chapter number 11. As similar to well ima to the center, and the Imams. Ima is a plural of a man who is an Imam,
a leader, someone who leads others. For example, in the Salah, the Imam is the one who leads others in the prayer. And Imam is basically someone who has to be followed. We learned that in the majority of the time maybe that the Imam is appointed, so that he is followed. And if any man has not followed and Is he an email? No, then why would you have him right? The purpose of having an Imam is so that you can follow him so that the Imam unites the people because people could be praying on their own, but one person is doing pm at one time and others doing ruku and others doing sudduth at the same time. But when all the people follow the email, then what happens? They become united. So
this is who an Imam is over here in my refers to which email it refers to the scholars, the Muslim scholars of the past. And in particular, those scholars who were followed by others who are followed by others, those Imam who you can say had a must have must have is a particular way of understanding their religion. So they had their method and the people they follow them. Now tell me is it necessary to follow the email? We just learned that email you follow why so that you know when you pray together You are all united. So there are benefits in following an email. There are other benefits as well. Such as the Imam like the leader, he clarifies the matters for you. So you
understand them easily some complicated issues, everyone cannot become a scholar, but the Imam he clarifies the matters, but we need to know that when it comes to the sooner then who will be given preference will the Imam be given preference or will the sooner be given preference, the sooner will be given preference. When you have the opinion of a scholar, the understanding of a scholar and at the same time you also learn about the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam then who are we to follow the Sunnah. Why? Because the IMA as well who did they follow? The Prophet sallallahu wasallam right. So their email, the email of all of the scholars, all of the companions was who the Prophet
sallallahu sallam. So this is the reason why we also should consider who to be our Imam Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, which means that we will understand their religion the way he explained it, we will follow the religion the way he taught. Other scholars Yes, we respect them. We do study them we do study their opinions we do study what they taught, but will they be given final authority in the matters of religion? No, the final authority the final say is with who Allah and His messenger. So in this chapter, we will learn about the status of the Imams compared to the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam precept number 61. All the Imams have declared that their sayings and
opinions should be abandoned. And the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam should be followed, meaning should be given preference. So all of the scholars What did they say? That their sayings and their opinions should not be given importance when the Sunnah of the messenger salatu salam says something different. So if they said it, then should we say the same thing? Yes. If they believe that the Sunnah should be given preference over them. Should we believe in the same thing? Yes. Because if we don't believe in that, then we're not really following them. People say that they're following the Imams, but then they're not actually following them. Why?
Because all of the Imam said that you have to follow the Sunnah. First, the Sunnah will be given importance first, why is it that they said this? Because the more knowledge a person has, the more love a person develops for a line is messenger for the dean for the religion of Islam, and the more respect he has. So with more love with more respect with more knowledge, definitely their obedience was greater than ours, right? So this is the reason why they emphasize that the Sooners should be always given preference. For example, Sunni learn or be hanifa rahima hula huhtala either, Colin wakita Bala. He you hollyfield

Meaning we find out that one of your statements what you said contradicts what is in the Quran. Then what should be done in Abu hanifa replied, abandoned my saying relinquish it leave it when it is against the Quran. Then he was asked if you're saying is against the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then
what is to be done? He replied when my statement is against the Sunnah of the messenger is that a lot is Island then abandon it meaning abandoned my saying and instead hold on to the Sunnah he was asked if your statement is against the companions of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. He said, relinquish my statement when it is against the statements of the companions of the Messenger of Allah for the love of yourself. So what do we see here? That the Imams all of them, they gave preference to the Quran, the Sunnah, the Salah, and that should be our opinion as well. That should be our belief as well. That when it comes to understanding when it comes to applying the teachings
of the religion, then we have to look at the Quran, the Sunnah, and the companions, and then the rest of the scholars. Why the Quran, Sunnah and companions first.
Because what's the source of that? The Revelation the why Allah revealed to put on he sent a messenger, if the messenger IRD then Allah corrected him. The companions were the people of that time, whom the Prophet sallallahu Sallam taught us a key him he did their Ischia, your alumna whom he taught them the book, right, he taught them by the isn't of Allah what they did not know. So this is why our standard should be who Allah, His Messenger and the companions and then after them, other scholars call America blue NSN Rahim Allah innama Anna Bashar one of the oh well Cebu funds a little Pharaoh he for Coloma worship Al Kitab, Baba Sonata for hoodoo, who were kolomela mellem us fat
Roku, the Roku ignore October Phil, Jeremy, over here what you see in the brackets. Phil, Jeremy Gemma is the name of the book in the previous statement, fear aka DJ that is also a book. So Mr. Malik, when Anis he said that without doubt, I am a human being. I am only a human being my saying can be wrong or correct. It could be right and it could also be wrong. Therefore, ponder over my statement, analyze it, study it, whatever is in conformity with the book and the sooner then act upon it. And whatever is contrary to it, then leave it. So even the scholars What did they say that don't take our statement as the final statement. Don't consider it to be the final authority. No.
Always cross check with the book of Allah and the sooner the messenger settled on. If it is in conformity, then take it but if it contradicts it, then don't give any importance to it. And to share fury Rahim Allah in the wilcannia kulu either wotja to vikita bcnf Asana to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for kulu be su Natty whether through multiple Wi Fi rewiring flutterby ruha wallet LTE to enter Cali ahead in the car who ignore our second one Noah we will notify you now Michelle ferry stated that whenever you see anything in my book, which is against the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then leave my saying and act according to the Sunnah
of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In other narrations, it is mentioned that follow the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah and do not care for the statement of any other person. No individual whether it is me or anyone else, no, don't give importance to the statement of any other when it contradicts the statement of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now the question is, why would the statements of the scholars contradict the Quran and Sunnah in the first place? Because no human being has all knowledge Woolfolk, Olivia Inman, already above every knowledgeable one is one who is more knowledgeable is the one was all knowing. So no human being has
complete and absolute knowledge. And this is the reason why human beings are prone to making mistakes. So if a scholar if an Imam ever said something, then it doesn't mean that it's 100% accurate.
No, it doesn't mean that it's an established fact. No, it's quite possible that they made a mistake and human errors, right? They're always there in everything that people do. People do. So many things, you know, they have so much research and so many experts working on something, but yet they end up making mistakes, because human beings are weak wahala called internal briefer, we are weak. So, when we are weak, that means we forget that means we could misunderstand that means we could make a major mistake sometimes even right. So this is why what we say what we do as human beings it should not be given final authority. It should always be looked at in the light of the book of Allah
and the Sunnah of His Messenger. Allah Allah Muhammad Rahim Allah Allahu taala led to Kali duni. Well, not only do Malecon Walla
Walla, a soldier will hold them in high school, a very important statement, the karole felony, what's the statement, even though he mohalla he said, do not follow me. Do not follow me, nor email Malik nor email, Jeffery nor mm ozeri nor email masotti do not follow any one individual blindly, but rather did use the religious commands from those sources, where they have been deduced from or rather, where they deduced from meaning the scholars deduced from you follow the same what the scholars followed, and what did they follow the Quran and Sunnah. So you should also follow the Quran and Sunnah. Now over here we see the statements of four scholars who Imam Abu hanifa Imam
Malik, Imam, Shafi and Emma, Emma dibben. humble, who are these scholars? They are known as a four Imams, right, who had their mother. So you have the Hanafi madhhab. You have the Maliki mother. Have you have the chef every month Have you have the humble Lima have? Correct, but we see that all of these scholars, what did they say? That don't consider my opinion to be the final opinion? Nope. Always look at the Quran and Sunnah. And the statement of whom we should reflect on it. Look at the word that he used, he said lair to ollie dooney which means do not do my duck lead. Do not do my duck lead. What is this word duck lead? Has anyone heard of it?
Duck lead is from the letters of lambda. Allah ID which is from the same root is used for a colada rather is used for a garden and a garland something like a strap made of wool or some other material that was put around sacrificial animals. Where was it put on the next level? sacrificial animals when they were taken to the Haram in order to be slaughtered at the time of Hajj. Now, the kallada is what it's like a rope that is put around the neck of an animal Why? So that the animal is pulled from it right or that he is marked by it that this animal is a sacrificial animal. So from this comes over duck lead, which is blind following the dislike an animal blindly follows the master.
Wherever the master takes the animal, the animal goes, the master takes the animal right by the rope takes him to the field so that he can pasture the animal goes, the master takes the animal drags him all the way to the slaughterhouse. And the animal goes, he doesn't know whether he's going to be fed, he's going to be locked up, he's going to be let loose, he's going to be slaughtered. What's gonna happen to him he doesn't know he is blindly following without using his reason without using logic his mind nothing. So duck lead, it is different from a T bar. A t bar is reason following. What is it t bar reason following that you are deliberately consciously making that choice to follow
someone. And as you are following you are using your mind you're thinking, this is just like if you're following someone to a particular destination, your friend is driving the car and you are driving another car so you're following your friend. So we'll use your reason. As soon as a given indicator to the right you will move to the right lane. As soon as the speed up you will speed up when they slow down, you will slow down. So it's reasoned following and you don't just blindly follow. If you know you're supposed to go to Niagara Falls and you're following them and they end up not going to Niagara Falls but to take another road. You will stop and you will call them right you
will say what are you doing you sure we're going in the right way? You sure you didn't forget? It's reasoned thinking?
But the cleat on the other hand is blind following what is the cleat blind following? So all of the scholars they said do not do our duck lead. Do not do our cleat. Now imagine if the word the cleat was not used for the messenger sallallahu Sallam that we're not to do his duck lead were to do it, or does it affect that this word is used for any other person other than Him that we do there to clean? No, we're not to do to clean up the profits or losses in the now can we do the cleanup of any other individual? You understand? So the MLA said do not do our laclede at all. Instead, follow the messenger sallallahu Sallam followed up on
on a bee honey Fatah Rahim Allahu taala, a new carrier kulu Yakumo Ola fee de la, la la la de la conducta Berry, a suniti from Roger unha Bala, the Corrado filmyzilla an email Abu hanifa. He said that all people save yourselves from speaking from your own opinion in matters of religion and make it obligatory to follow the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam. Be careful, don't come up with your own opinions. Don't hold on to the sayings of other people. rather make it mandatory on you that you follow the Sunnah of the Prophet satellizer. Because whoever moves away from the Sunnah, then he has gone astray underlying this, whoever moves away from the Sunnah, then
he has gone astray. Why? Because the sooner what is that based on the worry? And anything other than that? What is that based on? The intellect of people, their own opinion, or their desires, their mistakes, and the intellect of people? It's not necessary that just because somebody thinks a particular way than they are 100% right? No, people can make mistakes. And everyone every individual looks at different things based on their past experience based on their bias. So this is why the opinions of people the understanding of people is not necessarily true. You know, it is said that once a hungry person was asked about the moon that what is this and he said bread because he was
hungry. So that moon look like back to him. A lover was asked about what is this? And he said the face of my beloved. And if you ask a scientist, then what will he say? It's the moon. So people look at things based on what their biases their past experience. So this is why the intellect of people is not the final thing. precept number 62 Mr. Abu hanifa considered acting on the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam as guidance and acting against the Sunnah as going astray and facade. And Abu hanifa Rahim Allah Allahu taala inorganica kulu lamea zelena Sofia solarin medema Fie him mania truebill hadiza for either tolerable ilma Bella Hadith in fussa do the Corrado Sharon
you film isn't you know hanifa stated that people will remain on guidance as long as there are among them students of Hades, meaning as long as people are learning the Hadees they're studying the Hadees they're understanding the Hadees then they will remain on they will remain on guidance this is what he said and when knowledge of the religion will be acquired without resort to Hades many one people will study their religion without looking at the Hadees then discord and mischief will occur among them, meaning then people will go astray, then they will fall into differences then there will be facade then there will be confusion and chaos. People will not know what is right, what is wrong.
And the endless battles and arguments will begin. And isn't that true? As long as people hold on to the sooner they are rightly guided to when they move away from it clinging on to other individuals, then they're astray. Then there's discord among the people. Again if you go to what people have to say then people will say it is okay but if you look at the Hadees if you look at the Quran, if you look at the statements of the scholars in the Quran, for example I will Hades is mentioned how did the companions interpret that even our bastard will lie he will Lena by Allah This is singing and music. So if you look at the Quran and the Sunnah, the way of the companions and it's very clear,
but when you look at what Rumi did and what so and so said then there will be confusion. Then people will say Oh, today percussion instruments are okay so if def is okay then drums are okay and then they will say okay, xylophone is also Okay. And then a piano is also okay and then from that guitar is also Okay, so then people will be lost. So the main thing that we learn is look at the Quran. Look at the sun.
And look at the companions. How did they interpret the text? What was their understanding? Look at the ways of the companions of the lion or more when he heard the flute, he put the fingers in the ears, right? So, always go for the text, and then inshallah this confusion will become clear.
then nobody told me why, like, what's the reasoning behind it? Then later when I studied, I realized that, you know, the hump of the camera like a woman, I'm like, Oh, that's probably what they were trying to tell me. But I never like for me, I'm like, Why can I not tie my hair? What if my hair is long, I don't want it coming out of my hijab. So it didn't make sense to me. Because there was just no reading it from whoever they heard. And a lot of times, that's how innovation comes into being they'll be like, oh, read this 1000 times, and you'll get your dua answered or read this, whatever. They're not telling you what the prophets that our system has said in his head. He said, somebody
said this to them. Exactly. Now they're just following blindly. Yeah, very true. That's one preset number 63. Mr. Malik's admonition to the person who looks for the opinion of others in the presence of the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is that such person will fall into mischief or will be punished severely. So Mr. Malik, when somebody was looking for an opinion, other than that of the Prophet sallallahu Salah, then he warned that such a person will fall into mischief, meaning fitna confusion or he will be punished severely. Java jiun illa Maliki Rahim Allah Allahu taala I must allottee for call Allahu Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Kedah waka
for Call of origin or ATIA Kala Malik familia de la Vina you Holly, funa and Emily and to sleep on fitna turn, oh, you Siva, whom are there? Aleem surah to note is 63 or wahoo Fisher Hassan. A person approached Imam Malik and inquired about a particular matter. In my Malik. He responded that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said such and such meaning he quoted a hadith in order to explain that in order to give the answer to the question to the person asked him, but what is your opinion concerning this? You understand what's going on? Mr. Maliki was asked a question he gave a hadith as the answer. But the man said but what is your opinion but what do you say? So in response,
Mr. Malik recited the verse that led those people beware who dissent from the profits order, that lust fitness strike them or painful punishment, that those who oppose the command of the messenger sallallahu wasallam. Let such people have fear that some fitna will fall upon them from Allah or that some painful punishment is going to strike them. In other words, who am I? Who am I to give my opinion, when the saying of the messenger sallallahu wasallam is there? Why do you ask me? Why are you asking me when the sun is present? So, when they gave such little importance to their opinions, when the sinner was present, then who are we to say that Oh, their statement is a final statement or
in mathematics at the so it has to be true, or Imam Shafi said this or it has to be true or Salento scholar said it, so it has to be true. No, we haven't been told to follow particular individuals. We have been told to follow the Quran and Sunnah and yes, leaders will be followed but when, but when when they are in accordance to the Quran and Sunnah. And we say that the reason why these scholars were like this is because they did not just prefer the Hadith, they had immense respect for the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they had great respect for the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Salah, we learned that once even Mubarak, he came from Cala San in order to study how
these from Mr. Malik came all the way from colasanti Medina to study under Mr. Malik, and once he was sitting in the class, and Mr. Malik was narrating the Hadees and he saw the face of Mr. Malik change, as if he was in a lot of pain. You know, when a person is in a lot of pain, and you can see they're going pale or red or whatever. So he seemed to be in a lot of pain and even Barack was confused at what's happening. And he saw that there was a scorpion walking from under Mr. Malik.
So basically that Scorpion had stung Mr. Malik, and several times the scorpion stung him, but his family did not even stop narrating the Hadees. And later on, even when Barack he asked him that, how come you did not stop? Why didn't you stop when you were in so much pain, he said that I was in the middle of the Hades. I was in the middle of the Hadees and I did not wish to cut it. I did not want to cut it halfway through. I wanted to complete the Hadees. So if this is the respect they had for the Hadith, and obviously, they would follow it as well. We can only imagine that they would follow the Hardys precept number 64 some sayings of mama chef sorry about the Sunnah of the Messenger of
Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said Mr. Muslim Muna Allah, a minister ban Allah who soon
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lamea hailed Allahu Ahad is totally ahead in the Quran, who will pay him well for learning that all the Muslims agree that whoever knows his Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, then for him, it is illegal to abandon the Center for the sake of a person saying, This is very important for us to remember that all of the believers, all of the scholars have unanimously agreed that if a person comes to know about a Sunnah of the messenger, sallAllahu wasallam, then it is not allowed for him that he should leave the center and go for the opinion of someone else, or go for the saying of another individual. So why is
it not allowed for a Muslim that he should leave the center and go for somebody else's opinion? Why not? there's confusion what else that this would lead to errors, this would lead to mistakes, right? The sooner the original teachings would be lost and one mistake would lead to another. And if people hold on to that which could be wrong, then they're choosing something that is lesser in its value. And the thing isn't what other people say, like we discussed earlier, it is based on people's intellect. Now for example, I remember that when I was growing up, it was said that when you brush your teeth and brush them up, down, and then we were taught that no brush sideways, and then we were
taught that no brush, round and round. Now, the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is using the miswak and cleaning the teeth thoroughly. Now, if you said that no, no, the best way is go up and down. And then you say no, no, the best way is go sideways. No, the best way is go round and round. Now, what people say, what people decide, eventually what happens. It is refuted by some study some scientific evidence, because people are constantly growing in their knowledge and discovery. But the sooner that is based on the why, right that is based on revelation. So it is we can be confident when following the Sunnah, that this is the best way. This is always right. This can never be wrong.
So this is why it's not allowed for a person that he should leave the Center for the statement of somebody else, others can be wrong they can be refuted, but the similar can never be wrong. It cannot be refuted, either at moonee akula colon or the Sahara and in Libya sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Maha Aleppo. Furthermore, unnaturally or the Hubba dakara who ignore be heartened by ignore a second, Mr. Michel ferry? He said that when you hear me talking against the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, then consider that my uncle did not work correctly, that I lost my mind at that point. And I'm a chef or he said this, that if you see that my statement contradicts the
sooner they know that I am at fault, not the center. Then note that I am wrong, not the center. Mr. Chef? Are you saying that think that my uncle was not working correctly? put the blame on me, not the center. I was wrong. Not the center, the center can never be wrong. And in this there is no humiliation? Because a person might say, oh, but isn't this insulting the scholars that we're supposed to respect them and know we have so much respect for a particular scholar? How could we ever say that they were wrong? How could we ever say that? They made a mistake? No, they could never be wrong. No, this is not disrespect. This is not disrespect at all. This is in fact, accepting the
truth holding on to the truth. The successful are those who accept the truth when it is given to them. Those who accept the truth when it is given to them. Not those who are arrogant, arrogant is what bottled will help.
Bottle This is rubbish. And what is humility? To accept the truth? What is the right way to accept the truth? Anisha fury or Hema who Allahu taala a neocon a guru either sahadi so for Who am I hubby? Wolfie de wiarton Edo item Konami holophone hadiza thermolabile her DC work Bri boo boo kalami and her Eva the Corrado fiachra G, Yama Scheffer, he stated that when you find an authentic Hadees then that is my religion, then that is my religion meaning that is my math hub that is what I will follow that is what I will hold on to. And then He further stated that if you find any saying of mine against the Sunnah, then act upon the Sunnah and throw away my saying on the wall, meaning cast it
away, get rid of it don't give any importance to it. Now again, why would they're saying contradict the Sunnah, because they did not have complete knowledge. They were prone to making mistakes. And sometimes it happens that you notice something something is so obvious to you yet you make a mistake. Isn't it?
So, like, what some people, what happens is that when they reach a particular age, they lose track of how old they are? Does it happen as people who don't want to acknowledge how old they are? Right? And if somebody asks them, how old are you? 33, right? They got a little unsure. Likewise, if people have, you know, they have their first child, then they remember, oh, my child was born on this day, on this date. I didn't know all the details at this time. And they have child number two and number three, and number four, and then sometimes they filling out the forms and they're like, was he born on the 13th? Or the 23rd?
Right? Was he born in the year 2005, or 2008? It happens. And if you say to someone, you don't remember their birthday, it says though, you've committed a sin.
So it happens, right? It happens to many people, they can't remember these details. They know them, they have to think in order to remember them. So some things you have done really well but yet because you're a human being, there's too much information that you have to keep track of you forget. So likewise, we will give the benefit of the doubt to the scholars, when we find out that their statement contradicted the Quran and the Sunnah, if ever it did, we will give them the benefit of the doubt, but we will not blindly follow it. Because they told us to follow the Quran and Sunnah preset number 65 email I had been humbled considered the foregoing of the Sunnah of the Messenger of
Allah sallallahu Sallam for the sake of a saying of any other person as an act of leading to destruction. So what did he say that if a person leaves a suit, no hold on to something else? Then he is going to be destroyed. Mm hmm. Rahim Allahu taala man wrote the Hadith Rasul Allah He for who are Alessia halaqaat in the Quran, who ignore Josie Muhammad stated that whoever rejects the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, then he is standing on the brink of destruction. He is standing at the edge of a cliff and he can fall at any moment. He is prone to destruction that he is going to go straight. Because what is he doing? He is disrespecting the sooner he is leaving that
which is correct and authentic and he's opt in for that which is not true. So definitely such a person who go astray. What color are you Oh, sorry, what are you mannequin? What are you a bee honey Fatah kulu Ian highlight this collura Ian, who are who are in this hour. We're in the Middle Georgia to fill SF. The CO editor of the book Phil Jeremy stated that the opinions of mmm Oh sorry, of Mr. Malik of Imam Abu hanifa are all opinions, what are they in reality, their opinions and to me, they all are the same meaning I give the same importance to all of them, none is better than another in my eyes. Indeed LSR is the only unquestionable authority and what are allow it includes the Hadith
and the status of the companions. So the real hedger the real evidence the real authority is with what the author not the opinions of the scholars because they were only opinions. person number 66. All the respectful emails considered obedience of the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam as a safeguard against going astray. Meaning the all of the scholars believed that if a person follows a subnet and he will be rightly guided and when he leaves a sooner than he will go astray. Allah chelation Rahim Allah Allahu taala in a sonata, other several Katia Sacco Butterbeer well at Tabitha there in Nagaland, Toby lemma hurstville Ethel. The Corrado Fisher has
stated that the son of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam overpowers your opinions, meaning the Sunnah will be given preference over the opinions of other people. Therefore, follow the Sunnah and do not adopt innovations do not adopt innovations because the opposite of the Sunnah is one, innovation. As long as you are steadfast in following the sinner, you will never go astray. And when you will leave the sooner then you will go astray, then you won't be rightly guided. So all of the scholars, this is what they had said. Now, what is the definition of
it is what the shape feel at Mohali to play something where it does not belong. So the order is the Quran and the Sunnah, the statements of the companions and then the then who
then the Imams correct. Now if a person puts the statements of the companions or the statements of the companions, where the Koran should be, then what is that?
Likewise, if a person puts the statements of the scholars with the submission be what is that one, and will miss something that Allah does not like? Allah does not like Luna at all. So likewise, in the matter of following the religion even we cannot do
what is hikma wisdom? What is the definition
Have hikma to play something where it belongs in the manner that is appropriate. So drew Heckman is one that you keep the Quran, you give it the respect the status, the importance that it deserves. And likewise, the status of the scholars you give it the importance, the respect that it deserves, but it is under the Quran, Sunnah. And the statements of the companions. What's the definition of
NOx default short in giving you rights? So what is the right of the Sunnah? That it has to be followed? Now if a person does not follow that and instead takes the opinions of other scholars, then is that one or not? It would be? It would most definitely be one. If the scholar stayed away from committing this little themselves, then who are we to commit this for? So it's very important that we understand how is it that this field or these different muda have developed? How is it that they developed Let me tell you a brief history, MLA, where was he from? From Medina, he was the student of who remember who was a student of Abdullah bin Romano. Right, who was a companion. So in
other words, he came very soon after the prophet SAW the light is, on the other hand about Abu hanifa was also he came not too long after the companions, Mr. Michel ferry, he learned from Mr. Malik first, he was a student of Mr. Malik. And he then went and he studied from the students of hanifa. Alright, I heard he was a student of Imam Shafi. So you see how young I was student of him, I'm a chef or chef or he learned the method of both Abu hanifa as well as the mama, they were students of one another. So could you ever say then that, oh, you have to abandon the opinion of Monica because I follow my family? No, they were students of one another. Why? Because they were
seeking knowledge. They were seeking the deen and they did not have these biases. It was much later, almost in the 1200s, that a time came when the people said that, oh, there are no more new matters of religion. So there is no need for scholars to bring solutions to new matters. Therefore, limit yourself, confine yourself to the understanding of my Malik among hanifa mcsheffrey Imam Ahmed, they said confine yourself to their understanding, because there is no more room for HD head, if the head is, you know, the efforts of the scholar in order to find a solution to a matter. So there is no more need for which they have because all the possible questions, all the possible problems that
could have ever arose, you know, the scholars have given solutions to them. But can you say that all the questions have been answered? No. There are so many matters today for which What do you need? It's the head, you need the scholars to sit together to look at the Quran and Sunnah and to give answers, right? Because there are some new matters that were not a cause of concern before. You know, for example, many scholars, they say that when a woman is menstruating, she cannot touch the Quran, or a person cannot touch the Quran without will do. Now, if a person does not have will do, can they touch the Quran on their iPhone? Or you say the Quran is on my phone? Can I put the phone
on the floor? A person might argue No, the Quran isn't there. But you can say no, I close the app. So what do you need? Then the scholars just sit together? Think about these matters, right? And tell us what is correct and what is not. Because such matters keep coming. Mr. Malik, he wrote a book.
And the leaders, the political leaders of that time, they really liked that book. And they wanted to make that the official book of the entire Islamic world that people just study this and they follow this and no other book. This is what they wanted to do. And Mr. Malik was asked twice, but he refused that No, I do not allow this. Because as a habit, they went all over the Muslim world, they taught and there are many things that are not in this book, I could have made mistakes, right? So don't make my book The official book. The only official book is what the Quran and after that we look at the Sunnah of the messenger satellite is in our hanifa he would not allow his students to
write down his opinions because he would say today I am saying this tomorrow, I could have another opinion and the day after I could have another opinion based on the knowledge that I'm learning every single day. And this was their humility, their recognition of themselves their realization that we are human beings and we have faults we make mistakes. So they did not allow their students to follow them blindly. Then who are we follow them blindly. We have to follow the Quran and the Sunnah, that is our guide, and our email mizue the email of all the Imams
Hamilton Allah, Allah.
So if somebody ever asks you, so which you Am, do you follow? What is your mother? You say I follow the Imam of all the memes and Who's that?
And the separate command like which must have which you say the feeling of the Prophet sallallahu Salah, the motherboard does have that is what we follow. And that is what we should follow. So Chronicle long will be heavily connected to La Ilaha. illa Anta Mr. Furukawa to be like assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
