WA Salatu was Salam ala Abdullah he was solely Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi H mine.
How're you guys doing today?
Very good Alhamdulillah today shout Allahu taala. We have a new topic, but it's just a one off topic. That means that what we're going to talk about today, we're just going to talk about it for today. And we're going to finish the topic today. What we're going to talk about today in sha Allah is why is it important to learn about your religion?
And there's a reason why I want to talk about this today. And I'll tell you about that reason, in sha Allah at the end of the class.
So I want to ask you start off by asking you guys what you know about this topic?
Why is it important to know and learn the religion of Islam? I don't mean just to know that you're Muslim. I mean, you know, you're Muslim, right? You didn't think you were coming to church today? Everybody knew they came to the masjid. Right. Okay, good. Hi. So you knew a Muslim? That's fine. But I mean, why is it important to actually really know your religion properly? You're the first one to put your hand up heavy.
In your grave, Angel ask questions about what's your face?
Very good walleye, your answer is
amazing. Mashallah, what what was the answer? When you die, and you go into your grave, there are going to come to you two angels, and those angels are going to be extremely scary.
extremely scary, and their names are Moon car. And Nikhil, very scared. And they're going to force you to sit up and they're going to say, Murghab book, Who is your Lord? Wanna Dino? What is your religion? woman had Orajel led boy is African. Who was this man that was sent to you? So you better have an answer for the question that you're going to be asked. That's good. I like that. You'll have you heard that answer?
Very good. I like that. So somebody might ask you a question, not just in the grid. I mean, like in your life, someone who's not a Muslim, might come and ask you a question about
the about Islam or about why your Muslim does a very good answer. Yes.
Very good. I like to answer a lot while you guys given good answers today. That if you don't learn your religion, you won't know if you are doing the right thing or the wrong thing. How will you know if you're doing the right thing or the wrong thing, if you don't know your religion properly? How many people are there? They are Muslim. They are living their lives as Muslims, but they don't know what they're doing is wrong because they didn't bother to learn their religion. They didn't make an effort to learn their religion. I like that. And from this is the statement of Allah azza wa jal about Serena Amala.
The people who lose the most in their deeds. Do you know who loses the most? And Ladino Baldassarre Johann Phil hieratic. Dunya homea seven, and now you're seen on Asana, the people who they work so hard, they do so much effort, but all of their effort is wasted.
They thought they were doing something good. But they didn't have knowledge. So they didn't know the difference between what was good and what was bad. So they did what was bad. They thought it was good. They came on the day of judgment, and they thought, I'm just gonna get a big policy agenda. Okay, where's my palace? There's no palace for you. Because you didn't do the right thing. But you just thought you were doing it. You thought you were doing something good.
You thought you were doing something good. I'll give you one here an example of that, which is a crazy example. You want to hear an example of that, which is a you cannot understand this. It's really strange. You know, I'll even be toilet.
You know, Ali, the son in law of the Prophet size element, his cousin Hollywood avatar.
I'll even be thought of the fourth of the Khalifa Rashidi in the fourth of the Rightly Guided caliphs that came after the Prophet size.
There was a man
He murdered Ali Bin Abu Talib. He killed it. Yeah, he killed it. That's not the strange thing. I'm going to tell you what was strange. What was strange is he thought Allah was going to give him Jenna for it.
He killed Ali bin Abi Talib. When Ali came out from the Federal prayer,
and he prayed fetch that he killed him at fetcher time. And he thought what he did was so good that Allah was going to give him a place above all of the other people on the Day of Judgment
even some of the people they praise them and they said I don't think anyone will be in a higher place than this man.
You killed the fourth of the rightly guided Khalifa. You kill the cousin of the Prophet slice them you killed his son in law. You killed someone who was promised Jenner and you think you are going to go to the highest place in China? Ali Ravi Allahu Allah is going to go to Jenna and where are you going to go? There is only only one other location if you're not in Genesis the other one.
So my point is that without knowledge you might think that what you're doing is good, but what you're doing is not good. Yes moving.
You won't learn from your mistakes because you won't even realize you made mistakes. I want to apologize to the girls today that I don't have a connection for the girls today.
So that's my apology to the girls today that I can't hear your answers, but inshallah you can try and you know, give the answers in your head and and see the answers to each other and see if you get the answer right.
saw that you do the right thing. I like that. So you do the right thing. So you do the right thing? Yes.
To appreciate what the prophets and messengers went through, okay, I've got something else on top of that. You can't worship Allah, unless you know him.
You can't worship Allah without knowledge. And that's why Allah says Allah who led the holocaust by semi working women out of the salon. Yet there is an Rubina who Narita ilevel and Allah Allah Cooley Shea in Cardiff, when Allah called her Toby Cooley, Shea in enema,
Allah subhanaw taala created the heavens, seven of them. And he created the earth like that. And all of the commands and the decrees that Allah made, all of it happened. So you know, Allah, that is able to do all things and that Allah has surrounded everything with his knowledge. What does that tell us? The whole of the heavens and the earth, everything you can see, go outside wherever you can see it was created. So you know Allah.
It was created so you can know Allah, You were created to know Allah and worship him. You can't worship Him. Unless you know him. If you don't know him, how will you worship what you don't know? Go on.
If you're not if you don't understand
you don't actually know anything about it.
You can't really proudly say you're a Muslim and not know what a Muslim is. But that's the state of many people. You're right many people they are in that situation where they are proud to be a Muslim. But to be honest, if you said to them something from Islam they find it strange the prophets I seldom said better Islam Oh hurry when was a rule to hurry Ben Canada tool ballyhoura that he said Islam started as something strange how did Islam start strange? What was strange about Islam in the beginning Islam started strange and it will go back to being strange. How did Allah How did Islam start as being strange
okay nobody knew anything about Islam That's That's true by something a bit a little bit more than that. Not just that people didn't know about Islam. Yes, Muhammad.
i People didn't practice it. Yeah, people didn't practice it. Yes, Yusuf.
Yeah, that that you're nearly there but still not quite like so what you're saying is that many things came in Islam that was strange to the people like the people used to drink alcohol and Islam.
came and told them not to. But what was the strangest thing for them in Islam? It wasn't not drinking alcohol it wasn't praying five times a day. What was the thing that they found it so strange? They found it
in her della Shea when they found it so so strange yes after
they found it the more strange thing ever yes yes you
What about the religion? What was the thing that they found a more strange Yes
No it wasn't the Quran in Arabic that they found strange. They found something so strange. They said in their heart LSA on our job. This is the strangest thing we ever heard. Yes. Okay, what about Allah?
Call who Allah Who?
Call who Allah Who?
Call who Allahu Ahad.
They found the strangest thing that Allah is.
They said, agile li Hatha Isla Hanwha Heda in Mahadasha your job has he took turned all of the gods into one God. The strangest thing they found in Islam. They couldn't understand one God because those people what did they used to worship before Islam? Or a lot of people know the answer this question Who have I not heard from as heavy? What false gods they used to worship what type of false gods were they?
Were we're Whoo, yes. Idols. They used to worship statues and idols and the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he came and he said to the people call who Allahu Ahad say Allah is One.
And he said, y'all call me kulula ilaha illa Allah Who to flee who my people see La Ilaha illa Allah see there is only one God that should be worshipped Allah. And the people said, This is very strange.
He's getting rid of all of our idols. He doesn't believe in idols in the heart and ashamed on our job. This is very strange. Why has he made that there is no more idols no more Gods just one God.
That was so strange to them.
Islam started strange.
And Islam will go back to being strange. How will Islam go back to being strange? And I believe that is it's happened in this time, but it's getting worse. But even in this time, Islam has become something strange. It's become something very strange. Yes.
But we're talking about now today. Why do people find Islam strange today? I mean, like, if you practice Islam and you go outside, why do people find I'm not talking about non Muslims? Even Muslims find Islam strange?
Who's going to give me an answer?
We're gonna answer from going
I like that use of got exactly the right answer. 100% you got the right answer. If you follow the Quran and the Sunnah, people see you something strange. Maybe they even call you names.
What is this? Your extreme fire you pray five times a day was who does that?
I'll tell you a story. A true story. And I the brother will not mile not mentioned the brother's name but he told me
his son goes to school. In the school. He told the teacher my son needs to pray.
The teacher said you know how many 100 Muslims we have in the school. And nobody ever asked for their children to pray.
Islam came back to being strange. Actually, every Muslim parent in that school should have asked for their children to pray. By Subhanallah according to that teacher, nor by the asked for the children to pray except one person in the whole school of Muslims. Only one single parents said my child needs to pray.
Islam became strange.
Islam became strange. Look, you get older you grow your beard people look at you like what are you doing?
This is weird. You look strange. You see how do you think the prophets I send them looked? The prophets I saw them was clean.
Shiva no the prophets Isaiah had big beard.
Weird in other shade on our job. It became strange Islam became something strange for people.
When you practice Islam in front of people, they even look at you like,
Oh, this is strange. We don't know this.
I got a lot of Muslim friends, none of them do what you do. That kind of thing, right? Islam became strange, and it's getting stranger. Do you know how strange Islam will become? It will become so strange that people will not understand La ilaha illAllah. They will say my dad and my granddad used to say it. And I say, but I don't know what it means.
And if I tell you that there are countries in the world where this already happened, I have personally been to countries where people are Muslim.
And they don't know any single thing about the religion. Nothing at all. Except Salam Aleykum Selam Aleykum Ali Salaam is it further What are you doing? slike I'm Muslim, what's a Muslim? I don't know. But my dad was Muslim and my granddad was Muslim. So that's why I am
Islam became something strange.
Like it was strange before. For toolbar little Harada paradise is for who? Who is paradise for?
Not in the hidey fear right, but not in the Hadith. In the Hadith, Islam started as something strange, and it will go back to being something strange. Paradise is for the
for the strangers, the people who are strange, Jenna is for the people who are strange not strange as in like weird as in strange that they are practicing Islam. But people find strange because they are practicing Islam. And those will be the people of gender. Because when the Prophet practiced Islam slicer lambda people thought he was strange. And when the Sahaba practiced Islam the people thought that they were strange. And now if you practice Islam, many people even Muslims will think that you are strange for toolbar little guava Paradisus for the people who are strange. Okay, let's talk a little bit about our topic.
Allah azza wa jal
told us that he will raise up the level of the people of knowledge.
Allah subhanaw taala said yeah, you are letting me know either ki Lala counterfeiter who filled my jealousy for Sir hula hula why either Korean shoe fan shoes we are for Ella hula Deena and hoomin Kumar Latina o l Medora. Jet. Wala Hoovy my attire man, when a hobby
Allah will raise up
those who believe and those people who have knowledge many levels.
So Allah is going to give much higher level in paradise to the people who have knowledge versus the people who don't have knowledge. So the people who have knowledge Allah is going to give them a much higher place in paradise. Do we want a higher place in paradise? Or we just want to be the last one bottom of the list? Last one in the door, nor we want to have the high place in paradise we want to have a dose of Alumina Jenna, may Allah azza wa jal give you an eye Alpha dose of elemental Jen and may Allah azza wa jal make you and I from those people enter Jenna be re serbin will adapt without any punishment and without any account. That's what we want. We don't want to be the last person in
the door who just got in before the door closed. We want to be in the high places of paradise. For this you have to have knowledge you have a very low lead in Amman or when Medina or Tula Elma Dada Madaba jazz Allah is gonna raise your level of because you have knowledge
by want to ask a question and you guys know the answer to this already.
But I'm going to ask you as a testing you okay
easy enough just to have knowledge that Allah will give you a high place in paradise just because you have knowledge or do you need something to go with that knowledge? Unless I think I saw you the first one to put your hand
you have to be able to Okay, let's just say you are you're Muslim and you have knowledge is that enough? Know what
you need to act upon it
You need to practice it. And men who are corny to an ANA la saggi don't work hard Emma. Ja Rule hirato Mehta be cool hell yes that will ADINA, Allah Muna, well Adina Allah, Allah Moon, the only knowledge Allah accepts is the knowledge you put into practice.
The only knowledge that Allah accepts is the knowledge you put into practice. Otherwise, maybe somebody comes to the class, they learn about Islam. They become knowledgeable. But when you see them, they don't do the things that they know.
They don't do what they know.
And so that knowledge, it's what for them a punishment for them, not a blessing for them, right?
Because Allah punishes them because they had knowledge, but they didn't do what they were,
what they knew. Okay.
I want to tell you about the easiest way to get gender.
I'm going to tell you, Tony, then I'm going to ask you later, I'm going to tell you then I'm going to ask you the easiest way to get general.
There was a man called cafiero Blow case.
And he was sitting in the masjid in Damascus. Do you know why Damascus is the mosque
The capital of Syria
in a sham
and he was in
the mosque in
the capital of Syria.
And he was sitting in the masjid.
And he was sitting with a companion whose name was Abu Delta
in University of Michigan
and a man came to him and he said, Yeah, I've heard of that. He said, Oh, I would love that.
G to come in Medina to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the Hadith in Bella honey and NACA to head this will be who Anika to hide the zoo, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He said, I've come all the way from Medina. I came from where? Medina from Medina to Damascus is not a short trip, and he didn't fly. How do we know he didn't fly? Because he lived in the time of our data. There was no aeroplanes. Okay. He traveled by camo or he walked from Medina in Saudi Arabia, which now in Saudi Arabia, all the way to Damascus in Syria. He said, I only came because I want to hear one Hadith from you.
I heard you know, a hadith. And I want to ask you about it.
He said magic to the hija. He said I didn't come for any other reason. There is no reason I came to you. I just want to hear a Hadith from you. That's it.
I would love that you asked him he said did you come for some business and you just came to see me on the site and you came for business? And then you came to see me? He said no.
He said you came for something else and then you came to see me said no.
You only came just for a hadith only for a hadith I came all the way from Medina to Damascus.
And I just came for one Hadith that I heard that you know, the Messenger of Allah sai Salim said
aboda He said man Salah cochlea Kenya global fee elmen
Celica Allah who be Italia come into local agenda.
He said whoever sets out on a path for knowledge. Allah will take him on a path to agenda. In another narration set. Hello Allahu Allahu Vittorio Coahuila, Jana Okemah. Khan, he's gonna take his path to gender Easy, easy. Gender will be easy for him. What does he have to do? He has to go out on a path for knowledge has to go out for knowledge. Didn't you guys come out of your house today to you to learn about Islam? You did? Right? You came out of your house today to learn about Islam. Those people who came out of their house to learn about Islam.
Those people who came out of their house to learn about Islam, Allah makes their path to Jannah. Easy,
easy for them to go to Jana. But that's not the only thing. That's not the only thing.
He said we're in Elmira. eeka letaba orogeny had to rebound literally when he said the angels when they see somebody who is learning about Islam, they lower their wings out of happiness.
Out of pleasure, they're so happy that the person is learning about Islam. They put their wings down.
Because they are so happy about what that person is doing.
You don't know Maybe you came out of your house today and every time you pass by the angel the angel put down their wings because they are so happy that you went to learn about your religion.
You don't know.
Then he said, That's not the only thing. We're in the Anima layer stuff the ruler human fi semma worth, you haven't fill out the will eternal fijo filled map. He said the scholar, everything in the heavens and the earth, ask Allah to forgive them, even the fish in the sea. How many fish are in the sea?
Billions and billions and billions of fish in the sea. All those fish all the time they are swimming they're saying Oh ALLAH forgive the scholar or ALLAH forgive the scholar or ALLAH forgive the scholar. They're asking Allah to forgive the scholar, everything in the heavens and the earth, even the fish in the sea.
Were in the formula idemia and IBD can febrile Comrie, Laylatul Bedri, Isla ser el kawaki. And the the status of the scholar over the worshiper is like the difference of the moon, against the stars
when it's full. So I want to explain this to you a little bit. Who did the prophets I seven compare he compared two people. One of them is scholar. The other one is
a worshiper. Now I want you to think about something's very important here. The Prophet size M is comparing the worshiper, the one who spends all day praying and fasting. And he spends the night praying and giving charity, not the person who's a bad Muslim. He's not comparing the scholar and the bad Muslim. He's comparing the scholar and the one who spends his life worshiping Allah. Which one is better? The scholar or the one who spends all the time praying and fasting and giving charity which one is better? Maybe
In fact, the scholar is so much better. The scholar is like the full moon. And the person who's praying all day and night is like the tiny speck in the sky.
Why is that though?
What makes the scholar good?
They have knowledge. But that on its own doesn't make it doesn't really make it what's good. What do you think still occur?
They act upon it. And what else do they do? What makes them like the moon? Why are they like the moon? Muhammad.
They teach other people, that worshiper doesn't teach anybody anything. He comes to the masjid and he prays Alhamdulillah he goes out he gets his money he gives sadaqa Al Hamdulillah the day time comes he fast Alhamdulillah but he doesn't benefit anybody else. He benefits who himself he does a great thing for himself and inshallah you will get a very high place in Jenna for himself. But he doesn't do anything for anybody else. The scholar Subhanallah, maybe 100,000 people that will pray and fast because of that person,
because of Allah and then that person.
Do you understand that the person who is the worshiper, whatever they do, even if they pray all day or night, but they still the only person who is praying is just one person. But the scholar if they teach the people how to pray, what's going to happen? Now, maybe 100,000 People will pray all day and all night.
So which one is better? The scholar is better than the worship. Now if that's the difference between the scholar and the worshiper, what is the difference in the scholar and the person who doesn't even practice this lab?
You cannot even compare it. You can't even imagine how different those two people are. And that's not the end of it. The prophets I send him said we're in the URL AMA, or was that will MBI we're in the Gambia LMU we're in a foodie now on what I do Hannah, while I can Walrath hula.
Or he said what Ross will
from an AHA who has to be held leading ledger?
He said the scholars inherit from the prophets. Do you know what inheriting means when someone dies you pass on to the next person here when somebody dies and they pass their things to the next person.
I sell them when he died, who did he pass on? Responsibility to?
Nobody can be a prophet right after him. You can't be a prophet but there were some people together they took the responsibility of what the Prophet used to do sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they do the same thing what the Prophet used to do SallAllahu wasallam who are those people?
His companions, yes, but out of them which one is the one who is really taking that responsibility on themselves? Go on.
aboubaker good who are what was Abu Bakr? Why did what did he have as knowledge? The people of knowledge are the ones who took it on.
The prophets i Some said the scholars inherit the prophets. He said the prophets never left golden silver.
Did the Prophet Muhammad so I seldom leave a bag of golden silver to be shared out for his family.
No, he didn't leave any golden silver to be given and say this is for you. This is for you. This is for you.
He didn't give. He didn't leave anything. When he died, his daughter Fatima was still alive. Probably Allah Who and her.
Did she get golden silver from him?
She didn't get from him.
All the profit left behind was knowledge.
So whoever takes it has taken a big share of good. They've taken a big share of good they've got a big a very, very, very good thing they have taken.
You can't take gold from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. You can't take silver from him. These days there is nothing of his that is still around. There is no clothing. There is no hair. There is no
plates and cups. They are not there anymore. The only thing that Prophet left sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that you can take it today. Right now you can take it is knowledge. So when you take knowledge you're doing the job of the prophets. Allah Salatu was Salam
ala told the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam to ask for knowledge.
Does anyone know that to add to ask for more knowledge
Rob BZ Danny Aima
or union see I didn't see you so I'm sorry. I didn't see you over on the side. Rob busy Denny Elena My Lord give me more knowledge. Who said this to her who was told to say it
no wasn't Musa I was thinking it's in its insalata so you confuse me for a second I thought you're right your surah is right but you're the Prophet was told to say to ask for more knowledge
prophet Muhammad so I sell them what cool. Rob BZ Dyneema who had the most knowledge out of all of the people
No, I'm not talking about Allah to a people people human beings, which human being had the most knowledge
the Prophet Muhammad sly, some correct use of very good the Prophet Muhammad so isolate
the Prophet Muhammad sighs LM had the most knowledge and what was the what was he taught to ask for? To ask for more knowledge? He had the most knowledge and he was told to ask for more knowledge. That means you can never have enough knowledge always are looking for more and more knowledge. Okay, I'm gonna read you an iron and you're gonna tell me what the iron means?
Allah azza wa jal set
Wamena NASCI what della BOL, anonimo telefoon Allahu Gallic in sha Allah having a birdie healer arena. In Allah Aziz Anwar for
Allah azza wa jal said, among people and creatures
and the animals that you keep the farm animals that you keep. There are many different colors. The only ones who fear Allah
Other people have knowledge.
Allah is as easin Almighty and Allah is God for
who is going to explain this it to me read it to you in English one more time among people and critique all the people and the creatures and the farm animals, there are different colors. The only one who fears Allah
are the scholars that people have knowledge in Nehemiah Shala has been a baddie and aroma The only people who really fear Allah are the people have knowledge
so because the scholars have knowledge, and they know what Allah told them is going to happen, the day of judgment and everything. So they have more they have they are more scared of Allah than anyone else. And nobody else is really scared of Allah, except the people who have knowledge. Excellent. Very, very good.
There is another Hadith. I want you to explain for me. Explain to me, for me to me,
which is the hadith of Maria turabi Allah who I'm the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Men you read the law who be Hira, you fucker houfy Deen, whoever Allah wants good for, he gives him knowledge of the religion.
Whoever Allah wants good for he gives him knowledge of the religion
so they're going to get higher place in gender and they will feel Allah more. And there'll be more scared of Allah. And they will become from the people of knowledge because Allah wants good for them. So a sign that Allah wants good for someone
is that he gives them knowledge. Does Allah give knowledge to everybody? No.
So if Allah gives you knowledge, that's a sign that Allah wants good for you. When you read the law will be higher. You factor Hoovy deed but knowledge of what knowledge of medicine right? For Allah wants good for you. He gives you knowledge of medicine. Know, what does he give knowledge of
your religion? medicines, not a bad thing. Don't I'm not saying anything wrong with it. But don't think that the word knowledge means every knowledge. The only knowledge which we're talking about today is you will feel Dean gives them knowledge of his religion. That's the knowledge that benefits Tama. Okay.
I want to talk a little bit about now.
I want to talk something a little bit now with you for about maybe 10 minutes or 15 minutes. I want to talk to you about how a person should seek knowledge. Now that's a big topic and I'm not going to cover everything about it today. I just want to cover some things of it. How do you learn your religion?
Now I know you've been saying you come to your classes and I know you come to your kids class mashallah you guys do amazing and all the people who are watching at home, you do fantastic mashallah, you guys come you pay attention. You listen and you learn Mashallah. But I want to tell you a few things. I'm going to ask you a question. But just for now, put your hands down.
The first thing that you need to understand
if you're going to learn knowledge of your religion, is that knowledge needs commitment, it needs effort. You can't get knowledge by just giving a little bit of your time. You need to give more of your time and you need to work very, very hard to get it and I give you a reason why.
If If knowledge makes the path to gender easy, okay?
And knowledge makes you feel Allah and knowledge gives you a higher place in gender.
Does that mean knowledge is worth something or not? It's worth something right? It's very expensive. It's very valuable.
It's very valuable. And anything which is valuable, you have to work hard for it. It does
come for free. You can't just sit down and go to sleep and I wake up and I get knowledge.
And then I will just go downstairs and relax and play my games, and I'll get knowledge. If you want knowledge, you have to work hard for it.
Because you're going to get a high place in Janay. sha Allah from that knowledge, so you have to work very, very hard for it. That's the first thing I want to share with you.
The second thing that I want to share with you is
and on that first topic before I do the second thing, there is a famous statement, some of the scholars they said, If you give knowledge, everything you have, it will give you something back. And if you give knowledge, something that you have, it will give you nothing at all, who can explain this to me. If you give knowledge, everything you have,
if you give knowledge, everything you have, it will give you something back. And if you give knowledge something that you have, it will not give you anything back at all.
I don't want to take same person answering questions
you answer for yourself or your answer for telegram. No.
Kids class, you have to be under the age of whatever the biggest ages here. You have to be under the age of 15 or 14 or whatever.
Someone answers to me and see me answer this for me. My words are all coming out wrong today.
answer for me.
If you give knowledge, everything you have, it will give you something back. If you give knowledge something that you have, it will give you nothing at all.
Who is going to answer this question for me, God.
So what does knowledge give you?
But if you give everything, then knowledge will give you something back. So knowledge is like very hard to take out. For example, if you think about like mining gold, yeah, you're taking gold out of the ground, you have to dig a lot of rocks to get a little bit of gold. And if you just tap a few rocks, you don't get anything at all, it's like that.
You have to give all your effort and your time and your energy for knowledge and you'll get something back.
But if you only just do a little bit of work,
maybe in all of those little few rocks, you tap there is no gold at all.
Okay, now someone might say, but I've got a job, or I've got study or I've got school or I've got family or I've got I've got stuff to do. That's true. But whenever you have free time you give your time to knowledge about Islam. And if you do that, you will get something back. But if it's the case that nine times out of 10 You're playing games and one time out of 10 You're getting knowledge, you just get very, very small amount of knowledge.
I give you another example you can understand you guys look at this bookcase over here on YouTube. You can't see it. But it's there's a big bookcase over here. Look at the bookcase over here. How long will it take you to read all of those books?
No, realistically, realistically, let's just say on each bookshelf, there are lessons that let's just approximate. There are 20 volumes.
Now, maybe not that maybe there maybe there are 15 on each bookshelf, there are 15 volumes. How long will it take you to read one of those books from beginning to end? Just one volume from beginning to end?
How long you think? Five days?
To read the whole I'll give you the book. Now you see how fast you read?
How long will it take? You
know, it won't take you a year. Let's just say put your hands down. Let's just say for example, there's 15 books on that shelf. Okay. And each book takes you 10 days to read.
Okay, that's easy. Okay. So it's 150 days. Okay. 1-234-567-8910. Let's just say there are 20 shelves there.
That's 3000 days. Okay, there is another bookshelf exactly the same over there. That 6000 days. Okay, we're getting on for almost 20 years. These books. I'm going to tell you something, are not even the basics of Islam.
Are all that not even the most basic things. We don't even have a book for all the basic things many of
But not every single basic thing about Islam is that.
So what will happen if you read one book a year
later, so now let's hope that you have 3000 years left to live, or 6000 years left to live
it'll be a little bit. Now it won't be the size of a note, you'll have knowledge, but
you only have a little bit.
And if you work all day, how, let's say for example, follow me, follow me here. Let's just say, for example, that one of you lives for 50 years.
Okay. And every single day you start, you're reading those books, and you're reading and reading and reading, you still won't finish
by the time your life finishes. But you will have a lot of knowledge.
And that's the meaning that if you give knowledge, everything, it will give you something. And if you give knowledge, something, it won't give you anything at all.
Okay, the second thing I want to share with you guys, knowledge is based on two things, you have to have them both.
And hefele. While Sam,
memorizing and understanding
what happens if you memorize and you don't understand.
Who can tell me, if you memorize and you don't understand what will happen.
You do the wrong things. You're right, yeah, you're right about that you do do the wrong things. What now?
You've memorized everything, but you have no idea what those things mean.
And so you become like what example like the example of the donkey that carries books. I can bring a donkey I can bring the donkey downstairs and I can take all these books, and I can start loading these books on the donkey sahih al Bukhari Sahih Muslim
Tafseer of the Quran Tafseer of poverty on the donkey. You know, the donkey has such a like big satchel and the donkey is carrying all the books. I can take the sila of the prophets on the donkey.
And the donkey can carry a lot of knowledge.
But when we go out in the street, I say to the donkey. What's to do after leaving the Masjid? What does the donkey say? doesn't say anything? Because the donkey doesn't understand. It just carries the books. It doesn't understand the books. It just carries them.
Yeah, it doesn't understand them. It just carries them. If you want a modern example, let me give you an example. Google, for example.
How many millions of Islamic books are stored there.
But it doesn't understand them. It searches for words you type in Muslim a brings you muslim you type in dua, it brings you to it. It doesn't understand anything. It just carries it. It doesn't understand it. Now, what about the other example? What about if you understand, but you don't memorize anything?
That's true, but I'm talking about the other way. Now. What about if you What about if you understand you really understand,
but you haven't memorized it? It's not in your memory. It's just you understand it, but it's not in your memory. What do you think you have idea?
I like that. That's really good. What you said is really good. Your understanding will fade away. Why? Because you're a person if the book is in your hands, you understand? And if the book is not in your hands, you don't understand. So what will you do tomorrow? If you lose your donkey
to give an example. You put Sahil Bihari on your donkey, you put the Muslim you put all of the books, the Tafseer everything you put it on your donkey a donkey went
now what will you do?
Now what are you going to do? You don't know anything? You're like, I don't know anything. I don't know any two hours about anything. I don't know how to read anything because I'm a person. If the book is in my hand, I understand it really well. But if
If you take the book away from my hand,
I'm not going to understand anything at all.
What are you going to do if you're teaching from your iPad?
And the battery dies? My dear brothers in Islam today we are going to study the importance of
charging your battery. Because he doesn't know what to say. Right? Because he's not in here. There is a statement I'm not serious. There's a statement a scholar says very beautiful. I want you to explain it to me. They said the only thing which is really knowledge is what you take into the bathroom
The only thing which is really knowledge is what you take into the bathroom. Stuff want to explain that one?
Nun, simple simple. What don't you take into the bathroom?
The Quran, the most half the book, right? What else don't you take into the bathroom?
He means that the knowledge is in your heart. What goes into the bathroom with you? The knowledge which is in your heart goes in with you. Your books don't go in the bathroom with you. You don't take your books in the bathroom. So he said, If your knowledge doesn't come in the bathroom with you, it's not knowledge. Meaning if your knowledge is in books, do you understand what he means? If your knowledge is in a book, it's not knowledge. If your knowledge is inside of a book, it's not knowledge. The knowledge is the knowledge which is in your head. I'm going to give you a really good example of this.
Many times, things happen to you unexpectedly. Okay? Things happen to you surprise. You will not wait you are not expecting it to happen. In that case, you don't have a book Ready.
Right? Somebody comes to you and it's like, look, there's an emergency this happened. Oh, one minute, run to the book and you start looking for your answer. No, you can't do that. The knowledge is what you carry in your heart. And that's why there's an evidence from the Quran.
This evidence from the Quran
Allah subhanaw taala I'm going to read you the ayah and I want you guys to tell me
what the evidence is.
I want you guys to tell me
it's in sort of ankle boots.
And I won't if you can explain this to me I'll be very happy.
Allah subhanaw taala set Bell who is on begginer tune fee sudo real levena who
were my age how to be IR Tina in large volume.
Bell who is on the unit one fee so Doreen ladina auto line.
This Quran is a series of Kalia Ayat clear clear evidence is clear ayat
in the hearts of the people who've been given knowledge
this Quran is clear ayat in the hearts of the people who have been given knowledge or in the chest of the people who have been given knowledge
the knowledge helps you okay good
it's going to be clear if you understand it, no, it's easier than that you're going
to understand it
you only understand it if you memorize it That's true. But I just wanted you to think about this what you are right what you said your all your what you said is right. But think of it like this. Allah didn't describe the Quran as being in the most half as being a these are ayat which are written down on the page. Where did he say the IATA fee so Dory, ladina ultralight in the hearts of the people being given knowledge.
So the knowledge that the Quran is not what is is not on a paper, anything. That's not what is important. What's important is it was kept in people's hearts
and that tells you that memorizing it is more important
than many people realize,
okay, memorization and understanding. The next thing I'm going to tell you in five minutes, we're going to finish inshallah. The next thing I want to tell you about knowledges is lab
is huge. Agreed? Look, all these books, Islam is so much to learn so much to learn.
Is it possible somebody could keep all these books in their memory? Not realistically, no, there are people. It said about Imam Shafi Rahim Allah to Allah, that he used to have to cover up one page when he's reading a book with his hand, because everything that his eye set on he memorized. And if he didn't cover the page, his eyes used to used to mix it because used to memorize everything that his I saw.
But most people are not like that.
Most people are not like that. Most of us, we call memorize everything. So we need to have a very clever way of making Islam simple and breaking it down into pieces. So the very first thing we're going to do to break Islam down into pieces is we're going to break Islam into subjects. Isn't that what we did in the kids class? We did have C? We did aqidah. We did, Sierra? We did? We did? Manners. We did all of the topics.
Separately, right? The topics we did them all. This is one topic is the next topic. This is the next topic. This is the next topic. That's the first thing
that the second thing that you're going to do
is in each topic, you need to have just a few books that you study really well. You can read all these books, don't worry, every book in his message, you can read it in sha Allah, don't worry. But the books that you really study really, really well have to just be a small number of books.
Why is that? Because too many. So instead of trying to study all of them really well read them all, but just have a few books that you study really, really, really well. And whenever you learn something from another book, what do you do? You take that knowledge, and you write it on the book that you studied? Are you with me? Yeah, do you understand? So out of all of the books of Sierra, maybe Sierra on the shelf is like three ship three of those shelves, all of it is zero.
Okay, on there, over there, I have two shelves of zero books.
Okay, one and a half shelves of zero books.
Of all of those books, I'm just going to study one or two of them really well.
The rest of them I'm going to read. Whenever I learned something I didn't know I'm going to write it down on the book that I studied really well. So in the end, should we come back to the donkey? When I want to put my books on my donkey. I don't know what you guys have against donkeys any I want to put my books on my donkey, I don't have to put the whole bookshelf,
I can just put the few books that
I actually really need them.
I'll give you a different example. Let's let's leave the dunk suitcase. If I said to you, you have to put the most important books in a suitcase. But you can only have one suitcase.
So now you have to choose what you're going to put. I mean, if I just put one shelf, my suitcase is false. So I only have one shelf, all the important things, I have to put it on one shelf or two shelves to fit it in my suitcase. So to do that, that means I have to choose. But does that mean any book I can choose from the shelf and study and then the rest doesn't make sense, right? I have to choose the best book on the shelf.
I have to choose the best book on the shelf to make it my main book. And then everything else I'm going to write it in then.
Everything else I'm going to write it in that one
The next thing I'm going to do is I'm not gonna try to
go too difficult at the beginning. I'm going to start off with a book that is easy.
And then a book that is in the middle and then a book that is a bit difficult.
Here. I'm going to start with the easy, then the middle than the difficult and I'm going to go slowly and take one Hadith at a time.
I'm going to finish with a story
and it's a story of a man who came to visit Imam Akhmed to get Hadith.
So he came to Imam Ahmed
Guys listen up. We're going to finish with this story. Sit down don't yet don't do that.
A man came to Imam admet
and he wanted to learn from him Hadith.
He had a problem. He came to Imam Ahmed and Imam Ahmed was in prison.
Actually he was in like a house arrested.
He wasn't so long story about why but he was because he was practicing Islam properly and they didn't like what he was practicing. So they put him in a house arrest
and they didn't allow him to teach anyone anything.
The man he said I came all the way from I can't remember very very far
from Al Andalus.
and I came all the way for you and to learn Hadith from you is can I do
cannot do anything.
So he suggested one thing.
He says I will come to you every day at your house like at your door.
And when I come to you like just I will come quickly to you for something you know like people used to come and knock maybe deliver something, take something in that time give me one Hadith.
Every day, just give me one and I will go
that man collected the biggest collection of Hadith that we know existed.
And he collected it from
one Hadith everyday or a handful of Hadith everyday.
It's amazing what you can do by learning just a few things every day. Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah Tala
his teacher said to him
don't learn any more than three things every day.
Just learn three
Hadith every single day 353 things in fact three things about what's right what's wrong, learn three everyday don't do anymore.
And he became a huge Imam great Imam of Islam that everybody knows about him and everybody knows about his name and everyone knows how much knowledge he had
three things a day. So you don't have to learn so much every day. But you have to study every single day.
You had a question?
Me that one that most people somewhere and you have found that the books
are fun to see.
But this I think was they had some fun
I don't know. That's a very good question. Maybe you try to find the story today for me in the house. I will try to find it for your child. Yes moving.
Very good, highly recommend to LML Khurana 11. The best of you are those who learn the Quran and teach it and that's what we start with. In our journey to knowledge. We start with the Quran and the Hadith of the Prophet slice Allah. And then from there we go on. We build on our knowledge of Islam like that. Okay, that's what Allah azza wa jal made easy for me to mention today. And Allah azza wa jal knows best was a long lesson today. It felt like you guys did really well though. Mashallah.
Sorry. One hour, six minutes, okay. It's not too bad. Wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad, wa ala alihi wa sahbihi ah, mine sorry. Someone asked the question
on top of your priority
so Paula, sometimes people ask me questions in the class and I forget what like one that and Sandy Hook, Alicia Parnell and shaytaan made me forget Subhan Allah. Sometimes people ask me a question. And I said it's important and it just goes because in a week if people ask you like 100 questions, you forgot the first one by the time you get to the 99th one you forgot what the first one was? So as people just remind me if you ask me a question and I promise to answer it, and I forgot about it, remind me about it.
That's what Allah made easy for me to mention Allah knows best wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi H
I will see you guys next week in sha Allah to Allah or at least start bussaco
