Upon knowledge and upon evidence, this is what we learn brothers and sisters, and to find the bolts that
your understanding of what I've said, consider how
Islam has made the tool of Islam which to the pen.
The pen is that not a tool, an instrument of education. There is Allah subhanho wa Taala with the tool that instrument of Islam the pen, Allah said allele allameh bill column,
the one who taught by the pen, Allah says New Moon, one will call me warm is
Allah takes a cousin by the pens, by pet by by the pen and what they inscribe into and transcribe
Allahu Akbar. The pen is the tool of Islam. And the pen is a tool of education, an instrument of education, and considered father My dear brothers and sisters here in front of me and those at home.
The fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions the
mercy of him teaching us the Quran
before the mercy of him creating You and I,
Allah subhanho wa Taala says our rough man,
this is one of the Beautiful Names of Allah.
The Most Merciful, right? Or rock man, the perpetually merciful.
What does Allah say, I lemon.
Allah now starts throughout the whole of surah two Rockman Allah mentions his mess is upon us. For those who didn't realize everything after our Rahman Allah is mentioned his mess is upon us. Everything. Read Surah Rahman today
and glorify Allah subhanho wa Taala.
What is the first mercy Allah teaches us? I Level II taught you the Quran before halakha enzyme, it's a message that Allah created us.
But before the mercy of Allah creating as Allah mentions the mercy of Allah teaching us the Quran,
law aka religion of knowledge, religion, based upon the concept of education, of reading, of writing, and then after Allah says Haleakala insam Allah subhanho wa Taala
further consolidates the point by saying, I lemma will buy another concept of education that Allah taught you speech,
education, on one end education on the other hand, in the middle, the fact that Allah created us, so hanabi Allah Subhana Allah, Allah This is the first lesson we learned my dear brothers and sisters, when we look at Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becoming a prophet, and at the same time, the beginning of Revelation, because jabril came, he didn't say a Solomonic home.
This is who I am. How are you feeling today? He came and said it.
The time for being serious has come.
And it starts by being educated. Right? I yesterday as I said, we discussed this point that the right of Islam is to learn. And for us, brothers and sisters to understand how important learning is in Islam if we're not convinced yet. Then let's look at what package Islam has placed for the one who lends sulamani Corolla.
Let's look at the package that Islam has placed for the one who learns You and I, in the dunya we always look at the package when we want to know how good something is, what do we do? We look at the package what's on offer? What's the job package here? Tell me what's the JD the job description? Tell me? What do I get? Right? My doctor, the noble job, why you could they get paid. Look at the perks. You get the respect. You look at the package that comes with it. Right CEO of a company, you look at the package that comes with an Ansel, we say it's noble to be a CEO. It's an honor. Why? Because look at the life of it. Look at the package that comes with it, what packages Islam placed
with regards to seeking knowledge.
What has Islam placed as a package before that, understand brothers and sisters. I was
God has asked me to lie to him say that the first command was that you and I learn about Allah subhanho wa Taala This is another evidence he teaches us why seeking knowledge is from the prime core matters of this religion. Allah subhanho wa Taala said Phantom, Allah Allah Allah Allah sallam,
he is from the three letter roots. I love me, which don't denotes knowledge, find them and know and learn and be educated about what La ilaha illa Allah that is no one was the official besides one Allah. This is the first command. And it will tell you Rahmatullah here and he has an amazing mention about this area. This is a footnote for you. All. Right. He says Rahmatullah era. That's a panela. This was the first command to learn about Allah. Because when the slave learned about Allah, He naturally worshipped Allah.
Because you learned who Allah subhanho wa Taala was. And that's why many times my brothers and sisters asked me how do we increase the horseshoe in our rabada? How do we worship Allah better? How do we improve the quality of our Salah? How do we improve our intention and our Eman? I say to you, my dear brothers and sisters, learn about Allah. Learn about Allah. Learn about Allah using his beautiful names and attributes go and learn about Allah. Like I told you earlier. You learn something new about your spouse, what happened to you naturally, you loved her more will lie the more you learn about Allah, you love Allah more. You're all in Allah subhanho wa Taala grows, the
way you exalt Him grows, the way you praise Him naturally grows, learn about Allah subhanho wa Taala for lm and the hula ilaha illa Allah
in terms of the package,
consider the fact that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in terms of the merits the package that comes to the person the gift, the prize for the one who seeks knowledge when Salah caparica LTV Sufi hearing man, so Halawa will be here for a parallel Jana, the one who treads a path seeking Islamic knowledge. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala will ease his path to gender.
Allah whoever chose a path seeking not any knowledge Islamic knowledge, sal Allahu Allahu BE
iljin Allah will make his path to gender easier. Allahu Akbar. right we're talking about the package right which makes us understand how noble seeking God is. Look at the price.
What are the prices do we have Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about the animals were in the
list of fearing the woman is somewhat woman filled out when he turned v jophiel ma Allahu Akbar. He says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that indeed the knowledgeable person. Everything seeks forgiveness for him. Allah makes everything seek forgiveness for him. Everything on the face of this earth, everything in the skies and even the fish in the oceans. They seek forgiveness for the scholar.
What price would you put on that? My dear brothers and sisters? What price price less? priceless? creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala that you don't know is seeking out forgiveness on your behalf. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, he said, Hi, Rocco Medan, lemon Khurana Voila. The best of you are those who learn the Quran and teach it the best of you want to be the best of the best. The best of you is the one who learns, learns and educates themselves, learns the Quran and teaches it they further expand education. What else? Allah subhanho wa Taala says shahidullah under hula in
one Bella equal to one ka even Bilkis la acaba, Allah says Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala bears testimony, that there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah, and the angels and the people of knowledge
are true to this testimony.
And the upright with regards to this fact that there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah, the angels and the people of knowledge. Allah mentions them in the same sentence. The angels you get mentioned with the angels, what else has Allah Subhana Allah said, teaching us about the importance of seeking knowledge. You're Allah who live in Amman, one levena Oh to learn better Rajat Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah will raise those who have believed and those who are the people of knowledge by degrees
They in A League of Their Own?
And how can they not be brothers and sisters? They have with them the inheritance of the best person to have walked the face of this earth. Imagine if you had with you the most priceless treasure that this world had. How special would you be? Would you be like everybody else? No, you're not. You're a degree above. Why? Because you have something everybody else wants but they don't have right? Imagine you have the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah, the Sahaba
they understood what seeking knowledge was Abu hurayrah the Allah who walks into the markets of Medina and says What is wrong with you people? the inheritance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is being distributed and you are here.
So everybody stopped what they did what they were doing, ran, were
in mercy to nabawi they run to the masjid, they walk in, and they see Quran lessons, and they see Hadith lessons and so on and so forth, meaning lessons of the knowledge with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left behind, they said, Where is it being distributed? He says, Can you not understand the cycles of knowledge here? In the circles of knowledge, this is where the distribution of the wealth of the MBR and he was Salatu was Salam Is
this the prophets of Allah, the messengers of Allah. Lem, you are Renu DNR. And while I do human work,
they never left behind golden silver coins. They left behind something more precious, they left behind knowledge,
and knowledge will always be better than well think about it, think about it. Money, you have to protect, but knowledge protects you.
Wealth when you spend it, it decreases unless you spend it for the sake of Allah. But knowledge when you spend it, it increases. Why not spent knowledge now telling you? How has it increased? You will take it to 100 to hundreds of other people's
knowledge will always be better than well so they left us something even more substantial. Even Abbas radi Allahu Allahu Allah. He says aku Baba Layali Habu La, la, even Abbess. He says, growing my knowledge and increasing my knowledge and learning knowledge is more big during some of the nights is more beloved to me than spending it alive in salah and so on and so forth. Because right, because the more you learn, the better that Salah is going to become.
This is the package brothers and sisters for the one who lands knowledge. And I'm not saying learn
for the sake of it, I'm saying learn for the love of it. Because you love what you learn not because of entertainment and hamdulillah today we live in an age with is the revival there's a revival look at YouTube full Masha Allah in fact I hear the you thing the YouTube checks I said wow man there's a there's a list called the YouTube shares
right? Mashallah there is there everything is being recorded look at this is being recorded is being broadcast to the to the sisters is live streaming online, Masha Allah and inshallah is being recorded. The recordings will be on YouTube, there will be DVDs and mp3 is right there there is a revival knowledge is available the internet at Coronavirus, very does this gonna say it's made something which was so far away so close. Right? There's a revival. But But how many people are learning and that's why I'm trying this point. Don't learn for the sake of it. Don't learn for the entertainment of it. Learn for the love of it, learn learn for the sake of Muhammad sallallahu
alayhi wasallam This is important.
Alhamdulillah there's a revival with the turn of the century. But sadly, there's another strange phenomenon that needs to be dealt with. And that is this concept of fans. fans. The lecturer has fans.
They're quoting the chef
or the student of knowledge. He has fans. People listen to him because of him. Not because of what he says.
This is not learning for the sake of him. This is not learning and you should learn for the sake of Allah. You shouldn't even my teachers used to tell me how to do the Humala. Don't even learn to increase your knowledge. Learn for the sake of Allah and the result of it will be that your knowledge will be increased Allah
I know what they were meaning they're not saying you should not learn for the sake of knowledge, but they're trying to make your intention even more pure for the sake of Allah.
seeking knowledge is worship. Do it for Allah, The net result is knowledge will increase. It's like you have a business. What's the net result of having a business, if you're running properly, you'll have money, you get a profit. It's a result of doing something. Right?
Today, we learning for entertainment, it doesn't matter what the topic is, what matters is the name of the person coming to speak. This is dangerous brothers and sisters. This is dangerous. You see, Mashallah, over there, the thick of food and clothing, you see that?
Can you see that? The topic is bigger than the name of the chef coming to teaching. That's good. And hamdulillah because your heart should be attached to the topic. That's a panela I have an opportunity to learn from the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. learning what he taught us with regards to food and clothing, the etiquettes the morals and manners of of these concepts. I need to be there. I need to be there today. SubhanAllah you see the shacks name being advertised bigger than the topic?
In fact, if there was no topic, but just the chef's name, the venue will be full. him You don't know he might come to sell a car to you.
But that's fine. We came to see him why. A you know, he's got a gift off the gap. You know, we get entertained, you know, the jokes? Yeah, he was Yes, he can do stand up comedy.
stuff, Allah. We're not saying it's the blame of the chef's This is the it's the percent that we saying the problem is how things are being perceived. inshallah Misha is and the students of knowledge don't intend this. They don't intend this. They're just trying to keep things current and keep you engaged. But sometimes, things get lost in translation. People forget why they come in here will lie he you don't want to, you don't want to come and get sins and go back home thinking you got rewards because you left home for the sake of other than Allah subhanho wa Taala because of the hype, there's a hype I need to be there. I love this guy to panela you know very soon who knows you
might go to a talk and see people with lighters
and candles alone mustard
you know we have a speaker comes in and then some of the females are going out of breath.
This is this is this is this is not intended well why this is but this has an aura has a haber has an honor far greater than any human being. Well, I understand this, and no speaker is what he is. Because of him. He is what he is because of what he says. You must remember this. You must remember this. It doesn't matter who you are this body. This personality is what you say. We came here because you learned what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left behind, we are fans of what you're going to say. We are not fans of you or your name or where you come from.
We are fans of what you're going to say. We lose we go out of breath for the knowledge of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam we are so desperate to hear it. This is where I wish this is how it should be brothers and sisters. Understand this.
We losing line of sight
will not protect us well law he is a person who will stand in front of Allah Subhana who at the end of the day.
And Allah will say what did you do? Say I studied? I learned I learned the Quran for you. Allah allows it kept you alive. You did it for other reasons.
And the reason you did it for you
enjoyed them. There's nothing for you here today. May Allah protect us. We all know protect us the speaker first. Two brothers and sisters understand this. You are followers of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam, not sajida not somebody else on the internet. No.
And that's why we're going to discuss this giving due diligence and respect to your local scholars as well. Doesn't matter if they don't have a name to say today we're so fixated on names By Allah, they are people who are unknown, who have more knowledge than the people you know. But because you're so fixated on the name, you've shut your door to a plethora of a plethora of
a plethora of him.
And you know what? This is this is another thing we need to address Subhanallah Our time has come to an end and but this is part of it. Let's let's address it. Let's take it all out. Let's take it all out and get it out there. You know
you need to be people who can be a man boosted yourself. And today Why is it that Subhan Allah, there are so many talks, but so less people who have any man boost they only boosted at the time of the day.
They go home second day third day back to square one.
We need the chef to come back and when he comes back they run to him
like they addicted to him Subhanallah why it's not sustainable for organizations to keep paying Fs for people to come to Australia the quote unquote celebrities who you are fans of to come and tell you to be a man boosted then you Eman booster then they fly back. It's a long travel yeah
it's 14 hours Pamela depending where you're flying from. Right? It's all sustainable. It's like you telling me you know what everyday come and charge my car battery. I'm gonna say that how?
What do you think? Right? We got to be charged up ourselves and you know what I've thought about this brothers and sisters. The way to be substantial is to learn today Subhan Allah we only run to the talks that have the HA HA HA moments and have general nnessee
somebody says Melbourne Medina kita. Eamon from Sohail Buhari share he's coming to teach it how many people will be here now keep in mind that names boring even the names of panela now on you put you you upload the talk you have to think what name now you'll see they'll tell you what name Can you put they put the name this what I spoke about? No, it's not exciting enough people don't watch this.
This is what I get told. This is what I get told. They said What's the name of this topic? I said focus here ah
don't go to focus era by the way I came up with the name
blast from the past as well hamdulillah
I'm not saying get out of pride is a fact as the brothers
right but the thing is I first initially said Fukushima I said no.
It won't work. It won't work. Nobody will come to Sierra boring.
Because people only want to be attached to hype
This is it. You cannot be demand boosted yourself this way. You might if you want to be demand boosted learn solid knowledge, lend solid knowledge. You know the talks that happen general talks in my site? This is not a one hour talk is no see. Someone's giving you advice. How many times you want a person to tell you be a good husband, be a good wife be good with your in laws, mother in law, don't fight with your daughter in law. How many times should we have these talks? Right? How many times should we should you be told to have pushing yourself pushing yourself I have shown you how many times and this is what we keep on coming back to listen to is the same message beaten out of a
different box. When we come back for it. Why? Because this man came to St. Louis is wrong. Ask yourself why am I not substantial? myself? Why am I not motivated myself? You know why? You don't have the tools of being motivated, you have too much naseeha you didn't learn anything. You got to join between the two, you got to learn and you got to you have no say
you have to.
If you learn the tools of motivation, you will be able to motivate yourself.
Come to the tipsy lessons. Even if it's called tafsir come to the Hadith lessons. They also important even if the chef is not known. I'm not saying you shouldn't find out who the chef is in terms of the background of his knowledge. No, but today Subhanallah we must have such a big biography of the chef. What sports he likes, you know? Yeah, people relate to it. And I'm not saying it's wrong. We need to you know, we need to do what we need to do because we're trying to infiltrate the youth. But at the end of the day, this area has a certain haber, which we need to respect.
It has a certain labor, how much can we beat off it? So it's appeases the masses how much right so my brothers and sisters you hear the hundreds of you take it 200 other people Please take it to them. That's the panela guys you know what?
We had something that is food for thought is food for thought you know, I did as a reminder the other day this is what can we call it I call it food for thought. The only food ones allowed to eat when you're fasting because they were fasting.
This is food for thought that you can eat now because it's nighttime or hungry. Food for Thought sometimes we enter a state of hopelessness. It's Oblivion, Oblivion, right? Someone else could have come to this mercy to do this talk. I would expect you to be here I expect you to come and learn. He's a graduate from a place he's got. He's been taught by knowledgeable people. He's got him. I am in love with the inheritance of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. I will go to wherever it comes from. That's what it is. You're not in love with Chef so and so. And student of knowledge so and so and propagate so and so I'm in love with the inheritance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi
wasallam that is what is my that's what drives me. That's what makes me leave my home.
I love him so much. I want to know everything about him and I have an opportunity to learn about him. So let me go
May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the understanding. Now brothers and sisters
to qualify before we close, I'm not saying everyone is now run to Medina while this Melbourne Medina come you welcome. But I'm talking about Medina, the Islamic University of Medina. Right? Many a time we feel that you do something good for Islam. We need to go study Islam deeply. I'm not saying everyone needs to go there. The oma needs doctors, it needs lawyers. It needs everybody, the oma needs it.
Go do that. But what I'm saying is learn what you have to learn. Remember the other day I said knowledge is of two types, knowledge which is for blind, it's compulsory upon every human being.
Every human being to know not just the scholars, and then there's knowledge which is considered for Kenya for Africa is a communal obligation if the scholars learned it's enough.
There's knowledge or the knowledge I'm speaking about is that which you have to know brothers and sisters. The other day we discussed saying touchwood Fingers crossed, this is something you should know you have to know. You have to know you sinful for not knowing and you sinful for not practicing. Where are you going to learn at the feet of the scholars. And then hamdulillah has sent you scholars to community you don't have to go to Medina to learn this. You don't have to invest seven years, you can go become an engineer, but be a well grounded, founded sound engineer.
Be the engineer who is the best we spoke about being the best, the one who the whole world wants to learn from and once the learning from him he has the other from outside of his company, multi billion dollar corporation that has 1000s of people. He has the other hand across the street from a Masjid which he built, Allahu Akbar. And then he goes there to be the Imam and lead the prayer and after that share a reminder and inspire the oma can you not be that of course you can be that you're supposed to invite to what you know.
And you can be an engineer as well and a doctor as well as the oma needs this Loma needs doctors who are the best engineers who are the best policymakers who are the best Norma needs this right? You don't have to become chefs and movies and people who pass fatwah
but what you have to do in your endeavor to be the best professional is learn everything the Sherry I made compulsory upon you to learn you as an individual understand this
and that is why Allah said first let the cream come to military level ask the people of knowledge if you don't know because you have the people of knowledge who know what you don't need to know
and if you need to know you can ask them
that's what it means but you as a Muslim need to know what you have to know five times Salah how to perform Salah what breaks my soul I trade
who would would test people before they went to to into the market? test them for Finance? one on one. Right? test them. Let's see what's the ruling here? What's the ruling there you don't know not pass you can go trade.
Why? You you learn to trade you have to know you have to know matters pertaining to trade. It's compulsory for you to know that you can't say some scholars job and you just gonna wing it. Right as we say today just wing it. You can't wing it. This is the this is Jen and Jana Miyagi. This is your Islam idea, brother and sister. Right. And from this discussion, learn how important our scholars
because as I said, the certain knowledge which is sort of key via that which is a communal obligation, which means if someone from our community went to land, the obligation is lifted. So when you see someone studying Islam, you should kiss their feet. I'm not saying literally, but I'm saying understand who they are. They have lifted a burden of your shoulders, had they not gone, you would be sinful. Everyone would be sinful. But because they went the Forum has been lifted.
They've lifted a mighty load off the community. Have we ever thought about this? No. That's why we disrespect our scholars. We don't know what they've done for us. The moment the student is at the airport, he's going to study Islam.
You should thank him from the bottom of your heart he has done something that has lifted a great obligation of your shoulder
and when he comes back support him or her if she's a female student of knowledge
and hamdulillah he lady Jan if he couldn't leave a karate Minar recently back I mean

you feel in a bikini tabular heater

Liliana come in for tea please.
Welcome in ba limited heydo from Rome and a nurse, one October hatha nasally.
A wise man said praises belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala, who inspired the presence of Scania's during every portion of time.
After every prophet left Allah left behind scholars after them, he had the Runa Mangala Buddha, they invite them as guided people towards guidance. What else we ruined I mean, who am I?
And they are patient upon the harm that the people give them.
online communities they they, they give you trouble when you try and invite them towards Good luck with what Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
They're going to have it in for you. They're going to drive you out. Yes, be ruined. I mean, whom either the patient the scholars are patient with the harm the people give them the fact that they haven't realized that we have helped them. The scholars have helped them the students of knowledge have helped them they've lifted an obligation of them. So the patient with the harm. You hear when I became a tabula eternal Mota, they give life spiritual life with the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. To those who are spiritually dead, or you know, rely
and they give spiritual eyesight to those who are spiritually blind.
For come in 14 in the police in how many people as in has a police cause to become spiritually dead, have their made spiritually alive and revived will come in bond in Colorado and how many misguided people has Allah guided upon the hands of the scholars?
He says, How amazing has the benefit of the scholar been upon the people and how evil has the harm of the people been upon the scholar? I end with this point today My dear brothers and sisters, we have much to discuss tomorrow. So how are we right and the first point the first benefit, Allahu Akbar, when I told you the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is nothing but substantial. You know, I was hoping to finish with you the Mk unpeated Allah knows best if I will. I might need three trips to Australia.
Everything corrected is from Allah subhanho wa Taala he is perfect and all praises belong to Allah for blessing my voice and making it last. I pray that he does so so that we can pray the theme as well together
any mistakes or for myself in SharePoint and I seek Allah subhanho wa Taala His forgiveness. May Allah increase our knowledge with ALLAH forgive our mistakes.
We allow me because people have to hidden sincerity. I mean, may Allah grant us later to Qatar and accept our Ramadan and gather us in January in the same way has gathered us here today. I mean, how the Allahu Allah sallallahu wasallam albaraka Elena Vina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Marine Subhana Allah who will become the Subhana Allah humblebee having the connection to Allah, Allah Allah and that's the federal governor to blue lake wa salam o Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
