Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Shall we learn about how the Sahaba whenever the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked him a question they knew when to answer that question and when to say ln is messenger know better?
So it's this is part of wisdom This is part of understanding that a person knows what to do when my mother was slowly allowed to carry him and my birth further below him in a shadow energy Bismillahirrahmanirrahim rubbish strategy surgery where silly MD Dr. melissani aka holy Robin as
we were learning about the hemorrhoidal Hadees and Ron Bukhari mentioned, Muna wala, as well as Samar as well as Futaba, as well as one more way he mentioned, which was off camera, and
and there are many other ways of the hamoed Hadith, which the scholars have accepted meaning if a person has narrated her these based on such sources, scholars have accepted that why because of lack of time, and the great number of students, because everyone would not have the chance to stay with the chef and study everything from him. Similarly, there were so many students whom the chef could not give one on one attention to so this is why there are many ways of the humble Hadith and all of them are valid, all of them are acceptable. But amongst them, such as when our Willa as well as we gather, as well as Wesley, and other ways, scholars have said that a person could only narrow the
Hadees based on such ways of the hammer Hadith, as long as they had also explicitly given the jazza to the student, you understand, by for example, the scholar gave the book to the student, it wasn't permissible for the student to start quoting a hadith just like that, unless and until the teacher said that you are allowed to narrate a hadith from this book of mine, or from this document of mine. So many of these ways come along with each other.
each other is a condition for their acceptance. Anyway, there are many other things about such ways about the Hamilton Hadees, which is another science of its own, but I just wanted you to be familiar with these terms. And these ways, I don't want to go into all of that detail. Because right now is not the time in place. I just would like you to be familiar with these ways. You jazza What's the root of ijazah?
It's from jack is right permissible permission. So ijazah is to make something jack is for someone, meaning to give the student the permission, to narrate, to give the student the permission to teach that your teacher has tested you and they trust you. They know that you have understood you have learned properly, and therefore they have given you the permission to teach. Okay to pass on the knowledge that you have gained from them. Right, this is what it says. Anyway, let's continue. Bab mancora, the Hazel yenta Heba Hill madly soo woman wrote a full jetten philhealth hottie philosophy, her bad men are the the one who said, Hazel were yenta he be he allegedly Sue were the merge lists
and meaning at the end of the merge list at the end of the gathering, woman and the one who wrote for Jonathan, who saw a gap fill help party in the circle, in the halaqa. philosophy has, so he sat in it, after mentioning the ways of gaining knowledge. Now remember, he is mentioning the miraculous the gathering of knowledge that what should be the etiquette of the student of knowledge in the gathering. And over here, he mentioned two things in this chapter heading, that it is permissible for a person to sit at the end of the gathering and also to sit in a gap that he finds in the halka. halka is actually a circle. What is it a circle. And the prophets are the Lord has said when he said
with his companions, they would form circles. Why? Because everybody was able to see the Prophet sallallahu sallam, as well as one another. But this is only possible when there is a small group of people. If there are many, many people, then it's not possible to have one circle. Right? It will become very difficult to see one another. Those of you have been here for a long time, you know that many times when we've had our, you know, quizzes and competitions, we've tried to sit in circles in this classroom. And our circles are huge. Why? Because Alhamdulillah we're so many number. So when there's a smaller group of people, then it is better that people sit in a circle. But when there's a
huge group of people, then it's better than that people sit in a way that is appropriate that everybody can benefit. So if a person comes into a gathering of knowledge, and he sits at the end of the module is is that permissible? Yes, it is. If a person comes and finds a gap in the middle of the modulus, can he come and sit there? Yes, it is permissible. Now, we see over here that both of these ways that if a person sits at the end, where the people and meaning right behind them or if he finds a gap and he said
There, both of them are permissible as long as a person does not cause any inconvenience or any disturbance. If a person finds an empty spot he should, he must go and fill that up. But if he does not find a spot, then what should he do? He should go and sit at the end of the muchless. What we learned from this is that a person should not demand that a separate spot must be reserved for him that if a separate spot has not been reserved for him, he says, I'm not staying here, I'm going away. Know, wherever you find a place, go and sit there. Don't move other people don't cause disturbance. don't cause any inconvenience. And don't even go away. Wherever you find a spot filter.
And if a person goes into a mattress and somebody offers him some space next to him, then what should he do? He should go ahead he should go and benefit from that opportunity. So let's look at the hottest hot designer is Maria. Allah had destiny Malecon on is how Courtney of delay him a little hotter and hotter. Mola Aarthi live Nia Vitaly of Amara Amara, who was the molar of urquell even Abu Talib what is the word molar mean? freed slave, remember, Mola is freed slave. So Abu Maura was the freed slave of who earthly even, I will call him
so he's one who's narrating this Hadees that he said that a borrower who on a be worked in a lazy of work with a lady informed him that under Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Bane ama, once while who are jellison he was sitting where famous God in the masjid when NASA Mara who and the people were with him in Alabama, when he advanced when he came, who came selasa tuna for in three men, now for you know is used for a group of people as well over here it means a group of three people. So in other words, three individuals, three people, they came for acapella. So he came forward, he advanced who is nanny two of them.
Three people walked into the masjid while the prophets are allowed Islam the companions were sitting, two of them came forward towards the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah who already who send them where they have our Hayden and one went back, three walked in, to come forward and one returned, he went back, Allah He said, who said the narrator, that for walk or fair, so both of them stood, Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. For Amma huduma. So as for one of them, for air for jetan. So he saw a gap where Phil help it in the circle, you know your word halaqa. Right, this is the same word actually. Because halaqa
is a small gathering of knowledge of study. So because it's small, this is why people would sit are supposed to sit in a circle. So these two men who came forward, this stood before the prophets are allowed to sell them as if they were looking for a place to sit. One of them he saw a gap in the circle. So what did he do for jealousy? So he went and sat in that gap, what Amala Haru. And as for the other for jealousy, so he said, Hold for whom behind them behind who, behind the people who were sitting in the circle, he could not find a place within the circle. So what did he do? He went and sat behind the people who were sitting in the circle taking imagine like, another circle forming
around that circle. So he went inside behind the people. Well, unnecessarily so and as for the third person, for about us, so he returned, that he been going away, meaning he went back, he didn't find a spot, or he was trying to come and sit anywhere. He didn't think it was appropriate, it suited him to sit behind he wanted to be in the front. So he just left he said, Forget it. He went to a fellow man so when Pharaoh Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam faraja, meaning he was he completed his speech when he became free from what he was saying. The shows that he was addressing and as the people walked in as they were finding spots for them to sit
at, he continued his speech. When he became free color he said, Allah Oh bureau calm, should I not inform you earn enough or is that is it about the group of these three people? Um, how to home as for one of them, for our ilahi so he took refuge in Allah, meaning he gave himself to Allah for our whole level. So Allah also gave him refuge, meaning Allah also came in into his mercy, what Amala hora and as for the other festival
Here, so he felt shy. First the Hello woman who, so Allah also felt felt shy from him, was unwell fo and as for the other meaning the third person for Baba, he turned away for the Allahu anhu. So Allah also turned away from him. What does this have these show to us that sitting in a gathering, sitting in a place, choosing a spot for yourself, reflects who a person is, what he is, what his status is, in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. It shows that if a person is eager to come closer, Allah subhanaw taala is also eager to welcome him, to accept him to bless him. If a person is shy, he is reluctant, he stays away, he's hesitant, then he receives the same from Allah subhanaw taala.
And if a person turns away, that Allah also turns away from him, sitting in a gathering, does not just show, you know, whatever spot a person found convenient for himself, he went and sat there No, it reflects the entire attitude of a person, how eager he is, how serious he is, the more eager the more serious he is, he will find a place in the gathering
a place that is suitable being a place where he can actually learn properly. And if a person is not that serious, he doesn't find a convenient spot, then he will just go away. And when he will go away, who is he depriving himself, we see three attitude in this Hadees. First is a case of the one who came forward. The profits are a lot of sudden was aggressive, the people, the halaqa has already started. The people are already there. But just because he is a little late doesn't mean he should go away.
Doesn't mean he should not take advantage from what he may be able to.
And just because people were already sitting, it doesn't mean that he has to go and sit at the back. No, he came forward. He stood looking for a spot.
And the one who comes forward, the one who is eager. The one who is looking for an opportunity that allows the panel Dido will give him the opportunity. He could have just sat at the door. He could have just said at the end of the merge list. But he came forward, looked around, waited, found a spot went and sat there. He did not settle with less. When it comes to dunya we want the best. Those who want the deen they also want the best. So this person came, he waited, he looked. He didn't settle with less. He wanted the best. And he found a spot because when a person strives and allows the panel data will also give him that oh feel and look at the words that the prophet SAW the
loudest and I'm used to describe him. And I heard him for a while in a life of our hula. When a person comes to gain knowledge when a person comes to a gathering of knowledge of reading, then he is giving himself to Allah in the sense that he is taking the protection of Allah subhana wa Tada. When we come into a gathering, we're not coming for one another, we're not coming for the sake of each other, we're actually coming to gain the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala at the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. To acquire, to gain his protection to gain his blessing. And when a person comes with that intention and his drives and allows a penalty will also bless him he will also take him
into his mercy. And this is so true, that the more serious a person is in acquiring knowledge, that is what he gets meaning he does go he does leave with knowledge, he does not leave empty handed. When a person goes somewhere to get something he has made up his mind. He has that firm resolve, he has that firm intention, then what will happen Allah subhanaw taala will also give him what he wants. He gave himself to Allah, Allah to came in, for our law allowed to give him refuge. As for the second person, what did he do? He was shy of overcrowding the place. He was shy. So what did he do? He felt hesitant he did not come forward. So he said at the end. And this was also okay for him.
Because he did not go away. He did not find a place in the circle. He didn't say forget it. Let me go away. No, he was shy. So okay. He also found a place that was at the back. And the scholars they haven't interpreted this fester, he Allahu Minh, who that Allah was shy from him in two ways. First of all that, you know, he was reluctant. So Allah was also reluctant and giving him obviously a lot of hands on his hair is different from the higher of people and we understand that
And what this means is that a person will only find a lot the way he thinks of him. A lot of times it says that I am as my servant thinks I am. So if you feel shy, then you will be deprived. You understand, if you will not come forward, it will not be forced on you. If you stay away, knowledge will also stay away from you. If you hesitate, you will not get the opportunity. What does this teach us? What does this teach us? Should we be shy when it comes to learning when it comes to gaming, when it comes to excelling? No, we should not hesitate, we should come forward. Because if we hesitate, if we avoid, then what will happen, opportunities will be taken away from us as well.
Allah will also be hanging out with us, how you with us. So the one who was shy, Allah will also be shy with him.
Secondly, the scholars have interpreted this as that Allah was shy from him, meaning Allah did not punish him. He also forgave him, because he did not this man when he walked in, he did not find a spot in the actual circle. So he did not want to cause any inconvenience to the people. He did not want to create any disturbance. So what did you do? out of China's out of courtesy, you just went and sat at the back. So he didn't leave. But he also didn't strive much. So Allah subhanaw taala did not get upset with him. Allah was not angry with him a lot. So forgive him. What is the show to us? What's the lesson that we learned from this? If an opportunity comes before you take it, grab it.
The thing is, many times we're waiting for opportunities, we don't look for them. We don't search for them. The first man he came, and he was looking, he didn't say, oh, everybody's sitting already. Let me just go sit at the back no signal, I want the best. I want the best. He was looking for opportunities he found the second person he waited. He didn't find. So he just went and sat at the back. The third individual, what did he do? What did he do? He just turned away? And he went back. Why? Because he did not find a spot in the Hannukah in the circle. Because he did not find a suitable spot to sit at. He said, Forget it, I'm going away. What does this teach us that if you
don't find the ideal, the perfect the best spot, it doesn't mean that you deprive yourself completely. Many times it happens that if for example, a person is a few minutes late to a class for a genuine reason, they will feel shy walking in and they will not come into the class at all. And they will say you know what, I missed five minutes, forget it, I'll dismissed I'll just skip the whole class and listen to the recordings later. Know, if you have missed five or 10 minutes, it doesn't mean that you deprive yourself from the rest of the 25 minutes, you understand, because the one who turns away, then Allah also turns away from him, the one who turns away from that
opportunity, he doesn't ever get that opportunity again. And you may have experienced it yourself as well, that you came a few minutes later you said, Okay, forget it. Let me just do this right now. I'll catch up with somebody else. And you never,
you never got the chance to do it again. That when it comes to the new we take the initiative, whereas we see here that when it comes to the matters of the dean, we're supposed to take initiative over there. When it comes to the matters of Dean, what is our attitude, generally, we become very passive. Yeah, we find an opportunity good enough. If we don't, it's okay. Doesn't matter. That we learned about many etiquettes of sitting in a gathering from this Hadees. And not just etiquettes of sitting in a gathering. But in general as well, that first of all, we see that if you ever find an empty spot anywhere, go and fill that up, go and fill that up. And handler This is emphasized a lot
over here handle, I don't see any empty spot right now towards the front. So very good.
reminders do benefit.
Not the second person was shy. So Allah was shy from him and the third person when two is allowed to turn away from him, that sometimes it happens that you walk into, for example, the muscular the classroom and you see empty spots towards the front, and you feel that you could go fill them up, but you feel shy of walking in, because you feel that you might disturb other people, then is that we should be careful. If you think that the gap is very little, there isn't enough space for a person for another person to come and sit there then be considerate of other people and don't go and fill that spot. However, if you think that that spot is big enough, and other people could squish a
little, and you think they will be okay with it. They are knowledgeable enough to know the first two who fill majelis then go ahead and take that opportunity. Now and we learned earlier that there's two types of hire hire that is praiseworthy and hire that is blameworthy if a person out of shyness stays away that no no I don't want to go to the front. Then this is hire that is blameworthy. Because we feel that Oh, everybody's going to be looking at us. No. This is why I said as long as we don't create any disturbance or any cause any inconvenience to the people because we have also been forbidden from crossing.
Seeing, you know the necks of the people meaning going from between in a way that we are disturbing other people. So whatever spot we find, we should go and sit there, the closer, the better, but do not cause inconvenience. That many times we're just waiting for the ideal situation, you know, when this is done for me and that is done for me and the situation is perfect only then I will come forward and do what I have to do. But when it comes to dunia matters many times the situation is not ideal. The circumstances are not always favorable. But still, we will take advantage the best that we can, you know, many times it happens when you go to a grocery store, the line is long. What will
you do? Look for the shortest line, isn't it so, and you will be looking scanning the carts of people which person has the least items so that I can go and stand behind them? Because we want to save time. But when it comes to the matters of Diem, it's okay. Nevermind.
Like I was just saying that this also shows how much they had really made up their mind to learn. So going to the gathering of knowledge sitting down like being in a state where I'm going to go, I'm going to learn I'm going to find a way to sit and learn regardless. Whereas another person might be well, I'm not so sure another person Well, there's no spot like he hadn't really made up his mind. And so like you were referring back to being eager about seeking the knowledge and I think that eagerness also with having made up the mind that yes, I'm going to go I'm not leaving until I have something with me. Yes. in them. alarma Lou Binney yet for the weekend, Chris that's going on right
now to QE for when we get sued, and there was very limited space. And there were some students who were very young as well. And we didn't have any space. And we said, okay, no, we'll put you on the waiting list. And they said, they wrote us these letters, who told them, I can tell us why do you want to study and they wrote these nice letters that on the Day of Judgment, if someone asked me, you know, what am I going to say to him, things like this. And now we've noticed that we had the first practice test last weekend this weekend, and one of the sisters we came up on third or second or third. She was younger. She was the one who was on the waiting list. We weren't going to take her
but we took her because she was begging and standing in line for so many hours.
So the one who wants to do something they find their way. And Allah also gives them the opportunity.
Bab colina bu sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Aruba mobile loving, many of who mobile la who is that mobile firewall must rule the one to whom the blue has been done, meaning to whom something has been conveyed. So robomow by loving many times the mobile love meaning the one to whom something has been conveyed to they are or, or from worry, whatever you have, don't worry, yeah, what does it mean to retain something or more retaining? Meaning the one who retains more the one who remembers more the one who understands more men than semi or in the listener?
The statement of the profit sort of artists are not that many a person to whom something is conveyed, may retain it better than the one who heard it. What does it mean by this, that they are able to remember and retain better than those who conveyed it to them? The word robot
What does robot mean?
Perhaps, maybe, it gives a meaning of the clean to show the killer that some a few and sometimes it gives the meaning of that many, a lot. And you remember that the meaning of the word robot changes according to the context, sometimes it gives the meaning of maybe perhaps as we have learned in one of the Hardys earlier. Sometimes it gives meaning of the cleeland sometimes it also gives the meaning of life. For example, in the Obama era de La Nina cafaro, locanto muslimeen. Over there, Obama means the clear meaning many times they will wish that there were Muslims, when in the hereafter many, many times again and again they will wish over here we see. This is for the khaleel.
It's not for tequila, it is for the lead, because it happens that the one who is being taught or the one who is being conveyed, he understands better or he remembers better than the one who taught him the one who passed on that knowledge to him. However, this is not more common. What is more common isn't that the one who is conveying understands better, the one who is conveying the one who is telling the other is teaching the other remembers better, understands better and that is the reason why he is teaching in the first place. So under this chapter heading down Buhari gives a hadith that had the cinema sudden color had disinhibition color had doesn't have no owning an ethnicity on Abdul
Rahman evening, Avi baccata, an OBE the Quran, obeah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or their or their very re that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was sitting quietly
He was sitting on his camel and Recaro he mentioned who mentioned the narrator that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was sitting on his buried on his camel. Well, I'm stuck in San Juan, and a person was holding the hill for me. Oh, busy man, he, he was holding on to the rain or the halter of the camel. The camel As you know, there is a rope that is tied to its mouth, and there's a string or there's a rope that goes through the nose as well. Okay, and that ties at the mouth altogether. So this rope is called what kill bomb or xima. So a man was holding on to that rope.
Why was he holding on to the rope so the camel would not move?
And the prophets Allah said I'm sitting on the camel, he was addressing the people.
Color he said, au Yeoman, Heather, which day is this? Are you which Yeoman they had is this which is this fossa Katonah? So we were silent. Hector until or because one and now we thought and who indeed he say you saw me he soon he will name it. See what other than is smiIe. Its name?
The profits are a lot isn't a master people which day is this? Obviously they knew which day it was. But they remained silent. Because they thought that the profits are allowed a certain was going to give that day a different name. He was going to give it another name. They knew the answer. But it was quite clear to everybody which day it was it wasn't something hidden. So if the profit sort of artisan was asking which day it is there must be some reason. So this is why they remain silent. Allah He said Elisa, Yeoman, Natalie, is it not Yeoman nap? Oh, now we said Bala. Of course it is. Allah the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said for a you shed in Heather. So which month is this? For?
SOHCAHTOA? So we remain silent? hotter because one and now we thought that a no indeed Isa you send me the latest me that he will give it another name for Carla. So he said la selbyville hedger, is it not the ledger? Is it not the month of the ledger corner? We said Bella, of course, Allah He said, Prophet sallallahu Sallam then said for in edema accom. So indeed your blood was unwelcome and your wealth, your properties, what are all the comb and your honor are all this is a plural of real we did the word earlier. So your blood meaning your lives, your properties, as well as your honor Vayner comm between yourselves among yourselves is how long it is sacred. How sacred is it, the
whole mighty Yomi calm has just like the sacredness of your day, which is this one, which day is the day of in the month of the ledger? I the days of Hajj, so very sacred. And remember, in the sacred months, we're not allowed to even fight one another isn't at all. And in the sacred month, that is not permissible to have any wars. And especially those people who are at hedge, they cannot even clip their nails, cut their hair, lot of other wonderful Sukkot Elijah dalla Phil hedge. So he's reminding them that look at the place that you are in, look at the time, your blood, your properties, Your Honor, is how long is sacred just as this day is sacred, just as this day is
sacred, likewise, your lives your properties, Your Honor, is also sacred fishery compare that in this month of yours, the hijab, a sacred month, fee, Bella decom. Heather, in your city, the city with city is that the city of Makkah. So just as that place is sacred, that time is sacred. Likewise, your properties meaning of one another, the life of each other, as well as the honor of one another is also sacred. In other words, just as you won't harm someone at this time in this place. Likewise, you should not harm someone at any other time at any other place. Just as if you have respect for one another at this time at this place. Similarly, you should have respect for
others at other times, and also at other places. respect for one another is not limited to only the city of Makkah, only the state of fasting, only the state of Islam, because it happens when people are fasting to say, Look, I'm fasting. I cannot lie. I cannot do such and such. When people are at hedge when they're wearing their home, then if somebody bothers them, even if they want to yell even if they want to pick a fight, what do they do? They remain silent because they say I am at hedge so
At hedge or in the state of Iran at that time in that place just as you respect one another, likewise, you should have respect for each other at other places at other times as well. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam then said, Lee Bella share his liuba Little lamb over here is off, that he should convey, who should convey a showerhead, the one who is present, who should he convey this message to Allah is the one who is absent. The one who is listening, meaning the SAM air, the person who is showerhead, the person who is a witness here, who is present here, he should convey whatever he has heard whatever he has learned to who, those who are not here, those who are not here, why are
they missing? Why are they absent? What's the reason, either because they're not born, they weren't there, like us, or because they were at some other place at that time, something else prevented them from being at that gathering at that place at that time. So, whoever is present here should convey to all those who are absent, meaning convey why for English or hidden, for indeed the showerhead, in in the one who is present, also, perhaps a new believer, perhaps he will convey to who man to the one who, who he is, or the woman who, oh, Allah, Who, meaning he will remember it more, he will remember what more what has been conveyed to him, and he will remember it more than who men who then
him then who can the person who conveyed to him. What is is Heidi's show to us that convey because you never know, the one who is receiving it from you might benefit from it more than you have benefited, and he may benefit others more than you have benefited others, convey, pass on whatever you know, because you don't know who is receiving it from you what they might do with that knowledge in the future, they might pass it on, they might benefit from it more than you have. And this shows to us that it is not permissible for us to keep knowledge with ourselves only good manner in concealing knowledge, it is something that is prohibited, it is something that is not permissible.
So when a person learns when a person knows something, then it is his obligation that he should convey it. And you should be hopeful that those to whom he is conveying whatever he is conveying to will remember it more than him and they will pass it on better than he has. This Hadees teaches us a number of lessons. First of all, we see that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was giving the hope but he was addressing the people sitting were on a camel. And this shows that it is permissible for a person to address others while he is situated or seated at a place that is higher than theirs, higher than the rest of the people. This is not Cupid This is not arrogance. This is not pride.
Because yes, we see that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would sit amongst the people on the floor along with them such that when the Bedouin man came, he couldn't even recognize which one was the Prophet sallallahu sallam. However, there are times when the gathering is larger, and the one who is speaking the one who's addressing the people has to be at a higher place in order for his voice to reach out to everybody and in order for the people do see him. Secondly, we see the great respect that the Sahaba the companions had for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that they knew the answer. They knew exactly what day it was, which month it was, but still they did not speak. Why? Because of
respect for the Prophet sallallahu. Salah. Does this mean that anytime we're asked a question we should not speak out of respect for the person who is asking? No, there are times when it is expected of you to answer a question and there are times when a question is being asked in a rhetorical sense, you should understand what kind of a question it is. If it's a question of its divine meaning you are being asked, an answer is being required of you than it means that you respond. Like the gathering in which the profits or the loss of the master companions about which tree resembled the believer. The Sahaba answered him. They gave their opinion they answered whatever
they understood. However, there are other times when a question is being asked not because an answer is needed. But to make the listeners more alert. It's a rhetorical question.
It's a question that is meant to alert the listeners. So there's a harbor they knew which kind of question they were being asked. And accordingly, either they responded or they remain silent. And that shows the wisdom the understanding that they have developed. You're going to say something you are teaching us we stay quiet on purpose, we know you asked you are going to answer and many times we understand now you as you want and still remain silent.
Obviously the person does not know the answer. They should remain silent. But when a question is being asked then you know we should speak up. Anyway. We should know when to
Answer and when not to answer. anything you'd like to add, Before we continue, the narrator even told the position that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was in when he was narrating. So didn't take it out of context. Specific. Yes, good. Now, what's the chapter heading over here? that many times the person who is receiving understands better remember is better than the one who is conveying? What does it teach us? What lesson do we learn from this? The chapter headings means that when you're conveying something to someone,
it's quite possible that they understand they remember better than you have understood, then you have remembered, because sometimes we think that just because we were in that class, or we have read this book, we understand it much better, we will remember it much better, we will relate it much better. But it's quite possible that the person that you pass on the knowledge to they will use that knowledge much more than you have. So like, I was just thinking that while you were explaining that, I was actually thinking of body himself as like, isn't it amazing that he had many, many, many teachers, but the way that he has put together his book, and the way he used them to prove certain
things I was just thinking is absolutely amazing that his understanding when to another level, many times it happens that when we learn about something, you know, we feel that we have something that other people don't have, and we want to keep it to ourselves because we feel special in that way. But this is not right. tell other people as much as you can, whatever, you know, pass it on, even if it means that at the end of the day, you and Len will be at the same level of knowledge. Why? Because it's quite possible, they do more with that knowledge than you have. I was thinking in terms of PhD students, when they do research, that particular topic that they choose, they have years and
years and years. And yet the person has not arrived at a certain conclusion. And finally, one person comes so many years down the road, and they come to an end result. And this is like for instance, you know, people have been researching cancer and AIDS and those kind of things. And then suddenly, at the, you know, the flick of a button, they come across the solution to a problem. So you never know how it's being conveyed. The same material is being conveyed. Yes, but the end result is different. Exactly. It's not always that sometimes you can connect to the knowledge a certain level, but the one you can bring to the connect more in their life, and therefore they remember it because
at that point, there may be going through a certain thing that they could connect to, and therefore can be better. Exactly. So be very generous with your knowledge, that the lesson we learned, be very generous share, whatever, you know, pass it on. Because you never know the one who's learned something from you may do much better than you have done. Smith Assalamualaikum. I was thinking about the children. Also, I remember once I tell my kids about the Hadees you shouldn't make a person get up from his place, and you sit in it. And then we have a guest kids and I tell my kids give that place to sit. And he said Didn't you tell me the headings, this one. So I forgot that
Harrison reminded me. We were alive at that time. But now it gives us so much of that when we are getting this knowledge, we should also have hope that we can maybe understand it better.
That we see that overtime fit has evolved so much that there were many matters that were not clear to the people of the past. But they became clear with more knowledge. For example, in the third generation, the fourth generation of after the Prophet sort of all the sudden, everybody did not have knowledge of all of the Hadees. But later on when the collection such as that of so he Buhari and other collections came up when more authentic bodies were clear to people, you know, people understood the deen much better. What's so hard is to get the knowledge from profit or loss and that even if they didn't speak they were waiting for to give something new. And they waited at that time,
even though they know the answer. But never How do you stop seeking knowledge? I find that just following on with one of the points another sister made was with a project that I'm doing. They say like, you know, a photo speaks 1000 words. So sometimes I put a photo up and come up with like the different sisters that see the photo, they come up with, like so many, you know, wild explanations for it. So I think like everyone's background, like when you share something really small, everyone's background can bring so much more element into that thing that's so small and it can touch so many people if you share like anything smaller than you know.
You may feel that yourself that for example, if we were to study all of these bodies individually, ourselves, we would not understand the way we're understanding right now. When you tell somebody else, they give their affection, their understanding. And together it makes so much more sense. So whatever you know, share it even if it means giving a comment in class because you never know. Somebody might benefit more than we have. Let's continue bad. lol mokaba lol coli well Originally, it really would not
edge knowledge comes up a little cold before speech while normal and action What does it mean? That before talking and before acting before saying something and before doing something what's the first step gaining knowledge. Now under this chapter heading one behind you does not really caught a Hardee's with asenath. If you look at it, he's quoted statements as well as you know from the Quran from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam as well as the companions. However, he has not mentioned it Hadees with a sonnet, rather, he gives a thought and he also mentions verses that prove his point. And we see that this chapter heading of Babel Elmo, cabello, Cody and Arma This is
something that is proven This is something that has many evidences and it's not necessary that you know several Hadees be mentioned as an evidence for this because this is a fact this point it has evidences from you know, as far as well as NASA, what does it mean by so meaning from some text, for example, from the text of the Quran and Sunnah in the Quran? For example on Buhari mentioned over here the tala tala because the statement of Allah subhanaw taala farlam and the hula either in the law know that there is no God but Allah for better, really. So he began with knowledge, meaning a lot of panels are not so real kulu What did he say farlam Eman and statements and actions all of
that begins with what knowledge knowledge comes first. So this fact that Elmo Carbonell Cody will armor This is proven by evidence is the real there are a theory as well as naza de novo meaning intellectual, like for example, it is understood it is only logical that a person cannot do armor except with knowledge, knowledge comes first. And then comes action all actions are based on some kind of knowledge. Like Allah tala farlam, and the hula Illa Illa law further built in, so he began with knowledge. So know first and act. Second, what comes first, knowledge, what comes second, actions and statements. And this shows to us the importance of gaining knowledge because unless and
until a person gains knowledge, he cannot do Armand he cannot say the right old question, how can a person attain knowledge? What are the different ways of gaining knowledge? And asking you? It's not a rhetorical question? What are the different ways of gaining knowledge? By reading by listening, by observing by asking, by attending a class by teaching experience, if you look at it, all of these ways can be summarized into three, first of all, knowledge is obtained through a teacher. And this is the best way Why? Because the teacher has what the student does not have, the teacher has sometimes what a student cannot find in a book, or what a student cannot understand just by reading
in a book. And learning from a teacher is much more faster, and much more efficient and much more effective. And it's also the safest way of learning. If you want to figure out what a particular word, you know, its root is its muster is its literal meaning is you could be looking through one dictionary into the other. But if you find somebody who knows from before you just call them up, you just ask them a question. And there you have your answer within seconds. So it's much more effective. It's also safer. How would you read from the book, you can misunderstand what you read in a book, it's quite possible you skip a line, you forget to read a particular word, isn't it so you
don't see it, you skip a page, you miss a bed, you just didn't find it. But when you understand from a teacher, when you learn from a teacher, it's much more safe. However, when it comes to learning from a teacher, a person must be very careful, where he's learning from who he is learning from, a person must be careful, meaning that just because he's found a lecture or recording, just because he's found a person who's teaching doesn't mean you just go and start learning everything from them. A person must be careful who he is gaining his Deen from, there are many things that must be checked. First of all, they're afraid of the teacher, because remember that there isn't especially
that of the dean is not taught without Arpita meaning the beliefs are mixed into that knowledge as that knowledge is taught along with that or clida is also taught. And we want to make sure that our data is correct. So the person whom we are learning from, we should be sure about their correct arcada. Secondly, we should also see the Dean of the person, the Dean of the person that is adjust knowledge, or is it also Dean, is it just information or is there also something of relevance? The second way of retaining knowledge is through keytab. Through a book, what does it mean by that, that a person finds a book and he reads it he studies that book. However, when a person is getting
knowledge from a book, he
must pay a lot of attention. And he must be also very, very careful. And it's best that he studies a book under the supervision of a teacher. Why? Because of a person reads only, it's quite possible. He has misunderstood what the author is saying.
Or the author has mentioned only one point, he's left out some other points are, it's quite possible that the author has mentioned something that was proven wrong later. So it's necessary that a person when he reads a book, when he studies a book as well, that should be done with great attention and care and preferably under the supervision of a teacher. And it is said that the one whose source of knowledge whose evidence is only a book, then his errors, his mistakes are greater, they are more than his being right. That he is more prone to making errors, then being right. book knowledge is not sufficient. It's imperative. It's very, very important. that knowledge is learned from a
teacher. Because we see that a lot of panel data he did not just send the kita he also Center, a limb, yet lower limb IoT. Why use a king where you are Lima homolka tava one hikmah. You are lemuel kita? Well, hikmah. So when we are learning, yes, we benefit from books. But at the same time, we should also be in the right environment, where we can ask questions from a teacher, where he can clarify matters to us where he can correct our thinking. Because if we're self.if we're just teaching ourselves from books, then it's quite possible that we learn incorrectly or our knowledge is incomplete. Thirdly, the third way of acquiring knowledge is through our Milan matures. What does
that mean, through the AMA? actions that are very popular observation, just observing what other people do? What does it mean by that? that a person does not study from a book, he doesn't study from a teacher? He just looks at other people, what are they doing? Okay, whatever they're doing, I'll do that as well. That is his evidence. His source of knowledge is what there are the common people. And this is the worst way of gaining knowledge. Why? Because just because you see somebody doing something doesn't mean it is right, doesn't mean it is the best way. If you are looking at someone who is learned who is knowledgeable, then definitely you can learn from their manners, you
can learn from their etiquette, you can learn from their actions as well, because you can ask them Oh, why did you do this and this, however, just observing the common people, the masses is not the way of learning the deed. For example, if a person is asked, Why are you praying? This is what we Muslims do? We pray? Okay, we pray five times a day, why five times a day, because this is what we Muslims do. Okay, how many records? Do you pray for budget default? Why this is what we Muslims do mean? I don't know what the evidence is. No, knowledge has to be learned from a teacher as well as from a book. And just by observing the common masses observing the people, this is not sufficient.
And we see over here that Mr. Bahari, he writes a separate chapter on this other in makabayan colleyville armor, that knowledge comes before speech and actions, meaning you have to acquire knowledge and then you talk and then you act, because if a person speaks without knowledge, act without knowledge, then what's going to happen, he is going to make mistakes.
And whatever he's doing whatever he's saying is based on what perhaps just assumption and we learn in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says about the Bani Israel that woman whom ami Yun layer Allah mono kita Illa Amani, in whom Allah
and this is something that is blameworthy meaning a person is guilty if he has the opportunity to learn and he does not learn and he goes on speaking without knowledge. So when we convey meaning speak to convey when we act on something, we must base it on what knowledge knowledge comes first and then comes action and apply o'clock Good luck you know having respect for other people. Any action any I'm on whether it is I'm a little calmer I'm going to listen or I'm going to do it. Any of that can only be done unless and until a person has knowledge and knowledge is acquired through studying with someone reading something. Okay, we will conclude over here inshallah sabbatical long
will be home they're gonna share the Word La Ilaha. illa Anta nest of Luca wanna to be like assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
