Jumuah – 18th May 2012
If you take one plus one It takes two. So if a presentation only confirms with the Quran the Quran is a revelation from Allah so what is wrong with it? But that is the application of your reason and you can't apply your reason to the deen of Allah.
Because I said Allah said if you apply your re Why
can you not apply reason to the Dean of allows
a de Nubira
mm segnale kurama larger see if the Dean of Allah was based on your opinion and my opinion,
and your intellect and my intellect and your knowledge and my knowledge. Like I
can't remember the last word of Hadith. He says if your reason if you had to apply your reason to the dean, then
it would have been better for you to rub the bottom of your leather sock rather than the top of the leather sock. But what is the dean said? We must not you must drop the top
because the bottom is 13 off the top of
the dish. That is but you cannot apply a reason why not? Because there is a commandment of Mohammed Salim he said, if you take hold on, you're waiting the latest software has arrived on top of it not at the bottom.
So it's important for us to understand that the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when you convey the message to the people, he was commanded not of his choice, he was commanded to convey the message in its entirety. Without additions, and deletions. No deletions, no additions, no deletions.
Now I want you to understand this very clearly. The very important point
that everything about the deen of Allah subhanaw taala.
The Prophet was Barsoom masu means
he made no mistakes. He left everything out for some people today say yeah, maybe I did and things you left out and so forth. And so I'm not gonna go there.
Those people of course, all want to be prophets in their own sense. But so we won't go there. We'll confine ourselves to the truth. And the Quran and Sunnah.
If you want to add to this DNA to problem
but this one thing is very important. He was also a human being.
He was a prophet of Allah, Revelation. But he was a father. He was a grandfather was a warrior. He was the leader of the battle, and he was a human being. Now in human terms,
there were certain things which instructed which the Sahaba said, you know, the Battle of buzzer he said, Let's come here once a heartbeat No, no, no, don't can be asked on good go behind the wall and accepted.
So there is a advice was not the right advice. When it came to Medina,
he saw that the farmers of Medina, the Date Farmers, they were pollinating the date palm trees with their hands, you know, they,
the bees pollinate the flowers. So the Adams is very clever. They say, well, let's speed up the process. They became very scientific and progressive. And they did it with a heads. And the prophet SAW this and he looked at it and he said, Why do you do that? You know, he was Leave it, you know, allows founder will give you crops. And then the the court failed. They said, well, the property we shouldn't do it. So they came back to me some city gave us advice in another corpus Torres in Lhasa. He said, Yeah, I shouldn't have accepted him advice. I'm not a farmer, you know?
I mean, I'm not a farmer. I'm sorry, you know?
So yes, there were many instances where the companions also
that's why the Navy Salama Stovall was founded washa
washa were home, Phil Ammar and consulted in matters of dunya.
consulting in medicine,
in matters of dunya
he was a human being, but in matters of Deen.
He was the final arbiter, the final judge in everything. And alfonzo tells us if you don't accept him as the final judge.
Then you out of the folder slip out of the Dean of out of the middle of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
So now we have revelation.
And without revelation without why
men becomes an extremely dangerous press.
I'll give you an example how, how dangerous we become when we say the revelation aside, and we leave our lives to be directed by our intellect and our reason.
Because you must understand this intellectual secret massive power
You see it in the medical field. You see it in the computer field you see it in all the you see the massive power of the human intellect, faculty dinner Razi, the great professor, interpreter of the Quran.
Interpret the verse of surah to know
sort of 24 verse 35, who allows Allah says, Noren Allah no yahudi illa de Masha, Allah says, light upon light.
He guides to his light whom he world's
fascinating Eros. He says, this neuron Allah nude, light upon light means revelation upon the heart of Muhammad Allah
or revelation upon the occurrence of Muhammad Sallallahu taala.
So the intellect
was the receptacle of the revelation of Muhammad Rasul of Allah subhanaw taala.
Because Allah chose the mind, the intellect to receive
the divine message,
on demand and commands, that we use this intellect
in order to understand the Divine Mercy
of Allah yet at the Baroda, Quran, Allah says, do the note, think about
do not contemplate.
If we look at the waist,
look at the waist. And we live in western countries. So when I say look at the waist, you have to look under the window and look over the ocean. And look at America.
Now the waist is right here. You walk out of the masjid you walk into the waist.
So the West
the phenomenal scientific and material progress we see around us.
Yes, it is because of the free use of intellect and reason.
Through open universe, those are the universities through open the laboratories. And here we are today. We have cell phones, we have so many things that we can't even imagine what we have. Some of us don't even know what we have
until our children has it. And then we look at it and we say no, this is too complicated for us. And the father comes along and he says poverty is a tick, tick, tick, tick. And he says the aid works.
So and at the same time.
So what is brought about all this scientific development, only to want you to go with the flow with me with the argument. It was the intellect and the reason of west of peace as well, but mainly the West.
So what are the ways do when they succeed technologically.
They wanted to use the same to the mind the intellect and reason on moral and religious issues.
And that caused the same phenomenal moral degradation in the West.
I will repeat that.
The West use the intellect and reason for technological development. They said while we use our intellect, you know, look at look what we've done to the world. Look where the world is today. So we'll use the same intellect the same reason and will apply to moral and religious issues as well. And what happened.
What we see today,
the mistake of the worst is he wants to use the same tool for different purposes.
You can't do that. You can't use the scale you use to weigh gold.
And use the same scale to use to weigh iron and steel doesn't work.
You can't you can't use a five pound hammer to repair a watch. You'll destroy it, you need a special kind of tool.
you can use the mind and the intellect also for moral issues and religious issues. That tool works fine for technological developments and civic progress.
But there are different tools to use.
When we learn about the world, and different tools to use, when we learn about ourselves, I mean people can't for example,
Always make up your mind, what is the purpose of life, some say the purpose of life is to make money.
As I say, the purpose of life is to be narcissistic, to gain pleasure out of life, as I say, the purpose of life is to be happy, as I say, the purpose of life. And so, they go on and on and on.
Why is it so, because each one of us has a different intellect,
and a different way of reasoning.
when there is mixed with our emotions, which you also have, we have already scored, I like this.
And I like that, and the other ones is, and I like that, and I like this.
So, in a plan your mind you cannot apply your mind to, for example, to ask what is right and what is wrong.
Because these things, what is right and what is required knowledge, which is beyond what we can see with our senses or feel with our senses, and what we can reason with our minds.
Because what we will do is, we will justify our desires, I mean today.
Just lately, I think last week, President Obama
said that he agrees with same sex marriages
is nothing new to our cost of government and our parliament, as it passed laws, you know, to, for people to get married.
But it's a contradiction in our society having that society which is the same Western society, and that is that the majority of people in this country in the majority of people everywhere had was homosexuality.
They frowned upon, they look down upon it, some people condemn it. They know it's an abomination. No, it's an evil.
Yet today same sex marriages in this country's legal
people speak about their partners.
And the race is helpless to stop it even Obama's gonna go with a fluency while also green hours with same sex marriages. Why?
Because based on reason, you cannot fault it.
Because based on your human reason, people have a free choice if a man wants to go live with a man who can stop them, I mean, the nice people the good people, they have jobs and look after the children well, you know the problem does is they love each other to women living together well, in terms of the terms of your mind what your mind does, which seems to be fine.
This happens when the reason becomes the arbiter of right and wrong.
Now this is not new in history.
Whenever man has said revelation aside this happens I want to give you an incident of a guy by the name I'm not saying I just say a guy guy he's not a he's got a nice Arabic sounding name or a doula like all of them obey the law hasn't cleared when he was his name, nice name. If somebody comes to you with such a good name, you say Mashallah, you know, again a flex in front of you, and man's got such a beautiful name, or they don't love me so and so. And so and so. And so and so. And if it goes right up to you know, then really I mean
so this man was the leader of what is called a bar thing he said, this is interesting information.
Martini what is a botany martinis was about in his the she as part of the body declared. What is barking? What is barking? We mean botany means people who apply the reason to their faith inside of themselves. So the new series or Iraq in Syria, they call their a botany sect, the smilies is there another bath in e6? Now what does it mean to be botany? The Druze cruises of Lebanon, also botanists, they do say this, for example of Syria. They say that you don't have to go for Hajj physically. You can sit in your Lodge, close your eyes, or the ninth days of the ninth day of the month of March. And you can throw out the beta logo too out of throw, throw the JAMA rods and you
you Raj finish.
These Miley's say that they are a handy leader the other hand, very rich community.
He drinks and he Gamble's and he fornicating he does all kinds of things. And he's like a prophet.
So you asked me I knew how honey Pakistanis made the base of Moses. By the way.
I need this big photo hanging on his wall. I said, You know,
I sit back and main drinks, sit on Oprah, you don't understand. You see when he drinks when it comes to serve dense water.
Now you love my people today believe in this community of people that believe there are people who could actually do this kind of, they have this kind of powers.
So these are the balconies.
A lot of the Sufi sects are also about in this
example. Now the example I give examples of my own personal experience, I was in Pakistan, as you know, I studied they lived there for three years. So I have quite a good idea of the first of the Pakistani cuisine, which we can talk about.
But there's a province in Pakistan called the NorthWest Frontier Province, you must have heard about another, you know, the warmth of honey sign is carrying on.
And a lot of Sufi groups. In fact, the whole of the northern part of Pakistan divided into different kinds of Sufi sects
because the Sufi master has a holding over the community. And one of the supersix this man actually came to visit me some of our one of our friends at university told me that he's there and interesting thing he said to me, he said, You know, these people, the people of that Sufi sect
it is low to the rule in that said that he has to sleep with every new bride for America.
But this is a very serious matter.
This is what is called spirituality gone absolutely wrong.
Cuz these people speak imminent about spiritual spirituality Baraka in America, this show will give you Barack Obama sleep with your daughter before she goes to her husband.
Why? Because Islam
when Islam doesn't speak about something,
when Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't practice something,
nor preach it.
And men comes along and uses this
to create something new that looks nice.
That sounds appealing.
But eventually show on yours, even the beginning Chicago back off, say wait, let them get into it. And once they get into it,
it's all it all goes forward and all goes wrong.
It has two
methods have been created by men has to go wrong.
The only Surat
that Allah speaks about is a Serato Misaki.
the bottom insect coming back to this man with his beautiful name, obey the law.
He was the leader of this particular sector. What did he say? What was his reasoning, his intellect? What did he tell him? He his intellect told him that it is foolish
for a brother
to marry his beautiful sister to a stranger
while he marries a nice appealing woman who's also a stranger.
Why should he not marry his own sister?
After they were lots of things in common, they won't fight, be nice to each other, say mother and father.
These are all things about spiritual and spiritual it goes wrong.
This is when man basis his beliefs on his reason and his intellect. He is that is a tool for scientific development. I've seen that as a tool for developing the world. But it is not a tool
to apply religious and moral values or to say what is right and what is wrong.
Men can use a superior tool for determining the values and purpose of life a sort of source of guidance that is certain because only that which comes from a loss mangalitsa
only then which comes from Allah can we strain our emotions and our desires? After this is what the prophets came with us. They came with a law
from France, from the one who created men,
and who sent the manual
why running 24,000 prophets to govern
the moral obligations and the life of this man.
And these prophets claimed to have the knowledge and the divine revelation. Now people are here malissa, salaam read.
Read Nabil Brahimi. I said last week, you know about people who say, I'm old school.
And I said, you know what old school, they Shafi school Hanafi school harmony school, Maliki school.
Which for school, or which old school is part of this deed? from? Where does that old school come from?
It's not an excuse. It's an insult to the dean, that you have created another school.
Read surah Maria Surah Maryam say, What does Allah say? 19 surah verse 44. Allah says now, he
must have been about 12 or 13 years old.
Say to his father,
my concern of idols.
What do we say today to our children uniform sad.
might also be different and say perform. And say pattern. Kalia, Viacom, Jason of Where do you come from now to me this
yeah, but he he Brian said, Oh, my father.
looked at me said oh my father, what did he say? In
He said, knowledge has come to me which has not come to you.
My father was Ali's father was odd. But lots of knowledge we didn't go to that came to me lots of knowledge which came to maybe went to them and didn't come to me. Nobody has a monopoly on knowledge.
For the sake of it, oh my father, I am well if you don't have
for me, follow me.
I will guide you.
So often, Surya say to his father, I will guide you on a straight path.
Based on what
was he arrogant? Did he tell his father he went to UCT and his father to interview WC
or didn't even make high school? No, he said, my knowledge is based on revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
If your son comes to you and he says I look around in USA
the Prophet You didn't say Oh, we got the revelation Allah we got the revelation we study it first. Okay, we let you know.
no reasoning applied no intellect
and we obeyed
because you cannot apply or reason to Deen instruction from Allah subhanaw taala. You can't say Well, you see, I love Salah.
I love to pray and love. So five times No, no, no, no, no, no.
too little for me. I cooperate. What's five times 10 minutes in the morning? 10 minutes was what? No, no, no, I will pray inshallah. 10 Tinder cause 10 times every day. I love it. So
it's like a man who goes to the doctor. And the doctor says, brother you got
you got high blood pressure. You have to take this tablet, once in the morning and once in the evening. So he goes home and he tells his wife, hey, the doctor gave me these must be good tablets. Maybe if I take five a day. back pressure will go away quicker.
He was as easy
every day. So it takes five tablets. What happens to me dice killed you.
has given us
five times a day you must make salad. That's it. Don't overdose.
Because there are other things which you have to do, like a manager must take the tablet and watch what he eats the Roku sisters and subwatersheds adults, it's a package. The Dean is a package is not only Salah
the many other things you have to do during the course of the day.
So some of
you cannot apply.
So people don't understand. I said he can make demands of me for me.
When I say something is needed
No part of the menu. What don't you understand? What part of began to understand what causes the Quran? Don't you understand? What don't you understand?
I'm sorry, I shouted, I'm sorry. Please forgive me.
I just realized I shouldn't raise my voice like receivers.
But you know, the promises that I'm used to be on the member on a Friday.
And Sahaba reported that he spoke, he shouted to suspects in terms that they thought that the army was on the borders of Medina, they're going to take any time.
And calamities will come down at that very moment.
Because that was the passion that
he knew. At the time. 23 years, he knew that his time was going to be up to give the message. The message was important. It wasn't important message was important.
Overall, our la kamasi
we say, y'all know we heard we'll be back.
No, no, no, no, no, no. We hear and we obey, Veronica, why? Because Veronica, only you can forgive.
We seek only your forgiveness. Yeah, Allah.
are we going? We were going la kamasi. We're going back to you Allah.
Nobody else is waiting for us to notice nobody else waiting for you. There's nobody waiting for you, only
So if you have made an appointment with somebody else in the era, that person is not going to be there. I can tell you why.
You can look around.
Then when you see me, standing in the same line if we use standing
we're talking about the intellect, application of the intellect and reason on commands of Allah.
The first creation of Allah uses intellect and reason on a command of a law. He was called a bliss.
he uses reason, he made an analogy.
What is called in Arabic in the law class.
Like many of our people
who create all these things around the deen, they say you see there's a hadith and if you take the Hadith and you make it as analogy, then this is good. And that's also good. You put the two goods together, it makes more good.
It's called Korea's Bothell.
you must have smiled when he said this because he thought he was clever. He said
Well, can you ask me to make sure you do this to this man? You created me from fire.
Clay, I'm better than him. So what is his reason? The intellectually fires better than clean fire can make a pot of food or you can whatever you can do with clay, what can you do? Give it to the kids to make models.
So he uses reason.
And the end of his reason was
in that case, I'm better than him. Because I'm better than him. Why should I make suit but he was a command from Allah. No, he knew the command. He said no, I must apply my He's my intellect I must apply here. This looks like a good thing to me. I have to do this because looks good.
Goodness is what Allah commands and is profit.
Remember what I'm saying?
You cannot apply and running
Due to the police, what was his end?
Lana, hola Allah cast him.
Yes, as I said, again, don't misunderstand me, my brothers and sisters, this is a very good tool to use for the, for the dounia.
earning your money, improving your skills,
improving technology and science and all that sort of thing.
But do not for one minute thing that you can decide what is good and what is bad. So the dilemma for the dilemma for the West is that
they see so much is wrong now.
But they cannot and will not admit to the problem. And the problem is that they refuse to submit to a higher power.
They refuse to submit to revelation from a loss.
And the Muslim has been given the blessing
to surrender before the higher source of knowledge and guidance, the Quran and Sunnah Muhammad Allah.
And remember what I'm saying today I'm going to speak about this because I'm gonna give a series of talks, because it is for the Muslim, the true slave of Allah.
Who is in fact,
because only revelation which informs your reason,
control your emotion.
And a person like that is placed by his belief is placed by his belief. Because he says, What is he it's easy to see saniana
we are LED we obey.
terms of d and we obey.
So we are a blessing nation.
Like the blessing relation
that the Sahaba will
never tell you some of the ladies
of the Navy saw some one day the Navy Salam said
I just added this honey this morning. So I haven't memorized the Arabic
but it's part of the seed of certain najem which are coated in the beginning, which allows for harnesses
in who are Illa what you knew, that God Mohammed speaks is nothing but a revelation from Allah Hunter. So he's worth a certain other Hadith was also inspired by Allah subhanaw taala. So what is an evisa salam, Zetas haba
there is a crowd
who will go to Geneva
by the intercession of one man and that man is not a prophet.
prophecy? No, the two tribes sorry.
Mother, I think is another child's name and another tribe. Two tribes will enter Paradise with the intercession of a man who is not a prophet.
So one of the habits Indiana pseudo law, USA, you see two tribes, but actually the one tribe is a subtype of the other tribe.
So the prophecy akula
I say what I say.
What does he mean? He means is not what he said. He can't explain it. Because it was given to him by was wanted to say, so he's not going to add anything or deduct anything from it. That is how he was inspired to say it and that is how he said it. So hello. Well, my uncle Anil. However, he didn't speak from his own design. It's very important to understand as my dear brothers and are blessed we are to have the solid law, the solid law that has come to us via a solid iron chain of links it has never been broken since the Prophet spoke his words until today. Let me tell you after I've given the series of lectures no Quran will give a series of lectures also on on the Hadith, Fallout Allah
Allah Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
