00:00:00--> 00:00:11

Salam Lama alumna million farewell and finally my Olympian I was in Illman Rabbil Alameen Lama in the cricket shoe Cricket was named by the tick a My bad.

00:00:12--> 00:00:31

So last we've talked about was the Quran. As remember Metra hemma Allah mentioned being the actual speech and words of Allah azza wa jal that Allah spoke the Quran, and is the literal word of Allah azza wa jal.

00:00:33--> 00:01:21

And before we conclude this topic in sha Allah, I want to just mention a couple of things. One is the implication of the belief that the Quran is created, which is the wrong belief, what are the implications of that belief? And why did Imam Muhammad and other ima before during and after oppose that belief, so strongly mentioned to implications in the law Zoda. Now also, we'll conclude by talking about the fruits of believing that the Quran is the actual speech of Allah azza wa jal, the actual root word of Allah. Now, what do we get from that? Once we believe that? So the implications The first we talked about one implication before I'll just re emphasize that, which is that if a

00:01:21--> 00:01:29

someone believes that Allah azza wa jal did not speak the Quran, it stems from the fact that they believe that Allah does not speak

00:01:31--> 00:02:14

right that Allah azza wa jal does not have the ability to speak and although in their heads, they are trying to Innocence free Allah of all imperfections, because they believe that speaking is an imperfection that does not fit the divine and that speaking belongs to the created realme. Not to Allah azza wa jal, so they're in their minds, they're thinking that speaking is an imperfection we mentioned that not speaking is the imperfection being viewed as an imperfection. Whereas Allah Zota is speaking as he makes it abundantly clear in the Quran, that he talks to his servants and they talk to him. And that in the Sunnah, also it is made abundantly clear that Allah spoke to His

00:02:14--> 00:03:01

prophets, and they talked to him and God will speak to people, on the day of judgment and in Jannah. So all of that tells you that Allah azza wa jal can speak. So that is a point of perfection. But in their minds, they're saying, No, this is an imperfection. The implication of that is that as we said, last time, when us begin to strip Allah of his qualities, Allah becomes to look less and less of an involved God that is close to his creation, less than less of a God that worries about his creation and knows about them, and begins to approach the God of the philosopher's the God of the philosopher's is a distant God, the God of the deist, also, the D is so believed that God created,

00:03:01--> 00:03:49

but then he let go of the universe, he's not responsible for it does not direct, it doesn't guide it, sort of like you wind the clock, and you will let it work on its own. So God is not involved in creation, he just created it, and set it and let it go. So he's distant. So when God is distant, when God doesn't speak to you, when God doesn't know about you, when God does not guide you what God does not answer your DUA. are you likely to be connected to such a God? No, are you likely to be guided by such a God in your life, you're very distant from him. So the God of the philosophers is a very distant, impersonal, impersonal God, that does not dictate guide life on Earth. So it for the

00:03:49--> 00:04:09

philosopher's there's a God, but he's so distant that we will think for ourselves what to do and how to live. So they get to do what we believe. But at the same time, that belief is not really impactful. It doesn't change, it doesn't guide whereas the believers,

00:04:10--> 00:04:48

firmly believe in a God that is a personal God, personal God and then sense of what a God who knows about you the most intimate feelings that you have, Allah knows about it. What are you going to do tomorrow? Allah knows about it, Allah can protect you from the bad and guide you to the good, right? Allah has power over you, Allah azza wa jal records the bad things that you do so then you will watch out for any bad thing that you do different from a God who doesn't know. So he knows about the thing bad things that you do, and he will ask you about them knows about the good things that you do rewards you for them. So you're always connected to Allah azza wa jal, and if you know that Allah is

00:04:48--> 00:05:00

the Creator, He speaks and his speech is in the Quran, you will see guidance from it. It begins to influence you. So the implication is that denying Allah's ability

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

to speak, is a gateway to denying Allah has other attributes, other SIFAT other qualities, and ultimately having God being something that you will place on a mantle. It's decorative, right, but it does not affect you. So that's the God of the philosopher's or the God of the deists. Better than the atheist, but still, it's not the accurate belief. So that's one implication. The other implication Allahu Allah is what happens if a person believes that the words of the Quran, the speech that is found in the Quran, are not actually the words of Allah azza wa jal, but the words of Jibreel are the words of Muhammad Ali salatu salam, the meaning coming from ALLAH, but they are the

00:05:45--> 00:06:25

words of Jabril, or the words of Muhammad, they immediately lose what in your eyes, perfection and sanctity, they're not as miraculous, right? Because when they when you know that they have come from Allah azza wa jal, that's very different than if they've come from a human being, even if that human being is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Or if you say they came from Gibreel, so it's not perfect, it's not as miraculous, and it's not as sacred begins to lose its sanctity. So these are the words of a human being, then they could be altered a little bit, they could be moved a little bit, they don't need, they lose their excellence, that if you say this, Allah spoke this, versus a

00:06:25--> 00:07:14

human being, they lose their excellence. So there is also that idea is that if you strip the Quran, of its sanctity, no matter what, whether they intended to do this or not, but ultimately, that's what it leads to. If you strip the Quran of its sanctity, it's easier to misinterpret. And it's easier to dismiss. And it's easier to say that if this contradicts my mind, then I'll give precedence to it. My mind, because both of them are created. And if this is only in meaning, meaning the meaning is from Allah, but it was expressed by a human being, you could also ascribe flaws to the expression because ultimately it comes from a human being, unlike it coming from Allah as

00:07:14--> 00:07:57

origin. So if it comes from Allah, it's perfect. If it comes from human being all maybe could have expressed this way or that way, the meaning as some people will say, the spirit of the Quran right? So when they talk about the spirit of the Quran, they say this because they want to ignore what the letter right the letter of the Quran says this, But see, but the Spirit says something else, so that you can speak and you have a contradiction between a meaning that they will say that's divine, and words that they will say are not divine. So they could be reinterpreted or bypassed in certain search of what the meaning the in depth what Allah wanted from all of that. So it's trips the Quran,

00:07:57--> 00:08:08

if it's sanctity, and when that happens, then the mind could overtake it. Right? And it's interesting Subhanallah I mean that Allah azza wa jal had condemned,

00:08:09--> 00:08:15

saying that the Quran are the words of a human being. Were in use in Surah Al Madatha.

00:08:16--> 00:08:56

UCLA in her illness, her youth are in her Illa Kowloon Bashar. So one of the disbelievers when arguing against the Quran and the the conclusion of that he had reached was, this is what magic that had been inherited. This is only the saying of a human being. Then Allah azza wa jal says what sort of sleazy soccer, I'll put them in Hellfire for that. Now, of course that disbeliever was saying about the Quran that this is what a fabrication is all magic. And it's only the saying of a human being those who are saying that the Quran has created they're not exactly saying that they're not saying that it's magic, or it's completely fabricated. They're saying it is from Allah azza wa jal,

00:08:57--> 00:09:04

but they're ultimately are also saying that it is what created or the words of a human being, right. So there is a match between the two

00:09:05--> 00:09:31

a difference but also a match. So we're not saying that those who are saying that the Quran is created, all of them are going to be in hellfire? No, we're not saying this. But at the same time, we're saying that this is a very dangerous thing to say. And not many people say it today among the Muslim masses, not really. But it's enough to know that Muhammad Muhammad Rahim, Allah and many of the seller, they said that the person who says the Quran is created is a catheter.

00:09:32--> 00:09:43

Right? Why is that because it contradicts the Quran and contradicts the Sunnah very clearly, and there is no room for what misinterpretation or misunderstanding

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

though they said this general statement, they didn't come to every person who said that the Quran is created and that said, your cafe and your cafe and your cafe. Because it's so important to remember this. There is a difference between a general statement that whoever says

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

So and so is a Kaffir and a specific application of that on particular individuals, right? So not every person who says a statement of disbelief is a Kaffir.

00:10:12--> 00:10:57

Why is that? Because that person could be ignorant, and he needs to be taught. And only after teaching him, you say, Okay, now you know, and now you have no excuse. So you have to remove a person's excuses, before you conclude that the person is a Kaffir. A person could be ignorant, he could be compelled, he could have doubts, he could have this and that. So the general statement is that whoever says this is a Kaffir is valid. When you come to apply it to specific individuals, you cannot just apply it wholesale, whoever I hear saying this, or doing this is Kaffir until you ascertain that he has no excuses. And he has knowledge, and then ultimately, right. So that's why

00:10:57--> 00:11:14

they said, humble Rahimullah, though he said that statement, he did not come to the whole effort at that time. Who were champions of that saying and say, You're a careful and you're a Kaffir, and you're a Catholic, right? In fact, you know, he said, I forgive them for what they have done to me,

00:11:16--> 00:11:45

which is a very noble thing actually to do. After all of this and all the harm that they've done. You say, I forgive them when it comes to what they've done to me, it means he did not see them as kofod Why didn't he see them as Kufa because they needed to be taught and they needed to be presented with evidence. So it's important right from that application that he had Rahim Allah to distinguish between a general statement of whoever says this is a Kaffir versus what the actual person who says it and whether they deserved that statement or not. Okay.

00:11:46--> 00:12:35

Now, we finished with this and we move on to the next thing that he talks about Rahim Allah, and he says here will Ema noburo et al. Mulki am i Believing in seeing Allah on the day of judgment came out who we are and in Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Amina hadith is a ha as it has been reported from the Prophets Allah Azza wa sallam he is saying in many authentic hadith, meaning supporting the belief that Allah will be seen when on the Day of Judgment, excellent. And he says when the Nebia Katara araba he says and that the prophets Allah Allah wa salam had seen his Rob has seen Allah for in the home at full on ad Rasul Allah he saw he says, It has been reported from the prophets of

00:12:35--> 00:13:19

Allah Azza wa salam, and it is authentic and we'll come to this insha Allah to tell you why he had said this and what is the more accurate belief about this he says, reported from a Tada upon from a crema all the way to ignore a bass and from so on, so from a crema to ignore a bass and so on, so to ignore a bass and then he says, What Hadith or indena Allah Lahiri and this hadith, according to us, we accepted according Amin in accordance with what it says meaning we do not misinterpret reinterpret, but we believe it exactly as it says apparent meaning is as how we interpreted cambogia Anna Nabhi Well, Kayla Murphy, Hebei and he says an argument against it is a bit okay, doubting it

00:13:19--> 00:14:05

is a bit ah, well, I can not mean we'll be here but we believe in it can Majah Alaba hurry as the apparent words indicate whether or not we will be hit harder and we do not debate anyone about it. That is the belief is so clear that we do what believe in it. But don't debate. Why don't we debate? There is no room for debate. What do you debate if this is authentic from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So going back to it well Eman, ob ro iati, Yeoman piano. Now why does he emphasize a himolla that this is a belief that we should have and that is the belief in a sunnah is because just like with the Quran, there are people who deny that Allah will be seen on the Day of Judgment

00:14:06--> 00:14:15

for the same exact reasons for the same exact reasons. So let's first talk about that belief in the Quran that belief in the Sunnah

00:14:16--> 00:14:22

and then move on to talk about the reasons of why they denied it and why this actually does not hold. So

00:14:24--> 00:14:59

Allah azza wa jal tells us in the Quran, whoo hoo Yo Ma e the Nadira, Isla or Bihar now the euro. So faces that will be on the Day of Judgment, you know, pleasant, either or up behind now there are looking at its Lord looking at Allah has Zodac at its run, and the construction the Arabic construction here tells you clearly that they will be looking at Allah azza wa jal Lydian axonal Husna was iada to those who have committed husana They will have husana which is Jana was he had and something additional

00:15:00--> 00:15:22

What is this additional thing? Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the Hadith that is authentic looking upon the face of Allah as his origin, looking upon the face of Allah subhanho wa taala. Also the messenger SallAllahu wasallam said in many a hadith, it says you will see Allah on the day of judgment as you will see the sun and the moon. You will not be

00:15:23--> 00:16:05

discomforted, do you are you? Do you experience any discomfort while looking at the sun or while looking at the moon meaning that there's enough space for all of you to see it without you cramming each other. So it says this is how you will see Allah azza wa jal meaning all of you will have a chance to look upon Allah as Odin as easily as you could see the sun and as it is like as you can see the moon. And what did the Sahaba understand from that, that they will see Allah on the day of judgment and that they will see Allah as urgent in Jannah. In other Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Allah Allah will ask the people of Jana Walcher, what shall I give you? Do you

00:16:05--> 00:16:45

want more? Do you want this? Do you on that? And they say, Oh Allah, you've given us everything until we couldn't ask for anything else. So the hijab, the barrier between them and Allah azza wa jal will be lifted, and they will be able to look upon the face of Allah azza wa jal and Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said, that nothing that they have been given will be better than looking upon the face of ALLAH SubhanA who were to Allah that that is the greatest joy that we have in Jana. Right? So multiple a hadith one after the other indicate that the believers will see Allah azza wa jal on the day of judgment and we'll see Allah in paradise in Jana. So much so that the scholars have said

00:16:45--> 00:17:11

this is mutawa till this is there is so many that have narrated this, that it is absolutely true with certainty, that Allah who will be seen on the day of judgment. And similar to the statement that we made about the Quran, that or whoever says that it's created is a Kaffir. They have also said, the set of those who deny that Allah will be seen on the Day of Judgment is a Kaffir.

00:17:12--> 00:17:51

Why is why is that it's not that because they like to make tech fear to people, or we just want to dismiss people out of Islam, but they want to do what, God the borders of Islam by saying, Do you know how many people narrated this? Do you know how firmly This is established in the Quran and the Sunnah? How clear this is, how many people believed in it until peep some people came, some innovators came and started to dispute all of that. That's why they said Be very careful not to reject such a belief, because it's a very important belief. And again, if someone can question a belief that strong and that clear in the Quran and the Sunnah, what are the chance other beliefs

00:17:51--> 00:18:08

have? Okay? If something is weaker than this, and this is we said, it's mutawatir. So many people mentioned the trauma Sahaba and then a Tabea in and so on, and so on and so on. So if you could question this, other things that are still authentic, but not as strong as this one can be dismissed.

00:18:10--> 00:18:53

So these now Bruce, and toward the foundations, if you dare to Trent transgress and deny this, then you're evidently upon shaking grounds in Islam because the methodology that you are following, and establishing right and wrong is completely flooded? How do you interpret the Quran? How do you interpret the Sunnah? How do you interpret each map? If you're willing to dismiss all of this, what remains of your Islam? That's why they were so adamant about these beliefs are really important, in addition to the fact also that it is really relevant on the day of judgment and also in Jannah, that a person will be able to look upon the face of Allah as urgent, it says so as has been reported by

00:18:53--> 00:19:08

the Prophet sallallahu wasallam in many authentic hadith in an additional one, in the concept around Arabic come Ayana, you will see Allah azza wa jal physically meaning with your own eyes i Anna is with your eyes, that you will able to witness it.

00:19:10--> 00:19:31

As it will become later you know that you will speak Allah to Allah azza wa jal directly, okay, we'll talk about that later. Inshallah. So, it's important also to keep in mind as it's looking, that people will be able to see Allah on the Day of Judgment. First of all, people do not see Allah azza wa jal in the dunya.

00:19:32--> 00:19:52

Right. And that's an important belief also to have, that humans don't have the ability to see Allah azza wa jal in the dunya but they have it in the ephemera. And why do we know this? Because Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself said in the comb lenta or Birkenhead determine moto he says, You will not see Allah as certain until you die.

00:19:54--> 00:19:59

So no one can claim that they have seen Allah xojo And that link could be true

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

While there, what? A life. All right? No one can claim that they've seen Allah as though did so no one can see Allah zodion Why they are alive, but you see it on the Day of Judgment. Now there is a benefit to this because someone could say, why is it that Allah had concealed himself from views in the dunya, but not in the akhira? What is the difference between the two realms and new types of existence two types of lives. The dunya is an abode of what are realm of testing the akhira there are no longer tests anymore. So in the dunya, Allah has the dual wants to see if you believe despite that you haven't seen him

00:20:41--> 00:20:48

right? Because once you see enough evidence of Allah's power, there is no room for Iman anymore.

00:20:50--> 00:21:35

Right, there are at least two things that come to mind when I mentioned this, when you see the angels of death and when you see the sun rising from where the west so there is no iman anymore. So why is that? Because the unseen had become seen, the distant had become nearer. Once you see the angels of Allah has little meaning good luck, what the story is done. There is no emotion anymore. Any emotion that you have at that moment after that is an A man of necessity, not a choice. But Allah as it wants to see this as to be an emotion of choice. That's why Allah rewards for it. And punishes if you fail to do it. A man of necessity you have to believe similar to one that sunrises

00:21:35--> 00:22:21

from the west it's an email of necessity because you have to believe that that's it the dunya is gonna collapse just when a person is about to die like Pharaoh did. And then to Anahola Isla okay now I believe al Anna, so Allah says did now you want to believe? What about the time when you had a choice, there was no space for you to accept ima. But now you're just about to die and you accept Eman? This is an Eman of necessity you're about to die, your life is going to end. Right. So no one sees Allah as Odin in the dunya. But we see him in the Sahara. Maybe a tangent connected to this as do people see Allah as Odle in their dreams. So there is a Hadith where the prophets Allah Allah

00:22:21--> 00:23:00

Azza wa sallam said in near iturra Beefy Asante surah I saw Allah as the origin, in the best of image. That is a seeing right or he saw him a vision that he saw in what in his dream, not a literal one where he and when he was awake, Allah His Salatu was Salam. But he saw him in in a dream, right. Now the question here can a person see Allah as the origin in a dream? He said, Yes, you can see Allah as Odin in a dream but the image is an image of what a dream is not actually Allah as though did as he is. Right? Because dreams are often symbolic.

00:23:02--> 00:23:25

Dreams are often symbolic. Now, when it comes to Rasulullah sallallaahu Selim, you can see the prophet as is, because he is what a human being. When it comes to Allah azza wa jal since we said you cannot see Allah as it did in the dunya. You can see him in the akhira. Whatever you image you see in a dream is a symbolic dream. He could be Allah azza wa jal, but the image is what a dream image.

00:23:26--> 00:23:31

And so they say it also reflects the status of the seer.

00:23:32--> 00:24:04

The status of the one who's having a dream, if he's pious, he'll see a beautiful image. If he's not so he will see another beautiful image, not so beautiful image reflecting his piety. That's why Rasulullah sallallahu sallam said the answers in the Hadith, in the array Torah beefy as any Surah, I saw Allah azza wa jal in the most beautiful have images, reflecting what the righteousness of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Right. And some of the other might have said the same thing

00:24:05--> 00:24:51

about seeing the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam that is, if you see the prophets of Allah Allah wa salam, exactly as he is, that reflects piety. If you see the prophets Allah listening, but he's missing certain things, it reflects things that are missing in you as well. Not literally this to that, but there's something missing in you, since your piety and up and up out, not up to that level, to see Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam as he is, right. So, again, just to emphasize the image that a person may see, in a dream, where he sees Allah as zodion Is it the literal shape or the literal image of Allah azza wa jal or simply an image in a dream image in a dream. So this is not

00:24:51--> 00:24:59

the way that Allah azza wa jal looks right. Just simply a dream image but not the way that Allah azza wa jal looks right. And important also to that

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

If you see Allah azza wa jal in a dream, or you see Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a dream, and they tell you they happen to tell you something that goes against the Quran or something that goes against the Sunnah. Which do you believe?

00:25:16--> 00:25:33

Exactly? Because your dream is it fallible or infallible? fallible, it's not protected from Shaytaan. The Quran is the Sunnah is not your dream. So if you see Allah azza wa jal in a dream and he tells you, you don't have to pray.

00:25:34--> 00:26:11

Do you believe it? No, is coming from the shaytaan right? So someone is playing with you, right? You see Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and he is saying You are My Khalifa. They believe it. Someone is playing with you, right? So you let go of all of that. And you rush to the Hassan and rush to the Sunnah. If you see something in your dream that can confirms what's in the Quran and the Sunnah. Hamdu lillahi, Rabbil Alameen you know, Baraka but contradicts it, you disregard it immediately. Right? And especially also if you see something while you're awake, it's talking to you and telling you this and that claiming to be Allah or claiming to be the prophet or claiming to be an angel, or

00:26:11--> 00:26:43

claiming to be allele. Right? Do you take it? Absolutely not. You just dismiss it somebody is playing with you right? Now. Oh, that will demonstrate on the regime and it goes away. Right. And again, go and rush and hold on to the Quran. Hold on to the Sunnah. And don't believe the whispers of the shaytaan. Because the shaitaan will try to play with you, especially if you're trying to be righteous, right? They see if I can fool in, I could really sway him and mislead them. See, be careful with that Allah as though does not manifest to people like that.

00:26:44--> 00:27:08

So believing in Allah, and then let's talk about why they dismissed that belief or did not believe in it. And then we'll talk about the Prophet Salatu was Salam and whether he saw Allah azza wa jal or not. So why did they dismiss it or wanted to dismiss that Allah azza wa jal could be seen on the day of judgment or in Jannah, etcetera. Again, the

00:27:10--> 00:27:23

borrowing again from the philosophers they believed that, if you believe this, then Allah azza wa jal will be imperfect. If you believe this, then Allah as of today will be a body because if we see things we see bodies,

00:27:24--> 00:28:07

and so if you were telling me they were saying, If you telling me that we could see Allah azza wa jal, this the Allah as it is material is a body like any other body, whereas Allah azza wa jal is supposed to transcend all attributes, transcend all perception, so Allah azza wa jal cannot be seen at all. So the Murtaza had you know, rejected that Allah will be seen as Oh, you know, in accordance with them rejecting all the qualities of Allah azza wa jal because they think that Allah is far beyond that. They are shy about they will say, Yes, Allah can be seen, but not energy her not in a particular location or a debate a particular destination or a particular area. Because they reject

00:28:07--> 00:28:44

the Asscher arrow they direct folks here to La he has noticed that Allah azza wa jal is above so the ASHA Allah will say, you know, we don't know for Allah is not above not below not here, not here, not there. And they just leave it ambiguous as that whereas the right belief is that Allah azza wa jal is where above his creation, above all of His creation, right, so above anything that he had created, and then Allah azza wa jal. So his creation is outside of him and his outside of his creation Subhana wa Tada as befitting him. So, we believe that when you in a see Allah azza wa jal, you will see him were above

00:28:45--> 00:29:16

their shadow will say, you will see him but not in any particular direction, which is in a sense, contradictory, how could he see something not in a particular direction. So, some of the ayat that they bring, to contradict or to disconfirm, the seeing of Allah azza wa jal, the first they will say, led to the recall of sorrow while you recall upside. A say that a gaze cannot encompass him, but he can encompass all gays.

00:29:18--> 00:30:00

And to that, we say there is a difference between seeing and encompassing it the locker room here are very different for you to see something for you just to simply see it encompassing something right is what to be aware of all of it. Okay, you could you know, you could physically encompass something by holding on to all of it, or having total control over it, or you can encompass it with sight by understanding all of it. So the difference is what like looking at the sun with your naked eyes. You can see this some route. Yeah, right. Do you encompass the sun with your naked

00:30:00--> 00:30:19

I know you don't know much about it, you just see part of it, but you don't understand all of the sun and you don't understand it in detail. So the distinct difference between Romania and Iraq. So when you see Allah azza wa jal, you will see him, but can you encompass him? subhanho wa Taala with your sight?

00:30:21--> 00:30:35

No, absolutely not. You cannot encompass Allah azza wa jal because you are a limited being. And Allah azza wa jal is has no beginning and no end. So, you cannot encompass the almighty man.

00:30:36--> 00:31:18

You can only see, right, and you cannot have enough knowledge to understand him Subhan Allah to Allah in full, you cannot. So do we know all the names of Allah azza wa jal and all of his attributes? No, we know some, but we don't know all of them. Some were kept away from us, right hidden from us. So you don't understand Allah azza wa jal 100%. Only he knows him. Subhan Allah to Allah, well, we know something, not everything. And when we see we see something but we're not going to encompass Allah oxygen. So the statement in the Quran is true. The statement in the Quran is absolutely true love to do recall of saw the sights will not encompass him, but they will see him

00:31:19--> 00:31:31

and how do we know that we will see him because other eyes have said it and the Sunnah, clearly stated it. So why do you want to take this to contradict that? Rather reconcile them all bring them together?

00:31:32--> 00:31:42

They say they use another evidence, which is when Musa alayhis salam asked to see Allah azza wa jal cholera barony under the lake is here Allah let me look at you.

00:31:43--> 00:32:08

Call ln toorani Alright, call ln toorani It says you will not see me. Well, I can only eat a gerbil but look at the mountain for in his Takara McKenna who for sofa Torani it says if it stays up, then you will see me for Lynmouth agenda or Boolean Jubilee Jaya Allahu Dhaka when Allah manifest to the mountain, he leveled it. And Musa when he saw this what he fell unconscious, right?

00:32:09--> 00:32:49

So they say, See, he wanted to see Allah azza wa jal, but Allah told him that you cannot see me. We say this insha Allah goes in accordance with everything that we've said that said so far. Musa alayhis salam first asked to see Allah who were in the dunya or in the Sahara, in the dunya. Now we said that you cannot see Allah in the dunya. Right? So, okay, and why did Musa alayhis salam asked to see Allah azza wa jal? We're going to reserve that to the end of why did he ask that? But if seeing Allah azza wa jal was an impossibility, right, Musa would not have asked for it?

00:32:50--> 00:33:10

If so, there's something that he's not supposed to ask for. He would not have asked for it. If Moses had asked for it, it means that it is a possibility. Right? Because Musa knows Allah azza wa jal better than to ask for something that is completely impossible. Right?

00:33:11--> 00:33:53

Could you ask just to be kind of just to bring this home? point home? Could you ask to be a god? hear yourself? You know, Allah, as though did better than to ask to be a god right? That is absurd. So if Musa knew that this is not even an issue that could be asked when he asked for it, no. So if he was telling me that moose had asked Allah as it would for something like that, you're telling me that Musa did not know what is right and what is wrong, and that Allah Azza did not correct him and to say, You know what, you shouldn't ask this. It's a mistake that you would ask this. And Allah does correct his prophets. When they asked for something they're not supposed to ask for, just see

00:33:53--> 00:34:03

with new Halley's Salaam and know how they Salam is of the top prophets and the best of the prophets of Allah. When he asked for his son to be saved. What it Allah has voted says,

00:34:04--> 00:34:46

is smart of your business to ask this, you know, I remind you not to be among the ignorant, and he asked Allah for forgiveness, even though saving that possible you could save you could save a human being, but because Allah had decreed that he will not accept, okay, the saving of someone who dies at a disbeliever he's not going to make an exception, whether it's for new or for somebody else. That's why he said you, it's not for you to ask this. And he asked Allah's forgiveness. So he corrected him. If this was inappropriate to ask, then Allah would have corrected Musa and said, How could you ask this is not for you to ask them something like this. And then Musa would have what

00:34:46--> 00:34:59

asked Allah's forgiveness from such a request. What Allah wanted to tell Musa alayhis salam is what? You cannot see me now. Right? lenta Ronnie and they say in Arabic land does not mean forever.

00:35:00--> 00:35:12

For this navy lease, at least the debate is not you will not see me forever, you will not see you don't have the ability to see me. And that's why you want it to show him that you cannot withstand.

00:35:13--> 00:35:27

Seeing Allah as though did with your own current form. So when Allah manifested himself to the mountain, the mountain could not take it and collapsed. Now we are weaker than mountains. So if you were to see Allah as it did, what would happen to you

00:35:28--> 00:35:30

die, you would die, you would perish.

00:35:31--> 00:36:09

The Why does not this does not happen on the day of judgment, because your creation is different, different creation can withstand that see that site. So on the Day of Judgment, for instance, on when a person enter Jannah, you're not going to be hungry, you're not going to be thirsty, right? That's not the same form that we have now. So that form is going to be different that form can see Allah as xojo. But in this dunya, it cannot. So there's really no real evidence to say that Allah azza wa jal cannot be seen on the Day of Judgment, except that some minds do not want to accept it. And they don't want to accept it simply because they think that that takes away from Allah's

00:36:09--> 00:36:13

perfection and majesty, and the way that they imagined Allah azza wa jal.

00:36:14--> 00:36:20

But in fact, in fact, and this is one of the fruits that we can take from

00:36:21--> 00:36:27

such a belief is that when you want when you worship Allah azza wa jal, right?

00:36:29--> 00:36:40

One of the things natural impulses that you have is to that you would want to you want what? To be close to the one that you worship, right? If you love Allah azza wa jal, right?

00:36:41--> 00:37:22

You want to read his book, and you want to mention his name. And you want to be as close as you can to him. subhanho wa taala. So what is the close the closest that you can be to Allah as soldiers, the higher that you climb in Jannah, the closer that you will be to Him, and for those is the closest that you can be to Allah as origin. And another form of proximity is to do what? To see Allah Azuchi. Because a person right who's always worshiping Allah azza wa jal and talking to Allah and hearing his words, wants to see what Allah looks like. So this is why Musa alayhis salam had asked for it. It is simply that Musa was curious and he wanted to see what Allah looks like. What

00:37:22--> 00:37:35

could that cannot be any someone as wise, as Musa alayhis salam wouldn't ask such a frivolous request. I'm just curious to see how they, how you look and what you look like. But why did he ask

00:37:36--> 00:38:18

is our will Allah Allah miss out of love for Allah as Zota that I want to see what you look like yet, and he finally see your face, finally see who you are, right before that to be revealed. And so it is the greatest joy for the believers on the day of judgment and in Jannah, to see Allah azza wa jal, the object of the worship, the one that they've been talking to all the time and doing all these things, for his sake, they've sacrificed especially those at the highest levels of Eman. They sacrifice their life for him, and their money for him, and his children for them for him, and their comfort for him everything for him subhanho wa taala. And now the only thing that they want to do is

00:38:18--> 00:38:56

just look at the face of Allah Zoetic. And he rewards him Subhan Allah to Allah, but by allowing them to see that, and it turns out to be the greatest joy that they have better than the fruit of Jannah. And the food agenda is the greatest. Right? Just think about it now. What are the things that brings you the most joy in this life? And if food maybe is one of them, probably right? You're thinking about food right now. Right? So just think about the food, how much joy that food brings you. Then multiply that by I don't know how much with you and understand the joy that the food of Jenna will bring you. Then think about the joy that the seeing Allah azza wa jal will bring you

00:38:56--> 00:39:32

which is higher than that. So again, just think about it that way, you're drinking now the best thing that you could drink in the dunya. Think about it, or eating the best meal now that you could enjoy in the dunya. See how much joy it gives you. The food in Jannah is Allah better than that, and seeing Allah is a lot better than that. Now also think about the company of a human being that gives you the greatest joy now in the dunya, your little child, your little girl, a little boy, your spouse, whatever. He's just gives you a lot of joy when you're next to that person or you really want to meet them. Think about being next to Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam, or all those pious

00:39:32--> 00:40:00

people in Ghana and the joy is completely without any sorrow or any fear any negative feelings. Then Allah azza wa jal seeing Allah azza wa jal is even better than that. So that's why we're saying that seeing the face of Allah azza wa jal is the object and the pursuit of those who love Him subhanho wa Taala and those who worship Allah subhanho wa taala. So how could you deny them that that is the great fuel that it gives them

00:40:00--> 00:40:38

their life and their pursuit, meaning, now take that away, and you've taken away from them Allah as the origin and their motivation and you've taken from them the fuel that had been giving them the energy to worship Allah azza wa jal. And so the more that you deny of Allah's attributes, the less Allah is relevant in a person's life. And the more that you affirm these attributes up in their apparent meaning, the more that Allah is relevant and present in people's life and the closer he is to them subhanho wa Taala so all these things actually matter, because you will love Allah more and feel that you're close to him. When you follow the Quran and the Sunnah. If you go through this

00:40:38--> 00:40:51

logic and reason that denies Allah azza wa jal and all these things, you begin to feel that Allah is distant and you are distant from him, and you give supremacy to your mind, rather than to Allah azza wa jal, right?

00:40:52--> 00:41:35

This is by the way is the fruit I forgot to mention about the Quran being the words of Allah xojo So What fruit do we take from it when we believe that the Quran is the actual speech of Allah azza wa jal when we take from it, that if you want to hear Allah xojo You want to hear his advice to you. You want to hear his guidance is right there in the Quran. Right there in the Quran. The closest thing to you, there is some people and he sometimes even feel that there is such a distance between us and the creator. I've talked to Allah azza wa jal, but I don't hear him talking back to me. You want him to talk back to you pick up the Quran. You want to see what Allah has to say to humanity,

00:41:35--> 00:42:18

read the Quran, because every day right you're seeing what a politician is saying. What a an influencer is saying what so and so is recommending a nutritionist, psychologist this all they are all their advice, and you take it seriously. But do you consult and see what Allah as it it has to say to you, it's right there in the Quran. So what a joy it is, and what a privilege and what an honor and what a net Amma that you could just open a book and hear Allah as if you're talking to and you want advice Allah could give you advice, and you want commentary on the latest political this and that, open the Quran, and look hard enough and you will see commentary and whatever happening in

00:42:18--> 00:42:30

the world today. Because Allah azza wa jal his message to humanity is in the Quran. So if you believe that is the word of Allah, you will believe that when you take it in your heart, you're taking baraka

00:42:32--> 00:43:14

and when you memorizing you're memorizing what, baraka and what goes into your ear, you're hearing baraka and into your heart and mind. You're processing this baraka from Allah subhanho wa taala, and a body that as a result of Allah he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had said, and the body that gathers the Quran will not be burned by the fire, because it houses what the words of Allah azza wa jal. So, a body that gathers meaning memorizes the Quran and applies the Quran will not be burned by the fire, it has no power to burn the words of Allah azza wa jal. So it's such a blessing and such a privilege to have the word of Allah zodion It just needs people who will take it and honor it and

00:43:14--> 00:43:27

apply it. Right. So may Allah Azza Jamaica's of those people who honor you know the words of Allah azza wa jal and also look forward to seeing Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, on the Day of Judgment, I mean,

00:43:28--> 00:43:59

it says here, it continues to under Nebia kodra araba, and that the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam had seen Allah azza wa jal, and he says that it is reported by so and so so and so and so and so. And it all goes back to ignore a bass or the law who and who. Now, what is reported about him from ignore Abbas authentically is that the prophets of Allah Allah who was alum, saw Allah azza wa jal with his heart. He saw Allah as though did with his heart

00:44:00--> 00:44:22

that reports from even my best sort of the Allah who I knew that says that, that Allah Azza that the Prophet SAW Allah azza wa jal and stops without mentioning his heart are weak. And he does not mention that the prophets of Allah sin Ahimsa Allah azza wa jal with his eyes. So there are three things. What is authentic Dibner Abbas is that the Prophet SAW Allah with his heart.

00:44:23--> 00:44:35

There are reports for him to our best that the Prophet SAW Allah, but he doesn't mention with his eyes, and these are weak. And there is no report for him to Ibis that says that the Prophet SAW Allah with his eyes.

00:44:37--> 00:44:47

Now, the Sahaba and then some of the set of disagreed about this issue. Some said that the prophets Ali Salam Salah is littered with his own eyes

00:44:48--> 00:44:50

in Lissa, the night of Elisa

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

and others have said no, he did not say Allah azza wa jal with his eyes. Right. Why did they say that Allah did not see Allah. The Prophet did not see it.

00:45:00--> 00:45:11

with his eyes and that's actually the accurate opinion that Allah the Prophet did not see Allah as legit with his own eyes in the dunya. Why is that the accurate opinion? Because the prophets Allah listen to himself was asked that question.

00:45:12--> 00:45:47

He says, you know prophets of Allah, hell right or back, he says, Did you see Allah azza wa jal? He said sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Nauruan an aura, he says light, how can I see him meaning between me and him? Subhan Allah to Allah is light, how can I see him and that is the light of the hijab. Okay, the barrier, okay, between Allah azza wa jal and his creation and that they are he is created barrier. So the prophets Allah Allah Islam is talking about this created barrier that has this created light that stops anyone from seeing Allah azza wa jal

00:45:48--> 00:46:07

and it says, In another Hadith, that Allah azza wa jal is hijab. Oh, who knows? Allah azza wa jal, his hijab the barrier between him and his creation is nor is light. If we here if he were to remove him, the light of his face Subhana wa Tada will burn all of His creation.

00:46:08--> 00:46:44

So you know that his creation now does not have the form to do what to withstand seeing Allah as xojo all over creation will perish, because of the light of the face of Allah azza wa jal subhanho wa Taala so what stands between us and Allah azza wa jal is a barrier. So Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam when he was talking to Allah as though he was talking from behind that barrier, like talking directly to Allah, listening directly to Allah, but as far as seeing Allah did he see? No, there was a barrier in between? Well McCann, Allah who it says in the I'll try to remember it insha Allah

00:46:47--> 00:46:54

Okay, Farish, Allah just went away. Here Insha Allah, but it says basically that Allah azza wa jal, and when he reveals I'm sorry.

00:46:55--> 00:47:08

You will make an alibi Shannon Are you Colima? Hola Hola Hola. Hola. Hola me what I hate you. It says Allah azza wa jal is not going to communicate with a with a human being except with through revelation or behind a hijab.

00:47:10--> 00:47:29

So that's how it is. So even when talking to Musa alayhis salam, Allah azza wa jal What did not reveal himself to Musa alayhis salam because Musa could not withstand that. And to Mohammed Salah Salem, Mohammed Salim who could not withstand that, so either through a revelation, right that Allah says or from behind the hijab.

00:47:31--> 00:47:44

So no one saw Allah as origin. It will be seen on the Day of Judgment. Now, Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah there are multiple reports coming from him. One where he affirms that Allah Azza that the Prophet SAW Allah as though did

00:47:46--> 00:48:04

another report where he says that he saw Allah as it did with his heart. So multiple reports and these multiple reports they are based on the different reports from IGNOU Ibis. What are the Allah who I know, right? I Aisha was asked, What are the Allahu Anhu? Did?

00:48:05--> 00:48:45

The prophets Allah lucency Allah azza wa jal and she denied it. She denied it. And many of the Sahaba denied that. And they said how about the sewer? The ayat in Surah 10 najem what a Katara Hoon is Latin Ohara etc, etc. And she says no, the AI is in solid and legend that says that he had seen him another time from Medina Fidella, can Acaba, Jose. Now, all of these things, they're talking about Gibreel arrays, talking about Jibreel that Gibreel and his salaam, manifested in his real form to the Prophet sallallahu send them twice. Otherwise the prophets Allah said, We'll see him in the form of a man or the LGBT would come and simply just revealed to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but

00:48:45--> 00:49:29

in his real form, he saw him twice. But he has a 600 wings, you know, and he was this magnificent creation that blocks the whole horizon, east and west. So it's a great creation of Allah as of to juvie. But he did not show himself to Muhammad salallahu Salam, frequently, he says, On that night, the prophets Allah lives in them saw him as he is, as he is, did not take another form, but that is not in reference to Allah azza wa jal. So if not, at best, the authentic narration which is inside Muslim all the way to ignore at best, are the Allahu Anhu is that the Prophet sallallaahu Selim saw Allah with his heart. Now what does it mean that he saw Allah Azza did with his heart that Allah

00:49:29--> 00:49:59

azza wa jal had allowed him to see but not with his eyes? Because he cannot do that. He cannot, doesn't have the power as a as a human being to see Allah with his own eyes, but the vision of the heart, a vision of the heart, they say similar to what if you can, if you want to kind of understand this better? The prophets Allah illallah wa salam said about himself. And this is part of the hasa is something that is special about him Allah He is Salatu was Salam

00:50:00--> 00:50:07

He will tell people straight in your rows behind me, for indeed, I could see you behind me, as I can see you in front of me.

00:50:09--> 00:50:16

Indeed, I can see you behind me. As I can see you in front of me tell you, when the prophets Allah is hidden can see you in front of him, he sees you with his

00:50:17--> 00:50:20

eyes, when he sees you behind how does he see you?

00:50:22--> 00:51:00

Right? There's a different vision that the prophet is given. Right? It's not that his eyes are able to see Allahu Allah it's a different vision, different sense. Right of perception. So not every perception happens through the eyes. So how is it that he was able to see Allah azza wa jal, according to ignore Abbas, he says with his heart, so it's not an issue of knowledge. Because the Prophet Allah, Allah knows about Allah azza wa jal very well. And his belief and Eman is very strong. But this is something extra special that he was given Allah, His salaatu wa salaam to be able to see with his heart. And we'll leave it at that, because it's not really easy to understand

00:51:00--> 00:51:45

right now really, we just believe that the Prophet was given that honor, and that is enough. But then we believe that what everybody if they are believers, will they will get to see Allah azza wa jal on the Day of Judgment. Now, the kuffaar will not. And the hypocrites will not, but there will be believers will. So it's a great honor for a person to acquire that. And of course, for a person to acquire this, you must be someone who believes in it, right? Because if you are a follower of the Sunnah, then you will be rewarded with that. But if you deviate, there is this great danger that you will be denied that because it was we said, believing that Allah cannot be seen is a statement of

00:51:45--> 00:52:26

disbelief. Right. And again, we'll have to be sensitive about if someone denies it, that before we pronounced that you in particular are a disbeliever, that we teach him. And we know that he has no excuses. And this, the issue of tech fear is a very serious one. So the masses, the layperson, all of us are not supposed to handle it freely. And say, by the way, you have become a Kaffir. Now, now you have become a Kaffir. They are in here and there, you take it back to a scholar, and he say he said this and that now you judge, because once you call a person a CAFO, you're liable, you'll be asked, right? And unless you really know what you're talking about, if that is a transgression, you

00:52:26--> 00:52:53

have caused a great harm because have accused a believer of being what a Kaffir and that is a great sin. That is a great sin, right? And because there are consequences that follow such a statement. So you have to be really careful before you pronounce that so and so is a Catholic, no matter how eager you are or frustrated you are or you have you feel that Islam had been attacked with such a belief, despite your own feelings.

00:52:54--> 00:53:03

Hold back and refer this to somebody who knows more, and let them decide when a person has exited from Islam. And when a person has not.

00:53:04--> 00:53:16

We can take insha Allah bris briefly a little bit of the second point that he makes. And he says here Well, Ema? No, Bill Me Zanni yo melki AMA.

00:53:17--> 00:53:59

Now, when emailed Oh, believe me zaniolo Malkia. And believing in the scale, on the day of judgment came Agia. Use an abdomen pa Mati Farah Yes, you know, Jana hubba. Allah says, believing on this scale, on the day of judgment as it had been reported, from the prophets of Allah hottie wa salam, that a person will be weighed on the day of judgment, and he will not be as heavy as even the wing of a mosquito. He will not be heavy is even the way or will be even lighter, or as light as the wing of a mosquito. And that is a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where he says, you type your module in LVM is semeniuk Multi AMA, a man a big man will be brought on the day of

00:53:59--> 00:54:45

judgment and he will be weighed and he will not even be as heavy as the wing Allah mosquito meaning that this person who looks big in this life, in the scale of Allah azza wa jal, he is what? Nothing. And because what's on the inside was nothing, right? Whereas there's an authentic hadith of the prophets of Allah Azza wa sallam to tell you that people actual people will be weighed in the museum, when even when was owed an enormous owed was known to be a shorter man. And he's not very tall, a short man, and his legs were very skinny. So once he was climbing and the Sahaba were around and he climbed a tree, and some of his legs were exposed and they were so small and so skinny that

00:54:45--> 00:54:59

some of the Sahaba started to smile. Looking at how small he is, right? I love the Allahu Anhu so the prophets of Allah audio salami says you're smiling at how skinny and small his legs are, by Allah

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

Law, they are heavier in this scale than the mountain of hood.

00:55:05--> 00:55:29

And this small man that you look at the skinny man that you look at, when Allah azza wa jal put him on the scale on the Day of Judgment, he's heavier than what? The mountain of words, so just see the contrast between two different human beings. You could take one human being who's big, but he has this weight, he has this mass, you put him on this scale, and he's absolutely nothing.

00:55:31--> 00:56:16

And in the eyes of people who could be everything, right. And he could have in today's, you know, vernacular, he could have a lot of followers, a lot of influence, a lot of money. He has a lot of say, wins, he speaks, people really listen to him, right. And he could buy whatever he wants, and he could go wherever he wants, and people celebrate him. And he's everything, take him, but in the scale of this is human scale, if they put them in the scale that belongs to Allah as zodat. And he's what absolutely empty, absolutely nothing less than an insect. So that person ultimately goes where it goes to jahannam. If he's like that, nothing is absolute nothing emptiness. So it's not about

00:56:17--> 00:56:21

what you broadcast. And it's not about what you

00:56:22--> 00:56:30

pretend to be. But it's about what you actually are, and what your heart believes. And whether you are pleasing to Allah and close to him or not.

00:56:32--> 00:57:06

And someone like even Omus owed, or the Allahu anhu, or anyone like that today. You could be anonymous, unknown. Nobody listens to you. You don't have money, you can go anywhere, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. Yeah, and you are very weak, very miskeen, very poor, but with the scale of Allah azza wa jal, you are somebody, where as humans don't really consider you to be much. No one cares about you, but Allah azza wa jal does. So the reason that Allah azza wa jal, Subhana, Allah that he has in the hereafter is really in contrast to the reason that we have here. We're supposed to have the same reason, by the way.

00:57:07--> 00:57:17

Right? Same reason, what judge the same way right? We're supposed to judge the same way that Allah judges that Allah as it has revealed this reason in the Quran.

00:57:18--> 00:58:03

And he has revealed this reason in the Sunnah, how you're supposed to look at people. Hi, he said, subhanaw taala. Right. In the Quran, that a slave a believing slave is better than a disbeliever even if you admire the disbeliever that's not the scale that we use today. Right? Absolutely not. So when Allah Azza Dooney says we're nzlr Louisiane he had revealed the scale, it is the scale of justice that we have in the Quran of how to look at everything in the world. So anyway, he emphasizes here, Rahim Allah Allah belief in Allah visa and the visa and the belief of Allah sunnah wal jamaa is that on the Day of Judgment, they will be a physical, Misa, not figurative, it's not

00:58:03--> 00:58:06

symbolic, but something that is actually true

00:58:07--> 00:58:21

that will weigh people's deeds, their records and themselves. And this means n is physical. This means n is physical, and it has two pans

00:58:23--> 00:59:02

or two plates, where on one plate or one pan you will put something the good deeds and the other one will carry the bad deeds and all of that will be weighed to see which is heavier and which is not. So if the good is heavier, the person will go to Jannah if the evil is heavier, the person will go to hellfire unless Allah azza wa jal forgives. Now what is the evidence that it has two pans or two plates? There's a hadith of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam where somebody will be brought his records, records of deeds, bad deeds, and they are as far as the eye could see and they're like 99 of them. So so many of them.

00:59:03--> 00:59:46

So all of that will be brought and then Allah will ask, do you have anything to counter these? And that person will say no, I mean, he admits that all of these records of bad deeds are true. Yet Allah is asking to try to extract from him Do you have kind of like you're asking for defense? Do you have any thing that you could bring to offset the 99 records of bad deeds that you have? He says nothing. He says yes, but we have something for you that we have not brought yet. And this is Hadith will be darker then a card will be brought that has on it what La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, then that will be put on one plate or pan and all the records will be put on the other plate

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

or pan and which one is heavier. La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah will be heavier than all of the 99 records of bad deeds, those will fly away. And so the prophets of Allah Allah who said let me so says nothing can compete or be heavier than

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

En la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah. So one benefit from that hadith is that what there is a scale, actual scale and it has two plates, right.

01:00:13--> 01:00:30

And another benefit from that hadith is that if you really emphasize your towhead and you're to work Quran, Allah azza wa jal and your love for him and fear of him etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, ultimately that can evaporate all the bad deeds that are done.

01:00:31--> 01:01:15

And this person, he was fortunate enough for his to heed his love of Allah azza wa jal to be strong, it's not just simply said, la ADA hadal Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah and that was sufficient, because we know with certainty that there will be a lot of people who are Muslims who will go to jahannam first play if all of them have La ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah, and that's how they eventually can escape hellfire. But why is it that this shahada of their theirs does not evaporate? The all of the bad deeds that they have? Because they have to hate wasn't strong, wasn't strong was not sincere enough. Okay. But if it is sincere, and it is strong, and nothing stands in its way, so

01:01:15--> 01:01:52

this is an invitation for a person to cultivate and strengthen their relationship with Allah xojo by understanding their to hate, like, in theory, what does it mean, in terms of knowledge? What does it mean, but then take it and start applying it until Allah says there is truly one in your heart, and one in your worship, and one in love, and one in fear and one into what code etc, etc, etc. And then your to hate is strong. A person then after that could still fall and could still make mistakes. But as long as it's still hate is complete and intact and strong, it could remove all of that, right.

01:01:56--> 01:02:19

They also in addition to the scales, there's some mentioned that in addition to the pans that it may have a pointer. There's no specific evidence that it has a pointer, though. It's possible the pointer that tells you it's moving here, or it's moving there. It's heavier on the right or heavier on the left, they call it listen. Right? They call it listen. So it's possible it could have a pointer, but no direct evidence that it does. He says,

01:02:21--> 01:03:06

Rahim Allah who is no Amarula a bad people's deeds are will be weighed, as it's been reported in the Athan. He says we have to believe in this and turn away from those who reject that and not argue with them the same stance that he has Rahim Allah, don't argue with people because this is very clear. The prophets of Allah sin has mentioned it, reason has no place denying it, and there is no footing for anybody who says this cannot happen. Why is it that this cannot happen? Simply because you don't feel it should happen? Allah azza wa jal wants it to happen. No, two points insha. Allah before we conclude, one is, he said dues or manual labor people's deeds will be weighed, right? Yes,

01:03:06--> 01:03:26

that's true. Like how is it that P Allah can weigh people's deeds and actions? Allah can do that. Right? Allah can do that. Do we need to think about it much. I like to turn what you've done into something that can be weighed. That's it. And as part of the things that Allah has said that our weights are heavy in the nisa

01:03:28--> 01:04:08

Kadima attorney, if you've attorney Annalisa Anita Hill attorney Phil MYZONE, heavy button de la Rahman Subhan Allah he will be handy Subhan Allah he'll have them these two statements Subhan Allah he will be Hamdi Subhan Allah, Allah, the remember them. He said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that they are beloved to the Most Merciful, easy to say on the tongue, heavy in the scale, right heavy in the skin. He says Alhamdulillah them lol Meezan Alhamdulillah fills the scale. He says also salatu salam there is nothing heavier in the scale than good manners has no hollow. So a person who has good manners that will make his scale quite heavy, so are things that actually will make your scale

01:04:08--> 01:04:16

heavy, and these are one on ones among them. So that tells you that the actions themselves are weighed.

01:04:17--> 01:04:58

evidence that the records are weighed is Hadith we'll be talking about the Hadith of the betta the cod that we talked about records of deeds will be brought put on the scale evidence that people themselves will be weighed also that we mentioned that, you know, big fat man will be brought. He weighs nothing. A small man like if numerous owed will wait a lot. Right? So it tells you that even people themselves can be weighed. Final thing we'll say about them Insha Allah, even though we don't really even need to ask, but some people will say as those who had rejected Why does Allah Azza need to have a scale on that day? We we say the scales meal justice, we say yes, justice, but there's

01:04:58--> 01:04:59

actually a scale

01:05:00--> 01:05:13

Why is it that Allah need a skill on that day? We say, first of all, it's not our place to question it. Allah wants it so, but if you think about it, what's the benefit of having a skill on that day? Is that everybody could see what

01:05:14--> 01:05:54

a hack the justice, okay? It's not that Allah decided simply, although Allah is the just, I'll help by Allah, he is, but you want to see to see with your own eyes, right. And he also wants you to see the favor of Allah zodat. For some people, now you do deserve to go to hell, but you are forgiven. But if you actually deserve to go to hell, you will be a witness that you deserve it. And you can claim that what I will not be unfairly treated. So Allah wants everybody to see including yourself, that this is the good that you've done, this is the best that you've done. You will be the judge before anybody else. And that is one benefit among it. Right? Allah.

01:05:56--> 01:05:56

No,

01:05:58--> 01:06:15

absolutely, it's fine. It's very transparent, right? The good that you've done, the bad that you've done, and here's the scale, and the scale is completely objective. Not that anyone could question him subhanho wa Taala but he wants evidence for that to be from yourself. Right for you to say yes, that is true.

01:06:16--> 01:06:23

Love Adam. So we'll stop here in sha Allah for today and as for your questions, if you have any inshallah.

01:06:27--> 01:06:28

Yes.

01:06:40--> 01:07:21

Know, so we say that the question is, we said that Allah azza wa jal is above his creation. But we also know that Allah, as noted on the last third of the night descends to the lowest sky. So does he come down physically? Or what is the accurate interpretation of that hadith? We say, if Allah azza wa jal says that he comes down to the lowest sky, he comes down to the lowest sky, absolutely. But that at the same time, he does not mix with his creation. So at the same time, he's still above his creation. You say, How does this happen? We say what? Allah Allah. And the simple reason we say that is because the Sahaba heard that and did not ask the prophets a lot. He said, Well tell us how does

01:07:21--> 01:07:44

this happen? And how is it because some people will ask Adam Schiff on Earth, I mean, mentioned that some people because people asked him, he said, Okay, it's always 1/3 of the night somewhere. This is I mean, that Allah Azza will constantly in the lowest part of the dunya all the time, then he told him did the Sahaba asked this. Right, did they not know this? And did they not ask it? He said there was no reason for them to go into that.

01:07:45--> 01:08:25

You kind of like we kind of miss the point of it. All right, when we focus on this part, rather than focus on the part that hey, Allah azza wa jal is coming closer for your sake, are you up to ask him? So we can gauge into what these kind of mental questions about? How does it look like? How can this happen? And that you know, and we miss Fudger, right, because of it, were as the goal of all of this is to tell you what Allah as it is coming so close to you wake up and pray. And when you feel that Allah is that close, that Moto, the more motivated to come actually talk to him Subhanallah data and make dua and feel that he's very, very close to you and you to him. That is the objective of all of

01:08:25--> 01:08:47

this not to ponder, how is it that Allah has or does this or not? So it's a good question Barak Allah fake because it can come to people's mind, but they don't contradict each other. He's above his creation, right and his creation does not mix with him. At the same time, he descends in ways that would be fit his Majesty Spanner with the Allah and that is enough for us by the calorific.

01:08:59--> 01:09:21

Nam now, so if you call someone a hypocrite, without reason, right without reason, now we find that in among the Sahaba, sometimes when they disagreed, and they saw reasons to call another person, a hypocrite, they did that. Okay. And the prophets of Allah for CAB nomadic who stayed behind that he did not leave with the prophets, Allah He was Allah.

01:09:23--> 01:09:59

And then when the Prophet came back, and these are the three that Allah said to the repentance, when those haba were discussing their absence, when they are camping, they say oh prophets of Allah, he stayed behind because he's a hypocrite, right? Or Oh prophets of Allah to another person. Yeah, oh prophets of Allah, this person is a hypocrite. Let me just kill him. Right. So sometimes a person could have reasons, reasons to call someone a hypocrite if they exhibit that. It doesn't always necessarily mean that he had rejected Islam, but he's exhibiting it's less serious than a Kaffir. Okay, but he's exhibiting a portion of hypocrisy

01:10:00--> 01:10:41

or a trait of hypocrisy, right? So if a person does that he may deserve it or may not depending on the circumstances, but the best thing is to stay away from it. Right stay away because ultimately it does no benefit to the person when he hears it. And probably there's no benefit for the person who's saying it unless right unless you are mature enough knowledgeable enough and you know that that person has committed something intentionally no excuse that for that he deserves to be called a hypocrite then by all means, you could call him a hypocrite, but refrain from it unless it is what useful and based on some ground knowledge insha Allah from knowledge

01:10:42--> 01:10:43

yeah

01:10:48--> 01:11:05

that's a very good question. That is kind of a point of debate whether the angels have seen Allah azza wa jal or not. So some even deny that even the angels have seen Allah as Oh did so I will say Allah Allah I do not know I do not know yeah a good question though. Wonderful

01:11:08--> 01:11:08

yeah

01:11:13--> 01:11:14

struggling

01:11:15--> 01:11:18

to defend the team was having a hard time

01:11:21--> 01:11:23

even involved in the goal of the

01:11:32--> 01:11:32

think

01:11:33--> 01:11:36

I've been gone so the ideology is not going to arrive

01:11:38--> 01:11:39

what is our problem

01:11:41--> 01:11:42

okay, there's always

01:11:43--> 01:11:44

a problem

01:11:45--> 01:11:45

the

01:11:48--> 01:11:49

most Okay.

01:11:51--> 01:11:52

Later on

01:11:53--> 01:11:59

what is the overall experience or is it that the has be yet what is it the SPF today are you

01:12:02--> 01:12:02

defeated

01:12:05--> 01:12:06

that time

01:12:10--> 01:12:48

you're asking very complicated questions you know that right is a very complicated questions. Now um, so, I mean, the ideology we said that the ideology that or that belief okay. That formed the Morteza at that time, it scattered right. So they as a group, right, they were scattered How was the ended as a group as a coherent group. Their ideas remain in other groups as well. So they remain so the sciatic really carry a lot of the beliefs of the Morteza the rational belief of MATA Zilla in them. That shot I was still adopt some of the beliefs of the zealot because they tried to reconcile the

01:12:50--> 01:13:13

modernists especially the Arab, Muslim modernist, they are trying to revive they have been doing that for a while to revive the tradition of the Mirtha Zilla because to them, they are the champions of reason. So they want to take the same tools that they have used with the Quran with the Sunnah and apply employing them against the Quran and Sunnah. Similar to the ways that Methuselah did. So if you're talking about the modernists, the intellectuals who are standing on the

01:13:14--> 01:13:17

kind of far left the leftist, right,

01:13:18--> 01:13:58

who want to reread the Quran, reinterpret the Quran, they will revere the Mirtha Zilla and with the Mozilla have done and use some of these tools, but they don't stop there. They really go far beyond what the Mozilla have done, because they really want to dismiss any authority to the Quran or any authority to the Sunnah. So if you're talking about battles today, we have modern day martyrs either in a sense, but they are not as intellectually firm, or even pious as the Mozilla because the Mozilla even despite all of their problems, they did have debates with the atheists, the debates, debates with the Christians and this and that they were defending Islam. These people don't really

01:13:58--> 01:14:01

do that much. They're actually dismantling

01:14:03--> 01:14:27

absolutely upside the mainstream Islam so when you hear that alcohol is okay, gambling is okay. And these kind of academics who stand on the outskirts of everything, and they want to reinterpret everything. These are our modern day, Martha Zilla who are trying to reshift our understanding of Islam for it to mean ultimately nothing, not based on Quran not based on sunnah. So that's one of the struggles that we are having today.

01:14:28--> 01:14:59

And other struggles Subhanallah I mean, I don't think I can comprehensively go through all of them. But atheism is a struggle, being impressed with what non Muslims have and looking down on what Muslims have, like not having a proud firm belief in the Quran and Sunnah. It's being infatuated with what the others are saying. Right? So it's all science based or all Western based are following the trends and following the duniya and following wealth and dismiss

01:15:00--> 01:15:19

You know, you know religion altogether and not really worrying about religion altogether. Religion is backward, et cetera, et cetera. That's one of the our current struggles that we have today, who is doing it. And I mean, lo and many, many people are doing it each in his own small way or big way. But there are people who will hamdulillah they are trying to

01:15:20--> 01:16:03

defend Islam against all those atheistic attacks. Others are trying to remind people of the importance of holding on to the AF era and you know, not being deceived by the dunya others who are working against these misreadings and reinterpretations of the Quran. Other small or big groups that are sects in Islam that are trying to eat at this and edit that, and spread doubt about it. So each person is defending in very different ways. So it's not just one big thing, I think, as see Allah, Allah, but many, many small and small and big things that are attacking us from different sides. But ultimately, I think it all goes back to the fact that the body is weak. And so it's sick, all over.

01:16:04--> 01:16:16

Right, and if the body is strong, it'd be able to fight some of these infections, and you know, be able to overcome these attacks. But when the body is so weak, you have so many attackers, right? Allied.

01:16:20--> 01:16:41

Yeah, no, I mean, you have to start from within, right. And if you start from within, then it's easier to defeat the outside enemy. But if the inside enemy itself is weak, I mean, the inside enemy itself is strong. And you yourself are weak than the outside enemies, you know, is more stronger than you could withstand. Yeah.

01:16:43--> 01:16:44

I'm sorry, go ahead.

01:16:46--> 01:16:47

I'm sorry.

01:16:57--> 01:17:32

So hey, this is another thing. This isn't another thing, right? So so separating between men and women, because this is what is this is this is that how they think right outside of Islam. And so it has to migrate into Islam as well. So they're telling you, men are the enemies of women, men are the woman and the enemies of men, and they are not, you're not the same. He is supposed to fight the other to gain his rights. And it's most of Western civilization's, if you think about it, it's all about struggle. So it's all about conflict. There's always conflict between rich and the poor conflict between the blacks and the whites, conflicts between men and women conflict between the

01:17:32--> 01:18:09

young and the old, everybody is in conflict with everybody else. Nobody likes anybody else. Right? So it's all because the shaytaan, you know, so is the seeds of discord between everybody, because it's not based on any type of faith. And so everybody's fighting with everybody. And it's all over resources of this dunya. It's like, if you think about that, the fight between men and women is all about the dunya, who has more power, rich and poor, who has more power, young and old, who has more power is about money, and all of that about authority. So because everybody is seeking power and seeking material wealth, everybody's fighting. Whereas in Islam, when he tell him, you can take this

01:18:09--> 01:18:31

out of the equation, and all of your brothers and sisters and seek Allah's pleasure, then there's more room for harmony. But you know, that's that's, that's it's just typical for that to happen among Muslims where Muslims themselves are not attuned to what unites them, and they're following you know, the footsteps of those who are outside of their religion. So what your point is well taken political logic.

01:18:33--> 01:18:35

Okay, anyone from one side? No.

01:18:37--> 01:18:42

This is Kamala Harris. I'll see you in Charlotte next week. Subhanak along with him decrescendo Allah Ada hyndland Justice
