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

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Jemaine. What?

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

Today inshallah we're going to be live with a very interesting

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

person very interesting personality.

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

This is one of a tabulation. So I broke the pattern we spoke about three imams so far, everyone is expecting us to talk about Imam Ahmed have been handled right?

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

The I was gonna talk about him, I'll be honest, I was gonna talk about Imam has been handled. And I love to talk about this man a lot.

00:00:36--> 00:00:44

But because I have to leave by nine, I have a long drive ahead of me. So I have to by nine and a half to leave here.

00:00:45--> 00:01:20

So to talk about mm hmm in 40 minutes would do him injustice, a big injustice. So I said no, I'm not mad, we have to talk about him for two hours, at least for two hours. So I'm gonna keep inshallah for another another day. Now since the time is going to change. Next week, the halaqaat will be still after Russia. Russia will be an eight helical be after Russia. But the week after that means in two weeks from now, and two weeks from now, the halaqa will be after another IP will be after another because I think MATLAB around that time would be

00:01:21--> 00:01:43

7731 7730 so it's good to pray Maghrib and then start our Hello class with the help of we will be between mother and Asia. inshallah hutan so the the Tabori that we are dealing with today is a very interesting figure read a very interesting person. One of the most knowledgeable but not known very much his his name is common but people know don't know much about him.

00:01:45--> 00:01:59

And he has there is something that stands out as you study his life that he hated. Or he really struggled a lot with a what Alex call fatigue will also color have been

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

our version of 1314 of will or logical 13 and Arabic means someone who is like literally speaking heavy blooded. What does that mean? Their presence is so heavy. These people are so dumb. They ask very like stupid questions. They ask about the obvious. Okay, so they give you a hard time when they are present. They give you a hard time like you don't want to be in their presence. So that's the tale

00:02:29--> 00:02:31

of will in Egypt. What do you call them?

00:02:32--> 00:02:35

The era tell them

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

yeah, like heavy blooded right? Like his brothers so thick.

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

Okay.

00:02:43--> 00:03:14

So this Imam really had like a very special dislike to these kind of people but he struggled with them a lot. And we will see like he developed a way to answer these people's questions. He developed a way to answer these people's questions. So we're dealing today with the Tabby Eagle deal under a shabby and a shabby an immuno Shura hail a shabby is good actually to present these you know these figures in our history, because

00:03:16--> 00:03:36

although his name might be common, but we don't know much about him. Most of us don't know much about me. I'm an adventurer, I hate a shabby, and it's good if you don't know about him that you get to know about these tabibian about the merits and about the good traits and the good practices that they had because there is a lot to learn from from their lives and from their their experience.

00:03:37--> 00:04:28

So I'm an emotional I hail a shabby and is Kenya is Abu Abu Ammar al Kufa is from Kufa so it's Kenya is Abu Ammar al Kofi Abu Hamza al Kofi Rahim Allah hota he was actually one of the more most prolific mahad within scholars of Hadith and so he narrated a hadith from 50 companions so among the companions, he has 50 teachers from whom he narrated a hadith. Among them is Abdullah ignore Omar Abdullah abas some of the greatest companions so he learned from a monk from Abu hurayrah as well he narrated from Abu hurayrah so he narrated from the prominent scholars among the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, a very special thing about Amazon assura here during his lifetime he was

00:04:28--> 00:04:41

born by the way during the khilafah of Mr. Malhotra. He was born six years almost six years after America became califa. That makes him that makes it What year? What year did Mr. hapa become the halifa?

00:04:42--> 00:04:43

What year

00:04:44--> 00:04:53

the professor solem passed away the year 11 after his run the year 11. After his job the professor then passed away. Then the Khalifa became who

00:04:54--> 00:04:56

Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu How long did they

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

last for almost two years.

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

almost two years. So what year America became the believer 13 year 13 after hijra, how long did the collapse of Rome kebab last for? These are quizzes yeah questions 10 years excellent 10 years among hottub was the halifa from year 13 to year 23 who became the Khalif after on hapa as a fan How long did he live to stay and be halifa for how long

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

10 no

00:05:35--> 00:05:36

for no

00:05:37--> 00:05:38

not even close

00:05:39--> 00:05:40

not create

00:05:44--> 00:05:58

let's work it out let's work so you don't forget it you don't forget it. So we're talking about year 23 when Bob was martyred was killed by Abu Anima juicy okay that's the time I'm hot tub was killed 23 after Hey, Joe.

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

Now, the whole affair

00:06:04--> 00:06:16

the whole affair for rightly qualified washer Don't fall for the for rightly guided caliphs, the last of the reign of the caliphate which is the death of an even thought it was the year 40

00:06:18--> 00:06:23

is why the 44 zero is why the prophets of Salaam says Allah, Allah for Rashida

00:06:24--> 00:06:27

badly anyway, it is not.

00:06:29--> 00:06:35

So the laugh of algebra we thought it ended 40 that's the end of the colorful Rashida 14

00:06:36--> 00:06:43

so I'm not gonna hop up Alibaba was Khalifa for five years, five years, and even

00:06:45--> 00:06:48

so then it makes the khilafah man How long?

00:06:49--> 00:06:54

12 years 12 years. Okay, you guys are good at mathematics.

00:06:55--> 00:07:43

From 23 to 35 was the life of man around the Allahu anhu in it, you know, we thought it for five years. So a shabby was born around the year. What 19 around year 19. He was born in a Kufa he was born in a cafe his father was an Arab, but his mother was from a Sebby. His mother was a concubine. But obviously, in Islam when a concubines slave of war, right, so she comes from a Persian origin, a purchase a purchase Persian, she was one of the concubines when the Muslims obviously took over Iraq. And what's known today was called Asan, Mahara. And that was known as Iran today. And all these areas. So the people who fought against the Muslims, okay.

00:07:44--> 00:08:05

The Captives there, the women were taken as concubines, as happens everywhere. So, but in Islam on a concubine, becomes a mother, she's freed, she's freed she becomes free she becomes a mother becomes a wife. So his mother, so he comes from his mother comes from SMB, from SMB, so his mother is Persian.

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

Okay, so amoruso shall be very interesting personality. And amongst the most learned, the very interesting thing about him is even in the presence in his life, there was a lot of companions, a lot of companions. Yet, even in the presence of companions, people used to come to me for fatwa

00:08:29--> 00:08:31

even in the life of the companions.

00:08:32--> 00:08:53

For Ghana, you stuffed was Sahaba to Mata Kathy Rona matawa. So when there are so many companions around still defect why used to come back to an administrator I hate a Chevy This is how I learned how educated and well versed in knowledge he was. That's amor ignition, I will see why he occupied such a high position in knowledge.

00:08:56--> 00:09:07

Something very interesting about him that shows his actually his how bright this man was, how knowledgeable he is what he was. He was very close to the whole affair. So mainly

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

when he became prominent, he became well known. That was the healer, fellow Maria, the Umayyad Caliphate.

00:09:16--> 00:09:30

So specifically, the healer of Abdul Malik bin Marwan he was very close with the medic Meanwhile, one, and he wasn't away from the palace. So this color, the stab at this Maha death was not away from the palace.

00:09:31--> 00:09:43

It was connected to the government who was close to the government. So he was very close to the extent that Abdul Malik bin Marwan sent him as a messenger as a deputy as an ambassador

00:09:44--> 00:09:45

to

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

the Byzantine emperor, Emperor Emperor.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

He sent him to what was called Astana Istanbul, where the Byzantine Empire capital was there.

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

We sent him to the emperor of the Byzantines as an ambassador to speak with him and negotiate about certain things.

00:10:09--> 00:10:13

So when he went and he met the Emperor,

00:10:15--> 00:10:32

they had a discussion and they spoke, and the Emperor was impressed with the AMA international rahila shabby, very impressed with his intelligence, his sharpness, his present mind, his ability to respond, his vast knowledge, his intelligence, everything he admired that guy.

00:10:34--> 00:10:37

Then, after, you know, they had these discussions and

00:10:38--> 00:10:50

probably some kind of agreements. Usually there would be the, the Emperor would write to the Calif, a letter and it would be obviously sealed, so the messenger doesn't see it.

00:10:52--> 00:11:02

So the letter was handed, or the files were handed to either a shabby, and in order to carry a ticket back to Abdullah melachim. Number one, the Umayyad Caliph, Caliph.

00:11:05--> 00:11:31

So when I arrived back in Damascus, and he handed over the key tab, or the letter from the Emperor, to the Calif, he read it, so there was so many things in it. And then the Caliph read something there. When he finished when he was done, he turns to me and he says, Do you know what this Emperor wanted? What he had what he intended,

00:11:32--> 00:11:38

which says no, obviously he didn't look into it. He's not supposed to look into the letter. And it was sealed.

00:11:39--> 00:11:41

He said he wanted me to kill you.

00:11:42--> 00:11:45

He wanted me to kill you guess how

00:11:46--> 00:12:01

the Emperor wrote in the letter to the Caliph. He said, I am puzzled and amazed how a people who have a person like your ambassador and they don't make him their king.

00:12:04--> 00:12:15

I'm amazed. I'm puzzled how there are people in there in the right minds, who have a person so intelligent and so exceptional like this messenger. And they don't make him their leader.

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

So the Caliph understood he said he wanted me to kill you.

00:12:22--> 00:12:25

So this is how impressive

00:12:26--> 00:12:40

remember shabby was and we will see how his good presentation and how his good character and his diplomatic skills are actually going to save his life. Just like with the mammoth chef, he will save his life.

00:12:41--> 00:13:11

So let's take a physical description of an Imam Shafi mama shabby, was very thin, very skinny, thin and skinny, who will he was little physically, he wasn't a big figure. So that's the amount of shabby his beard towards obviously, past the middle of his life, his beard was made he would use henna to diet. So it was read most of the time it was that orangey you know color which comes with the hen

00:13:12--> 00:13:28

and he was a person with a very good sense of humor. He had a very strong sense of humor and we will see with his fatawa and he that was his strategy to deal with thick blooded people. That was his strategy.

00:13:30--> 00:13:40

Remember, zuri, the famous scholar he says Kalima, Missouri Allah ma ba, ba ba ba say who say Phil Medina

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

where Mr. shabby. Phil Kufa

00:13:44--> 00:13:47

We're at hassanal bursary Phil vasara

00:13:48--> 00:14:18

wama coefficient. He says the scholars of our time are four remembers during Ramadan he says something like this that's one of the main one of the Imams of a tabula and he says the scholars of our time are for he says in Medina sorry, who say you say it in the masjid in Kufa amor shabby. The person we're talking about today in Albus Allah, Allah has an anniversary and in a sham mccole Makati Xiaomi

00:14:22--> 00:14:42

is also an understatement from a mobile Sharma. So one of the tablet in his well he says Ghana all muddled will have bad fees and man here upsetness. During his time alone, Bob was the master of people. He was the head of all people in terms of knowledge in terms of influence, America was number one.

00:14:44--> 00:14:54

What can I bet that who even knew at best so when America passed away the main person specifically for knowledge, the main reference was about what we allow and

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

what can be the who shall be you and after that

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

Bass bass passed away. The reference for knowledge in the Muslim Ummah became ama shabby, and shabby. So you can see we're talking about a very weighty figure a very important figure in our history. And it's a pity that we don't know much about him. We don't know much about him. He's one of one of the main scholars among the targeting. What about the who soufiane authority after Mr. shabby, the authority in terms of knowledge was handed down to sufian authority.

00:15:31--> 00:15:35

And Abby Becker, alhuda recall ali-mohammadi no seriya

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

either the hulten qu Fattah fasttech. Theremin D shall be

00:15:42--> 00:15:47

for in the huka another use was Hubble was Hubble Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:15:48--> 00:15:50

so this is two from among the tambourine

00:15:51--> 00:16:35

Mohammed ministry Syrian famous they're very The one who was was exceptional in interpretations of the dreams. Mohammed Muna, Syrian by he wasn't only in dreams, he was a scholar. However serene was a scholar Rahim Allah. So he says to one of his prominent students, Abubakar who Delhi, he says to him, if you go to Cova, then get as much as possible from the get as much Hadeeth as possible from amercia be learn as much as possible from him. Why? Because he used to give fat one he used to teach and people used to ask him, even when the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim were present. This is how prominent and strong in knowledge he was.

00:16:36--> 00:16:54

So Mr. shabby, as we said, was a very quick person very sharp, and he had a strong sense of humor. But he was extremely intelligent. He says, listen to his intelligence and why he became so excellent in knowledge, he says, markets a bit too. So they're a fee, but your ba Isla Yomi had?

00:16:55--> 00:17:04

Well, I had definitely I had to be had eaten in half, you have to go back to Anuradha Who? Allah. Yeah. He says,

00:17:05--> 00:17:10

never in my life. Never in my life, have I written anything.

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

I've never written I've never took taking notes. I've never taken notes in my life

00:17:18--> 00:17:20

until our present day.

00:17:21--> 00:17:41

And I've never had any statements or anything from any person, except that I memorized it straightaway, without any need for him to say it again to me to repeat it. What does that mean? If he heard something, he read something, he registered it, memorized it completely.

00:17:42--> 00:17:52

That's how sharp and strong his memory was. So you read something, you told him a story, you told them about something about a piece of information, you told him about Hadeeth.

00:17:53--> 00:18:28

straightaway, he would memorize it as it is. This is very powerful memory. And we said previously, this was very common among the Arabs. But now obviously, with modern lifestyles, a lot of modern lifestyle, a lot of distractions, a lot of commitments here and there. You know, most people lost them, and we Imam Shafi, we said was exceptionally good at this as well. Remember, Chef Ray, by the way, had something, it was like a ruler, it was like a piece of wood, that when he read, when he read something, he would actually, you know, put the ruler under the line

00:18:30--> 00:18:36

in order to cover the rest of the page. Why? Because if he if his eye catches something, it would memorize it.

00:18:38--> 00:19:02

So his strong memory became more of a burden. And he would sometimes as well, like he was reading a book, obviously, you know, a book has obviously two sides, right like this. So he's flicking through the book, that's how it is. So he would put his piece of wood on that side. Why? Because he, as he's reading this, he doesn't want his eyes to carry on on the other side. So memorizes or links this line to the line on the opposite page.

00:19:04--> 00:19:14

That's the kind of memory we're talking about. So Ammar Shelby himolla had this kind of memory. He said, I've never taken locks. Once I had something I memorized it, it's registered.

00:19:15--> 00:19:22

And this kind of memory, by the way, is very powerful. And we said among the Arabs was very common. So someone would hear

00:19:24--> 00:19:50

poets and poetry, sometimes 100 lines of poetry. He would hear that poetry for the first time. That said they would memorize it. They would memorize it for the first time, and they would repeat it altogether. And know the famous story from one of the caliphs who actually had the ability to memorize poetry lines of poetry. As soon as he heard them from the first time, he would memorize them, they would register. So

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

we actually made a challenge to everyone, all the poets around he said,

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

If any poet comes with a piece of poetry that I don't already know, I'm going to give them a gift. And the gift would be, you know, whatever they've written it on, they bring it weighed up against gold, and I will give them the same weight in gold.

00:20:18--> 00:20:27

So poets would be working on beautiful poetry, and they would bring it to him. And they would start saying it, and he could memorize it upon hearing at once.

00:20:29--> 00:20:37

So he, as the poet, as soon as the poet finishes reciting their poetry, I say, the caliphal say, Oh, I know this already.

00:20:39--> 00:21:11

And they probably say, How do you know this? I just wrote it last night. Like, I've just invented it, I made it. So how can you know it? He would say, Well, I know it already. I can prove it. And I can recite it to you all complete 100 lines are recited to you now. And he would actually recite it complete, without any mistake. That wasn't the whole trick. He had a servant who could memorize any poetry at any length, upon hearing it twice.

00:21:13--> 00:21:24

So when the poet has recited his poetry, and then the Caliph said, I know it already, and then he recites it to prove it. Now the servant has memorized it two times.

00:21:25--> 00:21:44

I'm not even the only one who knows it. I have a servant who knows it. Come here, come here. The seven would be hiding somewhere. Come on, bring him bring him. So he comes. You know this poetry? He says, Yeah, I know it. Can you say it to him? And he would recite the whole? I'll see you there. Right. So the man would be like, out of his mind. Come on, man. I just wrote this. He said, that's not the only thing.

00:21:46--> 00:21:47

I have a girl servants.

00:21:48--> 00:21:49

I have a maid

00:21:50--> 00:22:19

and she knows it. Why? Because she memorizes any poetry upon hearing it three times. And now it's been recited three times. She said Go Go and get that made go and get it. She's actually hiding behind. So they bring her and she recites the whole same poetry but guys completely loses his mind that that's impossible. So until I lost my amendment awesome, I owe him a whole lot very intelligence and a mastering the Arabic language, ma'am as my

00:22:21--> 00:22:23

amendment. That's why by the way.

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

Okay, I'll mention that later.

00:22:28--> 00:22:33

Remember, mine was a big one, a big one. And when he came, he dressed up like a Bedouin,

00:22:35--> 00:22:38

like in bed one. And he had locks, hair locks.

00:22:39--> 00:22:48

The bed ones there. They had hair locks. So his locks would be resting on his shoulders and his chest, coming from underneath his ama.

00:22:49--> 00:23:02

And by the way, this was common among the Arabs, even until like 50 years ago. Like even talking about my country headwinds. They had general they had locks. So

00:23:03--> 00:23:42

So he came, and he actually had written some poetry and the poetry was very confusing, very confusing. He starts with something like so to saphir is bully bully ah Appleby family. The whole poem, you know, poem is not such a big one. It's probably 15 lines. But it will blow your mind away, because all of it is like, pumped up tabali. Well, when things like this a lot of repetition, and small syllables and things like that, so it's very confusing to when the Caliph listened to it the first time he got confused, he couldn't memorize it. Because last night, I realized what the trick was.

00:23:43--> 00:24:07

So he said, I'm going to teach him a lesson. So he brought it. The Caliph listened to it. He said, he tried, but he couldn't figure it out. Then he thought maybe maybe the servant could actually figure it out. He checked. No. The made no, now he's stuck. He said, I have to give him you know, the gold right? He said, okay, bring the piece of writing. What is it? Did you did you? Do you have it written? He said, Yes.

00:24:08--> 00:24:18

He said, What is it? He said, it's there. I have some camels that are carrying it. So what said Yeah, because I've been spending some time carving it in stone.

00:24:19--> 00:24:25

So it's a huge piece of marble. Yeah. And you need to get like 20 people to come and bring in.

00:24:28--> 00:24:46

Yeah, okay. So that's about memory. So remember, Chevy was something like this. He would hear something straightaway committed to memory. No questions from the first time. So he says one of his statements Massa Metro language, Rena centerton, our jhulan you had this will be Hadeeth in illa amobee him in

00:24:48--> 00:24:56

August. And he says, In the last 20 years of my life, and the last one two years of my life. I've never heard a man

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

relating ahaadeeth from the prophet SAW center.

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

Talking about Hadeeth from a statement from a tradition from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, except that I know this hadith more than he does. So that means no one around him could bring something new to Imam shabby.

00:25:17--> 00:25:26

So in the last one two years, I haven't heard anyone talking about a Hadith, or teaching a hadith or relating a hadith except that I know it more than that person.

00:25:27--> 00:25:33

woollacott danesi to mineral in me, mallow. Have you ever heard of Raja Luna? Can I be here?

00:25:35--> 00:25:42

And he said, the knowledge that I have forgotten in my life, if someone were to learn it, he would become a scholar.

00:25:46--> 00:26:03

So repeat it. That's an Arabic expression, by the way. That's an Arabic expression. And the ones who say this this kind of style in a sham, we call them, Iran, or should be in Egypt, they call them volpaia. Hmm.

00:26:05--> 00:26:10

It's kind of like how they can pick your brain. Basically, they say, you know,

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

what you're going to learn in your life from the one have forgotten it already. That's what they're saying, basically, okay. What you are about to learn in the next 50 years in your life, I've forgotten that already. So don't mess with me. That's what it means. So now, imagine shabby is saying,

00:26:31--> 00:26:39

I have the knowledge that I have forgotten because obviously the obviously we're speaking at an old age. So the knowledge that I've forgotten in my life.

00:26:41--> 00:26:45

If someone were to learn this knowledge, he would become a scholar.

00:26:47--> 00:26:54

He would become a scholar, that means I have learned so much, and I've forgotten so much. And what I know is more than what I've forgotten.

00:26:55--> 00:26:57

Okay, so that's basically what are you seeing?

00:26:58--> 00:27:03

One of the tabin as well, Mr. Mitchell as he says, Mama a 241 esta homina shabby

00:27:04--> 00:27:18

model a 240. And I haven't seen a person of knowledge 40 a scholar who has more understanding or a deeper understanding than a man a shabby, remember, shabby talks about himself and he says, My Allawi, she called me an usher.

00:27:19--> 00:27:28

He says basically, the thing, the weakest, I'm the weak. I'm like my weak mice. My weakness is poetry.

00:27:29--> 00:27:57

My weakness is poetry. So I haven't invested much time that in poetry, so that's my weakest point poetry. My are we shaken up alumina share Willow shape to the uninsured to come shahana or a debater? He says the least that I know is poetry. And if I want to if I wanted to, I could from now, for 30 days, keep reciting poetry to you never repeating one line.

00:27:59--> 00:28:04

That's his weakness. You're talking about his weakness. What about his strengths? So you can see him I'm shabby.

00:28:05--> 00:28:13

Had a special way of expressing himself a special way of expressing himself. And that shows a little bit his sense of humor.

00:28:15--> 00:28:21

That would not be hidden behind majilis to add an element minister by chef Mina, shabby,

00:28:22--> 00:28:58

another one from a tablet. And he says I haven't set with a person who has more knowledge than the man has shown me. Despite all of this madness, shabby would not venture to get fit what people would ask him and he would not answer. And one of the common statements on his tongue was always that, I don't know. I don't know. And he's the first one known to have made this thing because we don't know the originator of the statement. But he's probably the oldest one that's known about who have said the statement. Landry useful in saying, I don't know this is half of knowledge, because you know your value.

00:28:59--> 00:29:16

And you know what not to say? Because knowledge is not knowing what to say. But knowing what not to say as well. Knowledge is not knowing how to answer and what to answer. But it's also another half of knowledge is knowing what not to answer. And when not to answer.

00:29:21--> 00:29:59

So a man asks Brahim and Nephi, one of the main the kebab with the rain. He asks him about something. Mm hmm. He says, I don't know. Really. I don't know the answer. But they were so they were chatting for a while. Then amateur shabby passes by. So Abraham and it says ask Ron ask that man. Simon shabby, so the guy chases I'm a shabby, asked him. And he then brought him in. He said when you asked him, come and inform me about his answer I want to know. So the guy comes back to bite him in the head and he says I asked him and he said he doesn't know. So blaming, he said, There Lika who will help him he said

00:30:00--> 00:30:10

Knowledge. This is knowledge. Now I have my personal assessment of this incident, I think. And by the way, the scholars, you have to read through what the scholars say.

00:30:11--> 00:30:16

Oftentimes the scholars would say to someone, I don't know because they say they see the person

00:30:17--> 00:30:19

is not able to handle that answer.

00:30:22--> 00:30:31

So they know the true answer might be a fit enough for this person might be a bit now for this person. And anyone who spends time with these colors, you will notice this often.

00:30:33--> 00:30:39

And that's taken from the statement of Vlogmas wrote, probably Allah who had

00:30:41--> 00:31:00

met and had the fullness of the microphone actually done and you can who are a pseudo similar statement from Alibaba polyp, probably a low annual man who had decent comb and had eaten lots of blue in LA can Alibaba him. fitna says, speak to people something or tell people something they can comprehend.

00:31:02--> 00:31:22

Do you want people to disbelieve in what Allah and His Messenger brought? Or the other statement is, if you tell people something that's above their heads, that's difficult for them to understand and grasp, okay. So they are not at a level to be able to relate to it, then you are causing them fitna, you are putting them in a test in a trial.

00:31:23--> 00:31:39

So that means not everyone should be answered. Not everyone should be answered, even if you know the answer. So sometimes the scholars really they don't know. Or maybe they feel they don't have a good assessment of the situation, or they don't have all the details that are relevant. So they would not give a fatwa.

00:31:41--> 00:31:50

Or they find that the person is actually might misuse that fatwa, or might not be mature enough to handle this photo, so there would not give it to him.

00:31:51--> 00:31:57

And this is very common among the companions, Abdullah Omar, there are so many like incidents where he actually did something like this

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

today,

00:32:02--> 00:32:22

and you don't have to ask, people will start giving you a fatwa shooting Fatah watch you right? And like this happens often as well. Someone comes in asked you a question, and you really are not comfortable asked answering the question. You're not comfortable with the answer, you're not sure of the answer. And the person gets frustrated. Why you are a man then who's gonna answer my question.

00:32:24--> 00:32:42

So panela, what if you went to the Imam Malik, as we said, Remember, previously, a man comes to him from a Muslim from Morocco. from Morocco comes the man medic, and he has so many questions. You know, they he's carried from people. And out of 40 questions in my medical answers for 36? He says, I don't know. I don't know the answer.

00:32:44--> 00:32:51

The guy says, I came to you from Morocco. He told me I don't know. Why should I tell people you should just tell them? I don't know. It's as simple as that.

00:32:54--> 00:33:06

So this, the companions only allow, someone would ask for a fatwa. Don't ask me to ask that. That person, as that person, and that would go around, and come back to the same person.

00:33:10--> 00:33:44

And if even like, that's the problem that we the way we handle knowledge today, we think knowledge is mathematics. No, no, no, the scholars have wisdom, they know when to talk, they know when not to talk, they know what to say they know not what not to say all of this is very important. Obviously, it is why sometimes there are difficult times you find the scholars say nothing. When we say why are the scholars silent, they know what they are doing. If they are scholars, if you believe that they have knowledge, and you want that knowledge from them, at least trust that they have knowledge how to handle this very situation, and how to deal with this very question. So they are silent. They

00:33:44--> 00:33:49

know what they're doing. So leave it for them, even for them and trust, trust.

00:33:50--> 00:33:55

So knowledge is not taken in that mathematical way. No, ma'am.

00:33:58--> 00:34:05

Shelby, as I said, it was very close to the caliphs. And he was very close to the head judge, very close, that had judge for coffee.

00:34:07--> 00:34:38

And coffee used to hold him in high esteem and respect him. And if he walked in, they would give him like the best, you know, spot in that gathering, and everyone, even Elijah would listen to him. But when it didn't, you know, unless you have one of Allah, and he revolted against a judge. He made a revolution against a judge. He had around 100,000 people 100,000 people, including, like, say, who were one of the like the Imam of the tablet in

00:34:40--> 00:34:54

so they revolted against. Elijah was a very strong fit. There was like a hijab was almost taken out, but ultimately had judgment. I managed to subdue that revolution. And Amanda Shelby took part in this revolution.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

He was with international he was with Russia.

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

So after that amount of shabby, you know was in, he kept himself hot, he kept hiding for years.

00:35:10--> 00:35:22

He kept a low profile. No one knew who he was he was because and you know what had judge he was chasing them, one person after the other, he wanted to take them out. But then

00:35:23--> 00:35:40

a judge decided to expand the Muslim in our expeditions into Horus and into the areas that are known today's Afghanistan, Pakistan in these areas. So he needed more people. So he made a public radical amnesty.

00:35:42--> 00:36:22

Amnesty Is it like when you let the criminal say amnesty, right? Yeah. So he gave a public public amnesty, right? And he said, the ones who took part in the revolution of heaven and earth, if you guys take a get involved or can scribe to these expeditions, then we will drop the charges against you. So Imam Shafi goes and joins the expeditions and he goes and fights with them. But the leader of that army, he recognizes a shabby, and he writes to a judge and he says, I've got a shabby with me, bring him to me, bring him to me, brings me I need him.

00:36:24--> 00:36:27

So they actually changed him and they sent him to a head judge.

00:36:30--> 00:36:35

So when he goes to a judge, that means death, means death, what you revolted against me.

00:36:37--> 00:36:46

He enters he doesn't say a word. He lets the judge speak, he understands he's a diplomat. He knows how to speak is very intelligent. So

00:36:48--> 00:36:52

I'm going to recite or read what he just says and how he replies in Arabic And I will translate.

00:36:53--> 00:37:06

He says the man would kill to Allah He was Ernie called Allah haben. Hola. Hola. From McCord Janie Willis Willis tamina. Shut off if you call me come in.

00:37:08--> 00:37:14

from major al Tula common Zirin, one mckennan for African nurse to Maharaj de la.

00:37:15--> 00:37:16

He said

00:37:18--> 00:37:21

No, we'll come to you know, welcome.

00:37:22--> 00:37:38

Oh, as someone else, one of my my friends just learn some English. And every time someone comes, he says, Yeah, welcome. You're welcome. Welcome, but welcome means to you destruction, right. So welcome.

00:37:42--> 00:37:58

So that's how I had just received Him, He said to him, you were nobody, you were nobody, you were insignificant and I gave you a status and I gave you importance, and I brought you closer to me. And you became known because of by favors upon you, then you revolt against me.

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

He says also asla Hola, hola, me kulu ma Alta who have

00:38:06--> 00:38:10

he says May Allah rectify the meal?

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

Everything you said is true.

00:38:15--> 00:38:28

So, he depleted the anger of a head judge No need to defend himself. He depleted the whole thing he said everything you said is true. I confess as simple as that. So he sort of

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

depleted the argument and he diffused the situation. He defuse the tension and the situation

00:38:39--> 00:38:43

when he says what I can predict that can be solved.

00:38:45--> 00:38:59

What the helplessness Whoa. What am Nakhon Fie radical and daddy kabara button SPR wala phi gelatin Acquia waha. One who happened to me was terrible, Tabitha Oba.

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

He says, basically, everything you said is true.

00:39:04--> 00:39:13

But after your fever is upon us after the status that you gave us, we made a bad choice. By the way, I'm paraphrasing, I'm paraphrasing.

00:39:15--> 00:39:24

So, we did not appreciate this. And we made a bad decision. So we ended up with sleepless nights, living in fear.

00:39:25--> 00:39:47

And we didn't get from this out of this. We were not righteous, we did not achieve righteousness out of our revolution. And we did not even gain power. We did not even gain power. So basically, we lost at all in all respects, we lost, but this is the time that you saved my life. And you forgive my mistakes.

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

So had judgment. He had this he said, I forget what he said, I forgive you, you're free to go. So but that shows his presence, his intelligence was actually like, impactful. So

00:40:00--> 00:40:20

He was able to save his own life based on this. Let's go just to that side. I was meant to finish a bit early, but I want to show the humorous side of his character. So he said he had an issue with thick blooded people coming with dumb questions. Now there are people who tell you, for example, How many times should I say to my wife, I love you.

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

Come on.

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

Come on. Like he says five times. It doesn't work. Don't put a number on everything. Right? Every each couple is different. Each couple is different. Someone says, okay, you know, when I make will do when I wash my hands? How long should I keep my hand under the tap?

00:40:42--> 00:41:08

There are things that are just common sense. You don't need to ask about them. Right? So some people asked so many specific questions that even make make you sick. So remember, share, we had a problem with these people. So someone comes to him. And like he he heard him saying about what the professor seldom talked about earlier, when you wash your face if you have a beard, and it's thick. So get some water in your hand and put it underneath and rub it. So it goes through your beard.

00:41:09--> 00:41:37

So the man, he was a bit obsessed with this idea. And awesome people like say, don't really wash my hands did the water get so they wash the whole body when making a will just to make sure that actually I made doable? they wash their arms, for example, maybe seven times? Did I make it three times still? they asked themselves the question, washing their hands, sometimes 10 times, like the guy who want to remember anything. He said, You know, I jumped into the pool, and I come out and I don't know if I really made whistle or not.

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

Can I still pray? He says no, you don't have to pray.

00:41:43--> 00:41:59

He says how come I'm just asking you about like whistle. Is it valid or not? And you tell me, I shouldn't pray at all? He said yes. Because, you know, in order for prayer to be obligatory upon you, you have to be a sane human being you're not you're insane. Okay, so that's it.

00:42:01--> 00:42:26

So he said human beings, there's no prayer on you. You don't have to pray. So this guy is the same thing he said. So he came in he says, you know about you know, rubbing the beard or wiping the beard when he says I'm afraid I won't really get it truly width. So he says no problem. Just use your fingers to run the water through it is but I'm still I'm not convinced. So you know what? from the night before, soak it in water.

00:42:27--> 00:42:50

So that was his answer. So please, you know, get out of here. Leave me alone. So a man Salah hora, Julian, how you and your Julian Mohammed and your help cabana? You know, when? When you are in a state of alarm. You're not supposed to trim hair or remove it right? So some people have this obsessive thinking. Like if they refuse, they want to scratch their heads. How do they do it? Like?

00:42:51--> 00:43:08

Like this, right? And if some like they feel It's itchy here, they do like this. They don't want any hair to fall. That's not what's meant with a harem. Some people have this kind of what's worse. So the man comes to me and says, If I'm in a state of a hum Can I like scratch my buddy.

00:43:09--> 00:43:24

He says yes, you can. What's the big deal? The man says how much or how bad or how hard? Are you trying to put a number on it? Now obviously it gets frustrated with it. He says, Well, you keep track scratching it until you hit bone.

00:43:25--> 00:43:25

That's

00:43:27--> 00:43:28

okay.

00:43:29--> 00:43:46

A shabby, you know, there are times they had an mm hmm Mm hmm. Basically public baths. You know, like hammock Turkey. You go it's a massage place hot bath, something like this. So that these were very common. So remember, shabby one day goes into this and Henman

00:43:48--> 00:43:51

and he founds a man, he comes across a man called

00:43:52--> 00:43:54

the wooden od.

00:43:56--> 00:44:09

And in that moment, it seems that the man was like had no sense of shyness. So he didn't have his own he was basically naked. So when we saw him he closed his eyes. So the man wants to make fun of

00:44:11--> 00:44:28

of a shabby, but I'm gonna say in Arabic because it sounds much better in Arabic. There's a man for the wooden odb lamesa Biram for Alfa mobile shabby una colada would Yeah, but Amma Mehta Amita call Mundo Nicola was it?

00:44:31--> 00:44:36

Okay. Hello is that it was really funny. This guy was really something.

00:44:38--> 00:44:50

So he sees the man naked and he says, sit close his eyes. The guy says When did you become blind trying to pick on a shabby. When did you become blind? He said he won't allow you to expose your aura.

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

But in Arabic, it sounds really powerful.

00:44:55--> 00:44:56

Okay,

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

Someone came and asked him and he said, another guy, thick blooded guy with with this weird question. So he comes to me and he says, Yeah, but I'm

00:45:10--> 00:45:16

a terminal guru. He says, you know, the body gets sick, but does the soul gets sick as well.

00:45:17--> 00:45:23

So he looked at him and he said, yes, it does get sick. And it gets sick from the thick blooded people.

00:45:25--> 00:45:26

That's why he said,

00:45:27--> 00:45:29

No, tumbled woman, literally.

00:45:32--> 00:45:32

So one of his.

00:45:36--> 00:45:59

So one of his students had him and he kept it in mind. So this student One day, he finds a Shafi with two people. And these two people were thick blooded, known for this kind of questions. And this kind of, you know, being done. So there was Sarah, there were sort of cornering amount of shabby and asking him questions. So the student recognized that he was stuck with them. So he says the mama shabby.

00:46:01--> 00:46:06

He says, khlifa he Oh, yeah, but how is your soul? Is it is a sick.

00:46:07--> 00:46:09

So he says he.

00:46:10--> 00:46:19

He says, Oh, it's dying. I saw soul is dying now. Anyway, so he had the sense of humor. He had this sense of humor.

00:46:24--> 00:46:34

Another guy comes to me, and he says, I'm gonna read the novel because well, first he says, Mooji that's Mujahid. anamorphosis the great Tabby Professor he says hours

00:46:36--> 00:46:37

one day with mama shabby

00:46:39--> 00:46:49

indeed a jealous one Yeoman is a Belgian man on man who didn't know didn't know Islam more like a cup or a bowl. Hector wha hoo. matcha and Eva con anta shabby,

00:46:53--> 00:47:09

Alterna so shabby was next to him but the man mix them up. So he came to the to Mooji and he said you are a shabby he said Yeah. Oh, sorry. Sorry. He came to a shabby when Mujahid was with him. So he said to a shabby You are a shabby said yes. She said a billion Iblees Allahu

00:47:11--> 00:47:14

Allah shabby daddy Karlsson, Mahabharata Whoa.

00:47:15--> 00:47:18

So the basically the guy

00:47:19--> 00:47:32

he comes and he finds Mujahid was shabby. So he comes to me says you are a sham. He says yes. It is telling me about a blease Satan. Does he have a wife? Mmm, she looks at him and he says that's a wedding. I wasn't invited to

00:47:33--> 00:47:53

like I don't know this. But then he thought later on. He said Actually, I thought about it. I said he must have a wife. Because the last time Taylor says effort to know whether yet Oh, Leah. So do you take shape on social thought? Do you think she thought and his children? So if he has children, he must have wife. So he was still thinking about it.

00:47:54--> 00:48:42

Anyway, Amanda shabby, he was still had the sense of humbleness and humility. He said canalis nabble fuqaha wackiness submitted Hadith following the Kindle 40 hemen either alima amela. He said we are not the focal ha we just heard a hadith and we narrated them, but the 40 will 40 is the one that when he does something, he acts upon it. He lives by it. That's a puppy. What one day he someone called me said Dr. Elam. He said oh scholar, your item. He said in the morality momoney half Allah. He said the atom is the one who feels Allah. So he wasn't comfortable with people calling him Adam O'Shea. And that's how our self used to be. Didn't like titles or don't call me an alumna or somehow

00:48:42--> 00:48:59

had to shave. Okay, oh Adam, lamb and Mufti are bound for hammer. This, all these titles, these are worldly things. So the seller didn't like these kind of titles, Rahim Allah, Allah, He lived

00:49:00--> 00:49:44

till the age 7979. So he lived a long life life. He lived a long life he died the year one or three or one or four after he won or three or four after Hydra has such a rich he had such a rich life full of teaching and learning and funny jokes as well that were purposeful and respectful for him Allah to Allah. So as I said, it's important to know you know the important figures in our history and learn from them then from them, by the way in nowadays shall not say me and although being very studious, he had a sense of humor. It's a tacit sense of humor. Anyone who listened to the classes have shaken up I mean carefully, you would actually catch this and him, you would catch this in him

00:49:44--> 00:49:58

Rama to lolly. So I remember one day someone asked me and he said, You know I married a wife. And obviously because the the chef was talking about, you know, before a marriage, any kind of deficiency in the husband or the wife should be declared should be declared

00:50:01--> 00:50:10

So the guy had this and he came and asked the chef, he said, You know, I married a wife. And they didn't told me about anything. But later on after marriage, I realized there was some teeth missing.

00:50:11--> 00:50:15

in her mouth. The chef said, Does she bite you?

00:50:16--> 00:50:17

He said, No, I said, Keep her.

00:50:20--> 00:51:01

So this year had this kind of sense of humor as well. Okay, and it's good, it actually helps people relate. And it's why it was accessible to him a lot, and a lot, like made him so accepted and loved by so many people. And this is why a lot benefited a lot of people through his classes. He's recorded classes and his books, and his fatawa him on law how to add. This is basically about an amount of shabby as I said, next week can show a lot of halaqaat will be again after Asia, keep it after Asia when the time changes. So in two weeks from now, it will be off tomorrow, and two weeks from now will be up tomorrow because most likely will be 730. So we're probably starting around

00:51:01--> 00:51:14

maybe quarter to eight or 10 to eight which is a good time to start the halaqa Jazakallah Heron Baraka comes along. So let me know where to start to set up I apologize, I won't take any personal questions because I need to rush behind already.
