Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or bad. Now we're in our final session with our discussions of some of the elementary stages of the discussions of dating and knowledge. And the journey of seeking that sacred knowledge according to an amendment never always guy to benefiting from an alien, which is the introductory chapter of a much more of an Imam nawawi. And we spoke about the first category of knowledge which every one of us must know, which is our acquaintance with a law and what its limitations are and the moment that we separate our acquaintance with a law from delving into the things that are spoken of by Allah subhanho wa Taala
that are beyond our understanding and our imagination.
He also spoke about the realities of will do the realities of solid the realities of the realities of the Hajj, the things that are pertinent to our day to day, objectives and obligations in life, must we must have intricate knowledge of them as they arise. He then continues and says, malbay when nica as for the laws that relate to buying and selling and marriage and divorce
so the Imams have said, he says, yet I know Allah, Allah men are all that who lumen it is something that is stopped in accordance to the one who seeks further knowledge in it. So if someone's going to get married, and they want to know what what my contract, what can I stipulate in it what I can't, therefore, it becomes on the need to know basis. It's something therefore that becomes obligatory upon them. A husband who intends on divorce, for example, can not just do it haphazardly, they have to have some insight and some clarity on to what are the things and objectives of divorce, what the grounds for it are, and so forth, and so on. Same with the sister who's seeking Hola, and so forth.
It's not a knee jerk reaction. Rather, it's something that is knowledge based, and based on an understanding of what is the word of Allah, what is the student of His Messenger, so I sell them and how it was understood by the great imams. He also continues by says, way Alexandra, who it is a must for each of this is from the categories that we must know manifest now your halo
to know what is deemed halaal and be able to distinguish it from that which is clearly hot on because the prophet SAW you sell themselves in the famous Hadith, which we all know which is also the fifth in a moment Nemo is 40 hobbies collection, and hello Albion while horombo beyene halaal is known, her arm is known between them are the doubtful things, but those two halal and haram must be easily identifiable by the one who knows meaning Matt Cody, while mush Ruby, while Mel boasts, he limits it, in fact, in particular to three things what we eat, what we drink, and what we wear. So a sister must know the rules of hijab, a brother must know the difference between halal and haram when
it comes to food and slaughter and what is permitted and what isn't. It's not just something that can be run. Remember, we spoke about those four things, knowledge, ignorance, and in between them Islam? I think it's not enough to say oh, I think once you have a question about something halal or haram that relates to little three things, food, drink, and clothes, it's not enough to say, Oh, I think it's halal. You now must become prepared and ready to delve and search for an answer from a Mufti or someone more knowledgeable in you, that relates that knowledge to you in a coherent and clear manner. And that's the method that is the opinion. What can you ask me Charlotte and Lisa, and
how to live with your wife. Now, that's,
I don't know where you're gonna go for that. But you're gonna have to ask someone somewhere somehow right? How to accommodate and live well with your spouse. In particular, he limited to a man knowing how to live with his wife. Now these are when we read these words, sometimes we miss out their value.
It's not obligatory for a woman to know how to live with her husband in the sense that it becomes it's much easier for a sister to develop that level of trust and accommodation with with the men in her life. But Muslim men are in a prove a point of responsibility. It's not just enough to say oh, we co exist together, or we have we live together or she's my wife. You must know in ticket intricately
What her rights are what her duties, what are the duties, you must afford her? While she does not have to know the same for you in that detail, is that does that make sense? You are responsible for what are the limits that need to be set. And therefore the profits I sell him when he speaks to the people in the day Hey, J. Hodge, he says is supposed to be nice. Treat your women well. He doesn't say to the women treat your men well. Right. So the sisters already are ready for it rather be careful now. It's
enough another Hadith that is poorly understood. The prophet SAW Selim says Allah to Holy cottman villa. The woman was created from the rib he was created from Adam her work from Adam alayhis salam
in a carpenter who if you try to straighten that rib it will break. people misunderstand this hadith allameh nawawi clarifies this Howdy. He says that because of her rip is bent. It doesn't mean she's crooked, which is a mistranslation, you read the English books, what does it say? The woman is
made from a rib and the rib is crooked, which means like she's crooked. Like she's not straight. Know what it means is she's created with delicacy, that if you try to hammer her if you keep repeating things, if you keep badgering or abusing or you're gonna break her, you're the one who's at fault, not her for being created that way.
Does that mean does that mean? Does that clarify a little bit? It's not it's it's the Prophet telling. Sisters know exactly what it means is the prophets lie Selim saying to the Muslim men, don't be overbearing not he's not saying the woman was created crooked. He's telling you. Don't be harsh. Don't be abusive. Don't be forceful, because it's not gonna work. It's impossible that it will work.
It's impossible that a man by shouting will change his wife's mind. It's impossible with violence that a man will find love with his spouse impossible. You cannot have it. So the profit is saving you the hardship. He's telling you. Listen, your wife is not like you can't iron her out like a piece of metal. It doesn't work. She's someone who needs to be dealt with and spoken to and catered for in a different way than you would with another man. See, my brother Robbie and I we have a problem. We just have some words together. What's wrong with you? What's wrong with you? color, okay, we love each other. We're happy. Okay, let's go play some basketball or something. Right?
Let's go do the house. It's over. But with the sister is not the same, especially with your wife.
It's different. Why did he talk to me that way? He hurt my feelings. Right? It's now and you find a times with the sister. It's no longer about what happened. But how she felt one of the things we talked about in terms of sort of QA, we do a section called The Art of Manliness. It's actually my next course. Next time I see you probably maybe next year, the course will be called The Art of Manliness how what every sister needs to know and whenever a brother needs to know. Alright. And a part of it. We talk about the character of Musashi Salaam as a man right how we were how moves I was a leader there lost in the desert, what he does, you know, all these kind of things. And one of the
things that's key is that for many brothers, we assume that because the conversation went and nothing happened, that it's forgotten. Sr helaas. Oh, we had the argument was two weeks ago. No, the argument was two weeks ago, but the emotions are still very much present. She's still thinking about it. She's laying there next to you. And she's like, Yeah, I remember what you said. Five months later, you do something little. You didn't park the car, right? Or you forgot to pick something from the store. You never care about me. Remember what you said, from this year, last year, year before what you want me to have my mom and on our wedding day in all the whole story comes out, right? So
the prophet SAW Selim, he ordered the men to know how to live with their women but doesn't order the woman to learn how to live with the man you're responsible. So at the moment, now, when we confirm this, he said part of the physical you must know to be a man a husband, before you get married. You need to have the talk. Someone needs to sit you down and tell you this is what is important in your life. These are the things
Things that are necessary.
What can a camel a charlatan how to live with your women?
In Canada who's Elijah if he has a wife or if he's about to get married? Well, who and and the rights that are endowed in that regard Karla chef, Mama Sha three, one of her meaning the people who are of our madhhab Allahu Allahu Jamia al.
What are parents responsible for now this is under religious obligation of knowledge. This is in secondary knowledge. What does the Father What does a mother What are they required to teach?
Well, Omaha mothers fathers and mothers dallimore Allah have mercy hard to teach their young children meaning pre pubescent it is not enough to wait until that you feel Oh, they're going to understand things better. No, it becomes obligatory in stages from their young age to begin to teach them
Massa Italian or let him tell Gulu what will come to them once they are at a level of maturity. So, your child needs to know what is taharah before they are obligated for to perform to hotter. They need to know the rituals and the rights that we perform before they arrive it this is a well formed, it is an obligation is it an obligation upon the child or the parent? The parent, right? So now you're not just responsible for your education but you're responsible legally, spiritually, ritually religiously, for your children's education. So when a father or mother does not fulfill the religious training of their child Well, in the metal hub, and according to a Lima, Misha very and
all of those who follow in the path, they understand that you have committed a sin. It is massiah that is of a higher religious order that you have neglected and obligation for drying up personal obligation, as personal as the other obligations that you fulfill in worship of Allah.
You have neglected and essential duty in your relationship with Allah. So what are we responsible to teach? Thank you, Allah Who?
Allah actually now only ma'am. And never we change the word from an up well, to the word el Whalley, the governor, because I with my children, and like the key to his country, look at the precision of his words. Look at the fifth. He's no longer now talking about father and mother. He's saying no, the father and mother now take the role of a governor in the life of their children, you are a rally. So when the prophets I send them says couldn't look him raw and all of you is responsible. He's not just talking about the king or the little pond or whoever. He's talking about a father in his home, a mother with her children, a teacher in his classroom, and the Imam in the masjid. He's
talking about those who are given responsibility from that duty. And when they become Lally, they are the ones responsible for their children. You are Lima who at the hora was Sala, was sung whenever we have to teach them to holla, Sala siyam and all those obligations while you are grateful, and to teach them even before they're at an age of obligation to remove Xena while Lula was Sarika to teach them equally, the sinfulness and the prohibition of premarital activity, of adultery, of homosexuality, of a study of theft and usurping others property will surely be midscale. And anything that intoxicates will tell you, well, Riba
and lying and cheating and backbiting others, all of these become obligations. So if you have not sat with your 10 1213 year old son or daughter, I'm not saying you sit with them and you say, Okay, here's what you need to know. But taught them the way I just showed you remember that will do the essence of its meaning. It's a comprehensive system of life. It's not just rules and obligations. This is Hello. This is how long it's showing them in your conduct, approving what is in their conduct, protecting them from that which is sinful, all of the Imams in our era. They tell you that a father who does not protect his children from viewing on television, that which alludes to the
haraam has fallen into this
So when you rent a movie and you're watching something sinful,
you're watching TV or you permit for them something sinful, that does not show them that this kind of relationship, this kind of habit, this kind of behavior is not our culture is not our faith is not acceptable in our religious community, our broader community, then you have fulfilled that sinful behavior between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala. When
we ask Allah Subhana Allah to grant us protection from this Allahumma amin
also, when you refer who to instruct their children,
and Bulu, that reaching pubescent and reaching that puberty, where a person becomes obligated fitec leave,
that that begins upon them a new mode of life. One of the things that we sometimes forget, is that we forget to prepare our children for that boundary, that we forget to teach them that as soon as these lines are crossed, you're no longer just, you know, little Akhmed your little armor. You're now a man before a law, you're now a woman. Before a law, your word has to count. Your actions have reasons and statements behind them must be verified and fulfilled in accordance to your vows in your statements, that is taught to you by a law and taught to us by Allah through his messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So, you must explain when that boundary comes, that life has changed.
Now that there is an obligation that is set upon you and train them for it.
He continues to say
what can I do ballet another female II It is also obligatory to look into one's wealth,
and to see how one spends it on one's family and children. And how one fulfills their needs, in that which is best upon them. For it is something that can earn them a reward between them and Allah subhanho wa Taala and the best of wealth that can be spent on their, on their children who early on were and to to and to send them Leah Taka who is a devil to spend on your children, the greatest dollar or ringgit that you can put in your children's life is to put it as an investment in that which will teach them the Koran and that which will teach them and that which will teach them ethics and Adam, right. Those are the greatest investments that are the Mammon nawawi pushes us towards.
He continues and says also from the obligations that we must be aware of
what delila ladadika What would you tell me I will add the CLR colita Allah Yeah, Johan la Vina Amano, COO, coo sakumo alikoum, narrow and the clear evidence from the Quran that it is an obligation upon a father to save his to educate his children about the halal and haram all the things that we have spoken about is insalata to him or Allah subhanaw taala says, Oh, you who believe poo poo sakumo alikum Allah, save yourself and your family from hellfire. It's not enough to save oneself. So if a man in his home says I'm gonna pray, but you guys, I told you to pray you do whatever you want. It is He has not saved himself, he has destroyed himself. It is not enough to say
I told you you do it on your own, you now become responsible for their fulfillment up to that age of what?
up to what age?
puberty. Now, this is important at the moment now where we he talks about a Sahil the young, because don't get confused, and say, Oh, well, my dad didn't teach me Yeah, you're 25 years old.
You're supposed to do things on your own. You're a person now. No, it's your parents responsibility up to that age, where now you become responsible. And therefore you see in the Koran Allah shows us this in the tragedies that were experienced by the prophets of Allah Luth alayhis salam, a new Elijah Salaam, their wives married to prophets rebelled and were destroyed. You his son, his son, this believed in a law and got off the ship of salvation and drowned in front of him. His own Son, his his blood and tissue. You don't say how could the Prophet of Allah know not you know, his son didn't listen to that he died No, because it's
reached what age, an age of obligation. Before that age of obligation knew I was giving everything he could to teach him about the truth. Once you reach that level where you are now accountable for yourself, and once family has given you the father and mother, the wealth of your life has given you everything that you need. You're responsible of yourself. Do not ever look at someone and say, Oh, look, their daughter 18. They're not wearing hijab. No, she's her own person. Don't look into yourself and say, oh, look what's happened to my life or my family or my children? No, it's your responsibility from a young age to set the rules and the limits and the tone and the halaal and the
haraam. But once people reach a level where they are oblique oblige between them, and a loss of Hannah Montana, it is between them and a law. Right? So therefore, there's this clear wording
that is used by the amount of noise so that there's no confusion in that matter.
Aliya rhodiola, and this is a wonderful statement, if you can make notes of it in sha Allah, Allah, God, Allahu Allah. He says
about this verse, save yourself and your family from jahannam manna, the meaning of this ayah as taught to us by the prophets is a lump and the Moo hum teach them in their young age magazine June ebrahimian. And now that which will save them from Japan, teach them about is still fall about Toba about solder, about students about how learn, teach them the things that they can use to save themselves from the from jahannam will have the who have our hero area. And this is the apparent outer meaning of the ayah. And this is the meaning of the words of the Prophet Mohammed so I sell them colloquium raw in all of you are responsible for that which is in your care, which you have
duty of care over, what could you do homeschooling and right at
the second level of knowledge, so that's the first those are the obligations knowing a law knowing sold on knowing the obligations of worship, teaching our children, knowing about the names and attributes of all those kinds of things we must know the second level of knowledge,
it is to learn for dual keitha that which is an obligation upon the community, that if some of the community fulfill it, and others don't, then it is accepted from everyone in our community, you must in our community in your community here in Kuala Lumpur, there must be people who are dedicated to memorizing the Quran in its entirety and leading the prayer with it. There must be people who travel abroad Leah Taka who begin to learn the fifth of this religion. If everyone stays and no one goes, every one is responsible.
Everyone is held accountable. But if some goals that meet the equilibrium and meet the requirements of the community, it is accepted from everyone in sha Allah.
So what are these things that he mentioned? He goes if I'm at Dena homina illumishield ie to learn that which will obligate upon them, their religious studies on well Hadees where alumi Hema will soon one fifth one Aqua Luca three, learning the language and the morphology of the language and so forth. When my artifactory was ill, Hades will each man will fill out and knowing what's what is agreed upon in the community and where there's disagreements, all of these things come into that second set of obligation. Others he said they went to the opinion where they said
that it is an obligation upon the community to also meet that worldly needs. If you don't have enough female gynecologist, you need female doctors. If you don't have enough female teachers, you need female teachers, male teachers, you need male teachers, engineers to build bridges you need and it becomes a religious duty. Even though it's in a worldly sphere. It's not a religious action, but it becomes necessary for the fulfillment of the aims of everyone in the community. One of the most significant statements that Mammon never he makes, and I forgot to mention it. So I would like to go back to it. So please excuse me on that in chat law
is from the first step of the sacred knowledge that is obligatory upon all of us. And I forgot to read this paragraph out to you from the first step of knowledge, he says, He will.
Then knowledge that relates to the heart, spirituality, the knowledge that relates to purifying our heart from caught on. Well, who am I already
To a mirage we'll call the Cal has a D will urge B which one Masha Houma it is to know the detriment of the illnesses of envy, and arrogance and pride and what is similar to it. For Carl has led us it really mammals bizarrely and others, they said,
the knowledge of the Hadoop of the limitations and the reasons ASVAB.
And the cures. Why Elijah, for drying is an obligation upon everyone.
Everyone must know what is hasn't.
Everyone must know what is MV, and every one of us must seek to learn how to cure it within themselves.
Carla how you other than Sally said
that if someone feels within themselves that they are prone to jealousy of others, it is sinful for them to remain unknowledgeable of how to remove jealousy. You cannot see within yourself that you have an anger problem. You come home and you're angry. You yell your voices loud. Your wife says your neighbor say your father says your mother says Why are you saying it you got to learn to come down you got to take control of yourself. You got to stop this this is too much it's going to destroy our home is farther upon you as Sala is farmed, it is farmed upon you in equal measure. According to Lima, I'm in no way an aroma, that you find the treatment for it. That which will
remove anger from your heart, that which would remove jealousy from your heart that which words remove longing from your tongue,
eyes that look at sinful things. You cannot just sit and say, Allah helped me out a lot helped me know, you must be active in seeking a cure, whether it's physical, or spiritual,
whether physical or spiritual. It could be you go to an angry anger management session, how to control my anger. You have to
because those ailments of the heart are the things that destroy the ailments of the body, the elder body and therefore the Prophet Mohammed Salim said, in in the body there is a place that if it is pure, and if it is settled, everything is settled. It's the heart that spiritual proverbial heart. So he continues and says
intermec cannot interfere called boohooman Delica.
If a person is able to cure himself Billa tantalum without seeking a particular cure? Kapha it's enough. He won't be asked by Allah. Why didn't you learn about the Hadees and what measures to take to stop looking at pornography, or to stop hearing sinful vulgarity to restrain yourself from anger and mismanagement of the rights of others? If he develops techniques that aren't religious based, it's enough a level free him. But if he doesn't develop secular or worldly ways to control these things, lezzy mahieu it's lasme yrg. At Tolkien here to purify himself Qmr yells Mo, who Taku Zina as much as it is a compulsory upon him to not commit adultery, it becomes so compulsory upon you to
not be angry as it would be to say to someone, this is how long everyone knows to cheat on one spouse is Hold on. No one doubts that. But everyone doubts Oh, do I have to you know remove anger and jealousy? Yes, with the same gravity. This is how the Imams of early sooner, look at those disastrous moments. And anyone who is acquainted with our Muslim communities knows that there are a lot more homes destroyed because of anger, mismanagement of one's anger, hostility, inadequacies, then of someone cheating or are these other things that pop up. There are more homes destroyed from the issues that relate to the heart than there are that relate to the issues of the Cabal and the
major sins. Very few men will divorce their wife because she's the thief.
But many may divorce a spouse because she's always talking bad about people. She always makes me feel bad. She can't restrain her tongue. She's always looking to what other people have been telling me I want the same as them. She's always jealous about I can't live like this. I feel like I'm drowning.
This is this is the reality of what you find. Same with the sisters.
He doesn't talk I don't know how to talk to him. Every time I talk he yells every time I asked him
angry, the cute children don't want anything to do with how can I need a divorce? Right? Those are the things that destroy homes more than this person has committed this sin, this person has stolen someone's car. No, those are secondary further away. We'll return now to the third step, the third religious obligation. And the third step of sacred knowledge of the aim of the Sharia,
which is ineffable, this is completely voluntary. So the first two were obligations one obligation on us as individuals. And the second obligation on us as a community. The third are voluntary, anyone can do it man or woman, young or old.
And these things are
delving into the study of the principles of our faith that will soon and the Foroohar looking into how we can share our faith with others, how we can further and write books with that we know in writing it down, preparing presentations, going to extra classes, learning secondary things past what we already know, studying the CEO of the Prophet, Mohammed Sai Salim, you know, doing these kinds of things that are extra to what is the basic forms of knowledge. But here's what's important. And imagine that we make a section where he says that if one has not fulfilled the first obligation, which is personal obligation, then the third obligation is no unacceptable.
If you don't consolidate your knowledge of the essence of what makes you a Muslim, you're wasting your time by looking at these secondary theoretical things, or things that relate to things that are not a part directly of your life and your worship with Allah subhanahu wa Tada. So therefore, he couldn't find you and says, No, go back and learn the essence, before you go into the secondary issues in sha Allah.
He begins the chapter of a double metalman Mr. Lim, excuse me, we're going to look at the manners of a teacher. And he begins by talking the manners of a teacher, because in the next chapter we're going to talk about is the manners of a student. And I want to join these two together, because it shows us the ethics of what we seek to be as people who are teachers to others, who say, brother, yeah, I'm not gonna sit on a stage like you to teach others about Islam. But you forget that you have a son who's sitting in the backseat, while you drive your car every day, you have a son, who and adults are who live in your home, who you are their primary teacher, that's your job. For the
first five years of your child's life, they will learn more than you in them, then the rest of their life, university PhD doesn't matter what they do, those first five years, they absorb from you emotional intelligence,
how to react to situations, how to live, how to confront challenges, how to get along and interact, and teamwork with others, who to be close friends with who not to be, how to speak to elders, how to speak to younger people. Sometimes we forget that when we bend over a child, and we're speaking down to them, and we're angry with them, they're looking up at this giant monster.
You know, when you have to see you know, this little three year old four year old, and you're five foot, seven, five foot eight. To them, they're under a two feet, and they're looking up at you. And you're this overwhelming presence, Allahu Akbar.
We forget that we are probably the primary teachers, for the youngest people who we interact with and depend on us for their very survival. And because they depend on us, they can't voice their concern. So all of a sudden, you're yelling, stop crying, and they stop crying. You think, Oh, good. I got him to stop crying. But it's only because they know they need you for food and drink. And if I don't stop crying, they're not going to help me in life. And what you've done is destroyed any semblance of trust.
that that child now understands that when I'm old enough to speak my own word, and I don't need you to feed me, inside their mind. They will not react to you in that same way. Okay, I'm gonna be quiet. Now. They're gonna say I'm out the door. I'm going to live my own life. I'm going to do my own thing for entomology. You're a teacher. You are the beginning of scholarship.
He says, Now from the men from the manners of a teacher,
Imam Shafi said, were the two I would love.
And Nell Hulk that everyone that I meet that Allah Mojave in that they learn it.
I Allah Allah Yun said Elijah whorfin Minh, and that no one would say they learned it from me. I don't want anyone to say, oh, look what he's contributed to Islam. Now, this is the first step of finding a competent teacher, someone who's not in it to be better than you. a teacher's aim, a good teacher, is that they want to teach you so that you develop tools to become better than them. That's what commandments chapter is saying. I want that the students that I'm teaching the people that I'm living with the likes of Imam Ahmed, that when I'm talking with them, and when I'm teaching with them, I wish that they never say I learned from a Shafi that they gained to such a degree that now
their teachers on their own, and no one says I learned anything from him. This is compare that to the words of Allah Mammon, never we in our last session of telling us who not to study with the one who's angry if you go and learn from someone else.
He continues and says, I will use of not only Mammon No, he is quoting from Abu Yusuf, who is the student of really memorable hanifa now, and the moment that we does this intentionally our scholars they tell us that he intentionally written liberates from the opposite madhhab which is the measure of overly memorable halifa to show you his humility in accepting the truth from whoever Abu use have said, and he quotes him.
Yeah, he would say to those who study with him,
really to be a Muslim Sikh with the knowledge that you are seeking, seeking Allah that in any By Allah, I tell you, I share with you Lem. I never once a jealous, sad, magically sun caught in any time I sat and taught at any time, except that I made the new year and Wi Fi and awaba that I am humbled before those who I'm teaching and I wish that from those who are teaching will those who will correct me those who will say no, you made a mistake there and then correct me
what you repair what should a teacher beginning to teach first?
you are leaving home. He should begin a Sahar
while Jude one Makarem first thing you teach Sahar generosity and Jude returning others favor when they give you favor.
One Academy a flower and the refined etickets what Alcatel wedge and at the end a pleasing disposition happiness always exude happiness and, and a smile upon one's face. Wilhelm and forbearance forgiving others what sub and patience when tested.
One will as a matter of law, and to be scrupulous not to seek from others things that someone has something you don't look to it and you want similar to it.
Well, what are one who shuwa humility before Allah, with sakeena, tranquility will work hard, humbleness and honor. What palawa lowering oneself for others will huduma submissiveness to Allah, which dinarobin the heck and not to be too loud with one's laughter when it found me in Alameda and to be always joking around. One more, one more last Emmett adabas, Sharia and always to be present with the religious etiquettes that we are taught a VA healer that are seen by others, well, hatha yoga and that are within within our capacity to fulfill. Now look at all these characteristics This is he saying the primary goal of a teacher is that the things that your students are going to see
from you are a Jew generosity,
and do a Sahar giving giving to others. Nakajima o'clock revine character, a happy disposition, calacatta always smiling and content and him forgiving those who have harmed you forbearance, or sub patience when when enduring the harm from others will as a matter of law, to always be scrupulous, and not
Seek what others have, and who should humility before Allah as Sakina, to be tranquil in one's personality, and to work hard to have all in the eyes of people that people respect you,
a talaga but yet to be submissive to Allah.
Not to Laugh too much, and not to joke too much, and to fulfill all of those obligations in in public, and also in private with one students will come work at onvif and he continues to say, and to be from those who are cleaning, and helping to clean, Alva Safa, you see something disorganized, fix it, you see paper on the ground, pick it up, what onvif
and malibus What is that a little raw, to always have a good scent, and to clean and to cut and to trim one's hair and to have a pleasing appearance.
What a three hallelujah and to fulfill
and to to always have a pleasant appearance. So all of those become the first things that commandment nawawi says should be apparent from one who is teaching others, he continues to say.
At the same time. What feen FCL Hol
l horseshoe obey the law to show humility before Allah for Allah says fella to emphasize. Don't ever think of yourselves better than others. It is only a law who knows who has true taqwa in a Khurana coma in the law, he at Capcom, and the best of you is only the one who has talked about before Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And also the prophets I seldom said in hadda, komiya maluhia homily and agenda, which is that famous Hadith, that a person will live a life that they're just an arm's length from Jenna, but perhaps before their time, they will do a Satan that lead them away into jahannam. So he says, even though you seem to have all these characteristics in you, and show it to others, always
remember that it is Allah who knows who is truly pious between them and Allah subhanho wa Taala.
He continues to say,
what a lay of the land in do not humiliate knowledge. What does that mean? It means don't give it to those who don't deserve it. Now, the scholars were very, very strict with this. Some people, they don't deserve to learn it. And there's a times you know, for myself and others, sometimes you will have a student whose parents are forcing them to hold on class or, or they're not interested.
It is better for you to honor those who came interested by kicking out the one who isn't interested to honor him. Because knowledge should not be forced upon anyone.
And imagined they would expel from their circles, those who were not worthy of receiving it. So a man comes and asks a man Malik, how is Allah Allah is on? How What does it mean a rough man, Archie Stella, and he meant Malik put his head down. The rough man is rose above the above his throne in the heavens. What does this mean? Remember he put his head down. And when he put his face up, he looked angry.
And he said an st where maloom a law has informed us of this lk format rule how nobody knows it. As soon as one who began to question and to delve into these matters is heresy bid ah. Get out of my Masjid. You're not permitted here. I'm not going to receive your questions anymore. You're not even going to sit and listen to what I have to say. Right? So you have to honor knowledge. You have to preserve it for those who seek it. Also he says
woman I know who either. Sila fairland Sahaja is MP Neff SIL was enough Salem when I can VA hero who and now haraam Alma crew.
Helen bill Marula when I'm with Alex, I am Betty Lou and you build us harbor who be he? He says from the etiquettes of a value teacher is that if he's doing something permitted, it's Helen it's something Helen but someone from a distance seeing him might think it's wrong or even macro. Not even it doesn't have to be wrong or even macro this light it becomes obligatory upon him to say
And to clarify the matter.
For example, many of you know, you know, me and my wife or my kids. If you see me all of a sudden walking in KL, holding hands with someone that isn't my wife.
It's my sister. Right? Could be my sister. I mean, she came from Canada. She's visiting. And she comes in, she hugs me from nice guy. Whoa, what's happening, brother? Yeah, what's going on? That's not his wife. I know what his wife looks like. That's not her. And I see you and I see that there is some confusion that is set in you.
I cannot just say Who are they to judge me?
I'm not doing anything wrong. I'm Matalan, my sister. Who are they to look at me and thinking, no, I'm not going to explain myself to anyone. No, you're wrong. In our Deen you have to the look of impropriety is sinful, even if it is not impropriety even if it is not caught on. If you and this happened to me in Perth, by the way, I pulled up, Brother, you know,
sister sitting next to me, everyone knows what my wife looks like. Yeah, we've lived in Perth, his own brother pulls up at a red light and said I really and then he, he sees this lady sitting here, you know? It's not my wife. Looks as if it's my sister. He was Oh, okay, brother. Right. It's only natural. This what the prophets I send them did. Sophia visited in the masjid in the Hadith is a Muslim. And late at night, he walked her home as he's walking with her home. Two men from the unsolved from a distance far away. They see the Prophet they know the prophet SAW Selim. But they see a figure of a woman, you know, shorter dressed in women's clothes. They don't know who it is in
the night. They don't know who it is. For Astra they saw they love the product. And they began to walk away quickly when the Prophet said I love this likoma stuff. Come here Come in the house. Come here. You have to see who it is. In the house, Sophia to sell Gina vehicle. This is Sophia, the wife of your Prophet Mohammed zweisimmen. They said
on messenger of Allah would never think something bad of you or Mohammed's eyes on him.
He said in a shade on a dream. And if you are the manager of them, maybe now you don't. But shame on circulates through a human being the way blood does. Maybe it's not in your heart. Now. The font is somewhere else. But maybe it'll circulate and come to your heart. Maybe it'll be a thing. Oh, yeah, yeah, I saw a brother. Yeah, yeah. Yeah, he had this. Yeah, he was holding hands. What he was driving and there was Yeah, someone with him who, all of a sudden on Facebook and Twitter. Right. UFO sightings. That's it. That's how gossip begins. Right? Islam seeks to prevent it. So even if it is not a haram thing, even if it is not cruel, and there's some doubt and you feel other thoughts,
and it's not clear your heart, you have to go to them and clear it up.
He then continues and says,
that one imparts
and the one who seeks to learn from you should be protected by you. And he says that a good teacher is the one who seeks to protect his students from misunderstanding or wants to answer the questions and to show them that, you know, he wants to clarify the issues. And he reports the statements of Abdullah abass, who is the cousin of the Prophet Mohammed, so I sell them and the most knowledgeable of the Quran of the prophets I send them where he said acrimonious era, the people I love and honor the most jealousy is the one who seeks to learn from me.
Who comes to study from me. Now we still talk one law he if i was able, Allah kostova voila, what he left. If I could protect my student, from a fly landing on their face, I would do it for them. I wished for them the best in everything that I have. This is how the woman and the scholars of faith thought to teach those who study with them. And therefore Allah says to the Prophet, walk with Jenna, Jacqueline, meaning lower your wing of humility to those who are believers Be merciful with those who loves one another for the way of a loss of Hannah Montana.
Also, he says, unfolded he
said, in the law has your head Bula Lim al mutawa waiuku lallemand Jabba Allah loves the scholar who is humble, and Allah hates the scholar who thinks highly of themselves. Woman por la vida de la heeta Allah, what is a coma and the one who has
himself to Allah, Allah grants them wisdom that they would not attain without that humbleness. So those are just a few words of an Imam and know where we as they relate to this, the, the, the the qualities of a good teacher and what they seek to teach with. We're going to end inshallah, with a Dobbin with a limb some of the knowledge and some of the qualities of a good student. And then hamdulillah all of us are students, you and I, we seek to learn more about our faith. And the prophets I send them begins this by telling us as we mentioned, the importance of the heart. And we began our journey this morning with talking about certain truthfulness and if lost sincerity to
Allah, which both take root in the heart. And when the heart is pure. The rest of the actions of the body are accepted, as is in the Hadith of the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
used to have Bula Polly be an akuna
beneficial for the student to free of his time
for his study
the ally after all in shadow,
so that he is not distracted from his study due to the necessities and other things, meaning that when you come to study something, just say you're with us here today. And I know you have children and so forth. Don't just put them with someone who you think can manage. No, put them with someone who you know, you don't have to keep checking on and that your heart will be distracted half the day wondering, I wonder what if, oh, my God, what if they got into the balcony or no, you have to set yourself that when you're going to study and you're going to dedicate time for it, that you make it to the best of your ability.
Also, he uses the statement
of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
where he speaks about alien and soft one came to visit him Salalah while he was selling them and he came from a distance and the Prophet was laying down in his message and he was laying down on a on a reddish you know brownish kind of garment Allah Boudin avoided is like this, a cloak achma that was reddish ruddy in color brownish in color. And as of one came, so one says immediate to approval and come to learn yellow Sula law, and the prophets I seldom setup whatsoever, Yaba and prepared his garment and said moto haben greetings to the one who has come to learn, which emphasizes the point that the student comes to knowledge and knowledge doesn't come to the student.
And the moms they would refuse to go to teach. And they would say if you want to learn you come to learn, right? The imams at Lima Malika Lima Ahmed, the mu Luke and these hula fans, they would say, Come to the palace and teach they would say no, I mean that Majid over the ground is not clean and that no if you want to learn, you want your children to learn you come, fella l mu you mutawa t knowledge is come you come to it, it does not come to you. Right. That was the statement of the great imams in that regard.
Also, we hear the statement of your haven abacha fear which is found in Muslim
law you subtitle and below that lgc knowledge cannot be acquired, we've comfort you guys are sitting I know you're back. You're like oh man. It's been an uncomfortable long, five, six hours. And you want to stretch and you want to take a walk and yes, sometimes it gets a little bit, you know, distracting and this and that. But without with comfort a body you will never learn.
You have to give something from your wealth from your time from your effort from your body, from your comfort, that will that will give you in return that which will be blessed in knowledge. And this was the way of the Sahaba with one ally here I laid him out of our home. They would come from distances to ask the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam questions and they would come to seek it directly from him and from the most knowledgeable that they could share with
of the most important statements as well. that relate to acquiring knowledge for us as students is
your honor da un asking a law to make our knowledge beneficial. So you find the prophets I send them would say Allah Homer Luke naman Napa.
Allah blesses us with knowledge that is beneficial meaning one that I can put into practice, one that I can use in my life. Let me learn from this floor on something that I can implement Abdullah miromar is is reported in lots of here. He said, we used to learn, learn 10 verses then 10 verses 10. And then we would see how we would apply them how we would use them in our life. And then we take on 10 more verses, how we can apply them how we can use them into our life.
And that was the habit of the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
You find also many of them, many of the tab you're in and the target server in would make your art for their teachers, where they would say aloha muster iE bemani me, Oh Allah, don't let me see anything bad for my teacher.
Because in part of knowledge you want that the person you're learning from that Allah blesses them. What good is learning from someone and in your heart, you say, I wonder if they're a good person or not? You ask them what Oh Allah cover that cover their shame. All of us are shameful. All of us, between us and Allah, all of us. Even the greatest of the greats have their son in law, have their mistakes, have their moments, and you say, oh, Allah covered the shame of my teacher, even if it's there, Oh Allah, hide it. If it's there, Oh ALLAH forgive it. Right? Make your art for those who teach you and ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to give them a bath and strength and protect them.
institutions such as jakeem, and the odema you have in this country, and those who authorize the halaal from what is haraam, and those who work to give you clarity. Why do people you know, love to visit Malaysia? There's many reasons. But because you know, and hamdulillah you come to a place, you know, if it doesn't say, no, halaal it's opposite, right? Everywhere else you look, is it halaal show me a Hillel sticker. Here. It's the opposite. You know, you go to most restaurant, if it's pork, and they have a it says not allowed. We're not allowed. The other ones are valid. You have that clarity and that confidence, someone did it.
Someone that you forget to make dua for someone who at times when they make a mistake, you hold them accountable too much. And I want to end with this quote of an Imam in a circle.
And an Imam asaka was one of the great scholars of Hadith. And he was one of the profound imams where he said, Yeah, Lamia as he was in LA who iaca Limavady, my dear brother, my dear sister, may Allah let you and I be pleasing to Allah. This is Dora in beginning
learn No, my dear brother, may Allah bless you and I to please Allah.
Wa Jelena min min Yasha Hua Taki ha ha ha to hottie, and May Allah make us from those who fear Him and who are pious to him as he deserves.
And to whom Allah Allah, he must muma that the bodies of the scholars are poisoned pieces of meat. You know, when someone backed by too, they're eating your flesh. But when you backed by the scholar, it's poisoned. It's not just eating flesh, it's poisoned flesh. Why? To law, and a law has set the precedent fee heathcare, a star among Takashi maluna. And a law has shown the precedent of those who seek to rip down the scholars what he does to those people. Men Athletica Lisa who feel Oleanna even
those who attack the scholars with their tongues unjustified Lee, without evidence without reason, just with hearsay and backbiting. And one I think not I know but I think or it could be
banner hula hoop, that that type of person. A lot will trial them give them the Bella cobalamin booty before their death be melted.
before they die, their hearts will have died. The man in their heart will lesson no one who is critical of the llama without reason or who blows a small reason into a big reason. Except that that person has missing a man in their heart.
Because those who guard Islam are the inheritors of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam you have to understand this not because
Someone is adamant means they're better than you between you and Allah. But the likelihood that insha Allah they have Taqwa and knowledge that makes them better than just someone who is a worshipper is likely. And we always think of our odema as what is best. And you always make your art for the older man and those who teach people good, that those the ends and the fish make your art for. How could we humble people who learn from them, not ask Allah subhana wa Taala to bless us through them through the knowledge that they give us.
So a way to preserve our heart and our emaan is to guard what we say about others. You always hear these offhand comments. No, No, No, he doesn't. No.
No, no, no. You know, he does be that. What? Just like that?
Oh, no, no, he's This is that offhand comments that we think are just simple things. When in fact, a statement just one word law, you'll feel Habana that a person doesn't pay attention to its significance will pull people down into the depth of jahannam as is mentioned by the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. May Allah honor the scholars of this land in this nation in this country Allahumma amin, may Allah protect the institutions that protect the faith of those who believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala in this blessed country, Allah May Allah subhanho wa Taala Unitas upon upon the truth. And may Allah cover the faults of our imams in our odema May Allah subhanho wa
Taala cure them of their ailments and their sins, and make us and then better for it be evening la heeta Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala put the love of the Quran in our hearts and the love of the student and the tradition and fifth into the law into the hearts of us and our children. May Allah subhana wa Taala allow us to practice what we speak and to make our hidden better than our public. May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allow us to adjust our families before others. May Allah Subhana Allah put the love that we have with one another as reason for us to endure genital for those with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
