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

Miss mill, you love your

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

first line worker to smilla hamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah while he was off sahbihi woman who Allah does not allow heyland for joining us and hamdulillah Grameen Allah Subhana Allah gave us life gave us an opportunity to join again and another Tuesday hello and this one is going to be every holiday special but this one is going to be a little bit more special inshallah more special because of that subject more special because of the

00:00:40--> 00:01:27

esteemed and honorable guests handler we have our local scholars then we have also scholar joining us from Michigan hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen are also highly sought or sit on said in a statement to say 90 which I'm going to comment on it later on in the in when I come to speak, but just the title in case someone is wondering if Allah guided through you one person was olara, Swati salatu salam said to say 90 If Allah guided through you, meaning guide to Allah through you, one person way better, better for you than the whole herd of red camels. And I was just before coming and looking at exactly how much a red camel worth and the camel itself worth more than 55,000 the ordinary so

00:01:27--> 00:02:19

imagine the red which is more scarce and rare. And then a whole group of 100 Lego blocks I mean, what we are trying to do today by His grace is to bring to everybody who is listening to us the beauty of learning the subjects and the knowledge of this Deen of Allah pantalla. But more importantly is I want to focus specifically on on why our beautiful sisters young and old need to learn and I opted to invite scholars men to talk about this from their own perspective. And I will add at the end also because this is not only involving one gender or the other gender, it's basically involving the whole family. So I'm going to start with our no one but our Mufti of

00:02:19--> 00:03:04

Theosophy. And if you allow me I will do some introduction and the introduction will not give him his due right. And I know him on a personal level and I know him as an Imam. I know as a Mufti, if anything, I will say before I read his bio, I say I look up to his patients, being an Imam is I will say one of the most difficult job and always smiling Mashallah Tabata cola and May Allah give you more and Allah test him and Allah always the people who love He tests more and he tested him in hamdulillah. But the best gift Allah gave more Theosophy and actually gave Sheikh Hamza engaged Mufti, Wahid Alhamdulillah gave me later on is that all the speakers today carry the book of Allah

00:03:04--> 00:03:47

in their hearts, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen and that's a huge Nima and May Allah give it to everybody. So Matthew also actually is local. He was born and raised in St. Louis. Then at a young age, he memorized the Quran. And then at the after he memorized the Quran, he actually memorized the Quran in Chicago. And then after he memorized the Quran, he actually finished editing course, and most of Theosophy was fortunate to be one of the amongst the final students of Shea, Alhaji Maulana Muhammad nine. Then upon his graduation in 2007, he actually finished Iftar in South Africa, and then he actually moved also to Egypt to learn more Arabic and deewan in a study on the local shoe,

00:03:47--> 00:03:54

awful has his heart. Then he came back to first not to St. Louis, actually, he came back to Virginia. Am I right? Naughty?

00:03:56--> 00:04:10

Yes, exactly. And then I'm sure the love of st closer brought him back and 100 Lega Oh, Blimey, we are fortunate to have him as our email for the last eight years yum of July 2012. Correct. So

00:04:12--> 00:04:34

your year, last shot lots of artikelen May Allah increase it more. So I will not speak any more. I will leave it to our Mufti to go ahead and enlighten us all and teach us myself number one, everybody about why should we learn your Mufti? And why woman specifically needs to learn when I talk about learn. I talk about Islamic knowledge today.

00:04:37--> 00:04:46

Bismillah R Rahman Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah is anyone early he was talking about the smilla Rahmanir Rahim.

00:04:48--> 00:04:55

My dear respected sisters and brothers in Islam. Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

First of all, I would like to say the record level statement to

00:05:00--> 00:05:28

Dr. hypur for inviting me and inviting RSC esteemed scholars who I'm with today, for this beautiful program. I'm actually happy I'm going first as they always say the best you say for last. So the scholars that I'm with, with a check on Ebola or like or hate bra herself, they're much better than me Mashallah, so you'll receive the best for last. So I'm glad I'm going first of all, kondalilla. But, you know, moving forward.

00:05:29--> 00:06:09

This is SubhanAllah. It's such an excellent and such a beautiful topic to discuss. And, first of all, before we even get into the education of women, especially how women can really affect the household, just the title of this topic, if Allah subhanaw taala guides one person through you and your wife already mentioned, the hobbies I know she has, we're going to go more into the Hadoop itself. I'm not going to speak about it. But it's such a beautiful title. And it shows how honorable it is to be a person who is able to guide another person through this religion and to the scene of Islam. So we have such short time each person speaking but why is this so important? You know,

00:06:09--> 00:06:52

normally, we are always speaking about the greatness of males, scholars and the legacies that they left behind. But some Allah when we look at the full Muslim, Allahu ala, Selim, from the time onwards, there were plenty of great women who were amongst the greatest of scholars and those who were learned, who also impacted their own households and Subhan. Allah, we always talk about Islam and how when Islam came at the time of januvia, at a time when women were treated so horribly, in society, Islam is a dream that gave our women or whether there are mothers, or whether there are sisters, or wives or daughters, they give them such a great honor in their status. And they all play

00:06:52--> 00:07:13

such important roles in our lives. And I'm here speaking, as a man, I'm here speaking as a son, as a husband, as a brother and as a father, right? So I'm speaking with all of the roles that I play in my life has any man, you know, we see the sisters in our community, they have been given such special status. And it's not just me saying that it's reasonable

00:07:14--> 00:07:52

to support Allah Subhana Allah who speaks about the greatness of women in society. Personally speaking from my side, you know, I can, I can, first of all say before I get into it, my own mother in the Midwest want to bless her. She played such an important role for me growing up as, as did my father, of course, but my mother's Pinilla, she was always home with us, she was sacrificing her time for us, he was teaching us making sure we do our work, a contributor for our making sure we learn our salon. And, you know, without my mother, and without her blue eyes, and without first sacrifices and without further efforts, and the dwis that she made in the way that she also pushed

00:07:52--> 00:08:30

me and encouraged me to learn. If I don't feel I would be here in the position that I am today serving as a new mom without the laws and without the efforts of my mother and my wife is well in my own household. She plays such a critical role in the education of our our own children within the house, teaching them for on and setting an example for them on a daily basis, giving them their Serbia and giving them giving them their Islamic upbringing. So this was an example of the mothers that that that the mothers had set in the past and they also used to train their children from an early age to learn to adhere to the sooner traditional Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Before getting into

00:08:30--> 00:08:49

that we look at the example just look at the school must for the longest time this was the Messenger of Allah. Do you think that the Messenger of Allah Himself was the chosen one by Allah subhana wa Tada. He was chosen as the final messenger, he was chosen as the one and when he came when the visa the largest payment was given, he was given this mission when he was given

00:08:50--> 00:09:24

the revolution in writing, he wrote and he became the Prophet of Allah. So Allah already he was selling a lot. It wasn't as if he acted alone, and he did everything himself. But as soon as he received the who, what what happened? He was the encouragement and the advice, the cutting job or the loss of his own beloved wife, Omaha Omu, right. She was the one who still kind of love was consulted by Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam, you know, look at the role that she had in his life as a caretaker and as a mentor herself, one who supported the mission of this little mark on this employee, not only through her finance, but through her

00:09:25--> 00:09:44

through her spirituality and through her younger conviction of the deen and without her encouragement to me for the longest time, it would have been even much more difficult for him to fulfill his mission and his class. So this was the role that that was played by Athena. Another example. Look at at the time of,

00:09:45--> 00:10:00

of the Treaty of who they be, or this was a time when the Muslims were were of course on their way to mcdot to perform the oma oppose their image and they were struck just outside of MK that Edward adea. And we know that they were not able to enter a Macau they were not able to enter

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

They're knocked out because the operation had stopped them. And even after they had gone through the terms of this treaty and it was so one sided it looked like it was completely in heavily in favor of the operation. But maybe some a lot of them had farsightedness and he had forbearance, and he signed this treaty anyway. And even after the agreement appeared to be one sided in favoring the most of the food when the Muslims themselves so disappointment in their faces, and how it was so difficult for them to do so don't worry for them at this time, he ordered his companions to sacrifice their animals and to shave their heads to indicate coming out of the state of the prom. But what happened

00:10:36--> 00:11:10

was according to the Hadith in the narration, it says that no single person from among them stood up and carried out this particular command. So in the peace of the Lord, he said, um, you know, after he mentioned and normally these were the companions that we followed, the commander will be provided immediately, but there were so dejected and he was so discouraged after such a long journey, and wanting to go into Macbeth, at least one of them saw the dejection in their faces, what did you do, he went with his wife who was traveling with him on this journey with my son on the altar and he goes to the temple to the ceremony says that I'm giving this command to my to my people to the

00:11:10--> 00:11:46

companions, and none of them are following this command. So what did only for my say with her advice, he says, got a suit of mine If you will go out and do that under a word you're not commend them to do for better yourself, do it yourself, sacrifice yourself either ahead, and they will follow your command. And then we did this they follow this advice and this is exactly what happened. They followed the command after the sort of article and by his example so this will be advice of in the Santa Maria de la cara on how he impacted the reseller Manuel herself. Subhan Allah. When we look at shipping, we look at jurisprudence. There are some rulings which are also accepted by the

00:11:46--> 00:11:53

EMA based on a single narration, I think female companions were to give one example, he looked at the sister of a boost agent

00:11:54--> 00:12:33

who's been thematic in Michigan. And there was an incident at the time of automatically upon when he was calling when a particular woman whose husband passed away and he left nothing behind, including a dwelling. So the ruling regarding her ADA and where she would spend the ADA. She was she was knowledgeable about this particular ruling. So automatically our current went to her sought her advice. And he followed this advice because of the knowledge that she was known for. When we further Viola one had to use for hikma in the time of 100, maybe some unlawful racism. When the judge were unsure. There were some who are unsure too fast or not unknown, the autopark. So she knew that this

00:12:33--> 00:13:09

command which is mentioned in the Heidi is it only applied to those who are gone programs. So what did she do, she used her hikma over here, and she presented a couple of milks and maybe some unlawful it was stolen front of everyone. So this was from drank this and therefore it was an indication that he was not fasting. So those who were fasting at the time, they knew that it was not upon us to pass. So they broke their pass this was the hedmark mccardel or the Allahu taala. By going back to how mothers were teachers and mentors and supporters of their children, when includes the learning the need to look at an example or robear it may be more with are they often unhappy. He

00:13:09--> 00:13:16

was one who is known for also narrating a very detailed Heidi on booboo. And this was a study that many people kaha

00:13:17--> 00:13:55

took into account in their rulings. But besides that there's an incident that mentions that maybe some Omar who it who was silom. And the whole point of this is to show how they used to teach their children. And this will allow for the sort of the senses messenger on the morning of the day of our surah to the houses of the unsavoury saying that whoever started the day not fasting, you should complete the day not fasting, and whoever started the day fasting, then we should pass when she says after that we used to pass that day and we also used to make our children pass that day. So much so that we used to make wooden toys we used to make toys out of wool for our children, so that when any

00:13:55--> 00:14:31

of them cried for food, you would basically give them the toy so that they will be entertained with these new toys that they have in hand. So they will be busy with them until the time of weekend class occurs upon Allah. So we know that plastic on the day of Ashura is not compulsory. But however, the believers who are so strong in their faith, they were keen to encourage their children to even fast and those days where it was not compulsory, so that your children are able to grow in piety so that they are able to follow the example of abuse of authority. So look at the extent of effort that they went through in order to teach their children the commands of the human. This was

00:14:31--> 00:14:46

the result of our mothers, many of the great moons and luminaries of the past we know from Islamic history, their mothers had great impact upon them and just mentioned one of them quickly, just very briefly, one of the great luminaries of their class, their name that we all know are remember how do

00:14:47--> 00:15:00

we know who's sucking and we know how how great this book is in Islam and how great his collection of ideas is, you know, many of the scholars mentioned that active before on itself that the next book which is most authentic, when they

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

comes to taking the ruling is Sahih al Bukhari. So. Remember Harare when he talks about his development into a renowned scholar and Mohammed is heavily indebted towards his mother. Just a short explanation. We know that after his birth his father passed away and it was up to his mother to raise his family, three's the family. Now during the infancy we know that mumble hot rodding had weak eyesight and it manifested into a full blown blindness to Subhan Allah He was so desperate for her son who she loved so much and so dearly. His mother was so pious and she made excessive blackall Allah subhanho wa Taala crying day and night sincerely, begging Allah subhana wa tada to restore the

00:15:42--> 00:16:18

eyesight of her son. And Subhanallah Son Son mentioned that this period of glory lasted for several years either. And one night, remember how his mother, she received the glad tidings of Abraham. That was to them who she saw in her dream, who said that Allah subhanho wa Taala has restored the sight of your son, and because of Christians here do us so the eyesight was not even restored to a degree but rather to a full capacity at full strength. So it is reported that normal How do you look at it we know how he would write books without a candle. But only from the light of the moon. That's how strong his eyesight was that he was able to see even

00:16:19--> 00:16:56

in just like the moon eating him in the dark, this is the power of the dwarf Allah subhanho wa Taala. It was the mumble Hardy's mother who had to memorize before and after his memorization of the Quran at such a young age and his mother had been sitting the gatherings of a Heidi, remember how to put it himself grew to love the science of it. And Allah, you know, we know who he became from Sofitel hotel, it his mother was the one who, after his father passed away in Philistine area, he brought him back to muster. And she pushed him there, even though he was a poor person who sacrificed everything into that he would gain the knowledge of being in the, in the, in the company

00:16:56--> 00:17:29

of the great scholars, you know, I'm not going to be humble was also raised by a single mother, Mr. Merrick was also pushed by his mother to learn and became one of the greatest scholars in the history of slavery, every moment of it, and the story of his mother as well. These were all great mothers who push their children to become such great scholars and because of their daughters, and because of their knowledge, this is who they became. So I wanted to mention to my fellow brothers out there, whether you are the brothers who are watching, or the sisters who are watching who of course, have who are married with husbands, or who have sons or brothers or whatever it may be

00:17:29--> 00:18:07

Colette fathers. It is our duty as meal as meals within the family, in the family in the household to support our women cope side by side when it comes to Islamic education. So they can continue following in the footsteps of these amazing models. We look at the examples in the past once again Subhan Allah, just look at the example see the number of senior Rahmatullah he thought all of this idea that he had built for his daughter. So it started from the vertical matusalem operation and seeking his family then, you know, all the females who the blue scholars Subhan Allah Deepak others, the male, the males, who learned they also taught their daughters and this is how their daughters

00:18:07--> 00:18:44

became such great luminaries as well. They talk they talk to their children in the next generation in America. He taught his daughter entire most of the meantime, what's the update, later on, remember money for me humble and others, they also attended to the education of their children as well as every other. One of the great scholars he says, when asked to be offered for law, he would call his two daughters as well as the daughters of his brother to teach them the Quran and people knowledge so once these daughters learn knowledge, at the hands of their fathers in the hands of their uncles into the hands of others, in supine, Allah D would become who they are, and then they

00:18:44--> 00:19:17

would teach the knowledge to others as well. So I wanted to say to my dear sisters in Islam Subhanallah You know, when it comes to the knowledge of demon, the knowledge of Islam, first of all, we know that have you done any sort of audition in the festival, anybody within Allah to the Muslim now, this hadith that says that learning knowledge is a necessity upon each and every person, it doesn't mean that for every single person, whether they're male or female, it's necessary to become a scholar of being an item of theme, or a way you're looking at, or anything like that, no, but rather, everyone has to have at least the basic types of knowledge of Salah will do you know how to

00:19:17--> 00:19:29

fast things like that, we all need to know those things. But when it comes to other aspects of knowledge, this is for both males and for females as well. And we are so fortunate in our community Subhan Allah to have a tournament instituted to have such great

00:19:31--> 00:19:42

options that are out there for our sisters as well, so they can learn in a comfortable environment. And, you know, taking all of these these institutions and these opportunities that we have into account.

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

You know, so Pamela, take advantage of the counterparts that are there on Tuesdays take advantage of the programs that they have to offer, whether it's an institute or any other Institute, it doesn't matter. There's so many great options that are out there to learn. And this is the power of technology and the blessing of technology that we have that we can use every day.

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

disposal, especially in a time of a pandemic, you know, we can really use this to our benefit. So, you know, learning all of these.

00:20:08--> 00:20:42

or using all of these types of benefits and learning from these great scholars in Sharla, you can play a great role within the household of your of your own, for your own children and for your own family members and Deacon look up to you in sha Allah, as the heartbeat says, If even one person is guided for you, and imagine if it's your own family member, when you pass away and you depart from this world and you leave a child who is pious was always praying for you was getting stuck on your behalf who is doing excellent for you. This is one of the great things that you can leave behind and that starts with a person with a mother or with a family member who is mindful of their Deen and

00:20:42--> 00:21:17

teaching their families to this extent so I think I've gone way over my time and my apologies for that. But I just wanted to see because like located is like a level of pain and once again to to see her hyper units and as well as the gender institution, it was one of the noblest agenda Institute's and all of our sisters and our our you know whether there are mothers or wives or daughters or sisters male is going to bless each and every one of you and I'd really like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the roles that you play in our lives. It's something that we really we truly appreciate. It is like level headedness that I'm working on right

00:21:19--> 00:21:57

now and if it was not for the time, I would have asked you please don't stop. Does that Allah May Allah reward you and absolutely May Allah reward your mother. What a woman as I know her personally, it gives me great pleasure to introduce our next guest. And our next guest join us from Detroit. It's Shere Khan Mufti Abdullah Wahid and he comes from a family of scholars. Mashallah tabarrok Allah I had the pleasure in November to meet your younger brother. And the first question I asked you probably don't know this shehab Dhamma I'd love to meet your mother.

00:21:58--> 00:22:40

That's exactly what I said. I was like, I need to learn from the mother who Allah subhanho wa Taala through her guided five not one. And so please give her my my Salam in my regard and May Allah give her more and more and make your call attend la Yoram biani and Mufti Sheikh Abdullah join us from nefta Institute. Many of our viewers are familiar and if you are not I absolutely recommend how you go and check it beautiful websites, beautiful programs, beautiful speakers, May Allah give them more, he actually also memorize the Quran at a young age Mashallah about a koala and I was told that he 13 tomato Cola, and then he went to Canada, where he finished his Islamic studies for seven

00:22:40--> 00:22:55

years. And then he actually his main, if you want to call it a specialties in the Tafseer of the Quran, and then he founded he's actually the gene of miftah Institute's and his other four brothers are also on the faculty and with

00:22:57--> 00:23:32

sincere gratitude hasakah for accepting to join us and I will give you and join us and what you want to teach me before anyone is why should a woman learn if I want to say this discipline one higher? Baraka Luffy dakolo him? Dr. heifer, she her wildomar Allah subhanaw taala bless you in your efforts that you're doing for the oma tanzaku Timothy Asif who spoke earlier and two other speakers will be speaking after me, said Mr. Mohammed Allah He will Baraka Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen.

00:23:33--> 00:23:43

Well, after talking alternate removewat heading one that are the one a lot of body mean was Salatu was Salam ala now Mahatma in the beginning, while earlier he was so happy as mengelberg

00:23:44--> 00:23:47

brothers and sisters Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:23:49--> 00:23:58

It's my honor to be here tonight with you virtually speaking to all the brothers and sisters, especially to the students agenda Institute and their faculty and their community.

00:23:59--> 00:24:04

This is a very good question. Why is it important for sisters mothers

00:24:06--> 00:24:51

to be well and well versed and the sciences of Islam and the Quran? know, first of all, the there should never be a gender separation between men and women in education. I mean, Islam has never addressed this in a way that women are secondary, and men are primary in this form of education. And this is the reason why we know this is that Islam never gave a backstage to the sisters, or to the education of sisters. It was just a discussion of culture that has morphed into a way that men are given priority for some odd reason when it comes to education. But in reality, if there was anything that we should have focused on and we should continue focusing on educating ourselves and people who

00:24:51--> 00:25:00

are going to be the first institution, for a child that's born into this world is a mother. Now Sheila was mentioning my mother briefly

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

And honestly, she is not a half of the children. And she is not a scholar by the academic sense. She is a physician, she's a doctor. And she was able to encourage her five sons to become halfhill. And then study Shetty for seven, eight years, plus post grad to become 50s. And most some of my brothers and then of course, some of them have gone in pursuit, there's some other academic sciences. And this comes from not necessarily saying that my mom's urbik is better than mine, or my urbik is better than hers. But brothers and sisters, and my honorable, you know, respect the sisters, is that when when a mother has a sense of responsibility of education, and knows the Quran and is passionate

00:25:46--> 00:26:29

about the deen, you will see that reflection, not just on a child, but you will see that in the husband, you will see that in a woman's brother or brother, you'll see that in her brother in a family, it affects it has a long term effect. And these were women who at the time of the process of asylum in the time that the Sahaba and the young generation that came up to them, they were all connected to the Quran. And that is the primary understanding that every sister in St. Louis, every sister that's listening online, what is our relationship with the Quran? How close are we attached to the Quran? And how much do we read the Quran? How many people have actually, you know, improve

00:26:29--> 00:27:10

the recitation? When I'm saying this, you are not just becoming a better reciter you're actually transferring to become a better Muslim. And that was the attitude and the mindset of the women at the time. You imagine, can you imagine men and it still happens today, you know, as a, as an, you know, avid study or of the Seattle I love to see it all. And you know, when it comes to the syrup, and some of the region and nissa, some of the Fatima's in the zany, nubs, and the different, you know, fingers and the cereal, I want to discuss and sometimes I can find their names, and sometimes it's just, it's blurry, I asked my mother, my mom is so well read in history and seal that as as,

00:27:10--> 00:27:50

as, as a non shell, by record, she has so much access so much read information, always books piled up on her right and left by her bed, always, you know, in the mood of reading, and I'm, and I love it now because I've become such a Syrah addict, that now we can ask, I can have discussions for hours with her. And then she'll bring up this name of this sister and this, and she sees it from a woman's perspective. And you know, and I found it to be very interesting that these are women who gave their life and because this was a priority, they also embedded this into the children. In this culture. We have parents who, who have the syndrome, where they haven't lived the lifestyle, where

00:27:50--> 00:28:36

they wanted to the American dream, and they enforce it on your children. I feel like my mom missed the opportunity of becoming a half of law allamuchy her and she had to go to medical school. She wanted to live her fantasy. Even better. She made all of her children's scholars what we do, because my mom was conservative, and my father was conservative. He and he didn't allow me to play soccer. My daughter has to be part of the soccer club. My son has to be part of, you know, gymnastics, and then we start living our lives through our children. But if a mother was mindful, and a father was cognitive of this, we wouldn't live our children. Our children should not be instruments. So we've

00:28:36--> 00:29:20

can fantasize our joys of this world. We want to be people who extremely make the best of our children's after and ultimately that's, I mean in a selfish way. That is the best way to go to Jenna is to have your children and yourself educated mecca of herbalism tuna fish a in in Lhasa Aloo. I saw the Alona every time the prom companions had any conflict of differences, they would ask I shall be alone. And you know, I mean, Musa says, but you do know in the hamming delicate and never did I usually alone disappoint the people of the time of the Prophet Selim or the Sahaba. She had it all. She was that knowledgeable. Brothers and sisters, I'm going to share one story with you I have a

00:29:20--> 00:29:59

sister that was connected to the Quran. And I will wrap it up from there, because it was these you know, it was even you we talked about Asia and there was inquisitiveness, and there's something about women, that they're such better, you know, individuals at studying anyone that I know that is taking classes with their sisters in the same class. The sisters in that class do far better than the men for some reason. Even in my Islamic studies classes, even in my in my career, the best students have been sisters. And unfortunately, we don't have enough female leadership in the community.

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

Every time a sister needs a discussion, whether it's divorce, whether it's some counseling, religious counseling, what is the CM matter? You know, you have all these men in HUD leading women on women issues, where it's for some of it, it's not even. It's nothing. It's to be modest about asking. But if there was no kana him or at an early mitten, that kind of hierarchy, I wish there was a woman who was educated the matter of height. So the world of women that needed answers can go to her, like there was an ice shop. There was a there was the other women in the time of the problem. And all these legends that we talk about, all became who they are, because they had a mother. There

00:30:43--> 00:30:53

is not a scholar in the history of Islam, that could become anything for rule. This story is unbelievable. Her son, who becomes the Imam of Medina,

00:30:54--> 00:31:25

the man of Medina, 20 years our husband was gone. And he comes back and sees her son teaching he sees this on teaching in Harlem, in Medina how this happened, a single mother was able to raise the enamel of Makkah and Medina. And the reason Emanuel Holly was a product of that image, Shafi was product mothers had a hard time sometimes because they had no food at home, and they would complain to the shift senator sighs home, I'm going to share one story brothers and sisters, honestly, if the sisters in the world, in our communities,

00:31:26--> 00:32:09

you know, men are useful to extend, but the power and the impact and the influence and the the the growth through a sisters intellect is generations, generations Subhanallah you know, it's not the same. I can just imagine my mom not putting that pressure and force on us. And the love that you put for Islam. You know, it's my mom every single night, she makes us read Hadees before going to sleep from childhood until today, when I'm visit her and she said, Hey, before we go to sleep, we're gonna read the Hadees mothers have ancestors have such an instrumental role. And if our children and our families slip away from Islam,

00:32:11--> 00:32:42

you know, is it's it's very accountable for this. Of course the men are but how much can they do we have the influence of this? The sisters have, and I'm gonna share one story with you brothers and sisters of a woman that was an ordinary woman walking back from Hutch it's just a phenomenal how the system was able to leave such an impact in my heart when I read the story. She's on her way back from a HUD and she's she meets the great legend of the level Bob Greene is one of the greatest legends, the teacher remember her

00:32:43--> 00:33:06

and she's on her way back and understood the story quick so we can finish my lecture. And Imam Mubarak who is the teacher of mumble hottie meets this old lady and says to her, what are you doing here? What's going on? I said I'm Ali Khan. She says Salaam on cola Rahim. He replies back in the verse of the Quran. So remember what Rahim Allah says, When are you going?

00:33:07--> 00:33:46

And wait a minute, you know what's your wish your destination? So she says Subhana Allah The SRB I'm the Leela Millan Michelle Holloman. musharaka So she's saying the verses of Salah that she's going back from hold on hold on Mr. Mica, Jean her destination you better knock this nut love bless the land of better marketers, and save the people from such an from woman all those who are being a president. Let's save them from oppression. Could I mean, so in Guatemala says How long have you been here for? And she said to lassa yan in Serbia? I've been here for three straight nights. So it looks like have you had any food? You know, I don't see any food with you. Are you eating? So she

00:33:46--> 00:34:00

says Who are you to inone while you're sitting by now all of you have recognized. She's been questioning Arabic. And she's replying in Quranic Arabic, which is unbelievable. Every question has an answer to the so she says, Okay.

00:34:01--> 00:34:37

I have some food. Why don't you eat something? You know? So she says, before he offers her food, he says How do you do? What do you don't have any water? I don't see any water with you in the desert. So she says in limited limited you do Fatimah mousai don't pay you if you don't find water you can do will do with dirt, clean dirt. And then even Barack says have some food. Have some food. And you know why this story really impressed me because I used to look up to him about it a lot like I still do. I used to read his life. His stories. I was so fascinated by him robotic because his name was Abdullah and my name is Abdullah and I was like, I want to be like this guy. He was generous. He was

00:34:37--> 00:34:56

rich. He was pious. You know, he would do so many things. And he was a teacher. I really was impressed by him. When I read this story of this woman, I was like Smash. Wow, this is this is the It's unbelievable. This is just taking taking them a boredom to to you know, to great school. And so

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

he says Why don't you eat some food.

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

And the sister says thumb at the Museum at the lake have the faster end of the day. And Mubarak says this is your this is not Ramadan. So the lady sister goes back by replying minddata vennela shocking I mean anyone that does any form of voluntary act they get allies grateful and knowledgeable and will reward them greatly. And then even while it says what you are a traveler, you're not supposed to be fasting anyways. So in the Quran, it says to travelers into a bucket Allah says we're in the Sunil Harlequin Kundalini if you fast while you're traveling that's also rewarding for you. And Mubarak is done with this. He says the Muslim to condemn him Islam will kill him Okay, why don't you

00:35:39--> 00:35:56

talk to me the way I'm talking to you it's a little frustrating, right? Like it just makes me normally language because beautiful. So she says my inner freedom in Poland in lella document it there is not a word that is uttered, articulated except there are angels documenting everything.

00:35:58--> 00:35:58

So

00:36:00--> 00:36:10

he says Well, he was he was impressed he was impressed and then even bug so where are you from? What like what's your tribe and who are you and

00:36:11--> 00:36:22

in robotics issue simply she replies back to me well let the formula circuit which you know don't don't go into matters that you don't have any knowledge of don't know don't ask too many questions in the sun our boat also

00:36:24--> 00:36:53

couldn't look like a camera angle masala. Everything we we listen to everything that we see on our minds everyday going to be passed on the division. And even by you know, said I'm sorry, I think I'm trespassing a little bit and this happens multiple times in this discussion. This is the first time she kind of like sets the record straight. And she says that the three but I'm not gonna hold you accountable. Same thing. You saw this and I'm said to her brothers, his brothers and Prophet Muhammad SAW sudden said to the New America, you're forgiven, you're alone.

00:36:54--> 00:37:14

So the Mubarak says, Can I get you on the ride and take you to your your camp and hide you when you get lost? It's complicated. So let me get you to your camp or your cabin wherever you have to go further. So she said well, not the fundamental heading animala anything you do? Good Allah knows. So he lowers the mountain animal. And as you start to mount the animal,

00:37:15--> 00:37:57

she says she says to even Barack khulumani your snack I was like what? Tell the men to lower their gaze. This is a teach, remember how to enter like basically put your eyes down. And they were modest people they were they were very careful. And he he lowers his eyes. She gets onto the monster camel. And as she's getting into the camel, the animal reacts and she falls under some of her dress gets ripped in the robot Ramallah, you know, he apologizes. And she says woman also have a Kumasi button to the Microsoft ad. Oh yeah, everyone can do anything that comes as an affliction. It's not it's for myself. I'm not you're not blameworthy. Nevertheless, he should have been little bit more

00:37:57--> 00:38:38

cautious of this woman writing to the camel. So he ties the camel down. And then she says the ham nasally man, basically when Allah says we give Solomon intellect, finally you're using all of it now. And then they get onto this ride and he she gets into the ride and she starts to recite. So the HANA lady saw Holland and I had that when I couldn't Hello McQueen. Glory to Allah has made these animals subservient to us, and they go for the ride. And as he's writing, he is um, yelling and screaming poetry, like you know, and everybody wants to have a nice, some tunes and some lyrics for the ride. So he's he's reciting some couplets and some poetry so and he's moving very fast. So the

00:38:38--> 00:39:18

sister goes walk Cynthia machico Oldham and so they Calm down, walk smooth, softly, and don't you know and lower your voice, lower the volume, the volume down, and then he puts his volume down and the sister goes, You know what, I gotta say? chromatic esserman couldn't put the Quran on, put the Quran on. And then he starts to read Quran and then he goes, Oh my god, the Kuru 11 A Bab finally this Quran is a benefit and reminder for those who are intellectual, basically, you know, then of the Mubarak asked a million dollar question. He says, Are you married? No, you're married. So the sister goes yeah, you will let me let us do an usher into the concert. Come don't ask questions that

00:39:18--> 00:39:54

if you're answered, you will be disappointed so mind your business. So I when I read this story, this part of the story really intrigued like sister is taking a little bit of to school. And then he said, Okay, fine, you have any children. And she says, alamelu will be known as Xena to hire to dunya indeed, wealth and children are the beauty of this dunya and, and he asks, what do they do because they're getting close to the cabins or the tents. He says there are guides for the Hajj. So there are guides but they lost their mother. So it's kind of ironic, but this is what happens when people are so busy with HUD. She says what I imagine would be Nigeria whom you have to do your

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

guides. So what are their names? So she says what the hell the lobotomy. medela Wakanda, Milan muhfucka

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

Lima you're holding over and she says all the names of Ibrahim Ibrahim Musa and you're here from the Quran. These young men handsome young men, they finally he finds them and they come running and embrace him and welcome to only be hugging him they thank him they kiss him I mean for them being separated from the mother for the party at the times of I mean more than three days we know for sure this happened and they were very grateful for this favor mother said to the children father Arthur will be one of them had he died in Medina saliendo Are you a scalper I'm and finally it can be risky mean who will get thrown out of it a wannabe come I had a

00:40:40--> 00:41:23

calf Allah says when they walk the sleepers woke up they send someone to the to the market to bring some good food as gulper I'ma bring the healthiest food for our guests they go and bring the food and the lady sister goes to Emma melodic you need to try the food that you're going to eat kulu what Shinobu honey I'm Bhima is left unfilled again in hollier you know i inshallah Allah give us a trophy to hear this announcement on the Day of Judgment. When Allah subhana wa Tada, His angels will say to us kulu, he was sure he would drink, honey and Bhima slept until I am in hollier. For all that you have done in the past, so the system is saying the verse that's going to be used in general

00:41:23--> 00:41:24

by the angels.

00:41:25--> 00:42:04

And he says, No, I'm not going to eat. He's like, Who is this individual? Is she a human? Or a genie? Like, if you what kind of creature is this? She's only been speaking, I want to know, the secret behind this, like, what's the purpose of the sister? You know, meeting only talking about how first of all how knowledgeable she is to the Quran, where the answer in the Quran and how like how the Quran is her life. She's so connected to the Quran, the Han Lockerbie with the tabula, she embodied the Quran in her life in a memory, you know, something beyond what we can imagine. So one of the children say that since she was since we were born, we never heard her ever speak anything

00:42:04--> 00:42:47

except for Quran. And then she says, Why am I guilty? We've been called Illa de la community, there are angels who are documenting everything that we say, so she wants to be careful and only reading and recite the Quran. I'm not, you know, I don't want your husband to come home and say, you know, what's the food? You know? And you say, you know, something from the Quran Lila, if you're curious Isla amorality, she that you will save Well, you gotta mudaraba there'll be a lady Aparna mindu. I'm not saying just as we should, you know, imply this into our life, you know, and when you have some bad food, you say that I mean behati Min, Soo Ji, Awesome, cool. That's what's leftover. I'm not

00:42:47--> 00:42:54

saying we should do that. But what I'm saying is connected to the Quran, let me finish the story. So um,

00:42:56--> 00:43:35

he one says that for 14 years, she's only been speaking the Quran, the other child says, since I was born, that's all I heard. And then everything about him totally, he eats a food takes, you know, sunrises joy and leaves. This part I read somewhere else has written in his book that Russia and I read this in that book. And I was interested to find the other half of the story part of the story. And he says that the writer writes that ignoble travel to beta lockless. And he was from Iraq, he went to MIT to knock this and he, um, he went to visit the home of the sec I there's a righteous person here. And I don't know if people know this people in the past would go to the homes of the

00:43:35--> 00:44:11

righteous individuals, sometimes even women, and ask them for, like, no, there's like this custom of going to righteous men, and asking for more. But there was a custom where men would come to pious women and knock on the doors, and just ask for to offer the children themselves and they went outside and they will leave Wow, what what it was, and there are still people like that. See pies, people don't come to you say, Hey, we're pies. We have to find them, you know, Mm hmm. No, we allow the Sony in other books, scholars, right. There are chapters of where Seattle to solid mean, there's a dedicated chapter to visit. Like there's visiting the sick, visiting your neighbors, visiting your

00:44:11--> 00:44:39

parents, there are chapters dedicated in visiting the righteous people, because just in their visits, there is going to be a blessing. So he wanted to visit her and just, you know, receive some of our blessings in two hours. And he was told that she had passed away he was very disappointed. He went to when he rested that night. He witnessed her in his dream and he asked the question that majority of people who are righteous would ask a righteous person after the death

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

right

00:44:42--> 00:44:59

Martha I don't know who big mouth I don't know who what how did I love you with you after you left this world? Not this is not you know, rare where this happens. This happens all I have friends in America who have lost their relatives and they've asked this question to their relatives.

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

And then next world, it's not like, you know supernatural this is this is this is if it doesn't happen, you should be concerned, this is very normal, where the people would meet their relatives and in a dream and ask them what the gods will do. What happened, you know, math I don't know how big, you know.

00:45:21--> 00:45:22

She says

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

in two replies in the verse of sort of commerce and I love these verses in delphina feature 91 female goddesses have been in the medical field, the pious or with the, with a lost battle in rivers flowing gardens with rivers flowing beneath, in the melachim are very close to a loss. sisters, my respective sisters and brothers

00:45:47--> 00:46:31

having this connection with the Benin in the knowledge of the is the greatest gift. And then having this passion that this Deen and the knowledge of being is brought up in our children, they brought up in this environment, this garden of knowledge. And the impact of one sister is generations long generations long. You know, it's an all starts in the lap of a woman all starts there. All starts early child education, modern child, early child education teaches us from the psychology aspect. Children pick up everything by the age of two, their behavior, and their development is done by four. What if you had a mother or a sister, someone who's around the child at that time, of course,

00:46:31--> 00:47:06

a lot of us work, a lot of our mothers are working the time that we have, from you know, when the child comes to the world, and the Quran is being recited, and we are reciting the Quran and we're connected to the Quran, what are we gonna have, we're gonna have the next body. You know, my father used to say this to us all the time, you know, from the wives of the Prophet, Sunnah. They would literally when they would take the children and put them on their bodies, and they would look at them and they would have these aspirations, you know, and they would feed milk with these aspirations. And they would cry with these aspirations. And they would pray with these aspirations.

00:47:06--> 00:47:44

And those aspirations come true. Just like today, how parents, they aspire their children to become doctors, engineers and professionals, which is absolutely great. But aspiration for your child to also be harmful for you to be harmful to you to learn the language of the Quran, is something that's not very difficult. Everything is in the tip of your finger. Because Allah subhanaw taala has given you access to it now last month and makers people who value every minute of our life properly were able to mobilize our time and our space and our resources so we can get closer to Allah subhanaw taala and nothing brings you closer to Allah the Quran and in the knowledge of the clan. The

00:47:44--> 00:48:21

Professor Muslim says in the conductor drone a lovely shade of gold I mean knowledge I mean we nothing can bring you closer to Allah The faster and quicker and more swiftly than the Quran it's your it's your pathway in not in the Quran is knowledge in the Quran is Arabic in the Quran is insight of what happened in the past and what's going to happen in the farsight. All this is happening in the Quran. We just want to do it. So I'm gonna let you have Shahar, Dr. Haifa, who was in your community who has given you so much access to this knowledge, and just embracing it sometimes you have all this light around your room, and it's hard to admire it and take benefit of

00:48:21--> 00:48:30

it. So we asked the last panel that you and I are able to benefit from this and I i've been you know, waiting to meet Dr. payphone person in Sharla.

00:48:31--> 00:48:38

theosophist comes out about your contributions and your services. They'll continue to take work from you and your community does.

00:48:40--> 00:49:16

Sheikh Abdullah when it's the time so but I have one question for you because I know you have to go because of Mahara. If you can tell all the sisters who are listening to us, what is the obstacle? why women these days, and I'm focusing on women because this applies to men also. I'm not going to say this woman and I love this story. And I every time I read the Quran, I remember the story. But why? What is the obstacles that the woman cannot be? Like? knowledgeable like I say die show or this woman, like the Imams around us. What do you think is the obstacles?

00:49:18--> 00:49:36

reality? I think the reality is that there is this overwhelming responsibility placed on the shoulders of women, some of it which is not its social, some of its cultural. And some of it's just, you know, domestic and career responsibilities are on our sisters.

00:49:37--> 00:49:59

Men automatically because of their gender and sexual orientation. They shy away from these response, oh, I'm not changing the diapers, I'm not cooking the food. And so women have to do men role and women role and mother role and daughter in law role. You have so many roles in this culture. But I think if if a sister is sincerely thinking about considering that

00:50:00--> 00:50:41

Access of knowledge. It's basically down to two things. One is structure, structures, committee structure, how much and where everything can be done today, everyone has time to when they want it, we want to make time for exercise one hour for exercise. Everyone knows it. When my wife is doing something, I know it. My mother knows that her parents overseas know it, she's busy in this hour. So I think that one hour, you know if, if sisters can, if they're working, they can cut down some hours to study during the week. And now there's so many institutions and so many places to access those through you few hours a week, whatever and you have to be from the four categories or do Alamin

00:50:42--> 00:50:57

Amata Andaman mamma, Mia and oma have been every sister has to be from one of these four categories. I always say this to my students, you cannot be exempt from this. It doesn't matter how busy you are. Either you become a scholar. Either you become the next doctor. Okay?

00:50:58--> 00:51:36

And you study and you go on and and write and read and research and everyone could do this on a limb and you become a student and a student. Just continue and then the definition of a student just like the the definition of a soccer player, a soccer player has a BA in their car all the time. They're always thinking about a soccer field. When they look at a turf like wow, the grass is greener, a student of knowledge when she looks at a book and she goes for example, I have this book right here and he said hold on a B So somewhere any book they look at a book like it gets your mouth gets wet. You have next Shahab della that's our next course we saw how

00:51:39--> 00:51:59

beautiful book and you have right now my eyes on the books behind you because I'm intrigued with books, just like we are at window I was at a gas station, and my wife saw a cupcake commercial. And she said, Wow, that cupcake is delicious. Students have knowledge, they hear a Hadith, they hear a story the hearing opportunity.

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

They want to so there's number two Muslim Yeah, always ready to listen, that doesn't mean passive listener. But every day, maybe half an hour, 45 minutes driving to work, driving back from work, exercising, some podcasts, always increasing your knowledge always, you know, adding to it with intention to practice. And number four is more hip, I have to love those who are doing it. Those who love scholars, and their contribution. This is what's going to happen maybe they will not become scholars but I guarantee you the children will and those

00:52:34--> 00:52:42

those were scholars but the disrespect scholars, your children will never learn the knowledge that's 100% so this is my final advice for this

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

lecture

00:52:46--> 00:52:57

Please forgive me for interrupting but absolutely we're running short of time and I'm gonna go all the time may Allah reward you we have to invite for a whole one for you only

00:52:58--> 00:53:02

took more than the time allocated to me because I'm gonna look at system level booking

00:53:03--> 00:53:05

and your interest is UC Santa Monica I

00:53:07--> 00:53:47

love what I have to share. Hamza, please forgive me we pass the time, but I'm going to give you all my time. So I'm not going to be speaking. Absolutely. So Sheikh Hamza actually is our last speaker, but not the least he actually joined us in St. Louis is about a year and few months, right? She comes in. He's also a native of St. Louis. He was born raised in St. Louis memorize the Quran in order for corn here in St. Louis and then he decided as I always tell everybody if you can you need to park and go and go to the sources if you can, so he moved to Pakistan and then he studied beautiful Arabic that's the first thing that I was impressed by Sheikh Hamza is amazing our ob in

00:53:47--> 00:54:13

turn to be he studied for two years as a foundation and then he finished the whole six years of study with real honesty I think you started with the TGS money am I am I correct? Sure Hamza ma What about Allah then he came back and hamdulillah hellbrunn me and we were fortunate to have him as our scholar resident with no further ado, I'm going to give you the rest of the time and duck Mullah here and please forgive us for for the delay.

00:54:16--> 00:54:33

rashanna Rahim and hamdulillah hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam or other sing it in more setting records? I mean MDR Mohammed in guada he was having he was living to the reality he was where he wanted to be our understanding

00:54:35--> 00:54:59

from my mother llama didn't know that I'm working now to Hina wow, you know, on Shimla Why should know that with ralina or Vina robanda Allah I mean, the brothers and sisters, I'm all the way at the end and they say that the last speaker hasn't toughest because all of the easier points to cover are already covered. But nonetheless 100 I think

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

Majority of the important discussions we've already had, such as the importance of women, examples of great women in our history. And then right now we talked about what are some of the obstacles that come in the path of women learning knowledge, what I want you to get to, because I feel this is a very, very real and personal issue that many men and women so it's not specific to any gender, many men and women they grapple with this regularly. And that is, we heard about eyeshadow, viola Han, we heard about all of these unsettlement, all these great companions, a female, the men of love and Lister with Abdullah bin does the great moms. We hear about them. But what if I can't do this

00:55:43--> 00:56:22

full time? What if I can't take off for years? or six years? or eight years? What if I can't do that? What does that mean for me, and men and women, especially later on? You know, when you've already chosen a career, maybe you have kids, and now you're married? Now you don't have the time? This question, it really bugs, a lot of people. So what I want you to do in today's in my short portion, I'm going to tackle this question, but you have to wait to the end, because I'll go through the Hadeeth. And this heartbeat that was chosen as the title of the event, that if Allah guides one person through you, I'll show how this hadn't directly answered this question. And it's not

00:56:22--> 00:56:58

something that will make sense initially. but bear with me in sha Allah and you all will see this headed. If Allah guides one person through you, and your local deca module and your luck, I mean, who would inom when I saw the flyer for the event immediately, that's the first thing that came to my mind. So I open up the books and I immediately began searching for the happenings. And those that study, you know, the heavy sciences, they know that the heavy when you're when you're searching for the head, there's one thing is authenticity. If you look at the sahab, the hands on you're making sure that you're looking at the authentic sources. And then within the authentic sources they can be

00:56:58--> 00:57:40

various, you can be various different narrations, some with more detailed, somewhat less detail. So you look at all of the roots and then you can properly understand the context of the Holy Grail. There's an entire science known as double reading about what is the context of this heading? What is the longer version what is the shorter version, which companions narrated it, and this heading as I began to sit down and explore it, you know, I found that before we get into this heading there, this particular heading was mentioned among three characteristics about this companion, that we are going to speak about whom this applies to this one companion now I'll link later, when he when he was

00:57:41--> 00:57:54

being cursed by some people later on, or he was being spoken ill of a particular companion, but then he left sided grab your password, your loved one, the Highfields like a Muslim. He was asked, Why don't you curse them?

00:57:55--> 00:58:20

Everyone else's cursing him in our scene, or speaking ill of him, why don't you Kirsten? unsanded not be a part of your life. He is one of the 10 that are guaranteed Jenna, he's a very senior companion of the Messenger of Allah. So I sent him He said, I won't curse him obviously because he is a very noble Companion of the Messenger of Allah. So I sent them I know Companion of the Messenger of Allah, so I send them can be cursed. But there are three specific reasons

00:58:21--> 00:58:43

why Wilkerson, and these three are specific honorific titles, honorific statements, I'm the Messenger of Allah SLM for this one person. If I had one, out of these three, I would think it's enough from the community wahida to me, if I had one of these three, the one of these three, it would be enough for me.

00:58:44--> 00:59:24

These three that he said, the first one is this Hadeeth. And he said, the Hadees is very long. But to summarize it, this happened where it happened at the Battle of liba in the seventh year of hyjal. And the Prophet of Allah Salaam is there with the companions and a long story short, the first two, the first few days of Lakota with your loved one is given the ally or given the flag, right, those of you that have an interest in history, it's very interesting to know how wars and battles were fought early on, right you had you had a you had a big flag at the beginning, which the commander had and then you had small flags for the different you know, parts of the army. So Abubakar

00:59:24--> 00:59:56

villandry, with the provinces and and put him at the front and he gave him the flag, and he wasn't able to break through and get through the fort. The next day or mow the lawn same thing happened with the provinces and on the third day, he said that the only unknown Riot other than Allah Julian, you hit below our assuta where you were in law, who was who he said tomorrow, and then he said, You have to have lava on a day. He said, tomorrow I'll give the flag to a man whom he loves aligned His messengers Law Center, but that's not it.

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

Allah and His Messenger

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

him right i mean that's the ultimate that's what you're looking for. There's nothing else that you really want as a muscle. All you want is to love a love is messenger and to be loved by them and he says this man he is loved by Allah His Messenger he loves Allah His Messenger and you have to Hello on it and he will be able to conquer this now naturally the donation for a Muslim says asylum inside

01:00:23--> 01:00:59

Mossad a seven year old you're low on he's the narrator he says that you know a bit later Yahoo a bit further to lay a hold on that the entire Muslims they spent the night discussing Yahoo boom like they're they're thinking about what's going on. I mean think about if all of us you know have been through some form of schooling you know when it's you know it's graduation day or you know you're supposed to get your results you can't sleep you know you're wondering you know, I wonder if I did good you know you're nervous but then you're excited. All of this is going on and Omar on the line listen to what he says he says so on login, my email at the end laomi are muddled. Ilana said I

01:00:59--> 01:01:22

never wanted to be a leader. I never wanted to be appointed to be in the front except for that day that day I said I hope I'm that person tomorrow because if you're that person tomorrow Allah loves you and the Messenger of Allah sent him loves you you need nothing else he said the slept the night he said in the morning everybody got up and everybody is wanting to be at the front the profit center he says hey Nadia Where is on

01:01:23--> 01:01:31

and then the backdrop to that is that I needed your logo on Ghana Ahmed he had a you know Rama is a specific It's a type of

01:01:33--> 01:02:08

you know, a type of infection or you know your eyes swell up to a particular condition and I needed to learn how to use to deal with this condition on and off through his eyes were swollen you know he's you know added discomfort so in the Hadith before you remember how he narrates this he says I know there are 100 foreigners who live there I'll stay back meaning that you know I'll stop somewhere earlier I won't travel as fast with them I'll kind of be at the at the backup and I need to get on is being asked and the companions are looking where's it it'll be long he's not here. So one companion says love your lawn. He stands up he says Yasuda love it as long as he here but he is

01:02:09--> 01:02:51

a little you know he's kind of in the back because he's not feeling well. The prophets have said call him and he was called and the Protestants galleywood what happened and he says you also alleged that he I know you know my eyes elsewhere Allah and the Messenger of Allah sent him he took his lycett saliva and urine said he put he put my head in his lap and then he placed it on the eyes of audio below on and look at the bottom of the Messenger of Allah said them on your mobile and he says mesh turkey he says for that I never complained ever again lobby lobby sued it not because of a headache and not because of something in my eyes my eyes and my head were fine after that never

01:02:51--> 01:03:26

again did I have to face any problem. Now I know your mom is given this flag and this is one of you know in the the following me Menaka but I deal with your loved one and the virtues of it hold on this is one of the most oft cited hudy he's given the flat and everybody's behind it and it's really you know, the exchange between him and a particular man of a boat and how he uses a door as a shield it's very beautiful if you you know trauma hopefully and our ceiling we get there may Allah you know on Monday night we used to do it we'll get there and discuss the amazing scenes from Heba but when honeyville galana is going forward the Messenger of Allah send them early on turns around and he

01:03:26--> 01:03:29

says the eldest Illa Allah Oh buddy

01:03:30--> 01:04:16

What do I fight for? What am I fighting for? Had they acquitted Miss Lana? Is it so that they become Muslims they become the way that we are and there are various narrations in other words I do want to know what is it that I should keep in mind and the province that I mean gives them a set of regulations amongst them he says on for the honor this legal had that tendency that is a hearty mudroom, slammy bedroom, big, burly human happy lucky that go forth slowly, don't just go forth and attack go forth, slowly invite them to Islam. And tell them about what is obligatory upon Allah. Allah has made obligatory upon them now to hear it make sense because you know, the point of of

01:04:16--> 01:04:44

jihad in Islam is not to kill people, you know, Islam the process and have never set out on any expedition to kill people to capture people. The point is to present Islam, and that's why the person was in your focus shouldn't be to kill people. That's not why we're here. Our focus is to present Islam. And then he says, so I know they want to understand why we're not here to kill. We're not here to conquer we're not here to do that. He says, so we're lucky that the Allahu veeco Julian where he then higher on like me and yakun and

01:04:46--> 01:04:59

he says, Listen, it's not about how many people you conquer. It's not about how big our kingdom gets. It's about if one person because of you is guided to Allah you are the means that is better than for you than him.

01:05:00--> 01:05:37

Morning or night and you know Dr. heifer she translated that as you know read camels and she mentioned the price but you know, hovel Hydra Rahim Allah when he comments he says something very interesting he says it's not just about the price it's about giving a dish be giving a an example to people about what is the most valuable right someone today you know when when you get something they're like man you'd hit the jackpot you know you won the lottery, right? Obviously the lottery is not a lot but you know the idea is that something that's considered an instant amount of wealth man he has his own private jet it's something that's in our mind it's seen as the epitome of wealth and

01:05:37--> 01:06:14

that's the best thing you could have for them red candles is the best example that you can give in other words, the lottery a jackpot a private jet a yacht all of those things is homeowner norm for them for them that's what it is. It's red candles. He says oh howdy for you this keep your keep it keep your you're the leader of this army you're leading the Muslims don't let this get to your head. Remember that this is what matters. Now this is the first part of the of the three things I mentioned about I need to be alone. The second I'll leave the third unit the shortage of time The second is this is in the seventh year in the ninth year of digital in the Battle of tebu. The

01:06:14--> 01:06:48

Prophet said that he would usually leave someone behind obviously you're leaving Medina the women the elderly the children are there and you need someone to look over them so he decided to leave behind on you know the Lord and Alia of Yolanda was bummed out because I needed to be alone is a fierce warrior, you know his poetry in war, and he's one of the bravest of all companions on the lawn who feels like he's left behind so he says jasola have left any man so he was so young Yeah, that's what you've left him behind with women and children. Like you know, like I'm a child or I'm weak or you know, you know, I need to stay behind yada so I'm a warrior. I don't want to see here I

01:06:48--> 01:07:00

want to be out there in the battlefield. And the Prophet of Allah sent him He says, I'm I thought a lot and the Kula mini demon Zilla de musawah. Beam angeletti Hakuna Musa.

01:07:02--> 01:07:28

Are you not pleased that you are to me? What How long was to Moosa? Illa Underhill, hula and whatever. Except there is no Prophethood after me, how would I miss that we're both profits, you're not a prophet, but the way how to when he took care of his people. When Musa was gone? Musa went and how do I send him any complaint that I want to go to? So I can speak with Allah to he stayed back for more for a task that isn't seen as noble taking care of the people,

01:07:30--> 01:07:44

but still have him as a prophet of Allah? What is the correlation between these two characteristics of the alarm, the first one on either the lower one is a commander. He's at the forefront of the army, he has the flag in his hand.

01:07:45--> 01:08:21

And that is an example of many of the scholars many of the people are making up for what about the second one, the second one or the other? One has something that seems very insignificant that he's left behind that because of that, you know, you don't have any value anymore. But the prophets of Allah, he did this specifically to show us that audio, the alarm of staying back, and audio that on the forefront of the army is the same if your intention is there, because the reality is not everybody can go forth and do the same thing. Not everybody can study six years, not everybody can study eight years, not everybody can leave their career, whatever they're doing and do this.

01:08:23--> 01:08:57

So the point that we learn from this is that whatever position Allah has put you in, is equal you are equally rewarded. And that's why whatever Michelle would say, you know, you know in the in the traditional model, sorry that the Jamia system is grateful with no, you know, you begin out in the beginning you're teaching them out there, you're teaching Arabic or you're teaching, you know, how to hold on and you make your way up. And then you know, you're the dean, you know, in for him, especially in the in the, in the Pakistani, and the Indian mother says, You teach Sahil Buhari, it's considered, you know, that if we're honest, you know, when this is shameful, it's meant to say that

01:08:57--> 01:09:33

he just hated it, you know, that's the highest privilege or he's the head of the dollar stuff, right? So our teachers would say, it doesn't matter if you are, if you in your career reach, you're just in your local community, or you are a speaker of the highest platforms and 1000s of people are listening to you. All of those are equally playing an important role. They're equally rewarded, the person who's teaching about that, and the person who's using the body, they're equally rewarded for their efforts. Because if you can't teach any of that data, they won't be able to learn your body, somebody has to come forth and do this. And so as we move forward, and as we try our best to be as

01:09:33--> 01:09:59

sharp listen from the for, at least try and you know, that's primarily what gender Institute many of them are doing is that they're they're giving a model where you have a different career, you're a mother, and you know, four brothers, you know, you have so many institutes where you can get a few hours a week and you can get closer and you can spend more time learning whenever you can. And you know, people in the in the family, especially the husbands, they should encourage their wives and let their wives have some of that time to to improve themselves.

01:10:00--> 01:10:35

At the same time, keep in mind that if you're not able to do that, for some reason, you're not less, and your reward is less those that are placed in the situation, to study full time to travel to do all of these amazing things. And those that are, you know, they just become demands of their marriage or their teaching kids, young kids are those that are just teaching the kids in the house, all of those are rewarded in the eyes of Allah, and you aren't belittled in the eyes of Allah because of that. So really, one of the things that the point of doing all of this and talking about all of this is an idea of your loved one. At one point in his life, he's the commander of the army,

01:10:35--> 01:11:11

he's at the head of the army, he's leading 1000s of Muslims with the flag in his hand. And at one point he's staying behind to take care of the women and children, both things are happening at the same time, it's the same deal of your loved one. So if one of us is placed in a situation where we have the ability to do this full time and humbler we're like a little dorm, at the front of the battle. And if we are not able to, due to sickness due to other reasons, due to responsibilities due to, you know, circumstances that are not in our control, a lot of that happens, we are still similar to the comparatively low on who are placed in that role. So really learning that regardless of how

01:11:11--> 01:11:45

hard we try, sometimes practically speaking, we may not be able to get there, but nonetheless because we continue to keep trying Allah azza wa jal will reward us according to our intentions, and we will be equally rewarded regardless of which situations were in does that love Waylon? I hope that that is of some help. And may Allah accept from Dr. hayfields lokalen for inviting me for all of us. And the good work that Janae Institute does all the scholars Mashallah they came and they shared their insights and their wisdom escolares agenda, he allows us this to be transformative in our lives, was said on Monday.

01:11:47--> 01:12:36

He called Sarah flour, cul de sac malachite, and I'm just going to end up with a couple of things is in front of Allah subhanaw taala when we're going to stand, he's not going to ask me which school you graduated from, or which community you lead. And this is for everyone, and definitely for the sisters. And that's why I put that Heidi, and he's gonna ask me, What did you do? Because the result is not in my hand is what did I do to bring a change on this earth basically bring a loss pan over time, and the love of Allah subhanaw taala and the knowledge about Allah pantalla to the people and fully agree with May Allah reward all the speakers. Yes, there is amazing examples. But there is a

01:12:36--> 01:12:50

lot of examples. And because of the lack of time, where there's a book called circle to software, I'm sure you the scholars knows about it. When there is not even the name of the righteous person. It's Arabic or avida. It's like a

01:12:51--> 01:13:43

worship or a worshiper might work the point I'm trying to make each one of us in their own life home. Let's make the focus on two things. Number one, I change because I cannot guide anyone unless I am guided. Say it now I do not know Swati sought was Sam gave him this amazing advice. He will say it so I need to change number one and this is for all the sisters I need to work on myself. Not to be a scholar necessarily not everybody. Everybody has to have a job and a place in society. But in that job or a place especially living in an non Muslim world through you the impression about Islam changed the near the level because you run wahida you never know that interaction with that person

01:13:43--> 01:14:29

later on what we'll do number one, in your home, in your home, you're the example you're the example so now time comes in. I get up for the Salah. I don't have to be PhD in Islamic Studies. It's on our time we all know you go yeah dilla who because you run wide, Allah will guide one person through. So the point I was trying to make in this whole program today is which all the speakers Tamara Kala put that but I loved what she Abdullah said the Ireland beam beam ahead. And what your Hamza said is basically you not everybody has to be a scholar, but you put a change and what's most your house have started by giving these examples. That's the goal put a plus as the goal but to Meanwhile,

01:14:29--> 01:14:59

meanwhile, as long as you are on that path, and Allah will change you through you, that's the most important thing. I will stand up in front of Allah and I say Yo Allah, I'll do what I can do, what my ability or what my society or what my time allowed me. So May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all and I will end up with an amazing statement from Satan or other mergeable about knowledge. Then of course he's talking about the knowledge of Allah and he says the alemu Lane, learn

01:15:00--> 01:15:51

Learn the knowledge, because learning the knowledge will lead to the art of a las panatela. seeking knowledge is an act of worship. seeking knowledge is an act of worship. Studying It is like you're doing a sphere, glorifying Allah, looking for knowledge is an act of jihad. And teaching it to someone who doesn't know is a charity. And giving and serving the people of knowledge is makes you an eye and that person close to Allah and lonely the knowledge is the solace at time of loneliness and it's the front when we are alone. May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept from all of us on behalf of myself and Arjuna Institute desert malachite for giving us your time may Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:15:51--> 01:16:15

accept from all of us. May Allah Subhana Allah mix each one of us all the beautiful sisters and brothers who are listening to us. I can do that through us one person will change your ebme subhanak Allahumma Behanding eyeshadow and let you learn stuff we will cover today. So Allah Allah say number one, it was Javi testament kathira Desert Mahayana May Allah reward you all
