This is the methodology of the seekers, the travelers to the Hereafter, or the first loan fee fit. This is a chapter on the pitfalls of seeking knowledge, whereby Anuradha met his suit. And the explanation means the exposure of Allah is to the corrupt scholars, which means scholars can also be corrupted, they're human beings. After all, why Allah

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

and the scholars have the accurate ministers who would lead you to the ACA. So what are the qualities of both parties and these two categories?

So they only look for the pleasure of this dunya what

00:01:22--> 00:02:05

was sold Edelman's Zilla team and Alia and they always look for status and fame among the people of the dunya waka drama Abu hurayrah the Allahu Allahu Allah Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Anoka Montana element May be he was Allah, he has a virgin, he said, Whoever seeks knowledge, the knowledge that is only supposed to be sought for the sake of Allah azza wa jal lay at the Alamo, inland, you see the V out of the minute dunya this person he seeks, or she seeks this knowledge, only to get out of the Minato dunya which means some of these marginal things of dunya some of the pleasure of this world lemenager the alpha genetti, Yeoman qiyamah, they will never take they will

00:02:05--> 00:02:44

never sense this the sense of agenda on a day of judgment. What does that mean? Yeah, when the Prophet sallallaahu them said that they will not even take the experience the center of agenda, would you say the center of agenda that means they're too far, and the only thing they get is the sense now, not even they're not going to be that close even. That means they're not going to be that close to agenda, to sense agenda to sense their sense of agenda. Not at all. It's very dangerous, and this will lie is very scary. Karloff, we had it in Africa, and was also reported the prophets of Allah Sam says mentale lemon Elma liuba, havilah llama, whoever seeks knowledge, just to pride

00:02:44--> 00:03:23

himself among the scholars, which means just to be you know, to believe that they can be among the scholars only to find access to scholars, so many people, they seek knowledge only to have access to big names, big scholars, you know, when you go to conferences, sometimes you have big shoe, big gorilla, big names. And this person is hope always to be among the crowd among the AMA. That's why they seek knowledge that it could be recognized that, you know, they deserve to be in that circle. Why are you mad to be his sofa? Some people, they only do that? You bet you bet. humanity's super hot. Sometimes it's only just to argue with the fool.

00:03:24--> 00:04:01

In some cases, people they do that with Darla just to argue and debate with Darla and to argue with the fool. Oh, you're sort of heavy he was, you know, silly. Or it could be only for a very selfish reason. And that's just to keep to keep the people come around them. You know, when you have people, they they, they would like to learn about their Deen. And they come and they ask their questions. Some people, they love this company, they love these kind of gatherings. They love to sit around and have all the people looking at them and just you know, just listen. It's very tempting you guys, you have no idea how tempting that is to panela. I mean, I'm sitting over here martial over 100 people

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

in front of me right now. And it's so scary.

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

I mean, you only see one face, I see 100 faces over here. And when you see that many people, the shaitaan is very clever. They start attempting to you about the status and the value of respect and fame and name that you get high. It's very, very scary online ocean. It's very dangerous for the people. So he says the professor Sam says anyone who does that for that for those reasons, just to argue or just to pride themselves among the olema Oh go and debate would that would the food is just to show off among the foolish are used refurbished would you unnecessary or just to have the people come around them for who have been now this person will be in Ghana. This person will be thrown into

00:04:45--> 00:04:52

Johanna will call about a set of a shed denouncing them at an angle mouth Alamin mafara you know,

00:04:53--> 00:05:00

the last moment in this life is perhaps the most valuable moment for you. It perhaps the most valuable

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

moment for you the last moment and when you come close to the end of life usually remember the most valuable thing for you. And that's when the alum realized basically that you know, they have wasted so much time in suit seeking knowledge but not then using it for other than for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's what he said, I showed the nasty man the damage and those who will be who will have the greatest regret. Those who will have the greatest regret, close to death, Alabama for a neglectful scholar, someone who had the knowledge and the ecosystems to go to waste. They never practice that knowledge. They never they never use it wisely. They never benefited from them

00:05:43--> 00:06:22

and the knowledge that they got column and now even for them it says wylam unelma. Who the analyzing an Akuma will allow marijuana Why? What we really request from the item, what we really request from the item, what request from the item is not that they have to be perfect in everything that they have to put themselves at the highest level in terms of perfection. We don't expect them to do that. He says the minimum we expect from them any Akuma will alarm anyone know why that would be observant for the commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala observe the commands of Allah azza wa jal and abstain from the prohibition that Allah subhana wa Taala made prohibited. That's what we expect from them,

00:06:22--> 00:07:05

at least to lead us in that way. Not that we consider them angels are not going to make mistakes, but at least we expect them to lead us into this, that they fulfill the commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala. kala, what is he an akuna de he then what an animal bahat it's not a requirement. It's not a requirement for the scholar to be sad, which means to be completely ascetic living the pleasures of this dunya altogether, what are more than animal bahat We don't expect the scholar to be more or the animal by heart needs to completely abandon all the permissible things in this dunya because in some cultures, in some cultures, Ireland is not Ireland, unless he lives a very, very

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

humble life.

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

So if you see a scholar driving, let's say, Lexus, or driving Mercedes people, they will say, well, they're getting the money from Masha. Allah, we saw that they're going to be leading us into into an ascetic life or humble life, when they see an alum who owns Mashallah nice house, and they come to their house, they have nice furniture, there was a martial law, Mashallah, where's this money coming from? They start immediately suspecting these things. Why? Because in our assumption, Adam should always be thinking of the ACA. And what is very interesting when it comes to the situation of the law scholars imaams, even in the West, because most of the salaries of the Imams come from private

00:07:47--> 00:08:26

donations of the Muslim community. So if the Imam eventually start showing some of the blessing that Allah has given him, people just are wondering panela Why are you paying him that much? And then when you pay him when you when you check with some communities that are paying the Imams extremely, extremely low, and the salaries, and you ask them, why are you guys paying huge amount that much only, to see what the Imam should lead us, you know, into a humble life, this is expected of them. I said, you know, you cannot force humbleness on the Imam. You can't force humbleness on the island. humbleness is not really practiced or exercised when you have no other option. humbleness is

00:08:26--> 00:08:33

exercised, when you give them the option to be rich, but then they give their money away for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:34--> 00:08:55

How many of them are worried about them? When they received the gifts of the hula and the O'Meara's, they were given hundreds of dollars maybe in our in our basically any dollar value will be millions of dollars, perhaps in gold dinars and Durham's and so on. They will receive a lot of money, but then they give it away. They give it away because they want to lead a very simple and humble life.

00:08:57--> 00:09:33

But when you force it on them, and they have no other option, and you say this is the way they should live. That's not fair. This is absolutely not fair. And that's why Mohammed Ali says over here, when it comes to what is expected of the island is to observe the commandments of Allah subhana wa Tada, the Helen and Helen, when he said he an akuna hidden he doesn't have to be an ascetic leading an ascetic life. He doesn't have to be that way. What are more than animal bahat and he is not expected to abandon all the permissible things if he wants to go and have recreation with the family. What's wrong with that? Driving a nice car what's wrong with that dress nicely? What is

00:09:33--> 00:10:00

wrong with that? This is you shouldn't expect them to abandon these things. Harley in who young Bella who, however, in the unknown in Brazil, who Anita Kala lemonade dunya mustapa, but it's expected that they sacrifice, they sacrifice this dunya as much as they can. Remember, they need to have it first. So they can sacrifice the dunya but if they're not, they have no other option.

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

And how are we going to learn from them that they're sacrificing this dunya for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala currently unknown. Lisa kulu justman Yakubu Tandon. Not everybody not every human body is able to carry that yet to that level for in an asset of our tune, because humans and people, they have different levels they come from they have different levels of forbearance and patience. Then he gave it two examples. He says Carla Pedroia and Mr. Fianna sorry for him Allahu Allah. So if you're under 30 was one of the great great aroma of the oma of the early generation of a syllable salado. Hey Mama lo Darla, can Hassan matam he used to eat very well. So when he eats, he eats very

00:10:44--> 00:11:26

well. What can I call and he used to say to him Allah, Allah in depth, but either lamb Yes, yes. La halfhill. Allah lanterman. He says, Listen, if you don't feed your ride, which means your animal, this case is talking about your camel your horse. If you don't feed your horse very well. It will not function properly. And he means by that if you don't feed yourself, your body very well. your nafs is not going to function very well. What can I tell him? I'm a mother. Now he's bringing a counterexample to this. What kind of Imam Muhammad Muhammad Rahim Allah Allah? Yes, man who should not Elijah Imran Ali said Imam Ahmed was an example of the opposite. He used to have so much

00:11:26--> 00:12:09

patience against you know, living in a luxurious life. He always lives a very difficult and very humble life. for him. Although Dallas is kind of just Birmingham, Alabama, and his level of patience was so great. Not so many people can afford that color. What about the thyroid, and people that have different different abilities. They're not all the same. So Pamela, reminds me also of an alum who had the opportunity under under and under chance to live both actually these examples. Lima Malik Rahim, Allah who died at the beginning of his life, and him and Malik at the beginning of his life, he led a very, very humble life. He was very poor, not by force, but by choice means whenever he

00:12:09--> 00:12:25

gets money he shouldn't spend for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. At some point, the money doesn't come as fast as he as he spends. So therefore he might fall behind. It was reported in his biography for him on low Donna, that he out of out of basically have any of,

00:12:26--> 00:12:39

of poverty to that extent, he had to sell the beams that support the roof of his house, you know, back then, when used to have these houses, they put these wooden beams and then eventually they put the,

00:12:40--> 00:13:00

the roof on top of that, he had to sell it, because he had no money. He had to sell this and give it away. So you could earn some money to feed his family, for him are allowed to be allowed on Walmart. And he was tried. He was tried, he was beaten. He was injured severely. Are they allowed that I know all about during the political

00:13:02--> 00:13:44

turmoil during the Omani dynasty. He was tried and then after that, the Khalifa, the Halifax Baptist as a matter of fact, the halifa then when he came to him, he apologized. He said I'm very sorry, I didn't order this. I didn't know about it. And he changed the governor of Medina who caused the injury to my medical Mr. Load era. And then from that day on, Al Sharif, I would always send in gifts to a mathematic mathematics lifestyle improved from being poor, to all of a sudden being rich. They said about him, Rahim Allah, Allah, He used to accept the gifts from the halifa himself, but not from anybody else. He said his amirul momineen I will accept his gifts, anyone else he would

00:13:44--> 00:14:22

reject that. But even what he gets from the halifa was so enough so good, Mashallah that they could see that on his lifestyle, his life, his his house was good. He had a lot of cushions he had, what you consider at that time was very large, luxurious, you know, furniture, relatively speaking, of course, when you compare it to even our time, it would be something different, but it was luxurious for them. And he used to dress nicely, or him or loudhailer. And he would eat, he would eat very well. As a matter of fact, it was reported that, you know, towards the end of his life during that time, he would he would almost actually eat meat every single day. I know now we say you know,

00:14:22--> 00:14:59

shouldn't have you should eat meat every day. It's not healthy. It's not good. It's not a sign of appreciation. You have to teach yourself to be more humble and simple. But in my Malik Rahim, Allah, Allah he had also that understanding that in order to be to remain strong to teach, and deliver the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala, I need to feed my body very well. So he was to us to do that. Rahmatullahi tonali. Again, when it comes to the roadmap, what do we expect from them is that the leaders in fulfilling the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala as much as possible, the more they are adherent to the example of a sort of La hasta la la sala

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

Model adherence to the commandment of Allah azza wa jal and the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, the more guided we feel they are and the more reliable they become in our eyes. And the less they do that, the less reliable they become in our eyes as well. God for him Allah tala woman's defatted, Allah Allah, as for the signs of Africa, the signs of the dilemma will lead us to the hereafter. And the Alamo and the dunya happier that they know how insignificant that dunya is one accurate sharifah. And the accurate the Hereafter is so novel, and it's so great. They know that. And that's why whatever they get from this dunya, they don't try to pile up the dunya so much.

00:15:47--> 00:15:48

They don't do that.

00:15:49--> 00:16:33

And they don't try to enjoy the donor to the maximum like the average person, they will enjoy the dunya to their level, to be comfortable, but not to the level that everything is it's it becomes all about the dunya it's all about earning money, making more doing this and doing that. That's not what the LM is all about. They know how insignificant that dunya is for them. When they lose it. They don't cry about it, they don't cry for it. Well, they know also that the Acura is much, much more important and much more significant. Carla Anoma kabara they consider the dunya and akhira like co wives and he will talk about co wives are not any good terms. So they fight against each other. They

00:16:33--> 00:17:11

it's it's you cannot please them both. That's what we mean by that. And therefore they know that they will always prefer the alpha, the hereafter wala to Holly for Allah hum of Adam aquadome. One of the signs of the of this dilemma that there, there's they're there these are this the statements are they're these, they don't contradict one another meaning. They always they though they always do what they preach. They're the first people to fulfill what they preach. They tell you something, the first people to do it, if they command you to do something, they will be the first to do that. And if they have the order, who to abstain from something will be also the first to avoid that. So

00:17:11--> 00:17:51

they're always ahead of you taking the lead from from the front, where khulumani loom illman Nashville Atlanta and they always inclined to learn that which will benefit them in the ACA and they will spend time in reading other things, but mostly things that will help you lead a life that will benefit you in the hereafter and the ACA, watch television Illuminati, Kelowna, Aloha, etoro Lima yada, yada munafo and they always avoid they avoid Easter Bunny Boonen loom busy avoid these, these sciences, that is not that beneficial for you in the camerea unshakeable theory and this is actually a very interesting story.

00:17:52--> 00:18:01

Maria unshockable Shri Rahim Allahu taala and no Corelli Hatton. Padma Assam is teacher. Alexia is a student.

00:18:03--> 00:18:23

He is known to be one of those leaders in humbleness and humility, and leading a very humble and simple life in the past. For Kala chef, Chef, the wealthy, the teacher told the student Caracas Captain amudha, you have been with me for some time. Me. We have been in my company for a lot of time. tamata talent. Tell me what did you learn?

00:18:24--> 00:19:07

I've seen you around for so long over here. What did you learn? He asked him, What did you exactly learn for color him on loudhailer? I learned from you eight things. And I want you to pay attention to these eight things. So I learned eight things from you. So basically, imagine you have the company one of the scholars 10 years 15 years or like Imam Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Allah Allah 17 years with his teacher, Madame Abu Sulayman, 17 years. And then when you ask him out of 100, for what did you learn from him, he will give you one statement. Because that statement for them is the summary of all this beautiful experience with Dan and they don't have to give you volumes. In our

00:19:07--> 00:19:42

time, in order to prove that you learn something you have to write, you know, an essay, or you have to write you know, so many papers and books and to just to prove your credentials. Back in those days, the people they would have the loan company have that LMR when you ask them, what did you learn, they give you just a summary of what they learned. And it would be very, very powerful summary. So here's now the summary of Hartmann awesome. And what he learned from his teacher called Island a things number one for me, Lula, for any number two evil Hulk, I looked around in this creation. I look at the people. That's basically from the essence of what he learned from his

00:19:42--> 00:19:59

teacher. He said, I learned from you to look at the people and see the creation around me for either kulu Shaka lahoma Abu, I came to the realization that everybody, every individual, every human being has something that they admire the most and they love the most

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

And if you just checked if I give you a few seconds for yourself to check who is the who or what is the most beloved to you, some of you might say, their children, their spouse, their parents, their job, their career, their money, their wealth, whatever, they have something that they admire the most, and they just cannot imagine themselves living without it. Some people they have that he said, for either kulu shocks Allahumma haboob areolas Everybody just have this beloved to them or this this love that they have in this world for either was a little cover, I realized afterwards that when they go to the grave for Oklahoma boo boo, that beloved one, or that love doesn't go with them

00:20:41--> 00:20:42

to the grave.

00:20:43--> 00:21:05

Whatever you love in this dunya whomever you love in this dunya would not go down with you to the grave, federal to my Ruby has an anti litter coup and I feel compromised. So I made my love to my house and not my good deeds. So I loved my deed which means I do my best to keep my deeds intact and not nullified. You know, because the good deeds can be nullified.

00:21:06--> 00:21:53

You'd be working for so many years and they do something that would you regret that would nullify all your good deeds. So he says I loved my goodness and I want to keep it because I know it's going to come down with me to the grave. That's the first one. Number two, color for me number two illa COVID Allah, Allah 100, Neff sanel, Allah said I looked into the statement of Allah subhanho wa Taala and sort of the NASDAQ 100, Neff, sanel HAUER And he forbade his his knifes, you forbid us from our knees following its whims and desires. But if he had to her feet of El Hawa, had staccato alata. Atilla so I made every I put my effort, every possible effort, fee def el Hawa to avoid these

00:21:53--> 00:22:34

desires and whims had the staccato Allah tala until minus became so comfortable in the worship of Allah subhana wa Donna means it will became so strong in the worship of Allah zildjian we mentioned that many times when different classes, one of the hardest things really is to remain steadfast. And it means since utilizada It's not easy. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala says and sort of sort of Lanka would and if Lam Meem hassy Vanessa utako yehudah Amanda warm lifting do people think that they're going to be left alone to say we believe and they're not going to be tried? One of the fraternal Medina Goblin we have done that for those who will be for you. We have tried them we have

00:22:34--> 00:22:51

tested them. We look at fraternal Medina Goblin, Allah Allah Allahu La Nina Sadako. What a lemon Academy. We have tried those who were before them, and a loss of power. This is saying that we're going to test you as one failure element Allah Allah, Allah shall know those who are truthful from those who are liars.

00:22:52--> 00:23:35

So when you do something along with this too, and you shall see if you're truthful or not. So he said, I've been struggling I've been trying to defend my enough's against his desires and whims until I put my nuts on the straight path until the straight path of obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala The third point? Well I'm Metallica, polyphor in the raw to Kunal lemon na who show you on low key Madonna in the way I follow. I found out that everybody who owns something that is valuable to them, what do they do with it? They try to preserve it in every every way that it's possible to them, keep it tied it protected guarded. So if you have something that's valuable, you got it with

00:23:35--> 00:24:02

every effort in every way that you can call up someone or too few Cody subhanho wa Taala man, the commune with my endologix back then I really I looked at the ayat of college pan out and sort of denial, man, the commune, but whatever you have whatever you have in your hand, em, which means we'll come to an end. Well, my en de la Heba but whatever is with Allah subhanho wa Taala it's everlasting.

00:24:03--> 00:24:10

Whatever you preserve people, they put you in a 401k plans for the future. They put, you know,

00:24:11--> 00:24:53

checking accounts, multiple savings accounts, retirement plans, all these things, they want to keep it to preserve it as much as they can. He says that I realized that everything that we keep or try to preserve will come to an end because our law says when my end the law he bought was what is what Allah subhana wa tada says it's everlasting. For cool Mr. Walker, I'm a law hakima every time I get something in my hand that is considered valuable to me. What just to relay I send it, I send it ahead of me, I send it to Allah subhana wa Tada. Which means what what is it used to do with that? Give it to charity. I send these valuable things to Allah subhanho wa Taala and charity, because I

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

want to, I want to preserve it with Allah azza wa jal, not on my hand, Leon Leon Valley, and those who have

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

stays with Allah subhanho wa Taala and that's exactly the meaning of hydroton abyssal alojado Salah. That's exactly the meaning of Hadith in NaVi salatu wa was ceremony, when I showed the love that

00:25:12--> 00:25:14

she received actually

00:25:15--> 00:25:55

this load of a goat and the goat was given to the profits or losses as a gift. So then the the meat was distributed all the meat was given away in charity, and they kept the shoulder to for the for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Ayesha she said that she knew how much the prophet SAW Allah said he loved the shoulder, the part busy that part of the of the meat. So she kept Dr. Rasulullah sallallahu ala when he came back the property asked him what did you guys do with that goat? Means Did you give it all in charity? They said they have a kulu ha Illa. cassava means we gave away everything except for the shoulder. He goes, No. You kept everything except for the shoulder.

00:25:57--> 00:26:35

They said that we gave everything away except for the shoulder and the profits or loss and he corrected that principle. He said no, you kept everything except for the shoulder. Because what you give in charity, that's what stays with for you. But whatever you consume, eventually it's gone. It's gone, and had eaten abuso de la silla when he says Casa de la Salam yaku Adam Malli Malli the son of Adam keeps complaining and saying, my money, my money. This is my money. It's all my money. Every time someone asks him, this is my money. Where'd you get that from? That's my money. So everything for them is their money. The prophets, Allah Sam says, Well, what is your money anyway,

00:26:35--> 00:26:44

other than what you what you eat, and discharge, what you put on and wears out. And then what you give in charity, instead with Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:26:45--> 00:27:25

So whatever you have, and eventually what you leave behind, it's gonna stay for those who you live after you die. The money is the one that you consume, even if you have millions of dollars, what's the point of having millions of dollars, if you only spend $100 $200 per day on sandwiches and food and so on? What's the point of that? That's exactly the money that you really need. It's the true money, the essence of your money, the rest of it is going to be for somebody else caught on Moravia. As for the fourth one, one more robbia for engineer at NASA, here's your own lol Molly will has it will shut off, should I so people always attribute themselves and ascribe themselves in terms of

00:27:25--> 00:27:28

status to three things money

00:27:29--> 00:28:15

Hands up, which means basically the line their family was shut off and their status in the society. So whether because of the money or because of their lineage, or because of their status, and the crowd, that's how people they cannot value themselves among the crowd. Color with a set B shade. And these things are nothing. Truly this there is nothing in there. At least it says for me for an adult to feel called Allahu taala but I looked in the eye a certain Hurrah or Allah Subhana Allah says in Chroma comb and the law of attraction that the most honorable among you the last panel with Allah are those who are most righteous. Clarify mill to fit taqwa, the akuna and the who Karima. So I put

00:28:15--> 00:28:21

my effort on becoming righteous. So I become among those who are noble with the last panel with Anna.

00:28:22--> 00:29:00

So you can be the novelist, you know, when they say the novels, and the society with the mean by that what the O'Mara the governor's the royalties and so on. That's what they mean by that, even if they were the cheapest in terms of love and manners. I mean, even when you read in history is a part of Europe, when they see that novelty and the novels back then who are they, if you check their life, they were thieves, thugs, adulterers, drunkards, and tyrants, and so on, and they call the novels. But he says that nobility is really in the righteousness of Allah to the righteousness and piety that you feel Allah subhana wa tada the most. Well, I'm a homicide. As for the fifth one, what

00:29:00--> 00:29:07

am I missing? For in nearly to NASA, you have to have sudden, said I saw people they envy each other so much.

00:29:08--> 00:29:24

They just have so much hate so much envy and competition for another. For those of you have colita Allah but I looked in the ayah what Allah Subhana Allah says and sort of the zipper of nanocluster Nabina Masha, Allah says that I divided their livelihood amongst themselves amongst them.

00:29:25--> 00:30:00

I was I'm the one who is dividing all this risk for them this provision for them, which means the rich becomes rich because I allowed this to happen. And the poor remain poor because I tested them with that. So he said when I realized this is all from Allah subhanho wa Taala kind of attractive has it. Because of that, I stopped envying other people, because it doesn't matter to me. This is coming from Allah subhanho wa Taala Why would you envy other people for the blessings that Allah has given them all the time and the tests that Allah has put you or somebody else in that I must satisfy the six Cardinal

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

Tomita Adam. I've seen people they, they kind of pose enmity and hostility for one another. They hate each other and they fight one another for another to follow the law hit Allah. So I looked into the ayah in Surah t sort of father called Allahu Allah in shaytaan Allah Kuma Du

00:30:19--> 00:31:04

Bois I do that shaytan is your real an open plain enemy, but do I do one you should take him as your enemy. The worship one is taking you as enemy you need to take him as an enemy call a photographer to other our home so I left the enmity of the people was that what the hardship what they have to share? Donna What do I do what and I made my enemy that return and only the Sherpa so when it comes to people regardless how bad they are to me, I'm not gonna you know, retaliate with the same with the semicolon and same as it's not working for me. I wouldn't do that. But I will keep that enmity for the shaitaan because he did that he actually he promised that he will keep you that I do. And

00:31:04--> 00:31:20

the last one and you listen in nutshell yutan Allah Kuma due to Allah, Allah Allah, they said hon Allah, I mean, Allah azza wa jal is making your life easier for you. He says, Listen, you don't have to create enemies outside this.

00:31:21--> 00:31:48

You don't have to, you know, make your affairs disperse, trying to defend yourself against this person. And that person, those people and those people, says your enemy is one unnecessary time. Just keep the enmity against the shaitaan and try to reconcile with everybody else. So Allah telling you listen, you can reconcile with everybody else. That's the last thing in this ayah you can reconcile and have peace with everybody else. But you can never have peace with the shaitaan.

00:31:50--> 00:32:23

So if you truly want to keep enmity with anyone, it should be the shift than anybody else. You could still have a peace and tranquility with them if you decide Of course, to do that. Number seven was via caller ID to whom using Luna and Pusan for your tolerable risk. So I've seen people they just humiliate themselves so much on the path of pursuing their provision and risk which Allah has written for them just to earn money. People they sometimes they do things very shameful.

00:32:24--> 00:33:07

They would put themselves in positions in situations very, very shameful. I mean, sometimes people they just go and because they know these people are rich. So they try to now you know, just hypocrisy live in hypocrisy. This last live live to a specific standard not because it's their standard, it just what they know it will please those people who from whom they expect gifts, status, raise money, whatever. He said, I've seen people they use eluna and perusahaan that he just put themselves you know, so down so much for the sake for the sake of seeking the provision that allows written for them for another to feel called to Allah. And I looked in the under ayah in sort

00:33:07--> 00:33:51

of the hood called Allahu taala woman and button fill in Allah her squat. He says every single dub, there is no double which means creature there is no creature on earth. Illa Allah Harris Haha, but the provision has already been guaranteed to them from our last panel that Allah is Allah guarantees the provision of every creature on this on this planet on this universe and this whole creation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. He said, when i when i when i realize that, first of all to be my Allahu la botallack to Mali, and therefore he says, so I got myself busy, I got myself busy maintaining his rights upon me,

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

the rights of Allah subhanho wa Taala upon me, which means to worship Him, what a rock to Marley and I left what I all what he owes me. No, and actually, a last part was no one and anything, but at least what we assume there are lots of hands on what the what he guarantees for us, we live that for him to provide us at his term subhanho wa Taala. So basically, he would say, I will just be relaxed, I know that my risk is coming. That doesn't mean by the way. One thing what just one more important things which is coming after the eighth point, that doesn't mean that Allah that the promoting of HIV negative in this dunya as they're telling you listen, you don't have to work. They sit at home

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

asked me and ask Allah subhana wa tada for provision will come no they don't say that. They want you to do your part as well. But they just as the point number eight is mentioned in here, Rahim Allah, Allah caught our eye to Muto culina Allah tala t masana Abraham I'm so happy I've done him for the Oracle to Allah tala and I saw the people. They put so much reliance on the on the businesses on their professions.

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

Their bodies martial law and their health. Karla fatawa culto Allah but I put my trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you need to you don't put your trust in the job that you have, and the paycheck that is coming at the end of the month. No, but you need to work for it. Because Allah azza wa jal, he made these the ASVAB that means to receive the provision that he has written for you, so pursue that, but reasonably, you put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. These are the eight points. These are the eight points that Hartmann awesome he learned from his chief, Mr. loudhailer Chicagoland Belfry and as you can see very, very powerful points online. Of the many years that you

00:35:42--> 00:36:21

spend with the AMA, if you ask yourself the question, what did I learn from the companionship of this scholar, or that item or that chair? You've been listening? You've been listening to this particular item or shave on the on the internet on YouTube, you're watching them, you know, live or recording and so on? What exactly are you learning? If someone asked you, what did you learn? From all these hours and years and weeks and months of companionship? What did you learn. And if you cannot really articulate what you learn, by summarizing few major points in your life, means you have learned nothing, you're not benefiting at all, from what you're learning. And that's why that's

00:36:21--> 00:36:25

why we don't have really Baraka. And so much of the time that we have today, in our hands, I

00:36:26--> 00:36:46

mean, if you compare the Illumina books that we have in the past, compared to today, we have access to the amount of the past would Yeah, and he would spend everything in there and there and the power to get is even 1% of that. And just united unites back, actually, under of brothers of Arizona,

00:36:47--> 00:37:12

his father, actually not as aware, the other one, basically, he's just actually he brought me one of these manuscripts, managed about 300 400 years old manuscript, handwritten, original. So it's really it's a no sort of fit, according to the Hanafi school. So when I looked at it will lie I was in in big shock, and asked Paula to the beauty of that manuscript.

00:37:13--> 00:37:26

And what struck me the most is the realization that how many books, how many books that alum or scholar who own this who was actually his great, great, one of the great grand fathers

00:37:28--> 00:37:34

of our brother here, I said, How many books do you expect your your great grandfather had in his position?

00:37:36--> 00:38:19

He said, I don't think it would be that many. Because back then the process of having a book requires what handwriting copying, the copy was awesome in terms of you know that the Arabic calligraphy and script was so beautiful and amazing. SubhanAllah. But then, those people who own these books 300 400 years ago, they were the literal amount. When you ask them, Do you give answers? Today, if you ask me a question, I'll say, give me a second, let me just check the you know, on Google. Why, because we have so so much access to great arola books, lectures, and so on. We became so lazy. You don't have to memorize. You don't have to read very often if you have easy access to

00:38:19--> 00:38:40

it. That kind of easy access technology taught us laziness, when it comes to seeking knowledge. There is no urgency. You know why? Because I can get it some other time. People today you tell them we have a class or lecture. They say is it broadcast live. And if it's been good, because it's broadcast live, I'll watch it in Sharla Tara from home.

00:38:41--> 00:39:01

So make the effort, the journey, the trip, the effort, the thought of making the sacrifice to come and sit down and listen, it's gone from the secret from the etiquette of CG anon. And on top of that, they know it's not just that it's live or not, they say is it going to be recorded, which means I'll watch that at my convenience in shallow that

00:39:03--> 00:39:06

we have so much access to him, but less Baraka

00:39:08--> 00:39:31

less Baraka because we're not benefiting from that so much. So therefore, if you learn if you take courses, classes, seminars, years of convention with elements of knowledge, just try individually by yourself to sit down and summarize what you learn from them. See if you can either put it in words, if you can articulate the benefit if you could not, you're in big trouble.

00:39:32--> 00:40:00

means all these you just come from nothing. You have to put in writing at least you are able to articulate what you learn. Color mo louder Island, woman's effectually male and one of these qualities, one of these qualities that LMR and your Kunal mukava, Dena Ancelotti, and this is might not apply to our time, he says, an akuna mukava Dena Ancelotti that they avoid visiting or going to the the political leaders, Governor's kings and presidents

00:40:00--> 00:40:27

And so on with hydrazine And mahalo to him, that they always try to stay away from the from the intermingling with them. And he mentioned he did have a Formula One or a statement of Cordova. Yakumo market fit and he says do be aware of these position of Fitton and trials, glioma, he says what are these places called a Babu? Mara, the gates of the Amara, the leaders mean political leaders, the gates of kings, and

00:40:28--> 00:40:53

these basically and elites. Why is that? Khaled Hello, hello Kumar. I mean, sometimes you enter the house or the place or the Palace of one of these people. And these such high positions, files do kobilka that I was at the oval cabinet, meaning you might lie just to please them. Or if they say something, even if it was a lie, you say, I believe it was a coup, Marisa be

00:40:54--> 00:41:34

khulumani Sophie and then you start praising them with qualities they don't even have. Why but just because you want to please them and make them happy. So this is very dangerous. Now anyone who puts himself or herself in a position like this today, it would apply to them. But we also required as students of knowledge and availa to advise these O'Meara we are responsible to give them the right advice. So that because if you make them righteous, they lead people in righteousness. These Amara, they need to be surrounded by Allah and righteous people. That's why I'm going to mirror him I'm allowed to Allah. He asked the question, who is better for the oma? Who is better for oma as

00:41:34--> 00:42:03

skillful as a skillful? Amir a skillful government or governor? Or a halifa? Who is not that any righteous? Or is it a righteous person who is not skillful and leadership? What do you guys think? Who is better for the oma to have a righteous person who doesn't have the skills of leadership? Or to have a strong leader who is not necessarily righteous? Who is better for them?

00:42:05--> 00:42:09

How many of you would say the strong leader who is not that righteous? Raise your hand?

00:42:10--> 00:42:13

How many of you would say no, it's actually the righteous person.

00:42:15--> 00:42:22

So those who say the righteous person, why do you say the righteous person? He's he has poor leadership skills, Why yes.

00:42:24--> 00:42:26

But what if he is busy and given his regada?

00:42:28--> 00:42:38

He's too busy doing to malarial fasting Mondays and Thursdays and he wants to give a speech, he always gives them you know more either instead of getting a political speech, right? So yes.

00:42:41--> 00:43:00

So the righteous can find someone who will do that for him right? But what if he doesn't know how to choose because they don't have the skills? He only got to get choose people because they only memorize the Quran because they Mashallah they look very nice and gentle and charitable. He doesn't have the intuition to choose the leaders around him.

00:43:01--> 00:43:09

How are those who say strong leaders, but isn't there is a chance that this strong leader who was not righteous might being intoxicated by the position

00:43:11--> 00:43:14

and in this case, they might be really the omatsu

00:43:16--> 00:43:20

Yeah, destruction. What do you guys think? So what's the solution for this?

00:43:22--> 00:43:29

The solution man, we've been Tamia Rahim Allah, Allah, he said, the best for the oma is to have a strong leader

00:43:30--> 00:43:32

and surround him with righteous people.

00:43:35--> 00:44:15

He says, Bring a strong leader and surround him with righteous people, meaning his counsel should be righteous counsel, that's the best for the oma. But if you have a strong leader, who's surrounded by pragmatics, people who always you know, look for their own benefits and so on, eventually, you're not going to benefit from that. So today we say, we need to choose the best for the oma surrounded by righteous people are the masters of knowledge you will guide them through the process in sha Allah who who data called him Allah, Allah. We finish on few minutes. Carla will call us at numerous Abraham Allah either. itumeleng alma yaksha Amara Roman, Nikolas, according to him, he says, if you

00:44:15--> 00:44:55

see in the island, that's their time. If you see the scar always goes to the palace of the Amiga or the house of the Amir misbehavior of that person. He's like he's like a thug or a thief. Now, why is that? Remember, keep things in historical context. They were talking about the time of any Romania, which was a very, very difficult political activity and turmoils in the oma the Civil War of the Muslim Omar, the fight for the leadership and so on. So that's why it was very dangerous circumstance. And the Amara has been Romania. They wanted to have alliance with the religious leadership. So they always wanted to have even marriages with their with the daughters of the

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

dilemma like Saturn will save himself, even the halifa. He wanted his son to meditate.

00:45:00--> 00:45:23

of Saddam Hussein. What did he do? He immediately went to one of his students. And he immediately he gave, he gave actually his daughter to his students in marriage so that the halifa will not take it afterwards. Now that's a completely different time. And our time is a little bit different. We need to surround them with the righteous people so they could lead The Omen shallow data for the higher court or him Allah, Allah.

00:45:25--> 00:45:47

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah sallallahu ala federa, one of the signs of a righteous Island is that they don't rush into given the federal they don't right that's the island. Imagine the island What about someone who's not an island? Like today? I have on Facebook sometimes ask people you know, for questions, or a busy ask them, you know, to give you opinions, many of them they say, Well, I don't have much knowledge, really, but here's my opinion.

00:45:48--> 00:46:28

And I'm alive. I'm kind of when I read that I just go Suhana Look at this, the contradiction here. And you say you don't have the knowledge. But here's my opinion. I understand if the case I'm asking for an opinion, I want that. But if I'm asking for a federal or official opinion, don't even try. If you don't have the qualification, don't even try the other matter. Don't rush into the federal we're kind of set up for him Allah to Allah yet. Una melfort to a hot oven. The setup of sila Rahim Allah the righteous in predecessors, they used to push the photo to somebody else meaning when someone comes in comes with a question they say Why don't you ask? Chef Allah you know chef might be

00:46:28--> 00:46:33

available ask him so they keep pushing the person from one island to the other until it goes back to the first person.

00:46:34--> 00:47:12

It goes all the way around, because everybody tries to avoid giving the answer of course taken given the answers responsibility. If you know the answer you should give it but if you don't, you're not sure about it. In this case, you have to leave it and give it to somebody else afterwards. What can I do? Colorado vileda Rahim Allah Allah, a drug to federal method matter where Sheila minutes hi Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.

Someone else was volunteer to say okay, I know the Hadith. I'll tell you

00:47:12--> 00:47:54

Because they don't want to take the responsibility of misquoting the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in our time, unfortunately, it's becoming the opposite people they rush and even they compete to cert to show that they know more than the other and that's very dangerous when it comes to given federal and he said Rahim Allah who tada some staccato omro after that Allah Maru.

You have the moon Allah job fimasartan loaded earlier Marvin hapa radi Allahu taala Anwar de la Gemma bedroom this a charlatan said we live in a time

It's not always about just know how to teach how to make will do or how to give solid to solid will lie what is more important is to teach people how to fix their hearts and how to maintain a righteous life in secrecy more than in public.

Mashallah.

You guys know, my philosophy comes when there are no no questions, that means one of two things. What are the benefits? 100%

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

Na?

00:52:03--> 00:52:37

Na, we said that the questions we say that, you know, it's not appropriate for you to talk if you don't have the proper knowledge yet. But what if you were in a gathering, which is unfortunately it's the case right now in most Muslim gatherings. So Harlem Muslims, when they get together, they kind of like to discuss these huge matters, just like you mentioned, Senator Kamala, if Robocop was there, he would ask for the people who better to help him out finding an answer for this. But we find our average Muslims Mashallah sitting together, arguing, discussing and just giving opinions and their perspective, I read this here, and they give all their opinions on the subject. It's very

00:52:37--> 00:53:21

dangerous. So if you hear two people, or two people are just talking nonsense about something that is very serious. And you have heard from another alum, the right answer to this masala? Are you allowed to inject and tell them? If you guys don't mind? I have I've heard chef run, he says 123? Because I as 123 and so on, are you allowed to engage yourself in that discussion? Well, yeah, but remember, if you're going to start becoming part of that debate, you just simply give you the item that you know, and stay out of it. If they say no, what do you mean by this? I don't know. But that's what he said. Tell me what, how how do you understand this? What I'm telling you, that's my

00:53:21--> 00:53:39

limit? I really don't know. But this is what he said. And I'm just conveying to you what I learned from him. And most of the elements and some of the elements panela. They said, What have you learned as well as cost? What are we anyway, other than being any carriers of the knowledge? That's who we are.

00:53:40--> 00:53:49

We only take the knowledge from those who before and then we transfer that to the next generation. We only carriers of knowledge online, not any question.
