00:01:02 --> 00:01:44

Praise be to Allah Lord of the Worlds Peace and blessings on his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam after saying salaam Brothers Sisters, we ask Allah to accept from us our efforts to make our intentions good and pure for his pleasure. And we plead and ask our love for beneficial knowledge and understanding and wide sustenance on him we utterly depend and to him because our return goal we're still contemplating Hadith number nine which we recommence the last session last week. So let me remind you a hadith number nine in

00:01:45 --> 00:01:47

a note with our buying

00:01:48 --> 00:02:20

where he mentioned and Abby Radiata. Abdur Rahman suffered the Allahu Anhu called semi auto Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam your goal, man I hate to come and who fetch attorney boo warmer to come be fair to men who Mr. DA tune in number adelakun Lavina men will probably come guess what to Messiah ailing him walk dealer for whom Allah Ambia him and the meaning just to remind remind us again what we're contemplating on

00:02:21 --> 00:02:39

an imported from Abu Hooray not that he heard the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say what I forbidden you from avoid it stay away from it. What I've ordered you to do do us do of it as much as you can. It was only the excessive questioning and there disagreeing with the prophet the Prophet.

00:02:40 --> 00:03:04

It's that destroyed those who are before you reporting Buhari Muslim. The original Hadith as I mentioned is in Bukhari Muslim This is a part portion of the Hadith taken cream I remind you of the Hadith in Sahih Muslim and if you remember it was linked to a hot pot the prophesy son was delivering when the ayat of the Quran were revealed to make the hajj

00:03:06 --> 00:03:07

what is

00:03:08 --> 00:03:11

it? Exactly call it Alpharetta.

00:03:13 --> 00:03:16

Katakana rasool Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam

00:03:18 --> 00:03:51

are called Are you and ask and find out Allahu alaykum will hedge fund would do for color Nigel Akula Amiata Sula for Secretary Takala has a lesson for colonists who is on the lower they Salam local to Nam la Bucha but will Mr. Khartoum sama call the Rooney metric to come in nama Alika min Khanna Avila calm because naughty so early him walk the love for him Allah MBA him to come be shaking. Set to mingle Mr. Daptone what event a hater come and shake him Phaedra woohoo.

00:03:52 --> 00:04:35

So that gives the fallout leads in the context of a hot bucket prophesize some saying hunters become obligatory upon us, so do the hedge. But if you remember last time, we mentioned the man has at least three times kept repeating one of the Sahaba is that every year, I'm going to have you guys on the problem sites that I'm saying about excessive questioning. And we talked about that last time in great detail what is meant by excessive questioning? Not to get the wrong idea. We're not allowed to ask questions for clarification, but it was a type of questioning, which we discussed last time and differing with the profit meaning disagreeing with a prophet which is covered rarely. And that's

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

part of the Hadith. Now

00:04:38 --> 00:04:49

I wanted to look at the other part of the Hadith which is also very important and Allah talk about it. And that is when the prophesy sort of says

00:04:50 --> 00:04:51

he says

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

is that enough to convey shame.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:01

federal minimum Mr. Dotto.

00:05:03 --> 00:05:04

What is the hate to come?

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

Yeah, what is uh

00:05:09 --> 00:05:13

let me get it from the Muslim hoodies

00:05:17 --> 00:05:57

Yeah. Why is that I hate to come and shake him further woohoo, or funeral? Why did Tony boohoo as he's mentioned in the headache, so when I order you to do something, then do it, do it as much as you can. But when I forbid you from doing something, stay away from it. So I'm gonna discuss now, the wordings of how he prophesized them give advice about whether he commanded an order to do something, he said, Do it as much as you can. And he didn't say that in regards to when he forbids you from doing something from the MaHA Rama, but that which was made haram.

00:05:58 --> 00:06:18

He in that case didn't say stay away from it as much as you can. He said, Just stay away from it or leave it alone or, or yet stay away from it or leave it alone. Salama, then go on, discuss this. And in fact, I'll mention to you what some of the Allama said before I

00:06:19 --> 00:06:28

conclude with a summary what I think is the best opinion in regards to the understanding of this island project, for example,

00:06:29 --> 00:06:33

don't actually have this he said that

00:06:34 --> 00:06:36

many Allah ma took from this

00:06:38 --> 00:06:46

that this that which is forbidden, is is more stronger.

00:06:47 --> 00:06:53

Yeah, is stronger or much more serious than that which is ordered? Yeah.

00:06:54 --> 00:07:02

And he said this is the the statement of Imam Ahmed as well. And he's humbly so he should know because he's following the mother of

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05

humble as well.

00:07:06 --> 00:07:08

And he goes further to say

00:07:10 --> 00:07:13

that some of the alumni say because in regards to

00:07:15 --> 00:08:06

the orders for doing things, the foreign aid that which is been made obligatory to do there is always exemptions given for situation whereas in regards to that, which is made haram, you very rarely find exemptions. And that is true, actually. However, some Allah ma some of the President and pass took this further and said that to leave the Haram has a greater priority than to do that, which is order from the far end from the obligatory duties and acts. Okay. And they took partly indirectly from this hadith, because they said look for haram. It's the prophets are saying stay away from it's so strict with it. And whereas for a what is Mid font, and obligatory he's saying do

00:08:06 --> 00:08:07

it as much as you can.

00:08:10 --> 00:08:22

So is that really the case that staying away from Haram has a greater priority than doing the fried especially when we come to a Baghdad and other obligatory things.

00:08:23 --> 00:08:56

Actually, even Roger himself says he disagrees with this and he says the US the some of the Allama, who have the standing of getting prior to staying away from her arm over doing the obligatory acts. They use another Hadith together with this one, which is a Hadith mentioned by Imam Tirmidhi in his Algeria, reported reporting for Abu Hurayrah the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it tequila Muharram taken out bitterness, the be

00:08:57 --> 00:09:15

stay away from the Haram The prohibitions, so that you can be the Alberta nurse means so that you can be the most worshipping of human beings meaning so you can excel in being those who are any bad.

00:09:16 --> 00:09:18

Yeah, what that'd be mad.

00:09:19 --> 00:09:30

Be mad. Allahu electical Adnan ness and be content with what Allah has, has a portion for you so that you can be so

00:09:32 --> 00:09:59

you will be the richest of human beings because you're content with what you have. What assing Elijah Eric tech minute and be best behaved and good with the labor and you will be a real movement a real believer. What a heavenly nurse metalhead Bulleen f6 Second Muslim man and love for other people what you love for yourself and you will really be a real Muslim you

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

A while I took some traffic in gesloten tactic to meet up and do not be excessive in laughter because excessive laughter kills or deadens the hawk. This is the Hadith.

00:10:17 --> 00:10:18

Even Roger who mentioned

00:10:19 --> 00:11:07

the Allama using this himself says this hadith is weak. And actually he's right. Because Imam trembling also who's actually mentioned the Hadith in his collection, has already pointed that out as the years before that, even though he puts it in his collection, he says himself that this is not authentic to the Prophet sallahu wa salam, but this is most likely a statement of has no bacillary has no battery, who was Tabby, and Zahid, who has had little to do with the words of Lee lived on meager means and hustle and bustle who died in 110 heater he man permitted This is most likely his statement so I'm a shareholder today also my teacher says the same as the man permit he says most

00:11:07 --> 00:11:24

likely see this is not to the Prophet SAW Aslam, yet its meaning in most part of it is available from many other heavies, even if it is authentic. The first part is what's their take, they say it tequila Mahan Intercon tacos,

00:11:25 --> 00:12:15

but the nurse yet stay away from the prohibitions so that you can be the most serving serving the most worshiping human human beings. Well, that doesn't actually say that staying away from prohibitions is a greater priority from doing the FARA when it says other than Nasus, using a superlative which means it's compact saying it is you'll be the most worst shipping if you do that. In other words, if the the word bad has already mentioned, inherent in that meaning is that you are already doing the thorough it's already bad that now if you want to be the best of those who are doing the rather than also stay away from the haram. In other words, don't be just doing worship and

00:12:15 --> 00:12:30

then falling into doing harms in your life of lying, cheating, deceiving, stealing, etc, etc. Okay, so even if it was authentically serif, it doesn't give that meaning. It doesn't give that meaning.

00:12:31 --> 00:12:33

As is being

00:12:36 --> 00:12:57

as it's been implied by some of the scholars who use this abuse, other parts of the Hadith we get about neighbors about being good with the neighbor about loving for others, what you love for yourself, about being content with what you have, and you feel enriched, these are all in many authentic hadith these statements. Yeah, so even though has not

00:12:58 --> 00:13:17

the best way is saying this, we find these these ideas and these teachings from authentic statements of the prophets, Allah wa salam in regards to don't be excessive in laughter, where you can understand why but there's nothing authentic from the Prophet SAW Islam that it kills the heart. In fact, one of the best friends of

00:13:18 --> 00:13:34

of the, the person has no Busbee who's mentioning this. One of the best friends is this friend called Edna serene, who's a great Muhaddith and a great scholar. Yeah, who also died in the same year, and they're very next to each other.

00:13:35 --> 00:13:55

And it is, it is documented that even serene despite being a great scholar and reporter of Hadees he used to laugh so much sometimes that he used to fall fall backwards. But you know, when laughter is medicine, there's a context to it. You know, access in anything of course is disliked anyway.

00:13:56 --> 00:14:39

But you know, about mentioning about laughter and, and to laugh only a little, not too much. Even the Hadith in Bukhari, which mentions about laughter and the promises and dislike disliking excessive laughter is done in the context linked with this leaf. Yeah, the same time if you remember we talking when we talked last time about excessive questioning, we were saying that some people were asking silly questions, excessive questions, as a mockery. Yeah. Are the laughing a joke or Well, who's my father then? Where's my grandmother, I lost blah, blah, blah, blah. So and there were others like that who were laughing at the time. So it was in that context again, have you seen

00:14:39 --> 00:14:57

Buhari the prophesy some delivered the football and that's what he was doing when they were doing this excessive questioning. And one of the things he said in that context, he said, Because he must have seen some of these people asking these to be laughing. He said, load Bala who nama level loca HC Tom Khalil and wala K Tom Caffee. Ron.

00:14:58 --> 00:15:00

If you knew what

00:15:00 --> 00:15:09

I know you would laugh only a little and you would cry much. So there's a context to why he's saying that. Yeah. People

00:15:10 --> 00:15:31

laughing and making a mockery Alaskan and questions of the context of it. And we need to remember that but anyway coming back to those who use the Hadith which Tirmidhi says himself, the source of it is weak. But even if it's authentic, it doesn't give that meaning directly as does this study.

00:15:33 --> 00:15:34

Even Roger

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

goes on further, I've already likely disagrees with those who make leaving the prohibitions as a priority over doing that, which is obligatory, he disagrees.

00:15:47 --> 00:15:52

As majority of scholars, Eisley disagreed with this stance, it seems

00:15:54 --> 00:16:05

and in one for example, he caught he mentions one or two things I don't got time to go into everything but he also caught something from if normobaric

00:16:06 --> 00:16:15

from the solid from the cubby Tabby in times or carbene time Tommy Fabian time or like

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

saying, Lian allroad

00:16:20 --> 00:16:29

dinner man main Shubha team a hub booty Layyah mean at a sub Tata be meity Alpha mia bella citta Miata, Al.

00:16:30 --> 00:16:55

He says Mobarak that it is more loving for me that I reject a coin money or Durham silver coin, which has some doubt in its origin. Yeah, meaning I'm taking out of not just justness that I reject it is better meaning I leave the Haram then I given sadaqa

00:16:56 --> 00:17:03

100,000 and 100,000. Even if I get to 600,000. He's talking about sadaqa, not obligatory Sokka

00:17:05 --> 00:17:12

is better in that context? Also, a privilege of says the same thing. He says that.

00:17:13 --> 00:17:49

Doing the words. The third? Yeah. Is more virtuous than leaving the Haram actually. Yeah. However, in the case of voluntary good deeds extra, then in that regard, of course, it is better you spend your energy staying away from Muhammad haram, because haram staying away from is an obligation? And actually, actually, what is obligatory? And what is haram? Actually are two sides of the same coin.

00:17:50 --> 00:18:21

Yeah, but there is a difference. And we'll come to that they can be two sides of the same coin, for example, it is obligatory to pray five times today. Therefore, on the other side of the coin, it is haram to leave five daily prayers. Yeah, it is obligatory to fast a month of Ramadan without an excuse. Therefore it is haram to leave fast in the month of Ramadan. So it's two sides of the same coin. Yeah. So that is that can be seen generally,

00:18:22 --> 00:18:30

however, still, as other scholars said, and I would say and I'll explain why. In a short while there is a priority.

00:18:32 --> 00:19:20

Key of doing that, which we are ordained to do midfoot dollars to do, especially from the bad debt. They have a priority over leaving the prohibitions, yeah. Yeah, in opposite to what some of the scholars actually claim in opposite to that, you know, some could admit, you could put it on the same footing but rarely you begin by that which, why because as even Daniel says, as well, when you're ordered to do something of when Islam came, and we embraced Islam, we are all there to do something requires us actively to get open to something. Muhammad is an absence of doing something you actually just sit there if you just sit there avoid haram. Yeah, it's not necessarily a

00:19:20 --> 00:19:46

proactive situation. Yeah. Whereas standing up for Salah, making getting up and making wudu and make a doing the fight requires proactivity requires the existence of something rather than the absence of something. The absence of something of just staying away from haram. So the deen of Islam requires this without Islam to be proactive with our tongue and with our deeds.

00:19:48 --> 00:19:49

So in that sense

00:19:51 --> 00:20:00

it will read your quotes Ahmed bin Abdulaziz as well. And you know even Roger sometimes quotes like the likes of a blog memobottle quote mentioned earlier and obey

00:20:00 --> 00:20:03

novelize These who is known as the second owner,

00:20:04 --> 00:20:30

who was Khalifa for just a few years, how authentic it is to Omar bin Abdulaziz is not corroborated. It may not be even sent by Omar Abdulaziz. But the comment is not we're not claiming so comment from the Prophet sighs them, but why I mentioned it is but because the comment is made by some pious person and he makes sense and a bunch of agrees with that kind of sense as do other scholars so

00:20:31 --> 00:20:42

whether it was Omar Abdulaziz or not Omar bin Abdulaziz a lot. This is what he said Lisa, taqwa Malay was a Yamaha. What athlete female Boehner VALIC he says Taqwa isn't

00:20:44 --> 00:20:58

standing in prayer tonight and fasting during the day. Now is he talking about obligatory worship is not busy. He's talking about voluntary because standing in prayer in the night is a voluntary deed.

00:20:59 --> 00:21:24

And a Sam on the heart He's talking about throughout the year. He's talking about the sound of Ramadan or mixing between them both right? He says we're lacking the taqwa at that Ummah after the Allah who he says however Taqwa God consciousness and real of Allah is to perform what Allah has ordered as farmed and to leave that which Allah has made haram

00:21:25 --> 00:21:26


00:21:27 --> 00:21:32

but what takes priority so he's putting the what he's putting

00:21:34 --> 00:21:51

in third place is voluntary good deeds. Yeah. And second place he's putting leaving the haram for in Canada a valid Amal for our hydroxide and if there is, if you do anything beyond that, then it is good upon God. And another statement

00:21:57 --> 00:21:58

just give me one second.

00:22:00 --> 00:22:01

He says

00:22:02 --> 00:22:10

well, they to an Nila or sal de vida Salah wattle humps seawell WITR what N dS Sachar Walla

00:22:12 --> 00:22:32

00:22:33 --> 00:22:42

for agile who female haram Allah who are layer for I'm sick and so this is a beautiful statement he said I'd love

00:22:43 --> 00:23:18

that I love that I pray that I don't pray aside from the five daily prayers except overtook and that I performed this occur I get this occur here does occur and I don't give any other sadaqa after that. A not even a theorem not even a penny or a silver coin and then I fast Ramadan I don't fast any other fast after that not even a day ever. That I perform the hajj and I don't have a slum and I don't do any other Hajj meaning Umrah, Hajj extra after that ever, then I

00:23:19 --> 00:23:20

then I

00:23:21 --> 00:23:56

use all the rest of my strength, not in those extra worships. But in staying away from what Allah has made it haram upon me that I use my energy doing that. So notice what he's doing. Yeah, he's talking about first the priority of doing the DAT, which is where the obligatory and then second priority is given to staying away from Muhammad haram. Yeah, and not doing lots of extra about that while following him around. He said I'd like to use my stent in doing that instead.

00:23:57 --> 00:23:58


00:24:02 --> 00:24:05

that's what Roger says And

00:24:11 --> 00:24:13

okay, now,

00:24:15 --> 00:24:22

if we look at when I looked at Zara Bozo, and you know, she examples or has his

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

exposition of the 40 year lease in three big volumes in

00:24:28 --> 00:24:46

English, it's interesting because Sheikh Zaragoza and this regard are giving priority to the to staying away from haram overdoing the Fuhrer if he falls on the side of those scholars who said that so in other words, he goes against a project.

00:24:47 --> 00:24:59

Yeah, he goes against civil Rajab. And he claims that many scholars, I don't think that's corroborated. We're of that opinion. Yeah. Like in religious centers.

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

few scholars had this position but it's not a bozo seems to initially take the position. Yeah, contrary to even Rajib saying that it's quite clear from the Quran and Sunnah, that staying away from haram, it has a greater priority than doing the FARA, in the orders of the Prophet SAW Selim and using this hadith as well. And interestingly, he used it the Hadith, which I mentioned earlier in turmeric, whichever and Roger mentioned and said it was weak, and a terminally says it's weak, but he takes it as good police and it tequila Muharram yeah, stay away from the prohibitions, so that you can be the most worshipping of human beings. Again, let me repeat, it doesn't give that

00:25:45 --> 00:26:01

idea. It doesn't directly give that idea at all. You are reading into it to say that staying away from haram Haram is a greater priority. No, it doesn't get the idea even if it was authentic.

00:26:02 --> 00:26:42

Isn't a bozo goes further. And he mentioned a book alpha. And he messaged me no titanium in the am is also so humbly like even Roger, but more from the eighth century after his era, the student of even Tamia and he said in an even quite young in his book as the white the benefits and family law for sure as I was mentioning that because it got me to go on. Read the 20 D the number of pages more than 1213 pages on this issue from ignore him in his book, but as our Bozo rejects the stance taken

00:26:43 --> 00:27:35

by in the IBM which is an agreement Abner Rajan and agreement we want what I'm saying. And he says that it will carry on using a lot of rational kinds of arguments to argue the priority of of doing the obligatory deeds, there is a greater priority than staying away from haram in use a lot of rational arguments, and most of them can be rejected, because we have with us the Quran and Sunnah. Well, I beg to differ. Because when you actually look at even Ibaka Ian's arguments actually is beautiful. It gives more than 20 reasons in his argument, to show that doing the obligatory deeds, especially in the ritual worship area has a greater priority than staying away from the MaHA Rama

00:27:35 --> 00:28:11

that's not to reduce staying away from haram by the way. Yeah, but definitely there's a priority shown. And he says according to Quran and Sunnah, and he quotes from the Quran and Sunnah in most of his points. So checks are both so I didn't read the whole thing, or his conclusion is in error, because most of his arguments are not based on rationale but based on evidence. In fact, checks are bozos argument is based on just one Hadith, which, which is weak, the same Hadith tequila Muharram, which is weak itself, and doesn't give that direct meaning which he is claiming.

00:28:13 --> 00:28:16

So, some of the arguments

00:28:17 --> 00:29:01

in Aetherium uses for example, and I won't mention all of them, unless there's some of them which give direct evidence from the Quran. For example, he mentioned a Hadith from Bukhari Muslim in one of his points and he says that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, I have been madly in love law of Salah to to Allah worked he has the most loving of deeds before Allah is Salah performed at its time. Most Loving deed Yeah, most loving takes priority therefore is the that's the obligatory so I performed his time. So how come he doesn't mention it? The most loving deed is to leave the Haram or leave Zina or leave stealing but he mentioned the most loving date to Allah. Hadith messenger

00:29:01 --> 00:29:18

Bukhari Muslim yeah not intermarry very saying it's weak. So this counters straightaway The argument being put forward by Zaragoza and a few who put forward the idea of staying away for Haram as a greater thing loving to Allah then which is another Hadith

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

and not missing might even Roger but I like to mention it which is going to come also in Imam know with Arbaeen and it's a hadith which is authentic

00:29:31 --> 00:29:34

hadith number 38. And now we partner with

00:29:36 --> 00:29:59

the Saudi could see the prophesy Islam said But Allah says a part of this. Well Mr. Takadanobaba Ilya Abdi be shaped in a heartbeat Ilya McDarrah to LA and my servant doesn't grow nearer to me my slave doesn't grow near to me with anything more loved, more love to me, than what I have made obligatory for

00:30:00 --> 00:30:44

for him or her by serving my slave doesn't grow nearer to me with anything more loved. In other words, the most loving thing to Allah is that which Allah saying, I have made fun upon him. So that's most loving thing similar to your Wallah. Yes, I'll be your Takako Ilya Bina awfully hot topic but and my slave continues to grow near to me with with with extra good quality good days until I love him. So the first part you see that the most loving thing to Allah and growing close to him is to do the frog it is to perform the Ferrari the obligatory acts taking priority over over staying over and staying away from Muhammad from the prohibitions.

00:30:46 --> 00:30:48

Also, interestingly,

00:30:50 --> 00:30:52

and this is mentioned by in

00:30:53 --> 00:30:54

by him as well

00:30:57 --> 00:30:58


00:31:02 --> 00:31:12

the bird that which are fried actually helped the heart and the Eman to increase to give you strength then to stay away from the Ohara mark.

00:31:13 --> 00:31:15

And the other way around doesn't apply.

00:31:17 --> 00:32:10

Staying away from haram like I said, is not an active process. You're not eating pig you're not drinking hammer. Yeah, on a daily basis Muslim we don't we hardly think about it. But it doesn't increase me every day with Eman whereas when I do my salah and when I do my fasting in Ramadan that definitely increases with increases with Imam Ali actually then that Eman that salah. That's why Allah said in the Quran in Salah tan ha annual fast Chai well monka surely Salah yeah prevents you keeps you away from all that which is lewd. Yeah. And all that which is wrong. And Mancha, Salah does that. So fast Shan mancha is from the Haram salah, which is an obligate is and five daily is to

00:32:10 --> 00:32:48

give you the strength and the man therefore takes priority. Yeah, to keep you away from the Haram it will aid you to do that. Whereas not the other way around doesn't apply. Staying away from around what nested dry drive you to go and do the Salah and fasted Ramadan? No, it will not. It will not. In fact, it can have the opposite effect. Not the opposite effect. But staying away from around could be a very passive thing you are hardly think about it. And it isn't necessary, as many people Muslims to stay away from Iran, but they're actually not performing the thyroid. And, you know,

00:32:49 --> 00:32:53

this is this is a problem in the Muslim world.

00:32:54 --> 00:33:07

Certainly, I when I've traveled the Muslim world, and I remember certainly on a few cases in Pakistan, even lost earlier this year, and when I've been before, I find two extremes of people

00:33:09 --> 00:33:53

and one is reacting to the other. There are those who call themselves the Cabal followers. Yeah, the love bomb is poetry. And of course he does did amazing poetry. There's no doubt nobody can doubt that. But clearly Akbar had a problem with the MO Lana's and the movie culture. Yeah, I don't mean the Allamanda scholarship, the movie culture the negatives of the movie culture he had a problem with Yeah. And why and these people who following bound have the similar problem because they saw that people who are extra religious with destiny in their hands wearing the robes and the turban and the long beards and praying extra praying and sticking around the mosque all the time, that they

00:33:53 --> 00:33:56

found them also to be those who are after

00:33:57 --> 00:34:23

any hook crook and means many of them not all of them to try and gain money, money and they were involved in deception and lies and gang culture all these kinds of things. Yeah, all these kinds of things. So, one extreme is doing the bad that which is being taught by this culture is all right, just do a bada Bada bing bada they will reduce religion.

00:34:24 --> 00:34:52

Yeah, and this is a problem for a long time in the Muslim world not just in Pakistan, they reduced religion to to the five pillars a few ritual worship, pray five times a day fasting Ramadan, and then just be doing now now it's fast is it now which Salah is extra, which snacks can you do blah, blah, blah, and they're totally disconnected from the character of people and what they were behaving like in society, because their own character did not reflect

00:34:53 --> 00:34:59

reflect what the character should be a good pious believer. Yeah, so that's one extreme

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

to neglect the character behavior and not to stay away from haram

00:35:06 --> 00:35:14

not staying away from haram which is lying deceiving. Yeah, filling your pockets at the expense of others, etc, etc.

00:35:15 --> 00:35:38

So the other side reacted and said, Oh, you know, oh, look at all this prayer all this fasting what good at it do nothing. It's just a very important to stay away from haram. Haram is the priority as long as you're not cheating anybody as long as you're not deceiving anybody along not doing anybody Yeah, harming anybody. It's fine. That's what Islam

00:35:39 --> 00:36:20

real meaning is? Yeah. Why is this another extreme? Because they don't pray five times a day. These people, many of them, they don't fast in Ramadan? Yeah. As they may some of them faster number they certainly don't prefer and they make this as an excuse. Yeah. That is all right. The real reason the real meaning is as though they don't need the salah and the prophesy. Salam. Yeah. The example needed to pray not only five times a day, but extra. And these people on the, on this extreme thing, they don't need Salah that Allah is merciful because they're not going around harming anybody. Actually, it's a very dangerous position to be in. And actually, despite doing all that will make

00:36:20 --> 00:36:52

you fall into line and deceiving, and fill you with arrogance. That's what I've seen with some people like that. Because they look down on the moral reason and a majority of them. Yeah, and they look down on their prayers and their fasting. That's not the idea. The problem isn't the salah and the fasting. Yet the problem is the people who have who have broken away from good character, but you don't react the other way and think I don't need to pray five times a day. And in the end, it leads to a shared tonic.

00:36:53 --> 00:37:12

Gratitude of not having the drive to bow down or prostrate before Allah subhanaw taala and one who doesn't do that, brothers and sisters will never be full of humility, but targets will and so yeah, the obligation

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


00:37:18 --> 00:37:28

haram. Interestingly, just to finish with zero Bozo, as domestic and local young disagreeing with him just to over the next page, is that a bozo says something interesting.

00:37:30 --> 00:37:52

Because no claims position is like that, or even Rajab and many other scholars, that the YG but the five daily prayers, fasting and Ramadan that Khan had, they are a priority after that comes dangle hen Bahama and then the extra noir full sunnah, etc are all after that if somebody has the time the ability to do that.

00:37:54 --> 00:38:03

They will have that position it will clearly mix up position. So what does that proposal say over the next page after disagreeing with North Korea? He says,

00:38:04 --> 00:38:20

well, actually of course, the priority is given to staying away from haram after you've done the watch the back of the front of Salah and fasting and staying away from haram is only applicable when you compare it to doing

00:38:21 --> 00:38:40

extra fasting and extra Ibadat etc. So he just contradicted himself he basically now in his statement, he agreed with NACA you every time you can't disagree with them NACA human then say that's what it Nephilim said, basically. So anyway, that's, that's in that regard. Now.

00:38:42 --> 00:38:45

I want to say further

00:38:46 --> 00:38:47


00:38:49 --> 00:38:51

on this aspect of the Hadith,

00:38:53 --> 00:39:00

as I said earlier, even though we can say that the order to do and, and

00:39:02 --> 00:39:09

if you don't do it becomes Haram are two sides of the same coin as a scenario What do you mean on that tomorrow? We know that the

00:39:10 --> 00:39:16

two faces of the same coin, nevertheless, nevertheless,

00:39:18 --> 00:39:19

you see

00:39:22 --> 00:39:59

the order to do as I said earlier, especially in the event that came through revelation for Muslims to do something. Yeah. A bad yeah, the ritual worship. Yeah, because that was going to bring us to closer to Allah subhanho wa taala, a band that was sent for us to purify us, inside and out, so that our behavior can then be affected and it can keep us away. If you look at as I mentioned before, Salah is to keep us away from evil, all kinds of evil, so fasting, again, if you look at the Quran and Sunnah, that it is to develop taco

00:40:00 --> 00:40:19

Ah, the Quran and the Sunnah. We have many examples of the one who doesn't stay away from falsity and lies. They get nothing from their fast except hunger and thirst, don't we? Yeah, so fasting these Virji but actually help us they came as an aid to then help us to stay away from that which was forbidden.

00:40:21 --> 00:40:24

So, staying away from haram

00:40:26 --> 00:40:27

if you

00:40:33 --> 00:40:34

if you look at

00:40:39 --> 00:40:45

prophesize Somebody says, Well, Matt and Matt to come be fair to men who Mr. Tato. Yeah.

00:40:47 --> 00:41:39

And for the hate to come and who faces Tinubu for that, Woohoo, yeah, when I already to do something, then do it as much as you are as much as you can. When I tell you to stay away from something, then stay away from it. Actually, notice he says do from the order of doing things. Yeah. Proactively doing good. In other words, there's no limit. That's why do have it as much as you are able to. There's no limits. Actually, in that one I already do something is included, include it indirectly doing extra good beyond that, which is obligatory as well. An extra good have no awful there's no limits. Yeah, that's why the Quran also says Allah has the data. So this hadith is in

00:41:39 --> 00:42:07

line with that. Be in all unconscious and fearful Allah as much as you're able to. That is through inside and outside by doing deeds, and that which Ibadat and others beyond that, to develop that Taqwa. Yeah. Hence, because there's no limits, yeah, it doesn't. The police didn't say just do it. He said, Do as much as you can. In other words, you can carry on doing that.

00:42:08 --> 00:42:09


00:42:10 --> 00:42:15

we know that even with a bear that one can go to extremes.

00:42:17 --> 00:42:47

As much as you can means there's a limit as well. That's also the understanding. I'm not sure you can mean that much as you're able to bear before he actually can become harmful for you. And harm and harm. Getting overtired getting sick. Yeah, or becoming an OBE but even the bad that becoming injurious to you is actually negative. Yeah, is a negative Allah his Messenger Islam doesn't like that. Doesn't like that.

00:42:49 --> 00:42:50


00:42:51 --> 00:42:54

in regards to that, for example,

00:42:55 --> 00:42:57

the Hadith mentioned by

00:43:08 --> 00:43:08


00:43:10 --> 00:43:13

a sauna without which is authentic, the Prophet SAW Salem

00:43:17 --> 00:43:18

stood up on Juma

00:43:22 --> 00:44:14

and he stood up leaning on his stick or his bow is reported by the companion here saying for Hamidullah or asna Lee he praised Allah and glorified Allah subhanaw taala and then he said some gentle light and beautiful words of a full of blessing yeah the Prophet sighs This is his hobby reporting this and then he said so now all you have done is in nichrome lend to T Qu. O land def Aluko Lemma and omentum or map to configure via Tim and Matt to convey what I can set D Do whatever Shiro so the problems are densities or people surely you will not you will never be able to do all that I order you to do you will not be able to do it

00:44:16 --> 00:44:20

you will never be able to do all that I've ordered you to do

00:44:22 --> 00:44:23


00:44:24 --> 00:44:59

so that shows you that we never we we don't have the ability to bear yeah and we can go to explain indirectly that showing. Yeah, partly it's it's indicating this table the pocket size limit I don't think you're doing everything. In other words don't become arrogant or complacent that I'm doing so much and I've reached the pinnacle you'll never reach the pinnacle you'll never be able to do all grab ordered you probably salatu salam Yeah. However he sang said they do what Ebisu Yes, sir means closing the gaps. Yeah.

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

Like there's lots of holes in the wall and you keep plugging one and unplugging one one by one little by little, it means little by little receive the glad tidings do little by little and receive the glad tidings. Yeah.

00:45:15 --> 00:46:00

So that's one of these the prophesised alum, and another one, which in which indicates again this one more clearly about the extremes in Nevada the pocket size Salam was almost what we need I should have mentioned in Hadith in Sahih Muslim and similarly is mentioning Buhari as well, that she said that the Prophet SAW Islam came upon her and a woman was sitting next to her when the Prophet SAW Islam came and the prophesy Islam he said Who's this an omen? What within is about guys you said? I said, it is a woman she doesn't sleep at night she just prays all night long. So in behind that is the prophesies from said

00:46:01 --> 00:46:09

stop from doing this. Yeah, he told her off stop. Let it go man, I'm ALMA to Tikun

00:46:11 --> 00:46:38

upon you are deeds which you are able to bear this is beyond bearing you've gone to the extreme. Yeah. Paula hula Yama law who had that time Alou Allah never grows weary of your a bother until you actually grow weary what kinda and then statement of overall weak but so here again and there's many other studies on similar lines of

00:46:41 --> 00:46:55

of clarifying that you can actually go to extreme so don't go to accept that's why Bakula master that must attach to him as much as you're able to bear. Yeah, much of you're able to bear

00:46:56 --> 00:46:57


00:47:06 --> 00:47:54

and again, for when it comes to stay, same prohibition, the province asinine sayings, Feds Danny boo didn't say as much as you stay away from it full stop, leave it alone. Number one, because also the prohibitions are a limited number of things. You can easily list the number of prohibitions in Islam on a piece of paper. It's not a long, long, endless list, whereas the good deeds you can do is endless, isn't it? You can I can carry on adding to good deeds. It's a limitless thing. Where as prohibitions because it's a limited list, yeah, especially in regards to the major sins, then stay away from the major thing that since the Prophet sallallahu sallam said

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

and from also from this hadith

00:48:03 --> 00:48:15

the Allameh brought out a ruling, which is interesting ruling, saying Donald Masada to the roadmap said that the Mocha demo Allah will muster half.

00:48:16 --> 00:48:37

What does that mean? It means preventing harm. Yeah, as the greater priority over bringing the benefit. Remember Islam, its guidance rules regulations, about bringing benefit to human beings to believer and preventing them from harm individually and as a society.

00:48:38 --> 00:48:40

But preventing harm is

00:48:42 --> 00:49:26

is taken into bigger consideration, especially in the mom alert in the things where we've been given room for is the house that we decide where is the benefit, and where is the harm? If Harm and benefit, as Allama, say are equal in any issue, then the thing should be left. Because yet if they're equal, if you're able to measure and you think the harm from this thing, and the and the benefit, even though there's benefit equal to the arm, you leave that thing because harm, staying away from harm was a greater priority. And that's even the case brothers and sisters in Baghdad. Because

00:49:27 --> 00:49:38

if you look at the bare dirt, and compared to Mahabharata prohibitions, the bad that and watch the bad and the things which are mean being made fun upon us.

00:49:40 --> 00:49:48

With the things which have been missed out upon us, and especially the bad, you'll find that there is many situations

00:49:50 --> 00:49:55

of exemptions and Ross Ross means facilitation

00:49:56 --> 00:49:59

for each other. Yeah, and that is to prevent

00:50:00 --> 00:50:08

Do you going into harm to prevent his going into harm? That's why this principle is so important. How for example,

00:50:09 --> 00:50:30

we look at Salah for example, Salah if you're on a journey Yeah, it's produced us is reduced, the number of records are reduced except for, for general Muslim to have the Salah and you can combine yeah at one time and as an answer and you can combine Maghrib and Isha Yeah.

00:50:31 --> 00:50:41

If you're ill, yet Salah can be performed standing, if you're not able to sing if you're not able to line down or if you're not able to even using the eyes and

00:50:42 --> 00:51:24

the head. Yeah, so look at the facilitation given and if you look at will do the same, not able to do taharah if you can't find water or your L band triangle, if you look at fasting on the journey, Ill so many reasons for exemptions here and there's Zakah only if you have the nisab the minimal amount and if you have debt etc Nausicaa I could carry on these are the ferocity of the Baghdad the very pinnacle you get if you look at Muhammad and prohibitions you'll see that there isn't that's why five stables stay away from them. Yeah. That's why it came that way. Because

00:51:25 --> 00:51:57

it Baghdad especially in the fried, give us personal benefit of increased a man very important, of course, no doubt, you notice with whereas Hydromat the Haram things usually have harm not just yourself but harm to society. For example, you look at auto killing, yeah, from the prohibitions, it's harming other people because you're killing somebody else. And it harms their family and causes

00:51:58 --> 00:52:17

problems in society because Zina is engaged with somebody else causes consequences of that Zina, which is haram as stealing, again stealing from somebody else isn't it? So you look at the the Haram things and even the the other things of backbiting somebody or slandering somebody harmful for others, these are

00:52:21 --> 00:52:46

some of the things or feel that things actually have harmful itself like a drinking heartbreak can have a society of harm as well, because the drunken person because if harming society, or eating consumed, which is again, more to do with a personal harm, so there are a few exceptions, but generally, the Mahanama the list of them are harmful to wider to the public, as as well as yours, as well as yourself.

00:52:47 --> 00:52:55

And therefore, if you notice, in contrast to the things which have been made obligatory, where there's lots of facility facilitate,

00:52:57 --> 00:53:37

law has been given. There's none here. Very few. In fact, situations, there's no situation, for example, where you're allowed to kill somebody. Yeah. And now you're in this situation, okay? If somebody falls to you and say, right, I'm gonna kill you. If you don't kill that person. Are you allowed to kill them? No, you're not still allowed to kill the other innocent person. You have to get killed yourself. Even if they say I'm going to kill another family member of yours. Are you allowed to go and kill somebody else? When you have no right to? No authority over a really simple? No, you're not allowed. If you look at a state killing, if you're forced to go and steal by somebody

00:53:37 --> 00:54:19

forcing you otherwise they're going to do less than that to you. Even if you're hungry. Actually, you're not allowed to steal. Stealing is haram because it's actually harming somebody else. Yeah, over the top waiving the penalty of cutting the and doesn't mean to say he was saying, I'll allow you to go steal. No, they can still be given a punishment, but he removed the cutting of the hand as a punishment. Yeah. And the similarly said about Xena as well. Yeah. Somebody says you have to go and do Xena adultery with somebody Are you allowed to do it because they are forcing you to do it? No, you're not. You're not allowed. There's no exemption. That's why the puppy says I'm saying stay

00:54:19 --> 00:54:20

away from this full stop.

00:54:22 --> 00:54:33

Only in the case of something like eating a frenzy of eating the dead or drinking Hummer is allowed as a last resort in a situation of facing death.

00:54:35 --> 00:54:53

Last Resort are facing death that's not in the case of leaving fasting in the month of Ramadan. It's not only when you're facing death, but it says Now you don't have to fast said if you're on a journey if you're ill with any minimal any kind of illness from a headache to a fever anything. Yeah, as some people said even a

00:54:56 --> 00:54:59

small prick on the finger which is hurting you all day long can be an exemption from fastenings

00:55:00 --> 00:55:03

Look at the contrast in them. And you can see why then

00:55:06 --> 00:55:09

Allah ma had this principle of

00:55:10 --> 00:55:22

that saving people from harm as the greater priority on bringing them good. You notice even in the bad debt to avoid harm, Allah made it easy.

00:55:24 --> 00:55:58

And that's the principle from the Quran actually because Allah Sumatra says, you read the Allahu como yo, sir. Well, I read to become an officer. After mentioning the fast, obligatory Ramadan is saying, exemption for the traveler and the ill person What is Allah says, Allah wants to make things easy for you, Allah doesn't want to put you in difficulty. Difficulty is harm. Allah doesn't want to harm you from making those things which are obligatory for you. And therefore so much facilities given the same principle again, of the deme didn't come to harm people but to benefit them.

00:56:01 --> 00:56:07

And similarly, in the Quran, Allah Siva you read Allah Who are you happy for uncom Allah when

00:56:08 --> 00:56:22

she's to reduce and lighten your load, while holy called in some wildlife, and the human being indeed has been created week. Yeah, so the Sharia came for that week in certain Yeah, with all these ease and facilitation.

00:56:25 --> 00:56:38

Marja Allah, Allah COVID-19 him in homage. Yeah, he has not put in the dean and Dean of Islam any burden, the burden that we are not able to bear? Yeah. So

00:56:39 --> 00:56:40

this is

00:56:43 --> 00:56:49

also a principal draw from the chronic IRA and also implied, implied indirectly in this hadith.

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

of Sheikh being therefore staying away from the Mahara mark

00:56:59 --> 00:57:37

is, hasn't gone on to the idea of lots of exemptions, but very much stay away from and also is clearly like festival stay away from it. Because with the Cabal and the big scenes, especially, and it can only be with the big scenes, but small since none of us are free from Yeah, saintly stuff sets cleanse to be free of small sins or London, they're, they're lying because nobody can be free of it. So we talking about the major sins, and there are a small list of them. And it is not difficult to stay away from them. That's why the prophesied Islam says stay away from it full stop. Yeah.

00:57:39 --> 00:58:07

And of course, that depends on what will help us and hence the priority for the bad guy what will help us as is our obligatory bear that that will help us to increase our Eman to be able to stand against shape on that's why they were made obligatory, the minimal five daily prayers, they are there to help us and then we use us strength to avoid falling into bad character instead of just

00:58:09 --> 00:58:44

just polishing the inside while the outside is rotten in behavior. Yeah, Islam did come to give you a theory of polishing inside and carry on polishing, and just stay and dwelling in the mosque. While the devil is taken over the town and the streets and the shops and, and and your homes and you're sitting in the mosque polishing yourself day and night with Salah fasting that's not Islam, brothers and sisters, that's a misunderstanding of Islam. We're actually supposed to come out and in that with our characters spread that.

00:58:45 --> 00:59:12

Spread that and share the light of this deen and good character with others so that we can reform and bring the society away from shape on any beliefs and from his enticing to that which is good and wholesome, both in food and drink and especially in behavior. Whether it's from a family, parents, family, neighbors, and society at large. I hope that

00:59:13 --> 00:59:15


00:59:16 --> 00:59:19

and has brought out some lessons from this

00:59:22 --> 00:59:59

wonderful Hadith of the Prophet SAW Islam which Imam no way you can understand why he chose this hadith remember he chooses those Hadees from his own title, which are the very basics and foundations of Islam and this has so much of the foundation and the essence of Islam doesn't it? This hadith even though he's only taken a part of it, actually the Hadith, the part to do with hajj it is there that was a context of it. But the the principles and that's why you see why now we've taken the hotspot out of it and the fact that we've been taken just that portion, which has wide application

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

Even if you didn't have the context of, of the the HUD issue that was being discussed at a time yet, the teaching has come from Texas right across the board in the life of believers, May Allah guide us to

01:00:16 --> 01:00:37

make use of those who are regular index Salah makers of those who who fulfill the obligations increases in taekwon Eman and give us a centum Cova to stay away from the Mohammed Allama Amin I'll stop there and open for any questions prevalences

01:00:44 --> 01:01:05

slightly can brother I just want to say just cycle ahead for explaining about the excessive laughter Hadith because I always wondered about that one and I never really understood it so that was very nicely explained just gonna have thank you yes, it was like all of a sudden she says laughing

01:01:10 --> 01:01:11

not excessive

01:01:13 --> 01:01:16

just joking. What is excessive

01:01:19 --> 01:01:21

Okay, any other questions?

01:01:24 --> 01:01:40

Oh, couldn't you come back if an unclaimed earlier argument about that which is compulsory being more important than avoiding sin with the idea that Christians and Jews for example who don't read sunnah don't do that which is compulsory consent antigen that they avoid that which is haram ensure

01:01:42 --> 01:01:56

no, you can't use it there because they have we talking about within Islam. So the first part of Islam is to accept Alon is messenger or sort of less than the Shahada. Yeah, yeah.

01:01:57 --> 01:02:00

So they haven't done that. Okay.

01:02:02 --> 01:02:07

So you can't apply that argument to them in that sense. Okay.

01:02:08 --> 01:02:18

We can see the outside the outside the fold of Islam. Yeah, that makes sense. Yeah. We don't need to go down this road to show where they are because they're already outside of older Islam.

01:02:20 --> 01:02:32

We're talking about within Islam once you become a believer, then then the priority of the bad that of Salah and fasting etc. Well, they don't have that upon them because they haven't done the shahada yet.

01:02:33 --> 01:02:34


01:02:35 --> 01:02:36
