I'm waiting for the green light
don't want to come on I'm gonna tell you but my brothers and sisters, it is our duty for us to spread the message of Islam by verse to professional students. We'd like to offer you the opportunity to fulfill this obligation together. Said I'm already a cool mom with a lot hate
to dry you guys like preparing for exams so I'm
always busy right?
how's your time going on?
Can you smell Silla? Okay, for coming for today's event. I am quite excited for what's coming up with both our speakers, Sheikh Ibrahim and Dr. Bilal. But while we wait for the Messiah,
I want to take a different approach to this event because this is our first mini conference. You always have these small pocket events that we do for you for every semester and right right. And this was like the bonus one right, the fifth one now hamdulillah the bonus turned out to be a mini conference hopefully the next one turns out full fledge conference.
I think Omar shoulda prepare for it. Yeah. So this may Allah. So I want to take a different journey towards this particular event, you know, we Reviver is have been around for about six years. But the reality is that it's not really six years, right? People tend to ask us a lot. What's the meaning behind the name the virus, or the fist? Or the flame? Right? There's a lot going on on our logo. And there's been this question why why are these right? The first maybe make sense? You know, like, Y'all young people here, all of us inshallah Bismillah. Because at the end of the day, you know, in the afterlife, we all will be love young business, right?
So, I want to take us down. A story is a story about all of us sitting here, right? Every single one of you is occupied the seat here, and everyone out there. It's a story about all of us. And it's a story about mankind, putting their first steps on on this planet. And that's where Allah azza wa jal said, Adam Alayhis Salam, and our mother, however, they said, I'm on Earth first, right. And at that time, something was unique, which is not there in our times today, which is there was no shirt whatsoever on Earth, with just two people. We're sure it will be there. Right. But hamdulillah there was no hate. And that was the essence. That's what they came with. Right? It may have been a
punishment from Allah azza wa jal, that other medicine was sent to Earth, right to approach the forbidden fruit.
But then, at the end of the day, it was Allah's plan that we will be on this planet. And we started with the hate.
And subhanAllah as time went by,
though, he'd still remain although Chapin has had had his plans, right. Shaitaan wants you to deviate us from our right. But first he started with the Shabbat, Shabbat, you know, since started increasing murder happened first, right? And then other types of sins started increasing and so on. And then came the Shabbat, where he started putting these doubts in people where they should maybe, you know, make statues of people that they want to remember with and so on. And subhanAllah Chick fil A started on Earth, which is the worst thing that ever had to happen, right? And that's where the first Reviver of that heat was sent by Allah azza wa jal to us who was that? Was that was
No, I they said, right. And subhanAllah from that time, nor are they Salah lit the fire of the head. Right, that fire of the head was lit and was passed down generations after generations from one prophet to the other prophet, right from new RSM to Idrees to you know who that is. And to Ibrahim Ali Salam and a lot of prophets that came from them, right prophets and messengers, and to name a few Ibrahim Elisa Musa Ali Salam, ala Salam, and so on. And finally, that torch was passed down to our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, as the final messenger to close that message, right. Elio MacMall Tula convenor Khumba Antonia Mattia aleikum wa rahmatullah comunista Medina. That's
what the isas were.
Allah has completed this religion for us to the prophets of Allahu alayhi wa sallam.
But the thing is, has the message stop there?
Right? Is is the role of a messenger stop there, as Hala Allah granted us this ummah, a unique thing that we are all the messengers of the messengers, Allahu alayhi wa sallam. I know here's
a bit louder.
Mashallah, Mashallah. So, the message is Allah Salam passes legacy to us, this was part of his last message to us that we should pass this on to people that are coming forward, right, whatever we heard from him, right, whatever we know of the Quran, we just need to spread it further and further. Until a day comes in sha Allah in the future, a day will come after the time of ACLs, I'm coming back without heat would be the same, like how it was at the time of other Muslim that hate would be spread. And there would be no shock on earth again.
Subhanallah This is the legacy that we're talking about, of leaving a legacy, right? Every one of us in our limited capacity, we can make a difference.
You don't have to think about what type of you know life you're living because Allah has granted us the ability to do something as long as you can wake up everyday in the morning, breathe, impact somebody's holidays, that opportunity for you. And this is where the virus can come comes out. And especially the youth, if you look at the time of the process, and the youth who are the ones who really really spread the deal, right? There were everybody who contributed in different ways, but the youth was a crucial part of it, as well, our universities, well, with all law of youth, we just have too many, too many youth so far, right? This is where come to the topic of today's day, which
is in pursuit of wisdom. And when it comes to knowledge, knowledge doesn't come just by itself, we need to have wisdom, right? Knowledge, just if you just take a lot of information that is not knowledge, right? It follows action. And those actions lead us to wisdom. And we need to constantly pursue that wisdom, right? And who do you who do we pursue that from? That's who our scholars, they are the inheritors of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam of the messengers. Those are the scholars, right? They are the ones that we can see embodying the example of a Prophet alayhi salam, and they we refer to them Hamdulillah we have two amazing scholars today. First of them being Sheikh Ibrahim
new, and Sheikh who will be covering a topic on the obstacles of seeking knowledge. And there are a lot of obstacles, right? For example, us as students, and I'm not a student anymore, but inshallah we are all students to the till till death when they lie to Allah. Isn't that I mean?
It's our so, you know, we will face a lot of obstacles, as as long as we are trying to seek knowledge there are going to be obstacles. We need to bear patients we need to see understand how do we overcome this BML Isola chef Abraham will be briefing us on that.
Just a little bit about Sheikh Ibrahim No. Sheikh is one of our closest beloved Messiah here, whom we have been taking knowledge from I personally for a very long time, and I see a lot of brothers here who have been attending his classes regularly. And Sheikh has been quite impactful in Malaysia. He's been here since 2000, early 2000. And his his different classes, different programs that he's been doing in the Dawa space here. So inshallah Bitna Lightoller. Just shortly Sheikh will be coming up on the stage, sharing his thoughts on that, just before that, I want to share some things about share. Sheikh has a lot of things that CIC is doing some highlights. It's crazy how much I have so
much baraka and Baraka, Antietam and I, I hope Allah God grants us the same Baraka, right. So Sheikh is known for another another is an organization back in Nigeria, where
it's an education organization, but we another does a lot of different things, building wealth building hospitals, universities, schools, and another has impacted people like crazy in, you know, in Asia, and I've known another since its inception. And this is crazy. So just to know more about another, you can scan the QR code here and hamdulillah another has a lot of classes regularly that she conducts. And you can see that in the next slide where there are regular classes Sheikh has a doubt with the word on on Mondays, then Sheikh has three other Salin on Tuesdays. On Thursday Sheikh has tafsir so tell Bukhara and finally on Saturday Sheikh has global blog and check has a lot of
other programs so if you close the watch another you will on Instagram or other socials, you will be able to follow through another has a telegram channel that you can you know
sign up for, and you can get all the details of all the events. We have about I think 800 people in that group, I guess. So I'm gonna. So these are some resources inshallah we will show these slides later, so that you can scan them again. And Sharla. Shortly we will be starting right shakers here. So that is it. Then another slide, I
think there's a q&a slightly, so there will be a slider for q&a For QR, so you just can scan it, and then ask your questions, whatever questions you have, asking questions is amazing. I just want to emphasize this on on this little bit. A lot. Someone once told me that, you know, two people are awarded the share. And the one who asked questions are immensely because the one who asked questions, good questions and benefits everyone. It's not just him benefiting, he's actually benefiting everybody else in the space, right? This makes sure that you're, you're not really very creative with your questions, but, you know, ask questions that would benefit everyone and inshallah
benefit yourself as well. So without any further delay, I'd like to invite Sheikh on the stage to share his wisdom with Lightoller on how we can, you know, overcome all these different obstacles to seeking knowledge is a form of heroin. So inshallah I will catch up with you guys later, just to just before she comes, we will be having a break time right after this. After the break, you can go like during the break time you can go pray Maghrib and have dinner there are a lot of places in UAE you can have dinner, a lot of Maha Luz and even central the center there are quite a quite a few places that are open. So you just got to come back here by 850. And we will be having a couple of
quiz there'll be prizes distributed after the quiz, some announcements that would be quite beneficial for you, Michelle, after that we will have Dr. Belaz session.
So shoulder it'd be waiting for already here.
Smell like a plant or a heap? Or salatu salam I
mean and the beans have been hammered instead of Allah, Allah he will, he will sell him about
this icon located and for
giving me another opportunity to
stand before you and speak about this important, a noble topic which is about seeking knowledge.
May Allah subhanaw taala accept it from you and put it in the visa okay, it has an ad
and ask Allah subhanaw taala to make all of us amongst the students of knowledge and reliable people for Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
This is a very big and wide topic. And I do believe
it is one of the most important topic to be discussed. Now.
I'm talking about these days of ours, because we know education has been distorted.
Not easy to find a proper place where you can properly educate yourself.
As far as education is concerned,
that kind of life that we
I mean to be
observed by the predecessors, we don't see it anymore nowadays.
So that's why we can see that we're witnessing one of the signs of the Day of Judgment. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, one of the signs of the Day of Judgment is that knowledge is going to be removed.
And Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam I said in Allah,
somebody who's speaking
Rasulullah sallallahu selama said in Allah Allah, Allah Allah in designing tizio who needs to do the region
NEMA young people and by the covenant
is it Allah subhanaw taala does not remove knowledge
by removing it from the chest of the, of the scholars,
Allah subhanaw taala usually doesn't do that there are some circumstances where a person went too far and Allah subhanaw taala removed the knowledge that he is if somebody can tell the brothers to use their force
so, as I was saying, Allah subhanaw taala usually doesn't remove knowledge from the heart and the chest of the people used to be its color, and then he just woke up and fine, everything is gone. This doesn't happen easily.
But there are circumstances where a person will be going to fall
in disobeying Allah subhanaw taala and going against his laws, in a way allows me to remove the knowledge completely from from him.
Like what happened to that person
and they will
retell that story, which is a story of a person who is half Hispanic Italian now, but then he decided to change his religion and marry a Christian woman. And Allah subhanaw taala took away everything he has except the first and the beginning of Serato I hated Obama I want to live in a comfortable no Muslim, he said that was the only thing that alas Martin left with.
Nobody shed light on this but what I want you to understand is the fact that Allah subhanaw taala doesn't usually take the knowledge from the chest. What he does is that he will take this cordless one after the other
the promise a lot so I said hey, let me aapke animal Oh, you argument it tougher than Nelson Olson Jehan for Su ILUV after for volu Aman
Allah smarter will keep on taking this call this one after the other,
you know, smile and that is
that was a year
when Allah subhanaw taala you know, took out of this life. Grace call as you know that we rely upon the die within the
I remember the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe salam to see this happening, because this is a clear warning that everyone should be very careful that we are moving towards this time that prompts a lot. So asset knowledge will be removed. And Jan will be ignorance will be rampant.
So he says Allah will take them back to him until the time that is nobody amongst the scholars remains. It took an unknown Surah Oosten Johanna. So how long is he in the time of Imam dammy who was one of the closest students of shaping the San Antonio the heavy cyber sphere? He was saying,
you know, he was saying this, this hadith is referring to that to that time.
And we're talking about five 800 years ago. He said the prophets Allah sama is talking about their time Subhan Allah, He says the real scholars have gone, we have only a little among those little, the real scholars among them. Who are you, I mean, using the knowledge that Allah has power to grant them they have very little at the basil minority. They are the minority amongst the other scholars. So I don't know what kind of comment a lobby will be given if he is to witness the time we're living in. So let's allow some asset into the NASA ocean to Harlan, for Su
people are going to take leaders, ladies here not necessarily meaning the authority,
but the authority in terms of scholarship, we will recognize people on this call as speaking on our behalf
and will lie this is exactly the time we live in it. There are many, many, many people who are talking and on behalf just because they have a language to speech to address others and we take them as callers and they're not they're not able to put them in the you know, circles of the level they didn't qualify that. But since they have the language, you know, they speak you know very fluently you know, everyone has taken them as, as a scholar,
special scholars super scholar, we have heard all of these statements which if you look at them through the Hadith of the Prophet Salah al Islam or you understand that this is masiva on the hammer salon center. So people are going to take those wants to be acting as the scholars who are giving them the fatwas for Sue so
For the community is going to be asking them
and when they are asked, they will not fear Allah subhanaw taala they will begin fatwa based on the deficient knowledge they have.
And what happens after that they are misguided, and they will misguide others.
So we're living in this time, where the true knowledge is not easy to be, to be found. But alhamdulillah good is still there, the Hamas allies
are sisters, the most important thing you do in this life to elevate yourself in ranking, and to come closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. And to be loved by Allah subhanho wa Taala is knowledge.
There is nothing that can stand in it position without knowledge.
you find the greatest people, the best of the best. They struggle, and they do everything possible to get the knowledge.
I'm pretty sure all of us are aware of the story of Musa alayhis salam, when he was giving a speech to the Jewish community.
And it was so powerful, the speech an excellent
it has to be like that this the Prophet of Allah to Allah one of the audit. So they really enjoyed that speech. So somebody told him, it says
Is there anyone? Is there anyone who knows better than
in another direction? That man asked him? Do you know somebody who knows better than you? Musa alayhis salam said, No.
So Allah blamed him badly because
unless Allah subhanaw taala is always there.
Musa did not interview, you know,
this, that you might be thinking but as Adam speaking what we're talking about the knowledge you have, Musa was supposed to say yes. At least he's supposed to impart that knowledge back to Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah says, we'll have a quality element.
And also, you have to understand this, that we're alive. You know, no matter how much knowledge you have, amongst the people who are listening to you, that might be somebody who knows way better than
this is how it is. That's why you don't belittle people, respect everyone who deserve to be respected.
And you always be humble, then Allah subhanaw taala will increase you in in knowledge. There are some people who are very picky in terms of how to take knowledge from and this is good. If you're doing it in accordance to that which is mentioned by it's called by the scholars with acla. It's not even a deed. You are being picky in terms of choosing the scholars who have tarbiyah and the knowledge and good aqidah that one is fine.
But sometimes we exaggerate, we go beyond the requirement. I have a scholar who knows better than me, however,
I am, let's say 7080 years old, I
get it but that one is only 20 years old.
I don't have any interest in his knowledge because he is he's young.
That's arrogance, as well as Allah selama said in the mid Ashraf Issa, one of the signs of the Day of Judgment is that people are going to seek knowledge from the Asami. Assad that means the younger, younger ones, that's the literal meaning. But Lionel Valak said, no promise Allah somebody's not talking about this
is talking about you taking the knowledge from those people who don't qualify to pass the knowledge to you.
Delight Mubarak said, As for the young person who has the knowledge and well versed in the knowledge, this is not a young person, this is COVID.
We should take note on this because we still have some people because of the title we have, we don't accept correction.
He will not we still have them. You correct your lecture sometimes you'll fail if you correct your shirt you have issues with you come into the class.
And he should be happy that Allah bless him with somebody next to him when he makes mistake he will correct rather than things remaining the way they are. You only know that you're wrong when you go back to Allah subhanaw taala that will be a tragedy.
You need somebody who is mentally that can tell you but we saw in this space
that this is supposed to be done in this way. Should be happy with that. These are the people that you bring closer to you. The scholars in the past what we learn from them is that they never see something wrong coming from their chef, except that the correcting immediately
has to be somebody to do this but unfortunately we live in
In a time since we value the titles more than what is and doing what is what is connected.
So the prophets, Allah, someone who said that I really want us to understand it correctly, he is not talking about you seeking the knowledge from the younger ones, the younger person, if he has the knowledge, he is this caller that shouldn't be teaching.
And the live numbers used to be taken to the place where Alma meets the important people amongst the companions.
Omar, he hasn't much lists that he sit with the people who participated in the Battle of battle, the old companions and he discussed with them the matters of the OMA. So he usually come with Abdullah ibn Abbas bass was failure. So some of them got annoyed, because they also have children at his age or even bigger than him older than him, but they don't bring them Why is he bringing this boy all the time.
So we talked to him, why we also can we can bring our kids but this model is is very important Megalis kids should be avoided from this madness.
Because this is the most serious model is in the time of Allah.
And then Allah kept quiet.
Right and tomorrow so bringing, so since they get annoyed, so Omar decided to
let them understand why is he bringing bringing it?
So he asked him one day, one of the line numbers was there.
And he told them, Allah subhanaw taala says Elijah rasool Allah, He will,
until then on this forum, what do you understand from this is that Allah is volatilities in formula, so let's Allah so by that, when the victory comes, and magecart is conquered, you know,
now everything looks like been done, you know. So it's time for you to have the deferral to go and just busy, get busy with the evidence and do its thing far and
is it correct? This is correct, this is very literal meaning that you take from the IRA, which everyone can do that.
But Quran is full of principles and Maxim's and collide, where you go deeper, some of the as the extract of the scholars trust me will lie if you don't, if you don't study the soul, you will never never be able to understand why are they getting these things, but when you study will sort of look at you look at the if you relate it to what they're talking about, you understand it is there, how come I do not see?
So I'm gonna ask him the moment of balance, he says, Yeah, Willa, what do you think about that?
Sure, they would get more annoyed. How is he comparing them? This boy would? What do you understand from this? It says, I do understand that. Allah subhanaw taala is informing Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam that you Agile is failing here. You're about to live this life. So you need to prepare for that. It's not about when you get in the big screen, or it's just about that your mission has been accomplished and your action is very near. And you need to get ready for that. So they were so amazed with it. With this kind of understanding at this age. Omar told them yes, that's exactly what I understood from the idea that this is the Agile of Rasulullah sallallahu Sama, been informed to
Rasul Allah, but in that indirect way.
He said, This is the reason why I'm bringing into this place. What brought him to the place, knowledge.
Knowledge, he will Allah. That's where last Martin says you have for 11 Lavina Armando Minco.
They used to be a scholar. That's called a highlight story is amazing to see how Alaska is elevating people ranking
is called I used to be one of the Milani slaves
and also very bad look, bad looking.
And he has some disease is his face it can understand that he has definitely, that is deficiency in
one point in the face. They said even when he speaks sometimes the saliva comes out of his mouth because of that sickness. I mean, the look is still good.
But trust me, people used to travel from all over the world just to meet him to sit.
I remember one of the Bulevar came to Mancha and he decided to meet this
scholar and take the knowledge from from him I guess.
He wanted to take knowledge from him to ask him some questions about hunch because at that time, they used to see that the footwear that comes from him about what is the most accurate, so the Khalifa managed to meet him and the son of the Khalifa doesn't understand why this humility of the Caribbean from the Khalifa towards this shared ambition.
He doesn't even look nicer. You know that you don't have to qualify. So he was annoyed. And after they left the place in the clubhouse, very humble. So the son blamed the farmer. He said, What is this? The father hates him, he says, it says, Keep quiet. I will never forget my humiliation in in the presence of this person who is originally a slave. And he told his son, he says, study
is what brought him to this place is knowledge. And he will lie. This is what knowledge does. That's why the poet says, l mu era federal Beighton la sallahu wa Jahan Yan demo beta and Z will current knowledge brings up a house that doesn't have foundation you will lie you have some scholars, if you go back to the root, they will nobody in the community
but because of the knowledge they are everyone,
one of the scholars, he reached Raka and I guess that this is the time of Haroon Rashid, if I'm not mistaken, when this scholar reached the place, all of the people in the community came to
the Omo wallet
Belfie no slave of the Khalifa she was with him. So she saw the whole community coming to meet that that person. She never saw a crowd like this.
So she was asking the club and she said who is this? He said this is so and so on. So she visited us today.
Swan Allah He said this is so and so and so share this with us today. He said this is the real kingdom not the one where
you Allah so that's what knowledge and Mo fo Baitullah assassin Oh, well Jana yeah demo by tell anyone currently, ignorance destroys a house of honor and mobility.
You will love so that's what knowledge does. So back to the story of Musa alayhis salam So Musa said
nobody knows better than me. Allah subhanaw taala sent
why to him, informing him that that answer was what's wrong?
I'm gonna imagine in a hurry. He says our sleep. Imagine
what I need from this story to support what you're talking about because we cannot go through this land. The story is this God Musa immediately after hearing the statement of Allah subhanaw taala Abdullah has given the image man Buhari, we have our slave living in the moment but having he immediately said he said Yeah, hola que for severe really? How can I reach him And subhanAllah removed immediately based on the instruction that allows Mahara to Allah going to see freedom for one for knowledge, just to seek the knowledge since Allah is going to inform him that this person knows better than you also left to see that person so that he can get from that which allows for
templates to fit.
And we all know the story, the way a mass content written it and the profit or loss and also narrated the story in, in detail. So what I'm trying to say my differences is the most important thing you do in this life, to elevate yourself in ranking is to study to study the correct knowledge the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I set
my unit in law we hired him for up to 15. If Allah subhanaw taala wants good for you, Allah will grant you ability to have deep knowledge in the religion of Hamas.
You will lie you will never find something like this. You know, Ashraful market is a market of heat. The best position is a position of establishment of heat, right of Allah.
Do you know that in this place, Allah subhanaw taala when he talks about those who are bear witness that there is none to be worshipped except him. This is the greatest confirmation and affirmation you have of the appeal of Allah Smetana exists in the Sunnah and the Hadith that allows Mattila after mentioning his name, the the angels, the next one is called this.
Shaheed Allah Nola in Lahore. While
we're all learning a core image of this
Subhanallah You see Allah subhanaw taala they're the only one that allows for to confirm.
In the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said,
he says when are William Waterford, Columbia when the liberal Emma Waterford MBA said the scholars they are the inheritors of, of the prophets. I think there's more than enough to motivate anyone who's looking for sheriff in this dunya to stand up my study. He says that if you're looking for the inheritance
of the prophets, those who inherit a prophet. Look at the scholars. He says when the Gambia let me worry through, Deena what are the Harmon we're in nama whare through LA nama water through Allah from an Africa who AcademyHealth in why? He said the prophets of Allah subhanaw taala did not leave their hum, ring it gold, you know, silver, they don't leave that. And in fact, the prophet will never agree to leave this amount of money. That's why the salah Salam, salam, there was a time he was praying, you know, Subhan Allah, he quickly finished the prayer. And then he moved me quickly to the house. The Companions were shocked. They did not know what happened because they see him being
very serious. It goes to the house and he asked Ayesha or whatever, whoever he met amongst his wife about the three Durham, Durham that he left when the Companions asked him the answer, like what happened? Is everything okay? He said, Yes, it's okay. But I just remember that I left three deer hunt, you know, at home, so I'm afraid of getting into trouble before I distributes them, so I just went back to this person to those people who deserved when he was sick, and he told Ayesha to spend whatever balance of money he had left in his house. So she kept some part of it. She said, I prayed I prayed, maybe he will wake up I need that money. When he woke up the prompts allow someone the
first thing he asked I said, Did you give the money to the needy? She said to me, I was hola I was afraid maybe you may need it when you wake up. It says Aisha What do you want me to tell the last man to want to meet him while these dinner him are still in my house. So I just want you to understand that profit they don't leave anything at home, whatever the left is going to be little and is supposed to be dispersed in, in charity. So what is the thing they left for the OMA? That's knowledge.
And who are the people who take this knowledge, this inheritance this estate, let's call this that's why so let's allow some asset from an alpha who will be having worship wherever managed to take that knowledge that the prophets Allah sama left for the Ummah definitely is the person that takes a great portion of blessing from Allah subhanho wa taala. Brothers Sisters, it is the deficiency to be an accurate
he will make big decisions to be ignored in this industry.
And everyone is invited the prophets Allah Azza wa settleable me why Japan Allah Kula Muslim or Muslim seeking knowledge is obligatory upon everyone,
male and female is wide important for us to go on, seek the knowledge, knowledge of that which our religion cannot be completed without knowing it, this is the minimum you can do
to be ignorant is deficiency and everyone should try their best to remove this deficiency.
The previous nation, they were the best because of the knowledge and we still remember the up to date and that vicar was kept by Allah subhanaw taala up to date up to date because of because of the knowledge he will learn all of these famous people that we used to remember you know, remember them when a circumstance arrive.
And some of them we totally forgot.
From the musicians and the footballers and movie makers and all of these won the presidency we remember some of them which shattered when we see the similar shift is taking place
the neighbor false calling report
as opposed to these there are some people although they're dead but they're still alive and you have some people do they're alive they're dead so try to be among those people who are lost what is keeping them good remember it's in this industry
so let's a lot of sama said it is the last Hadith I will quote about the virtues of knowledge and then we move to the main topic been given to me
spatula that heavies went
home remember the last thing I was saying before I said this
what is that?
No before then, that was the name of the ship and it was okay when I remember inshallah I come back to it. That's the problem of digressing, so much. So next time just set me to speak about the Hawaii.
Anyway, so may Allah subhanaw taala grant all of us ability to join this community. So as I said, everyone is required to to seek the knowledge and remove the ignorance from him himself. However, there are obstacles on
way to seek in the knowledge which will be the light Allah will be focusing on. I have a lot of them so I will try to summarize before they people start telling me that your time is is in sharp. So anything that is good an excellent you know that will bring you closer to Allah subhanaw taala shaytaan will never let you succeed in
whatever is good and excellent and is loved by Allah subhanaw taala shaytan will never let you succeed in that. It will Allah Subhana Allah Allah in the Quran is a familiar idea now membrana Idi Amin kullfi One a man him one Shama ilium, wala Tegile Shaqiri he promise,
you know, Allah subhanho wa Taala and he saw by the name of Allah subhanaw taala, that he will never let the children of items succeed.
So whatever is good, and it's a blessing, and it's going to bring you closer to Allah Subhan Allah to Allah Szczepan will never let you reach that way. So, the battle between you and him is going to be very, very strong. So in sha Allah, I will mention some of the obstacles that usually a student of knowledge in all phases in his journey to educate himself, number one, for suddenly
have been by intention in knowledge, the most important thing that keeps your knowledge intact is a good intention. Imam Muhammad said Allah al ly Ali Hussain shaman lemon Nieto, there is nothing similar to knowledge, as long as the intention is, is good.
There is nothing similar to knowledge as long as the intention is, is good. What should be the intention of a student of knowledge? The scholar said he must make sure that this study that he is seeking this knowledge that he's seeking is doing this for Allah subhana wa Tala. That's number one. Number two, to remove the ignorance from him himself. Number three, and also to remove the ignorance from the community. Meaning I'm doing it to Allah subhanaw taala to remove the ignorance from myself and also to help others who are not fortunate to get the knowledge to remove the ignorance from from themselves. This should be the intention of the student of knowledge
and Alhamdulillah to scholars ambition, that at anytime you realize that your intention is not good, you can make a U turn and come back. That's the good thing about our religion, you will never be late when it comes to heat and al Qaeda at any moment you want to fix it. Alas Muhammad, Allah is what can you do? Because sometimes we might be looking for the knowledge but for the sake of the dunya there are some people who are looking for the knowledge for the sake of debate. I met a brother who says he wants to go to Medina and study.
He said he wants to go to Malaysia and study. And the reason why he wants this he said he just want to see him debate in a person with evidences that that person cannot even talk in front of
Subhan Allah. As soon as I met this person, you know, he said the only reason why he wants to see himself in Islamic University of Medina is for the sake of debate, you want to see that whenever he engaged in a debate with a person that person cannot say anything, because he has all the evidences.
And this is very wrong intention which the scholars reminded us, you know, to stay away from from it. They said do not study in order to debate others, your knowledge will not be blessed by Allah subhanaw taala study for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala if in the future, you happen to debate with others, and then you go from it, good idea, if you are studying for the sake of the debate, Allah Sparta will withdraw his support from you. And at the end of the day, that knowledge will have no baraka and your knowledge will be restricted. But if you're doing it for Allah Subhan Allah to Allah, Allah Baraka in your time, and you will be able to do the necessary in the future if there is
a need, because debate is not something that you should be looking for, or we should be looking for is Medaka. Look for a partner to sit down and revise that knowledge with him. The scholars in the past they do everything possible to get the knowledge and also to revise it with with their colleagues.
We have heard about some of them when they don't find somebody to revise the knowledge with they provide the knowledge with who animal the house. That was one of them had the theme. He goes to the house, nobody's there to listen to. So he goes to his sheep had a fuller and fuller and fuller and fuller so people tend What do you do and he say, I just want to feel that I'm reading it to somebody.
Not debate. But when the debate is, is warranted when you get ready, get ready for that and you will be supported by Allah subhanaw taala so the first obstacle that is
hindering, you know the students and prevent him to get the best knowledge is
lack of class or suddenly you have a very bad intention when seeking the knowledge. And trust me my dear brothers and sisters, the most important thing that is keeping your knowledge intact is a class. Whatever you memorize sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala be even ly as original it will never be taken away from you, it will stay with you forever ever, inshallah. McCann lay down a worker. This is what Imam Malik mentioned when people went to him and told him Imam
you have written your book and mortar. But now everyone is writing about you wrote a book called water and now everyone is writing Wattpad so it's look, it looks like you waste your time. You might be wanting to be unique in this regard, but everyone is writing one. You know the one who was telling him this not knowing that Imam Malik was not thinking about others when he was compiling the book. That's why when he finished informing him about what people are doing nowadays, well Malik said no, don't worry. You will know in the future only that which was done for the sake of Allah Santana remains Subhan Allah we are saying that those animonda As written by the scholars are not
based on the sake of Allah subhanaw taala we are saying that that's between them and Allah Subhanallah nowadays, and even before whenever you see him what the first one that comes to the mind of that audience is the motto written by Imam Malik.
So please take note on this even your study the dunya ones, make sure that your intention is correct.
Wallah in my dear brothers sisters most of us are wasting wasting their time. It's been four years, five years, six years but all of them will be useless. More if you die. Everything you spend in this university in that university will be useless if your intention is not good.
And as I always mentioned that having good intention is the only solution you have because you need a man smarter to be with you in your journey to pass whatever you want to pass. If you have good intentions you're doing for him Allah smarter will support you.
And what are you looking for now you're looking for the dunya you will have good job and have good results you know, if you have good intention and you do need for Allah subhanaw taala you know that in Allah Allah but in Napa, even Allah Sparta wants perfection and he wants whatever you do things you do it perfectly. So you want to be very serious in your education. And at the end of the day, you get the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala what next and you get good results.
That should be additional intention after intending Allah subhanho wa Taala it will get the support inshallah you will never fail. And Allah azza wa jal, which stands for you after you graduate is
one of the worst moments that a person can be in is when you meet Allah subhanaw taala with bad intention in seeking knowledge Rasulullah Salah sama nation, that first three people to be taken to hellfire. One of them is a scholar who wasn't needed for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. One of them is a scholar who was not doing it was for the sake of Allah as well.
So my dear brothers and sisters, make sure that your intention is correct. Whatever you're doing, you're doing it for Allah subhanho wa Taala and to remove the knowledge from to remove the ignorance from yourself and the ignorance from the Muslim community wherever you live.
That's number one. Number two Catarratto mashallah dunya
how many people used to come to school and then they stopped because of work?
Because of other dunya matters a lot. That's why unfortunately, when you start a class, how many people you are going to have hundreds of them. I remember there was a time we have a class in UAE. I told some of my students we need to start studying. And as such, I just need like five or 10 people.
So the one who is making an announcement and went and announced it to any place.
Smart Allah. The first day, I got 300 people.
I was like, What is going on? I was looking for. So somebody told me that okay, that's what happens. We have nothing to say we were pretty customer. We just heard about the class and
I said no problem. Inshallah. We'll come back to that amount I want
it go the next day or so and hamdulillah some few left. The next day also some few left. You know, that's how he kept going until that amount that I was looking for. And these are the people that remain with us until the time the class and
so what happened? Most of the people if you talk to them, they will tell you this
He is busy with this visit with that.
And to be honest with you, this is lack of management of time, the comparison, the promise of last summer been working actually harder than us, you know, the life is much harder than our life.
But they did an excellent job in seeking knowledge, and they never leave any opportunity. They can benefit themselves in terms of knowledge, accept that they reach that place. They go to work, so many of them are farmers, many of them are business people. But Subhanallah those people who cannot go everyday and study, what do they do? For instance, me and
I go to work, he goes to work. So I tell him, if we're gonna do this, then the class will not be able to get everything I'm going to argue going to I lost you lost to why can't we make it like this?
Today, I will be on break.
I go and study and take note on everything. And tomorrow, I will go for work. And then you go, this is what the companions were doing. This is called a tunnel.
Humble, O'Meara Mahan, we used to have a friend. So he talked to his friend he says we're losing a lot. And it's it's inappropriate. Dunya is distracting us. Why can't we make it in this way?
Well, Allah, he take it seriously. It is a big deficiency to live this dunya to live in this dunya without seeking knowledge.
And I don't see anyone who has excuse. If you told me that the dunya is taken 24 hours from your time, trust me, my dear brother, sisters, you're doing the wrong thing in your life. And you will regret one day. I have seen many people who regret and Alhamdulillah they regretted on time.
Yeah, Hamdulillah. I've known people who are very good, very excellent in business, and they're doing very well, very well. But then they just realize that this business, although is profiting and they're getting good thing, and they're doing it in the right way. But they just realize that almost every single moment of the time has been taken by the dunya.
Remember, some of them, I'm telling them, please be moderators in a way you just have to quit Subhanallah and they quit. They come to maintain the balance. They lose everything. No, to my knowledge, those people that I'm talking about Allah Sparta put them up.
Because we do have time, but we did not. We are not managing it correctly. We do have time we're not managing it correctly. Dunya doesn't take all of your time. And is it time for you to give for Allah Subhan Allah to Allah, and for that which would benefit you.
So one of the obstacles is too much been busy with the junior matters. So maintain the balance. And take this statement of Lokmanya hockey
as the thing that is motivating. You're leading your life. He says son,
Aaron, Melinda duniya, aka, big, big papa. While I'm on the Athletic Academy.
He said, Son, serve your dunya according to the time you want to spend in this day
and serve you ask her according to the time you're going to spend,
how long are you going to be?
How long are you going to be in Africa?
Whatever, no end right. And how long are we going to be in the dunya? Let's say you live for 1 million years. Compare this with the life in Africa. Even the life in the balsa?
No, hello, acela
know how they set up
how long has he been on the ground
9000 years 10,000 years
holy like this nobody.
But unfortunately, we make it the other way around, we serve the dunya more than the way we serve the earth.
So, please buy this. My dear brothers and sisters, make sure that you dunya does not distract you from from study. So, how to overcome this Manage your time properly. Understand that the most valuable thing you have after Iman and your soul is your time. That time has to be managed properly and gain knowledge the greater portion of your time study study in the last odd you appreciate this word of mine. One of these obstacles is Castle lasers.
This obstacle is talking about our current students.
Am I right? Yes, I know. You will not say yes, but yes. Yeah, Castle.
Laziness is one of the worst elements that is harming our students.
Trust me, my dear brothers sisters, most of our students, actually all of us students, they do have the capacity to learn and to elevate themselves in ranking and to bring themselves up. Well, unfortunately, out of laziness, want everything to be given to them, you know, just like that it cook, you ask them to open their mouth and you put inside, you don't want to work.
That's why when you learn, when do you revise your knowledge, we revise it a day before the examination.
You get it and when we fail, we blame who
lectures Wi Fi,
not knowing that he has been giving you the information for the past four months.
And you kept them you think that was a joke. If he knows that you can get everything at once, then he can just wait at the last you know, day you know before the exams he gets gave you the slides and every single go and study and come for the exam tomorrow.
And he knows that knowledge cannot be taken in this way. We're going to talk about this insha Allah later, knowledge cannot be taken in this way. The gradual process is necessary. That's why they break it down into pieces like that. So that you have to remove the laziness and work for it. They mentioned that Imam nawawi goes and take knowledge from around 13 scholars or 13 deaths in a day and then come back before he sleeps. He memorize everything then he sleeps. They mentioned that amount Baka Bukhari will wake up at night for more than 13 times, you will begin to wonder when he is when when does he sleep.
And every time he wakes up, he will light of the lantern.
And write something that comes to his mind into when he was speaking. He remembers something you know, ask him they have a very, you know, little and light sleep.
Very serious people. They mentioned some of these collars, even the days when the chef is not coming to the class. They mentioned that these color these students they used to go to The Mentalist and sit down there. Somebody asked them, Why don't you go in the shape is not coming. They said we don't want our soul to remember something called rest. That's why all of this call us when they talk about the knowledge. They tell us how the line moves lie in aloe vera had to adjust.
Which we totally ignore. This knowledge cannot begin with resting at all.
You have to make sure that yes, you tell yourself that you don't have time to rest. You rest later, but not now.
So laziness is one of the the worst elements that are killing the ability of our students. And I leave you with this statement that I always leave you with which until now, many of us are not paying attention to the statement of the poet who says Well, I'm arteriovenous the Ivan cannot sell Corinne Allen tomorrow. I have never seen efficiency that is worse than the deficiency of somebody who has all that ability to bring himself up but he's not to trust me. Whether you agree, you don't agree. This is how I see your students. I know many students who have studied law, who are very smart, and they have the ability to be somebody but they spend four years in their life
doing nothing. And we always complain that that we have too much assignments. Yeah, I teach. I know when students are doing their assignments. When is that? The last week
the last two weeks before the end of the semester you're going to have only less students in your class where they all have them in the library
during that assignment, and then tomorrow when they come they're going to ask you sir Can we have extension
and some people will be asking you can I join this group when a week before the end of the
before the due date you know, you will let me know that this person is not going to do anything with this assignment you know most likely name it just went to be written another sheet.
So my dear friends, my dear brothers sisters, what my laziness will not take me anywhere.
You need to be very hard working. This knowledge is priceless. You know, you cannot price the value is so high and for you to get it you have to give all of your time that's called a set then it will give you a lesson and a bit.
That's obstacle number three, number three, obstacle number four, vulnerable marianella Lyssavirus.
And this one, I direct it to the old ones.
The younger people, you can close your ears if you wish. There are some people because of the age. They believe that class about
Ah, I cannot have the knowledge. This is very long, very long. Knowledge is for who?
For serious people.
Your age doesn't have any impact on this. Yeah, it's true that if you're young, the younger you are, the more you memorize. The younger you are, the more you realize
there was some bosses sleeping, I was asking them to memorize something at home, his younger sister was there. And she was not intended with the memorization. You know, subhanAllah when we're coming back from the school, I asked him repeat. He got stuck.
So how much she she She memorized? Those are the things that I was saying I was teaching him, he read them completely with no mistake.
Or lie to them, you see.
So that's, that's that's how it is. She's younger than him. So the capacity in terms of memorization is stronger than hers.
But that doesn't mean if you're old, you cannot do it. I remember they mentioned about him, it has a volume.
It has a volume. He was at the age of 40. Something he gets inside the masjid.
And then that plays the demonic is called us. And his opinion of the majority of the scholars that if you come to the masjid after ourselves, if you do, we shouldn't pray controversial matter among the scholars. So even hasn't came to the masjid.
He started praying Allah mark those corners, they were there. They told him, Oh, wait, wait, sit down, sit down, you cannot pray.
So even hasn't been ignored person. You know, he listened to them. It's Saturday,
the next day, something brought into the budget.
Something brought into the budget, but not after us.
So he sat down, he told me no, no, you cannot say that you have to sell it. What
is it? How come last time I came, he said I cannot I can have another break. Now I'm not praying and you told me I have to break what is this.
you know, he was annoyed and he told himself, this should be the last one
Subhanallah you stood up and seek the knowledge in the way they mentioned that the scholars in Spain Andalus none of them was able to debate with him in terms of knowledge. He did his books, you understand that you are dealing with the scholar, but many of them mentioned that he started seeking the knowledge. At that age,
you might find some scholars who are older than this. So what I'm trying to say is that knowledge is not fully NP.
One like all people should try to educate themselves and and, you know, go alongside with the young horse. I remember, it's totally one of our students here was narrating about an old man who joined at a fifth class. And he was delaying the rest of the student in making progress because according to the school policy, the student have to move all together at once. So he he was not able to move. So the school decided to fire him. They talked to him about that Subhanallah he
he cried a lot and he begged the school to give him one last chance. So he affected the hearts of everyone in the school when it's in print because you know Sweeney's current seriously.
He said this last day, she just he just want this last chance to be given. And so how long that stood in our set. Instead of a lie. He memorized the Quran before anybody in that school before everyone is the first member.
That's eluded him. And he was an old man. But he managed to do it. I heard that they have a program in Indonesia. For the old people for Quran memorization where they memorize one iron every day. I really like that. One I really don't rush, a day will come because being an old man, you don't know when are you going to die. Because sometimes when we make a mistake, oh, I'm too old and very close to Accra, who said,
You Allah, this is wrong perception, because we have all people who lived much longer than the young ones, even though many of us reach 100 years old, 90 years old, 80 years old. So even at the last minute, as long as the Akal is there, knowledge is valueless. I'm sorry, knowledge is priceless. It has a lot of value understand this, that the best thing you should do before you leave this life is to go back to Allah subhanaw taala as a scholar, or students of knowledge. So this is an obstacle mentioned by the scholars that the person looking at his age and then telling himself that I'm too old to go to to the school. And wherever you can learn. Just go to that place Evan
If that place is attended by the younger people, just be humble, you know what you're looking for. And we need that kind of sound. That's why classes but you have the mixture of all the younger ones is more serious than the classic but you have always younger, younger people, especially in our time.
Because most of the most of the younger people,
they attend the class Half.
Half of them is in the class and the other half is with with the media, but the old people they are more mostly so at least we can maintain the balance and you have somebody who will remind the people who are in the class to pay attention.
Okay, one of these obstacles mentioned by the scholars is Rob to Adam or opt in and maybe
you learn and he didn't put that which you learn into into action. And this is really an obstacle nowadays, who are the delays laziest people in terms of practicing what they learn
the labor and society or the students?
The students are not trusted by their brothers and sisters. I live in a place whereby you see the one who's trained the Sunnah prayers, they are the the old people in the Lima in the community, the students and molecules and see the Masonic brains.
They don't pray the sun. They don't do all of those virtues mentioned by the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam because it's easy with that knowledge. And unfortunately, in some places they call the person who is praying Sunnah prayers, they call him certain titles.
If they didn't call him a deviant person, I'm really serious about this, because I have witnessed this with my own eyes. So I used to think that this is our own, you know, epidemic, you know, the disease were affected by this disease nowadays. But then I read in the Book of Enoch vami ism at Delphi Natalija. Along with them, he was defending one of the scholars in what was the problem of that column. The problem is that he prays to the priests a lot. So some of the younger students they blame in the society that he's praying a lot. We do have classes which we used to attend, people are telling us some people are telling others not to go to those classes, because the one who is
teaching talks about ima and things which are suffering in the heart a lot.
They blame him for that. So Subhanallah I love the statement of Norman famiIy. When he was defending that person, he says, What is this? What happened mentally ill?
Is there any value for knowledge, if you don't put it into practice action must be taken Masakan we'll add
one of the the free slave of eyeshadow Gila 100 He came to Arusha. He said, Yo Ma, please give me more Hadees from the prom salon salon. She told him she said, Yeah, masu, I believe, did you use what I have already given you? He said, No. I'm still busy compiling. You know what she told him? She said glad to hear that and
then to increase more evidence against yourself when you meet Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and set your feet will never leave their position when you meet Allah subhanaw taala on the day of judgment until Allah smart Allah asked you about four things.
Your life? How did you spend it? Your youth? How did you spend it? This one need
to be explained. The second one, who is the youth, somebody who he reached the age of 15. up to the age of 30. Some scholars said up to the age of 40 You're called Youth SHA, Allah will ask you specifically about this period of time, how did you spend it?
We really have a job. And the way to spend it correctly to avoid getting into trouble is already explained to us. All that you have to do is to go to the class and study. You will
the prophets Allah Azza wa said you will be asked about these two things. Number three, about your wealth. How did you get it? And how did you spend? Let's call a set elimination. creepiness vocal is now within an academy. It said these are the roots of the Islamic economic system. Everything you're studying in finance, Islamic finance, Islamic economics, accounting, whatever you study, which is related to business in Islam is based on these two things good Aaron, and good spending, Riba and macabre all of these things are part of these good earning a good spending. So when you go back to Allah, the only question that you have concerning your wealth, how did he get this dinner? And how
did you spend it will be question about that. So you have to be ready. Allah is not a joke. You're so rich that the wealth Allah has wanted to give you as a caretaker. You're the only one who
commanded by masculine tab to use it, you do have right over this money and nobody has right except you because Allah entrusted you in it, to put it in the right place. That's one of the mistakes we are making. We call the cut. I was reading an article.
Excellent. One of the speakers also Collins attacks is a very big mistake.
This is a very big mistake we're making. And that's why some people are hesitant and again, because they call it tax or taxes what is given by you, and it's a relationship between you and authority. The car is not a tax, because the one who owns the money and you is rumbled.
The money is his money. There is no way for you to describe what Allah subhanaw taala is taking from his money. He just assigned you as an agent to go and pass it to somebody and you call it tax. No, he's not. This is Allah taking his money and asking you to put it to the place where he wants. So Allah will question you, how did you get and where are you spend minutes that's why it is my personal advice to all of you on live. You will not be happy to have that long standing in front of Allah azza wa jal and the new judgment, the question about your wealth for 500 years.
So let's Allah Azza said the rich people go to Paradise before the poor people
with this wheel that's pedigrees. Why? Because of too much questions. You need the hisab TV
to be easy. And that's why my personal advice to all of us myself and everyone, avoid Shabaab,
whatever it's Shabbat, stay away from it. Always try to be on the safe side. Be like the father Pema Bukhari, who told his son that he's going to leave behind for him 1 million Durham. It says Mohammed fee shuba he said, I don't know a single Durham that has to lie in it. We're not talking about how even the show how old he says
that's why you see my will Makati in the way we see him. So the Salah, Salah sama said, Allah will ask you about your wealth, where did he get it? And how do you spend it? How difficult and how? And the last one is your knowledge? Did you use it or not? How did you lose the knowledge that allows
gratitude. So it's important to, to practice what you're learning, and whatever you practice, be the light and you will never forget it. That's why the Scholars they used to learn and immediately put it into action so that they can be able to remember it, you can either don't tell yourself I'm a student of knowledge and a scholar, you know, leave the purchase to others, no, this is stupidity, sorry to say in this one light stability, for you to say that no have a scholar then I you just
ignore this virtue you let keep on doing student of knowledge should be the best example for everyone to follow. You should be rushing to the massage before anybody else. You should be praying all the sudden, so that people will watch you and also do the same thing as you as you're doing. That unfortunately, we're not like that. We let we leave all the virtues to be taken by those who we see when we look at them with the eyes of deficiency, unfortunately,
one of these obstacles. So tip number one tactic, we're going to demonstrate, but it's very important. You know, many of us, we just started seeking the knowledge. Yeah, I know, you're gonna tell me your time is up. Don't worry. I'm also tired. Get
so you know, many of many of us, you know, we listen to about knowledge, you know, we listen to, to speech about knowledge. And then we want to join the community of learning. However, at the same time, we want to be scholars within a short period of time. Is that true? Yes. We want to be scholars, you know, in a short period of time.
Somebody was trying when he says terminated to see for piano. And Tom CFRP and Mona Vera be Giuliana in what did you know for No, no.
It says you're always wishing to become a scholar, a scholar who is very rooted in the scholarship, you know?
I mean, within the blink of an eye.
So that person says What did you do for the your insanity also is of different types. You Your type, the type of your insanity is this one, because people spend a lot of time for them to get what you see them. Having saw today average, which is the gradual process that I have mentioned is really necessary knowledge. We'll start with the small one. And go slowly, slowly until we reach the bigger knowledge. I want to study them. What is the first thing I should do?
I want to study for what is the first thing I should do
Thank you very much Allah give you him those to memorize the Quran.
In the first in the past, the first thing they used to do you know when they see a new student attending them Metalist is to ask him, did you finish the Quran or not? Go around all the scholars, almost all of them they started with the book of Allah smarter and before anything else.
I remember one of the boys he came to the madness of one of the scholars, they've asked me to finish Quran. He said yes. He said read the Usyk Mala po medical,
he got stuck. He said, boy, go finish the Quran first and then come and seek the knowledge. Because the Quran is the meta. You need that one to open the two for you. So the first thing is support. And then after you finish the Quran, you start with which book is the smallest one summarized version, you go gradually. But we don't do that. You just join a class, masha Allah, you know, the first year you finish, you think that M for P and you started doing the mattala in the moment 11 or 14 polyps.
And then you come and tell them the smallest fasciculata near Messiah, I get confused. Of course, you have to get confused because you don't have the foundation.
That's one last word Jesse is cool. All of Berlina Allah says you have to be on Bernie, what is Rabbani? Or Bernie the scholar set is the one who is given Tobio to the people please on small knowledge before the big ones.
To get an idea, it's not smartness for you to start with it.
I mean, heavy books have to start with the small one and go gradually. Good idea. And when you are memorizing and you're studying, please don't put a lot of things at once. I'm studying now I'm studying, I'm studying No, you have to strategize Quran, just stick to Quran. Don't go to anything else except Quran, you can go to the lectures and learn what can improve your iman no problem, but anything that need focus, this is my advice, stay away from that just couldn't keep on going with the Quran, it takes one year to finish you're done with them and move to them sooner or any other book that you should advise you to, to move to and go gradually when you take a book be patient.
Sometimes we rush out to finish this book today and it has 1000 by it you know I keep memorizing keep memorizing I spent years trying to finish it and I will not finish and even after I finish
you know I easily forget. So this gradual process is necessary and also having good strategy learning is necessary and the scholar said Yeji baalei can tell for them Alma what kind of automaton talking intervene, it is whatever point you want to take a discipline. You will master that one first. And then you move to the next one.
Okay, give a nice example. It says
what Peter artikelen lwml manraja Intel Arman is type of Columbia Hoja the scholar said, having so many disciplines at once you are studying this, you're studying that you will lose focus. And at the end of the day, you will lose everything. It says just look at the title of
If let's say the twins are racing,
or both of them are seen and I have to be the first one to come out, who will come out among them. None. Either they die both of them or we lose them. They come gradually. That's how knowledge is supposed to be done. That's why they said Mother calcolo corregir
Kulu whatever you put together at once, when it goes out also it grows at once and it will take gradually when it is going out it will also go gradually and by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala you will be able to realize that you are losing the knowledge and you bring it back because it is going also gradually. So please do understand this sucker is needed you have to be patient, go gradually Inshallah, one day you will be you will be it will be there.
One of them one of these obstacles mentioned by scholars is an overall what a jump in knifes.
Taking yourself and putting yourself out to make that humble and worthy enough to finish.
Our global HR business we have many students in the Sahara Allah they start studying and they think they are unknown and the capacity of the grid scholars challenging scholars.
This one is right, this one is wrong. But lie it is very unfortunate, very unfortunate. As one of our scholars said some of these guys if they make mistake in the
Prayer they will know how to fix it and he's the one who will tell you Abu Hanifa is this and that Imam Malik is this and that you know Shep is this Allah Subhan Allah and you know that those people you know some of them even called us man in Africa do you know who's of Malik LaFawn one of the lecturers in UAE
Who is this man enough fun
so how do you raise
minimum Okay, who was he just mentioned something that actually motion in there a lot you know?
He was the Khalifa number one.
Well, I would
say the Burj Khalifa right on the best in the Bahamas.
You know that there are some people who call him Moqtada innovator.
Do you know this?
Because their shed told them that Earthman was the one who added the other number three in Joomla.
Wala hadn't are these people, how are they going to meet Allah subhanaw taala with this statement? That's why I love that statement of rebuttal. For me when it comes to this he says pelagic there are some of the losers
who called at the moment alpha and innovator.
He says a phenomenon you call an innovator.
One of the closest people to us who likes it, Allahu Salam.
It is mapped into your Sami man and there you have
it says who are you? Sami, Sami means Ciao.
And you Allah, and this is what I call guru.
deceiving yourself that you have the knowledge or the capacity to challenge the previous callers. And we do have a lot a lot of people who are like that,
and I will leave you with this statement.
Even Muhammad says the human element you must move.
Ben Shahar, Murray married woman Callahan might say the flesh of the scholars is poisonous.
If you smell it,
you will become sick.
You eat it, you die. What are the two like the hotkey? As Terry Medaka see Malema.
He will let you touch a normal scholar who is righteous according to what we see, you know, we don't know what is between him and Allah subhanaw taala. But we judge people will find the most dangerous person to fight in this dunya is a scholar if this color is righteous is a righteous person and you're fighting him. You should remember the statement of Allah subhanaw taala Mullah Muhammad Ali Muhammad Ali Wellington, and to beat her wherever hate and fight my wali you should get ready with a war between me and who is fighting you, Robert Allen.
Read a book written by mama Valencia and see a lot of amazing stories about those people who believe the attained the knowledge, you know, that can put them in the capacity to criticize and even to take some of our scholars out of Islam.
He will not I don't want to digress too much. But there are some scholars who some of these kids call them kofod Just because they give fatwa in the wrong way. Yes, scholars are not infallible. They're not always right. But the level of respect should remain. Right? We correct them. Yet we respected Nobody says that Mr. Maryk is always right. He himself a madman except mom in the world, daddy. He brought us to the next to the grave of the prophets. Allah somebody told them students, you have to know that there was nobody above us except that he wants refuted somebody and somebody defeated him. The only one that cannot be refuted because he never makes a mistake is assumed by
somebody. There is no way for him to make a mistake in advance in the team. He's the only one that whatever comes from him he is perfect and excellent and correct. It is up to us to understand it correctly. But the scholars are not like that. Now money is the message you want to send. Imam Shafi said if you see a hadith that goes against what I'm saying please take the Hadees don't tell people I have another opinion to send them my opinion is the Hadith.
Imam Abu Hanifa is harsher than all of them are in the mambo Hanifa says Lamborghini Mundo Islam, them they actually had Terada al Kitab in Mortara. It says whoever claims to be Muslim, he shouldn't take my word without weighing it with the Sunnah of the Prophet Allah. So in the book of Allah first. If it doesn't go with it, throw it away from shopping says if you see something that goes against the Holy Spirit's throwing away, all of them Mr. Mohammed says please do not take from me take one
Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam what does that mean? It means you have to be somewhat sheltered from in Tamia said and please please my members because we still have people around us who's having this mentality of disrespect. That's why trust me, my experience and knowledge if you take this Manage you have nothing to do in your life except to criticize this to criticize that you will never say never met a person who was busy with this and at the same time became a scholar up to date. Never maybe you might see but I never saw a single person and no people who I left them in this man hunter, he came back I found them in the same place. And some of them they even left everything they
became corrupt in the religion they left
you alone I was debating somebody who used to be having this you know,
two hours his subpoena is similar to that below atheist
but it's going to I saw a person who used to also have in this approach I saw him smoking cigarettes you know somehow Allah do things which are inappropriate
Yeah, because when you don't take the Manhattan console as Allah saw correctly, you invented your own man hedge you attributed to the to the to the self assign a chemical that was oh, that was a student in Medina who stood up in the middle of the class and look at the shape and tell him content can tell
you Elian What is this?
This is what happened to the other and they're saying that this is what they learned from the syllabus Salat Allah Allah had that I challenge anyone who can establish that the Salafis Salah used to be Canadian Adam in front of their scholars,
even move at very all of these great scholars they used to be around shifting some interior and they have their own opinion. They disagree with him in many things but until the time he left the studio they are they were his students go into him and respected him because they know who is nowadays if I'm learning from him, you know the moment I start getting something tomorrow when I see him my head also isn't the same capacity as his even the salon was silence so London here's to start saying salaam to me first. That's why our knowledge doesn't have Baraka so please be very careful knowledge. Knowledge hasn't been hatched impatient, impatient, be motor while the Allah's want to
bring you up. If you're arrogant, Allah is going to bring you down.
If you're mutawa Allah is for to kill in the knowledge that's one of the obstacles insha Allah and close with it because this man kept on show me that that
one of these things is arrogance. Yeah, arrogance. Arrogance is one of the greatest obstacles that is depriving you from learning.
Allah subhanaw taala says sleeve one is to eliminate a component of the Divine.
Ullswater says he is going to take away that knowledge in his eyes from anyone who is multiconductor an arrogant person will never learn.
That's why as a student of knowledge, you have to tell yourself I am balibo Hekima somebody who is looking for wisdom and will take it from anymore.
Trust me, my dear brothers and sisters, I learned from kids, kids kids,
as long as what they say is correct, and I don't know it, it preserved it.
One of the scholars said I go to the muddiness sometimes and I sit down and that model is the one who's speaking about those ahaadeeth He says, I memorize this hadith before his father was born.
But I will be sitting in front of him attentively as if this is the first time I hear this.
That's why the learning what to cook them never.
That's why sometimes when my students telling me this is wrong, I can video to two days such shouted if I don't fail them in my exams.
You will not I'm telling you facts we have some people like that. I know a person who failed the exam because of this
That's an absolute injustice. Allah we live with some scholars.
If you find them physical fighting, when it comes to the exams, they give you your right. We will eliminate that time.
And anyone who calls himself a scholar, I don't call these people scholars. Anyone who is arrogant either economists call him Yeah, he is literally but the true knowledge he missed, because knowledge is the knowledge that gives you what to call for last monitor that makes you humble. If knowledge is making you arrogant, just because I've become a PhD holder now and I'm a doctor when I pass it before you say Cincinatti we're friends, you know, we shake hands. But now when I see him, my face changes. He has to come and shake my hand and I don't
You can see him properly.
When you have people like this
who is the best person in this dunya and the beast, the most business person in the history, Rasul Allah,
in order sunnah doesn't rest.
As a prophet, even his heart doesn't see, the eyes can close but the heart
remember, he just came back home to rest, you know, after struggling doing anything because at home also when he comes back, there is no residency and the wake up and pray to last winter for 23456 hours.
Until the time you You pity him or you see him pray. He said he just appreciating what I must want. They gave him
that so so let's Allah so He just came back, he lied down to sleep, and you really came, he said, Yo, Hamid
and he told him that I must want to want you to go to something and he that immediately this man Rasulullah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam, he has time to stay with children and make jokes with them and say Sarah would everything to everyone. They were mentioned that Ursula Salah is someone you meet him he repeatedly says the salaam to you before you say Serato
he has time.
Nowadays, because I'm us calling us color. We didn't have time to see salon. Others we do have people even to apply the salon villa.
What is the justification? We're busy.
That's why we remain in the way we are. So as a student of knowledge, I really advise you to stay away from arrogance. Be humble. And take knowledge from everyone who has the knowledge to pass that he has Tobia. You remember I kept on mentioning tarbiyah tarbiyah, right? Because it's really necessary not to learn from everyone. Learn from somebody who has Tobia not just the knowledge of Allah, you will end up getting deviated and becoming the wrongdoer in the community, and becoming a problem problem in the community. We have people who are fighting everyone in the community, due to our lack of tambien you need to sit next to somebody who is not just giving you the knowledge that
he gives you as an agent nowadays, it's not about passing the knowledge to others you can get the knowledge from any any place we need to be there. So be humble by their brothers and sisters if you want to Allah's wanting to beat you up and to grant you everything. And the last one is is a higher K even close my list. Happy now.
The last one is higher.
or higher. This is Chinese and modesty is good in all circumstances. Rasul Allah sama said Al higher or higher and Kulu is good in all circumstances, circumstances except when you're seeking knowledge,
seeking knowledge, you should keep the higher,
you know, any pocket?
Of course, you maintain the other. But you ask the scholars about everything and you contribute to the class, when they want to ask them to live our best, how did you get this intensive amount of knowledge? It says because I have a very attentive heart.
Please do take this, I know you will not. You know, I know you will not but I really advise you take this, please, whenever you go to the budget sale, this thing closed.
For like immediate resistance is taken the most valuable thing you know, you're looking for closing and keep it aside. You open it if you're taking note through it.
I don't see any justification we have for communicating with other students for one year in the emergency.
As a great loss, a three degree last, put it aside. Because we have time for it. When you go out, you're going to have the vast majority of your time, do whatever you want, then open it up when you come to these these type of places to seek the knowledge closed.
Because he cannot convince me that you are going to be paid attention and be attentive and at the same time you're while you're on your device. So you want to
learn how to be patient. I know that Muslims were the most impatient in this. I think there is you know in a statistical analysis somebody was making concerning this and Muslim countries are on the top.
The top and you go out everyone is busy with this. This one is up to you to decide how you want to live your life. But when it comes to the Magellan center, my dear brothers and sisters when you get into the classroom and put your phone in the silent, I will advise you to shut it off shut it down. Because when it is silent, you still have your brain thinking about maybe somebody message you or not. But if it is off, you need to do some process to switch it on that one insha Allah will make you more lazy and because he already lazy so you don't want to go through that. And sha Allah it will help you to stick to the most so the library has set. My heart is very attentive and better
And also it says what is Sonic Cebu? And I have a tongue that is always asking.
Yeah, we live in a class because we are not paying attention. That's why we didn't have that much of questions. So you discuss you ask questions. So we don't have that we don't we don't mean that China's to be in existence in the classroom should be very active. And remember this, whatever you discuss with
the teacher, whoever is teaching in the class, this is the best way to advice and most likely you will never forget that.
Trust me, my dear brothers, sisters, I still remember many of the discussions we have in the classroom invested in our first degree, many of the discussions sometimes I'll be asked a question, I reflect upon the debate you know, and the discussion with the lecturer in the class based on that and because that one is a strong one of the strongest way for you to keep that which you, you memorize but if you sleep in the classes, you get busy with something else, and always the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala but it is taking the grid taking the greater blessing we got from Allah smart Allah which is which has the knowledge. So don't be shy in asking questions. When we look at
quoting the statement of the scholars, that says later Allah Muthana most to him while I was talking to people will never learn a shy person and an arrogant person.
I shall Allah and he said, she said, may Allah show mercy upon the sisters in the tyre the sisters in the term of the Prophet Salah Salem those sisters have answered the sisters that belongs to them
she said the reason why I'm praising them she said I really love them so much because
let me aquarium never wondered how hypo Milan yet
shyness never deprive them to learn their religion.
That's why I say you just have to be serious but ask about anything you need to know to scholars are mostly came to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said he also Allah in Allah Allah is tiny minute hack. She said Yara so Allah Allah subhanaw taala does not feel shy of saying the truth.
She is making this introduction because she's going to ask the question which people might not be able to ask. And she's asking who for Sula
is a maybe somebody right? She's asking me. So she said he also Allah, Allah subhanaw taala doesn't feel feel shy of
saying the truth
for Hala Island multimeter who doesn't even hear tell him that? She said the others will Allah is it obligatory upon a woman when she sees the wet dream. He has a wet rain is it obligatory upon her to take Ghosal also when she sees that
one of the wives of the person or someone was there she could
she couldn't talk she's she was having you know, this surprise. What kind of question is this? And she's asking about, you know, so she said in Hola Hola, esta hammerlock. So the promise Allah someone he heard the question he answered are also very straightforward as he said, Yes. Either he arrived cinema is a yes if she sees the one time the way the male also sees the water she also has to take also from Digenova
when she left, that wife of the prophets Allah Salah also have a question from that question. She said yes to Allah. Is it even possible for this to happen? She's still surprised why this sister is coming to ask this question to soloists and also she says hula is it even possible for sister to have this right so let's say last Sunday? He said yes for me an idea CONUS Shabbat if you say that the woman she doesn't have a water
how is it possible that sometimes we see the child being like copy of who? The mother sometimes the Father will be surprised whereby the child took everything from the mother is like a forgot him completely.
Why is that? Because it's a combination of above although although the essence is coming from the male side, but it's a combination of both.
So I have some other obstacles here one of them is man's in existence.
Yeah, so he told me my time is up.
Allah subhanaw taala grant you are good and Dopey and help and aid aid. Each and every one of us to be amongst the community of knowledge and the last one to make us reliable scholars and student of knowledge that the Obama summit summit will be proud of having in no definitive meeting Kofi Subhana Colombo be humbucker shadowline land as the property will be later Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
Sinhala Lakeisha soccerloco Really appreciate you sharing all this wisdom with us.
So, may Allah may Allah make us among those who inherit from the inheritance of the messengers and Allah protect us from being arrogant and you know, lose out in terms of seeking knowledge. And also before times real times we hope that you know we can actually gain something and leave something behind. So just for now we inshallah we'll have a break
