Ito Solo is eating I'm hamedan for Allah Allah He also he ajmeri, long random NEMA And Pharaoh now in Fernandina lm tena was Idina element here carrying by the grace of Allah azza wa jal we come together in this gathering, to discuss a topic paramount importance and that being the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal and how to seek that pleasure of Allah azza wa jal, rather, but how to win that pleasure of Allah azza wa jal

00:00:47--> 00:00:54

and what better place to start seeking the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal than the Quran itself.

00:00:55--> 00:01:07

So, when I was informed about the topic, I decided that I'm going to try to make this ADC of some of the verses which enlighten us on the subject of winning the pleasure of Allah soldier.

00:01:08--> 00:01:17

So for that reason, I'm going to start with the recitation of students in Vienna and thereafter, systematically make the sort of some of the results in sort of the beginner.

00:03:40--> 00:03:51

Allah Subhana Allah says, In the levina, ermine, Verily, those that believe? Well, I mean slightly had and along with their belief, they also do righteous deeds.

00:03:52--> 00:04:37

So the first point that we could look at over here is the fact that if a person believes just the belief in and of itself is not enough for an object, it's not enough for a person to become saved from the hellfire. And it's not enough for a person to gain the pleasure of Allah as origin. Rather, if it's just a mere belief that the individual has, he may be saved from the Hellfire eventually, but he will be sent to Hellfire, at least for the purification process. And then Allah subhana wa Tada, continues, and he says what he had and those that do righteous deeds. So these things go hand in hand, a man and a person has to have the man and along with that he also has to have the man

00:04:37--> 00:04:43

which is the actions and that's why the root amount mentioned that he man is based on three things phone and what

00:04:45--> 00:04:55

that is based on speaking is based on seeing and uttering the right word, which is Chateau La La hamedan Abu hora suta. Along with that, it's also

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

it's also Ahmed and of course Ahmed is of several types. There are

00:05:00--> 00:05:35

I mentioned Iman, is the action that you do in your Salawat Ahmed is also that action that you do to actually utter the words a shadow Allah, Allah in the law, and so on and so forth. We're at a pod. And that action that you do has to always be backed up with your teapot as well. It has to be backed up with belief inside, true belief in the fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the only worthy of all devotion He is the only worthy of all worship He is the only deity that should be given all and every bit of our humbleness.

00:05:36--> 00:05:56

And then Allah subhanaw taala continues, he says, a smiley hat, law aka, these are the people. These are the people the ones that believed. These are the people, the ones that did the righteous deeds. These are the people who will vary, they're the best of all creation.

00:05:57--> 00:06:28

There is the best of all creation. Now, the word better yet comes from better overall, which means to create. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is the body and word every year, just as Allah subhana wa tada is the harlot and rhythm loop. Allah is the Creator and where the once that has been created, of course, there's a difference between help and borrow. The word called has a meaning as for borrow, it almost comes from a word that's close to sharpening.

00:06:29--> 00:07:16

So every single creation Allah subhanaw taala is seeing that has been taken from the dirt of the ground, and man shaped and formed into a shape that can physically walk, talk, look, speak, Allah subhana wa tada saying, those that do have a man and those that do righteous deed and Allah subhanho wa Taala has only given us the human beings that capability are the best of all of these creations. Every single one of them all creations that Allah subhanho wa Taala has created and then formed, eventually, Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning those that do righteous deeds, those that believe and then follow them up with righteous deeds, these are the best of creation. Now over here, while the

00:07:16--> 00:07:20

well the dilemma, the different about this well,

00:07:21--> 00:07:26

whether it is phobia, and whether it is explaining the man

00:07:28--> 00:07:31

the man in and of itself necessitates the actions

00:07:33--> 00:08:16

or whether this while here is only connecting it to the man, in either case, your brother and sister, Allah subhanaw taala has obligated upon you along with that belief actions as well. So it's not enough and it's not sufficient for an individual to say yes, I believe and then he doesn't act because Allah subhana wa tada wants it. We're a nation that acts Allah subhanaw taala after you see this man or I'm in a salon yet, so it's a nation that acts and the brother when he was introducing echoes of that action, when you do come to the masjid clean the masjid up that's action. When the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he went seeking and searching for the woman that would clean up

00:08:16--> 00:08:30

the masjid. He did it because she was acting. So we're a nation that acts and then Allah subhanho wa Taala continues and he says, just under a beam, there were companies there were companies.

00:08:32--> 00:08:38

Now the interesting thing is throughout the Quran, you will notice that Allah subhanaw taala

00:08:40--> 00:08:45

never uses the word jazzy jazzy for non for believers.

00:08:46--> 00:08:53

jaza you Jazzy, he never uses it for believers. He only uses jezza z.

00:08:58--> 00:09:26

He only uses the word Jazzy, whereas for the non believers, he would use jazzy jazzy and the reason for that is whenever you have a word that is in the format of Salah In fact, I do. Think with me, I don't want to confuse anybody. So whenever you have a word in the format of Falah, in fact, there is this concept or this connotation of both parties, it could be equivalent

00:09:27--> 00:09:30

in terms of the action being submitted.

00:09:31--> 00:09:33

So when Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:09:34--> 00:09:44

gives recumbents to the kuffaar he gives them just enough to punish them for their actions.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

Whereas when Allah subhanho wa Taala enters those that believe in Allah and His Messenger into the paradise, Allah subhanho wa Taala uses the word jezza or just a G which doesn't have

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

Same connotation. So it says as if Allah Subhana Allah is telling you two things one

00:10:07--> 00:10:10

odious slave of Allah azza wa jal one,

00:10:12--> 00:10:19

that no matter what you do at the end of it all you are in need of the mercy of Allah azza wa jal

00:10:21--> 00:10:53

and that's why when the Sahaba asked the prophets of Allah and he was certainly, even you or messenger of Allah as an even you, you will not enter into paradise because of your actions. Alas prophets of Allah and he was setting them said law in harmony alone, the remedy? No, no, except that Allah subhanho wa Taala envelops me into his mercy. So it is His mercy that will enter us into paradise. That's one. Number two, he's consoling you in that, dear slave of mine, no matter what occurs.

00:10:54--> 00:10:58

No matter what occurs when you get the agenda, I'll give you a lot more than what you did.

00:11:00--> 00:11:03

So Allah subhana wa Tada, you will Fabiana

00:11:05--> 00:11:53

those that were patient, upon the worship of Allah azza wa jal, those that were patient upon every calamity that ever been felled, and those that were patient, upon staying away from the mercy of Allah azza wa jal, the three levels of a sub Allah subhana wa tada tells you, tells me Oh, dear slave, oh, dear brother, oh, dear sister that he will give you recumbents was behaving herself without any calculations. And this is the same thing that Allah subhanaw taala is mentioning, alluding to in the source. And then he doesn't say to that, well, imagine. He doesn't. He says jezza on the recumbents. And he doesn't mention the desert yet. Then he continues on

00:11:54--> 00:12:20

to para hotel and he says Angular beam starts off and tells you near their their Lord. So he wants to connect that desert to the Lord first of all. So you understand the greatness therein? You understand the greatness of that desire, and the magnificence and the grand nature of that desire before anything, first and foremost.

00:12:23--> 00:12:36

And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala he started he said, under a beam near the Lord, in a place when they get to that place where their Lord is in the heavens.

00:12:37--> 00:12:47

And you see Allah subhanho wa Taala. He does this for a reason again and again. Allah subhanho wa Taala when he's referring to the Kappa, beta, Allah,

00:12:49--> 00:13:14

when Allah says Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was speaking of the dog, and he asked lots of hamadryad to Allah azza wa jal that he uses a dog from amongst his own dogs to go and punish that individual. Is that alone? He Kelvin milky Robic, Oh Allah, make capable upon him a dog from amongst your dog. It wasn't a regular dog that went.

00:13:16--> 00:13:24

It was a predator. When Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the grand nature of hellfire. Allah says no lie,

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

the fire of Allah azza wa jal

00:13:31--> 00:13:44

the one that has been kindled and lit. So he's trying to show you the grand nature of this desert through two things. First of all, through the wording that he used always and forever for believers.

00:13:47--> 00:13:52

And secondly, by attributing it to a place near him as

00:13:53--> 00:13:59

that Allah subhanho wa Taala he continues, and he says Jenna to add Jana to

00:14:02--> 00:14:03

the gardens.

00:14:04--> 00:14:06

As some of us know it as gardens of Eden

00:14:09--> 00:14:15

means apama it means a place to reside, an abode that is never ending.

00:14:17--> 00:14:22

And Jenna comes from the word Jenna, which means to cover up

00:14:24--> 00:14:27

so that's why you have the word Jin they're uncovered we don't see them.

00:14:29--> 00:14:32

And that's why a snake sometimes that you just hear is called a jam.

00:14:34--> 00:14:37

And that's why a shield is called the magician.

00:14:38--> 00:14:40

And the magician is not called that for that reason.

00:14:41--> 00:14:42

It's not the same word.

00:14:45--> 00:14:57

And there's a lot of words just like this in the foreign film agenda, Allah Hulu auto cover that when Ibrahim is around when the

00:14:59--> 00:14:59

when the lady

00:15:00--> 00:15:15

When the night became evident to him, he saw the stars film agenda and he, as in the night came and covered everything up. And that's why agenda a guardian is called the garden because you have trees upon trees and you can't see anywhere.

00:15:16--> 00:15:19

So Allah subhanho wa Taala says gardens

00:15:21--> 00:15:24

as in filled with trees

00:15:26--> 00:15:27

covered with trees.

00:15:29--> 00:15:33

And a lot isn't see Jenna. He says Janet.

00:15:37--> 00:15:43

And so Allah Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also mentioned that it's not just one gender.

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

He said,

00:15:47--> 00:15:49

Jonathan, he will have

00:15:51--> 00:15:53

an ear to humor on a female

00:15:55--> 00:15:57

genitalia, even forgotten Ania to whom Elena.

00:15:58--> 00:16:04

But there's two genders, that will be from two gardens that will be from gold.

00:16:06--> 00:16:14

It's almost as if they're been carved from gold, carved from gold, and near to mother utensils and everything they're in.

00:16:15--> 00:16:18

And similarly there to gentleness,

00:16:19--> 00:16:29

to gardens that has been developed from silver, that has been carved from silver, the utensils they're in and everything around it.

00:16:31--> 00:16:42

Of course, the individual that uses the gold that uses the silver in this life, in manners that Allah subhanaw taala as prohibited, may or may not

00:16:45--> 00:16:46

get to have these

00:16:48--> 00:16:59

may or may not get to taste the food in that silver, that's in general may or may not get to drink from those cups that have been made from those utensils that have been made from gold.

00:17:00--> 00:17:04

And that's why the profits are lower, it was certainly forbidden. And he said what

00:17:06--> 00:17:08

he said that

00:17:09--> 00:17:13

gold and silver have been forbidden from a nation,

00:17:14--> 00:17:17

for the male from amongst my nation.

00:17:19--> 00:17:23

They are for them in this life and for us in the hereafter.

00:17:25--> 00:17:43

And the corridor, always when it comes to the dealings with gender, especially algebra origins, Jin salado that the recumbents will always be from the same type of sin that the individual has committed. If you drink dear brother, if you say you know what, it's just gold plated.

00:17:46--> 00:17:51

Then on the Day of Judgment, you won't have that real gold. The cup those made a real gold.

00:17:53--> 00:17:58

Allah subhanaw taala continues and he says, Adam, the karma residents,

00:17:59--> 00:18:05

you know, when you're in the world, you find that today you're in a house and you're extremely happy with it.

00:18:08--> 00:18:22

And tomorrow, you begin to lose happiness in this house, you're no longer happy with it. And then a third day you say to yourself, let's move out of this place. The town, you know, it's getting really dirty here. It's becoming a ghetto.

00:18:23--> 00:18:40

It's not for me anymore. So you move out of the place and then you move to a second place. And then you move to a third place. And then you keep on moving letter Kahuna, Baba, Baba, you will move from one station to get another as the last panel data says.

00:18:42--> 00:18:47

Yo, Nana, Elena. Well, your woman you said

00:18:48--> 00:19:03

that a day is for us. A day will be against us a day we will be happy. And another day will be sad. So you go through all of these stages in life one day, you say to yourself, this is the perfect house. I've made it and I'm going to sit in here until I die.

00:19:04--> 00:19:20

Another day, something happens. You see that it's not operating the way you want it. It's not big enough. It's too small. The room doesn't have a big enough window. But Allah subhanaw taala tells you

00:19:21--> 00:19:46

it's a place where you will reside and you will never wish for any other place. liable Luna and Hashanah they will never ever wish for them to have an exchange for this place. As Allah subhanaw taala says la luna he will never in the least wish for Allah subhanho wa Taala to replace this place for them with another place

00:19:47--> 00:19:50

tragedy mentality Helena enough

00:19:53--> 00:19:56

below it are and have

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

rivers that flow below it.

00:20:08--> 00:20:12

rivers in gender, of course are of different types.

00:20:13--> 00:20:15

And Harlem Mina in lady acid

00:20:17--> 00:20:19

and her from water that can be

00:20:21--> 00:20:23

appropriated one can drink it.

00:20:24--> 00:20:27

It hasn't changed the taste of this water hasn't changed.

00:20:29--> 00:20:32

And then have also from

00:20:35--> 00:20:40

leather for milk. Imagine a whole

00:20:42--> 00:20:44

river that flows of milk.

00:20:46--> 00:20:52

Let me tell you, you know, you go a week, three days, four days, five days, and what happens to your milk?

00:20:54--> 00:21:00

Has, it doesn't taste good anymore? is bad for you. If you drink it, you may have to use the bathroom a lot.

00:21:01--> 00:21:02

Isn't that so?

00:21:03--> 00:21:05

How long does cow milk actually last?

00:21:09--> 00:21:12

Three days, four days if you don't keep it in the fridge, no more than that.

00:21:13--> 00:21:32

camel milk, however, is better. I always recommend people if you have camels that drink camel milk. It's much better at last in the fridge life that the camel milk has it's about nine days. You can put it in the fridge for nine days and it wouldn't go that unlike the cow milk and rather camel milk is even more nutritious than

00:21:33--> 00:21:42

than cow milk and that's why Allah subhana wa dialyzers and Boudin. Allah has made it in there for people and a lot of good. The camel.

00:21:45--> 00:22:06

So you know the camel milk, you'll find it has 10% more, or 10 times more vitamin C as 10 times more iron. It's in general it's better if you do a test at home if you have Do you guys have camel milk here? No camels. So how long so I guess this is not relevant.

00:22:09--> 00:22:11

Now you can import some camels go to the zoo.

00:22:12--> 00:22:15

Try for the Aloha, Mr. Robot

00:22:16--> 00:22:17

as much as you can.

00:22:20--> 00:22:21

They are trying

00:22:22--> 00:22:47

in different countries now even Western countries to try to replace cow milk with camel milk. They've been researching on it a lot. Because they're they're they're starting to realize and recognize the benefits within the camel camel milk. For that reason a lot of countries they're they're starting to make farms where they're where they have camels residing and you know, but it's a whole different environment for them. So it might take a while before they can actually do this successfully anyways.

00:22:48--> 00:22:50

So and how moleben

00:22:52--> 00:23:03

reverse that are made of milk. Let me tell a young farmer who the taste of this milk hasn't changed, they won't change. They won't change.

00:23:04--> 00:23:24

What and how many awesome Mustafa. See, I still cannot really flow like a river. But this is a special type of acid that Allah subhana wa Taala has prepared that is most of it has been purified. So it can even flow clean.

00:23:27--> 00:23:29

Imagine going into a river of acid.

00:23:32--> 00:23:44

And this is not just your average River. It's even beyond what you can think of as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned as an aim Allah, he mentioned

00:23:45--> 00:23:51

in his new Nia and how to do dangerous. So the HANA musika.

00:23:53--> 00:23:56

That the unharmed the rivers they're in

00:23:58--> 00:24:03

have been flowing and they continue to flow without a line

00:24:05--> 00:24:06

without

00:24:08--> 00:24:12

that curve that that river usually needs without that depth in the ground.

00:24:15--> 00:24:18

So the flow actually on top of the ground.

00:24:19--> 00:24:24

These rivers engender the flow on top of the ground and above those are your houses

00:24:26--> 00:24:32

above those are the gymnasts. Can you imagine you can't. That's why that's how about using safey Hamada

00:24:33--> 00:24:34

What are we doing on senate

00:24:36--> 00:24:49

when a hopper article that they're in is that which eyes haven't seen, ears haven't hurt and it never occurred to the mind of an individual to the heart of an individual Jeanette

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

and her

00:24:52--> 00:25:00

without any attitude without any barriers without anything making it flow, rather these and how they've been made by a loss of power.

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Allah Subhan, Allah

00:25:03--> 00:25:12

Subhana Allah has been made by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that the individuals like your house, you can decorate it as you please.

00:25:13--> 00:25:21

So you know, when your wife comes to you and tells you that sofa doesn't look good there anymore, you're like, Where am I supposed to put it on my head, there's no more room in the house.

00:25:23--> 00:25:30

These and how you command them, you tell them move in that direction, and they will move out of your way. So you can park your block there.

00:25:33--> 00:25:50

Whatever you want, doesn't matter, these and how has been made, so they can move in different directions. So if you want it to go, you know, 20 kilometers east, you tell it and they'll go 20 kilometers east, there's not a problem they've been made so that they can move at the Accord of the individual that resides in that chain.

00:25:52--> 00:25:53

And her

00:25:54--> 00:25:56

Holly Deena, she has a better

00:25:58--> 00:26:13

now, you see that whenever Allah subhanaw taala again and again, he says Jonathan daydreamin Tatiana, now, have you ever thought of your resort in your mind without water?

00:26:15--> 00:26:18

Have you ever thought of a resort in your mind without trees

00:26:19--> 00:26:22

without that sprinkling sound of the water

00:26:24--> 00:26:26

so that when you wake up in the morning, you can hear that?

00:26:29--> 00:26:40

Allah subhanho wa Taala knows the nature of man, whenever you want to rescue think of the Bahamas. Whenever you want an arrest, you think of the Hilton resort, you know, in Indonesia,

00:26:43--> 00:26:45

where you have the water flowing under the hut that they give you.

00:26:48--> 00:27:12

So Allah subhanho wa Taala knew how the individual is and he created the agenda in the same accord. He knew that usually when a person wants to rest, he wants to feel calm, he wants to come to rest with his nerves, he wants to be around water. He wants to be around trees Jannat he wants to be in a place where he can see from even imagine.

00:27:13--> 00:27:19

Imagine yourself right now in the Bahamas or wherever. I don't know if you guys have something like this in the UK.

00:27:20--> 00:27:22

But you do the Peak District

00:27:24--> 00:27:25

that's an inside joke.

00:27:28--> 00:27:40

So imagine yourself above a hut and below useful in water. But of course, it's a little bit different because you can tell it to go right and left and come up. It's too low. Today the water level is low, you tell it okay move up a little bit.

00:27:45--> 00:28:11

So this is why Allah subhanaw taala says genetic editing the god mentality and holiday in Africa, they will reside there in forever. And as in it's a never ending abode. It's not for one day, it's not for two days. It is a never ending a boat. And the greatness of this abode lies in the fact that though it's never ending, but you will never get bored of it. Like Luna

00:28:13--> 00:28:18

wrote the law. And now Allah subhanaw taala after mentioning

00:28:21--> 00:28:22

the jaza

00:28:24--> 00:28:27

the recumbents of this individual,

00:28:28--> 00:28:31

the one that believed and the one that did righteous deeds.

00:28:34--> 00:28:41

He then continues and he says this is the individual that I have been pleased with the low

00:28:42--> 00:28:42

one

00:28:44--> 00:28:46

and they have been pleased with me.

00:28:49--> 00:28:56

The Rick Lehman Hoshyar but this is for the individual that feared his Lord.

00:28:59--> 00:29:08

So if you seek the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal, the pleasure of Allah as the origin lies in your devotion to your Lord

00:29:09--> 00:29:12

lies inshallah tada all of us are believers.

00:29:14--> 00:29:17

It lies now in your actions.

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

It lies now

00:29:23--> 00:29:28

in you trying to stick with that which benefits you without making excuses

00:29:29--> 00:29:41

for the profits or loss of himself, always be really keen on that which benefits you when I tarjous and don't become lazy, simple to become lazy.

00:29:44--> 00:29:49

When at the edges of our worksheet, one fella to follow me fall to get avocado

00:29:51--> 00:29:52

for the Allahu Allah.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

And then Allah subhanho wa Taala at the end of this verse, he says, Derek

00:30:00--> 00:30:10

This all of this city law, all of this law of mind, all of this pleasure that I have given of mine, it's for the person that fears his Lord.

00:30:13--> 00:30:22

And the unique thing about the fact that Allah Subhana, Allah says hushai Allah, Allah says in another verse in number yaksha alarmingly bad at

00:30:23--> 00:30:58

putting these two verses together. Verily, only the scholars from amongst us are the ones that really truly fear Allah azza wa jal putting these two verses together some of the trilemma they mentioned that the greatest of all levels that you can attain, when it comes to the law of Allah azza wa jal when it comes to the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal is in seeking none other than knowledge. And that's why one of the set of you sitting in will have in front of Malik, or the lounge,

00:30:59--> 00:31:05

and he got up and he stood up, and he prayed took care of Salah Of course, nephila voluntary prayer

00:31:06--> 00:31:17

and aromatic Pacino, hula, what are the and he looked at this man, he said, the thing that you have left for that which you have left

00:31:18--> 00:31:20

is better than what you have left it for.

00:31:22--> 00:31:25

As in that knowledge that you sat and so and sought.

00:31:28--> 00:31:33

That knowledge was more beloved in the eyes of Allah azza wa jal, then you're praying that you're praying.

00:31:36--> 00:31:47

And that's why a lot of the acording including nama chef, and even others, they all considered the knowledge, the seeking of knowledge sitting amongst the majority,

00:31:49--> 00:31:56

upon which the amount of Allah the mercy of Allah comes in the melodica. Come, have fun with America.

00:31:58--> 00:32:00

The melodica come and they sit about about them.

00:32:02--> 00:32:24

And Russia comes and comes all over them. They said that this type of magic is more Beloved, in the sight of Allah than even voluntary prayers and voluntary actions. Though voluntary prayers in and of itself, it is the best voluntary action in terms of the good deeds that are actually considered a by that

00:32:25--> 00:32:28

it's better than cm, it's better than other things that are voluntary.

00:32:30--> 00:32:37

assala, but even that environment shashtri, Abu hanifa, and other scholars, they would consider this even greater,

00:32:38--> 00:32:59

because it was because of this individual seeking and then passing the knowledge that the animals got their rights, that we learn how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to deal with the children. So the children, by nature, by their existence is almost as if they pray for this individual.

00:33:00--> 00:33:15

And that's why I went on last, last profits, a lot of them. He said in that Hadith, that even the fish within the depths of the ocean, make still far for the person of knowledge, they did so because because of

00:33:17--> 00:33:29

the knowledge that was spread because of this individual. people realize the rights that the fish have. people realized how to treat the fish. people realized how to walk the earth.

00:33:30--> 00:33:34

people realized how to deal with their parents.

00:33:35--> 00:33:40

So it's as if the existence of everything is making so far for the pilot.

00:33:42--> 00:33:44

And it's such a noble act.

00:33:46--> 00:33:52

That even the angels come and out of humility put there spread their wings for this individual.

00:33:56--> 00:34:26

And that's why Allah Subhana Allah says in the action Maha Marie by the hill, Allah and as we mentioned, the connection here, the greatest level of it all as the Buddha Ma, a chef, very in his book dedicated to cellular automata Ken Lim, explained that the connection here illustrates for us that the greatest of all status is in terms of pleasure, and pleasing Allah subhanaw taala is in knowledge and seeking that knowledge and delivering that knowledge. Now,

00:34:28--> 00:34:30

a last prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sought that knowledge

00:34:32--> 00:34:39

in the color bar. You are being spoon fed almost the Quran.

00:34:40--> 00:34:58

mill legend Hakeem in a lien from an extremely wise and extremely knowledgeable Lord. Where is the wisdom in spoon feeding the Quran to Allah's Messenger? Why is it that jabril has to come down. The last panel to Allah is trying to teach you and I

00:35:00--> 00:35:19

To continue that tradition of learning and teaching, because if I was from Hannah Montana which devalues it, if Allah subhanaw taala wished he could have just put all of the Quran in the last last prophet SAW Selim said, and that will be the end of that. We didn't need to have someone spoon feeding the message to the prophets of Allah.

00:35:22--> 00:35:27

But Allah says we're in Nikola Tesla, you are being taught the Quran

00:35:29--> 00:35:53

and also in the fact that he used the word telepathy is another thing. And that is that we have to go back to that path of a delicately seeking from scholars who sought from scholars who sought from scholars who sought from scholars, all the way down to the Prophet alayhi salatu was set up so that in the middle of it all the corruptions that occurred, we try to avoid

00:35:56--> 00:36:17

Allah subhanho wa Taala. He gave the people of knowledge, the status, not just in this verse or the law, I know what I'll do I connected with the verse in the mercial luminary, burdine rhythm, whether Allah subhanho wa Taala, he gave that same status, rather an even higher status, when he said, show you the low and no

00:36:18--> 00:36:19

one

00:36:21--> 00:36:34

remembers that Allah subhanho wa Taala has been witnessed, and the angels and right after the angels, he says, will only read and those that have knowledge,

00:36:36--> 00:36:38

standing for justice.

00:36:43--> 00:36:44

So imagine

00:36:45--> 00:37:00

a group imagine being amongst the mark, imagine being amongst the group of a people whom Allah subhanaw taala puts in the same testimony as himself and the melodica.

00:37:02--> 00:37:04

Sherry the law no

00:37:05--> 00:37:08

matter what would you call a member,

00:37:12--> 00:37:13

and

00:37:15--> 00:37:26

Hadees that is extremely popular in this regard, is the Hadith. For the prophets of the long run, he was sitting down, he says, Yes, me too hard. And I

00:37:27--> 00:37:51

mean, Cooley, holofcener rule that this knowledge is being carried, it will be carried. The fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala. He compares or he puts the witness of his own, and the melodic and the angels together with the people of knowledge. It's as if he is showing that these people or knowledge are the ones that are upright.

00:37:53--> 00:38:15

A couple of months ago, or a couple of weeks ago, I was giving a talk and a person got up and started asking a question. And his question was, he is basically questioning the people of knowledge. He was saying that, don't you think that all of the confusion that is in the world today amongst the Muslims? Don't you think it's because of the people of knowledge

00:38:18--> 00:38:33

that you have one shape he comes, He gives one opinion? And then you have another one he comes and gives us another opinion? And then you have a third opinion? It's as well. So don't you think that the people of knowledge are the ones that are responsible for this?

00:38:36--> 00:38:38

Well, of course, the answer is no. Because why?

00:38:39--> 00:38:52

If it wasn't for the same people of knowledge that took from the profits of the law, it was settlement and passed the dean down for us. If it wasn't for the same people of knowledge than what

00:38:55--> 00:39:01

then we wouldn't have the team. And if we go and try to play

00:39:03--> 00:39:38

and try to mess with the credibility of these people of knowledge, in essence, we're not doing any more, as it hasn't alluded to, we're not doing any more than playing with the credibility of the dean. Because upon their shoulder was it passed down to us. And that's why the profits of salami says there. Yeah. Meanwhile, this knowledge will be carried by every group of generations that will come when coolie Holla Holla from every successor by the ones that are upright.

00:39:40--> 00:39:59

So usually, the most upright of them all are the people that seek knowledge. So if you seek your brother, your sister, the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal, I invite you to join the ranks of those that seek knowledge. I invite you to join the ranks of those that do not

00:40:00--> 00:40:14

Find the fit for them to be amongst those that are intimate. And a great opportunity, as the brother was mentioning is the course that is coming up. But I also thought, though this was an ad, it wasn't planned. But I'm just making the ad anyways.

00:40:16--> 00:40:23

And with that being said, I'll conclude my talk if anyone has any questions they can ask. You mentioned the golden silver, golden boys.

00:40:25--> 00:40:26

Yes.

00:40:28--> 00:40:46

Just to clarify, the brothers mentioning that, I mentioned that gold and silver are considered forbidden. So is it gold and silver. For the silver, the men are allowed to have no more than the ring

00:40:47--> 00:41:16

no more than the ring. So if a person is wearing a chain, it will be considered impermissible. If a person is wearing anything else like a bracelet, all of these things are considered impermissible. However, for the woman, gold and silver are considered permissible entirely for anything that is considered Xena. For anything that is considered beauty. However, anything other than that, like utensils, pencils, pens, or any of those things, they're also considered improvement in permissible gold and silver, I like for a woman as well.

00:41:24--> 00:41:30

The brother is asking about practical advice, I give practical advice, the author courses, fairly practical.

00:41:31--> 00:41:34

Yeah, the practical advice would be to,

00:41:36--> 00:42:04

first of all, look at what's available for you, I can give you a lot of advice on how you can go about and seeking knowledge and which levels to take and all of that. But the first and foremost, see what's available for you. And then based on that you can decide what you can do. Secondly, when you do seek knowledge, when you do seek knowledge, do your brother, your sister, after you do finish seeking that knowledge, don't just read the book in the class and then put it put it away.

00:42:05--> 00:42:14

After that, never coming back to it again. You see, Allah subhana wa tada when it came to the Salawat, before the Salawat, he put sunon for us.

00:42:15--> 00:42:18

After the Salawat he puts in and for us.

00:42:19--> 00:42:22

When it came to cm before cm, he had worked for us,

00:42:24--> 00:42:33

the month of chabanne were there as fast as well. After the month of Ramadan, he also put the six days of Shabbat for us as well.

00:42:34--> 00:43:08

So you'll notice a constant initiative is that when Allah subhanho wa Taala wishes for his slave to go into the state of worship, he puts a pretty face and something to finish it up. So it's not that as soon as you get up from the act of worship, you leave and you do nothing else. You see that if you pick up your books, you prepare yourself for the class, you prepare yourself for the course, and you're ready to intake whatever the teacher or the instructor or the ship is going to be delivering that heart will become even more receptive.

00:43:09--> 00:43:51

Thereafter, if you don't just pack your books, rather, when you go home, you also begin to review that what you learned and right after. And that's the best time some of the real. And I mentioned that it's not even good to take notes in the class. So that during the class, you give your full attention to what is being delivered to you. And after you're done with that, as soon as by the way only practices if you practice it all the way. As soon as you're done with that, you go home, and you try to write down everything you can remember. And you'll notice, by practice, this activity will become more and more you know better in your mind, you'll be able to recall all of that

00:43:51--> 00:44:17

information that you had gathered in the lecture and then thereafter, you wrote all down. So just as Allah subhanaw taala has, you know, legislated first voluntary actions after prayer after Seon of Ramadan, Allah subhana wa tada wishes first to do this in every act of worship. And as we mentioned, seeking knowledge is no more than an act of worship. So after you finished seeking, go home, don't pack your books, read review, right, consult.

00:44:21--> 00:44:24

You mentioned believers who haven't been

00:44:25--> 00:44:26

following the path

00:44:30--> 00:44:39

as a purification process. Now, if you come across, you know, friends or family or acquaintances who said, Well, I'm a Muslim, you know, as

00:44:41--> 00:44:43

I've said, I'm going to go to heaven.

00:44:44--> 00:44:46

What do you say to them?

00:44:50--> 00:44:57

Not a new No kidding me. So you know, so how would you tackle that situation?

00:44:59--> 00:44:59

The

00:45:00--> 00:45:08

Whether it's asking about a person who, for example begins to argue in this manner and says that

00:45:09--> 00:45:36

a person that is a believing individual, yet he is MPs, he doesn't pray Salawat or he praises otherwise but not in a good manner. Or he does. He does other head on actions. This individual will go to Ghana, the Hellfire and then will be taken out of Hellfire after he's purified. So someone comes to you and says, You know what, I don't mind going through the purification process. Of course, the fact of the matter is that any man will been unhealthy.

00:45:37--> 00:45:56

That Eman is always between fear and hope. So this person has a problem when it comes to hope. So when he has a problem when it comes to hope, you have to cure it by giving him the description of Hellfire by giving him things that will make them fear his Lord more work.

00:46:04--> 00:46:13

The brother is asking if seeking knowledge would be considered the top thing to seek a last pleasure so long is that knowledge is acted by

00:46:14--> 00:46:17

acted upon it would be considered the top.

00:46:18--> 00:46:19

As for

00:46:20--> 00:46:56

the individual that doesn't act upon his knowledge. It came though in a hadith there is life but the meaning is correct man is dead. Well me as dead who then misdemeanor law a law order that whoever increases in knowledge, it doesn't increases doesn't increase in guidance. He's not increasing from Allah subhanaw taala except in distance. So So long as that knowledge is put together with action, this is the tip of the iceberg. This is the best thing that a person can do. Well, so low LSAT, Dean, I'm committed to it. You
