Salam Alaikum tilava cattle

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

Alhamdulillah Allah Amin sallahu wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam the statement Kathira to my my bad, we're still reading from Kitab matassa Menaggio Casa de by Muhammad poppadom Rahim Allah Allah Allah on the chapter of knowledge, the foundation of knowledge. We are right now for those who have the English texts with us we are on page 36 inshallah Zoda as we talk about the adversity of knowledge, and the scholars of the era and scholars of the dunya those who have unfortunately evil ways for seeking knowledge and those who are seeking the Accra when come to the knowledge we started with this last last week and we talked about how the Messenger of Allah

00:00:45--> 00:01:29

Allah Sam has warned us against those who seek knowledge only only to be told among the people that they are Marshall knows most knowledgeable, or just to debate with, whether Allah MA or just to brag, with that knowledge against the sofa and the ignorant ones. So all these of course are signs of the aroma of masala Nivea will sue the evil ones. And now we will continue to shallow Tabata Kota Allah with what he considered to be a fad or lemma, aka the scholars of the ACA Bismillah Bismillah R Rahman Rahim salatu salam alayka Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the author, the author really says, The scholars of afterlife know that this world is worthless.

00:01:30--> 00:01:35

And the afterlife is a noble abode. And they are like two wives of men.

00:01:38--> 00:01:45

So scholars prefer the afterlife and their actions do not contradict their words, favoring the knowledge with the greatest benefits.

00:01:47--> 00:02:22

They are inclined towards knowledge that benefits them in the afterlife, and shun away from knowledge that is of little use. So what does that mean? He says it as for the first thing that the scholars of the afterlife, they have specific qualities, because they know that the akhira is noble, and the dunya is happier, which means it's worthless. And then he says that both dunya and akhira, the desires the inclination to the dunya, and data, the desires after the dunya and dakara, he says they fight cuddle routine is like like, Sister Wives basically, they're not always together, they're not on the same page. And even we've seen that in the most righteous in the house of the prophets,

00:02:22--> 00:03:01

Allah won't allow us an mra. That could happen. Because there's there's always this pull. One is each one of those pulling you to one to one side, a dunya is pulling you to that side, the ACARA to put it that side. So the Allameh are between going after this dunya and after the ACA. Some people this acknowledge simply just to get the after the after life, reward and others they go out for the dunya. Now, what does that mean that you cannot really seek the dunya reward as you go into the process of the Ankara? We said No, we answered this question here last week, that someone dilemma they say yes, you have to have a decency for the sake of Allah subhana wa taala. And you should not

00:03:01--> 00:03:37

be asking for money for that URL. And we'll cover that subject at last week. But we just want to understand that those who seek the dunya So seek the knowledge in order just to get the fame and the name and the celebrity status they are doing and those who seek that knowledge for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala even if Allah azza wa jal give them name and fame and status afterwards, but that's as a as a reward from Allah subhanho wa taala. For them in the dunya before the Accra, as long as this does not change their intention does not change their heart, there is no harm in action in keeping that there is no harm in accepting it, it was coming from Allah subhanho wa taala. But

00:03:37--> 00:03:40

pursuing that yourself that when it becomes dangerous now

00:03:42--> 00:04:26

it has been narrated that shocky bulk, bulk the total heart and you have a competent me for a while now. What have you learned a lot and said eight things. The first, let's talk a little bit so we have two individuals over here. Chef tickle Belfry Rahim, Allahu taala, who are Chicago Brahim and Buffy one of the great scholars of the past. And they said that he was actually traveled all around and met a lot of scholars and hola Ma. And he was pursued by so many students like he became so popular as one of the most popular speakers, or are the one that speak SubhanAllah. They penetrate the hearts directly. So there were so many followers like if it was an hour time that following

00:04:26--> 00:04:59

online will be probably in the millions. But back then they say he used to travel and as he travels around, he will be pursued by more than 300 people. Remember 300 people physically going with him wherever he travels Hala. So he's because his words were just so powerful and so beautiful. That will remind the person about the Acura and make the abandoned dystonia. So he said Carla Hatton he said to one of his students had them or some also one of the great scholars of that time called sahip any muda Look, you've been traveling with me for a long time. What do you learn

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

Tell me, what did you benefit from that companionship? Call as a manager myself, I learned from you eight things. Now some of them are they say that these stories did not necessarily maybe happen as we read them in that in the book here. Like there was no, there was no such conversation where the tour speaker says, Hey, what do you learn from me? He goes eight things, and he counted eight things directly. And then some people, they heard that conversation and documented that like that, but they probably they actually they perceive that this conversation probably could happen, and how Assam learn from Belfie? And what are the things that he learned came from his own words. So here are the

00:05:38--> 00:05:59

eight things that he said possibly, I've learned from the companionship of my teacher. Now. The first I looked at the creation and found that everyone has a beloved Malibu. When they go to their graves, they depart their beloved. So I made my good deeds, my beloved so that they could be with me in the grave.

00:06:00--> 00:06:39

What does that mean as your ma? I mean, remember, we talked about the essence of knowledge? What is the essence of knowledge? Is it the folk? Is it to know what is halal haram? And what is the Sahara and what is not Jassa? Or is it Robocon, the heart of the hearts. So he says, This is what I learned from you, maybe I did not learn from you much. Or much, maybe Sierra or history and so on. But I learned these things from the oil cooler. So the first thing he says, I looked around and I found that all people, all people have attachment to someone they consider them their most beloved, and SubhanAllah. That's nice, that's natural. Allah azza wa jal created us with that ability to or at

00:06:39--> 00:07:05

least, the desire to pursue someone that we love, and also to be loved. We want we want to have that in our lives, whether it's a dear friend, a spouse, a parent, a child, we love to be loved, and also seek that love as well too. He goes, I looked at all of that stuff. But then I found out no matter who you love in your life, no matter who you love, and who loves you in this life, once you go to your grave, they leave you.

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

They all leave you and abandon you. It goes except for one thing, your husband, he goes, Oh, my husband had become the most beloved thing for me.

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

Because I know it's not going to abandon. So I want to put love in my husband, which means what in my good deeds, I want to increase my good deeds. I want to make sure that I when I when I do good deeds, I do not I do not nullify these good deeds. I want to make sure when I go to my grave, my beloved stays with me, may Allah make us all Muslim or Bananaman. Number two, the second I looked at the words of Allah when 100 Hassan Al Hawa and prevented the soul from unlawful inclination to the nausea at 7940 and slow to repel this lowly inclination till it became settled in obedience to Allah. He said, I looked into the eye of color light about ACOTA Allah wa NAFSA and will hover and

00:08:00--> 00:08:05

Allah subhanaw taala speaks about who this is something that Allah speaks about, what about the one who's

00:08:06--> 00:08:46

who's successful, who's successful, the one who was one 100 upset and in our Allah subhanaw taala says, When the genitalia this, the place for this individual will be Jana. But what's the meaning of na NAFSA and El Hawa she's like Allah subhanaw taala has made it very clear, you prevent your neffs from pursuing its lowly desires. Now not not pursuing the halal desires, we're talking about the lowly desires, the things that are that impermissible to you so that when I saw that ALLAH SubhanA, Allah was asking me and asked me to elevate myself, to prevent myself from going down with my desires. So I made my battle in this dunya to always fight against my own desires.

00:08:47--> 00:09:28

So that was my sweet battle, my sweet fight, always fighting against my desires to settle with the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala so first thing he says, I met my most beloved, my good deeds and Imam Hassan it is the most beloved thing for me. I wake up for tahajjud it is so sweet, bittersweet. I make wudu when the water is very cold, I still enjoying it. I'm thirsty midday on a summer day on Monday or Thursday while I'm fasting and I love that when I give to the poor even though I know that I might need some of that money later on, but I still give it with with so much joy. So I love my husband and I love the good deeds I live with with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada so I can

00:09:28--> 00:09:40

have them with me in my grave. Then he said that I know that my naps will always pull me down. So I made this battle sweet battle for me so I can always stay with Allah subhanho wa Taala number three,

00:09:41--> 00:09:59

the third, I saw that everyone who owns something that he holds valuable, trust protected. Then I looked at then I looked at the words of ALLAH, my in the warmer in the life of the whatever you have will end but what God has is everlasting sutra 96

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

So every time I add something of value, I directed it to him. So that may remain mine with him. Somehow. I mean, remember, as I read this and listen to this is the profound understanding. Again, that's the true Elmo lie. I mean how many times you read this is how many times you pass by this hadith and, but some of these are Allah ma they have so much insight in these words beyond your basic understanding of things. Because look, I looked into things I found that people they love to save God, the most valuable things for them, they hide them, they put them in saves, they put them somewhere where they know that no one can have access to them. He said I saw I found that when Allah

00:10:40--> 00:11:18

Subhan says in the Quran, man they're coming from and Allah Heba whatever you have in your hand is gonna go away. But whatever you keep with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, it's well guarded because I'd rather put all my valuables all my valuables was ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada for safe garden. So everything I have a value for it in this dunya I gave it away for the sake of Allah azza wa jal to save it with Allah subhanahu wa Tana. This is actually example of how you didn't abuse of Allah Salam when he teaches us what he could call a paradigm shift in terms of understanding the meaning of where do what do you save, and what do you what do you spend the Prophet Salah Salem one day he

00:11:18--> 00:11:37

received a goat meat and he said Salah Salem, give this charity, give this to the people. So by the time he came back home, he said what happened to them it like he was worried that this was still at home. He asked, What do you guys do with the meet? Carlos, I have a Kulu located

00:11:38--> 00:11:40

everything is gone except for the shoulder.

00:11:41--> 00:11:44

He said no. Everything stays except for the shoulder.

00:11:47--> 00:11:54

That is the true meaning of what you save and what you lose what you get for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala is in good hands.

00:11:55--> 00:12:32

And it's going to be well guarded. But what you eat what you consume, it's halal. Not that it's haram. But you got you got the reward just for eating it halal. And that's it, it's gone. It doesn't say for too long. So he's just saying the same thing call, I've noticed that Allah subhanaw says that, whatever you have in your hand somehow is going to going to be consumed. So it's going to be gone. Sooner or later, or what you keep in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala you save God very well. So he said, everything that has a value for me, I'll give it to Allah azza wa jal, whether it's knowledge, whether it's money, time, effort, anything I would love to save, I'll give it to

00:12:32--> 00:12:34

Allah subhanho wa taala. Now

00:12:37--> 00:12:48

the fourth, I saw that people refer to money, nobility and honor, which are all nothing. Then I looked at the words of Allah, in Accra, Malcolm in the lie.

00:12:50--> 00:12:57

Indeed, the noblest of you in the sight of a sight of God is the most righteous. So the 13th

00:12:58--> 00:13:35

and, and worst deeds are righteousness in order to be noble before him. So what he says over here, most people they seek and status in society through through wealth, fame, and name, you know, achievements and so on. They're trying to do that. And as a matter of fact, we see this today actually on online alongside most people, they would like to be famous, they would like to be known in front of the people. So how do you do that? You go, you post all these things. And now there's a new term, when it comes to what is your profession on social media? It's called actually the content creator. What does that mean? I have no idea.

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

You just simply you have a camera, and you just put stuff on and you call yourself content creator, right, or digital career, whatever that is. Eventually, the point of all of that is to create Of course, following and people start recognizing you, and the pleasure, the pleasure of these individuals they see as they walk through a mall, or in the streets, or in any place where we recognize them, Oh, I know you from this place or that place. It is just so much pleasure from being organized by the people. He said, Look, people they look at look without recognition and in what in money, achievements, their family line, like royalty and so on. Because but I realized this is

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


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

When you look at the history of mankind, it all it's all nothing it disappears, those who are rich, they can become poor. Those are ones royalty, patola disasters, war revolutions, this and that. The name is Gonzalez it's over. So it all changes, because I knew that the true meaning of nobility as Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke about in the Quran is in is in righteousness. Because therefore I wanted to really reach that level of nobility, by pursuing righteousness, all my life is about achieving righteousness. May Allah Subhana Allah make us and others righteous or Bananaman. Now.

00:14:51--> 00:14:52

The fifth

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

I saw that people are jealous of each other, that I looked at the words of ALLAH Nukus some Nabina Muhammad

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

Maisha the major

00:15:02--> 00:15:34

we have a portion among them their livelihood. Now he says call for India, right. And NASA has been absent. I've seen people, they will come and envy each other. They envy each other. Why is that? What's the meaning of envy anyway, so someone has envy in somebody else. So the relevant they talk about envy, and as different categories. So when you envy somebody, and the worst type of envy, the worst type of envy is when you wish, when you wish, what people have in their hand to go away, and doesn't have to come back to you.

00:15:35--> 00:15:41

Like, you don't want them to have what they have. And it doesn't matter if you have it or not. That's the worst thing.

00:15:42--> 00:15:57

Why? Because I mean, subhanAllah if you don't, if you don't need it, why do you have to bother what they have it themselves. I mean, it's understood as someone who wishes for what they have to go to go to them. I like I wish to have that car myself, right. But then when they say I wish they have an accident,

00:15:58--> 00:16:26

just as a that such an evil thought, and evil intention along Stan. So he says, I've seen people do this hazard. And so call on Allah subhana wa Taala he says, Nanaka Santa, by no measure to me says we have, we have made this division of marriage among the people by divine ordinance like Allah so has said that this is divine divine plan. We made these people rich, we made these people poor, we made these people, middle class and so on. Now, obviously,

00:16:27--> 00:16:59

we put the effort and we put the effort but Allah facilitates, so sometimes Allah subhanaw facilitates opportunities for people to be rich, some people that Allah has facilitated a path for them to be in the middle class, and other people, their wealth is going to be a little bit constructed as a test for them, all of them been tested. So he said when I realized everything, everything is already by divine plan. I stopped pursuing hazard. There is no need for me to envy anybody. Why because what's the point? instead? What do I do? I ask Allah subhana wa Tada from Formula.

00:17:00--> 00:17:04

As Allah says, In the Quran, what are the men know my father Allah Who Ba,

00:17:05--> 00:17:44

ba ba ba Komaba do not pursue what Allah subhanho wa Taala has favored other people, you know, overview and then he says God, Allah subhana wa Tada was ALLAH Hammond fugly. Instead you need to ask Allah azza wa jal directly from his father. So if you see somebody wealthy and rich, what do you say? Your Allah provide me that wealth that will make me you know, more charitable, Allah, they'll be grateful to you and so on. So ask Allah subhanho wa Taala if you see somebody hamdulillah Allah bless them with a with a with a healthy family and the kids mashallah mother, her father, because our mother righteous and so on. Ask Allah era, I asked you, for my children to be her father, I was

00:17:44--> 00:17:47

fortunate to be righteous, you're a Brahmin, that which is will be obedient to me that dunya and

00:17:48--> 00:18:12

you ask ALLAH SubhanA from the Father, don't go and pursue you know these people and start envying them for the blessing that they have. So he says, Look, when I realize everything comes from Allah azza wa jal, there is no need for me to pursue other people and other people now. And by the way, one of our biggest problems in our society today, one of our biggest problems is this issue, the issue of hazard. And unfortunately, it's been multiplied and magnified by social media.

00:18:14--> 00:18:25

One of the biggest problems, and according to one of the speakers, actually, they call, it's called the rubber of all happiness. The rubber of all happiness is what is social comparison.

00:18:26--> 00:18:31

Everything you have in your possession is beautiful, until you compare it to someone else.

00:18:33--> 00:18:45

Everything that you possess is good. But once you start compared to other people that will realize, sorry, it loses its, its, its flavor loses its value in your hand completely.

00:18:46--> 00:19:24

Even when you go and you had a beautiful, beautiful vacation, you traveled for a month, you went to an exotic destination, you took all these readings and picked up the joy in every aspect of your trip. You come back home, you look on social media, somebody wants somewhere else, and you're like, Oh my God, why did we do that? We should have gotten that place and that's the destination. What's wrong with your trip? It was so good, right? But once you start comparing it to other people, it loses its value. So that's why if you would like to live that and Hala very peaceful life, stop looking at other people and even the messenger of Allah so Allah Solomon's instructed us to live a

00:19:24--> 00:19:29

ceremony in the Hadith colossal Allah Allah wa sallam con la Tambo Elan home folk welcome.

00:19:30--> 00:19:59

Well, I couldn't do what I'm gonna how I'm doing accumulate, Allah says don't amatola Aliko do not look at those who are above you in matters of dunya in matter of dunya do not look at those who are above you. He said Salah Salem rather you should look at those who are below you. Li Allah tells the Rahmatullah Wa alaykum otherwise you're bound to scorn the blessings of Allah subhanho wa taala. They bless you. If you then look down upon his name in matters of Africa, Rado, what do we do? We look at those who are above us.

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

Not with the eye of envy but ripped out, which means we wish that we are at the same level as well, like they are. So don't compare yourself and matters of the ACA with those who are less like people who told you you have to Why don't you come to the masjid? Because ya this I pray

00:20:14--> 00:20:26

Subhanallah mela bless you, but then why you compare yourself to that level? No, you need to always pursue that which is best in matters of the Aclara. But as of dunya, Hamdulillah, for whatever Allah bless you now,

00:20:28--> 00:20:33

the sixth, I saw them having enmity towards each other, to they looked at the words of Allah

00:20:35--> 00:20:47

in your shaytan and Akuma are the ones who who are do indeed, shaytan is an enemy to you. So take him as an enemy, and stop having enmity towards them and made

00:20:48--> 00:20:51

it makes it done by only enemy. Now,

00:20:52--> 00:21:13

when it comes to family, unfortunate family feuds, it is so sad to see sometimes brothers and sisters in a boycott each other, don't talk to one another. And they, they pose enmity towards one another long, Stan for whatever reason. It's now worth it. It's all matters of dunya. And here, he says, Look, I see people always fighting with each other. They have so many enemies in their lives.

00:21:14--> 00:21:49

And obviously, when you have enemies in your life, what are you going to do, you can always keep your guards up. So you're always exhausted. Because you don't know what this person is going to say what this person's going to do. So you're always worried about all these people when they're going to attack you again. So therefore exhaust yourself, he goes, Look, I want to live a peaceful life I live in peace. So I made peace with everybody. And I want after the one enemy that Allah Subhana Allah says to me to be what to watch for and be careful with. Because the ayah is very clear in the shaytaan Allah Kuma do look I mean, there's exclusivity over here. Allah subhana wa has mentioned

00:21:49--> 00:22:29

this as the exclusive at our exclusive enmity in a shaytaan. Allah Komodo den Satan is exclusive view is exclusive enemies to him, like he made himself enemy to you. But I do I do Allah sponsors that take him as an enemy. When ALLAH says, take the shotgun as an enemy, what does that mean? Do you listen to the show plan to ally with the shaytaan? Do you compromise with a shaytaan? You know, conversation? Nothing. So whatever whispers come to you from the shaytaan. You say oh, the biller, I'm going to share to animaljam never ever align yourself with the shaytaan. So he says he look if you would like to feel that peace in your life, stop, stop that that enmity you have around you

00:22:29--> 00:22:32

forget about the people, the real enemy is a shaper now.

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

The seventh,

00:22:36--> 00:22:46

I saw that they humiliate themselves in the request for provisions that I looked at the words of Allah or mom in the button, fill all the Illa Allah is

00:22:48--> 00:23:25

and there is no creature on earth but that upon God is its provision and focused on his right spawn me and left my property to him. Now what does that mean over here? He said, Look, I saw people they humiliate themselves for the for the money for making live or they make a living like they just kill themselves for it. It says But I realized ALLAH SubhanA wa ADRA says that I guarantee your risk for you. When I learned that Allah guaranteed my risk for me. Therefore I started working on pleasing Him, knowing that he is going to provide for me Subhana wa komati promised. Now what does that exactly mean? Does that mean that you're gonna need to quit your job, or high paying job or not even

00:23:25--> 00:24:05

pursuing a better career? No, that's not that's not what he means by him. What he means here is that people unfortunately, they attach their heart, they attach their heart to their job, they attach their heart to the paycheck, because they think they think that there is comes from this job that is comes from this paycheck. And as a result, they humiliate themselves for it. But if you believe that this job, this paycheck is nothing but an instrument is nothing but a means towards you know, make a living, because where this is coming from, from Allah Subhana Allah is the One who facilitate this job for you. If you attach your heart Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, then Allah azza wa jal will make

00:24:05--> 00:24:42

that as easy for you, it's written is going to come to you. But if you always worry, I'm gonna get laid off, I'm gonna get actually fired, I'm gonna lose this, I'm gonna lose that. So you always worry about the risk event you're gonna humiliate yourself to the, to the job, to the profession, to the contract to whatever that is. And it ruins everything for you, your personal life, your spirituality, totally relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala he doesn't mean by that, to abandon your job and just sit there because Roscoe is going to come to you, he goes, No, I just attached my heart to Allah subhanho wa Taala even when might when I do my job, Allah will provide for me will

00:24:42--> 00:24:57

end that also our Sahaba Della. Terra, the best example for us that compared to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam Do you guys know that some of the companions of the Prophet Salla Sam, were some of the most rich, the richest people probably of all time, if you compare it to our time, obviously, who among the Sahaba you know, there were Richard Yama

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

as well

00:25:00--> 00:25:36

Elon, as much as possible Anton army, he bought the waterwell for the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he gave away an entire caravan that came during famine because he made millions of dollars in that moment, but he gave it all for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. And subhanAllah when I read about these stories, it's like, where is this coming? Where is this money coming from? He gave everything for the sake of Allah azza wa jal, he said made money. Still, he was making money. Rhodiola Anwar and he was one of the most righteous people on Earth. Elba cross the deal. He gave all his wealth. And he was one of the most righteous people he will still come get some highs was back again.

00:25:36--> 00:26:14

updraft might have enough for the long run one of the 10 people the promises and promises Jana he was known to be so clever that he could sell you he could so clever marketing and selling he could sell the desert, the desert sand as gold because he can really convince you to buy it for gold. This how clever he was gelato and who are the still they were the most righteous people. So I don't want this to associate righteousness with poverty. Like say in order for you to be righteous you have to accept that the poor No, there is no such thing as a matter of fact, in this in our sin in our deen the Prophet saw Sam he used to seek refuge with Allah subhanho wa Taala from poverty. Clever Oh,

00:26:14--> 00:26:56

they become non photo, I scribbled you do from from photo and he also mentioned as Cooper so one could lead people to commit cover. So there is no virtue in being poor. But at the same time, there is no virtue attaching yourself on your heart to the job itself and to the dollar itself rather to Allah subhanho wa Taala and Hey There we read of the Allah TerraNova the messenger of allah sallallahu sallam said in Rohan kudos Karna for the fury like Jibreel inspired to me. And now we'll enter moto enough soon hearted, so furious Kochava Jarrah, no soldier perish from this world until it fulfills these two things. Risk ah, your provision will Agera and your term, no one is going to

00:26:56--> 00:27:19

die young, no one dies old, you die when the time comes. And no one dies like in any of their provision. Like they didn't enjoy you know, the their job or their salary or their wealth or this and that, no one when the time comes, it comes. So therefore we know for sure that it's coming. And Allah guaranteed that, but our job, our pursuit of our careers and so on is nothing but the means to collect the risk of Allah subhanho wa taala. Now,

00:27:20--> 00:27:21


00:27:22--> 00:27:59

saw that they rely on their businesses manufacture and bodily health. So I relied on a lot. So that actually adds to it to the what we just mentioned earlier is like I've seen everybody is putting their trust in their business, and their profession and their skills and their degrees and their certification. It said I put my trust in Allah subhana wa Narinder job, I put my trust in Allah Subhana Allah. So these are the eight things he said, I learned from my teacher, and is different. As you guys can see, there's a very, very valuable Subhanallah extremely valuable things. I hope that after we're done from the session, you guys go back again to these eight items, please go back

00:27:59--> 00:28:11

these items, write them down for yourself, put them somewhere, remind yourself this is the profound knowledge. This is the profound knowledge you understand the meaning of this life properly. Allah subhanaw gives us understanding of anatomy, keep going.

00:28:13--> 00:28:44

scholars whose goal is the afterlife should withdraw from the Sultan's and stay away from their presence. Now, this is actually a very special point is bringing over here, relevant to their time more than our time. Back in the days back in the days, during the of course, the monarchs system of their time. The Allameh, the Salatin, I would say the governors, the Khilafah, the Amir's, they always they always sought legitimacy, of course through the Allama.

00:28:45--> 00:29:24

In order for them to stay in their positions, they have to convince the people that they're legitimate rulers. And of course, that's not going to come until the scholars, the scholars, give them their rubber stamp, that they are legit. So that's why there was always always confrontation between the aroma and the O'Meara, the Amara, the political leadership always wanted the religious leadership to give them legitimacy. So they always sometimes in a, in a form of active affinity, such as getting married from their children. So you see some of the O'Meara, the Khalifa, for example, his son was made the daughter of one of the LMR, for example. And they try to create this

00:29:24--> 00:29:53

kind of arrangement in order for them to bring this alliance between the scholars and the Philip and O'Meara. But at some point, of course, when it started becoming very widespread, that's when the Allama they didn't want to associate themselves with the with the political leadership. Yes, they gave them their their blessing. They give them their baya and their pledge, but I don't want to be associated with the with these gatherings. Otherwise, if I go there, it's a fitna for me. So he's referring to this time back then today is democracy. It don't like the Khalifa over here.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

Basically, the Emir over here, what do you do? You can criticize it? You can vote them out.

00:30:00--> 00:30:32

Something like that, right? So it's a different system. But that's what he says that those who go and pursue the pleasure of the O'Meara and the leaders, they're endangering their deen and their image, which is true, because back then somehow you go that is fitna. It's a big fitna to be close to the Amara. So what it says over here tall woman suffer to LML ACARA, the science and the characteristic of the scars of the ACARA. They don't associate themselves with the political issue too much. They don't go too close to the politicians, because it will corrupt them. That's what it says, now keep going.

00:30:35--> 00:31:14

The second Foundation, or wait a minute, are we done? Oh, wow. So there is a lot of x in the Arabic text. Still, there is much more. Let me read it. And I'm gonna explain to each other from this text over Shala next week when we come we're going to continue we're gonna we're gonna start the second Foundation, which is the NRC because of the purification act, but let me read the out of a textbook as it actually is very important here. Hi, Carla. Hi, Dave Radi Allahu Tehran, a Yakumo mark of a Phaeton. He says however, the concern of the prophets Allah Sam says beware of the positions of fitna that do not expose yourself to places and positions of fitna meaning trials and ordeals for

00:31:14--> 00:31:35

yourself. Kala Mahi he was asked what are these things? What are these possession of fitna called abode O'Meara Ababa Amara, the gates of the governors are the gate of the leaders. Colored Harajuku model me fossa, oval credit, where kumara Sufi, he goes, you enter the place you enter the palace of the Amin, and you hear something from the Emir. And you feel obliged to say that's true.

00:31:37--> 00:32:15

You feel obliged to say that's true. Because you know, if you say no, in front of all these people, you're probably going to be in trouble. So you start becoming anxious, unfortunately, an enabler of these lies just to save yourself or even just to get the status with that. I mean, what goddess Edelman was Abraham Allah, either ultimate Allah my actual Amara, Fahad Romanov, and the wholeness. That's a big a big word actually. It goes, be careful. Satan will say be careful if you've seen the Harlem frequency, the doors and the palaces of the O'Meara and the leaders called Fahad Rahman of analysts, he might be a thief. What does that mean? Thieves in terms of money, probably because he

00:32:15--> 00:32:46

goes there probably just to get the gifts from them yet. Or unfortunately, the shaytan I mean, he still is a man has been stolen class. And he goes there to justify for the Emir and the politicians what they do, and he gets a return to that of course gifts from this Amara Wirkkala by the self in Nicola to see women dunya home che and Ella cyberMonday Anika of Dalaman. Because look, you're not going to get from the dunya as much as they're going to get from your Accra. What does that mean? You go you're good from them. Dunya

00:32:47--> 00:32:55

but unreturned to take their dunya there take it away from your iman and from your Accra, like the ruining you basically walk on

00:32:56--> 00:33:35

one Mustafa to LML ACARA. And here's another point, because the one of the signs of the characteristic of the dilemma of the ACA, Allah azza wa jal fatwa, you do not rush in given fatwa. You don't rush in giving fatwa. Well, Allah you have to elaborate communists, a hatter who and you only get fatwa of what you're absolutely sure about this information or the answer. Work at Coronavirus celebra. himolla is the devil own and fed to a hotter jell o with some of the stuff in the past they used to push against the given fatwa. So it keeps going around until it goes back again to them. Like they say don't go on Asha Quran. So you got to check for it because no go Astra

00:33:35--> 00:33:45

Falon and you're gonna go Astra Firaon until it goes to the first one. They keep going in circles basically. So what he says over here Don't rush into give him five to an hour there's mashallah given that was the easiest thing.

00:33:46--> 00:33:50

And when people want to give an answer, what do you say so honestly, I don't know. But I think who cares?

00:33:52--> 00:34:28

I hear that a lot. And especially you see that on the online like look, I don't claim that I'm a che or Imam of the but I think or in my opinion, who wants European in this manner? With the realm we need to knowledge? What are the two understanding from the Quran and Sunnah of the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam Ali wakad Abraham I'm gonna be Laila Rahim Allah. Muhammad Abdullah was one of the tabs when he met many Sahaba de la and he got himself he said quite attractive. You had to imagine me It was sheer madness. Hi Rasulullah. He said Allah said he goes I made more than 120 Plus, from the comparison of the prophets of Allah Selim Mahajan. Yes. You said on hydrogen alpha two ah

00:34:29--> 00:34:59

Tilawat. The Unaka hookah Hadelich. No one of them was asked about a hadith or a fatwa. But he said he would wish that someone else will give the answer. Like I don't have to give the answer myself. instead of rushing to give the answer they will push it push themselves to somebody else. Some call to Maka Maka, el amor. And then he says now unfortunately matter is different. So alhamdulillah if the Dami acquirement had their own L L million, he goes now the matter is that many people will claim to have knowledge, your demon

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

00:38:38--> 00:38:44

Shall we move to Jama Roma heckum right now. And we are starting on page I believe 109 Right.

00:38:46--> 00:38:50

Is it or 104 in his words, wherever.

00:38:51--> 00:38:51


00:38:52--> 00:38:55

let me just make sure that we're on the right page

00:39:04--> 00:39:07

so this must be the drummer who was reading for us last week.

00:39:08--> 00:39:10

104 Okay, so it's about 104.

00:39:15--> 00:39:21

Yeah, which one was blue for? The blue one? Okay, let's start from the Russia.

00:39:22--> 00:39:27

In conclusion, so about one page 104 What it says In conclusion,

00:39:29--> 00:39:33

Miss Milan salat wa salam ala Rasulillah. Certainly as mine,

00:39:35--> 00:39:59

the author even Roger Rama Hola. He says, in conclusion, Allah and His messenger did not leave anything permitted or forbidden without clearly explaining it. But some of it is more obvious and evident than others. No doubt remains about that whose clarity is plainly apparent

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

and well known, and which is known necessarily to be a part of the deen. And no one is no one in any land in which Islam is dominant has any excuse to be ignorant of it, such as the obligation of the repairs, for example, the provision of zinna prohibition of alcohol everywhere around the world, everywhere you go Muslims, they know these things. That's what Maluma did Bill Dora. So there is no doubt in these matters.

00:40:30--> 00:41:15

The things which are not plainly clear, some of them are well known to those who know, the Sharia in particular. And the people of knowledge are unanimous as to its permissibility or prohibition. But yet, they might be obscure to some of those who are not of them. So it says that there's a category of people, there is no doubt in their minds about the halal and haram Is it the LMR Allah, so call them the rasuna Filon. Those are profound knowledge. So there is no doubt doubt for Maris to them is doubtful to other people, like the layman, for example, they don't know the details of this matter. So it's doubtful to them, but among the Allama, they all agree on this matter, they all understand

00:41:15--> 00:41:51

the minimum. Now, there are other things which are even not so well known to those who know the Sharia. And they disagree as to whether they are permissible or not. That is for various reasons. So we talked about this last week, if you guys remember, say that among the alumni themselves, if it's not very obvious to everybody equally, they will have some doubt for marriage. And that's when they have some differences of opinion. And why do we have the Filipina we mentioned many things for that and you mentioned them there, we're gonna go over quickly inshallah Tal, some people, they don't have access to the same knowledge. Because back in the day before the documentation of Hadith

00:41:51--> 00:42:23

dilemma, they transmit transmit the knowledge through oral transmission, somebody would have access to knowledge that others didn't have. And as a result, they formulate opinions different from one another. Sometimes they would, they would have access to the same knowledge to the same Hadith probably, but they argue about the validity of the Hadith. So some they deem it to be authentic. Some they say that's actually not authentic. Sometimes they both agree that it's all authentic, but then they have now an understanding of one of them comes before the other one or after the other one. So there is a chronological order that makes one of them say this one abrogated. So they take

00:42:23--> 00:42:58

the larger one and they leave the former one. And the other one, they say no, we don't actually say anything, is this to be true. So they go with the former one. So they have differences of opinion among the Obama and other LMR they have difference in understanding of this. They all agree it's authentic, but then it's a matter of non human capacity, how they interpret that that's a different thing. So this is what he means by so when it comes to a halal way will haram or Halal is clear, Haram is clear, but then we have doubt on matters. So the Harada is clear, and the Haram that is clear. All the Ummah knows about it Muslims, that were there actually scholars among scholars, you

00:42:58--> 00:43:28

should all know that, such as the obligation, the five daily prayers, or even actually the provision of xenon alcohol, but then we have things that are only obvious and clear to the Allama all of them. But then we have some other issues even among the aroma different there's a difference of opinion. And there's ambiguity based on these reasons that we mentioned earlier. So this is what he's talking about in regard to Hadith number six and halal 1,000,000,100 billion Halal is clear and Haram is clear. We're going to move on right now in sha Allah Allah to page 107

00:43:29--> 00:43:35

Page 107. So, the author just put it on the screen first inshallah go for it

00:43:37--> 00:43:54

explained ambiguity as a position in between that which is permissible and that which is forbidden as an example, those things which are permitted outright and forbidden outright, he said

00:43:55--> 00:44:11

whoever guards himself against ambivalent Matters has gone to the utmost limit in seeking to be clear in his beam and his owner. Sometimes he explained it

00:44:13--> 00:44:20

ambiguity as the mixing of things which are permissible with those which are forbidden

00:44:22--> 00:44:28

word exactly what Pedja This is one of seven what are the top or the bottom? It's

00:44:30--> 00:44:59

explained the ambiguity Yes. Okay. So remember how to him Allah Allah when he was telling God about what's the meaning of ambiguity it's a status between halal and haram what we know today as call we call the gray area. So when the halal is not clear, it go to the glare area on the Haram is not clear goes in the gray area. And we mentioned earlier that this kind of ambiguity not because the merits ambiguous itself is to our understanding, so the Roma they say no, it's not ambiguous, or the other people they say it is actually so here it says

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

And as for the believer, your job and your duty is to do what is try your best to avoid these doubtful matters to avoid these doubts, rumors from the takapa customer, ideally wherever they if you do so, and Hamdulillah, then you save yourself from any blame in the dunya and in the ACA, but is that is the case when it comes to the subject of

00:45:22--> 00:45:42

professions? He says it clearly the transactions transaction with someone you know, who's whose wealth, there is both permitted and forbidden property mixed together is another branch of this. If most of his property is forbidden, then argument

00:45:44--> 00:46:12

or not, okay? Remember, said one ought to avoid it unless it is something insignificant, or something unknown. Our people differ in two ways as to whether it is disapproved or forbidden before we get there to the classification of these manners. So what does that mean? That's for us? Well, we talked about it last week. If someone has a job that is actually mixed with halal and haram, you work in Walmart, for example. And Walmart has so many

00:46:13--> 00:46:54

merchandisers over there. Some of it is halal silver is haram. You exclusively work in the halal section, you work, let's say in the garden section, or what he did with his word plants and, and tools and stuff. Absolutely halal, but where you're getting your, your, your salary from the Walmart for the corporation, right, which includes the sale of alcohol, the sale of pork, the sort of other haram items and so on. Some people maybe they're dealing it with in the midsection, or the delivered as a cashier, for instance, you're going to have to pass to scan sometimes the bottle of wine for instance. So depends on how close you are to the Haram element. This is how much the Haram is mixed

00:46:54--> 00:47:37

with that with that provision. So he says over here, look, and there are different difference of opinion, some Allama they say actually, if it's mixed with any form of haram that is haram. But the majority of development, which is the opinion of Anja assembly of Muslim jurists of America, that it depends on how much haram mix in the actual job. So for example, if someone works for, let's say, Uber Eats, or DoorDash Your job is to deliver food right? Now, when you go, you're gonna go on in and pick up the food, you might know what's in the bag. And you might not know what's in the bank. Depends on which restaurant you're gonna go to, right. So in this case, am I allowed to work for

00:47:37--> 00:48:16

DoorDash? Should I investigate and say, Hey, what's in the order? And if it's helpful, I will deliver it as haram I will say stuff for Allah. You see, so that's what the argument is. If you work for a gas station, and you sell gas, right, but you also serve other stuff in the convenience store. So there's so much they're sold over there. Halal haram items, there's one alcohol there's a lottery tickets. There are many other things you know that people they sell there it could be haram. So is it permissible to work in a gas station? So the other mother said what she meant Muhammad Rahim Allah, Allah He goes, look at the percentage of the halal or haram element in that profession.

00:48:17--> 00:49:00

If the element is insignificant, then hamdulillah It's okay. But if not, and that's when he has to have multiple opinions among the Roma. Some they say you're, you're obligated to calculate the Haram element or at least haram percentage and give it away in a form of charity. You get away in the form of charity and others they say no, you have to quit it altogether completely. So it really depends. Unless the job itself in its core is considered haram job likewise, if someone works for example, in a club with Mr. Working as a bouncer on a club, for example, the door Are you allowed to do that?

00:49:01--> 00:49:45

I'm just about to go to gym. Ah, right. I mean, the whole business itself from top to bottom is a stop for life. It's something haram so therefore that does not You're not supposed to be there at all. If someone is working, let's say in in a casino, or the job that is in the casinos work, it's gambling. So it's 100% Haram even if you work as a guard or you work as a janitor in that place and so on. That is still also considered haram. What about working in for example, in the financial sector, I working for a bank for example, the same thing the bank's most of course, it gets money from what from entrance, fiduciary so anything that comes back to you as a as a in that profession

00:49:45--> 00:49:59

comes from from the river. Now some people they say like what about if I work in the IT section? I have nothing to do with the contracts. I don't sign any contracts. I don't recruit people to pay for this or that I have not do this. My job is just at the back end. Just the maintenance of the

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


00:50:01--> 00:50:43

the website and this and that and so on. So the fatwa of Muslim assembler, most of us of America Ambria is actually is this still considered actually a prohibited job, unless the person has absolutely no other profession at the time. So, as they continue on this job, they should be pursuing something different. And not, you know, just go lazy and comfortable sitting until I find a job needed to pursue getting out of it, because it's considered actually a haram profession. Because again, the essence of work in a bank is comes all from the river regardless of what position you are in, actually in, in that bank. So once again, if someone asks, What kind of job that you do is look,

00:50:44--> 00:50:52

what is the element of haram in there? And I'll ask you about the gas station. For example. What do you guys think about the gas station? What's the element of haram? And then what's the percentage?

00:50:55--> 00:51:01

Is it is it 60% 30% 10%? How much haram versus hallander?

00:51:03--> 00:51:05

Depends on the gas station right? With buches.

00:51:06--> 00:51:19

There is so much money besides the Haram element, but it was any of those corner gas stations probably maybe the 30% 40% was haram element, because there's so much sale of alcohol, take a lottery ticket for example.

00:51:21--> 00:51:32

Cigarettes and other stuff and so on, in addition, of course to the gas Allah Allah, but that's what the Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah speaking about over here, and you're going to Bhushan, the raja Rahim Allah is going I mentioned the two opinions go for it.

00:51:34--> 00:51:58

If most of his property is halal, it is permitted to transact with him and to eat from his world and Hadith narrated from earlier or their loved one that he said concerning the stipend granted by the ruler, there is no harm in it. That which he gives you of the halal is more than

00:52:00--> 00:52:05

that which he gives you of the Haram but as I've been aware, if you know somebody's work and

00:52:07--> 00:52:14

kind of like Shubha job, a job that is mixed with halal and haram and they invite you for dinner should you go or not

00:52:17--> 00:52:23

should ask what person is the hara the job is right. If someone works for gas station, someone works for

00:52:25--> 00:53:04

again works for a grocery store that sells haram and halal. And they invite you over for dinner or for lunch, would you go or not? So based on this opinion, he says you should go it's okay because I would assume that my portion of that hospitality comes from the halal he gives the example here and the other one was asked about you know, the the money that you get from the from the ruler because back then they said most of that wealth is actually a Serb you know, and take by force. So most of us will be haram, because that's not true. Most of what they give you is coming from the hull handler diamond, so you're fine. You shouldn't be okay. But once again, it's a matter of it's a

00:53:04--> 00:53:14

matter of Bora over here. However, we're gonna see that he's gonna say what if the, all the world is coming from haram? Should you accept that invitation or not? Let's do it. He says to God,

00:53:15--> 00:53:47

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam and his companions used to transact with those who associate partners with Allah and with the people of the book, knowing full well that they do not avoid everything which is forbidden. If the matter is not clear, then is the ambiguity and scrap of business is to give give it up. Sophia. Sophia. Now, Rahim Allah said,

00:53:48--> 00:54:28

that doesn't please me. And I prefer that one gives it up. So what has been said? What's the position from these manners? Should you leave them and give them give them up for the sake of Allah? subhanho wa taala? Or should you say, No, it's still ambiguous. It's not 100% Haram. So I should actually use that. Because look, if it's, it's a matter of sugar, pal Allah otaku, you are allowed to take it or consume it, but Allah which means the piety of the heart, is by leaving it and giving it up for the sake of Allah subhanho wa taala. So if you are going over him, Allah will sell cod, lower Devonian Derek like I don't like to use it. I don't like to consume it. I'd rather give it up

00:54:28--> 00:54:35

for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala is there an obligation to do that? No, but that's a sign of piety and the heart now

00:54:36--> 00:54:38

because he's gonna bring a second opinion now.

00:54:39--> 00:54:43

As Aubrey and Macoun both said,

00:54:44--> 00:54:51

it is not hard to eat from from it, as long as it is not known especially

00:54:52--> 00:54:59

that it is forbidden. If one doesn't specifically know that, that in

00:55:00--> 00:55:12

The others will there is something forbidden but that one does know of some ambiguity there is no harm in eating from it Armand

00:55:14--> 00:55:20

Muhammad said stated that in the transmission from

00:55:21--> 00:56:00

from him of humble this visit he's talking about the source of the source of it's coming from Amazon humble from a transmission that's coming from one of his students humbled that what he's saying over here he said look, if it's if it's not haram completely, like if you're not the money is not River. All of it completely. He says you need to avoid if it's all completely reversed avoided. But if it's ambiguous because it's okay if you would like to consume it, unless you know for sure, absolutely. That this is coming from haram. So that's the open over him. If you have the knowledge that It's haram for you didn't stay away from it. Like I remember Schelotto Mira Mo, LOL Darla, he was asked

00:56:00--> 00:56:22

about because his opinion about the the meat of the People of the Book, that it's actually considered okay to eat. So when you come to the west, he was asked about eating meats from the market. Here. He goes, it's okay. Because it's a country that's predominantly people of the book. So one of the students one time he asked me, it was cardio chef ColorShift. But they don't slaughter properly. They don't slaughter that properly. He goes, Are you sure about this?

00:56:23--> 00:56:28

So the man is kind of like, I'm pretty much sure he goes for you. It's haram to eat it.

00:56:31--> 00:57:04

Because because you are sure, and your abs that the absolute knowledge, then you don't eat it. But for everybody else, they become a lesson that it's supposed to be valid until proven to be otherwise. subpar. So that's an interesting answer. I remember actually hearing it, you're just like, Wow, I've never heard that before. Like, if you have the absolute knowledge that it's wrong, then you don't do not approach it. But if it's an adult tomorrow, for others, it's up to them, the piety of the heart, stay away from it. But if you would like to consume it, that's okay. There is one issue here happens among the people is they always use difference of opinion as a justification

00:57:04--> 00:57:05

that is halal.

00:57:06--> 00:57:27

People would have come to difference of opinion. They always go with the lenient one. And they say, You know what? Okay, if is there a difference of opinions? Hello. It doesn't matter what kind of difference of opinion we have, even if the difference of opinion is actually is between a strong strong opinion and extremely weak opinion. So you said they differ among themselves. So they rather go with the weak

00:57:28--> 00:57:49

just because it's easier and convenient than going with the with the more conservative opinion. It's not a matter of weakest or strongest actually, it's a matter of what is applicable to the evidences. And then eventually at the end, the fatwa, as a province has some sort of stuff they call Bucha. When after kanessa will have to check your heart, even if he will give you the answers now. Now, let's move on to page.

00:57:51--> 00:57:53

Page Number 109. Is 109.

00:57:57--> 00:58:02

Is this Bismillah where it says in his words, in his words?

00:58:03--> 00:58:12

In his words, some of my money is sullen, said whoever hurts himself against ambivalent Matters

00:58:14--> 00:58:56

has so he refers to the set with a prophet Salah Salem Padma taka Shewhart Hadith from a taco Shabbat sobre la linea what are the woman walk after Shabbat? wacaco Haram. That's what he means by that go for it. So whoever guards himself against ambivalent matters, has gone to the utmost limit in seeking to be clear in his theme and his owner. Whoever falls into ambivalent matters will fall into the haram. Now, I want to just mention something important away for us because we're going to define something called L L. What is allowed when the prophesy Sam says to his deen and honor the word the word was transmitted translated as honor in English language. What does that exactly mean?

00:58:56--> 00:59:11

This is basically something that once once upon a time was one of the most important thing for people. And that's basically the reputation. The reputation meant a lot to people. Why is that? Because when it comes to into transaction with people,

00:59:12--> 00:59:30

what gives people safety to try to deal with you, the reputation, that your reputation is clear, you need to be trustworthy person, you're meant you're known to be someone I can, I can, you know, take your word for it. That's how it used to be back then. Today, they use the credit system.

00:59:31--> 00:59:59

The credit system is what defines the people around that local financial speaking, I can trust you if your credit score is at this level. If it's below that level, I cannot trust you. So your Madrona you basically you're kind of like there's some, you're staying that sense. So today, the only thing they care about is that reputation that we got back then the reputation of a person was the most important thing, because your testimony will be accepted or rejected based on that you're

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

Marriage proposal acceptable or rejected because of that your financial transaction with some people will be accepted or rejected because of that. So people they truly cared about keeping their reputation on honor to be clear. Otherwise, if it was stained by some people, they say, you know, this guy, he doesn't care.

01:00:19--> 01:00:43

He doesn't care if it's halal or haram. He's always putting himself in exposing himself into doubtful matters. So that's basically something it's like a negative thing against the individual. And as a result in the society, it will be kind of like ostracized, almost. And that's extremely dangerous. So for us, when we hear this worry this in the Hadith might not, it might not actually make sense to us. Because in our time, people stopped caring about that.

01:00:44--> 01:01:22

Like, people don't care what people say about them. And for them, you have to be authentic and genuine to yourself, even if it means to commit all the sins you can you can think and imagine, because I don't care. Because why that's who I am. That's, um, to to myself in that regard. But for the believers, of course, you know, that's part of our deen that you, you, you make sure that you do things in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam. And God your reputation, because it's always very important. When we say God, you're putting your reputation by keeping yourself clear from any any doubtful matters, or any haram that's going to be actually attributed to

01:01:22--> 01:01:51

you. So let's see what he says over here about this. He categorized people into groups with respect to ambiguous matters. But this is only with respect to those for whom they are ambivalent, ie the one who does not have knowledge of them. As for whoever knows about them, and follows that which his knowledge shows him about them. This is a third group whom he did not

01:01:52--> 01:02:08

mention, because of the obviousness of the judgment about them, since this group are the best of the three. So what he means by that he goes, Look, he's going to explain right now from these words of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, to groups,

01:02:09--> 01:02:11

some people who

01:02:13--> 01:02:45

they know the hokum they know the hokum of Allah subhanho wa taala. But they're doubtful, doubtful to it. So whether they do it, or they stay away from it. But those are absolute sure. Absolute Sure. And when they do something they know for sure, based on URL, he says, No, he's not going to mention them here. Because of these people are Allama colors, we're done with them. But the discussion is over somebody who's doubtful, and they say, even though I'm doubtful, I'm gonna still do it. Or I'm doubtful, but I'm gonna need to stay away from it to keep myself clear that these are two categories, a machine over here, go ahead.

01:02:49--> 01:02:50


01:02:51--> 01:03:35

okay, so the third group is the best after that one. Yes. Okay. As for those who do not know that judgment of Amma, on them, they are in two groups, first, those who guard against these ambiguous ambiguities because of their dubious nature. And these have gone to the utmost limit, in seeking to be clear in their deen and their honor. So here's the first category, they don't have the knowledge for it. But what they did, it just isn't what I want to be clear. So I'm not gonna try to find the Shabbat. So for example, when they hear about something to be done for, let's say, eating the meat of the people, or the book over here, a lot of opinions. Some of them either say it's okay to eat,

01:03:35--> 01:04:17

or this is absolutely haram. You can eat that. Okay, but these are respect to the rule of man. And these are two respected opinions. Both are valid, one of them must be correct. But which one? I'm not really sure. I'm a layman. You hear these people this was well, I'd have a strong argument. You hear this? There are strong arguments. So for them right now, should I eat or not? One takes a conservative opinion. And to do it, stay away from it. And that's the second category. But the first category he spoke about over here actually says that they will say, I will say we've completely from it. And no one says I will just do it, because it's not haram, the category, the conservative one

01:04:17--> 01:04:48

that says I'll stay away from it, call us, but those who are just say what's not clearly haram, so it's okay to do it. And again, these are two valid opinions. But if you develop knowledge at some point, if you develop knowledge about this doubtful matter, that you're now absolutely sure about this, then you no longer considered from one of either one of those categories. You have to follow that that URL, no matter what opinion that is. So if you for example, used to say it's okay to eat it.

01:04:49--> 01:04:59

And then at some point, you develop that knowledge, and you say, You know what, holla My heart is completely right now against that. I read the evidences. I heard the arguments. I truly believe it's a

01:05:00--> 01:05:04

It's haram. So you cannot say okay, it's okay for me to eat right now because it's still doubtful.

01:05:05--> 01:05:26

Because now your heart is at that knowledge at that level of knowledge. Are we clear on decision man? Okay, well that'd be at some point somebody change their opinion, Wallah. If again if the knowledge if your level of knowledge changes, and the argument is stronger on the other side for repairs and evidences and is switched again, then that's alright. But that's not going to be the next day.

01:05:27--> 01:05:40

It's not going to be every single day you're going to keep switching between differences of opinion. Otherwise, you're going to keep crashing flip flopping between different opinion. You better just stick to one opinion and that's it never changed again. Is that clear in your mind? Go ahead.

01:05:41--> 01:05:42

No, I'm good.

01:05:44--> 01:05:50

I just modified let's for the sake of time and Carlota let's move to page number 112 112.

01:05:52--> 01:05:56

The Hadith? Yes. His words some Allahu alayhi salam,

01:05:58--> 01:06:45

like the shepherd who, who shepherds his flock around forbidden pasture is he is almost certain to pasture his flock in it. Certainly, every king has his forbidden pasture which certainly Allah has forbidden passion, which is things he has forbidden here refers to hate and abuse Allah Salam, the last portion of the Hadith Cara Yara Halal Hema, you should go on your toffee, just like a shepherd who has his flock goes around the boundaries of a pasture of a king. These animals don't recognize boundaries, even the barbed wire, they recognize that if they can go through the world. So what do they do if you bring your angers if you bring your animals close to the boundaries, they're going to

01:06:45--> 01:07:11

cross it? If you bring your animal to the boundaries, they will cross it. He says, An everything has a hammer, everything has has a bound and sanctuary and the hammer of ALLAH SubhanA wa at the center of Allah azza wa jal what he has made forbidden, what he has made forbidden, which means stay away from it. And he says basically stay away from the Shewhart these doubtful matters are on the border of the Haram and the border of the halal.

01:07:12--> 01:08:00

So if you fall into the border in the in the Shabbat and adult tomatoes, there is a chance that you will fall into the haram. So as if he's referring basically saying, look, it's better to follow the path of whare and stay away from these models, until you have certainty of about them now keep going. This is a similitude which the Prophet son alone isn't I'm struck for the one who becomes involved in ambiguities that he is almost certain to become involved in things which are plainly forbidden in some narrations there is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said I will strike is similitude for that and then he mentioned the above Okay, and for the sake of time as well too I'm

01:08:00--> 01:08:44

gonna mention something quickly about the data the law to Nevada he mentioned and Imamura Rahimullah he quoted that actually called thermometer aqua and yet okay Hola Hola. Hola. Hola Abu heterotopia or misguided Allah wa took about the myRA and now Halal har*a Annie Hakuna haram and hijab and banal, banal haram. He mentioned many, many quotations. Matter of fact, in the book about scholars Sahaba and Roma. They say one of the signs of perfection of Taqwa is that you feel ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala by abandoning everything that is doubtful, even if it was a speck of dust, like no one can see that it's not a big deal. But he says it's still a big deal. We're here to talk about the AMA euro

01:08:44--> 01:09:21

and now halal, not just that not just the Dow tomorrow's even that which is considered halal. You abandon the you leave that so that you don't fall into the haram. And we mentioned that in one of the sessions before if you guys remember, you need to make sure that you keep between you and the Haram a buffer zone. So that whenever your naps desire something still desire something Hala, what does that mean? If you drink everything that is halal on Earth, you tried you tried every day, it's harder and at some point then have to start pursuing something beyond that. You've tried everything you had the experience of juice and smoothies and this and that and even actually, the halal beer,

01:09:22--> 01:09:46

you try that is not satisfying anymore. And the shaitaan is gonna put the person in a position where they stop pursuing something haram because let me try that because I've tried everything. So he says that you need to always leave some of the halal so that you don't fall into the haram. Again, not an obligation, but a recommendation. The last portion Inshallah, the last thing we want to talk about is

01:09:48--> 01:09:59

number 114. The last one of the Hadith, the Prophet SAW Islam, in his words, some 11 Islamic surely in the body, there is a lump of flesh, which when it is

01:10:00--> 01:10:24

Sound, the whole body is sound. And when it is corrupt, the whole body is corrupt. Truly, it is the heart. We cover this a lot actually in our Ramadan nights if you guys remember about the importance of the hearts, and here's the same of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam called Allah, our NFL just said, The Mandala look, the whole body, there's a piece of flesh in terms of sizes small, relatively speaking, the size of the heart, in comparison to the body is not that big.

01:10:33--> 01:10:33


01:10:35--> 01:11:12

so the size of the heart is really the size of your fist. And if you look and compare that to the ratio of the bodies panel, it's nothing, it's very small. However, the prophets Allah says that it's everything is about this piece of flesh, it does not have haute-savoie Just to do Kulu with the festival festival is just too cool. If this piece was right was good, everything's gonna be good. And ever. If it goes bad, everything is gonna go bad. Now, what does that exactly mean? We know that the function of the heart primary the function of the heart is what is to pump the blood into the flow of the body and spread the food, nutrition and oxygen and so on. Right?

01:11:13--> 01:11:27

Is there any other function for the heart besides that, that's where science right now is telling us there's actually there's a other functionality for the heart. And, and that's why Subhanallah when somebody receives bad news or difficult news, what happens when they get heart attack,

01:11:28--> 01:12:12

the immediate effects the heart, the functionality of the heart. So there's always a connection between the heart and the brain in that regard. So when the prophesy says if the heart goes bad, and is the intentions, that desires are now taken over, so everything that the body is going to respond to what the heart desires. And if your desire and good, your actions will be good. If he does or bad, the actions will also be bad. Let's see what he says after that click the shutdown, okay. There is an indication that the righteous the rightness of the slaves, limbs, movements, his avoidance of the things which are forbidden, and his guarding against the things which are ambiguous, are

01:12:12--> 01:12:58

according to the measure of the soundness of his heart. The moment of time, Rahim Allah, Allah, Allah says, the heart is the king. And the limbs are the soldiers. And the soldiers, they go by the orders of the king. And if the king orders good, the outcome is going to be good. And if the king orders bad, the outcomes are gonna go bad. So when you when you do something good, that is an indicator that your heart desires that and if you do something bad, that's an indicator that your heart desires that don't blame your hand. Don't blame your eyes, don't blame your ears, right? Blame your heart. But how is that why? Why would that be proud of we learned that from Ramadan statement

01:12:58--> 01:13:01

if you guys remember that, it's all about the passing thought.

01:13:03--> 01:13:13

The hot rod will always come, you will always have these passing thoughts. If you capture them, if you capture them, those passing thoughts right now becomes become ideas.

01:13:15--> 01:13:58

And when they become ideas, and you start process them more frequently, then they become become actually Azeema you start having an intention to do it. With that intention comes resolution. And when you have it in the heart has that said once it captures the heart, the heart is going to start taking first your limbs to take actions. Once again once it becomes Azeema and the heart like you have the serious intention or resolution to do something is going to translate into taking actions. So before before it becomes Azima or a strong intention and in the heart. You need to stop all these thoughts. You to stop all these thoughts otherwise, if you continue to let them go through, they're

01:13:58--> 01:14:52

going to completely spoil the heart for you and one of the largest spoilers or Apphia or our actions are spoiled. Last paragraph insha Allah col Francona talbo Salima. For this reason, it is said that the heart is the king of the limbs and organs. And in other words Oklahoma, and the other limbs and organs are its troops. Along with this they are troops which are obedient to it and motivated by obedience to it and to executing its commands, not opposing it in any of that. If the king is right, then the troops will be right acting acting. But if he's corrupt, his troops will be corrupt. Nothing of any use to Amma. But it sound hard, as he says exalted as he probably will demonstrate

01:14:52--> 01:14:59

them in the gym. Yo Mala young mum wala balloon in Manhattan Baja be condeming

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


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

the day
