take one es Salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. ala alihi wa sahbihi Manuela and my bad Good Morning, Vietnam. How are y'all doing out there? Shala Alright, today's topic. We are talking about
zipping your mouth shutting up.
Let me start off with this story. This happened to me
when I was still studying in university, so I was like, like 2020
One something like that. 21 years old. I was in Medina University.
I was in Medina University and there was a group who came for Hajj.
I'm sorry, it was a hydro maybe they came in Ramadan. But basically I was giving lectures to them the Dora, Dora, Dora al Hijra intercontinental.
In Medina, some of you might know the hotel. That's why I mentioned it, and we're in the, we're in the dinner area, and I'm speaking, and afterwards people are sitting around chatting with me asking questions. And, and I'm of the opinion, this is what we learn. And this is my opinion to that you don't do extra homeruns like if you go for O'Meara, you went for one Armineh it's like one Amara. per trip, one journey, one ombre, you don't just keep cycling through different cameras, going to Mr. Mr. Aisha coming back, back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. That's not what we were taught to do. You do one, you go for one Ramona, you perform on ometer. That's it. So I kept
encouraging people to do this. Encouraging people to do it, only do one on one on one, I'm gonna but the group that was hanging out with me after dinner, they were waiting really long, and they finally convinced them, there's a difference of opinion about the issue. They finally convinced me that please tell us how to do it. Please tell us how to do this extra Hominem. So I said, you know, finally, I said, You know what, okay, let me tell you how to do it. Even though it's not my opinion, but let me tell you how to do it. So I started sharing with them that step number one
is you leave Mecca and go to Mr. Aisha. Step number one, you leave Mecca and go to Mr. ATIA. And then as soon as I said this, there was this Egyptian uncle there. He got so mad at me, he exploded. He was like, he could there's my cough. He got so mad at me. And he's like, What is this? What are you talking about? What is this nonsense, go outside of Mecca, come back into Mecca, go outside of Mecca, and come back. And I was shocked. Like, what just happened there? He was so mad at me. And he said, listen, Muhammad, you're this young little kid going around telling people that they need to leave Mecca to do an extra camera. Where do you get these things from? And I'm in shock, because
everybody knows that's how you do an extra camera. So I say to him, he says to me, Muhammad, you need to go home and check your sources.
Then I say to him in response, like I don't know who you are, I was still 21 years old at this time. I said, I don't know who you are. But you're the one who needs to go home and check your sources. It's not me that needs to go home. You're the one who's talking so confidently. And and you need to go home and check your sources. So we got into this big debate, and I think he even like walked off. Or maybe he stayed there and he just canceled that part and and waited to the next part. But he was really mad at me. And as we know if you want to do an extra that's how you do it. You have to be given maca. And you have to come back. So this Uncle Brother is I say Egyptian because he's a good
guy Hamdulillah. And he's actually really funny guy.
Throughout our, the time that I spent with this Umrah group he used to every time he I would be sitting in the lobby, and he would pass by me he looked me in the eye. And he said Muhammad, did you check it yet? Have you gone and checked it? I need look.
I'm like you're the one who was wrong. You're the one you're the one who needs to go check it. So he kept doing this kept doing this. And then one day he sat with me.
One day, he sat with me as you before he was like going either he was coming back from solaar or whatnot. And we sat in the lobby, and he put his hand on my knee and he taught me a lesson that I'll never forget. And I've used it for like my whole life. He said to me, Muhammad, he goes, you know, in Egypt.
The chef comes in Egypt, and he's very old.
The chef comes and he has a very big beard.
And the chef comes
and that big beard is very white.
And when the chef is asked a question,
the chef always says,
well Allah, Allah, and Allah knows best. The chef always says, well, Allahu Allah. Allah knows best. And then he got a little close.
closer to me and he said to me, Hamid, don't ever forget to say that.
And I'm like, you're still wrong. It's just so wrong.
But I realized that throughout this whole activity with this with this uncle, this Egyptian uncle, I had never once said, Allah, Allah, I had never once said that Allah knows best.
And then from that time, actually, from the lesson that this uncle taught me, I said to myself, I will never, no matter how certain I am a fifth opinion, I will never say something. Unless I say, while la Jota. Allah, Allah, and Allah knows best. And Allah knows best. And Allah knows best. It's very hard to say that. It's very hard to say that when, when you're
when you're holding on to an opinion with such conviction, you're you have so much conviction, you're almost afraid to say Allah on him. Because it might, you know, mess up with your conviction. Or people might think, Oh, you're not confident in what you're saying? No, that's not what we want to do. We want to make sure that we're always this is the etiquette and the habit is to say, hola, hola. I'm actually just a side note, your Imam Bukhari has a has a chapter in Cibola. This is a sidenote, you never say that somebody died as a martyr. You always say so and so died as a martyr in sha Allah, because you don't know. So you'd say a you know, a Shaheed in sha Allah, so and so
somebody died as a martyr in sha Allah. So and so that's just, that's just a side point. But I want to tell you here, and that is how to implement this in the times that we're living in and so much communication is like, communication is exploding. And I think it's, it's even, you know, multiplied and an exponentially the amount of communications that you're receiving. And so anyone it was really interesting, I actually got a text message.
Right before I went live here, and the text message was from somebody in Canada, who is Sri Lankan, who told who was sending a message that said that a certain ingredient in the Sri Lankan meals, some coconut something Tumeric or whatever, stops Coronavirus.
Like Well, that's good to know. Thanks, tell all these vaccine people, they just need to go out for serious dinner, and everybody will be safe.
The guy didn't say a lot, even though spam.
So with all this communication that's coming in, I want to share with you guys number one, that we have to make it our habit, that no matter how convinced we are of our opinions, we should always say Allahu Allah, if you're listening to somebody, if you are listening to somebody,
I want you to start paying attention, do they say Allahu Allah at the end of their statements are not. And if they don't say it, then you need to be suspicious of that person, suspicious in a good way. But if there's such a good way suspicious, meaning that this is a person who is saying things with confidence, and doesn't say Allah, Allah, so what does that mean? It means that this person
is not humbling themselves to Allah's knowledge. I remember once you you know, somebody said to an educated chef, they said, but isn't such and such against the Sunnah? And the chef said in response, it's against the Sunnah, in your opinion, it's not against the Sunnah. It's against your opinion of what the Sunnah is, and we have to be really careful that our minds and our opinions are not Islam, our minds and our opinions are, sometimes it does match up and smokes those times it doesn't. So what we need to always say is
so what we need to say is Allah Huhtala Allah, Allah knows best and when you're listening to somebody, listen for if they say Allah annum or not, if they're not saying Allahu Alem at the end of their sentences at the end of their statements, then you need to go whoa, I actually and this is another side point.
I give speeches and people ask me questions, and when I don't know something I try to find wait till I meet somebody knowledgeable someone like chef will lead this unit
and sit with him
and ask him these questions. Should we leave this unit is somebody that you know, I kind of compiled questions together and I go to ship a lead
Another person that I would go to, before my brain crashes. I don't know why my brain is crashing today.
Anyways, I'll tell you later, my brain has crashed because I'm on a train thought right here.
So if you go and ask questions to a person, and you find that they don't know the answer, but they still talk, even though they don't know the answer, then you got to be suspicious. So I had this one question that was a real doozy. Like it was a really difficult one to comprehend. And I would ask different people, because I genuinely want to know, and most people off the top of the head wouldn't know the answer to this thing. But if somebody I could immediately because I know the question, well, if I saw a shift that I'm asking, and he's not, and he's afraid to not talk, like, so he's like, he's saying stuff, even though he doesn't know, I would rather the shift, just say, I don't
know. And done. Okay, great. Okay, well, this conversation is over, let's go, let's go somewhere else, let's go do something different. But if somebody keeps talking, even though they don't know, I used to say this in our sort of fit class, if somebody's speaking, and they say, you know, I don't know, but I tell them, forget the but just stop it. I don't know. I don't know. But forget it, just, I don't know, call us and move on. And people will appreciate it. And they'll go if you want to look it up, go look it up and that person can find a proper source, but just talking just because you don't like silence. That's not something good. So saying Allahu item's saying Allah knows best. I
used to focus only on Islamic issues. And say Allah Allah, Allah knows best for Islamic issues. If somebody asked me
what time is the bus coming?
I would like tell them but I wouldn't say Hola Hola, Ana, even sometimes I would hold myself back like it's just a bus. Why would I say hola item. But I've seen you know, after years and years of kind of separating, oh, this is a fifth issue. And this is a dunya issue. I stopped doing that. And now you say Allah on him for everything. And I think this is very important right now. Because with this Coronavirus, everybody's talking stuff about it. And like, like I said, some Sri Lankan coconut dish, and somebody is saying do this and somebody is saying do that was so much misinformation. And this is you could say even virus, I think it's even more pertinent that we all adopt this attitude
of Allah knows best. Could you imagine social media, if everybody on social media spoke and then said Allah, Allah, and Allah knows best, and they returned all knowledge to Allah subhana wa Tada. This is their opinion on Allah. And sometimes I see people who are so convinced of their opinion. And it sounds like it's a great, it's a
it sounds like it's such a convincing argument. But then when I step back, I'm like, Hey, wait a second. You haven't paid attention to this. You haven't edited. That's my fifth mind going through this person didn't say hola Island. And yet this person didn't say hola, hola, Ana. And I can say give them three ways that they're incorrect. And so even no matter how convinced they're like, but this is what the Quran says, are really are really what about this verse? Is that what the Quran says? And again, that might be at a higher level argumentation, but I just need you guys to understand you need to listen to people that say Hola, Ana, I don't know. I don't know and
especially Coronavirus. If somebody says hey, you know what this helps with with a Coronavirus and then these quota err quota Hadith?
Why don't they sell the item at the end of that? Maybe there's something you missed? A B it doesn't actually help with this. Do you understand what I'm saying? That's keep going back and saying Allah Allah Allah knows best Allah Allah Allah knows best when I was in Medina University
first year, so I gave you that earlier story. That's when I was like 21 This one was like when I was 17 years old. I was 17 years old and I live the whole North American Islamic you know, um, community we always talk everybody's got an opinion just think of Moon sighting issue. And that tells you what I what I was raised with Moon sighting issue. Everybody every topic was Moon sighting issue.
So when I went to Medina, I sat on a table.
I sat on a table with a couple of brothers. And it was lunchtime. And somebody asked a quick question. And this person started talking about that and this person started talking about that. And all these guys that were talking so much. Were all freshmen. They were all this is their first year. They actually weren't educated in Medina. They're just in Medina.
They've educated they're they're still fresh off the boat students from Western countries. Everybody's talking talking to me. But there was a Libyan brother there. He was
small, timid, look, timid type of brother. He's sitting there on the side. And he was in fourth year. University, he was in fourth year. shiddhi are very, very knowledgeable brother. And I'm sitting there, you know how Muhammad Sharif is always sitting back and watching people, you know, quiet watching. So I'm staring at him. And I'm listening to all this blah, blah, blah going around me. And this guy who's the most knowledgeable on our table is the most quiet.
So I stopped everybody from talking after a while. I'm like, stop. This guy is fourth year university. If anybody should know the answer to this issue, that should be him. And so I asked him, What is your opinion on this topic?
This is what he said to me, already said to the group, he looked up from his food. And he said, Allah, Allah
said, I don't know.
And then I said, Wait, this is like me coming from North America. It's the first time in my life. I've heard somebody not attempt to answer a question.
Because we never keep our mouths quiet. We just keep talking, even if we don't know. And so I was really, really interested in your fourth year university, you have more knowledge than all of us and you're the quiet one. You're the one saying Allah Hawkman. He's like, Yeah, a lot. I don't know.
I was in Medina for six years.
Six years and I have my own *ty I degree, and
you only get to that level.
When you study, you get to that level. When you actually see that you don't know
what Allahu Anna and I'm sure that's why all these doctors outside are so angry about social media, because they're thinking you people don't know. We just need to keep quiet. All these different areas. Just say please stop talking. We started he say hola on please hold back, please hold your tongue. Just say hola om do I really know this topic or not? And you'll find that you do not. So just step back and say Hola, Anna, and let the people of knowledge speak.
And that's it. That's a reminder for today. Well, aloha.
