If I could ask just some of the brothers who are scattered at the back to slightly move a few inches forward Inshallah, a gathering which is united and sat together. We are already disunited, they don't want to be disunited here. There's a lot of space in the middle. Maybe we've kept them for the Jews. I think, you know, they say that some places in some of them are that is in Daraa alone, Devon, I heard this from my father who used to study there many many years ago that they in the Dora Hadith, they keep the front areas spaces free for the gym students who are studying al Bukhari, and it's true, they would keep the students sit from the back, and there's a space in the front.

I would like to thank Maulana Laquan is brother was actually my class fellow and an old friend and the whole team may Allah reward them reward the efforts may Allah reward all of you for coming today and spending your time inshallah on a Sunday today right Sunday that is very important gathering.
I don't want to take too much time just briefly, I want to touch upon a particular aspect which I will require you to sort of pay attention to inshallah God. This D that Allah subhanaw taala has blessed us with this deal that Allah has given us. Islam
we should be thankful we should be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala that he gave us this Deen He created us in the Ummah of our messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
regarding this D Allah Subhana Allah says in Quran
regarding the teachings of this G Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Quran, in Luna Zela vicarage, were in the hula half moon in Lahainaluna Zelina vichara were in Allahu La Habra zone, that indeed we have revealed the vicar to you on Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Indeed we have revealed the vicar what is the vicar zikr refers to the Quran. Indeed, we have revealed the Quran to you. We're in the hula, half hula. And surely it will be us who will preserve who will protect who will save God, this Quran. What does this verse tell us? In this verse, our Lord and our Creator Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna is informing us that it is my duty, it is my responsibility Allah has
taken it upon himself. Allah has is promising us that this Quran this vicar will be preserved, protected safeguard. Indeed we have revealed the vicar in another verse, Allah says we're unzila in Aiken, vichara YouTuber Guillory Nassima Lucilla la him Oh messenger Muhammad Sallallahu
Animals and all messenger, we have revealed the vicar again the Quran to you, so that you explain to the people that which has been revealed to them. Allah has taken the responsibility upon himself to preserve to God this Quran this text. Now this verse actually doesn't mean that only Allah has taken the responsibility of preserving the Quran. Actually this can be understood in three parts. That the promise the word, the promise of preservation of guarding is three aspects of the not just one aspect, how many aspects three. Number one is this Quran? Allah says, We have revealed the Quran to you, we shall surely preserve it Alhamdulillah we praise Allah until Yom Okayama until today and you
will pay Yama we know for a fact and not just us. It's not just we are claiming it's not only Muslims are boasting historians, many Orientalist non Muslim historians they have all written they have all attested to the fact that the Muslims have a book, they have the Holy Scripture. Their Quran is such that no word no letter has been changed or altered or moved from its place. Yes, there's those seven variations we read we heard chefs at night Allah Sunday reciting, you know can I have some are same and worship Aluna. We have all of these, these are all parts of the same this these are variations, part of the same text of the Quran. Allah has taken upon him the
responsibility of preserving the text, the pneus the words the language of the Quran, no letter. No, you know, no word has been changed or moved or altered. Since the time of Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when the Quran was revealed throughout how many? 200 years, 300 years, 200 years, 500 years? Over 1400 years, nearly 1500 years until Yeoman piano. How do we know that? What's the proof? Someone asks you, brother.
Let's help Muslim Camilla, yo, Camilla. You go well, so the Birmingham you say your Quran is, you know, not tampered with? What's your proof? People ask for proof the lead? What's your proof?
I think I heard here because What's the proof? We should know? I mean, how do you know that the Quran this Quran that we have in the masjid everywhere. It's preserved. Someone told you your father told me your mother told you of course we listen to them. We accept them. But we should know. For ourselves. How do we know this Quran has not been tampered or changed to it. What's the proof? This Quran
is known as mutawatir mutawatir. Do you know what that means? Muto. This is the strongest way the strongest proof ever.
The strongest proof of establishing a fact ever is when something is related to us through multiple chains. Like for example, look, I'll ask you a question. Can somebody put their hands up?
Who has never been for our lunch? No. Have you never seen Karva?
Brother here this is a brother there there's a brother there, brother there you've never seen karma? Yes. Never seen Kava. Never. How do you know that there's a place called McCann karma exists? How do you know?
They could be an international conspiracy from family members relatives friends. Every time you meet him. Tell him Naka Hey, kava.
How do you know the whole world could be making it up? You've never seen the Kaaba everyone. They just made a constant. Is it possible? No. Because you hear from me cava and you hear from him? I've never met him.
Me and him we've never spoken so how can we conspire and make this unless we've this agenda but there's people who are telling you who have never met one another? This is what you call them with a lotta the Quran has been transmitted when Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when the verses were revealed to him, he spoke the verses he uttered the verses the Sahaba heard from the messenger SallAllahu and he was sent them groups of people relating from groups generation after generation from the generation after generation from him till today, multiple different people from different planets from different languages from different backgrounds, from different ethnicities
have been transmitting the Quran, that it's impossible for you to come to a conclusion for us to come to conclusion that this is a fabrication or a lie or somebody made this up. It's just not possible. This is why just like we don't doubt that there's a place called GABA in Maccha even though we have not seen
eat with our eyes, but it's what we call a it's absolute. It's the absolute truth. Likewise the Quran the words of the Quran is exactly the same words that Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam uttered and spoke about and related to the Sahaba from him generation. So Allah has taken responsibility that he is preserving the Quran. That's part one. And Allah uses, how is it preserved? It's preserved by me and you by human beings by by look just right now we had so many small children who have memorized the Quran.
So many children are memorizing the Quran, Allah uses individuals who priests who memorize the Quran can be burned. In our history, Quran copies have been burned have been thrown into the water in Nigeria, in Iraq, where the ink became black Chronicle, you know, people have the Quran has been destroyed. Yet, it was not possible to extinguish or remove the Quran from this world, because people have it in the hearts. And actually, the preservation to heart and mind is actually more powerful.
To know that in the earliest times, nowadays, it's sad, we everything we write, we don't use our memory in the early tense people used to use the memory more than they used to write, I have to have notes people, because we don't use our memory anymore. In the earlier times people used to rely on their memory, this was more reliable than a piece of paper. I'm sure some people there's one thing you know, your bank card, what's your passcode the phone numbers don't write it anyway. That's something people some people still write it for some people they remember this, to me, that's the only passcode the four digit number. When I put my debit card or bank card into the ATM, that
number, I don't even tell my wife.
You'll see Nobody, not even my wife, nobody. That's just that's the only thing in my head. So Quran is protected and preserved, you know, if you look at the earlier generations, so if you look at other fakes and this is not to sort of discriminate against any faith or you know, put anyone down this is recorded in history. Even non Muslim historians have written this in books that
in our in Islam I will come to par to Quran is the first part that Allah has preserved but if you look at the Christianity and Judaism,
Objective orientalist, and historians themselves have written that there is no guarantee that the Torah and the in G is the actual version that was revealed on to Musa alayhis salatu wa salam and Isa piecemeal
both if you look at Musa Salam, there's a gap, there's a generation of about 1500, they have a isnaad, what we call a chain, they have a chain, not multiple, but they have a chain in ours. The Quran is like groups of people in the writing groups, groups, groups, groups, who today they do have a chain, but that chain ends somewhere 1500 years after Musa salatu salam, they say there's somebody who was cleaning by to knock this who actually claimed that you know what, I am cleaning and I'm cleaning something and under the ground, I found the real copy of the Torah.
And then they said, Okay, this is the correct version of the Bible. We have five, sorry, four versions of the Bible for different you know, the book of Matthew and the book of Luke and the other two,
this Bible, again, they don't have a chain going all the way back to ESA. And
there was a time many 100 years after so you don't are you sir Jesus peace be upon him that many people will claiming that they have the real version of the Bible, if they love Hamdulillah. At least we don't have that if the law if you have a lot of data, but at least you know, not some Nasca saying, now we've got the 31 Juice Quran we've got 41
hamdulillah everyone's got the same exact parts of the Quran at least.
There was a big massive difference of opinion. Someone said no, we've got the correct version of the Bible. Because last, nobody really knows. Because these Bibles were written by the people who saw a Saudi salaam, it should read the history of what the Bible is actually it was people who started writing the holiday, the biography of Isa CERAM and his teachings, etc. Anyway.
So there's an incident mentioned by a non Muslim historian, that many 100 years ago there was a massive difference of opinion.
In the Christian world, that which is the correct version of the Bible, so all the great mashallah, if the great leaders of the Christian faith, the great scholars and the older Ma, the pastors and the bishops and whatever, they all had an international conference that this, this is a problem, what should we do? So they said, You know what, let's all get together, they all had a big massive event and gathering, they discussed, deliberated the issue that there's so many there's about 1520 different versions. So one of them suggested that, look, you know, what we do? Let's get all these versions of the Bible together. And let's see, shall we do? I don't know. They said, insha. Allah, I
just put that for myself. But they, they said, let's put all these versions of the Bible and in a sacred place, on a table, let's put them all on the on the table. And then all of us, what we do is at night, we all go into our rooms to our homes, and let's cry and make dua to Allah beg to Allah. Oh, Allah, Oh, God, you know, we don't really know which is the correct Bible. Oh, God, we don't know, which is the correct Bible. Please, when we when we come in the morning, just keep that Bible or those Bible versions which are correct on the table, and let the false one unless let the bottle and the false Bibles and the incorrect versions, let them all fall down from the table, let them all
fall in full. They said, Yes, this is let's ask Allah, they said, let's ask God Himself. There's no other way.
So they all agreed on this. They put all the 1215 20 different versions of the Bible on top of the table. And they all went
in the morning, all the all of them hamdulillah came back, and they came back, they saw full copies versions of the Bible intact on the table, and the rest of them had fallen down. And they said, these are the now the four correct versions, Book of Luke, Luke and Book of Matthew, these are the correct versions of the Bible. The historian non Muslim, I'm not saying this, the historian non Muslim who wrote this incident. They said, Everyone agreed to this. But till today, nobody knows that who had the keys to that room for the night. And then they realized that the guy who suggested let's do that he has the keys in his pocket.
We're not going to have su done but I don't know what happened. He had the keys.
The one who said let's keep all the Bible copies on the table and in the morning, whichever is on the floor, they are the incorrect versions and lock the Dark Knight in the pocket the teeth.
So this is with regards to the Bible, the Torah, non Muslims are saying this and writing this.
With Islam, I said Allah has taken upon Himself
to preserve in a lacuna Zilla DeCaro inner hula have to do not only the Quran, that's just part one. I just wanna talk about part one, part two, part three. Part one is this Quran has been preserved the actual text of the Quran, through generation after generation through the profile through the Quran, the Sahaba memorize the Quran from them, you know that they'll be memorized and till today, young children, boys, girls, men women have been memorizing so there's absolute, you know,
this confidence that we have that the Quran is the exact the words of the Quran are the exact ones that are revealed unto the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Number two. This promise is not restricted to just to the Quran.
It goes beyond that as well. When Allah says We have revealed the Dhikr to you on Messenger, in another verse, we have revealed the vicar to messenger so that you explain to the people so Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his explanation.
His explanation is also preserved. What's his explanation called?
And you want what's the explanation called?
Just Hadith sunnah. So part two is the promise to preserve is also for the Sunnah. Even the hadith is preserved. We have revealed this dhikr to you so that you explain the Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his explanation, his explanation, his interpretation, his explanation and interpretation of the Quran is what we call hadith is what we call sunnah.
The Sunnah is also preserved and for the preservation of the Sunnah Allah subhanaw taala. This is why we have this something cool to see. This is the speciality of our religion again, I will tell you this non Muslims have said this Orientalist that no faith has this special
allottee of isnaad chain of transmission, every Hadith today we will have the hum of scale Bukhari and I just want to explain to you what does it mean some people come and they hear, they don't know what's going on. The students will read the before he reads the text of the Hadith, there will be a Senate a chain, this chain is basically I think I once heard on a recording that students here at obika trust I think it was just one I think was reciting from Fatah Chrisman is Senate, that you have heard recited al Bukhari by your che who heard from his che from his che from his share his teacher, his teacher, his teacher, all the way to who Imam and Buhari now look what used to happen
is that in the olden times, when books were not, there were no books. There was no sahih al Bukhari Sahih Muslim sunnah to me these were not even a merger and none of these books were written. People used to relate Hadith just by word with their mouth verbally. So every time you want to say a hadith to somebody, you want to give a ban or a talk or a Joomla or whatever. You can't just say, brothers. Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in a hadith, such and such, you can't say that. People will say Sorry, brother, give the chain without a chain, our ears are closed, nobody would listen, any statement, not just Hadith. Even if you want to make an like an explanation of the Quran
or anything, even stories, that's what you'll find in books sometimes that there's like one word. Like in the Quran, Allah says Barbuda Rebecca had to curl up in worship your Lord until the opinion comes to you, what is your feed mean? Your pain, who will note your pain means death. Now, you could just try that in one half line up in the Quran means not. But before that intracerebral cathedra wherever the author will have to say, I heard from my share, who heard from his share who heard from Michelle who heard from his share of such and such with the name three lines of names.
for example, Abdullah Abdullah Abbas, the zahavi said, your being here means not
every statement was backed up with a chain. So before these books came into existence,
everyone, you could not everyone would have to relate the Hadith with a chain. That's why it will take a long time. Now do we do that? I just read the Hadith in front of you, or in a talk. Do we do that? We don't do that. Now. Why? We just say it's in Sahih al Bukhari, it's instantly Muslim. Because when the books were written, the author like Imam Al Bukhari, when he wrote the Hadith, he wrote you with a chain, then he wrote in the book, and then that book was published and printed into 1000s of copies. Now those 1000s of copies now have spread. Now you don't need to have a chain. But we do have a chain from our teachers to Imam Buhari, just as a means of blessings as a means of
blessings that this is the share who read Sahil Buhari from his teacher from his teacher all the way to the author, Imam Al Bukhari, and from him to Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the change is before every Hadith. So the second, the second,
the second aspect of preservation of D is Hadith, And subhanAllah brothers, I'll tell you this, this is a unique aspect of this ummah. The way you know if you just hear hadith is so easy to pick up Sahil Behati or Hera Hadith and people just study the effort the sacrifice what people went through, starting from Sahaba the Allahu Anhu Abu Huraira Radi Allahu Anhu was the first students a hobby, he would lie on the floor on the ground for days because of thirst and hunger, because he dedicated his life for studying the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the first mothers in the masjid of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the US herbal sofa and the Sahaba used to study
by the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, from the Hadith were transmitted. Every Hadith now for ensuring that every hadith is
absolutely authentic or not, because somebody could make something of imagined we've lived nearly, you know, close to 1500 years from Allah has nothing to sell Allah and instead of Muslims everywhere in the world, somebody could just give a hoot about same sound logical nowadays anyone could just give a hotbar of a yawn just to promote your own agenda. I heard the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say if if you don't do this, then this will happen to you you know people make this hadith up some people just see a dream and say I made it and either they've been people there's one person who said that wasn't he was indeed a non Muslim, an enemy to Islam. He said You know, I have spread
1000s of false Hadith in the Muslims in which hurt him if he had halal, halal and haram. I have a test I have made halaal into haram and haram into halal.
He said that before he died, many many like 1011 1200 years ago. People have tried a number of Muslims you know, we have a
and people who are enemies to Islam is the only thing it's all has happened from the time of Allah's Messenger SallAllahu tried to destroy the teachings of Islam. How do we know this particular hadith is correct or this is incorrect or this this hadith is not really a hadith for that, you might say you this person spread 1000s of Hadith, but at the same time, Allah subhanaw taala utilize the people of this Ummah that they gave every ounce of their life. It's unique. Honestly, you can't even justify talking about this. It's difficult to understand how they preserve this study how they preserved we have a science called The Science of a small region, or it's called a Jehovah daddy
before any hadith is transmitted, they look at that chain who is in the chain? Okay, Imam jihad is there. Today we have the bottom of the hill Buhari. This man was a unique man, unique man, an absolute gem of an individual. He is trying to gather Hadith. What does he do? He shovels the world different Maha detune. He says, Okay, what's the Hadith you have? He relates the Hadith with this chain that I heard from my teacher from his teacher from his teacher from his teacher, from the Sahara, from the sahabi from Allah's Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now this name you can just make it up this somebody could just come and say to you, brother had the henna. I was heard by
Chef this there's been this this been this give all these fancy names and make it up. Who are these names? I could just say make names. I heard from Ibrahim bin Ibrahim from Mohammed bin Mohammed from his marine Venus marine from a youth from a youth from Adam, Bill Adam from Chef Milan, Milan that this target he said that Abu Huraira de la han who said I could just make it up.
They analyze scrutinized every single narrator. First of all, who is this guy that you're talking about your teacher?
Your teacher who was in the chain, what was his name? When was he born? Who are his teachers? Where did he study? How was his character like How was his UCLA? did he offer his part time prayers? They will do research my new details books have been written you've got hundreds of books in hundreds of volumes. Any Narita you want to see you pick up Sahil? How do you find the narrator? Reporter of Hadith you want to know his life story biography account? It's all in this books like CRR Domino, Bella Dupree buta leave the Buddha the all these books every detail minut detail they'll even tell you that they used to wear leather socks or not. Would he do massage on his leather socks or not?
How would you pray salah? How would he smile? How would he talk? What would he eat when you eat fish? Was he a vegetarian? Was he an RB lamb? Someone who doesn't eat lamb? Every minut detail? You know, there was one great Imam who was in this field of scrutinizing. Yeah, he having Marine.
He is writes in one of his books he says that we used to go and investigate.
We used to go when we find a hadith that there's this person in the chain, what's his name, such and such, son of such and such? Where does he live? Kufa Okay, let's go Kufa. We should go spend a week in Kufa.
He might be alive he might have passed away if he's passed away. We go to different Masjid different localities. This community we asked the old lady, we asked his neighbor we asked a shopkeeper. Did he buy potatoes from here? Okay, was he truthful in his buying of the grocery? Did he give his your his debt on time? Did he take some money? Does he owe you any money? How is his character? How is his mama not His character, His monetary dealings all absolute investigation of his or her lack of his character of the mannerism is in his honor the salah he suffered until we are not sure we will not accept the Hadith.
You're hearing mindset when we used to go and investigate in different villages and cities. People would ask us and say to us, why are you asking so much about this person?
Is this Is it so that you have received a proposal for your daughter from him? People used to think that we are asking about someone because they've received a proposal for the Dota we will do all investigation until we give our duty and marriage to some places. Some people you know what we'll do, we'll investigate let's check everything. This was a matter of D much more important than that. And they did not differentiate between father and son and relative and nobody alluded to Madine he's a great Muhammad if somebody asked him or even in Medina your father is in one chain of hadith is related. Is he authentic or not? He said Sal agnihotra Please brother as someone else. So now I want
to ask you Oh Imam Ali Yaga Medina, telling me about your father. He didn't say my father Murad me here my but you know, like no, no. What Oh ALLAH unphysical will validator will a Praveen
be just even if it's against your own selves, your own facts
Many he said in her the D had a D in the hula reef. This is a matter of D My father he's the if his weekend Hadith don't take it from him Allah Buddha would somebody asked him about his son. He said if you want to know the truth, my son is not reliable in taking Khalifa. They did not care this is D and they spent this is hundreds of years, or even an odd year here been my insider Katan these great good Imams have been given these great Imams, they spent their lives in preserving Hadith by checking scrutinizing idolizing to the point that you know there's a German nonslip orientalist, lived in the 60s or 70s. I can't remember Dr. Springer I think his name is he writes in one of his
works. He says that Muslims have such a unique science, that no no community, no religion, no faith, no organization, no community, no one in the history of this world has been able to bring such a kind of, you know, science, and nobody until the time comes to an end until the end of the world. We'll be able to bring such a science which is the science of a small region, preserving the biographies of the reporters of Hadith to the point he's saying this I'm still quoting that non Muslim Doctor Springer, German doctor Orientalist who writes on Islam. He says that to the point that today we have half a million people's biographies preserved in the libraries. And he says
carrying on still quoting,
he says that it is one of the wonders of the world. We think only Niagara Falls is the window or the pyramids, seven wonders. This is one of the wonders of the world that Muslim Muslims have been able to press you know, bring a science in which they check every Narrator This is the meeting in an afternoon as Zelda Decra we're in LA who the half is known. When we understand this we have revealed the Quran to you. And the meaning of the Quran which is Hadith which is Sunnah, the Sunnah of Allah's Messenger SallAllahu sallam. So the Sunnah is preserved as well. The Sunnah this Imam Al Bukhari also had and I'm just gonna just turn this on this and then I just need to say the last part
I'm going to show that I don't want to take too much time but this great Imam was also one of the one of the great people who put his piece of the effort his part, his effort as well in preserving
Allah subhanaw taala created him. It seems that Allah created him to preserve Hadith. Preserve Salah he had an amazing, amazing memory. He was born in 194 Hijiri Imam Abu Abdullah, you know his full name. His name is Imam Abu Abdullah Tuscania tried to keep Konya it's a sunnah I will cause him Salah Abu salah, Allah's Messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam was labeled Qasim al bakr Radi Allahu Anhu Baskonia Abu Bakr, his name was America. His name was Abdullah Hebrew Kochava I'm gonna give her top number was his name. What was his Kalia?
Who asked him who have
sorry that can cause you will have
an older Abu Huraira Allah who tried to give your children and remember a boo doesn't mean like you have to have a son. It's good sometimes that you have a son and you call them you know, a boo. Your son's name. Like I showed the Allahu anha was called Omar Abdullah. She had no children. But sometimes anything someone's handsome you say Abu Jimmy it's the Sunnah of the Sahaba sunnah we should bring this revive the Sunnah. Miconia Izabal Abdullah, have a son called Abdullah. So but you should have this cornea. It's good give it to our children when they grow up. Have a good year. It's never too late. It's so Novolog messenger SallAllahu Sallam to Sahara. Imam Al Bukhari. He was Abu
Abdullah his name was Mohammed. His cornea was Abu Abdullah. His name was Mohammed Mohammed bin Ismail al Bukhari. Radi Allahu Anhu. May Allah be pleased with him, one of the great Imams of this ummah, born in 194 Hijiri. Now Allah created him,
if you wish to read his biography, but if you read his biography, he had a supernatural memory, supernatural memory. He himself says hold him to have the Hadith it is as though I have been inspired to preserve this hadith, I was
inspired by Allah subhanaw taala to preserve this hadith in a at a young age, during his teenage years, he knew 1000s of Hadith by heart, not just the Quran, some say at age of 11 he or a bit later on, he knew like 70,000 Hadith with a chain, the chain and this text the son of them the text by memory.
You mentioned 11 Years Old Seven T sevens.
You know 1000 edits and maybe more when it's 1112 not just the Quran we have 100 children memorizing the Quran. This is Mr. Bahari beyond the Quran 70,000. And actually, you know, in the olden times the real term half it wasn't used for someone who memorize the Quran that's great, of course, but in the real term half it was used for somebody who knew 100,000 athletes by heart. That was someone who was called half in the older generations, but like everything's gotten down, you know, all the terms like the term Mufti which gets used very easily on people like me. So, this this was Imam
Al Bukhari, Rama, Hula, hula Allah, the man who he at the age of 16, he made Hajj and I don't want to start mentioning his biography, but I'm just trying to give him like a small synopsis of how he played his role in preserving Hadith. He traveled to places like you know, after hajj when he was 16 he went to Sharm he went to miss up Egypt Misawa use Arabic tense because Shawn in that time was going to Syria but it was all those areas there on those places. He went to gufa Baghdad Basra he, he took Hadith from 1080 Different Maha dilute 1080 Different Hadith. At the age of 80. He wrote his first book or die Asada, but then he wrote another book. He wrote a few other books. And as I said,
70,000 then Allah subhanaw taala inspired him to write this great book, this great book that we're going to complete today. What's his book?
What's his book?
We're going to complete today inshallah today.
say and profile okay Buhari is his name. He was from Bahara Bahara is not algo Hara, but you know what Bukhara is Mahara is in Uzbekistan shovel, you know all the six authors. Imam Bukhari Muslim abodo Timothy let's say even imagine none of them are Arabs or non Arabs. Imam Al Bukhari is from current day, Uzbekistan till today it's called Bukhara go on your Google Maps put Bukhara you'll see a map how to get to Bukhara because their summer Candice there. It's an Uzbekistan right now I have friends from there who actually I talked to quite regularly from Uzbekistan, but there are people in you know, there's Muslims there. He was on Bukhara. In Uzbekistan. The name of his book is this is a
short we say sorry, but there's actually a full name.
Do you know what the full name of his book is? The full name of this book is a German Muslim Sufi. matassa min moody Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Sunni. He was a Yami casanave of the book, a German Muslim Sufi holy Mutasa mill. Ooh, moody Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was Sunni. He was a yummy. Why such a big name. Why something not small? Because each word gives a connotation. I don't have the time. But why is it called a German? Why is it a Sufi? No time? I'll just tell you why it's called. Because that might be important. It's called Mukhtar, sir because Imam Al Bukhari is telling us that brothers and sisters almost names this is a small motors and
everyone lots of people who speak or do know what matters most doesn't mean short. This is a short collection of Sahadi that that is a real brother Aki, give me the link from Buhari that said to know what else Imam Bukhari his himself is saying. A German on Muslim Mustafa showed connection from 600 or 700,000. If I tell you he actually says courage to whom in
the earth from 600,000 Hadith he had 600,000 From there he chose how many? How many Hadith in Sahih Bukhari
approximately 7250 How many 7250 He selected 7250 from about 600,000 that he already had sahih Hadith and he just put because if if you put all 600,000 will be having obika Trust without room for eight years. Because every Are you reading like 100 Sahil Buhari going on how can you compete he just took a collection and put it which is important.
Now some people make this mistake whether if it's I hire kala give me Daddy, what's your daily? Buhari? That's it. There's a hadith in Musa Neff of February Shaybah or Imam Adara potently Oh, I'll be happy Oh, it's in. You know, Kitab will author of the novel not by the ahi
it just doesn't make sense. He himself is saying that this is a short version. So what made him do this and I will just make mention this and that. It took him he how many? How many verses 7250 Approximately Hadith. It took him 16 years to compile how many years? 16 years.
All throughout 16 years, he kept a fast every single day.
He fasted every single day, whether it's long summer fasts or short ones, there's no shortcuts here. Some people think long nine o'clock if they follow maca 10 Sometimes some people I don't know where that's come from.
He's too fast. And I will just mention this, that he, he actually put in so much effort in scrutinizing analyzing before including any Hadith in his book, he would investigate research sometimes you travel like I said, there's one Hadith, okay, can I put this hadith in Sahih al Bukhari in my book.
I have to go who for three weeks journey of Kufa investigating narrate, you know, checking this narrator that narrator that reporter, checking everything has he heard from him, maybe it takes him six months to do research before including one Hadith in his book. That's why it takes 16 years, you must say why this takes 16 years. He spent his day and night and he was very, he went to one more Hadith, someone said he's got a hadith, which is very unique. Go to him, take that hadith, hear it from him and put it in your book, he traveled to another city. I can't remember where another city Kufa saw somewhere, when he went to that Muhaddith that this was outside, you know, he had his
animal, horse or donkey, one of the animals, and he was calling the animal. And they were saying, Come here, come here, come here, like make noise. Come, you know, just pretending that he's got some grass or you call it Hay hay or to you know, for the animal.
Come here. And he didn't have anything. He was just trying to get the animal. Remember how he looked at him? And he said, Have you got the hay in your hands? This is his made a two week journey to just go to take money from? He said, No, no, no, I'm just that animal doesn't come to me. He said, How can I take a hadith? Ammonia caribou Alba is the one who lies to animals. How can I take money from him and Salam Alikum optimasi Later, he didn't take a Hadith from it. This is how particular he was. This is how particular was He was meticulous, he would go to the depth every possible means that he had of investigating, he investigated until he didn't get to the depth. He did not include the
Hadith in his book, and had very strict, strict conditions. And that's why
he did all of that. And the next one and with this finally, what he did was Hala, he asked Allah subhanaw taala he did. This is why you know, a lot of people make a mistake. We have two types of people in this world. Like in Muslims. If raka freak, some people some of us we only rely on ASVAB we have a job interview. We want work we want employment we want any worldly, we take all the worldly means as for asking Allah dua is taharah we don't we don't even think about that. It's all just taking worldly means as far as other people they just rely on is the heart and dreams. Everything I do is the heart that's it I've asked Allah Allah what apart the means is Tom says take
a balanced tie the camel tie the knot tie the camel then rely on Allah we have been you know with istikhara I will just this is a side issue people ask this about it's still hard it's still hard on many people have misunderstood what is Takara is, is the Hara is asking Allah Hey, you know what is the power means? It's not just for marriage, by the way yet Mr. Harris for everything. Mr. Carlos for anything some pious people used to do is to Hara every day of their life. They wake up in the morning after he shall have deduced ha why Oh Allah, I'm asking you today Inshallah, I'm going for my job, I'm going out of the house, etc, etc. I asked you please Baraka in my day, in my work in my
job in my driving in my journey, if anything goes wrong, then protect me from it. And then they don't it doesn't mean that they used to hire and then go back to sleep and say, let me see a dream whether I should go work on it. No, before marriage, this is where it is Tahara you do all whatever's in your means and then at the end, you just have it anyway. Imam Bukhari took all the means of ensuring that the hadith is at the end. He says that Maota to vikita Bill, streaky Terry's Sufi Hadith and Illa to sell to Pablo Eric was a little rock Artane was to hurt Allah Tada. What
a hater who I did not place any Hadith in my book until I did not make a who said
before everybody how many Hadith I told you so here Bukhari 7250 Approximately there's some versions is numberings that means you took 7250 baths also, before every Hadith
I did HOSA I offered to the car before every Hadith to raka knuffel Sala Sala to the Sahara Oh ha Joe sugar or whatever. Nia
For Allah subhanaw taala how many regards to
how many you look at
7002 50 Look, are they? What is it 14 14,530 14,500 And I made the Sahara for every single Hadith.
Before every Hadith thing, Oh Allah I've traveled here I've done this, I've done that I've done every topic research, I put all the effort in for you. Now finally, ask ALLAH that, you know place baraka and blessings. And if, if they if this hadith is not supposed to be here, stop me from putting it in, in this book of mine, and I made sure that it will say this is a moment of just an example. So I'm just going to conclude this was just a small synopsis what he did part so this was the second part quickly first part Allah said, We have revealed the Quran to you we shall protect the Quran, the words of the Quran. Number two, preservation is guaranteed for the Hadith. Do you
remember what I was saying? In the beginning? We have revealed the difficulty we have Allah has promised us they will preserve the Quran I told you about the Bible etc. The Quran word is revealed, preserved and the Sunnah, hadith is also preserved. Number three, and I will end with this and very short briefly on this.
Not just the Quran text is preserved, not just the Hadith text is preserved just five minutes on this. Even the understanding of the Quran and Hadith is preserved. What does that mean even the understanding
even the understanding of the Quran and Sunnah is preserved the interpretation of the Quran and Sunnah look brothers if listen to this carefully is very important. Who heard the Quran and the Hadith directly from the mouth of Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who heard
the Sahaba now someone who's hearing directly with that person understand like if I speak to you directly right now but you are listening to me right now you go back home and tell your friend what I said. Do you understand better will you be understanding better or he will be understanding better you will be you're looking at me you look at my actions I'm doing this and I'm doing that and I'm tone. Sometimes you say someone go there could be there's actually 18 meanings of the Ummah and you tell someone you're a student comes to you're a teacher. He's been Skyping every day. I want to go home I've got a headache. No, no, no. Go back to class. Comes back after 10 minutes. I'm gonna go
headache. No, go back class. He came 10 times. You got a headache because he keeps it. Okay, go.
Is that okay? Go different to you got a very good student who never misses class and he says, share. Today I've got a bit of headache. I want to go home. Okay.
One is Okay, go. Okay, go.
Both. One is yes. One is no who understands that. In the Hadith book. It won't be one written in red ink and one in greening.
They're both in the plucking. It's exactly written the same way. Um, this is just one example. This is a topic on its own. The Sahaba who heard the voice who heard the tone who understood how it was said, what action Allah's Messenger SallAllahu Sallam made, they took that understanding of the Quran, that understanding of the Salah. They passed and transmitted that understanding to their students and then their students and their students and then say students till today and today we have our teachers Masha, Allah ma, that's why look in Islam. We don't have we don't have scholars, creating a monopoly we don't own this is not Christianity in Christianity. What the Pope says
becomes religion. This is not Christianity, in Christianity, even in Shia Islam. What happens is what what the Grand Ayatollah says they are considered to be infallible what they say they like Umbria in Florida, but according to them what they say becomes d. According to us know, the greatest REM chef can make a mistake and everyone can disagree. But the understanding the real understanding of what Quran means what's the real explanation of this hadith? This is only that's it is only valid when it's come through
generation from generation from generation this understanding is has been coming through. Today we find people making all sorts of statements I heard recently somebody was saying that. Why is it in the Quran hijab is not fun.
Hijab is not following the Quran, there are verses because they are ambiguous, hijab is not follow the way does he say in the Quran that you have two women have to wear hijab, this verse But this verse could mean this as well that it's true. It could mean that maybe 2% This verse, no, but this is also you know, in the Quran, Allah says what? Anyway, don't give that example but there's different you can just literally, you know,
what the people who
traveled with them Safarova. This is what they've been any explanation you
You can give because Arabic language you can just completely change everything. Therefore, only that explanation of the Quran and Sunnah will be valid will be acceptable will be correct, which has come from generation from generation from our shoe from the teachers from teachers the folk AHA all the way go into the Sahaba so this is the third part of the preservation of Deen Allah subhanaw taala took it upon himself to preserve this Deen. This includes three parts, preserve the text of the Quran. Number two,
preserve the Sunnah a number three the meaning and understanding of the Quran and Sunnah. Now Allah subhanaw taala grant us to inshallah today I would just like if I can ask my look when I just one minute on Fatah Chris money. I've already said it. We are very honored and privileged today. You see his name here. Shepherd, Islam, Shepherd, Hadith, Mufti Muhammad wa money heavy the hula. Seriously people ask me, sometimes me and others about Him or ask, you know, I normally will. The only thing I can say that this individual is such that we are fortunate, seriously, you will not understand. I don't understand him myself. They say in Yachty full formula, fatherly they will father, the true
virtue of the people of virtue is only understand by those of virtue. That's why you know, in the morning, we had an older MA program here, they were most scholars sitting by him, then there's people here, because scholars understanding him understand him more, they realize his MACOM and his position. This is a unique man, I normally say that we are privileged and fortunate just to be living in the same time in this world that he's living. That's that's the audience honestly. Today, we're going to see him in Shaba. But we are fortunate just to be living, like one of the chefs said that, you know, it seems as though there was a train traveling. And in there, there was no national
retiree Rahimullah. Go he and Malia Sasha Mala and you know, it's Karela, Hassan, Hula, hula, and not enough to say that he had Madani and Kasina note that all of them were there. And they were travelling in a train, and the train left and one guy got left behind which doesn't fit across money. And this I heard this from a great person, he is of that caliber. Seriously, you look at him. I mean, it's difficult to understand, unless you sort of realize and read his works. When I look Ma Ma sha Allah may Allah preserve and protect him his invited him not just this year, but last year and a few years, five, six years and mashallah taka Smalley has a lot of love for him and the
Institute and kunzea has been coming for the past few years. Take this opportunity to benefit from him. And you know, he's tried to spread you know, tell people others to come someone like you when he went to India, in 2011. There was 80,000 people who came to listen to his talks in Melbourne. In Melbourne, people were climbing on lampposts on trees. In Dilbert there was national holiday in Duluth Gilbert.
The whole mother's on the show called added to the last man, they all were given holiday. And everyone like from this greater Charlotte Hadid would come to such as a student in front of them. This is a type of caliber. He is the author of numerous books in English to Arabic, he wrote a book which took him good many 18 years, which is a shout out, you know of Sahih Muslim in Arabic six, you know, six seven volumes, commentary, people think, Oh, this money is not in banking. No, no, no brother, that's just like 10% of his work. You know, it's not just that's what he does many, many things. So may Allah subhanaw taala give us the benefit to listen to him and all the rest of our
great Musharraf one and Officer Rahim shipside Allah as well as others. May Allah grant us don't feel
sorry. I'm gonna have time
