or salat wa salam ala Ashleigh, feel MBA well mousseline wa ala alihi wa sahbihi. Asma in my bad

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

you're less fun to look around Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa sallam Allah Allah and your papa Mina, while Finland and Zulu banana while you kufra and say, Tina,

00:00:51 --> 00:01:44

and you're gonna be Elma Nafi. What is going well set? Well, I'm Alan Saleh and Mota Kabbalah one who has won a warmer hula and financial Mola Wynette, Mina seed Allah Hinata Hotel, where Elijah merci wala hola wala Quwata illa Billahi la li la creme. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds Peace and blessings on his prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, but insistence, after saints, sending peace and the mercy of Allah on you all. We ask Allah to accept from us to forgive us to wipe away our sins, to nourish us with knowledge and understanding which is beneficial to us and and give us white sustenance. He is the one we rely on he is our guardian and what an excellent Guardian

00:01:44 --> 00:01:57

What an excellent helper Allah is Glory be to Him. To Him is our return on Him we are utterly dependent after workout in there is no power matrix that except that ALLAH

00:01:58 --> 00:02:05

Glory be to Him. Returning to our Hadith for I think it's a full session on Hadith number 26.

00:02:07 --> 00:02:11

As I was saying to Zephyr here earlier

00:02:15 --> 00:02:21

I couldn't do these are these one give each one an hour a half an hour.

00:02:23 --> 00:02:40

And I remember if when I started the RBI in Namibia, I said to you Well, if you want that is absolutely fine. Because there's lots available on YouTube and there's other people doing it and stuff are written which are quite brief. Yeah. And gives you a gist.

00:02:41 --> 00:02:49

But my purpose wasn't that my purpose was to do a neck Cyclopedic kind of journey through this hadith. Yeah.

00:02:51 --> 00:03:29

Which has been done in writing but in presentation in Arabic perhaps it's been done but I haven't found it really in English. So I wanted to give it to people who are students of knowledge of Islam who want to go deeper and find the deeper gems and jewels as has been done before as I said in writing classical texts from Jamia Hickam or even Brexit which we've been referring to and also Imam to fees attached here the unique one in doing the tertiary or exposition of these hadith of course, so the idea was to go deeper and

00:03:32 --> 00:03:37

an add to it to make it relevant as well in taking the lessons in our society

00:03:39 --> 00:03:42

it is good to look at classical texts always

00:03:44 --> 00:04:35

because they give you you can't discard them I'm not one of those who say of because this scholar I don't agree with some of that particular opinion so we've been everything that they say that is so narrow minded and dangerous because there is no scholar from the greatest of scholars from Sahaba Tabby in and beyond till this day who didn't make a mistake and there is the head yeah, that's why a blonde Abbas Imam Malik as well as reporters saying the same thing that we Yeah, every one every human being and they're talking about people of knowledge of Islam now can be taken to task and different with and disagreed with except one. Wha wha Asahi boo Hoggle. Kava, and that is a person

00:04:35 --> 00:04:59

in this grave. They're speaking in Medina Imam Malik was teaching in mosquito Naboo in Medina and blunderbuss is reported who said the same. So of course, therefore, you have differences of opinion from Sahaba we do have a difference of opinion which is with Rasulullah Salallahu Salam Yeah, some Allahu alayhi salam. So when you have that potential for difference, therefore

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

Not everything that any scholar that you can eat is going to be have opinions that you will agree with. Yeah, whether your people have knowledge or more likely but with the arm the public less likely because they're really not going to know. Yeah, where there's

00:05:18 --> 00:05:41

the intricacies obviously how they're not meant to know. They can follow what whoever they want as a scholar who they rely on. Yeah, with the objective is I want to get to the truth and the best of truth yet not blindly either. Not blindly, either, because they're gonna have to answer for themselves on the day of judgment as to why they blindly followed somebody. The Quran is always negative.

00:05:42 --> 00:05:44

Really, clean means blind following.

00:05:45 --> 00:06:08

Yeah. And yes, we said that students, the public Muslim, they're not expected to clearly still go direct to Quran and Sunnah for Islamic rulings and to get deeper knowledge that they go to scholars festa Lu Allah decree in controllata, Allah Moon as Allah, so Allah says, as people, yeah, all those people have knowledge, if you do not know.

00:06:10 --> 00:06:55

And that means also, if that's the case, there must be people of knowledge to be able to ask. Yeah, but you ask with the attitude of asking questions to ask for evidence as well not just accept anything, the plate to say that all we follow what the our forefathers did is the way of demonstrating that's how Quran, Quran, Allah Swatara criticizes not just the ship, he criticizes Allah the approach of getting knowledge and relying on it as being Oh, it's what our forefathers said. That stuck lead. So you're pretty criticized is the method as well.

00:06:56 --> 00:07:06

As Jive as being ignorant? Yeah, this is a way of ignorance. Yeah, we'll just do what, you know what was handed down to us? Yeah. So

00:07:07 --> 00:07:14

coming back to the idea was to go deeper into it.

00:07:15 --> 00:07:22

Look at even not discard the classical works, because there's jewels and gems in those classic roles. I tell you,

00:07:23 --> 00:07:24

what I studied fetco

00:07:26 --> 00:07:52

of the, the scholars of the past, from the Maga hip, yeah, from their books, or whatever, I studied this. And these are Hadith from the classical works, jewels and gems in them. But I don't agree with everything they say. If I was just to present you want, they said, then you'll left you'll be left in space somewhere because the left lived in that time. And they're talking and writing as I'm talking in my time.

00:07:54 --> 00:08:14

The times we're talking about, there's no cars, there's no aeroplanes. It's a totally different society. How can I just talk in the past like that? So one side of it is to just talk in the past. And the other side is to discard all the past and just talk as though a fresh that as though you're the first scholar who arrived on the, on the face of the earth, which is nonsense.

00:08:16 --> 00:08:31

As famously reminds me, and many Muslim scholars said the same Isaac Newton when he was asked about how he reached these heights in physics. Yeah, and His laws that he came with it, he said, I stood on the shoulders of giants who went before me.

00:08:32 --> 00:08:33

That's humility, isn't it?

00:08:35 --> 00:08:39

Even though you come with something completely new, but it's built on something.

00:08:41 --> 00:08:52

So the balance is to build on something. Yeah. And be critical in your thinking and make it relevant for today. And then, then, of course, the idea of

00:08:54 --> 00:09:19

depths of Ibn Rajab gives to these ahaadeeth and the likes of mum a two three and Al hates me in his works. These are the most famous works that comprehensive, the many volumes. Yeah. The idea is, is not just superfluous because it goes back to

00:09:21 --> 00:09:37

the Quran. And the Hadith the Prophet Seisen are full of deep gems aren't there, the verse is there therefore, we have to fast it from the Quran, because the Prophet Sarsa was given the virtue of being jawai Alkalyn

00:09:39 --> 00:09:58

Swami Alkalyn which is brevity of speech when deep and wide meaning as we see in these, these, each Hadith, sometimes under it has so many chapters and headings that you can open up an account you and if you don't, you can just skim over them which is fine, but

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

if you want to do

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

skipping the gym, you're gonna go a little bit deeper. Yeah, the jewels are there still, even if you take advice, if you take a half an hour, think of this, these ahaadeeth You'll still have jewels. I'm not saying you're not gonna get any. Yeah, but there'll be others which are left all the batter of how deep you want to go, and how much you want to think and and be critical in the thinking and see what's actually there, isn't it? Yeah, so the province has some jovial, Kelim relatives, it was the Quran itself, but also his speech, the Hadith, he was gifted because you look at these words in this hadith and look at them, and then I say within four hours, you know, we're on the fourth hour

00:10:39 --> 00:10:50

now on this study. It is a short movie, but it's the topic of it. Yeah, the topics under it. That open up so many doors. Yeah.

00:10:51 --> 00:11:35

So let me repeat the Hadith again, and then we'll carry on approximately where we left off last time. I said Eva, Abu Hurayrah and others as we've seen other versions of it. Yeah, when we open the first session of others as well like more meaning Aisha Tara galana mentioned similar Hadith. And have you thought about that as well. So this one will Hurayrah in a mom that was picked which is from Al Bukhari and Muslim Yeah, he says, that color pseudo Lysol, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, messenger of Allah Islam said Kulu Salam I mean a nasally he sadhaka tone Kula Yeoman tatlow Fie his shrimps. Each now Solana we've already said the best translation and interpretation of that is from

00:11:35 --> 00:11:55

other Hadith of the Prophet sighs So I'm saying every joint Yeah, in the 60s mentioned in the hadith of Omar mobian I shattered Allah which is authentic. Every joint from human beings upon them is the duty of giving sadaqa every day the sun comes up meaning every day Yeah, it's an expression.

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

So then it goes on top the rubina's named sadaqa.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:04

To make

00:12:05 --> 00:12:14

peace between two people is a sadhaka what to no Rajul feeder but he for that middle who Allah and to help a person

00:12:16 --> 00:12:17

on his or her mount.

00:12:20 --> 00:12:48

Or to lift him upon lift him or her upon them out. Yeah, oh to lift up. Tarva Allahu alayhi Mata Mata who sadaqa or to lift his or her belonging onto the Mount in it is a sadaqa these three things Yeah, we'll come back to them. Well, Kelly Mottai VESA and the good work is a sort of local comprehensive that is

00:12:50 --> 00:13:12

what we call the hot what intense she has he la sala soda, and every footstep that you take towards salah, which means towards the masjid, in it is a sadaqa with a charity. What To me it will Aza and it Tory sadaqa. And you're removing something harmful from the road or the path Yeah. In it is.

00:13:15 --> 00:13:18

Is a sadhaka Yeah. Is

00:13:21 --> 00:13:24

so last time we stopped at

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

making peace between

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

two people. The towards the end of that

00:13:36 --> 00:13:43

and, and the virtues in that. Yeah. That Allah Sumatra is saying yeah,

00:13:45 --> 00:14:12

but Asli who may not awaken what topple Allah Allah Allah come to humble. Yeah, it's 100 Plus what I say. So make a make amends between your brothers and sisters. They now awaken after mentioning after mentioning warring factions of Muslims. Yeah, that's talking about a different level now. It's talking about fighting actually.

00:14:13 --> 00:14:14

Bye fighting

00:14:15 --> 00:14:32

that to try and stop the this is all to avoid breakdown in society has given you the extreme example of fighting where everything under it is included isn't it to make good amends between people below gives the idea justly

00:14:34 --> 00:14:34


00:14:36 --> 00:14:41

So Cadila vainness name and here in this hadith

00:14:42 --> 00:14:50

the Quran gives the reference the reference I've given you in the Quran is talking about believers in Gujarat. Yeah.

00:14:51 --> 00:14:53

So but they now awaken

00:14:54 --> 00:14:59

and the context of algebra is warring and fighting faction between

00:15:00 --> 00:15:08

Believers, but the hadith is general than that. wider than that. Yeah. Both because

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

the idea of making peace is making peace between people,

00:15:17 --> 00:15:17

isn't it?

00:15:18 --> 00:16:08

We don't, we don't say make peace between Muslims and non Muslims. Let them slaughter each other, if they're your neighbors or living in your community. Yeah. And then you just clap. Is that right? What are moral is that? And how immoral is that? Actually? It's taking making, because actually in the end, if what brotherhood and sisterhood begins with children of Adam, yeah, prophesized. I'm saying in the final sermon, yeah, when we did see that, yeah, when he says that no Arab is superior to a non Arab and no, not superior to an Arab, no black person over a white person and no white person over is superior over a black person. All of you are children of Adam. So being children of

00:16:08 --> 00:16:24

Adam, and Adam was created from just clay soil. Yeah. So all of us being children rather than may makes us brothers and sisters, doesn't it? What does that mean? Yeah. Or Children of Adam out? That's mentioned by the provinces so many times?

00:16:26 --> 00:16:26


00:16:28 --> 00:16:52

So children of Adam, when you are children of same parents, you automatically become brothers and sisters, says brothers and sisters in humanity. And yes, this specific added to that special Brothers Sisters in Dean, which is so powerful, which is takes priority, and the stronger no doubt over the blood ties, actually.

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

It really is. And then

00:16:58 --> 00:17:10

only if there's a difference in Dean a stronger, but then when you are as believers, yeah, as believers, and then you have the blood ties, those blood ties now become a priority again.

00:17:12 --> 00:17:15

All Muslims, but your blood ties have a greater priority now.

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


00:17:19 --> 00:17:26

making peace between two people just leave? Yeah, means were responsible in our society.

00:17:28 --> 00:17:31

In society, of making peace between two people.

00:17:33 --> 00:17:45

And I mentioned the husband I mentioned in our circles before about the Hadith to do with, yeah, men can or you know, Billa, who will Yeoman whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, which is I think, the number

00:17:46 --> 00:18:09

17 or 18. in novel ways. We covered it before. It says file Ukraine Jarrah. They should be kind and considerate to their neighbor. And we remember we said Imam now we said the jar? The the neighbor is the neighborhood. Yeah, in one. He says 40 houses that were 40 houses in every direction. He's talking about his time.

00:18:11 --> 00:18:48

isn't me? Ma'am? No. Are we talking about seventh century? Are you here? Are you talking over seven, nearly seven, 800 years ago, he's talking about in that direction. And then he also said in your land. All of them are your neighbors. Now we've got cars and travel Villa available. So you're talking about your community? Aren't you? Is your neighborhood? Yeah. So make treat them well will not not include making peace between two neighbors who are quarreling. They may be non Muslim. That's included in it. Yeah, that's included in it.

00:18:51 --> 00:18:53

So that little Venus named sadaqa.

00:18:55 --> 00:18:55

And you know,

00:19:00 --> 00:19:04

as I said before, ta D. Lu, ta, D Lu, come from other.

00:19:06 --> 00:19:10

Yeah. So when he's saying justly make pF, yet

00:19:11 --> 00:19:27

to act justly between two people is a charity. That's another way of translating it. Yeah, it means means make amends, but do it justly? So actually, here is the idea of also the volume and the mcglue.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:30

Isn't it? Yeah.

00:19:31 --> 00:19:36

One is the wrongdoer, the perpetrator and the other is the one who is the victim.

00:19:38 --> 00:19:59

So you interject to try and put the balance. The reality is, of course, often when you're making amends between people. There's a bit of room on both sides. If you ask one of them, usually people say I'm the victim. I've done nothing wrong. How often have I heard that in my life, from people near and far?

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

From when the other party have done everything wrong to me, and I'm innocent.

00:20:05 --> 00:20:06

You know,

00:20:07 --> 00:20:08

at times,

00:20:09 --> 00:20:13

people of one party have said, can't you sort something out?

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

Between us?

00:20:18 --> 00:20:22

Yeah. So I've said, okay, yeah, potentially I can.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:53

Are you then we, if you want me to an arbitrator first, I have to ask party B as well, the others if they want me to interject and be an arbitrator? Because if they say, No, I'm not gonna get anywhere. And they have a right. Because they might feel I'm biased. I'm not the right person. All right. But anyway, before I go to them, are you willing to accept your part? If there's any negative mistakes? Are you willing to accept

00:20:54 --> 00:20:59

that as well? So the person said, but I haven't done anything wrong. I said, what?

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

If that's gonna be your approach? There is no way I can help here, because you're innocent already, by your own judgment, but an arbitrator is going to realize and listen to your side. And you're going to have to listen to realize that perhaps Perhaps you are innocent. Perhaps you are the Muslim, the victim. But usually there's a bit of this and a bit of that from both sides, isn't it brothers and sisters? Really, there is. So this is something about the intricacies of and that why justice? Yeah, justice. If we take this on, then we're gonna answer to Allah SubhanAllah. You know, sometimes we trivialize we think he's nothing but we forget if anything Islam is about Yeah, I

00:21:50 --> 00:22:03

remember I quoted a couple of weeks ago, the province Aslam saying Don't look down on anything. Yeah, even a small thing as not being a source of silicone child.

00:22:04 --> 00:22:07

Yeah. So sometimes we think these little things.

00:22:10 --> 00:22:19

Allah is not going to listen to take us account for everything. If Allah is gonna reward you and a multiplier rewards for picking a song up from the road.

00:22:21 --> 00:22:34

Yeah, then if you're going to be unjust in between talking to two people, and also backbite. Yeah, and slanders somebody, then Allah is picking that up. And the angel on the left is writing that as well. Isn't that right?

00:22:37 --> 00:22:41

This is the beauty of this Deen. It penetrates

00:22:42 --> 00:22:55

every portion of your life and body, not make it impossible. That's what I don't want to mean. But the salam makes you aware and conscious being this way, which is the reality of who you are. Yeah.

00:22:56 --> 00:23:02

So this so called scientism and atheism, they can't even answer what is consciousness?

00:23:03 --> 00:23:05

And when did it go alive?

00:23:06 --> 00:23:26

Consciousness is a self awareness of me. And an awareness of the in my environment, to be able to see and discuss Oh, look, the animals are fast disappearing, the snow is melting. Let's have a meeting. Let's decide on this. Which other being did that before the human being? Right?

00:23:28 --> 00:23:53

A small amount of it. Yeah. So the meeting in the chimpanzees was a basic meeting, but they had a meeting at least because they've got some consciousness. They haven't got it at our level. But they've got some consciousness out there. Zero. How did it go from zero to 100%. That week? 100%. We can realize that these there was no gradual illness. It suddenly came with Adam and Hawa and insulin.

00:23:54 --> 00:23:56

It's amazing.

00:23:57 --> 00:24:14

So that consciousness, that awareness, Islam just sparkled sparks. It sets it alight. Yeah. Because despite having the consciousness, can I live a life of a sheep? We talked about the cleaver earlier.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:38

We talked about that lead blind following in Islam. Now let's apply it to humanity. Human beings are full of sheep, are we not? Hence why adverse work so well. Advertising, doesn't it? They spend millions on it, because we take it in. Isn't that right? Yeah. Now I'm talking about

00:24:40 --> 00:24:43

consciousness being suppressed. Yeah.

00:24:45 --> 00:25:00

Adverse programs. Yeah, you want to watch telly social media. There's a constant brainwashing going on. Every film in Hollywood and Bollywood has an agenda that's been made with you can see how it's changed from the 60s and say

00:25:00 --> 00:25:07

Have a taste to its moral values. What is perpetrating now? Isn't it to kill your conscience?

00:25:08 --> 00:25:21

Yeah, and there are people, whoever they are, they want to put their agenda and run it down your throat. But they don't do it by turning up and saying Open your mouth, I'm going to ram it down your throat.

00:25:23 --> 00:25:27

Because that would be obvious, but it's a much cleverer way

00:25:33 --> 00:25:43

you know, the French and Italians in colonialism will well known for the kind of people who tend to open set open your mouth, I'll run it down your throat.

00:25:44 --> 00:26:01

Read history, isn't that right? Mussolini? The Dictator. And what he did in North Africa in the Muslim lands, is well recorded. Yeah, and the French were also nasty with that colonialism. The British,

00:26:03 --> 00:26:19

usually, but not always, they are also wretched as well. Yeah. But sometimes they are also well known as the Red Indians will tell you why command speaks with folk tongue. They put down their own films that they made from Hollywood,

00:26:20 --> 00:26:51

this Tuesday. Now, the white man comes and that's not the French show, actually. And it's not the Italian suit, the British who went there, speak with a sweet tongue come down will give you this will do that they spoke tongue. Okay. So very well known for this of this is this is called cleverness, but a cleverness using sweet tongue for a nasty objective, not for adults. But for volume. Isn't it?

00:26:52 --> 00:27:36

Often British colonialism is like that. Yeah, it's like that. Sometimes it's like chop the head off. There's plenty of that. Yeah. Plenty of that. That's why Indians disappeared. Red Indians, whether in the north of America or the middle of America, and just almost wiped out or even South America. Yeah, when the Spanish turned up as well, who were very similar to the French and the Italians. Yeah. And then when the British went towards Australia, and what they did there as well to the Aborigines, etc. Why I mentioned that it's not attended. The idea is, of how you overpower the consciousness of others. It can be done by

00:27:38 --> 00:27:58

by the sword, or the hammer or the gun. But it can also be done cleverly, through. Now we have the weapons of social media and advertising. You don't set mentioned this before, you don't need to send armies into the Middle East in the Muslim world. You're already succeeding. They're all watching the same films.

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

And then, and the same social media now every child is carrying the same phone watching the same YouTube videos. So what they're learning now their values, and they're being brainwashed by this kind of thing. And they say, oh, no, no, no, we don't want to brainwash religions or brainwashing people.

00:28:22 --> 00:28:25

You're doing the brainwashing? Because you've done this to us.

00:28:27 --> 00:28:40

Yeah, as I mentioned in my hotbar, the audacity of the Germans to turn up the football team to do that in Muslim lands. Yeah. Remember, this is the date, or that's the thing. We're doing this every day.

00:28:41 --> 00:28:47

We can't speak our principles and values because we're suddenly being accused of hate speech, hate speech.

00:28:49 --> 00:28:53

Under the guise of, of freedom of speech,

00:28:54 --> 00:28:57

freedom of speech under the guise of that

00:28:58 --> 00:29:03

anyway, the point coming back to is

00:29:06 --> 00:29:19

how to consciousness Islam raises the consciousness of human being and his moral values. His or her moral what Allah Samantha created in sound for

00:29:20 --> 00:29:35

it can live a life of a sheep as an animal. Yeah, just following the animal instincts of devouring, taking for the self and well I want him to say procreating but because

00:29:36 --> 00:29:40

the animals do that, but human beings you see this as a human being difference again.

00:29:42 --> 00:29:44

Yeah, ours is not necessary to procreate.

00:29:46 --> 00:29:59

Yeah, but these are Allah subhanaw taala in Islam he sent didn't cancel them out, didn't tell us to become hermits and monks to go into the caves against our nature, but he also

00:30:00 --> 00:30:33

So, nevertheless raise the level of the consciousness that he blessed us with. Yeah, to a level of care and morality and kindness and forgiveness and honest and justice and truth and against evil standing that's what that's real humanity isn't it? Yeah, and Islam brings those out beautifully. And that's why I say it penetrates every avenue in the in the makeup of the human being as an individual and the family and a society doesn't it?

00:30:34 --> 00:30:35

We fall short

00:30:37 --> 00:30:47

we don't look at ourselves as Puritans. Yeah. And look down on others but this is where to excel isn't it?

00:30:49 --> 00:30:54

This is where to excel and these are these is telling you how you excel in South Africa

00:30:56 --> 00:30:56

isn't it

00:30:58 --> 00:31:02

and the Hadith before even though you have no money

00:31:03 --> 00:31:17

that's the previous studies isn't it? But you can excel in your the way you deal and and your kindness to other people in your environment. Everything around you. You excel as a human being

00:31:19 --> 00:31:32

and so that's why prophesized them says in nama Boo is totally autumn me my mum my caramel Athlon or solid halacha theory WyoTech I have only been sent

00:31:34 --> 00:31:45

for the mission of perfecting, perfecting and completing the Makati my flock the best of morality, virtues and character

00:31:47 --> 00:31:53

to make good and best the character to complete it. The values are already there.

00:31:55 --> 00:32:00

All societies Haven't we didn't say to introduce the Makati Monica Leo Mima.

00:32:01 --> 00:32:23

So they were already there. Others can have them, but it takes them to a different level. Yeah. And that's it's excelling, isn't it? This is excelling. This is how we know how to excel before Allah subhanaw taala. He wants Allah loves those who are doing these kinds of things. I'm doing this in their life.

00:32:24 --> 00:32:24


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


00:32:28 --> 00:32:29


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

that the second one

00:32:35 --> 00:32:38

is helping it notice it says you ino Rajan?

00:32:41 --> 00:32:44

If you translate it literally was the translation.

00:32:46 --> 00:32:48

You'll find it in your books anyway. What does it say?

00:32:51 --> 00:32:54

So Hale is great. They're a translation to help.

00:32:57 --> 00:32:58

You How

00:32:59 --> 00:33:01

to help. What does it say to help her?

00:33:04 --> 00:33:07

Lift his does it say to help a man?

00:33:08 --> 00:33:10

Yes, that's what I'm getting at?

00:33:13 --> 00:33:24

Yes, so literally, in Arabic. I've done this before with you. So I'm just reminding you notice it says Rachel, Rachel means man.

00:33:26 --> 00:33:27

In literal meaning.

00:33:28 --> 00:33:47

Yes. However, like the Hadith, where it mentions, seven people will be given the shade of Allah on the day there is no shade. And it mentions Rachel many times there as well. And I said to you at that time, does that mean only a man or no woman

00:33:50 --> 00:34:25

cannot mean that here, if you take a literal translation, does it mean to say if it's a man, then I get sad about because I'm helping a man. And if it's a man or a woman, there's no startup? Costs. It doesn't. But language, everyday language and culture affects the everyday language of people and of the Prophet sallahu wa salam because he's a man of his time. So when he says to help a man, because usually most of the time out in the society men are doing the business going on camels, women did as well.

00:34:26 --> 00:34:36

Yeah, majority time. It's men. So the Rachel, if you translate it properly to nowadays would mean to help a person.

00:34:38 --> 00:34:38


00:34:40 --> 00:34:47

Normally will say to you know, it's only to help a man and if it's to help a woman, you're not gonna get any reward with nonsense, wouldn't it? What kind of?

00:34:48 --> 00:34:50

Yeah, so the better translation

00:34:51 --> 00:34:53

would be to say to help a person

00:34:59 --> 00:35:00

No, because it

00:35:00 --> 00:35:42

Doing SSA he's because he's doing a literal translation and they need to think when they translate. Yeah. Especially in the kind of sensitive society you got today now which sees the word mankind is a problem. Yeah. Mankind nobody ever had a problem with the word mankind nobody ever had a problem with Rachel here no Arab does they know what it meant? It meant human beings Yeah. But it became a problem with second fed face feminism etc from the 60s that's when it became a problem it's not really a problem because we know when we say mankind that it means all of humanity doesn't everybody understood that for centuries they understood it why is it changed suddenly now

00:35:43 --> 00:35:49

and now now of course they went further in the last 4050 years to go to God to Allah

00:35:51 --> 00:35:52

so they said there's a

00:35:53 --> 00:36:00

meeting going on with the Christian priests now to discuss

00:36:03 --> 00:36:10

to remove the idea of he from god yeah.

00:36:11 --> 00:36:13

Because it gives a masculine

00:36:14 --> 00:36:19

image and to use something which isn't here but they're all right we're using she

00:36:23 --> 00:36:32

nonsense is that yeah, in society, the masculine in all languages English and especially in Arabic

00:36:34 --> 00:36:42

when the masculine is use it covered male and female, but when you use the female she it definitely means chi

00:36:44 --> 00:36:49

so why is it that you remove he which actually for God

00:36:51 --> 00:36:53

is not masculine? Yeah.

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

Allah Swatara is non binary

00:36:59 --> 00:37:01

he's the only one who's non binary

00:37:03 --> 00:37:07

He created everything as Grant says many times in binary

00:37:09 --> 00:37:16

so any human being who says Now I'm non binary, you know, he or she is saying I am god

00:37:20 --> 00:37:36

sorry, Google, you need to remove non binary from one of the one of the 3040 50 100 Now I don't know how many is got to as to what gender I am, okay? We're a lot of nonsense and codswallop. Okay, only Allah is non binary.

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

Yeah, even if he says he because he says there is no like country him and he doesn't give birth and he didn't have anybody can't get it through that the he therefore doesn't make it. Now, you can only use what's available in language for human beings. It was he or she, you're not going to use it, because they definitely makes it into agenda makes it feminine.

00:38:00 --> 00:38:01


00:38:04 --> 00:38:05

to help a person.

00:38:06 --> 00:38:15

Yeah, onto the mound that is helping them. But then he goes further on that kind of helped me to actually lift them and put them onto the mount

00:38:17 --> 00:38:42

to different levels in there. And, or to help with their belongings and put them onto the mount. So on the Mount, of course, because there's no cars in those days, right. But there's still horses and camels around today. So it's still applicable, isn't it? Yeah. So we go to Morocco, and say, and the children and family say, oh, I want to go on a horse. I want to go on a camel.

00:38:45 --> 00:39:07

So to help somebody on the camel is still applicable, isn't it? camels and horses haven't died out. So this is not relevant anymore. It can be Yeah. And when they go out in the desert, still whichever country where they still got camels, help them with their belongings as well. But it's still also applicable in its meaning to helping somebody into that car, isn't it?

00:39:09 --> 00:39:22

Yeah, onto the bus. somebody's walking with a stick, help go and help somebody onto the bus and went in their wheelchair. lift them out of the wheelchair and put them on.

00:39:23 --> 00:39:55

That's That's great saying help with their belongings with their suitcases. Somebody who's alright. Yeah, they're struggling with getting their bag on. Yeah, we're on the train or we're on the bus or we're outside waiting. We pick up that suitcase and put it on? Yeah, put it on. Yeah, in the plane, take it off, put it anywhere where you are. All of that applies all of these sort of look at the benefits and therefore don't again go back to the heavyweight problem that don't look down on however small that thing is because and actually

00:39:58 --> 00:39:59

it's because I'm pleased

00:40:00 --> 00:40:11

In a way, but very saddened in a way that if I do that nowadays for elderly lady, she's in total shock or elderly man that she or he's been helped in today's world.

00:40:16 --> 00:40:24

So that's positive in one respect, because I've made somebody happy. But it's a sad reflection of the society that we become, isn't it?

00:40:25 --> 00:40:37

And now with all this nonsense about gender garbage that's going on. Yeah. Now, people are actually reluctant to get up and give a seat to a lady.

00:40:39 --> 00:40:43

And some lady might say what you're doing that for your behave awkwardly.

00:40:44 --> 00:40:46

Best thing is to then sit down again, no problem.

00:40:48 --> 00:40:54

But it's producing a society which where males are now reluctant to actually be helpful.

00:40:56 --> 00:41:05

All right, and even for the elderly is still okay. But you know, you're gonna start having this idea of age phobia. Why do I look older? Some people

00:41:07 --> 00:41:12

so somebody's trying to do good, it's been anyway, I think we should still carry on.

00:41:14 --> 00:41:25

Make our seats available. Yeah. For on the bus on the train or wherever we are for the lady, especially for the elderly, especially male or female. Yeah.

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

And for the pregnant, etc, etc. is not right.

00:41:33 --> 00:41:34


00:41:35 --> 00:41:36

that kind of help

00:41:39 --> 00:41:41

is talking about

00:41:42 --> 00:41:46

just in society, isn't it? It's talking about strangers.

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

And Allah's promising you reward for it?

00:41:52 --> 00:41:55

As though you've given charity multiplied many times over

00:41:57 --> 00:41:58

and then

00:42:00 --> 00:42:01

prophesized to him said

00:42:04 --> 00:42:10

Oh, yeah to follow Allah you have done that I belongings as well. While telling me to buy EBA

00:42:11 --> 00:42:11


00:42:12 --> 00:42:14

Well Kalama to tayyiba sadhaka.

00:42:15 --> 00:42:19

And the good word is a charity.

00:42:21 --> 00:42:22

Good word.

00:42:24 --> 00:42:29

So good word. And notice in the context of the Hadith here

00:42:31 --> 00:42:51

because good word, if you take it out of the context of the Hadith can mean other things. The best word is like Lila like brothers and sisters. Yeah. Well, woman asks an older man Manda. Allah you are amela Solly how Paula in nanny Meenal Muslimeen.

00:42:52 --> 00:43:43

In surah Harmon center who is better on axonal polam, who is better in speech, what better words is then the one die Allah Allah then the one who is calling to Allah, wa AMI la sala Han, and he or she does good works. So in other words, they're not not practicing what they preach the beautiful the i Li just think about it, how Allah has put it in it inherently saying Thy Will Allah will amela solid calling to something good to Allah, but also themselves doing the good. So they're not hypocritical. Just doing Dawa to others. Yeah, yeah. Beautiful goes with the other words which you say limit Hakuna Matata follow? Why do you say that which you do not do? And many people haven't seen that.

00:43:43 --> 00:43:58

It's in this verse. Thy Will Allah Allah salah. Sorry, I will call and he or she says in an email Muslimeen. I am from those surely who have submitted for the Muslims. It means those who have submitted.

00:43:59 --> 00:44:16

Yeah. So that's the best speech of saying I am from those who have submitted. But in here, you could say like, like, like is the best best speech but in this context is talking about a good word meaning to others.

00:44:17 --> 00:44:19

Look at the context.

00:44:21 --> 00:44:31

A good word means a good word for others. And part man national poll. Who's better in speech is da Illa. is calling others to Allah.

00:44:32 --> 00:44:35

Yeah, calling others to Allah. But

00:44:36 --> 00:44:39

but good word is much wider than that.

00:44:40 --> 00:44:43

It's not mean every time I meet somebody, I'm preaching to them.

00:44:44 --> 00:44:51

Now look at the context of this society. Every time I meet my neighbor, I'm saying God has made the Day of Judgment.

00:44:53 --> 00:44:57

Right? You need to stop being good. Gary a dog

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


00:45:01 --> 00:45:03

you see what I'm saying?

00:45:04 --> 00:45:23

That's not what he's saying. Yeah. And you say, Well, I'm doing it, that's the best thing I can do invite them to God. In a way they say there's a wisdom and context and a place and a time isn't that and, and more so than that. My words and character with the person is the best route

00:45:24 --> 00:45:36

in Vista if you've really taken this, so literally. So good word includes that. But a good word is Good morning. How are you?

00:45:38 --> 00:45:40

Can I help you with anything? Yeah.

00:45:41 --> 00:45:56

Good words. Good word means being truthful to your neighbor, and to your friend, and to people at school people that you work with good word means not backbiting, as everybody else is doing in the in the teachers room.

00:45:58 --> 00:46:06

Yes. And in workplaces. One of the say, pitching going on. dogma is the right word. Because

00:46:08 --> 00:46:30

we've all experienced if we all lived in this society, and I've lived and been brought up in it, you know exactly what I'm talking about. And I worked in the society and work with people where people are working. Sadly, Muslims have taken on the same mantle of this garbage. Wherever you find in lunchtime in the breaks, people are doing backbiting slandering.

00:46:32 --> 00:46:34

Constantly, that's not a good word.

00:46:35 --> 00:46:37

A good word to say acquisition fair.

00:46:39 --> 00:46:54

And the move away, people don't listen. Good word. Good. That. In other words, that's opposite to good word. I mentioned it because that's what people mostly do. So good word is speaking good. If somebody good word is speaking good to somebody.

00:46:55 --> 00:46:56

Isn't it?

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


00:46:58 --> 00:47:07

So this is words of kindness. Yeah. And that good word that I'm talking about?

00:47:08 --> 00:47:10

I'm talking about general society.

00:47:11 --> 00:47:13

Yeah, strangers.

00:47:15 --> 00:47:26

Sitting on a train, sitting on a bus, sitting in a waiting room, you meet a stranger. I was sitting with my getting for my car service. There's a guy there. Who was

00:47:27 --> 00:47:40

elderly guy, it was to Japanese lady and just chatting nicely, saying some nice things. Isn't that good word? So if it's important to do the good word there. Yeah. What about the home?

00:47:42 --> 00:47:43

What about with your wife and your husband?

00:47:45 --> 00:47:46

What about with your parents?

00:47:48 --> 00:47:51

What about with the children?

00:47:53 --> 00:48:04

Rather than losing it with the children and giving a smack round the arrow and having a swear word or two and then say afterwards, the children, you know, you're not supposed to swear in Islam.

00:48:06 --> 00:48:23

Like Islam is a religion of peace as they get the stick. The more ways they did that for donkey's years. I'm sorry, many of them. Not all of them, many of them actually was the majority. If you go back to our countries, we know, we know what they did.

00:48:25 --> 00:48:29

Many have stopped, but not all of them. Okay.

00:48:30 --> 00:48:41

So given the stick, and then normally, they don't teach anything about Islam, just person learning. And then when they do hear about it, and they hear a religion of peace.

00:48:44 --> 00:48:47

You can only laugh at that, you know?

00:48:50 --> 00:48:51

Oh, my goodness.

00:48:55 --> 00:48:58

Good word and good behavior when I look at this hadith.

00:49:00 --> 00:49:34

And I look, and then people still, you know, hotbar you criticize Pakistan? Know those who are saying it because they're nationalists. Yeah. Instead of, if we can't be critical of ourselves. And I'm doing it. I'm from Pakistan. If I was an Arab doing it, they'd have a bigger goal, but they're less likely to have a goal. Or they criticized Pakistan from the member or criticize it when people go and blow Moscow with a bomb and kill a lot of Muslims. What do you want me to do? Stay quiet? Because he's Pakistan. I can't say anything negative about Pakistan.

00:49:36 --> 00:49:37

That's not

00:49:39 --> 00:49:44

that's bias and prejudice. That's exactly what Islam hit. That's a severe.

00:49:45 --> 00:49:50

Yeah, my people. They're always right. Yeah, let me criticize Syria and Egypt

00:49:51 --> 00:49:52

and the kuffaar

00:49:54 --> 00:49:58

regional peace but we blow each other up. way so wonderful.

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

A lot

00:50:01 --> 00:50:05

And this is relevant because this is talking about how we behave with each other.

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

Just a few days back in Pakistan and it was on their channels here, why ar y and z or whatever they've got

00:50:15 --> 00:50:23

some poor guy and we don't even have the full story says something negative about the Quran or does something negativity, Bernie or anything?

00:50:26 --> 00:50:26

What do they do?

00:50:28 --> 00:50:40

You've heard the story. Some of you you've seen it. They they took his clothes off. I've seen the videos of it that was shown on eBay digital as well. They took his the mob got him out of the police station.

00:50:42 --> 00:50:52

While the police was still standing there, the mob became police. Judge Jury molvi karvy everything.

00:50:53 --> 00:50:55

And they took him out dragged him out.

00:50:56 --> 00:51:09

No witnesses, no evidence taken here say, Yeah. And they drugged him and they made him naked and dragged him on the road in the street naked and beat him with sticks and stones and killed him.

00:51:10 --> 00:51:18

While they were doing that, I'm sorry, I have to mention it. But I have to mention it. Because if this is the Muslim ummah

00:51:19 --> 00:51:32

Praise be to Allah Who opened my heart to Islam. Because if I seen that as Islam from Pakistan, this kind of images, I would have run away from miles and miles, wouldn't you?

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

Wouldn't you?

00:51:36 --> 00:51:46

And then these people say Islam is a religion of peace. Yeah, feel like slapping that person who says that after they're giving you that as an image and while they were killing him,

00:51:48 --> 00:51:56

young and old with sticks, having him the kid they were shouting what? Love bake ya rasool Allah

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

stuff but Allah

00:52:03 --> 00:52:03


00:52:05 --> 00:52:11

That's all I can say to that. What kind of behavior is that? And they think they're following Islam.

00:52:13 --> 00:52:15

They think they're following Islam.

00:52:17 --> 00:52:23

So when you look at this hadith, and others about how to behave with others, and you look at that,

00:52:25 --> 00:52:26

how far are we going to work?

00:52:29 --> 00:52:38

From from a religion as the finality sent Islam from the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate,

00:52:39 --> 00:52:49

sent with Rahmatullah Allah mean a mercy to the whole of creation. The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam sent the Quran

00:52:50 --> 00:52:56

as a message of mercy. And then we see that behavior from people shouting love beg God.

00:52:58 --> 00:53:00

I just can't fathom it.

00:53:02 --> 00:53:03

No wonder we're in the state we're in.

00:53:05 --> 00:53:24

And then you think people should come and embrace Islam in large numbers. Subhanallah we actually are made amazed that people are still embracing Islam. Yeah, in the West, despite the images that were showing in the Muslim world, isn't it?

00:53:26 --> 00:53:31

Yeah, it's so it's so Anyway, coming back.

00:53:33 --> 00:53:34

I'll Kalama to talk about

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

begins a home

00:53:39 --> 00:54:17

yeah, with parents. Right with with husband and wife with children. Yeah, all the family. It starts at home. Charity begins at home. Yeah, so if you want to do good words, it's not like going to the mosque and saying mashallah, brothers. How are you? Yeah. How about embrace and everything and you go home? Gonzalez in a nasty mood and start swearing in the children's slaps business like that and treats the wife badly. Yeah, well, something's got some screws loose somewhere. Because the greater priority was at home.

00:54:18 --> 00:54:43

Yeah, yes, we need to have good work outside as well. Even outside the mosque of course, especially. Yeah. But we've got what's right under our nose, as they say, Isn't it and easily done. And most of the time when they say wreath or discuss, they talk in a general sense of brotherhood, sisterhood and society and they never mentioned hardly ever mentioned the husband and wife, oh,

00:54:44 --> 00:54:46

I guarantee for you the work

00:54:47 --> 00:54:51

and the children at home, but it's actually in this release.

00:54:53 --> 00:54:59

Because you can't understand clever to tayyiba just from this hadith, you need to go back to the Quran and Sunnah.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:20

The rest of it and see the priority parents and husband and wife relationship which is based on on Sakina Baba and Rama yeah on mutual Sakina solace between them. That's the crown. That's where it's saying on love and mercy. Now we've got love skin and mercy. Are you not going to have Kalamata tayyiba?

00:55:23 --> 00:55:27

You're going to have it there as a priority. Are you not?

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


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


00:55:32 --> 00:55:39

well, Kalima to tayyiba sadaqa so much we need to reflect and think about.

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


00:55:44 --> 00:55:50

I'm not giving you just general I'm not open the topic of parents and I haven't opened the topic versus my wife related

00:55:51 --> 00:55:53

or the our children I can say a lot mauler

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

but that would be two or three more sessions.

00:55:59 --> 00:56:21

But the point is needs to be mentioned those areas, greater priority, the priority and neighborhood and neighbors, you know, comes out of the house, and the priority gets lesser and lesser the further away you go from the home. But the biggest priority all applications this is a home in your in your vicinity, isn't it? Yeah.

00:56:24 --> 00:56:26

And that includes therefore.

00:56:27 --> 00:56:48

Now I'm gonna stop soon and we'll leave the rest of the next time. That includes the financial charities praise between the Muslim ummah one thing it is good is generous, the most generous community. All the surveys and research even in this country will show you the most generous community by far is the Muslim community.

00:56:49 --> 00:57:30

Yeah, but even given in that charity as well, too far off places, etc. It is good for us. No doubt there's sadaqa. But don't forget what's right under the nose in doing that, it doesn't compensate for it. Yeah, cruel at home. Not charitable at home and charitable far away. Yeah, we need to get it right. Be charitable far away. No doubt we should be. Yeah, it's that's also sort of, but not at the expense because it could all disappear on a day of judgment. Yeah. Yeah. If Salah and so and, and Zakah can disappear because of bad behavior with strangers?

00:57:31 --> 00:57:43

Panic. And I'll give you the next time. Yeah. If it can all disappear on the Day of Judgment. Then what about bad behavior with the ones who are the closest to you and the loved ones? Oh,

00:57:45 --> 00:57:46

it could all be canceled.

00:57:48 --> 00:57:53

So may Allah subhanho wa Taala guidance helpers, will next time.

00:57:54 --> 00:57:56

Go from the next

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

clause mentioned here

00:58:02 --> 00:58:08

about every footstep towards the thing and look at some of the other ones.

00:58:09 --> 00:58:14

And I hope we can complete it next time. And so I keep saying that every week of next.

00:58:16 --> 00:58:28

Well, that one, you know, humbly layer below me. Any questions? From people on Zoom? And here as well? On what we'll cover today, Monica.

00:58:31 --> 00:58:39

Really enjoy. Can I play? One? We'll call him ISIS. When can we take it as not

00:58:42 --> 00:58:48

saying bad site? Rage. We're sitting with the backbiting and keeping quiet with

00:58:50 --> 00:58:53

keeping quiet. Not saying bad.

00:58:54 --> 00:58:59

Yeah, I wouldn't say where there's backbiting and slander going on keeping fire.

00:59:01 --> 00:59:02

That's probably silence. I'm setting.

00:59:03 --> 00:59:13

The one who listens to the backbiting takes part of it. Because you're keeping quiet. So you need to speak and say no. Or walk away.

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


00:59:18 --> 00:59:37

Isn't it? Yeah. Because you're even in law today. And now let's say you become part of the issue. If you stay then do anything you acquire? Yeah, I'm just quietly sitting there. Somebody's beating the * out of somebody. Yeah, and become part of that problem. Isn't that right?

00:59:39 --> 00:59:49

That includes the tongue. That's why I said earlier on. You tell them no. You're Backbiting is not right Muslim or non Muslim, I'd say to non Muslims.

00:59:51 --> 00:59:59

Because everybody knows Backbiting is not good. slandering is not good. Yeah. Even though it's become so convoluted as to say

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

It definitely love

01:00:02 --> 01:00:05

to publicize in the newspapers and social media that slander

01:00:08 --> 01:00:13

we seem to thrive on it. That's how upside down it's become, but we still have to speak the truth

01:00:15 --> 01:00:17

no question on Zoom. Yeah.

01:00:18 --> 01:00:21

Why didn't the professor of the Quran

01:00:23 --> 01:00:27

has nothing to do with the topic? Why did he leave it the seed of the Quran?

01:00:29 --> 01:00:33

Anyway, let's listen. Firstly,

01:00:34 --> 01:00:48

the Quranic verses the prophesized teaching through if you look at Bukhari and Muslim you'll find chapters on Tafseer of the Quran. Not a complete one, but on verses that he talked about in the Sahaba asked about Yeah.

01:00:50 --> 01:01:15

And then Sahaba understood the Quran they taught that students as well under the Farsi you came with more detail later than that provinces and didn't come down here to write books of encyclopedias of the scene he was out I'll give you the answer to that as mean as shadows are the Alana has said What does he say he was a walking talking Quran that says the feed

01:01:20 --> 01:01:22

which is which is documented

01:01:23 --> 01:01:24

in authentic hadith

01:01:29 --> 01:01:33

Yeah, what backlighting include reading things in the newspaper online about any person

01:01:36 --> 01:01:40

you have because not really because until you read it you don't know it's about but

01:01:42 --> 01:01:53

you're not accepting it unless you can make comments and said This is slander but to enjoy reading those kinds of things when you know that this is what they're gonna do you got problem

01:01:56 --> 01:02:08

because it's not good for the soul reading filter and slander which is a lot of what written isn't it? She did that he did that she slept with him he slept with him now they're doing you know all this nonsense.

01:02:10 --> 01:02:10


01:02:12 --> 01:02:24

to be confused to be busy reading these kinds of articles is a problem for us. But to read it for the first time realize this is all slimmed down but by no that's not a problem

01:02:27 --> 01:02:28

two minutes

01:02:30 --> 01:02:33

we're nearly finished. Yeah. Okay.

01:02:37 --> 01:02:38
