Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

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

How are y'all doing? wonderfully? I'd also like to get him and avert Pharaoh to be there him in the shade long overdue Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. Obviously Saudi were silly MD, Dr. De melissani of koko de probenecid nerima. It develops in chapter number four. And before we begin, I'd like to clarify the homework to all of you. Some of you were under the impression that you had to memorize all of the verses, right? If you thought that, and if you tried, I'm very happy with you. But no soul is burdened with more than what it can bear. Okay? So that's not what is expected of you that you memorize all of the Hadees and all of the verses No, inshallah, from every chapter one or two,

00:00:49 --> 00:01:31

the ones that you are told that you have to memorize those inshallah you have to memorize. So for the first lesson, I told you about a particular had these the chair to memorize, did you do that? I heard from the group and charges that some of you did, and some of you did not. So remember that after every subject is a test, okay? So study from now, so that your test becomes easy for you. So whatever homework I give you, make sure that you do it within time. Now, for chapter number three, which was as soon as you local Anderson and the light of the class, I would like you to memorize any one, whichever one that you want. It's okay. Okay, any one is whichever one that you want, but you

00:01:31 --> 00:01:46

have to memorize at least one, at least one. Preferably, I would like you to memorize the ayah, which is included earlier in Milan, number 31, precept number 11. But otherwise, if you want to memorize any more verses, that's up to you.

00:01:47 --> 00:01:51

Chapter number four for blue. So now the accidents of So now, what does the word fuddling mean?

00:01:52 --> 00:02:38

Basically, follow is the extra. So for instance, the father of the widow of people is the left over water, okay, the leftover water the extra, likewise fuddle. When it refers to the grace, the favor that is bestowed upon someone, then it is such a favor that the person doesn't necessarily deserve. But it's a special favor of Allah upon him that that person has been given that favors it's an extra favor, definitely, is to prefer one over the other. So fabulous, another fuddle of salami means the excellence of Cerner, the virtue of sonet, the great merit, the great rank, the great status of Cerner, what is the status of sadhana? How high is that status? How great is that status? We will

00:02:39 --> 00:03:28

learn about it. In this chapter, precept number 20. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam has given the glad tidings of Paradise to those who obey and follow his Sunnah. So what's the follow up? So know that those who follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sort of artists, Adam gave the good news of Jenna to them, the one who follows the sooner that will lead him to gender This is a great status of the son of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and Avi hurayrah Toby Allahu anhu and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a call could no Mati yet hallucinogen netta 11 other Korea rasulillah woman yet the polar men of our Annie, the halogen woman, aswani footpod Abba, Rahul Buhari, Abu

00:03:28 --> 00:04:12

hurayrah de la noir and who he narrated that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, All my followers will enter Paradise except he who denied the companions as a messenger of Allah, and who has denied he said, Whoever obeyed Me shall enter Paradise, and whoever disobeyed me has surely denied me. So what do we learn in this Hadees that obedience to the messenger leads one to gender, and disobedience to the messenger is as though a person has rejected the Prophet sallallahu Salah if a person does not obey Him, refuses to follow his orders, then it is as though he has disbelieved in him. He doesn't accept him as a messenger of Allah. Because we see that the great character of the

00:04:12 --> 00:04:48

Prophet sallallahu sallam, it was clear to those who believed in him and also those who did not believe in Him the machine they used to call him Sadiq. I mean, isn't it so they trusted him, they praised him, they knew that he was a very noble person. And even today, there are people who don't believe in the messenger, but yet, they acknowledge the fact that he was a very great human being. This is why they praise Him. This is why they consider him to be one of the most successful people. But what's the difference between a believer acknowledging the great status of the Prophet sort of artists alum and a disbeliever, acknowledging his great status, what's the difference? The

00:04:48 --> 00:05:00

difference is that the believer also obeys the messenger. The believer also follows the messenger. This is what distinguishes us from others. This is what distinguish

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

is a person who believes from those who don't believe in a messenger. Because when you believe when you accept, then definitely you will obey, correct. For example, if there's a doctor, you accept that he is a good doctor, then if he prescribes a particular medicine, then what will you do? He will take it. But if you say, No, I'm not gonna take it, then what does it mean? You don't trust that doctor? You're not convinced by him being a doctor like you don't trust him. Right? So if you trust someone, if you believe in someone, then you will follow them. And if you don't follow them, that means the problem is with the belief, of obedience of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu

00:05:41 --> 00:06:23

wasallam his obedience to Allah subhanaw taala if a person obeys the messenger, in fact, who is he obeying Allah? Why? Because Allah has commanded us to follow him. So many verses we learned earlier in which Allah gave a clear instruction that obey the messenger follow the messenger. So when a person will obey the messenger, in fact, who is he obeying Allah? And if a person disobeys the messenger, who is he disobeying Allah soprano. So this is the great status. This is the excellence of the Sunnah, that obedience to the messengers like obedience to Allah soprano Donna and Abby who ryotaro Viola horn who are going to be a sort of law who early he was selling a call man authority

00:06:23 --> 00:07:15

for call the author of Romania assini for coder us Allah will make a meal for our any woman Yes Will a mirror for other asani Muslim Abu Raider Allahu anhu narrated that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, whoever obeys me has surely obeyed Allah And whoever disobeys me has surely disobeyed Allah. obedience to the messenger is like obedience to Allah. disobedience to the messenger is like disobedience to Allah. And whoever obeys the person of authority has obeyed me. And whoever disobeys the person of authority has disobeyed me, what does it mean? That following the leader, following the leader, is also very important. Because many times we think that they're

00:07:15 --> 00:07:56

human beings. So what? God doesn't speak to them, they're not a prophet, no angel comes to them. Why should I listen to them? Why should I follow them? Well, the fact is that if someone has been given authority, then we as believers are to follow them, we are to obey those in authority. Because no one is placed in charge, no one is given authority, so that they are disregarded, so that they are disobeyed, if someone has been given a particular position it is so that they are going to be followed. Correct. And if they're not to be followed, then why were they given that position in the first place? Okay, so, but one thing we should remember, is that obedience to Allah and His

00:07:56 --> 00:08:38

messenger is unconditional. What does that mean? obedience to Allah and His messenger is unconditional meaning in every situation, regardless of you know, whether we understand or not, whether we want to or not, we still have to obey Allah and His messenger. But when it comes to obedience to the Amir, to the leader, then that is conditional. And what is that condition? that whatever they instruct has to be according to the Quran, Ensign. So if the leader tells the people to do something that contradicts the Quran and Sunnah, then are they supposed to follow the leader? No, not at all. Once there was a group of companions were sent by the prophet sallallahu Sallam in a

00:08:38 --> 00:09:17

certain expedition and the leader he got really upset with the rest of them because one was made in charge. So he got very upset with the rest of them and he said, he collect would light a fire jump into it, meaning kill yourself, but they didn't, obviously. So when they came back, Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that had you jumped in you would have gone to the fire, meaning the fire of * because you are only going to obey the leader when they tell you that which is right, preset number 22. Those who strictly follow the Quran and the Sunnah will be saved from going astray. Those who follow the Quran and Sunnah they will remain rightly guided. So if you want to remain on the

00:09:17 --> 00:09:59

straight path, what is necessary, follow the Quran and the Sunnah that is also essential. If a person goes away from the Quran and Sunnah, then he will go astray. Dr. Besson Radley Allahu anhu and that will soon Allah hisle Allahu alayhi wa sallam hapa Vanessa he had to deal with sorry for Carla. But yeah, it's a shame to be in Yoruba be away from what I can know who probably are in Utah female see with Alec mimma to help them in our medical final year au Hannah's and Neil got doc to vehicle man in here. It doesn't have to be Fallon Toby Lou Ebert

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

In keytab, Allah was Sunita, maybe God sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah will help him even our best lovely long one who narrated that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. while delivering the sermon, on his farewell Hajj said, Indeed shavon has despaired, he has given a poll of the fact that he will ever be worshipped again in your land, which land is this, the land of Arabia, that now Islam is established over here shavon has given up hope that ever again he will be worshipped here. However, he is content that he will be obeyed in what do you consider minor in your deeds, that shaylen is happy with the fact that the people here will still obey Him? They will still follow him.

00:10:46 --> 00:11:30

Yes, they will not worship him, but they will follow him in what you consider minor in your deeds. And this is exactly what happens. When do we follow Shere Khan and we think it's not a big deal. When do we do wrong when we think it's okay, when we belittle since then we do them. So be on guard and listen over people. Surely, I am leaving amongst you those things which if you hold on to them firmly, you will never go astray. Meaning then you will be safe from the attacks of Shetland. Then you will be safe from shavon misleading you misguiding you and what is that? The Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when a person follows the Quran, when a

00:11:30 --> 00:12:15

person recites the Quran, then what happens? She had one goes away, right? Because you first started with a ministry of biology, music production with a love from the Shabbat. But when a person follows the Sunnah, that is also a means of protecting yourself from shavon. Many times people are afraid, Jin Jin Jin, right, especially girls, everything is a gym. So what will remove that fear from your heart? When you recite the Quran, when you follow the Quran more and more, but not just the Quran, also the Sunnah that will give you strength that will give you courage that will give you confidence because you will have that confidence that what I'm doing is right, the person who follows us and of

00:12:15 --> 00:12:56

the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Allah help us with him Allah special Mercy is upon him. Remember we learned earlier that fact to be Rooney Your Habib como la, right. And so many times it's in the Quran that you follow the messenger, locomotor hormones at the mercy of Allah will be upon you. So following the messenger is not something small. It's a means of great benefit. It keeps the person on the straight path. It's a means of protection for a person as well. Like for example of the Sunnah is that when a person goes to sleep, he should have he should recite either kursi the Marawi that also sort of milk and sleep on the right side. These are all the sudden of going to bed. Now

00:12:56 --> 00:13:14

when you go to sleep in that manner. Believe me, you won't have that fear in your heart because you will be relaxed. I have said I feel cozy. I have protected myself. I am in the state of Budo. I am clean, and Chitwan cannot approach me and people who are clean shaven does not approach them. People who remain dirty, then chalon goes there.

00:13:15 --> 00:14:05

So following the sun as a means of keeping your faith firm is a means of staying guided, and it's a means of being protected from Shetland as well. On Abu Dhabi Allahu taala, on who Kala Kala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in new cartography come Shane landable Luba de Houma, Kitab Allah He wants to Nettie roba will help him so he meaning this Hadees is graded. So here I will write a new narrative that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam stated, I am leaving behind two things amongst you, if you act upon them, you will never go astray. These two are the book of Allah and my Sunnah Book of Allah and Meissen precept number 23. In times of discord holdfast, the Sunnah

00:14:05 --> 00:14:45

of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be saved from going astray. At which times the times are discord, meaning when there are so many differences, you don't know what to do. Everybody's calling to their own way. Everybody's claiming to be right, there's so many opinions out there, and you feel kind of lost. You feel that what you were doing previously was right, and now what you've learned is something different, right? So in these times in these situations, what should a person do refer to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu earlier, you refer to the sooner you'll be saved from going astray. Because when a person follows the sooner than he is always safe, then the chances

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

of doing something wrong are very, very low. Let me give you an example these days is the ledger, okay? And we know that in the ledger, the first 10 days, we're not to cut our nails or here if a person goes

00:15:00 --> 00:15:39

asking what is it? Why is it How long is it this isn't that then you know what, you'll waste a lot of time and you'll be confused. And you'll have that shock that doubt. Okay? You will find out that Oh, it's okay. It's not that big of a deal. You trim your nails but you still have that guilt in your heart. What's the safest thing to do? All of a sudden, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said very clearly, don't trim your hair and nails until after slaughtering the animal. So it's best to do that. Even if you find many opinions out there but still adhere to the Sunnah and that will keep you safe that will give you peace of mind. And even a bed with me Sadie yetta Carlos de la Vina

00:16:37 --> 00:17:20

that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam prayed with us. Once he prayed with the companions after the Salah, he turned towards us and delivered an impressive sermon, a very effective sermon, which made eyes weep and hearts tremble. A person said O Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, today you have delivered a sermon as if it was your last one, the way you have advised us, the way you have spoken to us is as though you are bidding us farewell, as though these are the final words that you are telling us. You don't like someone, if they tell you something with a lot of emphasis again and again repeatedly, or in a very effective way. Why would they do that? Because

00:17:20 --> 00:18:10

they feel that they won't have the chance to tell you again, they won't have the chance to say that again. So the harbor really felt that that it was as though it was your last sermon, what do you advise us? What do you advise us on messenger of Allah? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I advise you to fear Allah, and listen to your leader and obey Him. If you go to the Arabic muesli comm with a cola was summary, what are you should underline this and obey the leader even if it is an Abyssinian slave, meaning even if it is someone who is of a different color, even if someone who is lesser than you in status, a slave Still, if he is appointed your leader, in whatever position in

00:18:10 --> 00:18:52

whatever way, then you have to follow him. Why is it important to follow the leader? Because if we don't follow the leader, how can we follow the messenger? And if we don't follow the messenger? How can we follow unless upon authority, because the leader is right before you. And if you don't respect the authority of the leader, then you think we can respect the authority of the messenger? And if we don't respect the authority of the messenger, how can we respect the authority of Allah soprano third? So it's all related. It's all interlinked. And this is the reason why obedience to all those in authority is necessary, whether they are lesser than us in some other way. Meaning in

00:18:52 --> 00:19:36

social status, in wealth, in appearance, in whatever way in age, even sometimes it happens, people say, Oh, you know, she's a young girl, or he's a young boy, what does he know? They have no experience, right? So people belittle their leader, why, because of something or the other, that they find less in them. But the messengers are a lot of them said that even if it is an Abyssinian slave, still you must follow. You must obey and know that the people who will be alive after me will see a great deal of discord among my followers. And this is what happened after the Prophet sallallahu sallam. There was a lot of fitna a lot of if the laugh a lot of differences amongst

00:19:36 --> 00:19:59

people that has carried on till today. So what was the advice that he gave the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Follow my son. If you want to remain guided in that fitna, in that confusion, what should you do? Follow my son, and that of the rightly guided caliphs that have the rightly guided cooler for Abu Bakr Rama earthman. And then early, early Allahu Arnhem.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:44

You must then hold to it and stick fast to it, hold on to it, stick fast to it. Moreover, save yourselves from innovative matters because every new matter in religion is an innovation. And every innovation is going astray, meaning it's going to be a means of leading a person astray. So the instruction that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam gave was, that if you want to be upon the truth, if you want to remain guided, then you have to follow the way of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and the way of the companions, the way of the companions. If a person holds on to their ways, then he will remain guided. And if a person shuns their ways, abandons their ways, then he will be misguided,

00:20:44 --> 00:21:25

because then what is he following? He's following a new matter, something that has been innovated in their religion? Because if there is something that the messenger said a lot of them did not do, if there's something that the companions did not do that what does it mean it is something new, it is an innovation, and every innovation is what is the means of misguidance is going to lead a person astray. And if you look at the Hardys were outdo or they have been no agile, meaning hold on to it, cling to it, don't leave it at all. Because sometimes it happens that following the center becomes extremely difficult, extremely difficult, but still hold on to it. And that will be a means of

00:21:25 --> 00:21:33

success for you, when you think of them. So another has become very difficult to practice very difficult to follow. Perhaps in these days.

00:21:34 --> 00:22:10

There is no sun every Sunday is easy to follow these days, that for men, for example, it's very hard for them to grow a beard, right? It's very hard for them, they're traveling, they're going somewhere and people are staring at their beards, so they find it very difficult. I remember the sister once gave to me and she said that her brother has to travel a lot for work, and he's always going through airports. And since he has grown his beard, it's become even more difficult for him to go through immigration because he's questioned a lot. So he's wondering if he can shave it off. So the thing is that there are some things that you have to do right like the prophets are a lot of them said very

00:22:10 --> 00:22:55

clearly about the beard that grow the beard. So for the men, it's necessary, but doing it is sometimes extremely difficult. So, again, doing it is the means is the way to success. Following the Sunnah, even when it's very difficult to do it is the way to success. person number 24. One who revives a Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will receive multiple rewards. This is a great status of the Sunnah, that if a person revives the Sunnah forgotten sooner, then he will receive multiple reports on caffeine of New York delay of Nero motive neurofen Alamos and he had definitely a B, and D and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam upon men are here sooner

00:22:55 --> 00:23:42

than men so nutty. For Amina be Hannah's Canada who miss Lou edgy demon Urmila be her labor union Councilman Judy him she a woman a budtender arbiter item for omega be her Kenner la Oh Zelman Urmila be her lay in costume in ozeri min Urmila because she our hope new merger. The theater bin Abdullah ibn Ahmed Al Madani dinero inherited that my father narrated to me and my grandfather to my father, meaning I learned from my father and my father learned from his father that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever has revived a sunnah of mine, and people started acting upon it, then for him will be the reward of all those who act upon it without diminishing anything

00:23:42 --> 00:23:54

from their rewards, a person who revives sooner, then he will get the reward of what following this and himself, but also the reward of all those people who will follow that so not the prophets of Allah.

00:23:56 --> 00:24:37

For example, you're sitting at home, it's time for mobile Uppsala. And the usual habit of your siblings is that Margaret comes in everybody prays three Dakar and then nobody prays the sun. So what do you do? You stand up again, and you stand for those two records, you pray them, and then your brothers are sitting there, checking something on his phone, and he sees that you're praying, might as well I should also pray? So he also prays. So if somebody followed a Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, why? Because he learned it from you, or he was reminded of it through you, then you will get the answer for your deed and also their deed. Why do you think this is so rewarding?

00:24:38 --> 00:25:00

Because the thing is that when nobody's doing something, it's difficult to do it. Correct. When everybody's sitting, having fun talking in a relaxing on the sofa on the floor. And there you are, you stand up to pay your son. you're sacrificing, right? It is difficult for you because everybody's having

00:25:00 --> 00:25:40

Good time and you're not. So this is why your agenda will be greater in children. And whoever starts in innovation which is then acted upon, then upon Him will be the burdens of all those who acted upon it without diminishing anything from their burdens. So we're reviving the sun as a means of great reward. innovating something in religion making up something in religion, that is also something very serious meaning will bring sin upon a person, because a person will be sinful for practicing that innovation. And all those people who follow it because of him, who do it because of him, he will get their sin as well. preset number 25 supplication of the Messenger of Allah

00:25:40 --> 00:26:30

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the person who spreads his son, for who? For the person who spreads his son, and Abdul Malik near Abdullah have numerous udon. You had this one abbyy Allah Samaritan nebia sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a akun not that Allahumma and semir Amina Shea and for Bella Wu gamma semirara for Obama loving our min Sam here in Ottawa who did me they you? So here? I'm not I'm not even Abdullah even miss Ruth rodilla Warren who narrated from his father who said that I heard the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say, may Allah brighten the face of that person who has listened to a hadith from us, and then conveyed it exactly as he heard to others who the

00:26:30 --> 00:26:44

person who heard it had his and he conveyed it exactly as he heard it. He conveyed it exactly. He didn't just keep that knowledge to himself, he passed it on as well.

00:26:45 --> 00:27:31

So what's the draw for him? Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, may Allah brighten that person's face. For many times, the person who receives it retains it better than the one who heard it. Many times it happens that the recipient, the one who has received some information, he understands he remembers better than those who informed him about it. Those who told him about it. Like for example, I'm telling you this Heidi's over here, it's possible that when I go home, I start preparing for the next lesson and I forgetting this. It's not that fresh in my mind, but you remember it, it affected you, you remember it? And you go and tell your brother and your sister and

00:27:31 --> 00:28:18

your mother and your father, and you put it on Facebook, okay? You pass it on. So it happens many times, right? That you are passing a message you are passing a piece of information to someone and you forget about it, or you don't remember it as well, but others remember it more. So those who remember and pass on the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam special Doral for them. And what's that special door that made their face be brightened by last pantherella. Next chapter, chapter number five, media to signal the importance of signal. isn't that important? Yes. How important is very okay. In what way? Is it important? What comes to your mind? Following the signals like

00:28:18 --> 00:28:33

following a loss of data? How well is it important? It's the completion of the faith meaning without this another religion would be incomplete. If you don't look at the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the way he explained the way he practiced, then you can't have a full understanding of the religion. That's the explanation of

00:28:34 --> 00:29:20

your deen would be deficient, it would be incomplete if you don't look at the center of the Prophet sativida center. So, the center has a lot of importance. And when something is important, that means it must be done right. So when the center is important, that means it has to be followed. Prison number 26 considering the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as insufficient, and exceeding it, in order to get more reward is something that is most displeasing to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam it is a means of angering him it's a means of earning his anger. What is what is that a person considers this not to be insufficient, in complete any exceeds

00:29:20 --> 00:29:59

the way of the prophets of the Lord as I'm striving to gain more reward. This is not something good. This actually brings upon a person the anger of Prophet sallallahu Sallam meaning the Messenger of Allah said a lot of them will be angry with this person. We think that if a person is very religious, then he follows the Koran. He follows the Sunnah and in fact he does even more than that. Know, the Sunnah is so important that you have to follow it exactly as it is. You should not reduce it and you can not at all. Go beyond it. You have to follow it exactly as it is. You can't go to extremes of network.

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

agents or exceeding the bounce preset number 27. Only that deed is worthy of reward which is according to the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam meaning if a person does not follow the Sunnah, then his action will not bring him reward. For example, in the Quran, Allah tells us to pray at the masala. Right establish the prayer. Now, if a person does not follow the Sunnah when it comes to praying Salah, then will this Allah be of any value. If a person says, Let us tell us to pray. So here I am sitting here and I'm just going to lift up my hands and I'm going to pray. Or I don't even have to lift my hands. I'm sitting in the subway, and I'm just going to pray in my

00:30:41 --> 00:31:24

heart. And that's sufficient because Allah told us to pray and I'm praying, is that prayer acceptable? Is that prayer considered Salah? will it bring the person reward? No, which prayer will bring a person reward? that prayer which is performed according to this and not the profits of that at fudge? A person performs Voodoo, he faces the Qibla and he performs a celeb following in a particular method in a particular way as a prophet sallallahu Sallam did, it's only that deed is acceptable only that deed will bring reward. And if a person invents his own ways, that entire effort is useless. What's the evidence of this? And NSF numeric in rob the Allahu anhu yaku Jessa

miss a feminine Rolly burn su Neti fillet salmon knee or wahoo body and as urban medical the lower narrative, three companions of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam visited the house of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, to the game to the wives of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they inquired about the worship of the prophet SAW that how does he perform worship? How often does he fast? How does he fast? How often does he pray? How much does he pray? When does he pray? They inquired about his worship habits. When they were informed about it. They considered the worship of the prophet SAW a lot of them as insufficient for them and converse amongst themselves.

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

They said, Where are we from the Prophet as his past and future sins have been forgiven, therefore, we should worship more than him. They thought that what the prophet sallallahu Sallam did was not that much. It was just ordinary that he also sleeps at night. He doesn't pray all night long. He only prays for a portion of the night, just some of the night. He doesn't fast every single day. But he only fast Mondays and Thursdays in the three wide days. That's it. So they thought that what he did was less. And the reason that they came up with was this after all his past and future sins are forgiven, so he doesn't need to do much. We our sins are not forgiven. So we need to do more. So

00:33:45 --> 00:34:32

they consider the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to be insufficient. And so one of them he said, I shall forever pray the whole night and will not sleep. I will pray all night long. I will pull an all nighter. And I will press on. Another one said I shall always fast and not discontinue fasting. I'm never going to discontinue fasting. I'm always going to fast every single day. The other meaning the third one he said I shall keep myself away from women and will never marry. Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam came to them and said, Are you the same people who said such and such? Beware, by Allah. Indeed, I am more submissive to Allah and more fearful of him than

00:34:32 --> 00:34:59

any of you. I have more taqwa. I have more harsher of Allah soprano. But I fast and I also break it. I stay awake in the night, and I also sleep and I have married women as well. So remember, whoever turns away from my son has no connection with me. These people who try to exceed the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu sallam, the prophets that a lot of them became angry with

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

He wasn't happy at all. So we see that the Sunnah, in itself is complete, and in itself is important, and we have to follow it as it is. Because the way of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is the most natural way, the most balanced way, the most practical way, the most realistic way. And if a person does less, or does more than what is he going to end up doing, he's going to end up harming himself. If he does less, that he says, I'm not going to pray the way the prophets of Allah said, and then he's presenting himself with the punishment of Allah basically. And if he does more than eventually time will come when he will snap. Right, he will not be able to remain like that he will

00:35:43 --> 00:35:51

not be able to continue. If a person says I'm going too fast every single day, eventually a day will come when he'll say, I want to go out for lunch with my friends.

00:35:53 --> 00:36:33

Eventually, a day will come when that person who said I'm never going to marry he will say I want to have a family to write it's very hard for myself to control myself. So it's not possible for a person to live a life of extremes of leaving this one of the profits of a lot of them the most balanced, the most moderate, the best way is the way of the prophets Allah, Allah. Allah says in the Quran, that all you have believed led to Kadima obey the law, he was really don't try to get ahead of aligners messenger. If Allah has given you a command follow that. If the messenger sallallahu Sallam has given you instruction follow only that don't try to get ahead of him. If he did

00:36:33 --> 00:37:19

something, do only that don't try to get ahead of him. He was the one who was most knowledgeable and he was the one who was most obedient as well. He is called the art of Allah, the servant of Allah, what does that mean that he was the best servant? he worshipped align the best way. This is why a lot of us to follow him. So we have to realize that the sooner is the best way. And we have to give the sooner it's due importance that it is the best way. Only then can we follow it only then can we live by it. And it shattered the law her and her Khalid gala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam either Amala whom Amara hominin early Bhima UT Khun Carlo in Allah snake a Attica Rasulullah

What are Aloma Camilla Hey, Anna Rosa, who Buhari you already showed up on her narrative, that whenever the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam ordered his companions to do something, he would order them in only that matter which they could do meaning in the way that they could do, he would tell them to do what they could do, he would instruct them with an instruction that they could follow. He will tell them to do something which was within their capacity. Once the companion said, that indeed we are not like you or

00:38:04 --> 00:38:08

messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam for Allah has forgiven all your mistakes past and future.

00:38:10 --> 00:38:50

Therefore, let us do more. Whenever he heard such statements, he would become so angry, that his anger would be visible on his face, if ever such a statement was uttered before him, that oh, we need to do more than you because you are forgiven, the prophets are a lot of them will become angry, so much so that his anger will be visible on his face. And he said that definitely, I am most fearful amongst you and know the commands of Allah more than any of you. I have the most taqwa of Allah and I have the most knowledge as well, to the most knowledgeable was the messenger sallallahu sallam. And obviously, when a person has more knowledge than his armor is also greater. So his armor

00:38:50 --> 00:39:31

was greater and it was also the best. This is why it's necessary that we follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And if we try to go beyond it, if we try to exceed it, then we're going to overburden ourselves. You know, the Quran, Allah says the messenger sallallaahu center when he sent, he removed from the people, their chains and their fetters that were upon them, the difficulties that they had made for themselves in religion, the route and Asana, the difficulties that they had imposed on themselves in religion and that were imposed on them by Allah subhanaw taala as well. The messenger sallallahu Sallam came to remove those burdens. So likewise, the Sunnah

00:39:31 --> 00:39:59

of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it teaches us such ways that we are capable of doing we are able to perform it's not impossible to follow the Sunnah. Everyone can do it, or there are a shadow robiola on her son or an abuser Allahu alayhi wa sallam mushy and philosophy for the naza anhu Coleman fabella Daddy canabis Allahu alayhi wa sallam for whatever, for Hamidullah so much

All men to acquirement yet anessa hoon are in the shape of smart rule for law he in Nila are number one below he was a shed to whom the hatia

00:40:12 --> 00:40:50

are a shadow on her narrative that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did something and allowed the people to do it, but some people refrain from doing it. They said, No, no, we're not gonna do it. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam learned of that he delivered a sermon, and after having praised Allah, he said, What is wrong with such people who refrain from doing a thing that I do? By Allah, I know a lot better than that, and I am more afraid of him than them. So if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did something that is the best thing to do, so we have to follow it exactly as it is preset number 28. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam intended to punish the people who did

00:40:50 --> 00:41:38

not obey his commands, those who did not follow his orders, who tried to exceed his ways. The Prophet said a lot of them wanted to punish them. And be who right authority Allahu Allahu Allah. Now, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam argued with Holly Barlow for inaka to Aslan. kala, au cometh Li, ne abhi to youth or emoni Rob beware staining filament about an inventor who was Alavi him Yeoman. So my Yeoman Samarra will heal Allah for Carlota hora Lizzy to come. Carmona Kirito raha Buhari overridable our narrative, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbade and we saw what is unresolved with letters from Botswana, which is to connect to join together. So we

00:41:38 --> 00:41:52

thought is basically such fasting there is continuous, continuous fasting, which means there is no break at all. When we fast in the month of Ramadan, is there a break in the middle? Yes, from what time to what time, from left to

00:41:54 --> 00:42:20

right, so until then you can eat and drink but someone was lol is that a person continues to fast as soon as the time to break the fast comes in. A person makes the intention of the next fast so he does not eat anything does not drink anything. He continues the fast. So the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he forbade a whistle he did not allow the people to keep such fasts. But the people said to him, but you fast.

00:42:21 --> 00:43:03

But you do it if you do it, we want to do it you this was a special thing for the prophets of Allah, Allah. So when they saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam fasting, and we saw some of the people wanted to do it too. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Who amongst you is like me? Which one of you is like me? meaning no one was like the prophets of Allah is Allah. He definitely had more strength. If you look at his life, in every aspect of his life, he did more than what other people could do. For example, when it comes to the night prayer, it was mandatory on him the night prayer that the AMA Lane was something mandatory on him. Is it mandatory on us? No, we pray only in the month of

00:43:03 --> 00:43:43

Ramadan, right. And even then we feel like we've done so much. And we pray only a part of the night. And yet we feel we have done so much. The prophets of the Lord has said that it was his regular habit, every day, every night, because Allah subhanaw taala instructed him comi Lane comi Lane, road profits are bothersome, you have to stand in the night in prayer, right? Woman, a lady for the hedges big nasty letter, like an extra obligation for you only for you. It's an extra obligation. So no other human being could possibly do that every single night. You know, you think of gambling, you think of the 100 perhaps on the weekends, or perhaps on the night where the next day you can sleep

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

in at least a little bit. Right? Or when the night is longer, like for example in winter, and even then we get up 15 minutes before federal half an hour before Friday. Right? But the profits are a lot isn't a third of the night on average, he would stand in prayer.

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

And every day, this is a big deal. Every human being cannot do that. So he was different from the rest of the people. When he suffered from an illness like fever. His fever was more intense compared to the fever that average people have average people have they would suffer that kind of fever, they would die. But the profits or loss of them would not his fever was much more intense. Likewise, people, if they have one wife, they cannot please her. Right? They cannot keep her happy. It's difficult for them to keep their mother and their wife happy at the same time. But the prophet SAW a lot of them he didn't have one wife, he didn't have to I didn't have three he had many more than

00:44:41 --> 00:44:59

that. And all of them were happy with him. If a person has only one friend, or two friends or three family friends, it's difficult for them to keep all of them happy. But there's a habit every single one of them thought that he was the most important to the Prophet sallallahu that he was special. He was somehow special to the prophet SAW the light isn't so

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

He was definitely different from the rest of the people. It doesn't mean that he was not a human being No, he was a human being. He was a bishop. But Allah subhanaw taala had given him a special strength that others do not have. When the where he was brought to him, he would begin to sweat even in the most cold night. If you will be sitting on a camel, that camel would sit down, because of the way the pressure of that way, if the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had his knee on the knee of another companion, the companion would feel that his knee would break. And the way he came to the profit sort of artists, Adam regularly, yes, regularly. So his strength was definitely different compared

00:45:45 --> 00:46:27

to the rest of the people. So when the people wanted to fast, Alyssa, because the profits of a lot of them did. He said, Are you committed? Which one of you is like me? When I sleep at night, my lord makes me eat and drink. His sleep was even different. When I sleep at night, my lord makes me eat and drink, he gives me the nourishment that I need. But when the people refuse to give up alcohol, when they said no, we're still going too fast. While He fasted Elvis all along with them for two days for two consecutive days. Imagine for 48 hours, and then they saw the crescent, it must be a read. Whereupon the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, if the crescent had not appeared, I would have

00:46:27 --> 00:47:07

fasted for a longer period, as if he intended to punish them here with that, okay, you want to fast a resolve with me? Okay, come on, give it a try. So He fasted for two days continuously. And only because the moon was cited, this is why he had to break the fast. But he intended to continue fasting in order to punish the people that don't try to compete with me, don't try to get ahead of me. So this shows that following the sooner as it is, is necessary, we have to believe that the sooner is complete, it is the best, and it is sufficient, we don't need to go beyond that we don't need to exceed it. Now, just to clarify one thing, Before we continue, that, from this Hadith, we

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

see that there were certain actions that were only for who the prophets are.

00:47:14 --> 00:47:55

But we learned earlier that the sinner is categorized into three categories. That is Kalia, then fairly, and the query. And when it comes to some nefaria, we believe that every fair that the prophets have allowed us and we have to follow, but here we see that some things we don't have to follow. Remember that there were three kinds of actions that the prophets are performed, all of his actions can be divided into three different types. First, are those actions which were only for him, and it's not allowed for us to perform them to do them. Like, for example, for me was, likewise married more than four wives, okay, this was specifically for him. If a person says I want to marry

00:47:56 --> 00:48:37

five wives, Six Wives, I'm following the son. Can he do that? No, he can't do that. He can't do that. Why? Because that was only for the Prophet salallahu early, he was Allah. If a person says I'm gonna breathe out every single night, every single night, then he should not impose this difficulty on himself because he won't be able to in the Quran, Allah says that Allah knows that soon there will be among you, those who become sick and those who are traveling. So for various reasons, you won't be able to continue. So yes, you should have that habit of praying the night prayer every other day. But making it a must on oneself every single day, then this is something that a person is

00:48:37 --> 00:49:18

making hard upon himself. However, remember that if a person does pray in the night on a regular basis, whether it is a little or a lot, once he has that habit, then he must continue. Okay, then he must continue the case of the night prayer is slightly different. Okay. But when it comes to certain actions of the prophets of Allah said, and remember, they were only for him, and we're not allowed to follow him in those actions. The second kind of reaction that he performed were those which he did, because of his natural disposition, because of his preference, because of his likes or dislikes, or because of the culture that he was off. So for example, the kind of sandals that he

00:49:18 --> 00:49:59

wore the kind of clothes that he wore the kind of food that he ate. Why did he do that? Why? Because it was part of his culture, because he liked to wear particular kind of sandals or particular kind of clothes, you'd like to eat a certain type of food. Now, just because he wore certain sandals is necessary for us to wear those sandals as well. No, just because he wore certain clothes. Do we have to wear those clothes as well? No. But if a person wants to, then definitely he can. Okay. Like we see that even Omar Abdullah he wore the same kind of sandals that the prophet SAW the policy because when you love someone, then you follow them in every way then you don't care whether they're from

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


00:50:00 --> 00:50:44

Cultural, isn't it? So, the third kind of actions are those which he did out of the output meaning as an act of worship to a muscle, okay. So for example, the way he kept this fast the way he prayed the way he made out to Allah the way he you know it, okay, the way he entered into the masjid, the way he got onto an animal in order to write it, okay, the way he lived in his house, the way he interacted with his companions, the way he walked the way he spoke, okay, all of this is what out of the habit. So, in that definitely, we have to follow him. There are levels some sooner are more emphasized right and others are less, but still there are some. So we definitely have to follow the

00:50:44 --> 00:51:28

Prophet sallallahu Sallam in those actions. preset number 29. After receiving knowledge of the sinner, those who do not act upon it are referred to as disobedient by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on Jabba dibner Abdullah head of the Allahu anhu another Sunni Allah is Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Harada Iman Fatih ilma Qatar few Ramadan for sama, Bella coola al amin, for sama Nestle some other our other human men in follow Farah who had never on NASA he So Michelle Eva for Kayla houbara delic in Nevada NASA for the former for color, Ola eco resort, who their eco resort for wahoo Muslim jabil bin Abdullah narrated that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu

00:51:28 --> 00:52:09

Sallam went out to Makkah in Ramadan in the year of victory, meaning for America in that same year, the prophets have a lot of sudden went in Ramadan, and He fasted till he came to Quran alone in a particular location. He was fasting and he kept his fast until he got to that point. And the people also fasted. He then called for a cup of water, which he raised until the people saw it. And then he drank. And when he did that, it meant that he had broken his fast. And when he lifted up his cups that everybody could see it, it was so that people would know that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had discontinued his fast he had broken his fast, and he wanted the rest of the people should do the

00:52:09 --> 00:52:49

same because it was getting difficult for them to keep that fast in that journey. And even though it was a month of Ramadan, remember that if a person is traveling, he is allowed to not fast. He was told afterwards that some people have continued too fast. Some people did not break their fast rather they continue to fast. And he said these people are the disobedient ones. These are the disobedient ones. This is something serious. He said these people are disobedient, when you know that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam broke his fast and you should also do that. So likewise, when we know that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did something or he forbade from something, then we should

00:52:49 --> 00:53:31

follow his orders when he said do not trim your hair or nails in the days of the ledger the first 10 days, then we are not going to and if we still saying that, oh, it's our harm, then what are we doing? We are still disobeying the messenger sallallahu wasallam we're still disobeying him. So it does not befit a believer that he should disobey the messenger sallallahu Sallam because disobedience of the messenger is like disobedience to Allah. And it's a means of going astray gela will conclude over here so your homework is one is the idea that you have to memorize. And from this chapter, or rather from the previous chapter, follow sooner. I would like you to memorize the last
