al Karim while early he will be here Jemaine My dear brothers and sisters As Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
US Allahu Allah, Allah him on Abu Laotian Karim, I ask Allah subhanaw taala that the most high The Lord of the Throne
that he blesses us in this house of Allah subhanho wa Taala
and I want to mention a hadith
and it is a very beautiful Hadith which should, every time we come to the masjid, we should try to remember this hadith.
And it is the narration of Hadith Narrated by Abu Huraira Torah the Allahu Allah.
Does anyone know anything about Abu Hurayrah Radi Allahu Anhu does anybody know anything about this great companion?
Any information regarding Abu Huraira Have You Ever Have you heard of Abu Hurayrah before? Can anybody tell me anything about Abu Hurayrah anything?
I will headline
Yeah, sorry. I will hear so. Hooray. Hooray. Ira is a very small cat. He is the father of the kitten. That's the meaning of Abu Hurayrah mashallah, very good. Anything else concerning Abu Huraira
his real name is Abdul Rahman Hypno soccer dosing. Very good
so far, and he was so phenom through the phone the poor people and used to reside at the back of the master of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam. So what year did he embrace Islam? Anybody know?
embraced Islam in the seventh year of the hijra, the year number seven. He spent, let's say four years with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam only only four years. And in that time, he memorized or narrated more a hadith than any other companion, directly from the Prophet alayhi salatu salam. This hadith I'm going to mention to you is one of the narrations one of the Hadith of the Prophet of Abu Hurayrah. Delano
said you are in to remember this hadith every time you come to the masjid because when we come to the masjid, we are coming to remember Allah subhanaw taala to listen to the ayat to listen to the verses of Allah subhanaw taala
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said much Tama call Moon Phoebe 10 Min beauty learn
that no people who gather inside one of the houses of Allah yet ruler Kitab Allah, that they recite the book of Allah waited hours to know who female they know and that they study the words of Allah subhanaw taala between themselves after fajr every day here of the Fajr there are some brothers, the after selected fajita they get in a small circle, and each one of them they read one year from the Quran.
At the moment they are currently in Surah two unis.
Surah to Eunice
and if they carry this on, approximately depending on the amount of brothers
they may finish just about two pages a day. So within six months, within six months Charlotte Allah without any great effort on their behalf except that they come to the masjid they'll complete the Quran isn't Allah
so the Hadith continues with Adara Sona rasuna Aviva Vedanta, they study the Quran amongst themselves in learners Allah to Allah He moves to Kenya, except that ALLAH subhanaw taala will send down upon them Sakina tranquility and peace
was your totem or Rama and that also cannot add I will place mercy upon them
will have a tomato mother and the mother it will cover them
well the Quran Allah subhanaw taala human and that Allah azza wa jal will mention these individuals
this hadith deserves a time to be thought about to ponder over to think about
we come to the house of Allah subhanaw taala that whoever prays the Jamara salatu Aisha knew who Salah Ness for laying it out as though they prayed half the night in prayer.
And then when they come for Salah turn fragile.
It is as though that they prayed the whole night
aid in prayer.
So for those people who are, for whatever reason, maybe they don't pray pm will lead or they don't pray very often. But they pray Salah to gemera Salah to Asia, in JAMA, and they pray Salat al Fajr in JAMA, they will get the reward of standing in the night in prayer.
And this is why we find that the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he said, as one of the companions said, Canon, the view sallallahu alayhi wa sallam you had would fail, he would love to be optimistic.
He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would always love to think about the good things, to be positive, not to be negative, not to be pessimistic about anything.
If something happened occurred, which may be on the apparent maybe a war is not looking good,
you'd find that the Prophet Ellison will be optimistic about that. And similarly, we should be as well. You see something you see here on the SHA, Allah, Chiron, even if a person will see will be Murghab that the person was afflicted with a disease or an illness is not a time What did you do mother felt, make a stick or maybe you've been very bad in your life. The part of the person not only is ill, they're sick,
where they feel very bad
for that person, what did the Prophet lsmw Teach us? layabouts for whom? Insha Allah, don't worry about it. It says, maybe a cleansing for you and expiation of your sins.
When you meet the person you say up here, Good, glad tidings for you. This is a test from Allah subhanaw taala no time for you to feel bad or an odd time for you to lose hope, but to have good hopes and good thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala. And this is found in the Hadith on kotse.
In which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he narrated that Allah subhanaw taala said in the meaning I am as my servant thinks of me
that Allah subhanaw taala is with you, as you think of him
following his own newbie, Maya or Maya, what he wants to be clear on. So let him think good about me.
Whatever happens, do you have good thoughts? Good thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in line with the Quran because the Quran, the book of Allah subhanaw taala is very clear in distinguishing between us herbal Jana was horrible, not the people of the Paradise and the people of the fire. There's a clear distinction between the two.
The actions that will lead the people to the Paradise and the actions that caused the people to enter into the fire.
Myrcella comfy sofa will cause you to be in the fire. What did they reply? The we weren't from those who established the prayer.
The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam also, with this made it very clear to us and gave us good hope.
With the Quran as we know that the Prophet salallahu alayhi salam told us that Allah azza wa jal is mercy precedes his anger.
It comes full before his anger Subhana.
So we find many Hadith, in which the Prophet alayhi salam said to us told us that if you do this action, if you do this one thing, it can be a reason for you entering into the paradise. If you do this one thing, you can beautify your paradise.
We know in the sound Hadith, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said in the meaning that for every one of you
that there was a place that was created an agenda for you, and created a place created in the north that may be your abode as well. One in the Jannah one in the north that exist right now.
You can beautify your place in the Jannah. By doing what?
What can you do to beautify your Jana?
Even though it is something which that the eye has never seen, the ear has never heard, and no heart can imagine. But yet,
but yet, you can beautify that place.
By doing what?
The Prophet sallallahu wasallam when he met Ibrahim Ali said, on the Mirage
on the journey up into the heavens.
The Ibrahim alayhi salam informed the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that by us saying Subhanallah we have the Subhan Allah Allah Allah them
That is a planting of a tree in New Paradise by that statement alone Subhanallah we 100 Subhan Allah Allah Allah
you beautify your Jana
that's one thing. Another thing that you can do
is that the Prophet alayhi wa sallam said in the sound Hadith that whoever prays if not Ashura, tilaka whoever prays 12 For Makkah, every day that Allah subhanaw taala will build for that person a palace in the Paradise
what is that action? Or what are those like at the two before Salado fragile for before salata vol two and two, and then again two, after salata vol, two after Salatin, Maghrib and two after Salah technischer, the person
who hears that, so you're telling me,
added to my five daily prayers 1717, I have to add another 12 to that.
Sometimes when the person puts that in front of themselves, another 12 is a struggle for me to pray them my five, for me, for my fragile for her awesome micromanagers. That's a struggle for me. And now you're telling me to add another set of rockhard it's too much.
If you ask any individual
because sometimes when that person thinks about their prayers, they think about praying it all in one go. I think it's one that's too much. It's 29 rocket out every day 29 rocket out every day.
distribute them in the correct times
because when the person is praying their five, and praying those five alone doesn't associate any other Ottawa tip with it, it can become heavy for them. Because the person is constantly on the edge
of offering those Salawat constantly on the edge.
And they are the most important. However, when a person adds those 12 raka add those five become very light and very easy.
No person has prayed those five daily prayers along with that our tip and at the end of the day says
Wow, that was so much Salah you look back on it. You said you know what?
There was no difficulty in that SubhanAllah.
So what is the understanding the wisdom that we can take from this?
Do you not find yourself in the month of Ramadan?
Fasting 29 or 30 days completely. And at the end of the month, you say, Allahu Akbar.
However, when you try to force the rest of the month, or the rest of the year, for example, it was a bit difficult. Do you find it so much easier in Ramadan? It is coming every night to preach what are we establishing so Medaka?
Somehow you get through that and you do them?
So what is the secret? What's the secret?
What is the secret and when I'm offering certain a bar that certain acts of worship suddenly suddenly becomes easier and light and you know Lambchop Coffea is no difficulty in that. The Spirit Wallah who Adam the secret is, is that the more you worship Allah subhanaw taala
the easier becomes
sometimes we think the more I do, the more difficult it becomes. However, a bar does not like that. worships not like that.
Because when you go close to Allah azza wa jal, Allah subhanaw taala makes things easier for you.
The we shouldn't compare. We shouldn't compare whatever we give an offer to Allah azza wa jal to worldly things.
We don't seek a world a worldly reward from this.
We seek a special reward and Allah subhanaw taala makes things easy for them
averse that so many people have us or somebody as we know, woman yet to color her gender who Maharajah and Whoever fears Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will make a way for them.
So a person is feeling the five daily prayers is difficult.
But they ask Allah subhanaw taala for increase in Taqwa. Oh Allah increase me in God consciousness that I fear Allah subhanaw taala I want to keep the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala away far away from me by establishing the alignment by establishing the commands.
If a person does this is sincere and
then Allah subhanaw taala will make a way
afford them and things suddenly become easier.
So praying those extra raka art every day, Allah subhanaw taala will build a palace for you in the Jana.
This is something that all of us inshallah are able to do. As well as saying Subhan Allah will be handy Subhan Allah and Allah
you can beautify your Jannah
similarly, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
I am doing some research for this topic about actions that will lead us to the paradise more than 40 different actions
40 different actions that inshallah to Allah by doing that action will help you and lead you to the agenda.
This is why when the companions of the Allahu and when they with with the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam, whatever they heard they preserved and they implemented immediately.
Elmo will common knowledge and action.
Not not, for example, Elmo
and Tawakkol doesn't work like this not knowledge and then stop is knowledge and action, knowledge and action, knowledge and action.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that Allah subhanaw taala
Lilla hit is the ultimate is a Nessman button Allah subhanaw taala has 99 names and the different rewired, some say we are in La vida, but 99
Man I saw her the huddle Jana
the translation is whoever remembers them or whoever memorizes them will enter the Jannah will enter the paradise. So then the question is
what is Saha? What does that mean?
What is the true meaning of that word? Is it simply to remember that what is remembering the mean? Was there Oh lemma or hammer Mala and explaining this?
They say that there are three things
three things. The first one is helpful is to memorize them.
Now when we say Allah azza wa jal has 99 names. It doesn't mean that Allah subhanaw taala only has 99. Because, Mr. Pereira if you go through the Quran, and through the sooner you will find that there are more actually than 99.
And the scholars went to great efforts to try and compile lists based upon authentic
sources other than the Quran.
So, firstly is to memorize them.
Secondly, is that you know the meaning that you know what it means.
So, when you say a result
it has a different meaning from a man
which has a different meaning from a Samir
al bothies, Aileen
and Mateen all of these names have individual meanings.
And all of these names belong to Allahu Allah subhanho wa taala.
So in your DUA, you know what it means, you will use the special name for the needs that you have.
You have a particular need.
Let's say for example, you feel as though you have committed sins.
You have done some wrong
so you call upon Allah subhanaw taala yah Rahman. Rahim, your most Merciful, the Most Benevolent
and you call upon the new use these names
Well, Allah Hill Ismail hasna, further Obeah
and Allah subhanaw taala has the most beautiful names. So call upon Allah azza wa jal using those names
when you think that you're in need of some sustenance
and not just to restrict the name, they're going to mention to you that because you need an increase in your wealth or some sustenance, because a result is much more than that.
Because Allah subhanaw taala can give to you so many things and from that is hedaya.
Allah subhanaw taala sustains you with hedaya guidance
But you need something you have some monetary deficiency. So you say you're
the one who provides the old provider, the old Sustainer. So you know the meaning of that name. You memorize the name.
You know the meaning of the name. Secondly, and thirdly, that you act upon it, because the first two are knowledge. And we said earlier, knowledge action.
So the third one is action. So that is that when you're calling upon Allah subhanaw taala either your Rahman AR Rahim, oh, the Most Merciful, the Most Beneficent, you recognize you're the new year to work.
You recognize that you are a sinner that you have done wrong, and that you will try your best not to go back to those sins.
So when the Prophet alayhi salam said that Allah azza wa jal has 99 names or 100 minus one Manasa da Jana, it now becomes, or has so much more meaning
has so much more meaning.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said none of the sound Hadith
mancha Anna Arcor kala ma hula Illa Illa Allah
diaconal Jana, whoever's last speech in this world the life is La Ilaha illa Allah
that they will enter the paradise.
if a person hears that statement,
wants to wants to gamble. Gambling is haram.
But they want to gamble, not monetary gambling.
They say you know what, I'm going to live my life how I'm going to live my life. But just before medical mode before they come, I'm going to say La Ilaha illa Allah.
Just before my time is up, maybe I get old and become weak and feeble. I'm on my deathbed. I say La Ilaha illa Allah and I go into Jana.
Is this how it is? No, it is not of course.
Because you ask
where is the sincerity?
in a class
A normal topic of alleged loss or sincerity.
This is something I just mentioned last week actually.
A lot of the time you're talking about to be sincere to Allah subhanaw taala
Well, my only rule does anybody know the IRS auditor Bayona
and it will say the it me
it literally I would Allah mostly seen, we are commanded and they were not commanded except to worship Allah azza wa jal alone. Sincerely, a class. What does that actually mean? I mean, we a lot of the time
as Muslims, for those who don't speak Arabic, a lot of those terms are translated into English for us. And over a period of time, you get, you don't need the English terminology anymore. You know, a class. And if you ask for a translation, you're usually Yeah, that's sincerity. Has to be sincere to Allah subhanaw taala. But then, that's the knowledge part.
What is the practical part of you being sincere?
How? How do you show sincerity? Is it before your Salah? You say I'm about to face a lot of the hot for a cat. Is that your sincerity? Is that a class? The person will say that's your knee. And
so what is the knee or near the class name? It is a confusion between the two.
Are we telling Allah as a result of what I'm doing? Am I telling Allah Allah Allah, Allah what I'm about to do? Do you know what you're doing? Yes, I know what I'm doing. If you know what you're doing, then Allah azza wa jal knows what you're doing. So believe me, there is no need for you to say like these statements.
But Allah class sincerity.
If we want to get
a taste, of really what it means, or how to be sincere, to Allah subhanaw taala then there's something that you need to do.
There's something that you need to do to be as sincere, or whatever it is to feel sincere.
When we come to the masjid, we're amongst people
maybe I'm fighting with myself and by doing so people say mashallah for learn the here in the masjid. And if I don't come, what will people say? Maybe a person has this feeling.
So firstly, as the struggle that much more if you like, when amongst people getting sicker, or there's a charity function, that by giving charity in front of people, it's difficult for you
To hide that from people there are certain about that I can't perform Hajj alone is impossible. When will ever happen I'm the only person performing Hajj it's not gonna happen. 3 million people performing Hajj. So lots of people are dead, lots of worship,
lots of EVA that is done with people, they're already seeing it.
But what do you do? What act of a bad do you offer?
That nobody knows about?
Do you offer any worship that is between purely only between you and Allah subhanaw taala nobody else knows about it. Your wife doesn't know about it. Your children don't know about it your mother, your father, nobody.
The Prophet alayhi salatu salam on many occasions when we hear
that he used to pray pm will lead
the narration mentions that I shall not the Allahu Allah, that she would wake up. And she would notice the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praying
meaning that the Prophet Allah is or some did not on every single occasion, wake his family for keyamo Lane,
that he would have a bad he would have worship that nobody knew about
your secret worship with Allah subhanaw taala.
And if you put yourself in that position,
because Leiria fear there is no showing off in that, who you showing off in front of
you can't show off it off in front of anybody if nobody knows about it. So if you want to understand how to or to put your position, or put yourself in a position to be sincere is to start offering worship to Allah subhanaw taala nobody knows about it.
And the feeling that you have the feeling that you have when you offer that secret divider between you and your Lord,
this inshallah to Allah will give you an indication of what it means to be sincere and true to your Lord.
And if you don't have that feeling, or you're missing that feeling, and many a time we ask ourselves, I'm not feeling my burden.
Maybe because I forgot what it means or how to be sincere to Allah subhanaw taala. So therefore, I need to do something else to change that.
So that I can feel that I'm sincere to Allah subhanaw taala.
And this is tofield.
This is a success. This is a football, this is a virtue
that also Panatela gives to whom He wills. Not everybody will have that.
Ha this is we have the abdomen Warthog. That is a successful servant, whom Allah subhanaw taala enables to do that.
And if you're not involved in that,
you're not one who gives charity. You're not one who establishes those rockhard you're not establishing many, many things that you should be establishing.
Then that is maybe a type of Hitman.
Maybe that is a type of Allah azza wa jal, you are deprived of something.
But why are you being deprived? Physically? Mentally, you have the capability of the person who's sitting next to you. We are the same. Maybe I'm younger, fitter. But why is that old individual while he can do it, and I can't do it. What's he doing? That I'm not
the relationship they have with Allah subhanaw taala? No, that will be different.
And Allah azza wa jal enables them to do these things.
And this is what we need to do.
We need to understand who Allah subhanaw taala is.
The Joe Healy Arabs, the people of coalition at the time, they did not understand who Allah azza wa jal was
their understanding of who the Rabbul aalameen was, was mixed up.
And also cannot add or send the Prophet alayhi salatu salam to teach the people to teach mankind monologue book, Who is your Lord?
Who is your Lord? K for Telugu? And how do you worship Him?
These things are taught to us. And it is these fundamentals that we need to go back to don't belittle them saying that. I don't need to know I've done that when I was young.
This is not something that is a simply knowledge. But there needs to be action on that knowledge.
There's no point a person having all the knowledge and no implementation in fact,
you may come under the earlier lead in most boob era him from those whom earned the anger of Allah
Anyone who had an who had knowledge. Well, I'm Jana Liu, but they didn't act upon it.
So it is very important for us as Muslims, not only to focus on the external
but also to focus on the internal and your relationship with the last panel. Tell them what you can do on a daily basis to prepare yourself and to beautify what you desire and you wish from Allah azza wa jal and that is the paradise of my Ask Allah Allah Allah to make us from the people of genuine Amin with this shadow to Allah.
I'm going to conclude this the short advice I give to you and I ask Allah to forgive me for any of my shortcomings. And
the brothers have some
I don't decide to live in the system but they asked kindly that if you have any questions that you may ask
okay, if you have any questions you may ask if I can answer I would answer if if they cannot, I cannot I will say Allahu Allah I don't know. Not so there's a microphone
Xochimilco Hara masala was having a lot of code in the beginning Mahamadou early he was off be here remain
What's one word Islam was Hola. Hola. Yes. Hello? Yes.
So, the brother is asking what is Haleiwa.
So, when you translate the word halwa essentially means seclusion or to be alone.
And there are many the word itself is used for a number of things like if somebody as rockmelon wants us to wants to use the color, which Aza McCullough is the person where they would answer the call of nature. That means a places away from people alone, far away.
That's the origin of the word to be alone and to be far away, to isolate it.
But if you're talking within the sense of the mixing of people, like this, men and women or things like that, so yeah, so the Prophet alayhi wa sallam defined to us in a hadith in which that no man and woman who are not related, they're not Muharram to each other, they should not be alone. And if they are accepted, the third one would be the shaitan.
So the Sharia has laid out boundaries, in terms of interaction
in terms of interaction between the genders.
Now on this point
does that answer your question? Will this answer your question?
Now, I want to add something to this question to what I just said,
when we're talking about this issue, in particular,
the interaction of the males and males and females within Islam we have guidance concerning that very clear guidance from the Quran and the Sunnah. There are times if somebody isolates and picks one area
or isolates and picks one Hadith and leaves it at that, sometimes they will find it difficult to justify and to present this hadith in a society that doesn't adhere to that.
Okay. So for example, this hadith is an example that no man or woman should be together except that the shaytaan will be the third one of them.
Now, if you try to present the or explain that to be practical here in the UK, for example, can be quite difficult.
But from an Islamic perspective,
it is important for us to explain the whole picture, but why is this the case? Why do you have this guidance? Why? So that means that we need to look at other evidences. And we need to look at what the Sharia is, is teaching us what Allah subhanaw taala is trying to preserve, and to protect because there's an element of protection here.
There are many principles that we can speak about the are extracted from the Quran and Sunnah. Like definitely my first set,
definitely my first tip, that is to repel wrongdoing an evil
or any harm.
The ayat that you put together in terms of the hijab, the idea to hijab and sort of the Northern hazard, okay, the interaction that we have between one another again, and these two sources and also an assault on her gerat, the ahaadeeth that we take concerning the interaction when we put all of these together
Okay, and this is projected on being implemented in our society,
you see that there is an end goal to this, this is the intended.
This is your objective, this intended objective behind all of these things. No seclusion will not cover men cover in a different way. So it's important that the message is the message is projected correctly. And if you isolate a hadith alone, or you isolate an area alone, sometimes it's difficult to speak to a person.
Because it all goes back to heavy volume, which is Turner, it all goes back to the preservation of the society,
protecting the individuals and protecting the community at large.
That the person that they may argue they refuse to say that, Well, are we not people, we can't control ourselves. Listen, there may be individuals who can control themselves.
This is not saying that everybody is on the right is like an uncontrollable animal is going to start doing what they like.
But society of the Society of justice, there are many individuals who hope
you understand there are many people. And as time goes along, that number is increasing, that they can't control themselves. And they're doing that like, For this reason, these parameters are placed there to protect people from falling into these things. This is why when we're talking about Islam, and the guidance has given to us it's a long term plan. So long term vision, what Allah subhanaw taala wants for all of us that when we're living on Earth, this is how we're going to behave for the 50 6070 years, or however many years that you live on this earth. And for the communities and the generations that pop up like three every century, roughly, every is every 100 years, there's
approximately three generations. Each generation is preserved and looked after. So they don't harm and and create mischief amongst themselves. So when God was speaking about halwa and seclusion, this is just one element amongst many other things, which all go towards protecting and preserving and having a healthy community.
salam aleikum shake.
My question is regarding a hadith that says pro Mohamed Salah Salem mentioned in summary basically that the Muslims will be divided into 73 sects is it's a he's
kind of a scary Hadith and makes you think what, what separates that one group of people who only enter Gen from the remaining 73? What are the fundamental things that separate them and what should we know about this or how can we ensure that we're on that group that inter gender can
save that the Hadith the what is mentioned is Allah here is, is how sound Hadith in which the Prophet alayhi wa sallam informed us
Cardiff terracotta the hood, that the route they divided themselves into 71 different groups
and that the Nosara they divided into 72
and this is OMA SATA, Toyoko LF Earth and Mr. garena feel that they will divide into 73.
All of them would be in the file except one.
In another narration
in another narration, which is found in the tin MIDI with this unusual sound Hadith that the Companions they said, man whom Yasser Allah and who are these, who is the saved people
that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Ali Helio was Harvey, that would I am upon and my companions.
It is very important that when we talk about any issue in Islam, we talk about it holistically.
And we do not isolate one Hadith or one aspect of fate or miss Allah and drive home a point and ignore so many other things which are also very important as well.
So the overall overarching kind of like benefit that we take from this
is that yes, the OMA will go into different areas and split them and have different understandings and whatnot, that will happen just as previous nations they did as well.
So the companions are not the ally and on the sahaba. Their concern was okay, who were these people because we want to be from those people who are saved on the correct path.
And the profit is established. The guidance and the teachings that the profit or loss from gave was Herbie and my companions is something for us.
to refer back to
not only for us to go back to the Prophet alayhi salam, Len is happy there's no discussion or dispute over that. But the inclusion of the Sahaba to refer to the Sahaba is this something for us to go back to or not?
This, if you like, throughout the Times has been a point of discussion. Do we go back to the sahaba? As a point of understanding our deen or not.
And we will say it it is emphatic that yes, we do go back to the Sahaba Radi Allahu Anhu. In issues that they were at the time of the Prophet, they saw they lived the revelation and how they implemented and understood the deen of Allah, Allah, Allah Allah is something that was simply just cannot be bypassed.
Because if you bypass them or miss them out,
then for every generation that came after that, they would each person would go directly to back to the direct to the Prophet salallahu Salam. So a man or woman now in 2018, doesn't go back to the Sahaba or the Aleinu, who would be a hawk oneness would have the most right to go back to
that person goes back to Al Bukhari, for example, takes that hadith, and they become the own interpreter, the overseer, they're the ones who are going to look at the religion within their own understanding,
which is a big danger is a big mistake. Because then you will find
because here you will find what here you will find that everybody has their own religion and their own own understanding. And this is exactly what the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, that we would, that we would have so many understandings, but the people who won't fall into all these misunderstandings is that those who will go back to the Prophet adesto, Saddam, and the companions
that you see the link, that if you miss that out, that's when you find people who have their own interpretations and going their own way.
But if you include this, as the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Hey, don't Nursey that the best of people
ah, his Kermie, my generation from Malvina Yuuna home from Monday, Lena you don't know then those who come after the news will come after those who are closest to the source.
And it is important that from these sources,
that we extract our understanding and we extract power,
we extract principles, it is of the utmost importance to recognize that
and if a person essentially wants to dilute to that or to to push that out the wait, then we will have there will be issues in the understanding of the deen of Allah azza wa jal will love to
Santa Monica Salama. So you talked about s loss, and you mentioned the loss of sincerity.
And I guess maybe that's a translation something's lost. So would you mind just explaining a bit more what the Arabic term your class means? Yeah, the word meaning class. Yeah.
So just to expand a little further on.
from its other meanings is to purify. Okay, so we're talking about to purify and to single out you're a birder, Your Worship Me, meaning, that you dedicate it solely for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, because you know, that Allah Jalla deserves that it is his right.
So, when you offer your Salah and this is what we talking about, that Shiva Allah He said
that the matter which I used to fight with the most was to remain sincere or my intention was we used to fight with the most
we talking about
purifying our worship, remaining sincere to Allah subhanaw taala.
This is why I think so I mentioned the example practical example of trying to do something alone. And the feeling that you have at that time will place you in a zone where
it will bring you closer to understanding what it means to be sincere to Allah subhanaw taala
is to purify and that is not mixed with.
Because the Prophet alayhi wa sallam said a waffle MA for that matter that I fear to you the most is Shere Khan. Asko is the minor shark, the small shark and they said what is this?
And that the prophet Elisha described it as a form of RIA showing off the man would beautify his Salah, the example that was given. So all good intention you came not expecting anybody to be there.
But when you entered the masjid, you prayed in a manner because there were people there in a way that you don't usually pray in.
So, for example, when you pray at home
and maybe you know, there's nobody around.
This is a way of you are also looking at not entirely, but the quality of your Salah, the quality
and your, the level of sincerity because you know Allah azza wa jal deserves, even if you offer it in the best way that you can offer you know that Allah Jalla wa Ala deserves more than that.
You can never achieve when you can never give what Allah azza wa jal is deserving. So if you're praying a bit in a particular way regularly at home, but then you come into the masjid and because people around to see in Salah to that you beautify your Salah because of that may be a problem
because you're not offering your salah
or rather you're offering your Salah in a way because you don't want people to say something about your Salah disparaging
nice ruku nice to dude, no rushing, okay. These are the kinds of things I mean, it's not easy. It's a lifelong struggle. There's not a person, you know, merely says that I'm a Muslim, and that automatically that you're moralists that you automatically be sincere. It's not always the case. There's no guarantee for that. It's a struggle, and a lifetime of striving to try and purify and dedicate everything to Allah subhanaw taala not wanting any other or any reward from any person
or do you have any recommendations to learn Sharia law here in the UK? Like what's the best places to go to or courses that you would recommend? As we're recommending we're advising to learn
al Islam whatever term you want to say I mean
I don't know I mean
there are Institute's around the country I'm not sure how practical that is really for you here in Aberdeen.
You know, there are institutes in London for example that are established
like Arabic schools or Quran schools.
I think that
it just needs the initiative a person just to start something up, even if it's small.
Even if it's men, I'll give you examples of all different places around the UK but okay, then you leave but I can't go to any of those places. I don't know how practical that is for me. So what about what ideas are what can we do to make
you know Aberdeen a place where we can we can learn
so for example, if you've got a you know, somebody who is very competent in Quran for example,
okay, maybe has, you know, a Senate or has urges in certain recitations of the Quran. For example, in London and outside London, this is a couple of Institute's
where there's a fee. And I think it's important that there's a fee, because when a person pays a fee, that they have within themselves were paid something a bit ago, because once it's free, people turn up for one or two weeks, and then they don't come with free.
So the payment is there, not just to fill people's pockets. But the payment is there to ensure that the person is serious about what they're doing. And to cover any costs as well.
There's an MA or an institute which teaches the different Pirot.
And Hamdulillah. There are many students who have gone through a health program. I'm not talking about, you know, what is usually done like a madrasa for the children. I mean, that shouldn't be done. But you want to take something to the next stage. Also for the elders, that they want to go for a good health program.
And it may be just one day in the week. And they have
five appointments, 20 minute appointments, for example, that you able to sit with a share, for example, and you have a health program with him.
So you can do something like this. And this is again, when seeking knowledge when trying to build a community. It's always looking about
the long term objective. I'm not trying to solve something in a week, because you know, we have lots of issues and things aren't solved in a week. These problems didn't appear within a week.
They peered over a period of time. And similarly, is the son of Allah azza wa jal, the things need to be eradicated likewise over a period of time.
So if we want to strengthen the people's attachment and learning the Quran one day a week, we have somebody who's really competent in the Quran.
Okay, it doesn't even have to be able to teach all Azure Azure audit 10 visit and modes of recitation just want to pass analysis.
And then you have 20 minute sessions with that person. And you have a weekly kind of plan with them one day in the week. And then after that, they you know, you do that for a month, for example.
And you see how they are they continue with that, if a person drops out, you fill them with another person, maybe the list starts to you know, there's a backlog of people to apply to do that, then, okay, we'll increase it to two days a week.
And if it's a don't have to be in the message, it could be anywhere outside, it could be like, some office space or something like that. Okay. And then if something starts something very small, and then slowly but surely it grows. That's to do with something with the Quran.
Yeah, so that's just an idea if you like, Allah has written his best medical log.
Salam Alaikum. This is actually a follow up question to the same topic.
We see online services like Corsi, and edX. And these are all my resources from reputable universities like Harvard.
It's called corsia. These are
basically degrees that you can get online from reputable universities. I think most universities in the UK and America are offering these courses. And
I know that there are courses as well that the universe Islamic universities are offered online. Yeah. Is there any courses that you you recommend in Arabic? I think so. Yes. Yeah. You know, is that academia that no, this is free?
Is an Arabic Yeah, it is a two year program. Because that Academy, they have to do every every fossil. I mean, they've just started now I think the next one will be maybe in the end of December, maybe Ottawa monster where it has four levels, everything's in Arabic. And if you get accepted, they send you the PDFs, of the books, the seven subjects that you do.
You do, okay, the fifth Hadith, see it, and look, labia,
And then you have YouTube videos, with a chef going through each of the sections that you do on a weekly basis. That's something you can do on your own time. And it's very simple. And it's not very difficult as if the Bharat is exempt weekly exams. And then there's monthly exams, and then as possibly exams, like term exams. That's something it's free, it's modern, and it's free for you. And I think also, there's a Islamic University online, we're from Bilal Philips as well. That's, that's also very good. There may be some charges for exams, one on the grand scheme of things I don't, it's not gonna make anybody broke, you know, so, these are options there. And I remember, you know,
throughout my time,
people would ask me, I want to go study Islam, I want to do this, I want to do that.
And with good intention.
And it's almost similar to
it's all about the permission of Allah azza wa jal, you know, in the playground, it wants to be everyone wants to be a footballer.
Everyone wants to be the footballer in the playground, but not everybody becomes a footballer.
There are certain people, maybe they had talent, but they didn't really have the Azima within themselves. But there were other people who maybe weren't so good, that had a strong Azeema had a strong desire to do that. And maybe they were successful in something.
Similarly, you know, in the past, they were, you know, there was a person I met, and
No, it was about to year 2000. And I was I was in I was in West London, and a lot of that, but I was studying University as a summer holidays at the time. And so many people would say, How do I get to a unit? You know, Medina University, can you write me a test key? Can you write me a recommendation and whatnot?
And I said, you know, I can make to skip, I don't know you have to be fair.
Because there are certain requirements that you can get a recommendation from a masjid or an individual who's studying at the university.
So but I didn't know who he was at the time. He was a Moroccan Baba. And he said, I want you I want to go to study at Medina.
And we want
With a skier
I said, you know, the best thing for you to do to be honest with you is if go make her a moron. Make intention for Omraam while you're there, passed by Medina, because I assume you will come to Madina, Munawwara coming to Mr. Naboo I'll be in the I'll be in the university. I completely forgot about the issue. It was on a weekend afternoon or something like this. About six months later was in like November, December time for the same year of this year 2000 somebody knocked on the classroom said somebody's looking for you. And they said he's not from the university I said impossible nobody How would they know I'm here.
So anyway, I went out and it was that brother
and he said, You told me to come I made more ombre and I said Subhanallah I said let's go. So we went to the remodel and this shoe owner is showing it to lab went to the Student Affairs building, um, had an interview had an interview
is such as like a long hair on acid May Allah give it away. I think maybe a year later or two years later, he was accepted.
He just finished his PhD now.
He finished his PhD maybe
maybe two years ago, and he did his PhD in Durham University. He done his book on Chevelle led by
a book called cada
there are those people
that they're not relying on people to seek knowledge.
They have this within themselves to just go and do it.
And they and Allah azza wa jal gives that within certain people to have this within themselves, they just go ahead and they do it they asked you if you're not going to help me muscular I'm doing it myself anyway. The other people they want to do it they come back to I want to study I want to study I want to study I want to study to Allah Allah you know, okay, no problem. There are certain people you they come to you give them direction and they go ahead and they do it.
Okay, because then studying and then wanting to better themselves, okay, knowledge and make potable and it's not dependent on you helping them.
You're not the be on endo in helping them. We're just a means if it's not you is going to be somebody else is going to help me, isn't it? Okay, so
I forgot your question completely. Studying online. Yeah. Okay, kind of diverted a little bit. But these are committed to some of the options that are there.
Any final questions?
May Allah bless you and reward you as well? Just on behalf of all brothers and sisters, I would like you to remember us in your very simple question. When and how did you become a Muslim? Please?
Can we do this tomorrow? Can we do because they can answer this question tomorrow. Because I'm here again tomorrow. Be alive tomorrow. I didn't finish I said if Allah gives us life, if Allah gives us life, I will answer the question tomorrow. There's okay. But Santa Rosa did the only person I didn't answer your question directly. For about David Nick. If you don't mind. I was there too. Because maybe the brothers they want to go home Jazak Allah Monica Luffy. I will I will I will mention my story because the sob she did very very, very short because it's nothing really
all that amazing. Really.
I'll do that tomorrow. Inshallah Tada
nabina Docomo O'Hara brothers May Allah bless you all
and allow us to meet once again inshallah to Allah tomorrow. Salam aleikum wa
