It takes a little bit of time for
the comments to come in through
Mashallah, from the lamb Good, good. Is that in the head? Stay safe. Place your trust in Allah. Don't forget to wash your hands.
All right, let's commence.
So this this series titled as Sahih al Bukhari
it was from the practice of the scholars of the past to have fell apart to have circles of knowledge, discussing the words of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala. He was saying
At times, it would be another question dealing with something related to acleda something related to fit something related to tarbiyah you know, spiritual rejuvenation and so on and so forth. So in this in this series, it's going to be a weekly series in Sha loudhailer.
So basically every week around this time
I hope to be discussing a narration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam from the book of iwama Bihari Rahim Allah so we're going to be keeping ourselves busy with the most authentic book after the Quran. And that is the compilation of Imam Al Bukhari. Rahim Allah. So somebody wants to know what this session is about. This session is a series on the book of Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah. So on a weekly basis, we will be discussing a hadith that has been recorded in the compile ation of Imam Al Bukhari and that particular compilation is known as the most authentic book after the noble Koran.
So to start things off this session and the next one is going to be two introductory sessions, where we will learn about the mammal Bihari rahimullah. A few distinctive features in regards to the book of mammal Bihari rockin line once we are done with that, we will delve into the content which is the Hadith so on a weekly basis we will pick a hadith from the Hadith that have been compiled in a compiled version of mumble Bihari Rahim Allah we will discuss the Hadith we will deduce we will
try to deduce and glean as many lessons as possible from each of these narrations with the help of Allah inshallah Tada. So we have to understand the importance of the words of our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So we have another commenter coming in so from Mauritius from Philippines, Masha Masha, Allah accepted from us, it's it's so beautiful to be able to connect to so many people.
So whenever possible just to drop in a comment as to where you are from. And maybe after the session now read through it. And even whilst doing the session we can discuss and and these sessions are going to be interactive. Eventually, we can have a few q&a sessions as well, where you can post your questions and if possible, try to answer it then and they're failing, we can look at addressing them in the upcoming sessions in Sharla. And on Facebook, the session will anyway be posted on my page as well. So you can watch it later on. And as for Instagram, it should be on my page for a period of time in Shark Tank. So coming back to the lesson, it can be distracting at times. But anyway, it's
nice. I like to interact with your martial law This is a really good opportunity to interact with so many people. This love the hearts coming in love all the love that's coming in. May Allah bless you all. I mean,
so it's important. How regular Will this be every week inshallah Brother Brother Rasheed, every week insha Allah with the help of a lot hope to be doing this on a weekly basis. So we'll have an episode every week and most probably around this time.
All right. So now we have to understand the importance of the words of our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam. So we have to understand that he said a lot while he really was the lamb does not speak out of his own desires. He does not speak out of his own desires. Now you and I, we speak out about own desires. You know, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not speak out of his own desires, and what is the proof for this? the ayat and sort of imagine the Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, and because of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam why my tech line in house in Houma. Illa Huey you heard
that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not speak out of his own desires in regards to the deen but he speaks in Houma. Illa what you have, it is divine revelation that has been revealed unto him. It is divine revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we also see this in the Sunnah. For example, we have a hadith that has been recorded by Imam Ahmed my whole life i'm not mistaken. A man comes to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he asks the Prophet, Yasuda land the narration goes along the lines of these words, which of places is the most beloved of places unto Allah subhanho that does anybody know the answer to the question which of places is the most beloved of places unto
Allah subhanho wa Taala and which of places is the most despised and disliked by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now at that juncture, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not respond. He went on to tell this man, let me ask gibreel Elisa that was so from this video.
Understand, the prophet does not speak out of his own desires. So when jabril is led to Islam comes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Messenger of Allah He asked gibreel and Islam
gibreel Allah plus lamb now says Let me ask allies of Sabrina Elisa to Salaam. He asks a loss of Hannah Montana and then informs the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And for those of you who are wondering, wondering in regards to the answer to this question, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then says, the most beloved of places under a law are the masajid at the houses of Allah, and how unfortunate that we have been deprived of going to the houses of Allah, these days panela you see crema to narrow, muddy, that is a viola
Thema tenacity that is a value. In other words, you will only realize the value of a blessing once it has been taken away. Now even if you want to go to the masjid, even if you want to go to the masjid, you have the you have the means to go to the masjid. You are deprived from going to the Minister, you have the means you want to go on camera, you can't go on the camera. So hon Allah. We're living in such times media,
brothers and sisters in Islam. So it's important that this this this, you know this temporary, we pray that it's temporary and replay that Allah brings about ease and normalcy as soon as possible. We pray that Allah brings about healing, I mean, we need to value this blessing, you know, now that we're fasting from the massages, we can even go to the houses of Allah subhanho that the most beloved of places and to Allah, the houses of Allah but we have been deprived from going to the massage, we are in a lockdown Subhana Allah in our homes, so we need to we need to yearn for this and intended that when things you know, go back to normalcy, that we develop a better relationship
with the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala right now, we must abide by the laws of our countries if there is a lock down. And if we if we have been asked to distance ourselves socially, if the if we have been asked to self quarantine ourselves and to remain in our homes, then that is what we must do. We must abide by the laws of our countries. But eventually when things become Okay, inshallah we pray for that we pray for normalcy, we must intend to develop and better our relationships with the massage of the velocity with the houses of Allah subhanho wa Taala so in that head if there was I think
sister Vera who responded with the with the right answer, Masha Allah, may Allah bless you, so marketplaces, so the most beloved of places and to Allah subhanho wa Taala are the masajid and the most despised of places the most hated of places and to Allah, other marketplaces. So this hadith regarding the book of management Rahim Allah and this wording is recorded in the book of Imam Muslim Rahim Allah as well.
So my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, the narrations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are many and by the way, for those of you who are on Facebook and Instagram, please do share the stream with others as well so that we can have others benefiting from the sessions and so that we can all share in on the reward. You know, a lot of us we share all kinds of things on social media, you know, means and whatnot, you know, we don't hesitate to share whatever comes our way. When it comes to something like this. Words of our maker words of the prophets of Allah, why didn't you ever send them your way to share you know, the reward? So please do perhaps take the link and maybe if
you have like broadcast lists, share it out with the others and and even on your on your social media pages, please do share it with others so that others can benefit so that others can participate so we can all shine on the reward. inshallah, Donna, if you have to, you know, step out, you can step out and then come back later on and watch the recording once it's uploaded in Montana.
Alright, so the narrations of the Prophet sallallahu, Alayhi, wasallam are many, I mean, now, initially, when we go back in history, initially, the prophets that a lot while he really was 11, did not permit the companions with one light on an image of mine to write down his words, fearing that it would get mixed up with the verses of the Koran with the ayat of the Quran. You see, in the past, during the time of the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam, an ayat would come down the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would read, the ayat would read the iron. And then the Sahaba did one I thought it was mine and the juncture with whoever with the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. Some
of them would commit it to memory, some of them would write it, but in those days, the recording methodologies, the writing methodologies that were in place look crude. Now you didn't you didn't have you know, modern day recording methodologies. today. We have voice recorders. We have audio recorders, video recorders. We have pens and books and digital devices too.
Be able to capture information. But during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they are recording methodologies were crude. So therefore they would write it on pieces of bark, they would write it on leaves, they would write it on skin, whatever that they could get, they would write it and they were very crude compiler patients. So at that time, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not permit the companions to write down and record his words, because at times, though, the prophet Elijah would be reading out in Isaiah and then when the Prophet would go on to explain the idea,
there was this fear that when writing it down, you would have the verses of the Quran, and then the words of the Prophet Elias and I'm written on the same page, and maybe even if not, at that point, later on, a confusion could arise as to whether these are also from the Quran or which is the Quran which are the words of the prophets that Allah while he will add, he will send them So initially, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not permit the companions to write down is a hadith. So basically, the companions would commit to memory, the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And and eventually, even after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, you
would have the companions now, for example, I will worry about rhodiola one, a famous student of the prophets that a long white alias, and then he was always with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam. And he had a number of narrations with him, our mother, Ayesha la de la one, huh, she would have a number of narrations. With her. Even at that, or the last minute, he would have a number of interactions with him. If it was rude or the loved one, he would have a number of interactions with him. So this was the way the hobbies were compiled until we had people legends giants like Imam Al Bihari Rahim Allah and even before Lima Bihari Rahim Allah there were other scholars who went on to
compile, but Allah subhana wa Taala in his infinite wisdom, he brings about this legend, this individual Imam and Bihari because there was no one
in terms of scholarly capacity in comparison menu when you compare the scholars like mama Buhari before him, nor even after him, Allah azza wa jal brought about this individual to protect the words of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, you will study today in sha Allah, certain features from the life of Mr. Buhari and he was no ordinary individuals.
You know, we fade away in comparison and we need to we really need to discuss and study the lives of these legends to draw inspiration to to strive to reach heights like them and emulate the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam they loved that they had for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the respect that they had for the words of the prophets of Allah when he when he was and the importance that they attached to the words of the prophets of Allah it was mind blowing mind blowing.
imaginable quality Rahim Allah My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, he did not include
a single ad. A single headed and you know, I would suggest for some of the students online, if you could perhaps make notes if you could type it out and share it later on. I could even reshare it on on my pages in sha Allah, Allah
for the benefit of others, so if I will go follow him Oh, hold on. He did not include a single Hadith into his compile ation, except that he would purify himself. As per some reports he would take a bath, he would pray two units of prayer. And he would seek goodness from Allah Subhana Medina, before inserting the hobbies into his combination is the heart or seeking goodness or law, if you will, in your knowledge, if it is good for my Deen for my, for my for my author or for all of what I'm doing. If it is good that I should compile this hadith as part of the compiler can then decree it for me so that I may compile it and if you decree otherwise, and if it is in your
knowledge, otherwise, then turn me away from it and turn it away from me. Because you have to understand that after a period of time we started, you know, facing the issue of week narrations
week narrations and fabricated narrations because now you have individuals who started to lie against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during the time of the Sahaba one light Allah Allah much mine we didn't have the problem because we believe in all of us have at the moment that Allah Allah made you money but later on generation after generation now you have individuals who started to understand that anytime an argument crops up the trump card, is to say that you know what, I have a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stating this and everybody would keep quiet. So now you're starting to get individuals fabricating a hadith to fuel and drive their own personal
So then Allah subhanho wa Taala brings about scholars the likes of Imam Al Bukhari rahima hula were very stringent who had strict conditions to be
Do filter and sift through all these ahaadeeth and compile the authentic ones for us in heinola. So remember hardrock mala was very stringent It was very strict with his conditions in regards to accepting a hadith. Now that's a discussion for another day in terms of the science of the compilation of a Heidi. But nonetheless, a moment before Rahim Allah was very careful in terms of accepting a Heidi in terms of compiling them into his compile ation. Now at the tender age of 15, Imam Al Bukhari had memorized 70,000 odd narrations of the prophets of Allah while he was 70,000 odd narrations Allahu Akbar, and later on you will study that throughout his entire life he had studied
under almost 1000 teachers and had
In other words, he had heard narrations from approximately 1000 teachers, and he had gone on to memorize almost 600,000 narrations of the prophets all along while he was in him. But interestingly, when you take the book of Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah, how many narrations do we have? I mean, let me put it out there who knows the answer? How many narrations do we have in the book of Mr. Bahari? What do you think?
How many nations do we have in the book of a man?
You get it right? Especially for you by mentioning your name child.
Who knows how many how many
versions of the book have now what do we say? We said that he
had memorized at this juncture at the age of 15.
And later on, we
met number 1000 600,000 aerations.
Okay, so perhaps if you're not familiar with the answer, I have with rocky rocky mahalo, he tells us that
there are 4000 narrations,
a sham 600,000 narrations not in? Yes, basically 600,000 across his life, but how many narrations do we have in his book in his compile ation? So I'll have I'll have a rocky rahula he says
4000 narration to the Book of Mormon Buhari and we also have something called macabre narrations, the Hadith that occur repeatedly, they are above 3000. So if it is Allah, He says that the number of Heidi's in the book of Imam Al Bukhari 7275, including the a hadith that occur repeatedly, so 7275, a hadith including the ones that occur repeatedly, if you omit the ones that occur repeatedly, you have 4000 narrations in the book of Imam Al Bukhari. Now interestingly, brothers and sisters think about it at the age of 15. He has 70,000 Yes, yes. Mashallah brother sajak, Baraka Luffy como la su 7275? Yes. So.
So interestingly, at the age of 15, he has 70,000 narrations with him and across his life he has 600,000 narrations, but in his book, including the repeater, let's let's say if we go with the the Hadith that have been repeated, including that the total number is 7275. So why didn't he include all of the other narrations? And why is he restricted himself to 7000? a happy medium brothers and sisters? Mmm Bihari himself goes on to answer this question later on, and I'll come to that and we will discuss that. But nonetheless, what you have to understand is his protocol of accepting a hobby if you had a very stringent and very strict protocol, and and this was something that the scholars
of Hadith took very seriously you know, today there are people who question the whole Institute of a Hadith of the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, not knowing and not understanding the academics behind it, they had very, very strict protocols in terms of accepting a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because they were wary and they were careful that they should never ever entertain a fabrication or lie against the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam because the prophets that allamani various films reporter said Monica Allah Mohammed unbelievable what Mercado Wolfie now, the one who lies against me intentionally let him reserve a seat for him in the fire of
jahannam. May Allah save us all? I mean, so therefore, many brothers and sisters understand they were very careful in this regard. They they took their reputations very serious
Now you might be wondering why. Why did they take their reputations? Seriously, they took their reputations seriously now like, for example, remember Buhari, he had a reputation of being truthful, he had a reputation of being very stringent with his hobbies. Nice at any juncture, if he if his reputation were to become compromised, then his entire legacy this entire establishment, his students, this compile ation everything would be at stake, everything would be compromised, his recording of the height of the bumps and it would be compromised because people would be like, Oh, well, you know what, he's a liar. We can't we can't trust him. He lies, he cheats. He does all of
this. So we can't trust him. We can't accept as a Heidi. So they were really very careful with their reputations. They were very careful in terms of their compiled versions of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, especially individuals like Manuel Bihari rahula, as you will see, when we discuss his story. So now, Mr. Bahari, What is his name?
What is the name of the woman behind?
His name was Mohammed. His name was Mohammed.
Again, his name was Mohammed. And as for his full name, he was Mohammed even his Marielle so by the way, he is law club. So you know, amidst the atoms, you have something called the lockup. Some of you might be familiar with it, this concept of lockup, it is in English, if you Google it, it tells you that it is a technology. You can you can check it up on Google, it's not a nickname. It's a sorry lockup is a nickname punia punia is a technical name. So you had nicknames and pick names. So
punia is any name attached to Abu or own the father of so and so or the mother of so and so. And generally speaking, they would name themselves after they're first born. But it didn't always have to be that way. You could suit a cornea upon yourself, even if you didn't have children or even if you weren't married, that was the norm at that time. So the kuliah of Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah was Abu Abdullah, the father of Abdullah Abu Abdullah, his name his full name, Mohammed Abdullah is Marian Eben Ibrahim Ibn Al movie era. Even Elmo era, even better this bar
even better, this bar.
Okay, so those two names make note of them. So his full name was Muhammad. So he was basically Muhammad, the son of his MA in the son of Ibrahim, the son of Elmo here, ah, the son of bear this bear, the son of Belle, this bath. So bear this bear and bear this bear as you can see those two names, tongue twisters, if you will. And also strange names. We're not familiar with these names, because these two individuals were Persians. They were Persians. And as for historians, these two individuals weren't even Muslims. They were Persians, there was Romanians, and then later on down the line, generations down the line they, you know, Mama Bihari himolla. His grandfather went on to
embrace Islam and that his father was a great scholar as well as my age. His name was Mohammed the name of Mohammed. His father's name was his mighty.
So remember Bihari Rahim Allah He was born as the Russians in the books of history after Salatu jamara on Friday, on Friday, in the month of shoval during the year 194 of the hatred of the prophets of Allah Islam so 194 years after the hatred of the prophets, Allah money values in the city of Bukhara, which is in present day, Uzbekistan. Remember Buhari Rahim Allah so you can see he is known as Al Bihari because he comes from behala. So that's almost like a nickname given to him, I'm going to hire him Allah. And then interestingly, you have individuals who become famous by attributing themselves to a particular location but you have Bahar are becoming famous and well
known because of Imam Al Bukhari being attributed to the place of handla. So, before he comes from Al Baqarah, which is in present day was Becca, Stan. So remember before Abraham a whole lot, his father is Marine, he was from the scholars of haidet. His father was a scholar as well. He was a scholar of Hadith, and he was a student of the great Imam Malik urashima, hula.
And he was a very righteous individual, a very
careful individual, a very pious individual.
Scholars narrated the books of history that one individual enters upon the father of Imam Al Bukhari rahula when he was on his deathbed because the father of mama go, Ha, Ha
Allah passes away when mama Buhari Rahim Allah was an infant. So now this scholar enters upon the father of Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah when he was in his on his deathbed and he asks him How do you think you will fare with the almighty with Allah subhanho wa Taala the father of Imam Al Bukhari of him, Allah He responds, will lie.
And this is a reminder for all of us many brothers and sisters in Islam, he says, Well llahi I don't have a single dyrham of haraam wealth with me or even a dyrham in a gray area from my well I don't have a single Dirham that is from haram sources, or even from doubtful sources, ambiguous sources, so my conscience is free and I'm looking forward to meet Allah subhanho data if I'm gonna go follow him Allah was brought up very very carefully by his father. What can you see Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the number of Iran what kind of Whoo hoo masala ha info to gas remember the stories in so to recap,
when Messiah Salam meets Hadith, Elisa, that was Sam
Yes, this is Episode One, but it will not be a daily thing brother must have is going to be a weekly thing in Sharla every Saturday with the help of Allah around this time. Okay, so getting back to the content.
Allah Subhana Allah Allah He mentioned the story of the the encounter between musala Sato Salaam and Hadith and Islamic Islam.
Towards the end of the encounter between the two of these individuals, they go to a village and they look for some food or place to stay. And
the people of the village, they were not hospitable. They tell them to leave very stingy individuals. So as they were leaving, there was this wall that was collapsing, how they allege that was alive, he goes on to, you know, repair the wall,
and then massage that was having questions in that regard. And because of that, it was the parting of ways and when they were parting ways, other goes on to explain why he did what he did. So this incident as to why he repaired the wall. He goes on to explain. He repaired it because he was informed that there was a treasure buried under the wall that belonged to orphans. And if the wall were to collapse, the treasure would be exposed and these greedy Village People would all use up that wealth they would rub their wealth away. So Allah subhanho wa Taala had instructed him to repair the wall to protect the wealth, and the wealth was being protected. What can I boohoo masala
ha because the father was passed away was a righteous individual. So when you want your children media or other media system to be righteous, you need to walk the dog first. You need to set a precedent you need to be a role model. If you have not improved and developed your relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala How can you expect your children to toe the line? How can you expect your children to develop and enhance the relationship with Allah Subhana Allah? How can you expect that Allah protects your children from the traps of the devil? May Allah protect our children? I mean, so therefore it is of utmost importance that we improve our relationship with our maker, and then
the upbringing of our children the Tobia of our children in terms of spiritually rejuvenating our children, we must do it with utmost care. So remember Bukhari Rahim. Allah was looked after in terms of his spirituality by his father and mother very well. And my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, this this is important, this, you know, feeding your children with halal food from halau sources of income, it has a huge impact on the spirituality and and on the nurturing of the child. We have another scholar emammal haramain, a geraniol Rahim Allah. He says that in terms of his child, he was so stringent, so careful in terms of ensuring that his child was only given halau sustenance, that
he wouldn't even allow any other lady other than his wife to breastfeed the child because he wasn't sure as to whether this other lady because it used to be the practice
of the Adams to, you know, give their children to witnesses where you would have witnesses would breastfeed the children. But he was concerned and worried that this lady was going to be a witness might consume something that is haram, and that how our food might make its way into the child's belly. So he was extremely careful. One day, somebody visits his house, and at that time his wife had had had, you know, stepped in the kitchen to do
a child starts to cry and how so this lady was entered. She goes on to breastfeed the time. She goes on to breastfeed the child.
The mother enters and she was disturbed and she went on to say, oh, why did you breastfeed the child? My mind
husband does not allow this and he does not permit this. And later on down the line My dear brothers and sisters in Islam the books of history mentioned that this child went on to develop a stutter.
stutter a stammer. And this share emammal had Amina Giovanni Rahim Allah He goes on to say,
when observing the stutter that this stutter is perhaps because the child may have taken in some doubtful sustenance through the breastfeeding that took place that day. So they were extremely careful in terms of ensuring that only halaal food makes its way into their bodies and their bodies are nurtured through hollow sustenance. But today, you and I, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, we are all guilty of it May Allah help us to, to stick to that which is hard halaal and to to restrict ourselves to that which is Hello. Today, we don't even think twice in terms of the food that comes to us. We just eat whatever it is Hana law, we just eat whatever it is not even thinking
of the repercussions that that food is going to have in our bodies. Today's today we have non Muslims who are concerned in terms of the types of food that they eat, and they are restricting themselves to clean eating, and they're staying away from processed food and things that are harmful to their physical body. So if you have food that is harmful to your physical body, then don't you think that that same food is going to be harmful to spirituality as well. So Han Allah, at times you have you know, when you look at the meat industry today, the way the animals are abused, the way the animals are treated, there's a lot of pain going on. There's a lot of inhumane treatment going on
with these animals. And then we go on to consume the meat of an animal that has been ill treated to think that that it is going to affect us and affect our spirituality. So as believers, we have to be careful in terms of the food that we consume. I know it's difficult in today's context due to the industrialization and commercialization of the products that we consume. But yet, try to be as careful as possible. I'll leave the ball in your court to the best of your capacity in terms of ensuring that you eat halal and Thai Heba po good and wholesome food May Allah subhana wa Taala help us all to do so.
So now the mother of Manuel Buhari, okay Mama, very righteous lady as per the books of history. Now like I mentioned, the father of Mama gohar Latino law passes away when Mama Mama was an infant.
So now the responsibility of bringing up mama Bahama hula was on the shoulders of the mother and the lap of the mother is of utmost importance many brothers and sisters in Islam and or sisters or sisters, you have to understand this this responsibility that has been thrust upon your shoulders by your maker subhanho wa Taala your lack is of utmost importance in terms of nurturing and bringing up legends, the likes of Imam Al Bukhari. You see all these scholars these great scholars of the past you always when you go to the books of history one distinct feature many brothers and sisters in Islam is that you see the mother playing a very important role in terms of the upbringing and the
nurturing of these children.
So due to the right upbringing, the right nurturing you see them becoming legends so respect to all the mothers and you should understand that that you have it within you to
bring about and nurture legends the likes of your mama Bihari mama chef a man
so remember to follow him a whole lot many brothers and sisters understand. He was born blind allow. He was born blind.
And the mother of remember Bahar Rahim Allah used to be in constant Doha, Allah.
Bless my child with eyesight return the eyesight to my child, and she used to make so much of law one night she sees a dream where she is being addressed also and so due to your excessive duar your child has been blessed with eyesight. She wakes up. Lo and behold, a son has regained his eyesight and he's able to see now and he was blessed to the extent with such sharp eyesight My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, that later on in his life, you will see due to poverty.
At a very young age he would study at home and they didn't have oil to burn the lamps or the candles at home. They didn't have money to purchase oil to burn the lamps. He would go out and he would record a heartbeat he would study he is a Heidi to memorize a Hadid studying under the moonlight, the light of the moon. You think that's the
It's easy to do so panela you need very good eyesight to be able to do that.
And on the individual despite being born blind he was blessed with such good eyesight. He was also blessed with a photographique memory mama Bukhari Rahim Allah and there are many, many incidents to illustrate this. For example, we have an operation where at the age of 10, or 11, he participates in the gathering of a great scholar by the name a dusty allama adaxially Rahim Allah.
So long Bihari Rahim Allah is at the tender age of 10 or 11. Now this gathering is a huge gathering, gathering of Heidi's, you know, like the one that we're doing right now. So Pamela talking about the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam but obviously what we are doing is is nothing in comparison to these great scholars, the the services that they that they rendered, nonetheless, it was a big gathering of scholars. So allama Daphne is narrating a Heidi with with the chains of narrator's and he had all of his students with him taking note of these Heidi. So one particular narration I Lama does he he says, Okay, so this hadith was narrated and Sophia from soufiane. From
from Abu Zubaydah from Ibrahim
remember Bukhari, Joakim Allah who is now at the tender age of 10 or 11. He raises his hand and he says Yes, chef.
But Abu Zubaydah did not narrate from Ibrahim
the chef the mommy says, No I was aware did narrate from Ibrahim mama Buhari again I yet understand a young boy at the age of 10 or 11. Think of what our 10 year olds are doing today. Subhan Allah, here he is in a huge gathering of a heartbeat and he's telling this great chef, Allah Duffy, that no Abu Zubaydah did not know that from him for him in a very respectful manner.
So the chef Lin says no, he did as per what I have memorized. He has narrated from Ibrahim and remember Bahar Rahim, Allah says it with all due respect to chef, please go and check your notes. Please go and check the acid. Your original notes in terms of whether Abu Zubaydah narrated from Abraham. The chef gets up from the gathering. He goes into his his his library to his office and he takes his notes. He comes back, he sits in the gathering, he opens his notes. He pulls through the chain of narrators. And then he looks at him and Ohara Himalaya and he says yagura or youngboy What did you just say? So the boy liniment Rahim Allah says Abu Zubaydah did not know that from Ibrahim
because there's a big gap between the two of them. There are many years between the two of them. It's just not possible for Abu Zubaydah to narrate some Ibrahim they were not contemporaries, they didn't live at the same time.
The chef then looks at his notes and then looks at him with Bukhara Himalayan says, You have spoken the truth, what I said earlier was wrong. And as per my notes, Abu Zubaydah did not narrate from Ibrahim Allah. So you see the precision. You see the dip car, the position of his memory at such a young age abominable car rahimullah and from his teachers, many brothers and sisters in Islam we have legends again, he studied under legends. For example, we have this individual Mohammed bin Salaam. I'll be Fundy Rahim, Allah, very famous scholar of the past. And there's an interesting story that is narrated about Mohammed Avila, Sarah alanda de Rahim, Allah that when he was was
studying, one day, he was in a gathering.
And he was
writing he was writing because See, the thing is, unlike today, now, today, you know, with all these devices that we have, for example, even if you were to miss this session, or if you were to tune out a little bit, you can always come back and listen to it. So people have this sense of you know, Oh, you know what, it's okay, you know, I can procrastinate, I don't really have to listen to it right now. I listen to it later on. And then you know, SharePoint comes in and then distracts us, may Allah protect us. But in those times, they didn't have the luxury of doing that. If they were listening to something live, they had to capture whatever they could capture then and there, because
if the scholar were to finish his gathering, then there's no way for them to get that information unless he has another gathering again. So this this this chef is writing from his from your chef is writing fast and furiously, trying to capture as much information as possible from his chef.
When his pin breaks in the gathering, he looks around all his colleagues are writing and he's not able to record he immediately cries out colombina colombina. I will give a dinner for append. I just need a pen. Give me a pen. I'll give you a DNR for it. Now, just to put things in context. The dinar is a lot of money for a pen. I mean, generally speaking, how much would you spend on on a basic pen? In the Sri Lankan context, you could get a pen for maybe 2050 rupees perhaps. Here he is saying, you know what I'll give you like $1,000 $1,000 or 100. You know, actually dinner is an
mosey let's say maybe even if 1000 is an exaggeration, let's say $500 $5 for a pen,
all of his all of his colleagues he started throwing pens at him, he grabs one pen and he goes on to write and then after the after the circle after the session, he pays the money to that individual point being, that this is how much of importance they gave to knowledge, they gave to the words of the prophets of Allah highly variable and they had so much of zeal, so much of enthusiasm in terms of capturing the words of the prophets that allow it where the wisdom so this individual is one of the teachers of the moment Buhari haemangioma. So it is said that the moment because like I said, he has heard from 1000 teachers and he has learned over 600,000 a hagie.
Now initially, Mama Maha Rahim Allah spent his time in alcohol, seeking knowledge from the scholars of alcohol at the age of 16. He along with his brother and his widowed mother, because his father had passed away, they perform hajj, Hajj to the house of Allah subhanho that Allah is the basis on which opportunities to perform hajj and in May Allah bring about he is now loving about normalcy, male leveling about relief, may Allah bring about healing please say I mean in the midst of learning the words of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we make this to hire Allah bring about peace, loving about ease, bring about relief and bring about normalcy. Allah protect us from all these unknown
sicknesses protect us and protect our loved ones. I mean, I mean, so remember Bukhari Rahim Allah with his brother and his mother they they make Hutch to Makkah
now, after performing hajj, his mother and his brother returned back to
baja Emmanuel Bukhari Rahim Allah He remains in Makkah in Hijaz for four years, where he travels from Mecca to Medina seeking as much knowledge as as possible. And in total, he was away for 16 years you know, seeking knowledge teaching and you know, it was during this period at the moment before Rahim Allah gained a lot of popularity, a lot of fame. people all around knew about the precision of Mr. Bihari and the works of Imam Al Bukhari or I'ma holla.
So during these four years in hijas, they are looking at a youngster at the age of 16. So what his mother would do is that whenever she would get some money, when someone was waiting on Russia would send that money to the lands of McCann, Medina, and that money would eventually reach him on my behalf. Abraham had a little bit of money that he could keep for himself and his expenses while seeking knowledge. But most of the time he was in a lot of difficulty during one particular period of time and this has mentioned in the books that history the money that was supposed to come to mama Bukhara Rahim, Allah does not come on time. So he's left with no money, no food, so much of hunger,
that he ends up eating dry leaves to sustain himself dry leaves alone, dry leaves, he will just dip into some water can eat.
Now, one day, the students his his colleagues, notice that he is missing from the classes for some time for a few days. So they all start to worry about Mr. Bahari and think that perhaps he is Ill let us go and visit him they go and visit him and Bukhari Rahim Allah is living in a small quarters.
When they go and knock the door, Maha Rahim Allah He responds from inside the room. Yes. Who is it? So then the colleagues say, We are your colleagues and they've come to check on you. Why have you been you know, missing from the classes? Why don't you come join us? Are you okay? What's wrong? You don't have to follow him over. He says, well, it's just that I can't come to classes. So they want to kind of badger him from outside the door and say we want to know what's wrong. Why How can we help you? Please open the door let us talk to you the amount Bahama says but I can't open the door. Then they say why can't you open the door open the door so we can come in and talk to you then then
we can see things the moment before rahimullah it was an individual who would not ask help from anybody except from Allah subhana wa then he wouldn't go around asking people so when they kept badgering him, mmm ohare Rahim Allah then says I can't open the door because I don't have clothes. I don't have clothes. The clothes that I had with me I have sold it to buy food to sustain myself to sustain myself so I don't have clothes. That's why I can't open the door and that's why I didn't come for classes as well. Subhan Allah His colleagues immediately went back they did they raised some them some money, and they bought him some food and some clothes and remember Buhari Rahim Allah
was able to start coming back to classes. You see these legends by the brothers and sisters in Islam, they went through a lot of hardship. And that's how they reached these great heights. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us and take us from strength, I mean,
so going on now.
Later on in his life, there's this story that I would like to mention as well before I conclude
I told you at the beginning that the scholars of Hadith they they took their reputations very seriously very seriously because they knew that if their reputations were to be compromised, it would compromise all of the hard work that they put into compiling the Hadith, the pristine Heidi to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so now imaginable Claudia now after he, you know had finished with the initial stage of seeking knowledge and you know, now he's traveling teaching people.
One day he undertakes a CJ, and at this juncture, he has now with him 1000 dinars, Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah takes individuals from one situation to another, whilst he was seeking knowledge, he didn't even have food money to buy food for himself. But now at this juncture, he has a town whose and Dina has with him 1000 gold coins, by the way, you need to you need to, just to put things into perspective, that's a lot of money, a lot of money, a pouch of 1000 gold coins. And by the way, he's not you know, taking these gold coins and trying to go on a holiday by himself. He was basically traveling from one point to the other. And he had he was taking this money with him, he was he was
moving the money with him to spend it on the printing
of hydrogen DPI, to hear to pay a lot of people in terms of printing, he wanted to help his students out. There were many projects that he was involved in, involved in Mo, Mo law. So this money was going to be utilized for that was his money, but he was a very charitable individual. So he was going to utilize this money, he had certain initiatives in mind. And he was traveling from one point to or to another here, and here he had undertaken a C journey. So on this C journey, he's in the boat now, it wasn't a big cruise or whatever it is, it was a ship. But it was a small one. There was this individual who starts to become very friendly with the mama mama with ulterior motives. And
this individual he gets very close to mama Buhari, he warms up the family Ramallah talks to him, okay, where are you going? What are you doing all that? And now whilst undertaking the journey, one will believe it because you understand in those days, you know, a lot of robbery a lot of theft that will take place, so he had you know, kept the money in a safe place with his possessions.
Now, this man was a cunning and sly man, he gets close to him, I'm gonna call her rahula. And somehow, what does he do? He fishes for information and he finds out about 1000 gold coins that are at the moment.
And now this man
he starts to hatch a plan and evil and sinister plan. So now once he had established at the moment Buhari has 1000 gold coins with him here and also, you know, maybe caught a glimpse of the sack of gold coins and whatnot. Midnight fell and everybody was fast asleep, he suddenly wakes up in the middle of the night and starts to shop. Oh, I've been robbed. I've been robbed and he's asked to create a huge ruckus on the ship. Everybody wakes up because at the end of the day, it's a small ship and you know, it's this people around the world wake up what's what's what's going on? What's wrong? No, I've been robbed. I've been robbed as what have you been robbed of what what's missing?
What's missing? They ask him He says, Well, I i've been robbed. A very valuable possession. I had 1000 gold coins with me on
1000 gold coins with me and have been dropped. And then he goes on to say the 1000 gold coins were in a sack like this. The color of the sack was this. It was tied with with a string, the color he goes on to describe the sack in precise detail.
Remember, Bihari Rahim, Allah was observing all of this carefully.
And then this man who shouts saying, I want you all to check the ship, because there is no way in the middle of the ocean. Where can the robber go? If you investigate and check the ship, you will find my bag and I want you to return to me
thinks to himself,
he has two options. One, because he's now strategically thinking very quickly,
if he were to keep the bag with him, and when they start investigating if the bag is found with him, he is going to be deemed as a robber. And that's going to be a blemish on his record. That's going to impact his reputation, and he's going to be known as a thief.
Option number two, that he calls the man
and gives him the money quietly.
his money 1000 points.
Remember, follow him on that thinks to himself.
This thief is evil and slimy. Why should I give my money?
Quickly takes the sack of gold coins and what do you think he did?
He threw it into the ocean Allahu Akbar. He threw it into the ocean. A second
1000 gold coins
now the SEC is busy in the middle of the ocean down at the bottom of the ocean, you know, so they're checking the shape and they go around investigating and they find no no sack of gold. Why is that everybody gets together and schools this man and they all go back to sleep now.
Now what happens?
The man looks at him
and he comes to him now. Not a whole lot is annoyed is agitated. He looks at his manager. I don't want to have anything to do with you. This man says you know what? Okay, fine, but I just want to know what happened to your gold coins. He asks him on
my library cool. He looks at the man and he says
I throw it off the ship.
man couldn't believe his ears. He says you to a sec. of 1000 gold coins off the ship your money. Can't believe it. Mama Buhari
bought him a whole lot and goes on to explain. Yeah, john Hill. He says yeah, jail, or ignorant one. Do you think
I have devoted my entire life I've sacrificed my entire life to the study and the compile ation of the words of our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And I am known in the Islamic world for my precision in regards to the words of the prophets, Elijah, that I am a compiler of the words of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Do you want me to compromise that profession? That reputation? That office that I hold for Amir 1000 dinars? No,
no, I will never do that. So this My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, is the importance that they gave to the office that they held to the words of the Prophet salallahu alaihe. But Allah He said,
