00:06:10 --> 00:06:11


00:06:44 --> 00:06:53

insha Allah for time sake, we will continue and without further ado, I'd like to invite Shane to stop.

00:07:14 --> 00:07:16

All right as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

00:07:19 --> 00:07:28

hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah salam Allahu, Allahu Allah, Allah, he was talking to you he was selling this Lehman CAP theorem were bad. Now before we get started,

00:07:31 --> 00:08:20

I just want you to know that I am live streaming this. So if you do want the slides later on, or if you do want to access it later on, or if you want to share it with somebody who's not here at the moment, what you can do. And I'll just open a new a new tab. at my website yesterday, Brahim, a little bit of shameless self promotion. never heard anyone right.com forward slash live, you'll be able to see kind of what I'm just checking to make sure that people can see what we're seeing, right? You go to watch. And the Hadeeth tour is here. That's our talk. And these are the slides that will be the desert cough and he's

00:08:22 --> 00:08:22


00:08:25 --> 00:08:48

But I thought I'd just share that with you so that we're all doing the right thing in Charlevoix and feel free inshallah, if you do have reception under all this concrete to share it out with other people that might be of benefit to them as well. So for that reason, I'm going to be kind of stuck behind the podium, if that's okay. All right.

00:08:49 --> 00:09:03

Let's get ourselves situated in Sharla if you don't mind, I think the screens picking up this way. I want to be able to kind of go back and forth through the slides. And you could see that there's like 134

00:09:04 --> 00:09:13

there were 245 at around noon today and then I thought Nah, that's a little bit too much. Let me take away some yet 246 is it

00:09:15 --> 00:09:21

Mashallah, all right. So it's a I guess it's your huddle, I actually try anyway.

00:09:23 --> 00:09:26

All right, let's, let's begin officially, inshallah.

00:09:27 --> 00:09:29

I said, I want to come to LA what I can

00:09:31 --> 00:10:00

come to have the level so that was an MRI, not assuming that from the love it was to them were bad. Always we begin our journey of knowledge. And this is, I hope, the purpose that we're gathered here for to learn about something that we may already know, and to be reminded of it, and I wanted to begin kind of speaking about one of the words that a lot commonly uses in the headline which is Vic and a loss of power.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:43

Tai Lopez Weatherford menzerna he like Vikram Movado, we've revealed to you this reminder it's full of blessing and the word the international Zen vichara we're in Allahu Allah have a boon. I've given you this Vicar and we will be the ones Allah and all of those who are conveying it to others will be in the command of a loss of Hannah Montana to be guardians for it. So the thick in the Arabic language it kind of has five important usages. The first of them is to tell you something you don't know right? A reminder of something. Hey, you didn't know this web decoder finicky Tabby Moosa. Let me tell you about Moses. You don't know anything about him? Yeah, Mohamed Salah. lavon. He was

00:10:44 --> 00:11:31

another is that a loss of kind of what Allah will tell you about something you know, but due to the circumstances of life, you forgotten whether it can be a yummy law, a law says to move Sally SLM, remind vinius law, each of the days have passed, where they had a greater covenant on to God, right. The third establishment of the word, Vic, is to remind you of something, you know, and you haven't forgotten, but you're trying to avoid. So a loss of kind of metalla says, with whether you're in a v cross 10 fell mean it benefits the believers. The fourth usage of the word Victor is a very conventional usage, meaning it is at the current Hakeem, it is a reminder that is full of wisdom,

00:11:31 --> 00:11:49

and it's something that we are ordered to remember. And it may be reflections of what we know of the past and things that we are going to be cold towards the future. But the fifth and final usage, which is probably the most important usage, is that it reminds us of our own mortality.

00:11:50 --> 00:12:22

And whenever you travel, fussy who fill out from Lu k for Ghana, Africa to London and travel the earth, God says and look at to the consequences of the inevitability of a life leaves. Where have these people gone? The end of sort of money in the 19th chapter of the Koran has dismantled at home, Rick, do you even hear a whisper from them?

00:12:23 --> 00:12:30

whenever some kind of law, I'm able to travel and how law allow us all to travel out of who

00:12:33 --> 00:12:45

Adelaide is looking pretty good people. Sure we could do like a historical tour of Adelaide or something. Right? This is coming from a guy some kind of law my month of October last month.

00:12:46 --> 00:12:55

Last year, compared to this October, I took 38 flights last October like I was looking at October 2019. And then

00:12:57 --> 00:13:05

I drove to Bumbry. So it's like one of those kinds of things. But it is an MMO from a loss of kind of huhtala. It's an incredible,

00:13:08 --> 00:13:32

you know, shift in our humans. The Psychology of redemption, the psychology of understanding our own place in the world that were smallness, our little pale blue dot that we live upon, is something that was made really quite evident to most of us, if not all of us, men, lots of kind of with Allah give us access a lot of money.

00:13:33 --> 00:13:37

Twice a year, I would take a group of people

00:13:38 --> 00:14:16

from all over the world. And the first year we limited it to one bus. The second year, we said we're not going to go more than one bus, we're going to limit it to one bus. And the third time we went in the same year said doesn't matter. We're going to limit it to one bus. Because it's not about tourism in making profit. It's about connecting with each other and traveling with each other. So the people who came with me to Hajj came with me to was Becca Stan came with me to like Jerusalem. And it's like we became this little huddle. There's people here who traveled with me to Jerusalem and I was like, Hey, man, I was like, shall we get to go to his breakfast? It's like, this is the

00:14:16 --> 00:14:59

thing that we do now. So it's a little mini tribe coffee down right, a caravan seeking acquaintance with a lot and a heritage that is beyond us. So heritage tours.co is something that a dear friend, my brother Sajid and I we've kind of collaborated on and we said, we want to do travel to important places. So we were intending this year to do Islamic Ethiopia. Like, Did you know The first message before the prophets message it was in Ethiopia, like when they make because you got to think about it right? jofra The Allahu anhu all these Sahaba they snuck out

00:15:00 --> 00:15:05

of Mecca. They are not going to Medina they went to Habesha, and then they got there. What do you think they did?

00:15:07 --> 00:15:49

Well, they asked for a place to pray. And they built the first was the first Mark was in Africa before it was in Medina. Right. So Wouldn't you like to go and see that and kind of study the history of Java yob and the encounter with an A joshy? The negative of Abyssinia Would you like to eat Ethiopian food food is always much like our tours, they're so cheap. And we make no profit intentionally because we spend it all food. Like we go to the top kind of places that we want to experience and you'll see this I hope 246 slides of food.

00:15:50 --> 00:16:34

I wanted to give a shout out to important people. For those of you from Malaysia and so on. You might know Miss Nina and Muhammad knew they were some of the first people who traveled with me too, because then so they're Mashallah wonderful people and know they're watching now, Sister savea, who's got an awesome lens for an online sister Miss Buck was a purse this year, some of her photos are gonna show up from here, Sr. So hayleigh from KL Dr. Nadia from the UK and all of South Africa. Because South Africa are like the guys who traveled with me, right I got a bunch of South African Mashallah uncle's chill, you know, it's just like an amazing kind of adventure. So said I want to

00:16:34 --> 00:17:13

come to South Africa. Don't miss Jamal for this and john like can watch it later. And they were like, Chef, can you delay at one hour? It's due on time. It's like no. All right, so and all the beautiful souls and especially for my dear brother Sajid for doing all the logistics. This is our battle plan for today. And this isn't like a lecture, right? My I'm not, you know, lecturing our I want to spend a little bit of time with you to do the kind of thing that we do this. I'm traveling now. Don't ruin the moment. I'm already in Uzbekistan, you're coming along. We're there. So we're gonna talk a little bit about the most amazing people

00:17:14 --> 00:17:21

you will really ever travel to see. See, when you hear Uzbekistan, you think it's like other stands.

00:17:23 --> 00:17:52

Like even me as a lot of house buyers, right? So it's going to be like so you hear this? Because then you kind of lump it into what the media has made us think of stands, right? So there's like Afghanistan, oh my god, like when I told my wife, hey, I'm going to inspect this and she goes, What are you talking about? There's a war there is no war. That's like a totally different place. They're a different culture different p that's centrally that's.

00:17:54 --> 00:18:02

So it's close by but it's not the same place. All right. So who's Becca? Stan is the fourth safest country in the world?

00:18:05 --> 00:18:07

Everybody gets married before 21.

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

Like the government gives you a house and pays for your man's like, point. Like it's either you get married or you go to the military? Ah,

00:18:19 --> 00:18:25

do I choose? I don't know. Okay, can I do both? Just to get away from it. Sometimes.

00:18:26 --> 00:18:29

It's incredible that the safety

00:18:31 --> 00:18:35

it's one of those places that when you land, and then you go out.

00:18:36 --> 00:18:37

And you're like,

00:18:39 --> 00:18:51

why is everybody nice? Like, where the homeless people? Isn't there a single beggar like a single person to ask for anything, anything.

00:18:52 --> 00:19:12

And you go to the masjid. And when you come out, your shoes are taken off the rack you off the rack. So you panic, somebody stole them. I'm in Egypt, oh my god, but shoes, and your shoes are actually placed at the step outside facing your exit. So you don't have to pull them up. Because you're a guest you shouldn't hold your shoes.

00:19:14 --> 00:19:25

You know what I mean? It's a totally different world. And this will become evident as I speak to you about some of the marketplaces we visited and so on.

00:19:26 --> 00:19:42

We're going to talk about a little bit about the blessing of travel about some of the biographies of those who are unknown, some of us will have that reach there. We're going to talk about visiting the deceased and the right way of visiting the tomb of any person.

00:19:44 --> 00:19:55

And that's important because you're going to places where there are two rooms and there are notable figures of history. And you want to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet Mohammed some A lot of it would send them

00:19:56 --> 00:20:00

we're going to talk about the everlasting home. We

00:20:00 --> 00:20:08

The good deeds that you perform are the mansions that you leave behind in this world and the mansions you inherit in the next life.

00:20:09 --> 00:20:40

Of course, we're going to speak about a mutant movement named Phil haviv. The great man, Mohamed, it means Marine, Al Bihari, who his great grandfather, his great great grandfather was a rusty, who was a fire worshipper from Persia, who didn't know anything about Arabic, who his grandson, three generations later became a mirror I mean, the chief of all the believer

00:20:43 --> 00:20:51

in eras in the conveyance of the narration of the prophets on the law on he was, he was born in Baja. Right.

00:20:53 --> 00:21:30

It's an incredible journey a little bit about Sahakian body, which is a book of course, that is important to study how to study it. Now, the whole purpose of the Hadeeth tour is that when we go and study the life of a human body, it's all lessons, right. So after fecha we have classes on the bus, we have classes on the train, we're talking, you know, in every message after every soda after every meal. And one of the great blessings is I always try to have other notable speakers who join me on these tours. Mashallah. So there's Uzbekistan, amongst the other stands, right?

00:21:31 --> 00:21:37

Now, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan.

00:21:38 --> 00:21:55

And there used to be east, Turkmenistan, which is the ego people, you know, the weird people, which at the moment, is one of the greatest tragedies that human beings have overlooked for a great extent. And one of the great

00:21:57 --> 00:22:49

points of shame that you and I should ask a loss of how know with Allah in our prayers of repentance, for our inability to affect creative change. So I want it to be something that you understand clearly it is a scene. I speak to you as a cleric at this point, it is a scene on my part and your part, not to raise our voice, not to raise our concern, in one way or another for those people whose heads are shaved, who are ripped away from their families, who whose body parts are harvested at times, and who face levels of criminality that the world hasn't seen since World words like Auschwitz, right? And the people who say this are those who live through or are the descendants

00:22:49 --> 00:22:57

of those who lived through Russia. In fact, some of the greatest champions of the legal people are

00:22:58 --> 00:23:05

Jewish, our compatriots who feel that pain, of course, there is a huge

00:23:06 --> 00:23:29

push within secular religious communities to affect change. And I thought it is important to kind of highlight that East Turkmenistan which was then taken as a part of the Greater China after World War Two, that they were a people who until now find themselves in a state of suffering.

00:23:31 --> 00:23:43

That's a quick map where you kind of see there's Tashkent, which is where you will land, which is right over here, some other climate, which is over here, and will hot off, which is over here.

00:23:45 --> 00:24:03

And this is a travel that we do over seven days. Sorry, seven nights, and seven days, some leave a little bit early. I usually leave early. Forgive me, if you ever traveled with me and I did you. It's usually because I'm going to somewhere more exciting now.

00:24:05 --> 00:24:40

But usually, I'm trying to get back to school or work or something like that. So when we land we get to Tashkent. But I'm not going to talk to you about plus 10 because we leave it straightaway. And we go directly to some other con, and I wanted to introduce you to some of the people who travel with me. These are probably faces that you know, visiting us in Perth, maulana Ibrahim bomb, who is one of the head theologians of South Africa. He is a Gemini. I believe the President if not the former president. He was the person who spoke on behalf of the Islamic community at the

00:24:41 --> 00:24:59

death of Nelson Mandela. He is a person who I count both as a mentor, teacher and martial law friend and he himself and his wife, they traveled with us Michelle law. Chef does that he had my mood. So you would have heard those awesome clips about like Genghis Khan.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:38

Like how we went into Baghdad and sacked it, and if you haven't heard that hear my mood. You're not watching Islamic videos. naughty naughty. Shame on you. Right. So here my mood is from Birmingham, the United Kingdom. And he's an expert. His his field of expertise is on the oral narrations and histories of the Muslim experience, especially during the Mongol times and the Mongol hordes that arrived into Baja. And he had a very unique experience. So he traveled with me for one of the sessions for one of the years as well as promised food.

00:25:40 --> 00:26:09

The thing about Uzbekistan is that it's right in the middle. So marcopolo travels through them. I'm going to show you the market the market where you literally stand in the middle Under the Dome, there used to be another dome, of course, it was bombed out and other things when the Bolsheviks came, but you stand in that same marketplace that has been there for 3000 years. And if you look that way, and you start walking on the Silk Road, you get to Rome.

00:26:10 --> 00:26:29

And if you say no, I don't want Rome you turn him and go to the other direction. India you turn say no, no, I don't want that one. Jan China. No, no, I don't want that one. Persian, Arabian and Damascus, right. So food became

00:26:31 --> 00:27:05

amazing. Meek's some of the best pasta noodles, you'll have. Uzbekistan, some of the best grilled meats, Uzbekistan, some of the best rice and Persian influences, Mashallah that I've ever had was in Uzbekistan. everywhere we went to of course, we unhemmed did not. We were one of the first English speaking groups to gain permission from the government to hold Islamic tours. Now you have to understand it was Becca Stan is very Russian.

00:27:06 --> 00:27:07


00:27:09 --> 00:28:07

the people that govern this area since the Bolshevik, you know, came in the communists when they arrived, any semblance of Islam or Islam mess outwardly, or even inwardly, they tried to wipe it away. So even some of our guides or some of the people they would meet, that we would meet their grandparents. We're not, we're not ever allowed to see to even see a Koran, let alone learn from it or hear it. The institutions of marriage and divorce, were wiped out in terms of kneecap and things like that. Right. And, and 100. Now, the revival that is ongoing today is an incredibly moving experience. So when you go and praise a lot of Joomla, and you see that there's 12,000, people lined

00:28:07 --> 00:28:56

up after the prayer, waiting for core ons to be handed out that have transliteration and translation in their language, literally, in the rain in the snow in the heat. They're just waiting. And once all of them run out, they come back the next one, right men, women, children, there's the thirst for learning and experience. So it was a great blessing. I was invited actually in March, but obviously due to COVID, nobody was able to attend there was a symposium that they wanted us to present on how we can attract tourism towards Pakistan, but at the same time allow the Uzbek people to see that Islam is not just a lived experience, but there are other people who are Muslim. Like for many of

00:28:56 --> 00:29:09

them, they hadn't really seen a dark skinned Muslim, and Arab Muslim, a blonde oh my goodness, like, Who are these people? Right? Are they are they real?

00:29:10 --> 00:29:17

So we would be given permission to teach in some of the important sites and sanctuaries.

00:29:18 --> 00:29:24

This is a small clip that I just wanted to share a part of it with you in jumla. We're

00:29:26 --> 00:29:30

looking at a monument and I just wanted to show you

00:29:35 --> 00:29:36

this particular

00:29:40 --> 00:29:43

kind of imagery where the film

00:29:44 --> 00:29:56

was attached to it now we know that this will be more than common Jenkins cons of it because we can't afford these buildings or destroy these buildings were fitted by more money into generation.

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

Let me know

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


00:30:02 --> 00:30:04

used to say, Sorry,

00:30:06 --> 00:30:07


00:30:10 --> 00:30:16

There we go. That's a part of the construction. So that's one of the ways that we don't

00:30:18 --> 00:30:18


00:30:19 --> 00:30:59

just communities. They have some of that same tradition, and an advocate as a part of the construction. So that's one of the ways that we know that this was a really early instruction on those who have just come into Islam. So the inverted triangles that are sitting on top of each other, they represent butterflies. The Rastafarians believe that moths and butterflies would carry your prayers from a fighter that was late at night if they're if their wings would syringe and it would float up into the air. And that would take your prayers are so when these people became Muslim, and they're building a minaret, you know, they're gonna call a lot about a level above some

00:30:59 --> 00:31:44

of the genitalia some of those influences are still there. So as a pattern that didn't have eyes or anything like that, but something that still was up their heritage of the path was that they built the menorah and had on the facade of the mosque, those little symbols that kind of represented the butterflies that harkens back to the days of their forefathers. And this is one of the very rare sites that you find in some icon that was left, only half broken by the hordes of Genghis Khan, when they entered and brought destruction to all that was surrounding it. It's such a beautiful mesrob

00:31:46 --> 00:31:58

and Mashallah, there was someone who stood behind me and did the right thing. So if you ever traveled with me, this is what you do. This is your job all right. Mashallah,

00:31:59 --> 00:32:41

does that common law fair? Ah, this piece of wood is one of the very rare last pieces of wood that remain since that sacking of some often by Genghis Khan. So when that method was destroyed, that Minato what part of it was still there, they would climb up the staircase on the inside to give the talk. And then there was this, you know, the magic, of course, was made of wood back then. So there was that beam that still had some of the ancient etching. So when they rebuilt the masjid, they placed it near the place of the fibula in a place where the mom and the people who come to pray will be able to see it. And remember, the days have passed. With the uncles, you got to connect with the

00:32:41 --> 00:32:41


00:32:43 --> 00:32:53

There's always a Mufti who seated and one of the really cool things that are really I'd love to have one of these in like my backyard, but my wife anyway.

00:32:55 --> 00:33:17

It's like, it's like a little platform. And that's where you eat. That's where you like, chill. That's where you do your thing. And that's a Mufti who seated there, and people will come will sit across from him men or women, and they will ask his religious opinion about particular issues.

00:33:18 --> 00:34:05

The next image is a ceremonial macom. And I wanted to highlight two important words, there's the word macom, which means the station and this is allegedly a place that commemorates the burial of a perfume, even at best, or the Yamaha blah, blah, so I'll put them in now bass is a cousin of the prophets, I tell him he's a younger brother of Abdullah, even my bass. And for the Remember, a bass is a really interesting because he's one of the last four people who brought down the body of the prophets, I send them into the grave, and in the Hadith, of siphon, behati, as ultimos got, he's the last one to come out because he was the youngest one. So he helped up the others. So they came out

00:34:05 --> 00:34:12

of the grave with the prophets I send them has been buried, and I best and I leave nappy upon him and put them and

00:34:14 --> 00:34:57

you know, he's the last one to to help them up. And as he does that, he's reading falls. And it was it he looked for it near where the prophets I send them was buried, and he picked it up, and he put it back on, and he was the last person to come in contact with the blessing messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that's one of the main things that he's known for peace and blessings be upon him. There's also a BYU there's also a statement it's not an authentic hadith, but it is themed hasn't never you read that, no matter how they say it's an acceptable transmission because there's so many other people that have reported it, where it is said that no one walked or resemble the

00:34:57 --> 00:35:00

prophets of Allah audio SLM after his

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

Daughter and grandsons more than equip them with a bath or the law. And so this is a makaan. It's not the grave. And I want that to be something that you kind of understand, right? Because sometimes you'll see these pictures and people kind of think that's the GRI. It's the macom. It just reminds you that there is this Sahabi, who passed away in this land who had come and was injured in in the conquest of some other fun, which wasn't conquered. And the Sahaba. They, they they repealed and they left back. And there were two stories that were told about him. One of them was that he was martyred in the battle, and he was buried up on the lead up on the hill. And that's why to go up to

00:35:43 --> 00:36:03

this place, he got to climb up a certain level of steps and stairs. So we don't know, nobody knows exactly where it is, right? Because it's war, and it's nighttime. And this is just a macom. It's not the actual agreement. The second narration, which seems to have greater support, is that a footballer who was injured was not able to travel back with the Sahaba.

00:36:04 --> 00:36:48

And he said, Listen, I'm going to stay amongst these people, and I'm going to teach them Islam, I want to learn their language. And when they departed, he stayed behind. And he lived amongst those people for a certain period of time. That's unknown. How long will lock with Allah, Allah? May Allah subhanho wa Taala extend his mercy upon I'll put them up now. This is another one of the chef's Mashallah undercover, handsome fellow chef, Mohammed Sharif, he's the founder of a method of Institute, if any of you have ever benefited from an method of Institute, he is a prolific martial law that I and he's a wonderful contributor. So he traveled with me as well, to, to, to this trip,

00:36:48 --> 00:37:17

and it was a wonderful, wonderful experience. All of these wonderful buildings are things that pictures and images cannot really do justice to. So although I would love to, like speak to you a little bit more in detail about them, they are not things that you will be able to, you know, see their beauty and that's what I mean about climbing up the hill because they said he was buried up on the hill, radi Allahu anhu waterbottle.

00:37:19 --> 00:38:10

The beauty of play of praying in ancient places is important for us to kind of remember that the prophets on the love on us and limb said, latter sheet the rehab inlet lfls, you are not permitted to travel for that route for that particular reason of worship, except to three localities. So if I was to say to you, hey, I want you to travel with me. And I want because we want to do a special prayer or we want to pray in this particular message. You would say to me, that is a heresy. It is a bita and a sinful behavior. Yes, to go to pray in a place intending to travel for it is considered heresy and sinful behavior because the Prophet limited our religious travel for observances to three

00:38:10 --> 00:38:34

places and magical forearm mechanika, Rama, the magic of the nebia sama lavon. He was a lamp. And an ox saw the farm as you measure the upside in the Holy Land, male muscle kind of metallic granted, it's his protection, and allow us to return to it and offer our slot back in it again along with me.

00:38:37 --> 00:39:17

One of the incredible aspects of the geometry and the design, of course, is that even without a microphone, people and you'll see this in the very last slide that I share with you. We came to the magic we did we miss a lot in a shot and I mentioned you know, it's still open. So I lead so often a shot and I was maybe about 300 It's a huge budget 300 meters up at the front. The sisters are at the back, no microphone and it's like they're sitting next to me. And it's like I'm reading next to them. It's an incredible feat of geometric design. We also had our dear brother Mufti, raw with

00:39:18 --> 00:39:59

Mufti Ziad, who is a resident of Melbourne, he also traveled martial law and had wonderful contributions. This is our dear brother Aziz. I know. So Michael mozzies. How you doing Effie? I know you can say Sam, but I know you're saying like a l'affaire. He's watching as well. He's the brother who helps us on the ground over there. And he's an incredible brother, Mashallah. I know it looks fancy and like we're invited into like the royal residence, but that's like what restaurants look like, man. It's incredible. It's like you feel awkward walking in in pairs of jeans and like, you know, it's like, oh, the cutlery is fine. And these people really do it. Right. Michelle law

00:40:02 --> 00:40:44

teaching the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the main mission of the heritage tour. So we begin the study of the life of an amendment of the hottie before we get to Bukhara. And then we begin studying selections from Sahih al Bukhari. So I usually like to teach a different chapter from so Hakan Bahati in each and every trip. And in each and every trip, I like to give ijazah in one country, it's usually I'll usually give like the first Hadeeth, or the last idea with the Senate, that goes back to my teachers, so that those who have been there have connected with it. Now, one of the great blessings is, every time that we did our tour, we would try to coordinate it

00:40:44 --> 00:41:31

with the visit of senior scholars. So one of the teachers who I studied a little bit under a chef Mohammed Rama, who is Mohammed philosophy is the heartbeat of our era at the moment, we also kind of have to either continue to grant him good health. He was there visiting in the same time that we were there and it was like, you know, an awesome experience that we'll speak about a little bit later, inshallah. So let's talk about some on an environmental hottie complex environment hot. He was born in Bukhara. He was born to a father who was a merchant. His father has one hadebe reference through him collected by a human man. His father was a textile merchant and was a trader. So he got

00:41:31 --> 00:42:09

to travel. And when he traveled as a religious man, he would go and listen and take lessons and hear heavy. And of course, when he would go to another place, people would say, Have you heard anything? He says, Yes, I heard from this person from this person. So he's Hadeeth was collected into the model of earning my money. He wasn't a scholar of Hadith, but he kind of dabbled in it like it was his sidekick. It was his wonderful journey through the knowledge of Islam that connected him to the tradition of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it's for that reason, you can almost see that the amount of behati who is orphaned as a young age, he would find out that his

00:42:09 --> 00:42:43

father's greatest passion, wasn't making money, but was studying hygiene. Now that kind of goes to the importance of, you know, setting a precedent and wanting to, you know, provide influence towards others. So in the moment will hotties mother who was wealthy because when their father passed away, he left an estate and he left land. And I want and one of the first things that I always correct in the travels is that I always correct the misnomer that Matt were poor.

00:42:45 --> 00:43:18

The minimum would never forward. They were usually the wealthiest people, but they were people of old truism. So any mama's boy, hottie was not a poor person. But when you read his his biography, you're going to read a section that emammal Mohali for nearly a month, he had no money that he would take leaves and boil them to make soup to get by. That was until the caravan came and gave him a sack of gold so he could get his business back into into shape. imaginable hottie Imam, Abu hanifa, you know,

00:43:20 --> 00:43:38

you know, these gravy moms, they were not people who sat and did nothing. And they weren't just people who were paid by the state. And they take that tradition from none other than our individual condiments on the lobby, we send them. So if I was to ask you, on a scale, would you say the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:43:39 --> 00:43:42

was a person who was

00:43:44 --> 00:43:50

always in poverty? Or was he a person who was relatively well off? Which of the two Do you assume?

00:43:52 --> 00:44:18

See, because you kind of think all the prophets, I said them, there were time didn't he tie a star stone on his stomach? He was so hungry, like, No, those were moments in history. And that's the importance of studying the student that and not just Hadeeth. So when you study it, if you read a particular statement, and it'll say the prophets, I send them it was a time of famine or the time of hunger. somebody knocked on his door, and there was only three dates, and I gave it to the mother and the two girls ate it. And that was it.

00:44:20 --> 00:44:25

Yes, but the prophets of the law, it was seldom that there was a PhD.

00:44:27 --> 00:45:00

Four years ago, maybe five years ago, that was published that accounted for all this ad that spoke about the amount of gold the Prophet donated, like his goal, something that he had somebody gave him or something he earned or land that he bought or and then he donated it. So you can verify who the Prophet paid this for or bought this for. And it's in the excess of 10s of millions of our dollars today. Right? The amount

00:45:00 --> 00:45:46

money spent by the prophet SAW Selim upon others think of Sandman and faricy. Think of you know the woman in Surah mujaddid Allah who comes to the Prophet, sorry, sentiment, she says, you know, my husband and Allah says he has to fast 60 days. She says he can't do it on Okay, then he's got to feed 64 people got he's got, you know, he has to feed six, he has nothing on messenger below. So the prophets, I send them donate 40 people's food, she donates 20. So that that's just how he was some a lot, but he was right. So don't think that the earlier man were people of poverty. They were people of affluence, and had a very prominent standing in society that the Soufan would shake, not from

00:45:46 --> 00:46:29

their knowledge, but from their placement in the hearts and minds and influence amongst people. And this will become really important as we proceed to the end of the life of an Imam and behati Rahmatullah. How are they? So in the moment, Bahati, it's a young age eight or seven, he says to his mom, I want to do what my dad does, and it's not trading, I want to learn how to be and he was a young child of sharp mind who memorized the full on before the age of nine, who memorize from the odema hadebe everything that they had in his region. And once it was, you know, once nobody in that area of bajada, and they were the standard because the amount of Hadees were all from this country.

00:46:29 --> 00:47:14

Eman Muslim from Asia for him antimony from tenement which is Southern Uzbekistan, right, or Imam Abu Dawood from from this region, all of them are born and raised in this era. And in this time, Mumbai, nobody here is is equal. So they set out to hatch. And I'm in his early teens at the moment, behati performs the hug and says to his mom, I'm not coming home with you. See you later, Mom. I'm staying here. I'm gonna stay in Mecca, and I'm gonna master everything in Mecca. So he masters everything in Mecca. So they write a letter for him and they say go to Medina. So he goes to an Medina, right. So he's studying now, not just with, you know, average people he's studying with the

00:47:14 --> 00:47:28

best of the best. And on one occasion, one of his teachers says, wouldn't it be a great idea? If somebody just collected authentic had the rather than putting all the heads together?

00:47:30 --> 00:47:36

And he said, For 300, I said, Yeah, that's a great idea. I'm going to do that. So over the next 16 years,

00:47:37 --> 00:47:40

he began to curate, so haven Bahama.

00:47:42 --> 00:47:42


00:47:43 --> 00:47:54

there's an important lesson in that, it doesn't have to be your idea for you to achieve greatness with it. See, a lot of people they think, ah, you know, I don't have a great idea. Borrow someone's

00:47:56 --> 00:48:40

because that person who's talking about it and not doing it, is doing you a favor, and you're gonna do him a favor, it'll make him at least you know, chill. You don't have to worry about it. Sorry, I got this. Right. And that's exactly what remember how he does. He sets Upon doing it. And that's what great mentors do that, you know, you get to a place and you say, Well, look, I've done this and this, I'm not going to be able to I don't have 1516 years left, but he says it to a young man who's a sharp mind who's have swift learning who can then proceed forward and meet that great challenge. At the very end over there is the mausoleum of at the moment. behati and we're on screen 38

00:48:41 --> 00:48:41


00:48:44 --> 00:49:05

we are kundala we're honored to be able to teach in the masjid near any moment the hottie with the blessing of the Imam he comes and joins us this is one of the Imams met lots of 100 Allah have mercy upon one of them he just passed away actually six months ago. Also due to COVID met Lhasa penalty Allah have mercy upon him now.

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

And once again we said this is the macom of an Imam Al Bukhari. It is not the grave of a moment behati the great Beverly mammas Bahati, you actually entered down from here, and that of course is something that we were able to arrange access to. And, you know, descending down into the solemn place is a huge difference from what is seen. Outwardly, this is the grave of unimaginable ha far from the lights, the sounds far from visitors and flashes of cameras. And actually you're not supposed to take a picture but I got permission. I didn't break the rules.

00:49:50 --> 00:49:59

And what it says on the top of it is this is me mean of heavy if it says a little bit about his life and that you are to remember him

00:50:00 --> 00:50:45

Draw. And what we do when when we visit. The grave is that we remember the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where he said couldn't do hudna, he took a witch's narrated Mojave, and I give ijazah in that Id in that place in honor of unimaginable hottie and Mufti dinner of man, he was traveling to some Auckland at the same time, and Mashallah chefs are here he got the Baraka been downstairs with him, I missed out and hadn't Billa you know, fair inshallah you win some you lose some. And mostly, it's up to you dinner with Manny who is the Mufti of Pakistan at the moment, with the people that were there, they turn their back to the grave, because the Qibla is opposite to it.

00:50:45 --> 00:51:01

So the grave is behind behind you, and you make dua for the Imam. I mean, they're ready to die, do you think he does to it, inshallah, maybe in a future day, we can get that bubble cut as well of that heavy? This is three universities.

00:51:02 --> 00:51:06

Now, they're not mosques, the universities?

00:51:07 --> 00:51:09

Yeah, it's like, whoa.

00:51:10 --> 00:52:02

And really, the Muslims really go to study in places like that. Yeah. So whenever a Soltani came into power, or a felipa, or something, or in a meal, the first thing he did was, Hey, where are the people who need to study? What tools do they need? What books do they need? What translator do they have? Do they have enough space? How can I increase our technological advance? What are the things that are needed for people to continue pushing the envelope of science, technology, and so on. And you find that each one of the three incredible universities of course, it has a method attached to it, these were the patron tokens to the people of mathematics, mathematics, astronomy, and so on. So

00:52:03 --> 00:52:17

all Begg, which is one of the great astronomers of the era, who proceeded much of Western thought in some of his calculations and physics and things like that. A lot of the studies of

00:52:19 --> 00:52:59

calculus and mathematics are not calculus, mathematics, and algebra, all of these are developed in these areas. So at the top floors, would be the places where the resident scholar, the professor's were able to find residents, and their families would be given a home close to the university, but they would be given a personal residence so that if they felt they wanted to stay overnight, they could stay. And then they could travel to their family a short distance to be with them. In the bottom would be the faculty that they were masters in and would teach him. And basically, for you to graduate, you have to go through every door. That's so you have to be a polymath. You couldn't just

00:52:59 --> 00:53:08

be a meta medical, medically trained individual. You needed to study medicine, physics.

00:53:09 --> 00:53:10


00:53:11 --> 00:53:55

Right, you needed to go through all of the doors. And once you left the last door, you were allowed to go upstairs. So it's like you, you go, you know, you made it all the way downstairs. Now you can go upstairs, and then it would be a graduated process until you became an emeritus professor. So I you know, I saw some of the people who were graduating today, they had their hoods, and they had their capes. Where do you think they got that from? That's our tradition. Where do you get the the chair of philosophy, who used to sit on a chair and students sit on the ground. That was our, our system of education that has been mimicked and used. So these were, these are incredible

00:53:55 --> 00:54:14

universities martial law. And this is the place of prayer inside it. Now, don't be shocked when I say this, right. There's 18 kilos of gold that engraved the merab and the dome of that university

00:54:15 --> 00:54:21

18 kilos of gold. You can't chip away or anything, right.

00:54:22 --> 00:54:23


00:54:24 --> 00:54:45

But it's an astounding incredible breath law. He you know, you just you lay down and I did lay down just in the middle. And you just look up and there's this dome, and it's unbelievable.

00:54:49 --> 00:54:59

And to be able to make that your met Rob. Do you see what that brother or sister did? That's your job when you travel? Right. That's what you do. Shall I don't need to tell you again.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:01

That's the dome.

00:55:03 --> 00:55:04


00:55:06 --> 00:55:19

It's the size of like this hall. And it's like 35 meters above you. But the detail the vividness that that's a luxury, Panama,

00:55:21 --> 00:55:22

a lot of maintenance is located

00:55:25 --> 00:55:27

right on the wall.

00:55:30 --> 00:55:48

What you reminded of here Subhan Allah subhana wa halabi which is the final Hadeeth of Hollywood final draft that all of them will have been with us. And the people who designed you know, the epitaph of this wall they purposefully said

00:55:50 --> 00:56:30

remember the completeness of a lot don't remember the beauty of this. Like when you look at this, what do you say, Pamela? Why because it's meant to remind you that all of this he has you know, it's all of this has gone all of this is fleeting, and the one who built it can pray in it today, the one who built it can't buy it or sell it or trade it or or make any value or use of it. But the one who visits is the one who is to take heed to their own mortality and their own return to Allah subhana wa Tada. And we were honored to come to LA to be able to have lessons and to engage with our students their

00:56:32 --> 00:56:37

incredible sights and incredible buildings, instructors martial law about a man

00:56:49 --> 00:57:30

from upon the minaret, you kind of see the distant mountains of Somaliland. And I wanted to end our discussion about some often by kind of speaking about how Islam came. So I told you I put them up now bassy arrived but they were repelled and they returned and also haven't returned. And from the other Sahaba, who were there was a delight miromar some of the great famous lava, the light here I'm gonna for example, on their return trip, they returned through Azerbaijan and then it began to snow and they were snowed in for nearly six months like for the whole winter so there's the lug nut bathroom and Dean and he's like you know of the light here I'm gonna excuse me shivering in

00:57:30 --> 00:58:07

Azerbaijan, snowed in and teaching the Quran and who they are returns and says to a little bit of fog and then to to Earth man, if you're a fan advocate oma you need to save our own money, because we've entered their lands and these people they don't know our customs and they don't know how to recycle for and collect correctly. So make up for that I can take there with us. And that's where the whole on taking shape to be sent and copies master copies being made takes form from at these distant mountains is where

00:58:08 --> 00:58:52

the Muslims came in the era of Omar Ibn Abdul Aziz. Remember that as he is the grandson of interminable hubbub of your loved one, or would have not been as easy in his era, Islam began to be carried through trade through war through other means, to the far expenses. And when they arrived in some often the military general was a man wrote him up to lie, they will tell you that you're Muslim, and he was ordered to follow the tradition of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he is not to invade a people without giving warning without offering truth without offering peace without sending people to teach them faith. And the people in this land. It's not their first time

00:58:52 --> 00:59:30

to hear about Muslims, so they know what do we expect other cities further down have been laid siege to and war has been pitched between the Persians and the Arabs, so they kind of know what's happening. Cool thing about Muslim he seizes an opportunity. And in the middle of the night, because the people have some fun bait, assume the same battle tactics would be done by the Muslims. They didn't strengthen their garrison. So he walked right in without any bloodshed. And when people woke up in the morning, some funds had been sacked, but no one had been given warning that an attack was imminent, imminent, imminent.

00:59:31 --> 00:59:53

So one of the people of that area traveled to Damascus and then traveled onwards terminal disease and said the person you send to sack our land did not follow the tradition that you people practice. He didn't make a god he didn't send teachers. He didn't invite us. He didn't offer us peace. He didn't do anything.

00:59:54 --> 01:00:00

For tyverb new Muslim is summoned and he's put to trial and it's found that he was

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

guilty, he was ordered to return and to leave, some often return it back to its people.

01:00:08 --> 01:00:52

When the people saw this happen, after having lived with, you know, the Muslims for a certain period of time, they were shocked. And a vast majority of them, pleaded for them not to leave, and invited them to return and stay. And therefore that entrance into some orphans is one of those unique kind of cases. That kind of speaks about the expanse under the era of disease. And one of the reasons that Ahmedabad disease is referred to as one of the righteous for the fact after the era of the Sahaba is because of these kind of just rulings that he would issue Rahmatullahi on a

01:00:54 --> 01:01:01

rugs, rugs, rugs, rugs, that's my dear brother, Helene Santa Monica, honey, how you doing Effie? I know you're watching bro, Mashallah. It's good to see you.

01:01:04 --> 01:01:09

So, you don't want people sell you Persian rugs and not selling your Persian rugs.

01:01:10 --> 01:01:49

You want Persian rugs, you go to Persian people, this rug if you've ever come in, prayed with us at the Langford Islamic college is the prayer mat that I use for our move solo. And, you know, I came to buy you know, rugs and I'm like video calling my wife and oh my god, it's so cheap. And the ladies actually hand knotted like the ladies and men are hand nodding it so you, you see the product from beginning to end. And you know, this particular rug, I can't remember how much it was. in Uzbekistan, everything is American currency, by the way.

01:01:51 --> 01:02:39

So I came to purchase it. And the person who heard me speaking, he had lived in America, he heard me say to my wife, I'm gonna buy for the misogyny for our for our messages in the school. So when I came to pay, he said, it's, you know, half the price. And I had already negotiated, you know, a good deal on, you know, Egyptian like that. Mashallah. So I'd already gotten what I thought was a fair deal. And hamdulillah I thought it was going well. And then he said, No, I'm going to pay half you pay half. Tell the Muslims in your city that somebody in Uzbekistan sent them this. And I thought so canon law. It's just an incredible testament to the people it was back then. Obviously, you have to

01:02:39 --> 01:02:40

have the stroll.

01:02:42 --> 01:02:42

This is what I mean.

01:02:45 --> 01:02:57

Slow Motion people. Right? You traveled with me? You go slow mo Alright. Now there's usually a soundtrack to that. You got to do your Yeah, you got to do your you know, you got to do watch. Look at that.

01:03:00 --> 01:03:01

The roads that you see.

01:03:03 --> 01:03:04

You see looking at it.

01:03:06 --> 01:03:09

Where else are you gonna get this experience?

01:03:12 --> 01:03:12


01:03:15 --> 01:04:03

I'm gonna skip through a part two bajada and arrive at our I'm going to skip through the end of someone from an arrival. So remember, the party has traveled, he's left behind the photo. He's now in Arabia. He's mastering Qatif and now he becomes notable. So he's mastered Mecca mastered Medina, Master dmn mastered all of the Hejaz. And he arrives into LA, and he's put to trial. And the people say, you know, this guy he keeps you know, we keep hearing his name, his name, his name, we want to see does he know what he knows? So they begin to mess around with 100 narrations. And they put the chain of narration with a different statement of the prophets, I send them and mix it all around.

01:04:03 --> 01:04:18

And at the moment, behati is given 100 had the 1010 1010 by 10 different people. What's amazing isn't that he could put the heavy back What amazed the people was that he didn't take note

01:04:19 --> 01:04:56

of those who are narrating the Hadid by writing it down. So when he corrected the Hadith, he said, You said this, this and this, but the correct ending of the Hadith is what he said. And he matched back the 100 narrations. And at the moment, Mojave was therefore given a great honor to be the resident scholar of the people of Iraq, of the people of Sham of the people of Medina, of the people of Mecca, and he had more than 100,000 students who would narrate from him that had the

01:04:57 --> 01:05:00

the JAMA the authentic collection.

01:05:07 --> 01:05:27

There we are entering into one of the seminaries martial law, we would always try to be able to learn as well as teach. So when there would be classes we would try to attend, and we would be invited to share with the students as well. mowlana Ibrahim bomb was a wonderful, wonderful contributor. Talking about food.

01:05:29 --> 01:05:30

Have you ever had horseweed?

01:05:32 --> 01:05:33


01:05:34 --> 01:05:39

okay, don't don't don't back up a little nadie thism Bihari.

01:05:41 --> 01:05:49

Right. So I'm not saying it's like sooner or anything, but forcemeat is hella right. And the people have

01:05:51 --> 01:06:17

you're not going to travel to the hora not have the hottie rice. Do you know what I mean? Like if you've got a job, you know what I mean? Brother at the back, you know what I mean? You're not gonna go all the way to ohada and not have the hottie rice because that's those are the people who invented it. So I said look, we want to experience behati rice the way you people don't take me to that fancy gold seated restaurant. Let's get into the Mashallah

01:06:19 --> 01:06:20


01:06:21 --> 01:06:27

Yeah. Wow. So, the mojarra rice

01:06:29 --> 01:06:39

is called Sufi rice. Because for whatever reason they believe Sophie's eat the most. Yeah, they're the guys who just said fried and you know, so they call it Sufi rice over there.

01:06:41 --> 01:06:43

But then there's all of that.

01:06:44 --> 01:06:45

And now

01:06:47 --> 01:06:48

and those

01:06:49 --> 01:06:58

Mashallah, Allah, I said, I told you, you travel with me, Mashallah, we got to walk it off, but hamdulillah right, there's a lot of That's for me.

01:06:59 --> 01:07:11

So, I see the sisters are like immediately. Do you have hot sauce? Yes, do they have? Can I drown in hot sauce or something? It's actually really nice.

01:07:14 --> 01:07:31

But it's an acquired taste. It doesn't taste like chicken. I'm not gonna lie to you. But as you can see, they eat it with a lot of onion. And they'll take the meat, and they will put it in a broth. And then you will take the broth and put it on the rice. Or you can eat the broth with the mean.

01:07:33 --> 01:07:49

It's a wonderful, wonderful dish. It's got a little bit of deal, a little bit of onion. And you could almost imagine that that would have been the staple of a lot of the people at the time of the party. But I'm a lamb kind of guy. So yeah.

01:07:51 --> 01:08:03

lemon tea, lemon. There is not like lemon here. So lemons, there are like little oranges that are a little bit more citrusy than the oranges that we have here. And

01:08:04 --> 01:08:35

if you take it for me, I have never in my life had any hot beverage that has ever compared to the deliciousness of that orange lemon black tea that they serve in a bowl, right? It's not in the mug or a cup. It's in a little bowl. And and you're sitting there You're like a one legged brother. I mean, like, you know, go to the and you think your you know your way back to those days. You know what I mean? Right? If we're gonna give you that mug, and you're like

01:08:37 --> 01:08:46

that's it. And you're like, Whoa, wherever. It's amazing. Okay, lemon tea. We try I know I told you we'd walk but

01:08:48 --> 01:08:51

yeah, yeah.

01:08:53 --> 01:09:13

The mean add the pillars in the massages are all hand carved. And everything that relates to the method is something that they give a level of access to. So it's not just the hob in its ornamental design, but also the pillars of the massage in more food. Anyway,

01:09:14 --> 01:09:42

you know, also the pillars of the massages are all hand done. So what they do and it depends on the height, so they will cut a tree and then they'll match another tree so it's actually it's not one on top of the other. It's the bottoms are of opposite end in the middles are connected to each other. Does that make sense? And they will continue to grow it upwards to phenomenal heights and phenomenal ladies.

01:09:44 --> 01:09:59

As you can see there Mashallah. This is the bolo Majid, which is a place that was in operation and this was the mentioned where the Juma prayer outside the fortress of the hora would be done by the salon and the meaning of the time and the lobby.

01:10:00 --> 01:10:17

had also an opportunity to be able to teach there outside it is the main bathing pool the say and the main well outside the fortress area of Baja. So that you can imagine was from the times of a new moment will hottie before him and onwards, martial law.

01:10:18 --> 01:10:27

Inside the magic, you usually find enough ethnic African novena as one of the surahs that is regularly written above.

01:10:30 --> 01:10:51

And once again, it's a wonderful experience. This is at the fourth. This is one of the ancient papers of the most hot that was very first early sent to Bahama in Tashkent, they have the oldest one you'll see that at the end of our discussion, and a few minutes Mashallah, of course, you gotta, you know, I dress like that normally. Anyway.

01:10:54 --> 01:11:00

Some of the old plan, as you can see, this is a Walkman alamelu an insert.

01:11:04 --> 01:11:18

Some of the ancient artifacts in the fortress of bajada was destroyed when the Russians came, or parts of its well, but it was reconstructed recently, some of its parts of forts are still the same ancient ones of the past

01:11:19 --> 01:11:35

kahlon machine, which is the masjid that was rebuilt. So from a distance, if you can note this particular manava This is the menorah that today takes on the name of the menorah, vihara or jingis Han.

01:11:36 --> 01:11:38

On a fateful day,

01:11:39 --> 01:12:21

Genghis Khan was a military genius, and the Muslims of the time had grown to excesses of wealth and opulence and so on. And when Genghis Khan sent 60 traders with things to trade, somebody said to the Amiga, Genghis Khan's people are spies, do not send them back they will have known our fortifications, so he ordered the be executable. And that was a bad mistake. Because for many years, Genghis Khan left them to their own he he had other concerns. And when that happened,

01:12:22 --> 01:13:02

Genghis Khan decided to read Bahasa mon pond and that region, mahalo has mountains that surround it, and there's one entrance really through a valley. And as you get towards that valley, you can be seen from a distance, it's flat all around, except these mountains that surround and bring it in protection. So the Muslim army knowing that there will be retribution, they assembled inside their own territory, knowing that whoever came in, they would have to come through this narrow ravine. And as we go by Boston training, we actually traveled through that very same area, the only way to go in and out of that area.

01:13:03 --> 01:13:47

And Genghis Khan, he decided that he would entrap them. And he ordered he a small, modest battalion to come and tease the Muslim army out. So he sent a substantial amount, but not a large amount. And they made a daring raid, and the Muslim commander at the time, he said, this is our chance. Let's pursue them. Let's go out into the open desert. Let's attack them, and he ordered the army to leave the protection of the mountains. And as they exited the ravine, they were encircled out into the open desert, and 400,000 men were decimated.

01:13:48 --> 01:13:59

They were the garrison, some modicon mahato, all of that area had come to try to put up a stand. And when that happened,

01:14:00 --> 01:14:17

the sacking of behala became inevitable, and at fajita prayer, Genghis Khan led his troops into this very same machine, and under the shade of this very same minerals. And when we entered

01:14:18 --> 01:14:28

into the whole of this, Majid obviously was not as ornamental anything of this was rebuilt in the 15 140 I believe.

01:14:30 --> 01:15:00

He entered it The man was leading the prayer when they knew that Genghis Khan was there means there's no soldiers, there's no need to put up resistance. And that man began to read the prayer, and he was beheaded while in so that another one step forward, another one step forward, another one step forward until everyone in the congregation was put to death. Everyone in the city was executed, and every building and every library and every

01:15:00 --> 01:15:07

Home and every farm was ordered burn, except for this manado.

01:15:08 --> 01:15:46

And that's the only thing that survived. Now there's two stories, the cultural story is Genghis Khan, he looked up to see how high it is, and his helmet fell off. And he said, You know, this is the only thing that ever took my helmet off. So leave it standing. It's a nice story, I doubt it, it was probably because it's a great vantage point to see an enemy from a faraway distance. So we put his soldiers up at the top as signalers if there was a rally or a, you know, a comeback that was being organized against them. One of the interesting things about this pinata is that when this whole fun was getting a commission,

01:15:48 --> 01:15:58

the first one that was built, it fell over. So this little God ordered the death of the engineer, it was a tough job back then.

01:15:59 --> 01:16:02

So another one was given the job,

01:16:03 --> 01:16:07

didn't do a very good job, fell over.

01:16:08 --> 01:16:11

Not a very good end, the third one

01:16:13 --> 01:16:22

says, set a foundation and didn't build on it, and said, I'm not going to build on it for one year until it settles.

01:16:23 --> 01:16:31

And after it, I will build and on the end of the year, he began to order and organize the building. And halfway up,

01:16:32 --> 01:16:33

there was an earthquake.

01:16:35 --> 01:16:37

He's like, man, so

01:16:39 --> 01:16:53

he chose the verse from sudut units. What am Cisco Luckily, for that cash, if I level in level, if a long was to command that you be hard,

01:16:54 --> 01:16:58

there is no one that can repeal the command of God except him.

01:17:00 --> 01:17:05

Well, I rod that leaf ugly, and no one can return his favor as well.

01:17:07 --> 01:17:13

So he wrote that as a Jew at about halfway through like Yale Law, please.

01:17:15 --> 01:17:38

Now, in his mind, he had no idea that the remaining Muslims who remained alive in bahara or would then come back and visit would look and see this minara and see this writing, the only writing that said, if a lot was to test you with a calamity, none can take it away from you. But he

01:17:39 --> 01:18:14

and that became the Constitution of the Muslims of that land. That when the ruler Matt, were asked by Genghis Khan, why have I been brought out to your people? They said, because we turned away from God. And they took inspiration from this a moment of pause for myself in you. This monument commemorates the well it's still a well, by the way, were all of the bodies were thrown in by Genghis Khan, after the Imam and others were put to death.

01:18:16 --> 01:18:17

Across from this

01:18:19 --> 01:18:21

is the famous

01:18:23 --> 01:19:10

mean out of medvedeva University. MediaHub is Abdullah, a Yemeni he was a Yemeni merchant and trader who arrived in this land about six 700 years ago. And there weren't many universities that had restarted a game, and he decided to open a seminary. Since then, it has remained even in secret teachings. All of the movies of Bosnia of Turkey, have a lot of the European and of Damascus study there and teach them. So the current Mufti of Bosnia, the ones before him and so on. It is a beautiful, beautiful school that maintains that same tradition, but now it's not the teachers who live upstairs it's the students.

01:19:12 --> 01:19:12

Things change.

01:19:14 --> 01:19:22

The students live upstairs and the classrooms are still the theological places.

01:19:23 --> 01:19:35

Our students Mashallah are those who traveled with me, we had a wonderful time. And the students they are loving, engaging with us. These are all of the past movies who graduated from there.

01:19:36 --> 01:19:36


01:19:38 --> 01:19:41

in Mirada, what you find

01:19:44 --> 01:19:59

are the best and brightest of Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, most of these stands who speak that took Czech language. This is where they come to study. They are fluent in Arabi. Bye

01:20:00 --> 01:20:34

year one, it is a condition for them to memorize the whole and buy to be accepted. It's the one of the students there. He was studying his Jews for the day. There they are. And martial law, they have their ping pong table. Because what, what else do people do right? And to hand a lot, it's an incredible place of learning, of respect of dignity and of study. We're in the final leg. Mashallah. And we're in Tuscany. And we're going to speak about almost half a man.

01:20:36 --> 01:21:27

This complex houses a most half that is claimed to be sent by with management firm. The debate, of course, is Is it the one of Earth man or is it a copy of it? The debate isn't Is it like a forgery? Or is it something like 100 years later? This is a moose hub that's written by Bissell having the tambourine Mike pen by this will happen, why is it one of the seven? Or is it a copy of one of the seven. And one of the great blessings of course, whenever you travel, this is a ship Mohammed Obama, and by the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala, was able to catch up with him in Tashkent, when he was visiting, he was there to teach the Haitian behati to give ijazah to this top scholars of Sahara

01:21:27 --> 01:22:12

behati in it, and, you know, when I he doesn't, of course, remember me, but many, many moons ago, when I was a young man. And I would travel, I sat in his lessons in life and Bahati. He was commissioned to teach in a US heart for a period of time and the love that I was there for those very same three months. So when I saw him, I reminded him of it. And, you know, I can always see is like, really, like, I'm gonna meet this guy in touch again. So I told him, Do you remember that joke you said. So that's when he laughed. He goes out you have a quick demo on you were with us. Because there was this funny occurrence where he kind of got rattled, there was a cat that it's only medium,

01:22:13 --> 01:22:20

a cat job. And they were filming this cat literally jumped, bounced off.

01:22:21 --> 01:22:23

So I said, Do you remember the chef?

01:22:24 --> 01:22:35

The cat? Ava, could you were with us? I was like, Yeah, I was with you. So I stayed with him as much as I could. And I wanted to share this video.

01:22:36 --> 01:22:42

Because it's important, I guess, for people to see the place of our dilemma in our lives.

01:22:44 --> 01:22:45

So this is him leaving.

01:22:58 --> 01:23:00

So my job is to get his shoes.

01:23:05 --> 01:23:06

And that's an honor.

01:23:08 --> 01:23:08


01:23:09 --> 01:23:13

And I want that to be something that you kind of see. And remember.

01:23:15 --> 01:23:20

His son is there, of course, his son knows that, you know, will take good care of his father.

01:23:21 --> 01:23:23

And he was on a state visit.

01:23:33 --> 01:24:14

These are some of the top scholars of Uzbekistan. This is one of them who had this it was because then he's a graduate also of Medina University. He did his master's in us, huh. And he was the one who coordinated the invitation. And ever since then, whenever we do the Hadeeth tour, martial law, it's always a great pleasure to connect with him. This is you know, it doesn't do it justice. So this moves hot is about the size. So one of the cheats. So there's two sheets is the size of the table that's in front of me. So you see this area. So that's one sheet. And there's another sheet. And this is actually sort of an hour off. I remember it was sort of a lot off because you could make

01:24:14 --> 01:25:00

it out. And you could see that the there are the homeless stuff is not in one volume. It's actually in three sets. And the other two are in a climate controlled room. You are not allowed to take photos, but who's gonna say no to the guy who was with Chef Mohammed I won like seriously right. So you know, I was we were able to close the doors and my group was given a little bit of special access. And there's a recording of it on my YouTube page if you want to, to watch the discussion that we had about the moose Hof and its place in our history as Muslims. I'm going to end with the Quran. So as you can see, there's, you know, we were at least I

01:25:00 --> 01:25:11

100 150 meters. It's a phenomenally large Masjid. And I hope you can hear the clarity there's no microphone. This is the kind of design of the you know the the massages up until now.

01:25:17 --> 01:25:21

So I'm just reading with three people. I'm just speaking of this same level of voice right?

01:26:11 --> 01:26:12

martial law.

01:26:13 --> 01:26:48

I wanted to conclude with the life of aluminum Bahati, his final days and final journey. After having established himself, he was invited back to his homeland, and emammal Bahati was received back into the Hata with love from all of its people. And it may be heart of the center of learning because anyone who wanted to study the sin of the prophets, I send them a man admittedly humble, we travel there, you know, anyone who wanted they would go to baja and go to baja

01:26:50 --> 01:26:51


01:26:52 --> 01:26:54

of the other odema

01:26:55 --> 01:27:16

began to pollute the ears of the salon. And they said to him, Buhari is more reputable, and people hear him in his mejlis is and we're worried that he can cause dissension, nobody's attending my classes, nobody, you know, they're all learning from one person.

01:27:18 --> 01:28:13

So this little fun, a young man says to me, Mum, and behati sends a messenger, I would like you to give private lessons to my son's, the future rulers in the palace, and as is the habit of their odema, that they do not mix with royalty and politicians. And that has always been a standard that was set for us by the prophet Muhammad Sallallahu, it was said to them, that you don't become compromised due to familiarity and familiarity, that your main pursuit is not to be known to these people, and that they get allegiance from you and you are aligned to them in a way that would make you unable to question their unethical behavior. And you could see that this is a systemic problem

01:28:13 --> 01:28:58

in many parts of our Muslim world today with nepotism and all of the other isms, right? So an amendment behati politely says, I teach in the magic between this time and this time and this time, and this time, and I will I will be sure that people have certain measures, they will open for your your sons to come, he doesn't say no, I don't want to come to your uh, you know, I don't, I don't play that. I'm not going to be sold out like that, I'm not going to sell my soul, I'm not going to sell myself for dollars, I'm not going to sit and just teach you, the student as the student and the method is open and we will make room. So the other teachers who do give lessons become highlighted

01:28:58 --> 01:29:05

as being people who are filat, you know, going a little bit too far in that regard.

01:29:07 --> 01:29:08

So they create

01:29:09 --> 01:29:10

an issue

01:29:12 --> 01:29:59

of theology, claiming that an Imam Al behati does not believe that the Quran is the word of God, but that it is something that is created by God. And you might say, what does that mean? It's actually a big thing because I mean, my dad stood really fiercely against them on a Tesla, the, you know, the the monitors a lot of the time they wanted to make the hold on as an object that isn't, you know, something spoken by god that was eternal, that it was something that was there and leaves and why is that something that's significant? We'll have the foreign has a life that means it was living and then it can be killed. And of course, that's problematic for us as Muslims. So remember berhadiah

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


01:30:00 --> 01:30:56

doesn't say anything like that. And he actually writes a treaties in response to them, but they keep nagging away at the same time until an amendment behati on the last day of Ramadan, decides that he will leave his ancestral city of the hora and travel to his family who had moved to towards some other fun. And in a small city called carta, a small little township on the day of read, an Imam Al Bukhari makes a dua that was answered, and he said, Oh Allah, I have found difficulty on this earth, but your rough man in the heavens is what is best. And he says, if he was saying, oh, Allah, I, I do not want to lose my faithfulness and my adherence to the truth, I do not want to be compromised, Oh

01:30:56 --> 01:31:23

Allah to be with you is better than to be here. And he breathes his last breath in that city. Now what's incredible about it, is that of course, his grave after it's dug, and he's buried in it. There is the authentic narrations that musk emanated from it and envelop the city for 10 days. And all of these are in the history books, even a few writes about in others. But what's incredible is what happens in our common era.

01:31:26 --> 01:31:40

When the Russians arrived, and the communists took over, they began to root out all signs of Islam. So the people of Somaliland and this land, the he did the grave have an amendment behind

01:31:42 --> 01:31:50

and they made it into a rubbish heap. So they began to take rubbish and just pile it all around. And then they

01:31:51 --> 01:32:01

cleaned it out and built a warehouse and put boxes and other things. 40 years later, hiding it all throughout this communist era.

01:32:03 --> 01:32:05

The Indonesian President

01:32:07 --> 01:32:20

is set to visit Uzbekistan, that region, which was part of the Russian expanse and he says I want to visit Emmanuel Buhari.

01:32:21 --> 01:33:03

Now like Who's that? We know Timo lane we know you know each other Who's this will hottie he's a religious figure. They weren't aware of them. He said I know in our history books he's buried near Somaliland in this area. There are a number of Indonesia have said this is where he is. So before his arrival, the you know, the Russians and they're looking all over the land China fine. So whenever they come to ask the Muslims are like all they want to destroy it. They want to take his body they want, which is what they did to Timo lane, they took the body of immunity more, and they took it to Russia, St. Petersburg, and they, you know, desecrated the body and then return the bones

01:33:03 --> 01:33:45

later, they wanted to do experiments and so on. So they said, No, we don't we don't know anyone named behind. Until finally they came to understand that there was pressure from a Muslim country asking so they said, Look, this is where it is. But we can't give you you know, when we're going to die for this place, right? We're not going to let you just do whatever you want. So they said no, we're going to rebuild it. We want it to be presentable. We're going to put a garden around it, because there's a president coming to visit. And so Pamela, since that day, the place of an Imam and behati became known again to the people and not hidden. And the lesson that I shared with the people

01:33:45 --> 01:34:30

who traveled with me at that moment was that if you have a secret with a law if you have a place with a lot, that not just in your life, but also after your death, a loss of Hannah went to Ireland maintains his promise to you, you have to Lahu levena Amman will be totally fair but Phil hieratic dunya was an asset, that a law's legacy with us in his commitment to us is not just in this life, but it's into the next life as well. And as a loss of heaven with Allah honored to lead Mammon, Bahati in this life. Allah honored him in his death. Allah honored him in his burial Allah honored him in his protection and the law honored him by maintaining him as a reason for us to be familiar
