On the authority of the mother of the faithful, Aisha (ra),
“The Messenger of Allah said, He who innovates something in this matter of ours (i.e. Islam) that is not of it will have it rejected (by Allah) [Bukhari & Muslim].” Another version in Muslim reads, He who does an act which we have not commanded will have it rejected (by Allah).

Spindler follow him hungry.
Hungry Allahu wa kafa Saravanan Eva Hilary Mustapha Susana CGT Rosario Hartman ambia Ali Hill Ischia was hobby he led to another.
I mean, Ameer Abdullah he, our karate Allah Allah.
Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam my data fee emelina hada mellissa min hufa who are Ogden raha Hari are Muslim, or fee white in the Muslim man Amina Ahmed and Lisa Ali am Runa for
the Hadith is narrated by Alicia de la putana, who stands as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
Whoever innovated something in this matter of hours, does not have it will have rejected by Allah subhana wa Tada. And another narration that Mr. Muslim Rahmatullah Holly reports. He who does an act which we have not commanded, will have it rejected.
This Hadith is the fifth Hadith from the 40 100 collection of human No, we don't have to lie.
And as we heard from the Hadees, that it is narrated by meaning are a shot of the Allahu taala
I shut up the Allahu Allah is one of the wives of the prophets that allamani he was sort of her birth name is I shot the daughter of Abu Bakar at a me I
already have put a Shia
she is the third of the prophets of Allah Juana he was said she is the only wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who previously not widowed or divorced, she was on a divorce or a widow.
Her cornea the name she commonly was known by along with Ayesha is Omar Abdullah.
Now, the cornea generally is an attribution that you make towards one's child while column added individual. So we talked about the cornea earlier on in the previous ahaadeeth, because many Sahaba had a cornea. Now the interesting thing about eyeshadow, viola, Anna and calling her mom dilla is that anyone that has studied her life, even briefly or even knows a little bit about her one thing you'll know is that her entire life she was only married to one person and that was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And during her 10 years with the prophets that Allahu Allah he was sent him. She had no children with the prophets of Allah.
If she had no children with a deficit, a lot of it was sent. And then the question is, how is she getting this name Omar Abdullah, the mother of Abdullah. Now one scholar by the name of juvenile Arabi. He says that the reason why she was called Omar Abdullah is because she had a child and which resulted in a miscarriage so she'd never delivered the child was bearing a child which resulted in a miscarriage. Therefore, she was called Omar Abdullah.
Gaming the child that she miscarried, but a majority of the scholars on a large with scholars, they refute this heavily and they say that we find no reference of marriage from any of the wives of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, and particularly not with eyeshot of the Allahu talana. So there must be some misunderstanding here. Majority of the scholars they say that she was given this name Omar Abdullah by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. She once said one day said on messenger of Allah, I would like to have a cornea. Everyone has a cornea. So the problem is that a lot of it was something called Omar Abdullah. And the reason why he called her the mother of Abdullah is because I
shut up the alarm on her sister usma had a son, and her first son's name was Abdullah.
So she was the author of the loving loving, and she treated up the loved ones of Ada like her own child. And in some narrations, we also find that she brought her into a home and she looked after her like our own child, so therefore, she was called mobbed in LA.
She was also known as camino, was also known as Siddiqa. The province of Allah while he was setting up tires, what are called her ish, are shorter form of Ayesha. In this Hadith, you know, we don't have to lie Holly as he rings it, the first attribute he uses. The first attribute he uses to call in the province of the lohani was saddam is an important one. He calls her meaning the mother of the believers. What we learn from this is that the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wasallam, were the mothers of the believers. Well, as well as you who may have to come that his wives were your mother's. That's why whenever we refer to them, we call them our mothers, the mothers of the
believers with respect and with honesty from our heart that we respect them the way they should
And the way they deserve to be respected because unfortunately there are a group of people who are known for disrespecting the wives of the Prophet that along line he will send them and that sort of an attitude of being disrespectful to any of the companions let alone the wives of the Prophet that along line it was that um we the undersigned know Asimov, you that to be absolutely unacceptable. And we cannot tolerate that sort of disrespect to someone who we proudly call on when we need eyeshadow the Allahu taala she accepted Islam from the early group of people who accepted Islam.
her nephew owed weapons obeyed who was the younger brother of Abdullah and is obeyed. He says that I shall be alone and I was married to the purpose of the law, it was sort of the wife of the Prophet stood alone one day was said, um, she one day told me that I don't know of any day that I ever saw my parents following their religion other than this religion, then, then this Islam, because she was born in Islam. She was born in this religion. Therefore, she says that when I gained my consciousness, and I saw my mother or middle man, and my father, Abubakar, I had never seen them on any religion other than Islam. And she says that they will not pass by but in the beginning and end
of the day, the profits that allamani was sent them what come to visit us at our home. I showed you a long line How was one day asked how she was honored, and how she ended up marrying the profits that allamani was that of eyeshadow, the lohana explained by saying that one day The Prophet said aloha day was set him saw a dream. And in this dream, an angel came and he presented to the province of the longlining. He was sent in this beautiful frame that was covered in a silk garment. The province of Allahu alayhi wa sallam was then told that this is someone who will be one of your wives, and that garment was removed from that frame. And inside of the Prophet sallallahu it was set
himself to eyeshadow, the alarm on that fader and tea here. When I opened up the garment from the frame, I saw that it was you inside it. And then Allah subhana wa tada facilitated the marriage of eyeshadow, the alarm on what the prophet allamani was sudden, I started the Aloha and has a life with someone who was very close to the pups of Alon he was someone who was very dear to the Prophet so long while he was sitting. And because she had other co wives. Other wives were also married to the prophets of Allah while he was sitting, even though she was pious, righteous and a great scholar in her own perspective, that didn't take away from her her natural jealousy towards the others, who
are also married to this little audio system. There are many narrations in this regard. One narration eyeshadow, viola herself says that I have never seen anyone who can cook food as good as Sophia to the olana. You know, she used to cook food so well, she used to cook food. So one so well, you know, very good cook, master chef.
But a lot of soon realized that a lot while he was still in Vietnam, in Vietnam, and she one day sent some foods The purpose of the La Jolla was to them in a bowl. And when I when the servant came and delivered the bowl to the prophets, I shall have the long line I was the one who opened the door, and she saw that Sophia was sending food on Ayesha's date. So what is it sort of the long line I do? She takes the bowl and
does not deposit it in the fridge. She takes the ball and she says further up to be Addy. I took it and I hit it really hard. Fuck I started to who until I broke the ball. And then after she broke it, she realized that what she did was something she shouldn't have done. She just had her moment. So she said football to Yasser Allah macrofossil to Heather. I said O Messenger of Allah, what is the expiation for what I just did? I just broke her bowl and destroyed her food What can I do? So the purpose of a lot of money was that um said in our own makhado in our in our Armand mechanical army, that you will send a bowl in place with a spool and in place of the bowl you destroyed and you will
send food in place of the food you destroyed.
And this, you can call healthy jealousy that the wives natural jealousy the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had amongst one another only remain as long as a prophet was alive because they were only envious, to spend more time and enjoy more time with solani. So once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam became like sisters, and there are one strong family after the Prophet passed away, you'll never find any narration of this sort. rendy narration of one Sahaba one wife of the Prophet saying anything to one of the wife of the Prophet that alone It was, their
their their their quarrels, were just due to them making their natural attempt to attract the love of the prophets of Allah while he was in.
Now how many battles that I showed of your loved one how participate in the only battle that you can authentically prove the province of the icon of your longliner participated in is the Battle of
I shall be alone along with other women came to the Battle of HUD
To give water to those who have a horde who are injured during this battle. There are many places in the Parana, where I show the alarm line has printed indirectly and also directly in particular color. There are some verses in Surah, a nude that were via the Guardian, I set the alarm line after he was accused by the hypocrites who resided in Madina munawwara the province of a long while they will set him was on a journey, and I shut up the long line I was also with him and they would carry the women in these carriages and I shall be allowed on hot in terms of her physique was a very thin person, she wasn't really that strong. So when it was time for them to move from one place to
another, I saw the alarm wanna have gone somewhere. She wasn't in the care that people came in to pick up the kids didn't realize that she wasn't in there. And they they left the person alone while they listen. I'm also left and all this habit also left it alone, Lionheart was one of the was the only one left behind. She came back, she was concerned and worried everyone left her behind. So she thought to herself, the best thing I can do is go to sleep right here. I'll just sit here Wait here, because one at some point or the other the prophet will realize I'm missing. And the last stop we had was here so he'll send someone to come up with from here, or he'll come and collect me here. So
I shall be allowed I should lie down and she fell asleep. And she says when she opened her eyes standing in front of her was a competitor of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his responsibility with us haba would move from one location and move on in their journey. It was a common habit of the Prophet that he will tell us a hobby to go and scout the area to make sure nothing was left behind. In case anyone left a charger behind or anything of theirs, go and check in and bring it so this hobbies that I came to check the area and I saw this lady there and I recognize as I said of the Alona because I had seen her before the verses of hijab were revealed, because I
had seen her before the verses of Java revealed when I said he got into the covering of the niqab for the wives of the Prophet I recognized her immediately. So then safonov the Alolan then guided her and arrived in Madina munawwara when they arrived in Madina, munawwara the impure hypocrites. You know Manoa took this opportunity to spread an impurity. And what was that they said that I showed the love on how one would either be louder, however, for the labella had engaged in an inappropriate relationship with this hobby. Now, this blows up to be a very long and gruesome incident known as the accusation. How do you if
and then finally Allah subhana wa tada revealed verses in the Quran, purifying and mentioning the purity of eyeshadow, viola, Juana, and how she had engaged in no such act and how she was a pure lady.
Another another set of verses that you'll find on the put on regarding her is when I showed her the law, Juana once again, was traveling with the Prophet that alone while it was sudden, and she misplaced her necklace. And that necklace was an expensive one. I showed you a loved one who couldn't find it. She couldn't find it. Everyone was looking around. They couldn't find it. The Prophet couldn't find it. The Prophet told us how about I can't go anywhere until Ayesha finds her necklace. So everyone else agreed that they would wait for them to so while they were looking for the necklace, the day long and Salalah time begin to run out. The province of Illinois it was set
him had his head against I show the low on his lap and he fell asleep there. Were walkers and he Guardiola. One came next to Isla de Alona and he started shouting at her shouting at her in a low tone. Because you because if you relate because of you, everyone is at home because of you. And as a father, you know, that's what father's do. And he gave her a piece of his heart.
I share with you Ilana says that he got so aggressive because of me that because I delayed everyone that my father should have poking me in my waistline. And the prophets that allamani was sent on bed woke up, and the Sahaba came and said O Messenger of Allah Salalah time is running up and there's no sign of water, what do we do?
So that's when Allah subhana wa tada revealed the verses of the animal.
That's when famine came into place. Before that, there wasn't a ruling of family and this habit and then came to Isla de la Juana and then we walked into the love line and they said to them, that old family of Abu Bakar This isn't the first time you've honored this oma This isn't the first time you brought Easter that will actually go to your loved one is very proud. And so as I shall be along with on on how
the process of allowing on a will set them regarding I shall have the Alona said what have you that I shall will be my spouse and gender and one narration the popsicle awesome said the virtue of I shot over all the other women is like 30 over all the other food fatigue was viewed amongst obsidium briyani like it was the the ribs the steak, like that's where you went out to dinner gonna go to eat.
And funny it was like this.
It was a meal that had thick consistency with a lot of meat in there. That was the that was comfortable with that it had a lot of meat
So this as the auto is respected 13th so much the province of the law it was cinemas saying this is the rank of eyeshadow the alone honor over all the other women that she holds a very unique and special place. In one narration The purpose of the law holiday was set up said to the companions that do not say anything to me against eyeshadow, the along with Atlanta
did not say anything to me against ice out of the Allahu talana because revelation would come while hurt and I would be lying in one sheet.
I'd be next to Ayesha. He'd be lined with me in one sheet, and that's when revelation would come.
She was very knowledgeable. Even hockey Rahmatullah YALI says it is Mustafa in Nairobi. Camus Shariati nucleolar unsegregated and say that the Ayesha that I see that the Asian he says that, indeed one fourth of the rulings of our Islamic law are narrated from I shall the Allahu Allah. Allah Allah, Allah Juan says there was never a time where the companions were confused regarding an issue. And we didn't know what the answer was. But we would go to it shall have the alarm on her and asked her and she would have the answer of what we didn't know that we didn't have knowledge of.
When faced says that I heard the football bubble bucket. I heard the football of all over the top. I heard the football both mom and I find and I live in editorial with your loved one. But after hearing all of their hookup, I have never heard anyone with more eloquent and more beautiful speech than I should have.
Because she was a master not in one science. She asked her in all sciences are weapons debater says I have never seen anyone who was more knowledgeable than the Koran more knowledgeable in the matters of inheritance, more knowledgeable in the matters of hot, hot and hot I'm more knowledgeable in the science of fit, more knowledgeable in poetry, more knowledgeable in medicine, more knowledgeable in a speech about their language, and more knowledgeable in the lineage, the the message of the Arabs, then I share the Allahu taala even though he says that if you were to gather the knowledge of all of the people, and then add to that the knowledge of the other wives the prophets of Allah holiday was
to them and compare it to some of the alone has knowledge. I believe that her knowledge may outweigh the other group. There are over 2000 narrations narrated from eyeshadow Ana, she is known from being the amongst those companions who narrate abundantly from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. She was so beloved to the Prophet that one day, I'm at an office with your loved one who accepted Islam later on.
Later, towards the end of the prophets life, he came to the prophets of Allah while he was cinnamon, he asked, you know the prophets of Allah who it was said them have this characteristic. And his characteristic was that no matter who met him, that person always felt like they were the closest to him. If you met the prophets of Allah while he was at him, even just for coffee, you would feel like you are the most important person to him. Because he really cared. He genuinely loved people. He paid attention to them when they were talking. He smiled at them, he had good character with every person he met. So I've been asked who in his previous life as a novelist and made many attempts to
hurt the Muslims and even killed the Prophet. Now that he accepts Islam. he interacts with the Prophet on a few occasions, and he has this beautiful experience. So one day he comes to the Prophet that a lot while it was said on publicly, and he says, a messenger of Allah, I have a question to ask you, who is the most beloved person to you?
He was expecting his name. Because of those few interactions. He had an Amish love the Prophet gave him. He just wanted everyone to know who it was. So he said, O Messenger of Allah, Who is the most beloved, who was the most beloved person to you. The purpose of the long audio system said Ayesha.
So he said, That's fair. It's his wife. Okay, we got a new job. What about from the men? The process was that a boo ha, her father.
That's it. And another marriage and he said bedroom? Oh, my bedroom of my bedroom. Ali? I'm gonna be honest with your loved one said, he kept saying so many names that at the end of it, I thought, you know what, maybe I should stop asking Then who? Because my name might not even be on this list. And it wasn't that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was lying to him. He was just being genuine that you look you asked a question publicly. And it's important that people know, because these are the people who made sacrifice, and there is none.
When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to the last part of his life, I think this just really expresses how much he loved it sort of the Aloha, he gathers, he gathered his other wives together and said to them, I seek your permission to spend the remaining of this illness in the light and the house of Irish of the long run. And the profit spent the last eight days of his life lohani was sitting in the house of Khadija Viola and the house of eyeshadow, the love Ana, I saw the alarm on her says, I hope three unique honors that no other prophet holds no other human being holds. What are those three honors? The Prophet passed away in my house in my lap, while my saliva
was in his mouth, because she used the her saliva to moisten the muscle
which was then used to do miswak. For the purpose of the law, it was sort of before he before he passed away, that after I saw the after, after the purpose of the law, how it was done and passed away.
I saw the alarm on how engaged he was being alone, kept herself away from people and just dealing with the passing of the Prophet Lani. So
she went for a hedge with the Holika, in particular with a plan and I found out the alarm went along with the other wives, they were all sponsored for hedge by management all for the long line, so they all went for hedge together.
after Othman, when I finally a loved one passed away, she became politically involved. Because when the law one was murdered, that people who killed him were not held accountable immediately. And the next Khalifa who succeeded or commandment I found, whose name was Alabama be thought it made an open statement that he was going to take his time and holding the people accountable who committed this murder. He didn't want to jump to conclusions. He didn't want to make a pre emptive move because that could lead to further fitna. So earlier the law one immediately held off on making a reaction, I started the lohana, who at the time was Macumba koderma. Along with Zubaydah and Bahadur the
Allahumma. He decided to approach Alia Viola one, and I asked to make a more quicker response. Under the law, one refused, which then led to a back and forth which ultimately led to a battle between the army of Russia and the law
against the army of olive in the long run. This is known as the first internal battle in Islamic history.
It's also known as the Battle of general Yes.
The reason why it's called Jamal is because originally Alia de la one made every attempt to repel the battle, he didn't want the battle to happen. And so deny some of the a lot of human every attempt to avoid the battle they just wanted to. The reason why they even came to the battlefield someone can ask if they didn't want to engage in battle, is because this is something that Adams did, when they wanted to when they wanted to show how strong they were, and how firm they were in their negotiations. They would come with a group of people, sometimes they would even come with soldiers. And the reason behind them coming soldiers was to show how serious you were, and how
serious you should be taken. So I'm going to be a lot one came with his people. I showed you alone when I came with her people, and they were saying that we have to come to a conclusion, we have to resolve this issue. And as they were in the process of resolving it. Most historical traditions tell us that there were some people who were intended on both sides, and they instigated the war, which led to a full blown out war. Now as the fire was happening, these hypocrites who are really trying to get it to the along one side to go full force against it along one side, they realized the only way of doing that was attacking I shut the alarm line had directly and I shouted the alarm line I
came to the battle feels on a camel. So one of the people fired an arrow and the arrow hit I shut the alarm on I skimmed her, her her camel.
And when that happened, I saw the Aloha soldiers turn into lions and they got very, very, very upset that How dare you fire an arrow with intention of striking the wife of the Prophet and you were so close that you injured her animal. And these people went monkey like they literally went crazy. And that's when the battle went full blown full fledge. Someone came to do your loved one and told him that I showed the loved one outside these people are not stopping someone fired an arrow and they got very close to hitting her these people. They're not happy at all. So I'll leave you alone. One said the only way to stop this bloodshed is for someone to go dry, shut the alarm on his side, grab
ahold of her camel and pull it out of the way the battlefield. Because as soon as people know that she's in safety, they'll back off, because the reason why they're fighting so aggressively is because they're worried about her. So one person that went inside the battlefield, and he pulled her off, and one narration that says that I shouldn't be alone when a philosopher Campbell, so I'll leave it alone, one went himself and he assisted her mounter animal again and then pulled her camel out of the battlefield. And when he pulled her animal out of the battlefield, the war more or less came to an end.
I showed her the alarm on that after that stayed apolitical for the rest of her life. She did not engage with politics at all. She outlived I leave with your loved one into the philosophy of mob your long one. And it was during the mouth of the philosopher of Mario the long one.
That the month in the year 58 at some say 57 Some say 59 majority say 58 I shall be alone and I passed away at the age of 67. And she was buried in Bucky. That was her request that when I'm buried buried me and Buffy with other wives but otherwise the Hollywood system from amongst the people who lower body into the grave
Were her two nephews are weapons. And I've got lapins availa Viola on Huma
Abedin of your loved one was a wonderful letter janaza I will never be alone one was actually appointed as a governor of Medina went under the rule of Mali, I've been a piece of yarn or the Allahumma.
As I mentioned earlier, I should have the alumni that did not have any children.
We also know that I think I mentioned this I'm not sure if I mentioned it, I'll just say it again. There are over 2000 Hadith narrated from each of the Alona which shows a large number of a hadith narrated from her. Now we come to the Hadid stuff. Okay, that's a brief introduction to who I show the allama. Anna is one of the greatest scholars of Islam, one of the greatest scholars of Islam.
We come to the Heidi itself. And where did this howdy talks about innovation. This particularly talks about innovation. And very soon we'll also read about the categories of innovation. But before I talk about innovation, what I like to do is spend a little time focusing on the opposite of innovation. Because we have a principle will be the heart at the beginning of a shift. By that by analyzing and studying the opposites you can truly understand the reality of something. So if you want to understand what White is the best way is examine.
Exactly black, once you know a black is and understand what a white is, you want to know what hot is examine.
Cold. Once you've experienced cold, you'll truly understand what what what hot is. So what we did the heart, the urine, Assia similarly here, before we go into beta, I'd like to spend a few moments examining the opposite of that. Anyone know what the opposite of beta is? Sigma is, the opposite of beta is sooner. Okay? If you have no idea what the word beta means, just the fact that it's the opposite of sin. Now, what does it tell you about this word?
It's not good. Okay. Anything that's the opposite of sinner is naturally not going to be a good thing. So similarly, bid odd is not a good thing. Let's define pseudonym. We may have done this before, but let's do it again. Sunnah is the constant practice of the province of a long while it was sort of anything established from the province of a law it was to them from his actions and statements, his his characteristics, his physical and care and internal characteristics, his his biography, also his silent consents, these are all things put together that give you his back give you sooner.
Following the suit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is something we're told to do, not only by the prophet, but also by the Quran itself.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says no Quran, Allah de Hola, como todo hatherly. Abu welcome, newcomers and Ramadan, that allows someone created life and death so that he can test which one of you is the best indeed. So remember Ozzy under this ayah. While he does succeed, he says,
you can ask the Lama The one who has best deeds. This means which person is most sincere in their deeds, and which persons deeds are closest to the center. These are the two things that make your deeds the best. If your deed is sincere, but not in line with a signature not. If your deed is in line with a signal but not sincere, not good enough. You have to have both things. You have to have the signal as a part of your deeds, that needs to be something that we need to bring into our life. In our bus with your loved one. He read the ayah Yo, yo boo home with us. What do we do? That on the Day of Judgment, there will be a group of people whose faces will be enlightened with Knuth with
like, a divine light. And there will be some people whose faces will be dark and they will not have any divine light. Even our boss or the loved one says, As for the people whose face will be enlightened, they are the people of
the or the people who follow the pseudonym. And as for the people whose faces will be darken. Fahad will be familiar even Pollara. These are people of innovation and the previous guidance. Muhammad Yunus even while of importance of the sooner he says, God, that the people of the past, they used to judge a person's correctness based off of how close that person can follow a trail. So if you're going from one city to another city, and someone before you just went there, what's the easiest way for you to go there and a way to ensure that you're going absolutely right.
You follow that person's trail, you do exactly what they did. If they did it correctly, you'll be able to do it. The profits that alone while he was still in pass through the journey of this life, and went on to the hereafter and the way he lived, his life in this world was perfect. So if you're looking for perfection, rather than finding your own route, or going out there and creating your own map, the best way for you to do it is to open the books of Hadith and follow that you know
Just today earlier on when we were studying Howdy, in mascots.
Every week I make this reference, by the way, the mascot class, because the two are how do you think they're connected together? So while we were in the parliament, we were studying their mascot, mascot and wasabi.
We were talking about the chapter of that. And while we were covering the chapter by Don, one of the students said that she I heard that some people are most certainly not I'm sorry, the chapter up entering and exiting the mothership. So one of the students shift, someone told me that there is a board and sending Salawat upon the Prophet when we exit the machine, is this something in a hurry? I'm supposed to say salovaara Maha mother alum. So Dr. Mohammed every time I enter the budget every time I exit the budget, so I asked him, Do you think
he said to me shift.
So I sit in that's very fascinating. You're saying it smells like innovation and business simply because someone said, What follows? As soon as there is
an increment of reading? Salawat? What do people assume right away?
That there's something fishy going on here. Just like when someone says bid auction regularly, what does everyone say?
Something fishy going on here? You know, why is the person saying bid? So regularly? If someone has a very long core thought, a very small shilada. You know, you know, this person's garment is telling me that he belongs to a particular group. You know, normally we say vertica, quota, quota, charter vacation water, right? Someone who's good has very long, and their parents are very short, this person belongs to a particular movement. And maybe he's after some agenda. So I said to the students that rather than assuming because someone is telling you something, that maybe this person belongs to adult or adult blah, blah, blah, rather than saying that, how about we study the Hadith. And then
it happened to be today morning in the Heidi, there were a few hobbies that came on the virtue of sending Salawat every time you enter and exit the machine. And the scholars they say that when you enter the machine, you should say, I will be lucky now the not not this is this is an ad. So they recommend this whole sequence. Every time you enter the message should say out loud in big hill Kareem or Safari who khadim ministry Fonterra, Gene Bismillah, he was Salam ala rasulillah, Allah homophily, Allah homophily thembi was the Holy of blah, blah Matic, that's the full dose, when you enter the machine that includes all the heartbeat of all the different devices that are recommended
to read when we enter the machine. So if you had a phone, he would say, a whole lot of firmly the path, the truth, meaning the pseudonym, hold on firmly to the path of the truth, because he says there hold on firmly to the path of the truth. And don't run away from it. Because there are a few people standing on that way. A time may come where there'll be a handful of people following the sun. But that doesn't mean what they're doing is wrong. You know, it's very possible that they're doing something wrong. And that's why everyone else she thought is dragging everyone in a whole different direction. Both mine and Haley says that you make some part of your actions a part of your
statements and allow us to inspire you with wisdom. And if you turn away from the sun, then your life Allah subhanahu wa tada will guide you towards misguidance and then here in the ayah. When to do that if you follow the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you will be guided. And there are many verses in the Quran about following the sooner so we need to embed this in ourselves. But the sooner the prophets that allamani was sent him is not secondary. It's not a maybe or I might, it's a must. The province that allow it was set up as a perfect specimen. Every action of his was divine was most beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanaw taala would never allow the prophet to
say or do something that wasn't most beloved to Allah subhana wa Tada. So if you're trying to figure it out, what's the best way to do something I am telling you right now straightforward. There is no other fraud in the world of anything being better than the way the Prophet said a lot of them did. That's why when you're making Guatemala, the best words you can use to make the law are the exact words that were uttered by the bless of tongue of the prophets of the law. He was in the province of a long while he was sending us a particular sentence structure and particular set of words when making law, those words are the best. We tried to imitate the prophets that a lot of sort of more
and more, I'll share a little story with you guys.
There was one shift, there is one shift, he's still alive and Allah prolong his life. Shift Yunus joyfully, he is known as
one of the greatest scholars living scholars of our time. He is also known as the Grand muhaddith of the subcontinent. He is the most senior scholar of hudy in the subcontinent, that's kind of like one of those things that's accepted, like one of the most senior scholars of howdy shift, Doctor aka another you for those of you who don't from Oxford. He actually just finished writing a biography on him.
He was telling us that he is a gem that the role doesn't know about and amazed because he is one of the people who influenced me most of my life shifting Unix modules and also I had a chance to perform Hajj with him a few times. I was honored to login with opportunity. One of the times while I was performing hajj with him, he's a very old man. So he sits on a wheelchair.
I was pushing him to the huddle. We came to we were in Mecca macadam, I pushed him to the bottom. We came to the bottom we prayed, we prayed Allah. Then we prayed and we came from a Korean mother Uppsala. He then created a well being between mother in Asia. We created a shuttle when it was time to come, come back to the hotel to go. What happened was one person came and he shook his hand. This person had never met the chef before in his life. Maybe he sent some nude. So he came and shook the chef's and kissed him on the hand and said, blah, blah, and walked away.
He was Malaysian. And another man came who left he seemed to be Nigerian, he came in, shook the chef's hat
and walked away. A few other people saw it and they all should have coming know what this guy's a he must. He must be someone important. That's why everyone's shaking his head. before we knew it. There was this whole segment of the home that was surrounded around him. Everyone's trying to shake his head. And all the cameras in the hot I'm sort of turning in our direction. And that's what I knew Big brother was watching and we were going to be in a lot of trouble.
So a few moments later, the cops came in. Mmm, no, no, no. Get out of here. They're pushing everyone to get out of here. No, no, congregating in the huddle. So one of the cops came to the front and he lifted his head. He was just about to hit the shift. And he said get out of the budget
for the shifts that to me, Hussein. Let's go. So I was pushing him out on the wheelchair while I was pushing him out. He started crying. He was in tears. So I stopped over I stopped and I pulled over on the side and I said to him shift. I apologize on behalf of that police officer if he was harsh with you. He said no, no, he was doing his job. The reason why I'm in tears in these were his words. He said Eunice gone.
He's talking about himself. He said who was Yunus? I was a kid who was from a small village in India called john poor. Nobody even knows what that is like small town. Not literally, it's on the map. But you know, nobody's heard of john pool. I was from a small village. I used to wear these shorts. And I used to have this sleeveless shirt. And I used to play in the mud all the time. I was a dirty little kid, I used to make a mess and come home every day. He said I was destined to never be known in the world. I should have lived in died. And no one should have even known of my existence other than the five people who have, you know, no one me in my life in my small little village. But he
said today Allah subhanho wa Taala honored me in a manner that I've been hard on when people are coming from across the road and they want to shake my hand they want to ask me to make do. And this was when he started crying a lot. He said Hussein, don't be fooled. They don't care about us. Until today, Yunus is an unknown person. His value is nothing. The only reason why these people are coming to me is because I promised to love the student of the prophecy.
I dedicated my life to the cinema. As long as I love the sun, Allah will honor you. But the moment you leave the sun, you will be disgraced wherever you go. And his word honesty, I think of them quite regularly, you will honor it as long as you have the sun. And when you leave the sun of the prophecies belong to us in them. That's when you will be disgraced.
Now there's this objection that some people have they say that
we can't really follow the sun now because it's all fabricated in a bunch of mulas made it all up.
You know, people went on with history and they made it up and they made it up and made it up. And they finally came religion. So the mullahs the scholars of our time, have a fabricated tradition that support their personal agendas. I'm just gonna, I'm just gonna bust the bubble for you. That statement is nothing short of baloney.
It's pure. It's like it's a meaningless statement. It's not a statement someone would make who's voting for Donald Trump. You know, someone who believes in loose empty statements that have no research behind them at all might make a statement like that. But an intellectual person who has any care for research, or even a deep eye for reading would never ever, ever give any value to a statement like that. Because that right there is discrediting 1400 years of thorough research and scholars giving their life to this tradition to ensure every Hadoop is properly preserved. And this science of preserving the Sunnah, this, this golden egg this champion trophy that we have started
right from the times of this hubbub, I'm looking to decode the alarm. One was known to be the first person, half of the champion of the hobby says, Who narrates evidence you have
from cabeza been that an old lady came to America and she demanded her, her right from the inheritance
of electricity. Guardiola once said that considering your unique situation, there's nothing that the Quran says nothing that the Hadith says about that. I'm aware of that, that tells me how much you're supposed to receive from inheritance. So
I've worked with liquidity a lot when asked the people Is there anyone here who knows any Hadeeth or any information about this? So I'm so happy about the name of Molina I'm unsure but he got up and said Yes, I know. The problem is that a lot while he was said him said she will receive one sixth. So then I've actually got your loved one asked me Robin Sharma provide proof.
Who was there? Who was your witness that the Prophet said this in Malaysia when shaba then went to Mohammed Muslim and Muhammad Muslim testified on behalf of malayalam Chava and that's when Abu Bakr Siddiq with your loved one gave that photo. Similarly, during Ramadan photography alone, one time, Abu Musab actually came to visit a little pub, and he knocked on the door three times. When I'm under the law, one didn't respond. I've almost had a shot he left. Now a little while later almost said Someone's knocking on the door go check who it was. They went and checked who it was. And they found out that it was a Muslim but he left so I'm going to do a lot of one became upset that Why did
you leave? I didn't give you permission to leave. You should have waited for me, you know that I have 10 things going on. That's kind of like a thought going through his mind. So he called a mimosa and said to him, why did you leave? So I will masala Sharia law one said I heard the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying that if you seek permission three times and you're not granted permission, you should return back home. So I'm not going to hold on you heard this said Wow. It's interesting.
You call someone three times on their phone and they don't answer you can't continue to call him every 30 seconds now. So when he's hearing this, on one of your loved one says to have almost a luxury, provide proof who can support this? If you don't provide proof, I will punish you. He lays it on it. So I will massage it on your loved one came to the public sitting area where everyone was sitting in his face color was changed someone's advice up gala What happened? You? Why are you so buddy Shawn, why are you so concerned? so worried? So massage, your loved one said this is what Omar said? Is there anyone here who can corroborate the Hadith? So then a group of Sahaba set up and said
yes, we also heard this, how do you all want to be alone? One was unable to verify it. So this is something that should be at the core of our life. And once you understand the value of sunan, our Deen what the sooner means to us as Muslims, how soon that is the only source of guidance for us. That's when you'll understand how evil this opposite of the Sunnah is, before I go to what the opposite, or this evil is, I want to close off with one thing. How can we bring something into our lives? This is a very important question. I'm going to suggest a few things. First and foremost, learn about the one who you're trying to follow.
If you don't know anything about the person who you're trying to imitate, imitating that person will have no value.
You and I are trying to imitate the Prophet,
go and learn about him. Go and read about his life. Go and read about his sacrifices, go and read about all the people in the humanity that he's influenced. Go and read about everything. You know, just earlier today. I saw this on social media.
With a sister she had a post and she said that earlier on this year, Donald Trump started his his smear campaign against the Muslims. And that led me to opening the Quran and reading it. And I just wanted to let you guys know that everybody don't hear that Donald Trump was the one who guided me towards Islam. And that final sentence was a little bother somebody was tricky. But she was sharing her journey to Islam, but he was the one who ended up guiding her towards Islam. It was his bigotry that led her to studying Islam.
Learn, learn, learn about the prophet of Islam. And when you learn, that's when you'll learn to love. Because without love without learning without knowing you can love. And after you love practicing will become very easy. Number three, it'll become very easy to practice. Number four, to secure that practice. Stay in the company of people who care about what you do, who care about the sooner who care about practicing. Don't be with people who care who don't care about the sooner because by sitting with them, they'll never encourage you to become a better person. Sit with people who care about, you know, sit with people who read the eyes when they eat, who read the GWAS after
they finish, who talk in the suit, who smile with the sooner who control the anger who are constantly reading and learning the cinema. And the last thing Remember, the prophets have a long line he was sent him said the water will be will be with me and Jenna.
Looking for a pathway agenda. The easiest way
is to imitate the profit. In one narration that really amazes me a lot is that one time a veteran came to the gathering salon instead of
when he walked in. He said hey, you come Mohammed.
You know what that means? That means Which one of you is
you know what's interesting about that statement? Like everyone in that gathering, had imitated the purpose of the law while he was sitting to the tee everyone was just modestly there.
We're all under a thicker game like, you know, stronger, thicker game. And here, as soon as, as soon as this man comes in the gathering, he sees everyone imitating the process of allowing. That's why he's compelled to ask the question a Yukon Muhammad, which one of you is Muhammad soleimani? Was it? Now we come to the opposite of
What does this mean?
Now before I get involved
with this discussion, I want you to know that this next discussion we're going to have is a tad bit technical. Okay, so I'm gonna need your undivided attention. And it may not be a bad idea to take notes on what I'm about. Because the next part of this class is going to get a little technical, I don't want you to think it's impossible to understand, I will make it easy for you, I'll sum it down for you. But at the same time, I'm going to need your attention so you can catch what I'm going to teach right now.
The second thing, as an introduction, before I get started, people are terrified.
Because the people who use lose this,
who use this term aren't usually happy. And it's kind of like in our community, the one who can pronounce the word without with a better name has more authority and religion. If you say bit, as opposed to bit odds, like you are, like 10 years ahead of everyone else in your master's program. Okay? That's not true. There are many people in the Muslim world who misuse this word very regularly. People have an idea of what it means, but they don't understand the depth of what it means and what the technicalities are behind this work. So I'm going to walk you through not through one definition, but through multiple definitions. And through the evolution of definition that I
will provide to you. We will learn a new depth with each definition we'll learn a new meaning behind this word what it means.
So we'll start off today with the definition of Imam No, we don't
even remember what it says Buddha, is anything done without a prior example, in the shediac.
It is an invention of which did not exist in the era of Allah's Messenger. So lalani was
a bit odd is anything done without prior exam? In Sharia. It is an invention of that which did not exist in the era of Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So what we're learning from this is, by the way, these are technical definitions of what the Word of God is, linguistically, that means something new, something that didn't exist before. So for example, if there was no if no one had ever created rollerskates, before, and I was the first person to create them, I would be called a move to there. And the word innovator usually comes in a positive connotation. However, in religion, we don't like it. In religion, it comes in a negative connotation. Allah subhanho wa Taala actually calls himself an innovator in the put on,
you guys know that.
Not in its technical term, but its linguistic term, but the or semi allottee, one out of the one who created the skies on the earth with innovation, meaning there was no one before me that did it. I was the first one who created it in a unique and special manner.
Now, technically here in my memory is saying that doing something
that did not exist in the Sharia and did not exist in the earlier generation from the prophets time. So hold on to that definition. Now, based off this the scholars they say that, Buddha is of two types.
innovations are of two types, religious innovations are of two types. The first is called bid antibody, and the second is called bid Amelie
bid. antibody refers to innovation in beliefs.
for example, the wattage This is known as the first deviant group, when it comes to beliefs in Islamic history. And because these were the first people who came with this new, interesting set of beliefs that weren't recognized before in the earlier tradition during the Prophet's time, therefore, that belief system of the holidays, we call that bid at the quality it's a, it's a, it's an innovation in relation to belief. Then the second is called the Omni. Omni refers to innovation in actions.
with innovation actions mean doing something, innovating something in the bean, from actions like doing something or saying something that the Prophet said a long while he was sort of himself did it or didn't do.
Now, there is a big
discussion amongst the scholars that can be categorized or not. So are all innovations.
In one big pile or do you categorize innovations in multiple categories? Are you guys understanding the discussion here? So can there be a good type of without and a bad type of without or are all good odds just one and we should stay away from them period. So there are one group of scholars who say that there are two types of bid ah the first one is called bid ah hustle
with a hustler refers to an action
which is an it's an innovative action. Let's start again. Beta hustler is an innovative action which does not contradict the Quran and Sunnah.
innovated action that does not contradict the Quran and Sunnah. Meaning you find precedents of that action in the Quran, you find precedents of that action, but maybe the structuring of that action may not be the way it is. So I'll give you an example.
We know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did pray that all we hear Yes.
But during all of your loved ones time, the Sahaba used to pray that all we pray in the mosque in small groups, everyone needs to pray. And the individual groups are Amaro de la Hwan did was he said, Let's gather everyone together not behind multiple imams instead of having 10 imams during 10th alaba Jamaat inside the masjid, let's gather everyone in one Gemma we had one email. And then after doing this, he comforted by saying what a beautiful VEDA
what it all meant to be alone one see
What a beautiful beta. So from this, some scholars took the meaning that you know what, there could be a good type of beta, it could be a good type of innovation. Then the second type of innovation they call on is what we call bid, bid arsia and offensive innovation. It's that innovative action, which was not practiced during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and it contradicts the Quran and Sunnah. So this is something that didn't exist during the prophets time. And it clearly contradicts the Quran. It also contradicts the Sunnah as well.
Now, one thing I just want to point out here, before we move any forward, you know this categorization have been good and bad. Most scholars say the reason why these categories were even created is because the definition of the law wasn't airtight. The definition wasn't airtight. Otherwise these categories wouldn't, wouldn't, aren't necessary. And it also seems there was a mixup between semantics and a technical definition. Because semantically only in terms of semantics, the linguistic definition of it is anything that's new. Therefore, it seems like a good thing that's new is being called an innovation. Well, the truth is that once we have a full definition, we'll realize
that this good innovation in reality is nothing. It doesn't exist, you know, this good innovation category here without a center. In reality, it doesn't exist, we just have to give a good definition to be that. So it clarifies things. There's another famous scholar by the name of his Dean, but I've just set up
this is very important notice now it is the demon of the Salam rights inescapable collide, that there are five types of data, five levels.
The first one is called logic, this sort of bit, you must engage in
the second is what he calls hot on this sort of bizarre you must stay away from the third is what he calls
men do. What does that mean? preferable. It's not obligatory, but it's a preferable but the fourth is what he calls mcru. A disliked a bit, not haram but dislike. And the fifth is what he calls MOBA, meaning it's neutral, not recommended, not discouraged, just in the middle. If you want to do it, do it. If you don't want to do it, don't do it. Now, after listing these five, he then gives an example for each of the five
for weijun, the first one which was necessary the necessary he says, the example of this is engaging in the science of just what da da da da da refers to a science of the narrator's have any particular hobbies, or the narrator's within the science of how these are criticized. It's a critical study of them. So you'll look into who's a liar who's not a liar, you'll go into finding out who lived how many a lot how many years and who didn't live this many years, you know, you do a total breakdown. So because this study didn't exist during the Prophet's time, this detail critical analysis, what are they calling it a bit, but they calling it a wedge a bit? Ah, why are they calling it logic?
Because without this without without this innovation,
how this will be preserved. So they're saying this is a must. We must do this. You can see already how there's a lot of semantics involved. You can easily kind of argue and prove how this is not a bit off, but just wait for it.
Shut up ahead that'll clarify things for you.
Then bid on the absolutely haram bid Ah, what is this? The example he gives his
bid on any article? This is absolutely Hold on. That's a good example. Like for example with a Gemini matakauri, Timo Jia Timo, just Sema, the average, the Moto Zilla, he's all groups that came earlier on in Islam and they created innovative beliefs that didn't exist during the Prophet's time. So he calls us absolutely hot on beta, the man do the recommended with us. He says, This is
like creating Islamic schools
or creating a Mother Teresa. Did they have a mother site or Islamic school during the prophets time? They had no sufa but it wasn't really a formalized school with a formalized curriculum and principal and vice principal. Putting the whole school together. This didn't happen during the Prophet's time. Okay, so they're calling this a desirable bit. And the makua disliked with that, he says is like excessively decorating your mosques. What an interesting example. Just earlier today, one of the students at the seminary was telling me about a Masjid that has a chandelier for $50,000. In the USA, by the way, a $50,000 chandelier and we have people in poverty, and we're spending $50,000 on
our chandelier. What a shame. So he says this is a sort of macoun Buddha. And the permissible with Augustus MOBA, meaning you can do it you don't have to do it, it's up to you.
Is like living in luxurious homes, or having increasing delicacies in food and drink. These are all examples of mobile be that during the profits time, people didn't have big homes, they didn't have multiple foods on their table for dinner and for lunch. But it's permissible. But it's a benign innovation that didn't exist before. Now, this was a statement of izzadeen. But
then comes the Huck, one of the greatest researchers in Islamic history by the name of a shot to be a mama shot me.
He then goes to town on his Dean.
And this whole group of people who create multiple categories have been, he says that,
look, the amount of shots and he says, if you're calling some dub liberatory, then it has to be a part of the beam. You guys understand that? If something's obligatory, you just said something's off, you said that there's a bit odd, that's obligatory. So what is a shocking thing? If it's obligatory, then it has to be
a part of the beam, there has to be some framework or some principle according to which we can bring it and make it a part of the theme. And the second thing he says is that if something is disliked, then what does that mean?
That it has to be outside of the so this whole thing of creating a bit out that's inside and outside, he says, that doesn't make any sense.
Now, here's the definition a bit odd that I'd like for you guys to note down. And this definition of without inshallah will be the definition I want you to use. And it will put everything into perspective
with our means, to introduce something
in the religion,
beyond our means to introduce something into the religion, that was not done during the time of the messenger sort of lohani was set up.
And the rightly guided a follow up, see how we added that there. You see how we added that, by adding that we just dealt with so much of the above problem of either Hasina and say, and five different types of data. And some scholars even add after that, the rightly guided that the right side of the righteous, the righteous predecessors setup asahina.
So they see messengers of a lot of the law. And they also say the early generations
then say, with the intention of gaining reward
with the intention of gaining reward.
Now this is the most important part, listen to this carefully, despite being need for it in the time of the messengers that allamani was set up, it was not implemented.
Despite being a need for it, during the time of the Prophet that allowed instead it was not implemented. What does that mean? So let's go through this again. Anything that didn't happen during the prophets time, we don't find a precedent for there during the time of the qualified Russian Dean during the time of the earlier generations. And it's done with the intention of good deeds. What does that mean? So for example, can someone say driving a car has been Ah,
yes or no?
Technically speaking linguistically, yeah. But technically No. The reason is because nobody drives a car thinking that they're going to get rewarded for it. The first part of the definition applies to writing a car because that's profit didn't write a car. So a lot is not additive.
However, neither are the generations. But the reason why driving a car and eating Gianni and dressing the way you're dressed right now is not considered a bit odd is because we don't do we don't drive a car, or riding a plane flying a plane, because we think it's a part of the religion. If someone thought that driving an S Class, Mercedes was sooner built on the back of your head, because that would be a class class. Right? That would be an amazing example of Buddha.
We do have examples like that, unfortunately. But nonetheless, and the last part was, despite there being a need for it, that action wasn't implemented. So the scenario did exist. But that product wasn't bought into place to deal with that scenario. So what does that mean? So faulty,
acquired faulty beliefs didn't exist during the Prophet's life, for example. So because they didn't exist later on when they do exist, the methods that are created to deal with those faulty beliefs will not be called vidaa. The reason is, because the model that you use to deal with a challenge you're facing right now that challenge didn't exist during the Prophet's time. You guys following that, that challenge that technology, that reality didn't exist during the prophets time. So that's why, despite being a need for it in the in the time of the prophet SAW system, it was not implemented.
From this, we also learn that anything that's done during the times the companions anything that companions bring into existence, is not considered an innovation, for example, establishing an additional add on for Joomla. During the profits time, how many add ons were there for Joomla?
One, today, we have how many events for Joomla? Two, that second add on was added by this hub with 199. Therefore we don't consider that a bit odd.
Similarly, praying 20 taraweeh prayer that was established by authority alone one, that's why it's not considered to be a part of it without praying it in, in congregation. That's why it's not considered to be an element of
someone can then argue and say, but why should I follow the Sahaba my allegiance is only to align that associate aloha to some. Well, that's because the Prophet told you to
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it in the Hadith. Follow my example in the example of
the Hanukkah or Rashi dean of lolly have been allotted by onto it with your molars, and when they urged the pop saw some said as narrative mttb the human being imagine Mr. Mohammed, and other scholars as well that follow the footsteps of the two people who will follow me, Abubakar Rama, the allamani.
In closing, in my medical Mo, Allahu taala says, and this teaches us the importance of staying away from innovation. Okay, innovations have become very common in our Deen. Unfortunately, many people spend more time in innovations when they go to Muslim countries. That's what you see people don't find the command of a lung that assumes that a lot of it was for them to be appealing. So then then turn into actions, right? They're not pleased to know that nobody ever worshipped a grief. I went to India once when I went there, someone told me that there is a grave that you should go visit.
I didn't realize what was happening. I thought to myself, okay, going to a graveyard is always a good thing. laquan tells us how to Tamil macabre. So let's go. When I came to the Greek when I came to this read, it was like a structured, that's what I read. This was a better guide. This wasn't a great.
This was a new experience for me. So I followed along. When I got there. There's a person one lady sitting outside with very long hair. Very I don't know what actually I don't know it was a leader guy. There was some person there with very long hair. And everyone there the tradition is that if you want to go inside, you have to leave your shoes with this person.
So I said to that person who took me there, that bicep, I'm going to hold on to my slippers. He said to me shift. It's disrespectful to take your slippers into the shrine.
I said who said it's disrespectful. He said, Well, that's the culture here. You have to leave it behind.
I felt very, very shady about it. So I went to the cab driver who drove us there. I said, You know what, I'm going to give you a 100 rupees extra unit hold on to my slippers. And please don't go missing. Right. I didn't know if that lady was going to do some magic on there something I didn't want her to touch my slippers. So I went inside when I went there. They had a full blown rave party going on in there. People were shaking, their heads are waving side to side. When I got to the grave itself. I asked the brother not everyone's staring at us. And the reason why they're staring at us is because we're worrying folks. And usually people who are thoughtful voters. shrines are not
really happy people. And I was still I was still in the process of understanding what was going on, by the way. So I reach inside and I'm sitting down and everyone's staring at me and my buddy, and
I just, you know was reflecting and reading the laws when you visit a graveyard and sitting there and while I was sitting there, just reflect
over death. I saw this guy. This is the funny part of the story. I saw this guy who got up in front of me. And he literally did the life of the Kaaba. I'm not Kava sorry, hold on.
He literally did go off of it.
He thought the grace.
After he was done, I came to him and I said, Brother, why did you get to offer the grief? The loss isn't a bother, that's Haas bill McCann, there's only one place in the world you can get the loss. And that is of the Kaaba, you can even get off the profits grave. Where are you doing here? And that guy looked at me and said, leave me alone will hobby.
And I said, Okay, if that's if that's what it is you what you want to do. I'm gonna leave you alone a long way. Then I went inside the cab, and I told a cab driver of mine. And he said to me, that's nothing big. I can return times a week. And that's when I realized that this practice was more common than I thought it. I was actually telling the students earlier on in class, that I'm humbled Latin America, we don't have
I haven't seen this in America where people go to visit graves. And when we go to visit graves, that's assuming I'm not asking anyone not to visit a grave. By the way. Visiting the grave is from the Sunnah of the prophet and a lot of stuff. I'm talking about all the Hocus Pocus. That goes wrong that goes along there. And then we have all sorts of edgy parties. One day one person came to me. I remember while I was in Chicago, and he's a chef, is it true that there's a similar to have haleem on the sofa?
And on the 15th of Shabbat.
I said to him, my dear friend, I set the alarm on I said that two months at a time that would only have water and dates. What are you talking about Eileen? Like I doubt the Prophet ever had haleem his entire life. What do you like? What are you talking about? Someone one day came in anyway said
there are so many examples, so many examples. So many examples of Buddha in our communities, unfortunately, but it's a reality. I mean, there are some that we all experienced while growing up the most famous one that all of you probably have experienced. And I feel like saying this example again is like me just wasting time. But fold your masala before you stand up after Salah. Right? I mean, there are so many of them, that people grew up practicing and doing this because everyone did it because everyone did it. That was it. You know the eighth of Raja was
Laila Tula mirage. This today we were studying the habit of Vedanta knowledge with the students. And I told him there are over 12 opinions of one mount odd happen. The scholars of Hadid cannot agree which year it was forget about the date in the month. I don't know how these people figured out 14th and 17th of Rajab an eighth of a law job, and they figured out an exact date, when the mohabbatein are nowhere near that they're like, all over the place, you know, they're there. They're trying to figure out what it is. So people, they have these faulty innovations, and they come up with these arguments, you know,
Malik says, and I'm going to close with this,
whatever innovates in innovation, believing it to be a good
be believing it, that it's something good, hasn't been claimed that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam betrayed the trust and he didn't complete deliver the complete religion to
because you're trying to say that there's some act of worship that you found right now that the province of Milan forgot to tell us about. And that innovator clearly is violating the verse of the Quran, Allah acumatica la comida con Atlanta la comunidad Mati hora de todo como la Medina.
You don't need someone to come and tell you to hop on your right foot 10 times all the while waving your left here, while you say some tongue twister Maluku revolute. You know, you can go pray to God Raise your hands and make a lot a lot longer. And the results will be much more pure, the results will have they will bring fruits much more effectively, you know, stick to the tradition, stick to the functions. If I may say stick to the basics
of the proximal audio system. There's no rocket science here. It's just simple stuff. You know, we were reading the Hadith earlier prophets that a long while he was sent him says whoever
walks to the masjid waits for salah and does will do properly.
Whoever walks dimension waits for salah and does will do properly. The Prophet Nelson says that person will live a beautiful life and will die a beautiful death symbol solutions everywhere. They're all for the hunting the process of life, so many solutions for us in our lives to fix things. So, to summarize, this hadith we're being taught here is to avoid innovations. Follow the Quran. Follow the Sunnah do what the Sahaba did, if you find someone telling you something that's against that violates the Sharia walk away. There are examples of this in our community where there are people in the community that are telling women that engage in this action with me which the
sister knows clearly violates the Shetty if somebody's mom or some chef or some feet in the world is telling you to do something that clearly violates the city. Should you continue or discontinue
yours allegiance is not to an Imam or to a shift. Your allegiance is to align that associate along the line he was gonna withdraw this engage right away. If you see someone's doing something that's a bit out
Leaving, don't engage in. Someone was telling me that I did the sisters class in the budget. One of the sisters are telling me that there apparently there's someone who comes to the Dallas DFW area. And she was telling me
that there's someone who comes in does some law or does some kind of Hocus Pocus business. And people go to that person for getting Baraka. And one person went to that person and said, you know, what, I have some sort of a lottery or some sort of a machine, you know, they have these gambling machines, I need a BA in the business. And that lady or that person started making gloves for that person to a login button and said, you know, take this doggies and put it here and do that. You know, that's like,
that's like silly. You know what I mean? Like, first of all, what you're doing is silly. And second of all, you're making the law for someone, or something that is not permissible. And the Dini should tell that person, brother, you're violating the *ty out of what you're doing. Stop doing that. You're giving your stupidity away. You're not one said if you don't want people to know you're stupid, stay quiet, don't say anything. They won't know how intellectual you are or how foolish but the moment you open your mouth, you give it away. That's when they can tell what your true value is. So in summary, stick to the Sunnah of the Prophet that allottee that's where our allegiances, that's
where our bond should be. There is nothing in the world that can be offered, that is more impactful in your spiritual growth. If your dean or for your lunia that is better than anything the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam offered, pray that Allah subhana wa tada keeps us from the pious and righteous and saves it from the innovators in a light innovation, a subtle law while I see the humble summary
