hamdulillah hamdulillah we are back.

00:01:09--> 00:01:12

I don't know when was the last time we had a lesson

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

or hamdulillah The point is we come back and this is not

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

your last one how to I grant you success in life.

00:01:22--> 00:01:25

So inshallah I as I said, we will keep on going

00:01:28--> 00:01:53

with this book, until we see the last part of ad for lost power tele decreed that we will live to see the last part of it in this place, it will be very difficult. But inshallah I'm gonna live some kind of war to Allah to see the last part of it to be a great blessing and a pleasure to see the moment that we can reach the completion of this mission in Sharla.

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

As usual, I think

00:01:59--> 00:02:01

it will be good

00:02:02--> 00:02:08

and important to remind myself and my brothers about principles to be

00:02:10--> 00:02:14

utilized when seeking the knowledge of Islam.

00:02:16--> 00:02:22

It is the best attitude and the best manner and the best thing you do to please Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:02:24--> 00:02:27

seeking knowledge and Elmo color code when

00:02:28--> 00:02:30

it comes before everything.

00:02:31--> 00:02:40

And the scholars mentioned that knowledge amongst all of the sunon that you do to please the last one what Allah is the best seeking the knowledge is

00:02:41--> 00:02:48

far greater than even Jihad according to many, many scholars. And if you look at Islam Islam

00:02:49--> 00:02:55

is based on knowledge because whatever last month they asked you to do you have to know exactly and precisely how to do it.

00:02:57--> 00:03:03

This is what knowledge is all about. And the more you know about lost power, the more you feel lost power.

00:03:04--> 00:03:17

So I just want you to feel the importance and also to get ready for that knowledge especially some acknowledged does not give you a little bit of it. Unless if you give it all of you

00:03:18--> 00:03:32

lost power. Tell us a These are my Canon mineralium few Caf fellow Lana forum in Kolkata Minho if atonia Takahashi de Waal, Yun Zhu, como esta Raja La la la Mia.

00:03:34--> 00:03:58

These are the people who are going for jihad. And the professor last summer said video to send me Islam and he had he said at the peak of Islam, the highest part of Islam is Yeah, because this is the defense system that you preserve the deen with a lot smaller tasks, these are so narrow soon I will be in it once and Mr. Herman katabami zanella kumana sudokus panzanella

00:03:59--> 00:04:18

peaceful manners are the best or the best approach in everything. But sometimes you need harshness, that's why we have the salon. We have the leaders we have the authority to force the criminals to bow for the Sharia to bring one bring to bring that which bring good to the community.

00:04:19--> 00:05:00

So these are the people who are participating in this, but they're a lot smarter said it is inappropriate and acceptable islamically for everyone to this is fast to move to depart when the professor lavalieres on participating in jihad. There has to be group if you people will go and stop themselves with the knowledge and convey the message properly to us. Last Maha Jessie's in the Maya la manera de la jolla, the real person who feels the last mile which are amongst the slaves of Allah or this call this Holly estherville, Edina Ala Moana Wanda in LA Alamo. How can you compare that which has the knowledge to that which doesn't have anything so that is

00:05:00--> 00:05:33

nuloom comparison between a knowledgeable person and somebody who is otherwise, when you look at the Sunnah of the Prophet Allah semi you find the same application also the same recommendation, the same focus, the same emphasis on the importance of the knowledge. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I said, When Salah cattolica el tiempo de almansa han Allahu Allahu taala can illusion. When you set up water, the house looking for the knowledge, the last one is luck, you're working on the path of the gender. And the last motto will make paradise easy for you.

00:05:34--> 00:05:50

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in many, many places, but only one? Well, I saw in many places, the profits are so awesome. So I'll conclude with this statement of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam which says, My European law could be higher and if obtained

00:05:51--> 00:05:54

manually, the law will be higher and your activity

00:05:55--> 00:06:41

is a lot smarter ones hoods for a person, Allah subhanaw taala will keep will grant him his blessings. And a greater portion of knowledge in Islam is a sign of love. If Allah loves you, you will be among those people who know you will be among those knowledgeable people you will be among the scholars or less student of knowledge. One of the scholars said, this shows that if a person is not among the student of knowledge, how to be a lot smarter did not want good for this person is a loss not to be among the students, or not to be among the scholars at ginia Marina kumbhakarna nice Allahu alayhi wa sallam or Maroon mafia in navicular, la hermana. Everything in this life is cursed,

00:06:42--> 00:06:46

except the remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala. And whatsoever his colleagues connected to it

00:06:48--> 00:07:28

on the moon wa machale, or a student of knowledge, or a knowledgeable person or a student of knowledge, these are the four entities that are not curious about last time. And therefore Muslim children stay away from one of them, he or not among these, make sure that you are among the other group. So the best party you should join. These are the parties of the scholars, the scholars, they are wonderful ambia they are the inheritance and the heirs of the prophets and the you know the prophets of Allah, they do not leave their harmala Dena, why did they leave for the people knowledge. So knowledge is the thing that leads a person to success as one of the policies and earn

00:07:28--> 00:08:19

more Pharaoh beighton last slo while januvia demo beta as you will currently it says knowledge raises up and elevate the ranking over people who have no foundation in society. They are the weak in society, nobody pays attention to them. But if you have one of them, who is going to get the knowledge this house will be elevated will be raised up by Allah subhanaw taala. And you will see the knowledge bringing down I mean, bringing down the house of what of honor, unknowability when they ask you, how do we use this in the community? I remember how long Rashid they said, one of the great scholars of Islam gets into a rocker or one of the cities that is under the control of the

00:08:19--> 00:08:24

Muslims. So the Khalifa was there. So he was there, in the

00:08:25--> 00:08:32

balcony up there. So he saw the the shift coming and 1000s of people in the community. They're coming to the ship.

00:08:33--> 00:08:41

He's agreed, I guess, in a bollock was somebody like the only one of the scholars visit the city and almost everyone the whole city comes out.

00:08:43--> 00:08:49

So he was watching from far distant from up there. So his slave in the house, she said,

00:08:50--> 00:08:55

Yeah, ameerul momineen or whatever she called him. She said Who is this?

00:08:56--> 00:09:20

He said, this is so and so on. So one of the scholars of Islam he visited us. You know what she said in the comment? He said, to be honest with you, this is the real kingdom, not what you ate. Because he never got to a place and people come like that. If you ever want to see the kingdom, look at this is the real real nobility and kingdom, not what you have.

00:09:21--> 00:09:29

So this is what knowledge does, it brings you up in the eyes of the people and in the hereafter also, you will be among the best.

00:09:31--> 00:09:50

Selling really urge you as I always do, open eyes and to get ready to learn to do this job for the Amalfi staff. We really need somebody to stand as Moravec somebody who can defend the religion of Allah smarthub with digital ban.

00:09:51--> 00:09:54

Most of the things that we do nowadays, I mean,

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

I think I'm not exaggerating. If I say one of the the fears

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

Enemy that we're having nowadays is the enemy within ourselves for the Muslims. You have those people who claim to be Muslims, but they criticize Islam from inside, nothing can stop them except knowledge shouldn't have knowledge. They bring their shadow hearts

00:10:18--> 00:10:38

to deceive the believers. And this is actually the idea to make sure that they put doubt in you, too I have a student now if I have a student of knowledge who can stand and dismantle every single thing they are bringing it up so excellent. Because will lie in that which is given to a hammer sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a solution for everything

00:10:39--> 00:10:47

whatsoever shubha somebody brings to fight Islam there is an answer for that in the book of Allah subhanaw taala and the sooner Mohammed Salah honey

00:10:49--> 00:11:03

Well, I actually naked in affiliate in legit and I can be happy what I sent of Sera, la smartasset. But books cannot do that. Go and put a person who is a deviate deviated person in the library

00:11:04--> 00:11:22

mctavish bahariya, one of the biggest muckety muck that that that ever exists, get it go and put somebody who is in a wrong way in that place and come and take him out after one year, he will never change, you might get confused more. But one student of knowledge can do the job for you.

00:11:23--> 00:11:35

So it's the greatest job is to be like that, and it remains like this. And it will remain like like this until the day of judgment. Knowledge is the greatest, greatest thing you do to please our last March on our knees.

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

So I urge you to wake up until the patient knowledge needs a lot for you to get admitted.

00:11:45--> 00:11:51

So I give you certain principles that I wish you guys will open.

00:11:52--> 00:11:54

Recall your hearts for them to get inside.

00:11:55--> 00:12:38

There are conditions that you have to fulfill when you are seeking knowledge. The first one is class, you have to do to our last mile challenge. And by the way, my brother sisters in class is the only two that can help you to keep that which you memorize, whatsoever you do for last mile, which means I'm telling you it won't be easy for you to get away from you. Alas but I will keep it for you. So it's the most powerful tool that you can utilize in order to keep that which are memorizing, allowing easy affairs, whereas others found it very difficult for them to make it but yours will be easy class meaning you're doing it not for dunya you're doing it for last mahalo Tada. But it was

00:12:38--> 00:13:20

for the genuine benefits, it will be robot alike, it will be the one of the reason why you will fail in this life and in the Hereafter you will see the worse you can see the impact of rehab and seeking the knowledge for the sake of somebody else in the hadith of modern Java or sorry, while even me sufian or maharera the one that talks about the first group of people that are lost, but is going to take to help our Lutheran furnaces and disarm him now gentlemen, man who who are the these are the scholar and recite scholar was a recital and a rich person animoji

00:13:21--> 00:13:33

these are the people that are going to be taken to help first before everyone you can imagine all of them they are so noble in Islam, Israel is doing jihad, the sort of spreading the knowledge this man is doing this but why they go to help us.

00:13:34--> 00:14:04

brothers sisters, this is the inner consequence of doing things not for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala allows matter of bringing a knowledgeable person and remind him about his blessings upon him about the knowledge how much the last person granted him of his blessings of this knowledge. And then a last matter we'll ask him what did you do with what I gave you? He says yo la Karachi Coco Anwar Corrado he says yeah Allah I recited Quran for your sake and I read Quran to the people I talked people your book

00:14:05--> 00:14:16

and then our last night I will tell him what a holy Ramallah acre to allow us to hit you up line and the angels also tell him you're a lion. Again, it's in Mr. carracedo color palette.

00:14:17--> 00:14:35

You read the Quran so that somebody will say you are a nice an excellent reciter you are teaching knowledge you're talking so that people will say oh my Mashallah, what a knowledgeable person is this? worker P. People have already said that. So my moral behavior is one hour.

00:14:37--> 00:14:40

And then our last matter will ask the angel to take him to help.

00:14:42--> 00:14:50

So it's a great responsibility, and a great moment for a person to seek knowledge not for the sake of Alaska hotels.

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

Do it for last Mahalo to Allah. Remember that last month is going to call you back and ask you about the knowledge he granted to you. How do you learn it

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

What did you do for a while? So Alhamdulillah you can fix your knee, your intention at any moment, you will never be late in the eyes of Allah. So the first thing is effortless. The second thing get a chef, somebody to teach you, because without chef you will not move. You need somebody to guide you, you really need somebody to guide you to teach you how to you learn how to learn, you learn from his, from his Adam, from the way he does things from the way he understand things. You need those colors of Islam they're all like that. I remember the knuckle one chef NASA, he was saying the difference which will ask and chef and Sam interior and the chef assignment semirara bajo Allah

00:15:46--> 00:15:51

chef lasagna Jamia who who gave the thermea to him scholars came later.

00:15:53--> 00:15:58

So, he was saying but in our case scholars, the books completed

00:16:00--> 00:16:43

though they get because for them even getting book is not easy. But you hear one of them has 1000 shares, 100 shares, 1000 shares, they go everywhere looking for the sheath. And nowadays you can find somebody who will tell you no, we can do it without us call us we can get it. That's why the mistakes are a lot and you always go into the wrong direction. Because there are things which you need somebody to explain it to you even if they are written in a book. So, having a chef in learning is necessary, you must if you really want to succeed in knowledge, you must have a chef otherwise your knowledge will be doubtful.

00:16:44--> 00:16:48

doubtful will never be a certain certainty at all.

00:16:49--> 00:16:54

Likewise, one of the other you have to maintain is the summer patience

00:16:56--> 00:16:57

is the key to succeed in everything.

00:16:58--> 00:17:10

You have a chef you want to travel even go to plays sometimes you come to the class, the dance is not that interesting and all these things that we have nowadays which the past did not have it.

00:17:12--> 00:17:49

They go and submit scholars and take everything from from them. And that's the attitude from the knowledge. They don't give suggestion to the scholars about what they do. Now we do almost everywhere you go, if the lesson is not interesting, right? So be patient with the scholars and patient with the learning also revising books is not easy. Again it go into the scholars chasing them wherever they are is not easy. being patient with the chef also is not easy. Like sometimes we get the attitudes of the scholars you will be surprised why did you do that?

00:17:50--> 00:18:04

We are told that some of them used to have dogs in their house to change the way the student of knowledge you know that there was a great had this woman she used to have a dog in his house. One of the greatest callers in Hades is Mr. Ramesh

00:18:06--> 00:18:11

good idea but he used to be very harsh with the student not easy for you to get Hadees from him.

00:18:12--> 00:18:38

Why did you in that to deprive you from the Hadith of the Prophet Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, but to teach soon and also other and to let them understand the benefits and the importance of the thing because whatsoever you fight for each edit, you valued so much. The poet says, woman Malacca Villa de Bihari have been ohana Allah He will be ready for mama Karbala, Villa

00:18:39--> 00:18:43

Hana Allah hideously motivated. If you if you have

00:18:44--> 00:19:29

been defeated the people without fighting you go to fight people to take their land. You don't fight them. When you reach the place, they just sit No need to fight just take it free of charge. If later somebody who is having a greater power than you comes and tells you to give give the country to me. What would you say? You have to fight? No. Because you got it easily. You will tell him Okay, take it. But if let's say at the first time you fought for you to get it. You lost a lot of armies from your side. At the end of the day after years of battles. You got it. If an army came which is stronger than you and decide to take it, would he give it to him? Never. He has to fight also to get

00:19:29--> 00:19:45

in the way you got it. Knowledge is always like that, whatsoever you get based on hardship most likely will never go away from you. Whatsoever comes easily, most likely to go out also easily.

00:19:46--> 00:19:59

That's why we have to be very very careful with this patience with the chef isn't necessarily your patient with his quota. your patience with his attitude and his manners are like we met scholars of this country.

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

Era they are very, very harsh. If we left them, we will lose

00:20:07--> 00:20:24

we will lose it. Sometimes you will see a person very big person in the world in terms of knowledge, you get it but then very harsh in terms of manners. He has good manners but in terms of dealing with students he harsh sometimes you don't understand.

00:20:25--> 00:20:31

But the idea is he Shirin Neshat on comes inside, otherwise he will deprive you from learning,

00:20:32--> 00:20:44

you're going to stay with him temporarily right. So, patience is needed, respect your shares and then be patient with with him this is what they mentioned as a key to succeeding learning.

00:20:45--> 00:20:50

And the last two things, after the patience is the

00:20:51--> 00:20:55

what I call it a gradual process in learning

00:20:56--> 00:21:14

to diverge taking things gradually, you have a lot of knowledge that you want to master, you want to be an expert in them, they have to go slowly, slowly, one after another if you want to succeed one after another if you really want to succeed,

00:21:15--> 00:21:22

you get it they one of our scholars, recited a bait for us which I see remember he says,

00:21:23--> 00:21:28

For feature audiophile illumine manraja into a man is turbo column Yakuza.

00:21:29--> 00:21:36

four feet are audiophile only four feet oficina de filler lumen manraja intest into Amman, estaba calima Pooja

00:21:38--> 00:21:58

Terada illume is to keep on putting knowledge after another he get it at once that strong Is it a scholars advises to the not to do that. Jose Ming cool min had tattooed kena who format and tequila daily take every knowledge until you become expert then move to the second one

00:21:59--> 00:22:18

is that clear? This one your chef should guide you to this how to do there are analogies which you can go and take this one this one moment and the other one and the other one. And at the end of the day, you have to come and revise them separately fix this first and then go to the other one again is a gradual process you take them inside, what is the benefit of

00:22:20--> 00:22:34

the benefit of that is whatsoever you put inside will never go out quickly, it will go out also gradually before it is completely out of you, you will realize that something you are missing something you will bring it back.

00:22:36--> 00:22:43

But if you put it inside, all together at once they said Mother Hello Hello, Harajuku

00:22:44--> 00:22:51

when they it goes inside you at once when it goes out also it goes out completely, then you have to do it, again.

00:22:53--> 00:23:04

Is that clear? patients in this manner is necessary. So sometimes you're impatient will lead you to get bored and not be able to succeed in the future.

00:23:06--> 00:23:11

So I think in sha Allah is very, very clear. What I said. So lastly is

00:23:14--> 00:23:19

on what I call commitment, or they will himer high determination and commitment.

00:23:21--> 00:23:40

Get it high determination and commitment. You really need this to be committed to you said no skipping classes, whatever the case may be, don't submit to sickness, injuries, weaknesses, wellness, sleep, no, Train yourself

00:23:41--> 00:23:45

how to sleep literally and utilize the vast majority of your time

00:23:47--> 00:23:51

and make it like this one of the impossible in your life to skip a class.

00:23:54--> 00:23:54

Honestly speaking,

00:23:56--> 00:23:57

the vast majority

00:23:59--> 00:24:03

of our cities, today classes could be avoided.

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

But negligence began with a lot of things being accumulated until you become so much in such a way. I just have to skip some of the important classes to focus on these. So Time management is important. When you manage your time properly,

00:24:24--> 00:24:35

I can guarantee you you will have every in every day, extra amount of time, which is sufficiently enough for you to succeed in learning.

00:24:36--> 00:24:39

everyday. It's about time management. I'm telling you you have

00:24:40--> 00:24:43

time, you do have a time and the time is a lot.

00:24:44--> 00:24:49

But the problem we have is how to manage that time properly. That's a problem.

00:24:50--> 00:24:57

So you in the university, I will say to you You do have time, especially those of you who are coming from outside

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

to get it even the local

00:25:00--> 00:25:29

Cause people who are from here, but you will left your family members you come to study in these days. So just like those people who are coming from outside, the benefit of this is you are far away from the servants to family, they're away from you. Nobody will disturb you know, being committed with the family getting a new job that can distract you, nobody will interfere, you can study in the way you want. So your time is technically yours.

00:25:30--> 00:26:01

How is it possible that you tell me that 24 hours is not enough for you? I'm telling you this, you sleep, you play games, you have a lot of things, you sit with the brothers and talk, you get a child between you and the good friend of yours. All of these times, if you put them all together, you categorize them properly, you can divide them accordingly. Take them give the priority to those who deserve the priority. I'm telling you will be left with a lot of time which you don't know how, what to do with it.

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

Is that clear? You should have a time for sleep.

00:26:06--> 00:26:10

Even if you don't specify but you have how much you should sleep in a day.

00:26:12--> 00:26:19

The knowledge that you learned in denier, after the classes you don't need more than one to two hours. You don't need that.

00:26:20--> 00:26:27

You don't need more than one to two hours. Let's say we take the average person who sleeps eight hours in a day.

00:26:29--> 00:26:36

Get it? color and the lesson today, let's see another eight hours. How many classes you have in it in a day, usually?

00:26:38--> 00:26:42

two classes in a day, how much they take each class 10 hours

00:26:44--> 00:26:48

to every class two hours, right? So four hours, let's make it five hours.

00:26:49--> 00:26:54

In a day, you have five hours. Five plus eight. How many hours?

00:26:56--> 00:27:13

32 hours for a digit? If you're a smart student because we didn't revise right? I don't know about Nottingham. But I what I know in the universities in the world, even jamat. Islamia in Medina, people revise their lessons. The last night before the exams.

00:27:14--> 00:27:35

But maybe you guys are so special. Allahu Allah. Right. You know, it's all but hugely, but let's say your special universe, you need two hours every day for your lessons to revise them. I give them two hours. Although I do believe that less than that is more than enough. But let's say two hours. That's 15 hours, right? How much left?

00:27:37--> 00:27:47

These are the most important hours right? Sleeping hour, this one you cannot skip it. Okay, how much time you need for eating? Two ounces

00:27:48--> 00:28:01

to eat? It doesn't make you like that right? Two hours. But honestly speaking, I don't think you need more than one hour, right? One output 16 hours? How much left? Eight hours, right? These eight hours? What do you do with it?

00:28:04--> 00:28:17

This is in every place. I'm telling you the names in the last minute. And then you will come and see the class is empty. Why students are busy. They have a lot of assignments. When did they get the assignment since the beginning of the year, some of them right.

00:28:19--> 00:28:39

So I'm just saying this, I just want you to be very smart in terms of time management, because time is one of the most important thing a person should focus and pay attention on. Alas, fantasies will also they say I want to save it. He loved tahu yokkao. And this is the only thing that when it's passed, you can't bring it back.

00:28:40--> 00:28:44

When it's passed, you cannot bring it back. And your life is going

00:28:45--> 00:28:53

the wisest person is somebody who utilize every single second of his life. I don't mean in a bar that

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

What happened? Everyone stopped his lessons and they got lower than them and they stop they don't stop

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

Anything and they still
