I lived in New York for 26 years.

and hamdulillah datamine with the help of Allah subhanaw taala I was in charge for that halacha for all 16 years, I moved here
nine members of the Halacha surprised me and came to Dallas.

As usual, every us every Thursday we take a hero from our history and
we discuss them hoping that Allah will bring someone amongst us that will imitate and emulate these heroes and hoping that one day we will wake up
Allah, hoping that one day we will wake up. So today's hero is a man that it was said about him. Man had been humble * Fahad Sana women carry her. Fahad carry has sunnah Allahu Akbar. Whosoever love Medina handle Allah He has loved the Sunnah for Salah Salem and Whoever does not love or hate or handle he hates us enough Muhammad Salah This is how much our hero today was attached and loved the Sunnah for Salah Salem, and he was the salt on Buddha. He was yeah and stringent about Buddha very strict about any innovations in the deen and he was very famous Hadith. He was expert in Tafseer in soccer and everything and especially but the specialty as we all know, is is Hadith Abu Abdullah
Abdullah Abdullah, not even humble a che Danny. This is his full name about the law.
Even humble a che Bernie he was born in Baghdad,
raised in Baghdad, died in Baghdad born raised and died in in Baghdad. His father died while he was very, very young. And his mother when my sisters his mother used to when he was a kid, 10 years old. She used to wake him up. And you know the wife, the woman, they don't have to come to the masjid for pleasure. She used to because his father is dead. She used to walk her son walk her son every single day to pray Fisher in Gmail every single day since he was 10 years old.
As we all know, that are very famous for Imams Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah Imam Malik Rahim Allah Imam Shafi Rahim Allah and Imam Asma humble, but there are many there are many in that there must have was not recorded by the students, but their
their opinions about matters are still valid. Like you remember I will say, we still hear the opinion of I was there I was this was that but his students did not write his his method. Similarly, in answer piano theory, also students did not write but Imam Abu Hanifa and the rest of the fora and their students or the students of their students wrote their mother head And subhanAllah they are still up till now. And
if I ask you I forgot my chocolate in the office. We usually give chocolate away
which is the most adopted method in the world.
Imam Abu Hanifa.
Yes, Hanifa Imam Abu Hanifa. Allah is the most adapted madhhab all over the world the most. But the point I'm mentioning here is
the respect that they have for one another.
I'm gonna quote some of the words and the statements that Imam
Rahim Allah said about his teacher, Imam
who's his man his teacher, Shafi is Imam Shafi. He used to be his student and
he respected him so much that he used to say for 40 years listen Jaquan for 40 years, no night passed, except I made this to rob Barry fairly well he Well, he they win him Hamid, Eben Idris is sheffey
Allahu Akbar, respect and the honor to the teachers. They used to make dua just like he's making art for himself and his father make dua for Imam Shafi Rahim Allah. He used to tell his son Abdullah, because he had a son Abdullah, though the famous one is that Abdullah and Saudi, the sons of Imam Muhammad, they are the ones who took the helm from him. He used to tell his son, just like the son to the word, and just like the health to the human body, this is the Imam Shafi to the ummah.
That just like you cannot live without those two, the Ummah at that time could not live without the Imam Shafi just they cannot be replaced similarly, Imam Shafi cannot be replaced, and Chevy now look at Shafi speaking about Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah He said, When I left doc that now chef is speaking, when I left doc that I did not I did not leave anyone more knowledgeable, well versed, more pious, more righteous than Imam Ahmed. What a great testimony coming from Imam Shafi about Muhammad Rahim Allah
regretfully Kuan unfortunately, the respect was not amongst their followers.
The respect was not amongst their followers. Allah when, no matter what happened, maybe I could have a different opinion with another scholar, another chef, but there's no way it would reach the level to this disrespect one another.
We all no matter what happened at the end of the day, you could train your axe each other even though I disagree with you. In a certain *ing matter. There's nothing wrong with that. But to the reach the level, I curse you or I spread rumors against you, or I try my best to plan all my life. How can I ruin your life? This is not Islam. Look how these you spoke about each other and how much they respected one another. Amazing if you hear the stories about how much they respected and honored each other
Imam Ahmed Rahim Allah at the age of 15, he started seeking knowledge. And he was a very, very bright person, very bright. And not only he was not only satisfied by getting his knowledge from Baghdad, but he also traveled to Harrison to Yemen, to Maghreb seeking all kinds of knowledge and specifically the science of of Hadith. One time he left with yeah, here, no mine. They live together. They live at the same period. Also, he has a majors covered. They went and they said to themselves, we have to travel to Yemen, to study from Imam Abdul Razak. He was the Imam of his time
And the trickier one from Iraq to Yemen is to month whether you know it's a donkey or a camel, and it's very hard trip, two months to seek the help of Hadith. Now one click and nobody's touching it
two months. So on their way to Yemen, they stopped where
was exactly Mecca? The way stuff the McKenna's perform Umrah, while they're performing Umrah. They saw up the result, the one they're going to seek in Yemen to get the knowledge from. So yeah, his friend, the Imam Muhammad friend, he was very happy said hamdulillah hamdulillah Yasha. Can we sit down with you tomorrow? And study, you know, some Hadith? So she said, Yes, Ahmed got upset.
I made the intention when I left
Iraq, that I'm getting the Hadith from Yemen, and I will not get the Hadith except from you.
So yeah, I told him you're asking Allah save you too. I saved you one more month of traveling and headache and you know, cost and he said Subhanallah he loved he loved to go and seek the knowledge. You need to travel for the knowledge no matter what, what does it cost? So Subhanallah Of course, this is Yanni extreme, everybody will say hamdulillah but I mean even other Sheikh which is a great Island, he said hamdulillah Allah Sandra Sandra Zakia Why should you travel there, but he insisted and he traveled to Yemen and sat with Imam Abdul Razak.
With respect to his soccer to his dad, he used to he performed Hajj five times.
Three times walking.
Three out of the five walking from Baghdad three walking and to riding.
his he used to fast Monday and Thursday and the three wide days and listen to this yet one. Why do you think we are discussing somebody after all these years? His son Abdullah and I checked on this information from many sources. Listen to this, especially my younger brothers.
He used to pray 300 raka nit.
He used to sleep after a sharp
and stay to three hours sleeping and then up all the way to measure every single day narrated by his son and he said when he became in his 70s and he became very tired. He lowered it to 100
When is the last time you prayed to be on my brother to Rekha to raka Do you know that up to 615 You still pray tahajjud this time of year, up to 615 You can still pray tahajjud and we know that our solos I sell them told us the best Salaat the best salad after Ferb is the salad of the head good to rock it to rock to rock and sha Allah to light in your grave when you really need it the most. 300 Draka Allah put Baraka under time when we hear these things some of us are saying brother command 300 Durka How could you believe then that Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah used to finish the Quran daily in Ramadan
Baraka that that was when we were going missing in our life, the word Baraka, there's no Baraka, no Baraka in our time, nobody can our children, nobody can our money, nobody can our health, no Baraka, they had Baraka 77 years old, healthy now 50, cholesterol, doctor, all kinds of diseases, and with all this technology Subhanallah they used to be very strong.
300 Taka Wallah here we should feel, and I'm on top of that list. You should feel this big of Allah. That's why we mentioned these people so we can get encouraged. I'm not telling you 300 Allah three divided by 190% discount. Three raka on the Aqua. Let's make it fun tonight, three water, they could be considered PM, if you pray them, if you pray them at night.
He was very poor. His father left him the property that brought 17 There have a month in income. But what 1700 A month, a month for big family. So he used to be very poor, but with all that poverty, he never accepted the gifts of the Salatin.
The Sultan, no gifts, some some fun, no gifts from Khalifa and nothing is accepted. He will never accept anything from them.
He married which is something that if you noticed, it happens a lot with the people of knowledge. They get married very late.
He married at the age of 40. Now
there are many, many clarinet. You know what karamat? What's kind of chromatic the same and
what is the English
miracles is small is
miracles is very strong but it because Margie is not the miracle Cara Maria Annie, it's an honor from Allah subhanaw taala that he gives it to certain people. A very special, very special blessing, but a special destiny.
Yeah, gifted blessing. It's a gifted blessing from Allah subhanaw taala. He had many of them. One of them was a man came to him. His mother, this man's mother was crippled for years years. He came knocking at the door, his wife opened the door. And he said, imagine she said yes. What do you want? He said, Allah. My mother is very, very sick for years. And I've been asking Allah subhanaw taala and she's now in her late age and, and I want him just to make dua for my mother.
I want them to make dua for my mother. So the Imam told him I heard I heard him, you know,
the narration says the man went back home, knocked at the door, his mother opened the door.
Again, there are many, but the ones I'm saying I checked their authenticity. It was narrated by a very well known scholar that only narrate Saya, he said he went back home, the mother opened the door, Allahu Akbar.
A very well known story, again, to check the authenticity.
I found out even though it's very, very common, you see it all over YouTube. Every chef probably said it. And I did not find the real source.
It because it says it's in the oven Josie rahamallah He wrote a book called monoket Ahmed.
All about Imam Muhammad. So he mentioned they saying that they mentioned in that book, but I didn't have enough time to check it still in that book. But many many of you said that story. And the story is about Imam Ahmed. And
one time he was traveling, and
he prayed a shot. And after he finished praying, he did not have a place to stay in that city that he was in. It says it wasn't blood Sham.
And he put his stuff on the floor and he went to sleep. So the one person told him get out of get out of the Masjid. We have to close them.
He said you actually have no place to go. He said get out of the Masjid. So he took his stuff. And he slept at the door of the Masjid. The man came and kicked him And subhanAllah with all this. He was the most well known and him on earth at that time. And he never said Do you know who you're talking to? Do you know who I am? He did not say that. So the man kicked him again from the door who saw that there was a baker across the street.
A baker across the street. So the God or the caretaker of the masjid doing this to Imam Muhammad, he did not know him, either. He did not have any Facebook page or anything. Nobody knows how he looks like. So
he took him and he said you could stay with me tonight. Just wait with me a little bit till I finish
baking so I thanked him so much. And he went inside and watched the man working in his bakery. So the man every time he puts the dough and takes the dough his tongue did not start stop. did not stop for a second stop for a lot of stuff. A lot of stuff, a lot of stuff but Allah a stuffer Allah Allah the Mustafa Allah. So the man was amazed.
The man was amazed. He said, How long have you been doing this? You know what the men told him doing what?
It became his nature is tougher. So this is the fall that you're doing. How long have you been doing it? He said, I don't remember I've been doing it for all my life. He said, did you feel or did you know or what is the fruit?
What was the outcome from this Manchester fire? Did you see anything? He said Wallahi
let me tell you something. I never made a dua except it was answered.
Yeah one lot of stuff for a lot of stuff ah all the time. He said I never made a dua except its answer except one da
said what's that? He said I've been asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for such a long time, your Allah I want to see Imam Medina humble.
So the Imam tears and cried. And he said, not only Allah subhanaw taala answered you that Allah dragged me to your door.
Allahu Akbar, Allah dragged me to your door. This is the fruit of Western faria when the fruit of stuffer we hear forget about the story already told us the great reward of Minister of making a lot of Mr. Farr make a lot of us to fight if you want abundance of risk abundance of provision make a lot of stuff far.
So then of course I will end with the most famous story about Imam which is the manner
the Tribulation and the trial of Imam Muhammad
the Animate said
as Allahu Deen as Allah Who deen the Sadiq young Merida, where as Allah Deen be young woman men.
Allah honored this Deen with Abu Bakr on the day when people left Islam you remember
that with the Zakat Allah honored is of this Deen with Abu Bakr because he stood firm, and Allah honored Islam with Imam Ahmed, when he stood firm in this manner, what is this manner? It's a very, very long story briefly
on his, in his time, the Khalifa was what was the name of the Khalifa we give the first chocolate
I don't know should not
Moon, Moon, Moon.
He was very educated, smart man. But he got into the Greek science and Greek knowledge.
And he started ordering his people, his educated people to translate all the Greek science to a language he can understand that to the language to the Arabic.
So they did. So he got into that intellectual stuff. Plus, in his time, the more Tesla, the more Tesla it's a group of everybody everybody knows what Mr. Tesla, the more Tesla, the remain thinking is everything has to be is like they put the intellect over the Dean logic, logic, intellect over the dean. This is very briefly any and
they were surrounding him. They were surrounding him and they were polluting his thinking with their Aqeedah to the level that he asked
and not asked ordered everybody, every person to switch and adapt the aqidah of the Mattila everybody living on his time
and the main man at that time from the Mattila.
Ibnu every month Evie do add in Evie to add he was the main man and he was the head of the my Tesla.
My brothers my sisters
all you can imagine how many shares
how many Imam how many scholar? How many mostly at that time. They all surrendered except for
they all surrendered for the men for the tribulation that the Quran is back look, the Quran is created. The Quran is a creation of Allah. But we all know as Alison Noah Jamar that the Quran is Cayambe Allah is the word of Allah subhanaw taala they said no Allah does not talk.
They said Allah does not talk it's a long story. Let's get back our point. So
for only four Imams They steadfast to
gave gave him after they were tortured. Yes Kurama clock,
no even Mohammed, no, even Mohammed or Mohammed bin Noah, sorry, Muhammad even no Muhammad even know and even humble the only two who said no, Al Quran, Caleb Allah.
Die died with the same aqidah and he told me
he told him, let me see if I can find it because
and terrestrial your
work had met del halco NACA home lake Limni. Hakuna mink tequila was basically umbrella. Be carefully I'm hammer this is my Basia before I die.
People look up to you
People look up to you and it was true 1000s And hundreds of 1000s Look up to Imam Muhammad highly respected. Be careful, stay steadfast on your opinion, do not bend.
Do not fall in the trap, do not take the bait and he stood first. Imam Muhammad in humble. The arm honored Imam 28 months in jail.
28 months in jail, three Khalifa moon, Al Watterson and work all three of them. They insisted and they persisted that he changed his mind. And there's so many details about what happened to him specifically with democracy. There was an argument he brought him the Matson brought him and he wants to have a debate between him and everybody in the from the Mattila and he shut them up one by one Subhanallah from the Quran. Every time they say something, he answered them right away.
They'd be like, well, let me ask you a question. What's the big deal if somebody say the Quran is macklow Why is such a big fitna that happened many people died many people jailed. Why?
Let me ask you recommend Muhammad answered. He went to the matassa one time and he said, Yamato listen. I was praying yesterday in my in my cell and I prayed to raka in the first truck. I read Cloudera Bill Faruk, second raka kala Aldergrove bananas. And then in the second record, and I finished, I prayed the other two raka I said hamdulillah but I mean, and then I was saying, who will?
Call who will it could not continue? And I looked at the corner, I saw the Quran that so I covered him I buried him. I watched the Quran and I covered them and they buried him.
How could you say that?
The Quran does not die, he said isn't that everything created dies
Can you say fairly?
Subhan Allah, if we say that the Quran is Mukluk This is a gopher
Quran Scrabble, Rahman
Falcon insane. He will say Falcon Quran Allah Mullins.
Many many delille Oulu be Kelly Murthy, Lehi, Tam naughty Michelle Rena Haluk how if the Quran is Mukluk I'm saying your Allah I seek refuge with your words from what you created. So if the Quran is Makau, how did this hadith how did this work?
And there are many, many, many deleted from the Quran that this is not this is not true. And he was so firm Jaquan so firm, until the Khalifa al mutawa kill, came and changed everything back again and released him from the jail. And Imam Ahmed
lived a little bit after that, and he passed away. He died at the age of, of 77. And
they said that around that time, even though he died in the morning, and the Janessa was awesome. Look at the short period of time, 1 million people pray Janessa knows and as Angela Helia knows Janessa in Islam at that time that reached that point in such a period it's such a short period of time, 1 million people pray Janessa on the Imam Muhammad, Muhammad Allah Allah, may Allah have mercy on him and the Allah have mercy on all our mineral alanine. But when one thing one just one thing, because usually because of the time
one lesson I usually bring up many lessons from the story but one lesson why?
How many shoe was on his time?
I challenge any one of you to name one of them.
To name one of them from the people who gave in and said that the hot air is my clue. No one nobody knows anything about it. But because this man, Saba comma Allah.
This is the lesson be truthful with Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah will honor you. We do not know about his money. We do not know about Mr. Muhammad about his property. We know about him and about his steadfastness. When you mentioned him that Mohammed everybody knows his Tibet if it was not because of him. Allahu Allah if you're sitting here today.
He kept out of sunnah Jamar steadfast on on the Huck
Sabha comma Allah. He was truthful, he did not care about anybody. He knows that the Quran was Columbia Law. And now he's not gonna give in and Allah subhanaw taala honored him and his his madhhab is followed by millions of people. So yeah, when living in the West
being bombarded by different theories, by many ideas, ideologies, stick to this Dean, know that you are on the right path and don't let anything shake you.
Dogma Allah, you will find ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala getting you out from things you've never expected just be truthful. Be sincere, I could fake to you, you could fake to me, but you can never fake with Allah subhanaw taala be honest and be sincere with Allah. Allah will honor you stalk Mala, a civic Mala? Why do we know Bilal? Why do we call a black man from that time he was a slave? Why do we call him now our master Bilal? Why sadaqa Allah He was truthful with Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah honored him till the Day of Judgment. May Allah subhanaw taala make us on the Sabbath clean Allah Masha Allah Allah sada clean Allah Masha, Allah Memento Killian Allah, masha Allah and anybody can
walk between Allah I mean you're better than me Alameen wa salam ala and Vienna Muhammad Ali, he was sloppy as mine. I want you to welcome my my beloved brothers, the New Yorkers. I see New York Giants here and then get the Cowboys next to brother
