Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa Salam o, Allah says, you know, have you been a Muhammad Ali he was so happy
so recited up to a number 59 From today, which are from my number 60. This is the end of the surah. This is the finale or the summary, the last number of last page and a half. Today, there's still maybe some continuation of the of the topics. But definitely next time, if not, today, we will recite the final ayat of surah. Extremely important and if you
I would advise you reading them before you come just because because you'll recognize, oh, I've heard these many times before, and I probably memorize them at some point.
But I guarantee you that your understanding of it will be much different. Once Once I explained to you within the theme of the SUTA that I've been talking about meaning you listening to Stuart Eliza and the topics that he talks about. And the theme that brings the actual is will make much more sense to you. And you understand why this idea exists in the sutra. And I find that to be the most intriguing and beautiful part of doing Tafseer of the Quran as you finally start understanding why this is here. Why out of all this sort of the Quran, it existed here and what services what point it serves. And
when you really think about it, that's how we're supposed to understand the Quran. There has to be context, as soon as you have to understand what the sutra is talking about what it's trying to trying to offer was trying to add to for us and Howard was a benefit from this surah. And when we do we understand them as so because when you when you use an IRA as evidence for something, and you rip it out of the context of the suit of that in, or the cluster of stood that existed within you kind of not doing it justice, so you're not. And
most of the time, it's an improper use of an idea, because the person who's using it is actually looking at this and completely disconnected from from the suitor, that it isn't, and that's what I think it's important for us understand it, go through schools and fall and talk about themes. Now, we'd like to start at the beginning of a cluster of students that talk about the concept of obedience through our system submission, which are the two, which is the bread and butter of being a Muslim is what Allah subhanaw taala asks of us, asks us to obey Him to submit to His will and to follow his commands. Now this class will look at that from a number of different angles and sort of
the cluster of students as you look at it from a number of different angles, it's specifically is the first one of the longest and probably the most important angle of all, it talks about submitting to Allah subhanaw taala as well following his command, or being him when it is specifically and especially difficult to do so. Or it's awkward or uncomfortable, and it causes you a lot of distress to do it. Or maybe you don't understand fully or it's just physically or financially or socially distressed or stressful for you to follow Allah subhanaw taala is command and that's what teaches us in the central idea, the pseudo and that kind of meaning one minute in either called Allahu wa
rasuluh Imran Kula whom will hear me him that for a believer, man or woman, there has never been an option for them. Once Allah subhanaw taala gives a command or decrees a Will they believe there's no option Did they follow what he says Subhana wa Tada. And I think that's something that we miss sometimes in the in the way that we view our own faith that yeah, maybe you don't you don't have to like it. You don't have to like it doesn't have to be easy. It doesn't have to be something that you're comfortable with. All right. So and we talked about all the different 90
stories that are brought forward, but a lot of personal stuff, a lot of awkward topics, all the things that we listen to and we discussed and everyone kind of found it.
uncomfortable and people were cringing, as I went through certain issues, I could see the faces. Not Yeah, you're finding it very enjoyable. But it's important information. It's important that we understand that this is this is a part of being a Muslim as well. And we we entered the house of the prophets of Allah and then we talked about personal issues, things that he said himself, not necessarily wanted everyone to hear about or to know about. Allah Subhan has shared with us moments of where he used to have like Selim was was struggling with a commando struggling with an order that he was given by Allah subhanaw taala options in obligations to the Sahaba issues that were happening
with his wife that he saw to us and these are very difficult things to talk about. And reminds us of the humanity of everyone involved in these stories and it's sometimes a human being and so were the his wife and son were the Sahaba and that's again, that's not fun to talk about. You would rather me tell you that they were all I need angels in the forms of human beings it's easier that way. The Sahaba were perfect walking around like the prophets I said I'm making no mistake is much easier that way. This fun are the stories you know, I need to have a better I need beat to them. The rhythm is nicer but I tell you they're human and they would go through human emotions and human feelings
and they would make humanly mistakes. We
He struggled, but when you when you're finished struggling with that, your faith matures, your faith, it develops, it evolves, it becomes something different. There are many in the modern age and era, and I'm gonna give this introduction before we read, because I think it's important.
We still have a lot of people who are believing in Allah SubhanAllah. And believing in a standard, a very mystic form, everything, everything is warped and covered by mysticism and and if it's not, they don't know how to believe in it, they want all the commands all the teachings to be of that have such I mean, they want that, to believe that any difficulty will be followed by an ease. And if you make it hard enough, Allah subhanaw taala will bring something out, he said something from the sky and change everything for you. We like believing in that because it's just easier than facing the reality of the situation that we are in. We dug ourselves into a hole, right? We don't like the
hole. So give me give me some virtual reality but put some some glasses on my pain, some rainbows and give me glasses, I can see stuff. And we turned faith into something like that. We don't want to believe what actually is there. We don't want to accept that because because the reality is just too harmful. We do that a lot. By the way, if you if you
if you observe the Muslim communities around the world, you'll see a lot of that. How many of you have had a loved one or someone they need their family diagnosed with a terminally ill disease? Right? How many families will not tell the person that he's ill or she's ill? Have you ever tried that before I've done before? Where even you're like I know who they should know? Why shouldn't they know? It's their life? What could be more personal than your own life ending at some point? Tell me anything that'd be more personal than your whole life ending at a certain point, a diagnosis of a disease you have no one else does. And you're the only one who doesn't know about it. Why? Because
we'd rather not deal with reality. This is a trend amongst us as Muslims, something that we struggle with, we've always struggled with, it's gonna take time before we actually get over it. But it exists not just in our day to day lives, it's also part of our faith. And even the most realistic and practical parts of Islam, we choose to see with a mystic is just easier that way. It just eat a mix. It sounds better, right? Just sounds better. If I tell you if you believe the Quran arrived to us looking exactly like this, Allah said, I sent it down with angels hovering around it to make sure nothing was then that's what you choose to believe. Because it's mystic it's nicer that way, when
you know the the blood and sweat, and time and endless nights and effort of 1000s of Sahaba and Debbie ain, and who am I to make sure the client arrived here. And
maybe maybe it breaks the pumps that bubble? You know, like, Oh, I didn't know that there was 1000 ways to read the Quran 1000 different ways with the 1000s and 1000 different ways. I didn't know that it'll shake your faith. But then when you understand it, you're a fit, you're really your religion will mature, you develop you evolve, you have a better understanding of what Islam is. And you you're much more content with your own understanding of faith. And there's so many examples like that. Yeah, I don't know. I can go on forever, to be honest, giving you examples that will bother everyone. But I think that's one of its points. Even the faith here even believing in all of this is
extremely important. It pops the bubble at least so to sum Yes, at a certain point, revered people's opinions more than you revered Allah for a moment. It happened. You don't like hearing that some people like you shouldn't say that. Why shouldn't they say that? Allah said it last night. Why is your next major and I explained the I say just see what duction so Allah Heartland texture, I cannot explain this and I'll move on. That's what I'm supposed to do. Allah Subhan Allah taught us something. We're supposed to learn this. If you're gonna achieve that balance, achieve that balance of understanding his humanity, Islam, Allah Honeyville cinnamon, still respecting him beyond
everything, then then you become the ultimate Muslim, then you understood your faith. Can you achieve that balance? Can you can you see him as a human being with urges and fears and needs and, and pain and sorrow and mistakes as a human and still revere him, sublicense them to the highest point, then you've matured but that people can't do it. That he did believe that he's not really human to revere him high enough or that he really is and then they stopped why? Why do we have the same thing goes when you talk about issues? Like what could either you depend on Allah subhanaw You depend on your work? If I've done the job why do I have to have to I could I've done the job of
study the subject I know more than the professor to actually is useless at this point. I only use to occur when I have studied nothing. And then I go in why? Why can you study and have to work cool. Can you get that balance? Yes. Then you understood Islam and if you don't have that balance, you're always gonna suffer it. There's little things that we don't because we'd rather just believe the mystic stuff is funner. And every faith is like that. Just you know, you study study history. You have to
religions, they all do it. We all did it. And so our job today and yeah, I knew as Muslims to change that, to bring back the the pragmatic or the practical understanding of the Quran and understand that Allah subhanaw taala sent the prophets of Allah, Allah Islam with adding the Sahaba tried it. Now, we're not the only people, so I haven't tried it, at least so to sit and be walking, he looked at them doing something with, with palm trees, they were shaking a palm tree to get the pollen out to the other palm tree to so that they would have dates. And it's also not a farmer. McKinsey aren't farmers. He's never seen this before. He's like, What are you doing?
For fun? I don't think it works.
And because they've already some of that turns out Ustick understanding of who he was twice, and then they stopped doing it. And they had no, no days the next next year. But then also the lover alumna Carla, Carla who Carla says, I tell you this as well. And Allah says, When I tell you this is what Allah subhanaw taala says you immediately should follow but I didn't. And Mr. Oakley makura is sometimes I'll speak my opinion. I didn't think it was helpful. I wasn't telling you. It wasn't helpful. I didn't say God, Allah is not helpful. Why are you suddenly he's no longer humans unless and he can't have an opinion can be walking down the street and look at something and make a
To say he can't be looking at a person anymore. He has to be everything he says has to be, you know, that Auro? And then he speaks and everyone writes it down. And it turns into why? Why are we doing that? That's that's me saying he's not human. Some of it is. So what I'm saying here, I love him. Well, I respect him more than I wish I was Yanni the shoe he would wear I wish he wore me like a shoe Wallahi during his life, and I would have more shut off in doing that than living this life or any other life. But he's still human sometimes. And it's important. I can't relate to him it is so to see them if I don't see his humanity. How do I follow someone who who does not have the problems
and the urges and the needs and and the fears and Jani that that I have? It's impossible, I can't do it. Tell me someone doesn't have all these things. And I'll tell you, well, then I can do certain things. I'll just do whatever I want. Because he doesn't understand sunlight so that we didn't go through them. But then I tell you, though he did he understands it all. He went through them all.
And then I have no choice. He's a showerhead, right. And he's a witness. And he's an example is for us to follow. I think that's an important part of understanding too. So when you read it again, you go through all the topics I talked about, and you find Oh, this is hard. And that's that's, that's why so is there is there to just challenge you with topics that you're not comfortable with. So you understand it's a practice practicality here that needs to be addressed. Okay, we will start in sha Allah from a number 16.
Last time we talked about the final command. Yeah, you want to be fully as logical Benetti conocido meaning you Dineen Ali in Mineola, BBN for them to draw closer themselves, the jilbab which is the cover of the head that goes back down onto the back for them to draw this upon themselves and not to expose their, their physical appearances. And that was a final idea here. And this is, again, this is here. And so it's up. Why because the hard one, it's still hard today. It's one of the things we struggled with as a Muslim community, but our sisters find it difficult to make we don't blame them for it's a hard thing to do. But it is a command within the Quran. It is there and it's in the sort
of the talks about all the difficult ones. So it's like acknowledging well when you when you understand this idea here, so Allah says acknowledging this is hard. This is not easy, but it is what it is. It is a command. Now if you believe in Allah subhanaw taala it's not optimal for you, you will follow as he said it subhanaw taala and if done, it's a different story. And it's many many examples that exists within within this Okay, so we'll start from number 16 Shawn
page 420 26 If you have a must have Medallia and if not, then you have to find another way to do it.
He Nina shame on your body

for people who were put to a party
soon to law he lives in a Hollywood, Corbin
Wallen taggi Deli Sunette hinted at one
unless it's there's a warning this is an area that has a warning within it mean the the tone here is a warning. So NTP is for you to stop doing something
to withhold from from from performing or acting in a certain way. So let me unless unless they stop doing something So who are they? First of all, so here there are three, three groups that are pointed out. This takes us back to the beginning of the sutra. This takes us back to the first story we talked about the story of the of the Confederacy, the story that the sutra was called, based on the story of the Confederates, if you remember, when Allah subhanaw taala, in that, in those periods, was talking to us about how the movements of the people of Medina observed at a certain point, the Confederate Army making its way over. And then a number of groups, a different number of
groups emerged within Medina, you had the believers, and then you had them on your phone. Right? And then you had and while we couldn't, if you remember, all these are words that were used in that first story. So now except as the hypocrites the Olympian playing them in time would have your points are the hypocrites, when Levine if equilibrium model was also a group that emerged at that first, that first story, those who have diseased hearts will have diseases in their hearts. And this is not talking about any cardiovascular problems. This is talking about issues of the soul, meaning for you to have
deficits and your character that you know about, that you do not deal with. And then circumstances or situations will bring them forward will expose them. And we all have stuff like that, right now, because we're not being exposed to what exactly is going on inside is it's hard for you to figure out what my weaknesses and my mistakes and my diseases are. And it's hard, maybe even for you to find out on your own for your own self. But then life itself with the different with difficult circumstances will expose it all you'll find out if you're braver, if you're not, if you're selfless, or if you're not, yeah, if you're compassionate, empathetic, or if you're not, and life
will show that and we learn as we go along. Some people are smarter than others, some people will take a good long look deep inside and figure these things out and deal with them. And let them be aware of them and start working on changing them before life comes in exposes them. And others won't just wait until life guy throws a curveball and then they have to find out and deal with whatever whatever they get.
And then in Moto G phone, and the Moto G phone are similar to him while we're going back in the day, we talked about the word MA in the earlier part of this Twitter should those who hold back others or discourage others, right? The discourages now here's the Moto g4 and Moto g4 and those who have spread fear anymore, Jeff, when someone's your juice means they're shivering, shivering literally. And also figuratively, as in being very, very scared of something so emotive he who causes people to be to shiver, which is basically causing them to need to be afraid of that is the figure of speech that exists within this word in the Arabic language. So what I'm gonna do for everything Medina and
in them in the Medina, Medina, those who who spread fear, so unless they're hypocrites, those who have diseased hearts, and the ones who spread fear stop doing what they were doing, don't stop then nobody and Nickleby him then we're going to then we're going to give you permission, and we're gonna set up situations that will allow you to to expose them and allow you to confront them and nobody in academia are going to put together a situation where you have to confront them that nobody and that could be him through Malouda we're gonna Kaffee in la pelea nada after that, they will not be your neighbors for a very long except for a small amount of time in LA kalila just for a small amount of
time though continue to be your neighbors means that they will they will move out.
So what were they doing good
That's the whole. That's the whole point. What were they doing what was going on those with diseased hearts and those who are spreading fear doing, I think is explained by the final. The final one, which were they were spreading fear, actually, the way that I am linguistically works is that because I'm gonna be called the hypocrites and those who have disease towards the middle, there is no clear explanation of what they were doing. The third word is the word that explains their problems with the Moto, G, foo, and F in Medina. So that's, that's what the word is there for to explain what their problem was. So what then went on with the hypocrites, and at the end, if you
follow the middle we're doing in Medina, that there was they were spreading fear amongst people. And they were making people afraid, from what, from whatever they could make people afraid of. Does this sound new to you? Have you heard of this before? The policy of spreading fear amongst people? This is not new. It's been around for a long time. And it's around today, and dirty politics and dirty politicians. And yeah.
totalitarian governments will do that. They will spread fear. If they can get you afraid of something, then they have a green card, a green light to do whatever they want towards it, and allows them to justify acts of horrific acts.
Based on the fact that you and I are afraid because we're afraid we don't care anymore. Doesn't matter.
There's a very sad incident that happened, I think last week, or sometime last week was where a man and he ran over like Around 10 people in Toronto, and then north,
north North York.
How many of you were starting to be a Muslim?
Now he was sitting around saying you're a Muslim? What's his name is his name. I like Alexandre Muslim. Is it not a Muslim nation? Is it last name? Oh, we're not sure it was last name. They speak Arabic and dizzy. Was it we're afraid why?
Even us we were afraid is that every single time someone died? There's some killing. We're like, Yeah, I'm not I'm just not a Muslim dude. Just another one. And then when it's not, yeah, hamdulillah it's like any, any sort of feeling sorrow for those who lost their lives. That day. Any of our loved ones could have been walking down Toronto that day, just a pedestrian area that could have been killed. We should feel sorry for those who lost their lives. But we're not we're being relieved. relieved. It's not it's not us. It's not us because of fear. Mooji funa from the Medina, those who are spreading fear in Medina, Abdullah bin Laden's through this all he did, then whatever
you're doing, that's all they did. Okay.
You know, the love and know, what I'm talking about is the concept of fear. That fear has been spread to the point where even we're afraid.
Fear has been spread to the point well, not only Jonnie non Muslims are afraid of Muslims and then they justify the killing and bombing and destroying countries. We weren't even afraid of it turning about us we have our backs to the
to the ropes, because we ourselves our fear is contagious and it's horrific. It's horrible when you see its effects and effects everyone everyone becomes afraid and then and then those who are afraid it's easy to manipulate and it's easy to do different you can you can accuse them and they'll sit around feeling bad about themselves even though they did nothing wrong. Why would I feel bad? Why would Why would this affect me? I had nothing to do with this I don't believe in anything that allows anything similar to it
in any form the Why am I afraid? Because that's how fear works. And then when did you form an F in Medina are the ones who caused fear they caused fear of a woman who previously did the same thing. He spread fear amongst them and you want to go to the beginning of the surah where What did they say with color equal to men whom yeah three llama Carmela confirms you agree with them told or people of Medina there's no point of standing your ground you gonna get killed, go to your homes, secure your homes and hope that inshallah when they come in they don't kill you. If that's what they tell them they're gonna just some of them to to suit Allah nw 10 hour and the same sort of the beginning of
this surah Our houses are exposed to Allah macchiatos duck tours and you'll be doing the elaphe era there's one runaway just just afraid this scared to the to the spread fear and they tell Muslims oh, what you're doing, what you're doing is going to cause a lot of people to get killed or you're doing is going to bring nothing but sorrow and in difficulty to you and everyone that is like you. This is what they were spreading amongst them. And Allah subhanaw taala finally called it out in the Quran. Ladies and gentlemen, Abdullah they stopped doing this. They stop spreading fear is because they don't want to commit to it but because they themselves are afraid or because it serves them because
when you fear society, this lady is not as productive as it should be. It can't get things done. It's not functional anymore because they're afraid they're scared
They're focused on the on the source of fear. So they can't do anything about it. Ask me about I've lived I lived in the Middle East.
That's how they function. You're afraid. I was taught from the day I was the idea of a kid. And the
handle handle sutra. Everyone's everyone knows it. I just walked beside the wall and say, Please, no problems. I don't want any problems. Just I don't know, if you asked, I didn't hear anything. I didn't see anything. Can you see us talking about politics and say, oh, man, HIPAA, and then the other walls will hear you on the walls? Yeah, exactly. All this culture, just being afraid. And because we're afraid we do nothing. We just sit around. And we've been taught to sit around, we've been taught to do nothing not to be productive. A whole population populations of millions of people who do nothing, and are happy not doing anything, are totally content not doing even though they are
being ripped off by everyone. Even though they're living on the probably the richest Earth value with resource from a resource perspective. And they're okay being poor and having nothing, no, I've done no hope. Because because they're afraid, because they're afraid from something. Something's there to make them afraid. Whatever it is, they're scared of something. And that fear is a I just sit around and because I don't want to get into trouble and they live and it's, it's work it works. The grind is way more joyful and is the only place you'll find it. I go look for them. There's only place you'll find it to
tackling that really difficult one, Moto G from adobea, Moto G, F, or else you'll fall under this warning that Allah subhanaw taala gave Don't be someone who spreads fear. Don't spread fear. Well, I spent my life
I started doing 90s SMA cards and teaching kids when I was very young, and not one person. He supported me. Not even my dad. Like he was okay me learning wasn't okay me teaching for a very long time. Why? Because it's fear. Because Jana, you're gonna get yourself in trouble. You're gonna be taken by this. You know, I don't know why I continued. I'm not sure it was made when it makes you. I don't know why continue because now they go back. I can't even remember what my mentality. My mindset was when I was a kid. I was younger. But it was very easy to start because literally no one was there to support you. And no one was happy, like, oh, yeah, you're doing magic often, but you
shouldn't be doing this because it's gonna get you in trouble. They're gonna take you there. I just spent all my life. And then when, when they finally, when I was 17 The first time I went to a facility, it was like, Yeah, we told you like when they took me into the intelligence facility for the first time, like I told him, he told it's gonna happen.
It's just very, this is how people think that people will go and they're good people. None of these is not talking about anyone that I don't know, love to death, but it's just how people think, and how we're kind of taught to grow up and I was scared going in and I was scared going out and not saying Oh, no, I got it. I was very scared. I was scared, so scared. It's a scary thing. But how will you deal with those who spread fear? Don't be someone who spreads it. If you're fearful of something that's good, that's one thing but don't be someone who spreads fear, the culture, the culture of fear,
the culture of being afraid of things and not taking stances or doing what you need to do out of being scared of something. There's no meaning to the word courage or bravery if fear is in the in the equation there's really no meaning to it like the word courage and bravery have no meaning if you there's no fear. That's what I always ask the kids who's who was braver Superman or Batman
unless there's kryptonite, Superman has nothing to fear you shoot him your ricochet back and kill you. There's really nothing where's the bravery what he does, but when you're when you're vulnerable, you can be hurt you can lose like have something to lose. That's when
you think about it. As a Muslim when you do jihad at any point of your life. If you have nothing to lose you're not brave
if you have nothing to lose, you're not you're not being brave that's not there's no bravery about the prophets I think he talks about which he says once you don't crush me early he was like a hello for me I'd been in Delhi can be shaky somebody took his wealth and left his family and, and went for the sake of Allah guys bravery. First, you're fearing for the future agree, you have things to live for. But you're gonna you're gonna put your foot down and say I will not allow this to happen if I had to pay my life for it. I will. That is bravery. That is courage because there's something for you to lose. But it there's nothing for you to lose. I don't understand how that's bravery. So when
we when we build armies, trying to make those who are on the frontlines feel like they have nothing to lose, just so that they don't run back. It's a really
those who have nothing to lose have no ethics either
have nothing to lose also have no moral code, and they will do anything. And we've seen it in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo. I've seen you've seen even what Muslim people who those who claim to be Muslim will have nothing to lose what they do to others burning and why? Because that's what that's not how it was the prophets I send them always have something to look for and also have a went with him had things that families have something to look forward to, but they did
anyway because it's because he knew it was right and there's a big difference between you doing something right and you have something to live for and you just feeling like life is worthless and useless and you just throw I'm gonna die anyway might as well die doing this it's a very different from another and I don't know this is not all it is
connected kinda to the sorta in a certain way one way or the other because it sort of started at the beginning of the talking about suicide, talking about the Confederate battle and going and breaking down the psychology we kind of talked about these things a bit, but here he calls it out those who are fighting, spreading fear tell them to stop if they don't stop then they will very soon not be your neighbors except for a bit too much. Oh God Oh my coffee Hey, Lachlan, either, then the only spent some time they won't be any of why men ruining because Allah subhanaw taala has cursed them. Those who spread fear and ruin those who spread fear amongst people hide them in their own beat off
some Quran based on the Quranic I need the linguistics. If you spread the fear, then you are someone who was Minoan May Allah subhanho Brioni will protect all of us and show mercy I mean, but anyone who spreads feel Malone, Mundo Nene.
And if they continue to do it, hmm, I thought before wherever you find them, okay, do then captivate them will continue to patina and you and you and you can you can get rid of them, you can kill them put to death a very, very, very difficult i in the Quran talking about a very difficult punishment,
that that put that command or suggest to Muslims to, to use killing as, as a solution are very few, maybe four to five in the whole, most half of you have very, very specific context. And here's one of them.
Those who spread fear, if they continue to do that you need to rid yourself of them, they have to get out. If they don't get out, then you need to search them find them and they need to be they're going to get capital punishment. alonein hmm, I totally okay, we're continuing to patina, we need to apprehend them, within your community, those who spread fear.
And I don't think it's hard to find out why because spreading the culture of fear may not kill someone today. But it will cause
huge amounts of bloodshed in the future, huge amounts of bloodshed in the future. And when we look at what's happening in America today, and how that's all moving forward with the with a culture of fear and hatred, Dr. Fury is best friend hatred, they come as a package, when you spread that amongst people and you continue to do so your outcome of it cannot, it can't be positive, like there's no positive outcome for this. Unless this stops unless we're capable of changing them. As Muslims understanding that is very, very important. We shouldn't be afraid of other groups of people, we shouldn't be afraid of them. And I want you to think about that for a moment. Because
sometimes we do. Sometimes we fear other groups, we fear their way of thought or their way of behavior. When we look at people who we don't agree with their way of behaving that we fear them. We're actually afraid of them. And we scare others from them. You only scare people from something if you believe that what they have is stronger than what you have. From an ideological perspective. Is there any ideology or way of life or way of thought that is superior to the way that Allah subhanaw taala gave us? Do you believe that anything is more superior to the way that Allah we have Allah subhanaw taala? If you don't, then you have the upper hand, and there's no reason for you to
fear the other person to fear what their opinions to fear their thoughts is why would you fear them? I grew up being told I shouldn't read certain books. I was told not to read books.
Like, the first word I was taught is UCLA. And then he told me don't read the book. Why can I read this book? Because then it'll mess with your mind? Why is what this book saying? Gonna make more sense to me than what this book is saying? If so, then I maybe I should read the other book? And if it's not, then then I'll be fine, then I'm going to be fine. Unless you don't understand this book very well. And you're afraid you're afraid of what I'll find out in the other book because you don't know how to deal with it. The problem is yours, not mine.
Why are we afraid we shouldn't be afraid. We shouldn't be afraid of those who have different ways of thought. We shouldn't be very brave. We should take this open. But I know somebody want to debate come. This is the place.
I have a friend who looks forward to when the Mormons or the homeless witnesses knock on the door.
You gotta wait for it. Let's see if we can convert you today. Come on in.
And they're ready to leave after half an hour there. Oh, this is not going very well.
Because it's there's nothing Why are we afraid of what you have to say. And if you do fear, then don't continue to spread it confront, deal with that fear and don't continue to don't spread it that's at least don't spread it. Because it's what the Quran says. Don't spread the word the Moto G phone. And I think the beauty of this is being placed here at the end not placed with the actual story of the Confederate because it was placed there. Then you would say well, this is regarding fearing scaring people during the time of war. No, this I was taken at the end of the surah completely disconnected from that part. Just to the point of you
Jeff, the point of spreading fear is universal. You shouldn't be spreading fear don't make people afraid. Even if it was coming extremely scary, just don't do it.
Spread hope the best thing you can do is spread hope. Because no matter how fearful it is, if it's worth standing for, you're gonna have to show some bravery, why and why add to the challenge? Why make me more scattered, there's no point a certain amount of fear is healthy. Agreed, right, a certain amount of fear is healthy you need is without it, you can't function you've been scared at all, then your your systems won't be hyped up and your cognitive skills won't be ready you won't be able to deal with what's coming. But then if you go a little bit beyond it turns into a whole negative world hole and then you can't get out of it anymore. And you buckle and you stop being able
to deal with things properly. And I think I think that's what we need to only think about when we do these things. So yes, the difficulty is that's what the last I assume that Allah How many times is there a student that Allah for Quran four or five times I'll talk about them in sha Allah very soon. Because coming again then I'll summarize all the times that it came with the sunnah to Allah means this is the way of Allah as a photonic Sunette Allah He so it's not something that Allah is sunnah to Allah, there's a part of the sentence that is that is
that is missing. Sunette Allah He lives in a hollow McCubbin meaning they are being shown or they're being dealt with the Sunnah of the way of Allah subhanaw taala fillerina Holloman Kabul for all those who came before you when digitally Sunette Allah hit a video and you will not find for the way of Allah Subhan to anyone who can change it or can change it. Those who spread fear those who need to be punished. They need to be punished quickly. And we are Kirsten dam Maloney wherever they may be Mundo Nina Enomatic wherever they go, they're cursed. Okay, we will continue to Katina what what happens at the end isn't everybody understanding what happens at the end for them is that they are
caught by the same fear they spread, they're gonna be killed by it as well. The same fear that they spread will come back to them, and it will be there and they will be punished by the same thing that they were spreading the whole time. What are you running away for? Millennium Falcon will Ferraro in phenomenal mode here we'll touch on why you're gonna get away from your own death? Where are you going to go?
You're actually running towards it no matter what you do. It doesn't that doesn't come to you, you go do it. It's a different.
It's a different equation, where it's not coming to us. We're walking towards it. So why are you running? Why are you being any? Why are you behaving based on fear? And why are you spreading fear
that makes sense in this last, this is the last part of the SUTA before the summary of it talks about that.
So probably not one part of who is comfortable to touch upon.
Now, when I talk to blossom is an easy one. Not only is always every sort of this thing that we can talk about that we enjoy, everything's with love is to be hard. Because this that's the point here, it is difficult, learn it, understand it, accept it and see how your faith will develop and it will grow. And I guarantee you that your understanding of things will be very different than others. Once this is a concept sinks in and becomes a clear. Okay, let's move on to the final pages with Lhasa where Allah subhanaw taala will summarize or give us the finale worthy of the surah I'm not sure how far we'll get to but we'll do our best inshallah to to get as far as if you don't. Yes, yes. So
because this is a digital part. Yeah. Yeah. And
like this, to me, comparison to the ones that came in for
us. People will question us. Yeah, we're in that setting. Yeah. So this whole clear, this is talking about the Confederates that time or is this continuous? What's you're asking me about, like the actual killing part? Yeah. And the ruling, this is not there's not there's not necessarily a ruling is not necessarily this, first of all, in Libya and North Korea NACA, we're going to get you to get them out, so to speak into the prophets of Allah, how you sell them specifically. But the lesson from it is general, that we should not tolerate fear we should not tolerate those who spread it. But for the Prophet selected, and specifically at the time, he was going to be given a ruling regarding
those who spread fear. Does that make sense? That's so there is a specificity, specificity of the ruling itself for the profit. So lesson, but the concept is as general as it gets, that's why it was was shot, it was shifted to the end of the sutra, so that we could we could live the concept after reading all the ayat that we read before, but obviously, nobody had Nikka a talking to him. So I said specifically, he's not talking to you and I. So the specificity of that of that ruling is there. And then looking at it also from the example that I gave you is that it's not necessarily he's being commanded to kill them, that this was going to happen to them. Who would have assumed
that Allah which is make more sense, because that's what they at the end is doing that is the way of Allah subhanaw taala wants to even know that everyone who spreads fear is cursed and will be caught by the fear itself and it will be his end, which makes much more sense and I knew from the linguistic perspective, but I shared with you what the ruling was for the prophets and less than them and because I have
This is Ali Sato, Sudan. And I became much more
firm, when talking to them when I 15 are talking about issues of spreading fear, and spreading, spreading negativity and speaking something that will be it that will bring down the morale and bring down the spirits of the Muslim world. And he was much more firm on that. So those of you who would hold their tongues, they wouldn't speak as much. That's why when they came at the time of the book, not many of them had the guts to see, to date to say too much about it mean to scare the Muslim they tried, but they didn't say too much. Because this had already been revealed. And if you're going to spend, spend your time scaring Muslims from doing what they need to do, you're going
to be called out on it. So they just chose to stay back with very few people who said a few things here and there. But it wasn't it wasn't like a job where they're openly in front of the prophets, Elijah and I'm saying yeah, layer three of all people are going to go to your homes, you're going to die today. And you saying what you have to tolerate. So I'm gonna try something like that. Meaning he's leading he's trying to hold down the trench and people are saying this is worth it. We should go home you don't suddenly have to go home or homes are exposed to the old people get there this is a useless stance go home in the middle of a war in the middle of war, you have to tolerate something
like that on a Sunday. But after this idea was made clear, no, we won't tolerate anything like that publicly, you know, you do something on your own that's fine but publicly that's not okay for you to spread fear amongst people. So that was the consequences of this idea coming but the concept of it is I think universal and eternal for us at least to learn from it. Okay, so we'll continue with Java number 63
Yes, you can short answer

you ready Can I less cool body
called Ed Nephi.
Young Wallah, now see your
young man to connect who? Finn.
Law bar now was OODA.
To see the word of Allah Sula on it, there's an elephant she does little symbol on top. It's kind of different from the different from the circles that we see on top of an ellipse. I'll give you example of another one that has a different one on top.
Let me see here.
So where is that?
Okay, yeah, so verse, verse seven D sorry, a Kulu. You see on the LF after the word school and we found it, there is a different circle. So that circle meaning the second one we just talked about now says when
the letter under me never never, you're never going to read it. It's a silent letter doesn't matter whether you're reading continuously when you're gonna stop is a silent letter. But the one that we did have was sulam that one that kind of the oval shape. It says if you're going to stop here, then it give a full Elif of WOSU
and if you want to continuously read then you take away the leaf so whilst learn how to submit work fun that's the that's the concept here. So if you continue will say Well, I never was to lower Paul who was who also turn just to attack because we stopped at the end. It was given a full refund. These are just
that we have this perhaps on altum Utley that have similar things, but we only have a number of a likability factor sub seven, seven LFS that have that oval symbol on top. There are two of them in the Surah two right after each other. So the one that we read, and the coming next is gonna have the same thing at the end of it. Work on Robin

Yes. Oh you can nurse and
people will ask you are asking you about the hour. And of course what is referring to is to milk piano as we all know. So if you can sue Anissa
the ask you about the our call in ama in Maha. And Allah say, indeed exclusively the knowledge of this is with Allah subhana wa Tada, animal handler in them. I mean, exclusively, there's no, this is all that that's all there is to see about this one man. Are you doing EAC? And what do you know, the analysts, the Kunal party, maybe maybe the PSA, maybe the hour is as close as near maybe the timing of it is nearer than you think. Oh my God. Now in the Quran, whenever you see omega DDQ, then what's coming next? You don't know the answer to you're not unique. And what do you know? If you say, Well, Matt, I don't like then you do know what the answer is. A body? mental body? Yeah, who am I like I'm
in Korea, then what do you know about to Korea and Korea to me, okay, well, we know something about so as I've gone, it's done in the past tense is always you know, what's going to come next Omega Greek, you never know what we're actually doing. Because no one knows when your multicam is going to meet the prophets of Allah. Islam doesn't know it either. He doesn't know your salat wa salam he never did.
And there's a lot to talk about here. I'm not gonna I'm not gonna go into details here, because we're coming to a point where we'll talk about that a bit more, in terms of what he knew some lessons learned regarding what he didn't. But no one knows what's exactly going to happen.
The old doomsday mentality, that the end of time or kind of preparing for it and looking for the signs for it, and just kind of is a very, very
problematic way of thinking. And it's not Islamic in any form. We're not supposed to be trying to find out what, in what stage of time we are, and trying to say, you know, if this seems to be the end of time that you're not going to disclose, because all that really does, it does only one thing just makes you less likely to do anything, or to try anymore, because it's the only case coming close. What's the point, it's all falling to pieces, I can just sit around and enjoy the show. And I just watch things fall to pieces and just I know what's happening next. I know, there's no point I shouldn't be trying to change something inevitable.
Actually, the whole point of us knowing your milk Pm is coming and understanding what your milk IAM is, is for that we try to postpone this as long as possible. You try to push away the day where Allah subhanaw taala will be angry with his creations. There's not a day that we look forward to. You don't look forward to that day, you don't participate in making that day, any sooner, you'll not try to push that day as far as you can. If you know that ignorance is one of the signs of that day, you know, and you work on lessening the amount of ignorance in the world. If murder and Jani and hatred are things the Prophet SAW Selim and he did talk about signs of the dangers but we tried to
postpone that by listening these things how do you that talk about other stuff in detail or Hadith that are very questionable in there in terms of their of their authenticity? And what the meaning of these Hadith and the interpretation of these Hadith actually are? Because the Quran is much clearer here. Yeah, call in Mr. Elmo handover say exclusively the one who knows about this in the knowledge of this is with Allah and tell them Omega did he know what do you know? I listen to Kunal kaliba, maybe the hours is very near or sooner than then you think, in Allah, La Annelle caffeine, della whom say you're on Indeed Allah Subhana. Allah has cursed the disbelievers and prepared for them.
fossa is a fire that is well. That was well lit. I talked about this, I think maybe a couple of months ago. I had to do this every couple of months because just in case those who are here are new. Don't hear whenever the Quran refers to well, caffeine is always referring to caffeine within the context of what the surah is talking about here is not talking about caffeine, in the terms of them just being people who disbelieve you just don't agree with you. So there are Minoan, no, this is talking about caffeine, who are who are the Confederates who came to try and destroy the city of the prophet or something
I said, so talking about cafeteria and how to begin those who declared war upon upon the prophets lie Selim. It's important that when we go through as students like the Toba, for example, like parts of Switzerland failed, so is that we're talking about the other camp in in times of war, or in times of of transgression or times of oppression, or persecution. That when Allah says referring to the machete cane, or referring to caffeine, he's not referring just to everyone who disbelieves No, it's referring to those specifically caffeine, even the ones who came and did what they did to the Prophet. So let's add them to the Sahaba and those who do something like them, in no way no, there's
nowhere in Islam to be found or in the Quran, where Allah subhanaw refers to a disbeliever, who is in very much
living in harmony with Muslims respecting them, not harming them, that we that they are cursed and damned and that we should go do it come down on them with that there is no such place in the Quran. Unless, unless you they do specifically what I've been trying to explain through mate of zeal that we shouldn't do is that you don't pull it out of a sutra and just slap it on Yanni on a piece of slogan, just walk around until it look good. Because there's a whole suit attached to this idea. There's a wholesaler with a lot of a lot of data and a lot of concepts here a lot of terminology that is being prepared so that when he says it guy for you understanding what he's talking about,
he's talking about the ones we just talked about a second I'm gonna clean that up a little bit muddled in the mortgagee food and
all these people what they did.
Those who, who harmed the Prophet selected and harmed the Muslims talking about these ones. Not talking about all carefully not all carefully. There is a suitor that talks about qualia, you will go if you don't let them do you know Camillia Dean, you have your faith and I have mine, there is one that talks about with no context at all use that if you want to use something with no context, but you take an eye out and there's not one that they do that with but just give you an example. If you're yanking it out and just say this is what would you read where's the rest of the sutra you understand the context of the student the theme what time it was when it was revealed what is
talking about what message is trying to put forward you don't even know the either before or after you just yanking this out and that is extremely dangerous and it's very wrong and it kills the eye and it makes you and you can understand the Quran properly you don't enjoy it even when you look at it differently you start understand the crime becomes alive in you're capable of actually interacting with it and benefiting from it. So this is talking about that specifically, highly DNF the eternal eternally be there be in that fire now as you do in Abdullah as you don't, they will never find Willie and someone to stand by them will not see it or someone to help them. They won't
find an ally and they won't find someone to help them. Yo mama to call Lebu June as they're being moved from one place. Their faces are being moved from one part of Jahannam one part of the Hellfire to the other. Yeah, cool down there. We'll be seeing you early tena, here comes the theme of the surah and the cluster of surah. They're going to come early dinner upon Allah. I wish I wish we will be it Allah subhanaw taala while buying or selling we obeyed the prophets. Isn't that the theme? The theme is obedience and submission. That's what we've we've established at these clusters today I'm gonna talk about so at the end of the first Surah is a kind of Yani reminder that some will be
removed within Jahannam than the hellfire. And there'll be saying, I wish we wish we obeyed. I wish we submitted. I wish we listened to what Allah subhanaw taala says and what the Prophet said, and we just we just did it. And at that point, because they didn't, they start looking for, for example, for it for excuses. And the best excuse they come up with is the following recording Rob banner is a oh Lord, in a binary, that we're co borrower. And indeed, We have obeyed instead of view. Our chiefs and our leaders, and those who have status amongst us Senate and our Cobra said, are the leaders and the chiefs and Cobra and those who have status, our elders, for the Luna sadena they and they took
us astray. They sent us down the wrong path.
That doesn't matter.
That's the point that is established your middle camera really early on. Because that is the argument of most people
wasn't me. I swear, I swear it wasn't. He told me. I did whatever they told me to do. They were our leaders and I just walked I swear to you, I did not mean to do any of this. It was just it was just them. It was the situation he starts explaining. It doesn't matter. He's established early on, that doesn't matter. We're not interested in this. It's gonna happen again. And so somebody's coming the same, the same example once again. Why? Because it's talking about obedience, the SUTA Who do you obey? Who do you submit to? It's only him so only Allah is upon that you submit to no one else. If you submit to anyone else, that's your fault, and you're going to have to carry that it's your
choice. You made a choice to obey someone else carry that Yamo piano, but do not come with that argument that I obeyed someone else I submitted someone else or was led by someone else or was invalid
As by someone else you are required to obey Allah subhanaw taala. So if you obey Allah subhanaw taala and then I come and tell you something that goes against everything you know that Allah subhanaw taala teaches, then you do not listen. Because your obedience is not to me or to any other email or che accord leader or president or your obedience is for Allah subhanaw taala. That makes sense. This is why this these are Yatra here, do not ever use that. And that is going to be repeated in the students to come a number of times to remind us of the same concept that you're responsible for what you do, do not use that I was led by others and I obeyed my superiors, your only superior
that you should have obeyed was Allah subhanaw taala and as prophets of Allah holiest language
so when they find out that they have nothing else to say about Robin our Lord to him, they are failing to give our leaders and our chiefs two folds of punishment. Well I know Milan and Kabira encouraged them a huge enormous Chris are down with them even more yellow, the best they can do, you'll find in the corner so you're gonna find it sort of to the side again, this cluster of suitors you'll find this and sort of seven and then again into the study you'll find the same wording you're
gonna know that them have both why? Because they see what they did. Oh my god, how did I lose into you? The remorse and regret in the end is huge because you don't have to why did I sell my mind? Why did I let you know mislead me? Why did I do it? Why didn't I think through these things for myself? My obedience was supposed to be for Allah my submission was supposed to be for love but I gave it to you. And now I know this is not helping me. You Allah subhanaw taala accepting my excuse, you're not helping me. The best thing I can do is is Make dua that Allah subhanaw taala punishes you more the thing is they will be punished more but not because they made dua to Allah let me make that clear
it's not because you said anything but they will obviously because if you miss him asleep somewhere on his guide someone then you will be held accountable for your sin and then you'll get a copy paste of theirs without them losing any any amount of this Okay, we have a time I think for one more I actually which is awesome. So next time we read the finale and I have time to kind of summarize the pseudo which is great so let's read one more Yeah, are you loving
work in the law he wear jeans
so the reason that we just read her there is a reminder for all of us you see it was very it was very tight it was very scary it was difficult but it's a reminder of submission obedience is only for Allah you come with obeying someone else's was gonna be in this situation it'll be an interesting the caffeine are explained later. Not all caffeine, caffeine, specifically this caffeine was made that choice. So this is not this is not saying everyone is believer, it's those who fall under this category. So every time you find a word in the Quran terminology a word that is used the Sunnah is either already explained before at the beginning or is about to explain it in the MO You
remember we did something similar with the gaff where the word caffeine was there as well and
then it was explained what he meant by coffee and again you'll explain it subhanaw taala he'll use a term tell you what it means right after it so that you don't but if you want to cut and paste you can do that by taking kind of slap it somewhere and then any mislead What about those who were misled by people who do that?
What about them are they exempted from this
you come to a layout of a cause all these problems but the person who who led me was a you email a mama and the Quran was your you're
you didn't you didn't look in enough it's your fault
whatever I tell you here is you listen to it you like it you go on you don't like it you come back and you Yanni you debate or argue with me if you don't like it you go you don't have to listen to me. I have no authority here. I do my best of interpreting you don't it's your life is your mind don't sell it to me don't tell anyone because I can't carry this for your multicam and you have to carry yourself back and barely carry mountains.
Linux takes hours except someone expect someone you'll milk the amateur to carry things for you. They'll just come and and we love doing that as well don't we? Oh we love doing that again another way to make it mystic then I'll just come standing beside the prophets. I said oh and he'll just leave on the ship this ship full and Mulan Mulan.
Mulan of hula and part is the best part. We go in we just we kiss his hand class. Now we're going to be standing in his Yanni or on his throne room. Okay, he'll take us well, why? Where did you find that in the book? Allah subhana talks that no one is gonna help anyone just just Yeah, it's all what you did is who you submitted to and how you that's what's going to help you do
Again another example of practicality being yanked out altogether and just making it easier by saying cut us. Others will take care of us.
Yeah, so easy. It's easier that way. Whether this is saying here
to ADA denominator All right, we'll just do this one in the next time. We'll start with the second one. This one letter cool. Oh, those who believe that's excellent. Do not be like Levina don't also don't be like those who harmed Mussolini's Fabella who love them in that Allah subhanaw taala proved his innocence from what they said about him. What kind of end Allah He was, yeah, and he has always been in the eyes of Allah Subhan Allah subhanaw taala someone would you have come from Majid the face when he I mean someone who has face value or someone who was very valuable, the face is usually the symbol of the human being himself. So what gmec is a valuable person in the name of Allah in the
eyes of Allah Subhan someone who had any a lot of
significance and importance and status. So what is the story with Musa ways Musa coming into this, at the end, because of the similarities of how the Prophet sallallaahu Selim was harmed and how Musa alayhis salam was harmed, moves out, he said, um, he was someone that had been used to like either living in slavery for so for so long, they had lost a certain amount of
kind of social morals so they were more comfortable with with nudity. It was something that the book, the Torah, clearly explained now. And we have the same in the Quran. And the moose is that I'm a someone who loves Twitter. He always Yeah, he wasn't comfortable with it. I don't know if you've been to a public pool, where there's just men, and you walk into the changing room and you're like, Oh, yeah.
Hello, and people just standing what because the lack of understanding of our own so and how to dress properly. So the moves it isn't wasn't that type of person. He didn't like that. So he would always cover and then someone they started to say things about him. They start to say things about him, he would say, you know, he must have some Jani physical defect or he may he must have something wrong with the way he looks. That's why he's covering himself so much. Right? And then Allah subhanaw taala approved it and since then, we don't know exactly how there's some stories. I don't I'm not interested in bringing up the narrations. But Allah subhana proved his innocence. When he
brought to them when someone killed was killed in they said, how do we know who killed them? And so he was Bacara. He told them to slaughter a cow for Kadota. Now who's what what you're mocking us Are you lost your mind? Right? So they mocked him on Easter. So he told them, he told us about Putin essence again. And then he told them Come, let's say we're gonna cross the desert from Tehran and go to the to the to the Holy Land. And then when they're in the middle of the desert, they say, Yeah, Musa you you're leading us nowhere. You're leading us nowhere. We were better off staying slaves with the Pharaoh is what they told the Mossad. He said, I'm not sure what moves and mosaics
suffered immensely with these people. Right. And then Allah proved an instance after he died, when they finally entered this the holy land and they ruled for for many years with the wooden sword, he made it he must have done.
Where are the examples? What happened at the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they said he married the ex of his own son, even though that wasn't the case. And they said, I didn't Allah who want to sue who Allah who wrote on the day of the Confederate, so that He promised us so they said, Mr. Muhammad, as promised, this was just a lie. They're going to destroy us and kill us. Right? They mocked him, some of them. When entering his home and mistreating and thinking things about his wives, Ali, Ali has salatu salam or are calling him names that they shouldn't or spending too much time, they will he was hurt someplace. And by all this many things caused him pain on yourself. So
the idea here is just a reminder, again, remember, there's three reminders. So far, I've established satellites, and why because we're supposed to learn from the sutra his humanity. And if you want to learn his humanity, at least, you have to balance it out with understanding his status, at least, I'm having them both. If you can do both, you will love him in a different way. You will love this man in a very, very different way. Because you'll see him as a human being who had this impeccable ethical code that wasn't based on a gift he was given, but rather based on a lot of effort that he put in a lot of perseverance and patience, and the sacrifice for him to hold on to his morals in the
way that he did. Some of them. They were talking about something called Muhammad Allah, which are the pearls of wisdom that even I thought let's secondary, left around 260 piece of wisdom that were heavily explained and interpreted and
talked about by scholars in the last maybe, yeah, 700 800 years. There are many, many books that were
written just to explain them in their very, very valuable and very deep. I talked about the first two when I talked about the third a bit but not much time to explain So explain to me, he says, So him me
So it's attached to the parallelism before it is a it's a kind of a spin off of it. And what it means is to be equal to Him means early and strong initiatives.
And a lot of ambition and hard work. That's what so I call him a means letter request for a doctor. They don't Pierce or penetrate the high walls of destiny. It's a figure of speech, obviously, what is he trying to say here? You see when the wisdom before talking about two states that you're in, or they're in the state where you're dealing with the laws of the universe, and you are trying to make a living or trying to improve life for yourself or those around you are being uneven in the form. And the practical way that you can, in another state where you're in the state of labor, the state of any of Heaven is Earl, where you're isolated, where here you're dealing with ALLAH SubhanA wa
Tada, where you're worshiping Him in a way, and you're making dua to him, and you're outside the world of
practicality, and carrying that balance, knowing when you need to do this, and when you need to do that, and how you need to be with Allah subhanaw taala, when he commands you to be with him in that state of hype, and when he commands you to be in the state of Shahada. And if you start switching them, you ruin your own faith and you ruin your own practice. And understanding that is important, this third Pearl of Wisdom, what he's saying is that, yes, you will work very hard, and you have to, and that's what you're commanded to do. You're going to do your best and exhaust every resource and put your 110% in what you are doing, but do understand that you cannot penetrate destiny, you can't
change destiny, what is destined by Allah subhanaw taala will happen. But even with that, you're still going to do your best. And when you say, well, what's the point? Well, that is if you understand that you'll become the Muslim you want to become. Understanding that your effort is a part of his destiny, subhana wa Tada. And they're saying that when you do your best, and when you push yourself to the limits, that is a part of destiny, that he put forward subhanaw taala. And understanding destiny in that very, very large, in a very broad perspective is what allows you to actually live your life peacefully, no matter how hard things become, you know how much loss you
you, you go through, because you understand it's all part of a destiny that you are given. You're doing your job as a part of destiny as well. And I think that I don't want to be very, I want to generalize too much because it's rude. But I do think that the mass, vast majority of Muslims don't really understand the concept of a codon. So what I'm gonna do next time, I'm not going to read the fourth hikma, no, I'm going to talk about destiny for around 15 to 20 minutes, and break it down a bit. So that we have
I guess, a similar understanding of what that's supposed to be it because there's more than one thing here and I think that in many, many Muslims, even especially young Muslims, who get into theology, they hit this brick wall because they don't really know how to deal with with some of these concepts of this. We're going to do inshallah again. Next week will continue after I'm gonna be only have maybe another couple of weeks before Ramadan comes in to flip this to some Saturday and Sunday after sort of conversion and we'll continue we'll start a different store at that time. Well, thanks, guys, and we'll stop reading until
