Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
May the blessings and salutations of Allah subhanho wa Taala be amongst every single one of you? What a remarkable night. The key to power, a meticulous topic that's going to cover something of utmost importance, that every single one of us here is living in such a fast paced world, not understanding which culture which norm which taboo and what exactly things are happening, why exactly things are happening. In a day where confrontations in a day in conflict of knowledge, conflict of ideas, conflict of here's, there's bits and bobs, not really understanding the true essence of what and why something is happening. This conflict is causing chaos. And Islam is a
religion of peace. And therefore, such a renaissance is very much important to be addressed to youth just like us.
The addressing journey is made by a person who has started off his career as a school headmaster in a primary school.
It took him all the way to Saudi Arabia, where he made his bachelor's degree in Sharia and Islamic Studies
point that on to move forward with a Post Graduate Diploma in Islamic law and Islamic political science. Not only that the journey has moved on and pursued towards Malaysia
to pursue his Master's and PhD in Sharia and civil laws and the International Islamic University in Malaysia.
Our speaker does not need any further introduction as he used to visit this university before most of us were born.
Therefore, without further ado, I would be honored and humbled and on the on behalf of the Islamic Society, love to welcome Shaykh Ibrahim no pleasure.

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. So,
first of all, your last word you for granting me such an opportunity to be with you from time to time. And when I lost my hotel, I guide abdomen and forgive him.
I didn't know I had been coming to this university before he was born. So
why do I need to be introduced again, next time I will drop you.
Anyway, the Alaskan hotel accept each and every one of us and forgive all of our sins.
As he had mentioned that this is the most important topic that I do believe that Muslims should be aware of, especially in this contemporary era,
we have been crying out looking for somebody who can continue with the message of those rights. He has predecessors, I was given a lecture last week on the same
day, also the same time.
Something similar to this. So I did not manage to convey the message properly due to the time give it was about 20 minutes. So I don't know what to say in in those 20 minutes. So when your issue comes, I sort of handle at least I can convey the message here is a light Allah, if you're not stingy enough to get me off before I finish, but inshallah won't take that much of your time. So in that lecture,
one of the professors in the university and in fact he was the previous rector of
he mentioned something which drew my attention and reminded me about what we have been talking about looking for somebody to handle the situation, but unfortunately we couldn't get he was asking
In saying that, unfortunately, if you look at the,
the list of the scholars who, whose name has been mentioned up to date,
the list has not yet been updated.
It's still those scholars right. So, what happened to the replacement Is there anyone to replace them in the same bethought the same knowledge and what happened to the world. So I was there pondering as is true with to remember that I will keep on remembering them. But there has to be somebody to continue with, with the mission, right? To get it, because books will never convey them convey the message in a way should be done. It needs somebody to put them into practice and action and give the proper interpretation. And there is nobody to do that, except a serious student of knowledge.
A lot of claims have been made from our students, whenever you ask a new contact, who are you? He will tell me a student of knowledge. Or what does that mean? Get it? If you look at the situation and the way people are seeking the knowledge you compared with the past,
you will not know what to say. And by Allah does the reason why. And by the way, I kept on pressing this.
I don't want to mess up your technology.
You put me here so if I touch something
is wrong, you're responsible. I press this, no problem, right, I can play with the cable.
So what I'm trying to say is if you compare the past with the present, you see a lot of differences in the current discrepancies. Get it. It's like, we're totally different. And by Allah to me, that the reason why the knowledge we have
has no Baraka in it, and also is very shallow. We're still similar on the surface, we never reached the root look behind not very long ago, get it there was a man who was on the roads to hatch
it picks up a pen and a paper he got he kept on writing before he finished the hedge and came back home. He has written and compiled five volumes, get it on the way to hatch and then apologize to the Muslim community that unfortunately I do not have time to write better than this because I'm on the way to hatch nowadays who is capable of doing this research, who is that person that can pick up a pen and take a paper and write one volume of a book we know nothing except what copy and paste sometimes even how to paste also we know we copied and paste the same thing right? They said usually you copy and paraphrase fix it put it make you look like yours but unfortunately we don't know that.
That's why in an article
you find this found is I mean I found it I mean interesting and amazing. Sometimes when I read some articles, you see the references the pages that contain the references, there are more than that what are they called the Main article is of the man wrote 10 pages and he has 20 pages of references.
Every single line you find two three references sometimes I will be asking myself then what is your work then?
What a waste your time. So I don't call it a new book or article been written by somebody. But this is just a compilation of ideas taken from others. The past they do that. They get it they do the like the way we're doing nowadays but in a different way. they memorize. They understand they can sit down and put it because believe it or not brothers and sisters knowledge is that which is in your heart. That's why mama Shafi said
me my hi fi my mom yet
it says suddenly our botany we are Allahu la botanist and up in Kentucky so Kay cannon and Murphy soupy when it comes to Phil Beatty kind of film it is in my knowledge is with me. Wherever I go, it goes with me.
If you find me at home, I can talk without referring to the books because it is here inside the chest. I don't put it in the boxes in the library library shelves. No. He said I have it here inside. He said if I go to the market and you asked me some photos, I guarantee you that the answer to that. I don't need to have any references. Who's like that these days? Very few.
So I like actually to begin with this to wake you up. We are living in a time that we really need sincere and serious people who feel lost power to Allah and they can convey the message
Hopefully, you know we are having to transfer the Tafseer of Quran last Tuesday right? Okay in that place Allah subhanaw taala says what? He talked to the Jews and the Christian, he told them later on we'll have that truth that is given to you don't hide it. Again that's a covenant because they came before the Omar Mohammed Salah Salem. So alas Mahalo to Allah had promised with them that they have to convey the message properly without any deficiency. First, they shouldn't hide it. And secondly, they shouldn't mix the truth with the falsehood. Not only the Christian and a Jew, Muslim is also supposed to do that. No hiding the truth, and also conveying the message in the way should be
conveyed conveyed without mixing it with the falsehood.
Look at the situation of the Muslim communities nowadays.
You have a lot of so called callers. But unfortunately, the fear of a lost martyr is not there. So the grants the first one in the wrong way, a lot a lot. In such a way a person will call you on and ask you by Allah receive a call from somebody, the first thing he told me he says, I asked you about Allah to be sincere and tell me the truth concerning this matter. What exactly should be there? I understand why is he asking me in that way because now you don't know whom to trust.
To get idea because of the junior people are selling that Junior. And the worst among the two is the scholar when he get corrupt. It was called corrupt. He is worse than the leader who is corrupt. At the Labour Party says what I've said Dena lol Morocco was also in war. Is there anyone who destroys the religion of a lot smarter either than the mulu the kings, and also those evils callers Is there anyone who corrupted religion, whatever religion you see, I'm telling go read the history and religion, you will see the one who is behind corrupting the religion, they are either the scholars or the politicians who are wrong towards not all of them, those who went in the wrong direction.
But if you look at it to which one is more dangerous, when he gets corrupted, the one that is more dangerous is in this corner when they're in the wrong way. Because a leader, a king, whoever he is, he can change your heart, traverse through the color change your heart, they can beat you. They can take you to jail. We have scholars who got beat in almost all of those false collars they got into a trial yet, they got to try and some of them were jailed for many years. Some of them were beaten mama mama mama shabby, they were beaten by those leaders who are with up just because they default with them in an opinion.
They beat them somebody says if you take the amount of the beaten that was placed on Imam Ahmed, and he used it on an elephant, it will die.
He handle never gave up. Mr. Malik, they broke his hand. All because of the current change which is in the heart. They remain steadfast. until the time they admit a lot smarter. This is what we hope that lost mortality with them in that manner isn't light Allah, they remain steadfast, they do not change their religion did not change the Akita, the machine that stands, you get it so they can handle the punishments, the physical punishment. But I'm telling you, my brain says this, you can handle this preacher, one. Because when you get corrupted internally, you get it, the conclusion will be so bad in such a way you will go to a place for eternity, you will not come out of it. And
you know what I'm talking about. Because when you go back to a lost battle with that manner, with an evil and filthy, filthy and dirty heart, you're going to where you're going to the place where nobody wants to go until when Allah Allah Who does that the leader will not lead you to that usually. But this colon says that as color can come when you get caught up. You see this one?
black and white, right? Let's say that completely white, as cola can make it to you black. And he will convince you that this is black.
Do you get an idea? That's why it's very unjust with because they deal with the heart to take your email, and you can go and debate others. They don't we have people nowadays, even before actually after days, who get it who tell people that they have certain knowledge in which nobody knows. And they can see what people cannot see. And they managed to convince people that you know, some of them in the middle of Ramadan, everyone is fasting, they can eat whatever they want to eat. But they managed to convince people that they are not eating that is something else. And people believe in that. Yeah. Can you see the brother eating in Ramadan and you tell them she'll stop eating? The
student will tell you no, no, no, no, no. It appears to your eyes that he's eating but in reality he is not eating.
He managed to convince convince those people. So that's the day
of this color, he get it when they get corrupt. I'm just saying this to my brother and sisters to wikia that will lie we really need people to wake up to understand the responsibility of the oma to know that those innocent people in the street, they need somebody to guide them to the right way.
We have in almost every system that is developed by some of the people nowadays is distorted, the principles is there. But unfortunately, the way we apply it is wrong. And the the people put that trust on those people they think whatever they say is correct. So we need somebody who can come sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and can put the oma in the right direction
are we supposed to do is to seek the knowledge.
I'm not here to define knowledge, I will never do that. But I will just share with you about the importance of knowledge and some of the idea that a person should acquire
when he is what he calls seeking the knowledge.
Knowledge is very important,
actually human being without knowledge are useless. And that was the reference that last Mahal Rotella sent to you from the one when he created Adam and he favored Adam over the angels because of what knowledge we all know that not only that animals when they have knowledge, they will become a valuable item.
One of the world's creatures, according to our mention is a dog, a dog when he gets a knowledge that is respected islamically if you kill that dog, you have to pay the compensation for that.
A bird went to Hood Hood. I'm sorry a Hood Hood which is a bird went to sudama la sala and Suleiman promised to punish this bird. But he protected himself from that punishment of Solomon with what with knowledge. So the man when he invites monkeys to come to him, which inshallah I will close my speech with. He told her that we are given the knowledge, we are more superior than you because of the knowledge that our last module has given us. Does the reason why I lost my heart Allah says this importance, or my Canon minuman and em fuel calf falola never I mean, cool if you're cutting in homepod ever too late for COVID de Leandro como la Jara him
one of the peak of the Islamic religion.
One of the pillars is a different system which we call jihad,
which is distorted nowadays. But let's restrict ourselves to the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when they do the reward, which is mainly based on what defense to protect yourself. Every government on Earth, the nations before Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Are they all have the same defense system. The prophets Allah Silva also had it like anybody else, because you can live conveying the message looking for I mean, calling people upon the truth. While you are defenseless, you must have something to protect your existence, because Evil will never let you succeed. You have to protect your size with strong fortresses. That was the thing that the
professor last summer, I mean, did and also he told the believers that this is one of the best and to be done in order to preserve the religion of Allah. Our Prophet was not a troublemaker. He never caused the trouble, and he never looked for trouble. Like I mean, instead the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam I said, Latimer Nola Carla, do this the message to be sent to anyone who criticizes Islam for being a violent religion.
Get it prophets, Allah Azza wa Taala companions. Don't even be happy to meet your enemy. Don't ask Allah for it. Don't be happy to meet your enemy. He says sir aloha live here always asked a lot smarter to grant you peace.
But when it is eminent that you have to defend the very existence of a religion, then you have to be ferocious.
Again, it's you have to be really serious to make sure that the religions succeed. Because no life without religion, believe it or not, no life without religion. Only with the influence of the religion people could be controlled properly and that religion has to be linked to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this great job, this great deal in Islam which we call jihad, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa somos informed by Allah because each and every one of the believers is willing to participate during time of the Prophet Allah Salah. They know they could lose their life but they know what last month to provide for them was far greater. He got it. But then a last month I told
them Omar cannon minion alien Pharaoh calf, it is inappropriate for the believers to depart.
All of them to depart to the jihad is that there has to be some people who stay behind Leanna for
COVID so that they can master the religion, which they will use to enlighten those people behind them. You can see the virtue of the knowledge, right? They cannot move for that all of them there has to be some people who will stay behind to go and study religion so that they can convey the message to others. That's the reason why the professor Allahu Allah Himself said, manually the law will be higher on you forget it. If Allah smart Allah wants Good for you, it will let you have the in depth of understanding of the religion of Allah. That's
knowledge is all about understanding.
When we talk about knowledge, we talking about the Islamic knowledge, religious knowledge, that's what comes first into the discussion. The dunya knowledge is also beneficial. And if you do that, for the sake of a lot smarter, you will be rewarded.
It's not to say that the dunya knowledge is useless. No, Islam never said that. And in fact, Mr. Chavez said, when they asked him Can a Muslim be treated by a non Muslim, Imam Shafi got angry, he said, What happened to the Muslim they left half of their religion to others? Is that what happened to them? Islam comes as a religion that invites people to study almost everything that is beneficial.
So we have religious knowledge, and we have other knowledge, both are important. But when Islam mentioned these virtues of knowledge, the first knowledge that should be involved is one that links you to Alaska hotel and increase your righteousness and make you a better person.
But as I said, so that you will not misunderstand me every knowledge that will benefit the community. As long as it doesn't contradict with your religion, this knowledge also has a reward if you do it sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala it's also important the last one to like crunchy code. So I guess this is more than enough there are a lot to be said concerning the importance of of the of the knowledge so let's move to the other and then make a conclusion to see in sha Allah or we can generate from this short speech BS in light Allah.
I will talk about patience, knowledge, and I will talk about commitment in knowledge. And I will talk about perseverance in knowledge inshallah. These three things I will mentioned that is light Allah and I guess there will be more than enough. The first thing you need as an adult to get to learn I wish I can run Why do you keep me up drama titled stay in one place? And like I do.
The first thing is sincerity.
What is sincerity, sincerity means you do it for last mahalo tala. Please, I hope you will listen to this properly. Sincerity means to do it for Allah subhanaw taala. Right. I told some of you last time that that's the best thing to be done, if you are a lot smarter to get involved in your education. And he will put barricades and He will bless you, at the end of the day, you will make an achievement in that which you are intended.
This is essential. And also it helps you to keep the knowledge you will never go away.
What you do to please Allah, Allah will help you to keep it, it will not go away from you easily.
To get it. And as I told some of you, you don't need to intend the certificate you are getting.
You don't need to do that. Because as a Muslim, you're supposed to be a hard working person. Somebody who's very serious. The Prophet salallahu alaihe, Salam I said, Allah really loves that whenever one of you did something, what have you done something he perfected? And you know, so you are seeking the knowledge of denier a lot smarter wants you to make it perfect.
If you can take my advice, don't you ever be in the second place in the university?
That's not the attitude of a good Muslim. It shouldn't be the second place in the second place in the universe. That doesn't mean you should be lower than that. I mean, you should go up. Don't you ever let somebody to be seen as I mean, the best person in the university should be that one.
Not to be jealous of what other people are getting, but you work hard to achieve that status.
with no doubt, each and every one of you. I'm told that is not easy for a person to get first class in Nottingham University. That was the old system I don't know. But now Is it the same?
I touched the injury right.
That's that's what he told me that in this university is not easy to get. Second Class. First Class. Keep it aside. This is for some
But anyway, if I, if I study here, why not? Well, I see this, why not? And I'm not just praising you to be happy. But I do believe each and every one of you is capable of getting an A star in this university and in the university that is even harder than this.
But unfortunately, none of you is using that capability and ability last quarter grant us out of laziness, and wrong faith and belief.
When I say faith and beliefs, I'm not talking about the faith, that eulogy? No, I'm talking about things that you put in your mind that I cannot do. That's too difficult. That's too difficult. Anthony whenever you tell yourself something is difficult, you're going to find it like that.
That's why you have to tell yourself you know, it's so difficult but just tell yourself Yes, I am capable of doing and I'm telling you will be somebody in that place. But if no matter how much ready you are, but if you were to tell yourself I cannot make the achievement This is for so and so and so person, Allah Subhana Allah says to the prophets, Allah Allah and selama Anna Eindhoven Abdi p, you think allow not let you go there last month I will leave you with expectation you will remain in the way you are. That's why that is a line of poetry mentioned by Madonna be
please memorize his poetry. And remember it all the time. He said, Well, I'm
fear you will be nasty. Ivan konexial. Pardon me. He said, I have never seen in my life, a deficiency. I've never seen a deficiency that is worse than the deficiency of somebody who is capable of elevating himself to the highest ranking. But unfortunately, he doesn't do that.
When I look at our students, I see them inside this portray that bilities there. But unfortunately, they have this belief that we can't we can't it's too much too much. ambition is not too much. Whatever you are learning, I'm not belittling what you learn here. But whatever you learn in this universities, a university is very little
is too little. But unfortunately, we lost strategy in in learning, yet it's we have this mismanagement of time. That's why we suffered a lot. Get it we suffer a lot. So
the first thing is a class get a lot smarter involved in the system, do it for the sake of Allah, the scholar said, whatever you are learning, the first thing that should be in your mind is I am studying this discipline, whether it is engineering, or it is business or whatever you're studying, the first thing that shouldn't be in your mind, I just want to remove the ignorance in myself and also have my community to remove the ignorance from each and every one of them. I want to please my Lord, by doing all of these and the last module will be in the system, then inshallah you will find it easy and you will not forget it easily.
To get an idea, no need to intend the certificate because the university will give you the certificate by default, they will never contact you and ask you what was your intention when you are studying.
Whether you are Mukhlas you are not smokeless. They will not give you unless if you have their class university will never do that. lets you be the most corrupt person on earth. When you have when you finish, by law, they have to give you the certificate right or wrong. So it is something that will come whether you intended or you don't intended. What does that mean? It means you should focus on that which will benefit you which will make the road to study easy for you. That's the first thing that is second thing is commitment and hard working, I will just put them all together. And in that insha Allah I will take you to a journey to show you how
I mean, how the prophets of Allah subhanaw taala themselves, they were very interested in increasing their knowledge. A prophet should be the most knowledgeable person in that area. But look at the interest in learning. And my brother and sisters, you will never learn something if you don't have interest rate I shared with you last time I know I don't know whether you remember or not. That one of our professors says nobody that's in Medina, he said nobody succeed in teaching them English language except to one scholar.
All of the scholars who went to the Islamic University of Medina de field why because nobody has interested in that. You will never learn if you don't like what you're learning. You know, I'm telling you the truth, right? So how did that person succeed? He said for the first few weeks, he did not teach English language.
He focus on how to put the interest in the student of the language. He made them love the language and then he he started. So he told us whatever you get from me
It was because of that method used by that chef. So interest has to be there.
Get it and you have to be committed to that which you have interested in. know the importance of that and be committed to that. And be patient
Alhamdulillah nowadays from your room, you can just open your smart phones.
You can check and search every head if you want to get an idea how many holidays you can get from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. 1000s of them, they are at your hand. All that you have to do just to open and check and get whatever you want.
Is it a blessing?
Yes, is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala you know, the people of the past they don't have this job will will Abdullah I want you to feel it actually. And also to understand how alas Martin is burning our excuses. javin Abdullah to get one Hadith from the live in Oles, he has to travel for a month just to take one Hadith. There is no any other way for him to get it if he doesn't do that. So he moves from Medina to shower to get one single ladies. If you're not impressed with that, look at this person. I don't even know how to describe him. But Kevin immaculate. He travelled some scholars said 4000 kilometres.
Was he using an aeroplane? No, they have to do it manually. Just to meet one of the scholars was called Mr. Mohammed and look at how a lot smarter has tested him. By the time he reached the place of Imam Ahmed. He found the Mr. Muhammad been in a strong clash with the with the leaders and the authority. They stopped him from preaching.
Imagine you penetrated 4000 kilometers to reach a person when you meet him that which you want to take from him he kind of gave it to you.
This is how much and many of them I'm telling you during those journeys, they lost their life.
I remember one of them a moment generally the one who completed the three karate of the book of Allah subhanaw taala, based on the other book of sheltowee. He completed the three Romanian cara, it was a very small book, get it? The shot to be the main one is around 1300 lines of poetry. This one is very limited, I guess it is around 200 Plus, but you can memorize the big one three times more than the small one. How did he write it? He wrote it on the way to hedge also, he said I was stuffed by the robots and the thieves. He said well like if not because of the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala I will definitely be killed. They took almost everything from our takushi and will keep to the Okta
Allah, He said they took everything I have, the only thing they do not take is my soul. But look at the scholars, he says nothing was in his mind except how to complete this book that here he has begun with.
So those who are the scholars, they do it like that. So these are all scholars, they want to profit. Look at this prophet of Allah smart Allah He is also upon the same track before them musala his salah
and inshallah I will close with his,
or the convention and the structure all of these lessons that I intended to musalla He said, I was given a speech. And it was a very powerful speech. You know, last month I granted him this eloquence he when he speaks he and his brother, how to honor his love. So most our speaking, so it was a very powerful and interesting speech. So one of the audience, he got it people from the audience, he told him, he said,
So, do you think? Do you think that is somebody who knows better than you?
What do you think the answer should be? Yes or no? Yes. Because at least if you don't know somebody on Earth, Allah subhanaw taala as their
ticket idea because he did not say amongst the human beings he said do you think that is somebody who knows better than you? masala is Salam said no. Immediately Allah smarter revealed an angel to him to tell him Bala Abdullah, fiddle, be much better Bahrain. Allah said yes, our slave in the place of
much more Bahrain, the place where the two rivers on the seas are meeting each other. You get it, he said our brother, our we have our slave the Alesis our slave there is more knowledgeable than you. So most asset yabuki facility, look at the interest in learning. If you are to be honest, and to look at Moosa and his stages, he was the only other minerals right?
If you put human beings all together in one place, Musa alayhis salaam is number three. You have bahamasair Allahu alayhi wa sallam, Ibraheem alehissalaam you have Musashi Salah.
So if you're talking about knowledge, knowledge you have from Musashi Salaam should be so great. But when the last words I told him, that is somebody who knows better than you, what is the first thing that comes Allah came out of masala Salah? He said, Yeah, Allah kafer said,
How can I reach that person
and will lie My brother's student of knowledge you cannot like that he will never learn in Islamic University, I'm not exaggerating the knowledge during our time now the university has changed a lot in our time is so tough,
very difficult to pass an examination is not easy. You have to get 60 out of 100 does the passing Mark if you get 59.99999999 and to learn of China, you have to repeat that
you have to repeat that course.
It was like that to get idea.
So this is how we, we study in the university. I asked one of my professors I told him I want to do pursue my press guide with he told me something which I still benefit from that I don't handle, I try to practice that before I left. He said Ibrahim, if you know that you're going to study in the university alone, I really advise you to go back to your country and and invite people to his farm and teach people don't stay here. I mean, the knowledge they give that before when you graduate from that university in your certificate, the right shape,
get it checked, so on so because if you go through the syllabus, you know that definitely if a person is serious, after you graduate, you become a scholar from the university and think you can get into some other university but this is who they are.
But still this person was telling us He said if you are going to just study in the university, he said he told me is a waste of time.
Yes, go back. He said but if you know that you will not focus on the university alone you will go and chase the scholars wherever they are, and get the knowledge from them the real one, he said then do whatever possible. You are possibilities you can to make sure you stay
that's how it is this the quality relax, get a journey to seeking the knowledge. Almost all the scholars have encountered these difficulties. You get it I wish you except joke are going to give you the job but I'm afraid that you will kill me if I finish this lecture. So just leave it in Sharma but all of them went to seek the knowledge and they have interest in it. One of the strangest thing I ever heard about one of the scholars I can't remember who he was, but they said he studied in a in he reached the country, a country he was studying the knowledge, Mashallah he was enjoying the scholarship there. People are very knowledgeable, right? So he was learning he was learning he
left his wife for many years.
She wrote a letter to him of drama. Can you meet this out?
So he was that learning from the scholars, they said after long periods A
long time ago, a long time then his wife sent a letter to him.
When he got a letter from his wife,
he got scared.
He said maybe she might be invited me to come as quickly as possible. So why did he do?
Keep the letter hidden or read? He said, I'm afraid I will see something that will make me leave this country and I don't want to do that. Now.
I don't say imitation but I just
want you to understand who they are. So he put the letter aside. After a few years, he said let me see what this what this woman is talking about. Okay, this is my words, right? Of course he respect but he said let me see what is she talking about? Then when he opened the letter? For sure. She was asking him to come back as quickly as possible because there is an issue that he has interfere very quickly.
He said okay, maybe there are ceiling that trouble, then you go back.
On the way back, he got an old woman selling things on the road. Right sometimes these people they just knew the basics, right? But then he heard this old woman was was arguing with somebody, she said check so and so on. So if you look at this ayah properly, actually supposed to be interpreted like that. She was talking about this and that. And the guy says, these kind of people also they're very knowledgeable and somebody is inviting me to leave this country. He told the letter and go back to the place.
This is who they are. I don't say imitate him, right. If I'm in the same position, I will go and check the thing and then go back again. But this is this is who they are. Do you get ideas? So strong interest has to be there for you to learn. Do you get that? So back to musala Salah Moses said he said what era Keifa Seville in a car Allah How can I reach that person?
The light must set. There is nobody who knows the Quran more than me.
If I know somebody who has something better than me in the book of Allah and Tableau will Mati and this is within the reach of a camel. He said I would definitely go to that person I will never relax until I reach.
That's interesting learning. So most asset cases submitted in a Yala How can I reach you? Allah says, you go to the place of much more behind the sign for you to recognize the man. Take a fish. Okay, are you with me? Shall I take a fish Occoquan and put in a plastic bag and then go
the time you lost the fish you have to go back to the place where you lost the fish. The man is the most that took a fish together with his student.
Not you should have known. They left. The richer place. They were tied is left in that place. In the night. They were sleeping the middle of the night. Usually noon woke up and he saw that cooked fish going out of the plastic penetrating the sea. When know how the he managed to watch but officials coming out and he know the patient officials that it goes out and run away. So after that, he went back to sleep. Get it? In the morning when they woke up they left he forgot to invoke Moser
when Moosa became hungry, he told you should have known
where his food he said oh well I forgot yesterday we lost it. How then he explained to him most asset okay that means we should go back to that the place the man is there.
It's so they went when they when they found an old man this is headed
as soon as they meet him was acid as Solomonic
he will say the word one of the article Salah was like surprised in this place somebody saying Salah. I said I don't know who was living with him but it looks like nobody says Salam in that place. So the first time he heard Salaam he was surprised. He says in this place somebody saying Salam is one equals Salah. He said Who are you? He said Moosa, so most of our money is right. He said, Yes. He said, welcome. How can I help you? Look at how Allah smart Allah taught Moses a great lesson. He sent him to a person that Muslims are even qualified to be his students. That's why when the person when Moosa when he told me, how can I help you? Moses said to him, I'm here so that you
can teach me that which Allah subhanaw taala taught you
fiddle to him. He says you can't.
And he said we're k fetters virol MLM to hit v. Hoorah. And is a great lesson also wishes about that, that I go deep to get it in terms of benefit to explain to you how much lessons we can take from this word workiva test bureau lm lm to hit the Cobra.
If you learn about something, he'll be more patient with that thing. Get it is the key to live and to succeed, and to maintain the friendship and brotherhood and sisterhood among the Muslim brothers and sisters and everyone. You choose to be your friend without pay without knowledge. You will never live with him peacefully. That's what he does is k photosphere lm lm t to be a cobra, how can you be patient about something that you don't even know how it works?
Do you get idea a lot of clashes in the marital life? The cause was what lack of knowledge? I don't mean knowledge of Quran and Sunnah. No lack of clear understanding about the partner you live in with. I quoted through the statement of one of the scholars who married he said the first day I met my wife. Again, it's in some countries, they told me that they even give you discount. The first week you marry you have a discount, you don't come to the Muslim for prayer. When they see you outside, they asked you what happened?
Didn't you marry?
The good idea? So the shack said that first night he married a smart person he she forces him to to give a speech. He ended up saying in that hamdulillah. And nowadays, sometimes even the tour card that allows what Allah wants you to do, you can do that. But the shake and of saying in that hamdulillah him who want to say no until that. Why did he do that? Because she told him I don't know you and you don't know me. So let's sit down and talk about ourselves. I really want to know what exactly you want and what exactly then like so that I will not be doing things thinking that you love them. But at the end of the day, I find out that you hate them. And this is actually what is
going on. He said I lived with that woman for 20 years. He said well I never saw something wrong in our life.
Who can claim that nowadays?
Almost every second, right? They have a class nowadays. Why was that? Because we don't
understand each other to get idea a lot smarter get it to true. So Heather said, What gave it to him to hit the houbara? How can you be patient about something that he didn't know? What exactly is that?
Most I insist that I can learn from from you. So he told him, if you want to learn from me, I have a
I have a condition. Moses said what is the condition? He said, Don't question the about what you see.
And here comes the test on what on Patience, patience with the scholars. The mama Shafi says said you will never learn as long as you're impatient.
And I wish
drama will give me permission to talk a lot. Otherwise I will elaborate more on patience because is what we are lacking nowadays.
I go study let me get him busy to cause him forget that the time is you. I go to him to study from of drama.
After a few days, I will be thinking that okay, fellas, nowadays I become what is called, they get I put myself at the same level as him. This is who we are nowadays. That's what we never learned. One of the scholars one of the tabs. I mean, he always talk and criticize of the line was rude. I'm sorry, of the live in our bus. They said well, he regretted at the end of the day of the live and our bus was gone. And he lost the knowledge he got because of the live in a bus started putting restrictions on teaching him. That's why this collar said the key to succeed in learning you have to be very humble in the presence of your chef. Who does that nowadays, like only little get it you
have to be very humble and accept all of these have a word because sometimes some of the scholars, they're very hard and sometimes for no reason their heart. We had this caller who has a dog in his house. These dogs they are not for, for for what what to scare the thieves. And no, they're for the students of knowledge. When they come to his house, and he doesn't want it to come, he said the dogs together. So he was livid. He was staying in the house. And this group of student managed to get to come inside. When they reach him. They say Salaam he cried.
They asked him Sure. Why do you cry? He said mahtomedi Kenya and would have been rolled over and hand him.
The one that used to command people to do righteous did has that. I mean is that who is that person? Does a dog he's referring to the dog. That's mean that dog is that. This is how they get it. Get it? We went they used to say we went to get this but he sent dogs to chases away. To mindset. This is harshness, but I'm telling you sometimes they do that, to put a strong interest in the students get it so that they will understand the value of the knowledge or lie some of them they're very stingy. They don't give you one Hadees unless if you if you fight so much. They don't give you one single Hadith. I remember one of them. The student trapped him and he was blind. He does. He forgot the
road to his house. So he met some student they told him check where do you go? He said I'm looking for my house. I lost the track. They said we can take you to the house but you have to tell us
he said no problem. I will take you to that to that. I will tell you how to take me to the house. So they took him on the way they said check Don't forget your promise. He said choose one. Hades, by nature constitute two parts right? The mutton and the senate Senate is the chain and the machine is the text. They said he told them choose one.
He wants that senate or one button. Even this one Yaki they're helping you he says no you have to choose one.
I forgot what he gave them but they told him you are our Senate. So we don't need chain because you are the Senate for us. We need the method. They said he gave them the merchant that will never benefit them in their life.
Ticket idea so patience is necessary or like you will never learn unless if you're patient. Get it? I don't claim perfection but we try to apply some of these that's why we got Alhamdulillah a little from the knowledge that lost water grant those callers that we met in Medina, I told you last time, there was a shift my shift from your place of drama from Egypt, one of the best people I met in Quran so harsh if you're talking about harshness, you meet that person. You just say callous habits like the harshest person I met in the Quran. He asked me he told me Ibrahim Can I have a cup of water? Imagine in the presence of almost everyone in the mud of the province of La Silla, next to
the router where everyone is going. I was there reading, reading, reading, reading, and the man told me Can you get me a cup of water? I said how the Russia? I went I brought to him. You know, in my culture on an elderly person asked you to bring water you have to make it full. In his culture if you make it vote is like here's how
So I make it online. When I reach him, I gave it to him. He pointed on me.
Everyone was looking there sooner was making fun of me, my friends, of course. Well, it reached my heart.
I started putting restriction, yet it's making some distance between me and him, he realized that he mentioned something which is more painful actually, that the pouring of the water he told me, Ibrahim, what's wrong with you just because I did that, you decided to put a barrier between me it will lie that statement is heavier than the water that he poured.
I apologize to him. And we go ahead. To my knowledge, I am the second person you know, he is very great. This Are you are you this are all his student, they graduated from him, they come and read in the same place where we will read it. I am the first person that person gave me to ijazah. He never gave to my knowledge any person have the first one. And also one brother from Eritrea, we have another one also in the same place, he used to chases away because we have to come in group for you to learn. And unfortunately, Allah has tested me that the people who are in my group, they're at the age of my father.
One of them is the friend actually my father, so I can tell him come. So they mature, they have family and I don't have one. So they are busy, they don't come and every time I come to Shackleton were one of the partners. I don't have them, he would chase me away. Somebody was saying to me, how can you keep on coming, I told him brother, this person, if I, if I don't become patient, I will lose. Let me get the knowledge, I might not see him. And a few days ago, I was told that the man has passed away after teaching people for almost 60 years in the mercy of the professor lasala
you have to understand this concept, you're not going to live with a chef forever. And will lie if you become a humble, the chef will be free to give you everything and that what you should do patients and take everything that chef is saying nowadays, we are very selective. I used to knock on the head of the student in Nottingham University that they are very selective, you know that
very selective. And that's why we have the Brotherhood we have this strong connection. But this attitude that does not help us to in learning process. To get it student of knowledge usually takes everything with no selection.
We have learned that when you go to the chef, even if he's going to repeat that which you know from childhood, you just focus and listen, there's going to be some additional information that he's going to add. And this is knowledge, somebody says the reason why the reputation is is maintained because we want it to become a creed. A key that you remember from time to time.
That's why sometimes I will go to my scholars I sit down I will be like almost 99% of whatever he said I already know that either from him or from somebody else. But apart even I be a robot say sometimes I will sit down in front of a person who will be narrating Hadith to me. He said I memorize that Hadith which he is talking about before his grandfather is born. But I will be very attentive to him listening to him as if this is the first time I heard about that.
Who is doing that among the student of knowledge only little you get it apart minister, I'm sorry, sales manager where he used to write everything he heard from Abdullah him, even our boss, please do focus on all of these things inshallah, they will make you somebody be the light Allah in the future, if he pointed upon them. This era, he used to study under Abdullah Haman in a bus.
He used to bring a book to write down what he heard from up to live in a bus.
Believe it or not, he used to write everything that comes from up the line and bus.
The student who are with him, they used to laugh at him.
You know, he writes, if he is going to write everything, that exercise book will not be enough for one city. That's why he will bring the book he will write and make it full from cover when I say from cover means from the first page to the last. So now when it finished and underline must Oh, they're still talking about the knowledge. Oh, did you do he will write on his
what he called the hand right here right here anything that can accept rights and so that's why student usila What's wrong with you? He will write just to ignore whatever they say. If the hand finish there is no any other place you will look for his shoes and take off the shoes and right there.
But what happened in the in the future?
Go and read the biography don't take it from me. You see, they said when you touch up the light, when you touch the moon will say you will find him being an expert in this knowledge when he talks about his experts in this knowledge when he talked this you talk about this person who is experts in this knowledge. But when it comes to say even in debate, you will find him mastering almost all the disciplines
He used to be the leader of the tavern and almost everything, those people who used to laugh at him, they used to regrets. We wish we weren't doing the same thing as call us at Alamo cider or Cotabato, Idaho. He said knowledge is what like the prey when you go do hunting. You catch a rabbit? What would you do? Tell him Please wait here. He won't catch another one. Also Wait here, right? catch another one. Also wait here? Is that what he will do? No, if you catch the first one and let it go, you can second also run away. But when you catch the first one you tie, go to the second one you tie. He said knowledge is like that. You get the knowledge is like that, if you don't tie it, and
how do you tie it you tied with writing?
To Good idea. So patience is needed. And we just complete the story and make a conclusion and give a chance for question and answers in sha Allah.
So Moses said, I will be patient, figure to him. You have to be patient and do not ask me about anything you will see. Don't criticize the question. You have to be patient. And will lie about is so interesting that these days we don't have this respect, unfortunately. And that's the reason why To me, the Baraka in the knowledge we're having is very little or it doesn't exist at all.
Do you get it? There was a man called him Samia. You know who his students even Okay, feel a great scholar. Sometimes when you call them students, you will you will talk to yourself and say, am I even right to call them students, because they are the great scholars in Islam.
even look at the heavy abloom of late and miss the all of those Jabbar mountains of scholars, they were surrounding their chef until his death. They never call themselves teachers, or lecturers or scholars in the presence of the chef.
We like that. And they used to respect him and they used to be humble. They used to take everything that the man is saying whether they agree with him or did not but they take it from him. Do you get an idea? If they have question they asked him with humbleness. Nowadays, we have a student who will stand up in front of his chef and call him a liar. Did you hear about that? We have seen that if you don't know, set up in front of his shake and say to him, You are a liar. Why is that? Because the chef made a mistake.
This is not the attitude and the virtue of the Salafis. Allah. So patients seated, so he told him, don't ask me about anything. So I would just be very quick. On the way. The first thing that happened is they were about to cross the sea, right? Okay. They need a right. So the people who are having the boats, they recognize Heather, and they told them to come with us. So hidden Moosa they went,
they get inside the boat, the person that hated it,
get it he drill, he breaks some part of the boat. In this in a way what I will come in Moses, oh, that
he couldn't be patient. He wasn't with you. You intend to kill everyone hit the reset. Allah McCulloch Didn't we agree that you will not ask me? But how do you expect the man to keep quiet he is in the boat.
Get it and you're breaking it. And he tells him, of course he has to forget the promise. But this is what patience is all about. Moses should understand. That's why the professor last summer said, I wish most I was patient to see what will be the conclusion of that journey of this.
But unfortunately, the patience of most of us not that much. That's why he failed in the first one. And the second one comes which for sure Moosa will never be patient, because the boy is innocent, and he did kill the boy. Moses said, What did he do to you? and Heather has nothing to tell him except Didn't we agree that that you're not going to ask me about anything? So most I told him, he said, Okay, I understand that. But you also shouldn't do something that you know, I cannot keep quiet.
Do you get idea? So that's why he told him if I asked you again, that's mean he get bored. If you look at it properly, moussaka got bored, he wants to leave. But he wants to leave headed peacefully. That's why he said if I asked you again, he knows he's gonna ask. If I asked you again, then you can just expel me from you from your school.
So that what happened when they get into the city? Most I was not patient when the third event happened. And he told him, how can you help somebody who is not willing to support us? federal said, This is the ferok biannual bilac. So they were separated the province a lot so I said I wish most I was patient. There were a lot of lessons to be extracted from this. One of the scholars have said he has started more than 30 lessons from this page of story that allows for temporary about hidden
Mussa. All I need
is the interest in learning that we learned from Musashi Salaam, and also the what he called the commitment Moosa knows that he had something that is more beneficial to him, that living with the children of Israel there, and he wants to improve himself. That's where he encountered that, that journey looking for looking for hidden. So this is just to tell you that it wasn't the companions of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, or the people that came before them, that came after them, the people that came before them, also, they used to have this attitude. So as I said, my brothers and sisters, you need this principle for you to learn
philosophers, yelets, perseverance, patience, and commitment and a class, you have to show a strong interest in that which you learn, and you will be patient learning, get it, I do have a strategy for you to learn properly. Before I close, I will just shed light on what to do. For those people who are beginners, I know you will never listen. But I will say it in sha Allah, as you grow. Yeah, because I have been saying this. And then after a few years, when I asked, we're still in the same position, right? And knowledge needs strategy, he didn't just learn everything, get it, you have to have a strategy. And you have to follow that strategy. Get it, the first thing to be studied is the
book of Allah subhanaw taala. To learn it and to memorize, I really suggest for those of you who are serious, if you're a serious, please be serious from now, the first thing to be that is the book of Allah subhanaw taala.
Give yourself a year can take more than that. Get it within a year, you can finish within lightoller there are a lot of methods. Take a scholar in this university, I come to realize that there are people who can participate in teaching
and advice from them. They guide you on what to do. And don't you ever tell yourself I do not have a time. My brother and sisters, we do have a time. Yet it we do have a time? How much you take from the how much the university from you on the databases? How many hours everyday you spent in the university, learning the classrooms?
How many hours you spent in the in the classroom every day? Average the flowers, right? Let's say five hours I give you
Let's say five hours, you have 24 hours in a day, right? Five hours. If I take five hours, how much left? Please, let's be honest, I just want us to be honest to ourselves, right? Because we always say there is no time. I believe there is a time, right? more than four hours, right? Let's take five hours, we still have how many hours? 19 hours, right? Okay, how much time you spend to revise that wish you learned from your scholars?
Well, it's good to have honest people here.
Somebody told me we spent like one hour, two hours I say what are you talking about?
Because if you are to spend two hours every day to study that to revise that which he learned from us, call us in the classroom. Believe it or not my brothers and sisters, you will not be in a state of need of revising for the examination.
Get it? I will repeat my words and I'm responsible. Do that try if you fail, then come to me inshallah.
Well, you will, it will never happen be the light up every day. Let's say you are so smart. inshallah all of you are. But let's say you are very serious in your study every day. You specify two hours to revise that which you study from your lectures. every two hours. How much left? 17 right. Okay, I have 17 hours. How much you spend when you sleep?
This one also I know. Because I used to stay in this I used to be in this space after 12 one also sometimes when we go around you still see people as if they are celebrating right? That's the nature of all universities. They don't sleep at night. But let's say you are normal shala you are no shower.
I mean by no means he's leaving the night at night and you you wake up in the daytime right? There's been no but let's say you sleep at night.
How many hours you've spent
let's take eight hours. Right let's take a pause to be on the safe side. So how much left? 11 hours nine hours. Oh 11 nine okay nine. Okay. Okay nine hours right? How much how much time is spent when you when when you eat?
I think that's right.
That's right. Because there are some people you go you will sleep you will come back they are still in the canteen.
So I don't know what what exactly the
but three hours I think is,
is too much. Give me some, some discount.
One hour, right?
All the all the means two hours, let's say two hours I like this one, I say two hours.
You know, the scholar said a student of knowledge should be very quick into three things actually. But unfortunately, I forgot the third one, get it. I remember the two, the first in agent, the second one in working.
Because you have little time, get it, you have to manage your time properly, so they don't waste time on eating. But now the priority is given to us to food for us. Right. And this is also taking place even in the Islamic University. during our time listen to this before I move during our time, I'm telling you, if you are a guest in the university, you will be confused. They said somebody visited our university long ago. And then right after the Imam said Assalamu alaykum. People did it. without running. He ran with them also. They were running, he was running and then in the middle of the road, and then everyone stopped. He asked him what happened. They said we don't want the good
food to finish from the
get go. So let's take let's take let's take let's take two hours. But to make this beneficial, I really advise you to reduce the amount of food you eat. Get it? I know it's very difficult, but reduce. And one of the scholars said that actually bottleneck a bit parameter Samana for Jews who are highly variable cemani. He said, Don't you ever feel your stoma with food trying to become fat? You know, in some countries, they say they're proud of having big stone, right? Well, it is what they told me in some kind of without mentioning the name of the country, but they said people are proud of how much biggest us tomac right? But the scholar said, Don't be like that. They get it
because it affects your
memorization capacity, you will not be productive at all. So reduce the amount of the food you eat. But let's say you take two hours. How much left?
Seven hours, right? What do you do in those seven hours?
None of you plays football for seven hours. I know that I
get it. But I'm telling you sometimes we sit doing nothing. No dunia no arquilla no anything right? If I am to take from you and you can give me a chance to take from you from those seven, seven hours right? I just need from you for the Quran one hour every day.
Please be honest, just give me one hour every day. The remaining of the six hours do whatever you wish in them, but just one hour every day to memorize the Book of Allah smart Allah inshallah, I can guarantee you that within the period of a year, you can finish it,
do you get it? So we do have a time. So the first thing to be done is what Quran right after you are done with the Quran, then contact your scholars to guide you on that which comes afterwards. But the first thing should be the Quran, with our Quran, the keys that those the doors will be closed. Yet the key to every knowledge is the book of Allah, our test will start with that. I don't want to recommend anything because sometimes it distracts. I will just want to restrict your attention to the book of Allah subhanaw taala. And when I say focus on the book of Allah, I don't mean you shouldn't attend any lecture. But it should minimize anything that takes your attention that much
attend the lectures to increase your Eman some part of your knowledge but the focus should be on the book of Allah subhanaw taala because it has a time limit. Is that clear? So we are lost for our tele guidance to truth. Realize that my time is up. So I will stop here to give you a chance to ask questions because I believe they're more important than the speech itself. We had last month a lot of you your last quarter granted success and we are lost my hotel I make you serious in learning and we are lost Muhammad Allah graduates, people with a stars from Nottingham University in sha Allah see me? I mean, a salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
