00:08:41--> 00:08:51

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Wa Kafa salmonella anybody who lives in stuffer Hassan Allah say the rosary were hot in Milan via his Kia was happening at about

00:08:54--> 00:08:59

700 today we restart our classes. We stopped before I move on

00:09:00--> 00:09:10

today since it's the first session, rather than continuing to read the actual text of shahada, Fatah, Allah, Allah, I thought we'd spend some time

00:09:11--> 00:09:15

covering a subject connected to seeking knowledge.

00:09:17--> 00:09:22

Specifically, the advocates of the ones seeking knowledge,

00:09:23--> 00:09:37

and what are some considerations that you should have in mind as you seek knowledge, so it helps you ensure long subject matters connected. And those of you that are here martial arts students as well. So it'll benefit all of us in Shama.

00:09:39--> 00:09:50

The discussion that we'll have today is a summary of a chapter from Imam Ghazali Rantala Ali's Yeah, one of the

00:09:51--> 00:09:56

where he lists out the etiquettes of the student and teacher

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

so he

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

says that

00:10:15--> 00:10:16

one moment

00:10:27--> 00:10:32

So, this particular chapter is regarding fee I thought there

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

will be any other ama is so what am I,

00:10:38--> 00:10:43

the calamities attached to seeking knowledge

00:10:45--> 00:10:48

and regarding corruptor Allah

00:10:50--> 00:10:52

and also the aroma of the hereafter.

00:10:55--> 00:10:59

So he starts off by saying or that was corrupted on

00:11:01--> 00:11:10

this discussion of corrupt scholars and corrupt whatever is one that's very dear to Imam Hassan, Allah YALI.

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


00:11:12--> 00:11:23

one thing that became very clear to Imam Ghazali, Allahu Allah, who was a student of knowledge and scholar and taught at a very prestigious university of his

00:11:24--> 00:11:29

knee, lumea and interacted with so many people of knowledge

00:11:30--> 00:11:33

that not everyone was doing it with the right intention.

00:11:34--> 00:11:37

And because the reasons weren't, right,

00:11:38--> 00:11:44

if that soil is corrupt, you can't expect anything good to come from there.

00:11:45--> 00:11:57

So if we intend to change anything, within ourselves, our communities or even the world, it needs to start with addressing this rotten soil

00:11:59--> 00:12:02

that we have to start by purifying these hearts and

00:12:03--> 00:12:49

highlighting what the problems are within scholars. Because if people have in and those doing dollar are insincere, and if they are doing things for the wrong reasons, there is no AirFloss that will trickle down into students. By connection of that to the world. What we will see is people are attending gatherings of knowledge, they're taking courses they're traveling to study. But the problem remains the same, that there's corruption and their knowledge itself doesn't fix problems. It's a tool to fix problems. What we have seen in some scenarios is that people gain a lot of knowledge. But rather than using that knowledge to connect with Allah subhanaw taala, they end up

00:12:49--> 00:13:16

using it to establish their own prestige. Or they spend their entire life destroying reputations on other people fighting and arguing, creating some sort of a drama show for the average people to sit by the side and watch and chime in on the comment section. So the purity of this Deen revelation that has the ability to change the trajectory of humanity is lost.

00:13:18--> 00:13:25

It's not because Elon itself can't change people but rather it's because this tool is being used in the wrong manner.

00:13:28--> 00:13:39

Therefore, he mumbles I don't have to lie. Yeah, Holly addresses on me so that if we want change, it has to start with us addressing those that are involved in education.

00:13:41--> 00:13:52

It just takes one person sincerity, one person's care to touch the heart of a young person or an adult, one male, one female of the community for change to occur.

00:13:54--> 00:14:07

You don't need a whole Ummah, people you need one person. Now imagine the impact if there's a whole ummah of people who are working with sincerity and lifeless and are avoiding the traps of shaytaan on this path that lie ahead.

00:14:08--> 00:14:11

If for and I'm the person, a common individual.

00:14:12--> 00:14:24

The traps of shaytaan are abundant than imagine the case for those who are seeking knowledge and actually stand a chance at defeating shaper.

00:14:25--> 00:14:27

Does anyone have a charger for this

00:14:29--> 00:14:32

there's maybe a wire back here that you can use some kind of extension cord

00:14:42--> 00:14:43

I'm sure you've connected

00:14:45--> 00:14:47

there might be some

00:15:01--> 00:15:02

Yes, sir. Okay

00:15:07--> 00:15:15

imagine the number of shayateen that are connected with a single alum, a single student of knowledge,

00:15:16--> 00:15:23

working very hard on just getting them to slip and for them to not take their role in all of this seriously.

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

Never sell yourself short.

00:15:28--> 00:15:33

Don't do things haphazardly. If you're going to do something shoot for the stars,

00:15:34--> 00:16:03

that Insha Allah, Allah subhanahu wa Tada will accept me for the greatest film of the day. No matter what stage of seeking knowledge I'm at. You don't have to be an per se. You don't have to be an Allameh a grand scholar. What you need is knowledge that's beneficial. You need hard work, you need mentors, you need good companions and then change starts. So he starts off in my masala here by saying

00:16:05--> 00:16:07

Who are these corrupt individuals?

00:16:10--> 00:16:18

Whom will levena hospital whom middle element Tang Putana with dunya what also Edelman Zilla during the Alia

00:16:19--> 00:16:28

they are those whose goal and intention from seeking knowledge is a tener omvic Dunya to find luxury in the world.

00:16:29--> 00:16:53

What the Rasul Illman Zeelandia in the earlier and to find a station to reach a place that is respected among people of knowledge. That among students of knowledge I'm viewed as a senior or amongst scholars I am viewed as an author, an orator, someone who has a matam I'm not treated lightly within the circles

00:16:54--> 00:17:05

for called our data to the Allahu ala Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for whatever the Allah Juan narrates from Missoula said Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and the who call that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:17:06--> 00:17:35

mentor Alma Alma. Illman MYM utu hobby he vertical La La Yatta Allahu La UCV hora de minute dunya la mujer de Alpha Jannette Domo TM maybe so long while he was some says Whoever seeks such a knowledge which is supposed to be for gaining the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is for seeking the pleasure of Allah mandala Merryman member used to lobby he was below.

00:17:37--> 00:18:07

He seeks that knowledge. However, what's his intention lie to Allah who Allah You see, when he thought of that minutes in Yeah, this individual is seeking this knowledge to attain some worldly goal, that maybe I'll get invited to this convention or maybe if I seek this knowledge, I can open up some social media account and drop gems on people and gather a great following lie at ILM who Illa you see what he thought of them in a dunya lamea the rfl agenda to multicam.

00:18:08--> 00:18:21

That person will be deprived of the fragrance of gender on the Day of Judgment. This hadith is narrated of a man with old Rahmatullah YALI under the chapter of futala with a military law seeking knowledge for other than Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:18:23--> 00:19:03

Well, if you had either offer a hookah Manta Allah Liuba here behavioral Amma whoever seeks knowledge to compete with scholars. Oh, you might be history for her or to argue with fools. Oh, yesterday probably he will do a nasty lay, or to turn the faces of people in his direction. For who often that person will be in the fire of hell. This hadith is narrated by Imam dealing with Iran with Allah He ally in his sunnah will feed Alika Hadith cathedra and there are many narrations like this from Rasul Allah that along ani who was selling that warmness of seeking knowledge with the wrong intent.

00:19:06--> 00:19:06

When I was young,

00:19:08--> 00:19:11

this incident occurred homeless over 20 years ago.

00:19:13--> 00:19:16

I used to love arguing and fighting a lot. I loved it.

00:19:18--> 00:19:23

So and the mother is this new spread that there's young guy who fights and argues a lot.

00:19:25--> 00:19:37

Someone complained to one of the senior students, I was very new in the madness at the time. This was a common state of your one year two students, usually, they like to argue and fight a lot. Because at that point, you think you know it all.

00:19:39--> 00:19:52

And that was my state, unfortunately. So one senior student, I still remember his name, but I won't mention it. He sat me down, he invited me to his room for tea. He said, you know, break at four o'clock come to my room, we'll have tea together.

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

I said sure. I mean, who doesn't like English tea with some British biscuits? So I sat with him and

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

We had some tea and biscuits, and then

00:20:04--> 00:20:05

he said to me,

00:20:06--> 00:20:09

so why are you seeking knowledge? He asked me this question.

00:20:12--> 00:20:13

And I gave an answer.

00:20:14--> 00:20:15

He said, That's the wrong answer.

00:20:17--> 00:20:37

So I think, give another answer. He said, wrong answer. And I kept going, I kept giving answers because every time he said wrong answer, I felt like he was challenging me. So I went again, I went again, went again. And when he kept saying wrong, it frustrated me. It really did. On one hand, I felt like saying to him, Well, you don't know why I'm seeking knowledge. You don't get to tell me I'm wrong. I can seek knowledge for any reason I want to.

00:20:38--> 00:20:42

But I was patient because I had a feeling that something was going to come out of this I kept giving answers.

00:20:44--> 00:20:45

And then he stopped me and said,

00:20:46--> 00:20:53

the only true and acceptable intention for seeking knowledge must always be first and foremost for the sake of Allah.

00:20:55--> 00:21:11

And it hit me that he was right. If I accepted it, if I concede it in that moment and let my ego go and let the arrogance fall aside, he was right. That the one true reason for seeking knowledge is the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala all other intentions come later

00:21:12--> 00:21:27

that this is about building a dialogue with Allah subhanaw taala and oh no, that should that should be our intention that how can I use this moment to draw closer to Allah? How does your such that improve the moment you walk out of this gathering?

00:21:28--> 00:21:50

How does your thicket become more consistent in your life will leave this place? If that's the intention that you have Allah subhanahu wa Tada will open your heart in ways that are unimaginable today. Because Allah subhanaw taala is the one who guides those that are sincere, he always takes care of those that are sincere look at the story of cinema fantasy to do.

00:21:53--> 00:22:04

So in this hadith, we see Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warning of faulty intentions. When you go to seek knowledge, you start off with doing it for the sake of Allah alone. And then secondly,

00:22:05--> 00:22:06

for your own improvement.

00:22:08--> 00:22:30

How can I become a better person? How does this impact me? And then after that, we can talk about contributions and how to impact the world and so on. This doesn't mean that you spend 30 years of your life improving yourself while ignoring others. If you are a person of knowledge. It means that you do both things together but your primary priority is focusing on yourself.

00:22:31--> 00:22:54

That if you aren't practicing something and if your intention is not correct, that it bothers you, that it keeps you awake at night that before you speak you do the other you ask Allah for protection that yeah, Allah What am I doing? Yeah, Allah guide. You've guided people before you can guide me to Allah and I mean, that should be your goal that should that should be your main focus.

00:22:56--> 00:22:58

You emphasize with Allah Allah then says,

00:22:59--> 00:23:02

we'll call about the self that some of the righteous scholars said.

00:23:03--> 00:23:07

I shall do nasty in Adama to handle mode Alim and Moffat.

00:23:08--> 00:23:15

The person who has the greatest regret at the time of death is a scholar who did not stay within their boundaries.

00:23:16--> 00:23:26

Someone who disobeyed Allah subhanaw taala because then Adama the regret there is that I could have had it. Had the knowledge I put in the time made the sacrifice traveled the world

00:23:27--> 00:23:33

put the hours in, but I lost out on the reward because I couldn't control myself

00:23:35--> 00:23:42

while I'm and then hold on an island on an island and your full mobile alarm anyone know

00:23:43--> 00:24:18

what a Sally Hakuna czar hidden well morally than animal Bahat Illa and we Emelina who Enya Tala Mina dunya manasota Liana who lay psychologism In your club will call you up with a call for in the NASA team. He says that and know that it is the responsibility of the scholar. To first and foremost establish a diploma will allow me to one lie that you prioritize in your life, the commands of Allah and you prioritize staying away from the things that Allah subhanaw taala has prohibited you from.

00:24:19--> 00:24:37

Make that your priority that how can I bring the alignment the things that are commanded by Allah into my life? And how can I avoid the things that Allah subhanaw taala has prohibited me from? This is a moment for you to pause and reflect that where in my life am I falling behind on the alignment of the commands of Allah?

00:24:38--> 00:24:39

Personal question

00:24:40--> 00:24:42

Where am I falling weak?

00:24:44--> 00:24:47

When shaytaan whispers and calls me to disobedience of Allah,

00:24:48--> 00:24:51

how am I standing up and correcting myself?

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

Then he says well acela who Elisa ally, cool Asahi, then what about in mobile hot that you don't

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

Need to avoid things that are permitted in Islam? Some people they think righteousness is to avoid things that are permissible in Islam. So hey then why didn't I didn't know about hot things that are allowed? In that I know who? Ye Medina, who is the color laminate dunya Misurata. There are some people, however, who are looking for that higher goal and they're really trying to push themselves to the next level. And you have the natural ability. You have the natural capacity to live with little and make the sacrifices then go ahead. But at the same time, remember, laser color just mean yet with the color. Not every human being can tolerate little. Some people need more food, some

00:25:39--> 00:25:52

people need less. He cites what do we understand California rahamallah data. It has said regarding percent. So Fianna 30 recom. Allah, God are hustling not on that he was someone that enjoyed his meal.

00:25:53--> 00:25:59

He enjoyed a good meal. What can you afford in the data in LM toxin la half in other Nam dama.

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

He would say that an animal if you don't give it the right fodder, and if you don't feed it properly, it won't.

00:26:06--> 00:26:32

It won't work, it will work in the field, it'll get exhausted. And same as the body. People are constantly looking for ways to sleep less and eat less, where these are good sacrifices to, you know, hope for so you can be more productive during the day and not giving to your own constant temptations. It's not always a good thing as well, our chef and I'm alone with our ladies to tell us sleep as much as you need eat as much as you need.

00:26:33--> 00:26:43

He would say however, try to focus more on speaking less, in Teskey These are three things that they promote three soon after Skia

00:26:44--> 00:27:22

these are the three fundamental principles of the soul Fantasea what are they? Pillar two, pillar two Tom kiloton Manam Tila Tequila, that you sleep less, you eat less, and you speak less. So he would say to us that people are different. And in today's world with, you know, the comforts that we've become accustomed to, as students, he would tell asleep as much as you can, as much as you need. Sleep extra, give yourself and I would say give yourself those eight hours that your body may need. So you can be productive while you're awake. Otherwise, if you sleep less, you're going to be groggy, deprived of energy, so much sleep debt build up,

00:27:24--> 00:27:37

you won't be productive. So sleep as much as you need. He would say regarding peloton, eat as much as your body needs, again, not to be unhealthy. It was very particular and will get upset when he would see people who weren't looking after their health.

00:27:41--> 00:27:55

There were some students who had come to Mother Teresa. And you know, students are students and you're young. So you're sleeping, and then you realize, oh, it's class time. So you wake up brush your teeth do you will do run straight to class.

00:27:56--> 00:27:59

If you found out the students weren't doing breakfast,

00:28:00--> 00:28:13

and then he said maybe the reason why the students aren't having their breakfast is because the dining hall is in the opposite direction of the classrooms. Because there was a big dining hall but it was in the opposite direction had to walk all the way there.

00:28:14--> 00:28:23

So then he instructed the management from now on, every single students breakfast will be placed individually outside their classroom, outside the door.

00:28:25--> 00:28:32

So every classroom had a door outside. And your pastry would be sitting there. The percolator tea was there, you get your breakfast and go inside.

00:28:34--> 00:28:52

It's kind of awkward because people wouldn't clean up after themselves in the classrooms are getting messy. But it was his love that he did this because he said that no student should go to class without having breakfast. How are you going to study if you're hungry, and if you don't have energy. But then at the same time, you also notice one time that the students, some of them are putting weight on.

00:28:54--> 00:29:25

So you called the cook. This is while I was there, by the way. And he said to him, are you using unhealthy ingredients to cook for the students? Because they're putting weight on? So he scolded him too. And said From now on, you will avoid this, this and this and cook like this, this and this. So there's a balance in the middle. But the third thing that he really emphasized was filler to learn to speak less. And this is one thing he emphasized all the time. And oh Allah how much trouble did I get in with CIF he said because I couldn't control this problem.

00:29:29--> 00:29:33

And the problem was every time he would see me, I would be saying something I don't know what I'd be saying But speaking

00:29:35--> 00:29:41

and when he would get angry he wouldn't say something to me. That would have been so much easier. He would just look at me.

00:29:43--> 00:29:47

Now Allah subhana wa Tada shower has gray with immense mood.

00:29:49--> 00:29:52

His harshness was so appreciated.

00:29:53--> 00:29:55

His other was so appreciated

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


00:30:02--> 00:30:19

Man who has come to LA he continues and he says women's work not so there he listed some of the characteristics of corrupts others. Now he goes and focuses on on among other people who focus on the akhira. He lays out some traits, some characteristics,

00:30:20--> 00:30:22

or municipality or Allameh, elaphe era

00:30:24--> 00:30:26

and yeah, Alamo and duniya hotteok.

00:30:27--> 00:30:29

What an asset Sharifah tune.

00:30:31--> 00:30:34

Well under Houma cover routine, there are 10 codes.

00:30:35--> 00:30:35


00:30:37--> 00:31:01

And he says from the characteristic of characteristics of the Annamma, acela, sincere Lama who are searching for the pleasure of Allah, that they understand very well, that this world and everything it possesses is lowly. Don't have dreams for fancy schmancy cars and to live luxurious lives don't have those dreams if they come on Hamdan. If they don't come, don't make that your life goal.

00:31:03--> 00:31:04

You have to internalize this.

00:31:06--> 00:31:10

Well and then aka diva, and the Astra is one that carries true honor.

00:31:11--> 00:31:39

That's what you should desire. That's what you make dua for that's what you ask Allah for. asking Allah for the dunya is not a bad thing. I think Dinya Hassan our Phil asked it it hasn't this is the most common law so the law said a lot instead of as narrated about meaning I shut the alarm wanna beautiful to automate or burn it and after dunya Hassan Oh Allah give us good in this world are Phil accurate hasn't walked in. And the interesting thing for those for those of you that are

00:31:41--> 00:31:47

keen on language, both of these are Nikita, Hassan Hassan are both lucky and they're not modified.

00:31:48--> 00:31:58

And that obscene implication of this is quite beautiful. If you were to read a seat, and just look at the commentary on Freedonia Hasina, and then

00:32:00--> 00:32:09

what Phil Avenatti Hustler, that what is this referring to? You'll find many opinions there. Because the fact that Smarty it's Nikita and not modified fate anyway.

00:32:12--> 00:32:17

For whom youth You don't ask you, for those scholars prefer the hereafter?

00:32:19--> 00:32:25

Well, not to Holly follow whom work while whom, and their actions and statements don't contradict us.

00:32:26--> 00:32:29

While you're cool, you may know him in aluminum foil,

00:32:30--> 00:32:53

and therefore they are constantly inclined towards knowledge that benefits them in the hereafter. While you're still the winner, the Illuminati you still know nothing. Oh, ha. Ethan Lima. Yeah. He says that and so therefore, they avoid those sciences that have little benefit. So they can spend more time studying and learning that which has a lot more benefit.

00:32:55--> 00:33:14

Gamma Rubia and shafiqul. ballsy and the hookah really hurt him, but saved any mood that and further talent. It says that as teacher once asked a student that you've spent such a extensive time with me, so what did you learn? Tell me all that. He said.

00:33:15--> 00:33:16

I learned eight things from you.

00:33:18--> 00:33:30

And Mike Gula the first thing for me in a vertical healthy for either Kulu chefs in Lahoma. The first thing I learned is that I looked at the creation and I noticed that everyone has a beloved

00:33:32--> 00:33:36

fee that was like, you know, covery Farakka, who Malibu

00:33:37--> 00:33:40

and then when that person reaches his grave, his beloved has gone.

00:33:42--> 00:33:51

Everyone falls in love. But when they reach their grave, their beloved is not seen anywhere. Fragile to Goobie Hassan at least Hakuna evil.

00:33:52--> 00:33:56

So I made good deeds, my beloved, so they will be with me in my grave.

00:33:58--> 00:34:14

Well, I'm Nathania for in Nina Datu illa podila heeta Allah, what I had enough sun in hell. As for the second lesson, I pondered over the statement of Allah 100 NAFSA and in Hawa, and he prevented himself from his temptations, and he presented himself from the temptation.

00:34:17--> 00:34:33

Fudge head to happy definitely hell. So I forced my enough's to avoid my inner self to avoid engaging and succumbing to temptations. Hatha is a cobra Tala Tala dilla until it became firm and settled

00:34:35--> 00:34:37

on being content with obedience of ALLAH SubhanA.

00:34:40--> 00:35:00

Wa Metallica as for the third lesson for in nero a to Kula mama who shaped the whole team in the WHO yeah photo that I saw that any person that has anything of value focuses very much on preserving it. Yeah for them. If you have something of value to

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

care but you have expensive jewelry. You don't leave it lying around you put it in a safe

00:35:05--> 00:35:11

you have a fancy car you don't leave it outside the garage. The daily driver stays outside the garage where does the fancy one go?

00:35:12--> 00:35:14

Inside the garage, especially if you live in

00:35:15--> 00:35:17

Texas you have to worry about hail.

00:35:20--> 00:35:28

Somebody told me he subhanho wa Taala then I pondered over the statement of Allah. MA in the commune further Rama in the LA hipath

00:35:29--> 00:35:33

That that which is with you will perish and that which is with a law will remain

00:35:37--> 00:36:09

for Coloma Wazza is shaping the whole thema with Jeff to who la he up Caliendo. So anytime I had anything of value, I directed it to Allah subhanho wa Taala so it will remain with me forever. This is phenomenal because what we're learning here is that anything that your heart desires, you change their perspective of how you're going to engage with it and what utility it will have in your life. What is this going to do? Why am I buying this car? Why am I buying this house? Why am I seeking this knowledge? Why will I take all this career path?

00:36:11--> 00:36:12

What just to who?

00:36:14--> 00:36:46

La I turned it in every director to Allah Subhana Allah without Lea Familia and so I will find it with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. Well, I'm a Robbia. As for the fourth thing for any writer Nazjatar Gerona, et al Maliwan, Huseby, Musharraf, I noticed, by pondering and studying people, that everyone keeps coming back to their wealth, their lineage, their prestige, that these are things that people fall back on and I'm from so and so clan from so and so people I'm from so and so country, they take pride in that this is my wealth.

00:36:48--> 00:36:53

Well, they said we say what all the reality is, they don't mean anything.

00:36:54--> 00:37:28

These things come and go. They don't have any value. Further tequila Colita Allah. So I pondered on the statement of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Rama Kona and Allah He thought, the most honorable, honorable of you are those that are most conscious, for I'm into tequila, so I made my deeds within the boundaries of tequila. In short, everything that I did was embedded within the consciousness of Allah subhanho wa taala, sports, recreation, travel family time, that in all of it, I kept ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada close to

00:37:31--> 00:37:36

a corner in the hookeri man. So in return, I will be honorable in the sight of Allah subhana

00:37:38--> 00:37:46

wa melcombe Isa. As for the fifth thing for me, right and NASA yet the hasta Doom, I noticed that people are very jealous towards one another.

00:37:47--> 00:37:53

They're always competing classmates, the jealousy is almost tangible,

00:37:54--> 00:37:58

that someone's soul person heard 100 Records I'm going to read 150

00:37:59--> 00:38:04

So and So person got 100 in the exam, I'm gonna get 101 happens by the way.

00:38:07--> 00:38:20

Even the percentage is supposed to be capped at 100 they push it to 101 somehow. So there's the other hospital siblings have jealousy and, and co workers and you know, they say

00:38:21--> 00:38:25

that people that you will be jealous of most in your life are actually those that are closest to you.

00:38:27--> 00:38:30

Therefore, in the science of general Katadyn

00:38:31--> 00:38:39

criticism towards narrators if two individuals are from the same generation and delivered at the same time their criticism is taken with a grain of salt

00:38:40--> 00:38:45

with a pinch of salt. Why is that because the ruling is a little more

00:38:47--> 00:38:49

people of one generation tend to have a

00:38:51--> 00:38:54

little bit of a friction at a masala

00:38:56--> 00:38:59

Hello whenever they have some friction between

00:39:00--> 00:39:08

finding the right to nasty at the hospital for an adult to feed for an adult if you only eat Allah or some Boehner whom Marisha to whom first adopted acid.

00:39:10--> 00:39:20

You said I noticed that people were very jealous towards one another side pondered over the statement of Allah insha Allah subhanho wa Taala says that we are the ones who distributed their livelihood among them. Were the one who gave

00:39:22--> 00:39:28

so I stopped being jealous because I realized that I wasn't in competition against the individual I was in competition against Allah.

00:39:29--> 00:39:31

And I wasn't interested anymore.

00:39:32--> 00:39:46

If one person had memorized 23 jewels and I had memorized 15 years, all I can say was an hamdulillah Nanoka Santa Lena whom my Isha to whom Phil highlighted them. Yeah. What I found out about them not yet yet.

00:39:50--> 00:40:00

Anyway, but Allah subhanaw taala tells us and he's the one who gives so one person has height you don't have it. Why be jealous of having one person

00:40:00--> 00:40:17

In a stronger than you are in 100 law, one person is smarter than you are 100 some person you in your eyes objectively has more beauty and every person has their own thing, you know? And if you're angry you're not angry at that person you're just letting it out on that person in reality who is your qualm? Actually with

00:40:19--> 00:40:20


00:40:22--> 00:40:34

Masada as for the sixth thing, right? Yet I don't I so people have great animosity towards one another previous one was jealousy this one is they

00:40:35--> 00:40:36

they take each other as enemies

00:40:38--> 00:41:05

for about two feet totally heeta Allah. So I pondered over the statement of Allah azza wa jal in the shaytaan Allah Kumada when photography Dubois dua, that shaytaan is your enemy, so take him as your enemy, Fatah rock to other words, what the hell was she thought? What do I do? Ah, so I stopped spending my energy on hating others because I already had an enemy that Allah instructed me to avoid. And I gave all of my energy to shaitan

00:41:06--> 00:41:08

I didn't have time to focus on other people.

00:41:10--> 00:41:28

I had to focus on shaytaan because he is a skilled opponent. Very skilled. He is a worthy opponent. If you have two opponents in front of you once a week one the other one's a tough one. Do you focus on the weak? What are the tough one? If you're playing defense and basketball and you got two guys rushing your way, who do you focus on?

00:41:31--> 00:42:01

For Focus on the skill one you keep the other one in the corner of your eye is from here just kind of know where they are. But your focus is where I'm this one right here. Because anything that happens any command that person has in reality will be a result of this person. That person is Busan as we say it's extra, this is the person that's going to be the dangerous one. So when you have multiple enemies you don't look at the guy who has not in his hand you look at the one that has a gun in his hand. And you run from both of them

00:42:02--> 00:42:04

the one with a non will kill you slowly.

00:42:07--> 00:42:09

Savea Serbia as for the seventh thing

00:42:11--> 00:42:16

or you are a to whom you the Luna and for some fee, Tala the recipe,

00:42:17--> 00:42:25

I noticed that people are willing to humiliate themselves for the sake of seeking worldly sustenance.

00:42:27--> 00:42:40

They will go against their own principles. Here. We're not talking about doing meager or tasks that others may look down upon society. We're not talking about that. Here. We're talking about you the Luna infosum What are we speaking of here?

00:42:42--> 00:42:52

Sacrificing your own principles, something that you know by doing this, you are disgracing yourself, you're doing something haram that goes against what you believe in, you're selling yourself out

00:42:56--> 00:43:05

for another two feet, only the other woman but in the Illa Allah here to squat. So I pointed over the statement of Allah that there is not a

00:43:06--> 00:43:07


00:43:08--> 00:43:12

in this earth, but its sustenance is on Allah.

00:43:13--> 00:43:19

First of all to be Mala, who is Alia Ouattara to Mallya and so I focused on that.

00:43:21--> 00:43:26

I focused on that the Mandela who Allah that which He has over me,

00:43:27--> 00:43:32

those rights that he has over me, I didn't sacrifice my principles. I stood firm.

00:43:33--> 00:43:36

And then in return, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada took care of me.

00:43:37--> 00:43:51

I'm a feminist. I'm a feminist for the eighth thing is the last on the list. Are you the right to whom Otowa Kareena ala T jaati. was Santa Fe him was the hottie Abbot Danny. I saw them always relying

00:43:52--> 00:44:03

on their trade, and they're in their, in their businesses, their their skills, and the health that they had in their body.

00:44:05--> 00:44:08

But our call to our Allah Allah, I decided to rely on Allah.

00:44:11--> 00:44:36

And Allah subhanho wa Taala always took care of me. So these things right here, they're very beautiful, these eight things that he lists out because what he's saying here is that these were lessons that I learned from knowledge and in Amazon, he lists them because he's saying that this is what beneficial knowledge does. It shows you the world for what it is. It teaches you a new lesson. It allows you to see things from a different perspective.

00:44:38--> 00:44:42

Woman Sephardi Allah Allah Farah and from the traits of the

00:44:43--> 00:44:47

scholars who focus on the hereafter,

00:44:48--> 00:44:51

and your coolamon kabhi, Lena Salatin, mokhtari Xena and

00:44:52--> 00:44:54

he talks about how these are people

00:44:56--> 00:44:58

who avoid sitting with royalties.

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

with people from,

00:45:03--> 00:45:07

you know, politicians, they avoid their gatherings.

00:45:08--> 00:45:21

And again, keep in mind in a Islamic context here, where you have Muslim leadership, and they understand that in order to persuade their congregations, they need religious

00:45:22--> 00:45:39

legitimacy. So when they wish to pass something that causes harm, or is contradictory to Sharia, they have to implicitly or explicitly involve the scholars. Anyway, because it is saying, we've seen this all the time.

00:45:40--> 00:45:43

Something that may not apply much, at least in our western context, because of

00:45:45--> 00:46:19

that reality not existed, but to a degree, it does still remain. And then he quotes a few statements, and I won't go through all of them, because this is something that doesn't necessarily directly abundantly apply to us. But there's one statement that he quotes that I'll share, but about the solid all about the self, that some of the scholars that pass it in Nikola to see Mindon Yeah, whom che and Illa Assawoman de nica availment, that you may think you're gonna get something out of them, than if I go and meet those people. I'll force them to give me something. But the problem is every one thing that you will get out of them, how many will they take from you?

00:46:20--> 00:46:21


00:46:22--> 00:46:29

you will have to make 100 compromises before you get one thing out of them. And that's why politics are very sketchy.

00:46:30--> 00:46:41

Every time a new Muslim politician comes up and says they're representing Muslims, it's scary. Because they will choose one matter, and then sacrifice another 100.

00:46:42--> 00:46:50

And then at the end of it, you're thinking, man, what good did you actually bring? Because the beast does won't conform to you.

00:46:52--> 00:46:56

Question is, how long will it take before you reach full conformity or you get the boot?

00:46:57--> 00:46:59

That's how politics work.

00:47:00--> 00:47:00


00:47:02--> 00:47:22

The question is, how long will you conform it, you will get the beast to conform to you, because they are in a position of authority. So this is the point that he's bringing up here. He says woman's woman's slip out there Alama off it off, and from the traits of the scholars of the Hereafter at the Southern Ireland fatwa, while you've to elaborate on

00:47:23--> 00:47:43

that they are not quick and passing verdicts. They don't give religious rulings unless they aren't yet Dhaka University unless they are certain that what they are saying is correct. Now obviously you can never be 100% Right, but you've put effort into it that you've given the squad you've sought shoot or you're not just speaking off the cuff.

00:47:49--> 00:48:08

He then quotes Abdur Rahman, and maybe Laila, a doctor if you haven't messaged me, I thought, Well, she didn't. I mean, it's hard. So lots and lots of them. I saw over 120 companions of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, and not one of them was asked a question in law what the hookah hedonic, but they wish that someone else answered it. They would avoid speaking.

00:48:10--> 00:48:22

He says Then, for an Umbrella Academy of Columbia, the owner, Mr. Young. Now the matter has come to people by the way he's speaking from a generation of tabular is he's not talking about 2022 America

00:48:23--> 00:48:43

2022 fatwas online he's not talking about that. So matar an umbrella Akademia coolamon yet their own Illuma Leon. Now the matter has come to a group of people who claim knowledge today, you start the Munna algebra with fimasartan. They are very quick to answer questions. Not only that we had the same question be presented to

00:48:45--> 00:48:53

all whenever you have Tom, la Gemma, Arielle battery was the Chateau he would have gathered the Sahaba who participated in the Battle of brother and sought their advice.

00:48:54--> 00:49:02

Meaning it was such a big matter in front of them that several know how you know who are in the law here, I think. But in the eyes of people, these things have gone away.

00:49:04--> 00:49:07

Women so far to him and from their traits,

00:49:08--> 00:49:35

a Hakuna at Farah, Buffy him finished real mill family up to where you cut them. Kulu well, how you doin was always that the traits of these righteous scholars is that they exert themselves and seeking knowledge that connects them to actions. And what I used to do, specifically, that which robs you of the reward of your actual

00:49:36--> 00:49:53

doing the deed is one thing but they're interested in finding out how will I end up losing my reward what corrupts the good deed and what causes laziness? Complacency in the heart? What increases you hate children with salaries, what increases the whispers of shaytaan these are things that they prioritize

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

women suffer to him

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

Albatron Sr. Madi, Cherie Sharia,

00:50:06--> 00:50:13

and he says from their trades is that they search they search for the secrets of religious commands.

00:50:15--> 00:50:19

Why did Allah tell us to pray? What am I looking for what is the hokum of Allah and such that

00:50:20--> 00:50:41

what is the secret of Al Fatiha? What is the secret of Allahu Akbar? What's the secret of what's the lesson? The secret here is speaking of how does this connect me to Allah? What's the greater lesson behind this I have the Quran that I'm reading or this Masjid that I'm sitting in this hedge that I'm about to perform this Omaha this the luff.

00:50:43--> 00:50:56

battleline, a surah, Manisha and the last one, Mr. Fatty him and from their traits. It develops the habit of traveling to follow the companions and their successors

00:50:58--> 00:51:00

and to avoid all innovations.

00:51:01--> 00:51:06

With this, he completes the chapter. It's a brief chapter, but it's a beautiful one.

00:51:08--> 00:51:10

It's the last chapter of this capability.

00:51:11--> 00:51:16

And with this ambisonic a lot he then goes into the next chapter Kitab taharah Asad wa

00:51:18--> 00:51:29

wa salatu wa Taala it is a fascinating chapter. But if Allah gives us maybe another day, okay that Allah subhanaw taala accepts and grants to fish with almond upon what we learned was that Allah without us and I'm Hamid stem on it
