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

Seek most to do today inshallah, we'll be talking about the importance of seeking knowledge type. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam O Allah ashrafi mo serine Sayidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ma.

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

shallows 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 a Sherry anoush.

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 it's very significant

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

about the importance of sharing our 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 otter to look at the mountains around the sea and the the nature and

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

and so he went to the front, the seafront,

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

and he

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

hired the boat,

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

or cruiser.

00:01:37--> 00:01:41

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 and 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--> 00:02:31

Do you know anything about psychology? He said, 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 of the question. He said, Do you know anything about philosophy?

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

He said 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 I asked 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 sharing our 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 there 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 requirement to for shipping Allah subhana wa Taala that is the test of our life. We were created to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala to serve a Lost Planet Allah in this life. That is the purpose What am I up to genome is a malaria burden.

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

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

00:04:35--> 00:05:00

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 Sherry or the dean the sharing of knowledge, the fifth of the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the fifth 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

On 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.

00:05:21--> 00:05:23

What is interesting about

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

Sharia knowledge of 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 you 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 URI analyst tells you how to fulfill the requirements of this role.

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

He tells you what is haram and what is Helen, it tells you how to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala in the right way.

00:06:01--> 00:06:31

It tells you about the nature of your key indicator many people are 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 Judo, 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--> 00:07:10

And some of them are confused, because there are many answers out there. So the sharing of 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--> 00:07:53

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 Subhana Allah and the Sunnah of his messengers and allow us to sell it is only a reminder with your vendor Vicarage, and Pharaoh and many and 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 subhanaw taala said in the Quran erfaringer who live in Amman hoomin como la Vina Oh to learn Mandarin shirt. Well, lo, Tamar Luna hubiera, this ayah is in Surah tillandsia Allah. So Allah

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

subhanaw taala 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 allies acquainted with what you do with all what you do. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that he exalts the people of knowledge that believers who believed among humans, among his creation, he would exalt the degree, the status and the rank of those who believed in him believed in the last pilot, ality Dave 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 of 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 Mr. Maliki mama chef at a memorable hanifa Lima Muhammad, were students even Buhari in the Muslim term with the new measure and say Abu Dawood,

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

a life of Lusaka, the moment I was there, a chef Islam, Mauritania, mukai him those and there are many scholars who passed away they have written their books in a moment never week, and they have left a legacy behind whenever they are mentioned in a measureless in halaqa, and whatever. People would say, Rahim Allah, may Allah have mercy on him.

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

And this is something that is happening till the Day of Judgment in every hotel, and think how many hotels are delivered in the Muslim world? In every halaqa and think about how many holocausts are being done organizing the Muslim word. Whenever a Hannukah is done, or whatever the speaker usually would say, Rahim Allah, may Allah have mercy on him? The speaker would invoke Allah has mercy and blessings upon that scholar, amen. Malik doesn't know that we are mentioning him here, Rahim Allah remember Mohammed rahima. Who loves me. I don't know that we are talking about them. But we

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

These dedicated their time and their life for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala decompensated them and Allah Subhana Allah rewarded them with this blessing. People are asking last panel to Allah to show his mercy upon them, I said till the Day of Judgment, till the Day of Judgment, the only hundreds of years in America remember Sheriff either lived in the early days of Islam in the second and the Sahaba of the allow, I know, so have our special people but we say don't be alone And may Allah be pleased with them, because of the honor of you know, living with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:10:40--> 00:10:55

even those who are not scholars among them, whenever we mentioned them, we say about the Allah And may Allah be pleased with him, because Allah subhana wa Taala told us in the Quran, that he is pleased with the Sahaba the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

on the Day of Judgment, the ranks will be higher, because the rewards in this dunya and in the hereafter are multiplied. Whenever the teaching Aya, whenever the teacher Hadith, whenever the teachers sharing a 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 also lies on the law it was Selim said, in a hadith an authentic hadith

00:11:31--> 00:12:22

collected by Lima Muslim he said in this hadith manda illa houden fella who can enter hoomin allegedly Miss Lou Riemann tabea liuqiu very common ozora him Shia, this is inside 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 knowledge 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 for except knowledge. Vocal rub designare

00:12:22--> 00:13:12

inma and this is in sauropod Soraka in Surah, Chapter 21 Cora busied near in my essay My Lord, increase me in knowledge, Allah Subhana Allah is talking to his messenger. He didn't say what Cora busied me mela on my crease mean wealth. Walker a busy ninja was shut off and all increase mean honor. Even taqwa which is something any very virtuous something that is required through the step where we will enter into a please our last panel and go to Jenna, but the last panel what I 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 in MIF Shama, mini Riba de Luna

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

Ma, 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 Yahoo and this is the only thing that Allah Subhana 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 any many actions. Many actions will be based through knowledge will be based on the the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the commands of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We cannot achieve the status of taqwa without knowledge. You cannot have you cannot be a machete, 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 when you reach this level

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

of taqwa and then you deserve the reward of Allah subhanho wa Taala you deserve the agenda of horrible anime

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

in the sooner and the sooner 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 anywhere it was it was not very formal, like he would not come call people for a halaqa at seven o'clock, and then he would deliver a speech. He would be walking with someone and then he will tell him howdy and teach him about story. He would be eating having lunch

00:15:00--> 00:15:49

with someone else, and He will teach him about the Tafseer of an IRA It was very informal but it was very powerful his ways some allow him 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 some of the law and he was selling men Sella, Qatari Can you ever tell he is man sal Allahu Allahu polyphony. lagenda Oh Celica v y ahora silica be historic an illusion. Whoever embarks on the path of knowledge or whoever embarked on the path of seeking 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 glad tiding given to anyone who

00:15:49--> 00:15:52

is seeking knowledge who is involved in this business of

00:15:53--> 00:16:37

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 30 learn the ayah the meaning of the ayat listen to some lectures. And you you know you spend some time for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah then Allah Subhana Allah will make your way to Jenna easy, he will make it easy for you. And this is a beautiful and glad tidings given to those who are seeking knowledge Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to as I said to encourage his companions in different ways. One time he said, la has said that he left with no tiene

00:16:37--> 00:16:52

la hacer de he left with nothing at a low man far away and people feasterville what are you doing at a lower element for who you are and Yakumo be where you are 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 invite

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 spend this wealth in the for the sake of Allah Subhana Allah in the right way.

00:17:21--> 00:17:51

And a person whom Allah Subhana Allah has given knowledge has granted knowledge by which he judges and which he teaches. So that has a left with methane he said only these two people should be invited. He use the word has it has it usually has a very negative meaning very negative connotation. Because hazard the definition of hazard is to wish that the name

00:17:52--> 00:17:58

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 massage alum he did not mean this. You know this has said 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 and what Allah is sponsoring orphans and building massages and spending in the willfulness parameter Allah, then you wish that you have the same thing,

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

but also lies a low it was seldom used to congratulate his companions whenever the correctly answer a question. Like one time it's a hit Muslim, a Muslim collected a hadith that he asked to buy even a car

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

and he's his kunia was able to move via

00:18:43--> 00:19:28

May Allah May Allah move it from Quran he said, What is the greatest idea in the book of philosophy? Hello, dad. And I will move very tightly to him. I think he gave him the right answer. So he currently patted him on his chest and he said, a failure in a bad mood, a coconut elation With this knowledge you have among them. So he is to encourage them and congratulate them or congratulate them whatever the answer be correctly, answer a question or make the right judgment. He used to supplicate Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, make dua to Allah subhanaw taala for them to bless his companions with the COVID Dina COVID Dina is not effective that we find in the books of faith is the

00:19:28--> 00:19:47

right understanding of the deen have to live my best for the low and who said one time that Rasulullah saw Selim the Prophet of Allah embraced me and he said Allahumma fapy who have a deep one limb who will who Allah grant him the right understanding of the deen

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

and hear the right understanding and Phil COVID Dean is very significantly awkward, because many people seek knowledge, but they don't seek knowledge in the right way.

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

We might be actually misguided

00:20:03--> 00:20:07

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

00:20:09--> 00:20:18

They might become arrogant they might have a wrong understanding of the deen. So so the right understanding of the deen is a Nima from Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is the duality

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

made

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

for even our best of the best.

00:20:24--> 00:20:54

He says Aloma for failover Dino and limb hotel we rally motor we teach him the right understanding of the book, bless him with a with a 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 I mean, at best, most of the mufa serien who narrated the tavsiye the meaning of the ayat in the if you go to tafsir tabari tafsir of McAfee most of them are the students.

00:20:55--> 00:21:36

an ambassador of the ohana This is the Baraka of this new added to our financial lives on the low end it was silly and he used to make dua for anyone who heard his sayings and conveyed them as he heard them not alone and send me I'm a karate for a decade. Samia, is it may Allah brighten the face of someone who heard my saying retains it and then conveys it as he heard it. For me in our army 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 head either follow suit.

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

But he's not a fucky. But what he what was his job is to relate it to to convey the Hadees as he heard it the way he heard it, he doesn't add anything. He doesn't,

00:21:50--> 00:22:34

you know, omit anything from the header he does not delete anything from the header. But the person who would hear the heading 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 ahaadeeth venerated 1000s of Hadith but we don't consider them fuqaha they are not fuqaha but there are some other Sahaba did not enter at or near as much, but they are fuqaha Allah Allah has blessed them with their understanding of the dean like my fellow. Normally when you compare the durations of Abdullah of neuroma or the narrations of hapa himself who is a halifa and a great mistake abubaker he was a

00:22:34--> 00:23:05

mistake. When you compare the numbers of narrations that they have narrated with the narrations that Abu hurayrah narrated, there is a big difference burera memorize more than 5000 Hadith, but they are more they are they are they are they are more knowledgeable than him when it comes to fish and detecting cherry 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 oma. Yeah, and someone could be very

00:23:07--> 00:23:29

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

00:23:30--> 00:23:34

many beautiful matters from from these ahaadeeth

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

there is beautiful Hadees that Rasulullah saw Selim has mentioned and it is found in soon and Timothy and some other books.

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

And this hadith

00:23:48--> 00:24:31

was narrated in different generations, many narrations and the Muslim who the majority of the roadmap they said it is hard if sorry, like shuffle Alberni and some other scholars, they said it is hard to say they are the majority. Some of them they said it is naive, like he meant materially that he believes himself on Earth at the Hadith 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 Hadees but they had it has a very interesting story. So in this hadith Mr. metonymy these narrating from some people there is a chain of narration and until he comes to anti semitic affair, he said Kanaka

00:24:31--> 00:24:59

de Mirage luminal Medina, te Allah avatar, the avatar that is 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. There There are the allow, I knew was one of the Sahaba so cut the Mirage alone A man came. He said the man came to visit Abu Dhabi, the visitor Buddha when he was in the mosque in Damascus.

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

So he said I was there to him academica 11

00:25:05--> 00:25:11

he said, what brings you my nephew? Yep. Now he it was, it was a kind of,

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

you know, it's a it's a way of showing respect to the person when you call him, you should attack him 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 they it was their way to address each other. So he said my academica What brings you Oh, my nephew, he replied, howdy that has reached me which you have narrated from the Messenger of Allah.

00:25:43--> 00:26:33

So he said howdy from Bella honey and Nikita Hadith, Juan rasulillah ser para 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? Hello, Geeta MLG, Telly 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 Celica pathania batavi Hillman silicon lobi personal agenda. This first part is authentic, there is no doubt about it. It was collected in in Sahih Muslim and it was I also narrated in many other authentic hadith. So there is no problem with this parchment Celica. parihaka yupptv be here illman.

00:26:33--> 00:26:53

And we mentioned this Hadeeth previously, he said Mozilla caparica yupptv here in Van Celica lobi personal agenda, 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 Malacca Allah tala juniata riddle Nepali Berlin, and this is a great honor. He said the angels lower their wings in approval for the one seeking knowledge

00:27:12--> 00:27:32

and hear their own amount. Of course, the explain this hadith. And they said they show their approval by lowering their wings. They show their humbleness to the secrets of knowledge. It's a sign of protection because they have big, you know, they're there. They have big wings. And they when they lose

00:27:33--> 00:27:39

their wings, it's a sign of protection like they are protecting the people of knowledge that people who are seeking knowledge.

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

And he said we're in the last few months semi working woman fell out of hotel he

00:27:49--> 00:28:01

had to return to FEMA. He said forgiveness indeed forgiveness he sought this aboard there narrating from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he did forgiveness he sought for every for the people who

00:28:02--> 00:28:39

buy everything in the heavens and everything in the earth, including fish in the water. Even fish in the water are making this the father asking Allah subhanaw taala to forgive those who are involved in knowledge and seeking knowledge. He says well first rule anime alharbi decaffeination kamari Allah says Ed kawaki 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 the moon? What is the excellence of the moon

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

now

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

reflects light. So here I am their image cheriya it's like a light and it is a light. When you have the theory and knowledge, then you have this slide. You can use it in your life. 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 a darkness in the darkness and you have some light with you. That is the example of sherry and knowledge.

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

And he said we're in the Lula waterbottle MBA another aspect of their honor. He said in the route Mr. waterfix MBA thesis scholars are the heroes of the prophets. Were in alula were in the MBA. Let me worry through Dina and Willa Dr. Hammond and we know yes that the prophets did not leave inheritance behind them that was that's why Abu Bakar of the allow I know he did not want to give the the land that Rasulullah Salim left behind to Fatima and his family members because he heard the messenger

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

Saying, even though he loves the family of the Prophet, he loves them. But he said this is worthless Allah Selim said, and I 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--> 00:30:45

He believed that Abubakar, actually he was against the family of the Prophet, but aboubaker 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 subhanho wa Taala animate it this way, what is their inheritance is knowledge in the waterfall in in the waterfall, and this is what Rasulullah saw, Selim said, the only legacy is this knowledge from an aha that

00:30:46--> 00:31:03

we have in warfare, and whoever takes from his from from it, then he has taken great chair, he has taken great care and this is a great honor to be the he of the prophets and messengers because they are the best of Allah's creation on this earth.

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

So if these ideas do not encourage us

00:31:07--> 00:31:11

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 is the project of our life seeking knowledge.

00:31:21--> 00:31:28

Nowadays, effort is usually is being reduced to a kind of entertainment.

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

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.

00:31:42--> 00:32:23

I'm not talking about other people talking about myself and everyone, we were not really serious about, you know, seeking, sharing our 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 within mithila for them Keifa for example, the

00:32:23--> 00:32:24

collective

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

obligation

00:32:28--> 00:33:14

for the key fire, what is beautiful about one of the key fire one, for the key fire if it is not for the different from for the end, for the iron is individual personal obligation, everyone has to do it by himself like solid are giving zakat. No one prayer can pay on your behalf, nor can give Zakat on your behalf if you have money you are able to give it on fasting. But firstly Keifa is a group of people do it then the rest of the Ummah will be relieved, like method of praying offering salata janaza on someone who has passed away, if someone passes away in the City of Calgary, and no one offered Salatu jenessa on him. Then the whole community of Calgary Muslim community will be sinful.

00:33:15--> 00:33:31

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

00:33:32--> 00:34:13

If a group of people matter established a Marcus or something that is beneficial to the Ummah to the community, and they are offering some services. And these services are full of key fire for the fire 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 are fuqaha they have to dedicate their life to study the deen and then they teach other people you go to some villages within you find you don't find the email you don't have an email so they don't have someone to teach them the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala we have it is an

00:34:13--> 00:34:35

obligation upon them to ask someone or to send someone to learn about dental floss pentatonic come back to this community and teach him a teach them the Sherry and knowledge These are furutech effects for the giveaway is not only about the DNA, it could be mathematical science. As a Muslim community, we need medical doctor we need

00:34:36--> 00:34:43

computer scientist it is it could be a fourth Keifa if we need it for our survival as a community.

00:34:44--> 00:35:00

So for wiki 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 do

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

Do what you'd be actually watch, you'd be happy and making do it those who relieve them from this obligation. But what's happening nowadays in our communities,

00:35:10--> 00:35:53

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 here. And this is the source of source 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

00:35:53--> 00:36:30

subhanho wa Taala would give support or support to his Deen through someone who is not pious, who is fair, he is someone who is sinful, but he would do something for whatever reason. And then Allah subhana wa Taala would allow other people to benefit from his, you know, achievement or whatever he did for the community or for the oma is Allah subhanaw taala and you will finally Cooley hair salons pantalla for the Hanafi Deen when we if you have any question we have five minutes left before pressure, pressure insha Allah at eight o'clock. Now before we

And then he said, Oh my god, I mean, I cannot memorize this book. Maybe you start with the 40 hadith of Lima nawawi 40 is not 40 haddie says it's not a big number. So if you start with a you say every one week, I will memorize what have you thought 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 the book bought the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala we have the

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

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

in one method,

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

one method, but 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
