One common mistake that a lot of people do when they ask questions as they come to you with so and so told me this, or I heard from so and so this or a speaker in my location said this, if you come to somebody else with this sort of thing in a public forum, okay, that puts us in a really awkward situation, because then you know what's going to happen? We don't know you don't have a relationship with you. So if I give an answer, what are you going to do with it, you're going to run back to that shape or that speaker and tell him what I said. And then he's gonna look me up on YouTube and find my mistakes, and then put me on blast on a reputation video and come on, right. So a lot of people

00:00:32 --> 00:00:59

don't take as much care as they should, in these sorts of things. You know, you need to guard there's some things that need to be public and some things that need to be private. And you know, especially even with students of knowledge, and scholars and stuff like that, you need to not tempt them and their egos, okay, because it's embarrassing. If you try to, you're basically trying to contradict the sheikh, you're basically trying to contradict the person that you heard something from. So it's not appropriate necessarily to go in public and to ask, you know, like, anybody who knows you and knows where you're from, probably, maybe they can put two and two together for who

00:00:59 --> 00:01:29

you're talking about. And yeah, and we're not I've had people even like in in private conversations and WhatsApp conversations, you know, taking screenshots and Well, you said this, and then the other guys, you know, refuting, he doesn't understand the Hadith. And he doesn't know what I'm talking about that conversation. Okay, that's just a trap for the ego. And you don't do that. And you don't, you know, the average person has to not set up scholars and students of knowledge like that it's very easy to turn people against each other. And if we were all saints, then maybe that wouldn't be the case. But we're not. We have egos, you know, two that we struggle with. And so just you probably

00:01:29 --> 00:02:00

shouldn't do that. Right? The general idea about following certain, you know, practices as long as they are part of the Sunnah within the location that you're in, yes, that's good. And you need to weigh the harms and the benefits of not doing that thing. And it's well known. You know, Achmed Rahim Allah, who was of the opinion that you don't recite the best Mullah out loud in sort of Fatiha if he travelled in the lands where they follow the chef A's opinion that you do have to recite the best manner out loud or sort of Fatiha, then he would change it. And he would do what they do, right? Because why? Because he didn't want to cause problems. They don't want to cause fitna and it

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

was understood among the people this one particular way. And he didn't want to stick out unnecessarily or cause drama, right? If only we were like that, we don't want to cause drama, why you want to cause drama, okay, if you're a student, or knowledge or scholar, and you want to educate people, that there's more than one way to do things, then that's great, do that and the machine, but if you're the average person, and you want to take a book of Hadith, and you want to go teach other people that there's other ways of doing things, they probably aren't gonna listen to you first of all, because maybe they don't know you like that or trust you like that. And second of all, is it

00:02:29 --> 00:03:00

just causing more drama than is necessary? Sometimes it is, right. So these are things that, you know, people if they want to be educated, they have to express that they want to be educated, right? That's a fundamental sort of pillar of pedagogy can't teach someone who doesn't want to learn. And if you're not a teacher, then maybe you're not the right person to teach. So you need to think about these things when you try to expose people even though companions. You know, when it came to the Hadith from the Prophet salallahu, salam, they knew they didn't relay every single Hadith that they knew, or sometimes they delayed, like Abu Hurayrah until his deathbed or who they thought until his

00:03:00 --> 00:03:28

death, but there were certain things that you know, they didn't necessarily tell all all the time, and we don't have this sort of balcony like esoteric or their secrets out there that nobody knows and like, you know, that are really essential to your salvation or the dean or whatever. Well, that's not what we're saying. Okay, but what we are saying is like the Hadith of the Prophet, so I said, I'm talking to the people to their level of knowledge to what they know what they know, what's a hadith of prophesy salaam speak to the people with what they know, because if you don't, then problems might might come from that
