ese men took him

as they took him as a guide and they

exalted him lead to a zero what about

Peru he was sent to to be exalted and

dignified and to be respected to a

degree they we know the Sahaba some of

them used to drink the remains of his Wu

though it's in the Shiva ayaat we know

Baraka drank the the the urine of the

prophets Allah I am without knowing that

it was urine but she drank it and his

urine will spire by consensus of their

own AMA and but she drank it and she

said well I'm a stuck human but Nevada

darica Aveda I never had a stomachache

after that day and so there's they had a

great respect and love for the prophet

sallallaahu said I'm but nonetheless

they took him as an example they took

him as their Imam as their Paragon and

model and this needs to be renewed in

the this Ummah that we need to go back

to the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Allah I

am and one of the things I would say

about the Islamic education if we're not

training our children to take at the

Sunnah upon themselves and to model

themselves after the Prophet SAW licen

and then our education is a failure in

every aspect we need literally to renew

this Ummah the I had with this Ummah we

need to renew

I had to the messenger of allah and to

the book of allah this is what we have

to do

adenine aussie aha and he said li Manya

Rasul Allah and the Prophet said rakita

be la vara sunnat e rasool' allah well

he a metal muslimeen wa ha Satyam when I

met him

oh I met him now see aha is sincerity to

Allah and to the messenger of allah to

the book of allah to the messenger of

allah and then to the leaders of the

muslims the rightly guided leaders who

established the dean and we struggle and

those also some the water could be

better in what had job even those

leaders who are have strayed from the

right path in everything other than

disobedience to Allah then we support

them because it strengthens the shoka of

the Muslims so the Muslims even did

jihad against bad rulers I mean this is

historical because they understood that

a Muslim of the own map the benefit of

the OMA was greater than any individual

benefits and I just want to I would like

to read very briefly from a man even

jubail who was one of the anima our own

Appa who took a Allah and that was one

of the Sunnah of the rule Amasya higuma

TL jihad my the tourism I mean a modern

word in Arabic see aha but see I used to

mean a spiritual pilgrimage the prophets

Allah said him said the spiritual

pilgrimage of my Ummah is jihad and the

modern word see AHA is tourism and

that's the modern spiritual pilgrimage

of these barbarians is to go and lie on

the beach somewhere they work all year

long and go lie on the beach somewhere

whereas the sea AHA of this Ummah is

jihad struggle feasible Allah and


yep open for feasibility area the one

that goes out seeking knowledge is in

the path of Allah Mujahid in the path of

Allah until he returns home and Allah

says in the Quran about let not all of

you go out I am Pharaoh Khafre all of

you don't go out that a group should

stay behind Lee at the Apollo 15 that

learn the Dean so even the people are

gone and jihad there should always be a

section of the umma that their jihad is

to maintain the Sharia of Allah now if

you look in the OMA we have a crises of

knowledge we have

the anima in this Ummah now can be

counted on the hands and that's not an

exaggeration and and the the people now

who even have are considered anima if

they're honest with themselves they know

that they're they're nothing compared to

the anima of the past they're nothing I

mean one of the great scholars of the

United Arab Emirates Shay Given salic

who's the head of the Paulo in a line

and he has over 30 years of experience

in Allah and his his library is huge

library and I never opened up one of his

books except I found his markings on the

side and he told me he said you know in

previous times we we would be considered

like secondary students

he said they consider us alumina he said

in the old days we would be lucky to get

into a laachraoui yin or into Zaytuna

or into an oz heart and he wasn't being

falsely humbled he was just telling the

truth and so we have to recognize that

we need anima we need people to rise up

to the Mohammed esteem we need people

who understand also but we don't need

automata mood Oh nomads that don't

understand the AIDS they're living in

and now in the Muslim world if you look

at who's studying and a lot of the

Sharia colleges there are people that

they are have difficult time and that is

not everybody and I'm not denigrating

because there's many honorable people

that are attempting to learn Sharia but

many of these people they come out of

backgrounds where they're there the

level of understanding is not the degree

of intellect is not there that we need

to rise to the level of the problems

that are confronting this Ummah and if

you look at the Muslim the the movements

in the Muslim world most of the

movements in the Muslim world are led by

engineers really this is a fact why

because most of the the real powerful

intellects of this oma have gone into

the sciences when in previous times they

would have gone into Sharia and so

unfortunately like saying Omar sifaka

who a brontosaur

be people are sick before you become

leaders because if you don't have faith

at the hub Epona you know they'll just

err by their nature and so the Dean is

based on on substance are also law

profound and our o Sole are not simply

the Oh solids that are not simply

limited to Islam they can be applied to

any corporation could take the whole

soul of Islam and they could apply it

for their own benefit their universal

principles that transcend really even

the religious character of their source

but we need people that understand it

that rise to the level of the Deen and

we need to dedicate of our children in

the traditional Muslim world every

family wanted at least one or two of

their children to enter into Islamic

studies at least but also we have the

Arabic language just learning the Arabic

language in a novel Quran and out of the

land local taka-kun we've put it into

the Arabic language in order to give you

the ability to use your intellect

because Arabic language by its nature

enlarges the intellectual capacity of

the individual and I guarantee that

somebody asked me why should I learn

Arabic I said because it'll increase

your intelligence it will if you learn

the Arabic language it's a deep language

it's a profound language it's the

language Allah chose to give his last

message in now if you look even Jubair

went from her anata now this is he gives

it it's a reg'lar a journey but I just

want to show what he says about Damascus

Damascus the mission which was one of

the greatest cities of scholarship there

were over 70 colleges 70 colleges in

Damascus alone in the city alone there

were over 70 colleges in fest there were

about 30 and I'm talking about not

jamming our university colleges for

higher education of students who had

gone out of the the primary level and

going into serious study of Mattoon and

and and things he says in this venerated

mosque after the morning prayers their

daily assembles a great congregation

Jemma a tune edema of the reading of one

of the seven sections of Quran so every

day in Beni in the message of Benny

Omega they used to recite one seventh of

Quran they would finish it every seven


he said it was a big Jumanji American

Alvina a huge group Allah said like a

tomato Coleman V beta mean that the

prophets allah i sent him said lies the

metaphor motivate him in beauty line yet

- Nikita a la huerta Daraa Sunnah in

hospital Manmatha a second necessarily

mr. kena what American oil or vegetable

of the Rama that the Sakina comes down

the Angels will cover them embrace them

and they will get this tranquility and

mercy from Allah will encompass them

Rockman well either Korean Quran says to

me Runa ho 1 C 2 la allakum tohe moon

the Rehema comes with the reading of

Quran but look at the hadith the Prophet

said yet Luna kita Allah way at adhara

Sunnah ho not just reciting it they

study it the Quran is meant to be

studied it is a worldview that's meant

to be imbibed by the individual Muslim

to learn to see things as they truly are

along edenia as Chaka Mejia the Prophet

used to say show me things as they truly

are a llama Iranian hahahaha what was up

in a TV show me truth as it is truth and

give me the ability to follow it well

Iranian ba dee da ba dee da what is

openness Tina ba and show me falsehood

as it truly is falsehood and give me the

ability to avoid it and so he said they

would do this and then he said this is

unfailing in other words this was

something he saw a continuous action and

it is the same after the evening prayers

for the reading of what is called the

cows area this is in 1151 of the

Christian era this is during the time of

the RZA of Islam or rise of the Muslim

means Allah is always Aziz and and his

Deen is always Aziz Islam always has is

that and is the truly lying but the

Muslims there is a is dependent upon

whether they practice the Dean let's say

he know what a 1001 Tamara alone in

kuntum mu'minin'

don't be weak and don't grieve because

you're the superior ones in come to mock

meaning if your people of Eman indium


in Indians as compared home for Padma

Salam upon me through if you if you get

afflicted by something know that they

get afflicted by those things too in

other words what afflicts us afflicts

them as well

what city can I am who tell we don't

have been an ass we changed this matter

some tribulation is for you and then for

them but look at the Prophet when they

said about the cut Allah of Yom HUD and

he told amar to shout back to them

no because they said this is for better

your katana alone is for our katana and

better and what did the prophets Allah

lightest and him say no tell them katha

Donovan Jenna what cotton arkinson are

our dead are in Jenna and your dead are

in the Hellfire so we're not the same

we're not the same arm Allah is Allah

and as for those who disbelieve the

Molalla home

they have no mola so he said and when

they read from Surat that Kel thought

until the end of the book to this

assembly of health are come all who do

not well know the Quran by heart and all

such participants receive a daily

allowance they were given a stipend in

the message to maintain this practice

more than 500 persons being able to live

from it so people were paid to recite

the Quran continuously this is one of

the virtues of this venerated Masjid in

which from morn till eve the Quran is

read unceasingly in it lectures are

delivered to students and teachers

receive a liberal stipend the teachers

the unum I used to give a liberal

stipend that means they were given good

amount of money and the ulama used to be

honored and people say well yeah they

won't do it for the face of Allah for


what if you give them money or something

no Islam is to be encouraged and that's

why traditionally one of them said turn

them to the animal ad la for other a

little more in line y Hakuna Lila when I

began seeking knowledge I did it for

other than Allah because the ulama used

have a big death with the people and he

when he began his journey he began

studying for other than allah

subhanallah tanah but he said true

knowledge refuses to be for other than

Allah subhana WA Ta'ala in other words

he was purified in the process and this

is what happened and you can look at it

now if you look at many doctors or

engineers in the Muslim Ummah now if you

have $100 maybe only 15 of them or 20

are really true doctors in other words

they have a vocation to heal people

other people just doctors because their

parents wanted the doctors because it

has a status but still they benefit

people you can still go to that one you

might not get the same bedside manner

you might not feel as comfortable with

him but he can still benefit the person

because he's learned a knowledge well

traditionally it was the same with the

ulama that they were all sought

knowledge maybe out of a hundred anima

there were only 15 or 20 that were real

people of taqwa and and and these type

of things but despite that even the ones

that weren't benefitted other people in

the prophets Elijah sanam talks about

the ulama who benefit people you feel in

an ass well i interfere own of the enemy

they don't benefit from their knowledge

but other people benefit from them and

the hadith is famous about the animal

yamaha yama people see him going into

the fire and they said Bikaner done'

it was because of you we were saved well

how can you be going to the fire and the

alum says because I didn't benefit from

my knowledge but the Deen is preserved

by ulama by men and women who take it

upon themselves to learn the Deen and

this doesn't mean you know people say

what about the dunya worldly sciences

we're backward now we need we need to

catch up in technology we need to have

more engineers more technicians these

type of things subhanAllah this Intel

this type of understanding has destroyed

this Ummah because first of all we did

not lose the Islamic sovereignty because

of inferior technology and if you think

that you haven't read the book of Allah

subhana wa tada

because no group is ever destroyed

because of inferior technology it's

quite the opposite that that

times Allah causes a small group who's

weaker to have victory over a group

that's bigger and stronger why be easily

laughs because Allah desires to show his

Sunna better al-kubra we celebrate that

day every year why because it's the day

of the truth despite they had inferior

technology they didn't have the weapons

they didn't have these things despite

that fact they had victory why because a

park of the thought like even an out of

me in his camera Quran says a taco to

guitar were intimate owns her own

ability come what I said to have them

are rats in my attic even a lot of me

who was a Mujahid in his own time the

great civilian avi

he said that true strength is in

obedience to Allah subhana WA Ta'ala

and this oma is given victory because of

its weak people we're giving victory

because of weakness in kuntum mu'minin'

not another omaha be better than one to

medina allah gave you victory and better

and you were weak and humiliated in the

earth so we have to understand our way

of viewing things is different but if we

don't have people in the masajid

learning the Book of Allah if we don't

have people of ebody if we don't have

people calling on Allah subhana WA -

Anna if we don't have this training

going on then what good are we what

benefit are we I mean this is not I'm

not making things up study the history

of this Ummah so he says here the

strangest thing then he says that the

Mauna Kea have a Zawiya for study in the

west side because he was from morocco

from Andalusia and he just mentioned

that and there the students from Al

Maghrib who receive a fixed allowance

assemble the conveniences of this

venerated Masjid for strangers and

students are indeed many and wide they

honored the horrible people coming from

now if you're from another country it's

like you're from another planet in the

memo Vanunu era in the hadith Muhammad

okawa in the Hadiya Omar Omar in the


Motoko mohammed al wahida why not a book

on fat atone this is your OMA is

so have taqwa of Allah subhanAllah to

Anna Allah made us brothers and sisters

he made us brothers and sisters by the

Kalima la ilaha illallah muhammad rasool

allah and all this division for

rectitude and this is part of what the

educational system does inculcate some

people a sense of their Egyptian Asst of

their seriousness of their Pakistan eNOS

of the know we inculcate in our youth a

sense of their Islam that Islam is

paramount and that were one OMA we're a

body and it doesn't say we all have to

become like each other no it honors

cultures Islam honors people's

traditions it honors their cultures the

Sudanese have a beautiful culture you go

and you see things that you don't see in

other places if you go to Egypt then you

eat I'm redeemed for the iftar they

don't have that in Sudan but Sudanese

like it when they go to Egypt for iftar

maybe they have it do they have I'm

gonna dine in Sudan they got it from

Egypt you see so so good things come

from culture you see you go and you know

they like it and they bring it back

Islam just gets rid of the dirt it's

like if you have a big feast and you go

in and in the middle there's a pig and

all around it are good things fruits and

all these things all Islam does is it

takes the pig out it says this is

harmful throws it away but everything

else is cool Allah shareable and that's

what Islam does with culture it comes

into a place and it looks there's good

things in Canadian culture not

everything is bad most thing but not

everything so there are things that

Islam if it came here it would preserve

them it would honor them and it would

say no there's nothing wrong with that

but it would also clarify because it's

for fun you federal banal happy would

happen so what the good things that it

would do it would keep like punctuality

that unfortunate we have to learn from

them and Islam the Prophet SAW lies in

Subhan Allah he waited three days for a

man before Islam in one place he waited

three days that was how strong his word

was and when the man finally showed up

he forgot all about his appointment the

Prophet to all he said it was

honey you know you wear you wore me out

waiting for you so long Madison I mean

the prayer itself teaches us punctuality

not obsessive like clocks people saying

when's he gonna finish here we don't we

don't have to be that punctual so then

he says this is so amazing the strangest

thing to tell of this mosque concerns

the column which stands between the old

and the new max Ora it has a fixed walk

for the benefit of those who lean

against it in meditation and study there

were pillars that somebody donated from

his wealth money to support anyone that

wanted to lean against that pillar and

meditate to oh I mean what kind of

people were that there's something

amazing in fest they have a walk there

to this day that feed stray cats

somebody left a walk that somebody goes

out and feeds the cats the these Muslims

were extraordinary human beings we saw

decided a Fafi from Seville called

Elmo Roddy in the morning at the end of

the assembly for the reading of a 7th

section of the Quran each man leans

against a column while in front of him

sits a boy who instructs him in the

Quran the boys also have a fixed

allowance for their reciting but those

of their fathers who are fluent prohibit

their sons from accepting it they're

teaching them if although the remainder

do so then he says this is one of the

virtues of Islam - Elam infidel and

Islam the walk system where people

donate money for people to study to give

them Etha

and traditionally one of the in the

books of thick in in the book in ham

doon on his hasha of mayara

says that it is not a fault or a blemish

for the paula venom to ask from wealthy

people to support him the wealthy people

should be looking for the love to

support to help them in their studies

and if you look in this kaffir system

they give endowments they

endowments they help people what for

Kufa to increase their power they have

think tanks they have RAND Corporation

Ford Foundation Carnegie Foundation the

Rockefeller Foundation they give huge

amounts of money for people to spend two

years doing nothing but studying so that

they can write a book that ends up in

the in the Pentagon or in the State

Department they let them go and study in

Syria for two years so they can

understand the social system and how it

works they do this for ku phone and

we're supposed to be I said to her belly

laugh we should have more love for Allah

so behind Wattana than these people for

their Tahu and yet we don't see it with

rare exception and then he says here

well then he says for orphan boys there

is in the town a large school with a

generous endowment rock phone from which

the teachers draw enough to sustain

themselves and disembark from it to

support and clothe the children this is

also one of the uncommon things to tell

of the virtues of these lands the

instructions of boys in the Quran and

all these eastern lands consists only of

making them commit to memory writing

they learn through the medium of poetry

and other things the book of the a lotta

Allah is thus kept undefiled from the

markings and rubbings out of the boys


I mean he's saying in Andalusia they

didn't have this habit but he was

praising equality that they would give

the Quran by telling Shafi'i in order

that the boys wouldn't write the Quran

and then erase it they didn't want to

defile the book with the erasure is so

beautiful and this is tahleen women you

out them shy or loving I'm otaku Kalume

those who exalt the these these

standards of allah subhana wa ta'ala

this is from the taqwa in the hearts of

the people and they had great taqwa and

Colleen for the Book of Allah subhana WA

Ta'ala and this goes on it's it's a very

beautiful it will make you weep when you

read it you weep you know because it's

lost these traditions are gone you know

so I think just in summary

we as people and here in Toronto there's

something that we can do and there's

there's one thing we need to understand

which is important and it keeps the

Muslims and this is something that is

borrowed from a corporate model but I

think it's very valid and what a heck

might old volatile movement there's an

idea of what's called a circle of

concern and a circle of influence the

circle of concern is the greater circle

like our concern is for the whole Ummah

man I offend the amur and meaningfully

Simon home o ammidon muslimeen the one

not concerned about the Muslims isn't

from amongst them so we concern

ourselves with the Muslim but where is

our circle of influence where can we

really have to fear now we can have fear

by making dua for the umma

so the fear extends beyond even what we

have physical or monetary power to

change so we make dua for this Ummah and

the door has an effect but what about

that physical effectiveness that we can

have we have to limit ourselves to our

circles of influence to recognize that

each one of us has a limited data data

to Theia this circle of influence and we

have to benefit by recognizing where it

extends to and then work within that

circle and part of one of the I think

mechanisms of Kufra now in this day and

age is to exhaust all of the Muslim

resources by scattering all of their

work all over to where there's no

emphasis on the local at the local level

and the primary concern of a community

is always at the local level always

zakat in most of the books a fifth is to

be given back to the same community that

it was taken from it's taken from the

rich and it's given to the poor before

it goes into a central collection it

only goes into the central collection

when there's no one to collect zakat at

the local level so there should be a

local concern because if you increase

your local infrastructure then that your

sphere of influence increases when

people see the Muslims successful here

then Toronto becomes a model and I've


- used as a model in other places as a

way of encouraging people to do things

that's not I'm not making that up

I've heard things that are happening

here being used as examples in other

places so if we strengthen our local

communities we need to create

neighborhoods where Muslims can be our

children can be raised as much as

possible in that first model within a

society fixture where they have a sense

of Islam around them so if we create

Muslim neighborhoods where Muslims live

in the houses together buying houses in

the same areas and we literally create

Muslim neighborhoods so that people pray

fudger together they pray Asia together

they have the the women and the children

are in an environment that's conducive

to their Islam and the women have a huge

responsibility they have a huge

responsibility because you can't be

frivolous people you can't let shelf on

just take your intellect steal them away

from you know your your beings endowed

with intelligence and integrity just as

much as the men are Allah subhana WA

Ta'ala has not preferred in these things

the men over the women know there were

great women of scholarship in this Ummah

and if you study the some of the

greatest universities there's a whole

college in Alaska that was donated by a

Muslim woman that still functions to

this day Fatima Fatiha

the great Muslim Walia from fairs who

donated the entire University of the

Caribbean which has produced again and

again allama all over the spread the

message of Islam all over Africa

especially North African Andalusia we

know the foundation of the Sun Cory

University young artists ancora

in Timbuktu was donated by a woman women

had great concerns for education because

it was their children that they were

going to be putting into those

institutions and we have never had a

great and I said this before and I say

it again we have never had a great

Muslim or Muslim at that didn't have a

great mother behind them unless they

were your team and then they had a great

moral Bureau Rabia and you reads mr.

Roop his grandmother who raised him

because he was an orphan she used to

hide food in his house

when he grew up as a little boy and and

he was I'm hungry and she said let's

make dua and ask Allah subhana WA Ta'ala

if there's some that he'll give us some


and they would make Dora and then she

said let's look maybe Allah put some in

the house and they would go look

together and then he said they would

find it and he would praise Allah

subhana WA Ta'ala and he would eat the

food and he said I realized when I grew

old and I had my intellect she was

inculcating in me telecon she was

teaching me how to trust in Allah

subhana WA Ta'ala these are the kind of

women that we need that are going to to

raise another generation at Ulmer Madras

and at the tire shop on Eva Libre rappy

the mother is the madrasah she is the

school if you prepare her you've

prepared a deep people of people of

roots of people of substance and if

she's ignored and belittled then you've

ignored and belittled your own oh ma so

this is something we have to be aware of

the women have a great responsibility

and a great challenge in this age and we

need to understand what our a tradition

is and I'm not saying that we have to go

back to to you know the some kind of

madrasah model where there's nothing no

their benefit there are beneficial

things that have happened and occurred

in this time but things need to be put

into perspective and we need to realize

what are our goals the goal of education

has never been economic fulfillment in

Islam because our risk is the armor of

Allah super Hannah were to Anna

one minute akela Maharaja the one who

has suffered a la Allah will give him a

way out well Rosa woman hey Julia says

even he will provide from him from where

he is has no man hey laetus if it means

where he didn't even expect it to come

from so there are people that study for

years to be a doctor and I know a man in

in California he's from a Arab

background he studied for years to be a

doctor he hates medicine and he told me

he just did it because his father want

him to do it now he's a businessman he's

very successful and he's very devout

Muslim so the point is you don't know

where Allah is going to provide you and

the truth is this is an age in which

nobody has any ailment there's no Easter

table anymore and there never was in

reality it's an illusion because like

the Prophet said and mode to October

with a common shyrokyne adikam

that is closer to you than the

the strap on your sandal so no one has

any there's no Eman I'm into Memphis

Somalia and yes it will become an art

you have any security in the earth that

he won't just shake it up so we have no

security our security is without loss

super Hannover to Allah and the moment

is the one that your immune have so home

at Allah he's the one that get his

security he praises it with Allah super

Hannah tanika's Allah is also an muckman

there's a name of Allah and if you're

Mormon be la Allah you're a manuka yo

come in at Valaya or isaiah was sharp so

these all of these things we have to be

really start waking up we're in a deep

sleep and we're in a crisis situation

and our crises is one of knowledge it

always has been it always will be

and I'm not talking about information

I'm talking about deep knowledge that is

transformative by its nature that

changes people that makes them better

people make some people up in Mohammed

and this is where we have to go we have

to create institutions where Muslims can

learn again we need to bring life to our

massages with the Quran with the

remembrance of Allah subhana WA Ta'ala

and this is all within the possibility

of the human being because we're an

extraordinary creature and Allah has

endowed us with extraordinary gifts and

and if we turn to him then Allah gives

us a Maharaj

a way out and really I don't have more

to Sam inshallah tomorrow I'm gonna talk

just about planting seeds in other words

looking for you know what more practical

things that we can do I mean a lot of

this I'm just trying to just give us you

know an alternative perspective that's

based on my own research into classical

Islamic education and also that I had

the benefit of spending a short time in

a traditional method ASSA

so I actually could see because in in in

the Sahara Desert there's still

mattresses that are functioning the way

mattresses functioned a thousand years

ago quite literally that have had no

outside influence and although their

shortcomings to their system what I

noticed is they produce human beings and

this is the great omar bin al-khattab

they were sitting around the Sahaba and

they were making wishes and

them said I wished I had a mountain full

of gold that I could spend feasible ela

and another one said I wish that I had

all of these camels and things that I

could give to the Jews so they can ride

fisa Beulah and they asked what do you

wish for he said I wish I had a room

filled with men like Miranda Benjamin

and Albert Veda and Bilal even Rafa

that's what all my wish for a group of

men because with men you can change the

world you don't change the world with

with dunya you changed the world with

region and the prophets all nice that

have built human beings he didn't build

in fact even Hajj or Alaska Ronnie says

then Yasu role I had Ranade Hodja he

never put a stone upon a stone in his

entire life he planted the the the Kaaba

with that Hodja but he did not build

buildings Medina there's no place to go

and see the great buildings that the

Prophet Elias son left behind he left

behind men and women that transformed

the world that's what he did and that's

what he was concerned with and that's

what the Sahaba were concerned with and

so we should be concerned with

transforming our youth into Rashad and

Nisa of Allah subhana WA Ta'ala and this

is possible to do that I don't think

it's far-fetched so I've just I have a

question here that please talk about

even Hut dunes place in Islamic

education even hard on him oh Allah was

a brilliant scholar he was a Malachy

Holly he was a Mufti as well as being a

historian he memorized the model one at

Cobra which is a huge book in Maliki

he had brilliant intellect his ideas

were literally centuries ahead of his

age including the Muslim the Muslims

weren't ready to hear what he had to say

because he was talking about the decline

because he was witnessing the decline of

the Muslim Ummah and he was explaining

its reasons and it was bitter for people

so his

books were ignored for a long time and

it's interesting enough that it's the

Europeans that picked up his books

I mean Europeans actually kind of

discovered even some dude in a lot of

ways the macadam as an extrordinary book

he does have a section in there which

I've read about education and he

basically just is it's a descriptive the

importance of education and he talks

about the differences between different

locations like for instance in

al-andalus he says they were more

concerned with beautiful penmanship and

the memorization of poetry than they

were with the memorization of Quran and

he explains the reason for that is

because they wanted to create very

eloquent people and they realized that

the Quran is inimitable it cannot be

imitated so so they felt if the the

young boys would memorize a metal case

and Watanabe and and all of these jihad

poets that they would have abilities to

speak in eloquent Arabic and it's it's

worth it's been translated by Rosenthal

it's called the pro l-'azim I think of

in Manhattan and there's a section in

there it's very useful to read and

there's also been a book written on even

a hundred serial education which I've

actually read and I benefited a lot from

some of his ideas any suggestion when a

husband wants the TV in home so he can

watch three to four hours of sports

his only recreation that's not

recreation he's watching recreation but

that's not recreation you see recreation

is when you go out and and do something

that recreates and that's what

recreation means to recreate somebody

who can spend four hours watching sports

in front of the television ought to be

ashamed of himself and that's all I can

say about that they ought to be ashamed

of themselves because time doesn't time

doesn't come back time is lost man I

mean it's your capital and it's it's you

know there's like an hourglass and you

only have so many grains of sand in it

and it's dripping away you know and and

this is something if you read there's a

beautiful book for those who can read

Arabic tomatoes lemon and the ulama by

Abdel Fattah Buddha have a low a lot of

the Syrians

from from Aleppo I think he's Aleppo I

love you

he it's a beautiful book that he wrote

and you know he said walk so I'm calm I

need to be heavily he had a mahaki of

the yellow that's how he begin it with

that line of poetry that time is the

most precious thing that you concerned

yourselves with and it's the easiest

thing that you can lose and we have so

much time so we should utilize our time

and then I'm not saying that the

prophets all I said you know I mean

you're Italian to have a saying

certainly lay he was certainly Leahey

right like give a time a time for Allah

and a time for some entertainment or

something like that

Allah he's one of the names of Shaban as

well if you look it up in the dictionary

there so you have to be careful with

that but the Prophet SAW like I said I'm

said when somebody is going to a wedding

he asked I said did the unsought have

lahu and they said they said was there

loud when he said then I'm sorry you go

home and level they like entertainment

and we know the Prophet Elisha he used

to like to have some entertainment cuz

he liked to show the Jews and the

Christians that he had Fatah in his Deen

that the Dinah's are not all rigidity

and not all but our level should be

beneficial it shouldn't be wasted time

because even in Lihue there's benefit

and that's why the prophet sal i said

i'm said that a man practicing his

arrows is level but it's good and

archery is a beautiful sport it teaches

you a lot of things and the most primary

thing that it teaches you which is why

we should teach our children it that if

you miss the air the the the mark the

marma what they call the marma the

bullseye don't blame it on the bullseye

it's the false in the Rami you see so if

we're missing our mark in art in the

dunya don't blame it on the dunya blame

it on the one who's shooting you see and

that's what archery teaches you that

it's you determine where the arrow lands

and then you teach your children sabaha

what Okubo hey on roku bill hail is an

important thing because hail in the

arabic language from who yella which is

pride who yella is pride and the horse

is a proud animal a hail they say that

you know the bun Allah is is the made


a male donkey and a female horse and

they say if the female horse looks

behind her and seized the the donkey

mounting her she died instantaneously

out of shame and that's why they don't

look when they're mounted they think

it's a horse there so the the hail is a

proud animal and if you teach rokubu

hail is you learn you teach the child

cxeh how to control the nafs

because the nafs is proud and arrogant

and so you learn how to control the nos

through CSS through Ted beer and through

roku tar cap nav circulate are kabocha

you ride your nuts but don't let your

enough to ride you and then sabaha we

subhanAllah the the supplies from the

same route sabaha is swimming and those

people who are in a state of motion

their Subban is because they're

witnessing the meaning of allah subhana

wa ta'ala they're witnessing the high

yumiya of allah swimming is a beautiful

metaphor for being immersed in in this

unifying element because water is a

unified element unlike the this the the

dry land dryness is separation water is

gathered Ness so teaching children how

to swim is teaching them how to immerse

themselves in gathered nurse as as

opposed to being constantly in

separation and that's why the in the

Hajj Slidell Bihar is permissible but

say that butter is not permissible and

there's wonderful meanings in that so

throw out the TVs that's my advice you

know and I'm going to talk about that

tomorrow about TVs because TVs are we

have to stop because it's the so they're

gonna kick us out of the hall so Hyundai

Canadians have some good qualities

a few announcements from the table or
