You could possibly have and you're answering every every question that you come up, because the concept of submission is what makes us land unique in terms of a faith. Islam actually means submission. So and it's something that we say, we don't think about too often because we were born Muslim, or we grew up that way. So it's just, you know, it's kind of a given, but we haven't really thought about it and Muslims, early Muslims, people actually accepted the, the message of the Prophet SAW Allah Isaac, Islam had to answer this question very deeply. You have to think about it for a while. Are we ready to give up our freewill especially Arabs in the era?

00:00:36--> 00:01:16

At the time in, in Arabia, I want to give some some background regarding this just to make sure that this this concept is landing with you. It's actually making the point. nothing was really working for the Arabs in that century. Let's take a look at them for a moment. Let's let's kind of analyze the the Arabian situation in the fifth or sixth century. What did they have going for them? Did they have any political power? No, they had zero political power, they had no political organization whatsoever. It was just the tribe to a code or the tribe law, where whoever runs the tribe, or at least the tribe controls everyone in the tribe and all their

00:01:19--> 00:01:53

decisions have to go by him. And each and how many tribes are there and there are 1000s and 1000s of them. And every time the tribe gets a bit bigger, it breaks into two other tribes. And now you have two new guys who are going to run things. And there's really no political organization whatsoever. Financially, people were poor, for us dirt, they barely had enough to eat too many people starved in the desert. And it was and that's the basic reason people buried their children. It wasn't what we think it is. Whereas you know, poor men hated the hatred of women, it was really the hatred of women that made them do it. It was actually poverty. They didn't have enough to feed these girls, and they

00:01:53--> 00:02:25

were scared that if they don't feed these girls properly, then these girls will have to sell their own bodies to eat. And they didn't. And this is how scared they got from that. So they ended so the basic problem was actually poverty you find in the front Well, I talked to the mean him laughing Akasha team laughing him luck is poverty is complete poverty, we have nothing, you're you're just you're very, very poor. So don't kill your children out of poverty. Wait, well, you will feel fine provision to feed them inshallah just work hard. And maybe, you know, think different, have some good, no, kill your children. So financially, things were really bad. And it's understood, you're

00:02:25--> 00:02:30

living in the desert. Now many resources existed. Little did they know that they were sitting on

00:02:31--> 00:02:37

trillions and trillions and trillions of dollars of oil. They had no idea at the time, but they didn't know that there was the biggest

00:02:38--> 00:03:16

reservoir of oil in the whole world at the time. SubhanAllah. Very interesting. The irony in it. A, the irony ended up. What's the biggest resource that Arabia was given? Was it the oil? Or was it the book? Which one was it? Right, like so? I mean, it's a question that they'll be answered for many generations to come. That Allah Subhanallah blessed Arabia, right. What comes to mind? Was it the black stuff coming shooting up from the ground? Or was it the syllabi Sullivan when he brought forward and you can you can be the judge of that yourself on him. But anyways, so financially, it was horrible socially, it when things weren't working well as a company I don't know him was was was

00:03:16--> 00:03:32

the norm and people were were severing their relations of kinship and, and tribes that were cousins were fighting like those will cause damage. For example, you give me examples that you know about. These are our cousin tribes, meaning they're not, they're very related, like Lowe's is the brother of

00:03:34--> 00:04:04

very close, and they're killing each other, just killing each other. Because socially, there weren't good norms, and there was a lot of meaning. Children were not good to their parents and parents were not good to their children. And this was, it was a social norm at the time. So financially, it sucked politically, it wasn't going well, socially. They weren't getting making any gains, intellectually. Nothing. They didn't they didn't leave. They are no, they were not scientifically driven. They left really no knowledge. Like there was no knowledge and no books were written. Most people didn't know how to read and write. It was a big deal. If you came from a tribe if you knew

00:04:04--> 00:04:09

how to read and write only certain families cared for this. You only certain families, like many Masoom and

00:04:11--> 00:04:38

many will mean many chumps certain certain tribes of claimants care about a literacy that you knew how to write and read and read. Most people didn't even think it was a big deal. Maybe they didn't think it was a great thing or whatever. Like it was also you can read it right? Well, there's nothing written for you to read. And if you're right, no one's gonna read it. So who cares? Like it wasn't all they really had going for them was maybe they were very artistic. And they had a very strong command of their own language, which they were the only people to benefit from, like no one else spoke the language so no one cared. They thought that they could tell their heart Dickens good,

00:04:38--> 00:04:41

no one's gonna listen to something that they don't understand and make no sense.

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

So nothing really what the only thing that was going for the Arabic person was their dignity. They were extremely hard headed. They would never accept anyone ruling them, and they were never ruled before. They were ruled before not because they were so strong is just because it was too much of a it was all

00:05:00--> 00:05:29

Waste of time for the King to come and try to rule this land. Why would you come to rule these people? What are you gonna get out of them, there's nothing, there's no money, there's nothing there, what's the point of going, a lot of fighting and they're all over the place and scattered, it's just not worth the time. So they were never ruled because of that simple reason that it wasn't worth the, you know, the money or the, you know, you're gonna go on a conquest, and then come back with almost nothing to show for it. So an Arab person was never ruled before. And that built in them a certain level of dignity that other people sometimes did not have. So an Arab man at the end,

00:05:29--> 00:05:59

maybe he's poor, maybe he's ignorant, maybe he's racist. Maybe, you know, he hates everyone, everyone hates him. But at the end of the day, he makes his own decision, he gets on his horse, he has a sword and doesn't do anything. And you don't you don't you don't get to tell him anything. You don't get to order him around. And he if it comes to the point where you think you can order him around, well, he's gonna take out his sword, and you know, we'll fight to the death. That's the only that was going for them towards their free will, that made them candidates of this book. Really, when you look at this, nothing else, maybe you could say, well, you know, the prophets I send them

00:05:59--> 00:06:30

came from the bunny, but it's mainly been Abraham, that's true. And the Cowboys it has to, but as a population, as a population, nothing was really going for them. It made more sense for the prophet of this time to come from the Jewish tribes actually made more sense. Actually, when you look at it, it makes more sense. They had the, they were much better educated, they were better organized, they were better. They had better ethics, morally, they were they were superior, they had a book that they followed, it made more sense for this profit to come amongst them, but he didn't take him to the law exam. He said them from the Arabs, who didn't have a book, we're gonna talk about that a

00:06:30--> 00:07:06

moment, it's gonna be a part of every citation in a second. But what they had going for them was their free will. So when the prophets I said, okay, they said, the name of my message is submission of your free will. That became a bit of a paradox, it was it was a problem is a problematic proposal, you're requesting something that to them meant a lot, that we actually give up our freewill to the will of Allah subhanho wa taala. It's all I have I possess, Arabs literally possessed nothing else. When I tell you, I tell people you have nothing, that's all you have is your Free Will everything else is an illusion. You think money you think you have status you together,

00:07:06--> 00:07:35

it's all illusion, it goes in comes, it fluctuates, you can never control any of that. All you control is your free will the fact that you can make your own decisions that you get to think freely and then decide freely. That is who you are, that is what you are. That's what you take with you, you'll will be as we can find in your book, right? So it doesn't make as much sense when you have a lot of other things going for you. It's hard to, to get rid of all the distraction and all the clutter and get it all the way and be able to see you know that that's what you actually have. But for the Arab person, it was really simple because he literally had nothing else anyway. You didn't

00:07:35--> 00:08:10

have a home didn't have much money didn't have, you know, big family that loved him. You didn't have any political, you didn't have anything and you have a message that he was defending nothing. They're all that was there was his free will. Really, and when the Prophet was I sent him I said, Okay, you know, this is what the message is called. It's called submission of your free will, to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala it struck a nerve for everyone. And it forced them to think so these sutras that they read made sense way more sense to them, then it's making us like as I'm trying to explain to you how this is going to manifest in your life. It we're trying to make sense of it. But

00:08:10--> 00:08:44

for them it made way more sense. Because they were on the you know, on the sideline, do I had to actually submit, do I whatever he says subhanaw taala. Isn't that like the center is that when we read it will McAnally move meaning when I'm gonna tell you that Baba Allahu Allah su emmalin a Hakuna To whom will heal Ottoman Eminem was never acceptable for a believer, male or female when ALLAH SubhanA gave a command for them to say we have an option. There's no option he said, do this. That's going to do solver it's done because you submitted you made the choice to submit to Him spinal dialer, to give up your freewill to his boss of high No dad, still you have freewill, the

00:08:44--> 00:09:12

other things, but the general and the general scheme of stuff, right? It's whatever Allah subhanaw taala commands us. We accept, sometimes you agree with it, sometimes you enjoy it, sometimes you don't. But you still submit that makes sense. So So these clusters of students were extremely important. And they made a whole lot of sense to the Arab at the time. And they shaped the way they viewed the world around them. They viewed time and space and themselves and others and their story throughout life.

00:09:13--> 00:09:42

And I'm trying, my goal is to try and get you to see that as much as possible. As soon as we talked about it talks about submission when it's especially hard to do so when it specifically difficult to actually submit. So it's about looking at it from a communal perspective. And we saw how the societies were viewed with this with seven we were given the example of that was Muslim and anti semitic, running a society that's submitted to Allah Subhanallah through chakra, that's how societies do submission. They show gratitude, they give back they don't they're not selfish to themselves, they make sure that others benefit from what they have, and they're not wasteful. And

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

then we see the opposite and how they felt. And then the sort of went through a bunch of other things in terms of submission to Allah Subhan Allah societies, how we view others is that what we say to them, what our conversation is going to be based on what the what the what the narrative that we have regarding them is that when we are coming to Allah Who doesn't

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

Over you literally movie if she were us to where we are guided or misguided time will only show Allah subhanaw taala will bring us your milk Yama and say who was guiding wasn't and also outcomes will prove this outcome to prove this I'll do my thing you do you think your thing let's see who's gonna who can who can actually bring bring home the I need the dough we're gonna actually make make the difference in the society. And it talked about the fact that if you submit to someone and you follow someone blindly you will milk gamma that you can't use that argument. You're gonna get sejarah by follow that person. He's the one who lied to me that you made the decision and you have

00:10:33--> 00:11:03

to carry it. Yes, they may have commanded you. Yes, they may be even manipulated your opinion. Maybe they even lied to you. Maybe they tried to fool you. But you were fooled and you are a manipulator. And that's your fault. And that's your problem. Whatever you do, you carry it, you're moody. So whatever you hear from me or from others, or anyone in the world, trying to tell you something or trying to convince you to do something or thinking a certain way. Whether you do that or not has to be your decision. It can't be. Well, I did it because Phoolan I trust him so I listened to him. No, no, it can't be like that. You because You can't go with that anywhere. You're welcome. You can't

00:11:03--> 00:11:32

come and say, well, he's the one who said it. That's not going to help you. I may get punished a bit more if you put it on me, but you're still gonna come with me like you're going? You may you did it to, you know, you didn't have to, I didn't control you. I immediately said something. She thought I was gonna make a hook Bob with that job. I'm gonna clarify. Okay, everyone, let me be clear, I did not control anyone. I just called you and you came. That's all I did. Now I'm living up to my part of the deal. I accept the fact that I did that I accept the punishment coming to me, do you?

00:11:33--> 00:12:09

Human beings, oh, like taking the blame for anything. We live our lives trying to you know, make sure that we're not to be blamed. Even when it's fully our fault. We find ways not to blame ourselves and, and the most important part of the deen is accepting accountability. Most important part of Islam is that you accept that your choices are sacred and you're accountable for them. That's all you need to teach by the way, your children, all they need to learn is that their choices are the most sacred only thing possession that they have, and that they're going to be held accountable for it. And that being a Muslim is making sure that your choices are submitted to the

00:12:09--> 00:12:42

free will of Allah subhanaw taala very simple equation, that if we can get into the minds of Muslims, then we're good. And then all the other details kind of just figure themselves out as you go along. It's no big deal to us, you can figure it out. I don't need you to know, I needed the details of every mess Allah regarding CRM, and then any guidance, I don't need that for you. But if people can answer those, you just need to know this. This has to be a fundamental part of who you are, has to be a part of it has to be embedded into your G DNA has to be running with your blood and your vessels. And for everyone else, we're not getting anywhere, if that's missing, it doesn't

00:12:42--> 00:13:17

matter what you have, it doesn't matter what other you know, pieces of knowledge or, or other attributes you have as a person, if that's the missing, the most important part of the deen is missing in you you don't, you don't understand how important your your choices are, how accountable you are, and how being a Muslim is just making sure these few choices, these choices based on your freewill submit to Allah subhanaw taala as well. And I can't emphasize that enough. So in the last part of students, I talked about the biggest problem in society, which is financial, how you understand finance, wealth, and he talked about that we explained that last time in depth and how a

00:13:17--> 00:13:37

society needs to see wealth, the how the wealthy addressee well, then how the poor hard to see wealth, and how to have to deal with it. And we talked about that in detail last time. Today, we will start a new paragraph in the sutra, we'll start from a number 14 And we will read sha Allah to 45. In sha Allah, we are granted the blessing of making that far. And then the last, if you take a look at them just as a

00:13:40--> 00:13:50

hook for next time. So you come back, if you look at number 4647 4849 and 50, what's in common, and all these

00:13:52--> 00:14:23

are back again. But this time different. Remember I told you guys that sometimes you'll find that are pull pull pull in a row. And these serve one of the things we talked about that before. So in this segment, we're lucky we get to see two groups of I have that one of them already served, it served a dialogue until it told us how we're going to have dialogue. Here's a different thing. Here's your narrative. Here's what we think and what we say it's going to be very beautiful. So it's an awesome finale to the students. I love it. It's my one of my favorite one of my favorite verses in the whole Quran are these ones that we'll read in Sharla next time, but today, we're gonna

00:14:23--> 00:15:00

there's one more paragraph left. That is very integral to finishing or completing the the angles of submission of societies that Allah subhanaw taala put into the server. And I think we've talked about this quite a bit. And I'll remind you of a few things before we because it's important to understand that before we start reading these societies, when the when we talk about societies, we're talking about groups of people or populations that have centralization of certain aspects of who they are. So they have to you have to have centralized at least one of the four elements you have to centralize their politics, their finances, their religion or their or

00:15:00--> 00:15:34

or their or their social activities, one of these four things have to be centralized. If none of these things are centralized, then they're not really a society, they're not really a community, they're just a population that have that happen to share a common belief. Then we have many of these examples, you know, all over the world, a society, a community with us, as soon as somebody is talking about no talking about a group of people who have centralized some of their efforts. So either they are ruled politically by one group, and we don't have that here, as Muslims. That's not the case. We are part of a bigger political system that rules people from very different backgrounds

00:15:34--> 00:15:54

and faiths altogether. So we don't have centralization in our politics, we are simulating refinances meaning we have like a basement in Muslimeen, whereas the car is taken from everyone. And then that is distributed amongst us probably based on leadership, no centralization of religion means we have one religious leadership, whether one person or a group of people, when it comes to religious activities, religious beliefs, or religious

00:15:56--> 00:16:25

movements is going to be centralized in one place, we don't have that either. It's probably the easiest thing to get, but we don't have it. And then the simplest of all, it's centralization of sort of social activities, meaning we all have, there's a part of the city that we all live there. And that's where our Halal places are all in all, our, that's where we buy our things. And that's it. And that's what we gathered, that's what we do our activities over schools, we don't have that either. So basically, I find it very hard. And I've talked about this a couple of times before, just so you understand that we're learning to step up. But I don't think a lot of the contents that we

00:16:25--> 00:16:56

have learned this week, don't necessarily apply to our societies here don't necessarily apply to them. That doesn't mean that as soon as that's not useful, it means that we just have to move forward to something so that we can actually benefit from the knowledge that is given here, because we are living without centralization. And that is problematic. This is what you need to push for. If you are living in this society, and you feel that, you know, we should be we should be getting somewhere, we're not getting anywhere. And we're not in it's been the same story for the last 40 years, or 10 years, or however long you've been able to live for every time the same problem just

00:16:56--> 00:17:12

repeating themselves, time after time, generation after generation, then that will usually lead to push for is some form of centralization. And this has to become the topic of discussion within families and amongst people. You got to find one of the four things we can centralize now politics given we can't do that. So let's get rid of that.

00:17:13--> 00:17:17

Three more things, one of them has to work, you have to be able to get one of them, if not all three.

00:17:18--> 00:17:22

I think I don't know, which is I don't know which one is the easiest to be honest.

00:17:23--> 00:17:57

I think they're all a bit challenging. But if you can get one of them done, if you can centralize our social life, for example. And that's good enough for us to become a society that functions. And we can start making some, some gains and making some enhancements and events, advancements in our own lives. But if we don't centralize anything, and we continue to live in the sporadic way that we live right now, where the masjid is the place where you pray, maybe listen to a HELOC or something and you go home, it gives me to get some Quran, that that's not going anywhere long term doesn't work, you can't sustain society. And the beautiful, beautiful part is that social sociologists in

00:17:57--> 00:17:58

the West know that.

00:17:59--> 00:18:30

That's where they're not threatened by anything you do. Because they know that they know that societies that don't centralize they don't go anywhere. They're not worth much. So they don't really cater to our needs. Meaning politicians don't come telling giving us promises. Yes, we have, if you don't, if you if you attend these meetings, they come and talk to you, but they're not promising you anything. Why? Because they don't, you're not strong enough for them to need to promise you anything. Once you're what they get when they go to other societies that are centralized, they come with promises, they come okay, we're going to offer you this way not because because these people

00:18:30--> 00:19:05

have some level of unity who they can, but we don't, even though number wise, it's easy for us to do. So we are actually huge numbers we have, we're very thankful like our bar generations are not the majority of people are actually under under 35. So it's a very youthful society, you would think that they would cater to us? And they would if we had some level of centralization anywhere, anywhere at all, they would definitely come and cater What do you need, you want more holidays, it's fine. Even if something simple like that, just food if you just meet, it's all we care about is meat, then fine. They'll do that for us. It houses you want, you want better, better contracts, if

00:19:05--> 00:19:33

it will take it to the federal government or write something better for you. If you're not happy with the wordings if the terminology is with throwing everyone off and scaring people off. And what is it is school do you want the what you want in school or university is what you need? Just show some centralization. So when we're failing to do this, not only are we fit Yeah, we're not just failing, failing to understand what it's about actually benefit from it because it is ours to it for me to explain. I've only done it three times in the past because I always find it hard to do so because it's hard to draw parallels for people from it because if they just did, the example is not

00:19:33--> 00:19:46

there. It's we lack that ability. But we also are harming ourselves. Long term. We're harming our own generations. We're depriving our kids and our grandchildren from growing up with some sense of dignity

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

and belonging and identity like we're actually we're actually depriving them from that and that's not I don't think that's fair. I think that's wrong, and I think we can do better. We can do way better. I think we can get rid of our egos a bit. The message is big enough.

00:20:00--> 00:20:32

You know, for for our bodies, but it's not big enough for our egos, I can tell you that there's not enough space in this message for the egos among the most of maybe we can fit all in here in terms of standing by each other when we can't fit our heads, figuratively, and we're, we have to get rid of that. And that takes time that takes a certain level of sincerity and willingness. You have to push people who are in positions to speak and in positions to make, you know, to give opinions and to and to lead others to start moving towards these ideas and talking about these ideas and seeing what options we have. And how can we centralize if you've ever been to the big cities, metropolis,

00:20:32--> 00:20:59

Metropolitan zone, North America, you'll find places called like Chinatown, correct. Nobody's Chinatown. They centralize socially. They centralize the community socially. They did it by just living in the same place, having the same streets, all the places, all the houses, everyone living there, that's what they they don't tend to like financially. And they don't tend to live their lives because they don't have a common religion. But they but they do that socially. You'll find examples of that all around the world where they centralize, and we don't we live all over the place and just fine by me, I don't need that you live where you want to live, I live in the north because you're

00:20:59--> 00:21:31

ready to go and enjoy. I live in East because you're not that's fine as well, doesn't matter. But can we at least because we have a reason we have a means to centralize easily, even we're living all over the place because we have the masjid we have the member we have the religion, the religious, the religious authorities there, it's not hard to do so. But even that I think is now impossible. And I think that maybe we're better off trying financially or socially, trying like a fund that almost seems good to contribute to in them use that to actually, you know, because once you have money, you have power, money is power is the language of power in the world is having money. And we

00:21:31--> 00:22:10

don't like numbers, we don't like money, we just like proper usages of it. And we can't seem to get like we look at this message. It is puny. It's parking lot is horrible. It's, you know, you're the self deal, whatever project has been good I came to Canada is on 13. And I saw it and I saw it the other day and nothing has changed. It's like, we can't seem to, we can't seem to fund anything. And it's not through the lack of money or the lack of manpower, it's just the lack of trust, it's the lack of centralization, there's a lack of vision that we don't see these things we don't have. And it's really sad. Because, again, you and I who are, you know, you're old enough to understand what

00:22:10--> 00:22:40

I'm saying you've already made it, meaning you're not you're not vulnerable anymore, you can make our own decisions, you'll be fine. But it's the it's the coming upcoming generation that's gonna pay for this, they're gonna pay for it. Because it's hard to live in a society where you don't have that sense of belonging and a sense of identity that is strong enough so that you can vote you can be a part of something bigger than yourself. Young men need that, if you don't find that they get bored. So they go find something to belong to, I don't blame them. I don't blame someone who wants to belong to something that is making a so it's sometimes we're lucky. And they do it in sports. And if

00:22:40--> 00:23:07

you're lucky, your kid goes into sports, right? And they certainly do it in a different way. And then you're one of the unlucky ones. And you're dealing with a problem that's hard, almost impossible to solve. But the reason is, because nothing's happening here. There's nothing here that is interesting and, and moving and engaging for people to come and be a part of what's runs here. I don't know Halacha, maybe some prayers. It's all nice, but doesn't doesn't move people the prophets I send them was a magnet

00:23:08--> 00:23:39

to people who who wanted to have a cause wanted a message to live for something that they can, they can change the world with. They just didn't just want to, you know, sit around and listen, they actually wanted to do things they want. They want to challenge the status quo. They wanted to challenge how other people were living, what other people were doing, and all the mistakes in the world now their oppression and all the and all the injustice, they want to stand up against that they needed the means and the prophets, I send them provided it, you provided a way of thought in a way of life that was very, that was different, that was unique, that looked forward to these higher

00:23:39--> 00:23:56

levels of functioning and these higher values and they wanted to be a part of it, even if they were poor. And they were they didn't have a name and they still wanted to do it. And they stood by himself. Somebody gave their lives for it. And they felt good about it. They felt good that we're living for something that is larger than ourselves and we're willing to die for something larger than ourselves as well.

00:23:59--> 00:24:07

Leadership is always an integral integral part of everything, but you never like true leaders in societies like that's never the there's never the issue. Like

00:24:08--> 00:24:14

let me be me. It's not it's not that you don't have leaders, you need leaders and you need people who are willing to be led.

00:24:16--> 00:24:48

If you have 50 leaders and that's all you got, you got to go anywhere everyone's a leader. If everyone's going to leave the food's going to flee you got you got to do it. You need people who are willing to actually be lived. What was the best part? The best leader of a soul is the best follower of Muhammad says to them, you have to follow one what's the lesson do you have to be a follower in essence, in essence we have to be followers we have to follow him some advice and if we do then we can become leaders so it's not about whether you're but of course that's hard it's not easy and I I've never seen the lack of leadership like in any society I've always see people that oh this you

00:24:48--> 00:25:00

can easily do it but no one's willing to be led by so call us is dead you killed it immediately you because there's too many people who don't who actually deep inside is clearly they want to be than that. So we got too many people find

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Getting over isn't that what ended

00:25:03--> 00:25:31

what ended up whatever wasn't you know the World War One it wasn't I didn't know what end of the Netherlands too many people wanted to lose him to be very but too many people want to lead to many of these I felt that they were worthy of and they start fighting and then we had all these small little, you know, countries we have we had small countries in the Middle East way before you know, colonialism you've had all these small countries all over the place for a long time you finish we just no one teaches us our history properly you don't understand the history of Islam properly because you were never taught it's not your fault. But if you understand and you've studied we've

00:25:31--> 00:25:36

had these problems for the last maybe 700 years people have been fighting over overland and fighting over power

00:25:38--> 00:26:05

well you know, hear a lot of that is not there because it's not based on that. Here's a different story here we are trying to survive as a faith trying to make sure you know that all these younger people can can enjoy some some something to be proud of somebody that can belong to an own and and continue and that just needs some level of compromise and some level of coordination and cooperation. It's not as hard trying to run a country is way more difficult we can't do this we can't do

00:26:06--> 00:26:41

we can't do this here now we definitely cannot you know help fix fix political problems around the world. It's impossible you can't do something as simple as just coordinating a society and helping people at least have some level of unity anyways, so I just need to kind of make a point it's not it's not the funnest thing to talk about but it's something it's food for thought and just kind of think amongst yourselves and you never know which one of you will come up with the idea that will fix this and give us some hope for a better future but let's start with number 14 and try to read before you find out shall be led him in a che on your body

00:26:45--> 00:26:48

Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim

00:26:53--> 00:26:54


00:27:01--> 00:27:02


00:27:09--> 00:27:12

yeah can can

00:27:20--> 00:27:21

also be

00:27:23--> 00:27:26

totally uniform in Dooney him

00:27:32--> 00:27:36

Belkin yeah boo Jin

00:27:40--> 00:27:44

XL to be him I mean, meaning

00:27:52--> 00:27:53

when a file

00:27:54--> 00:27:56

got wrong

00:28:03--> 00:28:08

What's up Hooli Lavina Wallen who are there Ben

00:28:17--> 00:28:23

Ben Letty equal to be heard to the

00:28:31--> 00:28:48

ladies for three first and then we'll continue because the third one the fourth one is the one that will kind of bring the topic home going to clarify things so this is a bit of a buildup. So we omashola home Jamia and on the Day when He will finally gather them all so yeah, Shalom Kasam ha Sheldon hytrel is a gathering

00:28:49--> 00:29:27

or a movement of people from different directions in a certain direction. It's usually used for gathering or it's usually used for groups kind of differentiating amongst each other or or moving away from each other so that you can see you can obviously see two groups or more so those who are like come to the same place we only I showed on Jimmy He will gather all human beings me all people because the common thing on the day of judgment is that you're a person that's all that you need to be like in order for you to come to this place. You have to be a human being other futures really don't have to be there and like they're not a part of the sub but everyone else is a human if you're

00:29:27--> 00:29:34

a human then you're going to be sure you're going to be gathered and brought to a certain place Wyoming Shalom Jimmy I want he gathers all of them Jimmy on every one.

00:29:35--> 00:29:39

So may upon will Malik and then he will say to Pilate which either to the angels

00:29:41--> 00:29:45

he points to those who did not submit to Allah subhana wa Tada

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

so those who didn't submit to Him He will point to you caught up to them and he goes haha yeah can can we do these people were they worshipping you? Was it you whom they were worshipping if they refuse to submit to me

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

They must have submitted to you because you're the strongest thing I've created laminitic are the strongest of Allah subhanaw taala his creations the

00:30:08--> 00:30:26

strength is outweighs human beings and jinn and everything else. So the question was more of a logical one for them. Well, you know must be you that they submitted to have the refused to submit to me I have Yocum. Can we capture so called behind? Like they say, No, Allah, you're the exalted one.

00:30:28--> 00:30:51

And no one should be. No one's no one says you should submit to anyone but yourself. So in the case of Helena, what their meeting is, even the concept of them submitting to us is completely unacceptable. You're the only one who deserves creation to Submit to submit to so behind it. And totally Yoona min Dooney him you are are. So the word when he usually is translated as helper.

00:30:52--> 00:31:32

I don't necessarily like the word helper. I think ally is a better fit to the word when he left it is it's not a political allegiance or Alliance. It's more of, of who has your back. Basically, who supports you, who stands by you, who do you base your your courage, and your decisions on that's what what he what he actually means meaning when I know that I have some someone behind me, as I make these decisions and make these choices and move forward in life, he's my buddy, whoever that is. That's why when you come to get married, is one of the requirements for at least two of them, though, is that the lady should have already jumped someone that whose this person is the person who

00:31:32--> 00:32:06

has your back. So we don't mess with this lady. Because you know, you have to speak to this guy. Right. And that's one of the reasons within one lady, but her your family's there. It's not for her marriage choice to be controlled. It says for the guy who's coming to get married, knows that she has a family who has her back, who will back her up on all her decisions. So maybe because when you're in the house, when man marries a woman, and they're alone in the home, men can sometimes think you know that they can overpower this person, you know, I have more? And then they're reminded No, no, she, when I got married, I didn't actually just speak to her, I spoke to a guy who had a big

00:32:06--> 00:32:10

beard and wasn't very, you know, wasn't very friendly at the moment.

00:32:12--> 00:32:44

So it's okay, if you're, you know, marrying your daughter off to kind of sit there not too amused by, you know, the chap who's walking in. So okay, because the point is I you know, this is what he means, like he's there, he's totally has your back and support, sir. And then you have, you know, that you just, it's just a form of protection and insurance for the lady and making sure that you know, you're not coming to marry someone who has no, she has a family behind her that supports or stands by her. And this made a difference. By the way. I believe there's more domestic abuse today than there ever wasn't the Middle East back in the sixth century, at least amongst families, amongst

00:32:44--> 00:33:16

tribes, who had respectful families was very unheard of a man didn't beat his wife. We think that that how it was back in the day, it wasn't really it was it was for people who are from a lower socioeconomic status. It was for and it was usually directed not to ladies who came from respectful families, they usually came for email, meaning that they use were married, but they were slaves at the time that they were married, or they had, you know, had lost connection to their families that would be treated like that. And I'm not justifying it, it's horrible. It's all wrong. I'm just telling you what the reality of the issue was in the Middle East, or in the Arabia at the time.

00:33:17--> 00:33:49

Those who came from respectful families that was was never an issue. Because if she if the man, you know, dared to do that to her, then she just had to let her 15 Brothers and father and then the tribe would would come raiding and kill the guy in me it was a war. And war is started in Arabia because of these things. And continued for many years. If you go into the history of Yanni, the actual Peninsula, you'll find that many wars started because of a man and woman fighting in their home. Right, domestically, some form of domestic violence or domestic abuse. And then one person tells the other and that's it. And our work goes on for 40 years and female, hundreds of people are

00:33:49--> 00:34:18

killed because of it. So again, I'm not justifying any of them just telling you how people thought. So anyways, and totally you and I'm in doing him, you are our ally, you're the one whom we depend upon men doing even if not them. And it was never that we never we never needed them, nor did they ever need us. I mean, there was never that relationship between us where they worshipped us, and we were their ally, and they were our ally was never like that and who we've always only worshipped human. We've never been interested in anyone else doing nothing back are scared. You know,

00:34:19--> 00:34:24

do we do something wrong? We've been worshipped by these. It's a very, it's a very subtle

00:34:27--> 00:35:00

signal. message here. Very simple message that needs you have to really dig into it. You see, the Malayaka they never do anything wrong and ever told people they never appear to people and told them to worship them. But Allah subhanaw taala is asking them did they worship you into the back of my neck? Metallica panic when you read what they're saying? It's a full panic the answer makes no sense. Subhanak you know you're exhausted. You think well when I asked you if you were worshipped by these people, today's a pirate know your delta and whether you know you're your ally and that's not them. Why didn't ask you that? I said Did they worship you? But they panic because they're scared

00:35:00--> 00:35:15

They're in trouble for this just like a sound externa when he's asked, and Colton in acid Guney Whoa, meow Yeah, he's been doing it did you? Are you the one who told the people to take you and your mother as Gods instead of me? Because of Hynek my accordingly and accord man No, no I

00:35:17--> 00:35:24

did nothing wrong also has to defend himself in a moment that he, you know, probably no one would want to be in a Saudi

00:35:26--> 00:35:30

place at that moment he has to answer to this question. But what is the central message

00:35:32--> 00:35:32

for leaders

00:35:34--> 00:36:06

understanding that when you're in that position, when you're being led, even if you never ask people to lead you by him, to follow you blindly, or to listen to you blindly. You have to be very aware and very careful that they may be doing it and you have to remind yourself that that's not okay. And you have to come back and talk about it. We'll see almost daily, you'll be asked it's very subtle, very subtle message here. So you did nothing wrong. If they're asked Do you tell them to follow you? No, no. But can we have an agenda? The reality is they were they were worshipping Jin Jin is the symbol of Quran of every bit of superstitious I'd explained this time before. If you remember when

00:36:06--> 00:36:34

we talked about that wouldn't tell you my story. I explained to you whatever Jin comes into this picture, it's always the symbol of everything that is a claim that is unseen. That is to some people superstition magazine that they didn't worship us. Yes, well claim, but it wasn't. It was other superstitious stuff it was getting inside your head and Shawa and hanging our hats and all these other things that they followed. They had a different way of looking at it wasn't us. Federal moonbeam maroon, the majority of them they that's what they believe in? They believe in these things in this type of life, not in us. But they had to defend themselves in the did nothing wrong.

00:36:36--> 00:37:05

No, not at all. No, that's that's the stuff that the subtlety of the message, that they're not accountable for anything. There's no, this is the only a in the Quran that actually brings it up in that form. But they're not held accountable that you're not going to be punished for this. They didn't need to do anything wrong at all. Don't even have the ability to make a mistake. They give them an enka wants to make mistake, they don't have the ability to do so it's not an option. They have options, that's not one of them. Like we have options, one of the options is haram, they don't have that option is taken out y'all like you know, better, more, far better if they can make those

00:37:06--> 00:37:23

choices, we have the choice of doing you know, a lot of garbage, but they don't, they can't make that choice. So for them, but they panic, because they felt that they were being questioned, drilled at a certain moment that they were being followed. So subtle message for everyone who's going to be followed till the Day of Judgment. You may not have, you know,

00:37:24--> 00:38:00

controlled them, you may not have, you know, forced them to do things. But you have to be very aware of your ability to command. And you have to be very aware of how people deal with what you say. And if you're someone that people may take what they say too seriously, then you have to debunk that yourself. And that's the only way I can understand where the profits are they send them in examples like 100, duck, and Haber and the neighborhood for example. And we've been talking about this for a while now. Why? So Sam was very, very cautious. And he made a point not to have manipulate people's opinions. Even though he could, even though he can give a tremendous what he thinks is the best

00:38:00--> 00:38:24

thing to do, then everyone would do whatever he thought was the best thing to do. He made a point of actually changing his plans or the plans or the people or someone else said something just so that it wouldn't be it wouldn't turn into this. You wouldn't turn that he would say something and then people wouldn't do it unless of course it's the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is a different thing. If he gives a command that ALLAH SubhanA gave you will give it openly you'll see there's one Allah spy that said, another example is a really nice example. It's hard to lead.

00:38:25--> 00:38:31

Now how did you study his life, he was an amazing, amazing character, never lost the battle. Even he didn't lose it like

00:38:32--> 00:38:36

spiky never lost a battle always won always won. He was meeting

00:38:38--> 00:39:23

military, military mind, and he was so good that he was able to conquer one of the not one of the strongest empire on the planet Persia at the time with such small numbers of people. Like he just he ran through it, like it was nothing. And everything was falling on his feet. And he was going with 3004 1005 1000 people taking out armies within you know, the 10 1000s and these these stories, you know, became the daily discussion like, you know, at the time, there was no TV or phones or anything. So it just went okay, what it what it's done now. And it turned to myths, and started turning to a myth and he became a myth to the point where one time in Yarmouk where he had finished

00:39:23--> 00:39:31

running Persia, so he came to help with you know, the, the Byzantine or the Byzantine, Byzantines Emperor empire in

00:39:32--> 00:39:51

in Syria and Eastern Europe. So when he came when he came to help out, there's a man who actually came and asked the question, it's an old story, where the Indus Man Of course, it's up to Islam and a long story, but when he came and said, Is that, is it true? I have one question before we have fighting, you might be heard close here. And this is what the

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

Army's talking about. We weren't close here yet. He's here. Can we speak to him so Claude comes out of the room. Is it true that when you take a

00:40:00--> 00:40:21

I need your, your sword. And you go like this. Everyone just you know, you know, it's like Hercules type of thing like something you'd see in like a Marvel comic, and he would just point it and then people would just explode and die. Because like, No. And he tells him, No, you're lying. We very we want to see you to do it, do it to do it to something like they're not telling you to do it. And if I was like, no, she has a sword. And this guy wouldn't believe until he

00:40:22--> 00:40:41

actually gave the man the sword and then spent like five minutes going like seeing and it wasn't working. He's like, I've never done it. He turned into a myth. And then on top, I've heard that this was happening so hard, it didn't lead a battle again. He brought it there was a known moment when Khalid had to give leadership that we were Aveda island

00:40:42--> 00:40:47

with actual machine and how it didn't really object to it at least not fearless.

00:40:49--> 00:41:21

Strongly. Why? Because he understood why. The idea is that you are becoming something beyond what you submission is to Allah subhanaw, not to people, you're becoming more of a myth, you were turning into something beyond human. And that was gonna cause problems. And that's not proper Islamic. That's not proper, that can't be the academy the case, no one's beyond being human. We're all human, no matter who the person is, or what he's saying. He's just a human being just a guy making mistakes, I'll say wrong things. It's part of who I am. Never let anyone. And that's how you have to think about yourself as well. That's how we're supposed to think. So no, You never let anyone become

00:41:21--> 00:41:59

something different in your own mind. And you never let yourself become something like that in other people's minds. And this is a subtle message that exists in sort of the Monica, they did nothing wrong. Nothing at all. They had no fault whatsoever. You'll ask them, Did they? Were they worshipping you? For some reason? Did you do something wrong here, knowing nothing at all. Superstitions? Jim, not US Federal one being the majority of them believing that stuff for Leo millennium the Cabal, the company Bowden, now fine, what out on the bottom line on this day. Neither of you neither of those who were believed in or submitted to knows those who are submit, who's to

00:41:59--> 00:42:06

actually sit did this submission. So these two parties that had the improper relationship, and improperly something was wrong,

00:42:07--> 00:42:22

or submission was given and it's only given to Allah subhanaw taala and not given to others, neither of you will own or have to offer to the other party, no fun benefit will Allah or harm, you cannot benefit each other, neither can nor can you harm each other on the Day of Judgment,

00:42:23--> 00:42:40

meaning your will piano those that were really had that improper relationship will be taken away from one another, and you won't be able to communicate, you won't be able to benefit that person, nor are you able to harm them. And everyone has to carry their own responsibility themselves. And it's a very, I find it to be a scary

00:42:41--> 00:42:42

crime that reminds us.

00:42:44--> 00:42:59

You have to be aware even of the indirect consequences of how you have how you behave, even if you didn't mean something to happen. If there's a high possibility of it happening. You have to pay attention to that. And you have to be aware that you may be asked, What did he say and do to be asked?

00:43:01--> 00:43:35

And you'll be asking I'm looking at is recorded in detail in depth this recorded one of the most heart breaking ideas in the Quran is that last part when he says question and the way he has answered the prophets, I send them when he came to the end of it, he couldn't stop reading that last few verses he spent spent the whole night into the room and Omega went up when he kept on reciting and crying until until federal he was moved by this moment that he said he said I was going to be questioned about something he had nothing to do with that he taught the opposite of what he was questioned about. It wasn't accountable. He was questioned. The questioning part is hard as well.

00:43:35--> 00:43:36

The minute a core question here.

00:43:37--> 00:44:03

Did you do something to make these people follow you blindly? Because obviously they submitted to someone else besides me. They didn't listen to what I had to say. I taught them they didn't listen. So it was it you? Were you the reason that they follow you? Did you notice that they were following you? Because you can say well, I didn't force them. They just followed me. Yeah, but you saw them follow you. Right? You did. And you shouldn't have looked that up. And you should have said something say No, you shouldn't do the Prophet Solomon did the same thing. He came one day he saw people they were taking they would take

00:44:04--> 00:44:30

their palm trees and they would shake pumping so that the male palm T would do the pollen would move to the other palm tree. So the Prophet SAW Selim comes from Mecca. They don't do that stuff that you don't have. He's not a farmer. He doesn't you know, you know, he's gonna like he understands Oh, animals, but he doesn't understand how you know, agriculture works. So he's looking at he says, oh, no, we envy I don't think that works. And people stopped doing it immediately. And they had no harvest that year. So they came to him sighs everything else but Allah we didn't do it.

00:44:31--> 00:45:00

For Carla, Hula, hula compiler, Allah did I tell you that Allah said this? Coca Cola compile Allah Who will call you when am I never sure. If I don't tell you Allah said this is just me speaking and I'm just a guy. I'm just a human being. I will say you know, I have conversations with you. I say I wonder about stuff. I know we talk about things. I see someone trying to fix his car. I kind of take a look. I don't think that's the right way of doing it. This is not Quran and Sunnah. There's nothing I just my opinion. I'm wrong. I don't understand cars, but I'll say something because we know that

00:45:00--> 00:45:21

So we have the professor selling the same thing walks by he says something, for example to the compiler, Allah filter ximo. But if I tell you Allah says, then you stand by, you do exactly what I tell you, because I will tell you what he says to pay, I'll teach you. But if I say something, I'm just talking about things. So you need to do this lesson and many times explain to people that you even himself, is that we were taught that you never

00:45:22--> 00:45:30

raised the prophets I send them is positioned higher than then being the grant best of creation, but never to, to a creators. Level. Yes.

00:45:34--> 00:45:46

Yeah, so So when those words come into play, that's when he says, God, Allah subhanho wa taala. So when he teaches us what Allah says, He never says, hola. He never says anything that's important. In proper you never mix things up. So

00:45:48--> 00:46:22

it's always what he you have. But when he's talking, normally talking as a person, and he talked about this many times in the sea, you'll find many a hadith that will support you know, support the same simple concept. And in the mind of a shot. I speak, I speak like I have conversations with you. And what he's not human selected me can sit down. Imagine, imagine if he couldn't, what type of life is that, that if he opens his mouth is going to turn into immediately. He can he can, he can talk to his wife, they get to joke with his friends. He can, it's very hard to live like that. But the father had to learn because it's normally happens. It happens we can, we can raise people over a

00:46:22--> 00:46:33

certain certain degree. It's our job not to do that. And it's the job of the people who think that may be happening, to me at least stop it, or else you're milking them or have them in a car questioned

00:46:34--> 00:47:05

them as a human being could have made a mistake that he didn't, right. But they don't have access to mistakes, they don't access to actually do something wrong. And there'll be question as well, anyone, because you're not supposed to accept that you're not supposed to accept anyone following you blindly. You shouldn't accept anyone listening to you without questioning everything you say. You have to remind people that you question what I have to say to think about it for yourself. That's your gesture duty. And that's, there's a subtle message that I find in this. That's very scary to me. Because it's a higher level, it's a different level of accountability. It's not just

00:47:05--> 00:47:34

accountability of what you do, or what you say. It's also if you notice something going wrong, that you could somehow be a part of that you need to need to speak up and say something about it, even if it's only going to harm other people, not you, even if you're not gonna be accountable for it, if you can see it, and if you can identify the need to speak up, because Allah subhanaw taala gave you that level of intelligence to see and to observe and to recognize why aren't you using it? Do you accept you accept others being submitted to besides Allah subhanaw taala we shouldn't actually do for you to be Subhanak only you you're a widow exalted when you're the only one who shouldn't be

00:47:34--> 00:47:41

submitted to all of us should not no one should own that. No one should have that power. That's a scary power to have.

00:47:42--> 00:47:50

It's also always be something different something something that Allah Subhan Allah commanded us to have in the deen not beyond the to Allah data item.

00:47:51--> 00:48:27

Video Mulayam liquid autocomplete Ballina found while Dora you will not own for each other on this day, those who followed and submitted to others and those who accepted the submission of others, you will not offer them benefits you will not offer them harm when a poorly Latina vulnerable and we will say to those who oppressed the oppressors, whether the oppression was physical towards others, or the oppression was actual, actually individual to that to oneself. See, an oppressor doesn't have to necessarily oppress another person, you can impress yourself by submitting yourself to someone else besides Allah subhanaw taala He created you on a certain level where your neffs should never

00:48:27--> 00:48:45

submit to anyone but his will. You're not supposed to submit it to something less than his will Subhana wa Tada that's that's bringing yourself down that says you're oppressing your own self right now. You're not giving an it's worth it's worth that it's only submits to Allah subhanaw taala no one else so when the deen of Allah widows oppressed did it all wrong? We will fly that have been

We explained to Michelle before the end of time, where to play him tonight the unit and the reality of the matter during duniya. Now this is a kind of rewinding back to it showed us a moment of yomo piano where some were followed blindly, and we're going to be asked about that, even the small accountability regarding that and that how reminder that your Malkia whether you were followed or follow, or you were following, following others, that whatever you chose to do, that's really gonna be held accountable for you cannot blame others for your choices that you made. Even if you're a follower, even if you never had access to leadership, even you were manipulated, you still are going

00:51:46--> 00:52:11

to be held accountable for your choices, that's a reminder of that, that we recited, and then it rewinds back to dunya. We that took him to the unit and during the time of dunya, when we recited upon them, our signs or our verses, maybe not clear, as clear as crystal, we clarified to them and cleared out for them are signs the signs of Allah subhanaw taala were the verses of the Quran either way, here it works either way,

00:52:13--> 00:52:37

when that all came to them, and they got to hear from the Prophet SAW, sent him his message, and it was made clear to them by the what did they say? Oh, so these are three things. These are the three common answers that societies will the comeback of societies when you bring forward a new idea, or an idea that will challenge the status quo, or an idea that has the ability to actually change how people function and bring forward some positive

00:52:41--> 00:52:41


00:52:50--> 00:53:25

Trade if he answers the first one, audible Matt, hi there. Roger, do you read when you're so dumb, and mechanic, there's only a man who wants to deny you from worshipping or following the ways of your father's before you. So the first answer is always that this is just changing our norms. We've never been like, this is not these aren't our traditions. These aren't our ways. So whenever you come with a whenever a new idea is presented, specifically ideas that will challenge the status quo, the first thing that people will bring up is that this is not our traditions. This is not what we are our forefathers were like, This is not how people before us, and even, it doesn't matter what

00:53:25--> 00:54:02

the idea is, it doesn't matter what part of what your dad did, or your fathers did, it's challenging. Just the fact that it's challenging. Something that is traditional and historical to you is enough to end it. And that's never a good argument. It's never things aren't evil, because they're new. If your criteria for not accepting something is that it's just new. That's that's some we'll see. But that's a huge problem. New is not a it has to be the opt out more than that you have to be able to to argue against this, this idea in a more logical rational way. But this will always what it is. People are driven by that. Immigrants come to a country and they're bringing something

00:54:02--> 00:54:33

different. There's not what we've always been like, is different type of food different type of dressing different relatively speaking, there's not what we were used to and suddenly becomes us against them and it becomes why because they just something that was new. Not that's not we're not we're not used to this. It's not how our forefathers thought and what our forefathers said, Well, maybe in the qualify anybody who's Oh, kinda about whom I ask you to do. And so one of the questions the clan brings up in a different surah is you're saying what my dad didn't do it. My father didn't did it. My forefathers did. It didn't do it. Well, you ever had the ever maybe, you know, question

00:54:33--> 00:54:50

or wonder maybe maybe your forefathers didn't really know much. Maybe they weren't very, you know, scientific and didn't have much guidance. Maybe you shouldn't be following them to begin with. Maybe fate. It was all wrong. Maybe they'll make that as a possibility that maybe what they did was wrong. It's hard. By the way, when you grew up, you know.

00:54:52--> 00:54:59

traditionalism has has a lot of beautiful aspects to it. It holds on to cultures, but it has a lot of setbacks as well.

00:55:00--> 00:55:28

There's always that balance between, you know, holding on to the good and kind of letting go of the bad. But if you don't do it, well, the next generation will get rid of everything. Right? If you if you bring it as a package, everything has to be held on to your children who are growing up different society will look at this back and you say, Well, I don't there's a lot of garbage here. Maybe there's not a lot of garbage, I mean a bit, but you're not willing to give up that little amount of it. So I don't want it so they throw everything away. And then you and then you, you look at your children, and you look at your grandchildren, the next generation, the completely

00:55:28--> 00:56:00

disconnected associate the associating with with what you were why, and the reason is because you just refused to look at what was traditionally what you lose to and the proper eye, parts of it are good and perfect parts of it aren't. And that's okay. There's nothing wrong. Don't blame your forefathers for making mistakes. They're human. Again, they're human, they're supposed to make mistakes. If you break, if you take everything that they did, then you're doing what we just talked about a second ago, you're following a group of people blindly questioning what they're doing. That's not how we're supposed to be. And of course, they made mistakes. Of course, scholars have

00:56:00--> 00:56:32

said things that were wrong in the first cards or is not perfect, because it's human based efforts. And there's going to be things there that are flawed, and we need to me to look into doesn't mean if we look into it, we question it doesn't mean that we only respect them, to me, we will love them, and we're willing to be hope to be with them. Even you'll milk out of it. But we have to, it's our job. It's our job to squid. So the first thing they said my mother in law, Giuliani's just a guy who kind of was challenging the ways of your forefathers. So anything that was anything that is new, we need to get rid of second thing, Ricardo, Maya, if God moved around, then looking at the Sunnah, so

00:56:32--> 00:56:37

that's just dealing with a message that is going to challenge the status quo. Now the other part of the message is that it's

00:56:39--> 00:57:20

it actually has a full way of life, it's actually being related to a deity. It's not something that is just human based. And that's problematic, because it's a difference way if this book was written by a person, it was the effort of a person or this effort, or this is the word of Allah subhanaw taala. When you weigh it out, it's not it's not going to be looked at the same way. So if means lies, lies that have literally no basis to that's why when the last of our talks about the acute accusation that would have been made against it, Chateau de la Hoya and what he used in Edina Joe Bill iski. Also, to me, is the worst type of lie. It's the it's, you know, actually smoke without a

00:57:20--> 00:57:55

fire, like there's nothing, it's a complete lie that it couldn't move over. So lies that were invented out of nothing. There will be no question the the credibility of what you brought me the question the authenticity of what you have to know. So first of all, there are a few is just out of fact that it's new, because not it's telling the status quo. And then they'll question the authenticity of it, but go after maybe it's all made up, maybe he's bringing it from a different source, maybe this is something that is going to be used, so that, you know, to ruin to ruin, the good way of life is going to take away our freedom, right, he heard that take away our freedom to

00:57:55--> 00:58:40

take away our you know, our flourishing economy. If couldn't move, it's something that has known as no authenticity has no credibility. The third thing that they said, Nakata, Lavina kufr, will help them Mojo. Remember this believers, what they said to truth, when it was when it came to them in her industry, homophobia, this is nothing but clear. Sell Sahara, you can use the word magic, but it's also a poor translation. So what is basically all that that is superstitious. All that that is understood, or an explained by rationale and logic, what you can't explain scientifically or based on observation. So the third thing that they'll say, when you bring them an idea that is a new

00:58:40--> 00:59:16

message that will actually change the way people think and change society. The first thing is that it's just new. That's enough. It's changing our tradition. So we don't want it. Second thing they'll question is authenticity and the accused of lying by sources. And the third thing is that feel attached to some level of superstition of of it being a source of bad luck, or it being something that we cannot, we don't, we can't explain this, we don't have the ability to understand it. It seems weird. It looks like it doesn't really fit the way that we think we don't really know the good, the good and the bad of it. And that's what these are the things that was used against the

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

prophets license. And we brought the Quran these are the three things that they talked about. They use against them, these three, these are the three cannonballs that they threw at the prophets, like every time he said something, either you're going against our forefathers or your own forefathers, you're going against himself. Or what you're doing is made up everything you're saying is made up, or what you're doing is going to have bad consequences. It's going to bring upon us, it's going to jinx us, it's going to bring us bad luck. It's something that we don't seem to understand properly. We don't really know. And we're not willing to actually make a change for it. And here's what he did

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

to deal with some advice. And then if you look at history, you look at people who brought ideas forward to this society, even if they're not prophets, you will find that they were always dealt with in the same way. It's the same type of asset maybe the words were different, but the concepts or the or the or the basis of these answers.

01:00:00--> 01:00:02

Always the same, only the same three ideas will be brought forward

01:00:03--> 01:00:05

in the movie.

01:00:06--> 01:00:09

And when we talk about and so it's about talks about submission of societies.

01:00:11--> 01:00:46

This is one of the points of the points that the source is going to end with, is that you can't refuse what's given to you based with these three bases. I mean, you cannot refuse what's being said to you, based on the fact that it's not what you're used to. It's what your dad did, or based on the fact that you just you're not sure if it's authenticity, or you want to question his credibility, you're gonna go after even assassinate the character or assassinate the, or the fact that it just you don't fully understand it right now. Or it's not fully clear to you, it can't be one of these three things, you can't use that if you don't like an idea that's being presented, then you have to

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

have better than that, you have to have more than that in order for you to refuse it. But, but most societies don't. And in the status that we're living in right now, the state that we have right now, and I think this is important, that we're not really functioning that Well, I think if you are to argue

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

against that, then probably very delusional or delusional about what's happening. So we're not functioning that well. We do need ideas that are fresh, we don't need people to come with it may be a bit of a different way of looking at things, we need that, and they will get the same pushback me when they do the same, but what will happen, they will be accused of changing the way the forefathers thought they'd be achieved will be questioned their credibility, authenticity, they'll be told that this is all superstition is not making sense, and we don't understand it. So we don't want it. They're going to hear that, but they still have to do it. And this is why this is part of

01:01:32--> 01:01:33

this build up to this.

01:01:34--> 01:02:04

The last year I just kind of end with a bit of a threat or a warning. When I say no to being a DRO soon and the people of Arabia at the time when they said all this to the prophets I said them, we never sent them books beforehand. They didn't have like a book that they could base this on didn't need me didn't have a Book from Allah Subhanallah they can say what yo yo Mohamed, you're bringing something against what Allah Subhan told us, they had nothing, they had no reason to refuse this. Maybe had nothing that they could do to help me study. They were never given books, holy books to study beforehand for them to say, well, you're doing something against what we have evidence of

01:02:04--> 01:02:35

Allah subhanaw taala amongst us they had nothing well now sending it to him probably like a mini deal. And we never sent to them a warning or a messenger before you because they're living in poverty and the people before you Yeah, Muhammad, they refuse to believe their profit profits as well. Well Marbella who Michelle on to him, and the people that are refusing to listen to you don't have a 10th of the strength of the people before them did because the Buddha was to be in the people before refused to listen to their profits for Keifa current in the queue, and how did things end for them and then you you're sent back to sort of do the story of separate that exists in the Surah.

01:02:35--> 01:02:40

I'll elaborate that on that a bit and show on the next not next week, but the week after inshallah after mother's apocalyptic
