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

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam are so loud he was offering him

00:00:06--> 00:00:11

a lot today we will go over Babel to sum the chapter have taken shelter

00:00:14--> 00:00:24

in the Manasa serene session and then in the following session for the second worship session we will talk about the rulings of wiping on

00:00:25--> 00:00:26

socks,

00:00:27--> 00:00:31

leather socks and non leather socks.

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

So,

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

we know a lot I was gonna say shut up because a lot of some of the word of the song itself is just attached to them.

00:00:48--> 00:01:03

But the moment we sat here in bed without the sound of the chapter of taking shelter, or the loss of gelato generosity will be heavily laden with data for Roku, Allah subhanaw taala said that hold firmly to the root of Allah subhanaw taala

00:01:04--> 00:01:06

and do not be divided.

00:01:07--> 00:01:10

And then he said well possiamo will live

00:01:12--> 00:01:41

forever moto lmsc Moto Z mobile live horn will come and hold fast to Allah He is your protector called fastball law he is your protector and the translation here even though this is our first demo and this is a placebo. So, when it comes to handle, when it comes to the role of Allah, then I think the translation would be appropriately hold on or hold fast to

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

the rope of Allah.

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

By the left assignment self

00:01:48--> 00:02:00

love assignments itself comes from asthma which is protection also means protector asthma means protection. And in my case,

00:02:03--> 00:02:12

you find it the lexicon of Murphy's Law which tells you the roots of the words and where they come from and what the imply and infer.

00:02:13--> 00:02:14

He said out

00:02:15--> 00:02:19

loud, Hassan has those three things

00:02:20--> 00:02:21

protection,

00:02:22--> 00:02:34

holding grasping, protection and nervous and all those three things are very applicable to this topic today. It is grasping,

00:02:35--> 00:02:42

protection, and near this so the three letters, I in sub mean

00:02:43--> 00:02:53

those three letters, that is what the in for the inferior Nereus in for protection, and the inferior grasping.

00:02:54--> 00:02:55

So when we talk about love,

00:02:56--> 00:03:01

versus love to somebody, when we talk about happiness,

00:03:02--> 00:03:10

which is holding fast to the role of Allah subhanaw taala as Allah said, authoritarian run, holding fast to the rope of Allah.

00:03:12--> 00:03:42

That is different from the sound Villa which is taking shelter in a love taking shelter with a law taking shelter with a law office mobile app. So a better translation for our policy mobila although it's the same word is take shelter with Allah. So tassimo de la holdfast the rope of Allah grasp the rope of a line hold fast to it, and then while fussing with law, take shelter with Allah.

00:03:45--> 00:03:59

Because like I said, the word is not can be about grasping and can be about protection and here protection It is not that you're that you will be the protector it is that you will be seeking

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

that protection.

00:04:03--> 00:04:06

So of course he will be happy to learn he

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

Jamia

00:04:10--> 00:04:12

what would be the rope of Allah subhanaw taala time

00:04:16--> 00:04:39

Qur'an and the sun would be the rope of Allah, the sun, I've had different interpretations of the rope of Allah subhanaw taala. And certainly the puranam the sun would be the most prominent of those interpretations of a hyperbola. And certainly the setup would agree on this. It's just the setup used sometimes to give

00:04:40--> 00:04:41

sort of

00:04:43--> 00:04:51

examples that are not basically comprehensive in their interpretation, they would just give you like an example of what this means.

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

What one of the meanings of this would be such and such, such as when I have not best talks about it. He talks about it, almost

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

The minute Jenna would have knocked bass interprets in a manner which is trustworthiness and he says it was limited Jenna to take a bath after being, you know, after ritual impurity to take a bath. Well, someone may frown on this and say, you know, you really limiting and Amanda trustworthiness to that very little, just saying, well, he's he's not saying that this is what America is all about, he is just giving you an example of where it applies, like a practical example. It is basically that you're the only one who knows that I'm doing a job. And then you take in the Muslim means that you have that you have commitment like that you have sincerity like that, that you have read that

00:05:48--> 00:05:56

whenever. So the Abdullah gives an example of what it means. But this is not a basically

00:05:57--> 00:06:24

like a word for words, or interpretation, or explanation. So here with that set up, when they talked about hospital law, they talked about different things around and this and that will be of these things for sure. And then shut up when he wrote his magnificent book about Assad, which which, which is holding fast or grasping or holding on to the Quran and the Sunnah of Qatar was similar.

00:06:26--> 00:06:28

This was a book primary

00:06:29--> 00:06:37

entirely, like an anti better book, anti innovation book, because by the time I'm shocked to be live,

00:06:38--> 00:07:13

which was in the eighth century, a century after hedra, the Buddha had spread so much in the Muslim world, that we have become very divided over our practices, because, you know, every sect, every group of people, they started to have their own separate practices and we drifted far away from the Quran and the Sunnah and the way of the Prophet and the companions, unrighteous predecessors. Because of this innovation, inevitably, innovation will lead to departure from the sun,

00:07:14--> 00:08:06

just by the mere competition with a certain forget about contradiction. Forget about conflict, just by the mere competition with certain because, you know, your lifetime will not be enough to live up to all of the senate of the prophet SAW silent everything, the prophet prescribed everything the Prophet pointed out to us as good and practice himself, your lifetime will not be enough to basically fulfill all of that to live up to all of that. So any bigger any prey will compete well with the center and take up your time, take up your effort, take up your energy, so that for some habits that have the law here means the milestones to diamonds, all of the milestones, the guidance,

00:08:06--> 00:08:32

you know, can we say the Prophet himself is part of that? Absolutely. In Quran and the Sunnah. You know, the prophet the first generation, the practice of the righteous predecessors a milestone guidance after loving the Massoud said habla and America. Why, once again, he is not saying that Allah is not a Quran and the Sunnah, he's just saying that habla is also an Gema.

00:08:34--> 00:09:09

Ultima means the mainstream stream or the main bulk of the believing Muslims, it does not mean mainstream, like you basically measure the public practice and you find the point in the middle and you say that this is the middle, you know, so you measure public practice of all of the Muslims, and you find yourself a point in the middle and you say that, you know, this is moderation. That doesn't work this way. It's not it's not geometric like this, it is basically you know, the main bulk here is the main bulk of the practicing

00:09:11--> 00:09:59

believers, the main bulk of the practicing righteous believers, the main bulk also of the scholars of Islam, because the knowledge is important in this regard, knowledge is important in this regard. So the law means hold fast, grasp the milestones, be watchful of the milestones on the path to guidance or on your on your path to Allah, for your journey to Allah subhanaw taala set up many milestones for you, you know, hold on to the poor and hold on to this and hold on to, you know, the drama, the mainstream, the mainstream of the Muslims in your time and, you know, hold on also to the you know, guide

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

sub directories predecessors how they approached and understood and practiced, you know that the deal now righteous predecessors, the first three generations primarily the first one, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu s and now that is about to some habit and then he moves on and he's pulled to another area, which has to do with a lot of some of the some of the largest taking shelter with a loss of Massimo Villa, who can take shelter with a lot, he is your protector is your protector.

00:10:37--> 00:10:42

here how best as a as a protector and as a helper.

00:10:46--> 00:10:50

So a person will hear when when you talk about them to some biller

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

after

00:10:53--> 00:11:42

somebody gives a different meaning, you know, it's not exactly like Lata Sunbrella here it is about taking shelter with a loss of Hello Todd, taking shelter with a loss. I know Tyler, because on your journey to Allah subhanaw taala you need guidance, right? milestones. But also, this is a very individual journey. This is a very lonely journey, what ends up in journeyers need protection and energy power to complete their journey. It's not only that you need guidance, but you also need protection and you need power and energy to complete that journey. And holding fast to the rope of Allah subhanaw taala even though if you understood this to be in the most comprehensive way, you

00:11:42--> 00:12:32

know, and then you hold fast to the crown with your not only with your intellect or your knowledge but also with your actions, then it will include everything, but you know, a person who will take shelter with Allah gives an edition of meaning which is that you need those milestones on the path. But also you need power and protection you need energy and protection to complete the journey. And that is one classy move in law. So find that energy find that power find that protection with a law look for it with a law and take shelter with Allah subhana wa tada Psalm here is different from Strv, even though they are synonymous, the either when you Tao was beloved car with a biller, what

00:12:32--> 00:12:49

does it mean? What does our beloved mean? Because we often translate those a bit louder is the others were taken seeking refuge with ALLAH subhana wa Tada. And then of Islam, it is also about taking shelter. So what is the difference between alpha salmon is

00:12:52--> 00:12:57

the salmon str that there are differences between the salmon str the na?

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

Yes.

00:13:04--> 00:13:27

Yeah, yes, exactly. So that is one of the differences to some a refers, although the arts anonymous, although the word that the language itself would not lend this to you. But the the issue here is that in usage, and implication, there are some differences.

00:13:29--> 00:14:10

As the artisan is petitioning for protection, is appealing to a law for protection petitioning for protection, asking, requesting seeking protection from Allah subhanaw taala. But remember, I said in the lexicon of Matthias and lava, he said that has to do with nearing this grasping and protection, protection through Nereus is a song. It's protection through narratives, taking shelter with a law. Do you imagine that someone who's running away from law would be taking shelter with a loss of appetite? Or that someone who's distant from a law, you could still imagine that someone who's distant from a law makes the either

00:14:12--> 00:14:45

you know, your distance value, you're saying protect me that could work, although you're not showing you like that you deserve it, but it instead work. It's just petitioning for protection. And even if you're this then you could petition for protection. But after some talks about you, you know, working for that protection, taking shelter with Allah, it means what taking shelter with Allah through nearness, to have closeness to him. So it does

00:14:46--> 00:14:59

imply that you're working for that you are coming close that you are getting near to Allah to take shelter. How do you take shelter when you're out? You know when you like how would you take shelter from the rain if you if you stay stay?

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

out

00:15:01--> 00:15:13

what you have to walk in to take shelter from the elements. So that is one of the differences between autism and

00:15:14--> 00:15:36

STI, between the Sun and the skies. Although is that disarm also includes petitioning? And why does it include petitioning, because your work would never be sufficient, you understand that inherently you are incapable of taking shelter without him allowing you to take shelter without him giving you the power

00:15:37--> 00:16:00

to take over without him opening the gates for you, and allow you to come in, you know, for shelter. So the sun does include also petitioning because in the your work your your attempt at nearing this, you're working for closeness will never be sufficient without his help.

00:16:03--> 00:16:43

So then, the song we have Lila is holding on or holding fast to the milestones to guidance upperhand the sun, the prophet, the companions, the writers predecessors, the way they understood that the approach that practice that and the demeanor of the muslimeen around you, the pious practicing believers who are around you, those are all milestones to guidance, and then what are the some bit Nam would be taking shelter with Allah subhanaw taala which would imply coming close and being near to him?

00:16:46--> 00:16:47

Then,

00:16:48--> 00:16:51

you know, how are we talking about Lhasa to some of the cabinet level in

00:16:53--> 00:17:01

Morocco, the emirate holding firmly to the rope of allies about adhering to his obedience while being watchful of his command.

00:17:02--> 00:17:03

So

00:17:04--> 00:17:42

that it which means adhering to his obedience moeraki ban the empty while being watchful of his command, with loving and revealing observance of his command you are adhering to his obedience not because it's your habit not because it's your comfort zone. Not because you're afraid of losing your status not because of showing off, you're adhering to his obedience, because you are watching his command lovingly, and respectfully. Watching the command of a lot.

00:17:44--> 00:17:55

And every command, you know, is met with Seminole altana every command was met with basically compliance.

00:17:57--> 00:18:00

submission, and every prohibition is met with

00:18:02--> 00:18:12

abstention, because you are watching the commander, you know, that is what matters the most, that who commanded you

00:18:13--> 00:18:43

is is at the center of your observation, your attention. So that that is why he said more optimally, I'm re watching his command because sometimes you adhere to his obedience just because it is your habit or because it's your comfort zone, or because of many other inferior goals, but he's pointing out to you that you need to do this. Out of watchfulness revering God loving observance of his command.

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

And then this also means what morality but namely you're you're adhering to the obedience watching this commit, that you'll always be insensitive to his command, you're always trying to really understand what what he wants to view. So you're really you're adhering to the sun, you're looking for correctness, you know, obedience alone, you know, is like shouting a lot bad you know, like, the about the worshipers who are not informed who are not knowledgeable, may

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

be maybe very inferior, or not maybe a very inferior, but may be fully you into say, into innovation. Obedience needs to be coupled with this watchfulness of the commands of Allah subhanaw taala so you're watching for commands this this includes both both pillars of both conditions, prerequisites of acceptance of philosophy, what about sincerity and adherence to the sun? So you know, pay attention to this because the chef is very precise.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

Mahabharata he Morocco, polyamory Morocco Vania.

00:20:00--> 00:20:57

adds a lot to one half of our authority, which is simply adhering to his obedience. And then he then he says, what are some of the law what karate and kolima? Whom what the hell no. So men could later added what are some of the law who are karate and Kalima home, taking shelter with a lot is through transcendence, beyond all illusions, taking shelter with Allah is about transcendence, beyond the above all illusions, what does he mean by illusions everything else other than Allah else, you know, the the Sufis, they have the some sort of special lingo. So, hence the call this Essaouira has seiwa means what? See what such except such such and such, you know

00:20:58--> 00:21:08

illa seiwa, you know, it is first if not for exclusion, so, say why it means, you know except, so, has

00:21:10--> 00:21:11

the mean an email of it.

00:21:12--> 00:21:31

And the name here means anything else. So, whatever they mean as silver, whenever they mentioned as silver, they are saying anything else other than Allah subhanaw taala. So, now, Who here is a silver, any

00:21:33--> 00:21:45

seniors is my home is an illusion. Now, certainly the unionists, what have you and or the people who believe in it had which is, you know,

00:21:46--> 00:21:59

completely blasphemous, believe I would take this to mean that there is no existence that this existence is an illusion, that this is just like, there is no reality there is no,

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

he's just trying to say that compared to a laws existence, your existence that is self insufficient, that is, you know, that has a beginning, and transience in the sense that it has a beginning, not necessarily in the sense that it has an end, but even your your subsistence, beyond this life, beyond the life of this world, is contingent upon him is dependent upon him. So, given that it is dependent upon him and given that your instead of insufficient and given that you are

00:22:38--> 00:23:30

limited, in all regards, your existence is like an illusion. Like an illusion. This is a, this is an average Shay, who believes in the names and attributes of a lie, who believes in SQL who believes that other lies above his throne, who wrote about this, who who fought for this his entire life. So I must understand this word, this, you know, statement through his entire legacy. This is a chef who wrote a book about the Mad cat, Mr. Lee, you know, this is an FHA, who believes in his buddies and the names and attributes of a lot of believes that Allah is above his throne separate from his creations, then I must say, you know, understand his speech through that entire legacy. And that is

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

the larger context that we must not ignore the larger context, there the can text is not just one thing, there is limited context, there is large context, larger context, and so on. So if you want to understand the statements of a scholar, understand them through the largest context, what was what was he about what is his legacy?

00:23:58--> 00:24:05

As a shave, so he is not saying that we don't have our existence is unreal.

00:24:06--> 00:24:11

But he's saying that compared to allows existence,

00:24:12--> 00:24:27

the fact that it is transient, like you have a beginning, the fact that you are creation, he brought you to this existence, and your existence at any point of time, is completely completely dependent on him, completely dependent on him.

00:24:29--> 00:24:59

Makes you almost an illusion, makes all of this creation, all of this existence, all of the universe, and illusion. That real, the true one ad hoc is Allah subhanaw taala, who created us all, so transcending beyond all illusions, means that you are taking shelter with the Creator, the own the sole protector, creator, maintainer sustainer

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

helper. And so

00:25:03--> 00:25:10

then he says what the homeless woman colita does. And I'm not going to go back and talk to you about that. And, you know,

00:25:11--> 00:25:27

we may come back and talk about this issue in detail. But I don't want to repeat this every time. But it is extremely important because you will need to get this down very clearly and correctly in your mind.

00:25:28--> 00:25:34

So that you don't have a problem reading books of this nature.

00:25:36--> 00:26:12

And then he says what the homeless that is on Bella taking shelter was the last panel Tada. It's about transcendence beyond all illusions, and then at the homeless men correlated, which is reddens from any hesitation, rather than from any hesitation throughout the reservation or hesitation reluctance. So basically, a heart that has no certainty and heart that has no togetherness, the heart of that is not focused on the goal, the ultimate objective, and the ultimate, the final destination is a heart that is torn.

00:26:13--> 00:26:17

And a heart that would always suffer from hesitation.

00:26:49--> 00:26:54

Limited hesitations, unlimited. If you don't, if

00:26:56--> 00:27:26

you can imagine a heart that is not set of the final destination will always have unlimited hesitations about everything about every pursuit, you know. So, these are this is not just reluctance between the true one and the illusions, the you know, between the life of this world and the eternal, between good and bad, you know, that this is hesitations, even with every pursuit in your life, you will have visitations

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

but, you know, have believer would have, you know, like a little

00:27:34--> 00:27:55

checklist, you know, is this you know, the first thing is it had a, you know, I have to check this off first had that or not have not had, that we're done, you know, move on, forget about and then the next thing is this really, is this really

00:27:57--> 00:28:30

best for me, best for my relationship with Allah subhanaw taala bring me closer take me farther away Is this a distraction within that, you know, frame of mind you will be able to rule out many things and you will be able to have focus and clarity. So, the homeless man could literally do basically acquiring certainty, certainty and ridding yourself of all sorts of hesitation and reluctance.

00:28:32--> 00:28:33

Then he says what are the some

00:28:35--> 00:28:39

of the some of the armory but how bad is Islam and designer?

00:28:40--> 00:28:47

He says taking shelter with Allah is three levels, they are the sum of the masses, maybe the masses is

00:28:48--> 00:29:01

maybe I should use some other word for it other than the masses, because the masses does have some negative connotation he does not mean to be a little more than he does. Maybe he could use the public purse message

00:29:03--> 00:29:03

do you think

00:29:08--> 00:29:20

he means just the generality of the practice and Muslims versus the select few versus not that the topmost across the cream of the crop?

00:29:21--> 00:29:22

The layman

00:29:24--> 00:29:30

Well, he does not mean the moment and that because the layman may refer to someone who's not knowledgeable

00:29:31--> 00:29:38

but arm as for him the AMA in terms of the rankings on the path.

00:29:40--> 00:29:43

The path of devotion not necessarily

00:29:45--> 00:29:49

knowledge but anyway in our unit you understand what he means that Armand

00:29:50--> 00:29:51

lamb is the

00:29:53--> 00:29:59

the generality of the people the public, and in hospital would be the select few and army

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

The beginner is on the path alarm are the beginners on the past two devotion and costs are you know the advanced seekers and hospital costs which which is basically the elite of the advanced seekers

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

or the most elite of the advanced secrets not the elite is the most elite of the advanced secrets.

00:30:25--> 00:30:36

So, the he then he talks about how to seminar on time says that this that he talks about an armor because the shape is basically is always

00:30:38--> 00:30:40

almost like

00:30:41--> 00:30:53

the concept of fernet has a grip on him like a very hard to grip on him. So unless you are basically seeking that funnel or self annihilation

00:30:55--> 00:31:12

piece, he's not seeing you as a hassle. But in all honesty, if you if you had here today conditions of what he calls up the Salama, which is basically the autism of the public.

00:31:13--> 00:31:16

You will be of the topmost

00:31:17--> 00:31:19

of the select few.

00:31:20--> 00:31:31

If you truly sincerely and devoutly adhere to these conditions just for that he mentioned the B conditions for the beginners. Listen to what he says

00:31:32--> 00:32:27

about this conditions for the beginners now to some of the masses by the revelation, you are taking your holdfast to the revelation now that is uncovered. But cover is this lemon with submission. What is iron and compliance of iron is basically sort of submissive compliance. It is compliance with humidity, like his eye on either Missouri and like you're compliant with humidity with humbleness and humidity. So you are, you know, holding fast taking shelter away in the revelation holding fast to the revelation with complete submission and compliance is this nominal desire, but as the filati worldwide? How do you do this? By believing the promises and the warnings of Allah subhana wa tada

00:32:28--> 00:33:00

believing the promises and the warnings, if you don't believe in the promises and the warnings, if you do not hear him for a paradise and fear from the Hellfire, it will be extremely difficult for you to comply with the alamiri one nine in order to stay worldwide. without believing in the promise and the wording. It is extremely difficult to comply with an M and N E or the command and the prohibition

00:33:01--> 00:33:22

00:42:24--> 00:42:25

levels,

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

which is the level of a hassle artesanal has been in Qatar, what is the possibility side, the two next the two following levels now is at the southern castle, which is the artists on the taking shelter.

00:43:04--> 00:43:10

have a word about word elite of the elite. And the just the word of the elite, the

00:43:12--> 00:43:20

the elite of the elite. I wanted to use the word elite, but I was afraid that it does have some negative connotations,

00:43:21--> 00:43:40

doesn't it in our times the word elite has negative connotation. If we're talking about it from a different perspective, we're not talking about it from the worldly perspective of being elite. But it became sort of state, you know,

00:44:05--> 00:44:30

So, he says that the sound of the select few is by complete dedication, I translate in Qatar which is detachment as dedication, because this is ultimately what is meant you detach from you tend to cut off the world so that you can attach yourself to God so that you could connect with God. So I call the dedication, but maybe I should have left it as detach.

00:44:32--> 00:44:53

Because it's because in the next phase, he will talk about communion and identify lifted as detachment, maybe it will be better understood. So what are some of the select few is by complete dedication? Literally, he said that detachment that's detachment from a sliver of the ends other than a loss.

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

And that is, he will tell you now that some of the costs are disallowed.
