Spinarak Raheem was salam ala ala Sayidina Muhammad Juan early on us and into Sleeman Kathira

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


00:01:31--> 00:01:42

barakato Nunez, he had a Shaha visiting the Minho Krishna. John had a shahada, inshallah feminine and a boy Vika

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

Rama Tico Mo Farah Chica where I speak I'm in an orange Sharma a 101st of all Salam alikoum Morocco Barakatuh

00:01:56--> 00:02:23

Ramadan Mubarak, I didn't know I didn't come to see me Jimmy and inshallah Yun Hala Animalis me May Allah subhanaw taala make this a time of coming together we had the rare good fortune of having a unified Ramadan. The exception I think of Australia, but they, they had to wait because it nobody saw it on the Thursday. So it had to wait till Friday. But that's very rare and it's a great blessing

00:02:26--> 00:02:29

of the muscles is a great blessing, even though they could be better than

00:02:31--> 00:02:44

to go away. Every city traditionally had its own siding. And so there were a lot of differences in the early period, but it's very nice when the owners united on this province. RSM said that

00:02:45--> 00:02:50

when Ramadan comes Sophie that a shell in which healthy

00:02:54--> 00:03:01

won't have that type of abilities that they have during the normal days. So what I wanted to do in sha Allah

00:03:02--> 00:03:27

for we traditionally done something in the Ramadan programming. So but this Ramadan, I wanted to look at a book that is, I think one of the most extraordinary books in our tradition. It's written by one of the great scholars of Islam. And he

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

oddly enough is not

00:03:31--> 00:03:40

a lot is known about him for a number of reasons, but I think probably the the most predominant one is that he was somewhat of a reckless, he did not

00:03:42--> 00:03:52

mix a lot even though they were actually wrote a book on the job of mixing people. So, that indicates obviously something.

00:03:53--> 00:04:09

His is his nature. He but he was somebody who had an immense impact on email marketers. And if you read him, after reading a moment of Azadi, you will see a lot of

00:04:11--> 00:04:30

things that email has already been hidden from him. It's very clear from his book. So I mean, I was exposed to him many many years ago, probably over 35 years ago with him McCann machete, which is probably one of most famous books, although his most famous book is the move Rajat

00:04:31--> 00:04:38

move for data Quran, which is just known as kitab. It's the book that Imam Raha rest for Hani wrote

00:04:40--> 00:04:45

since the time it was written, which is probably at the early part at the outset of the

00:04:47--> 00:04:53

the fifth century, so somewhere around the late 30s, early 40s. When they claim to have

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

a copy of it from I think 402 allow them and

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

In any case, after he wrote that book, it pretty much became the standard for people who are studying the the lamp on. It's certainly a huge source you will see him quoted constantly in the books from his MO for that. So he is an under he's a source.

00:05:19--> 00:05:28

Interestingly enough, he, he also was an extraordinary grammarian and linguist.

00:05:29--> 00:05:50

He probably has more knowledge of the Arabic language than anybody in his time or after in terms of just the meanings of words. He wrote an extraordinary book called on Mahabharata, which is one of their own internatia for loha. Now Homosassa fauna autodata Makabe

00:05:51--> 00:06:00

in charge of Nhuan, Chateau Hutton and Hutton band and man in my Maha rotten apple the hell smell

00:06:01--> 00:06:19

the more element Mahara and he wrote his book is called Mahabharata Gouda, when will how would I tell Bulava? What a Hatha Yoga, the Mahabharata of the Buddha, the Adid, in our tradition,

00:06:21--> 00:07:03

is probably and I've written this somewhere that it's probably closest to the understanding of a gentleman in the Anglo Saxon tradition. So this idea of somebody who is very erudite, who's very concerned about the quorum comportment, how they carry themselves. That Adeeb is somebody who's who has a knowledge of his culture or her culture, their history, the Proverbs has a fond of poetry that they carry around that they will use inappropriate occasions.

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

It's related to a lot ofa, which is with the VA reef, somebody who has wit.

00:07:11--> 00:07:21

So he wrote this book, which is five volumes in the dark Rosada, which is actually a good addition. It's an amazing book. So really stunning book.

00:07:23--> 00:07:26

And he goes through all the different

00:07:28--> 00:07:42

ideas that people think about and has chapters on them and has proverbs and poetry and history from all over, up until the early fifth century, he he's quoting fifth century his era. So he,

00:07:45--> 00:08:32

he was accused of being a martyr as he died, he was also accused of being a Shia, which are real false accusations because he clearly he wrote a book called Kitab odd and he delineates all of the groups that he considers a stray. And so the people that he was accused of being among he enumerates them in his book, he but because of his philosophical bent, because he is a profoundly philosophical thinker, because he clearly had knowledge of the Hellenistic and probably the Indian tradition. And he does use aspects of that his book that he is clearly drawn from the Nicomachean Ethics, although probably by way of

00:08:34--> 00:08:35


00:08:36--> 00:09:03

nonetheless, he is considered one of the Imams of the people of sunnah. The great follower Dino Rossi said that he is min aim that's ahead of sunnah is from the Imams. In other words, he has a mcbomb a station amongst them. And he said what putting the IV Hamid Al Ghazali. And he's been linked with Abu Hamid Karzai, and one of the

00:09:04--> 00:09:27

honors that he was given is that it's Imam Al Ghazali did not travel without his book at the Ria and it said that he memorized it by rote that they one of them he said about the amount of Surah tiny what I picked up at the at the method at the at the fishery at Def Tara for for Adekunle Chekhovian should do really what you're

00:09:28--> 00:09:32

the only facility here people cut up so he says that

00:09:33--> 00:09:46

that my eye has never seen nor my in my hand ever written anything as marvelous as the in the Shediac as the book of Vidya. And then he says so empty your heart

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

to gather it's should or should or are the fragments, the pieces like sure should or at the hub fragments of goal. So to gather together those and leave

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

of Cara which is sleep so type of sleep no as Cara they say karaoke,

00:10:08--> 00:10:17

karaoke karaoke and while I'd like it's the cry of a baby when before they go to sleep, they they go off to sleep as they're dozing off.

00:10:19--> 00:10:26

So the Cara is exhibitions leave sleep and then he says that he says let us start

00:10:27--> 00:10:47

and see well don't don't waste your time with others in it for Coloma to be human Sadan fijo Farah because everything that you want is in the Joe Farah you know that program. Anybody know that program? Kulu Sadan, fijo Farah, anybody?

00:10:50--> 00:10:58

So there's a hadith the prophesies and actually quoted that proverb. So the proverb comes from, there was a Bedouin, he went out with his

00:10:59--> 00:11:04

tribesmen and they were hunting and one of them caught a gazelle and other caught a

00:11:05--> 00:11:12

rabbit, and he got a wild donkey like Hemara washi that they call Farah.

00:11:14--> 00:11:15


00:11:17--> 00:11:35

they were boasting about their rabbit in their in their Gazelle because a wild donkey is not the best kind of meat for eating. But it's a big animal. It's one of the biggest that they hunted. So he said crusade and fijo farfara Like all your

00:11:36--> 00:11:50

all your hunters in the stomach of my Farah so it's used for when you have something that you don't need anything else. And so I will Soufiane or Delano when he came to see the province RSM.

00:11:52--> 00:12:05

You know, they had to ask for Ethan to come in. So O'Hara like he was delayed coming in. And he had to wait for some time, which would be unusual for him because he was saying it. You know, he let's say it meaning like, say it of his people.

00:12:07--> 00:12:16

So finally he came in and he said to the Prophet, so I said, and he said it looked like you were going to give permission for the rocks to come in of the valley before me.

00:12:17--> 00:12:26

Because rocks are there for a long, long time, right? So the Prophet looked at him and he said, you know, are they

00:12:27--> 00:12:29

really? And he said,

00:12:30--> 00:12:34

Yeah, other Sufian Kulu say then fijo for Farah

00:12:36--> 00:12:44

like all the like, you're the one that if they get you they have everything. So in the commentaries, they said the reason that he said that was

00:12:46--> 00:12:51

he was letting him know that if you have to wait, everybody's going to be fine waiting.

00:12:53--> 00:13:12

Like to come in, because the Prophet he was busy, a lot of people coming. So the fact that I will susiana had to wait, once that got out, then everybody say Oh, expect to wait. Because if he if he waited, then everybody would wait. So that's the position. He also wrote, In Tafseer.

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

He wrote some amazing two volumes of his tafsir have been produced. So this book, and the reason I'm interested in is

00:13:24--> 00:14:26

this book which is called tafsir. Dinesh attain with Tacitus. And attain which means Tafseer you have zero is to analyze or categorize. It's to look at something that I've seen no in detail, to really expose that the Nisha attain Nash is Allah subhanaw taala talks about Nisha Talulah, on a shuttle AF era. So Nisha means to create, but it really has the idea of creating in stages or degrees. And this is why the Darwin's theory sometimes is called madhhab initial what are the madhhab initial so it's like evolution. So the Nisha has that idea of and that's why 10 She is like tarbiyah 10 Shia unit she wanted to bring up the child so it's the idea of of a kind of evolution

00:14:26--> 00:14:41

but it's also refers to the creation the first creation which is here in the dunya that went through stages and then the second creation which is in the afterlife, so he's going to explain those two creations to us with that zero sad attain

00:14:42--> 00:14:52

hustler you have zero is to acquire something so that zero sad attain is to acquire the to sad so sad

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

is you don't know yet ammonia for those of you who studied the the ethic

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

acts sadder is a comprehensive term which has happiness, the idea of Felicity, of bliss of Rapture of joy satisfied. So in our tradition side specifically refers to the one who is saved and is the opposite of Sharpie. So Sharpie is the one who is damned. So Saeed, and that's why the prophets RSM loved it as a name. And he was he was always happy when he heard somebody say, Yes, he'd like he would turn because it was as if they were calling him.

00:15:40--> 00:16:16

So the idea of sad that is really happiness and it's not psychological happiness. It's not temporary happiness, like the happiness that people have in the dunya somebody might be happy one day, the law of undulation one day you're up the next day you're down dough, dinky dunya. Hey, it's that idea of you know, you have ups and downs in your life. That's not what they're talking about was sad. Sad, is a state of Felicity in the soul. So the SE is the one who saved and so he's he wants to show us how to get that station.

00:16:19--> 00:17:09

So he says, in the Kadima of the Kitab animal Kadima is always to introduce you to tell you what the book is about. So he begins Bismillah R Rahman Rahim because the prophets RSM said Kulu Umrah in the bad Allah you will be Bismillah for upto any, any matter that is a moment or concern that does not begin with Bismillah. It's cut off from Baraka, it severed which is troubling, because the modern secular era everything is done without Bismillah like previous peoples always did things in the name of God, modern people, they didn't do anything in the name of God. And so all these things that they're building, all of these things they're working on. They're cut off from baraka and that's why

00:17:09--> 00:17:48

they ended up doing more damage than good. Will be Hina says So he begins Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in the Name of Allah the merciful the compassionate will be histidine This is the esteana in fact the bother Bismillah is for esteana According to some of them it's it's we're seeking the help of God Ian Abu what yaka Nestor in so the is the Anna is taking their own the help from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada well who are husband when that little kid and this formula husband Allah who in that moment will kill is a very important one it's it's it said to be what Ibrahim it said I'm said when

00:17:49--> 00:18:23

he was going to be thrust into the fire husband Allahu inevitable kid. God suffices us God is enough for us, and he's the best of Guardians. So he begins at hamdulillah the arts have been a booty Abdo, Illumina Allison here, Hamed who are robbing FEMA and the who want to serve on your Solea and an OBE Mohammedan. Want to add here when you had the NFB, oh, that he didn't either and J civilian, or the aqua jet and all that imagine all over Carson or rather. So he begins praising Allah subhanaw taala whose sense

00:18:24--> 00:18:42

with Naboo wa his servant, and ABD is the highest MACOM because the add the thing about the Abdon the reason that we had this in the world is to to understand this. The app does things for the Sayed, and doesn't expect a reward.

00:18:43--> 00:19:08

Because that's they're just owned. They're the servant. They don't they maybe they can hope for a ward, but they don't expect a reward. And that's why the app does the highest mom in our tradition. Subhanallah the SRB Abdi he called him he didn't see being a ye he could have said with his prophet on the SR. But he said the Abdi because there Obadiah is the highest, the horror does things.

00:19:09--> 00:19:27

And he, he's independent in that way, whereas the ad is a servant to absolute. And so the real servant is the one that doesn't expect anything from his Lord, that it cannot have a dean there is no compulsion in the religion.

00:19:28--> 00:19:50

True Religion is you don't feel compelled to religion comes from the heart. compulsion is when you feel compelled to do something you feel obligated to do it. True religion the religion of the abt is the religion of one who's doing it without expecting anything wanting to do it for their for their, their seiad.

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

So So then he says,

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

and who taught us on the tongue of his prophets, Allah

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

Some how to praise Him and an aura Habana FEMA Ando and gave us desire for that divine presence when to settle on your cell your identity and we asked him to, to give benedictions upon our prophets Allah lot is that a Muhammad Ali he and his family and to guide us to the old that he be older he Delina with the clearest of proves to the most successful of paths with the strongest of demonstrations

00:20:34--> 00:21:19

on the clearest of roads, the mud jet truck Tacoma and Magette availa. I've left you on this wide road. That's clear, easy to traverse. So he says in a book Awesome. That was his his Konya. Awesome. And there's a hottie led to kind of be a beacon Yeti Don't, don't use my cornea. They say that that's only in his time when there's a feed out. But the majority of Obama said it was only for his time, so that people wouldn't have his name. They also tended to avoid that name. The prophets I sent him because he never wanted to hear the Prophet, his name cursed or spoken ill of which is why in some cultures, they actually changed. Like they go from handmade to magnet, they actually change

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

it for that reason.

00:21:22--> 00:21:35

Or they or they shorten it, abbreviate it in other places. So he's, he's awesome. And he's called a Rahab. is sometimes he's more Fidel, sometimes his father, Alaska, honey, he was born in Isfahan.

00:21:36--> 00:21:38

probably sometime in the late

00:21:40--> 00:21:48

fourth century around maybe 360. Something. I mean, he was already active by the

00:21:49--> 00:22:02

media, he might have even been earlier than that. Bizarrely, there's a complete difference of opinion about his death date. So some say that he died in the early part of the fifth century, and that's Imam COD's opinion, in what adds

00:22:03--> 00:22:12

no hat. But and you'll find on the Wikipedia page on him that he died in 502, which is not possible.

00:22:13--> 00:22:44

So some say that in 535, so he's one of the few element history of Islam that there's literally an entire century of difference of opinion about his death date. So we don't we don't, we don't know. But the strongest opinion is that he died some some were in the early period of the fifth century, probably around 410 420. Maybe he might have even reached higher than that. The minister that he wrote this for was in power in the late fourth century, so around 383 90.

00:22:48--> 00:23:05

So then, he says, had he recited to him Fatah, Sedona Schettino Tacitus. Aditya and this is an epistle so it's a rissalah it's not really a book. It's it's, I mean, it's called a kita. But it's not that long. It could be easily written in maybe 50 pages, in short, in tighter script.

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

So he says about the niche attained Nisha attorney was a managing attorney for a woman with Cora to be a party to Anna What are two more what are the unemployment Nisha Talulah fellow letter the Quran so you you you were aware of the first creation the first Nash

00:23:25--> 00:23:27

would that you would remember?

00:23:28--> 00:23:49

So that's the first one in Surah tarrawarra Withania tournament Kota to be according to Anna some Mala Han Yun Shona Shatila Shara in Allah, Allah cliche in Medina. And then Allah creates the second Nisha. So this is the one in the afterlife. The second Nisha is in the afterlife, in the law and a coalition are there and then

00:23:50--> 00:24:19

he's capable of all things. So don't think that this is going to be difficult for God to recreate us. And that's why that follows in the law and a cliche idea, don't think that it's going to be difficult. So then he goes into one Messiah, the 10. As for the two felicities, their home and mascara to the auditor, and it will Kuru Kuru net materiality Yeah, Benny Surah era una Kuru. Net materiality and I'm to add a comb.

00:24:20--> 00:24:43

So opening is Raphael. He says he's saying that he removed the Venice arrival. But in any case, remember my blessing allottee and am to add a column. So this was the blessing given to Benny SRL. They had many blessings but the most important of which was they had a constant sequence of Prophets, Coloma, Merton, Arabian

00:24:45--> 00:24:59

lagoon, aha. So the prophesy ism said that Ben is sort of Kenny Susanville MBI. They were ruled by prophets, unlike other people, so that was one of the great blessings so the sad that

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

He's referring to and why he says Kunal and Amity ality, and that is guidance. So this is the felicity of this world. It's not happiness that people think it's not the happiness of having a lot of money, having big house having all these wonderful things in the dunya. It's guidance from Allah. So he's saying, Remember the guidance I gave you remember, I saved you from around with Moses and the miracles he was given, remember them and then Salwa, all these things

00:25:31--> 00:25:46

with any atonement coda to the God and then the second sad, what a malady in a suit, you do fulfill Jannetty hottie Dean, and as for those who certainly do, and also in enough, in others, I think that this is in

00:25:47--> 00:25:54

Sorry, do is in Hudson, Kisai, and Hamza, but in the other recensions. It's actually set you do,

00:25:55--> 00:26:20

which is important, because one of the things about the difference of Cara, is they nuanced meanings. And so one of the things about sad is certainly do that. It's it's there, it's Mevani than mature, right? It's the the Mr. Dune are there not? So this is a passive, right?

00:26:21--> 00:26:51

If it was certainly do then it's an active, right? Even though it's intransitive, it's still it's the person that is say, here's the one. Sorry, do your son. So it's both certainly do a Saturday do. They were made felicitous by God, and because of that they were felicitous. And this is what you see. Yeah, you tend to have some movement in Asia either Arabic around the other Martin Yanis Eid will Massoud.

00:26:53--> 00:27:18

It's both. It's it's certainly dominant male Kabila was set up unfussy him. So these karats are very important in that way as they nuance these mean, so certainly do. Phil Jannetty hottie Dean Fiamma dammit a summer what what? As long as the heavens and the earth so there's different opinion of why why Allah subhanaw taala says Madama to Samoa

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

and this is where you get these weak opinions about the genitive now a novel definitely

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


00:27:30--> 00:28:01

Buchalka was one of the great commentators he said that the summer what are some Ortel Jana and the the art is the order Jana when we're not so coulomb, a Luca was a mountain and there are everything that's over you is called Summer and so Jana has a summer ARB is Kulu mattes ro la Animoca for who are doing everything that your foot find stability on this cold

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


00:28:04--> 00:28:11

And so others say it's actually bead and the adults that are like the Arabs will say well I let

00:28:12--> 00:28:14

the Zulu come down with a similar

00:28:15--> 00:28:20

meaning like I'll never visit you right so that is an expression of

00:28:21--> 00:28:23

a bead

00:28:24--> 00:29:14

so so then he says what cut that link to the article a little steroid cream a year the hola and this is there was era Bobby. So his name was our our best comedy minute Brahim Dube. He died in 398. And he was very pious man. So he wrote it for him Lemar Ito mania and bhakti sabot insanity it's in Mozilla It is a sad thing. When I saw him concerned about acquiring humanity, His humanity and insomnia is a very interesting use. Because you don't see this use that often in older Arabic is a very modern it's much more modern term, in sanea His humanity when I saw you attempting to acquire humanity, that that will and mostly that the it a sad attain, that will enable you to arrive at the

00:29:14--> 00:29:36

to felicities ban a whole lot stiffer that may Allah subhanaw taala help him to benefit from them. Hopefully you'll see or how we only know Aya until he acquires both of them the both types the sad that Allah will well Mohammed and Allah Marina and guarding the meanings well Marathi Ali Hassan is here and

00:29:37--> 00:29:58

careful, like the Euro very careful on the particularities of them for a DCad Oh, Kana. Oh, Luna insan left then move button on an American reading module. It's almost as if this word of ours in sand is

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


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

an utterance

00:30:02--> 00:30:05

on a mountain and a Haidee module. It's an utterance

00:30:06--> 00:30:21

about something that doesn't exist a meaning that doesn't exist. What is smelly halen in a heating mat a hold and a name for an animal that is not known. It's nobody has really Mount Hood. It's not known

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


00:30:24--> 00:31:13

like or Mahara. Karanka immigrant, the Arabs. And this goes back to the Greeks as well. So in the ancient mythology, the Egyptians believed this too. There was a there was a bird in the desert of Arabia called the Unkar. And every 500 years it would reemerge and fly. And they say if a feather dropped, a sage would emerge. So it's a mythological character. So the point of the Phoenix is called Phoenix in our tradition, and some call it alpha omega and the Western Phoenix it's also know the proper is motive, which is the wondrous or strange bird. So he's saying it's the human beings like the uncle Maghrib we heard about it, but we've never actually seen it.

00:31:14--> 00:31:33

When that was Eddie come in and smell a dilemma Aniela or like those names that really have no meaning come out of to add a few Siefert that are SNAM Anamosa Ma, Addy Hutton. Like what Allah said about these attributes of the idols that are called Gods in here in a smile on some me to move on to

00:31:34--> 00:32:11

mountains Allah hope you have an assault on. These are only names that you have named them with you and your father's before you. Allah gave you no authority to name them. Well, Allah Jalla Jalla aloo matar guna mean Dooney he will smell some meter more. You don't worship anything beside God except names that you have called they're just names. There's no reality to it. You say is some bit mo sama. It's a name without anything that it's naming. Like you make up something you have a name like a unicorn. It's a name but there's no unicorn only in the imagination.

00:32:14--> 00:32:57

For smartened, Villamor Sama, when am I or anybody in San Kula Halen and possible poverty or use of the free unless ill Bashara but he could watch him in man. So those of you who've done your logic, he's giving descriptions right? These are descriptions but they're not definitions. He said I don't mean by the insan and Insan is really it's a non gendered word in Arabic, it applies to male and female equally, I mean, there is an opinion of insana insanity and fatality and some some of them mentioned that but insane is human being it's male and female it's human being and so he's saying when I say human being

00:32:58--> 00:33:05

I'm not talking about this animal that stands up right he's got broad fingernails.

00:33:06--> 00:33:14

He has very smooth skin. I'm gonna sell Bashara but he could watch his reasonable right

00:33:15--> 00:33:16

like he can laugh

00:33:18--> 00:33:58

me Mignon Tebow know what I can annul however those who speak but speak from their passion we attack them on what they can melee or the Romola and they learn but they learn what neither benefit what harms them and does not benefit them. Well yeah animal know what I can buy her in a minute here to dunya womb and Alaska to home life, you know, they know but they know the life of the outward of this world and about the next world they're heedless. They look to Boehner Kitabi ID him they write the book with their hands what I can do and I had them and the lady sob them in an arena but they say this is from God in order to acquire some paltry part of the world you Jad you don't know what

00:33:58--> 00:34:16

that can be bought at the head of the hill Hawk they argue but with vanity with with with falsehoods in order to undermine the truth. Well, you don't mean Oh no, what I can build up to you what are what they believe but in Egypt and target Egypt. I mean, there's there's a lot of different views of it, but generally,

00:34:17--> 00:34:43

in the Sahel Arab he says Egypt tomorrow we'll get him into Nila gypped is whatever is worshipped other than la ba hood is anything that's excessive like a tyrannical ruler is called bowels. And some say that the human on rigidity what I wrote I wrote was called even a sheriff who was one of the tyrants in Medina so so that vote is from Tara excessive.

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

And then yeah, I don't know what I can do any Lahemaa Allah ally of the Ramada and Federal Home, they worship but other than Allah, what neither harms them nor benefits them. Will you be your tuner what I can mad I Obama not old they

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


00:35:01--> 00:35:47

they spend their nights but with what is just pleasing from words it's it's not it's not beneficial. We tune our salah but I can Kosala they come to the prayer but lazy you're on a NAS only showing off for people that is Quran Allah Illa pallida they mentioned only a little while you'll saloon wide economic and more Selena Lillian Holman salatu himself on they pray but in their prayers they're heedless with Corona what I can either look you rule I will Quran they remember but when they're told to remember they don't remember we're the only ones that can lay it out and they pray but not to God they pray with another God beside God we all know what I can what I am a proponent alone

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

carry on they their charitable but their charitable only with

00:35:54--> 00:36:41

just repugnant they're not happy about it. They're upset about it. We come on where they can hold your head at a bone they make judgments but the judgment of the Age of Ignorance is what they desire. Well hello corner what I can Yeah, click on it. And they create but they create lies. So and that's why in Arabic halacha can only be used for God to mean create with with humans it means to lie tilaka it means you live because we can't create we can only make from existing pre existing thing by allowing cannabis Surah 10, Massoud city NASA so these even if they're in the sentient form of human beings, for whom the Surah 10 Mark oddity learn as soon what earnestness in the

00:36:41--> 00:37:12

intelligible form, in the intelligible form a Surah marcoola They're neither people nor nests, nor resemble people nests nests some some say it's the apes that look like humans, like orangutan things like that. Some say that it was actually like a golem and like a creature that that was like a human but wasn't so this, but they're um, say they have a NAS Baba KNs NAS, the people are gone and nothing remains but resemble resemblances of people

00:37:14--> 00:37:55

will come out of a middle meaning out even a body of Carmela. Haha yeah Schoharie Jr. Valeri jell O you who resemble men but are not men. But a whole minute incident with quality the only light Allah Okay, Erica Jana acqualina Binyon do one Shelton. Lindsay will Ginny up Baba homo it abandons or whatever our era. And like that we have made for every prophet and enemy of the sheltering ins the demons from the humans and from the immaterial demons. They inspire one another with ornamented words delusional. Well, not Al barteri is one of the poets of battery was

00:37:56--> 00:38:01

an early one of the early poets of the early Islamic era.

00:38:04--> 00:38:40

So he says, either a Tabata joola NASCI Bill Hauraki level Halki movie then via poli and I don't consider a buttery if we consider human beings from their character rather from their creativeness from from their form. I don't see think that he's far fetched when he said lemmya Pam and Julie had a nasty puppy Tony and alcohol wahama Illa de la Solaro there's nothing remains from humanity except these remnants that you see the forms, but it's those it's just like a it's imaginary. It's not real.

00:38:41--> 00:39:26

And then he said What am in your guru Federal Home for julu Homo EDA carta V him honey Roanoke, Kedah know the apple, the majority of people if you really think about it, they're like donkeys dogs and and wolves is very negative view. But there's a reason why. Which you will get to if you go through this book. Why he's it's he's really trying to wake people up. Because when you look out there and see what people are doing. It's quite shocking, because most people are just in their egocentric worlds concerned about themselves and not about others. And then they end up when the time comes. They're willing to go to war and kill other people. They're willing to do horrible

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

things. It's amazing. So

00:39:30--> 00:40:00

what are taxi been headed up yet? Aquila? Don't think that these lines of poetry are just poetical statements with black art and more jazzy or figurative figurative expressions articulations they in hola to Anika datakey Oh, it's God Himself that says I'm taxi will and thorough homeless matter owner. Oh yeah, a pet owner in home or in local and then home on Ubuntu sebelah do not think that the majority of them

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

Hear or use their intellects. Rather, they're like livestock, they're even more astray.

00:40:07--> 00:40:29

The reason they say more astray, Allah says more astray is because one of the hallmarks of an animal is it's, it's, first of all, it's always vigilant. If you think about animals, they're always vigilant. Even the cows, when they're just eating. If somebody comes they they get up immediately. And if they think there's any danger, they run, you'll see them run away.

00:40:31--> 00:40:44

If they see a fire, they go the opposite direction. If they see a tornado, the animals go the opposite is if people see tornadoes, they get their cameras out and they chase them in their car.

00:40:46--> 00:40:57

I mean, this is human nature is that the majority of people there, they don't even look after the their own welfare. So that's what he's saying. Is it do you think these people actually hear and think

00:40:58--> 00:41:06

they're, they're just going through the motions, but cut them back to if you had the receta and cumulate and Mojo that I have

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

told in this epistle, about

00:41:15--> 00:41:49

the summation of existent things, will mechanical insanity minha and the place of the human being in the midst of these creative things on the day, how a machete where they began, how they were formed, and how they end while majority Lello home in a sad attorney for that any big disabled insanity will cavia tatata ropey Leila, and what was given of the two felicities the two joys, the two states of happiness for Danny in both abodes by acquiring one's humanity.

00:41:51--> 00:42:04

That that's how you get the sad and then I show you how to do it. Well k theta totaro p theta k for taarak You know, how do you move in degrees towards this thing so that's what this book is going to do. He's going to show you

00:42:06--> 00:42:48

first of all what you are so this is an explanation of what the human being is, but then he's going to show you what you should be what Allah expects you to be and then how to get that work to that job it can be here and also be manufactured insanity that's a whole and I begin by reminding of the obligation of a human being to know him or herself from an alma And shaitan well homie may as you want and your alum they know we're in them Yeah, Hasan Elahi Derek Aaron, so to know and the CHE and my homie my LG been your nm to know that you should know something. And that you don't know it is a type of knowledge.

00:42:50--> 00:43:18

Like to know that you should know something and yet you don't know it is a type of knowledge for a minute in me and Tatiana and Nicola Tana, because amongst the knowledge is knowing that you don't know what anyone in Sandy began to hear in Maine. And this is why in America they now said let the nose fool to say I don't know is half of knowledge. And that's why when the great Zahedi was in the masjid of

00:43:19--> 00:43:24

the Prophet SAW I said and he saw a man do Tasneem attain it's in the audio that that

00:43:25--> 00:44:10

he did a slim attain, because I just held on then I said Canada cinema to Rasulillah to cinema Wahida that he would do his salaam like in the Janaza prayer, a Salam Alikum just one this appeal of the method is different is in any case, the point being when God saw this man doing too, which was not the actions of the people in Medina, he's a Where did you get that test? The second test Lima and he said, I'm Falana and fauna and even in Maseru, and not Rasul Allah is on can you sell images in between? Is that I don't know that hottie. And the man said to me is from Iraq, he said, What are the Hadith Rasulullah equally? It is, you know, all the Hadith of the Prophet. He said, No. He said,

00:44:10--> 00:44:20

through the day, two thirds, he said, No, he said, No. Is he said have you said yes. You said helped often? No, slowly. Put it in the half you don't know.

00:44:22--> 00:44:25

Well, the hackers already showed he had a good sense.

00:44:26--> 00:44:36

He laughed at that. The point being is that to say I don't know is important. And that's why it's very arrogant. The modern Mohawk econ they always say la sala who

00:44:38--> 00:44:59

they should sell America I didn't I couldn't find it. Or mouthwash, or, you know, my washer to the earlier ones. They usually say something like that. If you look at their topic, they don't use that absolute thing. Unless it's clearly fabricated then. Then it is but there's there's a lot of Hadith that were lost.

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


00:45:02--> 00:45:34

Then he says well Caribbean or bass Mala Mia Jin masinloc Mr. Natural jehadi Fiachra he will Dylan Marcia T vehicle we will let me step in more detail Hala T V Sandy here and the color earlier had the hair and had the husband he that is a minion zero and denier 10 But you're a hobo and hiring managers attend. Well they actually well I actually through the facility mobbin auditor Moshe Banton. Basara Delano, very important Sahabi or Delano. He said,

00:45:35--> 00:45:49

Whoever does not find some sense of the deficiency of his ignorance, in his intellect, and the humiliation of his disobedience in his heart and does not

00:45:50--> 00:46:26

see the the place of need in his tongue when it grows tired in, in in when you're debating with somebody and it loses its ability to be precise, but a semi minion zero Antinea this type of person will never be able to free himself from low things. And he will not what I want how he manages it and he won't rise above his incapacitated state. And nor will he be concerned about discerning between clarity and confusion between proofs and obfuscations.

00:46:28--> 00:46:52

It's very interesting so Allah is need so for people studying Arabic here, puller, this is one of the mortality that so the mortality that there's a famous text by Imam popera which is the mortality rate. And it's really important because you can really make mistakes in Arabic so Hala is need hola is friendship.

00:46:53--> 00:47:00

And Fila is the food between your teeth, that you Hallelu when you do totally ill

00:47:02--> 00:47:04

there's other meanings as well but those are the dominant ones.

00:47:07--> 00:47:34

We have Kadima alpha t Manufaktur che Jarocin in Santa Ana pada V, to the degree with which somebody knows the benefit of a thing he will be covetous in seeking it. Well yes were added to Hammond and machete Fatah city and he will be patient about bearing the hardships in its acquisition. Where did that occur on alota. And if you see Fatima and Jaffe Toby will cave at hospital adamantium to help you heal Cobra. So this is Musa

00:47:35--> 00:47:56

so when Musa somebody asked him a question about Was there anybody more learned? And and he didn't know that there was because he was the prophet of the time. And so Allah directed him to this man who was given in the Dooney a type of knowledge. That is there's a huge laugh about it.

00:47:57--> 00:48:13

What type of knowledge it is, but in any case, it just says immediate knowledge. It's a type of direct knowledge from ALLAH SubhanA wa Adana. And so when he asked, he said to to hover,

00:48:14--> 00:48:42

had activity Rocha and to eliminate Mima Olympia Rasta, you know, Will you allow me to follow you to learn something of what you have been taught of knowledge and the added Tafseer point out that, that he asked with great edit by saying oh limiter and use the passive verb, what you have been given of knowledge, not what you know, what you have been given of knowledge.

00:48:43--> 00:48:52

And so he says, when he says to him, you know, to ask that audit in the colon tested theory maiasaura You won't be able to be patient with me.

00:48:53--> 00:49:11

So then they go through their journey, and he keeps asking him questions, and he finally tells him in the end, how they're fed up with being organic. This isn't working out. And then he gives him the wheel of everything. And what's interesting when he gives him the when he's he tells him

00:49:12--> 00:49:20

that Iike wiro marlim test. And he doesn't say test stuff yet. So in the first one, he says,

00:49:21--> 00:49:47

Learn to stop there, you will not be able to bear with me. So as you know, the Adjutant Magna. The doula is yet and mana, you have more letters in the word, there's some more complexity in the in the meaning. So once he learns, he gives them the test yet, he removes the TA and gives them the test. Because now he understands, Musa

00:49:48--> 00:49:59

that if you haven't filed, and this is something I mean, he's maybe talking to the wazirx but he's also talking to us and this is something that the owner might do. They when they write their books they often

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

call you by by your virtue there because they're calling to something high in you trying to awaken that in you. So know the folly Latin insanity, the virtue of being human achieving humanity know the virtue of it. Well not worried them and AlFalah Halima intersec AKQA. And what has been prepared of success from the one who has purified himself or herself come out to Anna pada Harmon Zakka

00:50:30--> 00:50:45

he has succeeded the one who has caused the soul to grow Zeca so Zakka yuzaki is to purify but it's also to make grow to make something grow so you're growing in your humanity

00:50:46--> 00:51:37

and then he says he'll Makati mod caravan him in Lebanon Shiva Bhima in for add about to abuela This is a from a long consider that he actually quotes here. But it's basically these are the McHattie mo louka ban him in Lebanon carob is what you put the Lebanon in or, like they still use that word in Mauritania, when you milk him when you milk. So what they used to do is water the milk to make more so they feed more people. But when you get a really generous host, he gives you the full milk, he doesn't water it down. And that's why he says that these virtues are not like the to ban of of milk Sheba Bhima and that had been mixed with water to add about Ebola and then they just you just

00:51:37--> 00:52:32

urinate it out? Right? Like this is this is the real thing. Well, I didn't burden Michelle Kathy, you know, don't be worried or confused from Canada do don't be worried or confused about the distance. We're very common Yeah. Roca who worry wacko and don't also be deluded by the actions of the one who's thought and ReWalk impress you. So the park is the garment de la San. So he's saying don't be deluded by nice garments and nice houses. But he walked is the it's what we call the anti chamber. So it Ewok is like if you go to a palace, they always have these large anti chambers where people wait. If you go to houses of wealthy people, they often have a pretty big anti chamber where

00:52:32--> 00:52:35

there's usually like, places you put your

00:52:36--> 00:53:20

sit and put on your shoes or something. So that's what he's saying. Don't be don't be impressed by those things. Then Jawas to Kiswa to eat a phrase Awara Danya Korea, there's a proverb lays Hawara but then Korea, meaning after a burden. There's no there's nothing like in Morocco, they say fast well mechanized, Marwaha NAS, after Fez and mechanized there's no people. So it's the same idea. So he's saying once you get past the clothes, you'll see there's nothing there. But let me elaborate on the hedger you'll see he's a servant of stones. Well mother and mud Oba Hema or animals oh there ina or their their vehicle like a car or something I mean that you know as the Rahila but now we would

00:53:20--> 00:53:28

say car that people that I mean these people that collect like you know these wealthy people that How many cars do you need?

00:53:30--> 00:53:44

How many it's amazing they have they have all these cars? How many cars do you need? Well, how many to get to where you can only be in one place at one time. You can only be in one room at one time. If you have a palace with 50 rooms. You can only be in one at one time.

00:53:45--> 00:53:49

It's it's like the you know, the

00:53:50--> 00:53:59

Yeah, the billionaire who celebrated her birthday with to the daughter of the billionaire who celebrated her birthday with two birthday cakes.

00:54:01--> 00:54:03

You know, I mean, how much can you eat?

00:54:04--> 00:54:21

So that's what he's saying is just and that's why he quotes the prophets I said and commended them on them on Nibi the prophesies him he sent you this one tear is how to Durham, Theresa Abdullah dinar Teresa when tickets with Sheikh affair in Turkish. So he says

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

you know Teresa is the negative term fast and low you know, parish parish, the the servant of the Durham parish the servant of the dinar there's a rewire from Imani or the Lana who says a dinar dinar with Durham Daro hum you know the dinar is is the way of hell and the Durham is just an abode of stress. Not Oh hum.

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

So so so he says here

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

today so when tickets

00:55:01--> 00:55:25

perish and and you know, fall back get sick again. We the Sheikah fed into cash and this is like a DUA. May the tweezers fail. You know like the thorns. If he gets a thorn may he may fail to get it out the mean posh is what they used to pull the thorn out so fee that she could fit into cash.

00:55:27--> 00:55:46

One a man who lazy action will be the Hamilton Addison Hello easier Tarpey he will hold up he was a year that our home and Roberto for us Anna tarbiyah. To who was that happy hour Nettie he by the blue V. He says a little in the text. I think that might be a little

00:55:48--> 00:56:30

and your bobby and your corner Haiwan rock Adam Kehoe and you'll see right in Sandton will be in your corner in San and Bakunin California, sir American will be in your corner American worker them can when you see your American team disconnect and the American Moqtada know that it's not appropriate for anybody who has real aspiration, that Allah has done so much for them in their creation, and in their character and has given them those who raised them and did a good job at raising them and removed from them by his providential care once they achieve their adulthood any weakness also, Allah is things that the toys may tell a hobby. And so it's like once you reach Bulu,

00:56:30--> 00:57:07

you're not playing you're not a child anymore. When we were children, we did the things of children, now that we're adults, let us do the things that adults do. So what and your baby and you could have one or that he would be content, that, that that that he should be contented He's an animal, and Allah has given him the ability to become a human, or that he's a human and Allah has given him the ability to become an angel, or an angel and Allah has given him the ability to be a king. Like how could you be content if you have the potential if Allah has given you the God given potential to achieve higher and higher heights while you have this time on earth? What are you doing?

00:57:08--> 00:57:14

What are you doing with your lives? What Why are you wasting your life not achieving your human potential

00:57:15--> 00:57:22

and that's why he made the sitcom and the medic and Mokhtar they're sitting in the President sitting in this

00:57:23--> 00:57:28

this true station with

00:57:29--> 00:57:30

the all powerful king

00:57:33--> 00:57:43

for the Coleman melodica to be admitted he come up out Allahu to add a well, mela cartuja todo en la Hinman, coolibah CERAM and it can be miles apart from the network.

00:57:45--> 00:58:23

Or the angels are at your service because they pray for you and they and they say dunya serve the one who serves Allah and and tire out the one who serves you. So the angels when they enter in upon them from every door they say Peace be upon you because of your patience. What a blessing final abode you have, will *in alota Annalee DataCo Allah Jaya denominator Kusa Allah and most of you know the ability to add Aloe Cana Aradhana Peri urban, Peri urban was soverom arsenal at the Baroque hour I can bet that it was Chaka,

00:58:24--> 00:59:12

Subhan Allah So may Allah give us tofield to be like that and may He not make us among the lazy ones. The ones that he describes in his word, lo cannot have done it but if it was near Halima, this was said about the mafia and when they were told to go out and taboo and they chose not to go out they made excuses Oh, we have to farm we have to do this that but had it been easy pickings was severed on acid and or or a close nearby journey let Tibet oak they would have followed you what I can tell that I am a Chaka, but they saw Shaka is Shaka is suffered buried, right Shaka that's why your chakra lake when you go on a journey, you should panic for Shaka is very longer so he's saying

00:59:13--> 00:59:20

is and the most amazing thing about this book to me is how he uses the Quran.

00:59:22--> 00:59:27

I haven't seen any other scholar use the Quran with the

00:59:28--> 00:59:36

facility that the ease with which he uses the Quran to substantiate every single thing he says. So he's saying

00:59:38--> 01:00:00

don't this is a hard journey. It's a tough journey. It's not easy. This is difficult. But don't be like those people who think Oh, it's just if it was an easy thing if it's not hard, it's not worth it. There's nothing in this dunya Allah gives you with ease that's worth anything. And that's why people are honored who master things even stupid things.

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


01:00:02--> 01:00:31

You know, people can shoot three pointers, one after another. And they're just held up. Why? Because they went out every day for eight hours a day. And they wasted their entire youth mastering how to put a ball into a hoop. And because they did that, because they they went through that difficulty, and that discipline, people acknowledge it. That's the dunya people will acknowledge excellence, but they will not acknowledge batalla

01:00:33--> 01:00:47

they won't acknowledge the hobo or the bomb you can you can you have all your sentimentality about these things, we're all equal, we're not all equal. We're not all equal, we're given equal. We're given equal

01:00:48--> 01:01:09

capacity to know Allah subhanaw taala to some degree. In other words, everybody has the ability from the lowest of the low to the highest of the high to have some degree of knowledge about law. But people are vessels, there's quartz, there's pints, there's little thumb those symbols

01:01:11--> 01:01:17

but everybody can have the cream that God has designated to know Him. And so

01:01:19--> 01:01:50

he's saying it's difficult Don't be like those monatti upon who they would have followed you had they not seen this journey is too difficult. It's too hard. John hola hola. yakka Minh and more meaning and more so female Perry Hall lady and Zara Sakina to the approval moment in the years dad who II man to marry him and him. Those who the Sakina came down in the hearts of the believers in order for them to increase in faith with their already existing face so they're growing

01:01:52--> 01:02:15

well, we already caught up with the agreement clue we holy man what a year the home Bureau Jimin those who Allah has decreed has written in their hearts faith and has have has supported them with rule Minho. I mean the the prophesy SMU is the Holy Spirit the Holy Ghost, we don't have those. He said one Hasani booth habit was going to

01:02:16--> 01:02:32

was going to recite some poetry against the machete Cain he said, had you what a year that could be produced? So there's, there's angelic inspiration, there's angels that will inspire you. There's your own route that will be supported.

01:02:34--> 01:03:16

Allah subhanaw taala Anna will will give you a lot in enabling her to learn after Robbie ma Hua Castle Robin VIP I think he is about them earn OMA and had either hola mudra do che. So don't be like the people. It's their actions are like a mirage BAP attend yes about them. No man, the one who's thirsty, sees water, the mirage in the desert. He sees water. And then he comes to it and he finds nothing. What was it Allah? Endo, that's where he'll realize, oh, I wasted my life watching Allah and for Wafaa his elbow, Allah will then requite him for his bad deeds.

01:03:19--> 01:03:24

Well, hello, sitio hisab. ALLAH is quick and reckoning. What time is it?

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


01:03:30--> 01:03:32

So that's the first chapter. That's Dima.

01:03:34--> 01:03:41

Let me quickly go through just so you can get an idea of what he's going to do. This is not long. So the first is the first chapter, which I'll do

01:03:43--> 01:04:28

in the next class, which to me is one of the most important. I mean, the nice thing about this book is it answers most of the questions people have. And this book is not just for Muslims. This book is this is an anthropology based on reality. It really is anybody that reads this with an open heart, I think they have to realize that the profound truth of what's in this book is just so clear, and he covers everything. Hild he tells us the seven reasons why people differ in their abilities. The first one being gene genetics, he calls it Lena Williams Egea. You know, the actual material that you're made of people are made of different material. And that and there's we don't know, these are

01:04:28--> 01:04:45

mysteries of why some people are given. Some people have immense health in this life. Some people have great health tribulations. These are things Allah subhanaw taala has determined, some people can eat all they want, they don't gain any weight. Other people eat not even very much and they gain a lot of weight. These are

01:04:46--> 01:05:00

the genetics of people that differ based on where you came from, who your parents were, who your ancestors were, what type of food you were raised on many, many things, but he goes through all of them. He explains the mystery of iniquity.

01:05:00--> 01:05:09

Read, the amazing is his understanding of why evil afflicts people and comes down to them.

01:05:11--> 01:05:53

He gives. So the first chapter is developed an incentive so is self knowledge, like the importance of self knowledge and why self knowledge and knowledge of God are so inextricably bound? why they're so related. The second chapter is it could have a Jeunesse animal do that, looking at the different geniuses of existent things well more than in San minha, and the position of the human being has in those things. The third chapter, they could all announce relative Ooh, she did in Santa minha the elements that the human being was created from them. The fourth chapter, they could overshare allottee Jumia utterly insane, looking at the potentialities that are gathered in the human being,

01:05:53--> 01:05:59

to coordinate instantiate and fishy and the fifth chapter looks at how the human being was created

01:06:00--> 01:06:18

one thing after another how to see right in Santa and Canada until he becomes a complete human being. And it's amazing because he shows how Adam went through seven stages. And each one of us go through seven stages in the wombs of our mothers. So he shows how the hulk of Adam and our Hulk is related.

01:06:20--> 01:06:30

And then in the sixth chapter, the hotel in Santa Fe share our module debt, with accesibility che and fish, the officiating minha that is the the,

01:06:31--> 01:06:40

the manifestation of the human being as this amidst all of these creative things, this special position that he has been given

01:06:43--> 01:07:00

the seven is mafia Turin sand, what is the essence of the human being? What's his essence? The eighth chapter and in Sam was taller handed Darren, why the human being is uniquely created for these two boats. He's uniquely made

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

commensurable with these two boats.

01:07:05--> 01:07:15

The eighth ninth chapter has come through that that insan with us, we're who is the the analogies of the essence of the human being.

01:07:16--> 01:07:46

And its conceptualization the 10th chapter counted in Sandhu and Maqsood, mineral alum, what is yada yada holy he, that the the human being is the purpose of the entire world and everything other than it was created for him? Well, it is Sadako, Mathis Mottola, he has subjugate everything, this is called the strong anthropic principle that everything is clearly suited for the human being.

01:07:48--> 01:07:53

The the 11 chapters at otter della Delia as the OG that Insan.

01:07:54--> 01:08:01

The aim that the for its reason or its purpose, the human being was created.

01:08:02--> 01:08:26

The 12th Chapter took out a NASA woman as it home was tearful, the differences of the differences that human beings have used to our tone, how they differ with one on the prophesy centum said that my Alma will remain well, as long as my letter marzetti It's if our tone, as long as there's,

01:08:27--> 01:08:37

you know, people of different degrees in the community who said, hey, that's us, our helico when they all become the same mediocrity with this, the modern world is to make everybody the same.

01:08:38--> 01:09:12

You know, they talk about equity and equality and all these things to make everybody the same, to remove excellence from the world to remove those things with distinguished people from other people give a all the children get a trophy. So there's no first place. Everybody's feels good about themselves. Everybody feels wonderful about being mediocre. Right? This this the modern world, and that's what he's, he's and this what CS Lewis in the abolition of man makes that incredible, prescient argument about what's coming, when, when everything will be about equality.

01:09:13--> 01:09:25

We're equal before the law, everybody should have equality before the law, but there's no equality in the world. Equality is a mathematical concept and even even equality before the law, you're lucky.

01:09:26--> 01:09:39

I mean, there's there's it's very difficult to get a equal judge because people can afford better lawyers and other people, there's always those problems, one would hope there should be and we should strive for equality before the law.

01:09:40--> 01:09:59

And we should strive for greater, more equitable world in terms of the needs of people. That's true. But this idea that we're all going to be the same, this communist idea what they call the monetization of the eschaton you know, bringing down the paradise even in paradise there.

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

There's differences there's hierarchy in paradise.

01:10:03--> 01:10:25

Even in paradise, there's out strippers, a saddle own a saddle and all that it can ruin the saddle con aren't the same as I was hobbling I mean, I was having I mean, are not the same as publishing Not, not the same. You're born into a hierarchy when you come into the world, your parents, you're born into a family, there's a older brother, older sister, this is going to determine qualities even in your personality.

01:10:27--> 01:10:55

I mean, just being born into a family is born into an hierarchy, your father and your mother, but they want to remove all of that. So parents don't have rights over their children. If a child wants to go get an operation when they're still a child. You know, what right does a parent have? I mean, this is the type world it's a madness. And people go mad societies go mad. This happened many times in history societies go mad. So he explains why people differ.

01:10:57--> 01:11:08

And then there's different stations. The Prophet said Humberto Nunez And inasmuch as Rome, I was commanded to treat people according to their Munzee law. And there's other worldly Monza and then there's worldly Munzee law.

01:11:09--> 01:11:38

And one of the last bastions of respect is with medical doctors, they still call them doctor but teachers now teachers just first name basis. You know, everybody's first name. Hello, hello, like first name. I mean, there was a time when nobody would call you by your first name. They will call you by your family name. Or they would say like the Arab say, oh boy. Yeah. Or, you know, even Fulani or something. But this familiarity breeds contempt.

01:11:39--> 01:11:46

In this world where everybody everybody's everybody's the same, you know, buddy, buddy, pow, pow, you slap on the back.

01:11:47--> 01:11:52

It's a It's not it's not the world that breeds excellence is the world that breeds

01:11:53--> 01:12:00

slavish, empty, vacuous, mediocre at best people. That's the world.

01:12:03--> 01:12:22

Honoring excellence is something part of our religion. In Allah, who will do that. I'm going to unmute kennel customers and adequately shade. Allah has decreed excellence in everything. And so those people that do those things, Allah subhanaw taala, he will love them. And when he loves them, he puts their love in the hearts of people.

01:12:24--> 01:12:27

That's if you want people to like you just

01:12:28--> 01:12:38

be be excellent with everything you do with God and God will. God will put the love in the people's heart. If you try to acquire the love of people, you will never get it. You'll never get it.

01:12:41--> 01:13:25

And then he says Ben should get a nibble, we will throw out a deal at saddle berry also explaining prophetic lineage and why it's preferred, essentially, over the rest of creation. He died to Russia in almost aleafia How God guides everything to its benefit. So additude insan one zero ha ha. That felicity of the human being and his inclination towards it, Hollywood in Santa Fe dunya, who the state of man in this world, we're going to attach to it and yet says, oh, wait a minute, and what each human being needs to take as provision from this world, the 13th chapter, the 18th chapter Tada uncle was shara, the Auckland Ashara and their relationship with Tara hottie Hema in an AHA and the

01:13:25--> 01:13:39

need for one and the other they they need each other the Auckland the Shara. 19, see felida to Shara in the virtue of sacred law, the 20th ban and the millimeter hustles Beshara whatever the

01:13:40--> 01:13:51

minimum is the shark or a bear that or rugby that SOB insan the one who does not practice the Sharia and devotional practice to the his Lord, they lose their humanity.

01:13:52--> 01:14:42

It's adequate the Shara minerality Insan. The 21st is what's related to the Sharia from the actions of the human being tactical about the 22nd chapter is how to achieve devotional practice and wildly the 23rd the types of mineral Mala Amman knowledge, and actually because he's very committed to knowledge he considers it the single most important thing for the human being in his achievement of his humanity or her humanity. The 24 Chapter Rodman had a bad path here and now switch tabs here the purpose of a bad purification of the soul and an acquiring the acquisition of the health of the soul. The 25th is um rod clarifying the diseases and the foulness of that that can only be removed

01:14:42--> 01:15:00

by sacred law of causality, as you know is added to amaratunga the powers that are needed to remove the sicknesses of the heart and their pollutants and the meanings that will achieve that countered in sanim of Torah and Aditya Salah knifes. The fact that the human being by his nature is

01:15:00--> 01:15:12

Made to rectify his soul, the 28th Sabha but I did it's an insane why human advice is prevalent in the human being and why he delays himself from practicing virtue

01:15:14--> 01:16:07

29 One inasmuch as it'll have you thought the left Island Mahamudra when mud mama, what are the Stations of the human being in acquiring praiseworthy actions, and also the blameworthy and their ways. The 30 is chapter 30 data and in San Antonio, here was our human being how they retrograde on the path of both good and evil. The 31st ultramafic was a Munich de Saba Sada, what's necessary, just the amount that's needed to achieve Felicity. And then the 32nd is better my ad for liberated Mote the the veracity of the afterlife, and also the virtue of death, when we asked about what La Mina said, and what occurs after death from Felicity, and then finally fatherhood insanity there

01:16:07--> 01:16:16

Sharifa Alan Malak the virtue of the human being when he's honored above the angels themselves.

01:16:17--> 01:16:19

So those are the chapters.

01:16:20--> 01:16:39

They're not long, but they're really stunning. This next chapter, the introduction is good. But the next chapter is actually just an incredible chapter. So any any questions? We have little time? Any questions for?

01:16:43--> 01:17:18

The way, abolition of man yeah, there's a book by CS Lewis, he wrote a book called The abolition of man, which is about the loss of virtue and the loss of what we would call the, you know, Shediac sacred law, he calls it the Dow, you know, that human beings have lost their fitrah and that they're becoming empty people, he calls them men without chests, they become empty, mediocre people. And he taught, you know, that Kierkegaard and in this present age, he talks about, you know, that the ancients, they were such that if a man would risk his life for something,

01:17:20--> 01:17:22

and he achieved it, they would honor him.

01:17:24--> 01:17:42

And exalt he said, Now, modern people, he said, that their heroes are people that pretend to risk their life. Right? We call them actors. So he said, like he said, they're like somebody who skates well, and he pretends to get near where it's dangerous to skate. And everybody says, Who

01:17:43--> 01:17:45

is not so phony?

01:17:46--> 01:18:01

I mean, there was a time when people the heroes of people in this country, were statesmen, or philosophers were great philanthropist teachers. Now it's people want to be famous or be actors, or have a YouTube channel.

01:18:03--> 01:18:07

Amazing, without accomplishing anything. Like

01:18:08--> 01:18:21

to just to be a celeb. There's people that aspire to be a celebrity. That's their aspiration. There's people that are famous for simply being famous that nothing is famous for being famous.

01:18:25--> 01:18:25

Any other.

01:18:36--> 01:18:48

I mean, he died. I mean, there's different words for guidance, but the main one that's used who Dylan McLean in the Quran is hedaya which is related to gift. You know, Hadia is a gift.

01:18:49--> 01:19:17

The prophet is Al Hadi medazepam Alhamdulillah, pap in Nicoletta demon, like and Allah says Tatiana Serrata Mr. Payne so the prophet is the handyman Jasmine is Allah is the true guide but the prophesy Sam is his vice Jarrett and He guides humanity all the prophets are guides. So the relationship is that real joy in this world is having guidance.

01:19:18--> 01:19:23

It's like the prophets I send him said about a man who is inside Buhari

01:19:24--> 01:19:27

about a man who's in the desert and he loses his

01:19:28--> 01:19:59

his camel and he thinks he's gonna die. And then he finds his camel and he's has insists in such intense joy that he shouts alone Manta Abdul, another book. Oh Allah, I'm, you're my slave and I'm your servant. The prophesy. Sam said, I'm in shade that he felt he. He made a mistake. He was so happy that he said, Oh God, you're my servant. I'm your Lord. He meant you're my lord. I'm your servant. But out of his absolute joy, he uttered that ecstatic statement

01:20:00--> 01:20:49

So so the prophesy Sam said that, that is what Allah wants from us is that Tober is that joy of finding God, you know, that will save you in the desert of the dunya you know your dad, and you're rocking the hardware you need for Hajj, you need Xad and the rocky that's it. If you have those two, it's YG. Vanya. So that's the Hajj is going back to the house of Allah, to get to kiss the stone, which represents the Amina, love it out. It's like going to the king, and then they kiss the hand of the king. So that's the journey back to Allah. It's that we're all on a pilgrimage. This is the dunya we're on the pilgrimage to Allah, and we're going Karana alpha and what, though and willingly

01:20:49--> 01:21:13

or unwillingly, we're all going back to Allah. We're all going back. People can say that there's no afterlife, that's fine. They can say that. But that doesn't mean it's not true. That doesn't mean it's true. They can say there's no afterlife, doesn't mean it's true. I mean, we can be in your I can say it's not raining outside and it's raining, doesn't mean just because I'm saying it. So and Allah says in federal New Mexico.

01:21:15--> 01:21:24

Wait, I'm waiting with you. We're all gonna see. So there's believers, there's disbelievers and then there's the people that wave between the two.

01:21:25--> 01:21:35

But he he'll show you in this book, why it's foolish not to believe in the afterlife. And he he'll show you in this book.

01:21:37--> 01:21:49

Why? If you believe in Allah sincerely, and if you set out on this path, he is going to he'll open things up to you to where you will, you'll have a certainty in your heart.

01:21:50--> 01:21:51

You won't have doubts.

01:21:52--> 01:21:53

Anything else?

01:21:56--> 01:21:57

What time is it?

01:21:58--> 01:22:20
