Our Holy Prophet (SAW) has a hadith:
ِمْن ُحْسِنإْسلاَِماْلَمْرِءتَْرُكھُ َمالاَیَْعنِیِھ
“The character of a fine Muslim is for the person not to interfere in what does not concern him,” says our Holy Prophet (SAW). If there is work and it does not concern you then do not interfere in it. You look after your own business and do your job well. This is what the order and recommendation of our Holy Prophet (SAW) is for people and for Muslims. Because when you interfere in other works, you are interfering in what you do not know, and it neither benefits you nor does it benefit others. Your faith decreases.
فَا ْسأَ ْل بِ ِھ َخبِی ًرا
“Fas’al bihi khabeera,” says Allah Azza wa Jalla. (Sura Furqan:59) “Ask the knower,” He says. See if there is someone who knows and let him tell you. You learn whatever you need from him. If not, if you go ahead and attempt to look after useless things, sometimes it harms the person spiritually. You need to follow what our Holy Prophet (SAW) tells to be Islam, to be Muslim. It is End Times now and people are looking at useless things. They are interested in things that do not concern them.
The hodjas (clerics) come about looking at things they have no idea about, and they are playing with Muslims’, with people’s faith. Our Holy Prophet (SAW) prohibited this. Everyone should have a specialty and should look at what they know. They should ask what they do not know to those who know, to people concerned with it. Do not make a judgment, a fatwa, about something you are not concerned with according to your own head. And hodjas, not every hodja can give fatwa. If you are to get a fatwa, there is the mufti. You get it from him. You follow the hodja when you go to the mosque and you offer your prayer. You listen if he gives a sermon. However, if there is something to be given a fatwa about, the hodja says it himself anyway: “Ask this matter to the mufti. He can give you a better answer.”
However, since present-day people are ignorant they are also giving fatwas, they are also giving judgments, and they do this very comfortably. But as we said, that time they are being disobedient to the order of our Holy Prophet (SAW). Let us do the things we know Inshallah. Allah gave everyone separate specialties. Everyone should know their specialty. Let us not go beyond our limit Inshallah. May Allah grant us all to abide by this advice, by this order of our Holy Prophet (SAW) Inshallah.
Wa Minallah at-Tawfeeq. Al-Fatiha.
