The books of #Hadeeth were compiled hundreds of years after the death of #ProphetMuhammad (pbuh). In the lecture #MuftiMenk explains the reason behind delaying in #hadith recording & #compilations and how all imams took great care regarding collecting hadith. He mentions different incidents of IMAM AL-BUKHARI while collecting hadiths to maintain its purity and authenticity. Mufti Menk presents the tips by which how authentic hadith can be determined by following the chain of hadith narrators as hadith was recorded in a sophisticated manner in this video clip.
In this video clip #MuftiMenk reminds us that we have a lot to learn from the #Sahaba radiallahu anhum (the #companions of #Rasulullah sallAllahu alayhi wa salam we need to bear in mind that these companions were chosen by Allah Subhanahu WA Ta’ala. He chose them for many reasons and divinely. He obviously knows that there will be rules and regulations that will be sent down over a period of 23 years and a strong crop of men whose faith is solid are needed in order to set the first example.
The sacrifices of the companions of the prophet Muhammed (saw) inspires us how they were steadfast on the Deen during adverse situation through their two qualities:- Listening and Obeying Immediately and we should follow a path to tread upon especially when we’ve seen that they are successful so the most successful of all the #Muslimeen from the #Ummah of Muhammad sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam in the earth and the #hereafter.
#MuftiMenk mentioned that there was something about the hearts of the #Companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam that was different from all other hearts and this is why Allah chose them; selected them and became pleased with them look at these qualities:- #honesty, #trustworthiness & #truthfulness. They were companions because their hearts were special what was so special about their hearts they had honesty. The quality that is loved by Allah is to stand firm upon #justice even if you are losing everything.
Mufti Menk Quotes “Let’s develop our qualities, let’s develop our love for Allah for goodness & justice even if we lose absolutely; If we have Allah in reality you’ve lost nothing and if we’ve gained everything material and lost Allah in the process wallahi we have zero, we have lost everything.”
#MuftiMenk enlightens some key points in the short talk regarding the Prophet Muhammed (saw). Allah has indeed favoured the believers by sending or when He sent a messenger from amongst them to them. SubhanAllah, it was a great favour teaching them goodness, teaching them the wisdom and purifying them. The purity came in the form of purity of worship; purity of social behaviour so much Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam brought; the great messenger- the final of all messengers of Allah (swt).
“Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam, the man of peace he brought about #peace & #goodness. He is the one who taught us to be at peace with the entire environment. It’s wrong for me to break a tree; It’s wrong for me to burn the grass and without a reason; it’s wrong for me to cut down and chop a #tree and in fact it is so blessed for me to plant a tree that would perhaps provide shade and fruit to any human being even to an animal this is Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam.” – Mufti Menk
In the lecture #MuftiMenk addresses that our beloved prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam has the greatest level of #character and #conduct and his behaviour is not just exemplary but it is absolutely perfect with Englsihs subtitle. In the light of that, Mufti Menk adds respect of a #woman to fulfil her rights, to honour her is not based on our whims and fancies it’s based on what Allah and His Messenger have declared belongs to her.
“Am I upon the sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam when it comes to addressing women? Do I think before I speak to them that I am about to utter words; these words are they harmful hurtful or are they the best of words? Allah has given us a tongue and He has given us a brain. We need to use the brain before we use the tongue.”- Mufti Menk
