phenomenal, somebody who was suddenly able to sleep

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

a lot

00:01:03--> 00:01:04

later on Ebrahim

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

that you've

00:01:07--> 00:01:17

achieved Allahumma barik cada Coumadin early, Mohammed klawock, Donna Ibrahim, Ali Ibrahim in the candidate mentioned,

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

respects listeners,

00:01:24--> 00:01:35

as has been announced, the title of today's talk is the sacrifice of the scholars for knowledge.

00:01:37--> 00:01:40

alarms, messengers of Allah Almighty He was

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

of both praised knowledge

00:01:46--> 00:01:50

and the people of knowledge in the Koran and in the heading.

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

And only recently,

00:01:55--> 00:01:57

I gave a speech about

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

the famous Hadeeth robber out of the alarm.

00:02:06--> 00:02:08

As a commentary, I explained

00:02:09--> 00:02:15

the virtues of knowledge and the people of knowledge based on that Hadith, it's very famous for the

00:02:18--> 00:02:23

and the one thing that that had these weak spots at the very beginning, is

00:02:26--> 00:02:30

going out in search of knowledge traveling in search for knowledge.

00:02:33--> 00:02:44

And the person to whom your loved one relates to this idea of himself have traveled all the way from Medina, to the marsh, from Medina to Damascus,

00:02:45--> 00:02:54

for only one purpose, to hear a heavy thought of a soldier law, some of the law, or some of them from the Companion of the law,

00:02:55--> 00:03:02

who then went on to give him the glad tidings that he had heard plus all the law. Some people love it, some of them say

00:03:07--> 00:03:08

that 100 Have you thought of it.

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

So that whoever embarks

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

on a path of seeking knowledge

00:03:22--> 00:03:27

when Silicon Valley open your throat Wolfie here in the lobby Italia

00:03:28--> 00:03:34

COVID embarks and treads a path in search of knowledge allow will

00:03:35--> 00:03:40

lead him along a path all the way to gender, and you've heard the rest of it.

00:03:42--> 00:03:47

So Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam both praise, knowledge and the people of knowledge in the poor.

00:03:50--> 00:03:51

However,

00:03:52--> 00:03:54

and knowledge has always fascinated Muslims.

00:03:58--> 00:04:12

The eagerness and zeal to learn about the words of Allah and the words of his Noble Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the zeal and this passion has always touched Muslims.

00:04:15--> 00:04:16

However,

00:04:17--> 00:04:23

Allah has ways and methods in his creation. Allah has laws and patterns.

00:04:25--> 00:04:51

And one of his laws. One of his patterns in his creation, is that the knowledge of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam can only truly be gained in a beneficial manner, if it's done with sacrifice, and with the great efforts that has been the consistent pattern with in orlimar with knowledge and the people of knowledge and scholars throughout history.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

In fact, we learn about this all the way from the time of the Prophet Adam or the hustler

00:05:02--> 00:05:06

in a heartbeat related by memoir de la Muslim and others as part of a longer these

00:05:08--> 00:05:13

prophets of Allah Allahu wa sallam relates that when Allah created the prophets or the malleus

00:05:14--> 00:05:17

Allah told him go to the angels

00:05:19--> 00:05:22

and say Salaam to them salaam aleikum

00:05:24--> 00:05:33

and whatever they greet you with in return that will be your greeting and the greeting of your progeny inshallah.

00:05:35--> 00:05:42

So, the prophets Adam alayhis, salaam went to the angels and said of Salaam Alaikum. And they replied by saying y equals Salaam.

00:05:45--> 00:06:03

So the essence of the story is that even to learn Salaam, which Allah could have taught the prophets, Adam alayhis salaam, directly, a lot told him, No, even in order to learn, while equals Salam Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh, go to the angels.

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

He went, and he learned from the angels.

00:06:15--> 00:06:18

And this was the case with all of the MBA alums.

00:06:20--> 00:06:28

And there is no better example than the story of the Prophet Musa alayhis. Salaam.

00:06:31--> 00:06:39

Today is Friday, as part of the prescribed acts of virtue on jemar.

00:06:41--> 00:06:43

Many of us will have read sort of Luca,

00:06:46--> 00:06:49

and one of the longest

00:06:50--> 00:07:00

and most prominent sort of stories of sort of GAVI contains a number of stories. One of the most prominent and longest stories of sort of

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

is that of the Prophet Musa alayhis salaam, and his young companion

00:07:09--> 00:07:15

and how they traveled on your on a very strange journey, witnessing

00:07:16--> 00:07:20

miracles and experiencing some very strange things.

00:07:22--> 00:07:28

And the basis of that story is that the Prophet Musa alayhis, Salam

00:07:29--> 00:07:32

was asked that is there anyone more knowledgeable than you?

00:07:34--> 00:07:54

And he replied in the negative and from his perspective, it was correct to do so for he was the prophets of Allah. And the Messenger of Allah amongst his people is always the most knowledgeable. And in one generation, he was asked Who is the most knowledgeable and he replied I,

00:07:55--> 00:07:59

but Allah subhanho wa Taala wish to show him

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

since what he said wasn't incorrect. But as a messenger of Allah, who was a prophet of Allah, it behoves him more. It benefited him more to ascribe knowledge not to himself but to Allah his origin.

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

So last panel, hora Donna revealed to me that no OSA, that is someone even more knowledgeable than you, that someone who has knowledge that we have not given you.

00:08:29--> 00:08:36

The Prophet Musa alayhis, salaam immediately asked a law or law is there a path to this purse?

00:08:38--> 00:08:52

So Allah has told him, yes, you can meet him, but you will be done in this manner. So the Prophet Musa alayhis salaam embarked on that journey, which is related in sort of Gulf. It was a very strange journey with many strange occurrences.

00:08:54--> 00:09:04

But the point of reference for us in the story in the context of today's talk is simply that the Prophet Musa alayhis salam wanted to learn from him.

00:09:06--> 00:09:12

Despite his own knowledge and his position, he wanted to learn from this servant of Allah, who was Heather Allah

00:09:17--> 00:09:46

and he embarked on this long journey strange things happened. They carried on missed the point of meeting, retrace their steps went back, and there they found for the rally this alarm leaning against a boulder, he said to him as salaam aleikum, his reply was one of the cars salon one now that they've got salon. Where is their piece in your land is a piece beyond you? his reply was way is there peace in your land. And then

00:09:47--> 00:09:53

a very strange conversation took place. Strange because this was the Prophet Musa alayhis salaam.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

And this was someone who was totally unknown to them. He had

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

I asked him very humbly May I follow

00:10:05--> 00:10:09

aluminum and metal into Russia. May I follow

00:10:11--> 00:10:17

on the understanding that you will teach me of that guidance which you have been given

00:10:18--> 00:10:22

by the in nickel into study it is okay for Spiro Anna man and

00:10:25--> 00:10:34

his reply was that you will never be able to remain patience with me. And how can you remain patient over something which you can not understand?

00:10:39--> 00:10:41

So, musala Hassan said to him,

00:10:42--> 00:10:46

call us at the jejuni in Sha la sabita. When you look at

00:10:47--> 00:11:01

that insha Allah you will find me patient, and I will not disobeyed any command of you by the American. He then said, Well, if you do follow me for that the only answer sheet in the Philippines

00:11:02--> 00:11:48

then do not ask me about anything until the ICT avec first. He agreed, they traveled, something happened. The problem was Sally who Salaam spoke up, he was warned, something else happened. A problem was that Islam spoke up again. He was warned for the second and last time and told that if you do speak up again, if you do ask anything again, that will be a part of our ways. Third time who sadly his son couldn't contain himself, he spoke again. And then he was declared by further Elise, that now we must part, even the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in academia, related by most authors, that how we wish that musala his salon would have remained a bit more patient, we

00:11:48--> 00:11:53

would have learnt, he would have been able to reveal to us much more of the affair of

00:11:55--> 00:12:13

now, that's just a summary of the story. The interesting thing is that if you try to understand the character of the Prophet Musa alayhis, salaam, he was a chosen servant, messenger of someone who was very outspoken, he would speak to a lot directly, he would

00:12:14--> 00:12:28

speak to the other nvra he was Salam in a very forthright manner, even to the Prophet Salaam, it was even to Allah has the virtual, or in the unbreakable law, show me yourself, I wish to see you.

00:12:29--> 00:12:31

He made that request on.

00:12:32--> 00:12:38

Prophet Musa alayhis salam when you met Adam alayhis salaam, he said you You are the one who drove us from gender.

00:12:42--> 00:12:48

And then, even with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in meraj. He told him, what has

00:12:49--> 00:12:50

Allah given you,

00:12:51--> 00:13:41

Salah how many times 50 we all know the stories of go back. I have tested my people, your mama will not be able to fulfill the duty of 50 salomaa a day. Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam men back had it reduced to 45 came back. He asked him again he said go back 4540 3530 and so on, all the way to the five salawa see that he has Salaam kept on stopping the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and sending him back. And even after five he said that this is too much. The The point is he was very forthright, very outspoken, and his character and temperament are such. In fact, when he returned from the mountain, and saw that his people had deviated he grabbed his own brother,

00:13:41--> 00:13:55

physically. And it's mentioned in the Koran that that was built up, see that Oh, my brother in law who believe in a deity, what others see, oh, son of my mother, do not grab me by my beard and bow my head.

00:13:56--> 00:13:58

His anger was such he was

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

he took the

00:14:04--> 00:14:16

season I must say alayhis salaam, his temperament was such that he was very outspoken, forthright, and he would get angry and he will let his displeasure be known. And yet

00:14:17--> 00:14:29

despite being of that temperament, He humbled Himself and He silenced himself. And he changed his whole approach in order to learn from it.

00:14:30--> 00:14:31

And he traveled.

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

He accepted all the conditions and these were stringent conditions. No, you can't come with me. No, you can't learn from me. A Salaam Alaikum Salaam ways there Salaam and peace in your land. You can't travel with me. You can't learn from me. You can not be patient. He made promise after promise to him. Fine. If you follow me, you cannot ask me anything. And he didn't say I wish to accompany you.

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

He said I wish to follow. And it means that further alayhis salam became the leader and Musashi than a Moosa alayhis salaam became a follower.

00:15:12--> 00:15:30

Even the Messenger of Allah, the Prophet Musa alayhis salam, a person of that caliber, who communicated directly with Allah azzawajal he humbled himself, and he embarks on a long arduous trying journey in order to learn in order to gain.

00:15:31--> 00:15:39

And so all the way till the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and even the noble Sahaba of the law.

00:15:42--> 00:15:45

We all wish to gain knowledge.

00:15:46--> 00:15:52

And, in fact, we must inherit these properties from the law equals and themselves.

00:15:55--> 00:15:59

Search for knowledge is an obligation upon evidence.

00:16:02--> 00:16:09

So, it's an obligation, we must know about our religion, and not just the basics.

00:16:11--> 00:16:29

We all have a duty to learn. In fact, anyone who has a love of Allah and the love of his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in their heart will be driven to search for knowledge. For this as part of that love. someone loves Allah. He loves Allah speech, he loves Alas, Golan, Allah as

00:16:30--> 00:17:22

a person who loves the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will love his words, his Sunnah his, his teachers his practice, and they will go out and they will go to great lengths to gain this knowledge. So seeking knowledge should be the desire of every Muslim. In fact, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, it's some obligation. However, there are etiquettes, there are rules, there are conditions and prerequisites for gaining true beneficial knowledge. And one of those conditions, one of those prerequisites is that we must make sacrifices, this whole beam is established on sacrifice, knowledge is established on sacrifice. We would not be seated here today, sharing the

00:17:22--> 00:17:30

words of Allah, and the words of his Noble Messenger, some of the law and even some of them without the sacrifice of

00:17:33--> 00:17:34

the scholars,

00:17:36--> 00:17:47

our teachers, our elders, they would have never learned without the sacrifice of this elders, their teachers, and so on consecutively,

00:17:48--> 00:17:51

all the way to the till the time of this habit of the alarm.

00:17:53--> 00:17:59

And even this habit of the alarm, they didn't just gain knowledge overnight.

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

They worked hard, they starved for the sake of knowledge.

00:18:08--> 00:18:10

So you then have a hora de la and

00:18:12--> 00:18:14

the most prolific narrator of

00:18:18--> 00:18:20

he he narrates,

00:18:22--> 00:18:28

in Arusha, he'll be a lot more on how the wife of the Prophet some of the La Liga was that she was his noble wife,

00:18:29--> 00:18:30

his youngest wife,

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

and

00:18:34--> 00:18:43

over the many years, she stayed with him, she learns, heard observed, witnessed so much. And she conveyed so much

00:18:45--> 00:18:56

her in total, despite being a family member, a wife, in total, she relates just over 2007 separately.

00:18:58--> 00:19:04

Whereas rhodiola one, he did not embrace Islam till the seventh year of hedging.

00:19:06--> 00:19:25

And the total amount of time that he was actually a Muslim, during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was just under four years. And yes, in under four years, he had collected, memorized and then later managed to convey approximately 5300

00:19:30--> 00:19:35

twice as much as money in shuttle the alarm over twice as much on the heart.

00:19:39--> 00:19:49

And just as people may express surprise, now people express surprise them. Not the Sahaba heard the alarm billows who came after the Sahaba

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

and mumble hard to learn here they relate this heavy and so to others. I say that I will. hora hora de la horn himself said that people's

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

They

00:20:02--> 00:20:10

look at the Aqsa Abu hurayrah, the Abu hurayrah has gone to the extreme I in relating Howdy.

00:20:13--> 00:20:33

And what he was trying to say. And the accusation was that why is it that some of the other companions, who are older, more senior in possession and who spent who are older even in religion, so they had become Muslim much earlier? Why is it that they relate such few Hadees and yet

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

are the last one, he relates so many how the thief

00:20:39--> 00:20:46

see the novel creator how the alarm explains, he says, speaking of himself

00:20:47--> 00:21:18

that once he says, our brothers from the maharjan room, they were traders, so they will be in the marketplace, and our brothers from amongst the inside or the indigenous Muslims of Medina, they will farmers, and people are fields until so they will be attending to their crops and their feelings. Well, I Abu hurayrah would cling on sort of sorta laughs in the love it was despite the hunger of his stomach.

00:21:22--> 00:21:40

And he would remain hungry, he wouldn't work. He would cling on to the sort of lump sum the lump sum them hovering around the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam remaining outside his home in the hope of learning from him. And he would remain hungry, he would start

00:21:41--> 00:21:55

on his essays on some occasions, he would fall down in between the member of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the home of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:21:57--> 00:22:00

And some people believed on in those days that

00:22:03--> 00:22:26

someone who fell down suddenly in who was suffering from a certain illness, that illness could their condition could be helped by placing their foot on the neck of the individual possibly to calm them down. So people would place their feet on his neck. And he says, By Allah, I suffer from low illness. All it was was hunting.

00:22:28--> 00:22:42

So rhodiola says that whilst my brothers from walks, Mahajan works in the marketplace, and the my brother's friend wants the answer. They were busy in in their fields, I clung on to the messenger so long.

00:22:43--> 00:22:49

As a result, I was present when they were absent. And I heard when they could not hear.

00:22:50--> 00:22:52

This is why he learned so many.

00:22:53--> 00:23:26

This is why he gained so much knowledge. It was through sacrifice, even if it meant hunger. And it wasn't just a walk right out of the alarm barn, there was a group of hundreds of companions of the alarm, who would devote themselves to learning and spending time with the prophets of Allah and Eagle sent them away from their families away from their other needs. And they would remain in and around the machine all the time. Some of them will called us hardware software, the met the companions of the veranda,

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

they were so devoted

00:23:32--> 00:23:33

to learning

00:23:35--> 00:23:52

that this meant taking time away from their families, from their workplace, from their work from their livelihood, and spending as much time with the profit some of the law legal some of them as possible. In fact, even if you imagine the

00:23:55--> 00:24:08

scene in the mystery, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not hold formal classes, as we would understand where he would lecture and speak. And this habit of the alarm icon would be gathered

00:24:09--> 00:24:40

around him, always as formal students. Now, if you look at the collection of heavy what the entire collection of heavies shows, is that the companions kept the company of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at all times. on all occasions. They tried to spend as much time with him as possible, even if it meant traveling out of the city. So yes, some of that have if you will find that he said this on the moon, but he said this in a gathering.

00:24:41--> 00:24:53

On many occasions, you will find that the companions relate. We were in this person's house. We were traveling on a journey. We were making our way to this location.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

We were in this area. Out of Medina. We were in this area out of Medina. So

00:25:00--> 00:25:17

What this collection of headings shows is that the problem with this harbor huddle, the alarm, remained in the company of the messenger, salallahu alayhi wasallam as much as possible. And that's how they learned and delighted my boss for the alarm.

00:25:19--> 00:25:21

He wants to learn, he was very young.

00:25:22--> 00:25:33

So he would since his arms, he was the wife move his arms, he removed the alarm and he was the wife of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would even seek permission to spend the night there.

00:25:34--> 00:26:04

And he would hover in and around the homes of the messengers of the love it was sent them. The same with Abdullah, the Allahu Nkrumah, who was very young, he would try to spend as much time as possible in his sister's home have suffered the alarm. The same with the other Sahaba hold the alarm. One of the most famous companions, and the most learned companions is none other than Abdullah. Darrell de la hora Abdullah, when was the last one, how did he gain such knowledge?

00:26:06--> 00:26:07

Was it just

00:26:09--> 00:26:11

automatically far from

00:26:12--> 00:26:21

he was one of the earliest Muslims to embrace Islam. In fact, in one narration, he says that he was actually the sixth person to embrace Islam.

00:26:23--> 00:26:27

And he would remain with the Prophet some of the love it was sort of as much as possible.

00:26:28--> 00:26:33

Who saw it rather your love essays, that when we came to Medina

00:26:36--> 00:26:41

and we, when we first arrived, and we saw him the law, or the law one,

00:26:43--> 00:26:53

we would see him coming in and out of the house of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So frequently, we actually thought he was a family member.

00:26:55--> 00:27:07

And Abdullah, Allah would carry the miswak of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, his slippers, his sandals, his water for door,

00:27:08--> 00:27:11

they will carry, carry his pillow.

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

He would carry the personal possessions of the soul last and the love it who seldom water for those sandals miswak pillow, or in his service of the messenger, some of the law. In fact, he had special permission to come in and out of the house of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:27:33--> 00:27:40

This is why when he passed away, of almost threw that on the alarm on another companion, and Abu Musab al de la.

00:27:41--> 00:27:45

They were both conversing. And they said, one of them said to the other,

00:27:46--> 00:27:50

who was rude said to one of them said to the other, have you seen

00:27:52--> 00:28:18

this passed away meaning until lightning was on? Do you see that he has left behind any one of his position of his caliber? And the other said, No, of course, I've always had a [???]load of the a lover who said, No, of course not. And the reason is, because he would be present when we were absent, and he would be granted permission in the whole of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, when we would be prevented from entry.

00:28:22--> 00:29:08

So the companions believed that there was no one more knowledgeable after I'm polite and was rude or the alarm had passed away someone of his caliber, and position. And why, because they said quite clearly, the reason is, he was present when others were absent. And he was allowed in and grant special permission when we were prevented from doing so. What all of this shows is that these companions who sacrifice their time, their leisure, their own pursuits in order to cling on to the company of Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they gain the most, just like another mnemonic under the law and one of the most famous narrators already again, how did you then unsewn an article

00:29:08--> 00:29:10

of the law and have gained so much knowledge?

00:29:12--> 00:29:23

So many? Quite simply, because he says from the time the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam arrived in Medina, I served the Messenger of Allah for 10 whole years.

00:29:26--> 00:29:28

And even those

00:29:29--> 00:29:34

of the caliber of see than I would have looked above or the law, look at what he had to say

00:29:36--> 00:29:40

about Musashi idea of the alarm went to visit see the owner and what

00:29:42--> 00:29:46

he knocked on the door. He heard no reply so he left.

00:29:49--> 00:29:51

See the number of the alarm came out.

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

And all he sent someone when he inquired who was knocking on the door. There was no one there who had been knocking on the door. He was told him

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

Loser. So it's a call in southern him. So he called them so so why did you go back after knocking on the door and not hearing any reply? So he said, we have been commanded IE by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam seek permission thrice. And then if we are declined permission, or if we see if we do not get any permission, then to go away.

00:30:25--> 00:30:27

So, say that I'm going to be a law firm said,

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

Bring me proof

00:30:33--> 00:30:41

that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this. Now, musala surely will be a lot more, he knew he had heard this heading.

00:30:45--> 00:31:25

But that he was fearful, he says or otherwise I will make an example of so he went, he went to a group of companions, receipted, who spoke to them, and he said, Will any one of you attest to this? Will any one of you corroborate this report? So they all knew and they deliberately chose I will say, the hoodie or the alarm for two reasons, one because he was the youngest. And another reason none of them wants to face the alarm. So this center will say evil hoodie, so we'll move on surely the alarm took a booster even though the alarm and went to the house. I'll see you then.

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

And before I continue, I'd just like to say that during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:31:37--> 00:31:49

saved an arm of the law firm he had, he he was, he had been made the brother of an unsightly companion. And with this untidy companion,

00:31:50--> 00:32:38

he had come to an agreement, that one day he would stay with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the whole day. And the unsightly companion would go and attend to his own chores and needs. And then the following day, the roles are reversed. The unsightly companion would spend the day with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and see you then I would have known her Barbara your loved one would go and attend to his own needs. And they would alternate day by day. And each evening, they will come together. And the one who had spent the day with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what he would share, relate and share everything with him. So in this way, they could both attend to

00:32:38--> 00:32:48

their work their chores, and their needs and their own duties, and not really miss out from learning from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:32:50--> 00:33:00

Imagine one day every second day, the whole day would be devoted to learning and spending time in the company of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:33:01--> 00:33:09

So we are actually in the booth at the hood of the alarm and went to see him and the rules are showing you the alarm. And

00:33:11--> 00:33:19

I told him that I will say that a hoodie will corroborate what I relate to from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:33:20--> 00:33:21

So, say that

00:33:23--> 00:33:54

you love her and accepted, and he reassured him that he hadn't doubted him. But he did not want to set a precedent whereby anyone could ascribe anything to the sort of law, some of the law legal system without proof and without corroboration. Then listen to his words, and this will save a barber or your loved one. He said, You have gained knowledge. But I, I remained too preoccupied in my trade and in the dunya and knowledge escaped me.

00:33:56--> 00:33:59

Someone of the caliber of honorable Barbara De La Hoya,

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

who would alternate and spend an entire day in the company of the messenger, some of the love it was learning from him. And then the next day he would gain everything that he had missed from his unsalted companion and brother.

00:34:16--> 00:34:36

Someone of that caliber, he still say, is in great regrets and with remorse, that I was too preoccupied in the world in the dunya. And I was distracted by trade and business and you and knowledge escapes me, whereas you you gain knowledge.

00:34:38--> 00:34:46

How about the law for the sake of knowledge, they went through a lot during the time of the Prophet some of the love it.

00:34:48--> 00:34:49

And even after his time

00:34:50--> 00:34:55

and delight, my boss or the loved one who was very young, extremely

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

was in his early teens when the prophets of the LA Valley Southern path

00:35:01--> 00:35:04

So I'm delighted in our bus of the days

00:35:07--> 00:35:09

when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away,

00:35:10--> 00:35:16

I wished to learn from the Senior Companions.

00:35:19--> 00:35:21

So I would go to their homes.

00:35:23--> 00:35:26

And at times, I would arrive at their house

00:35:27--> 00:35:28

in order to learn from them

00:35:31--> 00:35:34

in the heat of the afternoon,

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

when they would be taking their siesta

00:35:39--> 00:35:41

so I wouldn't disturb them.

00:35:42--> 00:35:43

But I would

00:35:45--> 00:35:49

lie I would, I would lie down on the ground,

00:35:50--> 00:35:53

outside their home, waiting

00:35:54--> 00:36:02

until they would awake. And I could speed once the dust of Medina would be swirling all around.

00:36:04--> 00:36:40

And then he would lie there in that state, until the companions would come out, when they would come out, they would see him and they would rush to him because they respected him for being a family member of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and they would say to him, oh, cousin, brother of the messenger, some of the love it was sent them, you should have notified us, we would have come to you. And he would say, No, I have come to you, to learn Irish to learn from you. And therefore it was my duty to come to you, imagines someone of whom Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:36:42--> 00:37:09

had someone for whom he had prayed. He had places noble hand on his head and pray to Allah loves that we have a lot to teach him the book, The meaning of the book, this is why I am delighted and I burst the alarm and Homer is considered the officer of the Quran, from amongst companions of the ummah. And even that, that was sort of last Friday, who was selling them gave him

00:37:10--> 00:37:13

for increased ill. What was it for?

00:37:14--> 00:37:16

It was

00:37:17--> 00:37:29

because he chose to spend time with him. And when he spent the nights with him, he didn't just spend the night there. He went and prepared water for a sort of law, some of the law he was selected for

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

and for his knees, and he woke up with him at the time.

00:37:35--> 00:37:43

And he served him a single laughs and the love It was an honor that service and repaid that service with a very beautiful.

00:37:45--> 00:38:14

So all of us have heard the alarm, who are regarded as prolific narrators are regarded as extremely knowledgeable. They didn't just gain automatically. It was through great sacrifice. And through a great efforts and endeavor and even traveling, even visiting even by humbling themselves. Every one of us should have a desire to learn. In fact, the desire to learn was present even in the noble messengers of Allah Allah.

00:38:15--> 00:38:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:38:19--> 00:38:20

tells them in the whole record.

00:38:24--> 00:38:39

I've mentioned this many times before that when Jeb rinella his mom would come with the revelation, Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would with great haste. Repeat what you read alayhis salaam was reading after him. So last panel, who was the other

00:38:41--> 00:38:42

one told him

00:38:44--> 00:38:57

that loud Henrik mihaela Sonic military gentlemen, in Mali and Niger Mahabharata that do not move your tongue in order to hasten with the Quran. Do not worry your messenger of Allah on Skype you in Allina Jamal.

00:38:59--> 00:39:06

It is our duty to collect and gather the port on your heart and to recite it to you. And in another verse, what are the animals

00:39:10--> 00:40:00

that do not hasten with the Quran before its revelation is completed to you again? The meaning is that let gibreel alayhis salaam recite the verse completely or the set of verses. Once he has completed his recitation, then you begin your recitation. Otherwise, while he is reciting, do not read after him. But remain silent and listen attentively. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wouldn't read, along with jabril alayhis salam out of impatience? No, it was out of fear that he would miss him. And he was because of his ardent desire to gain the knowledge and gain the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala that's why a lot of xojo honoring his

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

zeal

00:40:02--> 00:40:03

and acknowledging his

00:40:05--> 00:40:37

passion for learning last panel without saying, Do not hasting with the arm before its revelation is completed to you, and will rub the Sydney Enigma and pray and say, oh my lord, increase me in knowledge. And that was a source of love. Some of the love are illegal, some of them he was told, pray to Allah, basically, that oh my lord, increase me in knowledge. So the desire to learn that desire to gain knowledge is a son of the MBR

00:40:39--> 00:40:52

is the son of the noble Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanho wa Taala recognized and acknowledged his passion for knowledge, for gaining knowledge and law told him pray and say, oh my lord, increase me in knowledge.

00:40:55--> 00:41:01

Even after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, the noble companions did not stop.

00:41:02--> 00:41:07

And only when I relate to the heavy throb of the alarm, I shared with you

00:41:09--> 00:41:32

the two stories of what you will and saw, you know, the alarm and jabber of NAB dilla for the alarm, which I won't repeat, but in in the case of jabiru, they love the Allahumma. He found he learned that there was someone one of the companions, who narrated a hadith from Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, in Medina, sorry, in the mosque,

00:41:34--> 00:41:57

which he had not heard directly from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he didn't know who the companion was. But he learns that the companion, this is someone relating this hadith in the mosque in China. So Jabu Abdullah, the Allahumma, a young companion, who was again, one of the most prolific narrators of Headey,

00:41:58--> 00:42:07

he actually bought a camel. He had no reason to travel, he went out, bought a camel and traveled all the way from Medina to the

00:42:08--> 00:42:52

approximately just under a month journey in those days across the desert. And he went to, he made inquiries until eventually he came to the hands of his companion, and he heard from him. I've related this incident before, so I won't go into it in detail. The other story of what you but I'm sorry about the alarm, the first host of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he arrived in Medina, and what you know the alarm, already knew this Hadith, he had already heard this already, directly from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. But he now learns that there was no one else amongst the companions, who had also heard this hadith alongside him. And who could corroborate this

00:42:52--> 00:43:35

hadith from Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi wasallam. For him, with the exception of one companion opposite of lamb, you're not the only one who was in Egypt at the time of war, you will inside Iran, the alarm traveled all the way from Medina, to Egypt, not to learn a new heading, but merely to ratify the hearing of one from another companion, who also had the heavy sort of sort of loss of love. It was a limb, which he knew, which he himself had heard, but he just really wanted to corroborate it when he arrived, and he met up with him and there'll be a loved one. He said to him, that I have learned that there is one of these, which only the two of us now relate directly from

00:43:35--> 00:44:21

the profits and loss of it. So again, I've related that story, but the moral before when commenting on your loved one, please refer to that. So the moral of the story in both on the moral of both of these two accounts is that these learned companions of what you will I'm sorry, it'll be a long one. And jabiru Abdullah the Allahumma, even after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, they traveled and will you will entirely by camel, all the way from Medina to Egypt, for the sake of jabiru Abdullah, the alarm aborts a camel traveled all the way from Medina to the mush for the sake of one. And there were others who have out of the home, who did exactly the same. And this, this

00:44:21--> 00:44:26

tradition continued, today, Allahu Akbar, we have,

00:44:28--> 00:44:33

we have books, we have the knowledge or I should say we have the information.

00:44:36--> 00:44:58

But how did we arrive at all this knowledge? What enables us to sit here today and be able to say our level part of us all, Allah said and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the only thing is the sacrifice of the orlimar of Islam for the sake of this knowledge

00:44:59--> 00:45:00

that also

00:45:00--> 00:45:11

So many stories, so many accounts. When that ruler man had this passion for learning, it drove them, it motivated them.

00:45:12--> 00:45:18

And it's a rule we will never gain anything No pain, no gain. Allah says in the Quran, Lenten

00:45:20--> 00:45:26

matters, you will never attain virtue until you spend that which you love.

00:45:27--> 00:45:29

True charity

00:45:30--> 00:45:32

is when you can feel the pinch.

00:45:35--> 00:45:40

It's when you can sense the loss. You don't regret it, but you can feel the loss.

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

True charity is when you spend that which you love.

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

lentinan

00:45:54--> 00:46:09

it means sacrifice. without knowledge, sorry, one cannot gain knowledge without true sacrifice. And that means sacrificing our time, our wealth, our leisure, our pastimes,

00:46:11--> 00:46:14

our quality time that we want with others,

00:46:17--> 00:46:18

even with family,

00:46:21--> 00:46:23

the things that we love

00:46:24--> 00:46:34

until we do not learn to sacrifice what we love, we can never attain virtue and never attain righteousness.

00:46:35--> 00:46:36

Knowledge isn't easy.

00:46:40--> 00:46:41

People speak about it mumble hard

00:46:43--> 00:46:54

about that with a mouth it's not just a man Buhari. He was a scholar of the third century. Look up the companions of the first century that will a man of the second century have a smile.

00:46:57--> 00:47:08

I can name you scholar after scholar after scholar Imam Shabbir Abdullah heading in Mohammed a shabby. He was a famous Darby who

00:47:10--> 00:47:13

saw approximately 500 Sahaba of the law

00:47:14--> 00:47:19

and many of them he learned from them. He was a famous teacher, Imam or hanifa

00:47:21--> 00:47:25

Imam Bukhari Rahmatullah. hayday relates in his story

00:47:28--> 00:47:39

in which army the shabby relates from the son of a Bousada and even the alarm, who relates from his father will also show you of the alarm

00:47:41--> 00:47:50

after relating the heavy one, just one single heavy and I'm going to share me this great scholar, he said to the student, there

00:47:52--> 00:47:54

are there are plenty NACA herby leadershape

00:47:56--> 00:48:00

we've given it to you there take it, I've given it to you for nothing.

00:48:02--> 00:48:09

Even though for less than this one of these people will travel from mcdata Medina, sorry, people will travel to Medina.

00:48:11--> 00:48:31

This was a reference to the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, where the companions would travel from other regions, all the way to Medina, to listen and to learn from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, sometimes one person would come from a distant area, ask one question and leave just like

00:48:34--> 00:48:58

the Allah and he wanted to know one month he traveled all this was after the conquest of Mecca. He lived in Mecca. He traveled from Mecca to Medina, came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked one question, got the answer and traveled back to Makkah. And this is what amid a shaggy, it'll be to LA he and he was referring to and that that's just the example of one Companion

00:48:59--> 00:49:20

of the alarm. Otherwise, the Hadeeth is replete with stories of the Bedouin and other companions coming toward a sort of loss of livelihood, from around Medina and from even as far as nudged from the eastern region of the Arabian Peninsula, merely to learn merely to ask and to gain and to leave.

00:49:21--> 00:49:34

bounded a shabby he related this one single heavy and he said to those whom you relate to while the one student said that the NACA Harvey leadershape Hey, y'all we have given you these ad for nothing.

00:49:35--> 00:49:42

Even though for less than this one ad, people will travel all the way to Medina during the time of Rasulullah sallallahu.

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

Imam ozeri era to La la, famous scholar who was actually born in Beirut.

00:49:53--> 00:49:54

So he,

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

from one of the earliest scholars, someone accompanied him

00:50:00--> 00:50:04

After they accompanied him. He stayed with him for four days.

00:50:08--> 00:50:11

And in four days he heard only 30 Howdy.

00:50:13--> 00:50:14

So he complained to him.

00:50:16--> 00:50:17

And he said, I've heard

00:50:19--> 00:50:34

only 30 honey from you in four days. He said, You complain about hearing only 34 days of what you will inside of the law having traveled all the way from Medina to Egypt, to merely hear one had even she already knew.

00:50:37--> 00:50:40

And you find 30 too little to feed.

00:50:42--> 00:50:53

If I'm jarhead Mottola, a very famous scholar students of andalite nobis and Abdullah Amaro de Allahumma. He is recognized as a mom of

00:50:54--> 00:51:33

Mr. Mujahid Haley, he wants to travel with Abdullah nombre de la from Medina to Makkah on a pilgrimage and on the way back, so he traveled in the company of Abdullah Romero de la Bangla from Medina, all the way to Makkah, stayed with him in Makkah, returned to Medina. That was a whole journey approximately a month, normally would take eight days from Medina to Makkah, because there were eight stages of traveling. So some time in Makkah, going to MacGuffin Medina and on the return journey approximately a month

00:51:34--> 00:51:38

and in the hole of one month, even though he stayed with Abdullah

00:51:40--> 00:51:44

he only learned and heard one single delight, not

00:51:45--> 00:51:46

one single.

00:51:48--> 00:51:57

But he remained with him clung to him, served him looked after him way to the poem him travel that distance, and this was through the desert.

00:51:59--> 00:52:01

And at the end of it, he only heard one single

00:52:03--> 00:52:04

they would measure

00:52:06--> 00:52:08

verses of the Quran.

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

In gold,

00:52:13--> 00:52:16

a word in gold. That's how much it meant.

00:52:18--> 00:52:20

They cared not for wealth when it came to

00:52:21--> 00:52:25

giving spending one's wealth, harder to learn.

00:52:26--> 00:52:27

He

00:52:28--> 00:52:31

he was a trader, your trading cloth.

00:52:33--> 00:52:36

And yet despite being a businessman, despite being a trader in cloth

00:52:38--> 00:52:42

at times, he spent all his money in the search for it.

00:52:44--> 00:52:46

Traveling here, they're everywhere.

00:52:48--> 00:53:01

Until he himself says that at times, I had no wealth to such an extent that for three days, I would say I would survive by eating dry grass for three days. That was mahadi

00:53:02--> 00:53:04

dry grass for three days.

00:53:07--> 00:53:11

Mm, yep. No marine law here a very famous scholar of it.

00:53:14--> 00:53:14

Yeah, it

00:53:17--> 00:53:22

was a friend and a companion and a colleague of

00:53:27--> 00:53:28

mine.

00:53:31--> 00:53:36

His father was wealthy. When he died he bequeath

00:53:38--> 00:53:42

1,050,000 dirhams over a million dirhams.

00:53:46--> 00:53:46

And

00:53:48--> 00:53:50

now because of the price of silver

00:53:51--> 00:54:09

last time I calculated one bedroom was worth about one pound 90 pounds, so almost two pounds. So in today's currency, this would be approximately 2 million pounds sterling. So he inherited 2 million pounds sterling approximately from his father.

00:54:11--> 00:54:21

In law, he says, I spent all of it in my search for hobbies to such an extent that I had no money left to even buy sandals.

00:54:25--> 00:54:40

Mr. humble himself was regarded as one of the Imams of the Muslims whose collection of heavy Muslims have been hand handle contains 27,000 for the largest collection of Muslim the heavy fat we have at present

00:54:44--> 00:54:45

Imam Mohammed

00:54:47--> 00:54:59

although he became an Imam later without that, during his days of study, when he was in muckety muck aroma, and he will he would visit the scholars to hear it and he was living in Makkah

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

Spend some time in Makkah,

00:55:02--> 00:55:14

he would learn, he would go to learn the youth as well. But in order to provide his own upkeep, and for his livelihood, he would actually carry luggage and be what we call a cooling.

00:55:16--> 00:55:40

He'll just be a luggage carrier and apporter in the streets of Makkah, so during the day, used to carry people's luggage and goods on his back, and he would work in that manner and earn his money. And that's how he would survive and provide his own upkeep. But all of his purpose from traveling to Makkah was not work. His purpose for traveling to Makkah, was to listen to it.

00:55:42--> 00:55:45

That's how they would spend their wealth.

00:55:46--> 00:55:48

That's how they would devote their time

00:55:49--> 00:55:52

and they were willing to tolerate anything hunger.

00:55:55--> 00:55:57

Long Germans

00:55:58--> 00:55:59

even a kick

00:56:02--> 00:56:04

I've related the story before about a man

00:56:05--> 00:56:07

in LA Halima

00:56:09--> 00:56:10

the Imam.

00:56:12--> 00:56:12

Yes,

00:56:13--> 00:56:20

ma'am. humble. And another third scholar who wasn't as famous or well known as the two of them.

00:56:22--> 00:56:28

They traveled south to Yemen to hear from Mr. Abdul Razak.

00:56:33--> 00:56:41

Anyway, on the way back, they came from Macau on the way back, they were traveling back to back above. So

00:56:45--> 00:56:45

yeah.

00:56:47--> 00:56:53

After all, they were human. He had a habit of testing scholars of heavy

00:56:56--> 00:56:57

so he said to

00:57:00--> 00:57:03

me, that come letters pass by

00:57:04--> 00:57:07

a bull name of Father of lidocaine.

00:57:08--> 00:57:12

And they have both studied under him before and heard from him.

00:57:16--> 00:57:33

So the two of the three of them have traveled all the way from Baghdad, south to Yemen back to Makkah home from Makkah, they were now returning. So he before returning to Baghdad, they said let us visit of all name and fatherlessness. Okay, who was one of the

00:57:35--> 00:57:43

teachers to great scholar. And they have both heard it from him themselves. But yeah, he's been a marine wanted to test

00:57:46--> 00:57:49

this famous of all my evil father. Good, okay.

00:57:50--> 00:58:03

And the reason he wanted to test him he had a habit of doing so he would test scholars of hobbies because they always wanted to make sure that they never that their memory never suffered a lapse, and that they were able to relate

00:58:04--> 00:58:13

correctly. So imagine he said to me, ma'am, I remember let's go and test him. So you must act with them. The humble said now, don't

00:58:14--> 00:58:27

you know that of all nine does not require testing. He won't fail. said no, no. Let's go and test them. So in my acronym, the handle had no choice but to go along with a woman.

00:58:29--> 00:58:38

When they arrive, they're a mom. Yeah, even a marine he wrote 30 Hadith, which they had all heard from Imam Abu Mohammed filterable.

00:58:39--> 00:58:50

And after every 10th, he he inserted the Hadith, which wasn't from the narration of Imam Abu morain and father.

00:58:52--> 00:59:11

But he interpolated it. So a total of 30 had the the 11th, or possibly the 10th, the 20th and the 30th. The both narrations they were three out of those 30 Hadeeth were ones that did not belong to him that he hadn't arranged with them.

00:59:12--> 00:59:30

So when they both arrived, they all sat down respectfully in front of Imam of all mine, and Imam yaquina Marine, he deliberately gave the sheets on the paper of Hades to the third one of them humble, nor did he read about himself, he gave it to the third scholar.

00:59:31--> 00:59:44

So they began reading the headings. And when they would read the headings, the teacher would confirm or he would just listen when he arrived that that first had easier said this other lesson and had easy is that

00:59:45--> 00:59:47

this isn't from my headings strike it off.

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

Then carried on when he got to the second interpolated had he and he heard it he immediately recognized and he said this is not from my head. He strike it out when he got to the third Hades

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

Finally at the end again, he said, this is not from my heavy strikers hat, then the man or woman or even further than the domain had grabbed him and humbled him.

01:00:09--> 01:00:11

And he said, Listen,

01:00:12--> 01:00:13

he sets all three of them.

01:00:15--> 01:00:18

his faults and pious to do something like this

01:00:21--> 01:00:28

is the last for this one. He's not able to do something like this, even though he was the one reading apps.

01:00:29--> 01:00:36

And he said, you is this is all you're doing. And then Imam Obama stood up and he actually kicked.

01:00:37--> 01:00:40

He kicked me out even on my team.

01:00:42--> 01:00:55

And in what according to one eration, he kicked him so hard, he struck him on his chest, and he rolled over. And then he got angry and went inside. So the man humbled said to him, I mean, I told you don't test him.

01:00:57--> 01:01:06

So your mom even said, one lie By Allah, this one kick was more sweet 11 pleasant to me than my entire journey.

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

So they would be willing to tolerate anything hunger,

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

long, arduous journeys, even a kick from which they will roll over.

01:01:20--> 01:01:57

But that was the man had this habit of testing each other. There's that famous story about a man behind the law when he arrived and I don't have time now, I will explain that On another occasion. But the point is, it's about sacrifice. And not just humorous sacrifices like this. We've all heard of him mumble we'll use a soprano law speaking about sacrificing time, leisure, pass time, quality, time, one's wealth. A man of all use of diameter law, Healy was a student of a man who has his own son passed away.

01:01:59--> 01:02:01

And when his son passed away,

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

on that day,

01:02:10--> 01:02:13

the time has arrived when he would normally go

01:02:15--> 01:02:36

and sit in the gathering of Imam Abu hanifa Russian law. So even on the day, his son passed away, a man who used to laugh and he said to his family, you continue with the preparations for the burial and the funeral. I will go, but you find remain with you, I will miss my gathering with him. And

01:02:39--> 01:02:50

I'm sorry, Mama will use the law. Even on the day of his son's death at the time of bereavement. In his own family, he went and he did not miss his gathering with him and

01:02:54--> 01:03:03

Mr. Abdul de la scholar of the late centuries, was a famous author of the collection of evil with the heap.

01:03:04--> 01:03:06

He used to live in a mother's house.

01:03:09--> 01:03:11

And he spent his whole time there.

01:03:13--> 01:03:14

And his son was with him.

01:03:15--> 01:03:26

And his son passed away. In Mom, I'm gonna have him in one video, la de la, accompanied his son's janazah all the way till the gates of the mother.

01:03:28--> 01:03:43

And then he told the people, you continue with my son janazah. And he bid farewell to his son's funeral and his janazah and body from the gates of the mother of Sir, but he did not go beyond.

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

Now,

01:03:47--> 01:03:51

with the story of a man of war, you saw with the story of the American out of the movie.

01:03:54--> 01:03:55

We may find this strange.

01:03:57--> 01:04:16

Of course, some may question that How could that be? The truth is this was their overriding overwhelming love for a suit Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they were in a different world altogether, that love for the knowledge of Allah and is that a source of the law legal system? This is what nourish them.

01:04:18--> 01:04:19

This is what

01:04:21--> 01:04:26

gave them energy. This is what energize them. This is what rejuvenated them.

01:04:27--> 01:04:54

This is what gave them life. Like Mr. Mallika with the law, he really he was teaching was bitten by a scorpion 17 times. But he did not stop teaching heavy. Even though his, the color of his face would change. He would go rather than pale red and pale the blood would drain rise from his face, and he will be wincing. You would be grimacing in pain.

01:04:57--> 01:04:59

And then the students couldn't understand what was going on.

01:05:00--> 01:05:41

But out of respect, they remain silent. When he concluded the teaching of heavy, he called them and he said check my back, they remove the cloak, and they found Scorpion class to his back that had bitten him 17 times. This is why Why didn't you tell us? Why didn't you stop? Is that out of respect for the lethal sort of somebody who sort of them. There's a similar story of Batman Bahati that would allow Haley but not teaching her the recital, or an Sala, he was bitten also, he did exactly the same. He continued with the Salah, and only after Salah he removed his cloak, and he called his students they checked, and, again, little Scorpion bites. Why? Why didn't he stop he said I was in

01:05:41--> 01:05:50

the middle of a surah. I did not want to end my Salah until I had completed Mysore. And it was obviously a very long sword.

01:05:51--> 01:05:54

This is what gave them energy.

01:05:56--> 01:05:59

Like the Panama. This is what

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

they live for. And this was their overriding passion. And

01:06:08--> 01:06:10

I relate to the story of Mr. Mohammed who are

01:06:12--> 01:06:23

a teacher of both non Muslim Imam Muhammad Abdullah great Imam. He was in his room, poring over his books of heavy with

01:06:24--> 01:06:27

in candle in a closed room.

01:06:30--> 01:06:31

You can imagine

01:06:36--> 01:06:44

his son came in, and he saw his father in this closed room surrounded by box, poring over the box of heavily

01:06:45--> 01:06:47

in candle lands.

01:06:48--> 01:06:56

So you said to his father, he took pity on his father, and instead of Father, why don't you relieve yourself for a while? So his father replied to him, and

01:06:57--> 01:07:12

luckily, luckily, that somehow Can you tell me to relieve myself for a while, when I find myself that I am with a large messenger, his companions. That's exactly how they felt they were transported.

01:07:15--> 01:07:16

That was their world.

01:07:17--> 01:07:33

And I've explained this before, just like today, we find ourselves buried in novels, in books. People pick up a book, it may be fantastical book a fancy sorcery, magic,

01:07:35--> 01:07:36

another world.

01:07:39--> 01:07:42

goblins and hermits and all sorts.

01:07:45--> 01:07:57

wizards warlocks, dragons, people, people can pick up a book in advance, and they become so immersed in it, that they become oblivious to all around them. totally oblivious.

01:07:59--> 01:08:18

People can watch a film. And they can become so engrossed so immersed, that again, they are oblivious to their surroundings, whatever is happening around them, they might have a peripheral sense of it. But their focus their attention is undivided,

01:08:19--> 01:08:28

on their objects of enjoyment. And I explained a few weeks ago that this is actually a form of hypnosis in itself.

01:08:32--> 01:08:49

They will do the same. But their subject matter was the words of Allah and the words was the source of the love, it was in them in the This was their passion, your mama will use the law, he was on his deathbed. And he was on his deathbed and he was discussing the Messiah of Hajj.

01:08:52--> 01:08:59

Someone asked him that all your mom even even now in your final few moments. And he says, it may be

01:09:01--> 01:09:11

the end of my time. But if I can spend even a bit of time either benefiting myself by learning or benefiting someone else by teaching them why not.

01:09:12--> 01:09:15

So in even on their deathbed

01:09:18--> 01:09:44

the position of Elon and the position of orlimar is great. Without doubt, the position of knowledge and the virtue of the people of knowledge is great without doubt, but it must be true knowledge and that true beneficial knowledge cannot be gained without true sacrifice. And sacrifice doesn't just mean traveling for the sake of knowledge, but it means so much more. Sacrificing what we love, our leisure, our time.

01:09:46--> 01:09:48

Our wealth that you spend

01:09:52--> 01:09:56

in a famous heavy sort of lump sum, the Lombardi who was one of them saying is

01:09:57--> 01:09:59

that when a man is a man

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

Live in Southern

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

Illinois,

01:10:03--> 01:10:04

Illinois,

01:10:05--> 01:10:14

Muslim, Elon, Elon, Elon, so that is a mountain in Sun in Qatar environment in London Farah in London sort of putting Giardia

01:10:15--> 01:10:26

into a wallet inside in the old Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, a man dies, all of his deeds are cut off from him except three things.

01:10:27--> 01:10:38

Except, so the ajaya perpetual charity, or knowledge which is benefited from by others, or a pious son, who continues to pray for

01:10:39--> 01:10:41

what will really continue.

01:10:42--> 01:10:52

If we wish to spend on anything, then let's spend on these three things. So the ajaya perpetual charities,

01:10:53--> 01:10:55

knowledge that others will benefit from,

01:10:56--> 01:11:15

and children who will continue to pray for us. And the reason I mentioned this, is because all three categories covers all three categories. If one spends on knowledge, whether for oneself or someone else, then whoever learns of benefits from that knowledge, they will gain a share of it.

01:11:17--> 01:11:20

If someone actually teaches and bequeaths knowledge,

01:11:22--> 01:11:22

then

01:11:23--> 01:11:30

that's the second category, they will continue to enjoy the law. And a pious son

01:11:31--> 01:11:45

will continue continues to pray for how can we ensure the good upbringing and the good education of our children. The only way we can do that is to invest in resources.

01:11:47--> 01:11:51

So this hadith is beautiful. But if you look at it covers all three categories.

01:11:52--> 01:12:22

And this is what the LMR did of the past. So when we speak about sacrificing for knowledge, we're not just talking about time, we're not just talking about traveling, we're not just talking about wealth, we're talking about sacrificing what we love, we love our leisure, we love our free time, we love our comfort. But until we do not sacrifice all these things, we will never gain true knowledge. I'll end with just want that one famous story about learning

01:12:23--> 01:12:29

of again, one of the scholars of the earlier generations in the molybdenum crusade

01:12:31--> 01:12:34

and involves a man with a hammer. It's a very famous story.

01:12:36--> 01:12:56

A man but even a muscle It was a young scholar from quarter analysts during the era of Muslim rule in Spain. In the many, many centuries ago. He was a scholar of the third century. So he actually died in 276.

01:12:57--> 01:13:06

So he was a contemporary of at the tongue of a man was a young man. But he was a contemporary of most of the authors of heavy.

01:13:08--> 01:13:17

So to seven, six, that means he died just one year after Mr. abordar luckily the author of the sun, so Imam

01:13:19--> 01:13:41

and he died exactly 20 years after a memoir. So Mr. McKeon and Lucien Ray when he was in Cordova, he had heard and that was under omiya grew. He had heard of the scholars of Hades in Iraq and in the jars in the Arabian Peninsula, and he was very eager to meet with him.

01:13:43--> 01:13:46

So he traveled with intentional learning.

01:13:47--> 01:13:49

And he traveled all the way from

01:13:50--> 01:13:58

in Muslim Spain at the time. And he undertook this journey and he vowed to a law that he will travel only on Fox,

01:13:59--> 01:14:00

you would never ride.

01:14:02--> 01:14:04

He traveled on foot all the way from

01:14:06--> 01:14:09

down south, across the Strait of Gibraltar,

01:14:11--> 01:14:13

all across northern Africa.

01:14:17--> 01:14:24

The Arab lands through Egypt through the Sinai Peninsula by fought Pamela

01:14:25--> 01:14:27

across the Jordanian desert

01:14:29--> 01:14:34

and the Iraqi desert deserts until he eventually arrived in Baku.

01:14:37--> 01:14:40

But before he arrived in Baghdad, he heard

01:14:43--> 01:14:54

the Imam humbler Abdullah Healy, the one person he really wants to hear and learn from. He had been placed under house arrest and banned from teach.

01:14:55--> 01:14:59

So, as though his world fell apart

01:15:01--> 01:15:05

And he was unsure of what to do, but then he decided to press on and continue.

01:15:07--> 01:15:14

So he arrived took up read books and residence somewhere. And then he went to the German machine of book.

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

And there there was a very large gathering. And there was a scholar teaching.

01:15:22--> 01:15:27

And that scholar was none other than Yeah, even a marine. But when I spoke of earlier, the companion of Imam

01:15:33--> 01:15:40

Imam, Mohammed Al Rahman de la la used to say, in any heavy that you have no marine doesn't know is not.

01:15:42--> 01:16:10

And yet even a marine says I'm wrote a million Hadeeth with my own hands 1,000,030 and I've mentioned this before, although in total, the actual texts of heavy are only a couple of 1000. So how do suddenly do we get this huge number? It's because when you have the text of Hadith, and then you have the senate the chain of narration, normally in the terminology of the scholars of heavy

01:16:11--> 01:16:34

the same text, but with a different chain of narration is regarded as another heavy. So, this is why the we only have a couple of 1000 main bodies of text of Hades with that attached chains, they become numerous. So he says I wrote 1 million it from my own hands. So yes, even though my aim was

01:16:36--> 01:16:37

delivering a lecture

01:16:39--> 01:16:43

Oh, by the way, yeah, caribou Marine, to LA he was

01:16:45--> 01:16:45

a follow up.

01:16:47--> 01:16:59

Despite such knowledge of the heady he was actually a follower of Hanafi Fiqh. So yeah, he was a marine was sitting there teaching in the jam, yeah. But above and

01:17:01--> 01:17:04

beyond the muffler that and Lucy went and sat.

01:17:05--> 01:17:08

And he realized that the scholar is

01:17:12--> 01:17:20

giving his verdicts about narrators of Hadith and about other scholars, who's reliable, who isn't, etc. So he

01:17:22--> 01:17:28

approached him and asked him that I want to have come from far under loss. I'd like to ask you about

01:17:30--> 01:17:32

someone. What do you say have?

01:17:34--> 01:17:39

So yeah, hidden domains stared at him for a while, and said to him,

01:17:42--> 01:17:44

You asked me about

01:17:45--> 01:17:47

the Imam of the Muslims.

01:17:51--> 01:17:53

being Muslim, when he left that gathering,

01:17:55--> 01:18:08

he made inquiries about humbled residents. And then he went to his house, knocked on the door. In my humble Van De La Jolla, they open the door.

01:18:09--> 01:18:10

And when he saw him,

01:18:11--> 01:18:15

he mom, humble out of fear, because he was under house arrest.

01:18:17--> 01:18:18

And he was banned from teaching

01:18:19--> 01:19:06

bound from people go into him, learning from him. So he pulled back even the monolith inside to the corridor side corridor. And he said, What are you doing here? Don't you know that you shouldn't be coming to visit me. So he said, Oh, you mom. I'm such and such. I have traveled from very far, because I wish to learn from you. Just as Where have you traveled from? Since the very far from the further slamming sisters from unlovable and Muslim used to me and still is the whole of Northern Africa sort of regard as regarded as a lovely warm and lovely will sister from the Muslim? She said no, from from even further anonymous. So this is indeed you have come from very far. You are exactly

01:19:06--> 01:19:21

the kind of person I would love to teach. But as you know, I have been banned from teaching. So imagine being a Muslim said to him, are we Ma'am, if you will grant me permission, I will find a way of coming to you.

01:19:22--> 01:19:39

whenever I can, every day if possible without exposing myself or you to risk. If I come in that manner. Would you be willing to teach me just one or two Have you seen my number said five. So the next day but even the muscle of

01:19:40--> 01:19:59

he dressed up as a beggar took a staff wrapped a dirty turban around his head, got a cam and started walking along the street shouting Shay and Miller shaman in LA, meaning give something for the sake of Allah. He wouldn't take anything and then he made his way

01:20:00--> 01:20:46

Acting disguised as a beggar to the house of a man after them the handle and the knocking on the door church and in law, and then the handle would open the door pulling to one side. And there when, when he would be safely inside the corridor of the house, he used to take out a piece of paper, and a pen and the mean pops from his sleeve. And it's done there and say your mom relate, and your mom would have handled them relate this chain of narration, sometimes what have you sometimes too heavy, sometimes most three, and then safely tuck everything away, and go back to acting like a beggar. And he did this every day until he says I had collected 300, heavy from Mr. Humble approximately, or

01:20:46--> 01:21:23

just over 300 heads. Then the the ruler who had banned him and humble from teaching from the one of the busted rulers, he died. And when he was succeeded by another other family, but who was a bit more sympathetic. He withdrew that ban, and he restored him humble to his position, and it was granted permission to teach once again. So once again, he would teach in the masjid openly. So when he started teaching again, openly 1000s and 1000s of people gathered without that in the army.

01:21:24--> 01:21:53

and building a muscle it says, I will see a bit far. So in my humble saw me, and he called me and he made space for me. And then he made me come and sits in front of him. And then he told the whole congregation. This is what you call a valuable student of knowledge. This is what you call a student's knowledge. And then he would pay special attention to me. One day, I fell ill and I was living in a hospital.

01:21:55--> 01:22:00

I fell ill. So in my humble he never saw me.

01:22:01--> 01:22:09

So he and I fell ill I didn't go for one or two, a few days. So my rambling quiet about me. And then he was told that

01:22:12--> 01:22:42

I was ill. So he came with his whole entourage of students and attendance to the hospital. So when he came to the hospital, there was suddenly a huge uproar that Imam of the Muslims have come the man of the Muslims has come. And then they rushed to me and said the amount of the Muslims has come looking for you. So my humble cane, and he paid him a visit er the visiting the sick, Pamela. And then all he said to him was son,

01:22:43--> 01:23:28

that you is no health and sickness and there is no sickness and health. What am I was trying to say is, this is the decree of Allah. When Allah has decreed that you will be ill there can be no health, Allah has decreed that you will be healthy. There can be no illness. He wasn't he, it was just your mom, rambles on words of wisdom. He said, Son, do not worry. There can be no health and sickness there can be no sickness and health. So what can you lose? He says I was ill. But as soon as he started speaking, I heard the scratching of pens on paper meeting the students would suddenly take notes and write down whatever their teacher was saying, such diligence notes even standing up when

01:23:28--> 01:24:09

thronged in a small room in a hospital, visiting a sick student. And then giving them other than and Lucy says that, in this when he left, everyone started honoring me that Who are you that even the mom of the Muslims humble comes to visit you is that from that moment onwards, they have probably ignored him before that. But from that moment onwards, the people of the hospital, they brought me food and drink and clothing. And they started looking after me even better than my family could have looked after me. And all of that was through the Baraka of the attention of the man of the Muslims handle. And why was it? Why Why did he pay any attention, because in him he recognized the

01:24:09--> 01:24:56

characteristics of a true student of knowledge. Without doubt he had walked all the way from LA to Baka da and Bobby McCullough them after learning from him eventually and visiting other areas when back and then he made a second journey, again to learn how to leave and he went back, and he then died in 276, HD in ortho. That's just one example amongst many, these were the older man, although I've spoken about their learning of Hadith. I don't wish to restrict this to have Eve ultimately had either as part of it. So the same is applicable to learning the Koran learning to come to law school, there'll be a law firm and the law or the law or emphases added later by member Hardin, Mr.

01:24:56--> 01:24:59

Muslim and others. He says that is not

01:25:00--> 01:25:02

A single verse of the arm.

01:25:05--> 01:25:54

Except that I know when it was revealed, that is not a single, I have the honor verse, except that I know where it was revealed and for what it was revealed. And if I knew, and the lighting through the another narration essays, I have learned 70 students directly from the noble tongue of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he says, If I knew anyone who was more knowledgeable of the book of Allah than I am, and camels amounts could reach him, then I would ride these mountain camels to travel to them, in order to learn from him. And one of his students says, I would go and sit in the gatherings of the companions. And they all have heard of this claim and challenge by Abdullah

01:25:54--> 01:26:17

who was rude, and no one would refute, because they knew Indeed, he was of the most knowledgeable of the book of Allah. But despite being such a great scholar, what does he say? If I knew that there was anyone who had more knowledge of me than the other than me of the Holy Quran, and camels amounts could reach in our right to him to learn from him.

01:26:18--> 01:26:19

And even

01:26:20--> 01:26:25

more, and I spoke about some of the Allah Horan was such a great scholar of the aura

01:26:27--> 01:26:48

of knowledge, he says, and he was based in the mesh, that if I was made to forget, if I had if I forget one verse of the arm, and I would have to travel all the way to work with him and which is the southernmost tip of human in order to be reminded of that verse, our travel and it would be a journey worthwhile.

01:26:49--> 01:26:54

So these were the Sahaba de la. De whether it's whether it's

01:26:56--> 01:27:01

when it comes to fit, Allah says in the Quran, Omar Khan noonien, through

01:27:02--> 01:27:05

falola forum equally forgotten min ba.

01:27:06--> 01:27:09

Dean, will you in the room is our general

01:27:10--> 01:27:17

rule of law says that, why isn't it that a group of believers does not rise and go and travel

01:27:18--> 01:27:20

so that they may learn.

01:27:23--> 01:28:10

They may learn and gain an understanding of religion, so that it may warn those who returned to them when they do return. That means there should always be a group of believers dedicated to learning, and if that means with sacrifice, sharing that knowledge and fulfilling this collective responsibility. So knowledge is where that dance of a great virtue, and the people of knowledge are people of great virtue, the students of knowledge are ones of great virtue, but that can never be gained without true sacrifice, sacrificing our time, our leisure, our pastimes, our wealth, even in the manner of the noble companions and these great classical scholars of Islam. It is through their

01:28:10--> 01:28:52

sacrifices, that knowledge has reached us, we are able to share this knowledge with each other today, and that we are able to practice our religion, that which has come to us by sacrifice cannot be sustained except with sacrifice, and cannot be conveyed to the next generation except through sacrifice. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala enable us to understand lawmakers amongst those who gained the knowledge of a last word and the words of our messenger some of the love and even some of them. We pray just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was taught to pray that our Lord increases knowledge. And just as he used to say, Allah, we ask you for beneficial knowledge, and we

01:28:52--> 01:29:05

seek refuge in You and we seek your protection from knowledge, which does not benefit us was the law was in America after he was sold in the Vietnam War. He was in panic a lot more comedic.

01:29:07--> 01:29:07
