Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen
wa salatu salam ala Abdullah he was SULI Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi H mine ama that
so first of all, I would like to begin by praising Allah. And I would like to begin by asking Allah to exalt the mansion and Grant peace, towel messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sent them to his family and his companions.
I would also like to extend
my thanks and gratitude to all of the organizers, the administration of the masjid, who facilitated this event to take place in such a beautiful Masjid. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to place it heavy on the scale of their good deeds yarmulke Yama
and we ask Allah subhanahu wa to Allah to make this Masjid a place which is blessed a place where Allah is tranquil tranquillity descends, and the angels surrounded and mercy covers the people within it. And that Allah subhanaw taala mentions them in a gathering that is better than the gathering that they are in.
Our topic today is a really beautiful topic
we're going to be talking about
it's difficult to maybe even find the right summary for it. But we're going to be talking about L mother Hybels up here
the medina hip, the madhhab
as it relates to fit.
Now it's very important that we call this El Medina Hebrew fake here, because what we're not here to talk to you about today is El Medina, Hebrew Arkadia.
The different ways and the different means and the different beliefs that people have as it relates to actually that and Eman. That's not our discussion today at all.
Today we came to talk about
Alpha zero, alpha Korea, the branches of the religion as it relates to
and we came to talk about a number of things. We want to talk about tadi l madhhab. Where did the madhhab come in history, or what we might call towork. al-mada hip how the med have developed over history. Some of the scholars call it Teddy who tertiary the history of Islamic legislation and law and where that Islamic legislation and law came from. We also want to talk about how a person learns America.
And in this you must forgive me because
I'm a mix here right here. I'm a strange mix. When I started studying Islam, I started studying it upon the madhhab of Lima Muhammad.
Not really out of choice,
although it's an excellent method to study, but just because that was what was available for my teachers. So we took AXA son Mozart and these books in the Metalab of Imam Ahmed
xylem was talking about and these books. Then I started teaching and I'm interested to learn Maria.
We went on
the madhhab of Lima Shafi.
So all that I'm going to gather for you for the Madhava Imam Shafi I took it from chapter one.
So not that I'm blaming chef, if I say something wrong, it's my fault. But I took it from him because he grew up in the meth lab, studying the madhhab and memorizing the books of the madhhab and teaching them at home. So from him I took some discussion about a month ago Sheffy as for
the Hanafi madhhab, which I think is important for us to talk about because it's very popular here in South Africa.
I went to research some of the books and the way people study the mishap I researched it for myself so I'm not going to say to you I'm not
an authority on the madhhab but we took some of the most famous books that are studied in the madhhab just to present to you how a person studies because
as we're going to talk about later on today in sha Allah how to add up
and hook more add a che follow on unto savoury This is very important
like one, this is something that I'm going to give you as a principle if you if you want just to kind of say, Okay, today I'm a bit tired, I'm going to switch off. I'm going to really give you basically two things. If you take these two things, as general principles, you everything I'm going to say is going to fall under these two things. The first ad hoc No, attache, federal rule, and as a worry, you can't issue a ruling for something until you understand what the thing you're issuing a ruling for is
for so many people, I see them arguing about a murder happened here. And the person has tarsal Warren
at a sowhat which is false cultic or even we can say to so Warren Barton a completely false understanding of what the madhhab is. So someone comes and says what haram haram Malik Hara, you cannot take him at home. The other one comes and says foul do is upon you. Like he said to me when I first became Muslim, they said yeah, he shook Kofi Manik without your Eman.
I said why what did I do? They said which might have Are you
the problem all of this discussion is 100 feet or so worth l madhhab. They don't have an understanding of what the mud had filthy is at all. So this one is arguing about something his understanding of the madhhab is completely wrong and he has noticed a lot of what a man had felt he is
and the other one also has no properties so what are what the mess had fucky is
and that's why sometimes you might find we talk about this later you might find that a person argues with you over something which really is are we going to cover this this a nice masala later on. Can an ordinary person or I'm gonna say cancers wrong, I'm gonna say to what extent can an ordinary person or non learned person follower madhhab?
Of course into sub we agree and anyone can say Mohammed Tim al Hanif Mohammad timol, Maliki, Mohammed timoshev. Very Mohammed, Tim and humbly and into sub Yes. But where might the lay man actually struggle?
As an example, someone comes and says, I am Abdullah. A chef very high Kalia Abdullah, it's lovely to meet you.
Yeah, Abdullah, could you tell me one book that you have taken in the chef every month have?
At least at least at least you took one book, right? At least you have one single source met in addition? Or at least you have one single source of the madhhab?
What do you mean? Further point is that a lot of people who argue about things in this issue, because basically they don't understand at all what the method is,
or how to use it, or how to benefit from it, or they don't understand
some of the Maasai within it.
So they might confuse for example, the issues of tech lead with the issue of, for example, in the sub attributing yourself to the madhhab or they might confuse tech lead, which is an in reality badura For many people and necessity for many people.
Versus what some people call attack legal armor, an absolute blind following to the point that person says Don't tell me the Hadith
and animate heavy I'm on my method
and they might confuse this issue I'm not talking about what the ruling we haven't covered the outcome yet. We just talked about the soul of the person is shouting at someone wala haram. Allah cure McMullen. This is evil. It didn't come in the Quran. It didn't come in the Sunnah and fighting about it. And the person Aslan doesn't differentiate between the types of tech lead, he didn't understand what tech lead is, he doesn't understand what he had is he doesn't understand, Damara, him, the stages a person goes through in their understanding of field. So they're arguing about something or saw that and they don't understand it.
So the first card that we're going to take is a hook more attache, foreign anticipatory until you understand what we're talking about, you won't be able to judge what is allowed and what is not allowed.
The second principle and I'm going to make three now not to the second principle that we're going to take
is the principle that is mentioned in the statement of Allah azza wa jal, Waka Luca Jana, Come on Martin was
So far, we made you into a middle Oma.
A lot of people when they heard Mohammed Tim al Hanbury is going to come here to our half Hanafi half Shafi town and he's going to tell us that you have to be Lammott heavy. You're not allowed to have a mother
and he's going to take you away from what your father's used to worship. And he's going to change any Dean that you were taught.
And on the other side
I need the other side and there is the other side also sent messages going out. This Mohammed Tim, I heard him praise Abu Yusuf Accardi I heard him say something good about a be useful call the Sahib Abu Hanifa
Rahim Allah Allah Allah I don't think this brother is upon the Sunnah
far we see what if rotten, whatever exaggeration and extremism on both sides
what can Delica Anna come on mattone Wasaga Allah gave us the Kitab and the Sunnah for us to be neither extreme on one side more than the other. That doesn't mean in every mess Allah you go in the middle
should a woman when a cop will not halfway
it's not like that, right? But that's a misunderstanding. Right? My former partner It's a misunderstanding that the meaning of what Satya is in the middle of everything.
It's not in the middle of everything. But what it means is to be just and to be fair, and not to be extreme.
Because the thing that destroyed the people who came before you is alHuda Wolfie Dean being extreme in the religion.
And also in this sometimes, when people make statements you also have to contextualize the statements they make you have to put the statement in context of where it came from.
Some people live in a situation where a particular madhhab filth he is associated with a particular madhhab akurdi Any particular matter have been filled
Chevrier, in this city all of them are.dot.dot.on This Aqeedah of this Aqeedah so people then you confuse the two and they start to talk about the fifth he might have there might have been felt as though it might have been Akita
or those people they are you though Scheffer, er ba Luna mo de lune de misguide themselves and misguide other people asking you're talking about aqidah you mixed elmen habla aka de will multiple foci you to start talking about someone's belief it doesn't go with you.
You didn't talk about the issue of fit, so we must be just unfair.
Just unfair. And this brings me to my third point I was going to include in a second one but I'm going to make a clear third point that our goal Bill H Ma, Mohammed Tim says what Bill H ma H Mar consensus that the goal of a Muslim is to attach themselves to the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the acquirer of the IMA are the four Imams on this topic is so much it is mortality era from them. It has been narrated from them from so many different people in so many different books in so many different places.
That the goal of the Muslim is to attach their heart to the Quran and the Sunnah.
Now this doesn't mean I'm having a go at the medina for clear. It doesn't have to be a mud hut, filthy in anything that takes you a detaches you from the Kitab and the Sunnah. This is a problem. We are here to attach our hearts to the Quran and the Sunnah Allah azza wa jal didn't send down the Maliki madhhab with Jibreel.
He didn't, I'm gonna vary them to the mothership here so to see you kept saying that he Scheffer he didn't send the Maliki method was Gibreel
he didn't. Allah azza wa jal sent down the book of Allah and the Sunnah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said talk to me from Shane.
I left among you two things. You will not be misguided lentil d mu buddy. You will not be misguided after me as long as you hold on to them. Kitab Allah He was so netting the book of Allah and the Sunnah.
And I think everyone knows that muda hip Philip here by name or not mentioned in the call
nor are they mentioned in the Sunnah.
Sometimes you find funny things like statements about armodafinil Hot Tub. And in the footnotes it says
perhaps he took the view of the mammoth chef.
Yes, I love
how did Erma take the view of the mammoth chef?
Sometimes you find things like this, they don't mean he took it from Shafi, but you know, they mean he took the same estate law the same idea he took, but it's funny you see, you know
La La aroma, perhaps Ahmed
Alpha Vela is Chef he took the opinion of Imam Shafi.
This is somewhat impossible.
The earliest of the four Imams died 150 After the hijab, right. Why am I allowed to add
up to what is it 257 So 150 to 250 years after the hijab there was no armor never met lava lava Hanifa wala Malik wala Shafi Ahmed, Rahim Allah Allah, Allah Allah.
So the point is, if we understand this issue nicely, we have a good to solve. And we are balanced in the sense we're just in the rulings of Islam, respectful to the scholars of Islam, but we stick we're not shy to say that Allah azza wa jal sent down the Quran and the Sunnah he didn't send down another Hebrew
He sent down the Quran and the Sunnah.
Well my auntie Quran in Hawa in Hua Indore, why don't you add to that that Abu Bakr Ahmad on Earth man and Alia Bobby Allahu
Allah, you can be so naughty also Nicola Rashidi stick to my sunnah this wonderful afar ICD. Those who would have thought Aerocity and didn't know any med hub of Abu Hanifa. Well, and Malik were a Shafi.
So the point is here, we're going to be just we're not going to take away from our aroma.
We're not going to detract from them or to speak badly about them or to detract from the hikma that they did for the OMA and honestly, I believe when you finish studying the motherhood for Korea, you're going to say ma of Omaha Hill. What an amazing service these people did for the OMA
and they did an amazing service to the Ummah we're not going to take away from that. But we're not going to be shy in touching people's hearts to the Quran and the Sunnah. As did who Who did we take this from? Did we invent this ourselves? We took it from an Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah, Allah Allah, they were Malika Chefin Akhmad all of them kept saying, to go to the Kitab in the Sunnah, we're going to bring some of the statements that they said with regard to attaching your heart to the Quran and the Sunnah.
So this is important. So a person now In summary, who studies a meth head filthy
and they do so while attaching their heart to the Quran and the Sunnah. Then this person in sha Allah Who to Allah has done I don't even say they haven't done wrong, they've done well.
He's done a good job to study them a day here. More October, big title Raj.
In in order, in stages, by taking the different topics of within the wider topic of fit, like fit, Soul of physical cooperative here, photo conflict here, and Philadelphia, all of these different topics we're going to talk about, in fact, he takes them and he takes them from a curriculum that is
more October, it's ordered, and it is
bit teta roach. It's starting off easy. Then a little bit more, a little bit more, a little bit more. He's done great. But his heart is attached to what what is he craved for what is he hope for what is he dreaming of at night? He's attached to his heart to the Quran and the Sunnah. He wants to obey Allah and obey the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Yeah you Hala Dena Amman are three or Allah wa our two year old Rasul Allah, what holy Ambrym income from the best of what he said about the word old Amma is Allah Allah who will O'Meara they are the scholars, and they are the leaders. Allah told us absolute obedience to Allah, absolute obedience to the Rasul sal Allahu alayhi wa
sallam. As for the aroma and the O'Meara, the leaders and the scholars, the obedience to them is Fito Utah it Lillahi wa Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the light of your obedience to Allah and his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
This is just a call as like a little something just to get you started. So that the one who wants to run away they can run and the one who wants to stay, they can stay as Insha Allah, they need, this is the metatarsal of what I want to share with you today.
quani let's talk very, very briefly. And the problem is just my introduction to fit is like 24 hours long. Now that's really it was 2624 26 hours, something like that. So I'm gonna have to be like, very, very summarize the word Fick. Because we have to start with the to soul right, we said, before we understand the method, we have to have at least somewhat of what the method is, somebody tells me what has happened. First of all, that modality we're talking about are not to do with aqidah it's fifth. So let's talk about the first word
or the first meaning of the word fake.
It is alpha mu ducky.
It is to have detailed understanding. I don't like to say that it's the it's just to have understanding and some people say alpha cool. That's true. But in Arabic, the words are different, right? We need to have something a bit more yummy. What what makes the difference between understanding and fit? Why don't we call it
the muda heap of understanding why do we say fit? Because fit is about deep understanding.
Coronavirus Rahim Allah to Allah He said Alpha Wellpath will have Osman wa hidden so Hey, you don't know Allah, Iraqi che will enemy be He? From that? He said he's the first of all, he said these three letters far and puff and they are a single route
which tells you about understanding something and having knowledge of it.
He said somatosensory Delica. In Australia. He said, Then it became used specifically for the Sharia.
It became specifically for the Sharia. Even Okay, and Rahim Allah to Allah He said, Well, filco a hustler them. What were faremo Moradi moto Candolim mean Khademi he felt is more specific than understanding it means knowing what the person who is speaking knowing what they want.
Other said alerting
and more SEO finaps A Deaf arrow, Lil AMA. It's the knowledge that affects you and impels you to act.
And the statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in your region that will be higher. Are you familiar with it?
This is Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim from the Hadith from Aria, probably Allah Han, whoever Allah wants good for he gives him Philip II he gives him a detailed deep understanding of the religion or he gives him knowledge that he acts upon because that's some of the scholars they said the difference between understanding and Fick is that fifth is knowledge that you act upon. And for him is this you know, like I know, it's hard Albert. I know it's haram but I still do it. But
they said that fake it means to really understand it properly.
that's why I want to quote a statement from Alfa Romeo al Rahim, Allah Allah He said in num, alpha p. And Lady M. Takahashi. What a statistical question. What is our caller called Ability Tabby was sooner.
We're in Carla. Carla will Kitab us sooner when Secretary Secretary Bill Kitabi was soon.
He said the person who has 50 fucky is someone who the fear of Allah makes him speak and the fear of Allah makes him silent. When he speaks he speaks by the Quran and the Sunnah. And when he silent he's silent because of the Quran and the Sunnah and the Quran sunnah tell him to be silent. And if the matter becomes unclear to him, or Devil either on him he he brings it back to the person knows it.
And at Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah to Allah He said, merrily for two neffs murder ha ha ha filk is to know yourself, what is counted for it and what is counted against it. We're going to come back to this because it is important.
Muhammad Ali, this is a very important stage in FIP. Knowing what is in your favor and what is against you.
As for the
sort of technical
definition of fake
so we understand what it is.
There are many definitions and we don't have time to take all of them but we could say Elmo be Camus, Sherry l amellia. Al Mukhtar Saba mean, I did let you have tough Celia.
It is to know the rulings of the Sharia that relate to actions.
Practical rulings, why practical rules? What other rulings are there in the Sharia that are not
amellia For example, I like to call it for example, issues of what you believe believe your belief Iman things like that. Yes, you have to implement them and practice them. But these are come they are come a Sharia and you can call them la mia then you have to know you have to learn what is required from us to know them like Allah's names and attributes. What is required from you that's why some of the scholars they call it
at tau hadal le or they call it tau hidden mad fit well it's but the tau hate of knowing Allah and affirming who Allah is that what is required from us knowledge type there are some things are common Islam there are some rulings
that are related to the actions you do. How you pray and how you make will do
your transactions with people.
But where are these rulings taken from?
They could be taken from two places.
They could be taken from
and each family yeah.
If that's the right term for it, they could be taken from
a dilla H mallia evidences which are general and summarized. For example, Al Amro you feed
every command that comes in the Quran tells you that this thing is watching. Allah said we're Hakim was salah, perform the salah you don't have to ask a Salah fault
Allah said Akima Salah Salah is fourth type what kind of evidence is this
is evidence which is it's mainly it's generic. It's like it can be used for many it can be used for Salah it can use for Waldo it can be used for it can be used for many many many different things. It can be used for Mamilla transactions Marriage Divorce, and it's like a principle
in nature and it covers all types of legislative rulings. Mostly we study this in ossola film
mostly we study this in
also in also affect most of the time.
What we're looking for in fifth in the metaphor, generally speaking, is we are looking at if we're talking about Alpha zero alpha here, the branches are fit. We're looking at L A dilla. To Tov Celia, specific Ayat on specific topics specific Hadith on specific topics.
You ya you have leadin
either punctum a la sala de foxy who would you have come
or you believe when you stand up to pray, wash your faces? What idea come in my office and your arms up to your elbows?
Worms I hope you will all see come and wipe over your heads what our July come Ill campaign and wash your feet up to your ankles.
Is this a generic evidence that's used in all areas of Sharia? No, it's a specific evidence that is used in what in the issue of wardo Taha
maybe also you can bring it in the issue of Salah either come to me the salah you have to stand up to pray. But generally this is the Hara. Salah is not something that's a principle you can apply to everything. So in general, and this is very summarized, it's not very detailed. It's not very
accurate in the sense of everything. But generally speaking also ruled fake deals with the generic stuff
deals with the overriding principles. You can think of a solar filter as a toolkit by which you extract rulings from the Quran and the Sunnah. And
any other evidences in Islam.
As for for Alpha zero alpha here, what we call the branches of faith, or we call it faith itself. We're dealing with specific issues in specific things. We're not dealing with aqidah because we said Alaikum and Amelie yes or the mother had funky I have nothing to say about that.
He that generally speaking, any day Islam that the sciences of Islam or motor data, right, you can't separate and say, I'm only ever going to study fic. And I'm never going to study your soul fit, I will be left, never going to take it you can't do that because fit in also everything goes together, right? You can see I'm going to study fish and I will never look at anything in the seal. Because by default, you're going to come across things that are also in the sea right and you can't escape it. But in general in general, Al Maga haber alpha here, they do not deal with Messiah and later God, they don't deal with anything related to al Qaeda. They deal with Al Kamil amellia, the practical
There are lots of sciences within that are encompassed within the madhhab. Or within the site WWE, you can call them branches of effect. In other words, what would we call them? We in in our Institute, we call it masa will fit he will also like the path of studying FIP has many sciences within it.
And generally, I'm just going to talk to you about maybe four or five of them. So again, we have a good two so what of what you will expect to find in the madhhab
so no doubt fake requires some all of the sciences of Islam you have to have Tafseer you have to have good Arabic language you have to have knowledge of Hadith what is authentic? What is not you need all of it right to to issue a ruling in Islam or study a ruling in Islam.
You have to you need to know all of that camera footage, right? And I can't show you the full moon of Islam you need to know about Tafseer you need to know how to eat you need to know CLI you need to know Arabic language. But these typically are dealt with outside of the method.
Why? Because pretty much they are dealt with together. In other words, it doesn't matter what method Have you taken, what curriculum you're taking, you're still studying the same book of Arabic language to a greater or lesser extent.
But what are the sciences that the med have got involved in? That's my question. So the method doesn't really get involved in Arabic You don't get like Hanafi Arabic Maliki Arabic share very Arabic.
Little bit, you know sort of fit maybe but this is like the little alpha of what the words mean and things like that. You don't you don't really get that you don't really get tipsy or you don't get Hanafi tafsir and Chevy. Yes, you might get a more fast sale, who attributes themselves to the Sharper Image have no problem. But you don't get necessarily a meth habit that teaches you a method filthy that teaches you tafsir Allahumma unless we're talking about tiff sera cam, the rulings of the cam of the Quran, then in this case, yes because it's fit basically the person is going to teach you fifth from the Quran. So they might teach you fit from the Quran upon the madhhab of Al Imam
Malik fit from the Quran upon them antipoverty man and Chef vary for example like that.
But in general, Hadith also, yes, certain scholars of Hadith were Hanafi others were Shafi others were Maliki others were humbly but in general it's not like the Hanafi stone take from Muslim and Muhammad right we can go on Taunton LA to had didn't even Muslim I don't take anything from that mistake is a humbly Muslim. They don't take it like that right outside of the method. Is that clear? Those topics Hadith Tafseer zero aroma Arabiya? There they are. Yes, the authors might be attributed to a method. But generally speaking, those books are not taught as part of the method so to speak.
Does that mean the method cookie doesn't affect them? does? It does affect them? Many, many times it does in Tafseer you see an author who is chattery
go to the i o la Mr. Manisa. You touch the a woman what you're going to see you're going to see this author usually he's gonna support and use this it validates the opinion of Lima machete Rahim Allah to Allah regarding breaking the widow when you touch a woman who is age Nebia for example. So here, you know yes, it's going to affect what people write. But you don't go and study on madhhab Philippi and sit studying Tafseer poverty.
What do you study inside the matter? There are a number of there are actually lots but I'm just going to talk about
took about 678 topics that are typically taught the first one is what we call alpha or alpha here. The branches are filled.
And this floor up here is what people call fit any they sometimes summarize it and call it for
Check. Yanni I'm looking at a deal let's talk CD I want will do, how do I do it? I want to know how to make the harder I want to know about marriage divorce. Okay, I'll follow up here. How is it organized? It's organized by dividing it typically into two into a bar that and when I'm at a badass acts of worship muamalat our dealings and transactions. So in what Amala to find,
buying and selling you find the car you find divorce you find, and in more ammo that you find in a bar that you find about prayer and you find about so generally the A bar that what do you expect to find in there, you expect to find the four pillars of Islam minus the first one because the first one is aqidah. So you're going to find a Salah, you're going to find Zega you're going to find some fasting, you're going to find hutch, also usually but not in every method. But usually you're going to find Jihad also in a Baghdad. Some of them put it in what Amala I'll be honest, I don't know in the books of the ANA where they put it but in some of the Sharia you see this sometimes they put it
in usually they put it in a bar that an act of worship, or sometimes they put it in more amulet, because it has an aspect of both to me, like you're you're talking about, you know, there are aspects of dealings with people and there are aspects of worship.
In the issue of morality, you're going to find all the things that represent interactions between people. So you're going to find mica, Tala. Al, they're buying, selling Marriage Divorce.
And later on, some of them make a third category. Some of them don't break it into two, some of them put in the third one, they put alojado wodgina. Yet, punishments and Crimes and Punishments, and some of them for Crimes and Punishments, just the added in the end, and some of them separated from a die of different authors within the meta hubhub. There, but generally you're going to find acts of worship, you're going to find dealings, and maybe at the end, you're going to find Crime and Punishment. That's what you're going to find in
this is Alpha zero alpha Korea. In other words, what people call fib. Then we come to Seoul, and
we said also, it deals with a deal that will each mallia A deals with generic tools, which are evidences that can be used across the whole of the Quran and the Sunnah.
Like we mentioned, an emerald defeatable job. When you receive a command from Allah, the basic principle is that this command is far done, watch it upon you.
It's fall, don't watch it.
Quick benefit on Farington wajib.
There is still a hat, right. And this is actually a topic within within the broader topic of fic is you should take Terry who madhhab was did
you should take the terminology of the madhhab. For example, what does the word wajib mean in the books of the Anath is slightly different to the word wajib in the books of what they sometimes call the gym, or the other three cars generally and also they tend to be a little bit somewhat close to each other.
The Medicare share theory and Hannah Biller, they tend to use each other's books in school and they tend to so the point is that the word might mean something different. So someone comes and says to you, for example, to look at before Fajr is watching
how you first you need to understand Akabane Sorry, one second, what do you mean by why Japan? Is it vital? Is it pseudonym or al Qaeda. And that's so the point is you need to know your terminologies because you are going to get confused by the term wajib then make it even more complicated. Some of them are that have especially the Hanabi law, they might use the word YG differently depending on what they're talking about. So for example, in hajj, when they talk about something that is wajib
and the difference between a rockin
Archon will watch you back the things that you cannot make up for you and if you leave them you mess them up and you are a buyer that is cancelled and the things that you can make up for for example. So there are all kinds of terminologies you should get used to and that is its own topic.
They sometimes call it is still a hat, l madhhab. Sometimes they call it tadi Elmet have the history of the madhhab. So you know because it changes this scholar, the early scholar, he uses this terminology. Have you ever seen for example, the early Shafilea when they use the word macro?
Most of the time they mean how the vast majority of the time when they use the word macro. They mean haram
But their terminology is so they'll say like, Xena, Xena is macro. They don't mean macro Yanni, that if you do it, you don't get punished. And
so the point is that the word terminology could be different, depending on the shape depending on the time depending on the book. And so
from the sciences that we study within the science of FIP, is we study Alcoa, I don't for Korea,
the principles of fit so now we're taking principles COA or, you know, generic principles that we can apply. But they are fifth principles. And sometimes they call them core items, surely, because they sometimes argue, does this principle is it really Fick? Or have you just stolen it from ossola Fifth and put it in there?
It happens sometimes.
So you've got principles and rules, you'll learn tight.
You've also got what some of them call,
for example, top a call to us hub.
Learning all the different
people in the meth hub who were they, for example, the men have started with the Imam. And this is a big misconception. Any people think that the med hub, for example of Malik is the opinions of Imam Malik. This is a misconception strike it out, cross it off.
It's not even close.
The madhhab is attributed to the Imam but in reality, the madhhab goals through
Mullah Hill and taba cot.
I give you a simple example.
And Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah Allah has two very famous students right? Called the Abu Yusuf and Mohammed Abu Hassan a che Bernie Rahim Allah Tala
type, Abu Hanifa has opinions and they took it from him. But then Abu Yusuf comes and make different opinions to the opinions of
Abu Hanifa he comes across a hadith or he he looks at the issue again and he changes his opinion.
Then later on, this is just this is just you know a terracotta rule at the first level, then comes another then comes another then comes another and another and each one method is growing. Yes, not every person is so influential. For example, if we look at the chef very madhhab The first thing we have is the mama chef, he split his life in two parts elmen Herbal Kadeem, Mata Bucha that he has his old madhhab
and his new madhhab so i Chef A is is changing his math halfway through.
So they'll sometimes say Well, Phil, Kadeem, and in the old math he had this opinion and in the new meta, we had this opinion, then you have certain immense, you know, great scholars who came, maybe were later in time.
And those scholars were so influential that the madhhab almost becomes they become a second imam for the method.
For example, in the method we Sheffy raspberry and Alabama No. Rahim Allah to Allah in the Hanbury madhhab YBNL Tamia Rahim Allah immunostain Tamia comes, and he just lost
a third of the month he's gone.
We brought a different different, Aqua now. The point is the madhhab is a living thing. It's not Imam, Malik Imam, Ahmed. It's them and their students and their students, students and their students, students and these key figures that come along, and then people will criticize you or you took the humbly madhhab. But you took it from Zazzle and stuck in it and zygoma stockinette it has a male ilaqua shekel Islam and Tamia Yanni there's it goes towards Ibn Taymiyyah as preferences in the madhhab me what he preferred.
And you're not traditional, you need to go to hija we need to go to you know, you need to go to for example, the magazine, you need to go to more focus on Kodama and you need to take his books because you've gone and you've just you know, you've so the point is the madhhab is leaving this people coming all the time that are reviewing and there's if Taylor inside the madhhab the medicine next misconception that the med hub is one power inside the madhhab. You have these hundreds, if not 1000s of scholars.
Of course they don't agree on everything. And so you have at last, and often the FT laugh is again brought back to key figures. For example, whose opinion do you take in this? Are you taking the coal of Chevron Islam and Tamia in this issue? Or are you going with the traditional coal in the method that was before that
Which one are you taking?
So this is important quality we know that the madhhab eight doesn't stay stale. In fact any madhhab that stayed stale the men have died.
Hold on, the men have died. Does that mean they were more than former that hip? One is the number of Madonna hip flick here.
Yanni no one can count it except Allah.
Because in the beginning, we're going to cover the history. In the beginning people had people had many scholars they went to, and people will take you from what i was i and people were taking from many different many different scholars. It wasn't like everyone in the world was going to those four imams in their students. They weren't in the beginning, they had many different scholars and those scholars went outside of the madhhab. And some of them or that had kind of stayed semi famous like a bahariya. It you know, hasn't kind of revived them and have have dealt with a variety.
Rahimullah Jimmy but hasn't really. He like by himself. He took that medhelp and he made it a fifth. The point is the Madonna hip were many, many Madang. So if we ask ourselves a question, what made these four muda HIPAA last the test of time?
We said it's not that Gibreel brought them down. What made them last the test of time? Now we're starting to get to the heart of the matter.
The first thing is the heat map that the students did for the metal. The students did such a service to it. They wrote down what they Schiff said.
It said Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah, Allah never wrote a book. It said that he didn't write a book in Aikido in fear, and some of them are attributed
to him and some of them said it's still his students. His students wrote, his students wrote The chef said this is the opinion of our chef. A chef a wrote but again, he didn't write in fifth. He wrote in also he has resolved
but he didn't write in, in film itself. His students came along and they wrote for him, they did Kidman. Also these mega hits, they are in general, they cover they are Sharmila. They cover all of the aspects of film all of the above of some of the scholars have opinions in some topics, but they don't have opinions and others, for example, the early Tabby the great scholars of the early tabulating you don't find them having an opinion in all of the above or felt like can I gather together the opinions even as a hobby like Abdullah Abdullah so Abdullah because you cannot find for them and opinion in every single topic from the topics of fear.
That's the second reason. The third reason is that failure is not one science. We said fit is a collection of sciences we talked about Scholefield collider from here we talked about algebra or we're
looking at the issues that
appear to be similar but in fact are or are different or issues where the same evidence is used and they two different rulings and things like that.
I'll see Lafayette the differences between within the madhhab and outside of the madhhab so now once you've taken you You're like an expert right? This is Sahib on Ephesus share very you are your bloody shattering and then you come and say what now do you do now you need to know the pilaf that happened between Abu Hanifa and a chef very generally because the other Medina there is Kala but it's Danny you can say a lot of it came between Imam Abu Hanifa him Allah to Allah Imam Shafi. So now as in the madhhab, not the Imam but the madhhab. So now you're an expert in the Shafi method, you breathe chef a method B and you know chef, a method like you, you dream it at night. But now you
need to know the issues in which the chef Fairy and the Hanafi are different. So now you can understand the points where at Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah Allah was correct and the method of chef is wrong.
And yes, it happened.
Many, many times chef was adamant Tamia Rahim Allah to Allah takes, and he goes back and he takes, for example, the opinion of Abu Hanifa in a matter, and he says this is the method now. And he imported it into
the handling method. Why all of this is because they're looking for the truth attached to the Quran and the Sunnah. And now you've taken, you know, your meth head, but now you got to go outside Lafayette.
What's the difference between this method and this method and why what caused it and so on.
On top of that, you also, you study, for example, Al fatawa. With Tenzin, you study the issue of fatawa. So you listen to the shapes of the metal because now I've just studied theory, you know, okay, I'm really good. I know or shatter a books I've memorized. Men hatch and I'm done.
Do I know I started reading and much more and I'm just you know, I know she has a madhhab but now there's a problem. I'm not much deadhead Ireland. I'm not a great scholar who's qualified to do HDR. So what do I need to do if I want to be competent in my field? I need to now read the fatawa of the great scholars of Islam.
So now those great scholars What did they give us their fatawa because remember, affect wa isn't really in the topic of a football field here to be honest, it doesn't come under fake really affect WA is implementing fit upon the real world now.
And also let fear control alpha p and all the sciences now implement it for me real life someone comes and says he or she I said to my wife, Tyler Cattolica Tada, your divorce divorce divorce. Yes, yes. Am I divorced? I'm not divorced. Dave, I know the madhhab. I know the coal in the madhhab. I know that. So I know that collide. But now you see the shear when people came to him? What did the chef give the fatwa for it? Okay, what did you see about the sciences? Don't you see that they all go together. Could you imagine? Sometimes people talk about are you allowed to go out of your mouth? Could you imagine generally speaking, if in the first day you started studying, you took the ozone
of Abu Hanifa gremolata Allah and you took the fatawa of Al Qadir Hussein from the Sharia, for example. And you took zygoma stockinette
from the HANA villa in your follow up here. And then you went and took Marcus erode the novom of Gemma Java and the Maliki in the Maliki poet who wrote it.
You are going to be my brother lost
walk I'm not talking about what's Allah has not allowed you're gonna try it, you're gonna be so lost. You're not gonna know where you are. Because this doesn't match with this doesn't matter that it doesn't matter. Yes, they're all taken from the Quran and the Sunnah, no doubt, but they have things that are consistent. So one of the great benefits and blessings of the madhhab is what consistency
not always truly consistent, but you know, as much as you can,
the person talking to you about your soul is taking fit from the same book as you the person talking to you about cooperate for Korea is taking it from the same Imams not Imam because not one Imam, the same ima as you. So you end up with something that is like a consistent curriculum that you can actually follow.
Number problem is I want to highlight a point here we are not until this point talking about our midterms
the regular folk and our we did we talked about studying the math now like Did you ever see um, you studied you know as general Farrakhan like the differences in the opinions and pre Lafayette been Abby, honey rowshare for a nobody, like no one from the regular Muslim study this right? But the people who are students of knowledge is very, very hard. Two things are very hot. And I'm not sure I'm gonna get in trouble for saying it, but I'm not sure it's two things are very, very hot. One is it's very, very hard to do this without madhhab
Yes, were there people who did it without Amantha? Yes, historically Don't.
Don't shoot the messenger me. Historically, there were people and a significant group of people who said we do not need this curriculum. We don't need these books. I'm going to go to the Quran. I'm going to go to the Sunnah, and I'm going to go to the statements of the scholars in general and I'm going to gather this knowledge but the problem is you're going to gather it in what Alfred will refer pa soul circle Kawartha
general Farrakhan fi Lafayette, and you're going to take all of that stuff, and you're gonna find it to be a lot of effort. And in the end, are you really going to produce something better than what is in the form of a hip when you went yourself and you did what they did? You didn't do anything else don't think I went and I took the Sunnah you didn't you just you just went and tried the same thing that they did. And you produce your curriculum Muhammad Tim's curriculum. lamb with heavy Yeah, don't take your mouth up. He took it from the Kitab and the Sunnah. You're gonna find it although if we can in any of them allow him
as up here. So it's very very hard people did it. If it hasn't really supported it, show cannula him allow to add support to the others, sometimes as harbor med hub, even people from the madhhab sometimes any really people from each of the former him who became well, those are the ones that will they get in trouble. They drifted away from the concept of the method. And they said no, you know, I want to this is just gone too far. I want the people to
Go to the Kitab Anderson. But generally speaking, it is hard and it's a lot of effort for very little gain. Is it possible? If one I'm going to get upset, I'm going to upset a whole bunch of other people as well. It has to be possible.
It has to be cut and it has to be possible. Because otherwise the low zoom of that poll is that Allah sent you down the Quran and gave you the Sunnah and it's not enough for you. And that is a colon Bartik we believe that is absolutely false. You cannot say that Allah gave the Quran and the Sunnah and the Quran and the Sunnah Allah and of course Eliana, XML to come. Dena combo is meant to add a commonality, what are the two recommended Islam adding Allahumma unless you say one thing, the only argument you can bring
that people brought this argument by the way, even Raja famously Rahim Allah to Abbot rahamallah, Talia Mirage, but humbly, he wrote a book where he staunchly defended you have to choose one of the form of a
lack in this Salahuddin it has problems with it. And one of the problems is that it has laoise him it has consequences to it. So the reality is the Quran and Sunnah have to be enough. But also the only real argument you could give is if there was each map upon taken from the form of that.
And if there's each map that you're not allowed to go outside and there is not a geologist, and I don't think even the most staunch follower of a madhhab can argue that there is each man on this issue. Philosophy module. There is still if there are scholars from all of them are that hip who went further deeper. So in reality, you don't have la isla wala Hadith wala H ma you don't have an eye and nor do you have a hadith nor do you have a man even Roger proves this. He brings what chaos even origin in his rissalah where he tells you you have to be one of the former their hip, his classes upon the pillar artists.
And you have like you have to read Akira from the pillar art you know you have to read Akira from the karate you have to take a method is clear smile foreign Spears doesn't stand up to any scrutiny whatsoever. Rahim Allah Allah the great Imam, that Imam has been Elijah. It's amazing book Wala. But in reality, the argument is, look, I don't have law either. Walla Walla Agema, I don't have IO Hadees rajma. So it comes to like class and, you know, trying to prove something. And
so in reality, I don't believe it is impossible for a person to have a telco without a method.
But it's extremely hard. And very, very few people did it. Very few people achieved it. And in general, very, very few people achieved this issue of getting tougher. Even those who supported it.
Share on a share Nasser al Vania Rahim Allah Allah, very, you know, we know chef NASA right, his introduction to Sifford Salatin Abbey and how he'll take it from the Kitab in the Sunnah. And a chef Nasser Rahmatullah la came from studying the Hanafi madhhab Rahim Allah to Allah.
I'm not saying that the sheikh would not have achieved what he achieved yet. But the point is that, like, it's not easy to get that to ever call that without, you know, starting off with a curriculum. So what I'm here to say to you is that the med habit one it is a curriculum for studying physic and the sciences connected to fit. That's what it is.
It's not why Gibreel didn't bring it down. It's not my Zoom is not a matter that I don't pray in a Hanafi masjid. And I don't marry a chef or a woman. This is this is this is how that when we hear the history of the mother how it got to this point, wasa in Adonijah, walla Hill, are we there were four Janna art around the Kaaba one Hanafi one Maliki one share very one Hanbury, you're not allowed to go and pray behind the other one.
What is this? What religion is this? I don't know this from Islam.
But to understand the madhhab as a curriculum, which gives you a curriculum that is consistent.
Three things is going to give you a curriculum that is consistent meaning that it's going to match. I opened the book of a soul. Yeah, that's the same as what I found there. The book acquired Yep, that found that there, it's going to match not completely because we have a telephone number, but it's going to match roughly. The second thing is that it is tried and tested. And this is a good argument even Roger makes and this is a this is a true argument. Any aid is tried and tested. And it's you you don't need to go and reinvent the wheel and it's tried and tested many many hundreds of 1000s if not millions of people studied the books graduated got the fifth went on how
it's tried and tested. So it's consistent. And it's tried and tested. And it goes with stages. It's it has gradual progression in it. So I can take a basic book in the madhhab. For the Schaeffer ear, for example, I can start in Photoshop here with metal habitual jar, then I can take.
I can take,
for example, before zoom, I can take a zoo, but after that, I could take a coat and a feast before that, then I could take a zoo, but then I could take under two Salic. And then I can take them in hatch, each one of them gets a little bit more difficult. And there's things I can memorize zuba desert Mazuma, right, I can memorize the poetry for it. And then when I take the soul, I start with a water cloth, shelter a author, I then go to, for example.
I mean, before that, if even if you end up with fetal Burma, we or something like that, and you ended up with Shafi, you know, consistent, it's all matching up for me quite clear, will take the same thing. And then public clouds will just have everything like that. So it's nice and consistent. It's going to take me in stages. And
it's going to be tried and tested.
But just like the madhhab has many, many, many benefits.
Many benefits, just like it has fella it in many, many benefits and it's a great blessing. There are also harms for the person who doesn't use it properly. From among the harms for the person who doesn't use it properly is Al Arab and Al Kitab you are
leaving the Quran and the Sunnah. And by that I mean rejecting even a hadith or turning away from it, or this task soap like extremism, with regard to holding on to the mettle of like we said for Jehovah out we don't pray with you, you can't marry this one. And, you know, you're not allowed to pray in the masjid of this person and this kind of stuff.
This was never present in the time of the four Imams rather it was probably
even 500 600 years after the age of four. So to a certain extent maybe before that there was some way you started to have real tasks
in the madhhab
you started to have real
after the time of the tablet in and then onwards anyway so you can say that
until the middle of the two hundreds after the Hijrah, you didn't really have any tasks have met heavy, like extremism in following them at home. That's why you see the Imams are telling you. It also had Hadith for women's heavy if the height is authentic, it's my madhhab don't take from me. But as we look from where I took, all of these things are coming from the Imams. So until about 250 years after the HLR you really don't have to ask. So what causes the med hub to spread? To be honest, what causes the madhhab to spread in reality is a CRC politics. That's a fact historical fact what causes a med hub to spread is nothing other than politics is not the this method was
stronger. This method was weaker. Remember Buhari Can you imagine if his meta was collected and documented? The Madhava Buhari, some of them call it must have added Hadith. And it's the 50 madhhab Hadith some of them call it like that. But in reality,
the reason a med hat became popular is because of politics. Someone was appointed Chief Judge, for example, Abu Yusuf Rahimullah to add in his time was appointed the chief judge.
Now as the chief judge, he appoints all the other judges. He's appointed Hanafi, jurists, of course. So now the Hanafi madhhab spreads because the those in authority have appointed that senior judges Hanafy and he appoints his Hanafy judges to go with him and then the method spreads. And then what happens to you know, 200 years later, you see the chef, it might have been a country all over the place. What happened? Politics, somebody changed position, he got taken out, someone died, someone else got put in, he chose the chef or a Juris. Now the Emir of that mantra, the Emir of that area tells everyone you have to be careful, we only we only do in cover we only do in Judges judgments
upon the chef or a madhhab. So now the chef image spreads. And that's why if you look at the world today, recently, the art
minion plan relatively recently imposed the Hanafi madhhab upon the courts, right. And so all of the countries that were under Ottoman rule by and large, all of them had the Hanafi madhhab.
When Surah dia
was formed, Saudi Arabia was formed again, the judges were from the Hanbury madhhab.
The Saudis are not that not that much of a fan of this whole Nomad thing, and they're not they're not on that end that comes from the Al Hadith in like, for example, in India, some of them really supported it and stuff like that. But in terms of like, they're not a great fan of it. So they implemented Hanbali fic in the courts. Now, when you go to rudia, try to find someone who is teaching math in Abuja.
If you look from the top to the bottom, you find some guy hiding in the corner. They don't have anybody. Yeah, he's either Mr. Cunningham, Axel, Mr. Serrat.
Catherine macdaddy. And you know, they're teaching that became the med hub in the country. Yes, there are people hamdulillah there are people teaching the Haramain other modalities and things like that, but it's not widespread.
Likewise, you look at the spread of the Maliki madhhab. In Northern Africa, many of those countries were Hanafi. Before that, what happened they realized the Maliki method is much better. Well, they got free copies of the macula No, it's not like that. They don't actually use them water to be honest with you, they don't really refer to a mortar, which is a shame, because I'm water is an amazing book like but they don't really like have a lot of attachment to it. But
it wasn't that they got given out free copies of the mortar or something like that. It's quite simple. The politics changed, the judges changed, the soul, Tom changed and the mannequin madhhab spreads is very rare. I can't say never, but it's very, very rare that a med have spreads, because of its virtue, or because of the quality of the teaching.
Mostly, most of the time it spreads because of politics.
Because somebody got appointed as a judge, some one of the Sultan, he says that you have to follow this madhhab and it becomes taught to the people and becomes widely it becomes widely spread. There could be of course, they qualify that instance. Now every principle has an exception. Yeah, for sure. You find you do find where they live hand, you know, times where a method is spread, because people love the books and they became accustomed to it. And so
you find that, for example, the spread of the Hanbury madhhab not that I'm defending my
that this the spread of the Hanbury madhhab in the mosque in Damascus, in the end, Madras, Germany at the
you know, even pajama more fuckup and Kodama and Abdulghani. And mcrsi. There was no solta. There, there was no Sultan who enforced it. The kadhi was chef he had been at the salon. He was a chef at Ronald altara, the Chief Justice of the region, and the courts were sheltering. But when the chef started teaching a great island with great knowledge, and he started writing books, so people came and learn the method. And he does spread through, like the quality of teaching, sometimes you don't say the quality of the method, but the quality of the teaching and it does spread sometimes.
Now, a lot of
the only Hanbury madhhab a lot of it spread around the world, simply because of for example, a lot of people graduating from Saudi universities, it's not a bad thing, and it's nothing wrong with it. I'm just gonna say historical fact, people graduated from universities, and they,
you know, they came and they when they teach their classes, they teach what they know, they teach what their teacher taught them, they teach the handling method, and so it spread kind of online and things like that. So you do get the method sometimes spread because of teaching quality or availability of teachers. But a lot of time, particularly in the past, it was closely affiliated with politics, and who got appointed and who didn't and who was in favor with the soltara and who didn't. And that's why it even reached a very silly phase. No, honestly, it really did
a really, you know, not praiseworthy phase, where the Sultan, for example, would bring the people to make fun of each other like them allow him to attack each other for entertainment. So they would give you a mess Allah, that is like really, really like, you know, it's extremely hard to understand the reality of it.
You know, they would they would give a mess ELA or they would give something that's hard to understand or something like really impossible to exist. You know, like they I mean, they said like, really silly things. You know, like if
Person breaks window. They had something there and then they did the Google break when they open this thing what is there? Like they brought like just things that don't have any practical it doesn't exist any it doesn't. But they brought it why
we bring no on the right hand sides. We have the noble enough and on the left hand side we have the noble Scheffer. Ariella let's see,
fight it out with each other.
But it wasn't praiseworthy. It wasn't for Allah subhanaw taala and none of the scholars of Islam and the scholars of those Medina who were upon the Quran and the Sunnah didn't praise it. It was his people just arguing, you know, like, gentle and just going back and forward.
Well, Canada, in Santa Barbara, che in Jeddah, many times, people just argument, and then they started to attack each other. And, you know, this is not what Islam was about. And it's not why the metal hub was formed. And that's why this task so it came from around that stage, it came after 250 after the Hijrah when the book started to be written. And of course, when you write an opinion, and then someone across the road writes a different opinion,
you get a little riled up, you start to write a refutation of what they said, right?
Guys, John Haley doesn't know what he's talking about. And you write and you defend yourself, and then the other person comes in, they defend and so, okay, in the beginning, even, you know, 300 400 it's, it's okay, you know, people is a little bit of stubbornness. There's a little bit of like, this is my map, and don't talk to me, but it's not as bad until it gets to the stage where it becomes just
has been if the word is the right, you know, forming sects and sectarianism and partisanship, and to us so and blindness, and just everybody attacking each other, and nobody respecting the Quran and the Sunnah before respecting the Imams.
And this came, you know, particularly,
you can say, it got worse from the fall of Baghdad
end from 656, after the hijab, something like that, this now it really became like worse and worse, and, and worse.
I just want to talk about and I need to take a break, because three o'clock we need to give you guys a break been sick for a long time. I just want to talk about one fighter, or one benefit here.
And this is why do people differ?
Because this is another thing we as Muslims, we really struggle with. If Tila or Alfie laugh Well, if Tila some of them said alkyl F is Mundo handle ft laugh is mad mom, some of them said this, the word killer just means, you know, we didn't see quite the same way. And it's not necessarily blameworthy, but if they laugh, you know, we went
head on. Some of them said this. But in any case,
there are three basic reasons why we have differences of opinion.
The first one is the textual evidence, a difference in the actual evidence that we're going back to
a shelter environment while to Allah He mentioned in dramatic and nobody has mentioned memorized all of the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
And we know if we just look at the Hadith that were narrated, not memorized but narrated. We see that for example, in general, the Imam Abu Hanifa, he was considered to be moping. And it's not correct to say that he was dying for Hadith. I don't believe it's correct. To say that he was weak in Hadith. I think this is not correct. I don't think there's an evidence for it. Rather, he was more Killian. He didn't narrate a lot of Hadith. And he didn't narrate a large volumes and volumes and volumes of Hadith, generally speaking,
how many IDC knew a language in the law but he didn't make narrated lots and lots and lots of Hadith. Some of them were rough on him. They said by you for Hadith, he wasn't strong, but it's not the reason he was mocking me. He didn't have
so many Hadith that he narrated and there's nothing wrong with that.
The second is, for example, Al Imam Malik, we have
Mr. Musharraf very, is considered to be an Imam Malik in himself. If you look at Achmed and Scheffer in Malik. This is considered to be a Silsila as a hobby and Mr. Hadith, any the highest standard of hadith is a Hadith narrated by Muhammad from a chef vary from Malik from NAVAIR from Abdullah and
they say well, the Allahu Anhu they say this is the highest standard of how
idea exists. So they had they were McPhee rune and they had they said Imam Ahmed memorized alpha alpha Hadith, a million Hadith.
And they were they were busy narrating Hadith.
And going back and forward with Hadith, they were busy with it.
Not everybody has all of the Hadith not only Imam Ahmed and not everybody else. That's why a mama chef or a sister Lima Muhammad, you are more knowledgeable about Hadith than me. So when you have a hadith inform me about it, whether it is from Iraq or from Sham telling me about this hadith give me this hadith. If you know a hadith Give it to me, I haven't memorized every single Hadith.
Remember when did Imam Al Bukhari right his side mount Buhari di 256 after the age of all right.
Generally the books of Hadith apart from the MATA
Imam Malik is 190 Whatever, Lima Malik of the Mata, the these main the critical citta all of them are written around this time in the two hundreds, mid to hundreds or the early to mid two hundreds after the HRA and to 40 to 50 whatever they're written at this time. That means that in general, neither did Imam Abu Hanifa nor did Imam Malik nor did really I Shephard amateurs they are really that they are the ones Buhari is narrating from not the ones that they not none of them had, you know Buhari and Muslim and Abu Dhabi witness I attended with him and my general sat looking through it and seeing okay, this is my method from this hadith. They traveled they memorize they took
narrations they reported them, they tried their best.
So this is the first reason you have to laugh. One person knows a hadith one person doesn't. And there's a misconception here which a lot of people have.
And this misconception is, they think that it's impossible to know where your Imam God is to come from.
This is RGB,
like the books of the madhhab are not like this one they are not. Generally you go through and study and fit. You start off at Mohalla to Texas. Somebody just tells you look, you pray like this, put your hands on your chest, put your hands on your navel, whatever it is just your teacher says this is where you put your hands house come tomorrow.
Then you come to morality tedlium Now your teacher says put your hands on your chest because of the hadith of why liberal hijab
someone else co says but if but that's coming later any but the point is someone says put your hands on your chest because of the hadith of wild Ivanhoe now we have
what the Allah and now we have the hokum and we have the Delhi but the delille on its own is not enough. Let me give you a beautiful examples My favorite example
I'm going to tell you my brother's
I believe I'm going to talk about the issue of very controversial issue. I'm going to talk about Rafa led, raising your hands in the prayer. I'm going to give you a daily and now pick pay attention study as Salah young guna Isla Elan EBD que falcoda
Don't they see the camo how it was created?
Is it not a delete is not an hire.
You see, I'm Amara sorry, you brought me a delille. But it's got nothing to do at all with rozalia day.
It's not even it has no connection to it at all. So you brought me a deli and but what's the problem here? I say listen, you asked me for a deli and I gave you a deli. You asked me for an iron Hadith Ah Ma, I brought you an iron. What's your problem?
You see, hold on the problem here is what we call wedge real estate land. How the person uses the dairy.
So how did that disperse? He got the delille. But he used it in the wrong this delille has no connection to the issue of rough lady not for it not against it has no connection to it at all. It could be a delay for something else. But it's not a delille for what we're talking about. So the problem here is the usage of the delille is wrong.
You then come to a stage which we might call Mahalla to to hurry
where you start to
or before that before that maybe before that you come to a stage of
what they sometimes call Mahara or Amma Karana the issue of comparing other people's opinions so now I got deleted. Okay, you with me? I've got Delete. I've got a poll. I've got a delete. I've got a poll. I've got a delete.
I've taken a call in the issue of
reflecting the fact that Abdullah bin Ahmad, it's reported that he left it after he started it.
And that people accompanied him for a year and they never saw him raising his hands fire is deadly.
Deadly, which is correct, right. I used it, you know, we used it with a valid delille for a valid issue. But now there's an issue I need to know. And this comes back to the statement of a emammal who Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah Allah, which He said, may I defer to Malacca or Malik. Now I need to know something else. I need to know what delille is for me and what delille is against me.
Because someone else comes and says I have 17 of the companions who I have had a number of the companions. All of them reported that the prophets had some racist hands. Okay.
But now I've got a problem. I had a delille. I had waitlisted. Lal, right, I used it correctly. But my problem is what my problem is. Now I'm learning the other guys tell you. And maybe I'm not sure if you took about 50 Anyway, but don't worry about it. I'm just giving an example. Now I come to this issue. Maybe his Deleon is actually better than the delete that I had. I had deleted I used it correctly. And that's what Abu Hanifa describes fifth might refer to, and neffs. Knowing your soul, nah, ha ha ha, knowing what is on your side and what's against you. In other words, you cannot be fucky until you know what the other guy has inside the meth lab to begin with. Because we don't want
to like dive in the deep end to early start, you know, inside the madhhab did all of the Scheffer II agree upon this. So there's a call to we go into a rough area. Now are we where are we? Where are we here?
And then later on outside of the month happy? Because perhaps the truth in this issue isn't in the shelter, a meth habit or
even some Messiah and I believe it's true, there are some Messiah, who Allahu Allah, that the truth is not in any of the former day. In other words, it's not a poll on what attended in any of the format. It is rare, but it is true you can get Messiah him, where it's not a cold Martenot in the form of an event, it's a cold shove in the Hanafi said it, but very few many some Shafi said it but very few it's not like it's not considered to be acceptable. And it's not considered to be mainstream in the in the metallic, right. It's not it's not considered to be so it's cold shot. But you look at the evidence and you say I will lie, the Quran, the Sunnah and what they took, and I
look at their wishlisted law and their deli and walleye. I personally believe that the rajai the correct issue in this matter is not a cold market hammered in any single method. It's very rare, extremely rare, but I believe it's not impossible, because we said Gibreel didn't bring down the McGraw Hill, and you're gonna see Mohammed, Allah attic.
Mohammed, do you not believe in each man, of course, but the format are Heba not Mr. quani. If Abu Hanifa and Malik and sheffey and Ahmed agree on something, this is not h Ma. H Ma, is the agreement of the scholars of a particular time.
It's the agreement of scholars of a particular time type Were there other scholars in the time of Abu Hanifa there were we have to also listen Were there other scholars in the time of Imam Muhammad there were we have to also listen, were there other scholars in the time at my Malik so just because these four agree on something, it does not necessarily equate to each man you might say it tougher call muda Hebrew alga, the more malleable alibi, they agreed on it. That's very good. And it's very strong, right? If all four agreed it's very strong. I'm gonna say it's not strong, but I'm saying just because the four of them agreed. It doesn't equate to each mark necessarily, it might be HMR it
might not be h Mark consensus.
Therefore, it might be possible the issue is not even present in it. So you must know Malika Lama Alec and this to some people will lie. It's very sad. They actually strip them madhhab of this.
They make it out that you are you have thought there is no way that you can know the evidence that your shear had.
I'm not saying disrespect your chef. I'm not saying Chef marintec terreal And you don't have any evidence and Chef well I'm I don't know what you brought this from in jailbreak your pocket. Oh, no, it's not disrespecting your chef. But eventually you will learn where did your chef take his opinion from? I don't know how anyone can study a madhhab at advanced level without knowing malleco Mr. Alec, what evidence do you have and what evidence comes against you?
Then you come maybe to the level of taqueria where you yourself start to say you know what it is I inclined towards the view of an Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah Allah and this issue. I,
personally when I looked at what Shafi said what was for him what was against him. And I looked at what Malik said, what was for him once again, remember, I studied the madhhab in detail for several years. I've taken from Hsu, I've listened to what they said, but I start to you know, I start to have a sage have to hurry and I start to be able to start now to maybe
have a preference. Now we're not saying that I'm going to just rewrite in the madhhab. And I'm, you know, humbly meant that we're not sure for the sample Tamia. We're not, you know, we're not going and
changing around the method. Not at all. But it is true that every student will eventually reach a level where they start to make total Jia
in issues. They start to have preferences. That is why why do you believe today, if I go to for example, as an example, if I go to a dark room, for example, or you know, something like that? And if I go and sit on the study the Hanafi madhhab there, for example, for those that teacher, do you think that they scholars don't have to jihad?
I'm not No disrespect? Oh, honestly, do you think that scholars don't have preferences? Do you think that their scholars, the scholars of data alone, didn't choose some matters over others and prefer some opinions in the Metalab over others?
Look at the fatawa she took a deep
freeze is nobody like you cannot argue this. This is like a fact historical fact. You have 30 hat, people will get to a stage where they will prefer some opinions and go away from some opinions. Some of those opinions they go away from will be the opinions of Imam allow from the great Imam and he that the Imam that is the founder of the madhhab how many opinions today in any one madhhab Do we believe actually came from monsoon the pneus of that email? Not as many as you would think I don't put percentage it could be more or less but not as many as you think. And that actually responds a little bit to those people who are like yeah, but my mom was better than your Imam type. No doubt.
I know Ross. We agree with you. Your Imam is better than my Imam but the Messiah is you're not taken from your Imam Ali. You're taking the Tala g hat of the guy who leads the Salah in the masjid. Don't talk to me about Alamanda Azam we'll talk a bit and 70 Malik have fallen for don't tell me this great Imam Hema Allah Subhan Malik he met so many Toby and he was a great, don't tell me this because you're not taking what he said. You're taking this whole history of people.
And some of that history is influenced by the very person who sits in front of you to teach you. Some might say no, because we have in our tradition, you know, we in our tradition, the people who teach them at home to the to the younger people, they are also you know, strict upon the tech lead of their shoe, but still go okay, not not him, not your teacher, your teachers teacher, eventually you're gonna get influences upon the madhhab that didn't come like not from the Imam not from the students of Imam not from someone 200 years ago from someone who lived, maybe still alive today.
And that's not bad. Just don't put the wool over your eyes and say that, you know, I'm putting my footsteps in the feet of the great Imam that he before you, you you couldn't you didn't have a chance. Because for example, if we look at the lives of Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah to Allah before you even put your footsteps where he stood, Abu Yusuf came and took his footsteps away and put them somewhere else. So you don't have the ability to do that. You don't so yes, there's great Imams we love our great Imams, Rahim Allah, Allah, but don't put the wool over your eyes and tell yourself that
I am the shadow of this ima. In reality, you are influenced by all the people who came after that email.
All of them until your teacher who sits in front of you who is going to make what type of jihad. He's going to say to you. This is the Rajender madhhab This is our total Martoma Indiana This is our opinion. This is what we believe to be correct. And overtime, so people grow.
One mistake people have is to believe and I believe it's a mistake and it's controversial.
But I believe it's a mistake is that people believe that the issue is taqlid or HDR
Salah me personally, I'll be honest with you I
Don't believe that that is the work and I believe that that's wrong from it might be theoretically correct, but I believe in reality it doesn't exist. Nobody, for example, was more colored haptic chocolaty and a proper tech lead you know tech lead tech lead and then they woke up one morning and after they had their cornflakes they became much the hit
harder line which
doesn't happen rather they grew day by day mess alibi masala we told you an Imam Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah Tada he went to a madam Salah Rahim Allah and he asked him about seeking knowledge and he told him
to Allah Feeco Leominster Lhasa Masaryk learn three Messiah in every single day well that has it and don't do anything more than that
until he became an Imam and a key that people used to point with their fingers when he would walk past look at the inner
the point is it's a gradual approach right? When you start you do start with tuck leave that lady and you have practically
your teacher says put your hands on your chest submit an outline. You put them on your chest you don't know libre firewall and Muslim well you don't know masala and you don't know Saul and you don't know anything. Your teacher said do it. That's okay. Because what are you doing? You took the person who's most qualified that you could access you didn't go for Imam Malik. Malik. You know in the mortar. You have the hands on the chest but I see you follows the hands on both sides. Which is can you please help me out here chef? Nobody did this. What you did is you went to the most knowledgeable person you had access to who's teaching you fit?
And what did you do? You took fifth from him in the beginning we you just got to salt water massage. You just you understood like Tahara Waldo? Okay types of water. Okay, using water getting rid of HSR Okay, making wudu All right, what do you do with the extra water and all that, like, you just got an idea of what fifth is. And then you start to grow and grow and grow, you start to get Dedede. And all of them are they I don't know what Allah has done upon people to say that the method doesn't give Daddy, I do not know any madhhab which doesn't give Delhi
he's going to bring you delete, he's going to bring you the effect they give the little like they shouted from the rooftops because they want to show that their opinion is stronger. This is my evidence. And I have this and I have this and I have this and I have this.
So in reality, the
you're gonna start getting deleted slowly, then you're going to start realizing that all of your teachers don't have the same opinion. And our beloved chef chef Abdullah has a different opinion from our beloved chef chef Abdul Rahman
and they're both on the same madhhab from the same books, but you realize this actually laugh within the method.
And as you grow you realize that there's a world outside of your method.
And you realize that what Allah He is true, that that the prayer of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Wallah he in Nila oxen Bella, it does not exist in any madhhab completely.
And I think that Chef very has quotes like this Ahmed has quotes like this. There is no single madhhab that gathers all of what the prophets Isom used to do perfectly so you realize there's a world outside your madhhab you know you've been taught you've grown up in the chef a method can be taught just keep away from those Hanafis guys they're dangerous don't take from them stop writing we don't take from our you know, they're intelligent they're using their opinions and reasoning
from us haven't had it don't take it from them don't look at their books but after a while you reach a level where you realize that guys they got some things right that the others got wrong
and you start to say okay,
now I'm now qualified through my teacher my shift to take some of the three Lafayette the differences between them alive or what they call a fifth Alma Cora comparative fifth
and start to learn my Leko Malik, you know, okay, here you are flying the flag of the madhhab
and then you look at all your delille and you now have to look at other persons delete and you have to be honest with yourself for Allah sincerely for Allah
is my deli is stronger or deadly stronger. And sometimes in the beginning you don't feel confident you're like, look, I'm you know, I'm on safe ground here. I'm following great Imams of the past one my feet
on the ground, I'm happy.
So you're okay with it. But as time goes on, you get a little more confident. You grow a little bit, get a little bit more more knowledgeable bit more so more study of Hadith, more study of if and if you're being true to yourself and honest yourself, you will
sometimes have moments where the sooner becomes clearer to you
and a chef or a reported age Mar consensus. Bear in mind who the chef are emit. He met the students of Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah Allah. He was the student of Imam Malik Imam Shafi what he narrated Halley's comet in my Malik and he was the companion of an Imam Ahmed. So when a shelter integrates Ah man, this is the edge mount of the students of Abu Hanifa as well as the edge mount of a shelter himself as well as the edge ma of Malik and Ahmed. He said edge Ma, and the scholars have consensus
and minister ban atlatl sunnah and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the one that the sooner becomes clear to a person it is not allowed for them to leave it for the speech of anyone can in a man can whoever they are
consensus he didn't say this is only for the students only for the teachers each Mar that if the Sunnah is clear to you. This is the key word is the ban and it becomes clear to you haram for you to take anyone else's speech other than the Prophet so I said however, the sooner doesn't become clearer on day one. We agreed to any that the first day you study and you're like, Yeah, I know. You know, like you see some people. You do any little bit of tasks up on issues, you know, I take the opinion of our shift Shala Daniel Rahim Allah Allah on the issue of the niqab.
Like can you until now as you don't know, not the Hadith nor the level of the Hadith, nor do you know the principles of it, nor do you know the feeling of it, nor do you know what the evidence of the other person is. So, you know, before you shout from the rooftops, you need to know you need to grow a bit. But as you grow in your learning of Islam, there are times when the Sunnah becomes clear to you.
And there are times and when the Sunnah becomes clear to you always to Allah subhanaw taala
that you do not leave the word hate for the opinion of people.
And that's progress. It's not something that is like in everything. Some of the scholars assume it I think Rahim Allah to Allah He said 40 years I took a mess Allah I didn't know what the raja in the masala was.
Something like that. He said, 40 something year, 40 years, around 40 years, I took it I had an issue. I had no idea what the Sunnah was in it. I have no idea.
So the reality is, as it becomes clear to you, you will take the Sunnah because your heart is attached to the Sunnah even inside your mouth had before everyone gets angry and says you're telling them to go out the meth lab again. Before that, even within your Med hub, you will see that one great scholar has one opinion one has the other. But for you soon, the sooner becomes clearer to you in yourself. Yeah.
And with this one, you know, it happens. It's natural growth of knowledge that happens
all the time the student becomes more and more and more and more knowledgeable. Will they ever reach the level of the much their head? The first place the scholars disagree whether he had much luck even exists today? The some of them say there is no he absolutely he had in reality. Everyone who gives a fatwa today, even from their honesty had they give it from one of the scholars of the past? Yes.
And they bring like Abu Hanifa said this maya, I believe Abu Hanifa was correct. I believe a chef is correct in this, but they don't you know they don't bring you something
from themselves. But in reality, even if we say the door is open, which is I believe has to be the strongest opinion because in reality, you have no idea. You have new issues, you have calamities that happen where people have to make HDR, so I don't think HDR is closed. But whatever it is, very few people reach the level of an HD head where they don't like Don't tell me what any Imam said, Just give me the IRA. Don't tell me the Tafseer I'm going to make it all for myself. Very few people reach that level.
Some of the scholars said nobody reached that level in our time. I don't think that's quite true, but it's really very, very few people reach that level. But you do start to become more familiar with the evidences and more comfortable and more likely to prefer something over something else.
There's a beautiful book walleye I believe everybody should read it and I'm sure there's some people who would not like me to say this. But will lie really this is if you want to know you always get told off you know, you selfies don't like the Imams
we do you know it's you don't like the four Imams Let me quote you from referral Milan who wrote
this book referral Madame YBNL Tamia Rahim Allah.
He wrote it to defend the 40 ma
It's a book defending the 40 maps. It's called a rough road map.
He said, Let it be known that there is no one from the Imams who have been accepted by the Ummah, meaning the great Imams of Islam, Abu Hanifa Malik Shafi, and
whoever deliberately intended to going into the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and anything from his sunnah large or small. They were without doubt agreed upon the obligation of following the messenger. And the fact that every one of the people has some of their statements accepted and others rejected except the messenger of allah sallallahu. It wasn't. However, if an opinion of one of them is found, while there's an authentic hadith which opposes it, there must be a reason why they left that hadith. Yes.
Let me is defending it. He's saying if you saw there was a hadith, an authentic hadith. And you saw Abu Hanifa Rahim Allah to Allah give a fatwa which opposes a hadith in Sahih al Bukhari know that there has to be a reason why the Imam did it. No way Did he do it to oppose the some, no chance he has to have had a setup a reason why he did it. There has to be a reason because not one of those Imams ever deliberately intended to oppose the Sunnah, in anything large or small. He's writing this book to defend the Imams when the people say that the Imams went against the Sunnah the Imam opposed the Hadith. He didn't.
But there's an important issue here.
Very important issue.
So for example, it might be the Imam never got the Hadith. It might be that the Hadith had a weak chain when it reached him and an authentic chain when it reached somebody else.
Or it might be that the Imam didn't remember the Hadith at the time it happened to Erma Radi Allahu Allah, that sometimes he forgot to Hadith there are examples in the Sunnah of Omar, forgetting a hadith that was said to him. And then later he is reminded by one of the Sahaba and he takes it. So in any case, it's important to note something very important, even though the Imam is excused.
Even though the Imam is excused, the Imam gets one reward. Even if he gets it wrong. He gets one reward. It doesn't mean that we are all excused with the Imam. Does that make sense? I mean, this might mean people this might be difficult but try to try to follow me on this there Imam is Marvel excused? Why? Because he's, he's much the head. He's deserving of HD hat. And then which Ted either Asaba if he gets it, right, fella who agilon He gets to rewards what either after further, why don't why he gets one reward. So the Imam either got three rewards for getting it right or one reward for getting it wrong. You You're Abdullah, come, you know, call it 1300 years, 1300 50 years later.
And the sooner becomes clearer to you in a matter and you say no, no, because if I follow remember, Malik, I'm gonna get one reward. The one reward is for him not for you.
It's for him that he tried his best with what he had and he came to the truth and you must also try your best with what you have. You must also you only try your best so you also cannot hide behind that shield and say this shelter is an HMO nurse administer Burnett level sooner.
I was sooner to know besides LM lumea calm level and yet I had a cold I had him in a nurse Cova shelter intervention to you earlier. Second reason why it scholars differ. I'm trying for the second reason why the Scholars differ they differ because of a lot of RVM so now,
Imam Malik cotton is
an Imam Ahmed Cortes and iron
and the two of them differ about it's an ayah there's no issue of authenticity. There's no issue of the Hadith didn't reach them. They both quote the iron and they differ about it. For example, we're in control mandala Oh ALLAH Sephora and Ulta. I had to mean come in Allah. Allah mesto Nisa param tecido man for to Mimosa item for us certainly sell
if you have touched a woman and you don't find water provide to mama status.
the gym Hall which here are the HANA Thea amalickiah and the Hanabi on one side
and on the other side remember chef a Rahim Allah Allah him alone Jimmy both of them Porter if both of them say my evidence is the if one of them says that touching the hand of a woman or touching
a woman record breaks your will do and the other side doesn't. Both of them quote the same is no chance they didn't memorize the I didn't know they all memorize the I know chance they didn't remember that I
Are they both quoted that I was the problem here and look at the
Arabic language the word lamps in the Arabic language can mean to touch and it can mean marital intimacy.
and both meanings are found in the Quran.
So the Quran uses the word lamps for both. So now you can't say okay Arabic but the Quran only uses it for this more the Quran uses it for to mean marital intimacy. And the Quran also uses the same word to mean touching.
So now the basic difference there are other reasons they're supporting evidences, they're not just mentioning one either. But here the real difference is a local Albion. The Arabic language came with both meanings.
Well, Motorola car to the Uttara bus Navi and fusi hinda selasa three Kuru, the word call came in the Arabic language meaning and hate, meaning menstruation, and the word power came in the Arabic language meaning a total meaning purification. So the scholars differed. among themselves. Both of them quoted the if one of them said Kuru means three periods of purity. And one of them said three menstrual periods because the word count comes with both meanings in the Arabic language.
So the point is this. And then the third reason they differ is because of the Oso.
The third reason they do they differ is because of also
that they have different also. For example, as I said, I'm not
the world's greatest expert in the soul of the acna, for example, but one of the things we see a lot in their books of filth, from the point of view of pursuit, is the issue of what happens when the raw we the narrator of a hadith doesn't act upon the Hadith that he narrated.
An array Tagalog and out of all the alohar in her mouth, someone else narrates a hadith. But then his companions narrate that Abdullah ibn Ahmad did not practice this hadith himself. He narrated it, but he didn't practice it.
What I saw and I'm not forgive me for the presence here, we're expecting the math happy and I'm not an expert. But as we saw, that, generally speaking from the soul of that enough in this issue is that they will go with the action of the Rahway rather than the Hadith which is narrated Yanni, they will take that the action of Abdullah bin Omar here supersedes his statement, which is a sensible position and it's it doesn't. And it's well it's not crazy to say that someone narrated a hadith. And then later on, he didn't do what he narrated.
And so we follow what he did rather than what he said. I'm sure it's more complicated than that. I'm sure there's a trade off on it. I'm sure there's many books have also written about it, but just a simple point. Other scholars they said, No, he might have forgotten the Hadith, he might have had a reason why he didn't implement it like some sickness, it might be the narrations about him leaving in a week. So no, we don't really mind if the Rawi leaves the Hadith. To us. It only matters the hadith is authentic. We're not interested whether the narrator left it or didn't leave it and others other than Abdullah bin Ahmad did it as well. So we're not you know, from our point of view our
console, we are not really concerned if a narrator stops practicing the Hadith generate
the shaft area
in the issue of set to the right,
stop stopping the things that lead to haram. The Sharia they said generally speaking to Shafi Rasul that unless the RIA is non salsa, it specifically mentioned that it's a means to the haram. We don't prohibited
we don't prohibit it. We don't prohibit something, because I personally think it's dangerous. We only prohibit it. If the danger is monsoons it's specifically mentioned that there is a danger in it.
Any very I hear that the path that leads to the danger, we are not going to accept this as being dangerous or prohibited unless the danger you're scared of is it is the very here is non suicide. It's specifically mentioned in the text.
Again, generally speaking, we're not you know, we're not taking all fifth today, you know, but just as an idea, as I said know
if it is understood
If we come together and we see that there is a danger in something and it's leading to haram, we consider it to be haram even if that specific Haram is not mentioned in the in the text.
For in general here
the issue there's a there's a series of books that you take quarter three and four. So how do you apply who solely principles to philcare rulings? How do you take these principles and apply them to rulings? There's a science quarter for each and for adults also applying the fundamental principles to the subsidiary matters. And he taking the matter, like, for example, the issue of whoodle and applying the soul of the madhhab to that issue. It's called Tarija for IRAs.
So here we understood that these are the reasons why people differ. And I would highly recommend the book, Rafi mme, so you will have, you know, proper respect for the scholars of Islam, and you understand why those scholars differed with each other. And you understand, that doesn't mean what's the misconception? It doesn't mean that both of them are right.
There are two types of ft laugh if Tila fu tena war, and st laugh Autobot St. Laugh eternal word, it means two scholars differed, but their opinions are not contradictory.
One scholar and another scholar differed about something, but their opinions don't clash with each other.
For example, they said you can do this or do that.
It's permissible for this or that or they said this is preferred, but this is allowed. But what do you do in this tobogganing, they really clashed with each other they want said hello once and haram.
In this case, one of them is right. And the other one has to be wrong. But ultimately, as we said, as we grow in knowledge for Sonia becomes clear to us.
So we, our allegiance is to Allah, and His Messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and not to that particular madhhab, or that particular share, or the particular school that taught me this particular matter.
I don't know about you, but I'm at the break right now. So I think we should, I think we're like, we should take a break. We were supposed to take a break, like an hour ago. But
we'll like I told you, I think we took like 26 hours between this topic.
So I'm not going to give you 26 hours, don't worry, we supposed to finish by ourselves. I will do my best in the break to try to like sort things out and try to you know, highlight some things and whatever. But in shall everyone's listening to the general message, right? You're getting the general message, the role of the med hub. What we do need to talk about is the role of the med hub for the hour. That's going to come after the break. How do we How does the regular Muslim who is not studying fake at all? To what extent are they taken from the madhhab or not? That also has to be it has to be discussed. How the Allahu Allah wa salatu salam ala Nabina Muhammad while he was off the
when he will take a break for call it 10 minutes and chalet in 10 minutes stretch your legs
what we can do is we are ready to replace the battery and this is the second set of lighter so I have a new battery in this one.
if we can ask all of the brothers to come back inshallah we're going to resume our discussion with Ninja heeta.
Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Abdullah he was a Saudi Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge mine and Mbak so inshallah Allah this is how the program is going to go for the next 45 minutes inshallah we're going to finish our topic in the next I mean Adonis 430, I believe here and the salah will be 445 so we might go between the Sudan and the economy a little bit but we're going to Inshallah, finish our topic by then be delighted
What we will then do is break for ISIL prayer. And after Assad, we will have q&a. Now my encouragement to the brothers and sisters would be where possible, I have no problem with the brothers coming to ask questions and privately no issues, but I just feel like sometimes your questions are so good and you can benefit everybody. So, you know, bring your questions on paper. And after answer we'll answer and then whatever we don't answer on paper, we should have a little time just to pass by some of the brothers who had some questions. So let's just talk a little bit about the stages of development of the MME.
In the beginning, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was the only teacher. There was no other teacher except him sallallahu alayhi wasallam and then those that he appointed as teachers like why the wind Jebel or the Allah Huang, and in the end of this at this time, at the time of prophethood, it's a time of revelation right? There is no, almost no fklf
Almost no, you can't say Nan, sometimes the Sahaba were away sometimes. But there is almost no serious difference of opinion. Why is that? Because any difference of opinion that becomes serious, where they're going to go back to back to the Prophet sallallahu it was sent during his life or messenger of ALLAH, so and so did this and so and so did that which one of them is right? So, the differences of opinion among the Sahaba were extremely, extremely small.
There is another difference another reason why the differences were so small
and this is that in reality, the the Muslim nation was quite small, and the people in it were limited in number.
In this time, how was Fichte arrived? How did we derive FIQ from the Quran and the Sunnah, from
a sunnah to Kalia will fairly clearly Yeah, the Sunnah, that the prophets i Some said, the Sunnah of the Prophet sighs and did and the sooner that he approved of
disputes and questions were bought before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he answered the questions and he settled the disputes in terms of Fick, where did fit flourish more Mecca or Medina, in Medina, and that is because in Makkah, it was primarily the time of Thomas Hayhoe card, correcting people's beliefs. And then it went into a stage where along with the beliefs there was also the aspects of fear, and
rulings and so on.
Did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teach fic oral Zulu folk? No doubt he did. But he didn't teach it in a separate lesson. He didn't come and say
as hobby, my dear companions. Today I'm going to teach you solfa rather than profit size and taught us also and color. For example, He taught us the car ADA la Tarawera Tierra. They should be neither harm nor should harm be reciprocated.
But there were no dedicated Fick lessons or dedicated or soul or collide. Rather, the prophet sighs I'm taught according to the revelation that Allah subhanaw taala
and from the statements of the prophets I said later on the scholars extracted principles that are used
to our island I've said attain 30 can be added, or add now Homer any way you get rid of the big evil by taking the smaller one these can these things came from what the prophet sighs him said.
And this was the best of all of the times in which vehicles taught.
And everybody agrees nobody disagrees that the best time to study Fick was from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is no there is no disagreement on that from anybody, that the best time that you could have ever studied filth was from the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But there is a benefit I want to take from this, that the goal in film is not general Occoquan.
But the goal in FIQ is my refer to Roger will actually be
what I'm going to be that's the goal. So the goal in film by the date of the Sahaba the goal in film is not to gather everyone's different opinion. I know the opinion of this Imam and this Imam and the chef
In the student, and I know all of the different, that's not the goal. The goal is to know what is correct. And the goal is to act upon it. And we're going to come back to that point when we talk about the regular person, because our regular people that are meeting us, they're not studying the books of the method. Typically, maybe maybe you teach material, we should join the material.
axial Mazzara to teach you something, a method, but it's not common, right? Generally, in the masjid, the teacher just teaches people what to do, right? It teaches this how you pray, everyone, we're going to learn how to make whoodle. He doesn't, you know, quote, the books and teach the books like that. It just teaches the people in this is the teacher.
When our chef, for example, stands in the masjid and says my brother's, I'm going to show you how to make water. And he shows how to make Who
is he wrong, because he didn't open metal abishola and start or Safina to nurjahan Start reading from it. But he's not wrong. Because the goal here is my I refer to Raji in the Hanafi, madhhab, that you will see the emphasis upon the madhhab. Among the regular people. I don't mean that it's not common in the others. But it's it's, you see a lot of like, you know, emphasis on really learning the madhhab, you know, and trying to take the regular person, at least into the basics of FIP, from the madhhab.
And it's true in other places as well. Certain sheffey places, countries where they really try to like, but generally speaking, whatever it is, that regular person is not memorizing the mitten, nor are they studying it in detail. They are just the, the teacher is a qualified person. And the teacher shows them how to pray, how to fast, what to do, and so on. And that's where they're taking their faith from. And there's nothing wrong with that.
From the evidence that this is what the Sahaba or the Allahu Anhu did.
And this is what happened in the time the qualifier rushes in, and all the way up until maybe 250 years after the hatred. That's what people did. So is nothing at all wrong with a teacher, teaching people according to that teacher's knowledge. Now he comes to question should that teacher stick to his method? In reality, that's the teachers choice, the teacher is qualified. If the teacher feels that the best way is to take the people through the method. And if the teacher feel and then make Theurgy, make preferences and select opinions, or if the teacher feels that it's best for the teacher to gather their personal, you know, way of doing things. At the end of the day. That's why
you have qualified teachers there is no there should not be any issue with this. This leads us to a question before two second stage, which is an empty sample in a meta. Someone says I am Mohamed Taman Hanbury
Is it allowed?
Here hear we differentiate between two types of anticip
we differentiate between mudgil Ruddle Intisar. Just a taking the name I studied humbly books my teacher was humbly teacher. And now I've taken that name as a you know, as something to show that I had studied from that meta, but maybe when I write a book, people can understand my opinions in light of madhhab you know, like it's nice when you're reading that you know, your your typical book of Hadith Bullroarer for example, and Imam and half of the hijab shattering for him, I'm allowed to add no problem and it tells me you know, that's why he left that hadith tells me that's that's the and that's okay. And he there's nothing wrong with that. But where does NT SAP go wrong? Where does
it go wrong to see for someone to say that I am. Whatever Maliki or whatever. The first is a TAS sub deliver,
like extremism and partisanship when following the Imam. The second is a Chicago filament. Yep, back on the same street. So should be in sha Allah. If you have a check of it. It should be on the exact same stream. So we didn't break anything. Guys. We didn't add anything. You haven't missed anything. If you're on the live stream. You haven't missed anything at all. So we were talking about when does mdsap become haram? We said to us up
breaking people up in the masjid, insulting the other muda hip
taken away from their honor and their right.
Or seeking superiority, superiority over other people because of I must have been 30
This is something that is not praiseworthy. But if a person has into South America, and they are not blindly following the Imam, as we call to the Russia phase, each mount issue, they are not insulting other people. They're not breaking up among the Muslims. They're not seeking superiority and to look down on other people. And there is nothing there is no issue with this intercept. It doesn't hurt anybody.
The question which might be perhaps more,
I don't know if we could say the question that is perhaps more important, or the question that is perhaps more
it's perhaps the question that needs to be asked is, does this empty SAP really benefit the regular Muslim? I mean, does it mean anything? Okay, he comes to Davey says, My name is, for example, my name is Abdullah Shafi. I say Abdullah, masha Allah, please tell me where did you research? Or where did you reach in the books of the chef Raymond? Sous Chef, and I never took anything I slides. I just want to be with the chef very far. We'll see you at the nursing and yes, it's a Farah is my I took my took the advice of the scholars and I just, I just want to be shared very,
I would say, and this is just my personal opinion, I would suggest to you that this entire sub, it really doesn't have any meaning to it.
In reality, it doesn't actually mean any real thing to be honest with you.
Like, what does it mean? Like the person doesn't have to assume he's not extreme. He's not insulting other people. He's not seeking to look down on them. He just a regular guy. I just come to the masjid and pray. Yeah, he's going to go against his madhhab 200 times in a week. Because he doesn't he hasn't studied it. He doesn't know the madhhab the limits of the madhhab he's just in reality, all he can do is to take the opinions of his teacher and if his teachers don't want to mess up he'll be stored gentleman's happen if his teacher is a bit more relaxed, he'll be relaxed, but he's a regular guy. So there's nothing wrong with this into Saturday. It doesn't hurt you anything, but it
also doesn't benefit the regular person in a in a real way. It's nothing wrong might but it doesn't really bring them something that actually has
