Yeah, well mostly
I wanted to start actually with a question What time is there a short prayer here to Soylent for the
next was like the appropriate dimension charlo Tyler This is the attempt is to make this some sort of a discussion, some reflections some lessons on the
as far as we can get
before the slot arrives. And the idea is not really to share an academic proceeding with you, but some lessons that are drawn from the comments of the scholars in the past, and then the gems the treasures of guidance that are embedded in these ayah. Clearly, we're not going to be able to do justice to the IRA, we're just going to be looking at some sprinkles of lessons from any of the if that we start talking about now have shake up the message Hello to Allah begin, start us off with the first
winner from the last lotto Sara Marla rasulillah. While it was mine, I
wanted to start by congratulating Walmart on performing hedge
if anybody's seen recently that's not normal haircut. So it's not called the haircut at all. It's called a basket where we're from. So but inshallah, as no one mentioned shallow, we're just going to kind of go through the IOD discuss some of the lessons and point out a few inshallah,
points of benefit that we can extract here from the
beginning with the loss of power tiller begins with the hurdle. Of course, the disjointed letters that Allah knows best the meaning of Baja, las panatela goes on to then say my ends are now illegal for me.
This is addressing the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And before we actually get into the IOD, kind of an overview of sort of Baja is that Surah Taha from beginning till the end is actually an address to the prophets along the center. Now, of course, there's lessons that are extracted from there, by extension and addresses all of us that addresses all of humanity, but it's a very direct dialogue between Allah and the Prophet sallallahu sallam.
And specifically the there are two main
issues at hand or there are two main objectives in terms of this, this discussion or rather this address from a lot to the prophets a lot. So the first is the prophet to inform the prophets a lot a Salaam to give him a solid foundation based on with based on which he can continue his mission. One thing that we'll come to discuss in greater detail as we move forward is that of course, the mission of the prophets. allottee symbol is something that is of the utmost importance that we summarize in one word, the Dow the mission that he had to convey the message of truth to all of humanity. But what's very important is that one needs to be informed, dow needs to be solidified. With a
foundation it needs to be tied down to a foundation, it's very important, dow Otherwise, the just a human element, the emotions the the desire to want to achieve more and more, just that natural human ambition that we all have built within us can sometimes lead that our spin out of control and kind of become like a kite, the string of which has been cut, it just floats off. And it takes on a whole nother form altogether. So dow needs to is based on some thing, it needs to be tied down. And so this gives the profits a lot of them that foundation for his message, the foundation for his Dawa, first of all by addressing him directly as we'll see in the chat. And towards the end of this call,
once again it engages him directly. But other than that, another very practical method of giving someone a foundation based on which they can work with is to present a precedent to present a role model to present a situation or someone who is worthy to be looked up to to be emulated, you present that person you present that situation and somebody can base his or her efforts off of that precedent that you offer. Similarly, what we find in the sutra is Allah subhanaw taala presents the example of musala his salon in very great detail, very, very deep in a lot of detail very extensively. The incidents occurred that occurred with musante. Some are mentioned here in DeSoto.
So this is the first issue at hand. This is a lost power Teller, giving the prophets a lot of foundation a precedent.
Based on which he can proceed with his dollar. Secondly, the second issue at hand is this type of a mission. This type of a task, it's very difficult. Obviously, as you can see, as we all know, it's a very difficult task. And it can be rather frustrating as well. Anyone who's ever worked with any level of community before I can tell you for a fact that it can tend it tends to get a little frustrating at times. So Allah subhanaw taala, in this surah also addresses some of the frustrations, some of the concerns of the prophets Allah please send them because at the same time while the Prophet of Allah Azza wa the Sunnah was an extraordinary, the most extraordinary human
being to ever walk the face of this earth, Allah subhanaw taala still instilled within him, the human elements, there were emotions, there were feelings, there were there were times of joy and happiness, there were moments of sadness and frustration and difficulty and adversity. So here in the sutra, Allah subhanaw taala, will also address some of the difficulties or the adversities that the prophets Allah also faced. So in the very first in the second ayah, here, it was found out Allah says, mountains, Allah, Allah, Allah did not reveal this or upon you Lita, Sha, so that you would be so that you will become unfortunate you will become, you will be what would be a good word for
placed into very difficult circumstances, very difficult circumstances so that you wouldn't be ruined, so you wouldn't be lost. So you wouldn't be an unfortunate human being, you know, like Chicago Law. What it basically means is somebody who I don't like to use this word, because it has certain theological implications, but I'm using it as a figure of speech, you know, when we say somebody just has a run of bad luck, somebody just cannot catch a break.
Right? So somebody who just can't catch a break, that is shocking, that is Chicago, every single thing, everything goes wrong for this person that is shut power. And it means that this person, that's just the natural displacement of this person that on every around every turn, they run into trouble. So let's say this was not the purpose of revealing the fraud upon you, so that you find adversity so that you find difficulty. So you're constantly living in adversity, so you're constantly living in, in very difficult circumstances. That wasn't the purpose. Rather, what was the purpose? Last counterintelligence? Yeah,
just about the first
three things that came to my notice, in regards to how I was told talk to his messenger. So
the first thing was the word of mouth.
The word mind Arabic, of course, it's used to negate something. But it's more particularly used to negate or to refute an idea. In other words, somebody has an idea. And, you know, there's one thing to say the Quran was not sent to put you in difficulty to put you in turmoil. It's another to say, No, that wasn't the reason at all. In other words, somebody has that idea. And then it's being negated. And this is what we find in the seal of the soul of that there were some leaders of flourish they came to the prophet SAW Islam and they said, Look, ever since for iron came down, down to you look at how, what kind of bad luck you're having. Look at what kind of trouble you got
yourself into. People are making fun of you gonna have the status in society anymore. What did this plot ever get you? You know, so this was the kind of trash talk they were doing. And a lot of comes to the defense of His Messenger and refutes that claim. Now,
the first thing that popped out at me was the word not that's been commented on. The second is the word alayka. Because with with the enzyme with sending down low for under two, prepositions that are used, there's Elijah, and alaka, right sent to you, and it's translated sent upon you, right. And in English, we kind of think of the two as you know, interchangeable, you know, the Quran was sent to the messenger the Quran was sent upon the messenger was the difference anyway, but in Arabic actually makes a pretty big difference. The word on a Corolla It comes with you, right? It illustrates obligation, something you have to do. So part of the Veronica part of the lesson and it
is alleged telling the messenger say something, it's not just that the Quran came to you, it came as a responsibility. And it's that responsibility that people are saying that you're just you have to carry that burden. And it's put you in such difficulty. So less particularly highlighting the responsibility of carrying on. That's the second thing that stands out. And the third is the really the connection between the first and the second madonsela article for Alameda in LA, tequila, MDMA Yasha, Yahshua rough translation, you've read about the first part of the ayah. But the second, it was only sent as a means of delivering reminder to those who will have fear it's a rough transition,
okay, for those who will have fear as a reminder to those who have fear. So what's the connection between the coroner being tough not be putting the messenger in difficulty and on the other hand, it being sent as a reminder to those will have fear. One of the most profound commentaries I found on this was by lousy
Ramallah says something really, it just struck me really hard. He said that, you know, the Quran itself was a gift to the Messenger of Allah. And he used to actually be used to long for the ayah to be revealed. And when the IOP wouldn't come down, he would actually be in a state of sadness. And that's described in some places in the Quran. And even the messenger very subtle, some would rush to memorize the Quran and he was told to come down like that to come
with me. So this was something that was in the Quran itself wasn't the difficulty is this an interesting comment that he made, the coloration of itself was not that difficult. The difficulty was this amazing message that Allah has given you, when you omit Omaha slicer and deliver it to the people, they don't accept it. They don't take it something so amazing. And yet these people still don't take it. And you know, the messenger has given so much mercy in his heart, that he wants people to accept it, because he wants to save them from the hellfire. Right?
This this, this character of the messenger that he just gets so greed, when people don't accept the message, it puts him in difficulty. And Allah says no, don't put yourself in difficulty, this is only going to be beneficial reminder to who has fear. And the people who are listening to this message, and they're not getting anything out of it, what's clear about them, they have no one inside, they have no fear inside which a messenger has no way of knowing that's a little longer. So his only job is to remind, but he gets worried about two people. So he gets shoved out on himself. Right. So in that particular problem, and this running theme of Ben reminder will only benefit
someone who has some kind of fear inside of them. It's a recurring theme in the salon, you know, to the point where we even get to fit our own eventually, you will and this is the lesson to draw from before we get to the next child love is when you try to remind someone, when you try to remind someone, you know, first of all, don't give up on the messenger the subtle Salaam is told by that kid in NEMA and Tomodachi. La him, he will say just you remind your job is to deliver a reminder, you're not sent as an authority over them, you're just there to remind them. Now who will actually benefit from the reminder, the one who has fear inside of them that fear if there is an ounce of
fear inside a person, maybe that reminder won't help them immediately. Maybe it'll take them a while before it kicks in. But what it will eventually serve to benefit you shouldn't be depressed, that somebody didn't take the benefit of your reminder, your job is just to remind. That's the that's the the important lesson. Let's talk now
about the next higher than zealandia. Allah was summarizing, rather and tying it together with this argument that aleris origin is presenting. One of the things that I wanted to talk about and you can take on from there inshallah, is that,
you know, the people who don't accept this message. I talked about this often. Sometimes it feels like sales. You know, you're trying to convince somebody of the message. And so they're the customer and you're the salesman, right? But you know who's in power, when in sales, who's got the control the customer or the salesman?
The customers got the power. He says, I don't know, I want a discount. I don't know, I saw a better price over there. You know, so the customer feels like you can haggle with the salesman. This is exactly what the kofod felt about the messengers from Aleppo, they saw that he's so desperate to deliver the message ever seen a desperate salesman? Right? When you see a desperate salesman? What do you feel like you can do now?
You can squeeze him a little more and get more out of him, you know, press him a little and embarrass him even you can do that. So, you know, they felt what do you know, to the you know, for you to you know, they they felt maybe you give a little we'll give him an alliance telling them No, no, no, this is not something to be compromised. And his desperation is only because he's worried about you. And what he's trying to give you is not some small thing that he's trying to sell you. This is coming from way above Tenzin on demand. Hello, can
you know this is coming from the one it's being sent down from the one who created the earth and the highest skies. So who do you think you are thinking you can bargain and you can talk like this about this revelation. So they're being put in their place by the next ayah of the status of this revelation and the nobility of history can take from talking about the desperation of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. It was something that honestly I I personally feel that people
especially in our times, are not able to comprehend. They don't really realize how concerned the prophets a lot he said of Mars, because it's something that we really haven't seen we this is something it was unnatural. His level of concern for humanity was unnatural. Even the eyes of the frog very powerful unlock above your own knapsack. I mean in one place in the Ferrari by selling the profits a lot of them while I'm back Africa be installing him in the mountains in a Camaro. Convey them.
It proclaimed the greatness of your Lord. He's obligated, you have to do it. But on the other hand, think about it. That same a law is also then consoling the prophets along with him, telling him to take it easy. La La kabocha, you will kill yourself. You'll destroy yourself. Take it easy. I mean, it's amazing. He was so dedicated that he lost power into himself and saying, That's enough, easy now. Think about that level of dedication. It's unbelievable. How do you salonica like he's just constantly just worrying about you Allah, the Hadith of the Prophet, in the Shema, in, in mentions about the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that humans are constantly concerned. Most of us in our lives
are constantly grieving over people's situations, later on will have never had a moment of rest. In the process of being elusive. He He explains how he himself felt about trying to talk to people convey the message, that same salesman analogy, but how concerned he was how desperate he was that people need to realize this truth. He says methylene blue, he says my example. And your example Karachi, Lin opa dinero. It's like a man who lit a huge fire. For Jonathan jannetty. Well, for Russia, the little insects you ever seen the fire or the bulb, the light bulb outside, all the little mosquitoes in the insects, they they fly towards it. So all the little insects, he starts to
fall into the fire.
And the Prophet Alayhi Salam says that's the example of you that this huge fire is burning and raging the fire Ville and everybody all of humanity's rushing towards it. And he says why and if you don't behave, Chico, he said, I'm trying to grab you from the back of your from from behind, I'm trying to grab last hand, just placed it on you. But the profits, a lot of them said want to definitely do it. But you're slipping right through my fingers. Even the way he says it definitely do not mean that you're slipping right out of my hands. And he's crying while he's saying this. I mean, the deaths, the concern of the profits also was unbelievable. We have not seen that level of
dedication. And so exactly, this is what these are out there talking about this and how the profits, a lot of this has been canceled. And this is the extended message to the rest of humanity that this man's concern is is what makes this man so absolutely amazing. But realize he's not desperate, because, you know, he's got a broken product and he needs to get rid of it. And he's losing money by the day. No, no, no. But this is absolutely amazing. This is being revealed being sent down from a law who created the earth who created the highest of the skies, the highest of the sky. So how you can even see.
So things that you see the ground in front of you, and those things that you don't even see the highest of the heavens and the skies, he created everything. He's the one sending this down. So once again, like like brother, no one mentioned, don't judge the product based on the desperation of the salesman. Because you'll be doing a disservice to yourself, not to him, you don't harm him, you don't hurt him, you only harm and hurt yourself. So listen to some of the
highest guys, but there will be higher than that. A white man
the very next time he says I mean imagine the height of the sky is something that's bad for humanity even now, especially in our times deal with astronomy and whatnot, right the the expanse of the universe, and unless as enormous as the sky is this message comes from the one that not only the one who created but the one who's even above that
that was above his throne.
And then you know, the idea of
ownership superiority, kingship is one thing and then to have that complete ownership. So a whole nother element to the grandeur of Allah subhanahu wa T will not fill out
everything is the ownership of a lot talked about then the the knowledge of a lot talked about, you know what people will say?
If you say something out loud, and this is something
beautifully, I want you to repeat it actually I think it's best said by you, but
then he knows the rough translation is he knows the secret and that which is even more hidden. So what does it mean secrets already hidden, right? So what's the different secret and even more hidden? What's the lesson here? I want you to share that thought with each other. There are two different words used here in the Arabic language sin and alpha which come from Sofia huffy. So they both we in English, like you mentioned before in English will just translate them as secret and hidden and it's like what's the okay same thing. Potato, potato, tomato, tomato, right? But it's not. It's two different words sim and alpha. what the difference is that in the Arabic language you
know, when you say secret
Like when you share a secret with someone, like I told Norman that, you know, I told him a secret like, there's gonna be ice cream served after the lecture to my ear. I thought was funny. How about ice cream for everybody delivered in a Camaro
Shawn was coming. So you have to get me back for the hydrocone. So sim is like when you share a secret with somebody you tell the person, hopefully or coffee is something so think about a secret that you share with somebody to share a secret with somebody Don't you have to at least speak it? You must have said it. You You verbalized it. Fine, you didn't say it loudly you sit in a corner you said in his ear, you cup your hand around your mouth. You took all these precautions to make sure he was the only one who did it. But you said it. You verbalize it. You spoke it
lufia or huffy is that thing which you haven't even verbalized, which still in here, which is still in here. So think about that. Allah says that Allah alone is the one who knows the secret mean the thing that you might have spoken, but very quietly secretly spoken. Okay, that's understandable. At least I said it, at least I spoke it, it became something. But Allah says what alpha, but even those things that are rolling around in your head, that are rolling around in your heart, the thing that you're sitting there, you're just thinking to yourself, how confident Do you feel nobody knows anything about what I'm thinking right now. So I could be sitting there thinking man, Mashallah his
haircut is awesome. So I'm thinking that inside, and I won't say it because I already made fun of his haircut. So why would I say it? All right, this is gonna be a recurring theme as well through tonight. So I didn't say it out loud. I'm just thinking it inside. But I was his ally even knows that which is hidden inside of him.
Now, you know, in the introduction, which Vanessa was talking about the foundation for download, setting the right foundation, you notice something, this beginning passage, which is a conversation between the line the messengers of Allah,
is Allah telling the messenger what the purpose of the Quran is to deliver a reminder, but then the rest of the eye Arthur entirely about himself
entirely about what he owns when he knows and it concludes Allahu La Ilaha Illa which is the foundation of everything right?
Along with that Allah Allahu Allah will smell
the most beautiful of names exclusively. Now. This entire entire passage is what we wanted to make sure folks in our audience today understand, the foundation of Dharma is first getting to know allow well yourself, unless even in the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam who is most aware of Allah subhanho wa Taala when he's being trained for download, the first thing he does, is thoroughly re introduces himself, thoroughly introduces himself. And as we go, now when Allah says, Why
didn't you hear about the news of Musa? Now what Hanif is really interesting, different from Nevada from from other words, actually, it's in Arabic is used for something new. And you know, when you hear something that you already heard before, but you hear it another time, you're like, man, like, I've never heard that before. Right. So the messenger is going to be reminded from a loved one in the legacy of Masonic Islam in a way that will make him feel like this is the first time he's hearing. It's going to be something that refreshes him altogether. This is the work I need. Why
didn't you hear about the news of new sinuses fresh news? musante salah and now notice you know that you all know the story. He saw a fire a sapphire above on the hill, right? Who was he with? You remember?
with his family? Right? It's called the activity when he said to his family who you stay here in the islands to Norman It is I who sees a fire no doubt. The language is really amazing. You know why? Because Indiana's phenomenon implies nobody else could see the fine. If you say understood, Alan, just as I saw I saw flame. Then what it means is I saw it and there's a possibility others may have seen it too. But if you say any,
when you say it like that in the Arabic And you know what it does? It creates exclusivity. Right, exactly. In other words, nobody could see that fire except Susana, Sarah. He didn't even say to his family. Hey, do you see that? I'm gonna go with it. He didn't say I said, Oh, yeah, I see it. And you know why that's important. That fire was designed for who to see.
If anybody else sees a fire in the middle of the desert, what are they gonna do?
They're going to go towards this. But the only one who's supposed to go there is Busan, Islam. So India, look at the perfection of Allah His words in the honest lunala. In other words, the what the messenger is being taught, by the way, remember, even though he's talking about Moosa, Who's he talking to, actually, the problem.
So he's being told that this journey you took only you could have taken, nobody else could have taken that journey. This was on the journey was entirely for you, and whatever stops you had in this journey so far, we're all prepared.
And they were all part of the plan. And that's what we're going to see in the life of Saudis. So he gets there. He gets there to the, you know, Panama when he arrives finally and a number actually indicates it took a while to get there. It took a while to get there. And when he finally gets there, what is the new idea? A call is made? He hears yahooza imagine you go somewhere strange. The first thing you hear your name in the middle of the desert. And then where did that come from? Who's there Indiana? It is no doubt I your master first line and they take your shoes off in Knoxville, Tennessee. So you're in the sacred valley of tour. Can you imagine this scene? It's incredible to
think you know, and by the way, is there a similar incident in the life of the Prophet sallallahu Arneson. Is he going up a hill somewhere? Is he in someplace and all of a sudden, he gets introduced? What am I talking about? The cops.
The messenger is listening to the legacy of musavat who is he thinking about? His own legacy, his own beginning so ally introduces himself and by the way, when Allah introduced himself to Mohamed Salah Lahore, and if you remember the iOS, the
Epcot Bismillah Coronavirus, me became the the father
introduced himself as well. When he introduces himself to Musashi, what does he say? In the
same introduction? Well first, understand this first, first we learned an introduction to Allah. And the next most important lesson to learn that you are out there in Allah is you are the slave and he's the master. That's the first lesson. And as master he has authority, he shows his authority take your shoes off, you know, command immediately command was the messenger also given a command in the beginning. It was the command read command from the very beginning to acknowledge the authority problem. And then let's talk about the next just most remarkable item.
Yes, can you elaborate on the word rub? Because I've seen it translated as provider sustainer. something other than other than in addition to Yeah, we have a I think we both have conversations about the word love in our courses, but just roughly the word rub you know, the easiest way to approach this topic to keep the conversation going inshallah is to say my opposites things are known. This is a principle in English in any language. And of course, in Arabic also, too often a Shia will be allowed to have things are known by their own right by opposites things are known. Now in Arabic, the opposite of Rob is
the antonym the opposite of Master is sleep. In other words, we know that we know how to save the core meaning of love is actually mastering now, it has other meanings tied to it, you can call them auxiliary meanings, additional meanings, but that doesn't take away from the, for me now, what are the additional meanings? Like, you know, the sound of another lexicons will tell you and medic was one of the game, these are the additional meanings, in addition to what mastery is now, in addition, just briefly, medic means owner. Malik means that part of the meaning of you can interrogate that he can sell a movie, right, which means owner of that house right now. But you know, not every owner
has complete authority. Like, for example, we own our homes. Can we make any modification we want in our home? Are we under some other authority that tells us what we can? Do? you own your car? Can you do whatever modifications you want to your car? Do you have to follow certain guidelines? In other words, you have ownership of what's missing? authority, you don't have authority, but a lot of is someone who's manic and say you. So he has ownership and has authority. They're both combined together? which is not the case with us. Not not most of the time, then on top of that, I will not be the one who ensures its growth. Do you own something you don't take care of? Does that ever
Like you have something you don't take care of? happens all the time. Right?
Like here, right?
So but the point is, you know, you
love being shows, not only does he own it, not only does he have authority, but he also takes care of it ensures its growth. That's what comes next sustainer and provider is where they come from, then we'll tie it in wise if he stops taking care of anybody even exists. So much. So it's so dependent on him, it can even exist without it. So these are some additional meanings of love. Let's move on and see we're going to talk about the next time. So the next day up, as he mentioned, that and I talked about in the very beginning. One of the basis of the sutra is to talk about this very essential topic of data. And it gives us a foundation for dollars. So the very first thing we saw
was that the Dow revolves around the core of the Dow the beginning of the Dow the majority of our data needs to be to a lost power tower when I send a photo memento
that needs to be the focal point of our Tao all the time, whether it's within the Muslim community or in the non Muslim community, it does not matter. Our Tao must revolve around the concept of reminding to Allah, for the sake of Allah. Simply put, and the second, we start inviting to something other than a lot, we have a problem on our hands. And this was very, this was instilled within the MVR themselves. And so from the very beginning, the prophets, this is this was a very first initial instruction to them. So that's why you saw this occurring this manner. The second thing, as you mentioned, that we're going to see this musante set out right now is that, like I
mentioned, our need, our dollar needs a foundation and the foundation is like you mentioned, familiarity with the last panel without knowing what you're talking about. Now that we know where you're inviting to a law, you have to be familiar with the law, you have to know what lost power is. Now in the next Dyer, which is number 13. We actually see some very other essential or rather necessities of successful dollar, what I'm after took this The second thing
Allah subhanaw taala says and I most definitely have chosen you and I and only I have chosen you once again that exclusivity is there, because the repetition of the aroma is there. One after took I only I have chosen you. This is the second thing realizing when a person engages in Dawa and a person is carrying the message realizing this is a higher calling dow should never be looked at as something frivolous, something small. What you do on the side, if you get some time? Sure. If you don't get some time, it's a burden. It's a problem. It's a no, no, no. Dow is how we identify, look what he's been told, well enough, don't you and I only I have chosen for this dollar for this
mission for the spreading of Allah's word. So, this is a very amazing this is a higher calling, this is a very high selection, this is the highest of selection, that anyone can be given first time here. So as you mentioned, so the next thing that needs to be there Now, listen very, very attentively and carefully. pay full attention. pay full attention, because this is a this is a sophisticated or exaggerated form of the verb to listen. So pay full attention to that which is being revealed, what is being revealed everyone in our case, or indicates in the process of selling the product. This is the other thing that needs to be connected to the product. The dye needs to be
listening to the product, he needs to be reading the product, he needs to be studying the Quran, he needs to be thinking about the Quran, he needs to be talking about the Quran, he needs to be intimately connected with the book of Allah with the Kalam of Allah, if he's not the Tao of once again spin out of control. It's what keeps us grounded. That's what keeps us focus. You know, there's a beautiful subtlety in this is
that I, I know we're overlooking a lot of things, but I just can't help myself. But here this one
is Dr. In Arabic is commonly translated as choosing
Arabic also there's HDB.
Right? And then later on
Western Western Africa FC scenario. So there are different words used for choosing the outcomes from hype. It comes from a no hate me, good, good. Allah chose his messenger.
In this case, and of course, in our case, we will not use the word str implying, I see something good in you. That's why I'm choosing
if the artist to make a choice based on the good you find in that choice, that's what that means. You know why that's important. One of the people around them, the people around them, as soon as they declare that they are messengers, they start criticizing, and they start pointing flaws in them and start using the nastiest language with them. And the law says you don't have to worry about them who sees good in you? I do. You don't have to worry about anybody else. Now. You have to not concern yourself with so on the one hand, there's a concern for the other, which was in the beginning, biological Khurana because the messengers concern, so I showed them for others. But now there's the
attack on himself. And you know, it's not it's human. Like we said, there's a human element in the personality of every messenger because they're human beings. I think he was thought was around when everybody's calling you crazy. When everybody calls you a liar. When everybody calls, you know, a troublemaker. Is it possible the thought might cross your mind maybe they're onto something? You know how they define abnormal psychology in society nowadays, in modern psychology, they say when you do something against the majority, you're considered abnormal. It's considered abnormal behavior. That's my definition. Every messenger. Every messenger did something against Who? The
majority. Now in your school, the majority of people call you crazy.
They call you crazy.
You have to know, you know, you start getting depressed and they all think I'm weird. I'm crazy, you know, and somebody has to come and tell you, No, you're not. You're okay. And somebody says you're evil, you're bad, you're This was that the other day somebody has to come in. So who is coming to the aid of the messengers, alarm?
And, you know, this is why, you know, in the last quarter, which is great, I have
a lot didn't just say I'm gonna, you know, I'm gonna move on. He says, I'm gonna watch Hulu development.
We know the messenger demand is also important, his mind gets challenged by the constant, you know, the talk of the people. So the second, the more important lesson, though, that should never be overlooked. When the messengers are chosen for that what what is the vehicle by which they made that what they have to listen to the revelation carefully, so they can deliver it carefully. And that's what's missing today in our, our, our Dallas for our free.
Our dow has become quite unfree. You know, we don't invite people to book we invite people to ideas and presentations that we've kind of organized ourselves or watch out for it is meant to be dow itself, you know what that could be? You know, it reminds
me of what a reminder fears the promise column. So now, this one, I will talk about this one little bit, and then you go until
this is the one that really gets me. Have you ever met a celebrity,
like a really famous person, and you meet them and you say, Hey, I can't believe I got to meet that person. You know, people who must not listen. So it's not a Muslim thing. It's anonymous. And you meet someone famous a politician, you know, a TV celebrity or a scholar or whoever, and you meet them and your soul mate. And maybe they have lunch with you or they talk to you, or you gotta take a picture with them or something. And you just get you know, who I just talked to, you start twittering it and texting it, no one live right now. You know, it's a big deal when you're with someone important or famous or something like that. And even from the old times, whenever you
introduce yourself to someone or talk, you know, one time you know who I met, meaning it becomes a burning memory in your mind that you met someone famous, you talk to someone important, even today, if you meet someone important and there's a picture of it, you know, people do with that picture.
They frame it in their house. Oh my god, you even shook hands with the President. You did that you did this. You understand what I'm talking about. Now who is talking to who's eating?
So he's, he's talking to a lot Do you think he will ever forget? Is that possible? When you and I need a famous human being we never forget who is he conversing with? allies only there's no way he will ever forget. And even he is told what a famous salata he decree you establish the law so you can really remember me
In other words, even he who will never forget allies origin even he can only truly remember a lot by what by Salah, this is Dollar Tree. How much do we remember Allah insulin?
How much of us a lot is actually thicker? How much of it is actually the this this is that you know, somehow
Luckily, they you know, they, they pray they show off to people that hypocrites and they don't remember a lot except a little meaning they do pray, but their prayers are empty from remembering, remembering a lot of them so he introduces himself in the neon La La ilaha illa Allah ferragni look at all of these things. Now you don't have a lot of course the fundamental introducing himself, then for goodness enslave yourself to me, in other words, except me and not as master accept yourself as a slave. And part of being a slave of a lion part of worshiping allies making some that's part of it. And you know, part of it is part of it is other things, but which one that is separate from
anybody especially mentioned it anyway. Well, can you solidarity even though it is part of what already, for Whitney, if you're a slave, the sod comes with it's part of the package, but a lot highlights it particularly. Again, if you understand the cut, the message of the Sula is training for a daddy, if this is training for the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, how much more is in a training for us? You know, you we get the youth especially guys we get caught up in speeches and giving talks and have a thought and pounding the podium and coding.
And you know, mimicking speakers even if you know, we get caught up in the stuff but you know what's missing? remembering a line Salah what foundation that allows messenger how what foundation is a billion first, you know, and where do we stand in comparison? This is a really powerful Reality Check that's being delivered to us take it away here.
So and as brother Norman mentioned, and we were talking
About the foundation for our for delivering the message in the foundation for the during the training for the day. So as you mentioned, the first thing is that realization I and only I am a law, the law says, law, law law, there is absolutely nothing or no one worthy of worship except for me. Allah says, far Good evening. So enslave yourself to me. As he mentioned in slave the relationship there is a master and the slave, meaning total obedience, complete obedience. That's it. That is the the mission statement of the believer, and especially of the diary, that you know, this is, is a very important point to understand here. Because the DI is delivering the message
verbally. Now will I say no enslave yourself to me, now come into complete submission. That's the synchronization of what's being said, and how that person is living his life. And the effectiveness of power comes from how you live your life.
rhetoric only gets you so far. screaming and yelling gets you so far, fancy vocabulary gets you so far. It's the way you live your life, which is the essence of a person's novel, how you carry yourself. If I give a ask everybody a question? If I give a lecture about a flop, and then I get up from here, and I call somebody stupid.
What do you go home with the impression of that was pointless? I talked about a clock and slap somebody that you know, why would I listen to this guy about a club. So it's very important to embody the message.
So enslave yourself to me while optimist solidarity and then establish the salada prayer for the sake of my remembrance. So as Norman mentioned, that's a very, very important point. And another thing I want to mention about this connection between saliva, why does Allah say established Salah as my remembrance and uses the word thicket as well? There's a correlation. There's a connection between the word salah and Victor, we obviously know because Allah has the clinic, but there's something else. What does Allah tell us about the Quran another place and I love the name named Karuna law clear man standing up walking forward and sitting down while it will be him in on their
sides lying down.
Think about Salama.
How do we how do we perform solo? What are we doing solo? We stand? What if I break my leg and I can't stand them? What do I don't bring anymore? How do I prevent everybody sitting down? What if somebody is paralyzed or laying in bed in the hospital? They can't even sit up to pray Do they still perform Salah? How do they pray, line down?
They can applies in all
times in all situations of life. So law is no different. The one committed to the message of a loved one committed to delivering the message spreading the message of a mind somebody who's committed to a salon or
has been stabbed. There's an open wound in his stomach. He's lying is fading in and out of consciousness. The years the other being called he tries to get up so what are you doing? You have a hole in your stomach? What are you doing? He says I have to perform so let's look at you
You're bleeding out right now you're dying What do you mean you have to go perform so since I remember the Messenger of Allah Allah is the one who doesn't perform Salah has nothing of the demon is
no salado do. I have to go pray, no choice, the Prophet sallallahu sallam, in the last few days of his life, you had the very nice thing.
You know, you know, like when somebody can't walk on their own, they put their arms around two people's shoulders and you kind of carry him. The processor would go first a lot like that in the process that I'm David said about him. It's mentioned in the hadith of Shama. And when he would stand in a group of people who's a little bit taller than everybody else. He was like really awkwardly tall. It wasn't like a, like seven feet tall or something. But he was just a little bit taller when he would be standing in a group. So because they were carrying them on their shoulders, that he thought you mentioned that his feet were dragging on the ground.
But he still went first of all.
So the persons committed to a solid welcome is selected.
Let's do one more thing. We come to the end. Okay.
So the importance of Salah. What's the urgency?
Why should you know you're told to do something about the time but you don't rush to it?
You know, you and this is a common thing. When you're told something good, you say yeah, I'll get around to it eventually. You know, I really should do that next semester.
You know, or as soon as I graduate, or soon is this. A lesson in
the hour has pretty much arrived. it's on its way it's right there. For us the more immediate form of the sentence these miracles
It's just around the corner. And the preparation for it is in the eye before as what
is selected the degree, if you want to be ready for the hour that's coming. And the only reason you don't see the end, the urgency of it account will be
I'm almost hiding it. He didn't say I'm completely hiding it. He said I'm almost hiding it meaning there will be signs of the hour coming. Right and the the signs are described by the province eyes on them. So let him say I completely hate it. I'm giving you some signs and the more signs you see what should increase
your salon should increase your dicussion increase. That's what's supposed to happen. So he says he tweets
and some almost hiding it so that every person can be given what they aspire, what they made effort towards. And this is the final point I want to make for you guys. And
I met this brother today yesterday, ironically,
he asked me over he says, brother I saw I saw this video on YouTube. And I'm just really paranoid that the job is coming. And
you know, all the signs have been fulfilled. And you've seen the dollar bill. It's got one eye on it.
And then he gives you the whole nine yards, right? I was like, Yeah, and I just mind my eyes bugged out. I was like, what are we going to do?
You give me this whole thing about the Freemasons taken over and you know, the signs of the hour being established. And, you know, this and that everything's coming together rather, you know, and big, big
troubles on the horizon. And the job is already here, blah, blah, blah. And I said, Okay, you know, what, what should we do?
What should we do? I don't know, I think we should leave the country.
out, we should mix a lot.
How would you know, Ally's telling us the hours arriving? You should get ready, how should you get ready
via last name and make slot, make proper slot, the sub, they will, there's nothing that will prepare you better for the challenges that are ahead of you. Then the prep. Allah is talking about prayer in the battlefield. A lot of somebody is talking about prayer in every circumstance.
This is something to be taken very, very, very seriously. You know, I didn't even plan it to be this way. But man, this is turning out to be a really strong pitch for you guys to attend meaningful prayer. And I really hope you do.
Anyhow, you want to put something to
wrap up basically all the way till the very end, the very last page of the surah number 132. Since we are focusing on the topic of Salah at the end of the surah Allah subhanaw taala comes back to the topic of salon as well. And especially because this is somewhat of a family environment. There are families here, it's very important to understand is that once again that message of Dawa comes again, but soheila lost power tele mentions one aspect of Dawa, which is the most important but also the most easily overlooked? How common is it? Once again, I'll kind of use the example of that. That brother that random I mentioned about that that brother who you know is giving the foot buzz and
giving the hell up and giving the lectures and he's going around and he's doing and he's doing this and he's doing that. But what does he ever sit down with his own younger brother younger sister? Does he ever sit down at home himself? You know the diary who's going around talking to everybody? What about his own wife and kids? The sisters who are attending the Iran study circles for 20 years now. And Mashallah have a very thorough understanding of a lot of the Koran. What about what do they share out of that at home with their own families, with their sisters and their friends and their cousins and their own relatives? So here our last panel, which reminds us of our first and foremost
obligation, and also once again, teaches us a very important lesson about fulfilling that obligation of law. A law says what more I lack of discipline
speaks directly to the prophets who love each other and commands him. What would you tell your family? Think about this for a second, okay? The prophets a lot. He's always preaching to all of humanity. He's concerned with everybody.
Jamia kapha, telling us all of humanity, all of mankind, but Allah subhanaw taala doesn't allow him then to outsource the Dow or the education of his own family. He says no, no, no. The process I'm gonna be like, Okay, listen, since I'm taking care of everybody. How about somebody takes care of my family. Makes sense. No.
You tell your family to pray. What would
you tell your family to pray? That's your job. You don't get to outsource that. And it's something I served as the mom
Have a community. in communities you have families and it's a very common predicament. we outsource the Islamic the basic Islamic education of our children to other people. We outsource it.
You know, the police on the movie side, the moms on the chef's on whoever it is. he'll teach my kids I need Botha, he'll teach my kids how to pray. And it's becoming a whole industry. But rather, we ourselves are responsible for teaching our kids the basis of the DNA, when you are not in first force of first level of education for your children, when you do not establish yourself as an educator for your own children later on in life, when they become teenagers. Now you want to start imparting Islamic advice or telling them what to do they don't listen. Then you come to the mom, first year my son doesn't listen, my daughter doesn't listen, my kids don't want to listen. Well,
because you will never know you never establish yourself as their religious Dini educator in their life, you're their parent. So when they still need to buy clothes, they come to you, when they're hungry, they come to you, when they get hurt, they come to you, when they want to talk about something they come to you religious knowledge or affectional that your will need that from somebody else. You establish that precedent you establish that relationship. So a lot tells the process of what would
you tell your family to pray. Now how will you be effective and commanding your family to pray was forbidden
was COVID once again, this word is forbidden. This is an exaggerated form of the word Saba.
And the word Southern literally means to tie something down.
To tie up something was done to you be very extremely regular in particular, upon it. On top of you'll be very watchful over your prayer. You'll be very regular about your prayer, you'll be very punctual about your prayer. That's how it'll be effective when you tell your kids how to pray. And when you tell your kids to pray, that's when and how it'll be effective. This is one little humble piece of advice that I often give to families is that you know in the mustard the time for your family is fixed 915 solid hr 950 to operation
even if the man doesn't show 915 silicidation we have to break down for brother time is fixed.
But at home
Do we have time ticks? We know where our time starts I'll give the example of Lola we no longer time starts at 1230 and answer time comes in at four o'clock so we know we have like this three and a half hour window and we'll pray whenever we get around to it right now it's lunch right now it's food right now the phone right now the email right now the kids game and we just kind of whenever somebody gets time wherever they get time to just hurry up completely free. You need to pray your time should be fixed at home.
What did the process of them tell us one of the most beloved acts to Eliza salado Allah
as soon as the time for Salah comes in. If you want your children to learn how to pray, have your son called the oven at home when the time for other incomes go everybody make will do everybody get together in the living room or whatever the room where you have enough room for everybody to pray and everybody lined up and performed. If the husband is home the father is home the son is old enough to leave the congregation pray and jump out of time for Salah at home needs to be fixed if you want your children to learn how to pray. When we show them a lackadaisical attitude about Salah
then that's what they learned.
So this is where the last panel so that tells the prophets a lot of view commands your family to pray and you'd be very extremely regular in particular about it.
No, I am completely overwhelmed. So I'm going to talk about time has come a lot is coming. So less than shout out to
all of you for listening. I hope this was of some benefit to you. melasma will enlighten our hearts with a reminder of the fun and take the good of what was said and entered into our hearts and habit implemented in our lives. Anything that was said that is incorrect or, or untrue. Remove it from our hearts and Milla forgive us for any mistakes that we make. Love and welcome feel for unpacking. When I finally what
