And then Hamdulillahi Narmada who wants to you know who was stuck sort of when I was a biller? Him surely and fusina women say at Dr. Molina, Maria de la who Philomel de la la Whom are you drill who further ha de la or Chateau La Ilaha illa Allah who would actually Kedah was shadow Anna Mohammed Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman Kathira and my blood, my dear brothers in Islam, so damn it come rahmatullahi wa barakato.

00:00:33--> 00:01:08

So tonight's halacha is going to be on emammal widow with the city attorney. And I want to start off the Halacha by sharing a an interesting story that I read about his chef who was the Imam Muhammad Muhammad Rahim Allah hota Allah. So the teacher that Imam Abu Dhabi spent the most amount of time with benefiting from and learning from was Imam Muhammad with the humble. And it was known through His Son Abdullah that Imam Muhammad used to pray over 100 Duck eyes each and every single night, except when Yahia Blumarine used to come and visit. So after your human domain left, he asked his father, you know, my father, why is it that tonight you didn't pray, you know, the the amount of

00:01:08--> 00:01:45

prayer that you usually do, and then you know, Muhammad, he said is sundown and he told him Look, as for the records that have been missed, and those can be made up later on, whereas the opportunity to sit and benefit from a person of knowledge, then that is something that cannot be made up and that is why that opportunity should be should be seized at all times. Now, this is very befitting because when you look at MAMA Buddha Rahim Allah, he had over 300 teachers now when you compare that to him I was Bukhari, who we mentioned that had over 1080 teachers, you know, it seems very small, but when you compare a Buddha out to the rest of his, you know, contemporaries, you know, they usually had

00:01:45--> 00:02:27

1520 30 teachers of Hadith at most so to have 300 is still a large amount of number and this is part of the motivation that Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah instilled inside of without later on, we'll discuss you know, some of the interesting fickle opinions that Imam Muhammad taught without and so on and so forth. But let us start off with his name, inshallah Tada. So remember without his name is actually different upon. He's one of the few individuals that even though he was very profound and very renowned, they did not document his name properly. So opinion number one in terms of his name was Suleyman. ignatia. Abdo is Huck Abdul Bashir Abdul shuddered Abdul amor as the StG sad Stanny and it

00:02:27--> 00:03:05

was also said the second opinion is true, they might have been able to shut down the hammer, and you know, it skips is Haku Bashir even though she escapes is Hakuna mushiya At that time, so Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best the moment the Hopi said the first opinion is stronger than from his grandparents growing from his grandfather's was his Huck even though Bashir. Now, in terms of what is sad and what is a sigil Stanny Eliza D is one of the pure Arab tribes and from the Imams that we have discussed in mama widow is the first actually pure Arab from all of the Imams of Hadith that we've discussed all the others, they were mustered up they became Arab due to the tongue of learning

00:03:05--> 00:03:25

the Arabic language and that is where Eliza de comes from, as being a tribe from Yemen. And in that is his lineage going back to the people of Yemen, a sigil Stanny. This goes back to where Imam Abu Dhabi was actually from, which was southern Afghanistan very close to the borders of modern day Pakistan. And that is where he was from.

00:03:26--> 00:04:05

As for when he was born, Eman will be dealt with, he narrates about himself that he was born in the year 202. He was born in the year 202. And in that very narration, he talks about him being born in the year 202. He documents about how he traveled to Iraq for the first time he travelled to Baghdad for the first time in the year 220. So meaning to him at the age of 18. He is already traveling to Baghdad. And he says that I arrived in Baghdad with the aspirations to learn from a scholar of Hadith. But I learned that he had passed away the day just before the day just before. Now, I think about a narration like this and you're like, man, all that effort, gone to waste Subhanallah you

00:04:05--> 00:04:44

travel the journey of like, you know, months to go and meet the scholar of Hadith to find out, he passed away when did he pass away not months ago, not years ago, but yesterday that had you just come 24 hours earlier, you potentially could have benefited from this individual and universe probably the color of Allah subhanaw taala that what is meant to be will happen what is not meant to be will not happen. Now, in that trip, though, he did end up meeting other scholars of Hadith that he did benefit from, and the benefit we're taking from this is that he clearly mentioned himself that he was born in the year 202. He was born in the year 202. In terms of his upbringing kin like

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

the other scholars of Hadith. He naturally had a love for Hadith from a very, very early age. In fact, this was something that was in his family that there were scholars of Hadith he had an older brother by the name of Muhammad, who was a scholar of Hadith as well. And his son also became a scholar of Hadith

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

remembers his son's name. Don't tell me even a bit though, please

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

use our bucket as a couldn't. Yeah, what was the name?

00:05:08--> 00:05:20

Abdullah fantas. That's usually easy when all the scholars of Hadith have Abdullah Abdul Rahman. Right. That's just the way it goes. That's just the way it goes. Now

00:05:21--> 00:05:22

I want to share with you

00:05:23--> 00:06:03

something interesting about imam or widowed and his relationship with him and Muhammad, and how Abu Dhabi with he actually resembled Imam Muhammad a lot, not only in the way that he looked, the way he acted the way he talked, and so on and so forth. So much so that one of the commentators one of the narrators of cinema without whose name is able to dasa, his name is Ibnu dasa. And we'll come to learn more about him later on. He narrates that and this is what remember the hubby you know, quoting this, he says, but looking about the OED Kelemen hola Merle Amylin had to end a bother the emitter emitter con cannot be without you should be will be able to humble he had the he was deadly.

00:06:03--> 00:06:38

He was similar to he what kind of Hamid you should be hopefully that you can be waqia What kind of work here you should be. He'll be Sophia and Sophia and demon Soto and Serbia Ibrahim Ibrahim bi la cama. Welcome, the Abdullah with Mr. Abdullah Abdullah, who I know will call Allah comma can Abdul Massoud you should be hooping Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he had the heat within the heat. So Imam at the hobby he narrates from Abu dasa who says that it had reached us that Budos was from the scholars that used to act upon the knowledge that they had. And some of the scholars had said that who those resembled Imam Muhammad, the humble in the way that he conducted himself and in the way

00:06:38--> 00:07:18

that he looked just like Ahmed used to resemble his teacher who was a Loki Abu Jarrah and Loki Abner Jura. He used to resemble his teacher who is Sophia and the theory and Sophia an authority you should resemble his teacher, who was Mansoor and his team. He and his teacher resembled Ibrahim and Naki, who used to resemble alchemy. The workers who used to resemble Abdullah was older the Allahu Anhu and Alka webnovel cos he says that Abdullah bin Massoud used to resemble the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in his conduct and in his character as well. Then Imam Abu Dhabi Rahim Allah he comments on this by saying it's about your little L Messiah, Al Mubarak, that an individual when he

00:07:18--> 00:07:56

becomes a follower of knowledge, he will naturally develop the characteristics of the people that he took it from. Now you can understand conduct and character, but how about even appearance as well, when they're talking about resemblance and appearance with referring to is the light of knowledge on the face of the individual, right? That's the resemblance that you're talking about that when Allah subhanaw taala blesses a person with knowledge that he acts upon and He blesses him with sincerity, then naturally Allah subhanho wa Taala will place a glare of light upon their faces will be clear will will bless them with the glare of light upon their faces. Who are the teachers of Imam Abu

00:07:56--> 00:08:18

Dhabi? Who are the teachers of Imam Abu though? Let's go back and try this again. Let's try to remember the teachers of all the six scenarios of Hadith Come on. We did this last week as well if I'm not mistaken, not last week, but when we did the Sunnah telemovie and I'm sorry mama Timothy. Who were the teachers of all the six Imams of Hadith

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


00:08:24--> 00:08:25

of man who

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

said General Abdul Rahman

00:08:32--> 00:08:35

the famous of the Ramadan Allahu Akbar

00:08:38--> 00:08:39


00:08:41--> 00:08:43

say the word Masha Allah

00:08:46--> 00:08:55

See, this is a part of the blessing that Allah subhanaw taala did not burden us with the protection of Hadith. If we were responsible for protecting the Hadith we have destroyed this Dean a long time ago.

00:08:57--> 00:09:03

Your close could say bourbon aside, so called table in the same time all the six Imams of Hadith who else?

00:09:05--> 00:09:07

Suggested man, let's go bro. What's happening when

00:09:11--> 00:09:50

you ask questions you don't want that just do. But I do want the answer to this question. Mohammed Abu Bashar Mohammed Abu Bashar also known as Al Bondar. Right Al Baghdadi come on Monday, we should remember that one. Okay, so they taught all the six Imams of Hadith all the six Imams of Hadith from the particular teachers of Imam of Buddhahood, who some of the moms have had the childhood and others didn't, was the man Muhammad Abdul humbug was the Hebrew behind so they might have no herb. These are some of the famous individuals that you should know when you talk about the narrator's of Hadith. Now, what's interesting is that widowed he actually did a comparison between to fame and

00:09:50--> 00:09:52

sorry, the reason why I was mentioning the six

00:09:54--> 00:09:59

Imams of Hadith and who their teachers were. I'm going to teach you a third name today, a third name today as well. And that is my

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

I'm in the building with Santa, also known as Abu Musa. So and Hadith when you're nonstarter humble sahabi, which talking about famous individuals by the Cooney of Abu Musa, this is who is referring to Muhammad Abdul Mithuna. And he was another teacher of all of these six Imams of Hadith. He was another teacher of all the 60 Imams of Hadith. Now, Imam will be the older him Allah, he did a comparison between Mohammed Abu Bashar who was Al Bondar, and Muhammad Abdul Mithuna. Who is Abu Musa over here. He said, Mohammed Abu Bashar, while he was, you know, a good narrator, he didn't have that many narrations. While he was a good narrator. He didn't have that many generations.

00:10:38--> 00:10:59

Whereas Abu Musa not only did he have many narrations, but he was very good in his narrations as well, he was very good in his narrations as well. The students remember of Imam or without, from the most famous of his students was his son was his son, Abdullah. Now, this is something we didn't mention the higher we've been a bit out, but there's some that will bring up now.

00:11:01--> 00:11:38

Enamel Buddha owed, he actually went on to criticize his son later on in his life, he said, My son is a liar and do not take Hadith for him Do not take Hadith from him. And when he talks about like drama in the family, you don't get the bigger drummer than that SubhanAllah. What we want to look at is, did Imam Abu download actually say this about his son? And what was the context behind this? What was the context behind this? So let's start off about what we know about Abdullah Abdullah accompanied his father pretty much everywhere that he went, in fact, a lot of the times he eliminated his father from the chain of narration, not as a sign of disrespect, but just to have a

00:11:38--> 00:11:52

shorter chain of narration through directly to the teacher, right. And that shows that he was a trustworthy man. He also compiled that poem of it that we discussed, which we said, was one of the first poems written in Africa, if not the first poem written in nakida.

00:11:54--> 00:11:56

Yes, please feel free challah.

00:11:59--> 00:12:39

Which was one of the first poems in Arcada. So we know him to be righteous, we know him to be a great Imam. And in fact, some of the scholars of the past even mentioned that we preferred Abdullah over his father, we preferred Abdullah over his father. Now, this narration of you know, Imam Abu Dawood, saying that my son is alive do not take from him. This is mentioned later on in the life of Imam or widowed and later on the life of his son, something clearly took place between his father and him that potentially could have caused him to say this, the famous scholar of today, Sheikh Abdul Razak, Allah, but he commented on this by saying, I did a study and a research on all of the

00:12:39--> 00:13:14

narrations that can be alluded to a mama without saying this about his son. And either they are not authentic, or they're found in dubious sources, meaning that books like books of the people of Buddha, they're the ones that will mention this. Now, why would the people have been mentioned this to discredit his son Abdullah, particularly from the poem that was written saying that look, why would we accept this form from someone that isn't trustworthy to begin with? So this is, you know, the conclusion of Sheikh Abdullah zakura. But that those that narration about his son Abdullah, where he says My son is a liar did not take from him are actually not authentic that this situation

00:13:14--> 00:13:52

did not actually took place. And then he says, even if it did take place, then we say that this was a personal matter between him and his father, because the rest of the scholars of Hadith considered him trustworthy. The rest of the scholars of Hadith considered him trustworthy. And even then, we considered his son Abdullah from his top students from his top students. Number two, and in the second individual that you should know from the students of Imam Abu Dhabi is Abu Zubaydah I jewelry, this God is not the famous scholar of Hadith allah God. This is another authority that is from the students of Imam without what's unique about a way that I jewelery is that he developed

00:13:52--> 00:14:14

something from Abu Dhabi, which Budo did with Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah, which was Imam odo, he compiled a book called sumaila to the Imam Muhammad the questions that were put forth to Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah, huzzah. And in these questions, there's like a lot of logic in these questions, you know, we learned some very valuable lessons.

00:14:15--> 00:14:17

So let me pose one of these questions to you right now.

00:14:18--> 00:14:44

Without he asked Mr. Muhammad Rahim Allah, what if a Christian woman has the son of a Muslim man inside of her and they both passed away? Where should this body be buried? Now understand what the left is about? The woman is Christian, the child inside of her is Muslim, and she buried with the non Muslims. Is she buried with the Muslims? What should happen?

00:14:47--> 00:14:48


00:14:49--> 00:14:54

because you want to get away from each other. You guys just it was at that point. And if your

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

mother died before the holidays, you were in the Christian because even though Okay, so they

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

To make the discussion shorter, let's just say this after 40 days. Why? Because

00:15:06--> 00:15:14

if the religion the father, the father's Muslim in this case, but then why would you bury a non Muslim woman in the Muslim graveyard?

00:15:17--> 00:15:19

So why do we give the woman more rights than she deserves?

00:15:26--> 00:15:28

Taken away from Muslims

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

take him away from the

00:15:30--> 00:15:33

Christian graveyard. It wouldn't make sense.

00:15:36--> 00:15:51

I mean, you have a good one area, but you're lucky forget a completely different day with a good answer the good effort. Mashallah COVID. Go ahead. Me personally, it's, I would say, that's one Kimber Jewish kids that have not

00:15:52--> 00:16:00

passed away your Christian kids, they were buried in the their own graveyards. So the fact that this child is still on the fence

00:16:01--> 00:16:05

is still similar that these children are also on the front row as well.

00:16:06--> 00:16:33

Okay, I'm just gonna stop people saying, hey, this child is still inside the womb of his mother. Yes. Okay. So we're not talking about just the child itself? Is the child inside the womb of the mother? Where is the where these two people want to be buried? Yes, I'm saying. So you're eventually getting there. Sorry. So the burden non Muslim graveyard, just because, you know, the child is still has caffeine, right? When a young

00:16:34--> 00:16:43

six months a year over a year old Jewish boy passes away. He's still concerned on Fedora, but he's still very injured graveyard. Cemetery. Okay.

00:16:45--> 00:16:46


00:16:48--> 00:17:21

That started up a discussion of, you know, if you'll allow me, let me just point out the flaw in your argument, being upon the fitter and being appointed to them or not one in the same, the fifth or at least Islam and the Islamic compasses the FITARA. But Islam in the federal are not the same. But still, I appreciate your answer, not the chance of the child did not grow up to be a Muslim. There's always a chance for everything, even though this child right now, you know, is technically not a Muslim, because it's not born yet. Right. That's what we're still discussing the issue over here. Okay, who else had their hand up? Go ahead?

00:17:22--> 00:17:24

The question is not good. The question is,

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

this is Abu download asking him

00:17:29--> 00:17:31

how do we know is?

00:17:34--> 00:17:52

No, no. So this scenario is the father is a Muslim. The mother is a Christian. The mother died during her pregnancy where the Muslim father's baby inside of her stomach. Now, he's a Muslim inside habibi. We're not talking about the person inside we're talking about the Father. The Father was Muslim.

00:17:53--> 00:18:00

That's what we're talking about. So should this woman be buried in the Muslim graveyard or the non Muslim graveyard? That's what we're discussing.

00:18:01--> 00:18:38

Today, they've Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah, he responded by saying that there's three opinions on this issue. He didn't explain what the three opinions were about, I would ask him and which one is the strongest one? And he says that this woman should be buried at the very end of the Muslim graveyard, where the non Muslim graveyard begins. That is what should be done with this one. And this shows us, you know, it's not just a black and white issue, but there's actually filming behind it. That coming back to the issue over here that, you know, I wanted to suggest, to get out of him at least, was that in Islam, it's a lot easier to give someone a right that you do not deserve, rather than take

00:18:38--> 00:19:15

away the right of something that they do deserve. So you had the answer, but the fic wasn't just there yet. Right? And this is part of the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala this is part of the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa taala. So now what we were getting to over here emammal widows he wrote this book called swallowed the Mr. Muhammad, which are the questions that he asked to Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah, and this is part now in part of a larger collection of books called Messiah, Imam Muhammad, like the the legal verdicts of Imam Muhammad, or the rulings that Imam Muhammad gave, which, you know, if I'm not mistaken, or three or four years ago, it was done as a doctoral thesis at the

00:19:15--> 00:19:53

University of Medina, in about 1314 volumes that all the different narrations of the Messiah, they were put together and that cake was done of it. So now ibobi That God, he's done the same thing with a mama without however, he didn't do, you know, * with him, but rather, he talked about Hadith and the more intrinsic signs of alien with a Buddha with more intrinsic signs of Adel with or without, so those are two main students of Imam Muhammad third student in amateur movie he was also student of sorry, there was a too many students remember without third students remember without Imam Timothy, For students I remember without Imam and they say what's interesting about imam in the

00:19:53--> 00:19:59

say is that was the Imam and they say actually a student of Imam Abu Dhabi or not Anessa

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

A as we'll come to talk about sometime in the future in sha Allah, He says in his collection of Hadith Wirkkala, a Buddha would have data without the abodo that he is referring to over here. Is it actually a Buddha with the sigil Stanny that we're talking about today? Or is it an other of without and this is like one of the issues with corneas when you leave it just as the qualia and you don't define who it is or, you know, a lockup or a particular characteristic that they may have had. It's almost impossible to tell. However, upon further research, it does seem that Imam and Nissei he did narrate from up without he did narrate from abou doubt.

00:20:37--> 00:21:15

Another interesting thing about Imam Muhammad and Abu Dhabi is that Abu Tao Rahim Allah like his pride and joy, like you, you know, you would ask someone what is like your biggest achievement in life? When Abu Dawood was asked this question, you know what is like your big achievement. He said, I narrated one Hadith to remain humble. Like one Hadith he didn't know I narrated it to him. And in you know, in cinema Widodo you actually find this hadith. In some of the versions, you'll see what had done to hide that hadith, the admirable humble that and I narrated this hadith to Ahmed Abdul Hamid as like his big pride and joy as big pride and joy.

00:21:16--> 00:21:56

Now in terms of, you know, the praise of the scholars for emammal Without very very interesting praises, I want I want I want to share these with you And subhanAllah you know, it really puts things into perspective how blessed the scholars of Hadith were. So the first one is one of these causes of Hadith by the name of Musa Ibrahim Hassan inshallah you can't forget this Musa Johan, right, he says Holika Buddhahood for dunya al Hadith? Well, Phil, Akira little Jana Zadra, HERBIE was a little while Mara itu Abdullah Minho that Musab no Harun, he said, Abu Dhabi was created in this dunya for Hadith, and he was created in the Acura for Paradise, and Abu Dhabi and others than

00:21:56--> 00:22:24

him, they added on this narration by saying, and we have not seen anyone better than him, we have not seen anyone better than him. In the science of Hadith we have not seen anyone better than him and the science of Hadith. So this shows us this panela like Hadith came so naturally to Imam but without that the scholar said that this was clearly what he was created for in this life and in the hereafter to be from the people of paradise, meaning that they're alluding to his level of piety, his level of worship, his level of fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:22:25--> 00:22:30

other praises for Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah. Let's find another one

00:22:31--> 00:22:32

that I had.

00:22:35--> 00:23:20

There was an individual by the name of Muhammad Hypnose Huck, a Sozzani Muhammad Yunus. Haka. Savani he said Olina the abidos and Hadith gamma Adina Lido the NABI and Hadith that you know, Hadith came so easily to Imam Abu Dawood Rahimullah just like a you know that the bending of metal came very easy to the Prophet, though and he said and then Abrahamic no habla and he said, Well Budo how to imitate dunya firsthand while manual have done when the second world war on it coin and Gemma our Sangha, whether Baron is Sunnah and so I will help him to have been one of the great scholars of Hadith as well. He says a Budos was from the major, you know, imams in this dunya of filth and

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

knowledge and memorization

00:23:23--> 00:24:04

and piety and, you know, proficiency and he compiled and he authored, and he protected the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abdullah domanda, one of the other great scholars of Hadith and fiqh. He says uh, huh Raju accuradio, Romania zoo a Sabbath min minima alone will Hatami Sol Baba al Bukhari were Muslim. We're about to Houma Buddha Odyssey just standing up Darkman and they say, he says that there were four individuals that compiled Hadith and distinguished between that which is authentic from that which is, you know, has a a weakness in it, and that which is, you know, a mistake from that which is correct, are for individuals, Al Bukhari and Muslim and then

00:24:04--> 00:24:52

after them was Agudo, the CG Stanny and above Darkman and the SE and above the ramen and say, from the other virtues of Imam Abu Dhabi Rahim Allah was his relationship with the rulers his relationship with the rulers. So he used to have a call them someone that used to serve him who says for Selena Al Maghrib, either Cara Alba ADA called him your call had an Emir Abu Muhammad Al morphic, who Al Khalifa and Zack you stepped in for the call to further call to the oath to be may be McCarney he be McCann here for the WHO for DACA worker some acapella Allah here Budos will call the manager Bill Amir famously had a locked called a hello sellers call a wanna hear called a

Have you ever had a heart attack earlier called a third we have our third we the owner de Kitab as soon called a nun had to start with a color Topher it Lahoma rewire fitna hola hola hola Dhaka. I don't mind I'm gonna call the Mojave further Sabina La Jolla. In the nurse Sharif or Homer will do our home film so called jabber for can we had our own bad daddy coworker I don't know what to do the Boehner home. We're being a nurse sitter for Smyrna.

00:25:30--> 00:26:05

So the servant of the mama without with he says that we prayed Maghrib together one day when someone knocked on the door. And when he checked to see who it was, it was the brother of the Khalifa. It was the brother of the Khalifa. So he told about the oath, you know who was here? And I would, I would welcome them in. And he, you know, embraced him. And he asked him, you know, what is it that's bringing you this late in the night to my house, and he says there's three things. The first of them is that I want you to move to Barcelona, I want you to move to Barcelona. So remember with all that I am Allah, he is in Baghdad at this time with Mr. Muhammad when this is taking place. So he's being

00:26:05--> 00:26:42

told to move to Basra? Why should he move to Barcelona, because it is a land through which the students of knowledge will come and travel to you. Meaning that remember, without luck, there's already a Muhammad there's already other scholars in Baghdad, why don't you move to bussola now, so that bussola can become a capital of learning as well, just like Bucha dad was. So he says, Fine, I'll do whatever you say. Then he says, give me the second thing that you want. He says, I want you to read to teach my children, your book, as soon as the son of a widowed, I want you to teach to my children. He says fine, no problem. He says, give me the third. And he says the third thing I want

00:26:42--> 00:27:17

you to do is I want you to teach my children privately, I want you to teach my children privately because the children of the qualify, they don't sit with the lemon, they don't sit with a lemon, then the mama Widodo him Allah he says as for this, then this is something that is not going to be possible because the noblest of people and the lowest of people, when it comes to seeking knowledge, they all become equal they all become equal and the blue jabber who was the high them he says that after that the children of the of the Khalifa and his brother they used to come and this used to sit with the layman at that time they used to sit with the layman at that time. What story does this

00:27:17--> 00:27:21

remind you of? It should remind you of someone who we previously discussed.

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

Coming to my mother No.

00:27:25--> 00:27:26

No Malik,

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

Imam Malik and Khalifa

00:27:31--> 00:27:34

make it simpler someone that we discussed previously.

00:27:35--> 00:27:41

I know a similar situation in history. No I'm for someone that we studied. We discussed previously.

00:27:43--> 00:27:48

Email Muhammad Imam Al Bukhari went through two fitness in his life. What are the two fitness

00:27:50--> 00:27:50


00:27:53--> 00:27:54

are you making this up?

00:27:56--> 00:27:58

I don't know what you're talking about.

00:27:59--> 00:28:02

The Quran created are fantastic. That was one fitna. What was the second fitna?

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


00:28:08--> 00:28:47

was left alone. No, he was left alone. No, no. The second fitna, was with the Khalifa himself was with the Khalifa himself. One the Khalifa was from the Holy Family. Right. That was one issue. Number two is that the Khalifa wanted Emanuel Bukhari to come and teach his children's hell Bukhari. He wanted his children to learn Suhail Bukhari from Imam Bukhari, but he wanted Imam Bukhari to come to his house. And then what did the man Bukhari respond at that time? He says, People humble themselves to knowledge and knowledge is not humble itself in front of anyone knowledge is not humble itself in front of anyone. And it's similar to what a man will do the thing that you can take

00:28:47--> 00:29:06

the noblest of people, you can take the lowest of people when it comes to seeking knowledge, they become equal when it comes to seeking knowledge, they become equal. So from the praises of Imam Widodo Rahim Allah is that he was not afraid of taking a stance towards the rulers, he's not afraid of taking the stance towards the rulers.

00:29:08--> 00:29:48

Now what we want to discuss is the Sunnah of albedo itself the actual son of a widowed itself. Now, when you look at the books that Mama widowed authored, He has authored quite a few books he has the similar way without he has a book called Mara Mara sale, which is an introduction to the narrations that are missing individuals in between people. He had another book called A Letter A letter to the people who denied Carter a letter to the people who denied Carter. What we want to look at is a letter called the salah Illa Halima QCCA. A letter to the people of Makkah, in which he described his sin and epidote. So in this letter to the people of Makkah, he describes to them why he wrote in

00:29:48--> 00:30:00

an epidote What was the objective behind it, the number of a hadith and his methodology in writing the Southern abidos. So that is a book that he wrote, which is integral to studying the Sunnah of a

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

Buddha which is the integral to studying the son of a Buddha with first How did Imam a Buddha owed choose the Hadith that he chose? And how many of them were the female or widowed? He said I had compiled 500,000 Hadith from the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, of which I chose 4800, of which I chose 4800 of those Hadith. Now, what's interesting is that

00:30:25--> 00:30:43

when you know, you look at the modern day version of Abu download, you will find in eight 5274, who can tell me why there's a discrepancy. Imamo with himself says, I put 4800 Hadith. And when you look at the modern day version of a defy file file, you find 5274. Yeah.

00:30:47--> 00:31:08

Fantastic. So certain Hadith are repeated. So not in terms of different chains of narration, but certain Hadith are repeated. So then the one that has a higher number is counting the repetition was the 400,800 is not including the repeated Hadith, there's a second reason as well. Yeah, you can use different generation to get through it with someone that they believe to be weak. Now that strengthens the narrative.

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


00:31:12--> 00:31:14

Why would there be a discrepancy?

00:31:17--> 00:31:18


00:31:19--> 00:31:21

present or completion a

00:31:24--> 00:31:32

good guess, but not, is it but afterwards? They actually, whoever offered the book, we've compiled our system.

00:31:33--> 00:31:36

Good, yes. But not That's not it. Last one.

00:31:41--> 00:31:45

We're gonna get to that we're gonna get to that. If they're not then maybe just counting.

00:31:46--> 00:32:19

He's counting the authentic hadith. And they include all the weak Hadith as well, while you look at No, that's not it. So this discrepancy actually takes place in the narrator's of Hadith. So when the mama widowed, he compiled this, people married this Hadith from him, right? He didn't just say, hey, here's my Budo, you know, it's a copy for you, but rather, he would read it out to students and his students would write down. So depending on the version of the Hadith, that you diversion, or the amount of Halaqaat that you attended from or without, is how many narrow Hadith rhetorical generic from him. So if you actually missed any Halaqaat, your version is going to be a lot shorter than

00:32:19--> 00:33:00

someone that attended everything, then that will continue based upon their students as well. If their students missed any Halaqaat the version is going to keep getting shorter and shorter. So the version of Windows that you know is most renowned is the version with new data. And that is the one that has 5274 and that is the one that if you take out all of the repeated Hadith, inshallah should come up to 4800 as the Imam of widows is suggesting, what's interesting is that in his letter to the people of Makkah, he says, Khattab Dona Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes from your al Hadith and interclub to the Hmong to mA Dhamma men to who were Jamaat to fee Kitab behind the

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

abattoir enough Hadith and with Emanuel Mia Hadith, Minister Hiya, warmer you should be who are your people who are your CFI insane Lee Dini him in Velyka are two Hadith. So he says after he says I had 500,000 Hadith of which I took 4800 Hadith, he says, And from those 4800 Hadith, four of them were sufficing from the rest four of them will suffice to from the rest. Number one in the vignette, number two men hosted Islam in the Moderator Humala, Yanni that from Buster ones Islam is leaving that which is not concerned him. Number three is now your manual how to combat that you humbly Akiva you're humble enough see that none of you will truly believe that he loves his brother, what he

00:33:41--> 00:33:46

loves for himself. And then the fourth hadith is Hidalgo and Hala debayan Will horombo by in

00:33:47--> 00:34:07

so he says that these four Hadith will suffice an individual from the rest of the Hadith that are in there from the rest of the Hadith that are in there. Now, here's something interesting, these four Hadith over here what does it remind you of something else that we've discussed in the past? These were these should remind you of something else.

00:34:08--> 00:34:20

For the hadith of Imam now we very good it should remind you that what three out of the four Hadith are in there, actually, no all of them are in there all of them are so all of the Hadith our environment now is for the Hadith. That's very good, but that's not what I'm looking for.

00:34:23--> 00:34:35

Yes, each hadith is a force of Islam. This is sort of what the Buddha was alluding to over here. Go ahead. Wait. Oh, I was about to say something like that. It's quite obvious. Sometimes either.

00:34:37--> 00:34:59

Okay, inshallah. Even Abizaid, Alka Ravani. He said that all of our clock revolves around four Hadith all of our clock revolves around four Hadith from those four Hadith. Two of them are actually mentioned over here that none of you love for your brother, what you love for yourself that none of you will truly believe till the love for your brother what you love for yourself, and from the best of ones Islam is leaving that which does not concern you then

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

He added two more Hadith which were, whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should be good and remain silent and Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam where he was asked for advice. And he said Do not get angry, do not get angry, do not get angry. Now someone do

00:35:16--> 00:35:29

some, what's the word? I'm looking for deduction, deduction between the four hadith of Buddha with mansions and for the Hadith that they've been Abizaid mentions what can we analogical deduce from this for Hadith?

00:35:36--> 00:35:40

It is late in the evening man and it's not even that late. Go ahead

00:35:45--> 00:35:47

and start writing people

00:35:49--> 00:35:50

because the first one is like

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


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

How do you

00:35:58--> 00:36:03

find the best ones Islam is leaving that which is not concerned you? Nevermind, inshallah fed.

00:36:04--> 00:36:43

Okay, so I will make it easier for you guys again in sha Allah. The point being that since there's an overlap between the whole religion of Islam, which is what a Buddha suggesting versus all of a HELOC, what does it teach you? that more than half of the deed is good luck half the deen is good luck and this is something that the scholars of the past clearly understood. And that is why they will say that we learned o'clock before we learn the Hadith we will learn you know, Eman before we will learn the Quran. So there was a very heavy emphasis on God of luck, which is what every Muslim needs to understand that before you start studying knowledge, your clock needs to be on par. Because

00:36:43--> 00:37:23

you know, bad luck will make the knowledge ugly, whereas Good luck will make the knowledge even more beautiful inside the individual. So reason why people would reject knowledge from a person is due to the lack of luck and people will love a person even if he doesn't have much knowledge, but he implements the knowledge that he has and he has got a clock. So this is the importance of a HELOC. This the importance of a HELOC. Other things that we find about avocados or ham hola in his sunnah that we will discuss is the methodology that Imam Abu Dhabi took in compiling the Sunnah. So in his letter to the people of Makkah, as we discussed, he writes his objective, his objective behind

00:37:23--> 00:38:06

compiling Sinan epidote was every single Hadith that the scholars of filk have used as a form of proof, he wanted to compile it together in one place. So every Hadith scholars or filk have used to develop a ruling in fact, he wants to compile it in one place. So that is the objective behind Sinan albedo. That is the objective behind sinabi doubt. Second thing that he mentions, every Hadith that I've mentioned in Sinan epidote is solid is solid. Now this is where a lot of difference of opinion, you know occurs when Abu Dawood mentions that every Hadith I've mentioned is solid, what does it mean? Does it mean that the hadith is solid or solid Lilla the judge that it is, it is you know,

00:38:06--> 00:38:50

sound within of itself, or is this sound to be used as a proof it is sounds to be used as a proof when you study sunnah without with itself, what the conclusion you come to is every Hadith inside sunnah, without is definitely not authentic. However, it can be authentic enough to use as a proof authentic enough to use as a proof. Now people may be questioning, you know, how is it possible that a hadith is not authentic, but it is authentic enough to use as a proof. So going back to the objective that Abu Dawood had, he wanted to use every single narration that the scholars have used to develop a ruling on to develop a ruling on so now what if the scholars are basing their ruling

00:38:50--> 00:39:00

based upon a weak Hadith who can give me an example of this, the scholars basing the ruling upon using a weak Hadith There's a very famous example though the it's very

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

rare to have an elder with you have to shake hands. Because the Hadith itself is weak. But there's other evidence with that thing too, that

00:39:10--> 00:39:18

I need something more explicit, and it's particular to the seminary without out of all the Imams he was the only one to mention this hadith.

00:39:20--> 00:39:21

A particular Salah

00:39:24--> 00:39:25

Oh, man, come on.

00:39:27--> 00:39:34

This would be a fantastic salad. This beer is only reported by sin epidote. And some of

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

you have a question or comment.

00:39:38--> 00:39:40

If it's a comment about selected, go ahead,

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

isn't it because

00:39:44--> 00:40:00

I'm just getting to that right now If you'd allow me to finish. So since Abu Dawood mentioned this hadith, and they looked at the wrestler that he wrote to the people of Makkah, saying that every Hadith I mentioned is solid. People assume that Imam Abu Tao The reason he mentioned this is because

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

He considered the Hadith to be solid. But in reality this is not the case. He mentioned this hadith for the fact of this is the only Hadith can be found to establish his authenticity. It's a it's an individual Hadith that is not shared by a lot of people. And in reality, it is a weak Hadith in reality, it is a weak Hadith and that is why the other mums of Hadith did not mention it. But why did he mama without mentioning it over here? It is solidly the judge to prove that look, this is the only Hadith found in the chapter. And this is what they're basing it upon. Do I necessarily agree? No. How did Imam Abu Dawood give that disclaimer? Through a simple principle that when you mentioned

00:40:36--> 00:41:14

your isnaad, the burden of responsibility is no longer upon you the burden of responsibility is no longer upon you. You only have the burden of responsibility of conveying what is authentic from what is not authentic. If you don't mention this in the snap if you do not mention the snap. Now, there's another point over here is that Imam are widowed. He says I did not quote anyone that there was each month that he was matric so meaning that anyone who is by consensus to be abandoned. I didn't take any of their narrations from them. I did not take any of the narrations from them. So he did have weak narrators in his sermon, but it was done intentionally it was only intentionally right that if

00:41:14--> 00:41:29

the you know he couldn't find another more authentic hadith, then he would use some of their narrations. But anyone that was you know, by consensus week, he would not include them in his book, he would not include them in his book. What else do they want to share with you guys?

00:41:34--> 00:41:44

Then everything else is just you know, technicalities, about Sunon ABI doubt, everything else the technicalities of assuming the widow, let's talk about the fifth of without

00:41:45--> 00:42:00

even time era Hema holla when he comments on the six Imams have Hadith, he said two of them were much the heads and four of them were upon the madhhab of added Hadith. Which ones were which who are the two much the hits? And who are the

00:42:01--> 00:42:03

upon the meta of 100 Hadith?

00:42:04--> 00:42:08

Bukhari and Muslim good guests but that is not correct. Oh, no.

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

No, too much the head and the rest of the four emails are on the motherboard. Hadith.

00:42:20--> 00:42:21

Go ahead.

00:42:22--> 00:42:46

Yes. Fantastic. Did you just like come to that conclusion? Do you think you knew it? That is the answer. So I would say to him Allah. He says the too much the heads out of the group were Imam Bukhari and abou doubt. And the rest of the four Imams of Hadith were upon the madhhab of Al Khalifa upon the madhhab of 100 Hadith. And this is something that you will see insights on and epidote that even though he accompanied

00:42:47--> 00:43:22

Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah, a lot of the times and a lot of his fickle opinions are taken from Mr. Muhammad Smith herb, he did not, you know, restrict Himself to the method. But a lot of the times when he found the opinion incorrect, he would go on and give his own opinion, he'll go on, and given his own opinion, which leads us back to something that I forgot in his the salad to the people of Makkah, he mentioned that he would prefer a weak Hadith over the opinion of an individual over the opinion of an individual. So in a situation where he can't find anything, except for a weak Hadith and the opinion of an individual, you would abandon the opinion of the individual and use the weak

00:43:22--> 00:43:37

Hadith instead. So that was from you know, the faculty member without that even Tamia Rahim Allah considered him to be from the Mooster heads of the Imams mean that he was worthy of having his own month up and worthy of making he had. Another interesting thing

00:43:38--> 00:44:16

about Abu Dhabi is that he talks about his interesting experiences, when he says when he wants to Egypt, he says, I saw in Egypt, two things that I have never seen in my life before. And even when reading this, I find this, you know, I have trouble believing it, but since the Imam said, you know, Inshallah, we will believe it. due to him being trustworthy. He says, I saw a cucumber that was 13 feet long, a cucumber, that was 13 Hands spends long. Now you're like, what's so interesting about that? This is like living in a time where you have like, no hormones are being, you know, injected into the fruits. There's none of that stuff. How do you get a cucumber that's 30 feet long. So that

00:44:16--> 00:44:57

was the first strange thing he saw. The second strange thing that he mentioned, is that he saw two citrus fruits that were the size of Camel humps when they were split in half. So you you know how big a camel hump is? Imagine an orange when it's cut into half. Like that's how big it was. So those are from the strange things that without mentions that he saw in his trip to Egypt, then I will doubt that I'm Hala. I think let's conclude with his death. He passed away in the year 275. He passed away in the year 275. I just want to make sure I have that. Correct. If I'm not mistaken. 275 on the 16th of so well. That is how he passed away. We do not have details as to how he passed away

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

or what exactly happened, but we do know

00:45:00--> 00:45:09

Is that he spent his last days teaching Hadith we spent his last days teaching Hadith. And that is how he had spent the vast majority of his life.

00:45:10--> 00:45:13

In bussola, he died in bussola 16th of Chawan.

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

Go ahead.

00:45:19--> 00:45:27

So during the time of the fifth day Muhammad was imprisoned right. So obviously, it was next to impossible to have studied with him at that time. But this is before the fitna and after the fitna.

00:45:28--> 00:45:29

Did you do anything during

00:45:30--> 00:45:36

Abu Dhabi himself? Allah Allah without himself I don't know. Allahu Allah, Allah Allah. But we do know.

00:45:39--> 00:45:41

Actually, hola, hola. Hola. I don't know.

00:45:42--> 00:46:03

One thing I didn't want to comment on was this book over here. So when I do my research in Arabic, I always compare it to what's available in the English language. And this series is actually a very, very good series like it's a biography of the six Imams of Hadith along with other luminaries of Hadith as well so you have Sofia 30 You have she called Bonnie Rahim Allah, you have

00:46:04--> 00:46:40

a couple of other people who I don't remember as well. For the most part I didn't like what he did with the Imam Muslim I didn't like what he did with nama Timothy Imam Bukhari is good is good, because there's a lot of stories that you won't find in other places, and out of the whole series, the one about a widow is actually the best one for several reasons. Number one is that as there isn't much information about his actual life itself, they brought the necessary information about his life. Number two commentary on his book is quite detailed. So you will bring actual Hadith from cinema without with the commentary that Buddha with gave on that was Hadith to show his actual work.

00:46:40--> 00:47:18

And then number three in terms of Hadith when Imam or without give commentary on certain area narrators, he brings those narrations and shows the commentary to show how, you know knowledgeable Abu Dhabi was in Hadith as well. Most importantly, it talks about issues of al Qaeda. Now you know, we will just issue the scrutiny discussing the issue of the fitna word without stand clearly without stood with Imam Ahmed or him Allah did he vocalize his stance? What did he go through any particular trials? That is something I do not know of? I did not find in any of the books, but clearly affirmed the Aqeedah of Imam Muhammad and there's a detailed discussion on refuting the martyrs ILA and their

00:47:18--> 00:47:40

ideology that people have bothered, as we mentioned, without wrote a particular book refuting the people of other and there's a detailed discussion on that as well in this book. So if you buy any book of the series, I will suggest this is the one to get this was like the best one that I found out of the series so far. Well, Allahu Tana will take questions, and then call it a day inshallah Go ahead.

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


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

is more than five to seven for you.

00:47:50--> 00:48:23

It could be repetitions. So the repetitions were counted. Yes. Second is the difference of narrations of Arab without. So even though it had different errors, like all the famous books of Hadith, like I said, they weren't handed to the students. Here's the book, right. But rather, the man would read the Hadith to them. And the students would write the Hadith down. So if anyone missed a Halacha, they missed the Hadith if they didn't catch it from someone else. So when you look at the different versions of the students that narrated from Abu Dhabi, that is where the discrepancy could take place, that some of them would have less, some of them could have more based upon that.

00:48:25--> 00:48:32

So then the addition of about 905 to seven, four.

00:48:34--> 00:48:36

Yeah, so for example, the

00:48:37--> 00:48:44

total student all the 4800 was right, that you can read on how can that increase maybe closer to the same?

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

So how can we increase in one is that if they encounter

00:48:49--> 00:48:58

when they were counting the Hadith, they included the macabre to those that are repeated. Number two, is that one of the things that Abu Dawood mentions is that he

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

took only the showerhead from the Hadith itself. So there's a longer version of the Hadith, and he only included the shade. So now what the student could have done is that he included a longer version of the Hadith with the side with no itself. So this would include Yes, mentioning the Hadith twice as well. So this would include increase the number of the Hadith as well, Allahu Allah. Basically, what he's saying is that, like three things are being combined and combined together. Number one is that he gave preference to a weak Hadith or the opinion of an individual. Number two, is that all of the Hadith that he mentioned are solidly the judge that there Yeah, for argument's

00:49:35--> 00:49:48

sake, you can use them but it doesn't necessarily mean that the hadith is authentic when there itself and then number three to conclude the discussion is, as long as the chain of narration is there, the burden of proof is upon the person reading it and not the person conveying it.

00:49:50--> 00:49:59

I mean, nowadays it's not very you know, powerful at all I could give it like anyone could be given the chain of narration, they're like, What do I do with this? Right? But as someone like without and you know, it

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

Understanding who he's presenting the book to, is very, very powerful that hey, I've given you the chain of narration. You do your due diligence now that you know why are you even studying my book if you don't know what the narrators are,

00:50:10--> 00:50:12

versus when we compare like,

00:50:14--> 00:50:22

yeah, he made sure that the narration there was no upgrade for no gap. Why was

00:50:23--> 00:50:48

not as thorough. So the issue of here isn't being thorough. It's about what is the objective behind writing the book. So a man would book it, he wanted to compile everything that was authentic. Mmm, no doubt he wanted to compile all the proofs that the scholars have filled us to justify their opinions, right. And a lot of the times it is weak Hadith. So he would choose the strongest out of the weak Hadith that he could find and include it in his site, or sorry, included in his sunnah

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

or Yak.

00:50:51--> 00:50:52

For the

00:50:56--> 00:51:24

will allow you to either I will not hold the I hide the number, but I don't remember it offhand. Generally if I check my notes inside the office, I'll be able to give you the exact number. Allahu Taala and one of the good things about the English versions now is that they will actually give you the ruling on the Hadith itself. So when you look at the English version that has the ruling on the Hadith, inside of it, Fed will conclude with that panicle the whole behind the shadow lie like that stuck out to you like
