inshallah we'll spend around 40 minutes talking about the importance of seeking knowledge.

00:00:44--> 00:00:52

And this is a reminder for everyone about the virtues and the excellence of seeking Sharia knowledge.

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

I would like to start my speech tonight by

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

mentioning a story.

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

I heard it from one of the Muslim speakers and I liked it. And I think it's very significant

00:01:07--> 00:01:09

about the importance of Sharia knowledge.

00:01:11--> 00:01:15

So this man said, it was reported that a college graduate

00:01:17--> 00:01:24

wanted to have a trip on the sea, wanted to look at the mountains around the sea and the nature.

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

And so he went to the front, the sea front,

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

and he

00:01:32--> 00:01:33

hired a boat,

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

or cruiser.

00:01:37--> 00:01:40

And then he sailed into the sea with the owner of the boat.

00:01:43--> 00:01:59

And this college graduate, seemed that he had was very excited about he just just graduated from college, he just finished school. And he was very excited about the knowledge he accumulated in his school.

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

So he asked the owner of the boat.

00:02:05--> 00:02:11

Do you know any mathematics? Did you? Have you studied mathematics? Do you know any math? He said, No.

00:02:12--> 00:02:16

So he said, man, a quarter of your life is gone.

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

And then he asked him, Do you know?

00:02:21--> 00:02:30

Do you know anything about psychology? Is it No, I never went to school I have, I have no knowledge about psychology. He said, half of your life is gone.

00:02:33--> 00:02:37

And then he asked him the third question. He said, Do you know anything about philosophy?

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

Is it No, not a clue.

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

And then when they were having a discussion,

00:02:47--> 00:02:51

the weather conditions started to change.

00:02:52--> 00:03:09

And a storm started to develop in the middle of the sea. And the boat boat was going right and left. So the sailor or the boat owner, so ask him a question, do you know how to swim? So the guy said no, he said, Your whole life is gone.

00:03:10--> 00:03:11

Your whole life is gone.

00:03:12--> 00:03:15

So this is the example of theory and knowledge.

00:03:16--> 00:03:25

If we study all subjects, of knowledge, we study all the skills of this worldly life. But we don't learn about the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:27--> 00:03:34

we might end up like this college graduate who might have lost his life because he did not learn how to swim.

00:03:35--> 00:03:46

For everything we do, the brothers and sisters in this life, we need to have the appropriate skills and the right knowledge. And this is a well known fact of this life.

00:03:47--> 00:03:51

Everything you do need some training, you need some knowledge you need some learning

00:03:52--> 00:04:11

when it comes to the test of your life, which is fulfilling the requirements of worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala that is the test of our life. We were created to worship Allah subhanaw taala and to serve Allah subhanaw taala in this life. That is the purpose when Mahalo to general is a lady Abu doon.

00:04:12--> 00:04:33

So when it comes to these tests the test of our life, then things are not different. We cannot worship Allah subhanaw taala with ignorance, we cannot serve the deen of Allah subhanaw taala with ignorance, we cannot rectify the conditions of ourselves, our families and our communities with ignorance.

00:04:35--> 00:04:59

And ignorance is not bliss. As some people say, it is not a blessing. It will never be a blessing. And as I said if we study all the subjects of knowledge, but we don't study the Sharia, the deen the Sharia knowledge. The fact of the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala the fic of the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then we will

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

We will I mean, we may lose ourselves and lose our families.

00:05:06--> 00:05:17

Oh, the Day of Judgment actually in this life on the Day of Judgment. Many people are suffering in this life, because they don't know what to do. And they don't know why they are here

00:05:18--> 00:05:19

in this life.

00:05:20--> 00:05:22

What is interesting about

00:05:24--> 00:05:26

sharing our knowledge with Islamic knowledge

00:05:27--> 00:05:33

is that it answers the most important questions in your life as a human beings.

00:05:34--> 00:05:51

It tells you how to make the most of your rule, the you rule that you were meant, or you're born to play in this life, Allah subhanaw taala created for you for a purpose. So this sharing our knowledge tells you how to fulfill the requirements of this role.

00:05:52--> 00:05:59

It tells you what is haram and what is halal. It tells you how to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala in the right way.

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

It tells you about the nature of your cute irrigator many people are lost in this life. They don't know why they are here who created them. And many people have doubt Yeah, people in the old days they used to have, you know, they used to believe in Jesus and Christianity and they had some, some attachment to the religion. But nowadays, many people are lost and they have doubt about everything. And they still have these questions in mind, but they don't want to believe they don't want to know the answers.

00:06:33--> 00:07:09

And some of them are confused, because there are many answers out there. So the sharing our knowledge tells you the nature of your Creator, the nature of your load, what is what are his qualities, what are his attributes, what are his names, what is the nature of his power, the nature of his knowledge, the nature of his wisdom, what kind of relationship you should have with your Creator, what kind of relationship you should have with your parents, what kind of relationship you should have with your neighbors, what kind of relationship you should have with your family, with your wife with your children.

00:07:11--> 00:07:52

So Islamic knowledge tells you about all these things. And tonight in sha Allah we would like to remind ourselves about the value and the excellence of Islamic knowledge in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Sunnah of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it is only a Reminder whether Quervain the kratom Pharaoh, and Momineen I know many of you are familiar with this hadith familiar with this ayat, but it's good to be reminded about these, you know, divine revelation. Allah Subhana Allah said in the Quran, your fire Allah who live in Amman hoomin como la Vina Oh to learn Mandarin shirt. Will Allah who we met Amma Luna Hubby, this ayah is in surah Tillandsia della

00:07:53--> 00:07:58

so Allah subhanaw taala is saying Allah will raise those among you who have believed

00:08:00--> 00:08:33

and those who were given knowledge by degrees. And Allah is acquainted with what you do with all what you do. So ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala is saying that he exalts the people of knowledge, the believers who believed among humans, among his creation, He will exalt the degree, the status, and the rank of those who believed in him believed in Allah subhanaw taala, the day of judgment and his messengers, and he would exalt the ranks and the status of those who have knowledge among the believers.

00:08:34--> 00:08:54

And if we look at the status that Allah Subhana Allah has granted to many scholars who lived in the early days just something to think about tonight. Think about Imam Malik Imam Shafi Imam, Abu Hanifa Imam Muhammad, their students Imam Bukhari Muslim term with the new measure and necessity Abu Dawood

00:08:56--> 00:09:19

laser blue saddle enamel, zeri shape Islam retainer, you have no time those am there are many scholars who passed away they have written their books in a moment, no a week and they have left a legacy behind whenever they are mentioned in a meshless in halacha and hautbois. People would say Rahim Allah Allah, may Allah have mercy on him.

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

And this is something that is happening till the Day of Judgment in every hotbar and think how many homes are delivered in the Muslim world? In every Halaqa and think about how many Hala cars are being done organized in the Muslim world. Whenever a Hanukkah is done, or whatever, the speaker usually would say, Rahim Allah, may Allah have mercy on him. The speaker would invoke Allah's mercy and blessings upon that scholar. Imam Malik doesn't know that we are mentioning him here, Rahim Allah remember, and I think my home loves me and you don't know that we're talking about them. But we

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

calls these dedicated their time and their life for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah subhana wa Atana decompensated them and Allah Subhana Allah rewarded them with this blessing. People are asking last panel to Allah to show on his mercy upon them, I said till the Day of Judgment till the Day of Judgment Jonnie hundreds of years. Imam Malik and Imam Shafi they lived in the early days of Islam in the second and the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu Sahaba a special people but we say Robbie Allah who may Allah be pleased with them, because of the honor of you know, living with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even those who are not scholars among them, whenever we mentioned them,

00:10:43--> 00:10:55

we say a lot the Allah Who and may Allah be pleased with him, because Allah Subhana Allah Allah told us in the Quran, that he's pleased with the Sahaba the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:56--> 00:11:30

on the Day of Judgment, their ranks will be higher, because their rewards in this dunya and in the hereafter A multiplied whenever the teaching a higher whenever the teacher Hadith. Whenever the teacher Sheree ruling and some people act upon this knowledge, then they will have a similar reward to those to the reward of those who acted upon this knowledge. This is what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith an authentic hadith

00:11:31--> 00:12:20

collected while Imam Muslim he said in this hadith manda ala houden fellow who can enter hoomin And as you remove Luzhou remain Tabea lei Yong ki su Valley Camino uzuri him shade up. This is in Sahih Muslim, he said we will cause others to a guidance to guidance will have reward like the rewards of those who follow him without that reducing from the reward in any way. So it does not diminish it does not diminish their reward. But he will get the same reward like those people who acted upon this Manish in the Quran, Allah subhana wa to Allah. And this is something beautiful about knowledge, did not command His Messenger to ask for an increase in anything except from except

00:12:20--> 00:13:08

knowledge. What could rub is it near edema and this is in surah pa in surah chapter 20 We'll revisit Nerima and say my MO increase me in knowledge. Allah Subhana Allah is talking to his messenger. He didn't say what Cora busied me mela or Allah increase mean wealth worker busy Tunisia was shot off and all increase mean honor. Even Taqwa which is something Jonnie very virtue is something that is required through the stack where we will internship please Allah subhanaw taala and go to Jana, but Allah subhanho wa Taala asked him to make dua to him, to increase human knowledge, Allah subhanaw taala knows that this knowledge will lead to Taqwa. Because Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran,

00:13:09--> 00:13:18

Allah, Min reberty He alone. It is only those who have knowledge among His servants that fear Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:13:20--> 00:14:04

So this is your one this is the only thing that Allah Subhana Allah Allah commanded His Messenger, to ask for an increase from this is the only thing which is knowledge. That is because knowledge is the source or the basis of all good, it is in many actions. Many actions will be based through knowledge will be based on the the commands of Allah subhana wa Taala and the commands of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we cannot achieve the status of Taqwa without knowledge. You cannot have you cannot be a more chatty, a pious person. Without knowledge you can't. Because you have to have knowledge. You have to know how to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala then you reach this

00:14:04--> 00:14:12

level of Taqwa. And then you deserve the reward of Allah subhanho wa taala. You deserve the Jana? Over blasphemy,

00:14:13--> 00:14:29

in the Sunnah, in the Sunnah, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to encourage his companions sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to encourage his companions to to seek knowledge. And he did it in many ways.

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

In many ways, he has used all educational or positive reinforcement or educational aides and tools to encourage them to seek knowledge. He did not leave anyway it was it was not very formal, like he would not come call people for a Halaqaat seven o'clock and then he will deliver a speech. He will be walking with someone and then he will tell him a hadith and teach him about story. He will be eating having lunch with

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

someone else and he will teach him about the Tafseer of an iron. It was very informal, but it was very powerful. His ways sallallahu alayhi salam to teach people were very powerful, very effective. And the Sahaba were able to memorize those, you know those stories, when he used to tell them sallallahu alayhi wa sallam men Salah Qatari Can you ever tell he elements to hell Allahu Allah, who are a funny lagenda I will say like he he rewear. For a Celica he thought Ethan elegent whoever embarks on the path of knowledge, or whoever embarks on the path of seek knowledge, Allah subhanho wa Taala will ease his way to shun. And this is a great this is a great honor. This is actually a

00:15:45--> 00:15:52

glad tiding given to anyone who is seeking knowledge who is involved in this business of

00:15:53--> 00:16:36

seeking knowledge for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala because you need to make some effort. You need to make some efforts if you make this effort for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala try to study the Hadith Study, learn the eye or the meaning of the ayat listen to some lectures. And you you know, you spend some time for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah then Allah Subhana Allah will make your way to Jannah easy, he will make it easy for you. And this is a beautiful and glad tidings given to those who are seeking knowledge. And as soon Allah is Allah, Allah wa salam used to as I said, to encourage these companies in different ways. One time he said that he said that he left

00:16:36--> 00:16:51

with nothing. La has said it left with nothing. Atal La Romana for young people visa vie la What are you gonna tell lower element for who you are and yeah, cool movie while you're a limo a nurse. So he said Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:16:53--> 00:16:59

only two people, only two people or two persons are worthy of being invited.

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

A person whom Allah Subhana Allah has given wealth

00:17:05--> 00:17:18

and money and he has given him the power to spend it in the right way. So having wealth is not enough, you need to add that something you spent his wealth into for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala in the right way.

00:17:21--> 00:17:58

And a person whom Allah subhanaw taala has given knowledge has granted knowledge by which He judges and which he teaches. So, let hazard the 11th methane he said only these two people should be invited. He used the word has it has it usually has a very negative meaning very negative connotation. Because hazard the definition of hazard is to wish the Neymar that was given to your brother be removed from his hands and this is evil This is an evil feeling.

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

But here are some Muslim he did not mean this you know this has this haram jealousy. He meant ELLIPTA when you wish that you have the same thing. You see someone who is wealthy has money and he's spending in the way of philosophy panna cotta Allah is positing orphans and building masajid as spending in the in the waveforms pero Tala, then you wish that you have the same thing

00:18:24--> 00:18:38

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to congratulate his companions whenever he correctly answered a question. Like one time in Sahih Muslim Muslim collected the Hadith that he asked me babe look up.

00:18:39--> 00:19:25

And he's, he's Kunia was able Mondrian I will move there. My other movie it from Quran he said What is the greatest ayah in the book of Allah subhanaw taala and I will move very tightly to him AYATUL kursi he gave him the right answer. So he kindly patted him on his chest and he said filiana Alienware Apple move the congratulation with this knowledge you are among them. So he used to encourage them, and congratulate them, congratulate them, whatever the answer, he correctly answer a question or make the right judgment. He is to supplicate ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala make dua to Allah subhanaw taala for them to bless his companions with the flick of a dean and Phil COVID. Deen is not

00:19:25--> 00:19:47

the fact that we find in the books of faith is the right understanding of the deen have to live my best sort of the Allahu Anhu said one time that Rasulullah saw Selim the Prophet of Allah embraced me and he said Allah Hama Fatah youfit De Waal Lim who checked with O Allah grant him the right understanding of the deen

00:19:48--> 00:19:58

and hear the right understanding and feel coffee Dean is very significant to one because many people seek knowledge, but they don't seek knowledge in the right way.

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

They might be actually misguided

00:20:02--> 00:20:07

because they are not. They are not dealing with knowledge in the right way.

00:20:08--> 00:20:20

They might become arrogant. They might have a wrong understanding of the deen. So so the right understanding of the deen is a NEMA from Allah subhanho wa taala. And this is the dua that Allah says Allah made

00:20:21--> 00:20:23

for even our best Abdullah have not best

00:20:24--> 00:21:11

he says Allah Allah for failed for dinner I Lim who checked with Ali motel we teach him the right understanding of the book, bless him with and with the knowledge of the Book, which is the Quran. And that's why most of the Tafseer we got in the books of TF series coming from even the best. Most of the MUFA serine, who narrated the TFC is the meaning of the ayat. If you go to tavsiye recovery Tafseer of nicotine, most of them are the students. If you have ever been I bet some of the hola Hana This is the baraka of this dua dua for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he used to make dua for anyone who heard his sayings and conveyed them as he heard them. Not that Allah homerun

00:21:11--> 00:21:36

sent me I'm a quality for at deck MSME ah, is it may Allah brighten the face of someone who heard my saying retains it and then conveys it as he heard it. For Uber Sammy in in mobile, he said someone who would receive this knowledge could be more knowledgeable than the one who is relating this knowledge. So someone would hear that the hadith of former Salah Salem

00:21:38--> 00:21:49

but he's not a *y but what he what was his job is to relate how to to to convey the Hadith as he heard that the way he heard it, he doesn't add anything. He doesn't,

00:21:50--> 00:22:32

you know, omit anything from the Hadith he does not delete anything from the Hadith. But the person who would hear the Hadith from him could be more knowledgeable, could have more understanding the power of understanding the Hadith. That's why we have some Sahaba who memorize many a hadith venerated 1000s of Hadith but we don't consider them fuqaha they are not fuqaha but there are some other Sahaba did not read generate Yanni as much, but they are fuqaha Allah Subhana Allah has blessed them with their understanding of the Dean like methanol. Normally when you compare the narrations of Abdullah Muhammad or the narrations of Alma Mata himself, who is a Khalifa and a great

00:22:32--> 00:23:05

mystery Abu Bakr, he was mache. When you compare the numbers of narrations that they have narrated with the narrations that Abu Hurayrah narrated, there is a big difference. Abu Huraira memorized more than 5000 Hadith, but they are more they are they are they are. They are. They're more knowledgeable than him when it comes to FERC and detecting Sharia ruling Allah subhanaw taala has created people and he has given them different abilities. And that's why we complement each other as a Muslim Ummah. Yeah, someone could be very

00:23:07--> 00:23:34

methylene could be very powerful in the science of Hadith. He got some knowledge he understand he has a better understanding when it comes to the Hadith, but another scholar he's not and he's not that knowledgeable in the science Hadith, but who could be blessed with a physical with the right understanding. So he would he would get the Hadith from that scholar and he would deduct or derive many Messiah and many beautiful matters from from this hadith.

00:23:35--> 00:23:43

Where is beautiful Hadith that Rasul Allah is so limb has mentioned. And it is found in Sudan, Timothy, and some other books.

00:23:45--> 00:23:47

And this hadith

00:23:48--> 00:24:30

was narrated in different generations, many narrations and the mushroom hold the majority of the old ama they said it is Hadith. So he electrical Alberni and some other scholars they said it is hand side they are the majority. Some of them they said it is the Eve like him and materially he believes himself on Earth at the Hadith he believes he believes that the hadith is not so here, but there are some parts of it. Many parts actually of this hadith were narrated in some other authentic hadith, but the Hadith has a very interesting story. So in this hadith Imam maternities narrating from some people there is a chain of narration and until he comes to antisubmarine Kathir he said Allah

00:24:30--> 00:24:59

Kadima, rasuluh Miguel Medina T Allah ebitdar, the Buddha used to live in Damascus in the mosque, the capital city of Syria nowadays, he spent the rest of his life there and he passed away in Damascus. And he's a grave now is in Damascus, Abu there there are the Allahu Anhu was one of the Sahaba so called the Mirage alone a man came. He said the man came to visit Abu darda visit Abu darda when he was in the mosque in Damascus.

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

So he said out there I told him my academica Yep.

00:25:05--> 00:25:10

He said What brings you my nephew? You're gonna hate was, it was a kind of

00:25:12--> 00:25:42

you know, it's it's a way of showing respect to the person when you call him usually a time trying to tell him that we have a closer relationship when you show him we treat him with in a friendly way. They're trying to be courteous with him. So it was their way to address each other. So he said my academic a Abernathy What brings you oh my nephew, he replied, a hadith that has reached me which you have narrated from the Messenger of Allah

00:25:43--> 00:26:32

so He said had even Bella honey Anika to Hadith one Rasul Allah assassin Karna MLG. Italy has written he said you didn't come for any need for any other thing. He said no. He said did you come for trade? Hell Geeta MLG, Italy Tiara Tina macadam Tality. Jonathan, did you come for trade? So he said no. So he said Indeed, I heard the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying man Salah coporate Ania batavi Here element silicone la OB pareo canal agenda. This first part is authentic. There is no doubt about it. It was collected in in Sahih Muslim and it was also narrated in many other authentic hadith. So there is no problem this parchment Celica you can yep Terry be

here Illman and we mentioned this hadith previously. He said men Celica captivity be here in one celuk Allahu ala Jana, whoever he said seeks knowledge or whoever takes a path upon which he seeks knowledge, then Allah makes a path or makes his path to Jannah makes it easy.

00:26:55--> 00:27:10

And indeed, he said the angels were in El mela Iike Allah Tada oshine Hatha rhythm Nepali bill in and this is a great honor he said the angels lower their wings in approval for the one seeking knowledge

00:27:12--> 00:27:39

and hear the early amount of course the explained this hadith and they said they show their approval by lowering their wings. They show their humbleness to this sequence of knowledge. It's a sign of protection because they have big you know, they're they have big wings and they when they lower their their wings it's a sign of protection like they are protecting the people of knowledge the people who are seeking knowledge

00:27:41--> 00:27:47

hotel, he turned off Wilma, his forgiveness indeed forgiveness is sought disabled there narrating from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he did forgiveness he sought for every for the people of knowledge. Buy everything in the heavens and everything in the earth, including fish in the water. Even fish in the water. I'm making this up for asking Allah subhanaw taala to forgive those who are involved in knowledge and seeking knowledge. He says well first of all, Annie May Allah be DECA Franklin Kumari Allah says Kovacic and he said the superiority of scholar over a worshiper is like the superiority of the moon over the other planets. What is what is the, what is special about

00:28:37--> 00:28:39

the moon? What is the excellence of the moon?

00:28:41--> 00:28:42


00:28:45--> 00:29:06

You know where you place your your steps. You know what to do in this life. You know how to deal with the challenges of this life.

00:29:07--> 00:29:26

You know how to treat your children how you bring how you, you raise your children, you know how to deal with your wife, you know how to deal with your business. So everything is your life. It's like a light. It's like you are walking in darkness in the darkness and you have some light with you. That is the example of sharing our knowledge.

00:29:27--> 00:29:59

And he said we're in niroula water fertile Ambia another aspect of their honor. He said in the roadmap waterful MBA and thesis scholars are the heroes of the prophets. Were in the Lula ma were in the MBA let me worry who dinner and wallah dear Herman and we know yes that the prophets did not leave inheritance behind them that word. That's why Abu Bakr of the Allah who I know he did not want to give the in the land that Rasul Allah says salam left behind to Fatima and his family members, because you heard the Messenger of Allah

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

Last hang, even though he loves the family of the Prophet, he loves them. But he said, This is what Rasulillah Salam said, and they have to obey the Messenger of Allah. He did not give them from the inheritance, the land that he left, he left a piece of land behind.

00:30:15--> 00:31:02

He believed that Abu Bakr actually he was against the family of the Prophet, but Abu Bakr was only obeying the command of his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because the Prophet did not leave a Durham, or a dinar or any wealth for inheritance, Allah Subhana Allah Allah made it this way, what is their inheritance is knowledge in NEMA Wirthlin in a waterfall and this is what Rasulillah Salam said, we are only legacy is this knowledge from an ohana, who *a behave in warfare, and whoever takes from his from from it, then he has taken a great chair. He has taken great care and this is a great honor to be here of the prophets and messengers because they are the best of Allah's creation

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

on this earth.

00:31:04--> 00:31:06

So in this hadith do not encourage us

00:31:07--> 00:31:10

to seek knowledge, I don't know what will encourage

00:31:12--> 00:31:20

us to seek knowledge. And we have to get one to make, you know, this, the project of our life seeking knowledge

00:31:21--> 00:31:40

nowadays, effortlessly is being reduced to a kind of entertainment. Many people nowadays, they come to a Halaqa whenever they have time, whenever they have time to open a book and read. So it's not that we're not serious about seeking knowledge.

00:31:41--> 00:32:24

I'm not talking about other people talking about myself and everyone, we were not really serious about, you know, seeking Sharia knowledge. And that's why we have many problems and we are facing we're facing as communities. And one of our suffering, one of our problems in every community is division matter, you see every community look at every community in the way that they are divided. They have many groups, they have many massages, they have the many centers, they don't cooperate, they don't work with each other. And the root of this division is the lack of Sharia knowledge. Because if we understand only one concept Mithila for them Keifa for example, the collective

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


00:32:28--> 00:33:13

for the Kiva what is beautiful about for the Kiva one for the Kiva if it is not for the island different from for the island for the island is individual personal obligation, everyone has to do it by himself like salad, or giving zakat, no one pray can pay on your behalf, nor can give your cat on your behalf. If you have money you are able to give it or fasting but further Keifa if a group of people do it, then the rest of the ummah will be relieved, like method of praying, offering Salah to janazah on someone who has passed away. If someone passes away in the City of Calgary and no one offers Salah till Janessa on him, then the whole community of Calgary Muslim community will be

00:33:13--> 00:33:31

sinful. Everyone will be taken to account because there is a Muslim who passed away the City of Calgary and they will offer Serato Janessa on him. But if a group of people come together 200 people 300 people and they offer Janessa on him, then the whole community will be relieved from this obligation.

00:33:32--> 00:34:14

If a group of people matter established a Marcus on something that is beneficial to the Ummah to the community, and they are offering some services. And these services are faulty fire, fortify and that means they have to exist in that community in every community like Mithuna teaching, teaching their own ama they said in every community in every village, in every city, we have to have some people who who are fuqaha they have to dedicate their life to study the deen and then the teach other people. You go to some villages Mithuna you find you don't find the email, we don't have an email. They don't have someone to teach them the deen of Allah subhana wa Taala we have it is an obligation

00:34:14--> 00:34:43

upon them to ask someone what is the center want to learn about the deen of Allah subhanaw taala come back to this community and teach him a teach them the Sharia knowledge. These are follow the Kiva follow the Kiva is not only about the deen it could be math and medical science. As a Muslim community, we need medical doctor we need sir computer scientist. It is it? Could we afford kefir if we need it for our survival as a community.

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

So for the key fire is a broad aspect. And it's a beautiful aspect because everyone will be relieved from this obligation if if a group of people fulfill this obligation. Now what is beautiful about it, that the people who did

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

Then do it you'd be actually what you'd be happy and making dua to those who relieved them from this obligation. But what's happening nowadays in our communities,

00:35:10--> 00:35:54

people are not happy if they see you doing something, they're not happy, because you're not doing in my name. You didn't ask me you didn't consult with me, you should include my name there. And this is the source of sorts of division. He's doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, or for the sake of something else, but it is there. And it is beneficial because someone could do something for this something else, not for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala it's his problem on the day of judgment, but Muslim other Muslims could benefit from it. I'm not saying we should have the wrong intention, we should always strive for the right intention. But this there will be a case when Allah subhanho

00:35:54--> 00:36:30

wa Taala would give support of a support to his Deen through someone who is not pious, who is fairly, he is someone who is sinful, but he would do something for whatever reason. And then Allah Subhana Allah, Allah would allow other people to benefit from his, you know, achievement or whatever he did for the community for the Ummah, that's Allah subhanaw taala and you will finally equally hire as Allah subhanaw taala In fact, the hell if you didn't want to wait, if you have any question we have five minutes left before creation, creation sha Allah at eight o'clock. Now before we

00:36:31--> 00:36:32

before you.

00:36:34--> 00:37:02

Just something to mention before we finish in sha Allah, Allah, Allah insha. Allah asked if you have questions, we are planning to have youth activity after Friday Halaqa every night, in a different place very close to this place. We talked to them and they said it is available. It is a basketball court. And we'd like to encourage our youth to go and play basketball.

00:37:04--> 00:37:44

While we're not for the sake of basketball, we want to spend some time with our youth and attract him to the Halacha, to the dean to the massage, they come here and then they go. So we want you to invite other people, especially the young people to invite them to this halacha I know the weather conditions are not very helpful tonight. They are not hamdulillah Shiva Kamala O'Hara for coming for this halacha May Allah reward you greatly. But I will, we want to, we need your help. So we're not going to do it tonight. We will start maybe by the end of November or the beginning of December. So we will have a group of youth young people going after the Halacha they start at 830 and they finish

00:37:44--> 00:38:05

at 1032 hours playing basketball and just to encourage our youth inshallah to do some basic physical activities and to come to the Halacha to come to the Halacha first and they go with the rest of the young people who attended the Halacha to play some do some sport and physical activities type do you have any question?

00:38:12--> 00:38:15

When you start in the beginning, which

00:38:16--> 00:38:17

you can use,

00:38:18--> 00:38:22

it depends which which which branch of knowledge you're talking about.

00:38:25--> 00:38:28

Which branch of knowledge you're talking about.

00:38:31--> 00:39:14

The outside of Solomon is a good book here and if you want to study Hadith, but if you want to memorize Metheny, the Hadith for Salah Salem, maybe just to motivate yourself don't start with Riyadh Saudi him because it's a big book here might be more or less three or four and that is why God I mean, I cannot memorize this book. But if you start with the 40 Hadith of Imam unknowing, 14 is not 40 hadith is not the big number. So if you start Mirtha you say every one week, I will memorize one Hadith or two weeks I memorize one Hadith, then that will be beautiful. I think you should be you will be able to do it. Also don't forget about the book of Allah subhanaw taala we

00:39:14--> 00:39:51

have the opportunity here to memorize the book of Allah subhanaw taala because you are teachers. We have teachers who are available here every Sunday morning, every Wednesday in the evening. She had him used to come here for 10 years, maybe for 10 years. Every Sunday, masha Allah morning is coming. And we have only a small group of people who are coming every Sunday morning and everyone is there. I mean, talking about myself, I didn't I was not excited about going to chahatein Mantilla. So one of our students completing the Quran I said to myself, Yanni, I didn't complete the Quran, maybe I should go to Sheikh Hatem and study with him. So I'm going to share him with the rest of the

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

students and studying Quran with him. So you should study start with the book of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:39:57--> 00:39:59

And also, if you want to study Hadith

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

To start with and Arbaeen and then when we don't start with Riyadh the Saudi Hain or say Buhari to these are big books

00:40:09--> 00:40:16

for Bahrain and then when we when you study their meanings, and then you move to another book to a different level and so on.

00:40:18--> 00:40:26

If you are if you want to study fake, the Obama decided is the best way to study one month start with a small book

00:40:27--> 00:40:28

in one month

00:40:29--> 00:40:39

one Madhava it's not an invitation to be narrow minded, or to follow my very blindly. But when it comes to methodology, I think it's the best way

00:40:40--> 00:41:30

with the condition that you don't follow a madhhab blindly. You say later on I'm sharing theory. I don't want to listen to any other opinion. And Maliki I don't care about the other No. But for the sake of learning make it easy for you study with one start with man one madhhab small booklets in one madhhab and then you move on yeah but you try to when you study knowledge you don't do it by yourself don't do it by yourself listen to the explanation of songs callers online if it is available. We don't have you know here systematic Halaqaat in effect because people they use always to say he used to say Oh it's you know this dry we don't want this dry subjects

00:41:31--> 00:41:58

these are these are dry subject and they will not when we keep learning these subjects people are not be they're not going to be motivated to come to the Halaqaat let's keep them you know let's keep talking about general subject here is some difficile some Hadith some flak from here and so on. But if you want to be serious about knowledge you need to do it in a different way.

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

His daily life my

00:42:03--> 00:42:04

everyday Masjid

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