Well you compartmentalize your Islam. Islam is just about having a good heart or Islam is just about solid or Islam so long as you know, you speak the truth and you're, you know, you have good manners, right? Every time we throw one out and see but this is what's important, isn't exactly what happened to the woman.
He said, Don't call the oval Islam room, whatever, oh, then lots of Islam, the strongholds of Islam will be undone one after another. Every time one is loosened. people cling on to the next one.
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 undone is what salah and the haters like Muslim says led to Canosa Hatzalah U haul without the Allah Allah, the Day of Judgment will not start until there it is no longer set in the earth. Allah Allah Allah as I mentioned the earth anymore.
And of course salah is the ultimate mention of Allah subhanho wa Taala right that's the most obvious fact of Islam reality of Islam that Mohamed Salah came with most recognizable once that's gone that means nothing is left from prophethood which means there's no good left in this world. So Allah will destroy this universe of bring about the hereafter.
So Salah is the first and the last
of Islam and of this ummah in reality will then their job lies though they will open the floor and awesome hands went up about questions and all the further rest of the subjects in the following weeks. Probably

we begin in the Name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy All Praise and glory belongs to Allah, Lord of the Worlds indeed Allah is deserving of the best of things, and the most beautiful of precepts. And we testify that none is worthy of worship with Allah alone true supreme came along with our impartment 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 world.
Just as we testified, the choice of words are the words of ALLAH, the great Glorious Quran and the best of guidance, the Sunnah, the example of the Messenger of Allah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the most dangerous matters, the newly added matters into the religion for every single one of them is a leading astray that only leads to the fire.
To begin with welcome everybody back to this, which John Locke will be our second session on the VSO 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.
We began a series of talks between titled VSO, how to be a companion being of the Prophet Muhammad Salah why they use them. And we began that first lecture by saying that the Sahaba may Allah be pleased with them, the Companions of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were the model generation, that Allah out of His mercy provided this ummah with, 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 enjoyed Islam. So they are the gateway to Islam, and they are the security policy for Islam. This talk in sha Allah 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 salallahu alayhi salam, 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 needed.
We all know that Allah subhanho wa Taala created us with this perfect wisdom for a very lofty objective
and a very extensive wisdom in and of itself and that is it just us. Let me holla foul mouth I will hire attorney Abdullah Kuma Yocum axon Ramana. He is the One who created that life to test you which of your best in deeds so this life
from its beginning to its end, all of it is a test. There is no exception
on every level and on different magnitudes, but it's still a test.
Before one test that is the next test has already begun.
That's 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 Allah says with poverty or with riches, with disease or with health, right?
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.
Because a person can say, Allah who sent the revelation 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.
Because especially in light
of what we're talking about to 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
within your Islam.
A person wants to get to a certain destination, there's a certain path that he needs to take. Identifying that path and getting onto it is not the end of the road isn't. If you want to get to New York, you need to know that you take among other routes, perhaps the 78, 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 pad to make sure you're following the speed limits and look out for the slopes and the turns. Okay, you 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, then there is guidance within Islam within that straight path.
And even within the setting, the narrative of Allah Massoud or the Allah one reported that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
he drew a line one day in the ground a path
and then he drew diverging lines departing from it.
And then he turned to the competitor and he said to them, had a peninsula this is the path of Allah.
What had the pseudo moto Federica
and these are hats that are diverging descending the parts in opposite directions.
I could only say VLAN Shavon Yeah, Drew la on every one of these paths going the wrong way, is a devil, a Shavon, inviting to it.
And then he recited the verse of Allah subhanho wa taala. And Susan, one has set off the Musa pm and Debbie Rowe who wallet Debbie Rasulullah for the for Robbie commands and me and this here is my st. So follow it and do not follow the other paths
that would divert you from my path from the Path of Allah subhanho wa taala.
And if you notice, even in this is 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.
And this is my path, follow it don't follow the other paths. So the path of guidance was mentioned in 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
and the paths of falsehood are plenty.
Allah subhanaw That is another ayah in the Quran. Allahu Allah, you live in Amman, Allah is the guardian and the guide and the protector the ally, the supporter of the people of faith and believers. You create your home minute God Almighty Allah No. He removes them from the darkness is different many multiple to the lights will levena Cafaro Lel who will bubble up June a human annuity Elon nomads and the disbelievers their allies are the false gods
that pull them out from the light to many different darknesses
and Allah subhanho data elsewhere a third place in the Quran was speaking about the light of guidance and the darkness of
misguidance he sent a little Mattoon Barbuda phone call Bollini that apology at that moolah, meow cat era, there are 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 even see someone had a night lock the moon without any streetlights. Darkness is one level over and over there if a person were to pull out his hand, you wouldn't be able to see it. Woman lemmya Charlie Level Level neuron family let me know. And whoever Allah does not grant a light to there will be no light
imagine others the narrative of the love of Thailand that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said the Jews have divided into 71 groups
all of them in the fire except one.
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 one.
So 72 atoms 73 Are those diverging paths?
And this is authenticated why in Milan.
And aperture can maintain value and others are gonna love me. So this is our discussion, we're studying the path of the Sahaba as 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 owner of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the majority of the people of arrogance, right? This makes it seem like going one's gonna make you.
First of all, by way of transmission the hate is authentic. And this argument that was posted against the Hadith or obscene problematically the Hadith doesn't stand, it's not in reality, a problem. Why? Because first of all, the ummah 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, who's 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 the 72 groups, the number of people in each group are the same as the number in the 73rd group is
that they're not all equal, not by the bounty of Allah, that pure understanding of Islam, that is what matches with the fitrah that is what people are born upon. And that was the vast majority of this ummah, is upon the way of the certainly the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
it's understood from the many texts in the Quran. And the sooner 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 virtue by virtue of that deviance of being in the fire doesn't mean for sure they will be in the fire. And it does not mean they will do you will spend forever in the fire if they enter the fight. You 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 wake of arrogance in his heart, meaning he has not qualified for Paradise like that. Understood, but Allah subhanaw taala may forgive that, or he may
have other good deeds that make up for this event, the end of the day, it scales, isn't it?
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 Subhana wands on
and also of the things we need to say about this hadith 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 for everyone guidance, and it pains us to hear that or not.
Muslim, what about a Muslim, either non Muslim and enter the five. We would not love that for anyone. That's part of the personality of the believer that he inherits from his prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam. But ultimately, there's going to be people that go down that road. So we're just going to ignore it, that road is there. You know, there's a beautiful quote I read two years ago, it stuck with me, they said, What is worse, a bee bee that's afraid of the dark, or an adult that's afraid of the lightens. You know,
a person has all the symptoms, they're to believe something's reality, he doesn't want to believe him. 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.
So this is an issue very of a reality. And also something that has to be mentioned about the sensitivity of the subject, is that the sex that divided, they divided on matters of the deen that we're not excusable, like who Allah is, like, what the definition of faith is, right? What the Quran is, these are not referring to, for example, the Hanafi and Shaeffer in Maliki and Hanbali schools of Islamic law that differed on how to interpret a certain text or otherwise, right, they were talking about the differences on this the technicalities of the prayer, or they're saying you're divorced three times in one sit down equals a divorce, or the wiping on the socks is allowed or not
in all do, 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 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 I was alone, and mortality, Allah says they're going to never cease being divided humanity until the Day of Judgment, while I will occasionally met on several partner, Rob Baker.
And we're not for a decision from your Lord that had preceded the only 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.
So let's, let's get to the dispute now. So there's 73 doors, all of them lead to the fire, except for one.
And we're 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
number to each of these 7273 have each of these doors
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 swears their rights.
Everyone's always there following the Quran and the Sunnah. Alright, all those 73 sample and Sunnah because he said my level divided into 73
meaning whoever rejects it will find the Sunnah not part of his ummah to begin with, they don't accept his religion to begin with, right?
As the poet that he says, Could unitary Oslo be Leila? Malayala to Corolla would be that, right? Leila is this woman that twice was in love with right? In famous Arabic folklore, not folklore, it was reality, first century century
likes of non so that he says, and Everyone claims to know later, everyone claims that he don't they know this girl. It's a metaphor we use throughout the centuries. And Laila 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, he doesn't know any of that, right? Like what everyone's whereas I said, I got the keys to Paradise, right?
And if you
in reality, this is not the case. 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 Alison called Devil's 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 this manner as the highridge who came out and their effects remain until this very day.
However, is the rebels those that call the Muslims disbelievers by because of a Cindy Cummins
They call me a Muslim and apostate a disbeliever because he came into sin, and they call for rebellion against the Muslim ruler to the end of it. He said to the likes of Abu Bakr and Umar, the greatest of the companions, one of you will be little his prayer to their prayer
and his fasting to their fasting, his recitation how much he recites for an operator how much they recite Quran, and he said, these are the dogs of the people of the fire. Can you imagine? Because of having no, no regard for the sanctity of human blood, no regard for the virtuosity of the companions, no regard for the students of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam have no regard for the Muslims themselves.
If not best when these people came out, and they call the Atlantic and offend the third caliph, and I leave them about the fourth Calvin's to companion, disbelievers in our best one of the greatest students of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam went out to their camp and Hamra isn't where I entered their camp. There's about 20,000 of them. You want to debate them, debate them the theology he said you hear in their tents at night like the buzzing of bees. I mean, they're reciting reciting reciting their devout worshippers at face value.
He said some Allah Allah he'll send them the Brahmin said about them. You have Corona Gu Allah La uj was Rihanna, Jura, but they recite the Quran, it does not pass their throats no understand.
And even years later, the Californian so he used to say about a man one of the the earliest leading philosophers who established a sector as part of establishing a sect known as the martyr Zilla. His name was I'm going to invade the grid Calif was mesmerized by him and he brought him close and used to say Kulu chromium shiroi Kulu compatibles like lion or Andreevna rubedo use the flatter him and commenting with poetry. He would say all of you walk around the Earth strolling, all of you are looking for a bird to to hunt, meaning you guys just taking your time no one's serious about their religion like this guy. Right? He looks impressive. All of you will stroll about in the earth is
what the poetry meets. All of you are just gazing around for your hunt for your game to bring the target practice on except for Hamilton MLB
this I would have normally had a mark on his forehead at look 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 deviants in his time.
So let's factor number three, that seeing that could be convincing.
Like the higher otherwise.
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 now.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in alpha format aha for Aliko Allah image and mullaloo and the greatest thing I fear for you or 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 Allah who is in another narration of falafel now how far are they good Munna? Ali Melissa, the greatest thing I fear for you is a hypocrite who was eloquent with his tongue. And he said some Allah Allah is another Hadith eliminated by Anita say haram. 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 articulate is the power of sorcerer, the fine art of persuading your desires known as advertisement? Right.
So when they do speak, they're very, very, very eloquent.
one of the one of the scholars who mentioned that
they brought forth one of also these Muslim philosophers, and they asked him to give a sermon
in front of a great audience of royals, and he had a list, you don't have a list, you can't pronounce all the letters of the alphabet, he couldn't pronounce the letter wrong.
And if 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 clergy in Islam. But the point is, you wouldn't be held at a higher repute 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.
Can you imagine this guy sitting in front of you talking to you, you're going to be convinced.
And then number five,
is that there are sources when they speak or the Quran and the Sunnah. Right? The hadith in Bukhari and Muslim the promises Allah spoke about the end times and the confusion that will occur at the end times.
He says all Allah was and then they will
Arise DARIAH to nada Abu Dhabi Johanna caller's at the gates of the Hellfire
manager with me they have been the foofy whoever responds to them heats their cold they will throw cast him into the fire so they visit Mr. Robot describe them to so we can take God Who are these people? What are they like? All of whom mean Jill that Tina were taken Munna via the Siena Tina. They are from our skins. They just like just like us, they look just like us. And they speak with our tongues. They use the same evidence as we use same arguments we use
in their callers at the gates of the fire will reata Willa.
And I'll give you a quick example. One of them's and hasn't been mentioned that a fistula
he'll come to and he'll tell you, for example, forget how consequential this debate is or not just think about it. What if I told you right now I can prove to you from the Quran and Sunnah, that this cockroach is a prophet
that the Cockroaches have profits.
This was a this was an actual second,
Allah subhanho wa Taala says
that there is no nation on this earth. Nor is there even a flock of birds that fly about their wings in Oman and third who exhibit their nations just like you.
And elsewhere in the Quran, Allah subhana wa dialysis what it means Matin Illa philosophy Hannah, and there is no nation except that a warner was sent to So are there wonders now for the birds in the cockroach in the middles. Corinthians two is yes or no.
And that brings number six that we don't know any better. Right? We haven't studied we haven't given the 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 prophets of Allah Allah who said
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 that's the answer, isn't it?
You know, Abu Dhabi, Allah Allah he says,
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 the something about you told us I don't understand the whole world around us. You know?
You know even the non Muslims recognized among those who have insulated Muslim, the collection, the Jews came to Salman Pharisee, the companion of the Prophet SAW Salem and they said in a vehicle Lafonda lemma could never you can Kula shade in Hatton Hara. So your Prophet What's up put your religion your Prophet teaches you everything, even how to use the bathroom.
To sell man on the abundance Allah and Malloy pleased with him. He said, Yes, he taught us not to face people of the direction of prayer, or to turn our back to it when we're urinating or defecating.
And to not cleanse ourselves out of the bathroom, in the bathroom with our right hands,
and to cleanse ourselves with dry
rot, meaning droppings of animals, and to not use less than three stones and he gave them the roots.
So our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he just to that degree, and he's the one that told us analytical analytical method. Well, if you are limited, 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
dilemma. He said to us and my own mind left out the other day on purpose. And my nation will divide into 73 segments, all of them in the file, except for one. They said which one almost drove 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 one today me and my companions. And then the highlight of our development Saturday. And then we mentioned in the previous session, the prophets of Allah, Allah Himself said, Whoever lives after me will see many differences. It's exactly what we see, isn't it? We'll see many differences. So this hadith is the prescription for what we're living.
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?
He said for our league, we Sunni so stick to my way, was sunnah to the whole affair of Rashi. Deen and methine and embody out do they have no energy. What year como is that? For in Gula polarity phenom
stick to my way and the way the tradition of my Rightly Guided caliphs, the Sahaba the companions and beware of
The new and he said quite onto it with 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.
You know, we all agree, all Muslims agree that if the prophet the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam was alive today, he would be able to solve all of our problems right around
him returning to us, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in effect is not very far fetched, because he left everything here. And Allah preserved it all, and even embodied in a generation that showed us practically how it worked, right, these companions, this is such a blessing.
And he turned away from the way of the companions, it is truly truly, truly a betrayal of that legacy. And Allah had done for us, you know,
and young, this is an example who has given us really worth considering.
I'm not talking about the Quran being preserved,
or even the words of the prophet who brought the Quran being preserved.
The words of the Sahaba were preserved authentically.
We know exactly what this companion said, although he didn't say many, many, many instances beyond counting.
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 to the Quran, in terms of preservation throughout history, not even the Bible to the Sunnah. The not even the Bible to the way of the companions, because the way of the companions is more authentically documented, and even the the Bible itself.
And this is something agreed upon even by their scholars, but 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.
And so Allah subhanaw taala, preserved for us and mechanism. So when we're studying the subject, now, we're so heavy, 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, then what's the beauty of it? What's the difference in Islam and the philosophy of Plato? Right. They all agree that beauty is right, that justice is right. And
truth is right. And brotherhood fraternity is right. And common welfare. We all agree on that. All of us. So what's so special about Islam?
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. To turn a blind eye to all that
is someone jeopardizing themselves, the Prophet SAW son didn't leave us to pick those 73 doors, or go through what the other nations went through.
And so before we embark on picking a way to understand our Islam, we have to check if that was the wave of prophets of Allah who is even the Companions so that we don't waste our lives. By the way, we don't waste our lives embarking on a path, it could be the wrong path. We took an exit or a detour that wasn't the right way of that path.
You know, some of the early Muslims were asked what is the scariest verse in the book of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada
and they said, we'll have an A bill can be La Serena Ramallah Alladhina Baldassarre. You will fit hayati dunya, for whom Yes, I'm gonna see no no. So now tell them how much Oh Emma inform you of the greatest losers, the greatest failures, the greatest wastes with regards to their deeds.
Those that their deeds, their efforts were in vain. They're striving they were actually striving in vain in the life of this world while presuming that they were doing good in deeds, presuming that their deeds were an excellence and that's why we're Ubisoft Yanni Ubisoft Yannick Rahimullah, he says, in them and Xylitol had a large army and you will feel for whom Allah Allah, Allah Allah, his sunnah. Indeed.
It is from Allah 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 Sunnah, the original way of Islam for the shortcuts right? So he doesn't try all the doors and waste his life. These are the signs that Allah loves somebody. He gives them the proper understanding of the dean. And before you the pros outside of himself said that the higher the morale demands likability maturity level, the higher you fatigue of it, Dean, whoever Allah wishes well for them, He gives
than the proper perspective the proper understanding of the deen
and also in the show the Rahim Allah he says in the near Mattila Alisha, we then Asaka and you he saw a sunnah Netanyahu Allah indeed is from the favor of Allah upon 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 Sunnah people with the way of the Prophet SAW Salem to carry him to put him upon that and use witness Bethlehem, one of the greatest scholars of the early Muslims of the Tagore in February, he says, Can I be a Padre Ian or a holy Raja filled garden in Nairobi, Sofia, and it says, My father was a pardon for the the people that
the opposite of a hard deterministic 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 when, you know, infatuated with a certain philosophy and they wanted to subordinate Islam to that philosophy, so my father was a part that he believed in that concept regarding this thing. And my my paternal uncle Douro awful they were Shiites that offered all this over she has those that rejected long story right, the Shiites, right, the more extreme group of the Shiites and in particular that also, he has so and I must save the meat with Sophia and he said to
me, so if you had to tell him
and he, Allah guided me through him, he sent that scholar my way I discovered him early, early enough in my life.
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, knowing
so for example, the man said O Messenger of Allah, the makeup of man and I was given me permission to commit adultery, like permits me I can't control myself. Permit me to commit adultery. He took him so Allah Azza would you like it for your mother? Would you like it for your daughter? Would you like it for your arm? Would you like it for your arm? Certainly turn.
No, likewise, that people wouldn't like it for their mother nor for their daughter nor for their aunts. And then he's also gonna put his hand on his chest that Oh, ALLAH forgive his sin and cure his chest and protect his private parts. And the narrator has the man never turned to women again. Right? I mean, he wasn't bothered anymore, and he was able to control himself there after walking the streets in the marketplaces in the likes. We know for example, Hey, the venison Buhari and Muslim, 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 when you pick a
corner, there are no corners, just urinate anyway, he came into the Mosque of the Bronx 11. he urinates in facing a pool
uncovered himself lifted his garments to urinate and also have other companions were about to attack him. Right? Imagine someone walked into the restaurant suppose that security
takes up start on buckling his belt and he's just picking a corner, right?
Until today, even we know the Hadith and we're still like, No way man. It's hard to control it and also have a word to jump on. Prophets. Letters removed don't cut off his let him finish. This was from his wisdom and his gentleman's he knew the men that didn't know. And also because if you chase a man down was urinating, because he's learning the message. He's not there anymore. If the message isn't right, it's gonna be urinating and running. More staining, isn't it?
From his wisdoms also learn from his mercy, right, he didn't hold against what he did not know.
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 he? May Allah curse him how many times you're gonna get brought back and arrested for the same crime? The province of Salford don't curse him. For me indeed, he loves Allah and His Mr. Meaning these are struggles that people have demons we all face our different demons Today we meet Allah sins, we're trying to get past day in and day out. He was merciful with all of that sallallahu 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.
And that was part of his mercy. By the way, I just want to show you the contrast. Right? Whoever is not interested in my sunnah is not over me. He said so Allah, Allah was this the one who pulled in the the arrogant and the enemy and the adulterer and the drunkard all of that is hard to come and all of that. But he tell him Whoever is not interested, whoever it turns away, arrogantly and prideful determines who doesn't want it. He's not asking me, all of them in the fire except one when it comes to this issue.
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
you destroying yourself, by building for yourself enough of your own system that you're fond of,
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.
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.
I'm not going to 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 do, so long as they come on Sunday and they cry, and they feel good about themselves and keep it moving, don't they? So this misunderstanding is a disaster in and of itself. When people have a misunderstanding on Destiny, whether Allah distance everything or things are divorced of Allah, Allah in control of everything, isn't that what causes people to fall into despair? Isn't that what causes people to become lazy and think I can't do it? Right, not
productive human beings. The understanding is the pad from which your Islam launches. So without that proper understanding, Islam is not going to be handleable for you, right, it's not going to be possible for you to handle this.
And from the Mercy of Allah and with this island, is that this initiative to be so happy to revive for yourself and 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, the perfect Islam, the original Islam, the only Islam, Allah has allowed in every generation there to be people that carry this understanding.
Even though others may disagree with them, and others may have falsely accused them and others may build campaigns against them, they always exist and select Muslim men elsewhere, the heightened majority narrative by German and so many others, he sets up a mob already he was
left as if a to mingle mercy, I will help the VA hurry. Ly adorable men Fidella whatever man holla for who had the ATM robot he won't get. 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 Allah is fulfilled.
So they will always be there. But notice also the Hadith 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.
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 a necessity spoke about their virtue and why they understand better and why Allah is pleased with them and what do we know about them? And now our need to rush back to that that was today's session. From then on, out in sha Allah will discuss bits, landmarks, milestones of how the habit understood the matters of belief, how this will have on the suit, the matters of, of law, how do you approach the rules in Islam, the issues of ethics, right, the issues of purification, spirituality, purifying the heart, all of that one
session at a time and childless panel and Allah if Allah permits for us the length of life to do so there's like a little fight on some of our heart and
also have big marine hamdulillah
