Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dear brothers and sisters, and welcome to another episode.

00:01:16--> 00:01:25

In our series provisions for the hereafter or a summary of the book provisions for the hereafter Mustafa was admired by

00:01:27--> 00:01:35

even Hamad bin Abdul Wahab Rahim Allah, and he was obviously the one who summarize the book but the book was originally written by

00:01:37--> 00:01:38

him or him a whole lot.

00:01:40--> 00:01:48

This is lesson 16, lesson 16. Since the beginning of that Alma add

00:01:49--> 00:02:07

towards the beginning of this year, and we're All praise belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala for bringing us thus far. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to preserve us in his obedience, and preserve us in his obedience and allow us to progress. And inshallah, once we get through this book, we ask Allah to bless us with

00:02:09--> 00:02:13

a chance to study another book together with the lay dad.

00:02:14--> 00:02:18

Obviously, the learning outcomes of this particular series is clear.

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

And at the moment, we're traveling through

00:02:23--> 00:02:36

a lot of key matters. And given that the learning objectives of this course does not involve analyzing these differences of opinion, we skipping through them but rather taking

00:02:37--> 00:02:39

benefit from them and becoming enlightened.

00:02:42--> 00:02:51

Okay, now, in our previous setting, we started talking about how to do more and select to read and the salary during

00:02:52--> 00:02:53

the, the,

00:02:54--> 00:03:06

you know, during drought or during an Eclipse and so on and so forth. And we were just, you know, doing a run through what we had read from the text.

00:03:07--> 00:03:20

And I think we managed to complete all the level matters pertaining to Salatu. Juma before before the end of meaning matters pertaining to the the blessings

00:03:22--> 00:03:29

and virtues of the day of tomorrow, the day of Juma and this was before

00:03:30--> 00:03:33

the end of last week, last week's session

00:03:35--> 00:03:39

in terms of the notes very quickly, my dear brothers and sisters, then

00:03:41--> 00:03:57

if you open your page 67 your page 67. Then the headings cited by or, or that you find in the text regarding the narration of it, but it's hack rahimullah

00:03:59--> 00:04:09

describing the first sermon, which was sort of last Allahu alayhi wa sallam delivered according to Abu Salah even after a man then the scholars Rahmatullah era him.

00:04:13--> 00:04:36

They say that this nation has has weakness. They say that this nation has weakness. So it's just important to note for your own selves, that the nation does have weakness in it due to a break in the chain of narrators. Right. And this study is done by the scholars of Hadith, obviously, and the reason why you find greetings to Hadith is because

00:04:39--> 00:04:43

after the passing away of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam. And after the era of

00:04:45--> 00:04:47

the whole of Russia, Dune

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

and the transfer of the Muslim Empire or the Islamic caliphate to Iraq. What happened was in Iraq, this tendency

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

And also after the spread of the Sahaba, from Medina to other parts

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

of the world.

00:05:06--> 00:05:43

A trend started coming about by people who, who lacked religiosity to actually fabricate narrations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So this is what, this is what started to happen, right? So it wasn't that, you know, at the time of this habit of the Allahu anhu murmuring, people doubted what a narrator would say. And obviously, as long as somebody is so happy saying the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said this, then they've heard from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the Sahaba all trustworthy. Yes, at the time of Abubakar and Norma and and,

00:05:45--> 00:05:48

you know, at the time of the Sahaba, after the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:05:49--> 00:05:51

The archaea reports that

00:05:53--> 00:05:55

some of the companions would,

00:05:56--> 00:06:30

you know, either ask a companion to bring someone else who can vouch that that Hadith was said by the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam, not in the in the sense of doubting the narrator or the hobby, but just to ensure that the wordings are correct, there's no mistakes that you know it. It is as was narrated. And so we find Barbara Viola when he used to request somebody else to come and vouch for the narration.

00:06:31--> 00:06:46

The same thing with Abu Bakar or Viola horn, It is reported that earlier of their level, it used to make the make the notary to take a custom that to swear by Allah that, you know, he heard like this from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right. So

00:06:51--> 00:06:56

these, you know, these processes were in place from the time of the Sahaba robiola but not

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

you know,

00:06:59--> 00:07:19

not based on on the need that we find later on later on. There was an actual need because a trend came about right, where people started fabricating things about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, and attributing narrations to him when he never even said it. And as you know, brothers and sisters this year they have narrations, right?

00:07:20--> 00:07:52

You know, the, you know, the Hawaii bridge, they have their own narrations. So everybody, all these misguided texts that started coming about they also had narrations. But you know, it can't be that they all have narrations and they Some are misguided and some are guided. The reality is where did these narrations come from? So attend from the Scarlet came about which was some molinara genicam that you need to now tell us where you heard this hadith from. So this now at this trend did come about because of need and necessity is not the same as it was at the time of Allah.

00:07:53--> 00:07:59

And because this trend came about then a trend from the scholars to gather Hadith also came about

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

a trend from the scholars to also get the Hadith also came about otherwise, at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the narrations were not gathered. In fact, at the beginning the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbade them from writing his Sunnah because he didn't wanted me to become mixed up with the Quran. Right? But then later on, he allowed it when that fear was reduced. And it wasn't even done in a systematic way. It wasn't done as a cohesive communal effort people get started writing for their own benefit.

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

And even at the time of the Sahaba

00:08:34--> 00:08:44

right, there wasn't a conscious effort together, the sooner the Quran was was gathered, right because of the death of a lot of love during the Battle of Yama, and we know that

00:08:45--> 00:08:48

Allah when he Allah blessed him with that insight and he went to

00:08:49--> 00:08:58

Abu Bakr Omar and said, Look, we need to do something for the Quran because we've lost a lot of love. And then abubaker was was was not very

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

comfortable with the idea saying that how can we actually, you know, do something that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam didn't do, right. But

00:09:12--> 00:09:38

he kept on going back and revising the matter with boubakeur until allow open data for work and then I will put a panel together and that panel, and from the outset, he engaged even Fabien, robiola horn. And even they had issues he says, How can we do this when the Prophet didn't do it? So Allahu Allahu wa sallam until abubaker continue to speak to Zaid until this heart was open and in the process began in earnest. Right. So at the time of this habit, the Quran was gathered.

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

Moving on to the era of the temporary as well, yes, you know, there were efforts but not efforts in earnest, as we find in the era of the acrobatic tabbing. Right. Because of because of serious need. So efforts in earnest now began the Sahaba were spread across the earth. They had

00:10:00--> 00:10:28

spread across the region. They had their students with them. Right? They had their students with them so they students heard from them. So now what would happen is someone would actually travel to different places to meet the students of the Sahara, and take the narrations from them, and gather as much of the Sun of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that they could this happen in earnest. And then a critical study now began because it will be this person heard it from this person who heard it from this person who heard it from this person.

00:10:29--> 00:10:39

So now they will check that Okay, did these two people in the chain actually meet? Did they live at the same time? at the same place? Could they have actually met?

00:10:40--> 00:10:56

So this is why we say you know, it has, we could say it has some weaknesses, it why because it could be a case where there's two people in the chain, who are Oh, and then the narration says that this person had it from this person or the chain states that this person had it from that person but they never even met.

00:10:57--> 00:10:57

Right?

00:10:58--> 00:11:41

Or, to be more particular, they couldn't have met because the scholars also differ in terms of the intensity in in grading Howdy. So some stipulate that they must have met, like emammal Bukhari Rahim, Allah right, some say that it's enough for us to know that they could have met, like a Muslim Rahmatullahi. Right. And that's why I say al Bukhari is considered even more authentic because the the rule the conditions before had these those placing those even more stricter, and remember Buhari would make sure that they actually met. Right, he has a precedence to prove that these two actually met. It's not that they could have met, right, and actually had, it's a deep science, but I just

00:11:41--> 00:11:47

want to make it clear to you since we are talking about, you know, an iteration versus another innovation. So the notion on the page that I shed

00:11:49--> 00:11:54

does have some weakness in it and as a scholar, saying, the weakness is there because of

00:11:56--> 00:12:00

doubt in the chain, and the two narrators actually

00:12:01--> 00:12:02

narrating it. However, however,

00:12:04--> 00:12:05

the meaning the meaning,

00:12:07--> 00:12:28

the meaning in the narration, we add we find in other nations as well, right, so the statements of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, or much of the statements. In this particular situation we find in other authentic narrations of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And that's why an Imam such as a Buddha actually placed this text, in, in in,

00:12:30--> 00:13:00

in the notes, okay. And also we must understand that it doesn't mean that I had it has some weakness that it should be discarded. Sometimes I had, it can have weakness, but it can be used, for example, if it's not to do with heroin and heroin, it can be used. So the aroma, Rahim Allah, they discuss when a weak ID can be used, as long as it's not extremely weak and fabricated, it's just weak because of issues. So it's a very meticulous science. You know, it doesn't mean that this is weak that it can't be used, it could be weak.

00:13:01--> 00:13:40

in relativity, two, what is stronger, but it's strong in a relative way to that which is weaker, right? So it is a robust system. It is a robust system that even when we say it's weak, sometimes we mean it's weak in comparison to other nations which is stronger but not weak in that it can't be used. So I hope that makes sense. So please don't misunderstand me when when we say certain relations or we get some relations that we can when you cannot use them, you cannot use them and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. So, this is with regards to the idea of humor if you open your page 71 from it talks about some of the statements of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he

00:13:40--> 00:13:45

would say some better come on a second. So baja Kumar, Masako

00:13:46--> 00:13:47

is

00:13:50--> 00:14:33

these are terminologies used in the Arabic language to warn to actually warn somebody. So sebahagian carries the meaning of mourning, and Masako carries the meaning of evening but when it's placed in this particular format, and style sebahagian on a second, then this was a way of the Arabs to warn people to warn people of an imminent attack by an enemy. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said in his quote bus of Baku, Mo Masako, man he used to say in the seminar, my bad. So these are two statements that have come through that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would say this hook, but that's why today we say My bad. But as for sebahagian, Mama Sackman, as you

00:14:33--> 00:14:36

see on page 71, then this is because

00:14:38--> 00:15:00

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is using a style to warn the people to wake them up from slumber. Right. So this is just a means of addressing a people and he was the leader of the Muslims. And they should also teach us how to speak like a leader that sometimes you need to, you know, it doesn't mean that you're being harsh. If you raise your voice a little as you can see in this direction.

00:15:00--> 00:15:21

It's like as if his eyes would become red. And it's as if he was warning an army. Right? His eyes would become red and he would raise his voice. It doesn't mean you know, somebody raises his voice or her voice, that now they're becoming harsh. And now we need to, you know, start becoming depressed about it. Now, and this is a common trend today, my dear brothers and sisters, you know,

00:15:22--> 00:15:27

today you content anybody, anything you tell anybody, anything, they overthink it, they have a sleepless night about it.

00:15:28--> 00:16:07

Right? At work, you say something, they have a sleepless night about it. In nonprofit work, you say something they have a sleepless night about is like you don't you have to tiptoe around everybody. And this is not conducive. And this is not healthy. Especially for our brothers and sisters in the Dow. It's not healthy. It's not healthy. You know, sometimes we are a victim of our own weaknesses. And in reality, we always a victim of our own weaknesses. Right. So you know, because, you know, we volunteer in the dour and I don't as you always hear me say I don't like to call it volunteering, but investment but we see it as volunteering anyway. And that's how it's famously known. So we

00:16:07--> 00:16:47

volunteering in the Dow so nobody must tell us anything because we're giving from our time. Right? We are given from our money. We are given from our sweat we give him from our efforts. Nobody must tell us anything. And then Okay, nobody must tell you anything. So now describe anything now they say anything if a person just raises his voice a little bit for need, say no. Now this is a problem. No, no, we can't tiptoe over each other you find a brother here and assisted him now they're going they're having a sleepless night. Now the opening the door to shavon to step in. coupon steps in now we have a problem. Why? Because now this person's lacking motivation to be part of this effort.

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

And then in this day and age now what do we do? We want to hold the Dow efa dranzer. We say no we leave we'll go to another organization.

00:16:57--> 00:17:00

Gemma I need to Pamela are servants of Allah. This is

00:17:02--> 00:17:09

you know, when you when you're doing the hour, this is the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is not serving anyone's ego.

00:17:10--> 00:17:42

This is not serving anyone's whims and fancies. You got to toughen up. You got to toughen up. You know if the earliest generations behaved like how we behave this Deen wouldn't have reached us. That's the reality. This Deen wouldn't have reached us. Right? You gotta toughen up. This the son of Allah subhanho wa Taala is that you know, those who intend Allah they get shaken up the most. So it becomes proven and manifest whether whether they are sincere when they say they intend Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:17:44--> 00:17:55

Right. They are sincere when they say they intend Allah subhanho wa Taala or they're just there for the show of it. And yes, if you live with the show of it, when push comes to shove, you will drop out of the race.

00:17:56--> 00:18:33

Right? So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was tested, then brdu salat wa salam before him attested. This is a this is a common thing. This is a common thing. They will call names. They, you know, know how to he said, Look, he was building the ark. They was building the ark and, and they were making fun of him. He was building the ark brothers and sisters, and they were making fun of him. Right? He's here worshipping Allah following a command of Allah. And they calling him the worst of names and describing him as the worst of people. Imagine if we had skin like the skin we have today? What would happen to us? Has, we stopped doing what we're doing. And then we actually just

00:18:33--> 00:19:12

divide for the sake of Allah. Right? Now, we stopped doing what we're doing for the sake of Allah, why? Because this person is being rude and cetera, et cetera. So SharePoint really attacks us from so many angles, he pulls us into a pool of configuration, honestly. And the reason why I'm highlighting this is to experience obviously, you know, given my time in the data and in conflict management and conflict management is going to happen whenever human beings are together or conflict is going to happen whenever human beings are together, right. So in the in different organizations, sometimes in different travels, I, you know, I'm asked to sort of mediate and arbitrate in a in $1

00:19:12--> 00:19:26

effort that I'm not even part of, to help the situation before. And when you take things back to the basics, you find it's a very petty situation. Yes, I'm not saying I'm not saying that, you know, you're not going to get

00:19:27--> 00:19:32

quote unquote, Deadwood in some of the efforts of some of the people right?

00:19:33--> 00:19:43

in the doorway efforts, but we must remember that way is that our at the end of the day, even those who can't pull their weight, it doesn't mean we fire them like the corporate world does. We just fire people.

00:19:45--> 00:19:49

That's the corporate world, we end our right window.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

There has to be a level of ethics, there has to be a level of the hour as well. You got to do that with young people. Right? So if you find them willing or not able then

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

I was making them a book is mentoring them is helping them. That's our

00:20:06--> 00:20:15

that's also the hour. So you don't say, Well this person's dead wood or not pulling up his or her weight. So help us now. Keep them out of the system. No, no, no, no, you don't kick anyone out of dow.

00:20:16--> 00:20:29

Right? I mean, you can find an alternative place for them. Yes, you can reduce the workload, keep them to the basics, the minimum, that's fine. That's absolutely fine.

00:20:30--> 00:20:51

But don't create a situation whereby you you, you do what I call that our burning, that are burning. Now this we can do my dear brothers and sisters. Allah Allah wa salam, if you look at his life, he did everything he was, he was so genuine in this description that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him and in this job role that Allah subhanho wa Taala put him in, in this

00:20:52--> 00:20:57

effort, right? That no one got the hour. But in fact, every time

00:20:58--> 00:21:27

people wanted to do more, he wanted to do more. Now look, I'm not saying, you know, we live in the time of the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam and the Sahaba. But I am saying that it shouldn't be that, you know, it shouldn't be that because we're not living in a time that we can take inspiration from that time. This is another extreme today, when you tell people things, they say, no, we're not living in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam You know, I'm not from the Sahaba and our leadership is not the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam I mean, this is quite condescending, of course, the leadership is not the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and of course, you know, from

00:21:27--> 00:21:49

the Sahaba. So that means we must all give and take and be good to each other and try our best. That's what it means. So coming back to the original point, we are weaknesses of our we are victims of our own weaknesses, right? It doesn't mean if somebody raises their voice that now we should take offense sometimes it's a neat it's a means of motivation is part of leadership. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his eyes would swap. And

00:21:50--> 00:22:07

you know, he's he would he would speak to the people from the member as if he was addressing an army telling them I'm warning you against imminent attack. Yes, imminent attack of shape an imminent attack of your of your house of your desires of your wounds of your fantasies.

00:22:08--> 00:22:51

We all need to be wary of it. Right? summarize, you know, why? Why is he scolding me? No, you should tell me nicely. He should, you know, rub my back. And he should pat my back and say, you know, my dear his brother, but no, we can't be so so Petey, my dear brothers and sisters, right? We need to respect context. We need to respect situations we need to respect circumstances, and we need to apply ourselves, right. If Allah blesses us with people who are trying to raise our standards, we should be ready to raise our standards, and be ready to accept them and be ready to close the door to shine upon from putting evil thoughts in our minds. And by the way, this goes against the son of

00:22:51--> 00:23:16

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when you doubt what your parents telling you and you doubt what your husband tells you, when you doubt what your wife tells you, when you doubt, what your your children tell you, when you you take the west of the two scenarios, somebody advises you, you say, No, they, they they just attacked me. No, they mean that somebody says, you know, it's likely somebody says, you know, brother, it's good to take a bath on Juma is from the center. Say, no. Yeah, this person saying I'm smelling.

00:23:18--> 00:23:28

Right. I'm having a chat with you all today, by the way, right? Because obviously, we trying to take inspiration from, you know, just to bring some context in the 21st century from that which we

00:23:30--> 00:24:07

read from the life of Rasulullah, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam. So today, you tell my brother, it's similar to Batman on a Friday, he'll say no, this person says, I smile. Brother, he's not saying you smile. He's telling you, it's suddenly to bother the Friday. That's what he said. So this whole concept of even putting double meanings to what people think say that no, he must be thinking like this or he must be doing like this. This brothers and sisters is a waste of our time, honestly. And it's from the ploys and plots of SharePoint to busy ourselves with ourselves. Yeah. So you know, the prophets of Allah, Allah said, I'm sick, make excuses for your brother, even if it's 100 excuses,

00:24:07--> 00:24:42

right? So this is very important. This is very important. And, you know, I will lie we live in calculated times, honestly, because today you find everybody just mixing and matching. You know, when you go into the shop, it's mix and match today we mix and match. Right today, if somebody does this, it means he's done that. No, it doesn't mean that, you know, for example, let me explain to you another extreme today if you are working in a data organization, and the reason I'm citing that is because Mashallah, inshallah most of you are from those efforts. today. If you're working in a data organization, and you take somebody to task, they'll say, No, you must have good thoughts in

00:24:42--> 00:25:00

me. So now they use this. Now when it suits you, you start seeing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, You should have good thoughts. Yes, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said have good thoughts but having good thoughts doesn't mean we cannot take each other to task regarding certain things we need to implement and certain things. We have to have

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

achieve. That's how progress happens.

00:25:03--> 00:25:37

Right? So this doesn't mean that raising my voice doesn't mean scolding. Being firm doesn't mean I'm being harsh. Doesn't right. So we got to get on you know, we got to mature ourselves brothers and sisters and I say mature because I think it's just a lack of maturity. It's a lack of maturity when someone's firm we misconstrued for harshness, when someone says this we misconstrued for something else. When someone takes us to task we misconstrued for them having bad thoughts in us. This is a lack of maturity, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam took the Sahaba to task.

00:25:38--> 00:26:01

Right. He told washy, that you know if you could stay away from me because when I see you I remember how my uncle and it makes me sad. That doesn't mean that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam hates the Islam of washi No, he doesn't mean when she came and said I want to accept Islam that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said no, you should go into fire because of you striking a spear through my uncle.

00:26:02--> 00:26:40

During the hardest day of my one of the hardest days of my life, no, he accepted Islam. He was nice too. But he says look, if you could just stay at the back a little bit there's an ICU that does that mean that the Prophet hates wash? You know, he's saying he's saying that when I see you I'm a human being I big I remember him right because I remember him saying this and that makes me sad. You see, so you know perspective idea brothers and sisters perspectives perspective we love people have perspective with us, but we refused our perspective with other people. This is a problem. So we need to mature up. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. So this whole discussion stemmed from how the

00:26:40--> 00:26:43

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would address the companions with

00:26:45--> 00:27:09

you know, appropriately after Juma and then we come to select read and we read much about salata read and very quickly, my dear brothers and sisters, let's try and go through the etiquettes of the day of read. So from the etiquettes of the day of read is firstly, to do so before going out to the prayer this was the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as we find in

00:27:10--> 00:27:40

the generation of Abdullah hepatoma the Allahumma that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to do husar on the day of read the letter before going out to the prayer place in the morning. Right so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it was always the Sunnah to smell good to look good to dress well to you know be clean. And this is a special day and remember nawawi Rahim Allah says that the Muslims were you know that there's a unanimously agree this is a matter agreed upon that is Mr. Have to do a whistle on

00:27:41--> 00:28:09

on the morning of read. And also if we look at the Juma prayer we find that from the Sudanese to do herself as well and this conforms to the overall values of the Sharia why because there's going to be a big gathering and no Muslim should harm the other person in the look in their smell event. So even you know in how people see you if you have the ability for for people's eyes to become cool

00:28:10--> 00:28:16

and serene when they see you You need to dress like that Now I'm not saying sisters you need to make up and you know

00:28:17--> 00:28:22

get in front of the males right saying that no you know we need to make the people's eyes cool. Yes, of course.

00:28:24--> 00:28:30

We need to do that. But no we talking about you know our brothers when they go out to the masjid.

00:28:31--> 00:28:35

Right. So don't don't mistake me brothers and sisters right.

00:28:36--> 00:28:40

As I said, we're having a chat by the way. So feel free to also you know, smile.

00:28:41--> 00:28:49

Sometimes it's difficult when you're speaking to us a blank screen you don't see any people human emotion. May Allah bless you. So

00:28:50--> 00:29:10

you know you're going to be gathering likes on Juma the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam highlights also this doesn't mean wholesale and bathing shouldn't be done on other days. But because Juma because Juma entails a big gathering, it's dressed. The same thing with the deal of read. And this is a consensus between the scholars, also from

00:29:11--> 00:29:15

the etiquettes of the two leads is to eat before going out to pray.

00:29:17--> 00:29:18

When going

00:29:19--> 00:29:44

when we're going for the evil federal Salah, so the read after Ramadan, the read after Ramadan, straight after Ramadan, so it's similar to eat why because now we know fasting on the day of read is impermissible. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sadhana as explained by some of the commentators was to eat so that the day has begun ASAP immediately with a show of gratitude

00:29:45--> 00:29:59

in that a person is not fasting today. And this is you you showing gratitude because you you eating and this is a blessing from Allah. So you rushing to the blessing that Allah has given you a day to eat you immediately eat you rushing instead of you know you you showing that Subhanallah

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

You have realized how much of a blessing food is right? So this is from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and from the sin of the leader, which is the read immediately after alpha

00:30:16--> 00:30:24

in the days of Hajj, then the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was to go out to the prayer and to eat after.

00:30:25--> 00:30:28

So this was the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:30:29--> 00:30:38

on the to your needs. Now remember Ebola is different to legal fetter because it will allow you not practicing compulsory fasts before

00:30:39--> 00:30:59

they eat. And, you know, one of the wisdoms also is that if you do eat after they eat, pray, and after you sacrifice and cook, then you eating from the sacrifice that you just did for the sake of Allah, that's a blessing meal, because you know, you actually slaughtered because Allah loves that you slaughter

00:31:01--> 00:31:13

and you slaughter for the sake of Allah. And in that slaughter is a show of the heat. Because before the Quraysh, and the isolators, they used to slaughter as well, but they used to slaughter for the idols.

00:31:14--> 00:31:54

So, you know, showing to Hades from the greatest impact, right, from the greatest rabbet right. And now you eating from that you have to heat so it's the most appropriate first meal to have on the deal of eat. And let's call this have many scholars have deduced from this that the sacrifice must happen after the Eat, Pray. And also Allah subhanho wa Taala says in his book for suddenly the erotica when her and the scholars of some of the scholars of the Sierra have commentated on this particular idea and they say Allah says for suddenly, erotica, this refers to regal 100. And then the sacrifice that happens after read.

00:31:55--> 00:32:35

So Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah mentions it in order as per the you know, as as also was the practice of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so some scholars have said that if the sacrifice happens before they eat, pray, you have to redo the sacrifice. And this is important for those brothers and sisters who sacrifice outside of the country. Right? So you send your money across to the Indian subcontinent or to Africa, to Sudan or other countries. For the sacrifice, you should advise them to sacrifice it on the second day, or very, perhaps, to be safe. In case in case you're they have to come before they have it. And this can happen, this can happen, right?

00:32:35--> 00:32:58

Sometimes, you know, a mood is not seen in a place and so on and so forth. So what happens is, it's the day of read for you, but it's not the day I've read for them. So they sacrifice is only going to be tomorrow and you didn't eat today. All right. So we need to just take take note of this. This is just a side view key point for you to take note of and Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best.

00:33:01--> 00:33:39

And that's it. So when Maddie Krabi, Allahu Allah says that Allah salallahu alayhi wa sallam used, he never used to go out on the morning of April 5, or until he had eaten some dates, of which he would eat an odd number. And this is a Hellboy. So also from the signal of the day of the fifth is when you eat eat and odd number one or three the the norm of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was three and it is nice to have to eat obviously before going out it's not compulsory, it's not going to affect the quality of your eat salads or your day of read. Meaning it's not going to you know invalidate your day of read No, but it's definitely Mr. Habits going to add to the beauty of

00:33:39--> 00:33:40

your data of eight.

00:33:41--> 00:34:18

So is Mr have to eat before going out? To emphasize that it is forbidden to fast on this day, as we have explained over the line and even we would have Rahmatullah highly suggest that the reason for that was to Firstly, as we said, one of the wisdoms was to show how we value food as a virtue from Allah. And one of the other reasons was so that we can quickly dispel any thought of fasting happening on the day of Aden as we know brothers and sisters. Fasting on the day of eat is haram. It's forbidden even for those who have kafala fasts right? expansion fast. So let's say a person has to fast

00:34:19--> 00:34:21

for two months for example,

00:34:22--> 00:34:22

right?

00:34:24--> 00:34:31

They have to fast for two months consecutively with no breaks. If the dry eat comes the allowed to have a break.

00:34:32--> 00:34:35

And that won't affect the consecutive nature.

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

of the fast and let me not say they're allowed to have a break we say they must have a break because not it's not allowed to fast on the days of read and Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah knows best also from the practice is on the day of release to announce the tech be and this is one of the greatest and Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Al Baqarah when he took me to come to LA Allah Maha Kumara Allah come to school.

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

muscles. Well, it took me a day after he speaks about the idea of fasting our muscles. Well, it took me longer. So you must complete the days wanted to come to LA and you then you announced the Tocqueville, the stubby Rafi Ibrahim Ali Salaam, which we discussed in earlier episodes of that. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah, Allah Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah Allah had helped.

00:35:22--> 00:35:33

Right when he took a beat Allah Allah Maha dokumen Allah come to school and Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that this is a means of sugar, a means of thanks, a means of gratitude. Right?

00:35:35--> 00:36:14

So that must happen. And in many communities we find that the student is lacking. So this is something for us to take into consideration My dear brothers and sisters and announced it a bit loud so other people also can take inspiration and learn and engage the practice and Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward you as well. You know, because whoever teaches someone someone good and that someone does it then a lot he was you the same, and Abdullah bin Rama, Rama and Houma and we know how he used to love to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He used to say this out loud on the day of of reading fitrah until the Imam came out to lead the prayers. And, for

00:36:14--> 00:36:19

example, in Saudi Arabia, you hear that we're being played on the loudspeakers until the Imam comes and

00:36:20--> 00:36:33

begins the Salah, because we know on the day of read we have the Salah before the hook, but unlike the day of Juma whereby we have the hook verse before, the Sunnah. So this is just from the differences between the read and the day off jumar

00:36:39--> 00:36:41

now with regards to the tech bill, they are different

00:36:42--> 00:37:21

narrations regarding the takbeer and all these narrations are okay, so sometimes we say we find slight different slightly different variations between a person drink tequila and another this is fine, this is fine. I just want to highlight it because sometimes we find people you know, correcting other people when there's no need to correct anything or what they saying is also from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and also we discussed in previous episodes the importance of having diversity in our record so that our record or our worship or our do our does it become a norm whereby it becomes a subconscious action of the body without any presence of the heart

00:37:21--> 00:37:23

and mind. So the way to

00:37:24--> 00:37:33

combat your worship becoming a subconscious kind of activity is by being diverse, right because when you diversify your thinking,

00:37:34--> 00:38:09

right so for example, if a person always reads well acid in his Sunnah and in our in our culture in his Salah, or her Salah, then what will happen is you'll end up somebody praying salah and subconsciously you will flow through the Salah, not even knowing not even remembering that you you read this, and this is a fact my dear brothers and sisters, this is human nature, right? So be diverse. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was diverse in in many of his car, right even that car of the morning in the evening we have different reports of different things that were said by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was bamboo.

00:38:11--> 00:38:16

Bamboo karela 100 Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah manias lucara Murphy has

00:38:18--> 00:38:19

to be coming shortly,

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

shall remember Allahumma in the Assetto Corsa era, Matthew Juana Juana raha barakato, right. Look, these are three variations, three variations of of that.

00:38:36--> 00:39:00

Right, so we see this time and time again, whoever does a cursory study of the grace of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam time and time again you you come to realize this, that he was very diverse salallahu alayhi wasallam and teaching us to be diverse sometimes he would teach us to seek refuge in Allah by saying out to be Kalamata hytera Mati missionary Mahara. In other times, you will tell a secret meeting Allah by saying Bismillahi la de la yoga room as

00:39:02--> 00:39:23

well as summer, what was Samuel ready to seek protection from Blackmagic and an evil eye and so on and so forth? Right, even if the heart is different types of is different. And then from the best of his default alarm Antara de la ilaha illa Kanaka Nirvana until the end of the door so we see what is different. There's a diversity right?

00:39:25--> 00:39:34

to such an extent that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam highlights the best is still even sending salutations upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, right we see diversity.

00:39:36--> 00:39:37

And, you know,

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

you know, we've discussed this even in the earlier episodes of provisions for the hereafter when we looked at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his guidance in terms of his daughter in his ruku and his sujood and so on and so forth. So diversity is important and we should worship Allah by memorizing as many invocations or supplications however you want to call it as we can. That's

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

What we need to do, so that we can engage Allah subhanho wa Taala in one action in different ways, in different ways, right? And and we spoke about, you know, the, the, the tangible benefits from Sunnah and and how Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us diverse ability to worship Him in a sauna that don't worship Allah only standing or only bowing or only prostrating or only sitting and so on and so forth. It's it's a diverse process. Some religions we see them they only worship Allah by standing. Right, somebody sitting we are in Islam, we realize our Salah, you know, it's, it's so amazing, you know, you don't have an opportunity to fall off to sleep. Right? Although Subhanallah

00:40:42--> 00:41:14

some people actually would have to sleep in their cell alarm stack. So, Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us and inspire us to become better. I mean, I mean, you're a brand I mean, so, this is also from the etiquettes of the day it also from the etiquettes My dear brothers and sisters is offering congratulations offering Congratulations, right. So, we you know, we say the Kabbalah minimum income Li except our good deeds from you know, eat Mubarak is another expression, you know,

00:41:16--> 00:41:56

whatever you say that shows you congratulating a person on the day, you know, even if you send them an EAD card, or a WhatsApp message, telegram, message, SMS message and email, eat Greetings, have a blesser to read, and so on and so forth. This is this is fine, this is fine. And this is from the etiquettes of the day of read. This is from you know, this is from the time of this habit of the Allahu anhu and why not this is a day of happiness, study of happiness, right and we can we congratulate each other for witnessing this day because remember, the Muslims they have read, it's not a it's a day of celebration, but the celebration is the worship of Allah. That's how amazing it

00:41:56--> 00:42:11

is. That Allah is showering upon the people at the read masala blessings Subhana Allah rewards are coming from the sky and landing on a people why shouldn't we congratulate each other? So this is important, especially this is substantial.

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

This is a substantial greeting for a substantial date. Right? We find the non Muslims they they greet each other and congratulate each other on a date of no substance. When we talk about Christmas, for example, what's the establishment about and it's appropriate to speak about it now because you know in December and just yesterday was December the 25th. Right so everyone is saying Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas. They saying Merry Christmas, but they probably haven't worshipped allow even raise their hands for Allah knows how long

00:42:44--> 00:43:01

but on the you know, on the day of Christmas, they say Merry Christmas, right? And without us getting into the details of when he said he Salam was born and so on and so forth. And and the whole issue of celebrating birthdays in the first place. You know, this year is a strange year as well. Because this year you have

00:43:02--> 00:43:17

the birth of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the birth day or approximate birth date of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam coincide In the same month, in fact, within a few days of what the Christians say is the birth date of

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

any Salah.

00:43:21--> 00:43:21

All right.

00:43:23--> 00:43:35

All right. So, you know, there's a lot of discussion on social media, I'm getting a lot of messages about this particular matter about the molad. And, and so on and so forth.

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

You know, so Muslims really are tested, even when there's no need to be tested. You know, this is, this is the state that he's in right now.

00:43:46--> 00:43:57

You know, that we are actually becoming confused about things that we don't even need to be confused about. Honestly, yesterday, a question was sent to me.

00:43:58--> 00:43:59

And I'm not joking.

00:44:00--> 00:44:05

Laugh if you want, but I'm not joking. A question was sent to me saying,

00:44:06--> 00:44:12

what is the ruling of Salah behind a center? Who has a bit?

00:44:14--> 00:44:32

This, this is the question that came to me. Right. So any, I mean, look, we're not trying to be judgmental on the question or the circumstance. I don't know that the circumstance was though, you know, but let's say a person was actually behaving as a center celebrating the delivery denied or salata when he was going to break,

00:44:33--> 00:44:49

celebrating the day of Christmas, and I was delighted when he was going to leave the Muslim prayer. Right, this, these, these are circumstances, these are happenings. The oma is tested with things that don't have to be tested about what I'm trying to say is common sense is no more common

00:44:50--> 00:44:53

things which you never imagined happen now.

00:44:55--> 00:45:00

Really, where, you know, and you know, I've done my team, just a few

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

Two days ago saying, Chef, what does Kumbaya mean? Right? I'm doing it because of the machine and I had a discussion about, you know, this Kumbaya moments coming into the Muslim Ummah, everyone wants to any, you know, we all want to live happy, happy, no rules we should live like we engender when we're not even in gender. You know, everything should go every belief system should go right should be wrong and wrong should be right and nobody should have an issue with it. This is what we mean by by, you know, living in a Kumbaya. I hope that helps.

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

I hope you got the definition now.

00:45:32--> 00:45:33

So

00:45:35--> 00:45:41

I think somebody is microphones switched on, by the way. So you know, what I'm saying brothers and sisters is

00:45:42--> 00:45:52

the oma is doing stuff that no one would would dream of before. So questions come about, you know, naturally, naturally. Right. So

00:45:54--> 00:46:22

how did we digress into this particular discussion? But nonetheless, what are we saying brothers and sisters, we're talking about congratulating each other? Yes. So, you know, even now, for example, one of the biggest questions on on the Muslim mind now is or the ruling of saying Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas. Can we say Merry Christmas to other people? Some people say no, Chef, you know, they say to us eat Mubarak. Right? And that doesn't make them Muslim. So can we say Merry Christmas to them? Oh, that shouldn't be an issue in terms of our email. Look,

00:46:23--> 00:46:28

that's true. We shouldn't be judging people's Eman for saying Merry Christmas. But we say that look.

00:46:29--> 00:46:31

At the end of the day, we must recognize that

00:46:33--> 00:46:36

you know, the system or the day

00:46:37--> 00:46:58

is not void of what they call Jesus Christ. And Christ died for their sins and Christ being the Savior and Christ being God, and so on and so forth. Right. So if somebody says Merry Christmas, and you living in a Muslim minority, then an appropriate and appropriate answer to them would be, may God bless you. And you intend guidance?

00:46:59--> 00:47:44

Right? Why would you why, you know, we always say we need to be the best to people. How is a Muslim? How can a Muslim be the best to a non Muslim? By making dua for the guidance? Not by celebrating misguidance with them or acknowledging them as guidance and endorsing them as guidance? Right? So look, I'm not I'm not trying to say that, you know, we should become tricky. And have you pokers, you know, I'm saying, say, may God bless you and be genuine. This is you genuinely wanting goodness for this person. Who, who is showing excitement. And this is how we as Muslims, as Muslims, we are a people who are good for the America believing a man that is believing. We want goodness for them.

00:47:45--> 00:48:23

Right? So, you know, what, when somebody tells me, why can't I say, Merry Christmas, even though I don't believe in it, I tell them you can't say because this is not this is not from excellence. It's not from excellence. If you really want to think about it, you're outside of the theological realm of discussion, then this is not from you being excellent with another human being. If you want to be excellent with another human being you make draft for them. That's why you shouldn't say Merry Christmas, rather, you should say, Well, fuck Allah. May Allah bless you. And you intend by that middle. I bless you with guidance. Right? So this is this is not from you being hypocritical with

00:48:23--> 00:48:27

them, this is from you, went from you being a Muslim,

00:48:29--> 00:48:30

from you being a Muslim.

00:48:31--> 00:48:51

Right. So again, sometimes repetition throws us into a maze. And we think that no, you know, we living in difficult times, and we can stop. So we don't mean, they say it will bark to us. Why don't we just say Merry Christmas to them, we say, Look, don't justify mediocrity, as a Muslim excellence is the minimum requirement.

00:48:52--> 00:49:29

And excellence should be your motto. throughout every dealing in your life, even when you deal with a person who says Merry Christmas to you, if you're going to be excellent say, may God bless you. Right? That way you take yourself out of the whole discussion of whether it's allowed to say Merry Christmas or not. And also you are you you're a true champion of the people and of the community. That's what it is. So, you know, we need a paradigm shift. Brothers and sisters, you know, say, you know, because at the end of the day, even if we take the discussion out of the theological realm, you don't actually be excellent to somebody else telling them Merry Christmas, rather you being

00:49:29--> 00:49:42

excellent to them when you say May God bless you, and you intend by it, guidance. But anyway, this discussion is happening because we're talking about expressing congratulations on the day of read and this is definitely a permissible matter.

00:49:43--> 00:50:00

In Islam, also from the from the etiquettes of the day of read brothers and sisters is to adorn oneself with the best of clothing with the best of smells for the males, and also for the females. As long as they're not going to go out into the presence of males. Then we

00:50:00--> 00:50:05

should do so for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did so and the Sahaba after him did so as well.

00:50:06--> 00:50:30

The son of Abraham or the Allahu and Houma. He states that his father or mother took a brocade cloak that was for sale in the market and brought it to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam and said, O Messenger of Allah, buy this and adorn yourself with it for it, and for receiving the delegations and the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to him, rather This is the address of the one who has no share of piety or reward for

00:50:33--> 00:51:11

the hereafter. Now, don't be confused by the narration because the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam agreed with Omar on the idea of adorning oneself However, he just denounced him choosing a clock. And the reason why he denounced him for choosing that cloak was because it was made of silk. So the scholars refer to him they explained that he wasn't the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never denounced adorning yourself. rather he denounced adorning yourself with Haram, like wearing silk. Right? And we learn from this, my dear brothers and sisters, that it doesn't mean that it's the day that now heroin becomes hella. And this is important, right? Some people, you know,

00:51:11--> 00:51:33

Subhanallah they don't and this is not a joke as well. This is not a joke. You can laugh, but this is true. In one city in the world. Today, you find on the day of read, women kissing men who are not even related. They come out of the masjid and they hug each other and they kiss each other as other non Muslims meet. And when I said Where did this practice come from? This is no it's e d.

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

e de

00:51:39--> 00:51:45

la, de da de halaal became heroin became heroin. No brothers and sisters. So

00:51:46--> 00:52:05

again, just understand that this narration here is a critical narration in teaching us that it doesn't mean that it's the deal of read that Haram is going to become Helen souk is forbidden for a male to ever sort of lasala who it was Adam did not wear it. He did not wear it Okay, it's read Hamas lets

00:52:07--> 00:52:11

you know, let's let's practice, you know that today the ruling is is

00:52:13--> 00:52:37

suspended no brothers and sisters right. So we we learn from this that there should be no harm done on it. And that's why even in celebrating read, it shouldn't be that now we start mixing, right women who are not in hijab by in front of men, we sit on the same dining room table or lunchtime to a lunch table or breakfast table and everybody is laughing and sharing jokes and teasing each other. This is these are from the cultures which the Sherry I came to abrogate because the Sherry I came to preach modesty

00:52:38--> 00:53:03

right? So you find somebody else's wife dressed up in you know, so dressed up with her makeup and her perfume and her special expensive dress and the hair is curled. And however they do it and she's sitting in front of somebody else's husband and freely engaging in an act. Why? Because no this is my brother in law. This is my cousin and this is the day and the days family day and family demons Yama, Kumbaya.

00:53:06--> 00:53:09

Kumbaya is is a famous word of the title of my team.

00:53:10--> 00:53:30

I'm just saying it because we have a machine in class and you can see the big smile He's given us well, we'll keep you smiling at me. So we must understand my dear brothers and sisters that we must look after the Shetty Owl and that he can you can have a day of read which becomes a day of your jahannam becoming, you know,

00:53:31--> 00:53:48

better prepared for you a lot of mistakes. We need to live our life in this world in a way that we better prepare our paradise to receive us. So this is very, very important, my dear brothers and sisters is very important. Allah subhanho wa Taala guide us. I mean,

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

Jabir ibn Abdullah, Ravi Allah and he states that

00:53:55--> 00:54:37

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had a clock, which he would wear on the to eat and on Friday, right, so this to this, and this is how the scholars look at the different reports and how they come up with conclusions. And this is how they've understood that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was it rebuking herbal hubub rhodiola why one for attending him to or requesting that he adorns himself on the day of eat because at the end of the day, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did have a sin of wearing special clothing on the day of read. And also from the etiquettes of eat, as we know, oh as we have heard, is going to eat prayer via one route and coming back via

00:54:37--> 00:55:00

another route. And the scholars say that the reason for this one of the wisdoms behind this is so that much of the earth will bear witness to our piety on the day of care. When you go to the masjid the US becomes a witness to it. So if you use different parts, then more parts of the earth become a witness for you on the day of tm and that's why you should

00:55:00--> 00:55:20

Trying to doctors even when you go to the masjid, for any other prayer, try and you know depending on your time and ability try and and and vary the way you get there so much of the earth of Allah subhanho wa Taala can be a witness to your piety on the theorem and Allah He this life is all about, you know,

00:55:22--> 00:55:50

having a better deal of this life is all about having a better time in the grave. This life is all about having a better portion of Paradise, right. So, this is, this is an amazing practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Some of the scholars said that, you know, changing routes going and coming also was in order to manifest the symbols of Islam on both routes or to manifest the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala, which would entail Dawa to

00:55:51--> 00:56:06

the non Muslims living in that in that area, right. So no doubt you know, if you go to read using a particular path, you're going to meet poor people that you won't meet on the way back if you take another path. So this gives you a chance to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala more also

00:56:07--> 00:56:31

going to the masjid will allow people who are not Muslims to see you going to the masjid and coming back via another path will allow other non Muslims to see you that didn't see you when you are going to the masjid so it becomes a means of the hour as well. And Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah knows best. So these are some of the etiquettes brothers and sisters from the from from the days of either hamdulillah Allah blessed as to complete.

00:56:33--> 00:57:11

You know, the days of read of the last Islamic calendar, which was not so long ago. And look, we already in the review. Oh, well, just now we were talking about the first 10 days of the ledger. Right. And now we are discussing, you know, matters pertaining to the birthday of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam because we interviewed forget about that we we almost in the middle of nowhere, which means that Amazon is just around the corner, the next raid is coming. And this is how life is one Lucha brothers and sisters the days fly. The days fly the flying like somehow the clouds fly. And you can remember what you did two Fridays ago as if it was yesterday, Friday.

00:57:12--> 00:57:20

Honestly, that's how fresh that's how fresh. The events from two weeks ago are in our mind.

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

Right?

00:57:23--> 00:57:24

It says if it was yesterday.

00:57:26--> 00:58:04

It says if it was yesterday, and this is from the minus signs of the day of day, I have no doubt was the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said via takanobu summit, that he spoke about the coming together of the coming together off of time. And this is the coming together of time where you don't feel your minutes, an hour goes like, you know, 20 minutes honestly, right now we've been in our third class for an hour and honestly, I feel like it's 20 minutes. I'm sure you feel the same. And that's why the only thing we can do to help ourselves is ensure that we revive every second to the best of our ability and I and I use the word revives. I don't use the word spend the way of of the

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

of other systems is to spend time doing things. Now a Muslim doesn't spend time doing things. Muslim invest time doing things. How by reviving time, reviving seconds. So about investment. It's not about spending

00:58:19--> 00:58:25

money brothers and sisters unless you're spending it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah

00:58:28--> 00:58:30

knows best, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah

00:58:31--> 00:58:44

knows best. Okay, so if we just open our books again, and we go through the chapter of read, which starts on page 73, it says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would go out using an analyzer.

00:58:46--> 00:59:09

And an analyzer refers to a small stick, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam would carry, right, and he would place this atomizer in the ground and then pray in front of it. So it would act as a sutra. And a sutra is is like a blockage that you place in front of you when you pray, so that people don't walk in front of you. So I just wanted to make that point clear in case it was missed.

00:59:10--> 00:59:48

When we went to or when we discuss the ruling, one of the other things My dear brothers and sisters, regarding the day of readings, as you can see from your notes that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went to a plane land, or what we know as an EGA, right, which is a land with no buildings around it. So it is to, you know, and the Muslims would gather them pray this lead solder. So this is from the sadhana. However, if you live in countries whereby, you know, there's a lot of rain and soft sand and so on and so forth, and it's more practical to be in the masjid and this is fine, then this is fine. Then if we go to page 76, we have the Salah of the eclipse, and we learned from this

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

prayer, how sort of Lawson Allahu alayhi wa sallam would engage Allah subhanho wa Taala in every circumstance, in every circumstance, he would engage Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

Today we will this world phenomenons you know super analyze if it's

01:00:05--> 01:00:11

Yes, it's a matter of interest but the last thing we remember when a world phenomenon happens is I must have had a heart attack.

01:00:13--> 01:00:19

I mean, ask yourself the last time you saw an earthquake and you falling into the trap, begging Allah subhanho wa Taala to protect you from that.

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

Or you saw an accident

01:00:24--> 01:00:25

or a hurricane

01:00:26--> 01:00:30

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forget about why he would engage Allah in Salah.

01:00:31--> 01:00:34

He would engage Allah in Salah.

01:00:35--> 01:00:43

This is the Muslim Ummah, my dear brothers and sisters. We are beneficial to everyone around us. When was the last time you raised your hands and asked a lot for a

01:00:44--> 01:00:51

prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would engage Allah for rain in dedicated dry and dedicated Salah.

01:00:54--> 01:00:58

Right and we need to we need to use this you know when I told you once upon a time that studying

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

is

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

Eman, boosting.

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

It's even boosting when you study. If you study the right way and ponder I mean it's one way to read that okay, when it rains this word the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did it this is how he how he did it.

01:01:16--> 01:01:23

But it's another thing to ask yourself, why did Allah established this? And why is this the way of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

01:01:25--> 01:01:32

This is where the development process begins. When you dive into purpose, and you understand why

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

we don't look at things at face value.

01:01:36--> 01:01:43

Right? You don't look at things at face value. We're talking about purpose My dear brothers and sisters purpose.

01:01:45--> 01:01:58

Right so why did the Prophet he engages Allah and in the best way that Allah loves to be engaged in that is Sarah. Today we have exams. The last thing we do forget about, you know, making two units of prayer asking Allah to assist us we don't even make draft.

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

In fact, we tell everybody else to make dua.

01:02:03--> 01:02:09

Right? Well, we we can see the old situation today how many of us engage Allah subhanho wa Taala.

01:02:11--> 01:02:11

So

01:02:13--> 01:02:18

we need to take from these chapters related to how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to engage allegedly difficulty,

01:02:20--> 01:02:34

how we need to develop ourselves and engage Allah subhanho wa Taala, especially during difficulty, this doesn't mean we only know a lot during difficulty now, but especially during difficulty, we have a conference that we running, there's a course that's happening at the weekend.

01:02:37--> 01:02:39

There's, you know,

01:02:41--> 01:03:01

there's different things happen. You know, for example, we have, there's a dour effort happening at the weekend in cage Allah subhanho wa Taala and engaging in your Salah, in your sujood ask Allah beg from Allah in your Tisha hood, back from Allah. Right? This should be our way shouldn't be that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the last thing you think about.

01:03:02--> 01:03:12

Right? And, you know, once it happens, just to show you a practical example of how sometimes we become we fall into oblivion, once

01:03:14--> 01:03:18

during a hedge one of the groups that you know, you have these difficult

01:03:19--> 01:03:45

the group leads, they have extreme difficulty as well as look after passports look after transport, look, after hotel matters, look after this look after that. So, something happened, something didn't go in and go right. And the person was, was stressed out, stressed out, one of the group heads stressed out about batters. And there was a talk going on. So the suggestion was, look, let's go to

01:03:47--> 01:04:06

the talk, and get some guidance. And the person said, No, you know, I have so many things to do I have this, I have this I have that I have that I have this issue of that issue. And the reality was, you know, even with all these issues, right? It could have been done tomorrow. In fact, if you did it now, you probably wouldn't have gotten any way.

01:04:08--> 01:04:12

Right? So it was said to the person, that look,

01:04:13--> 01:04:38

the first person The first being that you need to engage, when you go through difficulties, Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it's better for you to come to this talk, and worship Allah through listen through seeking knowledge, right? And making the right to Allah and then go and deal with whatever issues that you have. Especially since you know you running around now is not going to create much benefit.

01:04:39--> 01:04:59

Right? Does that make sense? But this is I'm trying to explain the practical or situation that a real situation that happened for us to benchmark our circumstances against that sometimes we get caught we get caught up in process, that we forget reality. We forget reality. So you know, to say to this person, come to the talk, then go and meet

01:05:00--> 01:05:20

This person and that person and transferred this out and that are at a time also when it's more conducive to do so. So the first thing you need to do now is remember Allah subhanho wa Taala become attached to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Today when we have exams, we have exams The first thing I need to study No, the first thing is you need to make dua and ask Allah to bless you to study and to make your study process well.

01:05:21--> 01:05:56

Right. The first thing today when we have an issue, we were looking at our context our networks of people know the first thing is you have to engage Allah subhanho wa Taala. At the end of the day, you can study as hard as you want, and you can phone as many people as you want. If Allah doesn't inspire assistance, in your case, you won't be assisted. So I'd love you to be the last thing we we go to my dear brothers and sisters, and also the last Allahu Allahu wa sallam teaches us this in an abstract way from teaching us about Salatin is the SCA, and teaching us about collective kossuth and Salatin and so on and so forth. Right. And Allah subhanho wa Taala had and was best now

01:05:58--> 01:06:17

on page 81. There's the narration that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam supplicated facing towards the fibula and the people did likewise. Then he descended and led them into units of prayer. And without and then and he would read sudo to Allah and sudo to Varsha in the sec in the second unit of prayer.

01:06:19--> 01:06:36

This Hadith has some weakness in it, I'm just writing it for you as an Amana and utrust. However it is a use it is a hadith which the scholars have allowed to be used, because its weakness is not of a severe nature number one and number two, the haidet is not related to halal and haram. And that's why we find scholars.

01:06:38--> 01:06:46

We find the Imams reciting these two sutras and that is fine. On page 82. There's another generation that had veneration of

01:06:48--> 01:06:55

the murghab it right with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allahu Myskina hackday Akuma Abu berberian

01:06:58--> 01:07:06

mirova de O Allah give us water until Abu Baba stands naked and closes up the hole in his middle bed with his Iza

01:07:07--> 01:07:10

this head is my dear brothers and sisters is weak.

01:07:12--> 01:07:18

And it actually goes against that established in stronger narration such as the importance of covering your hour

01:07:20--> 01:07:53

right so it's important to cover your outer so why would Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam make a drive and in that door I say until this person stands up and he's our he's the part of his body which needs to be covered becomes exposed. It's compulsory to cover your our to cover for males from the navel to the knee and the females. The outer is defined as well. Why would the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commanders to cover the earth and then make a duel with your outer can be you know describing the outer as being exposed. So this hadith of

01:07:54--> 01:08:09

Abu Baba or Akuma Abu Baba, this hadith is weak, this hadith is weak and Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah knows best and it's been cited week by many of the other scholars of Hadith as well.

01:08:11--> 01:08:21

And that that brings us to the end of what we had read in sha Allah when we come back to our last class which is next

01:08:22--> 01:08:28

Saturday inshallah as we said, we'll try and put one in an email will come to you all by Wednesday inshallah.

01:08:30--> 01:08:46

And for now for now, let's say that the class is on a only I'm expecting some travel and that's why earlier we said that today would be the last art class but inshallah there's some amendments there and that's why I want us to do another that class so for now, let's say we having as our class brothers and sisters please come in your numbers

01:08:48--> 01:08:53

and if anything, changes, you will be informed by Wednesday

01:08:55--> 01:09:27

or Thursday latest. So from the outset, we are having a class next week Saturday inshallah and when we do, we will begin from page 85, which details the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his guidance during his travels and his acts of worship, there in inshallah. inshallah. Brothers and sisters look if you know of other brothers and sisters who are who are enrolled in the class, please do us a favor and give them a buzz and tell them not to rely on the recordings that we are sending them. But rather, you know, that they should

01:09:28--> 01:09:30

attend the class life.

01:09:32--> 01:09:54

Honestly, it's it's it's a difficult situation and, you know, should we stop sending out recordings and notes? You know, are we spoiling the oma too much? Right? Because it's clear the moment we started sending out recordings, live attendance numbers dropped, the moment we started sending notes with the recordings it dropped even further. The works being done for us.

01:09:55--> 01:10:00

Look, I do know that hundreds are benefiting no doubt about it. But we

01:10:00--> 01:10:14

Talking about life, the life attenders, especially since our partners May, Allah subhanho, wa Taala, bless them have paid sums of money to cater for a larger attendance because that was initially the case that was initially

01:10:15--> 01:10:22

the case, right. And we don't want a case whereby people can't get into the class like we had on the first day people couldn't get into the classroom because

01:10:23--> 01:10:31

the classroom had a limit in terms of the numbers that could come in since then our partners have paid extra money to open up,

01:10:32--> 01:10:52

you know, the numbers that can attend this particular class. So, you know, brothers, brothers and sisters, if you know anyone who is enrolled, please share with them the message, please share with them the message with the light. And as I said, I know hundreds of benefiting because the people are downloading the audio and accessing

01:10:53--> 01:11:15

the notes and so on and so forth. But the point is that never be delayed. Remember, we discussed this, right? The person who pretty solid in the front is not like the person who prays at the back. And the person who attends the live session is going to receive from the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and blessings that the people who listen to the recordings and read the notes afterwards will never receive. This is a fact.

01:11:16--> 01:12:01

This is not this is also a fact. Right? The people who attend live cannot be the same with Allah, as the people who don't attend and catch up afterwards who do cover. So in terms of us being excellent with the people, please also contact those who you know, and tell them that look, attend the class life and don't be delayed. Right Don't be delayed, because those who are delayed will be delayed, right? We know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the people have not continued to delay themselves except that Allah subhanho wa Taala will delay them will make them delayed. Right? Nobody wants to be late on the day of piano you want to be your you know, you want to be in the

01:12:01--> 01:12:05

front lines in terms of those who are lost mercies falling upon you want to be at the back.

01:12:06--> 01:12:22

I think the point is clear. Our time has come to an end my dear brothers and sisters I love you all for the sake of Allah. Everything corrected is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he's perfect in any mistakes or for myself and shavon and I seek Allah subhanho wa Taala does forgiveness mean? I love you all for the sake of Allah brothers and sisters.

01:12:23--> 01:12:48

May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept from us and make this knowledge that we learn evidence for us and not against us and make us especially those who attend the live sessions make us those who are forgiven upon our departure and make us those who hear a good word and follows it. I mean, you're right. I mean, until next time, my dear brothers and sisters Please take care. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Allah wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad wa ala and he was a big money
