00:00:50-->00:01:04

I would like to welcome you all to the first halaqa in our series of halaqaat we will be coveringAmendment No is 40 Hadith and tonight's halaqa be delighted we will be taking the biography of Imamand now we and with the lights Allah deriving some lessons from his life.

00:01:05-->00:01:45

If you look at the luminaries of Islam, you'll notice particularly from the scholars, there's ahandful of scholars that pretty much every single Muslim household will know. So from them, you willhave Imam Abu hanifa Imam Malik Imam Shafi Imam, Ahmed, Imam, Al Bukhari, Mr. Muslim, these are likefrom the predecessors, and then you will see as you leave the generation of the predecessors, thenumber of scholars that the Muslim households are familiar with actually decrease. So then aftertheir time, we'll start to notice that it is only great luminaries, the likes of Jekyll, this timeof Nutini, I have no claim as a Hubby, a blue casier that these are the names that starts to get

00:01:45-->00:02:24

remembered. And from these great luminaries that is remembered and is notorious and well knownthroughout the Muslim households. Is that of Amendment No he, in fact, if you look at the books ofAmendment No we most of his books and Hadith are actually books that are relied upon up until thisday, meaning that since his death, no one has written new books in that field that have supersededthe books of the amendment knowing his book, The likes of Rio de Sala hain is a book that is inalmost every single machine and in every single household. The likes of imama know is what theHadith, it is a primer in every single Islamic school where the study Hadith everyone begins with

00:02:24-->00:03:08

it. Now the question arises, why are some scholars remembered and why are some scholars forgotten?Allah subhanaw taala he gives us a simple answer to this in sort of medium where Allah subhanawtaala tells us in the Medina M and wamego solidarity, say ajala Homura man with the that thosepeople who have a man and they do righteous deeds, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will place for thema special love. The Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that it is due to thesincerity of an individual's act, that Allah subhanho wa Taala causes a person to be left. Now Iwant you to think about this panel law, that the deeds that we do, not only does Allah subhanaw

00:03:08-->00:03:50

taala compensate for them in the afterlife that we get her senate and say yet in the era, but inthis world, an individual will become loved by the people. As soon as Allah subhanaw taala starts tolove him. And this individual, his key characteristic will be that of sincerity. He doesn't seek anyreward from the people. He doesn't seek any praise from the from the people notice the fear theblame of the blamers except the fear of Allah subhanaw taala and this individual, wherever he may bewhatever he may do, Allah subhanho wa Taala writes down a special love for him and the mama No, weare him Allah was one of these special individuals. Now let us firstly start off by discussing the

Nawawi

00:03:50-->00:04:11

name of Mr. manoli, the name of Mr. manoli. So in order to know his name was yahia abuser ofignoring Johansson ignore her scene. So his name was yahia shut off. If no Marie it wasn't 100% thiswas his complete name. And if anyone remembers that, by the end of the halaqa, we'll have a specialreward for you with the lights Allah, I'm not repeating it again.

00:04:12-->00:04:53

Now, there's nothing too particular about his career. You don't have any great story in his name.There's no no great luminaries of Islam, no great scholars, you know, no great poets or anything ofthat sort. He came from a very average lineage. And this is what makes his life so interesting thatyou'll find most scholars of the past. They had this natural encouragement in their houses. So maybetheir father was a scholar, their uncle was a scholar, grandfather was a scholar. We had thishousehold of knowledge. But then when it came to amendment know your Amala you notice that he comesfrom a very simple household that his family were mainly just merchants his main family mainly were

00:04:53-->00:04:58

just merchants now particularly focusing on his father shut off

00:05:00-->00:05:35

For those of you that remember our discussion on the mammal Bukhari, we mentioned that a mammalbucarest father played two important roles in his life, that the Father amount because he had twoimportant roles in the life of the body. Number one was the fact that he was a scholar of Hadith andencouraging environmental Bukhari to become a scholar of Hadith. And then the second was that whenthe father Emmanuel Bukhari was passing away, he said something very profound. He said that I canguarantee that in my world, there's not a single dinner or a single Dirham, which came from adubious source, that our dinner or their home Moscow country that there was any doubt about it, that

00:05:35-->00:06:17

it was from a helot source, he guarantees on his death. Now, interestingly enough, a moment No, hisfather had a similar, I guess, you know, motto in life, that he was extremely, extremely careful interms of where he would take his wealth from. And Amanda know his father, as a profession. He was avegetable salesman, he used to have a small shop with which he would sell fruits and vegetables. Andhe would make sure he was extremely diligent that he wouldn't cheat anyone not take any extra fromthem, nor would he give them any less than they were do. He was very meticulous about this. Now, thereason why I mentioned this is that in our day and age, you know, when we talk about parenting, this

00:06:17-->00:06:54

is something that we don't even talk about the concept of holiday risk, and the effect that it hason parenting itself. But if you notice the understanding of our predecessors, parenting was not justabout the physical Tobia that we give them in terms of, you know, telling them do this and don't dothat. What was also about what they fed them in terms of the halaal food and a lot of sustenance.And this is based upon the Hadith of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where hesaid that the believers were commanded just like the mursaleen what Allah subhanaw taala commandedthe monster and he commanded the prophets that all prophets eat from that which is halal, and that

00:06:54-->00:07:33

which is good. And then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam concludes this hadith bysaying that there will be an individual that will travel and in this travel he will get, you know,covered with dust, and he will be completely disheveled and broken down. Like meaning it is anextremely difficult journey, and it gets so difficult that he breaks down and he starts making duato Allah subhana wa Tada. However, his clothes are from Haram, his eating is from hot on hisdrinking is from Harlem, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam concludes this hadith bysaying, for now, use the javelina trick that From where will you know the answer come from this

00:07:33-->00:07:39

individual. And you'll notice that this and unless I know what Allah knows best, was a primary causein the moment knowing

00:07:41-->00:07:50

that the father took such extreme care of where his system this came from, that his children onlygot talent that Allah subhanho wa Taala took special care of him and only

00:07:51-->00:08:25

the cornea of Mr. manoli. The cornea of Amendment No, he was Abu Zakaria. Now the concept of thecornea is that an individual will take it upon themselves either by above something, or onsomething, usually indicating that they are the parent of this child, or if they have a child, theywill name this child with this name, or if something that they are famous from. So I want you guysto think of a Sahabi that had a cornea due to a child that he had. Can you think of a Sahabi thathad a cornea due to a child that he had?

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

Go ahead.

00:08:29-->00:08:43

I will have said you're referring to earlier the other one, excellent. So I will have said wasunable to be thought about your loved one. And I want you to think of a companion that had a corneadue to something that he was famous for. This was very easy.

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

a viable broker explain that.

00:08:50-->00:09:25

Okay, possible, but abracadabra is the more famous example of whatever the llamando is the morefamous example. So whereas the other one who was always seen with the kittens always taking care ofthe kittens. Now the question arises, taking your cornea. Is this something Islamic? Or is itsomething cultural? And this has been a valid difference of opinion amongst the scholars. In mymanolio Rahim Allah, he was of the opinion that not only is it something Islamic, but it is in fact,something encouraged. And if you go to one of his famous books of Hadith, and much more, hediscusses this in detail. And he says that there are individuals that had cuneus that were not

00:09:25-->00:09:58

befitting during the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And had it been something thatwas not encouraged the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wouldn't have replaced them.He would have just said that you know what keep you know your regular names, and there's no need fora new Konya for you. Yet the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave them new corneas.And that shows that these corneas are actually encouraged. And that is why Amendment No, even thoughhe did not have any children, because he never got married. He didn't have any children. He didn'tget married, yet he still took the title of Abu Zakaria. Now who can tell me briefly? Why would he

00:09:58-->00:10:00

remember? No, you're a military

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

The title of Abu Zakaria,

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

go ahead.

00:10:05-->00:10:45

Excellent. So you have the relationship between the two prophets. Yeah, he and zaccaria were fatherand son. And you'll notice that there's this general tradition that certain Konya, certain nameswill be affiliated with certain corneas. So for example, someone who is named Ali, he will be knownas someone who's, you know, yes, sir. He will be known as a bomber. And then similarly, over here,the corneas of Abu Zachary, in Abuja. They're interchangeable with Zachary. And yeah, so that is therelationship between the two. Now, an interesting thing that started taking place during this time,was that the scholars of Islam were given titles, you'll notice someone like even taymiyah he was

00:10:45-->00:11:24

called Taku. Dean, someone like him, he was called shamsudeen. Now Amendment No, Allah was given oneof the most grandiose titles anyone could ever be given. He was called mohiuddin, the one that gavelife to the religion. Now what's interesting over here is what Amano Rahim Allah says about thistitle Subhana, Allah melano he said about this title, that whoever calls me by this title, I willnot forgive them mean that on the Day of Judgment, I will hold them accountable for calling me thistitle. And in fact, if you look at this title, this title is only befitting for the prophets and theambia that they are the ones that truly give life to the religion. And the moment No, you are him

00:11:24-->00:12:04

Allah. Not only was he correcting, not accepting this title, but it was out of the humility that youwill come to see that Mr. manoli Rahim Allah head. Now what is sad, though, is that during ourtimes, we'll still find people who will refer to Mr. manoli as mohiuddin. Now, yes, he had thisgreat, you know, these characteristics of reviving Islam, especially the sciences of faith. Butremember, no formula made it very explicit, that anyone who calls me by this name, I will notforgive them for this. So this was the honorary title that he had. Now, as for the law Club ofAmerica, knowing the law club is a title that is added on to the name, this is usually based upon a

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

profession a person may have or maybe based upon where an individual is from. And this leads us intothe discussion in terms of where Amendment No, he was actually from. So Amendment No mo law was fromthe town of Noah, the town of Noah, and it has a an F at the end, Noah has an Aleph at the end. Andin actuality, the true pronounciation of nawawi is supposed to be unaware we, however, due to thedifficulty that is on the tongue, the scholars of language, they facilitated this and they startedto refer to him as unknowing. And he mama no Rahim Allah was born in the year 631 after hijra 631after Angela, which approximately in the Gregorian calendar is around 12 130 from the Gregorian

00:12:52-->00:13:32

calendar 12 130 from the Gregorian calendar. Now let's go directly into the life of a mom and knowyour Rahim Allah Himself. As a young child, Mr. manolio Rahim, Allah was known to be a very seriouschild, you'll notice the average 345 year old they love running around they love playing with toys.Mm hmm. No, you're a high mala was not like that at all. In fact, from my as a young child, he wasknown to be as a child that would often contemplate and just think so while the other boys arerunning around and playing a mama. No, Mama would just be sitting there and watching and observing.And there's a very interesting incident that maraca, she one of the historians from Noah Maris about

00:13:32-->00:14:08

a mama know him. He says it was this at this incident where a mama no yahama was at the age ofeight, that Allah subhanaw taala placed a special love for him in my heart. What was this incidentthat the other boys in the town? They were just running around and playing? Perhaps you know, youwere playing with a ball? And they tell you, you know, yeah, why don't you come and play with us?And he's like, No, I don't want to play yet. The young boys, you know, perhaps you're missing aperson on their teams. You know, it's like four against three, they need that extra person. They'relike, come play with us. Come play with us. Come play with us. And as viola, I want you to think

00:14:08-->00:14:45

about when was the last time you ever saw a child get angry, being invited to play? Like, honestly,it doesn't make sense. It's mind boggling. Any child that you tell him to come play, he'll be like,Sure, let's go play. But in our mind, no, we're like malo, and they kept on persisting, they kept onpersisting, he lashed out at them. And he tells them I was created for this. And you see from a veryyoung age, that's viola, a mama No, Mama had a completely different outlook on life than the otherchildren that were around him. His father do Jani from this event on Molokai, she actually went tospeak to Mr. Marino is called an teacher who went in turn one to speak to him and know his father

00:14:45-->00:14:59

and told him Look, your son has you know, this special gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Make surehe's given that nurturing, you know, that he deserves. So remember, no, you don't have a lifefinished his health of the Quran while he was in Noah. So as a young boy before the age of puberty,he finishes

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

His current wife, and now his father, he remembers this story of,

00:15:06-->00:15:45

you know, Mr. manoli. As a young child, he finishes his have, he doesn't want to play with the otherboys, but at the same time, and Noah isn't known as you know, a center of academics a center forlearning. It's just a small, regular town. So the only way that Amendment No, we are hammerlock incontinuous education, as if he was to go to Damascus, the capital of Syria. Now, with that beingkept in mind, also look at the other predicament, that other predicament being that yeah, here isthe only, or the eldest son of his father, the only eldest son, I don't remember right now of hisfather. And his father, as he grew older, he needed help with his he needed help with his business,

00:15:45-->00:16:22

he couldn't take care of it by himself. So his father told him, Look, stay with me for some time,help me take care of my business. And as you get older, then maybe at that time, we'll reconsiderit. But at this time, I want you to stay with me. And this is like one of the first importantlessons you learn from him and we know his life. That Amendment No, he is zeal for seekingknowledge, which a lot of young people in our times do. And rather than rebelling against hisparents, he helped out his father. And he sought the blessings from his father, because he knew atthat time that had he rebelled against his father, had he disobeyed his father, there would be no

00:16:22-->00:17:05

better kindness. And so he said, Look, let me just be patient, let me help my father. And then whenthe opportunity comes, when the time arises, I will go and seek knowledge. So as he gets older now,you know around the age of 18, that is when Mr. manoli Rahim Allah finally goes to Damascus, and isrolled enrolled into this institute known as Raja Raja Institute madrasa here. This is where he'senrolled. Now, I want you to pay attention to how Amendment No mo law describes his first two yearsout of the six years that he spends, he says that I would study for 12 hours a day. And with eachhour, I would take a new lesson, meaning that he was studying 12 different subjects at the same

00:17:05-->00:17:41

time. For those of you in university, you know, how difficult this is that if you have more thanfive subjects, your brain will melt to help you break down, it's not physically possible to studythat many subjects. So this is the first Interesting, interesting thing that you see. Number two,the second interesting thing that you see about Mr. manoli, that in this face, it's not just abouthim learning, but he mentioned that along with each hour of learning. He's also teaching thatwhatever he would learn, the way he would retain it is that he would teach it, and this is the wayhe went, you know, learn these things. So now the question arises, an individual learns for 12

Biografi imam nawawi

00:17:41-->00:18:20

hours, he studies what he teaches for 12 hours. When is this individual going to sleep? Inmelancholia, Rahim Allah, he mentioned that for the first two years of my education, the side of mybody, never felt a bit, the side of my body never felt a bed. And in fact, the only time he wouldsleep is while he was studying, and sleep would overcome him, that he would get so tired, you getknocked out, and you fall asleep like this, he would rest for a while, and then eventually he wouldwake up, and then just continue studying. And he continued doing this for two years, two wholeyears. This is how he spent his life. And this is no, this is another, you know, I guess, first

00:18:20-->00:18:44

indication that this is going to be a very special individual, that a man will know your name Allah,as you come to see that from a very young age, you know, he started showing the signs of greatscholarship, that what would usually take other scholars 30 4050 years. Mm hmm. No, you know, himAllah is achieving at a much quicker pace. And this is one of the reasons behind it. This is one ofthe reasons behind it.

00:18:45-->00:19:30

Now, in terms of the scholars praise of him Subhanallah when you look at the way the scholarspraised the amendment, no, he, they praised him like any other great scholar, and the things thatthey generally praised him for, always come down to three main things, they come down to three mainthings. Number one, his level of scholarship, and his level of scholarship is seen by the books thathe wrote. So you'll notice that amount of nowhere Rahim Allah, he was born in 631. And he died in676. So old was he when he died 631 to 676 45 years old. And you'll see that in these 45 years, he'swritten so many books, one of the books he wrote and much more, he actually died before he finished

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

it. And this book was love itself is 1000s of pages long. Now, the scholars, you know, they took anapproximation, that if a monomial himolla started writing at the age of 18, till the day that hedied, on average, how many pages did he write, he wrote an average of over 40 pages per day, inorder for him to have achieved everything that he wrote. It would have been 40 pages a day from theage of 18 till the age that he died. That is how much you would have written

00:20:00-->00:20:39

For each day, so it shows you his great level of scholarship. The second thing that remember no weRahim Allah is praised for his his asceticism, and we're going to come to that, that you'll notice,two things are meant to go hand in hand knowledge and asceticism, asceticism, we mean a love andattachment for this dunya that the more an individual becomes knowledgeable of the deen of Allahsubhanho wa Taala, the less he is supposed to love this dunya genuinely that is what goes hand inhand. But you'll notice that over time, from the time of the Sahaba, as time went on, this conceptof asceticism, it often got perverted, or it often got lost. And that balance of asceticism was

00:20:39-->00:21:19

suddenly very important that we find in the lightbulb moment knowing and then the thirdcharacteristic that imama know, you know him Allah is praised for is the fact that he was very, veryopenly encouraging good and forbidding the evil. So, rather than just you know, sitting at home justwriting letters, he would go out on the streets and enjoying the good and forbid the evil. So, thatis generally what the scholars praised for him consists of now let us look at what is called thesecrets of success, that remember no we had that what was it that made the mama know your name hollasocial successful compared to the other scholars, and then the scholars came up with eight

00:21:19-->00:21:58

particular points that made him successful, and with the lights either we want to try to instillthese points of success in our own lives. Number one, traveling for the sake of knowledge, so you'llnotice that amendment no more law from a very young age, he has this desire to go and study andlearn. And eventually when the mammal Amendment No, no him Allah goes to Damascus. This is travelingfor the sake of knowledge. He went to the went onto a jazz as well, where he performed Hajj andUmrah and he learned from there as well. However, the vast majority of his education took place inDamascus. Now I want you to think about this. Why was traveling for the sake of knowledge, something

00:21:58-->00:22:07

so important in the description of the scholars? Why was it something so important? I want to hearan answer from you guys. While I was traveling for the sake of knowledge suddenly, so integral.

00:22:09-->00:22:13

sincerity. Excellent. What else does it show? Go ahead.

00:22:14-->00:22:19

You're giving up a lot. you're sacrificing. Excellent. And one more thing, one important thing.

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

Go ahead. Sorry. Excellent commitment. So we mentioned sincerity, we mentioned sacrifice. And thethird and key one is commitment that you'll notice, generally speaking, someone who is full is spoonfed something, he takes it for granted. He's like, I can get this anytime. It's of no big concern.But traveling back in the day, where an individual has limited provisions, transportation is verydifficult. And then living in a foreign land is very difficult. This shows a level of commitment,and that the more an individual struggles for something, the more he will cherish it. And that iswhy it was so important that the scholars emphasized that an individual that truly wants to become a

00:22:59-->00:23:41

student of knowledge is tolerable, and it must begin in his homeland. But it concludes by himtraveling, it concludes by him traveling, because it is only when he travels, that he will truly getthe flavor of knowledge, being exposed to the lifestyles of squatters living with the scholars andbeing out of his comfort zone inside the scope of knowledge. That is when an individual will trulybecome a true seeker of knowledge. Number two is that he studied at a well known institution. So itwasn't just about taking knowledge from any scholar that was available. No, that was not the case.But the madrasa that he went to Ottawa here was from the most prestigious prestigious of Institute's

00:23:41-->00:24:19

and this shows us going back to the statements of the predecessors in the habit Diener element, forthe front door element, a memento dynochem that indeed this knowledge this Deen of Allah subhanawtaala this knowledge of Allah Spano tala is your dean, so be very careful from whom you take yourdeen. Now, Mr. manoli Rahim, Allah being you know, professional and Hadith. He learned this veryearly, that you didn't just go to the average scholar, but you went to the best you tried to get thehighest level of Islam had the fewest number of narrators and the most knowledgeable of people. Andthis was another key to success that an individual who seeks knowledge, he takes advantage of what

00:24:19-->00:24:59

he has. Now when you're in a situation where you can pick and choose, then you should pick andchoose the most knowledgeable of scholars that you can find. Number three, is that his intensededication to his studies, his intense dedication to his studies, his classmates, his colleaguesbecoming domina on the amendment now he Rahim Allah, that never did we see Amendment No, we are himAllah, except that he was busy with something either he was busy revising the Koran, either he wasbusy writing, either he was busy teaching so much so that's panela this is so amazing. That I wantyou to think about you know how you treat guests.

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

When you come over to their house to the to your house, you know, you'll break they'll come over toyour house, you'll converse with them, you'll present them something to eat. And you know, just showthem a good time to entertain them. Mm hmm. No, no.

00:25:13-->00:25:46

The way he would treat his guests, he would have a hand he would have a plate ready in the middle ofhis house. there any time someone want to come, they are more than welcome. However, they will gothrough two things. Number one, Mr. manoli Rahim, Allah had so many books that there was no place tosit, except for amendment. No, you know, him, Allah Himself. So if you wanted to sit down, you'dhave to lift some books, and you know, place them somewhere else. They didn't have bookshelves likewe have today. So everything was just lying around on the floor. So that was the first difficulty.So you can imagine someone comes over to your house isn't coming to visit, you know, they get the

00:25:46-->00:26:24

clear message that you don't want them there when there's no place to sit. So they'll see what isimportant, and then they'll leave. And that is it. Number two, remember no more law history studentsmentioned that it was when the guests would come, that Imam and now he Rahim, Allah would then takethe time to sharpen his pencils, that that is the way he would keep himself as he didn't wantanything to distract him from seeking knowledge. So when the guests would come, he would be speakingto them at the same time, and at the same time sharpening his pencils, so that no time would bewasted whatsoever. No time would be wasted whatsoever. Number three, is that he took it upon himself

00:26:24-->00:26:59

to attend as many lessons as he could with as many scholars. And there's two elements to this.Number one is the concept of becoming a polymath. You'll notice in our day and age, when you look atscholars, you'll find scholars that you know martial arts specializes in Akita specialized intafsir, specialized in Hadith, whereas back in the day, Islamic knowledge was all one. And this iswhat naturally made an individual, a polymath. So you wouldn't find them focusing just on onesubject. And this what you find in the moment, no mo law, that when he's studying, you know, 12lessons, it's not about his having like two lessons of Hadith, and three lessons of al Qaeda, no,

00:26:59-->00:27:38

but rather, each lesson is a different subject. And this, you know, again, showed him and know hisgreat understanding and great ability to memorize that he was able to study 12 different subjects,at the same time, part of his dedication, then point number two related to this very point was thefact that he studied with many scholars. And you'll notice that when you study with very variousscholars, this is when you truly start to realize the weaknesses of your teachers, that final law,as a student, you start to develop this aura around your teachers where you start to look at themupon the pedestal, you know, there, you will think of them maybe as flawless individuals, they have

00:27:38-->00:28:11

no mistakes. However, when you start studying with other individuals and individuals who aresuperior to your own teacher, that is when you start to see their flaws. And Mr. manoli Rahim Allahhaving studied with so many teachers, not only did he given this experience of understanding thatthere is no perfect human being, but it also turns taught him something very, very important aswell. And that is the the way to disseminate knowledge, the way to give knowledge back to thepeople. Because as a student of knowledge, it's not just important to learn how to take thatknowledge in. But it's also important to learn how to disseminate that knowledge, how to give that

00:28:11-->00:28:52

knowledge out, and the way that people understand and in a way that people will appreciate. And thiswas something important about having multiple teachers, that from each teacher, you learn adifferent style of disseminating. And that is what Amanda no Yoda himolla was able to take on.Number five, a man went nowhere Rahim Allah had an extremely strong memory. And he loved to read, hehad an extremely strong memory. And he loved to read. Very recently, I was looking at a meme onFacebook. And this is like in the year 2025. And it shows like these young toddlers that have likecell phones and have iPods and iPads, and all these other gadgets, and then one of them has a stick.

00:28:52-->00:29:28

And he's poking a book on the ground. And he's like, I wonder what that thing is. And it showed usshowed a very harsh reality that the more we become accustomed to technology, the less we touch ourbooks. And sometimes I just the other day, I was looking through some of the books on thisbookshelf. Some of them have dust on top of them now being that they haven't been opened in such along time span Allah and that is the reality that when you have an age with that is filled withstimulation, always watching and always listening and always be entertained. Be reading a bookbecomes very, very boring. Now imama no Rahim Allah, not only did he live at a time, where this

00:29:28-->00:30:00

concept of constant stimulation did not exist, but rather Allah subhanho wa Taala had placed insideof him a love of reading. And that is why even when no one was around, he could spend the whole dayand the whole night reading. And this is something panela that you see that the early scholars talkabout. So Abdullah Mubarak Rahim Allah, he was known to always be by himself, always, you know,being in his house, he would go into the machine to pray and then he would go back to his house. Soone day his students stopped him and they said, Oh, she, you know, do not like to socialize and you

00:30:00-->00:30:21

says something so profound. He says, I have companions that are better than any companions thatexists right now. I have the companions of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,meaning that at home, you just busy with himself with Hadith, reading the narrations of the Prophetthat were narrated from the Sahaba de la Ando. And this was something that was instilled in Mr.manoli.

00:30:22-->00:31:06

Number six, is the greatness of his teachers the greatness of his teachers. Now, you'll notice thata teacher needs to have two key elements. Number one is the knowledge itself. And what is moreimportant than the knowledge itself, is care for students is care for students, because it is veryeasy to gain knowledge in a person can read a couple of books, read a couple, listen to a couple oflectures and might know Mashallah, he has quite a bit of knowledge now. But what is difficult tobuild inside oneself, is cared for when students, and you'll notice that this is one of the greatestsigns of a great scholar. It's not how much he memorizes or how much he's able to disseminate. But

00:31:06-->00:31:42

it is the type of students that he goes on to create. She look at someone like the Messenger ofAllah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how is this the generation of the habits so great. It was due tothe teaching methods of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu. I knew that they were all his students,from Abu Bakar, to Abu huraira, to Omar Ali, all of them were his students. So it shows you thegreat characteristics of the teacher themselves. You move on to someone like you know, Imam, Abuhanifa himolla. From his students, you had great great scholars. Like I say Bernie likable use ofall these went on to become great scores. Why? Because of the greatness of the teacher themselves.

00:31:42-->00:32:23

You want someone that even taymiyah he has someone like Raja bit nakaya bibliografia. All of theseare his students shows you the greatness of the teacher themselves. Now, Mr. manoli Rahim, Allah, wementioned this before, he didn't have this upbringing of knowledge. So he didn't have his parentsencouraging him or his parents taking care of him or anyone in his household, but rather it was histeachers that took extra good care of amendment Joey. And you notice that Amendment No, your malawent on to do the exact same thing that one of his closest students have known after he went on tobecome a great scholar in his own right. Number seven, that amendment? No, he Rahim Allah, he wrote

00:32:23-->00:32:32

profusely. And this is one of the most important characteristics of a student of knowledge, that asa student of knowledge, you will always want to have.

Imam nawawi biography full

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

So when you are learning, it's not just about writing the things that you don't know. But you'rewriting everything down that your teacher says, and then you go home, you revise through your notes,you perfect your notes, and then you summarize it, and you put it in a place where it's easy torevise. And then likewise, it is these eventual notes that an individual goes on to teach from it isthese eventual notes that a person will add and subtract from an amendment no himolla. Heestablished this from a very young age, that from a very young age, he loved the concept of teachingand revising, so that every time he would learn something, he would write it down, memorize it,

00:33:07-->00:33:44

revise it, and then go on to teach it to the people, which is point number eight, his love forteaching. And the this is the last point that made him superior to the other scholars, his love forteaching. That's Angela, you'll notice that Alyssa messenger sallallahu alayhi, wa sallam, he puts asuch a heavy emphasis on teaching that in the famous hadith of mine of my friend, Cairo commentanimal Khurana animal that the best of you are those that learn the Quran, and then the emphasis onteach it as well. Then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. In another Hadith, hesays, may Allah brighten the face of an individual that hears a hadith and narrates it just as he

00:33:44-->00:34:22

heard it. And then in the hospital with that, in the farewell photo, what does he say that those ofyou who are present let them inform those of those of you who are absent, so can the Messenger ofAllah sallallahu Sallam puts this great emphasis on teaching? And I guess the most scariest of allof these narrations is where the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentions that letthe individual who conceals knowledge beware of being branded from the Hellfire, meaning when youhave knowledge and you don't share it, then Allah subhanaw taala brands an individual with theHellfire at that time, and it was these narrations that caused the amendment? No, you're a Mullah to

00:34:22-->00:35:00

disseminate the knowledge that he had either through teaching either through writing and these arethe characteristics that made a Magnolia himolla so successful. Now, let us talk about this conceptof Zod the concept of asceticism, that amendment no Rahim Allah height. So first, let me giving youan introduction to what a workflow is. You'll notice that throughout Islam, one of the wayssocieties were maintained, was through the concept of endowments, or Okoth. And what people will dois that people will they would buy orchards, they would buy gardens, they would buy farms, and thenthey would stipulate this for the

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

Muslim community mean that you're not allowed to buy and sell these things, but rather it is for thepoor people or this way, you know a particular group of people for them to benefit from. NowDamascus, does anyone know during whose khilafah was conquered? Whose khilafah was Damascusconquered? Anyone know? Amara Katara della Juana. So from the time of oma hottub till the time ofAmanda No, we you have 600 years in between. and in this time of 600 years, people have builtmultiple multiple Awqaf, so that they had orchards, they had farms, they had all of these, you know,trees, that they would leave as oak leaf and spine love. When you go to this area, you'll see that

00:35:42-->00:36:22

truly It is a very blessed area in terms of its fertile soil SubhanAllah. Now, the reason why Imentioned this is from an Islamic perspective, what is meant to happen when people forget who theAwqaf belongs to, and what it is for. So an individual will leave a walk behind it belongs to thisindividual, however, the people that are to benefit from it or another group of individuals, let'sjust say the poor people. So now when I work with regarding what happens to that, what can we cananyone benefit from it? Or is this the Muslim government on it? What happens at that time?amendment? No Rahim Allah He comments on this in his book on much more. And he says that the work at

00:36:22-->00:37:06

that time can be benefited from by any Muslim, that once we no longer remember who built it, and weno longer remember who it is for, then it becomes a general property of the Muslim community thatany Muslim can go and benefit from it. You will notice that Amendment No, we are him Allah. Hedidn't eat the fruits of Damascus. He never thought he ate the fruits of Damascus. They asked himwhy was this that why did you not eat the fruits of Damascus? He said, because when Omar Abdullahwho conquered Damascus, it became a land and center for the Muslims and people built off intoThoreau. And I fear that someone built an oak off. And now we no longer know who it belongs to. And

00:37:06-->00:37:47

I'm afraid that I may eat from that or cough when it is not from my right. And that is why mama nohula hula, he will only eat from the fruits and vegetables that his mother and father would bringhim from Noah, and as every couple of months. And that is the only time he would eat from the fruitsand vegetables. Other than that, he's just eating bread, or you know anything else that will keephim alive. The second sight of asceticism that you see in the life of a man went nowhere, him Allah,that amendment, no, you're a human law. He didn't get married. And he comments on this himself. Hesaid, I feel that if I was to get married, I would fall into something hard on meaning that I

00:37:47-->00:38:24

wouldn't be able to fulfill the rights of my wife. And the rights of the wife are great in Islam.You know, they're very, very huge. That you know, the professor said them, he emphasizes, you know,very heavily that the best of you are those that are best, your womenfolk meaning the best yourwife's. So he said he feared that he would fall into her arm by not giving her her due rightsbecause he loves knowledge so much. He loves teaching so much. And this is why the amendment no yourHumala, he didn't get married. Now, as an adult, I want you to think about this. What individual hasthe capability to sacrifice that desire, that ability to you know, control those raging hormones and

00:38:24-->00:39:04

sacrifice it for the sake of knowledge? It's a very difficult task yet Mr. Manohar mohalla embarkedupon this task, because he neglected According to him, which was a Sunnah, that according to him,marriage was just a sinner. It was not something compulsory, for that which he feared of fallinginto Haram. That is the second step of asceticism that you see. Then the third thing and it's thelast you know, point like I mentioned, pertaining to his worship. Abdullah thought Rahim Allah, hementioned that I accompanied him and now we Rahim Allah for 10 years, for 10 years. And he says thatat nighttime, I would go into the masjid, thinking that I would be the first one in the masjid.

00:39:04-->00:39:40

There are no thought he had this aspiration. Then in the middle of the night before salata, fudger Iwould go to the masjid with the intention that I would be the first one in the masjid. And each timeI would go, I would find Mr. manoli Rahim Allah there. And I would not know did he nominated himAllah stay there from Asia? Or did he just naturally precede me every single time. And then hementioned is one remarkable thing. He says that every time I would enter, I would see him praying,rather than praying by myself, I would join him. And often I would find that Mm hmm. knowing himAllah, when it came to the verses pertaining to the Day of Judgment, he would stop there and

00:39:40-->00:39:59

continuously just repeat the verses of the day of judgment and cry and cry and cry. And it shows youthe level of piety and the level of the Buddha that he Mama, no, he ain't no hola hat. Now we moveon to the enjoining good and forbidding evil of Mr. Minogue. So

00:40:00-->00:40:41

I want you to understand the political context of where Mr. manoli Rahim Allah lift that AmendmentNo, we are human law, he lived at a time where a transition is taking place from the ayyubid dynastyto the mamluk dynasty. Now, the ayyubid dynasty comes from, you know, the Mongol area, and soplanula after the death of the prophecy center, and after the pfitzner that took place during thetime of the Sahaba de la, I know, this has been the greatest fitna that struck the Muslim Ummah, theattack of the Mongols, that if you look at what they did with both dads and Allah, in that time,they said that they killed over 500,000 of the Muslims, and they will just take their heads, and

00:40:41-->00:41:20

they will just pile them up in the city, that you would see blood flowing in the streets of Baghdad,flowing into the rivers. And he said the first time the river changed color, it turned into red. Andthis is how it stayed for some time. And then the Mongolians, they hated reading, they they theywere very ignorant people they hated it. So what did they do? They found no benefit in the books. Sothey took the books, and they threw them into the ocean again to the Euphrates, and then from thattime it went from red to black because all the ink started to come out. Now you notice that as theseMongolians are coming from the east, going all the way to the west, the Muslim Ummah is suffering.

00:41:20-->00:41:38

And then who does Allah subhana wa tada choose to stand up and defend the Muslim you know,civilization. It is a group of slaves. And that is where the title of mom Luke's came from that theywere possessed. And the head of the mom looks at that time, who stood up was this individual by thename of Does anyone know?

00:41:40-->00:41:42

Cortez was the warrior but who was the ruler

00:41:47-->00:41:48

of the head.

00:41:49-->00:42:29

And you remember, I'll be very blunt. So the ruler at that time and he ends up becoming Khalifa asthe viral vaporous. Now unfortunately Subhanallah you would think that an individual that comes froma very humble beginning not having any was any property, you know, he would appreciate wealth andyou know, be faithful to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And unfortunately, the this Muslim oma has beenplagued with, you know, rulers and leaders that overindulge in this dunya Pamela, so Vidal vaporous,he defeats the Mongols, and this new moon new dynasty starts up. And then again, it becomes veryoppressive, very, very oppressive. The first thing that you notice is that what is a viral baby has

00:42:29-->00:43:07

to do this concept of volkoff that we were talking about. He said, I want the scholars to issue afatwa that the bulk of it belongs not to the Muslim state, but it belongs to the Muslim ruler. Nowover here, you had two camps. Camp number one that said, you know, Santa Ana wattana, we hear and weobey, bend over backwards, any photo that's needed, you know, here you go, we'll give it to you. Andthat is what they did. Now, finally, this sounds like a terrible thing. But there's like, a goodpoint in this and I and next benefit in this, there are at least a scholar and they're the leadersat that time. They cared about what the scholars said, they didn't want to rebel against this, cause

00:43:07-->00:43:35

Hadis 40 Imam Nawawi

they didn't say, We don't care what the scholars have to say, I'm gonna go and do what I wantanyways. But they said, We want the scholars to issue a fatwa for us. And it was only the corruptscholars that issued that first what then they would go ahead and follow it. And that is aninteresting benefit that overtime how things changed that, you know, not only did you see thecorruption of the scholars, but now you see that even the leaders got more delay, call us wecouldn't care less about the scholars, were going to do what we want to do, and we don't care less.So at least at that time, they cared about the perception of the scholars. So now when this starts

00:43:35-->00:44:14

to happen, who is at the forefront of the opposition? It is environmentally, an amendment, norahimullah. This is a letter that is documented in history. He writes a letter to a Viola Davis, andhe mentions that, you know, although I had a baby, as you started as an individual that had nothing,and Allah subhanho wa Taala now made you, the leader of the Muslim Empire, do not abuse your rightsover the people, this old cough, it doesn't belong to the ruler, but it belongs to the Muslim state,and that is the way it should remain. And then you see that amendment no Rahim Allah, He because onto the forefront. And there's one other particular incident that you see from enjoying the good and

00:44:14-->00:44:53

forbidding the evil. Wherever Harold vaporous again, you see his greed for wealth, that this is oneof the first times that a tax is levied upon the people without reason. So in Islamic history, thegeneral concept of tax is that the Muslim ruler is not allowed to tax the civilians, you're notallowed to tax the civilians up until there's a need for it. So for example, the Muslims are goingto war and they need that wealth, then they can be taxed or there's a need of the community thenthey can be taxed. But the general case scenario is that they are not to be taxed. So now when thewar is completely over, everything is finished. their need for the money was finished. So vital Bay

00:44:53-->00:44:59

bonus, instead of decreasing the tax on the people, he actually increases it on the people. Andagain, what is a monomial

00:45:00-->00:45:39

Mahalo do writes a very, very powerful letter, that fear the day we will stand in front of Allahsubhanho wa Taala we're in this dunya you're taxing the people and in the accurate it is your deedsthat will be taxed by Allah subhana wa Tada, another very powerful, staunch and harsh letter that hewrote to avoid old papers. Now, when this letter was written, he asked, you know, who wrote thisletter? And it was told to him that Amendment No, we're hearing Allah wrote this letter. And then hebecame afraid he didn't do anything. And you'll notice that even though Mr. manoli Rahim, Allah, heopposed a viral Papyrus to such an extent that always you know, opposing him, a vinyl label, it's

00:45:39-->00:46:18

never actually physically did anything to him. And it is said in the books of history that are votedon by Buddhists was asked, you know, why is it that you never imprison the Mammon? No way? Why is itthat, you know, you never had an exiled, you know, why didn't you do anything? And, and he mentionedover here, that any time I would think of him unknowingly, I would find a fear inside of myself, afear that I couldn't do anything to him. And the scholars commented that this is a sign of theHadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where he said, when he when he and I went to thehub hub, that whoever tries to harm one of my earlier one of my close slaves, then I will wage war

00:46:18-->00:46:57

against this individual. And this is why a viral baby is never actually harmed. Mmm and no, this iswhy a lot of babies never actually harmed human Minogue. Now what I want to conclude our sessionwith is two things. Number one, the writings of Amendment No III, what I would I would like to do isto briefly go through some of the names of the books and just give a brief commentary. So let'sstart off with the books of Hadith that amendment no we Rahim Allah wrote the most famous book ofHadith or not famous, but the most extensive book of a defining moment. No, he wrote, was anexplanation of Sahih Muslim known as El amin Hajj. So you'll notice that when Imam Muslim Rahim

00:46:57-->00:47:38

Allah he wrote an Sahih Muslim, he didn't actually put chapter headings inside a Muslim, he just putthe Hadith inside and you are meant to figure out what a man Muslim Rahim Allah was alluding to ImamI know you know him Allah. He is the one that went through a Muslim and started to put the chapterheadings. And now in the English translation, when you see the chapter headings, those aren't thechapter headings of a Muslim, but rather those are the chapter headings of Mr. manoli Rahim Allah.So this is his most extensive book of Hadith and explanation as a Muslim number to the other side ofhim. The other side of him is perhaps one of the most important books that any Muslim will own. And

00:47:38-->00:48:14

this is because it is a book that softens the heart with authentic narrations. So the vast majorityof narration is taken into the other side that are from Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. And the onlytopics they deal with are those things that were soft in the heart. So he starts off with thechapter of sincerity goes on to the chapter of Toba goes on to the chapter of virtuous deeds. Andanytime a Muslim feels like a hardness in his heart, let him return to this book The other side ofhate and within the hate Allah, you will find there in that which will soften it. And then the lastbook of Hadith is Amendment No is 40 Hadith. Now here's a quiz for you. How many Hadith is the mama

00:48:14-->00:48:16

know is 40 Hadith actually have

00:48:18-->00:49:05

4639 10 who said 10? Why don't have 10? Well, good guests. I appreciate that. Good. Excellent. Itactually has 42 Hadith in it. So the 40 is not referring to the actual number, but it's referring tothe category that it's in. So this is the 40s right? So there's 42 Heidi's inside the amendment nois our brain and then even Roger Brahim Allah. He wrote a tech moolah, a completion of this, ofwhich he made 50 a hadith trying to use the same criteria that amendment no he Rahim Allah had, andthen he wrote an explanation of this, which he called jameelah alone will become that the compendiumof knowledge and wisdom. And this was a Malinois 48 Hadith that he compiled with himself. Then you

00:49:05-->00:49:47

move on to books related to you know, spirituality. Let's just say an Imam. I know Rahim Allah, hewrote the book he traveled Africa. Where, where mmm Noah hemella tried to compile all of thenarrations where it is mentioned that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made aparticular Vicar. So for those of you who are familiar with these small Doha books, his non Muslim,it is actually taken from a much larger book, which is in two volumes, known as keytab. And if weremember no rahimullah tried to compile all of the narrations that talk about where the Messenger ofAllah sallallahu Sallam made a particular Vicar likewise, Amanda no Rahim Allah has a book on Quran

00:49:47-->00:49:59

as well, which is known as a TBN. And this book Sapiens is a very interesting book. And I believeanyone that is memorizing the Koran needs to refer to this book because this book is not about

00:50:00-->00:50:45

You know, just learning how to recite the Quran or read the Koran, but rather it is about the dab ofthe individual that carries the Quran. And by carry we mean memorizes it and you know wants topreserve it. So it's about the adapt dealing with that. Then you have books in masala Hadith. Now inthe Faculty of Hadith in Islamic University of Medina till this day, the book that they use istotally borrowed and totally by Ravi is written by Mr. masucci. And it is his commentary on theamendment no is a duck read. And this is a book on masala Hadith. So remember him Allah wrote acreed to which Mr. masucci wrote to Liberace and that is still this day still used as a part of, you

00:50:45-->00:51:29

know, the official curriculums across the world. Now in Fifth Amendment No Rahim Allah had twobooks, number one, which was a logo to polythene. And although the poly bean he wrote pretty earlyin his life, it is in 11 volumes, and this is known as a very important book and the shaft a metab.But a more important book that he went on to start writing was a much more sharp, sharp almohadsthat this book on much more was meant to be, like his ultimate dedication, his ultimate, you know,sacrifice I guess or his ultimate gift to the Muslim ummah. Remember that happy Rahim Allah Hewrites in Surah number lm a novella in the momento his biography, saying that there are three books

00:51:29-->00:52:07

of work that an individual who truly wants to grasp, he will have to study these three books, books,he mentioned alimony, but even Kodama, he mentioned, at least his current attended by even Abdullahbar. And then the third book he mentions is much more by Mr. manoli. Because when a mama No, hewrote elementary more, it was not just about promoting the Shafi method, but it was actually tryingto derive a true conclusion. So he does a very good job of getting narrations from the predecessors,bringing them together has an intellectual discourse, and then gives in a final ruling. So it is avery important book to read. Now, one of the amazing things about all much more, is that Amendment

00:52:07-->00:52:45

No, you realize you can see that he gives a very important place to softness of the heart, and thateven with the majority amendment, no rahimullah, he doesn't start off with kitahara. He doesn'tstart off with, you know, the book of purification. But rather he starts off with a much more bywriting advocates of a student of knowledge. And that is the very beginning of and much more ispurely about the etiquettes of seeking knowledge. And anyone that wants to seek knowledge is advisedthat they should read this book. There's a famous book in our times known as hyper palatable. Andthis was written by shikaka, Abu Zaid, and this was further explained by Jacob No, I mean, one of

00:52:45-->00:53:24

the primary references that shikaka Zadar high mala used and handed to Parliament in was theintroduction that Mr. manoli Rahim Allah put in his and much more. Now, this is this is just a smallintroduction to the books that Mr. manoli wrote, I want to leave you with what Abdullah thoughtmentions, he says that, Amanda No, he eventually returned back to Noah from Damascus, where heeventually became sick. And one day he invited me to my house, and he made me take an oath. He mademe say that I will do whatever you tell him to say, ma'am, no, he says, I want you to take a notethat whatever I tell you, you will do. Now in being an obedient student, he says, of course,

00:53:24-->00:54:06

anything my teacher says, I will definitely do. Then after remember, no Rahim, Allah got this oathfrom him. He says that I'm making you take an oath, that you will destroy all of my books except forthese. And he specified which books would remain and which books would be destroyed. And I thoughtmentions that they were Eros, meaning that they were 1000 different notebooks, which I personallyhad to dip them in water, so that the ink would fade away, and it could not be read, nor could it beused again. And he said with each book, as I'm doing this, the pain is, you know, filling me upinside, but there was nothing that I could do about it, because I took an oath by Allah subhanaw

00:54:06-->00:54:46

taala. Now here you see the last important lesson that remember knowing him Allah, He only conveyedthat knowledge, which he was 100% sure of that amendment. No rahimullah. The reason why he had thosebooks destroyed is that while they were his personal notes, while they were worth a lot to him, hewas afraid that inside of it was knowledge that he was doubtful about that. Perhaps, you know, hedidn't check its resources. Perhaps he didn't give a final conclusion, or perhaps the conclusion mayhave been incorrect. And this amendment no mo law, he had to destroy it. Again, another glimpse intothe piety and taqwa of Allah, fearing that he would say something about Allah subhanho wa Taala or

00:54:46-->00:55:00

Nawawi

his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam without knowledge. Now Amanda, no Rahim Allah. He fallssick in the year 676. He falls sick in the year 676. And he returned

Now Adobe rahimullah when he concludes the biography of Mr. manoli. He mentioned three importantpoints. He says that amendment no Rahim Allah had three characteristics that he was at the pinnacleof that he excelled at. And if any scholar of Islam just had one of these characteristics, he wouldbe considered a great Imam within his own right. But Mr. manoli Rahim Allah had become the pinnaclehad excelled at these three characteristics. And those are the three characteristics that Imentioned at the beginning. Number one, his level of scholarship, that learning, reading, writing,and most importantly, disseminating, he was at the top of his game at that, number two, his level of

00:55:55-->00:56:32

asceticism, that his lack of love for this dunya was unparalleled. Someone constantly worshippingAllah subhanaw taala someone taking advantage of his time, someone always doing some sort of thing.And then the third thing that he mentions is Amendment No Rahim Allah enjoining, good and forbiddingevil, and Subhanallah these are the characteristics that all the scholars are meant to have, youknow, these are like fundamental elements. And then it was Mr. manoli Rahim Allah that excelled atall three of them was the pinnacle and all three of them that made him the great Imam that he was.We pray that Allah subhana wa tada has mercy upon them and forgive us for his shortcomings and

00:58:33-->00:58:35

Okay, just go ahead.

00:58:38-->00:58:38

Yeah.

00:58:41-->00:58:44

Complete. Okay. So the story behind it much more.

00:58:46-->00:59:19

What happened with Elon Musk more? Is that a moment? No, he when he wrote the first half of thebook, it was like a book that was unparalleled to anything that was written at that time. And peoplewanted to follow the footsteps of him. I know he got him over. And it was the will of Allah subhanhowa Taala that anyone that would start it, he would die before finishing it. So I don't remember whowas the second individual. But after the memenuhi, there was a second scholar that started tocomplete and much more. And then the third scholar that actually went on to complete and much morewas started in a sippy. So it is only the first half of the book that is you know, Mama notice and

00:59:19-->00:59:36

An Nawawi's Forty Hadith

then the second half of the book is by these other two individuals. And that is why you will seethat particularly in methodology of filk, particularly when it comes to issues of arcada as well, itstarts to differ from the first half to the second half. And that is because of the difference ofthe scholars. Last two questions number one, number two, go ahead.

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

And then on top of that, there's no place to sit, you want to sit down, you have tomove some books to sit down. And then if you get an opportunity to actually talk to him, I know he,he's not going to look you straight in the eye is going to be sharpening his pencils while he'stalking to you just so that he doesn't waste any time. Makes sense. Last question, go ahead.

01:00:27-->01:00:28

Because of lack of sleep,

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

Allah knows best it is very possible very, very possible that you notice Pinilla that even thoughthe stories are talking about him sleeping and him eating. It's an absolute minimum that Mr.manolito came over in some of the narrations mentioned that he would only eat the food that hisparents would bring from so not only fruits and vegetables, but had the bread. He would only eat thebread that his parents would bring from him for him and he wouldn't eat anything else. And up untilthey would come again. He wouldn't eat any food he will just fast continuously.
