nobody can you turn these lights on I think there's one of those switches
if you guys are cold we can turn the fans off boys you can leave them as switches are back there
hamdu Lillahi wa salam ala diverticula Hina Stouffer to say hello to Milan via
Nicolas key I was happy that I'm alive.
Today we continue our class from chapter 15 julabo hoods of Allahu alayhi wa sallam
when entering question wouldn't rely on simply answering based off of what was asked,
rather than the person alone while he was sitting would give more than what the questioner had proposed.
Hello, hello, slaughter cinema. mollify my mom replying to more than what what has, at times also lost a little audio send them would give a more detailed reply than what he was asking. He's on the low audio so that we did so when he felt that the questioner needed to know more than what he had asked. This again shows his profound kindness and the consideration he gave to students and those who came to seek knowledge.
In America, I would I would marry on the authority of Ebola the alarm said a person from the from the Benny with EJ tribe asked also allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, O rasool Allah, we sail upon the sea, and we carry very little water with us, if we make will do with it, we will experience thirst should we make will do with seawater, and also the loss of aloha to send and reply. It meaning seawater is extremely pure, and it's naturally
dead fish is lawful. Here, we see that this hobby asked us for the loss of a loved one. These are people who spent a lot of time in the ocean in the sea of ships in a couple of bars.
And when we when they will go on these expeditions, long journeys, we're not going to eliminate that. We don't take too much water with us. We reserve the space for other things, food and any other tools they would need for their journey
for NaVi auditioner now the little water that we do have that we've brought on the ship with us if we do blue with that water, we will then die of thirst because the water from the ocean cannot be person can't drink it too salty.
So they weren't sure. Are we even allowed to use the water of the ocean for
now, from our perspective? Of course you can but that's because we know for the Companions, this was a new encounter for them. They were dealing with water that had a very, like say like, very salty taste to it.
People wouldn't drink from it. So if we wouldn't drink from it if we don't consume it. Is it something that we're not supposed to do with or with just a genuine question? The question was about doing Moodle so they can press a lot while they were traveling on ships. What are sort of Lazar Allahu Allah, he was sent in response, he says, who ruled
that the ocean is such that its water is pure. You can do all that with all the holes you want. They even do with the water of the ocean.
Roommate. This is these yellow. This is the extra part. So they asked the first part, have you seen a loved one, he was sort of responded that you can do blue with the water of the ocean. But the part that he added that they didn't ask about was until you made them do that it's also permissible for you to eat whenever you find in the ocean.
Now, obviously, there's a difference of opinion among the jurist on the issue. You have one side, Maliki chef is an herbalist who take a broader stance on this, and they say St. Luba, everything, all animals found in the ocean, or majority of them, they have permission to eat them. Some of them do have conditions that an equivalent of that animal must be found within the land that you can eat. Right.
The other thing is, we said that the holiday position on this matter is that when it comes to
seafood, fish is permitted. So lots of love money was sitting in the Dubai when talking about
Mitani. With the van, we're talking about two dead things that are permissible to eat that do not require a sacrifice. So that he said a summer quarter on one of them is the fish. So fish is something that you don't need to sacrifice, you don't need to take it and say Bismillah Allah, I know that we have, you don't need to do that. But naturally, it's hard for you, you can eat it all you want to. So that will happen if you allow consumption efficient, only. So anything that fits under the definition of fish they allowed based off of this device, Rasulullah sallallahu Senna managing good majority of the scholars went to a more general approach to the narration. And they
said that anything that's from the ocean, they give permission to eat it based off this Eli.
Target the attention of the question are away from the actual question posed. So this is another approach of a sort of loss of alarmism as a teacher, you have to ask yourself, is the question being asked even appropriate? Just because someone asks you a question doesn't mean you need to respond to it or you should respond to it. You need to think to yourself, that this question that was asked is the right question. So in that moment, you're thinking on behalf of the student and also on behalf of the gathering? CONGREGATION. Sometimes someone may ask the question, and your response to them would be instead of this, you should be asking that your mind should be in that direction. Not here.
You're too narrow your mind is last year, you're focusing too much on one issue while ignoring five other important issues. So lifter who sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asserted in our daily Mass.
Slaughter redirected the attention of the people. Sometimes the person says that
they say that the shift that how do I
experience a hard in my slot?
How do I experience it lofty spiritual stating
it myself? The interesting thing is, this sort of question isn't common. Among the this sort of question isn't common among the sahaba. And neither is one that you'll find commonly asked to the AMA in the past. And the reason is, because not that it doesn't exist, it's not communism. And the reason is because A has a spiritual state. You know, when you're praying, sometimes you feel something special, or tears rolling down in your heart that's really connected in that moment. A heart is a gift from Allah. And a gift is given when the one who was giving it wishes to give it
you can manufacture it how you can artificially created
therefore mana should be Tommy, Allahu Allah while addressing this issue, he actually said to the student, that chasing after a while, will be your spiritual demise. Because you're focusing on something that is beyond your capacity. You need to focus on what's in your capacity, and that is to pray your salah, in accordance to the Sunnah, with as much focus as you can.
Now whether you experience something or not, whether that's a special slot for you, whether it's one of those salons that your heart is just pouring itself out, that's up to Allah Subhan without it, sometimes you listen to the Quran and you just hear one eye on it touches your heart, allows Majan has given you a moment, that time for your heart to experience something a person has to offer on the Kaaba, and they do so many thoughts and every so often they're just looking for something they're waiting, you know, I'm going to have an opening, I'm going to have an opening. And at times that opening occurs towards the end of the journey. Sometimes it's the first moment you look at the
Kaaba at times. Unfortunately, there is no opening on their particular
If you can't be frustrated by that, what you need to hold yourself accountable to is fulfilling the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in line with Shediac shadowy guidelines while trying to bring yourself spiritually to as much as focused as you can. So this is where sometimes the questioner may ask one question that the teacher will need to take the question or somewhere else that in reality, you shouldn't be asking this
bloody Muslim Mary on the authority of anisopliae law on that a person sent a little muscle as he was sending them. What is the hour? Was
he someone like he was sending replied, What have you prepared for? For his question was more about fat? When is the Day of Judgment? Or sort of loss? And a lot more? And even some didn't like that question, because the answer to this was known by no one, other than Allah, no human being or angel knows the answer to when it's a day of judgment.
So we're a sort of loss of Allah, millenniums, and cannot give this person a satisfactory answer that he was searching for an exact date and time, maybe so Allah, why they will sort of took them to what mattered more, because of the judgment will occur when Allah wills for it to occur. It could be tomorrow could be 100 years from now, it could be 1000 years from now.
But regardless of what, sorry, regardless of when the day of judgment occurs, from the individuals perspective, the question is, when it occurs, the question should be what am I prepared for it to occur?
If it were to occur now, with what face when I stand in front of Allah subhanaw taala? What deeds do I have in place? So while this person was fact searching, maybe some Allah why they stopped him right away? And said, No, that's not what we're looking at. The question should be what have you prepared for the day of judgment?
And this is important. You'll have people I'm not sure if I share this episode with you guys. Not too long back there was a young man who came to me, I was traveling and he was in the car. So he started asking me all these questions.
He's half of the Quran High School.
He said, Chef, have a question.
We're driving for one hour stuck in traffic.
So he's, uh, you know,
he started the story online. There's one brother who said something to another brother who responded to him and did a video. And this guy responded to him. And then he said, That's Jeff got involved. He told me something for 45 minutes to some crazy soap drama.
It was wild, like this guy did reputation and it's him. This guy. We're looking and saying, This guy's followers and this and that guy did a video like this. And he sat there and told me this whole story.
At the end of it, he asked me, Schiff, what are your thoughts? What advice do you have?
So my honest advice to him was, my honest advice to him. You know, my response to him was, when he asked me Schiff, what is your opinion about all this? All this drama? I turned to him and I said, Hi, did you get the hang of it last night? And I wasn't sure I was serious. I cared for the gym. I asked him, did you get the 100 last night? He said, No, I didn't. I said, don't waste your energy and all these things.
Focus on your own.
You might think that I've been passive in ignoring it. But the truth is, neither URI will be asked about this. I'm not a part of this person's dunya. Neither are you. You're a half of the Quran, preserve your Quran greater than 200 salah. I told him, You are a young man that has written potential. I can see you one day sitting at the column cemetery. But I want you to prepare yourself first, make yourself worthy and make dua to Allah has a budget, all this other stuff that's going on all this nonsense. And the worst of all these people are linked. I keep forgetting their names, what do they call?
The other side is people who don't do anything but just like they don't have anything to do with the problem. And then reaction people.
Even the guys who make this reactive use, they're the most vital thing is they have no involvement in the whole problem. It's not like they're refuting or they're responding. But I think they're just providing their thoughts from the outside, that from my opinion, maybe the IEA that this person was rather than his reaction people, they're the most powerful people in the world. May Allah, Allah protect us from all of this?
This is an important point of this teaching approach. For this teacher has to be intelligent and smart.
Don't take every question and answer it don't fall for the bait. Even as a parent, as a teacher, as a coach, as a mentor, you need to ask yourself if you want to answer that question. If you think that question, there's merit or benefit to it.
If you answer every question, you may end up causing a lot of harm to the student because the now for
Then it's all about finding the next question. What's the next thing I can ask? What's the next thing I can ask? When you stop a person a few times and they say that *, I have a question. And you say, No.
When you say no to that person, it teaches them to hit the brakes on the questions and reevaluate what you're asking. Is there a sense in what I'm saying? Either this person say no, maybe because the last three questions I asked her so obviously they weren't they didn't weren't a question. to Bob, I waste a lot of time you're asking the same question again and again. So now it's time for me to think. And sometimes someone asks a question you tell them your question was not right, or what you think about your question again, it opens the mind of a person. Go ahead.
The man said I have not prepared for it with many salons vests charity. However, I love Allah and His messenger. His job was so honest to Allah subhanaw taala allow us to be honest with this says an honest answer. Bear in mind that he asked this question in front of group of people in front of a group of people. Imagine how vulnerable he had to be to say, my mother to Allah when Kathy Salatin was so me when I said that I haven't done much salah, some fasting in South Africa, in preparation for the day. I haven't been that many that in front of people. That can't be easy, but he did. And it came with great reward, some sort of loss and then he said, Well, I can income below our solo.
However, I love Allah, His messenger. The truth is that
had he not said that last part in his ear monitor? Good question. That guy's not praying this law, not many fasting, much what's going on here.
But he makes it clear that we're I'm deficient in my actions. And my belief, I'm very strong, and my love and my conviction,
unwavering sort of sort of loss of life, some said, and then
you will be with who you love. So in this viability, Howard sort of lost a lot he was sort of took the question from where from my point of view that they thought was beneficial for them,
and then shifted them to another place that actually had much more benefit for
opening that person's mind and teaching them how to think and how to ask.
Asking for questions that you're needed, so that over time maybe,
sometimes I'm still allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked for the question to be repeated. Is there are the two sort Allahu alayhi wa salam, Al Amin, Assa ne the ephah EPI
is there are the two Huso elements of meanness is there, too, so I mean aside, maybe Salah is from time to question or to repeat his question.
and you are correct, in your judgment, you will be rewarded tenfold. And if you endeavor and you are wrong and your judgment, you will receive one record. So there was sort of a loss of a lot of senses. And you just had the softer falaka Ashot.
That if you engage initially had and you exert yourself and you answer and you're right, Allah will give you 10 remarks, which the head depth of thought I felt like an Agilent wide. But if you exert yourself to answer this person and you get it wrong, you'll still get one reward for trying. By the way, again, this is for people who have knowledge for students of knowledge. Common people should not be doing HD hand, they're not at the McCollum of yours. They're not qualified for it. They should not answer questions. If a matter if the dean is presented to them, they should go to people with knowledge and submitted to them.
being careless in this regard and passing verdicts on the Dean could cause you your Ashra it's not worth it matters of the dunya if you get it wrong, you mess up your plumbing at home, you fix it matters of the extra, they have a bigger implication. So be very careful when speaking in matters of the themes. If you're not qualified, you don't know just say like, I don't know, for that.
itself that admission and that humility is half of knowledge
destined to learn person on a particular issue in order to praise him if he is correct. In Kahana, who sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and I'll be shaking medullary you Babita who with tonight Jana he dasa surah. Also the loss of a loved one it was for them at times, would also
quiz the Companions, not quiz them, so he could trip them or make them fall to humiliate them to make them look bad. That's not what was happening. Maybe some Allahu Allah who has certain but sometimes question the Companions, waiting for them to get it right. So he can then praise them. He adds this last part to show that even when we lost it along, while they were sitting was testing people, he was doing it in the light of positivity.
In our communities, when we test people, unfortunately, it's commonly in the context of humiliating people that do even know the human body. And that guy's like, I don't know. So you say, you dummy.
That's the context, right? You establish your superiority by asking someone a question. That's not lower so low on Nielsen, he would prepare people, educate them, ask them questions, and they would get it right, the prophets of Allah Islam would praise them for it. And if they got it wrong, he would then correct them. It was the practice of the Prophet salallahu Salam. This is interesting, because this whole set of chapters we're reading right now, it teaches us not just how to teach, that we covered over the past few weeks. Today, when we look at the chapters we're studying. We're learning that was sort of loss and Allahu Allah, he was set on educational methodology involved
That's what I did.
It was about empowering the student at MIT, right? Yeah. Tell me what do you think?
But not just any average student again, you don't just give anyone the option to speak. It's people who are qualified people that have worked to them. So the Sahaba they say that after further Salah sort of loss of a long while they will sit them or turn around to the congregation and he would ask, did anyone see any dreams? And it's a prophet of Allah saw clean, he would shared himself many times the Sahaba was shared their dreams and the Prophet of Allah instead of interpreting the dream directly, but he do.
Ask the Sahaba
quotations and sometimes they will get it right. The Prophet said a lot, instead, I'm going to confirm is the correct interpretation. If they got it wrong, a sort of loss of Allah while he was Saddam would make corrections, these divided and authentic narrations. So we see how the officer empowered them.
At times, also loss of a loved one, a person that would test someone just to help, he would question as a hobby regarding a particular issue in order to gauge his intellect and attitude. If he was correct, he would praise them congratulate him and pat him lightly on his chest as an indication that such such a person was deserving of the sort of loss of a lot he was in love and appreciation because of his correct answer.
For this second one,
I would I would typically doubt me inside and called the lovely Mary on the authority of Martha manager, but on the Allahu Anhu set, one was impossible. Nobody was willing to stretch me towards Yemen. He asked, he asked me, How will you have judgment if any cases presented before you? I also noticed sudden loss of load instead of ascending rather than a judgment of the hola Juan after Yemen. But before he sends him off, he begins to question him to make sure the knowledge that he's going with a sound note here are sort of lost and Allahu Allah, he was sort of didn't focus on particulars. He focused on principle. If you look at the question of the sort of loss of a lot Islam
question establishes that this person is foundation sound, he's using the right tools to answer his methodology is correct. So he says gave a totally inaudible like a cabal.
Issue a dispute? A matter that requires judgment is presented to you how will you handle it?
To my other loved ones that I set up Libby Kitab Allah, I will answer using the book of Allah azza wa jal that's where I will look for my answer
for LM tendency kita Biller, but if you don't find the answer in the book of Allah Bucha of the supernatural Sula, who said Allah, I will then pass my verdict based off of the tradition of the Messenger of Allah so Allah writings
I have a lambda deficiency Rasulillah where if you don't find the answer there, so he's an urge to hit the
Messenger of Allah I will use my intellect I will exert myself I will give you I will give the answer and I won't cut any corners like
I won't fail you now.
I'm going to make sure I do my best. So from here we see the US that if the answer is not in the Quran and the Sunnah, you can use sound analogies. Not every single ruling will be in the Quran and Sunnah. This wire is right here regarding wildland
fire for other for LM testing feasibility Rasulullah What if you don't find the answer in the example of the Messenger of Allah to the long run Abelson then one
edge the you Bureau II Well, I will then use my my opinion in my understanding use my intellect to answer and I what I do a lot because I won't fall short. I'm gonna give it my best forgot about Azula he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Saudi Arabia de so in that moment maybe sort Allahu Allah was said I'm most proud of that he in a very proud manner thump his chest with his head. His blessing head Okada and hamdulillah Hola, Neva, rosulip Sula, Lima, Yulia rasool Allah, all praises for Allah who guided the messenger of the Messenger of Allah to that which pleases the Messenger of Allah. And hamdulillah Hula, hula Rasulillah Leyba you're the rasool Allah. Yes.
Teaching by remain silent over what occurs in one's presence. This is what we refer to in the
Hadith terminology and masala Hadith as the Khedira Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Elif Quran of Toledo Nabi dallimore will be suitable if Claudia Allah Muhammad Imam, how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sometimes teach through his silence. Sometimes the teaching would occur through a head, like a knot, sometimes would occur through to smiling. That's a powerful lesson. Sometimes your silence is a big, it's an educated parents know this, that there is a silence treatment.
You guys are familiar with the silent treatment,
where the therapy happens without even saying a word.
The Companions also knew that if there was a religious matter
if there was a religious matter, and it occurred in front of the Prophet of Allah, the use of a long while he was sitting with definitively say something if it was wrong, because he was a prophet, He would not allow wrong to exist or occur in his presence because then someone can say that this is a part of the deen. Therefore, even the use of Allah why there was some silence was an approval of what was occurring in His presence. Yes, I will read through two narrations that I will actually read through a narration the last narration of Chapter
This is one of the categories that was the scholars and your students and the scholars of Hadith referred to this SW.
Tatsunoko approval if any Muslim Senator did something in the presence of a sort of muscle along with some of them, and he did not explicitly explicitly disapprove of it, but he said remain silent or was openly pleased with it, that it was an indication from Missoula muscle Allah, that in particular act of sport or speech was permissible. Many academic matters matters. We're learning from this little muscle a lot of sediment this week, I was advised by quoting only to a hadith in this regard. We're going to read the second
one Aries on the authority of law. So the law said, I had a wet dream on a cold night while we were in the Battle of a set as soon as those of others said as
I feared that if I were to take a bath, a bath, I would die because of the severe cold. So I made the young and let my companions for the photo. So he had a wet dream, as a result of which take a bath. They were traveling was a cold night. The man was worried that if I take a bath using water, the cold temperature will cause death. I won't live it. So what did he do in return? He did to him. Yes, funnily enough, the sell to Alika but they amount to muscle late to be as high as soon so he said I did my demo, and I paid fighters along with my companions. Further Canada Luckily in the visa Allahu Allah He was selling.
So then they
they mentioned this to the prophets of Allah. Hi, everyone. When they came back from Medina, they told the prophet of Allah or maybe while they were traveling, yes, Allah this guy pray to salaam Tamil, Misha Tamil radio, but
they never really did this incident. It was a little bustle. Nobody was. He said, Oh AMA, you let your companions in Somalia when you were in a state of major impurity so late that the US Hobbico and Judah that you let them in Salawa. You were in a state of a major impurity? Yes. So I informed him of what has prevented him
From taking a bat and I said to him I heard a loss of habitat as a mobile I'm not kill yourselves. Allah is certainly merciful for he said that O Messenger of Allah had to take a shower it was so cold if I took it I would have died. Well, to me similar to my niece, America, La Jolla Buddha would not have to do and fast man for succumbing Allahu Rahima. And I also read in the Quran that Allah azza wa jal says, Do not kill yourself, God is merciful.
For Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wollam Your full che and service of Allahu Allah He smiled at him for his sound reasoning and did not say the educational moment was in the silence, where this companion produced a deduction and his deduction was sound it did not require any correction, his deduction was sound. So let me say that law he was allowed it and from here we did use legal legal listen jurist deduce from here that either
that when a matter becomes constricted and difficult, if something is impossible to practice due to circumstances, then the *tier what does it do?
It expands, creates ease from people, making sure that people are accommodated for. Okay, if Allah was we'll stop here. We'll continue in our next class. We're still in love with the Isla
