00:00:14--> 00:00:25

our prayers due to ally melas Peace and blessings beyond the last prophet Muhammad Sallallahu I while he was settling, and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.

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

Our last

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


00:00:35--> 00:00:39

was Question number 147.

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

What's the number 147?

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

in which we looked at the proof for the daily decree?

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

And we also did along with that 146

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

and 46 and 147 146 being the annual decree

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

Am I correct?

00:01:17--> 00:01:24

So, what we're going on to now is the is question number 148.

00:01:26--> 00:01:32

What does the preordained meant of misery and happiness? necessitate?

00:01:34--> 00:01:39

What does the preordained meant of misery and happiness? necessitate?

00:01:41--> 00:01:58

The author alchemy explains that all the divine books and Sooners are ways of the prophets agree that pre ordained meant should not prevent the doing of good deeds.

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


00:02:01--> 00:02:07

should it necessitate reliance on what has been decreed.

00:02:15--> 00:02:20

Rather, it necessitates seriousness and striving,

00:02:22--> 00:02:27

enthusiasts and with an it with enthusiasm for righteous actions.

00:02:30--> 00:02:35

Thus, when the prophet SAW Selim informed his companions about preordained meant

00:02:36--> 00:02:55

the occurrence of the Divine Decree and the drying of the pen due to its writing, some of them asked, shouldn't we rely upon what has been written for us and abandoned doing good deeds? He replied, la era Malou.

00:02:56--> 00:03:09

For colon Maria Saroyan, Lima Haleakala No, do good deeds, for each person will find it easy to do what has been written for him.

00:03:12--> 00:03:25

Then he recited from Surah Lail. as for him who gives fears a law and believes in the best reward, I will make the path of goodness easy for him.

00:03:26--> 00:03:36

But for he who was miserly, thinking himself self sufficient and denying the best reward, I will make the path for evil easy for him.

00:03:39--> 00:03:40

The author

00:03:42--> 00:03:44

begins his explanation

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

with the

00:03:48--> 00:03:58

statement that all the divine books and suddenness of the prophets agree with preordained that pre ordained men should not prevent the doing of good deeds. Now,

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

does he have a text

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

to specifically support that statement?

00:04:07--> 00:04:10

There isn't any specific text,

00:04:11--> 00:04:16

this is something which is assumed.

00:04:18--> 00:04:31

What can be concluded looking at all of the various religions in the world if we say that they are leftovers from earlier revelations, those that are

00:04:32--> 00:04:59

original, we can say they're ancient, not the newly made up things like idea and buy and these kind of things, but things that have been around like Hinduism, you know, Buddhism, ancient religions, right Judaism, etc. What we can see from them is that they all instruct their followers to avoid some, if not most forms of evil

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

and instruct them to do righteousness.

00:05:04--> 00:05:12

This is something across the board ever all the religions are doing that right? And

00:05:13--> 00:05:28

if they believe that preordained meant would prevent one from doing good deeds that would contradict that. So the very fact that they all call their followers to do good deeds

00:05:30--> 00:06:23

means that they do believe that preordained meant those of them that have peer damage is a part of their system. They do believe that peer detainment should not stop one from doing good deeds. So that's a conclusion that can be drawn from the existing reality. Of course, the fact that all of these religions, you know, call to righteousness to do to do good deeds and to avoid different forms of evil etc. This has led the ignorant to conclude that it doesn't matter what religion one follows, as long as one is sincere, and lives a good life. Yes, certain conclusions that can come from it, you can go down that road, right. However, in doing so, they have belittled, the greatest of all

00:06:23--> 00:06:25

sins, shirk,

00:06:26--> 00:06:37

which is the only unforgivable sin if one dies without repenting from it. And this is common to all of these other religions. Sure.

00:06:39--> 00:06:41

One way or another,

00:06:45--> 00:07:06

the author went on to save a law, the one free from all imperfections, has decreed the destinies prepared the causes for them to manifest. And he is infinitely wise in establishing the causes and their effects on this life, and the next.

00:07:08--> 00:07:25

Furthermore, he has facilitated for all his creation, that which He created them for in this world and the hereafter. So he is the one who prepares the means and facilitates doing them.

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


00:07:29--> 00:08:09

what he's saying here, is that, again, because you're looking at the issue, where the problems are Salam has said, you know, he remember the issue of the two books, where it came out here, two books, one, all the people who are going to be happy, meaning going to paradise, and all the people who went to be miserable, ultimately going to hell, they may be happy in different points in this life, but they're ultimately going to hell. So they are considered to be the people of misery. So, and there are a number of other holidays we talked about with Pastor Sam said, you know, Allah created Adam to call the dissenters and said, A portion or go into paradise portion going to hell. So this

00:08:09--> 00:08:21

is what we're looking at the issue that this is all written, should that then stop a person from doing good deeds? Well, what he points out here is that

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

though these

00:08:25--> 00:08:27

deeds have been destined have been written,

00:08:28--> 00:08:36

Allah has created in our lives, the causes, which would

00:08:37--> 00:08:41

let them manifest let these good deeds manifest.

00:08:43--> 00:08:52

Right. And he has made that easy. For each and every one of us. We choose.

00:08:54--> 00:08:59

We choose those causes, we see them in front of us, right. And we choose,

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

whatever we choose is what has been made easy for us. And that was what was written.

00:09:08--> 00:09:11

Since what is clarifying that there are

00:09:13--> 00:09:41

the there are causes and effects. There's a cause and effect system going on in the world. It's not just a one way. No, no, it is just blindly operating in our lives, no, allows other because this is where you think of us being forced, where it's blindly operating. There are no causes to get these effects. They're just effects.

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

Right? There is no wisdom, or no thread which links it all together, linked to good choices, you know, good desires, good emotions, good, whatever. It's just happening. So he's got

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

Find know, there are causes with effects. We choose them but it was already written.

00:10:12--> 00:10:16

It may not be is he mentioned in the commentary on the creative

00:10:17--> 00:10:22

to hallway, when a law guides someone to faith,

00:10:23--> 00:10:25

it is from his grace.

00:10:26--> 00:10:34

When a law guide someone to faith, it is from his grace. So praise is due to him for that

00:10:36--> 00:10:39

praise is due to him for that.

00:10:41--> 00:10:44

It's from his grace. Why? Because

00:10:46--> 00:11:02

though we may have done some of the causes, you know, which should have gotten us guidance, we have also done many causes, which should have caused us to be left on our own.

00:11:04--> 00:11:36

But a law has multiplied the value of the causes that we have done for good for guidance, and blessed us, graced us with His guidance. So that's why we praise Him. This is following the same principles. As Ahmed said, Nobody will go to Paradise based on their needs. It's the same basic principle, there is a connection with deeds, but it's not based solely on deeds, it's the grace of a law, which takes us through right inshallah, if we happen to make it.

00:11:38--> 00:11:39

May we all make it

00:11:40--> 00:11:42

when he leaves another to wonder,

00:11:43--> 00:11:48

it is from His justice. So praise is due to him for it

00:11:50--> 00:12:13

when he leaves another person to go astray, which he refers to as Miss guiding them, but remember, we mentioned the verses before, where law said, for example, when their hearts deviated, then a lot caused them to be deviated, you know, so it's still their action first, right? So if a law allows somebody leaves that person to wander in misguidance,

00:12:14--> 00:12:27

it is from His justice, meaning that that person didn't deserve that guidance. If he were to give him guidance, just like he gave the person who made an effort, and he graced him with guidance, then

00:12:28--> 00:12:38

what would be the point? It wouldn't? The there would be injustice here, that person has made the effort to try to do some good deeds, this person made no effort may not have good deeds, both are guided.

00:12:40--> 00:12:41

Is the Justice here? No.

00:12:43--> 00:12:46

So the justice of a law

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

is what

00:12:50--> 00:12:54

causes that individual to be left to wonder.

00:12:55--> 00:12:59

In other words, when a law divided the two people into two groups,

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

one going to paradise one going to hell, those going to bite us are going based on the laws of grace, those going to hell are based on a law of justice. So in both cases, it's positive, positive decisions. It's not, you know, evil thing happening. Is this right? This goodness here, as the law is good, and you only accept what that which is good.

00:13:25--> 00:13:44

Okay, this is the point that they're raising, how do we perceive this? And because some people raised this question that was created all of these people, so many of them are going to have a law says, I'm going to fill, you know, hell with the jinn and humans, all of them fill up the healthcare.

00:13:46--> 00:13:57

process, Elon said, what those go into paradise was like, you know, white here on the back of a black ball, right? Just one here, one in every 1000.

00:13:58--> 00:14:02

So, why did the law create all of these

00:14:03--> 00:14:06

999 going to hell.

00:14:09--> 00:14:19

Of course, he wanted for them all to go to Paradise, but he gave them the choice and His justice demands that they go to hell.

00:14:21--> 00:14:30

And the one out of the nine, the 1000, going to paradise, His grace permits that individual to go to Paradise.

00:14:33--> 00:14:42

So there is no evil involved here. There's no unfairness which is what the non Muslims tend to try to raise, you know, why would a law create people and put them in hell?

00:14:46--> 00:14:47


00:14:49--> 00:14:50

is justice.

00:14:54--> 00:14:55

The author goes on to say

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

Thus, if a person

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

knows that the benefits of his life hereafter are linked to the means set for it in this present life,

00:15:11--> 00:15:22

he would strive even harder to implement them, then he would for the means of his present life, and the benefits of his worldly affairs.

00:15:25--> 00:15:38

If a person knows that the benefits of this life are linked to the means set for it, that's benefits of the hereafter sorry, are linked to the mean set for it.

00:15:39--> 00:15:46

The causes are the things if we do that, it should cause us to go make it to be successful in the next life if we know that

00:15:48--> 00:15:51

then if we believe in the Hereafter,

00:15:52--> 00:16:09

it should, it should give us impetus. It should give us a push to want to do the things which are going to get us there more so then the causes and effects for our

00:16:10--> 00:16:36

world the life and that's what is driving us now. Right? You know, what the greatest force in our lives if we see what do we make the biggest efforts for? That's for the things of this world, when we know that such and such will get us a dishonor that, you know, we're first to get there to do it. But now it's Acura. Well, insha Allah,

00:16:37--> 00:16:57

this is our attitude. And that really reflects on the degree or the level of our belief. That's what it comes down down to the lack of certainty of faith in our own Shahada and our own declaration of faith, there is a weakness there is

00:16:59--> 00:17:01

a man is a weakness.

00:17:04--> 00:17:19

This matter was completely understood by the Companion of the prophet SAW Selim, who said, upon hearing the narrations regarding preordained meant, I have never been more diligent to do good deeds than I am at present.

00:17:22--> 00:17:27

I have never been more diligent to do good deeds than I am at present, it didn't slow them down.

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

It didn't

00:17:32--> 00:17:34

discourage them dishearten them.

00:17:37--> 00:17:56

In this regard, the prophet SAW Salam said, It is Allah Maya and farrokh was starting Billa will attaches. be enthusiastic about what benefits you seek help from a law and do not become frustrated.

00:17:59--> 00:18:02

be enthusiastic about what benefits you

00:18:03--> 00:18:06

some translators cherish what benefits you

00:18:10--> 00:18:11

be concerned about it?

00:18:13--> 00:18:19

Meaning what benefits you not just in this life, but particularly in the next life?

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

seek help from Allah.

00:18:23--> 00:18:37

Put your trust in Allah seek his help, as well. So sentiment said that anybody who could guarantee him, he would not ask anybody for anything, he would guarantee that person paradise.

00:18:40--> 00:18:41

This is a guarantee,

00:18:42--> 00:18:43

promise on the promises.

00:18:44--> 00:18:49

All you have to do is not ask anybody for anything.

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

That's a tall order.

00:18:54--> 00:18:55

That's why the

00:18:56--> 00:18:58

reward is so great.

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

And what's linked to that, obviously, is you seek your help from Allah. So that means you need help rather than turning to people who turn to Allah

00:19:10--> 00:19:12

and don't become frustrated.

00:19:13--> 00:19:18

Why? Because in trying to do the things which will benefit you in the next life,

00:19:21--> 00:19:22

seeking your help from Allah.

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

You will be challenged with frustration.

00:19:30--> 00:19:33

To fulfill those things will not necessarily be easy.

00:19:34--> 00:19:36

As promised, I Sanomat said

00:19:38--> 00:19:41

how'd you bet in Genoa to Bill Macquarie?

00:19:44--> 00:19:48

Right? That Paradise is surrounded by

00:19:51--> 00:19:53

things we don't like.

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

things which are not easy to do.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

Our hearts are so

00:20:02--> 00:20:03

We know they're right.

00:20:04--> 00:20:07

But we're lazy. There are other things we prefer to do.

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


00:20:10--> 00:20:16

when you're trying to do these things, and for example you find in your family are the only one.

00:20:18--> 00:20:37

They're the only one trying to do it. If everybody was doing it, it would be a lot easier. You know, everybody's trying to do this. Everybody was committed, that would be a lot easier. But if it's just you, you're the one who's woken up. Everybody else in the family is asleep. It can become frustrating.

00:20:39--> 00:20:48

Because of course, you're not going to see results. Now. We're talking about something which has value and results in the next life not in this life ultimately.

00:20:57--> 00:21:00

In another On another occasion, the prophet SAW Selim was asked

00:21:04--> 00:21:14

what do you think of medicine, we take as treatment, and Rokia which we use? Does any of that repel the decree of a law?

00:21:16--> 00:21:18

Actually, this narration which

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

the author brings,

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

it had

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

a piece of it missing

00:21:28--> 00:21:45

the full narration, founding scenario, as well as tirmidhi. It said, What do you think of medicine, we treat ourselves with incantations we recite over ourselves through Rokia incantations and shields we use to protect ourselves.

00:21:48--> 00:21:49

He said,

00:21:51--> 00:21:57

you know, does this repel the decree of Allah? Meaning, if somebody is going to

00:21:58--> 00:22:07

cut you with a sword or sticky with a spear, and use the shield to defend yourself? Did you stop something which is going to happen to you

00:22:09--> 00:22:17

is what is questioning the medicine? You know, this is this is what the idea that he's questioning here. Logically, he's trying to reason this thing out logically.

00:22:18--> 00:22:23

If you didn't, in other words, if you didn't take a shield, you went into battle, you didn't take any shield?

00:22:26--> 00:22:38

Was it destined for you that that guy who's trying to cut you is gonna miss you and trying to stick he was gonna miss. So even though you use the shield, you're not doing anything. If you didn't use a shield, or you the shield would be all the same?

00:22:40--> 00:22:41

This is what he's questioning.

00:22:42--> 00:22:43

Is it all the same?

00:22:45--> 00:22:52

So the process along with replied, here, mill cadila, they are from the decree of Allah.

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

Right? He meant by that it is a law of decreed good and evil, as well as the causes for each one of them.

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

So you're using the shield is from a loss.

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


00:23:11--> 00:23:16

You're not stopping anything, which was already written, that would happen to you.

00:23:17--> 00:23:22

But you're stopping the things that was written would not happen to you because you use that shield.

00:23:24--> 00:23:46

That's the point. Right? That's what's written that because you use that shield at that time, you would not be stuck or cut or whatever. Similarly, use the medicine. Similarly, you did the Rokia, you know, these provided protection, not from something which a law had written for you.

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


00:23:50--> 00:23:52

they provided protection.

00:23:53--> 00:24:09

And that is what the law had written, because the law had written that in the use of Rukia, in the use of medicine, and the use of shields, they do protect the individual from harm. So there is a real cause and effect here.

00:24:10--> 00:24:24

There is a real cause and effect taking place. So if you use that, then it will have that effect. And that's what Allah has written. You chose to use the medicine. So he wrote that you will use the medicine and

00:24:26--> 00:24:35

get well. You take the rokeya and you're cured, use a shield and you weren't harmed.

00:24:38--> 00:24:43

So, again, he's bringing out the point here is working on a point.

00:24:44--> 00:24:46

The point of

00:24:48--> 00:24:58

whether one should as we said in the very beginning, you know, whether one should avoid doing good deeds, leave them no point

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

and you

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

US rely on what is decreed.

00:25:04--> 00:25:05

Since it's already decreed,

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

right this is, this is what he is responding to. It is a it is an idea which is an ancient idea.

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

In the Quran, the idea basically is using colored to defend the sin and corruption at the back of it

00:25:26--> 00:25:40

in ancient times, last month Allah mentioned in surah zakharov surah surah verse 24 callooh lo Shah Rukh Manu, ma Aveda. Now whom

00:25:41--> 00:25:44

mala whom bialik Amina L.

00:25:45--> 00:26:05

In whom ilaya for soon. And they said, if it had been the will of the Most Gracious Allah, we should not have worshipped them, the false gods. A law says they have no knowledge whatsoever of that. They're only telling lies

00:26:07--> 00:26:10

is their argument. Everything was the laws will,

00:26:11--> 00:26:20

we wouldn't have worshiped. And there are the verses where it says neither us nor are for parents, they would not worship other than a life it was the last one,

00:26:21--> 00:26:23

as it is allows well that they were worshipping but

00:26:24--> 00:26:27

it is based on their choice.

00:26:30--> 00:26:34

And when a person for example, a non Muslim when you try to tell them about Islam, they say listen,

00:26:35--> 00:26:36


00:26:38--> 00:26:44

one brother, what's up Islam said that his father had said, I was born a Christian, and I'm going to die a Christian.

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

Even if God came down on Earth,

00:26:50--> 00:26:54

right, and brought me evidence, I'm still gonna die a Christian.

00:26:58--> 00:27:03

That's part of that same mentality, isn't it? You know,

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

that's what

00:27:06--> 00:27:11

I mean. That's what my four part fathers were in. I'm gonna stick with that I'm gonna go with it.

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


00:27:19--> 00:27:32

those who hold that there is no point in doing righteous deeds. And in relying on the Divine Decree, they consider human beings like feathers in the wind, or twigs in a stream.

00:27:34--> 00:27:38

feathers in the wind, the wind blows this way the feather blows up, blows, that way it blows away.

00:27:40--> 00:27:44

The twig in the stream, the twig has no control over where it goes, the stream takes a tear there around.

00:27:47--> 00:28:06

So it means basically, that human beings are forced or compelled to do whatever they do, and that they have no influence over their actions. Such people often forsake prayer and fasting, along with supplication and putting their trust in Allah.

00:28:07--> 00:28:12

For whatever Allah has written, already must come to pass. What's the point in praying?

00:28:13--> 00:28:26

Why Raise your hands in prayer? The laws already written what's gonna happen? What's the use of prayer? See, this is the philosophy of those who hold that. But

00:28:27--> 00:28:29

if we look honestly, in their life

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

that's not how they function in the rest of their life is it?

00:28:35--> 00:28:38

You could say, okay, you don't pray.

00:28:39--> 00:28:43

Whatever law is written for you of provision has already been written.

00:28:44--> 00:28:46

You don't need to go to work. Stay home.

00:28:48--> 00:28:53

Why go to work? No, he's gonna make sure he gets up on time and gets out to work.

00:28:55--> 00:28:56

Standard, isn't it?

00:28:58--> 00:29:06

When it comes to a religious obligation? Oh, no, whatever is written is coming anyway. When it comes to his dunya

00:29:09--> 00:29:16

she's gonna go and grab all the the causes to get that dunya for himself is not depending on what has been decreed.

00:29:18--> 00:29:20

So we see it, there is a double standard.

00:29:27--> 00:29:28

Such pa said,

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

This belief is called jabber.

00:29:33--> 00:29:35

Those who follow this or call the jabariya.

00:29:37--> 00:29:39

From jabber jabber means compulsion.

00:29:40--> 00:29:53

And it basically takes away human responsibility and the burden of sin by putting the blame on forces which motivate human will and lead them to commit sins,

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

forces which motivate human will and lead them to commit sin.

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

What forces? Are those?

00:30:05--> 00:30:11

The forces of other? Yes? And who put the force of the other there?

00:30:12--> 00:30:15

So who are they blaming a law

00:30:17--> 00:30:37

that they attribute injustice to Allah. They accuse him of doing things in vain and without purpose. They demolish the religion by undermining the purpose of revealed books, sending messengers and inviting to Allah XPath. All of that becomes meaningless for you take this position,

00:30:39--> 00:30:51

the modern version of this, or this thought, and this is also good, you know, because a lot of times people, Muslims asked me, What do I say to my relatives who don't pray?

00:30:53--> 00:30:54

They don't fast, they don't

00:30:56--> 00:31:10

talk to them, Why? Why don't they do these things? You'll hear them saying the same thing. What's the point? You know, God has already written it. We're Muslims, whatever. And it's already written for us, if I'm going to go to hell, I'm going to hell finish.

00:31:14--> 00:31:20

So you try to reason with them to try to get them to reflect, stop and think

00:31:21--> 00:31:33

that's how you're treating Heaven and Hell, your religion, but you don't treat the rest of your life the same way. So what does that tell you? So you're not you're not thinking logically and not acting logically.

00:31:36--> 00:31:38

The modern version of this thought

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

is the claim that the human will is controlled by instincts, genes, and environment is common. This is the arguments which have been used to stop capital punishment, you know,

00:31:57--> 00:32:13

corporal punishment, move all of this is people do what they do. Criminals do what they did, because of their environment, or something genetic, or instincts, which are uncontrolled and had no control over them.

00:32:14--> 00:32:20

And this became the main defense for homosexuality, and other sins in the West,

00:32:21--> 00:32:31

which eventually led to the general acceptance of homosexuality as a viable alternative lifestyle, it's coming out of this same line of reasoning,

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

jeans, versus homosexual, not because of choices they make, but because

00:32:39--> 00:32:42

biologically, this is what has caused them to be this way.

00:32:44--> 00:32:56

So if so many people are this way, then it must be an alternative lifestyle. So people are free to choose, you know, and it's become honorable.

00:32:58--> 00:33:08

homosexuals are honored their lords and peers and stuff in the government, their senators and others, etc.

00:33:10--> 00:33:11

They will become priests,

00:33:12--> 00:33:15

ministers in religious institutions.

00:33:16--> 00:33:23

So they have been they've reached the position of honor in the society. So now it is considered to be

00:33:24--> 00:33:30

you know, coarse and crude and backwards to speak out against homosexuality.

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

Question number 149.

00:33:41--> 00:33:44

What is the proof for the third level,

00:33:45--> 00:33:48

which is belief in the divine will

00:33:50--> 00:34:14

believe in the divine will actually the author here, you know, brings a series of verses from the Quran and Hadees there are innumerable ones. He mentioned the law most I said, well, Mata Shah una Illa Allah, but you cannot will unless Allah wills

00:34:15--> 00:34:19

you cannot will unless Allah wills

00:34:21--> 00:34:22


00:34:23--> 00:34:25

though we do have the will.

00:34:27--> 00:34:30

Our will is dependent on our laws will,

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

his will permits our will to operate.

00:34:39--> 00:34:59

So belief in the Divine Will this is what we're looking at. These are the evidences. That was in Surah Al insan, verse 30. Then we had to alcohol verses 23 and 24. A lot of cool and Alicia in in the fire alone, Danica harden in law, a law and never say

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

Anything I shall do such and such a thing tomorrow, except with the saying, if Allah wills

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


00:35:13--> 00:35:14

my Yesha Illa

00:35:16--> 00:35:20

you lilu are my woman

00:35:22--> 00:35:36

and I'm Where am I? Where am I Yeshua Allahu Allah sirata mustard team, whoever Allah sends a stray, a la senza stray whom He wills and he guides on the straight path whom He wills

00:35:38--> 00:35:40

there are a number of other verses were the same.

00:35:41--> 00:35:49

But this is saying instead my headshot or my or my lamb Yeshua, using those who he wishes those who doesn't wish.

00:35:51--> 00:35:52

And also in Surah

00:35:53--> 00:36:16

Surah nahan both of them having the same Willow Shah, Allahu Allah Jalla cometan wahida and had a lot of wield he could have made you all one nation. So Ashura, la la una Gianna whom Ahmed Anwar the same thing, but rather than say using them, if Allah had willed, He could have made them one nation.

00:36:18--> 00:36:24

And so Mohammed valleca Wallonia Sha, Allahu Lantos are among whom,

00:36:27--> 00:36:33

but if it had been allowed, will, he himself would certainly have punished them without you.

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

So elbow rouge falloon Lima you read, he is the daughter of whatever he intends.

00:36:45--> 00:37:33

Sorry, as seen in nema amaroo either other shade and and your call Allahu confira. Khun indeed his command when he intends The thing is only that he says to it be and it is now the wording and so on. For as 40 in Mr. kolu, how Luna, the Shea in either Aradhana who an akula who can fire Khun indeed my word onto a thing, when I intended is only that I say to it be and it is and install an arm and whom whoever Allah wills to guide he opens his chest to Islam. And whoever he wills to send a stray he makes his chest closed and constricted, as if he is climbing into the sky.

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


00:37:38--> 00:37:41

This is one of the verses which they also use to show

00:37:42--> 00:37:45

something of the miracle of the Quran.

00:37:47--> 00:37:56

That the idea of the chest becoming constricted when you go up into the sky and this is something discovered by astronauts

00:37:58--> 00:38:12

with those flying in planes above the atmosphere. There the oxygen is depleted, and the person feels as though his chest is being constricted.

00:38:16--> 00:38:35

And among the heads, we have a Muslim prophesied Salam saying the hearts of the slaves are between the two fingers of the Most Merciful as one heart. He turns them how he wills the hearts of the slaves

00:38:36--> 00:38:39

are between the two fingers of the Most Merciful of a lot.

00:38:40--> 00:38:46

They are like one heart, and he turns them however, he wills

00:38:47--> 00:39:19

like Jesus is a part of a longer Hadith in which Ayesha had heard the prophet SAW Salah making the DA Yama cannibal kulu sambit calbee Allah denecke Oh, one who flips the hearts, steady my heart, on your religion, that he kept saying it often. Well Allah Tajik, you know and in obedience to you, so she asked him, you know, messenger of a law, you know, why do you make this so often? You know,

00:39:21--> 00:39:23

because obviously, you are a prophet of Allah.

00:39:24--> 00:39:25


00:39:26--> 00:39:28

he said, and he responded to her that

00:39:31--> 00:39:33

no one can be certain.

00:39:34--> 00:39:36

No one can be certain.

00:39:38--> 00:39:48

Indeed, the hearts of slaves are between the two fingers are the Most Merciful as one heart and he turns them however he wills

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

and on one occasion when the prophet SAW solemn, was traveling with his companions, they went into a valley went to sleep, and they overslept. They missed

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

salata and fudger sunrise sun had risen, and they missed the prayer.

00:40:05--> 00:40:14

Rob Solomon said in regards to that incident, in the the law, the most high took your souls when He willed, and he returned them, when he will.

00:40:18--> 00:40:28

And he also said, intercede, and you will be rewarded, and allow will fulfill upon the tongue of His Messenger, that which he alone wills.

00:40:30--> 00:40:31

And he also said,

00:40:33--> 00:40:44

Do not say, what Allah and so on so wishes rather say only what Allah wishes then, so and so.

00:40:46--> 00:40:53

In other words, don't share the wish or what takes place between a law and somebody else.

00:40:55--> 00:41:03

If you want to talk about the other person's wish, then say that separately from speaking of a laws wish.

00:41:07--> 00:41:49

And he also said whoever law wishes good for he gives him understanding of the religion, very famous Hadith, my usury law will be higher on your deen is where the term fit comes from. If a Taeho for Dini gives him the fit of the religion, for law, which is good for the slaves, it gives him or her, and understanding a deep understanding of the religion. And he also said, when a lot of the Most High wishes mercy for a nation, he takes its profits, life before that of the nation, when he wishes destruction for a nation, he punishes it, while the Prophet is still alive.

00:41:50--> 00:41:53

So all of these various

00:41:54--> 00:42:02

Hadees, they all addressed the issue of a laws will, right. And

00:42:05--> 00:42:11

when we speak about our laws will we're talking about the this is the third level of the color, isn't it?

00:42:13--> 00:42:29

The third level of covered the first level was a laws, knowledge, second level was the writing. Right? The third level is a laws will, that the laws will is

00:42:31--> 00:42:35

all pervading, there's nothing that can stop his will.

00:42:36--> 00:42:46

Right? Whatever Allah wills in this universe will take place, whatever, he doesn't will, will not take place.

00:42:47--> 00:42:50

And wherever it didn't take place,

00:42:51--> 00:42:53

was not his will to take place.

00:42:54--> 00:43:01

It didn't take place because it wasn't his role to protect place not because he was unable to make it take place.

00:43:06--> 00:43:38

Important point when it comes to speaking of the will of Allah. So, this represents the third area and of course, when we go into this, there are certain other implementation implications that come with it, when we talk about the will of Allah and usually will is spoken about the same time as wish these are used interchangeable, interchangeably, allows will and his wish, the scholars have divided this into two categories.

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

One they call his creational will

00:43:45--> 00:43:50

and the other one they call his legal will, or his legal wish,

00:43:52--> 00:44:15

his creational will and his legal will, his creational wish and his legal wish creational wish is what nobody has any choice in the matter what happens happens a law has already set these things in motion, this is his creational wish.

00:44:17--> 00:44:20

Things that are beyond our control completely.

00:44:21--> 00:44:23

That is creational wish.

00:44:25--> 00:44:35

Falling of rain, the growing of plants, the turning of the earth and all the different things that in the creation around us the way a child is born.

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

You know, that it goes through the sperm and the ovum and the fetus, the development that it goes through the stages that it comes out, you know,

00:44:49--> 00:44:55

it could have been in some other way. But that's not the wish of Allah he wished that it happens this way.

00:44:57--> 00:45:00

And it's not for us to ask why this way and I don't know

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

No, as long as wish, that's it, no issue, no choices involved in the matter.

00:45:07--> 00:45:28

Now, when we talk about the laws, legal wish, or is legal will, this is what a law has prescribed for us. He said, do this, don't do this, it's better that you do this is better, you don't do this, these things does matter, you do it or you don't do it.

00:45:31--> 00:45:31


00:45:33--> 00:45:46

Better that you do it better, you don't do it. That's what we call Mr. hub, or Santa and moku. They do it better, you don't do it.

00:45:47--> 00:46:00

You must do this, you should do this. That's your wajib. You shouldn't do this. Forbidden free to do this, you're Haram. And what you may do or may not do.

00:46:01--> 00:46:21

That's what we call a MOBA. There is no harm in doing or not doing. But even in the area, which we may or may not do, we can turn that area to our advantage. If we do it with the right intention, right intention can change the MOBA into Mr. hub.

00:46:23--> 00:46:31

intention can change the MOBA into Mr. hub, or into mcru. Or it could even be Haram.

00:46:33--> 00:46:36

With the wrong intentions. So for example,

00:46:38--> 00:47:12

you eat your meal, eating food, this is by you a chicken you eat, you know, fish, you eat whatever you eat small by no reward for eating fish instead of eating chicken. But if you chose to eat food, and you said, I'm eating this food with the intention, that I strengthen myself to be able to worship a lot better. So I choose good food, not just because I want to have a healthy body, I want to look attractive, you know, muscles, and

00:47:13--> 00:47:25

I'm getting the food, good food, because I want to strengthen myself have the strength to worship a lot, then that becomes Mr. hub, and I'm rewarded for it.

00:47:28--> 00:47:55

So we're speaking this, this section which had to do with the will of a law, right, the evidence that the will of a law, belief in the laws will our laws, all pervading will there is nothing which exists in this universe which is not in accordance with his will. This is linked to the issue of

00:47:56--> 00:47:57


00:47:59--> 00:48:03

the writing is in accordance with his will.

00:48:04--> 00:48:07

It's based on his knowledge.

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


00:48:11--> 00:48:16

It is manifest in the writing, and it is in accordance with his will.

00:48:18--> 00:48:21

So what is recorded, whether good or evil is

00:48:23--> 00:48:43

according to His will, what he has permitted. And that's why the heydays when Ross Allen said, you know that you should believe when he's asked about the pillars of Eman of he said, You should believe in other heavy machinery, the good of it, and the evil of it.

00:48:44--> 00:48:55

Because in our laws will both good and evil is taking place in accordance with laws will. But then we're gonna look at ChildLine. The

00:48:57--> 00:49:27

next section, we'll be looking at how it is that Allah will will evil. If he has control over everything, then why is there evil? We'll look into the issue of evil and the will of Allah. This is the next question is coming up going to that element. For now inshallah we'll stop here and continue after the

00:49:28--> 00:49:36

18th I'll be going in sha Allah and Hajj is Wednesday, and I'll be coming back on the 18th.

00:49:38--> 00:49:39


00:49:40--> 00:49:47

yeah, the 20 20th is a Friday, right?

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

Yeah, so it start the week after Yes, the week after my return.

00:49:56--> 00:49:59

Yeah, so it started back on the 27th

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

Friday for the tafsir and the 28th for Al Qaeda in shaba.

00:50:09--> 00:50:10

Any questions

00:50:17--> 00:50:42

about this question? If we're sleeping and we missed fudger prayer, can we pray to when we get up? Well, this is what the prophet SAW Selim said you must do. If you have overslept, fudger or any prayer, you forgotten about the prayer, then you pray it when you wake up. Or when you remember, as long as the time that you remember a wake up is not while the sun is rising,

00:50:43--> 00:50:56

or while it is setting or when it is in the meridian is a three forbidden times. The harbor said we didn't even use to bury our dead at this times.

00:51:03--> 00:51:22

question do you pray the Tucson is you pray the Tucson now also you miss them, you pray them? I mean, do you have to We Don't you can, you can't say you have to because it wasn't have to even in the first place, right the tusen as a father or not have to they are highly recommended and rewarded, but not have to.

00:51:24--> 00:51:26

Okay, from the sister side,

00:51:27--> 00:51:40

the name for the creational will and the legal will in Arabic creational will is called an errata and konia, oral mushy eichhornia and the

00:51:41--> 00:51:49

legal will or legal wishes called Anuradha Sharia or Shia Sharia

00:51:51--> 00:52:07

the other day, which was asked about Yama, cannibal, kulu sambit calbee Allah denecke This is the dual of the prophet SAW salam, which he used to say very often. Yeah, mukalla balko lube,

00:52:08--> 00:52:19

fab bit calbee Allah de Nick, oh, flipper of hearts or change of hearts, steady my heart, on your religion.

00:52:21--> 00:52:34

It was also requested that I mentioned something about the 10 days of the ledger, which will be starting, possibly tomorrow

00:52:35--> 00:53:23

that these promises Allah made said, you know, are the best days in which to do righteous deeds. Some people take it as days in which you should fast Well, that's a righteous deed. But it doesn't necessarily mean you should fast in those 10 days, right? Of course, the 10th day you can't anyway, right? Because that's aid, you can't do it. But if you wish to fast in that time, more than you normally would fast and it's good, it's a good deed you're rewarded for giving charity in that period is also additional reward. Making additional prayers during that period, there's additional reward for it, I mean, any good deed that you can think of, you know, that you should be doing you

00:53:23--> 00:53:54

told yourself you want to do whatever you know, this is a good time for you to, to do it because there are a special reward that is multiplied in this period of time and that is how you know Allah has given us this is where we talked about allows grace, you know, getting us into paradise that he has set certain times a month in the year when good deeds are multiplied Ramadan, you know, a day a night, a little cuddle

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

a place Mecca, Medina, Master locks are

00:54:02--> 00:54:27

10 days, we have the first 10 days of the ledger. And this is what he has given us. So many other additional opportunities for us to multiply our good deeds to erase our sins in our evil deeds we should try our best to take advantage This is a mercy and grace from Allah subhanaw taala and of course with the EAD, we have the slaughter

00:54:28--> 00:54:34

of an animal either lot ha which I think you from India and Pakistan you call it Kobani I think

00:54:36--> 00:54:59

that this is something maybe I think in your culture, you take it as something you must do. Of course again, it's something that is recommended for you to do. I mean, you don't put your family in distress to do it right it's a people I think from some cultures is looked at as being such a serious thing that you must do. When you will take money which is you know allotted for your food, your God limited amount of money which is for your family.

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

Gonna take him because you have to do that Qurbani right? But no, actually it is strongly recommended. If you can't, you know, it's not, you're not able you get rewarded for the intention of wanting to do it, you know?

00:55:24--> 00:55:37

Well, brothers mentioned that perhaps is the people who gives the car normally, they're the ones who need to do the cavani you know, well, it is recommended for them and for anybody who is able, because you may be a receiver of the car.

00:55:39--> 00:55:56
