is entitled every the priorities of a Muslim to had a labor or dour. The speaker I'm sure almost all of you know already doesn't need much of an introduction Shaykh, Abu amin and Bill Phillips who's been active in Adela for well over 20 years, I don't know how much how much longer than that

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

in the gala and Sam and teaching, translating, and writing, as well as quite a number of books. And he's done a tremendous amount of work

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

in the field.

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

And we'd like to welcome today. Again, Shaykh Abu Amina

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

alameen, wa Salatu was Salam.

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

ala Tabby, woman, Western medicine economic

phrase due to Iran your life Peace and blessings, the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:01:06--> 00:01:10

and an all girls will follow the path of righteousness until the last day.

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

As my brother

00:01:16--> 00:01:20

said, the topic today is

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

on the priorities of a Muslim

00:01:26--> 00:01:28

who started was chosen?

00:01:29--> 00:01:30

Because

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

there are a number of different moods

00:01:36--> 00:01:40

calling through a variety of different priorities.

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

Everybody agrees on Islam.

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

However,

00:01:51--> 00:01:55

what should we focus on as Muslims,

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

particularly Muslims here in the West?

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

Should we be focusing on Jihad?

00:02:06--> 00:02:07

Or should it be

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

seen

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

as establishing the telephone?

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

Or should it be?

00:02:18--> 00:02:19

Or should it be on a barber?

00:02:23--> 00:02:26

These are questions which

00:02:27--> 00:02:28

many of us

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

have in questions,

00:02:32--> 00:02:35

especially because all of them

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

seem important.

00:02:39--> 00:02:43

Who can deny that you have is important?

00:02:44--> 00:02:48

Who can deny that having a challenge

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

over

00:02:52--> 00:02:55

the Muslim world is not important.

00:02:56--> 00:02:58

Who can deny that

00:02:59--> 00:03:04

calling people to Islam is not important. And who can deny that a Barbara

00:03:06--> 00:03:07

that is

00:03:08--> 00:03:09

the basic

00:03:10--> 00:03:14

acts of worship which have been identified by a prophet

00:03:15--> 00:03:19

when he told us that Islam was built on science,

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

five basic principles.

00:03:24--> 00:03:29

Those are the basic acts of a barber, everything else is a distinction from the pack.

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

So where should we as Muslims here focus, our focus because we cannot do all of them at the same time.

00:03:41--> 00:03:48

So we have to choose among them. loads which we will start with

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

having a fabulous we shift on to the next level for we have to put them in orders of fidelity in order for our Islamic activity or Sonic movement or Islamic work to be effective.

00:04:08--> 00:04:08

Now

00:04:12--> 00:04:12

as I see it,

00:04:14--> 00:04:16

for us to determine

00:04:18--> 00:04:20

where our priorities should be.

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

We have to answer

00:04:26--> 00:04:36

the most fundamental question that every human being asked himself at some point in his or her lifetime,

00:04:39--> 00:04:42

not just Muslims, but every single human being

00:04:45--> 00:04:50

asked himself or herself. Why was I created?

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

Why am I here?

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

What am I doing in this world? That is God

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

These questions

00:05:05--> 00:05:11

are questions which each and every one of us reflect on at different points in our life.

00:05:13--> 00:05:17

Not some answers, which are given generally.

00:05:18--> 00:05:23

But oftentimes these answers don't satisfy us.

00:05:24--> 00:05:29

They seem somewhat consistent. We still wonder

00:05:30--> 00:05:32

why he right here.

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

So

00:05:37--> 00:05:41

we're looking at the issue of priorities and putting things in order.

00:05:44--> 00:05:47

I intend to look into the issue of

00:05:48--> 00:05:51

why was the man created?

00:05:54--> 00:05:58

I know all of you, generally speaking, in the back of your mind, you're saying,

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

What are you getting?

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

Why do we need to have a big long topic about

00:06:07--> 00:06:10

why we were created when we are no? Good.

00:06:13--> 00:06:16

Presented two anonymously now created.

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

In the next lesson, you're active and ready to rock with authority.

00:06:23--> 00:06:24

And when you stop, when

00:06:27--> 00:06:32

it means, in your own mind, in our own minds, it's not really clear to us.

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

So

00:06:40--> 00:07:03

what I intend to do is to look into this topic, to give us some clarity, to understand our position and, and found that inshallah we can then look out to the world around us, and determine what should be our priorities, according to Islamic work.

00:07:09--> 00:07:10

question,

00:07:11--> 00:07:15

why did Allah create this? Why did

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

that was man created? For some people,

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

we have to deal with those people around us.

00:07:27--> 00:07:30

Don't consider that to be any pepper.

00:07:32--> 00:07:34

In that situation, because

00:07:35--> 00:07:37

it's just a product of

00:07:39--> 00:07:39

evolution.

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

The forces of nature have produced to

00:07:46--> 00:07:47

address that.

00:07:48--> 00:07:57

We don't have apes or dogs or cows, thinking about why they were here, why they created them, we don't have to think about it.

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

Of course,

00:08:04--> 00:08:11

not being the basis of the philosophy of Western society,

00:08:13--> 00:08:18

that man is without purpose, then the whole issue of

00:08:20--> 00:08:30

governments, morality, etc, has no basis in Revelation, there is no guidance there.

00:08:32--> 00:08:37

And the result of all that is of course, the corruption that we are living.

00:08:39--> 00:08:40

So for Muslims,

00:08:42--> 00:08:56

who say that, when we go into this topic, we have to seek understanding, some divine revelation, and not human stuff, speculation.

00:08:58--> 00:09:17

Human speculation, has no nouns, we can imagine all kinds of things and of course, any of you who have studied philosophy of religion or philosophy, and you can see how many opinions that exists about why man,

00:09:18--> 00:09:27

why existence, you know, all the variety of philosophies that are out there. Nobody can say this one or that one, which one is

00:09:28--> 00:09:30

correct, which one is incorrect?

00:09:32--> 00:09:36

Because there is no guidance behind it. No, no divine revelation.

00:09:39--> 00:09:53

And it is only from divine revelation, that we can determine the reality of our creation. Because it is Allah who has created us

00:09:54--> 00:09:57

and he knows the purpose of our creation.

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

We get it

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

understand ourselves, much less trying to understand the essence of things. Why are

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

we revelation

00:10:16--> 00:10:19

and the Quran, and through the center,

00:10:21--> 00:10:27

which was brought by Islamic messenger, as well as messengers before.

00:10:29--> 00:10:31

Now, if we are to look

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

initially

00:10:35--> 00:10:36

into revelation

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

to determine

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

was man created?

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

There is

00:10:47--> 00:10:50

an even deeper question that we should ask before that.

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

Why did God?

00:10:58--> 00:11:03

This is an even deeper question, before we even get to that, why did God

00:11:04--> 00:11:07

because man is not the greatest

00:11:10--> 00:11:15

act of creation, that we should be so focused on why men

00:11:18--> 00:11:20

because Allah subhanaw taala says,

00:11:21--> 00:11:23

and so on rocker,

00:11:24--> 00:11:29

those 57 now focus on my wife, out of the bedroom, and

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

when I can accept a nap Murphy's Law,

00:11:34--> 00:11:46

indeed, the creation of the heavens, and the earth is greater than the creation of mankind. But most of mankind realizes,

00:11:51--> 00:11:57

that is not the greatest act of creation, this universe is far more complex,

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

magnificent than

00:12:06--> 00:12:06

So,

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

the issue of creation

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

should then go to why create, as opposed to simply why create not why create man and the universe and everything else. Like,

00:12:28--> 00:12:30

fundamentally, we can say

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

that the creation

00:12:35--> 00:12:40

is the natural consequence of the attributes of creator,

00:12:42--> 00:12:46

the creator, that is one of those attributes that's already been formed.

00:12:47--> 00:12:51

That being is attributes which relate to

00:12:52--> 00:12:57

the natural consequence, the product of that attribute is inspiration.

00:13:04--> 00:13:06

If you have to look at solidity

00:13:08--> 00:13:09

on a lower level,

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

it tells you, I'm a painter.

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

And you asked him well while you're painting, so I don't have any.

00:13:25--> 00:13:40

The concept of a painter who doesn't think of it as some kind of something that gelling together here of course, beyond this, that we can understand, even on the simplest level, that the two goes together.

00:13:41--> 00:13:50

The perception of a painter lies in his painting, his qualities ability to paint is manifest in his paintings,

00:13:51--> 00:13:53

and allow beyond that,

00:13:55--> 00:14:00

as creator reveals, this quality of creation

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

is manifest in the creation itself.

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

Out of the need,

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

to need

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

to create, so, he created

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

the fact that He is the Creator

00:14:24--> 00:14:27

is manifest in the creation.

00:14:33--> 00:14:36

There we consider the act of creation

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

with regards to Allah is unique,

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

knowing

00:14:44--> 00:14:53

so and so created a painting or he created a car or created different things in this world, human beings create things.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

Use this terminology. Actually, that is in a limited sense

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

Human beings really don't create

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

magnets.

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

Because they can only

00:15:12--> 00:15:15

create what already exists.

00:15:16--> 00:15:19

they manipulate when we make a chair or a table,

00:15:20--> 00:15:33

we create this table, we didn't create the work, we have to take it from a tree, we didn't create the metal makes the schools and now we have to knock down stones and take the metal out and form it.

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

So, we are not creating from nothing

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

more manipulating what Allah has already created into the friendship and

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

we call it a creation.

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

But the real act of creation,

00:15:49--> 00:15:54

that is creation from nothing is unique to Allah alone.

00:15:58--> 00:16:02

This is a concept, which many people

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

in ignorance

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

because they couldn't grasp the idea of creation from nothingness does not want to conclude that the world is

00:16:22--> 00:16:25

to say, inside of each and every atom is

00:16:26--> 00:16:28

not people who call themselves Muslims,

00:16:30--> 00:16:32

non Muslims, I've said it before.

00:16:33--> 00:16:34

And we have this,

00:16:35--> 00:16:40

who claimed that Allah inside each and everything,

00:16:41--> 00:16:46

because I live in reality, everything is sick. This is the interpretation.

00:16:48--> 00:16:53

That means then, that the creation is alive, and allow the creation

00:16:56--> 00:17:01

of a dangerous concept to get met. Even some of those who make this claim to say you don't have to.

00:17:02--> 00:17:04

You don't have to worship anyone outside of yourself

00:17:07--> 00:17:14

is famous for the statement, he's considered one of the things amongst the so called Sufi religion.

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

He said,

00:17:19--> 00:17:22

No need to learn outside yourself.

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

Sufficient the recipe.

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

So this is

00:17:33--> 00:17:44

this concept of allow being within this creation, a distinction between allowing the creator it needs to shift because they are unable to accept

00:17:45--> 00:18:00

the uniqueness of allows creation will compare the act of creation of Allah to human creation. That is, just as we manipulate Allah to pieces of himself and made the earth and the universe.

00:18:03--> 00:18:05

Honors will say that

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

all human beings have inside of themselves a lot. You know, there's a type of Allah which is inside each and every one of you. And the essence the purpose of life

00:18:21--> 00:18:35

is then for us to realize that we have a lie inside of ourselves. Remove the material blocks that blocks us from the law, and again become one with a law in what they call find out.

00:18:37--> 00:18:39

Sufi religion teaches

00:18:41--> 00:18:45

becoming run with a law returning back to Allah in this sense.

00:18:49--> 00:18:49

That

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

is part of the teachings of

00:18:54--> 00:18:56

deluded man into the

00:18:57--> 00:19:33

imagination. As part of the belief of the Hindus, that probably Nirvana, the concept when you die, you're reborn again. When you die, you're reborn and you move up in stages. If you're a good boy or good girl, each time you're reborn, you grew up higher and higher, today reach the top, you know you reach the peak. When you die the next time you become one with universal soul, Nirvana, that's the end of rebirth. So your whole purpose to existence is to return and become one with God again.

00:19:34--> 00:19:35

This is all

00:19:36--> 00:19:50

a product of an inability to understand the concept of creation from nothingness which is unique to Allah. Allah says low frequency

00:19:53--> 00:19:58

There is nothing like him and he is the zero and zero law

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

So, when we try to interpret the last creation, like the way we create, when we have made him like his creation, and it leads us ultimately into the aquifer ship that I mentioned to you, which is quite common in the Muslim world,

00:20:18--> 00:20:22

because when you look into the various branches of the Sufi religion

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

describe

00:20:25--> 00:20:47

various acts of, of purification, you know, they call it, you know exercises where you torture the body, you spin in your dance, you jump in the air, and you rock and roll and all kind of stuff, you know, what is the purpose of the car, they were telling you, you know, to liberate the soul from the earthly body.

00:20:48--> 00:20:50

And to achieve that state, you know,

00:20:53--> 00:20:54

it means that they upward.

00:20:56--> 00:21:19

This concept was not allowed, you know, many centuries ago, when he was promoting this idea, and he was put before a panel of judges, assuming this concept that he was expecting, and they asked him to return to get the stuff back to some kind of ship, he stood up and opened up his cloak and said, there's nothing inside this talk except Allah.

00:21:25--> 00:21:33

And, of course, you know, Logan, the Sufi religion, they are stories about the cookie cutter was rolling into a thing of na, na.

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

But

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

of course, it might have

00:21:38--> 00:21:39

been

00:21:44--> 00:21:44

double

00:21:46--> 00:21:57

the gin may have answered. And so the things that the the calf of the Israelites were uncovered in

00:21:58--> 00:22:11

Egypt, and the people after crossing the Red Sea, you know, they have this desire to have a God that they could see. So they made a golden cup for shipping. That was good and capital thing.

00:22:19--> 00:22:20

This is what convinced them?

00:22:24--> 00:22:25

Well, we know that

00:22:28--> 00:22:40

the Eagles can enter into physical entities and make sounds and give these impressions. So it's no problem for us to filter Yes, maybe to cycle Yes, when the cut of

00:22:43--> 00:22:45

a loved one. Honestly,

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

this is bad.

00:22:52--> 00:22:59

If we're clear, we're clear in terms of creator and creation, which is no problem

00:23:01--> 00:23:02

is the creator

00:23:03--> 00:23:06

of everything besides Him,

00:23:09--> 00:23:13

which he created from nothing. But he's not him.

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

up more conference, as taught by the prime, and by Prophet Mohammed,

00:23:25--> 00:23:46

and his companions, early generation, a righteous scholars among the students of the companions and those who came after the death of generation, that's how do I understood this matter? There was no confusion in your mind. It wasn't until Islam spread into areas like Egypt and

00:23:48--> 00:23:48

Persia.

00:23:50--> 00:24:12

These areas where the Christians have already gotten into deep philosophy is trying to explain how Jesus was a man. And he was God. At the same time our God became man and man with God and you know, all their various arguments that they had the different branches and substance, you know, they've gotten into deep philosophy to explain how it could be and could not be and win the tournament was

00:24:16--> 00:24:22

not something we should, you know, necessarily condemn them for. He was

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

unusual, no, it was not sure when a person convert to Islam, the donor carry with them, preferably means before forever. Try to fight for them, or the basic principles. They will accept and reject the things which are greatly contradicted. But it doesn't mean for every last fact that they have everything which is wrong in their concepts, and their philosophy and your ideology has now been No, no.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

This is why in the latter years of apartments as well as life sciences,

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

When he was coming back from from the battle, and his companions,

00:25:08--> 00:25:11

asked him to set aside a tree

00:25:13--> 00:25:16

for them, that they could hang their weapons on.

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

That the way he

00:25:20--> 00:25:36

begun to have these trees that they own weapons on you leaving the window on the weapon on the tree, he now became super powerful, and power was coming from the tree into those weapons and other shields with no black steel in there, the swords with the Yemenis have

00:25:38--> 00:25:39

taken

00:25:40--> 00:25:41

some of the companions when

00:25:43--> 00:25:47

they asked them to designate one for the official one and Islamic right.

00:25:48--> 00:25:51

They want one like what they understood that you know what the pilgrims

00:25:54--> 00:25:57

were asked in the process, notes without any slanted tree that they could handle

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

is a companion to the pocket.

00:26:03--> 00:26:06

And he has to clarify for them. I like to combine

00:26:11--> 00:26:12

them, but

00:26:13--> 00:26:29

there's no case for it. And it's not. So if it could happen to some of the companions, then blame those people or the generations that come after them, when they come into Islam, and they try some of these wrong ideas. What it is for us to do is to clarify.

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

So

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

what you have in front of us then

00:26:38--> 00:26:39

is that

00:26:40--> 00:26:43

Allah created this universe,

00:26:44--> 00:26:45

out of nothing.

00:26:47--> 00:26:49

And everything that is

00:26:51--> 00:26:53

as you said, for example,

00:26:54--> 00:26:57

Chapter 62. And now

00:27:02--> 00:27:04

Allah created all things.

00:27:05--> 00:27:08

And we have the agents on which are things depends.

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

The law,

00:27:11--> 00:27:12

the law,

00:27:14--> 00:27:17

and the law created you and whatever you do

00:27:24--> 00:27:25

to us,

00:27:26--> 00:27:31

in order for us to realize that ultimately, our groups

00:27:32--> 00:27:33

out

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

in the world,

00:27:37--> 00:27:41

it's only testing neither permission or law.

00:27:44--> 00:27:53

Therefore we should not see any other channels to protect ourselves from evil to gather for ourselves.

00:27:56--> 00:28:01

As people commonly do today, they will go to fortune tellers. Today

00:28:02--> 00:28:15

of magazines are fetching colors, the various shapes and forms a call up dialer, dialer, horoscope, you know, dial a fortune, will tell you what to do tomorrow and also avoid the evil and get out of

00:28:17--> 00:28:32

business in a society that has lost touch with Allah, that's what's open to them. Anything that you've convinced them The purpose is to have some power here, you seem to be able to tell us something of the future, because they've built a reputation for themselves.

00:28:34--> 00:28:35

So,

00:28:38--> 00:28:39

try to get some good price.

00:28:41--> 00:28:44

However, and I stress

00:28:46--> 00:28:49

that no calamity strikes except by Allah permission,

00:28:51--> 00:28:52

you will see that

00:28:55--> 00:28:58

nothing is taking place in this world except by the permission of Allah.

00:29:01--> 00:29:12

And the path numbers are sanlam further emphasize this principle by saying that we should do work that has been one of mankind's efforts

00:29:13--> 00:29:20

to do something to help us they could not help us with anything which allow have not already written for

00:29:22--> 00:29:24

the whole of mankind gathered together

00:29:26--> 00:29:27

they could not

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

do anything that Allah had not already written for us.

00:29:34--> 00:29:35

Yeah for

00:29:37--> 00:29:40

that is required of that is to be turned

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

in and

00:29:46--> 00:29:59

this is all that we have to draw out of this attribute of a lot being the creator of this creation and because of that attributes, its practical significance to us live

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

In.

00:30:04--> 00:30:07

Now, there is another aspect

00:30:08--> 00:30:12

besides the fact that creation exists because Allah is the Creator,

00:30:13--> 00:30:17

we can also see so much that was that someone has informed us

00:30:20--> 00:30:21

in the creation,

00:30:24--> 00:30:26

manifestation

00:30:27--> 00:30:31

of a lot of attributes of mercy,

00:30:32--> 00:30:33

forgiveness,

00:30:34--> 00:30:38

kindness, etc, et cetera.

00:30:41--> 00:30:45

Allah created man in Paradise, men and women in paradise

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

disobeyed Allah.

00:30:50--> 00:30:51

them how to

00:30:53--> 00:31:00

how to turn back to him and his forgiveness and when he would forgive them.

00:31:06--> 00:31:09

Having done that, they were forgiven.

00:31:10--> 00:31:13

Adam became the first Prophet and the law

00:31:14--> 00:31:16

and mankind was observed.

00:31:18--> 00:31:21

The story of Adam and Eve is

00:31:22--> 00:31:25

a summary of human existence.

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

Human beings,

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

a consciousness of God. When Allah created human beings as distinct from the Quran, he took some Adam descendant and made them all deal with federal law.

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

So we

00:31:49--> 00:31:54

were not conscious, he has also given us a consciousness of right and wrong.

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

He has inspired each and every soul

00:32:01--> 00:32:04

through an awareness of corruption

00:32:06--> 00:32:07

and logic,

00:32:09--> 00:32:27

and Western prophets to guide them, Revelation revealed to Adam and he to His commandments, commanding them not to equal to true revelation of God. However, human beings

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

when they fall into sin,

00:32:38--> 00:32:42

we can absolve us of the lesson by means of repentance.

00:32:44--> 00:32:46

And Allah forgive.

00:32:47--> 00:32:52

When we repent, sincerely, repent once I found themselves, you're one who

00:32:54--> 00:32:56

is not the one without sin.

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

This is the message.

00:33:06--> 00:33:08

Seven the hobbies collected inside Islam.

00:33:10--> 00:33:18

If you did not commit sin, and turn to Allah seeking His forgiveness, he would have replaced you with another people

00:33:20--> 00:33:23

after last forgiveness, and he will forgive them.

00:33:28--> 00:33:35

And as colossal goodness, have replaced us for people who are feminazis to goodness me with forgiveness.

00:33:37--> 00:33:44

ocular last forgiveness through attributes of mercy and forgiveness become manifest

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

allow you to do before he

00:33:48--> 00:33:50

knew that he was creating

00:33:51--> 00:33:53

a species.

00:33:55--> 00:33:57

He didn't want them to sin.

00:34:01--> 00:34:05

desire to permit them to sin that he could have created Angel.

00:34:06--> 00:34:07

Angel

00:34:08--> 00:34:09

already created

00:34:10--> 00:34:14

a manifestation of his creation of being the creative

00:34:17--> 00:34:18

aspect of the universe.

00:34:20--> 00:34:22

So he chose to create the being

00:34:27--> 00:34:31

commandments through forgetfulness or sinful disobedience.

00:34:32--> 00:34:33

Let's

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

return back to repentance, an attribute of forgiveness to become manifest in one

00:34:44--> 00:34:47

similarly, says mercy.

00:34:48--> 00:34:49

Allah

00:34:53--> 00:34:56

the spoken word ally created the universe

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

to load an obligation on himself.

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

Recorded in a document checked by him, My Mercy precedes my raw

00:35:12--> 00:35:14

author was appointed a

00:35:15--> 00:35:17

fellow created mostly with 100.

00:35:20--> 00:35:23

Runner routes were bound to found the gym, and human beings

00:35:25--> 00:35:26

and other living beings.

00:35:27--> 00:35:44

Out of this one partner, they love each other, show kindness to each other. And even the animals cheap their offspring with affection allow has reserved the remaining 99 parts, for his true worshipers on the Day of Judgment.

00:35:47--> 00:35:52

the mercy of Allah manifests in his creation.

00:35:55--> 00:35:59

That is all for manifests in creation, and lots of creation,

00:36:01--> 00:36:02

the creation of man

00:36:05--> 00:36:07

just attributes of justice,

00:36:13--> 00:36:16

which comes out of the judgment at the end of this year.

00:36:18--> 00:36:20

I'm sure we will have

00:36:23--> 00:36:25

a lot created some people for now.

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

And some people for

00:36:30--> 00:36:32

me for a lot of something very heavy.

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

And so the companions, they asked,

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

then what's the point of doing

00:36:40--> 00:36:41

some sermon in

00:36:44--> 00:36:46

the conference room anything for me to decide

00:36:48--> 00:36:49

in the process, and I'm sure

00:36:53--> 00:36:55

each one of you

00:36:57--> 00:37:01

find it easy to do whatever he was created for.

00:37:05--> 00:37:10

So if you choose to giveaway,

00:37:12--> 00:37:17

find it easy and carry on in that way. Or then that's what you

00:37:20--> 00:37:23

know, ultimately, it is your choice.

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

Choose

00:37:29--> 00:37:42

the fact that allows recordings before anything was created, and will be in hell and will be in heaven. This does not change the fact that it is we choose.

00:37:45--> 00:37:47

Judgment is early.

00:37:48--> 00:37:49

Remember,

00:37:50--> 00:37:55

to those who are going to hell, that they deserve to be in hell.

00:38:01--> 00:38:07

Because if Allah created you, and put you in Paradise, right?

00:38:10--> 00:38:12

And you see that people inherit suffering

00:38:13--> 00:38:14

as they are.

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

Are you ready to ask the left revenue company and

00:38:26--> 00:38:28

you don't want to question anything,

00:38:29--> 00:38:34

you will be accepted that you are in paradise.

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

So the judgment

00:38:39--> 00:38:40

is not for you.

00:38:41--> 00:38:45

Ultimately, ultimately, you're going to help

00:38:46--> 00:38:52

because if you happen to be amongst those who are creating and putting out you would be the one saying

00:38:54--> 00:38:56

why don't you put me on hold.

00:38:58--> 00:38:59

And I would say

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

because you would have done

00:39:06--> 00:39:07

you get a chance

00:39:09--> 00:39:12

to do the good things and do better, you would argue

00:39:14--> 00:39:15

do not give up.

00:39:18--> 00:39:22

So I'm not allowed to live out our life.

00:39:24--> 00:39:30

So when we stand before him, and I broke up via a script before

00:39:33--> 00:39:37

without a shadow of a doubt, that we

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

that allows judgment is just there is no injustice image in any way, shape, or form are going to proceed.

00:39:52--> 00:39:54

We go No need to

00:40:02--> 00:40:03

The only thing

00:40:04--> 00:40:06

that remains for us

00:40:07--> 00:40:09

and I pray that in fact it is not

00:40:11--> 00:40:12

going to have

00:40:14--> 00:40:16

to bother law for another chapter.

00:40:19--> 00:40:20

No, it is deserves it.

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

On that day,

00:40:24--> 00:40:30

did you see if you could only see the time when the sinners will bow their heads before their life.

00:40:32--> 00:40:36

They know that a lot of judgment is just that they deserve our without a doubt.

00:40:41--> 00:40:43

We have now seen and heard.

00:40:44--> 00:40:45

So send us back.

00:40:50--> 00:40:52

We now believe with certainty,

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

only response that will be left for them.

00:41:04--> 00:41:07

In chapter 23, verse one or 228,

00:41:08--> 00:41:08

and the

00:41:10--> 00:41:12

lights go on.

00:41:14--> 00:41:24

I wrote to a rubenfeld and ODM how eternally the fire will burn their faces. And they will bring disfigured lips,

00:41:26--> 00:41:27

I will filter them

00:41:29--> 00:41:40

out versus not insipid to you, and you delight them, they will be proud of our Lord, our movie overcomers. And we will have people as soon

00:41:44--> 00:41:48

as we ever return to evil, we will truly be unjust.

00:41:51--> 00:41:55

That's all we can do is beg for another

00:41:57--> 00:42:06

opportunity. However, as I said, when we die, they remain behind a barrier.

00:42:08--> 00:42:13

None of us will come back. It is a one way ticket.

00:42:15--> 00:42:35

For individuals who think you have another chance, you know, this is the new age religion. They think it's new, but it's just plain old Hindu delusion. It's when you die, you got another chance to come back again. You know, and the affection group actually, among Hindus who live in

00:42:36--> 00:42:43

the UAE there are lot of Hindus working there. And every day the newspaper read about

00:42:44--> 00:42:45

a man or woman

00:42:47--> 00:42:56

tie a rope to the ceiling fan, which is found in many of the homes there, around the neck, took away the chair. And

00:42:57--> 00:42:58

I thought it was low

00:42:59--> 00:43:02

suicides common amongst them. Because they

00:43:04--> 00:43:07

got to rep not to do that anymore. Let me try in the next life.

00:43:14--> 00:43:15

It will be a rude awakening

00:43:19--> 00:43:25

the angel of death. And they find themselves in the next level, realizing that there is no coming back.

00:43:31--> 00:43:33

And then the creation of men

00:43:34--> 00:43:37

is manifest the grace

00:43:39--> 00:43:48

This is a particular point which all of us should reflect on and be thankful to Allah for his grace.

00:43:49--> 00:43:53

And Christians oftentimes they like to refer to as

00:43:55--> 00:43:57

rosy who don't believe in the grace of God.

00:43:59--> 00:44:09

You know, we are those who look at God as you know, judging except about deeds you do actually needs to go to Paradise to do evil deeds, you

00:44:11--> 00:44:12

know, great

00:44:13--> 00:44:16

them the grace of God.

00:44:19--> 00:44:23

For those who accept that he became a man

00:44:25--> 00:44:28

and was crucified by men,

00:44:31--> 00:44:37

too, to provide salvation for human beings, through films have become so good

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

that they could not remove that sin through any acts of themselves.

00:44:45--> 00:44:48

So it was only with the streaming

00:44:49--> 00:44:50

blood God.

00:44:53--> 00:44:55

We could be absolved of our sins.

00:44:57--> 00:44:58

If you accept

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

that God

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

Still

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

stuck.

00:45:06--> 00:45:11

mankind's salvation, when you have earned the grace of God,

00:45:13--> 00:45:23

no matter what you do, no dude you do is gonna hurt you. As long as you're accept this belief, you have the grace of God. And this is why,

00:45:25--> 00:45:29

you know, they will come at you that certain about paradise

00:45:33--> 00:45:34

for believing God

00:45:36--> 00:45:40

actually plays a major significant role.

00:45:47--> 00:45:55

And it's important for us to realize how the grace of God manifests in our creation.

00:45:59--> 00:46:01

Republic said,

00:46:03--> 00:46:04

moderation.

00:46:08--> 00:46:11

Try to do as much as you can,

00:46:12--> 00:46:13

and be happy.

00:46:17--> 00:46:19

About only because of his

00:46:27--> 00:46:28

mother.

00:46:30--> 00:46:32

And when you've done as much as you can be happy

00:46:35--> 00:46:36

that

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

he grateful for that, because none of us will enter Paradise, merely on the basis of our deeds.

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

course when the companions heard that,

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

or messenger,

00:46:55--> 00:46:56

not even you

00:46:58--> 00:47:01

and the customer was our friend and not even

00:47:04--> 00:47:06

not for Allah

00:47:08--> 00:47:13

that allow me in his mercy, and His grace.

00:47:17--> 00:47:19

Even the Prophet Muhammad

00:47:20--> 00:47:22

would not have entered

00:47:24--> 00:47:27

it not for the mercy and grace of Allah.

00:47:33--> 00:47:34

And we completed

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

so

00:47:38--> 00:47:45

that would be most loved by Allah. There's one done constantly, even though it is smart

00:47:53--> 00:47:59

means that God's grace is manifest in our lives.

00:48:03--> 00:48:05

to hold us to account

00:48:07--> 00:48:08

one good deeds,

00:48:10--> 00:48:17

one, he will be equal to each other. We would not enter Paradise, no,

00:48:18--> 00:48:20

not even the Prophet of Allah.

00:48:26--> 00:48:28

Allah who his grace and mercy

00:48:29--> 00:48:34

multiplied the value of the good deeds. Allah says in the sixth,

00:48:36--> 00:48:38

verse 160,

00:48:40--> 00:48:42

when a good deeds

00:48:43--> 00:48:45

shall have the value of 10 like it,

00:48:46--> 00:48:54

and whoever brings an evil deeds will only be punished with one like it and they will not be round.

00:48:58--> 00:48:59

This has allowed great

00:49:02--> 00:49:04

big data that

00:49:05--> 00:49:07

you add would be erased, even

00:49:08--> 00:49:12

one good deed will erase at least it will be

00:49:13--> 00:49:14

there, this is the great

00:49:16--> 00:49:19

I love learning is not arbitrary.

00:49:20--> 00:49:23

Simply because you say I believe you have

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

to do

00:49:27--> 00:49:32

the more good you do. The more of his grace is manifesting you

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

would you do

00:49:36--> 00:49:45

with manifesting you. If you choose evil and reject the grid, then you don't receive it? No matter what you say. You say I'm a Muslim.

00:49:47--> 00:49:50

I believe that you really don't believe

00:49:51--> 00:49:52

you're saying

00:49:54--> 00:49:57

you will not be subject to the grace of Allah.

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

Creation

00:50:08--> 00:50:13

is a manifestation of a large attribute of being the Creator.

00:50:15--> 00:50:18

And the creation of man within the scheme of things.

00:50:20--> 00:50:23

manifest a lot of attributes of mercy

00:50:24--> 00:50:27

is attributes of justice and growth.

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

And

00:50:32--> 00:50:39

the reason for the creation of man, from the point of view of a

00:50:43--> 00:50:44

human perspective,

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

from human perspective,

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

what is the purpose of man's creation? Why did God create man in terms of select peppers,

00:51:01--> 00:51:02

relative to men.

00:51:04--> 00:51:08

And this is the one that we are familiar with in Surah

00:51:10--> 00:51:18

chapter 51, verses six from our collections in the insert into the abdomen,

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

I've created the jinn and mankind only for my worship.

00:51:28--> 00:51:29

So relative to Allah

00:51:32--> 00:51:33

created

00:51:40--> 00:51:45

a new or a way in which God has chosen

00:51:47--> 00:52:00

to manifest those attributes of creation, mercy, Grace, etc, etc. And he could have chosen another one, he could have chosen another creation, but this is the one he chose

00:52:02--> 00:52:04

to act as human beings.

00:52:06--> 00:52:07

We

00:52:09--> 00:52:13

know that our purpose is to worship Allah.

00:52:19--> 00:52:21

Allah doesn't need our worship,

00:52:25--> 00:52:36

need to create, he doesn't need our worship, when He created us to worship. They didn't create out of the need for our worship, because the Lord has no need.

00:52:38--> 00:52:39

filaments, hobbies

00:52:41--> 00:52:42

How do you put

00:52:46--> 00:52:47

a lot

00:52:51--> 00:52:53

of you, men and mankind

00:53:03--> 00:53:04

the most righteous amongst you.

00:53:08--> 00:53:10

This would not increase

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

the dominion of Allah in any way, shape, or form.

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

Mankind

00:53:23--> 00:53:30

rejected evil and corrupt as the most corrupt of mankind, it was not decreed

00:53:33--> 00:53:37

Dominion of Allah in any way, shape, or form.

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

Therefore, when we look for the purpose of worship, we have to look into Matt

00:53:49--> 00:53:52

a lot into that to worship Him.

00:53:54--> 00:53:57

Because we need to watch

00:53:58--> 00:54:01

this is something which he has given up

00:54:08--> 00:54:12

ourselves, we are the ones who benefit from worship.

00:54:14--> 00:54:16

Worship has been established.

00:54:17--> 00:54:18

Fundamentally

00:54:22--> 00:54:24

the spiritual growth of man

00:54:27--> 00:54:38

takes place through the remembrance of Allah. Worship is there fundamentally when you look at all of those aspects of worship, you will see the

00:54:40--> 00:54:44

focus on the remembrance of Allah.

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

Allah, music, re establish the prayer, for my remembering

00:54:56--> 00:54:59

and all of the other aspects of worship. We'll find that so

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

For the consciousness of God, there's a lot that

00:55:06--> 00:55:10

he has prescribed for fasting as we discussed before.

00:55:11--> 00:55:17

In order for us we may fear him in order that we may be conscious of

00:55:19--> 00:55:20

remember remembering

00:55:23--> 00:55:25

for us to remember,

00:55:26--> 00:55:26

and

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

to remember

00:55:30--> 00:55:33

that we achieve righteousness, because it is in

00:55:35--> 00:55:45

the law when we forget, that so fun is able to operate within us and cause us to disobey

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

Allah

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

fell into sin

00:55:52--> 00:56:02

is only in his remembrance, that we can attain salvation, salvation lies for men in the remembrance of Allah. So you see all of the

00:56:03--> 00:56:12

same Bismillah before eating, saying Bismillah before going to our wife, going into the bathroom, and all of the things

00:56:13--> 00:56:15

that we emit from the sun, that

00:56:16--> 00:56:22

is to help us to maintain the consciousness of Allah, so that we can grow spiritually.

00:56:24--> 00:56:27

Now, time is running out.

00:56:28--> 00:56:40

And I've only gotten about halfway through. So I'm gonna have to shorten things up a bit, just quickly run through some of the other aspects.

00:56:41--> 00:56:42

That is,

00:56:44--> 00:56:49

in the creation of man alpha in this world, we know a lot of said that He created us to cut

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

us to know, in the sense that he doesn't know

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

that this world is perfect for us, in order again, that we can grow spiritually, we cannot develop the spiritual qualities of generosity, unless some of us have more money than others,

00:57:18--> 00:57:23

who are required to give the wealth that we have to others, when we give we grow.

00:57:25--> 00:57:26

Similarly,

00:57:28--> 00:57:32

if we were not in a position where others have more than us,

00:57:34--> 00:57:40

we wouldn't have the ability to develop a higher spiritual quality of contentment.

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

patient

00:57:43--> 00:57:45

satisfaction, what alive given us.

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

The brothers didn't have more than us food now that struggled to develop that quality.

00:57:53--> 00:57:54

How to develop

00:57:59--> 00:58:01

in order to

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

move out of

00:58:05--> 00:58:07

the higher spiritual qualities

00:58:12--> 00:58:13

to attain

00:58:14--> 00:58:15

the state.

00:58:19--> 00:58:23

Suitable and eligible to return to paradise.

00:58:24--> 00:58:28

paradise from which we were created, were created in Paradise,

00:58:30--> 00:58:31

paradise

00:58:36--> 00:58:37

and this life

00:58:40--> 00:58:43

trusting so we can grow to

00:58:46--> 00:58:49

where we deserve paradise.

00:58:57--> 00:59:01

without proof of creation is the worship of Allah.

00:59:04--> 00:59:05

This life is

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

a test for us.

00:59:10--> 00:59:14

Really, we worship Allah, or when we forget.

00:59:17--> 00:59:22

So this is where our focus has to begin

00:59:24--> 00:59:26

when we're looking at our priorities,

00:59:29--> 00:59:33

have to focus on this has been the primary objective.

00:59:34--> 00:59:44

The objective is to turn our lives into life of worship, live of righteousness,

00:59:46--> 00:59:49

upright life, this is our primary objective.

00:59:53--> 00:59:55

So when we look at making shoes

01:00:04--> 01:00:05

Now

01:00:07--> 01:00:08

we have to

01:00:10--> 01:00:11

make sure

01:00:12--> 01:00:12

that

01:00:13--> 01:00:14

we have

01:00:15--> 01:00:16

established

01:00:18--> 01:00:23

a basic foundation of righteousness where we are worshiping Allah.

01:00:24--> 01:00:29

Before we go to things, which are beyond that,

01:00:30--> 01:00:34

before we leave this country and go somewhere else to do something,

01:00:35--> 01:00:38

are we trying to change the world, and we haven't changed our account.

01:00:40--> 01:00:42

This is a trip I've taken

01:00:44--> 01:00:54

to get us very busy and concerned about all of the politics of the Muslim world. And we should be a leader with a disbeliever, and all these things. So we can scream, and South and

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

all these things.

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

It's really easy to meet this guy.

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

But after that,

01:01:07--> 01:01:10

after we've screamed and shouted and paraded and

01:01:17--> 01:01:24

we have established a life of worship ourselves in our own locality,

01:01:25--> 01:01:29

which is not allowed to ask us about on the Day of Judgment,

01:01:34--> 01:01:35

to ask you

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

about whether the philosopher was established or not.

01:01:42--> 01:01:49

To ask you, whether you would argue, to establish a life of worship or not.

01:01:53--> 01:01:56

So we have to begin with ourselves.

01:01:59--> 01:02:06

Our acts of worship has to be which actually have an effect on ourselves.

01:02:08--> 01:02:11

We have to go beyond zero.

01:02:13--> 01:02:24

We have to make Islam real in our lives. We have to live according to the Spirit, not only with the spirit of Islam,

01:02:26--> 01:02:28

we make it real and I individual life

01:02:29--> 01:02:30

and in our family,

01:02:31--> 01:02:34

how we deal with our lives and our children.

01:02:37--> 01:02:39

And we look at the environment around us.

01:02:40--> 01:02:46

Because we have to go with the things that are most directly related to us. We look at the environment around us.

01:02:47--> 01:02:49

We don't have Islamic schools.

01:02:51--> 01:02:53

We don't have Islamic institutions.

01:02:54--> 01:03:03

The key for us, is the establishment of those institutions, establishment of a community and Islamic community here where we are.

01:03:07--> 01:03:09

This is number one

01:03:12--> 01:03:23

for us to focus on other parts of the world, and we have not fulfilled our responsibility here. Our children are going to non Muslim schools.

01:03:24--> 01:03:26

Kneel indoctrinated with Cooper

01:03:28--> 01:03:29

and corruption.

01:03:31--> 01:03:34

That we are raising the banner.

01:03:37--> 01:03:40

We movement in the world.

01:03:45--> 01:03:50

We have not fulfilled our responsibility. our priorities are upside down.

01:03:52--> 01:03:54

We have put the cart before the horse.

01:03:56--> 01:03:57

This is the reality.

01:03:59--> 01:03:59

We have

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

to establish Islam

01:04:04--> 01:04:05

as communities.

01:04:07--> 01:04:12

There are enough Muslims here. There's enough knowledge, enough technology,

01:04:13--> 01:04:16

wealth, to establish communities.

01:04:17--> 01:04:19

But we have not made this a priority.

01:04:22--> 01:04:24

And this is where we have failed.

01:04:28--> 01:04:33

And this is wrong has made us

01:04:34--> 01:04:35

eligible

01:04:36--> 01:04:38

for the curse of a lot.

01:04:40--> 01:04:46

I've made us slip up in our ranks. Because we're all concerned about both

01:04:48--> 01:04:59

issues beyond our shores beyond the environment but our community. We're so concerned about external issues with all the different opinions of this one and that one in this movie.

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

Up, all of us, because we all have different opinions.

01:05:04--> 01:05:12

And we have not established Muslim schools that we have focused on those priorities,

01:05:13--> 01:05:26

energies and through that, you will find our ranks come together strong, because it takes sacrifice. It requires real sacrifice from us to establish the community here.

01:05:28--> 01:05:31

It doesn't take any sacrifice to raise

01:05:34--> 01:05:34

the bar for this.

01:05:39--> 01:05:40

Easy to make these

01:05:43--> 01:05:45

difficult to establish this

01:05:47--> 01:05:54

to make the necessary sacrifices to make Islam a reality here. And Zach, in fact, is a priority.

01:05:57--> 01:06:03

It must be in accordance with knowledge. I'm not saying that.

01:06:04--> 01:06:17

You don't need to know. What is the correct way to worship or not? Who is allowed? What is Islam? Of course, you have to know? Because how can you set up an institution to educate them about what we don't know.

01:06:18--> 01:06:21

So that goes without saying, but having

01:06:22--> 01:06:25

understood those basic

01:06:27--> 01:06:44

aspects of Islam, then we have to apply it. We apply it in the communities around us, it means that brothers and sisters have to educate themselves, they have to gain the necessary skills to build a community

01:06:51--> 01:06:52

stay at home

01:06:53--> 01:06:59

nagging from this system, for gladly we're collecting the dough

01:07:01--> 01:07:09

no matter how they justify the webinar, I've been working and I've been paying so much to kick them out of my income years now I want to get back my life.

01:07:14--> 01:07:18

Okay, if this is your philosophy, then what you should do is you

01:07:20--> 01:07:26

need to go out of your salary for the last five years that you've been working and that

01:07:29--> 01:07:31

took out of the job but then you don't have any right after that.

01:07:34--> 01:07:38

That nobody's gonna do that they just want the general justification, you know, it's my right.

01:07:40--> 01:07:46

So they don't educate themselves, about the kind of skills the society is offered

01:07:48--> 01:07:58

for education throughout the both the school and you know, to various levels. But people don't take advantage of that if they want you know, we go to universities or kidnap

01:07:59--> 01:08:02

women, women teachers,

01:08:04--> 01:08:06

stay at home asleep in bed, the government for my sustenance.

01:08:09--> 01:08:14

When people came to come and ask permission to bed, forbade them.

01:08:15--> 01:08:17

Nadine is simple.

01:08:19--> 01:08:26

Levels need to know that taking the goal of begging, and it is simple. Unless

01:08:27--> 01:08:28

you are truly

01:08:29--> 01:08:46

interpretable, in the sense that you are a cripple, or you have some inability, or you lost your job, absolutely know what I mean. You have to have very clear justification, not the one that you give me. Or you give other people

01:08:47--> 01:08:49

the justification before

01:08:51--> 01:08:56

that you have the physical capability to go out and work or you're not working.

01:08:57--> 01:09:05

You're not being productive. You're not a part of the solution. You're a part of the problem.

01:09:06--> 01:09:21

A problem with your children inherits from you grew up with that mentality. And we will have generations of those who are just willing to take the take from the government.

01:09:23--> 01:09:32

And we will not do that will not produce anything. And Muslims will be scorned in the society will be known for our laziness

01:09:34--> 01:09:35

and everything else that comes with

01:09:37--> 01:09:45

not being able to present Islam to the communities at large. Because we don't represent Islam. We have bad examples

01:09:46--> 01:09:52

of discouraging people who wants to know about Islam, because we are the worst of examples.

01:09:53--> 01:09:56

When we were supposed to be the best. We are the worst.

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

So my dear brother,

01:10:04--> 01:10:14

unfortunately, time for the sisters, the time, which was allotted is supposed to have been until 430 has been cut short.

01:10:15--> 01:10:19

The original schedule on the program was until 430.

01:10:22--> 01:10:26

Until 430, central

01:10:28--> 01:10:31

time has run out, I know you have some questions, and

01:10:33--> 01:10:34

I've run middle classes.

01:10:35--> 01:10:38

So I just have to say the

01:10:40--> 01:10:52

evening in the finals, hopefully we can get into the questions in Sunday, and I'm sorry about this. But again, just in closing, I just like to say,

01:10:55--> 01:11:01

wrapped up. And I've been told we do have some minutes a person can get up from

01:11:03--> 01:11:05

weapon here, I just like to say that.

01:11:09--> 01:11:10

I try it

01:11:12--> 01:11:13

after the second order.

01:11:14--> 01:11:20

Number one is the establishment of Islam, in ourselves, in our families and in our communities.

01:11:22--> 01:11:29

Having established Islam, then duty to convey the message of Islam, to learn the language that is

01:11:31--> 01:11:33

to convey, to go around

01:11:34--> 01:11:51

without establishing ourselves who will not be very effective and convenient. That doesn't mean that simply because we haven't established it, they don't strive to convey because the requirements to convey Islam is something which is the duty of each and every Muslim.

01:11:52--> 01:11:56

Every Muslim is obliged to convey the word of a lot of those around

01:11:59--> 01:12:00

us in the Bible.

01:12:06--> 01:12:09

There are commanded to call to invite people to Islam. And

01:12:11--> 01:12:20

in order to remove the boats that we might have in our minds that were incapable of coming to Florida for the experts, the scholars essentially said that it reminded me whether I

01:12:22--> 01:12:25

convey whatever you have to me, even if it is only one person.

01:12:26--> 01:12:27

So the obligation

01:12:31--> 01:12:38

to feel that this is an obligation. Because if we didn't fulfill that obligation, then we fall under the curse of Allah.

01:12:39--> 01:12:44

Because for the sin of hiding the knowledge,

01:12:45--> 01:12:51

hiding knowledge of the way to salvation, this is a major lesson about

01:12:53--> 01:12:56

the middle of you know, well nominally you know,

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

we allowed to

01:13:10--> 01:13:14

reveal the clear messages and guidance in the book

01:13:20--> 01:13:20

commands

01:13:22--> 01:13:26

such as, by Allah and curse, by

01:13:32--> 01:13:33

a curse

01:13:34--> 01:13:39

and those who hide the word of Allah for mankind.

01:13:47--> 01:14:00

Every day we come in contact with the non non believers around us, but we are silent. We have opportunity to express to inform, to convey the word and we don't, when we are

01:14:04--> 01:14:13

inviting people to plan is a day to day responsibility, which none of us is excused from

01:14:18--> 01:14:18

shala

01:14:19--> 01:14:40

is trying to clear and in the few minutes remaining will try to answer quickly a couple of questions. I just like to say one point, before we go into the question, there was a particular question which are cut off last night and in explaining I will do a judgement,

01:14:41--> 01:14:49

some massage from what I read and understood versus regarding a man and a woman in marriage.

01:14:52--> 01:14:59

If a man does not mean things right, she has the right to refuse him in

01:15:01--> 01:15:04

I spoke about last night, the opinion of some styles.

01:15:05--> 01:15:08

However, according to our other scholars,

01:15:09--> 01:15:15

this opinion is a minority opinion. And the majority opinion is that

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

the marriage is that the man has the right is right, however.

01:15:22--> 01:15:30

And they reiterate, if a man does not maintain his rights, she has the right to seek divorce.

01:15:31--> 01:15:33

If the man does not maintain

01:15:34--> 01:15:39

the right to keep the work, she has chosen not to, chosen to remain with him.

01:15:41--> 01:15:46

She now accepting that circumstance, for not refusing in

01:15:48--> 01:15:49

service, like the correct platform,

01:15:51--> 01:15:51

does not

01:15:52--> 01:15:57

allow for the lecture on the priorities of Muslim where our priorities as Muslims are,

01:16:00--> 01:16:19

I have a few announcements that I'm going to make. And while while I do that, often the questions that we have here, in the short time that's left, the most important one is there's a little boy who calls himself Mohammed is being held up at the end of the table, has lost his mother and father. They're known to him as mama and Baba.

01:16:22--> 01:16:40

Anybody can see him or knows who he belongs to. Another announcement is the better bad back, or I don't know how to pronounce it, maybe babe back? Ba Ba K. Your wife is not well, would you please meet her where you met her yesterday. And just one other announcement that sort of relates to that.

01:16:41--> 01:17:04

Although we would like to help as much as possible, we did have a number of requests, it is not possible to announce all the personal messages from the husbands and wives and their families in the matter of the talks last night and such as this one I just mentioned, legacies accepted. So as far as making arrangements with your wife, your families, would you please make these arrangements prior to the talks this evening?

01:17:05--> 01:17:11

as to where and when you will meet? And because those things, of course, any type of emergency situations will be announced.

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

Okay, the first question

01:17:16--> 01:17:20

that has crept in, if you draw is an obligation on us?

01:17:22--> 01:17:25

How can it be allowed for us to set up a community in

01:17:28--> 01:17:28

believing that

01:17:33--> 01:17:56

is an obligation and if we are incapable of practicing Islam, as we are not about establishing a flower and conveying the word of Allah to the people on the planet? This is what justifies our stay here. If we're not about that, then we should make it. But then again, there are some people who have no means

01:17:57--> 01:18:05

they don't have the economic means to get out of this country. So what do they do? Do they just jump up and down for collateral?

01:18:07--> 01:18:11

Is that the other option for them? No, they have to make

01:18:12--> 01:18:28

that situation here, make it as Islamic as they can, in order to protect their families that eventually they may be able to raise enough. You know, economic means to get out of their family and go for the summer grants

01:18:30--> 01:18:31

is an obligation

01:18:32--> 01:18:33

in general.

01:18:34--> 01:18:40

However, if people are involved in conveying the word of Allah, then that is justification for faith.

01:18:43--> 01:18:45

about establishing Islam, here,

01:18:46--> 01:18:58

conveying that word, to the people of Islam, not an obligation on them. There's an obligation and those who are living the life

01:18:59--> 01:19:09

who are not practicing Islam properly, their children are going to non Muslim school, that's okay. They don't care. It doesn't matter. It is logic on them.

01:19:10--> 01:19:16

Because they're not able to practice Islam properly. And we're not trying to do anything about

01:19:17--> 01:19:31

severen sin for the year that girls were involved in trying to establish community in order to convey the word of a lot of those around them justified in remaining here, and that should be the priority

01:19:45--> 01:19:46

for some people

01:19:48--> 01:19:59

when promoting the notion of kalapa and advocating the downfall of the Muslim leaders, they're saying that they're the ones actually promoting the fundamentals.

01:20:00--> 01:20:04

Because one of our attributes is that he is the lawgiver.

01:20:05--> 01:20:06

And the ruler

01:20:08--> 01:20:18

and the ruler Do not judge by what allies reveal. And their groups say that we're actually in reality promoting our aid and our data. And not just

01:20:24--> 01:20:31

the idea of promoting the setting up of Islamic law. Of course, this is an aspect of Fauci

01:20:32--> 01:20:43

which none of us in the process of learning Islam and teaching it can deny, or should ignore, or ever refuse spoke of his priority.

01:20:45--> 01:20:46

We cannot,

01:20:47--> 01:20:50

at this point in time do

01:20:51--> 01:20:54

anything which will produce

01:20:56--> 01:20:59

no matter what we do here, we cannot produce.

01:21:01--> 01:21:16

The only way that we need the apart from the tougher is to go to the Muslim lands, which are somewhere closer to the establishment of the law, and those that are

01:21:19--> 01:21:20

not here standing here.

01:21:22--> 01:21:28

Moving here, we cannot. So it is empty, empty words,

01:21:29--> 01:21:41

if we are keeping it as a private by educational policy, and when we're educating people with this type of understanding the whole scheme of things, we educate them sign that it doesn't become the broker.

01:21:43--> 01:21:49

That either a bad rap, or the unity of worship can only be

01:21:50--> 01:21:52

done, if we established enough.

01:21:55--> 01:21:58

Because there were many cases of the practice

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

and in certain aspects of prophethood. When he was

01:22:09--> 01:22:11

are we saying that fella was not fulfilling.

01:22:18--> 01:22:23

He is in concept. And in practice,

01:22:24--> 01:22:24

practice,

01:22:26--> 01:22:27

when possible,

01:22:28--> 01:22:31

principle of early for the group,

01:22:33--> 01:22:35

to change what I hand when we are

01:22:41--> 01:22:44

trying to change with our hands when we are unable

01:22:46--> 01:23:20

to change what we can, that we can do here and now we can make changes in the society, we can make real changes in the society, we can have an impact on the society, we can convey the world, the word of Allah, to the people of the society, if we focus on the establishment of Islam, within our tribe, and in our communities, that we can change and this is what I like to ask us about what we didn't change when we could change not what we couldn't change that we didn't focus on

01:23:38--> 01:23:40

to the hobbyist when the whole of mankind was taken from Adam has learned

01:23:43--> 01:23:44

from crime

01:23:45--> 01:23:46

and crafting

01:23:50--> 01:24:00

Am I not sure not enough to get up become one on this? The question is was the presence of allow high witness visually, we can get into that.

01:24:02--> 01:24:06

Vision normally is associated with eyes.

01:24:08--> 01:24:09

We see things vision is

01:24:11--> 01:24:14

when I took us from Adam, we weren't going

01:24:16--> 01:24:26

to be looking at AI so there is no issue of vision of ally cetera cetera. The point is that Allah questioned us

01:24:27--> 01:24:30

and made us bear witness. And we are both

01:24:36--> 01:24:38

check them out. And with that,
