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

Do you want to talk karate?

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

When I was learning

00:00:11--> 00:00:11

the

00:00:13--> 00:00:17

meaning of the love of film video on your Glyn Hoefler, how do you

00:00:18--> 00:00:21

want to show the one? You know you love the hula should he

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

want to show the map to who was

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

so loved?

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

He was

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

sleeping on

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

a mobile phone shape on Jean smilla rahmanir rahim in Allahumma the Eco saloon It

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

was

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

a lot

00:00:55--> 00:00:56

later on Lita

00:00:58--> 00:01:02

Brahimi Majeed Allahumma Burdick.

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

Mohammed

00:01:06--> 00:01:06

Ibrahim

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

Ibrahim merci

00:01:11--> 00:01:15

listeners salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

Once again,

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

we gather for the

00:01:26--> 00:01:28

annual graduation ceremony

00:01:29--> 00:01:32

of a number of students

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

who have completed the

00:01:38--> 00:01:45

in media studies culminating with the study and the completion of cycle Buhari.

00:01:49--> 00:01:52

Why do we attach such importance

00:01:55--> 00:01:56

to the study of heavy

00:01:59--> 00:02:06

and especially to the collection of Imam Muhammad

00:02:07--> 00:02:07

Ali.

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

as Muslims,

00:02:16--> 00:02:22

we all recognize that the foundation and fountainhead

00:02:23--> 00:02:26

of our religion is a speech of Allah

00:02:27--> 00:02:30

is Golan the Noble Quran.

00:02:34--> 00:02:38

Everyone recognizes this Muslims and non Muslims.

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

However,

00:02:46--> 00:02:48

in the view of some, there is still some confusion.

00:02:50--> 00:02:54

And more and more questions are being raised, especially now

00:02:57--> 00:02:59

about the second source of Islam

00:03:01--> 00:03:09

about the speech not of a law, but the speech of his Noble Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the collection of headings.

00:03:13--> 00:03:14

This is a very serious topic.

00:03:17--> 00:03:19

Many are questioning

00:03:20--> 00:03:27

the validity of Howdy. its authenticity, its place in Islam in the life of Muslims.

00:03:30--> 00:03:35

We see people from all walks of life or backgrounds

00:03:36--> 00:03:39

questioning the authenticity

00:03:40--> 00:03:43

and the validity of the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu it was

00:03:50--> 00:03:55

the reason why that will amount attaches such importance to study of study

00:03:58--> 00:04:02

is that the study of Hades is the study of the holy book.

00:04:07--> 00:04:15

There is no understanding of the Holy Quran without the commentary and the explanation of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:04:19--> 00:04:28

The whole history of Islam shows that in fact, the Quran itself shows that and the life of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam proves

00:04:33--> 00:04:36

lots of panel data stays

00:04:37--> 00:04:39

in four places of the Holy God.

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

What the mission

00:04:46--> 00:04:49

of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was.

00:04:51--> 00:04:55

He explains the functions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam His prophets

00:04:56--> 00:04:58

and his duties and responsibilities.

00:05:01--> 00:05:10

In fact, even before the birth of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, even before the revelation of the Holy Quran

00:05:13--> 00:05:27

many generations before, two of the prophets of Allah alayhi wa Salatu was around his two forefathers. So you're not used to married either his son and his father. So you're gonna Ibrahim alayhis salam,

00:05:28--> 00:05:36

they both being prophets of Allah and messengers of Allah. They also mean from their own experience,

00:05:38--> 00:05:46

that when the future prophet of Islam would arrive, one of their own children, one of their own progeny that they had hoped and prayed for.

00:05:47--> 00:05:52

They knew that not only would he bring a book and a revelation from Allah,

00:05:53--> 00:06:05

but that that revelation and that book would not be understood by anyone, until it was explained, and practically demonstrated by the same noble messengers of the lovely.

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

This is why upon the completion of the building of the garba,

00:06:11--> 00:06:27

both father and some prayed to Allah, hoping that at the completion of this noble task of rebuilding the garba, Allah would accept their dough and prayer. And what was their prayer? Robin, I hope I see him Rasulullah min. yet.

00:06:28--> 00:06:31

We only Makita boys

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

old, raised

00:06:36--> 00:06:41

from them, meaning from our progeny, and our children, a messenger

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

from them,

00:06:45--> 00:06:45

who will

00:06:46--> 00:06:48

recite to them your verses,

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

and teach them the book and wisdom

00:06:55--> 00:06:56

and purify them.

00:06:58--> 00:07:07

These three duties of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, are repeated in four places in the Holy Quran. This is the first one.

00:07:08--> 00:07:30

So even the messengers of Allah knew beforehand, what was their only function and GT and what will be the function and GT of the future messenger. For this is what all the prophets have done. Allah has communicated with his creation, through the prophets and messengers, and he was said, but the messengers weren't simple careers.

00:07:31--> 00:07:38

They didn't just convey the book of Allah and His revelation, and leave the creation to

00:07:39--> 00:08:04

all of the messengers of Allah alayhi wa Salatu was Olam communicated with Allah who received the revelation conveyed that revelation to the people explained that revelation practically demonstrated to them how to live by that revelation, and apply it to his teachings. And they work not only on their minds, but on their hearts on their characters too.

00:08:06--> 00:08:16

This was the detail of all the messages. And these, all of what I have just explained, is encompassed in these three GTS mentioned by law again and again in

00:08:18--> 00:08:27

the conveyed the recitation of the verses of Allah Wa, to teaching the people the book and wisdom

00:08:28--> 00:08:29

and three ways of

00:08:31--> 00:08:36

molding and purifying and developing the character of

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

their followers.

00:08:43--> 00:08:46

When the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam was in muckety, muck around

00:08:48--> 00:08:59

the people of Makkah the breach, they repeatedly demanded of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that produce a book, bring us a book.

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

You say Allah speech to you,

00:09:03--> 00:09:05

bring us proof

00:09:06--> 00:09:09

in the form of a book bound by two covers.

00:09:11--> 00:09:14

If you produce such a book, we will believe in you.

00:09:16--> 00:09:21

For 13 years, prasugrel la salaallah alayhi wa sallam remained in Makkah,

00:09:22--> 00:09:36

preaching to the people, inviting them to his message, but many resolutely refused to believe in Him, and one of their key demands was bring us a book

00:09:41--> 00:09:47

when the prophet SAW, and yet for those 13 years Alon Neville never revealed the Book in physical form.

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

Not a single piece of paper.

00:09:54--> 00:09:58

Then, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrived in Medina

00:10:01--> 00:10:05

The people of Medina, some of them, made exactly the same demand.

00:10:07--> 00:10:07

Give us a book,

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

bring down a book from the heavens.

00:10:13--> 00:10:15

One nobody can feel and touch and read

00:10:18--> 00:10:29

again for the next 10 years, despite the incessant demands of last panel who did not reveal a book, in fact, on a single piece of paper,

00:10:33--> 00:10:35

the message was, the meaning was

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

the

00:10:40--> 00:11:06

knowledge of Islam, the source of the sources of Islam, the foundation of Islam is not a physical book that Allah would just give to the people. These were the Arabs. The language of the Quran was their everyday language, which, in which they would Converse, in, in privacy at home in public in the marketplace.

00:11:08--> 00:11:14

There was no one better suited to understand the Arabic of the Holy Koran than the Arabs of Medina.

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

But this was their everyday language.

00:11:18--> 00:11:19

And yet they were never given a book.

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

The message was the meaning was,

00:11:26--> 00:11:29

you must learn your religion through the Messenger of Allah Allah.

00:11:33--> 00:11:38

What he says to you receive, he will recite the versity.

00:11:40--> 00:11:46

But he won't just suffice with the recitation of the verses. He will also explain the verses

00:11:47--> 00:11:51

and not only religious suffice with the explanation of the verses,

00:11:52--> 00:12:09

he will practically demonstrate the meaning of those verses to you. And he won't suffice with that. He will also work on your hearts and minds and mold and form your characters, according to the verses of Allah and the teaching of his messengers of Allah.

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

That is the duty of the messenger.

00:12:15--> 00:12:24

And that's exactly what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did, even the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu the noble companions, despite being poets,

00:12:25--> 00:12:32

despite being naturally eloquent, despite being masters of the Arabic language,

00:12:34--> 00:12:39

they were dependent on the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for that understanding of the holy book.

00:12:44--> 00:12:45

The Quran itself shows

00:12:48--> 00:12:51

as I said, time and time again, Allah sees where you're only marketable.

00:12:55--> 00:12:58

And he teaches in the book, and wisdom.

00:12:59--> 00:13:14

If the book was simply a book, to read, from cover, to cover, and to understand as one wishes, and to apply and implement as one wishes, then what need was there for the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam, to explain the book to

00:13:16--> 00:13:19

they were the masters of the Arabic language,

00:13:22--> 00:13:28

even though Allah Himself saves, one after the sudden or another victory For

00:13:30--> 00:13:43

verily we have made the Quran easy for remembrance. So is there anyone to remember? We have made the or an easy not only to remember, but as an admonition Is there anyone to take heed and be admonished?

00:13:48--> 00:13:54

is simple, the Quran is easy to understand, it's easy to remember, it's easy for admonition.

00:13:55--> 00:14:09

So despite it being easy, while we're the poets and the masters of the Arabic language, and the noble companions of the Langham, still dependent on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to teach them the book and wisdom and its meaning.

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

Because that was a function of the messenger some of the law.

00:14:16--> 00:14:18

his explanation of the whole important

00:14:19--> 00:14:28

his teaching of the book, and wisdom. And this word wisdom occurs many in many places of the holy or when hikma

00:14:30--> 00:14:40

and in many places, though, not all, the reference is to the teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the learning has set out to us.

00:14:47--> 00:14:54

And we are far more dependent on the commentary in the explanation of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam than even the Sahaba of the alarm.

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

This is why we attach such importance to that.

00:15:04--> 00:15:06

And when we look at the Quran itself.

00:15:08--> 00:15:24

The very nature of the Quran is a unique book. It's unlike any other book. It can't be read simply from cover to cover. It doesn't have a beginning, a middle and an end. It doesn't have a plot. It's unlike any other work of fiction or fangs.

00:15:25--> 00:15:33

The Quran is unique, because this is a speech of last panel horadada and the Quran is the column of the law.

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

It's unlike any other book.

00:15:38--> 00:15:45

As a result, we require the explanation of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam in order to understand the Holy Quran.

00:15:48--> 00:15:58

Those who argue that the Quran is sufficient. And this in itself is the fulfillment of the prophecy of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.

00:15:59--> 00:16:09

In a number of studies or social learning is Salatu was Salam. We learned that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said leps may not find any one of you.

00:16:12--> 00:16:14

reclining on a couch

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

satiated meaning filled with food after hunger.

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

Saying

00:16:25--> 00:16:27

that here we have the book of Allah.

00:16:28--> 00:16:36

What we find to be halaal in the book of Allah, we will consider halaal what we find to be Haram in the book of Allah we will consider Haram.

00:16:38--> 00:16:46

ie that we will suffice with the book of Allah. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues in the Hadith. He says, lo and behold, know

00:16:48--> 00:16:55

that what the messenger permits is like what law has permitted, and what the messenger forbids, is like what a lot.

00:17:01--> 00:17:06

So this is a fulfillment of the prophecy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. That time will come

00:17:08--> 00:17:26

when people will dispense with the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with his tradition with his Sunnah with his Hadith with his teaching with his commentary of the holy body, and they will attempt to suffice with only the Holy Quran. And the fact is, with the holy war,

00:17:28--> 00:17:35

we cannot construct our religion. Even those who argue and say the Quran is sufficient.

00:17:37--> 00:17:40

Their own understanding of the Quran and their own

00:17:41--> 00:17:45

application of the teachings of the Quran are full of contradictions.

00:17:47--> 00:17:48

First of all prayer,

00:17:56--> 00:18:01

we cannot even derive five prayers

00:18:02--> 00:18:03

of the day from the Holy Quran.

00:18:05--> 00:18:09

No way is it mentioned that you must perform five prayers.

00:18:17--> 00:18:19

No ways well five mentioned.

00:18:21--> 00:18:26

And some of you may think one minutes that the program does refer to the five prayers

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

implicitly

00:18:30--> 00:18:32

by mentioning different times of the day,

00:18:33--> 00:19:01

but the fact is, when we look at the vs when we look at those words, they do not speak of five prayers. This is why we find some people who say that there should only be three prayers during the day, we find others who say that there are only two prayers in Islam morning and evening. If the Quran was explicit and categorical, in its declaration of five prayers, would there be any such difference of opinion?

00:19:03--> 00:19:04

That would,

00:19:06--> 00:19:21

when I say that what does not refer to the five prayers I'm not speaking about implicitly, I'm not speaking by reference of Hadeeth and other commentaries, where we rely on over the ether other commentaries to prove and show what the words mean.

00:19:24--> 00:19:26

What I'm arguing is that if we

00:19:27--> 00:19:41

isolate the words of the Torah, and look at only the words of the poem, we cannot even reconstruct out our five prayers, not the details, but just the fact that we have to pray five times a day. All the Koran says is established.

00:19:43--> 00:19:47

In explicit terms, five prayers we cannot

00:19:49--> 00:19:50

we construct from the holder

00:19:52--> 00:19:58

and even if we were to argue that Yes, we can. Fine. What about the details the number of rock era

00:20:01--> 00:20:08

The details of each Raka all the Quran says is Yes indeed. Yeah, you're Latina. hamanaka was true.

00:20:09--> 00:20:10

Bound pray

00:20:12--> 00:20:19

sorry bound prostrate. But again what guarantee is there that this is in reference to Salam.

00:20:21--> 00:20:23

In fact the word Salah

00:20:25--> 00:20:27

in itself simply means prayer.

00:20:28--> 00:20:29

It means dorm.

00:20:31--> 00:20:32

And that could be in any form.

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

Just sitting down reclining on a couch and verbally

00:20:40--> 00:20:44

praising Allah is in itself a form of Salah.

00:20:46--> 00:20:54

Where does it show in the Quran itself that the salon being referred to is this prayer that we understand with its cycles,

00:20:55--> 00:21:01

the number of Raka the manner of prostrating the manner of bowing, none of it is mentioned.

00:21:03--> 00:21:06

So when we ask those who argue

00:21:08--> 00:21:14

for reliance only on the Koran and who argue for dispensing with the

00:21:17--> 00:21:52

we asked them, How do you pray that prayer is no different to ours? So where do you get your prayer from? The answer is surprisingly, this is a tradition of Islam. This is what we've always seen. This is the tradition of the people. So this is how we know that this is a prayer. So So Pamela, the tradition of common people is accepted as being a source of Islam. The tradition of the community is accepted as being a source of Islam, but the traditional Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reject

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

without the Hadees there is no Slava

00:22:00--> 00:22:10

with the Quran by itself that is no Salah, the same as same with Hajj. Only fasting seems to be a bit more explicit in the Quran and Sunnah.

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

Even then,

00:22:21--> 00:22:25

for Kuru, washable, Heta Isabella como heighten abdominal heightened as fundamental function.

00:22:29--> 00:22:36

Even then, one could argue, when is that the meaning of the vs. Therefore, eat and drink

00:22:38--> 00:22:42

until the white thread becomes distinct to you from the black thread,

00:22:44--> 00:22:44

then

00:22:46--> 00:22:48

complete the fast till the nines.

00:22:50--> 00:22:54

What's the demarcation point for the maids when there's a date stop on the mic they get?

00:22:56--> 00:23:05

Is it the fall of darkness? Or is it with the sunset? Because even after the sunset, there's twine, which in itself is an extension of the day.

00:23:06--> 00:23:10

One could argue that even those words are ambiguous.

00:23:13--> 00:23:32

And when Allah says the white thread from the black thread, again, there's a huge difference of opinion about this, the white thread and the black thread, in fact, even idea of Mahatma rhodiola one, one of the Sahaba of the law. He despite being a born native Arab.

00:23:33--> 00:23:35

He misunderstood this verse.

00:23:37--> 00:23:40

And the meaning of the distinction of the white thread from the black thread.

00:23:41--> 00:23:48

Until Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not correct him and did not provide the explanation. He misunderstood.

00:23:51--> 00:23:58

So whether it's Zika whether it's solar, whether it's fasting, so yeah, especially Hajj.

00:23:59--> 00:24:03

Even these pillars of Islam cannot be performed at all.

00:24:05--> 00:24:14

Without the traditional Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. without some tradition, reliance on the Quran himself will not suffice. So one cannot

00:24:15--> 00:24:23

reconstruct even the most fundamental pillars of worship in Islam with just the program itself.

00:24:25--> 00:24:28

There is so much that the program does not reflect.

00:24:30--> 00:24:44

One can only gain these things from the Hadith of the sword Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the two are interdependent. Each one relies on the other. There is no understanding of the poor and without or sort of law salovaara

00:24:45--> 00:24:48

there is no obedience of a law without the obedience of the message.

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

To be only say if you if you love law, and follow me when you are able to sue the law whoever

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

Follow whoever obeys the messenger. Then he has obeyed all.

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

Only epsilon.

00:25:09--> 00:25:18

And whoever disobeys Allah and His messenger. In countless places throughout the program, Allah has equated and conjoined

00:25:20--> 00:25:23

his obedience with the obedience of the messengers of the law

00:25:25--> 00:25:34

and his disobedience with its obedience of the messenger. obeying the messenger means to obey Allah, disobeying the messenger is disobeyed.

00:25:37--> 00:25:43

In America Napoleon what meaning either don't really it Allahu wa Salatu heliacal Medina Han and your Buddha's summary now what is

00:25:44--> 00:25:48

the only word the only response of the believers

00:25:50--> 00:25:54

when they are called to Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:25:57--> 00:26:04

to judge between the only response should be submitted in our bar and how we have heard and we have obeyed

00:26:06--> 00:26:15

or mechanically meaning one minute in either other law what a sword or a man on a gondola from last year at Emory, Omidyar Silla, what else Allah, Allah.

00:26:16--> 00:26:17

Allah says

00:26:18--> 00:26:22

it is not permissible for a believing man or a believing woman.

00:26:23--> 00:26:28

Once Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have decreed a maximum

00:26:30--> 00:26:36

that they shouldn't have any choice in their affair. Look how explicit The words are.

00:26:37--> 00:26:40

But they should have any choice in their affair.

00:26:41--> 00:26:46

And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, then indeed he has heard a clear.

00:26:48--> 00:26:52

So verse after verse speaks of

00:26:53--> 00:27:03

the obedience of the messenger salallahu alayhi wa sallam being equivalent to the obedience of Allah, and his disobedience being equivalent to the disobedience.

00:27:06--> 00:27:19

In fact, not just obedience, one should not even feel any reservation, with the judgment and with the verdicts of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam they should not feel any reservation in their hearts flower of

00:27:21--> 00:27:35

demography mashrabiya tamala g doofy. enforcing Hara Jemima, we suddenly move to sliema. Allah says, named by your Lord, he swears by himself named by your Lord, they will not believe

00:27:38--> 00:27:41

until they make you the arbitrator and the ultimate judge

00:27:43--> 00:27:44

in the common to speeds

00:27:45--> 00:27:46

then,

00:27:47--> 00:27:51

once they have made you the arbitrator, once they have made you the judge.

00:27:54--> 00:27:57

They do not even harbor any reservation

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

in their hearts at your verdict.

00:28:06--> 00:28:48

We are suddenly moved to slim, and until they do not submit a total submission. Pamela, in this one verse alone, Allah says they will not believe and he swears by himself for our big name by your Lord, they will not believe until they do not submit totally to your verdict to your judgment. And not only that, but the submission shouldn't just be apparent. The submission should not only be in body, but in mind on heart and such a submission. That along with the physical submission to your verdict, and the verbal submission to your verdict. They should not harbor or experience any doubts or reservation in their hearts and minds over your verdict.

00:28:50--> 00:29:02

Without total submission, in body in spirits and in mind, to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a lot in the arm swears by himself saying they will not believe they cannot become believe.

00:29:04--> 00:29:06

I won't mention in the Hadith because

00:29:10--> 00:29:21

if the argument is that we don't rely on the head if we don't listen to the head if we dispense with the head, there's not much point in mentioning the head the because it doesn't constitute evidence.

00:29:22--> 00:29:35

looking just at the Koran itself, verse after verse, speaks of the obedience of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam being equivalent to the obedience of a loved one cannot obey Allah without obeying the messenger.

00:29:39--> 00:29:41

One cannot worship Allah

00:29:42--> 00:29:58

without following the manner of worship of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is why we attach such importance to it. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away and left this world this How about the love

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

They created the aura.

00:30:04--> 00:30:05

And having collated that,

00:30:07--> 00:30:14

they also began reminding each other of the words of Rasulullah sallallahu. It.

00:30:16--> 00:30:22

And the fact is that in Islam, we have both an oral tradition, and a written tradition.

00:30:24--> 00:30:27

The oral tradition is part of the culture of Islam.

00:30:31--> 00:30:35

In fact, it's part of the culture of many

00:30:37--> 00:30:38

nations throughout the world.

00:30:41--> 00:30:56

in history, what came first the written tradition, or the color, or the oral tradition, it was always the oral tradition. The written tradition is merely a prop, a means of support for the oral tradition.

00:30:58--> 00:31:03

Otherwise, throughout history, most of the creation has always relied on oral traditions.

00:31:05--> 00:31:05

And

00:31:08--> 00:31:11

oral traditions were very accurate, were very precise.

00:31:13--> 00:31:14

There is

00:31:16--> 00:31:17

there is a record

00:31:18--> 00:31:19

of

00:31:20--> 00:31:22

someone who traveled to

00:31:25--> 00:31:26

someone who

00:31:27--> 00:31:28

provided

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

a lineage

00:31:32--> 00:31:33

from their oral tradition.

00:31:36--> 00:31:39

And the lineage went back many, many generations.

00:31:40--> 00:31:46

And most people thought this lineage was an act of what was fictitious, it just wasn't true.

00:31:47--> 00:31:51

And for generations, people believe this lineage to be true.

00:31:53--> 00:32:00

And recently, when they actually went and researched, they went back to Africa, and research this

00:32:01--> 00:32:03

lineage, they discovered

00:32:05--> 00:32:07

that indeed, it was true.

00:32:08--> 00:32:11

And this was amongst those people who have no history of writing.

00:32:14--> 00:32:27

The point is, that the oral tradition has always been the main tradition of passing on knowledge. And this is exactly how the Arabs were. for them. The oral tradition matters more than the written tradition.

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

And this is why

00:32:34--> 00:32:44

one thing that is required, especially in religion, and in learning about religion, and in academia, is patience.

00:32:49--> 00:32:50

One of the orlimar told me

00:32:52--> 00:32:53

that

00:32:58--> 00:32:59

he says I was,

00:33:00--> 00:33:05

this is a very famous scholar. He said, I was very

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

skeptical in my youth.

00:33:11--> 00:33:20

And my father sent me to the real amount to learn. I would hound them with questions with questions, always questioning them. I was very skeptical.

00:33:21--> 00:33:29

I had been deeply affected by non religious tradition by a hostile tradition. So I was actually quite hostile in my questioning.

00:33:32--> 00:33:38

And so what I learned, and this is the message I'm giving to you, who said to me, what I've learned,

00:33:39--> 00:33:41

is Be patient.

00:33:42--> 00:33:57

And he said, sometimes 40 years have passed. And he's very old. Now. You said 40 years past, and only after 40 years? Did I discover the validity of what some of my teachers will say

00:33:58--> 00:33:59

40 years later.

00:34:00--> 00:34:04

And this is someone who was very skeptical, very questioning in his early days.

00:34:06--> 00:34:08

Patience. I'll give you another example.

00:34:12--> 00:34:15

Many academics are questioning the authenticity of the holy war.

00:34:17--> 00:34:20

Because the argument was that we have no

00:34:21--> 00:34:24

verifiable copies of the forearm

00:34:28--> 00:34:42

after the third century, until after the third century of Islam, so we have known manuscripts, or actual physical copies of the Quran, before the beginning of the fourth century. This was

00:34:44--> 00:35:00

quite some time ago. So on that basis, they ruled that the Quran was actually fabricated, and it developed gradually as a work with certain Arabs over a period of 300 years, and that the Quran did not

00:35:00--> 00:35:12

Take its full form until the beginning of the fourth century. And the basis for this argument was that there are no physical copies of manuscripts available of the holy book and before the beginning of the fourth century.

00:35:14--> 00:35:21

And many people relied on this. Then after decades, they began discovering manuscripts

00:35:23--> 00:35:24

that were actually carbon dated,

00:35:26--> 00:35:32

and cross reference with other materials. And they were able to arrive at quite precise dates.

00:35:35--> 00:35:57

So the dates were moved back. So the same people now began accepting that, yes, the arm, we accept that arm was available in physical form, in the mid third century of Islam, so they moved back a few decades. And then as the decades progressed, more and more manuscripts came to light. And

00:35:58--> 00:36:06

the dates were shifted back further and further, until last year, I read that one of the manuscripts they discovered,

00:36:10--> 00:36:11

was so old.

00:36:13--> 00:36:31

That they date it as the latest meaning the latest that they say, it can't be any later than this. It's possibly earlier, but not any later than this was, during the time we'll see them out with one of my family the alarm within 15 years of the passing away of Rasulullah sallallahu.

00:36:34--> 00:36:38

It's not the full manuscript, but part of not the whole part and the part of it.

00:36:39--> 00:36:42

So within a number of decades,

00:36:43--> 00:36:45

skeptical academics

00:36:46--> 00:36:54

have traveled back almost 300 years in that dating of the availability of the holy book.

00:36:55--> 00:36:59

Why do I mention this is because the same thing has been done with Eddie.

00:37:02--> 00:37:08

We have an oral tradition in Islam. This is why the Olimar have always taught in an oral manner.

00:37:11--> 00:37:12

Our

00:37:13--> 00:37:18

our speeches, our sermons have always been oral, our tradition has been all

00:37:22--> 00:37:24

for the students of knowledge, if I can explain.

00:37:28--> 00:37:29

Even the books of

00:37:30--> 00:37:33

the written tradition was always a prop and a support

00:37:35--> 00:37:36

for the oral tradition,

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

not Rama always

00:37:41--> 00:37:49

taught and related the Hadeeth with a verbal transmission. If I can give you the example of Mr. Mallika,

00:37:51--> 00:38:11

before I do, let me continue with that explanation about the written tradition, that he's one of the arguments for the Hadees which we hear quite commonly, regularly. The old teeth were fabricated. 300 years after the prophet SAW the law it was on them some interesting date that is exactly the same date that was given for the fabrication of the

00:38:13--> 00:38:19

300 years. And now we hear it again regularly. These are a fabrication

00:38:20--> 00:38:34

of 300 years after it's after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the reason I mentioned 300 years is because most of them well not most, but many of the collections of Hadith are more famous collections are from the third century of Islam.

00:38:36--> 00:38:38

Since the these were the famous authors

00:38:40--> 00:38:44

among Heidi de la he had a died in 256 history

00:38:45--> 00:39:05

in my humble in 241 hingedly your mom dad me in 255 injury man Muslim in 261 injury your mom did me the into him I'm even imagining 273 at the moment. I would I wouldn't 275 Eman Timothy into 79. He these are the famous states.

00:39:07--> 00:39:22

So most of that will Mr. That we are familiar with not the actual collectors of heavy but the ones the names are we are familiar with are from the third century or later in madness. He actually died in the beginning of the fourth century 303 history.

00:39:24--> 00:39:26

And these are just some of the more famous names.

00:39:27--> 00:39:32

For this reason. The common argument is that they have these were fabricated in the third century.

00:39:34--> 00:39:35

And they never existed before.

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

But similar to that.

00:39:39--> 00:39:53

We began with the data 300 years, but gradually the data was pushed back as more and more manuscripts became available, including that Silverman Monica Lahiri who died in 179 he

00:39:54--> 00:40:00

Imam Mohammed Hassan shavon his books. He died in 189 history some of you

00:40:00--> 00:40:06

Man who uses books, he died in 181 HD, and it moved back even further and further.

00:40:08--> 00:40:09

Your Man Man

00:40:10--> 00:40:11

who died in 154.

00:40:14--> 00:40:19

And then all the way back further to the serif of mommy blog,

00:40:22--> 00:40:32

and others. So now gradually from 300 years with the discovery of manuscripts, we've discovered manuscripts all the way up to the beginning of the second century of Islam.

00:40:33--> 00:40:37

And the one interesting thing is that it's an oral tradition.

00:40:40--> 00:40:41

In Germany,

00:40:42--> 00:40:49

during the before the outbreak of the Second World War, a number of German academics who were leading

00:40:51--> 00:40:58

researchers in the field of the Holy Koran, they actually collected 1000s and 1000s of copies of the Holy Quran,

00:41:00--> 00:41:04

many of which were unfortunately lost because of the war.

00:41:07--> 00:41:30

And they originally collected the manuscripts with a view to proving this theory that the Quran was a fabrication of later generations. And yet, with the discovery of the many, many different manuscripts that were forced to ultimately admit that despite these old and ancient manuscripts that go back way before what we had first imagined.

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

One thing we have learned is that there is no significant difference in the collection of these manuscripts and the program that is available throughout the world today. It's

00:41:43--> 00:41:55

the same with that Howdy, as the Hadeeth. manuscripts were discovered more and more, and we back the earlier manuscripts only proved what were oral transmission of the later generation show.

00:41:56--> 00:42:00

And the reason is that oral transmission has always been part of Islam.

00:42:01--> 00:42:22

We don't have a written tradition as much as we have an oral tradition. It goes back all the way to the sort of last aloha It was a last panel with Anna sent gibreel and he said on gibreel alayhis, salaam came sort of pseudo Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam not with the book or with the Holy Quran, and he delivered the params Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he delivered the Quran to this harbor of the Allahu

00:42:25--> 00:42:41

la saison en la COVID de la sonically tangela Bay in Melina jehova, Corona, Corona, Corona in Marina, Briana, even if we don't look at these, these words again explain the same thing la says do not hate them with your tongue.

00:42:43--> 00:42:46

Not move your tongue in order to haste and with

00:42:47--> 00:42:49

the reciting of the port.

00:42:50--> 00:43:03

Don't worry in Marlena Jamal who it is our duty It is our responsibility or prophets of Allah, to recite the Quran to you and to collect the tree in your heart.

00:43:06--> 00:43:11

From in marilena biana, then it is also our duty to explain the product.

00:43:12--> 00:43:40

So ultimately, not only have the words come from Allah, through His Messenger, but even the beyond and the explanation of the words of the poem have come from Allah through gibreel through a sort of lustful allottee or something. That verse also shows. And to give you an example about the Allah sees what Anna in Marlena Jamal who it is our duty to gather the poor and collected were in your heart, what an honor, it is our duty to recite the warranty

00:43:41--> 00:43:44

is that significant? It is.

00:43:45--> 00:43:47

Language is a very strange thing.

00:43:49--> 00:43:52

in place in many places throughout the world.

00:43:53--> 00:43:58

They say that language is the language changes every 12 villages.

00:44:02--> 00:44:16

In some parts of Europe, in the mountainous regions, they say Every valley used to have its own language. Every valley had its own language people were separated from each other for a prolonged period of time that resulted in

00:44:17--> 00:44:18

different languages.

00:44:20--> 00:44:29

When it comes to accents, even now, despite modern instant communication, the whole world becoming a global village, we still have regional accents.

00:44:31--> 00:44:38

from one city to another, the language is the same. Some words are different, the pronunciation of the words is different.

00:44:40--> 00:44:56

And yet another thing is that this is that and even the pronunciation of the words of the same language in the same place changes decade by decade, generation by generation. listen to the

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

radio broadcasts.

00:45:00--> 00:45:24

Or the TV announcements have Received Pronunciation 10 years ago and go back 10 years and go back 10 years and go back 10 years just in the English language, and you will detect the distinct difference in the pronunciation, the language and its style every couple of years. And that's just for a couple of years. And in contrast to that, Muslims are spread all over the world,

00:45:25--> 00:45:26

all over the world,

00:45:28--> 00:45:31

in every continent, and

00:45:33--> 00:45:40

most of them don't understand the Arabic language. Most of the Muslims do not understand the Arabic language. It's not their native tongue.

00:45:42--> 00:45:51

They don't understand a word. And yet, 14 centuries later, you may have a child in China

00:45:54--> 00:46:24

reciting salt and fat, and you have a child in Morocco, recite some sort of confetti, you may have a child in Siberia, and a child in America beside him sort of profoundly her 14 year centuries after sort of Allah sallallahu wasallam their pronunciation and their recitation not just the recitation, but even their intonations and their pronunciation and their style of pronunciation that there are and that the dream is exactly the same.

00:46:27--> 00:46:47

Why? Because this comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala in Melina Jim Khurana, it is our duty to collect the eye in your heart and to recite it for you that got our foot the big earner, Allah says so Mohammed a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when we have read the Quran and the meaning of when we have read the Quran,

00:46:48--> 00:47:28

or even gibreel has read the Quran on our palms. So you don't have to, like members of the alarm explains us in academic record when I'm Amber hardy in history and by others, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when gibreel alayhis salaam would meet and he would move his lips to follow the prophets to follow gibreel alayhis salam because you would fear forgetting the words. So our last panel with Anna said do not move your lips in order to hasten with the arm Do not worry in that Alina Juma hora. It is our duty to collect the Koran completely in your hearts. And it is our duty to recite the Quran to you for that partner for. So when we have read the Quran minimum jabril

00:47:28--> 00:48:08

alayhis salam has read the Quran on our behalf, then you follow his recitation from the Melina biana, then it is our duty to explain the program. This is why we say not only have the words come from Allah through jabril, through the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, through this harbottle the law and through that snad and chain all the way to us. But even that has come through that same chain and not only has come through that same chain, even the beyond the explanation of the Quran, and the meaning of its words, has come through the same chain from Allah through gibreel alayhis salam through the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam through the noble Sahaba of the law, and their

00:48:08--> 00:48:11

students and their students all the way to as this is the oral tradition.

00:48:12--> 00:48:23

I was mentioning earlier about the oral tradition being paramount in Islam, not the written tradition. I'll give you an example. In my mind, he could not understand the law here and he is famous collection of Hadeeth and wapa.

00:48:25--> 00:48:41

For many generations, academics non Muslim academics believe that the Bible is the oldest collection of hobbies we had. But now more and more manuscripts were discovered a sense have been discovered since and the dates have been pushed back further and the earlier discoveries.

00:48:44--> 00:48:45

For instance,

00:48:47--> 00:48:55

one of the earliest is a safe of malleable mana. Mom is one of the narrator's to be found in the chains of transmission later.

00:48:57--> 00:49:18

Now, generations later with the discovery of the earlier manuscripts, wherever her mom appears in the chains of narration of a Hadith, you can compare the studies collected by a scholar two centuries later. And you can compare that with the Hadith in the scripture of Imam of numana.

00:49:19--> 00:49:29

Because he was in the chain of transmission, and you can check both are exactly the same. Because that is the oral transmission, the oral tradition of Islam.

00:49:30--> 00:49:33

As I said earlier on for the students I've had Ethan

00:49:35--> 00:49:36

if you look a man Monaco

00:49:37--> 00:49:44

Monaco de la he had a he passed away in 179. He Emmanuel hardy wasn't born to 194

00:49:46--> 00:49:52

and yet you have many of Imam Malik Javi in the sorry in Buhari

00:49:54--> 00:49:55

but do you know how

00:49:58--> 00:50:00

Mr. Malik smartbar has many additional

00:50:02--> 00:50:11

And but on average, if you look, there are approximately 700, and more of these in the collections on the cloud.

00:50:14--> 00:50:16

And if you look at the collection of savings,

00:50:18--> 00:50:25

again, the number of chains in which Mr. Malik features is the same 700 approximately the reason

00:50:27--> 00:50:41

the man hurry does not say, remember how it relates through intermediary. So some of his teachers like Abdullah, Yusuf Abdullah, Muslim, they relate from him. These are the famous students of America, they were the teachers around the party.

00:50:42--> 00:50:44

So when they would relate the heavy

00:50:45--> 00:50:46

Imam,

00:50:49--> 00:50:58

Imam Abdullah, Abdullah Hebrew use for the students of Imam Malik, they wouldn't just relate to an oral tradition, they have their own copies of them, or

00:50:59--> 00:51:01

they have their own copies.

00:51:03--> 00:51:10

And when Mr. mojari took these Hadith of the his teachers who were the students of Mr. Malik,

00:51:11--> 00:51:24

he had his own more of ematic from his teachers. And yet, in Bihar, you won't find for instance, him saying that, oh, I read in this collection, I read in this collection, you won't.

00:51:25--> 00:52:00

He just mentioned it orally, because that is the main tradition of Islam, an oral tradition on oral transmission, they would have their books, but these were mainly support. So he will say, of the library use of related to us from Malik, he will say I'm delighted and Muslim are related to us from Malik. What he's actually saying verbally they relate to this. And along with that, they would have their copies of them walk by with, you wouldn't say, I've got I got from them. What have Malik the addition and the copy of I'm delighted in the use of all the additional copy of Abdullah no Muslim.

00:52:03--> 00:52:41

That's just an example. This is what all that when am I have done when you find these chains of transmission? Not always, but in most cases, they would have written copies as support with them. So why not just mentioned the written copies, because the tradition of Islam all the way from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And before him gibreel alayhis salam and before him. The last panel with our other is an oral tradition is a verbal transmission. This is why we attached such importance to the idea in the manner that we study it. We don't just dish books out and tell everyone find the commentary and study the Hadees by yourselves or the aura.

00:52:45--> 00:52:47

Even when it comes to just teaching sort of

00:52:49--> 00:52:57

when the teacher in the muck, or the tub says to the child, how did we learn a handle? So the child says

00:52:58--> 00:53:11

lilla lilla? Aguilera the mean? The mean, do you know even that tradition stretches back? Some people say we're in the modern day, we have technology.

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

We're in the space age? Why do we have this old system of children learning in that manner, these MCQ dubs where the teacher says I'll handle and the child says I'll handle? Why don't we just have multimedia systems? panela. You know, even that tradition? Who does it stretch back to? It doesn't just stretch back to this harbottle the alarm of the law. The law says I'll memorize 70 complete salts directly from the novel mouth of law. And in that article said

00:53:49--> 00:53:51

it doesn't just stretch back to the Sahaba.

00:53:52--> 00:53:56

What did what does the law say in that verse? for you that are now for

00:53:58--> 00:54:42

that Henrik behavior sonica with Angela be in marilena Jim Lockwood, Erna for either math or aroma, or prophet of Allah. Do not move your tongue in order to hate him with the meaning remaining silent. Listen to Djibouti. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was silent gibreel alayhis salaam would read once Jubilee Alayhi Salaam finished his recite recitation. Allah says for that. But then when we have read meaning gibreel has read on our behalf. For Honor, you follow his recitation, this manner of reading where the teacher says on handle, and then the student listens attentively and says, I'll handle after him. Even that simple memorization, or that simple method of learning how to

00:54:42--> 00:54:48

read that stretches back not only to this, how about the alarm, but gibreel alayhis salam and the messengers

00:54:50--> 00:54:52

that is our oral tradition.

00:54:53--> 00:54:59

This is why we don't just hand the baton over and say read and study it yourself. We don't just give a book

00:55:00--> 00:55:07

Have Hadeeth and say, read, find the commentary, it's a translation in English, you're intelligent enough, you've proficient and

00:55:11--> 00:55:50

verbally competent in English, read and understand. Now, these are merely props and support our whole tradition, not just of the words, but of the pronunciation, the recitation, the intonation, even the accent of the Arabic, even of the Quran, and even the Hadith is one even the commentary of the Hadith is an oral verbal tradition, which is interlinked with a complete chain stretching from us all the way to the sort of laughs a lot more It was a limb and before him through gibreel, and a histogram to Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is how our Creator communicated with his creation.

00:55:53--> 00:56:10

This is why we have the study of the youth in this manner. This is why we attached such importance to a live instructor the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to attach importance to the heavy, what does a lot same sort of with God and allow you to laugh, he will use the condom in Isaiah to learn

00:56:11--> 00:56:13

and remember a why's of the message.

00:56:15--> 00:56:15

Remember,

00:56:18--> 00:56:27

and frequently repeats, and rehearse that which is recited that which is you recite it

00:56:29--> 00:56:50

in your homes of IR Attila the verses of Allah that much we can understand. Remember the recitation of the verses of Allah. But he doesn't just suffice with that. Allah says, Well hikma and wisdom. So the wives of the messengers of Allah Almighty, send them were told to remember, and to rehearse

00:56:52--> 00:57:11

that which is recited in the noble homes of the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wasallam of the verses of Allah and wisdom, what's the hekima? What's this other wisdom that they are supposed to that is actually recited and repeated in the homes that they should guard and preserve and look after, and remember,

00:57:12--> 00:57:15

that is the son of a sword of law. So the law.

00:57:17--> 00:57:28

This is why we say it's not just the arm, it's the sort of law he has set out. Of course, it's secondary, in importance to the noble, but

00:57:30--> 00:57:31

indeed, to second,

00:57:32--> 00:57:54

just as the Messenger of Allah comes after Allah, the words of the Messenger of Allah come after the words of Allah. Just as there is no obedience of Allah without the obedience of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there is no understanding or receiving the words of alarm with that understanding and receiving the words of the messengers of the law.

00:57:55--> 00:58:36

This is why that how the for so important, unfortunately, we are seeing the fulfillment of the prophecy of a sort of law, and he has set out or said, in which he said, let me not find any one of you reclining on a couch satiated and filled saying here we have the book of a law before as what we find to be permissible in the book of Allah, we will regard as being permissible what we find in forbidden in the book of Allah we regard as being forbidden. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, lo and behold, know that that which the Messenger of Allah permits is like what alas permitted, and that was the messenger sallallahu Sallam has forbidden is like what a last bit

00:58:39--> 00:58:41

baddies is indispensable

00:58:42--> 00:59:00

for an interdependent they rely on each other. Without these there is no understanding of the words of Allah. That is not understanding of the holy war. There is no Salah there is no Zakah there is no hedge, there is no CRM, there is no fasting there is no religion.

00:59:04--> 00:59:10

If someone wants to say alarm, he says, a theme solar established solar and solar simply means prayer.

00:59:12--> 00:59:12

It does.

00:59:16--> 00:59:19

In fact, in the Quran, says Americana sold out in the beta Illa mocha.

00:59:21--> 00:59:34

Allah condemns the Salah of the operation of the pagans before the arrival of Islam and Allah says their Salah by the House of Allah by the carrabba was simply mocha autosteer which means whistling and clapping.

00:59:36--> 00:59:41

So they used to perform the walk around the garba whistling and clapping

00:59:43--> 00:59:47

that was that the wife and a lot of calls that saw also

00:59:48--> 00:59:49

that is Sala

00:59:51--> 01:00:00

so one could argue that Salah simply means prayer can be in any form, maybe whistling and dancing. Maybe just raising your hands, maybe just muttering

01:00:00--> 01:00:14

A few words that Allah ultimately, nowhere does it say five times with these prescribed hours. So, I established Salah by muttering a few words, what arguments will we have against that?

01:00:16--> 01:00:28

There is no religion without the Hadith, Allah saw Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and those who even now dispense with the Hadees. How do they pray? How do they perform their pilgrimage? How do they perform

01:00:29--> 01:00:33

the rights of their religion? And its rituals? How do they fast?

01:00:35--> 01:01:09

strangely, that's the law, and they're fasting and that hedge and their method of giving xhaka is no different to the rest of the Muslims, who say, Where did you get your saliva from? The tradition of the community, the history of the community. So some common law, the tradition of the community, though, you may have become warped and distorted by ignorance over the generations and centuries, that tradition is a valid source of religion, but of the community, but not that not the traditional Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

01:01:15--> 01:01:19

This is why they attach such importance to have ease and they went

01:01:21--> 01:01:30

through a lot of trouble. They underwent trials and tribulations and great struggles in order to gather the heavy mammal harder to learn and he was

01:01:31--> 01:01:51

wealthy to some degree because he was a trader. They spent all his money in a search for heavy and in doing so. He says there were times when I was so poor, that I had no food and I ate grass continuously for three days. In order to collect your mom.

01:01:52--> 01:02:07

Today, the teacher of your mom will Hardy and he died. He died 15 years before Mambo hardy in 241. Henry, your mom, humble ravintola his collection of Hades is the largest known collection we have at the moment

01:02:08--> 01:02:14

with a complete chain of narration he has approximately 27,000 have Ethan is Muslim, Imam

01:02:15--> 01:02:21

Ali this Eman or that Allison novel jamara and the man of the Muslims. He says that

01:02:22--> 01:02:46

I traveled to Makkah in order to learn and listen to these from my teachers. And I used to earn my own living. So during the day I used to go out and work as a coolie. He used to be a luggage carrier. So if someone wanted any luggage to be carried, he would carry it for them from place to place spot spots, and they will pay him he was a coolie. And that was your mom.

01:02:48--> 01:02:50

Your mom Yeah, even a marine.

01:02:51--> 01:02:56

He saves that when my father passed away, he left behind

01:02:58--> 01:03:01

1,050,000 dirhams

01:03:02--> 01:03:04

1,050,000.

01:03:08--> 01:03:09

And over the years

01:03:11--> 01:03:19

depending on the price of silver and silver, the equivalent A few years ago, it was about one pound 10

01:03:20--> 01:03:21

per kilogram.

01:03:22--> 01:03:23

And

01:03:24--> 01:03:45

again, because of the price continuously fluctuates at times as being more I don't know the exact price now. But it's definitely more at one time it was actually close to two pounds. So the price of one denim was close to two pounds. But even now it's quite valuable. But let's go by the 1 million figure one to one that's well over

01:03:47--> 01:04:02

1.1 million pounds. So he says when I when my father passed away, he bequeathed to me over a million pounds sterling. He said I spent all of it's in the search of Hadeeth summit so that I became so poor that I could not afford straps for my sandals.

01:04:03--> 01:04:05

I could not afford sandals.

01:04:06--> 01:04:22

That one amendment threw a lot in their search for the Ethan's collection. last panel data employed them. They didn't just discover the Hadeeth or find it or fabricated. They collected the oral tradition as I explained that was already there. And they merely document it.

01:04:26--> 01:04:28

And their memory was prodigious.

01:04:29--> 01:04:31

miraculous remarkable.

01:04:34--> 01:04:43

And this is what aided them. The Arabs were people with an oral tradition who do not rely on notes. They generally have a good memory.

01:04:45--> 01:04:47

And in fact, even now

01:04:48--> 01:04:50

those who wish to improve their memory

01:04:51--> 01:04:54

should be become less reliant on maps.

01:04:56--> 01:04:57

Take notes mentally

01:05:00--> 01:05:06

When we shift and transfer the burden of memory from our minds to paper,

01:05:08--> 01:05:09

we develop

01:05:10--> 01:05:16

a dependence on that paper. And we reduce our natural ability to remember.

01:05:18--> 01:05:24

And that's why we've become so dependent. This is why we can't remember what we had for breakfast and question the memory of the thing.

01:05:28--> 01:05:30

Indeed, they had a prodigious memory.

01:05:33--> 01:05:34

And he was alive.

01:05:36--> 01:05:44

When he once entered the city, they wanted to test him because they had heard about him his memory, and they wanted to test him when they gathered,

01:05:46--> 01:05:53

that will allow that time they they reveled in memorizing for the youth and testing one another finding

01:05:54--> 01:05:56

for them it was that's what they enjoyed doing.

01:05:59--> 01:06:01

They enjoyed

01:06:02--> 01:06:05

relating to these in a very obscure manner.

01:06:08--> 01:06:14

So, for instance, mumble ha de la la, would visit some people who once said that

01:06:15--> 01:06:23

you all know these ahaadeeth and they said yes, we know these, we all know them by heart, with the complete change of transmission.

01:06:25--> 01:06:31

He says, I will relate the same fidelity, but in a unique manner, such a manner

01:06:32--> 01:06:38

that you have heard these Hadith and your chains of Hadith go through scholars from other regions.

01:06:39--> 01:06:46

But I will relate the same Hadith T, but with the scholars from your own region.

01:06:49--> 01:07:20

So they would revel in relating these in these in this obscure manner, because this is what they lived and breathed. They love the heat of a sword Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and normal memorization. Normal collection had become so natural and so normal, that in order to revel in order to stimulate their minds, they would have to resort to these kinds of methods of relating had eaten, you know, obscure men and testing one another in an obscure man.

01:07:21--> 01:07:31

Mr. Hardy was a master of maps. That's why he says once he says, Mr. Sultan, FC Illa de admin Medina, Obama.

01:07:35--> 01:07:39

He says he was so self confident. He says I have never

01:07:41--> 01:08:00

considered myself small before anybody except imagine it, you know, Medina, he intimidated me. I was never intimidated by anyone in their learning and in their knowledge. Except, that doesn't mean he was disrespectful, far from him.

01:08:01--> 01:08:07

He was extremely respectful, but in terms of reliance on what he knew,

01:08:10--> 01:08:16

he was self confidence. He did not consider himself small and intimidated by anyone.

01:08:18--> 01:08:22

very humble and respectful as a student of knowledge should be.

01:08:24--> 01:08:29

So he says I never considered myself small before anyone except Mr. Mallya.

01:08:31--> 01:08:40

But even with such a great Imam as early evening, Medina, Hiroshima, Hola, sometimes awkward Mr. Obama, punto de

01:08:41--> 01:08:42

la hora de, or even like,

01:08:43--> 01:08:47

I would mention the Hadith to him, which he even he did not know.

01:08:49--> 01:09:12

Now, when we say we're not talking about the text, just the text, each of these, with its individual chain of transmission is considered ahaadeeth. In the same text, with a slightly different chain of narration is considered another ID. So when they say for instance, I mentioned the Hadith to him, which even he did not know. It doesn't mean

01:09:13--> 01:09:24

completely tax Far from it. It means with a unique chain of narration with a unique Senate. So I will mention a heavy for the unique Senate, which even he did not know.

01:09:26--> 01:09:35

This is how far they went in their search and collection of these. And this is how prodigious their memory was and that ability was

01:09:36--> 01:09:40

for them memorizing the Hadeeth was like memorizing the holy quarter.

01:09:42--> 01:09:43

It was like what

01:09:45--> 01:09:59

am I learning? Why do we attach such importance to the collection of mahadi? There are so many other collections. The reason is he was very stringent in his conditions and that's why

01:10:00--> 01:10:01

He collected

01:10:02--> 01:10:17

the leads he collected only from the elite of the scholars and the elite of generators. His collection is the cream of the crop. The creme de la creme of heavy indeed is the top.

01:10:20--> 01:10:21

To give you an example,

01:10:22--> 01:10:31

Mr. Malik to learn today, for instance, he had many students, this is just one example. He had many students,

01:10:32--> 01:10:36

Mr. Mallika patrulla, he was regarded as a master of the youth, he had many students.

01:10:37--> 01:10:43

Some students visited him, heard from him for

01:10:44--> 01:10:46

one or two years and then left.

01:10:49--> 01:10:52

There were others who visited him, her just a few had eaten left.

01:10:53--> 01:10:54

There were others

01:10:56--> 01:11:00

who spent a few years with him

01:11:01--> 01:11:04

many years actually. And there were others who spent a lifetime with him.

01:11:06--> 01:11:10

So depending on the amount of time they spent with the teacher,

01:11:11--> 01:11:41

and their own ability, and their level of learning, and the amount of time they spent in the company of their teacher, not just in public, but also in privates, the students were graded. So these are one of the first category then these will amount of the second category, then these are the, what are the third category, these polymer will have the fourth, fifth sixth category. So in just the students have one scholar, they would grade that will amount into categories.

01:11:44--> 01:12:34

So grade one, category one would be those scholars who spent many, many years most of their life with the teacher. And great two would be those category two would be those scholars who spent many years with that teach. degree two would be those teachers, who, those scholars who spent many years with their teacher, but not as much as the closest students of the teacher who are category one, category three were those who spent many years, but they were not as close to the teacher, or as capable as category two Subhana Allah, many of the other alumni, including Mr. Muslim ravintola, healing would take the heavy, even from category three and four, and others would take heavy of this

01:12:34--> 01:12:46

scholar and a rating from his teacher, even though they were off category five and six. Mm hmm. In his condition in his he is that he would only take a hobby from category one. And

01:12:48--> 01:12:57

this is why his hobbies represent the cream of the crop, and that leads of the scholarship of Walmart.

01:12:59--> 01:13:06

And this is why there are so many collections, but nom matches, or even rivals, a collection of

01:13:08--> 01:13:23

his ability, his knowledge, his memorization, his editing of the Hadeeth. And his stringent authentic conditions means that we have the best of the Hadeeth are sort of law, some of the love it was sort of in the form of

01:13:24--> 01:14:10

it so much to say, I pray that Allah subhanho wa I suffice with this and pray that last panel data enables us to understand the significance. In fact, the vital nature and the indispensability of the hadith of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah enable us to maintain this tradition of Islam, of learning through Sunnah and ijazah, through of authenticity, stretching back all the way to the sort of loss of the law and even some of them and through him to gibreel alayhis salaam and through him to Allah subhanho wa Taala we pray that Allah has which will enables all of us to attach ourselves to the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and their application just as we

01:14:10--> 01:14:19

attach ourselves to the words of Allah in the Quran, and that application was a la cosa Lama and I'm thinking what a suti the Vietnam human while he was

01:14:21--> 01:14:22

a lot more comedic I should have

01:14:24--> 01:14:24

missed.
