gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we thank him for another opportunity to gather for his sake and for his pleasure that we can learn something about this beautiful way of life titled Islam We ask Allah azza wa jal to give us strength and give us his knowledge. Allahumma Amin. Secondly, we send peace and blessings to Allah Rasool Allah Allah turabi, wa salam O Allah.

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


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

welcome all of you and those listening online to this journey of a thematic study of SOTA 10, Nisa.

00:00:34--> 00:01:21

And it's very different from a Tafseer. So if you're thinking this is going to be a Tafseer, of solar 10 nissa. This is not the program. This is not a subject. And now we're gonna do it's a thematic study, very briefly what that was things. And the book that I've created for this program, it has every verse with its translation and some commentary beneath produce the surah once we get to it, I will walk you through exactly when we extract a subject what we do with that subject, so we will be talking, it addresses a little bit of everything, you know, so to the Bukhara, unsorted earlier Emraan, primarily focused on becoming a color of Allah. So the remedies how they bring to

00:01:21--> 00:02:06

life, this particular Sora, and what it means to you and I, and this Sora is particularly one of my favorites, because journey with me through both of those sources. So Alhamdulillah, we had finished and completed them, we just have a small chunk of sulit. As you see in front of you, this is going to be the men hedge or the way that will journey through this program, every single quiz. And the students who have studied with me know this, what you see on the screen is more or less a guide, especially for myself. And for all of you that all of that is going to be on the screen on the screen as well, you're going to see additional notes that you won't find in your book either. That's

00:02:06--> 00:02:08

my little trick to get you to write

00:02:09--> 00:02:59

your iPad, whatever it is that you're comfortable with. All of that is welcome. And aside from that, what you see in front of you, has nothing to do with sort of thing before we dive into the soda, because a lot of us probably don't know how to study, a subject of our Deen we kind of treaties is nowhere near or even close to how you will study biology or science or other subjects. These are two completely different tea to uphold and practice the message of that subject. And that's that's a huge, huge responsibility. So when you are here, object or for today's class, we will go through, I have a number of slides under this title, all of that inshallah I'll try to tie it into the soda so

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

we can before we begin

00:03:02--> 00:03:06

in terms of tests and exams, what do you guys think?

00:03:08--> 00:03:57

No. So I will test everyone. There's no question about it. And what I what I'm going to do this review sheet, so we'll come in, we'll start off with those handouts. They'll have a number of questions or comments or things like that, and then we'll discuss them just these are some of the things that I've learned in the previous classes. Because this is going to get overwhelming. I kid you not. There's a lot of material. However, I don't know how much the certain the SAT will be because I write it as I study it. As I review a lot of things, I put them on the PowerPoint slides to include that you are here to work and really focus and grab as much and

00:03:58--> 00:04:00

take as much of a loss. That being said,

00:04:02--> 00:04:47

let's take a look at what we have in front of us. I titled this. Now this discussion is going to be cetera. I except for the sincerity part. I don't think I'm going to talk about any of those things. I teach this subject very different. First thing is this, more or less the etiquettes of a student of knowledge. And it was written by a great scholar by the name of bucket abou Zaid referred to a lot of years ago, not too long ago, just a few years ago. As a matter of fact, when I was a student in in Saudi, every chance we got when we traveled to Riyadh, I'd go so eloquent and so difficult that even the Arab sitting you know, I'd be sitting be like, do you know what the chef just say?

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

Well, no, he mad that he is. He's telling me he has written hundreds of material. And this is one of them. This particular book is summarized and it's online. You can get it in PDF form and it's translated about this

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

particular subject. and in it he mentions all of the things that students need to have to be a good student with Allah subhanho wa Taala, as well as with their teacher insha Allah, this is going to be a unique experience some of the things here, perhaps no one has really brought it up and talked about. So with that being such a killer verse, which I'll come to in a moment, why I named it that knowledge is a sign an indication that Allah loves a person and has accepted them. This comes from an authentic hadith melt, success, both islamically as well as in the worldly life, if you want to guarantee that you'll have a good life in this world than in shun hardship you have in your Islamic

00:05:41--> 00:06:11

life, as well as in the worldly life. And anybody who really, you know, is is engaged in studying. They know that goal, one student asked me this question about whether getting this being accepted by Allah is adjust the Islamic knowledge or can I also allege of a line so again, another Hadith the Prophet Alayhi, salaatu, wa Salaam told us that whoever seeks a path of Islamic is one step closer to a less paradise.

00:06:12--> 00:06:44

And if if it's not one step closer, maybe some of us maybe all of us made. So this is really, really unique, to be able to be a student of Allah. And to study his Deen, there is nothing in this world that compares to there isn't. So in other words, there's nothing that Muslims can do to worship Allah, that is equal to the one. Number one, it's the most effective and the most honorable. Without him,

00:06:45--> 00:07:05

we become like animals aimlessly living without any win a lot talks about that, when we speak to them, their hearts don't comprehend localu bhulaiyaa cocona behind they have hearts and just all over them for their own sanity, that's not the right thing to do. You're trying to tell them we don't need a wall.

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

You can not no one got the most horrible credit.

00:07:09--> 00:07:23

This is the way it should be. You're trying to give them advice about the dean about this and that and Okay, okay, inshallah hire you. I think we live in a time where we have respect for scholars, and students of knowledge like yourself.

00:07:24--> 00:07:37

That's something that you have to really fight for. You know, usually people who devote devote their lives to studying and, you know, in a lot of cultures, it's looked down

00:07:38--> 00:08:26

that intention, that they just want that break, devote themselves and then get back on track. And that's a tough thing to do these days. And so, we become like this. Now, what's all of this talking about? Three things Allah describes people, and he equates them to animals, if they have three behind, and then they have eyes that they're spiritually blind. And number three, what a home as then yes, merona we have, and they have cattle, goats, sheeps and cows and things like them. This particular verse that I've quoted to you in so little out of went one step further, they're actually worse than cattle. Because I say this all the time, right? You'd if you stand beside a cow or a

00:08:26--> 00:08:29

sheep long enough, what does it eventually do? Government.

00:08:30--> 00:08:34

Allah said, my knowledge keeps poking at you.

00:08:35--> 00:09:18

Your heart doesn't move. Your eyes still can't see. But if you start poking at them, enough, maybe not the first, you know, few times, but enough, then they start you start seeing some hodaka some move. But a less said the humans who have these three qualities Balham Alba, they're actually in a worse state than cattle. Let eco Houma la Fado, this is the naval cold who's got the quality of heedlessness in them? You know it's one thing when you're stubborn about a few things in here or there it's a whole nother story when you choose somebody who has this these qualities you know what it ends up becoming? It ends up becoming just a ton of information, which I'll talk to you about a

00:09:18--> 00:09:51

little bit later. From our profits on the love it was some it's a hadith narrated in Bukhari and Muslim that when you guys all left your home to get here. There were Angel for you think oh my god, it's so cold outside. I'm going to have to do this the weather is bad. Just always remember a less sense special Angel of us. Believe it or not. So this is a really really, I hope in sha Allah something that really puts some fuel in our hearts and really continues in suits Al Baqarah verse 282

00:09:52--> 00:09:59

what tequila where you are limo como la. Have you heard of this verse before? Have you

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

With duckula we are limit como la la will be cliche in Harlem.

00:10:05--> 00:10:50

You know what's amazing? Does anybody here know what is the subject of the longest aliens? It's all about money. The longest sentence of Allah He devoted it not the Sala not to like fifth, he studied that verse. Just the fact that Allah is longest a is devoted to that subject alone tells you and I how serious Allah takes money in the own it or you're responsible for it. This is something huge to Allah. I syllogism right? You were once dead. So the point is, is when Allah says have tough. So when you apply those of the requirements, well he has one requirement, you need to have telkwa Are we all in the same page of what taqwa is, you're always thinking about him.

00:10:51--> 00:11:30

Everything you do, whether you're awake or asleep, when you go to bed, he's he's always on your mind. 24 hours a day, you never stop thinking about a law. If you're just standing outside in the hallway, just staring at a wall, you're staring with a lens in your head. That's what this is all about. The world The reason one of the wisdoms while allowing the heart and the mind to never forget Allah, you see him in everything you do. Wherever you are in this world, allies with you, the oceans, and all of this beautiful scenery. Why does the poor and go out of its way and talk about these things so much? talks about the clouds? The beauty of the sky talks about all of this stuff?

00:11:31--> 00:12:16

Why does he do that? One wisdom is that so you see his a yet that they're always surrounds, just wow. You know, and snap a quick picture or a selfie. And that's about it for Allah. That's an area that He exists. The oceans, they come like a heartbeat to you. Everywhere you go, they're talking to you. It's amazing. That's not easy, though. You really, really have to train your mind conscious of a lot. That's a spiritual training that you go through. But once you get there and you have an ounce of taqwa in your heart, you have now qualified you have become if we don't have Islamic knowledge, we become like animals, our men can and Mater for Hina sorted. And

00:12:17--> 00:12:20

you were once upon life ends up being

00:12:21--> 00:12:30

you end up going through all the things that scholars and students of Islam go through, and they're still keep saying have hamdulillah

00:12:31--> 00:12:39

and everyone else is going through the same hardship. And they're like, Where is he? He said, he'll help us their life.

00:12:40--> 00:13:00

Life becomes it literally closes in and it collapses you when you don't have Allah with you. So it's there? How do we know that He exists? How do we know? What are his What are additional signs of his existence and so on? Okay, let's move on. barriers between speaking, you and I,

00:13:02--> 00:13:03

from being in classrooms like this.

00:13:05--> 00:13:20

First, I think is very obvious. Right? People, those two situations are totally different. busy lives. Even if you're not married, you might have extremely busy lives, just stuff to do. I don't care what it is just the can't organize yourself.

00:13:21--> 00:13:29

Islam, getting to an evening class, as long as I can fit that convenient Islamic stuff.

00:13:30--> 00:13:41

Prayer is good, just all over the place. talk to you about that in a minute. lifestyle doesn't accommodate this type of knowledge. Okay, so before we get that there are valid excuses.

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

Are you serious?

00:13:45--> 00:13:53

You You wouldn't accept when somebody has got like a busy day, I'm getting a migraine, just thinking about what a day looks like for you. So I'm not even gonna go there.

00:13:56--> 00:13:57

You know, what's amazing about it.

00:13:59--> 00:14:15

We have no choice. This is one of those things, and there are very few of them in in our team, that we don't get to compromise. We don't get to work men in the world. He ran a corporation. And he never made time to go see the doctor.

00:14:16--> 00:14:29

Okay. About 10 years they do the blood test. They everything every test you can imagine just to get the records up to date. They find out there are traces of cancer in you had time to do that.

00:14:30--> 00:14:35

How did he he never missed an appointment. He went for every single treatment. How did you do it?

00:14:38--> 00:14:43

In a culture in this world, where this stuff is not priority.

00:14:45--> 00:14:51

Despite the explosion of Islamic knowledge, not just one, hundreds will show up.

00:14:52--> 00:15:00

And that's where we're at. That's just the online. Forget about all of this that you see around you. One of my professors

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

said, you know, the students who want to do master programs and PhD, you have to write obviously your thesis, right? He said that we have run out of new master PhD students to critique and write about those thesis that they have sitting on their shelves. So recycle the same topic. And it sounds pretty insane when you consider and think about

00:15:23--> 00:15:37

that much knowledge is out there. And all of us are still like this. That's really sure. I mean, I know that total cool, you're supposed to stay there for 10 seconds? Or is it more? Is it less, I still get questions like that from adults.

00:15:38--> 00:15:48

Now look, at the third life style doesn't accommodate this type of knowledge. Have you seen this before, where if I, or myself or another teacher, we scribe.

00:15:50--> 00:16:02

And by the way, everyone who studies the subject of music knows very well that scholars differ on this. But that's not my call of them, because they're all messed up. And these are my proofs did it.

00:16:04--> 00:16:05

And you go out of here,

00:16:06--> 00:16:10

any problem is your son's a DJ, I've got copies of those in your car.

00:16:11--> 00:16:24

And it's one of those situations where you don't turn off the radio when you turn off the car. So as soon as you turn it on, or through this, this knowledge, it doesn't fit into your lifestyle or culture.

00:16:25--> 00:16:29

And that's a huge, huge barrier between it won't

00:16:30--> 00:16:35

you know what transformed you? Does anybody know what it is? What's the secret to transformation?

00:16:38--> 00:16:48

Have you heard a verse that sounds like this, in the law, hello, you heard or maybe Tom had a euro, maybe unforeseen online never changes the state of a people until they begin to inspect.

00:16:49--> 00:17:32

And you have 1000, you probably have a million examples of this. You could pray every day, five times a day, and the guy will still have times a day and he's in February, doing it all, why his intention is corrupt, his actions are pure, they look pure, a point where their footprints sunk into the mud. Meaning they stood into hedges so long for so many years that their footprints embedded the ground, your intentions, it's the quality. So my point for the third bullet is very simple. If you have a certain lifestyle, and you don't want anyone in this classroom to ever see, or to know,

00:17:34--> 00:17:44

then just keep in mind that, you know, if you don't try to change or alter some of those habits,

00:17:45--> 00:18:09

this knowledge will never end remove that awful picture of whatever it is, and say, Okay, I don't want to see this anymore. You are the one that will have to set the other hand, look what it exposed the gateway to unqualified teachers, so called checks and instructors, there's lots of them. They were just in it for the money. Does that make sense?

00:18:10--> 00:18:49

Like, fourth is explosion of information and accessibility carries its flaws. It has its weakness, you know, on the one hand, it's amazing, but on the other, they were just in it for the fame. They were just in it because Okay, they must have attended about 60 different classes. And so felt that to teach that subject. You might have learned a little bit here and there. So I'll give you an example. You know, some young people, young brothers, they come to me and they said they want to be a hot tip. Right? The one different organizations. I've attended a class like 10 o'clock every evening, I studied the Quran and they memorized it. So you have all of them. Okay, this could you

00:18:49--> 00:18:56

explain this problem? I'm going through this stress. Can you tell me what Islam says? What? Are you prepared to answer all of that? Now, I just want to give a hotbed.

00:18:58--> 00:19:42

Just go ahead. Okay, what's the ruling on blah blah, blah, blah, blah. Well, I heard a long time ago from the Shaker Heights on YouTube. You know, Rahim Allah, you can go on YouTube, another student or a sister or whatever. Salaam Alaikum. Shay it's like * they'll go ahead ask your question whether my shape or not is irrelevant to sponsibility factor. No one is really talking much about you know, we studied for at least 10 years so that we can give one Hello hard to sell them alone will ask me about every heart I spoke to. And if I spoke to each of those hearts in with with a sincere intention. And whatever the of seeking knowledge is is tough to find. The industry of Islamic

00:19:42--> 00:19:50

knowledge has been highly sensationalized. We've we've already chatted about the fame, the titles and so on. Definitely try it on.

00:19:51--> 00:19:52

Sort of

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

but you're right.

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

Okay, so company, just as I've met enough Muslims

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

Over the years that love to blame shaitan for everything,

00:20:03--> 00:20:04


00:20:05--> 00:20:28

And just that's just not the case. It look real attractive. You were the one that decided to take the step in. So what does he say? He says the worst thing I would ever want him in. And he will actually say to them, all I did was just show you stuff. I tempted you. I made her own.

00:20:29--> 00:20:41

What a guy, you know, all this time, I thought you were really the reason and now you just left me hanging. And I have to go deal with all of this or Candide hand. Anybody want to add one more?

00:20:42--> 00:20:44

Yeah. Oh my god.

00:20:46--> 00:21:08

You know, I teach the Wednesday, so tough for us high schoolers to get our act together and to stay focused and all of that stuff. And I just told him, I said, it's not because you guys schoolers talk, put aside all of the immaturity and silliness for a minute. These high school students really know how to think they're talking about subjects that you and I would never talk about when it comes to mental mint in high school.

00:21:09--> 00:21:13

And now, I said your biggest enemy is your laziness.

00:21:15--> 00:21:28

You just can't push yourself to get things done. You want protect me from being counted as those who are lazy. It's okay to have moments when you're lazy. I'm lazy all the time with different things. But at the end of the day, didn't.

00:21:29--> 00:21:36

Okay, this is me as well. I also sit with a teacher. So a lot of this was for me to

00:21:38--> 00:22:23

holla at you. So for what? For what lesson, right? Hello sir means to separate something that's really important and valuable or something. So you put it in a corner where the kids don't bump into it and things like that. That attitude those actions are worthless, so you take people who are specified security. What we're saying to you is when you sit in rooms like this or in situations like this, it's not our voice alone that you hear to a better person overall. So sincerity most important one quote and I'll move on Have you heard of the the name mmm is so hurry, Rahim Allah, it was said that email is zodia Rahim Allah had reached the level of Bahati. Okay, so he was profound

00:22:23--> 00:22:29

in his knowledge with respect to Hadeeth. He made a statement that control of it

00:22:31--> 00:22:41

25 years, I keep battling that my intention stays on track and I still can't get it to stay there. And he has trouble keeping his intention straight. Why?

00:22:42--> 00:22:51

This is a continuous, endless battle for us to all gather your intention and your heart to be in places like this.

00:22:52--> 00:22:58

We ask Allah to to give us the easiest way that we can achieve that it was not even mean.

00:23:01--> 00:23:04

You we hear this all the time? What does it mean? Explain it to me.

00:23:07--> 00:23:12

Something you say and it just goes away? Like, how do you purify your heart?

00:23:17--> 00:23:19

cycle the process this way?

00:23:20--> 00:23:24

Okay, make it simpler. So all of us are on exhibit.

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

How do you do that?

00:23:30--> 00:23:31


00:23:33--> 00:23:49

with every thought, you have a counter thought. And so you can if I say always the right thing, but I still got trouble in my heart. I just got I still don't like her. But they sound really cool. Give her Coachella got a hater.

00:23:50--> 00:23:51

How do I get out of that?

00:23:55--> 00:23:57

alter the way you think.

00:23:59--> 00:24:02

Okay, what do I do? Make it more practical?

00:24:05--> 00:24:06

Do you see the dilemma here?

00:24:08--> 00:24:10

This is what I live for.

00:24:11--> 00:24:20

This is the thing that I've tried my best to be different from other instructors like I will never say given the benefit of the doubt.

00:24:27--> 00:24:37

Step by step how you tell someone who knows nothing or basic stuff about the DNA, you need to keep your heart clean. You need to purify your heart.

00:24:38--> 00:24:54

And so when that person listens to you, they're not just going to listen to an amazing hopper. But they're actually going to be like, Oh my god, I can actually do that. That's all I have to do. Make it so make it easy for me. Tell me one more time. How do I purify my heart

00:24:55--> 00:24:57

in Syria and taqwa good

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

remembrance of Allah

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Anything else?

00:25:04--> 00:25:06

protection doors, anything else?

00:25:10--> 00:25:10


00:25:18--> 00:25:23

even tell some adults, they're like, oh, okay, just like my sister. It's like,

00:25:24--> 00:26:09

it's too much for me. She's a doctor, by the way. So does that all make sense? Right and 14 chapters? Do you know why? I know because a lot wanted it that way. But you know what some rlms said the wisdom behind that why it's not one set. This is also an indirect psychology for you and is human beings, that in our life when it comes to staying of life, until your multi ama is 140 chapters, that's it. And some of those chapters are two lines. Do you know why? Some of the elimination point, then the Tuc work comes in the righteous deeds come in all of those things. You know why? why I say that, by the way, not me. It's important. This is how Allah says the care. Yeah,

00:26:09--> 00:26:24

you will Athena me know. People will be men. or quarter Allah. remember Allah, what? The Quran? You're missing something. One. Remember, it's like Alhamdulillah that's the

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

one single ability to do that. Yeah, more or less. Yeah, we can all say one word of Vicar or do one good action.

00:26:35--> 00:26:37

So your starting point,

00:26:38--> 00:27:07

coming from the word nesea. The one who forgets our title as a creation is gotta go do this thing. We always need reminders. Yeah, the kid that's the reminder for the heart. That's the thing that gets the heart up and running again. It's gonna double Lucha the Quran kathira keep remembering me. And you've got to do this all the time. So you got to you know, we always have put in our calendars. Okay, I gotta go, I got this appointment.

00:27:09--> 00:27:10

Before all the Quran

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

and that's the thing, the Quran,

00:27:15--> 00:27:38

it's always the same. They'll memorize the whole, the whole core end. And still it doesn't move them. I'm going to come back to this point in a minute. Number three, purify yourselves from sins, not just for the sake of being a student of Allah, but just for your own sake, as a Muslim. Learn how to implement change and the betterment of others. So meaning is like a candle.

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

It's like a candle. On the one hand, when you light a candle in a dark room, everyone's able to see where they're going. But on then, but still in the same habits that children probably do. He still can get a get out of any bad into bad habits or sins or mistakes Am I involved in so the process I sell them warn students of knowledge, you are supposed to be the leader, with the least amount of sending plus the seriousness of carrying this knowledge. Only one sentence I want to share with you. Have you heard this verse before? Low ends and has a quarter and are eligible, it'll crush and crumble into dust. Why men hatia Tila because the mountain got afraid of Allah, his words.

00:28:28--> 00:29:15

But you and I can memorize the whole thing. Why is it that there are still people who memorize and learn the so when it comes to Allah is knowledge. Really try to internalize how serious this is because this knowledge destroyed mountain seek is just short. I just want to see who you are. All ln torani. You're not going to see me. Well. I can invoke illegible look over at that mountain for in a stuntin Giada who des kawahara moussaka as soon as he did that to the mountain, the mountain crushed into dust and Moosa fainted and fell to the ground area. Just to give you really an idea of, of how blessed we are to be here and do this.

00:29:16--> 00:30:00

develop those three words is actually the three ways that scholars divide their days of how they study. Getting into a routine is tough, you're retired, you've worked and you've done so much, you just kind of want to kick back. Well, we make. I want to make this really easy for you. formation is vacuumed in. Number two, the afternoon is used for review. don't learn anything new, you just focus on so the evening which is what when we are here we are we're sticking to that formula, because when we're here, we're discovering that they actually got it from the Prophet alayhi salatu was

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

To them This was his habit and companions habits, process and a master fader would sit when he finished leading the prayer Turner, tell me your dreams, would you guys dream? One companion said I saw this, I saw that in a process, some would interpret it for them. Other times he would sit there and he would remind him of an ad if they needed anything. When it came too close to the afternoon, he take a short rest. But that was also the time where by EF core and circles, so they were starting to review lots of core and was being done after us. Oh, by the way, if you have the time f terrassa. I'm after all, sir, onwards.

00:30:39--> 00:31:08

I don't know. Even when we were in Medina, lots of the scholars in early May use to advise us don't lose after I was like, Really? It's really I don't know, I don't even know how to describe it. But I've met some incredible students who have achieved incredible things. What was there seek new topics, new issues, okay, this is what we're going to do tomorrow, this is going to change we're going to stop this habit. We're going to start this and then to lead on to the evening. So those that's just a quick formula and youth knowledge and influence.

00:31:11--> 00:31:41

For young people that's really easy to teach, I don't know, for more mature adults company, so they're able to say, Okay, yeah, you guys go out for dinner. I'm not I'm not going nowhere. Because you know that if you go they're eating like a burger and some fries under control. And maybe for the young people, probably not. Yeah, let's go eat after you was going to go to mall. You know, there's a cinema there want to watch a movie? And there's so it's easiest for me. Have you ever found yourself you started a class and halfway you kind of

00:31:42--> 00:31:43

dropped out?

00:31:44--> 00:32:02

That's the sad reality of pretty much as a matter of fact, even the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam had that too. started off with certain campaigns and certain didn't show up. They didn't come for what he or she and what what are they doing? Call them out? So my point is this that

00:32:03--> 00:32:20

it's it's great to see all of you here. comfortable with one another. I don't know you all know your lives, what ends up taking more of your time. But what I want to plead to all of you, I want to get right to the end. And don't let anything get in the way.

00:32:21--> 00:32:22

That's what I did.

00:32:23--> 00:32:37

You might think it's more fun teaching. And then being in that seat. So you all decide and figure out how your schedules can keep you here for North York.

00:32:38--> 00:32:41

Okay, anybody live in Vaughan Maple area?

00:32:44--> 00:32:53

Those who live outside of Scarborough, can I just just share, I'm always the one that lives the farthest. Right? I live next to Wonderland in Vaughan.

00:32:54--> 00:32:56

Right? So and let me tell you,

00:32:57--> 00:33:01

I'm just one of those weird drivers that I love when it's terrible out there.

00:33:03--> 00:33:20

I find it's kind of therapeutic when you're just like, oh my god, I'm driving 30. So I will be here you will have that for me in sha Allah. So please really take the time when you leave this evening in sha Allah tala to ensure that the rest of the qualified teachers, which we've quickly chat about, so

00:33:22--> 00:33:24

the only thing I want to add to this is this.

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

You know, I, and don't be afraid to ask teachers this, you know, can you tell me a little bit about where you studied or why you chose to teach this subject. You know, don't be afraid to do that, especially without, I think this is the fifth year now. But I've been part of this institute since before it was built. Right. So everybody here knows me and my family. So it's a subject that I actually specialized in. So what I did is

00:33:52--> 00:34:34

I decided that I was going to study very different from other students. So I had an afternoon of just heading youth studies. And that's where I was able to sit with a PhD student who was from NEC, I read it to him from beginning to end. So that's what I did for for a little while. Then. The late evening is when I devoted my time to I don't feel that I'm qualified to do it anyway. I can teach basic fit, but that's about it. So that's where I am. Here's the thing, why am I teaching core and and sort of the needs. So I've gone through a bunch of tough CEUs and the one that I'm going through with you guys, is actually I brought the book so you could

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

you could see volumes. Okay, so Alhamdulillah I'm on volume six with you guys, right? Start from Volume One, and we're on volume six. So this one certainly saturated the entire course from this book is called a Jeremy Oh, camel color n by emammal Porter B. It is 25 times as much of it as i can tell you why this

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

This is the Tafseer that I love the most that I depend on the most if you ever hear me translate or

00:35:07--> 00:35:48

after every verse, he had something called messa different subjects or scenarios that he extracted up your mind and starts thinking about that verse in ways no one else can teach you. I wish that inshallah You know, this could be translated. I don't know how many volumes, it'll spec. So what are we talking about men? Remember, we're talking generally here across the board. No one in particular, what are we talking about? Usually, if you disagree with your teacher, I've been through this, you can talk to me afterwards. Number two, to respect your teachers. So there's a couple things. One of the greatest shame in students of knowledge is the lack of reason. This is not the etiquettes of a

00:35:48--> 00:35:58

student. As a matter of fact, Mr. Chef era himolla used to have this a lot where people used to just get up and bark at him, top of their voice Adam in front of everyone.

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

And says, Are you done? Okay, so Dominic,

00:36:04--> 00:36:12

and he'll just leave them. So one day one of his students asked him, Why do you do that? Why don't you talk back or say something? He said,

00:36:14--> 00:36:26

I leave them so that they, so I leave them and he calls that attitude stupidity, until they Calm down, and they're ready to come and have a conversation in a civilized manner.

00:36:28--> 00:36:54

hamdulillah I can count the amount of times this something like that has ever happened when he let your hand and most of you if not all of you here arms than the other way around. So I think we don't really have to spend much time on that anyway. If you disagree, or you don't understand, or you discover any weeks out of that disagreement, usually, unfortunately, oh, my God, I can't believe they actually think that that's how that I'm never talking to them again.

00:36:56--> 00:37:15

You know, I'm not spawn and how they disagree. If you've ever disagreed with somebody, something to do with the dean, just think about what that what what manifests even going to the masjid no more, I'd only want to pray behind him anymore. Because of maybe one disagreement. You know, right now in the city.

00:37:18--> 00:37:32

They don't do anything with each other, except drain the community of millions of dollars to support the kit, appearance and presence, you probably will might think, like, come on, dude, what do you what are you saying?

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

One of dozen students, we got invited to his house, one of our friends had a pair of shoes on. And the heel was just a bit high after you know, you know, one of the most brilliant human beings in this world, we have a chance to sit and talk with him and get all the questions answered.

00:37:54--> 00:38:01

Then we see the chef and my guests. This is your hook, I have to serve you said okay.

00:38:03--> 00:38:19

He just went to pour some juice, right? All of a sudden we. And then when he comes back, he comes back with all the juice in his hand. And then he he holds a heel in his hand. And he's like, Who does this belong to? A guy out either, right? So we all sit there

00:38:20--> 00:38:29

and guess who ratted him out? Yours Truly. So I said, ference is an example for the rest of the world.

00:38:30--> 00:38:35

Everything you choose to wear and how you conduct yourself is a call to Alice Dean.

00:38:37--> 00:38:39

Where's the chef going with this?

00:38:40--> 00:38:43

And then he came up to the brother and he pulled him in. He said, Look,

00:38:44--> 00:38:46

you know, you're

00:38:47--> 00:39:13

so he said the reason why I did this. And he just said to him, he says, Don't go higher than this. Right? be modest, deep, to say the least, that students of knowledge are very simple individuals. They live very simple. And they're always a good example, on a less behalf that this is a servant that's devoted him or herself. All they care about is their hygiene.

00:39:14--> 00:39:36

How they talk to people. So he's definitely done well. He was our professor. I think he taught us for about three years. And he says I own only three of these. So we asked them why feser changed his clothing at least like three times a day. That's how beautiful it was so perfect and so clean. My point is this our lesson from this particular

00:39:37--> 00:39:47

Imam Abu hanifa used to carry a cloth with him. So every time he walked around, students used to see him bend down and keep wiping his Legos. This is part of my Amen.

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

And so I do this, it's just as important as me sitting in a classroom. So I leave that to you. How that should resonate. Okay, it's off. Patience concerning him.

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

His or her, her faults, their humor, which you talked about, and to offer your teacher number four to offer your teacher. Because you're, I can tell you your dynamics your teacher makes to offer his his or her students. It's part of the Veneto judge of the loved one.

00:40:19--> 00:40:47

When I would hear a Hadeeth, from a person, for the rest of my life, I would try and serve them, inspire them. When they walk out of your room, you're, they're out of your control. So teachers counter that, by praying for their students. Sure of compassion companions had for their teachers. He heard one had teeth and took it upon himself to be a servant to eternally grateful to you.

00:40:48--> 00:41:01

And that's how we should teach. Sorry, treat people who encourage and teach us how to redeem. That's not it up here, beard fix dirty job, what's wrong with you. That's not how I used to tie it for you, when you were here.

00:41:02--> 00:41:33

They're still giving you some advice, and you internalize him or her appropriately, which we've already talked about. Basically, this fifth point, the author, highlights that if your teacher carries a certain whatever, by the way, I don't have any of those. I'm just Muslim, brother, Muslim, if you like, of status, kind of the title that I like using just teacher, it's really up to you. So with that being said, We ask Allah to bless our efforts alone, I mean,

00:41:35--> 00:42:09

I do have, so once you registered for this class, you'll have access to the booklet the entire sorta, and all of the notes are there. It's up to you if you want to print it and bring it or you want to like it. And that's one of them. I still write handwrite all of my notes, I don't type nothing. Because I have students that helped me with that. So be prepared, progressives will have Asia in Asia in between the the class and we'll break accordingly. Right. Last but not least, this class, so we will be going very close to Ramadan.

00:42:11--> 00:42:17

I don't anticipate finishing the entire sort of then. But getting very close. Is that right?

00:42:20--> 00:42:22

Does anybody have any questions about anything?

00:42:23--> 00:42:25

Be honest, guys. Like what do you think? I mean?

00:42:28--> 00:42:29


00:42:34--> 00:43:06

Okay. Usually what I do when I, before I start the classes, I asked a bunch of questions from the previous class, just to make sure that you know, we're all on the same page. Is there anything and I don't want to just be your teacher, I'm your brother in faith. So feel free to meet me talk to me ask me stuff. My email is out there. It's online, most likely cons to relationship at the end of the day, for the sake of Allah, we're all going the exact same place. And we're all hoping to get to the same place. So I'm on the same journey that all of you are

00:43:07--> 00:43:08


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

Oh, my God does.

00:43:33--> 00:43:35

Does anyone here not have a Facebook account?

00:43:37--> 00:43:49

To find our account is usually open as well. There's a whole bunch of other classes that are also being offered. I just want to tell you about them. Tuesday's convention and he looks at the meaning of it. I really feel class as well.

00:43:51--> 00:44:03

And Thursdays, yeah. Tomorrow, in sha Allah, Allah the night, there is another feature, which is the vocabulary. And he goes through every single word is finished. And

00:44:04--> 00:44:08

he looks at how many times has been clocked about the conditions of the Shahada on

00:44:09--> 00:44:10

Tuesday nights.

00:44:12--> 00:44:15

There's also a brand new class conversational Arabic

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

Arabic countries

00:44:21--> 00:44:23

and that's being taught by who.

00:44:26--> 00:44:43

behind the screen, he, he was once he was once an Imam, as well half of the Quran Mashallah. So, my point is, is that you can benefit when al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen you're welcome to to to leave now. When al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. You're welcome to to leave now.
