Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu How y'all doing?

00:00:06--> 00:00:56

Leonardo pseudo he'll give him another word for the delay him in the shade line Allah Jean Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Baba strategy of Sati we're silly MD. of letter melissani of Coco Lee probenecid nirma chapter number 12. Daddy will be the 30th meaning the definition of albida the innovation. At the beginning of the book we learned about 34 Sunnah, the definition of Sunnah. Now we are going to learn about the opposite of the Sunnah, which is innovation, precept number 67. The literal meaning the linguistic meaning of the word innovation is to invent or to make something. In the Arabic The word bedarra is from the root letters bad and better, is to invent something to innovate something

00:00:56--> 00:01:43

in a form, the like of which has never existed before. What does it mean to innovate something in a form the like of which has never existed before, has this root appeared in any word in the Quran, or any word from this root? In the Quran, the dear Allah subhanaw taala is described as buddy or semi wet, you will have the Innovator of the heavens and the earth, meaning he has created the heavens and the earth, in a form that nothing like them ever existed before. Do you see what I mean? Nothing like the heavens and the earth ever existed before. So it is to innovate something in a form, the like of which has never existed before. Now what is bigger? What is innovation? according to Islamic

00:01:43--> 00:02:32

law, innovation means to introduce to invent in the religion something with the intention of gaining reward. Why does a person invent something in their religion? Why what's the purpose with the intention of gaining reward? And what is he inventing any such thing which is not to be found in the Sunnah? So something that does not exist in the Quran doesn't exist in the Sunnah. Nothing like it exists. A person invents it in the deen, why, in order to gain more reward, or in order to come closer to Allah soprano Tada. So this is just like the heavens and the earth, non existent. So a practice and action a ritual non existent and then a person brings it about why, in order to get

00:02:32--> 00:03:20

closer to Allah subhanaw taala I'm jabbing him near Abdullah he called Kama Sutra Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a murder for in the halal Hadith Nikita Bala well halal howdy howdy Mohammedan sallallahu alayhi wa sallam worship Marie maka to her wakulla Buddha artin Bala raha Muslim jabon Abdullah narrative that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said after praise and glorification, indeed the best of speech is the book of Allah. The best speech is whose speech the speech of Allah which is in the form of the book of Allah in front of us. And the best guidance is the guidance of the Prophet mean the guidance that has been given by who Muhammad

00:03:20--> 00:04:05

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam meaning the best instruction has been given to us by who, by Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam and the most even of affairs are the innovations and every innovation is error. So, we see that one thing is the book of Allah, another is the guidance the instruction of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and the third is what something that people have invented at the best speech Book of Allah, the best instruction of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, whatever is besides that what people have invented besides the Quran and Sunnah the innovations of people than what is that Balala it is misguidance meaning it is going to lead people astray. Now this what we have read over here from the

00:04:05--> 00:04:50

words amobarbital This is the meaning the opening hopper the words with which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam would begin any football. So you're talking about Jehovah, every Friday, you're talking about a thought but you're talking about the marriage contract that whenever the Prophet sallallahu Sallam addressed a large number of people, then before he gave his speech, these are the words that he would say almost every time almost every time so he warned the people very clearly that the book, the Sunnah, and then you cannot invent anything in the religion. No, you have to follow. You cannot invent another bout of necessity at all. All of a sudden reliance on Allahu alayhi wa sallam what a

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

yak one more on the 34 in a collaborative rotten banana robe no major, sorry, a bad urban sorry, a narrative that the Messenger of Allah Allah

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

Sallam said beware of introducing anything new in the religion because every innovation is error. We are not allowed to introduce matters in the dean, because anything that is introduced in the dean, what is that innovation? Because the fact is that the religion was completed, it was completed. And where do we find the deen in the Quran and the Sunnah? Anything that a person makes up after that, then that is innovation, and that will lead people astray. Mr. Malik, he said that whoever introduces into Islam and innovation, which he deems as good, meaning he thinks it's a good thing to do that, to have that practice to perform that action, then he has claimed that Muhammad sallallahu

00:05:45--> 00:06:23

alayhi wasallam has betrayed the trust of conveying the message. If a person introduces something in the deen and he thinks it's very good. For example, people go to do ombre, you know, they go to Makkah to the masjid. So people should also go to the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and stay there for a specific number of days and perform specific rituals, then this is what and innovation and if a person thinks that this is a good thing, that he has introduced something good in their religion, it's a good practice, than what is he implying? That Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam did not fulfill his responsibility of conveying the message? He said, read the saying of Allah

00:06:23--> 00:07:02

polyoma acmo to lacantina come to LA come near Mati, what are we to locomole Islam Medina, read the statement of Allah today I have perfected your religion for you completed my favor upon you and have chosen for you Islam as the religion. So when Allah said that their religion is complete, then who are we to introduce more things in green? If we are introducing more things in their religion, then we're saying either their religion isn't complete, or we're saying that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam did not fulfill his responsibility. He betrayed the people he betrayed, Allah knows Avila, Mr. Maliki said whatever was not part of religion that day, meaning the day when this ayah was revealed,

00:07:03--> 00:07:38

is not part of it today. And the last part of the oma will not be rectified, except by that which rectified the first part of the oma because sometimes people say, Oh, you know, these days, you have to tell people to read through the reprimand, 50 times because otherwise people will not even open the book of Allah. You have to have these events when everybody will come together and recite the Quran because otherwise they will not recite the Quran at all. You have to tell people to recite the name of Allah, you know, algebra or alcoholic 100 times 100,000 times because if you don't tell them, they will not read they will not say they will not make the wrong. But is this the way of

00:07:38--> 00:08:21

rectifying people? No, think about the state of the machine. How are they? How were they? What is it that rectified them the Quran and the Sunnah. So the same Quran and Sunnah that rectified those people is going to rectify the people of today as well. Right? And if we're saying no, we have to invent new ways of fixing people's habits, then we are innovating in the religion, then we're saying that the Quran and the Sunnah are deficient, and that is incorrect. So this is the reason why introducing things in the religion is something that is not acceptable at all. Now, when it comes to innovation, it must be very clear that innovation, it's a very particular kind of inventing things

00:08:21--> 00:08:56

in the religion and it has to be understood correctly. Because sometimes people say, Oh, if you think it's not good to introduce anything in the religion, then this microphone that you're using to talk to people about the deen This is also an innovation to the prophets of Allah doesn't ever use a microphone. He never used a microphone. So who are we to use microphones? Do you see what I mean? So it has to be understood correctly. And then sometimes people say, Oh, you're saying that we should not recite sort of 150 times? Why not? Isn't sort of a human part of the Quran? It's a part of the Quran? Don't you get reward for reciting sort of regimen? Of course you do. So I want to recite on

00:08:56--> 00:09:34

this particular day, these main number of times. So what's the harm? Do you see what I mean? Likewise, a person might say, you know what, I could be watching football with my friends. Or I could be attending this gathering where everybody's reciting the names of a lot together. I'd rather do the second. Do you see what I mean? They say, what's the big deal? I'm just reciting the name of Allah Allahu 100 times what's the big deal? At least I'm not doing something wrong. At least I'm not committing haraam. So when it comes to innovation, when it comes to bid, I remember that bid there is in acts that are intended to be acts of worship, and ways of seeking nearness to Allah. When I

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

hold a microphone, I don't think that I am, you know, performing an act of worship and nooners I don't think that this is a ritual to see what I mean. I believe that for my effort, for my striving for the money that was spent on this insha Allah, Allah will reward us but I don't believe that this is a ritual This is like performing Salah you know, if you hold a microphone as opposed to putting it on the stand, you get 100 good deeds.

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

30 good deeds, no, do you see what I mean? So, an innovation is what an act that is done with the intention that this is an act of worship or it is a way of seeking nearness to Allah. So, for example, a person says, you know, in Salah, you have to wear white clothing, you cannot perform Salah, in black clothes or a person says, when you performing the Salah, then you have to wear you know, this fabric, very rough and wool and you can press Allah and silk because that will make you do you know, comfortable, know, if a person you know, invent something such as this, that if he makes it a ritual, then that is an innovation, likewise, of a person, like what you mentioned that

00:10:46--> 00:11:28

people gathering together in order to do this together out loud, you know, everyone together, then fixing a number and thinking that this is an act of worship, this will bring certain benefits, this will remove certain harms that that is an innovation. Secondly, remember that innovation is also in matters that have no basis in religion, meaning, it's nothing like it is mentioned in the Quran, in the Sunnah. Nothing like it is mentioned in the Quran or in the Sunnah. So for example, you know, there are people who will say that the Quran has a hidden meaning, and we know that hidden meaning. Okay, and we'll tell you know, if it's a meaning that it will be found somewhere in the Quran and

00:11:28--> 00:12:10

Sunnah, if it's an interpretation correct, and it will be found somewhere in the Quran and Sunnah. Likewise, people gathering together to celebrate the birthday of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it doesn't have any basis in the Quran and Sunnah. No, did the Prophet sallallahu wasallam himself celebrate his birthday to the Sahaba celebrate his birthday? No, at his time, was it done? No, it has no basis in religion. Thirdly, it isn't matters whose description has no origin in the team, it is also in matters whose description This is the main point the description has no origin in the day. So for example, yes, we do you know, call upon Allah by his names, right? We say yeah, Allah,

00:12:10--> 00:12:59

Yemen, yada yada you we use the names of Allah to call upon him because that's what Allah has told us, but has a particular description when given that you recite this name and this time these number of times know that detail has not been given, okay. But if a person gives a detail and then he fixes that, then what is that and innovation, okay? Likewise, you know, an act of worship, such as the recitation of the Quran, a person specifies the time for you know, the certain sorta for reciting it a number, a location, this is what an innovation then Alright, so this is also important to remember anything else you can think of, that if you say that Eliza, Samir, and Arlene or bus lead, a Samira

00:12:59--> 00:13:38

bus lead, you know, 50 times after further than your eyesight will get better and you won't have to wear glasses ever again. If you read through the use of when you're pregnant, then you will have a beautiful child. If you read through that medium in your labor, then you will have a very easy labor. Now you are giving a form. Right you are giving a description, do an act of worship and the description does not exist in the Quran and Sunnah. Do you see what I mean? That description does not exist. So we cannot fix that description because that would be an innovation. Anything else? You can think of? That on Friday? You say? Yeah, we'll do it 1000 times and your husband will love you.

00:13:38--> 00:14:17

He will listen to you he'll become very submissive to you. So who said that? Is it somewhere mentioned or an instrument that you have to say the name of Allah dude 1000 number of times to get this benefit? No, you are fixing a detail a description that does not exist in the Quran and Sunnah. Fourthly, it is also in matters of feral and dark, what does it mean? Fair means to do and talk means to leave. So innovation is not just about doing something that does not exist in the Quran and Sunnah. But it is also leaving something that you have to do and saying that no, you don't have to do that is also an innovation, that for example, in the Quran, from the sooner we clearly learn

00:14:17--> 00:14:28

about the ruling of hijab, but people will say, No, you don't have to do that. Right. And they will use evidence from the Quran and Sunnah that are irrelevant to prove that there is no hijab,

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

right? That are irrelevant, irrelevant evidences from the Quran and Sunnah to prove that there is no future, they will say, Oh, the word hijab in the Quran has been used in this and this and this and this part, look not even once has it been used for the hijab of the woman? Yes, the word hijab has not been used, but a greater word has been used, in fact, and what is that? Jill Babb? You're talking about her job unless you use the word Jill Bob. So, this is also an innovation or that a person says you know, I'm a Muslim and you don't have to pray five times a day who said you

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

You don't have to it's not necessary. So these are also innovative matters. So whether it comes to fairly autoreply question that a person thinks, you know, if I don't have meat at all, Allah will be happier with me. So I'm not going to have meat, I'm not going to eat meat ever again, I'll become a vegetarian, or become a vegan, even more strict, I'll become a vegan, and that's it, I will not have any meat and Allah will reward me more because remember, the intention is what? To gain more reward. So likewise, if a person feels that by not praying five times a day, he is a more righteous person, or by not wearing hijab, she's a more righteous person, which actually people do believe that they

00:15:41--> 00:16:22

are being more righteous by not wearing the hijab by not praying, the Sunnah. So this is also an innovation, or they say, or hijab doesn't matter, you know, your manners, your etiquette, all of this matters. So anyway, innovation is in matters that were invented after the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So when were they invented? after the time of the Prophet sort of answer, because if there was something done in his time, right, then remember, we learned about Sonata Korea, he approved of an action. And if he did not approve it, we know that it's wrong. To see what I mean, if there was an action done by someone else during his time, and he approved of it, that means it's a

00:16:22--> 00:17:00

part of being it's accepted, it's a righteous act. And if he disapproved of it, then that means it is something forbidden. So if it's something done, after the ear of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, then he did not approve of it. He did not disapprove of it. So it's a newly invented matter. Do you see what I mean? But one more thing we have to remember is that an innovation is that whose justification existed during the time of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, meaning it could have been done. So for example, reciting Surah Rahman 50 times could this have been done at his time? Yes, he could have told the people somebody could have come and asked him, isn't it? So you know, reciting

00:17:00--> 00:17:15

the particular name of Allah 100 times? Could he have approved of it? Yes, he could have, you know, the justification may exist. But we know that nothing like that happened ever. Like we're celebrating his birthday. It could have been it did not.

00:17:16--> 00:18:02

You see what I mean. And the third thing is that while no obstacle was there, while no obstacle was there to prevent their establishment, so in other words, Vitor is an action that was done after his lifetime. So a lot of them, it could have been done during his lifetime, nothing prevented him, yet he did not do it. If we remember this definition, it will be very easy for you to understand what it is. And it'll be very easy for you to check whether something is an innovation or not. Let me clarify this point for you a little bit more. So you see a new matter, it could have been done, nothing prevented him sort of them from doing it. And yet he did not do it. If all these three

00:18:02--> 00:18:43

things are true with regards to an action, then that would be an innovation. Let's take the example of celebrating the birth of the prophets of Allah etc. Could it have been practiced? Is there a possibility? Yes. Right. Meaning that people not know when he was born. People knew, right? Did people not love him? Yes. Did people not have respect for him? Yes. People had respect for him. Right? And how do we show our love and respect for someone by remembering their birthday? You might say no, but this is in our culture today. But back then also, we know that when the profits or losses that are migrated to Medina, later on it was that the Hijri calendar was established. We know

00:18:43--> 00:19:28

that in our Deen remembering dates is very, very important. There are so many times it's mentioned Hillel. I mean, it's so important dates are very important. So if a date such as this was important to remember, important to celebrate, would he not have celebrated it? Yes. So that means that it could have been done. Next thing, nothing prevented the Prophet sallallahu Sallam from doing it. Was there some verse in the Quran some permission from Allah? subhanaw taala? No, there was nothing preventing him from doing that. But did he do it? No, he didn't do it. So yet he did not do it. So yes, yes, yes, that means it's a bitter. Let's look at another example. Are you hooked up before the

00:19:28--> 00:19:59

prayer before they eat Salah? How is the return outperform the return is first and then you have the hotbar? Now, is there a possibility that the Prophet sort of all sudden could have reversed the order? He could have to make it more convenient for people? Right? That everybody's coming Okay, the hope I should begin and then when everybody's together, then praise Allah together. So many people miss each other because of this right? could he not have swapped the order? He could have nothing prevented him? There was no difficulty then yet he did not do it. That's right. He didn't do it. So that means if today if it

00:20:00--> 00:20:36

And swaps the order then what would that be bitter. Another example that oh, we have prayer, through prayer means that in the month of Ramadan, in the night, all the people are praying families together in one jamara. Like not in different different houses one person brings up or the other person is praying separately, or one person standing in the corner of the machine or the person standing in another corner of the machine. No, all the people are praying together behind one Imam, this is what that prayer, could it have happened at the time of the prophets of the Law Center? Yes, he could have led everyone every night of the month of Ramadan, and nothing prevented him. No,

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

something did prevent him. What prevented him the fear that it might become obligatory. So there was a reason why he did not do it, the fear that it might become obligatory, and he did not do it. So is this a better? No, it's not a bit though. Why? Because he did the action. There was a reason why he didn't do it regularly in this particular way. So which is why later on when our motto below or on who and he was a halifa. And he made people pray together. Don't think that it's better. Or if these days you go to the masjid and pray together don't think that it's a bitter, it's not a bitter? Let's look at another example use of microphone. Could it have been done at the time of the Prophet

00:21:20--> 00:22:01

sallallahu Sallam? No, nothing prevented him? Is that true? No. Something that prevents him that technology does not exist. Right? And he did not do it. Yes, he didn't do it is a bitter? No, it's not a bit though. You just need to think a little bit more. analyze these examples again and again. And you'll get it until it's a little technical. But any action that you want to check, is it better or not put it in this, this is the test. Okay, so let's continue. So this is what a bigger is a newly invented matter, that did not exist at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, it could have happened, nothing prevented him yet he did not do it better is something done in order to

00:22:01--> 00:22:27

attain closeness to Allah subhanaw taala to get more, you know, for example, but any other action that a person does, like using cream profits, or lots of them didn't use cream, using a phone, right? Basically the way our lives are these days. This is not this is not innovation. Why? Because you're not saying it's religious to have an iPhone? No, don't get confused

00:22:28--> 00:23:08

between rabada and bitter. What is it Reba. Reba is an action that a person does? Why? diggin Allah subhanaw taala is love. But remember that action in itself is permissible, it is permissible, which is why I believe that even when I'm cooking for my family, with patience, you know, good food, then that is also an act of worship. Why? Because I hope that Allah will reward me. So that is Reba. bedarra is different that you are inventing something, you're saying that this is part of religion, this is part of Sharia. If you do this, you'll get this this much reward. If you don't do it such and such harm will happen. You know, recently a sister came to me and she said that one of her

00:23:08--> 00:23:44

friends, she got married to someone, and this person believes in the tomb of a particular saint, because of him that I have whatever I have, and it's because of him, I suffer what I suffer. So I have to ask him, and I cannot do anything wrong, because otherwise he will be upset. He fears him as though he fears Allah and the wife is wondering, what should I do? What should I do to fix them? Or to make him understand that look, that person who's in the grave cannot do anything to you can't even help themselves? So how can he help you, but when people make these things apart of religion, that look this person in the grave, he can harm you, he can benefit you, you know, making it a part

00:23:44--> 00:24:21

of religion, that is a problem. And from this, remember that Buddha is in two things, it is in matters of a leader, as well as in armor. It is when it comes to beliefs, and also when it comes to actions. And both are not right. Now, a question was asked, so what's the big deal? And that is people will say we love the profits that allowed us and then we want to celebrate his birthday. Come on, what's the harm? We're just singing, you know, singing songs of praise? We are reminding one another of him. You know, we're telling other people about how good he was. So what's the harm? What's the big deal, it is a big deal. And that we will learn about in chapter number 13, which is

00:24:21--> 00:25:00

them will be the them will be the other them have the contempt for innovation, the harm of innovation, the adverse consequences of innovation. The first thing that we must remember is that all innovations are misguidance. Remember, there are these that we learned earlier, that there is Balala, it is misguidance it is error. So all innovations are misguidance. You might feel that it's not a big deal, but it will lead a person astray. It will lead a person astray. precept number 70 that the division of innovations into good innovations and bad innovations is against the sort of the message

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

Have a loss of the loss. Some people will say, Oh, this is bedarra Hashanah. This is a good innovation. This is a good thing. Meaning, you know, would rather sit together and recite total reprimand, 50 times and go watch football. So it's a good thing. You know, I scared all the girls, if you use salt carelessly than all the salt, you have to pick up with your eyelashes on the Day of Judgment. Yes, somebody told me that when I was a little girl and I got freaked out. So this is what BladeRunner theta, right? This is innovation in belief. So an A person might say, Oh, this is a good innovation. You know, it's, it's stopping a person from doing something wrong, right? Or it's making

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

a person do something good, something better. But remember that every innovation, whether you believe it's good or bad, it is still bad. Why? Because it is an innovation on Jabba Abdullah Alcala, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Umberto for in a halal ha detectible la? Well, hiral had he had you Mohammedan or Sharon Moody, Masha to her, or Cola, bitter rotten banana mustard, we have read this Hadees before and this we read very clearly, that every innovation is misguidance it's amazing that people will practice innovation, why? In order to come closer to Allah, but the Buddha does the exact opposite thing. It leads a person astray. And every learner is where in the

00:26:25--> 00:27:09

fire, a person might be doing something to get to Jenna. Whereas in reality, he is doing something to get to hellfire. It's the exact opposite. Now, there are people who say that brother Hassan, you know, this is something that is acceptable, and it should be done. And they actually have evidence to support that one evidence, for example, they say is that or monopoly on who when he made the people pray together? In the month of Ramadan? We have prayer, he said that this is good to say, look, we can do with our two and we call it good with arts for good reason. But they misunderstand his statement. When he said good, better, he didn't mean better, as in the bidder that the profit or

00:27:09--> 00:27:49

loss on condemned, can you even think that or modeling or who would do something like that? No, it's not possible. He meant the word better in its literal sense. Okay, that this is in good new practice. This is a good new practice. Like you say, Oh, this is new. That's nice. Right? We say that all the time. This is the latest thing. And this is the newest model, right? And we say that's good. So when he said this is a good bit, or he didn't mean better as an innovation in religion, no, he meant is a good new practice that all the people were praying, you know, separately. Some people didn't even know how to read Hold on. Because there's so many people embracing Islam every day,

00:27:49--> 00:28:27

others were not even able to do PM, right, others are becoming lazy. So this is a good new trend that everyone is now praying together. Right? In jumar, in congregation, everyone gets the chance to pray. Another proof that people use is the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, which we learned very early on in this book, that whoever introduces something good, then he will have the reward of doing that good thing himself and also, for all those people who follow him after that. So they say, look, introduce something good. So we're introducing good things in the team. But in that had these again The sooner What does it refer to reverses when other prophets have a lot of settler

00:28:28--> 00:29:02

and inventing does not mean invent over there. It means reviving, and the context of the Hadees should be remembered the context was that once a companion, he was very poor, the Prophet totalizm saw his poverty and he encouraged the rest of the people to give in charity. So a man came and he gave something in the hand of that poor person. And when other people saw they also got up and started bringing things in in order to give to that poor individual. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam smiled and he said this, that whoever start something good and all people who follow him, right, so he'll get their water doing good himself, and also the rest of the people who follow him

00:29:02--> 00:29:48

in that aren't either in bed with me Sorry at the corner Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Maria komamura in Colaba. tombola. We have read this earlier as well. Pilar de la Huebner model de la mer on whom that couldn't live without him Allah Allah wa inra. NASA has Santa Rosa who dare me. Remember the statement that are delivered Omar said that all innovations are misguidance even though even though the people may consider them to be good, we're in LA and NASA meaning even though the people may see it to be has no meaning whether people consider it to be good or bad, it doesn't matter. All innovations are misguidance. You might say how, why? Because the thing is that bigger

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

innovation like it was mentioned earlier as well it replaces the sooner every time an innovation is introduced a sooner is lost. When people practice innovation, they think you're doing something so good that because of

00:30:00--> 00:30:43

That they will not do things that are approved by the Quran and Sunnah, like a person will think, look, I read five Jews, you know, or how many sutras? You know they have a certain number of Sutras, particular sutras surah, Yasin Rahman and Walker. Right. So a number of zeros, a person may tell you, I read so much code on every day. So what if I don't wear hijab? So what if I miss one Salah this year? I mean, so it makes a person belittle the rest of the deen. And it does not allow him to practice the rest of the deen because he thinks he is so pious, he thinks he's doing something so good. And the thing is that innovation most innovations are what difficult? It is a difficult thing

00:30:43--> 00:31:21

to do. So when people are reciting a sutra over and over and over again, is their heart in it? No. Do they have for sure? No. Are they enjoying that prayer? No. So will they have for sure in the regular prayers? No way? Will they have time to sit and recite and reflect on the Quran? No. Will they have patience to stand at the end? No, because they say, oh, I've been, you know, my head is hurting. I've been staring at those pages and passing my finger over those lines. for five hours. Now I'm hurting. I can't read the evening doors. So the question is that what if somebody tells you to do something? And you do it because they're apparently telling you something good, and you don't

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

know if it's an innovation or not? So what should you do? You should remember before doing anything, that somebody says, Oh, you should do this. And this is the benefit. Always check. What's the evidence? What's the reference? Okay? Always ask, always find out and doesn't mean that you ask them in a challenging way. Ask in a curious way. And also remember that the solution to ignorance is what? gaining knowledge so hamdulillah now that you're here studying the Quran, as you will study the Quran, many things will become clear to you. Then we learned that the curse of Allah is upon the person who helps an innovator if the curse of Allah is upon the one who helps an innovator Then what

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

about the innovator? What about the innovator? It is a big deal, isn't it? And Ali, you know, the lower on Hong Kong, Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Latin Allahumma Anza Holly ley de la he will learn to love them and subtle commonality of the will learn to love him and learn our leader who will learn to love him and our more distant raha Muslim, or the lower on her narrative that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, Allah curse, the one who sacrificed for anyone else besides Allah, meaning the person who offer sacrifice for other than Allah than the curse of the lies upon him, and Allah curse, the one who stole the signposts? What does it mean by this? What

00:32:42--> 00:33:29

it means is that, you know, if there is a particular piece of land, and it is divided, and people have certain marks over there, do distinguish between one person's lot from the others lot. And let's say there is a fence or there is, you know, a line that has been painted or something like that, or bricks that have been put right to mark the boundary, exactly the point of distinction. So if a person moves that in order to make his lot bigger, and the others lot smaller than unless curses on him, he moves it. So the others will think, oh, so their lot is bigger, it comes up to here. And a locker is the one who cursed his father, the one who curses his father a locker says

00:33:29--> 00:33:35

that person. In other Hades we learned the companions, they were amazed that why would a person curse his own parents?

00:33:36--> 00:34:19

What are the prophets, I'm allowed to say? that a person curses the parents of another. And so he curses his parents in revenge. But these days, it's amazing how people actually curse their own parents, especially our young ones. I don't want to say to younger do adult because there's somewhere in the middle there actually adults, teenagers, right and beyond. But it's amazing how they literally curse their own parents. I hate my mom, I wish you would be in a way far away from me. Or little kids will take go away. This is what cursing right curse means about an alarm, you know, be far removed from the mercy, so go away. So the one who curses his parents are lucky and

00:34:19--> 00:34:59

unlucky versus the one who accommodates an innovator in religion, the one who helps him support him accommodates him, then Allah curses that individual too. And we learned that every act of innovation is rejected by a law. This is a big deal. This is how it's a big deal that every act of innovation is something that is rejected by Allah, that a person thinks he's doing something good, he will actually be rewarded for it. He will actually benefit from that good deed. But in reality, that effort that striving is going to bring him no benefit nor reward. It's a useless act. It's in vain. On our issue 30 Allahu unhealth audit, call it a sort of life.

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

Allahu alayhi wa sallam when a fee emelina Heather Melissa fee for whoever done whatever con la, I shall bid on her narrative to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, Whoever does an act which is not found in the religion than that deed is rejected by a law. It's rejected, it's not accepted at all. Because what are the two conditions of deeds being valid, pure intention, and secondly, according to the Quran and Sunnah, so something is not according to an internet newly invented thing, then it's rejected. In throttle kochava. Last pound Tata says about those people who were subunit unknown, your sooner sooner, they think that they're doing very good. They think that

00:35:41--> 00:36:21

they're doing something great, but in reality, it will be rejected. So imagine a person is putting in so much effort reading one sort of after another, you know, a number of times reading one after the other. So much money is sometimes spent into this, so much time is dedicated to this. I remember one of the sisters she mentioned about how once you went home from school, and her mother said that you have to come sit with the rest of the ladies, and you have to come and read a particular record. I don't know how many times she said all her evening went to that she said I was so tired, my head was hurting, I felt almost sick. And then I couldn't do my homework, I couldn't do my work. And I

00:36:21--> 00:37:04

went back to school for a test or for some assignment that she wasn't able to submit. So much hard work has gone into it. And at the end of the day, what reward do you get? Zero? Nothing at all. This is a very big problem, that innovation actually makes the dean more difficult. And then when there are people who don't know the dean, who are far from the dean when they see that this is the dean, they say, Oh, this is too difficult. We're not doing it. I can't sit there read Quran, you know, read this surah 50 times there's no way I can read this word, or this they could 100 times 1000 times and you hear but strange numbers 50,000 100,000 200,000. Really? You hear about these numbers?

00:37:05--> 00:37:46

They know in the sauna, what do we learn maximum 100 to kind of lie behind the undertaker when we learned that the repentance of an innovator is not accepted until he gives up the innovation. Even if a person says you know Oh ALLAH forgive me. I may be doing something wrong. Please forgive me know that Toba is not accepted he has to leave that innovation he has to completely abandon it, then only it will he still will be accepted. And NSF pneumatic in the long run who call cholera sutala Hassan Allahu alayhi wa sallam in the law, the head of automata unclearly sahibi be directing Hata Darby data who are who Pavani you and so when Malik Narita that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu

00:37:46--> 00:38:29

Sallam said, Allah does not accept the abundance of an innovator until he leaves the innovation. He has to leave the innovation so that his Dawa may be accepted. And the thing is, that the innovation actually prevents a person from preventing it's a vicious cycle a person is doing is to fall Toba. That's not being accepted. Why? Because he's doing innovation, and that innovation will not let a person repent from the innovation. Why? Because the person thinks he's doing good. So Will he ever leave it? No, he won't leave it. To save oneself from falling into innovation is a command meaning it is imperative that we must save ourselves from falling into innovation, we must guard ourselves

00:38:29--> 00:38:57

against bitter, unadulterated badly that the alarm on our corner sort of lies on the Lord he was settled on. What a year come we'll be dairy aroa who blew away awesome. He could have soon rebelled with little or no narrative that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, or people save yourselves from innovations, meaning stay away from them. Why? Why should a person stay away from them? Because it is what leads a person astray.

00:38:58--> 00:39:39

Better is what leads a person astray. It leads a person to confirm it leads a person to greater wrongs. Even sitting inside the fastest people to leave religion are the people of innovation, who the people have innovation, meaning if someone was to come out of the who goes very fast, it goes very quickly. Those who are already in bigger because weather is a step to leaving Islam. Because a person says oh, I can also invent things in the religion. I want to do this. Let me try it. Let's pray like this. Let's pray like that. Then the next step is what doesn't? I'm not gonna do it. I'm not gonna do it. So what if it's in the Quran? So what if it's in the sooner then a person begins to

00:39:39--> 00:39:43

question the authority of the Quran and Sunnah even. So there are leads to

00:39:45--> 00:39:48

this is why the scholars call the people without the people of desires.

00:39:50--> 00:39:54

And also remember that a police

00:39:55--> 00:39:58

How did he make other Melissa lamb burn the anger of Allah soprano

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

How, how did you make him make a mistake? He tempted him. He said, that you eat the fruit of the tree, and you will become angels. And when you will become angels, you will worship Allah even better, you will become so perfect, so obedient, that Allah will never be upset with you to see what I mean.

00:40:25--> 00:41:09

And this is exactly what it is that you do this, so that Allah will be even more happy with you. You do this so that you can earn this much more reward. And when a person does that he's actually going astray. He's actually in the path of misguidance away from Jenna away from guidance. And he is in such a cycle that he doesn't even come out of it. This is why they said the children likes bedarra more than sin. Why? Because people don't leave with our wares they will leave sin. On the Day of Judgment the innovators will not be allowed to drink water from the fountain of ghosts of so is it a big deal? It is on the Day of Judgment the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam will express extreme

00:41:09--> 00:41:56

Already for whom we are the Fulani sama you Hello benei verbania home for Hulu in the hominy for you call in Nicoletta De Lima de su bardock for a colusa concert on Lima Malaya, Roberto de la Sadie been saddled with our new narrative that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I will be there before you at the close of at the health coaster at the pool of cursor. And whoever will come to it will drink from it meaning on the Day of Judgment, the gathering of pressure, I will proceed

00:41:56--> 00:42:39

you I will go to the house before you and I will wait there for you. And whoever will come to it will drink from it. And whoever will drink from it will never become thirsty after that. Whoever will drink from the hold will never become thirsty after that. And they will come to me some people whom I will recognize and they will recognize me, meaning I will recognize them to be people of my oma and they will recognize me as the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then a barrier will be set up between me and them, meaning they will not be allowed to come to me. I will say those people are from me, meaning they're the people of my own. But it will be said you do not know what

00:42:39--> 00:43:24

changes and new things they invented after you. You don't know how they change their religion after you and what new things they invented in the deen after you then I will say far removed far removed for certain concerns on those who changed their religion after me. So what do we see over here that such people those who innovate will not be able to drink from the house even on the day of judgment and the profit or loss center will be extremely angry with them. He will distance himself from them he will say take these people away from me. And when that is the case, yes, he will not even intercede for them because if you say go away, get away from me you think you will intercede for

00:43:24--> 00:44:08

them? No way. Then we learned that the curse of Allah the angels and all of mankind is upon those who introduced innovations in the religion and Aslam in color to the NSN hamama Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Medina to Allah. Ma vena cava ilica de la Yokota, Lucia Durham and either the fee her had done finally he learned to LA he will Malaya equity one nasty edgy marine with difficult la awesome narrative that I asked unecessarily Allahu anhu whether Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had declared Medina as sacred, that just as Makkah is sacred, is Medina also sacred. So he replied, Yes, the area between so and so, meaning from this point to that point,

00:44:08--> 00:44:55

this entire area is haram just as Mkhize Hello, this area Medina from this point to this point is also Haram. And he said so its tree is not to be cut meaning just like the trees of Makkah. mean the trees that grow themselves, the plants that grow themselves, you don't cut them. Likewise, those in Medina, those that grow themselves, you cannot cut them, and he who made any innovation in it, there is upon him the curse of Allah and that of the angels and all of mankind. Why? Why is it worse to innovate in Medina? Because there is what opposite of Santa? And if people will see something being practiced in Medina, What will they think? It must be right? Must be good. So I'll do it too. And

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

this is what people say we saw. You know, Arabs do this. People say this a lot, right. There are just

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

What what Arabs do? Their job is what they saw people doing in Mecca and Medina. That's their proof. So if a person innovates something, it is worse but if he innovates something in Medina it is even worse. It is even worse. This is the reason why the curse of Allah, the curse of the angels and all the people is on him. Then we learned that the one who starts in innovation will not only bear the retribution of his own sin but also of all those people who act upon that innovation oncotherapy of delay him near near often Amazon he had definitely a big deal and that also relies on a low already with seller McCall.

The theater bin Abdullah Ahmed bin ofin was and he stated that my grandfather related to my father and he related to me that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, Whoever revives once enough for my son, and people act upon it and the person who revived my sadhana will be entitled to the reward of all the people who act upon it, and their water the people will not be reduced at all. And the person who starts an innovation, and people start to act upon it, the sins of all those who act upon

00:46:24--> 00:47:06

it will be upon him who started the innovation and the sins of the people will not be reduced at all. To innovating in the religion doesn't just bring the person the sin of what he has done, but also the sin of all those people who have followed him on ebihara under Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a call Mandara in a Hooda Canada hoomin allegedly misled Judy mantova who Lyon Casa del camino del Rahim Shire woman de la boletin Kenner la Jimenez SP mismo se mi mantova who Lyon Casa de Luca min FM insha.

Similarly, the person who called others to misguidance will receive the retribution collectively of all those who acted upon it, and the retribution of the others will not be decreased at all. So when is that a person follows a sooner and passes on that great reward. And the other is that a person practices a bidder and he spreads that bitter as well and that is great punishment. inshallah, we'll conclude over here. In this chapter, basically, we're learning about the adverse effects of innovation, so I want you to list them. Make sure you know in point form that what are

00:47:44--> 00:47:52
