I'm about to proceed
inshallah Today we will go over Cadiz number five of the
year and this number five is very related to Hadith number one Hadith number one you remember he's number one reported the Bukhari and Muslim from Amara de la Vaughn who in honor of in the year for in the medical memory in man our very early deeds are but by their intentions and for every one is what he intended what he intended. This is the Hadith talks about the condition of sincerity the first condition. The first of two conditions for the acceptance of any deed in Islam is sincerity. And the most important of the conditions is the condition of sincerity. Now the second part is
addresses the second condition for the acceptance of deeds is this hadith that we will address today inshallah, tonight inshallah, which has Hadith number five, the Hadith that is reported by Bukhari and Muslim from Asia about the Aloha Omen meaning the mother of the believers, Omar Abdullah Tonia is Omar Abdullah.
cornea is okay.
So this is the second part this is what is number number five of the binary now here it is reported by Bukhari and Muslim as well from the alarm on her own and the mother of the believers, Omar Abdullah
Abdullah, whether it is after live in his or her nephew, or because she did not have a son. So Abdullah is, you know, most beloved name so she
chose the love or that she actually had some of the scholars said that she actually have a child that was born dead.
And that is not correct. She did not have any children
born dead or alive. So it's either that she was called Donatella after her nephew, that is whose son Smith's son of the Lebanese of Eva is the son of is available on our web and as a matter of your buck. He says sister, by the way.
So Omar Abdullah, hi Sharon, Yolanda, our mother, the mother of the believers, said that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said when
he emelina have them Elissa men who for whom are men,
whoever innovates isn't the past tense, but it is a conditional statement. So you could translate it as whoever innovates man Africa whoever innovates fee and Medina have in this affair of ours, in this way of ours, in this Deen of ours, family that have been in this affair of ours in this matter of hours in this dean of ours, that which is not avid man is a mineral man as a mineral that which is not avid Hawa rod, then it shall be rejected. Then it shall be rejected.
So, one more time.
Can we repeat this?
So I said the
fee and Marina has that
man a salmon Who?
He who innovates in this affair of ours that which is not
COVID it's being rejected, that innovation shall be rejected, he will not be rewarded for any effort or investment of time effort
into this innovation into this innovation. Now, there is a variance report. In those variance reports, don't take them lightly.
Because when we say there is a variance report, don't think that this means that, you know, the narratives are confused. So what are the parts of the Hadeeth in a certain way? Why don't report to them in a different way, or is himself reported at one time, in one way, and in a different time in a different way? How the forgetfulness because those variants reports have pearls and lessons and benefits that are used that are great. The variance report by Muslim reports by Muslim from Isaiah as well is Menachem Isla harmelin laser la morona. For Hua mannheimia, Ramadan, he who does an action
laser, Avi, Mohammed Ahmed la sala de una, that is not in accordance or in agreement with our way
it shall be rejected.
So what is the difference between men after he who innovates in this affair of ours, and matter how good 100 and a salary, he doesn't action that is not in accordance with our ways in shall be rejected? There are two additions in this very entry Port of Miami Romulan laser lady a marina, because someone may say, I did not start it and you, I am following shape so and so.
Then it will be said to that person, that if this is an innovation that someone else started, but you're just following it, it does not exempt you from the guilt and liability of innovation. Because men are happy Ramadan, he who does an action does not say that you innovate it to yourself. It just says that you did an action that is not in accordance with the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The second The benefit is that whenever we talk about this hadith man active Sufi emelina have MLS I mean, who
would only limiting ourselves to elevations, but the Hadith is actually larger than this and implications. Meaning what? Meaning it doesn't have to be an innovation, it could be a sin, it could be this would be an act of disobedience, that the person did not intend to, you know, to draw closer to Allah by doing it. And innovation, we will get to the definition of innovation now. But the innovation is done by someone who wants to get closer to Allah by an action that was not prescribed by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. But sometimes you do things that are
straightforward sentence, like deviations from this area. So if someone, for instance, marries a woman without overly that is doing a act
in this accord, or in this agreement with the way of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, if someone and there is like some 50 disagreements, but we're not going to get into the nitty gritty of that, so that we don't lose the bigger picture. If someone you know, trades during the whole but the drama that is doing an act that is not in agreement with the way of the preference of themselves or buys during the time of the football and drama, then that action is not in accordance with the way of the Prophet sallallahu is there are other examples. If someone steals money to make Voodoo that is doing doing something that is not in accordance steals clothes that dress or to cover up with when he
prays these are all issues that are addressed in the detail.
Separately stepmothers like someone who insists to faster for instance, on the day insists the fast on died day. Oh, that's not it that is not in accordance with the way of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So it is not just limited innovation. It is basically about doing anything that is not in accordance with the way of the Prophet sallallahu yourself.
Okay, so what is the definition of metta
In any member's baby mama crafted a very beautiful definition that was accepted by the scholars afterwards that other scholars members of me is an eighth century scholars from the Maliki melfa.
He crafted this definition that was found to be a very good definition forbidden by the other scholars.
He said that in beta Polycom of Tara, Dean Toba, he saw a minimum of about a quarter below the bar, or close to that. So by the time of Tara Dean, is a way that is invented with regards to their religion, concerning their religion. So way that is invented innovative, concerning their religion.
To the hysteria that resembles the correct one that resembles the correct guidance, but it is it is not identical. It looks like it's a look alike. But it's not identical.
Takara vilazodone. It is intended by it to draw closer to Allah one intelligence by doing it to draw closer to Allah. This is an important definition, because it is accepted by the generality of the scholars from all developed after slightly, you know, put that definition together, it does not mean that the concept was missing for eight centuries. It just means that the one who put the finishing together because the finishes are helpful.
But scholars, the earlier scholars, we have the concepts in their mind. So when we say that the members are valuable, the book could result, in
an end considered to be the founder of a sort of chapter because of
the first book, although it does not mean that the Sahaba intervene in Tibet, Tibet, he had no clue that the Mayans it just means he puts it together, you know, in a separate science.
So you know, there's also amendment the best the first one who put together or crafted it'll come out in the legal Maxim's, we'll talk about it the best he was one of the greatest Hanafi scholars from the third century. And then came an immigrant country. Also another great economy scholars remember that the best came up with 1711 country added to them, the region about 34. When we say that they found that this, we mean that they they just put this together as a separate science, we do not mean that it was lacking before in the Sahaba had no concept of of this, but we just mean that these are the people who put them together in the form of an academic science.
To remember something you put this definition together, it helps us a great deal, because when we say beta and beta alpha 2015, it's an innovative matter concerning the religion. You said concerning the religion, you relieve us from a lot of argumentation with people who come and say, You know what, we'll drive cars and airplanes. And listen, we're not talking about any of that. We're talking about innovations concerning the religion.
curriculum without fit D, it is not an innovative, it's not an innovation, concerning you know, buildings or means of transportation or anything containing the deed to do. So by suraiya. It looks like that sharp anyway, because people do not necessarily or usually just make up a whole act of worship out of nothing from scratch.
But they ascribe amount or number or place or time or cause for this act of worship, the altar seems modified. So there would be resemblance to the way of the promises of them. And it may look like a cylinder. But it's actually not from the profits of the server.
So by suraiya, yoke submitted more verbally at the corporate level,
but by routinely doing it, by doing it routinely, one intends to draw closer to Allah. By doing it routinely, doing it routinely is very helpful. Because if it just comes to your mind that I want to sit down and say sakalava vilavi of 100 750 times
a 1% that, you know, I'm gonna select that.
And then I say to myself, let me sit down and say some kind of law or behind the wheel.
Remove any of the 750 times, would that be a problem? No, it wouldn't be a problem. Because if it is done randomly, then it is not a problem. You're not making as soon as you're not making routine of it just happened so happened to you that you want to sit down and say, so how do i
1000 times 10,000 times as much as you want.
But once you say
that I you know, after every asked, I would say some kind of a little meme over 100 700 times, then you have made it as similar, then the question that with the question that is warranted, and appropriate at this point, is to say, Where did you get this from?
Like, is this from the prophets Allah Southern? Did the Prophet ever say that you say it's 700 times when you get this wrong.
But the last part of the definition is also very important. Last part of the definition is also very important, because it says, you have to submit a Mahabharata 31 intense by routinely doing it to draw closer to Allah. But let's say, we said,
let's have, you know, PM, here on Saturdays, for, you know, a year for you for some extended period of time. Let's have the M on Saturdays.
Then the question, then the appropriate question is, why Saturdays?
If the answer is, because that is when everybody is on, you know, is off, because Sunday is off. And that's where everybody can make it, then the response is, you're good, you're fine. That would be okay. That would be fine. Here, you're not basically claiming any, any virtue for
pm on Saturday night.
But if you say, because Saturday, is a special day, or if it's because people do this, it would be very easy if people say, because, you know, because of some logistical purpose, we were doing it this way because of some of the purpose. But once he tried to come up to concoct, you know, justifications, and you say, because you know, Saturday was mentioned in this, or our this was, and people tried to do this, then you then you brought trouble on yourself, which he did not mean, you cannot just say he could have just said, because that is the most convenient for the people. And we're not, we're making it clear that this there is no version for pm on Saturday, but it is the day
that we could all meet.
So that is a beautiful definition. Now, there are two different types of data, there is a better last layer, which is the original data and without further idea, which is the partial data
layer is when you basically concoct a new act of worship altogether. And that's three.
But the other one that is more common is when you modify something. So in order for the act to not be better, none of these six issues
should be innovated a seven, will dense since when God
will cave was the man when Mecca setup is the cause of this worship,
the cause of the worship, what is the cause of the obligation of fasting in Ramadan, the sighting of the moon.
So if you say that every time I walk into my home, I would pray to Allah cause then we will tell you, whoever said that, you know, walking into your home is a sub cause for the preference of two rock stars.
If you do this, you know, randomly if you do this without claiming any virtue, if you do not attach a Sabbath to the act, and it just so happened that every time you walk into your home, you pray to records without propagating this as a good idea for other people to follow, then you may be fine. But don't make justifications for it. Don't attach, don't can don't make it look like you know, going home isn't 72 cars for the train tour accounts.
So the setup has to be in accordance with
Which is basically the essence of the worship has to be in accordance with a certain that don't make up a new act of worship altogether. That is the genes.
that in addition to the genes, the cave has to be in accordance with the center, the cave, how you do it has to be in accordance with this report is after tm. And to do this after report, he can switch the order, you can start making them Do you know, by washing your feet, you have to follow the order, you have to follow the cave, the how
the form of the act of worship, you don't change the form of the act of worship.
And then we have a club card, which is the amount, the amount, you know, so alphaserver is for rockers. So as a voter is for Rockers, you can't make it five, the singer before government is for rockers. Now, if you play eight records after the you came early, they made the exam and he kept on praying to pray you pray, that's fine. But once you tell the people that it is preferred to pray six hours after, then the question is Who told you we know there are two hobbies? Regarding this, you know, these have side honey phenomena. And they don't mention the six before though, one is four and one is to, you know, 10, or cows everyday routine, or 12. We don't have any 14. So that is the
amount. If you say I will say some kind of a beer in
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us to say, you know, to make have gotten sober, you say some kind of love and some decent kind of live, Avi, you say that 100 times. Now the profits of some of them left it open for us to say more. So if you save 200 times, that's great. 1000 times, that's great. But if you start to propagate in different number instead of the people 225 times,
then you then that is an innovation, if you start to propagate a different number, the number of the professor's on gave us is 100. And if you want to add add as much as you want, but do not fixate another number for this lick, except what the prophet sallallahu Sallam have mentioned. So, that is the amount and then we have the two other things, one of them is the place and the time. So do not ascribe fate like virtue for any particular time, unless you have approved do not ascribe virtue to any particular place, unless you have approved that is the essence of the heat bath. There is no heated environment, which is the single out in worship and there is the heat develop which is the
single Prophet Muhammad SAW someone out in following Him and you know, walking behind him, the you know, exactly behind the prophet SAW sadhana that's that is important. That is the second part of the shadow Allah, good luck. cama de la, the first one is the heat of a battle and the heat of worship. The second one is the Hebrew devout
obedience and following the Prophet solos.
So, he is the only medium between us and Alaska, Canada and the divine and the legislator. So any other information that you
claim that you bring up?
We it is not from Allah subhanaw taala and no one knows what a lot likes and dislikes.
Allah or someone that was
blessed with the message or profit.
Okay, so, the problem with VEDA is what?
After you finish the definition of weather and the classification. Now what is the problem of
many, many problems?
One of the problems is
that we don't really pay attention to is that it's an insult to your sincerity.
Many people think that sincerity and correctness are two separate realms are two separate conditions. They are not
interrelated, they are extremely interrelated and interdependent, if you're sincere, then you would be trying to be correct. If you truly want to please a lot, then you want to please a lot according to what he desires, what he likes, not what you would like.
And if you want to know what he likes, then you must know it from the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, and it has to be in accordance with the way of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam. So to claim sincerity. And to say that I am being sincere, without correctness is a paradox, because there could not be true sincerity. without, you know, the attempt the effort, and certainly
does not burden us well beyond its capacity. What is required, the view is what the attempt the effort, you know, you put effort into finding out the truth. And following the guidance of the preferences of whether or not you arrive at it, you're safe, because you put the efforts in theory, and you wanted to follow the way of the promises on whether or not you arrive at your safe.
So that is the first problem with innovations and not being very fine in your worship. It is basically you're just collecting
anything that shines and you think of everything that shines is a gym, the true gems are the ones that were prescribed for you by the Messenger of Allah sub allottee. And not everything that shines in front of you.
You know, something like someone wants to go and buy his mother a gift.
You know, for instance, you want to buy your mother a gift for a lot.
someone may be rich, he goes to Macy's, and he buys like the biggest thing that he finds in front of him, he doesn't have much time. So he walks into Macy's, and he bought he finds something that's big and expensive, and so on. And he takes it grabs it and goes home, Mom, I bought you this, you know big
without much thought.
a different person may say to me sit down with himself and say, What was my what was my mother was the most? What would please her the most? What color does she have? Like? What this what that What? You know, and he tries and he you know, ask some drops in questions, you know, hints to her, tries to figure out from her friends from her, you know, from his sisters, etc. to figure out what would what would she like the most, and even if the gift is delivered, but that effort is an indication of sincerity, that's correctness. You want to please unless kanagaraj so you're working hard to figure out what would please him the most. And no one can tell you this better than the prophet SAW the
the second thing. The second problem was was better
is that it means it's an insult to the
macam and newbies
to the station and ranking of the proper server. It is basically a betrayal of his legacy. It's an accusation of the Prophet that he did not really convey the message completely, or that the message itself is incomplete.
There is a very beautiful asset from Informatica Rahim Allah, a man came to an email and he said to him about the lab in a natural color or above the level of illmatic so this man came and said to a medic above the lab, where should they make a gun from and even medic said to him Minzy play from his or her masala from the afterlife or from where the Prophet sallallahu Sallam made
out of a in your head why North Lima Milan mustard mineral cover I want to start my Hanford had from domestic the neighborly by the grave of the profit cells and cool or close to the grave of the premises and this is where I want to start.
So remember, Eric looks at him and says Latifah Nef. Sarika fitna. Don't do it. I fear fitna for you. If you're the to me the team misguidance and deviation for you.
As an American was shocked and set the nomadic way you fit within TIBCO here I'm Ian azido. Which we carry talking about when I'm adding to my shop. I am not subtracting from my home I am adding miles and making around before this around
So what's the problem? You know? So you give him a very beautiful answer, a very eloquent answer and he said to him, where are you fit nothing till where you fit in October, month one and Mecca sebata illa hierin Casasola,
which fitness greater to think that you beat the profits are selling for something good.
He may have from the flavor.
If you are doing it if you're if you're doing a little bit extra
to think of it, this is a more virtuous to do to do it before the price is then you're causing yourself a great fitna by thinking that you beat the professor or someone does something that's good, that he fell short.
So that is the second problem with
the third problem was better, is that bigger is the antidote of center.
data as the antidote of center. No one of us regardless of how great you are, and how pious you are, can do all of the sudden that the process of sudden used to do you think like a book of any moment, Assad, Yama, Yama, Laila actions of the day and night. And you you acquaint yourself with, with what the prophet sallallahu Sallam used to do,
not just the mere acts of worship,
but also visiting the sick and helping the needy and doing all of these things. Because these are important, because if you if you isolate yourself, and you just do the Quran, salah and cm, and you're looking after your kids and their needs, you're not looking out for your neighbors and you're not helping your society and so on, then that is certainly you're not being you're not you're not conforming to the way of the prophets Allah said, but the Sunnah of the Prophet was the way of the practice was that,
you know, it will take you 10 times your wife to just do what not 10 times more to just do it then forget about sincerity, we're not talking about you will never go to the same dedication and devotion, but just to do the actions that he did, it will take you
10 times your life. So now when you innovate anything you're subtracting from the sun, because there is already limited time. So you either do something or do something else. So whenever that is why the righteous predecessors used to say that whenever a bit rises as Seneca dies, because there is really no time to do both, so you have to choose.
Okay, the other danger of vidaa the other things are better is
is that we can never, we would have never had that have not been a huge emphasis on fighting bid on and rejecting bid on in the earlier generations from the time of the prophet SAW. So we would have never been here together. What what we would have never been here together. Because during the time of the Sahaba, and the debate, and so on. Islam grew this Muslim state group
from China to end the Newseum.
No, no internet, no telephones, no Telegraph's no nothing. So, if every people started to do their their own thing, you know, which is a little bit different from the other people, we would have not recognized each other's Islam. Now, to some extent that happens a phase that to some extent, but because of the emphasis on you know, the evil has been on fighting during the earlier generations, from the time of the prophets of Salaam onward, we are still protected to a great extent
Have you done any revision shopping?
Anyone have you converted to Islam after some revision shopping?
But with any theory,
if you have seen that the the amount of difference in practice and creed sometimes between the different denominations can other religious groups, you will be amazed.
Sometimes it looks like different religions completely, but we are still able to be in the same place and to pray together because of this, you know, emphasis
That was made by the prophets, Allah sellers, on the importance of following one way, one path, the path that he sort of delineated for us very clearly, and very beautifully.
The last thing, which is, and I know I, I don't want to take too long, but Forgive me.
But the last thing is that this hadith is beautiful Hadith, which is considered the Bible scholars to be the second of the, the two hobbies that are foundational hobbies, in our understanding of Islam, the farmer and honey size was reported by whom, by is sort of the other one.
As you know, I've never been labeled feminist or anything, but it is true that we have, that we have
really suppressed the potential of women. And our girls have less pride in being Muslims, than our boys. Because the way we treat our girls, the way we limit them,
the our expect even our expectation of them is some is
different. Like, you want your boy to memorize the prayer, you work so hard, it's so hard to get your boy to memorize the prayer. But the girl if she memorizes goes, that's fine. You know, human rise to that is great, and so on. And so different expectations different. But the right spirit, this is our set of the Sahaba don't violate him.
Things were completely different. Like when what are some of our demands? I mentioned 300 teachers 300 female teachers of their own. Could you please name for me 300 female scholars now?
Could you find any any of the Messiah that could actually name 300
scholars that he directly received knowledge from, you know, female scholars know. So I really urge you as a community that in evolution, you are a community and evolution as a community and evolution I truly, truly urge you to keep this in consideration.
Because it is extremely important to
have a first poetry by half of Ibrahim he said the Roma Drosophila now the power that the shotgun play, but rip, the mother is the school or each mother is a school by herself. If you prepare her well, you will prepare it for sharp people
that are of great essence
