are Salatu was Salam O Allah.
Mohammed Ali, he was savage nine, beloved brothers and sisters in Islam Islam Allah can walk with a lie, he
was a renewing,
from the last.
Last week we began, we began this class has been going on for a long time. We will initially we did the biography of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and then we completed that. And then we started the age of the Holocaust machine. And we didn't complete we just basically spoke about avacado Golan and his reign. I mean, we took a long break. And now we back again from the law. And I think the feeling from the class was let's talk to him. Because I don't think many people will remember much of what was discussed about the quizzes. Now, I'm sure many of you will be familiar with where we stopped, and also a few new faces in the class. So this class in Sharla, is going to be the, the age of
Apollo karoshi. So after the Papa Solon passed away, what happened? What did the Sahaba do? And we know that these this period, before Islam became ruled by dynasties by kingship by kings of believers. You know, he didn't say it was an age of the rightly guided caliphs, the fall, and in reality, they are five, five qualified Oceania five, rightly guided caliphs, therefore, that is usually God. And inshallah we'll speak about the five likely God has put a halt on God.
And we will discuss because within this time span a lot until today, in the history of Islam, in terms of military expansion in terms of the expansion of the oma, no age, expanded Islam more rapidly than in the age of the philosophy what the Sahaba de nos P is in particular, in the in the age of Sigmar bucket and cinema made kind of no other column for after they really had such a prolific expansion. It's one of the things that many, many things so for example, the first the compilation of the Quran into a book. So this is something that happened in the time for some really big events happen in the age and for us why we should know this beyond history. Professor solemn Of
course, says, follow my sooner follow my example in my way, and the sooner the cooler fell rashidun and magazine mean body and follow the sooner and the weight of the rightly guided caliphs after me, the rightly guided caliphs after me. And when we look now, 1400 years later at all the kings are the rulers and some very good kings and good believers, we talk about Allah Rashid, in the rightly guided parents, the ones who we actually look at, not just from a historical perspective, actually, from a legal Islamic perspective, we look at these four personalities, we look at these four and inshallah they are five, we'll talk about the fourth one, they should reign halifa and there are
some that is the is the sixth, one more an honorary heartful of Russia and you know, the unlimited
halifa is, is is regarded as an all the relief, one of the Omega philosophers, one of the hollyford he was was from the mega family, you know, almost miraculous is
very far down the line, when he was such a pious man, such a great Khalifa, in terms of what he gave away in terms of his wealth in terms of his, he basically took the wealth of his entire royal family and gave it away to charity. And he basically, you know, brought the whole afaan. Rather, he brought up and you're such a pious man that he is regarded that he is the sixth of the Holocaust machine, although he is an honorary title, not only not not Sahabi. So he doesn't get that label, but he's an honorary title. But that's a story for another time. That's under the rule. So now I'm speaking about my bucket at CD, the first halifa of our religion. In fact, in reality, the only person that
is befitting to receive the title of halifa halifa is almost an opera, or in the geography of the halifa that I intend to place on the earth. You'll find it the Quranic devices, urgent. What does this mean? It's basically my representative health is behind meaning my substitute, if you will. Now, side note to the federal law schools as he substitutes on earth is no substitute for a lot, but my representative on earth is in men. It's a powerful statement, that the custodian really of this dounia raises Wilkinson. Now, the halifa is the one with the man he's the he's the second in command. And the reason why aboubaker got that title, he is the substitute of the prophet SAW Selim
live Hulk, the one that follows him. So he's a real the real word is Khalifa Rasulullah, the, the the halifa of the Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And in fact, when he passed away and say no was the halifa of the halifa rasulillah. And we realized, Oh, this is going to be a problem. We keep adding another halifa. The substitute of this
substitute them, so then they change it to just halifa. Short, but in reality, that's not correct. Let me say I'm even meaning the Commander of the Faithful. So the only person who truly carries the title of halifa is Abu Bakr Siddiq of Yolanda whether you like it or not, that is a whole discussion and it will go into the controversial issues about abubaker of your lawn was he was he legitimately elected?
Because we live in that day and age and Subhanallah It is like when you look at his resume, when we go through what he had done and who he was, there is no doubt that he was the most befitting person for this job, not just because we love him, but just because we have a signal Gemma, when you look at the proven history track record that both Sunni Shia Muslim agree who this man was, you realize that this person is vanilla, you know what he did? He was the most befitting man for the job. And also he checked out after he passed away. We look at how the situation was before he got into the hot seat. And when he left how the situation if it can be no doubt Subhana Allah, Allah that Allah
subhanho wa Taala as Allah mentions, he's pleased with him. So who is this man abubaker many of us know a little bit of story. Do you even know his name? What's his name?
What's his name? His name is not aboubaker Abu Bakar his father of buckler is like a like a wild, strong young Cadillac stallion, father of the young camel chemins. That's not his name, but his his lack of his title.
Right. So his name is Abdullah Abdullah. And in fact, that wasn't his birth name. His birth name was Abu Qatada, the slave of the Kaaba came from a society that worships different things. And so his father gave him the name the slave of the Kaaba, this name is haram. You cannot be up to anyone except Allah. You cannot even be Abdullah Sunni, the slave of the lawsuit is around length, you can only be called under the law. So the province sort of changed his name from Abu Qatada to Abdullah Abdullah syedna. Do we not being bound to the Kaaba
five times a day he makes
17 or more than say, 30 something such as for the Kaaba, how is this possible?
We talk about this religion is about monotheism worshipping Allah alone, not worshipping idols yet you as someone might say, Muslims are the people that does the most idol worship all the time you're bowing before a stone.
How do you answer that your kids you asked this question.
Excellent. So the brother is saying the Kaaba is the direction of our eternal Qibla the stones itself have no holiness meaning Lhasa Holloman this would be the case. If the Kaaba disappeared tomorrow with the stones were transported and this did happen already. I mentioned this before a time came where a group actually invaded Makkah aufgenommen so sell them and they sold the Blackstone part of this caravan, they sold it and they took it to Bahrain for 20 years. No one went before March. No one made the people at Bahrain. There are times when the club was damaged with flooding. And the stones it really the stones that are they now are not the stones that you put on.
The Kaaba gets updated and the new makini building structure. Every after 1020 years the stones begin to crumble. And new bricks and mortar stones are made in China. So there is nothing holy was secret about the stones of the cabinet rather than the direction, the direction and even though and those of us in my car that have been in the closet by now you also know the Kaaba that we see today that we make the offer on facing out direction Salah is not the way NaVi Brahim had made it. We remember that my students I want to put you on the spot here to remember that the cargo that we see now is wrong. It's wrong. It's incorrect. And you want to explain why it's incorrect.
The shape the shape is also not fully agreed upon
when the prophets of Allah when he conquered Makkah, so he says to Ayesha, with the daughter of a worker is you know, had it not been that your people who are new in Islam, I would have bought the Kaaba, the way people are doing and Bolton's but shows his wisdom he takes over a city. Imagine the first thing he does is he destroys the cabin. For people who are new in Islam, how would they feel like well, you know, what is what kind of religion is this? Now we need the Prophet explains that the way the Kaaba should look how it should have been how he brought in my son bolted, was you know that that crowd, that hijabis manual that we see, that was that is part of the cabinet, the cabinet
should extend all the way that's the foundation, and it has two doors, a front and a back door. So it should be a second Oh, but the kurush so we know that this happened before the navy seals and became a profit. The corporation had to rebuild the car because it became old and damaged. But I didn't have enough funds so they listed as a work in progress we'll build up until here. We'll put the semi circle thing in front meaning like you know how you find these houses have finished. The Kaaba was like a we will just
Leave this thing here. We know it's to be covered when we get more funds, we will fix it. But that time never came. I never had the opportunity to build credit. And in fact, it was aboubaker, his grandson became a califa, 14 years, 14 years of the lighteners Zubaydah who is will come to inshallah, if we ever get to that his grandson became a Hollywood very, very short period. He built the Kaaba correctly, he actually voted correctly, but it got damaged during his fights with the other leaders at that time, there was some internal civil war that time and he got damaged. So he rebuilt it, he had an opportunity to rebuild it. And then he got damaged again for a second time,
and they rebuilt it incorrectly back to the wrong way. And so when the halifa at that time, who built it wrong when he heard that you actually bought it incorrectly? So he said, should I revamp it properly? And then Mr. Malik was alive at that time, the great scholar of the Maliki method. So he says, just leave it. The Kaaba should be the minute you start fixing it and then someone else repeats it and someone else breaks it. We don't want the cargo to be something that kings play around with. Just leave it as it is. And that's the palace tokuyama mistake. And that's why for piano that fatwa, so flexible for Malaga, stessel. Today, we will cover is as these, how do we get
to the Kaabah humbucker name right. His name Abdullah Kava. So it's an incorrect name. We don't worship the Kaaba, we don't worship the stones. As you can see from the analogy the stones have changed with that is the direction South Kibera.
he was about two and a half years, Junior younger than the Prophet sallallahu they were selling them. And even before he became before Islam, the advent of Islam, like socialism, and like many of the early converts of Islam, the early Sahaba, they had already had a position in in American society in terms of who they were in terms of the parity in terms of the taqwa. You see, Islam is not something that we, you know, force on people, Islam, when a sane, logical, rational, good person looks at Islam, and he sees the true message of Islam. It will incline to him naturally, whenever you as a good person, if you're a good moral person, and we know a good person, leave religion out
of it. If we didn't put religion into the equation. We know who the honest people and who's not on dishonest, we know who are the aggressive people and who are the soft natured people. When people that have naturally good qualities, when they see Islam, it will attract them. And that's why the very first Sahaba those who embraced Islam early, when it was difficult to be a Muslim, when you'll be persecuted. If you look at them, it's a who's who, of the, of the well, like people of the Mexican society, people that ever looked up to people that were admired in the community, the unreasonable people, they because it agreed with what they knew to be true. So what about the alarm?
He mentions that never in his life, even before Islam, did he worship an idol. In fact, his father, Abu hanifa, soccer, actually, his father's name is Abu hanifa. Also not his name, his name was man, like abubaker stats names with man, but he's nicknames Abu hanifa. So Abu hanifa, Abu Bakar, a young man's into the temple to the idols, and said, these are your gods, you must worship them, and a bucket of nations that never when he saw them, these items, is that if so is it can you feed me? Give me water, give me food, of course it doesn't respond. And you kind of throw a stone at one of them. And he said, Now I know for sure these things are not. There's nothing holy about these
things. So he never ever worship an idol in his life, even before he became Muslim, even before he embraced Islam never made sense to him from a logical perspective. He said this was comical. Of course, he acknowledged that he's a creator. And we said this time and time and time again, we'll continue to say this, the sheikh, and the thing that this religion came the message of Islam, la la la la, it didn't come to a people who didn't believe in Allah. Yes. Did the Qureshi believe in Allah? Did Abu Jihad believe in Allah? Did Abu lahab believe in Allah? Yes, they did. But they believed what Allah they are idols or they are Gods with Allah that we get to him through them. To
get to Allah, I need to go through the idol, through the grave, through the climate, through the desert through the valley. That's what I need to do through Jesus through the cross to get to the Creator. Islam says no, you there is no intermediary between you and a blob, there is no Illa with him, it's only a lot. So
abubaker of course, acknowledged that these one Allah one creator, one sustainer, but these things that are worshipping I don't need to turn to the inevitable and beyond just being a sort of what we call the religion of Hanif in the religion of Liberace, which was not to worship You know, besides Allah, even it also Ayesha mentioned that my father never even drank alcohol in before Islam before it was haram before it was Haram. Now Subhan Allah, we should also switch if you weren't Muslim wasn't wrong.
How many of us would actually not drink alcohol? Not take a try. Take a puff. We'll take whatever it might be. If it wasn't even just for interest sake, even though we know it's bad for us, even though we will tell our kids I'm sure even non Muslim people will say, you know, kids can go go
have a bucket of never drank alcohol even before Islam. Why? Because he says, as a young child, I saw a man, you know, completely drunk out of his mind. And he was on the floor lying. And he's and there was like, camel dung next to him. And he took from this camel dung, and he was about to put in his mouth and he smelt it. So he took it away. And then after two, three minutes again, he wants to eat it. This is what the hammer does to your mind. This is a common industrial mind. And as a young boy, he said this, I will never allow my mind to get like this.
I also was not a sign of the word hammer. What does comedy mean?
I mean wine.
And this is important. Now in today's day and age people say you know this cannabis thing.
Cannabis or people think comedy is haram but didn't say anything about smoking. You know, that's a week we all know, you know, stupid arguments, but we should discuss this what is common,
linguistically common? Where is it come from?
Cisco is the thing that you in your head, Allah mentioned, the Quran is this Kumar, your female audio head covering the thing that covers you hit. So Allah called common hammer, it's called common because it covers your head, what does it mean? It takes away your, your senses. So anything that removes your senses is common. Anything that takes away your senses is common, whether you smoke or drink, it's shoot it, sniff it, whatever it might be.
The only thing that can take your senses away, maybe your wife, your husband, you see that that's within moderation is permissible. But otherwise, anything that does his homework, it takes away your mind. So what could never drank alcohol, even in his life, and as a young person growing up in Makkah, there was a friendship between the prophets of Salaam and avocado. And this shows you again, that good people seek each other out, they were not from the same sub tribe of crush, you know, they will love the mucker as they naturally looked, and they found each other as really close friends. As they saw this, each other's good qualities and the good traits of a worker of the alarm. You know,
as we know, he became wealthy in terms of being a very wise trader, he was the buying and selling. So he was middle class to upper middle class in terms of in terms of his wealth in terms of his, his money, and that's who he was, you know, before we became before Islam came, so when Islam appeared with the Prophet became a Navy, when he became an officer. We know the first person outside of his immediate family,
or the first person he went to outside of the show is a lot naturally you will tell your wife, your kids, so who are those who first embrace Islam?
I see it across who was the very first person before Islam, Khadija, and perhaps the second person is one
who's one of our
hottest cousin, who was a priest. So she said, I, you know, my, my uncle, cousin, uncle was a learned man, and he didn't worship idols, but he was old man. So she said, Can we speak to my uncle? Cuz he had heard this from him. And so when I heard the story, he said, this is the news. This thing that came to you in the cave is the same thing that came to Gambia for you to Prophet and he says, I wish I would become a monk. I wish I was still a young man. I've been searching my life for this.
So while of course, perhaps the second or the first man the second person of the Legion, but okay, he passed away. So we don't know anything beyond what, who else embraced Islam in the very first day or two.
So just before abubaker, the people inside the house of of Salaam Ali and Zaid, right, these two young men, the daughters were so young, Ali and Zane, and then when he left his house, and now he screeching outside of his immediate family, the first person he goes to is abubaker of the lung. And he embraced Islam without hesitation about invasion without hesitation, beautiful Hadith
and shows you that these are just made of a boxer and say no one had an argument and during that arguments abubaker actually said a curse word naughty word. Unless you see something folder and immediately need to get it immediately. So you don't want give me money. Give me money. Give me money. Make me money. I'm not gonna give you my for this. No, no, no, no, no mouth, no mouth between us. Right. So I'm Baccarat. The owner runs the Mises. Heidi, he's, you know,
he runs to the masjid. And you can see on blockers faces a bit upset is a bit disturbed. And so the profits that I'm seeing is is your Sahib is just being in an altercation. What's up? So then I'm working cs yaroslava
So, I was in argument with Omar and I was, you know, I went overboard, but now I'm asking Him to forgive me and he doesn't want to forgive me. Omar doesn't want to, doesn't want to forgive me. So the prophets of Salaam got very upset. And he basically said, you know, you could see the prophets faces now changed. So he says to you, all is forgiven, you all is forgiven, you're forgiven, you know, when it comes into the motion, and the problem is more obstacle. And I'm looking at gates up on his hands, and he says, No, no, I made the I was the one that
he I'm the bad guy, and the prophecies to the Sahaba. Remember, that when, when I call this message, no one accepted without hesitation before the work, he was the first.
And no one's wealth was invested more in Islam than abubaker.
So don't ever come between me and my side, my sahadi
don't come between me and my companion, me and abubaker don't even look to come between us. So if we knew we had a problem with the officer, or this this bond between you guys, so don't put yourself in a position because of what he had done at work or the one.
Know, most of these titles are civic, this is the one that we all know, what does it mean?
It's not really truthful, not the one that tells you to?
Not Oh, no, that's wrong. I mean, it's trustworthy. And that's the name of the process. I mean, a solid, a solid is the one who tells the truth. A C, D is the one who was to basically use this. They were true to his covenant to to his word, he actually stood firm. And this is the highest category to be a cynic is the highest category of person after the name of the MBR. What proof do I have that?
We decide that every time the person passes away?
I'll make them mean as men have been
taken assured of solid intimacy when a person passes away? And may this be the case for all of us. I mean, these are all law. This isn't in the Quran, let us be amongst the Navy in the profits, the number one naval base with the highest caliber of person is enemy, or CD. The CD key in the siliques, was Shahada, those who died who bet martyrs, sorry, and the good people, those who saw there. So from this, we see it's a category of preference, the highest category that we know people, of course, we can never reach the category of ambia can even be the highest category that we hope will grant all of us to be in that category is the category of Siddique, the category of C, D. And
this is the man who the problems are salam, the Sahaba segnale, everyone could acidic VC deep, the number one study that have been all the cDk of the universe abroad. Akiyama he's number one. So in reality, this is the greatest man after the profits after the MBA.
This is the number one men and how did he get that name acidic?
Not the one, the one who was truthful to his man basically the one who was a man was true to what true?
How do we
how we need to give up a bottle that title?
okay, so, so
suffice mentioning is a hadith that mentions where the Prophet Solomon says was on the mountain, with the prophesy lamb was Abu Bakar an omen with man three, the three of them one on Mount Olympus, and it began to shake. And so the prophecies to work this hurry this bahaya machinima
this is to say relax, become because anew is an obese and the cdQ and to share needs to people will die as martyrs and will come to know that say no more is a North Mark both directions, they will mark that they will kill ibaka died natural natural death. But this is how he got the name of Sydney When did he get the name of civic should know this.
in Surat, Mirage we know that that's when he got the title acidic on the ISR on the mirage. So a workaround is a sensible man. He's a logical man, he's an intelligent man and the people of Qureshi knew he's an intelligent man. And when they saw he embraced Islam, of course, it was like difficult when you see good people when scum follows him. But you see a logical man is following the process of them so they tried a lot to get into the Islam. So when the Pope was performed, or was taken on the salami Raj went from Morocco to Palestine from Palestine up to meet a lot above the seventh heaven. And when he was brought down all in one night, when the Prophet solemn began mentioning this
to this just happened to me last night, and the
Russia debating with him and quizzing him. So one of those people, you know, lift, lift the problem and he came to America. And he says abubaker like, now, this profit of us in inverted commas has gone too far. And he said something, which even you must admit is crazy. Now, even you must admit this is nonsense, rubbish. What did he say? So the man said, Mohammed says a lot. And of course, even Cisco Salah. He said, Mohammed says he was taken from Makkah to Palestine, and back to Makkah in one night. Surely now, you must believe you also agree that this is this is craziness madness. So what did he did he really say that? So he said, Yes. He said that it is true. If the problem was he
needed a visa to the processor and speak to you about that. He said, If he came from his mouth, then it must be true. So how can you believe us? It takes us a month to go a month to come back. Of course, today we know if someone told you I went to Palestine from Cape Town to Palestine, and back in one day was the Silva. I can do that. How easy is that? Today? We know what the plane it's possible. Right? At that time, it seemed like it's impossible. He never happened. So what are the systems man? Do you not know that I believe in something more fantastic than that? I believe that God Almighty speaks to him. So for me to believe he went from A to B is not that small. also shows
he understands what he's saying he understands the the essence of Islam. And that's when he got acidic. So he says, I will believe in that. If that's what he said, I believe no questions asked. And that kind of Eman And in fact, when the prophecy spoke about this around the Mirage, even those words, embrace Islam,
some reservations, so probably say you Sahaba all of you had a little bit of doubt me all of you. At some point, you're
shaky, but I mean, we just human. You know, there's some something lingering with and what could never had that. That's why it's acidic. That's why easily man, it's on a different level. And so how about understood that they understood that a broker has a level which is called the reach that he's got that thing he's got his way of the of the honors of Baccarat has, in so many is that he's the only person in the Quran which Allah confirms the Sahaba.
Allah confirms he's a companion.
What evidence is next?
We know that when the provinces are lumped with the persecution became too much. And Allah had permitted that you can leave to to Medina, some worker began to cry. And he said, Please, if we go with you, I want to perform the job with you. Leave my family, these families, these young daughters, and this beautiful side, Nadia, I she's still a young girl, and she saw her dad crying. Right? And she said, that's the first time in my life, I realize you can actually cry out of happiness. As a child, you always think tears of sadness. When she saw her dad was so happy, he was crying. And he got up I'm gonna go with him.
I should see this the first time I realized you can actually try to happiness well, so my dad crying because he got to go with the manager. So we know the story. abubaker repeat the animals and his family was the one that helped them, you know, a smile came and let's see if they were in the cave. And when the Qureshi was about to when they just came outside the cave and abakus it, yeah, they just looked down, they will see us. So Allah mentioned in the Quran, that when he said to his Sahaba, when to when the Prophet said to his heart when it's a hobby, when the Prophet said to his companion, that as an Don't feel sad, Allah is with us always with us, Allah will see to us the
Prophet use the word Sahabi. Allah use the word of the Quran to his Sahabi no one else is mentioned as a hobby in the Quran except abubaker. Except abubaker. Raja lon.
A worker as we know also,
of his honorable mentions, he performed the heater of woods in a peaceful Salaam, he was in every single battle, there was not a single battle that you can find. Now this is the reason why this is also when you ask about the Sahaba all of them Allah says about the alignment that unless pleased with all of them, a law majors in the 70s but there are certain tick boxes that put you on like your resume. One of them is that you embrace Islam early. He was one of the first in places that you embrace Islam as a Mahajan. Those in Makkah went through the persecution of course he went through whatever you might think he was the only one to make each other within it so seldom that you would
have been like we know that people have better have a degree above those who wanted that when they mentioned someone's honor the prestigious he was a buddy. He was a budget of all the 1000 Sahaba 1000s of them, only 330 likes to go to buy the special honor for him. Albuquerque was we know he was at By the way, another
To your neighbors if you get the vehicle in one what's the third one? the pledge of the pledge of in one
we know that the prophets of Salaam when you made an agreement when you went to perform Morocco maka, maka was still controlled by the Quran. And the Quran didn't want to allow them into the stock outside Mecca didn't get the visa to enter Makkah and they thought that such a thing that was man was sent inside go and investigate and see how things are going and with man so his job is just to go inside Makkah as an ambassador
Mukherjee here the correlation controlling the Muslims in Iran not coming to fight No, we're not really yet we know how long you know we want to make Iran and they start outside so with mine they seem to you go inside the visa sometimes when you go inside the earth man you make go in negotiate with him. See if we can come into Makkah with mine gets delayed. Why does it get delayed? His family keeps him busy. People come so he gets delayed to the point where the Sahaba begin to think wow, they must have killed with money. Right? This guy's easy. How long is coming? It's just an investment. We just want to talk to us. You mean this a family member his whole family killed him.
So now the mood in the Muslim camp changes. Look, these guys are serious. They're they're gonna fight. We didn't come to fight, but in the process of them sitting under the tree. So the Sahaba come by to him one by one and take his hand 100,000 of them. And they say like basically if it comes to fighting, we didn't come for a bathroom not prepared but if it comes to fighting with you to the end, and they take his hand, one by one. And then Allah Subhana Allah revealed verses in the Quran that says that Allah was let's see what comes to love the longest will look where do we get the stuff but Allah be pleased with him. Where do we get this? For everyone else who say I'm a llama
Allah have mercy on him, remember holding on.
But for the Sahaba we say about the Allah and why? Because Allah mentioned in the Quran, that Allah Allah, that Allah was pleased with him.
That's another verse, but this is what Allah said, I am well pleased with those Sahaba that took your hand. In fact, they took my hand My hand was about they took the pleasure of Allah and Allah testifies what was in their heart in this ayah so if you were they were in the hot seat, I confirm that those 1000 that was with you, I testify to the man in the hot water was D. So you begin to tick the boxes.
Also, as we mentioned, closer to the the death of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the prophet peace be upon him, had conquered Makkah Al Hamdulillah without any fighting. And he concluded in the ninth year of
the ninth year, nine years of the Ichiro mocker was conquered.
There was a hedge, like every year there's a hedge, and we know that the chorus used to be even before Islam. This is from Libra Houston. So the time came for hedge and the proxim didn't go on hedge that year. He went the following year the team just before he died, like we said last week, a few months before he passed away that's a great hedge today I have completed your religion for you know Arabs mated in another era all that happened The following year, but there was a hunch now now that this market is open there needs to be a hedge. The problem didn't go on hedge. So as a side note you
can you delay the hedge if you are older but you are ready financially physically, everything is ready. Is it haram for you to delay the Hajj
haram for you to postpone it
as soon as
you wake up
so you're credited
and if you financially able no nothing holding you physically strong you can go but he's I don't want to go I'd rather go next year. Are you sinful? If you do that is how long
is it? How long to delay the hatch without any reason? There's a question.
Without you have no excuse.
You just don't want to go this year is wrong for you? Do you get punished for that?
maintain you get punished.
So you say mean to the analysis. Obviously when Islam talks about the bar, the Minister cause I say the SP bar is physical is the bar unless you are mentally insane. Oh, you're sick mentally. You just don't smart. Let's put it that way.
I just don't this watch now. Next year. He says heroin.
yes. And if you don't, but I'm saying you don't have to die. Yes. I'm delaying for next year. Is he gonna be punished for delay? So he can so 2019 is military with everything so sorted already, but this is you know what, so I will go 2020 and he goes
2020 for that one year, it's all gonna punish him.
So, so there's Heidi that says you must go as soon as you can. And of course, if you die and you were able to and you didn't go, then you're going to be punished. When you there is a serious hobby, the one was able to go for Hajj, there's this one to the side. And for those of us who haven't gone in the Hadith says that if a person dies, not performing hajj and has no legitimate excuse, then you might as well die the Christian Are you serious stuff? So it's like your Salah. Yes, you should perform it as soon as you can. But if he deleted what is said in the walk, you still got it, then Okay, he's not punished for that, but he missed out the Solomonic and forgot that he missed out.
Then he missed out on the full reward. So and the evidence for this is the prophets of Salaam and I gave the answer to you, then at least also lamb could have performed hygiene and Nivea, but he didn't he delayed till the 10th year. Why not? Because he didn't feel like it. There was a reason and this is the other side that says it's compulsory, you must go immediately. They say the reason the president didn't go was because at that year, at that year also, the hygiene was still allowed non Muslims were still allowed to come for Hajj. So you found people coming with the idols and also they used to make Hydra naked some of them we know in the Quran that also the one of the things that
the Korea did to cheat the judge, they would say if you come to hajia
your clothing was from haram money. You need to buy Makkah clothing, haram clothing and so some people's work on afford to buy new clothes
and people who might make it because they
miss it. Allah says this and then Allah mentioned the Quran. Allah Neva encourages Masha, Allah never ever promotes lewdness samina Qureshi as a business transaction. So people are naked people are bringing the idols, then a visa Salam didn't want to perform Hajj with him. So he said I'll perform in the following year, I will delay when only Muslims are allowed to Hajj. But
in this whole story,
the prophet some Muslims wait to perform Hajj. And so the Prophet Allah made abubaker that I mean, you go and you in charge, you are the motto and you go and you are going to be the amine of the Hajj party, you go into a charge. So it shows you again. This is a very important job, the very first hygene Islam abubaker was in charge of that Hajj. And as you know, brother mentioned here that when the prophets of Salaam was too ill to perform Salah.
He insisted abubaker beautifulness Allah abubaker you will perform the Salah, even Ayesha lusatia iwakura daughter, and her son was a daughter and they both was going to be similar. They both trying to pressurize them.
Also, pressurizing not my dad, I don't want my dad to leave the Sala late amargo he's a strong man is a strong voice. People are going to get annoyed with him. So the prophets of Salaam said we will not accept except from abubaker he heard one narration of violence, the intensity of this but he heard say no when I started the Salah, and then the promises of says stop. Stop the Salah only Omer only aboubaker homosassa only abubaker mas Lita Sala and that's a really powerful statement for the purpose of Allah to give aboubaker we honor and we say not only that, that when abubaker was leading the salah and then Ibiza Salam wanted to stand come in, he was prepared to stand behind the abubaker
you was prepared to do so you need our stand behind you. This never ever happen. Only one example because some slip behind somebody because of officers who came late was on a battle when he came late. And the Salah had started and the pasilla just fell in line. But this is the first this this when the brothers actually Willie needs to be a worker. And then a worker of course refused. He stepped back shows you the arm the position of a worker Siddiq, Roger long, so many things that he did. He's money as he's money, no person's money, benefits Islam more than him. Oh my god on foot, you know, to show mighty man attack why he brought half of his wealth to the problem and almost felt
maybe now I've reached the Grail only to find out that America had given all of his wealth, all of his wealth and when the property What have you lived through for your family? I can do everything you can in your bank account what your family so what are the ones that I have left them aligned social, and profit never accepted 100% of this many hobbies when people came into and as they are dying, they say I want to give all my mouth and charity. No, don't give that. It's basically that you give your family money. And that's also a charity in fact to give your family you're gonna get but from the work that he accepted that he accepted that when you spoke about the dose of Jenna
This video is for the one who fasts, the Yang. This is the door for the one who give charity for Salah. So that's for your bucket, you will be asked to enter in any of the eight doors you choose kiama because every act of worship, you have excelled in them, you have excelled in that just to make you understand when you purchase a slave, you fill your slave.
Part of the reward is you get the freedom from them, and you could benefit from the life that they do as free people the good things they do amongst the people that have a bucket purchases be that that same Bilaal that everyone loves and knows I mean I was commissary what's the split I'll get a bucket is the one that bought him
and he was free everything so in our bucket scale is going to be beloved movies with these animals. This is what the Baccarat is we know that beautiful story when Maria was beating para para, you know, missing him up completely. So a worker comes to me and says how much for this man? How much do you want for pillar? So my name the ridiculous price
sabaki means up negotiations to deal deal. So we have two demons, negotiate with me, you know you start to hire a mechanic a businessman you know, I start high you start low, we meet in the middle. And I you know if you actually offered me 10% of that money 100 k are sold into you. Because he's not even after I've beaten him up like this, he's not even worth 10% of that price. So because even if you offered us 10 times that price out of that, because he's worth to me that that's how much he's worth to me. Right? So this is who this man is acidic of the line is reasonable, you begin to see he's It is amazing to see. And he's not only the Muslims that understood this, even the non Jews
understood in the chain of command where he was at the end of the battle of God. We know that there was some confusion, then a visa may have been killed. There was some CITABRIA died, something to know some have some Sahaba Bheeshma died, and they just like lifted weapons that has nothing left to live in Estonia anymore. Even Abu sufian wasn't sure. So the Muslims ran up Mount COVID. And they were hiding. So Abu sufian. And if you don't know if you want to know what all these things, you see it all you need to go back to the seal. So Abu sufian says, I want to know, is Muhammad still amongst you? Is he still alive? I want to know if he stayed or not knowing the purpose of the least
one. And then he said I want to know if even I'll be kochava is Apple buttons for the life. No one responded. And he's almost dead alive. So even if he had understood who was the leadership of the Muslims, who is number two and number three, the chain of command, right? Even the non Muslims knew, knew who these people were. So I bought a CD from the one we get back after the difficulty so seldom,
and that they have confusion. We he died in the house of of his daughter, the house of Russia.
And he of course being part of the senior leadership. They were these questions about what to do what to do next. Because very soon, lots of decisions have to be made about building the
Mississauga, we sit an army of Oussama Providence in an army out. And that army now heard that the proximate died and so they stopped and they came back.
And soon reports are going to come in. When the promiseland passed away all of Arabia, the Arabian Peninsula, that is today Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, Oman, so that all Jazeera Peninsula, all of it embraced Islam was not not embraced Islam was under the authority of Islam. Islam was now the government and it's the first time by the way in the history of mankind, that any person had had unified all of the Arab lands under one leadership that was the first man to do this. So Marina was a central government now. And soon the news are gonna come around of people mess, a word that people rejecting Islam, tribes, not paying the soccer tribes about to invade Medina. So while we will said
we see ourselves as a hub, our last episode, how sad they were the difficult decisions need to be made. Leadership needs to come decisions of peace, someone has to take charge of the situation. And let's we say debacle of Iran would become as we see the elected now. And just maybe to highlight for the next episode, or the next lecture.
Whenever working with you on became the halifa. We said that it happened at this meeting of suceava.
And that's where a lot of controversy arises between us and the Shia, Sunni Shia, just look this course and she hasn't. But the Shia have a different view to us. And they mentioned that the Sahaba by electing abubaker was incorrect. Let's put it this much harsher words they use. And they say that the Prophet saddam had designated and elected he already had elected a successor, which was a nun and Sahaba knowingly rejected this. We need to know
Get that claim and then discuss that in our class. So we see the how when the professor that I passed away, the people of Medina the answer, they had a meeting at a place called suceava. Also the only one Omaha during that meeting, this was just amongst themselves. And they were about to elect a leader.
And the Nita was, as we said, his name is Syed, even. And I want my class to start learning the names on this.
So all the Sahaba that you've come to know abubaker and Omar, Osman Ali, Bilal Khan, Jose all of them, or I shall have sir, they are all from Makkah. And we know that the people of Makkah are more senior, they have higher status than the people of Medina.
But if we ask who was the abubaker in terms of not piety, but rather in terms of leadership, who were the leaders of Medina, who was the beat Buddhists of Medina,
these two names you must two sides, they both the Navy side, side and side, there were two tribes, one decided what side even was inside even side
side in one and solubilizer. right sided while when he died, he was a Sahabi with the ultra low shook when he died. Remember that when he died, the prophecy that thrown about worship and also hobby, and you end up on that title, so let's set him off. And he was actually slightly higher and more senior in that side. So now inside what I've died, the other side is seen as the natural successor of all of Medina. Ansari will Rue Medina, and we said he was on the verge of being elected as halifa when Omar Abu Abu Bakr and Omar and Abu Zubaydah they gatecrash this meeting, the cashflow meeting. And in this discussion, abubaker was the one that actually spoke.
and this is from the perspective say normal saying that every point I wanted to make a bucket seat but better, he had a way in a walker was eloquent. Because as a side note here, once as a beautiful story, I'll take swift time, that if you follow my series, the women around the mission you're supposed to write, the wives of the Prophet SAW Selim became frustrated that I shall receive the gifts not going to be so solid, but people would naturally you know, you make a beautiful sisters that you want to give them something you know, give something up so seldom, they would always give it when he was at his house
wasn't at least didn't give a goodbye and say give it to it. But he was when he was at the house. They felt that look, he was in a they just felt that he was in a good mood, whatever. And out of their own. They would bring these brackets and gifts when she was there. So she got to benefit from that. So they otherwise felt we need to fix this. Someone needs to tell the professor learn to tell Sahaba let them bring the gifts when you are at our house also not that I should mention I didn't like that. Yeah, Gemma can shimmy. Listen, when you give me a Baraka shape, equally
panela. And they went one by one first, they said who's gonna do this? I said it's simple Santa Monica, she's like, she was seen as more diplomatic and senior, and the professor Lama would listen to her. She was really wise. And she spoke and she says her name, she raised the issue about some didn't respond to ecfe. She waited again next week. Hutton can speak to you. She mentioned this issue of I didn't respond to her three weeks go by. And then the professor says to her, don't put me like in a position with Ayesha don't upset me on this, you know, don't raise this issue. So that immediately when Salama had this diplomatic way, she says, I seek refuge. Hello. So I want to raise
this issue again. When she went back to the portable lives they said, What did he say? And every time she says he didn't say anything, does he go back, go back, go back. So when she says, He said like, don't put me in a position with me and Russia. And I don't want to raise this issue again. So you're useless man. So then they said, let's say Fatima, the daughter, you go tell your dad, that he put pressure on him to put pressure on the Sahaba. And I shall I shall tell us the story. I says I was he was with me in the house. We're like sitting together and Fatima comes in. And
any as she as I just no one resembled the promise for lamb more than Fatima from the way she walks the way she speaks. She is involved in perfectly and she's in her 30s. He's in his 60s. And he gets up and he wants to put her in a city with my daughter. So then Fatima. Now, Romana says, I've come to speak to you about Ayesha, your wives want you to be fair, as with a daughter Walker, and I shall see I'm sitting there and she's saying this, you know? And then the Prophet says to Ayesha, Fatima. Don't you love I love. I love this one. So you love this one because I love love. Love Fatima. See if that's the case in high level, and she goes back to the wives sees the story. And the wife says
he also useless and insane up in the jack Xena was very fiery and very loud and she didn't she didn't take nonsense.
No one, she goes, I will go. And she doesn't wait for the prophet to come to come to her house to speak to her. She goes and knocks on iTunes, do you what I'm going to say to you in front of Russia? And then she began saying things. And in fact, she actually said things to Russia. She became aggressive. And I said, I was looking at the person. He said, I want permission to respond to fight back. I'm waiting for you waiting for him until he gave me the green light. Okay, she crossed the line. So then I should say, so I gave it to Cena. And I sent it to her in such a way that Xena was quiet, she couldn't say anything.
And then this is the whole this long story to abubaker What's so hard is Linda Parker, when she was done when I share my quiet prophecies to Ayesha, you earlier who really you have a daughter, because abubaker was really eloquent really good. When you put him on the spot. You can give a speech, and you argue with him. He was he was good at presenting and all human you couldn't beat him in argumentation. So that is why in this meeting with unsolved high teen situation, a situation that is going to determine the fate of the online every time you know, you're stupid to want to get involved.
Quite a murder stop every time a bucket pulls down. And then overseas, Obama gave a speech. And he mentioned every point I wanted to give just
reminded the answer, as I said last week, that he agreed with him of the honor and the prestige and the status. And he agreed with him of all the good that they had done and how Islam had been strengthened, killed in the city of Medina is basically that Islam is beyond Medina. Islam is not a religion of Medina, it's a universal religion. And the leadership of the Oman goes beyond just unsought. And at the Prophet Solomon, the answer knew this, that the custodians of in reality, one of the one of the one of the themes that allowed bless the kurush is the leadership of the oma, they get priority. If you have to choose purely on time, there's a number of things you look at, you
don't just look at that, you look at a number of things, if we're to look at which time has the strongest claim to leadership, it is the kurush. And so the profits, so then abubaker said, Let it be a coalition for all of us. And then he says, choose so much choosing many middle halifa, all of the live in that.
Rather, Abbe de nada, choose Abu Zubaydah. And so the number of Of course, stood up, he says, I will never ever be a leader of a people, we have a bucket as a citizen, goes, he laid the Salah, and all these things. He's the most senior of all of us, I can't be his leader. And so this argument with a bit and then say almost is it became a teens. So I grabbed his hand abubaker hand and I please be seated, give me your hand. And I hope for us halifa I can reach where you're starting from, and I will do the same. And obviously there was some inside is also felt the same way and this and so one by one, when when the room began to shift in the swap bucket. Now taking you know, others also began
to give the pledge.
They will there was controversy around this. There was question marks this a lot of people want the peace. No Sonali. There is no man, there is no Billa. There's a lot of big names in this meeting. So it's sort of like we have an AGM five meters get together and have our AGM and harassed isolate the chairman and the chief people.
Right? You would think swung or what what naturally? Would you say? How is this election? Free, like free and fair? So the was can these gonna be some negative angles we're talking about? They were those who wanted to be halifa. And they were those who felt that they shouldn't be the halifa we have the qualities. So they will also have a will aggrieved. And we'll talk about that next week. Amongst them is, of course it was it
was so sad. He naturally felt that look, I should do the halifa. And he was legitimately so he said, Look, Medina is our city. I'm in charge of the people, the people of Medina lifted me I posted, right, so he obviously had his his his grievances. This is not a protest in terms of personality. He's not saying Obama is a bad guy.
saying that this method is open the number two scenario. Of course, we know there were some grievances. Yeah, we need to talk about that. He genuinely was flat. No sooner we admit that they were certain. So now he's gonna raise his concern. Then of course, there is a third claim and this is from the shiocton was able to discuss this, they will say and put it like this. The Sahaba elected a leader? Yes. From what I'm saying to you, they elected the leader, as he thought there was no guidance on that matter. Now, they'll say, Does it make sense to you that all the prophecies I've taught you how to distinguish are in the toilet, but he didn't tell you who should be the leader
Does it make sense that you wouldn't stipulate the successor even the most basic, you know, companies, they have a succession plan. Professor Lam knew he was gonna pass away. He was preparing the Sahaba Who is this V really not leave a successor. In fact,
the Shia perspective they will say
Your own books of Hadith you find that he appointed a successor in your book. So how do you not have do not have a hadith that he gave to three? a month or two before he died before going to be passed away? Did he not say what it was Mola Ava's takes me as his friend and confident leader with Allah is his friend and confidant and leader, whoever loves me should love Ali. Ali hates me did not say that. What she
just said that is not clear that he selected a successor was that not the the inauguration of Satan it? Why do you reject that? So we need to raise these questions and we'll need to answer them inshallah. next session, any questions?
So the question is, what about today? Would you choose a halifa in July, love to see a day when that happens. Choose a coalition leader. I don't the term of prejudice. If they are they all be the obviously the people that trace the lineage back to the garage. In fact, the r&b soul family problem, legitimate unabated still alive. We know for example, the people that keep the key of the calibre, the family still today in the property that made it this family will keep the tokuyama the family will always have that honor. So they obviously trace back to crush, crush crush is not the only criteria for being the leader and long before the Muslim Ummah, had, you know, when we had
coniferous Ottoman Empire Turkish, and before then even, we didn't have Qureshi a people eligible to be believers. So the whole issue of halifa from a listener perspective, when we discuss this in detail, what we're going to conclude is that clearly the professor Lim had lived this as a matter of he had almost democratic the problem had not selected a successor. He did not make it hereditary, but he gave certain guides that actually came out of the masjid.
There are certain things you look for pa Croatia is a is a is a is a tick to your name, being
you know, being from the Navy, so stick to your name. But there are other things to consider as well leave seniority ability, we sometimes we forget. It's also a logical thing when you select someone, knowledge means ability, you look at all those things, and you look for leadership. So when we conclude on this issue, I first have to go through the discussion, you find that it is a matter of HDR, that it's a process that you do and that's why every single one of the protocol Rashidi, they were not the sons of the next one. Omar is someone else, not aboubaker son.
Man, we can know halifa different way he became the Hollywood we say Dolly became the Hollywood different method for different methods for the way in which Holly was until of course, it became a kinship dynasty. And it became hereditary. And then things changed. And it's upon my love of listen to the point where we don't even have a funny for a very strange time in history. This is the first time in 100 years that this woman doesn't have a halifa no leadership, but at least one of the signs of the of the our proficiencies towards an end of time will come and things will become very difficult between groups and factions. And so
Plato tells the Hadith he asked me what should I do when I live in a time like that if I were to live with this, this group or that group and this one is fighting that one, what do I do?
Stick to the leader of the of the Muslim Ummah and the Gema stick to the leader and the jemar so you see what it is no leader, no drama, no unity, no drama, no leader supposed to sit, they stick to what I am. So hop on stick to be alone Even if you leave all these groups and be on metal even if you need to be alone, right even if your main love Don't involve yourself in all these debates or time will come when there's no drama, no consensus, and no leader we living in that time. So we stick stay away from all these the fitness and we just do what is best continue shala if we
