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

and he

00:00:02--> 00:00:15

handed in that or so that was salam ala Rasulillah that some Allahu Allahu Allah annual sign yourself with that. Welcome to the City of Baja might have to pull that up again a little bit

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

yeah just pull that up in shock. Welcome to the city of Omaha the city of Imam and Buhari and SubhanAllah. We've had, how many days?

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

Two days?

00:00:33--> 00:00:41

Third day. This is day three. And it's jam packed. Right? So Tashkent some time yesterday?

00:00:44--> 00:00:47

It's a little bit of a burden, isn't it? No worries alive.

00:00:49--> 00:00:52

Yeah, I think I might just bring it up here in sha Allah.

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

Good. We're good.

00:00:56--> 00:00:57

There we go. We're not good.

00:00:59--> 00:01:46

Yeah, no, it should be fine. All right. So and hamdulillah we've had this great opportunity to travel together. And mashallah, before we kind of begin speaking about at the moment Buhari, I wanted to just say, does not move or failed for taking a trip. And I wanted to thank you for kind of going out on this adventure. That is intending spiritual growth as well. Because you can definitely make this trip without me. Or without or party or without Islam. And you could just come and look at the sites and say, Oh, wow, that looks really cool. Take the photo, go back home. And it's another one off the bucket list. But the aim of our kind of coming together is that these are names that we

00:01:46--> 00:02:37

hear, I think man was at the moment, we'll find and remember, typically the wrote in his book or so we want to connect with our heritage. And that's really the thought behind the meetings that we have. So today's focus in chochmah is really the first session. Although we spoken a little bit of a really memorable hottie. It's the first of three sessions that I want to speak about environmental hottie in some relative coherence so that we kind of can follow. Why is history within our community as believers in Allah is so significant? Why does somebody who live 1200 years ago remain relevant to us today? Why is it one of the most translated influential texts that nearly 2 billion Muslims

00:02:38--> 00:03:27

look to? Why is it that you can pray a single Juma prayer, except that there's going to be a hadith or a statement that is recorded by this particular, you know, wonderful. Yeah, he's referred to as a sign of a laws of protection of faith. You know, he's an I mean, at bat, that he was used as a sign of Allah that when he said, I'm going to protect your faith, yeah. Mohammed's I sell them that. It's a reality. He's a tool towards that end. And how can we recapture that spirit? So what is it that Imago Hadees Mother gave? What is it that his family did, that we can kind of recreate within our homes, within our spheres within our future families? In sha Allah? What can I as an individual do

00:03:27--> 00:03:41

to better the life of my daughter should eat or model and add? What you know, what can I do to make them future Imams for our community? Now, Allah subhanaw taala says that the righteous amongst us they make this

00:03:43--> 00:04:04

better have Lenin as well as you know, with reactive and brought them over Allah, mein for us from our families, a site that will be pleasing to our eyes, you know, all of us we want to see, you know, I want to see my wife from a distance, I want to see my daughter, my son, my son's from a distance and feel in my heart content.

00:04:05--> 00:04:24

The worst feeling to have is where those who are your intimate partners in life are not the comfort of your life. Now we can see this dramatized in the month or two of Pat's, some of the most celebrated iconic figures in cinema,

00:04:25--> 00:04:26

have committed,

00:04:27--> 00:04:41

you know, put themselves out in a public space, really, because the imbalance that is behind closed doors kind of came out. So I don't you know, I don't want to mix between Alabama Buhari and Johnny Depp.

00:04:43--> 00:04:44

But I want you to consider that.

00:04:45--> 00:04:59

You know, there's a person who we grew up watching privates of the Caribbean, right, Pirates of the Caribbean, and he's out there. He's doing all this private, oldest public stuff, but in his private life, there's suffering

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


00:05:01--> 00:05:43

there's a person who has to self medicate, I serve a person who is inflicted and conflicted in his life in his behavior, that domestic existence is not one that is congruent to the DUA that Allah asks us have Lendermon as well as the prophets I said Lim says it's an astounding state. In the authentic hadith the Prophet it seldom says, how you imitate, the greatest attainment or individual to have in life and in model slightly hot is a good spouse, a good woman in their life. And Letty in another era has

00:05:44--> 00:05:51

she's the type of woman that if her husband Cesar permit distance, he feels a sense of joy.

00:05:52--> 00:06:01

Now you might think, Oh, well that's for him. Well, what does she get? Well, it's the exact same thing in return that you know, when I have this admiration

00:06:03--> 00:06:48

this this joy at my spouse, you know, I'm just so so lady love with with her, that she's the the son of my life and every other person is just a distant star. That's something that she can't find. There's no cheat, you can't attain that, where you have you know, an absolute love that is reciprocated between each other. So in the manual Buhari becomes a standard for us we want to see what are how do we recreate because as you continue that DUA and solten, on which island in mana, Minkus reference points make us Imams for the righteous.

00:06:49--> 00:07:02

The prophets I seldom used to make dua and he would say this is that you're a prophet that would, and you would say Allah from me as I look, I hope that will help them or like ask you for your love, and the love of those who love

00:07:03--> 00:07:47

because if you have love of those who don't love Allah, you're in trouble. It's the love of those who love Allah that you and I should see and have in our life. So when we live at a variance and we see the love of those who are distant from Allah, it puts us at the expense of losing the love of those who will be loved and are loving to Allah and those who are the ones who you will rely on. They are the ones who Allah make us Imams for future generations for the community for our people. May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to live as Imams, yourself and myself, that we are callers to good practitioners of good that we can be celebrated for our love of Allah and admired for our love

00:07:47--> 00:07:51

and consistency of the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu.

00:07:53--> 00:08:15

And Imam and Buhari is Adam, the Redeemer when we begin studying and metabolically Buhari, you know, as you trained in Islamic sciences, one of the first studies before you touch the book at the moment hottie is how to approach it, how to enter upon how to, you know, come come to understand and appreciate its significance.

00:08:16--> 00:08:19

We know that Al Imam Al Bukhari his life was full of

00:08:21--> 00:09:08

ups and downs, I don't mean spiritualizing I mean, experiences that show you that he was favored by Allah because of the tests that he suffered. So you will hear as we narrate his life story that there were moments in his life where he had to pick up a leaf off of, you know, a bush, or a tree like the ones next to us now, and boiling water just to have a taste for the water. That was the only thing he had to consider. There were moments of his life, where he was waiting for his mom to send money. And that by the time that reached him, out of his desire not to owe anyone, or have anyone have favor on him, that there were moments of poverty. There were also moments of vast

00:09:08--> 00:09:23

wealth. And there were moments of opportunities to have greater Well, there were moments that if he placated, and if he just played ball with the Imam with the Emir or the suntan of his area, he could have been the wealthiest,

00:09:24--> 00:09:41

but he always held that the love of Allah and the love of the tradition of the prophets, I said, must come forward. So we're gonna talk about the ups and downs of his life at the moment because he has a long name. And you know, if you're following me on the booklet that I provided you

00:09:43--> 00:09:59

Mohamed even is married. So his name is Mohammad. That's his first and formal name. And that's a very not well known, conventional naming system that you will find in many cultures that they will give their son two names. Muhammad's Yahia Muhammad this matter

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

mean, they will give their sons to names in honor of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the name Muhammad is for those,

00:10:09--> 00:10:18

you know, British citizens with us here today, excuse me, Scottish people as well, we don't want any trouble, right? So United Kingdom citizens, right?

00:10:19--> 00:10:55

You know, Mohammed is the most famous name in the UK, the most famous name really anywhere around the world. And that's because we have this love for the prophets ISIS. So especially when families would become come into Islam, which is at the Manmohan Singh's family and Islam entering into Bahara is now just one generation or two generations pass. So they're relatively new. It's just his grandfather, great grandfather, who began to learn about faith and learn about Islam. So his name is Mohammed met. His father's name is Manny and his father's name is recorded

00:10:56--> 00:11:02

in the books of heavy narrating one heavy so his father wasn't

00:11:03--> 00:11:46

he wasn't a scholar of heavy he was a merchant, and he was a very wealthy merchant. As you can see the city of Oklahoma that we're in and we're going to go travel and walk through the markets in the next half hour or so shot luck. They are a people who are skilled artisans, the woodwork, that metalwork even that, you know, that's behind me the woodwork that's in our roofs and ceilings in our beautiful hotel. All of these are skilled trades. And then they would take this and they would travel the Silk Road. So we're in one of the main nodes of this was like the New York or the Paris of the fashion world 1500 years ago. So if you wanted the latest fabric, the latest style, the

00:11:46--> 00:12:26

latest artifact to put in your home, if you wanted the newest dish type, if you wanted the latest and greatest thing that would be brought from China from India, into Wuhan, and then from there would make its way on to Rome and into other places in the known world. So in Bamako Hadees father was a merchant, and he was a Traveling Merchant, and he was a wealthy man. But when he learned about the Hadith of the prophets, I seldom he was always intrigued by the study of heavy and although he dies early in his son's life, multiple hottie is raised as an orphan from the age of five or six, some say seven or eight.

00:12:27--> 00:12:57

The thing that he remembers about his father is that his father would say to him, you know, the prophets lie Selim said, and I heard this from this person, and an Imam Al Bukhari sees that one of the greatest passions of his father was what the Hadith of the prophets is at any moment Buhari was very gifted intellectually, he could have become anything. But the thing that kind of drove him towards that is that he lost his father early in his life. And the lasting memory that he had of his father was,

00:12:58--> 00:13:07

he loved that he, he went to Medina, and his father's name is recorded in one Hadith narrating from his Imam Malik directly.

00:13:08--> 00:13:09

So that sparked something

00:13:10--> 00:13:12

that was like I want to go.

00:13:13--> 00:13:54

It's very rare that a mother, a single mother, would take her 15 year old child and make her at that time. Now I want you to, you know, that desert that we traveled in that bullet train that we came when you saw, you know, the expanse and you saw, you know, dangers surrounding and now you're going to travel nearly 3000 kilometers, to the medina of the Prophet iclm. And onto Mecca. Had you with something and we still have this tradition today, you know, before you're going to have people come to your house, and they will say, you know, I you say to them, I'm going to hide if you know, I want you to forgive me, where did that come from? It's not a sunnah. Really. It's a sunnah of culture of

00:13:54--> 00:13:57

Muslims. Why? Because since the early times, if

00:13:59--> 00:14:18

you were likely not to come back, like you would go, and there was illness, and there were people on the road and there, you know, you may not make it back. It's not Oh, I'm going to have that I want to be clean. It's I may never see you again. So I want you to know that I want you to forgive me. Right.

00:14:19--> 00:14:29

Early on at the abominable hottie in his young years, he suffered an illness in his eyes, that caused him to be temporarily.

00:14:31--> 00:14:34

And his mother who was a devout woman,

00:14:35--> 00:14:42

she didn't remarry. And she maintained that she wanted to invest in herself, so she was very careful.

00:14:44--> 00:14:59

So she would look after him really well. But all of a sudden, he wakes up one night, and he's unable to see there was an infection that was going to city and it was kind of this bacteria was eating away in his eyes. So she

00:15:00--> 00:15:27

To perform her night prayers, and she would wake up in the night and she would make her check what to allow her complaint to. And she would say oh bla bla bla bla bla and in an authentic narration, we know that on one night after a number of nights of her pregnant, she saw Prophet Ibrahim Ali in her in her dream that to her, Allah has accepted your, your son will be able to see again

00:15:28--> 00:15:31

utilize him for the Sunnah.

00:15:33--> 00:15:53

So she wakes up, she wakes her son up at night and he's able to see a little bit better and the site begins to improve infection goes and he's one of the few in this area who regains his sight and that was counted as one of the blessings of Mr. Magoo hottie before he becomes an economic Buhari.

00:15:54--> 00:16:37

The prophets Allah Allah Allah alayhi wa sallam was one who taught us that there would be people who would understand his statements better than those who were with him. In the authentic hadith collected by the Imam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said on the day you've had, as he's speaking to the 1000s of people, that you value the Seminole let the one who's standing with me, conveyed to the one who's away from me, or the one who will come at a later time for the new ballot in our hand in seven, perhaps the one who will hear it not from me, but later through you may understand what I said better than those of you who are standing in front.

00:16:38--> 00:17:24

There are also having that kind of mentioned that there will be people who will become more significant in protecting the Hadith of the prophets of Allah Adi whistling than others, who would take it upon themselves to become healthy. Now, the word how often in a technical sense, is not really used. For those who memorize the Quran alone. It was actually used initially in the early days for those who collected the Hadith of the profits, isolate them, and we're guardians against it being manipulated, added, omitted. We heard the Hadith that we studied yesterday, the hadith of Al Bara APIs, where he said that when I recall the DUA back to the prophets, I said them

00:17:25--> 00:17:35

you know, I was laying on my side, the prophets, I seldom said that when you lay on your side, you've made your will do you make your DUA at the end? Oh, he said that I asked you

00:17:37--> 00:18:13

by the Love and disfavor of what has been taught to me by the prophesy Salam. Rasool Allah Nabi Iike, worldschooling, Nabi Yeka, and let the outsell he said, I made the mistake of saying, rasool Allah the opposite, the Prophet said, Dawn, its Nebia, the prophet who you sent us a message from Allah or yourself. So there was this concerted effort to maintain the syntax, the order the statements of the words of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, in this city. And we will go by the message that this occurs in.

00:18:14--> 00:18:39

At the moment will hottie when his father passed away, he began to hang around the vessel where Hadith was being taught, so he wouldn't loiter around. And it was uncommon for people of his age. Everybody was seven, eight years old, they were out running chasing balls, and you know, they wanted to enjoy themselves. But there's an environment potty and sit there listening to leave. And when he heard the Hadith once, did not forget it.

00:18:41--> 00:18:48

So one of the master will had to deal with narrating a hadith in front of the, you know, the scholars of the city.

00:18:50--> 00:18:52

And he made a mistake in the chain.

00:18:53--> 00:19:04

So he said that it's from this person from this person from this person from the province is Salem, Alabama Buhari and 10 years old. He's on record for saying, No, you made a mistake. And then people realize

00:19:05--> 00:19:06

that a man

00:19:08--> 00:19:21

was a man of humility. And there's a difference between those who teach pay for the importance of faith and those who teach faith because they need to teach a vocation it's a job and

00:19:23--> 00:19:59

everybody was in an uproar, who says, Yeah, who let us keep in here anyway, what's he doing? And he said, No, hold on. So he went, got his book, because he was recording from memory. So when you are narrating from memory, what do you usually say? Is it a foreigner or had that and I remember we were talking about this. It's had that happen, right? So he would say had that. So now he's like, no, no, let me check my book. So he goes in and looks in his book, and then Imam Buhari, although he wasn't able to defend why he was saying it's wrong. He knew what was wrong. So when they opened the book,

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

He was correct.

00:20:02--> 00:20:18

Marry the son of Iraqi, the son of a movie Iraq, even about this, but that's that great grandfather, who was a Zoroastrian who is a fire worshiper from this region. And Allah Muhammad Buhari is given the Kenya

00:20:20--> 00:20:36

that he is from the city of Bukhara, which is muscular towards the city that he was born and geography is there in his state. The word geography is from one of the Arabic tribes. So when somebody used to enter into Islam,

00:20:37--> 00:20:40

they would be adopted by the IRS tribe.

00:20:41--> 00:21:20

That was teaching Islam because they were travelers, right. So when people would come just say they were visiting a particular area, and they were telling people about asylum, some of them becoming son, they wouldn't take the end to Ghana, you are now as if you're from our tribe, they will keep them their tribal me. So emammal Buhari is not geography as in his heritage. But in those who, who gave them the Dawa, to Islam, they become under their name. So just say somebody except Islam, one of you know, one of the people that I visit, and I mean, just say, I'm in Glasgow, and some of mashallah our Glasgow family here, they say, you know, we have a family friend, we want him to

00:21:20--> 00:21:25

become a Muslim, and we want you to, you know, speak to him at assignment, and then he becomes a Muslim.

00:21:27--> 00:22:08

That person would get the tribal or ancestral name of the family. So they would then be known as being part of that outward structure of that, right. And that was a way of making people feel that they are part of something greater, even though they're individuals, it's a loss sooner in our communities today. Sadly, many people when they come into Islam, they're like, Okay, just like your brother, here's your prayer mat. Here's a copy of the Quran. And you're lucky if you get that, by the way, right? Here's your prayer mat here. And mashallah, we'll see you in Ramadan. Don't forget to fast. Like, it just instructions. Here's your basics to Islam, and we have a class every

00:22:08--> 00:22:39

Wednesday, and that's it. But they actually used to include them. And it was an honor that you would then include in your title. Right? That's an important quality of an environmental hottie. Rahmatullahi Ali, at the age of 16, he had mastered Hadith in the city. So from that moment of 10 years old, the Imams of this activity said, this child is going to have that will shatter. He will have a place in our teaching, he will become a person of teaching.

00:22:41--> 00:23:24

Allah subhanho wa Taala opens doorways that we never knew were there until we actually get there and we say, Oh, this was a door I didn't even know there was a diving deep and no one's going in that direction. So some of us there are pivots in our life. And sometimes we are the pivot or other people's lives. So never discount the interaction that you can have an imam Bukhari in contradicting that Imam on that day. And that Imam not scolding him and not allowing others to scolding becomes the reason an Imam Al Bukhari becomes the it's not, who is going to teach him and how many more had the theme and how many scholars will we have? It's that moment. It's that moment that somebody gave

00:23:24--> 00:23:27

that person a chance and this is something that I experienced.

00:23:29--> 00:23:44

There was a Quran and Sunnah conference in Toronto, 1993 Don't judge my age. Right? And there were all these Arabic scholars who have come from so many parts of the world.

00:23:46--> 00:23:50

And 1993 I can tell you, when I was like a young

00:23:52--> 00:23:57

1516 years, right, I was in like, year 10 height, the, you know, high school grade test.

00:23:59--> 00:24:05

And they had that a chef slot, who would then become the Mufti of Saudi Arabia. Currently,

00:24:06--> 00:24:16

they have checked Muhammad Hassan would become one of my foundation, how am I supposed to do my rate? You know, the person who I never explained the body foods chain,

00:24:18--> 00:24:19

you know, something like tasty.

00:24:21--> 00:24:50

And you know, how Muslims, you know, how we are with our organizations, right? They had all these people who came in but no translate. So there's these, you know, high caliber professors. And they're, they're from a teeny University, Ankara University as a university, you know, all over and they're visiting Toronto for a three day conference. And my dad goes, Okay, let's go. And we go, and you know, I'm sitting there in the audience, and then a brother named at the minute and may Allah bless him chef after

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

he couldn't get on the mic is English at that time was not as good as what it is today. So it gets on the mic. Is there anybody here wants to translate

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

Looks like we have only

00:25:03--> 00:25:05

I don't remember. My dad's like.

00:25:07--> 00:25:08

So like, Yeah, I'll do it.

00:25:10--> 00:25:11

And I just

00:25:12--> 00:25:12

don't do it.

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

I might that looks.

00:25:16--> 00:25:18

Now there's this critical point, right?

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


00:25:22--> 00:25:33

You're out of your depth, right? I had just begun to learn that. Like I was 1516 years old. And I'd maybe gotten five or six years. And I was like illiterate in Islamic science. Oh, I'll do it.

00:25:35--> 00:25:40

And I sat there next to a bus, the other person

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

ship using Egyptian.

00:25:45--> 00:25:45

He looks at

00:25:48--> 00:25:49

me, he goes,

00:25:50--> 00:25:53

I can do my karate. When should I speak in Arabic?

00:25:55--> 00:26:07

And I was like, Turkey is in Egypt. When you say Turkey is like an understandable language like, Oh, what are these people saying? It sounds Arab, but it's not right. So I looked at her and said that

00:26:08--> 00:26:15

I was serious. Like I got a note I've never used. So he smiled at me was okay. That's about Robert. We'll take it sentence by sentence.

00:26:16--> 00:26:19

And it was a phenomenal talk. Right.

00:26:20--> 00:26:22

And everyone's

00:26:24--> 00:26:28

actually understood, it wasn't Zach Rosada, who is giving translation.

00:26:29--> 00:26:31

Like it was, whoa.

00:26:35--> 00:26:42

And then the other man, they kind of they look scared. You know, people were like, listen, they're not falling asleep. Okay.

00:26:43--> 00:26:44


00:26:45--> 00:26:49

they said, Okay, you're here tomorrow, as I get

00:26:51--> 00:26:59

up here early, because we're gonna. So I translated the next day. It was awesome. little mistakes here and there. Then the next day, it was great. And then,

00:27:00--> 00:27:12

you know, there was some of the people from America, Detroit had driven down to be in the conference, because they were going to take the shift now to America to Detroit. And they said, you're coming with us? I was oh, no, that's cool. I got like math class.

00:27:13--> 00:27:56

And they're like, no, no, we'll talk to your dad. So I was like, oh my god, I'm 15. And I went to like Detroit, and Texas. And like, I'm hanging out with these Yoo hoo, who then say, okay, look, in your summer when you're done, come and visit. So I would literally travel every summer and live in Jeff or Hammonds house, live in their house and study with them. And then when they would travel, they'd be like, okay, culture call. Yeah, we want him to be our translator. And to the point that even you know, the Saudi Embassy, which is today's interview room, and any of them would visit, the embassy out of Washington would fly me how to translate for them. Right.

00:27:58--> 00:28:07

So that's how it began, there was just one person one opportunity one door, and somebody said, You can do it. But where did I get that courage from?

00:28:09--> 00:28:32

At the age of 16, I wanted to memorize, I saw a young Pakistani Canadian, young man, and it was my 1516 would complete it doesn't know Arabic, but he's going to leave the Torah. So I'm gonna do it. Am I they said no, don't do I said, No, I can do it. What do you mean? No? Why do you hindering my progress?

00:28:34--> 00:28:49

And my dad said, Look, if you're gonna do the Quran, it has to be between you and Allah. I'm not going to be a part of it. I'm gonna put it on you, you will have to commit. So just like you take the bus to go to school, you take the bus to come to them.

00:28:52--> 00:28:57

You know, in hindsight, it was just for the first month wanted to see

00:28:59--> 00:29:13

whether it's genuine, or it's all you know, just dropping off to them as good. And I would take a chrome school, I take a bite and it's no storms and my mom would I knew my mom was like, so upset with him. God, could you do this?

00:29:16--> 00:29:21

Let's just see where it goes. I could hear the fine and I'm that's I'm a very stubborn kind of person.

00:29:22--> 00:29:48

And I continued and mashallah then my brother said, Well, I'm doing it as well. He can do it. And he actually finished reforms, Panama, my brother in law, even success. And then my dad, I came home one day and there was a car. It was one of those dodge a cars like really old cars, and I was like 16 and just got a driver's license. Like who's who's visiting and my dad goes here, so that you can go and come back.

00:29:50--> 00:29:52

So the doors that open

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

are not always ones that you see. One of the central doors was my first full entry. Here.

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

Tom and Jeff, this is where I got that.

00:30:02--> 00:30:17

When they begin memorizing you could see I had a gift for speech. And he was used to be the son of the former movie of one of the African countries in Russia and Ukraine scholar and I began to memorize and learn with him. And

00:30:18--> 00:30:34

he, it was summertime. And he came to the masjid or Juma it is Dumas. And it's the one it was the largest Majid in Toronto at the time, Toronto and Region Islamic center. And he said,

00:30:35--> 00:30:42

five minutes before the five minutes, because yeah, my throat is hurting, you need to give us what?

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

It's like 3000 people which

00:30:47--> 00:30:54

you'll be fine. Remember, we were studying the chapter of kappa? Remember you were memorizing the Hadith from relevant? Yeah. Okay, that's what you're going to talk.

00:30:55--> 00:31:08

And I still have the recording, right? And I don't know. And I remember, as I was climbing up the mimbar. When I put my hand on it, it was just water. I was so sweaty.

00:31:10--> 00:31:18

And subhanAllah I began in this community. And that was, from that moment on opportunities, people who progress

00:31:20--> 00:31:22

Do not underestimate

00:31:23--> 00:32:10

the nod of encouragement that you give to a young person, do not underestimate the investment in somebody who is not significant today. So if I was to say to you, would you support you know, would you support me I want to do and Islamic initiative. Many of you say yes, to get ahead, of course. But if I was to ask you that when I was 17 years old, you didn't see the promise of where it would be 25 years later, but it's that 17 year old who needs your care? To become what Yes, of course he is today what a mambo hottie is today what yeah, he Ebrahim or whoever it is, that now has some impact on your life to the right. This is what we see in the early life at Manipal. High at the age

00:32:10--> 00:32:13

of 16. He says to his mom, we're going to

00:32:16--> 00:32:17

and she says yes,

00:32:18--> 00:32:19

he is her mom.

00:32:21--> 00:32:25

His brother older brother says no, no, I can't let you go. I'll come to hydrated

00:32:27--> 00:32:36

Imam Buhari convinces his brother to come and leave the family business, because he's got a plan in mind that he hasn't told his family

00:32:37--> 00:32:40

which is you're going to take then I'm teaching you

00:32:41--> 00:32:49

and mom is going to need somebody to travel back with her. So he's like, how could you miss this opportunity to take your mom to Hajj the reward is this.

00:32:50--> 00:32:56

Like he's planning on his on his adventure of learning and knowledge. And we're

00:32:57--> 00:33:41

at the age of 16, he heads to Mecca, Medina, and they stop in different cities along the way, each and every city. He meets with Obama, he gains their permission, he finds a way for them to learn of his transmission of the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now at the age of 16. Each and every city that he visits, he's writing down the names of their of the scholars there, and the names of their students and the names of their teachers. So just say you come to the city of Bihar, just say we count all of you with my students and somebody remember how he visits and he's like, Oh, my God, Allah. So yeah, he's teaching and in the audience, there's Aziz and he writes

00:33:41--> 00:34:17

down the names of all the students and writes down what are the Hadith that he witnessed and ask them how many Hadith Did you collect from this? What are the okay named them to give me the Hadith you got from yeah, here, give me the Hadith you got from Sophia give me the honey. So every city that he visits as he's traveling to Hajj, and then enters Mecca, and then all of that Imams who come to Mecca, who then have classes, he sits in their class and writes down the name. So he builds the first Encyclopedia of the narrator's. It's called Atari. The history of the report is of the Hadith of the prophets of Allah.

00:34:18--> 00:34:59

And it is one of the most phenomenal works of Hadith that was done ad hoc of categorizing all the names of the people, all who their students were, all who their teachers were, that was done as he was journeying and in remembrance of what his teachers had taught him back home. So he was a person who was always thinking of opportunities, we're going to end in sha Allah, with an imam for Hadith, finishing, and ending up in the city of the prophet Isaiah. And as he's sitting in the city of the prophets, I said them, he is embraced by the demands of heavy the sea. He's brought the Hadith of the people of Iraq. He's brought that

00:35:00--> 00:35:10

These are the people that will Ha, he's Matt. He's memorized that he's got the books that he's written down. He's bought all this stuff that they would have had to travel to. So he's like a treasure in Medina.

00:35:11--> 00:35:19

And they're like, We don't want you to go and you have new money and all these great demands are sitting there. And one of them says something.

00:35:21--> 00:35:28

He says, wouldn't it be wonderful? If somebody collected a book just of the authentic statements of the

00:35:30--> 00:36:06

back then the Hadith books were everything that was reported? One of them said, wouldn't have made our life easier. If somebody yes, we have all these books, because we don't want to lose anything. We want to know what was said and what wasn't. Because you need to write down things that were said. But aren't the words of the Prophet size, we need to know that these aren't the words it's important to categorize. But wouldn't it be great if somebody Jenna and Anna gathered for us, all of the Hadees that are just affect remember how he says as I was sitting in the role of apartheid Salem Wakanda, and he said, this word, Wolfpack the quality of going to another, that statement,

00:36:06--> 00:36:26

penetrated my heart and said I will do an over the next 16 years. And the commandment for hearty gathers and Jemison is also here of a demand the pot. That will be chapter two of our discussion in sha Allah. And any questions so far about what we've kind of said, we want to Yes.

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

Couldn't yeah means nickname. So mine, Camilla is Sugata Ma.

00:36:37--> 00:37:15

The nickname is usually an inscription that is given to you for the birth of your first child, but not necessarily. So for example, in the time of the Prophet iclm, young children will be given a good idea of what you want them to grow up to be. So a young child, you might need them about Romania, you know, the one who will have a long life. His name, he's not Romanian isn't a son of mine, you know, you're going to have a long life. Right? I remember when I thought they used to call him Romania first. And then when he became older, they said, Okay, now you're in luck, right? So names used to change in the in the study of hadith is really complex because somebody used to be

00:37:15--> 00:38:01

known with this date. And then as he grew older, he got he was given a new name. So usually the Konya is related to the birth of your first son or your first child. So I am Edward Aman. My first son's name is Armand so I'm the father of that becomes the Konya. It can also be of the city that you were born. So that Camilla Williamson Buhari is an Buhari it's not about who his child was. But what separates him from others. There's so many other active frogman which is excluding Abdullah there's so many of them. But what was unique is that this is Mohammed Ismail Ibrahim from the heart and so becomes an Buhari. Kanye is an identifying tag that I became that is attached. Great

00:38:01--> 00:38:03

question. Any other questions?

00:38:04--> 00:38:40

All right, we're going to pause it there. So Pannekoek often will be handed should one that either hate that a subsequent to relate. Next time we meet, we'll talk about some of the books that were written by the member party, the earliest collections, how we became the Imam that he wants to date, his journey or knowledge that went past his agenda from raw and his travel in his 20s to Baghdad and Iraq conveniently, and others insha Allah subhana wa Morbihan dig to show the world that we live will take a walking tour now and maybe grab some lunch on the wind towards the Old

00:38:41--> 00:38:45

City inshallah. Inshallah sounds good luck

00:38:46--> 00:38:47

with that
