Continuing with our topic
of Chicago, Irvine,
the deep explanation of the 1400 an hour week, last two sessions we concentrated more of an introduction. first session was about the issue of hobbyists and some definition a little bit about where it fits its evidence in regards to the Quran. And what how important it is
something on about
the historical analysis of holies. Last time, we look more at the issue of our SAS sector, as they are known as the six authentic
books, which I explained last time is not the best
title for those books that are included in that. But perhaps as shouldn't be called the winner, the winner sit. He had these
awful hobbies of he had to use a hurry for number one, which is books on heavy because as I explained last time, what they were, who were the ones who put them together, etc. We discussed that last time we mentioned something about the famous book. Mischka scuttle masabi also,
so I want to move on now I want to say something
about this particular book that we're going to be going through
and the ahadeeth that are compiled with it of course it's compiled by
a man a man never we
never we Oh, yeah, in the shadow of
his name. abuser Korea, sometimes we call him with this cornea, abuser Korea, even though he has this cornea. The father of the Korea he he didn't have any children called South Korea if you didn't have any children, because he wasn't married. He never got married. So sometimes in in Arab culture, people are given the cornea just like a nickname. A lot of
I don't know why he was given the name
as a career,
but it is mentioned. You also find in some places it's mentioned as yahia in there shut off Mohit Dean,
Mohit Dean when Dean was not part of his name, some alama and some people and followers called being more hideous. It said in some of the
sila writings his co directing now was talking about Sita of Unknowing. When I say see right now, or we could say
Tajima, Tajima has the same meaning as sera.
So we don't get confused. It is the biographies and his biography. It's mentioned that some say that he didn't
Like the the title of more intense more of a title, the one who revived the religion of course given by others who's who saw the
the great value of Imam nawawi and his teachings and His fekir His writings. Yeah. And that's why that title sometimes there although it's not part of his name,
no, we, as we've many majority of the scholars, you find it links back to generally where they're born, or what tribes they come from a said, Noah, his
village just outside Damascus, so he was in the Schengen Area, although he traveled around but that was his place.
In contrast to many Allah ma Imam, no, he doesn't come from a line of scholars. He hasn't got any his parents, grandparents, you know, grandfathers, etc, lineage of scholars, in contrast to many others.
And he was a humble background. And he's known for
being said that it means that of mega means. mega means his main job after studying and he was very clever after studying Islam, and his main focus beyond Quran and Hadith was chef effect. He sheffy
he studied and was a master in it. And he taught it as well in Damascus, in the various schools of a center where he studied himself. So
said the Born in 631 hijiri and died in 676. So he died young, he died only 44 years of age
44 years of age and
like, he explained all of these
little books that some of these books got to bring it with me, I think
it's actually part of an introduction to his most famous encyclopedia elements more,
much more, which is his real real encyclopedia in Sheffield effect. Fish shudehill mahad.
Li Shirazi Shiraz, he came 100 years before him. Yeah, and he wrote a mohawk, which is like a summary, edited version of Shafi. So um, no, we came and he did a much more based on that. But with his greater detail grant somehow given the evidence says, remarkable week.
His work elements more which he didn't complete, actually he died before he completed it he completed only they say nine volumes or so of this work. He asked one of his famous students in the lab bar to complete
the work after him must have been in his final illness that is asked him to complete it, but he was unable to do that. Duck, he had been a sub key who came sometime after
as Suki himself is a great scholar. In Shafi effect, he added a couple of volumes to it, but later on,
I think probably the 1900s some people measure, another scholar added some more volumes, although some people criticize that But anyway, he himself has nine volumes of cold elements more when you talk here about an image more, then that is the most read one of the most famous works of a novel.
It has the same caliber
as other other mass say, on the same destiel of the work by in nikodem.
In nepo Dharma is humbling him now bergama wrote a similar work in humble effect, called I'll move me along with me. fi shudehill move to some alpha rocky
move the son of philipe, who was a humbling scholar was again written before locked so meaning a summarizing of the humble effect. Then in the Kodama comes and he builds on that and his work is of some volumes.
More money, which are much more I haven't had chance to study on money I've been studying for some years now
in Hamlet, but the good thing about these both these works is among a number we and Edna ppargamma, the humbling they didn't stick just to blindly to their mother. But especially if Nipa Dharma
mentioned that I know what he does for dharma. I've studied it for some years myself, so I know what he does. And mentioned the opinions of the other alumni from the McGraw Hill.
Yeah. So locally, for example, Raul mentioned on issues, the opinion of Abu hanifa Yeah. of Shafi. The various opinions opinions transmitted of humble and he's a humbling himself. Yeah. Or who mentioned opinions, not just that the pendant opinions were the difference opinion of the Sahaba. He's especially very
foremost in mentioning what a bill Monza says in the month. Some said he was Shafi but actually he wasn't he was independent, which the hidden scholar aside from and that's why I always said there was more than four scholars. There wasn't just Abu hanifa and Maddie can sheffy and after them the handle of course, there was many, but their students meant that my VA had become very popular. Historically, if you go vessel you find in the Kodama for example. You mentioned the opinion of Buffon in the London and outside. Others aside from Shafi Abu hanifa, his two most famous
as they're known as Sahiba, the most two most famous students are Abu hanifa, who are
two most famous students.
Yeah, we'll use hardly ever use of the judge who's the other one?
Mohammed a shavon in basic shape.
I will have some mama didn't know hustle and shave and maybe you had a mental block myself.
Mohammed Abdullah Hasina, Shay Bernie and Abu so there is two most famous students and most famous transmitters of the Hanafi madhhab. They were immediate students.
So Edna Kodama in the humbly fit in his book, Al Madani. That's his approach. So go back to Ghana, and we'll actually come outside the mother, where he feels when I disagree with this, and I think I think this is the right opinion, unknowing is similar in that regard in a much more similar method, and we're
really following it off. The leaders of them alive. Imam Shafi, for example antimonial all of them said, this is an opinion I have if you find a Hadith, which is authentic, that counters my opinion, then that is my Muslim.
So this is the way that these great scholars follow him know he is
known famously. After mount Shafi in I mean, he's coming Of course, over 400 years after Imam Shafi Imam Shafi, he died in 205 hegira. When I talk about his era, then you need to add to it about 620 odd years to get ad. I'll leave that to you. I'm not gonna give you both myself he sees yet to work in history gives me a better idea of how far they are from the time of us, all of us from Nigeria. Okay.
But that's we use simple equation at 620 or whatever, to get the idea what, so a mom, no, are we in the talking about seventh century hegira? Okay.
He and before him a few 100 years before him was a Rafi. And he Rafi was very famously, he made the chef image. So popular so they say raw, very big. He was the chef a of his time. Rafi is so famous, because of the standing he had and how much he spread Shafi method as a great scholar. So the two people when they say, the two people of Abu hanifa, Yusef and Mohammed, Hassan or Shivani. They say the two people of Imam Shafi although
They're not his direct students now they're coming hundreds year later, Rafi and unknowing
right a rough a unknowing
the somebody said 100 years back, the people are now must have been surrounded by Shafi and this person who said this people are now all rough it is rough as all number ways rather than being Nepalese.
Yeah rather mean never we, meaning they don't even find the property just follow the opinions of Shafi and Rafi and Rafi. And now we and Rafi. But anyway, that's just to say that stuff famous they became, in chef a mother and mom know what we so
mom, no, we, as I said, was some I was reading somewhere in here I mentioned some of the books. My memory
was well known to reside, as I said, Of Megan means his income was some say he had an income from his teaching students for some years, and then he will stop that. And his father used to, it's not very clear, to be honest as to he must have had some sort of income, otherwise he wouldn't be able to survive. Yeah, so sometimes people exaggerate things and make it as though somebody had nothing. It's impossible for him to live like that, because he's not known for begging of other people and picking from his students. He's well known for serving as many Olimar, as scholars have always done in serving the students actually
serving the students. In contrast to what I've seen of some moms and allamah of present day, and they have their students running around.
I've seen more learners and movies, once they get, they get them washing their socks and taking their clothes and bringing them shopping and stuff like that. I've always disliked that my law said was something from that. But the real scholars great scholars, they never have this kind of thing.
And they're not this time they actually serve them. So they'll serve them tea or
not tea at that time. But if they were in the present time, they'd be serving them teeth, looking after the needs of the students here, servicing them in fitment to them. And that was another way as well, which fits in line with what he wrote, which is being printed a separate book book it be nice to have it translated in English, but I still did it in Arabic a couple of times, when needed time to look around or benefit from it. It was a short thing taken from his introduction to Elon Musk more in his introduction is something he'd in titles under a chapter
a Marlin well, Mater Allen, the applicants of the teacher and the student,
the adek advocate of the teacher and the student.
And most of it, it's beautiful. Yeah. Beautiful. Firstly, reminding that the teacher and the student about the right intention,
teacher understood about the right intention for study. Why are you doing
to focus and, and also
to focus the intention purely for Allah subhanho wa Taala, which will give the benefit otherwise there'll be no benefit, or minimum benefit. If you're doing it to show off to people. If you're doing it for worldly gains, then in the end, there'll be no hallucinate, no good intention and therefore, understanding of the deen especially is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So close, which only he knows will give you that reaping rewards and the fruits.
So in the area of the
applicants, some of the articles on on the teacher, he talks about how to deal with the students how to be forgiving and gentle with the students how to encourage the students how to be
full of humility and not arrogant with the students, etc, etc. He goes through a whole list of things, and how
this has not only been taught by Norway, this has been taught by others as well. From the student side how respect is given to the knowledge
for marble hottie for example, the governor in his later life,
requested him to come and teach
his sons in the palace. mumble hide refused.
He said because knowledge
You need to travel to gain knowledge, not Mike, that knowledge doesn't come to you.
And this is very important for Stuart for other students to realize.
And his practice. I mean, personally, I've been traveling for 20 plus years, on a weekly basis almost from here for a couple of hours to travel to Leeds. For my shift, I've traveled in my holidays going abroad,
to gain knowledge and understanding of the game. I know there's some brothers and sisters here for forget me traveling two hours from Manchester area who have been going to shut up from not only not only for quite a few years now, and they go down by part of traveling down to London, or Cambridge or Oxford, they've been doing for many years on a weekly basis, taking out a wall Sunday away from their work or families.
That's the kind of sacrifices needed when you show respect without knowledge.
Only with that
is then because if you have a real desire for it, real desire with hulu's with good intention, then it will come. It will come there. But if you just see as our Well, I got time today, there's no football match on right? Am I missing better to do, all right? Or I'm old and decrypted. Now, I might as well go to the mosque and listen to another talk. If that's the attitude, while you, as they say in English, you
report you saw the same idea here. The idea is what we put in how much desired for what purposes Well, what is the person? What is the intention?
And if it is too, it must always be to grow closer to Allah smart Allah.
To teach is to fulfill our responsibility to Allah,
which Allah His Messenger put on those of us who learn to give to others.
And to learn is again, the idea first and foremost is that I understand my been more or come close to Allah subhanaw taala. Sir, can be a better servant to Allah, that must be the purpose primarily
to become a better practicing
So some of the etiquettes he mentions for the students and the teacher about coming in nice dress about smelling nice as coming to the mosque, you know, but
he stresses especially on the teacher because they're setting the example but also for the students as well. Not just to come willy nilly not to be having their own discussion nowadays, it would be not to be sitting on the mobile phone, wouldn't it?
Yeah, we're having the private discussion, when the teacher is actually teaching and the way of asking questions. Yeah, with the etiquette of respect, even though you may be disagreeing with the teacher, he says, but how you disagree? Yeah. is and how you put your question, if there's an etiquette to it, and added to it.
One or two of the things which I disagree with a mom no way with the great respect for him is what he wrote in his articles. And others I'm not the first one to disagree with him to put my I don't put myself on a pedestal of that to say I disagree with him, because I'm so great. No others have disagreed with that as well. But it's interesting that he mentioned them, which fits with the fact that he didn't get married and he died at 44 without being married and having so in the under the etiquettes of a student he quotes others as well as himself quotes not from the professors and from others as saying the one who gets married it says though, he's gone to the sea and the sea for the
Arabs, you know, it's like going to disaster destruction, as I mentioned to you before in this era, right and the one that was children well, he says though, he's been broken.
So he's doing it he's saying What if you get married have children? In other words, it's gonna hinder your progress in gaining knowledge and in your studies, so I can see where it's coming from from one side, but it is exaggerated too much almost against the Sunnah of Rasulullah Islam who made it must have at least at least when he said and Academy assume that if I'm mon Robinson, that the valley suddenly nicaya from my son. Yeah, whoever runs away from it or shuns it. They're not from amongst me.
I don't still say that's the reason all ml came after the give various ideas or why no, uh, No, we didn't get married. Allow. But we don't say he was trying to avoid the son of a sort of lost and that's for sure. That's for sure. Some say perhaps one of the only Sooners and no we didn't do in his life was getting married.
Do you know?
How do you know? You know all this unless you performed? That's exaggerating? Okay, that's going too far. putting it on such a high pedestal that he did all the other sumners.
Yeah, number we are accepted and get married? Well, no, we don't say that. But we say didn't do that. So for whatever reasons, and sometimes you can be preoccupied in,
in studying and teaching that you don't have actually time, in that period of time, I don't believe that he decided that I'm never going to get married. It just so happened, he died at 44. Some people get married even after that don't work.
So that's how we see it. Although his statements in the article, some students
are a bit gone a bit too far. And if we apply them to our context today, and even in the context of that time,
then there's an encouragement by the prophet systole and actually in Hades to get married isn't that? Yeah, my Shabaab
or young people, whoever from Hong Xiu is able to get my day should get married
rasoolillah or something? Yeah. And he didn't put in there. Rasulullah saw some didn't put in that a statement saying unless you're studying that you don't need to
say that. didn't say that. That's why other Allah mas scholars actually said, for a young person, and they talked to you. Most of the time, they're talking about young men. Partly because young women for them are on the equation of studies. This is a cultural thing, which I disagree with again, okay. This, the idea of studying the deen is contained in women. So young men and young women. So when they're writing, they're talking about young men. So the guy the man's gonna be occupied with his wife. Oh, hang on. What about if the young woman wants to study and she's gonna be occupied with the husband?
Yeah. So they don't mention that they always talk about the man being preoccupied with the wife. So my so he quotes, and you know, in the end, I'd say in a, in a gentle way, but there's no shyness when you're studying these works, and what he says, He quotes others and himself saying, the man who's, who falls between the size of his wife from him, knowledge will disappear and disappeared, it loses all
meaning Don't get involved in marital life. That's what he's talking about. He caught Sunday's missing this kind of statement again.
it may be okay for some, maybe that way for some male or female, actually, I would say but for others, actually getting married takes their mind off what's going on around them what you think people have got hormones when they young people in their, you know, teens and 20s. Allah for those desires in the male and the female. So if you're not fulfilling those desires, I will also go the other way and say you're going to find it very difficult to focus on studying.
And that's why other scholars exactly argue that, as I'm arguing and saying I disagree with the great amount of never being on this issue, on this issue.
Personally, I will give my own example, if I was in my 20s, and I couldn't carry on studying to mine, till the 40s
without getting married and fulfilling that which Allah put in me as a natural desire, I'm talking about myself. And I think many of you might feel the same. But there are always exceptions to the rule.
And then you put in today's society, and where we are and what we're surrounded by, that's a completely different factor. And imagine now that compared to the society at the time of Imam nawawi, living in Damascus in the seventh century, his role in the Muslim world
and person so when you read these works, you have to put all that in place. I don't believe in mum and no, we wouldn't have said that now in present day society No chance. So you give this scholar the context of the time and place for you give him an awesome yeah, there's an excuse for what they're saying because they're doing it in their context and time.
Even though scholars of that time would still disagree with him because Sahaba prophesize alum is sending a different way. They have desires at that time in Medina society and the promises encouraging them and their scholars.
Which of the scholars of the Sahaba and they were greatest scholars and the great man Mmm, no, we Yeah.
They're all got married and have children. Yeah.
So at that didn't hinder them today. So the idea saw them saying all the knowledge will disappear. And all this will happen. We didn't happen with the Sahaba, the tambien, who came after them.
So these arguments, this is some of the stuff in there, I'm just mentioning to you, that when you read it, then you read those things. Don't take everything in, be critical when you study,
be critical and all ama, and scholars who taught students, they want their students to be critical to think, to think.
And those are the best students who are thinking students who are questioning students questioning, as he says he's well, and as I was taught,
questioning is so important. Don't be shy from questioning.
on the public side,
like it said, and Mujahid said
two things which
prevent a person from learning, shyness, extreme shyness, or slower
extreme shyness, so that's why I mean, I should say, she says, Nat, Mona Lisa, and Lisa unsolved, the best of women were the women of the unsolved their shyness didn't prevent them asking questions about the dean, because they'll just come out with it. You also llaman Menzies what
everybody's sitting around.
Or a woman comes on. She says, You're so humble. Mommy is just sitting there, some of the Sahaba there. So this woman comes in, he sees authentic hobbies. She says, My husband's private party is a bit it's a bit like this hanging handkerchief.
The soccer all embarrassed like this, where she just comes out with it.
She's because she was trying to get separated from me. She's trying to say he's impotent, is not able to say just go out with him.
In front of everybody. Promises don't say How dare you say that? And he's saying, you know, go out and no, he just answered the questions in depth.
the idea of
extreme shyness is not being having good etiquette, asking the question you asked with good screenshots? Because when you ask a question, it clarifies for others as well. And it clarifies for you what you may be confused with, and you go away with the same confusion. He stayed with it because he never asked. He never asked. An arrogance is quite clear, because this means well, I do everything this guy does know what he's talking about.
I don't need to ask him.
You see what I'm saying? So arrogance, books a block in the way straight away anyway. I don't need to learn from anybody I can do it all myself. So in line with that is also
something I learned even though the prophesized limb said beliau annuale, via transmit from me, even if it's one idea. So if you learn something, and you're sure about it, then learning and teaching content play simultaneously. Why do I say that? Because I was involved in dollar work in Islamic organizations in teaching and spreading Islam, Muslim or non Muslim in communities with young people and others, since the early 80s.
Okay, and I was learning as I was going along from various features along the way.
a decade in the 90s, especially they started some some of the young people went away, and started a went away abroad, etc, quite rightly, to study Dean and went to study it. From Shu Han from scholars.
But some of them, not all of them. When they came back, they started criticizing those who were doing Tao work.
I'll tell you in the 80s, there were very few people giving talks in English in universities and schools. Me and a few others were few and far between. It was like a big one people. Oh, my God is speaking English. is explaining Islam in English. Yeah. So it was a now it's totally changed. But I'm talking about the actors. It was a time when you know, somebody spoke in English. You get the guy with the orange hat on his head speaking with a Pakistani accent. Yeah, what he and I eat is just like Christmas. We used to go like this cringe and try and hide at all please. He's representing us on the TV. Yeah, Counselor Musk's mentioning no names. So that's the kind of thing
you generally had. Okay, so when somebody spoke English, like
about Islam or about a shock to the system for people. Anyway, my point was some people came back young people, again, they learn the basics after a few years and become shoe from scholars, but because it hadn't really, wisdom comes with time and experience of life. So some of them say pointing the finger and saying to other young people don't take Islam for these people. They haven't studied Islam at the feet of scholars, then they just, you know, so don't listen to her.
So I spoke to some of them at a time to kill us.
This is ridiculous. It is true. It is true. Nevertheless, like I know, he says and others.
Many said it Be careful, Dean, Dean lean is the most important thing for us, isn't it? it decides how hereafter
no one of the said be careful who you take it from? Why do I say it now? Number one, Google. Be careful where you get your information from?
Not Not to say that everything on Google is rubbish. But are you and are you qualified to be able to decipher that this what it's saying? And is correct. And this is rubbish?
Which site? Is it? And which scholar is it? So be careful. Be careful where you're taking. Be careful, as Amanda we says, taking Deen from people who just have studied being from books without access to scholars.
without access to scholars, now, that is not an absolute by any means. It's not an absolute, because you can learn a lot from books.
I don't say I like to, as I mentioned many times to publicly, I don't advise people generally to go and study Sahih Bukhari and Muslim. Why not? Because it needs an explanation. That's why.
But if I'm studying, or I encourage you, to study that the seed of bibliography, for example.
So if I'm, if you're having a study circle, and you access it, nicus Cathy's tafsir, he's given you the explanation there.
And especially if it's in the English language, so now you can use that to run a study circle, because you have a reference point, it is from the book. But the explanation has been given by like a fear in the book, where, where you don't understand something, even in the explanation, when you leave off and say I need to check, I need to check. So this is not an absolute,
that you can't go to the books and reference and teach from that. You can, you can, but when you're talking about serious study, in depth, then people who study just from the books, and I've seen those people as well over the years, by the way, they have no reference or minimal reference to scholars.
Right, they tend to go into deviation, because they're always thinking it with their own, they had no avenue to throw back off, or to check with, or reference with or to discuss with their ideas.
So there's a danger with it. Yeah. Hence, a reference to somebody who's being with scholars, and then they're transmitting and teaching others. And they have, this has always been the way Yeah, study and teach. You study and teach, you don't just teach. So scholars themselves are in the process of learning. And one of the humility and important humility of scholars, and there must always be learning.
When a scholar decides that said, I've done with the books, I know,
he goes back to level one, in my opinion. Yeah. So never stop learning and study.
So that's, that's an important thing again, which
remember, we mentioned
in this booklet, there are many other beautiful things in this
handout about questioning, of course, questioning is another way of realizing that people are understanding who's sitting in the audience.
I've mentioned it lots of times I mentioned it again.
My classes, there may be some that I've taken in the past a discussion classes we all get together we have a good discussion and we deliberate on something.
These are not those classes.
You know that I'm not saying you're not asked questions, of course you do. But in these types of classes when I'm teaching something in depth, which is not for the average Joe public out there, actually majority of the people from our community, this will go right over their heads through.
I'm telling you, Well, I think what is your the last two sessions we had majority majority of the public out there was
too, too detailed me too deep for me.
When I started fickle Syrah, we had, I remember, I remember in the first session or two, we had quite a big turnout young people, everybody the hustle and bustle, so I'll be telling a nice story, like jackin, or if any age group can come and it will be nice and rosy, and everything and easy. So as soon as I did the first session, of second third session, most of them disappeared and never came back again. I felt for them, but I said that this was gonna be deep, and it was gonna be frequency, that's gonna be more scholarly level, right. So that's why even for this, when publicises said, not for under 1516 year olds, they're gonna have something,
ability to be able to grasp.
What we're actually saying. And in that, therefore, is, as I said to you, again, is not making nor making
alama of the past. We talked about writing in the first session of this. And this idea that people didn't write is nonsensical. Some people had masterful memories, no doubt that majority of people were writing,
majority of people were writing from the scholars. And I think the scholars were teaching if they found people turning up,
session after session, and actually not writing anything or not taking in, did have something to say about it. So in a way of encouragement, so I encourage that you do write things. And because the important thing and students were always encouraged and one of the things you know, we mentioned is about revising?
revising your work, you'll be shocked at the shelves of books of my handwriting that I've got over the years. And you will also shock how many times I've gone through trying to revise, you know, I've got a memory unless I revise my work.
So in other ways, is hard work.
revising your work is crucial, editing it, reallocating it because what you learn from 10 years on is not what knowledge you had now I look at my work. So my work writings from 20 years ago, I think, Oh my god, what level was at then? Look what I'm writing? Yeah, sometimes it's nonsense. Other times it's very shallow. So you can actually see, so that revision and reading books, again.
My colleagues, including students from the
students in Islamic knowledge, from the classes from wherever tenido was asked, often asked,
How do you read? Do you do scan reading?
Yeah. And that's the narrow because I said no, not even in English. I've never been a scan reader. I don't do scan reading. I can't. I read to study. In fact, any book I read, unless it was Count Dracula, Bram Stoker's I didn't make notes on that one. But any return really machines. Any other book, generally, I read, I make notes. That's how I study. I don't, don't do scan, reading, finding a waste of time. And then reading a book second and third time, because it's so so important. And most of that we learned from the Quran, Quran you can go with that. Grant is the par excellence example that isn't it?
Because you can go back to the same area again and again and again, different stat type 10 times in your life, and they'll still give you something when you didn't get before.
So again, these are some hints and clues about studying and most of it is about being serious, of course.
Are we serious? Which reminds me
another thing over the years, I've come across students
of space here Muslims, a number of people have said,
I wish I had I wish I knew Arabic language. Or I wish I knew to do it. I
wish I studied this. I wish I had a circle. And these are wishes of fools because one of the most important things if you are serious, that the wishes have got to change into actual plan.
And the plan has to be executed. That requires discipline,
discipline. So very few people I found over the years all around me in the stomach work actually in Islamic Dawa, who was serious about study, serious, serious about getting a greater understanding.
And that's very important if you if you
want to go that way, nevertheless, with something like Shut up, urbane and nowhere, the deep politics long and deep analysis of your hobbies, there'll be benefit in a spiritual sense as we go through the day when we get to them, you'll find that even if you're not, and I'm not gonna put you off, because you're thinking, I'm not that series of students to become a scholar, it's not just for scholars to come here that you want to be a star, you will gain benefit from it. Yeah,
inshallah, they'll there'll be a first because in the first pillar, first and foremost, there are statements of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, Alayhi, Salam.
So you will gain benefit, spiritual benefit, benefit of understanding of things, inshallah, from those things, just as a person with the intention of growing closer to Allah smarter becoming a better Muslim. So it's not to put you off saying all these things. And I don't need to be thinking, Well, everything he said, I don't think any of that category. So I know, it's not because I don't want lack of numbers. But I don't want to put you off, I encourage you instead. Yeah, I hope I've encouraged you and said, so the next time we have accused the circle, the three people sitting there in the session, know, when I've given the wrong end of the stick to you, sister, you had your hand
that you can purchase
the book, the reference book we can use, can you write down the name of the book
I couldn't get
depends on which book it was. It was the purpose.
There were two books I mentioned that was to do with aluminum leaf. They were they were books by Professor Muhammad, most of them.
They're both both by him, there was a small one and a bigger one.
there in English, actually very competitive.
Those are not to do with our brain. Those books are only to do with my first session.
really liking everything. That's all right. So if if I want to get that away hope and pray that the audio visual will be available, and you can listen to it and start writing from there. So it has been recorded in Sharla.
Yes, you can make mistakes with that. So ask me at the end, if you've got things like you just touched me about the books, the name of the author, you can ask me things like that. The other stuff more detail than energy come across. It's difficult to take them all in. But I pray and hope that we do a better job in making the audio visual available quicker to you this time than we did with difficult syrup, which by the way, will be coming out very soon as well. It started the process with uploading the thick of syrup on to YouTube.
We started more seriously with that process a couple of months ago, but I should be imminent in Sharla let me know sort of the next hour for you to access that as well. Now
we were on a man and never we
had Allah. So I said that he was a mega means he wasn't into a lavish kind of living.
Beyond that, what else can we say?
They if you read his Tajima or his biography, people have various people have written about it. Somebody did
a thesis on it as well called How to tell her dad. And he mentions more detail about it. About his runnings with the the political powers. Yes, his disagreement with the political powers. When I look at that,
quite honestly, I don't come up with a clear conclusion because
you only get you don't get the full picture of what the reason is of the running with the political powers. One of the stories for example, is
But the leader of the Muslim Omar is wanting to fight the Mongols. And no he is at the time when the Mongols are on one side attacking the Muslim Empire and the Crusades on the other side.
Yeah, so his time, in fact is
just after Salahuddin. But the Crusades are still around. They haven't been completely eradicated from the Sham, they get eradicated after his death of unknown In fact, towards the end of the seventh century, and the Mongols. Certainly around the Mongols
have a defeat in the Sham, the famous battle of angels,
which is the defeat by the Muslim powers in six foot 658 that's during the lifetime of Mr. Norway 658 because he's born in 631. Peter Lang Jr. Loot is the big battle in the sharm when the Mongols come from
Aleppo, etc, near Jerusalem, and they are defeated by the Muslim
Muslim Empire and then the defeats for the Mongol staff one after the other after that, because before that the sack Baghdad Yes, that's already happened, etc. So the Mongols are angry. So one of the stories mentioned about the political powers trying to harness through taxes in the Sham taxes on the Muslim Omar y to provide military assistance to fight of the Mongols and a man know his disagreement with the political power.
Yeah, because the people find it difficult with the taxes. So that's all it mentions, you know, but what he's trying to show he had the
he had the backbone to stand and speak the truth. That's what he's trying to join the story. I don't know the details, perhaps the political power was right and he was wrong.
When you got a mongoose at the doorstep, what are you expecting to do was to defeat the mangoes because otherwise the run set the Sham as they ransacked Baghdad and destroyed everything there already. So all those things? I don't know. I don't know the full story.
But what I what we do get from that is that man had no he had the backbone to speak, speak the truth to stand for justice. How, certainly how he's, at his time, we don't know the full details alone. He knows the full story, as in many historic historical things, you know, I mean, even history Anyway, when you read about the today's and this and, and and what was happening in the royal family of Britain, and she did that, and he did this and that's why this happened. Allow Ireland who's writing the story?
Who's writing it? And did they have all the information? Who's telling them? Somebody could be lying and it's been written? Don't people live because they do. So history when it comes to these kinds of things, I always take it with a big pinch of salt. Okay.
what else do I want to mention?
I've already mentioned about his
most famous work as a much more yeah about
And he did others writings to do with Shafi effect as well.
great work of Mr. Shafi is his shot of Sunni Muslim
alameen Hajj as he called it fees shutter fee
Shahe Sahih Muslim, Emile Hajaj
shaft we use, you tend to use the word perceive for Quran and Allah tend to use the word fishery or shelf which has the same meaning but for different style. So Sahih Muslim
the most famous work for the explicit explanation or Hadith in the whole of sight Muslim is the work of commandment number
till this day,
yeah, so of great standing. Okay. on par with the most famous work of Sahil Buhari is by who?
The Hydra Ross Kalani. So these are the two works. The most famous works for the Hadith compilation, and especially is si Muslim.
is another way for Sahih Bukhari. It is in the huddle as Kalani, who did for Halle Berry? futsal. Very interestingly. Interestingly, is the work originally of a mom, no.
Mom, no, we came before in the huddle Escalante. Okay. So in our member we actually started at Halle Berry by the same name of his shell of Sahil Bahari, but he didn't complete much of it before he died.
So, even hajer out of respect from Imam nawawi
when he did it, he called it by the same name
by the same name, that Imam NaVi has actually started these sharp shots of Sahih Bukhari so fertile Berry, actually, originally, he started by mouth number one,
which he only did so.
he was doing we wrote a
was a critique of most not creaky explanation, you could say.
Yeah, of Sahih Muslim is done that. Yeah. And he did. Also he began it as Sahih al Bukhari as well, but he only did a small amount of it before he passed away. So the main one done, fertile valley as it's known as
the deep explanation
of Samuel Bahari is by
among Norway's other famous work that you may have come across because it's translated in English is really solid. I mean, anybody come across that? Yeah. Very good.
It's very good. Because he a mom, and now we decided to put topics
he goes into legal rulings as well, but a lot of it has to do with good character. Yeah. So he has he starts with chronic iron, then ahaadeeth. Okay, especially using Korean Muslim, but others as well. Yeah. To on each section, that's what you'll find. And as other scholars who are critics of the set, it is brilliant. This route to Sala hain, or the gardens for the righteous, as it's called, is brilliant. Because the other critics are they found out of all the Hadith they used in this Compendium, perhaps only 30 or 40 hours a week.
So that's the difficulty you run into it is because it still goes into legal matters. So just he just gives you relief. But you can be left with, you know, is this the right is not but generally on a clock and character. It's very good for
being truthful, not being involved in backbiting, not undermining not, you know, all this kind of thing. being sincere, being neighborly? Yeah, all this kind of thing is very good for that. So I found it useful. In nearly his 20 odd years. I used to use that chapters from it especially. And you can build on that with an explanation, etc, as well. So that's a famous work of its.
And, of course, amongst the most famous work is his alibi. And now, the 14 of you have known this for the holidays and knowing that he compiled watch at least 42. Yeah. But we'll come to discuss our body when they say arbaeen when we'll see On what basis he did it. But generally, when they say Advani, they don't necessarily mean exactly arbaeen, exactly 14
it can be used like approximately 14, he decided to put 42 in his collection by 40.
That's why it's not 14 in English translation 14 of Unknowing actually is 4200 from a middle way, but that's how it's generally used. It's used in a
loose kind of sense not to be exact in that regard. And often in language in Arabic language, that salad is like approximately 40
and when they say 70 on the say 70,000. They don't mean exactly 70 there means several,
many 10s right, and when I say 70,000 they mean many 10s of 1000s. Not to be precise, that sounds used in one way or the other by using that sense
that the famous sharp
Again, the word sharp is an explanation of those are these are 231. But if the topic
if it if you know the key color is
his was an explanation if need to take line
came shortly after him
he died in 702 he's dropped the people aid
Muhammad Ali he did
excellent explanation of the idea
of a monopoly. And it's not a it's not a detailed analysis. It's a short explanation. So if you want and actually interestingly, I just discovered it on my shelf today I didn't realize it's actually translated in English, this one in the typical aids, shell, or explanation of those 42 days of ANOVA is translated in English as well. So 40 Hadeeth of pregnant the Greek life if you look for it, you'll find it in English as well. Even in Ducky color eight he took this
name his name is Muhammad Ali, but he took this evening typically from his great grandparents, it seems grandfather seems. So he's around the same time as the Imam nawawi.
The other most famous deep explanation of the hadith of Imam nawawi is called a jameelah alone while hichem fee shabby hum seen her defend min Joe army, I mean jameela, Jamil Kelly,
and that is done by me Roger.
Roger is the great humbly scholar venuti, who came over 100 years after Imam nawawi
and his word lg awami al uloom, while hichem, the Compendium on the science and wisdom.
That's what he called it in the explanation of 50 heavy from Java mail column. Jameel column is referring to the profit size from the one from the profit size. We'll come to what your why mail column means in the next lesson, inshallah. This is the most famous. It is described by many scholars as a brilliant work a brilliant encyclopedic Compendium. He takes the 42 hadith of Imam Malawi gives deep explanation to each one of them, including a deep explanation of the even the introduction, the local demand, by demand No way. And then he adds a Qatif, which he chose himself in a regime himself to the 42 and makes 50.
so it's the 42 days of women knowing their deep explanation, plus eight more than even random ads from himself from the prophesies alone. And therefore this is known as Java mail or loom well.
Okay. Very famous work of iqnet Raja, who is humbling
wasn't Shafi. He's humbling in his mother, but of course he had
great respect and also influence of
I'll be mom knowing for mom number one.
Just to finish before I finish
this final thing.
Yeah, sorry. A mistake I mentioned earlier. I said, Ma'am, no, we called his shop which he started a Mambo hurry. I spoke to him but it wasn't a mom. No way. Mum know what we did start an explanation of a deeper explanation of sangyo mojari. They didn't call it photo diary. It was even Roger quoted that even Roger.
Although mum No, we did do start explanation of a Mambo harissa. He, he didn't complete it. We don't know I don't know where it was called. But it near Roger to humbly scholar. He certainly also did a fertile berry is and he did about a sixth of it, and then came even hydroflask Kalani who 20 years later after him and did photography, but that's just a correction in that regard.
So, when I come to doing the explanation, a deeper analysis of these Hadeeth I will be referring to in the decay glades, even reachable humbleness
Jamel aluma heckum
aside from us
what's relevant from myself in the present day context and what I've learned and critiqued critiquing what the others have said. And also in English, there's a very good word by zarabozo
it's three volumes on the 4234. Among No, yeah, he himself bases it on those works that I've mentioned. Okay.
He himself bases it on those works I've mentioned of even Roger having a difficulty and his own explanation so I'll be using that those other two books on my own input, when I'm going to be presenting inshallah The next time we will carry on and we will start looking at analyzing first from Arabic, the actual abdomen of Imam Nomi when he gave us an introduction before he put these 42 headings together, and in that lots of lessons inshallah beyond that, I think the lesson after that we will look at the idea of a for these, and I think the lesson after that we'll probably get on to the first of these are called kolyada was suffered.
Any final question before we stop for a dog? Yep.
If you if you if you just look for 14 days. Yeah, shut up. Ignorant Okay, can you find it?
