Are 300 particularly just talking about the introduction of sort of some of the first nine verses of it, and I spent a good amount of time trying to explain what the theme of students is and what the goal of the sutra is I was trying to bring forward, it is a part of a cluster of suitors beginning to observe and the pursuit of solid oceans and so on. I prefer the Zoomer, but either way is fine.

00:00:26 --> 00:01:07

He's doing his talk about the concept of submission, of obedience of law of Islam. And it's one of the most important and dynamic parts of of our faith by far. And it looks at this this concept is very unique and important on the topic from a number of different angles he stood up is very unique in the angle is going to look at it from and it brings depth, and it helps us understand what what we're supposed to be doing. And I know that sometimes when you hear the reply our system or submission, he's like, Okay, well, isn't that what the deen is, and, yeah, it to a certain extent it is that but however, the concept or the idea of you giving up your free will, to the will of Allah

00:01:07 --> 00:01:42

subhanaw taala of you to say that I'm willing to give up my will, I want my will is only as good as a loss of content as Will is. That is that is a big, that's a big decision to make. And that's not easy. And it's easy, it's easier said than done, to be honest. And you will find a lot of conflict in your life between stating that and then being able to follow through with it. So these sorters just look at that idea. And look at it from all these different angles to show you that it's not as easy as it may seem, and being able to actually follow through with it will take a lot of effort, a lot of time and a lot of commitment. And there's a lot of different levels to it. So it's an example

00:01:42 --> 00:02:18

of that the first angle, the first level, which is submitting to all of us, as well and following in a bit obeying when it's extremely difficult to do so when it's hard when it is especially hard for you to do but when you don't, you're not comfortable with what you're being told to do, whether physically or psychologically, or socially or financially. And, and it looked through all these different examples that I wanted. These examples were very personal to the Prophet's life, we dove into his personal life, his personal feelings and thoughts in his life, and in his interactions with the Sahaba are very difficult to talk about these examples, and they're hard to explain. However,

00:02:19 --> 00:02:57

you know, there's a lot to learn from all that. So it's about looks at the same idea of power of your being Allah has commanded submitting to His will, but from a different angle. The angle here is more social, it's more communal, it's more from a civilization perspective, meaning societies at large need to submit to Allah subhanaw taala is willing, and if they don't, then they will not thrive, or they won't, they won't reach their potential, there will be a breaking point, the moment the moment societies stop building their, their foundation is no longer built on Iman than they will fall meaning Yes, when you build a society, you need all these other elements you need justice, you

00:02:57 --> 00:03:34

need equity or equality. And you need a financial or an economy to build on it, you need a certain age group demographic and you need political unity. And you need to have a vision and all that is extremely, extremely important. And you have to remove yourself from to tell you deleterious, utilitarianism and, and corruption. All this has to be moved out in order for you to thrive as a civilization. But you also need Iman, this is what students have a kind of talks about the email is needed as well, in order for you to make that make those steps and that's what we talked about. In a nutshell, in the last two or 300 slides today. We start a new chapter within the Sunnah from now and

00:03:34 --> 00:03:53

I pretend to be number 14 inshallah we will read all the all four or five verses, can you tell a story of Satan, the devil, Danny's lmsc, nurseryman. They tell the story of the or they get the example of a community or a society that thrived because of the man

00:03:55 --> 00:04:01

with a twist me there's a lot of other things were there too, meaning it wasn't you can't build a society

00:04:03 --> 00:04:33

merely on faith. You need way more than that to actually build a society. And the sooner is going to explain that to us and make it very clear that it's not you're not building it just on faith. Abraca somebody said that when he started his community in Medina, it wasn't exclusively built on just religion. To me, it was much more to it than that. But it was a fundamental part of it. It's a fundamental part. Extremely important. And I think I think since we've lost that as Muslims.

00:04:35 --> 00:04:59

You know, a lot of I guess a lot of our problems that we have today that we complain of comes from that is that we don't really, we don't really build our societies on faith. We build them on a lot of other stuff. You can build them on blood relations on right. You can build them on financial benefit, mutual benefit, you can build them on ethnicities and nationalities and all these other things, but they're not built on faith. Yes, there's faith in it.

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

Mi faces is floating all through the society. That's that's understood, but it's not built on it. So all the even add up all the other elements, a lot of societies I know in the Middle East have all the other elements they need, but it's just not a built on face. So it's not getting as far as you think it should get you to look at societies in the Middle East, or in parts of the world where the majority of people are Muslim wonder why is it that there are no good examples of communities that are very strong and thriving, because of Islam, it's because it's not built on it. It's there, meaning it's part of the culture, and another differentiated differentiation that sort of sub brings

00:05:37 --> 00:06:12

forward, the difference between having it as a culture as just something that's there, and actually building your society based on this is the this is the building stone, this is the Hydra SLS, as they say, this is the break this is that the nucleus of our society is our faith. And then in order for us to thrive, we need 123456 Other elements to actually stand up. But that is the nucleus. And if it's not, if it's not, if not, then you may you're just like everyone else, you're just like any other society that exists in the world, depending on whatever elements you have, and how deep they are no strength, strong they are. And all the other complex complexities that play into sociology,

00:06:12 --> 00:06:41

or the social dynamics of a group of people or population will dictate how far you can go. But the question is, is the nucleus of it all faith or not, and this is what sorts of talks about, but it talks about it in a way that makes sure you understand that you cannot succeed merely on faith, either. If you believe that it's just to build a site just on religion, there has to be more, there are more elements that are needed in order for it to, for it to work. And I also said something else last time just to kind of bring everyone everyone up to speed

00:06:42 --> 00:07:21

is that I based on understanding sort of itself, and the message that's in it, and you will see this as you go along. I hesitate to call the populations of Muslims that exist here in Canada, for example, societies or Muslim communities, I don't think the word community actually applies to us. The way I the way I understand it, is, in order for us to be a Muslim community, there has to be centralization of a number of different things in order for us to be called a community because there's going to talk about what community is thriving on Amen. For us to take the example and take the benefits in the lesson from sort of seva, for example, and then apply it on our own communities

00:07:21 --> 00:07:53

here, we're going to find it's not going to work, are you going to try and do it, you're gonna fail, because there's a problem with our community, we call it what we have here community, but it's not actually very accurate, because we don't have centralized approaches, meaning we don't have centralized leadership, social, religious or political, we don't have centralized financial approaches. There's no, there's no zip code that's being put in one place and then distributed to people who are in need of internet, we don't. And we don't have a unified vision for the future, meaning, I'm trying to take care of my family, you're trying to take care of your family, but we're

00:07:53 --> 00:08:21

trying to do it on an individual basis, not on a communal one. So the lack of centralization makes me very hesitant, or not confident in calling what we have a community. And you say, of course, it's a population of Muslims that are close. And yes, we we pray together. And yes, we come to join together, that's all fine and Hamdulillah. That's a good thing. But in order for you to call this a society in the sense that students seven is going to look at a pseudonym, he looks at as well, if you're interested in

00:08:22 --> 00:08:56

that as well, these are, these are the sources, if you if you're interested in this topic, to look into more uses, we'll talk about it a bit more, you need some level of centralization. Now we don't that we liked that we don't have, you need at least one or two angles on it, you need at least at least a religious civilization of a community where there's a religious leadership, at least at least that meaning that within a Muslim population, we don't have five or six centers that are doing their own thing, each one kind of moving in their own direction. Now there has to be centralization of religious religious leadership, you don't have that, then you should at least have some social

00:08:56 --> 00:09:32

leadership, meaning a center that will guide people socially and help them make social choices in terms of marriage and raising children and education and employment. And if not that, then at least financial socialization. Where is it guys being put into the same bin and is then distributed properly? And the financial choices economic, economical choice in terms of businesses and hiring people is also being done in a centralized approach, you have no doubt that at least having some political representation that everyone comes around, but if you have none of those, and what is what exactly are we? Just because we this because we have the same rituals?

00:09:33 --> 00:09:45

I don't know that I'm hesitant, understanding my dilemma here. This is not to make you feel bad. This is not trying. I'm not trying to make a no, I want you to think about this. This is important. It makes a big difference

00:09:48 --> 00:09:59

in terms of calling a group of people, a society and a community or just calling them a minority, and that's what they usually use. Now. These are minorities, right? Because they're just small pockets of people here.

00:10:00 --> 00:10:33

That look alike are behave similarly, communities are different. And I know examples of communities, because there are groups of people who do centralize a lot of their efforts, at least one aspect of their efforts, and they can they make, they make huge steps forward because they do. So I, I'm happy with any form of centralization for a community, anything at all, give me anything, give me financial, social, religious, political, anything, I will take anything, because you'll see the difference in 10 years. By the time the younger brothers are older, there'll be something you can you can hear too, there's something for you to join, there's something that you can build on so that

00:10:33 --> 00:10:44

you can make make some change with you have something that you belong to a sense of belonging. Yeah, that is that is generally needed to have a sense of belonging, as you grow up.

00:10:45 --> 00:11:19

You know, if you're my age, you don't care anymore, you're already established in terms of who you belong to. But for him, and I, these guys know, they haven't built a sense of belonging, and it's not your fault, because that's a part of growing up anyway, you're supposed to slowly build a sense of who do I belong to what group Am I a part of. And if you can't find, if the group that you're being told you're a part of doesn't seem to have any representation on any level, you're less likely to want to join the group. So you need some form of representation, which is basically what I'm trying to say, which is, which is the equivalent of what centralization means. So when you're

00:11:19 --> 00:11:51

centralize this, the social aspect, or financial or political, religious aspect of a group, then you have representation on that front? And then you can join the group, you feel like, oh, yeah, I'm joining. And this is what we do, we focus on the financial aspect or the social aspect. And that means a lot. And when we don't have that, that's why a lot of our youth, they float around to other things. And when they come back to them, if they do, they come back pretty late in life, they've already made a ton of mistakes. And when they come back, they get lost, because you don't know what because they want this they still want to belong to they go belong to other groups within this

00:11:51 --> 00:11:53

Muslim, within the huge Muslim mosaic

00:11:54 --> 00:12:26

that we have, they try to join a group, it's not that they join a horrible group. Sometimes you join a really dumb group, and it takes a long time to get them. You shouldn't be none of this is not the right group. You shouldn't be thinking like this is wrong. Get out of that just be a Muslim is a Muslim, but what am I a part of, within the society that I'm in? I'm in mostly but what am I a part of? I mean, a part of something. Are we doing something this community? Do we have goals? Are we going somewhere? Do we have a voice? Are we trying to make change in a certain on a certain level? No, well, that's boring. For you, that's very boring, you get bored, and I understand because I got

00:12:26 --> 00:13:05

bored. I'm no longer Yeah, if I was doing and I got bored, there's nothing happening. And we what, uh, what is okay, let me let me depress you just a bit more before we start meeting the beautiful story of who am I? So I'll give you one more tiny, depressing thought, I believe or five years telling you what has changed in five years in the Muslim community. And just a little bit on what has changed? What homeworks have we achieved, what milestones have been met. And you see what I'm saying. And that is depressing, that in five years time, nothing that was planned five years before has been achieved. Something is not as things happen, of course, it happens because Allah subhanaw

00:13:05 --> 00:13:43

taala put him in the omen to always be fair, they'll always be individuals, while Plato will try to do it and they'll achieve things. But for there to be something that was planned five years before, and today, we see the fruits of it. And that's not happening in a structured problem properly planned madder than we're not things, we're not doing things right. For this issue, just to be making more space to fit more people. Space is not a problem. No push comes to shove, you put us agenda outside in the parking lot and we pray under the rain or the snow, people will still come no matter how busy it is. People still come if they feel that they're a part of something. I want to

00:13:43 --> 00:14:12

make that very clear before us what it's about because it's important that this is what Allah Subhanallah means when he talks about communities and societies in decline. So he means doesn't mean what we're doing. He does not mean what we are doing right now. So when you wonder why is it that we're not making the progress we should be making is because when he's talking about society has been muted, he doesn't mean this he means something different. He means something that has some centralization to it, like the prophets, I send them Do you centralize everything, please don't do so. And that's why he was so successful. Everything was centered. Right? Just like That's why

00:14:12 --> 00:14:35

countries are successful, no matter how poor they are, those countries are so hold on because you centralize everything and and as communities is much more difficult, but it's doable. And I'm asking, I believe if we can just invest anything at all, anything, I don't even have a preference. And I don't even prefer anything, I'm happy with anything. Whatever works, we whatever we can

00:14:36 --> 00:15:00

get some representation for within our society where everyone or the majority of people come together to do something similar then that will be great. And you will see the fruits of that within a very, very short period. Let's read the example that Allah says he gives his name as two examples. One that is beautiful and very uplifting. That is very encouraging and one that is the opposite. Now the Sunnah was

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

Named by the one that is the opposite thing by separate named by zoo has nothing to do with also a man named seven because that's the fear because the fear is to be like that

00:15:10 --> 00:15:41

the fear is that we end up like Simba at some point, which I think we already have. But nonetheless you can still learn from the example your example is still there is still relative is still relevant to us sorry, but we can still take something from it and preventing further further failure and further loss and maybe turn things around and come something similar to what Dell wouldn't have been man had not obviously we can't do it exactly the same because that's something else kind of gave you the profits but he will give us a number of points here that are worthy of reflection I this is one of my favorite chapters or passages of the Quran

00:15:43 --> 00:15:55

I'll admit to you that's one of the reasons that I chose to start from that was hoping to come to this point so he explained it so so we'll start the show from a number 10 of students we lay in in a che on your body

00:15:59 --> 00:16:02

Bismillah of watchman your Mahi

00:16:06 --> 00:16:10

what Dana Amin felt

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


00:16:17 --> 00:16:19

yeah Jeeva we the

00:16:21 --> 00:16:22


00:16:26 --> 00:17:06

so whenever we have a second like silent about the end of the word and there's a yet before it was going to be about the all the time if there's a yeah before it that is has gone on it mean look at the edges going on it and we stopped that right that's after it that 100% is going to be regardless of what was before regardless whether the plot before the fat hat or the lawnmower or the castle doesn't matter if there's a yeah before the Second Circuit is going to be able to beat well boy if you if you were to continue with what are your What are your what it becomes at that point because as a photographer if you were to continue what Ellen Hadid

00:17:09 --> 00:17:15

Annie Melissa be or do you deal with his cell phone did

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


00:17:21 --> 00:17:29

deal with deal so the right here is also worth talking about but deal fi cell V cell and so the right here

00:17:31 --> 00:17:53

there's a bunch a bunch of dilemmas in the in this passage. So I want you to try and see if you can, if you can read them properly. There's gonna be a few more and the girl has. So what's the deal with the seller? The seller? That's always supposed to sell Okay, of course we're discontinuing facility if you're going to continue to do a citation.

00:17:54 --> 00:17:56

Well, man who saw the

00:17:59 --> 00:18:03

in the beamer dammit men who, whenever they'll see you

00:18:08 --> 00:18:42

right off the bat, you know, he's talking about something about society to communities, because he's using his name and we'll see you he's not using his name clubby. Here, he's not using Samia. And these these names differ. And what is the purpose of their usage, Comey here is always talking about things that are inside that I can't see they're not visible to me, I don't know what's happening inside of you know what you're thinking. So he is clearly you know, who's Semia it's always about what you say. And what you say can be public and can be can be personal. So it's not necessarily public, the seal is seeing what you do. And what you do is public, meaning it's something that

00:18:42 --> 00:19:14

people will witness as well. So whenever you use it, I don't want to either he's referring to something that you will do that will be visible to others as well. So it's a public endeavor, when he says could be yours to me. And then it's most likely going to be something a bit more specific, albeit being very specific, semi being less specific or less personal. And then I name is just the game that is used for everything, meaning when he when the point is not to specify whether it's personal or less personal or public, and he'll use it use. And this is just a breakdown of use of the name. So when you hear people say, you know, off the bat, he's talking about things that I'd be

00:19:14 --> 00:19:43

visible mean actions that people will witness as well. So it's not something that I can't witness know something, I will mean something that affects me a part of my day to day because when you do when your home is your business, I know it's gonna my dad, I don't care. And I shouldn't I shouldn't be trying to get into your home to find out how you're behaving unless what you're doing is affecting someone else. Unless there's domestic abusers or there's mistreatment of individuals and that cases we'll see you is supposed to or because someone else is witnessing it, but what you do when on your own time is something I should not be trying to look into. That's I can give you advice

00:19:43 --> 00:19:59

if you need it. But that's not something we're supposed to be trying to necessarily change. However, what we do want to change what we do want to influence in effect is what is witnessed by others what will affect the life or the outcome of other people and that's why he used his name and he gave you my document and when they will see you i

00:20:00 --> 00:20:45

Indeed, regarding what you do all see you and to make it even more clear, he said the last time I knew regarding what you do so it's it's always comforting to clarify that he's talking about things that are done actions and that are witnessed and that will most likely affect other people. No. So the first that's just to kind of show you how things work when the nddc Swearing saponified always taking an oath. And indeed, I swear that we have given or we have we have offered Yeah, who would from ourselves fella fella is bounty or something that's extra, or something. So there's a different there's different words that are used regarding what is always something extra. Something that is is

00:20:45 --> 00:20:47

that you don't necessarily need to survive

00:20:50 --> 00:21:28

for example, Mercy is the is the least you can get that's your baseline if you want a bit more if I didn't example is justice is the again, a baseline but photo photo is something extra something is when you don't necessarily deserve this. I don't have to give it to you. It's not something I exactly, but I didn't promise you this is something I want to give you that is a bit extra a bounty or is a good word. We love it. And that would mean what was the formula that we are used to and was offered. So he starts to break it down. So the first one yeah Jeeva so this is Allah Subhanallah speaking

00:21:29 --> 00:21:31

these these type of words of the client are very,

00:21:32 --> 00:21:34

very magnificent and very, very

00:21:35 --> 00:21:51

efficient. They should offer you putting your heart some level of reverence. When you hear lots of other calling upon his creations. He says yeah, no, Cooney better than was said to him and he calls upon the faces Oh, fire me this in this one. He brought him in it does. or Allah subhanaw taala

00:21:52 --> 00:22:34

Yeah, Abu Ibrahim Oh over to take down the water. We SML went oh sky. How can you stop stop reading? He calls upon His creation, some high notes. I know. He stopped doing it. And they stop. And then he calls the pilots out of here. Yeah, Juba low mountains. Oh, Wiebe, it we've been with WTI we've means for you. So if someone's singing, and then you sing along, or you repeat what you heard that stuff that we've just got to, you're returning back to them, what they have said, Now the word a web is another derivative is someone who returns to Allah subhanaw taala. Often, someone who always returns to Allah, Allah. Lead is when you hear something, and you return it back, you say echo it

00:22:34 --> 00:22:47

back? Yeah, G back o Wiebe echo back. What he says is that without you sit down was the first of the prophets to be given a book that had a form of citation.

00:22:49 --> 00:23:23

So, for example, the Bible was not like that. The Bible does not have rules every citation, neither does the the Torah. First, the Old Testament, they don't have forms are presentation component and does when you read, we teach you how to say things I tell you, here's the law is the art, it sounds like this, in this situation, or something like that, I'll give you a small rules in terms of how you're going to do it. And there's a method here and there's all these little rules, right? That don't necessarily affect the meaning they don't affect the meaning. If you read the Quran, without those rules, the meaning will still be the same. You didn't You didn't really take off the content.

00:23:23 --> 00:24:02

But it's a it's a method of a citation, the first of those who had that was dealt with on Easter, and therefore, the songs he was he had a method of reciting the songs. And he would do it beautifully, just like we would we do to the Quran. And the Prophet SAW Selim and a number of Hadith would refer to the fact that doe dies, I had a beautiful, beautiful voice when he recited and in a nice story, he was walking some Allah who is like, there's no one's by the House of other Sahaba. And he was walking at night and he heard here's someone you can hear like someone saying something. So he comes closer to the wall to hear, let's then he can hear someone reciting the Quran to someone

00:24:02 --> 00:24:04

who's actually sitting in his barn

00:24:06 --> 00:24:46

with the animals and he's just chilling, apparently, after a long day of work, and he's just there. So he's doing some crime before he goes home or before he goes to bed. So we read the Quran and he had a beautiful voice. So the low ones, he's reading a nice book and the Prophet says, I'm stood there for a certain period of time listening, and then he went home. And he, he said, about Musa semiotica Laila to Quran I heard you last night reciting Quran, Allah ditta Mismaloya mimosa, Amelia Liddell would you were given one windpipe from amongst it from from the windpipe that we were given was given so apparently had like a piano worth of windpipes and yeah, so the Musa had one one key

00:24:46 --> 00:25:00

right that's what the brother is telling him. Musa wasn't too excited about that he didn't like anyone didn't have more for us and Allah No, I didn't do any smarter neither have got to connect. To you listening I would have done a very different I was just playing her. I didn't know you were listening. I would have

00:25:00 --> 00:25:35

read much better and I know you were listening because before but we find examples like that in the zeal of the prophets I send them a referring to the beauty of a downward voice and his beautification of Israel reciting this rule that he had in his hands. So here and there's nothing There's examples of personal Quran besides this, as we'll talk about Venezuela referred to as well. Yeah, Japan, a Wiebe novel, oh, mountains, echo back to him. Right? What he says, What are you and me and me? And is it so it's Yajima? And he'll tell you, that's how it's supposed to be Anytime he's calling upon upon birds as well.

00:25:36 --> 00:25:59

There are two ways to understand these verses. There's one way of saying that the mountains and the trees of the animals actually recycled back to him what he said, and I'm okay with that. And there's certain evidence that could support that not as strong as I would like, but there is there or there is something different. What because a Wiebe can mean in it, the concept of echoing something back or

00:26:02 --> 00:26:26

interacting with something. So the concept, we've also has the interaction, the response to someone, do you respond back to him, so the idea being that the dog dies, and we sit down and read and it was done that he had a high is where he where he would recite with the on top of a hill, and he would read and he would echo back to him from the mountain, and that the birds would respond to him me that would come and do swarm around him.

00:26:28 --> 00:27:06

So it's more of a responsive interaction, being a part of it, then it's actually them saying the words and we know that all everything, that's the speed, everything does disappear. But do they do just get the same way we do it? No, of course, obviously. Not. Not they don't do it using the voice vibrations, specifically anyway, but everything well, I can let us know what it is. However, you don't have the ability to recognize their disappear. Does that make sense? So when he says yeah, gee, bad, oh, mountains, oh, we be mountain echo what he recites or respond to him, as he says, well played and birds do the same. That doesn't necessarily mean that he would say the words and the

00:27:06 --> 00:27:45

mountain would speak with him. And the version of the sentence doesn't necessarily mean that if you understand how the Quran works, in terms, it's a figure of speech, meaning that everything was harmonized, was harmonized, without without Isa, it was in synchrony, or the Allah was ISIS was sound with reciting the Quran, there's a rule, and then everything around him, would, would harmonize with him. So and that's how it's supposed to be the book that you carry. If you follow it, then you will find yourself to be in perfect harmony with the world, that that exists around you. What you're being taught in this book will not cause you to clash with the universe that Allah

00:27:45 --> 00:28:17

subhanaw taala created, however, it will allow you to synchronize and harmonize with it. That's why you go to the lower you go when you and you counterclockwise, you rotate around around your center, just like every atom, and every Sunday and every everything on the smallest thing that we have the largest thing in the universe, everything is rotating around his center, and you go and you rotate around your center as well for synchrony and for harmony with everything else that was created. If you understand that book, then that's what you're going to end up becoming someone who is in

00:28:18 --> 00:28:24

at peace with the world around them. So they would die somebody would recite, there's a bullet everything would respond to.

00:28:25 --> 00:28:34

Is there anyone else in the Quran Ohyes guides from the prophets. Here's where here's where reflection becomes important to understanding. Well, so the prophets were it was given that.

00:28:36 --> 00:28:54

Okay, no one that's the answer. No one was given that it was only that we had that, why? Why do they say, Oh, that wasn't important to individuals. Very important character. Within just 25 characters, you'll have 25 prophets and around 10 other characters in the plan that will just very, very special

00:28:56 --> 00:28:58

support they understand what he represents.

00:28:59 --> 00:29:07

So if you begin reading from the beginning, these are the five tires read the first 29 verses of Surah Baqarah verse number 30,

00:29:08 --> 00:29:11

you will find we have caught up with alumina hitting right in the giant with all the

00:29:12 --> 00:29:40

Khalifa would put on Earth, a honey find someone, a successor someone's going to take, who's going to run things are going to be responsible on my behalf for MIT. That's what Cleveland means. That was a concept that was new. You don't find that narrative in the Bible. You do not find that narrative in the Torah in the Old Testament. This narrative is unique to the Quran. So even those who were religious before the prophesy senator was given his prophecy when they heard that

00:29:42 --> 00:30:00

that's that's new. That's totally I'll give it to Muhammad. He came up with no idea you guys totally original because a lot of them were saying I was gonna love what you you didn't get your Muhammad yet. You didn't bring anything new. It's all the same story, the same prophet, same characters from the Old Testament New Testament Ibrahim and then Musa Raisa same people, you haven't brought anything new, and then he brought this now

00:30:00 --> 00:30:15

narrative that was new, that was totally unique and original. There was no example for it. But Sunil Gupta was revealed in the second or third year because he lost the audience and right so around 15 years into his prophecy, which is only 23 years to begin with. When was the first time they heard the word Khalifa.

00:30:16 --> 00:30:50

I give a flipbook about this a number of years ago, where's the first thing in the Quran where they heard the word Fatima? Because that's the word does unique word that concept is unique in the Quran. As the human being being described as something positive, not negative. You're not here because you messed up and heaven ate an apple. You're not here because you're paying for your sins or other people's sins. No, you're here because I intended for you to be the person the one who's going to take on responsibilities in his name. You're here to build to make things better to live in to learn that's what you're here for. It's a positive to the first time they heard it. Where was it?

00:30:51 --> 00:31:03

Solid, very good. Where give me a second verse. Yeah, who yada yada we do in Agile NACA Khalifa tempted off the first time they attach to that?

00:31:04 --> 00:31:15

They never did, they never heard the word before was attached to why nowadays. All right, I'll tell you why. Because then we got Eastern was a prophet. He was a king. And he was a judge.

00:31:16 --> 00:31:30

And he was a warrior. And he was a commander. And he was an artist. And he was an inventor, as you're gonna see in a moment, and he was a craftsman. And he was an economist, and he was a father, a brother, a husband,

00:31:32 --> 00:31:52

and a religious leader, and a social and a public speaker, I actually, there's one more 50, there's actually 5015 roles that we that, incidentally, is a very multi dimensional human being, how most of us will live our lives, maybe playing one or two roles. And if you play them, well, then you're good. You're your sibling, you're a son.

00:31:54 --> 00:32:09

You're a parent, your spouse, whatever profession that you have your friend, these are the roles that you have your Muslim being the honey for being the role that you play those roles properly, do your job in each role, make sure that you fulfill it to its

00:32:11 --> 00:32:21

to its full potential and you're good, you'll will pay I mean, you can say, here's why I was this and this and that as being a honeypot. These were the roles assigned to me, I took care of all of them, I did not mess up any of them.

00:32:22 --> 00:32:57

And some of us don't understand life to be like that. mean, we understand the concept that we're given roles, you have certain roles, and you have to meet certain expectations within those roles. You're required to, as a father, to spend a certain amount of time with your kids and provide for them and teach them to raise them. As a spouse, you're required to spend time with your wife and your husband and and to be there for them both emotionally. And personally, psychologically, you're a sibling, you Oh, you're rocking, or your your, your siblings and your family members and your son you owe your parents is that what we're taught?

00:32:58 --> 00:33:25

Everybody, Dana, so it's a lot of words are what they really are. He says, here is how you're supposed to fulfill that role. You're a part of a family, you had to throw him fulfill that role like this, your assigned job anyway, these are going to fulfill that role. He's just telling you how to fulfill your roles. That's all it is. To deal with it. Sam is the ultimate example of someone who plays so many roles. He was an artist, he recited the Quran in a way and does it in a way that no one else did. He would have a beautiful voice. He was known for it. He was famous for it. He was a judge.

00:33:26 --> 00:33:39

And he was a he was a king, a political leader. And he was a warrior. He fought and he and he led wars. I mean, he was a war commander as well. And he was a prophet. And he was a public speaker. And he was an inventor, you're gonna see in a moment

00:33:40 --> 00:33:46

that he was a craftsman. He made things with his hands. So he finally plays all these roles. He doesn't

00:33:48 --> 00:34:22

mean he plays all those roles to the extent he needs to, and he was successful at all. Of course, he is the ultimate example of that meaning not well, actually, not most of us. None of us can actually live up to that. But it explains why the prophets I send them when he was asked about fasting and praying What did you say? They can go you know, understand why he's a hug. We'll see on Nila. So yeah, without cardio soon we all moved to Rio, many would fascinate brachioplasty and the province I think was the I can't do it even though he did and he slipped up but he would say couldn't do it, that he would he wouldn't be he would humble themselves and I can't do that. But he used to do more

00:34:24 --> 00:34:41

variety in Allah. So I've dealt with the most beloved fair at night was Peridot. Kinda Yeah, that was when they were fools, several animals to do so. We will sleep hard tonight pray a third in the sleep of six we did every night. So there we are SLM was someone who in order to fulfill all these roles had to be

00:34:42 --> 00:35:00

very much organized. Because keep that in the back of your head, in very organized person really asked him in time, time management, understood that he had all these roles to fulfill. He was a Khalifa he was a true Khalifa and that's why the first time they heard the word Khalifa. He was dealt with on this and I'm so excited

00:35:00 --> 00:35:02

After the Sahaba were presented that

00:35:03 --> 00:35:21

a role model to aspire to you resume what about people or human moves? Yes, of course, I named myself to some edge remain. But it's less clear for them than it is for me there was more clarity as an easier example to give. That was an easier example for them to date because he played a lot of different roles. For example, when he my son was never a kid.

00:35:23 --> 00:35:28

As I said, I was ever a husband or a father, or a son into a full father at least, to see the least

00:35:29 --> 00:36:10

musante used to them. I never fought a war never actually went about. So you look all these profits is always something that was missing. The only two that had a full story was the prophet Mohamed salah. endod. Right, so you understand why he was important for this example. Those who fulfilled a lot of roles, or the highest number of roles in their lives was dealt with Islam and Mohamed Salah Musa is in, for example, there were similarities from his story, the story of the Prophet. So I said, I'm having two different periods in his life, many Muslims, there was a period where He was oppressed to have to stand up against the oppressors. And then another period where he led socially

00:36:10 --> 00:36:29

a group. However, and that's why the what you'll find most is just the front of much more than that will because those parallels were important to the profit slice and development in terms of running things. However, it in terms of roles in terms of the concept of Hanifa, well, Hamlet doesn't even know who played the most roles. And he played every role you can imagine.

00:36:30 --> 00:37:08

He did everything you need to do. And he's example and all that was told maybe even a bit more, in terms of certain things, certain things. And the example there is important for us to learn from, that's why we're not going to attain them in public that he was offered much more than everyone else in terms of the opportunities. And that's the third that the final point before I explain the rest of the verses is that opportunity matters as well. Sometimes the number of roles that you will play is attached to whatever tool you're given you your life, not all of us are given the same level of opportunity. So we can't play the same, the same number of roles, sometimes you can't have kids just

00:37:08 --> 00:37:40

kind of gets you have a disease kind of gets. So you can't be a father in your life for whatever reason. So that role is taken away from you, you didn't do anything wrong, just not are you're born, I was born an orphan. So we'd never be able to be a son. So there wasn't able to fulfill everybody. That's okay. Not example, the prophet size in them never actually got to do that in the way that he would have liked like do because he didn't have them around to to do. So certain roles are not given, sometimes you will grow up in a certain way where you're not a leader of a community, you don't have to be in order for you to be a Khalifa, you don't have to be the leader of the community,

00:37:40 --> 00:37:58

you don't have to be the person on the Minbari not even the person who's calling all the shots, you just have to be the best you can be in the roles that you're given in the roles that you are given that you have to fulfill. Now, if you're young, and you're listening to me, you're smart, you will broaden your horizons. So you have more opportunities, so you can play more roles.

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

Than we on Instagram I put on I think he was an athlete. When I said I was known to be very, very muscular. And to be able, you know, you know, the slingshot that was that was a sport back in the day. And that was what was top notch in throwing it and getting it as far as this. These are old sports that existed. So he's an athlete as well. So the roles you can play are based on your younger life, what you actually what you actually do with your life. And you broaden your horizons, you make sure that you're learning everything you possibly learn. So you can play a lot of different roles so they can be a true believer, or are you already limiting yourself. So you don't do one or two, some

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

people are limited by

00:38:41 --> 00:39:17

again, by feats, they live their lives in a certain part of the world where they don't have any rules, they can barely get one roll they and they do is because they worked hard for it. And Allah will reward them for that. But you are living here and healthy and alive, Mala you'll be asked him why didn't you play Mortal? Why don't you get a more diverse where's your enough dough without a sudden you have the opportunity to be all these things, to be a religious figure and to be a political figure and to be an athlete, to be an artist and to be a craftsman and professional and to be a spouse and to be a fun to be all these different things that you can be and they're not

00:39:17 --> 00:39:37

impossible to do. And they're not hard to do, the more you do almost will give you more. And this is how societies stand up. Because we're being taught here. This is how communities rise, their individuals become more dynamic and more diverse. Yes, there'll be something you'll specialize in something that you're really good at, that you'll be known for. But you fulfill all the other roles, and you do it properly. And if we all did that,

00:39:38 --> 00:39:46

then you'll see the right you see what do you think the percentage of people is what Representative people is needed for a community to rise

00:39:47 --> 00:39:48

to be a social

00:39:49 --> 00:39:55

sociological studies that exist? What is the percentage you think people

00:39:56 --> 00:39:59

give me give me 2% in 2% of any population

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

Give me 2% And you can change, you can everyone else just follow the steps, everyone else is gonna line, I can also just do because most people don't care. And they just need someone to someone with a microphone who's walking in direction, just 2% of any community, and you can change things around. I always like that number because when I think about it,

00:40:20 --> 00:40:36

I used to give examples, maybe here they're less, more difficult in that we're gonna lay it locally, but it's a big if you had three 30 million people 2% is not too hard to achieve. If you break down the numbers, you go 3000 Muslims in London was 2%.

00:40:38 --> 00:40:39


00:40:40 --> 00:40:41


00:40:42 --> 00:40:54

people up. So you're gonna be under people in a society like this, who are committed, who are Khalifa each one in their mindset, they understand that they're playing holes, then you will have a society that was standing in,

00:40:55 --> 00:41:02

cycles arise and it'll work in centralization will happen, it'll come together. This is why the Buddha is another story comes here.

00:41:03 --> 00:41:17

His story specifically, was going to be in sort of seven to talk about to talk about societies and communities that thrive in that thought he had to be the positive example doubled, will meant a lot to the Muslims in early ages went up.

00:41:18 --> 00:41:44

And another thing is that the way that Jews looked at them was actually in a negative light mean, I mean, we differ from the Jews in terms of how we see dealt with Elisa, we see him to be a prophet of Allah subhanahu COVID All these rules, who was not assume did not make here you know, the cupboard in mistakes that are ethically I need the compromising. However, the Jews didn't see that. This is an example of how their history of the way they look at the history of their own profits is actually

00:41:46 --> 00:41:55

quite problematic. So without further I think that that would have been a problem. Glendale should be clear to you what it means. Yeah, do you bad who a weenie, not a little player, oh mountains and birds

00:41:56 --> 00:42:02

respond to him and synchronize with him? Well, I then had eat and we made Iren.

00:42:05 --> 00:42:49

bendable or so lean is something that is that is easy, or something that is not solid. It's not liquid, but something that is much more manipulate manipulable in your hands. So usually Iran is something it's a block, it's a piece of steel that is hard to manipulate. So I know that we had a meet we made iron manipulable for him, you can manipulate it but you learn the craft, he learned the science of how to take how to take iron and then manipulate it so you can have it look and function the way that you want it to function. At the end of the day. When you take it from the mineral you take it from the ground. How do you actually turn it into a sword or turn it into steel or turn it

00:42:49 --> 00:43:12

into a car turn it into the foundations of a house or whatever you need to turn it into this is science that has only existed on a public measure on the public scale for a number of you know for a couple of decades. But why Sam was offered that science you can do it I said I was an inventor he was someone who knew how to manipulate metal why then it would Hadid why. And here are metal Serbia, right.

00:43:13 --> 00:43:15

So Serbia, Serbia, but

00:43:16 --> 00:43:19

it's a figure of speech that is describing

00:43:21 --> 00:43:54

they call them a blade meals right is that what they call the more chain meals, what they used to people used to wear and wore long time ago. Now if you go back in history, you'll find that a certain point in a story until this day are clear on what happened. But we understand it that it was dealt with and he said I'm actually made the change is that people used to wear a piece of metal, just just a block of metal on this site about it makes it extreme. Imagine you're carrying to conjure or one in front of you and behind you and you're walking around in the battle with two piece just blocks of metal, it makes it it's very difficult to fight. It's very difficult to move. It's

00:43:54 --> 00:43:57

very hard, you don't have that you see them and older.

00:43:58 --> 00:44:33

If you watch like medieval movies that talk about the medieval medieval age, you'll see these guys wearing armor is just a piece of metal. And they're very, you don't have the flexibility. They're very slow in their movement, it's very hard to kind of maneuver with that. What happened later on is that they made something called Chain meals. Jane meals were also they were worn, but they were small pieces of metal if you've got a brother here or there last year, who brought in chain meals a couple of times into the best food to show people and he weren't used to wearing them for us. And I think some of the boys can wear them. So some of the things were the they're actually quite heavy

00:44:33 --> 00:44:59

when you wear them but you can move around, you can actually actually move your arms around with it. And if you hit it with a sore just sort of go through it like what did we sell them be but they're mean be very accurate or be very precise. The salad salad is when you're needing something. Salad is used for speech as well. If I speak on if I'm on fire, if I'm on a rant I'm going in a smooth rhythm is called 70 just going on and on and when it's used for knitting

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

It may just keep on going in a straight line at what they used to do, what they did was what they were doing is he has manipulated metal, he would, he would melt it. And they suddenly had just a piece of metal in front, it was made into small little pieces that were stitched or knitted together. And it turned into something that was much more flexible, and much lighter and did the same job. If you were jabbed with a with a sword, it wouldn't go through. If you're made fifth grade, the piece of metal wouldn't go through if you're wearing this chainmail mill is not going to go through either. This was a game changer in terms of warfare, in terms of

00:45:38 --> 00:45:40

the cost of making of making armor,

00:45:42 --> 00:46:10

and the flexibility in using it on within war. And it changed a lot of things. And you can see the armies within the maybe the last 200 years that learned that learn that craft quick earlier, made more advances in the Muslims. Hi, this is an old is old track that dough nice. And I came up with nice offers. I mean, there are a lot of civilizations that in the past that had just as much knowledge as we have today. And you may it may

00:46:12 --> 00:46:21

surprise you to hear to hear that certain civilizations in the past had a lot of knowledge. But what why? Why is it that didn't continue. What was lacking was the

00:46:22 --> 00:46:59

was the ability to benefit from other groups of people. What the Muslims did in the middle in the Middle Ages is that we took their knowledge of every group of the Africans and the Chinese and the Indians and the Iranians and the Greek and we translated it all into Arabic, we all translate into the same language and put in the same libraries. So by the time you woke up, they found all all the product of human knowledge in one place. And what led you to do is I get a couple of people to read the language translated into Latin. And now you had you had access to everything that the human race has come up with. And that's why the advances were made today, you were so huge, because you have so

00:46:59 --> 00:47:16

much knowledge to work with, are there civilizations they had they knew things, but they were isolated from others, because a lot of words going on. And if that civilization fell, usually what happened was going to be that everything that they produced was meant to be burned to the ground, it would be lost. And there's so many examples of that where one

00:47:17 --> 00:47:39

group beats the other groups with the engineers what they do, they burned everything. They burned their books. And that was always a dumb thing to do ya bring their books, there's a lot and they've already started a couple of stuff that you didn't just take it no and burn the book, and print the books now. And we'll wait another 300 years before you can figure it out what they already figured out and with the Muslims is that we enter into people's countries we didn't burn.

00:47:41 --> 00:47:53

We let them Okay, stay as is whatever, whatever your What good do you have? Let's take a look. And then that was benefited from because it was a different mentality altogether. This was the mentality that they took Muslims in the early ages at least.

00:47:54 --> 00:48:00

So what I'm not I would have even made metal manipulative manipulatable for him, for him to make

00:48:01 --> 00:48:06

a change knows what a diff is solid and be very accurate and precise and how you're going to knit it together.

00:48:07 --> 00:48:15

Of course doing that meant to do that is I was gonna become much stronger than all the other kingdoms around him which actually have and you would want to rule

00:48:17 --> 00:48:30

the old rules in the sense in which the whole world, the world will be the Middle East, and Northern Africa, Eastern Europe or parts of Europe and western Asia, at least that's on the planning perspective, because other parts of the world that we're doing at that time.

00:48:32 --> 00:49:09

That's why if you're gonna have that strength, I after a while, I'm going to sign now you need to, you need to do good. If you're given if you're going to strength more than others, if you're given advantage over others, now you're required. You're required to be better, you're required to behave better, you're required to use up to take that responsibility seriously and to use the advantage that you are given by Allah subhanaw taala properly that's why man who saw it and use it for the for good. Don't use it for evil. Don't become strong and powerful and capable with an army that numbers

00:49:10 --> 00:49:45

26 countries under you and then use it for evil use it to harm others and use it to oppress more people and to cause more chaos into it to shed more blood that's that's not how it's supposed to what am I musalia use it for good you're given knowledge by almost hunting you're given an advantage by Allah subhanaw taala Are you able to discover something that people before you did not know? And now you will know it's gonna give you an edge use it for good why Manuel saw it as a hidden need in that time I knew it up they'll see it I've been watching. I'm watching to see what you're going to use it for. Oh, he's gonna use it for you're gonna use it to sell more weapons and to kill more

00:49:45 --> 00:49:47

people and to destroy more countries and

00:49:48 --> 00:49:51

cause more death and agony and poverty.

00:49:53 --> 00:49:55

choice you can make a choice you can make

00:49:57 --> 00:49:59

it an extremely important word right after told it

00:50:00 --> 00:50:06

with that and that is why the Buddha is civilization in contrast and in comparison to other civilizations

00:50:07 --> 00:50:20

is that it was built on faith he was given all that was given all that biomass power he was given a narrative that echoed and synchronize with everything around him and knowledge that was going to give him an advantage and an edge over everyone okay

00:50:22 --> 00:50:23

so we're going to do is

00:50:24 --> 00:50:34

you're going to be the best you can be you're going to do good with it you want to use it for a very good cause. Because why because Allah subhanaw taala told us so so industrialist okay

00:50:39 --> 00:50:39


00:51:13 --> 00:51:14


00:51:18 --> 00:51:19

the way

00:51:33 --> 00:51:35


00:51:39 --> 00:51:39

a schedule it

00:51:42 --> 00:51:43

was good

00:51:51 --> 00:51:55

to learn more

00:51:58 --> 00:52:00

I see

00:52:07 --> 00:52:08

the world of small

00:52:14 --> 00:52:15


00:52:21 --> 00:52:25

Are you the fella

00:52:30 --> 00:52:36

long way to go long enough to

00:52:43 --> 00:52:43


00:53:01 --> 00:53:07

you when is with a man in rehab who has who will always share

00:53:14 --> 00:53:16

what I sell my

00:53:18 --> 00:53:19


00:53:20 --> 00:53:38

this name this word heal people if you stop, stop after the raw if you continue as a customer so, it's Morocco three three but if you stop it's one of the few words in the Quran where you can actually do it either way is used to clean water is always permissible for you to do two or three minutes

00:53:39 --> 00:54:14

or do theaters a little so you can do either ways where there's a couple of words in the Quran that you have the permissibility within house on house and Marley citation that we use of course I'm not talking about all the other citations he's talking about are the ones that we use mysteries specifically we just have some awesome nobody to shelter via this is the name of their citation you have the permissibility here to do the female typical stop at the end of the word if you continue yeah the customers are going to rock up anyway but if you stop you can do either way. Okay when Nina Jean a young man being a he is New York being

00:54:21 --> 00:54:27

me I mean whom and I'm Marina vehicle me neither be sorry

00:54:35 --> 00:54:59

when he saw the imaginary meaning and there's a word that is that is deleted here or that is not in there. That means that the idea of it that and we have offered taking that node, and we'll take it out so that you might have the earlier so this is this here is a conjunction what he's been a man with first, the beginning of the IE number 10 with Tina. So it's just a continuation. And that's important because the point of the

00:55:00 --> 00:55:36

This verse is talking about continuity, that the old guy was able to achieve all this because he did Armando Saudi, he did Saudi how we thought he was given with the, with the elements that he was offered the element. First element was the faith that he was given. And the second element that he was given was the knowledge that he had. So of course, he needed at least some knowledge, it wasn't just faith that he built a society on, it didn't build a civilization on faith, exclusively, he built it on knowledge as well, the knowledge of how to use manipulate iron. And then when you take dealt with them and study them bit deeper, you already know that he's playing at least 16 1516

00:55:36 --> 00:55:59

roles. So he has everything else working, there's a judicial system, and there's a financial system, and there is an army and he has a full blown kingdom, that gets the nucleus of at the basis of in his favor, he has everything else functioning properly. And because of that, it was off, it was given continuity. That's what he said, A man who's next to life, there's going to be someone who's gonna be able to continue this as well is not going to stop and die with him.

00:56:01 --> 00:56:44

If the components or the elements of your society are not fulfilled, once the leader price is done, it dies off had the Prophet sallallahu Sallam not done his job properly. And the time he died would have been the end of it all. He's done with a kind of, you know, ended there or became smaller. However, the opposite happened. He he passed away. So I was looking for and he saw Islam come to full fruition in the world, right. And when he passed away is that was, was actually limited to a very small part of the world, just not even all of Arabia, not all of the peninsula 30 years after he passed away, so the kingdom of Islam was in three continents, running probably the biggest empire

00:56:44 --> 00:56:45

of its time.

00:56:46 --> 00:56:48

Easy and easy estimate.

00:56:49 --> 00:57:25

Because you build things properly, because you have the nuclear the base of the foundation of his face, you make sure all the elements or the all the other elements are there, then it will it will come to fruition and it will continue in the next person, the third person, the fourth person, will it will it maybe will there be a point where it fails, maybe if the elements that existed are used properly, if they're manipulated, and if they're if corruption finds its way in in the nucleus, the basis of faith doesn't exist anymore. Yeah, I can find that when that happens. You don't everything in the world has has a cycle. And it fluctuates. Nothing's perfect. Even though we are used to

00:57:25 --> 00:57:37

demonstrate King demonstrate as your kingdom came to a point where they fell as well. Doesn't mean that wasn't built on something good just meant that those who came later didn't necessarily use it the way they were supposed to then continue the legacy but they were given.

00:57:39 --> 00:58:02

So the concept of three man coming here is also the idea of continuity that it was continued after him. I think he saw what he said a man in rehab maybe offers to a man Isilon the ability to use the wind. Now, again, again, this could be understood in two different ways or two ways understand these words, just like we talked about the mountains and the birds a moment ago, same thing, you're going to understand that some narrations may

00:58:04 --> 00:58:43

type over for me describe that's the name I sent him was given the wind to manipulate however you want to do, like something similar to a legends match or something like that, where you can go wherever you want. And I have no problem with that. If that is truly what you side by I am fine with that he is a prophet of Allah subhanaw taala he can be awful. I think I think it's something different. I think it's actually the understanding of how to use the seasonal winds just like declaration and figured out how to melt down Iran and then manipulate it in a way where it can be used much more efficiently and effectively. Right then for chain meals, the same thing was going to

00:58:43 --> 00:59:19

happen. Fortunately, my eyes and I'm regarding wind, you see what once you understand how the currents work in the world, it's much easier to move ships in fleets of boats in directions that you want to move them into. If you don't and if you don't we know if you watch pirate movies, you may understand what I'm talking about pirates, because they understand they know when it's time to sail you know east and when it's time to sail west based on the time of the year if you want to sail west during the time of the year where the where the wind credit is going east is people love it. What are you doing? We're gonna get into the middle of the sea and be blown in the wrong direction we can

00:59:19 --> 00:59:47

there's nothing we can do because the wind this house is going to run during this time. So today my name is Mo understood that was able and it's no this is again, these are biblical stories or Old Testament stories that his fleets left Philistines left to the Holy Land and and basically ran the Mediterranean Sea. The whole Mediterranean Sea was was swim Iceland's disposal why? Because he understood how the winds were when he said Amen rehab, we'll do our shadow.

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

The course a one course of it coming one way is a month than the other course of it going in other ways a month. You figured out the timings. We're going in different directions. You understood it, and then he used that he was able to strengthen his economy and trade

01:00:00 --> 01:00:37

You made a lot of money. And when you make a lot of money, you become rich and become stronger. So look, the example of diligence here is not specifically talking about faith. It's the nucleus is the basis of their kingdom. But it's not the only element. Other elements were needed in order for them to actually thrive. They needed knowledge, they need insights, they need to understand the nature that was around them. And that is understanding, making sense of that in the Quran is really important. If you look at these prophets, sometimes, these things are explained to us in a very mythical way. So we start benefiting from them, you know, we imagined that he could control

01:00:37 --> 01:00:41

everything. It's not necessarily how it all worked out. It's not necessarily exactly

01:00:43 --> 01:00:44

what I said in level one, you know,

01:00:46 --> 01:01:28

I said, that means we liquefied for him, I know is the flow of copper. So if dealt with it yesterday and was able to learn how to manipulate Byron, so they might have learned how to liquefy copper. And just you see the continuity every they would know how to achieve one thing and no, one step for one step beyond it. Now he's liquefied copper. I mean, that means spring. And of course, there's, I don't think I've ever seen a spring of course, there's no springs of copywriting anywhere. That's not is a figure of speech. I know a couple of means a large amounts of liquefied copper, and it shouldn't matter. I said I'm now not only does he know how to manipulate Iran, he knows how to

01:01:28 --> 01:01:31

liquefy copper. And now when you study, that's what he was doing when he studied

01:01:33 --> 01:01:40

the story of Bill conine, he told him to do the same thing. And he told them that they are going to put up a wall we're going to need we're going to

01:01:41 --> 01:02:22

we're going to put on liquefied copper or to keep things up. And that's what's used today and in the science of it still exists today, if that's what you're interested in. So you can see some MRIs I'm taking the step farther. He has liquefied copper and let me know Ginnie Mae. Yeah, I'm Albania De Niro. And amongst the jinn are those who work with benedi meaning at his command or in front of him we use in the lobby with the will of Allah subhanaw taala well, many years there's a minimum Amina and those of them who choose to disobey the word of Allah azza wa jal, which is to obey for a man or woman either the story will be punished in the in the hellfire.

01:02:23 --> 01:02:32

Now, this is an important part, this is probably the most important part of the story and understanding why it is that

01:02:33 --> 01:03:03

that Allah subhanaw taala talks, talks about Jinn here, and what is the what is the association between ducks in a man on Easter them and, and the figure that the fingertip mean that I'm going to try to establish and run out of enough time today. But until that will happen next week, we're off. Again, so I'm not here next week, I'll be here the week after show Saturday runs Friday and Sunday will not show up because I'm on call. But until the week after that, which gives you some time to read these verses and think about them a bit, because they're very, very important.

01:03:05 --> 01:03:16

How do we use Jim, in our lives today? That's what I want you to think about? How do we as a society use gender in our lives? So a man used him them for something we talked about that isn't the product. But how do we use

01:03:17 --> 01:03:51

it? That's all that's all there therefore, Jin are there for you to scare people with and to use their in their use even for a bit worse than that they're there as a superstition to cause you not to know what was your fault? And what was someone else's fault? And who's to blame? And what's it, we use it for that when someone's sick that it must be a gin must be sad must be that if you fail an exam that you are apparently prepared for that it must be must be genuine, something didn't work out. We always try it if you have an incident of the infant to cough today, more than yesterday that someone must have must have looked at them in the wrong way. Or maybe there's

01:03:52 --> 01:04:11

someone who was mentally ill or need some big brother who's going through PTSD or has ADHD or some some say no psychiatric diagnosis get hot. Maybe there's a genuine side and so we bring the shahada we bring them with that we started hitting the poor person. What because we're using gin for something that we're not supposed to use in your court. That's why I like the example of something that is

01:04:13 --> 01:04:17

the only again, who are the all the prophets who use Jin, besides something that

01:04:18 --> 01:04:46

no one no one else did. Again, these are these guys understand the uniqueness of prophets in the Quran. The Quran tells us there's a lot of Prophets, you only tell you what, 25 Why can you fight because each one of them had a unique part of who they were. I mean, there was something about that profit that you needed to learn that you wouldn't find in someone else. So they might not be something that they would of course explain to you why it's very important character. But so then I said, there's a couple of other stuff that are very unique to him. He was given access to things that other people didn't have access to. He understood he understood how animals function he had an

01:04:46 --> 01:05:00

ability to tame them and sometimes got to communicate with them and he had access to gender of course we don't have but the symbolism at all is that gender we're going to be used in this kingdom that is based on faith and knowledge and and all the other elements that

01:05:00 --> 01:05:41

allowed to thrive, Juniper to be used for something that is something that is helpful, something that will allow you to move forward, not as a as a force that will bring you backwards that will make you weaker or make you less capable of meeting your milestones, as we as we still need professionally do today as Muslims, which is very, very, very weird that we've become a very superstitious community. We have cultures that are that are so invested in superstition that we we there's almost nothing that happens, because of observed reasons. Everything happens because of something that you cannot see, or aim or hazard or gender or something. And that's not how he was

01:05:41 --> 01:06:13

from Allah Islam. And there's not a blood tells us to be like they were supposed to be functioning like that. And it's a very immediate, very, very concerning part of what we become as Muslims is very, very concerning for me work like that. We should not be like that today. And that's something that I urge everyone to think about. Because we all have examples of that within our own lives, meaning I have example, I remember I was 12 years old and a lady came, and she had a liquefied ledge, and she was putting it all in different corners of my house, because that apparently was going to take out all the bad spirits that I need. My grades are pretty funny the educated people

01:06:13 --> 01:06:22

but again, these things find their way. I'll talk about a bit more detail I show next not next week, the week after. Please read these verses and try to think about them and we'll explain them a bit more insurance

01:06:24 --> 01:06:24
