Don't be

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

mad at me or you

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


00:00:11--> 00:00:17

our D which Allah subhanaw taala has given to us find the title of the messenger send a love it he was sending

00:00:18--> 00:01:10

this day, this religion is faith, this knowledge that's come to us, Allah subhanaw taala himself has taken up the responsibility to preserve it to protect it to safeguard it. In the Quran, Allah says in nationalism, the vicar, or intellect will have to do, indeed, we have revealed the vehicle to you. The word the vicar means the message, but it's referring to the Quran. Mainly, we have indeed revealed the vicar to you, or messenger, Allah is addressing Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. Indeed, we have revealed the message to you, what in other Buddha have we learned, and indeed, we shall protect it, preserve it, we are the ones who will protect it. In other words, Allah subhanahu Gaida

00:01:10--> 00:01:59

has taken this responsibility, this beauty upon his own self, to preserve and protect the dean, the teachings of the de, until your will am until the day of judgment until the final hour, Allah has taken this responsibility. And when we look at the word vicar, the message when Allah says We have revealed the book to you, and we will preserve and protect it, this word will recur, as I said, primarily, mainly fundamentally and really refers to the Quran, but it's not restricted to the Quran. This word refers to everything related to the Quran, everything which is connected, which surrounds the Quran. So it refers to the actual wording of the Quran. The actual wording of the

00:01:59--> 00:02:15

Quran, the text of the Quran. So, if we want to break this down, it's in three different parts, we have revealed the vehicle to you and we will preserve it, we will guard it three different parts. Part number one is the actual text, the mutton, the text of the Quran.

00:02:17--> 00:02:27

Allah has revealed that text into the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he's taken the responsibility to preserve it. The Quran the text we know is preserved, protected.

00:02:29--> 00:03:15

And it's preserved by Allah subhanho, Dianna and this is something that before logic says responsibility, there is no doubt and this is why even non Muslims, they admit to this fact that the sacred texts of the Muslims, the Quran is preserved and protected. No letter, no change, no letter, no one no alteration, no change in any way, shape or form. There was some orientalist, they started or they tried to they attempted to cause some sort of confusion or raise some objections or some doubts, but all of them have been answered, the way the Quran has been preserved and protected, not even one letter, the exact words that will reveal on to the heart of the messenger sallallahu alayhi

00:03:15--> 00:03:39

wa sallam, those exact words and that exact text of the book of Allah subhanaw taala until today has been preserved. However, when Allah says we take on the responsibility, how does Allah take on the responsibility? How does Allah think responsibility, Allah used and uses people of this great OMA of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:03:40--> 00:04:10

the individuals of his own ma have been used as a tool as a means to preserve it. So when the Quran was revealed, since the time of the messenger, salallahu, Alaihe, salam, even small children memorize the Quran, they burn the Quran, yet, Quran was preserved, small, small children, people the profile, the Quran, the Quran, the reciting of the Quran, the people who memorize the Quran, they protected preserve that text of the Quran and Kareem

00:04:11--> 00:04:48

the Sahaba of the Allahu Allah preserved it by memory, and then it was passed on to the generation and the next generation and today, the Quran has come to us what we call Moto G and moto what it means something that has been preserved or something that's been transmitted, generation after generation by way of groups. So 1000s of people have you heard the word working toward it means that groups of people are generating from groups in a way that it's impossible for people to sort of make consider it to be a fabrication. Like for example,

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

who hasn't been for

00:04:54--> 00:04:56

November I know how much you haven't been.

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

Do you believe that that there's a

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

place called GABA. Are you sure you haven't seen through the eyes?

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

How sure.

00:05:08--> 00:05:17

You are certain How do you know there could be an international conspiracy against you, every person you meet, they must have all met together somewhere. And when there was no

00:05:18--> 00:05:27

reason, they all sort of, you know, sort of texting each other. Whenever you meet with understanding there's a place called karma, just showing some pitches, just making really isn't possible.

00:05:28--> 00:05:33

There's too many people who've never met one another,

00:05:34--> 00:06:01

saying the same thing. This is what you call them automatic. So Quran has been revealed by groups, from groups from groups in such a way that it's impossible for anyone to even consider that fabricating it. So Allah used the people of this ummah, to preserve the text, the text of the Quran, this is the part one of the preservation of makeup, we have revealed the vehicle to you, we will preserve it. Part number two

00:06:03--> 00:06:04

of the vehicle

00:06:05--> 00:06:13

is the meanings of the Quran. Because the Quran does not only refer to the text of the Quran, so the meanings and what is the meanings of the Quran,

00:06:15--> 00:06:56

Hadith of the messengers of Allah who already will send them the last pilot Allah says to the messenger, salallahu alayhi salam, well, Enza, now ulica regularly to begin arenas. Indeed, we have revealed this vehicle to say a word or unzila in a car because we have revealed the message to you all messenger lead to begin and in so that you explain by your words by your actions, by your tacit approvals by your own feral and your Korean, this is the definition of the Hadith. So when Allah says We have revealed the vicar to protect, protect and preserve it, it's also the guarantees also for part two, the text of the Quran was preserved by the Quran, the profile the memorizers of the

00:06:56--> 00:07:36

Quran, those who recited the Quran, those who preserved the text, and part two of rigor which is the meaning which is in the form of the Hadith, the tradition is the same as the narration of the messiness Oh, are you send them, they were preserved and protected as well. So the guarantee is also on the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And this is why Allah says in another place, in Surah, Tunisia, 1 million Tebow and you'd have in who in what you you have, this messenger does not speak on his own behalf, which is a revelation that is revealed unto Him. So it is all from Allah. And when Allah when he says that hadith, that hadith is also protected. And this is why we

00:07:36--> 00:07:47

have today and this preservation of the Hadith. Again, Allah used individuals, part one, Allah used individuals who are known as mu, the profile pod,

00:07:49--> 00:07:50

who the individuals are used

00:07:51--> 00:08:24

to the scholars of Hadith. Now the scholars of Hadith are those who preserve the text, the text of the Hadith, and this is why since the time of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, till today, this hadith has been transmitted through generation after generation after generation, through through individuals who have preserved narrated, they've protected every letter word of the Hadith. And this is why this whole science came to existence. There was a science that's known as if you look at the other fates.

00:08:26--> 00:08:29

If you look at, for example, the other two main

00:08:30--> 00:08:34

so called divine Heavenly Religions, the critical Christian Christianity and Judaism,

00:08:36--> 00:08:45

even the Father was off those fates. They admit that they have divinely revealed books.

00:08:46--> 00:09:18

In his father, we have Quran which is the divine book, and we have the Hadith, which is the meaning of the Quran. But with Christianity and Judaism, even the divine book, there is no guarantee there is no change, no unbroken chain will be called Senate. Going back to so you do not receive Jesus peace be upon him. Also you do not Musa Moses peacefully. If you look at Judaism, what's the book the route?

00:09:19--> 00:09:24

If you look at the Torah, is there a chain there is a change initiative.

00:09:26--> 00:09:41

But there was centuries that passed. Some say these are some Jewish writers and historians writing 1500 years that there was no credible addition of the toll road available in the world.

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

And then there was somebody who used to clean by to mock this miserable oxide metal knock this who used to work and who used to be a cleaner of chemistry. He claimed that his following some very copy of the dowel rod and that became the basis that

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

chain goes back to this person 1500 years after Musa Moses PC upon him, and this is the chain going back to the dollar.

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

Some say it goes to shemaroo

00:10:12--> 00:10:18

generations, that there's only chain going all the way back to the US and our Musa.

00:10:19--> 00:10:28

We look at the NG to the Bible today we have, if you look at the Bible, there's actually VO for Bibles or versions of the Bible's

00:10:30--> 00:10:35

book of Matthew's Book of Luke and two copies for these Bibles.

00:10:36--> 00:11:20

They're not actually, even the Christians don't claim that these are revealed books on Raisa peace be upon him no, what did they say? What are these versions of the Bible? These are what the Christians claim and they say themselves, but these all books review a written by the Hawaii, the, the, like the Sahaba, the followers who the the people, you know, the people around Cebu resurfaced upon him, and they received in harm inspiration from God. And they wrote an author these four Bibles, okay? And what are these four copies of the Bible? These are biographies of Xavier, Isa piecemeal,

00:11:22--> 00:11:34

in which even his teachings are covered. So it's like a biography of Jesus, in which there's a there's a section of other teachings of Jesus of Jesus to produce and Jesus taught this.

00:11:35--> 00:11:37

But there was a time

00:11:38--> 00:11:50

when, after the service were part here for centuries, lots of people wrote Bibles, there was approximately 12, to 15 copies of the Bible available.

00:11:51--> 00:12:08

So many different copies, and all of them contradicting each other in the text, major contradictions. So, a long time ago, and this is written by historians, and there's a Christian historian who's actually wrote this himself, he's a Christian. And he writes, and he says that

00:12:10--> 00:12:13

there were so many versions. So

00:12:14--> 00:12:22

about many 100 years ago, after a Sufism upon him, the major scholars, Christian scholars, they said, something needs to be done about this.

00:12:23--> 00:12:24

It's too much contradiction.

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

What do we do?

00:12:27--> 00:12:37

So they had a massive international meeting of all the great scholars of Christianity in a place called Nice.

00:12:38--> 00:12:40

Which is in France, right now it was in Italy.

00:12:41--> 00:12:43

That time, they all gathered,

00:12:46--> 00:13:12

holy, they discussed from all the 1215 different copies of the Bible, which is the most authentic version. Remember, these, this is not even talking about which was revealed, which, which is the most authentic version, which is written by one of the father was off season Arisa peace be upon him. All day, they discussed the debated and talked about it, still, they could not come to a sort of agreement.

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

Voices were raised, people arguing and debating.

00:13:17--> 00:13:22

So towards the end of the day, one of them said that, look, there's no, there's no way we're going to sort of

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


00:13:26--> 00:13:32

So let's do this. Why should we not all ask Allah himself as God himself

00:13:33--> 00:13:37

as God, to tell us and directors

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


00:13:41--> 00:13:49

to discovering the most authentic version of the Bible, out of the 1215 copies that we have available in the world?

00:13:51--> 00:13:52

They said, Okay, that sounds good.

00:13:53--> 00:14:02

So how should we do that? How should we ask God? So one of them, he suggested this idea. So what we do is, we

00:14:03--> 00:14:12

place all the Bibles on a on a table, one on top of the other, all of them in a room, close the door, lock the door.

00:14:14--> 00:14:41

And then all night long, all the Christian you know, priests, everyone goes back to their own places and all night long bed and cry to God in sujood, frustration, and make this dua to Allah in the morning, by the morning, whichever one is the non authentic version, whichever Bible is not authentic, let it fall down, let it fall down. Whichever Bible is not authentic, let it fall down. Whichever one remains on the table, that's going to be authentic.

00:14:42--> 00:15:00

Awesome, that sounds good. Let's just do that. So there were templates to all the copies of the Bible, on the desk. Everybody went to the houses to their rooms at night, and they're all crying and making etcetera, etcetera. In the morning, they came. They locked the door. In the morning they

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

came and they found four, but the rest of the Bibles are folded on the floor. And there was 1234 copies on the desk.

00:15:07--> 00:15:12

The one day they said here, these are the authentic ones. And these are the authentic ones right now.

00:15:14--> 00:15:35

The historian, the Christian historian who actually has written this, he says that everybody said, Okay, these are the four authentic ones. But nobody realized that the one who suggested this idea, he's the one who locked the door, and he is the one who kept the keys of the normal in his pocket, and he's the one who took the keys home at night.

00:15:37--> 00:15:50

Don't know what he did when the middle of the night when everybody went to sleep, while everybody went to pray in their own homes. The whole basis of Christianity is on this particular incident of the whole Bible.

00:15:52--> 00:16:08

With the Quran, in Islam, this is the horseshoe theory. This is why this policy Elise nanoco, Sofia, to her the OMA is chain of transmission, unbroken chain. This is the hustle sia This is a speciality business specific feature of the owner of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:16:09--> 00:16:10


00:16:11--> 00:16:18

it is impossible to find its equivalent in any faith or any group or anywhere.

00:16:20--> 00:16:38

That every forget, let alone the divine the real book the Quran, that's without doubt with a variety of groups of people, ranging from groups of people from groups of people, and there's the text of the Quran, that even the meanings of the Quran which is the Hadith of the messenger, sallallahu alayhi, WA,

00:16:39--> 00:16:46

is also preserved and protected. To to the point that the scholars they

00:16:48--> 00:16:51

introduced a

00:16:52--> 00:17:35

science, you may have come across this great science, the science known as a small region, size of critically analyzing the reporters of Hadith, when a hadith is narrated from the messenger SallAllahu and he was saying that it comes through a chain, the author was writing a book 300 years. Remember when the books are written like Sahil Bukhari was written, but 300 years after the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam all these books are like 300 years. So from that time to the messengers of Allah, why do you send them those 300 years, you have a chain? So Imam Bukhari is writing the Hadith. He says, I heard this hadith exactly with these words from my chef, my teacher,

00:17:35--> 00:18:19

who had done a full uncontradicted of Hula, hula, hula, he integrates from his chair, he interrupts from his shape generates from his shape from his shape from Michigan, all the way to the very, the sahabi, the companion who heard from the Messenger of Allah people listen to the upon him that he said this, that another change, if you want to know if I want to know if we want to know, pick up any book of Hadith. And you want to know, put your finger on any name on that chain. This person was, there are hundreds of books written on the topic of science of critical analysis, the report of how to you could find the minut details of every reporter.

00:18:20--> 00:18:29

Every reporter and this is unparalleled. No other faith community or organization, or any community can

00:18:30--> 00:18:56

claim to have a science with my new details. You pick up a book of Hadith, you say this is the name of yet you have been other there's an arranger, you take his name, who is he? When was he born? When did he pass away? And who are these teachers? Who are his students? Where did he live? How reliable was he? How pious was he? How much sooner? Did he follow? How much God consciousness and did he have in his life? Is he really reliable? Was it true? Will you ever live his life?

00:18:57--> 00:19:10

How was his memory? Did he forget things? They would never take a hadith until they wouldn't be? Absolutely, they will be absolutely sure and positive about the credibility of this narrator of Hadith.

00:19:12--> 00:19:21

They would go and investigate in detail. There's one great you know, known as Ben Marine, one of the great scholars in the science of preserving Hadith.

00:19:22--> 00:20:00

He says that when we used to go on he lived his teacher of Nan Bihari, when he was one of the main scholars in the science. He says we used to actually go to the village or the city or the town. If someone in the chain from New Castle, for example. They would come to New Castle, they would investigate they would ask people they would spend their time and effort who was his guy? How was he when he was young? Where was he born? How did you grow up? Who are his parents? Because you don't want you don't know anybody who could just come and just for God, they would go deep into sort of analyzing his his dimension he says in one of the books and when you

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

We used to go to the cities and towns to investigate a particular person because this is about the matter of faith. We need everything to be authentic. People used to the public is to ask this and why are you asking so much about this particular person? Is it that you've a proposal has come with your daughter from him or something the way you investigated? The way you investigates lonely people investigate what they're worried about. The daughter has been given the marriage to this person.

00:20:27--> 00:20:37

He says, we used to say, you know, the matter is much more serious than that. We get our daughter to the wrong man, someone comes investigating Newcastle or about his brother from Leicester.

00:20:38--> 00:20:48

Matter is much more serious than that. And just to find the son in law, in less in Newcastle, this is about de they never used to kill you when he was father or son or brother.

00:20:50--> 00:21:04

Again, I think I need to add, somebody asked him about his father, his father was one of the meridians of Hadith. What's the position of your father? How is your father in generating? He said, Son, or your brother, don't ask me or somebody else.

00:21:05--> 00:21:08

So the person is not only only to ask you want your opinion?

00:21:09--> 00:21:11

He said, If you want to really ask me

00:21:12--> 00:21:17

in the hoody, no, sorry. Harder the being in the older Eve.

00:21:18--> 00:21:42

This is a matter of D. I can't conceal or hide anything. When it comes to her need, my father is weak is not a reliable narrator. The mama widowed, a great scholar of honey, somebody asked him about his son has written books. What about your son status in Hadith? How reliable is no no, my son is no credible. He's not going to just say oh, this is my son. Okay, no, no.

00:21:43--> 00:21:52

We we forget ourselves. Now this is a Pakistani or this is the majority of this open goal you recite the Quran says whenever Allah unfussy como invalidate you want to Praveen

00:21:53--> 00:22:02

again, or you will believe we just even if it's against your own selves or your children or your parents, or whatever unphysical or invalidated when

00:22:04--> 00:22:17

they were very just because the mattered more than ethnicity or caste or background and knew from they didn't care if it was their own family members. So this is how the scholars of Hadith dedicated

00:22:18--> 00:22:41

so this was a second part which is the meanings of the Quran. meanings of the Quran in terms of the actual text of the heading allows internationalism data. In Data Houlahan alone, we have revealed this baker to the message, we will preserve it we will protect it we will guide it we will use human beings and individuals of the owner of the Messenger of some Allah

00:22:42--> 00:22:57

to preserve this vicar use the Pope, the shofar, the hurrahs, the memorize of the Quran to preserve the text of the Quran, use them hide the Loon, the scholars of Hadith to preserve and protect the text of the Hadith. And that's part three as well.

00:22:59--> 00:22:59

Was Part Three

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

vehicle I said Part one was was power.

00:23:05--> 00:23:10

Are you with me? The text of the Quran? They can part two, what's that?

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

The meaning which is the Hadith.

00:23:15--> 00:23:17

And then there's part three as well.

00:23:19--> 00:23:31

Pot three, the meanings, which have been axed not the meanings in terms of the text of the Hadith, but what we call the understanding of the Quran and Sunnah.

00:23:33--> 00:23:47

The understanding of the Quran and Sunnah, so the text of the Quran is preserved. Attacks on the Hadith Allah use them affect the tune the scholars of Hadith. And then there's part three, use Allah used what we call the individuals known as the fuqaha.

00:23:49--> 00:23:55

The jurists of this ummah, those are the ones who dedicated their life

00:23:56--> 00:24:39

time, the whole existence, to understanding and extracting and deriving laws, deducing laws from the Quran and from the Hadith, and passing that understanding of the Quran and Sunnah to the next generation, conveying it to the next generation. This is also part of the preservation. This is why the transmission of the deen in it all three forms through an unbroken chain, and this chain started from the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu. In the time of the rest of us on a loved one who sent him there were three type Sahaba had many different jobs.

00:24:40--> 00:24:54

The Winslow grocery man, they had three different jobs, not just three they had many jobs within the companions. So how about the above I know there was some companions of the messengers and Allahu Allah who sent him who Janek who are

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

experts in one field, there was some who in the memory

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

I think of the text of the Quran. There was some who are leaders in the battlefield that hardly nobody will do. That was their job. Majority actually did the job of preserving the text of the head. Above Hooray Have you heard of so you don't have to move around with your loved one. He is a companion, a Sahabi, who relates the most Hadith from the messengers of Allah who and he will send him 5874

00:25:30--> 00:25:40

And not far behind him is a female companion because this was not only built by men, it's done by men and women. That were great scholars of Hadith women.

00:25:41--> 00:26:16

When we say it wasn't just men, we sometimes forget everything. Everything was just a moment. So you the Aisha Radi Allahu on how we Allah please read her. She is the second most prolific Narrator numerous narrations. And even in history we find those a time when the one of the greatest scholars of Hadith was known by she was known as an editor a che ha and Musa NIDA she had the greatest chain can even remember was era we along right now. I don't exactly remember which century she lived. She lived over 100 years since she passed away around 101.

00:26:17--> 00:26:30

When she was in her 80s and 90s. She was the greatest living scholar at that time. And people from all around the world men and women would travel just to see Hadith and learn from a great scholar of honey.

00:26:32--> 00:26:45

people, men and women would come to her and Tiki jersey. Great great scholars of Hadith are traveling from it but the dollar from Basra and from Kufa to come to this country. My mother was here and take the jasmine and she teaches Hadith and we take the Jasmine.

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

So women can even teach men

00:26:49--> 00:26:50


00:26:51--> 00:27:07

women can teach men as well. Not a problem. That's even today you find in Morocco. There's actually two sisters who are in the 80s great scholars of Hadith some of the highest Assadi they have many scholars from the Arab world actually go I read recently somebody who actually went

00:27:09--> 00:27:47

to Morocco. She comes from the boat sisters come from a very scholarly background, the Caetani family which is known in the Moroccan lands to be a very very famous family of scholars and Paddy. There was one person who shot in front of the Jaffa look attorney Rahim Allah He passed away on Sunday. His son was at McKeon, Qatari he migrated to Damascus in Syria, and then his son, his grandsons are still living one of them passed away a couple of years ago and met the other grandson, this was a very famous scholar the Hadith. So there are two, you know, really aged sisters. So anyway, these are scholars within the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu

00:27:49--> 00:28:01

we had different jobs, you had some the majority were the ones who are preserving the text of the Hadith. Likewise, you had some scholars some Sahaba who are dedicated towards

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

to not preserving the text

00:28:06--> 00:28:11

or you will be not preserving the text but to preserve and dedicate the time to

00:28:12--> 00:28:21

you know what feta means Vic means to understand the Quran and Sunnah to extract laws of the Quran and Sunnah. So people like Abu likeliness, Ruth,

00:28:22--> 00:28:58

Abdullah, Abbas, Radi Allahu Akbar, these were great companions, who dedicated their lives to understanding to derive to extract the dose from the Quran. So different jobs, the same thing happened this was so those who are memorizing the text of the Quran, they passed on that job to the next generation, those who are preserving Hadith, the words of the Hadith, they passed on to the next generation, those who are for kaha the understanding of, you know, the meanings and they will extract knows how they understood the Hadith and the Quran. They pass that on to the next generation within the Dow Theory. And then the great Romans came into existence, the boy schools of war came

00:28:58--> 00:29:34

into into existence. This is a long history, the evolution of it. We need like hours and hours to sort of discuss all these things. But we had the four Imams that came to existence. Each one is a school that goes to one of the companions. It's that understanding of the Quran and Sunnah which the Sahaba took from the messengers of Allah Hanuman send them and then they pass them on to the web and many of these amounts of what the followers have the time between Abu Hanifa or the ALLAH and he was very mimetic was a tabula rasa very a student of photography, who was a student of a companion, remember shelf he was a student of the students verbal Hanifa students, Imam Shafi. So, this is the

00:29:34--> 00:29:50

understanding the third partner for kaha and these people, when when we say they took this part three, which is understanding, extracting deriving wherever the German and extracting the news from, from what

00:29:51--> 00:29:59

from the Quran and Sunnah. So in order for them to sort of derive what do they need, they need the Quran

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

So do they need to hide if they weren't deriving it from the Bible read from the Torah or from some other book. This is why some people say well use the fuqaha they don't know how you can you can't be a puppy unless you know the Hadith because you have to have the Hadith in front of you to extract the news. That's why there are two types of jobs. The mohideen scholars have any their job was to hear the Hadith from the messenger SallAllahu sallam, if it's a hobby, or hear it from the person before and pass it on. That's it. That's the job of the Mojave. Nothing more than that, receive has conveyed receive convict, exact exactly these other words I look for the messenger sort of operating

00:30:40--> 00:30:44

system or from this hobby. Here it is a pathology you pass on to the

00:30:46--> 00:30:51

the Nokia the polka when they received the database to pass it on.

00:30:52--> 00:31:09

Please do take all the Hadith, keep them by them. And then day and night spend time understanding extracting laws from it. This is why the resolution Allah when he was circumcision that hadith both jobs are highly great jobs.

00:31:10--> 00:31:46

Both jobs are great job is a Hadith in Bukhari and elsewhere are the messengers of Allah when he was said that he said, No God Allah Who Imran semi I'm apology for her favor who adore her Tama Samia, for Oba who been loving our answer maybe, may Allah illuminate the face of the person who hears my Hadith and then preserves it protects it, God's it memorizes it conveys it to someone else. And then the messengers of Allah Himself, He says, this is this is the sort of reward or the virtue or the status or the right. And this is

00:31:48--> 00:32:31

the appreciation of the job of the Muhammad, Allah illuminate Allah give moon to the mind to the face to the Allah give light, no god Allah, Allah illuminates that person who does this job of hearing the Hadith, and then preserving it and conveying it. And then the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, However, sometimes the one conveying it might convey to someone Oh on Sunday, who has a better understanding than the one who is actually conveying, if I convey something to you, you may understand better than what I have conveyed I just because it was just conveyed my job because I heard this, here's the text. So the message is usually seen as sometimes the one which is

00:32:31--> 00:33:03

conveyed to may have a better understanding than the one who is conveying doesn't mean the one the conveyor has a greater understanding. So that was a job and this is why the second job, which was to understand this is called filter. This is called the football and the messengers are the lower incidences in technical Buhari maturity level, the ability for people to deal with whomever Allah intends good. Allah gives him the deep understanding of religion of faith. So anyway, this is what I felt was to sort of understand why have you sit down extract laws? How did this happen?

00:33:05--> 00:33:10

This happened when these great scholars have

00:33:11--> 00:33:28

thick folk Aha. So you have a division with leaving aside the first part because that's, that's what our discussion, but part two and part three that we'll be doing, they will convey the Hadith for AHA, they were extracting nose from the head.

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

They spent the whole lives dedicated their lives.

00:33:34--> 00:33:50

They dedicated their lives to extract the laws from the Quran and Sunnah. Sometimes one issue that would spend months, days when we have like, you know, the full school schools of thought, for example, people ask, well, what are these four schools of thought?

00:33:51--> 00:34:39

This is not this is why we say schools of Sunni Islamic No, these are not individuals. When someone follows For example, the marriage is good he is not following Imam Malik per se one person. He is following a tradition, a school consisting of 1000s of scholars over hundreds of years. Every issue the Hanafi school when they used to extract no there will be a committee the motto honey formula who had 40 students major great Imams, great scholars, they would sit down deliberate, discuss, understand that would bring the text of the Quran and Sunnah brought Bible and Torah and zabuton Jeep, it is the Quran and Sunnah. They will bring that Quran and Sunnah in front of them, and then

00:34:39--> 00:34:54

they will spend day and night to extract laws and people can have differences in this extraction is possible because it's not clear. It's not black and white. And this is why they would extract Lowe's small for reasons

00:34:56--> 00:34:57

you could have differences.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

There are many reasons why we can help

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

differences between these schools have

00:35:02--> 00:35:05

either one letter or one word the way you pronounce it.

00:35:07--> 00:35:18

Like I've said many times before, we have a command in the Arabic language. Like in every language you have any when you command someone, it's conceivable honor. If I do this

00:35:19--> 00:35:23

standard up, sit down, eat, walk.

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

Now, this command,

00:35:28--> 00:35:35

the wording of command in the Arabic language has 18 different connotations to it.

00:35:36--> 00:35:45

Now you might have a text in the command that's commanding something, you might have a text in the Hadith that's commanding some, which one of the 18 Do we take?

00:35:48--> 00:35:51

If someone tells commands or something we can tell by the tool.

00:35:52--> 00:35:56

If there's a student who goes to his teacher is a very good student,

00:35:57--> 00:36:02

a very hardworking student. He comes to class every day.

00:36:03--> 00:36:06

And he never misses. But one day he went to the teachers

00:36:09--> 00:36:13

kind of go home today. Teacher says, Okay, go home. Okay.

00:36:16--> 00:36:33

What is your problem? There's another student who's coming every other day. He's a bad student. And he came to the teacher 10 times before today as well. Come on, go I'm gonna go and the teacher knows that this guy is just trying to find some excuse.

00:36:35--> 00:36:38

11 the time he came was too tight.

00:36:42--> 00:36:49

You know the difference between the two? What's the difference? First one is yes. Second, we'll know. Now when the hadith is written,

00:36:51--> 00:37:02

are we hearing the words of the messengers of love and you're setting the tone with our own ears? No. The Quran being revealed, can we hear it? No. The Quran says you need

00:37:03--> 00:37:12

to add someone to who you believe when you take a credit transaction, write it down. The Quran says oh people Salah established prayer.

00:37:13--> 00:37:19

The Quran also says with a halal tool for studying when you come out of a round 100

00:37:21--> 00:37:28

Allah says, But Addleshaw guna now, in the nights of Ramadan,

00:37:30--> 00:37:35

you may have intimate relationship with your spouse. I've translated differently but it's Amma

00:37:36--> 00:37:44

did so what I'm saying the command in the Quran is a vertical bar. Let me give you two examples. One example of a command the Quran says offer prayer.

00:37:46--> 00:38:01

What kind of command is that? Everyone knows. What is its obligation? We all know we have to pray. But the same wording has been used for Allah say in Ramadan night. have intimate relationship with your wife with your husband?

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

Is it fun?

00:38:05--> 00:38:26

You shouldn't hear so I won't be too explicit. Is it fun for a man and a woman husband wife every night of Ramadan to have intimate sexual relationships. Have you heard any scholar giving that photo? is in the Quran? Allah says what boss you would not see a little animal have sexual intercourse in the night of Ramadan.

00:38:27--> 00:38:35

There's no difference the wording of offer prayer, it's a command. The seehotel ama the same wording in the Quran

00:38:37--> 00:38:47

have intimate relationships. But who wouldn't? And not just that after says what doesn't work or don't love them? Don't use contraception as a word though. See children

00:38:48--> 00:38:50

come in every night.

00:38:51--> 00:38:54

Every night of Ramadan. You have to make babies

00:38:57--> 00:39:00

he has already had football teams when substitutes as well.

00:39:04--> 00:39:05

Has anyone said that?

00:39:07--> 00:39:15

What's the meaning of the Quran? Means Have a nice evening. Before it was prohibitive. Now you may if you want to.

00:39:16--> 00:39:36

Even though the wording is saying now you may that's why the Quran says where the halal tool for stod when you are haram you can't hunt. When you come out of a haram. You may hunt but it's actually saying hunt but not necessarily to go and hunt. So this Allah Allah also says okay, let me give you another example,

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

from inshallah for human are mentioned

00:39:40--> 00:39:47

before is AMA, whoever wants coming to cover sexually commanded from Allah to commit to for beer coffee.

00:39:48--> 00:39:50

But this is like saying, Go, go.

00:39:52--> 00:39:53

Go, go become Catholic.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

That's the title cometh eight even though in our daily language. There's different columns

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


00:40:01--> 00:40:48

So the focus of the various schools, they looked at all the analysis, this is just one example this topic is like 1000s of pages written on this. One example is giving you one random example of how they would sit down with all the text to sort of come to a conclusion that this command which kind of command is, is it actually foreign? Is it working? Is it sort of is the recommendation? Is it actually saying don't do it? Is it actually like saying, you know, yeah, go ahead and do it. Find out meaning no, don't go like, Alright, go home, we'll see. Is it that kind of command? Likewise, a hadith, Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 1000s, hundreds of 1000s of Hadith of

00:40:48--> 00:40:49

the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:40:51--> 00:40:53

There are some apparently contradictory,

00:40:54--> 00:41:04

apparently contradictory Hadith. How do you reconcile the two? What have you been saying this one Hadith is saying that it's not just about brotherhood. It's much more than that.

00:41:05--> 00:41:08

Which Hadley is capable to be acted upon?

00:41:10--> 00:41:18

Sometimes one word one lesson known as a Khalifa lesson is Allah says the Carthaginian is the cartoon meaning.

00:41:19--> 00:41:20

What does he say?

00:41:21--> 00:41:27

The cartoon genuinely the cartoon meaning if you read that the cartoon Jimmy the cartoon me.

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

And if you read it, you're going to Jimmy Carr, tell me about Shannon Adama. It gives you two opposite meanings. I remember in the olden times there was not even a written campaign to run you know, this Fatah because of them. Just saying the car to me and tell you to complete opposite knows of Islam.

00:41:54--> 00:42:37

The godly Geneva to me he means that if you were to slaughter an animal who would feel whenever you slaughter a cow, and you find a dead animal in the stomach, is that that animal halal or not? That's the question. If you say that if you read the gospel genuine letter to me, that means that the dead offspring animal is also Halal with the mother no problem, your social account on in the stomach, who was a pregnant cow, they found a dead animal that's also halal. And if you say the girl Giannini the girl tell me that means that none of that debt and it was haram because you did not find it alive and you're not able to structure. Now 50% of the scholars have died because to me 50 others 2%

00:42:38--> 00:42:47

told me not because they felt like it because they use the Arabic language, the grammar, the understanding the change the look time, they must have spent like

00:42:49--> 00:42:51

three months just to come to this conclusion.

00:42:52--> 00:43:07

Every school of thought has so much things that they put into coming and arriving at conclusions. The Quran says this Lula Anand Mahindra will put that in fact, I didn't know regarding menstruation

00:43:09--> 00:43:15

Well, mocha la casa Carabas forbidden food scene in LA sadaqa guru. When a woman is divorced, we know that

00:43:16--> 00:44:03

the waiting period, Quran says a woman who has been divorced, she has to spend three Ogu as the waiting period before she can marry someone else. The word used in the Quran is guru. What does that mean? If you look pick up hands on people like to just pick up dictionaries. dictionary will tell you it means two things which one both give us a better move. wherever you're going. The more authentic, more authentic both two meanings. One meaning is that it refers to menstrual period. So a woman has been divorced, she has weighed for three menstrual periods. And another meaning is completely opposite. There's so many words in the Arabic language that they have two meanings,

00:44:03--> 00:44:04

opposite meanings.

00:44:05--> 00:44:10

That's the nature of the Arabic language. Not just two different meanings but two opposite meanings.

00:44:13--> 00:44:15

The other mean what's the opposite of menstrual period?

00:44:17--> 00:44:18

What's the opposite of menstruation?

00:44:20--> 00:44:32

Yeah, the period of no no no menstruation. You have a woman's on her purity. She comes to the mosque. That's the opposite. Oh also means that now oh Allah you sent guru. Which one? Do you mean?

00:44:34--> 00:44:36

Allah has not told us how do you use antennas?

00:44:38--> 00:45:00

Now you have the different schools having both opinions. One of them one of the school says its menstrual periods. Why evidence 1-234-567-8910 Looking at the wording looking at our language looking at the word tree looking at guru looking at this looking at like hundreds of evidences and then they come to a conclusion. It means the menstrual periods. So

00:45:00--> 00:45:16

All right Deb is after divorce she has to pass three months appears the other school of thought says no like the shelter is good. It means the period of verification Why don't you just want to leave oh five our 10 evidences which was correct. Allah knows best do we know who which was? We don't know when we'll find out inshallah and Gemma

00:45:17--> 00:45:26

don't find right now go Jana go to shut up to have some coffee shop and find out and sit with the messiness of Allah and instead of relaxing so you know what? What was the real answer?

00:45:28--> 00:45:33

The scholars have said this that, according to Allah, there's only one truth.

00:45:34--> 00:45:36

According to Allah, there's only one truth.

00:45:38--> 00:45:48

Allah will accept both because Allah has not made it clear. There's not clutter here. This is why we have some things in Islam which are clear which are categorical, known as

00:45:49--> 00:45:50

they are categorical.

00:45:52--> 00:46:05

Some things in Islam, I'm going to integrate this. Some things in Islam are categorical. There are no two, no two opinions, no differences of opinion. Some people think that is the two things on majority of Islam. There's no difference of opinion.

00:46:07--> 00:46:15

And you might say, why does it seem like everything's difference of opinion. The reason is because we make no fuss about the differences of opinion issues.

00:46:16--> 00:46:28

Majority of Islam there's no difference of opinion. But we don't like to talk about them. Why? Because they're too difficult to talk about that too boring. For some people. There's no fun in Islam until you don't sensationalize. What

00:46:29--> 00:47:04

is your should be yourself be this. Islam is too boring. To be a good practicing Islam have a connection with Allah have spirituality, you work on our own cells, you know, that's too boring. We want that. Either. We're not practicing using Islam, or we want to talk about things that just divide us and our view and you know, fine, otherwise it's too boring. So because we've put a lot of focus on things that divide us. It looks like everything's different. So opinion, that's majority wisdom. Do we have talks on like, there's a whole you can do a whole day seminar on the prohibition of backbiting one of the greatest sins in Islam

00:47:05--> 00:47:43

leading up to categorical lows of the Quran and Sunnah there's no difference of opinion you will never have this school or suddenly school or Sufi school or the sharper your the Hanafi or the Maliki saying, okay, everybody's had on or something No, no even haram, jealousy, Hidalgo. magenic Hatred is haram. No, jealousy is Hello, everyone knows the crux the real part of Islam, especially to do with our dealings. So there are loads of the Quran and Sunnah which are category condensed. There are no differences of opinion Allah has laid them in black and white and categorical terms. And in those issues, there is no Mattox. There is no following you don't really follow another you

00:47:43--> 00:47:46

don't need to follow you know, someone says

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

is Xena Ha is not yes.

00:47:50--> 00:47:52

Why? Because I follow the head of the school.

00:47:53--> 00:48:00

You don't need to follow any one of his good brother or sister. It's in the Quran. It's in the Quran.

00:48:01--> 00:48:05

You don't follow any school where it's categorical.

00:48:06--> 00:48:13

Stealing is haram why? What's your evidence? Because then we pick up some 100 pages of a book stealing is that's actually wrong to do that.

00:48:15--> 00:48:21

You pick up the Quran and show the evidence on the Quran become Sahil providing clear evidence that stealing is haram.

00:48:22--> 00:48:32

But then there are certain laws of the Quran and Sunnah which are not categorical, which are not what we call poetry, which are learning which are not categorical.

00:48:34--> 00:48:35

And even those

00:48:36--> 00:48:53

because they are not categorical, what do we need? What do we need to do? We need to follow the scholarship of the people above us before us who took their time spent their life effort and time in coming to a conclusion and study.

00:48:54--> 00:48:55

So for example,

00:48:57--> 00:48:57


00:48:59--> 00:49:46

salah to raise your finger like this and should we put your hands here or should we go here is a secondary issues as major as a reverse dealing, jealousy, hatred, enmity, making mockery out of people, haram transactions and riba interests, usually a normal consumptions of people's wealth, not paying debts on time. Those are the main parts of Islam. They're categorical there's no manhood, there's no W there's no height of humanity shall be humbling. But yeah, whether your hands here or here, this hadith that say here, the scholars are spending time on the days and nights on the years and it's titled delight, coming to conclusions. We because we were far away over 1400 years. We

00:49:46--> 00:49:59

follow that system, we stick to one school, we don't have the understanding. Because in these non categorical rules, knows of and sort of you only have two options. Either we follow the scholarship the understanding the F

00:50:00--> 00:50:32

First of 1000s of scholars over 1400 years before us, or we say okay, you know what, I'm a great scholar myself. You know what I know everything and I just come to my own country there's only two options for safety the first that we just leave it to the whole world is already done. Rather than me being a scholar and extracting the news myself, this is a quote following a Muhammad is a quote from it. So anyway, to summarize, Allah has preserved and protected this Deen in three ways. Number one, preserving

00:50:33--> 00:50:34

the text of the Quran

00:50:35--> 00:50:36

by way of who

00:50:38--> 00:50:43

her father the Quran, number two, preserved the meeting which is the Hadith by way of

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


00:50:47--> 00:51:22

And number three, the laws the understanding that came from the prodigal son now that's also been preserved protected, but in there there's a difference which is nothing could have slight differences of opinion in that in the Quran. There's no difference like someone's saying these are handled in dialogue anatomy, and someone say no 100 I have been somehow we know in the Quran, there's no differences. The texts of the Hadith, there's no differences, but in the understanding with its different forms, all of them is the right you can't say what is right what is wrong in those different forms within the third pipe. Allah has preserved and protected this Deen so this is

00:51:22--> 00:51:23

basically what

00:51:26--> 00:51:27

this is.

00:51:29--> 00:51:36

Okay, inshallah I think time I don't know when we have time we have but I just mentioned one one last thing that

00:51:39--> 00:51:50

okay, we'll leave it maybe somebody might have a question or listening in the question right from my company. I hope so. These are some points. That covered a lot I spoke to you meat fish farmers.

00:51:52--> 00:51:54

It looks like I spoke I spoke for 20 minutes.

00:51:56--> 00:51:57

Just just got started leaving finish
