a privilege on myself

00:02:12--> 00:02:16

to be here today with you in Hanzo. Sharif, Mashallah.

00:02:17--> 00:02:24

To be invited by the hamming Foundation, Dr. Dubois and all his colleagues and all brothers and sisters,

00:02:25--> 00:02:29

it's good to be at this very blessed it gathering halacha

00:02:31--> 00:02:34

Allah Spanner that accept or recitation

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

of Quran

00:02:38--> 00:03:20

recitation of the Buddha, which is a very beautiful poetry that we've been reading and reciting since childhood. I read this I started reading this when I was five actually, I like some of the children here mashallah, you know, I told them family people used to recite, so common things, especially, when when I was about six, I sang the Buddha in a gathering of birth to 3000, pupil size to start, I used to sing the sheets when I was 567. I stopped singing after that. There's nothing wrong with it. But of course, when you grow old when your voice no longer remains with you, but I think it was it was about five or five and a half, six, when I first sang, I still remember the

00:03:20--> 00:03:24

first lines of poetry MohammadReza you didn't go up on the

00:03:26--> 00:03:26


00:03:27--> 00:03:36

And I will also share another thing with you was that I actually recited this. And it was quite strange. Because one of the Imams of Harlem

00:03:38--> 00:04:05

was actually in custody now. And he was actually quite balanced chef Mohammed bin Abdullah civilian he was he was the Imam of Harmon. Locker McCollum very old he's passed away like 10 years ago now but he's he's been he was a mom of the both hands for 30 odd years. All these others I will just know his son was a new mom was a passed away he had accident was a very old his lead Resharper is sometimes quite short and old. Since 1970s. Till around 2000 He was anyone at the end he was

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


00:04:09--> 00:04:20

So he visited our city and he came to my house in less so with some shoe and there was the sat there for like half an hour in I think this was in the 1980s mid 80s.

00:04:21--> 00:04:25

So my father told me to read some books in His presence.

00:04:26--> 00:04:29

We didn't know politics at that time anything.

00:04:31--> 00:04:47

Read 100 evacuees and mashallah very good having me sit in his lap after I finished reading, and I read the whole because that was the first machine that I learned as a child. So and he was quite happy. And he was a surgeon which I'm not used to it used to be very

00:04:48--> 00:04:50

balanced in his ways.

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

Rahim Allah.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

Have mercy on him. He's passed away now. Anyway, today's topic that has been given

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

To me,

00:05:02--> 00:05:10

I don't want to take too much time, but it's a very important topic that we probably hear and must have heard about this issue is related to this topic many times.

00:05:12--> 00:05:21

It's just a reminder, the Quran says whether in a week rotten foul, no meaning remind and reminding benefits the believers.

00:05:23--> 00:06:03

I feel that this is a very important aspect to talk about and reminding one another. We can talk about the value of time we can talk about how important it is in Islam, to look after and preserve and save God, this great Nerima this great gift that ALLAH SubhanA dialer has given us which is time, but I want to look at it from a different angle. We hear many talks, maybe hotbars and talks and we read many Quranic verses and Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the importance of valuing time. We hear that many times but this is why the title is

00:06:04--> 00:06:10

avoiding futile discussions and acts and activities.

00:06:11--> 00:06:26

We find sadly, despite a lot of emphasis in Islam, on the preservation of time, many of us we find ourselves in either futile activities, and I will

00:06:28--> 00:06:33

explain what futile means or futile speech and organization and discussion.

00:06:35--> 00:06:44

The Quranic Surah when Assad in the in Santa Fe Husa Illa Larina Amaroo for me to say the head with also will but also be sub

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

Allah takes off by the time he says well, acid

00:06:50--> 00:07:04

everyone knows the Surah, one Lhasa in Santa Fe hosts in the Lavina Amador Amador Saudi had for the last over the last several small uniques amazing surah.

00:07:06--> 00:07:09

Indeed, mankind is in loss.

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

You know what this surah is saying that

00:07:14--> 00:07:25

time of art takes an oath by the time and when are most proud of that it takes an oath by something that means that this, what he's taking an oath by is great in the sight of Allah, by time when acid

00:07:26--> 00:07:40

WoW is focused on here for oath. And then Allah says in Santa Fe hustle. Indeed, mankind is in loss. In other words, by default, we are losing something right now.

00:07:42--> 00:07:46

Indeed, humanity, mankind is always in loss. That's the default.

00:07:47--> 00:08:09

Unless you do something with your time, so time, if we don't utilize time properly, then we are in loss. This is the meaning of the surah. It's like, you know, if somebody, if we have like a massive, like a piece of ice or an iceberg, or you put you put an ice in a glass of water, and just leave it.

00:08:10--> 00:08:24

It's dropping, drop by drop. It's melting, life is melting seriously. Sometimes we don't realize we don't think but sometimes we do think you only say subhanallah time flew by.

00:08:25--> 00:08:36

We will just make this comments. It's actually one of the signs of the endless and so hidden behind the messengers of Allah by using them. So you had the honorable sermon, one of the Time Signs of the final our time will fly by.

00:08:37--> 00:08:56

You always be thinking, you know, people are thinking their money's coming. It's coming millennium. That's where nuclear was coming. 2003 It's definitely coming 2005 2012 It's 2015 Right in the middle of March, beginning but it's entered. Before you blink. It's really been on my mind.

00:08:57--> 00:09:02

You remember I was 25. Now I'm 35. Now I'm 37. Now that is

00:09:03--> 00:09:15

why it is time cold. It's just it's so quick and fast. I personally took him from my own perspective. last 15 years to 1314 years. I do not have a clue where they've got

00:09:17--> 00:09:51

nice, I finished. I'm still studying and I'm still a student, of course and 100 labios students, but official study. I completed it in 2003. And I came back. Actually I was in Syria for two years. I came back from Syria in 2003 2003 to 2015 is 12. Literally 12 years, day in day out day in day out Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. We can next weekend, January March, Ramadan is coming now it's winter. Now it's spring. Now it's Ramadan. It's not hard to do. And it's slight.

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

People in their 40s people going into 50s An average nowadays usually, average lifespan the doctors and the medics

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

tell you better, you know, but aren't you looking at 60s 6570?

00:10:07--> 00:10:12

It's like, you know, if someone goes beyond 40, then you it's like, you know, people see life starts at 14

00:10:13--> 00:10:52

Like Enza 40 Read, it's like now you're just relaxing your mama cod Rahimullah, what are the annual? He finished when he reached fi 50? He said that said, I've finished writing and doing Dawa, and all the, you know, traveling and all this, you know, now, with the holy rebirth, he said, That's it. Now I'm just going to go into seclusion and spend the rest of the few years that I've got my life to dedicate to the rebirth of Allah, because it's unfortunate. That's it, no, it's finished. I mean, that's what he, you know, did for himself. And I'm not saying everybody should do that, of course, Noah was given a proper 14. So it doesn't mean that you know, stops, but it just shows that after 40

00:10:52--> 00:11:09

Now, you have to be serious. This is why some scholars say that if somebody doesn't change our body, that is very less chance of the person changing, but we need to change from early not just 4030 20 life is passing by when asserting in internal affairs also.

00:11:11--> 00:11:34

In remade mankind is in loss. In other words, if we do not do like a moment of as it says in the hero, Medina that if someone does not utilize their time, in any worldly or beneficial, next worldly, or this worldly, beneficial activity, then you are in last. Now you see normally what happens there are three types of things we can do.

00:11:35--> 00:11:43

Either we utilize the time in good deeds, like hamdulillah we're using the time right now in good deeds.

00:11:44--> 00:11:46

Is that beneficial or harmful? Or is it

00:11:49--> 00:11:54

or Allah protect us reserves and you know, Safeguard is the opposite of that.

00:11:55--> 00:11:59

If we utilize time and haram activities, is that beneficial or harmful?

00:12:01--> 00:12:02

What's in between?

00:12:06--> 00:12:13

I don't know that benefit whatsoever someone just sitting there just like sitting doing nothing. Sometimes just doing nothing

00:12:15--> 00:12:55

at all, sleeping is something beneficial. Eating is something that's beneficial eating not overeating. Eating is beneficial. Having a positive good conversation is beneficial exercise is beneficial this worldly benefits and the next will be you know, you know all the examples of things I'm talking about this world if you made the right intention all the even the worldly activities become active very bad. So you Manuel Hassan, he says Rahim hola hola Zadie has two ways of saying his name your mobile Rizzoli and the society. Some scholars prefer bizarrely some say Hola, Sadie. I follow the opinion of the first one because so you remember the Saudi Rahimullah he says in his

00:12:56--> 00:13:02

hearing that the one who's in the middle is actually also is in loss

00:13:04--> 00:13:29

because of the solar because the example of that, give you an example for that. If we have exams, go to test and they say exams start at 9am till 11am. That's your exam time. We enter the examination hall and our the paper papers are given to us the test papers. Now somebody

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

starts writing all the wrong answers, or rips the paper and throws it away. And or someone let's take that example. Incorrect answers. That's harmful.

00:13:42--> 00:13:58

Somebody writes the correct answers. That's beneficial activity. That's someone using the time in a good way. The harmful when someone's committing sins. That's like using incorrect answers. If someone says okay, to nine o'clock, I'll just go to sleep. I won't do that.

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

I'm gonna do anything harmful?

00:14:02--> 00:14:09

Am I ripping the paper? Am I writing incorrect and I'm not writing the correct answers, but neither am I writing the incorrect answers. I'm just sitting there

00:14:11--> 00:14:23

is that person in benefit or in loss? Loss harmful, despite not doing anything he is in loss is the exact example of the middle category that apparently you're not doing anything

00:14:25--> 00:14:54

haram or unlawful, but used to wastage of time in itself is harmful. Therefore, it is very important. Life is a very short stuff. It's like you know, it's liable whether whether it's like potez Hayato, and fasten to outdo for guillemot, Mother Amina and so on in toxic behaviors. Your life is a combination of a few breaths, each breath you take a portion of your life has gone.

00:14:56--> 00:15:00

A lot to save a limb Dr. Ocata you hear this one?

00:15:00--> 00:15:07

returns, it's like a sword. If you don't cut it and cut you basic, if you don't utilize the time, and then time will consume you.

00:15:08--> 00:15:25

It's amazing Now, for those people who value seriously, if we look at this books on this topic, it's a very vast topic, but I really encourage you to read a book is a very good book. It's in Arabic translation to English. One of the great reasons for us, one of the great scholars shareholder

00:15:27--> 00:15:42

value of time. Look at some of the incident, you know, some things are unreal, from the seller from the early Sahaba. Who, from the early Imams, something's unreal, how they, you know, I have one of my teachers saying that

00:15:44--> 00:15:47

life was more difficult in the earlier times.

00:15:48--> 00:15:58

You want to eat food, one food, just go to the cocoa and that's it, you know, gas, white, done normally the lights just

00:15:59--> 00:16:26

on warm it, microwave food inside. If they wanted to eat food, go and get wood, you know, the way they'll burn the wood and then fire etc. Anything even pan out is when we're even writing books already made when they had to write, they would have to prepare the ink. They would have to have to sharpen the word. You're gonna have your Ascalon you'll have the Obama had a great human, he wrote for Turnberry, 16 thick

00:16:27--> 00:16:36

16 thick volumes. Common shields are hereby people can't do that today. And he wrote with a wooden pen.

00:16:37--> 00:17:01

And it's written in his biography that you know, when he had to sharpen his pen because after a while, you'd have to sharpen the pen because we didn't paint he would make sure he would do some of that I'm not wasting my that my time you know, the middle multitasking, you would read Subhan Allah who will be handy is on the line audience and his family even though he's doing something beneficial but multitasking

00:17:03--> 00:17:05

some unique examples.

00:17:06--> 00:17:17

You imagine 16 volumes we can only read 16 volumes in our life. This is one of the many books University already mentioned him like the guy was a genius.

00:17:18--> 00:17:26

You feel that he made it like an intentional and took an oath he does not know subjects on planet Earth X seven when I write about it.

00:17:27--> 00:17:39

Every subject Hadith within Hadith has 20 subjects if you talk about as Babu rude you know the background of the Hadith masala and Hadith Madhu Hadith.

00:17:40--> 00:17:52

Every aspect is got books and now in fact, that series got a series of jewelry. He's got another Tafseer through numerous books. And he finished all of this by age 40

00:17:54--> 00:17:56

Because 40 Then he said that's it. I'm done.

00:17:57--> 00:18:04

There was one of the great scholars from the subcontinent two 300 years ago he moved up to higher Lucknowi he passed away I think he was 39 or something

00:18:06--> 00:18:09

around that time, you must works was a great jurist of

00:18:11--> 00:18:15

yours works Yama Novi amazing example.

00:18:16--> 00:18:19

No, no, we didn't even marry I think that also helped to

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

there was a musician.

00:18:22--> 00:18:48

But there was some Imams who actually like there's a bookshop, that wrote a book called Alma, reserve and Medina at the Rhode Island zone watch bachelor scholars who prefer knowledge over marriage. It's got a list of 33 biographies of 33 great scholars, including a few few females are one of the famous one you must have heard of, who lived over 100 years. Karima Marzia.

00:18:49--> 00:19:26

She was known as had data and most neither one of the ladies who had the highest chains of hadith is not in at a time. Because she was she went she was she lived I think 100 100 or something like that. So people used to travel from all over the world to just to take pictures of Hadith because she had to hide it Senate. Even though people traveled you have some people here and there's two things. I was talking to the students today in the morning you know the ones who study daily to become scholars. This subject came that we have this Darius This is a side topic we have their eye on the wire. One is to understand the Hadith.

00:19:28--> 00:19:45

You will study Hadith and Quran to students of sacred knowledge to understand the meanings go deep into them. The background the fact of it, you know how rules are derived. That's one aspect of Hadith that's called derive and then you have another which is called

00:19:47--> 00:19:54

the why is narrating just you don't even if you don't understand is it's a spiritual thing. Sometimes what happens,

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

people can get too attached to one another

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

Give the other

00:20:01--> 00:20:25

this could happen. And this we see sometimes this craze within some students or so called students, they will have no understanding of the meanings of the Hadith, but they're traveling here. They're traveling here. They're traveling there, they've got 343 differentiated, just gathering Assad eat without any understanding. I heard from a woman who was in Madina, Munawwara student of Chicago.

00:20:26--> 00:20:43

He was saying that I totally disagree when people come to you for the jobs, give me a job. Like what have you studied? Nothing. You just read one night give me just give me Joseph says, I don't like this study properly. Go through the understanding of them, we shall always give each other and this is a Christmas special.

00:20:45--> 00:20:50

I know this one brother is a young brother. He's got like 3400 and something shoe

00:20:51--> 00:21:03

from Fez. And from here I'm from Yemen. Like, he's very rich. Millionaire, like his father is very rich just takes a plane. fares. Next plane here is a gathering of a sonnet.

00:21:04--> 00:21:15

And it's just that is good to a point humble liner. We all have chains and but that's spiritual, that's barber that's like icing on the cake. If we don't have the cake, we're gonna do with the icing.

00:21:16--> 00:21:23

That's just the you know, the decoration or the side dishes we don't have don't have the main which is, understand the actual Hadith.

00:21:24--> 00:21:39

Just to say I linked to this chain of link to this link is good. It's spiritual, but you need the actual knowledge as well. So this is a craze, especially in airports, Bahrain and Kuwait. And I know lots of people who travel.

00:21:40--> 00:21:48

And there was this one one brother, who is He's a chef, he studied but I was telling him I said to him, this is why called Salafi Sufism.

00:21:50--> 00:21:54

Because many have this this crazy. I don't like to use terms anyway, because.

00:21:55--> 00:22:03

But this craze is a lot in Gulf countries. You know, you have students studying in Medina university, they don't accept Sufism.

00:22:05--> 00:22:11

But not in this case. The chef, the chef and the chef, I say this is your human nature.

00:22:12--> 00:22:28

This is exactly what others you know, they go to a chef and they want to stay in the company or shoe. But because you don't accept that it actually you know, they got this shirt. And this is only one of the bills or one student was actually it is a which is a good stunt student who knows a lot and mashallah he lives in

00:22:29--> 00:22:47

Judah, he came to study and I know him really well. He's very balanced, but some have been played. And he every shower, he's going to he knows the age of the Shehan. This was why and this was what is required. And this is the chef and wildlife study is 73 years old. And this one is shot that our man of Catan he was in

00:22:48--> 00:22:54

Fez in Morocco, it's got one of the highest as I need his he knows everything about every shell.

00:22:55--> 00:23:00

This is exactly you know, the people of the soap do the same, we're just doing in a different way.

00:23:01--> 00:23:04

So anyway, this was a sentiment but

00:23:06--> 00:23:27

people like your mama know, your love. And we look at some of the examples of the early scholars to unique how, you know some of them. If you took take the average of the life some of them wrote like 60 pages a day, wrote in regenerator power is 60 pages a day writing, not reading.

00:23:28--> 00:23:50

You only think that mashallah we live in a time we do so much writing and reading a thesis and you know, I know we do do our PhDs or whatever. But the examples of the earliest caller says it's unique and it wasn't like, you know, just go to Google and search and you know, just iPads and this and all the things that we have at our disposal.

00:23:52--> 00:23:53

Despite that, just imagine

00:23:55--> 00:23:58

the there was one Imam isn't the Hanafi Madhavi. Imam

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

offsuit he wrote

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

down the well.

00:24:09--> 00:24:50

In every chapter, one of my teachers with money, he writes about this, because he really visited the area Kurdistan, the place because he's traveled on this country's roads, travel logs. So he went to Kurdistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, so he went to the actual place, and they showed him the world as well. So he wrote the whole about it, that if you look at his book, at the end of every chapter, he wrote, how many hundreds of pages dictating without any reference, this is dictating, doesn't have a library printer, we just told the student to come up to the top and it's just at the end of if you look at if you look through the normal surfaces and offsuit an end, that I've come to the end of

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

this chapter, every chapter who will end with words of you know, making dua that Mr. Allah and Faraj Manhattan carabiner we asked

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

bar for opening, you know from this, this imprisonment of this bike and etc. And then the last chapters is already commerce, two thirds of that book

00:25:11--> 00:25:12

writing in prison.

00:25:14--> 00:25:32

So amazing works people love them because they were very particular. And you get some examples of that today, I'm sure you might have seen some examples of some issues and teachers. No, but seriously, you get some examples, but only those people who have really value the time every minute, every minute,

00:25:33--> 00:25:41

one of our teachers wrote a book because every after every appointment, you will have to three minutes over two years in order to book within those two, three minutes.

00:25:42--> 00:26:08

One person's appointment ends when people come to see 1058 Okay, next person has been given the time 11 o'clock. So that person will go the next one that comes into scope, take the reference out the people and just say the reference. And tomorrow, again, five minutes or 10 minutes here then two minutes next appointment two minutes, 510 minutes, over one and a half years, he wrote a book of those one and a half years of those two minutes.

00:26:12--> 00:26:37

And used to tell us that when I go home, I think beforehand, I know that when I go home, the food will be like prepared when you think about five minutes. From beforehand. I've made my mind up in those five minutes, how will I spend five minutes ovulating? Do I need to return someone's phone? Do I need to write a letter do I need to check something every second matters and work to overlaminate some of them said

00:26:39--> 00:26:42

it's more valuable than gold. But for the one who really values it.

00:26:44--> 00:26:59

We can make a lot of our time and those kinds of people who read it even in a worldly sense those people who value the time they do a lot of things but we're talking about from the Islamic point of view some some amazing, amazing, you know, unique

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

accomplishments people have done in their lives because they value the time they've avoided low which is few times

00:27:09--> 00:27:10

when Latina,

00:27:11--> 00:27:16

Latino, Latino harsher on the second thing, versus when Ladino whom and you know

00:27:18--> 00:27:30

who other people are further known. Those believers are the believers of further of success. The first thing Allah says Allah Allahu Allah to him, Hashem, those who are

00:27:31--> 00:27:38

devoted, who have concentration, who opened the Salah with who Sure, and that will Lavina HomeReady love will be more than a

00:27:40--> 00:27:49

second, so important, those who turn away from lower from futile activities. Lago This is the meaning of love now is basically

00:27:51--> 00:28:12

those activities that have no worldly benefit on or no next worldly benefit, whether it's a verbal statement, or whether it's a physical activity, whether it's a verbal statement or a physical activity, we have to first of all, of course, ensure that verbal, we don't say anything, which is haram, and that's beyond

00:28:14--> 00:28:17

a serious believer. But then after that,

00:28:19--> 00:28:21

there are ways that we waste

00:28:22--> 00:28:30

our time, futile, avoiding futile activities and discussions. Now, there's many ways this can happen.

00:28:31--> 00:28:41

How future activities or future discussions can take place. Sometimes what happens is that we sit around will gossip.

00:28:42--> 00:28:48

Gossip is to be avoided. Gossip about what we might think we are doing something good.

00:28:50--> 00:28:51

But the gossip

00:28:52--> 00:29:08

sometimes people like to and this gossip could be on online forums. People sometimes like to talk about issues that have no benefit, we will never we think it's Islamic, you know, it's beneficial. There is no benefit, we will not be questioned about those issues, and

00:29:10--> 00:29:13

there's no need to go into the discussion.

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

Like, you know,

00:29:17--> 00:29:25

I remember once my teachers was able once he got a phone call, late at night. He was hypotheticals and these kinds of discussions.

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

At home somebody called 11 o'clock at night.

00:29:30--> 00:29:31

His wife picked the phone up

00:29:33--> 00:29:36

to the show. This was mentioned this

00:29:37--> 00:29:43

11 o'clock at night. Nobody really has his number but this must be somebody something serious. He's got the number

00:29:45--> 00:29:50

somebody's on the life support machine, they need to know whether they should put the life support machines off or is it something like that, you know,

00:29:51--> 00:29:55

that kind of you know, critical condition that you call you know, somebody to ask for a photo.

00:29:56--> 00:29:57


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

I guess

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

Brother what's happened? So actually this some of our brothers here, we all sat here, we're just relaxing. We're having a discussion. There's some debate taking place. You know, the people in the cave of horrible golf, the people in the cave. Allah says, well, Kalamoon boss hidden behind the dog is a group discussion. What was actual name of the dog? We're having a debate is with old coin and asking

00:30:20--> 00:30:21

the name of the dog.

00:30:23--> 00:30:33

Was it complicated to me? Or what was he? saying to me was good to me when you're having a discussion. So let's let's just city, sometimes people just like to discuss issues like that

00:30:34--> 00:30:46

discussion over futile activities a few times discussion, there's no need to know about these issues. There's no benefit. Okay, there might be some benefit, but there's no critical issues. This is why

00:30:48--> 00:30:51

the Hadith that says we're the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that

00:30:52--> 00:31:20

all the Quranic verses will lead us Oh, and usher into the conference, as to many Christians. And this is why after after that particular Quranic verse was revealed the Sahaba badiola One would very rarely even God, ask the messenger SallAllahu wasallam. Don't say that, to me would sort of how that someone out from outside would come and ask questions so that we get some benefit, because we're very scared to go and even ask him questions.

00:31:24--> 00:31:26

Based on that, there's a whole book

00:31:28--> 00:32:06

that how the setup would be discussed these hypothetical questions, because, you know, one of the things I kind of felt they say that there's too many hypotheticals. This is one of the objections. And if you felt that, if this happened, or if that happens, was that wrong? Because from the early setup from the Sahara, and there has been condemnation of hypotheticals so sharply photograhy wrote a whole book book Sorry, man heard you serve. And it's so early female America, the sell offs way about asking questions regarding those things which have not occurred, if something occurs and you ask a question, this has happened, no problem. So he wrote a whole book that there's nothing wrong

00:32:06--> 00:32:15

as long as it's you know, students discussing and important things that it's possible to occur and to give evidences like, you know, for example, Imam we know his time.

00:32:16--> 00:32:18

He, if you look at him know is much more.

00:32:20--> 00:32:31

No, no, he was unique as well. So amazing. Muchmore is an amazing work for the folk AHA discussed. In that time. We're talking about business buying and selling,

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

okay, each urban couple will offer an acceptance. So in that you will pick up uz wallow unoriginal, and if you find a person, if he was to be on, if there's one person, the buyer on the other side of the mountain,

00:32:49--> 00:32:58

and the seller is on the, on this side of the mountain, and they both can't see each other, but they can hear each other.

00:32:59--> 00:33:10

And they can recognize each other's voice, and there's no ambiguity in knowing each other. And it doesn't lead to a dispute. And if one of them says, bear to eye cell,

00:33:12--> 00:33:20

and the other one shouts from the other side of history to Cameroon, I accept you an academic debate will be completed.

00:33:21--> 00:33:25

They said at that time, who's going to be on one side of the mountain on the other side of the mountain EGL.

00:33:26--> 00:33:38

Now, this text is used for phone and you know, all sorts of transactions, you job. And if you said, if they wrote that he had to be physical, you have to be in the maintenance in the same gathering to be able to do to buy and sell,

00:33:39--> 00:34:01

then there will be no international business. No importing and exporting none of this. You find all classical texts, when they wrote it, it was inconceivable, you cannot even imagine somebody would do that. And those same texts of the Hanafy field or shelf AFL and all the classical Factbooks those texts are being used now, for many issues.

00:34:03--> 00:34:04


00:34:05--> 00:34:29

those kinds of discussions not a problem, but sometimes hypotheticals are like this one, you know, I'll give you an example of Ireland. So that kind of hypotheticals are a problem, and especially students studying etc, learning. And then he opens doors for different, you know, flew out different sort of subcategory issues, and it's not a problem. But when we say hypotheticals, it's like, you know, there was one show,

00:34:30--> 00:34:31

how many self esteem

00:34:32--> 00:34:36

and the chef has just passed away. He passed away in 96. He was a scholar from the subcontinent.

00:34:38--> 00:34:44

You see, we just learned from him, he passed away. He was 94 years old, and he passed away in 96.

00:34:45--> 00:34:48

So you will choose a very old classical

00:34:49--> 00:34:49


00:34:52--> 00:34:59

And I saw him in 96, as well, just a few months before he passed away. He's not from those countries from the subcontinent. So anyway, and he always accused his fatawa is

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

fatwa published in Urdu and Arabic in 20 volumes, just as with our q&a, q&a

00:35:10--> 00:35:16

So somebody and he was very, you know, witty and sharp. Somebody wants us to be together, you

00:35:17--> 00:35:19

shall have a question. Go ahead.

00:35:20--> 00:35:23

And some of his answers are just unique.

00:35:24--> 00:35:27

Once he was sitting in Harlem in Makkah,

00:35:30--> 00:35:46

next to the Kaaba, and the other students, people who knew the Arab students knew him from our because they thought of me as works. So, one students who are studying maybe one of the found out that this show has come from India, and these guys are Hanafis. Let's go and really him, you know, so he said,

00:35:47--> 00:35:51

some students came to him. And these are like students who are studying locally there

00:35:53--> 00:36:31

will have the opinion that shouldn't follow him. Anyway, somebody has an opinion, find no problem, have their opinion, but don't enforce your opinion. On others. That's, that's the main issue here. Everyone has the right. Someone said, Look, I'm not qualified enough. I need to follow. You say no, no, you are qualified. You can't follow. Not confer no yoke. If someone is forcing someone to not follow my job is basically saying that you are qualified, not qualified or you are qualified. That's basically where it's okay. If you feel you're qualified. No problem. I feel I'm not qualified. Why forcing? Why are you telling me I am qualified? If I know I'm not qualified, simple argument. You

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

know, so.

00:36:35--> 00:36:37

So, anyway, our concluding

00:36:39--> 00:36:44

this summer students that came to this, look, we weren't, we've heard, you're a great *y,

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

great scholar of the Hanafi madhhab. But we really need to have a debate with you, because we think you're the evidences of these kinds of issues that you don't even need to debate, you know, reading behind the Imam raising of the hand, like issues.

00:37:00--> 00:37:12

Preferably, again, Graha for remote, they're not issues, especially in this time, non issues, completely non issues. So anyway, he said, You guys, you have a lot of evidences, which I'll make highlights, etc.

00:37:13--> 00:37:36

So, we will have a discussion with you. Look, I don't have to have a debate, etc. But if you were sitting here for a while, we can talk about it. I don't like debates. And this is one of the you know, I will select many of them, they will hate debates, debates, remembering said Amuro you know, they don't do any benefit. But even this time, debate us and we're gonna go out and debate and all this

00:37:38--> 00:37:48

is of no benefit. If somebody thinks something's correct, you say 20 plus 30, for the sake of Allah, and Allah if someone wants to accept what you say, fine if they don't.

00:37:50--> 00:37:53

That's simple. So

00:37:55--> 00:38:20

instead, we want to have a debate with you see, so we'll have a small discussion. So the student said, okay, but we have a condition. The condition is that whenever we discussed I think one of the who was one of the Hanafy field patients maybe reciting behind the human, you know, should you not said, Okay, what's your condition said our condition is that in evidence, we will only accept Quran, Hadith. Sorry, Quranic verse,

00:38:21--> 00:38:24

or a hadith sahih. That's it.

00:38:25--> 00:38:34

That's our condition. Any proof you bring to support your argument, it has to be a verse of the Quran, or it has to be a hadith sahih.

00:38:36--> 00:39:02

Don't tell us this Javi said this, or this person said this, or this Imam said this. We don't want to cut out Malaysia, and even Hadith it has to be saying, that's another discussion. What is he? That's whole? Like, is that subjective? I think some things that he you might think is weak, you might think it's I think it's weak. It's just opinions of people. I'm going off topic isn't a whole it's a very, you know, theological discussion. But anyway, this is just so easy. He said,

00:39:03--> 00:39:11

This is our condition. So the chef said, Okay, no problem. Fine, except your condition. But before we go ahead, can you just tell me the definition of a sahih? Hadith.

00:39:13--> 00:39:47

So the definition says, it's quite simple for students. It's simple, like anyone who studies if you studied a balcony almost or whatever. So the students of course, I know the shots I know, I know, you know, but just so that we are on the same wavelength, and I know that you, you know, immediately understand the same way. So just say that anywhere those conditions, you know, you just mentioned the definition of a site. So the students, of course, it's number one, it's that hadith that's centered, the chain is connected and you know, he'll be Rawi. He started saying it's a way to eat right before you carry on. I have a condition as

00:39:49--> 00:39:53

well, what's your condition? My condition is just like your condition.

00:39:55--> 00:39:59

Give me the definition. I'm not going to accept any other person's state

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

Ultimate opinion imam or this hobby or this seller for this Quranic idea or a hadith sahih in the definition of a sahih Hadith

00:40:09--> 00:40:14

now your condition my condition said, give me an idea of the Quran, you intervene

00:40:15--> 00:40:19

Aditi Hamza shoot, there's a Quran, you know, set up Allahu Allah.

00:40:20--> 00:40:42

In the Quran, oh, you will believe there's five conditions of the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi. Salam mentioned for conditions who made these conditions. It was It wasn't even the time the Sahaba It was much later, fourth, fifth century, using a definition of the men of later people and you're telling me don't use any men statement, your whole definition of the site here is based on what the people have said

00:40:44--> 00:40:45

to be just handled, they couldn't hear you.

00:40:47--> 00:41:02

So the same chef, somebody wants asked him a question in gatherings or shall have a question. What do you think? This is a very difficult question. You know, If a time comes and I'm doing jihad, J word, so difficult.

00:41:04--> 00:41:08

But if I'm doing, you know, proper, legitimate warfare, and

00:41:09--> 00:41:22

the Muslims are against the enemies, you know, really like, these are enemies that could wipe the Muslims on the face of the earth. We have a prophet of Allah subhanaw taala. And, you know, he's our leader,

00:41:23--> 00:41:28

what happens in that situation? He said, What happens in that situation? When

00:41:29--> 00:41:51

I, for example, if this all hypothetical, if I am just about I've just got, you know, the enemy, the leader of the enemies in my grasp, on I'm about to shoot him, and I will kill him and if I kill him, Muslims of victory, definitely Muslims of victory. That's it. But what he has done is that he's taken the profit as a shield

00:41:52--> 00:41:53

his shield himself

00:41:55--> 00:41:58

this is a very difficult question, what should I do? Should I

00:41:59--> 00:42:10

kill the leader of the enemies but of profits will have to be killed? Or should has saved the profit? That means, you know, that ultimate Vinci

00:42:11--> 00:42:12

shuts it okay?

00:42:14--> 00:42:16

When that time comes, just ask for profit.

00:42:20--> 00:42:30

When that time comes, why are you asking the ship? You don't need to ask an hourly worker moved to Russia, who asked to ask when that time comes? Just say to them profit picture, they shoot you alone.

00:42:33--> 00:42:46

That tells ever gonna come? So these kinds of hypothetical, we find something again, people you're really wasting their time. Because these kinds of issues, sometimes it's not an hypothetical, it's you know, like

00:42:47--> 00:42:52

it's deep issues of Sharia detailed deep issues.

00:42:53--> 00:42:54

But for that,

00:42:55--> 00:43:07

we need you know, people who need to discuss that number one, it has to be in a classroom setting, not on internet forums, not in messages about the default of law detail aspects of Sharia.

00:43:08--> 00:43:22

People you know, like to discuss this because the religion sometimes becomes too boring, you know, you have a discussion on on, you know, some facts aspect or talk about LIBOR, or the rules of you know, SARS, Bahamas.

00:43:23--> 00:44:03

But the moment we're gonna have a discussion on schicke, or we're gonna about Mr. Harper, or is along the throne is everywhere. Everyone that said, yes, it's, you know, otherwise, Dean is so boring. You know, we like to sensationalize things, those things that okay, this argument debate, this group, that group Yeah, this is, this is no, let's go to week or two, we have 200 evidences, what are you going to bring evidences, and, you know, this is a youth energy and the same people, we're gonna get about 4045 They laugh at themselves, and this is what we did in our youth, you grown out of it. Some people don't grow out of that sad, but mostly people grow out of it. Because that

00:44:03--> 00:44:12

youth energy, it's like, you know, the same mentality that is on the streets, you want to bring that same mentality within Islam, you know, that gang our gangs know, when they become

00:44:13--> 00:44:24

only those few issues, you know, arguing you know, about these issues on forums, you know, status isn't on internet platforms, just pages and pages, people arguing upon a non issue.

00:44:26--> 00:44:48

Now, there will be asked about that on the Day of Judgment. There are issues you can learn about no problem in a classroom setting. You know, if you go deep once you've learned the hard issues, etc. And in a pizza lesson, you're going through a text to the scholar and you're going to depth no problem. That's fine. But you know, things like we won't even be questioned about these issues.

00:44:50--> 00:45:00

I don't even ask these questions. Just last week, somebody phoned me I want to know about the profit center Well, what isn't his parents you know, I've been, you know, let it on EMA and or not, and there's a big mass

00:45:00--> 00:45:39

The argument and you know, this, this group is saying this and they're really fighting and they're gonna punch each other by reason. Just get out of it, don't even don't even discuss it, learn other things first, then maybe you know when you go he's kind of issues that we won't even be asked about in any of judgment. In Korea, nobody will ask Allah will not ask us whether he was sitting on the throne on you know, on the audition, Allah will ask us on the cover manner, manner of book or not either a book question won't be where was God? Do you know where he was sitting? A question will be do you recognize your know did you fulfill His commands for yourself? We will spend until 4am am

00:45:39--> 00:45:41

debating this issue for jargon

00:45:42--> 00:46:18

you know, the main thing to office out of budget with crucial goals the valley and these kinds of futile discussions, Islamic discussions which have a time and place in a classroom setting so these things we need to avoid in our lives young people, middle aged people as well as grown up people but you know, just preserving time evaluate what's important me know we need to what we need to do is sort of have get our priorities right. think what's important in my life, time for family time for worldly activities when it comes to Islam, how much time we can give what's important what's

00:46:19--> 00:46:47

what's more important, what should we learn about first? What requires more of our time? This is one of the you know, take mashallah from scholars and people to sort of get guidance on what is more important getting the priorities right, you shall go May Allah subhanaw taala grant restore faith each other and notice the true understanding of email accept all efforts here have totally blind and everybody else in Sharla another bless all of you and grant us inshallah paradise. I mean, you're
