Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

00:00:04--> 00:00:18

solidaridad a Sunni and karimabad feroza Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. Rubbish finally acidity were Sidley mg. teta melissani of Cabo Kohli. of Vanessa dinar edema

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

inshallah of works well. So Gennaro will begin from bat number 51.

00:00:24--> 00:00:43

Bab in Nigerian emammal. The term maybe the Imam is appointed in order to be followed dum, dum ma almost basically to follow someone so you know, meaning he is taken as an email meaning he is followed. So what's the role of the Imam?

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

What's the purpose of having an email just to have someone recite beautifully in prayer

00:00:51--> 00:01:37

to lead? So that means that the people who are praying behind him What should they do? They have to follow him. The man is not just a person standing in the front he is actually meant to be followed. And if he's not being followed, then the purpose of having an Imam is not being fulfilled. So the purpose is the objective is the movie. Now not just over here Do you realize from what Joe and Jarl is to make right to a point and remember that in the Quran, we read this word over and over again. So for example, in total cough, in Niger, Allah, ma lllt, Zenith Allah, right. And over here, we see that email is jurina. So there's two types of jobs. One kind of journal is county and the other type

00:01:37--> 00:02:26

of journal is shuttering county meaning what Allah soprano data has made. So for example, the earth He has made it as in a journal Ma, LD, Xena, de la, whatever is on the earth, it is Xena. And the second type of journal is shuttering meaning when something is made as an appointed in religion, all right. So what does that mean that it has to be observed, that matter has to be taken seriously. So over here we see that the Imam is appointed, meaning we must take his appointment seriously, we have to fulfill the purpose of having the Imam and what is that that he is to be followed, and an Imam, he will only be a man when two matters are fulfilled, first of all, that he is followed. So

00:02:26--> 00:03:16

basically, an Imam is an Imam when he has been followed. And following the Imam means that performing the action, right after the Imam performs the action, not along with him, not before him, and not much after him, there should not be a long, you know, break in the middle. So for example, the Imam is leading the people in prayer. And he says that that lead in order to go down to recover. So the people who are following him, how are they supposed to follow him? As soon as he says Allahu Akbar, and he goes down into the core, then what should the people do immediately go down into ru core, they should not go into the core as soon as they hear. Because this is what happens. Sometimes

00:03:16--> 00:03:59

the Imam has barely said a lot of other people are already in luchar. Or he ends the sutra and he hasn't even said Allahu Akbar yet. And people go down. So before the Imam, likewise, they see the Imam going people who were standing right behind the man, he hasn't actually said Allahu Akbar, and they perform the action. Along with him. This is also not correct. And sometimes what happens, the Imam says Allah, hopefully he goes down into the core, and the people are still finishing off their solo. And the man is getting up from record, and then they're going down into the court. Is that following the man? No. So remember three things over here. The action must be performed after the

00:03:59--> 00:04:43

man and that means Firstly, not before. Secondly, not along with the email. And thirdly, not much after him either. All right. Okay. So this is what is meant by following the email. And secondly, a man will be mmm when, when he is in the same time and place in the sense that you can't have a recording on on YouTube and follow the amount of the huddle. Okay, in uniflow prayer, no. Likewise, you can't have it being live streamed from the home, let's say on your television and you're following in North America in your home. No, it has to be mobile Shara meaning direct, physically there meaning same time and same place also. So this is who an email is and when the Imam is there,

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

is leading the prayer then the people must follow him. Well, Salah Nabeel sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Murphy Murali he and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he prayed in his model in his illness which illness led to a fee a fee in which he passed away

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

vanessi with the people meaning he led the people in prayer. What why journalisten while he was sitting, and the people were praying behind him, but the prophets that a lot of them was sitting, and how were the people praying behind him standing. So were they following him then.

00:05:18--> 00:05:54

Because earlier, another occasion was in his lifetime, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had some injury on his leg, he was not able to stand and lead the people in prayer. So he was sitting down and the people were praying behind him standing and after the prayer, he told them that when the Imam is sitting, you must also sit and pray behind him in the same way. So from that, it shows that if the Imam is sitting and leading the people in prayer, then the people must also do the same. And over here, we see that at the end of his life, what happened he was sitting and leading, and the rest of the people were standing. So this is understood in two ways. There is a difference of

00:05:54--> 00:06:33

opinion concerning this matter. Some scholars, they said that if the Imam is sitting and leading than the people must also do that they must also sit and pray behind him, because in the majority of Imam, Luka, he has to be followed in action. Right. And they take their the lead as the earlier occasion in the lifetime of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And this incident which happened at the end of his life, they said, this is an exceptional case. And that's exactly why when Buhari is mentioning over here, this was an exceptional case, because the people had started their prayer behind who Abu Bakar of Lula Warren who, all right, and they had started the prayer while standing.

00:06:33--> 00:06:45

So they were to complete the prayer standing as well. All right, even though the prophet SAW a lot of time was sitting, but the people had started the prayer standing. So this is why they would continue their prayer as they had started.

00:06:47--> 00:07:12

But other scholars have said that this last action of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam this abrogated his initial instruction. So there is a difference of opinion concerning this matter, some orlimar. They say that if the man is sitting, and the people must also sit and pray behind him and others say that no, if the man is sitting, he has a reason behind that, because he is ill, but the other people are not so they're not obliged to sit down. Anyway, there is a Philip in this Willa, who

00:07:14--> 00:07:21

will call up numerous Rudin, even miss Rotolo and who said either Roth IRA when he, when he gets up,

00:07:22--> 00:07:31

before the Imam who, who gets up before the mean, the one who is following the email, what will you do? Yeah, oh, he will return

00:07:32--> 00:08:20

famco so and then he will stay before three, for as long as mafara that he had raised he had gotten up. So my atterberry email, then you will follow the human. What does this mean? That if a person is praying behind the Imam, and out of law, or out of forgetfulness, or misunderstanding what happens, he gets up, and he realizes that the man was still in such them. So for example, the person is in touch with the man, he thought he heard a low Aqua, or you know, some people autopilot. So as soon as he finished his car, he didn't realize the man was not at a level yet. He just got up. And then he realized none of the rest of the people are sitting says I should be incited. So what should he

00:08:20--> 00:08:34

do? He should do, he should return, Go back. Go back to following the email. All right. And even Massoud said that he will stay in that position. How long

00:08:35--> 00:09:18

the amount that he missed out. So for example, that your Amazon search does too. And he just got up. And he got up for like, two seconds, he went back immediately. So he will stay in such that for how long? Two seconds at least. Alright, and then when the man says a lot what but he will follow. So let's say he was standing for five seconds. He got up and he's like, what's going on? Why isn't everybody standing? Then he realizes the medicine and says, so he goes back, but it's a long time. Now if he stays and says that for a long time, and the man will says a lot of work, but then again, he's not following the email. Correct. So what do we understand then? That he he will return and

00:09:18--> 00:09:40

follow the man. So if the man gets up after two seconds, he will get him after two seconds. If the man gets back for 10 seconds, he will get back to 10 seconds regardless of how long he stayed. He has to now follow who the man but basically, if a person accidentally goes ahead of the email, then what's the ruling? He has to go back?

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

So he has to return and follow the email.

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

All right, well, Allah has no and hasn't said Freeman concerning the one who? Yo Kuru. He performs rocor maral. Mme with the Imam look are they need to blocker, Yoko meaning he performs to the girl with the image

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

Whether you're on the road to God, and he was not able to do such that he performed to the car with the Imam.

00:10:09--> 00:10:13

But what happened, he was not able to perform the search the why was not able to perform such that

00:10:15--> 00:10:54

they, for example, that your mind was leading the people in prayer, right, he goes down into such detail, and the person is following him, he's trying to go into such depth. But sometimes it happens that a person is he's got, you know, a physical illness or something. And because of that, he just gets stuck somewhere in the middle, not able to go forwards not able to stand back up. So the person just sits down. And by the time you sit down, what happens is the Imam is already up from such them. So did he not miss it, the aim is to set you understand. Likewise, the Imam went into such depth, and the person is just standing there, how often it may happen. He doesn't realize, and then when he

00:10:54--> 00:11:37

hears them loud, a lot of work. But he realized everybody's getting up from such the Where was he completely missed it. All right. Likewise, sometimes it may happen that there are so many people, so many people, that you're trying to go into such the but there's literally no room. And by the time you squeeze yourself somewhere down, what happens? Is the members already up. Now, should you go into such detail or should you follow the email? There's a problem over here. So in this process, what happens a person such that gets missed completely? Now if he did not perform such that? Is this going to be valid? It is aka is not complete? So now what should you do? Should he forget about

00:11:37--> 00:12:21

following the Imam and make a search the and then quickly catch up with the email? No, what will he do? He will yes to the liver cartel karate site for the last rocker, this person will perform the to such that so my ugly look are the olabisi God, then he will complete the first rocker with with its sajida. In other words, what he will do is that he has to continue to follow the email. Even if he has missed a broken Uppsala. What will you do continue to follow the email. And then when the Imam ends the prayer, then what will this person do? Get up and make up whatever he has missed?

00:12:23--> 00:12:28

What does this show how important it is to follow the email?

00:12:30--> 00:12:40

You forgot you were out of it. You didn't get a chance you missed something for whatever reason. You still have to follow the email and whatever you've missed, make it up after.

00:12:43--> 00:12:44

Obviously,

00:12:45--> 00:13:03

we're FEMA nesea. Such debt then had the farmer Yes, you do with FEMA? And concerning the one who nesina such that then forgot, is it the Hata farmer until you stood then what will you do? Yesterday he will have to do research. So for example,

00:13:04--> 00:13:05

after the Imam

00:13:07--> 00:13:53

got up from Saturday, they got it from Saturday. All right between the two sides that he's sitting behind the Imam and Eman says Allahu Akbar to go back into the second century and this person gets up stands up. Okay. So in a way he forgot this. All right. And he forgot it until when her Docomo when he stood up, he realized I forgot to do my son behind the email. So then what will you do? Yes, Judo, he will do such meaning he will return and do such the same thing, he will follow the Imam. Alright. And this is obviously when the Imam is insensitive. But if the man has already gotten up, you understand if the man has already gotten up from the search the and has started the second

00:13:53--> 00:14:16

record, and then a person realizes I didn't perform my second surgery. Now what is he going to do? He's going to end the prayer and then make up whatever he missed. So basically, from all of these statements that are mentioned over here, what do we understand that if for whatever reason, a person misses out on ruku on such the under major broken Uppsala,

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

then and if he's able to join the email, he will go back immediately.

00:14:24--> 00:14:34

And start to follow the email. But if it's too late, if it's too late, and when is it too late? When the man has already performed that broken, then what is he going to do?

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

He'll have to wait until the end of the prayer. He's not going to put on hold the prayer of the Imam and complete his prayer in the middle. No, he can't do that he has to follow the email. So essentially, what is it that we learn the importance of following that? You miss something, go back and follow the man immediately if it's too late. Continue to follow the Imam and make up whatever you

00:15:00--> 00:15:33

Missed afterwards had the center another new unit Carla had done as Ada to our new subnet, a big shutter and obey the lack of network delay him the earth better. Follow the Husqvarna shutter purple to allow to have this in here and morally Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said I came to Arusha Boulevard and asked her. Could you please tell me about the illness of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam in which illness in which he passed away? pilot Bella she said of course, circle and abeles Allahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:15:34--> 00:16:25

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he fell ill and subpolar means to feel heavy so it really weighed down on him for Karla so he said a solid Nestle. Have the people prayed panella we said no homie until we Luna They are waiting for you. Allah He said laroux Lima and fill me up. But water for me in the container pilot for foreigner. So we did it for this Allah. Then he washed up for the Hubba Leah new for Overmyer la he. So what happened? He, he he tried to get up after washing up. He tried to get up but what happened for only Our Lady, he passed out. He felt unconscious, meaning he was not able to proceed and this is after washing up after a

00:16:26--> 00:16:33

summer of alcohol. Then after some time what happened of alcohol he regained consciousness bacala sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:16:35--> 00:17:19

He asked when he got up, have the people prayed. Polina homeand Luna Kiara Salama? We said no they're waiting for you or messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam final baru, Lima and Bob again, he has put water for me in a container audit for Florida for the seller. Then again, he got up and he sat down and he washed himself the medallion Uber, for all merely he tried to get up. But then again, he was overcome by faintness, some Falco for Karla. Then when he regained consciousness again, he said our solidness of the people prayed for nyla whom he until later okay rasulillah No, they're still waiting for you for Karla LaRue Lima and filming.

00:17:22--> 00:17:57

But water for me in the container for car the felt the seller, some other hubballi a new for old Mia and he again, he washed up tried to get up. But he fell unconscious again, some of our color of sullenness. Again when he regained consciousness he has had the people prayed for cornella who mentally Luna Kayla Sula, LA, they're waiting for you. When NASA ruku from Villa Masjid and the people were removing the mustard ruco fish from

00:17:58--> 00:18:41

Erica calf is also from the same root tray. And what does it mean to just stay in the masjid? So they were just waiting in the masjid not going away, waiting patiently. ruco funfilled Masjid en de Luna nebia alayhis salam they were waiting for the Prophet sallallahu celemony solitary Shayla waiting for the prayer of Russia after the last one being the last one of the day. For Arsalan abuse Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam Illa Abbey, Brooklyn v au salia banasthali sent were tobacco that he should lead the people in prayer for Adela, Sulu, for Karla. So our soul over here means the messenger of the prophets of Allah has no meaning the one with whom he sent a message to him. So he

00:18:41--> 00:19:17

said in the Rasulullah sallallahu, and you send them your moroka and to suddenly Urbanus, he said, Well, welcome to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam wants you to lead the people in prayer for Kala Abu Bakr in what kind of Roger undertaken and Rebecca said, and he was a very soft hearted man. Yeah, Roma Sullivan nurse abubaker said to her mother will learn who you lead the people in prayer for Carla who model and how could be learned are much lower and who said no, you are more deserving of this for Salah Abu Bakr in tickle I am so you see over here what's happening the other nations we learned that the prophet SAW the laws and and he said

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

welcome, but I shall build over on her. She tried to prevent that from happening, because she knew that how her father was and we see that Abu bocadillo on one on the other hand also was quite hesitant. But whatever our last panel data once it ultimately happens.

00:19:37--> 00:19:59

So then what happened for some level Bucklin telco am Abubakar oh and who he led the people in prayer all these days meaning whenever the prophets of Allah was and was not able to come to the masjid and lead the people who would be the Imam, Abu Bakar for every prayer, some Indian abeles Allahu alayhi wa sallam were dumb enough to save button. So then one day he found in himself

00:20:00--> 00:20:15

fat and likeness, meaning he founded him in himself some strength for Harada bainer Delaney how the human are best useful actually so for selected over what happened the prophets of Allah Islam came between two men meaning taking their help. And one of those two men was Who

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

was he?

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

No, no one of them was who what's mentioned over here and our best, our best little neuron, what can you say? livingness and abubaker was leading the people in prayer Fela model Abu Bakr in the heavily at a hora boubakeur when he saw the prophet SAW a lot of them coming the heavily at 100 he wanted to move back for oma 11 abuse or the Mongolian Columbia later the Prophet Solomon some gesture to him that no don't do that. Stay where you are color, at least any Illa Giambi and he said, make me sit next to Abubakar for Angela Salah Giambi, epi Bucklin, so the two men they help the prophets of Allah Islam sit next to Abu Bakar Allah Jalla wa couldn't use a live demo before Latin abuse on

00:21:00--> 00:21:14

Allahu alayhi wa sallam. So Abu Bakar he continued with his prayer, but he was following the Salah of who the prophet SAW the loudness and and when NASA just wanted to be Bucklin and the people were following the prayer of Abu Bakar

00:21:15--> 00:21:52

when abuse or the locker use Allah and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was sitting father obey the law for the hunter Allah or delayed near Besson for pull to the hook. So obey the law said I came to have delivered our best and I said to him, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Muhammad, the big shadow, should I tell you about what I should have learned her told me and muddled in to be sort of awkward to send them about the disease, the illness of the prophets of autism quality? He said, Sure, come, meaning Tell me for a lot too early. He had he said. So he said, I told even our best about what I should have told me from an uncommon who she said he did not reject anything from it, meaning he

00:21:52--> 00:22:07

confirmed that yes, what Ayesha has told you is absolutely true. Later under who Carla a somewhat like a modular lady can Amal our Bessie? Did she tell you about the name of the man who was with our best staking the Prophet sallallahu send him to the motion controller?

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

He said no.

00:22:10--> 00:22:12

He said that was a little bit odd.

00:22:13--> 00:22:36

So anyway, in this Hadees, we see that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he was the Imam over here when he joined the people in prayer. And Abu Bakar followed the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the people followed Who? Abu Bakr. So the Imam is appointed why in order to be followed. And if the Imam is not being followed, and that defeats the purpose of

00:22:38--> 00:22:49

defeats the purpose of having the Imam right. Then we also see over here that an amazing thing about the companions that they waited in the masjid for so long.

00:22:50--> 00:23:06

ruku they didn't just go home. And they didn't say oh, well, the prophets of Allah, Islam is not feeling well for somebody, you know, just lead the people in prayer. They didn't just appoint an email from amongst themselves, they waited for the proper suppliers.

00:23:07--> 00:23:14

And it took so long just imagine this whole incident that's described over here It must have taken at least an hour, if not more.

00:23:16--> 00:23:33

the patience of the people, the how they're waiting patiently, and imagine what they must be going through also knowing that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is unwell, and that he has fainted so many times. And it also shows that how the prophets Allah is and it was so conscious about the prayer.

00:23:34--> 00:23:47

Exactly. Every time he regained consciousness, this was his question, have the people prayed? They're waiting for me, okay, get water, try to wash himself up and get up in order to go, but he didn't have the strength,

00:23:49--> 00:23:55

the life of the province that allows him as an example for us, you see that even the last moments of the prophets of

00:23:56--> 00:24:13

the last days, he's concerned about the people have they prayed, they must be waiting for me. And what happens if we have an appointment somewhere, somebody is waiting for us and we are ill or something we don't even show up. Or we don't even inform the other person, or we don't care about them.

00:24:14--> 00:24:22

This concern for the people, that he was not focused on himself and his pain and his illness, but he was concerned about the people.

00:24:23--> 00:24:40

That when a person is sick, every time they gain some consciousness or some strength, they ask about Did anyone call? Did anyone come to visit me? Who is thinking about me? And we see over here that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was thinking about others. And we see

00:24:41--> 00:24:59

the same thing. When he was stabbed in the masjid. He was also concerned about the well being of people and the Sunnah of the people. Right? And we see this, that this message that the Sahaba understood very clearly the importance of prayer. And we see over here that the companions didn't just appoint an Imam either

00:25:00--> 00:25:31

They knew that the profit or loss was there, we see that at another occasion he was traveling, he was not in Medina. And that is a reason why the event, asked avacado Mourinho to lead the people. But over here we see the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was present. Right. But he was unwell. So they didn't appoint an email from among themselves. And this teaches us an important, you know, guidance with regards to a particular matter, which is that the appointed man, when he

00:25:32--> 00:25:44

does not come for the prayer, in the sense that the time for the prayer has entered, everybody has gathered, and the Imam knows he should be present, but he is not there. So what should the people do?

00:25:45--> 00:26:30

What should the people do? Okay, they wait for him. Let's say they've waited for half an hour, should they keep waiting? What should they do? You see, there's different situations, one is that led to the Imam has informed the congregation that if ever I am not able to make it, then such and such person should lead the people in prayer, right. And typically, this happens that any person in authority, he makes it clear to the rest of the people that if ever I am not able to make it, then he is the go to person, he is going to lead the people, all right. So even bill McCall, if he has said it verbally, very clearly he has given this instruction, that such and such should be the

00:26:30--> 00:26:39

email, then what will happen when the member is not sure that person will? What will he do? He will step up and lead the people in prayer. Okay.

00:26:40--> 00:26:43

But let's say he has not appointed anyone.

00:26:45--> 00:27:02

Understand he has not appointed anyone that in my absence, this person should be the email, then what should they do? If the people know that the man will not mind? If we appoint so and so as the email that such and such person leads to people in prayer? Then what will they do?

00:27:03--> 00:27:48

That person they will ask him to lead them because they know that the man will not have any objection towards this? This is what even Bill had. They know that the man will not have a problem if the sun leads the people in prayer. All right. But let's say there is no even meaning neither with her nor with McConnell, in the sense that he has never said explicitly as to who should lead the people in prayer, and they have a feeling that the man was quite possessive about his role. And it happens, right? He's quite strict about it. He doesn't just let anybody you know, come forward and lead the people in prayer. So then what will they do? They will wait for him. And they will call

00:27:48--> 00:28:20

him if they know where he is. And if he's not able to make it, then he they will take his permission. Okay. But if let's say he is far, they can't find him, they cannot get in touch with him. And they have a feeling that if he finds out that somebody else, let the people in very, he's going to be upset. So then what are they going to do the prayers getting delayed, but the members are coming, they can't find him, they can't get in touch with him or he's too far. Then in that situation, somebody will be appointed in order to lead the people in prayer, because this is a necessity.

00:28:21--> 00:29:07

So you understand, if the Imam has appointed someone, he will get up and lead the people in prayer. If the man has not appointed someone, but it is clear that he will not mind then the person will come and lead the people in prayer. If neither of these options are there, then they have to wait. But if waiting is a problem, then just anybody will come because this is a little, you might think that all the time is taking the salad very casually. He should be there on time. It says responsibility, people are waiting for him. The fact is that the Imam is who generally someone who has knowledge, right who's like a, you know, a figurehead. So people, they need him, and which is

00:29:07--> 00:29:32

why the Imam is usually quite busy. And sometimes he's engaged in very urgent matters that require his attention. And it and because of that, people might get delayed for some time. Right? So the people must have patience towards the email. Now we see that once the prophets of Allah sent him he got up in order to lead the people in prayer. And what happened? A man pulled him aside and started talking to him.

00:29:33--> 00:29:46

Remember, started talking to him and the people are waiting and waiting and some people even fell asleep. And this happened not once but multiple times in the lifetime the prophets a lot is on them. And we really need to appreciate the effort of the email.

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

Sometimes it happens that the man was on his way, but a phone call and somebody is going through a divorce, you know, or something very serious is happening in their life and they need urgent answers.

00:30:00--> 00:30:11

If the man says no, no, wait for 15 minutes, I'll call you back. It might be too late. Right? Or the other person is so distressed. And the mom says, Well, I know you're very upset, and you're crying right now. But I'm busy. He couldn't do that.

00:30:13--> 00:30:44

So what do we learn over here that the people, first of all must have patience, and wait for the email. And if the Imam sees that this is something regular, there's something that is happening quite often, and the people are getting affected, that he should appoint someone who can give the man who can lead the people in prayer in his absence. And this is exactly what the prophet sallallahu Sallam did, that when he was not able to make it and the people were waiting for so long. He didn't have the wait for the whole night. He sent word to boubakeur that you lead the people in prayer.

00:30:45--> 00:30:47

Because Salah is an example for us, right?

00:30:48--> 00:31:30

It's an example for us. So this teaches us that if a person is the in charge of a particular matter, then they have to be consulted with regards to that matter. I mean, you can't just take things in your hand and say, Oh, well, they're not here. So I'm just going to make a decision myself, you can't do that. If they're the person in authority, you cannot make a decision yourself until you have consulted them. All right. And if you know that they will not have a problem with you consulting somebody else for that issue in their absence, then go ahead and do it. But if you know that this is not acceptable, then you cannot go ahead except with their permission. All right. And

00:31:30--> 00:31:49

it also shows that if there is a person in authority, and they're not able to make themselves available to the people, when the people need them and they must make it clear to the people as to who they should go to in times of need. Meaning roles should be clearly you know, put before others so that people are not in confusion.

00:31:50--> 00:32:33

Have the sun are below him the use of color of modern America and you show him your own weather and a be here on our own with me Nina and her pardot Salah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Murphy Beatty what was shocking for prophets Allah December from the prayer in his house while he was sick, he was unwell for solid jellison so he prayed city was salovaara who Omen pm and and the people prayed behind him how standing so he was sitting and they were standing for a shadow he lay him and he soon so he gestured toward them that sit down because I'm sitting so you should also be sitting filamin sofa and when he ended the prayer kata he said in the majority, amen. Leave them maybe the

00:32:33--> 00:32:51

Imam is appointed in order to be followed. For either locker for Kuru will either refer for Pharaoh, then when he goes into the core, then you're going to record and when he gets up, then you should get at what he does select jellison for Lou, you loosen, when you pray sitting, then you should also pray, sitting.

00:32:52--> 00:33:29

Now we discussed this earlier that this happened at earlier in the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. But his last action was what that he prayed sitting while the people were standing. And I mentioned to you that if the love that exists among the scholars had doesn't have to lie in the use of color of boron, Amharic anybody should have been or an NSF numerical analysis Allah Allah is Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam, but akima father son, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he said on a horse and what happened for Sudhir on who he fell off from it for Jewish worship, a man and his right side was grazed meaning the skin was wounded

00:33:30--> 00:34:13

for Salah Salatin, Minnesota where it will carry them then he prayed one of the prayers while he was sitting for Selena wha Hawker Odin and we prayed behind him sitting also phenomenon sort of a call. When he ended the prayer he said in the material Mmm, you can maybe the man is appointed in order to be followed for either solo or even for solo piano and when he prays standing then you should also pray standing behind him for either locker for car when he goes into the court then you do cordwainer offer for when he gets up from record or such that then you should get up with a policy or lovely man hamidah for Polo or a banana callaham meaning in actions and in the words, we should

00:34:13--> 00:34:59

follow the Imam not that the Imam is still saying Allahu Akbar. And we go into such that and we start saying subpanel a bit earnest handle the learner. Let the Imam finish what he's saying. All right. Likewise, in in sort of the Fatiha what happens, the man has not even said I mean yet, but the people start saying I mean, right. And how these What do we learn when the man says I mean, then say I mean, right? Because a man has to be followed in words and inactions. So when he finishes saying some you're a lovely man hamidah then you should say Robin Elena can handle it has an apartment for Saluki, M and what else Allah jellison for solo, do loosen edge Maroon if he prays

00:34:59--> 00:35:00

while standing

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

Then you should also pray standing and if he prays while sitting then you should all sit down as well. Honorable Abdullah Abdullah meaning Buhari, he said Colin, who maybe you can maybe his teacher he said cola who either Salah jellison for salute you loosen the statement the prophets of aloneness and then when the Imam sits and praise then you should also sit down who were fee model the hill khadim and her meeting explained that this was when fee model the HIPAA Diem. This was in his earlier illness, so masala BARDA that he can abuse or de la hora and he will send them a jellison then after that, in the end of his life, what happened? He prayed, sitting when NASA called for who

00:35:40--> 00:36:04

I am, and and the people were standing behind him lemmya more humble Kuru. At that occasion, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not instruct the people to sit down in the minute huddle bill FET. He said that the ruling will be taken from what from the last action of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam fell at him in fairly NIMBYs on a locker and he was alone. And that is from the action of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.

00:36:05--> 00:36:37

So they said that the last action has to be followed that matter, yes, Judo manhole fell Imam. Now this is clear that you have to follow the email. But now the question is that when exactly so for example, the Imam goes into such that. When are you supposed to go down into such the mother? Yes, Judo, when should he go into sajida? home and hopefully man, the one who is behind the email? Because you see, many times it happens. You're standing behind the Imam. He says Allahu Akbar.

00:36:38--> 00:37:03

So should you start going down into such that as soon as you hear him saying, Allah, right? Or you should you wait for him to complete his statement? Allahu Akbar, and then go into such that you understand? And how long should you wait? So this is a matter of confusion because you don't want to go into such depth before the email. You have to follow him. So when exactly do you do that?

00:37:05--> 00:37:20

Carla Anderson, and also that our newest said for either sajida when he does set the first Judo then go into setup. What does this mean? That when the Imam goes down into such them?

00:37:21--> 00:37:45

In other words, we have to follow the action, not the word over here. What's the word? Allahu Akbar? What's the action going down to such though okay. So, when the Imam sajida meaning what Salah it has to do he has gone down onto the ground and he has gone down into such that you understand? Not that he is on his way down.

00:37:46--> 00:38:02

You see, when from from standing position to sajida Okay, the man says Allahu Akbar and then he starts going down, then he reaches the ground and then he puts his head on the ground. So, then he has reached the sector, when are you supposed to do it?

00:38:03--> 00:38:17

When he reaches the ground, and he has begun his search, the search there begins from when, when you start going down? No, it begins from when, when you go into the position of such,

00:38:18--> 00:38:26

okay. So when the man goes into the position of such the, when he was on it, it has to do, then you begin going down?

00:38:27--> 00:38:31

Not when he begins, but when he is in such a

00:38:33--> 00:38:47

good question. This is only possible when a person is behind the Imam can see the email. What if a person is standing in a third fourth row, or it's the women, then in that case, what will happen you can't see the action. Then when you cannot see the action, then you have to follow the word.

00:38:48--> 00:39:03

And when will you follow the word when he has completed saying Allahu Akbar, it happens at for example, the man says, Allahu Akbar, and as he saying Allahu Akbar, he is going down. But by the time that he ends, saying Allahu Akbar, you will assume that he is in the position of such that

00:39:05--> 00:39:21

they go very quickly. So the Imam should be considered over here also in the sense that when he knows that there is a big congregation behind him, and people cannot see him, then he should say, Allahu Akbar, when when he's almost halfway down, so that people don't end up in such there before him by accident.

00:39:22--> 00:39:52

Then you wait until they finish saying Allahu Akbar, even if it takes five seconds. You wait until they're done saying, then you will start your action. Okay? Because it's a very serious matter doing such that before the man is quite serious. Had the thermal southern Colorado scenario happen sir Eden and sufian are ahead does any help Allah had that any of the live music, but I had to borrow wahoo a little cuckoo, he said, and he is Heroku What does ledo mean? He's not

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

a liar. He's not a liar, meaning he is truthful in this narration. He was not lying when he said that

00:40:01--> 00:40:30

And who? Bara? Well, I've been as a companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So remember that the companions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they did not lie. So whatever they said about the Prophet sallallahu said about the religion we have to accept it. Well who will hadal Kudu Allah can have a sort of lives on Allahu alayhi wa sallam either call or semir Allah will even hamidah when he would say some your lovely when Hermida lemmya honey ahead of Minerva, row

00:40:32--> 00:40:44

lemmya honey, he would not bend ahead on anyone Mina from us. lodo is back. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is saying semi Elohim and hamidah This is when

00:40:46--> 00:41:27

when when getting up from record, right. So he said none of us would would bend his back. In other words, some of your Elohim and Hamida and then after that, what does the man do? He says a lot of open goes into sajida. Right? So basically he's talking about the getting up from rocor. And then going into sajida. He said that none of us would bend his back had the yakar and abuse Allah who already was Allah Messiah didn't, until the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would have gone into such them. So in other words, when he said something out loud, even hamidah got it from rocor. Alright, and then it's understood that in order to go into such that, what would he say? Allahu Akbar, none

00:41:27--> 00:41:35

of us would bend his back even until the prophets of Islam had gone into frustration completely.

00:41:36--> 00:41:54

You understand? So, when the prophet SAW the walls and went into prostration completely, then they would bend their back in order to go down into such them. So, what is it true? We cannot start going down into such the until the email is inside the

00:41:55--> 00:42:01

you understand until the Imam is in such that we cannot begin to go down into such

00:42:02--> 00:42:09

some manner Caruso, juden BARDA who then we would go into such that when bar the hook after him

00:42:11--> 00:42:22

here. So what does it show that whether it is going to such that or it is any other action of prayer? When is a person to follow the Imam

00:42:23--> 00:42:25

when when the man

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

is

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

not starts going into action, but he begins that action in the action. Okay. Because there's a lot of transition in prayer, right? Getting up going down. So remember the statement?

00:42:44--> 00:42:55

lamb Yeah, honey, I had a min Navajo who had daikon abuse on a lot of radios and lemme say to them, when you would be in frustration completely, then we would begin going down?

00:42:57--> 00:43:10

How does an apple nor Amun and Sophia and OB is how can I be held back if women refer out so publicly man, the sin of the one who raises his head, public demand before the

00:43:12--> 00:43:49

meaning from the Saturday, he gets it from Saturday before the email, he goes into such that before the email? In other words, he's not really following the Imam. Okay, he's just, you know, trying to get ahead of the Imam. He's not giving any importance to the Imam. This is why he's this regarding whether the Imam has done something or not yet. So is this a sin? Yes, it's a sin isn't? It's a sin. Why? Because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam warned of the punishment for this, and remember, that when there is a punishment mentioned for an action, then that action is what?

00:43:51--> 00:43:53

What kind of a sin is it? It's a major sin.

00:43:54--> 00:44:04

What are the signs of a major sin? That there is punishment for it? Or a threat of punishment were in the hereafter. Right? So

00:44:05--> 00:44:23

it is a sin because the Prophet sallallahu Sallam warned against it with a possible punishment. had done a hijab Newman had in Colorado, Santa Sherpa, and Mohammed amusia. Similar to about hudaydah I'm gonna be sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon the profits of a lot of them said Mr. yaksha. A haidakhan.

00:44:24--> 00:44:41

Doesn't he fear? How do kumana view ole OSHA arducam such people fear Don't they have any fear? Either refer out so public email me when he raises his head before the email and enter the login so hold on a second imagine

00:44:42--> 00:44:59

that a lot will make his head like that or donkey. A we enter on a law who sort of the who sort of the human or that Allah will make his appearance like that of a donkey doesn't have fear of a low and he's getting up before the man trying to get ahead of the man

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

A lot will make his head like that of a donkey or his entire appearance like that of a dunk.

00:45:06--> 00:45:08

So this is a possible punishment.

00:45:09--> 00:45:29

So what is the truth that it's a sin to disregard the man. Now if it happens by accident, forgetfulness, we learned about that earlier. That's a different case, right? that a person, he will immediately go back and follow the email. But this is doing so deliberately disregarding the email.

00:45:30--> 00:45:42

So, in this case, remember, this is a sin. And there's something very serious and notice over here, that the punishment that is mentioned is what being made like a donkey.

00:45:43--> 00:45:44

Why? Why a donkey?

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

If you think about why a donkey, what does a donkey signify? What?

00:45:52--> 00:45:53

stupidity

00:45:54--> 00:45:58

right? That he's not using his mind, basically,

00:45:59--> 00:46:14

he's, and this is what happens that a person thinks, well, you know what, quickly quickly, as if they're trying to rush the man by moving quickly. But this is not intelligence, this is foolishness rushing through the prayer in this manner, and disregarding the email completely.

00:46:16--> 00:46:30

Following the Imam, following the my means remember those three things that you don't perform the action before the Imam, because that's a major thing. You don't perform the action along with the Imam

00:46:31--> 00:46:49

and you don't perform the action much after the Imam either. It should be immediately after, otherwise you're not following. Sometimes it happens that a person is busy making their own dollars and good, but it should not be in disregard to following the email. You can make your dogs afterwards.

00:46:50--> 00:47:09

Like for example, in the show hood, you are taking your dog, okay. And there's literally, you know, half a sentence left. So you can complete that and then say the center, but if there's still, you know, one or two dogs that you usually say, don't start saying those because that will take more time.

00:47:10--> 00:47:20

You see, it's sort of that there is not finished, if you can quickly finish. Go ahead. But again, if you sit in the first IR or something, then you don't have much time.

00:47:21--> 00:47:29

Bob mm Attila Abdi will Mola the imama have an Arab and Imola who isn't

00:47:30--> 00:47:32

a slave, right? Mom, Luke

00:47:34--> 00:47:34

and Mola

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

a freed slave. He is a free person, but he was previously a slave. So there is

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

still similarity but yet a difference?

00:47:47--> 00:48:01

What Canada do so in honor of such a person meaning can a slave lead free people in China and someone who was previously a slave now he is freed, but yet his status is not like that all the rest of the people

00:48:02--> 00:48:20

unfortunately, but this is the reality that this is how people treat others based on how their past was. So can such a person be the Imam of others? Can he lead them? islamically? Is that okay? or Canada Isha. Do your own Mohammed, Abu do have a question.

00:48:21--> 00:48:30

I shuffled over into her slave, the question would lead her in prayer men must have from the Messiah.

00:48:31--> 00:48:57

Or should I warn her slave? His name was the question. He would lead the center and who will be praying after him? I shall be alone. All right. And he's a slave. And she's a free woman. She's the owner. All right. And he is reading the Quran, from where? From the Messiah, not from his memory, but from the Messiah. So this shows us a couple of things. Firstly, the fact that

00:48:58--> 00:49:03

a slave can lead free people in prayer, even his owners.

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

Okay.

00:49:06--> 00:49:13

Secondly, we see that if a slave can lead people in prayer, then a freed slave, for sure he can.

00:49:14--> 00:49:30

Okay, because if you think about it, his status is slightly higher than that it will slip. Thirdly, we see from this that the Imam Yi can read from the must have in order to lead the people in prayer. There's no harm in that.

00:49:31--> 00:49:47

Okay. But obviously, we know that the person who is most well versed in the Quran, he should be the man. Correct. So when there are people in the congregation who knows the Quran by heart, then they're more deserving of leading.

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

All right, but if let's say there's nobody who knows much Koran, and it's the month of Ramadan, for instance, there's a group of people, let's say, you know, students living in

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

in a in a hostel or something, and there's no Masjid nearby, and they want to put it all together, and none of them is Haffield. But one of them he knows more compared to the others, and his recitation is better. So can he open a must have and read from it and lead others in prayer? Yes, he can do that. There is no harm it. Okay. So the Imam can read from yourself. And if the Imam can refund most have,

00:50:29--> 00:50:51

then that means that a better person can also read himself, you understand? So for example, if a person is praying themselves, so for instance, you want to pray and you don't know certain sources of the Quran, and you want to recite them in prayer. Can you read from the most health? Yes, because if you can lead others like that, that means you can lead yourself also.

00:50:52--> 00:50:53

You understand?

00:50:54--> 00:50:55

Well, what are they?

00:50:56--> 00:51:01

And the son of a bully? Who is bullying a prostitute? In other words,

00:51:02--> 00:51:07

someone who is born of Xena, then, can they be the man?

00:51:08--> 00:51:13

Well, RBG, and Arabi who is a veteran,

00:51:14--> 00:51:42

meaning a veteran can, if let's say he comes to a city, can he lead the people of the city in prayer? This doesn't mean that there is a bias against the veterans. This just means that he's not a resident of that town. All right. So if he is in town, he knows more Koran. Can he lead the people in prayer? Well, Willem, and the boy and Lady lemmya, who has not yet reached the age of puberty,

00:51:44--> 00:51:53

number four, he says all of them can. Why licola NaVi sallallahu alayhi wa salam ala, your own Mohan, Accra, omo liketo,

00:51:54--> 00:52:14

who's going to lead the people in prayer, Accra home Nikita Villa, the one who is most well versed in the main The one who knows more Quran. So if there happens to be a man who is of illegitimate birth, and if and he knows the Quran, and there are other people who are better in their

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

lineage.

00:52:17--> 00:52:38

Can he lead them in prayer? Yes, he can. Because he knows the Quran. On the other hand again, Arabi someone who's visiting from outside, can he lead the residents when he knows more Koran? Yes. And a child? Can he lead the people in prayer? If he knows more Quran, then the adults? Yes, he can.

00:52:40--> 00:52:44

He can be and what's the evidence, just this one statement?

00:52:45--> 00:53:24

What qualifies a person as Imam is what his knowledge of the Book of Allah, not his lineage? Not his age, not his social status? And not his? Not the fact that he is a traveler, or what? And we have learned about the details of all of these matters, that there also has to be some follow. Right? then likewise, a traveler when he's leading the people in prayer, then it has to be within right with permission of the Imam. So there are other conditions. But in general, what do we see that what qualifies a person as a man is what his knowledge of the Koran

00:53:26--> 00:53:28

and with regards to a child in particular,

00:53:30--> 00:53:49

can he lead older people in prayer, and especially what is mentioned over here is a lady lemmya. Tell him the one who has not yet reached the age of puberty. Now, there's considerable difference of opinion concerning this matter. But many of the scholars their opinion is that he can, as long as he knows more,

00:53:50--> 00:54:04

and he fulfills the conditions and obligations of the prayer meeting, he also knows about the prayer, the conditions of the prayer, not that there is a child who doesn't even understand, you know, the proper way of fahara.

00:54:05--> 00:54:48

And just because he knows more Quran is leading the people in prayer, if he breaks his will do during the prayer, then how is he leading the people in prayer? You understand? So as long as he has this sense, right, that he knows what is allowed inside out what is not allowed in so that he can fulfill the conditions of prayer, then he can lead the people in prayer. And the evidence for that is, first of all, this deli he knows more Quran than the rest of the people. He's the half. And the other people they don't know the Quran, and it's possible in many places. And secondly, there is another delete, which we learned in Sahih Bukhari, Hadith, Urban salema. He said that my father came

00:54:48--> 00:54:59

from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and said that he had heard the prophets of the Lamas LMC offers such and such prayer at such and such time and when the time for the prayer becomes fewer than one of you should pronounce the N

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

And let the one amongst you who knows Quran most, she should lead the prayer. We learned this by the third year right. But in

00:55:08--> 00:55:25

the Kitab of Mojave, Mojave mentions the entire version, Hardee's continues, that when this companion when he came to his people, they look for such a person, that who knows more Quran and found none who knew more Quran than myself,

00:55:26--> 00:55:54

because of the Quranic material, which I used to learn from the caravans meaning the travelers who would pass by this boy, and would have been salema, what would he do, he would go and learn from them, travelers who were coming from Medina from profitableness, and he would just go and learn Quran from them. So he knew most. So the people therefore made me there, mmm to lead the prayer. And at that time, I was a boy of six or seven years.

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

He was the age of six or seven.

00:55:59--> 00:56:08

And he said that I would be wearing a bowtie, a small square garment, which was very short for me so short that when he would go into such that

00:56:09--> 00:56:40

his back would be exposed in his private party when would be exposed because he was a child. Right? And so one day, a woman who was praying behind him, she got very upset. And she said, Why don't you cover the private part of this recital for us? I mean, he's our email. Come on, people do something. So then they got together, and they bought a piece of cloth and made a shirt for him a shirt for him and they gave it to him. He said, I had never been so happy with anything before, as I was with that shirt,

00:56:41--> 00:56:55

something that covered him properly. But anyway, we see that this happened in the lifetime of the profits of a lot of them. All right, and this hobby was only six or seven years old. But because he knew more Quran and the rest of the people, he was leading the people in prayer.

00:56:57--> 00:57:11

Of course. I mean, the basic thing is knowing the Quran, meaning the verses the memorization part. But if there's another person who has more understanding, and obviously, with knowledge and understanding their status will be higher.

00:57:12--> 00:57:56

You see the fact that the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he allowed that Abu Bakar should carry on the prayer. And he was going to follow him in Salah. What does that show that? It's okay, if it happens once in a while. But the regular appointed Imam should be who the one who knows more. But you know, one prayer a week to solo ads, you know, here and there, that is a different situation. So for example, in Ramadan, it happens at the regular amount, he leads the faulty leads that are away. But when it comes to pmla, then they lead the who falls. But young profiles were still memorizing, they let them have a chance because it's it's a part of training for them. It's an experience for them.

00:57:56--> 00:58:04

So they're not the regularly appointed Imam, but they're having a chance here and there just to get that practice and confidence in that training. Okay.

00:58:12--> 00:58:27

There is difference of opinion concerning this matter. Some squatters do allow it and others say that no, this is going to distract a person from the prayer because what is better in the prayer that you should be looking at the place of such. But if you're looking at the most half, and you're looking for the right page, and then obviously

00:58:29--> 00:58:46

you end up going to the next line and the third line and then you're looking above and below how can you follow the Imam over there? It's going to be challenging. So it's better that such reading is done. separately and insular focus should be on listening to the email.

00:58:47--> 00:58:55

know for sure, you know, I I myself, I tried it looking at the most health but I would be so scared that I I'm going ahead of the email.

00:58:57--> 00:59:10

Exactly. And then there is an issue that when you're going down into recording, decide where to put the cron, some people put it on the ground, some people put it under their arm or something to put on his altar disrespected. So it's better to focus on listening entirely at that time.

00:59:11--> 00:59:16

Train yourself to listen, right and develop focus when you're listening to the man.

00:59:17--> 00:59:27

When you're residing outside of the center, listening to someone recite the Quran, then obviously it's helpful. But in the prayer, it will definitely distract you from the prayer if you have a must have open in front of you.

00:59:28--> 00:59:41

But he's reciting. There is a reason over there for him to look at the most happy because if he doesn't look at the most of how will he recite, right? You don't need to look at the most half in order to listen to the email. You understand?

00:59:43--> 00:59:49

Exactly, exactly. But let's say there is a person who has been appointed to help the Imam

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

for correction purposes. You understand? Let's say there's only one half, only one half and he is going to be the email

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

And he needs help sometimes he's a human being somebody needs to keep a check, right? So for that purpose if that person has the most heart open in order to make sure that the man is reciting correctly, then there's a reason for him to do that. But for the rest of the people, there's no reason except personal you know benefit and remember that the objective of solar is something different. I mean, these days people even have it on their iPhone or iPad and if you're if you have it in your somebody messages you or something How can you focus in solar?

01:00:32--> 01:01:11

Had the sun Abraham, woodland Windsor, Colorado, Santa Ana, Maria and obey the law are nefarian aren't even euro moto polymer Kadima, mohajir una una de las butta mo their own bukoba and he said that when the mahadji rune alone, the first Mahajan when they came to Roswell, which is a McLaren a place Bill poohbear in New York over when they first arrived over there, covenant mock me Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before the Prophet sallallahu Sallam came to Medina khadiyah Solomon, who would be the Imam of the people, Salamone and who was Salim Mola, Avi who they for the freed slave of Abu hanifa What kind of

01:01:12--> 01:01:55

a thought and he was most knowledgeable of them when it comes to the Quran. So this is the reason why despite the fact that he was Moeller. He was a freed slave. He was the man had the Mohammed number Sharon had the scenario here, had the finisher but to call her destiny about a year and NSN an interview so the longer you sell him call is tomorrow up to you. He said, listen and obey what Mr. Miller have a Shi Yoon, even if you have a sheet is appointed over you, and not so who's the Biba. And even if that however she is head is like that of a reason. Still, if he is your leader, you have to follow him. Now this is with regards to which kind of leader the person in authority

01:01:55--> 01:01:59

meaning an amine. So for example, a general or for example, halifa.

01:02:00--> 01:02:32

And the prophets, Allah is an upset even if he's habashi, meaning from Russia. And in that society, people who were from Russia were looked down upon due to the difference of the skin color. And this was jelly. And we see that this kind of God exists today as well. So, just because someone's skin color is different, people are discriminated against, they're looked down upon. So, the prophets have allowed us and made it very clear, regardless of the skin color of the leader, if he is appointed as your leader, you have to follow Him,

01:02:33--> 01:03:00

you have to follow him. And even if physically, he is very unattractive, or you know not good to look at, still, if he is your leader, you have to follow him. If you have to follow him with regards to any command that he gives, then, of course, if such a person is appointed as the email, then again, you have to follow him. So what does it show that such a person can also be an email?

01:03:01--> 01:03:13

You understand? If he can be the halifa he can also be the man. So what do we learn from all of these ladies over here, that the Imam who can be the Imam,

01:03:14--> 01:03:25

what's the one thing that qualifies him knowledge of the Quran doesn't matter. His social status, his financial status, his

01:03:26--> 01:03:41

background, his ethnicity, it doesn't matter. Regardless of that, if he knows more Quran, he will be followed. And sometimes it happens that people think that if they have to follow an Imam who is from a different country,

01:03:43--> 01:03:49

right, Pakistan, EMA, or African EMA, or he's a convert, what does he know?

01:03:51--> 01:03:57

Right? People look down on others, just because they think that they're better than them.

01:03:58--> 01:04:12

It's unfair, and it's rude. It's very disrespectful. Also, I mean, the criteria that the prophet SAW a lot of them gave was knowledge of the Quran, not that we start asking people about their money and about their history and about where they're from,

01:04:13--> 01:04:19

respect the individual and respect him for the Quran that he knows not anything else.

01:04:20--> 01:04:33

The story have followed that how people objected that he doesn't have any money and he's not have you know, a great tribe, but still, he had what qualified him to be the leader of the people.

01:04:34--> 01:04:49

The leader comes from the people and the people are of different types, different backgrounds, different status, so anyone who has what will qualify him to be the leader and he will be taken as the leader. And if he can be taken as a leader, then he can also be taken as the Imam.

01:04:51--> 01:04:59

Yeah, some scholars said that a child cannot lead for Salah, but he will lead let's say Nepal, but what we see in this hadith is that

01:05:00--> 01:05:21

He was leading the people, in fact, Allah. So remember that if the child has the ability to fulfill all the conditions of the prayer, right, he understands the matters of bajada he understands the proper way of performing the Salah, then he can be made, if he knows more, even even if he has not reached the age of puberty.

01:05:22--> 01:05:25

So for example, there are children who are very mature,

01:05:26--> 01:05:38

right, they're very mature. And when they're, when they're leading the people, they're so focused, I mean, I'm sure you've seen videos of, you know, little child who's leading the people in prayer, and he's standing

01:05:39--> 01:05:52

so properly, like nobody else's, everybody is moving, either playing with their beard or adjusting their clothes or something, and the child is just focused in the prayer. So he is more deserving of leading people in prayer.

01:05:53--> 01:06:05

If your child knows how to pray, and he's also learned some Quran, the best thing is that in the house, have them lead the prayer because they will be able to focus more in prayer. And they will also make sure that they pray.

01:06:06--> 01:06:31

Very important over here that it's moral to listen and obey, regardless of where the leader is from. And even if you don't find him physically attractive still, you have to respect Him and OBEY Him. And there are many scholars about whom, you know, to set that physically there were, you know, it was almost difficult to look at them in the eye.

01:06:32--> 01:06:34

But still, they were great scholars of Hades.

01:06:36--> 01:06:38

They were great scholars of ideas because of their knowledge.

01:06:39--> 01:06:52

Right? So a person must be appreciated for the ability that he has. Right? We got lost in the physical pain in the glamour, basically,

01:06:53--> 01:06:54

it's the ability it's the Quran.

01:06:56--> 01:07:06

It also shows us that if we have to relieve the people in anything, address them or anything, our focus should mostly be on what conveying the message properly. Right? But our focus becomes what am I gonna wear?

01:07:08--> 01:07:23

Imagine a slave or a person who's an illegitimate child, but still, there's so much hope for them that it doesn't matter what your background is. Look ahead, look what you can do. You can also have this opportunity. If you learn the Quran.

01:07:24--> 01:07:30

For anything, it should be the ability that they have, not their physical appearance or their background.

01:07:31--> 01:07:37

So Chronicle alone would be Hyundai La Ilaha. Illa, anta this stuff will go on to be like I said, I'm really caught up with the label.
