My brothers and sisters,

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

it was the 10th year of Hijra.

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

10 years after the Hijra of Rasool Allah

00:00:27 --> 00:00:27

in

00:00:27 --> 00:00:28

Madinah.

00:00:30 --> 00:00:32

And he sent 2 of his

00:00:33 --> 00:00:35

most beloved and dearest to

00:00:37 --> 00:00:37

Yemen.

00:00:40 --> 00:00:40

One

00:00:41 --> 00:00:42

was Abu and

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

the other one was.

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

Yemen was in 2

00:00:52 --> 00:00:53

divided into 2 parts,

00:00:54 --> 00:00:55

northern and southern.

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

So he sent one of them each to

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

these two provinces.

00:01:03 --> 00:01:04

Both of them young people

00:01:08 --> 00:01:10

was also a beautiful of the Quran.

00:01:13 --> 00:01:14

Was

00:01:14 --> 00:01:16

one of the closest Sahaba

00:01:18 --> 00:01:19

young man.

00:01:20 --> 00:01:22

One of the most learned

00:01:23 --> 00:01:24

praised his knowledge.

00:01:26 --> 00:01:28

And very handsome, very

00:01:28 --> 00:01:29

personable map.

00:01:32 --> 00:01:33

So

00:01:38 --> 00:01:39

is sending him off.

00:01:41 --> 00:01:44

Asked him to mount his horse. He was

00:01:44 --> 00:01:48

on the horse. He's leading him out of

00:01:48 --> 00:01:49

Madina

00:01:49 --> 00:01:50

on the road to.

00:01:55 --> 00:01:56

And see the whole

00:01:57 --> 00:01:58

imagine the picture

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

Rasulullah

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

is giving advice.

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

He is also

00:02:04 --> 00:02:05

testing his knowledge.

00:02:07 --> 00:02:09

So he asked him, he said, yeah,

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

mad. How will you judge between the people?

00:02:12 --> 00:02:14

Because this is a part of his work

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

there.

00:02:18 --> 00:02:19

He said, how will you judge between the

00:02:19 --> 00:02:20

people?

00:02:23 --> 00:02:26

I will judge between the people based on

00:02:26 --> 00:02:27

the of Allah.

00:02:28 --> 00:02:29

On the book of Allah.

00:02:31 --> 00:02:34

So, Rasul Rasasan said to him, what if

00:02:34 --> 00:02:36

you don't find the answer in the of

00:02:36 --> 00:02:36

Allah?

00:02:37 --> 00:02:40

Meaning, if there is no direct about something,

00:02:40 --> 00:02:41

what will you do?

00:02:42 --> 00:02:43

He said, I will look

00:02:44 --> 00:02:45

in your sunnah. I

00:02:46 --> 00:02:49

will look in your teachings, in your

00:02:50 --> 00:02:52

On a side note, this is one of

00:02:52 --> 00:02:53

the many evidences

00:02:55 --> 00:02:58

that the Ahadis and the Babiya and Sharifa

00:02:58 --> 00:02:59

were recorded

00:03:00 --> 00:03:01

and collected and preserved

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

in the life of Rasool

00:03:04 --> 00:03:05

himself.

00:03:06 --> 00:03:07

Among some of the

00:03:08 --> 00:03:09

so called

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

educated Muslims

00:03:12 --> 00:03:14

and I say so called because this is

00:03:14 --> 00:03:17

a fit and I have found only in

00:03:17 --> 00:03:19

those people. They have taken and swallowed the

00:03:19 --> 00:03:21

lies of the orientalist

00:03:21 --> 00:03:23

who said that the

00:03:23 --> 00:03:26

were collected only a 150 years after

00:03:27 --> 00:03:27

passed away.

00:03:28 --> 00:03:30

So when somebody told me this, I asked

00:03:30 --> 00:03:32

you a very simple question. I said,

00:03:33 --> 00:03:34

Do me a favor.

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

In this

00:03:37 --> 00:03:39

room, collect for me the number of diamonds.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

He said there are no diamonds.

00:03:42 --> 00:03:43

I said, exactly.

00:03:44 --> 00:03:46

If somebody says you collected something, it means

00:03:46 --> 00:03:47

it was there.

00:03:48 --> 00:03:49

Otherwise, how did they collect?

00:03:51 --> 00:03:53

Even the orienteers don't say that Imam Bukhari

00:03:53 --> 00:03:55

and Imam Muslim and so on. They

00:03:57 --> 00:03:58

wrote up something

00:03:58 --> 00:04:00

by themselves. They don't say that. They said

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

they collected.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:03

How do you collect if it is not

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

there?

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

But you know what they said.

00:04:07 --> 00:04:09

So anyway, to come back to the story.

00:04:10 --> 00:04:12

So, he said, how will you judge between

00:04:12 --> 00:04:14

the people? He said, by the Allah. He

00:04:14 --> 00:04:15

said, if you don't find the answer there,

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

what will you do? He said, I will

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

see and look in your.

00:04:21 --> 00:04:23

Said, if you do not not find the

00:04:23 --> 00:04:24

answer even there, what will you do? He

00:04:24 --> 00:04:26

said I will consult with

00:04:27 --> 00:04:28

the scholars.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:31

Other people other people of knowledge. In this

00:04:31 --> 00:04:32

case, Abu Sala al Sharia and

00:04:34 --> 00:04:36

maybe other people. And he said, supposing you

00:04:36 --> 00:04:37

are alone, there is nobody there. Then what

00:04:37 --> 00:04:39

will you do? He said, I will use

00:04:39 --> 00:04:39

my intelligence.

00:04:41 --> 00:04:41

Now

00:04:42 --> 00:04:44

these are the 4 principles incidentally. These are

00:04:44 --> 00:04:46

the 4 principles on which

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

the

00:04:50 --> 00:04:51

getting of the

00:04:51 --> 00:04:53

rulings in our Sharia is based on this

00:04:53 --> 00:04:54

4th.

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

The book of Allah, the sunnah of Rasulullah,

00:05:04 --> 00:05:07

which is the consensus of the scholars and

00:05:07 --> 00:05:08

which

00:05:08 --> 00:05:11

is deductive reasoning by a scholar,

00:05:12 --> 00:05:13

not by anybody.

00:05:16 --> 00:05:19

By somebody who is trained and capable and

00:05:19 --> 00:05:21

educated and qualified to make.

00:05:23 --> 00:05:25

It's like doing an operation. Right? I mean,

00:05:25 --> 00:05:27

you you can't simply come lie down. Give

00:05:27 --> 00:05:28

me a knife. No.

00:05:29 --> 00:05:31

You have to be trained. You have to

00:05:31 --> 00:05:33

go under all the training and whatnot and

00:05:33 --> 00:05:34

be certified. Then you can do an operation.

00:05:36 --> 00:05:37

So he said this.

00:05:39 --> 00:05:39

Then Rasulullah

00:05:41 --> 00:05:42

says to him,

00:05:43 --> 00:05:43

you

00:05:44 --> 00:05:44

are

00:05:45 --> 00:05:46

going to

00:05:47 --> 00:05:50

a people of the book, Alun Kitab.

00:05:50 --> 00:05:51

Because the Yemenis

00:05:52 --> 00:05:52

were Christian.

00:05:54 --> 00:05:56

He said you are going to a people

00:05:56 --> 00:05:56

of the book.

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

And that

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

Muhammad is the

00:06:10 --> 00:06:12

messenger of Allah, the last and final one.

00:06:12 --> 00:06:13

Call them to

00:06:16 --> 00:06:17

If they accept,

00:06:19 --> 00:06:20

if they accept,

00:06:21 --> 00:06:23

meaning now they have become Muslim.

00:06:24 --> 00:06:26

Tell them that Allah

00:06:26 --> 00:06:27

has made salah

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

on them 5 times a day.

00:06:32 --> 00:06:35

So it's not simply telling them, meaning then

00:06:35 --> 00:06:36

teach them salah,

00:06:37 --> 00:06:38

how to pray also.

00:06:39 --> 00:06:41

He said when they start praying,

00:06:44 --> 00:06:45

then tell them about

00:06:47 --> 00:06:50

and take Zakat from their wealthy people

00:06:51 --> 00:06:53

and give it to their poor people.

00:06:55 --> 00:06:56

See

00:06:56 --> 00:06:59

the amazing wisdom and the beauty of this.

00:07:01 --> 00:07:04

He says take it from their wealthy people.

00:07:04 --> 00:07:06

He didn't say take it from their wealthy

00:07:06 --> 00:07:08

people and send it to Badinah. No. He

00:07:08 --> 00:07:10

said take it from their wealthy people and

00:07:10 --> 00:07:12

give it to their poor people.

00:07:13 --> 00:07:14

Then he says,

00:07:17 --> 00:07:21

beware of be aware of their best things

00:07:22 --> 00:07:24

and do not take them.

00:07:26 --> 00:07:27

Take something which is,

00:07:29 --> 00:07:29

which is

00:07:30 --> 00:07:32

good, but it is not their best.

00:07:33 --> 00:07:36

So don't take trash, but also don't take

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

their

00:07:37 --> 00:07:38

most beloved and best things.

00:07:42 --> 00:07:43

Now see the

00:07:44 --> 00:07:47

amazing wisdom of first of all, in stages.

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

Not the whole

00:07:50 --> 00:07:51

data dump on 1 at at one go.

00:07:51 --> 00:07:52

Stages. 1st,

00:07:54 --> 00:07:56

after that salah, which is the

00:07:56 --> 00:07:58

proof of tawhid. How do I know that

00:07:58 --> 00:07:59

I am or

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

Muhammad by

00:08:02 --> 00:08:04

my salah. If I'm not praying, then I

00:08:04 --> 00:08:06

don't know whether I am on the shahada

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

or not. Because I say Allah is worthy

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

of worship, but I don't worship Allah then

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

what is where is the shahada? So shahada.

00:08:13 --> 00:08:15

Salah is the proof of shahada.

00:08:17 --> 00:08:18

So shahada,

00:08:18 --> 00:08:20

tawhid, salah

00:08:20 --> 00:08:22

and then zakad. Now see the beauty of

00:08:22 --> 00:08:22

this,

00:08:23 --> 00:08:23

advice.

00:08:24 --> 00:08:26

In any society, and this is across the

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

world,

00:08:27 --> 00:08:28

any society, anytime.

00:08:29 --> 00:08:33

The wealthy people will always be fewer than

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

the poor people.

00:08:34 --> 00:08:36

Poor people always will be majority. Wealthy will

00:08:36 --> 00:08:39

always be few. Now because the wealthy are

00:08:39 --> 00:08:42

few and because of their lifestyle and so

00:08:42 --> 00:08:43

on and so forth, they will be isolated

00:08:43 --> 00:08:45

from the poor. They will not live in

00:08:45 --> 00:08:48

the same areas, same localities. They will live

00:08:48 --> 00:08:51

in better better areas, bigger houses. And depending

00:08:51 --> 00:08:52

on the country and so on. Maybe the

00:08:52 --> 00:08:54

house will have a big compound wall around

00:08:54 --> 00:08:56

it. Maybe it will have security. Maybe at

00:08:56 --> 00:08:59

this, that, whatnot. All of this. So there

00:08:59 --> 00:09:00

is a separation.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:04

Also, there is some resentment usually among the

00:09:04 --> 00:09:06

poor people looking at the wealthy people. Oh,

00:09:06 --> 00:09:07

my god. This fellow has got this big

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

house. Why does he need this big kite?

00:09:09 --> 00:09:10

He's flying in a plane. All this.

00:09:12 --> 00:09:15

This advice of take from their wealthy gift

00:09:15 --> 00:09:16

to their poor.

00:09:17 --> 00:09:19

So first of all, nobody can complain that

00:09:19 --> 00:09:21

here is somebody who came and he take

00:09:21 --> 00:09:24

he is taking our wealth away and sending

00:09:24 --> 00:09:26

sending it somewhere. No. Your wealth is still

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

in your own place,

00:09:29 --> 00:09:30

in your own community. It's coming from your

00:09:30 --> 00:09:32

wealthy going to the poor, number 1. Number

00:09:32 --> 00:09:34

2, because of that now,

00:09:34 --> 00:09:37

the poor people say, oh, Allah, this man,

00:09:37 --> 00:09:39

this big lord, this big race,

00:09:40 --> 00:09:42

he never gave anything. Now he's giving. So

00:09:42 --> 00:09:44

he's a nice man. So there is a

00:09:44 --> 00:09:46

meeting of the hearts. There is friendship between

00:09:46 --> 00:09:48

the wealthy and the poor.

00:09:49 --> 00:09:51

3rd thing is when the wealthy actually take

00:09:51 --> 00:09:52

the money, they go and give it to

00:09:52 --> 00:09:54

the poor, their hearts also will be soft.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:56

Somebody will say, you know what? I'm supposed

00:09:56 --> 00:09:57

to give 2 and a half percent, but

00:09:57 --> 00:10:00

really my 2 and a half percent won't

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

help these people. They need more. I have

00:10:03 --> 00:10:06

more. I will give more. So wealth is

00:10:06 --> 00:10:08

spread out more. Then very importantly,

00:10:09 --> 00:10:11

the poor people, they will think, how come

00:10:11 --> 00:10:13

why is this man he never gave anything

00:10:13 --> 00:10:16

till now he's giving? Why? Because of Islam.

00:10:18 --> 00:10:20

What changed? Because he became Muslim.

00:10:21 --> 00:10:22

Until now he was not giving. He was

00:10:22 --> 00:10:24

here. His father was here. His grandfather was

00:10:24 --> 00:10:26

nobody gave. But this man is giving

00:10:26 --> 00:10:29

because he became Muslim. So now the doors

00:10:29 --> 00:10:31

of the hearts of the people are open

00:10:31 --> 00:10:32

to Islam because of this.

00:10:33 --> 00:10:35

The beauty of the advice. And then finally,

00:10:35 --> 00:10:37

Rabbi Shams says don't take from their best

00:10:37 --> 00:10:39

because the wealthy man, you know, maybe he's

00:10:39 --> 00:10:40

got this

00:10:41 --> 00:10:43

beautiful car he has got or he's got

00:10:43 --> 00:10:44

these jewels in the house. Maybe those days

00:10:44 --> 00:10:46

they had horses and so on. So he

00:10:46 --> 00:10:48

got this fantastic stallion. He said, oh, give

00:10:48 --> 00:10:49

me this horse.

00:10:49 --> 00:10:51

No. No. Leave it to him. He said,

00:10:51 --> 00:10:53

alhamdulillah, he's Allah has given him. Bless him.

00:10:53 --> 00:10:55

Let him enjoy it. Let him let him

00:10:55 --> 00:10:56

let him, be with that.

00:10:58 --> 00:11:00

Take something which is a blessed variable.

00:11:01 --> 00:11:01

Take it.

00:11:02 --> 00:11:05

Although having said that, you know, in the

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

Quran,

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

Allah said,

00:11:10 --> 00:11:12

Allah said you cannot reach the highest level

00:11:12 --> 00:11:13

of piety

00:11:13 --> 00:11:17

until you spend from your wealth. What?

00:11:17 --> 00:11:19

That which you love the most, the best.

00:11:20 --> 00:11:22

But this is in firaadi. This is for

00:11:22 --> 00:11:24

the individual. It's your choice. You want to

00:11:24 --> 00:11:25

pray tahajjud alhamdulillah.

00:11:27 --> 00:11:28

But it's not far from you. But for

00:11:28 --> 00:11:29

tahajjud, Allah

00:11:30 --> 00:11:32

will come to the first heaven. Allah does

00:11:32 --> 00:11:34

not come to the first heaven for salatulisha.

00:11:34 --> 00:11:35

He does not come to the first heaven

00:11:35 --> 00:11:37

for salatul dhor, but this is far. So

00:11:37 --> 00:11:38

pray salatul But

00:11:41 --> 00:11:43

if you really want to be close to

00:11:43 --> 00:11:43

Allah

00:11:45 --> 00:11:46

wake up for tajj.

00:11:48 --> 00:11:48

Do more.

00:11:49 --> 00:11:52

Extra. There is benefit in doing more.

00:11:53 --> 00:11:55

But that is left to the individual. If

00:11:55 --> 00:11:57

somebody does not pray tajjud, he will not

00:11:57 --> 00:11:58

go to jannah. But if he does not

00:11:58 --> 00:11:59

pray, he's got

00:12:01 --> 00:12:02

trouble. But if you pray,

00:12:03 --> 00:12:05

You know, we say the last

00:12:06 --> 00:12:07

and these,

00:12:09 --> 00:12:11

the odd night and.

00:12:11 --> 00:12:13

When I think about this, there is for

00:12:13 --> 00:12:14

the Muslim every night.

00:12:15 --> 00:12:18

The whole year is zayratul qadr because Allah

00:12:18 --> 00:12:20

is descending to the first seven. Allah is

00:12:20 --> 00:12:22

asking who who wants something? Ask me. We

00:12:22 --> 00:12:23

ask him.

00:12:24 --> 00:12:26

From the perspective, from the angle of the

00:12:26 --> 00:12:29

dua, it is like qadr. Alhamdulillah.

00:12:30 --> 00:12:32

But this is Infinadi. So Nabi Sadat al

00:12:32 --> 00:12:33

Islam says to you, no. Leave that to

00:12:34 --> 00:12:35

let them do if they want to do.

00:12:35 --> 00:12:36

Somebody says, no. No. No. I want to

00:12:36 --> 00:12:38

give you my best. Okay. No problem. Give.

00:12:39 --> 00:12:40

But I will not ask for it. I

00:12:40 --> 00:12:41

will not take it from you.

00:12:43 --> 00:12:44

See the beauty.

00:12:45 --> 00:12:47

Now to to close and and complete.

00:12:47 --> 00:12:50

These are the principles of dawah to Islam.

00:12:52 --> 00:12:54

When we give dawah to people, these are

00:12:54 --> 00:12:55

the principles. Softness,

00:12:56 --> 00:12:58

stage by stage, 1 by 1. Don't make

00:12:58 --> 00:13:01

it difficult on them. Make it easy on

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

them.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:04

Make it easy does not mean break the

00:13:04 --> 00:13:06

rules. No. You don't make halam into halal.

00:13:06 --> 00:13:08

No. What is halam Islam? But at the

00:13:08 --> 00:13:09

same time,

00:13:09 --> 00:13:11

you don't make it difficult.

00:13:11 --> 00:13:13

You try to be as cooperative as possible,

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

as kind as possible,

00:13:17 --> 00:13:18

and

00:13:18 --> 00:13:20

the whole of Yemen became Muslim.

00:13:22 --> 00:13:23

He asked Allah

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

to take

00:13:24 --> 00:13:26

lessons from the seerah of Rasulullah salallahu alaihi

00:13:26 --> 00:13:28

wa sallam, which Allah

00:13:28 --> 00:13:30

sent specifically for that reason.

00:13:31 --> 00:13:32

He sent his soul

00:13:32 --> 00:13:33

to be emulated,

00:13:34 --> 00:13:37

to be learned from and he put barakah

00:13:37 --> 00:13:39

in his life in studying that in emulating

00:13:39 --> 00:13:41

it and bringing it into our lives. We

00:13:41 --> 00:13:43

ask Allah for this.
