salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:05--> 00:00:23

Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa The early he was Sufi he woman weida Mohammed, Abdullah Ali Abdullah Saleh, slim some Allahu Allahu Allah earlier sotheby was sold him. We're going to continue in shallow with the works of at the moment where we were looking at the first volume of an image more.

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

And we're looking at the chapter of the importance of busying oneself with learning about Allah and His messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and learning how these things can implement themselves and be implemented in our day to day life. Now we spoke about the virtue of knowledge we've mentioned a few statements of the hold on

00:00:46--> 00:00:54

and we're going to continue with a few statements from the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which is the mentor journeyman. nawawi. He says

00:00:56--> 00:01:07

that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as reported from sadness, agony, sir the Euro, the Allahu anhu that the prophet SAW I sell them said to IE radi Allahu anhu.

00:01:08--> 00:01:18

For one law, he by a law here, Ali, meaning to you, yeah, Ali or others who follow in this example, power law, he by a law, like the law who became

00:01:19--> 00:01:25

that if a law was to use you, as a source of guidance for anyone,

00:01:27--> 00:02:14

how you like I mean, Henry Nam is better for you than to attain the greatest wealth that you seek. And of that time that great wealth was a female, read back camel, that was 10 weeks or 10 months pregnant. That was the greatest form of wealth, you know, you have a camel, and it can produce children or offspring that you can sell. So the prophets I send them says, it's like in our context, it's like saying, it's better for you than to become a millionaire. It's better for you than to have whatever dreams in this worldly life you seek to accomplish. It is better for you that Allah uses you meaning as a tool in someone's guidance. We need to pause here with this Hadees for a second, he

00:02:14--> 00:02:54

Dahlia is of two types. The prophet SAW Selim says, Yes, de la houdek. If Allah was to use you, for he Daya, in other places we know called inner who the law the guidance of a law is the Buddha. Here the messenger Mohammed's is lm is talking about a law using you as a part of his guidance. Could you imagine being chosen. There are lots of Hannah who want to add from amongst others in mankind uses you as the tool as the key to someone's heart that unlocks faith, that darkness changes to light.

00:02:55--> 00:03:22

That shift becomes a man that recognition not knowing Allah becomes surety of faith, because Allah chose you to be that key. And that light that is shown upon a person to lead them to faith. And therefore when we look at us as an oma, we are all in the balance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:03:23--> 00:03:37

and therefore every righteous deed that we brought, we call it that we do we refer to it as soon that someone before us did it. What does the word pseudonym mean, in our body? It means a path that people follow.

00:03:38--> 00:04:09

Some sand, nothing fishy. It means a path that people say, hey, there's an alleyway this way, Come this way. Don't cross this side. This is the student that this is the marked, clearly lit path. So everything we do in worship of Allah has to be the Sunnah of the messenger, Muhammad Sallallahu. They said, You can't bring your own thing. So therefore, we always talk about student Nestor, Nestor Nestor. Now, why is that important? Because everything you do, is really

00:04:10--> 00:04:37

given in reward equally to who Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Who taught you what to do. And equally we see that everything taught to the prophets I seldom was in following those who came before him. So Allah subhanho wa Taala says to our Navy, Mohammed in the Quran, what I need to be amelita Ibrahim hanifa Yuya, Mohammed and those who follow you follow the path of Ibrahim alayhis salaam.

00:04:38--> 00:04:45

Follow the path of those who came before you. When we come to pray. gibreel taught the Prophet how to pray.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

When we come to fast the instructions of the Quran, when we pray, thought are we how we recite the Quran which came before which all of these were instructions given to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

One to One in However, he is not given to the ability to speak with his own volition, or his own insight into the matters of faith. It's always in Houma. Illa what you knew her, it is a revelation that is revealed to you Salalah while he was in them, and therefore when we hear this Hadith, it should really inspire us to being from those who seek to attain something of knowledge that we can pass on to someone else. How beautiful it is for a person, that they stand in front of a law on the Day of Judgment. And they taught a child hula, hula, hula, you might ignore this and say, Oh, you know, it's insignificant. No, this is a third of the Quran. It is a third of our theology. You have

00:05:48--> 00:06:42

to look at it from that perspective of the words of the prophets why Selim la Tachyon Amina roofie never underestimate a good deed you do. It's those little things that we do have bitch, habitually recurringly that lead people to a path of righteousness that are the greatest forms of salvation for us on the day of judgment? For you to answer someone's question, or to remove someone's harm, or to bless someone with joy instead of sorrow, or to share insight into some confusion, or to be insincere in advice to someone that leads them to a correct path, instead of a wrong path. You are favored by Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, you have now become an instrument used by Allah in the

00:06:42--> 00:06:46

guidance of others. And therefore the Prophet Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:06:47--> 00:07:15

he would make the Doha Allahu Medina, overlord guide us. If you ever thought about the prophets, I sell them making this door. This is a man so I sell them who gibreel comes to you with the Quran. He is the source of guidance for humanity thereafter. And yet even he is asking a lot for guidance, a lot of Medina where Divina, let others be guided by us. salallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:07:16--> 00:07:46

So this is an important step in our recognition of the virtue of knowledge, whatever you have, keep in mind that whatever you transmit to someone else, it is counted for you Even if you have forgotten of it, even if decades have passed even have lifetimes of us. Even if you have been buried that more than 100 hundreds of years such as any moment now where we here we are giving him reward

00:07:47--> 00:07:49

better for him than if he was alive.

00:07:51--> 00:08:08

him being in his grave and us recounting his lessons is better for him than if he was to live that eternal life up to now, he would have more joy in the ARCA from this than what he would have experienced if temporary joy in this life.

00:08:09--> 00:08:44

He continues so after he quotes this Hadith, he then shares with us the next Javi which is the purpose of our discussion. He says what our What do we have an IV hoity toity Allahu anhu. It's narrated from Abu hora. And the Hadith is Muslim, that the prophets I send them said men are the one who makes our illa houda. To to a matter of guidance, the one who calls people to the right way, can Allahu meenal algebra to him is the same reward mithila or Judy mentality as

00:08:45--> 00:09:12

in equal amount to the one who follows him in that which is righteous law young Khazali coming at him, and nothing will they be deprived of their righteous reward with a loss of Hannah Montana, the one who calls people to good, everyone who practices it, he receives their reward while they lose nothing of that reward themselves. And then the Prophet gives the other side of that coin.

00:09:15--> 00:09:44

Woman de la balada the one who invites others to a path away from the truth can Allah whom you know if he will receive in sinful measure the same amount of what they have followed him in? Just like you invite people to he Daya those whose actions push them away from he Dahlia, earn the scenes of it, and therefore we need to pause here once again.

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

Many of us focus on the Tao of instruction, we say, you know, this is good, this is bad. We're talking to people, but we forget the dour. I want you to think of this word on

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


00:10:01--> 00:10:25

someone's on good and you do something that repulses them from the good that they were on, someone's coming to the Met someone's coming to attend a talk like this. Maybe a sister who doesn't want a job Perhaps she's coming. And then she comes into register hamdulillah all of our sisters were one of them looks at her and gives her a you know, a dirty

00:10:27--> 00:10:47

gives her that look that unwelcomed on our and our she hasn't said anything, hasn't made a word, just the look that made that sister uncomfortable. So instead of walking in and spending a few hours with us and hearing something that will bring me diarrhea.

00:10:49--> 00:10:51

She goes back to her car and goes home.

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

And our

00:10:55--> 00:11:16

dour it's not just a come there's a good class, there's a good Come with me. But it's also projecting yourself in a way a code of ethics, a code of Islam that permeates in all the words you say in all the actions you perform, that leads people to Allah Subhana who wants to either Could you imagine if you were a philosopher, I sell them.

00:11:17--> 00:11:36

And you see these people who come to me man, and who still have the remnants of Jamelia, even some of the great Sahaba with one Allahu Allah him. Sometimes they would have a mistake. And it's a it's a human nature. Here's the Prophet standing on his minbar on the day of Joomla and he's giving advice.

00:11:38--> 00:12:13

And one of the men of the tribe have an else there were two tribes in Medina else and cousin Raj. One of them says, Yeah, rasulillah if that man was from HUDs Lodge, we will do this and this to him. So one of the people of Hazzard Sahabi their leader, he stood up and he said How dare you talk about my tribe like this? They're both believers. Were law he if you tried, we wouldn't let you do it. Allahu Akbar, Salah Swati homefield Masjid, the voices raised while the Prophet is on his members Allah Allah

00:12:16--> 00:12:17


00:12:18--> 00:12:30

Could you imagine if the prophets I send them did not deal with people with Petey and mercy if he just said, what kind of ignorance is this? All your life I've been telling you get out of my Masjid.

00:12:31--> 00:13:08

You know how you know in some of our Messiah, who are you to get out, don't come back here anymore. And then come to the magic of the prophets of Allah while he was sending them full of hostility. The Hadith isn't Muslim. He's come for a fight. He's not coming for any reason. And he waits for the time of prayer. And in the middle of the masjid of the prophets, I send them in front of his noble face, in front of the face of the Sahaba he begins to urinate as the qumola Allah honor you. Could you imagine someone coming here and standing right in front of us in the cameras, brothers, men and women, men and women in the management of the province I sell them.

00:13:10--> 00:13:13

And looking at the Prophet, he does this, the Sahaba they stood up to kill him.

00:13:15--> 00:13:17

They said they were gonna tear him apart.

00:13:19--> 00:13:20

And the Prophet said, Daryl,

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

let him finish.

00:13:24--> 00:13:36

Is something different? Hold on. Now, this guy who thought okay, as soon as I'm gonna get ready for a fight, he didn't think he would have to continue until he's done. Right? So he's like, Oh,

00:13:37--> 00:14:02

so he finished and the profit lies lm said to the same men, not to him to the same men who got up to stop him. He said, Go get water and you wash it. Mahatma the prophets I seldom breaks them breaks within them. That rigidity, you clean it. And he takes the men to the corner of the body.

00:14:04--> 00:14:14

And he tells him Yeah, Heather, I don't know your name. Whoever you are. Yeah. Heather. Heather Beatle law. This is a house built on worship for God.

00:14:15--> 00:14:28

let out. Don't do this again. Because you see those guys. I stopped them once. But if you do it after I talked to you, you're on your own. let out Salalah while he was

00:14:29--> 00:14:59

the man says before that incident, I came wanting to fight. I hated no one more than Mohandas Lysander. But when he did that, I loved no one greater than Mohammed bison. So that meant me. He said Allahumma O Allah at the Sydney one Mohammed in general. Let me and Mohammed alone go to gender not these guys. They wanted to hurt me a lot. He was suddenly so the Prophet laughter

00:15:00--> 00:15:14

You and I laughed. And he said by yocto was something so vast a lot of mercy. You made it too small. Just mean you. So the men he's still upset. He said Allahumma Academy, one Mohammed agenda.

00:15:15--> 00:15:31

And whoever else I'm not going to say and then right, he leaves it up to Allah have mercy. So Allah reveals to us describing the Prophet bison, when we couldn't afford to leave and call them for

00:15:33--> 00:15:56

Dr. Mohammed, if you were Stern, without pity, without mercy, they meaning your Sahaba I will back aroma. Osman Ali, these great Sahaba these icons of faith, if you were Stern, and inflexible and without pity, even these ones would have separated from you Salah lohani wisdom

00:15:58--> 00:16:22

and our just like you call to good there are those who lead people away from good not because they tell them don't read this hadith and think or someone who tells you to go to a disco know, someone who becomes a barrier to another from Medallia. It could be a word, it could be a look, it could be an action, it could be a statement. It could be a feeling you put in their heart

00:16:25--> 00:16:32

and therefore it leads people away from the truth that a law seeks to make you a tool to lead them towards it.

00:16:33--> 00:17:16

The next Howdy, Alabama where he continues Have you heard about the Allahu anhu also reports that the prophets I seldom said either matter be Adam in copper Amadeu in lamb in Salah when a human being passes away the son of Adam, his deeds that he can earn that he himself can earn our cut. Because some people misunderstand this hobby. They say only those three thing No, it's not only those three things. It's only those three things that I after I die can continue to earn but other people can earn good deeds for me. My children can do some something for me, but you can do something for me or for others, and the one who has passed away. They themselves cannot earn good

00:17:16--> 00:17:59

deeds except in three ways. Saw the cartoon jharia a charity that continues to be useful after they have given it. They build a Masjid, they dig a well, they've done something that is a benefit to others even after their demise, our alimony on tap away, or knowledge that remains useful for others that they practice. You teach something something to someone that even though you no longer live with them or know them or speak with them, that they continue to practice that thing that you had taught them. And when an employee hanyalah or a young or a child who is raised upon righteousness that maintains supplication and invocation in your heart for them.

00:18:00--> 00:18:49

And I saw the Allahu anhu said Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam man holography Paula villa in the Prophet said the one who leaves his home, goes out in search Pallavi lane in search of the sacred knowledge. For who if he said de la he had a yoga, he remains involved in the path of a law until he returns back to his home. That's a wonderful statement of the Prophet Mohammed seisen. You sitting me and are you sitting here today are engaged in the path of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, if our intention is to benefit and prosper ourselves with the knowledge that leads us closer and closer to Allah as diligently, every moment you remain, even your idle moments, even having

00:18:49--> 00:19:02

dinner even going to here and there, even the traffic and going and coming you are in an act of worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala feasibility law in the path of Allah.

00:19:03--> 00:19:08

Another wonderful Hadith is the Hadees obioma or the Allahu Akbar,

00:19:09--> 00:19:15

where he says fabuleux lyerly me, Allah, Allah de fogli Allah Edna.

00:19:17--> 00:19:25

And this hadith is the intestine by many of the scholars of Hadith, that the virtue of the knowledgeable

00:19:27--> 00:19:34

The one who learns about faith and practices it in comparison to just those who learn

00:19:35--> 00:20:00

to just those who practice without learning is like the virtue of the Prophet Mohammed Sai sell them to the least of us. I want you to consider this example that the Prophet gives seisen. His virtue, to the least of our own map is like the virtue of those who learn about faith in comparison to those who just worship Allah worship

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

Allah, but without knowledge.

00:20:04--> 00:21:00

the worship of Allah is an essential of our life. But learning about how to worship Allah is more virtuous than just worship. And therefore the prophets I send them sets for us this precedent that we must learn enough about our faith to become not just worshippers, but intelligent worshipers understanding worshipers of our relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada. And the Prophet continues in a law her one mela equateur who will SMRT will, a law His angels, the inhabitants of the heavens and the inhabitants of the earth had to nambla even the insignificant and that walks by unnoticed fee hojicha in the depth of it then and home under the ground that you don't even see it. What

00:21:00--> 00:21:16

happened route and even the fish that swim in the oceans and lakes, lay you follow the Muna Allah Mohali. minassian. How do they make prayers of mercy for the one who teaches good to others? Allahu Akbar,

00:21:17--> 00:21:42

Allah, His angels, the inhabitants of the heavens and the earth, the ends beneath the ground, the fish in the sea, invoke a loss of Hannah who went to Allah for the one who teaches people Good. Now I want you to consider the words of the prophets I send them. He's not just talking about earlier man, the one who teaches someone good more I live in Nashville

00:21:43--> 00:21:53

and therefore seek to be a tool that brings about good for other people. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in another Hadith he says

00:21:55--> 00:22:35

that those who when you see them, they remind you of a law. You know, sometimes you meet someone. And just because they have a little bit of taqwa your conversation is not about poverty. It's not about stupidness it's about something that you know, has some maturity and has, these are the kinds of people that the prophets I send them is talking about, that just being in their presence. It prevents you from sinfulness. It prevents you from doing idleness, that in and helps you in the way of Allah. One more Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Hadith of the Allahu anhu. It's narrated by the amendment to the movie, and this hadith is deemed hasn't it's a good Hadith,

00:22:36--> 00:22:44

the prophets lie Selim says, A dunya meluna, this worldly life has a curse placed on it.

00:22:45--> 00:23:00

malroux Murphy has the curse extends to everything in it. So this world has a curse. And this curse touches everything in it. Except for for Illa Allah except for four things

00:23:03--> 00:23:07

in the crew law, except the remembrance of Allah

00:23:08--> 00:23:13

wamalwa, who and second what helps the remembrance of Allah.

00:23:15--> 00:23:44

So the remembrance of Allah, what aids and helps others remember a law when Lehman went motor Alabama, and those who are endowed with knowledge, the scholars, and those who are seeking knowledge, those who are in the process of learning about Allah. Now I want you to understand this word you can say brother Yeah, that's that's a terrifying idea. And it is. Why is the Prophet saying everything is cursed except for four things?

00:23:48--> 00:23:54

Does that mean this water has Lana? Does that mean the clothes? What does this mean?

00:23:56--> 00:24:15

This worldly life has a curse on it. Curse is everything in it, except for for the remembrance of Allah. What helps the remembrance of Allah, the scholars and those who are learning about Allah? How come it's only four? What it means

00:24:16--> 00:24:28

is that everything other than these four things, when you use them there, there's no there's no benefit after they've come to waste. You eat some food helaas it's gone.

00:24:31--> 00:24:32

It's finished.

00:24:33--> 00:24:43

There's no there's no permanency or eternal Miss for it. Nothing remains. It's gone. It's finished. Now, I need to

00:24:46--> 00:24:52

explain a very essential belief that we have as followers of our Prophet Mohammed Lysander

00:24:53--> 00:24:56

that the life that we live my dear brothers and sisters

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

when we come out of our

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

grief when we wake up.

00:25:03--> 00:25:09

And I use these words intention, when we wake up in our grave.

00:25:11--> 00:25:26

It will seem like the 6070 years we've lived with a dream that they were a mirage. And the law tells us in the form of an we're going to whisper to one another. We're standing there on the Day of Judgment.

00:25:27--> 00:25:29

You have to have a tuner in a home.

00:25:31--> 00:25:32

How long were we asleep?

00:25:34--> 00:25:38

Carla, I'm 3130 katanya luminova. Maybe a day or two?

00:25:39--> 00:26:02

The life you live. And in fact, when you calculate it, it's true. The Day of Judgment is 50,000 years. The 80 years that you live is like an A day or two in comparison to the 50,000 years. You're gonna come out of your grave and you're gonna say God will member Athenaeum Mr. Kadena sorachi a scene who woke us up from our thing What happened?

00:26:04--> 00:26:08

This whole life as a law tells you in Soraka no

00:26:09--> 00:26:29

it's like you are living in a desert and when you come to that thing you thought was real hot either Java who lemmya Jade who shy you come and you think I've attained happiness? It's a mirage for when you have a lot anger but he finds a lot there for what for what a server

00:26:30--> 00:26:44

everything in your life there's always this concept Oh the grass is greener if I have two valleys of gold what is the profit say we will look for third one. You have two valleys full of gold. Where's the third? Let me look over that hill.

00:26:47--> 00:26:50

Single brothers. I can't wait to get married

00:26:52--> 00:26:53

00:26:55--> 00:26:55


00:26:59--> 00:27:27

Especially when you thought it was green and horses running and pastures and flowing water and all my clothes will be iron the new needs who needs my mom anymore? I have a wife now and

00:27:29--> 00:27:33

sisters that get made Oh, I can't wait to get married. We're gonna talk all the time.

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

I will have a partner

00:27:38--> 00:27:40

a law club then they get married.

00:27:41--> 00:27:41


00:27:42--> 00:27:49

You don't find what you want everything that you married the men for or you're married the sister for changes.

00:27:50--> 00:27:56

Ah, Luca Mashallah. She's so beautiful brother. Yeah. Yeah, but with yours?

00:27:57--> 00:28:08

and the husband Oh, yeah, he's got a great job. He lost a lot. I love his job. He's gonna have a good income. Angela. I hate your job. It keeps you away from me. I don't see you you're traveling too much. But that's why you married me. Oh, my husband he dresses show shark Mashallah. I love the suits. All of a sudden, why you dressed up? Who you trying to impress?

00:28:35--> 00:28:41

Who's there at work? What's that? Right? There's always this thought.

00:28:43--> 00:28:52

And then you come to it. And you cross that bridge, and you find that it is not what you thought it would be. It is not the way you thought it would be.

00:28:53--> 00:28:57

Except for agenda. It is better than you thought it will be.

00:28:59--> 00:29:30

And therefore a lot of names, the themes in general with the names we have in the dunya and you're gonna say we used to have this in the in the junior we used to have bananas tall. And then you say, Oh, it's not like that dunia that Brown. Brown, mushy bananas. No, this is Jenna. different to what you think better than what you estimate. The dounia Natasha

00:30:00--> 00:30:11

Runa if you are seeking the worldly life, know that it's cursed, it's temporary. It will never be forever You will never enjoy it the way you thought you will enjoy it.

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

The money you assume will not give you the joy that you seek how many wealthy people cannot live with themselves? How many wealthy people cannot have anyone live with them? You look at it. Well, you have so much money. Why can't you find happiness? It's not money that makes you happy.

00:30:31--> 00:30:52

You look at some very destitute, poor people. Happy Family. Kids are sleeping in in the same room with a happy close knit loving tender, because the dunia has that curse on it. Why are these four things removed Victrola What does the word decree mean?

00:30:54--> 00:31:01

Everything that reminds you not of God that you will stand in front of God. Vic

00:31:02--> 00:31:29

it's not remember Allah. No. It's remember you're gonna stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala for that kill in the cloth and meaning remind them because the reminder benefits the believer remind them that goodness stand in front of Allah soprano Donna, remind that husband remind that way for a mind that son remind that daughter, remind that teacher? Remind that minister remind them that give

00:31:31--> 00:31:52

when you say Alhamdulillah it's Oh Allah I acknowledge you. So that when I see you on the Day of Judgment, don't write me from those who were negligent in remembering you. You're gonna stand in front of Allah Subhana who went to Allah and Vic one Manuela who and what helps the remembrance of Allah. Sometimes

00:31:53--> 00:32:06

you need someone to remind you to the remembrance. Sometimes the thing is in front of you, but you don't see it. We had a young child that we just prayed Salatu janaza upon about the law.

00:32:09--> 00:32:11

That ilaha illAllah

00:32:12--> 00:32:49

Vic, that's Remember, it reminds you to remember Allah Salatu janaza Yes, you're remembering Allah, but it remind you, that's gonna be you. That could be your child. That could be your loved one. If not, you could be someone you care for it tequila. Keep aware of a loss of how to what to honor. So all of a sudden the pain that was experienced by your family becomes for you an area from Allah assign of your need to be ready to meet a loss of hand I want to add that's the

00:32:51--> 00:32:54

and that is what helps you to remember a lot.

00:32:55--> 00:33:22

So the brothers who printed off the material, the books that were written, the people that speak they are engaged in the remembrance of Allah and helping others remember Allah number three, the odema because they're the ones you ask about how to protect yourself when in the next slide, you come to the Imam you say is this halal or haram? I don't want to do harm. Why? Because I'm going to stand in front of law.

00:33:26--> 00:33:39

What are the rules in and the one who seeks to bring good for others? By being able to be asked about how to protect myself before standing before Allah subhanho wa Tada.

00:33:43--> 00:34:18

Then Allah Mammon never we after quoting a few Hadith of the prophets, I seldom which we've narrated some of us, some of he begins to talk about the statements of a seller. He says, What am men Now remember, now he uses this wonderful word and so the footsteps or the traces of the cellar of those who came before us, those who walk that path that the walk prophet walked as the prophets I seldom walk the path of Ibrahim his Sahaba walked his path, the Tabby in walk their path, the tavera tablet in walk their path, we walk their path, right.

00:34:20--> 00:34:30

He says they said earlier the Allahu anhu make note of this wonderful statement of the great Mojave Valley. He says katha be Larry Michelle often

00:34:32--> 00:34:46

knowledge shows its virtue. You should know the beauty and the wonderfulness of knowledge and yet the human law you know that the one who doesn't have it pretends to have it.

00:34:48--> 00:34:55

The one who doesn't have any knowledge. He wants people to think he has knowledge she wants people to think they should ask them that question

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

while you're for who either Lucy better

00:35:00--> 00:35:11

Like, and when people ask him or her they don't know, but they just feel joy that people are asking them because it means all they think I'm knowledgeable, more knowledgeable than them.

00:35:12--> 00:35:22

What can I be generally them? And how evident is the dis fortune and the evil of ignorance?

00:35:24--> 00:35:35

And yet about a million who men who were happy that the one who is ignorant pretends they're not. Most people think oh, yeah, I know. You sure you know? Or you think, you know?

00:35:37--> 00:35:42

Many people are going I know you sure. I'm not sure. I think I'm sure.

00:35:45--> 00:35:59

So there are four levels of knowledge, write this down in child law. general knowledge, we're not talking about Islam general, there is what is called the knowing something with precision in is knowledge that is precise.

00:36:00--> 00:36:01

It has dropped,

00:36:03--> 00:36:07

then there is the opposite of knowledge is ignorance.

00:36:08--> 00:36:13

where a person knows they don't know. So that's an ignorant person.

00:36:15--> 00:36:21

In between knowledge, knowledge and ignorance, there is a one

00:36:22--> 00:36:24

one is

00:36:26--> 00:36:29

unable to separate,

00:36:30--> 00:37:14

indistinguishable things, meaning someone is unable to separate the ambiguous of things. It could be this or it could be that I asked someone what's your birthday? This is my birthday. That's knowledge. You ask them what's brother? Yeah, his birthday? I don't know. That's ignorance. You asked someone else he says, Oh, I think maybe now that's one. And Allah says in the Quran, we're in a vanilla yoga Nieminen haka. One cannot ever be made to be equal to hock one. It's just thought it couldn't be true. And it could not be true. Fourth is Jacqueline Maura cap

00:37:15--> 00:37:17

compounded ignorance.

00:37:18--> 00:37:26

Jasmine almora. Cap what is compounded ignorance that someone doesn't know but thinks they know.

00:37:27--> 00:37:32

That is the worst level of ignorance. Someone who is just hated but thinks they are.

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

Someone who thinks they know when in fact they don't know. And therefore the Imam they would always say knowledge is to know you don't know. Ignorance is to think you know,

00:37:51--> 00:37:53

zero minutes alive how to creaky.

00:37:57--> 00:37:59

More avidly jabin

00:38:00--> 00:38:22

the Sahaba of the prophets I send them and when we talk about more other than Egypt I want you to pay attention to this personality. The prophet SAW Selim says as a narrator by the man and Buhari one Muslim who's an amine Alba if you're going to learn the Quran, other than me, other than from himself, Sai Selim learn the Quran from four people at the law if you must,

00:38:23--> 00:38:27

but the Allahu Allahu wa obey niqab

00:38:28--> 00:38:33

Salim mela other who de fer Salim

00:38:34--> 00:38:35


00:38:36--> 00:38:45

and number four more avec New Japan. These are the four scholars of the Quran at the time of the prophets I send them who are they ignoramus rude

00:38:47--> 00:38:48

Obi niqab

00:38:50--> 00:39:41

Salim novella about how they refer the friend and compatriots of Abu hanifa. He used to be his slave but was freed, Salim and Mojave bleachable are the Allahu anhu when the Prophet died while widney jabel was just nearing his 20s he was still a teenager, so he was a young men. But even though he was a young man, the prophets I send them sent him to the people of Yemen, as their governor and instructor in the Koran and in the sciences of Islam. And in the authentic hadith of the prophets I send them says to more ad, Allah manasi Bill halali Well, horombo dibny jabel after me, no one knows about halal and haram more than what are the new gentlemen. Right? So he's not just a regular Sahabi

00:39:41--> 00:39:44

so I want you to hear these words and pay attention to them.

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

While the ninja Bell says the alimony he orders you learn this knowledge for ineta alumi healing nahusha because when you learn this knowledge you will develop

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

And awareness of why you should fear Allah. What is the difference between how

00:40:07--> 00:40:11

fear of a law and hush hush here to law?

00:40:13--> 00:40:28

Harsha is it's a logical understanding of why you should fear Allah. Why your fear Allah is emotional. When you see a funeral, my your heart softens up, you're afraid to meet Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:40:29--> 00:40:58

But when you study knowledge, and you know what you will face when you meet a loss of Hannah Montana, then you understand why you should be afraid to meet a law in a way that is sinful in your life, life dealings and nearly and dealings. So the difference between a house minella fear of a law which is emotional all of us will fear Allah, but sometimes it's not based on a logical assumption logical understanding. Harsha.

00:40:59--> 00:41:12

yaksha owner of the home they are fearful of a law because they understand why they should fear Allah subhanaw taala therefore they're the alum The one who studies at the one who learns

00:41:26--> 00:42:14

One MOBA karate he has to be an IT study is plus we have a law. How many Hadith and verses of the Quran have we recited already, we're in the 10s close to 100 narrations and statements of the Prophet Solomon verses from the Koran. By the end of our discussion today, we have met recited many words of the words of a law his navy and his hava with one wire lane and while he of de la sala will attempt to sleep so study it is your glorifying Allah subhana wa Tada. Well, back to Andrew Jihad searching for it is a struggle. It's not easy. It's not easy to take time away from the family and children on a Saturday afternoon. It's not easy to spend money to come to learn. It's not easy to

00:42:14--> 00:42:30

dedicate time and effort and energy. It's not easy when some of the content is a little bit unstimulating and boring or I heard it before. So things are not easy. It requires Miuccia Prada. You have to struggle for them even

00:42:34--> 00:42:39

teaching it to the one who does not know it lemon law lembu sadhaka

00:42:40--> 00:43:00

teaching it to the one who doesn't know it is a charity. You've given someone something that you have been you've given them like a charity like building a water Well, you've given someone knowledge, and therefore the prophet SAW Selim says it's at that same level, it earns your reward even after your death. It's like a saga to Giardia.

00:43:01--> 00:43:20

Whether you hula le Cordova and sharing it with people worthy of it and knowledgeable of it draws you closer to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. When the scholars sit together and the Imam sit together and the students of knowledge sit together, only good comes from that moment.

00:43:21--> 00:43:44

And imaam Abu Muslim and salani and Imam Abu Muslim he says, method hula hula if you are the method in new Juma if it's a map, the example that we find of the scholars on earth is like the stars in heaven. They are the ones you use to find guidance in the darkness of the desert and the night.

00:43:48--> 00:44:00

Let's hear now an Imam Shafi he goes on to the word Allah ma'am and no he goes on to the words of Allah Mammon Shafi. He says Carla shafia you refer to la de la palabra.

00:44:02--> 00:44:06

To seek knowledge of galuh masala tea nephila

00:44:08--> 00:44:16

to sit and study is better than to be engaged in private worship, voluntary worship.

00:44:18--> 00:44:35

For some of us with our righteous Nia today, it is better for you to sit and study these words of Allah and His Messenger than to be next door in the masjid praying to Allah. These are the words of an Imam Shafi Rahmatullah Haile Wakanda. And he also said

00:44:37--> 00:44:59

lies about them for the Abdullah been following him nothing, nothing. After fulfilling the obligations, the five prayers that for yom there's a car that has nothing after the obligations the far eba is more virtuous than studying your faith than studying Islam than studying the religion sent to our nebia Mohammed

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what color this is one of my favorite statements.

00:45:06--> 00:45:11

parlor. Men are our dunia family hibbeler in

00:45:12--> 00:45:21

woman are all the family he was the one who wishes to have the delights of the worldly life. Let him learn his faith.

00:45:22--> 00:45:39

And the one who wishes to have the delight of the akhira let him learn his faith. Allahu Akbar, the one who wants the dunya study Islam, the one who wants the after study Islam, it is a no lose proposition.

00:45:41--> 00:45:44

You will never lose by learning more for an

00:45:45--> 00:46:07

it will only profit you in the dunya you will never lose by learning the Hadith of the messenger Mohammed's I sell them it will only profit you in the dunya it will only raise your status in Africa. All of the prophets would come to their people with simple words. They would say to them yeah, a whole new set of tribes said it.

00:46:09--> 00:46:11

Soil said it. Yeah.

00:46:12--> 00:46:26

It started a few of them. Remember a lot of making stuff up. You'll see the summer article McGraw Hill let the heavens open with rain I know you have too much in KL. But think of think think of Saudi Arabia.

00:46:28--> 00:46:31

The skies will open with their rain.

00:46:32--> 00:46:45

What you did and a lot of strength will be your strength. Could you imagine where you walk on this earth and a law becomes the hand you strike with.

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

A lot become as a prophet so I said Lem says, he becomes the you the eyes you see with you see the dunya with taqwa the hand you are with the feet that carry you is blessed by Allah subhana wa Tada. How is that possible? You become acquainted with Allah near to Allah Subhana who went to Allah, men are are the dunya Allah He will in the one who wants the dunya learn.

00:47:15--> 00:47:21

Learn about our our faith in religion, and the one who wants to ask Allah let him learn about his faith.

00:47:23--> 00:47:25

Walk Allah Allah Manisha very also said

00:47:26--> 00:47:59

Muslim men lay your head buried in the one who doesn't love knowledge for the hierarchy. There can be no good in him in reality, the one who doesn't find learning a new idea, a new surah the meaning of a surah they already know who doesn't find that wonderful and engaging and something stimulating to them. Let them know that goodness is out of them. They don't have goodness really in them, even if they claim it.

00:48:00--> 00:48:10

The one who isn't doesn't feel tenderness from learning about along the messenger Mohammed's I tell them, there is something within them of goodness that is missing.

00:48:13--> 00:48:44

He then continues and says further jaquan Bay, Nicole avena who Malika hawala sold off, and when you sense that in someone, that they are apprehensive when it comes to learning about faith, they don't want anything to do with it, then never tie yourself to them or have friendship with them. Don't be too intimate in your relationship and friendship with them. Because there corruption and having good Miss removed is something that will affect you walk on a limb of the shelter he said

00:48:45--> 00:48:59

and the moral atolla knowledge is shiver Lee chivalry for a person. You know how everyone you know sister they say all women in general are I like when he opens the door.

00:49:00--> 00:49:14

You know when he healthy this and that? This is shibori right? This is the Art of Manliness. Right as Muslim men. There's an art to gentlemen Miss right. This model

00:49:15--> 00:49:30

is that is that Salima Misha, he says when you learn, it develops within you those ethics of conduct, it becomes instinctive in you to look away from what is haraam.

00:49:31--> 00:49:57

To give your attention to what is good to be in the service of the one you need to guard what you say to to be protective of the weak more than you are in seeking to accommodate the mighty and the strong. So we've developed within you this model and this manliness and chivalry that we all seek amongst us now of course, the sisters

00:50:00--> 00:50:14

Ma'am, and now we were going to take a break in five minutes in chat law, just a little walk around break 510 minute break and shut law so we can stretch and so on. But I wish to end this discussion with his statement

00:50:18--> 00:50:19

where he says

00:50:21--> 00:50:31

that the prophets I send them said, Man, you read the law who will be higher on you for play COVID Dean? Well, hiree dunya will after

00:50:32--> 00:50:49

he concludes this section by saying the Prophet said, and we narrated the Hadith and while we're in Bukhari and Muslim, that the one who is blessed and the one whom Allah wishes goodness for him, he gives him a firm understanding of this faith.

00:50:50--> 00:51:00

This hiree this goodness is in this life in the next. And he explains to us that this life, the good in this life,

00:51:01--> 00:51:03

is in every facet.

00:51:04--> 00:51:54

When you become a person who learns about the meanings of the verses of the Quran that you have memorized, for example, and you find ways to implement them in your life and inculcate them in the activities that you perform and pass them on to others. Just that act alone brings into your world and into your existence. Baraka from Allah Subhana, WA Tada. All of a sudden you become chosen from amongst others who surround you. Now Baraka this hydrea, this goodness that descends upon you, that is missing from the one who is not attached to learning of their faith. This Baraka is three things. Make note of this insha Allah Baraka when we say, you know, someone gets married, you say

00:51:54--> 00:51:55

barakallahu, Li,

00:51:57--> 00:52:01

right? may Allah put Baraka blessing, it's usually translated as a blessing.

00:52:03--> 00:52:12

In our soul, I would say allama baddeck, Allah, Mohammed, Ali, Mohammed, right, what's Baraka? What is what is this mean? That Okay, three things.

00:52:14--> 00:52:19

And this is the goodness of knowledge in this dunya before the alpha Baraka three things, one

00:52:21--> 00:52:23

is that what you have,

00:52:25--> 00:52:27

is greater than what you think you have.

00:52:29--> 00:53:14

Most of us we look at something and we say, Oh, it's finite in its amount. We don't understand that supernaturally and beyond the realm of this worldly life, that Allah is in control of it. So all of a sudden, a plate in front of you, you say, Oh, that's not gonna be enough for the three of us to share. And then you do the string of the prophets, I send them you say, Bismillah, you eat with your right, and you eat from what it's in front of you, and your knee is clean, and the people you're eating with, it's clean. All of a sudden, that meal that you looked at it, thought was not enough. It gives you more nourishment, and more satisfaction than if you were to eat it alone. Does that

00:53:14--> 00:53:35

make sense? That's Baraka. That's from a law. It's not measurable, it's intangible. That which was a limited amount in your estimation, is increase in an unknown measure by Allah Subhana Allah to Ana in terms of your usage and satisfaction of it. Number two in vaca

00:53:38--> 00:53:57

is the harm that was soon to befall you is averted. All of a sudden, you say, Oh Allah mathematically feasible JT. Oh, Allah put Baraka in my wife. And maybe Allah had written that she would you know, slip and hurted me or a backer something you're doing.

00:53:58--> 00:54:47

It averts a harm, it doesn't add anything to your wife, no extra pounds or anything. All that happens is that something that was going to befall her an illness that was going to strike her something that was going to come between you because of your drop of Baraka? It averts that harm, unknown to you. Right. So that's why we say to newlyweds barakallahu li may Allah put Baraka for you. What I like an on you were Gemma avena come and put Baraka between you, right? Because you want every facet of their life as an individual, as a couple, that there is an increase and a prevention of harm, right? The third level of Baraka and the third meaning of Baraka

00:54:48--> 00:54:49


00:54:50--> 00:54:55

that those around you benefit from you without you doing anything.

00:54:57--> 00:55:00

Those who are with you, you did

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

do for them anything but all of a sudden because you are in their presence, they are protected or blessed on account of nearness to you. And therefore Allah says about Isa Isa says with john and he moved out or can aina mckuen Wherever I am, there was Belka there was protection wherever I walked, wherever Mohammed II send them was there was protection. The prophets I send them said Amanda to at least

00:55:27--> 00:56:09

as long as I'm alive with you, I protect you that the jail won't come as tsunami won't cut Nothing will happen to you. I am with you. So Lola while he was in Baraka, his presence had Baraka and therefore in his illness, his final illness sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, Isha would put his hand on his own chest, and she would recite the last two sutras of the Quran. She said, I was seeking the Baraka of his hand for himself. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. After the death of the prophets, I send them as his narrated insight and Bahati. Some of the hair of the prophets I seldom was kept by his wife, who miss Salah. And whenever someone got sick in El Medina, and they couldn't find the cure,

00:56:09--> 00:56:39

they would come to oma Solomon's house, and she would take the hair of the prophets I send them and put it in a cup of water, and they would drink and would immediately get batcher some Allahu alayhi wa The early he was, he was selling them. So his physical presence and his nearness to others, and his life and his time with them was a Baraka and a blessing for those who live and in our times, you find that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah causes knowledge to be a protection for others.

00:56:40--> 00:57:02

I leave you with this hadith of Abdullah Abdullah Masood, where he says the prophets I seldom said the one who recites ayatul kursi in his home before he or she sleeps, it protects men now, they tell who was out or who. It protects his home and his neighbor, his neighbor sitting at home watching TV,

00:57:03--> 00:57:24

but because he recited ayatul kursi it has that protection of him his home and those who surround him. Those who are nearest to him May Allah make us a source of Baraka for ourselves and others whatever that one and in 100 Lillahi Rabbil alameen Subhana Allah homovanillic eyeshadow Allah Allah Allah and Africa to be like, we're gonna have

00:57:25--> 00:57:43

will We'll see you back at oscillates 454 411 or 417. We will we would like to have 45 minutes before the ask. So if you can be back no later than 330 inshallah?

00:57:44--> 00:57:58

Yes, so 15 minutes, have a little walk around 15 minutes and we will start fourth at 330 sharp in sha Allah. And we will continue until 411 or 410 be in the land tada salamati from Allah tala.
