He is the
founder and principal of a super Institute.
He myrcella ready tirelessly goes up and down the country.
And he's for
the character and life of man.
Hello Linda hillbillies. alameen wa salatu salam ala ZD mursaleen Muhammad while I heard he was hiding the woman to be able to be shown in a video movie, and my mother
spective brothers, sisters salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
Mom, Haytham he has related and much more life upon the authority of a blender Masuda Leila and hope
that Allah Subhana Allah tala looked into the hearts of the entirety of humanity.
And he found my heart to be the best. And thus he entrusted me with this message.
Then he looked in the hearts of the rest of humanity.
And he found the hearts of my Sahaba to be the best.
And he made them my aides and my ministers.
Now we need to ask ourselves a question. Why was it so important for Allah
to ensure that these people's heart was so pure?
And the reason for this was that allow us to give these people a responsibility.
And that responsibility was to carry this message. Because Allah is pure, this dangerous pill and hence those who carry this message have to be pure. And this is why Allah throughout centuries have chosen pure people to carry this Deen when Allah says in
decorah we're in Allahu la lune we are the ones who have revealed that the Quran and the feminine the entire Sharia comes into this, that we are the ones who have revealed it, and we shall look after it. One of the ways this is manifested is that allows Pamela farla chooses men and women to protect this Deen. He chooses,
as a prophet sallallahu wasallam said
are the heirs of the MBR. They are the inheritors of the MBR. And what do they inherit, they inherit this
transmission of this. And one of the few people that lost panels on I chose was no other than Mr. Abu hanifa Rahim Allah. His father was they were father. And he was a Persian descent.
And my father was a small child, he was born.
And I've you know, the amount of money that the waffle burger for him and for his progeny.
And he was also very pious disposition. The Nation mentioned one day he was doing Google by St. By stream, and an apple came down the stream.
And he picked up the apple and he ate it.
And then later on is fat and bread came out. And he thought maybe because the apple belonged to somebody else, and he ate it, they might have been wrong. So what he did, he walked upstream to find an apple tree, and he found an apple tree.
And he found the owner of that land, and he went to the owner of the land and he said I want to pay for the apple.
And this owner of his land was amazed by the look of this young man. And he said Listen, I won't accept a deal, I suppose and didn't have even more than this.
Role Will you accept
is that your redemption is that you marry my daughter
and evaluate him
His daughter in law says
about the pure men for the pure women.
And from this pure marriage came forth. And Mama,
the mom of the east and the west of Dubai memovox says, I saw a moment ago halifa in the home and he was giving fatwas and by Allah they were he was giving fatwa to people, the east and the west,
the people of the east and the west, he was the mom of the rich and the poor. He was the mom of the scholars and the kings. I mean, hundreds and 1000s of scholars have belonged to the flick of Abraham, Abu hanifa. Many of them will have his own hobbies, they knew 100,000 heavies with the chain of transmission of by heart, and whose fit they belong to.
They belong to the thick of
a Mala. And you know, today you have guys coming to you. Well, I had a guy come to me, and he was my friend from school. And he goes to me, you know, I need to ask you a question. Is it true that amount of money for only new 17
you're fortunate he only knew 17 sayaji. And on the basis of those empty societies, they ruled for 1000 years, over the half of the Muslim world, as if he knew 100 say haddish, you guys would have never got to look in.
He was there in love of the scholars. And he was a mom of the kings. He was a mom of billions of people.
Billions of people belong to the flick of a memorial and he brought him a lot. As a poet says, he said
to me, my name
is Abu hanifa. He's a, he's like a lighthouse.
He's like the lighthouse. He lit up every corner of the world
was suspended by the
hundreds and 1000s of miles away. The Persians would have sought this knowledge, because this was their zeal. This was a general place of the Persians, out of all the Persians, whose knowledge benefited the
most more than the knowledge of Abu hanifa Rahim Allah,
whose knowledge there was a Muslim is saying that the Persians are phasing in their ability to seek knowledge. And out of all these amazing people who was the most knowledgeable and the most amazing, it was unbelievable honey for him. Allah
has mentioned that he memorized the Koran at a very young age. And then he seems that he went into business with his father with a silk trader when he was walking past, and the mom of Hoover Shabi saw him.
And he thought he was one of his students. So he called him and then they understood that he made a mistake. But he said to Mr. Baba hanifa, who was a child at the time, he said, Where are you going? And he said, I'm going to the marketplace. So do you attend the helicopter and it's a very rarely.
We said, don't be heedless, attend the halaqa of the aroma, for I see in you intelligence, alertness. And above all, he won't have a law says that his words have permeated my heart. And I left the marketplace. And I began to seek knowledge. And the first knowledge that he sought was a sudo D. And this was for the protection of this D. It wasn't like many people say, you know, he overindulgent kalaam.
He lived in Vancouver was a very dynamic place. Many of the Divas six were in Google. And every day there was a new, deviant, sick, and lovable honey was our neighbor was a Shiva. And this year had two donkeys and now he named one aboobaker and he named the other one.
And what happened is one day that is don't keep kicked him, and it killed him.
And they don't remember more. Have you ever
go and see I can guarantee you the donkey that kicked him until he was the one that he named.
Me became a master in the science he mentioned himself more than
20 times, he went to Missouri to debate and learn the science until none of the even six would debate with him. The further he or the jabariya, the water in the water, the lies, the sheer number would debate with him.
And he himself says that whenever I would go, people would say this is where they will point the finger at me, and they say, this is the man. Nobody can debate with it when the atheist came to Kufa, who did the governor of Kufa look for, he loves
to debate with him, because he was a man who would rise to the challenge. The problem today is that we don't have any of us.
We don't have anybody who can challenge all the deviant, not just Islamic. But all other manly philosophies. We don't have this.
And the governor arrange this debate, and 1000s of people were there.
And the atheist is there and there's no sign of a mama or honey book. So they started saying, you know, he's bottled it. You're gonna turn up.
And after a very long time, Mr. Mobile turned up.
And he said, Why are you so late for what kind of Muslim Are you are given a time? Why do you come on time?
He said, I'm a Pakistani Muslim.
apologize. But I have an excuse. A valid excuse between my house and this place is a river. And what happened is when I reached the river, there was no vote. So waiting for a very long time, no votes, and then almost everyone who I see a tree falls down all by itself.
It cuts up into
the boat. It comes to me I jumped in it and all by itself, it takes me across
the water load of Hocus Pocus.
Game over, debate finished. Is that what do you mean debate finish? The debate hasn't even started.
law said a boat cannot come into being without a creator and the maker How do you think the heavens and the earth the seas and the trees, the birds and the bees came into being without a creator. And this was
by the age of 20. In this science, Mr. Mobile hanifa had a halaqa in the largest Masjid in Kufa.
And one day a woman came to him and asked him a Muslim.
And he didn't know the answer
was the Holocaust was a famous
And he said, going off hammock and come back and tell me what he said to you. So she went to Hamas. And Hamas gave her the answer.
And then she came back and told him and he will realize that there was a shortcoming in his knowledge that he had in Google's himself just in one knowledge. So the Verizon eventually he stood up, he picked up his shoes, and he took him to the Holocaust hammock, and he sat next to him. And until hammar, did not pass away. And when I sat by his feet learning this room, eventually, Never did I pray Salah, but I made the wall for Hamas when they dwell for my parents, and use of those a step further.
But I made for my teacher,
before I made for my parents, and this was destiny manifesting itself
because he was destined to codify and beautiful the student.
Upon occasion, it was a dream, that he didn't have the dream of the prophets of Allah.
And then find the bones of the bodies of muscles scattered, and he puts them in order. And he woke up.
And he said,
to ethnicity in the face, it was interpreter, dreams, and he said, Don't ask him. And if they said he said, You know the person who saw this dream, he is the one who will unify and codify and uniform, the signal the prophets of Allah.
And as long as Hammad Lu
was set by him, died in 120.
That means by him
Mr. Abu hanifa was 14 years old until the age of 14.
If I didn't have his own halaqa
It wasn't like today. You know you study at
Jamia and you come back.
People spinning. Their stories mentioned that I had 4000 teachers
and the rest were
amazing. Some scholars even had more than this, because I lived in Uber. Now Hoover in the time of anybody alive.
You had 1500 Sahaba and
eminent scholars, like Massoud, alive,
sad and many, many more of the eminent Sahaba. They actually lived in Kufa, Obama who lived for six days.
And according to the strongest opinion, he did an AR 15.
So he would mean they would go for HUD, and they would seek knowledge and he would teach and he would seek knowledge.
And then after her mother passed away, he
started this helicopter in Kufa
a very short time, his helicopter became the largest in Kufa. There was no Ufa, which was as big as it
seems when I came to poof, I asked the people of foofa, who is the greatest Rookie of Kufa, they said Abu hanifa, I said, Who is the greatest
man who stays away from the dunya? Suppose, there is an Abu hanifa
I was walking one day with Obama. And there was a man coming. And when he saw him, I believe I took the other path. And I
called him and said, Why did you take it apart when you saw me? He said, you know, Mom, you know, I owe you 10,000.
And I will come across hard times.
And I'm about to see you.
And have you ever said as it comes to this, that you see me and you take another path is a bear witness if I'm giving you
a peek mentioned on that occasion, I realized that this man
was very rich. But he spent everything in the fog of Allah until the nation mentioned that his students entered his house. And it was only one match.
And then later on in life who made the money again?
When I came to LA, I asked the people
who is the person of the greatest, they said it was Mr. Mobile.
And this is why
he didn't take them lightly. He said.
He says I stayed with him for five years. And every time he was asked a question, he would sweat like a river.
He had an entire shoot of 40 of his greatest students. And they will sometimes deliberate or one of us law for entire month. And his students mentioned that sometimes we couldn't reach a conclusion.
And he would stand up. And he would say maybe it's because of my own sins, that we can't reach a conclusion.
And he would do, he would pray to God, and he was crying. He would do
the worship of the 200 because they say that there was not a place in the 200 where his kids had not fallen out of the fear of love. And he was a student.
And when he began to cry, and he said the truth is that the likes of Emma who
don't have many things to do.
And this is why I am more comfortable with the mistakes of the fellow. Then there is the heart of my contemporaries
because of this taqwa
Somebody complained to him.
He makes a lot of mistakes. And we'll
him a lot.
And he said, and this is for those who say, you know, we already follow one man, we don't follow one man.
We follow 100,000 scholars, many have
And he said, How can I make mistakes when he has students?
And nybridge people like
in a student's life
a student, like a woman number one is that how can a man like this make mistakes?
Every person make mistakes, but we don't follow one person. And this is why I say to those who criticize our school, I say well, first up said to Jerry, he said, how was I?
my forefathers, these are my scholars with me your scholars who equal
to equal because you don't have anything which compares with them.
great mom. But his salon was weak.
I was with
him and he didn't know how to press a lot, how some futility.
and you are taking food out of the mouths. So this is a lack of humility.
come as mentions, he says that one day we prayed Salah with a mama for honey book.
And then he finished the sutra. And obviously at the latter part of the sutra.
If a person doesn't have good, he will see it and if the person is evil, he will see it in the hereafter. And he says after so long
sat down and he began to contemplate?
Me began to think because I didn't want to disturb it.
said I didn't want to disturb him.
So he said, I left him. He said I came back out of time.
I was sitting in the very same place I left him.
And he was holding his bed and he was crying, and his tears are coming down his face. And he was saying
who won't take me into reckoning for
equal pay what I've done
on the Day of Judgment.
He mentioned that
I used to play for long portions of the night, and he would cry in front of a lot. Sometimes all night, he would recite one verse.
The famous face, and I sat with him.
And I looked at his face, and he says I saw the fear of alive his face.
I saw the fear of online his face. And it was based on these qualities that Allah accepted him to be a mom of the Atlas on mobile Gemma for the last 1300 G's. He was regarded as a mom in his own time. And it's something I want to speak about today, which sometimes we overlook on the life of Mama. And that was his bravery and the steadfastness.
He was regarded as the mom of his time.
lived under the Americans for 52 years and under the emphasize for 18 years.
they weren't very they were very Arab centric, and they weren't very just besides the short portion of the lemon
disease, the rest they weren't very just.
But they regarded Imam Abu hanifa as the Imam of his time, the governor of Kufa in the hubiera.
Let me choose.
He chose people like Brahma and believe that to be the judges of Kufa, and on top of them, he wanted the main judge to be
a mahalo and
refuse to take the post. And these scholars adminship, Rama
of the Sahar came to the motherboard.
And they said, Oh, don't throw yourself into destruction. Take the post. But we were compelled to take the pose and we took it. And this was the age the Hagia hamdulillah. And immovable honey was there, I swear by Allah, I would not take the post.
Even if it wasn't me to fix the door on the washing machine, I wouldn't even do that for them. And you want me to put my stamp to override the beheading of some innocent man.
I will not take it,
though, who was the governor of fufa took an oath that Mr. Evil would take it. And if anybody took an oath that he would, he wouldn't take it. And he said, the thing is easier for me than that I come in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala and change as a person.
I've taken an oath,
who said, compete with my oath.
And he's some of them have already lever for 15 days, he kept him in prison. And they tried to convince him they couldn't convince him. And then he brought him to his court. And he said,
You will take the post, I swear by a lump. And if you don't take the post, I swear by a lie would have you rip in your head until you die. And your mama boy had even said
he said Go ahead. You can only kill me What?
My mom wasn't just a fucking it wasn't just
it wasn't just
he was a
giant that the greatest geologist you can do if you speak words of truth in front of a piratical ruler. And this is why
I became enraged. And he told me July is a wisdom on his head. And he whipped him once or twice.
I swear by Allah, a day will come that alone will displace you like you are described to me today.
might have thought that was displeased for him at that time.
But I swear by luck in
that respect, because he stood up for what he believed for them. He stood up for what he believed in
and his words
and everything ever told me July to stop
will be whipped every day. But the only time he cried was when he was on his head because it made a mark upon his face.
And he said
I fear that when my mother sees these marks, it will pay
and this is why I'm crying. It was a grind for himself.
And this was
they took over Kufa
very interesting people, they like to put a foot off the field on everybody. Anybody disagreed with them. They were caucus. Anybody. Anybody committed a major sin, they work office. They didn't even
they did any believes in arbitration. when there isn't hokum is only for Allah, and they put a photo on it even
though when they took over Koopa one of the first people that they dragged in was immoveable honey.
And they said to your mom of one, anybody said, Oh, they said, this is the shear hokku for
all forms of since all forms of Kufa
so they let him go, he realized that he was actually doing dobot from their form of beliefs
into the machine.
And we realized that
was from our beliefs, and the motherboard. He said,
you're keen on that? Or is it suspicious?
dark, it will face who was the leader of the quad, he said, it's unreasonable doubt, Mr. bouhanni person that Allah says in the past in Islam, that indeed some suspicions are a simple according to your own principle, you are committed a major sin, and therefore you are committed.
So the heartbeat over and
over, and evolvable and he was said, from what he said, from arbitration, you believe that anyone
who was committed
he was, are you ready to debate with me? Or will you kill me, as a hawk said, I will debate with you.
I didn't know what he was getting himself into.
Couldn't do with somebody in Kufa,
they would call him Abu hanifa, there was a person who used to be allied with Jews.
And try to speak to him, the more they spoke to him, the more adamant he got. So one day, I went to him and said to him,
I have a really good partner for your daughter
in the hospital for our high lineage very rich. He spends in the profitable law, he plays all my celebrity cries out to the field.
Such a man, I would be happy with some of these qualities. But he said only one problem is a book said he's a Jew.
is a walk on a man Do you think I am, I would give my daughter to you.
you wouldn't give me your daughter to a Jew, but the province of Milan, it was given to the daughters to
pass away. If I had another daughter, I would give it to a man.
And the man understood the error of his way. And he did.
So the hawk said, I'm ready to debate you say he wasn't okay. What if we disagree?
He said, when you choose a person
chose one of his own companions.
And he said, You sit down and he's the hawk. Are you happy with him? Being the judge? And the hawk said yes.
And he was said, you know, the Hawk, according to your own principle, you have committed people, you have allowed arbitration. So again, the Hulk had to do.
And you know what the overproof was very, very interesting. When they took over
that because they believed anybody who disagreed with every bone, their blood was hella,
the blood was hot. So they would, and the women were held on. And they would go around killing Muslims. And everybody went to the safety of their homes. Even the vast majority of the scholars
came out and he stood in front of the hawk. And he said, Oh, the Hawk, tell me why are you killing the Muslims? Is it because they have commit there because
he's telling me something to hook with it warm? Is this belief?
What they bought on this belief? Or did they adopt it later? Is it No, they were always Born on these beliefs is that if that's the case, then according to you, they were never Muslims in the first place.
And the heart began to think and the house she sought, and Mr. Banerjee says, you know, the entirety of Kufa are the slaves of Imam Abu hanifa because he slaves saved their necks. He saved their life. So what if never VEDA finally released him Abu hanifa Rahmatullah la Mr. Abu hanifa migrated to Mecca for six years he lived in Mecca.
After six years when the episodes toppled the amaze, Mr. Mobile Evo came back into Kufa
And this is where he inaugurated to shooter of 40 of his brightest students. And they were deliberate on our Musleh and they would discuss a muscle up. And only when they were happy, would they give the fatwa and while we were happy about him, Allah had 800 students approximately, share my Moodle Hussam has mentioned, please is one of these names of the places where we students came from. Never heard of,
of the Medina, Abdullah mentioned that one day I saw my father, he was debating with a guy in the huddle.
He was debating with his man in the heart of the matter like a foreigner. And my father was very impressed by this man's knowledge. And he asked him, Where have you come from?
And he said, I have come from Tangier, which was the first place where Islam had reached at that time.
And he said, Where did you obtain this knowledge from? He said, from the books of Mr. Mobile hanifa is that we have the books of Mr. Pollack and models. But generally the footwork is given on the first one of Mr. Abu hanifa. And his wife,
the famous, I didn't think two things would actually even pass the borders of fufa. One was the recitation of Hamza. And the second was the sick of Imam Abu hanifa. But it reads all corners of the world's
all corners, and initially,
of the episodes had a very good relationship with him, or hanifa. And for a while, actually worked with him.
And they regarded him as the mom of his time. Again, the episodes
that regarding the mama, mama time
when he said the governor Cooper introduced a mama boy honey for two.
What did he say? He said, To me, this is the greatest scholar of our time. And Abu
Have you studied? Who have you studied from?
above or below? Have you ever said I studied from those who transmitted the knowledge of Omoro
as I study from those who transmitted the knowledge
of the lightning, a bus and a black Nima spoon and a blue lightning over and above that, then you are safe in your knowledge?
Whenever Jaffer and his wife had a dispute,
and he asked his wife, who do you want to arbitrate? Who did she say? She said?
And they went
and said, What is it? How many wives can a man have? You know, they were disputing these long time ago. It's not just Neil.
He said, You got a full wife? Is that does anybody disagree with this?
And a mother would ever said no. Then he turned to his wife. I don't do I can afford a wife and a mother when he was at stopped there.
This is for those who are just in fear. And those who are clear that they cannot be just Allah say, what in history.
If you feel that you cannot be just in just one, and Abuja who was a mirror moment, he was shocked at the bravery of the moment.
He was shocked. And this is why when he had the pose of the greatest body, in the episode, Tinder, who did he wanted to give it to? He wanted to give it to him
was week one, they had made him
of the entirety of the kingdom.
Couldn't they find somebody else?
He offered him the post.
And Mr. Cleaver refused to take it
or refused to take it.
And our job we insisted at the moment, that I will not take the post, and he insisted, and if we look at the words of the Mamma
Mia, Mr. Lawson,
said, I will not take it. But if I was to take it, and a case was brought against you, by a law I will give a judgment against you even though you are below me. And if you want me to reset that statement, and you threaten to drown me in the Euphrates River, I will
Still not take that statement back. And he said, What do you think would be my statement if you force me to take the post,
and he insisted, is if you're going to take the post, and
I said, I'm not worthy to take the post, and he said, You're lying.
I told you a liar can't be a judge.
And this enraged, because this hurts him. It really hurts with these people, that ego.
So he started to use force. And he said, I swear by Allah, you will take this post. And he was it, this was a mirror for me. So you can see what kind of man and
this man was the most powerful man on the face of the earth.
Have you ever sat in front of him is I swear by Allah, I would not take them.
And I swear would not take them.
he was the governor of the Miramar mini
breaches, oh, he's got more wealth than you can pay them.
And the reason to mention
that because your
the whip, and he began to whip him up, and even with his own hands.
He was 17 years old at that time.
And then they flew him in prison.
He would be whipped.
They thought they could.
But they couldn't reach this result. Because this was a man who lived and die for the sake of Allah. And then they finally they poisoned him. And when he realized that he was dying,
he died in prison. And he went into such
a love give these people this code of honor to give of his words in the state of
Ohio, he he was the body of a moment for haniwa. And when he watched the video when
he saw his weak body because of the profused worship, and because of the beating, and he began to cry, and there was no
room. And then when we took him off Abu hanifa out,
and we were carrying him, only four or five people knew about his death.
And when we brought him out the people,
able bodied person attempted to janazah mama for
over 50,000 people
attended his janazah.
For 20 days, they were praying over his grave. And he made it clear that he shouldn't be buried in books out because he regarded it as yourself.
And Jaffer heard about this, and he came in as a What do you remember? He said, because he said he doesn't want to be
regarded as you said.
out and he said,
he said, who will save me from you?
I wouldn't say from you when you were alive,
did not say from you.
he came to the grave of your mama. And he was shortly after he passed away. And he said
he passed away.
You were there to finish shoes.
But after you pass away, there is no way you can fit your shoes.
Nobody who can fill your shoes. And somebody saw him
in a dream
in a dream, and he was in a very blissful state. And he asked him how did you attain this feat? And they're looking at this
because of those people who loved it and cursed me after I passed away
when a man came to
LA and he complained to my mom about this and he said
He said you know, your example is the example of a ramp
for locks his holes against a mounting
his holes will break but nothing will happen to the mountain. He said you are the RAM and avoid is the mount.
And the truth is that anybody who salon is a mom of who had Ava and I say one thing here.
This is not a direct attack on any one individual. This is a general statement regarding anybody who's salon this the sofa, sorry, he
said, one of the sides of the
matter of this Omar will curse the former.
The former, the truth is that those who are hanifa This is nothing besides elevate the status of Mr. Mobile however, Mr. Sharp he says, Why did Allah not stop? People cursing the Sahaba although the Sahaba were the official people to walk on his face of this earth to the MBR? And he says because Allah wanted to elevate their status even after their demise.
And the same thing applies to
him or her luck. That alone wanted to elevate the status of your mama What have you but he was to his demise.
And you know, what, honey, who was here today? What would it mama well, honey, if I had done
what would a mama would have done? You know, upon occasion, he was sitting in a van came to him and he said, You move today using this. He said, You innovator
and evolve over halifa said May Allah forgive you May Allah forgive me
is a good Allah knows.
That's the day since the day I have believed in Allah. I have never turned away from Allah.
I seek a love pardon. And I ask Allah to save me from his punishment. And when he reached the word punishment, that later mentioned, the mother will even burst out crying.
And this man, he saw the loss of imaam, Abu hanifa.
And he said, I seek your forgiveness.
I apologize. And
your apologies accepted.
But those scholars who slavery look at the word my whatever. So but those scholars who certainly they are sinful when a scholar slump slanders he has people following him. And his statements last for a very, very long time. And I request is
that the blind following of any mud hatch, any approach shouldn't blind us to the fact that we start cursing the seller or criticizing the seller? We should be better, we should be more clear.
And I say this. And I asked him,
I said, if you want to give it to me,
and you followed if they meet
with you for half an hour praising that they mean, and then for the next half an hour, would you mentioned the criticisms of all those who criticize many who literally took him on the periphery of, although not for a moment, do we accept this criticism?
Without defending him? But you didn't defend him? You wouldn't? You wouldn't.
So why pick on him?
Because he's a mom of a group of people who follow him.
This is fanatic. This is the
blind following. Once you give a talk on the life of ship of the war Hawk, and praise him for half an hour, and for the next half an hour criticize him and mention all those criticized without defending him. You wouldn't do it. So why do you do it the day mama but how do you? Why can't you be balanced?
You know, have your approach allow others to have their approach
allow others to have their approach. May Allah subhanaw taala make us amongst those who live and die for his sake may have lost my father elevate the status of the Mambo on our behalf. May Allah subhana wa tada keep us united in this dunya May Allah re unite us with the lives of Mr. Babu on the day of judgment and all the society and all the 14 months
may have lost my
office in general for those kind of alone.
It was a very inspirational talk.
