Welcome to the program, Islam insight, a very special series essentially dedicated for a new Muslim brothers and sisters, how do we commit ourselves to gain knowledge regarding Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him? I'd like to know is he job co compulsory for him? Somebody told me that a Muslim is not allowed to have relationship with a non Muslim knowledge revives the spirit of Islam.
My worry now is how do we abstain from involving shark? That's an excellent question. You see, when you see the danger,
when you see there is something absolutely destructive. You try to protect yourself. And the ways to abstain from schilke is number one, commit yourself to don't
commit yourself to the heat. And we have learned what is the rain, believing in the strict monotheism of Allah subhanaw taala believing that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah in His Lordship, there is no one worthy of worship except Allah in His names and attributes, believing that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah in His divinity and worship. So, first and foremost, commit yourself to read and that will help you to abstain from check number one, number two, understand the gravity of the sin,
understand the gravity of this sin, that is, should you see when you see a fire,
you know, a nearby you will reach there will you approach there, if the fire is there in front of your eyes, the fire is right there we go and reach we approach it you will never so when you know that is a shark is nothing but fire because it leads to jahannam and the dynamism fire. When you know the gravity of it, the severity of it, you will do your best to abstain from
when you walk on a very sensitive path, you do all the precautions you make all the efforts in order that you may protect yourself. And this is the same thing or even the most important thing, the way for you to be aware of terrain, you need to be aware of silk as well. You need to be aware of the severity of ship, you need to be aware that there is no aboard there is no rescue, there is no refuge if you commit shark. So second thing is you need to make sure that you realize the gravity of it. Number three, do the acts of the righteous people.
Like for example, the first and foremost example for us to follow is Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and then the companions of Prophet sallallahu wasallam all these righteous people, they help us to realize that this act of shirk is the most heinous crime against Allah it is the most big insult to end human intelligence, it is the most senseless belief. When you know these things, you will try to abstain from this also there is another way to abstain from shark is that you
keep a barrier between you and shark and that is taqwa. That is God consciousness, achieved God consciousness within you. The fear of Allah, the love of Allah, you love Allah so much that you can never afford to associate partner with Allah, you fear Allah subhanaw taala The more that you are absolutely scared that if you worship anyone with ALLAH, you will be out
there in hellfire. So this love of Allah will will help you to keep yourself away from sugar. And this fear of Allah will help you to abstain from sugar. So these are the ways that you can abstain from the worst act. And that is should hope that answers your questions. Yes, brother. Oh boy, you talked about the consequences of practicing silic as one of the Hellfire Can you give us other more consequences, like when your practice will show the consequence of shock as we have said very explicitly, Allah Subhana Allah mentions in whom you should a biller for Cunha Rama la hora.
Jana, whoever associate partner with Allah, He is designed for Hellfire Jana will be haram for him. So what is left for him jahannam if Paradise is forbidden for him What is left the Hellfire, right. So this is the big consequence that a person face if you commit ship, number two, the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala will be taken from him.
Allah subhanaw taala will take away his mercy from that person who commits Schick and this week could find even among the Muslims. And the Muslims must be cautioned and must be aware and must be conscious about this grave sin in any form in any matter in any way. Right. So the second consequences Allah subhanaw taala will remove the mercy from that person who commits Shrek. The third consequence is that our life will be unrest. A person who does ship internally, psychologically, he will live the life absolutely unrest. Because you see if you don't have believe in a las panatela. And on the contrary, as opposed to believe in Allah, you commit schilke then your
mind will always be unstable. Your heart will always be unrest, you will always be lost. Even though even though you might have the best of the cars that you want, even though you might have the great wealth, you might have the big Villa, you might have the great mansion, you might have everything that you want in this world, but the Sakina the satisfaction, the contentment, the the serenity, the peace, the tranquility, that any human being would like to have at the cost of anything that will be lost in that purse, because that comes from a loss penalty that comes to only that person who believes in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the third consequences that his heart will be unrest,
because it will be away from the belief of Allah subhanho wa Taala and these are the consequences which are not easy. These are not fictions, this is reality, you will see a millionaire or a billionaire, he also commit suicide, however, ask why he has bungalow he has cars to to drive, he has beautiful mansion to live, he has everything of this world, but it still he commits suicide, because he does not have the greatest treasure in this word. And that is satisfaction.
You see a person if he's not satisfied internally, no matter how much value that you give him, no matter how much you know, any other materialistic things that you might give him, he will not accept it. Or even if you accept, he will again, miss something which is very most important ingredient. And that is peace in his mind, peace in his heart, peace in his life that will be lost as a consequence of committing Schick.
These are the consequences again, my brothers, which we need to take heed on which we need to understand that these things are not for us to listen and forget. These are the things that we need to make sure that we goes deep down in our heart and we should abstain from this act of
shirk, to our lives, so that we may understand the pleasure from Allah subhanaw taala, we may expect and hope the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala so that we may attain the good in this life and the hereafter. These are the consequences of schilke my brothers that we face and an encounter when we do or commit shirk, with Allah subhanho wa Taala that is associating partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Do you brothers and sisters, this whole session was talking about the greatest, the most heinous crime against Allah subhanaw taala and that is shift associating partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala. We've mentioned
that the incentive the compensation
of committing schicke is nothing but hellfire. And even in this world, as we were mentioned, of a person commits check, number one, he is being ungrateful to illustrata number two, the peace within him his his life will be lost. Number three, he will be away from
the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. Number four,
his life will be unrest.
If he has this great climb in his life that should we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to help us.
Stick to tauheed that is oneness of Allah. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us abstain and abandon this great crime. Should
we ask Allah Subhana Allah subhanho wa Taala We ask Allah subhanaw taala that let our last breath be
on the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala I would like to end my talk
with an ayah
from Surah Surah number 13 is number 99 in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says Wormwood, Rebecca Hata Yachty aka Loki, worship your Lord until certainty comes to you until that comes to you. Never get involved in Shrek.
But make sure that you are in the bush in the slavery of Allah subhanho wa Taala alone
and in hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen
