Brothers and sisters, tonight's topic is a very important topic for every single Muslim
it is my responsibility as a Muslim.
And it is an obligation of Allah subhanaw taala upon me as a Muslim, that I respect those who carry the knowledge of Islam
and those who are the heirs of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says
in the NBA alemi What are we through DNR on Walla
Walla, Walla Walla and the prophets are messengers Do not leave an inheritance behind. They do not leave any dollars they do not leave any sense they do not live in their homes or they're not live in India not what they leave behind as an inheritance is knowledge.
Why they leave behind as an inheritance is knowledge.
So whoever takes that knowledge is the heir of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Whoever takes that knowledge is the one that had inherited the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says shahidullah home and Isla in Walla Walla, el Mikko
Isla Illa, in the human Ozzy's will Hakeem Allah subhanaw taala clearly stated Napoleonic Karim, the Allah had testified that is now God except Him, the angels and the people of knowledge called mm Bucharest, the others will uphold justice. La ilaha illa Allah says, Hakeem, there is no god except a lot. The Aziz the Hakeem
and Allah subhanho wa Taala also says in the Maya, la mina about the healer, Allah, the indeed those who fear Allah subhanho wa Taala are the scholars. So the scholars are does appear last panel. The scholars are the ones that uphold justice. The scholars are the ones who are the heirs of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And Allah subhanaw taala also says, polyester, we live in Ala Moana, Villa de la Allah, among others equals those who know and those who don't know. So those who are not equal to those who don't know, in the saw of Allah subhanaw taala. They're not equal in the sight of the community. They're not equal. Those who know a lot more superior than
those who do not know, especially when they act upon their knowledge. Those who know have a lot more of a noble position than those who do not know. And Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Yeah, you're Latina, Amano, la Rasulullah will only remain calm all those who believe, obey Allah obey the messenger of Allah and obey the scholars from amongst you, those with authority and those with leadership.
Then the scholar side or the other scholars,
the scholars of Islam, so who is a scholar scholar is someone that carries the knowledge of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. The knowledge of the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at impieties Nation, this knowledge which combines of the Quran and the Sunnah, the Quranic Karim, which is our main and primary source, and the sooner which is the Sunnah of the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the Hadith of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam and those who follow the footsteps of the Sahaba of the alota and those who came after him and those who came after him and they follow the footsteps of the prominent scholars of Islam does he has does
respect and respect the unknown within the Muslim ummah.
And unfortunately, foreign people these days want to undermine the scholars of Islam. They want to undermine the scholars of the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala and undermining the scholars of Islam is undermining the actual religion. Because
when you undermine the scholars of Islam, you're undermining Islam. Now those who are carrying Islam that are the bearers of Islam the carries of Islam when you undermine them, you're undermining your religion. For the Ummah, Maliki says, ln Moody, vilamoura dopamine, aka Dena, the knowledge is Islam knowledge is religion. Be cautious and aware where you get your knowledge from. Be cautious and aware, where you get this Islam from. You need to know exactly where you're getting your knowledge from. And that's why you get your knowledge from the knowledgeable scholars. And what classifies a scholar is someone who studied Islam under other scholars, not someone who read one or two books, or
watched one or two videos, or attended one or two lessons, we are talking about someone who has sat down with the scholars listen to the scholars, the scholars impart their knowledge to him and he sat down with him not one or two months or one or two days, we're talking easier in the past that you'll never ever be recognized as a scholar until you serve and until you sit down with scholars for yeas. Even some of them would not even recognize you in those years as a scholar until you sit down with a scholar for listing is for listing is now someone wants to even claim to be a scholar after he sat down in front of other scholars one or two days or read one or two books and heard one or two
lectures. And now I'm a scholar not only the he even puts himself above the scholars and starts to point the fingers. Other scholars are mostly correct other scholars who even undermine other scholars,
and scholars, someone that sat before scholars and learned from the scholars and the scholars in Parliament and knowledge team and continue to sit with them and learn from them for years. And we're not talking about half an hour, one hour every day we're talking about hours at least half of your day you spend the entire knowledge
these days. What classifies a scholar Imam is someone who goes and studies in Islamic Institute or an Islamic University and they learn the traditional sciences and knowledges such as learning the Arabic grammar learning the Quran, learning the Hadith, learning the masala learning the soul learning the learning the arcada not just learning something about a history of Islam or learning something how to pray and fast. You see before scholars again to recognize Islamic institution, and you have there and you learn Islam and you understand Islam from them and not the event for few months, but you're there for fees. And these days, you gotta Islamic University on the stomach
Institute, and you're there for at least four years. And you spent at least six, seven hours of your day with the scholars and you and you learn and you do a lot of your readings and you research four hours a day before you even recognize to be a chef. Even though four is not even enough for you to go you solve Ireland but you're still a part of Ireland. You are still taller, you are still a knowledge seeker, you are still a knowledge seeker, which is Taliban.
Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in Nepal only Karim, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah will say others equals those who know and those who do not know those who know and those who do not know. And the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, Allah, Allah May Allah Allah RBD carefully Allah at nachum the difference between a scholar and the rest of the people is the difference between me and the rest of people between me and you. So a scholar is held in a very high status. He is the scholar, he is the representative of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he is the heir of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he is the one that's
teaching people their religion and the proper Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, in the law, how am Allah
Allah subhanho wa Taala in Hatton Nam latifi jharia
Luna Allah one luminescent higher, Allah subhanho wa Taala the angels in the heavens
and on earth, even an end in its hole and even the fish in its ocean. They continue seeking Allah subhanaw taala is forgiveness for those who teach people goodness. So you've got the creation of Allah azza wa jal seeking Allah subhanaw taala has forgiven us for the scholars. Allah subhanho wa Taala commands and the problem was
Hamad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam commands that we must respect our scholars respect our scholars of Islam as the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in them and he learned the law. He it gramma the Shabbat in Muslim were Herrmann, Ernie.
He will Jaffe on what drama The sultanahmet said, It is part of the respect they shall Allah subhanho wa Taala that you respect an elderly person and you respect those who had memorized the Quran, the Quran and acted upon them and you respect the leaders who are just unfair. So it is part of the respect to ensure that Allah subhanho wa Taala when you respect a scholar, when you respect an Imam, when you respect a share, when you respect someone of knowledge, it is that respect that you share Allah subhanho wa Taala because there are those who are carrying the knowledge of Allah Subhana Allah Allah has imparted upon them, when I say the knowledge of Allah, the knowledge of
Islam, because no one has the complete knowledge of our lives, our job, whatever we know, is so minimal in comparison to what Allah subhanaw taala knows, but the knowledge of Allah is damned Allah subhanho wa Taala had passed on to us through the prophets and messengers, it is part of that respect. Now you shall also parent
that you shout to the scholars of Islam and you show those who are carrying the knowledge of Islam. And not only that, but the scholars say it is also from Todd v. Misha.
It is also a part of sanctifying and respecting the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala the signs of Allah azza wa jal Delica why may you have them sha Allah in the home into Coco lube, and this is those four and this is for those who respect and admire and respect the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the signs of Allah azza wa jal, it is part of piety. It is part of righteousness. So when you respect the signs of Allah, you respect the rights of Allah, that means you're respecting Allah subhanaw taala and that reflects upon your piety, that respect reflects upon your righteousness, and part of the sons of allies origin is respecting those who are teaching the sons of Allah and the
Part of the source of our lives origin
respecting Allah subhanaw taala is respecting those who are teaching the sons of Allah and those who are teaching you of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
In other words, part of that disrespect to Allah is this is respect. Those who are teaching the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala part of the disrespect our lives Our job is to disrespect those who are teaching you the religion of Allah subhanaw taala and to disrespect those who are imparting the knowledge of Islam to you danika many of them Sha in our life or in the Herman taco kulu those who sanctified and respect the sons of Allah, it is part of piety, part of righteousness.
The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says in the lie that you have to be
in design into zero human and a body.
Top dilemma, Hatha Yoga a Takada nurse Oh Sandra hella, Sulu. First for after we lay the element for Bella Bella the Prophet Mohammed Salalah alayhi wa sallam he says Allah subhanho wa Taala does not match. Allah lot of anodized does not take away or snatch the knowledge from the scholars hearts. But Allah subhanaw taala takes away by the death of the scholars until there is no longer any scholar alive or around so people will start resorting to ignorant people, those ignorant people are misguided. And when they asked when the asked and people asked him questions, they misguide others. So not only that are misguided but when asked them is God others and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam alludes to the loss of Hannah Montana will never take knowledge away from the scholars, but knowledge is lifted when the scholars die. There is no long no longer knowledge and there is no longer genuine and legit knowledge out there until the scholars are dead. When the scholars are dead, there is no longer legit or genuine knowledge. So Allah subhana wa Tada. Allah xojo protects this knowledge with the existence and keeping the scholars alive but when the door and people want to know more about its thermal people want to ask questions and people want their questions to be answered. And fortunately, if there is no longer scholars around, people will start
resorting to ignorant people and as ignorant people not only that are misguided within themselves, but they will misquote others they will miss God others
Allah subhana wa tada Allah azza wa jal in this Hadith, he says, Man either Lee Williams will help whoever declares war on one of my close servants, one of my close servants
will help I had declared war on them and the close servants to Allah subhanho wa Taala earlier and the word one even someone who is close to Allah close servants, Allah subhana wa tada now worships Allah azza wa jal doesn't disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala obeys Allah Xhosa constantly refrains away and keeps away from the Haram That's what you call a power lead. I really I close servant to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah says whoever declares war on my close servant, I have declared war back on them.
I have declared war back on them.
And the scholars as Imam, Abu hanifa He says, if there is any closer to Allah subhana wa tada all the scholars and of the scholars are not the close servants to Allah. Allah doesn't have any close servants. And when you attack a scholar, you're attacking a close servant to Allah and you are declaring war on April 7 to Allah in return your opening Allah subhanho wa Taala to declare war, but
you're opening the platform. You're opening war against the light zone when you open against a servant of Allah subhanaw taala Nicholas servants allies zones, your eye opening?
And let me know. Let me see who's gonna win that war. It's a losing battle for you. There is no way you're gonna win the war against a law, monopoly.
And these days, you've got people who are so low. They've got this courage to attack scholars of Islam and Imams, and continue backbiting the scholars and looking down at the scholars and attacking the scholars and saying the worst things about the scholars, and they forget what the what the heavies had mentioned what this has been the problem.
He says man, ideally when he
will help whoever declares war, or one or more close servants are declared war back on them.
So if you're in that position that's attractive as color, and this color could be one of those close servants the loss of annata that means Yeah, just right now open dissolve.
And you've opened against the law soldier, not against that scholar.
You've opened yourself and you've declared war not only on the scholar, but you've also declared war on Allah subhana wa Taala. And let me see who's gonna win the war. You've got no chance of winning that war. So be faithful of Allah subhanho wa Taala and feel like xojo when you want a backbone scholar or speak about a scholar or put down a scholar, the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
as he says in the Howdy, Dena back boy, one another. So they sent a messenger of Allah and what's backbiting one another this other problem? Mohammed Salalah alayhi wa sallam he says the Crocker hakama chakra is to mention your brother in a way or a form that he dislikes.
This is back boiling. And Mr. Mohammed bin Hambling says, Be aware,
be aware of blackballing the scholars because the flesh of the scholars is poisoned. Which means when you're a poisoned me, you're gonna make yourself ill, you're harming yourself. And same likewise goes to when you speak about scholars, you are bringing harm upon yourself.
You are bringing harm upon yourself when you start backbiting scholars and you start looking at them as scholars and start speaking about the scholars. And Allah subhana wa Tada, you want
to combat back by one another. Do not slander each other do not accuse each other. And these days is becoming so common that we allege and we accuse scholars will always throw allegations and accusations upon the scholars. And we say what's wrong over the scholars and we accused them of things that didn't even exist just for the sake of us looking good in front of our friends. Just for the sake of Asheville feeling a desire maybe we had an issue with that scholar Hmm. And now we just want to tarnish their names and start accusing them of things. That's not even true. How many times he about someone accusing another share of something that's not even true.
And I've been accused and having a paper approachment on the tree 12345 of people saying 12345 Well, that's not true.
And then not only that, but these people start making themselves to believe what they're fabricating or what I'm making up and then they start forcing others to stop believing in the film or
The scholars is poisoned. So when you start boiling, and he's not eating the flesh of the scholars, you are harming yourself.
You're harming yourself. And not only they are harming you Sophia declaring war on Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And not only that you're declaring on our lives origin, you are tarnishing your religion, because when you start tarnishing the scholars or the representatives of this, then you are punishing the entire Dean. Because the scholars are the leaders of this religion, the scholars are the head of Islam. And when you want to start taking them down, you have taken the entire religion down with you.
Even though you might disagree with a scholar and nothing tells you or no one told you not to disagree with a scholar, disagree with a scholar, but you have no rights to go and tarnish their names. You have no rights to undermine them and look down at them. You have no right to speak ill of them and accuse them. Fear Allah subhanho wa Taala, the heirs of the prophets and messengers, the scholars needs the scholars these days and the scholars nowadays. The other is the inheritors of the prophets and the messengers. So when you attack them, in one way or another, you're really attacking the Prophet Allah salatu wa sallam.
Especially when you start accusing them and start fabricating allegations on their scholars, which is very sad. Very sad. And unfortunately, it's becoming widespread. amongst a lot of the young Muslims where they continue attacking scholars and talk about scholars on social media, they talk about this color that's color just because they disagree with a scholar, you have no rights to do that.
You have absolutely no rights to do that. Via Allah subhanho wa Taala because this is tarnishing you and tarnishing your religion.
And if you see something wrong from my scholar, then do what the provider is salatu wa sallam told you to do?
support your brother whether he's an oppressor being oppressed, they say the being an oppressor how do we support him? So the Prophet Allah is allowed to say stop him from his oppression remind them of a large
and a proper a salatu wa sallam says a dino is given
to him or messenger of Allah to Allah by following the book of Allah to the Messenger of Allah by following the teachings of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, Allah imitating Muslim No, I'm not him. And they give no say how to the scholars and the leaders of Islam give them and they'll say how rather than you just going around the back biting them. And then we'll start talking about our Look, everyone is attacking Islam and everyone attacking Muslims and everyone attacking our religion by your from amongst those who are also contributing to the attack of Islam. When you are attacking the scholars, you're also attacking Islam because those are representatives of Islam.
So you are complaining about the major and others attacking Islam by also contributing to the attack? And how many times you see a lot of Muslims are always complaining about the Continuous Attack on Islam and the Muslim community. But then they themselves are the ones who are also contributing to the attack by attacking other scholars and other other Muslim leaders and other imams.
That's very sad. That's wrong. That's not acceptable.
That's not acceptable at all. No one has rights to backboard, the scholars no one has rights to slander the scholars.
But the scholars have rights upon you. They must respect them and admire them.
is one of the greatest scholars from amongst the Sahaba of the alota. I know. And he's to respect the scholars from amongst the Sahaba the ones he grabbed
the camel have been tablet, and they've built up and looked at him. He said, What are you doing? You are pushing and dragging my camel. This is something that someone else does not someone like it says I'm the law of numbers. He says I've been third, Hakka enough Alabama. That's what we've been ordered.
That's all we've been ordered by law as order is messenger to take care of our respect our scholars, this is how we've been ordered. We've been ordered to respect our scholars to take care of our scholars and euro scholar and I need to lower myself and humble myself for the scholars.
Subhana Allah was that respect to the scholars? If we disagree with a scholar these days on mmm straightaway we'll start attacking them tarnishing their names and looking down on them and turning everyone against them and then the Muslim community is under attack but you're also one of those is contributing to this attack. You're not helping the situation.
You're not helping what's really happening there.
For that my brothers and my sisters. It's so important for me as a Muslim
and it is
sponsibility upon me an obligation upon me that I must respect the scholars of Islam regardless how much I agree with them or disagree with him. I must respect them
as well Hassan ignore the core of the allowed, Rahim Allah says, ma kurunegala abishai in for you meet Allahu taala callback. Never ever talk about scholars never ever look down at scholars never ever back back by scholars otherwise Allah subhanho wa Taala
never backed by scholars otherwise allies origin will kill your heart, your heart will become so dead. They don't even feel wiser anymore. And so Pamela, you find those people are so loud. And when it comes to attacking the scholars now so loud when it comes to tarnishing the name of scholars, you find their hearts are dead. They have no respect to anyone, even to the end parents
garnered respect even to themselves. Because if someone respects himself as a Muslim, who would never ever disrespect a scholar,
and again, you could disagree with a scholar or whatever his scholar says, but you have no rights to look down at him and speak ill of him.
And the scholars themselves in the past, and nowadays, they used to disagree. And these days they disagree. But there's always that mutual respect that's always been exchanged by the to
that mutual respect. It's always been exchanged by the two. So my brothers or my sisters is so important for us to keep something in our mind that no matter what we say, or what we we must respect our scholars
admire our scholars, we see them we show them a sign of respect.
And never ever speak bad about them. And if anyone speaks bad about them in problems, we need to admonish them, reprimand them and stop them from this evil action. Because this is destroying Islam.
We need to respect our scholars, we need to admire our scholars, we need to love our scholars, we need to stand by our scholars we need to support our scholars Dr. McDonough.
They are the bearers of Islam.
The carriers of the knowledge of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what courage Does someone have a bravery Someone has to look down at a scholar
or a scholar to backboard, a scholar and accuse a scholar.
A mic all this fabric? accusations of Polo scholar if you really want to please Allah azza wa jal then you come please Allah subhana wa tada by tarnishing the names of those who are upholding the deen of Allah azza wa jal, and as you carry the knowledge of the Laws of Power, now what Allah which is Islam, and as you carry the knowledge of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and those who are calling to Allah Subhana, WA Tada, you have no rights to do them.
You have no rights, but your obligation is that you must respect them, and admire them and show them that sort of respect. Because when you show us call us all of this respect, you are disrespecting yourself, whether you like or not, as Allah Subhana Allah mentions in Napoleonic anymore.
Now from amongst your leaders, and you need to respect them, you need to admire them, you need to show them a sign of respect. So have a look at look at it these days. Muslims are attacking other Muslims,
Muslims attacking other Muslims in the open on Facebook and social media, and emails and even my lectures and via YouTube attacking one another. And I'm upholding Islam, how are you upholding Islam, you're attacking those who are upholding the knowledge under the name of uploading Islam.
You're attacking those who are carrying the knowledge of Islam. under the name of appalling Islam, what kind of an attitude is that? What kind of Islam is that? You told me the problem homosassa except something like that, or kinderen such an action will
never ever sanction this, you will never ever accept.
Attacking those who are caring is knowledge, attacking those who are carrying the LM attacking those who are empowering them to other people attacking those who are teaching other people in the knowledge of Islam. And once again, regardless how much you disagree with them. That's not the way
for you to undermine him and talk about him and turn people against them on a doubler. And so Pamela, some of them even look forward to that moment to say a chef making a mistake so they could attack him. If he brother makes a mistake, you need to be a support. You need to support them and be a support for him. Not to take that as an advantage allow murrayville lips step on him rather than you picking him up.
If it's a scholar, known scholar, that's a responsibility that I have that if my Muslim brother falls, I need to pick him up. Not the
Upon a Monday for malaria Ebola will occur as an opportunity for us to step on them.
And we justify it under the name of Islam when
we justify that I'm doing something to protect Islam. I know.
You're not protecting Islam. you're protecting your ego.
you're protecting your thuggish mentality, you're protecting your stupidity. How is it possible that you justify it? How could even someone justified
to attack a scholar attack on him? How could someone even justify it?
It's not justifiable. There's no way that you could even justify anything to do with a tech a nice color technology.
For the my brothers or my sisters is so important for us to keep in our minds the importance of respecting those who are caring knowledge,
respecting the Allah
respecting those that Allah subhana wa Taala had given him that knowledge. This is knowledge, the most
valuable thing that we have as a Muslim
knowledge is the most valuable thing that we have as Muslims knowledge is the most precious thing that we have. It is the essence of the Prophet Mohammed Salah line instead of left behind, in which I'll ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us from amongst those who listen and hear and act upon when they listen to him. Somehow the Kalam 100, no shadow Allah, Allah, Allah and
