Allah Ibrahim Allah Allah Ibrahima innaka, Hamid Majeed, my brothers and sisters in Islam as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
This morning in sha Allah, I'm going to interrupt
the series just to address a very important issue
that a lot of you have asked me in person and emailed me
regarding the ruling, regarding seeking
a position, voluntary position in a Muslim community,
how you should go about it
and how it is done.
Again, I'm not talking about individuals.
I'm talking about the view of the Sharia regarding the issue.
I'm gonna say, Allah said, the messenger said, I have nothing to do with it.
The verse that is
those who seek
positions in a Muslim state or a Muslim community,
for us, this is our little state
without laws that goes against the outside state,
in a Muslim country,
how can you go about acquiring
a voluntary position?
You want to serve the cause of Allah subhanho wa Taala? How can you go about doing this?
Should you ask it? Should you seek it?
Should you campaign for it?
questions that we should ask ourselves because sometimes
ignorance is our enemy.
True, a lot of the brothers do not know and this is the spirit of this lecture today, inshallah it just shedding light on things that we need to know. So that we will go about it, right.
there is in the Quran, that a lot of those who go about seeking these positions, or seeking these voluntary positions,
is the verse insert use of
they consider it
the basis on which you can actually offer your services.
What verse I'm talking about
wacol Malika toony de
esta His Holiness Si,
Salama kalama, who Kala Nakayama Dana McCune Ameen. Here it is Carla Gianni Allah has
in half even
after the king of Egypt investigated and found out that use of Elisa
was innocent of the allegations with the women.
And after he found out his brilliance, his knowledge
Once he had the vision, seven healthy cows being devoured by seven sick cows and seven green ears of corn being eaten away by seven dry ones, he was the one who given the interpretation to the king. And also he given him a practical plan in order to implement to save Egypt, from drought and from famine.
He decided to call him to himself. He said, I want him to be my attache now. My baton I want him to be my counsel.
And he immediately told him
in Nakayama Dana, today, you are for us McKean mean, trustworthy, and you are in a high ranking place.
Here's the verse where a lot of those who say we should go about seeking it, we should request it. Karla Gianni, Allah has a in early in the half Ilan Ali, Yusuf Ali Salam said, the king sent me over the store houses of the land, I am indeed God, indeed a safeguard or a trustworthy God God with knowledge.
In this verse, use if requested a position number one, number two, he braised himself.
He mentioned the attributes that qualify him to be in that position. And he mentioned two attributes one of them has to do with their character which is being trustworthy, honest, and the second the knowledge
in the half, and at the same time, has the knowledge of doing so.
The number one, there are two issues here to consider. I'm saying this because in our Sharia in our Deen a Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shuns those who seek voluntary position, and they go after it in an aggressive manner. And we'll explain
using this verse as an evidence
is not proper. And I'll explain why.
Just off the bat,
Egypt will What?
Catherine, they will work
Egypt at the time they used to worship
idols use it was the only
Muslim in the land. This is just to start with.
But here is a question that we asked ourselves
is the Sharia
of the previous nations?
Our Sharia as well.
What do I mean by that?
Stop stuff that happened in the previous nations before the coming of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam should be considered our Sharia
practices, rituals, laws that the Jews and the Christians apply. Should it be our Sharia should we apply to? I'm asking you
No. Yes. No. Yes. Okay.
That's a good start.
They are of three types.
Three types, the practices, the rituals
of the nations before us, they belong to three categories.
Category number one,
practices that they need
are rituals that they brats.
But in our Sharia, there is nothing that is straightforward, and saying should we apply or should we not?
It's for us.
vague. I'll give an example. An example will explain this.
Have you ever heard IRA
let me get the column fill man let the last three individuals spoke in the cradle is of pneumonia. And then he mentioned the story of joy.
of the story of
delights was a worshiper, somebody who worship Allah subhanaw taala 24
Seven in His sanctuary.
He spray all the time.
One day, his mother came,
and he called him. Dr. George calumny. Yeah, Dr. Calvin is out of
the yard right? His his His sanctuary was up there. Yeah. And he was so sincere that he used to apply for it with a rope. And he didn't want to be interrupted. I thought he would do the rope up so nobody, no communication.
So Darius was praying once his mother called upon him.
He was what?
He did not answer his mother.
This is a practice of a righteous person of Bani Israel.
Should we do the same thing?
Should we implement it?
Yes, no, no. Yes. It depends. Here it is, here it is independence.
That's where we have to have to be careful. Number one, why we said it depends.
Because there is no clear text in our Sharia in the Quran, or in the sooner that says Do or do not do.
So it's left to the HD hat of the schools. Here's how they they said it.
if you are praying mandatory salah and
your father or your mother called you, should you interrupt the salah and answer them or not? No, because those are two what
is the brain is answering your father and mother is a four What do you mean by mandatory obligatory now, you place you give priority to
Allah subhanaw taala but at the same time Do not make it work
and in peace ALLAH
So, this is once it comes to what mandatory Salah once it comes to voluntary Salah
Hmm What should you do?
You should break your Salah
if you know that your father and mother will be upset and angry at you, if you will not answer them.
But if you know that later on, you can go to them and tell them listen I was praying and they will not give you a hard time you should not interrupt your Salah.
So issue right here that looked upon using he had the practices of the previous nation, because we do not have clear text in regarding the issue
then you have to use your SD hat. So you say it depends.
So this is category number one.
rituals, practices laws of the previous nations that we do not have any text that says Do or do not do regarding it. Now we have to look at it as what is the heart You have to see what the schooler said about the issue.
Category number two
practices of the previous nations that our Sharia confirms it.
Yeah you have levina M and O you who believe quotevalet colloseum Canna katiba Allah Latina
publikum Strv sia mudo can I assume Wellman
that this the fasting is the fasting of the food he used to so fasting was mandatory upon the previous nations it became mandatory upon us because we have a text that says what implemented
boo boo boo is not something that is special for this oma by the way. The previous nations they used to make in the same howdy How did you write once they caught him?
His mother made against him that he will not die.
She came actually three days in a row and she called upon him and he kept praying he never answered her.
So she got upset. And she made this
I let them have
l movies that I will Miami's
that you not to die until
You see the faces of the prostitutes.
Later on a woman from Benny Israel came and basically accused him of adultery. So they caught him. And they brought him to the ruler.
And before they established the head on him the story he said to me do bring me some water. I would like to make will do. Andrei dwaraka so we'll do right here is a practice of work
for us. Yeah, you're Latina. amaroo either come to me la sala de la ciudad de como, El Mirage, Saku Li who is believe? Once you stand for the Salah, wash your hands, wash your faces, if
you know that. The lots lots.
casting lots is a practice of the previous nations. Are you familiar with the story of john Eunice la sala fussa hammer second, I mean, I'll
once he left his people and he got into a ship, and then the ship is about to
they have to throw somebody off the ship. And they cast lots three times and was big to
you. Sorry, Sarah. This is a practice of the previous niche. We have the story of Zachary and Maria
lahmacun tele de una Ayumi aku, Maria, Mama, quintella, idiocracy, moon, the heads of many Israel have to throw lots. In order to find out who is the caretaker of Maria in our Sharia.
We could apply the last Rasul Allah subhanaw taala that we explain on the Mondays and Thursdays, at the beginning of it, Ghana, Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Ada Harada
of carabiniers as well. Whenever the prophet of Salah would go out in an exhibition or in a battle, he would cast lots between his wives.
We have this hadith that we read every morning after talking about the Salah lava lamp,
or soften our
Illa yesterday more or less, if people know the virtue of calling the Adhan, and standing in the first line of the Salah, and they would grow over it. And they would settle their guru quarrelsome by casting lots, so it's in our Sharia. So this is category number two, something in the previous area. And in our Sharia there is something that says follow it. The last one
is something in the Sharia of the people of the book, but our Sharia came and
said no to it. So, we have something that is not straight.
We have to look at it something that is what
we do it and the third is totally no example.
In the story of us
she wahala who Sujatha
once the family of us have came from Egypt that came from
follow Philistine to Egypt.
They prostrate it to him.
The the will and a lot of the scholars say no it was the ruku at the nano was a frustration. It was allowed in the previous Sharia in the area of the previous nations to prostrate to someone else actually restrict.
But is it something that we do in our area?
No. Straightforward shut down the mouse Abdullah nabee Alpha Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sent Madame mahabubnagar measurable around the Allahu anhu. to Syria to shall we say Syria but the Sham means Jordan, Syria Palestine Lebanon This is what the Shia he sent him to share.
And over there, he saw that the people are prostrating to the priests.
They will go straight to the priests.
For cinematic legible, said Allah Rasulullah the Messenger of Allah should be the one that will proceed to Danny. He made his work
his HDR he thought that rasa Salah is worthy of this then these priests so once he returned from
a chef to Medina, as soon as he saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he proceeded to him.
So Salim looked at him and he said mahad I am What is this? Oh my god. Allah Allah. Allah. Allah Ito Yes, you do nearly as
That is Julia had an inland Illa
prostration should not be to anyone but to
one hour couldn't listen to this one but listen to it carefully now while according to me run a hadn't as Judy had in the amount of data and test utilizza
and if if I am to command if I don't go home and ask your wife to prostrate you know if if I do command someone to prostrate to someone else I would command the wife to go straight to her husband. But then also Salim said what if don't go home and anniversary to me know if
to me run if
is the issue that another example for this the the the people who actually justify having graveyards in the machines
are people who build the machine and around the graveyard. And once you tell them Yaki This is Hassan said What do you mean? Don't you read Soraka
wacol alladhina Allah,
Allah Emery him Lynette tacky, then Allah, him Machida, those who are empowered, they said we're gonna build the machine around what the people of the graveyard, the people have have the keys. Now, in our cheriya, we have something that says no to this.
And it has no chance of being abrogated whatsoever because it was one of the last statements that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made as he was leaving this world in the midst of that, he said, this
Lana La Jolla who dasara una and via a massage,
massage either in the unhealthy mandelic one in the unhealthy mandelic need Allah in the unhappy mandelic Allah.
Allah cursed the Jews and the Christians. They returned the graveyards of their profits, and their righteous people into places of worship. I am forbidding you from doing this? I forbid you from doing this. I forbid you from doing this three times.
So we have in our shediac
what abrogates the practices of the previous nations?
Now the issue that we have today,
in what category does it fall?
This is a practice of a previous nation. Was it for us as Muslims to apply practices of previous nations.
We have three categories.
Things that do not have a text that they elect us what to do
things that we have a text that directs us to do the same.
And things that we have a text to say, direct us not to do the same like them. Now, seek an opposition in a Muslim community or in a Muslim states. I'm not talking about being living in a Catholic and unbelieving country. I'm not talking about this, don't misunderstand me. What I'm talking about here is being a member of a Muslim community and you want to be a volunteer, you want to be in the head, you want to be an amine.
I'm not talking about going and applying a position or trying to get a position in the non Muslim environment. This is another issue. I'm not discussing this today. I'm discussing being in a Muslim country or in a Muslim community, and you want to go about becoming the Army
or whatever of the leadership of the community.
Now, in our Sharia, we have text that says do not ask for it. Do not seek it.
Do not campaign for it.
In the EU Sahih
al Bukhari and Muslim
Khalid Abu Musab Sri Ravi Allah Juan and Laney Minal Shireen,
two men from Al Azhar in history.
The Holla Holla Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allahu estec they entered into the
of the prophets of Salaam as he was using them is wack
and they made that request they said
one Lina Allah Bob the mail when laka ma
Can you give us some position in what you have? We want to be me yes
Rasul Allah Allah wa sallam right away he looked at me Musa
Who are those like
rasulillah one lady Botha will have Maggie Murphy and to see him I didn't know that they're gonna say this.
oma zero followed by the one who sent you the truth. I did not know that this was the intention.
Here is what the rasa salon said.
memorize this in one line, learn only
by Allah. We do not give that to someone who asked for it or seated.
In another word, we
were in one Akuma in demon tala.
And the one that I will be 100% sure that he will be trade is the one who is asking for it.
The one who said it is the one who would betrayed we're in a one a coma in the non Taliban.
So it's straight, straightforward. It's not open for what
interpretation is truthful.
Here it is in the Tucson
if you want these differences at the end, they'll give it to you. In the Tucson area. Hadith Abdul Rahman eveness Amara Raja lavonne
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yeah,
he told him Yeah, man. Oh, man, lettuce le Lima
Don't ask. Don't seek to be an MS. In NACA in CELTA. latwon haha.
Because if you ask for it, if you seek it, you will not be held.
You will not be held. And here's Abra man is a companion of the prophet SAW Selim, somebody who lives we have another Hadith Hadith, the family owned business Muslim,
the founder in the bathroom that means
the main evidence, not mere Have you found that is a hadith that is Yanni kills the issue.
even do a Buddha as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Yeah Rasool Allah O Messenger of Allah, Allah testimony. Why didn't you give me a position without a ministry? inara become enemies
Rasul Allah says touch his shoulder like this.
In Aqaba, if
you are weak,
and it's an Amana
an in a different direction. It will be what disgrace and regretful pneus for those who do not want fulfillment in life 11 Haha, happy happy. Ha. We're Adana IE accept those who take it with the intention of fulfilling it, and they will do their best to do it. So here's what
not to do. We have a practical example
that I believe I've been talking to you about it.
After the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
and satisfied many side and the room of genocide.
When al unser convened, they are trying to decide who should be what
the mean of the Muslims
say now what are the 11 took his hand
and in the other hand, our way that Ravi Allahu Jamia, and he arrived there, and he said, Yeah, I shall answer Oh Anza national O'Meara Tamura, we are the Amara and you are the ministers.
Give that lecture to
One of those
there is consensus there in the oma that Abu Bakr Casa de is the follower is the one who is to be the leader of the Muslims after his death
clear evidence. When the Rasul Allah was dying he said Maru aback carrying value Sally vaness
command our workers to lead the people in the Salah, and indication that he is the meal. Another hottie. A woman came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asking him certain questions. She said, Yeah Rasulullah if I come back and I do not find you, who should I ask?
What did he say?
I will work and if I do not find our work
yet a worker so they
did not stand out there and he said, mee mee mee mee mee, mee mee almost all
of it, but that generation is away the new worker is the one over new see, for them, they they took it
for them they understood
the heaviness of that responsibility is not something that is you're honored with no Allah
kulu camera and all of you are custodian and all of you in the day of judgment will be asked what you pleased responsible for
we're big settled Fatima Rasul Allah Allah wa sallam said
the other issue here
and we close with this inshallah
you placing yourself
You really praising yourself, aren't you?
If you're coming out Delancey mee mee mee mee
You're telling everybody that you're What?
You're the best.
And this is something that we are forbidden to do in Islam.
And I'm Tara Illa de una de Manila who yuzaki Masha
Allah Allah Hill Kavita
coo and full circle who
do not praise yourselves
in it, if you do this, you are really praising yourself you're placing yourself up and that is why Rasul Allah Allah Sallam said do not push yourself to be in the head of the Salah because someone else may be qualified This is if the Imam is not the regular Imam like if there is a spraying and we don't know who it is, do not push yourself, have people introduce you
have people do what introduce you
also sallallahu Sallam
regarding those who brings people
in who would
be aware of what praising
yourselves or someone who praises you as well.
Someone who comes and praises you in a manner and the Buhari A man came to say North madam not a fan of the lawn in the presence of that MLS word and he started breathing signals Madam Na fan? What did he do?
He took sand dirt, and he started
throwing it in the face of this person. Setting off man asked him What are you doing? He said Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to do so. He said to
the Hina bit to rob
throw sand and dirt in the faces of those who praise others.
But the issue is you could praise people if you know that praising them will not drive them to be what
they learned this isn't the Buhari said Abu Bakr in Ceduna. Casa de Donna
Abu Bakr is our say our master and he freed our master
Who's he talking about? The law. So if you know the person is not going to be driven by
arrogance, because he's receiving too much praise, then you can go ahead and briefly, but don't stand out there and say Poor him regarding the person.
Also, you could talk about yourself
in a very brief manner, specially if you see your rights being eaten by people.
Yes, Deputy Mayor, Robert Wiley, once the, the the people started talking about him, he said in brief words, who stood against the Buddha
who mobilize the people to do that you have?
the community from this, he's free said, he said certain things he praised in a way himself. But you have to do it briefly. So what is the solution? In a way now I collapsed the whole thing, right? We cannot have leaders anymore. What is the solution?
What is the solution?
Is the table of knowledge in the community and those who are in authority?
Again, I'm not trying to apply anything here. I'm explaining the view of the Sharia. Regarding the issue.
I'm not saying this is what is going to happen or I'm not saying any of that. No, some of you understand what I'm talking about.
I want to make this clear, and disclaiming anything that you make out of this lecture. It's
pure knowledge, just for you to know the proper way in Islam, for things to happen, that those who are heavily while at
the table of knowledge, the people who are in charge with recommend,
who should be there,
but you should not seek it.
You should not campaign for it. You should not be pushy about it.
Because Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, we do not give it to those who ask it.
And if you seek it, and if you die for it,
you will not be helped, you will not be supported.
But if it comes to you,
tries in your side, rest assured that Allah will help you. Rest assured that Allah will help you.
Allah will give you the Esma So Sam

There are etiquettes and how to help those who are in authority.
Lily Lily, the owner of this
just to let you know the school does have its own
consensus, it is hard
to define those who are in authority, even if they are oppressors
How can you can avoid the man who
is not my view
because it causes a lot of fitna
because if there is any man in the community
that the people are I'm not talking about myself, listen, not me.
Allah and Allah, I'm not talking about myself and Allah is my witness.
If there is any man in the community and there is another one who is coming to start his membership in the side,
this person to be killed.
I'm not asking you to kill anybody now.
Why? Because he's gonna What? Kidnap, chaos in the community, chaos in the community of believers. And when there is fitna The eyes are what?
yajima this issue got the companions
law was standing in the battlefield in Iraq to the gentleman.
And he's saying By Allah,
we recited this verse, what dako fifth netilat to Steven leadin of Allah.
By Allah, we thought this verse was revealed in people after us. We did not think that this is about us. The person sort of will unfurl and be aware of a fitna that will not only harm those who caused it allows addressing the community that if there is a fitness somewhere, the whole community has to stand in its face because this fitna will get to you.
Don't you think that the fitna will stay with those who caused it? No, it will.
But Taku fear a fitna that will affect the whole community. The whole community must stand in the face of this fitna because it will affect the whole community. What does that even
mean? Come hasa pal have no idea
who's standing in the battlefield and he's saying will lie. I thought this verse was revealed about evil after us. They are the companions of the Prophet.
And they got taken out
by the fitna who should be the Armenian who should be the mama who should be this or who should be that.
So be aware of fitna
be aware of this.
One of the best things that you can do
When there is a fitna somewhere Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam said, the person who's sitting down is better than the person who is standing. The person who's standing is better than the person who's walking,
sitting in the fitness standing in the fitness during the same fitna between the companions sided Nabeel pass. We alone
