under the Help gotta be a law must
Today inshallah we will conclude in gaff we just have four left of it shall at the end, when we finished reciting them I will point out a number of issues in the summary at the end that that are attached to the sutra itself to attach to the seat and the theme of the sutra meaning Why is the end of the sutra why we're talking about certain issues, I will kind of explain that, at the end of
at the end of this once we're done Inshallah, so we read up to a number one out of the six, but what was what was the idea there, right.
This sort of meat a very quick transition from talking about dual coordination.
This man who, for us is the example of a community that obtained proper ideology, wealth, and knowledge and then all three together turned into power that he possessed and that he used in the way Allah subhanaw taala wanted him to use it which was to spread player which is to see what people needed and offer them whatever it is that they were needed, we got to see the local name deal with different people who lacked all three of those elements and deal with people who were corrupt to their core as well. And there was a lot to learn within those stories. And then quickly right in the middle of the I basically there's this transition transition goes from that to your meal pm or
whenever you feel sorry for them and now home gym and we get this snapshot of your makishima as the horn has been blown into, that people are being gathered all at once, and then judging them as being paraded in front of in front of caffeine to see
but then the store defines for you the word caffeine rattled, Johanna may or may even caffeine Alba and be paraded Jahannam as a presentation for the caffeine, which caffeine however, the word caffeine is a very wide spectrum word we can be used for different things. There are different levels of gopher it's not all the same just like there's different levels of neufeldt.
Hypocrisy is not all one level. So some people are hypocrites to the point where the Jani they hate Islam with the inside, they're working towards destroying it. That's the That's the ultimate level of hypocrisy. And then there's just those who who lie when they speak, will say something and then do something a bit different like something nothing and a lot of a lot of negative levels in between and call for is something similar as well. Just believing in Allah subhanho wa Taala disbelieving in his existence, right? And the fact that he created that He is Lord is the Lord and
and deity that is the ultimate level of cover. But there are much smaller levels of cover, starting with just maybe not being thankful to what you were given. Right just just maybe start just the simplest of just not not being thankful. I never would have been Shackleton as Eden the Coleman if you are thankful and you show gratitude that I will increase you whether in kefir tomb. In other Villa she didn't if you refuse to do so. And if you do go for what is Coover Why is Cooper the opposite of sugar? Yes. And in the context of this era, when he studies with the Brahim, when you go through the word confirm, you know what you're thinking about. Now, you think it's not talking
theology here is talking the lack of gratitude. So the word cover is always the opposite of the good attribute of the sewer that is being recited, that makes sense, it's always the opposite. Sometimes it is clearly defined like here, and sometimes it is not clearly defined, you have to see it through the context of the sewer that you're studying. For example, here, it was clearly defined a Latina Canada, you know, the the ball and decree vocabulary is totally your own SMR those who there was a cover over their eyes, and they could not hear even if they tried, they couldn't hear why because they were in a state of indifference. That was they were so down far down that road that they
couldn't hear it was just something in the background. You remember being like that, as a teenager, as a child. Remember your father telling you to do this and do this. You never listened. And now you're wondering, why did they listen to him when he told me to do something that I know that he was so helpful, it was just us that was a state you're in the point of it. Just a time of indifference you couldn't hear? It was like you couldn't see you couldn't hear. And I know that I went through that I know everyone yawn if you just hear if they go back into their earlier years, they can identify a time where it was like it was like they couldn't see what was right in front of them. And
he couldn't hear what was being told to them clearly. Subhanallah it's just everyone's I mean, they go through different statuses that can't be read, or those are in a continuous state of graffia of indifference and oblivious not being able to see the truth or hear the truth.
That goes on to say Did they think of as the Bolivian a couple,
talking to a burden and doing the earlier did they think that the true servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala would actually find alliances in any someone anyone else but Allah subhanho wa Taala they actually think that the movements would show alliances or allegiance with anyone else but Allah and doing the Olia know in Johanna Malika Phyllida
will, indeed the lives of the loft where they will find themselves destined to spend the rest of their time for the caffeine will will be genuineness, Allah subhanaw taala Salam, and then the question the million dollar question, well, Helena bucum Block Serena Carmela, would you like to know, would you like me to tell you about those who are who are at this most severe point of loss when it comes to their actions and their deeds, those who will do a lot, however, it's a big loss for them, meaning they will not be rewarded for any of it, they will not be getting paid back for any of it. And the venum Melissa, you whom Phil highlighted dunya those who their their path that
they are walking in the Enlightenment have a goal they're walking working towards something however they've gone astray, there will be to a goal that is not proper, it's not the one that you're supposed to be working towards. You're not moving in the right direction here for everyone I know you're gonna and they think that they're doing the right thing. They think that they're walking down the right baton is a scary idea. And it's supposed to and it's supposed to be
whether it can live in a cafe or will be it will be in Molokai II, D those are the ones who did cover in the signs of Allah or in the in the verses that Allah sent to Molokai and in meeting Allah, the hydroflux Imam. And thus, their deeds were rendered worthless, followed up with a homeopathy wasn't it and were given no rates on the Day of Judgment. All it takes is a bit of indifference. All it takes is a bit of lack of sincerity, a lack of motivation, not knowing why you're doing something, or for whom whom are your serve, whom are you serving, when you're doing whatever it is that you are doing, to make the deed that you do? Worthless.
These are, Serena, these are the ones who are going to feel that they lost the most your milk when it comes to their actions, because they did not make sure that these acts is a very, very important, at the end of social capital, I can't imagine a more important message for us to take from sort of the Gulf. Why because if you read it properly, if you understood the message, then you'll be motivated at the end of it. Hopefully, it's motivated, motivating, you read it on the on the morning of Joomla. So that by the time you come to start to Joomla, you're motivated to do work. And then the Imam gives you the COVID gives you what is it that you want. And then you walk out even more
motivated, to start doing what you need to do. That's the whole point is the concept that exists. Reasonable, Kev, you're thinking about Yanni, you're reading the story of alcohol, you're seeing how just a few people with a strong idea with a proper theology with the proper ideology with the proper value set of values and plan, change the destiny of a whole have a complete kingdom forever and ever. And you see that he did that for them. And Moroccan women at algebra, they were not
an exception to the rule for him subpoena without he did it for them. And he'll do it for you as well. And you know that if I just if I just come up with a set of values and work towards something, I can tell you that you read the story of hydrogen, methane, and the two men and the two orchards. And you'll see that if you understand wealth properly, and you use it for the right reasons, and your perspective regarding wealth is right, then you can use it for a lot of failure, and only good will come from it. And then you read the story of Musa al Assad. And you see the importance of practical and theoretical knowledge coming together and bringing life for societies. And then you
read the Cronin story. And you're and you're invigorated to hear that this is what we could be. This is what we were destined to become as Muslims, if we couldn't be we could become like the economy. This is the whole point. We like him do what he did. And you feel like yesterday, and I can do all of it. So what happens is you're motivated to do something you want to make a difference. So this is at the end, you know, holds up this, you know, big warning. When people come back, Serena, how can I tell you about the ones who will do a lot and lose a lot. Make sure that you do all these things, you do it for the right reason. Make sure when you make the decision that I'm going to do all of
this yada, I'm going to start putting together all these elements in myself as an individual and tried to bring them to my community and my society so that we can be something that is similar to the to the paradigm that you put in the story of Dale Carnegie, you're going to do we're going to start like a handicap. We're going to come up with the values we're going to work on the world we're gonna work on the knowledge, we're going to bring the power to our Ummah,
in any form and all the forms that we can make sure you know why you're doing it. Make sure you don't lose the sight of whom you're serving. It is for Allah subhana wa Tada only know what no one else. You shouldn't be thinking of anyone else here. You shouldn't be trying to please anyone else. You should not be indifferent to the fact that he is the one and only goal for everything that you do. It is following the Command of Allah subhanho wa Taala or else studying I'm also those who do a lot and lose a lot your Malkia and it's not really hurts him diet is when he says we're gonna mess up guna and they think they're doing the right thing. And they think they're doing it right and then
you're like, I hope I hope I'm not one of them. I hope I'm not I hope I'm not one of them. I think I'm doing the right
But I'm actually not doing the right thing. And you're welcome to come and find that all my actions aren't accepted. How do I save myself? Continuously, revise continuously. Look at the motivation behind your actions. Just do the knee every time, strengthen the intention, observe your behaviors, look at the status of your heart and make sure that you're thinking in the right in the right in the right way. And you're doing things for the right purpose, and inshallah you'll be doing, it'll be working on but once you just walk down the road, you're not thinking about exactly how many you claim to have a goal but you're just walking. Is it love indifference in that walk, meaning you're
not? You're not You're not meeting milestones, you're not stopping and revising? Isn't that the whole point of Attica? Oh, there's gonna be every time there was a change, they retreated. It wasn't they didn't went away. It wasn't the
90 they didn't turn their backs or run, they retreated. A retreat is important. You take a step back and think again, let's reevaluate the situation. All successful companies do it right here evaluate where they want to every five years, every evaluation to see where we are, are we meeting our goals? Are we still not walking down the same road? Do we know where we're going? Or are we just doing it's easy to get distracted? It's very easy.
That he could just go home, Johanna will be maca photo, these people will find on either the word to be genuine, or the compensation will be genuine because of their Cofer, of course go for all in the definition that existed in the ayat, those who are indifferent, those who were not focused, being comfortable with it. Also the Who's the one they treated? The site, the verses of Allah and the the words of their prophets who XUA with mockery with ridicule. They didn't take it seriously. Because it will also mean it didn't take something seriously. Take it lightly. It's just just guidelines. Just just listening. Yeah, you don't take we have this is this is the norm today regarding faith is
don't take it too seriously. And even parents will tell you not to be Muslim. Just don't take please don't take it too. Don't. Don't get too involved. How do you get it? What? Why do you buy too involved? Is there any? Is there ever a level of involvement that is too involved in the pleasure of Allah? subhanaw taala and pleasing Allah doing what he wants? How does that work? I understand it, you're scared of again, extremism? And I understand that part. But how am I to involve this good? Here? Yeah, most of them are not very religious. Yeah. So that puzzles me a lot. And that that description, to me doesn't exist. It doesn't exist it that is not a thing. That doesn't, I don't
know that basically a recipe that doesn't make anything that's edible. And it's not, it's not doesn't exist. Either you're Muslim, or you're not you make up that decision, you can say that I'm sinful, you can say that I'm, you know, I like, that's fine. We all do. We're all we all laugh, we all, you know, fall back, we all fall short, we don't do as much as we want to do, we can be better, we want to improve ourselves. That's fine. That is the norm of every human being sitting here. Now, no one here in the world. claims to have reached the pinnacle of iman are the closest to Allah SubhanAllah. It's impossible. However, to say I'm muslim, I'm not too religious. I don't know what
you mean. Especially if you're not regretful.
Especially if you let go. And that's, that's what I've chosen. I've chosen to be this but not to.
You can say I'm muslim. I'm not too religious. Unfortunately, like, I'm still suffering, I'm trying to become better. But I'm not. It's not working. So vinyl was a problem. Definitely it was. You have to all fear for that. Because you may think, oh, but I'm not like that I take it seriously. Well maybe take it take another look reevaluate because you may, you may be looking at people saying these people don't take it seriously. Maybe there's someone else looking at using you don't take it too seriously. You don't know, take a look, again, reevaluate one of the important lessons because this idea came at the end of a sutra that's full of action that is full of things to do get up move,
either do what God did do us homogeneity and do what moves alleys and to do with, connect, go find something to do find your calling and start working, find what you like and start filling it filling the gap. See what you need to do. Just keep in mind that you could do there's a possibility that you do a lot and lose a lot if you don't do it for the right reason. So that had to be there, then this would have to remind all of us to keep us to keep the the alert
signal flashing in our in our minds that you never lose sight of where you're going. So we start inshallah with the final part of pseudocode. That was the just kind of a quickly a summary of the last few if you
are there for attention or something some some people that they have a good intuition for their actions.
It could mean that as well. Well, what does it take for an action to be accepted? In order for something to be accepted? You need to need two things. You need the intention to be proper, and you need to add the action to be proper. Do things have to work out the intention has to be for the sake of Allah and then you have to do what he actually wants you to do. You can do whatever you want to do it
intention of pleasing Allah, but I'm pretty nice if I have luck out, it's
not going to work. But why you had the intention? And you know, you didn't play it, it's the more you get more, right? No, not only do I have to do it for the right reason, I have to do it properly as well. I think that the if you're talking more here about the both the intention, because that part, I'm not gonna say it was left out in the Sunnah. But that part was not the emphasis of sutra curve. So the guy was talking about what you actually need to do, what the things you need to have, and how are you going to get them to remember, after each story, there was commentary, there was like 1525, sometimes that commented on the importance of the idea was inserted,
or the importance of wealth after the after, and there was always commentary telling you how you can fix your way. So yes, the meaning could be both ways. Definitely. Yes.
That means that they have good intentions, but maybe their words are not strong. Could be either way. Could be the other way as well. It could be that they're doing it right. They have the bad intention, or they have a good intention, but they're doing it wrong. Could be either way. For low item, we don't know for sure. Like it's not, again, it's open for basically, interpretation in terms of you seeing it that way. But something is missing. Something is missing. Well, yes, I'm gonna say no. So now
for you to think that you're doing the right thing doesn't always mean that you have the right intention. It doesn't always mean that actually, actually 99% of time it doesn't. We're very good at people as people to, to mask what we think even to ourselves. It's a very, it's a very subtle thing, but we do it, we do it often. Meaning the real reason for what you're doing is very self serving. However, you will convince not only those around you but yourself that you're not doing it for that self serving reason. You're doing it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And then you walk with it, right? And then you just you're in denial of your actual intention. And as people we're really
good at doing that. We do it very, very often, very, very often. But it takes true true sincerity, and and a true reevaluating moment for you to find that out to dig deep and find Yeah, no, I'm doing this for me. Not doing this for him. Subhanallah with that I have I'm trying to get somewhere. I'm trying to do something. And then it's more common than you think. Like it's very, it's actually probably one of the most common things that that we have, sir. You're supposed to be selfish, but you're not supposed to be selfish in this dunya it wasn't me selfish for the asker I'm supposed to be trying to make it difficult those before all of you. Hopefully you'll come with me we'll do it
together. But I'm trying to make it that's what I'm trying to do. I'm not going to accept John them so that you can go to her don't know that's not gonna work. That's that's selflessness that His word. That's it. That's not him. Even a Father and His Son. Dope. He'll help you but he's gonna go to Jana. At the end of the day, if you're gonna stand in his way he's gonna go there anyway. Now he'll take you with him if you want to go right you know he'll he wants to take you but if you're gonna stand in his way, Nope, you're gonna make it first. It's selfishness. It's totally fine. But sometimes we mask selflessness with selfishness or the opposite, we mask our selfishness or
selflessness even though it's not really true. And that takes of course, that's multilayered, you have to be very aware of yourself to kind of take a look and make sure you know what you're doing. I'll give you a quick story I just kind of emphasize that before we move on. Before the battle of boyhood there was a father and a son that both wanted to go for the for the battle but they couldn't go together one of them had to go one of them had to stay behind so why because they had nine sisters like the father had nine daughters and there was only two men in the family so they can't all both go in and leave them because they didn't didn't have enough to provide for them it was
Abdullah having me I'm gonna head on and jabber ibn Abdullah jameelah both known as Sahaba and kind of on their own so I'm gonna love him and jabber they fought over it like it started by okay it's okay that that all goes you can stay and it was like no don't fight it sorry just like that and then like no I'm going No no no you're not I'm going in then they started to disagree. So they said All right. Let's do it. Let's do it based on Yanni just listen to him.
Flip a coin flip the coin and Abdullah have an island Hello, I'm got it. Right and jab, jab,
start to cry a good and go shop Allah had an omelet came to his son mahiya Boonie Locanda trial janela Well, I was anything but Jana, my son, I would have put you in front of myself, but it's genuine. I'm sorry, I have to have to get up to go it's just not like anything else that you would be in front of me. But as Jen I'm sorry, he left and he died. And he's Christian or the law and he was a murderer. And the job is solved even more and the prophets key Oh, let me even cry for a minute from Isaiah Malayaka illustre now you had delassalle Africa lemma hula neither melodica Captain carrying him into the sky until he came to a place where Allah subhana spoke to him
MacArthur min Allah yeah Abdi please tell me what you like my servant I will give it to you but God I didn't Dr. abelia open piece of music send me back again. I want to do this again. I want to go and fight for your for your sake and die again because I'm a heavy fella. When you have come to me like I love your job and I
This one I don't do I made the I don't send them back to life again but I'm in for quite a bit of them and near of mine he told me something else you want he said please do not tell them what I'm in right now tell them the joys that I'm in and I saw earlier mine when I'd asked him in the living in a particular visa module revealed to the Prophet Celeste only recited them to Joe but this is what he told him your job but in not Allah can you call him when you call him a nurse job in Africa lemme who Kiefer Han all people who speak to Allah they speak and there's a barrier except your father. He spoke to him openly yo jabber and jabber stop crying
What What is there to cry? You left him nine Asus is to take care of but still be a lifeline for Allah who lived a long life of prosperity? Yes.
Exactly. You start cleansing 90 superficially, and then you find Oh, well, there's too few layers to this. So you cleanse a bit more. And then you look in, oh my gosh, there's even more layers. And the more you go, the deep ends and endless depth, it's endless. It's endless never ends. The more deep the deeper you go, the more you'll find, you have to continuously cleanse all these depths and keep them keep the tension for Allah subhanaw taala The idea is that you have to be aware of this because sort of kind of is a sort of
it's, it's a building sewer. It's like a building brick within our society tells you what to do. It gives you the elements you don't if you understood the story, you are not confused on what is missing. You know, the focus has to be the values the principles it has to be having a filter has to be having enough knowledge and expertise and skills and it has to be organized so it's turns into power you don't longer need anyone else to tell you anything else is very clear. It will motivate you to work however if you have the wrong intention when you're working and then nothing happens or you end up you'll milk and we've done a lot but you're not going to get rewarded at all. So what's
the point data set at Monticello all of us County we do a profit Okay, let's start with the finish the sorta chunk end up not finishing it tonight, I will be learning to show you more on your body
Smilla him walking
needle Solly her deacon at home Jen to fill those in hula?
Holly, Dina fee, the homeowner and her
always in the Quran, whenever there is a talk about those who are falling in one direction, there's always going to be some recognition of the people going in the opposite direction almost all the time. There are very few exceptions to that rule in the Quran. And whenever there's an exception, it's usually for very good reason. So after the Quran talked about caffeine in a number of areas, starting from 100, up to six, eight in a row, talking about what the Cooper is, what it can lead to what it causes and the problems behind it and what you should be aware of as you're going through this. It talks about the other side. And it's very simple the other day, it's very straightforward.
Indeed those who believe well, I'm sorry, I didn't do the deeds that Allah subhanaw taala created them to do a Saudi Hydra all the deeds that Allah subhanaw taala requires you to do as a person in life. This is not a specific Yeah, I need to follow see if I can hedge as important as those deeds are as highly ranked as they are in Islam. No one. Yeah, I mean, no one with a straight mind will. I need a little any of those, but they're not the only things and there's a lot, there's a lot more to it than just doing the rituals, living your life for the sake of Allah as I middle saw you doing what you were created to do. He created you He gave you destined you for something, you need to meet
that criteria, you meet that destination, that's what I'm here to solve your heart means. It's very simple. You believe in him, and then you do what he asked you to do. If that is the case, kind of Jana, to the Theodosian Newsela they will find their news. Also, if you go back to number 102, you will find that Jahannam was the newsroom for the caffeine, because their lodge was their hotel was their destination where they were going to end up spending time that's what the news will means is where you're going to is where you land. You're being going to be scored into this. This is Your 90 Your name is on the list. And for those we're going to go for them it was gentleman, the other
believer for those who meet these two criterias simply
simply enough, you will find your net and for those that you know the gardens and the paradise fit those were the words for those mean, it's not even an Arabic word. It's interesting. And the word for those is actually a Persian word. And it's not actually Arabic and it's in its essence. And North Fela de means very, very thick and fruit
Will orchards or gardens. The concept of have a high level of fruitfulness is what those kinds of means you're gonna find. You're gonna find a lot to do and a lot to consume and a lot to deal with and a lot to get it there's going to be a lot there it's not it's not empty, but you're not doing those to me when you go there. There's so much for you do not need to.
for it to sink in and for you to for you to deal with it. And the prophets of Allah Salam tells us if you're those who are either Jannetty was helpful Jana, it is the highest part of Jana, it's the middle of the agenda.
That is the best part of it all. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam asked for for adults, he was always one of the many most probably the most famous idea that he made some nice animals Allahumma and then I said okay, and for the dose Allah Allah, our dental Jatin Rula Amina Jana, he made this joke but anyway command the Sahaba call it a cell to Mala
Jana first aloo Wilfredo so it's a very beautiful Hadith I love this hadith I take from it something beneficial beyond beyond just that if you're going to ask if you want to have an ambition have the highest ambition don't don't have an ambition to okay I just don't you just get into gender I'm happy What is this? What is why what is it? What's wrong with you? What do you mean in dunya? You want everything but gender just I just want to put my foot in I just wonder if I can just find like maybe a two by two by three room just to sit in maybe a TV I have some food I'm good. Well paying inshallah why? What is this night this tells Allah subhanaw taala You're not serious about it.
Again, I would definitely do it also the who's who are the same thing. You're taking this lightly. You're cheating. This is joke. I'm telling you this as
if it was Jana, and then neutral neutrality. I could accept the idea, meaning either go to Jana, or be neutral or neutralized. You're not gonna be existing. I didn't budget hard, I can understand that. But he's telling you either Jana or jahannam. For you to say I just want to be honest, why would you say that? Why would you want to be in the lowest bar? When do you want to be as far as you could possibly be from punishment? How are you going to be far from punishment the closer you are to those the farther you are away from punishment. These dead Yanni pathetic ambitions, I just want to antigen, have higher ambitions and then accept whatever Allah subhanaw taala gives you say, I don't
deserve that. See this difference between humility and ambition? Humility, say Allah by now I don't deserve it. I don't deserve it at all. My God, My ambition is that you put me in the highest place I'm going to work for it, even though I don't deserve it. So the difference is very, it's not the same thing. But those who am no I'm, you know, slightly ahead. Indeed, they will find a natural fit of those scenes. That's where their their names will be on the list. Enter. She noted for those
along with me, Charlotte, everyone finds themselves You're welcome in that, in that place. I can't even begin to imagine what you would find in such a place. I don't think we can ever understand. And I don't think any level or any amount of of description, or contemplation or reflection will allow us to actually yeah, and even remotely understand what you're going to find the place that the Mohammed satellites and and the Prophet hoped to be in the place that he you know, he wanted, he wanted an aspirant and told us if you're asking for Jenna asker for those don't ask for anything else. You don't want to miss that. Don't miss it, you'll be in Jannah. But if you miss out on that
you're missing out. So much more you could have done so much further. You could have gone Please don't miss out on for those. And the question of why why are we is it impossible for us to achieve it? Is it not achievable in this day and age? Or is it only for specific people? Or can you can you achieve it? I think I would like to believe because when you look at the words for those in the Quran, and it's not it's not uncommon. It's not something that's genetic. I didn't the Garden of Eden is everywhere.
It's not it's not much right. It's here today, and it's
understanding what I'm trying to what I'm trying to tell you, it's worth another fair dose came here at the end of Suzuka at the end of it.
Why think this means what I think this means is that the people who work on the concepts of sorts of guff who build their society the way Allah subhana wants them to build it using the tools achieving all the milestones and the goals are the ones are going to find themselves there. If you are not productive as a Muslim, if you're a Muslim who did not understand the ideas if you're not working towards building the community with the four elements that Allah subhanaw taala put in the Quran then you're probably not going to be worthy of those and you signed it up put it at the end of total capital you This is how you're going to end up by the genetic videos this is how again what is
Amande why middle Saudi hired me if you accepted from me the fact and if this is something that your your your mind is opening to that the word caffeine was defined within the within the yet then maybe I'm no I'm you know Saudi hydro also defined in the air yet maybe the first nine pages of pseudo camp defined for us what he meant by a man who I'm a little salty had maybe we need to read some nice milestones I have and the good man within the story of the two archers and the two men and what I moved to is I was able to achieve a learning with Oracle named it maybe that's what we need to achieve in order for us to be the from the people
to nickel full dose maybe it's not just an open arm and why middle Saudi had me make HST in London. I mean, Saudi had kind of long did not do for those until you just be a good Muslim praying, you're gonna go no, maybe I have to attach it to everything that sort of kind of talked about, we're also not doing his due diligence and I'm not being honest about it. And you're saying the idea here, it's a very, it's a very delicate one. Allah Subhanallah chose to put the Constitution doesn't fit those in the end of subtle curve, the teachers will listen, you see what they did, you see how slowly we moved from the idea to wealth of knowledge and to do coordinate this is what this is how you entered
an aquifer those you want that you want to be the highest place, that's what you need. I can't believe I can't imagine anything that is more any sacred to Allah subhanaw taala in terms of what his people do, then achieving that then achieving a Muslim society that is solid, that is self sustaining, that is close to him subhanaw taala does, that takes care of the disabled within them and takes care of their youth and builds and own expands and actually gives to everyone around them. They're not they're not consuming not taking from the societies they live around. They're actually offering the societies that they live around. I can't think of anything more. anything better than
that. I believe that to be the goal of Islam. The whole goal of it like the reason that we're here why would he make you resort to kind of every single Friday there's no other sort of that was given a day of the week and it isn't specifically not the best day of the week which is Jomar why because this is the point of Islam This is what was why you are Muslim there's no point of it. So you can do that so you can achieve these things and you achieve them and you do them then you fulfilled the whole purpose now you antigen nothing for those and if you don't, of course the rest of the Quran is explained isn't it interesting that's what happens right in the middle of the Quran is going to
worship the Quran is instead of dose was awful Jana again just setting the using the symbolism here. So the gap is right in the middle of the Quran, right in the middle of the title okay, you read the first half the second half is coming please this is this is the base this is the most important part if you open a book you open the middle of it okay, this is what you need to know this is the point of it and this will take you to the middle and the highest part of the gender age and that those were supposed to learn something from this Don't Don't let this pass you by don't let the concept of genetic fit of those at the end of total care pass you by without taking it in and understanding
this is what we're here for if you're not trying to achieve what sort of calf taught you to achieve that you're not doing your job and I'm sorry to say I'm scared to say well
Allah subhanaw taala that maybe it's not you're not going to vote for those maybe you want the agenda but maybe not there because something was missing within your Islamic understanding you were not supposed to just survive as Muslims but to thrive we're supposed to build be able to build the other tools are there now we have the principles we have the values we have the wealth we have the the knowledge what is missing?
What is missing nothing's missing what like I can't I don't know what's missing. I don't I don't know what's missing. I really don't know which I did I spend you have I spent Yeah, I need think what is missing? Why can't we get this done? What is it? Is it our egos? Is it? The back rack of intention? Is is it a difference? What is it that's killing us just holding us back from doing all the higher that we could do? Because so much there's so much pain and everything that we've got? And it's just very difficult. And then maybe it's not just maybe maybe we don't love genetics or dose enough? Maybe there's not enough love in our hearts called ENFP they are there for eternity labor
Hoonah and hey, well they don't wish to go anywhere else they have who
don't want who Allah is to be sent in a different direction you how will you know exchanging or changing directions. They don't want to be anywhere else. You can come and tell somebody to go save. Or we come over here for a while on the exchange but just try something No, no, I'm good. Like I should just try something. Nope. Nope. I am. I am happy. I don't want to go anywhere. You're like Dude, look, it's a new thing. Try something new. Listen to me. I don't want anything is perfect. I where I am right now. I can't imagine anything better than what I'm in right now. Have you ever been in a situation like that? No, you haven't. It's impossible for us. There are good times in our lives
we'd like to go back to but are they perfect? No, not even close. Not even close. There's never a point in your life where you're completely satisfied. Where you don't want to even know about the existence of anything else or anywhere else. I have a warning.
That's Allah subhanaw Jalandoni complete the last way I can show that have the I guess the the final pieces of wisdom within South Africa.

you have ILA you're in
Hong Kong ADA who Haider?
June hippo lb
you should be able to rob me he had
the second the second and third call in this page, the first one called Hello in a beautiful city. Wherever you see the word call, know that the prophets of Allah Allah wa salam was requested to tell us something important to give us information he had to make sure they taught us this concept as he went along. And that's why you'll find almost every single time there's something behind the word call, there will be a hadith in the Sunnah that will strengthen this idea because whatever Allah subhanaw taala told the prophets and allows them to tell us he explained and elaborated on your final Hadith which is a beautiful part of understanding the Sunnah is that it's always as a as an
explanation and elaboration on anything he was told couldn't say this. So it is not the is telling you what it is. But yeah, Mohammed explain, explain in more detail, make sure they understand exactly what they need to know right? I mean, that's an important part of dealing with this and no carnal Barrameda the legally mature B tell them see if the oceans were going to be used as me Dad, which is ink Hello, Canada. Hello, me, dad. If the oceans were ink, you can imagine it'll be to the words of my Lord, the words of wisdom and the words of knowledge of my Lord, Lana Vidal Bahama. Then the oceans would dry up, bubble and 10 for the Kalima turabi Before the words of my lords and are
finished, we're done. Well, Jeton, that'd be me three he made, even if he brought, supplemented a number of oceans after that. So you need like maybe five, six times. Okay, here, see if you can and won't run out. This is referring to the knowledge of Allah subhanaw taala, and the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa taala. And it's interesting when you look at these,
they talk about values and principles when they look at the word caffeine from an indifferent perspective, right. And then it talks about wealth, and it says, we'll end up with a homeo Mel PM, it was not me, though, it will be worthless will be weightless, they don't get anything for it. And here, there's a little thing there for knowledge. When Allah subhanaw taala talks about his own knowledge. jelajah learner who is knowledge and his wisdom is limitless, and it is endless. And if he tells you to do something, then the wisdom in what he told you to do, is endless as well. Meaning there is no way for you to encompass and understand everything, every angle of what He commanded you
to do. And that should be very reassuring to you, that even if sometimes you read and you and you're learning the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the commands of Allah, if parts of it, you can't make sense of every single part of it, if some things aren't, you can't you still haven't seen the wisdom and all of it, then you know that it's endless, it is limitless. The wisdom is there whether you can see it with your eyes right now we're not for you to wait to see the wisdom and everything is some is not is not the right way to go by it. If I have to get up you have to show me the the show me the outcome before I actually do it, then you won't do anything. Then you just have to sit
around and wait because I can't show you the outcome for everything. You have to believe in Allah subhanaw taala through looking logically at everything around you seeing prophecies and looking at history and life when you believe in Him subhanaw taala you show trust, you know that he is the most knowledgeable and he is the most wise and he tells you to do something to say yes this is the right thing to do. I have this how I have to live my life. But I can see that it's going to work out the way I want or not go low Can I borrow me dad and the ocean was just writing the word never would never end it would never end. We think we of course it's not gonna end the the amount of knowledge
that he possesses the panel data is obviously limitless. So obviously, we don't know it all. What do we know? Well, that will determine an enemy Allah Khalida only have a bit of knowledge. Actually, the more you know, the more you learn in life. Talk to scientists and scholars will tell you we don't know anything. And they'll be they'll be the first people to be have nothing. We know nothing. And then this person who spent maybe 90 years of his life studying a couple of PhDs I know nothing. We're so far away from knowing anything. I couldn't imagine that twellman is the twellman Visually the more knowledgeable I become the more knowledgeable my own ignorance I become. I found out how I
find out how
Little I actually know and this is a concept that needs to be understood as you deal with the Quran as you learn from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. You have just
one Nima Philately may shed your rotten Appalam. And if you found on Earth, if you took the trees on earth and made them pens or wood are we gonna do human body he said back to her, and you took the ocean and you added seven more Manaphy that's pretty much it. We're just writing with the moon that would not be endless. The the knowledge of Allah subhana wa Tada.
I attribute this to two things. First of all, the concept of knowledge that we found in the sutra, the concept of Valium.
When it regarding Musa without the side, there wasn't it was a it was a story that we read and we studied it was a bit. It's not the easiest story to kind of understand right away, you have to spend time looking into it. What it's telling what we understood from it is that you don't know everything you don't know the full story of everything that goes around you. You think you do, but you don't you see pain, you don't know exactly what's behind that you know what you don't know what that's going to add up to or lead to later. Accepting what happens in life isn't a big part of being a Muslim and being able to actually make progress. So this is the end of it is there to strengthen
that concept that we found in the sutra, for local Barrameda linefeed. You don't know You know, nothing, we know nothing. We know very little in comparison to Allah SubhanAllah. So what he tells us diligently we accept, we accept and we learn we practice, whether we can it we can touch it put our hand on every single Yeah, I need the practical result of it. Or even if even if we can't, even if we can't we still we still do we still walk we still walk down the road that Allah subhanaw for us. That's the first thing he left and it's a very, very worthy
piece of information in them and especially with LUCAM say again, in them exclusively and I am only a human being like you and Emma and Michelle will miss LUCAM you will have Elaine it has been revealed to me and NEMA Illa who Camila who were hired and indeed, exclusively your Lord is is one you know whom we love. Who was the only one for mankind, Al Juliet, Bada bing, this is breaking down Dean to the most simple form that ever will ever have. Any religion can become very confusing. If Johnny if you're trying to study all at once in in it in record time. This breaks it down to what it's supposed to be. Look, all it is I'm just a person profits. I'm saying I'm just just like you.
Really no difference in terms of Yeah, I need the fact that we're human beings here, of course some advice and
it's been revealed to me that your Lord is about one from uncanny or Judaica or be those of you who have hope, who have ambition, who have believe, who have certainty that they are going to meet their Lord, that there's going to be a time where you are brought back from death and then you will speak to him and you will stand in front of him and he will ask you when you will answer then you need to do two things. Coming back to the concept that we talked about failure MLM alongside when you need to do deeds that are effective, that are proper. Again, I've explained the real Saudi hand in this halacha at least 10 times, and I'll explain it as many times as I need until you understand the word
saw that means that it's doing the purpose that it was created to serve. It doesn't mean just a good deed. Good deed can have the word Hasson in it somewhere.
Right? Anything good father means that it's fulfilling its purpose. You were created for a purpose and you're fulfilling it so you'll saw that if you buy Johnny a phone, and it doesn't work as a phone, but it looks good. It's not fun to he'll find it Stanbury because I either saw the ad doesn't work even though it looks awesome like you know, playing music or something but it doesn't you can't phone with he can make a phone call. You can download all the apps and play all the games still on the phone as long as it's not doing his job. You can do other jobs, but it's not doing its job. So when he says hey, I'm an I'm alongside you, then do the deeds that you were created to do make sure
that you fulfill your purpose by doing whatever it is that you're good at.
And I do all the good deeds that you need to do because you can't do all of them but to at least one of them do something that you fulfill the purpose Allah subhanaw taala put you here on earth to fulfill Well yeah, but I'm I'm sorry, I just one doing the way he wants you to do it. The way so to kind of explain to us that we were supposed to do it. Well, you should it could be bad that you're here. And he should not associate within his heart within the worship of Allah subhanaw taala and his Lord anyone
take that take the
dunya which takes us back to that. Those who their hearts it was never it was never for him. Whether you should it could be a bad debt to be had and do not associate anyone with him. Do it only for him. Do it right. Do it for him. Can you do both? You're good. If you can do both, you're gonna make it to genuine show him if you can do both. It's very simple. This at the end is there to relieve any anxiety that comes to mind or heart after reading to look at all the details of actions that we have to
Do all the different things that we need to follow all the soldiers want to learn from all the knowledge we're supposed to obtain and wealth also to deal with, and principles we're supposed to have in power and how we're supposed to deal with any maneuver with all of it. Let's simplify it. It's just a man was sent revelation by Allah saying that one Lord, if you want to meet him, you believe that you got to meet him you believe him to be held accountable by him, okay, then do do do these two things. Make sure you fulfill your purpose, and do not associate anyone else with him and you're gonna be good. Now, the second one, which which is more difficult.
Now, if you end up suited to cafe time, which is more, which is a harder, I'm deciding whether you should or shouldn't be better?
I don't I don't know. I seriously, I have no idea.
I scholars better you know better than me and more knowledgeable than me. I've argued both ways. They've argued both.
They've argued both ways. They've argued that the intention is the most difficult thing to bring. And they've argued to stay on the on the road to stay on the path and not getting diverted yet. Yeah, and even
right or left and not lose your way, and not lose your motivation and not fall short of fulfilling your purpose and doing what you're supposed to do. It's very difficult as well, I don't know. But I believe that you can do both with with the fact that there that there may be difficulty in achieving this. That is doable. And I think it's doable through the concepts that sort of God brought to us. The couple of finales will give is very important. It tells us he was a few pieces of information at the end reminds us a few things, make sure that we stay focused, we know have the right intention in what you're doing. Don't be indifferent, wash out, you could lose everything if you do. But if you
don't, then Phil dos is waiting for you know that knowledge is endless and limitless, the knowledge of Allah Subhan does accept what he tells you. And know that is a very simple, simple, quick request. It's pretty simple. It's one Lord ascending to a person to tell you that it's just what he wants, he's going to meet you prepare I'm Osada and the lack of shook, prepared sincerity that allows you to be better than me, either. He's not associating within the worship of Allah. And he when is he saying just can you be sincere? can come to me not saying that there's more than one God and your reference of, of ethical values be be be be one, be universal, you make sure that your
reference of your ethics and just one is him? Subhanallah Do not you don't compromise? Because he is the only one who tells you what to do you do it, you do it. You don't compromise? He's Allah subhanaw taala you have to do what the law says no.
It's not like a person told you so you can talk to the person and he can give you an exception that you can do what you I know some of us accountants done you do whatever He asked you to do.
That is any sort of sort of the deaf
ears, I think the 20th session? Yes, again, there was a point that you mentioned.
If somebody comes up to you and ask you, What is Islam? Yeah. Would you say that it's sufficient to say, just do good deeds? And don't?
Don't come up with that? That'd be like,
I think it'd be very extreme, extremely simplified answer. I think he told us this simplified answer at the end of the sutra, after 10 pages of explanation. When you think about it, this was told to you at the end of the little guy but wasn't told to at the beginning of a sutra, he hit you with this after 10 pages of explaining to you what you're required to do, how you're going to do it, the steps you're going to take to achieve correct it and you move you through four stories and commentary and problems and
obstacles and ways and solutions. And then at the end of that he gave you this simple understanding this simple understanding is good now it is strengthened by the by the rest of by the mentality that this tool is supposed to bring for you. So if you understood up for you understand
that they'll see as a hallmark in your brain to things you have to hold on to hold on to them and shallows and go but you understood to curve, I think with Otsuka have, this will be tiny actually, it will reduce most of what Islam is kind of ruined. And I think that's what happens to us. I think when we study this, this idea started the context of total cost we don't understand it.
explained to us without us. We don't know what it means we ended up reducing it to something simple all you have to do is just do the deed and not do sugar I'm good miskeen This is the last I have 110 verses of a sutra you didn't read any of the verses before. You don't even know you have no idea what this ayah means because you didn't it's not understood within the context of the other verses you understand the problem now is the problem of Islamic education. We are continuously cutting and cutting and pasting taking completely out of their out of their homes and studying them with no context like it's okay to do that if the person was going to explain it to you. You say okay, we're
gonna we're gonna study sewer is number 100 attendants will do Cassidy but then he asked Jani provide you with the context of this order before so that this will make sense to you. So you can make sense of what I'm a father has means and what I did miss shidduch is going to be problem how he's going to be problematic
Add it for you. However, if either of those elements are missing then
it is the life is sucked out of it. And then you end up understanding in a very, very simplistic way. Actually it's reduced its falls and it's not it doesn't do his job. And you're saying what I'm probably is a good question. Because yeah, I think I think there's more to that I think the answer when we referring to the question, which is how would you explain Islam in two minutes Yanni?
It's really is based on who's asking and who's answering. It's very personal. I encourage people to think about it because I think it opens up the mind in terms of understanding your own faith, but I don't think there's a universal answer that I think I can all I can write down something we all memorize it and then I'm gonna answer everyone. I don't think that's how it works. I don't think because even when in the in the art of Dawa, you're supposed to know the person who is coming to you? What type of person they are, are they theological? Or the spiritual or the emotion? Where are they? So you can talk about the part of faith that they relate to more? If you don't know what, who
they are, who they are as people, it's not going to do anything for them? Because they're looking for a different answer. You have to know what they're looking for? Are they do they have a small dose or the actual looking for the truth? What is the so there has to be more context, when you're asked the question I just I simplify just for the benefit of people thinking about it. But that is sort of the curve. For stories, you will find these stories only answer to Kathy will not find them anywhere else is a sort of right in the middle of the Quran. And it's like it's such so unique. It's put in the middle, none of the stories and you will find anywhere else you will find this oil curve
even referred to anywhere else, you will find the two men and the two archers referred to anywhere else. mosaicism is a no he's a celebrity in the Quran. He's everywhere. However, this story does not exist anywhere else. The alternate is the only place where his name comes up. It's nowhere else to be found in the whole Quran. Very unique stories that move you through, it takes us steps, up steps, you start somewhere, then you move forward, then you move forward again, and then you until you reach a goal. And when you see the goal, you see beauty, you see how you're being being distributed. You see globalization of goodness of good values, people being helped by those who are stronger than
them. And it gives you this feeling that this is who we are supposed to be. And that is what I want you to I need to take you to California. I was thinking before I came here today as I walked, like how am I going to summarize the cuff. And I figured my conclusion was I can't summarize with confidence. It's almost impossible for it to be somewhere that feel like if you summarize it, we actually kill all the beauty in it. If anything. Yeah. And he listened to the maybe the listen to it again, listen to the explanations again, and then read it every single Friday and come up with your own. You will find your own insight as you go through the curve. But it is read it feel motivated at
the end of it. Right? Then come listen to
and hopefully hopefully, Jim, I will offer you something. Yeah, I need to continue that because I was Joomla is what was your mom for
Joomla is our what we do as muslims, we have societies, we need to move forward. So what do we do we build a machine, we put a guy on there to tell us what to do next. That's how we run things we need to and we have to meet with him every single week. You have to meet with him every week. So he tells us what our next step is going to be. You're going to tell us these are the problems and we need solutions. He may have solutions to me telling us that we have to find these solutions then. And we work on them until the week after hopefully the week after we have made some progress. And then we'll talk about something else. And that's how we move forward. So why do what sooner are we going
to read on that day? That is sort of going to be done that day on that day in preparation for Juma prayer in preparation to accept all that you've sort of got why because it fine tunes the compass, this is where you're going. Your goal as a Muslim is to build a society of Muslims that is strong that will be full of hate. And these are the elements you need. These are obstacles that we will face face. And these are the things that you need to do in order to achieve it. Now goal isn't what this guy is going to tell you. And then take that to heart and actually do something great. And that is the whole point. Right? And I've always I've always felt that to be a beautiful, beautiful thing
builds a lot that makes everything it makes sense. It makes way more sense. Now, why would you sort of gap and why we come to bear, we're supposed to be trying to become a real company. And all the good milestones that that exceeded that came before it within the Surah I will end in sha Allah Gani. With that I will see you next time. Before we leave, we have to vote on the next Surah
So what do we want to do? Now? If you leave it up to me, I may choose something you may not like. So
how we ended up at reading through the tab was by vote, meaning we had a few people we had four or five suggestions and then we just voted in the one that people wanted to listen to the most. So do you have some suggestions? You do because you talk to
all right. Well I think it's a rip off like I'm already doing it in the in the gym library and if I
sure Yeah, who does is huge. It's beautiful. It's very, very deep. I don't know. I don't mind.
So we have to know who to vote.
how do you keep keep going
to the end
if you have like a couple of couple decades we can go from children to the end of the Quran.
I don't mind doing Maryam as a second step I don't mind Maryam is actually Yanni. Actually very
Yeah, Marie. I don't know. Has anyone done that I've seen Miriam.
Yeah, I wouldn't mind doing so with Maria. I think it's one of the underestimated students for a reason. That it's, it's recited a lot and rarely reflected upon, meaning the, the SUTA is enjoyable from a citation perspective. However, the actual meanings of it are,
are rare really looked at who this guy is a beautiful it's one of my, one of my favorite sources. Obviously, I enjoy talking about it. It's very long, however, it's two is 12 and a half pages, if not a bit more, so it would take us roughly Yaniv, 3030 weeks to finish it
can be very, it would be very, very long. All right. So I'll think about in Charlotte, and I'll surprise you guys in Charlotte next Sunday. What we do, but I have a couple of suggestions. Let me kind of process ADC this time. I'm gonna go by voting I'm gonna I'm just gonna be a dictator. Because you'll learn that from Delta domain right and I know he didn't
like all of
