00:00:05 --> 00:00:20

to proceed, welcome back And may Allah subhanaw taala accept your hand to those of you who are unhappy, you must accept and all of your efforts and your good intention to

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

go to Hajj inshallah. Next time

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

today inshallah we will go over the chapter or the station of that horrible strangeness

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

and that Station Number 77.

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

So, under the law, we're almost there, we have 100 stations, we have 100 stations and his book seven section 10 sections, every section has 10 stations. We're done with seven sections and we're done with seven stations in section eight.

00:00:57 --> 00:01:02

So, we only will have short like 23 stations to finish the book.

00:01:04 --> 00:01:04


00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

fact, in class we will have

00:01:09 --> 00:01:23

two chapters. One of them is very small, which is the staff chapter on blockage and we are going over the fact of inheritance. Last time we finished the areas with designated chairs.

00:01:24 --> 00:01:27

So the areas was designated chairs

00:01:28 --> 00:02:11

we will go over we will always be reviewing their designated chairs because that's basically the bulk of inheritance. Today we will talk about another type of errors which are the residuary errors. Sometimes they're called the universal errors. Sometimes they're called residuary errs, I prefer to call them residuary errs, because it's more descriptive of how the inherit the inherit the residue, the inherit the remaining estate, if there is anything remaining after the IRS with designated chairs and the chapter on blockage who blocks who gets blocked by who

00:02:13 --> 00:02:18

is a smaller chapter that will not take much time and it is

00:02:19 --> 00:02:32

also related very much to the chapter on residual residuary errs, which is a Lhasa bot. So we probably should finish them both in one day.

00:02:34 --> 00:02:55

Okay, back to the horiba back to strangers in our bus station number 77 and Manasa city in Stations of the wayfarers, a book by an Imam in Harare, in which he describes the stations of that spiritual journey back to Allah subhana wa tada

00:02:57 --> 00:03:13

Lieberman Hardaway, Allah tala said para la jolla falola Karabiner curonian publikum, Athenian Hunan, and facility for illa karelian women angina men home. This is a verse in Surah, or part of a verse in Surah tude

00:03:14 --> 00:03:32

gentlemen of Groningen, who had their only ban of this generations before you those of enduring discrimination, although buffet buffet means what remains like remaining discrimination remaining.

00:03:34 --> 00:04:17

You know, righteousness, discrimination, they discriminate between good and evil, and they forbid their people from evil. And they are they in them to do good discriminate between good and evil as an important characteristic because once you lose that you're not going to be able to are they in good or forbidding evil, because if you don't have even the faculty to discriminate between good and evil, which is something that everyone needs to be concerned about whether they will lose that faculty, whether their biases, personal biases, cultural trends, you know, immersion in their surroundings would make them lose the very faculty of the serving between good and evil. Just like

00:04:17 --> 00:04:34

the people have lost or come loose, they were unable to discriminate between good and evil. They they did perceive evil as good and they were unable to, they would market they were marketing glooth Allah He said a. So they are making a mockery of loot.

00:04:35 --> 00:04:46

Because he was ordaining them or because he was inviting them to wholesomeness, purity, righteousness and so on. So they're making a mockery of him.

00:04:47 --> 00:04:59

So that very fact of that very ability to discriminate between good and evil people may lose about as well as one called the bacteria that which remains that which is left

00:05:01 --> 00:05:37

Hello, gentlemen aronimink publikum over pay 100 Society for the law cleaning women and Jane aminomethyl Valentina. valamar Audrey foofy kanima. Jeremy has the only ban of the generations before you those who have this enduring discrimination for bidding corruption on earth and how not in facade evil out of the forbidden corruption on Earth, Hitler Kellyanne women, Angelina min home, except for a few of those that we have saved of them. For that we have decreed to be saved among the 1111 and gentlemen who,

00:05:56 --> 00:06:38

been given to them the pursuit the luxuries that have been given to the metal triple fee, or Canon would remain and the word criminals and they were criminals. This particular area some of the some of us Iran say that this is the free Allah kubla it is basically it is branching off from have various that comes before it in the same surah like a little bit. few verses prior to this verse, Allah subhanaw taala says to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and the believers step in government, government and tab America top row in the marathon I don't ever see, but at the bottom of it and the second one

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

was sophisticate.

00:06:43 --> 00:06:47

So, be upright as you have been commanded.

00:06:49 --> 00:06:51

Be upright as you have been commanded.

00:06:53 --> 00:07:05

by Mark and those who were, be upright as you are commanded you and those who returned to Allah with you, woman tabernacle, in the matter, madona

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

Basia, see he is all care he sees all that you do, but I can wait.

00:07:13 --> 00:07:14

A second will not.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:32

Do not inclined to where those who have transgressed less than five you will be touched by the fire do not inclined towards those who transgress thus, you will be touched by the fire or latter can we live in

00:07:34 --> 00:07:35

a second Nan?

00:07:39 --> 00:07:44

role and you will have no protectors other than Allah and then you will not be given support

00:07:47 --> 00:08:16

from the rotten saloon. Welcome Salatu was well for me the lady and it has an anti feminist medical record as Corinne was very famous alojado the Roger mursaleen welcomes a lot of heroines it was sort of in the middle layer and established prayers to the two ends of the day. And that the approach of the night Aqua salata paraffin and heroin was sort of a minute life and the approach of the night very convicted Alice Zachary and this is a reminder for those who remember

00:08:17 --> 00:09:01

was very famous, Dr. Roger Morris mice in need, and be patient for Allah would not let the word of the good doers go to waste or Allah would not waste the reward of the good doers. Fellow with Academy of polonium in public Moreover, Pyrenean hung out in society for the art of the have there only been of the generations before you those of enduring discrimination to forbid corruption on Earth. Luckily, the amendment is a minimum except for a few of those with whom we saved of them. What about living available military for free you cannot remain and those who transgressed followed the luxuries, whatever luxuries, they have been given handed, they were criminals. So

00:09:03 --> 00:09:19

what he what Allah subhanaw taala blaming them for for doing is that they did not follow the prescription that is above. So the prescription that was above is for staff in Canada, America, government of America, the top row in

00:09:21 --> 00:09:23

politics for domestic Monaro American

00:09:24 --> 00:09:27

marathon sorrowed, Arkansas Tara.

00:09:30 --> 00:09:38

Zachary was the famous Roger Martini fellow with Academy curonian public memorial got a Athenian out in society.

00:09:39 --> 00:10:00

So that's the description of all over the over fear that people have enduring discrimination are the people who should have adhered to that prescription we should have adhered to these commandments are stuck and cannot be upright as you have been commanded. You and those who are who have

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

Return to Allah with you. Come on, woman tamaak

00:10:06 --> 00:10:31

What letter can we live in Nevada move to Annapolis and then I'm inclined to those who have transgressed themselves have deviated from the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala from the divine guidance

00:10:32 --> 00:10:59

of Allah commanded Illuminati and from Latin Sauron and you will have no protectors are gonna last tada and then you will not be supported. Welcome salah and established prayers of the two ends of the day and the approach of the night. purify Nagios. All the familiar laid in Hassan it is hipness, a very good deeds wipe out or good deeds, do away with Miss deeds, good deeds do away with misdeeds what Africa

00:11:01 --> 00:11:51

Welcome solopreneurs often relating to permanency are very convicted executives. That's a reminder for those who remember what's been family, Dr. Roger Marcin and be patient for law. After all of this, you will have to be patient because you will not be left alone. If you stay upright. And you do not incline towards the oppressors. And you establish the prayers, you know, the two ends of the day and the approach of the night. And you do all of this that you will have to be patient just like always, just like in Soraka last roslindale in Santa Clara de la mano armero sorry, had also been happier. Also the software once you have done one, two and three, you'll have to get ready to be

00:11:51 --> 00:11:53

afflicted one Amano

00:11:54 --> 00:11:56

to our middle sorry, had

00:11:58 --> 00:12:03

no amount of believed, or had phase two that righteousness

00:12:05 --> 00:12:09

will also be happy and enjoying each other to

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

true the truth. What also have a sub that means they enjoying each other to Patience,

00:12:18 --> 00:12:37

patience is going to be needed. Once you have believed that righteousness and also commanded good, enjoying people to the truth, enjoying people to uprightness, then you will need

00:12:38 --> 00:12:39


00:12:40 --> 00:12:45

So those over a year, and how not infrasonic

00:12:46 --> 00:12:48

is a very good

00:12:49 --> 00:12:54

choice to start the chapter with or to start the station with.

00:12:55 --> 00:13:34

These choices are very clever, always very clever. This is a particularly good choice because he's talking about what about are the strangers or the chapter on stranger illness. And although stranger and this is not a word, but when you try to express spiritual or philosophical concepts, you can, you know, give yourself some license to basically modify the language a little bit, they used to say that our thoughts of the tormented or torture the Greek language, because he was trying to express philosophical concepts that Greeks were otherwise not basically

00:13:36 --> 00:14:06

aware of, or they did not establish linguistic conventions for so that's fine. So stranger and this is a verb, but that's, it's a very good choice of the chef, because he is saying that the strangers are not just strangers, because they just happen to be there, they happen to be peculiar. They actively chose the path of strangeness, it is a sort of a it's a deliberate choice

00:14:07 --> 00:14:13

to be strangers, and there is there is there are requirements

00:14:15 --> 00:14:19

that you need to uphold, and there is a cost that you need to pay.

00:14:21 --> 00:14:33

There are requirements that you need to uphold to be one of the strangers to be in a you know, entitled to the station of water, or a stranger in this to be a very

00:14:34 --> 00:14:54

so it is an act of deliberate choice, as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to have the lab Norma confit donia can make a very obvious A B, B in this life as a stranger, or a wayfair stranger or wayfair stranger is the one who is you know, he's in town.

00:14:55 --> 00:15:00

But he's not from this from from town. He's from

00:15:01 --> 00:15:26

Another place the wayfarer is someone who is just crossing by he's not even, he does not even spend any time. So either this or that stranger or a wayfarer. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to have the lab normal. So it is a deliberate choice. It is an act of deliberate choice. There are requirements. It's not that you just found yourself

00:15:27 --> 00:15:35

like that you have made that choice. Deliberately, willingly you have chosen to be a stranger.

00:15:36 --> 00:15:47

And you are ready to pay the price of your stranger in the cost of this you're ready to pay that

00:15:49 --> 00:15:52

will also have a submarine join each other to patients.

00:15:55 --> 00:16:09

So a very good choice of the CFO cmo life Academy of Groningen public memorial located in our national facility for Canadian women, angina men home and then he did not mention the rest of the various metabolic de novo mammography Academy journey.

00:16:11 --> 00:16:35

So, if only there been of the generations even before you those of enduring discrimination forbidding corruption on Earth, except a few of those, we save the from among them. And if you if you ask, Who are the people of enduring discrimination, what are the characteristics of the people of enduring discrimination? Go up

00:16:36 --> 00:16:47

before a few verses up from this, and you will see their description for stuck in common America man tabernacle lotto in heavy metal Madonna will see another camera

00:16:50 --> 00:16:51

from Ratan sorrow

00:16:52 --> 00:17:07

Welcome to Santa Fe and how you guys are familiar lady and you live in a car the vertical curry was made famous by Dr. Roger Marcin. That is the description of kotobukiya those of enduring discrimination who will be saved.

00:17:10 --> 00:17:37

So the sheikh said here I'm Ronnie shadow V in an alien in karate on an axe Salafi Raja. strangeness refers to one's distinction from their peers and it is of three levels. strangeness refers to one's distinction from their peers, one's difference from their peers there are peculiar, unlike their oddity peculiarity difference

00:17:39 --> 00:17:42

may say idiosyncratic to some extent.

00:17:43 --> 00:17:51

So, they're, they're very different from their peers. They're very, very different from their surroundings, and their distinction earns them that

00:17:52 --> 00:18:26

entitlement to that station station of the strangers or station of strangers and certainly strangers it is not basically, it is not basically interest in oddity. It is not interest in being eccentric or being odd or being peculiar. Absolutely not. You. He is interested in being upright and in conforming to the divine and being righteous and upright.

00:18:27 --> 00:19:21

Even if that resulted in your strangeness you're it's not like you enjoy it. It's not like you enjoy the oddity peculiarity itself. Enjoy it. Only because it is the cost of uprightness. So enjoy your uprightness you enjoy your obedience that Allah and even the cost of this, you still enjoy. But it is not like in and of itself. It is something desirable or something that you want. Or that you should try to accentuate your eccentricities or your hobbies, your peculiarity your strangeness. You don't try to accentuate it. It's just that you're doing whatever you're, you know, whatever Allah had asked, If you whatever law had demanded a view of that results in strangeness, then be it but

00:19:21 --> 00:19:59

you are not looking to be odd or peculiar. In fact, you're looking to be normal. And you are hoping that everyone around you will be like, we will be will see the path of Allah subhanaw taala you are hoping that everyone around you will seek the path of Allah so that you don't feel lonely. And so that you have support so that you have supporters, you have friends and you don't feel lonely. So, being eccentric being odd is not a pursuit.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:06

In and of itself, it is a cost. It is a price that you are happily willing to pay.

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

If, when necessary. It's the cost of uprightness, the cost of uprightness, the cost of straightness, if people are crooked and you are straight, you will look

00:20:22 --> 00:20:25

crooked. That's what Hanif means, you know,

00:20:26 --> 00:20:33

looking crooked, because of straightness, that is exactly what it means to look crooked because you are a straight.

00:20:36 --> 00:21:07

So so that is, it's important than certainly there are so many ahaadeeth and there's there's when he talks here about Rob when he talks about strangeness and reverse the distinction from their peers. He's talking about like a wealth of, you know, reports from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the companions and the righteous forebears or predecessors about that concept of strangeness the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said

00:21:10 --> 00:21:19

in a hadith reported by Muslim and others with different narrations, but Islam or even as a holdover even Canada

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

Islam return started as something strange and it will go back to being strange. Islam starting started with something strange or even was a holdover even, and it will return to being strange or go back to being strange for two balaclava. So, blessed are the strangers

00:21:42 --> 00:21:42

for two

00:21:44 --> 00:22:08

strangers and then the acid the Prophet sallallahu Sallam the Sahaba would always want you know admin after you know, something to act on. So, they wanted to know what what, what is the description of what, how will they be like, what would they be like? So they asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam about who aren't aware of that and the prophet SAW Selim explained it in different ways.

00:22:10 --> 00:22:13

We have different generations, for instance, we have

00:22:14 --> 00:22:26

and this is a sort of, in conformity with what we are talking about here or the that particular verse, Allah Vina, una Leona

00:22:28 --> 00:22:35

Lavina use una Eva faster than as our Latinos Luna epsilon as our levinas Luna is

00:22:36 --> 00:22:42

faster than us. So Allah vbios Luna is faster than us. Those who

00:22:43 --> 00:22:47

basically correct matters when people become corrupt

00:22:48 --> 00:22:53

people those who rectify and correct matters when people become corrupt

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

or elevated even faster than those who remain

00:23:02 --> 00:23:05

righteous when people become corrupt.

00:23:06 --> 00:23:21

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said in another report allatheena Yuna map seven nasm and Medina units or Natty or elvina use the tournament f7 nasm insanity, those who correct

00:23:22 --> 00:23:28

my son that people have corrupted or those who revive my son,

00:23:29 --> 00:23:31

those who revive my son

00:23:32 --> 00:24:23

when people become corrupted and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam also said Allah Vina as he Dona Ivana katanas Allah Vina Zi Dona Ivana Casa and as those who only become more righteous when people become less righteous. So, those when people who when people become less righteous, they only become more righteous, why? Because they become more concerned. When people become less righteous. When they see more corruption, they become more concerned for themselves, they can become more concerned about their future, they become more concerned about their heart aim as their ending. Therefore, they try to be even better when people you know, become less righteous. When people become corrupted, they

00:24:23 --> 00:24:31

become trying to become even better, because they feel that the tide will be higher against them,

00:24:32 --> 00:24:57

stronger against them, and they want to sort of immunize themselves they want to protect their ultimate future in the hereafter. So they even become more righteous as people become less righteous and levena as you're doing an analysis on us. It literally means they also increase when people decrease but it means they increase in righteousness when people become less righteous

00:24:58 --> 00:25:00

and the prophets or something

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

I'm Sam. I'm Anna papa. And they're the odd ones out of every tribe. So, that is in reference to their, to their

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

few numbers

00:25:12 --> 00:25:14

or their scarcity.

00:25:15 --> 00:25:18

But all the meanings can vary

00:25:19 --> 00:25:20


00:25:22 --> 00:25:39

this very meaning of ANOVA and how not in society for the out of the you know, equal of remaining people have enduring discrimination who forbid corruption on Earth, when corruption prevails, they are the people who hold on to the divine

00:25:42 --> 00:25:46

teachings message and forbid corruption

00:25:48 --> 00:26:01

when it when it prevails, or as it prevails, so, all of them, you know, pointed to that particular meaning and that's the concept of actors or strangers.

00:26:03 --> 00:26:38

Then the she accepted that as a verb on an outline, we'll have an email to Shahada when you cancel the movie, he men mad funny, you know what honey, was Marianna, piano Eliza Maria, Molly Sarah, the first level is separation from the homelands for this stranger his death, his martyrdom, he would have the distance between his homeland and his to measure it in his grave, and he will be united on the Day of Resurrection with Jesus son of Mary, on a certain peace be upon him. So he started so horrible here, it's either physical,

00:26:39 --> 00:26:42

or spiritual. It's either

00:26:43 --> 00:26:51

the physical world, but the verb of the body, the verb, of the physique, the body or the horror of the state, the horror of the Spirit,

00:26:53 --> 00:27:12

both of them are horrible, they're considered forms of strangeness. And some people may have the, you know, the orbit of the body, and some people may have the horror of the spirit and some people may have both the verb of the body and the verb, of the Spirit, he started with the verb of the body,

00:27:14 --> 00:27:43

the verb of the body is neutral, it's not necessarily inherently commendable, right, because the verb of the body you could be pursuing whatever you like, you could be pursuing something that is even wicked, and be, you know, very among the people or a stranger, away from your homeland, you know, being away from your homeland is not necessarily commendable, per se.

00:27:45 --> 00:27:50

So, it's neutral, it depends on what you are ready for

00:27:51 --> 00:28:00

or what the stranger This is for every stranger This is for you know, permissible things, then it is permissible.

00:28:02 --> 00:28:22

If it is for commendable things or recommended things, then it is recommended obligatory things, then it's obligatory. So, the, it depends on what that stranger innocence for if you are, you know, away from the homeland, because if you, for instance decide to move to Texas,

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

why are you moving to Texas, you got a better job, that's permissible, you know, you could say, you know, it may be somewhat commendable, somewhat encouraged, if you combine say you have like, some good feelings that this job will make me capable of supporting my family, this job would give me more time for my you know, other interests, my bad and so on.

00:28:51 --> 00:28:54

Etc, etc. So, it may be someone, but, you know,

00:28:55 --> 00:29:35

by default, it is just permissible, you know, to move for the dounia it is permissible, if you move for like a better reason, like, you know, then it is, you know, commendable. Some people emigrate because of the, you know, the fear for their, the, they run away with, they're the one of the descriptions of that, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned in one of the reports on foreigner, Aruna BDD him, those who are always on the run for the dean, to protect their Dean, you know, so they're always on the run.

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


00:29:39 --> 00:29:41

to be a stranger, you know,

00:29:42 --> 00:29:51

in this sense, depends on the intent, the purpose the cause of that strangeness what brought you to that place?

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


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

but if, at least if it is permissible, or or better, so

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

permissible recommended obligatory so you You are very for something permissible, something recommended and something mandatory then even if it is permissible you're involved by is just permissible, it is hoped that you will enjoy those

00:30:23 --> 00:30:27

bounties from Allah subhanaw taala your death would be monitored them

00:30:28 --> 00:31:03

at a distance, or a space and the heaven would be measured for you between your birth place and the place, your death place or that place where you died. A prophet SAW Selim in a hadith report about the Latin American loss when he was burying one of the Sahaba who was born in Medina, he said had he only died away from his birthplace and then the Sahaba wondered why. He said in my Roger McAfee vadym odd piece Allahu men, molded e 11 Popeye fit for john.

00:31:04 --> 00:32:00

So he said that when a man dies, away from his birth place, as a space or at a distance of its way in his birthplace, and his place of death, will be measured for him in paradise. in Paradise, he was reported with controversial authenticity, but you could say some authenticated that has had and has, you know, corroborate corroborative reports as well. But you so you could say that the prophet SAW Southern is encouraging people to seek that which is good for them, whether it is in the life or the hereafter away from their homeland, if there if there is a need, if there is any, if there is no need, it's like moving away from your homeland for no purpose is not necessarily commendable per se.

00:32:01 --> 00:32:19

But if there is a need to, to move away, whether for the better your your the benefit of your deen or the benefit of your donia then inshallah your your death will be martyrdom and you will be given the you know, a space and paradise.

Why, in particular, you know, so each one of those, each one of those three points is that will be martyred than the distance between his birthplace and this place will be misery for him in Paradise, and he will be reunited with Jesus son of Mary all of them are reported from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was somewhat controversial authenticity, the most established is the one in the middle, you know, a place will be measured for them in paradise between their

00:33:07 --> 00:33:25

birthplace and the place. But all of them have been reported from the provinces that almost uncontroversial authenticity, but why Jesus particularly how to Instagram, a seven Madame la Sanji, son of Mary, peace be upon him, because he had the fewest number of disciples out of the five

00:33:27 --> 00:33:40

rosary laws and out of the five messengers with great resolve and mercy had a Salaam had the fewest number of disciples, if you remember, you know, you know, Ebrahim

00:33:41 --> 00:33:52

Moosa, Isa, Muhammad Sallallahu Salatu. Salam out of the five who had the fewest number of disciples is la sala. And he was also also

00:33:53 --> 00:34:30

That does not mean that you will not be reunited with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam certainly that would be you know, that would That's out of the question. But the symbolism here is that you will be reunited with the prophet who had the fewest who felt the lonely, that lonely and less lonely. Yes. And had the fewest number of disciples and was always on the run for his, the.

00:34:33 --> 00:34:59

So some of you like some of you may have experienced this verbal, some of you are born here. Some of you feel the you know, that, you know, some of you immigrated here, but all of you, you have, to some extent, a type of verba because you will live with a Muslim majority and sometimes you look different

00:35:00 --> 00:35:05

And you're perceived as different you're being always other eyes as they say.

00:35:07 --> 00:35:14

So be those other eyes makes you feel a little bit different and makes you feel a little bit uncomfortable

00:35:16 --> 00:35:25

but keep in mind that verba is not about morbidity be morbid is not about sadness, it's a and you could be happy

00:35:26 --> 00:35:38

in your horrible endure stranger, stranger illness idiosyncrasy you could be that happy even if you're perceived as either different or or if your other eyes

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

In fact, the moment the American Allah had this

00:35:45 --> 00:35:55

you know, the status the the the statement about the people who live in within Muslim majority he said what is Africa?

00:35:56 --> 00:36:18

What is advocated muslimeen and multiplicity and abidi nihan vdrl Kufa la homosassa could llama can wax Ramos masukkan be the name Fender Harada him Shara Fabien ob him Hata indicated Mashallah kina kita is our our Muslim mo tomasik abedini Oh, ma de mucho, mucho

00:36:20 --> 00:36:23

la la Buena Vista men.

00:36:26 --> 00:36:49

Sabina Islam men lattice mystic wanna be happy party or midlayer madona the happy party. So the North American Allah said that this this is just like beautiful. A beautiful statement about the Muslims. He said that's why you find the Muslims who adhere to their Deen

00:36:51 --> 00:36:55

in the lens of the non Muslim lens or lens of unbelief, please.

00:36:57 --> 00:37:04

In the lens of unbelief, you find the Muslims who are adhering or you are upholding their Deen

00:37:05 --> 00:37:12

they will sad or happiness will be their lot they will be happy.

00:37:13 --> 00:37:54

As long as or as much as are congruent with their happiness will be congruent with their adherence to their Deen the more adherent to their Deen the happier they become because it's an internal thing. It's and it's not the giddy indifference lack of concern, it is the internal it is the inner peace and contentment and that is why people always have a little bit of a problem understanding this, you know, so people who are righteous are upright in the midst of people who are not practicing, how could they be happy, it's the inner peace and contentment

00:37:56 --> 00:38:22

it is not the giddy indifference or lack of concern. So that you will find them he said the more practicing the more at the you know they have here to there the the happier they become. Otherwise you will find the people who do not adhere to their Deen they'll have all kinds of identity crises and they'll just be very unhappy as a minority until they leave completely and then they become the unhappiest

00:38:23 --> 00:38:31

but when when they are on the fence, they are very uncomfortable on the fence. Being on the fence makes you extremely uncomfortable.

00:38:32 --> 00:39:08

But people who are upholding their Deen adhering to their Deen they'll be happy to have a shadow over him. So if evil befalls them, the Muslim minorities in non Muslim lands if evil befalls them, it is because of their sins. It is because of their selves. And then he says that you will find that the polytheists and the people of the book when they see some Muslim who upholds his Deen truly, you know, genuinely adheres to his Deen they will honor them. They will.

00:39:11 --> 00:39:26

They elevate them the honor them are a woman that you can afford to subpoena Islam. Men evade alarm, you need to be happy. So they honor them, the elevate them and then they even exempted them of sort of,

00:39:27 --> 00:39:33

sort of the meaning work or jobs that they demand of

00:39:34 --> 00:39:49

those who profess Islam without adhering to its essence, those who profess Islam without adhering to its essence, the Muslim who is truly Muslim, you know, inside

00:39:50 --> 00:39:59

and out. Muslim who is truly Muslim within and without is going to be elevated and honored even by people who do not professors that

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

Because they will recognize, you know, their genuine righteousness, they will recognize their manners they will recognize their etiquette they were they recognize the, you know, the taste of Islam, the order of Islam in them, not just the

00:40:20 --> 00:40:22

basically sort of affiliation

00:40:24 --> 00:40:34

or just professing the religion without acting upon its teachings. So, a horrible stranger in this in this respect does not necessarily mean

00:40:36 --> 00:40:45

grief or depression or sadness. It could mean it means the very opposite, contentment, peace, you know,

00:40:46 --> 00:40:47


00:40:49 --> 00:41:14

then the sheer, you know, so we're done with this. The first verba is the verb a verb of the body when you are in the midst of people that when you are away from your homeland when you are away from your homeland.

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

led to a

because of which the enemies have control over, because of which the enemies have control over us who are so weak we have, have the vain desires, we have the, you know, mired of

00:43:11 --> 00:43:26

the weaknesses, that makes our enemy have control over us, then that is the worst type of strangeness. So we're all strangers. Even if you are in your sort of

00:43:27 --> 00:43:35

World of the homeland, your birth place in this world, you're still a stranger, because you should not feel

00:43:36 --> 00:43:46

00:43:48 --> 00:43:53

Then the SEC talks about war battle had about a 30 hour battle had

00:43:55 --> 00:44:16

the second level is the distinction of the hand. So, this is the spiritual one. Now, this is the the the, the the sort of the peculiarity of the state or the strangeness of the state even if you are in your homeland among your family members and your friends and

00:44:18 --> 00:44:19

but if you

00:44:21 --> 00:44:22

if you have a different state,

00:44:23 --> 00:44:25

different him different

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

Remember in a common idiom how subdeacon by in a common one has been, so that the person who has that strangeness of his head or his state, it's a righteous man in corrupts time in a corrupt time among corrupt people, or a scholar among the ignorant people are an honest man among hypocrites. So, generally speaking, they all overlap they, they are interdependent, but the, you know, they're different, there are differences. So not every ignorant person is hypocrites, but

00:45:37 --> 00:45:59

but the meaning is obvious. It is a righteous man among corrupt people, it is truthful man, genuine, truthful man among hypocrites, or it is a knowledgeable man among ignorant people. So that is the horrible of the state. And that is, why is he saying to bother Who?

00:46:03 --> 00:46:27

And this stranger is of those promise the blessedness? Because he thinks or he, you know, why weren't they appropriately rightfully thinks that this is what the Hadees talks about this type of her body style, the word spiritual word about the word about the state, is what the Hadees is talking about for two but what about Islam or even was a holdover even?

00:46:29 --> 00:46:41

Islam starts with something strange and it will return back to the install or go back or return to being strange. Then blasted are the strangers so he thinks the Hadith applies to this particular

00:46:43 --> 00:46:53

group of horribad, or strangers those who have distinction of their health or their inner state.

00:46:54 --> 00:47:42

And as we served the different meanings of the Hadith those who become more righteous when people become as righteous those who forbid evil, when people become corrupted those who revive the son of the promises and amend the rectify this and when people abandon it, or when people corrupt it and zamunda and the odd the odd few odd ones, among them, each tribe, those who are obedient, even though on their own for their the, all of those meanings apply to this type of verb or this category of horrible.

Not feel your own self or not recognize your own self, because the only thing that you are concerned with is the divine.

00:48:12 --> 00:48:44

He said horrible to him. a horrible, terrible, horrible if they are not artificial at every bonus, Uber who fees at every one I'll do the black middle Well, I will zero had what we call movie Eros multi genre is no longer a smokescreen

00:48:50 --> 00:49:10

Okay, adalja 230. Sir, over battle him as a third that evidence the distinction of result, we have to have this is the strangeness in pursuit of hollyhock of a true one. And half is that true one, which is a lot, the true one, the you know, the necessary existence.

00:49:11 --> 00:49:36

That is why they call him the true one. Because our existence is contingent, you know, we're disposable, like, if we are not around the world will still be here and feel it. Can we imagine the world without you? Absolutely. Can you imagine the world without any one of us? Well, absolutely. Can you imagine the world without all of us? Absolutely. You know, there could be a universe.

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

But can you imagine the world without the maker? Absolutely not necessary existence. That's what it means. So that's why they call him God. law that ruin and harm.

00:49:53 --> 00:49:59

way or another it fish at every bit is the strangeness of the IRF diary, as we said is the one who has the

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

Under the knowledge, the beneficial knowledge of the interior, not only the knowledge of the tank, but the knowledge of the heart, not only the knowledge, the intellectual knowledge that will help you in you know, debates and make you dialectically competent, not that but the knowledge that will make you upright and righteous, the knowledge that will make you kind and merciful, the knowledge that will make you observant of Allah subhanaw taala devoted to Allah, the knowledge that will make you less pretentious, more genuine, more true to your to Allah subhanaw taala seeking Him alone, not seeking anything else or you know, or any sub optimal objective or goal. So that is the order that

00:50:45 --> 00:50:49

is the knowledge that they call Marica.

00:50:51 --> 00:50:53

That's the knowledge of God.

00:50:54 --> 00:51:17

Because he is peculiar with regard to his witness and his companions his finds are not delivered by knowledge revealed by words established by forms expressed by signals or outlined by definitions, the strangeness of direct is the epitome of all the strangeness because he is a stranger in this life and the hereafter.

00:51:20 --> 00:51:46

00:51:47 --> 00:52:00

00:52:02 --> 00:52:08

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


00:52:14 --> 00:52:18

of their state. They're able to detect it, you know, promptly

00:52:20 --> 00:52:27

because of their, because of their enlightenment statue, enlightenment, you know, of

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

the knower.

00:52:30 --> 00:52:58

Okay, because he is peculiar with regard to his witness, and that witness the, you know, the testifies before him concerning the uprightness of his state, is peculiar, it is not like anyone else's, and his companions, what are his companions must, who must hooba, who feel sad that he must feel better if three things are with IRF as his companions, what are they,

00:52:59 --> 00:53:37

and muama Hello, those are the companions of diet, if the companions, the item is sometimes translated as nasty, but we avoid gnostic, although it would be a good translation, because of some negative connotations that we can strip from it. So, we call it the knower or we just call it a diet. So, the the job or the companions of the IRF are three things, his knowledge, his actions, and his inner state has had and one on one hand muama, who had these are the companions of the IRF.

00:53:38 --> 00:54:06

Whenever you know, even if he doesn't have any companions, he will have those and those will be enough for him to give him company and he will not feel strange, you know, he will not feel grief because of strangers. He will feed contentment as we said before Masada sada will be there a lot, you know, Dr. Abdul Wahab Azam, just to highlight that point that you know, you don't have

00:54:08 --> 00:54:14

1959 he died in 1959, you know, a llama bag from Pakistan.

00:54:42 --> 00:54:53

You know, all of the poetry or most of the poetry that was translated into Arabic was translated by Dr. Abdul Havas, who was truly like

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

a gym in his time. Extremely educated, extremely enlightened.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:06

enlightened and had, you know, very always extremely passionate about Islam as well. And he was

00:55:07 --> 00:55:36

the, you know, he was a professor and he was an ambassador. And so so he was surrounded that this was a time, you know, in the Arab world in general. This was a time where people who've gone away from the particularly with em, those classes, you know, the people were basically seeking enlightenment in the sort of the in the wrong way. So he certainly must have felt very,

00:55:38 --> 00:55:42

you know, he must have felt very lonely

00:55:43 --> 00:55:44

among those people,

00:55:45 --> 00:55:47

particularly within his class.

00:55:50 --> 00:55:55

00:56:58 --> 00:57:20

he built his own town. He said I am in my own world. It is my world. He built his world for himself. You know so if you build your own town, you'll never be a stranger in the town in that town. But it is your own, you built it yourself, have an item you have the ability I am in my own world, upon my own path.

00:57:22 --> 00:57:45

So that she says when I was hobo, he said he read his companions are peculiar. So if he lost all companions, those three companions will be with him with him all the time would give him company, his his knowledge his family, his his deeds, and his had his interstate. His friends are not delivered by knowledge when we talk about

00:57:47 --> 00:57:54

GMO GMO due to his fines. Spiritual fines are not delivered by knowledge even though they are not

00:57:56 --> 00:58:28

countered to knowledge, but knowledge alone would not procure them, you know, certainly knowledge alone will not procure procure those states, unless there is devotion and effort, not delivered by knowledge or revealed by words. And we have explained in the station of words, what words is about spiritual procurement, usually translated as ecstasy stablished by forms, you know, his his physical form is not able to establish

00:58:29 --> 00:58:41

the requirements of that station. It is something that you don't acquire, by extra work or by your physical form. It's, it's the travel of the heart.

00:58:43 --> 00:59:11

So, not established by forms expressed by signals, even symbolism is unable to express the nature of this level or the nature of this station. Even symbolism is not able to express it. It's not expressed by segments are outlined by definitions, the strangeness of the IRF is the epitome of all the strangeness because he is a stranger in this life and the hereafter, meaning that he is a stranger among

00:59:12 --> 00:59:22

people of this life and the people of the hereafter. Even the people only after Yes, because most of them are not at his station, they cannot relate to him, he cannot relate to them.

00:59:25 --> 00:59:35

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

And their journey is different from everybody's journey. That is why they are

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

alone on their on this path because everyone else is way behind them or not even on the same pass to the public.
