00:00:11--> 00:00:31

So, as I said, the printout for the fate of the translation in English is available upstairs inshallah. And we will check the translations are going through, it's not my own translation. So we'll compare that to the text and you can make the necessary adjustments as we go through it.

00:00:33--> 00:00:37

But before we go into the text and explain what that text is, and

00:00:38--> 00:00:43

who the author is, inshallah, we'll start with an introduction.

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

And that introduction,

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

explains, what is it that we're doing and why we're doing it?

00:00:51--> 00:01:09

As obviously, you need to emphasize before you do anything, you know, why are you studying this thing? Not other things? And what's the importance of this thing? So what are we doing in our lives? It's really a study of our kingdom. I hope inshallah for the next four weeks. So the question to ask is, first of all, what is our

00:01:11--> 00:01:18

what is our feeder, so our data is free. So let's take it back to the Arabic language what is a pita.

00:01:19--> 00:01:23

So it does anything that is firm and solid, right?

00:01:24--> 00:01:27

Anything that becomes solid solidifies is strong,

00:01:29--> 00:01:34

is our data and not in the army like to to tie a knot, right?

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

It's cold.

00:01:37--> 00:02:09

Because you fasten this knot, right? And it becomes solid, whatever you tie this knot over or you know, to hold on to it means in its place. So or aka has that meaning in Dominica, Safina do for the Nika the marriage ceremony. It's the commitment. So anything that has, it's a commitment, something that is from something that is strong. So taping, especially the word.

00:02:11--> 00:02:24

Something that is part of your Akita is something that is firm, as if you've tied the knot around it, and confirmed it in your heart. So it's the firm confirm commitment, and believe that you have in

00:02:25--> 00:02:28

this, what aqidah is not something that you

00:02:30--> 00:02:33

have suspicions about, it's not probability, but certainty

00:02:34--> 00:02:37

and confirmation in your heart.

00:02:39--> 00:02:47

And, you know, if you think about all the information that we have, all that we believe in, they're not all the same.

00:02:48--> 00:03:28

And all that we believe in, it's not all the same. You can say about everything that you believe that you are committed to it, especially in an emotional sense. So one plus one equals two. Is that an emotional information that you possess? No, it's just something theoretical that you have in your mind or practical theoretical plus practical, but you don't really care about that much. Right? It doesn't make you angry or upset or happy. When somebody says yes or no to it. It's just information unless you're part of a camp of mathematicians who, you know, opposes another campus, something different. But there's that type of information, right? somebody you know, unless you're in an

00:03:28--> 00:03:50

argument with someone, you say China exists, somebody says China does not exist, unless really this issue matters. Do you really care, whether whatever, whatever he believes, unless you just want to find out that he had upset, so not all information, right? Has that type of commitment to adopt data, on the other hand, is the type of information that you really believe in and you're committed to.

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

And it makes you happy makes you upset?

00:03:54--> 00:04:01

When someone denies it? Someone questions, something that you really are committed to, and you don't even doubt.

00:04:03--> 00:04:15

And it is synonymous. If you think about it, it is really synonymous with our Word of email, our idea of email. So you don't have say, for instance, I have a man that one plus one equals two.

00:04:16--> 00:04:18

I believe a man is

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

a man is believing something and then reacting to it.

00:04:23--> 00:04:26

That's why a person can believe that there is one God

00:04:28--> 00:04:37

but not a man in God. The difference between the two know the difference. I believe, I know that sometimes a lot of times we translate the man has believed.

00:04:38--> 00:04:57

But he man is more than I believe this. I believe in it. And I also react to it with love and fear and reliance and all these things. So a person believes that a lot is there, but does not want to listen to Allah and wants to disobey Him. Does that person have any man? Does he have belief in God?

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

famous example is, at least at least has believed

00:05:05--> 00:05:28

does not deny our last panel data but does not have. So imagine is that information that you have, that you're certain about, and your reaction to it in terms of commitment. So imagine in a loss of data is not just I believe in Allah, I believe in Allah. And I also adhere to that believe, and I'm committed to that belief, and I have no doubts about.

00:05:30--> 00:05:47

So once I remember, I said a statement, I said, and I said, deficiency, I was talking about the law, and I was trying to make links between them. And I said that deficiency in a flop is deficiency in Africa, and deficiency and deficiency. And

00:05:48--> 00:05:56

so my brother came over here afterwards, and he says, you know, this is very interesting. The first time I hear this, it's very interesting. So what does that mean?

00:05:57--> 00:06:01

He said, you know, okay, who said this also? And I told the reason that I said,

00:06:03--> 00:06:05

is that what is it that when we think about

00:06:06--> 00:06:13

is the only belief about Allah Subhana Allah? No, is everything Islamic that you believe in?

00:06:14--> 00:06:16

So part of your attitude as well as your

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

manners and character that a lucky man did this, but Allah loves that

00:06:23--> 00:06:39

part of your Akita is also that I should honor this Muslim, brother and sister and not attack them and not you know, assault them, etc, etc. Now, when you violate that, the means that you believe there is compromised or not, or is weak or not.

00:06:40--> 00:06:47

When you when you attack another Muslim or violate their rights, it means that you will believe about their sanctity is weak.

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

Otherwise, you wouldn't do it.

00:06:51--> 00:06:57

Right or wrong? So is it that doesn't mean what I believe but what I believe and I firmly hold on to.

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

So how do you see a person you know, he says, My athlete is formally that I believe in our last panel data, but then he violates that in the stand.

00:07:07--> 00:07:09

terms of theoretical believing you may have.

00:07:11--> 00:07:32

But it turns out, there's something you really deeply you know, hold on to that Peter is so happy that it's not just simply man. But also Yeah, I'm sorry, it does not simply believe his belief and commitment to that belief, basically, is enough. And we'll be talking in sha Allah about later in show when we go through it. So

00:07:34--> 00:07:38

and then, you know, I went back because I wanted you to really come to me, because a couple of

00:07:40--> 00:07:43

audios like [???]load vanish. If it was me ask them what is the difference between

00:07:46--> 00:07:46

a man and a man?

00:07:48--> 00:07:51

It is just a modern term that we use to describe a man.

00:07:52--> 00:07:56

So obviously, if you say there's deficiency in a flaw, obviously, there's a deficiency in

00:07:58--> 00:08:17

a deficiency demand means deficiency. So it's also translated into a deficiency of RPT as well. So don't want us to think about that when we're talking about all these theoretical things abstract things, about a loss of panel data that would really bend the totality of what you should believe in and be committed to is European Islam. Why study?

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

Why do you think?

00:08:21--> 00:08:22

It's because it's the basis?

00:08:24--> 00:08:42

How does a person become Muslim, when they believe in the basics of Islam, a loss of data is one deserves to be worshipped alone is prophets. Audio seldom is His Prophet, and messenger, etc, etc, etc. So you become a Muslim, and you continue to be a Muslim, if you're a PETA is right and intact and pure.

00:08:43--> 00:08:51

And you leave Islam, when you violate these basics of Aikido, sometimes, and for some people without even knowing,

00:08:53--> 00:08:59

without even knowing that they violated these comments in the last panel with that, or violated the basics of our feeder,

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

or their athlete, there could be good, but they don't have the strength and they don't have the information, they don't have the protection to safeguard themselves from doubts. So when someone presents them with an argument,

00:09:14--> 00:09:43

or counter evidence, or makes them suspect, their belief in Allah and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and would have been revealed that he does not have or she does not have the strength of aqidah, how to counter? Why do I believe in this? What is the evidence behind it? How do I refute, at least for yourself? How do I refute the other person what is wrong with their argument? What is wrong with the arguments of the atheist are going to host those who deny the profit of all the profits, or the profit or loss

00:09:44--> 00:09:48

or the day of judgment or, or or what is wrong with their argument? So

00:09:51--> 00:09:57

let's say a heart attack that got inherited and your parents told you this.

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

So you believe

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

You want to them as good as we can school, you've been taught this, this, this this at a basic level. And then you attended 123 years old, and then you left. So this is what you know. But you don't know why you know what you don't know the evidence behind it, you don't know how to defend it, if you need to defend it. And then you open yourself up, especially when you talk to other people, or you go to university and you take classes in the social sciences and philosophy and they start attacking a man religion in general belief in God in general, and you hear all of that, and you don't have the defense,

00:10:35--> 00:10:38

you don't have the protection is weak. So

00:10:39--> 00:10:43

it can be if your email is weak, and my email is weak, it can be compromised easily.

00:10:44--> 00:11:13

But if you know, in detail, it's less likely that that will happen. So what we're advocating is advanced religious literacy among Muslims, is beyond the basics. All of us know the basics. As long as population and is there, we have no emotional attachment to all of this, then but beyond the basics, do you understand arguments for and against

00:11:14--> 00:11:55

the existence of a loss of Hannah with that, and not that everybody needs to do it. But if you're going to be in a context, or you're talking to someone, or you're taking classes, or listening to something online or offline, that is going to attack this, if you are not ready for it, it's going to compromise and endanger your own theater. And you are Muslim. So Pamela coming from different walks of life with different types of education presenting to you, superficial understanding of what Islam is a superficial understanding of what a lot of Allah hates. And if we tried to speak the truth, their reaction is ignorance. And that is again, because the athlete has not been built up, he

00:11:55--> 00:12:13

does not be protected and fortified. So we need to do this. Otherwise, what happens is a person either becomes an atheist, or starts thinking as some start thinking of, there's no difference between Islam and other things. As long as you're worshipping, add, everything takes you to Allah.

00:12:14--> 00:12:21

So whether you're Christian, or Jewish, or Buddhist, or Hindu, or whatever it is, just worship. And as long as you're a good person, you'll go to heaven, right?

00:12:23--> 00:12:24

You may have heard this for now.

00:12:25--> 00:12:28

Yeah. So you hear some Muslims who grew up Muslims

00:12:29--> 00:12:50

believe these things? Why is that the case? The foundation wasn't strong. And then that let's call it propaganda, overcame them so as to be started believing all of these things. And, you know, there is no end to what we believe erroneous, Lee, because, again, the theater has now clear and solid foundations.

00:12:52--> 00:13:13

So this isn't what we want to do, please study some of the basics of al Qaeda. And we'll try to relate it as much as possible to contemporary ideas, if possible, what is the best way to study that data? But before answering that question, what is the source of our data? Where does it come from? And that's an important question. So let me ask you what is the source of our data? What does it come from?

00:13:14--> 00:13:27

The Quran and the Sunnah? The Quran and the Sunnah. Basically, if you want to know what to believe about Allah, what to believe about his prophet, what they believe about this rule, you're looking for information coming to you from decrease

00:13:28--> 00:13:29

the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:13:30--> 00:13:31

Now the intellect

00:13:33--> 00:13:37

can be an additional source, but this source is limited by

00:13:38--> 00:13:43

the intellect meaning your mind and my mind, on our own. And this is really important, by the way,

00:13:44--> 00:13:53

the mind on its own the intellect, on its own can confirm certain things about the Creator, but not everything, and not in detail.

00:13:56--> 00:13:59

Okay, so what can the intellect the firm about

00:14:01--> 00:14:04

all of this can afford certainty that there's greater

00:14:06--> 00:14:08

right with certainty than those who deny

00:14:10--> 00:14:15

the existence of a creator raised on their minds are going against the law and against them?

00:14:17--> 00:14:21

If you go back to the early books, and he says, This is necessary knowledge, no.

00:14:22--> 00:14:35

There is no really doubt about even for some of the other night we say what is the evidence for the existence of God, this is what you need an evidence for the existence of God. God is clearer and more profound than any evidence that

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

you understand how it is. And someone today will be asking you prove to me that God exists for you and when we need to do that, and some people but I'm saying for an add in that existed a while back, we will laugh at this because why? Because anything that you're going to bring in to prove the existence of God is inferior to God in certainty, because God is the most certain of all sorts of these

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

How does any of this exist? If there is no creator, it cannot stand on its own. And it's something as simple as your passing that somebody gives an example you passing by a piece of land, it's empty. You come back a year or two years later, and you find that there's a building, you say, it's accident, it's accidental that that building is there. No one believes. No, no one believes it, or attach any authenticity, or veracity to that type of thinking. So in the same way, they say, Allah is clear than any other any proof. So you don't need proofs for the existence of our last panel of data. But anyway, going back to the topic of what did what can be intellectual

00:15:38--> 00:15:40

inference that there is a creator

00:15:42--> 00:15:45

that affirms that this creator is knowledgeable and wise.

00:15:46--> 00:15:56

Why? Because this creation testifies to it, the one who made it must be knowledgeable, must be wise, also must be powerful.

00:15:58--> 00:16:03

So it can confirm certain things about the Creator. But beyond that, it doesn't know what to say.

00:16:04--> 00:16:06

You know, it doesn't know what to say,

00:16:07--> 00:16:19

can confirm a lot about hereafter, then I'd like to come it can speculate about it. Yes, there may be, but it cannot be certain about what happens after that cannot be certain about

00:16:20--> 00:16:34

loss and profits or not, it can speculate that there's probability that a lot of sense profits, but on its own, that bind on its own may not be certain. So the mind on its own cannot tell you a lot about a lot of data. But what can

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

a lot

00:16:37--> 00:16:53

in detail, and certainty. Yes, this is who Allah is the these are all the names of Allah, this is what Allah does. This is what Love does not do. This is what he had prepared for us after our death. This is what happens to us above our death. So there's always a limit to the intellect.

00:16:55--> 00:17:04

Always a limit to the intellect beyond which it cannot tell you, it cannot assist you. And famously write a sharpie, who is the teacher

00:17:07--> 00:17:22

who's the author of the book that we'll be studying in Sha, Allah famously said that as your site has an end, also your intellect has an end. That is anything that you possess, all of your power, eventually has a limit to it. I can't see beyond this point.

00:17:24--> 00:17:28

I can't hear beyond this point, right. And I also cannot think beyond this point.

00:17:29--> 00:17:44

There will always be a point beyond which no matter what you are and who you are, you only speculate. I'm thinking maybe, maybe not. But you cannot confirm this, with certainty and evidence. One of these things is the soul itself.

00:17:45--> 00:17:58

What is its nature? Where does it come from? Where does it go? What is this energy that we possess, we don't know. We can study it as a phenomenon, right? But we don't really know what it is. So the intellect can confirm something, but not everything.

00:17:59--> 00:18:08

So the problem here comes from people who are trying to take the intellect, as the standard and oppose with their intellect with

00:18:12--> 00:18:13

and that cannot be done.

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

The intellect

00:18:17--> 00:18:20

the intellect, can guide you to a loss revelation,

00:18:21--> 00:18:22

but does not supersede it

00:18:24--> 00:18:52

does not supersede it because the intellect is telling you, I am limited, but I can take you all the way to prove to you that this is from God, and this is a prophet from God. Now listen to them. Because I cannot teach you what they're teaching. But if you take everything that Allah is teaching with his prophets, obviously I'm teaching and you say I'm gonna subject this to the standards of my own intellectual, you know, limited intellectual being subjected to it, you will reject a lot if

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

you say, no, this doesn't make sense. This doesn't make sense. This doesn't make sense. And it's not that it doesn't make sense. It doesn't make sense to you,

00:19:01--> 00:19:09

and how you're thinking, and it's beyond, you know, your ability to comprehend. So,

00:19:10--> 00:19:21

Revelation brings with the mind is unable to reach not with the mind can confirm with certainty that it is a contradiction or it is an impossibility.

00:19:23--> 00:19:28

Again, Revelation brings what the mind cannot reach.

00:19:30--> 00:19:42

The Day of Judgment, can you speculate, can you think no punishment? Can you understand? No, you cannot, what happened to us before? Our what is the origin of all of this?

00:19:44--> 00:19:53

So the mind cannot reach revelation teaches you. Revelation never teaches you what is in fact an impossibility to exist. It doesn't teach you that.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

So this is the source of our own in the center. This is where we take it

00:20:01--> 00:20:07

And it's important to include the surname and why because some people will limit their Islam to the

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

if it's in,

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

if it's not in the Quran for the day, what do they say?

00:20:15--> 00:20:38

No, it's not. I don't care about it. It's not true. You know, it's fake fabrications, it's not reliable. It's important to know that your Islam is really based on these two foundations, the Quran and the Sunnah. If you deny all of this, you know, what do you have, you have 100 Industrial on the way that you interpret and understand that what will be your own

00:20:39--> 00:20:42

will be your own because the sooner is the interpreter of the

00:20:44--> 00:20:57

so if you do not allow the sooner meaning you don't allow the prophets of Allah, Allah you send them to interpret the Quran for you, you must find someone else to interpret the Quran for you other than the Prophet, either will be another teacher, another founder or movement or

00:20:59--> 00:21:03

someone else will interpret. So you decide there's going to be the profits, or someone else.

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

Now, what is the best way to study a penis?

00:21:09--> 00:21:11

Does anybody know when we've started to do started a?

00:21:14--> 00:21:15

Let's see. Okay.

00:21:16--> 00:21:21

So what is the best way to study? Now the best way to study data

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

is in fact,

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

the best way to study data is in fact,

00:21:29--> 00:21:46

the books of athletes are useful, I'm gonna tell you why they are useful. But first, I want to tell you why it's the best way to study the fun out of an instrument. How did the Sahaba of the prophets a lot of study aqidah that we have as an individual book of Peter.

00:21:50--> 00:22:22

And they understood their leader, their email and their Islam through it, why is it superior to any other method, because this is how a lot presented. And this is how his prophets a lot he was sent and presented, and it's holistic, and it's integrated. So it's not just information, but it's an information and emotional attachment to it, it speaks to your mind and heart at the same time. If you notice how it talks about the belief about him, it's always tied to your mind and heart at the same time,

00:22:23--> 00:22:41

the information and your reaction and commitment to information and what Allah has a reward for if you believe in it and punishment for a few disbelief in it. So speaks to all of you, at the same time speaks to your insight and to your outside at the same time. And that is the best way to approach and understand.

00:22:43--> 00:22:50

So when you're reading the auto reading, it's reading through the signal profits a lot, how do you send them because sometimes we have this

00:22:51--> 00:22:54

separation in our heads when we're doing tipsy we're not doing

00:22:55--> 00:23:02

when doing dinner, we're not doing a thing that no you're doing at the same time, you just don't notice it, but the data is embedded

00:23:03--> 00:23:10

in the eyes of the last panel data and then the statements of the profits of alarms and so, that is the best way to study it.

00:23:11--> 00:23:12

Now,

00:23:14--> 00:23:17

a time ago we started seeing as as Muslims

00:23:19--> 00:23:25

in a went through generations of Sahaba intervene and so on and so on, we started to notice the emergence of books and

00:23:26--> 00:23:34

why did they emerge? Really, basically, they emerged as a refutation or response to the deviations

00:23:35--> 00:23:53

to the to the law that was happening in the oma. So, they needed to say something they needed to write something to stem the flow of this with ask them what is the flow of that deviation. So, you start hearing statements condensation about either coming from statements condense, summarize statements coming from us.

00:23:55--> 00:24:07

And we response to Oh, there is this bad belief over there. So they will, you know, summarize, you know, when 1234 sentences, this is what you should believe, and they will give it to the people, you notice that the Sahaba notice that

00:24:11--> 00:24:12

and then

00:24:13--> 00:24:15

start writing things about

00:24:17--> 00:24:19

the quality of the book of a man

00:24:22--> 00:24:39

or they would call it a sinner will explain what sin is and Sharla shortly, or they would write a book of Hades, like if you think about, think about it, think about a Buddha Buddha and the rest of the books. And they will have a chapter in it about

00:24:41--> 00:24:41

our data

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

jameos, another persona and so on. And then you have individual books just written in short, and then they grow in length as we move on. Because there are more deviations, more arguments, more evidence needed to refute all of the things that are

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

happening. So this is how things are progressed. And there is a benefit to studying these types of books. What is the benefit of studying these types of books is that you have all of that data condensed in few pages, you can look through it, you can memorize it, you can understand it, it helps you when you want to recall it later. That's a way for you to study that's a path of setting up data. But that's not the only

00:25:26--> 00:25:43

and there's another path and in my opinion, a superior path. That is when you're reading the blog, and we're reading the some of the prophets a lot of focus on on the idea that alone is profit are teaching you and then benefit from it and react to it, because it is teaching the Akita in a holistic as I said, holistic, complete way.

00:25:44--> 00:25:50

You know, notice how somebody, some people may sometimes complain about Peter that is dry.

00:25:51--> 00:25:57

And that when you studied it that sometimes could be dry. Right? But it does, it's not dry if you study it.

00:25:59--> 00:26:12

Right, it's not dry, but it couldn't be dry. Sometimes, if we're studying for some other books, because it gets too entangled in what was said and what that said, then this evidence and that evidence becomes dry for some people. But if you want that

00:26:14--> 00:26:32

pure appetite as a last panel data revealed that and the one that made the Sahaba, who they are, and their followers and their followers, go back to the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet, I've seen them directly. So these are the different looks of our VEDA, let's talk about the meaning of Scrivener, because the title of this book is shut for sooner.

00:26:33--> 00:26:34

So what is to know?

00:26:35--> 00:26:37

So what is to know when you hear it? What do you think about

00:26:38--> 00:26:41

not pertaining to this book, but generally what does suddenly mean?

00:26:42--> 00:26:56

Practice by so mean by practice the practice of the profits of the lawyers in the system that has several meanings depending on the context who's using it. So the people who are using it, they will mean by obligation, and

00:26:58--> 00:27:08

so is this. So now you'll be asked is this center or navigation, right. So this is one way of using it. Another way that people have had equal use it is equivalent to heavy

00:27:09--> 00:27:16

anything that is imported about the profits of law to send them in terms of what he said and what he did and what he described and what he approved.

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

All that stuff.

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

Now, suddenly, in the language in the Arabic language, it means practice or the model or the path that someone has walked.

00:27:28--> 00:27:30

And this is his path, this is his way.

00:27:31--> 00:28:07

This is what he did, what he said and all of that. So when you say this is the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This is his body. This is the path that he won. This is what he left behind. This is his example. So when we say sooner we mean all of this, all of Islam, in essence is sooner and early on that they also use sooner to refer to the proper and right belief in Islam. And it's a part of the right belief in Islam was also referred to as soon as we sometimes also say, this is sooner and that is

00:28:09--> 00:28:12

see the contrast and this is so novices.

00:28:13--> 00:28:29

So, what do we mean by that, that this is something that is innovated religiously, that contradicts the example of the prophets of Allah cinnabar as what we calling Suna is from the path of the prophets of allottee of sin. So it also early on soon also meant the right belief

00:28:30--> 00:28:33

or right belief. So sharp has to know means what?

00:28:35--> 00:28:36

What does it mean?

00:28:38--> 00:28:40

estimation of the right, the right query.

00:28:41--> 00:28:53

What you should be leaving every Muslim should believe this is an explanation of it elusive, and elucidation of what a Muslim should believe about Allah, not his prophet, etc, etc, etc.

00:28:54--> 00:29:06

Now, let's talk a little bit about the author and his name his or his love of isms. And this is where it comes from. He is Abu Ibrahim Ismail

00:29:08--> 00:29:10

Rosina is an Arab tribe.

00:29:11--> 00:29:14

So he was born in the year 175. He

00:29:15--> 00:29:34

born in the year 175. He and he lived all of his life in Egypt. He didn't travel and typically for that time, people would travel to seek knowledge here and there. But apparently in Egypt had its own scars. So he didn't feel the need to travel here and there.

00:29:35--> 00:29:49

And one of his actual prominent teachers, you know, named, named Mohammed is one of his teachers. But his prominent teacher that left a mark on him. And he was his really tourist disciple was a shepherd.

00:29:51--> 00:29:58

So shaqiri right, traveled towards the end of his life, he traveled to Egypt, and he stayed there and he passed away in Egypt.

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

So

00:30:00--> 00:30:38

unloosen he was in Egypt. And he became a student of a sharpie, actually a very close student of a sharpie. And a chef. He praised him, praised him for his intellect praise him for his dedication, praised him for his ability, especially because Amazonia as we would say, became a specialist and felt so he praised him for that ability. And really a shepherd, he left his mark on Amazon, and Amazon he for later when chef he passed away, he was working within a chef. And he authored books in a chef. So chef a we left a mark on Amazon. And whenever he advised him, he follows he's one of these dedicated students,

00:30:39--> 00:30:50

prominent people in a chef that even happens if you're talking about the Chef m&m in general, who are the people who laid the foundations after a shocker, you'd have to mention, and who's

00:30:52--> 00:30:54

so elusive, he was known for being a

00:30:56--> 00:31:11

knowledgeable man, a very pious man, a very, very ascetic person, yet not inclined towards the dunya, or its physicians or money or etc. and very worried, and fearful of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:31:13--> 00:31:19

And also a very smart and eloquent debater that if he wanted to debate, he can debate. And he said, if he would debate,

00:31:20--> 00:31:24

he would win. And to that extent, he said above, and if he were to debate the shape,

00:31:25--> 00:31:39

when so this is how much a chef or a bangala had admired him, and he said, also about him a chef, if you are not happy, that is he's going to champion my opinions. He's going to record them and champion my opinions. And he did that.

00:31:41--> 00:31:50

A lot of chefs advised him to specialize in film. And he focused on this. So we focused on it, and what he wrote, he wrote,

00:31:53--> 00:31:56

and again, one of the foundational books in mme mythemeshop is

00:31:58--> 00:32:11

why am I mentioning all of this, just so you understand the position of a loser need to assure the soon I'm going to tell you that whatever he believes here is really a little bit of a shock. So that's why I'm telling you all of this.

00:32:12--> 00:32:21

So, he offered me and they say that anyone who comes after Amazon has to rely on

00:32:22--> 00:32:24

so in the in it for instance, in the book of

00:32:25--> 00:32:27

books, is a partnership with a

00:32:29--> 00:32:30

striker, he had said this, this this

00:32:32--> 00:32:45

this, this, this, this, this the evidence is this and she was always what summarizing, coding and reporting what Kamala has said and then was on the other hand, Mama died in Egypt in the year 264 he

00:32:47--> 00:33:04

now, why did he write this particular letter? And actually, why did he write this particular letter? You will find that the reason if you know Arabic, you will find that in the text itself, actually, the editors introduction, he tells you why. And the beginning of that letter tells you what

00:33:06--> 00:33:15

the reason is, people started saying things that are accusing him of having or espousing wrong beliefs, when it comes to the

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

outcomes.

00:33:19--> 00:33:25

And also that he argues not based on the Quran and Sunnah, but argues based on his intellect,

00:33:26--> 00:33:30

in opposition to the Quran and Sunnah. So these things were swirling,

00:33:31--> 00:33:32

and people were talking about him.

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

So

00:33:37--> 00:33:40

they wrote him about the introduction to that.

00:33:42--> 00:33:53

And he said to him, can you please explain to us what you believe? See, who wrote back explaining to them exactly what he believes, and affirming that he was upon the belief of a pseudonym, Gemma.

00:33:55--> 00:34:00

Now what Why were these doubts right surrounding him? There are reasons for that,

00:34:02--> 00:34:04

first of all, is that

00:34:05--> 00:34:10

I didn't want to talk about these things, especially the issue of the creativeness of the army.

00:34:11--> 00:34:13

Maybe you've heard of this, or maybe not.

00:34:14--> 00:34:18

But there's a reason right? There's a, there's a story.

00:34:19--> 00:34:20

So what's the story?

00:34:21--> 00:34:42

The story is like, as you know, Muslims started interacting with non Muslims, with foreign fought with philosophy, translating the books of the philosophers, they started all segments of them started believing certain things about God. And it is possible for God to do and be and what is impossible for God to do and be.

00:34:43--> 00:34:48

So based on those beliefs, philosophical beliefs, right, we started to see a group

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

and they named themselves or were given the name of a democracy that was one of their names is called and what does he know? And what does it advocated the belief that the Koran is

00:35:01--> 00:35:08

is not really the word of Allah Subhana Allah. And Allah did not speak it, but Allah created it. Like he creates anything.

00:35:10--> 00:35:21

And he managed to convince. If this is confusing, that's fine. inshallah I'll explain it later. But let me just give you the story we managed to convince to they managed to convince us

00:35:23--> 00:35:29

to actually adopt that belief as the standard believe and then prosecute anyone else was not going to agree with them.

00:35:31--> 00:35:53

And then move on to other calibers, also follow this same path, persecuting anyone who does not believe in it. And then some people died in jail other people, like an another person, like Hamlet stood his ground, they weren't able to keep him in jail, but stood his ground. And, you know, kept the beliefs and values nojima protected and intact until the death of these two hollyford

00:35:55--> 00:36:27

came back and revoke all of that and champion the belief of additional demonic and so it wasn't he was living through all of this. And he didn't want to speak about it. He wanted to affirm that the Quran is the book of Allah, Allah, but he didn't want to say anything extra. He was afraid. And he says about himself, he says, I'm afraid if I say something extra, they'll drag me in. And I'll have to, you know, be be forced to do whatever they want me to do. So I don't want to subject myself to that test. I don't mind why am I said make myself as he said, a toy in the hands of children, that they will do whatever they want.

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

So it says there is a story in that in the text that says someone came to him and he says, What do you say about? He says?

00:36:40--> 00:37:21

He says, Yes, this is what you mentioned this, he says, because I don't want the political authority to take note of this, and drag me and forced me to sing this one that once he said this, you know, a messenger from you know, the prevention leader comes in, he says, Why are you saying this? And before he didn't say anything about it, and now you're talking about it, why? So it was an interesting turn that says, See what I told you, once they start talking about it, they will, you know, take me in. So his friend said, Okay, I'll volunteer on your behalf, and go and argue, on your behalf. He did that. So one of the reasons is that he did not want to be entangled as this is one.

00:37:22--> 00:37:27

A second is that this was in fact, the advice or let's say the example of a chef,

00:37:29--> 00:37:30

a chef, I gave him an advice

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

to

00:37:33--> 00:37:34

focus on.

00:37:35--> 00:37:40

And he hated these theological decisions, especially

00:37:42--> 00:37:47

anyone can, is to speak, originates really, it's a hybrid from philosophy.

00:37:48--> 00:37:58

And it's speaking about a loss of data based on your intellect alone. So you affirm what your intellect affirms and you deny what your intellect denies. And the Quran and Sunnah are secondary.

00:38:00--> 00:38:01

What do they

00:38:03--> 00:38:32

and we have Muslims, I mean, they did not really necessarily read philosophy or necessarily study with the martyrs either. But again, they will tell you what agrees with here goes, and what disagrees, doesn't go. So they will accept from the forum and formats interpretation agrees with their mind, they'll accept from the center agrees with their mind, and they will reject everything else. So these are today are sort of like a new or New Zealand's in New Zealand.

00:38:33--> 00:38:34

And

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

so Sheffield and focus on

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

and don't focus on these theological disputes.

00:38:42--> 00:38:58

Why does he tell him that one of those days and there's wisdom in the story, one of those days, illusory comes to a chef? And he said, I have I've listened to some arguments from atheists. Although some atheists then

00:38:59--> 00:39:04

I listen to some arguments from atheists and my Eman. She doesn't know what the answer to this.

00:39:05--> 00:39:12

So he says, He says, You are like, you know, you're like, what did he say he's, you're like a, an island in the middle of the ocean.

00:39:14--> 00:39:24

I mean, it was come and listen. And he presented him with the proofs to confirm this belief again. And after he removed all that from him, he said, there are nuclear.

00:39:28--> 00:39:47

He says that a person would come in every vice. It's better than he actually be involved in a we cannot know that science. theology, speaking about a loss of data without knowledge. Why? Because when you commit any otherwise you still harm right.

00:39:48--> 00:39:49

But what you still missed,

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

but when you in fact become entangled in that type of theological thinking that opposes the Quran and Sunnah with your own mind. You can leave Islam

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

You can leave.

00:40:02--> 00:40:15

So loose and he left, right. That's why most of the things they said, you know, I'm just gonna focus on, I have the right belief, but I'm not going to be part of their arguments and disputations restrict myself to this.

00:40:17--> 00:40:35

So again, it tells you really that if you do not strong in your data, you Be strong. And you understand, otherwise, you could lose your faith. And it doesn't mean some kind of law that you know, you have some knowledge about it, that you're safe. No, you have to keep learning and practicing and adhering to what you know. So the last panel

00:40:36--> 00:40:52

will save you. So that's why he focused on it. And that was the advice of a sharpie for him. But eventually, he had to actually reveal what he believes, because people were talking. And the third reason why people accused him by the way, yes, the third reason is jealousy.

00:40:54--> 00:40:56

Jealousy. He's a prominent,

00:40:59--> 00:41:01

and there's jealousy between Obama or not.

00:41:02--> 00:41:05

Yeah, there's jealousy, or Adam is not an angel.

00:41:06--> 00:41:17

And is not an angel. Although I know, we look at an alum and we respect them and all of this. But they see that as they say that if you hear some of your peers and contemporaries, and they're fighting with each other,

00:41:18--> 00:41:48

or accusing each other with things, and you know that this thing is not true, you say how could they say these things? You have to attribute that to what is jealousy? Sometimes? or anger? How dare he say that about me? I'm saying that about him and just human nature. So if you excuse the outcome, you don't disqualify him from being on him. Because he said these things, excuse me, because he's human, after all, all of a sudden human. And as you'd like, a person to excuse me, if you do something wrong, you do that.

00:41:50--> 00:42:03

And you don't go disqualify him from being a person who knows. But at the same time, you don't follow him in these statements. Right, so he's accusing this other animal, this atom is accusing that other atom, you know, there's no validity.

00:42:04--> 00:42:15

There's no validity to that argument to the accusation, you say, this is what, you know, maybe jealousy or maybe anger is maybe a misunderstanding, you leave that and you don't report it.

00:42:16--> 00:42:22

You don't take sides. You're listening to me. You don't take sides, it will become part of

00:42:23--> 00:42:24

combat.

00:42:25--> 00:42:44

Okay, you leave it you leave all of that? Because why? Because there is some mis misunderstanding or don't enhance that misunderstanding, don't make it a misunderstanding between groups and people, rather than a misunderstanding between two individuals. So it was a you know, there were people jealous of him, Rahim Allah, so they also spread that belief.

00:42:46--> 00:42:49

Now, the beauty of this

00:42:51--> 00:42:52

query, is that it's

00:42:53--> 00:43:06

essentially the creed coming from a student of a chef. Now, we can confidently say that this also is the belief of a sharpie, as I said, Why am I saying this? First of all, because I'm Muslim as a student,

00:43:07--> 00:43:09

and one of his closest students.

00:43:10--> 00:43:20

And no one came out to dispute or reject or argue against what he has written, claiming that it's not the belief of a sharpie. And more than that, when you compare these statements,

00:43:23--> 00:43:33

to the reported creed, coming from a sharpie, and some other books, you'll find that there's conformity and harmony between them, that whatever he was saying is, indeed, what he's saying.

00:43:36--> 00:43:50

is critical, is what a chef Avraham, Allah was critical of. So you really basically are reading that kind of a chef he come from was one of his students. And the beauty of reading earlier works

00:43:51--> 00:43:57

is that they are easy and uncomplicated. And they follow mostly

00:43:58--> 00:43:59

the wording of the Quran and Sunnah.

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

As you move further away from the term of the prophets, a lot of the books have become complicated. And what all what else,

00:44:11--> 00:44:16

they add statements that you do not find them in the font of some of so now we'll see why

00:44:17--> 00:44:28

out of necessity sometimes, or you know, without a reason. But when you go to the earliest books of al Qaeda, they are pure and easy to understand and easy to remember and there is.

00:44:30--> 00:44:34

So the earlier that you go, the better it is in sha Allah and less polluted.

00:44:36--> 00:44:39

So inshallah, let me see if we can

00:44:40--> 00:44:46

just start a little bit of it, and shall not do a lot, we'll just talk a little bit of it, so we don't take a lot of your time.

00:44:47--> 00:44:53

So, on page 75, this is from the Arabic text, but you're not gonna you're not gonna have the chain.

00:44:54--> 00:44:59

I just want to point your attention that there is a chain that actually this text starts with a chain

00:45:01--> 00:45:03

interactions with Dina is useful.

00:45:04--> 00:45:10

Carrie Fisher so far, so it says, so on so seven, so the son of the son of so and so

00:45:11--> 00:45:29

at that particular date told us from so on, so son of so and so on that particular day told us, so there's a change to this data. And most of the people in that chain are well known and recognized, and actually our scholars that a couple of them that are not known, but most of them have the lovely are well known.

00:45:30--> 00:45:40

And in addition, you have to confirm or to remove all doubts about this data, inshallah, in addition to the chain that it has, is that Lina Kamala coats that Athena

00:45:41--> 00:45:59

also cooks that feed as well in its entirety and the entirety of the hobby in certain phrases. So both of them felt comfortable that it was it was indeed the author of the cicada. So we have a chain, right? So this is something in sha Allah to know, cetera, et cetera.

00:46:00--> 00:46:10

So and So told me something told me until we reach and this is page, so we go to page 76, to page 77. So now is explaining the reason

00:46:12--> 00:46:12

he says.

00:46:14--> 00:46:22

He says, I was in Tripoli, so people were sitting gathering in Tripoli of the West. This is in Libya, right?

00:46:24--> 00:46:24

Okay.

00:46:25--> 00:46:35

So he says to Anna was hobbling us sooner. So we were talking about sooner and either right belief, right. And in another

00:46:37--> 00:46:38

narration of it, it says

00:46:42--> 00:46:47

a group of scholars upon the sooner so you were mentioning that, like Malik and Shaggy.

00:46:49--> 00:46:51

Last for hand was talking about Huawei.

00:46:53--> 00:47:03

So we're talking about for the scholars, this person, this person, this person, that people that I mean, people that you can trust, the people that follow the Sunnah. And we mentioned

00:47:07--> 00:47:09

a person objected and says

00:47:10--> 00:47:16

he's not an all of them, reliable, trustworthy, praiseworthy, a loser is not.

00:47:18--> 00:47:27

We asked him why is that the case? He says, because I've heard him speak and speak about meaning erroneously, about the other was destiny, where you

00:47:29--> 00:47:42

either he's arguing by according to intellect, in opposition to the audience to phenomena that he can the smart one, so we were distressed to hear that. In the first narration, he says,

00:47:47--> 00:47:55

He says, I've heard that he speaks or as mentioned things about the Koran and doesn't affirm the right belief there

00:47:57--> 00:48:06

says the wrong belief. So either he does not affirm the right belief about the Koran, or says the wrong belief. I'll explain that later. Jump right.

00:48:07--> 00:48:09

In Anniston, una hora

00:48:11--> 00:48:25

de de so people who are distressed, seriously distressed to hear all of this. So we wanted to write him a letter, asking him about the details of what he believes so that we will know that what the truth is, is this true or not? So what's the benefit here?

00:48:27--> 00:48:42

What's the immediate benefit? If you hear something? What should you do? clarify? And don't rush to believe, okay, now we have internet, right? And phones and everything before they didn't have any of that. But still, so we're not going to believe about this. We're going to write a letter to Egypt

00:48:43--> 00:48:50

and from Egypt is going to come back to us and only this will only then will then we will confirm whether he believes these things or not, we're not just going to assume

00:48:53--> 00:48:58

he says so he wrote to us shop hustlin wrote to us this shop.

00:49:01--> 00:49:16

It's in matters of destiny. This is related to EMA. And well that's even true about the gathering and the resurrection when I was in the scales of Nevada and in seeing a lot of panels

00:49:17--> 00:49:19

that he wrote and this is how he starts.

00:49:21--> 00:49:22

He says Bismillahirrahmanirrahim

00:49:24--> 00:49:28

inshallah, so just a little bit of heat, and then we'll stop inshallah. So he starts with

00:49:30--> 00:49:37

the habit of the scholars right to them when they start. They start with the name of our last panel what someone has said to me.

00:49:38--> 00:49:59

As the last panel data starts Bismillah R Rahman Rahim. We start with the name of Allah. So they also wanted to start to bring the Baraka and the right intention into whatever they're doing and writing. They start with the name of Allah subhana wa. Tada. So, this Milla with the name of Aleister, with the name of a lie right with the name of a line writing

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

This letter to you.

00:50:03--> 00:50:05

Then he says something a lot of what?

00:50:10--> 00:50:19

He says, may Allah protect us and you with that law. And may Allah guide us and you to be in conformity with guidance.

00:50:20--> 00:50:25

And this is eloquent from him, Rahim Allah because he begins it by making dua

00:50:26--> 00:50:31

to himself, and to those who will receive that letter. And he's asking for two things protection and gain.

00:50:33--> 00:50:42

Because anyone who has got what is going to be successful within that you need these two things at the same time, that Allah will protect you from harm, and will grant you what you want.

00:50:44--> 00:50:52

It's not complete unless you have these two things, for what just protects you from harm, you still didn't get what you want. If a lot gives you what you want, but you're not protected from

00:50:54--> 00:50:55

what you have to go away.

00:50:56--> 00:51:05

So you need these two things at the same time. So he says, may Allah protect us and you will. So we do not commit to what Allah hates. We do not believe what our lives

00:51:07--> 00:51:19

we don't do what disagrees with our last panel data. And he may he also guide us so that we would follow the truth. He says I'm about to find out any and all the halochem in as soon as the Ameren two subdivision.

00:51:21--> 00:51:26

He says, You've asked me to explain to you from the sooner what is the scenario mean?

00:51:28--> 00:51:35

The right belief. I, I was prophesied send them believed and did and commanded the right belief

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

to

00:51:37--> 00:51:40

be something that you can hold patiently to.

00:51:41--> 00:51:44

Right? Can you believe that you can hold strictly to

00:51:45--> 00:51:46

be here?

00:51:48--> 00:51:56

And you protect yourself through any suspicious stains? Any invalid things? shuba? How and why is it called?

00:51:57--> 00:52:29

Because it resembles the truth. But it's not true. It resembles a valid evidence, but it's not a valid evidence that resembles a right way of thinking. But it's not. No one is going to believe something that they know 100% is false. And if something 100% false and you believe in it. Oh, absolutely not. But you could believe in it, though. It's not true. Why? Because you think it's true. You have not yet what's wrong with it. So it's a shoe. It resembles the truth, but it's not true. So sugar

00:52:30--> 00:52:56

is whatever saying you hear and you say, could this be true? Yeah, it resembles the truth. Yeah. And you're inclined to it. But in fact, it's not. So you need more of an AMA to be able to avoid was affected by lean and the mistakes and the of the undulations of the misguided, watch the movie handle enough see what he used to be

00:52:57--> 00:53:23

able to see. And he says, then I've explained to you a clear path. Alright, let's see what I did not stop or I was not deficient. And if I disagree with the translation there, right, let me know, I am not deficient in it, or did not deprive myself on you, from giving you the full advice that I could have given myself. And you the maximum advice that I can give, you

00:53:25--> 00:53:39

know, see what the themes are giving you all the advice I can give you on myself. And I begin by phrasing a lot of diversity with the Steve The one who gives us guidance and the ability to meet the truth.

00:53:40--> 00:53:52

He begins by praising the last panel data, so after the praise of Allah, I will stop inshallah, so that the next time we'll start talking about the ascendancy of Allah. So he says, Alhamdulillah

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

Alhamdulillah Hamdulillah, the most the one who's most worthy of being remembered.

00:54:02--> 00:54:08

So he is saying that if you remember anyone, the one that you should remember, first is a loss of kindness.

00:54:10--> 00:54:50

And what I really want to talk about here is that all of that tea that we're going to study, right, all of it should have a benefit. And in fact, the practical benefit. I don't mean by practical benefit, physical benefit, necessarily, but also an emotional benefit. There always should be a fruit or a summer. Okay, I believe this. So what, how does this affect me? How does this change me? How does this add to my email? So one of the things here that we can do and inshallah learn is that the way that he started, is a way that we should be thinking about a lot of hands on what data we're learning all of this, because we love a lot. And we hear a lot and we want to remember a lot the way

00:54:50--> 00:54:59

that he wants us to remember him and believe about him what he wants us to believe about him. It's not about we're right and they're wrong. We want to fight with everybody. It's not that either

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

This is something that's bigger. It's not that it's about a loss of something. Let's believe it as a lot of ones that didn't believe. Let's believe about Allah Subhana Allah to Allah with His Majesty and Honor and power and

00:55:12--> 00:55:17

the way that his prophets in law, he was believed in them. So the first thing happened And do

00:55:19--> 00:55:46

you remember your parents, you remember your children, you remember your money, you remember everything. But the one that you should remember most is our last panel without a limit that you should praise most as our last panel data. The one that you should love most is a lot of women should fear most is our last panel. So this is a hot woman looking, right. So that's why we're doing all of this. That's why we're talking about all of this. That's why this is important. Because you're talking about a lot, who a lot is, that's why it matters.

00:55:47--> 00:55:55

That's why all of this matters. That's why the person does not believe in it at all, a lot becomes angry with him. Why? Because it matters.

00:55:56--> 00:56:01

A hot woman looking at well, lemon sugar, and the one who makes should be the first.

00:56:02--> 00:56:11

And again, we think a lot of people, okay, we feel gratitude for this person, that person but the one who deserves our most gratitude is a lot

00:56:12--> 00:56:24

more sense and praises the last panel with that. So again, your relationship with Allah should be strong. And then again, that's why you're doing what you're doing while I praise Him and why he was summoned.

00:56:26--> 00:56:27

So why he's one

00:56:29--> 00:56:31

is wide in number meaningless no other guy.

00:56:32--> 00:56:52

His work had been no other creed, or no other provided water sustained or no other guy, no other helper but him subpanel with data, and no one should be worshipped. But him and no one has attributes like him, as was, as we shall see, no one has attributes like him subpanel. So he's working.

00:56:53--> 00:56:55

And he's also a summit

00:56:56--> 00:57:05

format is the one that everyone needs, what he needs to know what everyone asks whatever they need. And He grants them.

00:57:06--> 00:57:14

The one who is high and no one is higher than he is, all of these are embedded in the meaning of a summit. So he's a white, and he's a summit.

00:57:16--> 00:57:16

listener,

00:57:17--> 00:57:25

he does not have a wife, a female companion, when I was a no progeny, no child, gender

00:57:27--> 00:57:31

is greater than having an equal

00:57:32--> 00:57:33

someone who is like him.

00:57:35--> 00:57:37

And that's significant when you think about it.

00:57:39--> 00:57:42

That is why were you thinking about our last panel data loss.

00:57:45--> 00:58:00

Whatever you imagine a loss of data to be allies, greater allies far beyond anything that we can imagine and can cannot comprehend. The mind cannot. The eyes cannot the body cannot swallow is really great. And really beyond

00:58:01--> 00:58:11

our imagination, our small, unlimited existence, and nothing that we see, including ourselves is equal to allow resembles a last panel data. So he says,

00:58:12--> 00:58:16

what are the nothing resembles him and nothing is equal to him.

00:58:17--> 00:58:54

Nothing resembles him that you see around nothing resembles him and nothing is equal to him. That's why it's a penalize surprising at times that we can put ourselves at a level close to a long question a lot of that. Why does he do this? And why doesn't he do that? Why did he create this way? And why does he ask us to do that? Why when I asked him, he did grant me what I wanted from him, but he gave it to someone else. So you put your level, you know, close to a loss of power without a sentence above them. And you say and you hear from people, if I were God, I wouldn't do this. If I was in this place, I would do it differently. So you see, the affirmation here is because there's no

00:58:54--> 00:58:55

equal to him.

00:58:56--> 00:59:10

No matter how you think, you know, no matter how you process things in your mind, Allah is far greater than whatever you're imagining. Know, your experience, your limited existence was greater than all of this. So that should be

00:59:12--> 00:59:24

a semi Obasi. Here's all and he sees all immediately notice, we don't hear all we don't see all we don't know what he does that and yet we think that we equal to him at

00:59:26--> 00:59:56

all knowing he knows everything. And he's happier he knows what is the paradox what is hidden at the same time, what is apparent and allene also unhappy. And many of these are many of the names of Allah subhana wa Taala, but we can think of them as him describing a law. So you can describe a law but you cannot say that these are names of the last panel with that unless they are in the Quran and Sunnah. So as a rule of law, I cannot for instance, come and introduce a name and say this is an intro.

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

I can't do this but if Allah

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

called himself something in the Quran was prophets of autism, I called him something and the sooner we say this is an Ebola because it's used in the revelation, but I cannot invent a name, I can describe a law, say our last panel data is this, this, this this I can describe, but I cannot conclude or derive a need from that thing. So, Allah subhanho wa Taala is many, many in the sense of being powerful, or fear that he's above right his creation, in power and in dignity and in mercy and and everything and all attributes, but then they cannot come and say as many as one of the names of Allah is one of the names of Allah. So, they says they say that

01:00:43--> 01:00:54

you can, you know, describe Allah subhanho wa Taala with many attributes as long as they are valid, but you cannot introduce a name unless that name is in the book of a loss of data or the sin of his profits.

01:00:56--> 01:01:00

So in short, I wanted to stop here. So that next time

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

we start with the ascendancy

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

and

01:01:06--> 01:01:45

what I want to say, inshallah, if you have questions, we can address them after the class wonderful, if not, find a way for that to reach me whether it's online or write your questions and leave that with me and I'll answer them next time. Your questions and comments are also important why to be able to relate whatever we're studying to whatever people believe today. So yes, I have a reference for people believed in the past and I will try to reference what some of us believe today, but some of you will have access to what I do. And you say Oh, people also believe this belief that let me know why because the only one shall enrich this inshallah lesson and make it better and better for

01:01:45--> 01:01:51

all of us so that when we learn we're not only learning about the past, but something also that we can use today.

01:01:53--> 01:01:54

So just

01:01:55--> 01:01:58

let me know if there are questions about anything that I said.

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

Or anything I did not say.

01:02:12--> 01:02:13

I posted the link to it.

01:02:14--> 01:02:19

My Facebook and if you just type it, you will get it in sha Allah

01:02:21--> 01:02:31

has that text in that it's an edited text and the good edited text and that's why you'll be able to find it and in my you find it in Charlotte starts on page 7576
