00:00:24--> 00:00:25


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


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

so inshallah let's without further ado let's start our class for this evening and

00:00:38--> 00:00:41

this is fine this

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

is the screen visible the slides

00:00:56--> 00:01:00

she because she can escape now

00:01:02--> 00:01:05

yes, thanks okay

00:01:06--> 00:01:07


00:01:10--> 00:01:34

okay so inshallah to begin with the questions for the Hafsa send an email just earlier asking about why is the the women assertive Salah silent and the mother Fudger really shy, Audible, the Salah in the day are silent a lot Salas at night, or audible Allah and I'm one of those questions that is no real answer is no Quran ayah that explains why and why

00:01:36--> 00:02:16

you know, Hadith that speaks about some things, there are certain rules, we will talk about this, which I think it will link up later on with a certain prohibitions or certain commandments in the Sharia. Sometimes they are very clear why the wisdom behind it is clear. We know for example, why comedy is impermissible. Why gambling is impermissible, it becomes quite clear. Some other things might not be clear, why SmarTrip three, and all the other silos are even to word for multiplicity is the reason for that. And some of these things we have than the understanding of it and other things we don't What does any flamming mean? So there are certain things which is hasn't been specified,

00:02:16--> 00:02:25

but we believe there is a wisdom behind it. And different scholars and we are allowed to theorize we are able to, you know, suggest things. Scholars have said that, you know,

00:02:26--> 00:02:51

salah is in the past week, it was in the evening, and you couldn't see the word lights electricity. So I don't know if anyone's ever been in a town or a village where there's absolutely no electricity. I mean, we've all experienced it. loadshedding I mean, how dark is it at night when it's no charity? And so imagine you come into a masjid and it's pitch black. And so obviously when you your dissertation at night, it lets you know someone's performing salah.

00:02:52--> 00:02:58

And so that is perhaps Perhaps that's one of the reasons I want those based ultimately, Allah knows all the notes based

00:02:59--> 00:03:05

the system also asking you the site a little bit loud during the day. So that Salah in the word and answer,

00:03:06--> 00:03:11

you can recite as in the formal whisper, it's fine. So you can

00:03:13--> 00:03:25

that's fine. That's okay. That's not a problem. It doesn't have to be you have to enunciate the words in any case. Okay, inshallah we continue with our class. So we spoke about a

00:03:28--> 00:03:34

lot. Yes. Last week, we spoke about the beginning, we entered into the discussion that are fixed in Islamic law or Islamic

00:03:35--> 00:04:12

the rules and regulations of Islam. And this almost follows from if you think about logically how it goes, a person says, I'm a Muslim, I want to be a Muslim. I mean, I've embraced Islam, what do I do? And automatically everyone rushed to him and her and hug them. And then we're also giving them advice. Say, you know, you must eat the right hand, you must enter the toilet to the left foot. You must stingier you must circumcised if you're a lady, you must wear hijab, you you must, you must say subhanallah, 33 times of the Salah, and you think we do so it becomes overwhelming. You know, the amount of lists of do's and don'ts in Islam is so much if we sit older and older and older, what are

00:04:12--> 00:04:39

the priority things that I need to do? I'm starting from scratch what you know what is absolutely essential for me as a Muslim to do we sacrifice there are certain rituals which you need to do and if you don't do them, then it puts you Islam at risk, you know, to remain an active member of the Muslim community, there are certain minimum requirements and those minimum requirements are the five pillars of Islam. And then there are certain major sins which you need to avoid. So, there are

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

compulsory rituals that you must do and there are major sins which you must avoid and in fact, one may even say that even if you did the major sins, He does not nullify your Islam, but if you do not do the major rituals or Islam, then once Islam becomes into question, so example a person

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

does not go to gym or for any without any excuse. He just doesn't go to gym, it doesn't perform salah, this person. There is a question mark if he or she, oh, he Oh, he did not cheat, if he is a Muslim, you know if they if they completely do not perform Jamar at all, they don't fasting Ramadan. But if they drink alcohol, they come with Xena, major sun, but they still are Muslim. Okay? And so that is why when we ask what do I need to do to remain to keep my, my status as a Muslim intact, we will always begin with the pillars of Islam you need to do the pillars of Islam correctly. And if you look at any Islamic book, it starts with believing in Allah and all of that. And then we started

00:05:38--> 00:06:13

going straight into the rituals of living as a Muslim the pillars of Islam. So our objective now is to teach you the pillars of Islam. The first pillar is very easy. You just need to make a declaration that you believe that there is none worthy of worship says Allah shall do it. I testify that La Ilaha illa Allah there is no deity none worthy of worship besides Allah wa shadow and I testify that Muhammad Rasool Allah Akbar, the oversoul, that Muhammad peace be upon him is the slit servants slave and the Messenger of Allah and the final messenger of Allah. So that's the first pillar done and dusted, you've done it Alhamdulillah we all die with the Kalama on our tongues. The

00:06:13--> 00:06:55

next pillar and it's it is in order of priority. The next pillar that one is required to do is, of course, the salah. And before I jumped into teaching us how to perform salah. I wanted to take a bit of a detour, which was a little higher grade and it's around the introduction of Islamic science, Islamic law, where do we who decides what the rituals and who decides the do's and don'ts and we explain that it comes from the Quran and the Sunnah we explained last time the Quran obviously. And in the Sunnah, we said this is a bit more complicated. The Sunnah is the the life, the tradition, the teachings, all the lessons, all the commandments, or the prohibitions, or the actions of the

00:06:55--> 00:07:30

abuse of Salam, you know, compiled in one place, and we as we said, this is a little complicated, that the Quran is compiled very clearly in a book nice there is no you don't have to search for the Quran. You don't have to look around. We don't have multiple versions of the Quran as other religions do. We have only one version, so it's really really nice and clear the Quran on one side, now you'll say okay, we'll go through the Quran and from the Quran. We'll take all the laws pertaining to Salah and we'll learn how to make Salah from the Quran. Now bring me the Sunnah and I will look through the Sunnah and take the lows from the witch to bring you the Sunnah is not so

00:07:30--> 00:07:35

easy. The Sunnah, we said is is compiled in a

00:07:36--> 00:07:37

in a

00:07:38--> 00:08:15

in his compiled of many, many little Hadith, a hadith so many pieces or little puzzles together makes the Sunnah these puzzles are called Hadith. Or if you want to know what to do in English version of Hadith, traditions, sayings of the NABI Salam, many of the sayings of the Prophet peace upon him of his life, little snapshots we call those snapshots of the life of the prophet Prophet peace be upon him, are compiled and they've been collected. And there are a number of books that have collected it. So we need to actually go through all these books to ascertain the Sunnah of the Navi Salam. Now,

00:08:16--> 00:08:56

the next natural question and for any person who's embraced Islam, in fact, any Muslim any person, they should ask, okay, no problem. I already believe the Quran is from Allah. So if Allah tells me to do something, I accept it, no problem I've accepted. And I've accepted that whatever the Prophet peace upon him tells me to do, I will do it. But how do I know that what you are giving me now as the Quran? Is the original Quran from Allah? How do I know that? And more risky or even more relevant? How do I know all these books of Hadith that you brought me? Then at least we really say that. If I go in those books, you find many, many 1000s of Hadith, then I will say all of it, how

00:08:56--> 00:09:13

can I be sure? When were these books written? Who wrote these books? Did these people record them at the salon? Do they have a video of him? Did he sign that he said it? No. So how do we know that it's authentically narrated from the Prophet peace upon him? Is everybody with me in terms of where we are in our discussion?

00:09:15--> 00:09:17

Are you guys with me? Any questions so far?

00:09:22--> 00:09:32

I think it's very important that you guys understand where we are in the context of a discussion. Since the Halima does this, does this make sense? What I'm saying

00:09:37--> 00:09:41

just a Shakira This isn't Do you understand what it is? I'm trying to prove this evening?

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

No one.

00:09:49--> 00:09:50

Okay. So

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

the point that I'm trying to get at and this is something which is unique to Islam, and this is what makes it

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

Islam different to other religions is we have a high

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

requirement of authenticity. If you were to go to your Hindu friend and ask them, the rituals they do at their weddings or at their place, who told you to do that? So well, we grew up like that. Okay, fine. Your parents told you who told your parents that eventually they'll say, well, some religious guy, some guru, some guy in the temple told us that okay, fine, great. Is he God? Does he speak to Gods? You know, he doesn't. He learned the books, okay? Now bring the books, or the books, can we trust that the books come directly from an authority, and you'll find that most religions at this point they struggle, they'll say, we just believe, and we have faith in it. The Bible, for

00:10:48--> 00:11:31

example, the most studied book on earth has over 40 Anonymous authors, no one knows who wrote it could be a Christian could be anyone it could be, it could have been, who knows? No one knows who wrote it. 40 authors that we don't know who wrote the Bible. And so for Islam, we saying, Look, your life, your death, your salvation in the akhira, depends on you following these, these scriptures. So you obviously want to make sure that it's coming from the right person, you don't want to be following some rule and law your whole life. And it was some scholar, or some person, some ignorant person, some liar, some fabricator who made up some saying, and you think the prophets on said it,

00:11:31--> 00:12:15

and now you're following it? Okay, so how do we know that the Quran is authentic? And how do we know that the Hadith are authentic? And so this goes down to how are these books or the scriptures recorded? And how were they preserved the Quran? And the Quran? I think we spoken we touched on it a little bit before the Quran Alhamdulillah there's no reason to really question authenticity of the Quran, that is what we call mutawatir. Without the term with Awatea with Awatere means that it is more plausible that the Quran is it is rather it is impossible to assume that the Quran has been fabricated? Or what do we mean? Think about it, if the Quran were to be fabricated, you would have

00:12:15--> 00:12:56

required the entire group of companions of the Prophet peace be upon him to collectively lie and make up a lie. You understand? For if you were to say, a country like this, China exists, you say, Well, I've I haven't been there. But I've I'm pretty sure it exists, was a how do you really know it exists? Well, if he doesn't exist, then it means all of us are part of some of the whole world is part of some big conspiracy, all my teachers got together and they told the lie that all the maps in the world are fake, it would be more difficult to invent the light than for it to be true. Now that's when whatever it is, you know, it is, it's more difficult for it to actually be alive. The

00:12:56--> 00:13:32

Quran is at that level, because there were no second versions, they will, you know, hundreds and hundreds of companions who memorize the same source you have, and you do, in fact, have the Quran, records of the Quran going back to the earliest of manuscripts, and it is exactly the same to the Quran that we have now. So Hamdulillah I think the preservation of the Quran is beyond reproach, you can't really question the preservation of the Quran or hamdulillah only religion on earth, that that can accept that the holy book goes directly back to its founder, like not the founder, of course, but to the Prophet. At least we know it came from the visa that's what we that's what we know that

00:13:32--> 00:13:37

the Prophet peace be upon him is where the Quran you know, originated from in this world.

00:13:38--> 00:14:16

Now, as for Hadith, this is where it's a bit more complicated. Because the Hadith was not compiled in the time of not completely, the entire sunnah, was not recorded in the time of the Navi Salam, and in the time of the sahaba. So the Quran why we could add is so well preserved, is that in the lifetime of the Nabisco Salam, people memorize it, and people wrote it down. And so when the Prophet peace be upon him passed away, and if you're following my Joomla series, you will know that in the time of say, number Walker, the first caliph and we'll talk about this modern human Shala that the Quran was was was basically put in a book form within one year of the difficulty Salam so within one

00:14:16--> 00:14:46

year, the Quran was written down in book form the complete Quran. If you look at the Bible, for example, it was only what we call canonized. It was only confirmed as what is Bible many, many decades or hundreds of years often Ibiza, the church only confirmed this is the Bible many, many centuries later. And until today, there is the base. So the Quran hamdulillah is unique in that preservation. The hadith on the other hand, is a little more complicated. And so the Hadith was,

00:14:47--> 00:14:59

if you think about how the Hadith was, was shade, it's any statement than a piece of meat none of the prophets and could have made a statement and only one person saw him. He could have said one thing to one companion. That's a hadith

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

have given a sermon like on Hajj 200,000 people, so many, many people swim. Sometimes he didn't even say anything. Someone just saw him going to the toilet with his left foot into the toilet. Someone said I saw the Prophet peace be upon him using the miswak in Ramadan, for example. So

00:15:16--> 00:15:55

all of this is it's a lot more scattered in the Quran. Also, the people didn't write it down as they did with the Quran. They didn't memorize it like they did with the Quran. And so it was simply shared as an oral tradition. You know, one group of Sahara one group of people told the next group it was time obviously, the Sunnah became a lot more difficult to collect, it began it was scattered and of course people who forgot certain Hadith or they added certain things to it by mistake or people even my Allah predict fabricated Hadith are gonna be Salam they wanted for example, you know, they wanted some, you know, the guy who sells cars, sisters, he wants his shop to flourish. And so

00:15:55--> 00:16:35

it is always slims, there is a Hadith wannabe Salam who said, I Muslim, he is not a Muslim if he does not eat ecosystem on a Sunday. Oh, no, all of us need to microsystems. But this is a fabricated Hadith this man invented the Hadith for some worldly gain. And that's why perhaps the most authentic hadith the Hadith, that has the most record to it, is the Hadith of the Prophet and says, Whoever lies upon me, deliberately, Whoever tells a lie about me on purpose, then let him take his seat in the fire, let him take his seat in the fire. This is the most authentic hadith when I say the most authentic, the most Sahaba recorded it and shared it. You know, we have a lot of evidence that this

00:16:35--> 00:16:36

is a Hadith I'm going to be Salam.

00:16:37--> 00:17:22

So you can begin to understand that the complexity of compiling the Sunnah is not an easy thing. And that is why there are many specialized scholars over the years that have done this job. So the Hadith became scattered throughout as the Sahaba as the Companions moved throughout the world, and they settled from from Egypt, to Arabia, to Iraq to Iran as they moved, the Hadith moved with them. And as they taught different students, the Hadith started to diffuse and a time came, you know, we could say maybe of the first people to compile Hadith in a book, Imam Malik will talk about Imam Malik insha Allah was about 100 years who lived 100 years after the Prophet Salaam. So maybe one one

00:17:22--> 00:17:33

between him and the Prophet Salam will maybe one or two generations, this Imam Malik Imam Malik will talk about him, he loved

00:17:34--> 00:18:12

one generation after the generation of Sahaba. between him and the Sahaba is only one generation. So even Malik, you could say he met the students of the Sahaba Imam Malik meet the students the sahaba. So quite early, but still not that close as to meet directly the you know, from the sahaba. And his book is of the first book, Imam Malik spoke called the water compiling the hadith of Medina, he only he didn't travel the world, in Medina, you know, and obviously, most of this is with a prophet, some love. That's where he died. That's where the majority of the Sahaba lived. And the students also hobbling Medina. And so obviously, this man realized, look, if we don't put all the Hadith in a

00:18:12--> 00:18:44

book, it could get lost. If I didn't go around to every, basically every household in Medina and say, What did you learn from your grandfather? Your grandfather was a companion, what did he tell you about the Prophet peace, and he starts compiling these things. And this is how the books of Hadith were compiled. And so people at the at the first stage, they collected they, all they did was they collected wherever they went in the world, let's find Sahaba, let's find students are the companions. And we just collect information and put it in the book. So this is 100. At a time when paid people in the writing became

00:18:45--> 00:19:09

most of the companions were illiterate, they couldn't read or write. But now the grandchildren obviously got to a point when they were able to read and write. And so the first stage of the collecting the first stage of authenticating Hadith, was to collect as much as you can. And so you take with it, the good, the bad, the ugly, you take everything with it. And so you had many books of Hadith that has all kinds of funny things in the

00:19:10--> 00:19:55

next, the next step in the Hadith, authenticate, authentication was once we've collected all the books of Hadith, like we have now many, many books of Hadith, we go through them, and we say, is this authentic or not authentic? We grade them now we test them, and we throw out the ones which are, which we know are not reliable. And so the Hadith are tested. They are put through an exam, and if they pass, we say it's authentic and if they fail, the Hadith fails. We say it's not authentic, and we are levels of authenticity. There are grades in which we have certainty. Now remember, the whole question is, did there be some say this? Some Hadith we say our mortality meaning we are 110%

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

Sure, the province said it, there is no doubt it's impossible for him to not have not said it.

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

You know, it is impossible that a companion in Egypt and a companion in Iraq and a companion in Medina all say the exact same thing that on this day at this time the Prophet SAW Selim stood up and he said, ABCD How is it possible that these three, or these team Sahaba came together and made up the same story? They all made the same mistake impossible, most likely it did happen. So we say this is mutawatir It is beyond question like the Quran is as authentic as the Quran is, so some Hadith or at the level of brutality, then you have certain Hadith, which we call and this is what you're probably all familiar with is called Sai. Authentic. So he means authentic, we've tested it, it

00:20:38--> 00:20:47

passed with flying colors, we tested the Hadith, and we know that look 9080 90% We give it an A star and a Grade A grade Hadith, it's authentic.

00:20:49--> 00:21:23

Now, the difference between mutawatir and Ser is whatever it is, it's impossible for it to be incorrect. It's impossible for the Robinson not to have said it. Sorry. It is highly unlikely it is almost impossible but still possible that the sahih Hadith could have slipped through that it somehow something became so well known amongst the people and everyone believes to be Hadith, but no one knows you know, and a very good example of this is if I ask I mean take a test here and take a test yeah just to see

00:21:27--> 00:21:30

but um, I mean, what's the name of the Angel of Death

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

mean you've been

00:21:37--> 00:21:40

putting on the spot? Anybody? What's the name of the angel of death?

00:21:48--> 00:21:52

Yes, that's in the Quran molecule note, but there's a name that's very famous, ascribed to him.

00:21:54--> 00:21:55

Anybody is

00:21:57--> 00:22:37

not Israel eel. If you ask people, most people will say the angel of deaths name is Israel eel. So there is a default in Israel feel is a God. And we all know that Israel eel is something that everyone will say is the name of angel of death. But there's no Hadith anyway, that says that it just became it's one of those things that no one knows how. But it became so well known and so common that everyone sees his name is Israel. And so it is possible that a hadith could have been a statement could have become so common that everyone believes it to be a hadith, but it's very unlikely. And so we say the site the authentic sahih Hadith, or you can trust Inshallah, could you

00:22:37--> 00:23:23

trust in it, it is from the NABI Salam, we have in the next grade is called Hassan, Hassan. For those of you whose name is Hassan, Hassan, it means good credible. So Hassan is like look 70% between 70 75% It is not 100% it is not the top level of authenticity, but it's a very, it's most likely it is from the Navi Salam. The next grade is called the if we mean it is weak, you know, it's below 50% that most likely it is unlikely that I've even said it. So there are certain level certain Hadith we have them here. They are some mistakes, not mistakes in them, but there's some weakness in it. There is some I will talk about what makes a hadith strong and what makes it weak. I mean,

00:23:25--> 00:24:07

we can maybe discuss that. So as we said, some Hadith are so strong they also hear the authentic mutawatir some Hadith are good has a nice there are some hottie who say look, this is weak. This is a poor Hadith not the poor Hadith, but its reliability is a bit shaky. We give it maybe a 40% it could still be from the the Salah, a weak Hadith, possibly it is possible then having some actually said it, he actually did it, but the evidence is lacking. There is some something missing. And then of course there are Hadith which we call mo door which is fabricated and rejected. We will say 100% sure then a reason did not say this thing. So there are some Hadith in some books, very famous

00:24:07--> 00:24:23

books. To me the even imagine the books that you might have heard in the you'll find Hadith which are completely fabricated we say look this this should not be in the book. The book made a mistake, this hadith, we throw it away. It's not a hadith. It is not a hadith. We don't call it a hadith. So

00:24:24--> 00:24:30

what do you think, makes a hadith authentic? Or if you are a hadith

00:24:32--> 00:24:44

authenticator, your auditor, your audit Hadith. What do you think makes makes a hadith more authentic or less authentic makes it stronger or weaker? What do you think is also the class again?

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

Just the Hafsa

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

What do you think makes a hadith authentic or not authentic?

00:25:02--> 00:25:12

Could it be the child says, excellent. This is us talking something really hydrated. Does the solder Do you not understand what what what's this how to set up a chain of narrators.

00:25:18--> 00:25:18

to solder

00:25:20--> 00:25:59

you went on off mute and then you just changed your mind. So yes, I have some mentions something very important which is also unique to Islam, we have something called the chain of narrators. Now, if you think of the example of I gave you one of the earliest books are the first scholars to really collect Hadith in a book is a Hadith collector is this man, Imam Malik. And he loved, you know, between him and the Prophet, he didn't meet the prophets on them. It would have been if he made that maybe somebody could have simply asked him ya rasool Allah, I have a book full of Hadith that is said to be from you, can you go through them and just tell me what is true or not true, he couldn't

00:25:59--> 00:26:44

do that, because he didn't know he didn't meet the numbers on them. He also didn't meet any companions. But he made the students of the companions. And so what the collector of the Hadith bit, the collectors of the Hadith, what they did was, they were very, they did something which was very smart and very unique to Islam. It is perhaps the only religion that has this thing. We don't only have the information, we have a chain of what we call neuritis. It's basically like you know, if you look at a chain email, if those of you have, you know, if you work in a corporate you know, you get an email, you said, Well, where did this thing come from? I'm being asked how much is in the bank

00:26:44--> 00:27:22

account, but now you know, how much is asking me, but who asked how much okay, I should ask how much and then sada asked Ayesha and then you can see the link how it goes all the way back to Oh, that's sweet started. Okay. Now when the Hadith when the Sahaba when the scholars collected Hadith, they would go to someone and ask the man do you have any Hadith from the Prophet peace be upon him? They'll say yes, I have 10 Hadith said okay, now read the Hadith to me. And the man will say the Prophet peace upon him said whoever does not eat the ecosystem on a Sunday then he's older. Who told you that? You didn't hear directly from the Prophet because what did you eat from? So you know, I

00:27:22--> 00:28:06

heard it from my teacher who was Suleiman. So okay, so we put down our mother from Sulaiman. Now wait, it's too late, man. Yeah, it is no Sulaiman. He made Abu Bakr Sahabi said, Okay, if you make this a hobby, and it's a hobby said, so then Okay, so we have for every Hadith for every Hadith, in these books, we have a chain of names going all the way back to the Visa Center, sometimes the chain is very small to people. So another chain is very big, 789 people, right? So and of course, the bigger the chain, the less and less reliable, you can think of if, if the information is passed on, the more hands it passes on, the more problematic is this going to be? And so by testing this chain,

00:28:07--> 00:28:21

by asking certain very clever questions by not testing by auditing the chain, the Hadith scholars, many of them are basically modern day auditors. They assess is the chain reliable, so they will say, okay,

00:28:22--> 00:29:07

Mohammed, in our example, Ahmed, Ahmed, the ecosystem maker said that his teacher, he chef, Suleiman said, Whoever eats ecosystem that does not eat ecosystem is not a Muslim. So okay, who is the swla manga? Now we try and get more information about him. So this Sulayman guy, he doesn't no one knows him. So we go back to our madness, I lose. Listen, we want you chef, is it? No, he's the chef of of our machine. And then we go to the recordings of this guy, the ship is a woman, see this shift, Ibrahim, it should listen, there is no record of the Sulaiman guy. And everywhere we go, we don't find this anyway. So he said, there's a problem in this chain, that there is a man in that chain. So

00:29:07--> 00:29:51

a man no one knows who he is. He is much more in command. We don't know who he is. All we say we know. So the man is a famous chef. But then you saying that chefs will a man spoken chefs today's, but the two of them never, they didn't even ever meet each other. The one died before the other one was born. So now we say in this inconsistency in the chain, there's something missing here. And through that process, by analyzing every name, every time frame when they lived, where they met by going through the biography of every single one of those people, we can then of course, begin to eliminate the Hadith that are fabricated, the Hadith are strong. Also, if one scholar compiled the

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

book in Medina, and he said that he said so and another scholar independently a different scholar in Iraq, he compiles and he comes up with the same height

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


00:30:01--> 00:30:37

completely different people but he comes up with the same answer, then that is very strong. So when you find Hadith appearing in multiple places, multiple people heard it, this adds to the credibility. And so this is in today we have in Bitcoin called blockchain you can actually see the history of the transactions. Hadith was basically transmitted like that. Now, do we still have to go through the process no one hamdulillah it's been done for us. As we said, the first group of scholars collected the Hadith and they compiled books of Hadith. Then you had another group of scholars who authenticated the books, they went through the books, and they added the grading. The

00:30:37--> 00:31:22

most famous of these authenticators is a man by the name of Buhari party, he went through all these books of Hadith and also collected more Hadith, but he lived many, many decades, more than 100 years after the Prophet of Allah. So most what he actually did was he didn't go and collect Hadith all over the world, you basically took the collections that were there. And he took out the Hadith which he graded and assessed and said, these are 100% authentic, and he did a very deep analysis of all the books of Hadith, and so on hamdulillah his book is called Sahih Bukhari because every narration in his book, we can rely almost fully it is from the prophets of Salaam and the other other books of

00:31:22--> 00:31:59

Hadith that are highly credible, and so on. hamdulillah back to our question, we want to learn how to perform salah. We need to look at the Quran for all the rules when it comes to Salah. And then we say okay, let's bring all the books of Hadith that have been tested and audited and Al Hamdulillah all in sha Allah Most of them are, we can realize from the Prophets Allah Now we have the Sunnah, you know in a book form, we had the Quran and the book for and we have the Sunnah and the book form. Now we give it over to the Imam, the chef and we say chef, you go through the books, you go through the Quran, and you go through the entire sunnah. And you tell me how do I perform salah. And that is

00:31:59--> 00:32:03

the next step. Now how do we get the rulings and the laws and the processes?

00:32:04--> 00:32:38

And that is Subhanallah the next process of which we'll discuss Inshallah, next week, how the laws of Islam are extracted from the Quran and the Sunnah, how the laws are extracted from the laws, we'll talk more about this different opinions, different methods, different scholars coming to different conclusions. Why do some people perform Why do some people say that if you touch your wife, your will do is broken, but the Hanafi say who is Hanafis? Are they Muslim? Are they what kind of Muslims are they do they do they have a different Quran? And what are the people you know, what are these? You know, so all these Pamela Inshallah, in our next discussion will talk about these

00:32:38--> 00:32:42

wonderful, wonderful questions. Any questions before we conclude this evening.

00:32:47--> 00:32:50

So I know that this sort of

00:32:51--> 00:33:35

lectures this, this one in last week was a bit heavy, definitely not from scratch. But I wanted to give you a bit of insight to get the comfort that the way you've been performing your Salah, the way you've been practicing your Islam, it has been tested and graded and studied by 1000s and 1000s of scholars over many, many centuries, so that you have high level of comfort that you are making salah, like your Prophet makes Salah and just want you to think about this. If you ask your Christian friend, your Christian neighbor, hey, Jesus, we all love Jesus. You say he's a God, we say he's a prophet. We all say he's the Messiah. If Jesus was here today, and Jesus said, Do ABCD we

00:33:35--> 00:33:56

will follow him, everyone will follow him. Now ask you, how did Jesus pray? How did he eat? How did he sleep? You don't know how we know what people's well, we don't know how we don't have any records of his life. We do and a little liquids we do have in the Bible, for example. We're not sure if it really comes from Him. And even though once we know he didn't do

00:33:57--> 00:34:36

for example, in the Bible, Jesus prayed, how did he pray, he fell on his face. That's what the Bible says he made he made sujood he bowed down in sujood. And that's how he made salah. He prayed to God by Pauling Institute. So we ask the question, how do you pray? If you go to the church, no one makes a dude anywhere in the world. No church on earth. Does that make sense either. So you say your religion obviously changed so much that what you have today is very different to what it was in the beginning. Where as a hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah you as a Muslim, you know, I make salah, like my prophet makes Salah made salah, I perform Hajj, the way he performed Hajj, we have

00:34:36--> 00:34:52

exactly the same recipe and to preserve that took a huge effort from the scholars and the Allameh and that's what I wanted to give you insight into before we just teach you how to perform salah. Okay, just like Luffy thank you so much. Any last questions, comments concerns?

00:34:53--> 00:34:54

Before we conclude

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

then inshallah have a wonderful

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

week eight keep us immune to us and all the best you and your family was ALLAH Satana Mohammed Al Al Yusuf Islam Sunni and hamdulillah Bill Alameen Salam Alikum, Mahabharata
