hamdulillah from the learner who understand you know one of the few who will be here to talk karate when I was a bit even Cerulean fusina amin sejahtera Medina, Maya de la sala de La Hoya de la fella hodja wanna shadow La Ilaha Illa la hula Shakira wanna shadow under Mohammed Abu or a solo salvaterra be he was Salam O Allah he was. He was heavy woman without water he either within a mirage below brothers and sisters in Islam assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato range Allah we continue with our
final, hopefully lecture on the salary hane, or the salary hadith of Bokhari and Muslim.
And last week, I mentioned the name of a very important person
that was instrumental
in establishing the SA hain of Bukhari and Muslim
as the most authentic collection of their life and sayings of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam his name was al Hakim, na suburi
as you can hear by the surname or the lacob he was born in neysa. Boo.
Like we say Madani, born in Medina machi, born in Makkah, masuri born in Egypt, pass daddy and so forth and so on live nanny, Suri Kp
born in Cape Town, so nessa booty came came from a city in the north eastern part of Iran, which today they've changed them too much had al Mashhad that time is known as these are both these are more was
at the time of our hacking board in 320 and died in 405. And as we know, even Buhari was born in 190, and died in
either 245 or something like that. So, Al Hakim came approximately 200 years
the death of Al Bukhari, which is quite a length of time.
And hockey man is a Bori of it is 194 to 2004.
But before I tell you about a hacker man is a very rich, very short history. I want to give you an indication
of what was happening at the time in the Muslim world.
And the Muslim world at that time in the fourth century, which is about 1000 years ago.
If I talk about the intellectual world of the Muslims consisted of Baghdad, Kufa, Basra, Nisa, boo, Mecca, Medina, and Egypt. So it was North Africa and the Middle East. That's where all the action took place. That is where people were discussing the issues of the day. People were discussing the issues of the day. And one of the issues was, what do we call ourselves
in the light of the fact that there was a group of people calling themselves she Abu Slim's. And we know miserable, or Iran was the bedrock the seat of she hasn't even the time of Al Hakim even 10 Buhari also tameable hanifa for a very long time. So our hacking lived at that time, when the she has with it.
And they consist, I mean, the she has today consists of less than 10% of the world's population, less than 10% of Muslim population are Shia. So the Sunni consists of approximately about 93 to 94% of the Muslims are Sunni Muslims. Of course, that doesn't mean that we should become complacent and say, well, they just only a few people, you know, we should leave them alone. No, it's not about how many they are. It's about what they believe and what the effects of those believes, could be and was upon the Muslim world. But let's first look at the word Sunni and we are imagined to Sunni and, of course, Sunni Islam.
We call ourselves a Hello Sunnah wal jamaa. Asana was Jama y
and a pseudo Jama loosely translated could could mean the people of the tradition
Meaning the people of the Sunnah traditions of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam the authentic sooner traditions of our masala that's our first port of call. Secondly, we believe in an oma of consensus of each ma that we agree on certain things. And the things that we agree upon as the listener will Gemma of course is to read no doubt about that. We believe in the Quran no doubt about that. We believe in your authentic sooner, no doubt about that. But then also we believe that the authentic Sona is encapsulated is contained in the six books of Hadith.
Sahara, as they call it, the six books of authentic hadith, at the pinnacle of which stands the two outstanding collections of Imam Al Bukhari and Muslim which is called the Sahih hain. So he is one and Sufi hain is to sahale that is our belief. And we have certain other beliefs as well as an additional Jama. We believe, for example, that
as I will cover
that the Spanish front of the grave
we believe that Muhammad sallahu wa salam is a final prophet of Allah was founded and many other believes that were as father found the heat
that's how we call a listener. Well, Gemma So firstly, we have a listener.
And you will when you listen to the history of Islam, you will always find that there Oh, there was always a group of people are a group of scholars whose life's mission was to take the Muslim community always back to where they came from, to drag them away from where they going to the edge to put pull them back, back to the center. The center is always the Quran and Sunnah. That is our center we don't have a another center around which we revolve evolution was Gemma. Now
the study of Islam, like the study of anything else is divided into many parts, many areas of study. One area of study which you are familiar with, is of course, the study of law, which we call fifth and soulution. Where the study of law we have the study of the Quran, Al Quran, where study of Hadith bufala Hadith as you know, we also have the study of theology,
And what is theology?
When people say theology is religion, no, it's not religion. theology is the study of the nature of Allah.
And the nature of your belief, for example.
the people who who studied the nature allows wahana tala
and who studied
how we believe in Allah, and what we believe in as Muslims. There were three schools of thought.
The first is the motto radio elementary school of thought,
which is mainly advocated
by the Hanafi School of Islamic law. So each school of law had a theology. I'll explain what that means. Then there is the ashari theology
who saw the nature of Allah differently. Then there is a theory, School of Theology.
almanzora Alma to Reedy,
as you can see, was born about died about
500 years ago, less than 500 days ago.
He believed that the proof of Allah's existence can be derived from reason.
We can disagree with that. You said you can look at the world around you, as allows wanderlust isn't the Quran sunnery him is enough in alpha Wolfie and fusi him, hacked it by
Allah says and we will show you are signs
in the heavens and the earth and in yourselves which will convince you that the Quran is
The truth from Allah subhanaw taala.
The second belief of the Battle of course,
the second belief of the of the matter at school. They say he man is static Eman doesn't change.
It is your taqwa levels that go up and down. So you can't have to count one day no human and next day I know it's a people. Everybody's got the same amount of Eman, but it is your consciousness of a low swatara your commitment to your faith that changes and union I know that they also believe in this and all they believe I'm just giving an example. They also believe that the mind unaided and helped the mind itself without any external aims.
Or promptings can find out what is right and what is wrong can define can decide what is right and what is wrong. Let's see what the others say.
Then there was Abu Hassan al Ashanti.
You've heard of the Chinese people talk about it.
About Hassan lashari.
He spoke about the fact that, for him, divine revelation, or Koran is above human reason.
So it is not human reason that determines things. It is the Koran, which determines as opposed to the majorities.
They believe that the right and wrong cannot be decided by me and you. We can't say well, that is Hala. That is haram unless it is no Quran and Sunnah. We can't say this is right. And that is wrong was I think it is right. You can't think something is right.
And you can't think something is wrong. No, it is your ethics and your morality is derive from what Allah says is right and wrong.
Because imagine that we decide what is right and wrong, which I will decide for myself what is right and wrong, and you will decide what is right and wrong. And then somebody will come along and say everybody's right and we are the tolerant.
That nonsense argument, stupid, nonsense argument. How can it be if you put the Bible in the Quran next, which I suppose is right.
And you should be tolerant?
Either the one is right. And the other one is wrong.
Either Mirza Ghulam Muhammad is correct, or Mohammed Salim is correct.
You can't say both these writers be tolerant say, Well, you know, we live in a world everybody's got their own opinion.
That that is how we learn. We don't say that we have
a book and as soon as to which we refer. We don't say that. But what is Allah say? Is it right or wrong? Now the ashati say, that's the crux of our belief, our theology, that right and wrong consumer laws quantum.
The Chinese also believe that the Quran is uncreated and eternal. Now, the sharp theories are linked to the Chinese. Most Japanese, if not 99%, say that they follow the aqidah or the theology of the ash at school of thought.
Meaning that they believe that divine revelation the subject to reason is above reason that right and wrong is decided by Allah and the Quran is uncreated. Now for me today and for you, these are not important. The last one is not an important argument.
Because there are many people who believe that
the Quran is created by our loss function.
And why is there this confusion? Why do some people say the Quran is created
something outside of Allah, the main and established
and other people say no, the Quran was always there, the word of Allah was always said will always be there, it is eternal
arguments that nobody can win. Why not? Because there are arguments which concerns Allah and Allah.
On the other hand,
the essence of Allah, who knows
and whether the Quran is created uncreated is not going to make you Muslim or non Muslim. And point of fact is, it's an unimportant argument. Although at the time in the fourth century, it was such a major argument people killed each other because of the value.
People were excommunicated, and so forth, and so on.
So I am of the opinion My own view is that the Quran is created is made by laws, clever law, everything. besides Allah subhanaw taala was created by laws, the art is created, the world is created. Gentlemen, janome is created. Only Allah is eternal and uncreated. If you say the Quran is eternal and uncreated, you're placing something equal to Allah was Carlota so you can be ashari and disagree with some of the views of Dr. Sharon's nothing wrong with
your and my theology for which we will be answerable. I wasn't gonna ask you this grammar. Did you believe the Quran is created? Or no, no.
Allah is gonna ask you one question only.
Who was your Illa?
And who was unity?
Isn't it? We know the cover. We're gonna ask about Did you believe the calculator? Did you believe there was reasonable? No, no.
I believe that both views of the majority and the school should be brought together. You can't degrees in order the argument you can't say well, it's all about divine revelation I think about reason. Because the reason the Koran
if we do not apply our reasoning to the Quran, our mind to the Quran.
How could you live by the Quran,
la la casa de baru, Allah says, You must think about the Quran, you must reflect upon the words of the Torah, so that you may understand. So Islam as a balance between reason
and divine revelation, both of them goes together,
conduct the one without the other.
Then the third school of thought is the Atari. Now we had the Alma to really which is mainly hanafy, where the ashari, which is mainly Sharpie.
And then is the School of Theology.
And I said, theology means
how we believe in the nature of Allah. And I said, I wasn't explained that.
What is the nature of Allah?
If Allah subhanaw taala says that he sits on a throne on the arch, what does it mean?
If allows for Allah says
that he descends
to the first heaven every morning before fudger.
And he listens to people who ask forgiveness, and he stretches out his hand of forgiveness to them.
What is it me?
How do we look at that? is Allah in something which is in time and space and he sits on the throne? Does he physically come down to the first heaven?
When we say Allah, his hand is above your hand is Oliver hand?
What you will love the face of a lesbian face?
Now the theologians try and look at it and say,
no, it's up like that. It is like this. It is like that. It's like that. For you and me.
That's the problem.
For you and me. We don't know where magic is, as far as I'm concerned, we say only Allah knows. The manner and the way and the how and the what are the elements? Why do we say that? Because we know it is part of the
and levena umina. Bill.
It is part of that which is part of our Eman to believe.
So the answer is,
and I agree with him, they say we do not delve into theological speculation
or this ality claim, you'll hear people talk about these things today.
Lots of people read the internet and they say I'm sorry, and I don't agree.
It's good to go to the internet. But
the Internet has got so many views which one do you accept and which one don't you accept?
They also believe that Allah has attributes the fact that he's merciful, that he's generous, that he punishers that is, and so forth and so on. We should believe as it is in the Quran. Some people say now is it part of him or not? part of him is his mercy. Part of
himself as the author of himself, people ask all these questions in the past.
One of the modern proponents of the author is school his use of alcohol is a use of alcohol, many others before him,
but basically the school is
when our last founder speaks about himself, we don't interpret it. One day inshallah, when we meet allows for hunter Allah, we will know what the truth of that matter is.
Now I say these three tools are the Orthodox Sunni schools and matteri the alleged genocide which one you're not if you're a chef or you're a child you didn't know that did you? Know You know?
If you're 100 euro maturity if you didn't know that, I'm informing you free of charge.
I'm an attorney. Although I'm a chef
and there is a non orthodox called the mini nun author In other words, the listener well Gemma doesn't recognize him to be part of the Allison novel Gemma.
One of them is called the Martha Zilla
use the word mark as you like people call other people Mark Zilla.
What are the mark watermark at the mortality law school of thought was started
by a man called LaSalle.
ignatov lived in Baghdad at the time, was a student of Hassan Al basri, the great scholar of Baghdad, and eventually he withdrew himself from the circle of his teacher, because they had they had the argument the student while one day asked hassanal basilea question. The question asked was, sir,
if a man commits a sin, is he still a Muslim?
So has not been said of course, he remains a Muslim, he's only a sinner makes Toba. What is what I count if a man commits a sin is is not a Muslim anymore. unbeliever can call him a Muslim anymore.
So the question that came from has no boss, he was a fine if you say. So that's why teachers sometimes have a hard time with their own students.
So the teacher says to the student has a bursary system. So you say this man who commits a sin, He now becomes an unbeliever. Now, how does he again become a believer?
Because you can't say you must read his calendar because he's really read his column in the next column. So if you say these annually, unbeaten how so the argument stopped there, and why it says, like some students do to the teachers. He said, I don't agree with you, I'm gonna leave your circle. And he
started the Marta Zilla theological movement. The word Botticelli comes from the Arabic at dissolve, which means to leave, he left the company of his teacher, and he started his own movement. And his theology is based on reason and rational argument.
Now, I'm telling you what the situation was like in the time off and hacking and isabody that is backyard ninja border co founders.
At that time,
in Iraq, or in that part of the world, Hellenistic and Greek philosophy at a very, very strong influence.
Because Muslim Central discovered the works of Aristotle of Plato, they read it, they translated it from Latin and from Greek into Arabic. So and if you know a little bit about Aristotle, in logic and, and about Plato, you will also be impressed by some of the ideas which they had, they were very great thinkers. So the Muslims are very impressed by them. And while he was one of them, and he started using Aristotle in logic on
Elmer calavo theology,
and he came to the conclusion that you reason your mind is the final arbiter in distinguishing right from wrong, your mind tells you what is that of course we disagree with it.
You have brought Greek and Roman philosophy and his reasoning, and
eventually the Mattila movement died out.
People are very Muslims tend to be very conservative
in the things they believe in.
What should we believe we should believe?
That Allah subhanho wa Taala
which is the Quran,
which is a perfect book.
Allah revealed this to a world
that is completely
and we are
to manage the world in terms of this perfect book, where you have imperfect worlds and a perfect book in between this is there's a gap This is face. And this face Allah has given to us to use the words of the Quran without reasoning in order to manage the world
unless you unless you supply your manual supply your mind
and hackings roll now we've got no hacking left in this in all the time. She are very strong at the time.
And we know the differences between us and them
are quite strong. We're very deep differences with the beliefs of the Shia because you know the shear believes that
do not accept and abubaker is the first halifa no Armando I know of man except Ali Ali. And they are divided into more than 73 six, they are divided alone into so many sects that believe in different
kinds of things. Of course, they all they also do not accept Bukhari and Muslim as the
most authentic collections of a hadith they have their own a hadith.
And these are the chain of narrators that we have said to you last week that every Hadees goes back via chain to the Navy salatu salam.
So burera would be in the chain of the lightning Massoud would be the armor, all the Sahaba would be in the chain will go right down and came right down to number five a Muslim and they decoded it.
The Shia on the other hand, and we believe that Hades can only be given to us by Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam the Shia believe no, they say that
just as there is a solemn
word is called Harry's. So the word of his family is also called Holly.
So all the children of the nanny
wound the Shia called Imams and the 11, imams.
Whatever they say, is also equal to what the prophet said.
So the CIA has a body of Hadith, which includes the sayings of the Imams on the same level
as the Navy. So
we asked them why this is the answer. They say that segnale
grew up in the house or Larson.
So then Abby taught him all the secrets of noble worth of prophethood and Allie pass it on to Hassan and Hussein. So they the household debt of the Prophet has this special connection with an additional Solomon therefore, what they say should be equal to
what the Navy Salaam says. We say no, howdy. When we say Kala Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam only that for us is the Sunnah of Islam and sooner Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, they have 11 imams. They are the 12th Imam who somehow disappeared
and they are waiting for him to come back is gone into what they call occultation. And you will come back they say as the MADI and he will reform the world at the time. So that is
They also also do not accept all the Sahaba
s hubbub rahmatullah wa sallam, then distinction between Sahaba and haba. They declared some Sahaba not to be Muslim at all, and so forth and so on. And they regard Alia of course as the successor of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they're about 6% or 7% of the Muslim population presently. Now let's come back to say hi to Buhari and Muslim
and the men are hackings role in
the establishment of
giving Buhari and Muslims Hadith such a high standard
because you must remember
there is a Mata Zilla there is a Sharia is the answer is all these people have their own views of Hadith that they own is the humble is the humble is I will call the we could call them the over Muslims. Over is a German word which means
the outstanding best example of the Sunni Muslim at the time was called
With humble ease was humble. For him there was only Suna and Keira
and non interpretation of the nature of allows
for, and Hakeem first of all Buhari and Muslim represented the pinnacle of howdy crism.
on it remember he said they reach the highest levels of bringing to us the the cream of the words of habits are awesome, but they were not infallible. Remember this? Where is the she I believe that they imams are infallible. What does it mean? It means the moms of assume what does that mean? It means that the moms was like Mohammed Salah did not make any mistakes.
is exactly like the Navy so a lot of them
starting with segnale kurama lava? No, even as far as Bukhari and Muslim is concerned, they were human beings like me, I knew
they were born laserable they loved they, they were just great students of Islam.
For example, Al Hakim says that Mr. Muslim quota Hadees, which we all know
in is a Muslim. Wearing the Navy salatu salam says that the first three generations will be the best generations.
Al Hakim says there is a remarkable flaw in this hadith. Somewhere in one of the narrators who narrated the Hadith, there is doubt.
Also, Al Hakim says that if this had these should be absolutely correct that the three generations are the best generations. Then what about us? Are we automatically the worst generations
in Abu hanifa didn't live in the best three generations? Not in the Moksha
not at the amount of Assad in order to great so what about them? Shame? No, he says Professor serpo never condemned
1000 years of Islam to second class status doesn't make sense. It means that we will not strive for perfection he will say well perfection was the three generations after the Prophet so sorry. That's it, you know, we all the same now. No, no, no, no. We are still striving to become the best of the best.
This despite the fact that Allah Hakeem considered Bukhari and Muslim to the bait to be the base. There was no blind admiration. You know, today you have a shift. People have shifts. They said this is my shift.
I can imagine even Buhari is my chef.
I'm sure we'll find out for today. My probably our worship even became today. I mean, if you can demonstrate chef who knows my chef by Jessie Manuel Buhari, said Mashallah.
Yeah, Al Hakim
had such a high regard for him to hire a Muslim yet.
He was unbiased. He was so unbiased that listen to the following. Now he lived in the land of the Shia.
And at that time, anybody who sympathize with the Shia will automatically excommunicated by the Sunni community.
the mother will be followed when he was a judge in Yemen. He one day made a statement to say that he agrees
with say nalley against muawiya that he supports segnale against La Jolla
in terms of the Halifax
windy Halle, Halle fire that was sent in by the darwinia Imam Shafi said this.
part of his army to Yemen to arrest Imam Shafi and bring him to Baghdad. in chains. There were three or four of them okay.
And the charge was
A charge was penalty was death. See mom Shafi was condemned to death. The first three men with him were executed
for Greenwood segnale because that made you Russia.
So people thought when it came with attorney boom, I'm shopping when he was late to the gallows. Because we know he loved you know, he left. He was never executed. He appealed to this Khalifa and said, you know, we are family
We are from the offspring of Abdul muttalib You and me. We are from the family of Mohammed Salah Salah. And just because of that halifa felt sorry for him and laid him free. That's one of the reasons that he left Baghdad and of course he went to to Egypt. So you can see how serious it was to support anything to do with technology
There are two incidences which happened in the time with the Navy some concerning segnale one was hiding.
Now Emma, and Hakeem
is extracted from the shot from Buhari and Muslims. The criteria or the rules for deciding whether Hadith is authentic or not. And Al Hakim applied this to Hadith enterprises to this hadith called the hadith of Thai Hadith of the of the bird.
Maybe Sallam one day I had
cooked a chicken it was only eat the chicken masala and chicken must have been quite the delicacy at the time because he made the following the Prophet said, Oh Allah send me your most beloved
person on the earth to come and share this chicken with me.
I know there was a time when I was a small boy that we never shared our chicken.
We are chicken only on a Sunday. That is only for the family because not enough chicken. Chickens grew up in the yard and they were very small. They were injected with saltwater. Given all kinds of stuff that make them fat they were just chicken
so so it must have been a delicacy that is seldom attached to so who walked into the doors and
so he records of course, soon as you abandoned him, how could you could add support in alleys boarding the Schiehallion he said but the Hadees is from the authenticated according to the rules and criteria laid down by Imam Al Bukhari and Muslim
but he was a very strong man or hacker based on the very strong following. Then the second Hadith he also included as an authentic hadith was the Hadith, which you probably all know Hadith offers a deed, a deed home, ready home.
A deed means pond or pool water
so that the home was a place where there was a pond or a pool of water.
The Navy says Allah might perform this hedge and he was coming back to Medina
at this place rather form whoever was with him he called them together. And he made the following speech which included the following words that
I am your Mola prophesied. I'm your Mola Mola means master Kusama is it I know bola and after me it will be omo la
This is in great support of the sheer belief that it should be the success of the nervous system. And Al Hakim wrote this and said this is authentic hadith I'm not interested with IT support this one or that one and that should be the attitude of a Muslim. It's not about who it's about Muhammad Rasul Allah is the words of Mohammed Salah doesn't matter if it's against me or for me, that's not the point. The point it is authentic. So this shows that Al Hakim rose above the biases of his time he didn't say well now I'm gonna go this hadith you know it supports that that one or the No no, no. He quoted only headings which was affected.
Also on how to believe that Imam Bukhari and Muslims did not include all the authentic hadith so what he's saying is if you find a hadith outside of Ohio and was in Georgia is done in Buhari therefore is not correct. No, no, no, no. They absolutely authentic hadn't found in other collections like if novalja nasai theory MIDI, they have many a hadith Bukhari and Muslim as I was just recognized as the pinnacle
of the collections of a Hadith of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So what, what happened
because about hacking stature in his community
He, because he rose above everybody else.
And at the time, as I said to you,
the matalas, the Asha rights, the humble as the over Muslims, as they call them, meaning the outstanding examples of Sunni Islam or Sunni Muslims rights.
They were fighting amongst each other, but who was right and who was wrong. Sometimes he got violent. Sometimes people died, especially in the cities of Baghdad, cufon, Basra,
but it was one three that bound them together. Of all the things was the Quran. The other threads which bound all these groups together was that Al Hakim brought Bukhari and Muslim to such a stature, that all of them accepted it.
So all the disparate groups in the community
agree with Al Hakim that Bukhari and Muslim was the canon of the prophets authentic sermon.
So are hacking. He left for 84 years at a long time to live a long time to establishing
nearly 200 years out of the development Buhari so he was the one I'll hack him we should thank for bringing to the world
and establishing the Sahih hain as the authentic
or most of the authentic Sundar Mohamed Salah, listen.
You will be aware of course that there are many people who say
and of course, you know Buhari also agrees that the Quran is was not create was uncreated. I mean, he's a created word.
He also said that he agreed with the author is
and with some other scholars, or scholars, that the Quran was created by Laos, Hong Kong.
What is very important to understand is
the cycle of history.
And that is why it's so important to learn history
that you will find when you read a strip Islam,
you will find
your position you will find
who you are, what you are, and what role you should play in your community,
in your society, in your nation, in your house, amongst your friends.
Because when you read a sieve Islam, you'll read
that there was always a group of people like Al Hakim
is more likely people like
I'm not gonna mention any scholars. I think maybe we'll just leave it at that and say that there are always people
the Muslims to re attach themselves
to the Quran and Sunnah Mohamed Salah.
And there will always be a sea of people.
There will always be a wave of people
who will try
through rational application and overuse of the intellect.
That the other things also as important as the Quran and Sunnah which should be taken into consideration.
And they will always be able to point out the dangers
of leaving such an important and valuable gift as Islam
to the vagaries
of how people think that people's opinion
you will also when you read these three, come to understand that sometimes the people you admire the most
will not flawless. They will not infallible, they will not prophets.
They also made mistakes. They also say things which are wrong. They also wrote things which are wrong. That's why gravy mama chef, he said that you find if you find the Hadith, which is contrary to what I've taught you then take what I've told you throw it over the wall and follow the hadith of Muhammad Rasul.
And this very sentence was saved by his contemporaries.
Those who preceded him and follow Abu hanifa say the same. Find a hadith better than mine, what I said follow the Hadith. If you're humble, he was different in that he was most emphatic in that. He said, If you find
an opinion of somebody
and you find a hadith which may not be so strong rather follow the Hadith which is not from and reject the opinion of the person who gives his opinion on a subject.
we may have discovered today that the three first generation target Hades is not as flawless as we thought it was, that it confirms for us that we can be part of the Salafi movement don't have to go back and sell we part of the first three generations now. We are Salafis of today.
14 centuries away from the hegira Mohammed Salah Salah, because people always have this idea, you see, they say, Oh, they live in the seventh century. Oh, they don't move with the modern world. Oh, the prophet said, well, three generations with the best generations. So we should live like them dressed like they eat like they sleep like them.
That's not the case. The case is Islam. And Muslims must recreate and reinvent themselves as the base community until the end of time.
wherever they live, you can see baramulla makhija data live in Makkah, you know, maybe they it's you know, there's no facade ism, you'll be surprised or in Medina, or in Egypt, wherever you may go.
You're done with Islam. And that was a creation, a figment of people's imagination, say oh, there's that Islam and Dara Kufa.
And what about Daniel art which Allah created? What about dar of the earth? What about the whole of the earth which is a Masjid, but he didn't say there is. There is a man in Mecca Medina only way you can make Sarah know the prophecy and an undercooled omitted. The whole world is a Masjid. Now, if the prophecy the whole world is a Masjid. How could you divide that magic into a
place of comfort and play? How can you say America is Dara Cooper?
And arabis Daniel Islam.
It's our duty to establish
Dar Al Islam.
Because today we have no Islam.
You go today to Islam. You go to the to Bahrain.
And what do you find? You find that the Bahraini Government wanted to close the brothels in Bahrain? And who could blame and wanted to close all the drinking places in Bahrain? So who complained? Who do you think of blame? The London people who go the following days? The Saudis complain?
People who live in darkness and they say how can you do that? You know, we bought a special bridge to take us to you every weekend. So it is not
done list and there's no such thing. It is Islam.
We are commanded to build Islam. In Capetown, we must make Islam.
We can't say what is BioPharm in clairefontaine. Put a big fence around it. And we have a pool there where we will swim only and complete the job. And they don't see me ever in their life. Or I live now in Joburg. I'm going to leave the city of hotel and I'm going to live in a farm and slaughter lounge.
This is not Islam. Islam needs to live amongst the people and to live like the people and to establish Islam.
And finally, I want to give an example of that from a great man which I admire very much in my use monofloral man I'm sorry, which I always like to quote and record an overcoat. Because the man who really inspired me with the kind of faith which he had.
He was a great spiritual man.
And I remember one lecture he gave and he said he was invited to to New York to give a speech
to his his countrymen, Pakistan, Pakistan, and so they invited all the Pakistanis on that night because he was a great scholar, great guy.
And all the Pakistanis came 1000s you know, in Pakistan civic in New York, then in Pakistan.
I didn't quite get that. I think we don't fall behind but we the resume wall rocker
but he stood up in front of his countrymen and he looked at them and he said What is this
You all dress like Pakistanis. You always shall work Khamis. Why are you reading Shalwar Kameez in New York? How are you going to convert the New York Muslims nanosims to Muslims if they think that you must wait like this to be a Muslim?
Are you gonna get the New York Times and say he's going to look at it and say, Oh
well, I'm not gonna waste something on my eight o'clock at night. I live Islam but Jesus even has days like that, you know? I'm not gonna dress like he says people you live in New York, you must dress like the people of New York cover your own
butt dress like the humans
Sahaba went to
to China they didn't go there with a
dress like the Chinese. When they went to India, they dress like the Indians and when they went to Egypt, the days like Egyptians and we went to Spain visit photographs of people Muslims in Spain they dressed like the Spanish
so what is it what what was his message his message was
that it wasn't about taking your dress to other people
or establishing a city called down Islam. It is about establishing the beauty and the grace
of the character and noble character Muhammad philosophy that is the objective
and to bring people back to the noble character of Mohammed Salah well also on the ground inshallah that we are
that we establish
