Mufti Menk – Signs Of A Confused Scholar

Mufti Menk
AI: Summary © The um rights have created a group of people who are looking for guidance and advice. The group is not looking for words against one another, but rather calling out names and saying that they have lost the plot and argument. The um rights have also created a group of people who are not known by the public, but are being taught by men and women who have dedicatedly worked hard to read the Quran.

We have generations to worry about. The Ummah,

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

we have to worry about. It's not about

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

you and I. Please, oh dear scholars,

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

I'm sorry to say it, but I have

00:00:10 --> 00:00:11

to say bluntly,

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

behave yourselves.

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

Here are the masses looking for guidance, not

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

looking for swear words against one another. You

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

find one calling the other names. And what's

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

the other one doing? He will smile and

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

say, may Allah forgive him. And he will

00:00:23 --> 00:00:25

keep on doing the work. My brothers and

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

sisters, recognize them. When you hear a scholar

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

belittling another,

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

understand it's a mental problem.

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

Understand it's a psychological issue.

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

Understand it's a complex that they've developed thinking

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

that they know and everyone else doesn't.

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

And understand when a scholar begins to sway

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

at another and scoff at another and belittle

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

another, it's a sign he has lost not

00:00:49 --> 00:00:50

only the plot

00:00:50 --> 00:00:52

but even the argument.

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

You know, it's like kids when you're playing

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

a game and you're a big guy and

00:00:56 --> 00:00:58

the little guy comes and actually wins. What

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

do you do? You spoil the game and

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

you say he's an idiot. He's a dog.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:03

He's a puppy. He's a whatever. He's a

00:01:03 --> 00:01:05

pig and so on. May Allah forgive us.

00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

These type of words are being used by

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

those who are supposed to be carriers

00:01:10 --> 00:01:13

of the deen of Allah, of the Quran

00:01:13 --> 00:01:15

and Sunnah. My brothers and sisters, do you

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

really think those are our true leaders? Or

00:01:17 --> 00:01:20

should we excuse them? Should we excuse them?

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

Because if we're going to go back and

00:01:22 --> 00:01:23

fight back,

00:01:23 --> 00:01:25

what will happen? We will create a public

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

disaster for nothing. We're going to make a

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

fool of ourselves as an Ummah. The truth

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

is we make dua for them and we

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

carry on.

00:01:39 --> 00:01:41

The Quran teaches us when the ignorant

00:01:42 --> 00:01:44

and the arrogant, the Juhal,

00:01:44 --> 00:01:47

when they are communicating with you, the only

00:01:47 --> 00:01:49

thing you can say is salaam peace and

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

you walk away. Maintain your peace. Keep the

00:01:51 --> 00:01:54

peace among the people and continue. Allah will

00:01:54 --> 00:01:57

grant you goodness. My brothers, my sisters, it's

00:01:57 --> 00:02:00

about time we as the Ummah, the masses,

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

realized and recognized

00:02:03 --> 00:02:06

those who make a true effort and constantly

00:02:07 --> 00:02:10

serve the ummah. They serve humanity. They go

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

out, they feed the poor. They go out,

00:02:12 --> 00:02:13

they teach

00:02:13 --> 00:02:16

diligently. There are people we don't even hear

00:02:16 --> 00:02:19

of who have produced huffar. They have produced

00:02:19 --> 00:02:21

so many of the young people learning the

00:02:21 --> 00:02:24

Quran. You and I were taught by men

00:02:24 --> 00:02:26

and women of knowledge who have

00:02:26 --> 00:02:27

dedicatedly

00:02:28 --> 00:02:29

trained us when we were young to read

00:02:29 --> 00:02:32

the Quran. No one even mentions them. No

00:02:32 --> 00:02:34

one even knows them at times. Those are

00:02:34 --> 00:02:34

the awliya'ullah.

00:02:35 --> 00:02:37

Those are the friends of Allah who dedicatedly

00:02:37 --> 00:02:38

work

00:02:38 --> 00:02:38

quietly teaching alif

00:02:39 --> 00:02:40

alif.

00:02:42 --> 00:02:44

Those are the ones who get a full

00:02:44 --> 00:02:46

reward. Massive and they are not even known

00:02:46 --> 00:02:48

by the public. They are known by the

00:02:48 --> 00:02:51

angels who carry their sadaqa jariyah, the reward

00:02:51 --> 00:02:52

on a daily basis.
