hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Karim, Allah Allah was Hobie, the Minister and the recently to Medina
appraise due to alarm, the last piece of lessons when the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day,
we are proceeding to question 150
after completion of the third level of belief in Qatar, which was
certain level of belief in color, which was what
had belief in the will wish, or we'll have a loss, my first novel was belief in
the completeness of knowledge, second level, belief in the recording of that knowledge, third level, belief in the laws will completeness of Israel and we looked at the two aspects of his will, and there it was his legal will or whether it was his creational will I,
in this section, now, we go to the fourth level, which has to do with creation, the question, what is the proof for the fourth level of belief in Qatar, which is the level of creation.
The author hakomi says a lot of the Most High said
along with aloha Hanukkah cliche, wahala cliche in Surah zamar
Ally's, the creator of all things, and is the Guardian overall.
This covers all elements of creation, everything
is everything besides the last one to Allah
is created is his creation. And as he said, He's the Creator of all things.
The second evidence, a lot of most high, said, human Harlequin
ministry Minister, Mr. Cloud, is there any creator other than a law who provides for you from the sky and the earth, sort of Fatah verse three.
The third evidence
addresses the second evidence addresses
every benefit that we take from this world has been created by a loss Madonna. So it being his creation means that he can determine when it is to come, and when it is not to come.
a lot of most high said and swannack man had the law he for our Rooney mother Hanukkah, Nadine dooney. This is the creation of a law. So show me that which those besides him have created.
there exists anything
which is outside of our laws, creation is false.
Those who are given abilities
which are outside of laws, creation, meaning, as for example, the Zoroastrians who
have attributed evil to Satan,
that Satan creates evil
meaning that they don't want to attribute evil to Allah and Allah. So, they have
identified something in creation which is outside of allows creation. So obviously their concept of a law
Whereas the Islamic concept is that everything besides a law is his creation.
A lot of the Most High said the fourth example, allow him to do Hanako come from Morocco come from where you need to come from where your
Halloween Shoraka equal may
come in, say, allies he who created you then provided food for you and cause you to die, and He will give you life is there any of your partners, our law that do anything of that sort of rule verse 40.
the fifth evidence
from Surah Sol 596.
While ohakune palmata Malone, Allah has created you and what you do.
So this is even more specific, in that it takes into account the actions of people, people and their deeds are no different from any other creative thing when it comes to predestination when it comes to color.
Allah already knows what he will create through the actions of his slaves, and he knows what they will do. He has already written all of that in the Lord.
Allah created them as He willed, and his decree concerning them will be fulfilled. They will act in accordance with the will of a law. Those who realize decreed will be blessed will be guided. And those who decreed will be doomed, they'll go astray.
So a lot created not only ourselves, but even the actions that we actually to ourselves. Ultimately, they are part and parcel of the last creation. A lot of the most I also said, I've seen one master wha Ha, ha ha ha foodora, taqwa and so, and him who portioned it, proportion it, then showed it what corrupts it and what makes it righteous.
Our knowledge of good and evil, which is within our souls, this was placed there by Allah.
law the most hi also said my
favilla a common cause
in swala guides, he is the guided one and whomsoever He sends astray, and those are the losers
guidance in terms of what is created. This is this is included within the realm of creation.
So, even the issue of guidance though it is choices is a part of the choices
that we make, etc.
It's still considered to be
a part of molars creation
Furthermore, how can he brings another verse from swach Bharat last service verses which are eminence? Well I can Allah have Baba in a coup de man was a Anna houfy Polycom or Cara la cual Kufa, one Suzuka, one ASEAN
Alliance endeared face faith to you,
and beautified it in your hearts and he has made this belief wickedness and disobedience hateful to you.
So this is going right inside of the individual. What goes on within him and talking about allows workings within the individual themselves. In terms of evidences and in
the office said and there are many other verses kind of say meaning meaning. He then quotes a couple of hadiths to support it.
ohare reported in his treatise entitled Hulk a family bad the actions of creatures are created from Hooray for the past, as Alan said, in the law, Holly kukula, Shere Khan lasagna in for sanata who are created every door and his action
was asylum it also said Allah give my soul piety and purified in the best of those who purify truly you are its owner and protector.
In terms of the guidance, if you went back to the verse 178 from Swan Ross, Miyagi level for World War Teddy Amaya
nailfold komunikasi rune, Whosoever law guides, he is the guide in one whomsoever He sends us trade. And those are the losers. There are some further Hadees, which address this issue, the live and he reported that the prophet SAW Selim had said, indeed a lot of creative people in darkness, and he cast his light upon them. Anyone who was hit by that light will be guided to anyone who was missed will be misguided. Because of this, I say, the pen is dry in regards to a loss knowledge, statement of the process alone. Indeed, a lot of creative people in darkness, then he cast his light upon them. Anyone who was hit by that light will be guided to anyone who was missed will be misguided.
Because of this, I say the pen is dry in regard to a laws knowledge.
this Hadees should not be taken
to me in that it is just an accident. While we are guided, if you happen to be hit by the light, you're guiding if you weren't hit, you know, you're not guided when the Hadees is saying that, but
this is this is based on the laws knowledge of the individual, those who are worthy of his light will be hit by his lights. Those who are not worthy of it will not be it's not arbitrary, because Allah has not created anything in sports. And without
reason and haphazard, accidental manner. This is not our law creates grace with wisdom. So
Allah is most wise and infinite, he just, he would not leave it as an accident to determine whether you're going to be guided or not.
The second Hadith
from Abu Salah Shadi, he quoted as saying, Indeed, Allah created Adam from one handful that he picked up from all over the earth. That's Adams offspring, Cain according to the earth, among them, the red, the white, and complexion, the light complexion, the black, and those in between. And among them were those who would be easygoing, and those will be sad, those will be corrupt, and those would be good, and those in between.
addresses the origin of human physical differences, as well as human inclinations.
But we should again, note that the law then tests each individual in an appropriate way, no one is tested beyond his or her capacity for allies most just an infinitely wise, so low.
Each and every one of us has inclinations, which differ.
Some people, they don't have that much of an inclination, for example, to want to steal.
Or some people may have more of an inclination.
You know, some people may have more of an inclination to be faithful and
other people have more information to
adultery, and fornication, and so on and so forth. I mean, all of the major cities in the US Army will get angry more easily, that's their nature. And that leads them towards murder and other kinds of things, and other people are more common sense.
So, there are certain elements of our character which we are created with, that has to do with the origin of our creation from what elements of the earth are created. So somebody say them, you know, this seems to support some of the claims of the West, that, you know, our inclinations are biological, so we can't really blame people.
Right, especially for the homosexuals in this the big claim, right? We are born that way.
These are our inclinations by nature. But we say no,
you still made a choice. You might have had an inclination. You might have had a desire, you might have had a leaning all these factors may be there. But it is not something beyond your ability to say no.
That's the whole point. So a lot of tests each individual according to the level of an
inclinations. And this is where the Justice lies, because what am I told somebody had homosexual integrations, other people didn't have it. And then there's this big punishment form of sexuality. You know, it seems kind of unfair that this person had those relations. Now, what happens is that for that person, he gets his set of tests, and for the other person, they get their set of tests. So the tests that people get in their lives are tailored to each person's own inclinations and nature,
as the whole thing, that the test of this life is tailored for each and every individual,
that is the greatest of all, I mean, that kind of complexity of tests is mind boggling, and each and every creature has its own depth, but that is the greatness of alas rantala.
The last few days
and after which the
author said there are many other similar narrations
which speak about
a lot of creating
or a lot laws, hand in human actions.
This addresses the overall issue of
which the most important aspect that we need to look at in this particular question is the actions of a law and the actions of his creatures.
The actions of a law
are true and real.
they conform to what is entailed by his names and his attributes.
They influence all of creation in accordance with his will, his knowledge and his ability.
This labor law has real ability, will, choice and action
are human beings ability to move and to believe our actions that are truly attributed to him.
These actions are created by a law or human beings movement, standing, sitting, and so on are real actions which are law decreed, set under his ability,
willed and created for them.
The will and action of human beings follow those of a law or we can say they are subject to those of Allah.
This is the course of the Salah. This is the way of understanding held by the Salah.
We use the term Salah, we're talking about the early generation of righteous Muslim scholars following the way of the first three generations
about whom the rasa Sallam said the best of generations are my or is my generation than those who follow them than those who follow them as the Sahaba tada in those first few generations. And we insist on this principle, beyond the issue of the Quran and the Sunnah in order to preserve the correct understanding of the Quran, and
that's something that we shouldn't forget something that we should always keep in mind and refer back to
grammar and soon everybody agrees on that, how do we understand the grammar?
This is where the differences come.
So by saying we stick to that understanding held by that those first few generations who are closest to the revelation, what are the best insight to appraise buy problems and sell them in that way, we preserve the correct understanding and protect our faith from deviation.
is basically between two extremes
and they represent two groups
that deviated in the past.
The first group claimed the predestination deprives human beings of their ability to choose.
According to this claim, human beings have no will
No real actions. They're like feathers in the wind
sticks in history and
their actions only appear to be there.
But they're not theirs is where they are laws actions.
This group is known as in Arabic algebra.
In English, we call them the job rights, job rights from jabber, which means to be to compel, or to force.
And they represent followers of Mohammed bin Salman one is the first person in the Muslim world to make this claim.
So they're also referred to as the gibeonites. After this individuals named john
secondary group, they're known as the other or the copyrights.
They totally denied other
and claim that human beings create their own actions by their own ability and their own will.
In effect, this belief makes human beings creators besides the law
Consequently, the prophet SAW Selim referred to them as the Zoroastrians of this nation.
He called them the Zoroastrians of this nation, my Jews had the hill oma.
And this is because the father's rations claimed that Satan created evil.
Someone besides a law, who was involved in the process of creation of the lion armor related to the process, lm said
the caller ID
or the magens are the modules of this nation, if they become LD, visit them when they die, do not attend their funerals
and is authenticated
cloud cover is basically the evidence evidence is for the fourth level
belief in the level of creation.
Before we go on, is there any question concerning those evidences? What is meant by the level of creation?
In some of these evidences are secondary evidence,
that seems to be more evidence for
Well, by this question, are some of the evidence is secondary evidence isn't some of primary evidences.
Basically, some of the evidences are obvious evidences and some are not as obvious.
Though the example you gave for for raw guides is guided
is an evidence for the creation of guidance within the individual. On one hand, yes, it is also evidence for laws will,
but it's also evidence for creation, because creation takes place in accordance with the laws will and remember, ultimately, all four levels are descriptions of one
thing, right, which is other. So the overlapping is natural,
the overlapping will be natural. So the issue of guidance goes into the individual and his actions.
Some of them speak about creation in general.
There the provision within creation that we take
the human being and his actions, and those ones which appear more secondary really are addressing elements of human actions, whether there are physical actions or in terms of the actual deeds, external deeds, or the spiritual actions, which are in terms of their internal deeds for the question.
Okay, question 152
which relates to the issue of a law being the creator of everything.
What is meant by the prophet SAW Selim statement all good is in your hands and evil is not attributable to you
When a law is the creator of everything,
the statement or good is in your hands and even is not attributed to you as a part of a lengthy Hadith, and is found in Sahih Muslim narrated by Allah subhanaw taala.
It's authentic naturally.
he explained, how can you explain the meaning is that all actions of a law are purely good by way of his attribution to them, or can say by way of its attribution to him.
And they're emanating from him.
They have no relation to evil.
For he the Most High is most wise, most just, and all his actions contain wisdom and justice, he puts everything in the place is suitable for them, as is known to him, the one free from all imperfections the Most High. Thus, whatever evil is in the ordained moment.
It would be from the perspective of its attribution to the slave due to the destruction which might affect him as a result of what he has earned himself in just and full measure.
A lot of the Most High said masaba coming, we'll see but in for me my cursor, but Id comb for Yahoo and cateel
whatever misfortune befalls you, it is because of what your hands have earned, and he pardons much.
So the author
is addressing the issue
of a laws actions being fundamentally good.
from his perspective, it is all good. There is no evil in it.
From the perspective of the creatures,
there may be evil
with regards to their personal suffering as a result of what he has decreed.
Right, it's relative, and we spoke about that before pain, and we discussed about pain, and how it is something evil relative to the individual. But on a particular level, but then another level, it's something good to know when he's when he's hurt, you know, that he needs to get treated.
So it has a purpose, it has a good purpose, though it may contain suffering.
And in any case, whatever suffering human beings
endure or are afflicted with, Allah already said that this is a result of what we have done.
So one cannot then blame a law and say, Why me? The question is, if it doesn't happen, why not? You?
Are, of course the issue comes when we deal with those who are innocent. Those who we perceive as innocent, a child suffers.
What is it done?
How do we explain that?
And this is where
people then want to say they couldn't be a God because there's no justice here. There's no fairness here.
A child is without sin. Why should it suffer?
But again, as we said,
the future when we looked at the child, for the child who was killed,
others were protected from the harm of that child.
Of course, what happens to that child is another issue
that scholars have pointed out that the child would be included among those who are brought back
and given a choice.
The fact that the child was killed, to protect it from the from the evil that they would have done to those people is indicative that it will make the wrong choice when it is brought back. But in the fulfillment of our laws justice, as a law said in the grind room, I couldn't Mr. Divina, Hatton abasolo. Sula, I will not punish anyone until the messengers come to
meaning come to them when you are mature and capable of making a choice, it would be brought back along with the others. And given the choice.
The other evidence
which the author brings from our alumna whom
Allah I can caralluma volley moon alameen
I did not run them instead, they were the wrongdoers. Allah did no wrong, God does no wrong to any human being.
Human beings are the ones who do wrong.
the last evidence to our universe.
In the lie of liberal NASA,
well, I can and NASA and fusa, whom
truly the law does not wrong humankind in any way instead of humankind,
So, this goes back, as we said, to the issue of
nothing being 100%, evil,
whatever laws created, has an element of good in it, which is the purpose of its creation,
not the evil, which is relative to the circumstance in which it occurs.
One may argue that
there is still a relationship between the good and the evil, evil is still something that has been for ordain and created.
This is true.
But in this respect,
the thing is not evil.
Certainly existed, its existence is attributed to a law. But from that point of view, it is not evil.
It is evil because he has not made it good or conducive to anything good.
This deprivation of goodness is not the thing that one may ascribe to a law
who has every good in his hands.
This is addressing the issue. We said before of
the basic nature of things being good, in the wrong place. They
are what appears to us to be the wrong place, they appear to be harmful etc. and evil.
in the right place, they're obviously good. But the reality is that the thing itself
is not evil. It's just where it ends up.
We spoke about that before, like a knife. A knife used to put your butter on your bread is a knife used by a murderer to stab somebody in their art is evil, you know, but the knife itself wasn't good or evil, the knife was good. It was something fundamentally good. Part of a last question is fundamentally good, how it is being used. Now, as it turns it into evil.
It should be noted that good has three causes
creation coloque. preparation, dad and promotion in that
to create something is good.
And that is for law alone.
Similarly, preparing something
for something else, and promoting it is also good.
When there is no preparation or promotion, evil comes about
the absence is not something attributed to Allah.
He just does the opposite.
creation in and of itself to create something good.
Some people ask the question, why did God create me in the first place?
Why didn't he just not create me? So I wouldn't have to deal with issues of health.
Some issues that people arise, raised, you know, the bottom line is that
either your creation was a good thing, or wasn't a good thing, fundamentally.
as we look at
things in the world in general, creation is good.
The creation, whatever people create.
These things are good everything, everything that we can appreciate.
Now people might abuse them.
You might use them in the wrong way and turn out to be bad.
But the actual act of creating something
why do you choose
but when asked why a large enough
when you lay it
when you go
You have made some preparations
I'm in the middle
salatu salam ala rasulillah
Okay, so question 152
as you said, all good is in your hands and knees was not attributable to you.
This addresses the issue of
and good in allows creation
that everything which allow creators ultimately Good
and Evil is only relative.
And in any case evil itself is nothing
but the absence of good does not have an existence in and of itself to say it was created, but it is the absence of good.
So even from both perspectives, we don't really attribute evil to Allah subhanaw taala
We said that whatever he creates,
having an element of good to it being the purpose of his creation,
and that the evil which may be relative to his creation,
has less harm than the good which Allah intended to bring about, which is why he went ahead with that thing. And this is how we're supposed to function in general, where we see something who's evil is greater than its good,
then we leave that
the good there is no longer desirable.
For something's good is greater than its evil.
We can do this, something desirable, which may be done.
And the Sharia
looks at a variety of its principles on this basis. If we just looked briefly at alcohol, we said, there is good in it, people benefit from it, the law says is good.
But the harm from it far outweighs the good sides. permitted.
plural marriage, polygamy, there is imminent evil from the perspective of women involved. The first wife
is most often
dissatisfied, this upset, doesn't like it. She may accept it theoretically, because Islam says it's permissible. But she doesn't like it in her heart. There's harm here and there's hurt, she suffers.
But the good which comes to the society as a whole from it
outweighs the evil which comes to the individuals maybe to the to her or sometimes to her children or whatever. And some big mysel case and they live in the music.
You know, you have some people who abuse polygamy.
But still, you have people who abuse monogamy.
So we can argue that something simply because it's abused, we say, well, we don't want to rule this out because the news No. So when the good outweighs the evil, and we find that the Sharia supports it, promotes it, etc.
Okay, we'll stop here. And
Question number 153.
For 155 completes the
What I will try to do in the next
give you some sample questions of
test on the material that we'll
have, hopefully by the last class, all the material will be ready for you to study from or print it up and get it in your hands of the senate easier than the soil gas. For those of you who are still waiting for swamp gas.
This is a shorter amount of material, the course has been only a few months. So inshallah this will be ready without any problems.
Can you any questions on the conquest the number 152.
The question is
this which talks about
the ordering in a band tonight with the lead up to the Day of Judgment.
Is there any reason why it's
fabulous question back to the
the decree or the eternal decree
or the rosily
where Allah has commanded the
pen to write everything that was and would be up until the final hour.
But this question, is there any reason why it was limited to the final hour?
Personally, I can't think of anything.
This is what the law says is what a law had instructed
