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

00:00:04--> 00:00:06

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

Today, we continue our discourse, our lectures.

00:00:47--> 00:00:52

And we share information we shared information before today we will share information on

00:00:54--> 00:00:56

on who is a Muslim?

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

Why is it important to understand

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

who a Muslim is?

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

And what is the Islam that we follow?

00:01:17--> 00:01:19

Now, there are some people who ask the question.

00:01:23--> 00:01:23

And I

00:01:24--> 00:01:29

venture to say they are slightly misguided when they ask the question.

00:01:30--> 00:01:37

Although one can't blame people for asking such questions today, and that is, what Islam do we follow?

00:01:41--> 00:01:42

Now,

00:01:44--> 00:01:45

this question,

00:01:46--> 00:01:50

is not a question which Muslims ask.

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

This is an imported question.

00:01:56--> 00:01:59

This question is imported from other faiths.

00:02:02--> 00:02:03

And

00:02:04--> 00:02:05

this question

00:02:06--> 00:02:12

is more validly asked, in connection with Christianity, for example.

00:02:14--> 00:02:16

Because in Christianity,

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

although the Bible

00:02:21--> 00:02:22

is the book of the Christians,

00:02:25--> 00:02:29

the problem they have is they there are hundreds of Bibles.

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

And for 2000 years Christians

00:02:36--> 00:02:38

have not yet agreed

00:02:39--> 00:02:41

on which Bible is

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

that Bible which all Christians should follow.

00:02:48--> 00:02:54

We have this ingenious version of the Bible, we have the Catholic version of the Bible. We have so many different versions of the Bible.

00:02:58--> 00:03:04

So it is the Christians who can validly ask the question, which Christianity and which Bible

00:03:09--> 00:03:10

and this question

00:03:12--> 00:03:15

the text, the Christian communities,

00:03:19--> 00:03:22

led to what is called today

00:03:24--> 00:03:27

the separation of state and church

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

because Christians could not agree

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

on one Bible,

00:03:35--> 00:03:36

and one law.

00:03:38--> 00:03:42

They eventually after 10 centuries in Europe after 1000 years of fighting,

00:03:44--> 00:03:48

after 1000 years of war between the Catholic Church and other churches,

00:03:49--> 00:04:00

a war which saw people being burned at the stake, people thrown to the lions, and so forth and so on. Eventually, they decided to disconnect

00:04:03--> 00:04:04

to unattach

00:04:05--> 00:04:06

the state

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

from the church

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

and so we enter Africa have inherited this

00:04:14--> 00:04:22

and the rest of so called the so called democratic world as inherited this and said that we are secular states

00:04:23--> 00:04:27

and therefore the church or the Bible has no room within

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

the democracies of the world.

00:04:34--> 00:04:36

The same can be said for Judaism.

00:04:38--> 00:04:44

The question as to who is a Jew is still today a large very big bone of contention.

00:04:45--> 00:04:53

Are you a Jew and your mother is a Jew? Are you a Jew and your father's a Jew? In fact, in Judaism is not about whether you believe in Judaism. It's about

00:04:54--> 00:04:56

who your mother Your father was.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

In Israel today, the Israeli Jews

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

considered to be a Jew, if he has the common goal of oppressing non Jews, namely the Christian, then Muslims and live in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

00:05:12--> 00:05:18

And of course, today they are, they are Orthodox Jews, and they are Zionist Jews, and they are reformed Jews, and so forth and so on.

00:05:21--> 00:05:34

So, that is the general picture that we have. And of course, amongst Jews there is, there are differences as to whether they should follow the Talmud, or whether they should follow the Torah and so forth and so on.

00:05:37--> 00:05:38

Out of that

00:05:39--> 00:05:41

world of confusion

00:05:42--> 00:05:45

Allah subhanho Tolleson, Mohammed Salah Lovato,

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

Elisa Tuzla

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

a gift

00:05:52--> 00:05:53

to humanity,

00:05:54--> 00:05:56

Lucretia home

00:05:57--> 00:05:58

Manos guru Murthy is

00:06:00--> 00:06:02

a gift to humanity

00:06:04--> 00:06:08

to take them from the darkness of confusion

00:06:10--> 00:06:12

to the light of hedaya.

00:06:13--> 00:06:16

So hello, and we think our last panel

00:06:19--> 00:06:22

and was the levy so solemn came the Quran.

00:06:30--> 00:06:33

Now there are many people today amongst Muslims

00:06:36--> 00:06:38

who say that we don't need

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

the Hadith of the Nabi sallallahu wasallam.

00:06:44--> 00:06:47

There is a website I'm not sure if it's still ongoing,

00:06:49--> 00:06:51

headed by a lady in Cape Town.

00:06:54--> 00:06:56

And I used to receive regular updates

00:06:58--> 00:07:00

about how it is not necessary

00:07:02--> 00:07:05

to follow the ahaadeeth of the NaVi salatu salam

00:07:07--> 00:07:09

and why it is not necessary.

00:07:10--> 00:07:13

And that the only book that is relevant to Muslims is the Quran.

00:07:18--> 00:07:21

And in your lifetime in his lifetime for children,

00:07:22--> 00:07:32

this will be an argument they will say let us get away from all the argumentation about Hadith and so forth and so on. And it has confined ourselves to the Quran.

00:07:38--> 00:07:39

How do we respond to this?

00:07:44--> 00:07:48

In the Muslim of Africa didn't humble Muslim means the collection of Hadith.

00:07:51--> 00:07:54

There is a hadith by the Navy salam, which

00:07:55--> 00:07:57

the meaning is

00:07:58--> 00:08:00

the Navy sasaram said

00:08:01--> 00:08:08

that sense veterans Adam, Allah salatu salam allows for Honduras in the 124,000

00:08:09--> 00:08:10

prophets.

00:08:12--> 00:08:17

prophesy allows you to save 124,000

00:08:18--> 00:08:19

prophets

00:08:22--> 00:08:28

but Allah subhanaw taala only gave a book to 315

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

of them.

00:08:33--> 00:08:50

How many good books 315 out of a total of 124,000 124,000 the Russell amongst those who receive books was 315.

00:08:55--> 00:08:55

Now

00:08:57--> 00:08:58

if the mission

00:08:59--> 00:09:02

and divine objective

00:09:03--> 00:09:09

of sending prophets to the world was for them to deliver a book only

00:09:11--> 00:09:14

then why would books given only to 350

00:09:18--> 00:09:19

What about the wrist?

00:09:20--> 00:09:22

Why do they get books?

00:09:23--> 00:09:30

And if we live in a time in Mohamed Salah Sam didn't get a book, then what would we have done and said

00:09:32--> 00:09:32

What now?

00:09:35--> 00:09:37

So what is the purpose of prophethood?

00:09:41--> 00:09:44

who say many people so Mohammed Salim just bought a book, the Holocaust.

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

Just he was just

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

a conduit.

00:09:50--> 00:09:58

He was just used by Allah to come to bring us the book and that was the end of his mission. No, no, if that was so then allow the given books to all the prophets.

00:10:01--> 00:10:02

For a profit,

00:10:04--> 00:10:05

profits have been sent

00:10:07--> 00:10:18

for themselves to exemplify the message of tawheed in their lives, they had to personally portray

00:10:19--> 00:10:22

the message of La ilaha illa Allah

00:10:24--> 00:10:31

and that is the more important part. Yes, he received revelation and 315 prophets received revelation.

00:10:33--> 00:10:46

But the message also knows to give his that was the revelation comes the messenger. And in Islam, the messenger is just as important as the message

00:10:48--> 00:10:54

that they're sending should not have been any so low on insulin is equal to the message of the poorer

00:10:57--> 00:10:58

no alum will dispute that

00:11:01--> 00:11:07

the sooner authentic of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam

00:11:08--> 00:11:10

is equal to the Koran.

00:11:14--> 00:11:19

And Allah subhanaw taala tells us in the Quran, Allah to Allah

00:11:23--> 00:11:24

to separate

00:11:26--> 00:11:45

Allah says, and be obedient to Allah and be obedient to Allah and His Messenger know, Allah says and be obedient to Allah and be obedient to His Messenger. The same was Allah uses for himself in obedience uses for the Navy Salaam also in the form of obedience.

00:11:47--> 00:11:59

So I said to me, no no ba ba, ba ba ba, ba ba ba. Allah says do you want to believe only in part of the Quran and reject the other part of the

00:12:02--> 00:12:06

intelligence follow? Be obedient to me, you say find that okay.

00:12:07--> 00:12:20

When I was versus DLP, you say well, you know, but bands of Riyadh Mousavi says you know, the Indians of Durban when they speak, they always end the sentence we're back to you know, we're going home but

00:12:21--> 00:12:32

we don't drive into Cape Town but you listen to the football but and we have lots of back Muslims also amongst us everything is back you know, yes, I believe in Allah you know, but when it comes to the Hadith of the Prophet but

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

so

00:12:41--> 00:12:44

we can make a distinction between following

00:12:46--> 00:12:50

the Koran and following the authentic student of Mohammed Salah.

00:12:53--> 00:12:56

And the same holds true for the Quran.

00:12:57--> 00:13:01

And the same holds true for the sunova matassa Let me give you an example

00:13:04--> 00:13:06

of the authenticity of the Quran.

00:13:08--> 00:13:08

Now

00:13:10--> 00:13:17

you and I know that hundreds of 1000s millions of Muslims have memorized the Quran

00:13:18--> 00:13:26

and therefore it would be virtually impossible if not impossible for any person to change anything from the Hola.

00:13:27--> 00:13:34

So in terms of the reading of the Quran will read it the same way we stopped at the same places and so for them

00:13:36--> 00:13:42

but do you know and that of course was revealed to them so something like that jabril came to read the quran

00:13:45--> 00:13:48

quran quran Allah, Allah used to read the Quran

00:13:50--> 00:13:58

but do you know that the Quran was only preserved that only the reading that was preserved?

00:14:00--> 00:14:03

Also the writing was preserved? What do I mean?

00:14:04--> 00:14:14

If you should read the Quran, you will find that the word Salah is written in some thoughts, I leave sought.

00:14:15--> 00:14:16

Lum

00:14:17--> 00:14:22

de Sala now you'd, if I knew it was in the Quran was written

00:14:24--> 00:14:31

like that through the whole for zakkai spoke the calf Alif

00:14:32--> 00:14:34

Tah Medusa

00:14:36--> 00:14:41

Abraham Mashallah majority they would have written the words occur like that from

00:14:43--> 00:14:44

Surah Baqarah up to Surah

00:14:46--> 00:14:50

but you'd be surprised to know that in some places, is spelled

00:14:52--> 00:14:54

that cough Whoa. De

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

Sala is spelled saw love words

00:15:01--> 00:15:06

The Olive is taken away and the wall is written. Now where did this come from?

00:15:09--> 00:15:23

So what does it tell us? It tells you that even the words of the Quran was revealed to the lives of Salah we should write it and when you should write anyway you should write it in word for we should write it and that is also cast in stone that will not change.

00:15:25--> 00:15:26

In

00:15:29--> 00:15:30

Yes,

00:15:37--> 00:15:51

we everything and we will protect it. So, even when it is not only the reading of note even that is why you must be careful when you transcribe the Quran. When you write a verse of the Quran, that you should write it as it was revealed to Muhammad Rasul.

00:15:52--> 00:16:03

So it means that when the Prophet told his scribes have 40 slides to write the Quran, you should tell them do you spell Salah in this way, and in this verse is, it's the same, exactly the same word as exactly the same meaning.

00:16:05--> 00:16:07

But this is part of the Adjust

00:16:09--> 00:16:12

the miraculous nature of this book which allows us

00:16:13--> 00:16:20

the same holds true for the history of the Navy. So Solomon was the only prophet that was born in the light of history.

00:16:21--> 00:16:25

He said he was recorded from the day he was born until the day he died.

00:16:26--> 00:16:27

His

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

words,

00:16:30--> 00:16:33

his actions, was all recorded.

00:16:34--> 00:16:39

So in Islam, you cannot ask the question Who's Quran? It's an absurd question.

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

Because there's only one

00:16:43--> 00:16:49

question you can ask who's Torah whose Bible? But in Islam? That question is an absurd question.

00:16:50--> 00:16:55

Justice used to be an absurd question to ask a Muslim, which Islam Do you follow?

00:16:59--> 00:16:59

So if as soon

00:17:03--> 00:17:12

as an iron chain from the moment that he uttered the words until it was written down, and until it was canonized in Sahaja,

00:17:14--> 00:17:17

it's a marvelous study, intriguing study,

00:17:18--> 00:17:21

an amazing study to see how

00:17:23--> 00:17:31

the Sahaba after then the Tabby rain, recorded the words of the Navy salsola I am not a

00:17:33--> 00:17:34

gnarly man, Hades.

00:17:36--> 00:17:39

But from what I've read, it's an amazing, amazing Jedi.

00:17:42--> 00:17:43

Therefore

00:17:45--> 00:17:49

I find it amazing when an alum

00:17:50--> 00:17:54

quotes a Hadith, which he knows is weak

00:17:58--> 00:18:00

and uses that Hadith

00:18:01--> 00:18:03

to support these claims.

00:18:05--> 00:18:07

And yeah, I'm gonna mention his name.

00:18:09--> 00:18:11

And the book in which he wrote it.

00:18:13--> 00:18:15

There is a book written called

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

yogic unto Sahar.

00:18:20--> 00:18:23

There is a book written by this man called

00:18:25--> 00:18:28

understandings which need to be rectified.

00:18:35--> 00:18:35

I have the book.

00:18:36--> 00:18:39

Many of you have the book, I think it's been translated into English.

00:18:41--> 00:18:43

In this book, this man tries

00:18:45--> 00:18:48

to raise the status of a salon

00:18:53--> 00:19:05

to an extent which is almost impossible to believe. And which goes against the instruction as an ideology Salaam which says do not raise me and praise me, like the Christians do.

00:19:10--> 00:19:18

What he says and what is this man, this man wrote about the prophet and he wanted to speak about the Baraka of the prophets, Allah Salah.

00:19:20--> 00:19:27

the tabernacle is the quality of his shoes and his hay and his whatever.

00:19:30--> 00:19:34

But he talks about the use of the Navy Salah

00:19:36--> 00:19:37

Ali

00:19:39--> 00:19:39

scholar.

00:19:42--> 00:19:47

He says he quote Howdy, howdy so weak, so hello.

00:19:49--> 00:19:51

Heart he said on his own he will fall over.

00:19:53--> 00:19:57

And it's known why why is it known? Because we have the science of honey.

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

We have the honey

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

soon we're behind.

00:20:03--> 00:20:06

So for him to say he didn't know.

00:20:09--> 00:20:09

Not acceptable.

00:20:11--> 00:20:17

So what is he saying? He says, One night the Prophet urinated in a container.

00:20:19--> 00:20:21

And he puts a container under his bed,

00:20:23--> 00:20:25

and a woman by the name of a man.

00:20:27--> 00:20:33

During the night she became thirsty. And she took this URI and she drank the URI of the Navy.

00:20:36--> 00:20:37

And the next bombing

00:20:38--> 00:20:42

she doesn't have is a Sonia Sula. I drag you in.

00:20:48--> 00:20:51

And he says, The Prophet smiled and the Prophet said to her,

00:20:55--> 00:20:56

you will never find elegant

00:20:58--> 00:20:59

Baraka merino wool.

00:21:02--> 00:21:06

Unless man is none other than Allah, we Maliki was here from

00:21:08--> 00:21:15

the mouths of the harm refused to burn him when he died. But he's elevated amongst people all over the world.

00:21:17--> 00:21:18

Can you imagine

00:21:20--> 00:21:30

that this prophet who came to tell us that you read is that is that we cannot pray enough in our clothes, when are you reinforcing? It

00:21:31--> 00:21:41

will punish us in the grave, we did an exchange for marine. He says that is very prophecy to a woman that you will not get elegant because

00:21:44--> 00:21:51

why do they do it? Because they have a certain worldview, that there's a certain

00:21:52--> 00:21:57

idea that they want to give over to people and they won't do anything and everything and

00:22:00--> 00:22:04

anything to support the idea even though even if it's false.

00:22:06--> 00:22:07

Why?

00:22:09--> 00:22:10

Because

00:22:12--> 00:22:13

they feel

00:22:14--> 00:22:22

they think in their minds, that the Quran and the authentic Sundar, Mohammed Salim is not enough for us.

00:22:26--> 00:22:28

No woman came here two weeks ago.

00:22:30--> 00:22:35

Also believing that he's not only a descendant of the Prophet, sometimes they believe they're better than the prophets awesome.

00:22:36--> 00:22:37

He says when he

00:22:39--> 00:22:43

wanted to make Toba, I say to Allah subhanaw taala Can I make

00:22:52--> 00:22:58

an admissions agenda? wavy was committed against

00:23:00--> 00:23:01

this man says

00:23:03--> 00:23:06

How can you insult How's it possible for

00:23:11--> 00:23:12

somebody else to ask?

00:23:13--> 00:23:17

What nonsense and when people hear this they say

00:23:18--> 00:23:20

mahalo swallow.

00:23:22--> 00:23:25

It is because people have created

00:23:27--> 00:23:28

another Deen

00:23:29--> 00:23:31

other religions nobody saw Salam said

00:23:33--> 00:23:34

oh my god

00:23:36--> 00:23:39

my own masabi divided into

00:23:41--> 00:23:43

72 seconds, cologne phenol

00:23:44--> 00:23:48

minifier en la vida, except one

00:23:53--> 00:24:01

mana la he was had, they asked who what what road is there? And he said, what I am on and my Sahaba

00:24:03--> 00:24:03

what I

00:24:06--> 00:24:06

know

00:24:12--> 00:24:13

Juma is the

00:24:15--> 00:24:16

I think to shape

00:24:17--> 00:24:19

the fundamentals of Islam.

00:24:21--> 00:24:24

Because if you know your fundamentals,

00:24:26--> 00:24:29

if the journal is going to come in, he's going to come

00:24:30--> 00:24:36

the job is going to come and the job is going to make the crops grow.

00:24:37--> 00:24:39

And he's going to let it rain

00:24:40--> 00:24:44

and people are because there will be there will be starvation that people will run to him.

00:24:45--> 00:24:57

But you know, your fundamentals will know that this is the job and you will know that you shouldn't follow him. But I mostly model fundamentals he will follow anything that comes along

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

and today he will follow evolution.

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

Well, she said that about equal Let's wait for the next one. Maybe is better. And then we wait for the next one. Like Nabil Brian said, all the sudden that must be Allah and he said, well the sun is going to the moon came he said no, that's

00:25:15--> 00:25:18

so fundamentally you have to know

00:25:21--> 00:25:23

are these people and what is Islam?

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

Now, I said in my very first lecture in the series, I want to repeat that.

00:25:34--> 00:25:36

That every action of men

00:25:37--> 00:25:39

every action that you do, as a Muslim,

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

can fall into one of five categories.

00:25:52--> 00:25:55

These five categories are called Allah.

00:25:56--> 00:25:57

Attack LeafyIsHere.

00:26:03--> 00:26:07

I want you to listen carefully. Forget the Arabic words. I'm just trying to impress you.

00:26:12--> 00:26:13

five categories, you know that

00:26:16--> 00:26:18

some of these are the fall

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

which is what like Salah

00:26:27--> 00:26:28

manduca.

00:26:29--> 00:26:30

So not

00:26:32--> 00:26:33

all it is

00:26:36--> 00:26:38

permissible. Hello.

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

We won't go there.

00:26:42--> 00:26:43

Oh, it is

00:26:46--> 00:26:47

prohibited?

00:26:48--> 00:26:49

Oh, it is one crew

00:26:50--> 00:26:51

disliked frowned upon.

00:26:58--> 00:27:09

So your Salah, aka your heart, everything, every act that you do, you're sleeping, you're walking falls into one of these toxic activities. You're playing soccer and rugby, that's all

00:27:14--> 00:27:15

men it is permissible.

00:27:18--> 00:27:20

If the act falls into these five

00:27:24--> 00:27:31

so when the person comes to you, and he tells you something, you should ask yourself, which category does this fall into?

00:27:32--> 00:27:35

Somebody says you must

00:27:36--> 00:27:39

go and make thicker on a Thursday night.

00:27:40--> 00:27:52

In Nigeria, Sunni in Seventh Avenue, you must do it. You ask yourself the question. As a Muslim you should say, now this man is saying I must do this. In which category of these five?

00:27:53--> 00:27:55

Does it fall into? You have to ask yourself the question.

00:27:57--> 00:28:08

And if it doesn't, you say sorry, pal. That's it. My Dean says if what you command me to do is not in the five categories. Not for me. And where do these five categories come from?

00:28:09--> 00:28:16

The definition of hochwertig li fi is a tabula. It is

00:28:18--> 00:28:20

the command of Allah.

00:28:21--> 00:28:30

Everything in these five categories comes from allows whether it's haram Oba Pharrell, Sunnah, these are all from Allah.

00:28:34--> 00:28:38

So if we celebrate, for example, the birth of the Prophet

00:28:40--> 00:28:47

we ask ourselves, in which category does this celebration for? Oh, you celebrate your own birthday.

00:28:48--> 00:28:50

We ask in which category does this what is?

00:28:52--> 00:28:57

The Prophet Allah says, Allah say the prophets at Mubarak, he says my crew did say

00:28:58--> 00:29:00

so we find it falls in none of these five categories.

00:29:03--> 00:29:07

So where does it Where does it Why didn't Why didn't do so God Allah

00:29:08--> 00:29:09

encouraged and said why

00:29:13--> 00:29:15

not telling you that?

00:29:17--> 00:29:25

This is I'm not condemning it. I'm saying we are now students sitting in a classroom. We're trying to establish

00:29:27--> 00:29:30

whether which category it falls into. You can take anything else.

00:29:33--> 00:29:35

So

00:29:36--> 00:29:37

it's no way

00:29:39--> 00:29:40

so now what

00:29:41--> 00:29:42

so some clever girl comes along.

00:29:44--> 00:29:47

And he says let's create a sixth category.

00:29:49--> 00:29:53

We will create it we human beings, we will make another category

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

to the Sharia, because it can't fit into the Sharia doesn't fit anyway.

00:30:00--> 00:30:14

It's like a nocturnal time too far. But the Narcissus doesn't want to fit you by everything you know, but it doesn't want to fit. So these misguided comments I will create another category parallel to the categories which

00:30:15--> 00:30:21

lay down for us in which we will never go astray. And the causes can be the Buddha.

00:30:26--> 00:30:29

And to confuse the Muslims, I say his his as good as

00:30:34--> 00:30:34

they say.

00:30:38--> 00:30:47

It's important for you to understand what is Peter? Two kinds. One is the Buddha called innovation.

00:30:50--> 00:30:51

In matters of life,

00:30:53--> 00:31:00

for example, this camera is an innovation could not do a deal. This is an innovation, this is innovation.

00:31:02--> 00:31:22

In the linguistic sense, like Suddenly, I remember when I spoke about this on the radio, some character wrote on the website of the voice of the cape and said, Yeah, you know, he drives a white Mercedes, you drive a white camel, you know, that also be done, because he didn't understand what he meant. Then there is data in the D,

00:31:23--> 00:31:37

for example, you want to add something to the dean. So all these additions to the dean that nicely put them all into this big container called Buddha. They said, Well, you know, as Buddha has a good good Buddha

00:31:40--> 00:31:53

so that this is himself from the dean and the creator of their own. So everything they do is as if they start jiving and dancing up and down in the magic praising the Prophet they say this is a good beta

00:31:57--> 00:32:01

for Sharif and make big pots of food for people

00:32:09--> 00:32:11

but they never caught

00:32:12--> 00:32:14

the heartbeat of the nervous system which is

00:32:16--> 00:32:17

in your code.

00:32:20--> 00:32:24

with an emphasis on said, Of innovating in matters of my Dean,

00:32:27--> 00:32:28

I want you

00:32:29--> 00:32:33

to bring innovations in matters of my day of the deed of innovations you can do.

00:32:36--> 00:32:39

To do the word you can do whatever you want to do.

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

Hakuna

00:32:43--> 00:32:49

Matata t bija promises every innovation in my Deen in the deen of Allah is a B diversity innovation

00:32:51--> 00:32:55

and every bit of innovation in the deen

00:32:57--> 00:32:59

is Bala

00:33:01--> 00:33:02

is the law

00:33:05--> 00:33:06

is darkness

00:33:08--> 00:33:10

is misleading.

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

And

00:33:19--> 00:33:29

but because I have a certain worldview as a certain way of the way I look at it, I need people to a claim me and kiss my feet and my hands and my arms.

00:33:30--> 00:33:44

And basically my name in the door so I will do anything to mislead people who say well he looks like an alum. He speaks like an alum. He speaks Arabic He wears a turban. He's got a beard. He was

00:33:48--> 00:33:53

go to the Arab world. And you will see how the Christian Arabs wear the garb of the Adams

00:33:54--> 00:33:56

garden tokens.

00:33:58--> 00:33:59

They speak

00:34:00--> 00:34:05

sometimes in Jordan, I've heard Christian Arabs speak better Arabic than the Muslim Arabs.

00:34:08--> 00:34:09

But does that make them Muslim?

00:34:11--> 00:34:19

Can I go to them to guide me know, what is my duty as a Muslim? I have to know the fundamentals of my faith. That's important.

00:34:22--> 00:34:31

So what is better? Do you think for me to stand in speak to you for three hours trying to justify a bidder or for me to tell you that this is what a learning tool says.

00:34:33--> 00:34:34

These are the five categories

00:34:38--> 00:34:41

which has been laid down and agreed upon by all the

00:34:45--> 00:34:46

people who say that

00:34:50--> 00:34:51

you follow the mother

00:34:53--> 00:34:57

of Shafi Abu hanifa Malik, then you're a Muslim,

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

following as the former Muslim

00:35:01--> 00:35:03

Then there is other elders together it is the Quran.

00:35:05--> 00:35:07

And there's no differences amongst us.

00:35:09--> 00:35:11

The brain is you will

00:35:12--> 00:35:22

be keen to know and the deobandis you'll be also know that these two groups in the indo Pak sub continent has been at loggerheads with each other for hundreds of years.

00:35:24--> 00:35:40

But despite the Burmese and the deobandis, of both Hanafi and when it comes to the law, they use the same authentic books, they follow the same authors, the same people everything yet in practice, they are poles apart, the one condemning the other one.

00:35:45--> 00:35:46

So does a mother make you Muslim?

00:35:49--> 00:35:49

No.

00:35:50--> 00:35:54

Why not? Because the homies in the cafe,

00:35:57--> 00:35:58

go to the mosque.

00:36:01--> 00:36:04

They follow the Hanafi manner to later they follow Abu hanifa.

00:36:06--> 00:36:09

But what is the difference? The difference is in the al Qaeda.

00:36:10--> 00:36:18

The difference between me and a person who claims to be a Muslim is in how he believes in Allah.

00:36:22--> 00:36:29

So we then are commanded to follow the sooner Muhammad Rasul and never will we are called what?

00:36:31--> 00:36:32

What does this mean?

00:36:33--> 00:36:40

What does it mean when somebody says, I am a Muslim? I am part of the sadhana well, Gemma,

00:36:42--> 00:36:47

we know tuna means so now means the words, the deeds,

00:36:48--> 00:36:50

the affirmations of Mohammed Salah

00:36:53--> 00:37:04

which has been recorded and handed down to us in an iron chain of narration from the NaVi saucer of up to this moment in time that I'm standing in front.

00:37:08--> 00:37:09

Jama

00:37:10--> 00:37:16

as a tsunami, the people of the center in JAMA what is Jamar? What is this word Giovanni

00:37:20--> 00:37:27

mm sacani, which is a great Yamani alum, not in the way of our other Yemeni friends.

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

He defines

00:37:33--> 00:37:39

the suit of the Navy solemn as Masada Nabhi mean the helper Minh Colin O'Fallon otaku.

00:37:40--> 00:37:50

He says the sadhana is everything that came from Mohammed Salah excluding the Quran because the Quran didn't come from Mohammed Salah he came from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:37:51--> 00:37:55

and there are no sooner was a woman with a be ordinary Sunnah

00:37:56--> 00:38:01

with tamasic una Bihar wahama Sahaba woman tambien Isla

00:38:03--> 00:38:06

and Allah Suna is first of all the Sahaba

00:38:08--> 00:38:11

then those who followed them until the ref cam

00:38:14--> 00:38:18

and there are no sooner in terms of the Andalusian scholar the famous or even has a

00:38:21--> 00:38:23

he says I have assumed

00:38:24--> 00:38:30

the people who follow the sun as a as a people truth. Woman either home alone

00:38:31--> 00:38:38

and those beside them are the people who follow innovation in the deen of Allah subhana wa

00:38:43--> 00:38:48

The Prophet said Allah Kumar, I command you to stick with a Jabara.

00:38:50--> 00:38:51

What is this Gemma?

00:38:53--> 00:38:54

What is this community?

00:38:57--> 00:38:58

Every master would

00:38:59--> 00:39:01

no matter what you do hear the name his hobby.

00:39:03--> 00:39:14

he interprets the word Yama as follows. He says as Murat the intention the intent of the word Jama used by the Navy the solemn is

00:39:16--> 00:39:19

to remain firm on the truth

00:39:20--> 00:39:29

and to follow the truth when Kalamata mystic bill haka kalila, even if those who claim to truth is only one of you

00:39:31--> 00:39:40

well mahalo focus and even if those who deserve as a sooner no definitely was a hot new default with it. I beanie so Gemma doesn't mean Oh, you must follow what the

00:39:42--> 00:39:48

majority or minority if you follow the similar mama system and you only one person you are the Gemma

00:39:51--> 00:39:57

because Yo mama that is words of old Roger law.

00:39:58--> 00:40:00

So it means it is important

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

For us, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:40:03--> 00:40:17

to know the fundamentals and to weigh up what comes to your mouth to you to your door and to your community to wake up in terms of what the fundamentals are. Why is it that way the Quran and Sunnah yet?

00:40:19--> 00:40:24

We say but we use the word but when it comes for answer, you either are or you're not.

00:40:29--> 00:40:31

And I wanted to say just three minutes that

00:40:33--> 00:40:34

I was going to talk about.

00:40:36--> 00:40:37

Today's a day of freedom.

00:40:38--> 00:40:39

And I was going to just

00:40:40--> 00:40:41

talk a little bit about

00:40:43--> 00:40:44

what this means is a Muslim.

00:40:45--> 00:40:47

And how for Muslims.

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

The word freedom

00:40:51--> 00:40:56

is not is not was God will never be the objective of Islam.

00:40:57--> 00:41:00

Because freedom from what in freedom forward.

00:41:03--> 00:41:18

So what is the foundational pillar of Islam? What is the I mean, we see we got this freedom in this country. But I did a session the other day, they were interviewing people on a rubbish dump in Joburg, and you could hear the pig snorting in the background, people looking for food in the rubbish dump.

00:41:19--> 00:41:23

This is the result of 18 years of so called freedom in this country.

00:41:24--> 00:41:30

Islam says no, Islam says that the foundation of society is justice.

00:41:31--> 00:41:44

When there is justice, everything falls into place. Why? Because Islam says that, when a Muslim says La ilaha illAllah he connects and makes himself a slave of a loss.

00:41:48--> 00:41:54

That is between him and Allah. But his role on this dunya is to establish justice

00:41:59--> 00:42:02

and justice not only for Muslims, but justice for everybody.

00:42:03--> 00:42:05

Justice in your own life in your personal life.

00:42:08--> 00:42:12

look at ourselves razonable buy in Atlanta, Alabama, kita Baba,

00:42:13--> 00:42:27

Leah luminesce. Allah says we have saved the profits. We have sent the books we have seen the scales, for what reason in order to establish justice. And I'll give you some examples of running out of time, just a few examples

00:42:32--> 00:42:36

of the justice and educate of Islam.

00:42:39--> 00:42:42

There was a sahabas names for the family, a man, a man.

00:42:43--> 00:43:08

He was going to Medina just before the Battle of butter. He was leaving MCC and going to Medina and he met Abu Jamal on the way and Abu Jamal said to him, I'm not going to let you go to Medina unless you promise me that you will not join Mohammed salatu salam in any words that he will fight with us. So

00:43:09--> 00:43:12

they fit Okay, I give you my promise.

00:43:13--> 00:43:18

So when was Eva came to Medina because the Prophet needed every able bodied men.

00:43:19--> 00:43:34

You will only harmony 330 he needed every man. But when I say to him, but I promise a butcher Prophet said you keep your promise, then participate keep your promise. This was the justice of Muhammad imagine that pain was a

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

mushrik.

00:43:37--> 00:43:38

An enemy of the left but

00:43:39--> 00:43:42

a contract was made a promises made in the promises to be kept.

00:43:45--> 00:43:47

During the reign of Amara mahatama de la

00:43:48--> 00:43:49

Renta former

00:43:51--> 00:44:29

the Muslim army was in Palestine. And the Muslim army was protecting the people of Palestine. The non Muslim is the Christians. And these they miss Christians and Jews used to pay a stipend or a sum of money to the Muslim army to protect them. After paying the money over to the to the Muslim army. Omar instructed the army to go to Syria there was a need for them. So now the Muslim army collected the money from the Christians and the Jews. And now because they live in they were not able to protect it. What do you think they did? They went to the Christians and Muslims said we sorry we took your money but we have to leave now. No.

00:44:31--> 00:44:37

They read they gave the money back to the Christians and the Muslims. This was the justice of Islam.

00:44:38--> 00:44:45

And there was no there was no prophet amongst them to tell them to do this. They learn this from the Quran and the Sunnah Mohamed salah

00:44:47--> 00:44:55

and finally on to tell you a story much closer to much near in history, but a great scholar of the indo Pak sub continent

00:44:59--> 00:44:59

his name was

00:45:01--> 00:45:08

molar roster of Alexandria I'm sure people of you know him, great scholar. He had the issue of no children.

00:45:09--> 00:45:11

He had a nephew that he adopted

00:45:12--> 00:45:19

and made his nephew Salif. In other words, his successor he loved his nephew very much. But not only

00:45:21--> 00:45:24

was mole Ashraf was a very stern man

00:45:26--> 00:45:40

firm on justice not only firm on Quran and Sunnah no firm on the principles of justice. So this halifa visas nephew of his his that he appointed to be is

00:45:43--> 00:45:49

what is the word successor, lived in dakka dakka is the capital of

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

of

00:45:52--> 00:46:07

Bangla Bangladesh and Maulana Ashraf lived in the Punjab, which is the waste waste of waste in India. And the journey by train is three days between Taka and Punjab.

00:46:09--> 00:46:28

So, the halifa came, the nephew of Ashraf Nasha came by train and he brought his son with him his son was now and those days you could travel by half, you know, again also up to the age of traffic cut by half. So his son was 11 going for 12.

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

So I bought him a ticket.

00:46:32--> 00:46:36

So when he came to the Punjab, I asked him, so

00:46:39--> 00:46:41

what ticket Did you buy for your son? He said, Well,

00:46:43--> 00:46:44

I bought him half tickets.

00:46:46--> 00:46:52

But so Manasa city but you knew that he's byrdcliffe birthday was going to come while you are on the train journey.

00:46:54--> 00:47:01

You knew that your son's birthday is going to be working the three days that you are going to be on the train.

00:47:03--> 00:47:05

You should have bought him a full ticket.

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

And what did he do?

00:47:09--> 00:47:23

He banned him for 10 years it removed his his successorship from him and for 10 years he said you'll be out in the wilderness you come back after 10 years. I will reinstate you correct your manners, your etiquette, your sense of justice and then you come back to

00:47:27--> 00:47:47

Mohammed Salah was in there physically to tell him to do this but he learned us how do we learn this by reading the history of this great man Muhammad Allah and by reading the Quran and understanding the Quran yeah you will Latina Amano Kanako Amina bill will test shoddily Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:47:48--> 00:47:54

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah says, Oh you people who believe the standard bearers for justice,

00:47:56--> 00:47:58

even if you be against yourselves,

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

or your family,

00:48:02--> 00:48:33

or those nearest to you, whether they're rich or poor, for low olavi Allah is best to look after your poor family and your rich family, but your duty is to speak up and stand up for justice. So in a society in the community, where there is justice, there is also freedom, but in a society where there is freedom, no justice, there is nothing there is only oppression and suffering. allows for handler says in the Hadith codici Yeah, buddy in the heartland

00:48:36--> 00:48:39

I have made oppression haram upon myself, watch out.

00:48:40--> 00:48:50

Watch out to binaca Mohan Rahman and I have made it haram between you injustice, otherwise my prohibited amongst Muslims, and between Muslims and other other people.

00:48:53--> 00:48:56

So what is the foundation? That is not the word either

00:48:57--> 00:49:02

is one of the names of our laws. Freedom is a name of our laws. But either

00:49:03--> 00:49:07

justice is one of those beautiful names. And

00:49:09--> 00:49:09

finally,

00:49:13--> 00:49:17

you know, Arabic is a is is a wonderful language, it's

00:49:20--> 00:49:24

it's a beautiful language not because it is beautiful, because it sounds beautiful.

00:49:26--> 00:49:35

But every little every word has so many meanings. And is there so many meanings can be derived from us now. avillez got three letters,

00:49:36--> 00:49:52

meaning justice. For those who are the average age the combine of two words, two words. Idle plus idle. I can well you can hear the word idle. And either either let's go a full time agent has got a lot to do. And what

00:49:54--> 00:49:56

is World War damas whoo

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

whoo means what is it

00:50:02--> 00:50:03

But there is also a word called wonder

00:50:05--> 00:50:15

whether on top of the world, the same word, the word means to take, although the other means, what do you mean the water with which you take the

00:50:16--> 00:50:21

same word. Now this is the Arabic language, this ability to create

00:50:22--> 00:50:27

one little mark on top changes the meaning of the word now

00:50:28--> 00:50:41

means if you have a donkey or a camel carrying something, you will carry it with something hanging on the side at some angle and it has to be equal.

00:50:42--> 00:50:48

Otherwise the donkey will be, you won't walk properly. So this is called idle. And that's what it's called idle.

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

This way this idle and that, and if you put the two together, it is idle. What does it mean? It means that most imbalances

00:51:01--> 00:51:05

Muslims are in imbalance, incomplete balances out life

00:51:07--> 00:51:11

balancing worth the rights of himself or the rights of others.

00:51:14--> 00:51:31

So May Allah was founded inshallah I will next week continue with this topic of justice. I think it's an important topic, there's so many issues around the deal under this. So I've shared this with you today. I've shared with you some of the fundamentals of Islam. I've shared with you some of

00:51:32--> 00:51:37

the perspectives that other people have. I've shared with you

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

the five

00:51:42--> 00:51:50

categories in which all actions fall and I've shared with you the creation of a new category called beta. And I've shared with you what the prophets have said about that.

00:51:53--> 00:51:55

It is for you to go home to go back.

00:51:57--> 00:51:58

To ask your family,

00:52:00--> 00:52:01

for your share for your mom

00:52:03--> 00:52:04

to engage with it.

00:52:07--> 00:52:10

In order for us to stay on the Serato Mr. Key

00:52:13--> 00:52:14

because that is your objective of life.

00:52:20--> 00:52:26

And if you read the fascia where our talks about the shiratama Akim

00:52:28--> 00:52:42

Akim Surat Al Quran, Allah doesn't say that. Allah doesn't say that the same path is the path of the Quran. Allah doesn't say that what does Allah say? This is the nazira thomastik in certain Quran was sunan

00:52:44--> 00:52:49

Allah says at the Serato Mr. sirata lady Nam Tara,

00:52:53--> 00:52:54

you have to look

00:52:56--> 00:53:03

at the life of the dvsa Salamis person and look at the Sahaba and from there you will learn what it means.

00:53:05--> 00:53:07

Then life is a Scirocco Misaki

00:53:09--> 00:53:13

and I'm telling him because they were the people who are lost, blessed

00:53:16--> 00:53:22

and that is the road we follow the role of example of Mohammed and his companions

00:53:24--> 00:53:26

so now last time the giving Charla that we

00:53:28--> 00:53:29

will follow

00:53:31--> 00:53:32

the straight path

00:53:34--> 00:53:38

and it's a simple path. You know, the straighter is always the best road.

00:53:40--> 00:53:41

Travel job is a street.

00:53:44--> 00:53:52

City you can overdrive on the street, but you know, it's four lanes. You can't go wrong. Now you want to go via

00:53:54--> 00:53:57

this road that road full of potholes.

00:53:59--> 00:54:00

Take the street route.

00:54:01--> 00:54:03

Straight from here straight into Jannah.

00:54:05--> 00:54:09

No cul de sacs, no detours

00:54:10--> 00:54:11

straight

00:54:13--> 00:54:15

and who do you keep in your rearview mirror.

00:54:21--> 00:54:24

So my law guide is all my family's my lucky person, the truth
