are provisions for the hereafter team, I greet you all with the greetings of peace. Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. And from the outset, I welcome you to our session which we will officially call
the first session for our Tuesday session, we titled it an introductory session and that was just a session for us to kick off this particular series and for us to dot the i's and cross the T's with regards to that particular or this particular series. And you know, discuss a little bit about the book and the author and some of the etiquettes for this particular class and just some general advices and thanks, Ollie, Lyle, Hamed and Al Hamdulillah.
The team has sent out to you all a recording of that introductory session and they have published on the sajit omar.com website.
The notes of one of the students may Allah subhanho wa Taala Bless you all so those notes are there for you to access and have a summary and synopsis pertaining to the last class that we did and inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala wills
we will try and ensure that we gather weekly from the students those notes that sort of summarize the class well, and inshallah it will be published as well. But brothers and sisters, none of this means that we should avoid attending the live session, and I want to share with you a hadith in Sahih Muslim reported by Abu hurayrah robiola one which teaches us the importance of attending these live sessions in it he says that also the loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam says much tamako monthy beighton min booty la Italia yet Luna kita La Jolla today rasuna who FEMA Bina whom Illa nessa laterally he was Sakina wash yet whom Rama what have fet homall Mela ek was that Kira Houma la houfy
mentoring, he says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that there is no group of people who come together in a house from the houses of Allah, he has Lula keytab Allah to decide the book of Allah or yet they are asuna houfy mabena home and so that they can learn together from the lessons of this book, except that Allah showers them with with with divine gifts. In this hadith we see that Allah showers upon these people four things The first thing is elat nezzer. Literally he was Sakina accepted. Allah causes contentment to behold this gathering will have fed human melodica and Allah causes angels to surround this gathering. We're
here to Mirage and Allah causes this gathering to be engulfed in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
What kind of Humala, human ENDA and Allah praises this gathering, Allah proudly praises this gathering, to the angels that are with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So four gifts for this gathering. Number one, Allah causes contentment to fall on to this particular gathering, to engulf this gathering. And he causes the angels to surround this gathering this live gathering and Allah subhanho wa Taala causes this gathering to become engulfed in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala praises this gathering proudly to the angels that are with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, what we must understand brothers and sisters, is that you know whenever you
are looking for the mercy of Allah
Go and look for the circles of knowledge. Whenever you're looking for peace and contentment in your life, go and look for the circles of knowledge. Whenever you want a lot to be proud of you and praise you proudly go and look for the circles of knowledge. Whenever you want to sit in a gathering surrounded by angels or you want to be surrounded by angels, go and look for the circles of knowledge Allahu Akbar. This is a mighty Hadith taught to us by the most beloved to Allah, Muhammad Ali Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that is why I reiterate to you try your level best to attend this Saturday sitting because there's great hair in coming together live I know today we live
in the age of of Google and YouTube and clouds and you know, sound clouds and so on and so forth. And and everything Alhamdulillah is recorded. I promised you I will attempt to record these sessions. I am attempting to record today's session as well. But even though this should only be there to complement our ability to learn and be close to the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The reality is that whenever the inheritance is being displayed, you and I should want to be in the front lines, not at the back and not doing cover. We want to be in the front lines and just like Salah, you want to be in the front line, and you want to start the Salah with the
email. So you also want to get to class on time and start the lesson as the teacher starts the lesson Mashallah, as all of you have done today, insha Allah when Allah Hill Hamed So, you know, our love for the inheritance of our beloved sallallahu alayhi wa sallam should push us forward. Now, somebody might say But hold on. The Hadith says, you know, the Hadith speaks about those who come together in a house from the house of Allah. We are not in a Masjid we are, you know, in a virtual classroom. So does do these gifts apply to us? And the answer to that question is yes, ma'am. Show Kenny emember show Kenny, a famous famous scholar, a landed scholar.
And you know, he's not a scholar from the classical scholars from the early centuries of Islam from the latest centuries of Islam, but a mighty scholar, he was a man Michoacana McCullough here and he he says that this hadith is not specific to those gatherings that happen in the masjid only. They this hadith applies to all circles of knowledge, whether they be in a person's home, or whether they be in the masjid. And he goes on to explain that this statement of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam in a house from the houses of Allah is a statement only they are not to exclude any other learning. However, just to exacerbate that the best learnings happen in a Masjid number one, and
number two, that the norm at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was that these lessons would happen in the masjid. And we know that mystery will never we was established to be the fountain of light, and to be the beacon of light that would spread to the four corners of the globe. So also the loss of Allahu alayhi wa sallam established the masjid not just for Salah, but to address the Ummah, the oma then, and the oma now for you know, we are taking lessons now from the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Many of these teachings happened in his message. So the message is not just a piece of prayer, it's the place that is considered the establishment of
Islam. And Mr. community, the biggest decisions should happen there.
People should love to flock their people should love to stay there. So remember show kanniyakumari early, he says that this hadith is only teaching us that at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they used to do it they it doesn't teach us that we only benefit from this hadith if the lesson is in the masjid. It just teaches us that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to prefer his lessons in the masjid and this is where he would conduct his lessons from.
And this is also true, or the science known as jurisprudence methodology is known as the concept of Harada Maharaja Hari Hara Maharaja Talib refers to something that exists in Islamic text in a hadith in an ayah. But it doesn't exist there to exclude any other circumstances, it only exists there to highlight that this was the norm of the time. This was the norm of the time. So this hadith applies to us, or applies to those lessons outside of the massage now, our chef happy the whole lush excited Bonanza chiffre. He went on to to add when he explained this hadith that this hadith is also inclusive, also inclusive of the virtual classroom environment, the environment that you and I are
in right now this virtual classroom environment Alhamdulillah right because in terms of our time
The norm has become that circles of n can happen at a much wider scale, meaning we can have a circle of knowledge with someone sitting in Australia, someone sitting in South America, someone sitting, you know, in Canada, and someone sitting in South Africa, and we can all be in one class. So it's still a circle of knowledge, but technology has allowed it to be a far bigger and more vast circle of knowledge and that is why when we discuss the introductory session at the beginning, I said it's important that we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala propolis that he will Jelena Allah Hydra her and I had a summit a lady let me lead well a new lead. Well, I'm Nicola who Khufu and I had, we praise him
subhanho wa Taala. Why? Because he has blessed us with this technology that can enable us to be in a circle of knowledge from the comfort of our own homes. If you looked at my latest tweet I spoke about Mashallah, how wonderful the weather in Riyadh has been since yesterday and today, there's a cool breeze not too cold, and you know, there's a light drizzle Alhamdulillah and you know, perhaps this is the last, you know, of that sort of coolish weather, especially for this region. Before the dusty, intensive heat of the summer kicks in right now, you can hear my session without any background noise. But very soon you will be listening in brothers and sisters, and you'll be hearing
my air conditioner in the background, cooling the room that I am in so and hamdulillah I can be in my room you can be in your room, we are all in the comfort of our home. But time Allah it is a blessing from Allah that even though we are so far away, even though we are experiencing great comfort, we can still be in a circle of knowledge, experiencing from the great gifts. Enjoying the fact that allies is proud of us is praising us imagine if a if a king praised you. Imagine if a president praised you. Imagine if your headmaster at school praised you imagine if you're the chancellor of a university praised you imagine when a father or mother praises you singled you out
amidst all the siblings in your home, and how special you feel, and how wonderful you feel and how it makes your day. It really makes you happy. It puts a smile on your face. And then imagine the King of kings, the Lord of the worlds Allahu Allah subhanho wa Taala Rockpool and I mean, the Lord of the worlds praising you, and being proud of you, and praising you to His angels, the most purest of creation. And that praise is a means of causing shavon to become even more humiliated, because she upon Chopin did not want anyone from the son of Adam to be praised. So brothers and sisters, Indeed, Allah has chosen us, let us thank Allah. And let us look after the live session attendance
also brothers and sisters just, you know, move, pushing on, I promise to share with you some of the other thoughts that I had during our last session, but time ran out. And I was hoping to present for you all,
some slides about some of the journeys taken by the scholars of Hadith, just to get a hadith. Now, unfortunately, the slides will not have that clarity, or the pictures of the mappings.
Were not of the guarantee for me to produce the slides, but what I will do is I will get brother or sister back here to upload the pictures to the Google Groups, okay, and you can access the pictures there. But I wanted to just went I wanted to look at it. And when you look at it, I want you to just think about Subhanallah how the scholars of Hadith covered so much ground together the son of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and remember the last session that we had was about, you know, the valuable nature of this and that is more valuable than you know.
And, you know, a countless number of gold bricks, it is more valuable than that. And, you know, that is that is why we split we spoke about we need to be patient, we need to adjust ourselves, this realm and the matters of this realm is worth it. It is worth it. So these scholars of Hadith, we're covering ground and inshallah have a look at the maps now, just for your information. Some of them would travel the journey of over a month, over one month, just to get one study, just to get one Headey just because they knew that we have had that so and so in this distant land, in this distant land has something from the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, he has something
valuable. I need to go get it. I need it. I need that in my portfolio. I want to be honored by being a narrator of this hadith. I want to be honored so that I can be in the chain of narrators of this hadith. How are you
Terrible is it to be in a chain that ends with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allahu Akbar. So they would get on their camels get on the amounts. And, you know, gather the Behzad, you know, the the provisions, this is called sad and mad the provisions for the hereafter. And it's called sad because as we said, Imam
Ali, he wrote it on a journey. So he had these provisions for his journey, his food, his water, and so on and so forth. And here, he typed this book said that this is the provisions for the hereafter. We are a journey to Allah, we are the journey to the hereafter. And we need also our provisions. And this book really encompasses the provisions than any traveler to Allah subhanho wa Taala needs Allahu Akbar. And that's why we said it's a book of Syrah, but it's a unique book of Sierra. So they, they would, you know, gather the provisions and start the journey. Now remember, brothers and sisters, they were living at a time that had no telegrams, no faxes, no emails, no technology, no
WhatsApp, no telegram, no Facebook messaging, no Google Groups, right? No Google Chat, no, nothing, no Skype, they didn't have all this technology that could connect one person to the other person at the blink of an eye. So they would mount their mount and start traveling to this person. And after a month, or after two months, so after two and a half months, they would get to this person's place. Excited that finally The time has come, I'm going to get this Heidi,
only to be told that the person passed away. Allahu Akbar,
Allahu Akbar, only to be told that the person passed away. The carrier of the Hadith has passed away.
Now, when this person started his journey
he was told that this person is alive and that's why he got on his journey. But think about it two and a half months, a month. I mean, today one day is too much. How many people do we see in the morning and at night we are praying over their bodies in we are observing select regionals. Right? So they would get to this place after this long travel, tiring travel with sandstorms and the desert heat and the desert cold following the stars navigating the skyline that you know,
only to be told that this person has passed away. And in some cases the person passed away this week, the person passed away a few days ago. Allahu Akbar, what would you and I do? We'd have our hands on our head. We'd probably be crying, probably be complaining. Probably be you know, blaming everybody else blame the the mount that the camera didn't go fast enough. The weather wasn't good enough allowed Mr. And this is how we are today. Right? Remember, we were talking about how we blame our teachers. We judge our teachers, you know, they're not good enough for me. They don't crack enough jokes in the lesson. They don't captivate, captivate, you know, make the lesson captivating
enough and so on and so forth. And but I'm saying brothers and sisters, this is worth it. Right? What would we do if we if we invested so much time just to get one Hadith. Forget a one hour session just to get one Howdy. And we find out that the person passed away will probably come back to our homes and never engage in another journey ever, ever again. But this wasn't the way of the scholars of Hadith, they would praise Allah subhanho wa Taala and make dua that Allah makes them from the people who are raised with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam because a lot looks at our efforts, a lot looks at our intentions where they lie and they were connected to Allah. They lived for Allah,
they did for Allah, they left for Allah. They spoke for Allah, they remain silent for the sake of Allah. Everything they did was for the sake of Allah. They make the lives a work and endowment. They made the lives of work, they gave their lives to Allah subhanho wa Taala they made their life a life that nobody had control of besides Allah subhanho wa Taala they made it a type of work, so they knew that advice, the best of reorders, and advice the best of protectors are in La la la, you Leo mlmrc Nene and Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala does not let the good of those who do good go to waste does not get the rewards of those who do good become last Subhana Allah May Allah gather us with our
scholars in Jannah. May Allah give us from the patience that Allah gave them. May Allah inspire us as Allah subhanho wa Taala inspired them, May Allah give us the character, the same character that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave them May Allah accept from us as he accepted from them. And in yorubaland Amin. So brothers and sisters, I just wanted to share this important point to sort of, you know, cement that which we took in the last session, and inshallah I encourage you to come to these live sessions and listen to the sessions live. May Allah increase our knowledge, I mean, Allah homebirth obtain them.
Dean, when you're allowed, we asked you to grant us the understanding of religion. And we asked you to teach us the meanings of your core and your bill and I mean, my dear brothers and sisters, with that
we will dive into the early matters. The introduction of the book saddle Merritt. Our program schedule says that we're supposed to have a 15 minute break right now but given
the exciting stuff that we did have led us in terms of the technical matters, that Allah
allowed us to face and be patient through a lion Hampton inshallah Yoda does allow me to request you all to please bear with me and let us continue inshallah inshallah.
Just a message to our sister Rubina. I'm not sure if she's if she's here. I noticed that the the session link was set for 60 minutes I'm not sure if the session will expire at 60 minutes or not. If it is going to expire then please drop me a link so I can inform the students
