Sheikh Ibrahim Osi-Efa

Legacy of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) part two of two

We came here to hear people speak, not to teach

Islam has been reduced to entertainment, in these countries

The role of the great people is to indicate to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)

People are busy with the dunya, that is where Abu Huraira went

(Abu Huraira (may Allah ta'ala be pleased with him) passed the market in Medina, he stopped and said, “O' People of Madina, how incapable you are.” “What do you mean?” they asked. “The inhertance of Muhammad peace be upon him is being divided up. Why don't you go and take your portion of it?” He replied. “Where is it?” the people asked. “In the masjid,” replied Abu Huraira. The people rushed to the masjid. Abu Hurayra waited there until they returned and asked. "Whats with you?" The people said, "O'Abu Huraira, We went to the masjid and there was nothing that was being divided up." Abu Huraira asked them, “Did you not see anyone in the masjid?" They said, "Of course, we saw people praying Salat, reading the Qur’an and some people discussing permitted and prohibited.” “That is the inheritance of Muhammad peace be upon him!” replied Abu Huraira. Narrated by Tabrani.)

Not everyone who smells, obtains the fragrance

Literalists take words literally, the people of the market, sought money

These are not the people of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)

Did we find what we where looking for in Sheikh Abdul-Aziz’s speech?

Islamic knowledge is about embodiment, not about information

We see people not books

Knowledge is about people – people embodying something

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) bequeaths people, who leave behind human beings

Knowledge is taken from people not books

They pass on hadith in hal (state) before maqall (speech or teaching)

The condition of the acceptance of Dua is to turn to Allah Subhanu wa ta’ala, its not movement with the hands

The path of the people who have blessed

Things are known by opposites

Jews = knowledge without action
Christians = action without knowledge

You cannot be someone who has knowledge until you act on it

Ask Allah Subhanu wa ta’ala for beneficial knowledge, that guides you to him

Knowledge is two kinds, knowledge in the heart and knowledge on the tongue

Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “Knowledge is here, here.” and pointed to his heart

Ta’alum can also mean to put aside knowledge

We have knowledge and don’t use it

It’s a universal law, where do we put it? Below our feet

Knowledge taken must benefit
Imam Malik (may Allah show him mercy) said, “knowledge is not many narrations, rather it is a light that is placed in the heart.”

Knowledge can be our intercessor

Ibn Raslan said, “How can we get out of the current problems, without knowledge?”

Abu Huraira spent two years with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) after the opening of Haybar

We put knowledge aside

How many of use have made intentions?

Imagine that you’re dead and you are resurrected then asked what did you learn for Allah Subhanu wa ta’ala? What would you be like?

Think about what your answer will be

Allah Subhanu wa ta’ala gazes at the heart

The first blessings to be asked about is knowledge

Not a single act of worship is valid without knowing what you are doing

Islam does not have an exclusive club

Seeking knowledge is obligatory

Which one of us is married and we don’t know the laws of marriage

If there was a problem with the Salat, who knows how to correct it?

I don’t believe that our current station is what Allah Subhanu wa ta’ala desires for us

We seek for Allah, to act on it

Men are people of uprightness

We cannot access knowledge without men – keys
