Mothers of the Believers – Episode 01 – Definition, Blessings and Rights of Ahl-al-Bayt

Episode Notes

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi  delves into the family, blessings, and rights of the most blessed family to ever live on the earth – The Ahlul Bayt or the Family of the Prophet ﷺ.

And abide in your houses and do not display yourselves as [was] the display of the former times of ignorance. And establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity [of sin], O people of the [Prophet’s] household, and to purify you with [extensive] purification. 

[Surah Ahzab, Verse 33]

What does Ahlulbayt mean? Sunni Islam agrees that Banu Hashim and the wives of the Prophet ﷺ are included in the Ahlul Bayt. Sadaqah And Zakah is haram upon the Ahlul Bayt.

The wives of the Prophet ﷺ have many blessings ascribed to them as is evident in the numerous verses cited from Surah Ahzab. They have an extra status which is clear when we say that they are the wives of the Prophet ﷺ and also are devoted to Islam diligently.

Hadith al Thaqalayn is also mentioned highlighting the status of the Ahlulbayt which explicitly mentions that the two precious things left behind by the Prophet ﷺ are the Qur’an and the Ahlul-Bayt. We make Dua constantly for their ranks to be raised in every Salah.

The Sahaba had immense love for the Ahlul Bayt as is proven by various narrations of the Hadith.

The status of Hassan and Hussein RA is elaborated upon and numerous Hadith are shared to illustrate this very fact.

Abu Saeed RA narrates that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “Al-Hasan and Al-Husain are the leaders of the youth of Paradise.”

Ibn Umar RA said that the Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “Indeed Al-Hasan and Al-Hussain – they are my two fragrant flowers in the world.”

00:00:06--> 00:00:11

forcing him was Joe

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

de la salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was

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

about.

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

So I welcome you to our halaqa today, this is gonna be the first of our halaqa for this year 2019.

00:00:29--> 00:00:41

As you all realize it will also be the last series I'll be doing three, four months or left in shaldon the normal bond will come. And then we will basically be concluding over here. So

00:00:42--> 00:01:10

I will be doing a shout out to other the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam as the last series on Wednesday, the Mahajan more meaning and as a precursor to that series, today we're going to be talking about the debate and who exactly are they and their blessings and their distinction in the ranks and a little bit just a little bit of the differences between Sorry, my glasses are all wet between us and other groups when it comes to the debate and how do we view

00:01:11--> 00:02:00

our rank with bait versus the other groups rank of a little bit. So firstly, what is a little bit of course I ll bait composed of two words and bait and a hill is the Arabic word for family but it means more than just family. I help comes from the root even the word Allah Oulu also has a little bait and lol bait. Sometimes we say lol bait and if with mud on it and lamb. And sometimes we say lol bait and if Hamza lamb, and L and L are really synonymous, some scholars make a very slight distinction between the two. But really for practical purposes, they are the same, and the ad and are those whom a person goes back to so in Arabic we say Allah to return. So

00:02:02--> 00:02:36

is the group that a person returns to all the time and who do you go back to all the time, your family. So that's why family is called al because the person returns to the family. So al and Al are those whom you return to all the time so you call your family your supporters even are called ahead and bait is of course house. So lol bait or lol bait or the household of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the household the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And the

00:02:38--> 00:03:09

definition of the parallel bait of the prophets of the cinema is actually a lot of controversy, believe it or not within Sunni Islam within Shia Islam, it's actually not that much of a controversy is more defined within Sunni Islam there are a number of opinions, but frankly, these opinions are technical for our perspectives, it doesn't matter that much white Well, a little bit of precursor here if you remember that the genealogy the process of them. Mohammed even helped me out guys, Abdullah Ibn Abdul muttalib even

00:03:11--> 00:03:12

Hashem even

00:03:14--> 00:03:20

stop everybody stop here. Come on. Mohammed diviner, Abdullah Ibn Abdul muttalib ebonheart Hashem even

00:03:22--> 00:04:03

have them enough. Okay, so we have to go to abdomen off now, because we want to define a little bait. The controversy is at the advanced genealogy. Everybody agrees that either and Fatima does something everybody agrees that has entered her center debate. The Love comes the second cousins of the process. For example, this is where the love comes. So just to be very quick here. So pretty much everybody says the bundle Hashem are a little bit. This is pretty much well known in Sunni Islam, the bundle Hashem. So the new Hashem. This is the great grandfather of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Hashem had two sons, Abdulmutallab and his brother acid. And acid had a few

00:04:03--> 00:04:10

sons but none of them really had sons after So essentially, when you say Banu Hashim, you really mean

00:04:12--> 00:04:52

because Hashem other children didn't really proceed onwards? Is that clear? So by no Hashem is synonymous realistically with bundler. I've done both but it because I've dermatitis brother didn't really have any grandchildren, children. He had sons, but they didn't have sons. So basically, it's gone. So I've done well today. We all know the grandfather, the process of them, and so his descendants that were Muslims. That's two of his sons were Muslims, and many of his grandsons and their children were Muslim, right? So this is a majority position that okay, the Banu Hashim are the LL beta the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam along with of course his wives were going to come to

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

this technicality. Sunni Islam agrees that the wives are a little bit non Sunni Islam.

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

cludes them this is the key difference between one of the key differences between Sunni and non Sunni Sunni Islam says the Banu Hashim and the wives are lol bater ahlulbayt. Now this is the majority position the ham buddies and whether they say this. Some of them at the Hub's they say that not just Hashem and brainwash him, but Hashem his brother Elmo Talib, and the children of Animoto live, which basically mean the second cousins of the Prophet system that were Muslim. So, the technical difference, the fact of the matter is, I am not aware of any descendants who claim lineage from Berlin and claim to be elevate, this is a technical theoretical, if data are there for sure. In

00:05:44--> 00:06:01

parts of the world, there must be people who will trace their lineage back to Alma. Okay, but who are they? Who knows? Nobody tracks their genealogy to that level, the only people who cared that much to track their genealogy are or whom

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

the

00:06:07--> 00:06:10

who tracks their genealogy from Islam that much.

00:06:15--> 00:06:57

The Ll bait themselves, the descendants of the process of themselves, right? This is the only group that really cares about their genealogy and they're tracking down and they have still sheduled us back to the LL bait themselves. So the children of Hassan and Hussein, okay, these are the only people in our times it's been 14 and a half centuries is now you know, 1440 plus 100. Now 1440 years from the hijra, who's going to track their genealogy that back the other cousins, second cousins, third cousins, slowly but surely, just trickle down in is gone. Nobody knows who they are, but they must be there. But it's a theoretical difference. So the data really is whether it's only been to

00:06:57--> 00:07:40

Hashem, or it's also been to Hashem and Banu Elmo. polymetallic is Hashem his brother. Now again, remember Abdulmutallab why was called Abdulmutallab who can remind me the story goes back to the second class of theater guys, come on, now that I'm leaving, you should know the Sierra inside out right? The second halaqa I gave on the Sierra so many years ago. Why is Abdulmutallab called Abdulmutallab come on? It's a famous story. His uncle what was his uncle's name? Alma toddy oil muttalib his uncle his gesture almost kidnapped his nephew from Medina from yesterday. Remember, Talib kidnapped because the mother didn't want to give him away. And nobody went to yesterday found

00:07:40--> 00:08:29

his nephew brought him back. When they brought him back. The people said oh, this must be a slave. You got Abdulmutallab? So Abdulmutallab gesture his nephews uncle is muttalib. The Shafi position is been humbled, and Banu Hashim are the elevators are clear, simple as that. And the Hanafi say the bundle Hashem so it's a technical issue doesn't really matter that much to us. Very, very abstract, it doesn't really have any tangible benefit in our times. But the key point, we certainly Islam agrees that the wives are also a little bit now, we say the art of a family is to you have the bitter barrier and the ol bill of soil, the soil that is linked and the soil that is by blood, the

00:08:29--> 00:09:16

ad that is linked his marriage and the soil by blood, his descendants. And this is something that the Quran is very explicit about. So for example, when the angels visited Ibrahim, the angels visited Ibrahim the Koran says rahmatullahi wa barakatuh Aleikum lol bait. This is a Hillel bait and the and the reference is sada and Ibrahim. So Sarah and Ebrahim a law calls them lol baits, the wife is a hell that's what I'm trying to get. get here by text of the Quran. The wife is a part of the the angels are speaking and they're speaking to whom Ibrahim and sada they're telling them you're gonna have you're gonna have his house after his house. You're gonna have your coop, you know, and

00:09:16--> 00:09:35

rahmatullah wa barakato are they come? A little bait? Very clear, a little bit. Also, Moosa and his wife, fella Masada big he an SME janitorial. He was traveling with his L and they saw a fire in the distance. Who is the head here?

00:09:37--> 00:09:47

The wife, what am I trying to get at? The wives by the text of the Oran come under? Hell. Why is this so important for us because the other group

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

excludes them. Right, the other group excludes them. So for us, the a hell of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. They include his blood relatives. Of course they do, but they must include

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

His spouse's as well. And this is something that is explicit in the Koran. And in the soon as we're going to come to now, the LL Bay through the lol bait. They are the relatives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his wives upon whom charity is how long. This is the technical definition. They are the relatives and wives upon whom sadhaka and Zakat is how long it is not allowed for them to take sada and Zika. And this is something that is well known. And the reason why the uncles and nephews of the Prophet is not the nephews, the cousins and their children are included, is because of an exquisite Hadith in Sahih Muslim where a hadith sorry, Abdulmutallab,

00:10:45--> 00:11:30

neurobiol, Ibn Al Hadith, even Abdul muttalib so this is the grand the great grandson of Abdul polyps, the great grandson of Abdul Paddy, so in other words, the prophet SAW sedums cousin's grandson. He went to the profits of the Law Center along with a father in a bus and they were poor. And they said, O Messenger of Allah, can you give us sadaqa so we can get married when they get married, we want sada from the baytril man, so the Prophet systems distant relative, but of the descendants of the muttalib comes, and his cousin first cousin father also comes and the both of them were poor, and they said Yasuda law can you give us sadaqa? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:11:30--> 00:11:52

sallam said, Do you not know that South Africa is not allowed for the art of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, this is for the South Africa is considered to be impure for us. So who is us here? Abdulmutallab, his descendants, not just his immediate fault him and has an in her same

00:11:53--> 00:12:19

sort of bundle Hashem basically because we said Hashem is only really optimal budget. So he ascribed his second cousin to his ad, and this is the bundle Hashem and therefore it is very clear, and that's the mainstream position that all of the descendants of the Banu Hashim, they are from the art of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and therefore this includes an Ibis and the descendants of Ibis, and this includes

00:12:21--> 00:12:40

the Al polyp. I thought it was children. So our pain, and Jafar and Isley and all of their descendants are a little bait. Believe it or not, it also includes a bola hub. descendant is not a bola hub, because you have to be Muslim, but a bola hubs descendants did Abu lahab his descendants embraced Islam

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

who embraced Islam.

00:12:46--> 00:12:48

Did Abu lahab descendents embrace Islam?

00:12:50--> 00:12:52

His Son, do you remember his name?

00:12:56--> 00:13:42

You are correct, his son embraced Islam. His son embraced Islam after the conquest of Makkah. And his name was Raja and the roads but even a Bella hub therefore is a Sahabi. And his descendants lived on even hasm writing in the fifth century from Missouri from the understory. Even hasm says he still has progeny in Makkah, Aruba, he still has progeny in Makkah. So 500 years later, or 400 years later, they still knew the descendants of Abu lahab. But over the centuries, his memory faded away, because who is going to take pride when your ancestors Abu lahab who is going to take pride in this? So who goes back to a Boolean browser? Oh, my ancestors of will I was gonna say that. But

00:13:42--> 00:14:27

technically a Bula hubbs descendants are also the LLB so all of the basically Banu Hashim, they're Muslim amongst them. They are considered to be a halal bait but for us that's not the controversy. The controversy is the wives and for us, it is no question that the wives are within lol bait, not only because the Koran uses the term uchealth for wife, but and this is the key point that you cannot run away from. The Quran uses lol bait for the wives of the Prophet Solar System explicitly. It's not just for Moosa and his wife and Ibrahim and his wife, the term lol bait is used for the wives of the Prophet salallahu idea he was sending them and this is incidental, Isaiah verse 33. For

00:14:27--> 00:15:00

us this is the most explicit verse that you cannot deny. And that is Allah saying to the wise the NSA and the FBI, NSA and FBI although it is about oh why is it the prophet or why is it the Prophet? Then Allah says, What corner fee boo taken and stay in your houses while at about Raja Sabha Raja helia to Allah and do not display your beauty like the women of Hollywood display, while criminals salata, Latinas, Jakarta, you know established the prayer give this a cat obey Allah and His Messenger in UD de la Hulu, the HIPAA and Komodo

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

He said lol Beatty, will call hero hero. Allah wants to purify evil from you all, little bait and along wants to give you a little hero a pure thought here basically cleansing who is the Hillel. batyr the whole verse is about the wives of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. So, Sudan, Azov verse 33 is explicit is an organic evidence that lol bait includes our mothers. This is something that we cannot run away from. There's no interpretation really from this of course the other group, of course they they have their way but just a very basic reading of the Quran tells us that lol bait is something that comes under the wise come under them now. What is the main evidence that the other

00:15:53--> 00:16:33

group uses to exclude the wives it is a hadith found in our sources is the famous Hadith called the Hadith or kisa. The Hadith of the covering so famous Hadith additude kisa and it is authentic. And the Hadith will kisa says that one day the Prophet system was sitting in his house and it was cold, he had a blanket on him that was made out of black wool, and a hesson rhodiola one who came and the process until them come inside the blanket. Then after a while Hussein came put him under the blanket as well. Then after a while Fatima came put him under the blanket as well. Then it came so we have IE Fatima Hassan and Hussein and along with the process of them with the other group. These

00:16:33--> 00:16:45

are the famous five the thing the five fingers that they have here under the famous five that they have, this is Fatima Ali Hassan Hussein, you know, these are the ones that they consider to be the the main five. So

00:16:46--> 00:16:53

this and then he covered them up with the black shawl. And he then recited this verse of solitaire

00:16:55--> 00:17:48

in unity to law who Luth haber and Kumar register Ll Beatty, we will call Hiroko to allow us to purify you ll bait and cleanse you a clean cleansing. So he recited this verse, and who is in the shawl, his daughter, his son in law and his cousin and his grandchildren to grandpa Hasson and Hussein, the other group says this incident which is in your books, which is it is our books, clarifies that the Koran implies the Al Bayt is hesitant Hussein, Fatima Ali, and the professor, these five and their descendants, is that clear? So who do they define a little bait? These five and their descendants, they're not interested in mortality. They're not interested in the second

00:17:48--> 00:17:57

cousins. They wanted from this and only this. And they quote this verse primary sorry, this had these primarily, the response is very easy.

00:17:58--> 00:18:51

It is allowed in Arabic all the time to use verses to extrapolate to other meanings as well. Is it rhodiola horn from the debate? Yes. Is Fatima for the debate? Yes, Hassan. Yes, Hussein. Yes. Okay. So we agree, where is there any controversy? He is reciting the verse? And he's saying, allow us to purify you. We agree. Nowhere does it exclude the wives. See, that's where the difference comes. The context of the Koran is wives. But the family is included in the term of Hillel bait. This Hadith emphasizes Fatima and has Anand Hussain and Ali are from the debate. Do we agree Yes or no? Yes, there is no controversy. There's no need to read in more than what the Hadees tells us. The Hadith

00:18:51--> 00:19:32

is telling us that Fatima and Allie rhodiola on whom and their children are from a little bit no problem. And the Quran is saying that and there's also saying the y's are from a little bit. So we do not have any problem with the Hadith of the kisa and the Hadith of the kisser. The Hadith of the cloth means only that the family of the process includes these people, and we have no problem with that. But the Quran and other evidences clearly indicate that the wires are part of the family and not just that the cousins are part of the ad. And every Muslim from the descendants of the new Hashem is a part of the ad of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And this is also proven by the

00:19:32--> 00:19:57

fact that the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam were not allowed to eat from sadhaka. And this is something explicit the process of told Arusha that Don't you know that South Africa is not allowed for us. So he is telling his wives don't take any sadaqa so sada was how long for the wives and they are not biological brainwash him, or process them did not marry the new Hashem. You know.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

Most of his wives are not

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

So the fact that his wives are not going to Hashem doesn't mean anything because your wife is a part of the ad by the Quran, generically and by the Quran specifically understand generic And specifically, the term includes wife and lol baits specifically for the process of includes his wives as well. And therefore there is no question for us that the elevate or the Ubuntu Hashem and these are the the blood ahlulbayt and then you have the by relationship and elevate and those are the wives and the wives of the Prophet salallahu idea he was setting them, they have many blessings as well. And we'll go over more of these blessings when I start the series on the whys of the

00:20:38--> 00:21:25

process of Mashallah, later on. But very briefly, in the Quran, Allah subhana wa tada explicitly mentions in the Quran was a Jew, who, whom, to whom, and his wives are their mothers. This is explicit in the Quran. So totaliser verse eight was a Jew who Omaha to him, his wives are their mothers. So that's why we call them Omaha's, and what meaning and what this means is that first and foremost, we have to, obviously they become held on for us in any manner, that a woman is that is how long she they are our mothers they are there is a Maha Tamiya relationship, it is not allowed for any man to marry after the death of the Prophet system, any of his wives, this is only for him,

00:21:26--> 00:21:40

not for any other man. Also, from this, we learn that the wives of the Prophet system are his in this world and the next and we learned this not just from this ayah but from the hadith of hafsa, or the Allahu anhu, which is in Buddhahood.

00:21:42--> 00:22:26

That the prophet SAW some, you know, some some dispute happened, and he was thinking of divorcing hafsa. And gibreel came to him and said Yasuda law, she is your wife in this world, and in the next, she is your wife in this world, and the next world you cannot, this is a permanent relationship now, with hafsa. So they are his wives in this world, and in the next world, as well. The fact that we give Sadat and Salam upon them. And that is something that is explicit in the Hadith as well, that alongside the other Mohammed, Ali Mohammed, and in some versions, while as YG, Mohammed, and some have had it also it mentions So literally, explicitly, we send Salam upon the as large and the as

00:22:26--> 00:23:10

why Germans whom our mothers are Mahatma meaning and the Prophet sallallahu. Either he was said it would make dua to Allah, that Allah give the Ali Mohammed enough food to sustain Allah Mohammed would quote is enough food to live Don't make us hungry. So it's famous de la or LA give the Al Mohammed, so he calls his wives, because, as you know, when he makes this door, he does not have any sons, right and only one daughter is left alive, that is Fatima. So who is the girl that he is saying, Oh Allah bless the Al Mohammed, my al with enough food so that we are not hungry, who are the Al clearly it is his wives over here. So it is very clear that the wives of the process of as we

00:23:10--> 00:23:28

said, are under the ad and they have a blessing status. Allah says in the Quran in surah tele has a verse 29. scrutinizer, by the way, has many verses about the wives of the Prophet system. And at least six or seven can be mentioned but time is limited here. Allah says that

00:23:29--> 00:24:02

one couldn't turn the turn the law what a Sula would Hirata in the law, ideally more snatam, including the agenda of Lima. Allah is saying whoever amongst you once Allah and His Messenger, then Allah has prepared for you a very high reward. This ayah came down in the famous incident where some of the wives of the Prophet SAW sedum, some of them were demanding more to live. And the Allah then said, You have two choices. You either take this world and I'll give you plenty and you will go or you choose Allah and His messenger

00:24:03--> 00:24:51

and remain with me and be happy with this lifestyle. And this is where Allah says in the Quran, whoever chooses Allah and His Messenger, I have prepared for you a very great reward. And every one of our mothers said we prefer Allah and His messenger. So by the text of the Quran, because they chose to stay with the prophet SAW Selim, Allah is saying I have prepared for you a high place. And Allah says in the Quran, Jani says a Navy less to NACA hadn't been an ISA or wise of the Prophet you are not like any other women. So again, this is in the Quran, experts who sort of realized, oh, why is it the Prophet? You are not like any other women? And Allah says in the Quran

00:24:53--> 00:25:00

that was codenamed Laffey, Bucci Khun is Allah will hikma, remember or wives all that was really

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

sited in your houses of the verses of Allah. So the fact that those wives lived with the prophet SAW said them, they are being commanded. Remember what you learned in your households and recite them, meaning recite the Koran that you heard from the tongue of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So, we therefore affirm that the LL bait the wives and Banu Hashim have a status that is extra special, but what does it mean? It is extra special for us as Sunni Muslims, we believe. And it is explicit in our traditions, that the Al bait our

00:25:40--> 00:25:44

blessings and noble if they are faithful to Islam.

00:25:46--> 00:26:32

And if they are good Muslims, they will get a blessing for being good Muslims, and they will get an extra blessing for being related to the debate or from the debate. But if they are not too good, and it is possible for them to not be good, then their lineage will not help them at all. And their blood will not give them a status in the eyes of Allah. In our religion. lineage does not save you it is your actions. But it is possible that lineage boosts a little bit if your actions are there, it is possible that there's something called shut off and shut off his dignity and honor and respect. And if you have good deeds, then your lineage and honor might help. But if you have no good

00:26:32--> 00:27:13

deeds, then your lineage and honor will be of no help whatsoever. So we do not consider anyone's lineage to be sacred. anyone's lineage. Even if you think about it, Ibrahim alayhis salam and his descendants, we always like to think about the good amongst them. But not all of them were good. Abu lahab was a direct descendant of Ibrahim, just like the Prophet system was a direct descendant in terms of direct male lineage. Abu lahab. And Abdullah, his brother are the same lineage. And Abu lahab is in Johanna. And you know, the rest of them did not embrace Islam other than Hamza and Ibis. So the fact that you have a male lineage going back to a prophet does not make you any extra special

00:27:13--> 00:27:55

or holy. In fact, all of us are the descendants of two prophets, Adam and Noah, every human being around you has prophets in our blood, every human without exception, doesn't make us holy. So we have to get rid of this notion that just because your ancestry has a profit in it makes you special. No, all of our ancestry has to profits without exception, every human being the worst of the worst, Hitler and Stalin have to profits in their blood. So what doesn't make anybody holy? Noah's son rejected his father's faith doesn't mean anything. So we do not consider lineage in and of itself to push you forward into gender. And this is something that our prophets are some explicitly said

00:27:55--> 00:28:42

Howdy, theism. Sahih Muslim, man, Baba be here, I'm here to hula music behind NASA, whoo hoo, who's ever deeds hold him back, then his lineage will not push him forward. If your deeds hold you back, your lineage will not push you forward. And what this means is that your lineage will not help you in gender, in and of itself, it will be your good deeds. But if you have good deeds, and you are from a noble line, then the people will love you a double love, simple as that. And there's nothing wrong with that. And in fact, this is how the world operates. Muslim or non Muslim. This is how the world operates. If you if there is a famous personality that everybody loved, his children will be

00:28:42--> 00:28:57

beloved simply because of his father. That's just the reality of the way the world works. Okay. I visited South Africa recently, and there was an opportunity to visit you know, Nelson Mandela's grandson try we tried to didn't work out.

00:28:59--> 00:29:35

schedules didn't match up. But it was an honor. If I was able to meet him, don't you think I would have jumped at the opportunity, one of his grandsons embraced Islam if you don't know the story, right? So it was talk going on if I can go visit the grandson. Now? Do I know their grandson? No, don't have any friendship? No. Why would I be interested to see the grandson because of whom? The grandfather, not that the grandson himself had done anything you understand? This is the way the world works. He has a noble lineage. And this is a person with somebody in his ancestry that the world admires out of respect you like okay, let me see if I can see him. If we can understand this

00:29:35--> 00:30:00

about a non Muslim. Why is it surprising anything different? If it is from the family of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam is something you actually go out of your way to do. Two weeks ago, I was in Makkah, and one of the chefs I greatly respect and admire is from the sheriff from the sheriff's and he has exactly 36 people between him and the profits of the law while you sell them and I had no fear key questions.

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

To ask no theological issues, but will law he just out of respect that he is of the descendants of the prophets of the law, it was just out of respect that this is a person, an alum, a chef, and I owe him much for the books that have benefited and he knows me, I know him and just to go and visit him, so I visited him and brought an expensive gift just because he is the descendant of the Prophet system. That's it. There's just cut them, we want to show respect to him. It's not gonna do anything, but this is what you do when you love somebody that his family also comes under that love. So we as Sunni Muslims, we affirm that the halal bait have a love and a respect but with one

00:30:38--> 00:31:24

condition, and that is, if they themselves are good, if they are not good, if they are empires, if they're unrighteous, doesn't matter. That case they don't deserve anything. So the Quran and Sunnah therefore, tell us that the Hillel bait occupy a status of respect and distinction only if they are pious, and that respect and distinction will not earn them a special place in gender. their agenda is upon their deeds as the process of even set to fault him. Oh, Fatima, you have to do your deeds. I will not tell you on judgment day. I cannot help you on judgment day. Hadeeth isn't Sahih al Bukhari and the Quran mentions many blessings and the sooner as well mentioned many blessings about

00:31:24--> 00:32:06

the island bait. And I already mentioned a number of them from the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam them and of them is suitable as a verse six, as I said was why do you hold Omaha to him? the whys of the process of our our mothers, and they are our mothers because number one, they are held on for us. Number two, we have to love them with a special love. Number three, we respect them like we respect mothers. Number four, we take lessons from them when a law calls them mothers. This means they must be the best mothers and a good mother What does she do teach her children. So she is a good one a role model for us. So we learn our religion from our mothers. And if you look at

00:32:06--> 00:32:51

the Hadith of the Prophet systems, filk and his personal life, our mothers recorded much of his personal life, our mothers recorded so much about the daily you know, actions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So we learn from them, the etiquettes of Islam. So this verse was why'd you Omaha to home is one of the explicit verses Not only that, the wives are part of the debate, but we have to show them extra love. Why? Because Allah calls them mothers, what do mothers do? Or what do mothers have to show them love? So adult bait must be beloved to us. We have to love the debate, also in the Quran. In surah, shooto, verse 23, there's an interesting verse here. Por la la, la

00:32:51--> 00:33:27

agilon, el el mapa, de fille de se overthrew drove a la say to them, I am not asking anything from you, except love for family. Now, this idea is very interesting. I'm not asking anything from you. Meaning, I'm not asking money from you, or Quraysh. I'm not asking any stipend from you. But I am asking love for family more. What does this mean? Two main interpretations. The first interpretation, I'm asking you to love my family.

00:33:29--> 00:33:45

Now, this interpretation, it is found in some Sunni sources, but it is primarily in the non Sunni versions of Islam. So they say, this verse, the prophet system is telling the people, you have to love my family.

00:33:46--> 00:34:13

But the mainstream interpretation actually is not like this at all. In fact, it is a very interesting interpretation. The Prophet system is speaking to the chorus, this is Surah Shura, verse 23. The process is saying, I'm not asking you any money or kurush. But I am asking you to treat me like you would a beloved family member, which means don't kill me. Don't persecute me, don't kick me out of luck.

00:34:15--> 00:34:59

So they flipped the meaning around. It's not that the profitsystem saying, I'm asking you to love my family. It's as he's telling them, I am your family. I am one of you. What would you do with one of your own? Would you kick him out? No, I'm just saying treat me as family. That's all. So according to this interpretation, this ayah has nothing to do with a little bit. And in fact, that is the correct interpretation. Why do we know this? Because this verse was revealed in early mcca. And in early mcca, was there hessen was there Hussein? Was it even married to Fatima know when this verse came down, there is no five people under the the kisa whereas

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

The other group says, This verse is an explicit verse that Allah is sending the Prophet system to love a little bit. You guys understand? Or am I losing you? You guys understand what I'm saying? The other group, you know the other group, it says the purpose of Islam is to love a little bit you notice as the main purpose of Islam for the right to elevate becomes the main thing of Islam for them. So they have this verse here, say, I'm not asking anything except love of family MOA de Cordoba. What is more different orba. The other group says, I'm not asking you anything except to love my family. The verse doesn't say my family just says family. But the correct interpretations.

00:35:42--> 00:36:26

I'm only asking you that you love me like you would any of your family, my wonderful core, but I'm your corrib I'm your cousin, I'm your second cousin, I'm part of your tribe. You wouldn't kill you wouldn't execute, you wouldn't kick. That's all I'm asking that you treat me like you treat anybody else from your quarterback. And this is clearly the correct meaning as well. Nonetheless, the other meaning is for there and you should and you should know that it does exist. The ahaadeeth also mentioned the blessings of the debate of them, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah chose ki Nana from all the children of Israel. And Kenan is one of the descendants of Israel.

00:36:26--> 00:36:33

Basically, third or fourth descended, we don't know exactly when. And from kena Allah chose Orosz

00:36:34--> 00:37:04

and from coresh Allah chose w Hashem. And from the Banu Hashim, Allah chose me This is a famous Hadith I did this the first Sierra, okay, eight, nine years ago, the famous Hadith out of all the children of smile Allah chose Canada. Out of all the children of Canada by children we mean descendants not actually children. Out of all the children in Canada Allah chose Polish out of all kurush Allah chose Bono Hashem our Ubuntu Hashem Allah chose me now, Allah chose bundle Hashem means

00:37:05--> 00:37:41

there is a blessing for Bono Hashem, it means they have a higher rank than other people again, people get confused. What do you mean they have a higher rank, I thought everybody's equal. We already explained everybody's equal in terms of gender and good deeds and whatnot, yes, but there is something called respect and rank of this world. And when it comes to this dunya people respect others based upon lineage, there's nothing wrong with that, that respect will not cause you to enter gender. But there is something called respect on lineage. And this is what our prophets of Allah while you send them is saying.

00:37:42--> 00:38:26

Also, for us, the famous Hadith of the ki SAP is an explicit evidence that Allah wants to purify the lol bait and Fatima and Ali and has an Hussein are a part of the island bait. So this is very explicit here, that the family of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Allah is saying in you read the law, who do you the banker Marisa Ll Bates Allah wants to purify you a little bit and in one Hadith the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was with Ali and Fatima and has an Hussain and he said Oh Allah, these are my Ll baby llama Hola, hello Beatty. So, these in particular there is no question they occupy a special status now realize when the process and passed away towards the end of his life The only a

00:38:26--> 00:38:50

little bit he has other than his wives are Fatima and Ali and has ended Hussein his daughters all of them have passed away and none of them have progeny that is living onwards. Okay. So realize this, the other three daughters have passed away. So who is left in his lifetime, his wives and Fatima and has an Hussain and Ali. That's all that is the immediate household of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:38:51--> 00:39:44

And of the evidences that indicate the well beta of a high status is the famous Hadith that is called Hadith Saqlain Hadith. We have edited kisa now how the Hadith stockpiling and this hadith Saqlain it goes as follows that once the Prophet sallallahu Sallam stood up towards the end of his life, and he said oh mankind, I am a human like you and it is possible that the angel of death will come and take me at any time. So I will leave after me too heavy matters Saqlain. I will leave after me two heavy matters. Number one, the Book of Allah. In it is the light and it is guidance so hold on to it. And number two, my lol bait

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

I remind you of the rights of a law regarding a little bait. I remind you of the rights of a law regarding a little bait. I remind you of the rights of a law regarding a little bait. So the narrator from jabber said

00:40:00--> 00:40:45

Who are his lol bait? Aren't his wives are a little bait and jabber the narrator responded Yes, his wives are from the lol bait, but they are Hillel bait are those whom sada is how long. And that is the art of ID, the art of it. The other job for and the art of Ibis. All of these are lol bait. So the narrator of the Hadith, and that is Javid, he mentioned that all of these are from the lol bait the wives and all of them as we have said, Now, this hadith is called the hadith of uthappa Lane. And it brings about some confusion in the minds of the masses, especially when the other group uses it. The Hadith is very straightforward. The Prophet system is saying, I'm leaving behind you two

00:40:45--> 00:40:47

very important things.

00:40:48--> 00:40:59

Number one, the Book of Allah follow it, hold on to it, take guidance from it. Number two, my family fear a law with regards to my family.

00:41:01--> 00:41:48

That what is their controversial interest again, the other group reads in more than what the Hadeeth is saying. He is simply saying keep the rights of my family in Czech and give them their health and their do. That's something that we all agree with. The Hadees does not say that my family will take over political authority. The Hadees does not say that my family or my assume that it is it does not say whatever they say it is as follows inspiring nothing. This is our Profit System who loves his family. And he is saying when I'm gone, you will take care of my family and we agree we will take care of his family. So simple as that. So the Hadeeth Colleen does not say that you must follow my

00:41:48--> 00:41:58

family know. The first part of the head is follow the Quran, get guidance from the Quran, he dias from the Koran, the second part of the Hadith.

00:41:59--> 00:42:30

Fear Allah with regards to the rights of my family. You see, there is no correlation. He's simply saying, Get the guidance from the Quran, stick to the Quran, and then you have to give the rights of my family. Excellent. We agree 100% the Hadith is as it is to read in what the other group reads. The Hadith doesn't say that at all. So we again this is one of those famous Hadith, and we have no problems affirming it. But the interpretation differs from us with the other with the other groups

00:42:31--> 00:42:36

and of them as well as the famous Hadith that is reported in

00:42:38--> 00:43:21

Iranian others that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, on the day of judgment, every single necessity every single lineage will be cut, except for my lineage, every lineage will be of no value, except for my lineage. And what this means our scholars have said as I have already explained that those who are righteous from the descendants of the lol bait, they will have some blessings and privilege for being of the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but their righteousness must be there or else their lineage means nothing. And it is mentioned that this hadith was one of the main reasons that aroma rhodiola one wanted to marry omega three I'm the

00:43:21--> 00:44:05

daughter of Ali rhodiola one because he wanted to establish a relationship with the Prophet sallallahu wasallam because of this idea that I want to have my children who are going to come under this hadith as well. So our model the Allah one was very eager to marry within the lol bait because he wanted to get that necessity that the Hadith also mentions and already mentioned that we the Salatu Brahimi and the Muslim Ummah Muhammad, it says Allahumma salli ala Muhammad Ali Beatty wild as YG hawala Ria t. So it's very explicit this ally Brahimi and some versions, we give Sadat upon the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and what this means therefore, every time a

00:44:05--> 00:44:54

Muslim says in Salah Allahumma salli, ala Mohammed Ali Mohammed Kama, Salat Allah Ibrahim, Ali Ibrahim, what this means we are sending salaat upon the wives and the family of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, can you imagine how many hundreds of billions of times that die is being made? In any given moment? Hundreds of millions of people are saying this in any given moment. And they have been saying it for the last 14 centuries. And they will say it until judgment date. And so just the math boggles you. Imagine the blessings of the debate that every Muslim is making to raise their ranks forgive their sins, suddenly either means that Allah mentioned them. And when Allah

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

mentioned somebody, this raises their ranks. Okay, so Allah sila is true

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

I mentioned them and the mere mentioning by Allah means the ranks have been raised. So just this is enough of an indication of the blessings of the debate that every single one amongst them, we are making dua for them to constantly be raised up by Allah subhanahu wa Tada. Now, for us

00:45:21--> 00:46:08

as Sunni Muslims, the Sahaba and the Al Bayt are not two distinct categories. Rather the Al Bayt are within the Sahaba. As you know, the other group make a distinction, and they don't like the Sahaba and they consider the island bait to be basically the only rightly guided people. So I think that it is very important to quickly go over some of the evidences that the Sahaba loved the LL bait. And this is something well known. There was no animosity between Abu Bakar and Roman and Roman and between the Ireland paint, rather, there was intermarriages and there was nothing but love and respect. And this is proven by so many narrations workers. So the rhodiola one, he visited, audio

00:46:08--> 00:46:58

the Allahu anhu and an Ibis in their houses, and the headset is on sahadi and he said, I swear by Allah. It is more beloved to me to be kind to the family of the Prophet system than it is to be kind to my own family. Hadith in Sahih Bukhari I consider it to be more important to show courage and generosity to the family of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam Dr. Robert neuroticism have bhulaiyaa Minh taraba Tiana to be loving to the family of the Prophet system is more of an act of worship to me than to be loving to my own family. This is a robot curse. And he is speaking to it and above and the others of the island. Also a robot courtesy

00:46:59--> 00:47:15

also inside Bahati. He said to the people, that otaku Mohammedan sallallahu snfa, Halle Berry Beatty, he guard the rights of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam by guarding his family. This is Abu Bakar to

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

guard the rights of the Prophet system by guarding his family, also and so I Buhari although this disciple Howdy, howdy, the workers, you know, love to the family of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that a worker finished praying Salah to Lhasa and he walked outside the masjid. And he saw hessen, the grandson of the Prophet system playing with the other kids. So he picked up his son and put him on his back. He picked up his son and put him on his back, and he began reciting poetry that made my father be given ransom for you. hessen. So he is saying the Abbey, May my father be given for you. And that is something that they would only use for his grandfather. aboubaker never said

00:48:00--> 00:48:45

this to any other Sahabi but now he is saying it for the grand son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he began to diversify in Arabic. You will look like then it'd be You don't look like Ali. Okay. And Ali was standing in front of him to kind of you know, tease Okay, you look like then maybe you don't look like it. You look like then it'd be You don't look like Ali and Ali rhodiola have began to laugh at that. It's a joke. Like, you know, it's a friendly joke. And this incident is one of the most authentic. It's one of the most authentic incidents that indicates that I the Abu Bakr Siddiq were friendly with one another. They're joking and laughing and teasing that a worker is

00:48:45--> 00:49:28

picking Hassan and putting him on his shoulder and playing with him in this regard. There was no animosity between the two of them. It was in fact appointed in political and religious religious religious leadership by Abu Bakar. The biomater Hot Tub birth man landed on the Aloha and all of them used it as ministers as I've gone over in my Sierra lectures as well, or whatever the hot tub and earth man and their loves as well for the founders of the process as well known of them side body as well, that como de la one in the famous drought in 18 hedgerow 1800 there was a massive drought, people died, flocks died and the the the Sahaba decided to do a famous rain prayer. They

00:49:28--> 00:49:59

hadn't done this for many, many years. So they did a shout out to this Discord. And the whole people of Medina gathered and Omar on the left hand gave a whole tuba so all of the Sahaba that are alive are there all of their children are there Omar gives a hold of a whole bunch of this this cop, then when it comes time to make dua you're supposed to make during the day so that that is difficult, right? Many of you have never prayed this. This is this is a special prayer. Where you make do ask for rain when there is severe drought when it came time for

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

Do I remember the last one said that, Oh Allah, we used to make dua to you through your Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now we will make dua to you through the uncle of your Prophet, stand up above and make dua for us. So he told a bus to come forward. And he told him to make dua on behalf of the whole people of Medina. And this is a great honor to our bus or the law, one that he is telling him to come and make dua. And this is something that is done publicly in front of all of the people to show the honor to the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And this is one of the famous incidents again, that indicates the status that Armando de la Juan gave to the elevate as

00:50:49--> 00:51:33

well. Of course, we mentioned that Omar of the law one also wanted to marry within the debate. And that is why he was persistent a number of times asking either the loved one to marry or medical film until finally, under the law, he relented and gave a medical film to him. And then of course, they had children after this as well. It is well known, and Ramadan hautala de la one he once said to Ibis, rhodiola. One, he said to a bus that will law he your Islam, the day you embraced Islam was more beloved to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam than the Islam of my father, had he been alive? I notice remember saying to our boss, when did our boss embrace Islam? publicly? He embraced

00:51:33--> 00:52:01

Islam and the conquest of Makkah. Okay, publicly, we know privately, it might have been different, right? So he is praising a boss and he is saying, You're embracing of Islam, made the Prophet system much happier than if my father had been alive and had embraced Islam. And this is something again, that indicates Omar understanding the father of Allah debate, also hon hautala de la one, when the time came to write down the, the Treasury assignments.

00:52:03--> 00:52:04

Again, go back to my electron model.

00:52:06--> 00:52:45

People would get a salary from the government back then everybody who's in the city, and who's working would get a salary. Everybody call it a type of social welfare system, a type. But not everybody in the city, everybody who's basically from early Islam, you get the point, everybody who has done something in early Islam, Abu Bakar of the law, one gave everybody the same amount. You remember that? Okay, he gave everybody the same. He goes, I don't know who's up there. Who's not. I'm not judging a law. We'll just agenda in this world. We're all Muslims together. So a worker gave everybody the same amount. When Obama came to office A year later, he said, How can I give the one

00:52:45--> 00:53:16

who embraced Islam and fought in early Islam the same as the one who embraced after the conquest of Makkah. And Allah says, la yesterday, welcome, man, unfathomable attractive. It's not the same, those who embrace before and after. So he had a very detailed schemata a hierarchy of ranks. And the number one rank, somebody came to him and said, make your family the highest, the ID, your dad, and he goes, No.

00:53:17--> 00:53:18

I will make

00:53:19--> 00:54:10

whomever whoever a lot preferred higher than me. And he began with the island bait as the highest rank in money. The number one category in money was the lol bait. He gave them more than anybody else. Then came, the early converts and MCC then came the balloon then came so then all of this double card came. And then he put his own family the ID way at the end, where according to that scheme, they arrived Subhanallah right. So who was number one lol bait. The bait caught more than anybody else simply by being a little bait. So he is giving a status to a little bait that indicates what he thinks of the shut off and of the of the rank of lol bait. And of course, with mon rhodiola.

00:54:10--> 00:54:57

One is the only human being in the history of mankind, who was married to two daughters, you know of a prophet as we know, and this is a shout out for him and that's why he's called the new rain. The reason he's given the title of thunder rain is a blessing for him simply for having been married to two of the daughters of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And it is a that have been mentioned that whenever a bus walked by in Medina, then even if Abu Bakar or Omar or a man were on a horse, and they saw a bus, they would stop, get down and be on the ground when our bus pass by so that they are not on a horse when a bus passes by out of carom and out of generosity and out of

00:54:57--> 00:55:00

respect to the uncle of the prophets of the law who it was

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

So this is just an outer respect given to the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu, Allah who was sent him. And all of this shows us again, the status that is given to the little bit. And of course, between the law one and our mother, our issue as we know, it is true to say there were some minor tensions. But these tensions never ever reached the level of impugning the character of the other, that they agree to disagree. And it was basically at that, and this is proven that they didn't impugn the character by a number of interesting Hadith. of them is the Hadeeth. Oh, should I have any honey that she, he went to the low Anna? And he said, Oh, I should tell me. Basically, I'm

00:55:44--> 00:55:51

paraphrasing the filth of wiping over the socks must either her fame. So she said, Go to it.

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

Because he would see the Prophet system and suffer and I wouldn't see him in that time. And he is more knowledgeable than me. Can you imagine and there is, as you know, things between them. But now a fifth question is being asked, she has no problem saying go to the interview. He knows what I do not know. See, they didn't accuse one another of being bad or evil differences happened. We know those differences were unfortunately, you know, manifested in a manner that things happen as we went over them. We weren't over them. But there was no actual hostility or impugning of character. And that is why even when the Battle of the jungle happened, the Battle of the the camel happened, and

00:56:37--> 00:57:19

are the law, the law one basically, you know, won that particular battle, he made sure that our issue was treated with dignity and respect. And he sent armed guards back with her to protect her back to Medina. And he gave honor to her and he spoke to her from behind the curtain and veil and gave her the honorific titles, and he called her Yeah, Omar, my dear mother, even if what happened happened, the respect that they had for each other's Islam, they knew that they were sincere. And whatever happened happened, it did not lead to actual animosity. And it is well known that Abu Bakr and Omar and earthman, they used to do a lot of wind for every single religious and political role.

00:57:19--> 00:58:05

And he as well took advantage of that and did not have a problem cooperating with them. So the claim that there's any animosity between them simply has no basis historically. And Alito, the law one had many children, so we get to work on earth, and we get to ollie, he had 15 sons and 18 daughters, so much of the debate goes through him. However, once again, those who preserve their lineage were only from Hassan and Hussein, all of these other 13 and 15 sons. They're still around, but by and large, over the centuries, people have lost track of who is who, and the main people that are left alive that room that counter lineage are from Hassan and Hussein rhodiola Juan, and there is no doubt that

00:58:05--> 00:58:45

these are the main debate. However, all the descendants of it are a little bit even from other than Fatima rhodiola. Juana of course, has an entire set of the only ones from Fatima, and no doubt they're shut off is the highest because they are the descendants of Fatima as well. But the descendants of Ali technically are also all added bait. As for Hassan and Hussein. Their status is of course, the highest in terms of the debate of the children of the Prophet so set them because they are considered to be as if they are grandsons, even though they are grandsons from their mother. Still, when it comes to the family, the process of them. It is as if they are grandsons,

00:58:45--> 00:59:35

even through the Father, and they're given a very high level of respect, and there are many Hadith about their blessings of them is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Hasson and Hussein are the Sayed of all of the young men of Jenna ceja Dasha Baba halogen has an Hussain are the leaders of all of the young men of gender. So this is a praise for Hassan and her son. And of them is that one day he was playing with Hassan and Hussein and he hugged the both of them. And he said, in Houma, Rihanna Teja Mina dunia these two boys are my flowers from this world. So he called them by Hannah Teja, my two flowers from this world and of them that he was giving the hotel and has

00:59:35--> 00:59:43

an Hussain walked into the masjid. And they were stumbling through the people the famous incident, and they couldn't make their way through because it was a dense crowd.

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

So he interrupted the hotel, and he went down into the audience, and he brought the both of them on to the member. And he then recited the verse in them and Walla Walla to confirm that your children are a test for you. And he said, I saw my

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

Children, my sons, I saw my son's falling here and there and I couldn't stand to see them, you know, tripping, so I interrupted the hood and brought them on. So he's holding his hand and Hussein giving the whole tuba. And this is an honor for the both of them. And of course, the famous Hadith as well, that once in another version, another headset, he gave the whole debate with only hesson. And he held hessen in the hotel, and he kissed him in front of all of the audience. And he said, in Ebony had a say, you decide it is in Bahati, this son of mine, so he called his son, a son, this son of mine is a sacred and the meaning of sacred is a respected leader, right, the meaning of sacred a

01:00:45--> 01:01:37

respected leader, a leader who is obeyed, this son of mine is a leader. And a time will come when he shall reconcile between two warring parties of the believers. So this time came in the time of Mario de la one, when there was going to be a third civil war, and hasn't said enough is enough, you take the hell off, I'm out. So he reconciled. And this is something that the Prophet system predicted that he is going to reconcile between two great major parties, and hasn't read the law, one from our perspective, even though her son and her son are both Beloved, but hasn't has a special blessing over are saying, and that is that the process of specifically said to him, this son of mine, and he

01:01:37--> 01:02:23

said, is going to be a leader. And he said he will reconcile So from our theology has ended her saying are both Beloved, but hasn't has one rank above, from the other groups theology, as you know, you're all aware is the exact opposite, right? And in fact, in some versions of that strand, such as married ism, for example, they skipped over has an altogether some versions has that is not even an Imam. And he skips over Why? Because he gave the power tomorrow. And so this kind of say this, this takes them away. So that gives them weakness in their eyes and strength in our eyes, because he preferred preferred to avoid bloodshed and gave up power, even though and this is the irony, we

01:02:23--> 01:02:40

believe he was the more righteous of the two without a question, we believe is the better of the two. But to give up any bloodshed, he gave up his political power, and because of this, he has given honor and respect, and has another law one, according to every history textbook,

01:02:42--> 01:03:34

was sent by Ali to protect Earth man and the time of the massacre. And this to us is one of the clearest indications there was no animosity when Earth man is surrounded by the mob. It tells his sons to go and protect and hessen for reasons we went over one went over his name was a bit sick and whatnot. Hasson became a personal bodyguard of earthman rhodiola, one during the siege, and on the morning of his death, has and remained in the house. And earthman knew he was going to die. Because of the dream. Remember, I told her went over the story. And earthman insisted to Essen I'm fine, nothing's going to happen leave and he said is Juma. You have to go get ready. He insisted and made

01:03:34--> 01:03:57

a way out because he did not what happened to be in the house because he knew he was gonna die and hasn't insisted to be in the house. But finally when he kept on persisting, persisting, persisting has been left, and then the mobs attacked, what does this show has sent an earthman have an issue? Of course not. So again, from our perspective, it is very, very clear that has sent an Hussain are definitely of the

01:03:58--> 01:04:15

righteous people, and they have a very high ranking in the eyes of Allah subhana wa tada and of course, in the eyes of the believers as well. Now one thing as well before we finish off and conclude and start again inshallah on Wednesday, one thing as well, that

01:04:17--> 01:04:26

what do the other groups say about the blessings of the debate? The first thing you need to realize is that the other group, the non Sunni group,

01:04:27--> 01:05:00

we can honestly say that one of the main points of Islam for them is the concept of believing in the debate. It becomes one of the primary Pillars of Islam is to believe in the debate. What does it mean to believe in the debate? It means that they believe the Hillel bait have political and religious authority over us. They have a rank that is assigned by a law. They have a holiness and they have something called infallibility

01:05:00--> 01:05:48

They can never make a mistake. So whatever they say it is as if it is coming from Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And they read in many verses in the Quran to imply a little bit. For example, Allah says in the Quran, la Yama su lol mocha Harun, no one touches it, except the pure, they say the I will bait or the pure, the motorhome or the elevate. And this for us is the angels in the heaven, right. For example, the whole ayat of nor that Allahu nudists of our era muthoni, communicative era Muscat is ID and Misbah has felt him and they said each one they go over like this. So if you look at the other group, you will find two or three dozen verses in the Quran, they are linked with the debate,

01:05:48--> 01:06:32

as well, you will find many, many a hadith that we have never heard, never come across, and they link it to the debate. And those are things that from our perspective, it is simply beyond the scope of of reason and rationality. And for us, we do not believe that the debate in and of themselves are holy, they only will be given respect if they have imagined taqwa. Otherwise, in and of themselves, they are not going to enter agenda simply because they are a little bit from the perspective of the other group, they are literally holy, ie they're exuding Baraka, and their presence is Baraka. And they have powers that Allah has blessed them with that are above the powers of human beings, and the

01:06:32--> 01:06:46

creation bows down to them. So they give this exaggerated respect that from our perspective, not only is it heretical, but at times it borders on even the concept of tawheed. And we therefore disagree with their understanding of the

01:06:47--> 01:06:55

debate. And there evidences are beyond the scope of this, you know, this class. The the final point, my voice is kind of breaking away apologize.

01:06:57--> 01:07:44

The final point that we have, and that is that how do we know if somebody is from the lol bait or not. And the response is, there is no way to know this other than the histories that has been preserved by the local families that have preserved them. In other words, there is no authentic way to verify who is a little bait. Other than there are only a few families that are remaining, whose lineage is documented by themselves, and by the people around them for many, many centuries. So for example, the most famous of them is the Sharif family of Makkah, who were rulers of Makkah for over 1000 years. They were the mayors and the governors of Makkah for over 1000 years since the time of

01:07:44--> 01:07:58

the Ibis, since they were the governors of Makkah. until World War One, it was the Sharif clan, that was the the rulers of Mecca, and the Sharif clan or descenders basically have has entered the law one and

01:07:59--> 01:08:36

the current king of joiners from that client and the teacher that I visited in Macau as well. He is from that class of the Sharif clan. They have documented their lineage. And it is known by themselves and by others. So this is a part of that clan, you know it. And it's documented generation after generation. as well. There are various families that have kept their lineage alive and well. And they have recorded it and even taymiyah and others they mentioned anybody who claims to be from the ad elbaite, the proof is on them. If they cannot bring the proof, they are not considered to be from Ireland, but otherwise everybody would claim it. So simply to have a legend or

01:08:36--> 01:09:18

to have a folktale doesn't make you from a little bit, there must be proof. Once the proof is established. This doesn't mean anything, except that you cannot accept sort of nzqa as the only thing that it means. Otherwise, we might give you some more respect in this world. But in the Hereafter, it doesn't earn you any extra rank of gender, those amongst them who are righteous and Sahaba. We give them extra respect those amongst them who died as non Muslims like Abu lahab they don't deserve any respect at all. So it is all linked to Islam and those within Islam. We love them just because of their relationship to the Prophet system. Otherwise, they do not have special

01:09:18--> 01:09:57

powers. They do not have miraculous rights. They do not have infallibility. There is no basis for this whatsoever in our religion. And honestly all you need to do is to look at various politicians that come from the Sharif clan. Let's just leave it at that. And you realize just because your blood is from that descendant doesn't mean you are holy at all. You can betray the oma, you can sell your soul to Zionist and you can do other things. And you can be from the lineage of the process of doesn't mean anything. That's enough of an indication that if you don't get holiness, the other group claims you become holy. Well look doesn't mean anything. Your actions is what will bring you

01:09:57--> 01:10:00

is an honor and if you are from the

01:10:00--> 01:10:40

elbaite then those actions will be added to your beauty. And if you are not from if you're not from the righteous and only then your lineage to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be of no benefit to you. So in a nutshell, and with this, we conclude the LL bait or the wives of the Prophet sallallahu. I sent him after they married before they were married, they were not held bait, but once they are married, they are permanent elbaite. Now, obviously, the families of the wives do not become their brothers, they do not become acquainted with only the wives. And then in our times, the ones that are still living, they are whoever is the descendants of the Hashem. And if you want to

01:10:40--> 01:11:14

say the ultimate polyp as well, it doesn't it's a theoretical issue. Realistically, the only people that still know they are descendants of Al Bayt are the remnants of some of the Hasani and hussaini families. And perhaps perhaps there are some families in Iraq that still have dissent from the bus, because of their buses. And they are a little bit if they can prove that they are from the bus, then they are a little bit, and a few pockets here. And there. It is said that some of the

01:11:15--> 01:11:56

others as well have descends, but Allah knows best in reality, only a few families remain who document their lineage. And for these families, we say, Well, good for you, if that is the case, and it's a blessing and a shutoff if you are pious, and we will respect you if you are otherwise it will not help you in this world or in the next world, what your blood or lineage is, we love the debate with the love of the Prophet sallallahu is and if they are worthy of that love, we respect them if they're worthy of that respect, but we do not give them supernatural powers, we do not give them religious hierarchy, we do not say their opinions in religion are any more or less than the opinions

01:11:56--> 01:12:35

of anybody else, they are regular human beings, but their attachment to the family or the process and brings them the level of respect that is deserved. And the closer they are to the Prophet says that I'm in time also the closer they become. So obviously, I mean another point here, you know, you cannot compare it to the law one with the descendant 35 generations down, obviously it is much closer. So the farther you go, then obviously the lesser that it becomes, but we affirm that they are indeed the most blessed family and what an honor to belong to that family and with that inshallah to Allah we opened up for for q&a and then inshallah inshallah, from this week we'll be

01:12:35--> 01:12:55

starting the debate series, which is the wives of the Prophet, so 70 mahat series to shallow to Allah. So from this Wednesday, inshallah Tada, we will be doing the mothers of the believers, and hopefully, inshallah we'll finish within next three months and that will be the final series in shallow data for us

01:13:09--> 01:13:10

on

01:13:11--> 01:13:15

the fact that the house has been cooking the ice cream.

01:13:19--> 01:13:31

So this is an interesting question that even hedger, the question is as follows. That once the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entered his house, and he was cooking some food,

01:13:32--> 01:14:15

and the Prophet system said, What is in that? Can I get some of the food? And she said, Oh, this is sadhaka, I cannot give it to you. So he is saying, Why was she cooking it? So the response is that in the house of the Prophet system, there were multiple people living, including the Marathi were living there, other people were living there as well. So it's not just him. But she did not eat. And she thought that he could not eat as well. Then he asked, but what is the source? So he said, Oh, buddy, Roz Sadako was there and she gifted it to us. So then the problem said it was so Dr. burrito, but when she gifted it, then it becomes a hydeia to us. So now we can eat from it. So we have to

01:14:15--> 01:14:38

understand that, you know, people are coming in and out of the house or the process, and I should like any hostess, she is cooking for the people that might be coming in. So she was cooking something for the people coming in and out, but not for herself. And for the process of the longer I said him. So she said, This is not for us here. But then he said, No, actually, it's not sada and it is allowed for us, but it's a good question in the chat. Yes, good.

01:14:47--> 01:14:47

For you, sir.

01:14:49--> 01:14:53

Winning, he's winning everything and conquering the city.

01:14:54--> 01:14:58

And at the same time, he's been loved by his friends by his family.

01:15:00--> 01:15:02

Now, obviously there is a divine

01:15:04--> 01:15:19

winning at the same time you do love an average man when we look at an average man, but also successful men will tell you if you're not hating you're not successful. So what are the human behaviors and characteristics that we?

01:15:33--> 01:15:44

I don't agree, though you're saying that somebody has said that if you're not hated, you're not successful, but that's not our rule. Not at all. On the contrary,

01:15:45--> 01:15:53

so you're always gonna have some enemies in our process and that enemies, but for us, the sign of a truly great man is that righteous people love him.

01:15:55--> 01:16:36

And this is in the Quran. And in this wonder, when you one of the signs of being a good person is that you are beloved in the Medina Armando wiremu sada Howdy, CH Ar Rahman Buddha, those who are righteous and do good, Allah will write for them love and the hesitancy, Bahati, when Allah loves somebody, he says to do real, I love him, and the angels love him and the people of this world love him. So the enemies that you will have, are going to be enemies that are not worthy to have his friends Abuja, hon Abu lahab type of people, you don't want them on your site. There are filters come anyway, let them be who they are. And honestly, if you look at the world today, look at the

01:16:36--> 01:17:20

islamophobes they are nasty people they really are their clock and their demeanor and their irrational hatred. They're not noble, they are your enemies. It's a sign that we are correct honestly, you know, they're not noble people, these people so our prophets, Allah said them those who oppose him and and I gave you know, this year you you know the zero if you listen to the series, I was very clear that, generally speaking, the noble enemies end up converting a boost to fans The classic example. So hate had been the classic example. These are people they didn't stoop to a nasty level. And eventually Allah guided them to Islam, but those that were downright mean and nasty till

01:17:20--> 01:17:47

they died. You know, a Buddha has a fair amount of aroma. Here he is the worst, his clock is the worst, his demeanor is the worst. And he remained that way to the end. So, it's not a sign of success to not be despised. No, it's a sign of success that the ones who despise you they're not worthy of your endure, they're, they're of a certain character. And I think we see that in the life of the prophets of Allah. And Allah knows best. Yes, sister in tobacco, you have it. Oh, okay. Go ahead. Go ahead.

01:17:50--> 01:17:50

So I said

01:18:10--> 01:18:13

yes. So So the question is,

01:18:14--> 01:18:17

so the question is that in Indian Pakistan, there's the concept of say it

01:18:19--> 01:18:50

in Arab lands, there's also Sharif and others. So I have mentioned this many times, and I just quoted been to me as well, anybody who claims to be added bait, which is said the proof is on them, merely claiming doesn't make USA it. And it is an undeniable fact that in our culture, there is a preponderance of science, right? It is an undeniable fact that the percentage of seniors in Indian Pakistan is higher than the percentage in Mecca and Medina

01:18:52--> 01:19:07

you know, so I always joke like this and I don't mean to be nasty inshallah, I'm from that region. So I'm not I'm putting my own people down myself. So just saying that, it says if all the descendants of the process have migrated Pakistan, it doesn't work that way. You know, every second family claims to be saved. It doesn't work that way.

01:19:09--> 01:19:11

Allah knows best but it appears that

01:19:13--> 01:19:26

when the Hindus of the Indian subcontinent converted, they adopted for themselves names that made themselves feel a part of the establishment, that it sends our backers directly.

01:19:27--> 01:20:00

That is that were more far Okay. Okay. And some some misses, you know, just they said, you know, let's say either Sheriff or whatnot. And over time, over 510 generations, their ancestor descendants began actually believing, oh, Farooqi. Our father is our mobile hottub you know, the whole photokey family migrated to you know, Lahore Mashallah diabolical. No saying so this type of feeling it kinda sorta it's something that whether it's not making fun of the photo Christians I know you, I know we have photo proceedings in the audience, guaranteed half the audience's

01:20:00--> 01:20:34

autoclean said DLT and the other half is say it so amongst yourselves what he is, yes. How many correlations we have as well here, right? So I mean, these are just, you know, everybody's looking everybody else. My own grandmother claim she's got it. I mean, you're saying don't don't I'm not putting anybody down. Well, like my own dad used to say the same thing you know? So it's nothing, I'm not being any personal here. It's like, you take it with a grain of salt. Okay? If you are, so what I mean, Allah knows best, you know, until you claim the proof until you bring the proof, then these are mere claims. Okay, now, it just so happened, FYI, that I actually discovered my

01:20:34--> 01:20:59

grandmother was actually true in this claim, believe it or not, I used to dismiss it my whole life. But it turns out that she was true in this regard. But long story, but my grandmother side is from a bus not from Hanson and Hussein, our bus side. So maybe we discovered this the very difficult way after a lot of research. Unfortunately, the one person who saw the shujaa as a child in

01:21:01--> 01:21:21

in Lucknow, he saw it back in the 30s and 40s. And then by that migration, it didn't, but I have a relative who told me that he saw the shadow all the way back to our bus and he remembers it clearly that it was a lineage back there. point is that Okay, so now, okay, so I discovered it now what doesn't change, you know, huh? Oh, I become automated Qureshi.

01:21:23--> 01:22:03

Okay. So I mean, it doesn't matter at all doesn't say so what is there to do? So my point is, again, maybe some of it is true. Maybe it's not just true, but it's my I am very skeptical personally. And I think it is historically true to say, and we learned this from our books of history that when the Hindus converted, they adopted the names of the people who gave power to them, and they adopted their tribes as well. So there might have been one person from the koresh in the army of you know, Muhammad, mocassin. And 100. People said, Okay, we'll also take the name. So those descendants they kept on calling themselves the same, the same, the same, until maybe one of them actually began to

01:22:03--> 01:22:10

believe we are actually descendants of flourish. Most of them are not like this is simply not true. Okay. Yes, go out in the backyard.

01:22:24--> 01:22:41

So to be a part of Al bait, the question is, must you be from the male descendants? If so, how do we understand has been an Hussein has entered Hussein are an exception, the only exception to the rule, and they are the exception for many reasons of them. The Prophet system explicitly said, This son of mine,

01:22:42--> 01:23:30

and they are given an exception because he had no male lineage obviously. So I will bait or all the blue Hashem including the sons of IE from other women. They are a little bit, but how can you deny that the LL bait from Hassan and Hussein have a special status in our hearts? I mean, it's common sense. They have a much higher status because their lineage through Fatima is directly to the Prophet sallallahu. I knew he was sending them. So the only exception to have a special status is Hasson and Hussein even though they are Al Bayt through ID and Aliyev nebuta live and I will call him and threw up dermopathy because as brainwash him, right, so allyl bait is beyond ID It is

01:23:30--> 01:23:53

beyond. It is the bundle Hashem, but out of the blue Hashem, how can anybody deny that the one family that is going to be the creme de la creme, they're going to be the best of the best is Hasson and Hussein and their descendants, okay. So the, the daughters of the Banu Hashim will not pass lineage down.

01:23:54--> 01:24:00

The Daughters of the seeds and the sheriff's will not pass their seat and Sheriff down.

01:24:01--> 01:24:32

Because in Islam, it is the father who gives the lineage not the mother. And this is something that is no difference of opinion over. Our Prophet says Adam said the child is ascribed to the bed it was born on which means the child is ascribed to the father who was married to the woman that was born. So the shadow of the nessip goes back to the Father. So the children of a lady from the new Hashem will not be considered to be by new Harsha.

01:24:34--> 01:24:44

Only the children from the men of Ubuntu Hashem will be considered the new harsher and this is something that is well known. Okay. Final question before I finish off, yes. Bismillah.

01:24:49--> 01:24:59

So, a good question. Is there something called homeless and it does a go to the debate. Yes, there is something called homeless and it is something that is explicit in the Quran.

01:25:00--> 01:25:26

And in the Sunnah and in the books are filled and because sadhaka nzqa is not allowed for the debate, so they get something called homeless or homeless because the homeless itself what is the homeless? So, if there is a legitimate Jihad and there is war booty that is given, then one fifth of it goes to

01:25:28--> 01:25:48

Allah and His messenger. Now, what is a lion is messenger, what does it mean? It means that, according to the books of fifth that one sift will further be divided into five categories and it will be given to us other current forgotten masakan and whatnot and one fifth of it will go back to the actual elbaite

01:25:50--> 01:26:17

why because they cannot take sort of nzqa So, one fifth of one fifth of those aneema So, that's 125 correct. 125 of those aneema will be given to the actual Ll bait so if they were ever to arise such a situation and they are somewhere around in the world and they will get this homeless al homos of their Okay.

01:26:18--> 01:26:19

Yes.

01:26:35--> 01:26:40

Very good question. How often sup asks that how about the other Hadith that I'm leaving behind the Quran and the Sunnah.

01:26:41--> 01:26:44

So in fact, there are two separate Hadith,

01:26:45--> 01:27:08

two separate Hadith. The one of them, the Profit System is saying, I'm leaving behind two heavy things, Saqlain The first of them the book of Allah follow it, get guidance from it. The second of them, my family, fear a law with regards to the rights of my family. So this hadith is simply saying I'm leaning back to heavy things. The other head, he says,

01:27:09--> 01:27:14

I'm leaving behind you two things, if you hold on to them, you will never go astray.

01:27:16--> 01:27:26

The Quran and the Sunnah. That's a totally separate Hadith. And that's something that we base our religion on now. The other group comes along and makes a

01:27:27--> 01:28:10

merging, I'm leaving behind two things, if you hold on to them, you will never go astray the Koran and my little bait that's not in a Muslim is not in any sign a book of Hadith. And Allahu Allah, but it is simply not an authentic hadith. I mean, the odds of it are very weak. The authentic Heidi's in our books are one of the two. The first one is simply reminding people to fear a law with regards to his family. And this is something totally valid. The Prophet says his family is the best family, the holiest family, this the blended family, and he is leaving this world and he is saying, protect my family. Excellent. We accept this. The second Hadith is saying, if you hold on to two things, you

01:28:10--> 01:28:49

will never go astray. The Quran and Sunnah. And this is certainly theology. The other group constructs a narrative that is not authentic from these two Hadith and they say are leaving behind two things if you hold on you will never go astray. The Quran and my family follow them. No in our books, there's no such Hadith like that you understand is a very good question. I didn't want to go too advanced in this lecture, but it's a very good question. The other group that is the main Hadith that they base their theology on, which is not found in our tradition and an authentic hadith inshallah okay, but that we will
