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

Remember

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

was that he's an mobila, embrace Islam, on the hands of a governor whose name was your man, a joke

00:00:13--> 00:00:22

and the amendment. And therefore, often at the end of the limited amount of audio, you would have the name and Goofy. Adobe was one of

00:00:23--> 00:00:27

us, the governor of that facility, where my

00:00:28--> 00:00:31

great grandfather had embraced Islam

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

was father smart, he was

00:00:42--> 00:00:48

our pious man it himself, he was regarded as an arranger of the study, ranging from demonic

00:00:51--> 00:01:16

he also was completely illegible Barack Obama, in the trenches this and also he was a very close companion of Apple house and he was house Adobe was a prominent student of the students will remember what it was luck, and math, Mohamad and Mr. Musa was

00:01:18--> 00:01:21

a Ghost House study pilot.

00:01:23--> 00:01:27

He was a very close Companion of the father the amount of value

00:01:29--> 00:01:37

to this degree, that after a mom who had his father passed away, once he was young, he actually became the Guardian, and

00:01:38--> 00:01:44

he became the guardian of the amount of people who love and he will, and you know, you might be nurtured a

00:01:45--> 00:01:48

lot. As far as your Father,

00:01:49--> 00:02:00

you will be a businessman, and will be very wealthy businessman, to the degree that he does quite well behind the durations mentioned, while he was dying.

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

He said that never has haraam into the wealth that they earn.

00:02:10--> 00:02:16

And then he went further, he said, Never has that which you don't put into the wealth.

00:02:18--> 00:02:21

Not even that which is doubtful. And

00:02:22--> 00:02:30

lo and he grew up and they told him his statement. And he said, My father has spoken the truth because a man on his deathbed always speaks the truth, you know, you're going to your Lord.

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

At that time, you're you only speak the truth.

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

But for

00:02:40--> 00:02:52

healthy, but while he was still a child, almost Pam Obama took away his eyesight. And the reason mentioned that his mother would make one produced one for him.

00:02:55--> 00:02:55

In

00:02:58--> 00:03:16

the other salon at all time to make love of a child. Until one night, she saw a dream that Ibrahim alayhi salatu. Salam is informing her that allows power Allah has accepted as laws and a love of Allah is

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

restored the eyesight.

00:03:20--> 00:03:38

The ration meant that you woke up and she woke a child up and Allah, Allah, Allah has thought, the eyesight of many things which can be sitting here about, you know the virtues of the wall of parents, and having pious parents. This was among, among

00:03:40--> 00:03:52

alleles in appearance. The man who was wealthy was very well, but who never allow Iran to enter the stomach for being children, a mother who trust with a

00:03:55--> 00:03:59

strong trust, as you may draw for a child at a time paint a loved

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

one, and you restore the eyesight of a marble. How do people look? And then from this topic, how do people love

00:04:08--> 00:04:13

you became a hobbit as a very young age.

00:04:14--> 00:04:22

a loved one thought again mo very rich tend to memory, you know, computers would devise on a mobile hottie

00:04:24--> 00:04:31

Allah, Allah gave a very retentive memory, to the degree that when he was a child, he still had to study by

00:04:34--> 00:04:35

a one day new study.

00:04:37--> 00:04:46

And is she drinking a chain of mission beyond from a blue domain and again from Ibrahim

00:04:48--> 00:04:51

Bian, a Google map and from people

00:04:53--> 00:04:57

so Manmohan Singh said you made a mistake, mistake the speech if you made a mistake.

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

Why? He said, Well, I was aware they're not great.

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

And you know, younger boy kind of dismissed him. And he was insistent, he said, if you go and check your notes, you will see, he went and checked his notes.

00:05:16--> 00:05:21

And he realized that he did not avoid a movie

00:05:22--> 00:05:29

did not drink from Ibrahim. So he thought maybe just the flu. So he said, Okay, tell me who did it right from

00:05:31--> 00:05:33

that entire chain of transmission.

00:05:34--> 00:05:48

They asked Mr. mahadi, when he mentioned this incident many years later, he said, How old were you? He said, I was 11 811 years old when this incident took place.

00:05:49--> 00:06:08

While he was still a child, he memorized 17,000 variations 70,000 variations will go with the chain of transmission. Nowadays, you know, giant led to huge aerations and it's a good style at this time.

00:06:10--> 00:06:13

It's true, you look at the state. Today,

00:06:17--> 00:06:20

you see somebody starts practicing in English

00:06:22--> 00:06:35

regions about where to put the hands away, not to put the hand to join the feet, not to join the feet. And all of a sudden, you know, everybody looks up to him, and he starts thinking I need something special.

00:06:38--> 00:06:41

He thinks that means something special at

00:06:42--> 00:07:03

that time, you had 70,000 durations, and you had people who are humble for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala as Malignaggi who loves it. And if you really seek knowledge for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala it brings humbleness and good knowledge, if you're seeking it knowledge does not bring humbleness of you, then you need to check what you're seeking and why you're seeking it.

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

So 70,000 gration with a chain of transmission by the age of 60.

00:07:17--> 00:07:22

He had memorized the books of having books of a doula.

00:07:24--> 00:07:24

And then

00:07:25--> 00:07:34

by the age of 16, that Rachel mentioned that he went to pass a law and he was studying with the other students while he was at basalt.

00:07:37--> 00:07:39

And he will not write that

00:07:40--> 00:07:46

in Austin, when I come, you know, one of my students have discipline. I know I read this.

00:07:49--> 00:07:54

And he would like to think so the other students we had to say to the wasting time

00:07:55--> 00:07:57

he comes in here, it doesn't apply.

00:07:59--> 00:08:06

So what they are speaking amongst the who bring the topic up to Sunday went to Mambo Hari, Allah and they said,

00:08:08--> 00:08:17

you know, I'm not you wasting your time, you never know right. And the same audio Kamala said to the bring your notes bring your notes.

00:08:19--> 00:08:26

They say that they had gathered, how many iterations 15,000 separations

00:08:27--> 00:08:30

15,000 regions

00:08:31--> 00:08:46

and Mr. Bahari read through every single one with the chain of transmission on the top of his head, the top of his head and he was still a young boy.

00:08:47--> 00:08:54

And this is why I tell my students you know, who don't take notes I said, either you're in a mumble party or you're wasting your time

00:08:56--> 00:08:58

wasting their time. But anyway,

00:09:17--> 00:09:18

one of the reasons What is

00:09:25--> 00:09:35

he What did he say? He said look, this is not you know, what you attained in the university or high school? This is a slightly college.

00:09:38--> 00:09:39

How about

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

and this is why a great way to progress a little while it was observed

00:09:47--> 00:09:49

that the three people who will be two

00:09:51--> 00:09:53

gentlemen, what are they?

00:09:55--> 00:09:56

What are those three things

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

the first person is a martyr.

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

Allow me to ask him. He said what would? What did you do with the strength? And the life I gave, he would say your love, I got out martyred for your sake, for your sake.

00:10:12--> 00:10:13

The second is a scholar

00:10:16--> 00:10:25

allowed us to what did you do with Elvis in the eyes This is I sprayed a party and disseminated the knowledge that you bestowed upon me and that you granted me.

00:10:26--> 00:10:28

And the third person is a person

00:10:30--> 00:10:49

who is of great wealth. Allah has given him the dunya you know, most of the people go astray because of the dunya. They will tell you know, I built a machine. I did this, and I did that the wealth that you gave, to all three of you did it, you know, so people say to say your brain, you're the man.

00:10:52--> 00:11:20

You did it, because some people that was Cola, how knowledgeable he is. He spent the depth of the night you know, memorizing arguments, reading books. So tomorrow, you can go and argue with people. You can go to university and college or steal them on the street corner of your question, now have a debate. This city hall, wah wah, and you've got your wine at the yard now is Tom Tom,

00:11:23--> 00:11:23

the man of

00:11:26--> 00:11:26

the wealth.

00:11:28--> 00:11:41

See, if you look at these three things, illustration is amazing. The most, the most, the greatest sacrifice that a person could give the ultimate sacrifice in your life. But your life is

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

the most purest of words are the words of mine is also

00:11:49--> 00:11:53

known words are so pure that the words of the lines of soup.

00:11:54--> 00:11:57

But you're quoting a line is also where it takes you to

00:11:59--> 00:12:10

the vast majority of people who lose their way to allies because of the dunya. This man Spencer, apparently the powerful law, but it took him into the fight

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

took him into the wild.

00:12:14--> 00:12:22

This is why it's important, you know, people who are seekers of knowledge, no matter what level you will, if you're reading a book, you're reading it for the sake of Allah, Allah.

00:12:23--> 00:12:37

You know, that book makes a change in you, that has an impact on the heart. And if you're only So, reason is so because you know, either prove a fact to people and so Pamela Allah is watching an

00:12:41--> 00:12:47

episode of our party with his prodigious memory, when he went to the races mentioned that Rama

00:12:49--> 00:12:50

Hari memory is great.

00:12:52--> 00:12:59

So, what they did is that they gathered and they gave narrations to the youngsters.

00:13:01--> 00:13:29

So 10 durations were given to 10 different people. And what they did is that they took that was made of two things one is what is the muffler and one is the second one is the chain of transmission and one is the text. So what they did is that they do the chain of transmission from this duration, and they attach it to another direction, and it took a chain of transmission from this and attach it to another as it mixed all over.

00:13:30--> 00:13:32

So the people came

00:13:34--> 00:13:37

and they stood in front of as many people gather them.

00:13:39--> 00:13:40

And the first person

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

and the first person.

00:13:48--> 00:13:54

So the first person, hate generations, and be married to these generations.

00:13:56--> 00:14:09

And Mr. Bahari goes never heard of iteration. second iteration, never heard of iteration. Third variation, never heard of emerging regions. And he doesn't know any of them. Any of them. Love

00:14:10--> 00:14:18

Federation. So the people are looking to be their mom and be remote, meaningful, happy, a mom and daddy. So the next

00:14:19--> 00:14:23

generation generation doesn't know any of them.

00:14:25--> 00:14:59

That person generations. So I don't recognize any of these generations. But then breaking the chain of transmission with a heavy third person 100 durations. And this is met with a mom and daddy. And the people started saying you know what? We know what are these leaders? He says, You know me honey, but this was the humility of Allah. And my mother. You know, in my monitor, a group of people came to my mother from Spain. And they asked him our money question in my mind is, I don't know. Another one. I don't know and they might look at my money.

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

come from Spain 100 What am I gonna tell the people of Spain that I came to the amount of

00:15:08--> 00:15:21

the Malmo Medina, and he didn't know these questions, is it hell Don't tell him that Moloch didn't know. Monique didn't know. So a husband durations underrated, and he doesn't know what

00:15:22--> 00:15:49

the people that could have understood for the chain of transmission had been mixed. But the general public vote, you know, this guy is annoying is that we don't want to meet us. And then Mr. Mohali made it worse would stand up. And he said, I don't recognize the chain of transmission that generated in the honey, but I've heard it with this chain of transmission. So in both the right chain of transmission, and then the right nourish.

00:15:51--> 00:15:57

And Firstly, before he did this, he quoted to him the wrong one that he reiterated

00:15:58--> 00:16:12

and the entire 100 he bought the right trend chain of transmission and with the right duration, and he also founded the duration that that person voted. So if Mahajan was colonial law says is that it's not

00:16:14--> 00:16:35

it's not amazing, the amount Bokhari managed to put the chain of transmission in the right place. The amazing thing is that he managed to read read, quote, the duration that that person rated, although you only heard it once, you've only heard it once. Baby medic to recoated when he went to some

00:16:37--> 00:17:04

server, and look at the speed of that time, what might have been of this time, the multi scene of that time view hundreds of 1000s of iterations, Mr. Bahari himself sees you know, I knew 100,000 ID and I had memorized 200,000 for each ad. Why would you memorize or at least you would know the difference soon as you heard in racing, you know.

00:17:06--> 00:17:11

So you went to silver 400 of the top four have been

00:17:13--> 00:17:27

gathered to test them out to him all 400 of them. And for seven days, they've tested them every single duration. They quoted Mr. behati life. In the end, it's like

00:17:29--> 00:17:33

every single one to see this complete sacrifice.

00:17:34--> 00:17:36

This comes with sacrifice.

00:17:38--> 00:18:03

A sacrifice Okay, travels. He went from one place to the other well, as opposed to the other. It wasn't like you know, you jumped on the CIA or the British Airways or Saudi airlines and you went to study you will travel for months. He mentioned one day he went out to seek knowledge and provisions finished on the way or three days. only ate was grass.

00:18:05--> 00:18:12

For three days only April grass and holidays. So Pamela the access of knowledge is so easy.

00:18:13--> 00:18:43

It's so easy, but there's no desire for it. There's no birds for it. These collars traveled for months, and they would go to a person and they will keep deceiving a horse and they would leave his narration for months. Today Tz you have you have halaqaat in your local machine, you can actually do the anomia costs locally. We study we have to go to a dark room or ramadasa

00:18:44--> 00:18:57

where you have what have you know weather conditions were very nice because then in our local machines, it wasn't available. You will be given you will be given meat curry without any meat in it.

00:18:59--> 00:19:05

There was a.in the morning during the afternoon during the evening. We used to get the jab puffs.

00:19:08--> 00:19:13

Remember, we will get the jam puffs which by law had no Domino

00:19:15--> 00:19:16

Gemini

00:19:20--> 00:19:30

so as you see his setting him up a hottie and I'm taking you by Mambo honey. So how does it impact your life? How does it impact your life? How did you impact my life?

00:19:31--> 00:19:41

Makuhari a gradual three days he travels from one place to the other one place to the other person I eventually for myself. So how does it impact your life?

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

The open you take from the same you go home and has no impact on you. Will it have an impact on you? Will it create a finger inside you? That you need to seek knowledge? What's your long term goals? Somebody asked him a lot. What is the reason

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

How'd you get this prodigious memory? What is the secret? So Pamela, he said you know what he said he said high aspirations.

00:20:09--> 00:20:14

He said I never I try high aspiration, what's your aspirations?

00:20:15--> 00:20:27

And the state of the oma is in the state because of you know, our aspirations. We don't have any aspirations. The best we do is easy knowledge, dough piping, Alanna soleimani

00:20:28--> 00:20:31

and listened to the YouTube. Yeah.

00:20:33--> 00:21:03

We did our best to be doing something else is going to tell you don't delude yourself. Don't delude yourself. These are not golden Muslims have risen to the highest rated when you know the reason that we look into the life of our predecessors is to take something from it. But the problem is what's happened we just live our legacy. That's all we do. We listen we talk to my mama hanifa Imam Malik, Mr. mojari Muslim.

00:21:05--> 00:21:08

But what changes I'm making a lot of changes.

00:21:09--> 00:21:17

Is this a Mashallah wah wah, great people, but how does it impact online? Because you know what this movie was on the Day of Judgment.

00:21:18--> 00:21:19

And it's one

00:21:20--> 00:21:33

of the things is that take something away have a long term goal. You have long term goals. For the year you have long term goals. And the problem is the last one said no candidate in other words, the argument

00:21:35--> 00:21:41

goes, you know, you got to shop for three you work, good job, you want promotion, but what about you?

00:21:43--> 00:21:45

What's your go to? You're not here.

00:21:47--> 00:21:58

Because see, the best way of spending your life is in a manner which actually outlived your life, live, you do something you leave something behind you.

00:21:59--> 00:22:06

And in the standard narrative, we call this do you teach somebody Mashallah Malala is doing here?

00:22:07--> 00:22:09

Joy, and many others.

00:22:11--> 00:22:25

Teaching, you know, your erector Institute, you change people's life, you help with your team? This is what was our long term goal for dunya. We have long term goals for Dean we have to go all

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

the

00:22:29--> 00:22:31

time is that I've only started with 11.

00:22:47--> 00:22:49

Okay, okay, martial law.

00:22:58--> 00:22:59

This was a sacrifice,

00:23:02--> 00:23:05

to sacrifice. You know, one of the students

00:23:07--> 00:23:20

that I happen to spend at night in the same room as the amount of money one night, he says, in one night, one night, Mr. Bahari woke up at times, he remembered something.

00:23:21--> 00:23:47

At the time, he got up, he didn't switch the lights on. He lit the lantern. He took out his books, he took up the ink, and he went to sleep again. And then he remembered something and he woke up again 18 times in one night. This is why you have acceptance in his book for these people will people will close the love

00:23:48--> 00:23:50

and the connection we have lost

00:23:51--> 00:23:55

a lot of love to shoot an arrow art, he loved it.

00:23:56--> 00:24:13

If they mentioned that only twice in his life, did he miss miss the target? Twice? A times you wouldn't get to see but other times I'll just briefly mention it. He wouldn't because they would take me by name plate by just in case I have to go and fight.

00:24:15--> 00:24:18

But look at his book. How was his book compile?

00:24:20--> 00:24:41

acceptance was because there were people and how Obama his book was compiled, you know, in a manner that I love every single variation that he took. He says that I need new 600,000 600,000.

00:24:43--> 00:24:52

And out of out of those 600,000 and those 600,001 600,000 they need a mother. He knew the senate need to change.

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

He said out of those 600,000 so he ID I chose what I chose. You mentioned I left out

00:25:00--> 00:25:02

More than I actually compile

00:25:03--> 00:25:16

600,000 honey, every single time, he would take an ID, he would do Whoo. Or he would have a bomb, he would break off and then he would do.

00:25:19--> 00:25:21

This is why you have the acceptance of this book.

00:25:22--> 00:25:29

Omar has accepted this book, it has over 130 commentaries to it

00:25:30--> 00:25:34

116 years it took him to write the book.

00:25:36--> 00:25:46

And he showed it to break when he showed it to him, I had seen it and he had seen it. And many others have seen the work that he had compiled

00:25:49--> 00:26:01

6000 regions out of the 600,000 regions, he gathers this book and this is the this is the sacrifice behind it. Sometimes we pick up a body

00:26:05--> 00:26:09

what was the sacrifice with your body? What did a month

00:26:10--> 00:26:16

ago? What would the trunk you know today? So Pamela we speak about mobile, how to use it? Okay, how do

00:26:17--> 00:26:18

you know the difficulties I

00:26:19--> 00:26:30

went through, he would chase number one city out of the Tech City out to the next city. You know, I don't have time, but you know that there was an issue at that time between

00:26:31--> 00:26:36

the lights about the creative speech of a lot of the creative speech of Los

00:26:38--> 00:26:43

Angeles I had a great period you had the motors, the lights and one side on the other side.

00:26:46--> 00:27:14

But this came down. So, generally what happens Another is that people find it very difficult to have a balanced opinion this is generally man's nature, they react to the opposite. So instead of having a balanced opinion, so, you see something wrong instead of having a balanced opinion, you go to the other extreme and you will see this no more than you see in in in the religious people.

00:27:16--> 00:27:36

So there was an issue among among a lot of people to support who was you know, a place where there were many scholars the hammer the nail buffer de la la and the narrations mentioned the Mambo party came to Mesa that they like to do

00:27:37--> 00:28:06

and how did they get here who self said everybody go out to meet him Uncle Holly, I will go out and meet Mr. McCarty, Mr. Muslim, who was a student of mumbo jumbo law with with with Mr. Mohali on that occasion, he said never had that they suppose you know, occasion like that occasion. Never, never witnessed. Literally every scholar came out to greet demand Macario law

00:28:08--> 00:28:42

and said to the people, it's a big problem, because they look man equal to mentality, as far as the EDA is concerned, nobody asked me that issue because maybe you might have slightly different slight difference than us. But this is what happened. They mammootty came, you can imagine 1000s of people went to beat him and when he started his business, you know, the machine was full. And then there was one you know, you always get the one or two the Fibonacci numbers. Now they always there. So they asked him about the pronounciation

00:28:43--> 00:28:50

pronunciation of if you pronounce the four hours, if you attend is a creative, creative.

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

And

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

the last day it

00:28:57--> 00:29:08

is the uncreated speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala and our actions are create That's what he said he didn't say that loving, he said actions created.

00:29:09--> 00:29:11

So they said look, we say that

00:29:13--> 00:29:14

it creates created

00:29:16--> 00:29:25

after the speech is created, and all of a sudden, the dispute took place. And then the people have basic movement against

00:29:27--> 00:29:33

to the degree that even there were everybody was stopped. Can you imagine?

00:29:35--> 00:29:40

Can you imagine? People were prevented from sitting in this gallery. You know what they said? Look, the statement

00:29:42--> 00:29:43

is a deviant.

00:29:44--> 00:29:50

deviant. You constantly don't know the difference between your head and your toe. You talk about devious.

00:29:52--> 00:29:53

Could you listen to

00:29:56--> 00:29:58

00:30:00--> 00:30:08

Unity. This is history. You are the first people in our country. These things have been around a long time ago.

00:30:09--> 00:30:17

It is your father, the son of those who are actually deviant. And that's why your other people, even

00:30:18--> 00:30:20

though they said is a devious dose

00:30:23--> 00:30:41

to the degree that he felt that his life was in danger he left there, he went to Pokhara Mahmoud Ali had been chased out three times. They went to Pokhara his own city. And then he started teaching in the house. So the Hakeem the governor that makes it

00:30:43--> 00:30:49

00:30:51--> 00:31:03

He said no. He said I will not displace knowledge that I come to the doors of the leaders and teach them if they are interested in seeking then they come early for me.

00:31:05--> 00:31:07

He was chased out of Bihar.

00:31:08--> 00:31:11

Then the people of Salman Khan said someone can come to us.

00:31:13--> 00:31:20

So once he was going to some of the people who have some are concerned, you know how sad is a deviant and the others have said we want him to come.

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

And so Pamela Can you imagine my body now? In no way you can go to your GP you can go to someone who is living in a little village and I'll finish here
