Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah.
So last time we
a new chapter on Yakuza. And we said the APA is wakefulness alertness.
The second Bab is Babbitt talga however, which is the verb of repentance, or the chapter of repentance, and they call it bad because it's, it's a gate that allows you to exit from ignorance into knowledge. So it's like, there's like a wall between a knowledge and ignorance. And in order for you to move from knowledge, from ignorance to knowledge,
you will actually have to seek the proper door in the wall, it's not like you're gonna trespass at any point of crossing, you will actually have to find the wall, you will have to find the wall for sure. But you will also have to thereafter find the door in the wall between ignorance and knowledge, so that you could exit from ignorance into knowledge. So they called the Bab.
Chapter, bad because it is the door in the wall that will allow you to exit from ignorance into knowledge. So Babel, the aka or the chapter on E aka wakefulness and alertness. As we said last time, it's not just wakefulness, it's just not not only to be awake, but also to be alert, alert to the purpose of your existence, alert to basically, why you are here, alert to the existential answers of the existential questions. What are we here for? Why, you know, who brought us here? What are we here for? And where are we going? And those are, you know, extremely important questions that everyone must answer.
And your alertness to the answers, your your wakefulness and alertness to the answers means that you have ecola wakefulness and alertness. We did not finish the chapter on jacoba, we said that the EPA is, you know, made up of three parts. The first one is law that can be learned, which is basically the heart beholding the boundaries of a law, and we will not go over them because we've covered the last time second was multilotto jenaya, which is beholding or
court appreciating the magnitude magnitude of the offense that you've committed.
Or you're not just the offenses, but also your failures and shortcomings. And the third one is an antibody modified to zero knocks on minute AM, which is basically
being alert to the gains and losses that you accrue in your condition through the succession of the days and we will come back to it. So he said, the first one which is modified to Noma been able to realize the noun of a lot of bounty of a lot of favors of Alon you've been able to realize them.
He said prathima Hola.
Shephard Islam I was my blood on saadian tarawih furama modified to Nam NAFTA in a hospital visit us at ESEA binnorie lock was shy me blue pill Minh,
what are the bar behind it better? Well, the antibody behind it better.
So he said, As for realizing the bounty of alights attained through three things.
The first one is neural arc, which is the light of the intellect, the light of the intellect
or the insight of the intellect
the shame of European men shame of European men. Shyam is to see the rays through the clouds.
When you're when you're able to see rays through the clouds that is same. Being able to witness Behold, the rays through the clouds shame Guru filmin
would mean here the light or mean here witnessing or beholding the raise of grace. Last minute last grace through the clouds which clouds
the clouds of custom Enos customer's habituation because every day you wake up in the morning used to having your your
Hearing your sight your faculties, your senses, every day you wake up in the morning,
you know, used to having the sun come out every day and
there will be light in the streets, you will go to work and you will be able to, you know, usually
function and make a living and so on and return home and find your
spouse and your children. So you get accustomed to all of this. And this custom minus tau would lie the
habituation makes you actually insensitive to the minute the grace of Allah subhanaw taala. And all of this because there there is no entitle, you are not entitled to any of this. So waking up one day, and you know, some halala sometimes the people who suffer from certain afflictions,
it's not like a Lost Planet, Allah created them to be a lesson for us because they themselves benefit from their suffering, it makes them
more purposeful, you know, people who suffer from, you know, afflictions, whether it's loss of senses, faculties, any losses, they tend to grow spiritually, and they tend to mature even intellectually, a little bit faster than others.
But also, they you know, it like when you hear about a disease, like Ms, for instance, multiple sclerosis, where people can just wake up one day not having one of their, you know, faculties or they could just wake up one day and not being able to remove the left arm, they could wake up another day or not being able to see or the way it. So it is random. It is unpredictable, it's unexpected. And that is basically a Lost Planet, Allah is saying, No, you're not entitled, just by, you know, being a human being, you're not entitled to all of this that I have given you.
And remember to be observant of the grace of Allah, subhanaw, taala, and every noun that you have, and every noun, and the greatest of all, is now met with a man, the belief, the belief, faith, is the grace of face that he had given you. That's the greatest of all, and the absolute one, all of the other ones are relative, relative to how you would use them, relative
to how they will benefit you or harm you, they could benefit or harm you.
You know, all of those neon could be a source of benefit for us or self harm, you know, so you compare the power of 0.9, to the power of around you compare the wealth of our own the wealth of
a man, Allah, his son, a man who's wealthy parents will see for our most powerful the Carolinas was powerful. But what did one do versus the other. So power itself, or wealth itself is not an absolute noun, it's a relative number two, all depends on how you would use it, except to the name of the man, it is an absolute number. You cannot, like go wrong with a man. And with more email, you will never lose with a man or with more email.
Then he, he said that the shame of broken men now it is basically to be able to witness the raise of grace or to behold the rays of grace through the clouds of customers, and get yourself used to it that you just, you know, reflect on a loss now I'm on you every day.
And taking heat from the condition of those affected by the activity, Barbie added Bella and taking heat from the condition of those afflicted, taking heat from the condition of those afflicted by saying and hamdulillah you know, by saying I'm not entitled by zero hunger, Allah and the greatest of all afflictions is to lose face. greatest of all afflictions,
is to have no purpose in life. I mean, because if you lose faith, your life is really meaningless is really purposeless. Then he said, Well, I'm not allowed to deny
that our women have pornography. It's enough sort of the Apple Watch.
While I'm on with a lot with generika, as per observing the transgression. Generic here is his transgression. It's your own transgressive.
In Arkansas with certainty, it will be attainable through the three things.
First, what is the ultimate hack? The glorification of the hack, the glorification of and how we translate how the true Word, impact is the truth. And that is, you know, one of the names of our last panel dilates the true one.
Or you could say the truth but yeah, you know, that is a loss of pinata.
So Mario tanzimat have it is the glorification of the hab, Allah subhana wa tada modified to neffs the awareness of the neffs your awareness of your maps, your awareness of the self, the awareness, your awareness of the shortcomings and the failures and the deficiencies and limitations of the self. And the third one, what is the
what is The L Word? To believe in the warnings, the belief in the warnings and why? I'm sorry, why? The warnings.
Allah subhanaw taala says in the Vatican attorney montafon.
In the month a month Roma, yaksha, methodical element of Alibaba Farah verily in this in Might, telling you of the stories of the ancient nations and sort of food losses, the idea there is a site, but if for whom, the man half hour
for those who fear from the punishment of the hereafter. If you don't, if you don't have that fear from the punishment of the Hereafter, nothing would work for you as a side nothing would be of benefit for you. There, no matter how many lights you come across the you will not be able to see them.
In Romania and Sora nazjatar you're only a warner, you Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, you are only a warner for those who wait who have fear from it, which is the you know, the punishment of the hereafter.
Your only award there for those who have fear from it. If you have no fear from Farah, then there will be no warning or for you. So to sleep. It is the belief in the warnings.
And then he said, Well, I'm America to zero to noxa mineral Iam farinata supima, with the Lhasa tea and Shia and as for the recognition of the losses and gains in his condition accrued through the succession of the days, it can be attained through three things. Maya Xiao Nakamura yummy. It's English, linguistically a little bit cumbersome but it just means that
the unable to recognize be insensitive enough to recognize the changes in your head and the changes in your macom the changes in European edition both macom and hat
through the succession of days, are you increasing or decreasing? Are you losing Are you gaining? Where Where are you in the sight of Allah? Where do you stand in you know, how much did you accomplish through your journey? How far are you how close that is basically, sensitivity to your condition, sensitivity to your condition and and certainly people who have no more I have no watchfulness, no Maha Sabha no Sal Franklin will be
utterly insensitive to their condition or they will be indifferent to beginners in different to where they you know, they're standing before a loss of one hour thought. So, maarif is yellow an examiner if and this team will be Saraswati and Shia this will be attainable through three things. Some are the end learning the Beneficent knowledge, he began by by this and there you know,
this is this is a Sharia compliant Sufi say this is not you know, the
was a scholar himself and was a Sharia compliance scholar and always you will find through the books even if you find some hrr or inferences to some problematic statements.
No one is no one is perfect.
But we will always try to understand them will always try to interpret them within our knowledge of chefin Hardaway law this was a very Sharia compliant, knowledgeable scholar of Islam who lived his life
whatever the righteous life, whether the righteous life, so sanada He begins about this, you know, learning the beneficial knowledge well adapted to the environment.
And responding to the caller. Then there is the caller to call someone title
herma is the inviolable sacredness of Allah of Allah subhanaw taala what are the things the law meets sacred, the things that langmead sacred. So, there is a color that is warning you against violating, again, as you know, transgressing or violating the those chromat of Allah subhanaw taala or the things that Allah made sacred, so responding to the color, the color is inside you, it is always warming, you know, stop here, don't proceed, you know, this is you know, these are the bounds of a law limits, a law set for you.
So to Jabba, I apologize. The second one after learning the beneficial knowledge and the third one is soft bottle sila hain, it's the company of the righteous, the company of the righteous will always be sort of like they will always remind you if you forget, and we will always help you if you
have if you become weak or lose energy.
The company of the righteous the thread he said what we lack was Annika Gandhi he had all that and thread holding all of this together is his purging of customs and habits purging is your ability to purge customs and habits and your customers to routine is what
got people in the greatest of all troubles, you know, rejecting the message of the messengers that people get rejected the message of the messengers because in order to have an Allah amo in order to do and we have found our forefathers upon a certain way of Mahir means upon a certain way upon a certain deal in a certain way and we will follow in their footsteps. And that's what they said, you know, this is new to us.
We did not hear this before.
So the ability to give up your habits but this is keep in mind that that's one of our problems particularly as Muslims you know, particularly if you
grew up a Muslim one of the problems is
whenever the whenever you read the Quran, and whenever you hear the you hear the warnings, son of the Prophet says I love you always use the tripod always blocks off the impact of this by saying by telling you or this pertains to price, this pertains to Abuja and Abu lahab.
And then you switch off your intellect and the data bar and the faculty, you know, reflecting and basically heedfulness you switch it off very quickly because you think that all of this pertains to someone else. And that is a problem of our customers. Because you think that you are guided enough like you because you're Muslim, you're guided and all of the talk about misguidance and all of the talk about deviation pertains to someone else other than you and that that is also a problem of our customers or habit. So in order for you to
take heed and benefit from the worst you will have to give up that very thought that very arrogant saw that that we have, that we're guided enough and whatever we read pertains to someone else.
As I said, when when the talking about
you know the different verses that talk about you know, the love for capital and so on whoever it is natural to Allah has revealed or the Kaffir and when they were saying that all of this pertains to many Australia like for the alarm set to them that
what good brothers or cousins do you have in Benny astray? Every sour one is theirs and every sweet one is yours. So every sour area is theirs and every sweet one is yours. So they're they're very good cousins. They're very good brothers number in qualicum banjo is
such good brothers for you because every time if there was an error whenever there is a warning go with a pair of jeans too many Australian or whatever, there's like a reprimand
And this pertains to someone else.
So now inshallah we will begin the chapter on television.
That was the chapter on jacoba. And now we will begin the chapter on Toba or bamboo October.
So shakin Allah said Kerala so gentlemen Lamia to Allah I can move on the moon as potassium of omiana.
Allah mighty said, and whoever does not repent, then it is those who are the wrongdoers and sort of gerat so he excluded the repentant from the description of transgression. You know, so the description, the title of transgressor varlaam applies to everyone except the one who repent among them yet, for Allah
forever does not repent. Those are the two violet moon around doors. So the the board or the board are excluded from this alchemy,
description or quality of voting.
And then the chief said we're tobacco data sample a lab artifacts, them way and tonzura zombie electricity and Shia.
Toba is not validated except after the recognition of one sin. This is accomplished by observing three matters about the sin.
The first one is in hiler, aka medullaris Mati in a tn which is an N.
And if you have the book, please use the translation that I have given you. Because there are some things that I think that you need to refer to this particular translation that I'm sending you in the email.
Because some of the translations, at least to my understanding, are not inconsistent with original text. So he said in hanaoka, mineralised mahina Tatyana your abandonment of Allah shelter when you attempt to the end he attempted to sin when you approach the sin
you will have to remember that when you approach the sin you abandoned Allah has asthma
allows protection law shelter in Philadelphia mineralised mattina at any your abandonment of the shelter of Allah subhanaw taala you exposed yourself to the anger of a lot, you deliberately willfully abandoned the protection of a lie and expose yourself to the anger of Allah and that is enough to make you regretful and to make you concern.
But it may not be just until our criminalized mattina etn it may not be your deliberate walking away from the shelter or the you know, abandonment of a loss filter loss protection, it may also be
the other way around. It may also be that Allah tala
removed his asthma, from you, that alarm removed the protection, because how a lot of remove that protection or that plasma, you would have not committed the sin. Your consideration of the sin to begin with, and you're attentive the sin means that you were far enough at this point that Allah subhanaw taala allowed you to commit that sin. The Lord did not really care for you that much at that point that he lets you commit that sin.
So it's either your abandonment or his withdrawal of his protection. And in both cases, if you think about it in both cases, it is it is it should be a source of pain and regret and in the US think in your heart that when I committed that sin
you know Allah
withdrew his asthma or I abandoned his asthma so it's less man Allah Hassan you are taught us all my life
and whoever seeks a protection in Allah subhanaw taala shelter with Allah subhanaw taala he was
he will use certainly guided to the straight path and that's about Osama asthma is his protection of you.
So that is the first thing weigh on tons of Islam below ferocity, Shia and phenomenalism Athena at&t or fara hookah in the Caribbean
and this is basically a worst sin which is your joy when you when you are attained so
your your your abandonment of the last protection when you attempted it and your joy when you attain that, like you worked for the sin. And when you act when you was able to, you know, when you have it when you gain that you thought you gain that you know how to be here, which is, you know, to win, or to gain the center to attain it.
That's, that's, you know, your thought that you were actually able to get there.
But your very joy in attaining it, and your very sense of accomplishment or achievement that you are able to do. And sometimes we're misguided enough to think
about a complex arena melody in
any one scene, Ensenada will not tell you of the people that are most
suffer the greatest loss actually, and are the losers, the worst losers
in their deeds, those who believe or think that they're doing well.
Come to the anabella sorry, over the hydrocone those who are misguided but they think that their friends are you know, those who are money for Hassan, have you seen the one who's bad deeds have been adored. And that is a punishment from Allah subhanaw taala this very far heart is very feeling that you're bad, the the evil deed is a good one is a punishment for your attempt at the sin. That your your attempt your consideration of the sin and your attempt, you get punished the first punishment. The first punishment is to become elated or joyous be where do you commit the sin, that is your first punishment, and then there will be other punishments. So to fail to repent and repeat
the sin, there will be other punishments, all are solid, it's not like you know, so you've committed the sin. And now, you know,
you're good the next day to work and you will be laid off. I mean, if this happens to you, and this works like a warning for you, and then the new repent, then that without that was, that was a great blessing from Allah subhanaw taala it's not a punishment, but the punishment is actually to make you feel good about the same and make you repeated, and
refrain from or failed to repent from it. So we'll find out who kind of Lockerbie your joy when you attained it.
Which is a worse sin. Like I said, there will always be a stink in the heart of the believer when he commits the sin even when he commits it not after the sin while he's committing the sin. You know, whatever said you may think God no matter how, you know,
it may sound or may
appear to be tempting or you know, enjoyable.
But the true believer will always have that thing in his heart when he commits that sin.
And then he said, You know that's part of the recognition of the sin modified them. He said what protocol is wrong under the rookie my opinion of the natural happy like, and you're welcome to do Callen israr. It is your determined failure for rookies to sit down meaning to inaction to to not do anything about it. RSR deterred while determined onto the rookie to to stop it and or make up for it both. So it is your determined failure to stop yourself from it or to make up for the same that'll kill them. It is the start of ember what you sow, you catch up with the same basically you take control, you take control back of yourself, you know so your your cell phone ammara to suit yourself
that you know commands you to evil. Now, you caught up with it and you got control of it, you were able to grab it stop it from taking you to mahalik or getting you into the structure, you have control now, you cannot now so
basically stop and to make up for the sin. My authentic of another happy like it despite your certainty that unhappy true one was watching you. So after you have committed the sin and you fit you were happy that you
another sin is that you failed to repent and and basically to have control over your lust to have control over your greed to have control over your anger, all our sources of sales.
Okay, then he says was a to Toba selasa to ESEA.
And the conditions of Toba are three things regretting apologizing and resisting another whatever it is, or when a player regretting apologizing and resisting I want to ask you a question. You know, I do like to
basically read the Arabic original.
Do you prefer that I read that before the English or after the English translation? Before is okay. Sure.
know, but But no, but but
it's interesting that all of you said before, that's good.
Is no like, I okay.
All right. So let's, we'll be before that. So he he said regretting regretting about Snowden apologizing that is bizarre, what is basically the system the system from the sin
just looking for the official official.
so sorry to tell
But so the three things here like you remember the conditions of employment. Now we mentioned rational law.
A little bit different, you know, so you have to hear another metal flower, which is another myth regret a cloud is the system from the sin. He mentioned, the third one, that the denominator he did not mention, which is our apologizing environment. Now, he instead of apologizing mentioned what determination not to go back determination allows an outlet out determination not to go back to the set. And then there is a fourth one, that if the sin was committed against someone like a human being, you know, some of the last creations that you see the part of it and the forgiveness of that particular person and he make them up,
pay them back, make them up for the sin that he committed against them. But the three in terms of the sins are the only violations of the rights of a law, not the law rights of his creations. We have three remember now you mentioned which is the thesis, the first one is TVC. This is which is the stop. The second one is the regret. The third one is to have determination not to go back whether or not you go back, but the towel by Asahi ha is valid if you have determination at the time of the trial, but to not go back. Whether or not you went back, your tablet will still be valid.
But Emanuel Holloway is another modality that that is that is the apology, his apology. It's the apologize. And some of the scholars said that apology is a defect and the tober because when you apologize, you are asking for
excuse you're asking to be excused, as if you really have an excuse to commit the sin. But there is another meaning four out of that which is basically just you're showing the oven kisara brokenness, you're showing off humility
and submission to Allah subhanaw taala and fuck the need for Allah subhanho wa Taala if that is what is meant by our desire, then our desire is a good part is certainly part of the tober is an important part of the tablet. It is to ask for forgiveness while showing humility and then kasar brokenness and learning how to do a submission to Allah subhanaw taala it is not to say to Allah,
you know how difficult it was, you know, to refrain from this or to stop myself. You know how tempting that was.
grief is not you know, it's not to say to Allah,
it is your father, it is your decree, it is not to find any excuse, basically to justify your sin, or to you know,
this either alive or to be limited your your offense, your crime, your transgression.
by committing the sin, you're saying to a law that I recognized the magnitude of this thing and recognize that, that you
prohibited that and I committed, but Hi, you're you're showing him, you're telling him that I am weak, that I'm in need of your help to basically recover from this, to recover from this, you're not telling him You created me weak. So that's why I fell into the sin. Because he had not committed he had not basically made any tech leaf.
Make you're responsible liable for anything that's beyond your capacity. So don't say to Allah, keep in mind that this is in your heart, it is not like you're really saying to Allah, but don't have this thought in your heart in your mind, I committed the sin because I am weak. Now you're saying to Allah, I committed the sin, even though it was within my capacity to stop myself to refrain from the sin. Even though you know, I committed willingly and it was my own transgression. But I, I am weak, I need you to recover from it, recover, recover from it. So that's basically your show of poverty and your show of weakness and humility to Allah subhanaw taala not that you're saying You created me
weak. So that's why I fell into the sin. You're saying You created me weak, so without your help, I will not be able to recover from it.
So he said regretting apologizing and the system and we will not get into the you know much of the details.
Are you because this, you know, we can either say that we're talking about Taliban, then we keep on talking about Taliban. Or we're saying that we're talking about Toba from when as an ad in whatever event will always and I would prefer that we limit ourselves to the manager salary so that we don't branch out because if we just talk about whether we can talk about our for several sessions, but we will just limit ourselves less. And then you could learn about coordinating for someone else or the writings of someone else, or from a different perspective at different time.
Then he said well hapa a puto Besa rasa to Shia Falvey Medina,
what the hell matoba wa Taala alipac and the realities of Toba are three things that are removed. gennai. haka, kotoba the realities of towbar three things now the Medina appreciation of the enormity of the offense, to have him and deny his appreciation of the enormity of the offense when you say Tavi mean that means what glorification of him will love the glorification of Allah talim and deny denial is basically an appreciation of the enormity of the denial or your offense. And
there is nothing better than this, you know, to show us the great the enormity of our offensive, the hobbies of others are amazing because he's talking to
the, you know, so and so was talking to him and he's saying to them in macromolecular, Madonna man,
he Fei Yuriko pumila, shout out to Allah rasulillah salam in minimal because you do things that you consider to be so trivial, like thinner than a hair that we use to consider them even more be part at the time of the prophet SAW some of the destructive ones or destructive things. And
keep in mind that the Sahaba were the least
mythical live the least
sort of hyper technical, you know, the kind of is hyper technicality.
So the Sahaba It was not like the Sahaba were stiff. The Sahaba were not really stay. The Sahaba used to joke around the Sahaba used to be you know, used to be a real human beings that they were not
They did not put on in any act of righteousness.
They were truly righteous for righteous from inside. So they used to live normal lives. And they were not excessive and they were not extreme. You don't even hear about Sahaba, you know, passing away when they heard the certain verse of the craft, not because of the effect of that, or the lack of feelings, but because of the greatness of the man, the strength of the man and the strength of their intellect. He has the, the he would
be impacted, but they have great faith in Allah subhanaw taala, in a great
understanding of the deen that they were able to handle all of the feelings, the intense feelings or emotions of spirituality. So the Sahaba were not medically feed cannot come unless you take a look. And as of the last episode
of the alarm, who said, so the camera is hyper technicality. You know? Or do you guys have a better word for?
You know, they can, they can look is when you ask about you know, what, the blood of the flea? Or is that just our magnetic?
Yeah, so what when do you get? Yeah, and
when, when you when you're, when you're observant of major issues, you know, snakes and lions in your heart. And then you ask about the details, small details of technical matters, as if, you know, your, your you're, you've covered it all. And that's what's left
to the 70, my mathema, about
about Michigan happy, because they use the when whenever the sole vegetables or something they will use to wrap it with or tight with a thread.
But that that thread was not part of the original contract, because when you bought you bought this, you know, the wood like one pound of whatever. So that said was not quite so basically used to take it off and return it because he felt that is so the center of my mathematics that someone
does that, you know, if I'm not mad, you know, said who would do that this is just like, the this is hyper technicality, this is just
unwarranted, you know, because it is, it is basically a tacit agreement between you and the seller, that the end, you will wrap it will put it in a bag, something like this.
But then they told them that it is best for them.
And he said if it if that if it is him, then that suits him that that's not a problem. So, because he is actually there, he has that much why he covered that much distance. So he can actually worry about those details now. Because he had shown that much Zoo that that much juara you know, the pious caution, emotion had shown already that much water that if he does things of that nature, that is, so we used to use the ink of each other and someone asked him if he could use his ink when they were sitting, you know, so if he right? And I said to him, we're not there. He said, You and I are not there to be making. Like he wanted to remind him that you probably just have like an argument or
your mother or your spouse or someone and
you were offensive or yell that your mother and you just came here and now you're asking if you could use a little bit of ink.
So he said to him, No, we're not there. And it is important for the person to understand where is he where he belongs, so that it is not a show of piety, if you're not active, is really important. So appreciation of the enormity of the offense. So the Sahaba one of IRA him would recognize the enormity of offenses that are subtle, that are truly enormous, but you don't think of them as enormous as the Prophet saws all upset was one of his wives. You have said a word that could ruin
Or could spoil the water of the ocean. When she described Another one. Another one, it
means being short. And how often do we do this? How often do we sit down and mock people? How often do we sit down and hear the mockery and then just not do anything about we do this right? We sit down and hear people talk about other people or talk about, you know, their negativity or the this or that their lack of this lack of that.
And we don't do much.
We don't know much about it, because we just were afraid that offend
you know, our companion or our jellies or,
or to ruin the gathering, or the spirit, you know, the fun
to end the fun. And these could be, you know, just
enormous in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala, these things could be enormous and the size of a loss.
So appreciation of the enormity of the offense questioning the caliber. Hi, I've translated this as criticizing the Taliban. Just change it in your notes. It is questioning that over at hamato bytes, the question to doubt your toe, but without your help is
probably not the best translation
recognition of the enormity of the same, I just don't see.
No, change that recognition.
I thought that when you appreciate your appreciating, you appreciate the volume, the magnitude, the enormity, the evil? Do you appreciate how evil your your behavior was?
Okay, it doesn't really matter at all.
It doesn't matter at all. You guys understand what it means. Right?
Then you go to your English teacher.
And ask if appreciation could be used in a negative
connotation or not. I can have you know, in a negative way or not. But that's, that's beyond the issue. So let's not get hyper technical with appreciate.
Amaro the low audible when he was wondering what the meaning of effect he happened with a band, so a lot of us and he said themselves, you know, Abby's herbage, you know, or the visitations and so he said, I don't know what up is. And then he said, we were forbidden. When he was asked, you know, in some other reports, who's asked about this? And he was, he said, we were forbidden from peccadilloes. So I get the, I get what Allah wants to say here.
The exact meaning of but but anyway,
if appreciation and really look into this, and if appreciation means something positive all the time, then change it. In fact, if it meant this to some of you that it is better to change,
right? Whether or not because it doesn't matter what it is in the dictionary, or what Oxford Dictionary will tell us.
You know, that's actually a good point. It does not really matter what the Oxford Dictionary will tell us, because at the end of the day, if it meant that to some people, then it will mean to others
the same thing.
So let's change this in your notes from appreciation of the enormity of the offense, the recognition of the enormity of the offense.
feel like I recognize
but is it valid to officiate? Like you say, yeah, this thing is wrong. And only because that's how I started but if it was a parent I would have never seen
you have to hate it itself. Because you know, like, you know, hadoken hot corner house
autobahn emerges to be not a view will have faith the prophets are solid none of you will have faith until his how're his own desire is in conformity with that which I have brought to you, magic to be. So, if your house your desire does not conform with that which the prophet SAW Selim had brought in taught, you don't have complete faith. So you should work on yourself a little bit more and tidier, however, conforms to the teachings, the prophecy was
But, but that is different from basically the lust, or, you know, that's based different from the natural love that you have for
wealth or that
agree that you have inside you
have your natural instincts that human beings have
less than temptations. And so
but it is basically the complete recognition of the evil
that is what I'm saying that you do have the tendency, the natural tendency,
you're saying that you appreciate them and in this way, the word they appreciate really sounds map
because appreciation of the them or loving the them itself. Like
if it is a deficiency,
now like someone
having like, basically
a haram unlawful relationship with his neighbor,
he, he may be driven to be driven by last.
But if he does not recognize that this act itself is bad and evil,
he has a problem.
He is driven by lust, but he must have full recognition that this act itself is bad and evil. It is ugly.
Yeah. And then the third one he said here about the realities of Toba. He said appreciate the recognition of the enormity of the offense, the questioning the Toba and finding excuses for the creations tala Khalifa, and finding excuses for the creations and we will, you know, will take the next seven minutes in in explaining this because this is important to explain. And we will stop there, and next time we will start from the secrets of the realities of Toba.
He says that the realities of the Toba it is that recognize the enormity of the of the offense the question your Talbert always question the validity of your job, the weather your tempo is really true, real or not. And the last one is to find the excuses for the creations and that could sound a little bit problematic and it may have it may have some problematic connotations because of something that is general anxiety would say afterwards in this chapter.
It is finding excuses for the creation. Basically, I may have told you that Schiphol Ansari does not really sort out the difference the or not sort out the difference does not acknowledge the difference between rehab band and era between with the likes and what Allah wills so even though he was very opposed to the Imam Ahmed Hassan Al Assad he in his column regarding the support of a lot of the attributes of a lot, but he does have
he is influenced by job by you know,
pre determinism, Japanese.
We will believe in kata. But But Jabra is basically
can't even translate this as pre determinism. Because if things are pre determined then predestined but Jabra is is
exaggeration and disbelief where you do not recognize that human beings do have
enough, free will to be accountable like that they do have a will of their own, they do have a machine and I'd rather of their own and that what Allah subhanaw taala. And also the the other side of it is that Allah decrees things that he does not desire, law decrees things that he does not love, or decrees things that he does not love does not like.
But the failure to acknowledge the difference between that which he likes and that which he decrees, well will make you consider everything that he decrees
to be liked by him, because Have you not liked it, he would have not been freed. And we said that he may not like it, but still decreed for a greater purpose that we may not completely comprehend. And sometimes we comprehend parts of it. And we gave an example
of how you may or another time have you made this like something against and still
willing to happen.
So here, you're not going to find excuses for the creations through through the concept of Father, because that is what it could mean here that you will basically
And he's not saying that you find excuses for yourself, but you're finding excuses for the creation,
that you will look at this,
eventually as something Allah had decreed, and that is, you know, and then you look at people's sins as something that Allah had decreed, and then you excuse them for their sins. And if that is what it means, then it is wrong, we always have to have good thoughts, even if we are
pushed into, you know,
accepting some of the explicit or clear implications of email and Harvey's writings, but given who he was, and then we will have to have good thoughts and reinterpret whatever could be problematic consider it to be just ambiguous and reinterpreted to be sound in meaning, how do we reinterpret this in light of what we will also in light of what he will say later, how do we in turn reinterpret this, to find excuses for the creations
basically, to find excuses for the creations of Allah subhanaw taala, in the sense that
you will have enough humbleness and enough humility, your sin will make you humble enough, that you will not be basically too critical of them, when they commit a sin.
And you will basically make dua for their survival for their salvation, for their recovery from that same, because you have committed a sin. And it is like you know, it keeps you keeps you from self righteousness, it is to say to yourself, do I have the moral capital, to be that critical of them, not only as individuals, sometimes as, as a community also, you see in our community, on our men,
in our the rows, we always exercise this, you know,
sometimes we exercise, you know, a lot of self righteousness like communal righteousness, where we can then speak from the
heart, absolutely. The where we can then other communities for this or that.
And we have the same troubles, too. So you ask yourself, do we really have the moral capital to condemn
this or that other religious community when we have the same problems, and that sounds very hypocritical, and that is
part of our viral family. Try find excuses for their creations.
There that emanated from your own sin, your own sin taught you to be humble. Your own sin broke you
It made you broken. So you're not finding excuses for them
against the law, but against yourself. So the process of selling, never found the excuses for people then basically
forgive them for violating the bounds of Allah that He did not, you know, failing to hit harder, more luck and I said the message and when the bounds of a law are violated, he would be the most angry. He never avenged himself. I said, but when the bounds of allowance violated, he would be the most angry because for the bounds of Allah, the prophet SAW didn t say have been forgotten about Mohammed Khalid, Mohammed stole I would have cut off her hair. Did he not get very angry with Osama when he tried to intercede and he is the beloved son of the Beloved, when he tried to insert intercede for a woman like a noble woman from price
to be to not be punished for theft? He got very angry with Sam, as far as he hadn't been who do they lie? Are you interceding to basically start
a habit or a punishment of a loss. But when it when it came to himself, he did not avenge himself, he would even sometimes find us al Qaeda itself, the execuse people for what they have done to him. And this is hobbies that's reported by others. A Hadith official reports the premise of the low annual report by the mammoth from Anasazi alone when it is Hassan or sorry, it is an acceptable, reliable, according to the scholars of Hadith, wherever said haddam to rasulillah salam went up new cemani seen in haddam to Astra Sydney high started to serve as a messenger of Allah when I was only eight and I've served him for 30 years. Family harmony, Allah say in otft, he Allah de, he never
blamed me for something that befell him for harm, some harm that befell him from my sin my side or from my end, or because of me, for him. lemony bajo de Colorado, if some of his you know, family members blamed me for something that I did, he would say that Oh, for in Hello, can I say on filopodia say on like, in Kobe, once again, leave him alone had been decreed it would have come through, you know, so he did not do this. Why didn't you do this address? So the professor Sam would say to them, leave him alone had it been decreed it would have come through, you know, had it been meant to happen, it would have happened, you know, with or without us. So, here he is finding excuse
even further, who he said you don't execuse people, you don't use color to excuse people because that eventually will make all of us equal for an hour and Moosa will be the same because it was the creed for for our need to be treacherous, and evil, and it was the creed for Muslims to be righteous, and a prophet. We don't do that we don't use color in this to basically exempt ourselves from accountability. No, but we still could use color, to show humility, to refrain from self righteousness to not be too critical of people. The not add to execuse people when the wrong the wrong doing was against us, not against the law against us. So if someone fails, you, you say had
been decreed it would have come through and you forgive him, but you don't say you know, it was the creed for for our to be treacherous and evil. So, you know, so if you're not finding excuses for for our against the loss of Connaughton, is that clear? Okay, so, so that was the end of today's session on Toba and next time inshallah, we will start from the secrets of the realities of Tao busara are happy but it
will take seven minutes so that we can have
15 minutes for the next lecture. So any other stuff
