jihadi Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Marina de deserting de la Vega in Bala Haku lalala Tiffany cynefin Now,
one of the great imams of the cellar by the name of Sophia Anna 30 Rahim Allah has made a profound statement where he said that indeed the angels are the protectors and the guardians of the heavens and the skies. And indeed it is the scholars of Hadith. Who are the protectors and the guardians of this religion? No keeping this statement in mind. I will collected the first years when I was at the University of Medina. And remembered the first book of Hadith that we studied was the book of emammal vokalia Rahim Allah.
And as we took this book, we took the biography of the man, and I was truly amazed. You know, with this book, my enthusiasm for studying Hadith increased. And in my mind, I thought that when Sharla when I have children, I want my children to be like a malleable honey. So I thought with that in mind that today would be an ideal day to take the life of the amendment Buhari. As we know the book of record is the most authentic book after the Koran and his or his biography requires a bit more time than all the other biographies, which will be which we will be taking on Sunday, the schedule is as follows that we're taking an introduction to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam, and the second and third lectures will be most people that preserve the Sunnah of the prophets of Allah Hanuman send them so in then we will be taking the authors of the six books of Hadith from them is the moment of Bukhari email Muslim attend me, the Buddha would say,
whereas the life of Mongolia, as I mentioned, requires a bit more time. So I thought we would dedicate a separate lecture to it, as there are a lot more benefits or for why related to it. So firstly, starting with the name, email and ohanian.
He was Abdullah Mohammed
al Bukhari. And he was born in the month of chawan, in the year 194. Now, the birth of a mobile phone he
was born as your regular child, born into this world with two parents. And as he grew older, around the age of three, his father passed away. Now, before actually getting into the life of the mother body, let us take a brief look at the life of his father, as the role of the Father, in the life of a child is something magnificent, you know, a child who is usually born without both parents, they usually considered to have an abnormal life or normal aptitude, or as you see, in the case of a moment, we'll have a moment of silence is not the case. But again, let's take a brief look at the life of the father of Imam Bukhari. So who was the lady who was the father of the moment because he
didn't know his name.
And as mentioned is,
the father of melancholy was
now one of the great scholars of Hadith, by the name of lipner have done, he has a book called a circuit. And in this book is a part who mentioned all of the narrator's from the time of the turbine, up until his time were considered trustworthy, meaning that they are reliable in the sense of Hadith and you can narrate from them. And in this book of his he mentioned, the father of the amount of money, the smile enabled on him, and he mentioned that he was a trustworthy scholar of Heidi, and he was someone who was renowned
For his knowledge, and likewise, he was also someone who Allah subhanho wa Taala had blessed with a lot of wealth, meaning that he was a successful businessman.
And in this portion when discussing his business, he mentions a profound statement. and in it he mentions that the most beloved thing to me is my family. And just like I love for myself that I only take that which is hidden from the risk of a loss.
Likewise, I love for my family that they should have nothing but a lot of risk. So he was someone who was more cautious in his business transactions. And you see that this indirectly had an effect on the life of the amount of money, as we know from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam narrated by
the prophets of Allah, one who seldom said, rhetorically and routinely, but how will Allah subhanho wa Taala answer the door of a person whose food is heaven and is worthless, and then he takes his hat on. So we know that there is a dimension to our wealth, and to our risk, which is considered from the meaning that a man may have $10 and another man we have $10. But this first man is able to do with his $10 by choice the second mankind, and is what we call mother can mean that the blessing that Allah subhanaw taala puts in it. So the role of the father of money was something huge, meaning that his fear of not taking was just wrong. And him being cautious about this had an influence on
the male body indirectly, meaning that through his fear, Allah subhanaw taala placed extra Barranca and again, we will see this later on, in
as you continue with the Labour Party, Halima McCauley was blessed with this wealth, when he made such a statement that I spent each month after he started his study of religious knowledge. But I spent each month
in seeking of knowledge, either in buying books, or either in traveling or either supporting another student of knowledge who doesn't have the money. So we've seen that the bank and one's wealth goes a long way. But again, it starts off with our parents. And likewise, when we one day become parents, our children will be affected by the way we earned ours as well, and the way we live our lives as well. And another relationship that we can establish over here is how a child will look up to his father. And what we mean by this is that if you look at a lot of the scholars of Hadith, a lot of their parents were scholars or, and righteous people. So when you think about how you want your
children to become righteous, one of the best ways to do this is to set an example for them. Don't expect a sweet fruit from a sour tree, meaning that if you
plant the seeds of righteousness and the seeds of sweetness, likewise, the fruit will be sweet. So everything starts with your own self. If you want your children to be righteous, which children will look up to you, and they will follow you and they will emulate your way. So set that example for them. Take them to the masjid while they're young, and you yourself go to the masjid and likewise with them, teach them how to please the lady and the age and the importance of salon and likewise included them in your other acts of worship. don't exclude them. A lot of us have this idea that you know, up until the age of 10. We're not going to bring our children to the masjid. This type of
ideology or this type of understanding is something which is totally incorrect. the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to bring their children to the masjid at all times. Take the ideal example of enhancing and emphasizing about your love of Thailand, the grandchildren of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. It is mentioned in this remarkable email in Mohali
that one day, he delayed the frustration in salon for such a long time that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had passed away in his salon. So after waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam finally gets a substitute. And the answer in the afternoon Salah Jada similar What was it that caused you to delay your Salah or your sister for so long to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that unwholesome and unforeseen were preying on me, and they didn't want to disturb the plane. So I deleted my sister until they were done. And that's when this was the aptitude, or the main hedge of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
that a lot of us when we see children playing in the machine, we get angry sometimes to such a degree that we'll even hit them. But this is not the way to teach our children, have mercy with them, be kind to them, be gentle with them and raise them upon softness and inshallah they will grow up to be righteous and obedient individuals. So this was the father of the Monroe County and the two characteristics we established from your work that he was a scholar of had the endless amount of money even though he only passed away
have three Mr. mcquarry retained this memory and likewise followed in his footsteps. And point number two was that the father of enamel McQuarrie was a businessman who feared Allah subhanaw taala. And abstain from those transactions that had any doubts. And he abstained from cheating people. And that's the only took in income, which was Hannon. And this last panel, Jana put Baraka or blessing in that wealth. And thus, remember mcquoddy, as we will come to see, was sustained through the wealth of his father, even though he passed away at the age of three.
So now How did the childhood of email vokalia him Allah tala pass and goodbye
obviously became to be known as a very famous scholar. And when you become very famous, and you know, you busy yourself with him and with knowledge, you don't have the time to do everything you'd like to do. And one of these things was waiting, he
didn't have time to rate. So what he did was he hired what they call a warlock, or a person with a strike, price down everything you say. And his name was Muhammad Ali has been the son of the great scholar of Manhattan.
So Muhammad Ali heighten when he was with email body One day, he asks him, you know, how did you affair in seeking knowledge begin what happened. So he mentioned that I was at the age of 10, that he was sitting in the masjid. And he was listening to these scholars have had these. And he had this natural condition and memorizing what they were saying that he was able to retain everything they said, you know, to a very extensive degree, and very accurately and very meticulously, so by the age of 10, he said, after I attended some of these halaqaat, I started picking up the books, and he started reading and I started memorizing, and by the age of 10, I'd finished memorizing the books of
ignorant mobarak. And
we're great amounts of their own time. So one of the things we learned from this particular point is the importance of understanding and memorizing. When you look at the difference between the Scholastic education between the East and the West, we noticed one profound difference. And that is the emphasis that is portrayed on memorizing the east. Meaning that when you study in the east, a lot of emphasis is put upon memorizing that all the books that you have, the vast majority of the things you're required to memorize, you won't get anywhere without memorizing. Whereas education in the West, a lot of it is theoretical understanding that as long as you understand the concepts
pertaining to it, then you're able to do well in school. And as a Muslim, or as an educator, you will come to see that when you have your own children or when you give power to people, or even if you you know, become a teacher in a school, that the best way to teach people is to give them both, but you emphasize memorizing and as well as emphasizing understanding, and one thing you will come to realize is that true understanding cannot come except with memorizing. And this is why almost no
one when he talks about the Quran, this is in the footsy. And in regular it 30 prophets a lot of seminaries that he talks about the people of understanding, it is usually people who have memorized it, as we see in the Hadith of the vegetal without the pharaoh pilgrimage of the prophets, Allah it was certain that he said that those of you who hear it, then pass it on to those of those to those people who weren't present. And one of the variations of this Hadith, the prophet SAW Allah, he mentioned how that a person may hear something and relate it to someone who has a better understanding than him. And does he know he may pursue this understanding or get to that
understanding that Allah has blessed him with. So again, this understanding of the mammal body, his understanding of it didn't come despite reading and, you know, learning the names of the narrators and devising formulas of the narrators, which can be done, you know, you know, unless you have programs where you put in the names of the narrators, and I'll tell you if it's authentic or not, was not how he did it. at the young age, he started memorizing the books of Hadith. Now, another thing to keep in mind was that the scholars of the past they didn't pursue the knowledge of other sciences, either or, or, or, you know, extend extensive studying of the law until they had memorized
the Quran. Every single scholar of the past, emphasize first on memorizing the Quran, as it is the most noble books and it is the most truest of speech and it is the very simple
These are creators of Hannah Montana. So this is what every single scholar would begin with. And this is what each and every parent would induce into the children and make them enthusiastic to learn.
Now, before we continue with this point I actually met forgot a very important point. And that was the mother of a man. Nobody
was born he was born with good eyesight. But as he grew older, his eyesight began to weaken to such a degree that he became blind. And this disturbed his mother, you know, to a very painful degree, to such a degree that she would cry and act Allah subhanaw taala all the time, but no prayer would pass, not a time when she knew that it would be nicer to press except that she may do it for her son, that he will have his eyesight back or it should that it should be returned to him. So one day while she was sleeping,
she narrates that Yvonne he managed the honey lavalas panels on the normal Prophet was also known as the father of the MBR or the father of the prophets came to her in the dream. And he said to her, that Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala has heard your call meaning he has heard your supplication and it is due to your extensive cry, and your extensive supplication that today your two hour will be answered. And when she awoke the eyesight of Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah Allah was returned. And like we mentioned, today's lecture, and today's topic is all the lessons we can derive from the life of Mr. mcquarry. So one of the lessons that we derive from this is the importance of supplicating
for our family members, and especially for our children, that each and every one of us wants success for our children. One of the best ways to do it, is to supplicate for them, as Allah subhanaw taala answers the door of the parents for their children. And this is something which we see from the library mobile money, there's something brief like losing your eyesight, where people will have surgery upon surgery upon surgery to try to fix and cure a muscle panel and affixed to the door of the mother. So this is another important lesson. So now getting back to the age of 10. He mentions that at the age of 10. And this was obviously after having memorized the Quran, he said, I memorize
so now at the age of 11, no, this is a wonderful conversation that he's having with
a scribe. This a series of questions and answers, I guess you could say that they're continuing this discussion. And so how many of us know and what happened next? What did you do next? And he mentioned at the age of 11, he started sitting with scholars and becoming their students, meaning that it would stick to them as much as he could, he would choose a shift in the mission and attend all his halaqaat and all of his dose. So one of the scholars that he stuck to, was a scholar by the name of a deputy. That was his name, definitely. So one day while he was sitting in this dose of a devotee, and then he mentioned a headache. And when we study a Hadith, you know, that has two parts
to it, the mountain and descendant, the mountain is actually the actual statement of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, by the famous headache. Armando mania, that actions are but by intentions, this would be called the mention of the headaches, then you have the sentence of headaches. And the center of the headache is the chain of narrators. So the cheerleaders for this headache, you have
to allow us to
20 and so on. So all these people are considered the narrator's or the what they call the ones, which is the problem and the singer is.
So the green m&m or the teacher remember, nobody does and he was mentioning I had a and when he got to the Senate, he said that Ibrahim narrated from Abu Zubaydah who narrated from Sophia and so when he heard this, he rebuked a chef and he said, You know, this hadith was not narrated in this form, or manner. Now imagine an 11 year old kid, it's like one of these children in the back coming up to me right now, and saying that, you know, what you're seeing is incorrect. Obviously, this would be, you know, astounding to a lot of people. But where is this child come from? Who does he think he is? That you have an old man in his 60s, and then you have a party at the age of 11 would be leading the
shift and scholar. So you know, nobody being very persistent. He said, what you have said is incorrect, and kept on challenging the sheet.
To a certain degree, we said that if you don't believe what I'm saying that your Senate or your generation is incorrect, then go back to your books and see what is it what it said. So obviously, definitely being challenged by this child, in a way takes it quite seriously. And he goes back to his library and bits of the book. And then he looks in the book, and he notices that what Mr. Bahari said was correct. And it wasn't narrated by abusive and so now remember that he wants to get revenge and
he's like, okay, fine, you know, so it wasn't Elizabeth, why don't you tell me who it was 11 year old kid might have been a fluke. He got it right. When he, you know, he wasn't your average child. Allah subhanho wa Taala had raised him to a high degree even at this young age. So now, he said that this hadith was narrated by Abu Zubaydah son, and not well visible. So they're all in, you know, adaptively became very impressed with the amount of money and he got him to check all of his works and attend to all this and correct him wherever he made mistakes.
So life was on fire for the Malibu party, and he continues his discussion with Mohammed Nabi Hutton. And he goes on to tell him that at the age of 16, he went to make hikes with his mother and his brother. Cory had a brother named Ahmed, whom we know nothing about, except for this one story that at the age of 16, email in Makati went out with him and their mother, and they made Hajj and when a man when he was 16. So at the age of 16, his mother knew that you know, Amanda mcquoddy, wasn't your average child and raised his status and had blessed him.
taala says, at the end of sort of magenta, we'll find out
that Allah subhanaw taala will raise amongst most people who have been granted knowledge and have been granted human
reason instance. So this was
a moment of quality. So when I recognized this, and when they went to the land of hedges, no Mecca, Medina, boy and Jeddah had these areas, she noticed that he had this natural inclination for hunting. And she said, You know, this is something you'd like to do, why don't you stay behind? Why don't you stay behind and study with the scholars over here? now know the average mother at the age of 16. She wouldn't trust her child to, you know, take care of his own affairs. At the age of 16. Many of our parents will reach the age of 19 2021, even 22. And we're still skeptical to give us $20 we don't know what he's gonna do with it. When the mother Adama if America very memorable party
showed that trust showed that trust in the amount of money and said why don't you stay behind take this bag of wealth and stay behind they take care of yourself and support yourself and study with the scholars over here. So at the age of 16 email Buhari studied with the scores of agents. Now this is another turning point or milestone in the life of emammal, honey, that at the age of 16, in Makati is being exposed to the concept of traveling. Now, why do I call traveling a concept as you will come to see when you study the biographies of many scholars of the past, that all of them traveled for the sake of knowledge, none of them to the state in their cities, and we're sufficed
with it, but rather they wanted to go to the very cities and Study with the Best of the scholars. So this is another interesting point over here, that when studying a science, or studying any form of knowledge, one should always go to the best of the people. And the reason why we say this is because not only will you be good, it will be what do you mean learning from the most educated and the most proficient person in that science, but also you will be exposed to various things, various cultures, various personalities, various manners for the people, and thus This will open and expand your understanding of people your understanding of the implementation of the deen and will also increase
you in patience and perseverance. And it's something which is very important for the student of knowledge that you will not become a true student of knowledge until you have gone through trials and struggles. And until you are in situations where you have to implement that patience and overcome your what you desire. So this is something very important and Amanda Hamilton was exposed to this at the age of 16 when he traveled with his mother for height, and he stayed with the scholars of ages for approximately two years until he returned to his family. So now
continue the discussion with Mohammed anatomy. hearten. He says, Then at the age of 18, I wrote my first book. Now imagine that, at the age of 10, he started memorizing books at the age of 16. He had studied with the scholars of his locality in his area, and then went through the lens of ages, and studied with them as well. And now at the age of 80, is waiting Atari
has written numerous books. from them, four are the most famous of them, who have his agenda safe, which is his body,
then you have a technical career. Now, a technical career is a book of history. But it's not how we understand history, when you study history in the West, will just give you a summary of what took place a summary of the events and tell you how things happened. But when you look at the books of history in Islam, especially amongst the early generations, we used to narrate history, just like they used to narrate the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So they would say hi def enough on her death in a fallen, fallen, meaning and so and so narrated to me so and so narrated to me, and so they were to me, that they saw such and such happen. So it was a very meticulous and
articulate way of preserving history. And this is what ohana Rahim Allah tala did when he wrote his study from Kabir. In it, he compiled the names of all the companions, and who the children were. And he compiled all the events, or all the major historical events that took place in their times. And one of the things he did in this technical career is that he mentioned the name, he used to criticize the narrator's of the idea that as we know, in our times, not everyone is at the same level of reliability, something that let's just say, you know, a scholar tells you doesn't hold the same weight as something. We know your elementary school teacher tells you, the about Islam, that's
to say, Now, the educate the shift, or the scholar, he's educated, he spent his whole life studying this, we're as your elementary school teacher when he talks about Islam. You know, she probably just read one textbook before she actually started getting the does. So the level of certainty obtained for the in understanding this knowledge is at a higher degree when you take it from a shift in comparison to your elementary school teacher.
what he did and how we're relating this to the point is when he mentioned these points of history, and when he mentioned the stories, you mentioned that he mentioned, he mentioned them in cinema in such a way that the Hadith are preserved as well, meaning that it was through a chain of narrators. So if in the story, there was a narrator, who is weak, he would mention that, you know, so and so is weak. And if there's a new leader, who was of a very high level, the likes of an ozai or Azadi, or Mr. Mallika would mention something about them as well mean that he was an imam of Hadith, or that he was a very reliable Neary. Narrator So Mr. McCarney compiled this masterpiece at the age of 18.
So that was the second famous book that Mr. mcquarry wrote before a third famous book that Mr. Gokhale compiled was an other
and this book a lot of value for it. In it, he compiled a book of etiquettes meaning that anything that you could find from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and companions, pertaining to etiquettes of eating and drinking and sleeping and how to be with the people in Makati put it in this book, and he called it other friends. And the fourth book which
attained you know, a level of famous tennis, I guess you could say was
a bad or the creation of the actions of mankind.
Now, the story behind this book is very, very interesting. That as we will see, towards the ending of the life of Emmanuel Buhari or him Hello, Tada. There was a great fitna going on, in which the people were testing other people. And this was pertaining to was the quote on the speech of Allah subhana wa Tada. Something created or something not created, obviously, is a very deep
issue, which we won't get into too much detail, but the opinion of the sinner and all the scores of the past and present will follow the way of the Sahaba were the Allahu taala and whom have agreed that the Quran is the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala and it's something uncreated. And over time, this methodology was not preserved, but rather the more intensively school of thought
came into power in the philosopher. So when the school of thought came into the Philippines, they were against this saying that the Quran is not the speech of Allah subhana wa Tada, our sorry, the code is the speech of Allah subhanaw taala. But not the way we understand the meaning that Allah didn't speak it, it is something created, it is from the understanding of gibreel and from the understanding of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this is something which is inaccurate. So now when this came to power,
they started promoting and propagating this methodology of the Quran being created, and it hit its peak during the time of Imam Ahmed. And this is why, you know, the famous fitna that Emma went to went through before his death was the fitna of the Quran, or the creation of the Quran. And likewise, it continued to progress until the time of email Buhari email, McQuarrie passed away in 256, as we'll get to inshallah, and he
passed away in 241. So there's a difference of 15 years in between them. So now, as you will notice that in any science or in any field, things always progress and make this fit now that took place it progressed as well, before it was just amongst the monitors enough, and the scores of 100 sooner, but then it progressed into the scores of 100 center itself, that they deferred that is it okay to say that my restitution is created? Or is one not allowed to say this as well? So in Malta, Allah He was one day asked that What did you say about the recitation of the Quran? Is it created or is it not created, to which he mountable what he said that my recitation of the Quran is created, but that
which is recited is not created. And then he wrote this famous book called Hulk abandon a bird, meaning that every single action that we do as humans, it is created. And again, this is related to ponder.
We won't get into too much detail of it. But to take a brief understanding of how this is possible, you know how it is Allah subhanho wa Taala created me holding the cup, or how does he create me holding the pen.
The concept of creation, with the last panel to Allah is in two ways depending on how you're looking at it, that which he does with a wasp or mean that he does with intermediary, and that which he does without an intermediary. So you take the example of Adam and his son, Adam and Sam, he didn't have any parents, right? There was no one before either Madison, in terms of human beings. So Allah subhanaw taala created him without any parents, meaning that there was no intermediary, Allah subhanaw taala created him with his own two hands, as he mentioned in the Quran. Now, each and every one of us, we all submit to the fact that Allah Subhana Allah, Allah created us, but how did Allah
subhana wa, under create us, it was with a was or with an intermediary, meaning that Allah subhanaw taala blessed us with parents, our parents to brought together and we were a result of that act. So we will create it with an intermediary. So this is just a brief understanding of how the Krishna was handled, and it takes place. So likewise, if you will agree that we came through an intermediary, then Allah Subhana, WA, tada,
created this moment of this pen, for me mean that
he has the ability to move this pen. But Allah subhanaw taala chose out of his divine wisdom to make the movement of this pen through me. So that's almost created the movement of the pain as well, through an intermediary. Again, it's a very complicated subject requires a lot of understanding a lot of details, but this is just a brief breakdown of it.
So now, as we mentioned in the life of the mind, body, this discussion with Mohammed Abu Dhabi has and it continues, and how many dinner we had him, he asks him, what was it? Sorry, who are the people who influenced you the most and who were the people whom you held in high esteem. Now, the great scholars that email nobody studied with were many. At the end of the discussion with Mohammed Abdullah Mahajan, he mentioned that I studied with 1080 scholars of Hadith. And all of them said that he man his statement and speech and it increases and decreases. Now the other part of it is protect our data. But let us focus on the first part of the statement where he said, I studied with
1080 scholars of Hadith, meaning that putting the scholars of Tafseer aside putting the scholars that are putting the scores aside, just with the scores of ad he studied with 1080 of them. So from the prolific scholars that he studied with, and again, these are biographies that we should all study and we should all take the time.
Time to learn and all, I take the time to emulate the waste as well. Were the likes of a man who died in 241. He established his own method is very, very well known and renowned. There are books written about him in his biography and his biography as well. Then you have the likes of mine, another big scholar, and you have a liberal Maddie and other bit scholar Heidi was the person who influenced him or had the greatest influence him, influence over him. And even though it doesn't state this, but you can see it in his way of writing, and his way of speaking, and even the highly esteemed that he held him it was, it's by a scholar by the name of his half a novel Hawaii. Now it's
happening in Hawaii. The interesting story with him is that just like the other four times as we know them hanifa Imam Malik and Mama Shafi, any management of him, or him, Allah Hosanna, he had a mother of his own. He is one of the scholars who had reached such a high level, and used to teach the people to such a degree that he eventually established his own with him. But due to, you know, his mental not been spread
amongst those people who have carried it on and to other reasons as well, his mother doesn't exist in our time study. So this hakimullah, Hawaii, this great email of Heidi and an email, and practically any other science, you can think of had a great influence over email nobody to such a degree that is talking about how he was one day sitting. And he said, No, it would be nice if someone took the time to compile a book of Sahih Hadith only. Now, this is just a thought that is talking about how he had he said that it would be nice if someone would take the time to compile all this, I had to compile a book of just hide the
quality of our human lives. And I held the scholar in such great esteem and revered him so much that he didn't want this wish of his to go unfulfilled. So he took it upon himself to compile his safe, so that we see the great esteem that nobody can demand. Now, another point to delve upon over here is the statement
that he studied with 1080 different scholars have.
Now what is the benefit of that?
One of the benefits that we can derive from this fact is that when you study with different scholars, you will notice that they have different speciality, they have different approaches, and different understandings of things. And this is what we learn from the diversity of our scholars that you will notice and pick up something from one scholar, which you won't find in another scholar, and you will learn something from another scholar, which you will not find in another scholar. Now learning is not just about the facts that they teach you. But learning is also in the way they deal with people and also the way they deal with questions, and also the way they deal with
scenarios. Now you take a famous example that if not by him, or him alongside I mentioned about Mr. Mohammed, you mentioned that 50,000 people used to come to the halaqaat or the legends of amendment or a Hema Houma, la mahalo Tana. And out of this 50,000, only 5000 of them would be writing, only 5000 of them would be writing the rest of them, we're there to learn from the adapt and the luck of the management. So when people came to learn from these great scholars, they didn't just come to learn facts about Islam, and different ruins of Islam, but rather they came to learn how to interact with the people and how to treat the people and how to deal with people. So 45,000 people came to
learn to code came to learn this from him, let alone all the other knowledge that almost panatela had blessed him with. So this is point number one that we learned from the diversity of scholars. Point number two is that you will notice that as human beings, Allah subhanaw taala has created within us deficiencies, that almost panatela will sometimes cause us to have a lapse in memory, or what sometimes causes us to misunderstand things. And this is just to show the perfection of Allah subhana wa Tada. But Allah anodyne is perfect, and each and every way, and he shows this through the deficiencies of mankind, that the Creator is perfect, yet the creation has its deficiencies and is
imperfect in one way.
And this is one of the benefits of studying with various scholars is that you know, you will come across similar issues, you know, let's just take the example of
reading the Koran does one need will do for it or not. You will find one scholars say that yes, there's consensus that you need to recite
To touch them with the Quran and recite it, whereas you will find in other scholars say no, the correct opinion is that you do not need to judge the Quran and recite it. So, for the diversity of scholars, you make yourself open to differences to a difference of opinions, and you open your mind to differences. Whereas if you just stick with one scholar throughout time, even though you may get all this knowledge, you will not be exposed to different understandings and different approaches, and you will become a person who is very rigid. So this shows the importance of going to different scholars and learning from them. Now, even though we may not to learn human even though you may not
learn something new from this individual should always take the time to study with a person whom Allah subhana wa tada has blessed to acknowledge. And this is seen from some of the famous statements of our Center for our predecessors, that they used to say that you will not be a true either, until you've done three things. And this was pertaining to seeking knowledge, that you have sought knowledge with those who are more knowledgeable than you. And you have sought knowledge with those who are equal to you, and you have sought knowledge with those who are below you. Now, if you look at the wisdom behind this, may find this something very profound, that in the statement, you
seek knowledge with those who are more knowledgeable than you, meaning that you humble yourself to knowledge and recognize the fact that even though Allah subhanaw taala may have given you some knowledge, that there are people who are more knowledgeable than you, so you become humbled to them, and you become humbled to knowledge. And again, this is something very interesting, then I shall
learn from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, she said that when the ayah in Surah, Yusuf was revealed revealed, will focus
on him that on top of every possessor of knowledge, is the most knowledgeable is an immediate Allah subhanaw taala. She said, with this revolution of this ayah were ordered to put people in their proper places, meaning that you recognize the level of the people that there are people who are more knowledgeable than you. And the most knowledgeable, or the most knowledgeable of all of them is Allah subhana wa Tada, so humble yourself in front of him the most, because he knows the innermost details of what you do, and the innermost details of what you have said and what you think. And likewise, he knows that what you do openly as well. So that is point number one, that you recognize
those people who are more knowledgeable than you, and you humble yourselves in front of them, and you learn from them. And likewise, those people who are at the same level of view, what do we understand and benefit from this, a similar point, meaning that there are people who are at the same level of you as you, meaning that there are other people who have studied similar sciences and have gone to similar Institute's and studied similar knowledge. So Allah subhanho wa Taala, has put them at a similar level to you. And this is something that we saw in the time of emailed him, Allah Allah, that he had a Muslim as a companion. And likewise, he had Imam eternity as a companion. Now
these people were contemporaries of Emanuel Hari, he died for five or 10 years after him with a male body still married from them. And he learned from them to such a degree that he said to me, Timothy, that I have benefited from you just as much as you have benefited from me. Now, this is something interesting to note, because email because
he doesn't narrate for me ma'am attend within a safe. Whereas if you look at the sun and or the compilation of the number 10, maybe you will see that so more than often does a mammoth in telemovie narrate from a mountain body. So the people asked him, you know, when you made the statement to amendment tell me that you benefited from him just as much as he benefited from you. What did you mean by this? Toshima Buhari, he said that I benefited from the desert and the water.
That I benefited from the asceticism, and had benefited from the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala that a mammoth in many had learned to be humble, he learned to be a person who didn't love the dunya to a extensive degree. So again, getting back to our point at hand, that in order to become an idol, you will likewise have to seek knowledge with those people who are at the same level as you that you will learn from them, they will learn from you, you benefit you memorize, and you remind one another. And likewise, the last point is that you seek knowledge with those people who are a lower level than you, meaning that you show an exemplary status in front of them, meaning that you show
that Alice has blessed you with knowledge and you remind them of where they may be incorrect. And likewise, you reminded by what they have to say, and again, this is another lesson and being humble. A lot of times we may think that you know Allah subhana wa tada has blessed us with so much knowledge
We've grown our beards, we raised our parents, we're praying our family. And now when our parents speak about Islam, that Oh, you're old, you know, you didn't learn anything about Islam. We're very condescending towards them. We don't hold them in high esteem. And we should think that, you know, Allah Spano, Jana gave us more knowledge than he gave them. But this is not a methodology that a Muslim should have. But rather, he looks up to anyone who Allah subhanaw taala has blessed you with knowledge, and you use them, and he wasn't in high status, especially once parents. So next time when our parents say something about Islam, don't belittle them would rather hear what they have to
say, if they're correct, and encourage them to study more if they're incorrect. Here's the perfect opportunity to guide them to that which is correct. So that was in the life of email nobody up until the age of 18. So we mentioned some of the scholars who
had studied with, you mentioned the likes of Mr. Mohammed, and Alabama, Dini and your Hemingway and more specifically, a sacramental highway. Now how about the students of Imam Al Bukhari?
Likewise, just as you mentioned, and now from 1080 people, remember the hubby. He mentioned that 14,000 different people narrated from him on the body, meaning that 40,000 different people narrated a hadith from Mr. mcquarry.
Now, before proceeding on another important point, which we need to draw upon, is where am I getting these facts and statistics from? You know, a lot of times people will tell the stories, what we don't know what we get when they get their stories from. When studying the life of emammal Bukhari There are two main sources that a person needs to refer to. The first of them is this book over here, Steve novella by Amazon.
Now what he did in this book is he compiled the biographies of all the famous people who lived from the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam up until his time, meaning that he included the companions and every other single, famous person that may that may have become known between those times. So the way he categorized this book is that he cared, categorized into four buckets or different levels, that it's not really generations, but levels in terms of timeframes of where they lived. So in normal Buhari is mentioned in the 12th debacle, so if you go to the 12th volume, this is where emammal Buhari is mentioned. So this is a very important reference point, not only for
human bodies specifically, but generally when you want to study the biographies of any great Imam, you refer to this book, Sian Amendola, another important reference point for the life of human body is the first of all, you have total body. As we mentioned, sample quality was an extensive piece of work that energy components are hiding, and is hold in high esteem amongst Muslims, and more specifically amongst the scholars. So when the scholars saw this great and magnificent piece of work by Mama, Connie, they took it upon themselves to explain this book. And one of the greatest explanations ever written for any book of Heidi is fertile birdie by Alice Kalani. And what
he did was that in the very beginning of his explanation, he compiled what he referred to by himself as had you study or the guidance of the traveler.
And in this he mentioned the biography of him and Buhari and certain points of benefit pertaining to his book. So, these are two important reference points. And likewise, you know, for those of you who have been blessed with the Arabic language, you should go back to these books and learn for yourself and remind yourself of that, which is being said today. So, these are two main reference points, where the Why say 99% of my information is coming from. So this is the life of Makati, and we mentioned his two teachers and now we will just get into his students. Now as well, his students, we mentioned that I remember we mentioned in Sierra Nevada, the 40,000 people narrated from him I'm
sorry, the most prolific of them was a Muslim, the author and compiler of Sai Muslim. And from them, you also have a limited milli, Abu Mohammed, Isa, Timothy. And likewise, you have our abdomen and the sorry, the compiler of the sinner, cc that three out of the famous six books of their authors were students of emammal Bacardi. So this is the great influence he had over them and likewise, the
There are other famous scholars as well, the likes of Mohammed Al Pacino and Abu Bakar.
These are, you know, Mr. Lupo, he had a lot of famous students. And this is another interesting important and important point to delve upon, is that one of the characteristics of an island is that he doesn't keep knowledge to himself. He always is always enthusiastic to share his knowledge with his students, when whenever he gets an opportunity, he's reminding the people, and whenever he gets an opportunity, he's teaching the people and whenever he gets an opportunity, he's guiding the people to some sort of good or forbidding them from some sort of wrongs. And you notice that the greatest of scholars usually had the greatest of students from the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi
wasallam, you had Abu Bakar armor of man and Danny and the rest of the Sahaba, the best of mankind from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and onward with consensus, no doubt about it. And then from the likes of the Malibu party, you had the Muslim amendment amendment, the SE Zaman and other demands as well, then you don't get the likes of even say me or him or Latina, who have a metal claim, you have a theory you have a theory, you have a mentor, have you had
all these people influenced by even taymiyah. So what are the signs again, of which scholarship is developing good students as well, then again, we keep mentioning that knowledge is not is not just about giving facts and information to individuals, but rather, it is nurturing the people and developing them and building them up in such a way that they likewise will go on to spread the message that you have taught them. This is what true scholarship is about. It is not just about spreading facts and information alone.
Now, as it is getting close to our time to end, let's just skip forth and get to the death of a memorable quality about him a hula hoop saga.
Now the death of Mr. McCartney is indeed a very, very sad one. As we mentioned,
as you mentioned, that
when Mr. mcquarry lived, the fitna of the cultural Quran, or the creation of the Quran, was reaching its peak amongst the scholars of the center, where they were testing and trying each other with the statement that they will go and ask, What is your opinion on the recitation of the Quran? or What is your opinion on the length of the Quran? Is it something created? Or is it something not created? So now, the methodology of the earliest scholars meaning Imam Ahmed, and you're human, you're just Victor was that they would stick to the fact and say that the Quran is not created. It is the speech of Allah subhanaw taala. And it wouldn't dwell any further than that was the Malibu quality, he took
it to the next step, he will say that the Quran is the speech of Allah subhana wa Tada. And my recitation of the Quran is created, but those words that I speak are not created. So when the scholars heard this, they were dumbfounded. They were like, this is not the methodology that were brought up upon by Imam Muhammad. So they likewise when they heard this, they abandoned.
China, now in our times, may not make much sense. But looking at looking at it, looking at it from a timeframe, when the Sunnah is prevalent, the index of Islam are everywhere. For one man to bring what they considered a deviancy at the time was something huge, and they had the luxury of abandoning this man hoping that he would return to guidance and hoping that Allah subhanaw taala would bring him back to the truth. And this is what the point was abandoning the people back then, was this concept of abandoning people and making hundreds of people, it's not something which is easily as easily applicable in our times today, that when someone makes a mistake, we don't have the
luxury of offending them, but rather, it is upon us to guide them and remind them and stick to them. Because in our times, if you abandon people, more than likely they will go even more astray. And this is one of two ways that they will go and start learning from people have DVDs, or and at the same time, they will start disliking the people of the truth as well. So we don't have that luxury of abandoning people. Whereas the time of the moment,
we had that luxury sooner was prevalent, and they could abandon people and hope that they will come back to the truth, because the people have degrees went to that many, and they were well known, and we will not go and study with them. So when the moment
came, when this new statement that the Quran is not created, it is the speech of Allah subhanaw taala and that which I recite, or so you might say my recitation of the Quran is created. What are the words which I would say are not created, people were dumbfounded. They were like this great Imam has deviated and again, there were certain intervals
Those who are jealous of the mammal body.
And let us know get into this into a bit more detail was a great score ID in the support
by the name of yahia
is a great amount.
Again, maybe at the likes of email and mahadi and Mohammed and others other than he had a son, who was named Mohammed Ibrahim, who was a contemporary of email Buhari and Muhammad Ali being a contemporary of Imam of Buhari, who would try to compete with Imam Al Bukhari as much as he could. And Imam barely mentioned this in Ceylon novella when Mohammed bin Yahya was always competing with Emmanuel Bukhari. And it is not true when you compete with someone that at times you will get jealous of them as well. So you will mention something bad about them. So Mohammed Ali is fitna happened and it reached its peak that emammal Buhari was saying this new statement was the scars of
the past did not say, he said, Now is my time to take Bocconi down. Now is my time to shine amongst the scholars of Hadith. So he took the statement of equality, and what he misinterpreted as I spread it amongst the people. So in his halaqaat, then Hamid, Hassan halaqaat. He took it and he spread the statement and said that a party has deviated so abandon him. So slowly, slowly, but surely, the people eventually started abandoning email and to such a degree that the moment Buhari says that only two people were left with me from the phenomenal man from the sheikh, from the scholars and from the source of knowledge, only two people were made with him. from them were Muslim, a judge or
a Muslim, the author of the site, and from them was Muhammad Aslam, another student of knowledge. These are the only two people who stuck by emammal Buhari at this time. So now you can imagine, at one point in time, you're such a great Imam, that 40,000 people are narrating it from you, that you reach such a level where you only have two people left at your feet. And people are saying that you have deviated and people are not speaking to you and not replying to you. Sometimes.
People are not replying to you sometimes. And it reaches that level, you can imagine the effect it has on you, you will become disheartened, you will become upset you will become
a loser. You lose all motivation. So this is what happened with emammal Buhari, that, you know, after he had reached such a level of scholarship, and he had benefited the oma with so much knowledge, and they've done so much with Yama. They eventually abandoned him. So just imagine how it feels. So now as
he's getting older, and he died at the age of 62,
one of his servants says that, remember Buhari towards the end of his life, he had some family members and relatives and close friends and some Moroccans. Now these relatives and family members, they're not students of knowledge. And they're not scholars. So they invited him to come and visit them. So now, on his way to assemble our cousins, he stops off in a village called frontenac. And in horses, he likewise had a relative from he stayed with and descended in his home as well. So the servant over there, he's mentioning how it is the month of Ramadan. And emammal Connie Rahim Allah Allah is standing in the light prayer. And he keeps on making the act. I was
saying, you know, and spinalis is really really sad to think that a person that the the likes of the Malibu quality is forced into such a situation where he's forced to meet this da. He says Allahumma kodaka. Daddy Otto Bhima Hubbert for kidney Lake bento Allah, as vast as you have made this earth, it is becoming constrained and congested upon me. So take me back to you. And the moment the likes of email and mahadi is going through so much pain and suffering. He's been abandoned by all of his friends and companions, anyone that he ever looked up to anyone he ever honored and respected, had eventually betrayed him and left him and he was forced into making this law that Oh Allah, as vast
as this earth is, it has become congested and constraint upon me. So take me back to you. So the circuit over here he mentions that the month didn't end, except that emammal Buhari, or Rahim Allah who passed away and emammal because he passed away on the first night of the show, and he died on the night of April 5. That within 12 days, the mount Bahati in some narrations passed away after making this. Now there are so many lessons that we can learn
From this particular scenario in this story, but we'll restrict ourselves to the most important of them.
First of all, the statement of scholars two minutes, okay fellas in two minutes, the lights I know try to get get as many benefits as we can, that the statements of scholars appoint other scholars should not be accepted unrestrictedly that is, sometimes a scholar will speak about another scholar, one should not take it unrestrictedly but rather take it with a grain of salt, especially if they are contemporaries. As we've seen the story. Sometimes scholars may get jealous of other scholars, sometimes there may be a misinterpretation of what a scholar has said. This is something to keep in mind that in our times, there has been a lot of talk about the scholar said something about the
scholar and the scholar said something about it another scholar, we should all be accepted with a grain of salt. Then look into the situation for yourself, Allah, Allah has blessed you with mighty intellects. So make use of them, look at the facts and then judge individuals by them and not by what other people say about them. Another scenario is that you know, no matter how much almost pinata Allah may bless you with knowledge that your divine and eventual return will be to Allah subhana wa Tada. And you need to remember that any situation that you are in, the only way out of it is through Allah subhanaw taala that a lot of people may think that the amount of according to him
Allah to Allah is committing a form of suicide, or is doing something which is wrong. But rather This is something that he learned from his very own safe, that he mentioned the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
That when fitna that a fitna a fitness to become manpage, then take me back to you, to me, that someone who hasn't been trialed or tabulated. So this is what he meant. Nobody is doing that in time of adversity, he turns to Allah subhanaw taala. And lastly, I think my last minute is coming to an end is the form of justice. Now this scholar by the name of Muhammad Ali, remember when he returned back to him that he wrote nine books about Hadith from Muhammad Ali, and he said all those nine books back to Muhammad and yeah, he's already saying that, you know, you have done an injustice against my sheer well as you look at the Justice and the amount of equality that even though this
man wronged him and accused him of something which is inaccurate. Mmm Bukhari still Nerys from him under his career that he found that he did what he couldn't find with
