So the following firstly My dear respected brothers and sisters are saramonic
law so just make this moment a moment of hate of goodness a moment of keeping us together and honestly this this topic is a must. So the topic selfie versus sushi and some people must have thought, you know, staff in La Jolla, how can you do that universities I even had somebody wiped out versus actually crossed it out. They didn't like it versus you know, that wasn't the intention. It's not like, I'm going to sit here and I'm going to do what they do back home. Have you seen debates back home? Oh, my God. I watched one on YouTube the other night.
I was preparing for the talk I went on to look at some Deobandi umbrella V and Sufi and Salafi sort of you know,
videos. Actually some of these guys back home back home I just came back from Bangladesh. And I was there for a whole night seminar and
I'm giving a talk like this I'm talking like this snowman. And those guys they can't talk like this they think if you talk like this No one's gonna listen to you now to see if they think this guy ain't got a voice this guy don't even have any road to bat in his stomach.
This guy can speak so therefore you gonna say or many
ago or like in Bengali
guys his you know His eyes are wide open his mouth is gonna he's almost going to like you know crack the sky open is the the whole the ocean he came in front of me he did drinking one Gulf you know, you know the guys guys go to show that he is Mr. Universe and he's gonna kill anyone come in front of him. And all he's talking about is a man or something. Talking about simple thing it just it just don't make sense. And I sat down I said to these guys, I said why do you have to speak louder? They go well, it's our culture is it's the way it is. If you don't speak louder, you're not taking seriously. So I've got an image like this
I'm not gonna get all so you know, high top and get you hyped up and say God
right and if you don't say coffee, like I heard it on, you know, YouTube the other day, right? The guy say no, these guys are made and they will send you the nod.
Allahu Akbar. Right. As they say that and then the guy had gotten them. He said, Zora simbolo say even louder. gavina don't say the logic to say he said because you guys are not saying kaffee loudly that's why they've become so big.
Come on. I tell you, you know, you think slide I love these guys, Moodle. And you know what? back home again, so you know, a lot of this trouble has come not because it's all started here started back home. You know, you can get caught up easily with all of this hype talk and, you know, grew up grew up kind of folk and they, you know, I have to say, and I'm gonna be very straight to the point. Because Alhamdulillah I was born in this country. And Allah gave me a British passport when I was born. So you know, I go to some of these mustards and I tell him, I want to British fast food. British fast food, I tell him stranda membre, Salah Alhamdulillah give him a shot and you can't, you
can't like, tell me what to do and what to say. So what I used to see when I was young in this country, this is up north. In the Midlands, I see in these countries every five years the magnitude change. And you know, you growing up, you go with the dad when you're about you know, six, seven, and then you go
We did that later on 1213 years ago with 1890. You always seeing that the amount of change every five years, three years only changing. And you wonder why then you get the full story later on, because you start getting into and finding out what these guys have done. And this is a lot of mosques in the 70s have done this, a lot of Muslim, the 80s have done this in the 90s is starting to die out a bit and nothing in the zeros is really dying about up north is still strong. What they do is the committee people, they have a certain mentality, there are a certain group.
And they will only employ an imam of their own group.
And when it comes, they're going to feed things in his ears. And they're going to tell him, and he's going to come as well to try and keep them happy. Because the more happy he keeps them, the longer he stays in the mosque. And the bigger the nodes get when they go come in his pocket. And I've seen it with my own eyes. Right. So what he'll do is he'll get on remember, now Come on, people are dying, you know, people are dying with all sorts of issues. This drug is that, you know, dying, the people without Eman dying, there's people that are lack of taqwa, the schools that people are, you know, committing fornication, and, and all sorts of things that are going on. But he won't talk
about any of that he, whether he knows or not, he's going to talk about groupings, he's going to talk about, you know, the hobby,
the hobby, and the other guy on the other end of the of the street, he's got a mosque on the opposite in the opposite of this. And he's going to start saying, you know, this, this bread, Vika whatever. And then they both basically just doing bans and lectures just to hype the crowds. And there's not one city I'm talking about this is several cities, several cities across the country have been affected by this. And what the committee members do is they tell him, you better carry on talking about this, or you don't talk about alcohol, they know they've got business of alcohol, they say, you know, don't talk about alcohol. So that guy don't talk about alcohol for five years. They
tell him you better talk about parents rights, parents rights, so he's only every time you come you as a parents. Right. Right. And as a kid, I used to wonder for you as children, we don't have any rights. No, you know, it's almost like I discovered Islam when I went to madrasa for Wow, have some rights in this world, you know, like, I never knew, because the man would never talk about it. But you know, what, why he changes after five years is after five years, you know, he gets his passport. And we will know the story. He will skip one by one that is against alcohol or like, Oh, he's gonna say, Look, I've had enough of this. You guys can't tell me what to say. Right? There's a year, get
out of here. He's gone. Tell importantly, one, same thing. They'll tell him five years, they know they've got him and they'll make him say whatever they want. And look over the last 30 years. This has created a lot of things in our minds, which we didn't necessarily have to have. Now. This is from indo Pak, right? The there's other places in the world. Like, for example, if you had a Salafist kind of mind, they would have certain things in their mind to they're not going to allow, you know, an indo Pak guides to come sit here and say whatever he wants, they will employ according to what they want. And they say they say the guy's doing the opposite thing he'll come to he'll say,
he'll come in, he'll say this is beta, beta, beta, cheap, cheap, cheap, beta, beta, beta Shin, all of you should be that. I'm the only one who's Muslim here, right? So I want you guys to listen to me, I want to teach you the deen. And then sometimes they rip the community apart, sometimes they they get their followings. And sometimes they've been very strong, and some of them become too strong. But they're on the opposite opposite side. They know there's all sorts of things that this is allowed, and that is allowed, and that is allowed and everything else, you know, whatever customs and practices and everything you've got from forefathers, you know, it's all allowed and get up and
start doing the Mila and do this and do that whatever it is, they go to the other extreme. Now, this talk is about balance. What I what I'm going to try and say in this talk is my findings. And when I say my family, it's not it's not me myself, you know, this is from my few, my teachers, this is for my understanding, and I've got my own independent reasoning in this. I want to be, I want to be straight with you. I've got my own independent reasoning with this. Because if I followed any one of my shifts any one of them I wouldn't be balanced. I'm telling you very clearly this that I've had a lot of views. And they've had you know, I've had you know, I've told you this before that I do come
from predominantly a they were in the background, but I'm not a typical Deobandi. I'm not a typical devotee, I want to make that very clear. And amongst the the one the scholars that I've studied, and others being the urban the Sufi, there's been the urban the Salafi, and I'm going to talk about that today. And that's what what I not only that, but I haven't stuck to what my shoots have said, I've gone out and I've reached into other books. I've gone and I've picked up some of the books I picked up Sufi books are picked up, and I want to see what are they actually writing what are the issues and I've tried to remove from it all the hostility, all the blame and all the you know, antagonistic
remarks and you try and find out what are the real
issues. And then after that, why is my why my purpose of that my purpose of that is, here we are, we're in Britain. Okay. And look, guys, don't just judge me by the first 510 minutes, 1520 minutes of what I'm going to say, Please listen to the entire tool. And I'm going to say also, you know, Hickman line will take permission of me exactly what to, if they're going to take a piece out of the store, and separate it and launch on YouTube or something, they have to take permission of me for this particular tool. Why? Because unless you listen to my entire talk, please don't judge me. And part of this talk, I'm gonna say a lot in this talk. Don't judge me with part of this talk. Because
sometimes you're gonna, you're gonna think that I'm pro Salafi, and sometimes you're gonna think I'm pro Sufi, sometimes you're gonna think I'm anti Salafi, and sometimes you're gonna think I'm anti Sufi, right? So please don't take any part of this talk, you have to listen to the entire thing to make a judgement. And my purpose of this is, in Britain, in the West, in Canada, in the USA, you know, I've met a lot of a lot of individuals from all these parts of the world. And what I see is that I see we can live with parts of the world and I can, we can live with that part of the baggage that our forefathers have bought into these countries. And they've spread amongst us, I want to make
that very clear, because their baggage, some of their baggage, has damaged relationships between ourselves, we've got real issues between ourselves that we want to sort out, and we can't get through those issues together. Because we divided amongst ourselves, we all know, like, this is not a talk for you to just, I'm not gonna say everyone, by the end of the talk, you got to dress like me, you gotta have it on your head. You got to look like you know, did not know whoever it is, and look like Taliban, whatever. I don't know what you want to label me, are you I'm not gonna tell everyone to wear the quota, whatever like this and be how I Mo, you know, keep my size beard,
whatever. It's not about that. What I am going to say to you, though, is that whether you're a Salafi, whether you're Sufi, whether you regard yourself on one side, or the other side, or anywhere in the middle, you know, we've all got kids, our kids are in schools, and we need Muslim schools, we need to save them from the fitness of whatever is going on. You hear every day, every day that a young says getting girls pregnant.
Come on East London, East London, Heart of East London, the Whitechapel hospital, we will know the stats, the highest pregnancy rate, highest abortion rate is way abortion, abortion only Allah made her on his way is in the hospital. And who are they? It's the Muslims. Now, forget you issues about this or that. Come on, we've got real issues that we want to stop these abortions, we want to stop these unwanted pregnancies. We want to do not to the extent we want brothers and sisters to come to the masjid, we got people going to jahannam every single day, every day people are going to Jannah because medical note is coming. And whether you sell a Sufi we got real issues, you want to bring
them to the masjid whether he prays with his hands several times right roughly a day or he only raises the ones we both agree Salah is done. And if you can't agree to that you you're far from the extremists.
If and I'm going to make this very clear now, you know,
you got extremists and extremists on both sides. You got Salafi extremists, you got Sufi extremists, and they both stop the people in the middle from getting together getting on together and and coming to a common understanding. We've got issues that we won't handle, you know, how many how many of you know universities you've got interested you know, based grants right loads of you. You are every other day when I come for a talk you asked the question, you know, Chef, is it okay for me to take this loan interest interest based loan because it was interest free before we didn't Muslims to come together and make our own unique, you know, unique organization, Salafi, soufiane kid, our kids need
to go to university and they need to go without interest in our loans without interest. Who's going to do that? Who's gonna do that? If you can't get together who's gonna do that? We've got you know, we need mortgages that are halaal we need finances that are halaal we need to have you know, Helen meals everywhere. Forget the few schools that I've got to go on every single school. We weren't poor and just that they've got Bibles. In every single hospital you go to you will find a Bible that yes or no, come on. By the drawer, you open the drawer and you find the Bible that we want to put up next to the Bible. We don't want to remove the Bible. Don't get me wrong, let the Bible stay where
it is and they want to pull you know the Hindu scripture that they want to put the Jewish one they let them put every single one that they can when allowance to give hedaya will allow us to give him a die will come right so we we want to code and we want in every single hospital. The hospital Tell me guys, put your hands up. If you if you are with me on all of these plans upon we answer right Put your hands down. unless I've got all sushis here, or I've got all sort of is here. Right? You must be from both different groups and you've all agreed on this and I agree on this right now in order for us to do
get to this. Honestly what I want, I'm not here to create a group today, I'm not here to create an organization today. What I am here to do though is I want to remove some of the myths that are in our heads. I want to give you something which I it's taken me years to come to this understanding years, years of study, years of being pulled from one side to the other side. And I've got, I've had to use both sides. I've read books on both sides of sometimes too tedious until today, until I've come to my own understanding that this has to be somewhere where it's balanced. I'm not going to say to you, I'm exactly 100% balanced, okay, whatever I say, if you know me, Allah azza wa jal make me
speak that which is of the hub. And may He saved me from saying something, which is the bottom, which is wrong, but I want to say to you is that I believe I'm somewhere balanced somewhere in the middle. And that's, that's good enough, right? I might have a few things here or there that I might not have fully understood, or, you know, got to 100%. But I will tell you one thing, which is I'm not, I'm not a person who divides people. I don't I hate this, I hate this division thing. I hate this thing that you have to either end up in this camp or that camp, you can't be okay. With the best of both camps. I hate people who want to judge you who want to label you want to know, whether
you are of their party or against their party. I mean, it's almost like, you know, President Bush speaking, you're either against us or you're with us, you know? And what is this, you think he's got some kind of cowboy job or something, you know, Islam is something that allows given a beautiful religion, and you want to make a mockery out of this religion, because you yourself have ended up with a shape a few shapes that are narrow minded, and they want to take you down that pathway. So what this whole talk is about is honestly to find that middle path to find between the two sides, what are the issues we can actually agree on? What are the issues we cannot agree on, because a lot
of the things I'm going to talk about brothers and sisters, you will not be able to sort this out until the day of judgment. A lot of the stuff I'm going to say to you some stuff we can all agree on. And I'll talk about that. It's only a few things we could do. Like we already agree on those things anyway. But some stuff I'm going to say to you today, you can never agree on. And I want you to understand. The point is that the point is you don't have to fight and fight till death comes to you on these on some of these issues. You've got bigger things to worry about. Whether you believe that this is without that is better whether you believe this is wrong, or that is right, whenever
there's something that are clear cut wrong, and something that are clear cut, right. And in between gray areas. Rasulullah sallallahu said this, he said Albion will have Ravi, he said Helen is very, very, very clear. Who's going to be here and say, prayer is better. Who's gonna say that? Who's gonna say Salah five times a day is wrong? Who's gonna say no, I was gonna say that's Holla Holla is very clear. How long is clear who's gonna say adultery, fornication is Helen, who's gonna say, I'm gonna say that we know is haram, we know it's wrong, who's gonna say lying is okay, no one's gonna say that. Haram is very clear. But he said what
he said between the two things, you will find a lot of grace, you will find a lot of gray sort of areas, things that are, you know, that are dubious things that have got a two way nature things that are not so clear things that are ambiguous. And you have to you know, you have to find out where you're going to be and what I also want to say to you is
there are certain issues which scholars have got black and white clear evidence, there's nothing at all you can misinterpret in any way.
That becomes the legal injunction after that becomes something absolutely concrete, no one will disagree with you on that. But as there are certain things which are mustafi, you can do you can a scholar can think and he can say well, this Hadith, that Hadith Should I give preference to this hadith over that Hadith? Should I give parent preference over that IO with this one? What should I do? And scholars will differ and when they differ like this, you cannot you cannot say one is a caffeine and one is a moon, you can't say that. Just because someone might be competing with that. You can't straightaway say the caffeine, the caffeine is that, you know, this is these are unheard
of. And I want to say one other thing, which is
these days, you know, you know the way
you know the way you've got certain people who just who just like to get into the limelight of everything. There are certain people honestly, they've got a big problem. Their problem is they want to be known for what they know.
You know, in Harun Rashid Stein, and he got told that he's he's going to, you know, his, his his going to be really ill or he's going to his illness is going to lead to a certain certain thing that might be death. It might be it might be something that will kill him. And
everyone, everyone who's who looked at him saying, This is wrong with him is that wrong with until his minister told him it Mr. seller, let me let me show you what the problem is king.
And the minister came the next day. He came with a bandage around his arm.
So the people looked at him and in the corner
In the in the courtyard of the of the actual King kings palace, one said this is wrong with the one said you better take this one said you better have a bit of this and take bit of these hubs and one said can take the rest and one says something else something else until he came to the king. He said did you hear all that?
There's too many doctors.
There's too many doctors, there's nothing wrong with you. How are you? There's nothing wrong with you. You're telling yourself there's nothing wrong with you, you're gonna be okay. If you carry on listen to everyone. There's too many doctors who I want to say to you today is there's too many movies. today. There's too many movies, there's too many alarms, there's student issues. You know why? Because all of your shoes, a lot of shoes amongst yourselves. Any guy who picks up any book becomes an expert in the field.
I tell you one thing, but do me a favor, please if you think you because you know bits and pieces of certain hobbies, and you got Bahasa hot at home. And you got this, you got that and you think you can tell people what to do what not to do? Because you've studied a bit of cybercrime as a Muslim. So please do me a favor. Next time some guys going to the High Court. Yeah, just won't do a bit of just just pick up a book of law, a level book of law, right? And just read a few chapters of it. Go into the high court and say, Your Honor, I'm going to represent, you know, this individual here, just can't say that won't stand in front of him. Yeah. And please give me a free space free seat to
sit there because I want to watch how many tomatoes are thrown on your face.
Because you're the most biggest Joe public, who has got two tenths of a brain who doesn't even know anything about law who's who's just done a bit of in a few chapters of a level law, you think you can go stand in that code in front of the judge? You think so the judge will just give you one stare. And I'm telling you, you're gonna have to do stranger.
things, you have to clean yourself deliberately. I'm telling
you think you can come into the religious field of Islam just because you'd have to be a Muslim. There are only six books of Hadith. There are so many. And you're going to become an expert in the field of STEM just because you've got to be of study. Don't Don't fool yourself on it. Don't fool yourself. And I can't believe that the same people who challenge you today and they say to you, what are you quoting this hadith? Okay, okay, give me a minute. Yeah. So he takes his phone out? Yeah, he actually goes on to Google.
And he searches on Google. And then he says to you. Now that can't be right. I didn't find it in Google. What you didn't find in Google was Google Reimer law
is European law. What is it? What are you trying to say Google alehissalaam?
What is your problem? keys are you got this mechanism? Are you using this? Are you using this? Now this mechanism that itself is is not fully ready yet? You can't find every single Hadees not even if you did, what would you know about all the other hundreds of bodies that are around you will donate it so I will tell you one thing please do a favor. If you want to study religion study properly and go to the real people of knowledge and go to a few and inshallah you will you will find balance in that. Okay. Now, you're going to say to me Well, what about my own little bias or my prejudice is I must have in every person has some kind of prejudice. Now, to sum it up, I'm going to try and keep
this short to sum it up guys. When you you know put your hands up if you support man up and
that doesn't mean it's not it's not a sin easy. Go we have to be civil Liverpool
one guy pretty scared man you
you know who actually were a Liverpool supporter Chelsea or Arsenal, whatever you Okay, Tottenham, who actually studies every single player in every single team and looks at the history and says, You know what, I still am still an indecisive which one's the best.
Who does that? Who looks at Rooney and looks at some other I don't know, player, whoever is right. And he says that, okay, his tackling is better. his defense is better. This manage is better. This is the and then do proper analysis of all these top players and teams and all that and say, You know what?
After a long consideration, I'm going with you know, whatever it is Man City or whatever else it is Rob going with that one, because that one seems to be the best overall. Put your hands up today. If you definitely as we say this is what you actually did. You didn't are you laughing? You know, you know why? You laugh? Because guys, we'll get into that there's a natural prejudice. Either your family was in it, or your friends were in it. Or you're you came across it because of you know, whatever, you know, something was being played on TV and some someone somewhere was in
influenced you? And there's no way you can tell me you did it yourself? What am I trying to say from this, I'm trying to say to you that brothers, let's be honest with ourselves the same way you've done that, whether you came into the deen because of a selfie, or you came because of a Sufi or you became because of a kewanee, or legal, whatever it is, you will have a natural soft spot for that yes or no, it will happen. And anything they tell you, you're going to, you're going to take it in anything they tell you, you're going to take it in, unless you know you're one of those think tanks, and there's not many of them, I'll be honest with you. And you just take it in whatever they tell
you, you take it in. And suddenly that you know, any evidence they give you, you don't know any better. You suddenly you've taken all that in as well. And they give you they tell you the other party, they these are the things against them, you take all that in as well. And suddenly you find yourself becoming a backbone of this of this organization. So what I want to say to you is that, of course, I've had my soft spots. And I've had my background. But what I want to say to you is that Alhamdulillah, Allah blessed me with, you know, with going to another site where I had different types of shoes, and I managed to iron things out.
if you understand what I'm saying, You got a journey in this, I'm not telling you to change what you've got today. But what I'm saying to you is that Please be honest with yourself. If you're only supporting your group, because of your friends, or because of your family because of your background, your culture, your country, then that's not a real good reason to support them, you got to look at that idea. And you got to be very clear on this. One I studied Hanafi text, right, they can be biased, and there are Hanafi texts are biased. There are Salafi texts that are biased there. There are Sufi texts that are biased, and they will only give you one side of the argument with a
little bit of the other side of the argument. You call it a strawman. Have you had this theory of the straw man, you know, what you do is that you want to knock something down. Yeah, let's say if you gave me this wall to knock down, I'm going to be here all day to knock this wall down. But if you make me a straw man, if you make me a man out of straw, and you give me a little sponge in my hand, and I wet it, how many goes is gonna take me to knock that straw man down one or two goals. As soon as I get in this room, and we'll be down on the floor. Yeah, if you want to base the opposite arguments on a few feeble weak parts of their argument, what's going to happen, you're going to
smash it very quickly, go and allow them to talk, allow them to bring the arguments up. So what I'm gonna do, I'm going to summarize all this up for you, and try and bring the arguments for you so that you don't have to actually go through all of these years of study and so on. And after what I've said, Look, if you disagree with me, fine, call us. I'm gonna do my best to try and because there's always going to be people that will disagree with me, there's going to be extremists that will never, ever agree consult with anyone, no matter who they are. You got to understand that you cannot keep everyone happy. Right? So when I was when I was, you know, when I was young, my mother
told me, my father told me whatever they knew, and both my mom Allah, Allah have mercy on both of the souls they I mean,
they told me what to do. And I took it all in. Then I went to, you know, madrasa. The first mothers I went to was Dewsbury. And when I went there, this was when I had to, you know, sometimes you know, you got a computer, right? And you basically got a virus in there, you want to do a virus check. So you bring the software, Norton Antivirus, you stick inside, yeah. And find this many real threats and this many, you know, not serious threats, and so on. So I had to go through an antivirus check.
With all my knowledge, because my mother and father, they weren't scholars. They told me stuff which I didn't know I just took it all in. I thought this was the theme. And then I find out from our staff that no this is a Israeli require. This is a narration which you can't really accept. No, you can't deny it either. Just Just leave it. This is what you do. This is what you don't do. This is what you do. And I had to really learn the last 10 students of the Quran. I had mistakes in the last 10 years of the Quran. I couldn't believe this. I had mistakes in the way I was reading Quran. I had mistakes in my understanding of the deen. So I went through all of that this is it forget I'm gonna
I'm gonna wipe whatever it was not everything but whatever I need to keep. I'll keep it wherever I have to get rid of get rid of. Then I was fortunate after that to go to Nottingham, Melissa, when I went there, I had to go through another check.
What second check when your second check. Why? Because now I met one of my dearest chefs. He's one of the Rahim he's one of I consider him to be one of my greatest stats in my in my lifetime. A lot of the stuff I say my talks, a lot of the stuff I say my talks is from the years I spent with him, I got to spend with him for years. And for years close for years to serve Him and to serve, you know, come to him with breakfast. Come to him at you know, during the free time most of the students would go out and play football. I would spend two hours with him. I spend two hours on the one and a half hours as much as I could. I spend as many hours as you can calculate from the shift and I
Went through everything to deal with this shape. I even went through every posture of my Salah. I went through everything I was doing from the most nitty gritty part of my Deen and Alhamdulillah brawling in the mantra I learned from him. I don't think I've learned from any other teacher in my life. But this teacher was a bit more in the Deobandi sort of faculty. He was a bit more Sufi, more towards the Sufi, though, again, when I say Sufi, some kinds, he is Sufi, and they think,
Manchester, you know, once I had this friend, friend, Turkish friend, right, and I got to know him for about a year and one day I'm sitting in the car with him. And I just mentioned the word sushi. And when
he looked at me,
I said, What do you say?
You said, sushi.
Sushi is like, Did you really say sushi as a guide before you basically just jumped out is gone. never see me again. I said, Listen, let me explain to you what I mean. I said, when I say Sufi, I don't mean Greg worshipper.
You know, some people they think the moment you said Sufi, it means you go you go to the grave, and you say Allah, when you worship the Great, now they will.
And there are extreme suits that do that. There are people across the world that do that. But I'm not I'm not talking about and so I said, Listen, guys, I'm not a great worshiper. And I didn't say in that context, either. And I had to clarify exactly what I meant by the word Sufi. So what I'm saying is when I say this style was slightly sushi, what I mean by this is,
he was a person who was under a real real sort of, there's a difference between someone who's, you know, who's got the phony fakie type of Sufism, and the real one, and I want to tell you the difference, please. You got to understand it's a massive problem out there. There are shapes out there who claim to be Sufi shapes. Who will come and they'll come Haji Haji.
The curve is always frowning and quite frightening for why is your wife really told you have that bad day?
What is wrong with so so?
He won't hardly speak you start this part of my talk. Want to speak to you so much.
next minute, you know, someone comes with some money. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, Bring it. Bring it on.
And the way they do it is what it's like.
You know, the guy's happy, you know, the guy's happy, right? So and the thing is, when they stop giving their monies, and I've seen this with my own eyes on it, stop giving them money here. That is like the next do mahatva is about you.
The guy's gonna rip you, man. He's gonna say, bars, logo.
Some people, right? And you can say jenica busy this bow tie. Both conduce.
Right, he's gonna say on his Juma hookah, how stingy businessmen there are in his community. And all he wants is these guys to turn back and say, you know, Melissa, come back to you. And obviously, I'll bring you in there, I'll bring you you know, pull out, I'll bring you chicken, whatever it is, you know, I'll try and try and keep you happy. Now these guys, honestly some of them, they will write our wishes out. And all they want is money from it. They will they are people who, honestly, if you stay around them, and you know sincerely, you know, your dean, you will not want to be around these people. Now my shared model for him, he was not of this kind. In fact, he was what you would
regard as this being on the sooner but being at the same time with the soul. So all he was interested is in the cleanliness of the heart he was interested in and this is real to solve. Honestly, guys, I can give you a lot of quotations here, which I've got. And whichever, whatever I can give you, I'll give you but the brilliant brilliance about this this stuff of mine was that he wasn't into any of these extra things. You know, he wasn't there doing all these extra activities that are not found in the dean, I want to make that very clear to you. So this shape I took a lot from and understood that Suhana law, the way his conduct is the way he treats people the way he is.
Now, let me just give you an incident. Right. Let me just give you an incident.
He was in the madrasa and there was there was a student right, who was on drugs. Now he just came off the streets came straight in the magazine or some magical rotten apples. rotten apple came straight inside. And the teachers found our student found out that this guy's a druggie. So they all unanimously said we're going to throw the child right now with immediate
check, my phone rang upset. He said, No.
He said, leaving,
I'll take care of him. So I'll take care of him. It's my responsibility. Now this guy, and I won't give you the name. But this guy was we used to call him, Allah forgive us, but he's laughing at us. When we say this, we used to call him an animal.
This guy, he could beat him up, proper, whacking rushing to him. 10 of you rushing team, and this would be laughing at you.
And the guy would do this to that, and dodgy things, and so on. And you couldn't get on with him. But Mala Mala programs have said, Come you're in, you're going to stay with me. When it came. Now this one is now a 60 to 70 year old man. So he said to me said you like to wrestle. You think you're tough? It's a common resume.
This is a 60 to seven year old man who said to him about that kind of wrestling. So he said, Are you serious? And this guy's 18 years old. And he can take on three, four, you know, hefty boys if you wanted to. And when I say to him that Come on, let's wrestle and wrestle, even when manana got him in a position he couldn't get out of.
It got him on the floor, right? He got on the floor go in position. He said he just he just Saturday said can't get up. He couldn't get out. He couldn't move. He couldn't move. And each
one said he said you think you think the top they didn't read the government? And I thought, wow, this Oh, man.
You know, oh, man got me in a position. I couldn't get out what skills in his own manga and the morphisms have stayed with him. And he made sure that he came to him every day. And overtime monana looked at something that this this kid likes this kid like poetry and malasadas. So he took full advantage. He said, you start to teach him poetry, poetry, you know, poetry of a cabal, and galib and all these other ones, right. Some of them have some meanings. But he loved them. They both started to get into poultry with and he loved that factor. He came to Montana again, again, for more poultry.
Until over years of I listened, I had to go in there sometimes grab this guy, prep this guy and throw him out the room because he was wasting one last time to one in the night. And we're like, what doesn't matter what time he needs to go to sleep. He's to get a bank on two o'clock. photography. He's super 100 all way too fragile.
I joined online, you know, I won't say the proper proper, you know, Person of the sofas. He's not after your pockets. He's not offering anything else. I joined him in in a join his own man in touch with a young man at 19 years old. I joined him in touch. And when he went into ruku
my legs were shaking.
He was in ruku for 25 minutes.
he sued us like 25 minutes 20 minutes, his theorems are each 135 minutes. You know to recap might be you know, hour over an hour. And as a young man, I'm shaking so analyzing when you meet people like this, you think this is this something different? It just takes you out where you are all the time.
monitor changes individual this individual today is a scholar of the deed from a druggie, who was unanimously going to be thrown out from the madrasa. Allah azza wa jal has made him today a scholar of the D.
This is what this this is the Dean of the real shoe, who are unreal to solve who wants to just see the best of what you're going to give you what you want, but never asked you for anything, never asked for anything. And I enjoyed the meal when you cut when you came to his room. As an old man, he would face first say to you a salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. Take your hand, and then he would hug you. You'd hug you. And while he's hugging you, and he pressed you, he'll give you for three to $4 you'll say, may I make my husband this in his life? May Allah give him knowledge, May Allah give him good action. May Allah make him a pious person, right? And then he will release you.
And then He will say to you sit down. So you said that then He will make a cup of tea for you a
cup of tea for you and a cup of tea for himself. Once he's made a human let you get up. He won't let you get up. You sit there. 18 year old I don't care who you are. You sit there. He's gonna make the cup of tea. And he's saying all the praises he can have for you and make you feel comfortable. He puts a cup of tea in front of your cup of tea in front of you and then says, Now my husband tells me what brings you here.
Now tell me I know with the share, I asked everything, everything you could imagine from the stars. Yeah. Right down to what goes in bed at night.
When you get married, obviously
Anything you want, he will go into it.
Right. Now what happened is his own nephew, who's a teacher, another shake in the madrasa Shivnarine. He was a Deobandi, but they've been the Salafi, he was the opposite.
So now, and we have the utmost respect for these other chefs, wahala these other chefs, Justice fsid, he had read an entire 33 seeds. And he had taken all the best notes in his own seat, when he gave Tafseer of Bismillah. Just if he gave us, you know, Bismillah he'd be here for two hours. On is the knowledge was like an ocean. And you see in front of him, but don't forget, he is of the opposite. And we had certain issues that we now found a middle target with we said to Allah Fisher saying that, but I should say this, I'm gonna marry
you saying that? So yeah, but what about this? Oh, wow. Yeah, sure. What about this is really what is
she taking that she can bring into the shape and take the shape and the both, they both love each other, they both get on with each other, we get on with both of them. This my brothers is the D.
in don't take a delete to stab another person.
You don't just come across the book and you say super hard a lot faster than he did you see that the manga demon study.
He don't just take a little reseller a book and you say that you found everything, go to the other side, come see what they say. And don't come back again and go back again. Sometimes we had issues, we stopped, the whole does the whole of the lessons for three days. me my colleagues, we stopped with three days, we went in the library, we got all the deleted, we got Furthermore, we got more out and check nine who we regard as though been the most celebrated. He would be the person who tell us that, you know, this is my answer. This is my answer. This is my answer. This is mine. And then he would send us back to the library
for three days. And we went back to one of them bouncing back to him back to him back to him. And so this is this is where you understand the beauty of the dean, I want to tell you one thing, which is, if you meet you who have only been given one side, they're going to have more bias than the bias I've got rid of. And the bias some of these people I've got rid of who've gone to different types of ships. One of these issues was what can the dead hear you or not hear you?
It's a big issue. And because of this, you've got people who either might go to the grave, or they might not go to the grave. And I'm going to come to that issue later on. And we went through these issues and we debated and so on until we got to the bottom of the best we could get to Okay. Now when I went past this stage, it was just my shoe. You know what I did? I, in my travels, whether all my travel travels all my employment sort of times I've been lucky that I've been based at candlelight in North London, where we've got both we've and we've got a lot of you know what you'd call a selfies. And they're my brothers. And the real Sufi is the proper ones are the real self
visible guys, some selfies, you know, I can't stand as well, some Salafist, all they want to do is they just want to say to you, how much of Khufu you're in? That's, that's all they interested in? How much are you doing, how much fiscal you're doing? And that's all they're interested in. It's like, if you don't join me and my Shay and our four other followers, who are the only Muslims on this earth, then you are like the rest of the 72 sects and you will do bla bla bla bla
as always interested now, some of these settings are constant, but the majority of them who are okay, the majority, the good sushis I get on with them. Why do I get on with them is because I find common ground. What I like about and this is what happened to me is that I started to Now throw my ideas in front of all these different groups.
There's real Salafi, what his aim is, is that he wants to stick to the text of the Quran and the Sunnah as best as he can. And that my brother is a very, very good thing. Without that there would be no Deen without you referring back to the Quran back to the Sunnah without you measuring everything you're doing in the deen through the Quran and through the Sunnah and saying what is the Hadith? What is it? how authentic it is? Is it right? Can I practice it? Can I not practice it? Does it justify what I'm doing? Yes or No, my brother the Salafi is that are doing this without them. Our Deen would be in jeopardy. But at the same time, the real CEU fees are those on the salary the
opposite side. those of them who are saying that we've got these certain practices which we are able to do that are
Certain things that they've got, which they are doing, which has also kept many large parts of this woman alive, many large parts of human life and you're going to know where to do it. And at the same time when to say to you certain selfies, certain selfies or deviants, certain selfies or deviance, you're going to start to know where to draw the line. And it all comes down to what, after all these years of talks with them and looking at further books, and isn't that the biggest thing you got to decide is? How do you define better?
How do you define better? Anyone can say to be that, but there's different interpretations of data. Once you can define BDR properly. And you can come to a clear distinct sort of Mark between the right or wrong in the middle of what it includes what it doesn't include, then you can start saying, Okay, these practices, we're not going to accept, and these are the practicing practices that we are going to accept.
So what is this, think about Buddha? So many scholars in the past my brothers and sisters, so many of them have given definition of Buddha, I can't do justice in this short reminder.
of them. There's been notably mom, Shafi.
And there's been a mom shop. And there's been is is Dean in the salon, who's given who have given their own now, these are notable figures that are given the the definitions of Buddha
Rasulullah sallallahu, did say, and it's clear Hadees he said beware of new things, beware of new things. Because every new thing is a bid on every bidder is a deep deviation and every single deviation is going to end up you and you have in the file kulu Allah, Allah Allah infinite. Now did Rasulullah sallallahu when he said every single Buddha he meant every single bit or whatever it is everything or did he mean that the Buddha's which are wrong, don't follow them. And there are different two different types of Buddha's mm Shafi Rama, who is very famous, he, he categorized into two different sections, he said, there's going to be be the center, this
is going to be good, there's good data, and there's bad data is the deal. And the salon came later on, and he categorized it into five different sections. He said, there are certain videos that you had to do that, why do you have to do and he only expounded on what he said. He said, like what like number one, sir? He said like you're learning you're learning the Quran. He said, How can you learn the Quran without know without syntax? Without morphology, no student of Arabic can learn Arabic without learning, morphology and syntax. So you said that this is why this is something that is compulsory that we've had to add to the books of religion for you to learn that for you to learn the
Quran. And then he categorized into those things that are MOBA, mcru and other things like he said, for example, you know, you have to have modalities. If you look at the actual facts in real time, there were no such things as having so many madrassas.
So you you can't just say that, you know, with everything that comes new into the deen is better because then you will end up saying that the mother says I will be de rasulillah didn't have such building that was separate from the masjid in his time, the mother said was within his Masjid within his master, and that's how the deen was established. And even if he was separate, he didn't get permission to separate them in different buildings, and have, you know, a syllabus and so on and so forth. But then he says that there are certain biters that are mcru and there are certain bidders that are hard on the exam, Sam
you know, Sharpie came and he's he categorized it into nothing. He said, Look, there's no two categorises there's no five He said, No, you just have either you're gonna have bidder you're not gonna have bidder.
And he said most of these things, which is in the salon said, like the nylon surf and the mothers and so on. He said, these things are not without they're part and parcel of what you have to do in order to carry out the deen. So he said, he doesn't even come under Buddha. If you look at the works, you'll find this and you will have guys, let's be honest, you have so many different scholars giving their own interpretation of what it is. I want to give you what I've understood from my shoe, which I've also looked at the different delays and the differences and I believe, I believe this definition that I'm going to give you is going to be inshallah Bismillah abundance will.
Now bidder is
Rasulullah sallallahu. Mancera kondratieff Muslim. He has said man agradecer Fie. Amina has Malay seminggu for hora famous Hadith Muslim
man Desa. Right. Amina had malice. I mean, who knows I'm gonna have to write on this board is gonna help the soul travels with me.
Hope you can just see it.
right? Now, this hadith which the Prophet sallallahu, ala Solomon said,
is a very famous one, to give us everything we need to clarify what is good and what isn't.
Because it literally says,
What it says is that whosoever So, man, man means what? Say will be huso
whosoever will innovate, whosoever will innovate.
See means, in
this affair being the religion, this event meaning, the religion,
however, of ours,
is not licensed means is not a minha means from it is not from it.
It will be
Now, this is from Sahih Muslim
now, as we look at this hadith brothers, look, this hadith I just want to tell you, if you can see this hadith on the board, the man whosoever
innovates anything in this affair in this religion of ours is matter of hours in this affair of ours, which is not of it, it will be rejected. This is from Rasulullah sallallahu.
Now, when you say innovate or create something, which is innovative, something new, something you bought new into the team, what does it mean? It means something that was what was my said you created something, but it has to be something in the D which is going to be better. If it's not in the deen. If it's not in the religion, you can't call the Buddha. So for example in prophecy last time, how did they wash clothes? Guys, what was wrong with their hands? What do we wash clothes with now with a washing machine? Yeah.
Zanussi? Yeah, whatever you wash it with, Zanussi going to be better, they won't have food on the on the fire you do in the microwave, you're gonna call it better. They ate on the floor, you eat on tables, beta, beta, beta, beta, beta, has beta, you can't do this, you can't get on it. So for that reason, you the Hadith is not referring to anything that's being bought into any of our affairs, except those things in the deen. So it isn't the theme. If it's in the deen then you can say okay, now might be done might not be done. Now he adds on to that he says
whosoever will include anything in a fair amount which is not from it. So so it can't be something that has never had any example of it from before anything that is similar to it anything that grows you know, along the certain lines which was colossal awesome did or the sahabas did so however you have to if it's something which is clearly not part of what has proceeded before then was lasala said that it is going to be rejected now to explain this hadith now. Further because you I'm going to give you now the examples and I'm gonna I'm gonna get you to tell me which one of these things is actually without not you're going to tell yourself after I give you the the definition.
if for example, if for example,
somebody puts somebody bring something into the
sun means something into the
but they're doing it but they don't believe that it's part of the deal.
They don't they're not considering part of the deal. Like for example,
look at the salon time. What time is Salah? For the hatami
Gema Gema What time is the man 115 most most will either have one o'clock 115 or in the summertime they're gonna have you at 130 you will agreed on that. Yeah, without
a look, please don't switch off right now. I'm not saying it's better what I'm saying to you is, where in the world did you get 115 every single day exactly on 15th Gemma's gonna stand here wearing as soon as that.
No way. They didn't even have clocks today didn't have clocks. They didn't have clocks. They use the sun even then it wasn't like they had sundial clocks. It wasn't like if the shadow comes to this part is the more things weigh in but
they were looking at the shadow you know like you know the way everyone here is sitting here they're looking at the clock
2920 3031 get up guys get up guys. If the mom is dead is dead.
5556 Oh my god, the monster here.
No one will say Geez, I didn't do that.
So are you gonna call a beater? No, because do you regard praying exactly at 115 as
part of your deed do you say it's part of your deed? Yes or no guys? Come on. No, you don't you know how do you know it's part of your deed to pray Lord, part of the deed to do in Jamaica is part of the to do in a in a Masjid. Which is part of the deen Yes, yes. But to do 115 or to do 130 do you regard that part part of the D? No. So therefore have you committed with Ah, no you haven't because you haven't regarded that part to be part of the deen madrasa for example. Melissa starts nine o'clock in the morning
or eight o'clock in the morning. It has lessons at eight o'clock you're going to do so at nine o'clock you can see a general new fit at 11 o'clock
every single day they repeat the same timetable Is it better is not better. Not better Why? Because they don't regard eight o'clock and nine o'clock Hadith and fix that as part of the unison is just for convenience. What did I do for convenient just like 115 volt 315 acid is for convenience the community can find convenience in praying the the the Salah. So now when you go back to the Hadees Hadees is that if you innovate something and you regard it to be part of the V, then it becomes better. If you don't regard that thing to be part of the if you think now it doesn't matter whether I do 115 or 116 whether I do 121 3131 32 129 It doesn't matter.
We all know that it doesn't matter. One day if you if you're slightly late are people going to say stuff Hilah we sinful man stuff.
We miss 150 Toba, Toba,
you're gonna say that, you're not gonna say that. So therefore, we know that the people even know that they're not regarding 115 of our time in the massive every single day as part of the deal. So it's not be done. Now let's move on.
If for example, someone, for example, someone like you know, some time how did how did he used to do his tsp? How did he introduce the speaker?
with his hands, right with his hands.
Now, if somebody has started this thing about the speed, right to speak,
someone someone that said, Mr. Green was Oh, yeah, love it. Yeah, Mashallah, you turn the lights off, this will glow.
Now, someone, right is got the test v. Now, if they regard this test me as a way to make it easy for me to count, that's all it is. But only is that when I get to here is 33. When they get to here, I'm a 66. When I get to here, I'm a 99. And this is going to be 100. Right? So it's only convenience of counting, will this test be bitter, not bitter, not bitter. But if the guy says that this is part of the deal,
bah, bah. Now don't let the SP touch your feet as tequila, don't worry. It's the holy, it is holy, of course.
Got it from Madina munawwara even better, he doesn't know is made in China.
These guys, muscle these hats you look at it made in China made in China made in China.
if he thinks that this is part of the deen, is it better? Or is it not better? is better? Because it's this part of the deal?
So if I dropped on the floor,
if I dropped the ball, is it a sin? No. If I put my foot on, is it a sin? No, it's not. Because it's not part of the deal. It's not part of them. As long as you understand that the task is not be done. If you think that the task must be used. Like for example, I think a friend of mine told me he went to Turkey and
After the Salah, they finished the first Salah, and he was doing a speech on his fingers. And someone saw him doing the speech on his fingers took at a speed and he
he got the speed, right? I got to the speed.
And the guys, for everyone's got to speed isn't up to speed you do with this speed?
What now in that place? For those people using the speed? Is it better is not better? Yeah, because they regarding your part of the beam, Who in the world has told you that you have to make something of the beam, which is not part of the D, right? So if you want to use it, you don't want to use it, it's fine. It's only for convenience that usable. You're not saying that is part of the deal. The moment you say it's part then you enter that Hadith and you become bitter right. Now, let me give you another example.
When Rasulullah sallallahu said you're not supposed to innovate anything in the DEA and he said which is not from it. What he meant also is that if Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam his action of something was you know the Sahaba understood is
you have to consider it
is compulsory if his action was something which you knew that is so not the Sahaba regard it should not it should not if this action was something which is Mr. Happy, it's okay, if you do it. It doesn't matter if you leave it right at all, it's just a bit of reward, that's fine, you have regarded that as that. If it was meant by means that is completely neutral. Do it you don't do it. There's no sin if you leave it and there's no reward if you do it, it's just mobile is in between, you have to regard it as mobile. You cannot take something which is neutral MOBA and take it too far. You can't take something that is rajib and drop it down to you know, move back. You can't
extend the sooner I make you fall you can't suddenly fall and take the different level Do you understand? Because who sets the rules? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Sahaba understanding they set the rules so according to what we found from them that's what it means. One of the interpretation is malaise me know if it's not from it is not going to be right that for example, right? If now, if now Rasulullah sallallahu for example, did Rasulullah sallallahu wear a hat? Yes, he wore a hat The purpose of the law Harrison have a mama and a you know a turban on his head was the answer. Yes, occasionally he had it but Rasulullah saw was also a third to know was
what? No hat and no Amana
shake yellows in it, man. yellows in it. Man. I'm Damien before you know.
Guys Take it easy. All right. Especially committee members. Don't want this to be my last burn in this master. Please take it is
he had three Sooners how soon does he have speechless. Sometimes he had hats on his head. Sometimes they had a turban and a hat on his head. And sometimes he was seen without a hat on his head.
Now, if you regard if you balance all three cylinders, if you have all three cylinders in your life, and you regard it as sometimes you can have a hat you know sometimes you can have it without your hat sometimes with your hat sometimes with the turban, then you have followed what you have followed the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu.
But if you say now that he I'm not going to wear a hat
now don't want to look like them. You know, Sheikh Hassan Ali, you know, his turban, Sufi turban
don't want to wear it. Some people say all sorts of stuff. They make all sorts of stuff about you. What I'm gonna say to you is, if a person says I'm never going to wear a hat on these practices, he never wears a hat never wears a turban. Has he followed the sooner Yes or no? No. If a person says always I'm going to wear the turban. Always I'm going to wear the hat. Never. You know some guys honestly, some guys are misused with you. One guy in Leicester. He went for a haircut, right?
And he went to the barber. And he was scared to take his hat off. Because he's always wearing his hat.
He was thinking oh my god, I'm gonna take my hat off. Oh my god. I'm gonna leave. What are you talking about? How is the Bible gonna cut your hair without you taking out?
The same guy? I'm sure he goes to sleep at night with this
poor woman next to you, man. If she takes the hat off camera holder knows
the guy but I mean, come on. What kind of deal is this? And then some people find in. If you don't wear the hat on your head when you're praying is like you have just you you just didn't even pray.
You don't even pray. And there's some possible if you pray with a hat on your head. What? What did you do you put a hat on? Yeah.
You pray, what must I do this, there's two extremes. Now, the sooner the sooner is that you balance. So now you might think, well, every time you see me with a mama or with a hat on my head, that's true. But in my house, I'm always
And this this, this lovers, this service, this Juba, whatever we were, is only out of the love of the professor Larson.
Otherwise, this Juba, this Juba, okay, we, we find him as an example. And we love the province of Lawson. And if you follow something which you love the province of did, and if you want to frequently do it, there's nothing wrong with that. Look, guys, I'm not saying to you that you better take your hat off now. And again, otherwise, you're not gonna follow this. No, I'm not saying that. But what I'm saying to you is, when you're at your house, when you relax, you know, take your hat off, take your hammer off is a student of the Robertson Law Center, university, he couldn't take it outside, you can do it, it's not like you're going to be sinful. And at the same time, those
brothers who never wear a hat, never wear a mama you are not practicing, the sooner you are not practicing, the sooner, the sooner is that you balanced all paths. So what I want to say to you is that like the now there's been big debates on this big debates on this, but certain,
certain, you know, like, like, they looked at the law. And so the law who ate the cut to the God, not the God cut do? How do how do you rasulillah used to love the God, scholar god, he's loved that. So answer the law on who he would prefer to eat that. And he was asked why he said because the Sula Lawson likes it, I like it as well. Just to follow the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, that every single scholar says they're all unanimous on this, that you get reward for that. So when I do my ama, when I do my crotalus, I'm getting rewarded for it. In fact, in this country, where you've got people who've got no identity of Islam, if I walk around to be recognized as a Muslim, and I'm going
against my nerves, and I'm saving myself from sin, because I'm wearing this clothing I'm not going to be I'm not going to go into a betting shop with these clothes guys. I'm not going to walk in a cinema and say geezer give me a ticket right with his clothing I've come on right now going to go to the nightclub with these and say, you know, in a dance around the business clothes. Come on. Yeah. So this saves you from sin, it gives me Muslim identity. For that reason, if I were there and to follow the progress of a lot bigger of Islam, do I get sin or do I get a reward?
If I say every guy bad aware how to do bad, you never can take it off. Is that right or wrong? That's wrong, because that's not how he didn't make it compulsory on people that they must do this. It was an Arab thing that they used to do. So anyway, coming to my point is
there are certain people across the world especially some of the indo Pak they regard that if you don't use where some of Bangladesh you pray without a heart You're dead man. You're dead meat. They're gonna kill you is this guy without a hat? You go to some of the Arab countries you put one of these Imam and they look at you the thing you know, you deceive you this idea that right? extremes extremes. Let's talk about da Prophet sallallahu wasallam gave us permission to make dua yes or no Tell me. Yes. When he gave us permission to make dwad Did he ever restrict us?
He did say you cannot make dua you don't make dry like this. He didn't he didn't restrict us with time or space. Thank God except of course, you're not gonna make drying the toilet you're not gonna do the cover line the toilet, you're not going to read the toilet that's fine. But in every other place of the world anywhere you are you can make some sediment now when he told us to make dry he has no restriction you can make it any time you want. So for example,
if after the font Salah. I feel like personally, this is me on my own. I feel like making dua on my own.
Am I allowed to Am I not allowed? allowed because this lesson some gave everybody permission? That's fine. You're allowed. Because it's there's no restriction. If I one day feel that I don't want to do after my first prayer. I don't want to do that. Can I do that? Or must I do that? No, I don't have to do that. Right. I can just leave it if I want. Yes. Agreed. Yes. Okay. Now we come to the masjid. We come to the masjid.
And everyone's together. And the Imam, you know, finishes his prayer, the first prayer and the Imam decides he wants to do his own law, his his own law. He doesn't want the congregation to join him. Is that allowed? Yes or no? Yes, that's fine. If the Imam one day because somebody just told him so and so's ill please make dua and the man feels on one occasion or two occasions or a few occasions he wants to turn around tell the people please also make requests for da and he puts his hand up and he wants to make dua together is that permission Yes or no? Yes there is because there is no restriction to that was that Haram is not better. But now listen to this. The Imam says I will all
and his practices whether he says he or not, he never ever, ever, ever
Ever misses a single draw after every single first prayer for his entire life in his Masjid is that is that is that something which was was lost with it? Now he didn't know he didn't. And if he makes that practice so much so that they move something which was must have something which you get reward for the movie to a level that people now believe it's part of the Salah is really why do you got to do it without the Ummah God we pray the Salah we didn't do what can you remember? Is that right? If he makes his people feel like that, is that right or wrong? Wrong?
And if there's another Imam who never ever ever makes da da da da da da da never gonna never
dangle his deathbed. In Allah. Allah Raja, no, dada, sorry.
Welcome to the Mr. Praveen Salas, and what did he used to do? He salons and all the different iterations are there. He may do
on his own, he may dry with his hands down after the formula. He may dry with his hands up. He may dry quietly, he may draw loudly. He made it by sometimes having his hands down sometimes having the hands up. All right. Now, when rasoolillah has done that, and also sometimes he makes no draw. Sometimes he walked off straight after his salon. This is an entire su narrow sewer system D and this is our Dean brothers. This is very easy for us to follow in my message what I am, I've taught him this. And I said, Look, guys, sometimes I'll make something wrong. Sometimes my my individual wants sometimes, sometimes you just make your own. And if you don't want to do your own just do
Vicar. And if you don't want to do that, just get up and pray. Everyone don't do that. Just walk away. humble enough. You know, what's this guy? He's got an agenda he has to do God's not you made life difficult for ourselves. We've moved a monster have to watch a monster have something like a father. Same thing with the hat. If Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam did not make it compulsory that you must always have your hat on and you made that you stop the sooner you took the sooner to a wide level of first level. That's what's gonna make you do that. If you drop something which is further downwards, then it's going to make it bigger.
You can make that for example, let me give another example. After the firm Salah Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam on many of his salads used to pray, what is his Sunnah? What did he spray is his Sunnah he sometimes left and is sometimes prayed some of the Sooners he prayed more often and some of the Sooners he left more often those that he prayed more often we call them tsunami akkada and those that he left more often or he left quite a lot you call them soon again. So it means an emphasize sooner and and not emphasize sooner. These are prayers he prayed after the first Salah yes or no brothers. Yes. Okay, now, if you have a brother who gets them after the Salah, and he's doing
exactly that he's praying the Sunnah. Is he following the sooner the pasta lesson Yes or no? Yes. But if a brother says I can never ever, ever, ever, ever miss this for any reason.
If his belief becomes that
what will happen? It will become better if he makes like for example, some people think that I will probably sooner for Tommy sooner. If a person wants to make taraweeh fun.
He better know that it's only sooner. As long as he knows it's only sooner, probably sooner. I don't know try as soon as long as he knows that. Whether he comes every night he doesn't come every night then he's following the practice of the lesson. But if a person always always always always never ever, ever ever use this this there is no circumstance that I can ever leave it and if I leave it I'm sinful and so on. Then it's gonna become
a bit odd because his mentality is now messed up. right he's thinking in the wrong way but however, there's the other extreme the other extreme is there's a there are brothers now every single Salah after they get up and they woke up they never pray sooner. Is that right or wrong brothers wrong if you can't claim Quran Sunnah you can't tell me that without that's evident itself every single Salah you woke up you don't pray a Sunnah every single Salah you do the same thing most occasionally you want to call us una de la sala.
I will challenge you on this there is not so much that is a bit on itself. That's better because you are now as soon as you do you are leaving it now you are treating it as if it's MOBA. You're treating us as if you don't really need to do it whenever if you do you do it if your practice is something which is against us, we know the problem. So occasionally you should do it. Okay, you need to charge for the practice. Now coming back to that example of turabian I don't want people to use this and say look, I don't need to go through it anymore.
What are the factors
You've got doing please keep it up. I'm not gonna say to you last year, I'm taking my hat off now from now on out on Cape Cod. After demonstrate I'm not saying that to you what I'm saying to please remember your mentality has to be, you better treat it as as soon as as soon as soon as it is Roger biswajit. It is mobile, mobile, don't shift it. Okay. Now, if you do any of these becomes rejected. Let me give another another example. And you're going to work this out yourself now.
For me to
do any practice, let's say for example,
my father, let's say if my father passes away, my father passes away. And for me myself to feel sorry for my father, right. There's a debate among scholars whether you can benefit the deceased with drugs or not the debate
the Quran gives permission. The Quran gives permission that the doors of others reach the believers were in sort of harsh or pseudo harsher, which is a 59 Sutra and number 10. Allah azza wa jal says well Latina woman by being a guru or a benevolent
man, well, that is Alfie. Palutena Linda Linda Dina Amano. robina in Accra overwrite the Quran teaches us to say what say, those of them who who are who come after the disease, they make dua for the believing brothers who passed away before them. And the Quran teaches ALLAH forgive them. Forgive us forgive them,
for our brothers who have passed preceded us with a man and don't leave any hatred in our hearts regarding them, so this area has given you permission to make dua for the for the disease, any Muslim disease you can make graft for them. Now. If I straight after we've, you know, let's say what is the solar system the solar solar, so he prayed the janazah. Then he took them to the graveyard, then he buried them. Then after that he read a few is the hardest to say he read a few irons. Okay, fine. Rasulullah has given me a clear instruction i can do when I want. If at that time brothers tell me this, if at that time, I make
a dua, my father has passed away, I just put my hands up and I just want to make dua just a K randomly just at some time. Can I do that? Yes or no? Yes or no? Come on? Yes, I can do it anytime I want. Okay, fine. Now, if, for example, another couple of people want to join me in that bar, just randomly voluntarily, they want to join me? Can they? Can they join me? Yes or no? Yes, they can. But we started and we will make draw like this. Then the next few people, somebody has passed away, they do exactly the same. Somebody has passed what they exactly said, until finally what happens is, people start to believe when the disease is gone, you must you must hold Dr. together.
And if you don't do it, then you've done something wrong in the D, you've left the part of the dean out. Is that now with a yes or no? Yes. If my father passed away, my mother passed away. And I randomly voluntarily want to finish a hutmacher. And I want to return I'll do some testing, I want to give some subcon say Oh Allah to Allah, Allah give the reward of this to my deceased parent. Now, there are certain scholars who don't even agree to this, but there are a majority of them who do agree to it. Now, if you say to allow a law, pass it to them, they get the benefit of it. Now, if for example, I started that and a few other brothers randomly they do randomly they do voluntarily
they do voluntary. Is it all okay? Yes, it's fine. Voluntary, you do random is fine. But then comes a day when the community feels and the whole people feel man, on the third day, you better get together and you better have a chimney.
You gotta cook some food, and you better give it out to you not on the second, not on the fourth, it has to be on the third. And you have a hard time on the same day. You better get people together now what happens normally now you get people coming on the third day or relatives from father come together those who sitting there you know, who probably even haven't got will do or don't know how to do or they're sitting around and then the distributed these these patterns and these parts of the Quran and looking at it, and the guy doesn't know how to read it. I know half these guys sitting there. They don't know how to read that by reading silently.
Guys, so anyway, some of them do not really find some of those. Some of them are doing voluntarily some of them are doing it through pressure. And all of my thinking they must do this. They have to do this. They have to finish the hotline and so on. If it gets to that level, if it gets to that level where people feel is part of the deal, and they must do under third and if they don't do it, they have left part of the exhibit is no you
This is remember this now you know being realized what is better what is not better? Because we did Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam You know, this was something that must have if you want to read something about the to the disease. Now there are various Hadith where prophets Allah was not given permission to people to do something for the for the disease. Now, again, this difference of opinion, yeah, I don't want to go into that. But if you make something that is an absolute, you've put the third day malaise, I mean, who is not from it? Or some people the 14th day Oh, my God, the 14th day comes, you better get together again, do another hot tub, do another Sydney, everyone get
together? Do the heart and do the door. And I mean, within a practice. That's not gonna be right. You know, when my parents passed away, I told them, the family, the relatives came, and I told him Look,
you want to do on the third? I'm not gonna do in third. What's wrong with the sixth?
With the 14th? I think I'll do 38 what I'll do 4042 41. They said, No, no, no, no, no, no, no. In fact, we didn't even do it.
When we did, we did me and my brothers and sisters, we did our own individual thing, whatever you want to do. And we sort of donated, you know, something in my father's name, somebody in Bangladesh, we donate something they wanted go to Sydney.
No collusion is that you have to get a cow and a few cows and you have to do sacrifice, you have to give it to the poor people in Bangladesh, to have to do that to me that you have to do that. I'm about to do that. No. If I want to do it, I can do it. If I don't want to do I will not I will not do it. So to me, is not part of the deed. Now, if somebody wants to do individually how we're gonna do it, fine. Don't say it's part of the deed, don't make other people feel that it's part of the deed, that's when it becomes.
So you're getting the gist of it. Yes. Let me give you another example.
If for example, now, you have the, you know, you have the graveyard, right? And people want to go randomly to the graveyard and they want to stand there and like Rasulullah says he went whenever you want to go to great fantasy, say Assalamualaikum Yakubu, and then he used to stand there. Sometimes you recite things sometimes used to make dua to Allah right? facing the Qibla or to alignment or not to the grave to allies. My God.
Is that sooner or not sooner? sooner? But if I now go to the graves, and I start to not take candles with me
and I like the candles and I put the candles on the grave?
How I got that from the dean? No, it's not from the dean. And if I believe that you must take candles what happens with that in fact, why do I want to even take candles?
Why is people taking flowers that evening candle candle this people like making things that were not at all you know, put in purpose now if I want to for example I can use on their tombstone.
If I want to make a stone there by the head side of where my father is just a small one, just so that anyone who comes in knows where his body is resting just for that purpose. Is it allowed or not? It's allowed but if I want to make is such a big tombstone so big that make all the other grades look small next to him. Yeah, my father was the big man.
To show you a rich man.
You want to do that on a show? fancy this and marble and omake massive and is there any need for that? necessitava No, but even if somebody did it, you can't just say it's better unless he thinks is part of the deal. Now let's talk about weddings. Ah,
you go to wedding? Yep, you go to wedding in the wedding. right you got so many different things but you got to differentiate between custom and between what people think is part of the religion if people in a wedding ceremony if they start to you know you see these guys at the wedding right? Sometimes they look like Sinbad the groom like looks like Cindy battle Aladdin. They make him dress you know with our mama and he has shoes that are curled around
one another for you guys to make even wear shoes that are all color
like he's gonna have his magic coffee soon a flower with your bride on the carpet you know?
His his shoes be Donna.
Congress. You know why? Because he does he think that's part of the religion. does is it as bad as the religion? No. Is it better? No, but don't do it. Don't do it. You
know why? Because they're not all thinking it's part of the religion. It can be custom.
They can other custom. Custom doesn't automatically become Buddha. Please remember this. There's a lot of confusion and battles over this. Oh my god be that is B da da da da you walk on a red carpet as da da and you have some roses on the table. That's
Be there as well. Man, if you want to do that, yeah, we'll do that. There's some guys that really is hard. They're hard to actually I'm gonna have my wedding coding sooner. Yeah. So the guy said no sooner sooner, sooner. Yeah. And he's like, embraces everyone that comes right Marshall Alhamdulillah Brava. He's got he's got according to sooner. Yeah, fine. He's already told people in a card or he's given the message out. No box gifts, please. Why on earth did you get that from Russia? I when people come with money in an envelope, and they give it to this athlete, they give it to him. And he takes that envelope on his wedding day. Nice fat note in there. And he puts it in
sciences just suck law high.
Which soon as you find with sooner Did you find that on your wedding day, people are supposed to bring money in envelopes of money given to you right in the hand and you're supposed to take it these same brothers when it comes to a simple goal. Guys look into deep. Okay, you guys probably saw some said just get a shape or something sacrifices and feed Pft people, right? The guy will make an article, he will invite his close friends fine. But he knows and I know and you know, people come with gifts. Yes. And they're gonna come with money. And they're going to give it to him and he's going to accept it now where in the deen, did he get that that permission from if he's going to be
so hard on all these customs and he's gonna say everything is beta beta, beta beta, then he is taking his money on Attica wedding, which is a part of an Islamic practice which he has associated something with it, which is not part of the deen will become what? Without, but we're not saying that. We saying he take the money. It's not
because people are giving it as a gift voluntarily.
But if everyone who comes along and things that they must give it as part of the demo will happen without but if everyone comes along and things I have to give them the money as part of my culture, as part of our society is a bit Oh, no, no, no. There might be other things you can say wrong about that. Right? They can really wrong by that. But it's not gonna matter. For example. Now, some people stick 50,000 pounds 100,000 pounds a house on top and they start 20,000 pounds. I don't know what they go crazy about.
And it's become accustomed, especially Bengalis.
It's like, you know, my daughter's not so cheap. What's your problem using a Linux
guy who wants to do that? Now? If you want to do that, and they're all doing it out there? Is it better not? Is it better? Not?
Yes or no? Come on? No. Why does he think he's part of the Drina it must be 20,000 just like your 115 is the thing is part of the No, it's a custom is mongolica doing it. He's getting into it as well. He wants to show that his daughter is worth a lot. So you put 50,000 pounds on top. Right? It's a societal things wrong. It's wrong to put so much pressure on these young guys who can't get married is wrong. We know that that's a separate matter. But it's not better. Because it's not something which people are doing and they think is part of the deen you're innocent guys. Yep. All these other things, some of these customs. Now, if a custom resembles the custom of a different
If you do it as part of following that other religion that other religion is giving you all this older attempts to do this. That's wrong, not because it's better. It's wrong because the Sula philosophy has told us that you're not supposed to do things because you just following all the customs of a religious thing of another religion for example, Hindus, when they get married, they're gonna put that red. What do you call it? What you call a
bindi, whatever you call elliptica vallco. Tikka right on there. So now if some bunghole is doing because they want to follow the Hindu culture, right, wrong, wrong. If the Hindus like for example, you're not doing Salam in Bengalis. They do. Salam Yeah. So you do Salaam Salaam on how do you do normally Salaam guys, you do Salaam with hand to hand some Bengalis, especially when they just got married. They have to come to the mother in law and they have to do salon from hand to foot.
Because which culture does this come from? The Hindu culture comes from them they do it and they'll get the bend down and they'll go
now there might not be God now if they think if they think for a moment that that's how you have to make salami Islam, to your mother in law is part of our Deen What does he become without but if they don't, but still that adopted a practice which is which is resembles the practice of another religion. And it's in their religion to do like this and that has influenced them.
They're carrying that influence on without any reason when the pseudo philosophy via hand to hand, then it's wrong for a different reason is wrong, we know that
If in any way they think this is the way to do Salaam it will become better. If in any way this is a but, but however, guys, if
you go into the ahaadeeth, you will find that certain Sahaba came, and they came to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam they shook his hand, most of them just shook his hand, just normal Shake, shake shook his hand, but some went to the extent very few went to the extent they kissed his hand, it's in a Hadith, you will find it in fact, if you dig deep enough, you will find accepted a hadith where isabey went and he kissed the process of foot.
He came straight down out of the love the process of blossoming not only kissed process on foot. Now, guys, now you these guys, you know these other guys, you can say, you know, we found this a hadith and because of that we can touch the photo and we can do this. No, no, no, no, there's a big difference here.
When they did that to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did the prophets a lot of them then sit down and wait for the Sahaba to line up and put his hand up?
Was he was it a, you know, advertising his hand and along the bandana one by one? Or was it spontaneous? It was sponsoring one. If so, how Sahabi who has so much love came and he just did it. Now Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam he didn't say it is wrong. He didn't say he didn't say, you know, he didn't say you can't do this. If personalism said you can't do this and what happens?
If I wasn't if he said you can't do it what happens? It becomes something you cannot do again fine. But when someone has stayed quiet,
he allowed it he said quiet
then the permissibility is there. However, if now the solar system has 99.9 handshakes were hit. 99.9 handshakes are hand to hand normal handshake that we do. And point 1% or less than point 1% very very few someone spontaneous can kiss his hand. Spontaneous chemic kissed his foot
should mine yours. Salaam to each other 99.9% become the one where we kiss each other's hands or we just make normal Salam normal Salam if somebody with a shave they want to get their their admiration and they spontaneously gone you know just kiss his hand just spontaneously one off voluntarily without Nobita no because they seem to have it but if they all make it a practice man who's gonna kiss what part of the chef
you take is another history and and the other one take his point.
That honestly become that advocacy going forward. And the thing is look if it happened we promise a lot of them if it was if that was to happen that they will do the on his hand they will do you not think that the promise of some would be irritated by these Yes or no? Yes of course. He even said before he died he said don't turn migraine migraine into into a Masjid so don't do that. He was very careful of this. Now spontaneously some odd now if out of my love for my dad or for my mom out of love one of our to just kiss their forehead like Abubakar gonna kiss the forehead of the process and when he passed away or I want to kiss the hand of my father is allowed or not. Yes, even if I did
one day one day sponder even if I did kisses foot just out of respect as someone who's so great and so on. It will be what will be fine but if I made you a regular practice what happens
it will be better and you shouldn't make these things regular practice and some people have said these are just to the practice of law some some have said some orlimar have said it can be extended to certain shoe shoes but again I will be very careful if somebody came from this somebody came and kiss my hand get ready on my punches in the face
I will do it out if you start out getting up and
get ready because I'm not some kind of little you know movie or you know little idol here that you're supposed to come and kiss and you know make me feel
how wonderful I am what kind of shake is the honesty other I can't understand they'll stop and they'll you know one after the other they come in you can see the YouTube videos they're all coming they're like they're being read all that all kneeling down or bending down on Oh kissing his hand now will be so irritated. If that was the cow I wouldn't be I would honestly I would fight with those people if you have if everyone side that with me right now. You get the picture is certain things in the in the in the wedding. Certain things are cultural, if it's coming from another religious
Then it's wrong. But it won't necessarily be better unless they think is part of the deal. Now, if they in the, for example, in the wedding itself, if somebody was to just hire let's say they hire an expensive car, if they hire an expensive car and expensive thing, are you going to say straightaway? No, because they don't regard the part of the deal some people's high horses on the wedding day, you're going to say that be Donna is number No, but if they go and spend more money than necessary, and that becomes rough, what is that? Is that means extravagance? extravagance is something separate, it's another it's a separate, it's a separate category of sin. You're not supposed to
waste money wasted however you want just because Allah gave you a bit of extra money you're not supposed to do that. You're supposed to spend it rightfully. So that becomes separate thing, but you can't call all of this all of the all of this kind of data right? Now what we'll what we'll do here is we're going to break off for Voodoo and Russia is at 715 right? So Muslims, Indiana will make preparation for the satellite cell inshallah, after Salah I've still got a few examples to give you inshallah, we'll do that and if you've got any questions after that, please. You can ask your questions after that we'll probably be
I can't do this. There's so much that I wanted to cover in this. And I've only got part of the you know, will will be for time on July so you've got not officially get it get a bit tired. Okay. We'll continue efficient official
