This part is the is yeah, there you go. Now we're back back in business. So this part of the Seelos. To me my favorite part of telling.
I don't know why I enjoy the monkey part more than than anything, I think because there's a lot of similarities to the, the Mechi period of the prophets of Allah, Allah He was he was still in his life. And ours were more similar to that part of his Dawa, to be honest at this point in my assessment, then we are to his Madani period. And, of course, that's a whole different study, to be honest, to go into details of why that is, how it is how you see it. So I find that you can take a lot of lessons from the 13 years he spent in micarta, he saw those 11 what he went through, and we can we can apply a lot of it to our to our lives today. Now where I am right now in the sealer. The
I want you to imagine the profit audience. I'm running down the mountain, because that's basically where I am right now. He's going down a hill, he just encountered something that he doesn't understand that he cannot comprehend. He was told things that don't make full sense to him at that moment. He saw some at least not yet.
He doesn't know exactly what he encountered, you know, who he encountered, you know, his name is Gibreel. And you know why he came in you know, the whole point of all this, it's very clear to you and I it's very easy for us to you know, to enjoy this story because we know exactly what's happening. You almost feel like you want to intervene and say don't worry, it'll sort Allah, this is all gonna be fine. But for him, he doesn't know. anymore. Sorry. He said when he stood in front of the sea, he had no idea it was gonna happen next year, all hunky dory when you're telling the story because you know what's going to happen next, but he doesn't. You didn't know at the time and then
he didn't know who he had just encountered. He didn't know what was happening. It wasn't clear he had some idea but he was not sure. To be honest. He thought the worst when he came right down that mountain he entered the house of Khadija he said well I left a cushy to either NFC I was afraid for myself that this is some form of punishment where I've done something wrong or I was scared yeah Khadija any had by the way, I just thought there was some had no ego that would deny him or would deprive him of saying that. He didn't feel that he couldn't tell his wife that he was scared that he was he was frightened. He found that very normal. Very easy, just came out. I was scared and honey
dougela who I know would answer him and she would say hello hola he now you Zeke. Allah Hua No, indeed, Allah subhanaw taala would never punish you, you would never go go against something that that you would like would never harm you ever. And then she would explain to him why he's where we left off last time. She explains to him why.
And she says a number of things. And she used a number of statements that I think we should really take time to think about because these statements are who Mohammed bin Abdullah Ibrahim, was before he became prophets of Allah aliotti. CIBJO sembler. This, this is him before prophecy. We're going to see the continuation of this throughout the rest of his life and this is what will hold you in your place as a Muslim for the rest of your life. But this is who he was. This is what defines him as an individual way before he became a prophet. For God I'm sure like Zeke Allah Who other than in Nicola del cielo rhyme. What took Sybil my doom? What will kill? What to eat will hoof What wife
what to eat, you know, even harder, there are three generations each one of them has one of them a bit different. There's the one that I chose for our halacha. Today, it's very simple call in the characteristic of him. You strengthen the relations of kin. You're someone who does sort of time you don't sit around waiting for your relatives to look you up or to ask about you. You go and ask about them. You're the one who searches for their for their well being. You're the one who goes and visits visits the person who doesn't seem to want to visit you. You're the one to pick up the phone and speak to them when they don't want to speak to you. You're the one who'll go and say let's let's end
this feud. Even though they may be at fault, and you're not, he's the one who will do that. And why because he understands that the importance of family it it outweighs bye bye bye by far any problem that Dounia brought forward any problem that dunya and he created for you in your life between you and a loved one with you in a family member is worth nothing yeah and when you compare it to the to the value of Summit, the Rahima family of strengthening those any, we don't think about these things when we were young. We got to be a lot of things become personal. But then when you grow up and you have kids, and your kids figure out or find out that you don't speak to your to your sibling or you
don't speak to your aunt, you don't speak to an uncle or a cousin. How do you explain that to them? How would you explain it to them? What do you tell your children? How can you explain to your children how do you how can you convince your children to put family before everything and above everything in their lives if you don't do it yourself? In Nikola Tesla
Your right hand that defined him. So Allah Allah said and prior to prophecy, that's what he was.
In Nikola Tesla him what took Sybil my doom? Someone who has no money, you offer him from your wealth. You see, he was not poor out of your circumstance, by the traditional definition that you and I know many, he can't make money. No, he made money. He had a good amount of money, he made a decent living on a Southwest. He took care of his family, but he chose that whatever extra money he had, and sometimes it wasn't the extra money that he had, he would use it to take care of someone who can take care of themselves. What I mean or you can call it someone who was just lost in life, there are people it's not that they're poor. My Doom is someone who has no money to Cebu meaning
either you give them money, or you teach them how to make money.
Kelly's you carry, you carry someone who can't carry the responsibility on themselves you're carrying you carry the responsibility of someone who can't seem to carry the responsibility of themselves. Some people they just lack, they just lack that they don't seem to know how to do it. They have a job they have a decent way of way of making making money. They just don't seem to know how to manage it properly. To keep on making you have some of that you must have someone like that your family the person who continues just to mess up and make problems and causative in essence is how they are they can't seem to get it right. What do we do we get we get frustrated with them. Then
we start to mistreat them. We speak down to them we're never happy with them we never accept anything about them. When the prophets I send them What did he tell you carry them the word in Arabic is you carry them it's a figure of speech but i love it I use it in English because it's so beautiful. You just carried them he says if they kept on falling and you're carrying the more time it will kill this is permanent. So I said and prior to prophecy. I don't know I don't know what else we can talk about. What to create by when you have someone come to your house.
You treat well.
Your visitors and your guests
what to leave what to return well who someone who's in severe need. You're there for them. You have their back. This is what Khadija saying how many many here can can say that their wives will say that about them the day they pass away
an evil and evil laugh
I think about it what's the point? What's the point of living a life once you pass away after inshallah long along well lived life. If your wife can't say that about you?
If her if her honest opinion about you is not this. And it goes both ways. You have an opinion about your wife as well. But since he was only a saw to cinema husband, that's what she saw in him. This is what she This is how she saw her husband. No, no, you're someone who does 12345
So Allah Holly earlier so I do Salam, right? What do you know? I don't know. It will help. No, it will help. There's a word that means more difficulties, misfortunes. Just the general difficulties of life. Life is it's a roller coaster ride, ride every day, there's something new. It's never easy training you help people when they're going through their difficult times. What do you know? I don't know why but at least it was a boon for her and maybe you already saw it was
he calmed down when he heard these words. He was shivering before that. The shivering part is documented in the Quran. Yeah, you hold Muslim mill. Yeah, you hold on to the second that Allah subhanaw taala me the one who came running down the mountain asks for someone to cover him to give him to give him clothing and blankets Modesitt is when he had the piece of clothing sorry Muslim This is the clothing and when you have the blanket he's asking for the cover me cover me cover me in warm me he was freezing out he saw this away because it was so cold outside. No, because that's the level of anxiety he was at at that moment.
was so difficult he had he encountered something out of this world literally out of this world. You bring out he said I'm came to him not live in a form that he could accept. No, he came to him the way Allah subhanaw taala created him 600 wings, he closed the horizon in front of them.
And he comes in he starts hugging. Hugging. When do
I don't even know you. You're hugging? It's not a it's not a fun hug. No, it's a hug that he feels he's going to die.
And not once not twice, three times he doesn't read doesn't know how to read. It's not his fault. It probably hurt him. I saw the sentence like they couldn't read the written text in a thorough intro. But that's not what he meant. Did you believe he didn't mean that and we'll talk about in a moment. He didn't mean read written text? No. He was preparing the prophet Ali Southampton later learn what it actually meant today recite the five verses and leave him and the Prophet alayhi salatu salam went to how does he deal with this? He runs down the mountain goes to Khadija. And Khadija would tell him no, don't worry, none of this is shot. Why? Because you do 12345 Allah subhanaw would never
ever punish you. She believed in him before he believed in himself. Khadija believed in the Prophet It is awesome. Maybe a few moments before he did. And I'll prove it to you. That wasn't the end of it. Khadija didn't just say that and let things go in her mind under her breath saying yes, of course. You will meet an alien in the mountain somewhere and now I have to deal with all
There's no critical doula who I know immediately said may not have elaborated on me. It'll be an Miko we're gonna go visit my cousin
who's her cousin, her cousin is a man by the name of watercop and Nofal work of a Novell was one of the in acid even Abdi Rosa. He is
Khadija cousin, first cousin. What was a was one of the few people in Arabia who were monogamous meaning who still believed in love a few people still had that with him. He had studied Yanni the the scripture of ACE Ali's to them and he and he had believed in as I said, but he was in Moorhead and you have Zaidi and I'm going to make Newfane you have a lot of different actually there's a number of them that if you go historically, people who are more 18 and then honey fi and Ibrahimi and they still believe that what Abraham Alice and I believed in and the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, he associated himself prior to prophecy with these people, and that's why he married but
these are because she was one of those people as well. They weren't.
They were rare, but they were there they existed. And what occurred was a man who was was quite old, and he was had blind he was blind at the end of his life. And he was a great knowledge he had studied the Torah he has studied indeed, he understood he knew how things worked. So Khadija trusted him if you took the Prophet audience like the sermon, she went to whatever, it'd be no fun.
are the Allahu Anhu? will tell him? The prophet Isaiah would give him four statements, tell him four things.
But of course, Salah you have Salah Mark telling me oh, my nephew, and it's a way the Arabs would use it, call someone younger than you, your nephew, telling me my nephew, what what happened. So the Prophet alayhi salatu salam began to explain to him what happened. I've been doing one, two and three for the last number of months. And then this person, this Yanni being this creature came and it said this, and it did this. And the private audience goes to them can't even believe that this happened to me. He's hoping he's hoping the person listening to him will mock Him for it.
So what if you could see any one of his eyes lighting up? Every time the Prophet SAW I said, I'm getting the detail.
Because I would light up listening to what the Prophet alayhi salam is seeing why because he's heard this before. A lot of us heard this before he knows what he's, he knows what the Prophet SAW Selim was talking about. This is not the first time actually this is going to be the last time. This has happened many, many times before. One of those not new to this, all the knowledge that he had, you're going to use in that moment to tell the profile by the way, the prophet Alia was set up to this moment doesn't know specifically that he is Rasulullah.
You know that this happened. He doesn't know what not exactly what has happened. He does not know no one has told him that you are now a prophet. The concept of prophecy was was not common amongst the Arabs, Ishmael Schneider Islam was the last one. So they don't it's not common. Usually it's in buddies. So Himalayan salt doesn't he's not sure what he just encountered. And then what I thought was, would give four statements. First statement, he would say in Mecca, Lennar B, you had Elam, in Mecca and a b You Are Here is a man, you are the profit of the end of time you are the prophet of this nation. You are the prophet and messenger that was sent to this nation and to the at the end of
time. That's the first time you heard it. So it
is going to take time to process all this information by the way, a few days, Allah subhanaw will give them a few days to process all those information, because that's a lot to carry. Being told you're a prophet, and then he will tell him well, it can move to LA Kiba and Latinos Allah Allah Musa is public. And what has come to you is the same spirit that came to Moses and Jesus before you. This is your reality and I'm just like it came to them, it came to you you're you're in the same situation, same position as Musa Annalisa
imagine what he's listening to all your thought was, at that moment, your Prophet what you just encountered and experienced is exactly what Musa and Isa before you experienced.
And then he told him what in the whole mucker so for you because the moon aka what you call Tillu NACA. Those are the words while you're doing what you're doing and your people will persecute you or press you harm you disbelieve in you
remove you and exile you
how it does work and all the stuff
where you get all this away who told what guys what are tiny in on assumptions conspiracy against the profit audience lets them know what have studied these studied the lives of all the profits before this is what happens. Unfortunately, this how things begin. Eventually insha Allah here prevails but that's how it starts out. There's a lot of resistance to the beginning. Because Because righteousness it hurts. It's not it's not something enjoyable at the beginning later on. It will cure all problems and fix all issues. But at the beginning it hurts. So that's going to happen to you. You're going to be oppressed, you're going to be persecuted. You have been mistreated. They
will not believe you they will remove you
the fourth statement
She needs three statements. The first three were for the prophet Ali saw says benefits, giving him information about himself free statements for his benefit. The fourth is for one aka himself. He would say late any Kulu via Jaga. If you read Yukako MCQ whether in dragony OMAC. The answer on Nicholson was, I wish I could be a young man, the day they remove you. The day will come when you want to be removed and exiled and you have to leave your country. I wish I was young. I wish I could be young that day. And if I lose to see that day, even in my old age, I will stand by you. The prophets I said I'm so far has been very polite, agreed.
I would probably have interrupted him at least four times by now.
He's telling him outrageous fees, pieces of information, the Prophet alayhi salatu salam has been very polite, he's just listening. He's not saying anything. He's not commenting. He's not interrupting what occur but at this point finally the Prophet so I said I'm interrupts why? What triggered him? What was the piece of information that he could not deal with? That he had to ask the question?
Oh, my God, your home?
Will they actually remove me from my country? Are they kicked out of my country?
So Allah Allah,
I wonder what he would say today? If he's all of us,
a bunch of people.
What brought you here? Now you were brought your parents by a bus? Yeah. What brought your grandparents? By Marshall? How do you have a couple of generations ahead of us what your great grandparents? What brought you here? This earth is our aunt Earth. She's not our Mother Earth. Or his Allah subhanaw taala.
Is belongs to Allah subhanaw taala. But this earth, she's our aunt. We should be good. She should be very nice to him very kind, but she thought her mother earth, at least most of us it isn't.
The texture that you have on your face. When you look in the mirror. This is not the earth that made it.
You belong to a different part. Never forget that. It means something. It means something.
Never forget that. You hail from a different part of the earth.
Doesn't mean that you can't live here doesn't mean you can't be a proud Canadian and stand by your country and build your country. No, that's not what I'm saying. It's not the point of any of this. But don't forget your roots. Don't forget the Mother Earth that produced this be these beautiful faces because you owe something. It's like it's like a mother of children leave the nest go and work and then they forget about her and the watch her burn and get destroyed and lose everything and act like it's not happening. It's not fair. It's not proper. All that bothered him. You are profit this is your BReel you will be oppressed you will be this and that they will come and they will remove
your quad or Mukherjee your home they're going to why would they why would they remove me? Why would they remove me I've all I've done my all my life is served my community that I lived in. All I've done is love my country and love my city and love my family. Why would they remove me makes no sense to him not as others? Why would I ever be removed and the day came when he was removed? And as he walks away from Mecca, he tears down his face and he can't hold it back. It looks back and he looks at MCC and he says Allah He and Nikita have been urging the healer you're the most beloved piece of Earth and my heart went over there and the whole Makia Hello June evening key Maharaj did if I
wasn't kicked out of you I would never leave. It was a scar that never never fully healed in his heart audience thought though center the day he died audience thought was that he was removed from where all his ancestors back to his main were born
in the same spot in the same city
for 3040 generations. He was removed. It hurt him it assaults me never forgot that. It's a scar that never healed in his heart. Oh Mukherjee yeah whom
this is what I answered him when he asked him the question. Now, let me it Roger on Cocteau been at he he who the ocarina No man has ever brought to his people what you are going to bring to your people except you're going to be oppressed and removed. It's just it's it's the Sunnah of this life. This is this is nature that's how things work. Muhammad Sallallahu ala Muhammad so I said and here's how it's gonna happen this I'm telling you what's going to happen.
He was evil he would. It's almost as if water Kalyani was like is living with us. He studied the Sierra and he went back in time to tell the prophets on my Sydenham what's going to happen okay by the way 1234 That was going to happen. Okay, just just heads up. That's what's coming.
He was important for great information for a number of reasons I'll share with you in a moment and then the prophet is awesome stood up and he thanked what time he walked out.
He walked out with with overwhelmed with so much info yesterday. He has to process all of this information that he's been given. And he's in moments he walks out and what are the calls Khadija to stay back for a moment cuz he wants to speak to Khadija
color in Korea, Khadija, that bt
The BT was the BT mean
I stand by him. What's coming ahead? is very difficult. What's luck? What lies ahead of him from this day forward? Is very difficult stand by him to be difficult now, is it? Yes, yes, I
actually left the law one after. Okay.
When you when you think about how he was introduced to some to all of this, so almost it's not almost as it is Allah subhanaw taala preparing him and giving him some time. For three, four days, there would be no way Gibreel would come that day for three or four days up to a week, we don't know for sure wouldn't come back again. It's as if to give them time to think.
Process this you're a prophet that was you Brene you're going to was outlining ahead of you is our years and years of difficulty. He's being promised difficulty. That's the only promise he was given out of that all of his life. What he was promised in his life on the inside zone was difficulty. You're going to find difficulty in every way you're going to find difficulty financially, socially, personally, spiritually, physically, you're going to be you're going to find all these different types of difficulties, physical, financial, everything. That's all he was ever promised with our latest thought was,
he was promised that nothing else.
How many of us would take that deal?
Being told that if you take this, if you accept this, if you choose to communicate with Gibreel, if you don't say I don't want to hear this, you're eventually going to be kicked out of your country. You're going to leave and you didn't tell him but you'll come back? No. All he knows he's going to leave. He doesn't know if you ever come back. Why would he take all this? Why would he carry it?
For the next six months? The Quran would come and put the Prophet so I said, Let me in front of a question. Are you going to carry this or no, you're gonna see the Suez will come one after the other telling him giving him small indications that the difficulties are still have they have not begun yet. The difficulty have not begun. The sooner is that the beginning will prepare him for it will ask him questions whether he wants to he doesn't want it. It will promise him a heavy load. That's all they will do. Because he has to commit himself on a saw to see if he chooses to accept this sort of loss I was sent a week later up would come again. He would come you're Purana Jalisa Isla Good to
see you in the inner center he will he will be sitting on a chair between this heavens and the earth somewhere in the sky. Not looking the way you look the first time different by Abu Mohammed
Gibreel Muna Sama, when the rasool Allah I am given from the heavens and you are the Messenger of Allah subhanaw taala for file MIF lemma upon, so please do as I do, and he would take the profit out to the outskirts of Mecca, and he would perform will do and he would perform salah the first thing he would teach the Prophet Allah usato serum is how to cleanse himself and how to make will do and how to how to do and he will do and how to pray and how to actually perform a proper salah the first lesson that he would learn how to use so that was set up
we have a lot of opportunities to look to see what they talk about sorta but yeah, there's so many of them that sometimes I just keep on procrastinating I'll don't talk about it the next time I have a chance and I certainly never ended up talking about it Guinee at this point, if you're coming to the masjid and you sit and listen to just make sure that Salah is one of your priorities, okay? Do not get any fool yourself or kid yourself when it comes to Salah there are five prayer today, they have certain timings. Meet them, pray on time.
There are a million excuses for you not to do it. Meaning you can come to me after any time and explain to me the difficulty of your situation. And I will be fully convinced by you that you cannot perform your time. But I am telling you perform your time and do it daily and do not miss your prayers. Whether you're at school or at work. Yeah, the situations where it's okay to lose the fallout missiles that are very few Jonnie if you're if you're performing emergency surgery oversight on someone, don't pray Maghrib in the middle of the alarm and let the guy die. If you're if you're a pilot of a plane, and it's a store, maybe you can wait until until you can turn on the autopilot
stuff like that something that is extreme where if you don't if you don't focus other people will lose their lives or other people will be at harm. Once other people are at harm. You're good to continue to do what you do. But as long as that's the case, if people's feelings are at harm, if your job is at stake, if you feel embarrassed and then and it doesn't matter. No you pray, you go and you ask for time and you and you perform Rosada please do not be embarrassed from Salah because it is one of the most important parts of our deen the first thing he was taught was that I'm done. Here's how you make will do and here's how you pray.
So he did Ali in South Sudan you learned and he learned how to do it. Like
let's go back I think we're not
You don't have to do so now.
I'm gonna go back and talk about what I've been know for a moment. Did you notice anything special about him? I gave you the statements that he made. He made a couple of statements. You notice anything special about the things he said?
I told you he said three things for the benefit of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he said the fourth thing for himself.
The fourth thing he said he said later on he Akula V Hijjah. If you read your book, well in America, Neo muka, also Nicholson boisar, I wish I could be young the day they actually remove you. And if I live to the day that happens, I will stand by you. With all my mind. That's what he said. You see what what occurred that day is that he made an intention. He made an honest, truthful intention, that if he were to live to that day, he would stand by the prophets I send them you know, the interesting part of the story didn't tell you this part yet.
The Prophet Alsacian will leave what are coming now for he and Khadija and they would go home, and he would die the next morning.
Welcome de novo passed away the next morning he would die. Allah Subhana Allah gave him life, gave him time on earth to live long enough to the day of his valleys, so that he would be brought by Khadija to him. So he could tell him these four statements, and then pass away immediately. But what if I was smart enough not to just not just to tell the prophets I send them valuable information. And doing that, of course, is beneficial, but he was smart enough to put in a fourth statement for himself.
He went on the record with good intention.
He went on the record saying if I live to that day, I will stand by you.
That means if he was honest and truthful, he gets the idea of every Sahabi that ever stood by the prophets. I send them until the day he died. daleel salatu salam. That's why one of the Hadith narrated by Paul Baran. He was in Baton Rouge Missoula. It goes like this your shuttle what appeared to be no fun, you will move to Montana. He comes you're willing to walk up and no fun as if he's an old man in terms of his percentage. He has enough to distribute upon a whole nation of people. It's like he's he's he is his own Oma. Meaning. If you look at an OMA and look at all their assets, and you say this, these are all their assets, each one gets a little bit and then you look at what a cup
and nobody has the same amount as in Omaha does. Well, how does that work? Because he made that intention that day.
He made the intention that if I live I will stand by you and he was honest, he was truthful and had he lived, he would have done it. But he didn't. All he wants from you. subhanho wa Taala is a truthful intention. Never give up on yourself. Even if you make an intention and you don't meet it. Keep on making that intention every single day. Make sure you do not let a day go by without the intention of being a better person. The next one, do it every day. Never give up Allah subhanaw taala never never gets bored of you making good intentions and him forgiving you and giving you as an urge until you get bored of doing it until you give up on yourself. What shaytaan does Japan just
got any good becomes very sad. I see you're useless. How many times have you said you're going to do this? He's never done it? Yes. See, I know, I know. I know. And you know that you're not worth anything. Please stop making a fool of yourself and making this intention it all it could because he can't stand the amount of reward and the amount of love and mercy that Allah subhanaw taala bestows upon you when you make that truthful intention against standards, he has to convince you that you're not worth it never stopped making good intentions,
truthful intentions. And even if you fall short, try again, make the intention again and move forward again. What are your shadow? matawa you'll come up with a PMO with a mountain of Hasina doesn't enough to distribute on a nation. And I have no other stories to tell you about what I've done. Besides the one I've already told you. I will continue to tell you the story is a little bucket and I'm with an audience or wait until you're bored of me. But I have nothing else to say but what is the end of it? He died the next morning.
Well, the Allahu Allahu Allah. Okay, I thought it was something worth worth sharing.
Let's see if we can maybe notice something here. Maybe there's a pattern here. Yes.
Yes, so we'll come to that in a second. I will. I will address that in a few minutes. As we talk about it. I haven't started talking about the obviously the first Muslim was studied yet, but we'll come talk about in a moment shall take it step by step. I want to see if people can notice something here.
First word that the Prophet SAW I sent them would hear
it. That's the first word right. But the first one you will use extra and we talked about it doesn't mean to recite written text. It means to read read in English has a figurative meaning. The reading of Africa is the figurative meaning of read, reading between the lines reading a situation reading that's what it means to learn to comprehend and to gather information. That's what it means in Arabic. If you want to talk about reading written texts, you will say you got to go through here in a communal Kitab in the medina Talulah kitab. Allah those who recite recite something written, there is a different meaning altogether. Obviously, they ruined that in our schools when we were young by
we've called them calling the subject where we read things, and we were led to believe but that's not the truth. That's not how the language actually works.
The first was F club. You have six references to knowledge. Whether it's the tool of knowledge, or is the actual act of learning or teaching in the first five verses of the Quran, it cannot be smaller because of the Halacha halacha in Santa Clara or Bucharest, Romania the Allameh Bill Palom and lemon in Santa Monica me I'm six times when Pfeiffer's first buy versus the second surah that was revealed to him it Asako Sam is called Al Kalam, what is the Kalam, the pen that was the second surah revealed to me Assad was the man who told him he was a prophet, the first person to explain to him that you are Rasul Allah was a man by the name of America. What is What are the mean in English?
And Arabic? What does it mean? Obviously, even a text or paper, no message there at all? What did you need to do need to spell it out more than that for you? subhanho wa taala? What else do you have to do? How clear does he have to make this to all of us until we get the point here is that
it's something beyond a fifth command. In English in Islam, whenever you're given a command of the Quran, it has to have a stance it has to be either a word you must be mandatory or must have something that is recommended or MOBA something that is open you can do what you cannot do whatever or it has to be something that is not recommended or something haram any command in Islam has to fall under one of these five categories. When we talk about the command of Quran and the Quran. It doesn't fall under any of these categories. None of the people have ever mentioned it it this was never studied Islamically ever because there's no point because if God is one step before, it's
before all of that, before I start explaining to you that in the law, before I explain to you how to perform and what your job is here in Cali, but before that, you need to understand the concept. This concept has to be very clear to you. You have to be the someone who understands the perspective, the mentality, the way of thought of Accra, you have to be someone who knows that prevalence of the of any nation on this earth until the Day of Judgment will be filled will will happen through knowledge will happen through learning through critical thinking that is how you're going to achieve things there are no more miracles as you're as you're used to them. Me the stuff that you read in the books
in the Quran when no father brings is not God Musa hits the slits to see an ASA resurrects the dead and none of that is happening. It's not going to occur again.
That's over why because there's so much the first word that the first thing is going to be taught as a thorough read, that's how you're going to make it. That is how you're going to succeed. You're going to read, you're going to learn and comprehend, you're gonna think you're going to gather knowledge, and you're going to use it for your benefit. And that's how you're going to move forward.
I want to run this sort of run through this surah with you for a moment.
Everyone knows the first verse five verses because they're so famous.
But the rest of the sutra isn't.
I'm not sure the percentage of people who've memorized the end of the sutra, perfectly. But the beautiful part of it is that it explains to you exactly what I'm trying to say. Like if you don't believe me, if my points to you are futile, and you think I'm just making this up? Because I have no, let's let's read the surah. Let's just go to the surah. So, you see the first five verses were revealed immediately this rest of the soil was revealed a couple of months later, a couple of months later, the rest of it was attached to the beginning. Let's take a look at this pseudo together.
What it actually does, this is what it does.
It talks about what needs to happen before you become Muslim.
Before you accept Islam, a number of traits need to exist within us. In order for Islam to work. Islam will not function in within you. If you lack certain traits, or you have certain traits, which this has been talked about. It won't function won't do his job.
And that is why a lot of the problems we have today
exist because the traits that we needed to have prior to learning Islam were in there that are explained in the suit over here. It's like Okay, before we talk about Islam, let's see, do you have Are you compatible with Islam? You know, computers, you have to have the compatible Jonnie motherboard for the system or doesn't you download it, it doesn't work before but that's what it is. It's way before it's the first word. There's just there's no fifth here there's nothing you need to understand this has to be the way of life this has to be the fundamental principle that you will build your life upon before we talk about how you're going to practice Islam. Before we get into the
nitty gritty of how things are going to be done and all the ethical codes and all the practices and the halal and haram we need to know what type of person are you are you someone who understand the fundamental principle of Accra and what it means we're not really okay let's take a look at how the student actually works.
from six to eight can in an insert a layup of who's still gonna in you know, bigger Rajon what the school is going to do is going it's going to talk about four
different traits, negative ones that if you have within you it, well, you're not someone who is a part of the mentality of Africa and poor and Islam will help you in no way at all. Islam will do nothing for you and me if these four traits exist within our hearts, or we function in this way, you get rid of these traits and then you have the opposite traits, which we'll talk about and then Islam will actually do you some good and you can use it properly and it'll help you when Allah subhanaw taala explains that actually do some good the first treat, can insana know the problem with the human being Leia pulga. Tolkien means two things it means arrogance. And it means harm is the
combination when you fuse harm and arrogance into one word or turn into a Boolean algebra which doesn't at the moment, he feels that he's strong, he does not care about those around him. He no longer leaves ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. So he uses loses his humility, and he no longer needs people. So he starts to harm them. In Arabic Raja, but everyone were turned to him. Subhana wa Tada. That's the first one, the non compatible trace. And then the opposite of the compatible chase for six to eight arrogance and harm. What's the opposite of arrogance and harm? What's the opposite trace for them? Arrogance, the opposite is humbleness, the opposite of harm is compassion of some sort. All
right, the first is right after it. Or at least the younger than either Salah you see someone who chose a
servant who is who is praying, not to tell them no. Why did they tell the prophets I said I'm not to pray initially, what was one of the most important reasons for them? Were the most important reasons for them is that it was something that was different to them. It was new, they will say how they're not happy about oh, now we're gonna do something that we just we are not used to. This is not our tradition. My father did not pray like this. Your grandfather didn't pray like this that uses against him. It is also all his life.
Did your grandfather and father do like this? Did they do it? Did they do this? Exactly what you're doing right now. They refused it just because it's new. They refuse it infuse the idea. They refuse the practice just because they weren't accustomed to it. Because it's not something they're familiar with. If you're someone who turns down ideas, if you're someone who refuses something new, just on the basis that it is new, then that doesn't work.
No, no. The opposite is someone who's impartial. Someone who wants open mindedness. Someone who, let's see, let's see you this new idea how it works. The examples of that in his Wi Fi system are many.
He's just with us, haha, but he asked him 10,000 People are marching our way. What do they do? And some guy from Persia puts his hand up and says how about we dig a trench
to do in Persia. I used to work there. And
everyone laughed. By the way, the story the Sahaba giggle, they thought it was joking. And those who didn't think he was joking, laughed at him because it's a crazy idea. And because they don't do this stuff. No one dug dig the trench five kilometers long, three meters wide and four meters deep. That makes no sense. In the profit. Well, that may work. He starts to ask people with the geography of the city. So it puts it together and it works. And it did work to the Sahaba that made it they weren't ready for that. But he doesn't mind Alia so it was
right in the the inhabitant either Salah says it's a worship or don't worship this because it's not something they're used to the third 108 In can I learn who they are? Oh, Mr. Rabbit taco, you see, what if? What if the person who was doing the thing that you don't like, have some guidance in it? Maybe it was right? Oh, I'm gonna talk about oh, what he's doing will result in some form of piety or good behavior? Did you ever think of that, if you ever give what the other person is doing the benefit of the doubt, you ever look at it objectively before or just because someone else is doing it, you don't want it. You don't accept it. Because it came from a source that you don't like.
Because that's something that you're familiar you accept, generally, you're going to you're going to dismiss it immediately. You don't have the ability to see the height. And what the other person is saying is he as a human being we disagree. If you can't see the hawk in what I'm trying to say, when I'm talking to you that that means that you have a problem. That means you're not going to be a part of this or you're not Islam is not compatible with you. You have to be when I listened to you when I disagree with you, if I don't have the ability to see your point of view to see that or maybe you're seeing something that makes sense. Maybe I don't have to accept the whole thing, but at least accept
a certain part of it and say to myself, well, it's not that bad, I guess I guess I can understand your your opinion. But if I can't, if the way I think is either my way or the highway, I see it all right, you say it all wrong. That's how life is and whether you like it or not, it's your problem.
It's like I'm not compatible with Islam. The third one being biased and prejudiced. There are bias and prejudice against somebody saw toaster, they could not for a moment it could not take a moment and consider that maybe what he's doing on a cyclist didn't make some sense. They couldn't do it. The opposite of that is being objective being fair.
The final 108 in Canada with Allah Allah, Allah Hi, yah. See what if the they refuse the refuse what is right and they turn their backs on what's
See it makes more sense to them is a very important point. In the Quran. There's difference between Cofer in between tech deep cover means disbelief. Why did he disbelieve? I don't know. Of course, that's the meaning that we usually use it has a different meaning linguistically, but that's what we usually use this belief, I don't know. Why take you the means that this person disbelieved, even though what appeared to him to be to make more sense is belief. Meaning it made more sense to him to believe. But for whatever reason, whatever reason he refused, go for it could mean that someone just believed they couldn't see the sense in belief, meaning they Islam to them, for some reason didn't
make sense. So they didn't believe that's called go for. But if someone Islam made sense to them, and they said, No, that's called tick deep. That's why the Quan way, you know, in your evolution, because maybe in many, many times, in any situation in your life, if Allah subhanaw taala shows you what is right, and you refuse it because it doesn't serve your interest. Because it doesn't help you. Because you think that people will never figure it out. Because you think you have the ability to hide whatever evidence could convict you. Or you can or you can play because you're you're smart, you want to speak you know how to present yourself. So you can convince people that it's a different
thing. That's got to keep refusing and refusing righteousness, at the bow to Allah. If you refuse righteousness, you just don't you don't follow will help.
The opposite unconditional follower of righteousness. Any of these four traits, if any of these four traits exist in any of us, were not compatible with this. Now, before we start going into the details before I shall explain to you the rest of Islam, these four
you need to be someone who's humble, you need to be humble, compassionate, open minded, objective and unconditional followers of the truth. If that's how you live, then Islam will do miracles for you. And if not, if there's arrogance, if there's human harm, if there's refusal of luck,
if there's refuse of all that is new, if there's subjectivity and lack of the ability to be objective and fair, if that's how you are as a person, Islam will do nothing to you and not even know the answer. And now you will know why you wonder, why is it there's so many Muslims doing this thing wrong? And I think this way, it has nothing to do with the text of Islam. Islam is perfect as a religion and as a faith as a teaching. It's the problem with the compatibility. These people were never compatible with Islam to begin with. They couldn't fit it correct, the fundamental principle that came to them that's what it means the ability to have these traits because this is how you
learn. You need to be someone who's humble if you're not humble, you can't learn. If you don't, if you're not compassionate, you can't learn if you're not open minded, it's impossible for you to learn. If you're not objective, you can't learn if you don't follow us. You follow the truth, follow the evidence follow what makes sense the logic then you cannot learn and if you cannot learn then Islam will do nothing will do nothing for you. That's why the prophets I send them will say in some iden people they have a treat smiley means are made of what they're made of their two colors. Here room, Phil is he is
a healer, Yeti, PR wrongfully Islamia, Falco, who the best of people and Joe Helia will become the best of Islam, if they accept it. Because they're fully compatible. You have all the heavy oil, and you have all these traits. They're humble, they're compassionate, they're objective, they're open minded, they follow the Huck then you'll be fine.
But if any of these don't exist,
then you can do what you want.
Then follow what you want in Islam, it's not going to do anything for you.
It will, the system will fail and you're saying I say the system itself, it'll fail. It won't serve its purpose. That's the importance of this first sutra that the Prophet SAW Selim was given, it's important to me that I share this point with you. Because often
we recite the Quran we use your clock with our children CMOS if I chose to read, and you're referring to your kid who doesn't read books, which is nice. I'm not against them. I think that's good. But no, it's way it's way beyond that. This is a way of life. This is a this is a way of thoughts. There's a mentality. Either you have it or you don't. Can you change to become Yes, of course, you can change right now you can make the intention like Baraka, did anybody have the intention to change right now, if one of these four one of these one of these traits don't exist, then change them now? What else won't help you? That's why Epcot is one step before this is before
we talk about this. Now, that's what was the first tool to be revealed to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.
I hope that was helpful. So these are the theories that were revealed to the Prophet. So I said at the beginning, he's the first five shooters, that he would be given Ali Hassan to Sudan.
And within this sequence, as far as we know, so it was locked, then or column and then wisdom mill, then Buddha's there, and then, so to Fatiha. The each one represented something and they still represent the same themes. If you study the sutras within the
Observe. That's the beauty of it. I mean, these sorts don't change if you study them within the visit that they have in the Quran, when they saw the same representation to do the same thing sooner, right? The fundamental principle, this is what you're going to go live by. I don't understand how our communities today are still so superstitious. And so based on Jonnie booboo, the hearsay and refuse things that are clean that have evidence to them, and refuse signs and refuse logic, when the first word in their book was gonna end, the whole point of this is that you turn into someone who was like that I don't understand. It makes no sense to me. And it's very
frustrating, because the more conversations I have to have, I'm growing. I don't know, if you're noticing, but my fuse is becoming shorter and shorter by the day. I don't know why I maybe I'm getting older. And maybe I don't know what the reason is, maybe I have two kids now. And I don't know what the what's changed in me, but my feeling is getting shorter. And I'm getting tired of this stuff. I'm getting tired of people coming and telling me that they think they have gin in them, and that their parents were told them that they can't get married because they have, or because someone stopped doing this, Whoever tells you is this just tell them to be quiet. This is not that this
doesn't exist. All of these cultural, all this culture luggages that we've been carrying with us for the last 1000 years. 100 years, we need to get rid of because there's no such thing and never happened before. You really think Allah subhanaw taala would fail to tell you that there's a the creature somewhere that you can't see that can hijack your brain and make choices for you. You think it would fail to tell you that somewhere in the Quran, you would forget your religion and Allah, but we live on a superstition. It amazes me. I don't understand why this is something from other nations. By the way. Other religions have a lot of superstition but Islam doesn't. Islam started
with what you're supposed to follow. The evidence is about you someone who stands by righteousness and truth.
You're supposed to learn and comprehend and gather knowledge and knowledge, not lose more knowledge and lose the ability to think and lose ability to learn. We struggle in this society with mental illnesses. We struggle in this society with mental illnesses, you could be someone who is very aware of this. And you can be someone who's not aware of this at all.
But I'm telling you we struggle with in this society with mental illnesses in every age group, both genders.
I've seen it all. And I continue to see it. And it's an it's turning into an epidemic. And it's a problem. It's a problem that if we don't start dealing with intelligently now will lead to catastrophic consequences in the near future. This the consequences of this, you will see it in your life, it's not going to happen after you pass away within our lifetime, we will see the consequences of this. And a lot of the issues we have with mental illness comes from a lot of the misbeliefs that we have, and the improper way of us viewing our lives and the world around us whether it's from people who think examples I gave you this superstitions are those who refuse to understand that the
brain is like any other organ, and it gets sick and it needs it. It needs help and it needs a therapy and needs medication. And these people say it's normal. And this is not an act of anger from ALLAH SubhanA wa tinycam to fix it with some chance reading sutra 30 How over a bottle of water and then gig having him drink it.
I think I spent the first 10 years of my life by telling people that I don't want to read certain Bacara apparently because imagine someone asked me to resort to a bucket over a bottle of water. And I think that I did this before
Well, I had to do it once it was an old lady. And she was too old for me to explain any of this stuff for if I went on this rant I would Yeah, it wouldn't work. And she made me feel me and that I would and I had to sit in the room. And I read sudo Docker info over a bottle of water and the poor person Yeah, I needed that I was doing it for it was a schizophrenic was denied the Geneva healthcare and denied it psychotics and denied therapy. And that's all it was. But we couldn't get that through to them and we couldn't get it through to him. And I hope my Quran helped in the Quran always helps by the way, mitten, let me make this very clear. Quran is Shiva for everything. For
everything. You need to read it every day upon everyone you love every single day, every day, I do it every day upon all my loved ones every day, whether I'm there physically beside them or not, never stopped. The moment you stop shows something wrong with your face every day you do it. But just like when you break your leg, you don't be sort of adiamor on a planet, you take it you need to do an orthopedic surgery for it to fix it. Do the same with every other illness in your life. If you're okay with breaking your leg, you just read the Quran upon it until it heals. Go ahead, but you won't do it. Then why is it for other illnesses? We will? Why is it
because we don't understand. Well, not this. We want to understand the concept of UCLA because the mentality of the fundamental principle of Islam, the compatibility is lost. We've lost our compatibility with our own Deen we've lost it because we don't we're not open minded because we're not objective because we will not follow the truth no matter where it leads us. We follow the truth evidence what is what is logical what makes perfect sense we follow it.
And we are humble as we do with them. We're compassionate towards other people's
suffering and if we're not that, that I don't know what we are to be honest. And those are the first five suitors that were revealed to the prophets of Allah and he was happy to send them. We have a few minutes so I'm gonna share a few more thoughts and children
so if you look at the
tattoo sutras, which I'm going to within the next few weeks, I'm going to break down not in detail, I'm gonna do a diff see of Harlequin instead of a sea of a halacha. But I will give you some pointers just from them. So you benefit from them. These swords brought the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with just enough information, because what's going to happen after these five sources is no more why for three to four months, as you breathe will no longer show up not for anything, not first. Yeah, I need the spiritual support, not you will come you will, he'll bring the assurance and he'll leave. It will bring the whole thing so to call him you'll bring only a certain part of it.
Certain was me the first page. So the first may be 19 versus Superfetch. Obviously, the whole thing, and then they brought and then you'll be will start coming to the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, he will no longer show up for three to four months. Why? Because the Prophet of Salah Salem has to devise his plan. He has to figure out what he's going to do. And he has to figure out what he was going to commit to this or not. These were very, very critical months for him out of your software center. And he will be he'll become very upset within them because all of Quraysh the moment he said, This melodically the HELOC knew the story. The story wasn't a secret, by the way, we were
sometimes led to believe that no one knew about it until there's still a jumble of stuff I know everybody knew about it. Way before he got in trouble to suffer. All that happened when he got into the software and said what he call operation is that he made it a public issue.
He made it public everybody has to make their choice. Are you got to listen to me? Are you going to give me the benefit of the doubt? Are you gonna listen to what I have to say? Are you going to shut me out? shut me down. Some people. Some people didn't. But everyone knew. It's just because he was doing it privately at the beginning on a Saturday or Sunday left him alone. But he was like you're not doing it publicly. It's not our problem. We do behind closed doors, do what you want. But the Quran was so interesting that everybody had to hear it. Everybody would wait until one of the people who accepted Islam came by dawn. What
was Muhammad saying? Oh, he doesn't know. Yeah.
What does it say?
I want to hear what it says. Yeah, but you're not Muslim. I know. Just I'm interested in what you say. And they couldn't get enough of it. There's a story I'll share with you at some point. In the future. They will go stand behind the profit size items on the wall because he used to make Dookie and Leila outside and recite the Quran. And they would stand there to listen to him. And they would bump into each other Bucha high level Sofia would bump into each other. What are you doing here? Nothing. What are you doing here? I just wanted to hear it because no one would tell them anymore. When they start to persecute people. No one would tell them anything anymore. And I hurt them. They
want to hear noon we'll call a new alias to ruin Merton Davina Mattila Baker emoji noon when they're like noon when Nicola Hola Hola, quinoline Versa tuples little oil will sit on to them they had never heard words like this. Arabs are masters of the language or master of poetry. They know how to put together something that sounds beautiful and has deep meanings. But the Quran came and acted as if it carried on nothing of this. The Quran acted like nothing of this mattered. Years and years of years and years of Arabs perfecting this craft of poetry, to make sure that things are said in a certain way and follow a certain law and it's beautiful is difficult to actually keep up with no one
can do it today. It's a dead art, even those who try and say porcini they can't do what was done there. It was an it is almost it's almost miraculous, the command of language that the Jehovah people had. And then the Quran came and said, I don't need any of this. It broke every law. It brought forward a way of literature of Scripture that was never heard before. It's not to say things that didn't follow the very rigid tunes that poetry did. It ended differently. It had its own way of reciting you see when you recite in Arabic language you don't do mud, no recite ziani In order to read the novel or reads
a newspaper and says MA You know no one does that. You just read whatever there you don't want to know and when you're reading a book you don't do that. When the Quran not only is it going to break every law, it has its own law. When you really have to be like this. And you have to sing it out. You have to sing it just has a sound lace You can say I mean it no no, no, no, that's not okay. Make it sound nice. It came in broke every law and they couldn't handle it. They could not handle that this is happening because that goes against every every cell in their body, because that's what you used to. And why is Muhammad doing this but they couldn't get enough of it to tell us more though.
This is so wrong. But what else did he bring today? Yeah, you heard him was Amin, amin Lena Illa Coleen new Sua. Who are we on postman hookah Lila, la he will aterial Khurana door de la
They want to hear it, they couldn't get to hear it. And then after these five students Gibreel stopped coming for four months,
and they start to mock him. Ali Asad was slow.
All the difficulties will start right at the beginning because you have to make a decision. Is he going to commit to this? Or is he gonna give up early on AUTOSAR. But these five tools were enough, he was given the fundamental principles, two o'clock, he was given the ethical code and Sudocrem read the first 16 verses, to cut them all they are our ethics, you shouldn't you shouldn't have which in the Quran does Allah the Quran instead of telling you what you should have, it tells you what you shouldn't have, it's easier that way. Let's rule out the bad stuff. And then whatever's left is going to be a bunch of good things. You can choose whatever you want from the good things,
just rule out the really bad stuff. So the column was the ethical code. So to Muslim men is your spiritual needs the prophet of science, and it will be told that he needs to do did in order to carry this message for the rest of his life. You have to do family, you have to be smart. You have to recite the Quran. Quran you have to do these things. Go to the Museum of the first 19 verses and read them you'll find the exact same thing. He's being told do these things to strengthen your heart. You need your sleep right? You need your sleep. Yeah, you need your prayer as well.
You need your prayer just like you need your sleep. You need both you lose one you don't function very simple. so desperate to get him the conduct the mission of conduct what they're going to do come back Africa with the abaca what's going to look like in terms of the conduct he's going to carry what are you gonna teach people to do and then sutra 30 High Islam and Hajj. So 230 is a general way of life this is this is what it's about. This is what breaks down everything that Islam is about everything I talk to you about in Islam is very simply summarize and explain this with regard to anything I tell you or I explain to you I talk to you about that does not fit with the
basic principles of SUTA 30 How you can easily tell me you're wrong immediately because literally everything is the key is the key that opens every door in the Quran is the key that opens every door in Islam, everything has to have certain parts of it. You can't read the Quran unless you so much at first no don't really reflect at first why? Because you need to remind yourself this is the key. This is the key that you use you understand the Quran through certified you have first he was given all those tools here. Here's the tools come up with a plan. What you're up, you're not gonna give me the plan. You're not gonna plan things for me who the first Muslim gonna be. You're like, oh, well
hold it. Who do I start with your? Do I start with? Oh bakudo said with Alma, who do I speak to? Do I stay here? Do I leave? Do I speak publicly? What do I do? Nope. degree out for yourself. And he did so on the Harley's, like I said, let me know and I'll share with you the struggle that he had figuring this out at the beginning. So as I was saying, I'll share with you a few of the meanings of these verses in sha Allah next week. I hope that was helpful. Subhanallah we'll be handing this stuff over to Blue Lake wa salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad
