indeed we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for each and every blessing that he has bestowed upon us. What interlude do nearer to La hida to saw her in Sun lava lumen cough our we thank Allah subhanahu to Allah who has given us more blessings than we can even enumerate and count and of the greatest blessings that Allah subhana wa tada has blessed us with his that he has guided us to Islam Alhamdulillah Hilary hadden, Ali has a woman acuna, Nina de Luna and her Donna law and also have the greatest blessings that He has given us is that he has given us Rama to study with, and he has given us knowledge to benefit from what Allah commanded him to Quinta and I'm working for the law law here

00:01:14--> 00:01:59

I lay out vema Indeed, it is something that makes our hearts rejoice and it is something that gives us a hope of optimism, when we find that even in these lands, when those who are Muslims are few, and those who are trying to follow the Sunnah of the Prophet system and perfecto heat even fewer Indeed, it is a sign of optimism and hope, that in Hamdulillah, the spirit of knowledge, that the the the the flame of a man and of in his shining very, very bright, and it is indeed a very big blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala that he has allowed all of us to come here in this gathering for such a long period of time to get to know one another to form bonds of Islamic Brotherhood in

00:01:59--> 00:02:48

Islamic sisterhood to benefit from one another's company from one of the one another's emaan, one another's brotherhood and sisterhood, and also from the knowledge that Allah subhana wa tada has given us, and this institute that sponsored this program and mother of Institute, it is also in my humble opinion, what nozaki Allah he had, it is also one of the biggest blessings that this country has witnessed in the last few years. This Institute, which was formed by our dear brother, Mohammed Sharif, it was a visionary idea. It was an idea that even when it first started, many of us were skeptical, how will it work? What How will this be possible, and I was one of those who was also

00:02:48--> 00:03:24

skeptical. And I was extremely active on the North American scene, at least locally here in Houston. And I will be giving halaqaat and gurus, over 15 years I have been teaching in this very community, every time I would come back in the summer, I would start a hell of a, I would start a dose in some Masjid, in my house in any local area that we could find. And I thought this is the way the best way forward. And indeed, it is a good way forward. But then, when I heard of a motive Institute, and when I saw the potential of a Muslim Institute, and when I joined, and I saw with my own eyes,

00:03:25--> 00:04:06

that indeed, this medium is a more effective medium to teach Islamic sciences in our times. This methodology, this vision is more suited for the people of our place. Yes, it has its negatives, it has its cons. But at the same time, the pros far outweigh the cons. And I remember clearly, when Mohammed Shadi first approached me Of course, we were very good friends, from the days of Medina. It was a year senior to me. And then he left for American I went on for my masters. So many years went by, and I remained in Medina, and he became active over here in North America, when you first approached me to teach, I remember telling him very clearly, look, sounds like a good Institute,

00:04:06--> 00:04:49

inshallah. We'll teach a few weekends of the year, but I'm not going to stop my halaqaat in my community, I'm always going to be doing those who thought it was only a matter of a few classes, when I saw the potential, that indeed, this way, I've been teaching for 15 years this halaqaat and I still do I, I don't stop that. But these halaqaat they don't develop students of knowledge they don't. Why for many reasons, firstly, the attitude and the mood of the attendees. They come once a week for 45 minutes, and they sit in a circle, very few are taking notes. If anything happens, the slightest excuse. They don't show up the slightest, they don't have a commitment. And knowledge is

00:04:49--> 00:05:00

given over a period of years and years. You start a basic button, or a basic topic, and months and weeks and years go by and you don't finish that one particular topic.

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

topic. So knowledge is given very, very small tidbits. The atmosphere is very laid back, people are sitting, not taking notes in a headlock or in a Masjid. And of course, there is no doubt there's a lot of Baraka in this as well, nobody is completely criticizing this. But then you compare and contrast this with a Muslim Institute. Each and every student is typing, taking notes interested, they show up on time, they're eager to learn. And they take a lot in a short amount of time, they benefit an immense amount in a very short amount of time. And when I saw myself that potential, and I saw the benefits and the height and the shallow, the other, the Baraka, even of this methodology

00:05:46--> 00:06:29

and the strategy, I found myself turning away from the smaller halaqaat that I would be doing, and concentrating more on teaching in this seminar style, so much so that in fact, anytime I have a free weekend, I give it to another. Anytime I have a free weekend, I have not gone for this traditional. When you go to a community once upon a time I have even forgotten now that's the standard stereotype that happens, you go you give a hotel, then you give a Friday night holla, then you give a Saturday day talk and then maybe Saturday night somewhere else, I have not done this for over three years. Not because I don't want to, but because I have a limited quantity of weekends. And I feel that

00:06:29--> 00:07:16

teaching in a Masjid with even 1000 people is not as beneficial, or is not as productive. It is not as productive a use of my time as it is to teach even 150 people. It's not the quantity, it's the quality. You go and you teach a group of dedicated students day in and day out, eight, nine hours a day, two weekends back to back. And I see with my own eyes as I go back to the same community over and over and over again, I see the students are flourishing. I see the student body is growing, I see the thirst for Islamic knowledge is getting more and more. And it also of course exposes me to a more national audience. And that is something that is of great benefit. No doubt remaining local has

00:07:16--> 00:08:00

a lot of benefit as well. It's not that there's all pros and all cons on one side. there's pros and cons in everything. But in my humble opinion, this institute has facilitated for some of the DoD and some of the students of knowledge to benefit much more people than they were previously benefiting. And it is because of this that I have dedicated pretty much all of my time to this particular Institute. But it is not the institute that is the goal will lie it is not the Institute. A Muslim Institute is just a means it is just a platform. Our goal is Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and the pleasure of Allah and the spreading of his religion. This is our goal. As for these Institute's they

00:08:00--> 00:08:45

can come and they can go and the religion of Allah will remain the same. One of the greatest aroma of Islam said will law he if emammal Buhari had not come, the religion of Islam would not have been affected. Islam is above personalities. If this is the case with the amendment Bukhari How about with Institute's? How about with people who are a fraction of the worth of Imam Al Bukhari? So the point is that do not assume do not think that our goal is to spread an institute or to spread a group of people no will lie. Our goal in sha Allah, Allah is to spread the religion of Islam, who will lead the Salah Rasulullah, who Bill houda verdienen healthy legal hero who Allah Dean equality,

00:08:45--> 00:09:32

he will occur he held capital. And we pray that Allah azza wa jal allows us to be a part of this revival, a part of the software that we are seeing, especially in this part of the world. Now, after teaching for three and a half years, I strongly felt the need to take this knowledge to a higher level, I really felt that we have to do more than just this two weekend format. No doubt this two weekend format will be effective for most of the educated Muslim masses. But there is a group that is worthy of more attention, a group that needs to be taught much more than two weekends. And so the idea began formulating of having an intensive summer camp. And this was an idea that I've been

00:09:32--> 00:09:59

thinking about for a long time as well. And so when I had taught that hamdulillah so many classes and another Institute has taught so many people and by the way, before the no hitter either we have taught and motive Institute as a whole over 20,000 Muslims in North America 20,000 and will lie that is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when we have this law

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

pool of students, we felt the need. And I felt the the the strong desire to take a group of these students who are more qualified, they have taken more lectures, they are more thirsty for knowledge, take them to a higher level. And this was the kernel or the seed of thinking about something such as summit, and Alhamdulillah. The the headquarters of a Muslim Muhammad Sharif, the others were very, very encouraging. And as is typical with our dear brother Mohammed Sharif, when you think of an idea, he'll throw it back in here and say, Go take it, you're in charge. And so when I approached him, and I had the idea, he was like, excellent, you're in charge, go for it. He's like, I'm not a

00:10:40--> 00:11:09

management got no philosophy, you're in charge, you can do it. I'm not ready. He's only you know, this year, we're doing it next year, this year, next year, this year. It's like, Okay, this year Bismillah. I thought, how are we going to do it this year? He said, just go for it advertise. And of course Muhammad should if he encourages you, and then he steps back, and exactly what he did kept on encouraging pushing. And then the brothers told me that's exactly his strategy you need to take discover you to understand how he thinks. So maybe I should take it but only if you'll give me a discount because I'm not spending too much money for a discover you. Okay, oh, this is on camera,

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

I'm getting into trouble.

00:11:13--> 00:11:14

But in any case.

00:11:15--> 00:11:57

So the idea Alhamdulillah was was in my head for many years. But when I first suggested it to him a few months ago, he was like, we have to do it this year. Let's go for it. And I was very skeptical still, that how are you going to do it? I said maybe 50 people Let's go, they raise the bar to 100. And so panela with 100 applicants, only the seat was limited, we booked it with the hotel, all of a sudden applicants began pouring in applications began flooding in. We had I think over 300 I think people who applied, people were just so thirsty. And so we had to then renegotiate with the hotel and raise it once again to 140 as you know, at hamdulillah. And this is in sha Allah to Allah, the

00:11:57--> 00:12:37

first of a series of annual ilms summits, this is the goal, and inshallah tada even ilme summit is the beginning of a brighter future. Even m summit is just the beginning. There's lots of ideas that all of us have. And the goal is knowledge. A Muslim Institute will not solve the problems of the oma, we know what we're meant to do. We're meant to educate the Muslims. That's our goal. We're meant to teach the Muslims the classical sciences, that is our role. And so appreciate this and realize this, and don't think of other roles that we are not qualified to do. As Bob said, Raheem alohomora and out of elkader NFC, may Allah have mercy on somebody who knows his own qualifications

00:12:37--> 00:13:08

and doesn't go beyond that. And this is something people come to us, why don't you think of this? Why don't you think of that, you know, do this and do that and branch out? And the point is, no, every person has a role and every person has a vision, and what we are, we are an educational institution, Our vision is to teach and other projects, other things, inshallah, you guys can do that. Now, the question arises, and that's what we're talking about this, this brief lecture and I'm gonna hand it on over to my esteemed mentors and peers and Messiah and elders, they are both older than me.

00:13:10--> 00:13:19

And of course senior in knowledge and inshallah huhtala human and tough one, I have no qualms at all, like admitting this and a large xojo knows best what under the cattleya header.

00:13:21--> 00:13:47

The question arises, what exactly should we have attended m summit, and especially the students who have insha Allah with either experienced perhaps for the first time, what it is like to study knowledge in reality, and of course, I mean, goes without saying there are many disclaimers here. I mean, generally speaking, you wouldn't be studying in such lavish settings, okay. With such good food as well, right?

00:13:49--> 00:13:50

Especially today, yes.

00:13:52--> 00:14:37

extra miles, especially today, yes. And of course, you were being taught in English and other issues as well. But at hamdulillah Still, we had a taste of knowledge. And I think I speak on behalf of all three of us, when I say that I have not enjoyed since I have come back from Medina, I have not enjoyed anything as much as this film summit. I think I speak on behalf of all three of us that I have not experienced anything, the passion and the joy of being able to teach and benefit from all of you, and really and truly experience in all over again. Well, I don't think you're the only ones who missed it. We missed it. We missed it because this was the environment we were used to for so

00:14:37--> 00:15:00

many years. And now we're back here we are deprived of it. So these camps revived the very spirits that we are accustomed to the very environment and Alhamdulillah it is something that it makes me very humbled to be a part of and it makes me very proud that Allah azzawajal has blessed all of us to be an integral part in this film summit. So the question arises what is to be done?

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

After him summit, realize,

00:15:03--> 00:15:05

as soon as you go home,

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

reality will strike.

00:15:09--> 00:15:12

As soon as you go home, the bubble will break.

00:15:13--> 00:15:54

This is a beautiful bubble you're living in. And I think all of you without exception from what I know and what I've experienced from you, all of you are loving this environment. You're enjoying it beyond perhaps any other conference or event you've been to. But realize everything liquidation either mathema Nakano, for those of you who heard, she has to recite the poem, everything that declines, everything has to decline after it reaches perfection, everything comes up and goes down. And this reminds me of the Hadith of the Sahabi, who thought that he became a monarch, simply because his level of he man,

00:15:55--> 00:16:12

when he was with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was an all time high. And when he would walk from the masjid to his house, probably five minutes away, what would happen? What do you think is going to happen? You're with the Prophet system, you walk outside, you go home, and there's your wife and your kids, what's gonna happen?

00:16:20--> 00:16:23

Your bait, your Eman is not going to be the same.

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

Oh, my wife is here.

00:16:26--> 00:16:27

I didn't realize that.

00:16:29--> 00:16:30

Your mind goes higher.

00:16:38--> 00:17:08

The point is, it's not a matter of email or not email, actually it is. But the issue is, there is no way humanly possible. You're sitting with the rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now you go home and your kids come running to you. They want to play with you, they want to do this and that, okay, certain wives would possibly complain Not that I would ever know what that means. But certain wives would possibly complain about doing things and time and shopping and grocery. I have heard stories from some buried brothers about this thing.

00:17:12--> 00:17:13

And it is

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

always your wife here too. Okay.

00:17:21--> 00:18:03

And there's no question that Eman is not going to remain the same. So when this Sahabi used to go home, and he used to see the difference of a man Subhanallah his demand was so high that he thought that he had become a monastic because he has double his face. He has a double face, one face with the Prophet saws and one face with his wife and children. And so he thought he became a monastic. And when the Prophet system was told of this, he said, What was the name of the Sahaba humbler, ambala. humbler, he said, hamdulillah. There is an hour for this and there is an hour for that, if you were to reach the same level of Eman, as you have, when you are with me, the Prophet says that

00:18:03--> 00:18:39

I'm said, then the angels would come down and greet you in the streets, they would shake your hands in the streets. If you have that level of amount, 24 seven, then you would not be humans, basically, you would reach a level where the angel would come down into intermingle with you. So the point is that istockphoto we're not comparing it to being able to better with the process of them. But the concept is the same is that you're in an environment where it's easier to be practicing, it's easier to be religious, you're praying Mashallah, with the large congregation five times a day, you're studying in hearing alone as messenger, you're cut off from the world cut off from society, of

00:18:39--> 00:19:23

course, your demand is going to soar. Well, if it doesn't, doesn't store at this environment, something is wrong, really, something is wrong, of course, your mind is going to soar. Now you're going to go back to the real world, this beautiful bubble will collapse. And you know what, that's when the real test begins. Because it's easy. It's easy to put on this false identity when you're here. And it might not even be false. It might be sincere when you're here. But then you go back and friends, family, work school environment, everything is exactly as you left it. Nothing has changed. The same problems, the same pressures, the same politics, the same issues will strike you again.

00:19:23--> 00:19:33

Here is the test. Are you going to succumb and go back to the same lifestyle? Or are you going to realize you know what, I can overcome this, I can do something more.

00:19:34--> 00:19:56

I can do something better than what I was doing. This is the test you will have to face on your own. We can't do anything. Your friends can't do anything. You will have to face it. And my advice to you I don't want to take up the time from the other two. Michelle. Two more minutes. inshallah. My advice to you is very simple. You have tasted the sweetness of knowledge.

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

Perhaps some of you for the first time have taken

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

to this level, and you all have tasted a sweetness in Sharla likes to which you have never felt before. It is possible for you to sustain that sweetness, maybe not to the same level as you have it in this environment, maybe not. But still something it is possible for you to develop your own curriculums, your own schedules, to find out local people in your community to start listening to halaqaat and gurus online reading books, memorizing Quran, understanding Hadith, and we talked about this in our other classes about setting up a personal schedule, this is your responsibility, we can help out we can be semi mentors. But in the end of the day, nobody is there to monitor yourself

00:20:44--> 00:20:53

other than you. You are responsible for yourself. And so after him summit, my advice to you is two points. And that's it. And with that, I'll conclude number one.

00:20:55--> 00:20:57

setup a schedule realistic schedule

00:20:59--> 00:21:01

of studies and doodles.

00:21:03--> 00:21:39

Understand what your capabilities are, and don't go beyond what you're humanly possible of doing. In other words, be merciful to yourself, don't think as soon as you come back, oh, 30 hours a week, I'll be able to study No, you won't. If you have a real life outside, No, you won't be able to. If you're working 40 hours or a full time student, you cannot dedicate 3040 hours to portable and be realistic and set up a feasible, practical, pragmatic schedule of billable and keep it up. And if you want advice with this, the three of us are here or other people in your community, we can see where you're coming from what level you are, and help you out a little bit. And I have tried a

00:21:39--> 00:21:43

little bit to summarize various books in my classes that I gave number to

00:21:44--> 00:22:02

each and every one of you. And I don't want any exceptions. This is my advice. Nobody will monitor nobody, this is my suggestion and advice. And if I can even a command, but it is up to you to do it or not. Each and every one of you sitting here right now should think of a community project that they can do.

00:22:04--> 00:22:06

give back to your community.

00:22:07--> 00:22:54

Whether it is in the best form, which is hella hot and loose, or teaching Sunday school to the children, or do anything, anything that you can possibly do to become proactive in your community, do something that you weren't doing before. Because when you and it has to be academic, preferably if it's not academic, that's very good. But the purpose of him summit is also academic. So take on some academic roles and responsibilities in your community. And of the best things you can do is to have very basic family circles, extended family, invite your relatives, your friends, or neighbors, Muslim neighbors in your locality once a month, once every two months, and short topic of the Quran

00:22:54--> 00:23:31

of at least a fifth and then just socialization. So you combine between Deen and dunya This is something all of you can do it. We have social events all the time. Start a regular social event with your extended family or with your friends. Or in the masjid if you feel qualified, not everybody is qualified to do this, or in your MSA or in your high schools, or in your Sunday schools. Volunteer and take on a project and start teaching the children start doing something that you weren't doing before. And when you do it, then you yourself would automatically be attached to knowledge because when you're teaching, you have to learn and you will never learn your material

00:23:31--> 00:24:09

until you teach it to others. One of my Michelle said this very early on in my career in Medina and Subhan. Allah how true it was. He said to me clearly, yes, it doesn't matter how much you study here in Medina, no matter how many years you stay, you will never master your field until you go teach it to others. And that is so true. I have a master's in Al Qaeda, but will lie it was coming back to America and teaching and teaching and teaching and teaching that solidified it that made me understand that made me memorize. And this is the experience of all teachers. It's one thing just to read it and you think you know, now stand in front of an audience and learn to teach it You had

00:24:09--> 00:24:46

better No, you're not going to be able to teach. So these are the two pieces of advice that I leave you with. Number one, continue your thought opinion. It won't be to this level. Don't be disheartened. Don't feel pessimistic, it won't be to this level, it can't be but inshallah there is a next year as well. And if not eliminated, there will be other positive classes If not, there are other places you can go. Never ever restrict allows blessings to one person or one on him or one Institute or one country out of the law he wants ya. Allah Earth is vast, where there's a will there's a way if you want to study you will find people you will find institutes you will find

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

countries never restricted to one person or one Institute or one country. The important thing you want to study, study and number two, be proactive in your community and give back and if you do these two things

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

Well, I think each and every one of you has successfully passed the summit's objectives. It's each and every one of you would become better Muslims and giving back to the community will lie I think we have accomplished a lot. We have 140 minds here from all over the world, from Europe from Africa from North America. 140 people going back each one with a little candle and lighting more and more candles as they go and inshallah without a bit by bit slowly but surely, we can all have a role to play in this oma, I pray that Allah subhana wa tada blesses us in our efforts and grants us sincerity for his sake, and gives us the tofield to do what pleases Him and protects us from the

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

plotting and planning of those who have designs against us. And he gives us Baraka with the knowledge that He has given us, what are through that one, and then hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa sallahu wa Santo Balaji Mohammed in what Ali he was a big marine.

00:26:03--> 00:26:05

I just talked to them today.

00:26:19--> 00:26:20

make more sense.

00:26:31--> 00:26:33

kathira mama. But

00:26:34--> 00:26:39

again, the whole point of this gathering, and this talk is what is next after m summit.

00:26:40--> 00:26:51

So Paula, the first I would like to remind myself and you with one thing, the first day I'm sure the first day when you guys came over here was probably the most difficult day.

00:26:52--> 00:26:59

And as it was the most difficult day, I'm sure that also the last the last day will be of the most difficult to you as well.

00:27:01--> 00:27:04

Because the first day when you came over here, you didn't know what to expect.

00:27:05--> 00:27:39

You just didn't we were you will not prefer to see what you have seen over here. I'm sure many people they probably have higher expectation and probably they will support it may Allah Subhana Allah forgive us for you know, making people you know, get disappointed with what we have done over here. And I'm sure that other people probably had a lesser maybe aspiration and they have seen handler things beyond that expectation. We thank Allah Subhana Allah to make this very successful for us and for all of you. So the first day was really difficult even for me. Because the week before that, I was coming from New York and spending there the whole week with the kids and the

00:27:39--> 00:27:56

family was Mashallah beautiful adventure. So coming in immediately flying here, the moment I arrived, and I received the schedule, I knew about the schedule before but this time I'm receiving everything seeing it in front of me, I was handed a lot of time in La Ilaha Illa, Allah,

00:27:57--> 00:28:36

may Allah Subhana Allah make it easy for us, but will lie every single day as thoughts passing and handling, getting used to it and putting yourself into the mood bring in the memories of Almudena all these beautiful memories of seeking knowledge and delivering the knowledge as well. I'm just, I don't know how it's gonna be really feel when the when the seminar is over. And I'm sure that the last day of this seminar will be really, really difficult for all of us. Something about the philosophy of Institute, which I spoke about. And I would like to add one more thing to this is that the philosophy of Institute when we teach our classes, we don't and we know that we even cannot

00:28:36--> 00:29:15

produce from the way we teach and the material we give, we cannot produce an independent scholars and Allah. This is for sure. If any one of you is thinking that they're going to become great scholars of Islam, only by attending the class, the classes of another Institute, you're mistaken, this will never happen. And I'm telling you from now, to become a great alum in Sharla is a huge inspiration, we should all look you know into this to become of this inshallah Allah caliber to serve this oma and be part of those who deliver the message of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam to the world and this time, and the days to come and shadow onto the Day of Judgment. But still, we have to

00:29:15--> 00:29:53

be also realistic. It's not that we're going to be great scholars of Islam just by taking these seminars. But our philosophy is just to excite people about knowledge, which means you come and attend the seminar. For the first time in your life. You heard about this particular subject, you probably didn't know what the meaning of that particular class is. The title of the class was not you know, what was it about? And then somehow you hear all these beautiful things. Yet, I had this source of the LMR and even the muscle of the film and the dean and Darth Vader, you get so excited about that the knowledge of Hannah law is really happiness. And again, it's all about bringing

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

happiness to your life and we spoke about that earlier. When you when you receive something that's that's really so so good.

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

To receive a new knowledge, usually respond by smiling, it makes a lot of sense of why this is so great. And that is the whole concept of seeking knowledge through these seminars, you get excited about them, and it becomes your job afterwards to continue with that. If you choose to stop studying after the class is over the seminar is over. If you do not participate in the study sessions, if you do not review your notes, and redo your notes, to perfect your notes, in order to go to the exam and excel in the exam, don't tell me I'm not interested in that. Take this as a challenge to see how much knowledge you can return from the seminar it's not that we write with testing, you're here to

00:30:39--> 00:31:03

see if you're going to fail to pass. This is just for you, to encourage you that you study and Charlotte Excel mode. And after you're done from the seminar, if you don't continue reading, and learning more, reading more books, attending more seminars, more halaqaat in the massage industry, his talking about them. If you do not continue with the knowledge saying that 100 I've taken one seminar, then definitely the knowledge is going to start declining.

00:31:04--> 00:31:16

If you don't practice that you're going to lose it shows as you're speaking about it. So therefore our philosophy again, it's not gonna make you a great Muslim scholar Mashallah just by taking fifth of love and love notes.

00:31:17--> 00:31:54

Maybe taking rays of faith and light upon light will make you some shallow but I'm sure these classes might be to help you become a better husband inshallah Allah, but the actual humanity, get you married, probably. But the whole point is that it is very essential, and important that you understand the philosophy of what you're doing. Because we don't understand that this seminars about helping you understand the knowledge and getting so happy and excited about it. When you go and you study and take these seminars, you probably feel disappointed, discouraged, or maybe overwhelmed. And there are so many people I know them, they come to the first, you know, free nights on Fridays,

00:31:55--> 00:32:33

they attend the class, if you know this is not for me. I'm too old for this. I'm too young for this, but it's too difficult for me and they quit and they don't come and they lose a lot. Because it takes them a while to realize how much they lost when they take one of these similar system. I cannot imagine myself knowing about all these seminars all these years and never attended any of these seminars. Why? Because the amount of knowledge that has been delivered to you in such a precise time. It's unbelievable. Well like we said in Medina, she hasn't studied somewhere else would you study real So basically, and Mashallah.

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

No offense.

00:32:37--> 00:32:39

But Medina University Of course, I mean, there is.

00:32:42--> 00:32:45

Absolutely. Howdy, Medina.

00:32:50--> 00:33:03

So voila, he the way we started in Medina is absolutely different than what you guys studying the amount of knowledge that you're getting in twos with two weekends. I'm telling you, we used to take a prop in one whole year.

00:33:04--> 00:33:12

We take one hour per week folder for that particular subject for the throughout the whole year. And now we are getting all of this power in two weekends. Imam

00:33:14--> 00:33:29

Malik Rahim Allah Allah, when he was narrating reading the book of a Matata students after spending four years of his time working on his book on math, and then he gives the students in 40 days and he goes, I did this and for two years, I'm giving it to him for today's column out of

00:33:30--> 00:34:06

his little that you really grasp on this knowledge. So we are delivering to you another level of knowledge. And we would like from this to help you get excited about it, then inshallah to Allah help you take it to another another level in your personal life and the life of other people as well. The other thing I would like to mention here about our classes, you know, you don't matter of Institute is an educational institute means with the purpose of membership is not politics, the revenue level up is not is nothing regarding, let's say civil rights and so on, there are other organizations taken care of this inshallah for the Muslims, I will not discouraging these efforts.

00:34:06--> 00:34:45

But we are focused in this particular area, and we encouraging people to participate in every effort they can Charlotte to do to serve this omega analyzer. Our purpose is educational, meaning we focus on knowledge, and then that's the main purpose that we do. So therefore, when we teach, we try to be comprehensive in our curriculum, teaching all the aspects and disciplines of Islam subject, like, for instance, subject like Pepsi, Cola, 50 of possible maximum governance, dynamic law in athletes and students on almost all aspects of Islamic sciences. And I have met some people, and we spoke over a cup of coffee sometimes or dinner or lunch and so on. They tell me, why do you guys teach

00:34:45--> 00:35:00

those young students, these kind of big subjects? So what big subjects are about so they give some examples? Isn't this too much for them? So in my humble opinion, I say that don't you think that we are under estimating the intellect of

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

All Muslim Omar,

00:35:02--> 00:35:42

why should we say that there are, you know, they're not ready for them. They're too young for this, or they're not even properly prepared to take these kind of responsibilities and so on. Why do we keep underestimate the intellect of our oma? Our students are smart, intelligent and Mashallah enthusiastic. And the way we do it, we teach them and we give them the philosophy with it as well. So when you give it a class, we say, listen, that doesn't make you qualified Mr. Head, or qualified such and such good argument scholar, it's your turn to go and continue with your message. And when we teach our children, many people came to me criticizing the class itself saying you should not

00:35:42--> 00:36:12

teach those students or Sorrell fell, because of this study or Sorrell felt, then they're going to come out thinking themselves become qualified to give fatwah you give them basically half of the knowledge itself of the discipline itself. So they think of themselves qualified to these all these judgments in fifth century and so on. But again, at the end of the seminar, you take the testimony from the students. So Pamela, I haven't heard anybody at the end of the seminar coming to me saying chef, can you please sign this for me? I want to give fatwa.

00:36:14--> 00:36:39

Never in my career without MLM Institute, anyone came to me saying, Can I please, you know, sign this, please sign this for me just to give the effort to be qualified for my community never. They came asking for teskey recommendation, you know why? They got extremely excited that they wanted to travel overseas or somewhere else where they can learn Sharia in a professional way and on a higher level. And they need you shefa to help them with that.

00:36:40--> 00:36:47

And I'm so proud of this, that they got so excited to that level to take a professional life for themselves. The other thing

00:36:48--> 00:37:23

never those people came to me saying can you sign this for me please. So that I can be become a Mufti? Rather, they asked me and, and as a matter of fact, they come and testify saying will lie. When I came to this class, they say I did not really think that I'm going to benefit from this class at all. I thought, This is not for me. I'm not that person who's, you know, qualified to say these kind of sciences and so on. They were discouraged by some other people, but will lie many, many brothers and sisters come in at the end of the seminar saying is that fair and hamdulillah that we we really have handled it, we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala, who made it possible for us to attend

00:37:23--> 00:37:36

the seminar? Why? Because if I did not attend the seminar, I will never be able to appreciate knowledge, and the effort of our great Muslim scholars, in the way they organized all these beautiful disciplines.

00:37:38--> 00:37:41

It's appreciation, that's what we want from you.

00:37:42--> 00:38:22

You study ozone, and next time you open a book of ozone even if you don't understand anything, if you have no clue whatsoever, what the subject is, you say, Oh, this is so great, man, a lot of what is relevant for what they have done to us. And your job is to continue so you cannot inshallah until you get to that high level with nilay as a surgeon. So as a shallot Allah final thoughts I would like to share with you the shift spoke about encouraging you to keep going on with your note with with seeking knowledge. And I'm sure that we travel to different places we go to different towns, we might not have the same equal opportunity to have access to Allah, Masha imaams soon as if knowledge

00:38:22--> 00:38:55

and so on. So some people might say So what shall I do if I'm isolated in a small town and such and such state? What can I do? How can I increase my knowledge? I would say Do your best. Take seminars online if you can find answers to children with that. If there's a Holic around you participate in this halaqaat Don't let anybody discourage you from listening to anyone you know that they have Mashallah proper knowledge that you can benefit from, go and listen, take the knowledge and benefit from all inshallah xuejun. The other thing is, I would like to encourage you is to read.

00:38:57--> 00:39:13

For me, I would say, Well, this is the secret word for knowledge. Read, because Allah subhanho wa Taala. When a larger if you review the Quran to the prophets of Allah Salaam, the first word that came down was Oprah. What's the meaning of opera?

00:39:14--> 00:39:19

In English in English books that translation they sometimes translate the word ultra into recite,

00:39:20--> 00:39:27

read, purpura, if you don't read, you are not going to retain the knowledge.

00:39:29--> 00:39:42

And every time I recommend to my students at the end of every single seminar, it is your chance and opportunity before the next seminar comes in. You read two or three books of the same topic.

00:39:43--> 00:39:59

If you finished a seminar on data, that same topic that you discuss with the sheriff, make sure that by that before the end of the next the second weekend, you have already ordered one or two books by the recommendation of the teacher or someone else that you know you can trust the judgments. You get one or two books and read these books.

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

About that same particular subject to solidify the knowledge that you get from the shape. Next time you get another, another class on history, or Sierra read 123 books about that same subject until the next seminar. If you don't do that, you will lose the knowledge that you get from the shape or the seminars. And when you read as my recommendation to you as well, when you read one of the beautiful etiquettes of reading and benefiting from a book is that you dark in all these margins with your notes.

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

I know some people that feel sorry again, for them for the books, you know, some beautiful books very expensive, I don't want to keep it clean. So they don't want to write anything, not even their names.

00:40:41--> 00:41:18

So therefore, they just keep it so clean. Fine, but come five years after you finish the book, you will see how much knowledge you still remember from the book. But I would suggest that you as I said, the suite is so high, we just make them black and dark. Would you Inc. Whenever you read, summarize what you read short titles, this paragraph speaks about that particular thing, this paragraph speaks about that particular subject. And then put all these summaries make your own indexes based on your understanding and those titles. At the end of the book are the beginning of the book. Just write them down. Don't put them on somebody might suggest a separate paper or sheet.

00:41:19--> 00:41:54

I don't recommend that unless you run out of space. But if you still have space, put it there inshallah Tada. And as you write, the day will come when you say I remember reading this thing on that book, I'm not sure which one would be very easy for you to go and refer to that piece of knowledge in shallow data easily. And as you grow with the larger knowledge you will find this very, very, very helpful to you. If you would like to make a research write an article prepare hotbar orders and whatsoever you have the material already been organized to you in Charlottetown. So again, read and don't let anybody discourage you from continuing to seek knowledge inshallah Allah

00:41:54--> 00:41:55

hamdulillahi Rabbil aalameen

00:42:03--> 00:42:18

smilla hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah ba, ba, ba ba ba bad all bridgeview to align His praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his family his companions and his father and his followers until the day of judgment.

00:42:22--> 00:42:52

Just also to share with you the first thought from all the machine was about how this was wonderful experience and it's still from the law for all of us to the extent I live like what 30 minutes 35 minutes, maybe 40 minutes driving from here, something like that. But I move in here and I'm living in the hotel staying with you. Because really I like the Sheraton better or the food okay

00:42:54--> 00:43:42

but what's the only reason for me that you make me coming here even chef acids are located when he was putting the schedule he said I'll try to make sure that your lectures in the morning or in the night so you don't get any travel back and forth you can go back to home that's originally was my plan. But the moment I start coming this first day second day, every day goes by I'm more attached to the lobby to the this room to the hallway not to the room where I'm staying in Why? Because few because really it's remind me of these days which is by far way way way more advanced that what I have seen when I visited Medina University what we used to have an Al anon university

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

but that's okay.

00:43:47--> 00:43:59

I think you just never that's that's why you see chef Yasser and yassa will travel in the summer to come to Miami University study with a scholar like him nathi me and then a chef one boughs, but that's fine.

00:44:01--> 00:44:13

By and hamdulillah That is wonderful university I witnessed that in Medina University have brought out to the Muslim Ummah, great scholars and great students knowledge and you just see

00:44:14--> 00:44:21

a sample of that may Allah subhanaw taala protect all of you and bless you and university and all that those who work hard for Islam.

00:44:23--> 00:44:39

One of the things I would like to start with I would say one of the biggest problem students knowledge raise in general also to take away points and Nia intention. A lot of brothers already have spoken to me such as what I can do with this I feel like

00:44:41--> 00:44:56

I'm afraid to be any moron or showing off. And as much as they learn more, my intention became hard to control. And I just want to tell those brothers and sisters as well. What amuro meaningful Hadeeth in his time

00:44:57--> 00:45:00

will happen and even your own

00:45:00--> 00:45:18

Mark dharapani Rahim Allah Allah said polytonal elumelu de la akuna la la la. We start learning the knowledge for other than Allah than the knowledge have changed our intention to make it pure, to make it only for our last panel for Allah.

00:45:19--> 00:45:49

This is the great amount of sin the hell out of them had the $30 company saying something like that the team himself had a struggle with his intention in the beginning. Not only him amuro minium is a man, a man with a mess, if you only 30. So if you had a 30, the one who they used to say he is like a boubakeur, so deep, how the companions looked at Walker, he used to be like a buckler, his time. This he said, my knowledge to share I never struggled with anything as much as I struggled with my intention.

00:45:51--> 00:45:56

Do you want even greater example from the scholars in Malmo and asuna as

00:45:59--> 00:46:06

he said, he was asked, Yes, ma'am. Hello kulu Hadith in palatka, who are whiter who attend a Tubby candelilla

00:46:07--> 00:46:35

one of the students wants to ask him, do you think that every Hadith that you have studied or learned or you wrote or documented or you narrated was for a law 100% in your whole entire life, live in seeking knowledge, the sincerity was absolutely perfect. akula Pharisees, he said to tell you that all the time 100% it was pure 100% intention for Allah. That's a very hard statement to say.

00:46:36--> 00:46:55

Yes, there is a moment of struggle. But that struggle should lead you to success in the end and I promise you that keep that struggle. Whenever you neffs your intention short start start changing remember that fight it and you will win in the end because you are with Allah subhana wa

00:46:57--> 00:47:16

L is has a twin which is the ML the action they cannot be separated. This m should lead you to action should lead you to improve your relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada. This is the ultimate goal of m of knowledge. That is something you can practice something it will come bring you closer to Allah subhana wa.

00:47:18--> 00:47:41

l is the way to Jin as the prophets of Salaam said that Hadith reported in say a Muslim men Paula Bergman who ever seek knowledge, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah will make an easy path for him to gender because of that. So Holla Holla Holla, who Biggie periactin energen any because of the knowledge you will have an easy path to gender in the Day of Judgment

00:47:42--> 00:47:44

of Isa Haman, Hadith morogoro the Allah and

00:47:45--> 00:48:24

the prophet SAW Selim said if Allah Subhana Allah intend good for someone, he will help him to what to understand the religion, maturity level be higher on COVID de COVID de been a basket of the Allah Allah Allah used to cry whenever he read a verse in the Quran, and he couldn't understand it in the first time. Then he tries struggled to understand that the verse then whenever he will be able to understand clearly he will cry, he was asked why he said because I know the moment I will open my heart and my mind to stem this issue. I know that that moment Allah intended good for me and he narrated the Hadith.

00:48:25--> 00:48:29

So every day pass every moment passed by you in this own summit.

00:48:31--> 00:48:33

Just Allah bringing you here to learn,

00:48:35--> 00:48:50

to be able to understand the religion in a better way to be able to add to your end, that means Allah intend good for you and this is something you should be very we are all should be very grateful to Allah subhanaw taala because of it

00:48:51--> 00:48:58

and it should something shake your heart and bring your tears really because who I am do I deserve that

00:48:59--> 00:49:10

I deserve really that that Allah and he is now intending good for me and he allowed me to understand his religion and to be among those who yeah and he carry this Deen

00:49:13--> 00:49:55

upon me so Sol Sol. This religion will be carried by the best of every generation and you now turn to be among the best of every generation as you heard chef reciting to us salata, Nyssa what Allah Subhana Allah said, What Allah cannot tell him what kind of football Allahu la Kalima that Allah has taught you what you're not aware of it. What can you if you know, what's the beginning of the verse? What ends? What are unsaid? Allahu Allah, you can Kitab al hikma Allah have sinned down upon you Mohammed Al Kitab al hikma, the Quran and the Sunnah Al Kitab al hikma the Quran and Sunnah what Allah commanded to contain and he has taught you what you're not familiar with, which is the Quran

00:49:55--> 00:49:59

and Sunnah that the great father of that Allah have given to you the great name of that

00:50:00--> 00:50:13

Allah Subhana Allah has blessed you with. That's why there are so many times Allah talking about M and M was mentioned in Quran and Sunnah referred to in by two words, the first one and in the second one and

00:50:15--> 00:50:59

this the two ways Allah refer to the end to the knowledge, he said buy in and there are so many verses you are familiar with, and also unfair, like and so right. So right, it Toba For example, when Allah subhanaw taala, certainly at the COVID De Soto reverse 122 Leah de facto 15 so they can understand the knowledge also in the sun of the profits are silent the prophets of Salaam said Allahumma Lim who Allah hamasaki houfy de la Lim who we were who Allah, Allah, Masha murder him Allahu taala and Phil Buhari, we don't want to limit that we, that is a solemn pride for Omnibus by saying Allah homophobe de COVID de O Allah, let him have faith in religion, which it means

00:50:59--> 00:51:09

understand the religion the fact it's understanding the religion, when you look carefully to the masala to the issue and try to understand it clearly.

00:51:10--> 00:51:11


00:51:13--> 00:51:40

if this is the case, that is Elman 30, can tell that m is more general than fair. Because fifth it means then that something you struggle to understand that's why Allah never described himself with and fifth rather he described himself with an L because l is something you will observe you will you will you have it, Allah subhanaw taala doesn't need to think or to analyze something to understand it. But at first it's all about analyzing understanding.

00:51:42--> 00:51:53

In general, there is different type of room. There is different type of room, and I tried to put some just notes from here and there I put it in this piece of paper.

00:51:55--> 00:51:57

First one, it's called lumen Masada

00:51:59--> 00:52:43

the knowledge which is the resource of the religion, which is Al Quran and the Sunnah, Al Quran and the book which is related to the and the best of these books will be the books of Tafseer. And soon the Hadith of the prophets of Salaam, the books was collected, the son documented the son of the Prophet, a lamp and the highest level of these books that you will need to be able to know the sources of the religion, the books of Hadith, such as for Tilbury and others, then you have another type room, we call it, lumen mocassin, which I call it the ultimate knowledge, and they are to aqidah and Philip, they are the ultimate knowledge, that's what you should care about the most. I

00:52:43--> 00:53:28

believe this is the ultimate knowledge. This is if you ask all of us here, how many times a person will come to you to ask you a question about a particular generator or era or, or latifi IRA Okay, that's not what the common questions about that what not people need the most people need to know the Akita, I need to know that the fifth, and the most important part in the epi, that sense of apathy, that the heat worshipping Allah alone, and understanding the concept of 808 and avoiding the ship, and the most important concept in fifth alibi that had the soup that and felt that he bought that the act of fortune. So you worship Allah Subhana Allah on the correct way zoob that and

00:53:30--> 00:54:22

then you have another type of loom, it called called Lulu Melissa room and wasa il which is like tools will allow you to understand that this ultimate room, this room lumen was like a solid fifth power it will fail, muster level headed the science of a date and so on Latin Arabic language, but guess what, without the tools you don't have access to open this door to the ultimate to the ultimate room. That's why even though it might be less level, but for him he has to have the minimum from illumine wasa to be able to explore aluminum mocassin the ultimate knowledge the ultimate knowledge then you have in the way in the end in the fourth category, it will be aluminum you can

00:54:22--> 00:54:39

relax that room, which is I call it this extra knowledge is something to beautify your knowledge, like knowing taking torchbearers it's make you a very special because you have a lot of information about the Scott promoting our classes.

00:54:41--> 00:54:42

free advertising by

00:54:45--> 00:54:47

all taking love notes

00:54:50--> 00:54:59

Okay, or taking curse with Sierra with Chef Yasser the history the Sierra, the tweed, all this renewed McCann Miller

00:55:00--> 00:55:49

In general Camelot in in general, this is the fourth category of realm that you keep in mind when you see, when you talk about the Falcon update or talking about specifically, that means you are after knowing the ruling in these issues, the ruling for every each issue that you study. And these issues, I can categorize it to two categories, one nasbla, something happening now you need to know, the ruling related to it. It's not something it's something contemporary, and it's something important to North now right now. And this category itself has two situations, one, that you have to have an immediate answer for it as a student of knowledge, if you need an immediate answer for it.

00:55:49--> 00:55:52

What do you do you go to the Mufti and you ask him,

00:55:53--> 00:56:37

google it now. I'm not in favor of q&a websites and things like that at all, but go to the Mufti and ask them to if the second situation that this naza this issue is a contemporary issues. It's not something related to you personally, you need the hokum in it right now. It is something contemporary, something you see, but you're not necessarily you need the issue, right. The second like credit card, for example, there is a new Islamic bank investment a new transaction exists in the in the field, can I do it, I cannot do it, you know, this is NASA, this new thing, contemporary issues, but studying these issues are related to the roadmap to the scholars to the higher level of

00:56:37--> 00:56:59

student of knowledge to come and study it and analyze it, I remember that with an mg in the assembly of Muslim tourists in America will lie we have gathered, I would say at least five times each time each meeting take more than one and a half hours debating over that issue which is contemporary in America about that

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

refinance the home the prices of the house, which we call it.

00:57:07--> 00:57:08

Not the mortgage.

00:57:11--> 00:57:50

foreclosure, sorry, foreclosure, five meetings, each one more than one and a half hours, is it allowed is not allowed. And everybody will if I say that is over 300 pages of research were written about this in these five meetings, I'm not exaggerating, but Parliament m does not need for yourself a new level does not need to go involve and take because that's not the who is not taking priority, but parliamentarian who haven't advanced who that's these issues should be studied in that level and the higher level as for the issues not contemporary that means you are studying it

00:57:52--> 00:58:40

for understanding it, which is related to you mostly, you study the knowledge of the ruling of this issue, to be educated about it. And even this has two situations. One to be educated about it so you can master it. You can be a Mufti you can be a chef, you can be a teacher tomorrow. That's one level. And the second level which Amina Dora Sato G. So you will study each issue to be able to know what is the right what is the best evidence how to refute this. So you mastering it 100%. So you study from all aspects, all different opinions. But there is another degree which is, I think, related to you as a student of Almagro. And most of you directly, which is there are signs we call

00:58:40--> 00:59:30

it CC, Li Li, you study the ruling, to be able to understand the issue, what is the evidence why he said that? What is the ruling in this, and in this matter, my personal opinion always goes towards studying one method from the modality that exists and try to study it, learn it read the book, which is written in that manner, if you want to master the fifth in general, as a student of knowledge, there are seven kinds of books just to name very quickly, there's type of fifth if you want to be studied one massage, which is maybe not the best way to put it the massage. Maybe you can add to it later on. But this is from the top of my head, the massage, which is that manual books and film. And

00:59:30--> 00:59:46

this manual book should sometimes it was started at that and matassa Yeah, and he authored as a manual, or it could move faster. Because it's a summary of another big book samata Solomon, Aslan Akbar

00:59:47--> 00:59:51

like Azad Minh and I'm sorry, I'm henneberry or what I know exempt and

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

then you go after that explanation to this manual Ricardo de Sadat.

01:00:00--> 01:00:45

sudo dasara. And sometimes the explanation only to explain the word, the word by word what this word means, then there is another type of shuru, which is to explain the method and the required of this method and the opinion in this method, then you go to the list to the to the third level explanation to that manual by telling you the method and the other modalities, like in a movie, for example, if this was made over mythos or karate, then you have the third type, which is footnotes, footnotes, then you have kutupalong holofil, method, H madhhab, that is books talking about the difference of opinion inside them. And then you go to the third to the fifth level, I believe, they call it toss

01:00:45--> 01:01:02

here, which is which opinion inside the method is the most strongest opinion, then you go to move for that in method, the book, which is telling you this is the only this issue in the madhhab he's the only man who said that other madhhab don't share the same opinion with it.

01:01:03--> 01:01:34

And the last level, they call it couteau bill with Fatima and muda he will Ohara that he compare the madhhab with other modahaus exist. I cannot emphasize enough about the important point that Yasser Berg just mentioned about reading, reading, reading reading as much as you can check. If you want to ask him share their his 100 help Andrea has made the master shield in the Muslim world in that time at least to me in reality said READ WRITE researches.

01:01:36--> 01:02:23

Also, I would like to make a comment on something people misuse misko misunderstand Sharon Nassim and Kendall Sofia, I heard this from him a lot. He said yes, there is a statement famous statement to say the worst people those who learnt who are self learner are the people who learn the knowledge from the book. You know, this statement was said in the old days she was upset when the books were not completed. When you have limited number of books, when the alum have access to only certain maybe method or but not in modern days after you have this tremendous amount of knowledge in front of you. Actually today the main way to be added is to read and to read and to read the oola as a

01:02:23--> 01:02:33

Sheltie big said they have the keys to the end but they not necessarily will give you the L in infill kootu lucky my photography security job.

01:02:34--> 01:03:07

So make sure that you don't underestimate the power of reading. Don't ever be miser when it comes to purchasing book. If you want to if you find a book is specialized in one issue, cover it from A to Z buy this book this is a very good book to buy. buy the book which is related to the occasional issue a book about hedge about alpha about Ashura, its most immediate something comes occasionally or annually. Don't ever ever put a book in your library before you reading the index.

01:03:09--> 01:03:20

At least you know what this book is about because if it goes in especially if you have a big library, it will be there a lot and when it comes out from the grave, maybe on the new shore and it will die there

01:03:21--> 01:03:34

Yes. also choose the time to write to read we give reading the worst time of our day when you so dead tired you want to go to bed Are you so hungry waiting for the dinner to read.

01:03:36--> 01:03:54

Read choose good time. You know what what law if it is one hour a week, but be serious about a turn off your cell phone? nobody talked to you, Abner. Josie said that people came to him and he was reading then they said I hope we didn't disturb you but a stupid Can I tell you the truth I was reading and I stopped reading because you can

01:03:56--> 01:04:28

come to Accra kapa haka. So don't don't hesitate to say that don't be embarrassed to say that. Also, as a student of knowledge when you come back from this, make sure that you don't waste time. You know there is times will lie if you take advantage of it. You will in a lot of knowledge, one car, listen to a lot of CDs, a lot of tapes, listen to the Quran and one brother memorize the whole entire Quran from CDs from listening to it in the car, period, nothing else. And it wasn't the time of studying in the college.

01:04:29--> 01:04:30


01:04:32--> 01:04:59

go a little bit early try this, especially the brothers go 10 minutes before then to the masjid and see how Baraka This is will be one brother told me something and I would like to pass it to them a chef and I agree with this brother 100% 100% dissolve here. He is from Michigan. He told me shift that is one thing in this program missing and it was very disappointed that is missing on I agree and I thank him very much. I promised him the three of us

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

We'll never hesitate to take this suggestions. inshallah for the next episode he said I noticed there is no time for reading for

01:05:08--> 01:05:40

some time we have had an actual help of a product to help us to read to listen to the to read it right as a student No, I agree 100% You know what, this is part of your daily life It should be Don't waste your time with ziraat and I don't have time there's otherwise there is a beautiful any categorize for visitation maybe one time after salata will give it to you, but have no pain rahimullah. Nothing should stop you from seeking knowledge. There is a lot of brothers say I was waiting to go overseas I'm making this

01:05:42--> 01:06:15

you know, again, it's personal opinion. One of the biggest fears I have ever seen with my own eyes in in a collecting a hadith related to Philip was a Sunil Kumar on eBay happy Rahim Allah it is an obedia This man has collected in this book what you cannot believe in how he was able to do that. Just wanted to know something about Abu Bakr Al Rahim Allah Abubakar, he used to complain that he doesn't he doesn't have a copy from sunon in SI,

01:06:16--> 01:06:21

either a tirmidhi urban magic, he said, I wish that I have these books.

01:06:23--> 01:06:43

Did you think that stopped him from being the great amount that he is? Yes, maybe you never been to Saudi Arabia to Egypt told us how to study with them. But this should not stop you from being a sea of knowledge. A bit about that. He said Allah will not put Baraka will not put Baraka in the students knowledge if he leaves the shoe of his own town

01:06:44--> 01:07:01

to go to seek knowledge with the shoe outside of his town. Because that shows that the intention there is nothing something not very good with it. If you don't go to the shoe in town and try to learn from them. Don't tell me you're gonna wait until you go to this country or that country to learn.

01:07:02--> 01:07:15

you know be sharp This is something very unique sharp not in the look only you know you know be sharp and the way you look but also want it to be sharp you smart you can you can get things quickly. This is something that in develop and I will end with funny story happened in the time of Avengers poverty Rahim Allah, there is a man who was married to a woman and this woman he loves her so much. And she hates him so much.

01:10:54--> 01:11:18

Yeah, and he say we say she hates his guts that's exactly what it is. She can stand him and one day we got she always say bad words to him make against him. And he never said anything good any better. And he said I don't want to say any bad thing to you. And she kept okay you're not gonna say any bad thing to me. You know what you this he knew that he knew that. One day he said you know what?

And I if you said anything to me, and I didn't say back to you, whatever, you're going to tell me. I'm going to tell you the same. Otherwise your divorce immediate, she said, and

01:11:44--> 01:11:46

she said your divorce?

01:11:47--> 01:11:48

He said

01:11:49--> 01:12:06

because he just said anything you say I'm going to repeat it. So she said you your divorce, your divorce your divorce, he has to say now what? You are divorced your divorce and leave him. So he got stuck. He went to the local.

01:12:07--> 01:12:42

He said, What can I do? He said, You know what? You made an off. If you fulfill your off you have to divorce her. And if you did not fulfill the off, you have to divorce her. Either way you have to divorce this way or that way. So he's stuck. They said tell them there is only one person can tell you a receipt is the state of knowledge like your challah. Are you like him? Mashallah? It'd been generated poverty. They went to injury of injury said yeah, that's just tell her and tetanic in Anna Pollock Toki

01:12:43--> 01:12:50

you are divorced, if I divorce you. Yeah. And you are divorced, if my intention to divorce you.

01:12:52--> 01:13:04

Okay. I've been hurt, later on appeal have been heard about the story. He said, I have better answer for this. He doesn't need to do all this crowd. He says what he said, she said and

01:13:09--> 01:13:12

the woman said, and Kabbalah, though.

01:13:13--> 01:13:18

The woman said the anti anti it's a pronoun, it's a masculine pronoun.

01:13:20--> 01:13:36

Then he said if he told her and tarlac It's a masculine pronoun, it will not be thought of because in order to divorce, he has to say en te, a feminine pronoun. So he said, Tell her and the same word. Exactly. And he's get out of it.

01:13:38--> 01:13:40

Allah said, I have even better than

01:13:44--> 01:14:04

that, you know what, none of them really had? Any the best answer? He said, the best answer for this, that always in you make an off the off always goes with what you intend. So that's my intent. If she said something bad, he will say the same bad things he made against me when

01:14:05--> 01:14:38

he said it came. Obviously if she tells him I need water, it doesn't need tend to say I need water. That's right, which is he said, well, like anything you said, I will say so if she said I need water I need to go to bed does he has to say I need to go to bed and he need water. Now everybody knows that. Because the intention was I will say whatever Drop your gun, whatever bad word curse word you're going to say. So he said in this case, he doesn't need to say anything. She is not divorced at all. And he doesn't need to say anything to her because his intention was only to repeat the bad words that she says

01:14:40--> 01:14:59

what I this example that I'm bringing here to show you that you know what there is so much was left for the people who come later. Don't ever say everything done. I cannot contribute any more to the knowledge will lie in that room. Don't ever underestimate your power. And I love what you just heard from the tissue of the team.

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