Sheikh Ibrahim Osi Efa

Advice and the Shamil Tirmdi

All of what humanity knows is not much

Not much of not much

Knowledge has its threshold – you have to pay your tax

The tax of knowledge is to teach

The word for man in Arabic Rajl comes from the word Rijl which means leg and a man is a person who is upright

Its upon you to travel to find knowledge

Ignorance is a lack of knowledge

People do what they do on the basis of knowledge or lack of

The religion revolves around people of knowledge

Our Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is not illiterate

He (peace and blessings be upon him) was in a society where literary was not valued, the Oral Prophet

The word katba (to write) means to gather

Iqra means to recite, the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “What shall I recite?” (Not, I cannot recite) That what it means

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) asked Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala to show him truth as truth and so he could follow it

We don’t take religion from non-believers

This affair is beyond us

We take from classical sources

We are a people of justice we don’t do what they do

Sending a rocket indiscriminately into people, where does this come from? Its like a plate of pork and saying Bismillah (You can't do that!)

It took the companions (may Allah be pleased be them) 15 years before they were given the order to fight

Classical Islam is trying to put yourself into a context

Our disease is love of the world, that’s why people do (things with) drugs

Wrench the world out of your heart

And you’ll love to die, so you could meet your Lord

The ultimate way to change our condition is by taking the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) as an example

He (peace and blessings be upon him) is the cure for every ill in this society

The earth was folded up for him (peace and blessings be upon him) and he knew what would happen to us

There is no tongue better than the tongue of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)

Someone who doesn’t posses a thing can’t give it

Ibn Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “O Allah make amongst the few.”

Some scholars would be so busy learning and reading, they would ask their wife’s to feed them

Imam Ahmed (May Allah be pleased with him) relates that he saw Allah in his dreams 99 times, if this is the amount he saw Allah, how may times did he see the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)?

If we see the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) in our sleep and we shall see him in real life

Some people have seen him

Its about cleansing the heart until it manifests

Imam Ahmed (may Allah be pleased with him) saw Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala and asked how do we approach you? Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala said, “By my book.” “With understanding or without?” Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala said, “With understanding or without.”

There are blessings even if you don’t understand

Angels search for groups of remembrance

The sham’il is looking at the essence of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)

We have to inculcate what he (peace and blessings be upon him) inculcated

(Why do) we speak about Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala what we don’t understand?

Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) said, "Our inability to know Allah is the correct understanding of him."

Without the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) we would all be on the wrong path

Imam Tirmidi (May Allah be pleased with him) was a student of Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (may Allah be pleased with them)

When you don’t begin with bismillah the action is cut off, hacked off, (removed from blessing)

If you go to the Middle East know about classical or traditional Islam

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Isnad is from the Deen.”
(Isnad – chain of transmission going back to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him))

If there’s no chain of transmission, there’s no Deen

Then why would the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) take from Gibril (upon him peace)

When the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) passed the lote tree, Gibril stayed back and the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Is this what a friend does to a friend?” Gibril said, “If I was to go forward one iota, I would combust.” Where did the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) go into the divine presence and then the prayer was given to him

Take good from the beautiful

Symmetry means a lack of change

Halq means physical creation from which comes from a state of non-existence

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “I don’t fear Shirk for you.”

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is created in order to remind, he is the greatest created act ever, every created act comes from him

It is as if the day of judgement is his day (peace and blessings be upon him)

A childs hair will turn grey, as the Quran tells us

If Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala showed some of his countenance to us, everything would be scorched

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is the intermediary, you cannot get to Allah Subhanu wa Ta’ala except by the door of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him)

We have to understand language

He is the embodiment of perfect Character, (peace and blessings be upon him)

He was a walking Quran, the Quran is uncreated

When you see people walk like him (peace and blessings be upon him) then our situation will change, overnight

On the day of judgement he is Ahmed because Allah Subhanu wa Ta'ala is the focus that day

Why wouldn’t you call him Syed?

The problems of this world are because of the people of the sunna and its our fault for letting people go astray

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “If you find good thank Allah, if you find other than that blame yourself.”

He (peace and blessings be upon him) could never say a bad word that’s why he used the word “other”

Don’t blame anyone but yourself

The world is a reflection of yourself

We will be raised on your own, driven to a place on your own, judged on your own
When we will driven it will be in silence and the only sound you’ll hear is the sound of the feet moving up and down (like the sound of clothes rustling)

All the eight people who described the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) are children

The companions (may Allah be pleased with them) couldn’t look him in the face

Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) couldn’t describe the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) except by the word beauty

When the women saw Yusuf (upon him peace) they cut their hands, Aisha (May Allah be pleased with her) said if they had seen the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) they would’ve cut out their hearts

12 questions where asked by the companions (May Allah be pleased with them) all of them where answered by the Quran

When bedions where in town, the companions (May Allah be pleased with them) would gather people to see the bedions, because they would ask the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) questions

If someone shows you love, how can you go against his word? How can you disobey?

Love isn’t on the tongue, its on the heart

We love him but we don’t want to meet him at the mizan (scales that will weigh up our good and bad actions). We want a light judgement

The bridge goes over hell (we have to go over hell to get to heaven)

One day, Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) was looking for the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), she looked everywhere and found him in Baqi (graveyard). He was praying and in prostration he was saying, “My nation, my nation.” He kept repeating this. (He is concerned about us)

Take your knowledge from men not children

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was 6 foot tall and Umar ibn khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) was 8 foot tall

One of his miracle was that anyone who walked with him, didn’t seem taller than him

On the 12th Rabi al awall, his (peace and blessings be upon him) birthday was in the cave of Hira, when he got the revelation

Sura Hud and Sura Waqiah gave the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) white hairs

He is a universal Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), so that he can be attractive to all nations

Ali ibn Abu Talib (may Allah be pleased with him) used to shave his hair because he said that between each hair was a sin

He (peace and blessings be upon him) has a body beautiful, it was in perfect proportion
