00:02:23--> 00:02:24

Ed,

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

In the name of Allah,

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

whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is Allah and whether you mistaken on whether you manifest what is in your mind or hide it, Allah will call you to account according to it. Then you will forgive him he pleases, and chastise few he pleases, and Allah has has power over all things.

00:02:49--> 00:02:58

The Prophet believes in what has been revealed to him from his Lord. And so to the believers. They all believe in Allah and His angels and his books and his prophets.

00:02:59--> 00:03:10

We make no difference between any of his apostles, and they say, we hear and obey our Lord, Your forgiveness do we pray unto you is the eventual course.

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

Allah does not impose upon any soul a duty but to the extent of its ability. What is the benefit of what it has earned and upon it the evil of what it has walked? Our Lord, do not punish us if we forget or make a mistake. Our Lord, do not lay on us a burden, as I'll just lay on those before us.

00:03:31--> 00:03:45

Our Lord, do not impose upon us that which we have not the strength to bear and pardon us and granted protection and have mercy on us. Our patron, so help us against the unbelieving people.

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

hungry lions.

00:04:02--> 00:04:25

My dear brothers and sisters, All praise is indeed you for Allah Who created us who allow us all the intellect and all the faculties that we have, who gave us our vocal cords with which to sing with and our ears with which to hear with, or blessings are due to him, made his peace and blessings be upon our beloved Prophet Muhammad's.

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:04:31--> 00:04:35

Wa Welcome to the second intensive seminar.

00:04:37--> 00:04:45

This is we're having one a month last month we dealt with the issue of homosexuality, and today we're looking at the issue of music and singing.

00:04:46--> 00:04:49

presented by Dr. Mayo.

00:04:50--> 00:04:58

I just want to do a short introduction to Dr. William. I've known him for this is the 30th our 30th anniversary together

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

I first met him in a little camp going back in 1988.

00:05:07--> 00:05:12

And I've never looked back certainly I know that scenarios very jealous of our relationship.

00:05:13--> 00:05:13

But

00:05:15--> 00:05:29

I have to say that I, I went to Newcastle University, I went to study medicine. I always prided myself in my ability to learn my skills as a student. So I had a little bit of arrogance, maybe not maybe.

00:05:31--> 00:05:40

But all that was put to bed when I met Dr. Moon, and for the last in 1996.

00:05:42--> 00:06:02

k introduced me to chef Abdullah Judah, who was at that time still he was heavily involved with the youth Grand Mosque. He has allowed today is world leading Mahajan, Hadith scholar. And we started the two of us to go on a weekly basis to study

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

Firstly, the science of jurisprudence in Islam.

00:06:07--> 00:06:10

And we've been there since then, only this week.

00:06:12--> 00:06:20

And it's now we celebrate the 21 years of going there. And I have to say, I'm really a spectator there.

00:06:21--> 00:06:32

I gave little bits here and there the humble luminaires student student, his ability as a student, or humble love very, very, very strong, very good.

00:06:33--> 00:07:02

So he's mastered his his his speciality is his self discipline. And I probably hate to be saying all this. But he himself has taught himself probably I would say, a third to half the Quran by heart has learned Arabic by himself. So that when we sit there, I'm there with my scribbling away in English, he's scribbling away in Arabic, and all self taught. And every session we go to, he'll have read the movie and input

00:07:03--> 00:07:13

all the different modality positions on the particular subject we're looking at. So I can be absolutely assured that today you're going to get a full

00:07:15--> 00:07:26

in depth analysis of this subject, I can see a hand on my heart, having been involved with the Islamic scenes or police having seen in the last 30 years

00:07:27--> 00:07:32

that you will not get a better rendition of this subject anywhere in the UK neither has

00:07:34--> 00:08:09

so you get either tofu analysis of the different issues. And the benefit here is most fuqaha they be able to give you a position on a particular matter. But what they can't do, generally speaking, is tell you the analysis of the Heidi's involved and they're we're blessed to have the the our sessions which you have to learn today where you can tell us the different strengths of the headings. So with that, I shall now move to the back over there with my guitar eventually handed over to me.

00:08:27--> 00:08:28

You know, humble in LA

00:08:34--> 00:08:37

What I should have seen in our molano hobby then a what was what was what

00:08:59--> 00:09:03

was it? Who didn't come about

00:09:08--> 00:09:11

why you come here to the slums salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.

00:09:13--> 00:09:47

Praise we call law. He alone is worthy of all praise. As we praise Him, we seek His forgiveness, guidance and his mercy will seek refuge in Allah from the evil of our bad deeds, and we seek refuge from the evil and bad insiders. Know that one was guided by a lot, they are truly guided when we'd love to go astray will not find a guide or a protector or a helper after that. And then we'll start there is no God, but the one true God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them. And I bear witness that Muhammad peace and prayers have allowed me upon it is a sliver messenger.

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

00:10:47--> 00:10:53

Lu is raha de de la Spada says?

00:10:55--> 00:10:59

know that all of you that the life of this world

00:11:01--> 00:11:03

is play and amusement

00:11:05--> 00:11:06

and beautification

00:11:08--> 00:11:12

and boasting in competing with one another,

00:11:13--> 00:11:27

what the alpha and beta what a gasoline fill and while you will learn and in computing in lots of wealth and children and families, it is like similitude or when Allah sends the rain

00:11:29--> 00:11:30

and how

00:11:31--> 00:11:37

summer Yeah, he Joe, Danny becomes dry. So Matt

00:11:47--> 00:11:54

caramba was follow then you see it go yellow, from my opponent Obama, then you see it become stubble?

00:11:56--> 00:12:05

Well, Phil after nothing. So this is the life of the Tony and a similar cube. As the last month I mentioned the beauty and age and all his play and amusement.

00:12:07--> 00:12:09

Our last one, just saying what will happen to it.

00:12:10--> 00:12:14

So don't attach yourself with it. And the reality is, I'm not jumped straight away. Well, I feel

00:12:16--> 00:12:25

as I was said, even when my fear told me that I had one, whereas in the Hereafter, in other words, the way I was taught that brings it in the eye is that is imminent.

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

But it is imminent.

00:12:29--> 00:12:44

And in the Hereafter, just two choices. malabu shebeen severe punishment, all what matters to me now why would I want forgiveness from Allah and the pleasure, that is His pleasure and your pleasure and his forgiveness? And in this

00:12:47--> 00:12:57

woman hyah teutonia in lava town guru and surely there the life of this world is only enjoyment, enjoyment amusement of deception.

00:13:00--> 00:13:07

This idea can sometimes give the appearance as though a lot smarter, shunning everything to do with dunya

00:13:08--> 00:13:13

if that was the case, then this green would come with teaching us to become monks and lead.

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

It mentions in this ayah as it mentions a muse but it mentions thing that

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

that we all like

00:13:24--> 00:13:26

our beautification is beautification

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

and wealth and children

00:13:30--> 00:13:32

wealth and children

00:13:33--> 00:13:49

but he mentions in a way so we don't become totally attacked what is giving is a sad to be accurate, and reminding us that this is temporary, that this is temporary, a bit like also the AI Allah says Lena Lin NASA who push awaji

00:13:50--> 00:14:01

Minami sir well but no one can argue that will come talimena w one that but a lot of others saying we have made it beautiful in the eyes

00:14:03--> 00:14:31

of human beings what love for design here it says shall lead a minute he said desire from women This means sexual desire acts we shower, so implies the other way around as well. Or women their sexual desire for many Allah saying he's put that as a natural thing in human beings. Yeah, um, to have to love to have children and to have mountains full of gold and for silver.

00:14:32--> 00:14:58

Well fit that well higher masama and Tom steeds and horses which which are branding and travel, while hearth and draft crops and vegetation. Valley come apart with high active dunia Valley committable, higher Mocambo hair. This is the enjoyment of the life of this world. One level in the whole host no host nomads was no mob

00:15:00--> 00:15:33

While mob and with Allah is the most beautiful abode, this is for this world. But these are things that Allah has put there for human beings. So Allah is saying that Allah conduct beautification and the love for these things that to me are in the human beings by their very nature, robot reminding us not to get attached to them, that the reality is you're coming back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's where the refile abort is. So don't get attached to this to these things, or though you're going to be there permanently.

00:15:36--> 00:15:47

So, to avoid getting this the attitude of shunning the world and leaving it and becoming monks and we know that this monk ism is not from Islam come up all of a sudden loss of license.

00:15:48--> 00:15:55

So let's write those says cool. Man hug Rama Zenith a lability of a body he

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

What can you Bertie without risk?

00:16:00--> 00:16:06

What can you not even a risk? Say who was forbidden the beautification of Allah,

00:16:08--> 00:16:12

which he has brought forth after the remedy for his slaves.

00:16:13--> 00:16:31

And I've Goodness What are you backing me off goodness in sustenance and risk in food and sustenance wider than that? We'll hear a little leaner and we'll fill hierarchy dounia Holly satin yoga piano, say they these things

00:16:33--> 00:16:40

are for the believers in the life of this world. Yeah, that's fine doesn't say they are for human beings in the life of this world.

00:16:41--> 00:16:58

And actually, they are on all these things. The goods, the beautification, and good sustenance therefore all human beings, but hey, Allison, I stressing why he alladhina amanu said they are for the believers.

00:17:00--> 00:17:42

feel happy. So the believers don't get a concept and idea that they're not for us. We have to shun them. So unless stressing for the believers they are for you will hear the other thing I don't feel high up in dunya, but hardly certain Yokoyama but only for believers on the Day of Resurrection. The desire again, is saying who's make these things to be? Well, that's one that gives them the bounty and the good things and the things that we like to enjoy, that are all about niche and bounty that Allah has given us except that which is limited. And he clarifies what is forbidden Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran clearly, and through Rasulullah sallallahu it was similar.

00:17:44--> 00:17:48

So there is bankruptcy No, no hi atonia will ask you not to hate on

00:17:49--> 00:18:34

me you prefer the life of this world whereas a life to come the after that after is better and everlasting. This ESR is being developed in the believers, to make them give priority for the judgment that's about to come, the testaments about to come. So in order to balance it, we have to balance with all the chronic is to give the balance in our understanding that yes, Allah God has given us of his gift and he's bounties and therefore you have not just a hotline you are messengers like Tao the soleimani I Lima Salaam were kings in this world wandering up. And no I think no human ever existed who are richer than Salima alayhis salaam is that also

00:18:36--> 00:18:40

owning so much of riches and power,

00:18:41--> 00:19:15

messengers of Allah. So included in that beautification and policies were when the Queen as she was walking as though she walking on water on glass in the palaces, that's the kind of luxury and, and beauty, that blessing of the policies of solar modulating solar. And those things are not being met negatively, they're mentioned positively, but for the believer is the attitude to the gift of bounty of Allah subhanaw taala. And the attitude is being mentioned here. And I mentioned that as part of an introduction. I'll finish with the Hadees which is reported

00:19:16--> 00:19:20

in Saudi Muslim, and it is a famous hadith of pongola.

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

I

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

will say you

00:19:26--> 00:19:32

see the or he's known as handler, if narrabeen attain me as well.

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

A companion a superfan who was one of the

00:19:38--> 00:19:43

one of the secretaries one of the scribes of the soul muscle muscle. He says

00:19:45--> 00:19:52

lucky to the other worker, Rebecca met me one day and I'm wondering for the saying that he found me craving upset.

00:19:54--> 00:19:55

Love your lover.

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

Please answer Yeah. hungama

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

How are you? Hello Hello What's the matter?

00:20:05--> 00:20:11

He said I said, Nah humble, unloved common Africa. I'm a hypocrite.

00:20:16--> 00:20:22

So hon Allah Glory be to Allah. What can you say? What do you say?

00:20:23--> 00:20:33

He said, Nicola, la sala Nando Genova na, can you aim? phasa min.

00:20:35--> 00:20:40

Personnel as well as well Allah what the Messina coffee Iran?

00:20:43--> 00:20:52

He said, Why do you think why am I saying I'm a hypocrite? He said, Well, when would the Messenger of Allah Yeah, he reminds us of Paradise and hell.

00:20:54--> 00:20:58

And the reminder is so strong, he says, No, we see it.

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

We see it clearly. Then we leave. And we come back amongst our families and our children. And we get busy and we forget so much. So we're not in the same state as we were, then you're going to busy with life and dunya and earning and looking after and part of that in family's enjoyment.

00:21:21--> 00:21:37

So like I said, that's my situation as well actually. That's my situation. So let's go and see the Messenger of Allah. He'll say bye for now firefighters. So they come to assume the loss of a loved one. And the same thing is repeated.

00:21:38--> 00:21:56

Unless saying that now I'm like a hypocrite. So what do you explain to the Messenger of Allah? What did the prophet SAW Some say? He said, Well, let me know CBOT love to go Moana, alhama de como una in de la physical

00:21:59--> 00:22:01

is saying but by him.

00:22:03--> 00:22:12

In whose hands is my soul, by Allah. If you were to continue in the state that you were in when you are with me, with the remainder that I'm giving,

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

you said, Surely the angels will come and shake your hands in your bedrooms and in your sitting rooms and on your roads and streets.

00:22:23--> 00:22:40

In other words, when the angels arrive to shake your hands and you see them coming, it's impossible. The angel arrives, it's already there. in a different world. Why focus on saying that it's not going to happen? In other words, you can't be in that step all the time. It's impossible.

00:22:41--> 00:22:48

That's why then the problem is asking them something famous. Yeah, hello, sa wassa

00:22:49--> 00:23:03

wassa. So I was saw as if too stressful, he said three times, or Hello, there's a time for this. And a time for that a time for this a time filler, a time for this and a time for lack.

00:23:05--> 00:23:09

So this is a beautiful piece about bringing the balance of this dream.

00:23:10--> 00:23:12

Big I mentioned that because

00:23:13--> 00:23:29

on the one hand, there are those who are busy with just leisure and pleasure on ha ha hee hee and ugly from the world. That is very dangerous for us no doubt. Right. And especially with the title that we're looking at, we could have been talking about music and singing in regards to Islam.

00:23:30--> 00:23:39

But on the other hand, there are those who will lead us to believe and that's the other side I see as extreme is that believers, when the shunga

00:23:40--> 00:23:47

those who service the believers should be busy only filling that time with reading Quran and Hadees all day long.

00:23:50--> 00:23:55

As though our hearts and minds mustn't have any room for anything else on the Quran and Hadith.

00:23:56--> 00:24:36

That is contrary to what this is saying. That is contrary to how rasulillah salam how the Sahaba lived their lives, is it no more than the sisters, you just have to read a little bit of Syrah a little bit of life of the soul Islam a look at a monkey adiz and you'll see that kind of idea concept is alien to Islam. Islam. This is Dean, Dean of hanifa somehow come upon us a little less on the law of the sun and I'll tell you what context he said it he later on, which is very pertinent. He said, I've been sent with the dean honey Thea upright somehow you know what it means liberal.

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

So many people saying Oh, liberal view, liberal, this liberal, nice. Anybody who says there's a bit of relaxation or liberal, because Islam is to be and this is part of this following of Christians and Jews of falling them into the, the hole of the desert lizard, or making religion so tight and narrow, that everybody becomes so religious.

00:25:00--> 00:25:23

You know, as well, we need to be like robots looking around and looking the same or dressing the same or speaking with the same. You know, I remember in that one there was some young people we had in the 80s. And when we used to talk about Dawa and how to find common ground with people, there were some young people who are so narrow minded, and we give it to them. They were young,

00:25:24--> 00:25:30

like the knowledge to speak to people about anything in dharma. The best thing is just read the Quran, Calum? What is better than the Quran?

00:25:31--> 00:25:35

So, given the impression that all you can go around doing is speaking with

00:25:37--> 00:25:58

who did that from the profits and an MBA and the Sahaba Yeah, this narrow minded idea. So on the other extreme, this idea that we It is impossible. It is impossible therefore asuma saw some pull back Sahaba who had a tendency to go extreme, even anybody that did not sell on one volume solo.

00:26:00--> 00:26:04

In an insane, in Allahu Allah.

00:26:06--> 00:26:11

Allah will not grow weary of your environment, but you will grow weary.

00:26:12--> 00:26:28

And that weariness is to do with becoming also because shaitan plays on your willingness, the willingness of Dan 90 Bala Dan 90 by the den 90 Baba, he goes away for wanting to fast all the time to stop them, those work to stay awake all night to stop them.

00:26:30--> 00:26:41

To get right to the husband or wife, which means in the relationship on the marital religion. That's exactly what he's talking, he's talking about some of the lower insulin he's doing enjoy me, I'm Tanya.

00:26:44--> 00:26:55

So this balance is so important to understand at the outset with the ethos to the hereafter always given preference to the hereafter always.

00:27:03--> 00:27:11

And that's why the focus is always and I've given examples as well. Game warning about during the shutdown,

00:27:12--> 00:27:14

going to extremes in the religion

00:27:15--> 00:27:21

in India has been the use, while I'm sure Edina Illa Allah

00:27:22--> 00:27:24

was Sunday the audio

00:27:25--> 00:27:27

this thing is easy.

00:27:28--> 00:27:44

And how the boss I'm calling it Dean and I love how's it been because it's a way of life is not just a few rigify calls away. And this deal has been made easy. And there isn't a person who goes strictly into this deal that he overtakes them. In other words, it destroys them.

00:27:45--> 00:27:48

It destroys them. strictness destroys them.

00:27:51--> 00:28:07

Why suddenly do cardio so let's take step by step. coming closer, little by little, but tamela master data as of last night, God says in the Quran, so be conscious of Allah as much as you're able to little by little step by step.

00:28:09--> 00:28:35

And that is also freaking with the nature of human beings in sand. Those who fall to those who fall those who sin, those who keep on sinning. Yeah, that's why the famous study from the prophet SAW some but Allah says that all human beings would like to become settlers alone will destroy them as you mean so those going around claiming sinless you know, living this you know, living this bubble idea

00:28:37--> 00:28:50

I love with destroyed destroy them and replace them with those who sin and do all that to him, glory be to Him. That attitude will produce it as a humility. It will produce it as

00:28:51--> 00:28:57

an idea of real understanding of this Dean and he's balanced and his use of a nice ease actually.

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

Now

00:29:01--> 00:29:04

that's way of introduction because

00:29:06--> 00:29:07

even though

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

slide

00:29:36--> 00:29:37

Oh, well.

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

Now, to begin with, we need some definitions to understand when we go to analyze.

00:30:10--> 00:30:10

And

00:30:12--> 00:30:14

these are the kind of words that will come up.

00:30:18--> 00:30:19

Firstly,

00:30:21--> 00:30:26

singing, which is a Hina Hina in Arabic.

00:30:29--> 00:30:39

And that must be understood that arena means singing with using a voice in that melodious way.

00:30:41--> 00:30:59

Therefore, means melody by itself. Your singing cannot be when you shout, or just speak like normal, it wouldn't be called singing. And I mentioned that because there are on a map, and you know, when I've gone through a reset is so

00:31:02--> 00:31:03

astonishing

00:31:04--> 00:31:11

how some of them saw singing as being allowed for some, because they had no melody.

00:31:12--> 00:31:20

And they put conditions on people's singing as long as they were not melodious. Well, that's a very, I guess, the very definition of singing

00:31:21--> 00:31:50

songs you're allowed to sing as long as you don't have a melody. Okay, nonsense is that a contradiction in terms. So I see people putting conditions. Yeah, and that's why I mentioned in the very definition of the word singing, and all of my like, I mohalla, bizarrely, and in the husband and others, they use the idea of singing the tune coming applied to for example, blitzing. Because they had their singing has notes and melody.

00:31:51--> 00:32:08

And people who are skilled musicians who are able to take the notes assemble a bird which we call a song, and making to tune for human beings to sing by that kind of tune. So singing by its very definition, essence means using a melody

00:32:11--> 00:32:12

the

00:32:20--> 00:32:48

and you find singing, as we'll see, the evidence is there are all kinds of singing already present at the time of school. And before in January, of course, as well, actually, you'll find probably world over, but specific kinds of claps we'll see in the various article one which was also and most many of the time, etc, poetry being put into work. In fact, that's the case with songs even up till this day.

00:32:49--> 00:32:59

Poetry be sung. Poetry can be set, but it can be sown as well. So when it is sung, it changes from quite free to winner to singing.

00:33:02--> 00:33:07

Music of course, the word mind will seek out is a modern term wasn't used at the time of

00:33:09--> 00:33:34

what is used at that time is a word word called malarkey, or my alma Asif Malachi Malani, which means musical instruments comes from the word level. And that word is very important to understand and we'll come up to it come to deal with it later. Remember this word level level, this game means

00:33:36--> 00:33:44

pastime, it can include amusement, relaxation, just means pastime, it can mean wasting time as well.

00:33:46--> 00:34:12

But it doesn't always mean wasting time. So level is immune from that they took the word malaki, musical instruments meaning for amusement, malarkey, and mozzie comes from the word as if, as if is used directly in the meaning of as for real, for example, the sound of the wind.

00:34:13--> 00:34:23

Maybe when it's going through a narrow corridor, you see that we hear the wind, but they use this specially for the the voices of gyms, because it was captivating.

00:34:24--> 00:34:59

So massive comes from that magic of musical instruments and include all musical instruments, by the way, lm Rs, it includes all musical instruments, and that's important to remember you cannot start taking some instruments out of it and say, yeah, if you're going to say all musical instruments around then you can't take some out and say well, because their mas if, because some use the argument, they said, Well, we don't agree with wind instruments like the mismarked or the guitar.

00:35:00--> 00:35:20

Or the string instrument because the two melodious the drum the Gulf, that's all right, because it has no melody, nonsense. The depth is massive because he has melody. If somebody just goes bang, bang, bang, bang, bang like that, you're not gonna say, well, that's he's playing the drum. He doesn't play the drum. True.

00:35:21--> 00:35:37

So playing that Duff, Duff, which is, which was very commonly known because he's easily available. But it wasn't the only instrument I will see at the time of a solo loss. Awesome. But he's common because it's easy to make.

00:35:38--> 00:35:51

easily available, and therefore that's what's going to be used. Yeah, if it's going to be used. So tough is that which is has has one side and plays like a drum, then you have something called

00:35:56--> 00:36:04

knowing that a killer or double as he came to Nolan, which was a two sided drum,

00:36:05--> 00:36:32

bit like recording Tolkien in the in the Asian continent. So that kind of drum of two sides, as you see also exists in a camera. So last last, Miss mon misma is flute or Masami that is the wind instruments. So Miss model is flukes book is a book is a more modern thing and the trumpet and Ord

00:36:33--> 00:36:34

or loot

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

is a stringed instrument.

00:36:38--> 00:36:52

And trombone as well, which is a mandolin kind of string instruments. And a lot is important because it's interesting but that will also come up in one of the happy faces that come now

00:36:55--> 00:36:59

goes or something in regards to definitions.

00:37:10--> 00:37:11

That's an old

00:37:14--> 00:37:16

board which is the mandolin

00:37:18--> 00:37:23

Baba which can also be not magnifying one side, it can have two sides, which was the

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

misma.

00:37:33--> 00:37:38

A few things that we need to understand before we go into some analysis.

00:37:39--> 00:37:40

We're already

00:37:41--> 00:37:43

running out of time fast.

00:37:44--> 00:37:45

First,

00:37:47--> 00:37:48

when we consider any issue,

00:37:50--> 00:37:51

the first principle

00:37:52--> 00:37:53

is that

00:37:54--> 00:38:05

is look Phil Usha, this is in jurisprudence, Allah say that the principle is that everything in the world is allowed,

00:38:07--> 00:38:18

is allowed by its very, very fact that Allah made it chosen exists, because Allah says whether the Kala callicoon pill out of deja vu.

00:38:19--> 00:38:48

It is he who created for you everything in the years for you. What's up perilaku marfil of the journey and minimal, he has subdued everything that is in the earth for you all of it, all of it. So everything is automated for us. So by the very foundation, the first principle is everything is allowed. Meaning unless we have text, lucky to make it harder.

00:38:49--> 00:39:03

That's how revelation came. Revelation didn't come with lists of things you're allowed to do today, we're on comes with thing which are haram for eating and drinking, for example, it didn't then give a long list of all the things which I think

00:39:04--> 00:39:33

it gives you What's wrong, which means everything else is hollow. So I'll ask a Shia liba second thing, when you look at the issue of music, or any issue and in this case, music and singing, you have to decide is this an issue to do with ritual worship or to do with people's are that everyday living a life quite clearly this issue is not to do with ritual worship is it

00:39:35--> 00:39:58

this is to do with culture and everyday life of people. So on another device that as well in how they look at it, because the rule in our soul in jurisprudence for a bar that is different from that which is an ad that he bought that in a suit we derived from the ground and some that that is fulfill a banner that a comic book

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

okay

00:40:00--> 00:40:15

The principle in regards to eBay that is, is to uphold means worship that which we only worship according to Revelation that come we don't establish eBay that from ourselves

00:40:16--> 00:40:33

so ibadat is not something like the rest of life that's coming up from jack Leah and he saw him accepted it and adjusted it no he bad that only comes from walking from Allah subhanaw taala you are only allowed to do a bad on praying this way you can't make it up as you go along.

00:40:35--> 00:40:44

You can't use a principal is allowed unless onyxia around here know nothing about that so you buy that only according to Revelation

00:40:46--> 00:41:00

that as a different ruling I'll ask fulfill that and he'll just like before the principal in our that in everyday living the principle is Hello. Unless something comes to me

00:41:02--> 00:41:04

that's important to understand.

00:41:08--> 00:41:08

And

00:41:10--> 00:41:12

when you see that in regards to

00:41:15--> 00:41:48

Hello, we already know from the Quran Allah smartlight giving this is good Matt hungama Xena hola hola t up again Abba. If you What are you back up no risk, say who is familiar and the beautiful things that Allah brought forward for his servants and from from that all that which is good in the way of sustenance? And in amongst those things are things that we like for example, when the prophet SAW someone said inauthentic or de la yaku Jenga man cannot feed me he miss Kala rug rotting mineral Kiba

00:41:49--> 00:41:51

on it you're gonna love

00:41:57--> 00:42:07

when the wrongs are some mentions, that the one who a person who has given an atom's degree of arrogance in their heart will not enter parents.

00:42:08--> 00:42:16

So, Mansa jasola What about a one who likes to wear nice clothes or nice shoes?

00:42:17--> 00:42:22

Is there any keyboard in that? Is there any keep it in that so the proper size of them said

00:42:24--> 00:42:27

in the larger meal you handle Gemma

00:42:30--> 00:42:36

Babu Huck wantonness explain our kidneys.

00:42:38--> 00:43:10

So, the man when the man said that once I said no Allah surely Allah is beautiful. I love this beauty. So in other words, you enjoying your nice clothes, which Allah has given you as a bounty, and your nice shoes is not part of kibble, unless a kippah is battle Huck is to reject the truth. reject the truth, but will ha meaning you reject the truth because you think lowly of somebody, even though they're telling the truth and speaking down, which is right, but you reject it, because everything.

00:43:12--> 00:43:38

I'm not listening to that, too good. And humbleness. Is he looking down on people? That is what Clyburn is. So if you're not wearing nice clothes, yeah. And if you're not wearing nice clothes, nice shoes, you know, to look down upon people, you have no people in you, if you're wearing them for that purpose, that the kicker is not because of the clothes and the shoes, that disease is in the heart.

00:43:40--> 00:43:41

You follow me?

00:43:45--> 00:43:47

Now, the other thing

00:43:48--> 00:43:49

once

00:43:51--> 00:43:53

our source of course

00:43:54--> 00:44:05

is to find out whether something which is allowed and being made Haram is the parameters. If we find nothing in the Quran, we don't say we're finished with it.

00:44:06--> 00:44:19

Then see in our hobbies, of course, the issue is not just the fact that he studies but the first thing we have to check is that authentic belief that is in the in the field of specialism

00:44:21--> 00:44:59

just because you find it in the sales sector, which itself is a misnomer, by the way, because people think the six authentic books means all of them contain authentic belief. This is a misnomer. This is not true. It is a it is a title that was given by others hundreds of years later, in fact that compilers like Abu download of his Solon and Timothy of his own Jamia is Compendium, and they never claimed that we only bought authentic and even this only worry, Muslim claim that we've chosen the best and more authentic for their psyche, hey. So to put them all on that disclaimer, and of course, that book

00:45:00--> 00:45:36

So these are beyond that. You find our hobbies and our senior photography, you find them in Miami shaver more significant than Verizon. What type them I'm that my buddy in Muslim and Muslim Ahmedabad in Hamburg. So this nevertheless their collections. And he was establishing that which is the first step before you start deliberating over the reasons, see what it means, isn't it? You could end up deliberating over a leaf and then you find afterwards this has to be fabricated. So you're wasting your time. In other words, this lesson didn't say it. And in regards to

00:45:37--> 00:46:01

what on of course, absolutely. That's not the issue. The issue is the understanding of words. because much of that going on in GM and rulings comes and gives room for tat, we'll they call it a tough scene. So all I know, for perhaps right from the time of the Sahaba, to this day, saw a different angle to the same word in the same verse, and drew different conclusions.

00:46:03--> 00:46:10

And their conclusions are not absolute for us. The only person's conclusion as absolute for us is who's

00:46:11--> 00:46:13

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:46:15--> 00:46:35

that's like not money famously sent him before in a blender basketball developer and also said the same thing. I standing in the mosque in Medina, near the grave of rasulillah. Salam Malik famously said, we check and we leave from the opinions of everyone, anyone except the occupier of this grave. Some of

00:46:38--> 00:46:53

you understand that's very important principle. This is the room for each to have a nice day, how is the head isn't the final say? Because the human beings? Yeah, the human man man for so many different opinions.

00:46:55--> 00:47:21

And therefore, no scholar is free from making mistake. Never has been from even sahabas time to this day. But no Sahaba is no No, no scholar is also who is qualified properly to be thrown on the rubbish dumping everything that they say, because you don't like a particular opinion of them. That is unjust.

00:47:22--> 00:47:24

That is unjust.

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

Following on from the principle that I've said,

00:47:29--> 00:47:29

Now,

00:47:31--> 00:47:32

the other thing

00:47:33--> 00:47:36

is that so you corroborate Hanif.

00:47:37--> 00:47:41

And therefore, to read to understand this, why are these weak?

00:47:42--> 00:47:55

And we have these is just a term, but I'll tell you, there are so many categories under it. And many of the latter day scholars don't delve into this. They just say relief. And they say oh, well, it's not too bad.

00:47:57--> 00:48:21

Well, it can be fabricated and they can still use a title we can leave completely fabricated. It could have five or six mistakes and problems with it still says we could die you could mean he had one problem with it, but the fact of principle that we need to understand they are these all allow any credibility are clear cannot be the basis of a Hong Kong and a ruling on its own.

00:48:23--> 00:48:29

No way because it's conjecture, because when we can if we cannot say for sure.

00:48:30--> 00:48:32

So set this very important principle.

00:48:34--> 00:48:37

Okay, some said

00:48:39--> 00:48:40

some said

00:48:42--> 00:48:45

other than the humble and he was an expert,

00:48:46--> 00:48:58

not only for me, but more than the sum. So he just doesn't know how to effectively and literally, and they rejected him especially in the modeling. They didn't see you as a scholar. But he was a scholar as well as Mohammed and he and

00:48:59--> 00:49:12

some said he took we can eat but if you look at Amazon in the humble taking week of Eve, then the level of his weakened these were later on described by Timothy as has some hobbies. Good, and if

00:49:14--> 00:49:39

so some took liberality. By that opinion, he took week a bead and thought we can take weeklies as well, your week that you're taking is not the same as a week of uploadable hambone. There's no comparison. It is incorrect, that interpretation to come to that conclusion. Second, admittedly humble didn't take we continue to make a new ruling from it. It took it in his hand when he found nothing else.

00:49:41--> 00:49:47

But not to build a new rule on it. This is not the way of jurisprudence because it is seen as conjecture

00:49:51--> 00:49:53

and as much more I can say now,

00:49:55--> 00:49:55

much of my

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

work and analysis is being based on

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

The research of our teacher shehab the use of technology.

00:50:07--> 00:50:13

And this is an amazing amazing work, amazing research. I'm afraid it's only in Arabic.

00:50:15--> 00:50:47

But it says it's a scholarly research is for scholars, his books are for scholars whose research is done for other scholars to learn from. And together with also studying other things like nominees and Nipa damas McGee, his and how he dealt with the issue and the various opinions and his opinion according and also how you present the opinion of others, including, of course, ama, Linda, humble, nice, humbling, but he views he often comes after the opinion of the hanabi lambda with his own opinions as well. And also

00:50:48--> 00:50:53

looking at famously, a paper done by the

00:50:54--> 00:50:57

famous scholars show Connie, Yemeni scholar

00:50:59--> 00:51:02

from over 200 years ago,

00:51:03--> 00:51:09

and he wrote a book about 66 pages in Arabic on

00:51:10--> 00:51:26

Baku Tao eg map, Allah, he wrote a paper saying, destroying the claim of Iijima on the forbidding of listening to music and singing. It's a brilliant paper,

00:51:28--> 00:51:29

a brilliant analysis.

00:51:30--> 00:51:35

So that was part of it. And I also looked at this book, which I want to mention.

00:51:37--> 00:51:39

Slippery stone by five bang.

00:51:41--> 00:51:45

This is the most comprehensive book in English on this issue.

00:51:48--> 00:51:53

But I have major problems with this analysis, major problems.

00:51:55--> 00:52:07

I think if I'm saying I need to write a rebuttal to it, there's some good stuff in it, no doubt. But some of the argument now one of the arguments he talks about weaker here is just astonishing.

00:52:08--> 00:52:27

Because here is a scholar. And he's mentioning of course he's trying to mention in his evidence is authentic abuse as we're going to mention. Then he goes to the issue of weakness. And he says, well, when you have weakened these and you have lots of them, you can put them together and one can corroborate the other you can get sound

00:52:29--> 00:52:40

nonsense nonsense. It depends on the level of weakness first as I said earlier on, you can't just use a willy nilly claim like that I'm putting on the shoulder of

00:52:42--> 00:52:44

course I'm great regard for

00:52:45--> 00:53:31

and was a great scholar the student even taymiyah but I disagree with him on this issue. So he says holiday that lots of people saying the same thing must have some credibility. I mean, that kind of comment destroys the whole little hobbies been built up because if that's the case, there's no point having a science called little honey because you just go by lots of people are saying it will accept it. So it gives the example unbelievably in there. He says For example, if we have nowadays some a road traffic accident takes place somewhere and you hear about an independent from a few people. It doesn't he says he argues it doesn't really matter whether they're trustworthy, whether they can be

00:53:31--> 00:53:37

relied on because lots of them saying it is very likely that this road accident took place.

00:53:40--> 00:54:15

Again, this is destroying the whole of aluminum but you may as well not bother with this authentic and even begin to argue that Now listen, this is a road accident. He's talking about in present day, then compare road accident report. Does it have much bearing on our life? Not really. Unless it's our own family that symbol? Yeah. then compare that to the same code for an obese soul a lot while he was on them who said Mankato, Alejandra ammidon failure Beauvoir ooh minute na women lives from me.

00:54:16--> 00:54:57

My life from me with on purpose will find their seat in the fire. And this has been one of the strongest hobbies. I had as many reports from many Sahaba it is not awatea absolute. Everybody believes this is fun. And various versions of it came warning people of saying things from the Prophet sighs limb from his own and he's failed which are not true and corroborated that they will go to the Hellfire fighters even further. So you have that on one side and you compare that to an accident taking place just on a roll. Let's take that further accident on the road. Now this axiom isn't in today's world. There's no photos. There's no news reels. Nobody knows about it. You only

00:54:57--> 00:54:59

find out for word of mouth actually

00:55:00--> 00:55:28

two centuries have gone by now you're hearing about this accident from 200 years ago. So you're going to still make this claim. It doesn't matter really if people are corroborated as reliable or truthful or not. We heard from the Met from about this accident taking place 200 years ago, when you take place cannot be relied upon. How did it take place? Who was involved? What do we call this in English? Chinese whispers

00:55:30--> 00:55:34

that's his argument for accepting weaker this unbelievable.

00:55:36--> 00:55:57

He destroyed and contradicted the whole paluma hobby, no, by having experts if that's what you're gonna make out to be okay. There are many fabricated hotties he says. Because so many people are saying where there's so many actually hundreds of people in the chain. It's all alive. Even though this one is what people say.

00:55:58--> 00:56:11

And the experts in addition made it very clear it's very easy for them to do that with their expertise. So with this method is going to use you're gonna use that now Fannie Mae's long not discuss any further because you can bring anything in.

00:56:12--> 00:56:23

So I'm noticing that this is not the way of the siouxland jury schools, it is totally unacceptable. Otherwise, don't talk about authentic abuse at all.

00:56:24--> 00:56:28

And great warning taken Now to finish with us we

00:56:29--> 00:56:32

will not have time I'm finished with because I've been told

00:56:33--> 00:56:37

when we try to understand the Quranic verses, and ahaadeeth.

00:56:39--> 00:56:50

The best what is very important is that the best explanation for grandma these are other verses of the Quran or the Hadith. Before you start interpreting what you think

00:56:51--> 00:57:02

chronic versus cost cross reference will give you an idea of what the words mean in that particular word and a hug is brought together will give you that and when you're talking about particular issue,

00:57:04--> 00:57:18

do not take a single hubby's on its own. Sometimes on the same hobbies, you have many other versions of it with addition of words. And if they're all authentic, they all add to the understanding of that particular hobby.

00:57:20--> 00:57:34

They sing a little hobbies, they added to FIFA, boom, the extra that comes from a trustworthy narrator, from a different report with a few different words is acceptable, because it gives a better picture of what you're trying to understand.

00:57:35--> 00:57:43

But many people don't do that you just take a singular event, just come to conclusions you can never get this is not your inspiration. This is nonsense.

00:57:44--> 00:57:54

So you need to collect all their hobbies. And after you sift through the week, and the fabricated, the authentic ones on that topic will help you understand what the others mean.

00:57:56--> 00:58:06

That's how to understand the army and understand their hobbies. Very important. sahabas finally sahabas opinion

00:58:08--> 00:58:21

sahabas opinion sahabas opinion on trans on the explanation of a word can be taken as culture as an argument. But Sahaba differ also on the opinion on words as well.

00:58:22--> 00:58:39

And I've landed the suit says something about a particular word in it. You said Oh, how can we how can the husband do that? Massoud is saying this?

00:59:03--> 00:59:32

Well, first, you have to contextualize whatever Massoud is saying as well and read into what he's saying. It's not just simple, just artificial from the surface. So even though Dr. Adnan bassoon says that but others have a concern the same and therefore more fostering you see often tamari in nikka feed Baba, we all done when they mentioned sometimes Sahaba and carbines opinion on a particular area. They'll put their own opinion and say I think this is better
