00:00:02--> 00:00:03

Cinema,

00:00:04--> 00:00:07

cinema de la vida it was it was a

00:00:10--> 00:00:11

lot of mine.

00:00:12--> 00:00:23

Snape I think they said oh I know but alameen so inshallah as promised, in the love in a talk tonight in sha Allah about whether a lot of Allah azza wa jal.

00:00:24--> 00:00:57

And what we will try to Charlotte to address tonight in sha Allah is the importance of this topic, what is about the importance of it? Where does it come from the benefit of knowing such a thing, the limits that we have when it comes to a line item, and then maybe in Charlotte, this few points that are, you know, contention can could be confusing inshallah, and then maybe leave some space for your questions.

00:00:59--> 00:01:43

So we'll see how it goes. And if we need to, you know, to continue this next week, or there's a topic related to it, or an offshoot of it, we can do that also, inshallah, next week, as well. So we don't have to do everything tonight, but we can, we can try. So, first of all, when we say the title of Allah has no agenda, other alized agenda, what do we mean by it? So first thing, what do you mean by all of that? It really relates to Allah knowledge and actions. So think about it in this way. And I'll explain, but it has to do with all US knowledge and unless actions, meaning that a law as though Jen knew about everything, knows about everything, knew about everything from eternity,

00:01:43--> 00:01:53

what's going to happen, what is happening, how it's going to happen, in detail, nothing escaped his knowledge. So it has to do with his knowledge.

00:01:54--> 00:02:10

And also that he created everything, so Nothing escapes his creation, Nothing escapes his destiny, Nothing escapes his plan. He planned it all created it all according to his knowledge. So basically, if you want to distill either this is what it is.

00:02:12--> 00:02:34

If you want to just expand on it a little bit, they divided into a laws, knowledge and law, writing down everything, Allah willing everything, and then creating everything. But all this goes back to Allah has knowledge and action, meaning that he knew about everything. And he created it the way that he wanted. So Nothing escapes his knowledge, Nothing escapes us.

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

That's all gone.

00:02:37--> 00:02:50

Now Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam made it part of a man. When he was asked about the man the pillars, he mentioned 1234 when he comes it comes to the six he says to believe in God

00:02:51--> 00:02:57

just tells you how important that is. It has benefits in this dunya

00:02:58--> 00:03:05

and it is related to believe in Allah belief in Allah Subhana Allah data so other than other In fact, when you think about all the pillars of

00:03:07--> 00:03:47

believing in the prophets of Allah is related to believing in Allah relating in the books of Allah is related to believing in Allah all of them are bad. And they originate from believing in Allah Zoda. So Oba originates from believing in Allah as origin. So if you know Allah, and if you know Allah through his attributes, you must also believe in Allah as destiny. Because we said it's related to two things right? It was knowledge and allows actions. So what is it about Allah Subhana, WA tada and these attributes that will make believing in hold on other a necessity and a pillar of email, then we'll talk about its importance and the benefit that you get out of it. But what about

00:03:47--> 00:03:53

believing along these attributes that leads to hold on other inevitably you must believe in it? Well,

00:03:54--> 00:04:21

if you know a lot to be the old, powerful, forget about that for now. If you know that a lot to be all powerful and Nothing escapes is power, if you know a lot to be all knowledgeable, all seeing all hearing, including, of course, animals. So I knew he was Shahada as allies and it says about himself in the Koran. He knows what is hidden and what is playing both.

00:04:22--> 00:04:58

And what is hidden. Allah hate includes the future as well. Because you know on the tongue of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Allah says in the Koran local to animal Hi, Eva, let's take 30 minutes at one member city. So if I would know what is hate, what is hidden? What would what would I be able to do to stick to I would bring most benefits in myself and no harm will touch me. So of course if you know that if you know the future, what happens you'll be able to protect yourself from harm. So when we say that Allah knows the light, what does that also include? The future as well.

00:05:00--> 00:05:21

So if you know a lot to be all seeing all here, and then Nothing escapes him some Hana doll, and then all knowing means he knows the future as well. Nothing happy he created everything that means that whenever you are doing whatever he and she are doing whatever happens on this earth, Allah created, take all of this, and what do you have?

00:05:23--> 00:05:29

This is what it is that Allah knew about it before it takes place, that our Lord had commanded

00:05:30--> 00:06:18

the pen to write everything down the 50,000 years before the creation of this earth. So whatever happens happens, according to what the pen has written, which Allah had told him, this is going to happen on this day, and this time in that place. And Allah wanted to dissuade Allah created and according to His will, that's basically what it is. So Allah, because I really emanate from our belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And by the way, there is a connection between them. Because since Adam, and I'm just gonna abbreviate and say that since God is related to Allah 's actions and knowledge, part of it will remain hidden from you, such as, or as much as part of a lot will remain

00:06:18--> 00:06:59

hidden from you. Right, I want you to remember this insha Allah for later. So you've tried, you can try to understand as much of it as possible, and you can try to understand as much of a lot as possible, but then part of it will remain beyond you, right? When it comes to Allah. So if I keep asking you questions about Allah, what would you ultimately have to tell me? I don't know. I don't know. I know this, this, this, this. But beyond that, I have no idea with Qatar as well. You can ask yourself or ask others. And they'll be able to answer an answer, answer until they reach a point. And then they'll say what we don't know. Because this has to do with a law and his actions and his

00:06:59--> 00:07:27

knowledge and his wisdom, which is not always clear to us sometimes many times it is, but not always. Now, why is believing along others so important? What does it do? Well, of course, it's comes out of our belief in a lot of Zoda. But what does it give you in this life and the asherah will give you agenda is it's a pillar, without any person cannot be a believer. What does it give you in this world?

00:07:30--> 00:07:43

There is if you know that Allah has actually planned everything, and he has taken care of everything. As the brothers have said, we'll give you our called reliance upon Allah, because who has power?

00:07:45--> 00:08:11

A lot of xojo and you don't have a lot has power. And if you know that Allah had planned it had orchestrated, had created everything in advance, then you don't put your trust in yourself. You don't put your trust in another human being, in your effort or in their effort, you put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it gives you to work with that's one thing, what else does it give you when you believe in karma?

00:08:13--> 00:08:59

come from? Exactly. Because when you lose the problem with loss is that you don't have an answer. Why did it happen? Could I have stopped it could I have saved so and so could have have you know, could have events turned otherwise maybe I could have but if you know that Allah wanted to happen this way and no amount of effort or skill or intelligence could have actually changed it. You submit to Allah. So there is that surrender part and comfort part, that part that gives to you and a one who does not believe in God will not possess the discomfort will always be tormented by doubts and by thoughts of Hawaii, did I cause this could I have done otherwise? So that is something else that

00:08:59--> 00:09:04

it gives you. So we talked about the local, we talked about comfort? What else could it give you?

00:09:09--> 00:09:24

Patience, that that's definitely the case two patience. So you will not be frustrated than when Are you frustrated when you forget about khuddam I want it to happen this way. But it's not happening. It's not taking place yet.

00:09:26--> 00:10:00

You're not frustrated if you know that. Allah has a plan that sometimes is different than your plan. You can you can play you can be the best of planners. You know how to do tomorrow, I'm going to do this, this this at this time and then followed by this and followed by that comes tomorrow and all your plans unravel. Then if you know that a lot as though Jill has a plan that supersedes your plan that will give you patience. And actually you will go along with a loss plan rather than yours when you cannot control it. Go with the Kaga rather than you

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

Plan, I want to be an I want to get this job. And by the age of this, I want to have a million dollars and I wanted all of this, but doesn't happen to say go with a lesson plan rather than your plan if your plan does not work. So it gives you patience. It also makes you brave. When you know that Allah has already destined and written someone's death in someone's life, when How am I when they're going to be healthy, When are they going to be sick, all of that. So you know that no amount of effort and the healer if you're talking about it, we need to be wise of course. But if a lot as it asks you to do something, and others threaten you with that, if you do what Allah loves, then

00:10:43--> 00:11:08

we're gonna do this and that to you, you know that nothing happens except by a lesbo, they will not be able to harm you, they'll not be able to touch you, unless Allah zillion wants that from you. So it does give you a lot in this life and believing in God is very valuable, and it's part of a man and no he man could be there without believing in either. Now, one of the questions that arise

00:11:10--> 00:11:54

is that if Allah has destined everything, okay, so this is the first point, if Allah has destined everything, all of it is written down in mind compelled to act in a certain way? Or do I actually have a choice? So when it comes to halal and haram to heaven, and hell? Do I have a choice to go to heaven or to go to hell to obey a law or to disobey a law? Or since it's all written down? I'm just simply compelled. I'm being programmed, like a robot. I'm being programmed to perform what Allah wants out of me, and Heaven and Hell is already destined. So I'm just heading where I'm supposed to head? I have no say in it. Is that is that the case or not? Now? Of course not.

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

Now, how do we know that this is not the case.

00:11:59--> 00:12:09

We can show a law review several points or several types of evidence. One is to go back to the attributes of Allah zoton.

00:12:11--> 00:12:28

Allah as Odin is just would you consider it to be just that you would punish someone for things that they're not responsible for? That they are compelled? See, he said no, right. No. In fact, Allah as noted in the Sharia, if somebody can help you,

00:12:29--> 00:13:06

you can act contrary to your own will and not be responsible for your actions and your sayings. Right. So if somebody compels you, for instance, either believe or disbelieve, or you will be killed, you are allowed to utter statement of disbelief. Are you responsible for it before Allah in the Sharia itself? You're not, you're not responsible. So Allah in Sharia in Islam does not hold you responsible for when you are compelled, how would he then compel you and punish you for it? So that is not justice. That is not a law as a surgeon does it?

00:13:08--> 00:13:13

add to it, okay? Then Allah azza wa jal also says in the Quran

00:13:15--> 00:13:42

what OSHA out of bucola mana men feel out of the loom Jamia effort to curry who knows what the meaning is speaking to Mohammed Salah la adios and you know how the Prophet was so eager for everyone to accept Islam. So Allah says, and if Allah had willed, everyone on the face of this earth would be a believer that Amen, amen. Fill out of the loom, Jamia all of them all at once, they will be believers.

00:13:43--> 00:13:55

So, can you please speak into the Prophet? Can you then compel anyone to be a believer? That is a lie saying to the Prophet, I did not compel them. Can you?

00:13:57--> 00:14:17

I find wanted everyone on this earth can be compelled, and they will have email. But I did not do this. Meaning that I gave them freedom to choose this and so if I gave them that could you Oh Mohammed solo send them or any other human ever hope to convince someone otherwise, if it's against their will,

00:14:18--> 00:15:00

you can never force them? Who means that what is your task then as a deliverer of the message is to simply deliver and let them decide as a lot as Odin had let it be. And then also in a lot of xojo says that he cannot have it then there is no compulsion in religion. This means it is in Sharia meaning that you're not allowed to compel people to accept Islam, right? You're not but it's also the case with a lot of xojo that he does not compel you that a karate battalion ambush terminology. So the right the righteousness is very distinct from wickedness, from falsehood. So Allah is saying you cannot compel anyone you simply do.

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

Show them the way and then they will choose. So there is freedom of choice when it comes to Islam, to email or to cover from the Quran from the son of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam add to it also, that

00:15:17--> 00:15:31

on a human level, we recognize that we have free will. In fact, if you think about our society, and the laws that we have in any country, it's all based on the fact that you have free will.

00:15:32--> 00:15:38

Otherwise, if there is no free will, why would there be ever a penalty or a punishment in law?

00:15:39--> 00:15:44

So punishment, as sometimes as what a deterrent?

00:15:46--> 00:15:48

If you know that you're going to pay a fine.

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

What do you do? You avoid the act.

00:15:53--> 00:16:11

If you know that you're going to go to jail, if you commit this crime, what happens? You'll stop? What does it mean that you've stopped mean that you made a calculation and sort of like the cost of committing this thing is too high. So you stopped doing.

00:16:12--> 00:16:22

So all the laws that we have in any society, all of them presuppose that you will look at the cost, and you will decide that it is too costly.

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

And you will not do this.

00:16:26--> 00:17:06

Otherwise, right, we will not have any law. Why? Because any legislator than he will say, and she will say, if I legislate anything, the rate and percentage of people doing this act before and after the legislation is the same. Like if you tell people, if you break a red light, you're going to pay a fine of $500. They say if you have no free will, all of us are compelled to add, if you measure our compliance before this law, and after it, you'll find is the same thing because it doesn't matter. Whether you threaten us or not, we're compelled, we can add to two ways that we have no control over. So we'll act in that way. You're with me.

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

The only way we're actually this makes sense is that if you threaten a person, they will respond to that threat, they will only respond to that threat, if they have free will, and they decide, I don't want to save myself, I want to save my wallet. So that tells you that on a human level, all of us recognize that we have free will if somebody insults you, you're angry with them, right? somebody hits you, you respond back by hitting them or yelling at them. Why? Because he blamed them for that act, why do you blame them for that act? Because you know that they what shows this thing? So when it comes to freedom of choice, we have freedom to choose. Now person may ask, Well, how is it that a

00:17:51--> 00:17:59

lot of soldier knew about all of this? destined it created it and yet I have freedom of choice?

00:18:00--> 00:18:39

So we'll try to answer in sha Allah, this question by approximation would say, first of all, there's no contradiction. If Allah tells you that there is no contradiction between it, there's no contradiction because Allah who only speaks the truth tells you two things at the same time, you're free to choose. And I've tested all of this. So Allah speaks the truth. So if you cannot comprehend it with your mind, it means that you still need time to process this and understand it, but I'll try inshallah, to approximate an old fine, shall what I want to do is take what we know and apply it to what we not know, in an approximate way. And approximately, so consider, you know, on a human level

00:18:39--> 00:18:58

here, okay, leave other aside on a human level. If you happen to know someone very, very well. And you spend a lot of time with them. You talk you understand their likes, dislikes and everything. And somebody comes tells you, I want to invite someone so to try this new food.

00:18:59--> 00:19:04

You tell them, no, he's not gonna like it. Right? How do you know?

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

He asked you is unknown. Although he has not tasted this before. I know what he likes, and I know what he dislikes. So he's not gonna like this thing. Or he says, I'm gonna go and propose this thing to him. He says, No, he will tell you this, this this. He goes and proposes it to that person. And that person says exactly what you said. He said, He will say, how did you notice?

00:19:32--> 00:20:00

From your background knowledge and your experience, you're able to predict what that person is able to say sometimes with a high level of accuracy may not always be right. But with a high level, I know what they like I know what they dislike, I know how this is how they will react. This is the word that they will be using. Now this is in proportion to how long do you spent with them, and how will you know them? Right? If you spend too long

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

time with them, and you know them very well, then you can actually be able to predict what they like and what they dislike, how they will behave, what is their strength? And what is their weakness, okay, now

00:20:13--> 00:20:15

you've experienced something like this.

00:20:17--> 00:20:36

If that's true with a human being, okay, and consider the amount of knowledge that you have, the brainpower that you have, how long you've spent on this earth and how long you've spent with this person, and you're able to make these predictions? Consider a lot of xojo, whose knowledge is what? infinite?

00:20:37--> 00:20:45

And his wisdom or let's call it intelligence, when it comes to you, is infinite? And how long did he live?

00:20:47--> 00:20:50

forever? And how well does he know you?

00:20:53--> 00:21:36

He created you. It's not just Hey, I've been with you for 10 years, or 50 or 50 years, I made you out of nothing, a lot knows every single atom and cell inside your body. So I'm not seeing a lot predicts. But if you were to say that such a being exists, what would their ability to prediction be? Almost 990 9.999, right? Because they know you very, very well, they made you out of nothing. So if that's the case, if you're able to, you know, grasp this, it will not be such a way that you will not be able to serve you with such difficulty that Allah would actually allow you to choose and know your choice beforehand.

00:21:38--> 00:22:12

knowing very well. And basically that knows also, where will you go? Is it to heaven or hell? So Allah does give you that choice. But he already knows based on who you are, your background, your strength, your weakness every day, you're going to make this choice, but not that choice. You're going to believe in this but not that, and then eventually you will be here but not there. So a lot of surgeon knows this as well. Now the term of the profits on the low audio syndrome, and this tells you about how the Prophet answered that question, okay, which is better than my answer?

00:22:14--> 00:22:50

Because he did not indulge it. He did not indulgence it. Think about it this way, think about it that way. But he pointed the Sahaba to what actually benefits them. So when he said to the Sahaba moment woman had in a local booth even had a woman agenda, aka the woman and now it says there's not one among you, except it was been written for him whether he's going to gender or hellfire. It's written down so hard. We are a school of lies his own prophet of Allah, shall we not simply not rely on what was written so that if a person is destined to go to gender, they just go to gender? And if they're destined to go to hell, they just go to Johanna, and that is it. She will and just not rely

00:22:50--> 00:22:52

on what is written Highlander.

00:22:54--> 00:23:04

He says no, so that's first one is significant because it's coming from him as a lot he was sending me saying that that thinking is wrong. So stop says no.

00:23:05--> 00:23:47

And women can omit any gender for you. Yes, suddenly, I'm a little agenda, man. Can I make it not for you? Yes. sabudana. Linda? Emmylou? Yes. saruni bajo de falla. He says, No, it says, if a person is going to go to hell to heaven, then he will be old find it easy to do the work of the people of heaven, he'll be facilitated, he will do the work of the people of heaven. And if he is written to pick up of the people of Hellfire, he will do the actions of the people of hellfire. Do worship Allah obey Allah, because you will be eased towards where you're going, meaning you will make a choice. And that choice is the thing that is going to take you. So in other words, are a sort of

00:23:47--> 00:23:56

lies a lot of cinemas saying Don't trouble yourself thinking about what Allah has written for you? Is it heaven? Or is it? Because is it accessible?

00:23:59--> 00:24:40

It's not. So it's foolish to sit and think a lot must have written that I'm in general, how do you know? A lot must have decided I'm in hellfire. How do you know? What's the only thing that you have access for a vibe you have no access? What is the only thing that you have access, present Shahada right here, the choice that you are making. So is saying consider what you are doing right now. If you are making the right choices, and you continue to make the right choices, that is a sign that Allah has written that for you that you're going to go to general. And if you're making the bad choice, and one after the other, these are all bad choices. This is a sign right here that Allah may

00:24:40--> 00:24:50

have written that you're going to be of the people who've hellfire. Consider what you have control over at this moment. The rest you have no access, so leaving.

00:24:51--> 00:24:58

So both of these things are not incompatible that you do have freedom and at the same time, Allah zildjian knows about it.

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

Now,

00:25:01--> 00:25:05

I'm going to show address the second question. But before I go to the second question,

00:25:06--> 00:25:09

also Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam said about

00:25:11--> 00:25:21

either lukianoff mc qu, it says, when you mentioned only going to be talking about Qatar or when it comes up, then don't speak or don't engage.

00:25:22--> 00:25:30

So what does he mean some alcohol use and and by either look at all of MC meaning that don't engage in this subject, without knowledge.

00:25:32--> 00:26:18

And don't talk about it aimlessly. without evidence, just with your own thoughts, with your own thinking this is don't don't approach it this way. And don't approach it in a way where you would think that you can understand everything and about it. Because as some of the scholars have said, Al Qaeda or sivaraman Sri Lanka is one of the secrets of Allah xojo, meaning you'll be able to grasp, grasp, grasp, but then there will come a point where it'll be unable to. So yes, discuss but I'm not understanding, see what a lot His Prophet had said about it. But then beyond that, don't let it confuse you. Take from it what you need, and then worship Allah zildjian and leave the rest up to

00:26:18--> 00:26:18

Allah.

00:26:20--> 00:26:26

Now, the other question that I wanted inshallah, to address tonight is the question of evil.

00:26:27--> 00:26:34

How is it that evil exists in this world? And Allah has xojo allows it Allah has destined it?

00:26:36--> 00:27:22

If Allah could intervene, why did he not intervene? Why did he not stop it? And that question, you know, has, as as you can imagine, has two components to it one intellectual and one emotional. That is a person may be asking this question, intellectually, purely on an intellectual level, I don't understand how the Creator who is described as being merciful, and powerful and compassionate, could allow this and he does not need human suffering. Why would he allow this? So on an intellectual level, the question comes up, it also comes up on an emotional level, someone who is either going through some difficulty himself or herself, or is witnessing another's difficulty. And so they

00:27:22--> 00:27:42

cannot reconcile the fact that I'm feeling pain, and they cannot remove it, or I cannot help that other person. And I don't understand why the creator would allow something like this. So then if a lot destines everything, how could this be reconciled with Allah's mercy and a lot of wisdom, etc, etc.

00:27:44--> 00:28:28

And, of course, in Sharla, in trying to answer this question, also, any note that a lot of people who end up either end up doubting the existence of Allah, and then he have actual, you know, concerns or actual questions that have not been answered, or those who are trying to find an excuse not to believe in Allah, they use this part, to reject the belief in the divine meaning, I will not believe in a God that does this. Or I cannot believe in God anymore. They had to believe before I could not believe in God anymore. Because I cannot understand why we need to suffer. If God is there, why we didn't simply just remove this suffering. So a believer, right, a believer, the

00:28:28--> 00:28:54

position of the believer is that I'll try to understand but if I don't understand, I'll surrender until I understand. I'll surrender until I understand and that inshallah should be an important aspect in our relationship with Allah zildjian. That is, I'm not going to hold Allah xojo responsible for every small thing I do not understand. And if you do not understand this small thing on rejecting you,

00:28:55--> 00:29:02

even on a human level, you don't live like that you actually surrender to experts and specialists.

00:29:04--> 00:29:05

So let me tell you,

00:29:07--> 00:29:21

your car breaks down you go and take it to the mechanic. And if you're someone like me, you have no, no clue about your car and how to fix it. Right? The mechanic comes out and he tells you we need to change this part. And that part, it's all like a foreign language to you. What do you tell him?

00:29:24--> 00:29:29

What? Fix it right? I want to drive this car, fix it. What do you've done there?

00:29:31--> 00:29:39

You've surrendered, you've submitted to someone, hopefully an honest person to someone who you think has knowledge that you don't

00:29:40--> 00:29:59

you have no idea what they're doing. You don't have the time to go and investigate and study and fix the scar yourself or not even your to study so that you understand what he's saying. So you go and submit you say okay, I know that you know what you're doing. Go ahead and fix it. And he hands you the car ready to run and you ride it and you give them money and you go on

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

You don't know how what's what's working, how it's working, you just simply know that it's working. Or you go to the doctor and how many times that we've gone to the doctor, he gives you a medicine or gives you your condition and this this and that. Do you really understand it?

00:30:14--> 00:30:44

Like even the painkiller Do you really understand? If but if you're a doctor, Don't raise your hand say I do. But if not, do you really understand how painkillers work? Really? Like? If somebody asks you? I have no clue how it works. But do you take it? Why do you take it? Why are you so foolish, you're taking something that you don't even know how it works. Or he prescribes another medicine. He says, take this medicine is supposed to work. And you go to the pharmacist and you take, how come you taking something you don't understand how it works, why you do this?

00:30:48--> 00:30:54

You trust because you trust that he has knowledge that you don't, you do not have the time

00:30:55--> 00:31:06

to understand everything on the face of this earth? Nobody has. So you have to submit to experts. Do you have the time to study medicine and all of its branches, biology and all of its branches,

00:31:07--> 00:31:40

chemistry, physics, astronomy, everything and all of its branches, and all of its small details so that you can understand everything in this universe? Do you know, so even the most intelligent person on this road, the most learned person on this road? There are areas that he does not? She does not understand. So they have to submit to experts, I have no idea what the how this works here. You tell me. And then they tell you and then you fall? This is human expertise. Right? So how about so when we are talking about a lot of divine?

00:31:41--> 00:31:43

Who has everything?

00:31:44--> 00:32:05

So if you've already have established that Allah is there, and he exists, that he's all knowledgeable or wise, etc, etc, etc. You also should at times submit to Allah, even if you do not understand the wisdom of His revelation, or the wisdom of his cosmic commands, because Allah commands are of two types are likely to tell you

00:32:07--> 00:32:08

pray fast.

00:32:09--> 00:32:12

Do you understand the wisdom of all of us revelation?

00:32:13--> 00:32:14

view?

00:32:15--> 00:32:23

We understand some of it right? If I tell you gives, you understand why, right? But why is so late?

00:32:24--> 00:32:28

isn't difficult? Why is this so late? or early?

00:32:30--> 00:32:40

Do you really know it could have been different? But do you really know exactly why you don't? Or units? Or why issue four? And three? You have an answer.

00:32:41--> 00:32:58

So you don't understand the full wisdom of Allah's you know, Revelation, but most of it you do. So you trust, you know, you rely on what you know, to understand or to trust or to believe in what you do not. That makes sense.

00:33:00--> 00:33:29

And cosmically, it's the same. You focus on what you know, from Allah, to be wise, to be merciful, to be compassionate to what you see, and you can comprehend. And you use that to understand or at least believe in what you do not know, to unlock the secrets of what you do not know. And by the way, this is how humans, human inquiry proceeds, isn't it? If you're a scientist, or you're a detective, and you want to solve a crime, how do you solve it?

00:33:31--> 00:34:18

You take what you know, to solve what you do not know. That's exactly how we do it. So even in Islam, you take what you know, and you have it shed light and explain what you do not know. Right? So if we see something, for instance, that we consider to be evil, and I do not understand yet the wisdom behind it, why it happens. What do I say? I understand a lot of ways. So there must be a reason behind this, even if I don't see it. Is that blind faith? I don't call it blind faith. Blind Faith is when you trust someone without evidence. That is to me blind faith. But that type of faith is faith based on evidence. I trusted a lot before because I could see that he's reliable, I could

00:34:18--> 00:34:38

see that I can trust him. So when it comes matters, or two issues where I don't really know the reason, I'll still trust him. Okay, I'll give him give you an example. Somebody you meet somebody in the street and he tells you answer an emergency. Give me your car keys, I'll return them after an hour. You don't know them when you give your keys to them.

00:34:40--> 00:34:51

If you really, really nice you May I call that blind faith. That's blind, is trusting because you decided to trust you have no idea that power is coming back or not. Right?

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

But if a friend a dear friend that you've tested repeatedly, and you trust him like you trust yourself, he comes and says I need your car. I don't have

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

Time to explain it we back in an hour. If you give him the keys, is that blind? No. So you see, understand what I'm talking about when I'm talking about Allah zoa did, why do you trust him in circumstances that you cannot fully grasp? Is because previously Allah zoa did not that he needs to but he had proven himself to you being reliable, being trustworthy, being merciful, compassionate. So I will take this to understand other parts that are not yet clear. So that's inshallah keep that in mind. If and whenever things are in comprehensible, come up in your life, or anybody's life, but evil. Why isn't it?

00:35:44--> 00:35:45

First of all, insha Allah.

00:35:47--> 00:35:53

first principle is that there is no such thing in this life that we can call pure evil.

00:35:54--> 00:36:14

It is only relatively evil. And there's quite a difference between the two. pure evil means it's pure evil from every ad, action, angle and direction, it produces no good consequences at all. It's like a completely black hole that sucks all goodness in it, and produces non white metal.

00:36:15--> 00:36:16

That is pure evil.

00:36:18--> 00:36:29

What is relative evil, relative evil is that it is harmful. When you look at it from a particular angle, in one place, or in one time, that's evil.

00:36:31--> 00:37:05

But if you consider the full picture of everything that Allah zildjian had intended, if you look at past and present, and future, and the complexity of past, present and future, that thing is never going to be pure evil, only relative evil to some people in some time and in someplace, but it can never be pure evil. Why is there no pure evil because Allah azza wa jal is all good. Allah produces no pure evil, pure evil is just like what a human being killing another human being for the sake of fun.

00:37:07--> 00:37:13

That on part of that human being, and what they've decided, that's pure evil, what they've done, right?

00:37:14--> 00:37:16

Somebody's stealing for the sake of stealing,

00:37:18--> 00:37:34

insulting someone for the sake of insulting them, there's no good that comes out of it. So this person has decided to commit that evil. But what a lot decides is very different. So we'll consider insha Allah here, first of all, as an illustration, the story of Musa and

00:37:35--> 00:38:18

is that story is very rich. And you look at it, you can look at it and learn so much from it. One thing that you can learn from it is action that seems to be evil, is not evil under another life, when you really understand the full picture. And when Allah zildjian was telling us and was telling Musa alayhis salaam, that story was telling us what this is what you know, because this is a by the way, this is one of the other said, when they were on the boat with Musa elohiym, a seller, and a bird came, and he took one drop of water out of the out one drop of water out of that river. What did he say? He says, our knowledge compared to the knowledge of that Allah has a list that what that

00:38:18--> 00:38:21

one drop that that bird had taken from this river.

00:38:22--> 00:38:33

You've worked with me to how much do we know compared to what Allah knows, is less than this one drop out of a flawed flowing river? See, you told him this?

00:38:34--> 00:38:57

What's the benefit of that? benefit is that when you look at something and you decide that it is a or b, or c, that allows telling you otherwise, trust a lot, because what he knows, is far greater than what you know what you know, and does not even compare. So when a caller wins, and he sort of pulled out one of the planks of that boat, and he disfigured

00:38:59--> 00:39:29

that boat, harm the people by what they've done. That action like that, that when you look at it only with this information. Doesn't it look like evil? And this is why moose objected? Because what did Moses see what did Moosa know what did he understand? This is what you're doing? You're paying a people who you know, carry this from one bank to the other, across the river by destroying their boat that is evil. How did he explain to him

00:39:30--> 00:39:54

what he did later, right? When they decided to part ways, how did he explain it to him? He said, and I'm paraphrasing, he said, Yeah, who said if you were just to simply see what I see, know what I know, expand your gaze. You will see that later. So who know who knows the future except Allah, Allah zojirushi.

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

So later, there's going to be a king and he's

00:40:00--> 00:40:15

tyrant. And if he passes by their boat, he will confiscate it. So I disfigured that boats that when he looks at it, he will leave it to them. And by that the property will be saved. So what looks like evil to you or Moosa? What is it?

00:40:16--> 00:40:17

It's a good deed.

00:40:19--> 00:40:46

So the next one when he went and he killed that little boy, and that, by the way, Mussa he couldn't use, it did not forget that, that he had made this promise to each other. But just the difficulty, what he saw a young boy playing and how that goes, and he just kills him. Just consider how difficult that is to witness. So he couldn't stop himself telling him, you know, what have you done? So how does he explain it to him?

00:40:48--> 00:40:58

What does he tell him? And again, this is knowledge that only Allah has no one else has this knowledge. That is this, this little boy, if he were to grow up, he would grow up what?

00:41:00--> 00:41:14

An unbelievable, a caffeine. And if he grows up a caffeine, he will burden his parents and push them into this believe themselves. So what was best for them? To continue to have that child or to lose them?

00:41:16--> 00:41:23

It's difficult, but to lose them. So this app that how did that look like it's evil? What is it?

00:41:25--> 00:41:25

mercy or not?

00:41:27--> 00:41:42

What do you think? It's mercy? Because it's to their benefit. And Someone may say no, you know, why didn't? Why didn't? Why didn't Allah simply not give it to them in the first place? Just not give them that child? Why give them that child and then take it away?

00:41:43--> 00:41:46

Because one thing, you know, is losing a child

00:41:47--> 00:41:56

has its benefits as well. In the AF era, definitely. And maybe possibly in the duni as well. What are the benefits in the era of loss?

00:41:57--> 00:42:07

Which solely ties it ties into a sooner why a lot of the destines difficulty in this slide? What's the benefit of losing a child or loss in general in the outfield? What does it do?

00:42:09--> 00:42:26

So that's one thing, the child y can take the parents to gender can lead them to gender, he will be waiting for them. So that's one thing. What's the other benefit? Any loss, not just this loss, but any loss for a person to experience in this world?

00:42:27--> 00:42:30

What release in general, what's the benefit?

00:42:32--> 00:42:36

There is reward if they are patient, and it removes their sense.

00:42:37--> 00:43:15

So that, if a lot more to ask that person, when not when they are in gender, or before they enter it. If you had the choice of keeping that job, or keeping that thing that you love so much in the dunya or being rewarded for it in heaven, which would you choose? What would that person say? I would choose what you've chosen. I will choose what you've chosen, because it's the best choice. And that's what believing in Qatar actually does. Because when we believe that Allah adds all of us actions are related and linked to his wisdom.

00:43:16--> 00:43:19

So all of his actions are wise.

00:43:20--> 00:43:39

It's not chaotic. It's not ruthless. It's not vengeful. So somebody says, you know, allies like punishing me, allies, not vengeful, even when a lot of Snowden is sending something our way because of our sins. Why does he send it because of our sins simply because he wants just to destroy?

00:43:41--> 00:44:05

What does he want to do? He wants to remind you wants to wake you up. He wants to forgive your sins, He wants to bring you closer to gender save you from hellfire. So loss in this dunya has its benefits as well. And these benefits are in the athalon, mainly, but they are also in the dunya as well. What are some of the benefits of loss in the dunya?

00:44:07--> 00:44:42

There's a lot so first of all, is not going to take something away from you, that would corrupt you. If Allah had given you consider if you have raised the child raising a child or if you know people who are raising a child. And whenever that child wants something, what do they do here? Take it, take it, take it what type of person would that be when he's an adult? The worst? The worst. So if you do not take away if you do not deprive you're not going to teach that person responsibility. If Allah gives you what you want all the time, you'll be spoiled.

00:44:43--> 00:44:59

You'll not be thankful. You'll hurt people around you. You will be full of pride. You'll be arrogant, you'll be ruthless. You'll be without mercy without compassion. You will not feel people's pain. You're not rushed to help them. But when do you start feeling people's pain?

00:45:01--> 00:45:02

When you experience it,

00:45:03--> 00:45:42

when you know what suffering is, remember when about about Ramadan, we say no do not know if we actually feel this or not we fast because we want to feel what the poor feel. I don't know if we do this or not. But it's true, at least in theory, when you're hungry, then when somebody tells you I'm hungry, you remember your own feeling of hunger than you would give them. If you've never went hungry, how do you even understand what hunger is? How do you understand what suffering is, if suffer if you did not suffer? So for you to actually be a better human being, you need to experience loss. And you will find people who dedicate their lives, a lot of them will dedicate their lives to

00:45:42--> 00:46:03

try to help people, save them from poverty, save them from illness and disease go in units of panela into areas that, you know, there's no electricity, there's no medicine, and they go on to risk their own lives. Why do they do this? Because they're the suffering in their life that moves them to help other people. So there is benefit in it.

00:46:04--> 00:46:35

So the limit of Allah's knowledge, going back to the story of Muslim and Halima Salaam, it tells you that when you look at it this way, when you focus a very small light on this thing, this is evil. This is hard, this is suffering, especially when it happens to you, because when it happens to you, you can only see your pain, you can't see anything else around you and beyond you. But when you expand the light, and you look at it in terms of what's happening, past, present, and future, how what is happening to you affects

00:46:36--> 00:46:47

not only you, but a lot of other people around you how you are also part of a story that is unfolding. And you may not realize it.

00:46:49--> 00:46:50

You know,

00:46:51--> 00:47:13

you can trace, okay, not that it's the only reason you can trace World War One, okay? to someone who the driver was taken a wrong turn, and a wrong Street. And by that someone was assassinated, the Emperor was assassinated, and you get allies who are fighting each other.

00:47:14--> 00:47:33

And the fall of the Ottomans, you can trace it all to the death, somebody shooting that Emperor and killing him. Why was he able to kill him because his driver took a wrong turn. And he was in a different street that the one that he was supposed to take, he shot him that sparked World War One.

00:47:34--> 00:47:36

It's not the only reason.

00:47:37--> 00:47:39

But that small incidents.

00:47:41--> 00:48:00

And if you want to even complicate that, further, the one who made the gun, and those who try you thought that person how to shoot, and the one who taught the driver how to drive, and the one who made the car, and the one who paved that street, and how Allah had destined that they would meet at that place at that particular second.

00:48:01--> 00:48:02

Who plan all this?

00:48:03--> 00:48:21

So you think that's you know, my, my, this small thing that is happening to me is irrelevant, isn't only relevant to me. But Allah has this great thing that he's building, and you're part of it. So it's happening to you as part of it. So world war one starts because of a wrong turn.

00:48:22--> 00:48:38

The Ottomans fall because of it. colonization in the Muslim world happens because of it. A lot of you are here because of it. World War Two happens because of it. World History changes because of it, change that event take place.

00:48:39--> 00:48:53

A law only knows how and why and where the chains of events take place. Because something small that is happening to you and to me, so when you say to yourself sometimes why is it that I did not get that job and somebody else got it?

00:48:55--> 00:48:57

Well, you don't see a logical plan, do you?

00:48:59--> 00:49:12

How you will actually losing this job will affect history? And how will him having that job will affect history and will affect people around you. How let's say for instance, God forbid, you get into an accident,

00:49:13--> 00:49:24

how the fact that you've delayed been delayed and delayed another person and delayed everybody in the street affects all of their lives, and who they will meet and who will miss meeting.

00:49:25--> 00:49:32

And how that changes everybody's lives including yours is something that is unimaginable is beyond us.

00:49:33--> 00:49:53

So don't distill everything that is happening to me that this is simply suffering. I know a lot So Jen has a plan for everybody. You say but I still have pain. I still have pain. I don't understand it a lot. As you know why did Allah give it we say first of all,

00:49:54--> 00:49:55

no pain will last

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

and a lot as older will raise that in when you meet him.

00:50:01--> 00:50:40

It's not that your memory will be erased, but that pain will go away. So if somebody has trouble with look at the suffering of so and so or the suffering of children or the suffering of animals, a loved one will raise all that suffering away. See, what's the evidence for this very famous Hadith, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that you are the only dunya who unani Allah. So the person who suffered the most in this life, and the more person who enjoyed the greatest luxury and comfort in this life, both of them would be brought, and the one who suffered the most will be of the people agenda and the one who was experiencing the greatest comfort will be of the people of

00:50:40--> 00:50:51

Delphi. This person will be dipped once in Jenna, and that person will be didn't once in Hellfire, just like that didn't dump. And that's it.

00:50:52--> 00:51:00

Then our Lord asked the person who suffered the most How did you experience any pain? And he says, No will lie I did not experience

00:51:02--> 00:51:12

and will ask the person who actually enjoyed himself the most in this life. Did you experienced any pleasure or comfort after that dip in Hellfire, it says will lie I did not experience any.

00:51:14--> 00:51:18

So all of this evaporates and will not exist.

00:51:19--> 00:51:25

So you're saying why is it that Allah azza wa jal lets people experience that suffering or that pain in this life.

00:51:27--> 00:51:32

It's a it's actually an important component of it. The remember the part that we talked about

00:51:33--> 00:51:35

having freedom of choice,

00:51:36--> 00:51:41

you cannot have freedom of choice. If there are no bad choices,

00:51:42--> 00:51:49

if there is no pain, if there is no suffering, there is no freedom of choice. So freedom of choice means what

00:51:51--> 00:51:56

the choice does to give me the freedom to choose or the ability to choose between right and wrong,

00:51:57--> 00:51:59

helping and hurting,

00:52:00--> 00:52:04

advancing people's benefits or harming them.

00:52:05--> 00:52:06

Good and Evil,

00:52:08--> 00:52:20

relief, or pain and suffering. That's what freedom of choice means. So Allah has written for people to actually have the ability to choose a law must give them the ability to commit evil,

00:52:21--> 00:52:30

the ability to kill, and steal, the ability to inflict pain and suffering, and make other people cry.

00:52:31--> 00:52:54

They must have that ability, and for them to choose not to do so but to do what a lot of them love. So this is there and that is there. Without that there is no freedom of choice. And one benefit of a lot allowing people those who choose evil to choose evil is that by that righteousness will also become clear.

00:52:55--> 00:53:42

And then the people who are righteous will rise to defend righteousness to defend what Allah loves, against proponents of evil. So whenever you see evil on the rise, that is a good sign in a sense, why? Because that is a sign or a call for the righteous to also rise and combat that evil and a lot loves that loves the fact that human beings who love a lot will rise and fight the evil that Allah zillion hates. Why does Allah love that? And this brings us some shout out to the point of why did Allah instill evil on the face of this earth? And this opposition, between good and evil? Why did Allah place the sheath on? Why there's a lot less of the love for people to rise and oppose evil? Is

00:53:42--> 00:53:43

it easy?

00:53:46--> 00:53:48

It's not easy. What does it require?

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

For you to actually fight evil? What does it require?

00:53:54--> 00:53:55

courage, and

00:53:56--> 00:54:00

the Word of God and, and tarbiyah?

00:54:02--> 00:54:03

And will it cost you

00:54:05--> 00:54:20

severely sometimes sacrifice, guess what I was getting at or what you said is excellent. So just get what I wanted to reach a sacrifice. That is you could be comfortable in your own home with your own family having your own money.

00:54:21--> 00:54:58

Just say that says I don't want to do anything about this. I don't want to like you know, jeopardize any of these things. But when you decide to combat to face evil, you risk losing everything. So actually, you lose your comfort and peace of mind. And you lose your money and you lose your loved one. And some of us lose their lives. And these are the most precious things that we have. We love them a lot put that love in us yet. When will you lose all of that when you start loving a lot more than you love this. And without actually that test. You will not be able to develop that love

00:55:01--> 00:55:11

Because that test is the thing that is going to actually challenge you. If everything is fine, the love of Allah and righteousness in you is dormant is sleeping,

00:55:12--> 00:55:54

sleeping. There's nothing actually to ignite it to spark it. But then when you find an evil and you rush to try to save somebody, righteousness has started to grow. And if you put your him and her before yourself, then you understand what sacrifice is. And if you think to yourself, Allah loves this, but I love money. Allah loves this, but I love my family. And if I do what Allah loves, I'm going to lose them but you do what Allah loves. That means that you love a lot more than you love these things. And then the love of Allah develops and you start loving a lot more than you love everything else. And this is why Allah had put you on this earth

00:55:55--> 00:56:30

to extract from you what is already dormant in you, potentially, but to actually extract from you loving a lot more than anything else. And when you love a lot more than anything else, you'll be in general, this is why Allah created you to love So when we say we're gonna have to do our insert in the early afternoon, I did not create Jenin insert except to worship me this is what it means to worship Me does not mean simply just for them to pray, just movements just for them to get this occur. And just for them to go to Hajj. These are means

00:56:31--> 00:56:39

and they're necessary till you die. You can never stop doing them. But they are a means towards what knowing a lot and loving a loss of Hannah with that

00:56:41--> 00:56:44

and doing the right thing despite obstacles.

00:56:45--> 00:56:47

So this is what makes you different than Is it

00:56:49--> 00:56:51

okay, okay, I'm sorry.

00:56:52--> 00:56:56

We're gonna stop. So this is what makes you different than Angel. So the last thing inshallah that let's see,

00:56:58--> 00:56:59

how are you different than angels?

00:57:01--> 00:57:03

angels Do they have that struggle?

00:57:04--> 00:57:46

No, they don't have that desire, and don't have the temptations of the shaman. And there are not here are in this life, struggling against evil, they're up there. So the angels of Allah are very different than you. And if you're able to actually win that test, and love a lot more than you love this world, you'll be better than the invisible and this is what Allah created human beings so that he can put them through this test and extract out of them the best of the best of all of us creation and without evil relative evil non pure, that would not be a possibility.

00:57:47--> 00:57:51

So this is insha Allah as much as I could, you know muster

00:57:53--> 00:58:09

a discussion about but of course I'll leave inshallah the rest for you to ask. If there are questions, you need to ask them Sharla or points that I did not cover? Mashallah, do let me know that. There's this thing that question you did not cover, available inshallah, to do that

00:58:10--> 00:58:13

next week in shop, if there's anything.

00:58:15--> 00:58:15

Yes.

00:58:25--> 00:58:26

Add to

00:58:28--> 00:58:30

the gist of all

00:58:34--> 00:58:34

the data

00:58:37--> 00:58:40

Zeon is essentially

00:58:48--> 00:58:48

and we're making it

00:58:56--> 00:58:58

it requires sacrifice.

00:59:38--> 00:59:41

Okay, so the question the Father has is that

00:59:42--> 01:00:00

related to what we talked about is that sacrificing for the sake of Allah xojo that is the purpose of our life on this earth and that if a person fails to sacrifice for the sake of Allah, in a case, for instance, where that choice will jeopardize his family's security or his family

01:00:00--> 01:00:42

release, you know, well being, and then a person fails to make that choice. Does that mean that that person does not love Allah azza wa jal? So that person is not going to Jelena? No, it doesn't mean that, because what we're talking about insha, Allah is that at at a basic level, there has to be that sacrifice. So we do actually have that basic love for a lot of xojo if we perform a lot of obligations. So if you're committing, you know, you're performing your solder, despite the fact that you like to do something else, but you're coming to the masjid and performing or so that you're giving, despite loving money, you're going to have to despite loving money, you so you're, you're at

01:00:42--> 01:01:22

least doing the obligations, that minimum level of love is there. And that is the thing that will take a person to gentlemen, of course, the person the more that he develops his worship, the more that he prays to Allah azza wa jal, here's a voluntary, or when he's faced with a choice between Helen and Haram, and he chooses the Hillel, even though it is costly, the more that he does that, the greater that love that he will have for Allah azza wa jal, but if sometimes we are weak, sometimes we don't make that choice. It just simply means that we've lacked the strength of a man at that point, but it does not do much to help fight. So yeah, and inshallah it's not terrifying, that

01:01:22--> 01:01:26

if you are not that strong, that that means that you're going to go to

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

war. Yeah.

01:01:29--> 01:01:30

Yeah.

01:01:36--> 01:01:38

Topic of confusing, right.

01:01:50--> 01:01:50

Here's

01:01:52--> 01:01:54

the major things, the big things

01:01:55--> 01:01:56

the small things that

01:01:57--> 01:01:58

makes the world

01:01:59--> 01:02:00

to meet them some that

01:02:02--> 01:02:03

we believe them

01:02:04--> 01:02:06

clarify that point.

01:02:13--> 01:02:14

Okay.

01:02:16--> 01:02:33

Exam Exactly, exactly. The question the brother is that he had heard someone mentioned that there is a doubt when it comes to the big point is a big decisions, the big things, but when the small things, the small details that a lot of that besides them as he goes on.

01:02:34--> 01:02:38

And of course, that that belief is wrong is absolutely wrong.

01:02:39--> 01:02:50

That Allah xojo destiny, everything big and small, nothing escaping his knowledge, and nothing escaping his plan, there is no reason to distinguish between the big and the small.

01:02:51--> 01:03:28

And even, you know, trying to distinguish between them, how do you know what is big and how to do what is small, sometimes the smallest really big, and it leads to other big things as well. She really that distinction is not in itself valid. And it lacks any evidence from the origin and from the sooner the evidence and actually overwhelmingly points to the other in the opposite direction that a lot is his origin. You know, when he says that there's no small leaf that falls except he knows about it, no brain drop, except that he knows about it, except that it is with a loss destiny. It tells you that every small thing a lot has it and controls it right. And then only happens when a

01:03:28--> 01:03:44

lot wants it to happen. But yeah, I mean for that, yeah, no, hold on, hold on, uh, you know, it's, it's, it's easy, but complex, and it's complex, when you have no knowledge and you talk about it, then you can be easily misguided. And you can just, you know, come up with very strange sort of opinions about it.

01:03:46--> 01:03:51

I know it's late, so I don't blame you. If you don't have any questions. Yeah, yeah, for me.

01:03:54--> 01:03:56

Now, maybe the age is destined. And there is

01:03:58--> 01:04:01

let me mentioned this earlier from the prophets of Allah while he was in them.

01:04:02--> 01:04:46

So let's explain it, it's good to explain. And I have been a new level for God whoops, a lot of years today for the asahiyama he says the one who would like his life to be extended his age to be extended. And for his risk to actually be abundant to increase, let him connect with his kin for him being kind to his, his family. So, of course, the scholars have asked, you know, how is it that your life can be extended, it is already destined? So what does it mean? It means that a lot of zoton knows who already knows that you can be kind to your kin, and he's going to extend your life and it's going to be like that, but they said, it'd be written like that, you know, with the angels,

01:04:46--> 01:04:59

especially with the angels of Allah. If that person is not going to be kind to his family, he lives till he's 16. If he's going to his family, he loves that he is 17. Right? And Allah knows are you going to do this

01:05:00--> 01:05:35

Are you going to do that and a lot knows what your age is going to be. So this is a lot xojo prompting you that if you actually want to live, because you don't have no idea how long you're going to be living the life, you want to live longer. And if you want a life to give you more money, one of the causes for you living longer, and actually having more money is actually being nice to your family. So when you make the your family a lot will cause you to live longer. So it'd be a cause, like other causes as well, like, if you exercise if you eat well, these are all causes, not definite causes, but probable causes for you to live longer. So it's the same thing.

01:05:36--> 01:05:40

I just want to see if there's anyone else before input, okay.

01:05:49--> 01:05:51

Is there any evidence

01:05:56--> 01:05:58

and that basically confirms that

01:05:59--> 01:06:13

sometimes the father is written conditional like, like an example, as you indicate, that if such and such person does this, then it will be will be given to us or otherwise, I believe,

01:06:22--> 01:06:30

oh, it's, I wouldn't call it like a loop or a way out of the huddle. Right. If it's written conditionally, it's in a sense,

01:06:31--> 01:06:40

a lot xojo presenting humanity with that option, him knowing very well what choice they're going to make. So just like for instance, you know, like I mentioned to the brother,

01:06:41--> 01:07:18

if someone can say, and why do why shouldn't we exercise have already destined to live a particular amount of time or eat well, with all of these things are contributing factors that will help. And Allah had already embedded that in your age, that is if that person, and he knows whether you're going to do it or not. So it there's no escaping it, if a man knows you're going to be doing it, you're going to be doing it. So if you exercise and if you do this, so you're going to live long. And if you're not doing it, that your life may be short, right? It may not happen, but typically, that's what do you think about so all these causes are all through the embedded in Allah's knowledge

01:07:18--> 01:07:30

and embedded in what Allah has decided for you. So you'll be doing them your choice, but they will influence how long you're going to be living, how healthy you will be? How prosperous your family is going to be. So it's all already there.

01:07:36--> 01:07:37

Question? Yeah.

01:07:44--> 01:08:34

But I love Kiki, so the power of the mothers to app or let's say anyone any, but particularly the mothers do is very strong, can it change the other? So the prophets of the law, it was hitting them said LA, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, or Alice destiny that is coming down is not going to be pushed back except by and again, this ties to what we have talked about here and over here. Meaning that what are the what is the profits always in the mean? Unless destiny is always destiny, right. But a lot, so agenda just to show you the virtue of and the power of allowing destined something to come down. So sickness, or poverty, or an accident, and then somebody already will be making and

01:08:34--> 01:09:16

that will come up and push away that cobalt from Allah zildjian and change it. Okay. Now, here's the question, does Allah know that you're going to be making this job? Okay, so it's not problematic. Okay. So what should I do? Why am I making this, if Allah knows that I'm making is because if you don't do it, okay, it's just like, if you don't go to work, you're not earning money you follow, you're not going to earn money if you don't work. Same thing, if you're not going to make this, you're not going to get that thing. Allah has made it consequential, he's going to be making she's going to make content that will save her child. So you have to make it so when you make it, actually

01:09:16--> 01:09:25

haba could be coming down with whatever right that's something that you hate, and we'll take it away, but already a lot notice that you're going to be making this too so it's not new to a lot a lot already knows.

01:09:27--> 01:09:27

That makes sense.

01:09:29--> 01:09:29

Okay,

01:09:30--> 01:09:31

yes.

01:09:47--> 01:10:00

Okay, inshallah, thank you. So the question is that Allah azza wa jal is All Merciful, but it says that the non believers are going to be in Hellfire forever and ever. So how can it be that Allah could be so many

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

merciful, and yet we'll put

01:10:03--> 01:10:10

the non believers in Hellfire forever number. So inshallah I'll give you two answers to this, the first answer is,

01:10:11--> 01:10:54

rest assured that Allah is All Merciful, and rest assured that these are the slaves of Allah xojo. So the way that Allah will deal with them, is both adjust and merciful at the same time, right? So Leave it, leave it up to Allah zildjian and how he will deal with them, and what he will do with them. Because these no matter what happens, these are not ours. They belong to Allah and the law, we'll deal with them. Right? So let it be up to Allah as the origin Allah will deal with them as he sees fit. So that's the first one. So we shouldn't trouble ourselves. We're thinking about it. What says we'll leave it up to a lot. Yeah, Allah as a Saudi saddam said in the Quran into a demo. Fair

01:10:54--> 01:11:12

enough about the case if you punish them, they are your slaves, meaning I have no power over it. You know, what is best for them and what best to do with them? We definitely hope so in the kantele, as usual, Hakeem, but if you forgive them, you are al Aziz and Hakeem are the powerful and the wise. So that's one thing. That's one answer.

01:11:14--> 01:11:23

There's another answer, and I usually don't share it unless somebody asks this type of question if it is a problematic, something problematic to them, or for some non believers.

01:11:24--> 01:11:55

The majority opinion, the majority, the overwhelming number of scholars historically have all said, No, the majority have said that when a lot puts the non believers in gentlemen in Hellfire in Johanna, they'll be there forever. In the there is no end to their punishment. A minority among Muslim scholars have said, there will be a time they will spend a long time and they'll fire but there will be a time when Hellfire will expire.

01:11:57--> 01:11:58

Sorry.

01:11:59--> 01:12:40

Yeah. So that that that that is a minority opinion that Hellfire will expire. Meaning that a lot of xojo did not create. That's their argument, then one of them is a new client, who when he talks about it seems to be favoring that opinion, though he does not come wholeheartedly and say yes, but he seems to be leaning in that direction. He says a lot of zoldan he says it's conceivable that Allah would create a people to plus forever inconceivable that he will create a people no matter what they do for him to punish them forever and ever and ever. So then they will have to come a time. Yes, they will spend a long time in hellfire. But there will come a time when Hellfire itself

01:12:40--> 01:12:55

will cease to exist, will expire, and they will no longer be punished. So that's a minority opinion among them, and they do cite some evidence for it. So if that's something that is troubling, you know that that is that there, that opinion is also there.

01:13:11--> 01:13:15

So that if they live forever, they would be committing the same crimes forever.

01:13:17--> 01:13:19

That's why they are in Hellfire forever.

01:13:21--> 01:13:30

Okay, so that there is so much evil in them, right, that it's not really extracted by all that, maybe maybe about a Salafi force hearing that now.

01:13:32--> 01:13:51

Now, I'm not No, that's true. That's true. But I'm just responding to a common question of how could Allah zoetis so I'm saying that there is that majority opinion and there's this small minority opinion? Yes, I understand. But it's just in case it's really troubling a person, at least they understand that there is more than

01:13:54--> 01:14:13

That's true. And that's what the majority of Muslim scholars will say is that they've been presented with evidence after evidence. And they've rejected it all and rejected Allah as a surgeon and committed so many crimes against Allah. That you know, as you said, they don't deserve mercy anymore. So that that's them. I'm not going to deny that is.

01:14:16--> 01:14:20

You have any is still okay. I just want to say no, you have a question.

01:14:33--> 01:14:59

So yeah, so if someone is angry, and they make dua against their children, especially a parent, and then afterwards, you know, they go and regret it and they negus too far and they ask Allah, Allah to cancel it. We say we hope so. So this is making the opposite dog make the opposite. Not just simply it's too far. But see ally was angry ally you know, bless them, so make the opposite. A good dog opposite the battle.

01:15:00--> 01:15:39

That you mean, and we hope that a lot is it and we'll accept it. If a person is we say is unaware, and you know, they say what they really are not in control of what they're saying. And we say that they're not responsible for it. If they're conscious of what they're saying they're angry when they're conscious that they are making two I can so on. So even though they're angry, but they're aware of what they're saying, that's still a dot. And that's why we're why we're saying it's di is very, very serious. So if you're angry, don't involve a lot. Right? Don't involve a Leo like kill so and so of course, so and so take this that is that is serious, because you do not know, because the

01:15:39--> 01:16:11

Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in the hudy letter on YT, comala and fusi como de oladipo, it says, Don't make against your wealth against yourselves against your children, lest or perhaps you will coincide with a time where Allah would be accepting do it, you'll accept it. So it could be you're making that up. And you're conscious of it. If you're not conscious of what you're saying is different. You're conscious of it. Luck could accept it. So yes, if that happens, just go back and make the opposite to and ask for forgiveness and reopen that allow our children to take it away.

01:16:18--> 01:16:19

I'm sorry.

01:16:29--> 01:16:55

That it's destined that you're going to do this. Yes, of course, it's destined that you're going to do this right. So it definitely right. But you're still responsible for this. We're we're saying that you had control, and you couldn't stop doing it. If you decide to stop doing it right after you after that after the fact. It's done. You know, okay, it had to happen. But before the thing happens, you have a choice. But you can stop it from happening. So that's what we're saying tried to stop.

01:16:58--> 01:17:00

missing? Yeah.

01:17:11--> 01:17:12

Difficult to say that they never

01:17:17--> 01:17:18

know.

01:17:26--> 01:17:52

Now, America logic is that question is about non believers who did not receive the message of Islam or the pure message of Islam? Or would they know about Islam? Is all this misinformation? So, will they have an excuse before Allah azza wa jal? And the answer your simple answer is yes. So the one who's responsible for Allah, the non believers responsible for Allah is the one who received the full message of Islam, and they rejected it.

01:17:53--> 01:18:31

So did not receive a flawed ideas of flawed ideas about the Koran, or lies about Mohammed, so the lady was sitting down, or misinformation about Islam and its Sharia. That's the only thing that they know. And then based on that they decide not to accept Islam or to reject it or not investigated, that person did not receive the message, for them to actually have received the message, meaning that they've received the pure message of Islam, when the person receives it, and he has no doubts about it, and there is a question been answered and then decides not to follow, then he is responsible, and he will have no excuse before a loss should afford that rejection.

01:18:35--> 01:18:40

Not even saw they heard about Islam, but they did not investigate even so

01:18:42--> 01:19:15

they still have the means to investigate that everybody, almost not everybody, but a lot of people have the means to investigate, but not everybody has the reason right. So not until the message actually comes to them. And they were presented with that message, because before that, we cannot say that they received the message, the messenger did not come to them. So how could the messenger come to them, the message itself will be carried to them and a person will talk to them about it and clear any doubts that may have been money any barring that we can see them they actually have received it.

01:19:16--> 01:19:25

Because I personally, yes, Islam is there but they may not feel any reason for them to go and investigate what is so special about it. So sometimes it actually needs to come to them.

01:20:02--> 01:20:07

So you're talking about a dream. So a dream and the interpretation of that dream is that there's going to be a loss

01:20:09--> 01:20:16

of something right? So what should you do about it? How do you respond to it should you make as a lot for it not to happen should you make give sadaqa

01:20:18--> 01:20:59

dreams in their interpretation are tricky. So you don't know exactly if that actually what it means or not. So first of all, I mean, if you have a dream only offer it for interpretation to someone who knows how to interpret a dream. And most people don't know how to interpret dreams, and don't rely on websites, and don't rely on books, because that's not really comprehensive, or highly accurate. And even sometimes what you read in a book that may apply to a particular situation, but not yours. So a person who will interpret a dream will not only interpret a dream based on what you see, but will ask Who are you agender? Sometimes, what's your circumstances? And based on that, based on like

01:20:59--> 01:21:36

a collection of all of this, then that dream won't be interpreted? So that's one, your question is good, and we'll need to think about it. Because a couple of things come to mind. But I let me think about it in sha Allah and give you an answer later. So that actually be giving you the right answer, because I remember that the prophets on his symptoms, you know, saw what predicted the loss of the Battle of the hood. But he didn't do anything about it. And he there was no, no, I don't recall it. There was a two hour in something that he had made to avoid that so let me think about it in sha Allah investigated more, and I'll come back to you.

01:21:40--> 01:21:41

Is there anything else?

01:21:43--> 01:21:57

But there's anything related to this topic in sha Allah today and talk about what you want me to talk about next week, let me not sure. And otherwise does not come along here for attending and for your questions. So kind of along with some bigger shadowing data and stuff.
