Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, shalom more he wants to have that in our COVID-19 Bala wakulla Bala.

00:01:21--> 00:01:33

My dear brothers and sisters, I think Allah subhanho wa Taala for bringing us here together, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that he gathered us again, in the company of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam agenda to

00:01:35--> 00:02:24

the topic of tonight's discussion is let your study be worship. And what we mean by study is the study of Islam is the study of a loss of a high level what the Allah is Beautiful Names is perfect attributes that which is compulsory upon us to do in light of us being slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala how to perform your Salah, how to perform your widow, and your Hajj and your Angola and how to be businessmen in Islam, and how to be with your wives and your husbands and your children. The knowledge of all of these things and more. How do you make the study of all of these things? How do you make it worship? The hood bar that I recited before I started is called cook bottle hija the

00:02:24--> 00:03:08

football of need, which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would recite before starting his talks. And at the beginning of a nigga before the football and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would teach it to others. And the only way that you and I that we know that this is something which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did allotted his because his companions understood that if the religion of Islam was to be continued and was to carry on from one generation to the next, people would have to study it and teach it to others. People would have to study it and teach it to others. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said Burnley Rouhani was

00:03:09--> 00:04:01

then conveyed from me. It is one verse, only one verse, and today Alhamdulillah we find ourselves as Muslims living in Sri Lanka or in South Africa or in many other parts of the world. We find ourselves learning much about Islam. We grow up reciting learning how to recite the Quran. But how many times have we conveyed that to someone else? How many people have you taught Alif bata? And those you know that method that you studied the recitation of the Quran through how many people have you impacted with that knowledge? How many juveniles do we attend every Friday around the world? And how many of those could was do can we take and summarize and go home and tell our wives that today,

00:04:02--> 00:04:15

in that 30 minutes or 20 minutes or 40 minutes, I learned these three these three things, these four things, and then teach your wives and your children? So the question here is, firstly,

00:04:16--> 00:04:59

how do we encourage ourselves and we motivate ourselves to study the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala because the study of the religion is not is not restricted to the people with big beards. The study of Islam is not restricted to the people that way turbans, the study of Islam is not restricted to the people whose titles are shared, and molana and EMA. And whatever other title is given around the world, it is not restricted to these people, but rather, it is the duty of each and every one of us as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam beautifully tells us that tolerable

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

elmy furreal go to La La coonley Muslim, that this that the seeking of knowledge is compulsory upon every Muslim. Not a Sri Lankan Muslim, not only a South African Muslim, not only a Saudi Muslim, upon every single Muslim male or female, regardless of their ethnicity, their nationality, or the color or language of, of the passports doesn't matter. We have been commanded by Allah subhanho wa Taala, to study and to know our religion.

00:05:35--> 00:05:43

Now in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and it's very important that sometimes we transport ourselves back to that particular community.

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

I want you all to imagine with me, that you are sitting in mercy to nabawi and if you have never been there before, may Allah subhanho wa Taala facilitate for you a trip to mosquito who Allah. But imagine that 1430 years ago, you were sitting in mosquito nabawi

00:06:08--> 00:06:18

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had just spray the Isha Sala. And after the Salah, he turned around, and he spoke for 20 minutes.

00:06:19--> 00:06:27

Imagine that you are in that Masjid, and you are listening attentively to what the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is saying,

00:06:28--> 00:07:14

what would what kind of zeal motivation? Would you be sitting? How would you be listening to him? Would you be paying attention? Would you fear that you would miss a single word? All of us would be sitting way with no thought but to try and memorize and understand as much as what the prophets Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam was saved. And today, we don't have the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam amongst us. But what we do have is that we have his life. We have his sooner we have his statements. They are they are that shelf over there. You have you had to silo in and other collections of Howdy. Many of you you have that at home. You have Bukhari and you have Muslim riada,

00:07:14--> 00:07:32

Salatin balumama it's on your shelves. And every time you open it annuity, that is the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaking or that is a companion telling you that I saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam do this. I saw him go Yeah.

00:07:34--> 00:07:49

So with that zeal, that motivation for the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam we need to understand that the Prophet encouraged these companions to learn when a person would accept Islam. Did they just say martial law?

00:07:50--> 00:08:42

You know, welcome to Islam, and that was the end of it. When are available what are the Allahu Akbar? When he accepted Islam after the Battle of burdell? What is the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell his companions? He said, I live all Khurana teach him teach him the Quran. What does that mean? He's an Arab. He doesn't need to learn the Arabic language. Teach him the Quran. Let him understand the Quran, let him know that which is reciting 150 houfy D and give him an understanding of his religion. Because it is not enough to read the Quran. How many people in our communities have memorized the Quran from cover to cover? But yet if you ask them that, oh, my dear brother, my dear

00:08:42--> 00:09:01

sister, explained to me what the loss of a hat or darkness is in the surah how many people would be able to explain that to you? Why? Because they have not been taught and need to understand the book. Many people today, they asked what is so amazing about this Koran,

00:09:02--> 00:09:46

that people in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa send them the atoms, they would hear a few verses and they would accept Islam. Today, if we read Quran to the Christians and the Hindus and the Buddhists that live in this country and other countries in the world, and we read the Quran to them, would they just accept Islam? Masha Allah, I love this book, and just accept it. That's very rare. The reason for it is because they do not understand it. And the reason why we are not attached to the book is because we don't understand it. But this is a problem. But what is the solution then? The loose solution to all of these things for us to learn and understand the Quran is if you and I

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

dedicate ourselves to the study of this beautiful deed, the study of the Arabic language will llahi what a liberating what an enjoyable study. It is difficult at the beginning.

00:10:00--> 00:10:14

is difficult I will I won't lie to you but will lie the sweetness that you taste and enjoy after you when you standing in thought oh we are the Imam is leading the schizoid and he reads the Karanja you

00:10:15--> 00:11:00

either know the early Sala Timmy Oh we'll do it faster our Illa Vickery na, yo la so beautiful. Oh you will believe when the call to please give it on the day of June 1. Allah Subhana doesn't say come to the pray Allah Subhana Allah say go quickly hasten to the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Hooda and the Salah. That when you understand this, when you understand the language, and the prophets of Allah wa alayhi wa sallam speaks, or Allah subhanho wa Taala is speaking to you and me, oh, you who believe, of course there's going to be a change, of course we are going to be, you know, motivated we are going to do we're not going to say, you know, as we normally say,

00:11:00--> 00:11:48

Alhamdulillah we leave that to the Allah, Allah. They are in our community to teach us to guide us to help us with the difficult decisions that need to be made in our communities. They are not well law here. I've been saying this as frankly as possible, though, I'm not in the community to teach the people I live in bah, bah, bah, but rather the law in the community to assist the Muslims with the really difficult issues, because they are basics. And then they are advanced issues that we require that are level four, in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and after this, you found that the Bedouins they had a very strong knowledge of the Quran and of the sunlight.

00:11:49--> 00:12:07

Because at that time, that was that was what was understood. There was what what what was expected from you and me. Today, we don't have the same standards. We don't have them. So how do we how do we get ourselves to that particular particular stage? Firstly,

00:12:09--> 00:12:32

if we are going to make our study of Islam worship, we must then understand what worship is what is Eva? What is this Eva the service Utah Allah subhanho wa Taala. If I was to ask you, what is servitude, what is a bother, you would say it is Vicar and you would say it is sign up and you would say it is Hajj and you would say it is Amara

00:12:33--> 00:13:02

and the person at the back would say it is xhaka. And everyone would have something in mind, which they would use to define what Ava is. But one scholar who lived in the eighth century, he beautifully says it. It is perhaps not the only definition of what a vida is, but it is a very good definition. He says that a bada is a comprehensive term for everything which Allah loves and is pleased with.

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

Ava the word Ava

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

is a comprehensive term it covers a lot, everything which Allah loves, and is pleased with.

00:13:14--> 00:13:45

Now, if we use that definition, and we applied it to the study of Islam, we begin to see a few beautiful things. Let me share with you a few ideas and hopefully through them Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant us a love for knowledge and increase that love in our hearts motivate us to want to study this beautiful deed. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says and directed by Abu hurayrah are the one in the Sahaba of Mr. Muslim.

00:13:46--> 00:14:14

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said man Seneca Padukone and Tammy Sufi here Elman sahana, Allahu Allahu ala jannetty. Whoever, and I want you to listen very carefully to this. Because I have an excuse that many people have is they say, I am too old. Or they say, I don't have time for you know, real in depth study, or they have a range of excuses. But listen to the Howdy.

00:14:15--> 00:14:59

Whoever it reverses travels a part intends to study, right? When Salah caparica whoever is on the path, you know, if you want to travel if you want to travel to South Africa, just to be on the plane. Are you traveling to South Africa? You haven't reached yet. You haven't reached South Africa but are you a traveler? Everyone agrees that you are a traveler. As soon as you get onto the plane in Colombo, you are now a traveler. So Allah subhanho wa Taala His messenger is saying that who ever gets onto the path of seeking knowledge? You help me Sufi, he he searching for knowledge, looking for it, trying to find it. Did he find it

00:15:00--> 00:15:45

No, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not speaking about the goal, the end result. He's not speaking of that. He is speaking about the starting the mere infant to seek knowledge. Yes, Tommy Sufi Hyndman that person is making the effort. He is coming to gatherings like this. He's trying to study online. He's attending classes by the island of Sri Lanka of the city. The you know, maybe the Imam of the masjid has a lesson of the vigil. That person is coming all the way 20 minutes 30 minutes away 20 kilometres and he drives or he rides or he walks to come to the restaurant, and I'll share many stories with you which Allahu taala at the end of the lecture, but the person who is

00:15:45--> 00:16:37

making the effort, the Prophet did not say that he is becoming a scholar. The Prophet did not say that he is becoming a student of knowledge that he is he has proper understanding that the Prophet did not say that he is memorizing money, man sadaqa pericardial Tommy Sufi Hellman is looking for the knowledge is only seeking it, sir Hello, hello for UConn in urgenda. a va will facilitate for that person, his path to gender. But what is this person? Is he an alien? No is on an island. Is he a student of knowledge? No, he is not a student of knowledge in the sense that he is not a full time student of knowledge that he has dedicated seven or eight or 20 years of his life to memorizing and

00:16:37--> 00:17:26

memorizing Bukhari and Muslim. This is you and me making the effort to learn every single day. Every single day, we sit in the lessons of the Oliver, we try to read as much as possible. We watch lectures online, we enroll ourselves in online courses, we try to learn as much as possible, we come to the Imam of the masjid and we say I do not know how to recite the Quran. Can I come to you after fudger every morning, and you teach me how to read the Bible say inshallah. I will try three times a week, I'll sit with you. So you come and you try to learn. Well, why you when I first started memorizing the Quran, I was 18 years old. And the school that I went to, in Cape Town, there were

00:17:26--> 00:18:07

students of all ages. And I, you know, by myself and another colleague, you know, we were the eldest in the class, but there was this young boy eight years old in the class when I came the I could not recite their aim properly. So when I was when I got to the the surah one idea, Zoo, Baba, I was saying, well, deity Baba, so the shift says, No, it's not like, and I kept on saying that one, though. It's one idea. So I said, No, I can't say it. You said, Okay. What I want you to do is I want you to go and sit with raffia. And He will teach you this eight year old boy, and He will teach you how to pronounce the eye.

00:18:09--> 00:18:57

He will teach you how to pronounce the eye. So I went to him now, I'm 18 years old. He's eight years old. Right? It will lie it was it was very, it was very tough for my ego, for me to go and actually go in with this, this young, small boy to teach me how to recycle. And I decided this particular later in the Arabic language, but I went and I sat with him. So I'm saying well, is like no 111 right at a wait out like that for three or four days until finally, Allah subhanho wa Taala granted me that the week to finally pronounce it. One, the de Baba, the point I want to make is that sometimes shaytaan whispers to you and tells you you're too old.

00:18:58--> 00:19:19

Or you don't have a good memory. Or, you know, you're a sinner, why waste your time studying Islam? You know, what will the people say? You don't even pray five times a day. Why do you want to learn? And someone else will, you know, give you excuses? I remember when my grandmother when I told her I want to memorize the Quran. She looked at me and she said,

00:19:21--> 00:19:24

My grandson, there's no money in that.

00:19:25--> 00:19:55

She was right. She was right. She was very right, actually. But that's not the point. The point is that shavon will come to you in different forms, and people will try to discourage you. But when you know that he was of study, you don't allow any of that to deter you from your goal. Because the person who studies the person who studies Allah is making easy for him. He's fought to gender. Think about that for a moment.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

You study you come into the amount of diversity

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

Learn how to recite the book of a law. You come into lessons like this, you come into the alcocer course over the weekend, you're going to study overseas, you going online and studying online. All of this is Allah subhanho wa Taala facilitating for you, your path to gender, and who would not want a path to gender facilitated?

00:20:24--> 00:20:27

You know, if I told any of these young boys here,

00:20:28--> 00:20:33

I knew a quick and easy way for you to pass all of your exams.

00:20:34--> 00:21:19

I know a quick see smiling. I know a quick and easy way you just do this, and you will pass all of your exams, would they not be interested? They would be interested all of them will come to me afterwards. Sure. What's the secret? How do I pass all my exams? We know as Muslims and we believe that we will be tested in our grades. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will send two angels to us. And they will ask us three questions. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala to grant us the tofik to live the kind of lives that will enable us to answer those three questions correctly. And quickly and easily. That's the first test. After this, we will be questioned by a loss of a hardware dialer, because we

00:21:19--> 00:21:25

be held accountable for everything that we said and everything that we did. That's another examination.

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

And then we will have to pass over the ciroc over Johanna.

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

Some of us will go like lightning May Allah make us of those people. Some of us will go like do when others will crawl over. And yet others will stumble and fall May Allah protect us.

00:21:43--> 00:22:28

So these are all these examinations, all these files that are ahead of us. But when you study this deal, and when you put effort into studying it, Allah will facilitate for you your path to gender, because what knowledge comes understanding and with understanding comes practice. And with practice comes closest to Allah subhanho wa Taala a love for Allah and his obedience and love to want to please Allah subhanho wa Taala because he's the boy you know, the boy I know of those things which please Allah subhanho wa Taala shall not rush to do them. And the more I know of things which Allah is displeased with, which he hates, in which he dislikes in which he has prohibited, will I not then

00:22:28--> 00:22:40

stay away from those things. If I know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did things in a certain way. And Allah tells me that la casa koggala, Goofy rasulillah he was certain

00:22:41--> 00:22:59

that you have in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful example, shall I, the more I know of him, the more apparent that role model becomes, the more apparent that example becomes, I am now able to follow him that let me ask you a simple question.

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

When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to those companions that he was bidding farewell to author, they had spent many days with him in Medina, and they had studied the Quran with him they had memorized a lot of the Quran, and they let them see, you know, the other and the karma and Sala and many other things. But Prophet says to them, when he told him to leave,

00:23:25--> 00:24:12

he saw that they were missing their families. And he said to them, saw a new cover or a tune, he will suddenly pray as you have seen me pray. Now, how can we do that? You and me, if we have not studied the Salah of Mohammed Salah la vida Heusen, you understand if images are irrefutable law he says well as Lupita Ji the Hakuna xivo by love you Joe we didn't do that will ever get reciting the Quran with Tajweed is compulsory. And whoever does not recite it with the Jui is sinful because it is in this manner in which it is being taught by the relevance of the Gita and Tara and

00:24:13--> 00:24:55

the way that it has been revealed to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam that is very important. How then would we be able to decide what a beautiful thing about this Deen is that the recitation that we have today that though Allah have to recite, they have taken from the teachers who took it from the teachers at that particular chain goes all the way back to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam something to that, that is that what a legacy is that what heritage that you would like to take from? Imagine you could say, I recite the Quran, as the Prophet recited it.

00:24:56--> 00:24:56


00:24:58--> 00:24:59

what a What an honor

00:25:00--> 00:25:49

That your chef says to you adjust to laka I have given you ijazah to the site and teach the sport as you have read it to be as my teacher gave it to me and he should be for him all the way to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So, if our study is going to be worshipped, the first thing that we need to understand is Allah subhanho wa Taala loves it. The second thing we need to understand is that this religion, this Deen can only be practice can only be properly understood, and therefore can only be properly taught to others. If the Muslims themselves or are knowledgeable of this religion, if they take the study of this Deen seriously, if it is something that they

00:25:49--> 00:25:51

dedicate themselves to.

00:25:52--> 00:26:06

If you look at the Sahaba, look at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, compare yourself to the prophet and compare yourself to his companions, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam zlotys to have a long life

00:26:08--> 00:26:12

and hamdulillah hero, believe me,

00:26:14--> 00:26:16


00:26:17--> 00:26:23

to the and he continues his thoughts.

00:26:24--> 00:27:04

And he reads this though I have mercy except that he asked for a loss of data for his mercy, these no idea of punishment except that he seeks refuge from a law from that particular punishment. He reads surah baqarah and Surah Nisa and so early in Iran, and so rotten by either it was Raka Why does he read like that? I saw the law and how she sees that his feet are swollen. She's his feet are swollen, and he's reading and it sounds like a kettle that is boiling. She was no jasola Why do you do this to yourself and Alliance we've given you all your sins.

00:27:05--> 00:27:17

Listen to the words of Allah aku abdon Sha Koran shall not be a grateful slave. A grateful person is only that person that knows what to be grateful for.

00:27:19--> 00:27:25

And the more you study your deen, the more you realize how much you have to be grateful for.

00:27:26--> 00:27:30

Think about this. Well, are you look, I lived in India for one year.

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

And I don't want to talk about all the details. But one of the things that affected me the most, one of the things that I am so grateful for, is it Allah subhanho wa Taala has guided me to Islam.

00:27:46--> 00:27:59

Every day I would walk and I would see the people coming here asking other than Allah subhanho wa Taala, making sujood and gurukula to other than Allah giving offerings to other than Allah slaughtering for other than Allah.

00:28:00--> 00:28:50

And every day I would see this, and knowing tohave, knowing its virtue, knowing its importance, I realized how lucky I am or rather how grateful I need to be. There is a there are greater than this. And the more you study the Quran in the sooner the more this particular Dharma and blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala becomes very apparent to you. So knowledge, my dear brothers and sisters, the next issue is that not only will your path to gender be facilitated, not only will you achieve through knowledge, all of these things are like gratitude, and solder, because the more you know, what awaits you in the year after, the more motivated you will be to try to achieve that. But think about

00:28:50--> 00:29:13

this. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, but there are illa houda there whoever calls to guidance, whatever calls to guidance, then for you is it is a reward, similar to the reward of those who follow him. Yeah. Think about it. Imagine for a moment.

00:29:15--> 00:29:31

Imagine let me give you a story from the time of the Sahaba or 30 of your loved one. He's in a gathering and a man says to him that how did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam perform his Whoo. How did he do his widow.

00:29:32--> 00:29:34

Now, I could tell you

00:29:36--> 00:29:42

but this isn't the way the best way to teach is to show if you have any programmers here.

00:29:44--> 00:29:49

Any people in it if you wanted to teach me something Are you in it?

00:29:51--> 00:29:58

If you are going to show me how to do something on a computer, what is better for you to show me of you to tell me

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

to show

00:30:00--> 00:30:06

All right. So as vulgar language says, Bring me some water. So water is brought.

00:30:08--> 00:30:49

A bucket is placed in front of him. And he begins to do his Moodle as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did his model, which means that every one of us who benefits from this earth man even I forgot the Allahu Akbar, and the person who rates this heavy and the person who raised it from the VA, and the person who raised from that, from that at Berta VI, until the Allah who teach you how to perform the widow of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, every time you do Voodoo like that, they will receive a reward equal to yours without your reward being decreased in any way.

00:30:51--> 00:31:19

Why will you not learn to servant of Allah? Why will you not study this deed with this is the reward that you can gain for yourself, that boy who taught me how to resize an eye, every time I read the Quran, and I pronounced that improperly for him is saying good deeds. Every time I read, when I leave the Sala Alhamdulillah Europe, me 10 good deeds for me and 10 good deeds for a fear.

00:31:20--> 00:31:43

That is the word that waits for you. For all of us, if we study this deed, and we teach it to others, why would you not this is worship. This is why a man came to him a baliga Himalaya and said to him that Yeah, we do not see you reciting much of the Quran. We don't really see you doing lots of SATA CT, we don't see you out on the battlefield.

00:31:45--> 00:31:49

So, even polygraphy ma said that very beautifully. He said

00:31:50--> 00:32:22

that Allah subhanho wa Taala has opened different doors for different people. For you always open up the door for Salah, knuffel sauna, and for you always open up the door of fasting and for you always open up the door of jihad and for you always open up the door of performing hajj every year. But for me, Allah has opened up for me the dough of teaching the Sunnah of His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but even Mardi Gras molars wise because he knew Look at his book is still being taught today.

00:32:24--> 00:32:50

The Jihad oh that man has ended when he dies. The Saga cause of that man ended when he died. The first thing of that man ended when he died. But the knowledge of Mr. Malik is still being taught today around the world. What do you think he has what he has written? Whatever he has taught, it is still being taught today. And for him his reward every time someone studies he learns it and puts it into practice.

00:32:51--> 00:32:55

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it

00:32:56--> 00:33:33

is a matter of if the son of Adam dies meaning you and I when we die in cocoa, I'm Alou. 11 Sarah that is good these seeds come to an end except for for how many four three, we are three things that will continue to benefit your good deeds. So what are they saw the cotton jariya till continuous charity the man who bought this machine or the male who bought this machine Oh women every time we pray here, they will get a reward even though they might have died many years ago.

00:33:34--> 00:34:17

So the cotton jharia you both a well in a very in some way a borehole and the people have good clean water they every time they drink from it you will get the reward if you planted fruit trees will lie Listen to this. This is this is beauty. This is the beauty of the deen you planted one or two fruit trees in a garden somewhere in a park. It provides shade for the people it provides fruits for the people and for the animals even the insects that eat from it every time something benefits from what you planted for you is a charity. So the cottage area till then we're ill mean you into ob and knowledge which the people benefit from the huddle.

00:34:19--> 00:34:54

It was a thematic. They said to you Why are you writing another Botha? whereas others have also written mulato out like yours? Why do you write a book many people have written books like you've ever written. So he says we beautifully. Baka da de la Heba. Whatever is for the sake of Allah will remain. That is so true. Which means this is just a side note. That whatever we teach, whatever we practice must be done for the sake of a loss of a hand or data. We don't want to be like that man who comes to the masjid.

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

Well, he's got a group of people sitting there

00:35:01--> 00:35:17

And he's no beautifying and he goes into the core is Roku his back is straight, Masha Allah is looking at the place of sujood. He comes up on walkabout beautiful and the people start speaking they say look at that brother.

00:35:18--> 00:36:06

Look at his sweater. Look at how beautifully he prays. It says if we are seeing one of those have his brain. So this man, his intentions change, and he turns away from his original sincere intention. And in his cider. He turns to the people and he says, I'm also forcing today. There has not become this person. My dear brothers and sisters. There have become the person who studies so that people might say odd IE Masha Allah share, you know, molana, Emma harfield. All these titles that are given to people, you know, when people call me chef, I like to make this joke about exactly, it's very serious. But the other cliche was to be saved. In the machines woman your WWE

00:36:06--> 00:36:39

button. She was a claim that I am a chef. I have no chef, a chef is that man who walks with a walking stick in the Arabic language I share is a elderly is an elderly man. So although I have a few gray hairs, I have no elderly man Alhamdulillah. Right. So titles mean nothing, they mean absolutely nothing. In Firstly, there is no sincerity. There is no, there's no active practice of what you know, and teaching it to others.

00:36:40--> 00:36:43

Well, ah, he, when I went to study in Medina,

00:36:44--> 00:36:45

we were

00:36:46--> 00:37:04

17 people, 17 people from South Africa that were accepted 1717 people, that's a lot of people that I see even p young men being chosen to go and study at Islamic University of Medina. Do you know how many of them graduated?

00:37:06--> 00:37:13

For four out of how many 17 do you know how many of them are active in the hour today

00:37:15--> 00:37:19

who have dedicated themselves completely only to teaching deed.

00:37:23--> 00:38:09

Although I must be fair, our other brother he's busy, but you know, he's, he spends most of his time with something else. Right. So to other 70, what happened, or three out of 70? What happened to the others. This is when you realize how you have to you have to know that this is going to take it's going to take time, but it's also going to take some acidity is going to take a real commitment from you. And will allow you many people she thought whispers to them and tells them that, you know, you won't be able to memorize the whole course. You want to study Arabic, you know, don't bother, it will take you 20 years to master it. That's the reality. With you know, I want you to listen very

00:38:09--> 00:38:23

carefully to this. With you know that studying is worship. We you know that studying is what Allah loves. It doesn't matter how long it takes, because you want to stay on the path for as long as possible.

00:38:24--> 00:38:26

That's his method. That's the method

00:38:27--> 00:38:29

I've been studying since 1999.

00:38:30--> 00:39:12

And the more I study online, to be honest, the more I want to study, the more I want to read, the more lectures I want to listen to. And the more I want to teach, have clauses like these and you know, clauses back home, in Cape Town in South Africa, and going overseas. Alhamdulillah Allah has blessed me I get to travel, you know, although I don't know if I'm worthy of that, but I get to travel anyway. But it needs to be this commitment, that when you know that this is worship, that means sitting and idea and speaking to you about Allah and His messenger and about this deed that I will be rewarded in Sha Allahu taala that must motivate me to do what to do more. As long as you are

00:39:12--> 00:39:35

on the path, Allah will facilitate for you your path to gender. So my dear brothers and sisters, it was really it was a lot that I wanted to discuss with you tonight. But inshallah hudaydah perhaps another time, when you come to South Africa or I come to Sri Lanka again, we can take this further, but there are few things I want to share with you a few very good books

00:39:37--> 00:40:00

that are available about that speaks about knowledge. And also very, very good lectures that speak about the virtues of of knowledge. Firstly, I just saw in the budget when I came from Missouri, that these are the soil you're in on the bookshelf over there. Many of you perhaps do not live in this area. You don't come to this machine every day, but maybe you have the address.

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

Solid in your local budget, or you have at home, I want you to go to the Chapter The Book of knowledge, the book of knowledge in Riyadh the solid in and I want you to read those ahaadeeth, which I did not share with you tonight. Those are ideas, which I have not shared with you tonight, and hamdulillah the explanations online, you know, of this particular chapter that you can avail yourselves of. There's also a very good book that I want you all to read. It's a very, it's a booklet. It's called a ticket of seeking knowledge by chef Barker, abusing the etiquette of seeking knowledge. It's a very small book, but very beneficial inshallah, spiritually speaking about the

00:40:43--> 00:41:26

virtues, and the greatness of seeking knowledge, but also how to seek knowledge, which is very, very important. The first thing that you need to do, the first two things that I want you to concentrate on, and I want to leave you with tonight is to learn Arabic, and to learn the book of a loss of a Haida hautala and do them together, strive as much as you can to learn the language of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam the language of the Quran and learn the Quran itself, know its meanings, understand what Allah subhanho wa Taala is guiding you to, so that we might be affected, like the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were also affected. We ask Allah subhana wa Taala

00:41:26--> 00:42:00

to give us an understanding about the way Allah subhanho wa Taala caused the love of seeking knowledge to enter our hearts when Allah subhanho wa Taala cause it to grow, you know, every single day, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us beneficial knowledge and righteous action. And may Allah as he has gathered us earlier today, gather us again in the company of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam agenda to fifth dose. May Allah make us of those who will drink from his pond on the Delta Yama dissolvable lokalen roboticle love of Eagle was set out what alikum warahmatu Allahi wa barakato

00:42:01--> 00:42:07

I don't know if we going to have questions and answers, but maybe just a few. One or two.

00:42:08--> 00:42:13

Any other topic of course, on the topic, you know,

00:42:15--> 00:42:24

I'm no goofy. And also the local argument for the fact of a tower challah. Like she has a very another wife. Now don't ask me I don't know.

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


00:42:30--> 00:42:31

Any questions? No questions.

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

Mashallah, really?

00:42:35--> 00:42:41

Nothing. Okay. They will end with that in sha Allah. Allah faecal, Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
