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

Will you compartmentalize your Islam? Islam is just about having a good heart, or is this just about Salah or Islam? So long as you know, you speak the truth and you're, you know, you'll have good manners, right?

00:00:11--> 00:00:16

Every time we throw one out, but this is what's important, isn't exactly what happened to the woman.

00:00:18--> 00:00:28

He said, don't slam robots and robots. They're not service, Dan, the strongholds of Islam will be undone one after another. Every time one is loosened. People cling on to the next one.

00:00:30--> 00:00:53

The very first of them to be undone will be rulership, ruling by the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the very last of them to be on done is what Sala and Hayden's Muslim says lead to Congo Sarah had to lay out the bottom line, the day of judgment will not start until there it is no longer set in the earth. A lot of law a lot of missionaries anymore.

00:00:54--> 00:01:13

And of course Allah is the ultimate mentioned about last panel. That's right. That's the most obvious fact of Islam reality of Islam that Hamas also came with most recognizable once that's gone, that means nothing is left from Prophethood which means there is no good left in this world. So Allah will destroy this universe of bring about the hereafter.

00:01:15--> 00:01:17

So solar is the first and the last

00:01:18--> 00:01:27

of Islam and of this oma in reality will end their job so that'll open the floor and have some hands on questions and we'll defer the rest of the subjects the following links

00:01:34--> 00:01:47

did it mean now has an affinity with Jimmy Lucia de la ilaha illa de la primera could have Colombian or shadow venom Hamadan also bought a mineral supplements and in Ireland mean are not so funny because everybody Terada

00:01:48--> 00:01:50

Mohammed in Salah Bhavani we're setting up

00:01:53--> 00:01:57

a column in beta open livedata bada Nova now,

00:01:58--> 00:02:25

we begin in the name of a lot, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of mercy all praise and glory belongs to a buttload of the world's indeed of law is deserving of the best effects and the most beautiful phrases. And we testify that none is worthy of worship with Allah alone and the true supreme came along with our embarkment the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam peace and blessings be upon him. He was indeed His Prophet and his servant and His Messenger. Allah sent as a mercy to the workers

00:02:27--> 00:02:36

just resist the fight the truth The words are the words of Allah, the great glorious for an anniversary of guidance, the student, an example of the Messenger of Allah, Mohammed, some of our body.

00:02:37--> 00:02:44

And the most dangerous matters, the newly added matters into the religion for every single one of them has led the story that only leads to the fire.

00:02:45--> 00:03:00

To begin, welcome everybody back to this, which shall be our second session on the BSO heavy initiative. Right. So the series that we had began, and I know I had skipped last month's visit, and I apologize for that.

00:03:01--> 00:03:09

We began a series of talks to entitled VSO have be a companion of the Prophet Muhammad Salah Bhagwati.

00:03:10--> 00:03:14

And we began that first lecture by saying that

00:03:15--> 00:04:00

so have a May Allah be pleased with him, the companions of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were the Model Generation that outlaw out of his mercy provided his own noise. There was never a generation more virtuous than them. nor was there ever a generation that understood Islam better than them, nor anyone, any generation that ever enjoyed Islam with enjoy Islam. So they are the gateway to Islam, and they are the security policy for Islam. This talk inshallah tonight will be a continuation of that, just to bring to light the necessity of that security policy. why it's so important to track down the footprints of the Sahaba the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi

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

wasallam, and to scoop our Islam from where they scooped from and to understand our Islam the way they understood it, and to have the same method and approach towards understanding Islam as

00:04:16--> 00:04:24

we all know that Allah subhanho wa Taala created us with this perfect wisdom for a very lofty objective

00:04:25--> 00:04:44

and a very extensive wisdom in and of itself and that is just us. Let me holla pal Mota will hire attorney Abu Mohammed, he is the one who created that and live to test you which of your best in deeds. So this life

00:04:45--> 00:04:50

from its beginning to its end, all of it is for a test. There is no exception

00:04:51--> 00:04:55

on every level and on different magnitudes, but it's still a test.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

Before one test ends the next test has already begun.

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

The nature of this life, even in times of ease, when you're not being tested, that's a test, are you going to be grateful? Right? But when we think tests many times we think that our wants us with poverty or with riches, with disease or with health, right?

00:05:17--> 00:05:30

There is another entire category of tests. And those are the tests regarding the information that he sends down to you the facts that he revealed to you, how are you going to deal with them understood.

00:05:32--> 00:05:46

Because a person can see a lover or center of relation down and I've been guided hamdulillah I've been guided to Islam, I'm a Muslim. But the Muslim is the one who says 17 times a day guide me to the straight path.

00:05:48--> 00:05:48

Why?

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

Because especially in light

00:05:53--> 00:06:15

of what we're talking about, hear this information, being guided to the revelation of Islam and conforming to the revelation of Islam happens on two levels. guidance is on two degrees, there's guidance to Islam guidance to the path to the straight path. And then there is guidance within the path

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

within your Islam.

00:06:20--> 00:07:06

A person wants to get to a certain destination, there's a certain path that he needs to take. Identifying that. And getting on to it is not the end of the road is if you want to get to New York, you need to know that you take among other routes, perhaps the 78th, you take the 78 heading east and you know you found the path that's it. And you've gotten onto the path can that gets you to New York, without you being guided within the path to make sure you're following the speed limits and look out for the slopes and the turns. Okay, just close your eyes once you're on the path. So guidance happens on two levels. There is guidance to the path to Islam which is the straight path

00:07:06--> 00:07:10

then there is guidance within Islam within that straight path.

00:07:15--> 00:07:15

The narrative

00:07:17--> 00:07:20

reported at the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:07:22--> 00:07:25

he drew a line one day in the ground a path

00:07:27--> 00:07:31

and then he drew the verging lines departing from it.

00:07:32--> 00:07:38

And then he turned to the competitor he said to them has a parippu law This is the path of Allah

00:07:40--> 00:07:43

what had the superluminova Federico

00:07:44--> 00:07:51

and these are hats that are diverge Jeep descending the parts in opposite directions.

00:07:53--> 00:08:03

Allah Cooley Serbian shavon Yeah, Drew la on every one of these paths going the wrong way, is a devil, a shavon, inviting to it.

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

And then he recited the verse of almost apana What are

00:08:11--> 00:08:17

one of the most happy man who who while at that time euro Subala

00:08:18--> 00:08:28

Avi coumarins Amelie, and this here is my straight path. So follow it, and do not follow the other paths

00:08:29--> 00:08:34

that would divert you from my path from the path of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:36--> 00:08:45

And if you notice, even in this area, just to bring to mind once again, the point of the lecture, the necessity of digging out the path of the companions regarding their Islam.

00:08:47--> 00:09:04

And this is my path, follow it don't follow the other paths. So the path of guidance was mentioned the singular whereas the many multiple paths of misguidance were mentioned in the plural. And this is always the case. The path of truth is one.

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

And the paths of falsehood are plenty.

00:09:10--> 00:09:36

of muscle paradoxes, another iron operand of madhubani you live in Amman, Mama is the guardian and the guide and the protector the ally, the supporter of the people of faith and believers. You read you may not follow magic either No. He removes them from the darkness is different. Many multiple to the lights will levena care for olio Babu,

00:09:37--> 00:09:45

Amina Nuri Illa nomads and the disbelievers their allies are the false gods

00:09:46--> 00:09:50

that pull them out from the light to many different darknesses

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

Allah subhanho data elsewhere third place in the poor I was speaking about the light of guidance and the darkness of

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

misguidance he said blue metal and Barbuda for

00:10:07--> 00:10:38

their layers of darkness once on top of another. So pitch black that of a person wants to pull his hand out the most familiar thing to him. Sometimes he can recognize it right? You can't even see someone had a night locked the moon without any streetlights. Darkness is one level over and over, if a person were to pull out his hand, you wouldn't be able to see it. Woman lemmya jalila boo, boo neuron family and whoever Allah does not grant a light to there'll be no light.

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

Imagine others they narrate

00:10:46--> 00:10:52

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the Jews have divided into 71 groups.

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

All of them in the fire except one.

00:10:58--> 00:11:13

And the Christians have divided the 72 groups all of them the fire baton, right those upon the original teachings. And my my nation as well will divide into 73 groups, all of them in the fire except to one.

00:11:15--> 00:11:19

So 72 out of 73 are those diverging paths.

00:11:21--> 00:11:24

And this heading is authenticated why in the army

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

and

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

others.

00:11:29--> 00:12:11

So this is our discussion, we're studying the path of the soul have a security policy to make sure we're part of that one out of the 73 to make sure we're part of that, save the SEC, if you will. So we can save ourselves and our families and educate the world around us. And this subject I know comes automatically with many seven sensitivities. You know, some throughout the history of Islam, they they found this hadith to be problematic. Because they said how can that be when the oma of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the majority of the people of Paradise write this it makes it seem like no one's gonna make it.

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

First of all, by way of transmission, the hate is authentic. And this argument that was posed against the Hadith or obscene problematic with the idea doesn't stand it's not in reality, a problem. Why? Because first of all, the home of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam will indeed be the majority of the people of Paradise, because he was the only prophet First of all, whose nation was not just in his time and his locale, he was the one that Allah distinguished him by sending him to all of humanity, that's first of all. Second of all, a person should not presume that these 72 groups, the number of people in each group are the same as the number in the 73rd group is

00:12:54--> 00:13:09

that they're not all equal, not by the bounty of Allah, the pure understanding of Islam, that is what matches with the filter. That is what people are born upon. And that is the vast majority of this oma is upon the way of the certainly the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

And also

00:13:15--> 00:13:57

it's understood from the many texts in the Quran and the pseudonym, that just because the Hadith says a person is in the fire, means they are qualified by virtue of that crime, that virtue that's in that verse, by virtue of that deviance of being in the fire, does it mean for sure they will be in the fire. And it does not mean they will they will spend forever in the fire if they enter the fight. Understand. So when, for example, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, no one will enter Paradise. So long as there's an atom's with arrogance in his heart, meaning he does not qualify for paradise like that. Understood, but Allah so paradise may forgive them, or he may have

00:13:57--> 00:14:01

other good deeds that make up for this band, the end of the day, it scales, isn't it?

00:14:05--> 00:14:27

And so the default rule, by the way, all throughout, is that when Allah subhanho wa Taala, promises something, he will always do what he promises. But when he threatens with something, then it's up to him. That's not dishonesty, right? It's up to him, whether he carries it out, or he includes it in his benevolence at his mercy, so kind of one's on.

00:14:28--> 00:14:59

And also of the things we need to say about this Heidi being seen as you know, one that should be avoided, and one that you know, is overly sensitive and you know, steps on toes. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this would happen. So it's a reality. So when it's there, a person shouldn't just ignore it. Right? We're not dividing the Muslims by talking about us, nor is that our intent, nor should that ever be understood. We love them for everyone guidance, and it pains us to hear that or not.

00:15:00--> 00:15:27

Muslim, what about a Muslim or non Muslim identified, we will not love that for anyone. That's part of the personality of the believer that he inherits from his prophets, Allah love audios. But ultimately there's going to be people that go down that road. So we're just going to ignore that road is there. You know, the beautiful quote I read years ago and stuck with me, they said, What is worse, a baby that's afraid of the dark, or adult that's afraid of the lightens. You know,

00:15:28--> 00:15:42

a person has all the symptoms, they're to believe something's a reality, he doesn't want to believe he doesn't want to go check out check it out. He has all the symptoms of diabetes, he doesn't want to go to the doctor because he doesn't want to hear you have diabetes. Right.

00:15:44--> 00:16:25

So this is an issue of area of reality. And also something that has to be mentioned about the sensitivity of the subject, is that these sects that divided they divided on matters of the dean that we're not excusable, like, who Allah is, like, what would the definition of faith is right? What the Quran is, these are not referring to, for example, the Hanafi, and Schaeffer and Maliki and hanbali schools of Islamic law that differed on how to interpret the surgeon text or otherwise write the we're not talking about the differences on this, the technicalities of the prayer are the same, you're divorced three times in one sit down equals a divorce, or the wiping on the socks is allowed

00:16:25--> 00:16:47

or not. And we're not talking about that at all right? These are all tolerable acceptable differences of opinion that do not harm in any way. We're talking about something that comes way before that a matter of principle. And Allah subhanaw taala, once again, he had a wisdom for allowing these divisions to occur, to test us how we're going to react to them, while

00:16:49--> 00:16:58

they're going to never cease being divided humanity until the day of judgment. Well, I will I can imagine several partner, Rob Baker.

00:16:59--> 00:17:11

And we're not for a decision from your Lord that had preceded the fully obey now he would have ended the disputes. But he wished for these disputes to exist to test us how we're going to react to them.

00:17:12--> 00:17:20

So let's let's get to the dispute. So there's 73 doors, all of them lead to the fire, except for one.

00:17:22--> 00:18:01

And we there's no way to figure out which way that one is, right? absolutely wrong. There's definitely a way to figure it out. But it is indeed requiring of you to live up to the test, and dedicate seriousness to it. Because consider a few factors, six factors that will make this test most difficult and most worthy of your determined investigation. The first of them is that the probability of you being right by guessing is one out of 73. Right? That's a problem. Already, the odds are against you percentage wise

00:18:03--> 00:18:09

number to each of these 7273 have each of these doors

00:18:11--> 00:18:23

has someone standing there and advocate for it that calls to it and says paradises this way, and you pick any other door, you're going to the fire, they all say the same thing, everyone's stories, their rights.

00:18:24--> 00:18:26

Everyone's always they're following the Quran in the pseudonym.

00:18:27--> 00:18:32

Right, all those 70 if you say Paul Allen, certainly because he said my mobile divided 73

00:18:33--> 00:18:39

meaning whoever rejects the final as soon as I'm part of his own movement to begin with, they don't accept his religion to begin with. Right.

00:18:40--> 00:18:54

As the poet he says, culinary wassalam la la la la la la, la, de la, right, Laila as this woman that place was in love with right in famous Arabic folklore, not folklore, it was reality. First Century century

00:18:55--> 00:19:21

signalman. So he says, and everyone claims to know later everyone claims that he knows they know this girl. It's a metaphor we use throughout the centuries. And Leyland does not approve of any of that, like a celebrity everyone swears that, you know the celebrity she knows me. And if you ask her, she doesn't know any of it. Right? Like what everyone's where's this and I got the keys to paradise, right?

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

And if you are,

00:19:24--> 00:19:52

in reality, this is not the key. That's the second problem. The third problem is that you can't judge a book by its cover. It's not that easy, right? Seeing these people these advocates with the Prophet sallallahu rollinson called definitely calling to each of these paths in and of itself is convincing before they even open their lips. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam foretold that a people will come out from the Sumerians knowledge came out and their effects remain until this very day,

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

however, is the rebels those that call the Muslims disbelievers by because of a Cindy commits

00:20:00--> 00:20:15

They call me a Muslim, an apostate and is believer because he commits a sin. And they call for rebellion against the Muslim ruler to the end of it. He said to the likes of our work and a room of the greatest of the companions, one of you will be little his prayer to their prayer

00:20:16--> 00:20:41

and his fasting to their fasting, his recitation, how much he recycle, compared to how much they recycle. And he said, these are the dogs of the people of the fire. And you imagine, because I have no no regard for the sanctity of human blood, no regard for the virtuosity of the companions, no regard for the students of Mohammed Salah Lavanya. He was in no regard for the Muslims themselves.

00:20:43--> 00:21:05

if not worse when these people came out, and they call the reflective and offend the third Caliph, not even that not the fourth, Calvin's two companions, disbelievers in our best one of the greatest students of the province of love are names that have went out to their camp and how a lot isn't where I entered their camp. There's about 20,000 when you went to debate them verbatim the theology he said you hear in their tents at night like the buzzing of bees. I

00:21:06--> 00:21:10

mean, they're reciting reciting reciting their devout worshippers at face value.

00:21:11--> 00:21:21

He said some of them up on the hill send them the wrong lesson about them. You have Corona boo Anna la uj with Rihanna Jiro. They recite the poor and it does not pass their throats no understanding.

00:21:23--> 00:21:35

And even years later, the Californian Zoo he used to say about a man and one of the the earliest leading philosophers who established a sector as part of establishing a second oldest democracy.

00:21:36--> 00:21:47

His name is Amina Ravi, the great Caliph was mesmerized by him and he brought him close and used to say who lukumi m shiroi kulu Kumari mostly

00:21:48--> 00:22:14

used to flatter him and comfort him with poetry. He would say all of you walk around the Earth strolling, all of you are looking for birds, to hundreds. I mean, you guys are taking your time no one's serious about their religion like this guy. Right? It looks impressive. All of you will stroll about in the earth is what the poetry means. All of you are just gazing around for your hunt for your game to pre targeted practice on except for amateur memorabilia.

00:22:16--> 00:22:25

They had a mark on his forehead, it looked like the knee of a goat from how much you would prostrate how rough his skin was for me. And this is one of the heads of deviance and this time.

00:22:26--> 00:22:28

So that's factor number three, that seeing that could be convincing.

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

Like the fire is otherwise.

00:22:36--> 00:22:48

And then number four is that when they do open their lips, when they finally do start speaking, they're eloquent. And they could have an argument especially you don't know any better. That makes it even more difficult to know.

00:22:49--> 00:23:29

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in APA format, haha for Allah. Allah image alone. The greatest thing I fear for you are the misguiding leaders that will be appointed over you those that cannot be trusted, but you assume that they can be trusted. And he said some of law and another narration of my offer on a common African alimony son, the greatest thing I fear for you as a hypocrite who's eloquent with his tongue. And he said some of our audience another had eliminated by NSA. Indeed, in the ability to articulate is the power of magic, right? Can someone get you to pull the money out of your pocket? Right? A good salesman? Can he do it indeed, in the ability to

00:23:29--> 00:23:36

articulate is the power of sorcery, the fine art of persuading your desires known as advertising, right?

00:23:37--> 00:23:41

So when they do speak, they're very, very, very eloquent.

00:23:43--> 00:23:43

You know,

00:23:45--> 00:23:48

one of the one of the scholars, he mentions that

00:23:50--> 00:23:56

they brought forth one of also these Muslim philosophers. And they asked him to give a sermon

00:23:58--> 00:24:07

in front of a great audience of Royals, and he had a list, you know, you have a list, you can't pronounce all the letters of the alphabet. He couldn't pronounce the letter wrong.

00:24:09--> 00:24:32

And if he that would have been heard about him, that discredits you you're not someone that deserves to be, you know, the cleric of the Sultan, right? In reality is not 13 Islam, but the point is, you wouldn't be held in a hierarchy automatically, you'd be dismissed. He gave a sermon, some of the stories recorded in writing approximately 15 minutes long of top of his head without using the letter wrong.

00:24:34--> 00:24:39

Can you imagine this guy sitting in front of you talking to you, you're going to be convinced.

00:24:41--> 00:24:42

And then number five,

00:24:44--> 00:24:56

is that there are sources when they speak, or the planet the sun, right niharika Korean Muslim the prophet SAW Selim spoke about the end times and the confusion that will occur at the End Times.

00:24:58--> 00:25:00

He said some above us and then there was

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

Arise there are two Nana Abby Johanna callers at the gates of the hellfire.

00:25:08--> 00:25:35

Mina Jabba from La Habana. foofy whoever responds to them he's they're called they will throw cast him into the fire. So they will describe them to us so we can take guard who are these people? What are they like? Carla whom minjee Latina, waiata qalamoun Avi Addison Athena, they are from our skins. They just are just like us. They look just like us. And they speak with our tongues they use the same evidences we use the same arguments we use,

00:25:37--> 00:25:40

in their callers at the gates of the fire will ever be loved.

00:25:42--> 00:25:47

And I'll give you a quick example. One of them has mentioned that

00:25:51--> 00:26:03

he'll come to you and he'll tell you, for example, forget how consequentialist debate is or not just think about what if I told you right now I can prove to you from the Quran and the Sunnah, that this cockroach is a prophet

00:26:04--> 00:26:06

that the cockroaches have profits.

00:26:07--> 00:26:11

This was a this was an actual sec. Historically speaking

00:26:13--> 00:26:15

subhanho wa Taala says

00:26:16--> 00:26:27

that there is no nation on this earth. Nor is there a flock of birds that fly about with their wings illuma Moon and accelerate their nations just like you

00:26:29--> 00:26:44

and elsewhere in the world. No muscle panda or dialysis? autolysis What do you mean? Oh mesin illa Allah Fie Hannah v. And there is no nation except that a warner was sent to it. So are there wonders now for the birds in the cockroach in the middles? According to suya, yes or no.

00:26:46--> 00:27:04

And that brings number six that we don't know any better. Right. We haven't studied we haven't given this subject any seriousness yet. So now that I've drawn the atmosphere of how difficult it is, it's impossible. No, it's not impossible. Do you think that our profits of a mop on a new cell

00:27:05--> 00:27:19

is going to teach us about every single thing big and small and leave the most important subject how to get safely to Allah? unidentified right, we also have as the answer, isn't it, you know,

00:27:20--> 00:27:21

he says

00:27:22--> 00:27:33

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam died when he died and there was not a bird left in the sky except that he informed us something about he told us I don't understand the whole world around us. You know?

00:27:35--> 00:27:56

You know, even the non Muslims recognize about those who haven't Muslim, the collection. The Jews came to sell manufacture see the companion in the province awesome. And they said in a vehicle lapada Lemma una Vu kukula enheten. Farah, your Prophet, what's up with your religion? Your prophet teaches you everything, even how to use the bathroom.

00:27:57--> 00:27:58

So Selma,

00:27:59--> 00:28:08

really pleased with him, he said, Yes, he taught us not to face the direction of prayer, or to turn our back to it when we're urinating or defecating.

00:28:10--> 00:28:15

And to not cleanse ourselves out of the bedroom, in the bathroom with our right hands,

00:28:16--> 00:28:18

and not cleanse ourselves with dried

00:28:20--> 00:28:25

rot, meaning droppings of animals, and don't use less than three stones and he gave him the roots.

00:28:26--> 00:28:32

So our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he just to that degree, and he's the one that told us and I like who

00:28:34--> 00:28:41

I am to you, like a father to teach you. So he's not going to teach us how to get out of this one out of 73

00:28:42--> 00:29:16

dilemma. He said to us and why am I left out the end of the purpose. And my nation will divide in 73 seconds, all of them in the file except for one. They said which one or messenger of Allah? He said what I am upon today, underline the word today right? What I am upon today, me and my companions. Right? What am I doing today me and my companions. And in the height of our development sadly that we mentioned in the previous session, the prophets of Allah for Allah Himself said whoever lives after me will see many differences. It's exactly what we see.

00:29:18--> 00:29:22

We'll see many differences. So this is the prescription for what we're living

00:29:24--> 00:29:31

whoever lives will see many differences so what do we do ignore the differences act like they're not there? Throw out our religion for the sake of unit What do we do?

00:29:33--> 00:29:37

He said filing fee so stick to my way was

00:29:38--> 00:29:38

rushing

00:29:41--> 00:29:44

out to LA have been with Yahoo

00:29:45--> 00:29:48

for in akula polarity free now

00:29:49--> 00:29:58

stick to my way and the way the traditional way rightly guided caliphs. So have the companions and be aware of

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

all

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

knew and he said, bite onto your teeth and be aware of the newly invented matters meaning in the religion, for every single newly invented matter, innovation is in the fire.

00:30:11--> 00:30:22

You know, we all agree, all Muslims agree that if the Prophet the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam was alive today, he would be able to solve all of our problems right around

00:30:24--> 00:30:43

him returning to us, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in effect is not very far fetched, because he left everything here. And our love preserved it all, and even embodied in a generation that showed us practically how it worked, right, these companions, this is such a blessing.

00:30:44--> 00:30:53

And he turned away from the way of the companions, it is truly, truly, truly a betrayal of that legacy done for us, you know,

00:30:54--> 00:30:58

and this is an example who has given us really worth considering.

00:30:59--> 00:31:02

I'm not talking about the four ad being preserved,

00:31:03--> 00:31:07

or even the words of the prophet who brought the poor and being preserved.

00:31:08--> 00:31:13

The words of this Sahaba were preserved authentically.

00:31:14--> 00:31:19

We know exactly what this companion said, what he didn't say many, many, many instances beyond counting,

00:31:20--> 00:31:46

meaning our narrations of the companions are more authentic than the actual book, The Holy Book of the other religions. Think about that. We're not comparing the Bible or the Quran in terms of preservation throughout history, not even the Bible to the pseudonym, the not even the Bible to the way of the companions, because the way of the companions is more authentically documented, and even though the Bible itself

00:31:48--> 00:32:02

and is something agreed upon, even by their scholars by their scholarship, so person to turn away from that enormous blessing. You know, every religion claims that we are the right group, and we are orthodox, and we are the classical version, but there's no way to verify.

00:32:05--> 00:32:39

And so Allah Subhana, Allah preserved for us and mechanism. So when we're studying this subject, now, we're so happy, we're studying the method, the methodology for our lives, like what's your method? How do you go about understanding your religion? The religion has been preserved. Now the understanding, even the understanding was preserved? Because think about it. If Allah didn't preserve for us the understanding of Islam, then he didn't preserve for us Islam, did he Islam could mean 101 different things than what's the beauty of it? What's the difference between Islam and the philosophy of Plato? Right. They all agree that beauty is right. And justice is right. And truth is

00:32:39--> 00:32:46

right. And brotherhood fraternity is right. And common welfare. We all agree on all that. All of us. So what's so special about Islam?

00:32:47--> 00:32:58

That down to the details, it's been defined for us and lived by a generation and has proven itself pass the test of time, the test of criticism and test of corruption, all of it

00:32:59--> 00:33:01

is to turn a blind eye to all that

00:33:02--> 00:33:10

is someone jeopardizing themselves, the problem is often didn't leave us to pick those 73 doors, or go through what the other nations went through.

00:33:12--> 00:33:30

And so before we embark on picking a way to understand our Islam, we have to check if that was the way of our prophets of autism and the companions so that we don't waste our lives. By the way, we don't waste our lives embarking on a path that could be the wrong path. We took an exit or a detour that wasn't the right way off of that path.

00:33:32--> 00:33:37

You know, some of the early Muslims were asked what is the scariest verse in the book of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:33:39--> 00:33:57

And they said, we'll have a bill who will have surina am Allah Allah Vina baldassari oufit hayati, dounia omya una una Sana, tell them all Mohammed Shah not inform you of the greatest losers, the greatest failures, the greatest wastes with regards to their needs.

00:33:58--> 00:34:15

Those that their deeds, their efforts were in vain. They're striving they're actually striving in vain in the life of this world, while presuming that they were doing good deeds, presuming that their deeds were an excellence. And that's why will you be

00:34:16--> 00:34:25

a US Attorney. He says, in them and xylitol had a large army and you want to Island the island medicine. Indeed,

00:34:26--> 00:34:27

it is from

00:34:28--> 00:34:54

a love wishing well for a person when they are young, or when they first come into Islam, to direct them to a person of knowledge from the people of the Sun and the original way of Islam for the shortcuts right. So he doesn't try all the doors and voice is like these are the signs that are what love somebody. It gives them the proper understanding of the dean. And before you the pros are certain himself said that behind the morality of the

00:34:55--> 00:34:57

maturity level be higher

00:34:58--> 00:35:00

as well for them. He gives

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

than the proper perspective the proper understanding of the deen

00:35:05--> 00:35:44

and also in the show the Rahim Allah He says in Surah Mattila, Allah shall be the Nazca, and you saw him as soon as he asked me to Allah, indeed is from the favor of Allah on the young person, once he comes up becomes of age that he finds next to him someone's a companion from the people of the sooner people in the way of the promises to carry him to put him upon that, and usefulness. Well, for him, one of the greatest scholars of the early Muslims of the tethering material, he says, can be a pedestrian or a failure of any level fan. He says, My father was a patent attorney and the people that's

00:35:45--> 00:36:24

the opposite of a hard determinist in philosophy, the people that don't believe in fate at all, nothing is fated. This is one of the groups right that God doesn't know until it happens. It's one of the groups that one you know, infatuated with a certain philosophy and they wanted to subordinate Islam to that philosophy. So my father was a pastor he believed in that concept regarding this. And my my paternal uncle dororo awful they were Shiites. twelver Shia those that reject long story right, the Shiites, right, the more extreme group of the Shiites in particular, that awful he has so and I must save me with Sophia. And he said to me, so if you're an authority,

00:36:26--> 00:36:33

and he, Allah guided me through him, he said, that scholar my way I discovered him early on early enough in my life.

00:36:34--> 00:36:50

And I'm going to close in five minutes to open the floor for questions. We know that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most merciful person when it came to somebody struggling with applying the religion.

00:36:53--> 00:37:08

So for example, the man said, O Messenger of Allah, a woman and everything by accident gives me permission to do with adultery, like permits me I can't control myself. Permit me to commit adultery. He took him silver bars and would you like it for your Monday? Would you like it for your daughter? Would you like it for your arms? Would you like it for your own external internal?

00:37:10--> 00:37:44

No, likewise, the people wouldn't like it for their mother nor for their daughter nor for their aunts. And then he's also to put his hand on his chest at all, but forgive his sin and cure his chest and protect his private words. And the narrator has the man never turned to women again. Right? I mean, he wasn't bothered anymore. He was able to control himself there after walking the streets in the marketplaces in the likes. We know for example, Hayden, Addison huadian was, the prophet SAW Selim sees a man a Bedouin, he doesn't know that the ethics of town life city life he comes into the masjid he's used to it from the desert he's a better one, you pick a corner there are

00:37:44--> 00:37:48

no corners just urinate anyone. He came into the mosque of the Bronx living here and it's

00:37:49--> 00:37:59

facing a pole uncovered himself lifted his garments into urinate and also have other competitors we're about to attack you right now just someone walks into the room

00:38:00--> 00:38:04

or takes up certain buckling his belt and knees just picking a corner right?

00:38:05--> 00:38:30

Until today even we know that had teeth and we're still like, No way man. It's hard to control it. It's also habit. We're going to jump on it. Let's remove don't cut off his let him finish. This was from his wisdom and his gentleman's he knew the man didn't know at all also, because if you chase a man down was urinating, because he's dirty. He's got dirty more of the mystery isn't right. urinating in running? More staining, isn't it?

00:38:32--> 00:38:36

From his wisdoms also learn from his mercy, right. He didn't hold against what he did not know.

00:38:41--> 00:39:18

And also the man who kept drinking wine time and time again, time and time again, the punishment was carried out on him. Until finally a companion said how wicked is e mail lockers and how many times you get to get brought back and arrested for the same crime. The problems are solved that don't curse for indeed he loves a one is missing. Meaning these are struggles that people have the means we all face our different demons, who sins we're trying to get past day in and day out. He was merciful with all of that. So Allahu alayhi wa sallam. And we know that this is known. But when it came to the issues of how you understand your deen, he was much stricter.

00:39:19--> 00:39:28

And that was part of His mercy. By the way. I just wanted to show you the contrast. Right? Whoever is not interested in my sooner is not of me. He said So Allah

00:39:29--> 00:39:44

is the one who pulled into the arrogant and the enemy and the adulterer and the drunkard all of that it is hard to comment all of that. But he tell him whoever is not interested, whoever turns away arrogantly and rightfully diamonds interest who doesn't want it. He's not

00:39:45--> 00:39:48

all of them in the fire except one when it comes to this issue.

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

He was much stricter, you know why? Because unless you have a proper understanding of Islam, this is where the mercy comes in. You will not be able to handle Islam

00:40:01--> 00:40:07

You destroying yourself, by building for yourself and your own system that you're fond of,

00:40:09--> 00:40:22

and thinking that's going to save you, or that's going to be accepted of you. So there had to be some seriousness there out of mercy for them, right, it called for it. I'll give you a quick example. Those who disagreed on the meaning of faith.

00:40:24--> 00:40:38

Some of those affected by the theology of the Christians said, you're saved by your faith, meaning you're saved by grace and this is a very wide misunderstanding that exists in the world that your faith is in the heart. It doesn't matter what your actions do.

00:40:42--> 00:41:21

I'm not gonna ask you what the Muslims but those that the Muslims got this understanding from what was the result of that misunderstanding regarding faith faith is in here doesn't matter what you do that they do everything, don't they? So long as they come on Sunday and they cry and they feel good about themselves they keep it moving, don't they? So this misunderstanding is a disaster in and of itself. When people have a misunderstanding on this thing, whether Allah distance everything or things are divorced, the control of everything isn't that what causes people to fall into despair isn't caused people to become lazy and think I can't do it. Right, not productive you will meet the

00:41:21--> 00:41:32

understanding is the pad from which your Islam launches. So without that proper understanding, Islam is not going to be handleable for you, right not gonna be possible for you to endless

00:41:33--> 00:42:02

and from the mercy of a lot of this is that this initiative to be so happy to revive for yourself, for anyone and those that you love so we can all worship Allah correctly, and be able to receive right and handle this perfect balanced religion, your perfect Islam, the original Islam, the only Islam, Allah has allowed in every generation there to be people that carry this understand.

00:42:04--> 00:42:22

Even though others may disagree with them, and others may falsely accused them and others may build campaigns against them, they always exist. And sorry, Muslim men elsewhere, the heightened narrative by German and so many others. He said some of mahadi who was sending them

00:42:23--> 00:42:31

letters to me who met Seattle have a very light, man Holla Holla from Pattaya boy,

00:42:33--> 00:42:49

they will never stop being a group of my own of my nation, apparent upon the truth, not being harmed by those that dis those that oppose them, or those that betrayed them, until the affair of our law is fulfilled.

00:42:50--> 00:43:01

So they will always be there. But notice also that it says there it will never stop meaning it started all the way from the beginning. That's the extension of the way of the Sahaba may Allah be pleased with them.

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

So we'll end here and that was the gist of why we're studying now. The way of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why it's such an assessment spoke about their virtue and why they understand better and why I was pleased with them and what we know about them. And now our need to rush back to that That was today's session. From then on out inshallah we'll discuss bits, landmarks, milestones of our habit, understood the matters of belief how those will have understood the matters of law, how do you approach the rules in Islam, the the issues of ethics, right, the issues of purification, spirituality, purifying the heart, all of that one session at a

00:43:43--> 00:43:48

time and childless panel with Allah, if Allah permits for us the length of life to do so.

00:43:51--> 00:43:52

very hungry.
