Are you we learn immigration or the laws, the smugglers more manual work.
Therefore, this meme of became the lead the follow up, follow up on this and
therefore will become ecohome. And maybe I let my mini column and then said and then yeah, so the whole love loving a day restriction brothers and sisters were sitting versus law lawyers
were here to speak about and to listen about
children and education youth and education
and in saying that what I'm going to do is I'm going to take it back to the start of how all this came about for our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam had 23 years of Revelation, the Quran was something which was already already there. From beforehand. The Quran wasn't something which Allah azza wa jal plan while Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was living No, the Quran in its entirety was already there. It just had to be revealed.
Now when you read the Quran, you find Surah Fatiha in the beginning. You find Surah NAS at the end, that when Allah azza wa jal he revealed the Quran to the promise of the numbers. He revealed in piecemeal he revealed in small small segments, sometimes seven is sometimes a surah, sometimes less than a surah, sometimes a large Surah sometimes a small part of the Quran, sometimes one iron, sometimes a few items together like that, over 23 years they interpret revealed. So according to the incident that happened, Allah azza wa jal he revealed the Quran but there's a very big wisdom of Allah azza wa jal doing it later on. Of course, as the Quran was being revealed, like this, I came
down that part of the Quran came down this part came down to sudo Rasul Allah has and was told by Djibouti that A salaam that put this ayah over there, put that iron over you put this new revelation between these two old revelations, that's how the recent loss of Allah has been installed. And then in this entirety, we got sort of far too high again, only to pull on the Venus Okay, the Quran in its current form, the way we found it, that's how the sewers of Allah has arranged it after revelation. But as it was being revealed, it was being revealed according to the incidents that were taking place he was with us and allows us time. Now there's a bit of wisdom in this reason is
because Allah is teaching us something very, very special. In every revelation that he said, every single revelation that came to the Grace of Allah Allah to each revelation had a specific meaning it had an order, it had a way of building the Sahaba the Allah Ahmed nine with the prophets of Allah awesome. So the first revelation was the Prophet sallallahu wasallam you get is April it's the beginning of the 96 Surah Surah number 96 beginning five verses the current mission Arabic Allah the helot the diversity that I actually recited the beginning, those verses were revealed. Now, there's still another 6235 Something verses still to be revealed or 630 verses to be revealed. But Why did
Allah Anja choose these verses for the prompts
because Maka, the biggest sin they were doing, the biggest problem they had was ship. We will know this, there are several IATA can lead from about the ship several stories that will relate to them from the story of Ibrahim Ali salaam, Salaam and the idols that he had to deal with from the stories of new Khalid Salam and the idols he had in his time. You speak about any other
prophet, they've got their own or the people were worshipping certain idols, Allah azza wa jal never revealed any of that in the beginning at the beginning. Maka, maka, Rama was in a state of serious trouble. It had a lot of different types of, you know,
things that things that they were doing which were which were against humanity, they will even bearing the daughters alive, they have crimes which we know that should have been spoken about from day number one, and Allah didn't choose any of that he didn't choose the ayah in the Quran that talks about those those daughters being very lived as he says in the Quran.
I'd love to reveal that
there's two places in the Quran that talks about how they bury the daughters alive. And then they, you know, they move away and then they have guilt inside them and shame and what should they do and so on. There's a few verses in the Quran, two very specific ones that deal with it, Allah, Allah, Allah never revealed about this * about them about the things that they were doing wrong know, Allah azza wa jal, he simply referred us to today's problems of Allah Islam and to the very first Sahaba that will get their verse in the Quran. And the first message is read, the first message is read, the first message is got nothing to do with anyone else outside, it's got to do with you, the
person who's found this revelation. Why? Because what from this, what Allah taught us is, no matter what is going on around you, no matter how many things you think that are going wrong, no matter how many people are doing things that are wrong.
Your thing, your way of navigating through all of this, your biggest way of navigating through all of these problems and the people around you is for you to be educated. For you to get yourself to read to open your eyes. And to widen your scope. There's a big message here, guys, I want you to understand, we've got a lot of problems. Everyone's got problems around, okay, we've got problems in our society, we've got problems with, with our families, within our families, we've got problems maybe with your wife or your husband, or you've got problems, okay, you got problems with your children. Specifically, today, we can talk about children's education, you've got problems with
that. But in the midst of all of that, the first thing is to you for you to read, how much have you aligned yourself to be able to navigate through these problems?
Do you know it all? Are you in a position to know it all? Are you in a position that you know you're above everyone else? How do you know that if you don't read, if you don't read and if you don't broaden your scope, you won't have the best chance of being the one who still sees the best route out of all of this. So Allah hasn't got his first one first revelation to the proximate cause is a cover up read.
And our message from this revelation this particular item picked up to us is we have to educate ourselves, we have to read. And when I say read, there's a difference between read and difference between speaking. Now look, we've got a few things here, if you want to communicate with somebody else, but if you want to, you know you're in a situation where let's look at Ross, who also loves and he's in a place where he's been thinking about how to solve the problems out in Makkah. He's been sitting in his cave for a good sort of six months. He's been coming in and out. He's been alone. In this case, he's been thinking about the problems of Makkah, he's been wanting to sort it
out. And Allah azza wa jal tells him if Allah He sends you beta and Zara and he says
there's no resemblance Allah has and hasn't even started giving Dawa. Yet. Allah didn't tell the province allows him to give Dawa. He didn't tell him straightaway come for anvil. Stand up rise for Andy and deliver the warning to these people. Allah could have made that the first verse but he didn't do that. Allah could have said the first verses Yeah, you are Nast. And these people, all people are wrapped up in worship your Lord, because that's something which needs to be done. Allah doesn't talk about worship. He doesn't talk about rulings. There's no icon. There's nothing whatsoever about rulings of do's and don'ts. None of that Allah just says read this mural of Beacon,
let the Hello read in the name of your Sustainer. Who has created and there's a lot in this, there's a lot of meaning this is gonna unfold it piece by piece. So what it's telling us is, before you start looking at your problems, look at yourself and those who was with us, we could have easily given down. He could have easily spoken and told them not to do this or to do this. No, Allah said no, this is not the time to speak. Speaking is one form one way of trying to solve the problem out. Allah is really saying right now speaking is not what you need to do. Second way, what we know is to write something. Okay? Of course, hula salsa wasn't a person who could write, but Allah azza wa jal,
he told the practice, he could have told the ropes allows him to get someone to write something and generally, Arabs, they had poetry in their time, the poetry could have been used in a way to try and address the people of the Arabs. But that wasn't the means that Allah's wouldn't use. So today, I want you to understand
right now as we living in this day and age there's a hadith of Buhari that talks about our day and age. It's a lot of Hadith that when you look at it, you think wow, this is our day and age.
Our lives Allah Allah is Allah has, has said a hadith and that hadith has been transmitted by Buhari
And that hadith says,
You have humble column, the pen will become mighty.
But at the same time, yet full journal of ignorance will become pervade. Which means there's gonna be a lot of writing. At the same time, there's a lot of ignorance. Today's if you look at how much writing there is how much information it's an angel of information, there is so much writing, writing. I mean, we're talking about 1020 years ago, a lot of writing on paper. Now the paper writing has come to you know, as I started to fall down, but he's got so much riding on the internet, you go, you know, you want anything, you just got your phone, you've got your tablet, go to computer and you've got so much right writing is one way of communicating and trying to, you
know, sort out problems, speaking is another, Allah azza wa jal didn't say any of that. He said, Read.
Why? Because reading is where I put myself as a student.
When you write, or when you speak, you put yourself on a pedestal, you put yourself on a higher platform, when you read yourself, you're the student, and you've got it you need to teach. So Allah says, first you need to become the student. If you want to sort out problems, especially when we think about our our children and their future, and so on so forth. We seriously have to up our level of education.
Think about all these outcomes Shital can, in the Haram of Shere Khan, the Harada Vanderbilt is alive, that and the and the gambling they used to do the alcohol they used to drink and all the things that the immoral behaviors they have, none of that was addressed. The first thing is new, appropriate and all those who are getting this revelation read. The next thing says, this will rob the committee Hello. You're not only going to read but you're going to read and connect yourself up with the one who is creative. Now there's another whole form. There's another whole perspective here, which is Allah azza wa jal is telling us we're not only going to read but we're going to read
something which is from the rock so shows that it's it's something which on the religious side, and not only that is going to come it's going to become something which joins the month look with the holiday. It joins the creation with the Creator, very specifically, Allah use the word Holika
Holika in Santa Mina, Allah, Allah created this from a plot, why is Allah saying that the first revelation, because the whole point of this religion is and I'm gonna sub the whole point of the Quran is and many universities have said this, the whole point of the Quran is that you as the creation, connect out with the Creator. That's the whole point of the entire Quran. Not that we don't care about other human beings as we care about other human beings but me as the person who has found this revelation I need to, I need to make my own good connection with my family with my Creator. And then Allah azza wa jal says,
Hello people inside Amina Allah.
And then Allah, Allah says, what's the next verse?
The ACARA woroch Bukal, Accra keep reading see this, this is second time comes o'clock. If the white Allah says Accra two times now because reading is something that does take effort.
Reading takes effort. And reading is something that you can stop do so Allah's Will says, era. Keep reading. What up because
you know, your Sustainer is going to be most generous. And he's got I laminate in Santa nyalam Yalom. He's going to teach you something which the human which something which he doesn't know now straightaway, Allah has used the word Allah, which means Allah is now the teacher. Another means Allah is going to teach. Allah Mallinson is going to teach this the human being. So what I do myself is when I've got to Quran, I've got to now read the Quran, and I've got to become the student and I've got to allow Allah azza wa jal to become my teacher. Now we know that for us for Rasulullah sallallahu even for Azula Allah was and Allah didn't teach him directly he sent the radar Insulza
for us Rasulullah sallallahu becomes that mediums and anyone under the Prophet Allah Islam any of those who have learned this tradition probably have learned the Quran properly who have learned the Sunnah properly, they will teach us as people who have learned this entire you know, who know the ins and outs of these revelations anyway.
What this shows is, I've got to humble myself and now seek for guidance from Allah azza wa jal who's going to teach me now what is he teaching?
One of the things we are
understand in another part of the Quran, Allah azza wa jal, he says he says, I lemahieu Diane,
in the beginning of Surah AR Rahman Allah says of Rama, I learn Quran, Allah is the Most Merciful is going to teach the Quran
I love Al Quran hollobone inside i lemahieu. He Allah says, Look, I created the Hindi overdale as Read, read because you're going to create you're going to attach yourself to Allah azza wa jal, between that revelation and this revelation, some other revelations came. And those revelations were from Surah Muslimeen for the Promise of Allah who's going to stand up in the night and to to offer his praise to Allah azza wa jal into hudgell. Another revelation came Allah azza wa jal told him to give the warning to his to his people. But there's a very interesting thing here. Here, Allah azza wa jal in Surah Rahman surah number 55. What he says is he tells us that he's going to teach he
says, I love a good buyer. He's going to teach the human being how to be articulate how to use the speech, but to use his speech in a balanced way. There's a lot in Surah Rahman in the beginning where Allah azza wa jal three times he mentioned the word Misa Nisa, Misa is a balance. Measles is our scales. Measles is when you've got two sides of the scale balanced. What Allah azza wa jal is saying is that you're going to learn and I'm going to teach you but you will human being, you have to keep the balance right? In all the things that I'm telling you do, you got to keep the balance right. And this is the main point of the reminder today that Allah Azza wa Jalla is teaching us
through the Quran, he has given us information that many of us who are Muslims, who have who have received this revelation will receive this, this whole Quran we have got an imbalance within ourselves. We as human beings have to find the right balance. So Misa is the word using beginning of Surah man and what Allah is saying he said, Allah taco ofin Misa don't create don't exceed the limits in the balance. Now we know how balance works, right? The balance or the say, for example, you've got a pair of scales in your hands. Okay, so let's just say this is the right hand on the right part of the scales. And this is the left part of scales. If you've got 50 grams of weight on
this side, okay, 50 grams of weight on this side. And you've got say, let's say for example, you've got a bit of wheat. That is exactly 50 grams on this side is going to be exactly in the middle. Am I right? Is
that 10? Of you're saying? Yes. Okay. Am I right? Yes.
Unless it scales up.
Now, if you put 50 grams away to this side, but you wait now become 60 grams of weight, then what's gonna happen is that because this one's heavy is gonna go down a bit, and this one's gonna go slightly up. And we know how it works, right? You put too much weight, decide to go all the way down, you could to less weight than decide to start going down. And this we does we know how the balance works. What is on Mark trying to tell us, Allah azza wa jal is telling us that since the revelation came, the revelation is a manual, it's a manual, what is the manual mean? A manual means that it's only description. It's given you information. But with the manual, you also need someone
to train you how to do it. So for example, you're going to become a plumber, you got to become a plumber, you're gonna you're gonna get a you know, a, you're going to do a course in planning. So you're gonna learn planning first, they tell you, Okay, this is the purpose of this is soldiering is about blah, blah, blah. These are how you how you put two pipes together. But they're not going to stop there. They're going to take you to the real workshop, they're going to take you under another plumber. And that plumber will show you exactly those two parts in the drawing that you have in the manual that you had is going to show you how those two parts are drawn together. And he's going to
show you how it's done. Now, when the guy shows you that your teacher the plumber shows you how to do he's going to do quite good in a good way yes or no. Because he's he's done it so many years. Now, when you do read what's going to happen?
When you do first time, second time, what's going to happen? Are you going to make these mistakes and Sinagua? Yes, yes, you're gonna make mistakes. But that as you go along, you have what you have to do you have to balance your knowledge, your everything with what the teacher is doing, when you get it perfectly, perfectly right. Just like your teacher did it. Then you're someone martial Hunter, you got the balance right now. Are you are you guys with me? First in the beginning, your teacher will show you something, and then you got to start, you're wrong. The balance is wrong. He showed me again, you got to slightly write your buddies about this. Then he showed me again again
again again again and you did a few times and you got it perfectly. Well. Now your balance is right in that plumbing section. Now he's going to show you another one. He's going to show you some details.
The boiler with the boiler you've got one boiler he shows you again you read the manual to come to you do the work same thing happens you've got to carry on doing it under him until you get the balance right
and that was that was okay that was just one boiling some Bosch boiler yeah but you got another Bosch boiler another Bosch boiling another one other you know what's the boiler this one that one that one that one and now you got to learn all the different ones you've got to find the balance in each single area that's just boilers then you got to do radiators, then you got to do all sorts of drains and also other things. Okay, you got the point. The point is, in every single section, as your teacher is taking you through this, you've got the manual on the one hand, you need to teach on the other hand, but you need to get your own balance right as you learn. Has everyone understood
what I'm trying to convey to you? Yes, now let me bring this to my actual message. Allah gave the manual as the Quran.
Allah gave the manual the manual the bulk of this description is the Quran. Allah said the teacher the human teacher as Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi salam Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam his life his actions are perfectly in harmony with the manual the Quran. Has everybody understood that? Everything about Lawson does in every way he does it. If you want to know the exact balance if you want to get 100% Right? If you want to get to Quran 100% Right. You have to look at his actions and his behavior and his speech. And that's why we say Quran and Sunnah. You say not only Quran but the Sunnah as well because if it wasn't for the Promise of Allah Azza would never know how a human
should perfectly demonstrate that Quran has everybody understood. Guys, I need your thing as everyone Okay, now the third problem is this the real problem is this so the manual is perfect. The Zulu masala is perfect. There's no There's no problem and there's no problem in the teacher. Our direct teachings was flawless and Allah has their main Teacher of teachers obviously is Allah the Fuji relay to Muhammad Salah is not for us the one who we see is Mohamed Salah Hassan from the Hadith. The problem is me
because when I tried to do the Sunnah of the Prophet of Allah was and then when I tried to act upon the Quran, my balance is going to be a little bit room.
when I say me, I don't just mean me, me. I mean everybody here is me, me.
You guys understand? Every person who's trying to do the Quran is trying to practice the Quran, sunnah, you're going to have an imperfectness because you're trying to adjust yourself and get to the balance. Now who's your immediate teacher? It's the older man. It's the people who have inherited this from his Rasulullah sallallahu lifecell.
The humans you know, but amongst them there are those who have done their best to try and get themselves to, to practice the sunnah to practice the Quran and there's this pin this check from time to today. Now, we're not going to say to you that all are lemma all scholars are absolutely perfect. We're not going to say that Allah had themselves those who have gone through the Dustin's army, those who've learned this whole tradition, Quran sunnah become an island, they also need to get the balance right? Because those who Allah my young, remind me to look at SR Allah and get a perfect balance or sometimes the balance is almost right. It just needs a little bit of a teach to
get it right.
Just on Tuesday, right? Are you with me as some of that? Some sometimes I like driving Yeah, and your your perfect, perfect road. And you let that you just take your hands off the steering wheel and see how it goes and slowly moves to the left slowly to the left, you need to balance your time.
Depending on how bad it is, you're going to balance it out. Even if you are really good cause sometimes it can happen a little bit. When we're young, those who are learning teachers and so on. They need to look at the senior alumni and get the balancing right for the common people there to learn under those under those who've gone through this tradition. I'm trying to get the balance right. And children guys children this to me now. You guys are born in a world. You didn't choose your parents. You didn't get to say yeah, I want that one as my daddy on that one as a mommy.
You have no choice when you come to this earth you had no choice. Your dad could be that you could have been born to be a brilliant scientific minded dad.
Or you could have been born to some dad that you think Dad I don't know how you pass the school exam
you could be born to a mother that has a heart like you know some some golden trophy that you would you want to give to some
Some Chinese, or you could have a mom that has a heart that is hard inside, there are moms that have hard heart inside, you have all sorts of imbalances within parents understand that kids, I want you to understand, we do not disrespect our parents. But as you grow older, you have to get your own balance, right. But you start seeing how and where your own parents were slightly imbalanced, where some of your teachers might be slightly imbalanced. And there's a reason why I'm saying this to you, young children listening and even some of you who have grown up with some stars that you know, you know, is still hurting from those days, you know, I'm trying to say like, yeah, so some of you now
it might make sense. Look,
when you see some teacher or some parent, not living up to what Islam said, sometimes you find that sometimes you find parents and you find your mom or your dad or older brother or someone or a teacher, that didn't really live to the Quran what it said or didn't live according to the Sunnah. What was who was who was left behind?
Should you blame the religion?
Because if you're blaming the religion, you're blaming the man, you're blaming Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Now, as I said to you, is the manual perfect or not perfect?
Is the man who perfect
is Rasulullah sallallahu isn't perfect. That's what religion is.
Okay, if your staff did something wrong,
if your dad did something wrong, your mom did. You're always seeking someone do something wrong. They are in question with their balancing
is not a religion. Most young people who hate religion, who grow up with some kind of anxiety towards religion, some even leave the religion.
So one of these, one of these students asked the question, not verbally, but they had to write their questions and pass it on to the front.
So when he got the question, and he read it out, he read the question out.
And, and the question, it wasn't a question. It was actually a comment about models. And I'm wondering who's the teacher, he's the teacher, from all the students here. This thing came in his lesson.
I don't know what people would do. In this day and age. If you read this thing. I'm going to read it for you. Right. To read this out for you guys. It said
that post is at Monarch Hussain ACMA.
He is worse than the tale of a dog.
He's worse than the tail of a dog. Now we know dog has no Jassa in in Islam. And the tail of that how bad it is to describe that obviously, this student is not someone who likes him. Students come from outside somewhere just studying there just to get his graduation. But he's not really you know, if not, is not really giving any respect to what I'm saying. Now you can imagine if that was anybody else, what the what the reaction would be a charging a chair. Let's find out who's writing this is. Let's analyze it. Let's get every student show the right to match this and we're gonna kick that student out.
One on Zero Hunger. They never did that. Know what he did. He said
he said Hussein Akhmad they are not kidding. He said he didn't address himself as for Cena. He said on the bear journey. If present, Ahmed ends up in hellfire, then this is this is not only true, but I'm going to say to you that Hussein Ahmed in that case is worse than the tail of a dog.
Because the dog will be turned to dust on the day of judgment, but Hussein Ahmed will be in hellfire. So therefore who said Ahmed is worse than the dot and its tail. But if Hussein goes to Jana on the Day of Judgment, then Hussein will be better than the dog. And it's the tail of the dog. That's it, he calls it letraset
now look at the hikma look at the wisdom. Look at the balance. Look at the there is no judgmental in a way. I'm telling you that when these youngsters come to us with their problems, they need to know something we've got to have our own balancing check. If you've got to balance a checkbook I'm asking you youngsters go to Allameh go to those who are broad minded who are not judgmental. Go and ask them your question and if you've got something inside you that actually says that you know what, I don't think this is
right in Islam, guess what? You're not alone the Sahaba had questions like that. If you have doubts and if you have something that comes and tells you tells you again and again you know there's something wrong ie they might be about Allah it might be about the prophets Allah has somebody might be about the Quran it might be you know was was a comes like this, it might be about that and if you get that you know what, go and find a teacher, someone who's not judgmental and go put it in front of someone who knows, either he's going to give you the answer or he'll direct you to someone who's gonna give you the answer inshallah.
Now, in terms of this whole balance thing, what do you what do I want to say to you next? This is another whole important part of this remember give me the example of the plumber
guide you remember the plumber first you read the manual then you went to the two pipes you put the two parts together that was just the beginning then you had to learn how to bend the pipes and whatnot then you got to the boilers you have to learn and then the different different boilers then you have to go and learn about some other parts of drains and some other things from from it could be any, any anything to do with what plumbers actually do. The same thing happens with Islam. Islam, also we Muslims. But did I ever check whether my own salah is in balance? My own color and my speech is in balance with the manual, which is the Quran Have I ever checked, have any checkmark of Lord my
behavior, however, check my reaction to certain situations that happen that are very stressful situation, have I ever checked whether I've got the balance, right? Just that the plumber has to check each and everything with his piping and his boilers and, you know, wash machines and other stuff that he has to go through and check how you can do all these things. Just like he's gone through all of that I as a Muslim have to get my balance, right. The reason why I'm putting all of this in front of you is my young youngsters, listen to me. You're born to your parents, your parents are wonderful people, you must respect them, despite their mistakes, you start respecting, we have a
wonderful religion that tells us even if your elders are wrong, you still have to respect them. Why? Because it keeps us in a society. That is that doesn't have anarchy. It keeps us in a society that has got regulation, we're able to function properly. You must respect your parents, you must respect the teachers. Yes. However, amongst your parents, sometimes what you realize is they prefer culture over religion, it happens. Sometimes you have a cultural part of them, which has got nothing to do with religion. But then they say that this is something that we must do as muslims, and you have a confusion in your head. And you're like, Well, why should I do that for me? Is that suddenly gonna
show me where that is a system
in Australia with you meant to shut up? Sometimes the behavior and the actions of your parents within themselves. Your mom is arguing with your dad, your dad is arguing with your mom. The bickering with each other you hear certain words? You think well hang on a minute. I've been told all my life not to say those words. I've been told all my life but to speak or not to lie or not to do this. How can my parent is doing this when they're having their own argument? It causes you to feel Whoa What's up you know what, what went wrong there? It's their balancing that is wrong. Don't let me slap
it doesn't take away the fact that you as a Muslim still have to get your own balancing right as a child.
Kids I have you got the gentleman trying to say to you, you're still responsible for your behavior, even though your parents got their behavior wrong according to the Quran.
When he comes to your grave, you're gonna go along to agree you're still as you grow up even if your parents haven't learned the Quran properly.
You're someone who has to learn you have to learn to plan properly I'm gonna say I'm probably one of the things I said to you that look either people don't even know the manual allow the people don't even know the manual. What do I mean by that? It's very unfortunate that our own societies especially, you know, as growing in Muslim households, we think that reading the Quran is enough for the reward and we don't go beyond that. It's very unfortunate. My brothers and my sisters that are listening, I want to tell you that the Quran, Allah has revealed it Lea double it so that it's verses can be contemplated over Allah says via that curl so that we can take draw some lessons from
the Quran, Allah azza wa jal has said to us, he's revealed the Quran Lippo Minya Allah Moon for people who understand the who actually know what the Quran is,
for the people who do
The sun the Quran, that's what the Quran came for. Now, if I'm a Muslim, and I don't even read the Quran from cover to cover even in its meaning, I haven't understood the manual. And to understand how Rasulullah sallallahu has practically demonstrated the Quran, you have to you have to go through the serum. These two things are really important. The Quran, its meaning, that's the manual, and Rasulullah sallallahu Sera, you get the balance perfectly right? And now you can start getting your own balancing, right? If you haven't read the Quran, if you don't know what the manual says, if you haven't studied the prophets of Allah wa salam didn't they itself, you've missed the whole book. And
your parents, no, kids understand this, your parents have probably never done this. Your parents went to McDonald's. So they went to Madras when they were young, they just taught them how to do NAMAs how to do Salah and a bit of Quran reading. And you know, these things are holy, like the Lord Allah Muhammad is a holy Arabic is holy, you know, just be yourself. Don't be scared these things. And that's it.
You have to educate yourself beyond what you get it.
You have to navigate through all of this beyond what you see. And how do you do that? Look, I myself, I need to first understand that I'm going to come in front of Allah azza wa jal, and I am going to be questioned myself. My parents are going to be questioned separately, my teachers are going to be questioned, my community people are going to be questioned. Secondly, I have my own question, what can be done?
model for Rahim, Sam, he told us and he taught us this one wonderful thing in one of the first lessons I remember.
One of our first lessons we did in the rulings of Islam. He said everything you do everything you need to know. And it's a wonderful, a wonderful thing he taught us.
He said, Rahim Allah may Allah have mercy on himself, the wonderful teacher, while absolutely wonderful teacher, he said, everything you don't everything a human does on this earth
is to get in Arabic as a Mullah who, and to stay away from my ally.
Everything a person does on this earth, every human's actions, everything they want to achieve or do, it's because they want to get some benefit from them for themselves. Any kind of benefit, I'm not talking about the benefit that the government gives you. I'm trying to say, I'm saying any benefit, any form of good benefit anything that's good, they want to receive it for themselves, and they want to save themselves from things that are going to be harmful to them. That's maluca. Ali, if you understand that you understand a lot about the Shediac. You understand a lot about the Islamic way of life. Why? Because the whole of Islam, and the karma and the rulings of Islam is for
every human being to get maximum benefit of what will benefit them in this world and in the ACA. And everything the Sharia law has told us don't do this don't do that is because it's going to be harmful for us in this world and in the next world. And that's why we're studying all of this. We're going to try and get the best of what's good for me. Now, guys, look, you wake up in the morning. Why do you brush your teeth? While you brush your teeth content? Why do you prefer to
hide you? But why do you actually brush your teeth? Let's say some kid God said, I don't want to brush your teeth
every morning or brush your teeth with
one of my teeth like they tell me twice a day, once a day, whatever. I'm gonna go without brushing my teeth for five days in a row six days in a row seven days in a row. Yeah.
By the time he says yeah, half the people who's gonna die because
you know what happened when you don't brush your teeth for five days in a row six days in a row, you're not going to be able to spell you know, keep keep up with your breath and
know that you're gonna get cavity you're going to get clogged, you're gonna get your teeth, they're gonna feel rotten, you're gonna feel like oh my god, my teeth are hurting. That's why you brush your teeth. Now, why do you brush your teeth, not only just hygiene, you know? And it's going to benefit you. It's going to benefit me. And it's going to save me from all the troubles I'm gonna get my teeth if I don't brush my teeth. It says very basic thing. You think about it, every other movement. Why do you invest money? Why? Why are you trying to make money because it's gonna benefit you.
If a human understands the world of what will benefit them, and what's important to them, they will do those things and they will try their best to achieve those things. But as a human being doesn't see those things that won't do. They just won't do.
So for example, right now, a lot is being said a lot around it is being said around the world about
environment, you know, the environmental crisis that we've got a lot being said about. Because that information is around a lot of people trying to do something towards, you know, protecting the planet
30 years ago, that wasn't the case. Humans won't do certain things if you don't, if they don't feel that it's important for them.
If you actually feel that water is gone, there's been a rainfall in this country has been less this year. If the government says there is a case of a drought coming to the UK, which already the same for this year, the same parts of Britain are already sending send signals out that there could be a drought, when they turn when they turn to us. And they say, seriously, watch how much water you use. Otherwise, we're going to be left without water, we're going to be we're going to need to try and use less water. Is that correct? Yes. Forget that. Let me give you a better example now that the gas prices and electric prices have gone up. Have you noticed the people in the house have been a little
bit more careful with which light is on which law is off?
Yes or no. But all those who said yes, other people are paying the bills in the house. The rest of you sitting here spoke out Yeah, you don't know about this, because you don't read the news. She doesn't hurt you. If you're hurt you, you care about it. You're gonna switch you off. You know, the new thing that's on the Wi Fi on in the kitchen, the knowledge in the kitchen, you had to because you're paying the bills. It hurts. Yes.
I'm talking from experience.
Because double the price of electric, right, double the price of gas is gonna hit you right now, because he's coming out your pocket now hurts you why? Because they gave you the information, you know that gas companies are calling you electric Electric Company has called you? Well, they gave you a letter, you saw those digits down there. You saw how big the digits are. And it's coming out your bank balance and it's hurting you. Now, guys, please stop here for a moment. Let's think I've got just like the electricity that doesn't balance or the you got the gas gas, you know, company has given you certain digits, we can't discount all the time up and down in the Haftarah.
Everything I'm doing something is happening in the app. Either my reward is going up and the balance is going higher, or my reward is being reduced and the balance is going wrong. I'm losing out. One of the things I found for the tortoises he told us in that lesson I remember he said one day human can feel
that the Acura and the benefits of the Acura and and the harms of the era are much more greater
that the harms in this world and the benefits in this world then you seriously want to learn what the Sharia is saying because you you're creating yourself a massive problem in the Accra if you don't know what to do imagine someone didn't even know that their electricity bill is gonna go higher. I'll give you an example of what I don't think it is now used to happen quite a lot before mobile phones people used to take them abroad and then you roaming services on Yeah, guys, you know I'm talking about Yeah, you take the mobile phone abroad, the roaming services on you start talking you know, Daniel, Lahore one day karate you want to be in the middle of Europe somewhere. Yeah. By G
how are you? Okay, has the gun the ticker?
As in good, you gotta Yeah, good. 30 minutes. Yeah, 20 minutes there. You come back to the UK. And some people found that are 1000s of pounds of a bit when they came back, because the company said the rule was, when you're abroad, and you use your roaming, we're going to charge you this much price. You never knew that you came back straight and how to pay all these 1000s of pounds and you came back straight. Then people realize and people started to switch off the roaming when they went abroad. Yes or No, guys. If you still haven't done in Han, I don't know what you're doing.
So now, imagine somebody gets you the idea that you never knew. Certain things that happen, for example, give us an example. Somebody bought bikes. But biking is talking behind someone's back about something something that they wouldn't like, you're in recovery back what is happening. You're there, you're silent. You never said anything. You just sign them by inviting them back. In, you're in the crowd you're in, in the circle, you're in the back but
you assign you never said a word but you listen, you never walked away and you never told them to stop. Do you know you're sinful?
The sheriff says this. You are sinful they get the equal reward the equal amount of sin and you
You get the equal amount of seat as well just start there. Why? Because you participated. How, as a silent listener, if there's a crime in front of you happening, and you don't say anything about it, no, do you stop them in a situation where you could have stopped them? So we're talking about situations where you could have stopped them. You could have done something about it. You never walked away. You never said anything, but you're part of it watching them, then you're part of them. Do you know that the canon of Saudi alayhi salatu salam, the Canon was not killed by the entire nation. It was killed by a few people. Few people killed one man he went ahead and he said the
camels leg another man jumped in another one don't another one jumped in a few of them between them they slit the camel enough solid blood came out and don't drop down at the camera to die. But the entire nation got punished why? Because they all stood them they watched it. They watched it now if you don't know the Sharia you might be doing something wrong right now what's gonna happen? Think about
that what is it with our people? Why is it that I'm just gonna Okay every year comes I just do the normal I just work it out how I know there's a case Have you ever gone through scholar? Have you ever gone to a cause of Zika Have you ever gone someone said listen I want to know because man I don't want to end up in the on the Day of Judgment with a snake that comes from my feet wrapped around dark my arms and legs around my hips comes all the way to me to my face rubs me my entire body and the looks in the face and says I'm a man who cannot cancel the annual wealth I'm the hoarded wealth you have which you never take that out upon.
If you don't take your calculation of Zachariah you know a lot of things these days you got stocks you got these coins by friends many coins that are out there you got to find out first what is hard to invest what is not hard to invest second thing is if you got the stocks in communion thing that for example you've got gold you've got this you got land you've got produced I know
a lot of love these a lot of our uncle's never knew I had to tell my dad this
because so much land in Bangladesh and then they go rice on those lands. And then from the so much rice that they go that they eat some of Vietnamese selling a lot of it right the selling quite a lot of you know what they call Damn, they're selling this, this rice out here. There's zakat on that on the part of the selling they're making profit. If they're above a certain threshold after basic gardening, I'm not saying something wrong
with the service, there's something wrong. No, I have to be careful as though I mean the most, I mean, some shady place.
If you have a certain threshold, and you're now selling the products as a business, you're making money from it. There's gonna be so caught on you got to know the rulings of it. My point is this, whether it's this ruling, that ruling, do I know my own religion properly? And if I don't know why haven't I gone to the scholars or to the Imams to learn about this knife you as a community thinking y'all law. What in the world is true that certain things that we don't know, masha Allah made it very easy for you. If you've got Mala Mala Mia as the Imam you know instead of listening to all these sutras about this and that you can have some cooked as long as I come to these rulings. And
I'll make your life a little bit difficult on him. But you know,
you can ask your Imam to have certain topics in the year on some of these rulings, which people don't know about and enjoy before the Juma hookah you can educate the people about these things. But even if it's too much to cover in July, you can add a specific timeline that's a once a month twice a month. We need to go through these can these rulings and let people know why they need to cook anything. There are certain things that we are doing we don't even realize that we need one.
One of the things that we do right as well Subhanallah and I think to know the back further I'll give you an example right? I'll give you some people don't know about this but they they can do more for this they don't even know begin to work for this. You know the shopping that you do every single week for your family. Yes guys.
Two guys to shopping and
when you start the first plan is shopping for the family.
You know the shopping that you guys do for your family every week? Yes.
Every family member breadwinner, head of the family who himself earned his salary. took that money went and did some shopping doesn't matter where you went to the shopping bought that those items in the house. You're feeding yourself and the family. The fact that you are completing your responsibility you have now got the
You would have Sabha and charge
that doesn't mean you stop giving yourself on Friday.
Okay you know my minister that
I gave you to hold me
you got to reward ourselves
you guys gone for to college in university? You guys think that oh, I'm not learning anything religious
you go to the you go to college you go to university you spent about six years there two years college four years University. After you get your degree kind of thing, Oh, that guy. He went to this religious course of Narcos Narcos cards. If you don't know your religion, you're going to feel like this. If you had the intention of learning this certain profession, to benefit humankind to benefit people. You're getting reward for that. You're getting rewarded for all those lessons that you went through. A
lot of people don't know this, you're doing simple things. You get into warfare you don't even know at another one, you get a reward for
you even though this is something beautiful. And you come across this thing, man.
There's a hadith in nursery that says Prophet Allah says, he says I guarantee I guarantee the middle path of Jannah I'll come up with
a very, very lush basically a lush portion of Jana very good place of Jana, I guaranteed for that person who was in the right in an argument. So rather he's having an argument, someone he's in the right in the argument that he gives that up for the for the sake of peace.
For the sake of peace.
You know, sometimes that happens to us, Suhana Allah, you don't know your religion.
I tell another. People don't know these things. That's when people get into solid frustration. You're in a situation where your right was taken away from you.
Your ride was taken away from you. And it could even happen nobody came in and just explained this to you.
Sometimes there happens in awkward ways.
Your word was taken away from you, because of how this other person put their case in front of the judge. Sometimes it happens that you lost, you lost your land. And it was because of that person how he spoke. Now, Sunday look, even the most religious person in the most balanced judge sometimes because they are they're doing the best.
They can sometimes make a mistake
in the judgment. It's not that they did anything wrong themselves, is the case of the head. Let's see. Let me give you an example. The hadith in Wuhan, two men came to the Prophet of Allah Azza wa salam. Both men claim the same piece of land
is a Hadith Buhari to sahih Hadith. This is who else this is the best individual ever to live on this earth. The most perfect person to sue Larson Alaska himself, he's the judge. These two people come both playing the same land. The prompts are laughs and listens to this listen to person A then listens to person B. Then listen to person A and then B and an A and B and listen this is one of them. The hadith says Kana al Han he was very very eloquent in his speech in how he presented his argument he was so what he spoke so when he was pitched against somebody else, the man who couldn't speak that way who couldn't you know what sometimes you
over you fumble you don't get the words right and you don't know how to counteract the the person's arguments and you don't have to present your arguments in a coherent way. And you kind of seem like you know, you're not you know that but the other person presented his argument wonderfully.
And he said all the right things, and the person was listened and listened. Listen, in the end. He said the person who spoke so well and gave his you know, his arguments over the line and all this evidence for this land probably, he gave he said it's your land.
And both of them started to walk up. And you realize lamb came and he said to the Messenger of Allah, Allah, something and the profit and loss and then said a hadith as well. He said sometime, he said in Nama is it is I am, I am just just making a judgement here in Nova
Hopefully, I'm making a judgment.
And I'm going to make the De Noc Rama USMA mean, he said, I'm going to make the judgment based upon what I've heard from you. But if one of you has taken the wrong piece of land, wrong, wrong thing that is not theirs, then there's going to be distances punishment for them. The promises have made that statement and elected, meaning that the person who was so eloquent in their speech, sometimes they can influence the situation and protect things towards the way. Now I'm saying this to why my brothers and my sisters are listening. One of the key things about education is I have to go,
I have to learn. If you don't know the new ask, if you're in this position, you don't know you ask. Rasul Allah, Allah as Allison said,
in nama she felt when he felt like a so if you're unable to express something, unable to you don't know something, then the the cure to that is to ask. If you don't know something, then you need to ask that's the least you can do ask a question.
Your job is to ask the question, and people's job is to give you the right answer. So what I'm saying is we need to all educate ourselves. And one other thing I'm going to say to you is this.
He's got about six minutes left with salah. One of the other angles that I wanted to cover in this in this piece is that when Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi salam he gave us he presented the manual to us. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam did something brilliant, which most of us miss out and we miss out on specifically with our Tallinn and our education.
We miss out specifically on this promesa what is that?
When Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he taught salah, he taught how to do the Salah, he taught the demonstration of Salah he took the words of Salah and he taught the devotion of Salah all in one package
for Salah Salah has never differentiated between one and the other. He didn't teach the Sahaba okay, just learn that learn how to raise your hands, learn how to do recall that separately teach them and another time learn the words or something and then some other time teach them how to have the devotion in their Salah know the promise of the last one gave them as an entire package.
There was only one when they learn from the process it wasn't they learned everything together. They lead to devotion as well together. There is no such thing as getting your Salah down to just get your Salah done and there's no devotion no the prophets of Allah somebody he saw one day a man came into his Masjid he prayed and that man he prayed as he was walking out he said salaam to Salah, Salah Asana, perhaps Allah or something he gave the answer of the salon. And he said to him, it's a Sunday for a nickel empty. So let's go and break and you haven't prayed. So the man went over again, he prayed as he prayed, which was in a fifth form. And then as he will pass the profit and loss and
the game salon process and said Sunday, on Sunday, God pray again, you haven't failed. And the third time the process got up and then he demonstrated for him how to pray because that person didn't have the devotion or he didn't have the steadiness in Salah that you need the process mentor because when the process isn't taught, he didn't teach anyone how to pray fast. He didn't teach anyone how to pray for us. It was just one form of prayer.
When any of the rulings of Islam came the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam gave them as a package, for example, when it came to our transactions and our dealings. Let's say for example, the rules of a halal business, the roots of of sometimes haram in business, the profit and loss and spoke about it. What did he do? He went to the marketplace after us. After many answers Salah he used to go to the marketplaces. He used to watch the Muslim sellers at the marketplaces. He used to look at the goods he used to see what kind of goods they've got. He used to see if anyone's cheating. He used to see if anyone is breaking the rules. And then he would come back to the masjid and he would make another
statement to try and get information about how to do business. So for example, one of these times will happen is one man, he realized that in Madina Munawwara from far away, they used to they used to come with a whole load of goods from like Syria, and when they used to come these to complement the interface to send it to all the market nowadays to send a wholesale so what one guy did he became clever.
He went to the northern Medina to the highway. He stood there you waited for the next caravan of goods to come down. As soon as the car on the Good Goods came down. He stopped and he said do me a favor. I'm gonna buy your entire stock wholesale, paying more price and got the holes
Whole thing wholesale, came back to Medina put all the goods in his house and he waited till that product ran out when it ran out and he bought his product out. And now he cornered the market. He was he put the price of really high, and now he was selling it at a very high price. Probably SallAllahu Essendon forbid, he said, This is hard. Why? Because it was was law as it was watching what was happening, gaming the instructions, watching it and telling them how things should be done. He himself was a businessman. So Allah, Allah Islam, he had done business before he knew what to us. And he gave a perfect demonstration. He was watching how to regulate the business in Medina. Now,
this is the thing that we need, which is what in every aspect of life when we learning about Islam and taking the education inside is not just about the rules.
It's about how we apply the rules. How do we get that balance right? Do I know only information first? Let me learn first, what is he saying? What is he saying this thing that this thing government do? What does he say? The next thing is, am I getting it right? And have I got all the elements right? Because even in a HELOC, even in a halal business, there are ethical things that you can do, which is much better
than ethical choice. I'm gonna give you one example right now, you know, most of our meat shops that we have out there mashallah hamdulillah some of us consume meat like no other business. Yeah, we like we love our meat yet. Mashallah. But one of the things that we don't do and we haven't done as a Muslim community, is to look at the quality of the meat that is coming to our shops is all these are Hana. Ignite deserver has been done. What about the quality of the meat? How the animal has been fed? How the animal has been kept throughout it throughout its life? Whether it actually ate organic or not, was it roaming freely or not? You guys, are you guys up? As you know,
sort of, there's a whole section in the Sharia. Getting all those elements, right? is the way forward of learning our religion in the in the best way? Now what I'm trying to say to you is this, my young brothers, my youngest is this been a general thing for all of us.
If we are going to learn Islam the first time let the stamp properly. Second thing is if you're going to learn it, go to the best teaching you can find to the people who are not judgmental, who have a good understanding of the religion go learn from it. Next thing is I've got to get my balance, right. I might have learned how to how to, you know, say the right thing at the right time. But whether I say the right thing at the right time is another thing. Let me give you an example.
I know a van is going to be in about a minute named give me the exam example. Can everybody say the word server?
Can everyone say the word sub
sub means what? Patients see? For you to say the word summer took you one second? Some
but for you to learn server, and for me to learn, somebody takes a lifetime. You guys understand Sahaba learn some of them the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but the Sahaba had for them during the lives they have problems. Then they came to the Prophet Allah in the midst of the problems, and then they were told how to apply that some of you got back. Have you got the yes or no? Yes, you understand that? Most of your things were analyzed. I think it's time right now. So that NBH Allah does that.
