Now, that when I was visited the other day as well as I read the same song,
and I was expecting that he would speak on the surah.
That's what he normally does. Whatever it is read before that was this, this will be the topic of this address.
But then I have diverted it unknowingly by reading the Hadith on my YouTube interview, highly *ery, within every spoken on that particularly, something was left behind. And that's a sewer to go back to the surah when you go back to the zoo, and speak about it,
and the solar
is history is not unknown to you.
And the time has come
for the doors to be opened again.
Then any such decision at a lot of other things and as such the key that is made a lot harder.
And a task that is supposed to be fulfilled, Allah creates the means for it as well.
So in the doors of hilarya were to be opened, someone needs to carry that to all of mankind. There'll be one Nabhi also known received our
boss you belong to a group of people who will then become the carriers of it to the rest of mankind.
So the entire story of Daya
y of Risala of Mahoba
always entails a human element other than the recipient of that
But he alone wouldn't be going everywhere to the rest of the world. Each member every fiber every nation in the world know around him Allah Allah will then bring about a group of men
that will carry his message to others who in turn will inspire a group of people up to them one turning inspire generations and generations continuously up to the present day. That's how the end perpetuates itself and that's how you die from on high permeates the entire mankind
significantly in the history of mankind, and Rasul Allah
reaching a stage in his life
say the archer speaks about the mouthpiece
was made such a lovely place the love of solitude in his heart,
love of solitude, he want to be with people he wanted to be on his own. So he will go out
hunting metal fi, the way it comes in Mojave, it used to go to the cave of Hira Lee used to devote himself to,
to a bother in the way that he promised. And in that particular preparation, having withdrawn from the world.
Eventually, they're gonna fall in that day, when you get to him,
and the opening salvo that will be fired.
quoting him first of all, and then his own mother after what is required for them to go out into the world and carry the seed out of this. The rest of the world was commanded.
I'm not going to speak about the literal meanings the literal purport directive zero of this, you know that the FCA takes different forms you would have read about you have to have seen
on via that means all the language you have proceeded with the Quran that focuses on the Bulava. You have various different modes of Tafseer. There's one specific form of the series they called the FCB a Shara CLE Shari, what is the CBD shatter what is
it all about?
If you consult with a circle Rohan Maharani, you'll notice normally towards the end of every section that he gives it of Ceylon, he will mention one main berbil is shower.
Now this particular thing of CSV mashallah has been abused very badly by some people.
Some people have reduced the entire Quran to a set of analogical fables. When you say that there's no real meaning what's really intended is something else. There's no real meaning was really intended something else. The literal meaning of the Quran cannot be canceled. That literal meaning will always be ready to use what Allah said that's what he intended. But at times it happens. This comes in the fatawa Mohamed salah. Salah has asked this question What is this thing called miscibility Shara?
He says it's not the meaning of the verse, not
the literal meaning remains the literal meaning we have had in the history of Islam.
A certain set
rather group of six, which are generally known as about any year about India, broadly speaking are part of the Ismar Elysia, what they will do. They said that when Allah speaks about
hygiene the Quran has got nothing to do with Mecca and the Kaaba is got to do with recognizing ally of Natalia as the Imam and the noising the Imam of your present time as well, when he speaks about so it's not to abstain from food and drink is to abstain from all those wrong for claimants to the Imam, everything is reduced down to meaning such as that and this kind of thing goes on
among some of them,
what shall we say some of those connected to Kosovo have also this kind of thing happens sometimes they take certain iron and give it a completely different meaning to the intended meaning.
So in this regard, we find for example, Allah Allah speaks you are living in arterial Medina yeah Luna ko minion. kuffaar Karatedo Latina Luna Camilla kuffaar Literally what does it mean? Find those who are what really means what to be close
for some Sophie Medzhitov see, you know between says that means fight your knifes because the nurse is very close to you. That wasn't the intention. The intention is particularly nya Luna ko middle kuffaar literally fight against those kuffaar who will live close to you will use your FICO Marinova that's literal for some target. They give it an elegant allegorical meaning and say no, this is the real meaning. So when the allegorical meaning when this ishara seeks to supplant the original, meaning that it is incorrect.
But what is traceability Shara? If the Seraph says, after we read the literal meaning, you can study hopefully the man and then in your mind there appears another meaning which is similar to this one. And because you understood what Allah Allah is saying here, then it draws your attention, oh, there's something else to it something similar applies. It doesn't remove the original meaning. It just gives you an indication that there's something else which is similar. There's a type of similarities that type of appears. So that doesn't take away the original meaning, when it's the same relation around when it seems to take away the original meaning, when is it valid, When can it
be invoked? When the original meaning remains in place, but then you add something else to it and say emerges not directly out of the love, but there is a certain manner which arises there, which indicates to you something else somewhere else. So the first few idea of this particular surah the literal meaning is very clear. This may not be calorie Haluk read in the name of you have that created Allah Collinson, Amin Harlock, created men from what o'clock and then Allah goes on. Quran read and Europe is most generous, most magnanimous, the Allameh we'll call them all by the pin anomaly inside Ramallah Mia alum. The literal meaning is in place don't don't abandon that literal
meaning. If you abandon that literal meaning. You're gonna go into Zonda, you're gonna start interpreting the economy all unacceptable kinds of ways. We have this in Islam in the hadith of Gibreel, which is called almost sunnah hadith of Gibreel. Mohammed Al Iman Malik Islam, he has Aluna vs Allah Allah Allah cinema for use of the Eco
questions if you ask for four questions. First question was about
my one question Iman, one question she Islam one question. Yes, sir. One question and another Sar. And the third one is indicating the important aspects of our deen the third one was your son and the son has got to do with what the spiritual closest to Allah Tada and tab with Allah Karna Katara. Who, so that foundation is laid already there that there is spiritual life in Islam, that spiritual life eventually goes forward and it goes by the name of what
is the soul of always a good thing. Not always, but so off can be responsible for reaching its highest spiritual heights. And so what can be responsible for the Ummah reaching the lowest rungs of Ashoka as well can happen, what what God's against it, what God's what leads with things such as becoming a bad thing, and what leads to becoming a good at this moment in time, we have people who are not even Muslim, they also claim it as a wolf. There is a international Sufi movement. They have a Sufi temple close by Newlands, cricket ground. So the temple over there, you might know you might not even know about it, they're not Muslim, they also tend to be a Sufi, one of the 31 of the total
cortisol, which has or normally it is said about it, it is a crop of total either sooner,
the sooner they speak about the study, they some of the other studies have found its way into a group of Hindus, these Hindus in India in the town of Ripely. In India, there was some Soviet who decide is going to give you Jazza to some Hindu person and that Hindu person might be the entire in notare understanding what the same machinery of the it's an extra Mandia tariqa and a Hindu, Dr. Avani Acharya
Cough, how do you get the International Monetary? How does how do these things happen?
And those in those, they come to the grave of Mujaddid Alfie Thani and they go to the wave of cardio muscle, Jana, Jana, and they do all of these things. And you know, amongst the Sufis, they read the entire Silsila up to a Zulu Lasala syndrome. So the reality is they come up to Salman Farsi, and then they go up to the Naqshbandi Tariqah, goes via Abu Bakr city, they got up top of the Soviet when it comes to the Zulu lasagna and replace it with some other name.
But anyway, the point is not to tell you that they are Naqshbandi Hindus, the point is to tell you the person who can go wrong, that's all can be right and so what can go wrong? What allows the soul to remain on the path and what allows you to go wrong. The same is true for every other aspect of the Aqeedah is the entire foundation of the theta can go wrong. That's why we find in history what she has in our field and how our region, Moto G and moto Zilla and all of these things and you are learning about them. That's also a key that they also believe something but it went wrong. Why did it go wrong?
And then the other aspect of being which was what that was my Iman and then well, Islam, Islam, that can also go on the other side. Wacka morphic, there are people right now at this moment in time calling for the revive the ones is now what should I call it? The renewal of this entire effect? Why have a fit that says
you can't do this and you can't do that and you know this the entire thing must be overhauled, have an entirely new fate which says Well, well, you can have sexual relations outside of marriage. Just make sure you have no children from the you can drink wine, all the Mohammed can become halal. All the Mohammed can become halal. And the dean of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and Sharia Muhammad Salah becomes unrecognizable. What will be the God what oh god it again such such corruption
what will it be? There is something which also Allah Allah some left behind. It's easy enough to say Kitab Allah and so not everyone claims Kitab Alonso not Rasulullah sallallahu Everyone claims that what is it? Not only did Allah Allah give us a Kitab and also Allah Salam gave us a sunnah not only that, they gave us something else. What is it something else? Let's see if you know what it is
the whole llama okay. So the
answer is a vision. After that, I will
Rasulullah sallallahu sallam was not just given for an analogy he was given that most certainly, but together with it Allah Allah said
you have spoken Allah Who one Manitoba can
not just him alone, together with him that was prepared a group of people, a group of people that was prepared this Quran and Sunnah will be given to them. They are the heirs of it. And he taught them how to understand it as well. It didn't just come so yeah, Learn libata Learn Alhamdulillah up to anass know, what was his duty? You only Muhammad yet low Halima Yachty. When you are Limone kita will hikma my user key him? Our generation prepared in three steps they heard there was being recited by him they memorize it from the then they were spiritually cleanse from the inside so they become pure carriers of this word, and then the correct understanding of it was imparted to them.
The first great fitna that arose in Islam was a mecca of what it wasn't a rebellion against Quran and again sunnah. It was people who claim to know the Quran and Sunnah better than Abu Bakr and Omar Osman and Ali and the rest of the sahaba. Who were these people. They the same people that yesterday their fathers were forced back into Islam when they became more tired.
Now these people became super Muslims.
When the visa was on died, they the forefathers became, they became altered. They were the same people who claim once upon a time,
Medina and Allah Allah said, You cannot fall Allah Allah de la mana, Kalam told me no one that can call us Lemna. While Amalia Toliman Eman hasn't entered your hearts yet. So they had to be forced into Islam at the point of assault the person was forced to the point of assault is not automatically they start Muslims. But Allah has something in store for them so they have to help in the course of Islam. Only in Wuhan Luffy nominal rrbc visa to the ANA Illa comingled Eva essentially it soon time will come when you like to fight against the Romans against the Persians. So they were brought back into the fold of Islam, their grandchildren, their children venture NAFTA was went on.
Now they suddenly claiming who does Ali think he is to make takim within Allah. We know Dean better than him. That was the problem. Who is the custodians of what the proper custodians who are the ones properly equipped to interpret this deal? It wasn't those whose grandfathers were forced back into Islam at the point of halogen, Walid Saud. It was those who stayed in a terrible facade Allah subhanaw taala for 23 years. To them, we should go you want the proper understanding? You find earlier than we thought, you know, the alarm was standing on the member of confer and delivering and some jargon from the corner will come and shout What you
You need to hopefully learn in it will help with that. This is how the first few time Islam started. What did Rasulullah Salallahu Salam say about those people those who are rich?
They are killable now why are they could have not because they're the first ones to cause Shaco Hassan Muslim means the stick the staff of Islam they the first one to split it apart.
So sola sola salon didn't say that about Mojave or the Allahu differed with Ali, maybe they it's a matter of anti Fattah anemia, meaning Talofa osteo embody okra for cartoon that eatable he had that Fei Isla amarilla there was Muslim fighting Muslim but a misunderstanding with Hawaii. That wasn't the case where the Ferraris Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said fight them and kill them they are killable now why this this group is dealt with in one way or the other groups dealt in a different way because they were trying to usurp the authority of the Sahaba or the Allahu Anhu that particular authority and to whom they did have that authority come down in turn to the students of the Sahaba
of the Allah Allah. So they will always be Quran and Sunnah will be there and then they will be the custodians of the Quran and Sunnah as well. There has to be a human interpreter.
Those who are rich, they made a claim. The Quran read the Quran speaks was an alumna, Vitaly to demonstrate to them they fallacy ignorant people thinking that we know Deen better than the trainees of Rasulullah Salah so they say the Quran is the Quran deciso Alinea. Vitaly brings the Quran, it tells us now speak,
one cannot speak. Why do you demonstrate to them they Salinas he says the Quran cannot speak there will be a human interpreter who will speak for the Quran. And that human interpreter is not someone who succeed out of his thumb, what he speaks about, where did he get it from?
He got it from the one who lie on the panel, how I invoice you you have in this way, there is something in this in the household, we call it and it's not. Why in the huddle, el Medina from the rue Amantha who don't and don't get your inform Anyway, take your healing from those who got it from those who got it from those, and the Senate will go all the way back up to where and it'll be a nanny Sahaba and Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa, there'll be a lot of sources of knowledge, a lot of source of knowledge available, you can go to university and do a PhD under some ignorant or very well learned for that matter. non Muslim, some of them their knowledge of deen is
astonishing. But they did not take DNB manorbier el ously or PA Hera Safiyah. This really shouldn't be taken from and we take the in from anywhere else. We believe that there are levels that are levels of realities, underlying all of these things. This there's something inherent in this process. When you sit in front of me in a class I speak and you listen, there's something that's happening that goes beyond the sound that goes into your ears goes beyond the light that passes into your eyes. It is something that how does it get into Cairo, Sudan and Sudan, something different to everything else? It's something whereby the result of some spoke the Sahaba of the unknown, were
willing to go to the ends of the world to go and do what they needed to do. And I always speak about this formula, this formula, how did they manage to survive, because the type of inspiration that was given by the first generation kept not just a second, but the third, the fourth and the 27th generation as we are sitting right now, it keeps it going all the time. Such Baraka did a lot on the place in these things. So those are the proper sources of knowledge.
We are not related in any way. We are not related by blood or any other way. Okay. Nanana Kumar, Sanjana, Min Masha Irina, unreliable Manasa your Moto by Ian Lee something we related to one another in any other way. But there's something which connects us together and that's something has set me in a certain place and you are at a certain place and we are connected together like it or not. Who doesn't like it? Yeah.
You heard myself and know of
men who had no children because he had no wife. He never got married. He was like, there was
no wife, no children. And one more thing that you know with this one, the co founder of Calistoga resorts entrepreneurship. So he said he's an avatar he's, he's male children and loving. A lot of us said what after puking in the Shanika Your enemy is the one who was the avatar. In fact, you see that they they normally say why do you have sons they'll carry your name on with the most commonly given male name in the entire world today's Muhammad, you might not be sons died in his lifetime. Sons say Montoya died in his lifetime. Allah Tala did not want any of them to continue living, because there are people who are inshallah more devoted to him that on a Sunday is to the Father.
Now we had no children. He left such boobs behind today, we are still the children of his books. And that's a legacy much greater than the legacy of, of blood. The legacy of
Blood, you have a child, the child can be a good child or you can be a bad child. Inshallah and healing is the thing that ties the two together, hopefully, that he will go and hit, Navin will continue. So that the the one higher those higher up on that particular chain will be proud of those that come lower down on that particular chain.
Anyway, coming back to what we were speaking about speaking about Serato Harlock. And I said that there will be certainly a shout out in the not the direct meaning of the surah but certainly shout out in there,
a lot of other decided to open the opening salvo of why he would be fired in these words.
But when he says
read, much can be said about how this particular command brought an entire unlettered nation and molded them made them into the most educated nation of the world at the time. That's not what I want to speak about.
Let's look closer at these particular
the rest of the sentence The Metallica that bass Moravec read that he said, Today education, mankind has reached a level of education that he has never reached before.
The amount of knowledge that is around every other subject that you can think of. There's never been such a lot of information, we living in a time of the information revolution at the tip of your fingers, anything that you require.
That's such a lot of knowledge. But what's wrong with that knowledge? Not most of that knowledge is not for the sake of Allah. Why do we live in this world? We were sent into this world for a purpose not to develop from the iPhone five to the iPhone six and from there onwards and to go to mass that's not the reason why the purpose why Allah Allah created us in this world was modified to Allah and then a bad at Allah. So there's a lot of knowledge around everyone is reading, whether they reading books, whether they're reading messages, whether they're reading or even sending SMS and WhatsApp like our friend here to my right. Everyone is reading how much is that is for the sake of
Allah. When you read you read in the name of Allah. When you read you read in the name of Allah let your knowledge be directed for a particular purpose. But then Allah makes a very, very enigmatic remark that this may not be fine in the name of Europe. Why Allah the Hala qui kala Collinson. I mean Haluk Why is Allah Tala making specific reference to this particular set of use that he has created you? First and foremost because
when you speak to someone who hasn't known Allah yet, there's another layer and you refer to him as Allah is the one if someone asks you as a Muslim, what do you worship? What you know, the world is full of misconceptions on the Muslims worship what what do they think we worship, the moon god or black house or something of the kind? No, we worship the one who created everything, everything in existence, we believe it came about through an intentional act of creation and whoever was responsible for the deck of creation. That's the one that we worship is our
what I heard in this particular journey from myostatin of discipleland Puri around the Tafseer of this if there's a shadow that I want to bring to your notice, if there is any shadow in there for us to
look at the stages in creation. How does that Macula create? Is it just mother and father decide when to have a baby? They fall in something on the internet, they click and tomorrow the baby gets delivered. Now, how does it happen? Well, the cardholder cannot insert I mean so that you can maintain for Madonna who not offered them for your karate, McLean from Maha Cana northwater Allah, Allah, Allah Allah PATA mudra for Hala canal mapa de Lama focus ona Leyva Malama still not finish from Manchac. Now Halpern alpha, it happens in what stages, there are stages in which it happens. It's not just automatically immediately it comes about and everything could no che in Idaho.
Everything is according to a certain measure, everything is planned that Muller comes to the the fetus, in the womb of the mother and he is ordered to come and write certain things that is written into veritable into the DNA of the child. Everything biologically is well planned in advance. That's what the theme is all about. So in the same way as a child develops, stage after stage, you as a student develop stage after stage. And once your stages, your stages are called the following first year, second year, third year, fourth year, fifth year, sixth year, like you go through stages in the you go through stages in here as well.
And Allah Tala reminds us also called inside. I mean, think of your beginning what were you when you came to us you are what?
The example I'm going to mention is not the best of examples, and I'm quoting from you but back then when I was much younger than what you are now, there used to be a show on TV. It was a trunk that was translated into Afrikaans it was called Best a professor.
Best a professor was about law students at university and there was a professor, if you remember anything about it. We are the old people over
here is not that great today. I went somewhere and the old man met me and he comes to his life.
As beautiful as I say why you say you've got three different colors in your beard.
here today as well. I don't know how that came about but I said thank you uncle. But fine.
In this particular show called Mr. Professor every episode is to start with like this and it's Afrikaans and if you translated but you can, you must say enough if
a commoner meeting with a scared or foul horse. The professor says, you come here to me with a skull full of rubbish. Or some time ago, you came to me with a skillful horse.
And then what happens? We take up all the homeworks and start putting in the Tada lokala rasool Allah is Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah saw their own pollen Olia Colin fuqaha kala Hadith own and that's your stage after stage of your development. So you were in Harlequin the beginning and then you develop from the into something else and then develop into something else and then you develop into something else. And then comes a stage where you will be on the verge of doing work right now is a fifth year you got one more year ahead of you what happens then all those stages are done. But as I'm gonna say, then what do you do next?
You go out in society to print yourself business cards, you print on the that I am Mowlana Allama, shares Hatfield Poulin and foolery. That's the biggest mistake that you can make.
Look closely at a color the smell of bacon calorie hudec for the Collins, I mean, really shout out to the national team.
And then what happens? Do you think a child comes out into this world and then he's fully formed? No, now he's still being a sucker. You know, his needs to be cycled. And then eventually is going to start walking, and then is going to start running, then is going to go to school. This is your yo, YO NECESITO Fannia starts from here. Therefore Allah repeats the hokum again, your karate or Bukal across. We continue reading, don't think next year, you're going to complete your studies you're finished. No, you're not really you're not even close to being finished.
whatsoever. What is this now this is 2015 19 190 or 91 is how many years ago
23 years ago I completed my studies but this was not that you met of mine here. I heard something from him and for the sake of Abdullah
because Abdullah loves the auto language
what he said to us it just didn't come Hey, your house and senate Minjae to Jakob Hina. Samana came here Helene been Chukka bulky lb Harlene been Nikhil yatta yatta hoga. Translate for the brothers.
That was a lot.
Anyway, says, The day when you receive your certificate from you don't ever imagine that you've become an Halim, you've only became ready to start becoming an RV, and therefore the repeat of the hokum now, if you if you say that's the end of studies now then that's a failure. You could have passed Well, the highest of marks, and then you decide to close the books over there. You're not much of a success. Now what does Allah say? You continue reading now? You don't need the teacher, the teacher up to this point was those two little wheels on the side of the bicycle? Take those wheels off and ride and don't despair, don't despair. Allah will open up those doors because what
can occur from Allah is most magnanimous you make the effort will give you more and more, and where will it come from? You don't need to sit in front of the teacher any longer. Allah will teach you how will he teach you Allah the Halima? Bill, Allah,
all this, all these books in the visitors, they all is one another different and you can keep your connection with it. And what will Allah Allah give you a lemon in Santa Mala Mia, you didn't know if you will receive it. You make the effort and you'll receive more and more and Allah will open up such doors to you that you wouldn't even have imagined it a few years ago, but 15 years after my graduation, so there's about 10 years ago, I visited Microsoft.
They asked me What are you doing things like that, and we had a discussion. And he told me something.
We were discussing books and things like that. I remember I used to be in his house every day. I used to have breakfast everyday results. He used to have a huge library. And now then he moved to built another house and I didn't see that those many books any longer. He was busy writing his books. He's busy writing a shout from January to MIDI, yo t shirt 100 July value and a few other books like that. So I said what happened to all the books? So he tells me something he says in your life isn't highly
you will go through a stage when you dependent on the books of others.
But then he says comes a time when Allah opens up a certain window for you. And you draw directly from that window. You don't draw from books any longer. And he tells me he says I'm telling you this because you don't
happened to you when it happens to you then you know what it is all about. Then you take directly from that window. Now that's not what I wanted to tell you. There's another thing
there's another thing you read a lot of stories
and this friend of mine mashallah he was one of those very fortunate students who never went to class
at 14 He never used to go to class it was one of the laziest for my best friend though. And I told him because I was very happy said this you know the window will open you'll take directly on the the next weekend we had the next Friday end of July numbers. He said what is really books books all the time we just opened the window
it wasn't for you and your job. That was my rooster gave it to me.
Anyway, what did he say continue eating afterwards don't cut your ties will continue reading afterwards. And your obvious what can occur in Harlem, Harlem and in Santa Maria
that's my advice to any student of do not cut your ties with it. identify for yourself one particular subject that you feel you have an affinity with that you might have built up some expertise with. And then continue reading in that particular field continue reading acquire the books. I will tell you there was a time when acquiring books was a very difficult task. I lived through that particular time it was a difficult task. These days. How difficult is rare books you can get how
PDF you just download it from the internet. There was a certain commentary on on mascara called Mira Tolima fatty by Madonna Obaidullah Rahmani Mubarak. He was another ally de rana of India. That is my shades villagers I visited him. Hero the shadow Han Mischka. And when my father graduated in about 1961, then two one or two volumes of the shadow were published and my father got he bought those.
Many years later, when I started studying, I use this particular chakra. Then when I went to India, I was looking for it. I only could find the first two. I traveled in search of this I went to the author himself. He tells me he's got no copies of it left. Someone took all the copies away they went to the Arab countries. I didn't get his book but he has a forum in Hadith. I traveled from there to Pakistan for the shower to Lahore to Karachi everywhere I was looking for the couldn't find it. I came to shower went to some of the only Hadith on Amma they said you have this Kitab they say unfortunately we don't have a copy but he has 1000 rupees for you if you find it buy it somewhere.
So traveling the length and the breadth of the country looking for Kitab these days you can simply go Google you put in the name you can download it it's very easy. So when Allah Tala has made things so much easier for you, there is this weird relationship when the US BB are easy, the HEMA is low.
And when the US Baba difficult, there was a time what what was his name, I forget the name of them, I think so they run the show the code used to say that sheriff to bow leave, he had the chutney Murata in twice in search of Hadith to bring my own urine to survive. They didn't even have horses, they would walk on foot in search of Hadith. So when it was so difficult in the east of pentacles, and this is Allah system, when things are too easy, then what happens you have to make an extra effort, then you become lazy to make an extra effort. So while you are living in the times that these things are so easily accessible, there is something that you have to make an effort for. You
don't have to you don't have to go and search much. So when Allah Allah, Allah has obviated the need for a great amount of exertion of, of your own effort. And what should you do, just burn the midnight oil somewhat, go from your own side and do something about it.
And don't bother about what how's this going to be relevant? You study something, you say this is a subject, I want to master it. And
I'll go to as far as possible, I'll give myself the next 10 years, 15 years, but I'm going to master this particular subject, you will notice something will come up and then that will be required. I was a student in Egypt. And one of my friends over there, you might have heard the story he became machinery. I had no interest in this year business. The only thing that we some some of the other found interesting about this year as you sit in the cold water, you just hear about them and say, what are this year all about? For the rest, we're not concerned about them. We're not. We're not interested in them. But then I found my friend became a GA. And then I sold I told myself Well, I'm
gonna have to start educating myself on the topic. And then the day came when she called for a debate against Ebola. And suddenly I found myself that I yearn to be heard and abre was the only person that could actually go for it then and it was my honor to stand in defense of the athlete of that restaurant all the time. So I couldn't think where is it going to fit in but what needs to be done will have to be done and whatever Allah Tala selected for a particular task, the in time the the need will come. You know, when no honey Santa was in the desert building the chip, what are they telling you? You crazy building this ship in the middle of the desert? Is that when any foreign
advisor in 20 seasons people building ships over the
but Allah new wire given him the command, and when the flood came the ship was
there, so we need to build our chips. Even when we don't understand why someone feels that fit inshallah will be my field someone who is actually that will be my field. Okay don't make that for your field because it's not gonna go anywhere the file is gonna do it but for now, we're gonna change but the onome Maqsood Aviva, O'Malley, a hadith of Sierra Aqeedah. Dairy for that matter is another one. These are the subjects that we require expertise in. And you don't need to go anywhere to do the hustles. Especially just take it upon yourselves, I'm going to eat it further, as much as I can. And the time will come when you will be able to defend Allah's D. But you have to do the
effort. Effort has to come from your side. And in due time, the circumstances will unfold to such a way that you will see how you, Allah will make you relevant. And the time comes. However, that's up to where we lead up to it. Allah Mullins anima. Let me I wasn't intending originally to stop here once the time
have asked him. How long have we been speaking?
49 minutes, I was only intending to speak for 30 minutes. But fine, there's the rest of the solar still left. So let's see some of this color in NL in Santa Yato.
colonias a lot of the speaking about? This is a general tendency and son, what does he do? He just has this natural tendency to transgress is not in the nature of insan to be obedient. It's in his nature to transgress, when he's told, don't do it evil, don't do it. Why? Whatever the reasons might be, but we get the DNA from our father, or the Malays, and also don't eat of it. Didn't say that whispered anyone don't eat of it. But that's the nature of insanity. And therefore, why he will come from time to time when we drift away from it, why he will come to bring us back onto the right way can learn in that in Santa Laila. Why does insulin think that he has the right to transgress? Why
does he think he has the right to transgress, if man really understood that every step of the way, every step that at every breath that I draw in every way that I take out of my lungs, I'm in need of Allah, if He understood that everything that happens by the power and the Command of Allah, you won't find a single moment thing that is not in a one for a single moment, transgress, but we become unmindful of it. So what's in science problem, or
he thinks that I'm not in need of Allah, he becomes a man that I'm not in need of Allah. And Allah reminds us, whether you believe it, or you don't believe it in Arabic, or Raja. Now, let's connect it to our particular circumstances. When the student after his studies, decides that now I'm done with my studies, I'm going to be teaching a few people or whatever, you need to become a taxi driver, whatever the case might be. Why do you think that he doesn't know? Why does he give up on studying any further for the same reason, or raw stuff? You think I'm no longer in need of knowledge? No, you're in need of knowledge. I can tell you.
After I completed my studies, I was fortunate enough to have had very good teachers. And I was even more fortunate. I was lucky to have been in a class of very competitive plus a very competitive, highly competitive class and not seven of them 600 of them altogether. And
the hamdulillah with Abdullah, I graduated the top of that particular class as well. I had everything set for my head to start swelling. And I was only 20 years old, 20 years 21 years old at the time. I had every reason to say that. Oh, I'm great. I came on top of my class and I don't need to study anything further. But Allah Allah given me another great new hammer, give me the teachers who have put me on the right path. He told me this will happen don't get your head get start swelling. You still got a lot to go and learn. Don't stop here. Don't stop even though mashallah Allah has blessed you with this. Go on and go on and go on. Now today said how many years down the
line? Is it now 23, almost 24 years down the line. I can tell you today, the amount that I learned from graduation up to now when I look back at it, I will tell you that at graduation I knew barely anything. Barely anything while having developed from there onwards. If I had stayed there, not developed any further then I would have probably still been caught in that same role that I'm fallen I'm so great and so on. I can look back and say I was just a little whippersnapper, a youngster was lucky enough to be under the tutelage of greatest
with great classmates and
read a bit here and then Al Hamdulillah what happened happened but then I started my real study started after that my real study started after that similarly your your studies don't make the mistake of our our Salah don't become Mister Money. Don't think that I don't need it. You need it. Not you need it so much who needs it? This woman needs it. This woman needs Allah ma who will be able to stand up and take up the challenges that Allah Allah is throwing at us that Diane is throwing at us all the time. The challenges will come. They will now
Have a be a time that does not have challenges. There might be a time, it might be a time when there is no one to take up the challenge. The challenges will always be there. What happens when there's no one to take up the challenge? When there's no one to take up the challenge of humble and Allah Tada, the JAMA article Fana. Allah, if you if there is a group of people, and there's Dean amongst them, and they do not have the men among them, to reach up to those genestealer to the challenges, understand that at that moment, Allah has decided he must die amongst them.
Whereas it happened elsewhere in the world is happened. The example we normally give North America, South America, many slaves were taken from Africa over to those parts, some of them mashallah had knowledge. But Allah Ghana had not decreed the deen should survive, they threw them. They lost their view, even though they were good people amongst them. Allah hadn't ordained the deen should survive. And afterwards the the theory revived from people coming from the outside again. But they themselves those were all Americans, if they did not have the opportunity to pass it along to someone else that happened to them in South America, there was a group of Muslims who had been emancipated when they
set free the slaves in the early 1800s. They became emancipated. And then what did they do? They started their own massage, and they started their own modalities. And they were importing books and massage it from the outside. And they started living a martial law very, very Islamic life. They had their own community they were trying to revive, keep alive, the little bit of you that that survived the years of slavery. Now they thought the next thing that we are going to do preserve our deen, how do you preserve it in time such as that? By establishing boundaries by establishing misogyny. And then one firebrand or maybe a few friars came along and said that we have to make jihad against the
Spanish and the Portuguese who have enslaved us. So they started thinking along these lines here, they started thinking along these lines, they plan A, a rebellion against those overlords that had been there once upon a time, word of it spread out. And the Portuguese and the Spanish whoever it was, they came down upon them so hard, all the ringleaders were executed. All of them were caught and executed. We know all Mr. Remain amongst him. The next step was what indict out of the children and the grandchildren of those people. It was what this was in the 1800s. When the 20th century began, there wasn't a single Muslim left, not a single Muslim. You remember, you will know who was a
great soccer player from what was it from Brazil?
They were their forefathers was this African slaves that came from Africa? Why didn't didn't survive? Because someone made a wrong
decision. Someone made a wrong decision that we can make the jihad no the time wasn't right for them to do that. Time wasn't like a next what happened? Entire dinner was exterminated. Nothing remains. I'm gonna give you two other examples. One example was in India, same thing happened. The British came in, took it over. The Muslims tried to make jihad against the jihad didn't succeed. So what did they do next? They decided to start modalities. Start modalities for the preservation of the ones your modalities in every generation, there have been Alama and those valamar have multiplied and multiplied and they spread all over the world. You and I are recipients of the same shirt or
toolbar, the same three which is what a smooth Hatha between Ouattara will have is similar to the Ocula Culhane and B is nearby Bihar. Deen is preserved. The other example I want to give you is this particular part of the world the Cape of Good or what happened here while I'm abroad from other parts of the world brought here. Chef usually is brought all the way in Cape Town they put him down here, they put him on the farm of duminy Beatrice Coleman, the only people is called When was the the priest of the duchies in a company put you on the farm of the priests to have the placement might be able to achieve something with you, but he must not have contact with a Muslim community.
They bring Imam Abdullah noncardiac to Salem Tongariro they bring in they put him on Robben Island eventually let him out. But Allah Allah decreed the deal shall survive here. How do you mean survive by one generation passing to the next generation that will merge it was established. The mother was of the old majority it was established the Maasai who are written the books of Akita and Sharia and equality, and they managed to transmit it, at that time cut off from the rest of the Muslim world. They didn't have opportunity to go to Al Azhar to go and study or to go to Makkah to go and study or anywhere else. They did whatever little bit they could here and they've managed to preserve Tolman,
when the time came that they could send the children elsewhere to go and study and then happen Alhamdulillah they could send the children and then the intellect flourish and survive. And here we are sitting host today to students coming from all parts of the world to this part of the world. When Allah Allah has declared that he will survive, it will survive. When he is declared the deen will die out what does he do? In Allah Allah? Allah Allah in desire Aenean tizio in Salinas, how does Allah Tala take any more update on Allah? When Allah ma removed from a society D no doubt in that particular society, as long as this transmission of alien as long as it's not remains alive,
and as long as he's gonna continue transmitting, which D
sahih al Qaeda and Sharia for Salah SallAllahu Sallam that society will remain alive this is the world that you and I involved in this transmission transmission of what Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam has left us
the world we live in today we are getting back into that age of Horiba but Al Islam
then started out as something very very strange it was a thing no one would recognize it you will be downtrodden everyone would
how they look upon it Abuja Hello Abuja Hello everyone sham shed that
Buhari in are you to Mohammed and you're suddenly in the vat law of power and
that was the whole of of Islam. I see Muhammad is I'm gonna trample upon his neck Rasul Allah Allah and said Let him try. In fact Allah ha That was earlier. That's what the Buddha speaks about. In this one I'm not gonna speak about the Goujon and Rasulullah sallallahu and in a certain way, either as Abuja Hello around and the heirs of Muhammad Rasool Allah, Allah Allah masala ROM, we are going to the new age of vorbei once again, we again in a new age where there is water on the one hand who is there
are Italeri yarn harbor the needle Salah
there's again people in this world today we're doing what prohibiting people from just practicing reading. What did I Bucha hell, c'est la vie to Mohammed and you're suddenly in the lab at the APA. Now know
what's happening right now in the world.
Tell us shootings in America the other day are just the tip of an iceberg. The big problem What do you think it's a problem of what parking people have a problem with parking it's not just a problem of parking. Just now before I came in, I was sitting there reading an article someone said this by a Christian person in America wrote an article saying this problem of parking not just a problem of parking, parking has become a kind of a symbol for this Islamophobia. towns in America having problems with Muslims having parking for the massage and they want to ban parking. They have a problem with a Muslim taxi driver stopping next to the road and just doing his prayer. They have a
problem with Muslim misogyny seeking further parking space. And then they had a problem with three young Muslims religion students they say it's a parking dispute and they shot them they executed them what is that that is our eighth Allah the arbiter neither some law the world is going back where Islam is becoming a lot wretched outside a stranger. They don't want you they say what the local agenda committee or dinner Oleta will do nothing will let you know at times such as this we take.
We take courage from what Allah Tala says for Oh ha either you him Rob boom Leno Halycon Avadi mean, what a new skin and body but who is that radical, even half? Machar me? Well, half hour is not for anyone. At times such as this we have to hold on to our deal. And spread the idea amongst people of holding on to the at this time people want to toots, they wanting to do what they want you to get out of
the bounds of these. There are those who know, don't want to live a country within any longer, you'll find the phenomenon of the nonpracticing and that's the thing that the West respects the nice Muslim, no one who drinks a bit and he fought for negates a lot and he thinks a bit of wine that's a good Muslim. And the bad Muslim is which one, the one who prays not anything else. She's the one who plays just that system with a hijab. This is brother who grows this layer, that enough that alone is sufficient to bring the wrath of the West upon you today. We live in South Africa. We are very, very fortunate. Thank Allah praise Allah, that we are so fortunate we live in a country where you can do
these things and you won't be looked at twice.
One of the others gave me a copy of Jonathan Brown's latest book, misquoting Mohammed, Salah Aeneas Allah, and in the in the foreword of the book, he writes, he enjoyed his work. When he was here on a visit. He wrote it in Johannesburg. And he expresses this idea in the same in South Africa country, which I've come to love. Because here you find males walking with long flowing beards, women walking with their hijab, and no one looks at them twice, because he comes from a country where that is not the case. There is America, there is Europe, you've seen what happens in those places. A country that has respected Catholic nuns for as long as the world can remember, has a problem with a Muslim
girl putting on the hijab. What is that? Standards? That's the age of whole bar that we getting back to it once again. Abuja Hello on the one side, and Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu. On the other side, we are back in the age of Maccha. Where what could we do? We could just invoke Allah Allah's wrath against those who will do this in farla.
law that was about an era
right under the yen harbor than the La sala alright and can alHuda Amara be taqwa? What are we doing to the world? There might be some crazies over there who are calling to some very very unsavory stuff, but all
We have only message that we have for the world is what
about Allah Allah to shut up Sharia?
Are we in any position? Or are we even ordered by our deen to go and bomb and go and kill in the name and that's not what we're all about
the Hadith people will call this hadith Amir to aakar Tila nurse I've been commanded to fight a nurse and nurses what? Hammer house
hum readably Hill hustles How do we know either Bill hustles and the other list Mr. Well if it weren't Phil Quran or sunnah Alladhina kala Anna one na so how many how many people were those? A nurse who Alladhina kala kala who nurse in a nurse twice in the same idea in the first incident when nurses used one Matsui Raja Anwar hit, one man came to tell them about it and the second as it comes in the same same idea in Manasseh, Nicaragua Jama Allah come in not the entire world. So when Rasulullah Salah son said move to a new Katella nurse, we have to understand that the NASDAQ is not arm it is house How do we know it's house? Because when Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihe Salam St. Jaffa
Nebuta even the group of the Sahaba Doha Did you tell him God made you have gone live in peace they don't find anyone that didn't find anyone. In fact, they lost one of their number and who was one of the number that they lost Rasulullah Salah is known cousin, his aunt son Obaidullah and just became a an analyst when we came in. He used to be the husband of humble macmini. Habima are the hola Ana and he became another he became a mortal. And then the reason was, I'm married to mahabhava after that, but what did they go and do they did they take away the lovin jacket and execute him.
The Muslims didn't do that. It became a Muslim family.
this wasn't Madina Munawwara this was how Bucha we are living in similar circumstances today. So it was a metro Katella nurse and Jafra diabetology. They've been planning how to take over the government here, how to bomb how to maim how to kill, so that nurse couldn't be on if that nurse was armed and they would have been creating havoc in hamartia. They didn't create any havoc. So the law says I'm told you why go live there. Because there's a king over there. It was just and he doesn't do plus. We are fortunate. It's almost not quite.
But we are fortunate to live in a country that we live in a country where
we have liberties that few others have. While live you understand someone who circumstances but do not be overly happy because it won't last forever. It won't last forever. It will last only if we do what is necessary to preserve it. It won't remain the same. It won't remain the same sympathies for Muslims is dwindling in the circles of the eye in the Oval. It's not the same as it was in Mr. Mandela's day. We're not saying we're not predicting gloom either. But it depends we need to do something to show the type of citizenship wherever you stand will remain a favorable element in this country of ours. But we are living in a time of the new Abuja while facing the legacy of Muhammad
Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam are 18 can alHuda Amara be Taqwa right in Canada whatever Allah they are those who are making that Viva turning away for all of them. What do we say?
At times such as this we don't go out there and forcibly we can do what Abu Bakr did what do you do?
Like in Manor only a call and can you adorn a hula rasool Allah is Allah Allah Allah is Allah not to lie to Tao cartiva Now now what do we do when someone turns out and now the villa becomes a mortal though he's not making somehow your comment, Xena or something like that? We have very little that we can do. We can do that under those circumstances in Makkah in those days, what was our what was the salah Salem, what was he told and what kind of response was he supposed to have to Abu jehlen All those people one response Allah Mian be Anala ha ha era that was yeah, it was it Fabien Lottie here, son, here, it's not violence, you don't respond with violence in the age of horrible, then
your way to go is Dawa, you remind the people of what Allah is Seeing you remind people that there is a Creator, but we always created you. So at this moment, there isn't anything of violence, there's no violence, there's no need for any kind of type of violence. It is natural in circumstances such as ours, we will lose some of our number. But behind the law, the inflow into Islam is far, far, much more than the outflow there will be an outflow, and may it not be from us and those whom we love, and our families and our friends, there will be some losses here and there. But that's necessary also for the survival of this particular group of people in this part of the
And so what will happen happening? If those that continue to oppress Islam and Muslims, those are will Jehovah continue to say that I will trample upon his neck Kulla Ilam young day, we doesn't stop. Allah Allah says, Now Allah warns we are not warning. We were only told speak soft words.
Hola Hola. Hola. Hola Lena and say Allah may Allah be an Allah. But Allah will take revenge in his own time. Calla in LA Mian de la and as family nasiha Allah is warning him. Why is Allah warning because he had the temerity to threaten Muhammad Rasool Allah Salah Salem, no one shall threaten Muhammad Rasool Allah Allah except Allah will answer for him. So people will threaten and they will do certain things we believe certainly that the time will come when Allah will bring about change. Allah will do things in his own time is faster to bring about radical change No, Allah will bring us Allah Allah tells us a couple gehele let me enter him and his family nasiha now see I didn't carry
but in harpy and then what do you do then call together your coalition of the willing then call them all together for later on idea all of those Santa Rosa area as the random Elijah Allah will come. So Allah Tala speaks to the rest of us and say you according towards Allah, you are walking in the steps of Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah is Allah, you are continuing the legacy of that Nabi don't listen to all of the lateral Pharaoh don't obey those who say that stop calling towards it. don't obey those who say stop building masajid and mothers don't obey those who say stop having increase of Muslim schools and Muslim there's a Muslim that continue what you have to do and
connect yourself and Allah was should walk that ladder there who continues to God Allah continue going close to Allah Allah you have a mission in life. You have a mission and you continue with that mission. But remember your mission won't be successful unless you have that very very close link with Allah Tala. So therefore what should your EBA and that's a bad trouble Maya Kunal abdominal rugby
therefore was good at every time you go into God you get closer to Allah Tala and one of the most important things he knows how to normalcy or to lead a woman from Monaco. Which one is that? Budget?
The hiring of Dean should not be without damage.
Right in the beginning, everything else in his base. What is that now? For just over Asana, that's for the entire month. That is for everyone.
But this video doesn't have to hurt you. It was for
Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam before Islam Maharaj long before right at the beginning. We started with what it called is gonna be called La Villa. And the second third Revelation After that was what? Yeah, y'all Muslim will call me Leila. Illa kalila
so that is something together with all your other things. Whoa, caffeine. does get up five minutes before the time make

Now they deal with a haka of deen and the realities of the of the rule and getting closer to Allah. So he was very good at one thing, expressing those realities in words. Taking those and expressing the nice concise statements such as How did Allah Tala treat you he says da, da da. Whether Hamilton a Bharat all those things are explicitly so nicely that was of no use to me while I'm near Ruka yard and put Nana's cow happy.

That was how the Gambia were prepared for this particular task and we are well prepared those who follow the Gambia if they think that they can fulfill the role of the Gambia without going through the same steps that Gambia did, you've got another thing coming. So that's how Rasulullah sallallahu that's the legacy that he left for us those that will walk in his path. I know it's not the easiest thing to do sometimes some people even struggle with it.
