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

Welcome to level salatu salam ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we're back. Now we're on the way to the hot, which is the place of course of residence. demandable thought he gains his name and notoriety. Now I want you to know any moment Bahati.

00:00:20--> 00:00:23

May Allah subhanaw taala send light upon his grave,

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

was a person of this lens, and therefore his primary language was purgin. And in the era that he came to accept Islam,

00:00:34--> 00:00:47

grew up in Islam, and in the era that his great grandfather entered into Islam. This area was ruled by those who were fire worshippers and monks and people who practiced

00:00:48--> 00:01:08

a faith that was lacking in Metohija that we know and assumed as being the path that leads to a loss of Hannah Montana and to pine a lot from someone who used to worship the fire and the sun comes the great light of the Suna the mom of Atlas, Cinder and Mohamed

00:01:09--> 00:01:59

el Buhari. Now in his name there is the Konya jiofi, which is in relation to one of the rulers of his time, who was an Arab and what used to happen and back in the day, and I can't go into Arabic history too much. But once you came into Islam, you came into Islam and aligned yourself with a particular category of people or group of people. And it would be dependent on the type of tribe that had called you to Islam led you to Islam, that you would become their Mola, you would become a person who took allegiance and you were a patron, and they were your patron and you are a compatriot of them, and you would actually carry their ancestral name. So at the moment, Bahati, although he is

00:01:59--> 00:02:23

from Bahama in terms of mountain mussel rocks, where he was born, he was a trophy, which is one of the tribes that is the people who brought his great great grandfather into Islam. So from then on, he was given their kidney and their last name, or their name of notoriety. I demand an Imam and behati life

00:02:25--> 00:03:13

grew up fatherless as I've mentioned to you previously. But this did not mean that he grew up deprived of his father's attention and love, and some kind of love. His father was a wealthy merchant. And his father had dedicated sums of money for his education, which was something was that was rare with the time and his mother, rock metal IRA, I was very careful with the nurturing of his education, and wanting him to have the best of teachers. And she would spend the wealth that was retained from his inheritance upon that. And there's an important lesson for that, for all of us. wealth was not meant to be added one on top of another it was meant to be spent in that which is

00:03:13--> 00:03:27

best for you for this life and the next life. And therefore your travel as a loss of conduits Allah commanded Nepal on fesi, roofing out, go out into the world travel throughout the earth, from Budo cave, I can now

00:03:29--> 00:04:08

look and learn and take lessons from those who live lives before your life. And therefore our heritage tourism curricula that we're upon, is very much keeping in conformity with the shooting of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of wanting to travel the earth and learn about the other people and cultures. It's amazing when you study the Hadith of the prophets, I send them one of them collected Muslim, that you know, there was this young girl who entered upon the prophets I send them and you know, she had this beautiful little pretty yellow dress on so when she was so proud of it, you know, she was like a four year old and the prophets I send them said sin nacinda

00:04:09--> 00:04:54

meaning how beautiful how beautiful in the Ethiopian language. And this is one of numerous hobbies with a profit, you know, would use different languages and different dialects and people he had met or encountered whether it is travel, or those who came to visit him some a lot he would sell them. It was a way of the prophets I send them bringing everyone together, and therefore you don't find it strange that the masters of the fields of our Islamic Deen and studies were people who were not people of the Arabic language by birth, Alibaba, behati Muslim and Amanda telemovie alima, Vanessa, Abu Dawood, all of them come from this region where their mother tongue initially was not the

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

language of the outcome. But here's where I want to draw your attention to a second important point.

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

Because they weren't born with an Arabic tongue and an Arabic language, that that meant that they did not seek to pursue its knowledge and therefore the knowledge of the whole and can only be unlocked when you begin to master shades and levels of the Arabic language. It will be something that you will never I will never master the Arabic language. But you must attempt to become more and more familiar with its discourse, its dialect and its meaning. And this is from the commands of a lots of kinda went to Allah, where he introduces the whole line by saying Elif Lam mean. It's from these letters. It's not sound, but letters. It's not words but letters. These are in an AVI file.

00:05:46--> 00:06:34

It is with an Arabic language that will not have crookedness in it. And therefore the Quran is very much a syntax and then and then morphology that is held together through the language and the practice of the Arabic language at the moment Bahati masters in and he grows up in the circles of knowledge in Bahasa, and he attends one after another, mastering one teacher after the next one text after the next memorizing text after text, reciting it from memory and heart and inspiring all of those who were teaching him who would then ask him to go on to others to pursue his knowledge. Allah Mohammed Bahati begins to travel and his first wrestler was to Mecca. Roma at the age of 16, with

00:06:34--> 00:06:59

his mother and brother to perform hajj and Hajj back in the day was a three month journey. Imagine being in this area and taking a camel and traveling across the desert. You know, with your sword, with your shield with your food that you're going to cook with the money that you need to spend with whatever is that that you wish to take and Allah commands with as

00:07:01--> 00:07:46

the tumbler increase in your provisions. But remember, your greatest provision and the greatest thing to take with you on your journey is the taqwa of Allah has no agenda. So in the moment Gauhati sets out to Hodge and his mother sees how he begins to flourish. He goes from one lesson to the next, hula, hula. And Mecca would be the place that Allah would come during their hug. And they would stay for you know, months and years after teaching and learning from each other. So any moment Bahati requests of his mom to stay behind, and he stays there for an excessive amount of time, some say up to four years. He Mama's go hottie stays, and he travels between Mecca and Medina, mastering

00:07:46--> 00:07:49

the science and the discipline of Hadith.

00:07:50--> 00:08:38

It's in Al Madina, munawwara, the only mammal Buhari and in Mecca, begins to formulate his decision to collect a Jama. So here, the sohier collection, which we refer to simply as a PSA here for a handheld Bahati, or just simply Bahati. And I want you to think about that. There's no other book in the in Islamic library, where you just refer to the author, and you just say it's, you know, it's a hottie. The only ones that come close is where you say so he Muslim, and even Muslim is not as as famous and well known as El Buhari, as Buhari has always been that standard, where as soon as someone hears that, they can kind of feel assured that what they have is something that is sent

00:08:38--> 00:08:42

through the words and from the lips of the Prophet sallallahu.

00:08:43--> 00:08:52

So I want to focus on for the next 10 minutes in chat law, give you a little bit of a glimpse into what I saw here is what

00:08:53--> 00:09:02

it is not for me to explain that the first thing I need to explain to you is the concept of a Zaha Hadid had also he had it is a hadith that is collected.

00:09:03--> 00:09:46

And it is measured in its authenticity in two ways in its method, and in its Senate. Its meta means in the information it contains what is being said. So that's measured in accordance to whether it meets the standards of other authentic known heavy, famous hudy whether it meets the standard of what is mentioned in the Koran, and whether the content is something that is acceptable in the opinions of the believers. Number two and most important, which is the first filter is the Senate that is not and it's not as something that's very important. The grainy mountains they would say, and it's not to me that the willow lane is not the parliament.

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

It's not it's very much the basis and foundation of our religion, and had it not been for the it's not anyone could make a claim and say whatever they want.

00:10:00--> 00:10:20

wanted and no one would be able to push back No one will be able to say, How can I be sure? How do I know the Prophet said what you say he said, and therefore the science of how he became one of the first mature sciences of faith that was consolidated in the very early stages of our oma.

00:10:21--> 00:11:09

So, so he has he has a number of conditions. First is, I saw he had he is one that is more pulsatile as Senate that every person in the chain of narration can be proven to be connected to the next person. So Mashallah, you know, my brother Sargent and I, we were, we live in the same time, we've met each other and up there a number of times, we're from the same era, it can be easily proven that we have met each other, there's a track record, there's a back log of fact to show that we've met. Now, that wasn't something that was always the first criteria of so here. For me, my Muslim, for example, I saw he had he is where two people lived in the same vicinity and time as each other. And

00:11:09--> 00:11:33

they didn't have to prove that on a particular occasion. I heard these from them, just that they lived in the same time. They both are students of knowledge. Both of them are narrators of honey. The safest assumption is yes, of course, they would study honey, but I want you to understand something. And I can use this and others will use this example. So I lived and wildlife would be traveling to study.

00:11:34--> 00:12:26

And visiting Mecca and Medina, some of the great imams were alive. So a chef and I shudder to think me, I shuffle as Bonnie, they were alive in the arrows alive. Many of their students are my teachers. And if I say to you, a mom, or a chef nearby said, I live in the same area as him. I went to the same city that he lived in. I visited Mecca when he was in New York, I visited Medina in when he was in Medina. And when I say to you live nearby said, should you assume that I sat at that time and heard him say? Or would you assume just because I was studying? Or would you assume in our common time, that perhaps there's other means of transmission? Perhaps it says that it's from his

00:12:26--> 00:12:29

book, perhaps it's something he heard on a YouTube video.

00:12:31--> 00:13:03

And therefore, it became more important for the moment Bahati to ask a critical question. And that's what makes us unique. It wasn't just enough that you lived in the same area, and knew of each other, and that you could have possibly met each other. You had to have witnesses and prove that you learned and taught from each other. And that was a very difficult, difficult task from the 800,000 Hadees. That Amanda Bahati compile, he whittled it down to 7000.

00:13:05--> 00:13:30

That's how strict it was. And therefore when we say so hit his body, I want that to be the first thing that comes to mind that the Senate that is not is more bossing everyone in the chain of duration. And without a doubt, to the point that they reach any moment Bahati, he can prove that on this day, or in this moment, in in this time, this person said to that person and people witnessed it and know of it.

00:13:31--> 00:13:34

It's irrefutable. Number two,

00:13:36--> 00:14:19

is that the person narrating to you that has he So the first is will close to the Senate. I mean, I think it's gonna be an honorable noble person. And I shared with you the story about your mom and Bahati throwing away 10,000 Gold dinar into the water when he was on a ship. And people were saying that someone has lost 10,000 he didn't want anyone to assume that if they found it in his belongings, it was his that it wasn't his and that would destroy his reputation. They were unblemished people in their character and conduct. They were people who never miss all that in the message. Because if someone came to the masjid, and he mumble hottie is it this is his mosque and

00:14:19--> 00:14:41

he's not there. Where is he? He prayed at home. That was an immediate sign that there's something not right. It could be something used to say that in his character is a flaw. At the moment Bahati was of a noble high standard, as was everyone in the chain of Cadiz, who he would take and narrate from.

00:14:42--> 00:15:00

Number two is that no one else has accused him of anything. Number three is that they were exact in there. They had buffed, they weren't exact in their transmission. If you heard a heartbeat from them today, they didn't change it tomorrow. They didn't omit a letter.

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

Or an accent, there was nothing that would change irrespective of who or when or where they heard that it. And some of the masters of hobbies and times their conditions in life would change. So there's an event named after life either Hi, who is the Mufti of Alexandria in Egypt. He was a man of impeccable character and knowledge. But in his old age, his memory became became me. And he became reliant upon his books when he narrated comedies, and then the famous fire of Alexandria occurred. And when it burned down the library, his books were burnt down. So all of a sudden, the books he relied on to narrate how these were no longer there, he changed in the estimation of the

00:15:47--> 00:15:51

odema, from being a sahid, narrator of it to being.

00:15:52--> 00:16:04

So all of a sudden, his character is amazing. He's in the mob, he's a movie, he's the chief movie of Cairo and Alexandria, but no one will take his head either recorded unless they ask one question.

00:16:05--> 00:16:06

Did you hear this

00:16:08--> 00:16:14

before or after the player. And if you said it was after the fire, was it

00:16:15--> 00:16:41

after the fire, it meant his hobbies was unexpected. I can't collect this heavy for you. If it was before the fire did he narrated from his book, or from his memory, and if it was from his memory, it would be more or less and not use as an authentic cheat. That's how precise they were. So number three, it's not just in their conduct, but they had to be exacting they had to have to do the narration.

00:16:42--> 00:17:08

And finally, when you look at the narrator's of hobbies, that they were because they were people who had no one make a blemish or an accusation against them. They were people who understood that he understood the context of what was being mentioned. They weren't just parroting the statements of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So that's the concept of Sahil

00:17:09--> 00:17:14

Bahati, he only had the highest levels of Zaha Hadid.

00:17:15--> 00:17:30

The second thing that I want to mention is the title of his book. And the title is not just simply as we refer to it as jam. So here, so I'm gonna share with you the title and its translation. The title is a German Muslim album doesn't

00:17:32--> 00:17:43

mean had EP or asylee rasulillah. There's two narrations of what his books were called Rasulullah was certain that he was yummy. Meaning This is

00:17:44--> 00:18:25

a collection of IDs. So the aim of aluminum Buhari was to collect Hadith also here, only of these that are here. So he wanted to collect it. And he wanted to make it a compendium that it all came together, meaning he was going to gather it according to chapter headings. Previously, other books, they would just whatever had even came to them, they put it in the scholars of Hadith would then clarify at the end, so Hey, how are you? It wasn't meant for the lay person to achieve it or look at it at the moment. Bahati came at it from a sophisticated way, where he said, No, I want people to be able to look at it from a chapter heading. If they want the Hades Uppsala, they don't need to look

00:18:25--> 00:19:11

through all the headings to find it. So for that, I'm going to make that job easy. So I'm going to make a collection of the second word. So here it is authentic it, but he doesn't want you to think it is all of the authentic ad, because there are authentic hobbies that are outside of the body. So the next word becomes important. He says, Alan Mufasa, it is summarized, meaning that there are other hobbies that exists that I wasn't able and privy to put into this book. Number four, make it easy. And also Linda from the statements and that's a word of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what could it be? And this should not and this is a very important issue. And we'll solve

00:19:11--> 00:19:41

that issue classification issue. There's a difference between healthy and sooner than sitting out the province I sell them is the structure that the building blocks of Hades is made from. So you take 100 if it's a brick, and another Hadeeth, it's a brick and another Helene's it's a brick, and then you build the ideal of the sooner. So what you find in that, so hey, hubballi mama Buhari is that a times there will be two bricks that seem to collide with each other. I'll give you an example.

00:19:42--> 00:19:45

In the chapter of funerals,

00:19:46--> 00:19:50

at the moment Buhari collects 100,000 of the Allahu anhu where he says

00:19:52--> 00:19:55

the Allahu anhu when he was murdered.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

A man walked in a room he brought him into life.

00:20:00--> 00:20:17

Got a one of the a lot more I know what I mean. And so I remember leaving. And he said, Oh, how difficult is day? Oh, what a tragedy of this day. And it's as if he was mourning or my mother's still alive. And the Homer turned to him and said,

00:20:20--> 00:20:42

Would I be aware also how you did you not know, the prophet said some law who he was telling them, that a person is punished, a dying person and a deceased person is punished, on account of the words and the tears of their loved ones as they are departing the world.

00:20:44--> 00:20:47

So I believe you guys, he shares this candies

00:20:48--> 00:21:32

with you Aloha. And this is the physical video, Mom and Bahati. She has another narration, which you heard you say this, I just said rahima LaHood remote. May Allah have mercy upon the Roma, he made a mistake. The Prophet didn't say that. The Prophet meant that we think of an unbeliever his family will cause them greater agony, because they know they can't come back to become a righteous person. So when they see their family crying, they wish to go back to them and say, why don't you become a believer, I have gone into this place. Now you can come up, I want you to save yourself. So it gives them pain to see that their family are going to repeat the same mistake. So notice, le Bahati

00:21:32--> 00:21:35

reports, both narrations that have differing

00:21:36--> 00:22:03

opinions. And then the last one he uses is the ID device, which means this is the opinion I hold that if someone weaves at the time of their husband's death, or son's death, she's not accountable. Then he begins to narrate moments in this life of the prophets, I send them where a woman was crying at the grave of her brother, where the Prophet wept and the death of his son he brought him with a pocket wept and the son of his grandson, the son of saying I broke the law.

00:22:04--> 00:22:42

So it's a way of an amendment behati saying, These, I'm going to continue to show you the hoodie. But I'm also going to teach you the student not through it. So you understand the difference. Now, of course, what you have in our times today at times, is that a person will pick up some body and what will they do? they'll read one honey, and you read that honey that you'll even hear it from a mom who may not be trained. They'll say the prophets Allah hated them said that and you I've seen this out of janazah I've seen this I've seen a person rebuking the mother of a child who's passed away and says, Don't cry, you're gonna make your son be punished in your hand them for your tears.

00:22:42--> 00:23:11

And I pulled the brother aside. I said, Don't be late. He goes, potty. I said, Listen, you're a law. Let her be. You don't understand Bahati. It's obvious you don't understand when said, you know, go honey. Right. And therefore to take the honey and not have been understanding the methodology given behati even tells you in the beginning, that there's a difference between the hubby's and the tsunami in that capacity.

00:23:14--> 00:23:37

And then the final word, which is a powerful word at the moment, Bahati, he says what a yummy and the days of the prophets I send them, meaning the days that he lives and the moments that he experienced. So he's going to contain in Hades, and should not encima the biography of the Sahaba, the biography of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:23:39--> 00:23:49

In one of the other mentions he speaks about as being in his book, he uses the phrase home, and what's that? That it is a German

00:23:50--> 00:24:36

word, meaning that they are chained back to the profits on the lot while he was selling them. And Muslim is a very important word, because in Sahakian, Bahati, there are 150 200 ether that do not have any snod or a chain of narration. Why is that important? Because those are not considered handy from a third party, they are considered more under current chapter headings. So he's used things that will hava said things and tampereen said to have verses from the Quran Hadees that are not at the level of so here and he hasn't shown you a chain of narration so that you understand he hasn't included this as his so he had he referred to MMA he had a And the final thing that I'll say,

00:24:36--> 00:24:59

inshallah to introduce to you though, so here is that the roadmap they say tuffeau, how you go Hurry up Ferragine alcohol, he has shown his immense fear in the chapter headings that he's chosen. The chapter headings are really phenomenal. And after our breaking luck, I'll share with you some of the filler that we can take from them and some of the insights that we can learn from them. So kind of along with

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

I shall do Allah Allah Allah and as the protocol was Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
