Has nothing else brought you here? So he said none. He said have you only come in search of this one?
So he said yes, I've only come all the way from Medina. Seeking this one heavy that you relate from a sort of La Silicon Valley.

They are the heirs of the prophets

and barely they did not inherit the narrow on their
way in no matter what it's
rather the only inherited knowledge
from an uncle that we have in welfare.
inherits this knowledge from another whosoever takes it, Verily, he has taken a great share. Indeed,
this is a simple translation of that belief.
And inshallah I'll comment on different parts of this.
First of all, the
question, quick summary of what I've just related. The field, my base, the derby, one of the students of companions of the Allah.
He says that he was seated with so you're gonna get it out of the alarm in the machine of the machine in the machine of Damascus.
Whilst he was in the machine, a man approached him who informed him that he had traveled all the way from the city of Medina.
in those days, it was close to a month journey.
By horse or cat, maybe less by a horse, but by a camel or by a caravan. It was approximately a month.
So the man traveled all the way from Medina
to the mosque, Damascus
and the alarm I'm asked, What brings you here?
Since that, I've heard that you relate a heavy you didn't mention plural ahaadeeth. You mentioned a heavy, the particular heavy.
I have heard that you relate particularly from the sort of La Silla la ecosystem. So I've traveled to you to listen to that have read from
some of the alarm set to him. Have you come for any business for trade? No, have you come for
any of the reason any of the need is said no. Has anything else brought you know?
So you have come all the way from Medina to Damascus, only to hear this one thing that
he said yes.
Well in that case, and then he related to him and want to be useful IDs.
And the Hadith speaks about
knowledge, its virtue, the people of knowledge, their virtue,
and not just their virtue,
but also their responsibility
speaks about traveling for knowledge, embarking on a journey for knowledge, and the virtue of such a journey and such an undertake
some of the a lot more and relate to the Hadeeth to him
of that same virtue,
the virtue of traveling from knowledge and to taking a long journey in order to gain knowledge. And he had done that all the way from the city of Medina, to Damascus. So with that out of the alarm, gave him the glad tidings was that such a heavy thing such a virtue and reward, and he deserved it.
So what is the thought of sort of lust and love it was something he says, When silica free upon your global feeling that whoever treads the path whoever plebs along a path, seek knowledge, they're in a
circle of Elgin law will carry him
baiance on the path to Jim
embarks on a journey of learning
and they are sincere in that pursuit. last panel more than I will open up the doors of knowledge, likes and guidance for and allow will carry them and propelled them along the path of virtue telogen
universal report analyst panel Diana says a jerk meant a lot in normal walk it up and will be Yes, de la Manitoba is one who Sula, Sarah.
We could zoom in a little
bit, where the
Alaska is barely
and a clear book
have come see
through the slides and book
a lot guys, those who follow a lost pleasure
who seek large pleasure.
Allah guides them to what on what
somebody sola salam, Allah guides those who seek and who follow His pleasure
along the paths not one path, but along the paths plural of peace.
We have minimal nomadic
and a light strikes them and removes them from darknesses. Again pool
by his command and permission by his leave,
and where the LSR comes in, and law guides them to the straight path.
So, there are many paths.
Allah guides whoever seeks a large pleasure and is sincere towards a licensee in their relationship with Allah. Allah subhanho wa Danna will guide them not along one single path, but similar Sadam along many different paths, all of peace and all ultimately leading to gentlemen and to the lives and to guidance.
And the law will remove them and extract them from not one darkness but again plural for many darknesses. And Allah will bring them into the singular law of religion of the of Allah.
With the merasa outcomes, the criminal law will guide you to the straight path.
So whoever embarks on a journey of learning,
whether travels in order to learn
and it doesn't have to be physically traveling, but again, just a voyage, a path a journey of learning, insincerity, tool, loss panel data, a local guide, such a person to jump
somewhat so that later by man dealing with the
sun and from nomadic, it'll be a lot more and he says the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Men have to defeat or blame for what needs to be done that day or whoever
in the search of knowledge,
then he is in the path of a lot until he returns
In this tradition,
of going out for knowledge, of traveling from knowledge,
of embarking on a journey on a voyage for learning and for knowledge,
for knowledge, of making sacrifices for knowledge,
this tradition, this
is not just of the dilemma.
It's also the son of the NBA.
It's the son of the Sahaba of the law. And it's actually the tradition of the NBA.
We learn today was Friday.
And it's a prescribed summer.
And a virtuous deed to recite sort of guff on Friday, every Friday.
Muslims have been encouraged to recite sort of guff, specifically on jamara.
And one of the famous stories, and a very long story of sort of poker
is the story of season our Mussa
and season are held
the pie of servants of Allah.
And that whole story
is based on knowledge, on traveling from knowledge on going out in order to learn
and who was traveling to whom, so you're going to move alayhis salaam of all people, he was the one who was traveling for knowledge.
The background to the story is I won't go into too much detail because we didn't have much time. But the background to the story is as related by many authors, including Matt dillahunty, in history, and others. Is that secret I'm sorry, I
Who is the most knowledgeable
amongst the people?
Who is the most knowledgeable on earth?
See than a Musashi his salon replied.
In one narration,
he was asked, Is there anyone more knowledgeable than you?
And he replied in the negative said no, there is not one more knowledgeable than I am.
on the part of you that Musashi has said,
this was a correct times.
because he was the Messenger of Allah. He was a prophet of Allah.
And there is no one more knowledgeable than the prophets of Allah amongst those people.
And say that I'm Muslim, Ali Hassan was unaware of anyone else who genuinely had more knowledge than him. He was after all, gleam Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke directly to him, he conversed with him.
He had that very personal connection with Allah.
So his reply was correct, as far as he
but last panel with the other wish to demonstrate to him
there is someone who has
more knowledge than you. For Allah has bestowed that knowledge on him.
Once he then a Masonic Islam layer on top of that, he was humble.
He wasn't humbled, but he himself was humble.
And his first response was our law. Is there any way of reaching the servants of yours, whom you on whom You have bestowed knowledge that you have not given me?
So lots of water and I said, Yes, there is a path to him. And then a law gave him instructions, he had to follow a certain route he had to witness certain miracles, or after all of which he would then reach and meet this pious servants of Allah, Allah had given
that is the basis of the story of Satan are Moosa and season 118 was set out, which is related in sort of guff. So that whole journey, it was a miraculous journey.
He took his his attendance and students use a moon, and even sat down with him.
And they both traveled, they carried a baskets in which there was fish, and miraculous thing. things occurred on the Djinn. The fish even laptops, of the baskets, and burrowed its way along the shore and leapt into the sea.
And when it laps into the seat, created a tunnel into which lap so much so that the water didn't touch it.
And I'm sorry, his sedan was asleep.
You shall witness that. And he made a note that he would relate this marvelous and miraculous event to say that I must add in Islam when he awoke, but
shavon caused them to forget it.
And they carried on journeying for very long time.
And they were reclining again while they were sleeping next door, reclining on a boulder. And that's where this miraculous event took place. Despite traveling for so long, it was only when he reminded him of the fatigue and hunger of the journey. And it's bringing us our food. He said, Oh, now I remember, this is what happened. So see that I'm also at his salon. So that was our meeting place. So they retrace their steps. And when they arrived there, it was a very strange conversation. But the whole story was, wasn't normal. There were miraculous events, but even the conversation was strange. So then I'm also Elisa Lam. And usually, when they arrived back at that rock, they saw a
figure reclining against the rock, he realized that this was hidden. The person who was looking for when he came and greeted him, and he sort of said, Amati the reply from killer alayhis salaam was one now the other day, and where is the his a piece beyond you? And his reply was, Why is there peace in your land?
And then say that Sally said to him,
we marry him to
see you're going to move to alayhis salam was
a prophet of Allah, the One who was, in his own words, most knowledgeable.
He was very bold,
He told the last panel with another attorney under
our law, show me your self published look at you
see them I'm also early on in marriage. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned and this is mentioned in the
season, I'm also adding the prophets of the law it was seldom written returned with the gift of salah and he met all of them the adding him was Salaam. But no one said anything to him in these terms. So even a moose that he has said and said to him, what did Allah give you as a gift and he said he gave me 50 Salawat 50 prayers for the day. He said, I have tried my own people. Your people will not be able to keep up with these prayers and form them. Go back to Allah and get them reduced. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once that will reduce by five he returned. So then I'm also adding Islam asked him again he said, Go back to a lamb have them reduce. And he did that nine
He kept on going back and having them reduced. So save that I'm also alayhis salaam, mercifully
was bold enough to tell the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam repeatedly go back and get the prayers reduced go back and get the prayers reduced. And even at five he said go back and get the prayers reduced.
So so long for these but see that I'm sorry Hassan was very bold. Such a bold prophets of Allah such a bold messenger.
bold enough to say to say that Adam alayhis salaam
that why did you do what you did?
For you, we were removed from gentlemen.
So he was bold with the MBA and he was saddam. He was bolt he was he spoke to our last panel with Anna in a certain way.
And yet here on this occasion,
he finds himself before someone who he has never met, who he does not know. All he knows of him is that Allah has bestowed certain knowledge on them, which Allah has not given him. And yet this bold messenger of Allah when it came to learning, look at his humility. He says to this same killer alayhis salaam, hello, Debbie rock, Adam Alemany mount
May I follow you?
On the understanding that you will teach
of that which you have been taught in guidance.
And what's that Allah has Saddam's reply to him. Remember, he is the Messenger of Allah. He is gleeman la, nuestra alayhis salam, the prophets of Allah Mousavi hustler, but when lacking verses directly
so what's his reply to him?
Paul in the Columbus to feed America.
Okay for this widow, Allah man and the hobo.
He said, You will not be able to remain patience
with me. And how can you remain patient over that which you cannot which you do not understand?
who sadly pleaded with him.
So the judge only in short, love saw a bit of what I asked him. He said, Look, you will find me patient
and someone so that I won't ever disobeyed you. I'll follow your commands.
Either finish the baton for
the silica men holy crap. He wants to follow him in order to learn from him.
And how can anyone learn without asking question? How can anyone learn?
Without asking questions? Yes, even more sadly, his salon was told clearly that if you follow
do not fill out this only unshaped. Do not ask me about anything until I speak to you of it first.
So you're going to move slowly his extensive all of the stringent conditions.
Something happened so you're going I'm also adding salon
You said to him, I told you not to ask me.
My mistake, something else happened so that I'm also adding to them asked him again, couldn't contain himself.
He said See, I told you you would not be able to remain patient.
Now do not ask me again. If you ask me again. We will have to part
third time something immense happened. So then I asked him a third time.
Because then I like Sam said to him right?
This is the time of parting between us. You cannot remain with me.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says
a lot more Sammy Allah mercy on Musa alayhis salam had he remained patient, we would have learned so much more.
But this whole journey was miraculous and very strange of a different world altogether. Indeed, it was of a different dimension and a different world. But the point which I wish to make his
being humble, making sacrifices,
expanding an efforts in order to learn.
This is not just the summer of the trilemma of Islam. It's not just the Sunnah of the Sahaba of the alarm. It's a symbol of the unreality
and that's the whole basis of the story of see that our Musashi Hassan, which we would have read today, in sort of, in our weekly recitation on Juma
and when it came to this habit of the alarm,
the alarm and
he, the narrator, he adopted that example himself.
The alarm was a man of great knowledge. He was one of the rrr if you recall, last week, I was speaking about the term otter are amongst us have out of the line. And the word oughterard does not just mean reciters. As we understand them, the word or art means reciters but for the Sahaba of the love, in that time, the term or art we've seen that meant a scholar of the order
Not just the words or that recitation, but rather the meanings. And he, they were genuinely the scholars of the court and one of those scholars was tell you that
he was poor.
And he was actually taunted for his poverty
and for his apparent devotion to knowledge,
but he himself says that I attempted
to do trade business, he said, I attempted to, I attempted to do the Java,
trade and worship. But I realized that I could not combine successfully combine the Java and Java. So I left the Java and I devoted myself to it.
And learning, he was a man of great knowledge. He was a scholar of the
one of the famous scholars of the Sahaba of the lower income of the poor.
And we learned at the beginning of the Hadees, that he wasn't Damascus in the machine, in that same machine of Damascus. Every morning, after federal Salah, he used to have gatherings halaqaat circles, all of these jeebies. what he would do is
after federal solar, he would, he would, upon completion of his federal solar, he would recite one judges of the court. And all of these students would gather around him in circling him and listening to
reciting one whole gist of the Quran. And then after listening to him, they would divide themselves into groups of 10. And they would all read to each other. And they would imitate and copy his recitation, and it's still our,
and not just in our he would teach also,
on one occasion, remember, this is after federal solar. On one occasion, he said, count the number of students who were there, listening to him, circling him, and then dividing themselves in small groups of 10, listening to his spot and learning for an amongst themselves. And you know what the number was 1600.
Lots of you 1600, more than 16.
So he was a scholar and a man of the whole record.
And he was a master teacher of the aura. And yet he himself seems that if I was to forget one verse of the Quran,
if I was made to forget a single verse,
and then I had no way of retrieving that verse or regaining it,
from one person who was in miracle as a man, and we'll call him out is on the southern coast of Yemen.
And where is he in Damascus, is that our travel all the way to Biblical amount of demand on the southern coast of Yemen, in order to retrieve that one single verse from him that I had forgotten?
I although he never had to do it, he expressed his willingness to travel across the whole Arabian peninsula, and that whole desert, all the way from Damascus to the southern coast of Yemen, to Biblical demand.
Medical demand was a place that was often referred to in their poetry in their language, because it's like it was on the southern coast.
Just like we say in English john o'Groats to Land's End. So these are the two furthers places. So similarly, the Arab poets and the Arabs in general, when they would refer to the southernmost tip of the Arabian Peninsula, they would normally say biblical Lima. So he says, and he was in Damascus, he wasn't into Medina or Makkah, was all the way up in Damascus. He said if I was mean to forget a single verse, and I had no way of retrieving that verse, except traveling all the way to critical of him and and retrieving it from someone there.
His willingness to undertake such a long and arduous journey, for the sake of one single verse of the holy crap.
And that's exactly how this How about on the line where knowledge is not easy. Without that.
We speak about the virtue of knowledge. And here in
the first words of the Buddha himself for the alarm who relates that I heard the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, Man, silica, you're gonna be here in a while.
trends are path. seeking knowledge there in psychological behavior you can lm genma, Allah will carry him by it's along the path to gentlemen. But
not gaining knowledge is not easy.
It requires sacrifice. It requires expense.
It requires an effort.
It requires a great undertaking, sincerity of intention, purity of motive, and even traveling and journey. It means sacrificing one's time one's leisure. Law says in the Quran,
you will never attain virtue, you will never attain righteousness until you spend that which you love. And it doesn't just mean well.
That's why in Islam, charity isn't just about wealth. Charity is about spending of that which we love and which we hold there.
Which means giving of our time, sharing our time sharing our wealth, sharing our emotion, all of this is charity. This is why we saw the loss and the love it was cinema has taught us
the meaning of charity in that have, we haven't been told just to drop a few coins in a can.
We've been told to share, share food, share a dent, share a plate, share a meal,
Share of our time and our emotions. When we go to visit someone who's sick, they may be wealthier than us. And we will not be able to offer them anything in military terms. We may not be able to even help them medic,
the most we can do is go and say a few good works. But even that visit is an act of service.
So in Islam, charity is not just about sharing wealth, sharing everything, sharing that which you love. That's why here the verse says, You will never attain piety and virtue until you spend of that which you love. Now we love wealth. But for those who are relatively comfortable,
we may have excess wealth, our time is precious.
So we might be we might be willing to absent mindedly and dismissively give a few pounds to someone in charity, even if it means getting them off our back.
That is not
in a way we buying our relief and comfort and peace of mind. And a few moments of our precious time, we buying that by giving a few pounds away.
If our time is so precious to us, and indeed our time is precious to us and valuable. If we do not spend of that time which we love, we have not attained true Southern cherubs and we will never attain true virtue and similarly when it comes to knowledge, when it comes to sacrificing things, it means sacrificing those things that we love, our leisure, our time our comfort, only then will we be regarded as one of those who embarks on that journey on that voyage on that path of learning knowledge so that a lot of without adding carriers to the path of Jim
along the path of Jim that's how that's how a lot of the alarm and look at the sacrifice and the efforts that so you're going to lose that in his salon made.
The same for the Sahaba the alarm,
Set the same.
The same ambilight must order the alarm set the same. Mr. Mahajan, Mr. Muslim rattler Halima both same in both relate in the collections that see them Abdullah grimace all that will be aligned and who was Abdullah when was the scholar and sage of us have out of the line?
A man of great knowledge.
See the father of the alarm was once in
someone approached him and said oatmeal and what mean what do you say of a man
who recites the Koran in a way
Which is different to the others.
This was known as that. So,
Barbara, your loved one can extremely angry. And he bellowed at the top of his horse,
who is this? Who dares to read in a manner different to the others.
And the man said that he is in Kufa, all the way in Iraq in Kufa. So
the alarm became extremely angry. And the words of the narration are, he became so angry that he began to bloat in anger. In his rage, he actually believed, and he grew large.
And he filled with all he frightened and terrified all of those who are around him.
And then he Bella, who is this who dares to read in a manner of difference? Who could challenge you than I would have been the last one. And the man said, I'm delighted.
When seeing the number of the alarm, even in his extreme anger and intense rage, heard the name of Abdullah and muscle, there'll be a lot one is suddenly calm.
And then he said,
If Abdullah, who was rude is reading in the manner that you describe, then he is deserving and entitled and worthy of reading in
a man like so you and
your lover I have the utmost respect. So I'm loving them, so there'll be a law firm. He dispatched him to golfer and he sent a letter to them saying, people have gufa I wanted to enjoy the company of ignoring America. This was a name of Abdullah Massoud, but the a lot more than you but I have given you privileged preference over myself of the company of Abdullah.
So he was a man of great knowledge that same Abdullah the alarm remember hiding among Muslim ram to learn him, I both relate that Abdullah Massoud, there'll be a lot more mo said, I have memorized more than 70 swords directly from the math of a sword in law, some of the law it was. And if I and there is no verse in the Quran, except that I know when it was revealed and when it was revealed. And if I knew anyone who was more knowledgeable than I am of the holy book, and camels would reach him, I would travel to him to gain that knowledge.
But there wasn't one, and Shafiq says that I would go and sit in the gatherings of the Sahaba of the alarm. And people would relate these words of Abdullah mushroom, and no one amongst the companions would reject the words of Abdullah.
They recognize his knowledge, but the point I wish to make is, what did he say? If I knew anyone more knowledgeable of the arm than I am, and camels would reach him, I will travel.
These were the heart of the alarm. They will be willing to travel for the verses of the holy quarter for a single verse of the poor unlikable the Ummah Juan Juan de la de la, despite being scholars of the poor and themselves, when it came to heavy
job it would not be la rue de la was a young company.
It was very good.
In fact, of the
seven to five people who gave birth to Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam unbelievable acaba on the ninth of October.
In the final year before the hidden
when the 75 people from Medina came and they pledged there.
They gave some there, they actually saw the loss and a lot more it was him inviting him to Medina jabiru magdala hold the alarm was present. And he was the youngest member of the law firm amongst all of all the 75 years as according some reports, he was only 16 years old at that time. When he gave
in late October. He was very young, and being young, he was able to enjoy the company have a sort of lust and love it, some of them and move around because he was he wasn't burdened by family responsibilities or anything else like blood of the loved 100 we're very close in age. Like I'm delighted that
he was able to spend time with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam as a young teenager
He learned he learned and that's why he is one of the most prolific narrators of heavy
jabiru the level the lover and narrates approximately 15 140 15 140
what are some of the whys of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam labor of love and has shown in the rates for
so Jabba the level the line despite being a prolific narrator, believe when the rates of 15 140 howdy and after the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he he was in Medina, do you know even despite the presence of much older so how about all the love Harlem he was actually the Mufti of Medina, childhood Mandela,
despite his position
to la de la and others all relate that job it is not the love of the law, although that also relates to
jabiru Abdullah the law.
He says that I
heard about a companion
in China, in Damascus, who was relating a heavy from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, which I did not know which I had not heard. So this Mufti of Medina, this companion, this young scholar of the companions, and this prolific narrator of Hades Javelin Abdullah of the alarm, he traveled all the way from Medina to Damascus.
And when he arrived, he he made inquiries there, and he found out that the pert the companion in question was Abdullah on instead of the alarm.
So he went to his house
and he said to the doorman that tell I'm delighted no names that job has come to see.
So the man went in, said,
job with job
and he must have said something else together. So he asked jabiru Mantilla
so the doorman came out and he said to jab at him, Abdullah Abdullah and he said yes, man went to money informed and see them Abdullah on a sort of the alarm came running out. And they both hoped and met max in the hood. And then he said to him, I've come to come to you all the way from Medina to Damascus, merely to listen to one heavy which you relate from Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, which I have not had
to lie on a slide the alarm can relate to that.
We began with the data the law in which a man adapted he came from Medina to Damascus listen to one of the things from him. And when the Dalai Lama said, Whoever treads along the path, he relates to the idea that whoever treads along the path of knowledge.
A lot carries him along the path to gender. This is what he meant.
These are the examples amongst us habit of the alarm. There are many examples of what you do when the alarm is very beautiful, heavy.
to learn it relates to the thing as Muslim, that what are you but I'm sorry, it'll be a lot and he was the first host of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Medina, when he first arrived, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stayed with what are you will inciting of the alarm for a few for a short while for a number of days. He was very close to the sort of law. So the law it was
after the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he,
that there is one study,
which I have heard
from the messenger sallallahu wasallam. So he knew that.
But apart from me, there is no other companion alive who actually heard that heavy except for rock bottom.
So he knew that he said, that is one of the things which I have heard from the messengers of Allah Marlene was one of them. But besides me, there is no other companion alive who has heard the same studies with the exception of optimara.
And he was all the way in each.
So will you will I'm sorry, it'll be a lot harder to travel by Campbell, all the way from Medina, across the Arabian Peninsula through the same African insula and into Egypt.
So long story that he eventually went, he was shown the house, he went to a Muslim in the Muslim society who was the governor of the region. And he told him why he, when he came, he saw him. He came out, he ran it when he arrived at the house of the governor of Egypt

Now, there are many of the examples I won't go into any more details or provide you with any more stories, but here we have Jabir ibn Abdullah, about you will, I'm sorry, who actually undertook this these journeys, we have the willingness of the light in the midst of the alarm to travel in order to learn one single idea or anything of the holy court are many examples.

The whole collection in the entire book is about all of those people who traveled not to search for hobbies in general, but only traveled who traveled only for the sake of a single ID.

football Yep, the
Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, there is no envy except in two things, a man who Allah has given wealth, and then he has enabled him and empowered him to spend that wealth in the truth.
And the second thing, so the first thing that we should never envy wealth, we should never envied people of wealth.
And if we are ever to envy someone their wealth, then only if Allah has blessed them with wealth and wisdom, and therefore they spend that wealth in good.
Then we would envy them not for the wealth, but for the virtue of the reward of charity.
And the second thing, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, there should be no envy except in these two things. And the second thing is a man who Allah has given hikma, who has,
for who? The hell, we are Mohan, and therefore the man, he judges by this wisdom, and he teaches this list of knowledge.
That's the only thing we should have envy. And I would rather have your love on the same companion, who is an array of this beautiful, heavy, he says himself and reflect on his words. He said, he says, Remember, he said,
I used to trade. So I tried to combine trading and worship, the Jara andreeva. But I realized that I could not combine a barter trade and worship. So I abandoned the Java and devoted myself to it.
He says, very beautifully, he says, The people of wealth eat, and we,

And we look at
but the accountability of that excess wealth is on their shoulders, and we are free from it.
See, the rich and the poor. There's only so much a person can eat, drink, you can only clothe yourself with one suit of clothes.
And you can ride people can travel from one place to another. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam passed away. You can travel from one place to another on any means of transport, when a sort of lots of the lighting was ill and passed away, Mr. McCarty to learn
from admirably how to throw the alarm. He says when the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away. He did not leave behind a single dyrham or a single dinner, or a single slave or a single made
pasta La Silla, it was only left behind his white new
his weapons, and a piece of land which he himself had given in charity to the traveller.
This was the
state of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he left this world
and by that time, he had conquered Makkah Medina and the whole of the Arabian Peninsula.
In Chateau de la
Last season Have you played by McQuarrie in is that when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, his armor wasn't in his possession, because it had been deposited as a mortgage and a security for a loan of 30 sir, which is about 100 kilos
of barley, which he had purchased for his wives from a Jew who lived in Medina.
That was the estate of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So that'll be a loved one who is saying that the rich eat wheat he was saying about himself. He was poor. He said, The rich eats weed, the rich drink, we drink, the rich dress, we dress the rich or ride we ride.
No matter how great and grand your mode of transport, you can still only sit in one place.
whether you're riding a very expensive car, or a very cheap car, you're still occupying the same amount of space with that same body.
It's a matter of perception.
At any one time, you can only ride one mode of transport, you can only wear one suit of clothes, you can only eat so much you can only drink so much.
And then beyond all of that everything is excess. The most you can do is look at it and Marvel she can only feed yourself so much. And then the rest you just look at
you can only sleep in one bed. And the rest of the all you have to do is just look at the marvel at but you finished your eyes with your wealth. And others also feast their eyes with the with their with your wealth. So if you've got a good car, you're sitting in the inside everyone else is getting a good view of the outside. But as of the alarm sayings, they eat sweet they drink we drink, late dress, we dress, they ride we draw, we ride and they access well. They look they're accessible and we look at it too, but we won't be questioned about it by Allah they will be
there should be no envy. If there is any envy it should be in knowledge. It should be in the Koran it should be in in it should be in Hickman wisdom as the prophets of Allah says
he can He grants wisdom to whomever he wishes, and whoever has been given wisdom has been given great good and in these leads by Manhattan among Muslim from sea that allow you to make use of your lover your loved one Homer, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
man you're the law we'll be hearing you for Dean. We're in America passing the law you're the history says whomever Allah wishes to bless with good on Allah wishes to grant good What does he give them to give him wealth? What sort of laughs and the lighting of Salaam says me unity love over here failla ever love wishes to give them ever love wishes good for you think of a dean of law grants him the understanding in religion
and then he says what in the mountain are passing? I'm but a distributor will laugh at Allah is the one who gifts and so long daddy. So with this is the virtue of knowledge.
And a lot more data speaks of knowledge and the people of knowledge.
And as Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever treads along the path of knowledge or law will carry them along the pasture.
And then the next part of
what you know malartic at the local level actually had to have a ribbon Nepal.
But the angels they are so pleased
with the proceeds of a seeker of knowledge, we are so pleased with the efforts of a student of knowledge that they actually spread their wings enjoy.
And they place their wings and joy
in humility, so the angels place their wings and spread them in humility, out of joy,
and expressing pleasure
and happiness at the proceeds and the efforts of a seeker of knowledge.
That's a student of knowledge for Bollywood.
But what what of the people of knowledge and the scholars?
Prophet salaallah alayhi wa sallam seems what in the Himalayas
We're in the Himalayas the Aladdin manifesto about one out of a man that verily all who are in the heavens and the earth even the fish in the sea they seek forgiveness on behalf of the alum and scholar
he even the fish as a law settings
several one woman fee him what admin Shane, Eliza, what are a lot of
a lot of things
the heavens and the earth and all who are there in their him his prey
and they glorify
what in men cheat and lie.
And there is nothing, save that it's hymns of praise of Allah.
Without a lot of the Hornets we haven't for you to not understand that.
So even the fish in the sea, they pray as a love along with their praise and that the speed and their glorification of Allah azza wa jal, they actually can you imagine the fish do is define
on behalf of an ad, someone other
than the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, we'll follow the rule and in Allah ibid
of the revised in the new common little battery,
and the virtue and the superiority of an add in over an hour bid a person of knowledge over a worshiper, just the person a very bad is like the superiority of the of the moon, and in moderation later the weather on on the 14th night over the rest of the planetary bodies and stars.
That is the difference between
less than one say that, oh, we're just praising Allah. I did say at the very beginning, that the heavy speaks of the virtue of that will allow but he also speaks about their response.
And I mentioned that in a moment. So far we've learned
the virtue of Islam and the people of Iran and even the Quran is replete with verses about the virtues of the people of Allah says, Allah who yesterday Ludhiana mana will live in LA.
in the minds of the Quran, Allah say,
are those who possess knowledge equal to those who do not possess knowledge?
Can they be equal? Are they equal? Only those who possess intelligence Take heed.
In another verse in the martial law, I mean,
only those of a law servants, other law servants only that really, truly feel
law has told us how about all the law.
That when you are in the gathering with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there they were gatherings of knowledge? Yeah, you're living in an either
in majelis if you're lucky welcome. all believers, when you are told to create space, in the gatherings, then create space, Allah will create an expense for you.
Without even Xu Zhu Fung Shui. And when you are told, Arise, rise, what was this background? This How about all the alarm, I mean, their eagerness to keep the company of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in their eagerness to learn from him, they would always remain with him. And sometimes the consideration for his personal needs and his privacy, escape. So he in his bashfulness, in humility, he would remain seated there. He wanted to go he needed to go, but in his bachelor's, he would remain seated, and this habit of your lover and who would remain seated with him. So Allah xojo Allah would always take care of his visa law. It was one of them. He wouldn't
have to say anything. He in his modesty and bashfulness didn't say anything. So Allah revealed
that when you are told he would say to them once, okay, leave, only to go but they remain seated. So Allah says, We're either feeling shoes when you are told and it's a said, rise from shuso rise and despairs. But law said it so beautifully, that a lot understands your desire for knowledge, but if you follow this command,
If you observe the etiquettes of the gathering of knowledge, and if you observe the etiquette towards us all Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you learn more by going away than actually staying. Why? Allah says what and when said rise from shizen rise, you're afraid to learn levina armano min kumala Dino Raja, Allah will raise those amongst you will have believed. And those of you who have been given knowledge by many ranks and grades, and is replete with verses about the virtues of knowledge and the people of knowledge,
sharing the love and the hula
Allah wants to testify that there is no god except Allah. And he says that that testimony is given by whom Allah says Shay, the law of law testifies that there is no god except he and the angels testify.
The people of the heavens, and who are the people of the earth testify, what will end and the people of knowledge.
There are many of the verses We don't have much time so I'll suffice with this. But these are the virtues of the people in so great, it's our real treasure.
It's our real treasure.
That's a real blessing.
As the Koran says, These days, whomever Allah wishes to bless law gives them fit of religion understanding of religion hikma wisdom and the aim of large religion, the lungs are a source of the law.
And then Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said towards the end in the lower Lama and one of
the that the ruler man are the
successors they are the inheritors. They are the heirs of the prophets and he must
be following their footsteps.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam continues
lumbini through the naramata Drama, they did not inherit the naran there.
And then this is an original academic ramblings Muslim, and in the narration of Imam Buddha Odin, and the others, the words are them you were in Namibia, Adam, your ritual Dena, Rama, Rama and the prophets they did not leave behind they did not bequeath the Nara
and indeed, both meanings are correct. The Prophet alayhi wa salam, when they left this world, they did not leave behind treasures and wealth, the now Are there
any gold sovereign coins or any silver suffering coins, they did not leave behind such worldly treasures. They only bequeath and left behind knowledge
and the true ruler man who are the heirs of the messengers, and even more so than they have also inherited.
Not well, not the Nylander not treasure, but they've inherited the end
of the NBA games.
That's why he says, do not know what I did. They did not inherit the novel that we're in no matter what it's in, rather than inherited in knowledge from an upper level. So whoever sees this, or sees this, I acknowledge that we have the worker, and he has seized a great share.
This is the real treasure.
And indeed, as I've said earlier, have you ever heard the alarm and
the alarm of Buhari when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam departed from this world? What did he leave behind? He had the treasures of the whole of Arabia at his disposal. bhyve had surrendered to Him Mugu had surrendered to Him. And these were two great cities which are mentioned in the Quran. Allah Raja mineral Cortina alene that was in the Quran revealed to a great man of the two cities and who attain that they were speaking of the Quran. They said that if Allah wanted to reveal the Quran to someone must an angel but a human being he could have revealed it to a great, prestigious powerful person from either the city of Macau her wife.
So these were two great cities in that region. maka wife they had submitted the operation submitted
all the surrounding tribes and Medina has submitted tribes as far moth as the hook
and as acaba had surrounded
the whole of the array
peninsula was at the feet of a sort of law. Some of the law it was.
People were paying homage and wealth was flowing into the coffers of Medina.
And yet, I still love some of the love it or some of them for hula, so how about the law I'm willing to sacrifice.
His position was such that when he left this world, and would have been harder for the alarm received by Allah, he did not leave behind a single beaner or single, nor a slave nor a maid. He only left behind his wife's new which he would ride on a moon
and his weapons
and the piece of land which he himself had devoted and given in charity to the traveler,
and even his weapons, and when what when in a shuttle the love on her says parts of that the armor wasn't even in his possession. It was mortgaged as a security by a Jew of Medina, from whom the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam bought 30 sar of barley, which is about three and a half kilos, about 100 kilos of barley. He bought 100 kilos of barley for his wives and his family for their food in his final in his final year, and he never had the money to pay this Jewish trader in Medina. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam deposited his armor, a security and mortgage by him, and in that state, law and in his salon or salon left this move.
So the other man, they are as of the messengers and even was said that they that messengers did not bequeath the narrow there.
And the other man have not inherited the nylon that hung from them.
They've inherited it.
Now speaking earlier about the responsibility of the orlimar. It's not just knowledge. Knowledge is not a currency knowledge is not a means of power and influence. Knowledge is not something to be abused, knowledge must be gained in sincerity you must be taught in sincerity.
And a scholar needs to be
even more sincere than the students and seek far more sincere and the scholar is in greater danger than him is in greater danger
And he is more on the edge. And he's in a more precarious position than others, because of this immense burden that he carries with him because it
can be a boon and a blessing. Or it can be a burden and a curse.
Those who don't possess knowledge.
They won't even be guilty of some of the things that that Roland Martin be guilty of, like the concealment of knowledge,
like failure to proclaim the truth.
There are certain sins, which are
of a greater burden on the greater responsibility than others.
So knowledge is a virtue, it's a blessing, it's a boon, they can be a burden and a curse. There are many responsibilities that go with the knowledge
and along with the position and the virtue of knowledge and the people of knowledge, that is also a commensurate responsibility.
And that respond, and this is why the true orlimar are those who inherit not just the interval, sutala Salalah, Heidi, or some of them, and they're in the NBA he was around, but they also inherit and adopt their son.
they inherit and adopt their character. they inherit and adopt their whole spirits of knowledge and living.
And they follow truly follow in their footsteps. And have such people have
not anybody who just has a title of IBM has all these virtues. No, we're talking about those who Allah refers to in the poor and the people for whom the sort of loss of the law it was seldom said the fish in the sea.
And their superiority over that worshiper is that of the full moon the 14th night over the rest of the stars in the sky, such and such people are those of him.
Last ages in them, I shall lock them in a bar.
It says only the only amount of law servants are truly feel.
This is another topic in itself but I wanted to mention this less any one of us may misunderstand that this is simply a blanket
pain painting of great virtue of the orlimar now
in fact in the holy book on the last panel with Allah says,
What rallied in the Battle of the Athena who is you know, from silica minha Baron shavon Africana minimal horween what oh * now a lot of foreigner who been working
with the borrower from a federal who can come in here has
a lot of sage recite to them, the story of that one, when we had given our signs. This was one of the real amount of the people of the past one a great scholar,
a man of great knowledge and signs, a lot bestowed great illman
but you failed in this Jeet
Short Allah describes me in the following terms relate to them the story of that one who we had given our signs
from Silla Caminha, but he slipped out of those signs, he extracted himself from that knowledge.
So Shea balm made him follow him.
And he became of the wayward and if we wish,
we could have raised him and elevated his position through these signs and through this knowledge that we had given him
but when our Kindle
but rather he clung to the earth to the dunya.
And he followed his soul and his desire his knifes, so what became of him, Allah sees his example from a fellow who committed his likeness is the likeness of a dog in Tamil Allah here.
If you attack it is still lols that its tongue and pants, and even if you leave it alone, it still loads out its tongue, and pants.
So, a law compares a man of great knowledge. A lot describes him in these words, because he along with the privilege of knowledge, that is a convention which responsibility.
And in another verse of the Quran, Allah describes another group of people who are given knowledge.
But they did not carry the responsibility in the burden of that knowledge. So a lot of things.
What is their example gumma hemmati.
Like, their likeness is the likeness of a donkey, with tons and volumes of books on its back.
To animals alive describes people of knowledge. So in the Holy Quran, you find descriptions of the people of knowledge, either being those who Allah includes as those who testify along with the angels and Allah, to the oneness of Allah. Allah speaks of the people of knowledge as those who Allah elevates in ranks and grades of law speaks of the people of knowledge as those who are the only ones who truly fear Allah. Allah speaks for the people have knowledge in those terms, what are all sorts of things so that people have knowledge in terms of them being like animals.
So both, yes, those who fulfill the responsibility and the duty
of their knowledge, they are the ones that Allah praises Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praises, and they are the ones who are being referred to in the snowball.
And the ones who have failed in their duty. They are the ones who Allah describes as people who have been given knowledge, but who failed in their duty of that knowledge and a lot describes them in them in such derogatory terms. And they are not included in the virtues of this.
I'll end with this. Let me relate the hogrefe again, so you're gonna amount to learning they're relating because Muslim. That theme of my base says I was seated with the data on the line in the masjid of Damascus, when a man came to him from Medina and said to him all the data that I have come to you from the city of
La sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So I will double down on the alarm. I said to him, what brings you here, he said, I have heard that you relate to these from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam, some of that out of the same Have you come for any
trade, the Jara who said no, he said have you come for any?
Any of the need? He said no, he said has anything else brought you here from Medina to Damascus is that now?
So some very simple sort of life so love it or send me a call. I have heard a large messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say,
when silica thorium, it's no more fear ilma silica la elegent. Whoever treads a path, seek knowledge there and
Allah carries them on the path
what no matter if it's a little harder than the polygon in verily the angels spread their wings out of pleasure
or in pleasure for the students and the seeker of knowledge.
When the whole array of stuff
out there will
return a filmer. And indeed, those who are in the heavens and the earth, even deficiency, they seek forgiveness on behalf of the scholar of land,
will probably land in Maryland, a bit before the live comedy on our side.
And the virtue of the superiority of the arlynn over the worship of the scholar over the worshiper is the superiority of the full moon
over the rest of the stars, of all the stars
in the world, and
indeed the world.
They are the heirs of the prophets Lemuria through the novel, what are they they have not inherited DNR or they were in the mo what is learning rather than have only inherited l knowledge from an EPA. So whoever sees as it were the tapes that have been warfare he has taken he has seized a great share a full share. I pray aka Mr. Carter, some of them love it. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah enables us to understand the law makers amongst those who embark on this journey and voyage of knowledge in sincerity. We are law makers amongst the students of knowledge and the keepers and the carriers of knowledge. May ally include as amongst the automa, that Allah has messengers from the law it was
praised May Allah blesses
our donors with Allah blesses with the income of the lungs are a source of the law
and the donors with them and of that was the law.
