Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

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

Kareem

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

Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim what are the strategies? So the way assumedly md workflow Dr. Millis any of Gokhale have been answered nerima

00:00:19--> 00:00:31

I gave you some homework. I told you to memorize something. What was that? And I uh, or and it had this right. So who has memorized and I

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

You didn't know you had to.

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

So how about we memorize the eye now?

00:00:52--> 00:01:10

Okay. So open up so the earlier one and number 31 you have the most half here. Okay, so nobody can say I can't do it right now. I am number 31 is going to read it out loud. Who's going to read it out loud? Yes or

00:01:13--> 00:01:23

no la have your own baby como la la la Koo back home. Whoa la Who?

00:01:26--> 00:01:53

say oh Mohammed. If you people love Allah then follow me so Allah who love you and forgive you your sins and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Now have you read yourself it three or four times and focus on every word. One of the best ways of memorizing is also that you write it okay? first read the Arabic know the meaning and also write it okay.

00:01:55--> 00:02:02

Okay, so inshallah you can perfect your memorization at home and for Monday, can you have it ready? Okay, inshallah,

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

I will be learnership languages for level,

00:02:07--> 00:02:52

precept number 30 performance of any deed that is not in conformity with the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is not acceptable to Allah. What did I just say? Can somebody mentioned again, rephrase it? What did I just say? Quickly settled in class, okay, and focus. What we're studying right now is the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and today inshallah, we're going to learn about the respect of the Hadees, the respect of the Hadees that the Hadith has to be respected. And part of respecting the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is that when it is being mentioned, then we should not raise our voices meaning we should listen silently. The Quran

00:02:52--> 00:03:34

does not deserve that respect from us. Yes. Likewise, the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is also such that we should not raise our voices when it has been mentioned. So far this has been narrative than we should be completely focused on it. Okay. So, performance of any deed that is not in conformity with the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam is not acceptable to Allah, meaning if a person performs an action, and it is not in the way, in the manner that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did it, then such a deed is not going to be acceptable, no matter how hard a person has tried, no matter how much effort he has put into it, no matter how well intentioned he

00:03:34--> 00:04:23

was, no, regardless of the good intention, regardless of the great effort. If a deed is not according to the way of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, then it will be rejected. It is a useless action, it's a worthless deed. This is how important the sinner is. If a person does not know what the Sunnah is, then can he follow? No. So the first step is that we come to know of what the prophet sallallahu Sallam did what he said, so that we can perform our actions accordingly. Because if we don't do that, then all our efforts could be useless. And I shall be a lot more unhealthy pilot on a sort of like a sort of low early he was selama man ash data feed emelina Heather mellissa Minh, who,

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

for who are done with de la,

00:04:27--> 00:04:55

whatever, Carly, do you know what that means? motherfuckin la What does that mean? That it is agreed upon me in this Hadith, it is agreed that this is definitely authentic. And it's agreed upon by who by the two great scholars, great collectors of Hadith Who are they Buhari and Muslim. So when I heard this after that, it says motif upon earlier then it means this is mentioned in Buhari and this hadith is also mentioned in Sahih. Muslim

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

Orisha widower and how narrated that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

said, Whoever has performed a deed which is not in the religion, from its inception, it is rejected. Meaning if a person performs a deed, and it's not from the religion, it's not part of the religion, meaning it's not something the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did, then such a deed is worthless. If you think about it as human beings, all the time, people are inventing things, right? Coming up with the latest technology that is way of doing something or the other. Right? When it comes to worldly matters, inventions, this is something very good creativity, it's something that's very good. Why? Because it makes us more productive, you know, it fulfills our needs. Think about it, if people did

00:05:40--> 00:06:25

not use technology, if they did not invent the washing machines, or dishwashers or in a different machinery, then different equipment than how much could we do really, life will be still very difficult for us. Correct. So inventing things in worldly matters, this is a need. Okay? But you only need to invent new things when it is not there. Correct? When what you have currently needs to be improved, isn't it? So, for example, you have a phone and that phone, people have found some problems with it. Some glitches with it. So what happens every now and then they come up with a new software. Right? And then eventually, what happens? They need new hardware as well, because the

00:06:25--> 00:07:10

previous hardware cannot support the newer software. Right? So that's why you have to keep upgrading. Why? Because nothing of this dunya is complete, nothing of it is perfect. But when it comes to the deen, is it complete and perfect? Yes, it is. So does it need to be revised? Does it need to be upgraded? No. Do you have to invent things in the deen? Not at all because Allah subhanaw taala said that aleo merkmale to lacantina como at Monterey Aleikum, near Mati, I have completed your religion for you perfected my favor upon you. So the religion is complete, it is perfect, there's no need to come up with new things in between. So, this is why if a person invents something

00:07:10--> 00:07:54

in the religion, then that is not acceptable, because that would be doing something which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did not do. Therefore, such a deed such an effort would be useless precept number 31, the result of not following the Quran and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is going astray. This is how important to some nice as long as a person holds on to it, he's rightly guided. If a person leaves it, he will go astray. And it'd be Moosa robiola who aren't who aren't in a BSL Allahu alayhi wa sallam are in the method only one method Mr. Bertoni Allahu be committed Elijah Lin at a coma Who?

00:08:24--> 00:08:35

are they ever Massara below our narrative that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, my example and the example of what I have been sent with is that of a man who came to his people,

00:08:36--> 00:09:21

a man who came to this people, and he said, Oh my people, I have seen the enemy's army with my own eyes, and I am an open Warner. So protect yourselves, save yourselves. Then a group of his people obeyed him and fled at night, proceeding stealthily until they were safe. So a group of the people, they listen to his advice, and the precaution they left at night, in order to be safe from the enemy's attack, while another group of them disbelieved him and stayed at their places until the morning they said, No, we're not going to believe you, we're gonna stay here. And when the army came upon them and killed and ruined them completely, then the army came and finished them ruin them

00:09:21--> 00:09:59

completely. So this is the example of that person who obeys me and follows what I have brought, and the example of the one who disobeys me and this believes the truth that I have brought. So those who believe in the Prophet sallallahu sallam, their example is like that of those people who listen to the warning that was given to them. And they protect themselves they take the steps that are necessary for their protection. And the example of those people who don't believe in the profits or losses and don't follow these instructions, is like the example of those people who do not pay attention to the Warner

00:10:00--> 00:10:41

And as a result, they suffer at the end. So, this is how important this is it saves us from destruction, it saves us from loss. And just a small example. When it comes to performing the will do, then we know that the where the profits or losses was that even if he used very little water, he performed with a thoroughly meaning not even a small part of the body he would leave dry, meaning if the arm was to be washed, he would wash it 30 the foot has to be washed he would wash it thoroughly. And once the companions they were in a rush, so they didn't wash their feet properly they left the heels dry they just wipe their hands over and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Whalen aka women

00:10:41--> 00:10:51

enough Waylon aka women enough meaning wore to the heels from the fire, meaning the heels which have been left dry, they will be punished in the fire.

00:10:52--> 00:11:33

Now imagine if a person does not follow the similar in performing the will do then he is exposing himself to the punishment of Allah. Even though apparently he is doing something righteous performing will do. But if he does not do it properly, then he is punishable in the hereafter to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it saves us It protects us from misguidance in this world, and from punishment in the hereafter.

00:11:34--> 00:12:20

Abu huraira with our new narrative that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I am leaving behind two things amongst you. If you act upon them, you will never go astray after the book of Allah and my son. These two if you hold on to them, you will never go astray if you stick to them. precept number 32 disobedience of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam amounts to disobedience to Allah. Were obeying Him is like obeying Allah disobeying him is like disobeying Allah. This is how important his instructions were. And I'll be right up. It'll be a long one who I used to be a sort of love when he was settling upon men authority. Authority. Woman Dr. Sweeney

And whoever obeys the person of authority has obeyed me, and whoever disobeys the person of authority has disappeared me. precept number 33 disobedience of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will result in damnation and destruction meaning in punishment in loss in misguidance, some era of necessity, a tsunami of the Aloha anhu yaku wherever now Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:13:05--> 00:13:20

sallam, or con la Tierra del Valle de de les Lu her kana hairy her lazyload and her birdie elar helicon highlight this word, Likoni. Hello Paul, I need

00:13:21--> 00:14:09

to set the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam delivered a sermon to us in which he stated that I am leaving you all such a clear religion, that the night of which is as clear as its day. Meaning just as the Hillel is clear, the harem is also clear. It's night is like its day mean just as the day is very clear, the night is also very clear, that says Haram is clear. halaal is also very clear. No one but the person who wants to destroy himself will deviate from it after me. Anyone who deviates from this religion, then what is he halycon meaning one to destroy himself meaning one who is going to perish is going to be ruined. So anyone who deviates from the Sunnah of

00:14:09--> 00:14:17

the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam, then what is this end result? What is this end result halakha destruction loss

00:14:19--> 00:15:00

precept number 34, when compared to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the very idea of following any other Prophet, Saint, jurisprudence, religious leader or scholar is nothing but going astray. Meaning when there is the command of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, his instruction his way, then no other human beings command instruction way hold any importance. No one's saying is going to take precedence. No one's command is going to take precedence. No. When the instruction of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam is there, then that is the final statement then that has to be taken?

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

As it is, even another prophet of Allah, even another prophet of Allah, his statement, his command will not be followed. Only use command will be followed now, of Muhammad Sallallahu.

00:15:16--> 00:15:42

Likewise, any saint, any righteous person, any jurisprudence who has jurisprudence meaning a fapy okay for the a great scholar of fic It is his opinion no but if the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says something different than the opinion of the scholar does not matter, religious leader, if the saying of the Prophet some of them say something different, then the opinion of the religious leader does not matter.

00:15:43--> 00:16:33

And if a person holds on to the sayings, the statements of others, then he is going astray, he is making a big mistake, a great error. And Jabba dibny Abdullah Roby Allahu anhu and in the BSL, Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and probably a lot more I know Uttar who for call international Hadith Amina Leah hood, Giorgio buena, etc. And next to baba baba for call a moto wicona antem d'amato Waka tilia hoodoo win the photo locker that can be available on occasion, while ocana moose Haiyan man was Yahoo Illa de Berry, Jabir ibn Abdullah narrative that are notably lower on who visited the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said that we hear some matters from the Jews,

00:16:33--> 00:17:08

which we like, meaning some things we hear from them. And they're very nice. We like those statements, we like those concepts. Can we write down those matters which we consider good. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Are you in doubt about your religion? Are you in doubt about your religion, meaning he got upset. He said, why would you want to take from them? Why would you want to see? Why would you want to give importance to what they're telling you? Are you in doubt about your religion? Do you think that your religion is insufficient, that it is incomplete, that you have to look at other sources, in the same manner in which the Jews and the Christians were doubtful? They

00:17:08--> 00:17:46

were doubtful about their religion. This is why they looked at what others were doing. And so if others were worshipping idols, they wanted to do the same. This is why the youth what happened to them when we saw Islam when they took the car for worship, because they saw the people of their own worshipping idols. At a certain point they even asked musala salon ager Atlanta Illa and Camilla home earlier, you make for us a gorgeous like these people have gods. Right? So the Jews and the Christians, they were not satisfied with their religion. They were very impressed with the practices with the ideologies of others, so they imitated them. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked for a

00:17:46--> 00:18:08

little bit over and who that are you in doubt about your religion, that you want to look at what they're doing. Although I have brought a clear and manifested era, if Musan Islam was alive today, he would have had no alternative but to follow me. If musasa was alive today even he was to follow the prophets of Allah.

00:18:09--> 00:18:51

Why? Because guidance now was sent through him. And if a person wants to remain guided, then he has to follow the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, this Hadees clearly shows that what the prophet sallallahu Sallam said, what he did what he advised what he instructed, is the final instruction for us, meaning that is what we have to look at, and that should be sufficient for us. And if the statement of any other individual regardless of their status contradicts what the prophet sallallahu Sallam said, then we're not going to accept that. This does not mean that we are disrespecting other individuals. Okay? No, it's quite possible that they did not know about what the

00:18:51--> 00:19:34

prophets of Allah said himself, right? Because no one knowledge is complete. Even the great scholars of the past, even they did not know about all of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So yes, it's possible that they said something, but it doesn't mean that they knew everything. We know for example, in Amma Shafi, he studied from various schools of thought initially, he went from one scholar to another and then he formulated his own opinions when his knowledge grew extensively. So we think that if we want to be rightly guided then we just have to hold on to one way we have to follow one scholar. One opinion, okay, one must have no. What do we learn in the Quran for in Amano

00:19:34--> 00:19:37

we miss Lima and Toby, for Cody.

00:19:38--> 00:19:52

Only if the people believe as you have believed then they are rightly guided. And if they don't believe the way you meaning the Sahaba have believed then their Eman is not acceptable then they're in shock. Right, they're a stray.

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

So right guidance is only in following who the Prophet sallallahu

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

and others

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

What they have said, Okay, well and good. But if it contradicts the statement of the preference of a lot of Southern, then we're not going to accept that. Some people they went to such an extreme in this matter that for example, someone once said that every Hadees that goes against the hadith of Abu hanifa must be considered either weak or aggregated by another Hadees.

00:20:24--> 00:20:35

Imagine, even such statements have been said by people that if there's a hadith that contradicts Abu hanifa, then we're not going to accept that Hadith we're gonna follow the statement of war.

00:20:36--> 00:21:23

But is this what we should do? No. Abu hanifa Rahim Allah was a great scholar, but it's not necessary that he knew everything. Right. So just because we were following a particular opinion previously, this is why we have to carry on in the same way No, once we learn about the truth and we are obligated to follow it, then we are accountable.

Anza be well okay and a hayan what other kind of wacky leftover irony

00:21:56--> 00:22:16

when reading the Arabic you should follow along, okay, look at the text jabil did our own who narrated that remarkable hotel blah, blah, blah and who visited the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam while holding a few writings from the Torah in his hand. And he said, O Messenger of Allah, this writing is from the Torah. The prophets of Allah said under silence. Why?

00:22:17--> 00:22:56

Because he was not too pleased. He was a little upset. And one of the lower on who he continued reading, he just looked up and he said, Oh, you know, this is writing on the Torah. And then he went back to reading it, and the face of the messenger of a muzzle loaders that have changed color due to anger, Abubakar or whatever, and who he was there to. And he noticed a situation and he said, Oh, Ma, me, you get lost, meaning May those who lose you lose you. Can you not see the face of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are one of the lower and he looked at the face of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam and he said I seek refuge in Allah from the Wrath of Allah, and

00:22:56--> 00:23:31

from the wrath of His Messenger. We are satisfied of Allah being our Lord Islam is our Deen and Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam as a messenger of Allah, meaning I have no shock. I have no doubt, my Eman is still there. Just because I'm reading the Torah does not mean I have lost faith in you. So he's reassuring, he's mentioning about his faith, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam then said, by the one in whose hand is the soul of Mohammed salatu salam, if musasa number to appear in front of you today, and you had followed him instead of me, you would have gone astray from the correct path.

00:23:32--> 00:23:46

If mazarin Islam were alive today, and had witnessed my Prophethood he would also have obeyed me, he would also have obeyed me. So what does it mean? That we have to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu.

00:23:48--> 00:24:30

Now from these are Hadees, it should not be misunderstood that we're not allowed to even look at the, you know, the books of other religions, especially of the People of the Book, know, remember that this instruction was given to the Muslims at the beginning meaning in the first few years, why? Because that was the time when the Quran was also being recorded. Okay, it was being recorded, and people were still learning about the religion, the religion was not fully revealed by them. And if people started looking at what the Jews and the Christians were doing, and if they start looking at their texts, then what would happen, confusion would spread amongst the people, correct? That, is

00:24:30--> 00:25:00

this the way we wash ourselves? Or is that the way we do will do Is this the way we pray? Or is that the way we pray? Is this what the prophet said? A lot of them said or is this what somebody else said? They would be confusion. So at the beginning, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he did not allow the Muslims to even listen to to even read the texts of the Jews. Okay, so my talk the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did not even allow the people to write his things. Why? Because he did not want that people would get killed.

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

fuse between Quran and other than

00:25:04--> 00:25:45

he did not want this confusion because religion had to be preserved correctly. But later on once the Quran was fully revealed, or and the, you know people knew about it the laws were very clear to people, then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that right my ahadith he said to some of the companions write them down, because nothing but truth comes from my mouth. Likewise, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also told the companions that had this one Bani Israel well I heard narrated from the Bani Israel and there's no halogen that there is no sin in that. Nothing wrong in that, go ahead. But do not affirm nor should you reject. Okay, do not affirm and don't even reject. So, these

00:25:45--> 00:26:24

are these should not be misunderstood. Okay, because a Muslim a believer is always interested in learning good things, okay and learning things of wisdom. Quite a lot. lb Allah himself says in the Quran that first louella decree in quantum lateral move as the people of reminder meaning people who have knowledge if you don't know about something, so believer should always be inquisitive, you should always be searching for an informative things for things that will enhance his knowledge enhances understanding, and even if it's non Muslim sources, still, it doesn't matter. But the condition is that it should not be confused with the Islamic texts and it should not be given

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

precedence over Quran and Sunnah.

00:26:28--> 00:27:11

Okay, it should not be given precedence over reliance on so what are the two conditions? Firstly, that they should not become confused, meaning they should not be mixed up with one another. Because remember the Jews, what did they do? They mixed up the truth with the falsehood. And they presented it as the book of Allah. Right. So this is the reason why some scholars have said that even when the Quran is translated, you don't call the translation, the Koran. It's only an understanding of the meaning of the Quran. It's not the actual Quran. And if it's translated, then the translation should be distinct from the actual text of the book of Allah. If the meaning of the Quran is being

00:27:11--> 00:27:26

explained, if it's being written, then the meaning should be distinct from the words of also that do not get mixed up. The first one was that you don't confuse them and secondly, that they should not be given precedence over the currency.

00:27:27--> 00:28:05

So for example, you learn about something in the Quran. Let's say some story about the Bani Israel that's mentioned in the Quran. Okay, but when you read in the Bible, it says something different than what should you do? Believe in what the Quran tells you, not what the other books say. Why? Because what the other book say could be untrue. Right? And definitely when it contradicts the Quran, then it's definitely untrue. Okay, reason number 35. It was a falling short of obedience to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that turned the victory of the Battle of word into a defeat. When the Muslims did not obey the Prophet sallallahu Sallam at the Battle of what it

00:28:05--> 00:28:14

is then that their victory turned into defeat. Why is this been mentioned over here? how important it is to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet

00:28:15--> 00:29:10

that if a person does not cling to his instructions, there's not follow him. Then he is prone to in suffering in this world even he is vulnerable he can get hurt in this dunya and also in the hereafter.

And he said, Do not leave your place. If you see us victorious over them and do not come to our aid. If you see them overcome us. Do not leave this position at all whether we

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

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

Leaving your spots and do not even come to help us. If you feel that we are being defeated in the battleground still do not even come to help us Don't leave your spot at all. When the confrontation with the polytheist started, the polytheists retreated so much so meaning they were defeated initially. And they began to retreat. So much so that I saw the women of the polytheists running up the hill lifting their garments, their dresses, above their ankles, by which the ornaments on their ankles were visible, meaning even their women were running away. And they were just trying to get away as quickly as possible from the battlefield that the Sahaba who's narrating he said that I saw

00:30:41--> 00:31:21

the anklets on the ankles of those women. You know, when I was reading this, I was like, what's the point of mentioning this? If you think about it, why do you think he would mention that they were running and they had lifted up their garments and I saw their anklets that how the women were trying to escape trying to run away from the battlefield and in that process, they didn't even look at what part of their body was being exposed. Yes, but the detail that their anklets were being seen. You know what? Men notice things that women don't honestly, men notice things that women don't interesting, especially the feet, the ankles. This is why they say the who designed the high heeled

00:31:21--> 00:32:02

shoes, the men but who gets the backings the women. Right. So really I was wondering that, why would he mentioned this detail? He could have just mentioned that their ankles were being shown. Half of their legs were exposed in their running away in their haste. But he mentioned the anklets I mean, yes we were all that jewelry. We were those ornaments and the clothes and everything but and we don't even notice like for example within sisters. No one is wearing fragrance perfume. She's wearing a plus, you know mascara, makeup, whatever. And for us it's normal. Right? But men notice details that women don't this is the reason why Allah has told us to cover ourselves. Not that we

00:32:02--> 00:32:42

don't wear any jewelry or makeup or anything no wear because this is a part of being a woman but cover that okay, because you don't want to put yourself in trouble and you don't want them to be in trouble either. Anyway, so their ankles were visible. The archers seeing this condition started saying booty booty. When the archers they saw that even the women were running away. Everybody's rushing in haste. They said booty booty meaning Come let's go collect the booty from the battlefield of the live in Japan who was appointed as their leader. He tried to make them understand that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam had warned them not to leave their position. He said that we

00:32:42--> 00:33:23

can't go the prophets have a lot of them told us to stay here. But the archers did not listen and left the place of their own accord, meaning without permission they left. Consequently, the Muslim suffered defeat and 70 companions were slain 70 companions were slain. Imagine. So we see that the only reason why at the Battle of or her victory turned into defeat was disobedience to the instruction of the prophets of Allah is Allah. And this was instruction regarding what battle. Now imagine if in the case of battle, when they disobey the prophets of Allah to them how much they suffered. In the case of Deen, in the case of Salah

00:33:24--> 00:33:40

in the matters of the afro, if we disregard his instructions, how destructive that could be for us how dangerous that could be for us. So when he has instructed us with something, then it's mandatory that we follow

00:33:41--> 00:34:10

the history of qualified shareholders Shaykh was talking about how one of the companions he was leading a battle afterwards. And they were losing and they were like trying to figure out what they did wrong. Like, they were like, maybe we're sinning or doing something. That's why we're not winning. And then they realize they had left this anonymous walk, then they all like gathered around, and then they started breaking the trees and cleaning the teeth. And then when the enemy saw them, they freaked out. They're like, Oh my god, they're gonna eat us alive. And because of that, they just surrendered. The enemy just surrendered. And they won because they, their intention was to

00:34:10--> 00:34:52

follow each and every son not not to send and let's see what we let go. And somehow, like maybe that's why we're all losing to like the muscles. We're not with love so many centers, not just the miswak. But now leaving the center, disobeying the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it is not a small thing. It is not a small thing as well. You know, we, we start from different different things in our lives. We are so busy, we have no time for for little things, sometimes even right. Somebody was mentioned to me that I'm so busy that if I can open up Hold on even once a day, I'm lucky. I'm so busy with my family with my work, whatever. I have no time at all. So the thing is that there are

00:34:52--> 00:34:55

some things that you have to make yourself do

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

and it is your right you know, you have some

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

rights towards yourself, rights obligations towards herself. It is the right of your body of your knifes of your soul or your ruler that you spend time in your body in following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu.

00:35:14--> 00:35:53

Bresson number 36 the companions of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam considered avoiding the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam as clearly going astray. They consider that if a person left sooner than he was going astray on earth and is debating it'll be Allahu anhu Allah Wilbur cleanup the Allahu anhu less to tell the country and cannot assume realize that a lot earlier selama yamalube illa permitted to be in need of OSHA interrupt to Shay and min Emily and zeal with the VA corner they are weapons of a narrative that Abubakar Alito earn who said that I cannot leave a thing, even one thing, which was acted upon by the Messenger of Allah

00:35:53--> 00:36:42

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but that I act upon it, because I fear that if I leave anything from the deeds or commands of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, I will be deviated, I will go astray. I am afraid that if I leave his way that I will go astray. So there is nothing that I know of, but that I do it. Every center that I know of I do it. I cannot leave even one sooner out even one sooner. Because I'm afraid that if I leave it, I'm gone. I'm done. Can any of us even claim this, that there's no sunlight except that I do it, I follow it, we should at least have the desire that we follow every one of the prophets of others or at least have that yearning that Allah give me

00:36:42--> 00:36:43

the ability to follow every sun,

00:36:44--> 00:36:57

00:36:59--> 00:37:39

that I don't know what all he asked for. But I want it. I don't know what he saw protection from, but I want protection from that too. So likewise, we may not know everything that the Prophet said about a certain date. But we must have that desire that Allah give me the ability to do that, to perform every good deed, every single preset number 37 the punishment for presenting any statement or deed as being a part of the Sunnah, which is not actually proven to be that of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam punishment for that is hell. Meaning if a person makes up something, invent something, and says this is the sooner the prophets of Allah said himself this, he did this. And the

00:37:39--> 00:37:51

punishment for this is hellfire. Why would a person do this, that he would invent something in the religion and call it the way of the Prophet? sort of odd, isn't it? Why would you do that? some personal benefit, okay?

00:37:52--> 00:38:33

To prove themselves, right. For some personal gain, right, whether it is through one's authority, show one's knowledge that Oh, look, I'm so knowledgeable and is making up everything, right? to influence people to impress them. There could be various reasons, but this is a very serious matter. very serious matter. avi Herrera Tara the Allahu anhu Pilar Carla Sula, he said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam a man Cannavaro Liam with Ahmed and Elliot about what McArdle MacArthur humanoid robot who Buhari Abu huraira below are a new narrative that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Whoever fabricates ally against me, which I have not said, will make his abode in hellfire. If

00:38:33--> 00:39:18

a person invents something in the religion and says that I have said it, I have done it, he ascribes it to the prophets of Allah Salah, then his abode is in hellfire. We have to be very, very careful whenever quoting any statement, that before we say the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, We are 100% sure about it. Before we say he did, it was his son. We have to be sure about it. Because his son is not something ordinary. It's not something small. It's very, very important. So if you present something as somebody that had better reason, because otherwise people would be going astray.

This her This is the most narrated Hadith meaning this is the only Hadith which has been narrated by the most number of companions. Other Hadith several companions have narrated them, but this Hadees has been narrated by many, many companions. And this shows that how clear it was to the companions that we cannot make up things in religion.

00:40:00--> 00:40:16

We cannot ascribe statements of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they were extremely careful in this regard. And selama harrowby Allahu anhu pata Samaritan, abyssal Allahu alayhi wa sallam he called me akula la Yama lm a call palliative mokara the human and nerve

towards the end of time, the Antichrist and the liars will bring forth to you my sadness, which you or your ancestors never heard before. Therefore be on guard against them for them may make you go astray or involve you in mischief. He said that towards the end of time, there will be the Jerry loon cut the boon. The Jalan many the jobs, cut debone many liars mean there'll be many people who will come up inventing things in the religion, ascribing things to me, whereas I never said that I never did that. They have no evidence to prove it. But they will present it as my way. So be careful. Don't let them put you into fitna Don't let them lead you astray.

00:41:46--> 00:42:24

So there will be a time when many things will become common, widespread, they will be considered as mainstream religion. But are they actually mainstream religion? Not at all. And if people are told that this is not actually from Islam, this is not actually the son of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they will be shocked that really? Does it happen to you? There are so many things so common amongst people. And if they're told no, no, this is not what the prophet sallallahu Sallam did. They're amazed. They're shocked. How could you say that? For example, when it comes to wiping the head, right? Some people they consider wiping of the neck is also part of will do, whereas there is not

00:42:24--> 00:42:44

the son of the prophet SAW the medicine. But amongst some people, it is so common. It is so common, that if they're told they're amazed, they're shocked. celebrating the birthday of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, right? There's so many things that are widespread. But these things were invented by others.

00:42:45--> 00:43:09

They were invented by others. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Be careful, be on your guard, don't let them lead you astray. Don't let them put you in fitna. Meaning don't follow them. Don't do what they're telling you to do. Because if you do that, then you will be astray. So when it comes to innovations in religion, never think that it's not a big deal.

00:43:10--> 00:43:27

It is a big deal. So for example, a person says, What's the big deal if you wipe your neck? What's the big deal? Is it a big deal? If you look at the action itself, okay, you're only wiping your neck. But it is a big deal in religion, it is a means of going astray.

00:43:28--> 00:43:46

Because bitter innovation it replaces the sooner it takes the place of the summer, eventually the signal goes away and whether it takes hold. And this is what we see that people do not give much importance to fasting on the day of alpha as much as they give importance to 12

00:43:48--> 00:44:32

Isn't it so? People don't know that performing a good deed in the first 10 days of the ledger is so good. As much as they know that two or three barrel of oil is a big day. Right? So the innovation, it takes the place of soda. This is why it's a big deal. person number 38. Any person who forgoes the sort of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam and searches for some new way is most hated by Allah. Any person who leaves the way of the prophets have a lot of fun, and searches for other ways, invents new things. Then such a person is most hated by Allah. I have Dr. Besson of the Allahu anhu and then abeles Allahu alayhi wa sallam a call a Babu nessa in Allahu salata, Malachi molay don't

00:44:32--> 00:44:59

feel harem. When mobitel infill Islam is Sunita janelia when lebu de memory in vileda happen, Lu Haruka dama raha Buhari, even a burst of the lower end who narrated that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said there are three types of people who are the most hated by Allah. First, one who defies the reverence of the karma, meaning the one who disrespects the sanctity of the home. Who does

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

Respect the sanctity of the halloumi who violate the sanctity of the huddle. What is the sanctity of the huddle? The Muslim have on the garba and the area around it. What's the sanctity of that?

00:45:12--> 00:46:07

No theft, no hunting, no cutting trees, no bloodshed, right. So such things should not be done at all. But if a person hunts animals over there, destroys the trees over there, the plants over there, right? The hurts other people over there fights with other people over there harms them commits theft, then such a person is most hated by a lot more most hated by Allah. Secondly, the one who in Islam for goals, the ways of Islam and searches for the ways of paganism, meaning he wants to re introduce the ways of paganism in Islam. He wants that an Islamic practices should be considered Islamic practices. And Islamic culture should become a part of Islamic culture, that Islam should

00:46:07--> 00:46:18

become so accommodating that an Islamic culture should become a part of it. That doesn't mean that if we belong to a particular culture, we can eat that food and we can wear those clothes.

00:46:19--> 00:46:41

Is this what it means? What this means is that Jamelia, especially before Islam, or what contradicts Islamic ways, they are reintroduced in Islam or they are presented as Islamic practice. So for example, the Christians they celebrate the birthday off, regardless and on to the Muslim said, Oh, we should also celebrate the birthday of our Prophet.

00:46:42--> 00:47:27

You understand? So this is like introducing Jamelia in Islam. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said we have two reads, right? Do reads we don't have a third ad. We only have to read in the year. So if a person says read, this is another eight. So this is what introducing jambalaya in Islam, bringing it back in Islam. Likewise, we see that jelenia is that a woman when she steps out, you know, she's displaying her adornment, her beauty, like she ducks up herself and she goes out in that manner. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran when asked about Regina the Babu del J Haley Yeti cooler, do not display yourselves, just as the people at the time of Jamelia used to display themselves. So if

00:47:27--> 00:48:10

people say that no, you know, we have made her job so difficult. We have made Islam so difficult for our women, let them go out, you know, hijab is in the heart and as long as a person is modest in the way they speak, and you know, they're righteous, they pray, that's all that matters. Then this is what introducing j Leah in Islam saying that her job is not a part of Islam at all. This is what introducing j Leah in Islam, this is most hated by Allah soprano Dada, Allah hits this and the person who does this. And thirdly, one who wrongly seeks for the blood of a Muslim just to kill him, meaning who accuses another of murder, so that capital punishment is inflicted upon him and that

00:48:10--> 00:48:49

innocent person is killed. to such a person is also mostly to Allah, this hadith. Why is this mentioned over here? Because of the second point that's mentioned here that one who in Islam for NGOs always have assignment searches for the ways of paganism, that if a person leaves the son of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam leaves what's mentioned in the Quran and looks for other ways that the prophets have a lot of them did not do, then this is something most hated to a loss. So we should all take refuge with ALLAH against this prison number 39. There is exemplary punishment in the world for the person who does not obey the commands of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:48:50--> 00:49:00

inshallah Mata even will occur and other who had death or who are nodular ekeler in the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ob Chemin de Fer Kala coulby emenike Kala

00:49:01--> 00:49:35

Kala les that Arthur meminger who Enlil kibou, polyphenol raha efe sama even acquire, narrated on the authority of his father that a person eight in the presence of Allah's Messenger sallallahu Sallam with his left hand. whereupon he said, a lot of them said to him, eat with your right hand. And he said, I cannot do that. Whereupon the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, may You not be able to do that, may you never be able to eat with your right hand. The person had said it in bright, meaning he had said this and pray that, oh, I can eat with my right and I can only eat with my left. This wasn't an excuse.

00:49:36--> 00:49:43

Okay, it was not a genuine excuse. It was just out of pride, that I can't change myself. I can't change my habit.

00:49:44--> 00:49:59

If the prophets of Allah Islam is telling somebody to do something or not do something they should take that seriously. And if they don't take that seriously, it's a big deal. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to me, You never be able to eat with your right hand. The narrator said that person could not lift his right hand.

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

After his mouth for the rest of his life, even if he tried, he could not eat with his right hand ever again. And this is mentioned in Sahih Muslim. So if a person disregards the command of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam does not follow Islam, then this is a cause of destruction, loss, punishment, humiliation, even in even in dystonia. If a person is left handed, meaning that they're used to doing things from their left hand the right with their left hand, they do whatever they have to do with their left hand are they allowed to eat with their left hand as well? No. Remember that as a Muslim your entire body is in submission to a loss of

00:50:41--> 00:51:10

Okay, your entire body, from your brain to your eyes to your lips in your mouth, to your ears, to your hands, your entire body from head to toe, which means that you will listen to what is allowed for you to listen to you will say, what is allowed for you to speak, you will think what you are allowed to think if some thoughts are negative or wrong or incorrect, you will shun those thoughts you will fight against them you will say

00:51:11--> 00:51:55

you will use your eyes for what Allah wants you to use them. Likewise, when it comes to your hands, when it comes to your hands, your hands are also in submission to Allah, okay. So, your right hand has to be used for those things, which align His Messenger have told us and your left hand will be used for those things which align His Messenger have told us, we cannot interchange that. Now, there are some things about which we have been given clear instruction, eating has to be done with the right when we greet the person who do with the right hand. Right? But when it comes to, let's say, using the toilet, then that has to be with the left hand you clean yourself, you wipe yourself, you

00:51:55--> 00:52:43

wash yourself with the left hand blowing the nose, you do that with the left hand, not the right. Okay. So there's some things for the right, and some things for the left. The rest of the things, the rest of the actions, we have the choice, we have the choice to either do them with the right or do them with the left. Okay? But remember, if it's a good thing, like for example, writing, okay, then it should be done with the right hand. Okay? But if a person doesn't want the left hand, there's no harm. Remember, there's no harm. Okay? There's no sin in that. But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he liked to do everything beginning with the right side. And using his right hand

00:52:43--> 00:53:21

attainment, it's mentioned so he Buhari that how he used to like doing things with the right hand. In the Quran. Also, Allah says, Well, at the hotel will be a mechanic. You don't write with your right hand. Okay, so writing is to be done technically, with what, what the right hand, but if a person does not use to, they're not trained, they don't have that much strength, then if the writing with their left hand, it's not how long? Okay? It's not how long, but when it comes to eating still, what hands should you eat? With? What hand should you drink with? Right? When you're in the wash? Which hands should you use to clean yourself left? Not the right.

00:53:22--> 00:54:04

Okay. And there was a friend of mine, who could write equally well with both her hands, right and left. ambidextrous, right. She grew up writing with her left hand, she had more strength than that, and her parents they trained her was that no, you have to write with your right hand as well. If you can do it with your left, you can do it with your right. And, you know, she did the course with me. And many times it would happen that she's switching hands back and forth. You know, like we're writing sometimes your hand gets tired, especially when you're writing so fast. And so she would switch, you know, back and forth between her right hand and her left hand. Amazing. So, if there is

00:54:04--> 00:54:34

a child who has more strength in the left hand, then also train them to use their right hand. Okay, and it is possible to use both hands and never think that is because you were used to doing something with the left hand you can't do it with the right you can do we think that for example, if we're in the washroom I'm used to wiping myself with the right hand, no training yourself, make yourself use your left hand and you can do it. Likewise eating for yourself, make yourself eat with the right time and you can do it inshallah.

00:54:36--> 00:54:40

inshallah, we'll conclude over here so practical long will be handy Ganesha La ilaha illa Anta
