swim team comes in

00:00:07--> 00:00:09

handy to learn to work with alumina a buddy who

00:00:11--> 00:00:16

also Sanada seeking to sue Hata Milan via Neil Ischia, wasabi

00:00:23--> 00:00:32

Okay, so inshallah we'll start our class. We are continuing check out the fact that over Daramola with Allah's book,

00:00:33--> 00:00:34

or rasool Allah Allah,

00:00:35--> 00:00:37

in which we study

00:00:38--> 00:00:46

the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam from the perspective of the VESA Longmont, he was sent on being an educator and a teacher.

00:00:49--> 00:00:52

In our last class, we discussed the hadith

00:00:54--> 00:00:59

of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tabula illumi Farinata ala kulli Muslim,

00:01:00--> 00:01:13

and how Chablis Fatah mentioned that this obligation applies both to the men and women of our community and society. I shared some examples in this regard.

00:01:15--> 00:01:18

Specifically regarding female scholarship

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

throughout history.

00:01:22--> 00:01:33

And if someone wishes to study this issue further, Dr. Akram, his book on Hadith that is very valuable, as he has even more references in there.

00:01:35--> 00:01:36

But we move forward today,

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

the chapter

00:01:40--> 00:01:45

shift of the photograher Daramola. With Tata studies, he has a brief discussion on

00:01:46--> 00:01:50

what kind of teacher Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was,

00:01:51--> 00:01:51

Mr.

00:01:55--> 00:02:28

Watson householder, a quick survey of muscle loss Allah Allah said those merits and sublime character in the field of education. We greatly enjoy and benefit from the first teacher and unlettered prophet regarding all aspects of his life's lifestyle, both in the means, both in the means and objectives. In these few pages, we can do no more than pursue some of his methods with regard to teaching and education. As for the major objectives, which this great teacher paid attention to, there are other fields of discussion concerning

00:02:29--> 00:03:11

We ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us the ability and good fortune to pursue them as well. This teacher of goodness Allah, Allah send them despite being unable to read or write, was bestowed with such knowledge by Allah, Allah that surpass that of every other human being. Allah, Allah completed his favor upon him by bestowing him with an unusual, comprehensive and unique personality. Allah Allah displaces kindness towards him by saying, He taught you that what you were unable to learn. And the last favor upon you is extremely great. So here the author, he points out that maybe you said Allahu alayhi wa sallam life.

00:03:12--> 00:03:20

It teaches us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a unique approach to the means and objectives

00:03:22--> 00:03:23

of education.

00:03:24--> 00:03:26

The props that Allamani was said adopted unique means

00:03:27--> 00:03:52

include leejohn, even mean Giovanni be heavy, Phil was really well, that was the means via the goals and objectives. So when a person sits to educate or study, you need to first and foremost identify your objective, what are you trying to accomplish here? What are you trying to accomplish from this knowledge from this gathering?

00:03:53--> 00:03:59

And then we need to now figure out what are the means to accomplishing this goal or these goals.

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

Now, he then says that

00:04:05--> 00:04:16

the greater goals of seeking knowledge is something that can be studied at another point, but he wants to start off by studying the methodology asylees of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

now

00:04:20--> 00:04:46

should help the photographer Daramola Matala points out that handle more Ali Merill Heidi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah and me besides the fact despite the fact that nobody said a lot of money was sent a letter now you're gonna oh well if you could not read nor contributed a lot of money was sent them right. But money how Allahu Allah Allah, Allah de la you Danny huddle mean especially despite his

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

him being an omy

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

Allah subhanahu wa Tada bestowed upon him knowledge that no other creation can ever come close to claiming

00:05:00--> 00:05:18

And to support this he cites the idea of Surah Nisa 113 Well, I lemma Kamal I'm talkin alum Lacan father LAHIA, alayka Halima, that he taught you that which you do not know that which you do not know

00:05:19--> 00:05:37

from the matters of Shadia from matters of height and Chuck as if not best with your loved one commented on the I explaining, you know, Haiti was shut for matters of evil and good maybe so long while he was sent him was given this knowledge.

00:05:39--> 00:05:41

Similarly, the hoc while commenting on the idea, he said,

00:05:42--> 00:05:51

Oh, well, you know what offering that nobody said Allahu it was cinemas given knowledge of those who came before and also those that will come later on.

00:05:54--> 00:06:19

Now when it comes to the knowledge of the Gambia, Alehissalaam and specifically Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there is a need for a brief discussion, because unfortunately, many people have fallen here and have made a grave mistake, the implications of which impact a person's Akita and their Islam their ima.

00:06:21--> 00:06:29

Knowledge by default, all knowledge belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala Laurie Milena Illa alimta bill is

00:06:31--> 00:07:02

so there is not enough religions there we have no knowledge in law except for so now we're making an exclusion. My limb Tana that which you have taught us, the way this idea is laid out before us, basically sets RFP that it sets our belief straight. Now, there is no knowledge that we have any lien that we have in reality is a gift from Allah subhanahu wa Tada regardless of which science which subject,

00:07:03--> 00:07:07

any skill set, this is all a gift from Allah subhanahu wa Tada

00:07:09--> 00:07:13

in llama, lantana we have no knowledge, but that which You have given us,

00:07:14--> 00:07:17

the MBR they use their case is the same.

00:07:19--> 00:07:24

Allah subhanahu wa taala gives them knowledge that is superior to all of mankind.

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

We as human beings can acquire knowledge.

00:07:29--> 00:07:59

But to our knowledge, there is a speculative nature where there is speculation that occurs. Human beings flip and flop between their ideologies, their philosophies, the MBR llegamos salaam come with knowledge that is certain. There is no second question. There is no doubt in what they say. Specifically, when it comes to matters of the deen, right. Sometimes the Prophet of Allah speaks in Haiti and Basha.

00:08:00--> 00:08:40

And then other times, meaning as a human being as an average person, the Prophet of Allah makes a contribution to Congress to a conversation, not from a place of Revelation, not from the position of being a prophet, but as a common person, from the people. The greatest example of this is the messenger of that beat or nothing. When the visit Allahu Allah was Selim arrived in Madina, Munawwara they were farmers there, these people were known for their agriculture. One of the practices they had was something called Bureau none, which means cross pollination. Right, they would take different plants and mix them and grow them accordingly. They found this to be very

00:08:40--> 00:08:51

effective. At face value Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't like this practice because the Prophet of Allah didn't like people mixing the creation of Allah that one thing is taken and mixed with another thing.

00:08:52--> 00:08:54

So he said, Let everything be

00:08:55--> 00:09:00

the Sahaba listen can be sort of lost money was stolen and their crops grew fewer that year.

00:09:02--> 00:09:03

They came and told me he said a lot

00:09:04--> 00:09:29

of you said a long while he was said and then said to them, and to Adam will be moody to Yakko that you are more knowledgeable of your worldly affairs. You have digital by you have experience in agriculture and farming more than I have. So you manage your own affairs. This is not to do with the dean. However, mood the NIA matters that relate to the dean. Revelation is absolute in that regard.

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

So Allah subhanahu wa Tada. He grants the MBR to his knowledge and this is what the ISS well i lemma Kamal I'm talkin darlin, that he gave you a knowledge of that which you did not know what kind of father Allah alayka or the milk if we backtrack and that same idea, and look at what's immediately before this. Allah subhanaw taala says, well, unzila Ilica dikenali Tibet iannelli NASCI mannosylated no one's Allah Allah

00:10:02--> 00:10:05

This is Bill hikma well LM aka Mylanta Kuntala.

00:10:08--> 00:10:10

Anyone I'm gonna pull it up. Hello

00:10:15--> 00:10:55

my ohana convention. Allah Allah can Kitab al hikma well HC moto Allah McCallum to come down this side. ones are Allahu Allah al Kitab al Haig Mata. Well Allah commanded to Kuntala now we look at this IR what do we see? Allah subhanaw taala says ones on Allahu Allah al Kitab al Hikmah that this knowledge that is being praised later on in that very same idea what kind of further Allah Allah Allah that Allah is favor upon you is great that I have that praise that's coming for knowledge. Allah subhana wa Tada quantifies that the first part of the iron ones that Allah Anakin kita will hikma that he granted you both the Kitab which is the Quran, revelation will Hikmah and new Buddha

00:10:55--> 00:11:13

prophet. This is also from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada hikma generally when mentioned the Quran comes in the meaning of the Buddha. This is why the Allameh those who claimed that that with Ali Salam was a NaVi they made this argument based off of the idea Walcott thenocman al Hickman,

00:11:15--> 00:11:19

because the word hikma when using the Quran, generally comes in the meaning of

00:11:20--> 00:11:21

the Buddha.

00:11:22--> 00:11:28

So Allah subhanho wa Taala he says one that we reveal onto him

00:11:29--> 00:11:35

the kita for Quran and the wisdom and he taught you that which you do not know.

00:11:37--> 00:11:47

In Memphis within Razi Rahim, Allah Tala, he gathers a few points together. One thing he says, he brings the if pseudo to Israel.

00:11:48--> 00:11:57

He says that Allah azza wa jal says no Quran WOMMA booty to millenary Illa kalila that you have not been given knowledge but

00:11:59--> 00:12:05

a small amount a little bit. Then after that, he cites the idea

00:12:06--> 00:12:16

that full Metallica, dunya Kali, that everything in the world, all the blessings and all the material possessions of the world and reality are nothing more than a small amount.

00:12:17--> 00:12:37

And after all of this, out of that small amount of knowledge that exists in the world and all the material things that exists in the world, Allah subhanho wa Taala says to the sudo, Lhasa, melodicism, wacana fall through La Jolla, they call the mother Allah has granted you a great favor by giving you knowledge. Therefore pointing out that the greatest thing from all the possessions of this dunya is

00:12:39--> 00:12:49

its knowledge that out of this very little that Allah subhanaw taala has given us out of this very little that allows origin has given us without aka don't do a La Jolla Tisha

00:12:50--> 00:13:03

Memphis, Medina, Razi with Alex De La La Jolla t shirt. This is indicative to how great the rank and how great the status of knowledge and the people of knowledge is.

00:13:06--> 00:13:13

So the if you're wondering, what's the issue here? What's the issue of aqidah that we need to be concerned of and worried of?

00:13:15--> 00:13:23

There are some who claim that the VSA Allahu alayhi wa sallam has access to knowledge at default, just as a lot does.

00:13:25--> 00:13:32

Meaning to be said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam has Animal Aid just as Allah subhanaw taala has animals.

00:13:34--> 00:13:38

There are some incidents cited.

00:13:39--> 00:13:52

Once a hobby, you can find this narration in the other end of Mammon never we. He said that I came to a sort of loss and Allahu alayhi wa sallam to ask the Prophet of Allah, about evil and good.

00:13:53--> 00:14:06

He said, I sat in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before I even uttered my statement. Let me said Allah Azza wa sallam said just that that's Alia. Anil Haley was sure that you came to ask me about Hayden Show.

00:14:07--> 00:14:16

Before he even said it. He said Allahu alayhi wa sallam informed him so they use this as an example. Similarly, we have the example of omega bin,

00:14:18--> 00:14:25

who traveled from Mecca Macatawa, to Madina Munawwara with the intent of assassinating the use of a lot of serum, he had a poisoned weapon.

00:14:26--> 00:14:40

And before he even made his move, maybe said along Ronnie was sort of informed him. And it became very clear to him that there was no way he could know unless there was revelation. So they cite this as an example. And there are other examples cited to

00:14:42--> 00:14:51

the proper understanding of all of these examples is one thing. Nobody said Allahu alayhi wa sallam had knowledge of these incidents through revelation.

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

Let me start Allahu Allah. He was sitting did have knowledge of incidents that would occur in the future. He had intimate knowledge of things that occurred

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

heard in the past, but this was the father of Allah subhanahu wa Tada and the favor of Allah subhanho wa Taala hadn't been said Allahu alayhi wa sallam

00:15:12--> 00:15:21

if Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had access to knowledge without any boundary at all, and his knowledge was equivalent to the knowledge of a lot, what a Hold on What up with it? And

00:15:23--> 00:15:27

then what is the meaning of the iron? Welcome to allemaal hey, let's talk for two minutes.

00:15:28--> 00:15:39

When we saw sort of a saying, even if I have the knowledge, welcome to element right, even if I had knowledge of the Unseen, let's take 30 minutes, I wouldn't be able to increase you in good meaning that's from Allah subhanahu wa Tada.

00:15:40--> 00:15:42

So our belief is

00:15:43--> 00:15:50

the position of the Emerson Nojima in this regard is a sort of loss of Allahu Allahu wa sallam his knowledge was extraordinary.

00:15:51--> 00:16:03

He received revelation. He had knowledge that was beyond the knowledge of any human being. That the end of the day, all mothers that he had, was a gift from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:16:04--> 00:16:25

And if we were to build the case here, in this regard, we can easily build a very strong case. I'll cite one example. And then we'll move forward. The example of the three questions that were presented to the pseudo loss and Allahu Allah, he was sent him through the Jews of Madina, Munawwara

00:16:26--> 00:16:36

they asked me to be sent along it was sent regarding the Astra or sort of lost and alone while he was sitting regarding looked at her name, they asked me to sort along while he was sitting regarding

00:16:39--> 00:16:56

us how because the youth who sought refuge in the cave, when they asked him he said, Allamani was some of these questions and if you said a lot, he said, he said, I will give you the answer. But in that moment, he did not say in sha Allah, days passed by no revelation.

00:16:57--> 00:17:27

And then Allah subhanahu wa Tada revealed the ayah without the colon Alicia in Neva Valley, Kannada Illa Ayisha say inshallah furs. Let's go Rebecca Edina Sita Kalasa, I do not believe in Hadash. Remember your Lord when you forget? Right? You remember ALLAH, you ask Allah. And now what's going to be said a lot. He says in sha Allah revelation starts. And as that revelation comes, and so the loss of a loved one, it will set him very

00:17:30--> 00:17:46

eloquently responds to their questions. Right now he's awesome. He answered everything they asked in detail after revelation. So this is something that you must bear in mind. Here. He cites the I well, I lemma Kamal and Kuntala.

00:17:48--> 00:17:51

wacana father lawyer, amico female Yes.

00:17:55--> 00:18:37

Those little muscle will know how to use and then began to spread and disseminate knowledge by reclaiming among the people. He was in the true sense of the world, the first teacher of goodness in this world in terms of the beauty of his speech, the eloquence of the city quantifies it. That when we say that he said a long while he was Selim was the true first teacher. What do we mean by that? We're not just talking about someone teaching another person another word, because that's in its most raw definition that's existed prior to the pseudo loss a lot ism. What we're speaking of is a comprehensive approach to education, from content to objectives to methodology approach, mentorship,

00:18:37--> 00:19:22

all of this brought together one person that was sort of lost it Allahu Allahu wa sallam was truly the first teacher. So he says, funda son, Allahu Allah. He was telling me he shouldn't be nasty when you didn't obey to him. Then he saw Center began to educate people and spread knowledge. What kind of camera Alleman Oh, one inside if you had it done. Yeah. And then he says fee Gemini Bayani for Sahaja. Listen, he Well, what was it mentally? He wahala what he was Ruby he wanted fish Arathi he wish rocky Rafi way what a habit is Saturday he wanted I'll be well worth Ferrata. Hanani well hockey mission that he was in tiba. He was moving the car. He was validly at work if he didn't if

00:19:22--> 00:19:32

the hiddenness had stopped allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in worth to Melinda, that I was sent as an educator. Yes.

00:19:35--> 00:19:43

In terms of the beauty of his speech, the eloquence of his tongue, the clarity of his expression, the sweetness of his methodology, the subtle references

00:19:45--> 00:20:00

effulgent spirit magnanni kind hardness, extreme compassion, strong and forceful wisdom, great foresight, high intelligence, extreme concern and abundant kindness to people. This can be understood from his own words regarding your

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

So I have been sent as a teacher.

00:20:04--> 00:20:08

Also loss Allah Allah was sent them warns against knowledge which is of no benefit.

00:20:09--> 00:20:26

Before delving into those little loss of Allah audio segments teaching methods, it would be appropriate to mention a few words about the grave concern and warning of this noble teacher against acquiring knowledge, which is of no benefit, he would often even supplicate against such a practice. So here,

00:20:27--> 00:20:35

shahada photograher Dharma, Allah Tala points out that it's important to understand as we embark on this journey of

00:20:38--> 00:20:45

studying, if you said a long way he was sillens methodology in education, that not all knowledge is praiseworthy.

00:20:47--> 00:20:49

That's one of the first realizations

00:20:50--> 00:21:39

that not all education not all knowledge is good for you not all information is good. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would frequently make dua to Allah, Allah, protect me from knowledge, that is harmful. And what is this harmful knowledge, who and he will lead you at the Ala vorderen Li Sahibi. Only lady humaneness it is that knowledge which leads to harm to the individual or to others. Any sort of another's that brings harm to the self, or brings harms rings harm to others is not that you should leave why it was sila to Illa, Cherie Sharon, Bill or even because a path to knowledge, a mean start a path to harm a means to harm is harmful in itself. This is stuff that you

00:21:39--> 00:21:40

should avoid.

00:21:42--> 00:22:05

Now, sometimes when a person gains certain knowledge, they learn how to manipulate others learn how to harm other people, to sort of knowledge should be avoided. People wonder, you know, is that a thing? Can others really be bad for you? Why can't I have access to all knowledge? Why can't I just go around reading everything that's been published in the world.

00:22:07--> 00:22:10

First and foremost, you have to understand that

00:22:13--> 00:22:17

overloading yourself with knowledge is only going to cause you to become overwhelmed.

00:22:19--> 00:22:21

And when you engage

00:22:22--> 00:22:42

excessively with the means, it's easy to forget the goal and objective knowledge has to have a goal and objective as we started off by discussing, so you need to remember what the goals and objectives are, and then take knowledge to help you reach that goal help you reach that objective.

00:22:48--> 00:23:09

And this is an agreed upon reality, that there are certain things that are beneficial for some, while at the same time, those very same things are harmful for others. Fire a blacksmith needs it, a child doesn't ablate, someone who's a skilled chef, they can handle any sharpness on any blade, a child again, they should.

00:23:10--> 00:23:16

In order for knowledge to be beneficial, you have to very carefully craft your way there.

00:23:17--> 00:23:26

It's very this is very dangerous. When people skip the early phases of seeking knowledge in a particular discipline and jump right to the end.

00:23:28--> 00:24:05

This is the common problem that we have in our community. And one of the great downsides to seeking knowledge online through reading articles and listening to random YouTube lectures. Because sometimes you may listen to a lecture or read something in an article that is probably more appropriate and suitable for students of that discipline, who have committed years of their life, versus someone who hasn't committed any time and now you're reading the subject matter and your mind is spinning and you feel that you have the right to hold a position in this regard, or let alone that it just causes you to to be lost.

00:24:07--> 00:24:08

You're puzzled.

00:24:09--> 00:24:47

So when you seek knowledge, you have to build from the bottom up. When you build properly. When you start from the bottom specifically, when we speak Islamic knowledge, you have to build your way from the bottom up. That starts by learning the fundamentals and learning the basics. learning things that you may already know but reading them again, reading them with the teacher, taking it step by step, everything, whether it's the scene of the Quran, you want to do the scene of the Quran marhaba come and do it. But before you do it, there are a list of things that we need to check off the box verse, then we can go and do that. And this applies with anything and everything. You want to

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

compete in any sport at a at an athletic level, you know where you're talking about true competition, you have to build your way up to it. You can't just jump to level 10 without doing the first nine levels.

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

feel that you have any credibility in this regard, forget credibility for others you are going to harm yourself. This is why we are told Kalama NAS Allah taglia Ecoli that you speak to people based off of their levels, what sort of loss of level it was set him said

00:25:18--> 00:25:20

and as you know, NASA Munna Zilla home.

00:25:21--> 00:25:23

Now the issue of this is,

00:25:24--> 00:25:39

for many folks, this is a very difficult conversation to have, because that means that we are putting individuals in tears. And that means that you are claiming that in this regard, I'm inferior, and there's someone superior to me.

00:25:40--> 00:25:43

And my friends, that's the first realization you will need to come to

00:25:45--> 00:25:54

you will need to come to this realization, you will need to accept it. Right. As a matter of shefford, I'm in love with God, he points out

00:25:55--> 00:26:04

the traits of seeking knowledge. Right? That, and one of the things that he says is that you have to be humble.

00:26:05--> 00:26:08

The traits of seeking now he has a line of poetry, it's a really famous one.

00:26:14--> 00:26:46

He talks about intelligence and sacrifice, and that you have to have desire, and you have to be willing to travel. And you also need to be sincere, and he points out that you need to also be patient. Right? And then he talks about this. It's been moderated. And why limit it's better how that moderator feminine will limit that you have to be patient with your with your instructor and in your teacher. So this mindset needs to be created and what exists, you know, slowly grow and you build your way to an end goal.

00:26:47--> 00:27:02

What when is that? Did he Jen, that's why they say the word Darlene. Darlene seeking knowledge, getting education. It's on the scale of the fee. The fee. Yeah, lamb is to announce something all at once.

00:27:03--> 00:27:05

If I if all is whatever occurs all at

00:27:06--> 00:27:48

once, so in Zion, when revelation occurred all at once in Zillow, affiliated ricotta, that's where the alumni they say this was a revelation of the entire Quran at once to the heavens of the earth. Now that very same, if you move it from a fall from the scale of a fall, the RB scale with all three Tenzin one as the Louboutin Zilla, it now gives the meaning of what, something occurring, occurring gradually. That's why the word tibia, it occurs to the region, it occurs gradually, that Aleem as well. Now, that is something that should come into a person's life gradually, for that to occur, it's important that you find gatherings of knowledge that you stick with,

00:27:49--> 00:28:00

that you find a group of people who you're studying with or scholars that you're with, and you take the long route, because the route itself, this long path, is the destination.

00:28:02--> 00:28:36

Right? Once you seek knowledge in this format, you begin to realize that this is the destination and there's nothing beyond it. There's no point where you be there, you say that I am a full blown scholar at this point. The more you seek knowledge, it becomes clear that that end goal that end sort of destination doesn't exist. For some people, that's frustrating because they're very keen on becoming scholars. Well for others who have the right mentorship, they appreciate being students and they realize that this is where I'm always going to be this is my comfort zone. This is where I'm going to be

00:28:37--> 00:28:55

so not all knowledge is beneficial for everyone. Sometimes, as he says will brush up Cindy and Jen be bothered or more. At times, it will be beneficial for someone to remain ignorant of a particular matter that's better for them for them not to know of it

00:28:58--> 00:29:29

will come inside and harder fluid and min heavier element la hija de la Hui, first of all, Ravi P Dini Odin, Yahoo, while the ifI he just uncovered admin only that how many times is a person start gaining knowledge of the obscure and randomness things that don't benefit them? Rather to the contrary, they harm them, and they've wasted years of their life seeking knowledge. But the knowledge was not well, it wasn't strategic. Their approach wasn't strategic. We were talking about this in one of the classes earlier today. This is basically read it.

00:29:31--> 00:29:37

This is literally what Reddit where they have knowledge of everything in the dunya. There's like my foot and there's Reddit.

00:29:40--> 00:30:00

Everything in the world that you want, it's there. Now there are folks who just sit there on these subs and they sit there and they go one after the other after the other after the other. And it's just garbage cooking in their mind. It's like they taken all the contents of their bin and they put it in a pot and they turn the stove on and they're cooking

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

their garbage, that's what's happening. And it just smells horrible and it's decaying in this. It's rotting away in there. Because most of those conversations are not led by specialists and they don't follow a proper methodology of education.

00:30:15--> 00:30:16

Right?

00:30:17--> 00:30:42

It has a lot of utility as well, don't get me wrong, right? You need tutorials, you need to solve something quick. It has benefit. But you have to be careful on how you engage in these areas. Because as you're sitting there and reading and just reading and reading, I can't tell you the number of times where young folks have told me that their greatest fitness emaan came from reading those subreddits.

00:30:43--> 00:30:59

Right, they went to the Muslim one thinking that you know what, I'll read about Islam and learn my Deen. But as they went through, they read more fun and more fun and more fun. They read so much gopher there, that now their mind is polluted. And people who speak on these forums, they speak with a ton of confidence.

00:31:00--> 00:31:13

A ton of they really present themselves as as if they are the authority. So now you're sitting there, you're thinking, Whoa, this dude really blew the whole religion of Islam out of the water. It was confidence.

00:31:15--> 00:31:15

If

00:31:16--> 00:31:59

this person who's reading this was grounded in their faith, and then decided to read an opposing view, that's mashallah, that's a good thing. There's no hydrogen that we are telling people that you shouldn't read opposing views, but you have to ground yourself first. There is an individual who says that I wish to go to college and take a class on philosophy Mashi go for it. Now login Baraka. But before you take that class on, you know, philosophy, where religion for sure will be mocked, and people will ask those hard questions. Before you do that. How about you first study your deen first understand how some scholars approach religion and theology from a philosophical lens.

00:32:01--> 00:32:10

And it's not as if there isn't much written there. Mashallah. I mean, when I'm of the past and present, continue to contribute in this area.

00:32:11--> 00:32:16

you ground yourself first, then move forward. You won't be intimidated.

00:32:17--> 00:32:30

Right, you have to have hidden because it gives you confidence and then allows you to walk in dark alleys with your chest propped up high because you're not afraid to be attacked. You know that your opponent only has sound.

00:32:31--> 00:32:45

Right? They can only talk, ask for substance, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has kept that in Revelation. Because the aim of the insaan is speculative, where we were earlier. But revelation is definitive.

00:32:46--> 00:33:01

And I couldn't see how the mountain can turn left to right from one city to another, they can never be wrong. It is always in this place. On a supplemental life data, right that this is the truth. Yes.

00:33:07--> 00:33:08

How do you find

00:33:09--> 00:33:37

Muslim areas on the authority of Satan about Bumble the Levant, who said also possible? Bhavani was in the news to say, Allah, I seek refuge in You from knowledge which is of no benefit from a heart that is not fearful, a soul that is not satisfied and a drive that is not answered. All four things are connected, actually. All four things are connected. Let me start Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, Oh Allah seek not I seek refuge from others that isn't beneficial.

00:33:38--> 00:33:40

What's the next thing that he made to offer

00:33:42--> 00:33:57

saved me from a heart that is not that isn't fearful. Because when the heart is not in place, the knowledge will not benefit. This is why you have to develop your heart as you're seeking knowledge. And then right next to that woman knifes in

00:33:58--> 00:34:04

that that's a lower self that is just greedy, because that's how the heart gets corrupted.

00:34:05--> 00:34:51

The heart gets corrupted by the nuts. We're now your your your your neffs is out of control, your knifes desires, all the dunya that it can see your lower self is is polluted and it sees things in a perverted way. Now this corrupted knifes will impact the heart and as it impacts the heart the knowledge you gain which is supposed to settle in that heart will also be corrupt. So maybe some sort of mix to offer all of them. And then the last one he says women that within law use the job with no Allah I seek protection from a dua that isn't accepted because ultimately purifying the knifes I should say, controlling the nuts, purifying the heart and obtaining beneficial knowledge is

00:34:51--> 00:35:00

all the gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala we're gonna follow the law here today Kadima as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, this was the great gift of Allah to you

00:35:00--> 00:35:17

are a sort of loss of license. Yes. Also the loss of a lot he will send them was a teacher both in Word and this is therefore a directive, a directive to both the teacher and the student to only teach or learn whatever is beneficial in terms of the peers.

00:35:18--> 00:35:23

Yes. Also the loss of Allah Allah was sometimes a personality as a teacher will stop here.

00:35:25--> 00:35:40

So in this passage, today's class, the main point of emphasis is Be mindful of what knowledge you gain who you gain it from. Anna what's in be also be mindful of what stage you are yourself.

00:35:42--> 00:35:48

There is a desire to jump, people want to quickly jump to the advanced level of studying.

00:35:49--> 00:36:00

If you did this, in any sport, if you try to do this in boxing, you try to get in the ring with an advanced fighter, they would shatter your glass jaw in seconds, you'd have to pick up the pieces from the ground.

00:36:02--> 00:36:05

The same thing will happen to you spiritually, unfortunately.

00:36:06--> 00:36:15

Because when you're standing with heavy hitters, and if you can't understand what they're saying, if you don't appreciate the content, that perspective, it'll wipe you off your feet.

00:36:17--> 00:36:23

So a person who is a beginner, it's important that they study the deen as a beginner.

00:36:24--> 00:36:26

I've seen this happen a lot.

00:36:27--> 00:36:37

Where there is a person who has bare minimum knowledge of Islam. Whether it's a stay at home mother or a,

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

a young

00:36:41--> 00:36:52

man or woman from our community going to college, they haven't because of their life, realities and their circumstances, they haven't had the chance to study the deed. Now when they're at the MSA,

00:36:53--> 00:37:29

they decide to give a Hookah bar to for whatever reason. And Eagle sets in that I know they start opening up Hadith books and they're citing to Ha and giving verdicts that this is the verdict in Islam in this regard because of this, and they start citing proofs and they're doing HD have on the fly. Basically just fabricating opinions as they go on the fly because they feel empowered. Or that sister who started learning to read Hadith and Quran and now feels that she has the authority to go on WhatsApp groups and go on Facebook and start issuing verdicts left and right.

00:37:30--> 00:38:13

A lot of harms caused by this a lot of harms caused. If you have a desire to serve the community in that capacity, you have to put the time in my friends, Bill build yourself. Reading information will give you guidance on a particular issue. But when you study knowledge holistically and properly it builds your mindset and helps you develop a proper wholesome worldview. That's what you need. Understanding these things. We pray that Allah subhanaw taala grants his stuff and makes us from the inheritors of true beneficial knowledge. Well, some law with the add on I see them on the Santa Monica
