My dearest brothers and sisters, and mothers and fathers in Islam, and uncles and Auntie's if needed.
Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
May the peace and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah be upon you all welcome to day three of knowledge hi 2017 courtesy of a Cultural Institute,
brothers and sisters in Islam.
But the family informed me that you guys need some broke.
I'm not here to advertise any brands By the way, I have to set this disclaimer because of the camera and the audio recording here. However, it's also a good idea. If you sleep early at night. This is a good idea. It helps. Because if you don't sleep early at night, it makes it difficult for you to attend the 200 prayer and there is a clear difference in terms of the attendees today as or in comparison to the attendees yesterday. And since we are a people of inviting towards good and forbidding evil, it is upon each and every one of you to figure out who wasn't at the Edgewood prayer today. And it is for you to also look at those who are not sitting in this class today. And
were here yesterday, and it is for you to give them some advice.
Or at least check up on them. What happened. Are you okay? Is your health okay? Right? Maybe they're not well check up on them. This is the way of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Where are you my dear brother, we are you mighty assisted the class I started I didn't see that the 100 prayer. I think I saw you at breakfast somehow. But then I didn't see you in the class again. So what's happening? Do you have knowledge fatigue? They say yes. And you have to do some power there right? In the levena, Emmylou, I'm going to say the head, what also will help but also the saga, we discussed the four criterion for survivors from sudo, to Lhasa during the first day, and make it a point that our
ending is stronger than our beginning. And tomorrow will be the last day and obviously today really marks the last day of the intensive knowledge ship. So you want to make your ending stronger. You want to make sure you attend that tahajjud prayer tomorrow, you want to make sure you attend the classes today and attend the closing tomorrow, because I will be highlighting as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us actions are judged by the ending. So make sure your ending is strong, and do some power to your fellow attendees and teach them this important lesson. Yesterday, we discuss the first hedingham to the left. As I said what we shared was a drop
from an ocean in terms of the knowledge of this Hadith, such is the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
I had some questions or follow up questions from the session yesterday. Someone said what about the person who intends Allah subhana wa Tada. And during the worship, they feel there's the presence of someone
in the room, and because of that they beautified more they worship.
Yesterday you said or it was said that this doesn't cancel out the the entire effort but they're not rewarded for the extra. Alright, so they're not rewarded for the extra or they're punished for the extra. Right. And that's a good question. That is a good question. And we say yes, they are liable to being punished for the excess for the for the extra that was done rather than a love they're not rewarded, and they're liable to being punished for it and they must seek forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala for that extra and that is why we were taught from the center to reset to constantly or to be to engage Allah subhanho wa Taala with the following dua to Allah Allahu Allah
in the road to becoming an OSHA cabbie. kashaya was
Alamo Bay was the hero Kadima and a movie Allahu Allah in Arabic I seek refuge in You men and oceanica cache. I seek protection in you from associating partners with you in any way. Well Adam will be whilst I know I seek your protection from things well as the video kalimera and iMovie and I seek your forgiveness if I did this unknown.
And this should be a vital to add that we make in our day. Right. And in a talk that I gave in Melbourne on the power of duality. Recently in my last visit, I spoke about this point that we rarely make.
To be honest, even if you think you make do out often it's not enough if you understood the reality of the law and how much we need to ask from Allah subhanho wa Taala how much assistance we need to seek from Allah subhanho wa Taala so especially for those who are that are workers and I see a lot of our workers in the room this is where I should be should be moist on your tank before the action during the action and especially after the action and mmm Sarah had Buddha was asked about how he manages to maintain his laughs when he stands
on the masala and mustard and never
you know because must be the number one it's a pretty prestigious masala is the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it's got 1000s of muscle is your one scholar is multiplied 1000 times hamdulillah we're going to insha Allah Allah take us there and return us back home safely and successfully me. So how do you manage this and he said, I never stopped the Sunnah except that I make dua to Allah that if the Salah is not for his sake alone, that it causes me to die before the technique.
He takes me back to him before I announced that technique that he takes me back to him before I place in a trial. There's no doubt that's a big drive.
You rather return back to Allah than to stop that Salah for other than Allah subhanho wa Taala because that will be a distraction. You know, the return back to Allah subhanho wa Taala safely then to remain for a moment
paving your destruction, members of Hannover to Allah protect us. So this is the way of, of the scholars and those who are close to Allah Subhana. Who was there under the fear that was the the aspect of making any of the worship for other than Allah Subhana? What was that? Did you think of any questions that you'd like me to address now before we move on from yesterday's session? Because I think as some of you have said, we've touched on points that
we would love to learn about, we've been wanting to know about and we've got questions about we've never really received
the answers to these questions in a sort of structured, not knowledge based kind of setting. And as you can see, you can tie all these lessons to the first hadith of Irvine and never do you have any questions before we move on. Okay, so the next headings we want to take is another mighty Hadith. And all the hadith of this particular book MIT. And as you'll see as you progress through, you know, a reading to know what will amaze you is the complete the order of
how they've been ordered that first we have to be near now we have this next Eddie's which is considered a student and we'll discuss it, like we have sort of had to have, which is on le kita, the mother of the book, The scholars say the next Heidi, some of the scholars have said this hadith his own, as soon as the mother of Heidi is the mother hadith of Heidi, right. But this hadith comes straight after the Hadith about a phallus. Because if you don't have sincerity, you're wasting your time with the next head. Right? So look at the order and then and then you will find a hadith that will follow up, there will be a continued explanation of some of the aspects from this habit like
the editor will come after about Islam has been built upon five
Or Islam has been built upon five, right? And that Hadith is actually present in the Hadith that we're going to take now. So I just want you to appreciate the thought process of
that. Yes, they never mentioned any comments. This book has no comment, there's no headings, but we can still benefit from the from the tip of the scholars in terms of how they place the head.
And so this is number one in terms of instruction number two also in terms of importance because no doubt matters of belief Can people the action parts,
and the first headed you take has got to do with Toshi.
And when we take the next Hadith The first question that Jared is going to ask is about the matters of Islam in the matters of a man which is the basis of V.
Right. So there's a few benefits that we gain in terms of our understanding of how amazing our scholars work, even though
They didn't write anything. So just looking at how they placed how the order is, you know the order of the method of placement of the different ahead. We benefit these two things, number one, education methodology, right structure cohesiveness between
the veneration is the number two, how they, you can actually deduce from the stroke of doubt
that you've got to start with the most important thing, which is belief without belief, nothing else matters when you've taught them about the importance of tawheed. Now you got to teach them what that entails. So we're not going into the heads of nL halala by Gino caramba, which we discussed yesterday, my mama said, this is one of the one of the three Hadees that Islam revolves around. That hasn't come yet. Right? We haven't gone to the Hadith about that Hadees hasn't come yet. We still be focusing on beliefs now explaining what belief entails. And it will continue to happen in a process until we move on outside of the pillars of Islam and the pillars of Eman. And then we move into the
into matters pertaining to jurisprudence, rulings, and fit matters and objectives of the Sharia, and general manners and morals that you need to have as a Muslim. Right? Because very early on, we won't be doing it and this is not a child. But very early on. You see the hadith of I think it's a bit of Yamaha, which talks about how Allah gathers us in the womb of our mothers at odd intervals. Someone will say why is this head is coming here. But this is a powerful Hadith, in terms of cementing our knowledge of number one factor of law, so kind of words, and that he is our father, he is upon all evil. And this is teaching us the reality when we say are meant to be law, we believe in Allah. So
what do you believe about this Allah. And then also when you look at the pillars of Eman, you will be learning about well, cadre hiree worshiping the culture of Allah. And then Allah is teaching in this Hadith, how he says the angel was the goddess of how long you will live, and your sustenance. And whether you will be from the people of the house by or the people of gentlemen, because of your deeds, of course. So this is an education, which builds our knowledge
of the foundation that we were just taught in the previous generation. So it's phenomenal, honestly, how, you know, this thought process that went into it. And think about this, that we got a bonus for the moment. Now he comes in as an throughout, you have this cohesion, and even Roger as his age until we get the idea of if we look at the majority of his book, and we have this cohesion, we have this synergy between the narrations and today we talk about methodology of education methodology of teaching, I kid you not just by studying subtle aspects from the writings of our scholars, you could write books in terms of teaching methodology to Hana. So let's take this next. Howdy. This Hadith,
as I said, is the mother of the son and you'll see why.
Let's try this one.
This is the number two
be on screen
so this is the second Hadeeth of your ma'am and nawawi and this hadith is known as Hadith gibreel and
as I said the scholars have said that this hadith is a Sunnah
Eman and happy to ban hedger especially Rahim Allah the famous Shafi scholar and the person who explained Sahih al Bukhari in a book called but Halle Berry, he mentioned that Remember to be
him Allah who was a famous Maliki scholar
from Cuba, who has a famous succeed, succeed. He says this, he says that,
that this particular Howdy, it qualifies to be called a student, it qualifies to be called on as soon why, because of what it contains, from the knowledge of Islam and the knowledge of email and the knowledge of Excel.
in this particular Hadith,
or before that there's a desire in the Quran,
in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says,
In the La Jolla movie largely Well, certainly what it is in Cordoba, or in her annual fashion, it will mean curry well Barbie, right.
They say some scholars have said in this particular area, all of the most of the game of the religion, most of the rulings of the religion are in this app. In the La Jolla mobile ads. Allah commands you towards either justice, right, and equity.
In the in the law, I will add one cent and excellence and excellence in your belief, excellence in your actions, excellence in your relationships with Allah and the relationship with the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala. What is it about and Allah commands you towards maintaining family relations looking after the bonds of kinship? So that's These are three things when ye Allah and Allah forbids you. And in fact, a lot of words in morality
and law forbids you from that which I would like dislikes or mooncup, which Allah has cited as Haram. Allah teaches you and wants you to come to the Quran so that perhaps you may remember so just kind of say most of the knowledge of
the Quran most of the readings of the Quran in this particular
a and they say
With regards to this particular study, then most of the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam are in this particular Hadith, given what this hadith contains, from the knowledge that was taught to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam by Allah subhanho wa Taala
this hadith as I said, it's called Hadith gibril. Why because gibril Allah is Allah is the one who
comes down. And in this hadith we learn a little bit about or we learn about Islam, at least the foundations of it. We learn about the foundations of Eman, we learn about the foundations of ethics and we learn about good character, good morals, good etiquette, we learn about some of the some of the minor science related to the date of judgment, we learn about the etiquettes of seeking knowledge or how transformational knowledge comes about. And I promised you yesterday that I'm on the verge of releasing an article called transformers, right? And this hadith really contains knowledge related to progress and transformation. And we will see this in Sharla as we traverse
through this, this Heidi, and
one of the evidence is very early on from your reading of the of the English translation on the screen as the Arabic was being recited one of the understandings you would have or you should have insha Allah, taken from your reading of the English translation, at least, is that really this hadith is about teaching us about our Deen because after all these questions were asked, and all the answers were given. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he came to teach you your religion, he came to teach you your religion. So that last bit really emphasizes everything that is
or that comes
before it. Now.
At the outset of this particular Howdy, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, WA Pavarotti Allah one, he was the narrator of which had is the first heading. And he's also the narrator of this particular heading. He says that we will want to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And we learn from this from the outset, my dear his brothers and sisters in his lab, how the companions were always surrounding the teacher. Yesterday, I was asked the question that, you know, how much Islamic knowledge Should I seek? How much learning should I do? Right? You know, that's a bad question, how much learning should I do? Because not everyone is supposed to become a Shia. But everyone is
supposed to become a teacher of the religion and a preserve of the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam. Right. And seeking knowledge. At an advanced level, as we said yesterday, is a communal obligation. But how much should you seek, you should seek everything, all the knowledge that you as a Muslim, you have to know, yesterday, we spoke about this, that this two sets of knowledge, the first set is knowledge that no Muslim is excused for being ignorant about for not having knowledge on if you don't have knowledge of the matters, that you need to have knowledge about, like how to pray, how to pay your soccer, how to observe your head, if you're doing trading
matters pertaining to trade, if you're getting married, the look of marriage, you have to know this, nobody's telling you that you need to reach a level of HD head and do patois and come up with rulings for new matches in the religion or certain situations that the Muslims fall in. But we're talking about normal circumstances that most of the Muslims live by the knowledge that the Sharia has taught us as knowledge that you have to know it's wise for you to know it. You have to study that knowledge. So that's number one. In terms of you, you you don't have to be as I said, mostly of the religion holiday. Even Waleed was not a multi. He was a man in the front line. He was the source
of a lot of drama. Now he was not a multi.
Right, he was a trader.
impact from the Sahaba all the Sahaba 1000s of them. 10s of 1000s of them, only 130 of them.
were known for fatwa. And even out of the one in 130 are included in the list of 130 are people who have passed one pathway in their life, but they were included in it. And this makes 130
out of the 137 were known for the hotel, seven from the Sahaba who studied their religion to at advanced level. And guess what Abu huraira is not from them, who was the narrator of most of the of the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam This doesn't mean he was in a party, but he was not from the muck they will fetch Allah He was not from those who were known established for fatawa during the time of the sahab.
Abdullah bin Mr. Root Abdullah bin Omar Abdullah bin at best eye shadow the Allahu zedi
That'd probably allow me
an idea of the Allah who I'm seven. These are seven who are known to be from the movies.
So this should teach us, right? That you don't know what he's telling you to become a chef.
But you are being told that even the other Sahaba the hardest even worries,
cardiopulmonary then those lights meaning those who are known to be the frontline battalions, the traders from the Sahaba.
The policy imposes on the Sahaba they all had the knowledge of the religion that they had to know there was no excuse for them not to know it. And that is what is asked of. That's number one. Number two, what is also asked of you is to have a relationship with a spiritual guide, someone who has Tibet, someone who is founded in his or her religion, and she is a means of your steadfastness, why he or she is a means of your steadfastness. Why, because especially today, we live in testing time,
time times of trials and tribulation tribulations that hit us at speeds and quantities that perhaps the world never experienced before.
So you got to have that guide. And perhaps today, the minimum viable product with a minimum viable requirements in terms of the knowledge that every Muslim should know is more than the minimum viable requirement of the generations before. Why because we live in times, where misconceptions that affect our religion have these misconceptions are flourishing. And they never had the same traction and momentum during previous generations. So you can't expect that, you know, my parents use this. So it's enough for me to know this. No, they lived at a different time you live at a different time.
Then knowledge of Akita would suffice them in their time Alhamdulillah. That was good. So they had knowledge of the compulsory matters of the deen, which they needed to know, with Allah, they are absorbed in terms of obligation. But that doesn't mean the same criterion applies to you because you live at a different time, which requires you to upskill yourself are to assist yourself by having the skills to ensure that your Eman is protected. And if you don't have that knowledge, which will lead to your Eman taking a dip or your Eman being lost, then you are sinful for not having that knowledge. Because the Sherry is complete this Quran will last on the day of the AMA, the teachings
of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam are to act as a guide for us. There's nothing the world can bring. Except the antidote to the disease is in the Quran. And Sunnah. You have to study is there, maybe your parents didn't need? Maybe your grandparents didn't need, but you need
and then not knowing? Does that mean? You don't have to know? Because they lived at a time and you live at a time? Does that make sense? So no one is telling you to become the witch, they don't have to have the religion. But we're telling you to have an acute awareness of your circumstances, your situations, your dynamic environments, or environments are very dynamic. They're not static, like before change a minute now is, I mean, I might be exaggerating now. But it's like that, like a minute is too much. In a minute things change.
In a minute thing change,
technology changes, inventions are created, things are discovered. Ideas change paradigms are shifting.
Right? And especially in a world where what's right and what's wrong, is being governed by policymakers
and policy makers, they change every three years.
So every few years, something new is coming about.
That's it right. So this is the answer to that particular question. So here we have the sahaabah constantly with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because everything that has been, Allah has kept in preservation to us matters to us the fact that these words of God one day we were with him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that these words have been preserved till today and will be preserved till the Day of piano teaches us how important it is for you to have your spiritual guide. And that is why in some of the youth that I mentor advisors that every one of us each and every one of us, we should have a board of directors.
The teachers have as a project and a project is you. project you write and every project needs a board of directors. You have a board of directors, a spiritual guide, a person who knows halal and haram, a person who will motivate you when you are when you are experiencing a dip.
person who is who's wise, who you can bounce your ideas off and get some Sure. So you are not judging jury of your decisions, right? And people who sincerely wish you well and will answer your call when you call them and you contact them and you let them know that you I want you to be from my board of directors, if I send you a message, please respond to me within three days, for example,
right. And these people are people you respect. And you you know, so that you when you when you need a partner, there's someone there to answer your call. When you feel there's a misconception coming to you, there's someone who you have access, you need to treat yourself as a project, and she that you should have the board of directors or so However, they had their board of directors, and it was a prophet sallallahu it was right at the multiple hats in the board, because he was the Prophet of Allah. Right? All guidance stemmed from him. And he was their board of directors. So Omar is saying one day we work the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his father Alina, suddenly this man
appeared, Shadi biop appear
he had pristine white clothing
and shredded so add a sharp and pristine,
a pristine black color bit.
And pristine means it was combed, it was it was smart, right? The shadows, as they say in the Arabic language and he, he came out and he was he was ready, ready for what? To come in? Teach. But before that to come in, because the scholars say jabril came as a student and as a teacher,
as a student in how he came to the gathering of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as you will see
today, how do we come to learn about Islam, with the clothes that we wear in two days ago, I forgot to do my laundry. This doesn't smell too bad. I'll just wear this cup.
Don't take pride in ourselves.
GVO comes in not just white clothes, pristine white clothes. And they should teach us the borders of the color white color white was beloved to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the owner was taught to bury those who passed away in the color in white in a white cup and preferably right they should be covered in white.
Because white denotes cleanliness. And this knowledge is clean. And this knowledge is not only purified in and of itself, it purifies you so you come to it ready to be purified. You come to it after having a shower and have to dressing smartly. And after checking yourself in the mirror, that you're ready to stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala because you've come here for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala we spoke yesterday about seeking knowledge being an act of worship. This is how jabril came, he was worshipping Allah. So you wanted to stand in front of Allah in the same way he would stand in front of people and not feel ashamed. Today's halala we will not stand in front of
people in some of the clothing that we wear and the way we look when we start our Salah. We start our Salah in our pajamas,
saying your Salah is not accepted. Because as you cover your hours as the condition. This is not good ethical with Allah Subhana water that doing your best for example, you if someone knocked your door, you're an open, you're doing your best between your best and you're observing the sun. This is not good manners. When you come to seek knowledge come with good manners as well. Remember, we spoke about Transformers keep this name in your mind, I might release the article today, I might have to skip the boat trip.
This is transformative knowledge, knowledge changes you brothers and sisters, you want the knowledge to grow you. The first thing is to be serious about attending it come dressed well. After having your breakfast that will keep you awake after having slept well at night. And you'll be ready to receive from the most valuable inheritance on us today. That's when you will grow from knowing to growing today. There's too much knowing
not enough growing too much movement, not enough progress. Why? Because we have not taken care of the function of transformation, the function of growing the function of development, the function of progress, we haven't taken care of it. So there's a lot of knowledge here, but there's nothing internalized. And we are running around. But we still on the same spot. I don't know if you're on my telegram channel once I put up a post about Alice in Wonderland.
Right about how we benefit from that story. Because when we were literally in school, the teacher would read us the book, see school had some benefit.
We just didn't have that understanding that what is this book trying to say?
The book had benefit
When you're small boys, girls no mommy's sitting on the floor nicely. Teacher reading the book, everyone's happy, right? And the teacher is telling you about this Queen, the Red Queen was the Red Queen, the Red Queen or not the White Queen, the Red Queen, right, the Red Queen and she shouting Alice Run, run Alice in the bottle. And Alice is running, running, running, running, and she's out of breath. And she says, I'm running in the Queen eating pasta, pasta, pasta, pasta, pasta, and Alice is running, and she's out of breath. And then she stops and she looks around. And she says she sees herself on the same spot.
You know, when I think of that, I think of how we learn Islam today, running from one YouTube lecture to the next one conference to the next, right. Not with our notebooks with our selfie cameras. This is how Islamic learning is today.
Caught up in the hype casual learning, I feel good I can tick the boxes of doing something Islamic. I feel pious because I attended the talk of Scheffler.
And with the price of oil you ran around that day
what's going to happen on the day of Pamela
was going to tell you
that you knew what did you do?
You can't tell allows ignorant.
No growing no transformation. Right. So jabril comes in this way. Now firstly, you got to understand this was a phenomenal scene. Because we're talking Medina at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam it's gated it's small mosquito neverwet today
is bigger than what Medina was at the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam
murshida neverwet today is bigger.
alberca doc al Horford of it was in the Hadith sometimes isn't Alberta which is the graveyard of the prophets, the graveyard of Medina, it's called Al Assad because they had a lot of theories of Arab countries that was in this graveyard was considered to be on the outskirts of Medina, as you read in the sooner that there will be statement saying that we go into the outskirts of Medina to bury the body outskirts.
Today, the graveyard has expanded inwards, and the message has expanded outwards, that the graveyard is a stone's throw away.
Right. So you got to imagine here you got to put the scene in your mind that this closed area where everyone prayed some Muslim city, everyone was doing gemba everyone knew each other. And if there was a strange face today in our place, you would see dust on his beard.
He would see dirty clothes, because this is a traveler coming in.
you know, hotel in Medina, that you know he checked in his hotel inadequate shower and he's come there's no Airbnb. So have you rented out his house on
some way and this guy came in and when the inadequate shower and came to the masjid? No. So this is phase trauma that
we don't know him and you see this, he says pristine white clothes, amazing beard. No one has seen him before. And no one from amongst us know who this person is. This is what
we don't see on him the signs of travel.
That's who we immediately we see travel signs on the visitor tomorrow. All right, so we don't see the sign of travel on him. So someone from amongst us must know him and how is him and allowed him to freshen himself up before coming in. But Omar says Well, I mean, and no one from amongst us, you this person. All right, what does he do? What does he do?
Now before that jabril Allahi. Salah used to sometimes come resembling a companion called the LLB right? He used to come and resemble this particular company.
But we learn from this hadith that sometimes gibreel would come not resembling anybody, because if he resembles the savvy, then the Sahaba would have said, we saw someone who looked like the here Odisha into the gathering. And he came and he did this with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam but he said no, this person no one from amongst us knew him, which means jabril came in the shape of a man but not resembling anyone that also have a new so he came as you maybe we call them freshmen I don't know you know you new new new year comes in the new students have arrived. Right? The new students have questions that the other guys we know this but we wouldn't ask these questions right?
So the new student comes in, what does this companion do?
The student the student comes and he enters the gathering and he walks to the front of the gathering
He sits on his knees, right? He sits on his knees and he plays his knees as close as possible to the needs of the Prophet sallallahu Fastnet, so the knees were touching, if not touching very close. So he was sitting as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was.
So some of our machines,
if we sit on the floor and they sit on the floor, sometimes sometimes it's not suitable because of cameras now, etc, etc. But if you go to some private lessons, where there's no cameras, etc, I've seen this from our teachers, that we will put a chair for them, and we'd be sitting on the floor and the teacher will sit on the floor.
Because it's either you get chairs for everyone besides you can't use it on the floor to resemble that this heady that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was set and gibreel set the way he was set. So he really nice was close to the knees of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, while back cafe, he is a he's a and he will put his hands his palms on his thighs. Now, there's two interpretations of this because of the pronoun his who does it report his meaning gibreel or his meaning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So some scholars have said that jabril sat down with his knees closer to the prophet and put his hands on the eyes of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi
wasallam. But I think the stronger view is jabril sat down and he faced the size on his own. But that seems more appropriate in terms of the relationship between the teacher and the student. And we don't have any other narrations from the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where the Sahaba had the Sahaba they had a norm of sitting, where their students placed their hands on their thighs or they placed their hands on the teacher side, right? So we don't have anything to contradict our understanding that in our norm, we would find this a bit awkward. So perhaps the stronger opinion is gibreel sat exactly how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sitting and
then after this
he asked his question, now you know the scholars say Subhana Allah that what jabril did coming smart smelling nice looking fresh looking like he came to learn the way he sat in front of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the way he
you know he handled himself You know, he didn't come there and sit like lying down on his back some people in the masjid you see them hands up the back chilling out legs Mashallah pointing towards the ship or in the table as direction the chef is sitting in front of the machine is sitting like this much on like the on the beach in Hawaii All that's missing is this pina colada whatever you want to call it. This is not the way to seek knowledge.
He sat in the other he sat with it with with etickets
Some people say no you know my back so unless you teach the lesson where do you find the students at the edge of the massage all on the walls? Everyone is fighting for place on the wall as if this is props of land and it's got value in auction somebody is auctioning everyone is yeah my place my place my place. And we used to go study we used to ask the students Booker's places in the front and even then there was a fifth ruling on that that public places are open to everybody there's no right no one has a right to it this morning. I was asked that she has you know, you guys have been sitting on the table by the window overseeing the sea and now the sisters want to sit there so they felt
that you know the machine will get angry. So can you just speak to them and let them know that you know will you be upset
Of course we'll be happy we'll be happy for you to sit there and enjoy what we've been enjoying seeing the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the sunrise because the fifth ruling is public space no one has a right to except the person who comes first right so we will sometimes have a student a booking your place you know put put put up put yours My book please put it there today if we have to go places Mashallah on the wall. But if the magic was built in a way where the walls were cross the support then everyone we have listened our message. Now we can every sub has a wall system
the scholars say when you come looking like you want to seek your own this assist the teaching teaching and I spoke about this to you guys yesterday. Excel as you know, it's a no the teacher comes as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
I said I want to repeat
it's a good man especially if someone greets you, which is a pseudonym, it's compulsory for you to respond.
I don't know if you know that. You studying adapt. learn this lesson. to greet a student to respond is compulsory.
We therefore need to be creating a high up accent Amina
as Allah says, if you are greeted with a greeting for Hey you you have to respond to it in a manner equal to the greeting received or you beat the greeting received, which means if someone says Salaam wa de Kumara
matola is not enough to say Why do you come Salah? You simple. You have to equal that greeting. You have to say why alikum salam wa Taala or even better wailuku salam Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh and if someone greets you and says Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh you have to respond in wailuku salam rahmatullah wa barakato.
I'm not saying the audience doesn't respond, but they lack knowledge of this etiquette because the chef says assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Or he is wanting to Salam and the rest. Why? Because after all, the instructor walakum salam, the other three quarters, stopped at Warhammer two lakhs and only the last bit, the minority completed the stuff.
If you show the chef or the teacher that you want to learn, the chef will be more ready to teach.
And I remember my chef, Chef, God had a chef, Allah teaching us this when he taught us this heavy
discard about other elements. And some of the scholars have told us this as a chef, who is the Minister of power in in Saudi for many years, from the most amazing scholars of our time. But because of his position, he can teach that much. But really, his lessons are absolutely amazing. And he comes from that school of thought were from as well it was a very, because from the other chef.
positioning, and the winner of this family is when the kids are young, they sit in halaqa.
So he grew up as a small boy, memorizing Mattoon memorizing the small books of Islam, the different sciences and upgrading and upgrading sitting with probably some of his family members who are also because it's either She needs a family of scholars, right? They have their traditionally known scholarship in the family across the generations. So the learning curve is so he comes from the School of God. And he says this, that I will teach you, some of our teachers would say that if you don't come to the lesson showing that you want to learn, the scholars would answer you with a minimalist,
minimalist type of approach, you get the least that you are, you know, we talk about minimum viable product. Well, that's there's so they've done the heck with a violin about to do more. But to handle the some of the times we would go to our teachers with such and such excitement. And we would ask a question, and our teacher would answer 10 questions that we didn't even think about.
And we developed as a result, they gave us books that we can go to to further our knowledge to Panama, we didn't realize they told us the books that they were reading and the ships that they benefited from then we went through those books. And sometimes we you end up knowing more than you're teaching you all because you had a wt
o because you are adept with your teacher. So this is part one of the Heidi gibreel coming as a student as a student rather than sisters. Look after the etiquettes of seeking knowledge. Transformation requires due diligence requires process not cash not being casual.
From the due diligence,
is reading your notes before you come revising yesterday's work, right, right. writing down your questions, framing your questions well, so you don't waste the teachers time and the teacher understands your question immediately. We spoke about this in earlier set settings. And also from due diligence is looking at the park dressing well, ensuring that you had that sleep to come you've come fresh, you're ready to learn.
And some of our scholars would say that the knowledge of Islam, if you give it all of you, it will give you some of it.
What do you think will happen if you only give it some of
May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding we're going to take a short break brother Bible guide us through it just to ensure that we
take care of the camera, memory card and so on and so forth and then we'll continue inshallah
