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

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa hablen.

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

smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa Sallim wa ala Shafi nambia even mousseline, a beginner Habib in our quality our union and Mohammed bin Abdullah

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

Lee he was probably he have closer at the bottom of the sleeve.

00:00:25--> 00:00:45

I commence by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala was no doubt our Creator sustainer nareesha protector and cure, I asked him the almighty to Chava his choices to blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his bath with utmost sincerity until the day of them.

00:00:46--> 00:01:33

Many brothers and sisters in Islam, the Hadith that is in discussion in regard to this particular topic is a famous Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it is one of the prophecies of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he is reported to have said along the lines of these words, that the Christians and Jews before us, they divided into 72 or 7071, or 72 sets. As for us Muslims, we will divide into 73 sects, of which 72 will be in the fire of jahannam May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all from the blazing fire of jahannam and one of these sects, one of these groups will go to general so how about it one litre Hannah and image mine were around the Prophet

00:01:33--> 00:02:19

sallallahu alayhi wasallam they were very keen on knowing which set would go to Jenna so they immediately posed the question to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yasuda, of all these sets of all these groups, which group will enter general Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in one narration responded as Allah Gemma the majority of the Muslims the main body of the Muslims I'm sorry the main body of the Muslims. And in another narration the prophets of Allah while he when he was seldom is reported to have said mana Island he was happy, the group that is upon that which I and my companions are upon. Now in regard to this, the scholars, Rahim Allah have explained in

00:02:19--> 00:03:01

regard to these two answers of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam who are al Gemma, okay, and who are the individuals who follow that wish the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions for them. Now, this particular group can be deemed as as new as soon as he well jamara because of these two statements of the prophets of Allah, while they are those who are with the gemera, the main body of the Muslims, and they are those who adhere to the teachings, the authentic teachings of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and they are the ones who stick to that. And as soon as he will jump in why, and inshallah, we're going to discuss one or two

00:03:01--> 00:03:27

characteristics very important characteristics of understand that evil jamara. But before that, I would like to touch on another additional purpose of the law. While SLM you might have seen it in the video, the intro video that was played the supervisor a lot more Anyway, it was also prophesied, interestingly, that towards the latter stages as we go closer and closer to the day of the AMA, and this is something that we will all attest to. But do you think are we closer to the day of the AMA or not?

00:03:29--> 00:03:34

Those who disagree Hands up, anyone disagreeing with the fact that we are close to the day of the AMA?

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala he states in total karma.

00:03:40--> 00:03:41

He starts off circle karma

00:03:43--> 00:04:30

is 1437 years ago, the co founder of the prophets of Allah find a value Silliman, they asked me are, they are they told him Mohamed, we want to see America and also realize that a lot while he was sitting by the rule of law, he split the moon into June, he split the moon into two as a miracle for them. But even after witnessing such a great miracle, they said that this is some form of sorcery, some form of magic, and they refuse to believe in Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but the minute this great event is great incident took place, Allah azza wa jal declared something in the noble Koran Katara but isn't it one shot called karma? The hour has grown near ie the day of the AMA

00:04:30--> 00:04:49

Doomsday, Judgement Day has grown near and the moon has been left asunder. The moon has been split into two. Now when it was behind him, which Allah declared this 1437 years ago. What did he say? The hour has drawn me.

00:04:51--> 00:05:00

So where do you think he'll be? 1400 odd years after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So no doubt we are indeed very

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

Close to the day of the AMA Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Now coming back to the Hadith, he prophesied that towards the latter stages as we get closer and closer to the day of the AMA, you will see a lot of dissent you will see a lot of different opinions on one.

00:05:17--> 00:05:24

Now to understand this very clearly, we need to first talk a little bit about the love about difference of opinion.

00:05:25--> 00:05:34

What is if the love is if they laugh aloud, can we differ with one another? So we need to understand what if the Love is a little bit in Charlottetown

00:05:35--> 00:05:45

if the love in the sense we have a difference of opinion within the religion and outside of the religion outside of the religion there is no harm Why?

00:05:46--> 00:05:58

Because we are all not created the same way we all create a different Yeah, the way you think is different the way I think is different. My favorite color is black, your favorite color, maybe purple, maybe even pink.

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

How many Apple fans in the house? Show of hands?

00:06:05--> 00:06:07

I raise my hands very high.

00:06:08--> 00:06:10

Apple uses Samsung.

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

Mashallah not many

00:06:15--> 00:06:19

don't go for the note seven go for the Apple iPhone seven Chava.

00:06:20--> 00:06:45

But you know, what if I were to stop the talk now and if we were to start a debate as to what is better, iOS versus Android, I think we can go on until evening in shallow dialogue debating iOS vs. Android, the ones will love Android we say we love Android because Android is so open we can share files easily we don't have to go through iTunes this that that have all the pros to say. But at the end of the day, Android is Android.

00:06:47--> 00:06:49

Your emoji suck.

00:06:50--> 00:06:55

Ugly image Have you seen the Samsung image? I don't even know what is a smiley on that.

00:06:58--> 00:07:01

Come on. Look at the apple emoji Mashallah beautiful.

00:07:06--> 00:07:27

And we even recently replaced the pistol with a water pistol. iOS emoji, right? So we can go and debating and the you know, the Samsung S seven and the seven edge users who say our camera is the best and the selfie camera it applies a layer of foundation for us. We don't have to apply makeup. But the iPhone doesn't do that. Well, the iPhone is genuine.

00:07:30--> 00:07:31

We don't apply makeup.

00:07:33--> 00:08:00

It shows how beautiful we are in a genuine way. So we can go on debating. There is a difference of opinion in this regard. And those who are hardcore Android fans will never ever agree to what we have to say. And those who are hardcore iOS will never agree to what the Android fans have to say. This is a difference of opinion outside of religion. And the Koran or the Sunnah prohibits this, it doesn't, we are free to differ you're free to use Samsung and I'm free to use apple or whatever other device I want to use.

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

But as for the love within the religion.

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

Now this you can differ

00:08:09--> 00:08:31

not by the fundamental principles, but in the branches. Yes, you can differ fundamental principles in the sense we can't have a difference of opinion as to whether Allah subhanho wa Taala is one or two, there is no difference of opinion, can we have a difference of opinion as to whether Allah subhanho wa Taala is one of many, Allah says in the Quran, we'll move along.

00:08:33--> 00:08:56

The chapter is closed. There is no further discussion in that regard. Allah is one there's no difference of opinion in this regard. But as for the branches, like say, inshallah, for example, in regard to follow in regard to fifth jurisprudence, we can have a difference of opinion, but the difference of opinion has to be backed by the Quran or the authentics who know the problems are a lot more.

00:08:57--> 00:09:27

You can just come up and say, You know what, I think this is hella just because I think it is harder. No, you have to have evidence from the Quran and the Sunnah to say that this is halal or haram. And this difference of opinion this is the love is not something that stemmed just yesterday or day before yesterday. No, it existed even during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. There's a famous incident where once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he commanded a group of his companions with one Medina elementary marine

00:09:28--> 00:09:30

to go to a particular location

00:09:32--> 00:10:00

to go to a tribe called the new Corolla. This incident is known as the incident of my new Corolla. He told them to go to venue for eight hours now a Jewish tribe, okay. He told them specific instructions, basically, he told them, go and pray serasa Bye bye. Very clear, explicit instructions on the progress of this group of companions. They left and what happened was halfway through the journey, the time for serata acid was about to end

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

As you all know, serasa you can combine rotten acid with mercury. I mean, you have to press rather acid or you're going to miss rasa. So they stopped and they had a discussion. There were two opinions raining on the table. One group of the companions, they said, the supervisor along with a very wisdom explicitly told us go to Bora Bora and press rasa. And that's what we're going to do. The other group of companions, they said, Well, what the professor Lyon Islam meant was that he wanted us to rush. He wanted us to hurry and may could make it to bend over and over serasa but here we are, we haven't made it to the nucleus of Surat, Nasser, and Allah says in the, in the salata,

00:10:36--> 00:10:44

kanatal Mini Nikita Buddha, indeed Salah has been prescribed upon the believers that appointed times, so we must stop and offer our Salah.

00:10:45--> 00:10:59

So two groups, one group stopped and prayed the other group they went to bonagura and they offer Surat Lhasa once they come back to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam they put forth the issue to the professor nihilism Yasser Allah, this is what happened.

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

Now what do you think the problems that have been relevant even said it might have said, Do you think this will wise allies embrace it, you are wrong, you are right. Or you avoid you are this you are off the main hedge and you are this you are happy and you

00:11:13--> 00:11:16

getting the processor license or something like that? You know what the

00:11:18--> 00:11:23

both of you are correct. It's just how you interpreted my command.

00:11:24--> 00:12:03

A group of you interpreted my command as being go to the new Ford and Chrysler processor you did. So you are right. And those of you who interpreted my command as being that you wanted that I you expected me to say that you should rush to be an operator and pray, you stop and pray because obviously Allah says in the Quran, the ayah that I just resigned, did you stop and you pray, you are also right. And coming back to the companions, they differed Yes, on their way. But did that deter them from doing what the professor niacin wanted them to do? Now, today we differ. I'm not talking about outside of the religion, we differ within the religion and we despise one another, we hate one

00:12:03--> 00:12:46

another. We are at the necks of one another, the Sahaba they differ, but at the end of the day they went and they executed what the prophet sallallaahu salam wanted them to do. This shows their unity, even though there was a difference of opinion. They differ ideas, but there was always unity. Look at them. Now this is a question that some of you might have. Now you were talking about the 73 sects. Do you perhaps think that the modalities are also included in these sects? The method of Abu hanifa is one, the method with mama Shaka is one, the method of mmamoloko Himalaya is one the method of Imam Ahmed Mohammed is one No, because the demands remember, they never differ upon the

00:12:46--> 00:13:04

principles like I said, Never upon the fundamental principles but rather in regard to the branches. So when you look at them as is just not for mother, if there were many other motherhood as well, it's just that the format that he was the only mother hips that were preserved until today, and they are prominent, but there were other methods as well. We're talking about the medallion upon

00:13:06--> 00:13:14

the medallion that that did not differ with the fundamental principles, they are all considered within the gemera within the

00:13:15--> 00:13:20

the method of Marco hanifa because obviously Marco hanifa was the most senior of them all. He was from the adults.

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

I'm from Abu hanifa and during time from Abu hanifa Rahim Allah we had Mr. Malik Rahim Allah who was known as Mr. Medina Mr. Malik, a very great scholar, and the year that Imam Shafi Rama Hawa passed away I'm sorry the year the Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah passed away. Remember Shafi Rahim Allah was born. He was a student of Imam Malik Rahim Allah.

00:13:43--> 00:13:50

And then after Imam Shafi comes about among the Hanban, Rahim Allah who was the student of Imam Shafi mamula

00:13:52--> 00:14:12

now you have to understand that these four imams did not go about telling people Oh, you know what, I'm planning to establish a method. So I want you all to follow my method, you know, like my Facebook page, subscribe to my YouTube channel, and follow me on Instagram and Snapchat. We would say so, and by the way, you can like my facebook page if you want.

00:14:13--> 00:14:31

But they didn't. They didn't. They went on with their teaching and after they passed away their students, they established the method and then people started to follow the momentum it was from the acceptance of Allah subhanho wa Taala that Damodar he became prevalent widely prevalent.

00:14:33--> 00:14:44

I'm sure here the bulk of the Malaysians following mama chef arugula. Yes. How many follows mama chef in the house Hands up, Masha Allah, Masha, Allah, Allah.

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

The most widely followed by them around the world is the mother of Abu hanifa. And then you have a humble mmamoloko mahalo these four mudarabah prevalent around the world. But you know what, they do have a difference of opinion but they differ

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

In a respectable manner.

00:15:03--> 00:15:19

Can I ask you? What do you think is the opinion of mama Sheffield, Oklahoma, in regard to ablution? That when you perform your ablution and if you were to touch a non Muharram, beat even your spouse, what happens to your widow? Is it nullified or not? Yes or no?

00:15:20--> 00:15:25

Yes nullify right? Do you know what the opinion from Abu hanifa Rahim Allah is in this regard?

00:15:26--> 00:15:27

No.

00:15:28--> 00:15:54

Is there like a slight difference of opinion? No. chalk and cheese completely two different things. Mama hanifa is saying no, your mama Shaka, you comes later after him says yes. It's just how they interpreted the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and each scholar has his own evidence, his own logical arguments to prove and back his statement. And you might wonder, okay, if there's a difference of opinion, who am I to follow?

00:15:55--> 00:16:02

Who am I to follow? And do I have to follow a method? Do I have to follow a method? Technically, we don't have any

00:16:04--> 00:16:09

state that you must follow. The method was marble hanifa. You must follow the method but

00:16:10--> 00:16:50

we don't have a Heidi. But if you are not a scholar, if you are not a minister, he is a person who deduces rulings in the Quran and the Sunnah. And today, trust me, however big a scholar may be. I think no scholar in the world would ever say proudly that I am a Mujahid because the scholars of the past they were giants will lie, giants, they have so much of knowledge of a firmly grounded in knowledge. Those of us who are students, those of us who are not scholars, those of us who are not mature he don't it is upon us to follow a scholar that we trust. And we are not supposed to jump from scholar to scholar photoshopping cherry picking.

00:16:51--> 00:16:58

What do we do sometimes we want to get a fatwa, we go to scholar, a chef, what do you think about this matter?

00:16:59--> 00:17:43

The chef says after checking, you know, his books, the Quran and the Sunnah, he comes back and says, Well, according to me, my opinion is that this is how long it is not permissible. Okay, okay. And then this person goes to scholar B. He says how long scholar c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q? And finally, scholar who says no, I think it is permissible amercia law and then for this person Scalia, who is the best scholar, he is my chef Mashallah is the Mufti of the town Mashallah the other scholars are all dismissed. Why because this person was not going to check what the foreigner the Sunnah is saying, but rather this person wants to follow his or her whims and desires, this person

00:17:43--> 00:17:46

wants to somehow make this issue Hello.

00:17:47--> 00:17:57

So this is photoshopping This is not following the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Allah Allah Islam but instead following one's own whims and desires May Allah Subhana Medina save us all. So it is upon us to stick

00:17:58--> 00:18:23

to a scholar that we trust. if you for example, trusty mama Sheffield akima hola and as we have chosen the medevac mama Shafi Rahim Allah you stick to the mandible mama Shakira, Hema Hola. And we should also maintain a balance where there should be no fanaticism, where we are so obsessed with the madhhab. You know, there were times in the past, we are followers of Imam Shafi would not marry the followers of Abu hanifa.

00:18:24--> 00:19:06

There were times in the past where the followers of Abu hanifa would not marry the followers of mama Shafi. We just mentioned that all these mega considered within the Gema, they all headed towards the same destination, there are like four paths leading to the same destination. And for those who say that we don't need a madhhab when it is like you are the edge of a jungle, and you have four clean, beautiful paths leading towards one destination. And you think you know what, I don't want to go down the path that everybody is going let me cut my own path. It's going to be an extremely cumbersome task, you would have to spend years and years studying, studying the hardest lesson I'm

00:19:06--> 00:19:07

studying also refactoring

00:19:08--> 00:19:46

the principles affect the principles of jurisprudence, you would have to cover all these areas, and then start afresh in terms of deducing rules from the Quran and the Sunnah. And still yet you would have to follow the scholars of Hadith for example, if not, you would have to start classifying Heidi on your own as to find out whether it is authentic or whether it is weak. If you are not going to follow any scholar and if you're only going to do it by yourself, you would have a lot of work ahead of you but instead, the scholars of the past our serafina sila, our pious predecessors, have done huge services and contributions to the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala. They have made the path easy

00:19:46--> 00:19:57

for us, it is upon us to pray for them that Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses each and every one of them and we stick to following a scholar that we trust. This is in regard to the mother in regard to a difference of opinion.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

The scholars of the past they differ in

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

I'm a chef and like I said he deferred, but he did not go at the necks of the scholars or the students of marble hanifa. And so you are wrong and you are deviant. And you are this and you are that like how we do today. Today, you go online and you say, you see these people known as quote unquote, keyboard warriors. They spend a little time online, read a few articles and they start bashing the scholars who have spent years and years seeking knowledge. They start bashing people, they start branding people, Allahu Akbar.

00:20:28--> 00:21:06

This is very much close to the ideology of a certain group that was prophesied by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said a long winding road he was in them said that towards the latter stages, there will be a group, there will be a people who will come from the east, and they will read the Koran. They will read the Koran and that is known as a fortress around lines with lines of these words, they will read the Koran beautifully. They will read the Koran beautifully and for everything, they will prove it with the Koran, but the Quran will not go beyond their collarbones. In other words, the Quran will just be on the tip of their tongue. It will not enter into their

00:21:06--> 00:21:19

hearts. Their minds will not absorb the Koran, and they will pass through the deen like an arrow whizzing through its prey. When you shoot an arrow, it visitors to its prey, they will pass through the dean.

00:21:20--> 00:22:02

And this group of individuals they're known as the bridge. The bridge is the name stems from the word Harajuku who knows what hora de means in the Arabic language. hora approach means go out exit. Now I don't want you to exit approach means to exit courage a means to exit to leave so far each because they have exited from the bulk of the Muslims May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all. They go around branding people they brand the Muslim moon as kuffaar this takfiri ideology. They have rebelled against the rulers, they fight the Muslim moon you see many groups today that fit this description. And this group reared its head during the time of the Sahaba.

00:22:04--> 00:22:28

After the fitting of Rama, Rama Rama Rama was assassinated or tomorrow the last one who was assassinated there was this group and from that day onwards, they're taken on different names, they have different names they won't necessarily come and say you know what, Mashallah Let me introduce myself I am from the average nobody's gonna come and say that they come up with different names, but they are by extension part and parcel of this group may Allah subhanho wa Taala save us for

00:22:32--> 00:22:53

so many brothers and sisters in Islam having highlighted all of this let's move quickly to the characteristic that I wanted to touch on let's touch on one or two characteristics of Luciana to Gemma of this particular one sect that will enter gender inshallah you know what I was just going to touch on one characteristic the main characteristic inshallah

00:22:56--> 00:23:03

it is clearly understood that this particular Gemma, the saved, said they

00:23:04--> 00:23:20

was pretty well edited. And this is what I want to touch on in Sharma university will guarantee that they are a people of balance and moderation. They are a people of balance and moderation.

00:23:21--> 00:23:22

I will make us

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

stay to the noble for an

00:23:26--> 00:23:26

hour and

00:23:36--> 00:23:49

thus we made you adjust nation, a balanced nation, a moderate nation, Allah subhanho wa Taala has made us an oma that is balanced just and moderate.

00:23:52--> 00:23:57

Scholars have commented in regard to this particular verse and stated that

00:23:58--> 00:24:00

being balanced,

00:24:01--> 00:24:36

being balanced is to be at the farthest point away from the two extremes. You have two poles, you look at any matter, there's always a spectrum, you have two extremes being balanced to be from the moment and masaba from the balanced nation is to be as far away as possible from the two extremes. So you have two extremes at two ends. You're supposed to be as far away as possible from both the extremes. What does that mean? If you're going to be as far as possible from both extremes, but does that mean you are right

00:24:37--> 00:24:38

at the center, you're in the middle.

00:24:39--> 00:24:59

You're in the middle. This is what is meant by being balanced. And then they go on to state that both extremes hold nothing but destruction. You go to either one of the two extremes, they hold nothing but destruction you're supposed to be right in the middle. And this is the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we have a famous Hadith

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

Mercado de Vaca Anima Muslim rahima Houma la Abdullah now I'm gonna answer the last one who he states and innovation goes along the lines of these words. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam found out that the Bible, also the long line, who was fasting consecutively every single day, and he was praying every single night. No sooner the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam found out about this, he addresses Agha live in Amritsar for the long run with regard to this, and he educates Abdullah bin amrinder As for the long line, who not to continue the way he is doing not too fast every single day and not to pray the entire night every single night. He goes on to say sir Alan

00:25:39--> 00:25:56

whining very, very seldom that your eyes will feel tired, your body will feel tired, and you will not be able to continue and he said a long while it was Ramadan to say that your eyes have a right over you. Yeah, Abdullah, your body has a right over you, your wife has a right over you.

00:25:58--> 00:26:32

And then instead of unwinding when you send them kept off the narration by saying it will suffice for you too fast, three days a month, three days a month, because a good deed is multiplied 10 times but Allah subhanho wa Taala. So if you fast three days a month that would equate you fasting the entire month. And if you fast three days a month throughout the year, that is equivalent to you fasting the entire year Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you the reward of fasting the entire year. All you have to do is fast three days a month.

00:26:34--> 00:26:37

Look at the balance teachings of the Prophet Solomon while he said

00:26:39--> 00:26:42

because every blessing that you enjoy,

00:26:44--> 00:27:02

there is a right that you need to fulfill. If Allah Subhana what Allah has blessed you with, well, then you're not supposed to squander that, well, you're not supposed to waste that wealth. You have rights to fulfill in regard to that, well, you're supposed to give out charity you're supposed to secure a good life with that wealth in this world as well as the hereafter May Allah subhanahu wa taala bless us all. I mean,

00:27:04--> 00:27:27

if Allah subhana wa Jalla has blessed you with a spouse, then there are rights that you need to fulfill in regard to your spouse. If Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed you with a child. Then you have you have rights to fulfill in regard to your children. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all with children, bless those who do not have children with children. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless those who do not have righteous spouses with beautiful and righteous spouses I mean

00:27:29--> 00:27:39

so many respected brothers and sisters in Islam, it is upon us to fulfill the rights of all of these blessings in a balanced way as per the teachings of the prophets of Allah and even

00:27:40--> 00:28:29

when you look at Aberdeen, Aberdeen is so beautiful. Talk about divorce, for example. Okay, divorce is a taboo subject. Yeah. But do you know that in Christianity, it is actually very difficult to pronounce a divorce, or to resort to divorce? Do you know in Judaism, that if divorce is pronounced, there is no way at all for the two spouses to get back together. say if they're having second thoughts after pronouncing the divorce, there is no way for them to get back together. It is such a rigid subject. But Allah Subhana Medina has blessed us all. Even though divorce is a taboo subject. Alliance limited has placed divorce as a last resort for us. To spouses they get together they are

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

in a marital bond. And as counselors we would always advise the two spouses never ever to resort to divorce unless there's no other option. You're supposed to invest in your marriage as much as possible. Because after all, our marital bonds are supposed to last forever and ever for an eternity, not just in this life. But until infinity we don't say till death do us part. But our marital bonds are supposed to last forever and ever. I'm sure the brothers must be thinking oh my God,

00:28:59--> 00:29:09

forever. Do I have to live with her in the next world also. That was over this world class. I'm looking at the celestial maidens of gentlemen.

00:29:11--> 00:29:15

know our medical bonds are supposed to last for an eternity forever and ever.

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

Because the matchmaker

00:29:19--> 00:29:24

was not a marriage conference, the matchmaker was not some marriage broker.

00:29:25--> 00:29:26

Who was the matchmaker?

00:29:27--> 00:29:33

A loss of Hannah Medina, your marriage. My dear brother, my dear sister,

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

was sealed off in the heavens and the matchmaker was none other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. So just imagine such a beautiful marriage. It has to last for an eternity and you are supposed to invest in your marriage. But say two spouses are not compatible from one another. They are finding it very difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. They're finding it difficult to agree upon matters. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed the

00:30:00--> 00:30:11

As a last resort, like a fire escape to a house, would you enter your house using the fire escape or through the main dome? When do you use the fire escape unless you're up to some mischief.

00:30:12--> 00:30:42

Or if there is a tragedy or calamity like your fire is bad that your house is burning, you would use the fire escape. So if there is no way out in that particular marriage, then the two spouses are supposed to resort to divorce. These are the beautiful teachings of Islam, the balanced teachings of Islam. From this we know from whichever angle you look at the teachings of the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, or the teachings of Islam you would find that every single teaching is balanced, just and moderate.

00:30:45--> 00:30:46

We have

00:30:48--> 00:30:54

another narration, a famous Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam by the name hombre de la mano.

00:30:56--> 00:31:00

He states in the nation goes along the lines of these words, that

00:31:01--> 00:31:04

whenever he used to be with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:31:06--> 00:31:45

he would remember Jenna, he would remember paradise, he would remember the admonishments the teachings of the prophets of Allah while he when he was sitting, but whenever he would go back home, spend time with his family, his children, whenever he's busy with his business, he used to forget about the teachings of the Prophet Elias and forget, in a sense, don't dismiss it, but his mind would be preoccupied with other things. So this was a big concern for him. So one day he takes this concern and goes to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam Yasser Allah, whenever I am with you, I remember Jenna, it's as if gender is in front of my eyes. I remember jahannam and I am filled with

00:31:45--> 00:32:05

taqwa, the fear and the consciousness of Allah Subhana Medina, but when I go back home, I tend to become preoccupied with other things. Why else for my wife, and this many brothers and sisters in Islam was because the Sahaba Panetta had an image of mine, they loved Allah and His Messenger thought a long while ago that he was sent them so much.

00:32:06--> 00:32:07

They love

00:32:08--> 00:32:10

them so much analyze division.

00:32:11--> 00:32:22

There were some competitors with professionalism, they will be seated at home and suddenly they will get up and rush to the gathering of the novice that is just to look at the face of Mohammed Salah Ludmila,

00:32:23--> 00:32:59

even an Omar rhodiola one a famous companion, okay, the son of a loved one obviously. He loved them so much. And he he was an ardent follower of the Sunnah of the prophet SAW that. One day he was traveling with one of his companions in the middle of the desert. Okay? They were passing on a particular path. While he was riding, suddenly he ducks he was riding his horse and he suddenly ducks. Now the companion was traveling with him observes this and asks him Yeah, I saw you talking, but there wasn't anything for you to duck. Why did you talk

00:33:00--> 00:33:08

to someone who then explains once I was traveling with the Messenger of Allah said a long line that you've already said. And at that time, there was

00:33:09--> 00:33:30

a tree with a dry branch and overhanging branch. The Prophet said a long while evangelism saw the branch and he doesn't know I'm traveling. Sometime after the proper size, the tree is no longer there. But I am ducking even though the tree is not there to follow the son of my beloved Prophet Mohammed son a long while and

00:33:32--> 00:33:34

after the demise of the Prophet sallahu wa sallam, he

00:33:36--> 00:33:53

would take his horse, he would walk around the streets of Medina like a madman, he would walk around the streets of Medina say, How I wish that my feet would touch where the hooves of the animal of the messenger of, of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam touched upon,

00:33:55--> 00:34:01

however wish that my feet would touch where the holes are the Messenger of Allah said along with anybody who said I was any more touched.

00:34:03--> 00:34:07

You get the love that they had for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa and he was sending

00:34:09--> 00:34:12

another incident comes to my mind, and this was

00:34:13--> 00:34:15

during the Battle of Badr, if I'm not mistaken.

00:34:16--> 00:34:47

As you all know, the Battle of butter was a decisive battle in the history of Islam. Why? Because the Muslim moon they were outnumbered, we were just around 300 odd was the pagans, the Kufa they were 1000 strong, roughly 1000 strong, and they were armed to the teeth, they had weaponry artillery, they had animals they had steeds horses, cameras, all the works basically was we had very little weapons very little animals. We were equipped

00:34:48--> 00:34:59

by the help of philosopher Hannah Montana came down resulting in an astounding victory for the Muslim moon. But before the battle what happened was the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was reading

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

roles of the Muslims,

00:35:02--> 00:35:08

as was generally the practice of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was making sure that they were all aligned in robes.

00:35:09--> 00:35:46

So he was going around telling them his toes to straighten your own stick straight heroes, he was teaching them discipline, he was the best teacher the best role model the best guy Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam please remember, I mentioned his beautiful name. So he was going around straightening the rose is the who is the who, as he was going, what happened was, there was a companion by the name so why even overseer of the loved one was carefully observing the promise that one while he when he was said, now so what are the long one he knew that this was a crucial juncture we are about to go into battle. He noticed that the professor Islam come and the ropes that is them

00:35:46--> 00:36:07

had a stick in his hand and he was aligning the rows with that particular stick. What's the word of the Lord one who does now is that he intentionally moves forward, he intentionally moves forward and he is now not in alignment with the row. He moves forward in such a way that his chest and belly was protruding.

00:36:09--> 00:36:12

When he had a very sharp eyesight, he observed so what was he

00:36:14--> 00:36:36

and he makes his way to survive for the long line and with his stick, he lightly lightly taps the chest of survivor on the alarm and tells him yes Awad stone is to stay in alignment with euro stay in alignment with euro straighten euro. No sooner the sake of the professor is in touch the Justice award or the loved one. He cries out.

00:36:38--> 00:36:47

You have heard me and I wish to return here. And I want redemption in the sense I want to return

00:36:48--> 00:36:56

retribution. That's a hammer in one night I'll imagine my work astounded what's going on with someone?

00:36:57--> 00:37:07

The problems that I listened to barely touched him. And what's he saying that he wants to retaliate and whatnot. At this crucial juncture. We're about to go into Latin what's wrong with what's gotten into me?

00:37:08--> 00:37:40

Now so well for the last one who kept insisting Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the most just of all human beings, the most balanced of all human beings. He immediately looks at the world or the above mine home and says if that is what you wish, you can have it and he gives the stick to so what are the long one? So what are the long one I knew he was bad bodied at that time in the sense he had no upper gun. He looks at the professor and SLM Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had an upper garment on him

00:37:41--> 00:37:55

and he may even have had his armor on him. So whether the loved one will listen to me attentively brothers and sisters, he looks at an officer nihilism and says Yasuda law if it is to be a fair retribution. You need to be better about it as well.

00:37:57--> 00:38:00

You need to remove your upper gun

00:38:01--> 00:38:16

personal license lot of money ready we said was the most just of all human beings. He said fine yeah. So what if that is what you wish and now he removes his upper garment and exposes his blessing upper body Mohammed Sunderland more hatred and USA.

00:38:18--> 00:38:38

No sooner the profits of alumni, they do it we send them exposes upper body. So there'll be a lot one who drops the stick to the ground. And he runs to Mohammed said about my lady, we send them he hugs Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he starts to kiss the chest and the stomach of the profits that alone might end up missing

00:38:39--> 00:39:05

the sort of life that a lot of it originally was looking at. So there'll be a long line when he asked me so why, why why why are you doing this? So why don't your loved one when he says the other sort of law. I know the crucial juncture that I am in, I'm about to go into battle. And I know the odds are against us and I may not come back after that battle. And I want your skin your skin to be the last thing that my lips have touched.

00:39:07--> 00:39:17

Look at the love that they had for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Can anyone else claim to love Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam because the Sahaba mind, they know

00:39:18--> 00:39:33

him so much. And this is why 100 Allah one, he goes to the Prophet sallallaahu Salama, why am I being engrossed with other thoughts? I want to be in that same state of mind as I am when I'm with you.

00:39:34--> 00:39:35

And then a supervisor.

00:39:37--> 00:39:41

Teachers humble out of the alarm, I mean, something very profound. It doesn't mean

00:39:43--> 00:39:50

if you were to stay upon the same state of mind as you are when you are with me.

00:39:51--> 00:40:00

The angels would descend from the heavens and start greeting you as you walk down the streets. They would start greeting

00:40:00--> 00:40:42

As you lie on your bed long, but rather humble, there is a time for this and there is a time for that. There is a time for this and there is a time for that. When you are with your family, you're supposed to spend time with your family. When you are with your business, you're supposed to spend time looking after your business according to the teachings of the sooner the proper salon is. When you are say at a conference you're supposed to focus, seek knowledge and benefit as much as possible. When you're in the marketplace. Focus on purchasing your marketing supplies. When you are perhaps playing a game. Maybe you are involved in some recreational activity focus on that as long

00:40:42--> 00:40:46

as it is within the guidelines of Sharia. Look at the balanced teachings of Islam.

00:40:47--> 00:41:31

The Quran or the Sunnah expect you to be inserted into your entire life, the Quran, now the sooner they do not expect you to be in such that your entire life. But instead you're supposed to be a righteous individual. And this can be achieved through your intentions, even the intimate moments that you spend with your spouse, Allahu Akbar. Look at how beautiful Islam is, even the intimate moments that you spend with your spouse. Those are pleasurable moments. If you intend that you're doing it for the sake of Allah, you're doing it in a halal way, staying away from that which is how long even the intimate moments are called rewards the officer is Allah, they will be rewarded but

00:41:31--> 00:41:33

Allah subhanho wa Taala amazing mind blowing.

00:41:34--> 00:42:03

Even that is an act of Eva, if your intentions are proper, you're going to sleep if you intend to Allah, I'm going to sleep rejuvenate myself to wake up to wake up. Even your sleep will be considered an act of rebellion. Every single second that you're spending here if your intention is proper every single second, you're being rewarded by Allah Subhana Mota. This is how balanced our Deen is. And this is the balance that the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam kept on highlighting in his Hadith that we are supposed to follow.

00:42:05--> 00:42:07

One of our setups when asylum is reported to have said

00:42:09--> 00:42:23

that every matter has two poles. Every matter has two poles. two extremes, if you were to hold on to one of the two extremes, the other would become skewed.

00:42:24--> 00:43:07

Say for example, you have a plank, okay? If you were to go to either one of the two extremes, what would happen? The other side would go up yes or no, there would be no balance. But on the other hand, if you were to hold the middle, if you were to hold the middle, what would happen? There would be balanced balance would prevail. And balance is key. As they say life is like riding a bicycle. Night is like riding a bicycle it's all about balance you need to strive to achieve that balance when it comes to eating. What does the professor lie listen him said do not all worried he's a lot enemies report broke said divide your stomach into three paths. One third for solids, one third for

00:43:07--> 00:43:20

liquids and one third for air there is balanced in that as well in terms of spending spend in a balanced way. Allah Subhana Medina, he states in the Noble Quran and this is an idea that highlights this balance.

00:43:22--> 00:43:23

What are the themes?

00:43:37--> 00:43:39

What are the FEMA Atacama who

00:43:40--> 00:44:18

seek the abode of the Hereafter, the eternal abode of the Hereafter, which Allah Subhana Medina in a sense, seek the abode of the hereafter with that which Allah Subhana Medina has given you seek the abode of the hereafter with that which Allah has given you with the wealth that Allah has given you with the help of us Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you with the time that Abbas Panama's Allah has given you seek the eternal abode of the hereafter. And then Allah says, When attends now See you back, I mean, Antonia, and do not forget your share of this word. Aloha.

00:44:20--> 00:44:28

You're not supposed to strip yourself completely away from this world and only focus on the hereafter. Look at the beautiful dryer the professor has taught us.

00:44:32--> 00:44:33

Warfield

00:44:35--> 00:44:36

walked in.

00:44:43--> 00:44:59

He was the best in this world, the best in the Hereafter, and save us from the fire of gentlemen. The best in this world in the sense scholars explain. A good spouse, a good house, a good life, a good vehicle, a good social standing good work a good job. All

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

That is encapsulated in freedonia Hasson wolfin

00:45:05--> 00:45:27

give us the best in the next world. Jenna, the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala the good things of Jenna all of this is encapsulated in philosophical work in an urban now and save us from the blazing Inferno of Jan, this is the balance that we need to strike. Some of us today. The minute we become religious, we don't smile.

00:45:29--> 00:45:30

We don't smile.

00:45:31--> 00:45:32

We are all rigid

00:45:33--> 00:45:37

in tequila, tequila, Phil, don't mind.

00:45:39--> 00:45:42

Don't mind why even I think this is an Islamic conference. You're not supposed to love

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

the origin.

00:45:46--> 00:45:51

Or we go about with the Haram haram haram haram haram this

00:45:55--> 00:46:21

in him he explained that we just Halloween and Halloween in a Holiday Inn around the corner was the opposite Alison. Priscilla would not go about every single time harsh Lee admonishing people you know there was once an instance when he said allamani when I observed a young companion looking towards a female companion who was beautiful the professor I listened and did not go and pluck his eyes out

00:46:23--> 00:47:04

you know the proselytize them did his align Islam playfully move this cheek away playfully went up to him and moved his cheek away. his allies admonished him about jahannam and you're going to you know what in jahannam and this and that he did not do such things but sometimes we maybe we don't do it in the offline world but online he you must go and read the comments in the online world. Sometimes they look at the individual you think oh, this person is like a pussycat here. But online, he's a lion like a tiger, you know, typing away, he's got his armor on. All of his weaponry is typing away bashing people with hate comments and whatnot.

00:47:06--> 00:47:10

The professor and he said in his report website, Montana, you may not be

00:47:13--> 00:47:36

the one who believes in Allah and the Last Day let him speak a good word or remain silent. Now these people say oh, the professor license said speak a good word, not type four. I'm typing away. So let me type of a by extension, speaking includes typing as well. If you cannot type a good word in this, keep silent. Perhaps you don't like the thing, then scroll and move away.

00:47:38--> 00:48:02

Don't say things, negative things, toxic things, because the minute you become an individual who spurts out, negative and toxic things, you consume yourself from within and you destroy yourself from within, and you destroy the people around you. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a balanced individual and he was an individual who used to radiate positivity.

00:48:03--> 00:48:32

He was such a positive individual, he had this aura of positivity around him. And that's why the companions would love to be by him, Mohammed said along while he was there, because whenever they were with him, it was as if they were plugged into some huge source of positivity, goodness and happiness. Whenever they were with him. They were happy It was as if their worries had vanished away. We should all strive to become such individuals because we are emulating him so Allah while you

00:48:33--> 00:49:06

get rid of all these negative and toxic feelings, don't judge others don't. We know the comment bad about others. You're not backbite about others. Allah says Lavanya Johan Lavina mannucci tiny bouquet zero men have been in a balcony. Stay away from thinking bad about others gossiping about others backbiting about others. What does Allah say about backbiting that you hate blah, blah he made them with any one of you like to consume the flesh of his or her dead brother or sister for Kenny? You would detest it, you would hate it.

00:49:08--> 00:49:46

So let's become individuals who are balanced, who strive to be part of this Gemini, the Gemini that we are talking to you that we were talking about the Gemini that is designed to go to general to go to Paradise, may Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all from the saved set. Please say I mean May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all from the ones who follow the authentic teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah opened the doors of understanding for all of us, and just as how unitrust here in Putrajaya. Allah subhanho wa Taala unites each and every one of us with the beloved obita Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa

00:49:46--> 00:49:53

sallam in the beautiful gardens of Paradise. I mean, we're Africa and in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. Just like in Milan, okay.
