Find it in different students. So you'll you'll see it here and sorted.
But then when you start looking for it in the Quran, you'll see it more often you start to see look at four or five in a row.
So what does that mean? And what what is the point of it. So usually what this means, if not all the time, and of course, this is this is a study on its own. And this is a topic of a an hour and a half lecture, just to categorize the different reasons that Allah subhanaw will put verses that have called in them in a row or clustered together. And the reason usually is to is for the Muslims to establish a common understanding with the other group that they're that they're talking to the weather the other group are people are more 15, for example, so people who live amongst the Muslims claimed to be Muslim, but don't really follow any of the rulings. Right. And that's, that's the
category of Norfolk, or it's non Muslims who live in your country, but there are, there's some form of treaty between you and them, like, like, suited somebody is going to have or you're speaking to non Muslims who are actually in Act, you're in an active war with them, you're actually fighting them, and you're gonna talk to talk to them. But whenever you see
a fee for it in a row, St. Paul, you know that this is Allah subhanaw taala explaining to you what Outlook you're supposed to have with the other group, what I what kind of stuff you're supposed to use for dialogue, and what attitudes you're supposed to have in general. And they're very important. And they're very,
very commonly overlooked and not studied well and not not clearly understood.
A good example is sort of a class that starts pull, who Allah who had in the last day, so in the Quran, pull out, fella can pull out, these are attitudes.
These are general outlooks that you're supposed to have as a Muslim, this is how you function. And whenever you see put in a row, like I told you, it's either giving you a form of a way to have dialogue is giving you an outlook and perspective or is giving you an attitude, one of the three things is happening, depending on who's being spoken to at the time, sometimes who is being spoken to is not clarified at all. I mean, there's no, there's no way for us to find out. And what in that case, is just saying this is what your attitude is supposed to be like. Amongst all people, this is what you're supposed to be very public about this we're supposed to be open about, you should be
openly saying these things and openly acting like this. But in other situations where the opposite side or the side that you're dealing with are, are clarified somehow in the Surah, then this is how you're supposed to be dealing with them and sort of set up to take you back to the beginning of the suit or to explain to you the concept of the theme of it again, here's where understanding themes become so important, and makes the world a world of difference in how you're gonna understand. It's talking about how Muslims how societies are supposed to submit to Allah subhana societies, not not individuals, but rather groups populations that have some form of centralization within their
If you look at the parallels at the beginning of the sewer, the parallels had hummed right at the beginning of an era, and it had knowledge those are the three the three basic concepts of introduction brought forward then gave us two examples example of a society that's submitted to Allah subhanaw taala, and was very successful and was granted kept continuity and was granted the upper hand over everything, even issues of life that we usually defer, find difficulty dealing with, which is what dealt with us today, man story. And the opposite story with the story of Sabah. Well, ALLAH SubhanA, granted wealth and granted money and granted everything However, they did not submit
and everything was taken away with the baraka was taken away, to say the least there but it was it was taken away to say the least. And the form of submission that was clarified in these two stories, which took the form of submission of societies is sugar, it's very important to understand that as societies, we submit to Allah subhanaw taala by being grateful how either offering what we have to those who don't have it, not being wasteful of what we have, and not harming others what we have these are the these how sugar is done, generally speaking, and as societies we do that desire for others, for other groups of people, free of charge, why it's because for the sake of Allah subhanaw
taala. When you look at how societies today function, that's not how it goes at all. You may find individual acts of kindness, but never, ever national acts of kindness. Never. It all comes with a price tag everything, everything when you when a country offers and other country money to build, it's coming with a price tag. And it's usually a really heavy one. It's just not it's not put upfront, and sometimes it's hard to talk about them because a lot of people will take offense to it, but it but it is the truth of the matter. When you look into it, you will find a lot of of individual acts of selflessness, and helpful and helpfulness from people who aren't Muslim, and that
don't have a price tag. But when we talk about countries and populations and societies, it's very different. It's very different as Muslims, the way we submit to Allah subhanaw taala are a form of submission or a form of BA of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala that society is that we are very grateful for what we have. We identify what he gives us upon what data we're grateful for it by making sure that we give back we don't waste and we don't harm either. Oh,
then we read to Wilkinson Ducati he believes who won the
initial expectations, and our bliss Rahula
proves a point. Every time you every time you like submission every time you don't listen to Allah somehow you don't obey, you prove his point, right? You prove them right every time. And there are so many people and groups of people who continuously prove it believes to be correct within their behavior. And the only reason and this is an important part of this thorough this, I actually said the only reason the police is allowed to exist is for the establishment to be made between those who actually believe in the hereafter. And those who are in doubt of the Hereafter not those who disbelieve know, those who are in doubt, there are two categories when it comes to Cuba, either you
believe, or you're in some degree of doubt, even if the degree of Delta you're in is very, very minimal, very small, the only two categories there's no C and Ema. And generally speaking, there's code for Shirke default, Islam, an EMA and all these different categories, all these different readings in belief in ocular, specifically, in your belief in the Hereafter, it's two things, either you are in full certainty of it, or you're in some level of doubt. And you can see how often it comes to play again, it was at the beginning of the SUTA was one of the one of the three lines at the beginning of the sewer that sort of talked about, and it came again into why because the
societies cannot submit, cannot submit to Allah subhanaw taala. If there is not certainty, in Ocula, it's impossible for a society to thrive without full belief with full certainty. And why? Well, because the moment you stop actually believing in it, it's hard for you to accept how we all are given different things, in terms of abilities in terms of talent, and in terms of risk. When it comes to actual society, when you have the lower hand and everything, what could possibly keep you or hold you from going and taking what you want. What could possibly do that, no matter how many cameras they put into, and how many lawns he tried to enforce, the only thing that will make sure
that you live and function as a good citizen, is that you use your belief in knowing that you're going to be resurrected and asked for what you did. And if you know that, then you will continue to act the way Allah subhanaw taala asked you to act, you're not going to do it, because I told you not going to do it, because the President told you not gonna do it. Because the police told you, you're gonna do it because Allah subhanaw taala told you, and the moment that piece of
regulatory authority is gone, then there's really no way for us to control the way societies function at all. There's really nothing we can do. And when this has been seen day after day, and even in countries that are quite wealthy, like the ones that we live in, it's very, it's the hem of people meaning their integrity, and their willingness to respect other people's property and other people's wealth that other people's well being decreases as the day's progress. And we just see it all the time, and then go to countries of chaos. And you'll see even even more, the only thing that can keep societies from from falling to pieces is the belief in earthly law. And this is why this is
here. Because talking about societies here, it's not about what you believe or disbelieve, no, you're either you believe, or you're in a bit of doubt, just a bit of doubt. Yes, you could be in 10% Doubt, and another person you met isn't 90%, though you guys are equal in terms of society functioning, you're the same thing doesn't make a difference. Because the belief in alcohol only actually matters. When things become really difficult. That's where it becomes important. And if you have even the slightest amount of doubt, when it becomes difficult, it'll expose it and expose your doubt. And then you'll make the same mistakes everyone else is making. So right now when everything
is easy, you're gonna be sitting in a room with someone who believes there is no akhira has 5% delta theta. So he has 95% delta nephila, and you're sitting there with the opposite number, you have 95% certainty in Africa, but you have a 5% doubt you are in terms of how societies function and submit to Allah, how societies submit, you're the same, you're the same, because in the moment of Raha the moment of, of leisure and of ease, this is not going to be exposed, you're both going to follow the you know, the rules are going to obey the law you're going to do because you have money because you're healthy and wealthy and things are working out. But when things turn into chaos,
that is when your belief in us is going to be put put to the test. And that's where the expose Do you really believe? Or do you have a little even if you have the smallest amount of doubt it will be exposed that day? And then there'll be no difference between someone who has 5% Doubt and 95% of understanding why is that the sort of specifically talks about it and that form is a very scary idea. It took me years to understand why he used that that wording men men who Amina fishtec Just a small amount of doubt. Then I thought it doesn't everyone have a small amount of doubt and then it gives no not everyone does. And actually that's the whole point of you being a Muslim and working
towards Allah subhanaw taala is that you should not have dough enough because it will be exposed the moment things get hard. Right now you can sit and say no, I believe it a lot. I want it
For the sake of Allah, but it's easy now because you know, there's nothing going on. But what happens when things when your life is on the line? Then what did you still believe in? Hell? Are you still willing to stand your ground and say what you need to say and go for it or not? And then the smallest amount of doubt will be equal to someone who had all changes that maybe you'll run 10 seconds later, you'll just have a head start on running your he ran you just a bit earlier because he knew that he didn't really have you stood a bit longer than you ran. Did you not see the same things with less AB?
What was what was the person that brought that for you can see how the Koran is all works together, the mesh of the art is very, very synchronized
about when they were tested in the battle, so what was the word and then remember the wording
a little bit.
Yeah, at the end of the I
will lay him in a cuppa. So it will fit better. And had the the Confederates entered Medina and then tried to force people, the Muslims to leave their Deen, they would have offered it when I tell them both will be here in LA, you see, they will just wait for a bit. Why? Because they maybe they don't have 90 If they have you know only 10% Don't. So it will take maybe a bit longer other people have already run but they'll stand for that's why every once in a while in this story we find in LA Palina in la sera, they'll stand for a bit just for a bit because it's not 100% Any doubt is actually only 10% down so they can stand for a bit until it gets really hard and then they'll run.
So we'll just give you a bit of an extra couple of seconds of standing and doing what you need to do. But then you'll be like everyone else unless you have certainty enough. If you have certainty, you'll stand up yet because you know that whatever is gonna happen now is much easier than was gonna come your will piano if I don't do what he asked me to do.
Whatever is gonna happen right now, no matter how ugly and horrible and brutal and horrific is going to be in comparison to what's going to happen, you'll milk me if I don't listen, is nothing. So I'd rather go through the difficulty now and find the ease on the day of judgment that the opposite happening unless you're not sure about the Day of Judgment. In that case, the weighing weighing things out is a bit different, like not too sure about this anyway, I'm pretty sure I can get out of here. If I can make it out. Pretty sure I have a way out. And then when I make a way out, I'll make Toba and you know, then I call it in Arabic I used to call the heads of the mind living living the
so your feet and both parts. So if there's I'm praying if there's no alcohol, I'm making sure
I have a foot in each world and there's no alcohol I had a good life and it does ask can I prayed my prayers, Allah subhanaw taala will refuse to let you live like that. I guarantee you will not be given the chance to live like that. He will put you to the test and you will have to prove yourself at one point or the other in your life. Whether you believe that certainty enough can or not, you can do they try to balance it out like I don't know. But I'm I have it working out either way in Shell I've done yeah, I've done enough. No, no, you will be put to the test. And if you haven't been if you'd like Well, I'm 70 and I haven't been put to the test you probably were you failed and have
no idea about it. It probably where you just you don't remember you have to go back into your life and figure that out. And make some changes. Make changes quickly because you can't live Allah subhanaw taala will not
will not Canada who only humans so far, we go back to this area in La Nina Allah mejor, Middleburg urquiola, men who are men who if you shake, either you're certain, or young adult. So today, we'll start with number 22. And if you look at it, 20 220-425-2627, all of them start with one,
right? And then 20 and 30 at the end. So actually, if I were to read the paragraph altogether, I'd read up to 30. That would be the
No, it'd be the end of the paragraph. But we won't have time obviously to do that. But these I have a lot of fun. This is what you're supposed to do. This is your dialogue with the other groups, your societies. Now here. Again, the function here is our societies or as individuals. So as societies, how are we supposed to have dialogue with those who aren't like us who are different than us societies, other groups, other populations, other civilizations or communities that are different, that have different beliefs and function differently? What outlook are we supposed to have with them is when you understand it like that, and that's not me making anything up. But just within the theme
of the surah feeding into the theme of the sutra, you'll find this makes a lot of sense, you'll see this to be that there'll be
idea, there'll be a social one, there'll be an ethical one, there's going to be a behavioral one, there's all these elements of how we're supposed to function with those who are very different than us. And I find this these to be very, very
deep within their meaning. So we start with number 22. Inshallah, I'm gonna try to run as far as I can up to maybe 26 If we're lucky. Okay.
Hey, Nina che on your Raji.
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim.
Yummly Konami scholar What if
T were laughing
Ramallah Hoon, fee Hema Shirak.
Ramallah whom in whom milva he
because this is the end of the page, I'll explain it so that he can turn the page I'm gonna have to be going back and forth. But the actual, it would be better for us to continue the day after it for the full meaning. So see. And whenever you say it's one of the three things to either you're establishing a general attitude of how you're going to be public, what you're going to say publicly and act publicly, or it's gonna be a form of dialogue, right? Or it's going to be an attitude towards others. One of the things it depends on this sort of has a context to it doesn't have a context to it. There's another person, there's another side that is being established within the
story that you know, this is a sewer that's talking to people who are gonna feel clean or talking to those who are disbelievers, or talking to those who are in active war or talking to those who are like you, you will know that if you understand the soil and understand the context of it here it is talking about society. So this is this is going to be with those who are different. Those are from different backgrounds. We already we've already given the two examples already given that wouldn't say man, civilization and server so we already know that there's two players in this there's two different than two different types of societies that will function. So say in your Levinas abdomen
do Nila orderliness and two men do Neela call upon those whom you have claimed are equal or are associates with, with Allah subhanaw taala or besides Allah subhana wa Tada.
So here's the at the beginning of it is ideological dialogue that we have.
The way that we look at it is that if you can prove to us if you can prove to us that there is someone on the other side, someone besides Allah subhanaw taala, who you can speak to who has ownership on this universe who can answer your DUA then go ahead and call them or do Latinas. I'm talking dualism to me if you claim you claim what you can claim them to be associates are to be equal, besides Allah subhanaw taala. And of course, they will not do that, and they will have no one to speak to. So the ayah continuation Larium Licona mascara, they are words. In other words, you will have love the ones whom you call upon the ones who you think have some control within this
universe, or that you claim to be associated with Allah subhanaw taala, they do not own the amount of an atom, now they'll write in Arabic is the smallest thing that you can think of. So it's just a word that is used for the smallest thing that you could see. So long time ago, they used to use it for the eggs of ants. So the end egg was called a Dhanraj. Why? Because Arabs didn't know anything smaller than Hantek. They couldn't see anything smaller that does the smallest thing. So as the as we became more capable of seeing smaller things, every time we found something smaller, it became the Dharma. So if you go through the books have failed. For the last 1400 years, the word thorough
is used differently. Because it depends on what's the smallest thing at this point. So now, the smallest thing is probably I don't know what it is anymore. To be honest, I have no idea what it is either. Maybe the smaller things in the item, the neutrons and protons and the electrons. I mean, there's stuff even inside it in the cork world. I don't know, guys, I don't know, the smaller we go into smaller stuff to actually see, I don't know, but I thought I thought about the smallest thing they don't own. They don't own the amount or the weight of the smallest thing that exists within the heavens or within the skies in the cosmos. Or in the earth. When I got home fi meme and schicken the
people or those idols or whoever you claim to be associated with Allah subhanaw taala they don't have should what does it mean? Should it means partnership should actually shall aka is partnership. So should it means partnership mean? They don't. The people that you call upon without Allah, they don't own anything. So they don't actually have ownership over anything. And they don't have partnership in anything either. I'm at home fee Hema they don't have within the Cosmo than the Earth, any partnership so they don't close to 5050 We're a board you know, the universe is not owned by a board or committee. You know, it's Allah subhanaw taala no one has partnership women who mean
home member in a loss of power that does not have amongst them or from them, not you does not use any of the people or any of the individuals or any of the idols that you claim to be God's doesn't use any of them for his personal protection or for personal help. He doesn't need any of them for anything. He does not ask all I have a committee I need someone to take no it doesn't need them for anything. So there's three things you don't own anything. You have no partnership and anything and lots of power data has never you will hear the word but it is your back. Well here's someone
Got Your Back, someone who's protecting your back. So a man or woman who a member here, he does not need or use any of these people or any of these individuals or these idols for his personal protection or for his help, or to allow him to better run this universe. So three things, no ownership, the partnership, and they're not involved in any way of running anything. Allah subhanaw taala, those three things takes care of fully. So why is this here?
Understanding these things ideologically has the benefit or has the effect on how societies function in terms of usage of resources.
When you know that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who runs everything alone. No one else does, nothing else does, nothing else is involved, nothing else has ownership, nothing else has partnership. Nothing else has claim over anything at all, then the only one that you can possibly submit to the only one that can possibly care about his opinion, is Allah subhanaw taala. And that's an important distinction when we look at societies. When we speak about the world, as communities as civilizations we use, we often use words that are misleading, and are only figurative, this is this is our land, these are our resources. And this is where our borders exist. And this is where we
Yeah, figuratively, this is your is actually it is not actually it's owned by Allah subhanaw taala no one, not your government, not your any your gods that you believe in, or any, or any individual, any party or any
body that you deem to be superior has any ownership partnership or is involved in any way, in these things at all. It's all owned by Allah subhanaw taala alone. And that's an important part of us of being Muslims. Because it's very easy for small groups of people who live in small parts of the world, who have a lot of resources to claim this is theirs.
Yes, you're in but figuratively, right? Like you understand this figure of speech that you don't really own anything that Allah subhanaw taala owns at all, and that it's all his and nothing, not, not the political borders that you've drawn, not the hypothetical ethnic backgrounds that you claim exist on this piece of land, will have any has more claim to it, what's under it than any other group around the globe, because it's all owned by Allah subhanaw taala to begin, that's why we're grateful. That's why as Muslims are supposed to be grateful, you're offered something more than everyone else. So you use it for the betterment of everyone else, because you don't really own it's
not really yours. It's just what Allah subhanaw taala happened out of his own grace to offer you here is something extra for you enjoy and use for sugar and use Emmylou Ida with a chakra right here, I'm gonna do
I'm sorry, I use it for the betterment of everyone or it will be taken away or the buttock will be taken away of it, that you have all of it's not really going anywhere, as a political lesbianism to go ahead call upon those who have more ownership on this or have equal ownership or have some form of partnership or some way involved in running it. Besides Allah subhanaw taala let them answer you. And if you can't, well, then maybe you should take a look at this again. So that's the deal.
This ideological dialogue that we have with those who don't believe in Allah subhanaw taala in explaining how we function as societies, this is understand this is how we speak to societies that don't Muslim. But of course, we're doing what we have to do during the time and we are showing Shoko in every way possible. And our dialogue with them is trying to question why they're not. So if we're not showing shellcode, we should shut up until we do, we shouldn't have the dialogues because if they're doing more sugar than we are, if they are being more philanthropies more philanthropist than we are, if they're offering those who are in need more than we are, then maybe we should be quiet
until we do. We do our due diligence until we actually show sugar properly. But the whole point of these ayat is that once you function like dude is today man civilization did and you are showing sugar. And this is the dialogue you have with the people who are similar to somebody, because we could tell them what to remind them of why it is you have digital sugar, because no one owns anything but Allah subhanaw taala call upon those who own anything, no one owns anything. So what you have is not really yours. It's his I know that to begin with, you'll see that and the idea to come. So the continuation of this idea if this point hasn't been made clear yet what I've said when
we make clear after sorry day after it and went after it as well is go ahead just like you said, Nobody owns this, let's see,
leave on that resource
and belongs to a lot not to them, but these people are sitting there or the
other is called them outsiders or whatever. Come take the resource over let's take this land, like we're making towards living
less not control only less access to the resource than the adult
to outsiders or to newcomers or whatever.
Not only here, all around the world, you can take me for example. So those people who are, fortunately or previously,
somehow have to do something to get more access for right? Resource, would that be? No, that's fine. So Sugar, Sugar means sugar doesn't mean, I'm given this bottle of water. And I'm thirsty, and I need it to drink. But I think I throw it over to everyone else to drink it, I don't know, the sugar is for me to take my what I need from it. And then what I don't need. And when I can spare when I'm capable of helping I help others I don't hold on, don't hold on to it, and watch you die from from thirst or charge you in order for me to make it even more. So I can run a monopoly on things, this is what I was talking about. But if you are being removed from DeLanda, you lived in, you're being
oppressed or trying transgressed against or being persecuted, then in that case, of course, that's not what I'm talking about. You go back and fight for what is yours, you fight for what for your rights. But when you have it, you're reminded that is figuratively yours, it's not really yours. That's what I'm trying to say, is figuratively, it's actually owned by Allah subhanaw taala. That's what you do with it, what He commanded you to do with it, which is use your sugar within it. No one's telling you not to use what Allah Subhanallah gave you. It's yours. He gave it to you, you. This is where you live, and he put it under you. So it's a part but it's still owned by him, no one
else has ownership on it. So if he asks you, and He commands you to give shellcode meaning you have to you have to be grateful you have to give others you have to make sure that others who are in need of it, get access to it beyond your own ability on your own in need of it. And that's what you need to do. And you don't use it for harm as well. I don't know if that covered your question. Yeah. So this case is similar, like we are told, give from what I give you.
Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. You're told that luggage you give it back to exactly where it's gonna go. Yeah, waste. I don't wanna come out on your own. They ask you, what should we what should we? How much sadaqa? Should we give? So as the answer call, put LIFO LIFO is what you don't need. Everything that is extra from your, your basic needs you you've covered your needs, you've covered what you need, what you and your family need, do you have extra Yes. And that's what you give sadaqa from you don't get from the essentials. You don't give sadaqa from your essentials, you're not required to do that, unless you've either never asked you to give them if you do just like Allah. But yeah, and even in
some, in some instances, the prophets like Selim taught us that you could be held accountable for that. When Yeah, and if for example,
sad, cos wanted to give he said you know what, I want to give all my money away, no, leave leave forgot what to leave leave for those who will inherit from you last year like an invite Vatika Hyrule method that took him out, I think it's the California nurse for you to to leave those who inherit you with money so that they can take their their self sustaining, they take care of themselves, that they don't need others, it's better than leaving them
begging and asking for money from the society around them. Because you're you want to be extra generous. And that's why in Islam, if you'd before someone dies, decides that he wants to donate all his money, it's blocked. Yanni, if someone's terminally ill, on his deathbed, and he has a lot of money, he's like, I want to give it all away. For charity. It's like Islamically judicially it's blocked you that's not okay. Because now you're just ripping off your those who can inherit you, you're ripping off your kids, you could have done that, when you were when you had when you had when you still saw life ahead of you do that when you can see life ahead of you. Now when you know you're
when you're checking out and you can leave everyone behind you with nothing that's not fair. And whether you're leaving, and you're taking your money when you leave something for us to take care of ourselves. So if you want to be generous, go ahead and do it. When you have you still feel that you can only you still have a an assumption or an estimate that you will live longer, but when you know that it's over Islamically is blocked. So the concept is never that you give away to the point where you don't have no no, this is Allah subhanaw taala This is his gift to you use. This is the whole point of the surah these are the he gave you all this stuff, just make sure that you use it for
failure, and that you're not forgetting those who are in need of it in from a social perspective, that's hard, because society is always wanting to thrive. So they want to use their resources to build more and more wealth. Well, not all resources are going to be used just for that there has to be an amount of those resources that are left or they're given to those who are aren't in need of it. With no price tag on that at all. Just because it'd be quiet because Allah subhanaw has said so because it's sugar because that's how we show great great gratitude, or else you'll take the baraka away. It's really easy, isn't it? What didn't you establish that into us about how easy it is? Very
easy. You'll have orchards of trees that give you fruit and then you'll just wipe out those trees and put trees that don't give through they don't know what fruit it's still trees you still have the land just no fruit anymore. Now how are you gonna eat you can't do the Barack has gone you didn't take away the land didn't throw you know you still had the land you could have the water just no more fruit, just trees that are completely useless. They don't bring anything that is edible and that is what Barack has taken away okay. So to say that I after this
will fall and then you can see the meaning that
has continued and clarified in a bit more detail while Adam Schiff
who elected him and as in Ella
either fuzzy or

power who are likely you will cabbie
I always make a mistake in the concept with the word of Chef ah what is the word you find English it's not an intravenous into intercede, intercede decision yet always always put them to always confused them while attend thorough shafa to end in early May. Allah interceding is of no value at all. It does not benefit at all that in fact, there's no benefit from interceding
within the realm of Allah subhanaw taala in His kingdom on the Day of Judgment when he is judging people around him and as in Allah except for those who He gives permission to intercede is a very important point. Allah subhanaw taala will allow people to intercede for others on your mithya it's not against his will, is not against his wishes. Me even those who want to seed your milk, but will only intercede when Allah says okay, you intercede for them. So it's at the end of the day, nothing's really changing is still fully his choice of panels out it's still fully His mercy that's being distributed. He just allows some people to have an upper hand over other people so that we
know who has hobbled for the car. So we know who the people who are worthy of us showing gratitude for and knowing that they have higher ranking than ourselves are within our society. That's it, meaning no one can come up, no matter how highly ranked they are. Say, Rob, I want this loser person who never ever prayed to go to Jana with me. And Allah subhanaw taala is like well, I didn't want him to go but your luck since you said no, that's how it's gonna work out. You will only holy intercede for this person. If Allah subhanaw taala says okay, intercede for him. And then you will come in and you will intercede for him if you want to. If that's something and the Prophet
sallallahu Sallam is one of the people who will after he opens the gates of Jannah and enters verse one will be standing interceding for as many people as you can, until until there is no hope at all until Allah subhana closes both gates and no one's no one's moving anymore. You also have Allah going so he goes in, he will continue to intercede somebody celebrates not against Allah's will. He died interceding for someone who Allah Subhan said, I am not happy with that person. I never will be the Prophet. It's like someone can intercede somehow and make no it's not always gonna work out. Make that make me that'd be very clear to everyone here. We were raised very differently, by the
way. And many, many, many of us were. Yeah, it's fine. Do whatever you need to do. The Prophet SAW. I said I want to see it for you.
Okay, you want to try that out? Do you want to play you put your money on that and try I don't know. I'm gonna gamble it it's a roulette dude. What are you doing? You have no evidence of that. The Quran says the opposite. Welcome American Mr. Nava Tila to Bucha.
Then Allah Halima Yasha. There are many angels in the sky in the earth
sorry within the cosmos will want to intercede but they're interested in proceeding is completely useless until Allah subhanaw taala gives them the permission and he is happy well done. He is satisfied with them. You have to be satisfied with the person in order for it to work. The intercede the intercede for the noob for certain sins that this person didn't leave, or mistakes that they made that they never performed proper Toba from, but they can intercede on issues that that have helped Gundam mean, meaning if you've you've harmed others, no one can intercede for the rights of those people to go away.
Nothing Nothing will fix that you have to you have to pay pay your dues, you have to take care of whether you harmed someone no you have to you have to dig it out with them. The profits I think it's all nice anyway, so it's I can come into seed for you after you harm someone else. That's not fair. Yeah, that person is saying there was what happened. So I know I so he took it away. And now he's agenda and it's over because well that how does that work? How is that even? Where's justice? There's no justice in it. So when when interceding happens human piano, it will be with the permission and satisfaction of Allah subhanaw taala. So you can see how I have moved one step
further. No one owns anything known as partnership and anything. He doesn't need anyone for anything. Even interceding your milky mo will only happen if he wants it to. If he allows it to if he says okay, you're going to see that you can do even interceding even come and say you're up. Please forgive this person. You know, I've done well you're happy with me forgive this person. Not until I say it's okay. And I'll say all those prophets require your milk. Yeah. And the prophets that Allah Azza wa sallam himself will be quite young. And we have until he has given the permission to do to say otherwise. And we have evidence of him being I'm saying your job as hobby as hobby. Or
also have you also have you
people who stood by me, people who might know you then go to agenda and he will say you don't know what they did after you did email about it, you don't know how they changed everything, or they went to the opposite direction. And the prophets I said, I will say so. Then good rhythms may they go in the other direction, because the prophets are nice and then will not intercede for someone that Allah suppose aren't happy with, he will go against the will of Allah, he is also lots of lesser than you only go with the will of Allah. So it's important point that we should all kind of remember we hope inshallah to be granted the interceding of the prophets of Lysander Sharla, we all are
granted that don't fool yourself. Don't fool yourself that it's gonna happen against the double subpoena. Without lawyers, it's a free ticket, for you to live however you want to live in, then you're going to be saved. That's not how things work. How, that's how things work, you know, then you will see the Sahaba functioning very differently. Is it true that
So there's a hadith, or maybe two, they like authenticity of it, but they have that in them.
Talk about them. What's more, what's more solid is that the Saudi Hain of families want to see for those who are less solid hanging egg they those who are pious in a family will intercede on behalf of those who are less pious in the family so that everyone would be in the same place. So we assume those who memorize the Quran and learn the Quran will be fine.
They could be something else as well, but they could be most likely shall not be Saudi Arabia and the Quran in their hearts, they will use it for hire, and they'll intercede on the day of judgment for their family, like everyone into gender leave their parents outside. If they're truly know the Quran, they're gonna wait for their parents and for their family members are not going to be selfish about it. So in that sense, it is it has the authenticity but the actual Hadith themselves, me like a bit in terms of authenticity, but most like most scholars are happy with them and use them quite frequently. And I don't see any any problem with it at all. It's uplifting and motivating to try and
memorize and learn the Quran. So hotter either fouzia Uncle will be him Callooh murder cholera Bukom. So the inter cedars on the day of judgment are in a state and in a state of fear and of fuzzy fuzzy is when you are are so scared and so preoccupied with something that you're not capable of thinking of anything else. So fuzzy uncle will be him at the moment when finally the fear is lifted to the point where they can think straight again, where they can start thinking about other things meaning other things besides themselves your milk gamma, you are
very selfish. All you care about is your is your own well being will you make it to Jana, you're thinking about what you should do and what you shouldn't what you what you you can do and what you should have done and what you shouldn't have done. And all your focus is on your life story and where you are right now. And so that's what you're preoccupied with. But at the moment you're gonna pay the filing fee and the people who who can intercede the high ranks people who are pious and good, they will they will have a moment of really fuzzy uncle who will be him meaning the the fear and selfishness will be lifted off from their hearts. So they'll say Fahd who is what they'll say
merveille color of Bukom What has your Lord said and they're talking to them at the ICA meeting? Has he has he allowed us to intercede? Can we can I speak on behalf of my son or my father or my cousin in accounting speaking may maybe try and get them in? I think you're a decent right? You prayed right? You didn't know Not at all.
Like why not? How am I gonna help you? But what did you do? Did you know that even though you did nothing? What do you want from me? I go away. I don't want to be around you. Like you'll hear me they'll be the opposite feeling. You'll see someone who is so far away like I don't I'm not related to him at all. I know I don't know who this person is. You'll actually want to get away from them. You actually want to get away from those who are related to you who will make you look bad
because but someone who maybe was doing 40 50% And you feel they can maybe give a bit of a push and get them in then you'll stand in Yeah, and you'll be waiting but you'll be so scared for yourself at the beginning that you're not ready until the moment comes where that really where that is lifted and you're you find some relief. Why because you probably found out that you're going in the right direction inshallah that's what I was trying to say. I'd say that fouzia Uncle Dubey mean the relief you they were offered relief and and the fears lifted from their hearts and they know they're going to agenda they will say to them and agar one of your Lord said Mother, can we start calling me and
he said he called us two meanings. One is that they say he said the truth.
I mean, he said and the truth being that you can only intercede for those who he would let you to intercede. That's why I allow you to intercede for and by helping me and they will they will they will say the truth. Me they will tell these people the truth of the matter mean who they can intercede for and who they cannot intercede for well who will ally you will be on here subhanaw taala Allah Allah you will be here. These two names, by the way are very,
pretty rare in the Quran. Right? It's more like an alley and it's mobile Kabira and we're gonna find another name that is not rare. You will find it only in sort of sub menus, not
repeated anywhere else in the Homosassa just coming up and say 26. But lately, you'll carry your two names that are not used very often in the Quran there, there are amongst the names that are kind of rarely used. Ali is the highest of the high
or he is the highest. And Allah is one step higher. So you have
Lolly, and then you have Allah, those two names are kind of similar to one another, and I only use the high is the high ranked is the one who oversees everyone, meaning no one is at the same level. Since we're talking about levels this is gonna be interceding involved in receiving means that someone's higher, who's going to intercede for someone who is lower. So there's there's some ranking that is being discussed. And yet, Allah subhanaw taala use the name, that Rondon ranking allele is the highest rank because there's no rank that is similar to him higher than him or even close to him. And that's why no one who was lower can overrule his his ruling. So you're interceding for
someone is like a lucky and shining a little camera you intercede for your family members and show like take that agenda but you're not you can overrule the IT subhanaw taala you can overrule the high one jeweler jeweler is still under his under his ruling and under his permission subhanaw taala I'll carry the great
and that's that's the name of the Quran. That means the great, you'll find other names of the Quran that sometimes the same word is used for like an Alim and sometimes it is easy, but that's not very accurate. The name that is most accurate translation the great is is Mullah him cumbia.
Why? I'll tell you.
So, if someone is arrogant, what is the word that we use for it in Arabic,
the Kabbalah cover the same route. So arrogance
is from Kibera. Now Allah subhanaw taala one of His Names is Alma Mater, Kibera, one of His Names. So to put like two names that are similar together, it can be your unlimited number. So when we're together means the one who sees himself to be better than everyone and higher than everyone. And that name only applies to Allah subhanaw taala. You cannot have an LLC from that name. And there's nothing in that name for you. In his name of Rahim, the Most Merciful Subhanallah you there's something in it for you, you can be merciful as well. And carry, the unique you can do or the generous, even how you can take out part of that for yourself as well. But in what I can bear,
there's nothing in it for you. There's nothing in it for you, because that's him. That is if you try and do that you're going against your nature. Your nature is that your simple nature of myself is that I'm a slave, I was created a servant, I come from the salt of the earth, very simple. I don't control most of the functionings of my own body and mind. So I'm very I'm not very I'm not great in any way. I should not see myself to be better than anything at all since I don't control any part of who I am to begin with. So I should be very, very humble and simple. However Allah subhanaw taala is essential to you like that is the opposite of that. That's what he's done with the cutter and
there's nothing negative about him being in with a compass of Pinilla Todd, does everything negative about you being with the Cabal, because that's the opposite of your of your nature, you're doing the opposite, you have no right to do. So. If Allah subhanaw taala, one of His Names was Enomoto, Allah the humble, that would be a Malika, because that's the opposite of his nature. subhanho wa taala, how would He humbled Himself and He is the greatest, and He is the great, He is the great, and he is the one who should see himself better than everyone because that's his nature. However, he can be merciful, and He can be patient, and he came to love you loving. But Humble is a different thing.
Humble is a different concept. And you're sending the idea here, you think about it for a while, it'll make sense. And it's actually it's actually a very key point to understanding us, ourselves. And Allah subhanaw taala. And these this is these are one of the things where we don't draw parallels, you draw parallels of mercy, and of love, and of generosity, and patience, and of care of others. You draw parallels and elegance, His names, you try to be like it. And then there's a couple of names where you do not draw parallels. Like he's a co Ed subhanaw taala for example, maybe you could take something from that. Yeah, maybe that's not the real head. Can you take something like
that from it? No, that's that's fully him only and there's nothing to draw there.
It can be run with a cobra is another example. Those are names. There's nothing in it for you really. Besides knowing that that's who he is a Cebu. Could do Subhana wa Tada another example of names where there's nothing in it for you. Besides knowing your Lord, just for you to know him. You have to know him like that is who he is. He's il COVID. He is the great soprano Tada in contrast to me, which I am not, I'm not great, unless he deems me one day to be of some level of greatness. Unless he and I should not be looking forward to that. I shouldn't be trying to get him to do that. But I should be trying to be do is get the satisfaction of the great himself subhanaw taala make
sure the greatest happy with you, what He deems you to be something you should be very into
just hidden. Actually, if you understand who you are, then you'll never be interested in him deeming you anything besides who you are and what you are, which is just a servant.
Z, you don't like listening to that the neffs inside right now is hearing this from me is not happy. And if you feel like something in your inside of you is kind of shying away from the way I'm talking about it, then understand that your next is like I want to go this is this is, this is BS, I don't listen to this, because I am not. No, it is the fact though, is the fact that we all have to come to terms as a Muslim, you have to understand that we are servants, you are ABD, I am ABD, you'll never be anything more than that. But if you submit to Allah subhanaw taala, as a servant, as a servant, that you've submitted to the great, supply that with Allah, and then he will grant you from his
greatness, whatever he wants, and then you can enjoy some of it, but not as a great one, as a servant.
Understood, it's a very, very important point to make. And the quicker you come to terms with this, the quicker you accept it and understand it, the happier you're going to be, and the better Muslim you're going to be. And the longer this takes, and the more shortcuts and the more loopholes and the more lies and deceptions you find, to make it seem something different, to convince yourself that maybe everyone else's, but if I'm different, I was made different. No, you're not, you're not, we're all the same. Inside and outside, we're all exactly the same. There's nothing better about anyone sitting here with someone else. unless Allah subhanaw taala told you, you were did he, if he did,
and by all means go see a psychiatrist and takes him it's ideal for him. But if you did, if he didn't, and he probably didn't, then accept the fact that we're all the same. We're all just slit servants of Allah subhanaw, the great himself, all servants of the great himself of the highest one that I lead himself, may there be something that gives you happiness, May that grant you calmness and serenity and tranquility, just knowing that you're a servant of his subhanaw taala that should offer it to you. And that he and that if he will, if you please Him, He will grant you all, all things that will make you happy, being greater than everyone else shouldn't be one of the things
that make you happy. That's something you have to fix. That's something you have to take time to fix yourself. Some people say I had this conversation when once a person told me a good agenda, get everything right, we want right and again, so I want to go to Jana, I want to be better than everyone. I want to be the person that will see you're not going to go to gender unless that idea is yanked out of your mind. You're not going to agenda with that in, you're actually not gonna go agenda with that idea. And isn't that exactly what he said? So how will you find any when you when you study more your local agenda and kind of you're collaborating with colleagues or roaming cube or
if you have an atom of arrogance, and you're not going to join? Because that means because it's not it just doesn't work? You are against your own nature, you can't have something in you that is against your nature that intergender No, no, all that has to be taken out, you have to understand that you're just a servant.
You have to understand that all this is not about you.
It's not about me, we're not the center of the story. We're not the main characters, the story was never about us. It's Allah subhanaw taala story, he is the center of all this, he is the center of this story, not mine. We we always think that you know, I'm the center of my universe.
All right, run with that for a while, let's see how it works for you.
If you're a bit more arrogant, you think you're the center of other people's stories as well. Because that's delusional. That's just a newly if you think are the center of the story of anyone else, that's and we'll see. But you're not even the center of the universe of your of your wife, by the way he does. She has her own thing going, you think you're the guy, you're not the center, and then neither are you for her neither. We're not the center of anyone else's life. You're not even the center of your own. It's Allah Subhanallah story. So do your play your role and his stories of high notes the way he wants, and stop trying to make this about you. And we have to stop trying to
make this about us. It's not about us, it's not about me or you. It's not about me, it's not about what we think or feel. It's about him subhanaw taala he created he put forward gave you an opportunity gave you an opportunity that is amazing in what you could possibly get out of it. So if you end up wasting this opportunity, you have no one to blame but yourself. And the reason that you wasted is because you just didn't understand what the story was about to begin with, was understood. No one owns anything. Now that makes sense. No one owns anything. No one has partnership, anything, he never needed anyone. And you don't even have to see it unless he allows you to Subhan Allah Tala
and he is the highest and he is the greatest spider with data. And those two, socially have a lot of meaning. Because socially, we have that that humbleness and that humility has to be a part of who we are understanding that and that's what we argue ideologically. Don't be arrogant about what you have as a psychic disease. And I'm very, very good. Very good. What happens when societies become arrogant?
Now go back in history and study the last maybe 400 years if you'd like. And you'll find out what happens when societies become arrogant, and the blood loss and the Bloodstone the destruction and the the oppression and transgression the persecution and the loss of land and the loss of resources in the company.
Eat neglect of groups of people in the millions, they're suffering their lives, their futures are nothing because another group of people feel that they're better than them. And may this be a part that changes the way we think regarding that going?
The better to have this is is a great thing to have, you should be competitive, and you should try and achieve. But let's say you compete with me on getting somewhere, and you beat me to get there. Does that make you better than me?
In the larger scheme of things that make you better. That's the point you need to continue to stick with. So I ran run. I don't I run faster than you. Right. I can play better than you. I got into a better university than you I had more kids than you my wife is looks better than your wife. I have a bigger house with men men compared stuff. I have a better car a bigger car I have. But does that make me better than you?
I have more things I have. Am I better? No. That's the point that has to be established in the heart. Am I better? Am I not? If I'm comparing because I think that these things make me better than you. Meaning in the in the full outcome, right? The outcome of things. I haven't rank higher than you're in problem. Because you're trying to be could be trying to be great. You're not supposed to be. There's only one character that makes somebody better. Yep. And is that the only thing that no one can see? I think it's
the only thing that no one can see. I can't see I have no idea how much decoy you have inside him. There's no blood
measurement that will give me as it there's nothing I Taqwa 6.5 and Dakhla for us at night, I have no idea. There's no way for me to figure how much decoy you have inside of you. There's no way for you to how much stuff was inside of me. So that is left fully with Allah subhanho wa Taala he will not give that information until your milk to them and then your milk you know if he gives you the enjoy, which tells you a better you're fine, but he will not tell you you're better until you don't care anymore. So here's the point you will only be given this information when you've come to the point where it doesn't matter to you you've already got rid of the need of knowing I don't care I
don't care who I'm better than All I care is that I am the best I can be in serving you your job
and then you'll be told that you're better you always get the thing when you don't want you always give him something we know because not you're supposed to want it to begin with wanting it means that you're thinking that direction but you're supposed to be competitive. What are you supposed to be competitive? You're trying to please him more subpoena with data. You and I competing with trying to please Allah subhanaw taala more I'll compete with you I'll try to I'll try to presume there but if I do if I end up getting farther than you I still don't know if I'm better than or not and I shouldn't be preoccupied and I shouldn't care whether that is a factor or not. And I shouldn't care
about his that did I please him well enough or not? There's an endless conversation there's a lot into it. What's important is just kind of understanding the basics of these toys are very powerful. They come within the sutra that talks about how society is supposed to function because societies need humility the moment societies don't have that anymore the moment society thinks that they are early in career that's when things come falling down okay recite after it there's two more or three halftime Charla but we don't write what it means
we're in a year
Lala houden will see law learning baby
so that's the first one was ideological. The second one is a bit more practical but in many years Zuko communism Allah, this is a bit more practical, who is the one who grants you provision coming talking about resources talking about money but possessions and talking about wealth? Who is the one who grants you provision who is the one who gives you and grants you wealth from the cosmos and from the earth from the sky and the earth meaning everything that is surrounding you, who is the one who is giving you the wealth that you have in the provision that you have? Allah it is Allah subhanaw taala who does this and then Anya the end of this I am what are the most interesting parts of the
Quran? We're in
a we are gone and it's either us or you are you oh en la isla who then who are fully guided or walking on a pathway of guidance, I will feel Balerion movie or in very clear misguide or in a state of clear Miss guidance. So then we've been clear ms guidance. Let me repeat what I said. When we come in, it's either us or you who is on a straight path of guidance, or is unclear misguidance.
See, when you understand that it's within the theme of the Sunnah, understand how we're supposed to be dealing with it.
with those who are different than us, the way we deal with those who are different with us than us is very simple. It's based on evidence. It's based on outcomes.
There's what we believe we believe that Allah subhanaw taala is the one who owns everything. And then no one who has ownership partnership is involved in any way or can even intercede besides him support I use the great and he is the is the highest one. And no one else grants provision besides him subhanaw taala. So it's owned by him the provision that you have specifically is his. And that's the fact that we believe it's either us or you who's right or wrong. Like was not. Now we can be us that could be you could be right, you could be wrong, it could be the opposite me time, prove who was going to be right, it was going to be wrong. I understand the idea here. We are not, we are
never most obviously been. The word also means being a bigot.
Word hard headed sometimes can substitute the meaning, but being a big being someone who is not open in any way to change their mind about anything. Right. And that is never how a Muslim functions as a Muslim, this is what we say when we come now Allah who then often there also you who is guided, or is in a state of clear misguidance it is evidence, it is a logic, it is rationale and is outcomes of behavior that will judge who is guided and who was in the state of clear misguidance it is not just because I said it, and or because you said something different. It's not it's not how it's going to be established. It's not just opinion, digest, in my opinion, and because it's my opinion than his
right. Why? Because my opinion, that's why because most rice right now, that's not how it works. There's what the Quran says. And that's why it's right. No, there should be one more step that we use, from a social perspective, on a personal perspective is enough. He said to do us a PIO, tada. So we're good. But on a societal perspective, or societal levels and levels of communities and populations, there has to be a way to judge whether these behaviors are right or wrong. And it will always be based on outcomes on behaviors, and then how those behaviors what those behaviors results into whether this behavior helped or didn't help. That's why we're in now Oh, er, I didn't I didn't
insert this here. This is what this is saying we're in now we are committed is me or it is you who was who was correct. Or in full mistake. Why would the ISA this fall because this is the this is the attitude in dialogue that you're supposed to have with the opposite parties that you're talking to, you establish your your points clearly, of who Allah subhanaw taala is in what he owns, and where provision comes from, and who's the one who's involved in all of it. And you say, well, and this is something that is subject to we can talk it's either you or us you say the opposite, we say this, one of us is wrong. One of us is wrong, obviously, because we have opposite views on this
completely. So one of us is wrong, you could be the one who was guided and I'm the one misguided or the opposite. May our behaviors may the way that we function prove that may the outcome of our behaviors prove it. It's a very, very important point here, when you want something a bit more
at the end of sort of dissolve which is also a surah
that has a lot of dialogue with with capitalist say the least incalculable Hemani Wellard
see if you can prove to me that a man has a as a child then I'll be the first one to worship the child. If you can prove to me that the day a team within within a philosophical understanding of what a supreme being is, can have a child a flesh and blood a child that is born by
relations between two deities and that I will be the first one to worship if you can't prove that to me then let's stick to the stick to the basics of how this is understood. Let's stick to how we view deities to begin with and supreme beings instead of coming up with something that makes no sense
and convinced you with my point so I will allow the two following is to do that for me and fellows tomorrow and then we'll finish what to
will be in Buena
Vista who've been a little help
we're who will who Lolly
say lattice Aluna. Jelena Well, Tom Malone, you will not be questioned for the mistakes that we make wellness Ranma Tamela whatever you will not be questioned about what you do. And when you look at the way that is raising it. It is giving the doubt or just giving the premise that we are we are caught
causing chaos, as you all know, we are we are criminals and we are causing all these mistakes. Well, you know, if that's what you think we're doing, well, you're not going to be questioned about the crimes that we have, we're committing what, we're not going to be asked about what you do. And it doesn't say, with the crimes that you commit. So the perspective, the attitude of our dialog is that look, this is what we believe in, we believe that he owns it all subhanaw taala evidence comes from Him. And that way, we have to be very, very, very shocking, very, very grateful. Now, we could be right, you could be wrong, it could be the opposite. You're not going to be asked about the crimes
we commit, if that's what you think. And we're not gonna be asked about what you do. So you function the way that you want to function. And we're going to do the things that the way the way Allah subhanaw taala said, do our thing. And you can see, you can see that the attitude here is of tolerance is of acceptance is a agreeing that we will disagree is the clarity that we don't think the same way.
