Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
wa Salatu was Salam ala
ala alihi wa sahbihi adjumani
call out to Allah who could Anil Hakeem? Yeah, in the Lucha Malaika who you Sal Luna Allah Nabhi Yeah. Are you a Latina?
He was 70 mutaz Lima and La masala robotic Allah Muhammad Ali Mohammed Casa La la la la Rahim Allah Allah early Ibrahima innaka Hamid Majeed
because the first part is really recapping so I thought we'll just do 10 minutes in advance Not till tend to.
We begin always praising our loss and in peace and praise on his final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the last one Allah says in the Quran
surely Allah and His angels send Salah prayer you saloon Allah be on the Prophet yeah you know are you who believe salute Ali he sent us and Salah prayers on him was settling with us Lima and peace on him acceptable peace that which is acceptable.
In fact, this is a point that the recap. In the last session, the first session, we covered more his history and the difference between Syrah and Hadith and Sunnah for those who attended definitions and the beginnings of cedar writings, etc. Who were the experts in this field and how it came to us in the end, that is recorded and available for those who missed it, and shall be made available in the future. Last time we focus especially on why should we study the sealer and we look specifically at
the fidella virtues of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about loving Allah loving his messenger being part of Eman not just believing in Him, for those of you who attended last time. And beyond that, we went into great detail without of course but as a recap from the last couple of points, that we mentioned that
love of the messenger on love or love of Allah His Messenger actually means it
was why the Quran Allah swatara mentions call in contempt to hipbone Allah for Debbie oni say, if you really truly love Allah factor B only then follow me it tibba of a sola Salas alum, but Toby only with como la jolla, philippou back home, that Allah will forgive you, then Allah We love you and forgive your sins.
Allah We love you and forgive your sins.
And these things we mentioned last time,
and also the fact that this is the bar. It means emulating Rasulullah Salallahu Salam emulating following the example and we mentioned Of course last time as well, that Allah swatter made him the greatest and the best of characters were in Naka, Allah Allah who looking out for him, surely we have created you and made you the greatest of characters greatest character, the pseudo hustler, some of the greatest character ever walked the earth. And, of course, lapada, Candela, confusa Sula, he was suasana. That at bat for that reason, because part of Eman and the Shahada was going to be loving a lot His Messenger and that love was going to mean, as we mentioned last time, that love for
them more than anything else, including ourselves, and it was going to mean follow and emulating Rasulullah saw some hence he was sent lapada Ghana leconfield Rasulullah Hasina Indeed, we have made for you, in the Messenger of Allah the best example, the most beautiful example to follow. The man can get into lava Yeoman alpha log of zero. So this
emulation, as I mentioned last time, is a human instinct Actually, I mentioned last time the last one that created us, actually as human beings to really be imitated we're influenced by one another because we're very social beings. So society in
People that are around us, we influence one another.
And those we take as our role models and those we take as our examples to emulate. And if we don't, it's not that we're not influence we get influenced by others. So the person, therefore, who was given the utmost love, why, because he was supposed to be par excellence, the most important person for us to emulate in emulating, as I said, is instinct in human beings, and especially saw in young children, they're the ones more than anything else, who are absorbing all that is around them.
And in that regard, of course, as I said last time, as well, that the advertising industry spends millions and billions based on that very idea. So they have some star star in inverted commas, whether it's some sort of sports person or an actor or actress or a singer to come and advertise something just for a few seconds or a moment, paying millions because they know very well it brings back, the money come, the kudos comes back to them in benefit because people are influenced by what they see from these people, they uphold the stars. In reality, our star, our stars are supposed to be pious and good people and the helm of all them, who they're following more than anything, anyone
is Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam therefore mahabad love for him, Salah Islam was supposed to be paramount. And in that.
And if we put Rasulullah saw some aside, then in the end, our selves and our younger generation and others, they taking others as their style, especially if we are not aware of his life and his example, which goes back to why we were discussing this as to why we need to study the life of Rasulullah saw some of these life story. Because if you're going to take him as an example, that we need to know something about him, how can we go around claiming that were Muslims when we know nothing about him? So emulation? And in reality, in this regard, let me just clarify that emulating and copying as it were, if you want to make into very simple terms, is simplistic. We have two kind,
one islamically. One that which is harmless, that which has to do with customs and traditions, as long as they're not against Islam, the way we dress, for example, the fact that we are very many of us Brown, but we're very British, or English and the language that we speak and our mannerisms and our interactions, so much. So as I mentioned last time that we go abroad, even to the countries where our parents came from
our grandparents, even if they go abroad, the people in those countries can tell that this person has come from abroad.
And that's not because of we behaving like the co founder. It's not because we're boozing or dancing or eating pork and they think, Oh, yeah, this person from Britain? No, no, no, you can tell from the other things which are absolutely fine. Because in the end, those things are all part and parcel of, but it's still copying human behavior that influences one another, but there's other aspects of it. And therefore we don't take lock, stock and barrel, everything from the culture and society we live in. And that's the most important aspect, which the civil law system came with. Those are values, values and beliefs and values belief first, on which is then based values, which make the real
character of human beings, not superficial things of just appearance and language. Yeah.
But deeper than that, linked with belief, values of justice, truthfulness, kindness, consideration and mercy. These values that come with the deen with belief, are the most important values in this world and for the hereafter for us because that's what we're going to be judged on. And that's what Rasulullah saw some really came with, it didn't really come to make us into Arabs. It's a very important point to understand. He became among the Arabs and other ambia, Rousseau became, as we know, the Quran says Allah sent prophets and messengers to all nations, they all didn't come speaking Arabic and dressed as Arabs, they came to that people in their own language and in their
own customs and dress. So he was the messenger of the Prophet was one of them. So the prophets of Islam wasn't sent to make us look like Arabs.
He was going to come like that because he was amongst the Arabs, as the as the message where it started with him salasar but his message was about those values that I've been talking about, about believing Allah, not associating with partners, William built on that with the values of truth, justice, honesty, knowing that one day we are
To stand before Allah to answer for how we behave
so this is all linked with emulating and following the example of a syllabus or some It is these keys qualities which really make a human being which really make a mock Minh.
Yeah, this is really the fundamental purpose of asuma sar coming as we'll stop for Don, as he said in the memo is to Lee Otama makari mala flock Oh, Leo Tama solid o'clock. Surely I have only been sent to perfect or make good the best character morals and conduct. That's what I've been sent for. And that's the meaning of meaning of this. A call gallia That was tough for him and stop for the subtle marketing. I will continue with
this will Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah
carrying on just
one more point, as a reminder from last time, for those of you who missed it, before I move on to continuing with the topic, and that is
you noticed I mentioned
at the beginning of the session just before
the ayah from the Quran, Allah swans are saying in the Lucha Malaika who you saloon Allah Nabhi
solely alone, His angels do Salah on the prophet and I mentioned last time as well but for clarification those who weren't there, Salah How does Allah and His Messenger do Salah on the messenger it's the same meaning of Salah, original meaning of slough cosas de la, but this Salah from Allah Of course Allah doesn't pray like we pray on the messenger on the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and the Salah of the melodica is not the same as the Salah of Allah when our dialogue as allies one so Salah of the mela he called the angels here is the law is the app for the Messenger of Allah that they make to Allah. But the meaning for Salah from Allah is Allah blessing on the
so the same word is used but it has different meanings. So Allah has Salah on the Prophet is his blessings on him and the Malaika the angels Salah on the Prophet is asking making the offer his forgiveness and for mercy from Allah for him. And then yeah Illa Xena and Anu oh you who believe salute Allah He you do Salah on him What's our Salah make into offering Allahumma salli ala Muhammad yes what we say
and we're suddenly with a streamer and send Salaam and peace on him acceptable pieces so this Salah, notice here is an order from Allah, this is amor you all are therefore say that command was a commandment for you to do Salah. Why do I mention this again because people often don't realize this because this is linked with the station before Allah Rasool Allah Allah Thunder final messenger that Allah made it an obligation for us to do Salah on the Messenger of Allah the final messenger
and made it a source of agile and reward for us.
Just doing Salah
it's not as an obligation to do that. So much so it is part of our actual Salah isn't it after after here in the final Raka of all Salah. We say yeah, de la ebrahimian they call it Allahumma salli ala Muhammad and Aloma. This is part of Allah made it part part of our Salah shafia for example, say this is rochen of Salah it is wajib it is not accepted without Salah majority of Allah ma the Hanafi amalickiah and Hannah Bella say it is it is
manduca it is highly recommended and if you miss it then you have to do similar to some so not same level of selfie and the very last part
and beyond that so much so as I mentioned last time that the prophet SAW slim said in the famous studies of the of the three amines when he's climbing the member and librium coming and it's related a lot to her grief in a similar way rahima
Rajan look if tau in the whole while I'm usili Allah, Allah, Allah Allah Swami said that may his nose be rubbed in the dirt where he means also in is an expression what it means may that person be humiliated actually
humiliated another version of the Hadith, which is in a hawk and this one's in tirmidhi. It mentions may that person be in Hellfire? That's why
your name is mentioned to that person and they don't say sallallahu alayhi wasallam
will be humiliated say amin, and the prophet SAW Islam and he took he said,
and that's the Hadeeth as it goes on rahima and rajul
the Allahu Rama de la Ramadan
the Hala Ramadan one Salah Fallon yo ferula
that Ramadan comes and goes slicks by and he doesn't get forgiveness out of it. That person must be humiliated because it's so easy to get forgiveness in other words from Ramadan, or akima and fragile at the rocker
in the who Allah wa who will cover
falen Yoda hola hola Chanda, May that person be humiliated. This rajul here, by the way, doesn't mean a man.
And therefore the women are exempt from all these three things. Rangel here represents a person even though the word Roger is used, means man or woman, that their parents another version of these mentions. They made a person be humiliated or police in the fire one or both parents they
have them in old age and they do not end up in paradise through them. That must be such a humiliated person.
This edition itself is so powerful and so much to say about it but we haven't got time for that. But here it mentions Salah on Nabhi fellow solemn and wretched person who doesn't really I missed the last time Allah ma said that at least in a sitting if you hear the name of Rasulullah saw Salamis is being mentioned that Lisa wants at least has the obligatory actually obligatory for not doing it. See the consequence of the study and seeing it more often more reward of course, and especial times when it's linked, saying Salah on the sola saw solemn, indicating again he's stationed before Allah subhanho wa Taala before our Creator and how it will help us on Yom Okayama especial times we
mentioned Salah already, of course is your Majumdar and we before we come to your mojo man we just heard the more as in
Is this the poem is Hassan said is a Samaritan Alma Xin
is assymetrical Morales lane for Cole for kulu. Miss lahmacun if you hear the word then during the exam then say as the morphing says as we repeat some man some after he said
Kuma solu Alia and the prophesied slum said Fatima humann Salah la sala and sal Allahu Allah Yosh La
Jolla the mentioned last time that after the most in finishes, then send Salah on me This is before we do that to Allah Mara baja de de la wa salatu wa ala and because there's no Salah in that door, so we supposed to actually say Allahumma salli ala Mohammed which covers this honey fear and then say Allah subhanho
wa salatu wa
because the bob is awesome saying the one who sends sends prayer on me, Allah will send 10 prayers on them. Allah sent templates you look at the reward linked with it.
Some Allahu alaihe meaning of you and me.
It's amazing. It's so amazing. sallallahu alayhi ashlan and Yama, Yama is a special time at the prophesized. flamstead
mean after Yom Yom Yom Yom ojama fie aplicado mfine COVID Wi Fi hint, naphtha, Wi Fi his Sapa normal Juma is the best days for you from the most virtuous days in nh Adam was created in it. He found his death on on the day of Friday, on the day of Friday will be the blowing of the trumpet. The final trumpet on the day of Friday will be the collapse. Everybody will when everybody will perish it will be on normal drama. And then the problem starts Lim said he said for exaro la mina sala
de la yumminess la aina salata comb ma Olga talaia apologia sola kafer torrado Salatu una vaca
said, do lots of Salah on me on Yama Yama because your Salah is presented to me.
This is for all a man all times to come. That's why Sahaba jasola how's our Salah going to be presented to you when you're rotten and you become dust in the grave or the pocket or into a color so leisel ally slim in the Lucha xojo harmala Allah and tacu saddle ambia because Allah has said has made haram for the earth to eat the bodies. Yeah of the envy of the prophets that they don't rock. It is from
Allah subhanho wa Taala it is decided so your Salah, our Salah, presented to the sola sola, sola.
So all this Salah in it is reward and Azure. And remember
and I'll stop with this part of it because last time I mentioned this very important Hadith about his station on Yom Okayama. It's all linked with that
because of what his position is, as the prophesize for them said Allah Mohammed when I was under the hardship, your shadow National Academy, I am Mohammed and I am Achmad and I am harsh in the godhra all human beings will be gathered at my feet on the Day of Judgment sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
today the rest of the time and I don't want to go
in the next 40 minutes or so inshallah must stop them to give you some 10 minutes or so to ask questions. And Charla,
I want to mention,
before we go into the birth of Rasulullah Salah, so let me In fact, before we even go to the background in Arabia, about the state of the world,
around that time around the sixth century,
sixth century AD, what the situation will as historians write, probably the best book to read that in which references lots of other books is by saying, Apple has a network,
which A Short History,
a shortest history of Islam, I think it's called.
And he references various scholars, Western scholars included and Muslim scholars, including tabari rota De Fuca be the great history, as I mentioned to you before, the famous amount of Tafseer of debris,
but also referencing books like
short history of the world by HG Wells, and others like
William mewar, and lamotta, and other writers as well. So if we look at that time period, we'll see the historians themselves including HG Wells describe it as the most dark and miserable time of humanity and of human value. Yeah, and of human dignity and quality.
As far as Around this time,
as far as religion is concerned, as far as empires are concerned, you have the Roman Empire, the remains of the Roman Empire, because the Western Roman Empire has already been conquered, in the in the fifth century, by barians. barbarians, yeah, destroyed and took over Rome, the West, Western Roman Empire as it was then divided. In fact, the Emperor Constantine brought it together in the fourth century, around 325. And he became the emperor of both sides, he established his rulership, actually, in Constantinople, which is now assembled. That was the Eastern Roman Empire,
named after him Constantinople, the city of Constantine, who's also the first one to make Christianity, the state religion. Before that it was paganism, paganism, the Roman gods, etc, etc, etc, they were worshipping. So the Roman Empire, even the Eastern Roman Empire, which was still there, in the sixth century,
and similar to his Western counterpart, which had fizzled away and been taken over by barbarians, and people of ignorance, as we'll come to Western Europe and mentioned in a moment, but even if we look at the Eastern Roman Empire, its religion was Christianity. But Christianity had less influence on the culture and values and even worship of the Romans and those who are under their subjugation. Then idolatry had on Christianity. That's how Christian scholars right Christian
It became more affected by the by them, then it affected them. Christianity was certainly not the teachings in that century of what the what Libyan resole, Jesus alayhis salaam broke,
but entered into it the idea of Trinity, which was established actually, by the church fathers in the same in the fourth century, around the time of Constantine, the idea of Trinity became finally confirmed in agreement. So all of us who had the idea in Christianity, of unity of unity of God, their ideas were rejected and Trinity was established as the dogma for Christianity. So, like even that was around 300 years after the coming up.
Of course, Jesus, as we know, broke didn't bring Christianity.
Even if you read the Gospels To this day, you have no evidence at all. That's not me saying this is Christian scholarship again, there is nothing in there that he came with a new new religion called Christianity. He came to reform the Bani Israel, the children of Israel who called themselves the Jews. Yeah. And even the Gospels. Yeah, this they say, Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.
Jesus of Nazareth, natural King of the Jews, he came to reform them, he prayed in a synagogue, he, he did create a new church, the whole idea of church and Trinity and the cross and the original sin is all Paul's ideas. Paul, not a disciple of Jesus, but somebody who arrived later on. I don't want to go too much into that just as a but the point is that that Christianity, even introduced by Paul was heavily affected by Roman influence.
And Trinity Trinity, and, and therefore it became about building even statues of saints and people started worshipping saints aside from worshipping Jesus and mother of Jesus and God.
So I go worship came through the saints, actually. But what Christianity had was through, really, through monks and ascetics, people who left the world had nothing to do with the world. They were the ones who were but Rome itself. The Roman Empire itself was
full of usurping the rights majority of people were those who were slaves,
filling the pockets and the policies of the rich, the Emperor's and their families.
The employees and their families, the rest, you were either Roman or slave, the majority were slave. women had no value.
No value like chattel. the only woman who had some value was the aristocracy, again, any aristocracy. It was like the western counterpart of the Roman Empire. It was a filter as far as etiquette and morals were concerned, all kinds of things was going on, of immorality. And it's well written about, even if we see history, as corrupted, and who's writing the history. Remember, I talked about Sierra then we wonder, where do we get our history from here? So, in the details of it, we get an overall picture that it was like that the details are lonely, knows exactly what Claudius did, and what Caligula did, and books are written about it, but how authentic it is, we have no
idea. We have no idea really, nevertheless, an overview of that picture, and many have written
historians about the corrupt and, and miserable situation of the Eastern Roman Empire.
Miserable said that the where you had blood spores in the Western Roman Empire, you had the similar in the Hippodrome, the remains, which is still in Istanbul in Turkey, which was in Constantinople, where they used to have chariot arrest in other blood sports. And they had, which I mentioned it because, you know, it's so much linked with today's world.
History repeats itself, you know, they say, Hippodrome, which used to hold, they say between 800 to 100,000 supporters to come in what and they had the green team and the blue, the red team or the blue team, I forgot now green or blue. There were the two men and they even had civil war between the supporters of the two teams killing each other over it.
obsessed with this kind of sovereignty and sport, support a sport which obviously the ruling class is wanting to keep the masses occupied with, you know, pastimes of sport, as we have today.
Keep the masses occupy religion. Religion in a real sense today and they say it in many adverse is sport isn't it? It's for football,
or other sport. And similarly it was used in those days as well to keep people busy with Donnie Antonia. So this was the state of the Roman Empire, Christianity was the nominal.
Normally it was a religion. So you had the ascetics who took it to being monks, etc. But the vast majority, it was just lip service to the reality of religion, nationality, religion was actually missing.
And you look, Judaism itself was in pockets again, because the as the Jewish writers scholars write themselves, the Jews were a very racist,
a racist lot of people because Jewish Judaism was just through the the bloodlines. And they very much were not a missionary religion, they had also been corrupted with the same thing that being corrupted when when he Salah Islam came to reform them reject rejected him. So they stayed in the same ritualistic and corrupted traditions, away from the Torah, but in the writings in Talmud and other books of the the Jewish rabbis who decided to write and infer from that very ritualistic and missing the spirit, which what is Allah Islam try to come to,
as far as
on the other side, when we look at the Empires, the two main empires we had the Persian Empire on the other side of the in between was Arabia.
Yeah, so the Eastern Roman Empire going as far as covering Greece and, and Turkey, of course, and then Sham, Syria, Palestine, all this area is Eastern Roman Empire, even when Rasulullah saw some arrives. That's the the big power. On the other side, we have the Persian power Empire.
And the Persian Empire, in contrast, is also similarly, that corrupt kind of Empire, where the the kiss law or the cost Ross, there King has made himself into a God
into God, that people had to worship Him as they worship the fire. Zoroastrianism Yeah, there was the idea of worship of the of Earth and water and wind, but the main thing that worship was fire, the fire, which must always be lit, and the priests who control the idea who were in cahoots with the with the, with the kisser, and slaving the rest of humanity, the kiss rice mentioned used to have 1000s of
not just servers, but 1000s. Looking after the animals 1000s doing the cooking for them as they travel from this place to that place, in the 1000s enslaved people, and how they enslave even people in the military, they used human beings like fodder
just to fight and get killed on their behalf. So they're paganism was the worship of fire,
human value. Again, it was enslaving people to fill the bellies in the pockets of the few elite who were rich, and the priestly class were in cahoots with them.
Women, again, human beings majority had no value, women definitely had no value, again in the Persian Empire. And it was rich, of course, because the objective was to amass riches at the expense of people as the Romans were taxing people and slaves on the other side, these were taxing them similarly on the underside.
So is that one was a reflection of the other.
So the sad thing is the Roman Empire supposed to have religion, Christianity and one of these, but you don't really find much difference in the in the result of our human beings were being treated. So in this in this dark times,
you had a third Empire, which was the Indian Empire. And what situation was in the Indian Empire was bismil as well. The Indian or Hindu Indian Empire was
under the, the the clutches of, again the priestly class, actually, it was a priestly class.
Who wrote the religious book for them?
It was a priestly class. The priestly class interesting if you look at migrations came from the Aryan Aryan race, which are the the northern race of fair skinned. And you also see why India to this day has a problem with dark skinned people to the accent extent, you all know, or you should know, bleaching, bleaching is such a common fashion then a part of makeup is to bleach your face. Is it not? You know about that? Maybe the sisters know more than the brothers.
Not just actresses doing it. It is rampant. Yeah, to look fairer. Because black is linked with the law class untouchables who said that the Aryan race, people who came to rule they're there with a priestly class and they were fed, they want you to rule so they wrote their or their religious manuscripts and books and say, This is how it is brown, or Brahma is the God the Creator, from his hand came us. We are the priests are the ones who are writing the Scripture.
So you can see why the bias comes in from his head. He created us. Yeah, so we write the Scripture and we read it and we interpret it for you the message from his shoulders and upper part come.
So from the head was the Brahmins, the Brahmins, the priestly class.
So they were the ones who were abusing and usurping the rights, and to the extent that their own Hindu rights is right, that the the places of worship of idolatry was about really abusing, abusing women and girls, that's what the priests were involved in.
That's what they were involved in.
And idolatry. Of course, when I come to the rest of it, of course, they had not 360 idols right around the Kaaba, they had 300 million adults.
Because of this, I pantheistic idea of God is in everything anyway. So the priestly class from the head, the Brahmins, then came the
arteries, cash arteries, from the shoulders, upper body of God, Brahma,
they were who were there, they were the the ruling class and, and the soldiers, the military. Yeah, again, under the priestly class, but, but they were not working that day, the ruling class,
the ruling the aristocrats, and the warriors. They're in kashia Toria.
So they they are in cahoots with the head, right.
Said from the middle part, and the upper legs come the business people and the the workers part of the machinery, yeah, they're in the middle. But the majority came from the feet.
The third was the waist, the very side, they call them.
And the last the majority were the shudras, the column The Untouchables, which were the majority majority, untouchable, they could not come near the Brahm a Brahmin at all, if they sat near a Brahmin, they were, it was haram for them to read the Scripture.
Their life, according to the Brahmins, and the scripture was the same as the life of a cat or a dog.
So if a Brahmin or other classes killed from the from the shudra their punishment will be like that of them killing a cat or a dog.
That this is what India was steeped in,
steeped in this caste system.
Yeah, a filthy castle. And its remnants of that caste system still exists today. Sadly, sadly, we have the remnants of it in the Muslims to do today. Do we know?
Do we know we still do, we still do. And it's origin is there, hatred in Islam, this kind of thing. So this was just an overall sort of picture as far as India was concerned.
India, of course, despite this is its moral makeup, and its religious makeup, idolatry and Buddhism, which was there as well. Whatever Buddha thought has suddenly been lost whether we were not clear about who Buddha was some some Muslims said Buddha was a messenger who came who sent from the from Allah
We don't know that we shouldn't say things like that we have no evidence for it at all. We believe that all this was sent messengers, like they say about Alexander the Great or that was good name. Do you know that
he took just take wild guesses and put blueconic Luca name on somebody from history say that was, you know, say possibility don't just come to conclusions, just wild, you know, conclusions as we may, as we make wild conclusions nowadays, even Oh, he he's become Muslim.
We make those kind of conclusions often don't we some sort of status, oh, you become Muslim. And then you go in and certainly find out it never became anything
just to score some points. So, here,
the Buddhism was very similar to when Hinduism as it as it is today, steeped in idolatry, steeped in idolatry.
Again, the value of a woman, if that's the caste system, you can imagine what the value of women is. Even in the aristocracy. Yeah, it was not everywhere, but it was well established in practice, when the husband dies, that the woman is to be burned at the same time after him, he has no value after the husband's gone.
And I Muslims stopped the burning, but they took the idea of enslaving the woman, as a wife, and how often I've heard it in Asian household that the woman woman is like a pair of slippers or shoes.
You change them and take them and throw them away as you wish. This is very much very common. I've heard in so many Asian household, this statement from the men.
And it came from this Hindu Hindu idea.
The sad thing is that the Muslims did not finish this practice completely. Instead, it required the British to come over and actually outlawed this practice.
at the same time, if we now come further west and come to Western Europe,
yeah, this they call HG Wells, right? In his book, you'll see what he's saying. He makes an analysis. And he writes about Europe, Western Europe, this is the dark ages of Western Europe, was in Western Europe, Western Europe, this is the remnants after the Roman Empire has collapsed and they've left. And what happens barbarians have taken over barbarians, means they're not educated and literate kind of people. Yeah, there's no learning going on no teaching going on. Like when the Mongols came to the Islamic empire, what did they bring with them that in bring literacy, literature and learning as civilization destroyed literature and learning and burned down places of learning
and throws back decades, did they not? That's what's happening in Western Europe, around the time of the advent of Rasulullah saw Islam in the dark ages.
barbarians chucked out the Roman Romans from Rome, they took over in Europe. Yeah, tribes are fighting each the feudal lords because there's anarchy. Now what happens a rich
a rich person, I suppose similar happened in Pakistan in India as well. They took over their area or a village or a little town. The children is here you had the feudal system, some Lord who owns the land, lacking the poor, who will serve the the small state, the farmers and the peasants and the rich is all good. And he looks after them and provides them some shelter and some food.
But this Britain and Germany there's invasions going on from Anglo Anglo and Anglo Saxons and francs as far as going to France and German race especially. Yeah.
But as far as Christianity is already there, Christianity arrived. Yeah. But it's remnants are is it's the people who are at the helm of the religion side of things or controlling the people are against learning and science and development. And you contrast that with when Muslims took science and how they developed it. Here you find and that's why the West reacted against religion, because they didn't want to delve into any learning and science, but into dogma and in their superstitions, they want to control people.
Which is what was going on here. So that's why God
ages because there's no learning, there's no development of society and civilization going on. And as he welds, he says that all that we had, from knowledge from the Greeks, of their learning and civilization had been passed to some extent by the Romans to Western Europe. But as the Romans left,
Europe was in great danger, in fact, had lost his connection with the literal at the lecture and the learning passed in these dark ages. So who revived it? That's what he's saying. He said, was it? In other words, he's implying that was it not for Islam, nobody expected anything to come from Arabia.
You had the two nations, the the Persian Empire, and the Roman Eastern Roman Empire headlocks, destroying one after each other. There's no learning as such an your Western European Dark Ages.
So really had it not been for that he well says the Mongols would have come.
Yeah. And they would have, they would have been no link with enlightenment learning from the past, because it was actually is implied to the Muslims revived that learning and brought it back once again, to you to Western Europe, which is well established back.
So as far as an overview of the situation is concerned in the world, and I'm not going to go into Arabia today because Arabia will open its own interesting scenario and situation.
But that's an overview of what the world situation was around
the fifth sixth century, and six sense of being relevant when the time of Rasulullah saw some his birth is
it's important to realize that because
only one of statements have been caught up only in learning about ignorance Do you realize about enlightenment, when you contrast? Yeah, this is one of the ways of learning to contrast is to realize the value then of the coming of the Messenger of Allah. And what situation the world is gives you gives you a better idea of the light that he brought
Salalah while he was in this darkness, and we mentioned the world, because as we know, this time, he's not being sent to the Roman Empire, or the Persian Empire, or Western Europe or to Arabia, he's been sent to the world. That's when I was forgotten. He said, something like that. All the other prophets and messengers were sent to their people. Yeah, and I have been sent to the whole of the world, to the s word, and the afnor.
To the black. othmer means red, but it means the
colored and rathmell Red means white.
It's an expression in Arabic, they say red for the people who are not black, not colored.
So I've been sent, in other words to the black and the white to the whole of the world sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
as I said, inshallah, next time
I will look at Arabia, we will look at
its state and situation, and we will look at
some of the lineage of some of the,
the people before the sort of atheism coming and what was the religious situation in Arabia
and the ancestry of Rasulullah saw some some some of the historical thing. And before we come, then finally to the birth of Islam and continue with the story, we will finish there for today inshallah, because I want to give 10 minutes or so,
for question answer on what we've covered today and what we covered in the previous two sessions, if anybody have questions.
Yeah, I mentioned that in the first session.
I mentioned to you the Sahaba saying
that Aveda was a novelty, in fact, that he said I am the one one of the ones who learns it off by heart as soon as I saw the actually. And we have from the Sahaba authentic, what exactly this was having
gatherings where he's teaching them the Sunnah. He's teaching them so they Saba say I heard a message Allah saying this. So teaching them specifically having sessions and teaching them things.
Yeah. And many of them are writing them down.
And last time an indication that I mentioned that, for example, the story of
a doula in the US if you remember I mentioned in the first session, the one of the things that he was doing writing everything from Rasulullah saw Salaam and the disbelievers were mocking him at one time and saying, why is it that you write everything from from him there was a dip believe in from Mohammed? Because sometimes he's sad sometimes he's angry, sometimes you happy you just writing anything without trying to imply just wasting your time right now.
So I'm loving I live in the US came. And he reports he's one of the big reporters of a hottie came and said, they reported this the Messenger of Allah, the Messenger of Allah said,
by in by him in whose hands is my soul, right from me everything right from your very fun cost nothing but truth come from Mr. Nothing to do the Quran. This has to do with has
to do with his, his doings, his sayings, and his as we sat across, so he wasn't the only one. Others are writing. And their students also came writing and became even more prolific even above were not writing. His students were many and majority I'm writing from Abu hurayrah. And those manuscripts carried on passing and exchanging and became available to those generations, who came later. But of course, many majority of those manuscripts are not available to us, doesn't mean I say, doesn't mean to say because they've extinct that we can just throw it all away, because the scholars who wrote from them reference those manuscripts, those who came the generation after the generations after
them. So yes, absolutely. There's lots of evidence that prophesies are not only encouraging, but he's giving sessions where he's teaching the son.
There's no evidence for that, although venkata was concerned from certain companies, because they transmit reliable hurayrah.
Hot top because he was concerned because Abu huraira and one or two other companies, sometimes transmitted Israeli art as well, and therefore scholars and Sahaba at the time and taboo came were careful depending on what the report was about to not mix it with Australia meaning that what that a taken also from learning from the People of the Book from the Jews and the Christians.
But nothing like this have
no no companion, or halifa came and actually stopped this. They're reporting themselves.
Who is mentioned age reporting, how do you think self
if that was the is that this is this is total misappropriate misuse of those who tried to denounce some because the evidence is strongly against them. And this has been especially dealt with by the likes of most of our alpha me if you want to read his works. Yeah, he destroys these arguments very easily. And he's,
he's still alive. He's a very well known Mahatma, who deals with some of these issues that some of these some of these orientalist brought most of the source of these from orientalist and other Muslims and jumped on the bandwagon the Learn from the orientalist rather from the illuma Hadith, which is from the experts on the teeth themselves.
Any other questions
related to the topic itself related to the topic first, please?
Anything on today or those will be before?
Okay. Hi. Yes, we heard just before the namaz the
commandment of holiness.
You should give some time before it absolutely.
No, he didn't mean it live like either.
It's because we made a policy in the masjid here. That we will give a few minutes and allowance for that. It is not absolutely necessary and
He didn't mean it like that, because we made a policy. You'll see that because we give a few minutes some of us just sit down we don't do anything.
Because the tour of cars is mentioned in authentic hadith the prophet SAW solemn, before McGreevy said pray to the cause. He mentioned it three times from his home, but we have no evidence ever. No Sahabi no report saying that they saw the mess of a lot doing to the cause before neglect so from his call though, we see that it must be beneficial that's why he said it's the last one. So it is so not not more akkada not like the two after Maghrib Well hi mo acaba is not stressed upon totally about like not no offer is voluntary but rewarding it because the professors themselves so for that reason, we decided
that even if we're not going to pray will give chance for those who want to pray as a facility
and if we lose is not a big deal but because we made a policy that's why
where the money was objecting because we decided together I just thought from last time because the one thing stood up last time I was here and wanted a look to me he wanted to start straight away if I thought maybe we changed the policy but we haven't
Yeah, and therefore to shorten that
and that I bought the following policy to respect him and he's in his principle is right. But if you ask me what is a priority and to shorten that? It is fine because like Mr. Mike famously said he was running a circle teaching and the Iran when and some of his students want got up to go and pray. sadhana but not maka would say guide Walker That's my understanding of it. And he said to them, this is better than what you're going to do this famous for Imam Malik extra extra knowledge in my most famous opinion Olimar themselves as well is better than extra ibadah.
And they got that from from the sun novice on this idea.
We've only mentioned before
you know, this is only mentioned. This is only meant because other others for example, further if you take it the sole assassin never left the two summers off budget even when he was traveling. So it's not very stressed upon and I will say it is so nice not to leave it even though it is still not the same as the fun.
Yeah, and then we have four four before God, which is mica because he mentioned it sallallahu Sallam in its its virtues stressed upon its virtues in a hadith and the two after the hood and one report in fact to before the hurt so if you see somebody trying to before go in also come from an authentic deep. Yeah. So two or four before and after lower.
slightly awesome. Again for is mentioned but similar to the Muslim not stressed upon
but to after mllib is part of those which are stressed upon his share many people don't realize this for Isha nothing is mentioned by the way to or for a majority of our whenever we will pay for play pray for as though they're praying for before God, it is not like that. Guaranteed It is not like that there is nothing authentic about it.
If you want to come early, if you want to pray for to nothing, it's up to you. At least the hospital must you will cover the true when you come into the masculine will come a boss
if you do too,
but too after the fall of Asia, again, I like to after for for stressed upon
panic I have seen people come in and do that
before and will
not necessarily Great. Great.
Yes, yes. Yeah. And that would be recommended if if it's recommended in machine What about harm? marginal reward, of course multiplied so many times.
Juma I mentioned before as well in the hotbed for Serato Juma
is a big topic to actually decipher because
there is nothing specific about the number of records before the Salah stands with the man
What we have from Rasulullah saw Islam is praising a person who comes in praise comes early. Of course, we know you know, the famous of these about the one who gets
early getting the reward until the sacrificed camel cow or sacrifice as a time gets near and then an egg at the end this is coming early being recommended. Yeah. But second to that the books are mentioned and then they pray as much as what is written for them. He left us open. So there's no four or two, he maybe do 12
maybe you two. But there's nothing about this setting as though is full before you do, as many people do. To the extent that we made it a ritual that only when the first advan goes we stand up and pray for a cause as though we're praying for some Navajo. Where do we get that from?
Nothing from the sun, I'll tell you.
Nothing from the sun. It's fine to do it. No, I'm not saying it's wrong. But I explained on Juma day about this event as well. And this event the first one that we say we call it the first but it is conferred upon because it was instituted letter by horsmonden a fan
but out of love or respect from in the Muslim oma carried on with it. But this one was much earlier it was in the marketplace. Not like we do it, we do the first we don't do it same as it's not in there founded it, it's fine. I have no big problem with it. I'm just saying to remove this idea that you know, cuz you can be praying before the alarm goes. And maybe you don't get up from pray when the alarm has gone. Although the idea again, of praying to the gods after dawn is also is also a good thing. But to recast, just to remove the idea of this fixed idea. So before Juma I would say there is nothing fixed but you are encouraged to pray as many records as you can
depending on when you arrive
I it's fine reading grants some community grants some can be doing some now at least I would say you should do the two footer here.
Yeah. And if you do that because because Salah you see you reading Quran in it anyway. But you're getting more reward because you didn't recruit and so do
you understand? Okay, if you don't know so much grant the city read the Quran.
And then of course, is the the slide itself which is total cause as tough as it is today, because it is not been lessened or shorter it is to recurse.
what we get from Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam what is authentic, that when he was in the masjid, he would pray for a cause afterwards, if he left the machine and went home, he would pray only to the cause. Not foreign to.
Yeah, although we have from Oklahoma that he sometimes did foreign to foreign the machine and go back home and do to
add, but nothing to do with the equivalent of
anything to do with lower, there's no comparison to be made in the number of records will go. That's very important to understand.
And before I finished with that an important thing as well is from a decent publicize that even if you arrived in the machine and the hot bias going on, it is well known from not only prophesize some saying, telling us a hobby to do it from his coal as well. If you come to the masjid and the the Imam is standing during the hotbar prayer to records, but make them show
people, many people think and there are opinions, there's different opinions on this, but directly from the Hadees what you get, for example 100 fear, they say it is not acceptable. This is macro to standard due to the cause. The Hadees is there. What Hannah fear say? I personally disagree with them. They say that was only for that Sahabi?
It's very difficult to do that. Where's your evidence? Because you have to have evidence to say it was for him. Because if something comes this is this is jurisprudence. If something has been taught openly publicly by a solid lossless alum, then it is taken by its general application for everybody. Unless the prophesize says, or the savvy ask, Is this only for me? And he says yes, this is only for you. I'm saying if you don't have that evidence to general application, which is what the majority of Allah argue against the Hanafi on this point, I say no.
Because the issue with the Santa Fe is they are very strict about nobody doing any kind of talking, including doing a tour of cars when the hottie is speaking. They are very strict with that. There is
I have a problem the HANA fear therefore of the amount coming I like I do when I come and I say As salam o Alaikum, and the fish as mcru for the month that says Hello.
Why? Because they say, because the mousseline have to say why like a Muslim now, and they shouldn't be talking when he's there.
I'm giving you what what the basis is I disagree with it. But that's that's a different issue. I'm just giving you the
shortened from for Rico
is inclusive of the photo book. So that makes up. Some said that. Some said that they said it was equivalent, someone even there's no evidence for it, by the way. Absolutely no single evidence. Dr. malarkey of money uses this as well. He goes further than that.
And of course, I respect him as a scholar, but I disagree with this issue.
And those who say there is no one single Hadith from the prophet SAW Selim, or from the Sahaba saying this, by the way, saying this, the only thing that is mentioned is a statement of honorable hottub saying this, which is not authentic to him, if you apply the rules of heavy
staining of Omar bin Khattab saying this is equivalent for the to dismiss, but others actually who take it, they try and interpret it from the ground, because they just can't seem to get over the issue that the Juma is not for. The reality is some of them went further than that, and and made the hotbar in Arabic language only because they're saying it is like you are praying to the cause. And when they go down that line, and therefore they have this idea of absolutely no speaking, tell you something the evidence against that idea is so strong from Rasulullah Sessoms practice during Juma hotbar you have Sahaba coming in. Yeah, and I mentioned this to you before, during the football man
standing up saying Savi saying, Yara sola matassa When is the woman the hour come? And he said it three times. So even though Sahaba was saying because generally was etiquette than the man's talking and nice the sola You be quiet. You listen. But the prophet SAW some never told him.
After free time ask asked this question. He said, he said yes. And don't speak again. I mean,
that component comes and says, Don't talk in front of, Oh, no, he didn't say that. Didn't say no, not in this context. No, no, no.
Don't raise your voice. This has nothing to do with that. And I'm not saying in this country. So you can't apply it here. So no point mentioning that it's for them.
you're mentioning it as though it had relevance. It has no relevance here.
You say it's not in this context, the way I mentioned it, standing and saying it's not a hobby for goodness sake, every hobby was initially but yes, but but unless he tells him or for you to tell him off.
Unless the profits are some telltale for you to tell him.
I see him his negative. Ground is clear. The profits are some new the ground. If grant was saying be absolutely silent grounds, not saying that. Because all of the hookah is not grumbling, recycling.
Grand recycling is part of the hook but the rest is the promise. awesomes word is a hottie reminding, like the DA that the promises some was like mangaluru jaysh. He was like a commander of the army warning them about Hellfire coming in this poem is words. Of course there was a from the Quran all the time. There are many occasions actually, other times I'll be coming to say Yara sola, please make dua for us. Yeah, because we are animals are dying because it's been a drought. So the public saw some in the middle of Africa, raises his hands and starts making the offer what he's asking, he comes a week or two later and say jasola, the same person met Dr. jasola, because the
rain came after the war. So the Savi comes a week later again, in the middle of the football game. Yeah. If that was a guidance was widely publicized, or not tell him off there and then and say, Stop this, they're not allowed to speak. You have no evidence for that. Except from the etiquette of not speaking and disturbing is an etiquette.
But not because it's not because he's he's not because he's in prayer, because of Africa. You know, and that's why I said don't make a noise.
I'm all for that don't come in and start talking and chatting. This is not allowed. Yeah, but not to the strict sense that somebody has some Olimar took it to make it as though their Juma is destroyed because all these hobbies I just would have been destroyed and this hobby. Then came the
We can say jasola can you make dua for the rain to fall around this or not on top of it because the roofs are being destroyed now the building so wrestlers are lifted under metal again and it carries on with the with the with the Sahaba honorable hottub famous strong Hadees that he's standing delivering hookah as a medium of minimal smile near fan comes in late during his football is saying what time do you call this? So it breaks off from football and I was talking to him that we are conversation
so all these evidences destroyed this idea actually of some of the other man who came with the idea that it's like salah and those who actually say it's like Salah there are very weak ground there are those who make and therefore you see some some of our people they actually do this and do this in Salah in the hope as though they're in Salah there is no evidence for this at all is it better?
I don't criticize a heavily is fine you know because he's not Salah is taught by going on. Yeah, but he came from this mentality and this idea. And as the Allah Allah said, How is it Salah when all this talk is going to exchange with the Sahaba going on? The Imam is facing with his back to the Qibla what kind of selasa
Why is he going back to the cube life he's in Salah he never did the Kabira tala ROM, which is the prophesized sunset. The opening of Salah is
the closing of it is the slim Solomonic at the end of the day a salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah either once or twice does he?
If you arrive, good point is see if you arrive, you missed the hook, what you came in the secondary call of Juma
is your Salah accepted. If you stand up on praying on the Raka is your Juma Salah accepted? Nobody said it's not accepted.
I'll tell you something else Hannah fear or even more wider on this. They say if you arrived in the Tushar code of the second record, the shortcode. Yeah, your Juma slot is exactly the standard compared to all the rest disagree with them on this.
Okay, well, that one and you're hungry later below me
