hamdulillah masala to surah Allah so you've been mousseline. ohata been Mamadou Marla Rahim here during a massive aquifer will be lurking in a straight line of regime Smilla Rahmanir Rahim in Allahu Amanda Equateur who you saw Long Island in Libya, you have nothing in common or similar idea he was salutes
Allahumma Solana so you don't agree with any kind of either me with
respect to the Allamah guests. I'm students. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa.
We are gathered here once again for the completion of sustainable herding and the reading of the final Hadith of the book,
and also to mark the graduation of a number of students who have completed seven years of
very intensive study of Arabic
and the related sciences of Arabic such as grammar.
Morphology, now itself, even some aspects of Arabic literature,
and moving on to FIP and even Quran of seed, and Hadith.
One of the reasons why this graduation ceremony not just here, but all over the world is called the Behati graduation. Even though it's not the only book of Hadith they've studied.
even apart from the books of the seed and FIP
when it comes to Hadith, they study many books of Hadith many small collections of medium sized collections, larger collections, and then the original major works.
And even in the final two years,
buhari is just one of six major books of Hadith, which you're all familiar with.
Hardly Muslim during the abodo Nissy. You have no manager and then even before that they study Shirahama, annual artha, Moscato Masabi, the elder Saudi heen, etc. So why do we call it the Buhari graduation ceremony or the Hutton of Buhari? It's symbolic.
And the reason is
after the whole, you've got
all of the branches of learning all of the sciences
are secondary to the words of Rasul Allah Subhan, Allah Almighty.
So first comes the kalam of Allah, the speech of Allah, the Holy Quran.
And then this is followed by the Golan have Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, the speech of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
And that's embodied in the collections of Hadith.
And there are many connections.
But of all of these connections,
the most prestigious, the most authentic,
the most rigorously
and without doubt, the most noble
and the most universally acknowledged,
appreciated. And in fact, revered collection is that of Imam Muhammad didn't get smarter either.
So what made his work and his collection so great, that
even children now know the phrase that the most authentic book after the book of Allah is saved.
There are many reasons, but
most of them rest with the author himself, Imam Buhari,
his sacrifice his efforts.
His devotion is undertake
the suffering machine you're called
in the path of learning and conveying the words of Rasul Allah, so
Allah Almighty equals his own piety,
All of these things, many more collectively elevated his collection over all other connections.
He was revered in his own time. And that position has been cemented and has continued to endure all these centuries till today. So the reason we call it the Hudson of Bihar is not that we are marking or commemorating only the completion of Sahiba will hurry. Rather, we are marking the culmination of seven years of study with the final recitation of one Hadith, which comes right at the end of the greatest book of Hadith. So it's symbolic, it's exemplary. It's representative of the overall hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi. Salam, this is why we lay great emphasis on the name Buhari and the collection.
Ha, he is a very technical book, out of all of the collections of Hadeeth. In fact, out of all of the books are a books studied in the seven years, whether it's the seed or fic, or Arabic, or any,
or any other branch and science of Islamic learning, without exception, without arrival, the most complicated book is so here,
it truly is.
And this is why after the Holy Quran, no other book in Islam has received so much attention in terms of commentaries,
notes, editing, analysis and study, so he will hurry. It's a very complex book. So there are two ways of approaching it. One is, when we are studying the final Hadith,
we could just catch a glimpse of some of what the students are taught
in that traditional manner with all the detailed technical complex discussions or theology, because the final book is actually dabbled, though he'd it's a book on metaphysics. It's a book that covers aspects of philosophy, metaphysics,
it covers heretical groups of the past, etc. So it's a very technical discussion, we could indulge in that. But that's and we would only catch a glimpse of what the students are normally taught. But that's this isn't the occasion for that.
However, there's a lot for us to learn even as normal as non students from the final Hadith, and it's reading today.
One is Baja he began, began his book history with one famous Hadith, and he ends it with another famous Hadith. And in between the first Hadith and the final Hadith, there are approximately 7400 Hadith approximately depending on the numbering, how you actually number a hadith.
Yes, there are repetitions. So a third of the book is original, and two thirds of it is repetition, approximately.
So or just over a third, so 2700 800 Hadith approximately our original, the remainder of the seven and a half 1000 are repetitions of those 2007 800 Hadith.
So all of these Hadith, in between the seven and a half 1000 Approximately cover many aspects of life they do.
Just like the Holy Quran, they will cover the history history of the former nations history of the prophets and even Sudan all in the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam himself. They will cover aspects of living laws, they will cover the bar that acts of worship Salah has aka hedge, fasting, Ramadan, they will cover the virtues and the merits of senior people from amongst the companions. Then these are just some examples so they cover every aspect of life and learning. So much so that they even cover in great detail issues related to
Two social aspects marital law, marriage, divorce children, all of these things similar to the Holy Quran. However,
when we reach the end of the book,
there is a less
just as there was a lesson right at the beginning.
And there's a lesson for us to take away your right at the end. And before I
elaborate on some of these lessons from Sahiwal Buhari itself, we only need to look at the Holy Quran
in a way
with approximation and roughly, Bacardi follows the example of the Holy Quran
when we read the Holy Quran, and if we try to understand it, the Quran covers many detailed topics. So you could be reading about the history of the former prophets and amo Salaam and their respective nations.
The next minute, you could be reading about laws of trading.
The next minutes you could be reading about laws of inheritance, laws of marriage, of divorce, of trade, of lending of borrowing, you could be reading about salah virtues, you could be reading about aspects of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life and the events that took place in Makkah and Medina 14 centuries ago.
You could be reading about Jana, Jana, but
the Quran covers so much.
And one of our greatest weaknesses is that we are very selective. So we love to remember and focus only on those verses of the Holy Quran that appeal to us or suit us.
Whereas Allah says, Yeah, you're living in a Armand huddle for silica for what are the three rule Kotova Shavon in hola como todo bien, are believers
and into Islam
and do not follow
in the footsteps of che Bong, Verily, He is your clear enemy.
And what's one of the aspects of following in the footsteps of shape law, it is not to embrace religion, as a whole,
is not to enter into Islam completely, but rather select.
In another verse, Allah addresses
the People of the Book who were in Medina, who lived alongside Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam.
And just to give you a quick background, without going into too much too much detail, what they would do is that they would engage in behavior, which appeared to be rather odd.
fellow when they're allies, their fellows, their friends and colleagues would ask them that, why are you doing this? And why are you doing that? Why don't you do this? Why do you do that? So their reply would be
we don't do this. Because Allah has forbidden this, because they will people on the Scripture.
We don't do this because Allah has forbidden us. We do this because Allah has commanded us.
But it was true. Allah had told them don't do this, Allah had also told them do this. So they would do a, they would do B, but they ignore C and D and E, then they act on F, then they forget G not forget, but overlook and ignore GE, and so on. So Allah told them to do 100 things.
Allah told them not to do 100 things out of these 200 commandments, 100 of them prescriptions, 100 of them prohibitions, what they do that act on a few here and a few there and ignore the rest.
They believed in them. They never denied that Allah has told us to do this, or told us not to do this. They never ever denied any of the laws of Allah.
So when they were questioned, they wouldn't deny Yes, it's in our Scripture. It's in our commandments. It's part of our teaching. It is part of our religion, but they fail to act on it. So Allah
reprimands him, Allah scolds them. And when he does so listen to his wording. Allah doesn't say, Why do you act on part of the book and fail to act on the rest? Rather, law says to them, of adopt me known to be bad they will Kitabi What 401 arriba?
What do you believe in part of the book, and you actually disbelieve in the rest. Now there's an apparent mismatch. They never ever disbelieved in any part of the book.
They believed in the whole book, and they would attest to this, they would declare it, they would pronounce it, they would read it, him it recite it, they would rehearse it.
They wouldn't act on everything. So they read and study the book from cover to cover, teach it, preach it, rehearse it, memorize it, relates it, recite it,
but they wouldn't act on the book in its entirety only selectively. So Allah doesn't reprimand them or scold them by saying that Why do you act on part of the book and not act on the rest? Rather loss has to them of a dopamine want to be better than Kitabi? What the Coronavirus What do you believe in part of the book and disbelieving the rest?
So there's a great lesson for isn't that, that Allah Himself is equating their failure to act on part of the guitar as disbelief in the guitar?
There's a lesson for us in that,
that if we are selective in our choice of verses that we adhere to that appeal to us that we act on, then there's a danger. Of course no one says Smilla rahmanir rahim. So as I was saying, there's a danger, that although we may profess belief in the whole of the guitar, just as the people on the book would do, if we are selective
and restricted in what we act on, then, although no one says that we become disbelievers, we have to be mindful of the words of Allah, to the people of the book, when he told them, what do you believe in part of the book and spinneys in the rest. So I was saying that we are very selective. So we remember aspects of the Holy Quran, that suit is the same with a hadith.
Parents know all the Hadith about rights of parents.
wives know a hadith about the rights of wives, husbands, no a hadith about the rights of the husband.
We can't be select.
And when it comes to the Holy Quran, the Quran teaches as much but the important thing is that what's the ultimate goal?
What's the journey end?
What's the actual destination?
Allah tells us, our destiny, our destination, our purpose,
our direction, in the final verse of the Holy Quran that was revealed. And that verse is
at the end of Surah, Baqarah.
And this verse is remarkable because you've got two verses that are both unique one come both
together, two consecutive verses. They are very unique.
And I mentioned the second one first, the second verse is yeah, you have nothing in common or either today intimidating. It actually was some unforgettable. It's the longest verse of the Quran. It's longer than many of the spirits of the final 30 of part. This one verse is actually longer than a number of cigarettes. It's the longest verse. What's the longest verse of the Quran about? Remarkably, it's not about any of the former nations. It's not about any of the profits at amis, Sadam. It's not even about Salas aka hedge, fasting,
or the acts of EBA that it's not even about Jin magia Hanneman.
It's not even about the Arca, the longest verse of the Quran speaks about
making recedes whilst lending and borrowing to ensure that there is no misunderstanding. The longest verse of the Quran deals with trade and the ethics and etiquettes of trade, of buying of selling of finance. So it's unique in the sense that it's the longest verse of the Quran, but it deals with wealth.
And the verse immediately before it is also unique
What's the cuyama Regina fee hate Allah, the Moto Alpha cooltone, FC maca Sabbath, hula
and fear a Day in which you shall all be returned to Allah. Then each soul shall be required and repaid in full for whatever it is earned. Now we hear that message often. Why is this verse unique? It's unique, because it's actually the final verse to be ever revealed to us all Allah Subhan Allah while he was in recording some generations, it was revealed only nine days before he left this world.
We often hear that the final verse was a Yama, UK, Mottola convener and workman to allay criminality will lead to a community SNAM Medina, this day I have completed
your religion for you.
And I have completed my favor on you.
And I am content with Islam as a religion for you. We often hear that that that was a final verse. It is but it's only the final verse in that it brought to an end the laws of Islam
the do's and don'ts and it was revealed in the final Hajj
of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, approximately
two months legged
two and a half months later, this verse was revealed. And this was the final verse of the Quran. So the journey of the Quran begins
when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was 40 years of age and he received the first verses it caught up with some Arabic Allah the hudec the Quran was revealed gradually over 23 years and it covers so much history that the afterlife the previous lives,
laws, Do's, Don'ts are gum marriage, divorce, inheritance, wealth, about that. But what is the final message of Allah after 23 years of the revelation of the
the final message a few days before the carrier and the bearer and the conveyor of that message, our beloved Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam departs from this world, what is the final and farewell message, that final and farewell message is that all of this leads to one thing, which is fear a Day in which you should all be returned to Allah, then every soul shall be requited in for for what it is.
This is what it leads to.
This is similar to what Mr. McCarty is. And before I explain that, let me share something else with you. Many, many people who are
on their deathbed
in their final moments, in their final hours, and they still have the strength to speak. It's been related by many people, that they say various things, because their life is coming to an end. They know the waiters on know their friends and family and loved ones now that
we are about to depart.
I am leaving.
We often hear that some of the things they say are as follows. And there's one word that's repeated a lot. The word nothing.
People on their deathbed say this. What do they say? They say in all languages, they say things like it's all come to nothing.
It means nothing.
We got nothing.
The end result is nothing. It was all for nothing. So the word nothing is repeated.
Because indeed, that's what happens. You can have all the wealth in the world. When a person is about to depart from the dunya he or she will genuinely
and very acutely feel
that it's all come to nothing. It means nothing.
So similar to that verse of the foot. Well, that verse of the Quran tells us that even if you follow the laws of Islam, in your marriage and in your divorce in your heart
household, in your social life, in your private life in your public life in your EBA that ultimately, what's the end result? The end result is you are about to leave the world and you are about to fit stand before Allah, and therefore face accountability. Fear a day in which you shall all be returned to Allah. Then what do the words say and these are the final words of the Holy Quran from a twofer couldn't have seen Marcussen hula is the moon, then every soul shall be repaid requited in full, for whatever it is earned and acquired, and no one shall suffer any loss or injustice in the least. Which means we will be held accountable by or there will be justice.
Well now you with Ramon they will not suffer any injustice.
Every soul shall be repaid in full and accurately and precisely no less no more for what ever it has acquired. And now let's go back to Wuhan.
He begins his GitHub with that famous Hadith about Hijra sincerity of intention
in the Malama robinia.
That deeds are only bind tension.
And without going into detail suffice to say that the first Hadith about sincerity of intention has got nothing to do with the chapter heading or the book right at the beginning of something horrible heart. Rather Buhari has introduced this hadith as an introduction as a reminder to himself to the listeners to the students to teach us to the oil amount. So anyone read
that before you embark on this journey of studying Hadith, of reading the book, and his collection of his collection of sahih Hadith. Be mindful of your intention, be sincere, remain sincere. So that's a reminder. So he begins his guitar with sincerity of intention, and then he ends it with this final and famous Hadith, which is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, getting Madani Have you ever done it? Man, coffee for tiny island designed for PETA and if in a museum Subhan Allah he will be him the span of life our lien, which many people know now by heart, Allah, masha Allah so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said there are two words
which are beloved to the gracious one.
Light on the tongue,
heavy in the scales.
And those two words all those two sentences are Subhan Allah Who behind the use of Han Allah here. Now,
of course, this hadith has a lot to do with the vicar of Allah, and that the speed of Allah and the praising, and the hemming of the glory of Allah, of course. But if you look at the chapter heading, it's not just about the speed and vicar and Hammond.
Fatima turn, if you will means that these two sentences are heavy in the scales, are you the scales of justice and accountability in the Hereafter? And you can only glean this if you look at the final chapter. So what's the final chapter? What is it about? Barbara Cole in law? One of the remember was Xena best what an armada bunny, Adam Ola home using chapter of the word of Allah, or the words of Allah. And then he quotes a verse of Surah, Colombia. And what's that verse? One of that little miroir zinal distally oming.
So it's a reference when otherwise you know this, but the four versus the old nuclear
fallout from che, we're in Ghana with Allah headbutt him hurdling. Athena via waka Fatima has been, Allah says,
and this is the meaning this is the final chapter of the book chapter of the words of Allah, and we shall establish the scales of justice on the Day of Resurrection.
Follow up to the amount of sunshine, so no soul shall suffer any injustice in Belize. And even if it is something to the weight of a mustard seed, we shall produce it waka Verbena has been and we are sufficient as accountants. We are sufficient as auditors.
What does that verse speak of accountability similar to that final
verse of the Holy Quran and fear a Day in which you shall all be returned to Allah. And then
each soul shall be required and repaid and for for all that it has
In a way following the Quran reminds us right at the end of his book. Similar to the Quran Biharis collection covers everything. You will find a Bertha Salah so Yamanaka, Hodge, Ramadan, virtues merits, encouragement, excitation discouragement warnings, you will find history you will find Sierra you will find the sea, you'll find everything, but what does he all need? What's the what's the whole purpose? Ultimately, the purpose is accountability, justice, facing Allah.
That's the end goal. That's the end journey. That's where we all had, regardless of what's covered in between. One of our mistakes is, we think that Islam is just about adopting a different costume.
Painting ourselves in a different color.
Shifting and adjusting, adjusting a few things here and there.
And it's all good.
A good example is Hello meet.
What's the purpose of halal meat?
Here you have an animal.
If you don't slaughter the animal, if you slaughter the animal in exactly the same way, where you don't say Bismillah you don't take the name of Allah.
And you have no intention of slaughtering. It's in the name of Allah. You could do it in the same way.
It's not halal. You take the same similar animal, slaughter it, take the name of Allah make the intention, say Bismillah Allahu Akbar.
The method of slaughter is the same. But here you've made the NIA and you pronounce the words. All of a sudden that same animal slaughtered in the same way becomes Hala.
So we think that okay,
this is her arm. This is Hala. How is this Hello? Because we've taken the name of Allah on it right now. Eat it
and that's it. Don't eat this, eat this.
And that's it. So all we've done is avoided one type of means
and consumed the same Meade's with a slight change in the technicality.
But the Sony the letter, what about the spirit?
Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah tells the messengers at ACHEMA Salah, the prophets of Allah. Yeah, you are also Kuru Mina play yerba wireman. Lusardi
are messengers eat of the pure things and do good.
So the spirit of Halal is you eat halal, with the intention with the knee and in such a way that that consumption of pure leads you to pure deeds.
And those pure deeds create purity in you.
It's not just about switching one type of meat with another.
Same with Islamic finance.
If our understanding is, here's a product
It's haram because of arriba.
He has another problems.
All we need to do is switch the wording. fidget slightly adjust the technical terms. And once you've made a slight technical adjustment, all of a sudden, the same thing, to all intents and purposes with a change of name and a change of language and a technical adjustment suddenly becomes Hello. It does I'm not denying that it does become harder. However, that's not the goal. That's not the purpose.
The purpose is to adopt
and to use those monetary
items to engage in those monetary practices in a pure meaningful way. With the correct intention with the correct Outlook with the correct spirit. The usage of of money in that pure manner should lead
So pure deeds, pure deed should lead to purity. And I've just given two examples of Halal meats or Halal money, the same thing goes for everything.
Islam isn't just about we do exactly the same, but in a different way.
That's not the purpose. So when it comes to marriages, our marriages are no different than other marriages.
Except the technicality.
Our families are no different to other families except the technicality. Except the name. That is not the purpose of any of the teachings of Islam. Every single thing should and must lead you to the end goal, which is the Aqua and one of the meanings of Tibet. In fact, the comprehensive meaning of Taqwa is consciousness of Allah subhanho wa taala. Awareness, the fear of the accountability of Allah.
That's how we should live our lives. That's what we should be heading for. And this is what will Heidi reminds us to that. Yes, he begins a book with sincerity of intention. And then there is so much in between what is the purpose of all of those things? What is the goal, the goal is the very same end as the end of the Quran, which is
a return to Allah.
The awareness and consciousness of the Day of Resurrection, of accountability, standing before Allah scramble with Allah, this is what matters.
And all else, as many people say, at the end of their lives, it all comes to nothing. It was all for nothing. All that matters is what we take with us to the
aisle. I said earlier that we can even take exam an example from the life of Imam Mohammed Abdullah himself. And this would be of interest to the students. Lucky man will hardly read the law. He is a perfect example. He's just one of many. But since we are
commemorating the completion of his guitar,
let's just look at his life as an example,
But he also fell into poverty.
He was poor at the beginning, he became a trader, who was quite wealthy. But then he also lost his wealth and gained his wealth. And he suffered.
Money comes and goes.
Money comes and goes, there was a time when people used to rain money on Buhari and that's not a metaphorical term.
It's not an allegory. Literally, they would take gold sovereigns, and silver, pure silver, their hands, and gold sovereign dinars. And they used to shower them on him like people throw petals and rain petals on a celebrity. And these days, people may rain notes. In those days when people would receive him in different cities, they would actually rain gold sovereigns and silver Dharamsala.
That's how much wealth he had. He was an archer, an expert archer. His students say when sometimes in our whole life, we only saw him miss the mark once or twice. He was brilliant Archer. So once he was practicing archery, in some state, and the arrow missed the target, and it's
straight to the side and embedded itself in the wooden post of a wooden bridge. So a very small wooden bridge over a stream or something. And it embedded the arrow embedded itself in the wooden bridge in the post. So either it was a private estate or it was under the governance of a certain governor. Whatever the case may have been Buhari, sent a message to the governor to the responsible person of that region, whether it was his private state or he was a governor, but he sent a message to him. And the message sent with the messenger was that Muhammad is smart, readable highly that was his name Muhammad would have been a smart either because his father wasn't smart enough. And again
he had an older brother called Mohamed sorry Akhmad so the older brother was called Ahmed
Imam Buhari was called Muhammad
when they were both young and their father It's married who was a student of my money grant Allah He had a he was on his deathbed and all Mr. Kane see Him and the Father Imam is smart eel actually said to the guests, and these older man right this, he said
all my wealth which I have left for these two sons of mine,
there is not a single there have been
approximately a pound given take
what it used to be two before last week
let's say a pound.
So he said in my entire wealth
that I have left for these two sons of mine.
There is not a single dereham which is doubtful, let alone
which is even done
pure wealth creates pure souls like that.
Purity begets pure.
Imagine he said there is not a single bit of doubtful provenance.
Let alone haram in my entire wealth. Well, hardly inherited wealth lost it gained. It's earned it's lasted. So going back to that story. When he sent the message. The message was Mohammed is smart, evil Buhari seeks to be Hala Are you seeks to be forgiven for the trespass against your property? Because my arrow landed on your wooden poster embedded itself in it.
So I want you to forgive me for that. So when the Emir received that message, he said,
Go back and turn from the dignity smile either Buhari that watts of my single wooden post of the bridge, what have it, all my lands and all my states are for you.
What I'm trying to say is that this was a respect he had, he had no need for wealth. People would shower money on him. But then the very same people turned well, how do you say that poverty in his days of studying whilst he was still studying as a younger man, he says, Once whilst in my searching and journeying for Hadith, I survived for three days without any food. I was eating dry grass that was born.
This theme does not come without sacrifice.
It's not spread without sacrifice. It's not gained without sacrifice. It's not maintained without sacrifice. Our man made great sacrifices. During the days of study, his teacher and the famous or the scholar of Islam, Imam Ahmed humble. He was widely senior Imam. He died in 256. hegemony and Imam
Campbell. He died 15 years earlier in 241 Hijiri Imam Campbell was
one of the greatest scholars of Islam. And in fact, his collection of hadith is the largest the Muslim or the atma didn't handle numbers approximately 10 7000 Hadith with the additions of his son Abdullah Mohammed, but Imam Ahmed when he was a student, do you know what he used to do in Makkah from Oklahoma? He used to study
in the evenings. And in the heat of the day, how would he earn his living? He was a coolie. He used to walk the streets carrying luggage for people on his back. That was
in his earlier days.
They made great sacrifices. So well, how do you make great sacrifices? Well, how do you had wealth but wealth came and went, it came and went, Well, how do you had fame?
How do you had fame?
None of us. And this is something that specifically I address that I address specifically to the students of knowledge and to the oilman to myself primarily.
Look, we're all human beings.
It's natural for us. To feel a pang of love for wealth, to feel a pang of envy when we see something that makes us that reminds us that I haven't got that. But he has got that she has got that I haven't got that. We're human beings at the end of the day. Islam doesn't tell us
if you have any of these thoughts or feelings, you're evil. No, that's natural. It's natural to feel
a pang of envy.
momentarily. It's natural to be attracted to wealth momentarily. It's natural to become angry momentarily. what Islam teaches us the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam is that when these ill feelings and emotions arise, a Muslim remembers all
La is responsible, gathers his thoughts, her thoughts, collect himself or herself suppresses these ill feelings and replaces them with wisdom, awareness and consciousness and the remembrance of Allah. So you feel a pang of jealousy, what do you do? You suppress it, you replace it with good thoughts with positive thoughts, in fact, even make a dua for the person towards whom your envy is directed. And you say, May Allah increase him even more? May Allah grant me even more. You know what that does? It brings about peace of mind, contentment, tranquility, and relaxation.
Otherwise, you're just burn inside for no reason.
All you do is kill yourself.
It's, it's natural to feel the love of wealth. It is. Allah says Xena, nurse, Ragusa monocyte you will have been in will come out even more than 30 minutes the heavy will filter will hate him so much with an animal health till the end of the verse that all of these things are the dunya on naturally beautified in the hearts of men, that's natural. So what happens when the love of these things arises in one's heart and in one's thought? What does a Muslim do?
You fight it, you suppress it, you can test it, you remind yourself of the Ashra you remind yourself all of this comes to nothing it's the need of the dunya but it's not our goal. It's not our objective. So you overcome it.
In the similar in a similar light, it's natural for students of knowledge and for Allah ma to momentarily think of I'd love to be like that. Sit on the member. give a speech. Everyone says wha Masha Allah Alhamdulillah look how clever he is. Look how eloquent is where you are the center of attraction you're on the stage it's natural, one of the Abbas and Emperor's
and this is one of the imagined he's the Abbas an emperor of the ambassador Empire.
The greatest empire on earth at the time without rival
even Charlemagne of Europe, used to pay homage. Charlemagne the Great's of Europe, we pay homage to the obverse of rulers and Emperor's, so the ambassador emperor who lacks nothing, who had everything.
Wealth, gold, silver, opulence homes, palaces, slaves, attendance, pure fertile lands.
He wanted for nothing.
He wanted for nothing, there was nothing that he lacked, what more could he have asked for? He had armies gold silver treasures,
but he had one he lacked one treasure, he lacked one thing which was not in this treasure, which only the mullahs had.
So the Abbas had emperor said, Do you know what I really want?
What I want to do is have a group of students seated around me.
And they all seated there with their pens and their papers. And then I say to them, had the thinner fallen bar that had the thinner fallen, or had the thinner fallen. So core tears being core tears and sycophants. They said, Your Majesty grantors leave, we will go and get pens and papers and we will come and sit in front of you. And he said fools, not you lot. But students of Hadith,
I want them to sit around me with their pens and their papers. And I say to them had the financial loan on either had nothing for them or had to thin out for Lannon full are related to us, he said such and such person related to us that such and such person related to us all the way to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi salam, and then he even said, and one of them stops me and says, What did you just say? And then I repeat it, and then he writes it. So it's a password. So even emperors who were laden with gold and silver, they envied the trilemma
because Mulas had what they did not.
The moolah have what His Majesty didn't have,
and match his Majesty envied.
So imagine, we we envy, His Majesty, and I'm talking about the majesty 12 centuries ago.
So we envy his majesty of the ambassador Empire for his wealth,
and he envies the pauper of a Mullah.
So who should we be envy?
So envy is a natural thing and indeed when it comes to in
Even Emperor's have that desire that I wish I could be a teacher and they all sit around me and respect me and look up to me. Everybody wants to be any mama che from Allah Lim lead, stand on the masala lead stand on the member give speeches
Wallahi that's a weakness of the knifes because let me tell you and this is addressed to the students of him and the orlimar and to myself, even this all comes to nothing.
It all comes to nothing. It amounts to nothing, it leads to nothing. We want fame, who could have been more famous than Bihari, who could have been more famous than one of the orlimar said, I went to Egypt. And in Egypt, I met 30 Ruler ma 30 great scholars, all 30 of those scholars said to me, ma our one desire in life is to see the face of Muhammad and a smile or even body the way they were desirous just to catch a glimpse of his face. That was how
people used he used to walk in the street.
He never had a hair on his beard. He was 1617 years old. Now the hair on his beard, sorry, not a hair on his beard, not a hair on his face. Or llama will chase after him make him sit down in the middle of the street. Hundreds will gather in the middle of the road and he will be teaching them.
People chased him. People showered money on him. In the end because of one theological difference which hair splitting difference which most people did not understand, do not understand
what happened. People turn against him. That's what fame is. Fame is nothing. And I say to the students
and to the orlimar to don't aspire to fame, will Allah He even that comes to nothing. It doesn't mean anything.
Famous celebrity Madonna. She was asked she's become famous.
She was asked what do you say of fame? And this is Madonna speaking. And she said
I wouldn't wish fame on my worst enemies dog.
Because the very same people who chase fame, acquire it, then flee from it. Because this is an intrusion of privacy. it overtakes a person's life. The peace the happiness that a person seeks in fame is not there, just like it's not in wealth. It's not in fame if it truly isn't. So who could have been more famous than the man behind what happened to him? I won't go into the details. The very same people who used to shower him with gold and silver chased him out of their cities until he went from one city to another from he fled from Mesa Baltimore Hara he had to free from his own city North Bay come from Brighton Haven Somerton whilst I was traveling somewhere and he learned that the
people have similar and split into two half of the city was saying, Damn Hamburg next Merida Buhari come to our city. The others were saying we want him here. So Hardy then said, I'll wait outside Somerton there was a village called Katanga about 20 miles from Sumatra and his relatives lived there. So you went to wait in the village of Carleton. But given all of this well, Hardy was Willa, he was like a refugee fleeing from city to city in his old age or in his late age.
Because at that time, he was how old he was. 62 was born in 194. He died in 256. So he was 62 years old. So in his early 60s, he's fleeing from city to city as a refugee. Whereas when he was 17 years old, what am I used to chase. Now, the one we're chasing him out. Imagine when a man were dying to see him orlimar were chasing him. And there came a time in the non orlimar were chasing him out of their cities. In the end, he ended up in this village. It was a month of Ramadan. His student says I will seated behind him and after Isha Salah in the month of Ramadan, I heard him making dua to Allah. Allahu Medaka Allah you'll have to be Mara but forgive me lake over Allah. The Earth despite
its vastness has become narrower and restricted for me or law claim me unto yourself, you prayed for death. Well, how do you pray for death because of the way people were treating him? And there were Muslims.
He prayed for death. He was Ramadan he was Baja at
the end of the month came
it was the last day of Ramadan, Muslims Salah after maghrib the crescent was cited for either
be it was announced
immediately after a short while after market
news came as well good news from some of the country that the people have agreed that you can come to some of the Buhari he got ready. You got ready to leave for summer con 20 mile journey.
What happened? He fell ill
he was taken to his bed. And in that same night he passed away is the hours accepted he died on II Buhari Died on E. Next day, people came to his grave, and people would come the very same people who opposed him would now come and weep at his grave. That's what fame is. fame comes to nothing. wealth comes to nothing. What matters. In this journey of life is as a first hadith of Bokhari states sincerity of intention, be sincere, focused pure in your motive on this journey, and all that matters. After everything in the middle of the book, marriage, divorce laws, inheritance, wealth, trading business, all that matters is one of that one was in August, we shall establish the scales
of justice on the Day of Resurrection, and the deeds of men shall be weighed. And even though words, and in this context, were hard, he brings a hadith two sentences or two words that are most beloved to the gracious Subhan Allah Who behind this Subhan Allah who are lean, they are light on the tongue. What's the main focus in this hadith? It's not so much that the speed and the Hand of Allah What's the main focus the words for Lila than if it means on? These two words are heavy in the scales of Allah? The scales of justice? That's what the ending of the book is about. Justice in the Akira. Accountability, answering for our deeds, preparation for the life of the ACA. May Allah
subhanho wa Taala Allah grant all of us though fee, may Allah make us sincere? May Allah enable us to live our lives as Muslims, May Allah enable us to adopt halal food Hello wealth in the correct spirit. So that halau consumption of food and the halal acquisition of wealth leads us to Halal deeds, hello thoughts leads us to purity within to and all of that leads us to a good and noble departure from this dunya in such a state that Allah has pleased with us so that in that era, which is all that matters, our scales are heavy with good deeds. They are truly heavy with good deeds. May Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah grant is at our feet. Symbolically, I'll just read the final chapter
and the Hadith for the students and inshallah we'll make a brief throughout after that.
