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

I want to start with a story. And always when we start with stories, I can capture your attention. Hopefully, it's a beautiful food. So hopefully I can take you away a little bit from the food.

00:01:02--> 00:01:07

The one of the icons of the Hanafi school of thought

00:01:08--> 00:01:17

is all the abuse of is a very famous student of Imam Abu Hanifa. And his his student narrated the story

00:01:19--> 00:01:36

how the Abu Yusuf was an orphan. His father died as a young age, they were poor, didn't have much. So his mother decided to send him to the market to work and make some money to support himself.

00:01:37--> 00:01:47

However, all the abuse of in the market found the Halacha, the class of Imam Abu Hanifa.

00:01:48--> 00:02:01

And he used to sneak out from work, go and attend the class. The mother knows about it, go to the class, pick him up, put him back in the workplace.

00:02:03--> 00:02:15

This is day one, day two, day three, day four. Finally she came to the class and Abu Hanifa was sitting all the abuse of a young man sitting there. She looked at Abu Hanifa

00:02:16--> 00:02:29

Imam Abu Hanifa and she said, You know what? You're ruining my child. You're spoiling my child. You're taking him away from our source of income that can help him

00:02:32--> 00:03:22

Al Imam Abu Hanifa the faqeer as Imam Shafi I used to say about him Kulu Nassif, hilfi al Lunala, Abu Hanifa, every scholar of Fick is a child, if you compare him with our Hanifa. So he looked at her and says, Woman, leave him there. Let him learn. One day, he will eat. I'll falou the edge. It's kind of dessert. That's only kings and high, rich people, dignitary, eat it. She looked at him and says, what took her child moved, looked at him and says, By Allah haba Hanifa, you're getting old. And I think you're losing your mind.

00:03:24--> 00:03:26

Years later,

00:03:27--> 00:03:40

before that, Abu Hanifa decided to take him out of the market, pay him daily, what he was gaining from work, and he taught him years later,

00:03:41--> 00:03:59

I will use have become the Kali of Baghdad. The judge of Baghdad is like the Supreme Court these days. And one day, he was sitting with Haruna Rashid Ameerul Momineen, the leader of the believers,

00:04:01--> 00:04:08

and then they were eating, and they served them dessert. And guess what was the dessert?

00:04:09--> 00:04:16

I'll follow with what Abu Hanifa predicted. So he looked at it and he starts smiling.

00:04:17--> 00:04:22

So how long the Rashid looked at him, he says, Why are you smiling? It's a desert.

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

He said nothing. Yeah, Mira more meaning. It's nothing. He said, No, you need to tell me. So he told him this story. And how una Rashid says May Allah bless Abu Hanifa he looked at you with his heart. He didn't look at you with his eyes. And look what this brought up. I'll follow the Abu Yosef. Every time I come across this story. I remember a story happened to me in Jeddah where I studied Islamic study. After I moved I had to work to get to

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

Logistics reason to get permanent visa to sit to stay in the country and to study. So one day I was in labor and delivery as you some of you most of you know, I'm an obstetrician gynecologist. So they called me to for a delivery. Next day, I had fic exam. So I brought my books with me, because sometimes delivery takes long time and I may be able to study. So I left my book and it was book of book of fear along the way. And when to see the patient came back, one of my colleagues next to me looked at me and said, he picked up the book and he said, What is this? What is going to give you? How much more you will make?

00:05:49--> 00:05:58

Very common question, very common concept. We look at knowledge, how much money it will bring me.

00:05:59--> 00:06:03

And I remembered, of course the word of Allah

00:06:04--> 00:06:32

in the Quran, and most of you in sha Allah, you know, there's a lot of doulas there is a lot of supplication Allah Titus for banana Robina Atina for dunya Hasina have been allowed to Saku banaba in Daytona, and on and on and on. And if you look at almost all these da except one, there was no teaching that teaches you and me to ask for more.

00:06:34--> 00:06:35

Except one

00:06:36--> 00:07:37

in sort of Baja. And Allah said it through Rasul Allah is salatu salam, and it's a DUA, worker, Robbie Zinnia. Alma, oh, Allah, increase me in knowledge. Increase me in knowledge, teach me more. Never, ever is enough. And knowledge because that's a very common question. A lot of people ask, what is knowledge? Which one? So everybody has to go and become an Imam, and share her and memorize the Quran? What about the others? The answer in a simple word and it's not my words, scholars word is any kind of knowledge. Number one halaal is allowed by Allah subhanho wa taala. And number two, brings you closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. That's what you should pursue. If it is otherwise,

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

then you need to think about it.

00:07:39--> 00:08:22

Is this easy? Is this available? Is this something we want to do? What will make me do it? A lot of people asked me this. What made you go and study Islamic Studies? And you're already an offset Russian gynecologist? Why? Simple answer from Rasul Allah salatu salam. And this is a Hadith by Mahalia and it is all Buhari and Roswaal a salatu salam said this to each one of us, your Rasul Myra Su, and a salatu salam said the following May you read the love will be higher on you for coffee Dean

This become when I can. After I finish things, one to two difficult not available. I can do it.

00:09:26--> 00:09:56
