Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Allah Allah, he was savage rain, we begin the name of Allah All Praise and Glory be to Allah. and may his finest peace and blessings be upon His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his family and his companions and all those who tried his path.

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

I'm very happy to be restarting our classes in the masjid, but I will still keep it under 30 minutes. So we keep it 60% socializing and sha Allah. I heard there's Indian Chai tonight. So gotta prioritize that on some level. And I'm happy to see so many faces in hamdulillah even faces with noses covered as fine as well.

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

We all have a duty by the way, all of us have a duty now in the post COVID era in sha Allah, this, you know, this last wave

00:00:53--> 00:01:12

doesn't go full blown and dies down soon to, to the habituate people that have gotten used to being away from the masjid for legitimate reasons, to not allow them to assume that it would still be okay moving forward when those reasons begin to dissipate begin to vanish.

00:01:14--> 00:01:22

And so in sha Allah in the next five, six sessions, it will be like a starter series before we go back to the theater of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, which we began pre COVID

00:01:23--> 00:01:35

and we will as advertised be discussing some reflections on surah Taha gerat Surah Al gerat is the 49th Surah of the Quran.

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

And

00:01:41--> 00:01:58

if you were to give one overall theme to sort of her gerat, it would be, you know, the surah that covers the etiquette of relationships, the etiquette, the manners, the etiquette, the ethical framework for relationships,

00:01:59--> 00:02:11

the for relationships, all for you know your relationship with Allah with his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with the believers and with humanity at large, sort of that her gerat

00:02:12--> 00:02:42

came as almost a seal to the, you know, the nucleus or the core or the heart of Islamic civilization that was being founded by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before he left this world. And so it was revealed in the ninth year, most likely it was revealed in the ninth year after the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam established the first Muslim state Medina, and you will know what the ninth year was famous for what it was called.

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

I was Umoja,

00:02:47--> 00:02:49

the fidelity cinema

00:02:54--> 00:03:35

just like a little kid on the 90 year after the Hijra of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, after he got to Medina migrated there was known as the year of delegations, because this was right after the conquest of Mecca when you know, the tyranny of Quraishi, which was like our leading tribe in Arabia was finally subdued. And the strength of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was heard by all the Arabs were rebellious feudal tribes that only respected strength. And so in the message didn't work. For most of them, the miracles didn't work for most of them, when he was able to subdue Quraysh. That is actually when the majority said, This guy's a Prophet alayhi salatu salam, when he

00:03:35--> 00:03:47

made a step out, basically in a very merciful way, of course. And so the year following that was known as the year of delegations. It's when people came no longer as individuals no longer as groups.

00:03:48--> 00:03:50

On the moment, a key than the moment.

00:03:52--> 00:04:11

They came in delegations, tribes at a time saying, I'm coming on behalf of my tribe, giving you a pledge of allegiance, we are all Muslim. And so like the growth of Islam, in that very short period of one year grew rapidly with just striking speed.

00:04:12--> 00:04:24

And exponentially. And so it was growing very fast, but also the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam is blessed that life was coming to a decline was coming to a close.

00:04:25--> 00:05:00

And so there were many incidents and revelations that came so that people would not get the most important the spine and the structure of Islam, you know, blurred or lost in the mix of the, you know, the comprehensiveness the vastness of the message. So the message addressed everything, theology, our beliefs, you know, our spiritual refinement, our interpersonal relations, civil dealings, foreign policy, transit so much, but in this in the end, there was a common theme, that theme was summarizing the most important fundamental

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

As of the message that's why for example, you know the famous hadith of Gibreel it's called Hadith Gibreel. Once you realize Salam comes in the form of a man, he asked the Prophet SAW Selim some very high level questions, high level meaning summarizing, like, you know, what is Islam? What is Iman What is your son right? What's the mission? What is faith? What is excellence in this religion, and then he left and he said that was Gibreel came in coming to teach you your religion, right to summarize it for you that happened at the end of his life. Likewise, sort of that HYDRA. So the gerat came regarding the edit the summary of the edit of Islam, the you know, the ethical framework,

00:05:39--> 00:06:06

the the, the mechanism or framework in Islam, so that people would not get it to mix because the civilizations will stand and fall based on their ethical framework. You know, the Arabs used to say enamel, glaucoma, yet, nations or civilizations or empires remain so long as their values remain. And for a Muslim, it's not even about your nation, as you will see in sha Allah today. Ed Deb

00:06:07--> 00:06:54

is not something cosmetic, it's not just extra, you know, you have manners and stuff and like it's, it seems to be like a secondary thing. No, you're Adam can actually make or break your faith. Because it begins with your idea with Allah subhanho wa Taala himself. And so every believer, you know, is highly encouraged to study this surah in particular, and to promote it wherever Allah placed them in their life. So we will begin shall we? Bismillah in the first area, Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, you have Lavina Amanu LA to Kadeem obey nya de la here wa salam, O you who have believed do not step ahead. Do not proceed in front of do not decide before all of that would be

00:06:54--> 00:06:56

true. Allah and His Messenger

00:06:58--> 00:07:27

Know your place, right? That's the first thing Oh, you have believed is all over the Quran. But you should also always pay special attention when it's all you have believed. Because not saying yeah, you're a nurse or humanity. It's all you who have believed, which means what's about to come in the verse is the qualities of a believer. It's like a checklist you need to make it do I fit this description or not, or is there an imperfection or is there a gaping hole in my belief in my Eman?

00:07:31--> 00:07:34

At the at the it's about adult tonight

00:07:38--> 00:08:16

and so when you hear Yeah, you have Latina Emma know you want to listen extra carefully and take it extra seriously? Because this is the definition of faith or belief forthcoming. That's why I beloved Mr. Liu Radi Allahu Anhu he used to say whenever you hear Yeah, you're Latina. Amma No, this is your Lord summoning you. So give him your undivided attention. Because he's about to tell you something good for you, or warn you caution you against something bad for you. Allah doesn't give you a description that's arbitrary also, it's not just you need to commit to this. It's you need to commit to this not for Allah sake but for your sake. Meaning not for Allah's benefit and gain but your own.

00:08:18--> 00:08:44

Yeah, you have Lavina and Manu lair to cut demo Bay nya de la hora. So let me get to spend a little bit of time on this. Do not, you know, Taka doom? Right? Could you manage to move forward to move kudamon You know, put them is in front of Lautoka demo means don't step ahead of Allah and His messenger. What does that mean? Meaning don't proceed ahead of Allah and His messenger and make a decision without checking with them first.

00:08:45--> 00:09:33

Interestingly, what isn't it saying, it is not saying do not step ahead of Allah and His Messenger regarding blank, it's open ended, right, the object was omitted, so that it would include everything, it would be all inclusive, which means do not decide on any matter, whatsoever. Without first checking, that Allah and His Messenger have approved this, that it is acceptable in the sight of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you have to check that is the protocol and the hierarchy of the Muslim and this structure that Islam gives us is actually extremely liberating structures always liberated too much structure of course, like you

00:09:33--> 00:09:51

know, too much pressure causes eruptions, but that does not mean no structure at all in any sort of relationship, but what our relationships but structured ways to move along together you know, in a beneficial productive manner. Structure is extremely liberating.

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

You know, some people say structure is limiting. Yeah, it is limiting but who said limiting is oppressive. Like the guardrails on the highway are limiting. They live

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

MIT you from going into the ditch? That's kind of bad think is it,

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

you know, a

00:10:08--> 00:10:51

part of, you know, some, some research research I was I was doing on the side, you know, the fact that the super foundation of the Muslim community and the Muslim mindset is that it all goes back to, you know, an objective reference point and all knowing reference point, a perfect reference point, which is Allah subhanho wa taala. This is the greatest gift to humanity, it is not restraining us, you know, in a way that would be to our detriment, it's actually the very opposite. Because like, if we're not all going to agree on Allah subhanho wa Taala being the ultimate reference point, who are we going to agree on after him? It's not God, we will never agree, right?

00:10:52--> 00:11:36

And even if we were to agree, we can agree on something destructive, right? And we may not realize that as destructive until it's too late to repair it. So the research that that was coming to mind when that thought came to me now is this society, for example, came to like a a social agreement, they're sort of sort of a consensus that people should have the freedom to do what they want, and drink as much alcohol as they want. They agreed on this, didn't they? Then they realized this is a disaster. So they tried to abolish alcohol consumption about 140 years ago, right. And it failed miserably. They were not able to said, Okay, let's agree that we're going to tell people to drink

00:11:36--> 00:11:37

responsibly.

00:11:38--> 00:12:14

Let's try to mitigate it. Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. And, of course, this is the most nonsensical thing in the world where they agreed on it, right. And I use that it's such a good example, because there's really no such thing as common sense, common sense to you or to the next guy, common sense to the Westerner or the easterner common sense to the youth or the seniors, right? Common sense to the richer to the poor. There really is no such thing as common sense once you probe it a bit further. So you said okay, let's just not let's just limit the amount of drinking. That's the smartest way to go. Of course, that didn't work at all, because how are you going to tell

00:12:14--> 00:12:35

someone who was actively impairing his judgment? Once you realize you've had too much stop? That doesn't make too much sense at all. And so in the 80s, they had another genius idea they agreed on which is what there was a project called the Harvard alcohol project, they imported an idea from Europe, Scandinavia, I think,

00:12:36--> 00:13:04

called the designated driver concept. We all know designated driver concept, right? They spent 30 years pushing this concept. Massive networks, they used Hollywood, they used major corporations they use like political action committees. They even had the like the the liquor industry, like the Brewing and Distilling companies. They were all in agreement that let's push this designated driver, they were actually making the promotional campaigns themselves, make sure you have a designated driver.

00:13:06--> 00:13:15

As of 2016 30 years later, after normalizing the concept of designated driver, it's commonplace, it's common knowledge, it turned out to be a huge failure.

00:13:16--> 00:13:40

They have not been able to mitigate even half of the traffic deaths so far, because like, how intelligent is that? Really? You think about it, they all agreed that some guy is actually going to attend the party. And they're going to figure out which one is going to like, not drink. Not a very bright idea. It was it was like dead in the cradle. That's such an idea, right? This is the idea of having an arbitrary reference point, you know.

00:13:41--> 00:14:12

And so, and nowadays, you only think about like alcohol is agreed upon to be consumed and nothing is really working. They'll say no, but there are benefits to it. What are the benefits Exactly? Letting people enjoy their freedoms, the Quran told you there's benefits by the way, Allah said there's benefits and there's greater harms and benefits. So stay away. It's very liberating. There's 95,000 people that die from alcohol related deaths in the United States, every single year. 95,000

00:14:13--> 00:14:44

tracks traffic accidents, fetal alcohol syndrome from moms that consume it while pregnant disasters, rape cases abuse, violence, you name it. Huge epidemic, but that was the reference point. So even if humanity can agree, they can still set themselves up for destruction, when Allah is not your reference point. Right. It is extremely interesting. By the way, let's do a demo beignet de la hora solely that in every one of those

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

steps where they thought it was common sense had they had access to Allah and His Messenger, they would have found found the perfect answer, and a firm answer. You know, many people come to Islam after hitting rock bottom with alcoholism.

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

Why? Yeah

00:15:05--> 00:15:12

because only Islam has a zero tolerance policy on alcohol. Only Islam says non negotiable categorical rejection only Islam.

00:15:14--> 00:15:23

So, as for drink responsibly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, if Allah will intoxicate the littlest haram CASE CLOSED can do it.

00:15:24--> 00:15:37

As for someone attending the party and staying sober, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbid that you sit at a table where alcohol is circulated. Ali Salatu was Salam, every step of the way, every step of the way.

00:15:41--> 00:16:25

And so, Allah azza wa jal tells, you know, your limits, these limitations are liberating. And this is a principle now that you should understand as a Muslim, know your limits. Like I also want to widen the principle a little bit, even though it applies most to Allah and His messenger. Like if the Muslim community were best known as people who knew their limits, it will be one of the greatest invitations to Islam. Like in the age, when everyone thinks that their opinion is equal to an experts, you know, conclusions, the Muslims should shine, because our dean told us respect expertise, even on the human level. Like when the nurse sees the doctor in the room, the nurse stay

00:16:25--> 00:17:00

silent, right or wrong. That's the way it should be. She knows her limits, she steps up, when she's with the patient spec steps back when she's with the doctor, I should say she or he right, I should say she or he someone correctly, right? When the when the guest is there in the house. And the child is going to hurt himself, he can say something, because the Father is in the next room with the mothers in the next room bringing up the dishes. But when the father is in the room, he steps back, he knows his limits, I'm not going to discipline to get in front of his own parents, right, and so on and so forth, when the layman is present, and then the expert shows up, he should know his place

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

and keep silent.

00:17:03--> 00:17:08

And so the most important application of this in the most absolute sense.

00:17:09--> 00:17:26

And where it begins, because Allah is the one that told us to respect expertise, it all has to start with what led to Kadeem obeying the law, he was already after that, all things will fall in place. That's why we were calling it the super foundation. If it is not there, nothing will work.

00:17:27--> 00:18:10

But when that, you know, core is there, the rest of the system will fall in place. You know, even our Dean tells us this and just I always think about how liberating This is. Either quantum Fela tune fee suffering for a mural of Hidalgo. When three of you are out on a journey, pick one of you as your leader, because you just can't have endless debates about like, are we going to stop to pray now or coffee now or coffee later at this hotel or the next hotel or? It's just decision paralysis? They call it and hard feelings unnecessarily? Where did we get this liberating teaching from? From the fact that Allah said listen to the emir, picking me and listen to him. Right? You're in a masjid

00:18:10--> 00:18:36

or you're in some place and there's an amine they pick so long as it's not haram we listen. What if I don't like their opinion? I'm still gonna listen to Allah said so. Subhana Allah dot. Right? What if I think it's wrong, but it's not haram. It's not 100% wrong, you believe it's wrong. You need to listen and encourage others to listen as well. Right, very liberating, but it only comes from its source, which is let's have a demo Bay nya de la hora soli. And so

00:18:39--> 00:19:13

every Muslim is obligated to check first, when you're getting involved in business, you are not allowed to get involved in business without checking where the red lines are in financial transactions in Islam. You don't have the right to deal with your money as if it's your money, right? When you're going to get married. You need to understand the rulings of Allah and His messenger the structure he said for your marriage. Right? When you reach the age of adulthood youth you are obligated to learn how I'm supposed to wash myself how I'm supposed to behave, how I'm supposed to offer the salah so on and so forth

00:19:17--> 00:19:22

and then the eye goes on to say and I don't mind going very slowly reflecting on maybe two I Athonite.

00:19:26--> 00:19:29

Adina shutaura are identical man

00:19:33--> 00:19:33

Okay,

00:19:34--> 00:19:42

and then Allah says Subhanallah without to conclude this first area what sample Lucha in Allah has me on Allium

00:19:43--> 00:19:49

And fear Allah. Allah is certainly send me all hearing Alim all knowing

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

meaning he hears everything and he sees everything and he knows everything behind closed doors and otherwise, so fear him regarding this issue.

00:20:00--> 00:20:14

Have you trying to cut corners around the boundaries of Allah and His messenger, you know, fearing Allah is is a means of spiritual purity. It purges the arrogance in our hearts when Allah says, I know exactly what you're doing. And I know what you're thinking and I know what you're trying to do.

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

And again, okay.

00:20:24--> 00:21:04

That's why the scholars said about the conclusion of this idea just to move on from it. No body does this. It's a condom steps ahead of Allah and His messenger. This regards the necessity to check first did Allah make a decision about my life here or about my wealth here or about my kids hear about my family here? Whoever doesn't do this. This is a clear sign of the absence of the fear of Allah and their heart. Because that's the whole idea. Like, Why did Allah send down a structure? Why did He send down a shed? Yeah, why did he make decisions? Because it's not common sense. And so for you to say, I don't need to check you to tell yourself it's a no brainer. It's common sense. It

00:21:04--> 00:21:14

doesn't require me to check. This is a sign of spiritual corruption. This is a sign of you saying the Shetty is obviously going to match what I think is right.

00:21:15--> 00:21:57

And that is why the ayah ends by saying what duckula Fear Allah, do not allow that thought to settle, push it away with the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala do not proceed as your mind sees fit. Because if you only accept what your mind says, it's sensible, then your God is not God. Your God is your mind. Right? Many people, many people after they find out what the Dean says, they'll say, Well, that doesn't make sense. Well, who said it has to make sense to you? Right for You to accept it, then you're not submitting to Allah, you're submitting to your tastes, you're submitting to your evaluation. No, your mind needs to submit the way your heart does the way your body does as well.

00:21:59--> 00:22:07

So that is the first idea do not send forth do not overstep in front of Allah and His messengers decisions check with them first.

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

And fear Allah Allah is Most all hearing all knowing, the next idea goes on to say that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in particular now, yeah, you had Lavina Manu Oh, you have believed?

00:22:24--> 00:22:31

Letter farewell sweater calm focus out in Nabhi Do not raise your voices

00:22:32--> 00:22:43

over the voice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam while I teach you how to Allah Who will code and do not speak aloud to him? Do not speak in a loud voice to him.

00:22:45--> 00:22:56

And Tabitha, Maluku, and to MLA to Sharon, so that your deeds do not become worthless, your deeds don't become void, while you don't realize it.

00:22:59--> 00:23:19

So what can be said here? So we're stepping up now. Now we're not even talking about, you know, violating the decisions of Allah and His messenger. This is not just about Don't disobey. This is about Don't be casual with him, Allah He salatu. Salam don't. And Allah I think so many times of how hard it must have been for the Sahaba

00:23:21--> 00:23:38

you know, because we know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam The first thing you know is what he is Allah's Messenger. But he was their son and their brother and their husband and their dad before he was Allah's Messenger. And then overnight, this edit was required of them.

00:23:39--> 00:23:56

That there had to be a certain distance to be respected, which was called glorification. Not in the way you glorify God, but to glorify him because he is the messenger of God. And he started because of God, you're gonna glorify Him, not for him, but for God. subhanho wa taala.

00:23:57--> 00:24:01

Like there's, there's actually a hadith in Sahih Bukhari where

00:24:02--> 00:24:22

the Prophet sallallahu is when he would travel he will take a wife with him or or, or more than one. And so the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salaam when they were writing, he would step aside with his camel and he would ride next to his wife and he would like to ride next to the wife, there are the eyeshadow della Juana, she had a very special place in his heart in particular, right.

00:24:25--> 00:24:28

And she was younger, so she may have had more needs and so on and so forth.

00:24:29--> 00:24:33

And her camel was very well known. She just had a pretty distinguished camel.

00:24:34--> 00:24:37

And so one time I Isha was on a journey.

00:24:39--> 00:24:44

And with her was her co wife, Hafsa Hafsa, the daughter of Omar Radha Lavon.

00:24:46--> 00:24:46

And so,

00:24:47--> 00:24:59

have some of the Allahu anha thought of a very genius idea. She noticed the problems also lemons always preferring to, you know, like, repose and like recline just, you know, spend time, recreate with Asha. So she said to me

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

Aisha, you see my camel? Like I have a good camel. You want to trade camel do want to try out each other's camels.

00:25:08--> 00:25:12

And so I have the low on that trades camels with Hafsa this is like a bloody

00:25:13--> 00:25:46

and so the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam does what he commonly does he kind of swerves over to the camel of Asha about the Allah Juana. Oh, so they would ride in a hold edge held there just like a tent that sits on top of a camel. It offers more concealment more modesty, right? And so he went over thinking it is Isha. But who was it? It was Hafsa. And so he went along, he's not going to insult half. So he went along and spent some time with Hafsa I actually realized what happened. Right? Younger in his head that he realized

00:25:47--> 00:26:27

I Isha says about the Allahu Ana, that she stepped down. She was so burned by this. She stepped down off the camel. And she went and stood in some, some tall grass. And she said, just to give you a picture of the Talim she said, A Rob Allah. Also look your prophet, your messenger. Well, I started on a Hula, hula che and I can't say anything to him. He's your messenger. What are we gonna say? What are you doing? object to him? You know, interestingly, at times, you know, the her young age would get the best of her and that's why they say that she she was given more leeway by the Prophet alayhi salatu salam than anybody else due to that. But in principle, they knew that yes, he is my

00:26:27--> 00:26:33

husband, but he's also the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it is truly a challenge for everyone.

00:26:35--> 00:26:36

But what mitigates that challenge

00:26:40--> 00:26:44

of not treating the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, whether during his life or after his death casually

00:26:47--> 00:26:49

what helps you get past that challenge?

00:26:53--> 00:27:03

Think about it. Why is it easy to glorify the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam what helps you glorify Him? The fact that he's the Messenger of Allah who said that what else?

00:27:06--> 00:27:12

Yeah, his greatness as a human being. Right, his qualities la salatu salam, you know, they used to say

00:27:13--> 00:27:52

membre, who by de Hatton habba who woman Hala, Hua, whoever first sees the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, when you see him at first glance, you're in awe of him, you're at a loss of words. And then when you deal with him, you fall in love with him, like he had this odd to him. Allah He salatu salam, he had a natural order to Him, in His looks Allah to rob yo Salam, O Allah in his voice, Allah His Salatu was Salam. He had this deep voice, almost had an echo to it. He had wide eyes alayhi salatu salam with you know, some darkness around it as if he had curl in it. And sometimes he would add coat in it male, you know, eyeliner?

00:27:53--> 00:28:08

Allah His Salatu was Salam. Um, Reuben the last Radi Allahu Allah says, though, that we loved him so much but and respected him so much. We glorified him so much. He said that we could not stare at him for long periods of time.

00:28:09--> 00:28:19

To the point that if today on my deathbed, he was saying, this is insane Muslim, you were to ask me to describe him to you, la salatu salam, I will not be able to describe him to you.

00:28:21--> 00:28:30

The Scholars say and that is why the most detailed descriptions you find in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam were not from his closest companions.

00:28:31--> 00:28:38

They were from people who saw him from a distance or one time and then recall that and it was just the one incident Allahi salatu salam

00:28:41--> 00:29:21

when this idea came down letter firewall swatter can focus out in a beat, Do not raise your voice, your volume above those, the voice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of the Sahaba his name was Tebbetts hypnotise thought it was about him. It was not about him. There were delegations of them were, you know, Bedouins more coarse people. They say bento Tamim in particular, were the ones that this sort of came down about what the rabbits hypnotise disappeared from the Masjid. He stopped coming to the masjid. And so the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam noticed notice, and they sent for him and it says that they've noticed and they sent for him, and he sent a message back he's

00:29:21--> 00:29:36

saying, I'm not coming to the masjid because I am a man that has a very, you know, just loud voice. Some people are like this, right? Some people Allah created them with a louder voice than others. Brother I in Islam always says I have a loud voice. I don't need a microphone. Right. I have to agree with him.

00:29:38--> 00:29:41

Was he here tonight? He's not here. He'll see the record.

00:29:42--> 00:30:00

Some people are like this. So he thought that this I came down to doom him to condemn him. So he said I have a loud voice and I was speaking in the masjid where the Prophet SAW Selim was speaking to someone else or something. And that means I'm finished. I'm from the people of the fire and I'm

00:30:00--> 00:30:23

Head knock. And so they brought this to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said, he said the message back to him, he said, Tell him he's not from the people of the fire. Well, like in the home and agenda, no, rather he's from the people of paradise. Why from the people of paradise, because he had that much regard that too much glorification for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even in terms of the volume of his voice.

00:30:24--> 00:30:27

And this was not just during his life. I know he's salatu salam,

00:30:28--> 00:30:29

you know, like,

00:30:30--> 00:31:05

I It's hard to open the subject without land, close it fast. But if you read about the, you know, the early scholars of Hadith, the way they respected and glorified the words of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam after his death, one and 200 years later, like jobholders, Muhammad and Zuccotti and Imam Malik Rahim, Allah Lazar of the pioneers of the science of Hadith, when the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa salam would be mentioned many times they would not be able, they were so afraid to relay his words and mix their words with his that they would break down crying until everyone just gave up and left like, Okay, class is over. Let's say we'll come back we'll try next time.

00:31:06--> 00:31:20

And they would say to them, if you saw what I saw, meaning the Sahaba that we met, you will not blame me. They were more intense in their caution regarding the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam in his words, one time and Imam Malik Rahim Allah also

00:31:23--> 00:31:27

the Khalifa the basset Khalifa had come into the Methodists came into the gathering.

00:31:29--> 00:31:44

I was offered a monsoon and some narrations was Harun Rashid to our best at Halle furs. And one of them was speaking to Imam Malik debating with him. And so in the middle of the debate, Imam Malik Rahim, Allah says some Have some manners,

00:31:45--> 00:31:56

have some manners. He said to him, this is the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you know Malik Todd and Medina in the masjid of Medina. He says to him, Do not raise your voice.

00:31:57--> 00:32:03

Next door to the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Another time it was reported that Harun Al Rashid

00:32:04--> 00:32:36

came into the Methodists and he spoke to someone like what did I miss something to that effect? He spoke to someone. And so Imam Malik said to him to add Debbie, I mean, where are your manners? Oh, leader of the believers. He said to him, what poor manners Did you see from me? He said, I am narrating the words of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and you are speaking. And Allah said, letter firewall swatter can focus out in Nabhi this verse, Do not raise your voice over the voice of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:32:38--> 00:32:48

In a third incident, and I guess we'll stop at this area in sha Allah azza wa jal in a third incident. Imam Malik Rahim, Allah was narrating these Hadith

00:32:50--> 00:32:54

in one of these gatherings of transmission, and he saw a young boy

00:32:56--> 00:33:00

preteens sitting in the gathering,

00:33:01--> 00:33:03

licking his finger and playing with his palm.

00:33:05--> 00:33:36

And so he waited. He didn't know who this young boy was. So he waited till the gathering was over and told him come here. Where are you from? He said, I'm from I'm from Mecca. He said, were in Mecca who are and he asked him for his basically his family's ancestry. And he told him you come from a very noble lineage. You come you're a descendant of of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi salam, why do you have such poor edit? He said, what poor edit. He said, I'm narrating the messenger of Allah's words, and you're licking your finger and you're playing with your palm. He said to him, I was writing the Hadith.

00:33:38--> 00:33:47

So Imam Malik, so what do you mean you're writing their Hadith, relate them back to me. And so he relayed back to him all the Hadith perfectly with the men who narrated them up to the Hadith.

00:33:49--> 00:34:02

And so Imam Malik realize this was a special child, he was a prodigy. He was a genius. And so he took him in, and he began to tutor him. That was the first time remember Scheffer in Mathematica himolla. That young child has remember shefford Rahimullah.

00:34:03--> 00:34:41

After he had memorized the mothae Malik, and about 10,000 odes of poetry, meaning mastering classical Arabic, they sent him to Medina. And that was the first time he walked in on medics gathering. But this was the rank and the honor whoever carried the words of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam like scholars, basically, you know, many times we don't carry the proper regard for scholars. And I have to admit, I understand that sometimes. Those who fill the chairs of the scholars are not as respectable as they should be due to certain actions they take. But also I want to say we are not as respectful as we should be considering what they carry. Let's let's own

00:34:41--> 00:35:00

that. Right. They are carrying the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, respecting them is part of our respect for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam had that glorification not been there, the dean would never have come to us had that glorification and that focus and that investment not been there. Obey

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

Seeing him would not have been possible you wouldn't even be able to identify what it means to obey Him. Allah He salatu salam. That is why Allah azza wa jal moved the bar as far back as don't speak while his statements are being spoken. Because if that is trampled, then everything else gets steamrolled after it.

00:35:19--> 00:35:28

And that's why he said Anta, Balto Maluku one two letter, Sharon, the end of the verse so that your deeds are not forfeited, whose deeds are forfeited in Islam?

00:35:32--> 00:35:34

What category of people get their deeds forfeited?

00:35:37--> 00:35:46

The disbelievers right, there's only one sin that will devour all good deeds, and that is the sin of disbelief. Only that one.

00:35:47--> 00:36:08

Well, how about to be healthy and to who like us how will not even feel closer Allah says those who are surrounded right consumed by their sin, and they are the ones that spend forever in the fire. And so look at the importance of edip here, it could cause you to fall out of faith altogether. If the glorification falls beneath a certain baseline.

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

You forfeit your deeds. We're Entomb letter, Sharon, while you don't realize it, that doesn't mean you can ever fall out the fate accidentally. That's not what it means. Because accidents are not sins. Meaning you do something you know it's wrong, but you don't think it's as bad as it actually is. You're negligent regarding the necessary edit glorification of the Messenger of Allah Alayhi Salatu was Salam

00:36:38--> 00:36:46

that's it Subhanak long Hambrick shadow Allah Allah herland and stuff broken into like two verses in but the tea must be rolled out any questions

00:36:50--> 00:36:54

I want six minutes over Don't worry. I'm getting started again getting the kinks out the system.

00:36:57--> 00:36:58

beds ready to go.

00:37:02--> 00:37:04

Any you know, clarification anyone need
