Bismillah Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Bucha mursaleen Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam doesn't even consider Kathira and NaVi read at all of the Allahu Anhu

00:00:16--> 00:00:39

summit are also nice and Allah it he was sending me a whole man hate to come and who for instance, who was about to come up to me and who mustered out for in a helicopter the enemy cavalry come to Mercer Ely him work dilla for whom Allah Gambia

00:00:41--> 00:00:44

Muslim Raha Buhari

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

there is another narration for the Saudis that gives a deeper understanding of it meaning

00:00:55--> 00:00:55

which

00:00:58--> 00:01:43

where it says that Surah Surah Selim O'Hara, the Buddha or the Lord who narrated data Surah Surah, Selim addressed us and said, oh people Hajj has been made obligatory upon you. So, perform the hajj, a man asked is that every year jasola solar solar cell have remained silent. The man repeated his question three times, then the solar cell have said if I had said yes, then it would have become obligatory on you, it would have become further on you to make Hajj every year and you will not have been able to do that. So do not ask me about that which I have left unspecified. For very the nation's before you were destroyed by this excessive questioning and argue wanting an argumentation

00:01:43--> 00:01:56

argue and arguing with the prophets. If I order you with something, then do as much of it as you are able to do and if I forbid you from something, then keep away from it.

00:01:58--> 00:02:08

Now in both these ratios, as well as I said on command just to avoid what he has forbid, and to follow what he has ordered us to do according to the best of our ability.

00:02:09--> 00:02:17

And he also tells us to avoid to follow His guidance without asking too many questions and to pay attention to the types of questions we ask.

00:02:18--> 00:02:40

Now, he said for example, what I have forbidden for you avoid. So, we have to follow this command all the time. In all situations, this order must be followed unless it is a dire circumstances such as when one is starving and there is no food except for some meat that was not properly slaughtered, once the Viet in conditions like that.

00:02:42--> 00:02:50

It is permissible to to eat that but in other incarnations other than that of this kind of dire necessity that

00:02:51--> 00:02:55

we have, we must avoid whatever is forbidden.

00:02:57--> 00:03:17

As far as obligations, he said Salah Salem what I have ordered you to do, do as much of it as you can. This is a very important principle of Islam. You do as much as you can you don't if you can't do it or you don't leave it or if you can't do it all you do as much as you can, as soon as the reserve is indicating that we won't be able to do

00:03:18--> 00:03:33

all of what is required but we must do as much as we can. Based upon this principle are many rulings Salah for example, there was a recent observed pray standing if you're not able to pray, pray sitting if you're not able to do that pray while lying down.

00:03:34--> 00:03:35

The

00:03:36--> 00:03:58

scholars have you know the mid they have different opinions on these things. But the point is that they decided that the scholars have also ruled that wherever as soon as I served told us to do something, it was do it to the best of our ability now to asking too many questions. Well, we saw an example here already of the

00:04:00--> 00:04:01

of the

00:04:02--> 00:04:03

sap you asked

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

how many times should we do it every year or something? There's no need to add when when the Rasul as a reseller is saying something he what he's saying is what he has been commanded by Allah subhanaw taala. That's what he and if Allah wanted him to say, had been done every year, he would have said it.

00:04:24--> 00:04:34

Asking him becomes a problem. Now in our times today, for example, it is the kind of this would be similar to the kind of arguments that we hear

00:04:36--> 00:04:59

with regard to Hadith. May Allah protect us some of the things that we say? I'm hoping, unknowingly because to knowingly says how those things become skillful becomes literally apostasy. But even unknowingly, it's certainly a side of the health side of gross ignorance, which again, there's no excuse. So, me being very clear, that we don't ask unnecessarily

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

Questions. This is very, very critical.

00:05:03--> 00:05:08

Now one interesting thing here is if you see the questions

00:05:10--> 00:05:10

in the Quran,

00:05:12--> 00:05:15

somebody said that there are only 13 questions that were answered in the Quran.

00:05:18--> 00:05:25

For example, let's say Alice, Bertha said they asked you about the moon cycles, they asked you about menstruation, they asked you about the boundaries of what

00:05:27--> 00:05:30

color and value and so on.

00:05:31--> 00:05:34

Whereas, regarding Underoath, they asked you about the wardrobe.

00:05:36--> 00:05:57

And so they allowed said, we are as Malika we said, we were prohibited to ask her Surah Surah Surah two any questions so we would be very happy when an intelligent Bedouin came to the province on Salah with asking questions. So we could listen, asking too many questions and disagree with a solo salaam can cause our destruction. If it happened to the people before us, it can happen to us also.

00:05:58--> 00:06:05

And we see this happening May Allah protect us from that. Now, last point, and this is what takes proceed of doing

00:06:07--> 00:06:41

obligatory actions for the actions or staying away from what is haram prohibited, know, according to the squatters, avoiding bad deeds takes precedence over doing good deeds, when the bad deed is clearly prohibited. And the good deed is recommended, meaning that the bad deed is haram, the good deed is muster. So do avoid the bad deed first, when the good deed is further than doing that is better and more important because it involves acting upon something that Allah wants you to do. So for example, praying five times a day is for

00:06:43--> 00:06:44

burying the hatchet is,

00:06:45--> 00:06:49

is obligatory is Miss musta. So nuts. So if you

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

leave the 100

00:06:53--> 00:06:58

because you want to, you know you're doing something which is,

00:06:59--> 00:07:11

for example, researching or something to write, or, or working to, to help and protect the Muslims. And you must do that, because you're doing something which is of greater value.

00:07:13--> 00:07:13

But

00:07:14--> 00:07:17

leaving for there is no there's no excuse for that.

00:07:20--> 00:07:33

It is proactive obedience, as opposed to something which is passive avoidance, what is forbidden, although saying leaving the Haram is not passive, it's also an active opposition to

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

do what is prohibited by law, Samantha,

00:07:38--> 00:07:40

it's very important to focus on,

00:07:41--> 00:07:46

on the D on our deeds. This is the whole issue of

00:07:48--> 00:07:49

the whole issue of

00:07:52--> 00:07:54

Islam where

00:07:56--> 00:07:59

when we don't do that, when we

00:08:00--> 00:08:09

get involved in arguments and so on, and chatter very smart because he gets us involved in arguments in the in the

00:08:10--> 00:08:12

guise of,

00:08:13--> 00:08:14

of intellectual,

00:08:15--> 00:08:24

you know, intellectualizing makes you feel intelligent by asking questions, which I really have no answers. So, we have all kinds of convoluted theories,

00:08:25--> 00:08:34

which have no basis, but the action of the person is not there. So, you know, sometimes we get involved in these things and believe,

00:08:35--> 00:08:43

important sooner, sooner and we leave, even sometime we are protectors and forgive us, we may even leave right now, there's something to be

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

very, very

00:08:47--> 00:08:56

strongly avoided, was never do that. We ask Allah subhanaw taala for his protection for us from

00:08:57--> 00:09:02

from doing things which are often really no benefit and potentially very harmful for us.

00:09:04--> 00:09:40

asking too many questions is one of them arguing is another one of them. Argue with the scholars, many times people ask questions, which are really very disrespectful, and which they equate themselves in, for example, I've mailed a product or some people say, oh, what so what if you haven't already said that? So but so what if, if, if I want if I said no, I also have a thought that we degrading yourself with somebody like that with some of the other great scholars itself is a sign of gross ignorance, because it means that you have really neither knowledge nor appreciation of what they did, and

00:09:42--> 00:09:55

who they were and what you what they represent. And that itself is a sign of what to say we read sincerely, quite often. So I ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to, to obey as well as

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

to the best of our ability and to forgive us for our shortcomings.

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

So a lot a lot that will get him while he was away maybe Africa
