My beloved brothers and sisters,

00:00:04 --> 00:00:07

a very interesting and very important topic

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

that we must discuss and we must realise

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

and understand

00:00:14 --> 00:00:16

is that amongst us there are scholars,

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

those who are

00:00:19 --> 00:00:21

teaching us. They've disseminated

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

to us the knowledge of the deen of

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

Allah

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

and they continue to teach us.

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

There will always be difference of opinion amongst

00:00:31 --> 00:00:33

the scholars. Remember that.

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

It's impossible not to have difference of opinion.

00:00:37 --> 00:00:39

From the time of the Sahaba radiallahu anhu,

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

they differed

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

and at times they differed very strongly,

00:00:46 --> 00:00:48

But none of them belittled the other

00:00:49 --> 00:00:52

because that is a disease and it becomes

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

a mental,

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

psychological

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

problem, either a superiority

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

complex, an inferiority

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

complex

00:01:01 --> 00:01:05

or simple mental illness or the fact that

00:01:05 --> 00:01:06

the person has not

00:01:07 --> 00:01:08

purified

00:01:08 --> 00:01:10

themselves. They haven't cleansed their hearts

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

because the prophet

00:01:14 --> 00:01:15

has taught us

00:01:15 --> 00:01:18

even in his presence when there was difference

00:01:18 --> 00:01:19

among the companions

00:01:20 --> 00:01:22

before they could get to Him to clarify

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

it, He made it clear

00:01:25 --> 00:01:28

that there is a certain etiquette. You differ

00:01:28 --> 00:01:30

in a way, in a manner

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

that will continue

00:01:32 --> 00:01:35

to ensure the respect of the person you

00:01:35 --> 00:01:39

differ with no matter how strong that difference

00:01:39 --> 00:01:39

is.
