Are praised due to Allah, Allah, Allah mean for his mercy, that he'll allow all of us to be here today, with one very noble intention to seek allows blessing and pressure
by seeking the knowledge of unlockable alameen
made the blessing and the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon all the prophets, the family, the prophet, the companions of the Prophets, and the followers of the Prophet, especially the seeker of knowledge, student of knowledge as talavera
before I continue my shot, this clearer reminder allowed me to say thanks to the chairman, random does this from Nigeria, the
group leader of IOU Malaysia, about suffering, so free Muhammad, and all the other the other Organising Committee of this gathering today.
Now brothers and sister you have been exposed to a lot of information about I owe you what I like to remind myself and to all the students of knowledge, as fellow Muslim, male and female is that we all are aware that seeking knowledge is an obligation is not just optional upon all Muslim male and female.
And in Islam, there is no end in seeking knowledge.
There's no limit in seeking the knowledge of Allah is not like their worldly knowledge. There is an end of the PhD, one PhD to PhD, I think it's okay. Do they have to further their study anymore, but seeking the knowledge of Islam is from cradle to grave meenal Maddie in the lobby. Now one important factor that every student of knowledge must have. Number one is the first adapt, of seeking knowledge.
The first adapt in seeking knowledge is our intention. Why?
Why do you want to seek knowledge?
Of course as a Muslim, we have committed ourselves from the day we start to perform our prayer in a solid T one Oh, Suki, Mama. Yeah, yeah. Why mama delectable Allah. This is what we say to Allah.
Indeed, all my prayer,
all my sacrifices, to seek knowledge you must prepare to sacrifice. without sacrifice, you cannot gain knowledge, time, money.
Then, our living
what we do in our life, we have time for our body, we have time for our mind the foot of the body is normal food, there is halaal the foot of the mind is the right knowledge.
The foot of the soul is our
prayer towards Allah, our man. So without this tree, you are not considered as a balanced
a balanced woman is a woman who have this tree
combine together body, mind and soul.
They known as BMS all organic shop have designed b m s so that you eat the right food, have the right nutrition. When your body is healthy, you can ping positively and May Allah give you the right spirit inshallah.
Now brothers and sisters after you have the right intention here was no Suki Amaya mama Mati. You make sure that you do not just seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge.
Because we do
been exposed to the waters of Allah, that Allah, Allah Xena, Amano, Lima Taku Luna, ma la de Lune Cabrera makan in the LA and Taku malata.
Allah did ask us and warn us,
you who believe in Allah,
why do you like to say something that you yourself, do not do it?
Now who are the one who like to talk
who are the speaker?
Who are the lecturer or people of knowledge,
people who don't have knowledge, they can talk a lot.
But if you have knowledge for the sake of knowledge, you are good or you are good speaker a lecture but in the same time, you yourself have no intention to implement what you say.
There is a proverb here local, saying, Chaka seperti, begin.
If you are a person who have knowledge but without the intention to implement your knowledge, Allah in return is say cavora maakten in the law.
Allah is saying that he hit
he curls people who have knowledge, but they themselves do not implement the knowledge that Allah has given them. Knowledge is a mana
knowledge and make you a better person.
And that's why Allah did ask us Halle esta we alesina Allah Mona Onegin, Allah Allah moon, is there a difference between the person who learn
a person who have knowledge and a person who do not have knowledge, there should be a very big difference between these two groups of people. Whatever you do, if knowledge you feel different than a person who do something without knowledge, you pray, Allah with knowledge. Understanding is very different from just a person who are worshipping Allah, but they don't feel anything.
You read the Quran, with knowledge and understanding, you are sure to feel differently compared people who just read the Quran with beautiful voices when they do it, but they know nothing.
So this is very important. You must make sure that after you have the right intention, and if you want to know whether your intention is correct or not, everybody see I'm here. For the sake of Allah, everybody can say sincere for the sake of Allah eternally later, this is just lip service words.
But there must be some sign.
If you say I'm sincere in seeking knowledge of a law, then that sincerity will follow up with action.
I'm going to be different because now I have knowledge. So I must behave like
people have knowledge normal like other people who do not attend classes who do not seek knowledge. And this is the most important part in Islam. Today, you have a lot of color when they speak Mashallah. But after that, only Allah knows they themselves do not do.
So, what do you think the student of knowledge can benefit from this kind of people?
All great scholars before, how do they seek knowledge? They had to travel miles up the miles, hundreds of miles to seek knowledge. Today, I owe you is coming to you.
At your own comfort
with your aircon room,
anywhere you are.
Alhamdulillah is a nightmare is a blessing.
But again, like some of the brother was sharing some of the experience, good thing do not come easily, anything come easy, will leave you also very easily.
Everything that you get is so easy, you don't value it anymore.
That's why hobbies in the time of the Prophet, the time the Companion of the Prophet, the tablet is so valuable.
Today, you just men tend to engage, you have hundreds of hobbies, and not even when you memorize
Why? Because you really don't understand how to value the knowledge today. You don't have intention to implement the knowledge. You just listen. Okay, good Alhamdulillah
after that, attend and then the class again. Okay. hamdulillah.
So after you have your diploma or degree, so what are you going to do with the knowledge with the paper? Yeah, you may hang it up.
Show the people that have gone through this. I've gone through that.
You think our question you about your degree your paper in a nail judgment, the paper have no value.
But what is in your heart?
When you understand the knowledge Alhamdulillah I believe that I owe you here to make it easier. Because what you can learn from IOU I believe so because the founder is my colleague, Dr. Bilal Philip, we were together in Medina, we have gone through many good time together, hard time together. Alhamdulillah, he has spent a lot of his time trying to come up with a system here. So that whatever knowledge they have given him, he can share it with the oma Alhamdulillah Allah make it easy for him.
But one important thing, that way we were learning before, we had been blessed because we have the machine with us.
We don't have all this internet yet, no Wi Fi was at noodlehead that we are all
very manual people.
that is the best way of seeking knowledge.
You move with the machine.
Learn from them.
Listen to what they say.
So that whatever they say will penetrate to your heart
thing that you don't understand, you have the right to ask them on the spot. And they make it crystal clear to you. And now you have understood the message very clear. And the next thing they adapt to monitor and supervise that you are acting upon the knowledge.
Like how the Prophet and the companions of the Prophet educate themselves,
not only giving them knowledge, there is tarbiyah but tarbiyah Rabbani, they are there to monitor to supervise to make sure that you implement the knowledge that you have learned.
This is a next level.
But lending through internet is one of the way that 10 knowledge, the foundation. But of course, in the future, you move to the next level, get close to the scholars.
Spend time with the scholars, you have the lucky system, you have the halaqa where you can see the scholar and you can see what they do. Now that's why in the Hadith of the Prophet, you will come across three type of
a companion we'll say, color Rasulullah
another companion was it raw? I do. Rasulullah another companion was a summit Torah Sumo. Why the difference in the beginning? Why color? Why summit two wire walk right?
means the time that the companion is not dead with the Prophet, but other companion was with the Prophet. And they convey the saying of the prophet to this companion. So this companion cannot say I heard from the Prophet because he was not there.
He said that somebody conveyed to me is that the Prophet said, so so so that's why you just call that a pseudo
But if, like the hadith of enamel and Malou, beneath the first hadith of Sahih Bukhari
Omar in the hot tub ameerul momineen, say, summit, Torah Sula, la sala yaku. in Albania, I heard the prophets say,
this is to tell us that when the Prophet was quoting this saying
Omar was there,
he was there listening
to the Prophet same, that's why he says, submit to
not a third party, he was present, like today you are here, whatever is it, you can say, I hucha Hussein easy. But if you're not, then you ally,
you're not telling the truth, you're not sincere, you have no other.
Then the Sahaba was it again, or I tourist mode, meaning the Prophet knows anything.
He was taking his ablution
just action, and some companion was looking at his movement. And then they follows him.
And then when they explained to other companion, he said, I saw the profit, make his wood in this way. And that's why I'm doing it.
So the Sahaba learn from the profit from three methods
from his action
from his saying, and also from someone else who convey the message to them. This is just an example.
Today, we don't have a lot of scholars who are close to you,
even they are, but you are not close to them.
There is also another problem.
So today, I always talk to my other students, the well is searching for the pail.
It should be the bill moving towards the well. Now this collar is coming to the student of knowledge.
And a student of knowledge still do not tell you the sacrifice of this color.
There is one of the biggest issue we are facing, we do not know how to value the knowledge that is being shed to you.
Now before I continue, again, I like to bring all of you back to knowledge I owe you is about knowledge, knowledge is an obligation. But again, brother and sister, if I say go to the bookshop, go and buy any books and read, can you attain knowledge from the book? What do you say?
Can you? Yes, of course you cannot say no.
Yes, you can get some information from the book. But you must remember there are so many books.
The book is correct. If the book is authentic, the book is okay.
But the problem is when you read the book, you're understanding to what the knowledge in the book may not be correct.
It's not that the book is not correct. The Hadith is authentic, but your way of understanding that particular Hadith is not correct.
And that's why you need
This is why we have
student of knowledge and teachers
by IOU they have a team of scholars who is there to try to coach you.
If you don't understand. Don't ever feel shy to us.
Because it is the command from Allah. Allah Allah asically in quantum law tala one thing that you do not know. Be humble. Be sincere to yourself and us.
Even as in the teacher, you must have a DA
even when you want to ask the teacher about something you must have adapt. This is what lacking among the students of knowledge today.
They learn the bit.
Now, they don't have to ask anymore.
They thought that they understand everything so they become a big shift.
So that we all become more fino.
can give a talk
that is also very dangerous
but inshallah with the right knowledge. Now, when you talk about knowledge I believe I owe you do not just give you knowledge.
You know when I talk about knowledge brother says there are two types of knowledge
and the proper even ask us as to the nature of knowledge when you seek knowledge as a law say to Allah Allahumma, designee illman. Now, what are becoming an ally?
I don't know.
Either I mean or any other student of knowledge today, recite these are before they seek knowledge I do not know.
But we were taught before to ask Allah for guidance or a law, increase in me knowledge that benefit me
not just any knowledge
and I seek refuge in You alone, from seeking knowledge that do not benefit me.
If that knowledge make you arrogant, you know that is not a good knowledge.
If the knowledge make you become judgmental, that is not a good knowledge.
True Knowledge will make you more humble.
down to a more simple, you become more simple person, easy to approach.
You're not judgmental, because you're not here to judge anybody.
Nobody is perfect. knowledge will tell you Nobody is perfect except Allah.
Now, I also believe why we want to encourage a lot of goods student of knowledge to go into IO program. Because the knowledge that was provided in IOU is pure knowledge.
Not just earned knowledge, but a PR knowledge.
We must understand the concept of knowledge today. You can go to any kind of institution of higher learning. You say, I'm seeking knowledge, I'm seeking knowledge, you read any book, I'm reading about something to get knowledge.
pure knowledge that align the Prophet, one as the sick is the knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Salah masala.
This is pure knowledge,
knowledge that will show to lead you to the straight path from this life to the next
knowledge that we have been asking Allah Idina serratos takim in dunya, la hora, Sara Misaki.
And this beyond knowledge will never change. From the time it was revealed until today,
the word of Allah or never change?
My saying, You're saying, what the majority say, what scholars say
What a loss it is pure knowledge is true, nothing but the truth. What the Prophet said is pure knowledge because he was guided by Allah not like all of us. We are guided by our desire. That's why Allah say when my indico Anil Hauer in war in the war, you
Muhammad Salah Laos, I will never say anything
to his desire. How
in Who in the world knew her except what was revealed to him?
We have a lot of desire, I feel I think, my opinion, peel Wukong that's why we were confused.
The prophecy follow Quran and Sunnah we want to follow so many books. So you have one group of Muslim just hold on to books, Quran and Sunnah. Yet another group of Muslim he followed 10 books.
So which one do you want to follow now?
At the end of the day, you can read any books, no problem.
the reference only to Khurana
Some other just reading book grip, get some opinion from here opinion from their ideas, no problem.
your final reference is the Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad some Bahasa.
And this is very important.
Brothers and sisters, and the student of knowledge is really a blessing to see all of you today. Now when you look into knowledge again, you know what Allah says in the Quran?
wamena NASS, Maya Kula Ravana, Tina, Petunia, Omar, la Whoville, our hero Dominica la
a group of people who only want success in this life. So they spend their time to seek the knowledge of the world.
The knowledge of dunya
they become engineers, psychology scientists, Doctor,
just name it very successful person in this life. Because there's what they want. They ask Allah for them. And Allah gave it to them from Allah who will errata mean Allah. Nothing for them in the day of judgment in the hereafter zero.
Because that's what they want.
Why minimum now Allah is telling us about the second group.
My yaku Ravana Tina, Tanya Hashanah.
We are here at the Hashanah joaquina.
The second group are those who are very wise.
They say Oh Allah, give us success, happiness in this life
in this world,
where we are leaving here for temporarily 80 years, 90 years, maybe give you 100 if you'd like to live longer.
I think after that we'd want to live and do more than 100 we don't burden ourselves not to burden other people.
And then we also ask Allah give us success and happiness in the next life.
And save us from hell fire from all the problem the fitna in this life and the here after.
This is the best among the balance.
You want to seek the knowledge of the world because you want to be happy and success in this life.
That also you must have knowledge.
Islam never said that. Just look for the knowledge of Akira and forget the world now.
There is a saying not on the base on the authentic Heidi's just saying from some scholars, man era dunya Allah Hadith al Madani, whoever won success in this life, he must have the knowledge of this world.
Woman around the arciero la back in one whoever wants success in the next slide, they must have the knowledge of the next
one man arada Houma la de la and whoever won both to be successful you must have the both knowledge
so that's why you are here.
I don't have to teach all of you are doing it you know better
you know where to eat, what to drink, what the dress what to buy, you know better maybe you have go shopping more than us.
But when come to our Hara,
you must be selective.
You must know who to seek the right knowledge. You must know what kind of book that you want to pick up in the bookstore. Not only look at the power so beautiful, you must know the author who wrote this book.
If this book is written by people who don't follow the Quran and Sunnah, then you know you will not be guided to the Quran and Sunnah.
So it is very important to have that basic knowledge so that you will be guided in Sharla.
Brothers and sisters
we all are aware that is you go back to the Islamic history. Muslim have contributed a lot in science, maths and culture.
But what happened to the Muslim today
because we ourselves
fitnah two hours.
We forget the balance of
But it's also important nothing is too late.
We know that technology is developing and is ongoing. Every time technology is going to change.
I always say whatever I T that you use today, or 10 years to come,
please don't forget to be guided by the first IoT
IoT today must be guided by the IoT before
Do you have it in the time of the Prophet?
Do we have it? sisters Can you share with me? Do you have it in a time and the Prophet What do you say?
What do you say sister?
The brother seems to know but I want the other sister
the brother Don't know ask the brother
but the brain seems to know so I don't ask them yes
oh that's the most important thing
why and how the generation has kind of become so successful what it do they have
from a pagan society they turn out to be a civilized society
nation of adapt of value it because of the first it
Eman and that is the most important ID
it today we know what is happening to all of us it really corrupt us
waste a lot of time destroyed the family ties husband and wife Do not talk with each other animals because of it
Can you imagine children don't talk to the parent it
they have their PlayStation now they want to play with you anymore
to imagine what is happening everyone or when you go to the office you go to any area where the police are busy with your phone
How can you be alert about the bad guy or the bad guy? You're very alert you IP
oh this is a killer
is really a killer last time inshallah you can sleep so well. 10 8pm 11pm Alhamdulillah
and now there is a time that it is working very actively.
After one program another program come look at your phone only you know what is happening to us.
Just a small thing a control our whole life today.
One of the one you have so much, right? I don't even remember all this program, even using my headphones.
Because we don't have time to entertain all this. But all of us spend a lot of time to do all these things. This It is very very destructive.
Of course we know that Islam does not oppose modern invention
that can benefit the ummah. Yeah, you can use it like that's why I argue is also use another
approach to it to reach out to the public. Those who can travel that path knowledge is coming to you.
But we need to sacrifice a bit.
We know that the information I got there, the IOU student, you have more than 1000 Plus,
just in Klang Valley, you may have 600 plus of them. So when we organized this awareness gathering,
when you can see how many denza
why maybe because they don't come they are following it again.
They say okay, normal is online.
So I don't have to attend any classes and engaging. I'll just stay home and open and I can follow the lecture now. Now, whether you follow or not I do not know
whether you are listening carefully or not. I also did my you may see as I was holding your lecture just now.
Maybe you own for five minutes after that you do other things.
might use it Yeah, I've been following. You're lying to yourself.
And do you think you can understand just by listening without asking me
and without being around here, because you must know when you around the people of knowledge, their special blessing.
The prophets, Allah Salam said the angel was spread out the wing and ask Allah for special blessing for seeker of knowledge.
So easy at home, you don't have that blessing anymore.
Not the angel will open the wing, the Satan will open his wing
and give you the wrong idea. And you make your own judgment and conclusion.
Oh, the share sheet that is my understanding is like that.
You will make comments about the shares who are saying
there is good, good for the Satan.
This is very dangerous. This is very important for us to understand brothers and sisters
did as follows some of the experiences shaped by the student of knowledge. When I was inside the house, there's a speaker there.
So I was listening all the way and hamdulillah.
Now brothers and sisters,
we know what is happening to the world today.
So the foremost important thing, we must always be careful to know which website to go if you want to go to the website.
Now you can even get University qualification from learning from the internet. You see things have been so convenient today. They are online universities such as IOU Alhamdulillah, that offer diploma and bachelor degree just by learning online and seeking knowledge from your living room. A lot of work but no disturbin
don't have to talk to anybody. Just open everything on the switch and then you're on Alhamdulillah. But again, brothers and sisters, we don't really know how much you have learned.
And we do not know the level of your understanding that need to have follow up to get close to the scholars who are there to monitor you is driven you learning how to pray. And then you pray the who is there to look at you and observe your movement to check whether your praying is correct or not. Whether your movement is correct or not, whether you had to mark Nina, we do not know because we are not there.
But when you are, you're in an environment where this color is like the time of the Prophet when the Prophet was talking to his companion after he finished his prayer and let karma just walk in. And he gives Salam the proper response. And then he just went to a comma and performed his prayer.
But while the Prophet was talking to his other companions, he was also looking at the movement of that companion. And after he finished his prayer, he came to the Prophet the prophesy go and pray again.
So he read
follows of the Prophet the first generation of very faithful and loyal when the prophecy prayed up again not the spy Why must I pray? I just finished my praying what was wrong with my prayer? How you know the Act No.
No, we may argue, but these competitors when and perform another
the same prayer he repeats
and then the after he finished he came to the property the prophecy go and pray again.
And he never argue until the third time
now here's a bit confused, something is wrong with my prayer.
Then the Prophet
stand up and show him
what went wrong is he do not have to mark Nina
they mean every movement from one station to another station, you must really take a break stop
not like a spring you know like going for Arabic You can read you can learn Arabic no problem. Yeah, but aerobic is different.
He keeps on jumping, jumping, jumping, jumping, non stop.
But you can go for another cut, stretching.
Stop for a while
and then move to another movement. Stretch your one stop there is a better one.
But what can we do sometime this morning also after my class brother came to me. What do eating an apple
They imagine each time even I recite so fast, but the man is faster than me.
Maybe he was 4g, and we trade 3g
here faster internet, no. Four is here is always
to the extent that I only can make my Roco after he raised up from row
because he was so fast
and say then the two thing that you must do
the Imam also have problems sometimes.
Sometimes mom also have their own problem. They take their sweet time to resize slowly cannot sometimes adjust too fast.
I have seen some images I've seen in the YouTube or something 23 record less than 15 minutes
23 record brother and sister less than 10 minutes How do you perform that prayer?
I really can't imagine but it is happening.
People who follow the man was so happy to
kung fu masters Oh cannot follow that.
I think you put an animal there and the animal will pay
a penny everything clear.
This is not praying this praying.
But what can you do? They say oh, we are praying sooner. So no problem.
And we know brother and sister learning today can be done so easy anytime, anywhere. And in any size of the classroom is no issue.
before our time, no, we are very jealous. When our share have a lot of students, we don't want to ask when nobody is with them. Then we start to get closer. We walk with Him, hold his bag, carry his book. And then while walking we talk to him we talk
Yeah, sometimes you feel jealous, seeking knowledge. So there's some jealousy. But the right jealousy is okay.
You just jealous because you see other people is so learned. And you're so backward, you want to learn faster.
By getting close to the scholars, you know how we learned before.
When I arrived in Saudi in Medina in 72.
You know that that university?
May Allah shower his blessing to the chef of Ghazi bin bass, who was the director at that time.
student was in the same class. They are like as young as me, in the team, and they are grandfather,
who was in the same class, no age limit.
They say this is the institution of higher learning
is open for everyone who have the interest to seek knowledge, no age limit.
Today, you cannot get that kind of spirit.
And the teacher Allah Hawk was very committed and isbt faculties, you have kids,
you have your own gate and security. One Zoho come in, some student will just come out for one of the classroom and call us
and everyone will come and perform Zoho pay and
into the classroom again and continue for the last class.
No one is allowed to leave that area without praying zone from the worker, the caretaker, the cleaner lecturer, the student everybody must participate in the prayer that is in Medina.
In other area where as uncommon is up to them, whether they want to pray or not now, and somebody may be on the way out. Some lecture lecture also don't participate in the Jamaat prayer but not in our time in Medina
and very we are resting in our room in the hostel as far as on his own in the in the mosque in the campus.
Before as an 1015 minutes you have katika will come to each room to wake up all the students sola sola sola
if they caught you
not praying Juma for three times, they will prepare your ticket and say, you're welcome to go home.
We don't want to waste your time, we don't waste our time. And we don't waste money invest in you. Because you are given a free scholarship, you're here to learn the dean, not just the dean, you must act upon the knowledge that you have.
If you don't practice, you better go home.
There is no room for any student of knowledge, who don't have the intention to act upon his knowledge.
Do you still have that kind of monitoring today?
Or do you feel so free is up to me? At that point, no, no, it is part of the requirement of all students and lecturer and whoever worked in the area, the gate will be closed from one penalty to another pocket.
So you don't give excuses
Where can you get that kind of tarbiyah
just an example, to show you the different spirits when people seek the right knowledge with the right spirit.
So what is happening today brother and sister by learning through the internet, online, do I owe you example
no physical burden is going to take place on you. So long as you are disciplined.
allocate the time to study and have internet access.
Now I owe you advantage is the man hash. That's why I say because what is introduced to you in IOU the right man has the right aqeedah
and the right device
for reading the Quran and the Sunnah of the prophets.
And this is the most important thing in seeking knowledge.
Without these two is a waste of time.
Because you know where where are you heading you there? You have no idea. The Prophet has remind us to pick them up. amaran lanta de la v Mata mK satomi Omron bhaineann tabula rasa
there are only two things that are left behind.
And if you hold past to this too,
you will never turn straight.
clear explanation and destruction I'm run by
nothing in the gray area everything is clear.
The Quran is straightforward. And authentic hadith is straightforward.
And whoever hold on this thought no one continue astray.
But today the Muslim is so divided.
We are our say don't be divided. But we see be the way there is a good Rama.
that Hades, Aquila Amati. Here Rama is not through.
Is la isla la who is just as saying
and again I believe all of you are aware that I owe you was founded by Dr. Bilal Philips. We know who he is he has been with us
and what they also produce the cost also range from psychology to Business Administration to Islamic Studies offering diploma and bachelors in science.
So you can he says to IOU all you're
talking about price is affordable and humbling. So there's no excuse that oh I cannot know is too costly and got to go to London I got to go to the US to study now you can stay at home.
A composer no problem in your flat also you can there are no tuition fees for the student. If I'm not wrong is any additional fees for the student
making it accessible for anybody anywhere to gain higher education. But again brother and sister before I open for my last q&a.
We hope that insha Allah, we all will try our level best to benefit from IOU as much as you can
This information with your loved one, guide them back to the teaching of Islam based on the Quran and Sunnah.
And if you have
more time, we have classes here every Saturday, every Sunday, very practical classes, teaching you how to engage with the not yet Muslim, and how to help the new brother and sister in Islam. This is another knowledge, this is a knowledge about the art of communication.
You must have the art of communication, how to talk to people who are not yet Muslim.
Especially when people want to be a Muslim in our center here.
We do not just accept them.
We want them to come with their family members, their father, their mother, their Auntie the uncle,
the brothers that said we want if everybody can come in make us more happy. Why? Because we want to explain to the whole family what is Islam.
They don't have to hide.
It's time for them to be very open to their family members.
Then they will gain the respect from the family. If you do think behind your parent, your parent will not respect you. They feel more hurt. Because in our country here, brother and sister I do not know about Africa or Europe.
But what I know is Asian, the Asian are very family oriented.
Everything family, family, and that's why when they go for food, also family and then the boss will pay the bill.
In Europe, they can have family for dinner outside. But when the bill comes everybody paid their own bill.
They're very self conscious. My if I pay you eat up
husband, the husband Bill, why pay wise bill? So, so easy. So don't say that I have eaten something from you. No, no, no, no. I'm a free woman. You are a free man. You can do anything but in our culture is different. Everything. If I invite you for dinner is
is a humilation if you go and pay.
But the Chinese have a better spirit.
While you're eating, eating it with the Chinese sudden that guy will disappear for a while. You see our going to Thailand
and he goes to cash empirically.
Suddenly, when you want to pay his speaker, pay,
somebody have paid
because they say don't be stingy.
With our value is different. So whenever you want to learn something that is good, you can but if you want to learn more, we have more than we have classes every Saturday at 11am kills the whole time and every Sunday like today from Zoho, up from 11 to Zoho time to this extra knowledge that you can benefit and this is
reality is not just what is in the book is reality that we are exposed to our daily life. Brothers and sisters again like what
brother Sophie was quoting that the best among you are those who learn the Quran and teach others I will share with you one saying of the Prophet also the Prophet said from him
while I'm Malou be wala de colo
the prophecy grid
after reading the Quran, you must act upon the
make use of the Quran to make money.
Don't sell the Quran
by yoga by the Quran
and you buy to sell no problem that is okay.
But don't make a business
because Allah will reward you more than what you can get.
Can you imagine the prophesy Bollywood and nivola I convey for me even one is
this one I
can share with other people
People give it and they benefit from it.
The reward is amazing is from a model bellami. Nicola has an ashram study and allows it. Every good piece that you engage in purely for the sake of Allah, I reward you 10 times more to 700 times who can give you that kind of reward.
But we have problem crisis of IP.
The crisis of a man and taqwa we don't seem to believe
that we will be rewarded in the best form because we don't see the reward now.
If you can see the reward, he will come to seek a knowledge you will reward 10 times 10 bring it each time you come for class handling it
and if you spend more than an hour,
then you get 100 ringgit within your comfort the class.
If you know praying Juma is $27. In the MOS Do you think you go and pray every Juma prayer each time you go they give you 27 bring it out.
After that you go get we give you 27 do you think you will go
I think we all will go.
We don't have to work anymore.
Our duty is to pray and pray and pray. So one day you pray five times a day 510 10 510 27
how much you get
who don't want to go and get 100 plus 100 ringgit per day?
Just by going to the mosque and pray whether you pray properly or not, you get 27.
So May Allah guide us May Allah bless his brothers and sisters, and we hope Allah subhanho wa Taala will help those who help themselves in seeking the right knowledge. And there's no excuses from all of us today to say, I have no time.
I don't have the money to travel to Alhaji in Santa Ana, the IOU is coming to you.
So what are you going to say? Oh, I have no internet. Yeah, you ask a lot. That you gotta talk to Allah. When anything to do for Allah, you give so many excuses. When something you want to do for yourself, you'll find way you make an effort to do what you want to do. Just to entertain your desire, brother and sister.
Is there any q&a? You open for the next section? Q and A session ponder.
Any question from the floor.
In my class, I always offer the q&a number one to the ladies. Because they say ladies first for that system
can find a mic, we have a mic so that I can hear you properly.
But the sound icomos does, I would just like if you could just take a minute or so from IOU if they can take a minute just to make it clear for sisters. How easy it is for the sisters because I heard how you can do it. You can study while you're a student I can but some you know from others, sometimes it's really hard for us to study online. So if your wife, your mother, you have kids you work suddenly it becomes and I understand about making the schedule. But women will look at studying online a lot differently than men will especially when it comes to doing our balance of our schedule. So I think it's important for the ladies to understand really how easy it could be for
them to study online so maybe brother Sophie could could enlighten a little bit more how how the sisters could actually manage their time because I mean, brothers say it and yeah, yeah, that's easy for you. That's easy for us is sometimes the first thing that that a sister would think. No.
And try later I will pass it to Brother so free to share with all of you you know, we know that among the sister and a brother especially mothers
who have children to look after. So the char would be greater I will say that we cannot deny the truth that the sacrifice from the mother is always greater than the Father. And so, but anyhow, pride is so free. We'll share with y'all later on inshallah, if you're under question that. Anybody want to ask me, Nam Sr poziom
walaikum salam rahmatullah wa barakato.
I would like to, for you to explain to me and the rest of the group, exactly what is the public?
What is public?
is came from the word luck
means a group of people who will focusing on how to convey the message Islam.
But the real public with the prophecy believer and voila, Isaiah, the prophet is telling his mama to reach out to the not yet Muslim.
But when you are talking to Muslim, normally you don't use the word public. You don't use the word Tao. You use other terms, there is naseeha is law.
was occupied in zakra pantah Alma meaning remind each other
You are Muslim already only you have not been practicing so somebody must remind you. It's not that you're totally not yet Muslim. You don't know anything about Islam. You are mostly you are in now. So you don't have to invite them. You don't have to call them in the interview. You just have to remind them or a slot in Domino's hopper asleep oh by the way comm all the labels are like a family you have to rectify you rectify each other is law. All naseeha
means you give advice.
When the world the real world of tablet is the reach out to a not yet Muslim to that bring them to Islam, double A and na. But now today you have group called Assam that Wi Fi means they will train actually to reach out to fellow Muslims to invite them back to the masjid.
Yeah, I was with the public for four years. When
the melee not even 10 of them join them. In the late 60s, I was with them.
But now the group have grown so big Alhamdulillah
but it's important for them to be more hawkish.
So it's got nothing at all to do with darica No, no, no, some people may say this is another way
that means we
but normally the group is a very mixed group.
They are not so
focused in Kedah
a lot of the ibadah they obviously love to use we had this for for the AMA
but they have a lot of good people inside. Yes, we've been
by but they are not so careful about Nikita to make sure that they have the right aqeedah so you have people who still commit sherek and everything is together. So May Allah help those who are sincere in doing something for the sake of Allah insha Allah.
And the last question from the brothers. Now.
My name is Saad walaikum salam ala Barbara. Welcome, brother. Now, you say darlin,
and I heard that Omarosa said the same statement, the aluminum man format aluminum foil on first we learned a man and then we learn Quran. So everywhere the Quran is being taught, but a man is not being taught. and the value of human which I heard from olema is that if you have one grain of demand, that will get you agenda that will be 10 times bigger than this universe. So there is a value of one green of human So my point is that talent among various darlin lemon, what do you will say about talana lemon?
is a very important question. We know that the profit and loss on this c'est la coluna agenda to me No.
There is no hadiza c'est la de la luna Jana Hata that Allah Allah Quran, no
Prophet is saying no one can enter Paradise without email. Email is a very valuable things
But again, how can you have the right in mind without going through the
like what Allah says in Surah Al Baqarah.
Allah is telling in our in our manual, Miss Lima, man to be here.
Allah is telling us if you believe if your Eman is like the man of the early people,
the Prophet and the companions, then you can say you have a sound man, you have the right
so today we have issues. We may read the Quran by right the Quran will guide you to the right man. But because you read the Quran without understanding
and then you don't relate the Quran with Eman
And that's why you'll find that Oh, crud has nothing to do with it might
give you an example.
The first few I have sort of Baccarat
Alif Lam me Zadie cul de la Riva fee coup de Lima Taki alesina manana Bella hypo ki Muna sala de mi Mirage
la cara I, what is this ayah talking about?
How to have the right Eman. First, you must believe in the book of Allah.
That everything that Allah said is true. You must have that man.
You cannot have doubts anymore. If Allah say haram haram Holla Holla. haka, Mata mata
without that, you do not know what is the man
in mind it's not just how you feel.
Basically a man with Amanda Wallach in Morocco, Colombia, Colombia, Masada Kabila San Juan amahi jawara he man is that how you just feel
but a man is something that come from the heart and then you will speak like a believer and you think like a believer and you equity a believer
and show you another last example of this. Talk about a man taller than arabo man.
column two min Wallach in kulu Aslam well Amaya, a man fee into de la hora pseudo lady Malika Misha Illa.
In a time of the Prophet you have a group of Arabs, not you and me. Arabs,
the Bedouin, I mean, these are pure Arabs
came to the prophet and say Yara so law we believe in Allah. We have Eman
could call it an Arab man. We have believed in Allah.
How can the Prophet say that you have no human?
He can make the command because a man is in your heart. No one knows.
But Allah revealed this ayah Calum to me. No. Oh, Mohammed. Salah Wallace, I'm sick to this group of Arab. You are not yet a believer
or lacking kulu Aslam
is good for you to be humble and said I am a Muslim.
There's a difference between Islam and Eman
balama yet call a man. fee kulu become a man enter your heart. The man is not the scorpion.
The man is not the
man is not here.
Allah is saying the man is from the heart.
a man have entered your heart, what is the sign that the man has entered your heart? Allah say into the law How are us
then the reaction that will come from you is you are ready to obey Allah and the prophets comment
each time and Allah says something and the Prophet says something you were just answered submit now what we hear and we obey finish.
Today we are here but Okay, let me take it over.
I'm not ready yet.
I think our understand my situation
will be so many excuses.
You're talking about human I'm a human okay.
the prophet also give us guidance. Show us some signs. Whether you have a sound a man or not yet you can know when you have the right knowledge
inside a Muslim the prophecy, man habla de la
bajada de la, la, la La, la mahna mahna and the left pocket this Malema.
The proper is saying that whoever left what Allah left hates what Allah hits, give for the sake of Allah with hold for the sake of Allah. Indeed, he has a sound Amen.
But if you don't have this quality, then you know your mind
is not that strong yet. Some images they need some repair work. You know, it's like the handphone sometimes stubborn, you talk to time ready so it's not that good You must send for
for the repair shop now.
When you have other problems, you can go for a repair when you're in might have problem you don't repair your in mind because the mo k
e monastero k
May Allah protect us by that what you say is very true. But again, it must be guided by the crime. The only thing that we are facing people read the Quran without understanding
they cannot relate with your Eman.
So May Allah guide us May Allah bless his brothers sisters, you still have one more. Two more one two, okay. Yes.
The virtues that are in the finale Amal are these they have narrated ours as if one the week one. So I want to ask that if I tell someone that this is a chocolate, this chocolate is very sweet. It is sweeter than honey. It is not sweeter than honey, but it is sweet. I'm just I just want to give him that chocolate. So if I narrate such a deal, that is if he won, but it is it is defying the agenda. And it is it is beautifying The, the personality if you follow the Sunnah, if even if it is if so, what problem that it has mosyle okay if mosyle it is i that is dangerous, but he prefers I'm telling the Jenna the the woman of Jun nada, eisele Allah says, Well, hold on, I'm comfortable mcnown if I,
I have my own imagination, that I would be big, and it will the wide will be so wide, the black will be so black. So I explained this in my own way, in my own imagination, attract people towards gender. Okay, so this is all sorry. So is there anything wrong with this? I just want to say yes, Alhamdulillah. Anything with dunya you can
give your own expression, anything between you and Allah mobio Mauritania from the Prophet say, it's up to you how you want to present a beautified a dunya known as you're right. But anything to do with a BIA.
You don't even have seen that experience.
Even a line of Prophet have informed us what is paradise in Paradise, no eyes have seen
and the sound no ear has heard.
So how can you try to imagine you can just say what the prophet said is authentic. Don't go further. Why because you are trying to create something that do not exist.
Now had this dive have to kind of thing that you must understand. If the Martin is die,
then it's dangerous to share
this because that means the content we are not sure whether it's from the prophet or from someone else, but if the sun there is some people who have died, then you will see whether it contradicts the authentic hadith or not, when it did not contradict then you can still proceed with
summer is different and Matan is different. When the Martin a contradict even the Santa is correct, you cannot accept an M Something is wrong somewhere.
So of course there is another area for us to learn. But in general anything to do with unseen you cannot go further than what like when the Prophet was asked about a role. Yes aluna and
Rule What did the Prophet say?
If he wants to create his own image he can if you want
he had no answer. until Allah revealed this ayah Kali Rossmann amor europei mama ot terminal illa kalila
when the Prophet give them the answer days just believe them what the prophet said is so true. They just want to test the Prophet
so sometimes even we have good intention to express to feel to make but when you don't have anything authentic don't go further than that. You'll be taught
by some people and they say is he telling the truth
none of us have been there yet. We just believe what the prophecy one Allah say. Orion okay Alhamdulillah if you see the ISO bloodmeal courses are so big and so big, so big No problem, but if none, you don't imagine how big how big how many meters
you cannot go in that direction anymore. The deeper you go, you're like chocolate Okay, you can say no problem because chocolate is dunya
even is so sweet. But it's not sweeter than honey but maybe because other honey that is not so sweet. So it is something very very open for discussion sokola brothers plus one
grow Salah Morocco pass the mic to the brother here.
Music and watching movies visible in Islam music and watching movies. Is this permissible? What it means is that
some sisters say now
how about the brothers
okay sometimes documentary movie you know but in general
we are not going to say that you should cut off from the dunya
if you think that it can benefit you
then you can wash it but if you think that it's not with a benefit you waste your time then you don't want to waste your time because time is a mother
most of the movie today
will show you that the Muslim a bad guy
know how good they are they're still bad
anything bad actor always reassemble an error. Do some beer
the good one is always the other party.
So if you keep on watching this movie, it really hurt you a lot
and sometimes there's a lot of the job in the movie Chris
what is right become wrong what is wrong become right?
Talking about music we know that music had in your heart
radios were addicted to it
then it's not going to help you become a person who are closer to Allah. I love music when I was very young
when they're not young still love music
but different kind of music not the hot rock music I don't like I hate that
as it is a crazy shopping shopping and then we don't even know what they're talking about. Last time all the songs or sentiment
but still anything to do with thing that can make you forget a lot is good to stay away.
Now I don't go for that anymore. It's better because we have so many things to think
that the waste of time listen to music
listen to the
listen to the advice from great scholar is always
So I know we all love music.
What the movie
Gods of Egypt.
Yeah, I mean
when when we don't understand the values. We are not careful with what we are dealing with.
Everything is open open.
The door has been open. The door is open so they let you choose. Hi Dana when
I show you today, you're gonna go to hell Yella.
Go to paradise you have to decide this, everywhere we go today is a very confused environment. So, at the end of the day, we have to be responsible to our team. This is our future, our life, whatever people want to do, we cannot control but we can control ourselves at least. So whoever does anything, let them say we're gonna do anything, let them do, but you just try to do what Allah like us to do. And stay we have won a lot for Peters and yamaga is all insha Allah. Once again, Brandon says Thanks for your patience, that you are here today to spend more than an hour with me. And maybe you are tired to listen. I'm not tired to be talking to you. And you know, speakers like that when
they start the talk. They do not know how to stop
until Allah say stop. So May Allah blesses. And like I said, again, we have activities that you want to participate. You're welcome. And for those who have been joining online, use the the IOU, please continue. And try to be focused if possible. And for those who really give a lot of excuses, still tell them share with them this good information so that they can learn so even without you're traveling to other areas from home, so that may Allah make them a better Muslim to the right knowledge insha Allah Subhana Allah Mohammed shadow Allah in Atlanta Furukawa Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
