Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Shafi cambia evil mousseline Mohammad Rasool Allah is Allah Allahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam to Steven cathedral cathedral novago.

00:00:17--> 00:00:23

My brothers and sisters, this is the fifth and the last in the series of photos on

00:00:25--> 00:01:07

called focus on the fundamentals. Those of those of you who haven't listened to all of them, I suggest you go back and listen to all of them. There is a there is this video, haha, and then there is also an audio recording, as well as a text that goes with each of these. So all of them are on our website, please go and listen to all of them. I suggest you do that. Because I've tried to cover to the best of our ability, all the fundamentals the basic fundamentals of our faith, and ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada to accept it and to forgive any shortcomings in it.

00:01:08--> 00:01:12

Islam is based on the fundamental belief in Dahveed.

00:01:14--> 00:01:21

The oneness of Allah subhanho wa taala, which means that we believe that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah.

00:01:22--> 00:01:28

And that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the last and final messenger of Allah

00:01:29--> 00:01:40

salAllahu Alaihe Salam. This means that we believe and state that we worship only Allah and seek help only from Allah, we make dua only to Allah.

00:01:42--> 00:01:52

This belief in the exclusivity of Allah subhanho wa Taala in worship, and seeking help is the condition for someone to enter and stay in Islam.

00:01:53--> 00:02:04

This is the condition it's compromised or change in any way by directing worship or seeking help from anyone other than Allah takes one out of Islam.

00:02:05--> 00:02:19

It is essential to appreciate that it is as easy to enter Islam as it is to leave it and that is why we must study Islam systematically so that we get our foundation right.

00:02:20--> 00:02:28

Before I go further, let me remind myself and you that there are four sources of Islamic law, the Quran

00:02:29--> 00:02:41

and the Sunnah. Iijima, which is consensus of the scholars and class, which is deductive reasoning by a scholar in the absence of

00:02:42--> 00:02:52

other scholars, and if he has no access to that. The second to that is Iijima and class are subjected to the Quran and Sunnah.

00:02:53--> 00:03:03

And whatever is decided, must be within the framework of what Allah subhanaw taala commanded. And what also realize Allahu alayhi salam thought

00:03:05--> 00:03:11

the most beautiful Hadith and the most beautiful delay for these four sources of

00:03:14--> 00:03:51

Islamic law is the delay is the story in this era, where my bingeable are the Alon, one of the young and Saudi Sahaba, one of the most intelligent of them, he was half of the Quran. He was it was a bridge, understanding and wisdom and knowledge. And he was one of the favorite pupils and one of the favorite students and to have an offer sort of the he sort of the holy center, and as always are appointed him as the governor of Yemen. And you're sending him to Yemen.

00:03:52--> 00:03:54

And imagine this beautiful scene.

00:03:55--> 00:04:10

Awesome. Soon as a Salem ordered him to march on his horse, mad bingeable monitor on his horse, as soon as I sell him then held the bridle of the horse and he was walking wide bingeable out of Medina on the way to

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

on the road to Yemen.

00:04:13--> 00:04:15

And he said to him, yeah, what

00:04:18--> 00:04:32

how will you decide between the people because as soon as a Salah was sending him as a judge, so he said How will you decide between the people mad bingeable on the Iran said on the basis of the book of ALLAH SubhanA hotel

00:04:34--> 00:04:37

as soon as I said I'm smiled. And he said to him

00:04:40--> 00:04:47

and what else will you use to decide on the basis decide between the people

00:04:48--> 00:04:56

and he said the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasul allah sallallahu Sallam the Sunnah of his messenger of His Rasul Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam.

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

And then the surah says

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

And I'm saying that if you do not find the answer in these two places, what will you do? I've been yelled out there and said that I will consult with other people of knowledge and we will come to a conclusion and a consensus, which is within the framework of the Quran and Sunnah.

00:05:17--> 00:05:23

And a Surah Surah sallam said then what will you do if there is no one available to you? And why we never know there are no said then I will

00:05:25--> 00:05:30

try to make my own decision based on the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:05:32--> 00:05:34

Now, this is the beauty.

00:05:36--> 00:05:41

And this is the source of my say that there are these four

00:05:42--> 00:05:49

bases of Islamic knowledge. The first two, the Quran and the Sunnah,

00:05:50--> 00:05:54

both divine in different ways, and

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

is Ma welfares is the consensus of experts in the field, scholars of Islam, who have the necessary qualifications to give opinions.

00:06:08--> 00:06:09


00:06:13--> 00:06:23

this is understood and should be understood, and is understood in any body of knowledge that we talked about. But in the case of Islam, it seems that this must be stated

00:06:24--> 00:06:36

that both Ismar and Koreas can only legitimately be done by people who are experts in the field that is scholars of Islam who have the necessary qualifications to give opinions.

00:06:38--> 00:07:01

Anyone who follows a person who's not qualified in Islam, and takes his opinion on a an Islamic matter on a matter of Islamic law, or belief or practice, does so at his own risk. Like a person who follows health advice from someone who's not qualified as a physician, otherwise known as a quack

00:07:02--> 00:07:07

as we say in Urdu, neem Hakim arthralgia, knee Mala katri. Eman.

00:07:09--> 00:07:31

The difference between the victim of a NEMA game and a knee Mala is the victim of a new Hakeem will end up worst case scenario in Afghanistan in a cemetery, whereas the victim of a knee Mola will end up in Jana, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to save us from ourselves.

00:07:32--> 00:07:53

I remind myself when you that we follow a religion which is based on a book the Quran Al Karim, and its explanation, the field book, the book of ama of how to implement what is in the Quran called the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the two are together.

00:07:55--> 00:08:20

One is the Hukam. And the second one is the way that Helcom is to be implemented. One is the command the second one is the way the command is to be implemented. All opinions, all For thou all rulings in Islam are based on these to an end when faced with these texts, any opinion any rule will end when it is faced with the text.

00:08:21--> 00:08:29

We reiterate the hate and emphasize it and bear witness to it in every raka of every Salah

00:08:30--> 00:08:41

in Surah Al Fatiha itself. We say yeah can you do what you can to stay in we say Oh Allah, You alone we worship and You alone we seek help from

00:08:42--> 00:09:02

Rasul Allah is Allah is seldom taught us that dua that supplication is worship. And so it is not permitted to make dua to anyone other than Allah. Or to include anyone when we make dua to Allah. To do so is Sheikh and takes you out of Islam.

00:09:04--> 00:09:25

And normally whenever Shiva they allow anima and in Nabi SallAllahu. Taala he was a llama call Eduardo well a bad Thalma Cara Karla book order only as fast as you will welcome in lady nya stuck below and i Neva T co the Hello Nigel had never done

00:09:26--> 00:09:28

a normal live number zero the Rama reported

00:09:30--> 00:09:40

that Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said, dua is worship itself. Dua itself is worship. Then the Sunnah is recited the ayah

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

your proclaim call upon me and I will respond to you call upon the only STG bloco call upon Me I will respond to you. Verily those who disdain my worship will enter Jahannam in humiliation, and this is so the remedy

00:10:00--> 00:10:19

And as I say it is, it is our appear that it is our creed that in matters that only Allah can do. It is not permissible to seek the help or favors from anyone other than Allah except Allah, including the Malaika including the angels or prophets or anyone else

00:10:20--> 00:10:25

to do that is major shift and negates our Islam

00:10:30--> 00:10:52

unless of Anna Tara said to us all Eliza Selim, call la umbilical enough see enough on Waddell darlin Illa Masha Allah while open to high level of EVA, let's tuck Farah to mineral fade Eva mama Cynthia Sue, in an Elana Villanueva she ruli Call Me you me noon.

00:10:54--> 00:11:02

Say O Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, I have no power to benefit or protect myself, except by the will of Allah.

00:11:03--> 00:11:19

If I had known the unknown if I had knowledge of the unknown of the right, I would have benefited myself enormously, and no harm would have ever touched me. I am only a one and a deliverer of good news for those who believe.

00:11:20--> 00:11:26

Allah subhanaw taala ordered us to make dua to him alone.

00:11:28--> 00:12:21

Without ascribing any partners, without anybody in between, without to descend through that dua to Allah Allah. Call up boo Komodo oni a study of luck in Allah the registered Bureau and it rather it, said the follower as your hand number DAFI Your love has proclaimed call upon me and I will respond to surely those who are too proud to worship Me will enter the handle in humiliation. And then I was very interested also in sort of avid father Allah Holy See in Allahu Deen our ogre el Kaffee rule. So God upon Allah, with sincere devotion, even though the disbelievers do not like this, and then I was very interested in sort of Lara, although back home for the role a half year in the whole lie

00:12:21--> 00:12:31

you have bull Martha de Call upon your rubbed humbly and sincerely and secretly Call upon your love humbly and secretly and

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

surely he does not like transgressors.

00:12:38--> 00:12:59

And then Allah subhanaw taala said and so the jinn are under massage de la de Falla, third ro ma Allah He had the places of worship to massage the place of worship only for Allah. So do not make dua to anyone other than Him do not invoke anyone other than the RO.

00:13:00--> 00:13:01

Ma Allah He

00:13:03--> 00:13:24

do not call on anyone along with Allah or anyone other than Allah. For Allah Tada Omar Allah Isla Han Hatha Fatah corner mineral mouth mineral was the bean. Allah subhana Dennison, do not ever call upon any god other than Allah or you will be one of the punished

00:13:25--> 00:13:41

and finally, there are many, many, I'm just giving you some of them. One other looming my year the room in dunya Allah Himalayas the G hula hoop, Isla yo Milka Yama, diva whom and do it even if you don't, Allah said and who could be more astray

00:13:44--> 00:13:58

than those who call upon others besides Allah, others other than Allah at others, together with others that cannot respond to them until the day of judgment, and are even unaware of their calls.

00:13:59--> 00:14:04

You call upon that person, that person cannot respond. And that person doesn't do know that we have called

00:14:06--> 00:14:52

anyone myself we knew that asking is of two kinds. We ask someone who's alive in this world and who is before us or accessible to us in this life, on the phone is that whatever. This is permissible, there is no problem with this. The second kind of asking is when people ask someone or something which is not alive in this world. This kind of asking, no matter who you ask, is haram and mentorship and takes a person out of Islam and looks around turreted very clearly. In Nicola to smear all moto wala to smear Oh, some Medusa either our low Motability unless it's so Verily you Oh Mohamed Salah Salem cannot make the dead to hear.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

Nor can you make the deaf to hear the call when they show their backs turning away

00:15:01--> 00:15:05

This is being told to himself imagine where are you and

00:15:06--> 00:15:40

then Allah said, Brahma yes the will here well I'm what in Allah yusmeiro Mania SHA one MA and be most Marian mum Phil LeBeau. Allah subhanaw taala said not alike, they are not the same the living and the dead, which by inference means also believers and disbelievers because the hearts are living in the hearts are dead. Verily Allah makes those whom He wills to hear, but you cannot make those who are in their graves to hear.

00:15:42--> 00:15:43

Now, as I said,

00:15:44--> 00:16:03

the sources of law and belief in Islam are for the first and the most important and the most critical of them is the Kitab of Allah. I'm giving you the lie. I'm giving you references from the Kitab of Allah, we have not gone away from the GitHub of Allah.

00:16:04--> 00:16:17

From the above ayat, it is clear that those who are in their graves cannot hear us if we speak to them. Allah even give the examples of the deaf who cannot hear us even though they are right in front of us.

00:16:18--> 00:16:35

Now, there are two questions that are generally asked in this regard. First question is, what about the Hadith where Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam spoke to the dead in the well after the Battle of brother. And this is the story when after the Battle of whether all the dead of the Horatio

00:16:36--> 00:16:48

the bodies were thrown into a dry well, and sorrows, a wrestler went dead and he spoke to them and he say, yeah, he called on them and he said, Did you find the promise of my rap to be true?

00:16:50--> 00:16:56

And says in our Delano, he came there and he said, Yeah, so Allah Salam, you are speaking to the dead

00:16:57--> 00:17:02

by the man in whose hand is the life of barbarism Salam, they can hear me better than you can hear me.

00:17:04--> 00:17:15

Now, people say well, what about this, this hadith and this story? Because I just gave you the ayat of the Quran. We seem to be against this. Please understand, there's no contradiction.

00:17:17--> 00:17:23

This was one of the miracles one of the modules that which is specific to Rasul Allah, He said,

00:17:24--> 00:17:35

Every understand and the miracle of the Navi the modules of the Navi or the Rasul is not a delille. Indeed to say that we can do the same thing. There are many examples of this principle.

00:17:36--> 00:17:51

For example resource SLM splitting the moon by making any Shara with his finger, he signed like this and the moon split into two. This is our EMA This is our Akita this is something which happened historically this is something which Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran

00:17:54--> 00:17:59

but do you think if you and I go and we have our finger at the moon something right?

00:18:01--> 00:18:10

Or take the miracle the Musa Elisa, boys Alison or other Ambien Musa Musa al Islam struck the water with the staff and the water parted?

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

What do you think will happen if I was strike water with my with a with a stick? It will flush splash in my face

00:18:20--> 00:18:40

is Ali salaam brought the debt to life? He the blind man he caused the blind man to get his sight he cured the level did you do all these things? No. All of these things were done. Through is Elisa by the Hakama Allah and Allah as Rhonda mentioned all of them in the car.

00:18:42--> 00:18:43


00:18:44--> 00:18:47

with the Hakama Allah with the will of Allah.

00:18:49--> 00:18:51

He says Allah was the means through which this happened.

00:18:53--> 00:19:00

This happens was every day we get a headache, we take a tablet, the headache goes away. Who is the file? Who's the virus?

00:19:02--> 00:19:05

Who's the one who actually did this center with headache? The tablet

00:19:07--> 00:19:09

so should be worshipped with a bottle of Tylenol?

00:19:13--> 00:19:36

Why do we don't need to go anywhere for all these things. The thing is very soon in our life everyday we get this reminder that Allah is the One who does something. Not anyway. So when we when in this case of Ross was also speaking to those people in the in the well. That was one of the miracles of the Roswell isa lab specific to him happen then he didn't go around doing this all the time.

00:19:38--> 00:19:47

And it does not mean that if you and I talked to some, you know, one standard agreement speak and the person can hear us we have the Quran saying that the person cannot hear us.

00:19:48--> 00:19:55

I don't need anything more than that. Second question that people ask, why do we say salam alikoum Yeah.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

When we go to the cemetery, if the read cannot hear us

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

If you know Arabic, you understand that when you are saying Salam Alikum, your anarcho you are making dua for the people you are saying May peace be upon you, or people of the grace. We are sending pleas and blessings on the occupants of the graves. We are not speaking we are not speaking to them. You're saying to Allah, may Salam be on these people as a dua for them?

00:20:26--> 00:20:31

It would be very funny if they if you said they just stood there and said Salam alikoum Yeah.

00:20:32--> 00:20:34

You heard a voice saying while he was salam, yeah.

00:20:37--> 00:20:39

That will be very interesting to see what happens after that.

00:20:40--> 00:20:53

Therefore, anyone who goes to the grave of anyone, including the grave of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi, wasallam, and ask them, the occupant of the grave, ask them for any favor.

00:20:54--> 00:20:57

Give me this give me that I don't have a job, I don't have children, I don't have

00:20:59--> 00:21:11

you know, a spouse, I need a wife, I need a husband, I need children, I need this I need that. If the person goes to the grave of any person, including the grave of Rasul Allah,

00:21:12--> 00:21:18

and ask them for a favor, including saying to them, please make the out for me to Allah.

00:21:20--> 00:21:28

This person by his action, or her action, is saying these four things, what are they? Number one?

00:21:30--> 00:21:35

By your action, you are saying that this person in the grave can hear you? Why else are you talking to them?

00:21:37--> 00:21:44

You believe that they can hear you, if you believe that they can hear you. That belief is against the Quran, I give you the references of the

00:21:45--> 00:21:46

number two,

00:21:47--> 00:21:54

you believe that this person knows you. Because you are way going to the grave our souls are seldom Are you going to the grave of some person

00:21:57--> 00:22:02

who passed away 1000 years ago 500 years ago 10 years of whatever,

00:22:03--> 00:22:06

this person never saw you in their life, they have no clue who you are.

00:22:07--> 00:22:12

But when you are going and talking to the saying I am this I am that please do that for me who are you?

00:22:14--> 00:22:16

So you are believing that this person knows you.

00:22:18--> 00:22:18


00:22:19--> 00:22:51

first of all, this is against reason. makes absolutely zero sense. Second thing is who is the only one who knows every human being who ever lives Allah. So when you believe that you are ascribing. The civet, the quality of Allah subhanaw taala, that he knows every creature that he created, you are ascribing that quality to the person that grave and you believe that this person knows you, even though he never met you, he has no clue. But when you go and say I am so, you know I bring this up for you, I bring that for you or I

00:22:53--> 00:23:02

add that I am asking you for the favor you believe. So therefore, you ask having equality of Allah, a civet of Allah to that person this amounts to major shift.

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

Number three,

00:23:07--> 00:23:10

you are going and speaking in whichever language you speak,

00:23:11--> 00:23:14

the person in the grave never knew this language in his lifetime.

00:23:17--> 00:23:18

We go to the

00:23:19--> 00:23:25

Rosa Mobarak of Rasulullah Salah and people go there and people are asking for favors

00:23:26--> 00:23:28

in which language in their own language

00:23:31--> 00:23:37

in English and Tamil and Malayalam and you know French and German and Mandarin or whatever,

00:23:38--> 00:23:44

didn't know these languages, when he was alive, did you ever hear any Hadees to say spoken English.

00:23:47--> 00:23:55

So, when you go and do that, by your action, you are showing a belief that you believe that

00:23:56--> 00:24:00

this person discover can understand all languages.

00:24:01--> 00:24:05

Who is the only one who understand all languages, the creator of languages Allah subhanaw taala

00:24:07--> 00:24:09

and therefore that action is major should

00:24:10--> 00:24:11

last what?

00:24:12--> 00:24:21

You believe that this person in the grave can grant favors. Why else I've asked him and that is major shift.

00:24:22--> 00:24:32

To when you go to a cover when you go to a grave of somebody and you ask all these things, you are not just committing one major trick you are committing majors in four major ways.

00:24:34--> 00:24:48

All of these are directly against the Quran and Sunnah and against the direct commands of Allah subhanaw taala and resources to believe that the dead can hear us and do something for us on the Day of Judgment is against the Quran and Hadith and reason.

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

Anyone who asks that people in the grace of favors to intercede for him or make dua for him out of ignorance multicharacter. Anyone who believes this to be true and

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

And the doing that

00:25:02--> 00:25:05

has committed major ship and leftist.

00:25:06--> 00:25:42

We have one of the finest examples to emulate from the action of Satan Amara Catalano narrated by NSB Malika Delano and recorded disable curry when there was a severe drought in the hijas that year came to be called Al Al Ahmad the year of ashes zero cinders say there are there are no lead the people out of town to praise Allah to this discard a prayer for rain. And after the brand he called upon an advertisement of the motor limo the alarm when he said to him yeah bus Get up, stand up and make dua

00:25:45--> 00:25:47

and he said to him, yeah, bus

00:25:48--> 00:26:06

or Delano when Russell was wrestling was among us. We used to ask him to make God for a today he is no longer among us. So we asked you or uncle of the Rasul Elisa, to pray for him to make dua for him. Allah Bertha Delano stood up and he made dua, and it read

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

and as and as if numeric are they allowed

00:26:11--> 00:26:18

under honorable Katara Golan Garner either had to

00:26:19--> 00:26:35

his stay ca Bill Abbas he evening Abdul matale The cod Allah Houma in Kaduna, not there was several Ilica being a beginner sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for task aid.

00:26:36--> 00:26:47

But as Pina were in that there were several Ilica the Army Navy and for Skeena kala for use code

00:26:49--> 00:26:50

and this is so you Buhari

00:26:51--> 00:26:53

and has been medical the landlord reported.

00:26:55--> 00:27:00

If a doubt was threatening, Omar will kata would ask and Abbas been Abdulmutallab

00:27:01--> 00:27:42

to supplicate to make that for Allah subhanaw taala to send read over the Alana would say will love us to ask our Prophet peace and blessings be upon him to supplicate for rain and you will bless us with rain now we asked the uncle of our Prophet to supplicate for rain. So bless us with rain. And so it would rain. And this is the Edison say because it obviously says in our alpha tab or the Alana and all this ever present there knew where the grave also lies or Salem was located and they would have gone there and as soon as Wrestlemania. But they did not do that. Because that is what also the salah Salem taught them concerning the hustle.
