Channel: Yasir Qadhi
In this amazing video, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi divulges details on the life and times of Abdullah Ibn Abbas RA – the Habr of the Ummah and Tarjuman Al Quran and the status of Ahl al Bayt for the Muslim Ummah.
Shaykh Yasir commences the talk by the analysing the term Ahl Al Bayt and what has been set as the most apt meaning of this term by the lexicons. We also gather information on the extreme love and care that the Prophet ﷺ had for his family.
Ahl Al Bayt has come to include the following:
- The wives of the Prophet ﷺ
- The children of the Prophet ﷺ
- Hassan and Hussain RA
- The descendants of the Prophet ﷺ
- Banu Hashim
Shaykh Yasir also goes on to divulge statements on the importance of the Ahl Al Bayt by quoting a Hadith narrated by at-Tirmidhi: “I am leaving among you that which, if you hold fast to it, you will never go astray after I am gone, and one of the two is greater than the other: the Book of Allah, which is a rope extended from heaven to earth, and my family, the people of my household (ahl bayti). These two will never be separated until they come to me at the Cistern, so watch how you deal with them after I am gone.”
We are also enlightened about the meanings of the words Nasl and Sharaf and how these are different from each other and how it plays a magnanimous role in the life of an individual. The difference between Ahl and Aal is next in the discussion and explicit information is shared to tell them apart.
It is also affirmed that Hassan and Hussain RA are the confirmed Nasl of the Prophet ﷺ although they are the progeny of his daughter, Fatima RA. this is elucidated with the help of a Hadith.
Please do listen intently have your innermost doubts and apprehensions answered.

Mr Heyman hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad in the head to Abdullah bin Ibis. Today actually we have to discuss two things. The first of them obviously is our bus if napton will put it himself, I realized it doesn't make sense to jump to Abdullah bin Ibis without at least going over briefly even though we did it throughout the zero destroy of Ibis. But secondly, I have been delaying this topic for a long time and now is the time to talk about it. And that is the status of the family of the Prophet from our theology from our understanding of Islam. Because Abdullah bin Abbas represents one of the most famous little baits he is of the lol bait. Now
the I ll bait is a very, very common term it is a Quranic term, it is a term in the Sunnah. It is a term that is well known in the religion of Islam, because primarily because it has become a point of dispute between the two main groups of Islam, the Sunni and the Shia, as we know, they differ immensely upon this term, LL bait and the meaning of Al bait and the importance of Al bait. And a person like Abdullah bin Abbas really represents if you like one of the main points of difference between the two strands because for us, he represents a little bit but for another strand, he is not really a little bait and therefore even the definition of a little bit, not just the importance and
the status is something that we differ over. So it is important therefore that we talk about not just an abusive partner, but before we even get there, the status of our little bait and who are the Hillel bait so before we begin, Abdullah ibn Abu Dhabi Allahu Tada. And of course Abdullah bin Ibis. He is the son of Ibis. abass, the uncle of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam. Abdullah bin Ibis is the most famous scholar of the Sahaba when it comes to Quran. Abdullah bin Ibis is called the habit of the oma the habit. And habit was a term that was used to describe the learned of other faith traditions like the rabbi or the priest. That was the term that was used. So Abdullah and Ibis was
called the habit of the oma means the scholar of the oma and he is also called the total Jumana Quran. The total Jumana Quran means the one who can translate the Quran by translate, we don't mean to a different language, we mean translate the meanings of the Quran to the masses. So even Ibis has two titles haberle oma and total joumana Quran so this is Abdullah Ibn Abbas we're gonna get to him before we get there. As I said, we need to take two quick stops, those quick stops will surely take up all of today. The first of those stops is Abdullah Ibn Abbas represents the Hillel bait, who are the lol bait. The term lol bait is from the Quran. It is explicit in the Quran. And Allah says in
Surah zap that in NEMA UD de la Julio Heba and Kumari Jessa Ll Beatty, we will call hero hero. This is sort of Azov verse 33 memorize this is one of the most important verses when it comes to a halal bait. Allah wants to purify you, Oh Allah Al bait from all impurities and to cleanse you a pure cleansing. Okay, so this term is something that is in the Quran lol bait the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. What does this mean? Does this mean that the family of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam is automatically a Holy Family? Is it automatically a sacred family? Well, one of the fundamental principles of this religion from which it differs from medieval Christianity
is one that has 00 tune with little or no human being is going to be affected by in terms of sin or good deeds or bad deeds, another human being. One of the fundamental principles of Islam is in a Croma commander law he at home, it doesn't matter what your lineage is. And by the way, this is sorted out in a Croma commando at Hong Kong. A lot of us we don't understand what it means we really don't understand what it means. The term a Croma, come and come. It doesn't just mean noble for the Arabs, for the pre Islamic Arabs carrum was defined by your lineage.
And so when Allah is saying in a Chroma
how we translates, as is
is the one who has the best lineage. That's really the understanding that will be gotten from the ayah The one who is the most noble blood, in economics, in the law here at home, so and why and that's why if you look at this ayah what's the context of the ayah? Yeah, you know Hanukkah Kwanzaa, Kwanzaa, what which is not come? What is it should Ruben wakaba ella Lita, our foo, in a coma, we made you nations and races and tribes, so that you can get to know one another. In that context, Allah says in economic calm and the law he is the one who is the most noble is not this tribe, or that tribe or this race or that race or this nationality or that nationality. And this is shown in
so many I attend a hadith that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam A man came, a Bedouin came and said, O Messenger of Allah,
who is a Chronos, who is the most accurate of the people.
So the Prophet system said, the one that is the most accurate is the one that has the most taqwa.
So the better one, or the man said, No, no, we're not asking about that. We want to know, lineage. So explicitly, he's like, getting to know now why because as you know, there was a hierarchy in pre Islam, there was a hierarchy, these new Muslim converts, they want to know how much of that hierarchy is valid.
So the process himself, are you asking them about Madden and Arab? Are you asking about the the the essentially the, the treasures or the any the the genealogy of the Arabs, I will tell you who is a Chronos
use of the nebby, the son of the NaVi the son of then it'll be the son of the Navy, go beat that. You want to talk about lineage, I'll tell you who's the most blessed lineage, use of the Navy, the son of the Navy, cuz he's the son of who? Jaco, the son of the Navy
is the son of a b. Ibrahim. So the Prophet system is saying you want to talk about blood lineage. I'll tell you the best blood lineage human being in all of human history.
And that his use of Allah His Salaam, not because of literally the type of blood, but because even then taqwa even then taqwa, the father was in a he's in a beat the fathers and grandfathers it'd be great grandfather is a Navy. And that's why our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Hadith in Sahih Muslim, so very beautiful Hadith, man Ba ba ba amaroo who Lem, you sir Who nessa boo man, Botha abbiamo Lem, you see who NASA boo, okay, beautiful, added simple to the point. Whoever is good deeds pulled him back. But abbiamo louis mo pulled him back, his NASA will not push him forward.
Simple to the point. Okay, if your deeds pulled you back, you didn't have enough deeds to stand on the scale. Your nest sub will be of no value whatsoever. And I'm use reheat NASA Woohoo. So all of these I attend ahaadeeth. And it's something well known. What is it? 1020 Hello, demonstrates one fact that it doesn't matter who your mother or father or your grandmother and grandfather are in the eyes of a law you're standing What?
By yourself? Correct. Now, how then? Do we understand the privilege given to the LLB Do you understand the question? Do you understand the question everybody? Once we've laid the clear cut principle in Islam, which is explicit in the Quran, mutawatir in the ad, well known to all of us since we were children and it is a valid point that Islam does not discriminate based on your ethnicity, your tribe your lineage. So then how can we say a certain family has a higher status? The answer to this is very simple, very simple. When we talk about shutoff when we talk about dignity, that is not the same as your status in the eyes of Allah subhana wa Tada.
It is possible that there is shut off in your dignity in your in your lineage, excuse me, there is dignity in your lineage. And you have nothing in the eyes of Allah because your deeds are nothing.
So you're shut off in the eyes of the people is a separate fact. If that shut off is combined with good deeds and good luck. There are hamdulillah neuron Allah knows even more benefit. If it doesn't have a man and a HELOC, then it is of no use on judgment day.
Is that clear? So what we say is that the privilege that is
given to the lol bait is given to those who have Eman and taqwa amongst them. If they have a man and taqwa, then the privilege of being a Hillel bait gives them an extra perk, that extra perk will not allow them to go to gender, if they did not deserve to go to jail. That extra perk does not make them righteous. But if they are righteous, then that is a perk that is a very beautiful perk, okay. And the example that can be given is something that you don't even need to be a Muslim to understand this in this country of America, in this country of America. Even though in this country, especially by and large lineages, and family tribes have kind of diminished. Still, there are families that are
well known and respected. Okay, if you are from the Kennedy clan,
then doors will open for you.
If you are from the Rockefeller clan, right, then you will be given positions in banks and corporations, just with that last name. And if you have some mediocre degree or whatnot, obviously, if you have no degree, you might not get it. But if you have any type of qualification, that last name is going to do what opened a lot of doors. Okay, this type of shut off we got from their perspective, right? Don't we understand as Muslims that our profit system has infinitely more than these other people infinitely more? Don't we understand. And we appreciate that this is what the shutoff or the dignity of the debate means. And therefore,
there's nothing and culturally speaking, unfortunately, we have some extremes in our community, we have extremes of racism. And the other extreme is to completely ignore whatsoever, any type of shut off of clans and communities. And that is also an extreme, which goes against human nature. Right? Both of these extremes are incorrect racism, when you think your clan is better than other clients, when you think your skin color, your nationality, your loan, your budget, anything is better. This is the essence of Cuba and racism and how I'm gonna whatnot. But the opposite side, there is an element of birds of a feather flock together, there is an element of you like to marry an
intermediary amongst your own people. As long as it doesn't lead to Cuba. Now you'd like to doesn't mean you have to
our Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, all of his daughters were married to the harsh In fact, not just the French, but in particular, generally, the new harsher and the benevolent look, but there's nothing wrong with that. This is not a matter of he thinks people are No, it's nothing like that. It's just a matter of, there's a matter, you want to do this, that's fine, not a problem. And in fact, in some other hip, it's a little bit difficult to say this, because people get the they don't understand this, in some mazahub they consider this to be a part and parcel of the nigga that then they got should be done based upon shout out Vanessa. And in fact, in particular, believe or not,
the Hanafi madhhab is the strictest in this regard. And they actually have rules when it comes to
finding somebody of a proper NASA and whatnot. And that's a controversial thing. Perhaps some of them went to extremes in this regard. And that's why it's so sensitive. But the fact of the matter is that at some level, at some level, lineage does play a human factor role. And if it doesn't lead to racism, then this is acceptable. It's how I mean, who do you interact with usually, who are your closest friends, people that are generally have a similar background as you and therefore, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did indeed specify that his family has a certain privilege or a certain rank, and we should understand that and
the opposite of this, and that is that the person who has lineage does not necessarily become righteous and pious is also very clear. Just because your grandfather is a prophet, doesn't mean you are a righteous person. There are many examples in history of the children and grandchildren or prophets not being righteous people of them as who know how to his Salah, know how to histogram is the number one example. Nobody can say that he was a bad father. He didn't have proper data. But in the end of the day, what can you do? The son goes astray, he goes straight, right? And, in fact, at one level, at one level, every one of us in this whole world is the descendant of two prophets. To
Adam and Noah, Adam and Noah, every single one of us is the descendant of two prophets. That includes down by the way, that includes down so for around and around, and Harmon and all of the evil people of the world. At some point back who was their mother or father, who it was some
Prophet right. In fact, one of the things that we don't think about Abuja hell.
Where's he from? What's his nossob? What's his lineage? Where does he go back to? His smile and Ibrahim Elisa? Right Bula hub? Where does his lineage go back to in fact, he is the uncle, right? The son of Abdulmutallab. So these examples clearly demonstrate that blood doesn't make you holy.
But when you are righteous, and you have nossob, then hamdulillah Ron Allen, and that's the middle path of Islam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam explicitly mentioned this in the Quran also mentioned this, as we said,
one verse in the Quran.
what? Certain Nisa what a law a levitas aluna b he will or ham, what type of law ladies are going to be well or ham. Fear a law in whose names you ask for what you want. Meaning somebody comes to and says I asked you by Allah helped me in my situation. So you use the name of Allah to convey how dire your situation is right? I asked you by Allah to give me a loan by Allah. I asked you when somebody asks you about Allah means it's a very big thing. Correct. Okay. So Allah says have Taqwa of Allah, in whose names you ask one another for your rights? And also what are ham and family? So what is the meaning of what are ham here? How else do you ask people for your rights? By the rights of family?
I am your brother, I am your cousin, I am your this right? We are family. So a lot of saying you are asking in the name of family for what you need. And Allah mentions with regards to the Prophet salallahu idea who was Solomon saurashtra verse 23, sudo sudo verse 23, Allah, Allah comala he urged Iran 11 malware data Phil orba.
Hola, esta la moda Organa. This ayah has two very interesting meanings. Both of them are totally different from one another.
Are they contradictory? No. Are they complimentary? Not quite. They're completely different. And our listener have primarily the first meaning and the other group primarily has a second meaning. But the second meaning is not necessarily wrong when it comes to the idea, but it's not the primary. What are the two meanings? How does the verse translate the first meaning? Which is most people assume that they say this, the Profit System is saying hold La La como la Jara? I'm not asking you for any money. Any other ilma what data Phil kotoba all that I'm asking you Okay, Rajesh, is that you love me like family?
11 my word Dr. Phil orba. What does it mean? The Profit System is saying, I'm asking you to love me like family who can tell me what this means? What does it mean? colas are a little more difficult, but I'm not asking you any money. I'm just asking you to love me like you love family.
Protect trust me Scylla. Tara him Don't harm me. Don't kill me. Don't assassinate me. Allow me to be who I am. I am your family, aren't I? I am Who? Who am I am the Porsche I am somebody you know. So I'm not asking you any money. What I am asking you is to treat me like family because I am your family. So a powerful idea that tells us the health of the family that even though our solar system is invoking the rights of his family. He's saying, Oh Quraysh all I want from you is you treat me like family. This is the predominant and asuna meaning someone had asuna interpreted the second way and the Shia all interpreted the second way. It's not wrong. But it doesn't seem to be the primary
meaning of the ayah How is the second interpretation? Hola, como la jolla? I'm not wanting any money from you. But I want you to love my family.
Look at how the whole meaning change now.
Are you following? I'm not wanting anything from you. But I want you to love my family. lol my word that I feel horrible. Now, why do you think the other group prefers this translation?
It supports their interpretations of the a little bit, right? A little more to the quarterback becomes I want you to love my family. Now the origin does not have anything explicit about loving the family or the process of them. Except this verse which is interpreted in this manner.
Clear there's no explicit
Verse. Now, the other group has 1001 verses that they read into, but honestly, nothing is nothing is even implicit. But this verse, yes, I asked you Alma de fille. orba? What does it mean Alma de fille. orba the main interpretation, I asked you to love me like family,
Mo a different quarterback, I am your colleague, and all kurush stop harming me, allow me to be who I am. That's all I asked for you. That's all I want from you. And that is the obvious interpretation. Why? Because pseudo Shula is an early MK consumer.
There is no early and ultimate at this stage married and having children. There is no Island bait that there is way early met consumer. And also the context doesn't make sense. Though the process is talking to the college. Why would he tell the courage to love my family? But it doesn't the context. He's telling them? Stop persecuting me. I am your family. I'm not asking any money from you. Treat me like you would treat any other person in this city. That's all the same. So old as of Monday, john in Lowell mobile data Phil Horvath. So this is the primary interpretation is the second interpretation incorrect. I say linguistically, it is plausible, linguistically, it is plausible.
However, it doesn't seem to be the primary meaning of this particular context. And Allah Subhana Allah knows best Now, as for the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam How do we know that they have a special status as we said, there's nothing explicit in the Koran in this regard. Explicit, you go to the other group, they will give you 1000 implicit verses that really, if they're just so implicit, you have to have imagination to read them and nothing is not Quran explicit in this regard with regards to the, the the descendants of the process, and we have explicit verses about the wives of the Prophet system, as we're going to come to so there's that, but not about the
descendants. As for the Hadith, there are so many a hadith about the blessings of the Al Bayt and the blessings of the Prophet system as necessarily himself of them is a hadith that I quoted the very first halaqaat I gave on the Syrah Mashallah, seven years ago, six years ago when we started the very first Allah I gave, we talked about the necessity of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there's a hadith in Sahih Muslim that says that Allah chose kwinana from all of the children of his smartphone, and a lot of chose Quraysh from the children of banana. And a lot of chose the Banu Hashim from the whorish and a lot chose me from the blue Hashem authentic hadith in
Sahih. Muslim, okay, a lot chose kina from the children of Israel. By children, we don't mean direct son we mean descendants, okay? We mean descendants. Okay, so Allah chose Canada from the descendants of his married kwinana is one of the ancestors of kurush between koresh and is married. There's somebody called Canada Wk Nana, is that large umbrella of many, many tribes of the Arabs of them is the kurush from the kwinana. A lot chose estafa estafa doesn't just mean choose Allah selected Allah preferred. So there is a there is a preference given to coresh who is coresh who is kurush? Fair, fair and some set hollub safavid fair is the most popular candidate, most likely candidate. So what
is his title fit is most likely candidate for what age then from fear. Allah chose or from Quran Allah chose by new Hashem and Hashem is who? How many above the process of them
so how is that 433 but no Hashem three, Mohammed bin Abdullah when I was in motala, when Hashem Okay, so, Banu Hashim, so from ki Nana, Allah chose Hashem, and how she was the one who began to read it that she thought it was safe, then from Hashem, Allah chose me. What is that show about the nessa of the Prophet system? The lineage What does it show?
The best of the best of the best of the best? So automatically, we are getting not all lineages are the same.
Not all lineages are the same we explain there's no contradiction at one level all lineages are the same when it comes to gender all lineages are the same doesn't matter at another level. Shut off does count in this world.
Another example where some scholars have given some scholars have given the example of money
money will not cause you to enter agenda. Does it gain you respect and VIP status in this world?
Yes or no? Yes. Yes. You can become president if you have enough money. Okay. What if you claim you have enough money huge amounts anyway, okay. So
money in and of itself does not cause you to energen but does it
Not being shut off in this world does not give you status, elite status VIP status, you can be in the top point 1% then call us It doesn't even matter your nationality anymore, right? Once you get to that level, even the nation state becomes irrelevant. So that shut off comms. Same goes for NASA. That's the point here. as well. There are many traditions that mentioned the extra love and concern that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had for his family. In fact, it had jetted water and hot bottled water in the farewell hotel. The profits on are one of the Federal hotels because actually there's multiple variables. One of them the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that I leave behind you the
Quran, hold on to it. Then he said, what was that que como la haffi elevated His Holiness as a Muslim. One of the last quote was he ever gave of his life solo Selim, I leave behind you the Quran. Now the other group says that the Prophet is set to leave behind you the Quran, and my family. But the wording that we have is I leave behind you the Koran. And I asked you to remember the rights of Allah when it comes to my family. That's two separate sentences. Or there's a comma in between. Okay, I leave behind you the Quran. What was that que como la FEA le Beatty, and they remind you about the rights of a law when it comes to my Hillel bait. So like any person, our Prophet system is
concerned about his wives about his theory about his grandparents, his remember the rights of Allah, take care of them when I'm gone. This is human nature. And he being who he is, his family becomes the most sacred and blended family. There's no question. There's no question about this. Any Imagine if a famous person a leader, politician, something happened to him, the community will take care of the family, won't they? Correct this human nature, a respected figure, right the founder of a country something one day when the person dies, the family becomes extra special. Okay, this human nature. Now our profit system, can we compare him to a dignitary he is what are pseudo losses on
him. So automatically, his family does take on a noble status that cannot be negated or denied. So with that, kuroko Luffy le Beatty. Also the famous Hadith, which I mentioned when we talked about earlier, the law one, and it is a hadith that is used by the other group all the time, but we have it in our sources. And we don't have any problem with it. Have to add here, by the way, I have to add here, there is a trend, and it is sad, but true, that many analysts sooner ignore the Hadith about a little bit.
They just overlook them. Why?
Because there are fanatics in our midst, that if you start mentioning the blessings of Allah elbaite, what happens? They call you, sympathizer for that group.
So as a reaction to hatred against them, there are many, many who just simply
once upon a time. And I have to say this, maybe 1700 years ago, there were people who were anti elevate, and they call themselves within Sunni. And they actually have a filter by name called the no Osip, or the nasima. This is a group that used to be the exact opposite of the Shia. Allah, Tisha, you're the opposite of them was not so nice. So nice. We're in the middle, there was a group opposite to the Shia. They were called the NA server. And the NA server actually had bad comments and despised the lol bait, we really don't have enough to buy anymore in our midst. Maybe there are some people here and there that are crazy in this regard. But as a group, they no longer exist. They
just kind of want what dwindled away. But especially during the time of the Obama years and earlier episodes, there was politics as well. And unfortunately, some of those qualify, encouraged not to be tendencies. Why? Who knows why?
Because their greatest threat was the Shia. The greatest threat was this year. Right? And the Shia for that time was also a political movement. It wasn't just a theological movement actually was more of a political movement than it was a theological movement. So there are some elements that did that. These days, I would say that group is gone completely. But unfortunately, one of the maybe remnants of that group one or one of the ruins of the effects of that group is that you rarely hear any praise of the alleged bait that comes from the mouths of Elizondo Jamal.
This is a mistake. We are the middle path, whatever the process that I'm didn't said we respect and follow so of the ahaadeeth that are in our textbooks, and we should have no problem mentioning them and explaining them is the famous Hadith called had the full kisa what is heavy metal kissa kissa. The Hadith of the cloak design is the cloak, a little kiss added to the cloak. This is a Muslim. And it's intermediate I made this lots of books of Hadith Sahih Muslim.
other group they use this hadith as the primary Hadith to define lol bait.
So this has caused many of us to ignore the Hadeeth. And and I remember myself as a teenager, when I first read this hadith I was what 1617 years old. It just shocked me like what how can we have this hadith in our tradition? Because we're never taught it? And you start to wonder where does this come from? Is the other group right? Are we covering up our textbook and it's a mistake we should mention it we shouldn't have these double standards had these will Kesa is an authentic hadith? And if we understand it correctly, no problem whatsoever if we ignore it, then when our youngsters come across the wrong interpretation, they will then grasp it what is the editor kisser? So headed to kiss up
when Allah revealed in the Quran about the
about the Masada of Nigeria on that call Nisa. And now what is Aquaman? Oh no, no come up with an alpha. So call your family your wives, our wives, our children, your children, and then invoke the curse of God on the one who's lying. And then a sada said no, we're not going to do that. So the Prophet system called a deity since I Muslim, he called who did he call Holly, Fatima, the Allahu anhu has sent an Hussain
and he became the fifth of them, right. And from this, we get the sheary symbol, the five and it's also the Sufi symbol, right. Sophie's issue as they are combined, in some ways is one of them. The five symbol and the sometimes it's represented as a hand. So as the Prophet system has it, Fatima hasn't Hussein. And then they have the symbol of the hand. Of course, that symbol comes from later Islam not from the Prophet system, nonetheless, and we don't find anything symbolic about the hand in this regard. Nonetheless, the idea that says the process of call them and he had a cloak, and he just envelope them so they're all sitting here is his family. It's his daughter, his cousin and son
in law and his two grandchildren. Right? So they're literally in front of him, he's wearing a cloak, and he and he puts the cloak around them and different versions of different things. But in one version, he says that
Oh Allah, these are my lol bait. And this isn't a Muslim. Oh Allah, I love them. So you love them. Okay. Okay, Oh Allah, these are my lol bait. Now.
The other group says, this hadith means these five are the only Ll bait.
Whereas we say
these five are of the a little bit, do you see the difference?
This is the main difference. And if we were just to say this and not hide it, not only do we say these five are of the elevate, but there's no question that these five are the essential a little bit, we can say they're the crux of it. But no problem, we can say they are really what defines the family because the process of did not have any sons. So who are his most obvious errors? Has senator sane, and their parents fault him and Allie, so they are essentially the core of our little baby. No questions, no problems we affirm, however, and this is the big however, are they the only a little bit No, for sure. No, that's where we differ. That's where the love comes. Not that we have any
issues with defining them to be a handle Bay, we have issues restricting our Ll bait on these five and only these five, so
who are the so by the way so this hadith also demonstrates the a little bit of a blessing of Allah, these are a little bit over LA I love them so you love them. So they are a little bait our beloved to Allah and His Messenger, whoever Allah loves, we love and whoever the messenger loves, so they sell them we love so there are blessings that come from being from a little bit and of course of the biggest blessings of the debate are Who can tell me of the biggest blessings of a little bit?
No, no, no. All a little bit not just specific amongst them of the biggest blessings of the being of the a little bit
Are you talking about the eye of the Quran? No, that that is from Ibrahim Aloma Mohammed
While Allah Mohammed go on commercial at Alabama, Alabama coming to me who says this?
Everyone, how often does everyone say it?
So in this given world at any given instance, how many 10s of millions of people are reciting Salah Ibrahimi non stop, correct.
Never does the Salah upon the process of ever stop ever from
the time of Mecca up until the Messiah, it's never going to stop. Think about how many people are saying Allahumma salli ala Mohammed weida
the Mohammed Salah Loris, just imagine the blessings of Allah and Pete. You have Billy, we're getting there. We're getting there. We're getting there patients patients. Just imagine how many people are sending the Salawat upon the debate, right? billions, not even billions, trillions by now, trillions of people are asking Allah to bless and send his Sadat upon a little bit that is enough of a shadow. That's enough of a blessing. You don't need any more blessings than this blessing, even though there are other blessings as well. So the question now becomes who are the
who are the adequate What do we have clearly said that Ali Fatima has entered his mid level and or above, but there are more women who are the elevate so the first thing we do, we open up the classical lexicons the Omaha to go to the classical sources of Arabic grammar, and Arabic, lexicography, and Arabic dictionaries, and have the most earliest and the most classic dictionary, written in the fourth century of the hegira is by a moment as funny arousing about us for honey, muffler data or undercutting by some estimations, this is in fact the first dictionary ever written in any language. Some people have said this, no person before, along with a spani compiled every
single word and wrote a dictionary about it in any language. And so he did this for the Quran. He did this for the Quran, and it is a famous book muffler that Quran, Kareem and you open up and you say who are the hell? So he says, The al of a person, or originally the term meant the people who live in the same physical house or vicinity, but then it was applied to the person's family. Okay, but then it was applied to the person's family. So by the way, the famous Arabic phrase, which is pre Islamic, and it is also post Islamic. Helen was that Helen? What does it mean? Helen was silent. What does it mean? Helen? Was that Helen means when you when somebody comes to your house, right and
it is no problem to say this island, your family.
Okay. And your family. We're going to treat you like you have found family over here. Right? As if we are your family was silent. Sal here means a vast place. Okay, you have plenty of space, and you have plenty of food. And you have all that you need easygoing, easy coming, learn what the hell and that's what it means. Okay. So I have here is basically you are our family. And in the Koran, the term is applied primarily for wife primarily for wife.
Musa alayhis. Salaam. What a massage for Masada, bf Li and SM Angelica turinabol when Moosa was traveling with his L, and at the time, he didn't have children, it was just him and his wife. When Moscow was traveling with his girl, he saw a fire in the distance. And he said to his stay here, I'm going to go and see if I can get a fire and bring it back. Farther, the Allium Khufu, so who is a hell over here? No. The wife in particular, the wife in particular, is primarily in the Koran wife. Now, of course, it's also included other than the wives, as well. When Abraham is visited by the angels, and the angels give the glad tidings to sada and they give the glad tidings that one woman
what is hap, I hope you're gonna get Yeah, it's happened. You're going to get Yahoo. And they told them about loot, they began to argue about the people of loot, and they said, Don't kill them or not let them stay. And so the angel said, That's not going to happen, they will be destroyed. And then they said, Solomon, and then they said, rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, who alikum lobate. Now when the angels are saying
This do Ibrahim and sada have any children? No Rahmatullah bycatch lol bait husband and wife, lol bait Okay, so the angels are calling the couple lol bait. So once again the wife is included in a little bit. And the most explicit in the Quran that is crystal clear for us is when it is used for our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam surah Allah has
two and a half pages dedicated to the wives of the Prophet SAW Selim Yan Isa and Libya Anissa and Avi Anissa and Debbie is back and for the whole, or wives of the Prophet or women of the Prophet, let's do NACA had Amina Nisa, you are not like any other women, or women of the prophets, when you speak a woman of the prophet in and then the the verses come that no man is allowed to marry you after the death of the Prophet. So all of these are explicit verses, the hijab verses come down, right? That the special hijab, that when you speak to any man have a special hijab, we talked about this, what is the meaning here for the wives of the process of the curtain, the double curtain, not
just a job on the head, but there is an actual curtain. So all of this is sort of a heads up. All of this is Yanni Sat Nav Yanni Sat Nav, and then in verse 33, in the context of Nissan, Nissan, Nissan is an OB, what does the law say, in UD to law who used Heba and Kumar register
400. For anybody who understands Arabic, you don't even need any other background, who is there a little bit, the whole surah the whole section is about who.
In fact, the surah begins
the first page and Wii U o la Ville minamino. First thing was, why'd you who are mahato
the prophet SAW Selim is closer to the believers than themselves. In other words, he cares about them more than they could care about themselves. That's the meaning here, he cares about them more than they could care about themselves and his wives or their mothers. This is in the sort of, then a few verses later, 30 verse 20, verses later, Allah mentions
a little bit. So it is crystal clear in the Quran. A halal bait is a reference to primarily who the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And therefore, by unanimous consensus of Alison and obviously the other group do not agree with this at all. The other group exclude the wives of the processor except for one, one wife is included which one for them, Khadija, for us, all of them because one suitor as I was revealed,
was there Khadija live at the time? No. Azov is a sixth hijiri surah fifth and sixth vigil has that was revealed fifth and sixth Asia, Khadija passed away two years before they don't want to be there. So when a lesson Yanis and I began, he sent me what don't say lol bait, Who is there? It is. All of the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So clearly the Why is there the process Some are included. So now we have wives that we have, of course, children is included, of course. And Father man has an interesting, okay, who else is included? Who else is included? Well, first question arises. And it's an interesting question. And perhaps some of you thought about this, but
maybe people are embarrassed to ask it, no problem. I will ask it on your behalf and then answer it.
How can Hassan and Hussein rhodiola who and whom be included in Al when their lineage is through the mother and not the father?
Because NASA in the shediac is through the Father.
NASA is through the father and children are ascribed to the Father. Right? Oh the only Abba him.
So why is it that has an ampersand all the Allahu and whom are ascribed to the lol bait? The response by your mentions? It's an interesting point here.
The most This is from
the Muslim oma has unanimously agreed that the children of Fatima are included in the nwsl of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
They're included. They're considered to be the descendants of the prophets of Allah while he was setting them. And as for the other daughters, other than Fatima, they didn't have children that remained Muslim. So they didn't have children after June so it kind of stopped off right. So really only faulty model the loved one had had children who then had children afterwards. Okay, from the others.
There was no
progeny coming out that remained you understand the other three daughters. And of course there are no sons. So from the other three older daughters, even though they had children, some of them, some of them Obama was there, and others were there, but they just died in childbirth. Or maybe maybe there's a bit of a gray area, perhaps one or two might also have given birth, but then after that no project it didn't go on. In other words, the rest of the nessa just withered away. So the only Nussle that remained and continued was essentially 100%. Right, there are no other grandchildren to the process of them, who is necessary remain. So what do you say that none of the other daughters
had any progeny that remained other than her. So, anyone who claims dissent from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam must be through Fatima through his daughter Fatima through Hasson or Hussein, that's clear, no other person has necessarily back to the Prophet system, and has said and Hussein are considered from the Nussle of the prophets of Salaam. Why? Because he said now that this hadith is in body, he lifted up hessen and he said,
What did you say?
What did he say right before this?
What is that? gotta help it. La Casa Derek, you go, you're close. What are you saying? extracted? I continue to say
the famous Hadith in Sahih Bukhari very beautiful howdy through the process of is giving the whole tuba and Hasson was wearing a red robe. And he was like a year and a half or something at the time. And he waddled in. And he rushed to the professor, someone remember, and he tripped and fell down, we can assume he would have cried that it doesn't mention that we can assume what is your child going to do? And so the Profit System stopped the whole double. He's came down, and he picked up hesson from them as he did. And he brought him back and he gave the holtville with hesson in his in his arms, if any help even our times were to do this and a lot protect that.
Because he's betraying his humanity, but hasn't done. Sorry, the process and picked up has an in his arm. And then he pointed to hessen and he gave a phrase then he continued to hold but what was the phrase in in Ebony had say, Good
enough in Ebony in Devaney not to inhibit Neha say it was a newsletter. By no benefit benefit, at the end of the month, a minimum of stimuli at a time will come. So I'm sorry, this son of mine is a leader.
And a time will come when he shall cause two warring factions of the Muslims to come together. Now, what did the Prophet system say, in Ebony has that say it?
From this, our scholars derived that
the grandchildren of the prophets are seldom, even though he said only for his son, but it's understood that when he called has an ebony, so the grandchildren of the process of them are ascribed to him, no problem. And even Hajin and others say that this is only for the Profit System and all of humanity.
Nobody else the grandchildren through the daughters are ascribed to him.
Even hedger ads, this is only for the immediate daughters their children, not a later doctor, their children.
Is that clear? giving you an example. Suppose
we meet one of the Sharif families of Mecca or of Jordan and the [???]ty families by and large. They are well known to be descendants of the processor. Okay, it's well known the documents there. They're not seven all of that is there.
The the ruler of Jordan and his family and there are still the clans and MK well known the Sharif clans of Morocco well known, they are their centers, their daughters, suppose a person from outside their clan marries one of their daughters. So this lady that he marries is a direct descendant of the profits of phenom through her son or her son.
The sheriff's they go through hessen
the sheriff's of MK I mean this family but the other ones Sorry, sorry. I'll have to check as it has in his in our mistake. I asked. I met one of my shoe who I met him and I asked him this. I have it in my notes. Um, let's forget that what is hustlers and I forgot
But, suppose this person was married this lady who is from the clan who is a direct descendant, but he is not from the Sharif clan.
Can he use this statement of a million that the grandchildren of the processor will ascribe to him and he goes, Oh, because now I have had children from this lady and this lady is a sharifah
you get the sharifah not order sharifah
inshallah all women are Sharif was in that regard over that is this lady is a sharifa Hmm. can then my children take the status? What is the response? No, no, because that special status only applies to the daughters of the prophets as their children Yes, they are ascribed to the process and not after that call us after that, that that that speciality is gone any other female descendant of the prophets of the law while you send them if they marry outside of that any you know, the the clan or whatever, they shall not be their children shall not be given the status of the descendants of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So, we have the wires of the process of them. We have Hassan and
Hussein and all of their direct children, male or female, right that are directly linked to them through the father's side. Okay. Why only has an Hussein and not the other grandchildren? What did we say? They did not they did not have any active or NASA. Okay? They didn't have anything that proceeded on so we have, we have Hassan and Hussein and all of their children. Who else is there more ahead? elbaite Yes, yes. How do we know this? Because our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
last lotta Hello sadakazu Mohammed in Hualalai, the Mohammed
famous Hadith in Bukhari and Muslim and others. sada zeca is not allowed for Mohammed Salim. And for the Al Mohammed Al Al Bayt al Mohammed. And he did not allow his uncles and cousins to take sakata money.
So the Al bait term therefore is broader than just even wives and
children and has ended Hussein and your undergraduate and afterwards after that. It also includes
coresh uncle's, this is where the actual outcomes, how far back do you want to go? And very briefly, there's actually four opinions we're not going to go into all four I'll just mention the famous ones, the Hanafi madhhab. So this is a fifth laugh now. Why is it a fifth of the love? Why is it discussed in the books of filk? Who can give a guest? Why would the books of fifth discuss who is elevate and who isn't the
distribution of Zakat? distribution of Zakat who is going to give Zakat who is going to collect Zakat takes a cut and can the LL bait work for the government and collecting Zakat because the Quran mentions the Ministry of Zakat can take Zakat money so what if the lol bait is working as a cleric or as a collector? Can he get so this is all the books are filled discuss it so the Hanafi madhhab is the strictest which is not surprising It is very strict in many issues. And the Hanafi madhhab says only the bundle Hashem only the bundle Harsha
nobody else so the bundle Hashem is essentially that when we say the process of in his articles basically.
Okay, that will be the strictest so even the strictest definition includes the immediate uncle's of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this is an Ibis and Abdullah Ibn Abbas right and i will polyp and what is obviously is passed to another Muslim but his children are who Jafar and Ali have never thought of and
octane and all of these these are of the lol bait and the other uncle's of the processor. I sell them. Of course, the other uncle's did not accept Islam, but some of their children and grandchildren accepted Islam. How about the descendants of Abu lahab
so their descendants would be a Ll byte. So this is one of those interesting theoretical issues. Theoretically, yes.
Theoretically, yes. Realistically. No, buddy. This is where
But the children who accepted Islam do because some of Abu lahab his grandchildren did accept Islam.
But what happened? Go ahead.
Haha. So, you know, I read an article.
You know, I subscribed to all of these magazines the Atlantic, The New Yorker, I read all of them. There was a very interesting article a year and a half ago about the descendants, the grandchildren of the Nazis of Germany pournelle living in America.
And the author, the article, the journalists track down a nephew of Hitler, who's alive somewhere in New Jersey.
Do you think his last name was Hitler?
He became Irish. Okay, what happened? And also gables and all of these, you know, the Nazi people, right? A lot of them they fled to, you know, their descendants, they now obviously, these people, from what I read from the article, they won't have one to have nothing to do with there. In fact, the person when he was contacted, refused to be interviewed until he was promised that his name and details are not going to be mentioned. One of them said, How did you find me?
So they know that my great uncle was Hitler, when the cutter and Fulani know this. But what are they? Are they telling their own grandchildren about it? No. So who is worse? Hitler? willowherb? Hmm. So you think I will not have his children and grandchildren are going to tell. So what happens hulless within 234 generations, nobody knows. So even the descendants stop knowing who their ancestor was. And so how long after that it's gone. Nobody knows after that. So theoretically speaking, the descendants of Abu lahab are going the Muslim descendants are going to be a little bit realistically, no person has ever claimed descent from a blue lab. And we hope they don't need to
discover themselves or whatnot. So this is the hanafy position. What is the honeybee position who was elevate brainwash him, the shaffir is and humble is make it broader.
And they essentially say that it's Bhanu Hashim, along with Hashem his brother muttalib muttalib, which is the uncle of Abdulmutallab, the uncle, Abdulmutallab was called out the motala because when we went to Medina and brought back the young child, right, he wanted people to not know that this was the son of his brother. So they called him Abdulmutallab.
Okay, so I've done with his uncle, his mortality goes back a generation. And why do they say that Abdulmutallab, sorry that mazarin argument that Buffett and his descendants are also a part of the the halal bait based on a hadith in Sahih Bukhari that the Prophet cism talked about one of the sub tribes of the methodic and it goes these are like us. So based on this Hadith, the the shaft theories and the humbleness they said, it's the bundle Hashem and the bonobo polyp. Now, one point to add here, and this doesn't, it doesn't detract from the sharper image at all. However, just an FYI, Imam Shafi himself was a descendant from the mapa lips. And that has nothing to do with this
filthy position. He is to above to bring this in, because there's a healthy thin body. Nonetheless, it just Janney FYI Mama shaffir is the only one of the 40 moms who has oroshi and he is Satoshi from the normal part is not from the Banu Hashim is not a Hashimi he is a Metallica mama Shafi is the only one of the four who is a quarter sheet. So, these are the main opinions about the family of the of the Prophet system. There is one more opinion which Ivanova mentions in his book about the founder of the prophecy, some of the sort of watered down the process of them
and that is that a halal bait means every single follower of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So when we say Allahumma salli, ala Muhammad, wa ala Ali Mohammed, one interpretation is all of us. Right? One interpret is all of us. And some have said that no, no, not all Muslims, the majority in the righteous of the Muslim, but essentially, it goes beyond this. However, no matter how much you might like it,
and it might appeal to us.
To be fair to the texts. That doesn't seem to be the real meaning.
Because a hell applies primarily to the family and the Quran and the Sunnah. And if we were to say it applies to everybody, why then did the process Some say, South Africa is not allowed for Mohammed and Ali Mohammed?
That means call us nobody will ever get soda from anybody follow us no Muslim will ever get soda. Right doesn't work that way. Okay, so no matter how much it is sympathetic to it in reality and and now by the way is there a difference between ahead and add, some scholars have said there is some have said there's not a law knows best and is simply used when the the the family or the object is worthy of extra dignity
or the opposite extra criticism. So al is simply a VIP of
Okay, so l and l are synonymous, but al takes on a little bit of a
prestigious meaning or it could be the opposite, ie extra essential because Allah says in the Quran, while your milk them at the zoo. Farah Luna shed the data and found is not worthy of respect. But he was a king or whatever. And he was the worst of all, so I'll fit around, not around. So Allah is used for everybody. Whereas al is used for a person of rank of distinction typically of respect, but it could be the opposite as well. So, to conclude,
a Hillel bait is a Quranic term. And it is a term that is Muto swatted in the Hadith. And it is something that both the Sunnah and the Shia agree upon that there's something called a Hillel bait, and the debate should be respected. Where does the disagreement occur? Number one definition of a little bit. What do we say is the definition? The wives, the immediate family, the grandchildren, and then has an Hussein's descendants because there are no other and then by no Hashem, or by no Harsha. But between those two, to be brutally honest, by no muttalib. I don't know of anybody who still claims descend from them, again, over generation things are forgotten. So we are now living 45
generations after the prophet SAW Selim, around 45 generations, right? Who is going to remember they're an asset from the bottom up
from the bandwidth is from the bandwidth that so it becomes a theoretical issue. In reality, the only people that still claim that sub are only to Hassan Hussein. Because the rest of them have weathered out the rest of them who did not preserve the legacy. Because this is human nature, how long are you going to preserve the legacy and even the descendants of Hassan and Hussein, the idle debate, it has now become myths and folklore and legend, as I joke, every second Muslim family says there are say it, right. And especially in our own home countries, half the descendants of the processor seems to have migrated boxes on my shelf. That's what I say, right? And Bangladesh,
Marshall, like, every second person is we are saying people Michelle, you know, so
who preserves these things, it's all gone becomes theoretical, just a few families, we can say they have authentic documents, they have shedra, we call them shedra the nuts of the tree. And generally speaking, you have the tree it's a big sign, because you have actual names that go back and you have preserved and documented evidence that it goes back to the processor them so the why is that the processor, the daughters of the processor them has an Hussein the children of Hazzard and Hussein and then Bono Hashem, and if you want to say but it will include them, but it becomes theoretical rather than practical. Then the other difference is between us and them. The other group is the rank
of the elevate. What do we do with elevate, we say that the only privilege that is given to the little bait is that we respect them a special respect and we love them a special love and we honor them a special honor That's it, nothing else.
Nothing else other than extra is wrong and respect. We do not give them any type of special
We do not consider that they are mousehole, which is a big difference. Because from the other group, their leader is Mausam and what is not so mean cannot make mistakes, infallible, no mistake can ever happen. And we say no. That is not the case. And from
They don't have to pray. So they have a they have a pass. They have a pass. No need to pray or something. Are you serious? That's what they believe that
he doesn't have to pray.
I mean, some people say this not all the
majority. Yeah. So
yeah, I mean, some people say this isn't a thing that if a person is from the same family, they don't have to do the good deeds as much because their blood will save them, their blood will save them. Okay. Well, we don't believe this. In fact, the Hadith is explicit. Whoever has actions push him back. His muscle is not going to push him forward. It's very explicit in this regard.
No, no. So the question is about Mr. MADI. No, ma'am. The The, the when he comes, the prophet system said that he's going to just be a regular human being he's not superhuman, he doesn't have cannot fly doesn't have wings. He's just a righteous person who will be a leader like has handled the loved one was a leader like people respect him and take him as a leader. So the mad he will be a unifying figure, the oma is going to splinter up and then Maddie will become as a unifying figure for the entire Muslim ummah. So to conclude, then, the as we said, The main difference between us and them his definition of a little bait, and then what are the hook for the other group, the lol bait become
the entire religion of Islam.
And if you listen to their talks, and their speeches and their books, that is all that Islam is the hook of lol bait and the writes about elevate and the dollar against the debate, the religion becomes centered around them. And for us, the lol bait or one aspect, it is not the main point of focus. The main focus is the worship of Allah, the main focus is following, you know, the ibadat and Mahabharata and whatnot. But one of the issues and I admitted, and I'm very frank about this, that, unfortunately, some of us have gone to the extreme of ignoring it. But yes, we must remember what our profitsystem said one of the last things he said, I remind you about the rights of my family, I
remind you about the rights of a lot over my family. So the family of the process of is the best family, and the most blessed family and the family that we as Muslims, anyone whom the process of loved we love, simple as that. And who does he love more than his family, so we love his family with his special love. And if we know a particular person, for sure we can verify is from the progeny of Hassan and Hussein for the low one, there's no problem that we are extra nice to them because of that method, there is no problem that we you know, show them extra respect and effort on the one when in a gathering, we began hospitality with them. For example, this is a part of our freedom.
It's a part of our al Qaeda, that we're going to respect the family of the prophets of the law who was sending them we invite them for you know, any type of event or give them extra gifts or whatever, just because they are the descendants of the process and there's nothing wrong with this. But we do not believe that they have supernatural powers that they can snap their fingers and something happens that just because they're either bait they will automatically enter gender that is also an extreme We are the button was on his shoulder with this we conclude and inshallah we'll continue next week from the debate one quick question we're running late but just yes
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
you came late
we mentioned this whole Hadith in a lot of detail
Yes, we mentioned we mentioned this howdy howdy tell kisa Yes.
If we are amongst the solid hain
it Don't say that you know if we are amongst the sun so that's the big if
I set out what Elena what la by the la sala hain, right?
No, but they get it simply by virtue of VI. So here's the point. Here's the point. Here's the point. You
Have this level of emotion and taqwa a person of the process has found the added debate also has this level, the mind and taqwa simply because he is of the debate, he gets a little bit of a, a perk in this dunya and maybe even in the area, maybe even in the area, but he has to have that level. If he doesn't have that level, and he's way down there, doesn't matter. Right? That's the point. Okay, final question we need to break for saliva.
So we just said we just said the children of Abu Talib or a little bit, so the sons of Ali, they will also be the general a little bit not of the nwsl of the Prophet system, though. You see, because the NASA the process will be only who has an Hussein, the children of Alli rhodiola, one from the other women, such as Mohammed Yunus hanafy right, and other sons that he had he had Mashallah 2020 children, all of those children. their descendants are considered to be a little bait in the broad sense, but not from the Nussle of the Profit System. Only has an Hussein's children So, one can even say within the lol bait, there is two ranks, you have the general Ll bait which is the
bedroom of Parliament the brainwashing. And this is those who sort of has held on for and then you have those who really have the muscle of the process and that's only has to say now, Realistically speaking like I said in the world today, hardly anybody claims elevate status, except if they are from Hanson and her saying why as I said, Why? Because the other other debate kind of sorta have forgotten their own lineage. Okay.
Yes, that's not from production, but Oh, Hashem, okay.
