My dear respected brothers and sisters who are listening First they said Mr Kumar
We are here to discuss one great individual who has had passed away about two years from now. And he was from this Masjid from your local Masjid and you are very, very lucky people in Allah azza wa jal doesn't send people like that in the world, except that he has very great favor to send people like this. And many of us, like the mom said beforehand, many of us haven't really benefited as we should have. Even myself, I I even think now, I should have spent more time with him and I should have got more out of him. And it's only when somebody leaves the SEC in law, what a what a what a loss. And to understand these people, you have to really get close to them. And even I didn't know what Allah
azza wa jal had given me as having the companionship of such an individual. Because I'm saying to you, I'm not saying I'm not making this up, I'm not exaggerating. Allah azza wa jal has, I really think one of the biggest worries of Allah azza wa jal in recent times, to be in Britain, was, you know, our chef, our study, wonderful Rahim. Allah azza wa jal bless his soul, Allah azza wa jal, you know, give him the highest abode in a lien. You don't have to be stingy you can say I mean loudly. Because one one day somebody will make dua for you as well like this allows our gel give have a lot of mercy on study. mala, Rahim. Allah have a lot of mercy on him. Sammy
mela raised his status in the dunya and akhira. May Allah give him the highest of Odin lien? I mean, may Allah azzawajal resurrect him amongst the prophets, the stupidity in the Shahada, the Sala hain on the Day of Judgment. May Allah azza wa jal take him with those straight to Jana, when they go to Jana. I mean, I'm Allah azza wa jal give him genital for those. Now, who was this individual, and I'm not here to tell you about his whole life, because I don't know about his whole life. Some people said to me, and I'm not going to speak about his whole life. No, I spent four close years with him. And those years were between 1993 to about 1997. Okay, for close years I spent with him.
And after that I had many years where we wrote letters to each other. I was on the phone to him. I came and visited Oldham several times and I spent time with him. And a lot of it was you know, after the foreclosures with him, a lot of it was over the phone and through letters and other means. And of course, Alhamdulillah I have to say later on as well. I have had the opportunity that was that do wonderful Brahim. We used to call him Allah for him. And you call him Mr. D wonderful names. Rahim. Allah, Allah mercy on him. He literally even performed my nikka. So I had that opportunity, the whole process of even finding who I wanted to find, you know, having a nigga hidden and even after
that and forget, I'll tell you a lot about you know, study today. Obviously, you study is not here, and he used to hate anyone who would praise Him.
That's one great thing about if you ever praised him in front of his face, his his his face would change. He never liked people to praise him. And if you found out that you're going to start talking big about him behind his back, he would not give you the same closeness that he will give others. Because he didn't he didn't want you to advertise them. And I had to be very careful throughout his life. Okay, and you've probably noticed I've mentioned him a couple of times in my band here in the Yes, but I've never actually given a band like this. I've never actually spoken about him and what I know of he never given a lecture like this. Why? Because I knew that if the moment he finds out if
he was alive, Rahim Allah, if he finds out then he's going to it's going to hurt him to know that I have exposed you know, whatever, a lot whatever he did for Alaska without saying because he was not only eight
scholar of the deed. Now you can find many scholars of the law, Eileen, Eileen is a scholar of the diorama of scholars of the DEA will find many of them. But to find a scholar of the dean, who is hammer mill, who practices what he what he knows, is rare.
And what's even rarer than that to is to find a scholar who's practicing the religion, and who is meticulous, who has a class and sincerity at the same time that that is even read. And what is even rare is to find an individual like that, who's there to give everything he can to you, if you're there to take what he's offering to you. That's how you that's how wonderful ramaala that's how he was. So let me tell you how I came across him because I'm not going to tell you about his whole life. Okay. There are many people who could tell you about his whole life but I can't say that. So I was a I was an individual who went to madrasa first at the age of 14. And I went to Dewsbury and I
spent four years there I did my head there. I mean before that, let me tell you a bit before that so that you can get an understanding of when I came to Milan further Haim Rahim Allah when I came to him, what was my understanding? Okay, my, my understanding of the religion and I was a born Muslim. And some people even questioned me sometimes and say, you know, is a Shia, you know, has an alley, you know, the name has an issue, because Hasson and Ali, I'm not ashamed. I'm a Sunni Alhamdulillah born Sunni. So what happened is, my whole early learning of Islam was to my father Rahim Allah. And my father was not an alum. He was not a scholar of the deen, whatever he knew, he taught us in the
house, and was from my mother. My mother probably knew quite a lot more than my father in some regards. And she used to tell me whatever stories it is that she knew from her mother from her father, because my grandfather, my granddad, rahimullah, he was a very pious man, and he was a knowledgeable person, as well. So my mother used to give me a lot of the information of the deen and my father gave it and that's all I had. And then later on, I went to a local Masjid in you know, I was born and brought up in Walsall next to, you know, Birmingham. And whatever I learned from my local doctor, my local Masjid, that's all I knew. When I went to Dewsbury at the age of 14, I had to
had to check everything that I had done up to them. Because now this is a real, real place of learning. So everything my mother told me, my father told me milestone before that everything had to be rechecked again. So I kind of went through, you know, one of those, you know, sometimes when you go and you reboot your whole programming, yeah. And you kind of, you know, override the inflammation. So I rewrote a lot of the stuff that I learned beforehand, okay, that was in Dewsbury. I didn't
memorize the Quran there. And then after that, I did some Arabic studies. And this was so I went there in 1989 to Dewsbury 1993, I came to Nottingham now this is where I meet to study. This is where I meet him. So I've given you a quick fast track of where I came from. And I'm going to give you a bit more because you won't understand how to study came across to me, rahimullah if you don't understand where I came from. Okay, because I was, you know, those of them who know me from mother's days, I wasn't your best student, you know what I'm trying to say? Like, I was one of those cheeky students that would get up to whatever he could get up to. And I was very, very fortunate that I
came across one other him hamdulillah Why? Because in Dewsbury right where I studied, I mean, they had the knowledge I don't get me wrong, they had the knowledge there. But what would happen is you leave the classroom and after you leave, leave the classroom, you're in the boarding section. And when you're in the boarding section.
The only people that are supervising You are the supervisors, there's probably two supervisors on site. You got the whole place to yourself from about 334 o'clock, you're free. As students already six o'clock, six o'clock, we had to come downstairs all of us had to read together what we call the karate, Islamorada, you go over revision of what you're doing all you prepare for the next day's lesson. So we used to do that till eight o'clock. So that's the time when some teachers are there after that after a while you free again you go to the talk quarters, no one's there. Okay. It's just you and the students, and you have supervisors that might be there now and again, at 11 o'clock
bedtime, the supervisor will come out and get everyone to bed and that's it. Okay. Now this dynamic completely changed in Nottingham. So Nottingham were in Nottingham? Well, this was in flintham. Okay, a 46. Newark, near Newark, from a six miles near Newark. There was an RF camp.
That x RF comm site that had 120 rooms, okay, this place was different.
Lick it had you know he was he was mashed up no one was using it for years and years. Okay. Some of you might have even heard that my son Jean story whatever I've shared with you from this place here you're laughing here. So this was the place now there was no star mala Kemal Rahim Allah. Okay say Rahim Allah May Allah bless him as well honestly every day I make dua, and I'm not joking. Every day I try my best to make dua for including when I make parent movies my both my parents have passed away. So my grandfather and find my father in law was passed away. I'll include him, but without forgetting the name. Every day I make dua for study by name. And every day I make dua for mama Kemal
why because manakamana al Rahim Allah He was the one who started the Nottingham madrasa
and he was at Duke rivers he was the Imam a lot of people might might know him. He was the
you could say he was the best or the I reckon one of the best teachers in the whole of the UK in now and stuff no one I don't think anyone would ever compete with Monaco Rahim Allah in that one seven grammar, the grammar and morphology no one would compete and his Arabic was like the Arabs and the Arab is to love him. Now, he opened this place he got this he got this deadly place. And at that time, when we went there was only 25 students. Okay, so when I joined there was about 25 students. First they started in Nottingham in madami Masjid and then after that, they moved over to this dirty place. And and it was it was a very sort of a tattered place, you know, a place where there was no
heating. We had to have, you know, small sort of electric heaters, fan heaters, their place was freezing, you could put the heaters on all day. And these these walls, Bahama you know this building, it was bombproof.
His building was RF comm you can imagine right it was bomb proof. There was no one wall was eight bricks.
It was two bricks this way to bricks that way to bricks this way into this hour. How do we know we have to drill through this Brava not me personally, that to drill through this, you know when you want to make a warrior. He was crazy. He was a bricks. And what happened is when they made for two bricks, tubal tube is in between the gap. So even if a bomb fell, and it blew four bricks away, it wouldn't be able to shatter the other four bricks of the inner part. So this was a humongous sort of building. It had three massive holes. You had a large sort of dining kitchen area it had
it had 10.6 acres of land around it. And 10.6 acres of land was all like you know, it was like a wooded area. It was all you know, to our fields, trees. And it was a lot of wildlife that that was that was around a beautiful serene place middle of nowhere, the closest place. You know when we had to go to town. closest place to go to Nottingham town was 15 miles away. Okay, closest shop was probably about six miles away to New York. So it was it was in the middle of nowhere. But this was the beauty of it were the dynamic changes in Dewsbury where I was when I finished, you know, when we finished our studies, we were to ourselves as always supervised looking after you here there was a
blessing. The Blessing was manakamana sobre como la mala Rahim sobre la chef nine who's also in Oxford who was there at the time, you know, may Allah bless him as well he's he's in Oxford right now. He all these teachers when Abu Hassan Rahim Allah later on, all of them stayed on site. So Mala Mala, he had his own room. And his room was on the east wing block upstairs. That fire this room was his was his room. A beautiful small room, I would say his room was probably you know, it's very small room talking probably about, you know, six foot by six foot seminar. Not more than that six foot by six foot was his room. And he had in a corner he had his mattress, right on one corner of he
had his mattress as soon as you walked in the room on the left hand side of the mattress, on the far side was his microwave oven. And on this side was all his books. And he had a window there and a muzzle on the ground. And that's it. Okay, a very simple sort of now because the stars were all on site, we had the opportunity to go and meet them and spend time with them. This was the brilliance of this, because not many mothers you will find that all your stats all almost all your stats are living on site. So you can go to them go to this teacher go to that teacher you can benefit from them.
And this is where I got to benefit from Mr. g rahimullah because I came to Nottingham and you know, I was I just came straight from newsmedia tharaka numerous I'm coming in. I'm just going to study a few years blah blah, finish my course. And then somebody
told me that said you know amongst the amongst the teachers we've got a value of a law
now you know if you've heard of a value of a law you would know what the value of allies and some of you again I'm saying this for the for the sake of the camera because this is gonna go worldwide yeah some people you know they find this very dodgy Brava Yeah, very dodgy Yeah, now yes there are many DGP subs Don't get me wrong. Yeah, there are many dodgy purists out there are many dodgy people who are faking it out there Yes, yes, yes, there are people who will rip you for your money there are people who just want to take something out of your pocket there are people who will try and get the name and fame but you know what? If you have not met someone like to study Rahim Allah you will not
know what a true will is.
If you if you have not because I really didn't know where I landed on this. I didn't know because I came to the Messiah. What happened? They said there's a What do you have a lot now all our lives you know, most people what they think of is beautiful. That means that you know if there's a worldly you're someone who's like as what well, he is someone who's very close to a Lazarus and that's what it means. Okay? So if someone's close to Allah azza wa jal, you know, you've got all these stories that go around, oh my god, they've got a turban this big, they've got a stick that big, you know, they're gonna, they're gonna frown on their face. And, you know, all they do all day is, you know,
the saying a few words and everyone's scared of them. And again, you know, it gets all this superstitious stuff out of none. And that's not that's not what it is. Please erase everything you know about this whole pod system and everything. Listen to who Mueller further himself was, and then open the doors of understanding who accrue value of Allah is. Okay, because I didn't know any of this. I knew when I was young, there's something called peerzada. And after that finished, you know, I came I came here. So when I came to Nottingham, I had this the value of Allah hatha, okay, let me go meet him. So is my first of all, it was your Salah. I said, after Salah. I said to the to the
colleagues, I said to them, as it was one of them.
They said he was just here.
So anyway, I said, Okay, I'll wait for because he's gone to his room, I'm not going to go to his room disturb him. So I came all the way back, you know, played around whatever it was. And then, as of time came, I saw time I prayed everything. And I'm waiting ways wonderful learning software. I'm all like, wait, wait, you know what? Easy? So I'm excited. I'm waiting outside and everyone sort of gone. And I said to colleagues, I said, Where's Monaco? Louisa? They said he just went by. I said, Who man who? You know, because I'm expecting, you know, you're going to say I'm expecting a big
I'm expecting some gigantic was I'm expecting someone who when he walks, everyone just stands by you know, I'm expecting all these things. Because that's what you get used to in a when a big period or when somebody over love someone comes by? That's what you normally see. And they said, Did you see him? I said no. They said this, that there was a person gentleman who had, you know, who had a nice
sort of overcoat, right half coats that he was wearing. And he had white beard. I said, I saw a gentleman white beard. Okay, fine. I'll catch him up with time. All right. So Mark live came and I'm looking for an individual with white beard and, and suddenly had an eye my eyes fell on him. Okay, after modeling. And when I met him, I thought, What is this who they're talking about? Because if you met yesterday, he was one of the simplest people you could you could find. He was like your most ordinary person. He did not have any who had to him. None of this like he's gonna have 20 people behind him walking on the entourage. None of that. He was approachable by anyone. You saw your local
muscle in the masjid. That's how wonderful the sub look like. Okay, so how do you look like I mean, you guys know, but for the sake of the audience, okay. By the way, how many of you have never met to study Put your hands up?
How many of you didn't meet him? Put your hands up? Okay, there's a few people who have never met him. So I'll explain to you. He wasn't too tall. I'd say about five foot six or something five foot 556 that's how cool he was. which is which is good average height. He had a very nice white complexion. He was from surat from Pakistan from NWfP of Pakistan. And the people from that region they have very fair skin and some of them have very bright eyes as well on one of the rooms are rahimullah he had lovely gray eyes. Okay. And he had he had about a six I think lines on his forehead. Okay. He had a nice broad forehead with about good five, six lines going across the which
is really a sign of a thinker. Now you might say to me, Well, where do I know this from? I actually learned this from Allah, because he actually went through you know, the things he taught me I'd never learned from anybody else. He went through with me at one point, he went through all the human features is that someone has a nose like this. It means they're like this. Someone has teeth like this. It means that that someone has a neck right is that like someone like me? someone walks like this is like this.
And he was
I mean, this this stuff is how many of you in here in Pitt street had the opportunity of hearing that from him? Put your hands up?
I have close one to one Alhambra. I didn't know when I landed on this day. I didn't know the amount I took off him in these four years, I would say, and I'm very, very fortunate what many of you sitting here haven't been able to do that while staying with him in order. Because what happened is I got him trapped. A lot trapped him in the building and Nottingham he couldn't go anywhere else. Right. And Allah put me in a building, there's no there's nothing, there's no Town Center nearby to go to. So I was trapped. He was trapped. And ally made the opportunity for me to spend time with him. So he was a lovely and I had a lovely nose with it with a round sort of end at the end, but he
had a wedge wedge in his nose. I've never seen anyone like that after him, but a lovely wedge on his nose. And he had a beard, I'd say about like mine at this moment. And it was all sort of white, he kept himself very well. Okay, is very neat and tidy. You always presented himself very nicely. And he had the kind of hat used to love wearing is the hat that you would find in the in the north west of sort of Pakistan kind of region, which is, which is a woolly sort of type type of hat with the with the part flat at the top. And he's still a lot of the times he used to he used to wear the Kuta the commies and so on, up to his knees below his knees, and he would wear a half coat a lot of the
times. And he he was you know, used when he used to some handle allows him when he used to smile, or when he's to be when he needs to meet people. He used to really chew you up. Now the one thing about him, I have to say Subhanallah love him was that this? Some of the things Allah gave him. I never even realized this. But later on, I found out that not I've only met one more person with this quality. Nobody, nobody else in the world. And some of the qualities are lucky to study. I haven't met in all my travels, except for one other person. That's my chef in Bangladesh, Mufti Rashid Rahman. What's that quality? I'm talking about, you know, the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alaihe
salam that Rasulullah sallallahu Hardison used to be loved by everybody.
You know, you hear like a Buddha says Oh, he's the closest to this person. I will work with the law says he's the closest Amara de la on Phil's is the closest to him. What are the allowed feels is the closest to him, you know, say that I Jumeirah della feels he's close to everyone has got a story of how they're close to Rasulullah sallallahu. Everyone thinks that was Allison Allison likes them uniquely some way that he doesn't like somebody else. He loves everybody loves everybody. But he loves someone specially that he doesn't give that special up to anybody else. So for example, he was the closest and the most special to him in some special way. We all had our stories. When we got
together in the DOMA. We used to talk to each other. We used to have stories like one of the rooms have did this for me. And somebody else
did that for me. Somebody else was one of them did this when everyone had a special love from study ramela special love now that he is a student of the province of alarmism, you will not find you will not find in many people in the world. I've only met another one person, I've only met another one person in my life. I'm telling you that my dad and my chef, Mr. Rashid Rockman farrokh in Bangladesh with this quality that all the people around them have got stories that close to him. Let me tell you another one, the son of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam that when you meet him,
he makes you feel very positive and makes you feel happy and cheerful, no matter what is going in, in the in the life of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam that was the son of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And if you met who studied rahimullah, doesn't matter who you were, doesn't matter where you're from, doesn't matter what bad day monona is having when you met him, he made you feel nice. He made you feel nice. And he not only made you feel nice, this was the normal thing for four years, every single day when I used to go meet him. This was the normal case. So I'd go to his room and knock on his door.
And he would say straightaway, he would say come in.
Okay, so you walk inside, monitoring rahimullah. This is a shekel Hadith. He's teaching Hades of Buhari and Timothy in that same building. He's one of the top teachers of the place. His knowledge is like an ocean. His way of you know, his character is something that everybody would love. And this is, um, he's he's 70 years old. And this is what he does to me as a young individual. I was 18 years old. When I joined his Hitman. I was 18 years old. When I would come to him, he would get up from him.
Place in the room, he would stand up come to the door. When opening the door, he would he would allow me to come inside and he would greet me and he would embrace me. And when he would embrace the first is his cheerful face, he would like to have his whole face when I was to come to him. And I'm saying every day for four years knows no, no difference. Okay? I can hear that. He will say first thing was say he would say, as I say, we say who say Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatu. And then sometimes you say, Well, my fear to some of you who know who say, Well, my fear to me. And that's also in a narration as well to say, well mark, I will give you His forgiveness as well. So
when he would say that he would, he would grab a hold of me and his husband, and while I'm here on this level, this was the phrase he made for me. Every person in the mother had, almost every person who's close to him had a different phrase different way you would approach them. So my one was Hassan wala mula mithila Hola, nanny hussen. The one that too I know two eyes have ever seen the likes of this was a phrase from a poem, somewhere, some poem, he used to say that poem every time he used to meet me, his face, very cheerful, his his teeth are beaming with delight. I'm seeing me and then he would grab hold of me and then he would give me a good squeeze, tight, tight squeeze. And
then he would do this. He would not let go of me until he gave me four glass. And every time he will try and change his different drawers when he when he met me. Okay, so now he's holding on to me, he might is Hold on to me, is squeezing me tight. At the same time. He's saying, May Allah give my husband in my knowledge? May Allah give my husband good practice. May Allah make him to shine over the world. May Allah make him a great person. And after he would give me for two hours, then he would release me. And he would he wouldn't say better. I sit down, right? If you wanted to get up to 900 please, I want to I want to sort of go and I want to get something with Nana. He was a better
sit down. So I sit down what he would do, he would not speak to me nicely. Now with all the lovely as as he's moving around the room. six foot six foot by six foot room, not too big is moving around the room and he's trying to get tea ready. So he's got a whole tea place there. He makes tea warms it up in the microwave. He's making two cups as he's making the two cups is still talking to me. Whereas on Casey, who hasn't? How are you? Better? Hudson? harirchi Mahajan, are you okay? When as Muslim but I will say that the the weather is very good. And he would you speak speak speak, keep me entertained as he's making two cups of tea. He would not allow me to get up and touch the cups of
tea. He would make them 70 year old man, he makes two cups of tea. He lays the hand or the little mat in front of me, equals one cup in front of me. He puts one cup in front of himself. He sits down. And then as he takes a cup of tea to his mouth, he says a bottle made a PR he has an app key he can sit down. Now tell me my beloved husband. What service can I be of you? Now you feel us right? feel okay, this is a man rahamallah doing it one day, this was not one day. This was almost every time I would go and see him. This was his way of greeting me. So I would sit and I would say to him, I would say one I've got to two questions. Those who are you said Dhoni the spiritual.
Don't ask me two questions, asked me 10. Now when I say he says to me, asked me 10 I'm not making this up. I've never met a start in my life. I've had several I probably had about 4050 to start by the time from beginning to the end, I probably had about 4050 teachers that have taught me different lessons different places, okay. I've never met in my life, a person who was so open for you to ask questions. And not only that, you could ask the silliest question ever on the earth and he was still smiling, give you an answer. He never made you feel like you know what kind of what kind of question was never never. You know how many questions I ended up going to him it. I had an a4 pad lined a4
pad. And during 24 hours, I started to think about my questions. And you know what I said to you, when I introduce Bri, I erased my knowledge that my mother and my father have started before gave to me because I didn't know what was right and what was wrong. Okay, some of the things they told me Alhambra was billion. But some of the things they told me was not to think so inducibly I raised in I got it all right. And then when I met one of the things are Amala when I saw his level of knowledge, I put everything so my mother's knowledge, my dad's knowledge. mousetalgia is my whole of dues before his knowledge, everything they taught me all together. And I started to take you through
the process of one of the things of knowledge and I started to erase and chop and chop, chop and cherry whatever
I could write, and the thing was that a full pad. I don't know how many pads I finished. Every day in 24 hours, I would write as many questions I could think of. I could even remember to today I've got some some of these are home 28 questions on one side of a4 paper 28 questions, I would write them all down 24 hours. My time is again, they're four o'clock when all the kids used to go and play. This was this was the fortunate Lazarus who gave me the other children used to love playing football. And they still love roaming around playing the acres of land and all that I wasn't into football. Even till today. I'm not into football. And I say Alhamdulillah Yeah, I'll have the life
you like football Alhamdulillah if you don't like it, like me 100 law case unless they have a war about it. So what happened is, they used to play football, and they used to play other games, cricket, sometimes other things. And I used to just go to study. And I spend the full two hours from four o'clock to six o'clock full, taking every benefit I could from him. And those questions of the whole a4 paper. I used to go and sit with him. And I say hazard I said I got some questions or puchong asked me more, asked me more asked me a whole two hours gone every other day every day if I could unless a madman can sometimes have guests came. When the guests came then I stopped and he
gave the time to the guest when the guests went and carried on. We carried on talking. And you know what? He gave me time like no other student in the motherson. And it is not my words. He said himself.
By the end of the four years, the third year and the fourth year he said to me, said Hudson, he said I've given you more time than anybody else.
But he said to me there's a there's a price to pay. Okay hazaragi Mashallah. Never in his life ever asked for money.
I knew him for how long he passed away in 2015 Rahim Allah, I met him in 1993. So this is 22 years I knew him in 22 years, not one day ever he asked me for something that's a value of Allah.
That's a real valuable all those people listen to this. If you want to go back and check your parasites and everything else. You want to go and see what this individual was rahimullah because this was the son of the blossom. Have you ever seen in any Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is asking Sahaba give me this. Have you ever read a hadith like that? No. If he ever took something he borrowed it in the whole of the sooner the Prophet Allah if he needed money, the prophets of Allah needed money. He borrowed something sometimes he borrowed from Jewish people, but he gave it back every penny he owed to someone before his death. He paid it all back
salallahu alayhi wasallam no way in any Hadith, you will find that he taught the Sahaba he did favors for the Sahaba and he expected the Sahaba to do something for the nav bar and this Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in all the Aurelia of a lie in the world I know there are many plenty of wonderful Alia across the world. I'm not putting anybody down. But to meet someone like this 22 years I knew him never ever asked me for a penny never asked me for a service. The only thing he asked me was this. Four years he gave me and he kept on saying this throughout the end of his fourth year. Is that a hassle? I've given you a lot of time more than anyone else. Man I've got both work
there. And then he said this, he said easily Dr. Mehra Hasson came to me he worked CUDA alum Cadena. hoga he said, because you're going to have to one day give it to the whole of the world are some things he said I never understood. I really never understood what he was actually saying. But today I understand. He said to me again and again, he said, Hasson I've given you so much time, but they're gonna be there's going to be a time and a lot of people will come to you.
The bolo gaggia to kisi ko Rodney Karna don't turn anyone away.
This is his Basia, his his thing will to me. Don't tell anyone. He said if people come to you for help, you have to help them just like I helped you. And he said, you will find a lot of people that will come to you.
And I didn't understand like today. I go all over the world. And I and I lecture but I never knew what he was talking about that. In fact, when he passed away rahimullah, I've got about 25 letters 20 to 25 letters or home or personal letters from him, he sent to me and about 25 letters are sent to him. This was after I finished the four years and I traveled on to Bangladesh and even when I become a man I used to write g men used to write back to me because those days there was no mobile phones or anything. So we have this beautiful way of writing a letter to him. He's right back to me.
And after his death, Rahim Allah I opened these letters, one by one and honestly I was crying. I was crying. Just listen, just just reading these letters.
The way and he had beautiful handwriting. Those of you who know him had wonderful handwriting. And in that I found certain things. So how long was said to you one thing.
He said in those letters I never understood in 1997. He wrote this. This is 20 years ago from today.
He said to me, hasn't you're going to go through this phase in your life later on. And I never opened that letter for 20 years. I opened it again, after 20 years, a first time I opened in 1997. I never understood what he was writing to me. But in 2015, I understood what he meant. He said, you're going to go through this phase in your life. And he said, Don't worry about things. You're going to have these people on whatever after saying this. He said, don't worry about that. He said, and he wrote in his letter, he said, Mooji 18 hair.
He said Allah tala is that I have full conviction from Allah azza wa jal that he will he said through he said, his knowledge, I'm not I'm not beating myself up here. Honestly, I'm only saying this out of the name of Allah azza wa jal, and I'm sure there are many of you students who are spreading knowledge across the world. But he said this to me, and he said this while he was alive in the mother's side, he said this later on. And in that letter, he said, also, he said through me, there's going to be said, my knowledge will spread through you.
If you have heard my bionz most of what I say is from all of us.
So if you ever wonder, Well, how do I speak like that? And how the kind of stuff that I say in my bands, most of the stuff that I say in my bands is from monopolies or because I spend foreclosures every day, I was in his room, and I was just listening to him. And I was question after question after question. And he never said no to a single question. Once I saw this dream in year 2001, I so he gave me seven bottles of out of seven bottles of perfume he gave to me, and he had it on a shelf. And he offered it to me and he said, This is yours he gave to one by one. And I took it from him. And then I woke up with an iPhone. And so this was another part of him. So vandalia, his dream,
dream interpretation. Those of you who've gone to him for dream interpretation, he was spot on. Okay. So he said to me, this was in 2001. By this time, I hadn't even got traveled the world to do my talk. He said through me, he said, my knowledge will stretch through you and it will go across the world. And he said one thing, when when I was in in Notting with him, and I kept on saying, I said, Please make dua, he said to me, Sarah made a lot of draft for you. I've given you a lot of draft, but he said one condition you need to have some, he said you need to be humble.
He said the more humble you become, the more Allah will lift you up. And this was one thing that Mala Mala, mala had, he was very, very, very, extremely humble. To the extent he said this to me.
I was with him in room and he said to me, sir Hasson he said agar up is what kolam have she viaggia is that if right now, if an Ethiopian slave who is you know, has no regard in the world, he's a slave is Ethiopian. He's comes walked in this door right now. And he takes hold of me, puts me on the ground. And he puts his soul of his foot on my neck, and he stomps on me on the ground, he said me Illuminae is that I will not even move.
He said, if he keeps me like this for two hours on the ground, he said, I will not say anything to him. And why he was saying this to me was to make me understand the level of Heraldo or humbleness that not only he had, but he was trying to pass on to me. And he kept on saying to me again and again, he said, the more humble you will become, the more Allah will lift you and he said this is a secret of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam which is manteau Allah Allah, Allah, who serve is humble for the sake of Allah, Allah azza wa jal lifted. Now, one of the reasons what I said to you was that I'm going to him every single day and I'm asked him question, the more I asked him,
the more I asked him, the more happy he becomes, you know how happy he became. He started to mention to the other teachers, he said that I'm so happy that Hasson is coming to me and asking me questions. And you don't get this normally, I'm telling you, when you're going to ask somebody 28 questions a day. They'll be like, Oh, he's here again. Let me go. He know he's coming again. When I used to wait for me, I when I came, he used to be so happy to you know, hug me again, make me sit down and used to answer the question. Now, you know, when I say I asked the questions, you know, what kind of questions you're thinking Silvana law. These are all religious question. No, no, no,
no, no. You ask religious questions, worldly questions, you ask questions of the ocean, questions of the land. You ask questions of the seen and the unseen. You ask questions of humans of genes. You ask questions of planet Earth and stuff.
face and Skype, everything you will answer to the extent that sometimes I'm saying that I'll just break it up to you. These are other some young kids.
I could remember having with Madonna, two to three hours a time a session on what a man should do on his first night when he gets married.
You guys understand that you're like,
I don't know how many of you in Oldham are able to, like, have the handle of it, you know, I had, I'm gonna repeat it for you. Right down to the private things of a man and the wife. Everything was analyzed telling me full,
top bottom in out everything. I can't go further because the young kids Yeah, you guys, you guys, do you understand or not? Everything Amala would say you do and even the treatment of how one should treat their wife and what they should do what they should not do everything you open up, and he's a treasure. He'll bring it out to the extent of space. I mean, swala we don't have space. Seriously. We don't have planets. We don't have our summary that it gurus we're talking about the iOS boom, he's talking about which plan is married. And he'll tell you, he's and half the times on last. Wow. He's talking about planets to talk of which planet is where he's talking about the moon and the
cycle of the moon is talking about how they you know, and what times is really good when Allah azza wa jal does certain things to the weather and what time then he'll move on to things like do our times and what nights are special and you know, you're sitting there, you're just listening or half the things are probably not going in my head because they're above me. But you know, you talk about maths, he'll give you a good lesson on maths. Seriously, you might think I don't know how many of you know them I've ever got you is something that will baffled and they baffled me I couldn't even do some of the sums, you're talking about that poetry, poetry, you go on and on and on. hours
talking about poetry this formed upon In fact, he told me once he was you know, he had many, many parts in his life when he used to teach different, different individuals. And once he was in a school in Pakistan, he used to go with the cycle he told me is to go to the school. And he said to me, he said, in that school, there was a library of a good few 100 books. Library don't know when in school, you have a library. You know, Mona did, Manjula read every single book in the library.
molar read every single book in the library, he told me this and that's how he had a wealth of information. If he found something he would read it and most people wouldn't even know that there's there's this how mine You know, inside of the deeper you dig, the more you find, forgot the seed. He will tell you how he will tell you to affect he'll tell you talk about normal life will tell you sociology, it'll tell you psychology, he'll tell you. He was a he was a very good. He was a very good Hakim. Those of you who know, he used to deal with some leaves, Herbes and medicines. That's what a Hakeem is. And he would give people treatment through the Hub's. Not only that, but he was
wonderful in psychology. I'm not talking about a psychology degree here. All I'm saying is enough see yet is to call an element of see at the knowledge of a person's psyche, he would be able to tell her all he needed to do is this. I don't know if you've ever seen him do this. You will take the patient you put his thumb onto his onto the patient's V
is pretty Sunday. And he just just take the heartbeat for a little while. And then he will tell the person what's wrong with the liver. What's wrong with the heart or the stomach or something else or brain whatever you say later. Alligator knowledge How many of you know the new that Put your hands up? Okay, few Mashallah. How many of you knew that he used to see jeans walking in the day? He hands up a few. Mashallah, good. Right? When he came first to Nottingham, he didn't realize that he's given this information out. Right. And the children when they heard it, you know, everyone was like, Whoa, what was that? It was one of the reasons I came in and he started to make, he just made a
statement. He said, Oh, I can see some jeans walking around here. He just made a statement. He didn't realize that these are children and they were gonna be coming for good stories later on. Right? He never knew that. So he just said it bled out. And then after they had to stop, he said he's so Christian jeans walking, a lot of the questions and he even said the monks they were coming in the months they were not coming in. He said that he said that the month of suffering in the Arabic second month of the of the year. He said that's the month they used to come. And he would even explain that they came with the whole caravan and they would stay in another part of the wing
of the whole of the Mombasa and he even saw the kids he would display told me personally said they've got to come with a little kid and so on. And that kid sometimes comes on this side to our children on this side. You would expect this but you don't wanna he would not open up to anybody about this stuff. He will not open up when he realized that children are talking about this. He stopped he completely stopped. He never gave anything out. But those who got close to Montana then
He would open up it took me nine months to open him.
Because the first nine months I was asking questions after questions because he's given the answers, but he's not opening his insight to me. He had a wealth of information one of the greatest things he had was the rasa. mana Father Himself Rahim Allah you study Rahim Allah when he's just so you he knew. He knew he could read your mind put it this way he read your mind straight when he just saw you he read your mind.
When students found this out, some students were scared to even look him in the eye.
I'm not making this up. Because this is what we would do. Okay, imagine this Okay, for the time comes. I wonder what was going on. I've been all night. Doesn't matter what time monana goes goes to sleep. He's up two o'clock bang on without an alarm clock. Two o'clock by that dot you can stand in the corridor. One I would open his door and he will come down the corridor he will do His will do uses miswak he will use the toilet the use massage do will do and go straight to his room. And then he will start
from two o'clock to fudger. He's doing tahajjud Vicar of Allah. And he's just making dua to Allah for three hours non stop. Okay, so I'll tell you a bit about that a bit more later on. But molana would come from straight from his his room near father time, he would come over to the masjid area, we had a hole there, we made it our messy area and he would be sit in the front line. So he's got his back towards everybody. He does not see who comes in the masjid. When the karma starts, he prays with everyone when he's finished, he makes dry with everyone and whatnot turns down like everyone else and he just goes straight towards his room. He has not turned around. Now most people who would
have left or something or half the people have left he don't know how he doesn't know how many people have actually come on not come on, I goes to his room ramola. Then he comes down at about 745 this is about 15 minutes before the lesson is starting at eight o'clock, sometimes 15 minutes before sometimes 10 minutes away standing in the corridor, and he stands there and it just Salaam to the students. Okay. As soon as they come to cinema, the students are getting ready now they've had the breakfast, get ready now. And as a student says Salaam to him, those of them that prayed fudger he would say Salaam and find the gold. Those of them that didn't pray for God was hold the hand pull
him to himself whispered in the ear, go and pray for them.
Now you telling me that this person has got some register, no register, no way of knowing this. And any student that has missed his father in the morning, he knew you come across monana he will whisper in your ear and nobody else knew this. He will say jacker further or
you say in a nice way you will not embarrass you. He was in a jacket, Cordillera
calm, pray God and pray. And and the thing was, he would never get this wrong in four years. I know I wish he wouldn't do this every day obviously. But whenever he could, he would tell someone now when he when he got into the lesson. Sometimes he went off on a tangent in the lesson. And he would say things you know, off the tongue and you say nice, wonderful stuff like a buyer and he started after the lesson. Somebody there in one of your colleagues will say yeah, La Jolla that was all about me.
After he's gone out, one of the sins Yella, he talked about me today. Sometimes they wouldn't say anything. Sometimes the student would die in shame. Later on, the student will go straight to his room and say have you talked about me in the lesson? Right. And while I will say now what do you mean I talked about you in the lesson? What do you mean I talk to my lesson? One law whatever you said the lesson it was directed to me then I would say Look, do your tober your Toba repent to Allah azza wa jal. Now, this is not common that Allah azzawajal gives this kind of ferocity to anyone, and he wouldn't open up like he would never embarrass anyone when he had to tell you that you've done
something wrong. You wouldn't have imagined. In fact, when I would come from the holidays, if I did good at this look, imagine right I've spent seven days I've gone from Nottingham to Walsall. I've spent seven days monana was not there. After seven days a comeback.
first meeting with hazard go straight in his room and Salama like maybe I bought something he used to love. He used to love the Bumble isn't the madrasa. He said they used to love fish, and he's still a fish as well. And he used to love that moment when Bongo used to come and you know, bring fish and other things for him. Alhamdulillah Mashallah, if you never bought it for him, don't worry, you wouldn't get a telling of okay. So, bring him something from home, give him the fish that he likes. And then we'll come into his room. When he would meet me if I did something good in the holidays he did this is after I get close to him. He would not do this with all the students. If I
if I did something good in the holidays, he would comment on it. And if I did something bad in the holidays, he would comment on it. straightaway, straightaway, you just come in as gathering straightaway. Once I remember Subhanallah this act I'm just telling you this. I'm not in the actual
Doing this right now but I could ask them to bahala how Allah has given one of my philosophies and philosophies when you know the inner inner part of a person I like just gives you this quality you can just read it you can just read inside people's hearts
once I remember no holidays, I just you know, I started to get a 400 and I started to read some long rockets because I you know, I wanted to read certain Jews whatever in the rockets and I'm only telling you this because one law he commented on the way he commented on Ya Allah what feras Allah give him Allah.
I came when I met him and he's and he's turned around to me and he said, after a few days he said, You know, he said you know that Salah that you started in the holiday time
he said, You know that Salah that you started the holiday time you're not doing it now. Allah azza wa jal used to love that very much
as like nobody knew of this low one not one human being would not even my dad knew about this
and then he would add on you say us you'd even comment on how to get his shoe inside the Salah. And he would tell me is that a hassle when you get into your into your studio, try and think like this and he gave me in every part of Salah something to think about to gain my horseshoe in Salah. Now this is not I'm going to get into the horseshoe and again can get into the actual praise of nothing about this year I went to Montana and I got every single part of my my Salah part done through Milan again.
What I mean by this is that I went to his room and he taught me the full Salah again, I'm 18 years old, and I've been praying all my life like from from 12 I've been praying that's fine. But when he when I went to when I actually asked not that he wanted to do this to me No.
I said Mona I want to I want to go through everything with you. Tell me teach me how to pray sir and he was so happy. So happy. He commented on to other stuff, that Hasson has actually come to me to learn his salah and I'm going to tell you this, right? I'm gonna tell you this. I'm not gonna make you do it. He made me do every single part of it. And he perfected it with me. Right? So want to turn your camera, I don't know which way Okay, so he would I'm gonna tell you simply Okay, he said first your feet, both of them should be facing the table straight. Some people have them like this outwards is wrong. Because in the Hadith, it said Your feet should be towards the Qibla straight,
there should be a slight gap between the between your feet, then he will say that when you raise your hands, you raise your hands like this. And he showed me exactly like this, where you have your hands directly towards the table or these fingers are together, these thumbs are loose, and they are to the level of the ear lobes. And he made me practice again and again. Some of you are gonna say, Oh, yeah, that's so easy. Now you do you'll be doing this.
And some people will do this. And all sorts of things. Okay, it takes a lot of time way, this way. And all fingers straight fingers join together, these thumbs loose, okay, and you have it then when you try your hands, you try it like a little watch around where you where you put the thumb here, the little finger goes down there, three fingers straight there, put it where your belly button is just below the belly button, and then He will teach me every part. He told me something again, crucial.
He said when you stand when you stand, think about malakian within which is you're going back to Allah azza wa jal on the Day of Judgment. And you're standing there right now. When you look down to your suju place, that's your cupboard. That's your grave.
So that's where you stand. And then He will teach me to pray slowly. I want even to recall, he told me a number of combinations. And most people get this wrong to do the record properly. And I had to practice this with him quite a bit to get it right. Number one, he said when you go down ruku your palms have to be on your kneecaps. Okay, kneecaps. Number two, he said, your fingers have to be spread. That's fine. Number three, he said, he said lock your legs. Number four, he said lock your arms. Number five. And this is the most difficult part. I'm going to turn around a bit to show you this. You put your palms on your on your kneecaps, you put your hands wept, you've locked your arms,
you've locked your legs, and most people don't do this. Watch this. You have to go. Can you see that now? Yeah. So if you don't move forward, I was normally here, okay, if you don't move forward, and you know, your heels, the muscles there. If you don't make yourself go forward like that, and that's the sooner the ribs are the last thing that you won't get a straight back and then the last one is your head. It shouldn't be tilted down. It shouldn't be tilted up. It should be just straight. And when you have that, you know Maulana he used to stay in this ruku for 20 minutes ago in tahajjud.
I'm there with him and my knees are shaking.
So I went and joined him in tahajud I really, I really begged him and I and I got that But anyway, this is Roku
This is the sooner we have to lose some people think to get the straight back you have to bend your legs, he said was wrong, you have to lock your leg straight, but you have to move yourself forward. And that that muscle at the calf muscles stretch slightly but that's that's when you get the full black straight. Okay? And then he says semula hamidah. He said this, the hands have to be to the side or when you go down, you had a wonderful way he told me to going down. When you go down, he said the back has to remain straight. Now this takes a lot of practice, look when I go down, look, knees bend, back is straight, back is straight back and straight. Now where my hands gonna be. He
said the hands have to slowly slowly move in towards the kneecaps and towards the end of the thighs as you come down. Okay, I see my back hasn't been at all and then he said the knees down first. Okay, then your hands down when your hands and sudo is the position, locked fingers straight towards the Qibla two thumbs out, nose goes between these two thumbs here. Okay, and the forehead here. So he said you make an arch with these two thumbs and the nose goes right in between the two. And that's how you're going to salute with your obviously your your elbows up and your feet on the ground. Again, the toes have to be facing the Qibla a lot of practice has to be done for this
because when you come back up from the from the studio, when you come back up, you have to come back up. The sooner is you come back up and you have to come back up with a straight back. Right, straight back going down and straight back going up all your thigh muscles are going to be really locked in to try and get that most people just go straight in like that Roku and all the other in our business that they have going Roku and into here physician you're sitting down and what molana used to do, I don't know if you realize when molana used to sit into here I have never been able to do that. I've never met anyone else been able to do that he used to not only put his right foot up
with his toes towards the Qibla he's to bend his left foot toes towards the Qibla as well he had both of the toes, both feet toes towards the Qibla Have any of you ever seen that? One I used to do that he had both of them towards that and the thing about monitoring his Salah was he did not use to move
that's another son of the purpose of the lesson when he used to be engaged in his Salah he used to be engaged in salah and he had a wonderful horseshoe a wonderful way of now. Let me tell you this he said to me, okay, when you stand you look at the you're looking at your grave when you're in your ruku he said look at your look down and he said think when Malakal mode will come it will take you first from the feet. Okay, he said when you go into sujood look at the end of your nose. Okay because when you go in your grave, the first thing that's going to deteriorate is going to be your nose.
And when you sit into here in front of Allah azza wa jal then think you just throughout the Salah, he said this whole Salah is about showing that you are no one in front of Allah. You will no one in front of Allah Now, again and again who shall he is to have lessons in the you know what he was what he used to tell me. And Maulana Rahim Allah in asking him these questions, he had no limits whatsoever of what he would he would he would expect from me what he would expect by now there's a couple of minutes left for the other one. I'll give you time for the last 14 Salah so we got about three minutes left. Let me tell you one other part of one of them then you can have a break and
Caleb McLaughlin will have to carry enough motives. I've got a lot to tell you. I've only just started I can't I don't know how long I'll be able to get it all in what I'll be able to get in before I shot but I will try my best to get whatever I can in. So what happens is this this I just want you to listen to this. This part of the story and then and then we'll have the Adana mother.
Your mother is not going to give the ads until I finish Ramona. Your mother's Okay, tell him please. Yeah, I don't want to have an in between or the egg donate Jose Kobani. No. Okay.
One night I was in the madrasa and I woke up in the nighttime
at two o'clock. Okay, so this is just as I think by the standards over 60 students in the whole madrasa.
I woke up in the night, I'm in a room with six other students. We were all sleeping in there. Two o'clock I woke up and it was all dark. There's only a bit of light that was coming in from the lamp that was outside of the room because there's some street lamps not they couldn't call the street lamps, the lamps within the compound there and some of the lights used to come inside the building. Yellow which kind of you know amber kind of light that used to come in. So woke up at two o'clock in the night.
And I heard
Isla De La ilaha illAllah in LA and this is not one person saying this this way.
A whole group group of so many things, and I just woke up and I'm thinking, no one in the room is saying it. No one in the building is saying it. I can hear this coming from outside of the of the room or outside the window. So what I did is I slowly put my head up, and I looked through the window and I did not see a single person.
The whole place had leaves. It had the wind blowing gently. I could see through all the way to the courts of the tennis courts. I could see all the way across to Montana's room on the corner. But nobody was on but I'm hearing a la ilaha illAllah La ilaha illAllah La ilaha illAllah good to three minutes I heard it. I looked through the window that I went back to my place again and I slept. And the next day further time because I used to go serve manana breakfast or fajita does another time I used to go to him as well. So went to him further time and I served him the breakfast. And I said Manasa Something strange is there. I said I couldn't see anyone needing the building nor outside the
building. I looked all around. But I said I heard this Vicar yesterday. So I said tomorrow I said, I said I heard this La Ilaha Illa. After further when I served him. And Mona said to me, he said he said Oh, he said so. So you heard that
as a model. I said what was it? What did I say? There's no one there? He said to me, don't worry, you won't hear it again.
I said to mala Please tell me Was it and I want to know what did I hear was it was it? I don't know what it was? I couldn't see anyone. He said don't worry, you won't you won't hear it again. I never understood this. But when he passed away, Rahim Allah I related this to my share in Bangladesh, moved to Russia, Iran, Iraq, I moved this upset to me, my chef said to me said Ah, I said Allah. He said, that means he used to teach gins how to do Vicodin the night.
That was a whole group of dudes. I never realized at that time, it was a whole group of gyms outside all coming from his room outside, they were all gathered together in the night. And molana is giving them taleem and he's given them instructions of Vicar. In fact, I'm going to tell you stories about him teaching gins after the Magnum Salah I want you to I want you to stay soon as I come back and I'm gonna tell you how he used to tilty jeans in specifically One to One is to T jeans inshallah. So let's have the muffler break man shall I will carry on after Giacomo Hello Santa Monica.
Armando hemella hamdulillah horrible. alaminos salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa.
I told you about Hollerith and
he had, he had not only was his talim and his instruction coming to the human beings but also to jinns.
And Allah gave this very special quality to him. And I'm not making this up. And he used to, he used to teach jeans, even here on Pitt Street.
Pitt street here in cities and you might be smiling or anything how his son is here right in front of me. Amanda Lee, I've had a conversation with him. And he says, This is his son, Amal is right in front of me now. So many times, he one o'clock in the night. You know, there's somebody in the house that is talking to study, and study a lot of lot of guests that used to come to him. And now guests used to be refused. If somebody came to him, they came to him he would serve whoever he could.
And I just want to say on that note, as well, again, his son Mohammed Ali narrated this to me
that once there was a few guests coming to see them about three different guests come to see them. And there was more than in the house that he was in the house. In fact, you know, things are coming my head. Let me just tell you another story, then I'll trade this one and the other one, right. He said he wants he went to dinner. And the person in the house they said he was human, another man another morana that went to their to the house. And when they went they were surprised because the woman bought the food.
The woman bought the food to them. So she bought the food to them the roti, everything else and they ate and after they finished eating, and the woman just bought it and she went away. Okay, so after they finished eating and one and I said to start the study said another woman who said she had one eye that was slightly out of place. And monana for himself who study rahimullah he said, he said I never looked at the woman.
He said I never even looked at the woman. I never even raised my eyes. Look at the woman how obviously he was gonna feel embarrassed. But manana told me this story. Why? Because he said he doesn't even look. He won't even look the full time however many times the woman came serve the food went he didn't even raise his head from the ground to look at a while even the other monana might have gone even among other ones. I'm not saying he looked awkwardly
Once and he saw that he made the Commonwealth study rahimullah said he said I never looked to see how eyes face. I didn't even look. Now this other story I'm telling you of his own house in p3. There's a couple of people coming. And his son is in the house, one of the services in the house and there's hardly any food.
Nothing's cooked and they're coming right now. They come within minutes. So one of the things that we turned on to his son he said, he said quickly, we need to save them some food. So Ahmed said he said Dad, there's no food.
He said there must be food. He said there's hardly any food. So what is the he said there's a bit of chicken, little bit of chicken. And he said there's only a couple literally two or three rotors, that's it. And they're coming right now. One of the things I said was he said put the put the pot on the on the cooker and said don't lift the lid up.
Don't lift the lid up. So the sun is here in front of me he didn't lift the lid up, they put it on the cooker, and they only had two or three rotors, they did not make any threshold is nothing. Okay, so the guests came.
And Mawlana was the first one to lift the pot up and when he lifted the he said Bismillah and then he put his own hand in there and he took out chicken for this one chicken for that one chicken for this one. And then he the roti, again, he put his hand into the container he would take it out, break it up and give this one quarter this one quarter this one quarter that one quarter Captain he would eat himself ama was eating and gave a categorical game more chicken to this or more to the only a few key pieces only two three pieces. But he kept on taking chicken and chicken I detected at maratea mo data, every one was full.
And there was still some leftover.
This is from the karma of the earlier this is from what Allah azza wa jal gives from the kurama. And if you don't believe this year, that's you because when you spend time with study, if you spend time with him, then you would realize how he was because we study Rahim Allah, I used to go to his room when he opened up to me, I started to realize this is no ordinary man.
And I'm not just saying this today, on the way here, I found sharing from Oxford, who was the who's the nephew of study Ganesha name. He was in Bradford first that he went to Southampton is in Oxford right now.
She had a good conversation with him on that on the way and one of the things he said, I said to him share has said, I'm going I'm going to talk about strategy. No live in Pitt street in his mistake. And chef name, as I said to him, please share, I said, Tell me something that I could say he said, one thing he said, which is in my heart as well. He said this was no ordinary man.
He said, we in the family, we have a cat, you know, sometimes you have a little bit of a dispute amongst the he said, Our dispute is Who Who is that? Who is the person in the family? Who says that study is not close to him. He says everyone says it close to him. In fact, he was telling me he said that his sister is married to one of his sons. And it says she's like a boy who like a daughter in law to him. Even she says, who's not close to mama who's not close to to uncle. Everyone felt that they were closest to uncle. And this is it his family. He said whether it's in the family and the mothers and I want to tell you this. My father Rahim, Allah was a person who was a bit, you know,
his bit more on the tough side. Okay. He's been really given a lot of blast a lot of guys because if it wasn't for my father, I don't think I'd be straight. I needed the beats. You know, I'm trying to say like, yeah, I needed them. Okay. But I didn't have that father figure, you know, you need a father to teach you manners to teach you have to have a close relationship with Do you need that? I never got that. Because when I went to madrasa I was just to start from the age of 14, before the age of 14, my father was it was very much like, you know, he kept his distance from us. So he never spent that one to one with with us. I have to say this, and I'm not making this up. Study,
rahimullah became like my father.
And I will tell you this, if his son Ahmed was in the madrasa and I'm saying this in front of him in his Masjid, if he was in the madrasa and I was in the office the same time, I would get no different treatment from his son.
His son is nothing, I would get no different treatment because he actually treated me like a son. And this is a sign of a real teacher. And the way he treated me was like, there was no different from a real son to what I was as a student, I mean, I have no relationship with Him whatsoever. I just came across this like, I just came across this person and his is wonderful every day I'm getting things from him. And every day he never took anything from me. And he was to say to me, he to say to me Agia Joe
Coming up coming in a better way to Carlo Carlo said Eat Eat, eat he said even he said he says a hazard where you're going to find this food from things Alhamdulillah you know a lot of people used to give nice food kebabs and you know this kind of of chronic kebabs and shake kababs all the time use the company's room here. He's to feed he's to give a nice to give a nice to give. And he's the acca is to create with our acca loggia academies the big eater is here. So I used to go on a masala mala used to have lovely food in his room and he used to give an essay he says you can use he say he says you know joking with me is a stingy says you love you love dishing out other people's food,
don't you? That's because I used to, you know, in the in that when you're sitting with them and you take his food and you give it to somebody else, and when I give it to someone else, it's hard. They don't go there. Oh, okay. Jamal Heywood enemy
is that when you give somebody else's food to somebody, you know somebody else, because you're not giving your own food, are you? Right? But is to say to me, you know, he used to be very used to joke around like this and the best now when you look at the Hadeeth can Amazon Rasulullah sallallahu, we used to joke around with this and make big cracks, certain jokes, they used to make you feel warm. Now, he's not really putting me down at all. I used to love when he used to do that with me. But the thing was in his jokes, there were there were lessons. In his jokes. There were lessons I remember,
once I was next to him. And he gave me a T shirt name was in front as well, and was drinking tea and I drank my tea and I put it put a cup down and there's a little bit of the little bit left, you know, at the bottom, the sugar is there. And you know, sometimes tea leaves are there right at the bottom, so you kind of leave that. So I left that and one of monona Suvarna if you still wanna eat food, forget not leaving anything that he was on another level. Okay, so he drank his tea, and he used to drink all of it. And last one was like, like that. Okay, he needs to put it down. So he finished his and he's looking at mine. I've left a little bit and he said to me said Hassan, said,
you know, what's Avada Nasir masala. gonna have a look at the sugar. And you know, the liberal tea leaves. What he did is even further shape name. He picked my cup up, took it, he drank it and put it down.
And he said, don't leave anything. He said if you leave anything in your cup, he says it's a sign of kibber it's a sign of arrogance.
Now, you know you have to just stay out of a swamp like you'd say in a way somehow because I was close to him. He could say like this, when he would when he would teach someone something. So this is how he how he used to eat. Now imagine this year, he's finished a chicken, a chicken leg piece, or thigh or something like that. When it's finished it when it's finished eating every single part of the chicken meat on the bone, he would take his pen knife out
was that he had a pen I don't know how many of you sat with him to eat. Yeah, you take his pen knife, Harry's open it up, he takes the same bone and he will scrape the meat off the bone the remaining minute pieces will scrape it and scrape it and scrape it all around whether whatever piece he was scraping, and he would add every bit of it. And when you saw the bone that was left the bone was absolutely without any meat.
And he would leave it like that he would not let any single piece of his food drop and be left or not be eaten he would finish everything.
And you know this this is from his teachings to us. Now I'm going to go back to the other stories that are coming to which was you know in the outset in Pitt street Ito jeans and you waiting for the right
man man used to come to his house guests used to come to his house. And you know, all the time guests used to come down again. And always something is being given to the guests.
And what happens is sometimes people come in odd times sometimes will come in 10 o'clock 11 o'clock. And just like a hammer had to also take people out of the house. You know, like he's a farmer, his his father yes to give him a rest as well. If, if the people never said they're going to start D would never get them out of them. But this is what I used to have in Nottingham. in Nottingham I used to, I used to serve in breakfast in the morning. And then I used to return at four o'clock. And in the lesson time I got a lot of time from him because he used to teach us I got the lesson time. Then I got the after breakfast time. Then I got the four o'clock to six o'clock time. You know, I
used to really try and get benefit from that. And that's it. I'm done. Now, certain students used to go to his room at nine o'clock in the night. And they used to go inside the room and one and I would take his peanuts out. He takes his bottoms out, he takes his whatever he has and they're having a party in there. You know, like the eating and the to ask him a question about some of the questions that used to ask was wasting his time. Some of the questions obviously they're they're nothing of their benefit. They just asked him about his asthma that I think is monana never ever put anyone down not a single of those students, whatever they asked him he wouldn't
with them and who to talk to them and that's how he made his might have been his love and that's how he made them be people who wanted to love Islam wanted love the Quran that's how he got them. So sometimes up to 11 o'clock dangerous in his room I used to go to 11 o'clock knock on the door there's about seven of them sad days to go in. And Miranda would never tell anyone to leave. I said guys get up.
I used to be the you know the aroma. Yeah, I have to go in guys get I'm sorry. 11 o'clock wants to go to sleep because two o'clock is up for tangent. There is no compromise on that. If Maulana Rahim Allah I slept at 11, his upper two, if he slept at 12, his upper two, if he stepped at one o'clock he's about to and there's no other resting time, only in the day time, he would sleep 10 to 15 minutes just before vasara.
So practically, he's living asleep sometimes four hours a day, sometimes three hours a day, sometimes two hours a day, sometimes one hour a day. And I had to take those students out Romana would never say no to them to go out of his out of his room. And in that time Subhana Allah He is spending time with them whatever they want to sometimes even monana would get into a wrestling match with them.
You might think what Yes, there is one student I said this is one of my band before I just say it as quickly as a thing recap that there's one student that all his teacher said Throw him out.
A manana Rahim Allah said no. He said don't throw him out. He said, I'll take him in my service.
And one on I took him in his service. This was this guy was wild.
About seven people used to beat him up. And he still he could nothing happens to him. Okay, seven of us beat him nothing I'm saying. And he was doing all these other you know, things in the mother's eye, which they will start said all the teachers said Get him out monana alone. Satanism? No, is that I will look after him and it took him in his service. And then when I started to work with him, how did you work on it? He saw that, you know, he's a strong guy, right? He's a strong guy. So molana said, he said Manas. 70 years old now, this kid is 19 years old. 19 or 18 years old. And I'm not gonna give you the name for the for the sake of it. But I'll tell you this Manasa to the chair.
He said, he said you're stronger. He said, Yeah, I'm strong. He said you couldn't beat me.
This is this is wonderful. He said you can't beat me. He said what he said in wrestling. He said, he said he laughed. He laughed. He said, What are you talking about? He's I'll take your seven year old man who's not gonna take a seven year old man. I'm sorry. I'll take you on a couple minutes. Let's start. So Moeller in his room six by six. He's having a wrestling match.
And then what happens? You expecting right? One of the things that's going to be knocked on the ground right now. Malala put him on the ground.
He was strong. My God, he was strong.
And then he got him on the ground. And then the students said, he said, Look, he said, Look, give me another chance. give another chance. So mazurka stand up again. Let's go again. So the when again, when I got him on the ground again. manana only got him on the ground. monana put him in a position the 18 year old, strong, strong kid couldn't even move
on. And I said to him, he said What happened?
is around he said, You're strong. You're strong. Now through this. He created a friendship.
This is you got to think what he's doing. He's not just wasting his time. He never did this with any other student. He was looking for a way to get this student into, into the studies. For him to love to study the course that is in the medicine.
Now this kid know how embarrassed this this student was. This teenager was how embarrassed the 70 year old man put him on the floor. Okay, who is he gonna say this to? So he became like a little bit of a mouse in front of
someone I said, I said, Look, I know, I know things that you don't know. So then they start talking talking to Mom, I found out that he likes poetry. So monologue engaging in poetry more and more until everyday, the students to come and learn poetry of humans through that monana taught him the religion.
And through that monana made him swallow that that teenager who all the teachers were going to throw out today. He's an imam of his own right. And it's only because of study that that person became any man. Otherwise he was going out with the mother. So all teachers were ready to throw him out of the Melissa. This is the level of therapy and if I tell you so let me go back to that. Again. I'm drifting. Have you ever hear that story? Pitt Street The judge
told me this,
that at 11 o'clock, you know, aka he's getting people out of the house. And what happens is what some nights what happened this happened more than one night. He wakes at one o'clock in the night and in his father's room. His father is talking to somebody upstairs in the bedroom. So I remember his son gets up and he goes to the to the room. Who's talking I mean, one o'clock in the night, right? He knocks on the door and he goes into his father's room. His father who started I realized
Sitting on one side of the bed in front of him is a pillow on the pillow is sahadi or facing him. In front of him is another pillow on the bed and the same bed on that bed is a Buhari facing the other way around. And in that place is no one
so Mohammed says that I've been hearing that you told who you're talking to. who starts he says no and I said you might have heard few things whatever you had Go back to sleep. Don't worry, there's no one here.
many occasions he walked in that room and he saw his father like that with Buhari towards him Buhari towards the other way, and there's no one sitting there. Basically, he was teaching a gin and he was giving him lessons from Sahih Bukhari
this was this was your study which most of you never knew. And even I would have known known this thing but when you spend close time with him, then you realize that this is not no normal man. You know, why is he said to me this.
Because when you get close to him, he brings things out.
If you weren't close to him, you'd never say any of this. And I can only say this now, because he's gone away. If I ever said this, and he was still alive, oh my god was he would have got so angry with me. So once he said to me, he said Hassan, he said I know an ayah in the Quran, if I read it, then I can open any lock I want.
He said I know when I in the Quran if I read in any lock locked, completely locked. If I want to open the door or lock, I can open it.
I was amazed at this.
I asked him for the ayah he wouldn't give it to me.
He wouldn't give it to me. Then he said to you another day. He said Hassan he said I know an ayah in the Quran. If I read it, I can become invisible.
I'm not making this up. Now again, you might say well, where is that in the sunedison? Oh look, certain values of Allah they get close to Allah. Allah put something in the heart. They know what to read. They read it and largest inspires them. This is from the Mugello robot, this is from the experience, okay, this is this doesn't have to be direct from the Quran and Sunnah Allah gives it to whoever you want, he wants. And he said this, he said, I know an ayah in the Quran. If I read it, I can become invisible.
I said, Sure. What's that I?
He said, Where do you want to go?
And he wouldn't give me the IRA. So then I start to think to myself, Hmm, I need I need a good way. I need a good reason to get the IRA.
As a chef. I said there's a lot of a lot of things going on in the world, you know?
And if I had that, I said, where would you go? I said, I will I could go to certain you know, secret services. And I'm saying like, I could go inside they're seeing what they're planning what they're doing.
And he said to me, he said Hasson if you got that idea and you went to the secret services place invisible when inside there and you saw what they wrote, he said well you can do after that.
Sarah Lisa are not the nicest way you can do after that.
And then he would go into a whole discussion of look, whatever Allah azza wa jal has planned a lot that's going to happen anyway. We are only a means on the earth we have our will Allah has his will. And when the two wheels crash together allows will cuts the humans will. And he was a very strong believer of this will have that you do what you want. But Allah azza wa jal when his will classic clashes with your will his he's gonna cut you and whatever he wants will happen. But you're supposed to still do whatever you want to do.
Through that he will say that he will say the quotations of Allah the loans
that are off to Robbie because Lila was earlier of the loan would say that I recognize my lord by the time that I made an intention. And Allah wanted something different. And whatever Allah wanted happened, when he cut my determinations, that's when I found out that Allah is the one who's in control, and then he will talk often about his his share. His biggest share in his life was share Hussain Ahmed Madani Rahim Allah. Okay from the obon. He graduated from Durban in 1949. Okay, he graduated from Durban 1949. And he would often speak about Durban to me to us, and he said there was no other teacher that was on the level of Hazrat Hussain Ahmed Medina, Rahim Allah. And by speaking
about that, what he said is that he said what Allah gave Shea Hussain Ananda Himalayas and nobody else had. He said he will. I used to ask myself, how are you sleeping? Just three hours two hours in there. He said That's nothing. He said my staff my share hazard Hussain Ahmed Medina, Allah used to sleep one hour a day. Every day, one hour, he says
Sometimes when he wouldn't be able to sleep one hour a day, in the daytime, he used to sit down like this. And he's to doze off a little bit, just for a few seconds, and he would get up and he would say, Buddha both mean that the Buddha both mean that a lot. I get very, very sleepy I get very sleepy, said I've had a very good sleep.
And he said he would get up and on another 24 hours without sleeping and I used to be amazed how are they doing this? He said, so Allah, Chef Hussain, Ahmed Medina, Allah when he would speak about him, You speak very highly of him sometime because of his political you know, you know, contribution that he had that time in India because they were trying to keep India as one his thing was to keep India as one. And if you know about one on autonomy, Rahim Allah His thing was to have the formation of Pakistan or the formation of the different animals on land. So they had the differences both of them observed the noun right both in other volumes or light, all right, but they had this big difference.
And he said to me, he said, and this is from his teaching, he said once, share Hussein amantadine Rahim Allah He are further time because he used to pay 200. And he used to preach to read one Jews of the Quran in his third. And then after that, in the morning, he called a couple of his disciples. And he said to them, he said, You know what? He said, Pakistan is going to happen, as in the land the Muslims wanted is going to happen. And Maulana Hussain amantadine was was really working to keep India as one without splitting into Pakistan or whatever other land is going to split into. Now his disciples said, this was in 1946. He said this 1946 he said this 1947 is the formation of Pakistan.
These disciples said is that a hazard, you know, houses and then mahna mahna, Hussein Obama said, he said, he said Allah azza wa jal, you know, because Allah, Allah puts in harm what we call him, sometimes he puts a thought in the heart very strong thought that is going to happen. And this is from the earlier of a lot has happened with him. He said, I have felt this morning after my dua, that ally is going to allow this new land to happen.
His disciples said, but it hasn't it says so do you stop our campaign now? He said, No, we don't stop our campaign.
He was absent. Why? If you know from some thing that you received from Allah azza wa jal that this new land is going to take place, then should we give up our campaign and do something different? I said, No, he said, the human has to do what the human is seeing on the earth, for whatever Allah will will will happen anyway. And this is from the teachings of Manohar himself, that you do your best of what you want to do what Allah brings his cause in place and it goes against yours. It's going to happen anyway. But you've got your intention of doing whatever good it is just go according to what you see. On the way here today I was talking to manana Omar Abdul Razak, okay. He's from
Leicester. He spent a lot of years with with Jake after we've graduated in 1997. He probably spent the last 18 years of his life he spent with one guy who's traveling with him and O'Meara with him when he went to Pakistan with him, took him to Kenya several times made him come to Leicester and he stayed there. He spent a lot of time so I was on the phone to him on the way here telling me something you remember about hazard. He said one thing was vanilla, he said that Montana would teach you He will say to you make mushara with your with your elders have consultation with your elders on the one side. At the second time he would say do is taharah with Allah azza wa jal pray to the
cassava Sahara. But he said, when you're going to start on and last put into your heart to do something and you mushara you consultation, said do something. He said go ahead with it, whether it goes against you or whether it's for you, don't worry about it, just go ahead with it. Why? He said it's the harder works and the Matura or your consultation was in that direction to go that direction. And you went in there, even if you have a bit of a storm coming your way. He said don't worry, Allah will make it be better in the end anyway.
And these are from the teachings of Manjula because he used to give a lot of good advice. So behind Allah, he was he was even in philosophy. So Mahanama in philosophy, you would not be able to beat him in that in the debates that he would come up with in philosophy, philosophy, like I said earlier psychology, sociology, human beings, that behavior, all that monana was, was a was a great master of that. And I told you earlier in the talk, I don't know how much I'm going to be able to get inside these remaining parts. But monana was was a great person who would be able to read people or know how they wanted to be treated, and he would treat them according to what they wanted to be treated.
This was a very deep thing that Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam had, which is you meet someone you know how they want to be treated and you treat them how they like you'd like themselves to be treated. And he used to say to me, Subhana Allah
never judge a person. Let me give you from his tally from his
While and once I was in his room, and a person came in clean shaven, complete clean shaven comes in, you know, stocky person, 40 years old. And he came in and he said Salaam 200 has gone up just like he gets up everybody else. He got up, he hugged him. He embraced him. He gave him few hours. He had his cheerful face. He spoke to him nicely. He made his cups of tea for him for himself. He said that I was there, all the while, half an hour, he spoke to the individual. He answered all his questions. He spoke to him very well. And he met him to the door. As he left, he left study closed the door. He sat with me and then he said this to me. He said, Hassan, he said, Do you know that this individual
who just came in now? He said, Moosa, shiraki boo Arathi.
He said, from his mouth, I could smell alcohol. I could smell it at a good few drinks. And again,
I was surprised.
You're hugging this man. You're treating him just like everybody else. You've treated him no different than anybody else. And I was surprised. And he said to me, said Hassan is a listen and learn.
He said, Never judge a person by their beard.
He said this beard there is no beard. He said that does not tell you who has taqwa of Allah, who feels Allah who doesn't feel a dad does not tell you that. Never judge a woman for a hijab. She wears a hijab, not where the job dad doesn't tell you about a taqwa. Yes, she should wear hijab fine. But that does not tell you about her fear of God. He said the fear of God is not in the clothes is not in appearance. The appearance we do for a son of the Prophet find that is in its own sense. We do that that's a reward. And that's something you do you should do and so on the way you dress and so on. But he said that does not say he said you know this person.
Only mu says it from his mouth. I could smell alcohol but he said Hasson he said his heart was so clean.
Laila Allah, He said his heart was more clean than some others who come with big beards to me.
Now listen to this, I'm not I'm not putting down Look, I've got a beard as well. Many of you are not putting it down. But you got to understand what he told me. He said don't judge people by their appearance. He said he's got a lot of love of Allah in his heart. His heart is so clean. He's fearful of Allah vo his drinking his fear for a lot.
Then he told me a story. He said in Pakistan, we used to teach in the school.
He used to cycle it every day. And he told me another story by the way, and there's so many things that come to my head. I got time to finish this today. He said there's one man who's to teach in his school is 55 years old. How old guys same How old? I say they're 55 said he said are 55 years of age. He used to be he used to be a colleague of his both of us to go to school and teach 55 years of age that old man's said to himself, he's gonna he's gonna try and do hymns of the Quran. He's gonna try and memorize the Quran. So every day he used to memorize one ruku at home and that one ruku as his cycling he's to cycle mobilized to cycle as well. That person that old man used to used to go
over his land part on his cycle all the way till he reached the school. He said in seven years, every day one Roku three two cars, four cars like that and every revision was on the cycle is in seven years at the age of 62. That man we can have a
have a look around anyway, he's now telling me a story about another person in the in the in the school. He said in the school his or her son. He said don't judge anyone by their beard whether they have the beard or not. Yes is good. If they have the baby said don't judge him by that. Her xml nahama her ex Amina Herrick, say, Jordan, I will say we were we've got to meet everybody. And we've got to we've got to you know, be united with everybody. And then he said to me, he said in that school in Pakistan, he said there was a young 18 year old new teacher. He said this 18 year old he said if you looked at him, he was like someone from a magazine. You know, you get these celebrities.
You know, you get the silhouette, not the face. It's just like a like a designer face. He said the girls in the school in the college they were crazy for him. They were like all over him. They wanted him and you know him. He said Hasson is that snare cubby egg then just for Hirata when he used to teach, he said not one day did he used to look at those girls. And he was clean shaven, clean shaven. 18 years old, beautiful face. Girls are throwing themselves at him because he wouldn't even look at them. And he said, You know Hasson
He said he was happiest of 10,000 a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu 10,000, a hadith that man knew from his heart. He said don't judge anyone from the outside.
You don't know whose heart has what taqwa he said taqwa is in the heart fear of Allah is in the heart is not on the appearance.
These are the teachings that I would get for him from him. Sometimes we used to walk around in the neighborhood. And I will tell you one thing that's a mandala he would never ever cry. You know this thing about crying and crying and Salatin are never not in front of anybody, not even everybody.
I begged him to join him for tahajjud is when I first joined I said Marla, please I want to join you for that. And he said no, he said, I don't want anyone to join me.
So I begged him and I begged him and begged him in the end he said, Okay, I'm gonna allow you
so for about 20 nights, he allowed me to join him. And I was so excited but you know me I was a very heavy sleeper. He came and he used to wake me and he used to drag me out sometimes he pulled me all the way up
but molalla carried on you know, with his best way he pulled me up and got me into Hassan Abu colo Jakku Kala
moto. I'm so excited I'm gonna go and play with him. So I went in his room and you know two o'clock used to get up I was I used to say how do you get up? No alarm clock two o'clock. How do you get up every night? He said to me, this is the trick. You ready for this? You guys don't want to hear this? Do you guys want your salad and roti after this? Right? You wanna get going here? Taking all this time to study he said to me is that when you go to bed is a sit up on your bed. And this is from his moogerah body. These are things that they've experienced, okay, you're not going to find in the Quran Sunnah. Sometimes you come across things that you experience it's fine. If it works for you
just do it.
You can't call it sooner you can't call from the religion but if it works for you just do it. So he said to sit on your bed. He said Close your eyes and read in Angela who feel a little caught the surah
Raja hi Roman, Alisha is a surah. He said read it with your eyes closed all the way you come to have multiple lines in vegetal and he said when you say fudge and he said open your eyes and think of the time you went to wake up
and said then close your eyes. Again, read in Nyanza NaVi look at all the way to the end hatanaka open your eyes. And think of the time you want to get up and he said do three times when you do three times go along with the sprinkler head Go to sleep. That time you want to get up exactly that time you will get up.
If it's 302, you'll get up a 302 serious I've tried this is weird. But he said this is our hassane Allah tala neend Tada, chin llega lacking todo clear is that Allah will take this leap from you, but only for a few seconds. If you wake up in the night, five seconds, you're fully awake. If you jump up that time, then then you've made it if you stay there, your full sleep will come back to you.
And that's how he used to get up at two o'clock in the night. And when he would get up Subhanallah he will do okay, he woke me up I went and we went to his room. And he said okay, let's play tahajud together. So he made me lead. So I lead and after that he said Hassan he said now let me teach you how how I pray that come behind me and read.
So he started when he started you know he wasn't a full half of the Quran. But he knows he knew many parts of the Quran he could recite off by heart. So we're in the dark and when you pray tahajjud Subhana Allah full pitch, dark, dark, dark, right? Some behind him. And this is from the Sunnah of the Prophet Allah wasn't that he allowed Abdullah bin Abbas to join him in Salah. And later on. I found that in Sahih Bukhari he had a group of youngsters that came to him Salallahu alaihe salam, and he allowed them to pray the head Jude with him for 20 nights. And Suhana la mano father in sobre la be 20 nights, more or less roughly, to join him after that. He said no more afternoon. I couldn't
understand why. But I understood when I came to Bihar and read the Hadith. So what he did is he allowed me to stand behind him, he said metaplasia Carlota said was a fine and I started now when he said Allahu Akbar he started and he started to read. And this is knuffel Salah so you can read it very loudly. So he's reading it flamming he goes to some part of the first Jews long record, and he's a good long record. I don't know maybe I could be about half an hour standing here. Okay. 20 minutes, half an hour, I don't know. So then he goes into Roku when he went to Roku. I'm not joking. This is this is the sooner the prompts allows him when he used to do Is that right? When he goes
into Roku, however long he stood in his gang, that's how long he's doing.
So if he stood for 20 minutes, his record is 20 minutes
and I'm not joking.
This seven year old man who study is comfortably doing is 20 minutes, half an hour and me My legs are shaky. Right? And in his Roku, he says 400 milligrams, 100 milligrams $100 and after that they start to ask Oh my god, that was a last minute decrease.

And then he says do as again, these are the hours of from from Rasulullah sallallahu to us. And he will do another sort of 1520 minutes again, and then he sit in between another 20 minutes again, and he go back inside to do another one. Like I didn't get up again. And another good record and then all that oh my god. And this is just to record. You probably spent a good hour, hour and a half. I don't know how long if each one was 15 minutes each section

Hazard was a hazard during his lifetime and I could have benefited more I know that mallozzi you know when you when you meet a valley like this, please just take take every bit you can to take time off them. We never realized who he was. When he passed away.
The day he passed away before he passed away he actually said to the people around him in Pakistan, his images then tele Ganga is that that day everything's gonna be white. He said this a few times even when he was in a hospital he said the day I go this is everything's gonna be white. The day he passed away from nowhere there was snow that fell in the northern part of Pakistan there was snow everywhere but it melted very quickly for them to take the janazah to his right place but he said that is the day I go everything's going to be white now after he passed away this is Al Hamdulillah sorry my dream a few times and I'm going to write to true to dreams that I've seen in chocolate in
the oven can happen I'm finished okay. And he told me this to tell people that's why I want this to go in the camera. He came to my dream and he said he said to me he opened a part of the Quran while Latina whom we are yet to be him You mean on one Latina Homura beam la yoshikuni Latina tuna ma Taku modula to ihlara beam Roger en la que Saudi around I feel hieratic homeless, people will find this in Surah moon, these are verses that say those people who believe in the Lord, those people who do not commit schilke or any any associate partners with their Lord, those people who gave but they fear that they're going to have the hearts fear, they're going to return to Allah. They're the ones
who move forward towards higher and towards goodness. He said Hasson is her husband give Doris of this ayah teach people this it is so happy, teach people this I I fought my shake in Bangladesh. And I said to him as whatever scene he said, he said he's in a very good place. And he's trying to say to you that this has been his outcome that he is running to his Lord. You saw your own I feel Hydra homeless. Then I saw him again. And my dream and this was even more profound. The one I saw next was Savannah, I actually had talim from him. He taught me something in my dream after his death, a teaching that I never found anywhere in the books. This stuff seed you can check anything in the
world you will not find this. So he came in my dream. And he said Hassan, he said Moomin para Sham cubbyhole jatai is that Hassan believe is sometimes becomes a bit frustrated. His or her son the believer doesn't realize how Allah makes him grow slowly with his he man he doesn't realize it but if you were to look at it over time you realize it is in let me teach you now he's all my dream. He said look at the Quran. He opened the Quran. He was at the end of surah surah
48 surah right at the end, you know, Muhammad Rasulullah, Valentina. amanohashidate Pharaoh Hama, when another Ayah the last episode to check it out. So in there he said, You know, there is an example of the believer and how Allah grows a plant.
Raja Shah who for as Allah who first of all love of Allah, Allah Suki, yorgi basura Allah He will be on Kufa now that I uh, he said to me Look, has an intimate dream. He said hasn't come here. He said take this take this microscope, he gave me a Microsoft
show he showed he showed me the growing trees and look through the microscope and I looked at the microscope, and there are many layers of the of the part of the tree growing of the plant growing. He said look, there are 100 layers here 100 layers and I looked over like 100 layers, green layers growing but if you looked at the stem is on a small stem, but in the STEM when you look deeply, there are 100 layers. He said like this Hasson Allah takes the believer through life. And this is saying that the believer doesn't realize how Allah grows the believer, but there are many layers within him that are growing. He thinks he is nowhere but Allah is saying through this ayah
That is making him stronger and stronger. Then he said to me he said to me Sakura, he said to me said pura dounia ko yet of Sita batao Branca
so tell the world about the seed of this ayah said teach them this stuff see that the believer is growing not for the believers to think that they are desperate situation and lies not with them no allies with them is making them grow but they don't see how allies making them grow thicker and thicker. Anyway, I just
