Are you using the phone?
No, I was just
so, I was asked the question, how long will
I have zero idea of a logo taking the difference until at least two or four sessions and
I was eager.
It will be clear to me until after a number of questions how long it will take us. I can tell you one thing though it will not be boring. So it is not boring.
But it wants to interesting actually seeking to recite especially with you they do but you've
done a number of several times before at least the first part because of what the story or the suit was actually, as soon as named after a certain story within it. And you know, that story of course is the anchor story and the sisters
generally the next time more people talking.
Now first before we start reciting, I will talk a little bit about this so that we all take a bit of a understanding of when it was revealed. And
now it is a mechanism that the mid Mackey's
were talking about the timing when the Quraysh was either trying to negotiate with the Prophet someone lives, or there was a lot of physical and financial and social oppression that was falling upon Muslims and people moving out of Mecca to have Russia and some people were actually trying to relieving money elsewhere, running away with their religion. And the process of my sentence life was I was threatened and the early the Muslims and I just accepted Islam or been a Muslim for a number of years, we're going through a lot of difficulties. So this is basically the timing when to look up was revealed. And it's very conveniently set the place in the center of the alt right in the middle.
So if you want to find like the middle part of the Quran, you have to go a couple of pages into it. Basically, the 15th end is number seven, the four of swords, is right in the middle. It's not in the middle of a fight comes in the central part of swords,
which also gives it a certain level of importance. Now what we know about sort of government comes from what the prophets of Allah Allah Allah
is that maybe has some level of there's some debate on its authenticity, but it's a hadith has been used very, very commonly among people on the Juma
the laity Juma kinda Lauren Makini will bathe in it okay, I don't know run for FEMA, Murdoch climbing Giamatti Hill and this morning, meaning those who recite sold recap on the native Jomar in the day of Jamar, then this will be a light for Him until the end of the week or from the where he isn't too much. There's a lot of debate on the authenticity of this hadith. And whether actually the prophets almost worded it that way, or this is an understanding of a hobby we don't know for sure, but many of the scholars are most scholars, if not all the scholars of Islamic law have taken this hadith and work by it and shared it often. And I see no harm in undertaking the blessing of
assigning to the death because of the fact that it became such a wide spread practice that almost all most of the time, you know, all the time being recited Suzuka within the night of June we're not going to do now I don't know any other surah in the Quran that has anything similar, has a similar status attached to it. Meaning that there's a day of the week where you're supposed to read this sooner. I mean, there is also read the Quran that I am aware of that you are supposed to read at least once a week beside him certain work where it is said that you should read it before you go to sleep. And there's some debate upon that as well. And maybe starting small students that you really
have to follow it. But for there to be as to around 10 pages, which is almost sandwiches. And there's a day of the week that you're supposed to be every single day which is the day the best day of the week, the end of the week or the beginning of the week, depending on how you look at it within Islamic
Islamic life or lifestyle. You can see this at the end of the week or the beginning of the week. And you're supposed to be the Store gives a level of importance that is almost unparalleled by any other sort of client. We also the prophets I said MC voted we have a number of Hadith. And the rager seem to differ a bit on the fact when they say Mankato,
Minnesota, but also in the fitness the gentleman would actually omen.
And they got a different one which I had to do that we're supposed to read that will defend you or protect you from the fitna of the end of time. Right and the kind of different parts of the gods that's why most scholars
Shafilea specifically say that you just read the whole thing because the difference of opinion and structure the last 10 yards and the Maliki look at the first day. But regardless, there's another something else that is attached to the importance of food because that again, when you look at other sources, you don't find these you'll find
Some such similarities when it comes to the importance of this. Now.
Of course, if you memorize it, then you're more likely to recite it. Right? So, again, the word spa in Arabic, is a word that has multiple meanings. And sometimes it's, it's explained as recite, and sometimes it's understood as memorize and then recite it. Sometimes it's referring to the fact people understand that as well, and comprehend and maybe reflect. So there's the word thought is a very multiple,
complex word that has many uses now.
So to Catherine, my understanding is what I'm going to be explained to you as we go through it is a Surah that talks about has four stories in it. So basically, it is divided into four sections, and then a finale or a summary at the end. And it has an introduction at the beginning of that will be enjoyed today.
What is the purpose of Fukuoka, Fukuoka? Many scholars in the early age talked about the fact that he talks about different types of fitness, or different types of
difficulties, or problems that happen to people's life. But I seem to be a bit different, although it talks about the tools, or the components or the elements that are needed for the human being, or the human experience, to build their civilization, for them to actually move forward to rise above, living a poor life, financial, or divided life socially, or an ignorant life when it comes to intellectually, or a week later when it comes to power. And as we look at the four elements that sort of talk about looking for stories, they're very, very important. And they're very, very specific. So super gas is going to talk about the intellectual issue, we're going to talk about the
theology, the Creed, the way of thought the way of life, the personal choice. And what that what comes with that mean, what is it how it is you're going to live your life? What are the ideas you're going to base your life upon? What are you willing to do for that? Are you serious about it? Or is it just culture? Is there something that you actually extend for? Do you stand for something? Or do you stand for nothing, and it's just a matter of this, how everyone lives. So this is how I live. But if we were to break you down, or to bring you down and ask you to break down your understanding of why it is you live the way you live, or what it is that you stand for in life? Or what are your
fundamentals, or your principles that you may not have much to talk about. So the first part talk about the ideas. The first thing you build anything on a community, a society, and nevertheless, a civilization in the future. The idea, it's always the idea, it's always the strength of that first idea. Now, the second story talks about well, the second element is in order for you to be able to build anything you need money, money is needed, we need wealth, and that wealth will work. And you'll find that every story talks about these ideas from every single angle, you'll find it very rich, you'll talk about ideas, they'll talk about how you're supposed to use them, what good ones
exist, and how you can misuse and how you can have a problem with ending with using ideas, you can turn into a very superficial person doesn't have many ideas now get how that can can backfire. Then it talks about in the second story, it was like Well, well, he was talking about how it can be used properly. And I'll turn the opposite and become a reason for your corruption. It could cause you to lose everything. The third element of
of without is knowledge is L.
L that is not talking about religious you say Well, isn't that the same thing that I got? No, no, because God does not talk about knowledge. It talks about a stamp. It talks about something Who are we going to start to explain today make sense. The third element is knowledge. The more we know, the more the better we are educated, the more we are capable of actually moving forward and building. The force is the power that comes with, with with profit organization of a society, whether we speak politically, or we speak militarily, it doesn't make a difference. Power comes from organizations within societies, you have an organized community, you will have power. And that power can lead to
do great things. And it can lead to do very horrible things as well. So look at what type of four elements wisdom you build, if you want you're building tools. And I think we'll all and that is why I believe that we are supposed to be this every single week. Why? Because if at the beginning each week, remind yourself of the elements that are needed in order for you to build in order for you to make something great in order for you to go from very simple existence, a weak existence support existence and ignorant one to one that is that has a much brighter future where there is wealth and there is no vision, there's power, and there's a standard and there's serenity and tranquility that
comes with that. And these are the elements that you need. And this is how you're supposed to be.
if you look at it when those who said no, so it kind of talks about fitting, it works the same way. See the same tools can be used to build the same tools can be used to cost fit and it's the same thing. It's a double edged sword. You use it
It's however you want to use it. If you misuse it, then you will cause a lot of misfortunes and a lot of clarity
in order to navigate. And if you use it properly, then you will build, you will build something that you can be proud of something that you can set up another lesson in be glad that you're a part of thinking that you're actually a part of this. And that is the basic idea of something tough. With that comes a lot of interesting and intriguing arguments that you'll find in the Sunnah, and stories of course that will be attached to it, you'll begin to show up very exciting the first couple of ideas and I'll explain a few more ideas as we go along. So the first story of course, in the story is going to be the story that the story was called based upon wishes to which is Reka.
Now, before we begin, there is a set of numbers that comes from this. What happened was
Quraysh had grown tired of continuously arguing with the prophets of Allah, how do you sell them and losing the arguments? Every time they argued with him, every time they had a debate with him where they talked to him, they lost, and they lost bad because they didn't know anything or ignorance in the process a lot. He was alarmed ideas he brought forward were very strong in their nature, the ideas of Islam are strong ideas, it's done was never built upon.
A lot of wealth, or flashy titles, or even flashy and decorated armies, it was more it was based on the strength of the idea that beat would be everyone who came in contact with the dean. And to me, it was the strength of the ideas that existed within it. So when I decided okay, the only way we can finally or ultimately prove that Mohammed Salah Holly Are you selling them is lying is for us to beat him in the same in what he is good at, which is the intellectually and the ideas he has. So they they actually took upon themselves a conquest and they went to yesterday, and to Nigeria and and the different parts of Arabia, seeking out scholars of Christianity and Judaism. And asking them
give us things we can go back and talk to Mohammed about asking questions, and he will not know how to answer we can prove that he doesn't know what he's talking about. So give us so they came up with three questions with three basic ideas, that if the people told him that he will never know about this, even if he studied the Talmud, even if he's read, read, read the the first testament and the second testament, which he didn't do some of those. And again, you can read, but even if he did, if you had read these things, or someone explained it to them in it to him in detail, these stories don't exist. So we're going to give you a couple of stuff that he will not know, it's impossible.
These are things only scholars talk about. Right? It exists in every faith, by the way, even in ours not to say that there's knowledge that is withheld from you. But there are certain things that scholars will talk about amongst themselves within scholarly group that will not be shared with everyone just based on the fact that it's not that beneficial.
So there are going to be questions. The first one was the question that is going to be answered by the first story of the surah to ask him about the sleepers that did not wake but did not a week, sent home. I know home in Edina and um to my father whom Allah with him, and I don't Can you ask him about those? Okay, what else? And I asked him about it. And then he asked the person about the guy who went around the globe and he conquered most of the earth asked him about him. He's not going to the third question asked him about the rule, asking about the soul and see what he can say.
So the Prophet SAW, I said, when he came in, he asked in the African
Hebrew component, I will ask you tomorrow. And generation, even though I don't think it's very, it's very authentic. But I will just let you know that this is what most scholars talking about, but only upon Insha Allah, they didn't say in sha Allah and then later he said in sha Allah, I don't know, the authenticity on that narration is not very strong. I don't think it's, I think kind of kills a lot of the importance of the surah of what he's talking about. But he said, I will answer you and then he did not come to campus. It is actually this is a living example, or is living evidence that the prophet the prophecy of Muhammad Allah,
because when they came, asked him, he told them I would answer you tomorrow and then for 15 days, why he did not come and he couldn't answer and of course we're walking around seeing
for all different coalition Medina police are to talk about in the video that we had a couple of questions. And he told us you the IRS has been in like two weeks now and nothing but football or something rasool Allah, the Prophet saw them coming became very tired and very upset. And he starts feeling bad because he doesn't know the process of like, I did not know the stories. Oh, you got to know the story of the colony. You don't know what to say, Well, unless Allah subhanaw taala gives him the information he does not really have anything to say.
For 15 days and then Allah subhana wa Tada
sent Gibreel with the answers of the questions to the questions would be within sort of guff, and one of them will be in sort of this rock and roll he would often come up. And then the Prophet saw myself and answered them. When he asked them what sort of God basically he just recited to them.
I'm so bitter and knows how to get your Latini. Can I go back and he would go on until the end of the story. And then the people who heard the story would take it back to those whom ask the question. And those who ask the question had nothing to say. You could have the of how detailed the product was, like them was answering to the client, how detailed the Quran answer was no accurate. It wasn't every in every aspect. And they said, Well, you know, that's exactly in our books a second to a second. And then everyone just kind of forgot about it. But they enjoyed the 15 days where they could spend read all the time that he doesn't know, we asked him he couldn't answer. It's been 15
days now. And he enjoyed that time. But once he answered the kind of dissolve, and just kind of disappeared for a while, maybe took a big vacation for two weeks and then came back, hopefully people forget about it by then we probably won't happen now.
So that's basically the premise of what we're talking about, just understand, like, why it was revealed, what the purpose of it is, I think it's a beautiful purpose, a beautiful purpose. And I think that the point of it is very, it falls perfectly with the idea of reciting it every week, at the beginning of the beginning of every week, remind yourself of the four elements that you need, you need to have the ideas, you have to understand you have to have the concept, the principle of why you're doing what you're doing and what you're willing to do for it, and how how far you're willing, you're actually willing to go for this idea? And what are you willing to sacrifice for it?
And? And how, how much are you willing to put up with things for it? You need, you need to work for the wealth, you need to work for the science, that for the knowledge you need to have have some level of organization and power. These are the few things that you if you look at Islam, look at Muslims, from a bigger perspective, take a bigger step back and look at it. Of course, this is extremely we need this, we need to have all the all four elements. Where do we start?
problem that we don't seem to know, where do we start, if you start at the end of it will remain you're making a variable, you begin with what the Quran began with, you start with,
you start with that, you need to have the idea. You need to understand what it is you stand for me to decide the principles of what we're and these principles, you can't understand them alone, everyone around you needs to is to share them with you. Yeah, you have to share a common ground of fundamentals or foundation of what it is that we stand for. And then if we have that we start moving forward problems and hope that nothing will happen. Nothing will happen.
It's been, it's been observed too many times in history for this not to be a fact an undisputed fact, people have come together with money, they have come together with science, they have come together with power. But without that idea. Nothing is worthy. It's worth nothing. Now, where do we suffer today as Muslims?
Do we suffer with money? No. We are Muslim countries sit on the biggest reservoir of oil that was found and we have some of the richest countries with minerals and, and resources when it comes to wealth is not wealth. When it comes to science, science now is no longer a problem we've never been
poor or when it comes to science, the Muslim civilization has always been ahead. And today it's not hard. Science is simpler. We have a lot lack of engineers and doctors and teachers in our Muslim community. Not not by a longshot. He said power is is our lack of ability to organize not that either. We are capable of doing that as well. There's so many of us. And we live in such we don't live in different places we live in one way or another all around each other isn't that's not the problem. The problem is the idea. You have lost track of the basic idea what it is we stand for, we don't even know anymore. If I ask everyone to explain to me what is it that we stand for? I will get
as many people here I'll get as many different answers, we'll get 30 different answers that will differ sometimes I'll fundamental issues and what it is that we need to work on and where is it that we lack? And what is it that we have to focus on what comes to and this is what we're missing. And this is why sort of guy was important because when you look at it breaks that down in a way that almost leaves us with with no excuse. If you also look at it and you're reading it every week, then you definitely know how this is going to happen. And what is it that it requires of us and how actually simple and easy it is if there was just a will I guess maybe maybe that's another thing,
maybe a will to actually take on some difficult some difficult challenges. Okay, so that is the premise of it, and it will begin
want to get as much done per day and then I'll tell you how long this will take. Take a number of months. I'm not sure exactly.
But inshallah it will not lack intriguing and very, very important concepts and shoulders, we
will be led in a shape on your body.
Bismillah your Walkman your Wafi
Al Hamdulillah him levy Zilla ad in Quito?
see on the top of a wedge, you'll see a small scene I think in most of them
do all the Muslims have had the scene, some of them think there's a one of the one that will bring the didn't have it. But anyways, either seen it's called a sector lever. So it's just it's a
simple stop or a pause if you make. Now this pause requires that if you were to read this I am
continuously with the eye after it. And you can do that with different ideas you can put them you can keep whatever you have, you don't have to stop at the end of an if you don't want to. So if you want to continuously read with the eye after this would say that you'd have to stop and have a small pause. So you couldn't say a word young by gamma, which is the word that comes right after it. You have to say what am the idea, I know who you are, by game and you know what is a pause, it's a small stop without taking breaths, you just kind of pause for a second. Now if you decide to stop at the end of this, what you need to do with that scene.
Nothing nothing. If you decide to stop at the end of the aisle, it's okay to see it's not even written, the scene is only written, it's only
interested in if you had the intention to continuously recite the first time with the second one, which is not really something most people do. Now the reason being because the word Elijah is
making money straight. And they're talking about two different things when you read them together that kind of gives the illusion to the person hearing that what is it is crooked isn't straight doesn't make any sense. And a lot of things in the Quran are like that, when you see a small scene, you'll see them a couple places, like one of the most notorious ones, you probably all know it's been
around Allah for moving correct. So we don't say, Don't worry, because I don't know why that actually has a meaning in the Arabic language. It just makes no sense whatsoever. Unless you unless you know that he is allowed in Iran. So most scholars, or certainly citations habits, of course, if you hear someone who's saying it, but why and there's nothing wrong with that because other citations don't have a problem. As we say they just say you can you can be to continue this. So when I tell you the scene exists and you should stop if you want if you have the intention of reciting continuously. The reason I'm telling you that because what we're reading in right now, and it's
called have fun, awesome. That's the name of your citation. Nobody official could be you. That's the long table. So that's what we're reading by and when we read by the APA citation there's a number of laws that come with that re citation or rules that we should we should abide by that if you want to change the citation you'll find different rules when it comes to these small little details in the way that we're supposed to be. But that's the reason they're worth the scene is there in case you were wondering if you weren't wondering so forgive me for the last couple of seconds. You go on and show by game and Legion do all that backson. Shady mill dune
mill mill that don't so the known mill is not recite is not pronounced that also mill mill that don't if you're going to continue mill don't who if you want to continue? Why you mushy all meaning a levy in Munoz Solly had another home earlier on has an
Mackay fee Nephi
nipc, as he
explained those verses before we move on. Alright, one of the very few sources in the Quran that begin with Hamdulillah. Now when other students begin with 10 105, give me one. In fact, I will else.
Father, come on
you have more
you can obviously the
easiest to get to because that's someone who actually really so those are the students that begin with that begin with praising to Allah Subhan Allah. And it's like, again, I said this a couple of times before, whenever you find the beginning of the sutras to be similar, especially when it comes to the miraculous letters. I can defend meme or solid or it's like a coding at the beginning. It tells you that these students that have the similar beginning have similar themes, or similar ideas, and they do and when you look at all five solos, they all do maybe we'll talk about that maybe in the next slide. I'll talk about the actual next helicopter the helicopter that we're talking about
why they're similar, but to begin with Praise be to Allah subhanho wa Taala
and whenever the Sunnah because it's praising it means that was it. Is it
extra special. So yes, everything in the Quran is miraculous, and everything in the Quran is glorious, glorious and beneficial. But whenever this humble, then you know what's in here is extra special, just like sort of the fact Yeah, extremely special one of the, it's like the, you know, the sort of you cannot read any other sort of notes about the eyes, like you're not allowed to say a word of Quran if until you read fat. Yeah, firstly, everything's understood under the umbrella of swords. So you can understand the Quran if you want, but under the umbrella of this big one here, in fact, it kind of paves the way for how you're going to understand there's a decline. And so that
kind of is no is no exception to the rule. Because like I told you, it's in the middle of the Quran, it's something we read every single week has a very, very strong theme to it, it's telling us, okay, this is how you're going to make your progress. This is how you're going to build three Muslims that gather, I mean, part of the part of the earth, they build a small message, and they come together, and they're given the elements of how to build and every week they can read the surah. That reminds them of what it is they need to start obtaining. So they can build their society and build their community and build their civilization and strengthen themselves and come to a point where they're
capable. Because what is the point of a weak community? What good will with a divided and poor and ignorance aside you do? How are you going to convince anyone to be a Muslim? Is when you when they take a moment and say, okay, everything you're saying is mine, but show me show me some example of how that works. You're giving because when you bring us down, you don't bring up a few it does say okay to say that Allah Allah says, then, you know, you're bringing a comprehensive way of life to here, here's how to live, here's how you do it the right way. Like, oh, that's how we're supposed to do it. Okay, show me show me example of people who did it. So I can, you know, proceed. And then you
have nothing, then what are you? What are you doing? Really, if you have no examples, if you can't give them an example of any group of people, anywhere? That is impressive. Because if people are impressed by by by those who take a stand, those who have principles you're impressed by preferably with with principles, well, even if you hate these principles, you're respected. Like you know, this guy, you know, the statute he believes in I think what he believes isn't as garbage but he stands for it like I have to respect that he's willing to put his life on the on the line for it, he's willing to you know, just do everything in his power to support it. That's something that's
people are impressed by well
if you if you have a lot of money and impresses people, if you have knowledge in versus people, if you have power it impresses people if you have them all right, that's why you know so many of our sons and daughters don't really aren't that happy
because you're so happier and listen but your kids like
you know what my waistline What Why should I be so happy? You know, I don't see the Muslims don't have to dunk that well, right. So
Muslim don't seem to be scoring so many goals in the stuff that impressed people we're not doing it anymore. We're not they don't have it. So, a lot of a lot of Muslims and this is this is the case all through history, when i Although history has been very very simple.
people gravitate towards a stronger civilization has always had been when the Muslims are you know, it was cool to know Arabic. If you read if you if you were to study the you know the they call it the dark ages, but we call it the Dark Ages, it was considered a sign of of high intellect. If you could speak Arabic If you understood Arabic, that means you could read the books that you know none of us you have access to stuff just like today if you go back to towards countries and you have a Loja and the blue how you can speak English Oh my year you know you already have a head start in life because you can do so much. That's how it's always been. This is not something that is specific
to our civilization or others. It's the same thing.
So the conference will recap is wherever you are, make sure this is what you're doing. Make sure you are building this make sure but Okay, so let me so you want me to get the money, the wealth, the wealth, the knowledge and the power. No, no. First of all, you have to have the idea. First of all, you understand just what you stand for. If you don't have what you stand for, it's all it's all waste. It's all waste. It means nothing it brings nothing but corruption and pain and destroy
and destruction it just doesn't work out you have to have the idea first, Allah subhanaw taala has blessed us with the idea
that we were blessed with the proper idea we know what it is we stand for. Do we do we maybe we don't even know that anymore. But it's there you know, it's still here you can still you can still clarify it and still crystallize it if it's foggy or Lucio it's not clear and then when you have it then these are the four three elements you need with it twice you have the idea and you really just stand for it. You're willing to live for it you're willing to die for it if you're gonna put everything you've got for it Okay, these are the you need to bring some unity with wealth and knowledge and power and then and then people will come to
you want the example of it.
Look at the effectiveness
I said his dad was that Allah is the effective use of his data when he was in Medina.
No, this is no comparison. 13 years, 13 years, maybe 500 people, maybe when you study the books of Ceylon, the numbers
I'm giving you like I'm being generous, like 500 people will lie not even 513 years.
And then the last two years of Latino, the numbers skyrocket like the, the one hand or the graph looks like this. And then this goes up insanely. Why? Because at the end of his time, in Medina, the Prophet saw my son had accumulated everything. Now, this idea was clear to everyone and you had people who believed in it, and were willing to live and die for it. wealth was increasing knowledge, if you see people were, you were talking about people who are intellectuals of their time, they were not ignorant in comparison to everyone around them. And there was proper organization for definitely knows what we did. What were the opposing belief systems at the time. So polytheism was the biggest
one. And that's very hard to to narrow down, because polytheism has folly in its name, all these different types of so the trivial mentality that that exists amongst people, and the different idle that they actually worshipped, and all the different culture. So every tribe had its own cultural, you know, code that they lived by anyways. So it's very, very hard to kind of narrow it down. There are a number of fundamentals that Islam came against, clear, but besides those very difficult and but the thing is that that way of life had existed for over a millennium. People have been living like that for a very long time changing, it did not make much sense to any of them, because they
could track back their polysius ancestors going back to the clay six grandfather, like what you're gonna change it.
And they actually asked the prophets I said at a certain point, what's your lineagen? Mohammed countin, back from Hungary?
Well, your grandfather with the bluesy abilities, are you better than your own grandfather? And they thought that they actually won the argument when they did that. They thought, Oh, we got it. Now we have a question we can answer. Ask he can not answer this one. Who is better? You are your grandfather?
So what do you did some of those? I just didn't answer. He just didn't answer. Thank you. We're running after him. But no, you have to add to this.
I plead the fifth. And he did not. He did not answer the question, because the question is said improperly.
Right? It's not even the premise for it is not proper. The framework is not ready yet. Normal you can you can no more than people. And now you better than my grandfather. But right now I know more than he ever did. I know more doesn't make me better. knowledge does not make you better. Can you all agree to that knowledge does not make you a better person. It gives you potential to achieve more, maybe be better, but it doesn't make you better. Just because you know, more doesn't mean anything. I today have more access to Islamic knowledge than my body did. I know more things that he did, but I know better. Well, I'm not even good enough to be his shoe. But that doesn't mean I can't
no more than him. It's a different thing. It's a different things, not the same thing. Knowledge and quality of the human being aren't the same thing. We were supposed to know better shame on me and you if we don't know more than they did. That means we're not continuing their legacy, their legacy with a legacy of knowledge. We're supposed to know more, we're supposed to move forward. Now maybe we supplement it with quality. Maybe we don't do as well. Maybe because it's hard to be a pioneer in something that already started long time ago. We can't go back and stand on the jugular and stand by the profit. And that's done. Unless you have a
time machine to take me back. We have no access to that it's done. But I can no more and try but I'm not going to be better. I think that's an important distinction that we need to learn. And that's certainly going to be so important. Site learn. And we're gonna see the example of Musa we thought for a moment that the news type of knowledge is a different thing. Now you can always learn more, there's always people no more always go to them. Always learn. Increase your knowledge because you know that stuff helps you build Alright, so let's begin and just beautiful so some do like praise, hungry learning Praise be to Allah.
The one who descended upon his his servants of the the prophets of Allah sent Okita the book.
The sutra starts with reminding you of the value of the Quran. The first thing because the Quran is the book that brought this guidance forward. What is the book that brought was was sent by Allah subhanaw taala so that we could build our characters and build or come up communities and build something that is sustainable, that has high yields for itself, claiming it for everything. So Praise be to Allah, the One who sat down and descended this book, upon his service, whatever the agenda, who he was and did not have it or led to be within Jeju Island is a very, again a very fluid word in the Arabic language. It has different meanings depending on the sentence that
It exists within. So we I know Elijah means that the word to do with it means crookedness, or lack of, of clarity within. So in a way we judge means that his crook is going different. Different directions also means that his lack of clarity because once the road goes right, you can no longer see the end of this. Right. So you can't see the end of things anymore. So he also has an idea that is that he, he descended the book on his servant, Praise be to Him, and He did not have that be within it, any crookedness. He made sure that what you're going to learn from it is going to give you a straight path that is going to give you a straight vision of where you're going. We don't like
the ability to see where it is, we're headed.
That we don't like that maybe we lacked the ability to lift our heads. But we don't like the actual pocket.
Like the mat is description of the book. So when you said Hamdu lillahi. And at the ends of IBD, in Kitab, Al Kitab. I had no description description is for him at the verge description that there is no crookedness within it.
You don't treat people with two,
two ways. You have two phases, Guyana cubic era, right we don't
see ourselves in one eye with what with one, one ability to view and then people differently. You don't have standards for others and standards for ourselves. Our standards are one for everyone. We treat people the exact way we expect to be treated by them. And the way we treat them is the way that we will accept treatment from them. As simple as that that's when there's no awkwardness and it's very strange thinking about but you might have to means it has the concept of street street street visit and also the concept of value. So anything IDM is something that is valuable, has a lot of value in it. So pipe gamer I like this look at it from the concept of FPGA still be valuable
because supply is very rarely redundant. does not repeat.
The concept twice. So talked about them yet.
does not lack strictness. It is very straight. There's no crookedness within it. Not in the way that it presents its ideas nor in the result of those who practices ideas. Argument is very valuable. militano Oh yeah. Dr. eungella back censured Eden, which
in there is one basically the word though is warning and the word tip sheet is giving good news. Now there's a one word translation for investing in English but there's not one word for tips here. So leaving the Arabic century, Batson means difficulty shall be done extreme difficulty. So this book is very valuable, and it's very straight and it has no crookedness within it. And it is here to warn extreme difficulty Lilia essentially went towards extreme difficulty, Milla DUNU from him or from the faith itself. So the words that don't mean they don't It's a phrase in Arabic and it means from a certain party, or from a certain source coming from a certain source. So what does that mean? The
dune who? So that here is going him from him? Who's him? Is him here Allah subhanaw taala himself? Is him here the Quran itself? Or is him here the faith? We're not sure so when you go and you study, look at any time see if you will find that the scholars have talked about going back to different things, I believe well, no, I mean, the dude who a mentor to me less apparent from from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. I mean, this book has no crookedness within it, and extremely valuable and it is here to warn extreme difficulty from Allah subhanaw taala to come.
And the word Besson,
you think about it, does it?
Is it using the Quran as punishment?
If you go back, if you say the rest of the Quran, is it used for punishment? Often?
No as in punishment of the Day of Judgment, talking about punishment that will happen enough. Very rarely is the word that's ever used as a word to describe punishment in the hereafter, the word bets and set right and as all exists in the Quran talking about difficulties in this life, not in the Hereafter. So the word best whenever you see it means difficulty, it could easily mean difficulties that will happen up I'm referring to punishment that will follow up on those who refuse to believe in Him or to follow his word. But the word bet is more more commonly is referring to difficulties and dislike and this falls under the theme of this sort of much better. You see when you don't take
the way of the Quran, when you don't believe in Allah subhanaw taala accept His Word. The first difficulties you're going to face are the difficulties in this life. Forget about what's coming later. That's going to be its own problem. That can have its own
storage and we'll speak about that later. The first difficulty you end up facing when you say I don't want to take
The Quran I'm not taking the way of Allah subhanaw taala refuse the guidance in it is the difficulties that will face you in this life. And this is I think, I believe Allah Allah item is the thing that we don't seem to understand properly and we're not communicating properly to our own children.
At the Quran when you're taking, when you're accepting the rulings of Allah so proud that you're accepting the fundamental principles that exist, when you're living by it, the ease that you're getting is not an ease of your Mobium only it's an ease of this life as well. You are dodging the difficulties of this life first. I know maybe the rules that you are following don't seem to be so easy. But the result of following these seemingly not easy rules are going to bring you ease in this life first, meaning you will find ease here before you'll know and that's that's the importance of the wording that they use to warn you a person should either extreme difficulty here Mila don't do
that will come from him to find out what data
in this life the difficulty will be found in this life first. Well you wish to tell me and the other function of the Quran Well, best you have to give the good news meaning for the movements with the believers. Allah DNA Munna Saudi hottie the ones who do what it is Allah subhanaw taala has required them to do and I always explain it like that and I hope you can memorize the words Saudi had within that matter. Whenever you hear the word Yamuna they'll slowly add to that thing he does good deeds can I get get rid of that? Just delete it and then add something put something different? Yeah, I'm a little slightly had me they do. They do what it is Allah subhanaw taala created them to do in the
first place? Why did Allah subhanaw taala create you? Why are you here? What purpose do you serve? Everything that you're going to answer? I am here to do this. And this. Those are Salih hands. Some of those things will be rituals. Some of them will be actual acts of worship, like silence.
Others will be different things that include building, building societies and building communities, strengthening groups are there things will be like that. And those are also Saudi hat. In some cases, those Saudi hydro better than others Lolly hat, because they're needed more, because there's a stronger necessity for them. You will may not need your parent your CRM as much as they need other functions that you have not to give it to wasn't anymore. But I think that's something to think about. We mean, and Lavina Yama Lunasol you had and it will give the good news to the believers who will who will do the deeds at a loss account I created them to do in the first place. And not only
that, they have a waiting for them a perfected
reward. And the word hasn't
come from the concept of design, which is excellence or perfection or something. So I don't have that means a reward that has been perfected, that has the concept of excellence with a good reward. I know that you may find some translation to say good luck hasn't means good maybe in the common language of Arabs, Arabs today we'll just say maybe there's something good
the actual meaning of the mean good but go back to the linguistics and what it means no
person Public means something that has excellence that has that has inner beauty and that I don't ask them to do or find within it or they were what is awaiting them is perfected and beautiful. Award math you see in a fee about Abba they will stay within that new word for eternity much they would enter something or stick with something so they will stay with it there'll be stuck with this perfected reward EBITDA for all eternity forever and
we've received precisely
or you're lazy enough or deaf order more than one other
man the heme in new Murali.
Get scared imagine the hole in him
just for the logo, whatever. Now he or you said we're doing the right if you look at it, and number two, what the beginning of it by gamma Leone's you're already given a warning. So why would he give a second warning? A second warning is only needed or established in the sutra, twice in a row if the second one is more specific or has a specific reason. So what is specific reason for the second one because the first one is quite general, to warn those to warn of severe difficulty if anyone who decides this is not something I'm going to accept anyone who decided that did not accept the strictness of the Quran.
All you have to Quran and the fact that Allah Subhanallah descended this book upon his servants, then he will find extreme difficulty. And then when you want the Lord specifically toward a levy in upon you the ones who said it to her the love will, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has chosen a son for himself or has a son, or has a child does not necessarily mean son. It means any child whether, regardless of of gender.
Why that specifically? Well, it's a symbol, it's Oh, and always pay attention to certain symbolism that exists in the Quran. When Allah subhanaw taala talks about that he's not just talking about the fact that they said, Oh, he has a child, that he's offended somehow by that, no, it's a way of thought it's it's a mentality that comes with it. When you say Allah subhanaw taala has a child, what you're saying, really, is that he is less God than he actually is. And he's more human. You're accepting or you're suggesting that just like you and I, he has whims, yes desires. He has he is created from substances that can mate with other substances, and they create something that is
similar to it. So the whole mentality. So when someone says Allah Subhan, Allah child,
they're actually thing is a whole different thing. Like the concept abstractly is not the issue. The issue for Christians and for Jews and for other faiths that see
deities in that form is the actual idea behind it. See, if you say that God is capable or God will recreate or record reproduce, then you are drawing parallels or extreme parallels from the DI D from God, to the human being. Now we reproduce and that is not something that is an extra, something that we take pride in, we enjoy it, but it's not amount of it's not a mystery, either. We can
observe it happening. Yes. Yes. So that removes the history of it. It's one of the reasons our production is the fact that we die. We don't exist forever. Another reason is that we are weak. And we have prior we require in our lives, more power, and those to stand by us. The concept of reproduction coming within life itself and evolving as a part of this whole way of existence is not something that is superior, rather, it comes from a need. So when you say that God has a child, you're referring to the DI D himself to being something more similar to
what innocence sense of the matter, you're also saying that God Himself can be created, or will have a beginning, you see when you say that is if God has a son, or as a child, and what is that child? Is that child a god as well? Or it is not? If it is? And you say, Yes, well, then that God is just existed today, meaning that God that you're talking about is something is a God that is contained within space and contained within time because the concept of time concept of time.
Because subjected to it and is a part of it. So when they focus on the love of winter, this is not just the fact that it's not that God is offended, but he hasn't been done. Just by the word know, this whole mentality. That's a problem, your view, your vision, your understand your comprehension of God is totally off. You don't understand No, having a child having a kid is bringing God from being God, something similar to human. And that's something company for us, we're not happy with what we've got. This is the bottom line as humans, we're just not happy with what we got. We want superpowers. That's why we enjoy the X Men and you know, everything Superman and W enjoy because we
want to be more we're not happy with the fact that we can see we can listen, we can think and comprehend we can these these abilities we've got bored with you want more, we want to fly, we want to be able to have X ray vision, we want to be able to punch something and you know, send it to the other part of the galaxy you want. We don't we're not happy with it. We are. So either we try to strengthen ourselves. And we've tried that for many, many, many, many, many, many centuries. And we haven't gotten that far so far is as good as we get. We can get into a plane and get into a car. But we haven't been able to do anything about our actual existence. We're just the same way we were, you
know, 1000s 1000s of years ago as far as our actual abilities as human beings. So you can also do it you also bring God right? If I can't beat you or maybe get you to fall down that way. You know, my, my, my mediocracy won't be as clear specifically if you don't make it what you were going to make it
that scene where you're going to get on Davina. To warn those will say a loss of others chosen a child or as a child.
What does that mean? Oh, it's a whole mentality. As most things we don't accept Allah subhanaw taala created time and space he is beyond is treated life in the form that it is for us to try and bring God's unknown dollar ring Allah and draw parallels to our own lives and making more similar to us and putting them under the laws that we are that govern us and govern, govern our existence is just another attempt from the human being, to be more gotten
to be more godlike than he actually is. And to refuse the status of certainty that we have or service to God that we actually have
which is, you know, all the beauty of being a Muslim is submission and accepting that we're servants to God to Allah only serve Allah subhanaw properly, all the perks of being the servant to the great,
great exists, He will strengthen you He will offering you will give you everything but you have to accept that He is Allah subhanaw taala. And you can't keep on trying to throw labels make it more sensible to do this.
No, no, no, no, not at all. Allah He almost every faith, I have yet to come by a faith that at one part during the
development, evolution did not suggest that God had a child on every single frame going from start from Japan.
What's the historically you'll find all everything at one part time or the other has either decided that God had reproduced or that he had SSL or those many of them. So it's one of those things. So in the Quran, it kind of looks at polytheism. And the concept of God having children at the same way, because we had the same idea.
It means theme. But if you go back into history, but that wasn't the case, they had they had seen one, a number of different points, because it's not. When you say mainstream, that doesn't work, because what there's no mainstream Judaism, they're actually a very small group. And there's over 40 different subgroups within them. So there's no mainstream Judaism, like there's actually at least 40 different subgroups within within there. So very different for different sects that exists within Judaism. And the number of Jews around the world is actually not that high, up to 20 million, maybe today that may have even probably been bigger, the numbers. So the number of people, the number of
groups that I know, yes, there are groups that are Unitarians, just like the Christians, within Christianity did argue materials, I mean, those who don't believe that Islam was ever anything more than a prophet or a message.
And they stick to that. So there are but but I'm talking about most things most most faiths around the world have had at one point or another within their development as a faith, those who have claimed the sun, and Muslims are not an exception to that rule within within Islam, except for my answer, but because of the clarity of who Allah subhanaw taala is within Islam, it was quickly to be disowned, and moved out of the face. So they're no longer part of your karmic
group of people. Because once you say, that, mentality, is how you view us out to get this. Have you ever met a dude that said
no to Jews today is something more historic. So you have to go study that to say that more history here.
The the there are, there is a dar two seconds today that do believe in the fact that God has a either son, I don't use the name per se, but you have other names. Again, when it comes to studying Judaism, there's a lot of different sexes. It's very hard to know who you're talking to, because we don't really know maybe, maybe do that at different times. Talk about the different divisions and, and types of beliefs within that. I met a Jewish fellow who explained it to me from his point of view, he called himself a Messianic Jew. Yes. Who believe that Jesus was there before God. Yes, yes.
So there's a lot of different it's way more complicated than then we'd be unfortunately due to other faiths what we don't like them doing to us. And there's maybe another example of me treating you want to be treated a certain way. Well, don't do the what you don't want people doing to you. You don't like you know, non Muslims looking at every Muslim as being okay, this is everything and then you're stuck with a bunch of crazy people, you know, turning heads off and doing you don't want to be okay. Well don't do the same thing to a lot of other faiths. Because within Judaism within Christianity, there's a lot of different sects and different sects have different ideas, different
theologies, different Creed's, and they practice differently. And we just maybe need to educate them a bit more on on issues like that. And not just the two basic, not just the Abrahamic faiths, even when it comes to Hinduism and Buddhism and other faiths that, you know, exist within China and Japan. We don't even know the names properly. I'm not even sure I know how to pronounce the problems I don't. But I know you can read about what it is that they have. And the more we learn, the more capable we are to actually communicate properly. But I'll tell you this, that almost every faith has had its development groups of people who have looked at God within dynamite. And it's, I think, can
always feel that it's a movement of the human race, just wanting to be more are trying to think God closer, trying to find some way to be, he is he's Allah. He is beyond anything you can find them is beyond your ability to comprehend. He does not he is not governed by the same laws that govern our own existence. Accepting that is the biggest part of being a Muslim, except Allah Santos beyond that, he is beyond and if he is not, to be honest, there's no point that you are worshipping him at all. If you're going to say that the God you're worshipping is you know,
Closer command, and then we're talking about he has worldly winds and worldly desires and worldly
attributes, then why are you doing why are you worshiping him? I'm always I got this question. And I'll tell you, I'll tell you something to think about just take this as some food. And we talked about Allah subhanaw taala. Knowing all right, and that sometimes people struggle with that. I don't know, I've talked about this before, a number of times, you're talking about partner or destiny, or the issue of Allah subhanaw taala.
And knowing everything that happened, and it's going to happen, and people have difficulty dealing with it for what it wants to do, he hasn't made me do it. Because we still think Allah knows things and we know it. We know things are gonna happen based on repetition. And based on previous programming, that's how we know what's going to happen in the future. That's not how it is not that knows how it's going to happen in the future. He has a different p&l Because he is god he did you still have a choice, your freedom of choice, and you notice, but here's the question, would you worship a gun? Didn't? Would you worship God? If he didn't? Think about it? If he doesn't know
what's going to happen? That even if the smallest percentage,
there's still some percentage there that he could be surprised. Right? What's happening next, and he you could surprise him, it didn't surprise him, then you just may beat him.
It's as simple as that the logic that we have is very simple, if I can surprise you, and there's a small percentage that I may be able to beat you because you know his happiness. Would you worship a God that could be didn't find you knew, we were insisting on existence. We don't even contribute to our own existence, your contribution to your assignment existence is ridiculous. There's nothing we don't do much like it's very simple. So how is it that so when it talks about a loss and looks at it from an intelligent, understanding who the guy to do Subhanallah with Allah, and Allah, that talks about those who don't accept it as symbol, it doesn't feel like slay this for 10 minutes or 15
minutes. It doesn't do that every time. He just gives a symbol. It talks about those who have shortcut associated with him, meaning believing there's more than one God again, that destroys the whole concept of God all over, or saying that God has children destroy the concept of God again. So he talks about what you can do is here as well, to warn those, that Allah has children or understand God in a way that takes away who he is, and takes away your ability to believe in them properly and actually offer your life for him in the terms of living now, I have to that makes it a bit more clear. So we've spent talking about that, forgive me when Merlin became an admin, but those who say
alive children are leaving them or have any, they have no knowledge of this. Meaning they don't base this on knowledge, murder can be even and they have no knowledge of this whatsoever. You have no way to prove this at all. Whenever you have noted their ancestors, or their forefathers had no way to do this is just a foreign
it's a foreign idea that came from the need of human beings to be more or to feel that they couldn't be more than that. But they actually were cowboy.
Cowboy rock to me it is great. Not in a good way though. I mean, this is a big deal. Coupled with Kenny method, this word that they're saying when they say he has children or there is he has associates or any anything they say to try and break down Allah or to bring down God from being God to being something much simpler than God. But then having a couple of attending with him this is a great great word in a bad way is a word of severe consequences it's very similar to what Allah subhanaw taala talks us through the nor about when people spoke of Isha
you think what you're speaking you're speaking of Irish in that way, and you're seeing things with that said owner who hate you they think it's simple, but who ended Allah here? I'll leave but it's a great deal and allow us
to do something you don't know whether you're thinking what a human being will say, Oh God Himself, what do you how do you know this? Based on what based on what are you bringing God down and trying to make him similar to you as a person or making yourself similar to him? Like I said, either you tried to be stronger or make them weaker. Either way you get you close the gap a bit more and you feel better. Khabarovsk any method that will demystify Him. The word that they are saying that is coming who coming out for him from their mouth, from their mouths
of great have a great deal the words that are coming out of their mouths couple of kilometers in your pool. Can you tell me about all you're saying are lies? You're saying nothing but lies everything they say about Allah subhanaw taala that does not come from the Quran that is not explaining the nature of who he is to Pano to others it might be such
is the introduction a couple of days of introduction of to
God there's another part that introduction is known for we have to give a sweet good
about the knapsack guy.
I mean, we haven't had the SF
man and we seen it and in
the novel Who who are you who
they have funny than us
the beginning of it, we'll, we'll establish a number of ideas before it goes into the stories that we'll talk about how we build, how we build communities, how we build societies, how we start civilizations, what is it that we need before it goes into that before it starts talking about it will establish a number of ideas introduction, it was established the the way of life or the guidance that the Quran brings, and it talks about the type of guidance before it has, it will establish the nature of
Scottish what to do.
Total stablish for us, the fact that the Quran brings forward a straight and valuable way of life, he will talk about the nature of Allah subhanaw taala. They'll talk about this this introduction, what it is that we need to do, and what the mission is. It was the last couple of years, but I like it that
means for you to attempt to kill yourself
trying to actually find your own way. But Allah is doing to the prophets. Awesome. So is it your hummingbird that you're going to try to end your own life SFO. The word SFO means
the reason being that you are sorry, or sad that someone made a mistake. So let me give you this. Explain this. If you have a son, and your son beaks a number of different mistakes, if you're trying to make it very clear to your son or your daughter,
that what you're doing is wrong. And you can do it better. You shouldn't be doing it better. You try and do everything you can but they don't want to want to listen so what are you going to do for that look,
but you're going to you're going to kill yourself and sorrow you're going to kill yourself and depression and being unhappy and just completely unfulfilled because of the fact no, you do yourself into your training this class is tied up the prophets I send them he wanted the people of Christ to believe so badly that he would get very, very upset when they wouldn't listen, extremely upset. And the Quran will come in one place in another place and superficial Allah than the cupboard under second level, meaning that you're going to you're going to starve yourself to death you're gonna work yourself to death record to do 100 Allah Allah Coburg
written me 30 Me continuously walking behind the following trying to get them to come Muslims, they walk away, and you're either you're just following them trying to get them back.
Because they will not believe in this way of life, or in what it is that we have spent. Hadith means this way. The word Hadith means sayings, actions and thoughts. So this way of SFR instead sorrow over them, is that what you're going to do? No, don't do that you're also
as important as it is for us to do Dawa and to teach but don't do that much. Don't. Don't compromise your own integrity as a person. Don't compromise your own happiness. And don't try to involve yourself in something that you don't have the ability to involve yourself. You can control what people want to do, you can control what we want to do
your best and then
you can do what we can only do so much at the end you can only do so much now to explain that point to see the following hitting that John
Cena we have made and put upon this verse, everything that is on Xena, adornments and the way the documents mean everything that's there, the happiness, the sorrow, the pain, the food, the drink, the orientations, the feelings, experiences, everything that is what Earth isn't everything on Earth, and everything that you experience on Earth. We have made it zener adornments just a part of a planet zenith in the NWO so that we can test them a yoga Ramana which of them will behave the best passing I'm gonna have the best or more protected or more excellent deeds, excellent actions because all it is all this is, is just an Earth. A lot of dormant sites, they could have not been there
easily. They've just been another planet just circling deadly lifelessly around. But there's some things on here.
Adventures for all of us, almost pantile is doing Oh, he's doing some final without just saying are you how you
behave? What we have live we're going to choose which of us is going to have the most perfected and the best way of
As an actor, we're in
LA and indeed we will make everything that is honored right now all the dormers, you see Saeed and Toulouse.
Jewelers mean empty slide means something that has something on it and that will
mean it will all be destroyed. So Eden, Joseph did an empty birth. So Joe was mean is that the site is empty, after being full. So, look at the earth today, everything on it enormous that you can I can go through our experiences. And Allah subhanaw taala will judge us based on who does the best deeds, what's the most effective actions. And then after that this earth was once full,
be content and empty, wasn't alive.
And as simple as it began, it's as simple as it all started.
So don't kind of sit do not destroy your own existence or compromise your happiness. Don't compromise your ability to live properly, function within your life, do your part, do your part. And then let things happen the way they're going to happen. And let people make the choices they're going to make as long as you understand your point, this is the introduction of the Revenant began the story
next week, but introduction had a couple of points. And praise Allah subhanaw taala for the glorious book that we have with it, that we that they sent to us. And we have the sort of the book that writes a very clear, non crooked way of life. Abroad good news to those who do good abroad. warning to those who didn't give us a nature of who Allah subhanaw taala isn't as stated clearly, they told us that our point here is to do Dawa. But to a certain extent and then don't go beyond his understanding of that the end of the day, this is the this is the deal is this life is what you will have is the power to others. And then just like it all began to roll and this is the introduction of
the gap. And you will see, I will make the connections of that introduction to all the stories in the sutra as we go along. And you will see that everything in the introduction was connected to a point that exists within the sutra that is very much under the theme or the umbrella of that concept that's telling us how to build is how we build this how we make the progress is how you start today with someone with no ideas with very little money with no knowledge, right? It works for the youth. Simple ideas, not too much wealth, not much knowledge, not too much power. When I move out of that What a move towards something that is much better, much bigger, much more beneficial than you take
these steps properly. I hope that this was beneficial my show and we will continue next Sunday.
