One of the most commonly used terms by Muslims is inshallah God willing, but most Muslims don't use it correctly they say it incorrectly they say at the wrong times. If you look in the verse in sort of their Cafe it shows us when we should be saying it. Allah commanded us well at Akula Nelly Shea in in the Faroe Islands Erica of other Illa Yasha Allah and do not say that I'm going to do anything tomorrow in the future, except that you say Inshallah, so this verse, it teaches us when we're supposed to say when is it it's in the future? We don't say it for things in the past. They won't say how can we use it correctly? That we say it for things in the future don't use it for things in
the past or things that are reality and that we only say it when we truly mean it and it's become custom now and many Muslims and even non Muslims know this and that's why I buy them when he said inshallah inshallah and he like the Muslims say when you're not really going to do something you say inshallah stuff for Allah them. And this is any look how, as Muslims and I don't blame him, that is the reality of what we've done, and how we disrespected the kalam of Allah we've disrespected the Quran, we've disrespected the Command of Allah by saying, we don't really mean to do it. So these are the two things it's where if you want to use it correctly, that you say it in the future, not
for something that's a reality or something that's from the past and that you say it any when you say when you truly intend to do something, and I'm gonna explain
you say it in the future. meaning are you traveling? I'm going to travel and when we can Shala I've already traveled I traveled inshallah This is a mistake. You don't say because it's already been done. Did you praise a lot of war?
I prayed inshallah This is a mistake. Because it's it's already done. It's finished. And if I'm no see, I'm gonna pray in 510 minutes inshallah. No, I haven't prayed I'm about to pray inshallah. And he asked me now are you in quarantine what you can see from where I am? And I say I'm in quarantine inshallah. No, I'm in quarantine. I'm not gonna use inshallah here. And when I'm when are you going to finish quarantine? And about four or five days hopefully inshallah I'll be I'll be free I'll be out Inshallah, this is when we use inshallah and even some people spotted some customs. You ask them where are they from?
Ultimate Medina into ultimate muscle inshallah. And this is how you Jewish and brothers the very famous for this, I'm from Egypt, inshallah. This is not how use the yakka your Egyptian 100% You're from Egypt. There's no doubt about it, bro. I'm Egyptian, you don't say I'm Egyptian inshallah. And if we were to look and you ask me, where's his brother from? Is he from Egypt? I say, Well, I don't know. Maybe he's Egyptian. Maybe Tunisia. I haven't heard him talk at any. Maybe he's Egyptian inshallah. Here. I'm gonna use it. Yeah, no problem. Then I asked him, but when I come back, I said, yeah, he's Egyptian inshallah. No, so he's Egyptian he he clarified for me that he is Egyptian. So
this is the time another example and you hear for example, someone passed away. And we see that her brother passed away and that he died. Yeah, he died inshallah. No, no, he's gone bro. He's he's dead. Rahim Allah, may Allah have mercy upon him, but he's definitely gone. So we're not going to use inshallah like this in this way. The second
part is that
we intend to save it. So we use it in the correct timing. And we use it in the correct method mean that we it's something that we intend to do and it's become custom now and we don't want to do it
in shell or whatever that machine actually I don't really I'm not really going to do it, but inshallah you know, whatever. Just to get people to go away. And even our own children have realized this and that's why you find when they say Baba, I want to buy this toy we say Inshallah, no, no, no, I really want to Toy by please please, by really wanting
or they can say I want to go to the park after others Inshallah, Inshallah, they will please my I really, really want to go I really want to go play with my friends, because he realizes that insha Allah means no, you're not going to the park inshallah. Yeah, you're not getting the toy stuff, a lot of them. This is but look how we raised our own children. And like we said, any of them, how we use it here. We say for example, if you finish, you know, your duties that you have upon you, if you have a good weekend school, I'll take you to the park on the weekend. Inshallah. That's how we use it, right.
Even many non Muslim that's a story that really, really hurt me. I had a lady she worked with me in the school was working with in Dubai. She's Bosnian. And a very, very nice lady, very professional work. She's a math teacher. She was not Muslim, non Muslim. She was Christian Bosnian. Her husband was from Scotland, I believe. And she came one day because we're all new teachers. So she came to me because our names had come out to go into our blood test for our resident visa. And no, she had been going through a lot of difficulty because her passport she couldn't exit and for us, it wasn't a big deal was that there was a delay, but we just exit and come back in the country until our paperwork
finished. wasn't really a big deal for us. But for her she faced a lot of difficulties. She couldn't travel. She was basically trapped in the country. So what happened she was so happy and she said that to
De it's definitely going to happen. It's definitely going to happen today, and that we're going to definitely go do our blood tests, we're definitely going to start and we'll get a resident visa. She said, You know how I know? And I was like, how is that? She? She said, because so and so the Muslim brother, who was in charge of HR, he didn't say inshallah Subhan Allah, Allah, Allahu Akbar. And you can imagine, I remember walking in the hallway, she's talking to me as we were going to the bus, and she's so happy, she's telling me this, and just, you know, the shame and the hurt, you know, knowing the meaning of the verse, and then you know, seeing how the Muslims abuse this, this this word, how
he taught this non Muslim, that when a Muslim doesn't want to do something, when a Muslim is lying, that he's going to use the name of a law to just brush you off in shock. I'm not really going to do it, I'm lying to you, inshallah. Inshallah whatever. But when he was honest, and he realized it was going to happen today, he said, he didn't say Inshallah, even though he should have said because we haven't actually going to do the blood is we're going to do it today. Inshallah, there's one, we're supposed to use it here. And then I explained to us and any, just so you understand that as Muslims were commanded to Inshallah, because a law said in the Quran and the chapter 18, which is the
chapter of Alkaff, the cave, the story of the youth who went to the cave, and Allah said this, don't say you're gonna do anything tomorrow in the future, except you say Inshallah, unfortunately, the Muslims today and I had to explain to him there were a nice conversation about it, but this just shows us the reality of where we reached abusing this word, disrespecting the kalam of Allah disrespecting the Quran, and this respecting the need the Command of Allah subhanho wa Taala when we use it out of its context and use it like it shouldn't be used, and we also use it when we don't want to what to do the need to do something when we want to do something, just brush it off.
Therefore, if you're going to say Inshallah, say it properly, set when you mean to do something and save for the future things that you're going to do. Just second located on Santa Monica after lunch.
