Oh, heavy.

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

Guardians of the pious. Today's episode is number 179 By the grace of Allah, and the chapter that we're about to begin its explanation in chapter number 44. This chapter is known as revealing the scholars and elders and preferring them to others and raising their status, though clearly. You will kebari were added fugly. Whatever the meme allow you to him.

00:01:19 --> 00:01:35

Enamel Now we may Allah have misheard him, introduced to the chapter by a number nine of Surah Zoomer in Bucha. Lord Almighty says Paul Hellyer still we live in a

00:01:37 --> 00:01:37


00:01:41 --> 00:01:42


00:01:43 --> 00:01:45

that go roll

00:01:50 --> 00:02:13

say are those who know equal to those who know not? It is only men of understanding who remember who take heed, who understand and benefit from the verses of Allah, that Surah to Zuma and number nine, a few things before we explain the meaning of the idea. First of all, this is

00:02:14 --> 00:02:26

called is the famine in carry in English, the kind of question which is presented in this area is a negative question.

00:02:27 --> 00:02:31

The negative question the answer is, of course not.

00:02:33 --> 00:02:39

Of course not. When somebody presents a question to you, and its answer is already known,

00:02:41 --> 00:02:43

either in the positive or negative

00:02:44 --> 00:02:45

when I say

00:02:46 --> 00:02:50

didn't you come yesterday? Yes, I did. Of course I did.

00:02:52 --> 00:02:57

Weren't you absent yesterday? As a negative question? Yes, I was.

00:02:59 --> 00:03:31

Called earlier stole ADINA, Allah Munna Hola, Dena, La Jolla, Allah moon, say are the equal those who have knowledge and those who do not have knowledge? The answer is definitely not that is called in Arabic is the famine in Cary. And in English, a negative question and the answer is definitely not. There is similar to many questions presented in this format such as in surah. Sh there are

00:03:33 --> 00:03:44

a lot of mighty says in Surah saved FMLN Meenan cannon can see a claw lair Yes.

00:03:47 --> 00:03:49

Is he the one who's a believer?

00:03:50 --> 00:04:02

Like the one who is rebellious? Should they be treated the same? The answer Allah presented in the following word when he said lay a stone. They're not equal. They're not even

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

at all.

00:04:05 --> 00:04:35

So highly stimulating Allah Munna Allah didn't lay on the moon, in what sense? They are not equal, in what sense? What kind of superiority that the scholars and the knowledgeable ones get, that those who do not have knowledge do not have in addition to what kind of knowledge every useful knowledge gives the the knowledgeable person who acquire this knowledge, superiority and gives him precedence because he knows and others do not. So he's better than them in this field.

00:04:36 --> 00:04:59

What Allah Almighty is referring to in this area is the knowledge about Allah the knowledge about the deen the knowledge which will make the person more righteous, the knowledge that the person practices and acts upon or otherwise. There are people who know by they do not practice they are worse than those who do not know

00:05:01 --> 00:05:16

GameSalad Hey Mary, you may know as fel Allah Almighty referred to that, in the Quran about the people who have been given the torah and they did not they learn it they will scholars and learn

00:05:17 --> 00:05:29

in the Torah, but they did not practice it they did not act upon it. He said method will Edina who Middletown Murata soon Bella Mia Mira que Murcia did he marry? Yeah, they will as far as

00:05:30 --> 00:05:36

is like a donkey carrying loads of books. Will they don't keep benefit from

00:05:37 --> 00:05:55

me many books that is loaded over its back. And how terrible is such example. mid semester will call me Latina Kazem will be a Atilla they have been given the idea they have been given the references the proofs on the science, but they rejected them. What hola hola they'll come up volley me.

00:05:56 --> 00:06:19

So the area is referring to the people who have been given knowledge and they benefited first themselves out of this knowledge. So they practiced it, and they acted upon the useful knowledge they have learned. That's why Allah Almighty insolate Fatar says In sha Allah hammy neighbor the hill

00:06:24 --> 00:06:31

the word Ultra Matte in this area is a subject even though it came nearer than the direct object.

00:06:32 --> 00:06:40

There is Taka de matar. Here, the subject was put after the direct object, unlike in English, but this is for a reason

00:06:42 --> 00:06:57

for an illiquid reason. But how do we know that the subject is has come later than the direct object? Because of the vowel l ruler man Oh, ye love to jail Allah Allah has the vowel Fatah.

00:06:58 --> 00:07:13

So only those who truly fear Allah and keep the duties to him are the true scholars in Nana actually Allah Mineva de la jolla map surah Fatah.

00:07:15 --> 00:07:17

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam

00:07:18 --> 00:07:29

listed many verses, which makes scholars and those who teach people goodness of righteousness superiority. They said in the law Hello, Mala Ekata who

00:07:32 --> 00:08:05

even Allah and His angels and a buyer and even the ants, the birds even the ants in the rules, leg also known as Mr. Lehmann Nestle. Hi. The info invoke Allah to bless the people who teach people righteousness who teaches whom the knowledge will teaches those who do not have knowledge. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said in the sound Hadith, how Eurocom Antara lemon or Anna Halima? The best of all of you is the one who

00:08:06 --> 00:08:18

learned the Quran. So there is a process of learning Abdullah Hypno Omar may Allah be pleased with him narrated Malkoff and so this is his statement, enamel and movie thank

00:08:19 --> 00:08:36

you it can only be knowledgeable through seeking knowledge through enrolling in a process of education, learning and seeking knowledge. And this is not like a short term process. This is a long term plan to learn

00:08:38 --> 00:08:44

tal Al Quran, the one who learned the Quran then I lemahieu and taught it to others

00:08:45 --> 00:08:51

and he teaches it to others. This person is the best before Allah subhanaw taala Hi Eurocom

00:08:52 --> 00:09:03

Hi Eurocom the best of all of you is the one who learns the Quran and teaches it to others. The superiority of a scholar of alone person

00:09:04 --> 00:09:14

over those who have no knowledge is like the super unity of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam over the rest of his followers.

00:09:15 --> 00:09:18

Like the full moon over the rest of the stars.

00:09:19 --> 00:09:51

Yes, they are righteous but knowledge means the person more aware of Allah subhanaw taala makes it more that feeling makes him more dutiful to Allah. In addition to you have an access of passing on this knowledge to others, so he benefits others, and each and every audience who benefits from him from his knowledge from his teachings comes in the scale of his good deeds, as in the Hadith at dunhua Halal hygienic fit, and we've studied this hadith before.

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

The one who teaches people goodness of righteousness gets a similar word of those who benefit from his not

00:10:00 --> 00:10:48

to benefit from his guidance and act upon it every time they practice that this person who taught them what to do, gets a similar word. And also, as you say, without diminishing the word of either one of them. So the question is perfectly phrased, Paul Hellyer stole leadin Allah Mona, well leadin, Anya, Allah moon, no way, se are the equal, those who know and those who know not, and we learn what kind of knowledge it is necessary for every Muslim to acquire certain knowledge to learn about his deal about his belief, how to offer the acts of worship, and if he is in a particular business to learn the facts of this business transaction, halal and haram. It's lawful and it's a

00:10:48 --> 00:11:06

lawful and then there is a commended knowledge, the knowledge of medicine, engineering, mathematics, geography, history, language recommended, but this is a even though it is mandatory, but mandatory, communal duty

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

if some people excelled in this field, and they are studying and teaching in this field, and it's not my duty, it is not mandatory upon me on any particular person, versus the knowledge which means the person aware of Allah Who is Allah raises the awareness of Allah's Presence, no knowledge of learning how to recite the Quran, how to pray, how to worship Allah, and what should be avoided. This is a duty of every single mostly male or a female, rich or poor code. So when somebody excels in any particular field, he becomes a scientist, as a scientist, and he is leading a scientific team in NASA. Great. And this person's name is Mohammed. Wonderful. We love to see that.

00:12:02 --> 00:12:08

Read the Quran. Unfortunately, I don't know how to read the Quran, why not? Because I'm busy

00:12:09 --> 00:12:27

accomplishing knowledge of the space. That is not sufficient. That doesn't give you the superiority, being a scientist and also being learned in your deen knowing how to recite Quran knowing how to offer your prayer, knowing the basics of the day that makes you superior

00:12:30 --> 00:12:35

and never saw the light as an MSc in Allah or mela Iike who Lucena you will

00:12:38 --> 00:12:42

have the number two official hurry Hello saloon Allah more luminous Hi.

00:12:43 --> 00:13:00

Allah will bless those who teach people goodness, the angels, they the windows of heaven, the rulers of Earth, even the ants in their holes. They invoke Allah to bless karma, Santi, to bless those who teach people, goodness, where is your share in that?

00:13:01 --> 00:13:04

Way is your sharing that because in sha Allah

00:13:06 --> 00:13:18

in a very short period of time, it could be long, but when you look at it from the angle of how long would it be 60 7080 100 years is spiritual.

00:13:20 --> 00:13:37

You're going to meet Allah subhanaw taala. So what would go with you to the grave? What would benefit you on the Surat what would benefit you on the Day of Judgment? Provided brothers and sisters this knowledge is thought and thought sincerely for the sake of Allah.

00:13:38 --> 00:13:54

Beware, that in a stone Hadith the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, the first three categories of people to be thrown in fire. One of them is a scholar, a knowledgeable person, knowledgeable in the deed.

00:13:56 --> 00:14:44

Allah the Almighty will resurrect him on the day of judgment and say, oh, so and so. I will still bestowed upon you the knowledge of the Quran. The knowledge of the deen What did you do with it? Say I learned it for your sake and I taught it for your sake. Allah Almighty then will confront him with the reality of his hidden intention which were knew no one knew it, but Allah Almighty and the person who intended this evil intention. So you will confront him with his concealed intention. And you say, he didn't do that for my sake. You only did so so that people will admire you and will say he is a scholar. And he is a very outspoken person. He's a very motivational, a great motivational

00:14:44 --> 00:14:47

speaker and so on what P

00:14:49 --> 00:14:51

and it will save this is your word.

00:14:52 --> 00:14:59

Then he will be dragged on his face and thrown in fire. So when ever Allah Almighty gave the super

00:15:00 --> 00:15:20

unity to the scholars, you also give them the responsibility of protecting this knowledge and act upon it. And making certain that this knowledge was sought and taught exclusively for the sake of Allah seeking His pleasure, then its reward is tremendous and beyond expectation.

00:15:21 --> 00:15:32

That was the idea of Surah Zomer watch Enamul nawawi introduced the chapter of honoring and revealing the scholars and the elders when then

00:15:33 --> 00:15:45

we begin with the first Hadith which is narrated by one of the companions who attended the Battle of bed and he was one of Unsa His name is Abu Thomas rude.

00:15:46 --> 00:15:56

Edna at Bedri Al Ansari of the Allahu Allah, this is going to be Hadith number 348 indices.

00:15:57 --> 00:16:25

Carla, Carla Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa Solana Yeah omole coma Accra home Nikita villa for incanto filter ah at is aware and for Allah Moombas sunnah Finca can off his Sunette is a weapon for academic boom Hey Jonathan Fay in campbellfield he gerat is aware and for academic boom sin. Walla

00:16:27 --> 00:16:30

Walla mana Raju Raju la vie Soltani

00:16:32 --> 00:16:39

while I applaud fee Beatty, he Allah crema de inlab, he is now our Muslim.

00:16:40 --> 00:16:52

And this hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, the person who is best versed in the citation of the book of Allah should lead the prayer.

00:16:54 --> 00:17:19

But if all of those who are present are equally versed in it, then the one who has most knowledge of the Sunnah, if they are equal in that respect to the one who has immigrated to Medina first, if they're all equal in that respect, then the oldest of them

00:17:20 --> 00:17:55

no man should lead another in prayer where the labourer has authority or say in his house without his permission, in his favorite place. I'm going to explain this hadith because this is a very lovely Hadith. And it teaches us a bunch of etiquette that we should be aware of, we have to learn the Adapt of the Imam. The Imam is a responsibility, the leadership, whether the leadership in the prayer or the leadership, the political leadership.

00:17:56 --> 00:18:32

So the Prophet sallallahu sallam said with regards to the religious leadership in the prayer, your own karma, up around whom normally the word Accra and CA, in the Sunnah refers to I'll have the memorization, the one who gathered the Quran in his heart, the one who can recite the Quran by heart without looking has memorized the Quran. So the word Accra home, which is translated here as well versed means the word who memorizes more Quran

00:18:34 --> 00:18:40

is more worthy to lead the prayer because he knows more Quran than others.

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

Failing can fulfill karate, so

00:18:46 --> 00:18:50

if they all memorize the same amount of the Quran

00:18:51 --> 00:19:02

we have 10 people to pray, everybody memorize 10 parts or 15 Paris, then we have to look for something that makes this person advantageous

00:19:03 --> 00:19:21

or superior Allama whom the Sunnah this person has memorized or excels in the book of Hadith has memorized more. A Hadith knows the Sunnah of the Prophet Salah Salem, more than others did, he should lead the prayer.

00:19:23 --> 00:19:59

But if they're all the same, attended the same, comprehended the same knowledge for Akadama whom he wrote them. Then the one who's always in the Hedgehog, the one who performed Hedra before those who are attending, as you know that the migration didn't take place overnight. It took place over several years. So some companions emigrated first like Abu selama and his wife and some companions immigration was delayed until even the day of the conquest of Makkah, then they met the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

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

I have way so that when emigrated first and knows more Quran we all know the same amount of Quran by heart know the same sunnah. But one of them have emigrated earlier, then the one who have emigrated earlier is given precedence. So this super unity is not because this person looks cool, or this person is taller, or this person carries whatever passport this person has performed Hedra earlier, and this is a privilege.

00:20:34 --> 00:20:45

He answered the call of Allah before others, he left his whole, his business, his family and his loved ones, for the sake of Allah.

00:20:46 --> 00:21:33

He abandoned everything for the sake of Allah first, even though others have done it later. But he's given superiority leading the prayer. Basically, since the prayer is the greatest act of worship. And it is the ibadah, which we do vary more frequent than any other bed five times a day. And it is highly recommended. Or in another view, it's a wild trip to attended in congregation. So the congregation who are being presented before Allah subhanho wa taala. To offer the prayer should introduce the greatest one a form to lead them in that meeting with Allah. How do we know that whether this person is better, that person is better?

00:21:34 --> 00:22:28

Allah decided, the one who knows more of my work should lead you in prayer to communicate with me. In axon Asana, Linhof, see walima if he did well, he did well for himself and all the followers. But if he did bad, it's only against himself. It will not harm anyone else. So we judge according to what appears to us, I don't know whether this person at home is pious rightist or not, but it appears to us in the open outside, in public places this person have memorized the Quran this person knows the Sunnah. This person appears to be very pious, go ahead and lead the prayer. You're the best one to lead us while meeting with Allah Almighty. To to communicate with ALLAH almighty to

00:22:28 --> 00:23:00

recite His word while we're listening to resuscitation. Failing can often Hidatsa if they are equal with regards to the hijra, masha Allah, those who are present to pray right now all have emigrated at the same time, that the womb sin and then the oldest of them, And subhanAllah nots. Age when it comes to leadership does not matter. Whenever the younger is more qualified.

00:23:02 --> 00:23:36

If the younger is more qualified than age doesn't matter. We do respect the elders. We revere them and honor them. But when it comes to the leadership, it has nothing to do with because he's older, let Him lead the prey, but he doesn't know how to recite Surah Fatiha. He makes mistakes in the sinful surah he barely knows what loss and if he forgot anything in the prayer he wouldn't know what to do. Well, in this case, we do not compliment

00:23:38 --> 00:23:59

each other. When it comes to the leadership. We offer the person whom we believe that is more well versed in the Quran in the Sunnah the hero to lead us in the prayer. Then the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam has said while I am while I will mana Raju Raju laffy Soltani, what does it mean?

00:24:01 --> 00:24:19

Sometimes, whenever we have a conference or whenever we visit somebody at his home at his ranch, and he is living far away, so we Lee, we pray in congregation at his place in whose place in the horse place?

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


00:24:22 --> 00:24:58

I am the teacher. And he invited me to teach the congregation in his house. Yes, that is true. But this is his authority. This is his house, or invited me to give a lecture in his school, in his college, in his center in his masjid, and I'm more well versed than him. I have memorized the whole Quran for instance, with the 10 different dialects and I know all the sound, Hadith by heart and all of that, but the local person, the one who have the authority here, the appointed Imam

00:25:00 --> 00:25:16

Is there so this is his full time. I should not even expect myself to read the prayer. I should step back, because this is his business. This is his whole plan his authority. Unless if you insist, please lead us in the prayer.

00:25:17 --> 00:26:03

If he allows you if you request you to read the prayer, then it it is permissible, but it is not permissible to have the thought in your mind that I should be reading the prayer. When you go to somebody's masjid and Masha Allah, you are a PhD holder and you have memorized the whole Quran. And this person was one of your students. I visit many Islamic centers in America, in Europe, in Denmark, in London, in Malaysia here and there and I find the Imam was one of my students 10 years ago then he introduces himself does give me the right automatically to say well Masha Allah Civic Center, very big mesh, and one of my students is the amount of displaced does it give me the right

00:26:03 --> 00:26:09

automatically to step forward to lead the prayer and to tell people that he was my student? Of course not.

00:26:10 --> 00:27:03

superiority is not in this you have to humble yourself. And you should not even think about trespassing. Translate this in his right over his right and read in the prayer without his permission. If he asked you and insist, please do this in the prayer. You may do that and it becomes permissible. While I uphold fee Beatty, Aleta crematory he inlab isn't the word that chromatic he from the honor or the favor, which is the favorite place of sitting. Like I used to have a recliner at home, which is my favorite place. So when I invite people that this is my seat, if I invited my professor and my teachers on my shoe, now because you my teacher, you gave yourself the right to

00:27:03 --> 00:27:16

wander around and to choose the best seat and said, No, no. You said wherever the host asked you to set and this is Islamic etiquette. Number one when you visit somebody's house

00:27:17 --> 00:28:01

you're not supposed to browse around and look every corner. You know, the the you know, some people are like that, especially in the foreigners. Oh, I like your painting. I like your bookcase and they start grabbing things. I'm looking at very cute vase and what did you buy this rug from and nice guy would couch a nice sofa and all of that. This is not permissible. This is not permissible. I visited some somebody's house once and afterward. He had the best house. In the in the city that I visited in America, people used to go and take pictures. So when I was asked how did you like it? I said, I don't know. I haven't seen it. How come? You've been invited several times? Yes, I haven't seen it

00:28:01 --> 00:28:46

because I'm not allowed to. I'm not allowed to browse around and stay here and there or look even at the furniture and whenever he sits you somewhere you should sit there and keep your site limited to the area where you're having a meeting you should not wander around. That's not permissible. That is a mean of Allah coffee, Verity highlighter, creamer at 11 Unless if he says please have a seat here. This is my favorite place. And let me show you around. This is my bedroom and this is my bookcase and this is whatever he wants to show you as well. Maybe in a matter of beta for HUD to speak about Allah has given up on him. No problem in this case because he permitted you or invited you to do

00:28:46 --> 00:29:00

that. You see the beautiful Islamic etiquette May Allah subhanaw taala make us nearer Muslims and adhere to the teachings of the Quran Anderson we're gonna take a short break and sha Allah will be back in a few minutes for some more please stay tuned

00:29:21 --> 00:29:59

Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh and welcome back. I guess you remember already our phone numbers Area code 0020228 treble 5249 and the other number is area code 0020 Double 125 Double 08679. The email address is [email protected] and the Holland hadith is Hadith number 349 in the series of gardens of the pious, the narrator of the hadith is the same narrator of the previous hadith of almost roder Aqua inom overdry Al Ansari, may Allah be pleased

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

With him Karla cannot Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, yams are home and Kiva and feel solidarity where coal is still. Well, Dr. Lee who felt after if Apollo Bukom Lee and aeonium income all halloumi were no ha. So melody Anna Luna home. So melody Anna Luna home, pro Muslim,

00:30:27 --> 00:31:06

Obama's road al Bedri. May Allah be pleased with him narrated that the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him, would place his hands upon our shoulders, when we would form our rules for the prayer and he would say, stand and say, Rose, and do not differ among yourselves, or else your house will differ due to this district court. let those be nearest to me, who are mature and endowed with understanding of the day. Then those who are nearest to them in these suspects, and then those who are nice to them.

00:31:08 --> 00:31:23

Another beautiful etiquette that the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam taught his companions, verbal, and by action as well, he used to practice that. You know, when you love someone and you place your hand on his shoulder,

00:31:25 --> 00:31:40

it gives an assurance and comfort the person. When the Prophet salallahu Salam is ready to lead the prayer. He wouldn't just order them as in to call the karma and say Allahu Akbar, and start the race. No.

00:31:42 --> 00:31:54

As we heard before, he used to say to Bilal Neville, salatu, habila, he is this joy and delight, the comfort his eyes, were in offer in the prayer whenever he enters the prayer.

00:31:55 --> 00:32:38

So he wanted everybody to feel the same. He wanted all his companions to enjoy this peace of mind, and the comfort, and he would place his hands on his shoulder, on their shoulders. And he would instruct them with the following. Sometimes whenever the commander gives orders that are taken as orders, but whenever you do it kindly, and wipe over their shoulders and say, Istanbul, straighten up, fix your rows line up. I don't want to see anyone ahead of the line. Some people are like that. Some people are not used to be equal to people.

00:32:40 --> 00:32:45

They don't feel like we should be treated the same. This is called arrogance.

00:32:46 --> 00:33:02

And this arrogance will cause this accord between the hearts I will be praying next to somebody whom I feel that he doesn't want to stand next to me. He feels offended because I'm standing next to him develop the I have debt. So Irma hottap said,

00:33:04 --> 00:33:17

we all should be treated the same. When somebody stepped on his outer garments, so he slapped him and armor top order that he should be punished with the same and he converted he abandoned the deed and he ran away

00:33:19 --> 00:33:20


00:33:21 --> 00:33:35

and some of the Meccan Cheves requested the Prophet sallallahu Sallam if you wanna listen, if you want us to listen to you have a special meeting for us. We cannot sit with Amara and with Bilal with our servants.

00:33:36 --> 00:33:44

Allah subhanho wa Taala order the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam in the Quran immediately before he would even think about it.

00:33:47 --> 00:34:04

While I thought why not and whom to read through Zenith or hated dunya? Don't you ever turn your eyes away from these guys from Ammar and Bilal and these poor companions while oppo terminal fund called Bamboo anzi Karina waterbar Hawa can Google Photo.

00:34:06 --> 00:34:52

Hang around those guys. So in the prayer, everyone should worry about one thing whether my prayer will be accepted or not, don't worry about those who are next to you. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would spend time sometimes using them as work sometimes by wiping by his own hands over their shoulders, to make sure that their rows are straight. Subhanallah the use not to have lines like we do now. But the rules will be straightened. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam would make sure that there are no gaps he will order them to not to leave gaps. Some people make fun of that, you know, those who hate the religion, they were Muslim names. They call themselves secular and liberals. They

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

say that you mean that if there is a gap between two people Satan will be standing in between Yeah, this is what the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

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

says I don't see no Satan's we don't see no Satan's not even outside not only in the masjid that's because Allah Almighty says in Now we are alcohol Kobe who mean Hi Salah Tirana home. Because Satan's indigene could see us and we cannot see them.

00:35:17 --> 00:35:27

So the prophets, Allah, Allah cinema said, do not leave gaps because Satan would fill in and would cause the DIS accord between the hearts and will cause this action.

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

But here's the situation. Sometimes when I stand in the prayer next to somebody, especially the elders, and some uncles,

00:35:37 --> 00:36:12

they think that when you try to fill in the gap and come close to him, so he stays away from you, I see them doing this with many of the youth, like, you know, why are you to stand next to me, leave me alone. You know what, leave him alone. Because the more you approach him, the more he feels offended, and he may he may even become loud in objecting to, and disturb everybody in the prayer. So you do your best you stand up where the opening between your feet equal to the size, the width of your chest and said that is sufficient.

00:36:14 --> 00:37:02

If the other person is running away, running away, that is not your problem. But the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam Tada. So to fill in the gaps because Satan would fill in if we leave gaps between us to line up and to straighten our lines. Even if the person standing next to me is my driver is my cook is my maid. It doesn't matter before Allah subhanaw taala we're all the same Abu Bakr we stand next to Bilal, and Abu Bakr was the master he pushes blood to free him. He was a slave. And I will work from boredom and he freedom you send next one more is then was moneyback fan the multimillionaire have documented now. No one would ask who are you because before Allah subhanaw

00:37:02 --> 00:37:04

taala, we're all the same.

00:37:06 --> 00:37:08

We're all the same. And this is how it should be.

00:37:10 --> 00:37:14

I happen to meet some people who accepted Islam

00:37:16 --> 00:37:18

because they have seen Muslims praying.

00:37:19 --> 00:37:45

I've seen some ex American marines accepting Islam even though they have been misinformed. And they have been bombarded with stereotyping and misinformation about Islam. And for the first time they visited the masjid Islamic center in the States, Islam into their hearts. The person the officer tells me that,

00:37:46 --> 00:38:02

you know, when I entered the machine, I wanted to see what these guys do. I thought this is like their headquarter and they have grenades and machine guns. And when the economy is cold, and I saw them praying, this is when Islam entered my heart who taught them that

00:38:03 --> 00:38:16

and later on, he learned the Quran and he became a teacher of the Quran and this is when I met him while he was teaching the Quran in the machine. I have seen some cases like that.

00:38:17 --> 00:38:26

So, this is something that non Muslims envy Muslims for because and this is what the Prophet salallahu SMSA will be given this privilege the others will not given.

00:38:28 --> 00:38:42

When we line up in the prayer, this is similar to the angels when they line up in heaven before Allah subhanaw taala there is love there is harmony. Look at it in the How are Subhanallah

00:38:43 --> 00:38:52

when you see black and white, rich and poor, you know sometimes I'm praying next to somebody, I don't know who is he?

00:38:53 --> 00:39:15

And we had a chat. Then we spoke about Dawa in in Africa and how much support it needs and how much money then I find this person is a multi millionaire and he has a big company and he says on me to dig water wells wherever you guys go. You started going by himself and he became Masha Allah pioneer in this field.

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

So you never know who is the person next to you. But every person while sitting and while standing in the prayer, sitting waiting for the prayer and standing in the prayer worried about one thing with Allah except for me. With Allah accept the whole prayer or half of it per quarter effect. That is a thing. And that what matters most brothers and sisters.

00:39:40 --> 00:39:45

Then he said nearly any meme come all halloumi one no ha

00:39:48 --> 00:39:59

nowadays we see that in some official gatherings the first row is reserved for whom for the big shots. Sometimes they don't know how to read a small Surah of the

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


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


00:40:03 --> 00:40:39

But he's the president back. But he's a prime minister back. Why? Because what if the Imam forgets an eye? What if the Imam makes an error? Who's going to correct him? The fourth the Quran, the person who is ready to replace the imam in case that the Imam forgot, in case the Imam remember that he did not have wudu or avoid his widow so he has to leave the prayer for any reason, who's gonna replace the Imam and take the lead a person who doesn't know how to read from the Quran.

00:40:41 --> 00:40:43

It happened once that in a halka

00:40:45 --> 00:40:46

in Hajj

00:40:47 --> 00:40:49

and a friend of mine was leading the halka

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

everyone was reading from the Quran

00:40:54 --> 00:41:05

and you know, an homage sometimes you don't know those who are sitting next to you, especially if you do not travel together. So when it was his turn to recite.

00:41:06 --> 00:41:17

He recited from the beginning of one of the sources of elderflower memory sited saying Bismillah AR Rahman AR Rahim, LM, and he's an Arab.

00:41:19 --> 00:41:21

So my brother

00:41:22 --> 00:41:27

gently corrected him and he said, Mother, it is rather early for

00:41:29 --> 00:41:31


00:41:33 --> 00:41:34

He said, No alum.

00:41:36 --> 00:42:10

So my brother was shocked. He doesn't know what to do. He doesn't want to embarrass him. And he insisted, then he said, I'm a professor of whatever, and I know better. That's called arrogance. Perhaps if you say that, you know in your field better than us. We couldn't agree. But you read in the Quran wrong. And you feel yourself better than others because the degree that you hold and you have no knowledge about the Quran. So we do not introduce people to read the prayer because of their position

00:42:11 --> 00:42:38

or because of their degree in whatever knowledge either because as a prophet salaallah Salah MSAD o Mo, comma, Accra, whom Nikita villa, what about those who follow the Imam, the people who are ready to replace the imam in case that the Imam has to step back has to leave the prayer or if he forgets an area, then we put the father in the last row so that when the Imam forgets he has to shout,

00:42:39 --> 00:42:49

why? Because the big shots are occupying the official and behind the Imam to be before the cameras that is not permissible. And Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Raquette

00:42:50 --> 00:42:54

sister Miriam from the case a Salam aleikum.

00:42:55 --> 00:43:02

Wa Alaikum salaam wa rahmatullah wa barakato. How are you che fine hamdulillah Thank you, Sister, Maryam Go ahead. Shake.

00:43:04 --> 00:43:12

I when I was more my theory, my theory I remember my parents do since

00:43:13 --> 00:43:22

I was 10 years old, my parents do educate me about the world, that religion and question so because

00:43:24 --> 00:43:37

my mother and my father, the they are always they are only bringing so basically, the teach us about that, that Christian religion, that

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

it's very hard for me to, to understand. And

00:43:44 --> 00:43:45


00:43:46 --> 00:44:20

I am almost leaving, I'm having dinner unless you have an easy to understand the Islam and Hamdulillah. So I want to I want to learn more, more about Islam, because I have so much relative, in my, in my, in my, in my country, in the sight of my mother and my father, we are question two I want to make Dawa with them that my knowledge in Islam is just solely

00:44:22 --> 00:44:33

an Al Hamdulillah I have been I mean I was in my country I you share a little bit in my knowledge in Islam, and Hamdulillah this already that

00:44:34 --> 00:44:54

we feel enlightening that I had to share with them, too. I want to learn more more about Islam was a one to save the punishment of the Hellfire in that the judgment that one then Insha Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala guide the Islamic MFI insurance

00:44:56 --> 00:44:59

now i want i read the Quran ECP easily

00:45:00 --> 00:45:05

So I want to learn more about Islam so what shall I do in sha Allah?

00:45:06 --> 00:46:02

I'm gonna, I'm gonna talk to them to grant you a free scholarship for who the academy inshallah to study all the subjects for free with us in sha Allah azza wa jal This is the least we can do as a token of appreciation for a new Muslim, and inshallah just contact the [email protected] or ask a toda TV email them and I would leave them on notice in sha Allah and every new Muslim who would like to study Islam we'll be more than happy to offer them a free scholarship in sha Allah for who the academy saw the RP and CRR and see her and Hadith absolutely for free in sha Allah which should give you guys an easier and better access than others. Meanwhile, I encourage those whom Allah bless with

00:46:02 --> 00:46:47

the means to sponsor students so that they can study for free whether with with the academy or any other new Muslim Academy in sha Allah. So Leanne even come on hola hola. Um, you will know her the mature and the people of understanding of the deen should follow the Imam. Sometimes the person would bring his child and he wants him to pray next to him and he would be right behind the Imam. That is not right. The person who should follow the Imam and those who should be to the right and to the left of the person, the Imam is in the center. And the person behind the Imam is the one who's ready to replace him in case that he has to leave for any reason, as we mentioned earlier, and to

00:46:47 --> 00:46:54

the right and to the left, likewise, then the miners should be in the back then women will be after them.

00:46:56 --> 00:47:48

As I said it is not by position or by position. It said that you see some leaders of Muslim countries pray in aid, and he will be replacing the left hand over the right hand. It's like they are just coming to say that we're here we'll pray but if you pray, you will at least know the basics that you need to place the right on top of the left is nothing that you press the left on top of the right. And it's sarcastic. Then also lately in a funeral prayer, you see some of the stars, the leaders of the community in the Muslim community. When the Imam finished the citation of Surah Al Fatiha in a funeral prayer then you say the Allahu Akbar the first row wound for a coup ah,

00:47:49 --> 00:47:58

what is this? You didn't pray? You don't know that Salah will janazah doesn't have Roku and or sujood but basically

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

I do not cast all the blame upon them. And we I do not consider myself any better than anyone. Allah knows best. But what I'm saying is give yourself a chance to learn the deen of Allah subhanaw taala well when it comes to the leadership in the deen superiority is given to the one whom the Prophet sallallahu sallam said Accra I follow him like a tabula we actually run out of time to be contained in sha Allah next week. Until then I leave you all in on loss protection and care was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

00:48:40 --> 00:48:41

have a

00:48:43 --> 00:48:46

love of God is the greatest

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

glory to Him. He asked me to be the best and gave his best religion to allah God has been greatest

00:49:00 --> 00:49:02

glory to Him.

00:49:03 --> 00:49:21

It used to be they gave his religion to them so why did they know that? forgetting all about and in paradise, we're shipping comms fire and stones sending the best with the cheapest

00:49:22 --> 00:49:33

day ignore that forgetting all about bad guys are shipping cause fire and stores selling the best, cheapest

00:49:37 --> 00:49:38
