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

and then every sort of a lot of sentences in the Hadith in melodica

00:01:02--> 00:01:09

la tada tada behind me is la O'Connor Khalid Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:01:13--> 00:01:16

Today inshallah we will deal with another Tavi

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

probably the most famous study

00:01:21--> 00:01:33

that we all know. And just as a matter of introduction, a Tabby of course is the person who made the Sahaba didn't meet and Avi Salas Allah that made the Sahaba are made once or had any one of the Sahaba

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

rhodiola Allahu wa.

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

This Sahabi

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

Rahim Allah

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

was born in

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

Kufa.

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

I'm sure you all know a Kufa is very famous place nowadays in Iraq.

00:02:03--> 00:02:06

And he was born there in the year 18 after the hegira

00:02:08--> 00:02:12

He is known as Mr. Mo Lima. And at the moment

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

he's known as

00:02:16--> 00:02:19

the Imam of all the Imams.

00:02:20--> 00:02:27

And it's also known as the greatest Imam that ever lived. So great man, really speaking about today

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

a man who whose name is Norman

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

machine,

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

and Missouri Bernie

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

Norman ebene machine as miserable

00:02:42--> 00:02:45

but he's name that we all know him by his

00:02:46--> 00:02:59

Abu hanifa Rahim Allah, that his name as we know him as Imam Abu hanifa, the founder of the first school of Islamic legal thought

00:03:02--> 00:03:12

a man who, whose foresight and methodology in teaching was unparalleled in the history of men up to the time.

00:03:14--> 00:03:15

In fact, if you read

00:03:16--> 00:03:20

if you study the methodology Mambo howdy Rahim Allah you will find that

00:03:22--> 00:03:24

to claim that he was

00:03:26--> 00:03:31

the greatest. They're not one of the greatest legal minds that has ever lived

00:03:33--> 00:03:53

is not an over exaggeration. When I say one of the greatest legal minds, I do not only mean legal mind in the Islamic sense but legal mind in the universal sense that Abu hanifa is students out Sean even modern day students in both in the east and the west.

00:03:55--> 00:03:56

And this man

00:03:58--> 00:04:28

his name was Normandy with the machine and Missouri ban on Missouri ban. Of course he's not an Arabic name. And Missouri ban is a name foreign to the Arabs, which means that his great grandfather was not an Arab, which means Abu hanifa Rahim Allah is not a descendant of the Arabs. In fact, Abu hanifa wasn't Ronnie. He wasn't avani this name is another name from Afghanistan. And interesting to note that in the first 300 years

00:04:29--> 00:04:33

of Islam, the most prominent scholars were non Arabs.

00:04:34--> 00:04:47

The most prominent scholars when you go to Medina, when you go to Iraq wherever you go in the world, if you study the scholars, you will find that most of them are not Arabs. And most of them they will not only not Arabs, most of them are freed slaves

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

will either lived in the house of as a hobby or as close to the target or lived in Medina. They become the became the greatest color that we know there. Many of the serien

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

The lottery all of these people will will not notice.

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

So what are the Arabs doing?

00:05:07--> 00:05:16

Arabs are busy with conquests. Arabs are busy fighting jihad in the armies conquering the world and making the world safe for the scholars.

00:05:19--> 00:05:21

In Abu hanifa Rahim Allah

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

was a man true to his face

00:05:29--> 00:05:34

was a man true to the Quran was a man true to the son of hamato larussa

00:05:37--> 00:05:41

he was the heads of the Navy alysus along with nav So Sam said,

00:05:43--> 00:05:45

in the middle initial malaria calacatta

00:05:46--> 00:05:48

Mira, don't be Muslim.

00:05:50--> 00:05:53

In America, the angels of Allah subhanaw taala

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

they shroud the wings over the student of knowledge.

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

And they do that because they are pleased with what he's doing. So the pleasure of Allah from the details on those who seek a role to knowledge and we know the famous Hadith of the Navy Seal of Allah,

00:06:14--> 00:06:14

that

00:06:19--> 00:06:22

the shortest and easiest route to the agenda

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

is what

00:06:25--> 00:06:29

is to learn. The shortest and easiest way to learn is to seek knowledge.

00:06:31--> 00:06:44

Now, many of you will sit there and look at me and say, Well, you know, not all of us have got the same brains. Not all of us can learn Arabic, not all of us can master the sciences of jurisprudence and Arabic conservator and so on, but that's not the point. The Navy saw a lot of sanlam

00:06:46--> 00:06:55

when he said tolerable enemy Korea de nada Cali Muslim, meanwhile, muslimah when he said that to seek knowledge is compulsory upon every male and female.

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

That's what he said.

00:06:59--> 00:07:01

He said to seek knowledge is compulsory.

00:07:02--> 00:07:11

He did not say how much knowledge is compulsory, or how little knowledge is compulsory. What he said was to make effort to go and learn that is compulsory.

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

To make an effort to go and learn that is compulsory.

00:07:16--> 00:07:35

How much we learn, that's in our hands, how much we imbibe how much we remember that in our lessons that's in my hands on your hands. My job and your job is to seek knowledge. Whether we learn it myself when I'm 85 I'm not gonna go to the doctor I'm not gonna go to the school because I have a bad memory. So I go there and I sleep

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

you're sleeping or not sleeping is on your hands. And

00:07:41--> 00:07:43

I'm not saying that I can even excuse to sleep in the gym.

00:07:47--> 00:07:47

But we that is

00:07:49--> 00:07:53

so it is not the amount is not when you become a molana at the end of the road

00:07:54--> 00:08:07

or become a monster at the end of the road. That is not the point of knowledge many of us think well, you know, if I go for knowledge, I must say I must become a mowlana has become a chef or something I must learn came to us and was able to read the you know, the white Serato make

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

the objective of knowledge. The objective of knowledge is basically only for you to make the effort.

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

And of course the more effort you make

00:08:19--> 00:08:35

the greater the health of Allah subhanho wa Taala so these great people were not just great people they were great. And that which made them great wasn't themselves. It was the son of Mohammed Salah in the Quran which Allah Allah revealed to me.

00:08:36--> 00:08:41

Yesterday we live in Iran. Yeah, gala, Moana, Valentina Alamo in Nevada.

00:08:42--> 00:08:47

Hello, progressives are those who know and those who don't know equal, no,

00:08:48--> 00:08:52

you will work you will have professions you will have qualifications.

00:08:55--> 00:08:59

If you are qualified, another person is not qualified for the same job. You are better than that person.

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

You become the CEO and he can become the CEO. That's why they are workers and employers and employees, employers and employees. And what is the difference allow progressives Have you guys come in Medina Allah Mona Valentina Allah Allah, are those equal who know and those who don't know in Marietta that Coronel Alba,

00:09:20--> 00:09:24

only those who realize the difference? We have deep understanding.

00:09:26--> 00:09:31

So what are those persons in Charlotte today that will speak about it as deep understanding? Imam Abu hanifa

00:09:33--> 00:09:41

Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah started over the young men 15 years of age, very ambitious.

00:09:43--> 00:09:51

And like all young men of the years of age, whether it was in those days for today as only one objective in mind, and that is to make money,

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

isn't it? young people, a guy was new on everybody. You want to make money because we are doing

00:10:00--> 00:10:17

At our future, we want to have money in the bank, when you get married, whenever our children travel, do all kinds of things that we want to do. And for that we need money. So you have to have an objective in life that he wants to make money. So what did he do? His dad at a very small shop in Kufa studying material.

00:10:18--> 00:10:24

They were decorating that kind of shop. Smaller than that, but that can

00:10:27--> 00:10:58

set 13 he went to his dad, he said, he said, Look, man, I think we need to expand the business somewhat, you know, what do you allow me to expand the business physically? Take the walls out, make it a bigger shop, you know, do some advertising, you know, go on the internet. Well, there wasn't in the daytime, but I've been spruced up to business. So as far as I said, I'll give you permission, digital writer, did you consult me in whatever you're going to do? It fine. If I'm going to do in Sharla, I'm going to put software and effects into the shop. And what did he do?

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

At 15? He knew what he wanted to do. He had no objective he had to go. Not like today, you asked a guy 15 What do you want to do? Finally 72 months, didn't know what I wanted to do.

00:11:18--> 00:11:25

He knew what and what was what his objective becomes to become the best material shop in the whole of Kufa.

00:11:28--> 00:12:01

And what was his first question he asked his father, they say to his father, who is the best material merchant in the city? If I want to go and learn the tricks of the trade, where do I go? He didn't say about that you teach me or I will just teach myself No. And his father pointed out in the best, the best business people in the city of Kufa. Within two years, Abu hanifa was the richest material merchant in the area. To give an example of our rich he became these clothes that he wore was 15,000 Dena, a de nada gold coins, but silver coins.

00:12:02--> 00:12:15

30,015 131,500 dinar. I can imagine what he looked at as a young man who's young, and it became Of course, because of his riches rich people become famous, and they say it well.

00:12:20--> 00:12:24

No one ever was on the trajectory of becoming even richer and richer.

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

And one day, one of the great

00:12:30--> 00:12:41

shakes of Kufa. And of course you know Kufa was the city it was mobis indomitable hottub became the center of the of the abasa. Khalifa Khalifa

00:12:42--> 00:12:49

he met this man imagine, look, I see you martial law, you're famous and new martial law, young man and rich.

00:12:50--> 00:12:51

Where do you learn?

00:12:53--> 00:13:15

Who's your teacher? To say my teachers in the city is the best material merchant in the city? And he taught me all the tricks of the trade the chase, no, no, I'm not talking about your business. I'm talking about who teaches you the dean Who is your, your daily teacher. So I don't have a DD teacher. I never thought about my life. I have a different life, you know.

00:13:18--> 00:13:36

So the man sitting but you know, I see new face, I see the new dean in your face and you have knowledge in your face. And with your acumen in the way you both your father's business, if you can apply that acumen or that knowledge and that motivation to the dean, Mashallah I see that you can become a great scholar.

00:13:38--> 00:13:43

So he said to the man, what, you know, Islam is so vast, what should I learn?

00:13:45--> 00:13:57

And tell me what would I get outside? And then I said, Well, you could memorize. But what is my life after that? If I memorize 10,000 Hadees What do I do with that knowledge? So why do it for the love of Allah?

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

What else is there to learn?

00:14:02--> 00:14:18

Chef says, Well, you can become habits and for Ansible what will do for me in my future life? When I know it's Baraka and Allah reward me. What can I practically do with it? What can I become a car? Some people like my reading, although not like my reading.

00:14:19--> 00:14:36

What else is a to do? That's it when you can learn to sit what what happens to be finance he says, Well, if you learn the law, you can become a lawyer, become a judge become a Muslim. You can have a professional so it's all in that case. I think I'll do that I think I'll I learned

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

and went back to his desk and he said, I've decided to take a new route. I want to learn the Dean of a law topic and I decided to learn law law jurisprudence. point me to the dressed man in Kufa, where I can learn my skills and hone my skills and learn this part of the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:01--> 00:15:07

He attached himself to a man by the name of hammered initially a man hammered a man

00:15:09--> 00:15:10

rahima, hula

00:15:11--> 00:15:12

hammock

00:15:13--> 00:15:14

minister a man.

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

A man at that time was one of the great scholars of Kufa.

00:15:20--> 00:15:23

And he went to Minnesota to say I want to learn from you.

00:15:25--> 00:15:31

Not like today the check out to the market and teaches in his 10 people that cup No, he went and asked

00:15:32--> 00:15:38

and said Please teach me and whatever. What did he say to him? I say come after fudger every morning.

00:15:40--> 00:15:51

And I will teach you three questions of law. Only every morning you come every morning after fudger Meet me in the masjid and the magic of Kufa the time goes out 40,000 worshippers

00:15:52--> 00:16:12

very good all 40,000 worshipers of rojava when rigorously After three years of Sitting at the feet of his master only after function only three Messiah maybe wanted to be about the Lord, they say maybe about Salah out after three years hamotzi to him Come and sit on my right hand side. Such a mirage.

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

You just sit here.

00:16:15--> 00:16:45

And after 10 years Abu hanifa thought in Java, I think is my time I've learnt a lot now. I want to start my own class. So what they used to do is they used to be a lot of classes in the same as JT that you see today in magic in Macau when you go for Amara you'll see different scholars will sit at different spots in the harem in Medina also to find different orlimar setting and teaching different subjects. So in the big budget of Kufa, there were many scholars sitting and teaching and Abu hanifa being the man that he was wanting to have his own class.

00:16:48--> 00:16:51

So he told his teacher, I'm gonna have my own class

00:16:53--> 00:16:57

and hamotzi to him. Herat is a bit disappointed

00:16:58--> 00:17:28

that he was going to lose his children quadrophonic level class. So the next day when Abu hanifa came to his class, he had announced it, who was one of the people sitting in in this in the class use teacher Hammond. Hi, my name is Raymond settings. And he was he felt so shy that he learned this. I can't I can't teach my teacher, you know, I'm not going to have this class and went back to the class of, of hammered. And

00:17:30--> 00:17:32

as luck would ever tomatoes, go to Basra

00:17:33--> 00:17:42

and hammered when he went to Bethel. He said to Abu hanifa I want you to handle my class while I'm gone. And he was very happy. For the for the first time he was now going to teach.

00:17:43--> 00:17:49

And Hammad was away for one month. And in that month 60 questions were posting or body fat,

00:17:50--> 00:17:52

of which he could only answer 20 questions

00:17:53--> 00:18:02

40 questions he couldn't not. And he had to wait for his teacher hammer to come back from Basra. So he could ask him the answers to the to the 40 questions.

00:18:04--> 00:18:14

And from that day, he decided he wasn't going to his own class until the death of his teacher, hammered hammered. And he said for 30 years he learned under hammered in Navy Sullivan

00:18:16--> 00:18:32

and quantifies to say, after the death of my teacher, I used to pray for him, like I pray to my own mother and father. I loved him so much. I learned so much from him. They were never made to me to offer him like just like I made for my mom. And for my mother and my father

00:18:35--> 00:18:40

had even started his own what I would call academic institution.

00:18:41--> 00:18:53

It might not look like UC T or u WC. But it was, at the time, the highest form of learning that you could find in the Muslim world.

00:18:55--> 00:19:04

It was a veritable University. And I'll tell you how it was the university and how it differed with a teaching with teaching methodologies of people who came before him.

00:19:06--> 00:19:47

Now normally what a teacher will do is a teacher would sit down, write a book, come to class and teach his book, or teach from a book or teach a book. Of course we know at that time, 120 years after the era, there weren't many books. In fact, Islamic law of faith was in its developmental stages. Abu hanifa was the first to apply his mind to the extraction of the law from the Quran and Sunnah. Second was Mr. Malik Rahim Allah in Medina. The third was Imam Shafi Rahim Allah who started over in Baghdad ended up in Egypt, and Ahmed Mohammed, a student that came Allah Subhana Allah then was the first.

00:19:48--> 00:19:52

So he had a great responsibility to set the tone for was to come after him.

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

And what was his methodology? How did he teach? And I learned from this and you can learn from this

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

We can all learn from this

00:20:03--> 00:20:11

email mobile hanifa. This was his methodology. We used to have his class every day for 40 years in the masjid.

00:20:13--> 00:20:17

He used to have, he chose 40 of the brightest

00:20:19--> 00:20:38

people that you knew in the city of Kufa, when I say brightest, I didn't mean only scholars, I mean, politicians, electricians, plumbers, lawyers, agricultural, water specialist, all kinds of people, people who knew about how to dye cloth in the United because he was a clock merchant. So materiality was very important.

00:20:40--> 00:20:52

He was sitting in front of 40 of them, and the 1000 other students and what he would do he would introduce the subject he would say, today we will say speak about me give an example.

00:20:56--> 00:20:57

Today we will speak about

00:20:59--> 00:21:00

the sale of art

00:21:01--> 00:21:08

and today we'll speak about whether it is necessary to read the Fatiha in every

00:21:09--> 00:21:10

rock of the Salah

00:21:13--> 00:21:25

posed the question, he doesn't answer the question, he poses the question. So what happens now these 40 students who are also the students of howdy tunes, of course, they would all give the answers to what they think should be.

00:21:27--> 00:21:48

These answers would be recorded by one person and the final answer would be recorded by student or we used to. So the final decision taken collectively after everybody is given the input based on the Quran and Sunnah from the data in the Quran and Sunnah would be written down. So this is the final decision. And let's take the fact that

00:21:49--> 00:21:59

Abu hanifa this Hadith of the Navy so Salaam they would solve the Hadith of the nurses Elisa to Salam says la sala to the Muslim Jacobi Fatiha Rita

00:22:01--> 00:22:15

says, There is no Salah for the one who doesn't read the part of the Kitab la sala No, salam, everybody you all know that lardons no salamin sobre la la la la la la la la la cara, Cara.

00:22:17--> 00:22:32

So bowhunt eva poses a question to his students, he says. Now let's assume that a man reads the whole of Surah Baqarah in the first Raka but doesn't read the Fatiha and it is the oldest around in the second record, but he doesn't read the Fatiha

00:22:36--> 00:22:46

and he makes it sound as perfect as he can with the knee and roots and in the table and everything. But he doesn't read the fat Yeah. What do you say to me that he never made Sala

00:22:50--> 00:22:51

Fuddy duddies.

00:22:52--> 00:22:53

didi maxilla didn't

00:22:54--> 00:22:55

he made some

00:22:58--> 00:23:05

romance ads in the paper babies and results are a Baccarat. It's all of Alabama, of course in terms of our shopping.

00:23:07--> 00:23:12

But whatever poses the question, he says to his students, what do you what do you think the dynamics

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

the dynamics are?

00:23:17--> 00:23:33

So they say well, you know, he made Salah, but they say well, what about the Hadees of the Nambiar Salaam which is la hora nosara. He says he says I couldn't have meant zero Salah. We couldn't amend the President makes Allah like they didn't make some amendments.

00:23:35--> 00:23:39

But what about this ally made? The Salah he made is not

00:23:40--> 00:23:44

is not? No, no, no, no, is not complete.

00:23:46--> 00:23:48

The Salah is not complete.

00:23:50--> 00:23:52

So Abu hanifa then says

00:23:53--> 00:24:06

but now to resolve this issue where do we place this facha? How do we how do we place it? If it means that this is not bothan? Probably not complete. So have you ever divided

00:24:08--> 00:24:10

now for us Sharpies we have

00:24:12--> 00:24:36

some other photos not for devices, there are two categories. There's five which is right on top which if you leave it out your supplies bottle, if you don't actually do it, then there is logic logic is just one level below four and it plays the factor one level below four. So it says if a person doesn't read the facts behind the Salah, but he read any other surah of the Quran or verses of the Quran, so that's correct.

00:24:37--> 00:24:44

But now the student has Abu hanifa but on what basis would you get the thesis because Allah says in the Quran

00:24:45--> 00:24:46

Yes, sir Amina

00:24:47--> 00:24:51

read that is which is easy for you to read from the corner.

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

And then he says, but you won't find the Hanafi not reading the Fatah. It's very interesting.

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

In a discussion as to where to place alpha, so eventually the the note that was written down in terms of the Hannover fair was that, yes, it was easy to read the file you have not found out if you don't read it yourself, I will still be correct.

00:25:16--> 00:25:38

So that is how he ran his classes. So it was, it wasn't the hang of it that was both it was the thick of the cloth of the feet of the class of Abu hanifa Rahim Allah. And Abu hanifa didn't only teach fit, he taught also the poetry. He thought

00:25:39--> 00:25:58

it was odd. And he did it in this particular way. So the idea was, he would get all the Hadith scholars to sit in front of a karate class or the Quran scholars. So it is a very innovative way of learning and a very inclusive way of reading in a very, like I asked him the question, What do you call that

00:25:59--> 00:26:01

interactive way of teaching.

00:26:03--> 00:26:29

But it's one thing which he stands out for. And of course, he produced students, you read the Hanafi books, you will always come across Sahaba and his two companions, Abu Yusuf, and who else? Hamada Shivani. These way these two students, Abu Yusuf was the first man who wrote a textbook on government taxes before the West ever thought about it. I mean, this was in

00:26:30--> 00:26:31

in the eighth century,

00:26:33--> 00:26:36

when Europe was still you know, they were still living in caves.

00:26:37--> 00:26:56

He wrote a book on government taxation kitahara. The other side the other companion, Baba hanifa wrote the first MOOC on international relations, what the relationships are between countries and countries, and what the relationship is between Muslim countries or non Muslim countries.

00:26:57--> 00:27:02

So they were very advanced and were involved because of the teacher the teacher which they had.

00:27:03--> 00:27:05

But something which you may not know

00:27:07--> 00:27:31

is an Abu hanifa Rahim Allah not only confine himself to pass knowledge, you know, today we just did teach what is in the past, like I will teach you how to halifa Abu hanifa which is a man of the past. Why teacher by the Quran and Sunnah which happened, then revealed to Muhammad Salah in 70. In the seventh century, Mr. Abu hanifa, started a new subject in his class called future studies.

00:27:32--> 00:27:33

I can imagine this happened

00:27:36--> 00:27:41

120 years after the hegira Mohamed Salah lots of

00:27:42--> 00:28:04

future studies today over the university's modern universities are future studies. They look at the future. They look at how what will happen. I mean, we have if you don't have this, then you know the university every university every subject has to have projection of what may happen and how we would deal with the issues of land. So bonafide the future studies

00:28:06--> 00:28:11

I can only give you one example what what what what what would he what his future studies What did you do? What did he teach?

00:28:14--> 00:28:34

Abu hanifa realized that the Quran for the Quran and Sunnah to remain current. And for the Quran and Sunnah to remain vibrant. The Quran and Sunnah has to pronounce, not only on what happened in the past, and what is happening in the present, but also what may happen in the future. And this album is called Alma de

00:28:36--> 00:28:38

or alum, Mustafa Murray yet

00:28:40--> 00:28:44

Mr. berliet, meaning the scientists of the future knowledge of the future.

00:28:45--> 00:28:58

Students are very keen to know when he broached the subject, they asked him so Sir, what do you mean? Give us an example. He said, let's assume now that the whole of Iraq

00:28:59--> 00:29:08

would have been a desert like the Horn of Egypt would have been a desert. If it wasn't for the Nile and the Euphrates, the Nile in Egypt, and the Euphrates and which is what is

00:29:09--> 00:29:14

the Tigris, Tigris and Euphrates. They don't know if those two rivers drive tomorrow.

00:29:16--> 00:29:18

The war they will end the minimizer

00:29:19--> 00:29:20

nothing to fight about.

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

So honey was at with us, let's assume that in 20 years time, the waters of the Euphrates drop,

00:29:30--> 00:29:31

or dries up.

00:29:32--> 00:29:36

Let's assume the water dries up, just two drops very, very low.

00:29:39--> 00:29:49

And what he did was he brought together scientists and people of knowledge, water specialists, agricultural farmers, all these people who brought together

00:29:50--> 00:29:53

and they said for monthly draw up a blueprint

00:29:54--> 00:30:00

as to what should happen in the event that the waters of the Euphrates should

00:30:01--> 00:30:09

And he came up with a blueprint. And he didn't just keep the blueprint for his students. No, he presented the blueprint to the government of the day was

00:30:11--> 00:30:18

our sheet that was the golden era of Islam and he said, Sir, if this should happen in our time,

00:30:19--> 00:30:45

then this is what we should do. This is the expert report on what we should do. So how can you imagine it has happened in the time of Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah, and of course those who came after him, like Mr. Malik, and of course Bahama Shivani By the way, the one the one the hobby of Mr. Mohammed, Mohammed is a very, he became a teacher, one of the teachers of Shafi.

00:30:48--> 00:30:50

Not only did he become one of the teachers

00:30:52--> 00:31:04

he also went to Medina and studied at the feet of informatics, you can see the cross pollination of ideas. And that's why the study of frickin jurisprudence is such a vast subject to study

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

and why law somebody asked the question on Sunday

00:31:09--> 00:31:10

guys, no change in Islam

00:31:12--> 00:31:27

is is law a changeable variant? And we know there are certain things that doesn't change in Islam there are certain things certain knowledge that doesn't change. For example, the knowledge of allows the knowledge of to read

00:31:28--> 00:31:29

doesn't change

00:31:30--> 00:31:40

always had allies one and we believe in the duality of creation, the foundation of how to heat as Muslims is

00:31:42--> 00:31:52

the duality of creation What does it mean that you have to create it means there is a law and there is creation and the two trains on never beat.

00:31:53--> 00:31:57

Allah will always be there the whole of creation will perish eventually

00:31:58--> 00:32:03

kulu Manali have fun while the car was dropped, because

00:32:07--> 00:32:11

everything will perish, except the countenance of allows

00:32:13--> 00:32:14

meaning a lot of handling

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

these two are separated completely. There is no

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

joining No, these two are completely separate. There has been so since the beginning of time.

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

But of course today we live in a very dangerous time.

00:32:33--> 00:32:35

A time when people

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

try and create a gray area

00:32:40--> 00:32:41

we do not allow this creation

00:32:43--> 00:32:46

and they'll be circling Of course. Very subtle.

00:32:47--> 00:32:48

Because the greatest attack

00:32:50--> 00:32:54

remember she is not interested whether you mix a lot don't mix Allah

00:32:56--> 00:33:08

shaytan is not concerned if you fast or you don't fast. Shakedown is not very concerned if you do these things he's not concerned about whether you do the bad way he that's what he's concerned.

00:33:10--> 00:33:13

That's why you won't find shaitan and grandwest

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

not interested

00:33:20--> 00:33:30

shakers main function, what is the main function, his main function is to get you to move away from the to heat of a loss. That's that's his function

00:33:31--> 00:33:36

in the store. Why? Because if you if he can get you to

00:33:38--> 00:33:46

not separate the issues we didn't create and creation, then whatever you do is bottom because you're at the bottom.

00:33:48--> 00:33:50

So today we find that people come with these gray areas.

00:33:53--> 00:33:54

One of the gray areas is

00:33:55--> 00:33:58

something which is happening in our town, currently

00:33:59--> 00:34:03

is that people come and claim to be the descendants of Mohamed Salah Larissa

00:34:05--> 00:34:10

who says shall they be key no one just stopped, you know, become controversial again.

00:34:11--> 00:34:15

And it becomes controversial because you read this verse only. This is a verse of the Quran.

00:34:17--> 00:34:18

What is the version?

00:34:20--> 00:34:21

Anybody reads from

00:34:23--> 00:34:23

Latin?

00:34:25--> 00:34:26

No, no. What is it? What is the

00:34:27--> 00:34:28

Latin

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

what I

00:34:31--> 00:34:32

want to

00:34:33--> 00:34:39

talk about is do not mix up the truth with the untruth

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

don't create Grady's

00:34:42--> 00:34:44

walk up to go up and don't hide the truth.

00:34:47--> 00:34:49

Want to Talamo and you're aware of the truth.

00:34:51--> 00:34:52

So I have a

00:34:53--> 00:34:58

responsibility to tell you the truth whether you accept it or not. That is not my business that between you and Allah

00:35:01--> 00:35:13

So these people come here and they they blur the lines. Why would somebody come here and have as his greatest asset that he's a descendant of, so that you might think that these are qualities which other people don't have.

00:35:15--> 00:35:16

We can do things other people can't.

00:35:17--> 00:35:26

And it blesses your relationship with an FBI. Because you think, well, maybe this man's got some, even though he's a 300. And I don't know what to

00:35:27--> 00:35:30

say. But Mr. Mousavi Rahim, Allah

00:35:33--> 00:35:37

Murphy, Turman, I'm done with my family,

00:35:39--> 00:35:41

my wife on demand within my phone. So

00:35:43--> 00:35:45

let me finish what I'm saying. We're two minutes left.

00:35:51--> 00:35:56

So there's a blurring of, of, of elevation

00:35:57--> 00:36:01

and veneration of the person of Myrtle Eliason.

00:36:05--> 00:36:24

And I met a very good friend of mine the other day. He's an ex principal. And he was telling me how the landscape in Cape Town is changing very fast. And I can't recognize this law minimum. And now we can imagine the man came into the masjid. And as the man came to the merchant, everybody stood up and recited some salewa to something.

00:36:25--> 00:36:32

And he said, Afterwards, he went to one of his friends, and he said, You know, I'm also a descendant of a prophet.

00:36:33--> 00:36:52

But when I come into the magic, nobody gets up and makes Allah. I'm so disappointed. So the man said, What do you mean, you are the center of the Prophet, he says, I'm a direct descendant of Adam, which is the first Prophet of the Lord. And he had no mother and father, Allah created him from his with his own hand. And I'm a dial and nobody can deny that I moved out of our system.

00:36:55--> 00:36:59

But, you know, obviously, you know, the matrix images. Yeah, well, it's true, you know, but,

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

but this is what is happening today.

00:37:03--> 00:37:15

And is very people who come in and stole the sooner you say, Oh, we come in the name of Mohammed Salah. We come in the name Mohammed. We come in the name of Islam. We come in the name of whatever name they come.

00:37:16--> 00:37:18

And the first thing they do is they do be done.

00:37:19--> 00:37:31

The first thing they do is they do something which Mohamed never did. We just never did. We never never did us, you sheriff in every city in America regarding the hammer never did for 600 years, nobody did it.

00:37:35--> 00:37:44

You'd expect the man whose family the proper The first thing we'll do is you try to implement the sooner or do something which is which is concerned the student of Hamas, Alison,

00:37:47--> 00:37:48

do you know what I'm talking about?

00:37:50--> 00:38:03

So this is what is happening today. And that is why when you read the Quran, in Surah, Muzammil allows father says, Who are the fewest people will go to the people of this age.

00:38:07--> 00:38:17

Why? Because they would allow themselves to be misled by personalities, rather than to be led by the greatest personality of all.

00:38:19--> 00:38:23

And why is that so difficult because we are lazy to learn the sooner

00:38:25--> 00:38:29

we are lazy to learn the methodologies of people like the Mambo hanifa Lucia.

00:38:32--> 00:38:35

I cannot stress to you the dangers that are facing us.

00:38:37--> 00:38:41

When I see it every day and I see people flocking in you know what happens when people flock

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

I will say when people flock there's something wrong somewhere

00:38:47--> 00:38:54

with something wrong, something something terribly wrong with us, and the way we practice our deed.

00:38:55--> 00:39:02

So I want to say to you that and I always say this, my loss was always don't tell I didn't tell you.

00:39:04--> 00:39:12

Every time when Elisa made a statement, we gave a football or he made a lecture is to say al-mulla they've given you the message.

00:39:14--> 00:39:15

Allow us to

00:39:17--> 00:39:18

be

00:39:22--> 00:39:30

the governor you are not a watcher you are not you're only there Warner, you give him the news, good news and bad news. They must decide what is good for.

00:39:34--> 00:39:36

Remember, ultimately,

00:39:37--> 00:39:45

ultimately, when all the chips are down, when you stand is under the law, and your skating is empty.

00:39:46--> 00:39:47

And you have nothing to give.

00:39:51--> 00:39:56

And you look around you and your mother's dallied in your father's standing there, and you're

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

standing there and you say to them,

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

Have you made promises on the dinner you know? Even sorry man. Not seen I've seen to date today on your own today I'm on both standing and naked I got no time for you got no time to your mother ran away from your father. The only thing that will take you to gymnasium you said La ilaha illAllah.

00:40:23--> 00:40:33

Not by seeking it by saying believing in it and practicing. Tax your salvation. Man, Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah de la gente

00:40:34--> 00:40:49

de la, la La from here, he will eventually he will independence. But the man who creates gray areas in Islam, elevating people above allows behind our celebration, many brothers and sisters

00:40:51--> 00:40:55

surrounds Allah alone. A lot. How What do we say?

00:40:56--> 00:40:59

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.

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

Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.

00:41:06--> 00:41:12

Those are celebrations. We have no other celebration. So if somebody comes and doesn't say, Aloha,

00:41:19--> 00:41:26

do not raise me and lift me up and elevate me like the people of Isa.

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

Isa is completely destroyed. The boundaries between God and

00:41:35--> 00:41:38

God has become man and man has become God. We all know.

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

You say, Yes.

00:41:44--> 00:41:55

Where did we start? We start with the mother lode one year on one night. That's how we started. We now have more room every night, on every occasion at all times.

00:41:57--> 00:42:03

It's become an institution like the Trinity became an institution 300 years after is

00:42:05--> 00:42:14

instituted by the Romans said today, God will be three That's it, he be a son. He'll have a mother and a father, every Christian was believed like that.

00:42:15--> 00:42:15

We

00:42:18--> 00:42:20

should know because

00:42:23--> 00:42:25

this is important. This is this is it.

00:42:27--> 00:42:47

This that was created by man, this is important, because it came after. I mean, you're Hanafi you don't want to follow up a halifa completely. You don't want to follow traffic completely. You say you follow these guys. They never the distiller celebrated. Why not? Because there wasn't done by Muhammad Salam and it wasn't by the by the top over the top.

00:42:49--> 00:42:55

So the danger is that these things become so institutionalized like Christmas it become institutionalized.

00:42:57--> 00:43:09

Not as a holy day, not as a day to celebrate the birth of Israelis of Salaam versus the day to buy and sell a day to get drunk a day to do all kinds of things which is converted to Christianity.

00:43:10--> 00:43:20

Today we have the same now if you haven't done that, on our on the stadium, we're going to be free mixing of men and women on in the name of what goes on in the name Mohammed Salah la sala

00:43:22--> 00:43:27

de all in the name of Christ, all in the name of love of Christ. You love Jesus, you go to heaven in my view, drunk Rasmus

00:43:29--> 00:43:31

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
