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

All Praise be to Allah subhanho wa Taala the Lord, the light of the heavens and the earth, the creator, the Sustainer most merciful most kind, I testify that law that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah subhana wa tada and we send out greetings and salutations, I would love to our nav and our Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be perfect and pure family, his companions and all those who follow his student until the end of time and will be amongst them. Allah subhanho wa Taala granted this Juma. I'd like for us for the week to come and forgiveness for the previous week, while hamdulillah and we send out a warm welcome to all the listeners of the

00:00:58--> 00:01:37

radio 786 Alhamdulillah. The radio station is here. Everybody on your misbehavior, please. Alhamdulillah and Alhamdulillah for the benefit of the listeners. He had Majid Wahhabi Islam Al Hamdulillah. We do things in series, and we've been doing almost a three month series called the politics of faith. We discuss the relationship between the rulers and the ruled and discuss a number of matters. Currently, we are going through the relationship of the four imams to the hollyford of the time, and we spoke about Imam Abu hanifa Imam Malik and Imam Shafi and today, inshallah, inshallah, we'll be talking about the fourth, the fourth of the four imams of the great mother in

00:01:40--> 00:01:45

law. Mr. Mohammed, of course known about humbly madhhab

00:01:46--> 00:01:47

His name

00:01:48--> 00:02:30

is Ahmed, the son of who have met the son of humble yet we don't say I met the son of Mohammed, why, because his father died before he was even born. And you'll find that spinalis attained of many, many of the great scholars like Imam Bahati, like Imam Shafi, like even Mohammed, they never meet the fathers. And in fact, it was the mothers that the mothers of these great Imams and great scholars that inspired them and encourage them. And as we move ahead, he's born and raised 64 of the hegira. He's 15 years younger than Imam Shafi. And if you want to know they say, if you want to know if a scholar how great a scholar is, is when he makes a name his own. So when we say in the books

00:02:30--> 00:03:11

of, of learning, that this was the saying of Malik, this was the opinion of Mohammed, they don't ask, which we know is acclimating him, but we know it's Imam Malik. So this shows you the greatness of the scholar, there were many aha moments, but there's only one in the terms of the scholars, one Imam, Ahmed Rama, so Mr. Mohammed, what did he look like? He was a tool, thin doc of confliction man, and he had a course look about himself, he always looked course. Why? Because he was extremely poor. From the beginning of his life until the end of his life, he was an extremely poor man. And at some point, it was actually by choice that he preferred poverty. He was raised, as I said, in

00:03:11--> 00:03:54

Baghdad, the capital of the Muslim world, by a single mother, a single parent. And while his mother was not a great scholar, and she didn't have the kurama and the piety and the kind of ability like the mother of Imam Shafi or the mother of Imam Bukhari, what the mother of Imam Muhammad to team is perhaps the greatest lesson that any scholar taught him. I said in the series, I want you to have a relationship with these four times that when you think of Abu hanifa, you think of a trailblazer, the genius the man who saw things no one else saw Mr. Malik is the professional, very precise, and stick. Even sheriff, you often Boy, that becomes the Encyclopedia of knowledge, and he's alibis. Mr.

00:03:54--> 00:04:34

Ahmed, he doesn't appear to have the natural gifts like Imam, Imam, Abu hanifa. He doesn't have that natural genius. But what he was taught as a young man going through extreme poverty is never to give up. And this came from his mother, that he had this stubbornness, this wall that could not be broken, and this will become his homework, that you could push ahead, and he would not break. You couldn't break this man, where other people would give up. This man continued. This is what this man is known for his resilience and his perseverance, Mr. Muhammad, he speaks to us and he tells us that he never knew his father, and things were so tough as a young person. And his mother always said to

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

him, you don't ask people for help. You don't look you you solve your own problems. you depend on Allah. He said that after he would study in the morning, it would be his routine to go to the market after the people at lift, and you'd pick up the grains of wheat that fell from the clots and bring it home and this would be the food his mother would make soup from this. This is the kind of poverty that he lived in. And spinal we think about

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

Mother raising single mother today. It's difficult. It's difficult at that time even more difficult. And I wonder in the circles where, you know, the Islamic learning the massage, it's mostly you'd find men and boys that dominate this area a woman wasn't able to access these things easily. How did she educate her young son, because my mother in law, his mother was determined to educate him. She She wanted him to be educated. And before she sent him to the masjid, when he was a young boy to number one, learn the Quran. And he memorized the Quran before the age of 10. He was able to read and write at the time with very few people could and as a part time job, he worked in the post

00:05:39--> 00:06:21

office, he people would get letters, and they couldn't read it. So he would read it for them. And he would write letters on behalf of other people. This was a job he had to do as a part time. But he loved learning. And he was a wonderful student. And because of his mother, and his character, which his mother emphasized on him, his etiquette, his discipline, the big shoe, the big scholars of Baghdad, allowed him to sit in the class. Now, as I said, before with Mr. Malik, you couldn't just sit in the top left is cloth, you had to have like any university, you need to have a few credits or degrees before you sit in the class of the big shift. You need to go sit with the small ones. But

00:06:21--> 00:07:00

this boy was so impressive. And of course, he's an orphan. And he didn't have money, that the scholars looked at him fondly. And amongst his first teachers, as a young boy, was called the abusive, called the abusive one of the great students of Abu hanifa, Abu hanifa, his main students, one of his main students, was now a judge of that one of the big judges of that, and He will teach in the masjid, and they found a man, I met a young boy sitting there, along with the other big shot lawyers, and they would say, these top officials and top two you will lie, we pay a fortune for private tutors for our kids. But we don't see the results like we see like this young man, I met

00:07:00--> 00:07:42

this young orphan boy first in class sitting be taking notes. And on top of that they see whenever he learns a new Hadeeth, the next day he would implement it. If we speak about fasting tomorrow, use fasting if we spoke about nothing, so seldom will this you'd find a hammer trying to say that this is a boy of 10 years old, 11 years old. spagnola. At the back, his mother is teaching your manners and etiquette and in the machine is learning knowledge. And possible use, of course known for is fake knowledge, and obviously learned from the different sciences. But he found his calling. He found he had a gift that other people struggled with his brilliant memory. He had a powerful memory.

00:07:42--> 00:08:24

And and again, I mentioned this before, there's a difference between fic and Hadeeth. Fake is about reasoning and logic. I make the example thick is like your CPU, your processor, you have to find solutions. How do you feel about memory, it's a hard drive a USB, right. And some scholars were good at the one side and some are good at the other Mr. Ahmed, was known for both. But he excelled more as a scholar of Hadith because of his memory, and in hiding fees, no shortcuts. Even if you're the genius, you have to sit hours to memorize Hadith, it's all about memorizing and knowing. It's about discipline, and strict hard work day in day out. Even a hammer is built for this is a man that can

00:08:24--> 00:09:08

go through hours of hard work, but people would give up he has perseverance and endurance. So he found that he had a knack for learning of Heidi's. And he started to study Hadith from all the big scholars have, that by the age of 2022. He was bestowed with the title of half if it's like a certificate, half of meaning. You're now a hadith scholar, he had memorized over 20 over 30,000 Hadith to put you into perspective, 50,000 Hadith are the six books of headings all put together is about 30,000. So you had memorize all these these amount of headings before the age of 20. And the scholars of Baghdad, now recognize them as a competent scholar. But he wasn't ready to teach it. He

00:09:08--> 00:09:42

said that, you know, but that is not the center of knowledge. There are many areas in the world that have scholars I haven't learned from and now he took permission from his mother said if he could travel, if she gave him permission, and he was at a very unique relationship with his mother, he would be sitting before fudger arranged to go out and his mother would always say, I don't want you to leave the house before. It's dangerous and he would sit and wait for the other because he'd wanted to go to the scholars immediately. But because his mother said wait till the van goes off. He would sit patiently waiting he had this relationship with his mother. And finally when his mother

00:09:42--> 00:09:44

allowed him he started to travel.

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

To to learn knowledge, how much money did you have nothing. Did you have even a camel or horse or donkey? No. He said five times I went to Makkah to learn and then I went to Yemen and two of those five times. I went walking

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

He walked from Baghdad to Makkah from Makkah to Yemen to learn smile I feel for those students that walk an hour to school not easy. But this man Subhanallah walked from countries to learn. He This is how he would his his dedication to learn from knowledge. So he walked in he traveled most of the Muslim lands. He was in Basra he was in that as we said he went to Iran. He went to Mecca and hedges this area maka, Medina, this is where the great scholars of Hadith were. And he said, I went the five times to learn and amongst the great, the great influence of his life was when he came to Makkah. And it's a beautiful story about when he first comes to Makkah the first time in Mecca, the

00:10:45--> 00:11:26

big ship of hadith of Mecca, the main share of Hadith in Mecca, was a scholar by the name of Sophia, even Marina sufian. Say Mohammed and a friend came to Makkah to learn from soufiane and they sitting in the class of Sudan. And then all of a sudden, the people notice, even humble isn't in class. Now. He's not a guy to bunk class. He's come all the way from Iraq walking, he's not gonna bunk across. So they look for him. And they found him I'm sitting in the class of unknown beta one, a small class in Harlem, there was a teacher in Harlem, he had a tiny class, maybe five people, the guys dressed like a beta one and somebody sitting there, and they say, Have you lift the class of Sofia and the

00:11:26--> 00:12:05

big shift to sit at the claws of this unknown man, this beta one? So Mr. Mohammed says, just keep quiet. Just listen to him. And voila, if you miss something from soufiane, you miss it from soufiane you can always get it from someone else. But if you miss something from this man, no other scholar on earth can teach you that, who was the scholar? Imam Shafi. This was Imam Shafi just began teaching, he was still a new lecturer in Harlem. Mr. Ahmed, so well this guy is on a different level. And the biggest influence in the life of your Mohammed was Imam Shafi. He says, you know, Ahmed says, After I met Shafi for 14 years in every sada I would say, Oh Allah have mercy on my

00:12:05--> 00:12:41

mother and my father and Mohammed irisa Shafi, he said compaign, a chef to us, in terms of knowledge is like the sun. This is the relationship these imams had with one another. So even Shafi was Imam Ahmed, one of his great mentors and teachers in particularly in the field of fic. But Imam Shafi again recognized that Imam Mohammed acquired more Hadith and was more proficient in the science of hiding than him and he would say to Mr. Shafi system, Ahmed, Ahmed, if you find the Hadith teach us so and let me learn so I can, you know, adapted to my method.

00:12:42--> 00:13:22

Mashallah, this is the love that these imams had for one another. And he would continue his studies until and travel around the world until the age of 14. And at the age of 14, he finally comes back to Baghdad. And also at that time, the mom Shafi now says when I came to the harem the first time no one knew a chef, his class was the smallest. When I came the last time to Makkah for Hajj, all the other classes were empty. And chef was the biggest. Right. So you know, Chef, his status grew over the last 10 years or so. Even chef, he visits about that now at the invitation of the halifa. And still now Mr. Ahmed is a big chef is 40 years old. He's teaching in Baghdad, one of the leading

00:13:22--> 00:14:01

scholars of Hadith on Earth, but when his chef would come to Baghdad, he would walk behind him even behind these donkey taking notes. And people would say, you know, are you really like lowering yourself, you're a big chef, off the shafran He says, you know, you can do what you want. But if you miss something from this man, you're not gonna get anywhere else. And when you I'm sure for you the loss of the last things he said about him, I'm not sure if he would leave that and he passes away after that. He says, I left Iraq, and I did not leave behind a little bit more pious, noble man. I am more knowledgeable person. A person with more taqwa than I met, even humbled myself. He says this

00:14:01--> 00:14:42

about him I've met. So at the age of 14 now, Imam Ahmed now have two full years of study, memorizing and some one student of his Sidwell law he might teach even Mohammed had memorized close to a million Hadees. You know, this is you know, swannell, as I said, if you put into perspective, at the age of 50, all the six books of Hadith he had memorized another 20 years of excelling. This man was one of the leading scholars of knowledge and now at the age of 14, now he feels competent to teach in the officially in the masjid, and he never ever wanted to be close to the positions of power. He was given positions and salaries, and he refused all of that. He would never accept even gifts. But

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

one would say on the extreme side, during his studies, he ran out of money and it to sell his clothing. And his colleagues said, we will learn new clothes, we'll give you money said no, rather give me a job and and pay me. So someone said, okay, there's a book I'd like your copy of the book. And he copied the book, obviously not photocopies. So you don't

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

Bookout, so you will get some money to buy clothes. This is the kind of man he was throughout the age of 40. He's one of the leading scholars of Hadith one of the leading professionals of the Hadith science, people would come from Spain to learn from Ahmed, even humble. And as I said, he still was so humble and fearful of fake meaning giving rulings of his own opinion, he would say when I teach you a Hadith, and one of the reasons why so famous is he insists that the students are right. So now he encourages students to write, even though you have a good memory, even though he had a great memory, the base of memories he wrote down the information. So you tell the students, right, the

00:15:37--> 00:16:18

Hadith I give you. But if I give you an opinion of my own, stop writing, I don't want to say everyone brings down this is my opinion, that means nothing. He didn't want his opinion to become a matter. Of course, Allah would have different designs for him, he would say of his method. And if we say what's the difference between the Hambali method and the other modality, the hanbali method is the most strictest in terms of accepting Heidegger in terms of following Hadith. Imam Ahmed, because he has so many Hadees at his disposal, he preferred using even doubtful Hadith over his own opinion. He said this Hadeeth 20% chances from the visa salon, I rather choose that than my own. He had my

00:16:18--> 00:16:29

own reasoning, you understand this man. And if he always felt my opinion, means nothing are all the ticket heading that week, over my own opinion. So this is the family matter. You know, one of the reasons why it's different.

00:16:30--> 00:17:06

people imagine him as a hammer because of his sickness. And we'll see why he's known as being strict and his perseverance and a man who was constantly discipline that he was kind of a strict guy. It's very different when you look at his domestic life. When you look at the Imam at home, he he only had you know, his whole life, he only had one wife, and he says, for 30 years, I'd marry at the age of 40. He only married at the age of 40. And some asked why at the age of 40. Some mentioned that only when a mom sheffy passed away did he feel now? Now I can teach now I can settle down while the mom is the shelf is alive. I have no right to teach. That's the kind of man he was. So when he my shelf,

00:17:06--> 00:17:43

he passed away, he settles down and he got married and he says with 30 years, my wife and I, we never had a serious arguments this monologue. Sure. How is this possible? This is my wife and I have an agreement. When I'm when I'm upset or angry. She doesn't say anything. And when she's upset and angry, I don't say anything. And look at his advice. You know, he was a great father of all the Imams. The Mohammed's kids become great scholars with more than the other Imams, and he sends one of his biggest students. And he was the Imam that's teaching the world scholars, Hadith, but he would go home and teach his kids alphabetize sons and his daughters. He gives advice to his son when he

00:17:43--> 00:18:20

sounds good when his son gets married. One of these at least these they call it the 10 golden rules of marriage, you can Google it, just give you one of these 10 he tells his son Oh my son, the girl you getting married to you love her. She's so nice. She's so wonderful. Just remember this a time will come in the month every month, which is not that same person. You will be frustrated with you will see things from her you don't like she will speak to you in a circle you don't like don't become upset and don't enforce your your rights over her. Why? Because at that period in the month, Allah gives up his right of salah and forcing on her. So you must give your rights of husband upon

00:18:20--> 00:18:59

final look at the understanding of this man. All the things I've said about him as being one of the greatest scholars of Hadith one of the greatest scholars of fic. In his classroom you would find who would be on at a local Imam Bukhari was in his class. Mr. Muslim was in his class. A Buddha was in his class when he mount Buhari wrote his book of howdy this high body he gave it to him to review. And I think in the original draft, Mr. Muhammad raised four Hadith which he said have a question mark against four Hadith so we get to understand who this man is Imam Ahmed Mohammed, but this these things didn't make you famous. What made him an admirable, humble famous was something called his

00:18:59--> 00:19:33

manner that taste because Mr. Mohammed would do something which preserved and defended the Quran, he would stand alone against the entire government, against the entire clergy for about 15 years to protect Islam in the deen. For the first time in the history of Islam. The government tried to interfere in the understanding of the deen the government tried to sit an understanding of Islam and impose a certain doctrine on the oma and one many Mohammed Mohammed stood up against them and refused to break. What are we talking about?

00:19:34--> 00:20:00

At the age of 50 or so, a mathematical 50 years old is one of the greatest scholars in the world. Probably the most famous scholar in Baghdad, the halifa of the time, Moon who saw himself and he was an academic and a learner he was he was a halifa that loved learning and knowledge and he became very impressed with Greek philosophy and a group of a group of philosophers known as the mortality law came to prominence this

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

groups, the sick the Martin Zilla, what they said, for example, they said everything in the Sharia must first agree to logic and reasoning before we accept it. So for them, it didn't make sense that someone should be punished in the cupboard before judgment. So they denied the punishment of Aqaba. They said it does not make sense for Allah subhanaw taala to be angry, anger is not a good thing. So Allah all the headings that is going to be we interpret it in another way we take our logic over the Quran, and the sooner you understand, and the halifa like this understanding, he became a more attentively and he said all the scholars, all the scholars of Islam must follow this understanding.

00:20:39--> 00:20:51

And of the worst things the martyrs, ILA said was, they said, the Quran is the creation of a law, not the revelation of Allah, the Quran is a creation, not the words the speech of Allah.

00:20:52--> 00:21:35

Now, something which is created, can be changed, can be edited, can become can die can become obsolete, you understand the implications. And the halifa insisted, every email every scholar in the oma must say the Quran is a creation and through pressure, and through abuse, bribery and torture, every single scholar either surrendered to the halifa remain silent or tried to use some kind of trickery to get out of it. But they gave into the halifa except two people as a young scholar by the name of Mohammed Balu, and even even humble and when it became known that Imam Ahmed is opposing the halifa he says I refuse to say the Quran is anything but the Kalam of Allah revealed not created,

00:21:35--> 00:22:15

the halifa Moon became furious. And he said, Bring a hammer to me. I want to execute it myself personally. Chain him up and bring him to me. And it was a halifa lived somewhere else. And he was thinking and a long journey. This journey was so stressful that the young men this other scholar, Muhammad even look 20 years old, he died on the journey. So difficult was this journey. Mohammed is in his 50s and he's carried with chains. And he's not, you know, he tells us he's feeling he said I was scared. And I said, I don't want to meet moon moon was a fearsome halifa I didn't want to meet him. And I was about to, you know, lose my way. When a beta one came to me and said, are you I might

00:22:15--> 00:22:59

even happen? And he said, Yes. He said, Listen, you might remember, the people are looking at you. Whatever you say the implications are, they will follow you. So it's not just your son is the son of the oma on you. So Mohammed said, I realized I can't give him and he may do is Allah, don't let me meet moon. And just as he reaches the city, the news arises, the halifa has all of a sudden passed away. Alhamdulillah mama doesn't have to meet a moon. But moon wrote in his world to his new brother. In the new Khalifa, I insist that you continue this policy and make sure it will humble and all the scholars see the Quran is the creation of a law. The new Khalifa was a general, a military

00:22:59--> 00:23:11

man, a tough guy. He wasn't an academic was calling. He didn't understand all these things, philosophy. He wasn't really interested in that. But he respected his brother. And he said if my brother said so you are going to say so. So he said,

00:23:12--> 00:23:48

I don't understand all this thing. We're going to have an open trial in Baghdad, the trial of the century I'll be the judge, the Morteza all the panel of those people who say the Quran is the creation team of him. They will debate you and whoever comes with you, no one stood up. So this was a trial of the century first of Ramadan. It began in Ramadan in Baghdad. On the one side you had the Marta Zilla, on the other side, you had Ahmed, and the people were invited to attend amongst those who attended was the son of mathematical humble. And he says they brought my father in chains. And they say amen. What do you say about the Quran? And he says, I say only what law says. And the

00:23:48--> 00:24:28

student says that it is the words of Allah, not created but revealed. So the mortality was taught to debate and use the logic and reasoning and the sun that Ahmed sees, every time they gave a philosophical argument. My father responded with an idea or headings until they were quiet, until even the halifa was increased. The halifa says, Ahmed, you've impressed me even. But you must say what we tell you to say. Just say it in my ear, secretly, just to me, and I'll make you the Chief Judge of all the scholars in Mohammad season. This is what this is all the time. Oh, I mean, it'll mean Give me one hour or Hadith and I will say what you want to say Just give me a hadith one ayah

00:24:28--> 00:24:59

that says the Quran is a creation. And this begins to frustrate the halifa. So the halifa now asked him a mathematical example. What evidence do you have that the Quran is not the creation of Allah? So he says, Oh, I mean, I mean, last night, I was in jail, and they kept him in jail. And he says, I performed Hajj Salah, but I found I was unable to read from the Quran because it had died. So I sold the Quran, and I put a cover on it and I made Genesis Salah on it and I buried it. So how do you proceed? Are you mad? What are you talking about? Have you lost your mind?

00:25:00--> 00:25:38

Man, see, this is what you're saying. If the Quran is a creation, it's gonna die. You are saying that not me, you are the one that's met. So now the halifa is getting frustrated. And he says, Oh, this is the last chance now, tomorrow you even say the Quran is the creation of Allah, or will make you say it, we're going to make you say it's the creation of Allah. Mohammed goes back to his cell, and he said he was so scared and worried. And Allah subhana wa tada would send him someone to give him strength, not human. Not a scholar, not a friend, a drunkard, a drunk man, he saw that he was arrested for being drunk, and he comes in the same salaryman. Finally, they kicked him out, I made

00:25:38--> 00:26:14

in the same cells, like very personal murderers, the drunkards, drunk man enters the cell and he says, Hey, you, I made him humble, right? We all know about you, right? It's big news. So he says, yes. And the two of them begin to talk. Anyway, Mohamed says, you know, I'm really scared about tomorrow. They're gonna hit me tomorrow. I'm scared of the work. So the drunk man says, Don't be scared of the workmen. This is the 18th time I'm arrested for being drunk, and every time they lash me at times, but my love for Hummer is so much I can withstand the work. So certainly your love for the Quran should be more than that. So Mr. Ahmed felts monologue, this is from Allah, this is a

00:26:14--> 00:26:46

sign. So they bring him to the Khalifa again, and he senses when we got there that morning, there was a post an apparatus, which they tied my father up, and they said, They tied him up. And, you know, before they tied him up, they asked him one last time, what do you say about the Quran? So he said, I say what Allah says it is the words of Allah revealed, not created. So they say title halifa time up. And he asked, it wasn't one man, it was a team of lectures, because if you hit once, twice, your hand gets tired that a team of guys, and he asked halifa asked him, How many lectures will it take to kill this man?

00:26:47--> 00:27:05

He's going to say, who is going to die? So sit around 20 lashes, we can kill him with 20? So he said last chance? I mean, what do you say? Mama says, Give me one or one Heidi, and I'll say what you want to say. So let's hit begin. And his son said when they tied him up already, they dislocated his shoulders, and they began to hit him.

1234 every time he's saying the words of Allah not created until he thinks unconscious by the Bible, 12 lashes, He's unconscious. The people in the congregation are saying, Oh, am I just say what they want you to say that Allah doesn't make it difficult on you. Someone says, well, Lion elephant could not withstand the heating. When he fell unconscious. The gods ran in and said the people of Baghdad are rioting in the streets. They want to overthrow you Oh halifa because they heard you killed him and so he said stop. And he said take him to the doctor make sure he doesn't die when the doctor you know sits final. I've never seen someone being left so badly like this. And you see, take submits

00:27:45--> 00:28:19

and oh Ahmed, Mohammed says it's Ramadan and fasting. This is Viola eat this midsummer, you're going to die. He said, If I'm gonna die, I'm gonna meet a lot of fasting. But hamdullah he was saved and his own life, he would struggle from the selection. And after that, the halifa said he put him in prison for about two years. And then they put him in house service. They said you can no longer teach the greatest Hadith scholar in the world for almost 15 years, not allowed to teach. There's a beautiful story of a young man from Spain walking to Baghdad and he comes to the masjid and he says wait, I've already been humbled. Don't you know he's not allowed to teach is locked up in his house.

00:28:20--> 00:28:57

So he would act like a beggar every day he this young Spanish scholar and asked him for food and get a hadith like this one Hadith a day. This is how he learns. Eventually, long story short, eventually, after three hollyford had passed away a new Khalifa comes and he hates the Mata Zilla and he abolishes the Mattila Baba, and he says Mr. Mohammed, and imagine the scene. 70 years old greatest scholar of Hadith comes back to the masjid to now teach Hadith for the first time in almost 10 years, people just heard of him. Now he's teaching. They said the masjid was so full that they that we needed about 10 people to relay the message. And when he started to teach it, and he would

00:28:57--> 00:29:37

teach again, I said for seven years. And they say whenever that Spanish young scholar was not in the class, Mr. Mohammed would take the class to him when he was sick. They said just like you came to me when I couldn't teach, I bring the class to you when you teach from his his bedroom. This is what he did. So a lot, you know, at the age of 70. And he actually compiled he compiled a book when he found that is about you know, his fault is old. He doesn't know how much though, he put all his headings knowledge into one book. So today it's probably the biggest Encyclopedia of Hadith. The Muslim of Mohammed Buhari has about 2000 Hadees this book has over 50,000 Hadith in it, the Muslim Ummah, we

00:29:37--> 00:29:45

still have it today, but having the lights still available, and as I said, many of the great scholars like Buhari after him would learn and take from this great Imam. And,

00:29:46--> 00:30:00

you know, everyone, Mr. Mohammed was about to pass away. And many of those who tortured him and abused him asked us for math. He said, I've given everyone math already. And it's not because I'm saying I love humanity. But what good is it I see you punishing people

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

Yama, either if you are forgiven, Allah will forgive me. And of the things when he passed away of the things he said in his trial. At the trial, he said to the mortality law, what law he the day we die at our janaza Allah will decree which of the two of us are correct. When Mr. Muhammad passed away until modern times, he had the biggest journals in the history of Islam. Until about 50 years ago, when the harem expanded to like two 3 million people. a month it is known that for over 1000 years, his janazah was the biggest genocide in the history of Islam. Over 1 million people in Baghdad came to Maranatha sada. They said when they began the Genesis Sala he died away on a Friday.

00:30:40--> 00:31:20

After Juma they began the gentle sort of off the Juma and every time a new German would come until a sort of Salah the masjid was so full. And that's what he said on the day we die. Allah will show which of us is true, and they see had not taking the stance today we would have a quiz on which is created, which is subject to change, which was able to be changed. And it could be the time that showed you the first time the government tried to influence Islam, this man over seem to stop it. And since then, we'll hamdulillah no government has been able to change the laws of law, but rather it remained in the hands of guided educated scholars what happened to the law, and this is the

fourth of a full graykey mom's his mother, as I said he never ever wanted a mother and he insisted these opinions should not be written but a lot insisted that he would have a mother and his mother. Tell to the other of the great people that follow the humble method. Abdulkadir Gilani even Tamia Rahim Allah even the Saudi or Mr. of today the law of Saudi Arabia is based on humbly method so we say what hamdulillah that young orphan boy, which no one thought would anything with a mess will come from this man stood against three qualifiers and preserve the dean that must have said we have today.
