So we continue with the man we know is 40 Hadith we're at the conclusion of Hadith number two, where the angel jabril is asking the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Bernie and Bernie and in essence, they informed me about your son. So the first thing to notice over here is, is this concept of your son actually something known as the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu? Or is it something that is unknown to the Sahaba and as is seen throughout this Hadith, the general meaning of these concepts was already known. So when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam was asked about Islam, they already knew the general meaning of Islam. When he's asked about a man, we already
knew the general meaning of a man. And now he's being asked about the asset. And again, the same concept applies, we already had a general understanding of what the term actually means. Now, from a linguistic perspective, the term actually means two things, it actually means two things. Number one, to show an act of kindness or goodness to someone. So this is known as a sun. So Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells us in the Quran, why sin come and Allahu illich and show kindness to the people just like Allah subhanho wa Taala shown kindness to you, just like Allah subhanaw taala showed kindness to you, then the second meaning of the sun, it means to do something proficiently and it
means something to do something with excellence. And this is the actual meaning that is being portrayed. And it's very hard it is at second meaning to do something proficiently and to do something with excellence. Now, how did the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually go on to explain this concept, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam goes on to explain, it is that you should serve a law, as though you could see him it is to serve a law as though you could see him and even though you cannot see him know that he sees you know, that he sees you. This is how the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam conveyed to this concept. Now, there are quite a
few points that need to be explained over here. Number one, is that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is explaining the concept of motivation, and how each and every individual he will need a motivation behind the act that he does. And for the believer, the highest type of motivation and the best type of motivation he will ever receive is the motivation that Allah subhanaw taala is watching him or that he can see Allah subhanho wa Taala or that he can see Allah subhanaw taala and this is the highest type of motivation and what the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is indirectly implying over here is that if you want to see the Muslim excel at his peak, if
you want to see a believer excel at his peak, that is when he is most cognitive of Allah subhanho wa Taala that is when he is most cognitive of Allah subhanho wa Taala realizing that Allah subhana wa tada is watching, hearing and notice each and every single thing that he feels, says and does, that is when you will see the believers excel at their peak, that is when you will see the believers excel at their peak. So that is point number one. That is when a person is the most motivated, how does he achieve that highest level of motivation when he is cognitive of Allah subhanho wa Taala? Number two, the second thing we want to understand from this section of the Hadith is are these two
concepts the same? Or are they one concept so the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying it is to worship Allah, as though you can see him? And even though you can't see him know that he sees you. And the scores have had these the different opinions over here, the first group of scholars, they said no, these are actually two different concepts, two different concepts. And the promoters have this opinion that they are two different concepts at the head of them will have that knowledge. And
they said that there are actually two different concepts. Now what are the two different concepts that they're referring to? The first concept that they're referring to is what is known as Alma Shahada, what is known as mu Shahada where one is able to see Allah subhana wa tada one is able to see Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when they talk about seeing Allah subhana wa Tada, this is not seeing Allah subhanaw taala physically, but this is one being cognitive with his heart and one seeing the signs of Allah. Hi
Allah all around him and this is something we'll explain in our third point with Allah He tada that is one able to see Allah subhanho wa Taala in this world or not and what is the difference of opinion on that? So what they're talking about Allah Shahada is that this is the highest level and individual can ever reach in his Islam, it is the highest level that he can ever reach, that he sees the size of Allah subhanho wa Taala all around him, and that he is always cognitive of Allah subhana wa Tada. Now, they set some sort of criterion for this, that how does an individual know when he is at a level of mu Shahada? When is When does he know that he's reached this highest level, they said
that two things are found inside the slave of Allah subhanaw taala at that time, number one, is that he will genuinely do things out of love, he will generally do things out of love. So it's no longer out of fear anymore, it is no longer out of fear, but rather it is done out of love. And number two, the second thing they mentioned is that a bird with love itself actually becomes enjoyable and pleasurable, that a by the window itself actually becomes enjoyable and pleasurable. And this is why you see the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being truthfully able to say, with joy that Cora tiny for Salah that the coolness of my eyes, meaning that when I am at most rest, and what
I enjoy the most, is when I'm in prayer when I am in prayer. So these are the two characteristics of Moshe, that is actually better now done out of love. And number two, he actually starts to enjoy the act of ibadah witness themselves. And this is my Shahada, that you're able to see the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala all around you, and that you're conscious that Allah subhanaw taala is watching, hearing and seeing everything that you do. Now, an important point about the Shahada over here is that this is a level that one cannot always stay at, that this is something that we're the amount of an individual will fluctuate, it will reach that point, and then it has to come down. It is not
physically possible that an individual will stay at that time at that point, at all times when an individual becomes void of sin when an individual becomes void of sin. So this is something very important to understand that last week when we were talking about the fluctuation of a man, this is the highest point of a man that he will reach that he is worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala, as though he can see him as though he can see him. Now to understand the true value of this concept. As believers, we will only understand its worth in the hereafter we will only understand its worth in the Hereafter, when we realize that the greatest blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon us is the
fact that we get to see Allah subhanho wa Taala is the fact that we get to see Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that is when we will only truly become cognitive of this matter when we see Allah subhanho wa Taala then according to the same group of scholars have no hijab and Dora job, they said that the second level that an individual actually achieves and attains it is what is known as a maraca. what is known as a maraca, realizing that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching and monitoring, and you know, having written down every single thing that you do, say hear and feel, and this is known as a maraca, this is when an individual, he realizes that he does not see Allah subhanho wa Taala. But
then he also realizes that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows every single thing that he does as well. And this is known as a maraca. And they say that the signs of this level are also to number one, the general drive behind a binder is fear, the general drive behind a binder is fear that he will start doing a lot of actions with a high quality of worship, but the main emotion behind it is going to be driven by fear. And then number two, unlike number one, where there will be very, very few people that attain such a level, this level will actually have a lot of people that are able to attain it, that the man will fluctuate regularly to this level, and come down as well. It will regularly Excel
to this level and come down as well. So there will be more people that achieve this level, in contrast to the first one in contrast to the first one. Now talking about a maraca. This is also something that our predecessors used to practice themselves. A lot of Kava is something that used to practice themselves, taking their own selves to account for the things that you used to do. So if you look inside Sierra Nevada under the biography of unfolded lived in a yacht in Miami that had been narrated for who says, and from some of the predecessors were those that were able to count their own words, those that were able to count their own words. This was the statement of unfilled
idebenone out emammal Rahim Allah He comments on the statement by saying that this is none other than for the love of himself, that fidelity of the other speaking about himself that he was able
to count the words that he spoke, he was able to count the words that he spoke, and SubhanAllah. If you know I want everyone to try this one day, try to just spend like a quarter of a day counting the amount of words that you speak. Just try to count the words that you speak the average man, He will speak somewhere between 12 to 15,000 words per day. That's for the whole day. And the average woman she will speak somewhere between 21 to 25,000 words per day. Now this is not something to laugh at. This is the way that Allah subhanaw taala creativeness that we express our emotions differently, but it's a reality. Now, can you imagine, for each day that you're alive, this is how many words you're
averaging. And then you can imagine that on the Day of Judgment, if Allah subhanaw taala wants to make our reckoning very difficult. He holds the slave accountable for each and every single word that he says. And that is when you can see that someone's reckoning literally could take years, an individual that was negligent of his Salah, Allah subhanaw taala wants to hold into account that he will hold him account to each and every word, and that is when it can take years. So this concept of Morocco was something that the predecessors used to practice themselves, that each day you know, keep a list of how many good deeds you're doing, how many sins you committed, how many words you're
speaking. And this is when the concept of a lot of cover actually comes into play, that the slave starts to realize Subhanallah every single thing that I say and do is actually being written down. And more importantly, it's being witnessed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that is the effect that Morocco actually has. And that is why it is so driven by fear. Because he starts to realize that one day, he is going to stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he will have to justify every single thing that he saw that he ate, that he did that he heard, and that he wrote down, all of this has been documented so that he can be held accountable for it. And that is when the slave starts to
worship Allah subhanho wa Taala out of fear when it starts to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala out of fear. So that was the opinion of all half of the knowledge and half of them. They said that these two terms are actually two different terms that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is referring to, then you get a second camp, and the second camp is headed by Imam and Norway is headed by Mr. manoli. And the second camp says that no, they're referring to the exact same thing, they're referring to the exact same thing. And that is the concept of unmoral. Cover. That is the concept of a maraca. And they actually give an example the second camp actually gives an example.
They say, imagine that servants gather in front of a kink, they gather in front of a kink? What is it that will keep the servants obedient and respectful towards the kink? Is it that they are able to see the kink? Or is it that the kink is able to see them, and they say that the slave should ponder this. So you ponder it for a little while, the conclusion that they come to is that they are respectful, and they are obedient to the kink, because the king is able to see them. And it has nothing to do with the fact that they can see the kink. And they go on to prove this even further. They see that take the example of a blind individual. Take the example of a blind individual, this
individual can never see the kink. But does this prevent him from showing obedience? And from being respectful? No, it doesn't. Because even though he is unable to see he is recognizes the fact that the king is able to see him that the king is able to see him. So the second cam, which is headed by amendment, no, we they said no, that this whole concept of a lesson is referring to a maraca that Allah subhanho wa Taala is watching the slaves. And that is what makes them fearful and obedient. What that is, is what makes them fearful and obedient. And in all honesty, if you were to look at this example, this example is very deficient. This example is very deficient, because they give a
very real life example. And for Allah subhanho wa Taala is the highest example in our concept of seeing Allah subhanho wa Taala. We're not talking about physically seeing Allah subhanho wa Taala whereas they're making clear on something which is physically being seen. So the example is very weak and Allah Subhana Allah knows best, but opinion number one is actually stronger opinion number one is actually stronger. The third point related to this section of the Hadith is that here is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually telling us that we can see Allah subhanho wa Taala in this life, because the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam clearly says, it is
to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala as though you can see him. So can we extract from this part of the Hadith that we can see Allah subhanaw taala in this life? And the answer to that is no, because the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam makes it very, very clear in the second part of the Hadith, that even though you cannot see him, know that he sees you even though you cannot see him know that you know that he sees you. And this is very clear in the Quran as well. When Allah subhanaw taala tells musante salaam lento Ronnie that you will never see me again.
This life and the only time the people will get to see Allah subhanho wa Taala physically is in the hereafter that the slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala will get to see Allah subhanho wa Taala physically in the hereafter. So those heretical groups that try to prove that one can see Allah subhanho wa Taala. Through this Hadith, we'll use the first part of the Hadith ignoring the second part, whereas an individual who is, you know, pure upon his understanding of Islam will take the text as a whole will take the text as a whole, and not just take parts of it. So, this is not a proof that one can see Allah subhanho wa Taala in this world. Now, what this leads into is a
secondary discussion is that even though one cannot see Allah subhanaw taala physically in this world? Is it
that one can see Allah subhanho wa Taala with his heart? Is it possible that Allah subhanaw taala can be seen through an individual's heart. And this goes into the linguistics of the Arabic language, when you look at the word rokeya. When you look at the word raw, which is used to see, you'll notice that law can actually be one can be two types of seeing, Aronian, Colombia and aronia and basilea, that this is the viewing or witnessing with the heart and the reviewing and witnessing of the eyes. So with the eyes, it is not possible. But now what is being argued over here is that can Allah subhanho wa Taala be seen with the heart. And this is something that, you know, is a very
controversial topic and goes into a lot of detail. And its fruits are very, very little, its fruits are very, very little. So we're not going to go into too much detail. But we should know that there is a difference of opinion on this matter. And the defining line is that a person should aim for a son at all times, should aim for a son at all times, that you aim for a maraca and you aim for Allah Shahada, and that you excel in all things. And for me, I think this is like, in my personal opinion, the dividing line between our failure and our success, that we're humbled as Muslims, we're able to do lots of projects, we have a lot of things going on, we're building schools, we're building
massages, you know, we're taking care of the needy and the poor, we're fasting, we're breaking people's fats, all things, a whole bunch of things are happening on hamdulillah. But what is the defining line between our success and our failure is this concept of a sun that we fail to prepare, and we fail to give it its due time, and we want results right away. And when you look at the concept of a sun, you'll notice that the way the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam was taught to your son was over a very long period of time, that revelation took 23 years to be completed. And the reason why it took so long is because change, it takes time. It doesn't happen overnight. And I
believe that this defining factor that if we were to focus on this, that each day, just look at yourself, how are you becoming a better individual? This before you go to bed? Ask yourself this question, how did I become a better quite a better person today? You know, what is something new that I learned today? And if someone lives with this ambition, Bismillah hits Allah, you will notice change in that person's life. But a person that does not ask this question, how did I become a better person today, he will live his life, just like the average person not having any focus not having any direction. So this concept of the Sun is actually the driving force between success and
failure. And an individual that wants to be successful. Let him in for a second, let him do good towards other people at the highest level of excellence. And when the lights honor, he will be successful, but an individual that does not strive and aim for a son, then this person, he may feel he may pass, but he'll be somewhere in between, at best, you will be mediocre, you will not excel at that time, you will not excel at that time. So now let's go on to the next part. Let us go on to the next part. He said, inform me about the hour inform me about the hour.
Now green over here is asking the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the hour. And what's interesting about this part is that in contrast to the rest of the Hadith, gibreel has a different intention behind asking this question jabril has a different intention behind asking this question. So what was the intention of gibreel? in asking the previous questions? Can anyone tell me think about it a little? What was his intention behind asking the previous questions? Go ahead.
Excellent. It is to teach the Sahaba it is to teach the Sahaba so the Sahaba, the Allahu anhu. They have a general understanding of these concepts, but they don't know the specifics. So gibreel is coming to ask these questions, so that the specifics may be taught to them. Now, when gibreel is asking this question, when is the hour his intention completely changes? And the intention behind this question now is to avoid to make the people avoid asking this question any further.
As you can see throughout the state of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And in the Koran, the Bedouins always used to come to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and asked him matassa that when is the sign? When is the day of judgment? When is the day of judgment? So through their frequent Li asking this question gibreel comes to ask this question now so that he won't ask this question anymore. Because jabril knows that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not have knowledge of this, and him being the Messenger of Allah, He will make it very clear to gibreel. And to all the people listening, that I do not know when the hour is that I do not know
when the hour is. And then it moves on to the second part, that he wants to educate them about something that is more important, something that is more important. And that is an individual preparing himself for his personal hour, an individual preparing himself for his personal hour. And before we continue, I just want to backtrack a little bit I forgot to mention one Hadith, which is what is the effect of that? Yes, and has what is the effect that Assange has on an individual? And Sahil Bukhari there is an error. There is a narration that Allah subhana wa Tada. He hears his slave sings to Pinilla and hamdulillah and Allahu Akbar while they are traveling on the roads. So let's
find out what other he sends down the angels and he is more knowledgeable of this. He sends down the angels and he asked them, go and see what my slaves are doing. The angels come back and report to Allah subhanho wa Taala that there is there saying Subhana Allah Alhamdulillah and Allahu Akbar and they are praising you. Then Allah subhanaw taala asked them, can my slave see me that they're praising me while they are traveling? And the angels respond? No, they cannot see you. Then Allah subhanaw taala asks them, and how would they be if they were able to see me? How would they be if they were able to see me? They said, Oh Allah, they would strive even harder in worshiping you they
would strive even harder in worshiping you. So two lessons are brought from this hadith that are very, very, very apparent that number one, it is a very good attribute to startup that when an individual is traveling, he frequents the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala by saying Subhana, Allah hamdulillah and Allahu Akbar. So while you're on the road, you're stuck at a red light, you're going on a long journey and there's just silence in the car, then visit yourself with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Number two, Allah subhanho wa Taala makes it very, very clear the effect that it would have, if the slaves of Allah subhanaw taala were able to see Allah
subhanaw taala and that is that they would strive even harder to worship Allah subhana wa Tada. Now let's get back to the signs of the Day of Judgment, that jabril he asked this question so that the Sahaba will stop asking the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when is the day of judgment, when is the day of judgment and the Messenger of Allah so soon as you will come to see, he makes it very, very clear about his knowledge. But what is important over here is that jabril is indirectly teaching a very, very important lesson, that one the Day of Judgment is going to take place is absolutely irrelevant. It can happen in our lifetime. It cannot happen in our lifetime,
when it happens is absolutely irrelevant. But what is important is that when is our individual our when is our individual our meaning, when will each individual die? And what has he prepared for it? What has he prepared for it? And you see this in two separate incidents, isn't it number one, the Bedouin man comes to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he says you're a solo one is the day of judgment. And he says, that do not worry about the Day of Judgment but worry about this young boy for if he is to get older than your personal our would have come that you're sad to call that your personal our as a group, and would have come meaning that you guys would have gotten
old and you guys would have died and are being ready or prepared to being questioned in the grave and why Allah subhanho wa Taala. So make your personal preparation for it. And then the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam in the second Hadith makes it completely explicit beyond a shadow of a doubt that a Bedouin man comes he asked, When is the our, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu and some clearly response women, that Allah that what have you prepared for it? The Don't worry about when the hour is, but worry about what have you prepared for the hour? What have you prepared for the hour and that is what the slave should always be conscious of, that when we are asked this question
and we study the size of the Day of Judgment, you know, what is the purpose behind it? It is to remind us that this is a reality that we are living Allah has given us these signs to remind us that truly without a shadow of a doubt, one day we will stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala and we will be questioned. So what have we prepared for that day? What have we prepared for that day? So now the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, he goes on to
say that the one that is questioned does not have more knowledgeable, they does not have more knowledge than the questioner.
The one that is questioned, does not have more knowledge than the questioner. And here in the different narrations, if you were to look at it, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't just respond with this statement, but in the narration of Bukhari, he actually recites the verse in Surah lokman where he mentions that only There are five types of knowledge that are exclusively with Allah subhanaw taala five types of knowledge that are exclusively with Allah subhana wa tada What are those five types of knowledge? Does anyone know?
Jazakallah head that was very good. I was expecting someone over here to answer but you did a good job Mashallah, fantastic. So number one that Allah subhanho wa Taala has knowledge of the day of judgment when it will take place he has the Messiah, when it will take place. Number two, is that Allah subhanho wa Taala has knowledge of what is in the wombs Allah subhanho wa Taala has knowledge of what is in the wombs. Number three, that Allah subhanho wa Taala has knowledge of when the rain will descend and when the rain will descend, number three and number four, Allah subhanho wa Taala has knowledge what will be the risk of the slave that what when and where he will get his risk that
knowledge is with Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. And number five, the fifth and last type of knowledge is that where will the slave die? Only Allah subhanho wa Taala knows that knowledge. So in the second narration, which is mentioned in Bukhari, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam recited the verse from Surah Lockman, that it is only Allah subhanaw taala that has knowledge of the Day of Judgment. Now a further point that is elucidated over here is how the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not have all knowledge, how the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not have all knowledge, for those of you who are familiar with the casita,
Bada, Bada, it is a very famous poem that is recited usually are in the multiple below Well, you know, celebrating the birth of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, from the verses of this poem is women are lumic Allah he was called me and that from your knowledge is the knowledge of the local muffled. And the column which wrote the local muffled meaning that from your knowledge is the knowledge of everything that exists. And obviously this is an exaggeration, in the praises of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, that is not allowed, that is not allowed, because here it is clearly shown that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not even have
knowledge of the Day of Judgment. And he also makes clear that those five specific types of knowledge are for Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, or for Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. Now, the Wise questioner will ask, what is the relationship between a son? And between this question being asked by Djibouti? And is the question I want to ask the audience? What is the relationship between Jubilee his previous question of what is your son with rebellions? Next question, well, what are the signs of the Day of Judgment? What are the signs of the Day of Judgment? Who can tell you what the relationship between those two things is?
And I'll take a nice water break and Chung. So let's go in order number one to go ahead.
Last day, here's
how to do nice
actions for these
two fears and loves both together.
if I understand you correctly, you're halfway there that but that's if I understood you correctly.
Who had Yeah, go ahead next.
to go off and then come back and see you. And we said back to was about wanting the last word is punishment, which was
you're like at the same position as he is. Go ahead.
Fantastic, what about it?
Okay, we're like halfway there now with Hamza law. Go ahead.
You're getting into, like Freemason stuff? No,
no, I understand where you're going. I understand where you're going. But that's pretty good. That's a point that I didn't think of at all, but you're very close. Now. To give you one last answer. Go ahead.
Not to get into it. Okay, that's a very good point. But that's not what I'm looking for. I saw many of you had your hand up. I'll give you a chance as well. Go ahead. You didn't have your hand up. You're okay. Okay. Do you want to take it call us go ahead. Last one, then.
Okay, so that is one angle of looking at the relationship, but that's not the angle I'm looking for. That's very good though. The angle that I'm looking for, we're not gonna take any more hands, we're gonna stay here all night. The angle that I am looking for is that if you look at the previous section, he says, tell me about the sun. He responds by saying it is to worship Allah subhanaw taala as though you can see him and even though you cannot see him know that he sees you. So when we were talking about how is an individual able to see Allah subhanaw taala what is the Shahada actually mean? Alma Shahada means that he can see the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala, all around him. And
from the signs that Allah subhanaw taala has created is the signs of you know, the alternation the day of the night, you know, a child being born, you know, that the rain coming down, these are all signs from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But a second category of signs that Allah subhanaw taala it has created are the signs of the Day of Judgment. So if you want to see the quarter of Allah subhanaw taala look at how the signs of the Day of Judgment are actually coming into the relationship between the abrines question of what is the sun leading into the signs of the Day of Judgment, then when people when we talk about seeing Allah subhana wa tada and being cognitive of Allah subhanho wa
Taala it is being cognitive that Allah has informed us in advance that these things will happen. And then actually looking out for the signs that wow, are these things actually taking place? Or not? Are these things actually taking place or not? We move on to one last point related to this section, which is when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that the questioner does not have more knowledge than the questions. Mr. manoli Rahim Allah He emphasizes something very, very greatly over here. And he says that it is upon the Muslim, the frequent the say statement of Allah knows best it is the frequent the statement of Allah knows best, that as a human being, you
are not required to answer every single question you are asked, you're not required to come up with an answer for everything. So if you are doubtful about something, say I do not know, if you have Chuck in something, say I do not know. And it is only when you are truly certain of something that you should actually answer it. And he goes on to emphasize this fact that when Mr. Malik Rahim, Allah was asked, you know, 40 odd questions for 40 straight answers, he kept on saying, Allah knows best I do not know Allah knows best. I do not know Allah knows best. I do not know if this is you know, the likes of one of the great moms of the predecessors, who had permission from over 70 of his
teachers to give fatwa, then how about the average individual that when he is asked a question about Islam, he should not think that he's required to give an answer, but only answer that question which you're absolutely certain. If you are not certain of it, there is no shame there is no harm in saying I do not know for if the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the most knowledgeable the most individual that has the most taqwa can say I do not know, then where is the shame in ourselves was being asked a question that we have no knowledge of saying I do not know. So this is a reminder for myself and all of us that remember no Rahim Allah emphasizes that we should
get into the habit of saying I do not know that Allah knows best. And from the purchases, you'll actually see that they used to say that the statement of Allahu Allah is actually half of knowledge that an individual that answers all the questions, you know that he's not knowledgeable, he's just making things up. And there's actually a funny story that shifted bacala, Jose de la, he mentioned in a little tolerable end, that an individual, he used to live amongst the people that didn't know very much. And he had a little bit of knowledge, and he wanted to deceive the people. So every time someone would come and ask him a question, he would always answer to them, that there's two opinions
on this matter. And he would say that, here's one side of it. And here's the other side of it, always saying these two things, until eventually the people caught on to this until eventually people caught on to this, and one man comes and he makes up a word. I can't even remember what the word was. It was like, What was it? Sharon Kula or something along those lines, if they make up a word, and they ask him or she, what does this word mean? And he starts mentioning how that this is a small tree that grows in the mountains of Yemen and starts giving a long explanation, thinking that the people will not look into this, but that man says all men fear Allah.
primate this word operate now, and this shows you that an individual gets into the habit of answering all questions. This is what it leads to start, you know, lying upon the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala without any shame. So one should not feel any shame in saying, I do not know. So now the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam has asked a further question, he says, that informed me about the signs there have informed me of what the signs of the Day of Judgment actually are. Now, jabril over here is asking this question, again, to educate the audience, to educate the audience of the signs of the Day of Judgment, to instill inside of them the concept of a sign to increase their
demand, because that is what the signs of the Day of Judgment are actually all about. It's not about delving into conspiracy theories, but it's about increasing one's own Eman. Then when you see the signs of the Day of Judgment, then you actually start to realize that sipan Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala definitely spoke the truth and he definitely sent a messenger, Mohammed Salah la new send them because they informed us of this 1400 years ago, they informed us of this 1400 years ago. So then he goes on to mention the first sign he goes on to mention the first sign, and that is that they are that the slave girl will give birth to her master that they are the slave girl will give birth to
her master. Now, the scores of the past day, the most opinions, you'll see explaining this hadith is seven. So this section of the head is explaining seven opinions and having him Allah, he actually breaks it down into four opinions. And for our sake of discussion, we'll break it down into two opinions, we will break it down into two opinions just so we understand the concept. So concept number one, the general premise is that knowledge will be lost. That is the general premise of opinion number one, that all knowledge will be lost. And the way the scholars explained how knowledge will be lost is that people will take place in haram transactions, people will take place
in haram transactions, what is that haram transaction that they will buy, buy or purchase their own mother for slavery, they will buy and purchase their own mother for slavery. Now what used to happen in the past is that when the Muslims used to go out for war, they were able to take the slave girls as slaves and copulate with them and children would be born. And if children were born, that woman would become free. And he said that people would become so ignorant that they would pretend stop being you know that that woman and that the the woman, the child would become free, but the mother wouldn't. Or they said that this woman she would be sold while she is pregnant. And that's when she
is being sold around. She is eventually born, her child is the one that will eventually purchase her and use her for slavery. So the general concept behind the pinion number one is that all knowledge of Islam will be lost, and people will partake in impermissible transactions, opinion number two, and this is the opinion that will have the Blodgett promoted. And that is that people children in particular will become very, very abusive towards their parents, they will become very, very abusive towards their parents. Whereas the general case scenario is that, you know, the parent will dictate to the child do this and don't do that, that the sign will come where the children will start saying
that do this, and don't do that. Now, if you look inside, the explanation that we now know is probably headed by Mr. bazo. He brings a very, you know, interesting contrast. He says that if you look at the two signs that are mentioned in this Hadith, if you look at the two signs that are mentioned in the Hadith, that children being disrespectful towards their parents, and you know, barefooted Bedouin men, you know, competing with one another to build buildings, he says, one is assigned for the West, and other one is assigned for the east. Whereas if we look at the East, there were nothing but Bedouins, Allah gave them oil and give them money. And now they're competing with
one another to build these buildings. And you look at the West, that there were a civilization that was one very respectful and once caring towards their parents, but now it is the children who are starting to dominate the relationship, that if a parent was to ever lay a hand upon their child, then all of a sudden, this parent is very abusive, they're locked up in jail, and there are a whole bunch of other repercussions. Whereas if the child was to do something, you know, the child might get a slap on the hand, maybe get some detention, maybe get a couple of hours of community service, but no real repercussion takes place. So you bought a very clear contrast, the subtitle is very
interesting, that one is a sign for the east and one is a sign for the West. So in half, he promotes the second sign that the second opinion sorry, that this is the opinion be that the children will start to dictate the relationship that rather than the children fear the parents and being respectful of the parents, it is now the parents that become fearful of the children, and you know, listen and obey the children. And this is something Subhanallah very scary, because as young people in this room as we become parents, you know, it's scary to think that what our children are going to do to us, and it's just a matter for the manifestation of how we are towards our own parents. And if
we do not show the love and respect
fact that Islam has honored our parents with how do we expect to receive the same thing from our children? And it's a very scary thought Suppan Allah, Allah protect yourself.
Then he goes on to the second sign, the second sign, and that is that you will see the barefooted ones, the ones that are inappropriately dressed, the destitute the herdsmen of sheep, competing with one another to build lofty buildings competing with one another to build lofty buildings. Now, what's interesting about this is the mountain kotoba Rahim Allah who died in 671. He says, we saw this in our times, we saw this in our times. Now I you know, I don't know what our buildings are being built in 671 I'm assuming maybe like three stories, most horror stories most. You can imagine what they would say about you know, the buildings of our times. You go to the example of you know,
the borders Khalifa, you're to the example of the clock tower. You know, now there's a new one being built. I can't remember where it was, I think it was in Jeddah, the one mile building in Jeddah, one mile building, you know, Spangler around, he said, build me a building so that he can reach the skies. You know, is it sad to see that that building that fairground wanted is being built in our times? Now, this is not to say that, you know, building high buildings is haram within of itself. That is not the point of this hadith. No, that is not the point we're trying to achieve as well. But the point of this section of the Hadith is that the wrong people are being placed in power and are
given the wealth or being put in charge of the wealth, that there are the people who don't know how to, you know, use their authority, and the people don't know how to, you know, use their wealth, they are the ones that are being given the authority, and they are the ones that are being given the wealth. This is not to say that during golden era, but it's to show that all trust will be lost, that people who did not deserve the authority, they are the ones that will be put in charge and this is you know, again from the signs of our our times that you look at the land that was completely destroyed dude as this Hanif has mentioned, they were shepherds, they used to look after sheep, they
used to walk barefoot, you know, the the wouldn't have an issue of not covering themselves. And then unless I know what Allah blesses them with money, and now all of a sudden, literally within a span of 50 years, they're the ones that are competing with one another one principle in this one building, the next Prince has to build a larger building, and this is a science of the time that are imagined increase, that finally the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned this 1400 years ago. So that is the second sign that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions. Now to conclude off this Hadith, the conclusion of this Hadith, he says, whereupon the men
went off there upon the man went off. I waited a while and then he the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Omer. Do you know who the questioner was? I replied, Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam know better. He said, that was gibreel he came to teach you your deen, that was gibreel he came to teach you your deen. Now, this last portion of the Hadith is actually a significant, you know, section, but there's a lot of difference in the wording of the Hadith. So in the wording of whatever the law I know it is very clear that only a short amount of time went by that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told the audience that this was gibreel that
came to ask those questions. But if you look at other narrations, such as the veneration of a photo Allah, it shows that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam only told Omar radiallahu, three days after that, if you know the way that Amara de la new sought the Hadith, that after this man left in his habit dispersed, so almost went back to his house, and he used to change days with his neighbor. The next day his neighbor came, no knowledge was given and it was only the third day was almost one two back that Omar found out that it was debris that came to the Messenger of Allah in the La Jolla center. Now why is this significant? Why is this significant? It is because of the way the Messenger
of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam interacted with the man that came, it is the way that the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam interacted with the men that came, that the Messenger of Allah saw Islam, from what we understand from this Hadith, for the vast majority of this interaction, did not actually know that it was gibreel that came, did not actually know that it was gibreel that came, but rather it was later on that jabril made himself appearance to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam and that is when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually found out that it was gibreel. Another point of interest over here is that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi
wa sallam even though he is the one answering the questions, he attributes the teaching to Jubilee, he says that gibreel is the one that came to teach you your religion. And what the scholars derived from this section of the Hadith Is that the one that has the intention to pose an intelligent question to educate the people has a share in the reward as the teacher
As the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam says, done while in clave, Cavalli that the one who you know indicates or directs the person to goodness is gets the same amount of reward as the person who does it himself as the person who does it himself. So here this is why the Messenger of Allah so seldom attributed to jabril that he came to teach you your deen. Now the third and last point is that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam summarize this narration as the deen itself attack on you I Lima comb Dina calm that he came to teach you your deen. So here the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying that if you want to understand the, you know a holistic
view of Islam, then it is found in this hadith of gibreel. That if you want to look at the levels of fluctuation,
that a movement will have that a believer will have if you want to look at how a person can enter into Islam, if you want to look at how a person can raise his email. All of this is found in the hadith of gibreel. And the Messenger of Allah Shazam also teaches us what will be the difference between success and failure and that will be the Messenger of Allah says, Allah also teaches us in this Hadith, that more important than the signs of the Day of Judgment, or the Day of Judgment itself is what have you prepared for it? The Messenger of Allah says on teaches us in this Hadith, that the believer should always look at the world around him because these are all from the signs of
Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you should be cognitive of the world around him and should not always be isolated and you know, just dealing with his own affairs. So the messenger bots Islam describes this hadith as a holistic view of the deen as a holistic view of the deen. And with that we conclude the hadith of gibreel and within the hits Allah next week we'll do Hadith number three, and Hadith number four, so we will have completed the first five Hadith because we did have the number five when we did the conclusion of hedis number one as well. So next week we will do hedis number three and four and we would have completed five hedis and then be the light other we'll be taking a break
as she has seen we'll be doing a workshop on the fifth of Ramadan and the fifth of fasting and preparing for the month of Ramadan benign Salah. And then after Ramadan I will be continuing on with the Imam notes for the Hadith to conclude within the hits Allah so we'll conclude with that was a lot more cinematic and in the Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam and we will take questions with the night Allah forehead.
This is gonna open up a can of worms. But in studying this hadith one of the things you'll actually learn is that it is attributed to the prophet of Salaam that he saw was fine with Allah twice with his art that he saw was fine with Allah twice with his art. Now this is something that the scholars would pretty much consider. This was something that was exclusive for the Messenger of Allah Sosa. It can never be attained by anyone else. So the reality of this affair What does it mean to see Allah subhanho wa Taala with one's heart, Allah subhanho wa Taala knows the reality of it. But I shadowed the law on her she commented on the hadith of Abdullah Ahmad that said that whoever claims
that the Messenger of Allah says I'm saw him with his eyes has light. So it's clear that you never saw him with his eyes. But in terms of what is the significance of him seeing Allah subhanaw taala with his heart and what does that mean? This is, you know, something that is beyond my knowledge, I haven't read any scholarly commentary on it. And I believe that you know, only the Messenger of Allah and Allah subhanaw taala knows best for it.
five words you said as well.
What is the
Right. So the general concept, the general concept is that during the life of the Messenger of Allah, so then that is what the Sahaba used to say a lot, a lot of soon, who Allah because revelation was still coming down. So the Messenger of Allah says to them, he spoke in Revelation, when he spoke about the deen either through Hadith or through the Quran, as both of them were revelation. And when the prophet SAW Selim passed away, they stopped saying that a lot of Sudoku annum they used to just say Allahu Adam, and this is what you see in the statement of Imam Malik that he said Allahu Allah and the Sunnah used to say that Allah Who I am this would did that, you
know, Allah who Adam is, you know, half of the deen or half of knowledge. So during the lifetime of the person that used to say to because revelation was coming down after that, they didn't say it because it didn't make sense anymore. The Messenger of Allah Setsuna has passed away and his knowledge has, you know, left with him. So for our sake, it would be incorrect to say
Allahu Allahu Allahu Allah. If and we should just say that Allah Spanos Allah knows best.
So lots of questions, the question, yeah.
Anyway, because you
know that that is obviously not the case because he would have to wait for revelation to come down. So there are certain matters of the deen that he only knew because revelation came down to him. So attribute ultimate knowledge of the deen to the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam is incorrect. But to attribute knowledge that we need to know then that is something that messenger was so seldom had to have known and had to have taught us. So you see the difference between the two? So there are certain things as Muslims, we need to know that they are compulsory for our faith, like how many times a day we need to pray or how many centers they are, because we need to get closer to Allah
subhanaw taala. But what is the exact number of wings that gibreel had? It has very little effect on our Eman even though this is a part of our DNA because jabril is the carrier of Revelation. It is a subsidiary type of knowledge. So in such a situation when someone wants to ask you, and this is something that the message most of them did ask whether it was answered. So let's just say, you know, what color was Giblin? You know, let's just go with that. For this something that I mentioned versus on the best of my knowledge there was never asked, nor did he ever answer. So this type of knowledge to see that Allah and His Messenger, so I said, I'm no best. It could be correct. It could
be incorrect, right? Because there's something that wasn't pertinent to our faith. What is something that is pertinent to our faith? You can say Allah and His Messenger know best, but we always mentioned that the way of our predecessors is always the safest way. And if the predecessor is always answered with along those best, that is something that we should suffice with as well.
Yep. Did you have something? Yeah.
So this goes under the section of kitsilano legend of hiding knowledge. So person asks you a question. And you know, you're too busy on your phone or something. And he's like, brother, can you teach him how to do Voodoo? And you're like, No, I'm playing you know, Angry Birds on my phone right now. This is a major form of Kitson manual. And so this is something that he would have to answer, because if he's certain of how to perform will do, it is upon him to teach the person that is genuinely asking on how to perform will do.
Then this is where a person needs to have focus then, you know, Abdullah, Abdullah, I know
he talks about the island urbani, right, that who I was fine with Allah, He tells him the Quran, Allah can kuno that be a murderer by noon, right? He says that they are the ones that teach the people the small matters before the teach them the big matters. So you can be a judge of this person is at a level where he needs to know what a weak Hadith is, and the types of weak Hadith are, go ahead and teach it to them. But if he's a person that is still struggling on how to pray, it does not make sense to the teaching the categories are weak Hadith. So use your own fact over here.
No, you don't have to do because you have to use your foot over here that if you feel that what you answer will cause more problems for him. You shouldn't teach it to him, but rather focus on teaching him What is more important to him? Make sense? Go ahead.
Where did God come from? How do you think you should answer that question? What should you How should you answer that question?
Sorry. He was never born. Okay. That's one way of answering it. I would change this question around. And I would ask the individual, what are you trying to achieve by this question? And then I will change the direction in that way. A lot of times when people ask these questions, it's not because they genuinely want this knowledge. It's one of two things. Number one, they just want to frustrate you to make you seem that you can answer these questions or number two, they're being inspired by shape on the shaitaan is playing with their minds. At that time you tell them Look brother See I will be lying the chanology go perform will do and inshallah you will get your answer. You know,
that's how you do that though that situation? And Allah knows best, right?
pursuit of perfection.
Can perfection actually be attained? Because perfection is not doing something once it is staying at to that level, as Aristotle said.
Just one second. Go ahead.
is it okay to fail? Or
or is it okay to
you should never be content with where you are. That is a general concept. Never Be content with where you are, and you're always striving for excellence. But at the same time, you have to be realistic as well, that you are not an angel. At the end of the day. you're meant to commit sin so that you can perform Toba from it.
So you always keep striving hard, and then you realize that you will dip and then when that dip happens, you repented back to Allah subhanaw taala and you keep striving higher. Now what is an important point over here is what the Messenger of Allah says to them called the Fatah. And what he referred to as the Fatah is the dip that I'm referring to. And he says that all of the believers will have a dip and whoever is dip is in accordance to my Sunnah he will stay safe and whoever is dip is outside of my center, then he is destroyed. What this hadith actually means is if you look at an individual that struggles with his Eman, right so let's take the act of Salah, Salah is of three
types, you have the form Salah, your Sunnah prayers, and you have enough of prayers, and individualized doing all three he's doing as soon as part of his son and his knuffel. When his Eman goes down, he loses his son his knuffel prayers, and he can gain that back. And individually that's just doing this for them. So now his mind goes down. He loses his supers. His Ford is still there, right. And now the individual is just doing his for the prayers. When his mind goes down what's left, nothing is left whatsoever. And that is why the Messenger of Allah says and I mentioned that whoever is Fatah, whoever whoever is dip is in accordance to my sooner he will be saved because the
sooner goes down the road is still there. But whoever is just holding on to the photo and his demand goes down. He has lost his Islam at the end of the day. And that is why when we talk about the Sunnah prayers, it's not just about seeking extra reward. It's about protecting yourself from the traps of a thought and protecting your Eman as well. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. Go ahead.
He never told me the right answer.
It's very possible that he meant he wanted you to say that Allah is nowhere that He exists would be llama cat that's possible that what he was looking for. But in such a question, I would suggest that Muslims not get into this question. It is a as a question that the Muslims are not prepared to answer. So right. I mean, if you look at the times the messenger most of them asked this question. In the law, it was less than three times there are only three documented cases where the Messenger of Allah Salaam asked this question. And the wisdom behind the messenger was, and I'm asking this question, out of the three cases, it was to see is this person a believer or not? That is this
person familiar with the Quran or not? It was never to do empty hand. It was never the test the person, you know, what does he say about Where's Allah? subhanaw taala? So this question, while it is a question that is posed by the Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam, we never see this question ever being asked again by the Sahaba, or by the tabbing, after them, because it was a question that is not befitting because it leaves a question, at least the person being questioned into matters that he may not be qualified to answer. So when Allah subhanaw taala tells us a rough manual analysis. What is the point that we're that is meant to be, you know, derived from this verse, Allah
subhanaw taala mentioned this concept of sdwa, at least seven times in the Quran. The point that is being derived over here is that it is a rough man that it is Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Most Merciful, that is highest, you know, above you, and that his mercy is always descending upon you. This is the actual point of the verse, it is not to actually say that Allah subhanho wa Taala did is the was one of his attributes. Yes, that is one of the lessons. But this is the lesson that the scholars specialize in Akita would derive the lesson the average Muslim wants to derive from this verse is that the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is always descending upon us. That is the lesson
the average Muslim wants to derive from this verse. So in such a situation, I think you've learned a very valuable lesson that people are not always genuinely asking your question, especially if your teacher, I don't understand why he would give you a question and not give you the answer. Now, part of being a teacher, is that if you were to test your students, if they get something wrong, you'd give them the answer. And this is why there's a very important slider that says, largely due to tequila ban, and walked alhaja, that it is not permissible to delay teaching in times of necessity. So if I've applied placed a doubt in your mind, it is my responsibility to clarify your doubt for
you as well. So May Allah help you and teach you? I mean, any other questions? We'll take two last questions and then we'll stop inshallah. Go ahead.
Signs? Yes, especially the 10. Major. So my question is, what is the significance of these two signs?
And what is the element?
Right, excellent. That is a very good question. So in terms of the signs of the Day of Judgment, they're clearly divided into two, the minor the minor signs of the ideal judgment and the major signs of the day judgment. The major
Signs of the Day of Judgment are those that will happen quickly in succession. Towards the end of time, the minor signs of the Adult Day of Judgment are things that we will start to notice in our own routines. Now what is the wisdom behind these two signs being mentioned and this hadith? Allah subhanaw, taala knows best, I really do not know what the significance could be a one knows best, I don't know.
The element of teaching, Allah knows best to get something I have to think about. inshallah, if I get time, I'll try to think about and I'll try to research it as well. And if I find something mentioned the next week, but then I thought, those are very good questions. There's like a locker. Last question.
have totally taken all you have to
change, to oppress
As a human being rich, rich, pay to be gone. So how?
So I'm just gonna stop you for one second, what was the draw that you're seeing that they made?
a rich person, okay.
Okay, so last week, we were talking about the types of products and we said that there are four types of products, right, and only one of them can be changed. So he said, the quarter that cannot be changed is the color that is written in the local map booth, right. And then there are three other types of color that can be changed. Number one was the color that is written when you are born. And what are the four elements that are written when a person is born from them is a shukran. Outside is he from the from the someone who's shocky or someone who is saved. So this is something that can be changed. This is not something that is set in stone, right based upon a person's Iman,
he can be going from, you know, being someone who's Chucky to someone who is saved. So while this element is written in local food, the final element that we do not know of is written in the local map booth, but through a person's actions and through a person can you know, go from the clear to the other, he can go from the person who's shocky to a person who is
Does that make sense? And this is why the Hadith in Bukhari
under the Tafseer, of sort of delayed, when the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he clearly told the Sahaba of the law, I know that all of you have your place destined for you already. Those of you that are going to gender and those of you that are going to Jannah. So one of the companions, he said, Yasser Allah, should we leave all action and just rely upon this? And then the messenger system said, No, he said, Hey, I'm Alou for Cologne, Maria surah, Lima Haleakala. He said no but rather act for indeed the destination you were created for its actions will become easy for you. So part of making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala is part of that ama, that Oh Allah make us
from the Shahada, and then you know, don't make us from those who are shocky. So this is part of the AMA, and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. We'll conclude with that pentacle, amo behind Nika Chateau La La Land as the hirokawa to a lake. And again, we'll continue next week at 7:30pm is in the heated
