You are listening to lesson 10

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

Surah T shoot Bishop, Dr. Hayes al Haddad Hatfield the hula brought to you by Islam 21 c.com.

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

Article articulating Islam in the 21st century, now human or human hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala, ala Ambia, it will mousseline the Vienna Muhammad sal Allahu Allahu Allah Allah he will be momentarily I will be sending it to Medina, let us continue that of zero Surah Surah And Alhamdulillah we have been talking about Surah Shula and that

00:00:42--> 00:01:38

nature of solar Assura and one time I told you that say Otto Rahim Allah Allah Allah said that you will feel when you read the Quran, when you read different chapters in the Quran, you feel that if each Surah has its own nature has its own personality, about Unha he said chastity Surah has its own personality and Subhanallah the more you become intimate with the Quran, the more you can feel this sort of tissue Europe has its uniquenesses okay, and you can say that each Surah has its II has each has its each uniquenesses. So, our tissue among its uniqueness is is that it tackled topics that have not been tackled or were not tackled or discussed in.

00:01:39--> 00:01:57

You can say an old the Quran, such as the principle of the shura, and we will mention that there is a fundamental difference between the ayah that is spoke about Assura here we're amerihome shoe Robina home and the other ayah that is mentioned in Surah.

00:02:01--> 00:02:53

Surah Al Imran when Allah Allah Allah says, Five one who must belong Masha will homefield armor. Yes, we're Shall we homefield armor, okay and consult them there is a difference between these two. Okay, we said that Sora tissue era, although it is a murky Surah but it discussed a number of the topics that normally are discussed in madonie sutras and maybe this is an assumption, this is a reflection, because it was among the latest sources to be revealed in Makkah, and it was preparing the Muslim community to to establish their own society, their own system, their own country in the Madani period, in the beginning, the surah started by glorifying Allah, Allah Allah. Then after that

00:02:53--> 00:03:28

Allah Allah Allah started to speak about Revelation, and we said the revelation is one of the main themes of the Surah Al Ye, or Calico hyena Ilica Quran and Allah be a little Malcorra woman hold our tongue there are humans in LA Buffy, very confident. Jannetty were very comfy say and we said that Subhanallah you know, some parts of the Quran you can see the whole the entire Quran, it depends on how you look at it, but certain parts of the Quran, you can stop and maybe you can spend

00:03:30--> 00:04:28

months is speaking about just one part of an idea of a small idea of a small chapter of the entire Quran. And this is the power of the Quran. And moreover, in certain in certain parts of the Quran, you see as if it is just laws given to you okay, not in terms of the laws that we we see but divine laws. For example, we see that those that mentioned that Allah, Allah Allah, okay, he sent it the Quran the Quran is a universal message. So it introduced to us the universality of the Quran, the universality of this message, this is a divine principle that the Quran is a universal message. Okay? When Allah Allah, Allah says, we're Catholic, our hyena in a Quran and our be a little

00:04:29--> 00:04:38

woman Hello, hello, there I am and Jimmy lovely, okay. And also, it indicates that there is

00:04:39--> 00:04:43

kind of universality for the Arabic language.

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

And there is an important special importance to the Arabic language by the way I gave last hotbar by grasshopper about the topic of last football is what about no yes

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

Last called was about marriage and divorce no the Hotbird before that, okay I was inspired about by this idea about the importance of Arabic language, the importance of learning Arabic language, because okay, it is unfortunate that many of us yeah many of us are not putting that much attention to learn Arabic language for example brothers, okay? And this is really something that you need to take it seriously okay

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

for example

00:05:39--> 00:06:08

you meet certain people and you say assalamu alaikum they know why they come to salam ala how to locate if I look up some of them they know what does it mean some of them they say sorry I don't speak Arabic. Okay if I have okay that is a basic statement that every single Muslim should know it not because it has an essence in in in Sharia cave Alec has an Afghani like Salam Alikum back, it is a statement that is frequently used.

00:06:09--> 00:06:22

Okay, and then people say no, sorry, I don't speak Arabic language by and amadablam Kappa the Allah Allah and who, who he commanded people to learn Arabic language?

00:06:23--> 00:07:16

Yes, Abdullah Abdullah ibn Abbas same thing. In fact, Al Imam Shafi said learning Arabic language is learning the deen because the deen was revealed in Arabic language in a rissalah He mentioned that it is incumbent upon the person to learn some of the Arabic language that enables him to read the Quran and to say that at the car that are compulsory on him, and the more he learns or the more the persons learn Arabic language, the more it will be better for his Deen. Okay. Finally he said Whoever loves Allah loves the Quran, whoever loves the Quran, he will love Arabs and who will love Arabs, he will love Arabic language, the Quran is in Arabic and the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

was an Arab person.

00:07:19--> 00:07:39

We can quote many statements, okay. But the point is, it is such an important language to learn. I remember Okay, anyway, this is Yanni something very, very important as Yanni the I mentioned it, maybe we did not stress on it. But anyway, I remember

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

I gave a reminder.

00:07:45--> 00:08:03

I gave I've actually number of times, which is very simple, the hadith of Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says, Whoever says de la, la La, la sharika, who long will call him to Allah condition 100 times Allah Allah Allah Allah will give them what?

00:08:05--> 00:08:06

Anyone knows.

00:08:08--> 00:08:16

Brothers, there are certain a hadith that you need to learn them by how to know them. Because if you don't know them, you will lose a lot.

00:08:17--> 00:08:19

Allah Allah Allah Allah will give him five things.

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

Yeah, over says La ilaha illallah wa Sharika hold on we'll call him while we're alive conditioning and cardio. Allah Allah Allah Allah will give him five things and this is the greatest dikkat by the way,

00:08:32--> 00:09:24

there in Isla de hola Chariklo lol we'll call him whatever Allah coalition and pudieron 100 times the Yanni all of us in sha Allah should not free our day. Yeah, from that decay every day make sure that you make that vicar okay. And we will mention that 100 times in the morning or in the daytime between federal and madlib and another 100 time, okay, another 100 times with you in memory and theater, this is the best, the minimum is 100 times in the whole 24 hours. The one who says that Allah Allah Allah, Allah will give him five things Allah Allah, Allah Allah will give him 100 Has Allah and it seems that it seems that those has an ad that Allah Allah Allah gives

00:09:25--> 00:09:59

that they are big Huseynov because the other Hadith whoever says Subhan Allah the Hamdi 100 times, Allah Allah Allah Allah will give him 1,000% that they care is easier than La Ilaha illa Allah they will actually color the whole color will come to Allah Khalifa encoded, so is that Hassan out here is bigger than that has entered in the other direction. Allah Allah Allah will give him 100 It has and Allah Allah Allah will remove it from him. 100 say yeah, okay, again it seems that they are big say at

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

Not to the Cabal, but big Sejad then Okay. Allah, Allah Allah will give him that award. Okay. off three in 10 slaves

00:10:15--> 00:10:28

from their most precious slaves, the slaves that came in from the slaves from Arabs, okay from Benny Ismail, the most precious and valuable slaves at that time. Okay

00:10:29--> 00:10:37

imagine 10 As if he had 310 slaves and then okay?

00:10:38--> 00:10:45

Allah Allah Allah Allah will make this as a protection for him from the Shaitan for the rest of his day.

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

Okay, and

00:10:49--> 00:11:07

no one will come on the day of resurrection with a good deed equal to his good deed except a person who did what he did. Okay, and more. Is it clear five things anyway this is not our topic to discuss this hadith

00:11:09--> 00:11:26

many people and don't feel embarrassed to do that, okay. Whenever I give this reminder a person comes to me or number of people come to me after the reminder. And they say Chef, what is that? That you have said?

00:11:27--> 00:11:30

Okay, and we say to them the DA is that in

00:11:32--> 00:11:38

the color normal color we'll handle other conditions. Okay, let me write it down. I said what

00:11:40--> 00:11:52

normal condition no sorry My Arabic is weak. Your chef This is calibrated to hate your I know La ilaha illallah but the rest I don't know number of people did that.

00:11:53--> 00:11:54


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


00:11:58--> 00:12:02

First of all, we don't put much time to learn our deen This is a fact

00:12:03--> 00:12:13

the second problem is because we are unfamiliar of Arabic language so it's very difficult for us to remember something simple like this.

00:12:14--> 00:12:26

Yeah, because of lack of familiarity with Arabic language. So that's why my dear brothers okay all of you put attention to learn Arabic language

00:12:28--> 00:13:07

the young people should put more attention to do that before you will become old and once you become old, your tongue will find it difficult to what to pronounce. What the the the the Arabic accent Yeah, and this is not they say the older you get the more difficult for you to pick languages. This is no by that's why those who maybe Yanni learned any languages still they will keep their own original accent which is known as you know, okay. Now for

00:13:08--> 00:13:25

with all due respect to the elders here, yeah, we are all colors, no need no. Please put attention to learn Arabic language because Arabic language is the miftah for the higher all the higher

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

okay miftah for all types of goodness, Arabic language, put attention, okay, many of you sorry to say this, you don't have much in your time, not much in your any much to do in your life either retired or so. That is Allah, Allah Allah has given you this golden opportunity just to free yourself from anything except learning Quran and Arabic language, learning Arabic language and Quran Allah it will opens treasures of higher for you because there are so many things that we don't know them because of lack of Arabic language. Yes, okay. And you know, I mentioned one time this

00:14:15--> 00:14:17

I remember I gave

00:14:18--> 00:14:39

I remind that in Ramadan, the first year I came as a visitor actually to the UK what that was maybe 19 either 1993 or 1996. And I mentioned you know, not knowing the situation here I mentioned that Imam Shafi used to complete all and 60 times in the month of Ramadan.

00:14:40--> 00:14:50

Yeah, maybe I should not have mentioned this because people cannot comprehend okay or cannot. So a person came to me after that. And he said

00:14:52--> 00:14:56

Sheffy I mean, with all due respect, how come by

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

me I said, Well, it is possible

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

He said no, I don't think maybe this is among the exaggerations. Then I said to him Subhanallah it just clicked in my mind. I said read. Okay. And I just opened the last 30 days of the Quran randomly. I don't remember which part of the Quran he read. Okay, read imagine any sort. I don't remember exactly what surah he read, for example, what the hell? Yeah, just

00:15:26--> 00:15:34

and I remember he was reading something like this. What do ha, well noi the pseudo

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

Buka something like this. Okay, I'm trying to imitate him.

00:15:41--> 00:15:48

Now, I said obviously if you read like this, it will take you three hours to complete one.

00:15:51--> 00:16:01

Yeah, and you will be tired. Obviously, you cannot imagine that there is a person who will complete the Quran in one day

00:16:03--> 00:16:06

yes or no? Is that true or not?

00:16:08--> 00:16:24

Is that Well not okay. But the one who reads fluently okay. He will just read and don't think that he doesn't understand what he's reading he will just read it. Okay, as you read you and he saw rotten fatty

00:16:26--> 00:16:52

molecules cannot do something like this just Yanni easy on his tongue Welaka the asana Khurana Ludvika Valmy Muda. So if he is familiar with the Arabic language, then he will read it easily. Yes, you have others so please Please all of you put attention to read Quran Allah revealed it. Okay, Danica hyena ileka Oran.

00:16:54--> 00:16:55

Wow a

00:16:57--> 00:17:31

little, no problem. Okay. After that Allah Allah Allah Allah mentioned another law which is what very confident that you are very confused or if people will be divided, okay. And then Allah Allah Allah Allah mentioned another Divine Law, which is what will master love to see him in Cheyenne? For Hakuho Allah Allah then Allah Jalla Allah mentioned another Divine Law which is what that he is familiar with somehow what you will own then Allah Allah Allah mentioned another Divine Law which is what every test no before that everything is created in pairs.

00:17:33--> 00:17:38

Yeah halacha cuminum Fujichrome as well I don't want me in an army as well as any other Oh comfy

00:17:40--> 00:17:48

Okay, and we spoke about this, that in the other eye Allah Allah Allah says warming coalition halacha Zawada in ethna you need a look into the Kuru.

00:17:50--> 00:18:11

Yeah, a Anessa Takuro Baka malaria holla calm in our Holika main has Jaha okay and in surah 10 Allah Allah, Allah Allah Allah says men have been if Nene Amin and Moses then the Karunya have insane and then our jalala says one minute is 91 minute booklet each name family akana okay.

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

So Allah Allah Allah created everything by as pills.

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

And then in the beginning he said that he is the creator and initiator of what of SML what he created it and there was nothing like a seven hour 12 hours before that. Yeah, so Allah, Allah Allah was talking about the creation of okay, his his power to create and everything else is created. Okay. Everything in this universe is created. And it seems that everything is created in pairs. Okay.

00:18:55--> 00:18:58

Then Allah, Allah, Allah concluded this idea

00:18:59--> 00:19:19

by another important principle that as many scholars said that and the Sunnah took this took this as a rule for what for the names and attributes of Allah, Allah, Allah Allah in fact and the Sunnah took it as a rule to defer to to

00:19:20--> 00:19:23

to describe who Allah Allah Allah is.

00:19:25--> 00:19:29

Okay ladies, secondly finally he shade will who was semi on Basia?

00:19:30--> 00:19:32

There is nothing like him.

00:19:34--> 00:19:40

Allah de la and he is all here or seeing well who was Cemil dosage.

00:19:41--> 00:19:46

Okay, and now we started to speak about okay.

00:19:47--> 00:19:51

We started to speak about this. Yes.

00:19:52--> 00:19:53

Which is

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

along with

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


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

Okay, it came before Yes. Before anyway we'll we'll talk about chavalla Community Dyneema or soybean or holiday or hyena okay this idea which is

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

I am number 11 Okay of this important solar authority Shula. Now,

00:20:22--> 00:20:27

laser chemically ha generally speaking, it means there is nothing like Allah, Allah Allah

00:20:29--> 00:20:34

and Allah Allah Allah is all here all SEER Jelgava Allah

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


00:20:37--> 00:20:49

Now, this idea there is a technical side of this idea a little bit deep technical side of this idea and we will talk about it yeah and although sometimes we

00:20:50--> 00:21:06

will not really we avoid to speak about technicalities, we spoke about technical it is number of times, but before we speak about this technical side of this area Subhanallah no many I had Asuna Okay.

00:21:07--> 00:21:09

Us This is

00:21:10--> 00:21:16

the from that perspective, the technical perspective to prove that there is nothing like a modular

00:21:17--> 00:22:13

and to deny any kind of touch be that Allah Allah Allah resembles anything or Allah, Allah Allah or anything resembles a modular Allah to deny HB Okay, and to deny we'll as well because the iron ore that part of the ISS will who was semi honorable said it proves that Allah Allah Allah has certain names and attributes among them is some and bustle hearing and seeing he is all healer, all seer, jello Allah, okay. So it denied from one perspective, nos who resembled Allah, Allah Allah with something or with anything and those who denied that Allah, Allah Allah has certain names and attributes, okay, from both perspectives, and we will speak about that. However, before speaking

00:22:13--> 00:22:55

about that technicality and not many of the scholars have either focused on this issue, if you look at this area, or this part of the ayah, it talks about what the magnificence of Allah Allah Allah, the greatness of Allah, Allah Allah, that there is he is unique, there is nothing like him. So before jumping into the technicalities of the meaning of the ayah let us understand the spirit of this idea. The spirit of this idea is to confirm that Allah dilla is unique and he is the greatest Gila

00:22:56--> 00:23:30

Yes. So put that in mind before jumping into the technicalities and this I refute the Jamia refutes the Tesira refute so on So Okay. No, first of all it refutes those who do not glorify Allah, Allah Allah as he should be glorified. This is the essence of this i Okay, is it clear as if you are saying that this okay I bought something which is unique.

00:23:32--> 00:23:38

So, once you talk that there is this something that you bought is unique, you want to add to praise it

00:23:39--> 00:23:50

okay. Or I used to have a unique father you want to praise him or so on. So one of the scholars he is really unique, there is no one like him,

00:23:52--> 00:24:23

to praise him to glorify Him. So if we say that there is nothing like Allah, Allah Allah means that we are praising Allah, Allah Allah, this should be instilled in our hearts and minds before talking about the technicality of this is that clear brothers by now, the translation of this IR laser cam If Li che Yep. Now, the literal translation of this is okay. There is

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

nothing Yeah.

00:24:28--> 00:24:32

There is nothing similar to it's similar.

00:24:34--> 00:24:47

This is that what that later on in translation of the idea is that a claim by the general translation is what there is nothing like him.

00:24:49--> 00:24:52

But if you would like to translate it,

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

literally, yeah. And to give the full meaning. You should say there is nothing

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

Like the likes of him

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

is that clear?

00:25:07--> 00:25:09

There is nothing like

00:25:10--> 00:25:11

the like of him

00:25:12--> 00:25:27

or there is nothing like what is similar to him? Or is there is nothing like like of him to likes to similars why is this where did we get this from

00:25:33--> 00:25:34

where did we get this from?

00:25:39--> 00:25:41

From the Arabic word how

00:25:43--> 00:26:07

because the IEA doesn't say lay Sami falu who che or laser aka who was che, it brought to a lot of other words that should be two tools off the two tools okay of those tools that you use to what that are used to what to make similarities or compare

00:26:08--> 00:26:10

one of them is Alkaff

00:26:11--> 00:26:15

bi and the other one is what method

00:26:17--> 00:26:30

okay. So, in Arabic I say this had laser QA is enough laser QA. So, I used one

00:26:31--> 00:26:34

a DA okay one tool which is what

00:26:35--> 00:26:46

which is what the curve how the laser cut or I say ha laser Mithila

00:26:48--> 00:26:56

This is not like this, but to say laser had the commissionee hada

00:26:58--> 00:27:01

okay, this is bit strange.

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

Is that clear?

00:27:05--> 00:27:13

Yeah. So, now the scholars in this idea by had number of interpretations

00:27:14--> 00:27:50

Okay, number of interpretations, some of them said one of them is that Ada is access by Jani is not mandatory and many scholars said no you cannot say this no, there is nothing in the Quran that is excess that is that is supplementary that is that it everything in the Quran has a meaning. So they said no, we don't mean that is Yanni with it or without it, it is the same okay? No, it gives more emphasis to the meaning

00:27:52--> 00:27:55

by this is one way to look at it.

00:27:57--> 00:28:04

Another way to look at it is they say no no, it has a clear meaning

00:28:06--> 00:28:31

by Eben Jimny one of the greatest scholars of Arabic language he says this expression laser calm if he che as if you are giving emphasis by repeating that same verse number of times the same statements num the same statement number of times as you are saying there is nothing like if there is nothing like him there is nothing like him.

00:28:33--> 00:28:46

Yeah. So this small to this is another possibility. Okay, is it clear? Yeah. A third possibility is that

00:28:50--> 00:28:51

there is

00:28:52--> 00:29:05

not there is they say if you say there is nothing like him, okay. There might be a possibility that there is something just less than him little bit.

00:29:06--> 00:29:10

Yeah. Or there is something that is

00:29:11--> 00:29:13

bigger than him are better than him.

00:29:14--> 00:29:20

Because the negation is negation for what? For what is

00:29:22--> 00:29:23

equal to him?

00:29:24--> 00:29:36

Yeah, there is nothing equal to Him. It doesn't mean it doesn't negate that there is something that is bigger or there is something that is maybe slightly less than him.

00:29:37--> 00:29:48

But this expression, laser cometh in the shape, that there is nothing that is very, that there is nothing that is even near to them.

00:29:50--> 00:29:54

So it is a more profound meaning. Is that clear?

00:29:56--> 00:30:00

Yes, by another possibility.

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

80 Yeah, another possibility is that okay

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

that the word mythical,

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

okay though the word mythical actually means that

00:30:18--> 00:30:23

by So, the IRS says laser cat that he she

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

lays out karate che daddy means his essence. So, there is nothing like his essence

00:30:37--> 00:30:38


00:30:39--> 00:30:55

Some other scholars say another possibility they say the calf here is the car for the SIFAT. So, it as if there is a laser Miffy Lucy fatty shade

00:30:56--> 00:31:02

okay. And some other scholars said no, it is a combination. The caf is a tool

00:31:03--> 00:31:36

to draw similarities in qualities and attributes and the Mayfield is a tool that draws similarities or comparison between what between the word So when Allah Allah Allah Allah says Allah is made freely he che Allah, Allah Allah wants to say there is nothing like his what attributes and there is nothing like his essence the lower Anna box, there is nothing like him from all perspectives.

00:31:38--> 00:31:54

Is that clear? But there are other explanations by if there are other explanations, but any big technical, I don't want to get into dwell into that, okay, but this is Jonnie.

00:31:58--> 00:32:21

The most common or the most maybe common explanations by the way here mythical. Okay, ladies coming in he shade. This is also one of the explanations. It doesn't mean that there is a mythical like Allah and Allah, Allah Allah is negating that there is nothing like his method.

00:32:22--> 00:32:55

Okay, so there is nothing like Allah and Allah, Allah Allah is denying that there is something like the likes of Allah, Allah Allah. Is it clear? Because they say Ha, when Allah Allah Allah says Allah Azza kam if he he approved that what or he confirmed that there is what I may feel for him, there is what a similar to him but there is nothing similar to his similar

00:32:56--> 00:33:11

okay. And this is wrong. Of course, this is a well known in Arabic law, this is a well known expression in Arabic language, or in fact, even in English, when you say a person like you do not do this. So

00:33:13--> 00:33:31

do you use this in English? Yeah, in Arabic is very common. If you look alive and had yawn, you are such a great person, you don't do something like this. So in order to say this, you say someone like you doesn't do this, it doesn't mean that there is someone who is what?

00:33:32--> 00:33:42

Yeah, compared to you. Okay. He's very similar to and that one who is similar to you doesn't do this. Does it mean like this?

00:33:43--> 00:33:49

Are you following or it becomes a bit technical? Yeah, it doesn't mean like that at all.

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


00:33:52--> 00:34:15

Now, this is Yanni the meaning or the possibility is of the interpretations of the, the structure of the eye. Now, the idea here, okay, as we said, it confirms that there is what there is something similar to Allah Allah, Allah Allah,

00:34:16--> 00:34:26

but it also approved by that Allah Allah Allah Allah is who is what i semi Albacete.

00:34:27--> 00:34:29

Here by

00:34:30--> 00:34:40

now, this is a second point, Allah, Allah Allah confirmed that the human being is what semi and proceed sir

00:34:42--> 00:34:43

Is that true or not?

00:34:45--> 00:34:51

Yeah, and now Hanako Nana insana, me no confetti Nam Sheridan avatar attorney, he Fajr alumna who

00:34:52--> 00:34:54

sent me an basura

00:34:56--> 00:34:57


00:34:58--> 00:34:59

by so

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

How come Allah Allah Allah, Allah said what he is SME and Elbasy. And he also said about the human being that he created the human being as some young person.

00:35:14--> 00:35:26

He just said Allah, Allah, Allah said that there is nothing like Allah Allah Allah, but He, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah Himself, who said that there are the human being SME and proceed. So

00:35:27--> 00:35:38

does that mean that those are human beings who are semi unperceived are similar to Allah? Allah Allah because Allah Allah, Allah, Allah is semi and Basir.

00:35:40--> 00:35:43

Allah Allah, Allah, Allah hears and we hear,

00:35:44--> 00:35:45


00:35:46--> 00:35:47

Yes or No?

00:35:49--> 00:35:52

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah hears, and we hear,

00:35:53--> 00:35:57

Allah Allah Allah Allah sees and we see.

00:36:00--> 00:36:12

Does this mean that there is a similarity? Or there are similarities between those attributes of Allah, Allah, Allah and our attributes?

00:36:16--> 00:36:17

Know How come

00:36:21--> 00:36:22

our attributes are

00:36:23--> 00:36:31

these words in order for us to comprehend. So, so why Allah, Allah, Allah used a semi Elbasy

00:36:32--> 00:36:44

as the brother saying, We Allah, Allah, Allah used them in order to what? to comprehend, or to understand. Okay? Their meaning?

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


00:36:47--> 00:36:50

Allah, Allah, Allah confirm that he has to hunt

00:36:51--> 00:36:52


00:36:53--> 00:37:07

Parliament, and I can tell you that Emma fell off to be a day. Why didn't you make sudo for what I have created in my two hands? Now two hands here.

00:37:08--> 00:37:10

Okay, what does it mean?

00:37:14--> 00:37:19

Two hands of Allah, two powers of Allah, or two hands of Allah.

00:37:20--> 00:37:22

What does hand mean?

00:37:25--> 00:37:28

Context? Uh huh.

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

Those are the handle.

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

Okay, so, hand okay, in terms of meaning it is clear the meaning.

00:37:41--> 00:37:44

But in terms of reality,

00:37:46--> 00:37:48

there are different hands.

00:37:49--> 00:37:59

I have a hand. Okay. And the bank has a hand. Yes. Everything has a hand. I agree.

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


00:38:02--> 00:38:04

Okay. The clock has a hand.

00:38:06--> 00:38:40

Does this mean that the hand of the clock or the hand on the handle of the Okay, of the bag? And my hand and the hand in Arabic We say you had to shop? Yeah, for the sheep. The hand of the sheep. in English. You don't use that? Okay. But then Arabic we use it? You had to shop. Okay. Yeah, do have means what? The sheep has four legs, the front legs, we call them in Arabic, yada.

00:38:42--> 00:38:53

And all of it we call it like this yada by and our big. We say it to that anything that you take it from? You do.

00:38:54--> 00:39:10

Okay, so that's why the bag Yeah, don't have favor. Yeah. And you pull something, you pull it from here do so, there is yet for the bag there is yet for the sheep there is yard for

00:39:12--> 00:39:33

pipe and there is yet for the human beings. And Allah, Allah Allah Lisa can Mythili he she he has what? Hands, those hands the fact that he has yet and the human beings have yet the same word does not mean what

00:39:34--> 00:39:47

the same reality by listen to this technical rule that is very, very useful. If all

00:39:48--> 00:39:59

those sects who miss interpreted the names and the attributes of Allah Jalla Allah understood this rule

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

They would not misinterpret the names and the attributes of Allah Allah

00:40:09--> 00:40:18

Yes, this rule okay talks about the dynamic between the text

00:40:19--> 00:40:22

meaning and reality

00:40:23--> 00:40:32

okay text meaning and reality it is the same as we say text Theory and Practice

00:40:33--> 00:40:38

theory is equal to meaning practice is equal to reality

00:40:39--> 00:40:46

yes okay the text the text is any set of letters

00:40:49--> 00:40:50

This is a text

00:40:51--> 00:41:06

A, B C, D E F G, this is text. So, when we say ABCD it doesn't have a meaning clip, it is a text. So, the meaning the text might have a meaning and might not have a meaning clear

00:41:08--> 00:41:09

Zed F n or

00:41:11--> 00:41:12


00:41:13--> 00:41:42

this is a text you put them together doesn't have any meaning okay, but sometimes if you put them together in a particular pattern or order they it will have a meaning the texts will have a meaning like for example, what hand hitch a n d. Now hand once you use once you hear the word hand you immediately what

00:41:45--> 00:41:47

before imagine

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

the first step is what

00:41:53--> 00:41:54


00:41:55--> 00:41:56

the meaning

00:41:58--> 00:42:17

Yes, this is the first step and then your imagine because if you do not understand the meaning by you would not imagine, I agree. So, understanding the meaning precedes the imagination of

00:42:18--> 00:42:19

the shape.

00:42:20--> 00:42:25

And hence we need to differentiate between what understanding the meaning and what

00:42:27--> 00:42:30

imagining that how

00:42:33--> 00:43:00

is that clear? When there is some technicality become all of you are becoming what morning? Tired? Why? Buy? This is a very, very important rule. It helps you a lot. Okay, brothers. So, once I say cup, yeah, you understand the meaning? And then if you want to imagine you can imagine?

00:43:02--> 00:43:24

Yes. It is impossible to imagine before what? Understanding the meaning. That's why if I say any word in Arabic that you don't know it, okay? You wouldn't imagine the meaning. Sir, the reality of the meaning you will get imagine that for the for example, if I say the word Joel up

00:43:27--> 00:43:28

Have you imagined anything?

00:43:31--> 00:43:36

Have you imagined anything? But I have mentioned something that has a meaning?

00:43:37--> 00:43:42

By But yeah, if I say neither. Have you imagined something?

00:43:44--> 00:43:46

By? What did you imagine?

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

Because what?

00:43:51--> 00:43:56

You understood the word demander? Can you hear me? Yeah, if I say of course.

00:44:00--> 00:44:22

Yeah, no. If I say Hashem bloom, you didn't imagine this because what? You did not understand the meaning. So there is the text. And there is what the meaning the meaning is the first step, because you need to understand what I'm talking about. Clear?

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


00:44:26--> 00:44:27

shape on.

00:44:29--> 00:44:30

Do you understand the meaning?

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


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

Have you ever seen a che pawn in your life apart from Shayateen intelligence that we see in the streets by the shopping ads? Have you?

00:44:45--> 00:44:47

Have you seen a real shaytaan

00:44:48--> 00:44:49


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

Yes, you saw it.

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

Bye bye

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

I did not see a real shaper yeah faction of unions

00:45:05--> 00:45:15

by how did I understood how did I understand the meaning although I did not see a shape on

00:45:18--> 00:45:19


00:45:23--> 00:45:26

to understand the concept because I understood the concept

00:45:27--> 00:45:45

this means that you can understand something, okay. Without imagining it without seeing it, seeing it is something and understanding the meaning is what? Something else by who Rolene

00:45:50--> 00:45:57

we understand what does it mean? I agree. Yeah, our sisters do not want us to understand.

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

By him Have we seen a hurdle in apart apart from your dreams? We haven't, but we understand what does it mean? I agree.

00:46:11--> 00:46:12


00:46:13--> 00:46:15

Oh, okay. Fine.

00:46:18--> 00:46:24

And all the high Beata of like this, Allah Allah Allah told us about enough

00:46:25--> 00:46:37

the Hellfire is as the promise I seldom said this undescribed it is totally different from what the hell fire that the fire that we see now. I agree.

00:46:38--> 00:46:57

Jana is the same thing. That's why even abovesaid Marfil Jannetty by me mafia dunya lol asthma in general there is Hummer SA and we have hammerhead. Is that Hummer like this Hummer. But

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

Allah Allah Allah says what do you

00:47:02--> 00:47:06

mean hamrun Let Alicia be in our Jana answered that there is.

00:47:07--> 00:47:15

So we say no, hola. No, no, no, there is no humble stop for one or the online say in common in Ghana.

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

Okay, is it because that it is not like the Hummer here, we deny its reality, we deny it, we deny its existence.

00:47:29--> 00:47:58

We say that Hummer is suitable for Jana, and this Hummer is suitable for dunya clip, I agree, you don't need to see something, you don't need to touch something, you do not need to drink something you do not need to smell something you do not need to hear something you do not need to use the five senses in order to understand that

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

in order to understand what

00:48:03--> 00:48:07

the meaning of the text

00:48:09--> 00:48:22

clip the meaning is something and that imagination of something, the reality of that thing is something else. Does that make sense?

00:48:26--> 00:48:27

Yes or no?

00:48:28--> 00:48:39

The reality the reality is something that is what not understood the reality is something that is either touched

00:48:42--> 00:48:43

or seen

00:48:44--> 00:48:59

or smell or heard. Yeah, it is something that you what acknowledge that reality or realize the reality how, by the senses.

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

The meaning of the text is the job of what

00:49:07--> 00:49:13

of the understanding of the, of the intellectual faculty.

00:49:14--> 00:49:46

Now, many people mix between the meaning and the reality when they when I say cup, yes, you immediately Okay, imagine a cup, you don't realize that there is what a stage of understanding and then after understanding you jump to the imagination, so they think that when you understand something, and then you imagine it, okay? They think that

00:49:47--> 00:49:59

both are the same understanding the meaning and what? Imagining its shape. So that's why when Allah Allah, Allah says in the Quran

00:50:00--> 00:50:16

NEMA fell off to be a day. So, I had a son I said our the law has two hands. Then some people said, who you said that Allah has hands like our hands

00:50:19--> 00:50:20

what did I say this?

00:50:21--> 00:50:30

What did I say this? You just said that Allah Allah Allah has two hands. No I didn't say that. No, you just said no I didn't. Allah said

00:50:32--> 00:50:43

by Allah said Lima Hello Octo be a date. So I am just repeating rephrasing what Allah Allah Allah said.

00:50:44--> 00:50:51

You said that Allah, Allah Allah, you said that Allah Allah Allah Allah has to real hands by

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


00:50:55--> 00:51:19

So you added the word what? Real? And Allah, Allah Allah said, what? Allah, Allah Allah has two hands, okay? No problem, I will take the word, real hands, the real I will take the word real. Our jello, Allah said that he has two hands, but you also need to take what?

00:51:21--> 00:51:24

That those hands are not real.

00:51:25--> 00:51:31

I will take the word real. And also you need to take the negation of the reality.

00:51:33--> 00:51:46

A clear because Allah, Allah Allah said to hand pipe, Allah, Allah Allah said, Allah, Allah Allah said, Lena have to be a day. I don't know what does that mean?

00:51:48--> 00:51:52

Yeah, we say no, I you know, what does that mean?

00:51:54--> 00:52:01

Ah, you make HB. You said that the hands of Allah, Allah, Allah are like the hands of people.

00:52:02--> 00:52:15

Where did I say this? I never said that. I said, I understand what does Allah, Allah Allah say? Because Allah commanded me to understand the Quran.

00:52:18--> 00:52:22

Yes. And Allah revealed it. For us to what?

00:52:23--> 00:52:49

To read without understanding or to understand, to understand. So when Allah Allah Allah spoke about himself and Allah, Allah Allah spoke about himself a lot in the Quran. Yeah, I still could see the greatest ayah in the Quran. Is what? Allah Allah Allah, Allah, is he speaking about Himself? Allahu Allah, you know? Are you are you

00:52:50--> 00:53:30

the whole idea? Is he speaking about Himself? It did not speak about anything else. He did not speak about Jana? Nah, he did not speak about human beings. I would like to know Allah praise Him. Some people who allow I had Allah Allah Allah spoke about himself. So I need to understand when Allah Allah, Allah says, Allah who Allah who I had, what does that mean? When Allah Allah Allah says, Well, will you love him? What does that mean? Because Allah, Allah, Allah consider that as the greatest idea also run the Quran. So I need to understand it. So when Allah Allah, Allah also says Amin Tomohisa, when Allah Allah Allah says Raja Allah Bukovel mela cosafa When Allah Allah Allah

00:53:30--> 00:53:42

Allah says Allah Maha have to be or they will know when Allah Allah Allah says tragedy, the union, when Allah Allah says also may 2 meeting he on one was semi ruled by said when

00:53:43--> 00:53:47

you spoke about his attributes

00:53:48--> 00:54:07

and you really find that in the Quran, that does not mention any of the attributes of Allah, Allah Allah I need to understand that otherwise, maybe one big part of the Quran I will say yes Samuel Al Bashir, what does that mean? I don't know.

00:54:08--> 00:54:41

Okay, no, I you know, the meaning. The meaning is different from what? The reality. Remember that brothers, the meaning is different from the reality so if we say that our word Allah Allah mentioned that he has to hunt Allah, Allah, Allah has two hands. His hands are not like our hand. Obviously, why? Allah, Allah Allah himself is not like us, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah says, Lady said to me, he

00:54:43--> 00:54:46

he said that there is nothing like them.

00:54:48--> 00:54:59

Okay, by now if they say that yes, but if you say that word Allah Allah has two real hands, you will imagine

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

Two hands of Allah Allah Allah Allah say, Listen, this imagination is an attempt of imagination, it is not a real imagination. You cannot, why because you have not seen Allah Jalla Allah. So you cannot imagine it is true that you might imagine in your mind something like a hand but Subhan Allah, you will not stop for Allah subhanaw taala you cannot draw a picture or stop for Allah of Allah.

00:55:37--> 00:55:44

Is that true or not? Yes, because Allah Allah Allah is unique there is nothing like him

00:55:45--> 00:55:48

while a hula methylone Allah fie sama what you will?

00:55:49--> 00:55:53

Okay, so once we differentiate between the meaning,

00:55:55--> 00:56:16

okay, and the reality of the Kalam, the meaning of the Quran is totally different from the reality of the Quran. That's why Imam Malik when he was asked about L STR by semester I don't know what is a steal steal? He said at least one Oh.

00:56:18--> 00:56:22

Then he was established above the throne.

00:56:24--> 00:56:34

Okay, he said at least you are or what? Malou we know it No, it means what we know its meaning.

00:56:36--> 00:56:39

Yeah. And then what did he say?

00:56:41--> 00:56:50

The statement of Imam Malik which is attributed to almost anima and attributed to many scholars. Aha

00:56:51--> 00:57:01

What did he say after that? Come on. This is a statement that you need to know it ABC. He said then he still Malou will cry for module

00:57:04--> 00:57:05

I'll cave is what

00:57:06--> 00:57:07

the what?

00:57:09--> 00:57:11

Sorry, the nkf is the how.

00:57:14--> 00:57:51

Yes. How is his is the what we haven't seen it we haven't seen Allah. Allah Allah. We ask Allah, Allah Allah to see his face on in Ghana in sha Allah. I mean, but we haven't seen Allah Allah Allah Allah and the dunya. So how are we going to describe the reality of the STR it is impossible. Even if we describe it, we are described the meaning. If we describe the reality, then we are making Kashmir and this is a huge sin if it is not a Kufa

00:57:52--> 00:58:50

Is it a clip yeah so that's why he said while caring for the how of it is my jewel Yeah What's so I'll be there. So on who and who to either I'll and cave or so Allah annual mana Sol and mana means just approve the mana. Don't make tough, we will fit you say I don't know the meaning. Yeah. approve them meaning, okay, but don't investigate more in it, the meaning is clear. By so if you understand this rule, my dear brothers and sisters, you will understand maybe a big part of the Aqeedah of Addison. Is that clear. But and the anyhow, some sects, okay misunderstood a number of names and attributes of Allah Gila.

00:58:52--> 00:59:02

There are two main sects, okay, there are a number of sects. The first the ban, some of them are extremes and maybe out of the fall do Felisha

00:59:03--> 00:59:06

from one side and we shall be here and we shall be

00:59:07--> 00:59:09

by those who are simulated or

00:59:11--> 00:59:37

draw similarities between Allah and His creation and they say Allah likes this by those Misha behalf, this is covered atashi who cover you cannot say that Allah is like this means there should be Allah looks like this by you know, is that clear? Yeah.

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

On the other hand,

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

another group,

00:59:43--> 00:59:47

they said listen, Allah does not have names and attributes.

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

Why because if we approve names and attributes, then we will fall into touch base. So as a reaction for HB they deny the names and attributes of Allah Jalla Allah and

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

These are the extreme they sit in Jamia they denied both names and attributes and this is also covered because as if Allah Allah Allah stuff for a lot of the Mustapha Allah I'll name is Yanni

01:00:19--> 01:00:25

Yanni some someone does not exist because there is no nothing that exists that has no names and attributes

01:00:27--> 01:00:49

okay and in between okay there are close to Yanni once we go from the extremes, there are more our Willa and more Abdillah or MUFA demo era they said Allah Allah Allah has names and attributes but the

01:00:50--> 01:00:53

the names and attributes okay.

01:00:54--> 01:01:30

They did not give them their original Arabic meanings, they twisted in their meanings. So they said Allah Allah, Allah Allah for example, said the name of Allah to be a day for whatever I have created not in my hand or with my hands, for whatever I created by my powers. So they interpreted the hand as what as power, this is the wheel. Yeah, those they have good intention, because they wanted what

01:01:31--> 01:02:08

to remove any kind of trash be that Allah Allah Allah is similar to something. Yeah. And there are on the other hand, there are the MUFA with the move forward. They said no, we cannot say that Nina Haluk to be a day and what are our book our Microsoft runs off and I'm into Memphis summer and the those attributes of Allah, Allah Allah, we cannot say that they mean something else. No, they mean something, but we don't know the meaning. The meaning is with Allah Allah Allah this is called What If we

01:02:09--> 01:02:16

Yeah, clear type and the correct understanding is to say, Listen,

01:02:17--> 01:03:02

we approve the meaning, because this is Arabic and Arabic. Yeah, the meanings are unclear. If you open the dictionary you will understand the meaning of a semi Elbasy by Alhaj, you a you, you will understand the meaning of Azizullah bottle you will understand the meaning of your day, you will understand the meaning of ash you will understand those meanings by and if you open any Arabic dictionary, it doesn't say the meaning is this except when it talks about Allah.
