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

salatu salam ala rasulillah

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

today inshallah we would have

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


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

we will have

00:00:17--> 00:00:21

like usual two sessions. First one is on fiscal year The second one is on

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

in fiscal year we are going over government as it is at the moment however we are rocking a whole lot harder

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

and in fact we are going over get alarmed by an amount of Ghana Rahim Allah Allah

00:00:43--> 00:00:45

first in Ischia

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

Allah seven Babu to slim the chapter on this theme or surrender.

00:00:52--> 00:01:02

He said Kala Arabic Allah mirana hatanaka McAfee Masada rabina Hamza Mariah GOP unfussy him Harada minocqua, vittoriosa, Lima, Lima,

00:01:03--> 00:01:34

Allah Almighty salt but no by your Lord, they will not truly believe until they make you judge concerning that, concerning that over which they dispute that which they dispute over among themselves and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in full willing submission or surrender in full willing surrender.

00:01:36--> 00:01:45

So what do you send him with his Lima That is why in a moment haha we mentioned this particular verse, that they will have to surrender completely.

00:01:47--> 00:01:51

That's Lima. Here is an adverb from you said Lim

00:01:53--> 00:01:55

and usually this type of

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

construct which is afforded not luck.

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

Usually it's used for emphasis

00:02:04--> 00:03:01

or clarification, or to discern, you know, the further the sermon or highlight the meaning of the verb. So, when you say limitus Lima, a lot of not only say was a limo, but Allah said as Lima. So, to America, you know, the the mention of an affiliate must look after the verb in this case is for emphasis. And also that is why when when the translator attempts to translate something like this, the translator will have to add some emphasis, the emphasis that was that was added here is full wedding submission. When you say limit asleep, the emphasis is full submission, full surrender, unconditional surrender, unconditional surrender to the messenger sallallahu wasallam.

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

Now, we will talk about the definition and the classification.

00:03:08--> 00:03:16

But certainly we want to ask ourselves, if we have this unconditional surrender to the messenger subtle audience.

00:03:17--> 00:03:59

While we are talking about this, we we will have to say that this unconditional surrender is not meant to be unconditional surrender to anyone to any interpretation, to any school of thought, to any position to any scholar, any safe, but to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, and even when you have unconditional surrender to the Messenger of Allah, you would want to clarify what the messenger said to yourself before you act on it. So to ask the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, and the Messenger of Allah so someone tells you something that you have

00:04:00--> 00:04:26

some ambiguity about like you're not clear on it, it would not be counter to this theme, to say to the Messenger of Allah, What did he mean by this? Is that what you meant? That is basically asking for clarification, that is not be in opposition or anything that is just asking for clarification, short of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, you may go as far as saying

00:04:29--> 00:04:48

I respect almoradi alojado so much, but in this particular issue, it seems that mas was right. Where this particular issue, it seems that they are the lower on who was basically

00:04:50--> 00:04:57

closer to the truth. has more evidence on our side has more you know,

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

you know,

00:05:00--> 00:05:17

Basically substantiation of his position from the upper end and the sun. So, this this leap is not the slim to your shape, it is not the slim to a particular position, it is the slim to Allah and His Messenger, full stop.

00:05:18--> 00:05:36

And then now, that does not mean that you will not have respect for me, I have respect for the elders respect for the respect for them, certainly you will have respect for for all of them. But the truth is not limited to any one of them.

00:05:37--> 00:06:24

The truth is not confined in any particular method, although you may follow one doesn't have because this is as much as you can do as a public like as a commoner or a lay person. This is as much as I can do. But you know deep in your heart, that the truth is not confined, except in the words of Allah subhanaw taala, and the words of the messenger sallallahu sallam, even when it comes to the Hadith, the scholars of Hadith or when it comes to the Quran, this is this is not one we like that when it comes to the authority of the transmission of the Quran. There is no dispute whatsoever on the authority of the transmission of each and every word of the Quran.

00:06:25--> 00:06:27

Each and every word of the correct.

00:06:29--> 00:06:44

All the work that we that is left for us is contextualization, basically understanding to understand the reasons of the revelation of a particular verse. What that does, what did that verse mean?

00:06:46--> 00:06:49

Someone just sent me like a question about

00:06:50--> 00:06:53

a law saying, Yeah, Latino men are allowed to do that on the

00:06:54--> 00:07:05

bottom earlier about, oh, you believe don't take the Jews and Christians were bothered about that they are aware of each other. First of all,

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

who what is required of us when it comes to this leave, because the idea of the sleeve itself, we have to understand what it means when it comes to the sleeve, we have we have we have to have felt asleep, to the word of Allah, to the instructions of Allah subhanaw taala folk asleep. But keep in mind, that you should not have food to sleep,

00:07:30--> 00:07:34

float asleep, to your basically

00:07:37--> 00:07:42

understanding of the area, unless this understanding is a matter of consensus,

00:07:44--> 00:08:29

then you have to have focus leading to your understanding of the idea. Some people think that having booked asleep means that you have full asleep to their understanding of the no this is not what it is, for the sleep is to the clear. You know, instructions have a lot one of the islands that have no ambiguity, or a Hadith of the Prophet SAW some of them that are completely clear and have no ambiguity, a matter of consensus, should anyone can test the prohibition of calm, should anyone can test the obligation of the five daily prayers, the prohibition of slander, backbiting, and so on. These are things that are agreed upon, we have to have full asleep to the things that are agreed

00:08:29--> 00:08:32

upon. But when it comes to an area like this,

00:08:33--> 00:08:34

you know,

00:08:35--> 00:08:44

the reason why someone sent me this message is that I basically posted something about me as

00:08:46--> 00:09:30

you know, deep understanding of the the power and the sun or sort of exquisite understanding of the Sharia and the objectives of the study on the foundations of the Sharia. So, you know, when the doctors were advancing, however, they may have motivated everyone rulers and commoners public masses, to conform to the Tatars and how when they arrived he fearlessly and heroically fought against the totters, that you know, as a scholar, as like an older scholar, you would expect them to be somewhere like a foot soldier or something. He was one of the horsemen on the right side, in the front

00:09:32--> 00:09:55

and the fearless the fight against them, but the same person, when some of the scholars tried to justify their acceptance of working as judges for the doctors when the doctors were in certain areas and certain times were in control. And some of the scholars wanted to justify working for the authors.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

So you will you would expect someone like me

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

Lamia rockin Hola. I'm female Rahim Allah who was so like

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

sort of

00:10:11--> 00:10:22

sort of motivated to stop the fitna of the theaters and the fight the theaters and to end the fitna completely. And he was

00:10:23--> 00:10:27

basically not doing this, but just by word, but also by action.

00:10:31--> 00:10:43

To not excuse those scholars for working for the doctors, as judges, or as amounts or whatever positions, whatever posts the accepted.

00:10:44--> 00:10:53

But he found those scholars, not only to be executable, but he found those scholars to be

00:10:54--> 00:11:10

right about the reasoning, he approved the reasoning, because he said that the doctors are now if they are now in control, and those scholars take a, you know,

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

take those posts accepted those posts, they'll be able to be a buffer between the, the masses and the authors. So they will limit the harm of the authors that will trickle down to the masses as much as they can, they will, they will basically serve the cause of justice within their capacity, as much as they can. And certainly justify this by giving examples from Yusuf Ali, his Salah, working for the Egyptian King, who was not particularly Muslim at the time in the DRC. Working despite the fact continuing to be a monarchy royal, despite the fact that he was not able to impose

00:11:52--> 00:11:57

the rules of Sharia or laws of Sharia because his people have not converted

00:11:59--> 00:12:51

and so on. So someone felt that there is a problem here. How could he say this? How could he accept of the Tatars of the Muslim scholars, to work as judges for the Tatars when Allah subhanaw taala says, in a manner that episodio donousa Alia bottom only about oh believe don't think the Jews and Christians for they are the only of each other. And I wanted to say that our understanding of this verse, how do we understand this verse? Many times he understand this verse without knowing why it was revealed. Many times he understand that this verse based on a translation of someone's someone felt that the word that earlier means friends, does the word. truly mean friends?

00:12:52--> 00:13:17

That's no that's, that's controversial. Someone could say that this is part of what the you know what part of whether friendship is part of it, but this is not it. You know, you can't really translate it as friends and then you go from there. And even if you take out the Even if you say Aurelia means political allies, means allies.

00:13:19--> 00:13:34

But when it comes to alliances, when it comes to allies and alliances, then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam talked about Hanford for the the alliance of virtue. And he said that I was invited to join this alliance of virtue.

00:13:37--> 00:14:10

In the house of revenue, Diane, and I have a if I were to be invited to it, Alliance virtual is basically to defend the oppressed, Southern alliance between certain chiefs and provide that they will defend the oppressed no matter what this takes, even if it takes fighting for the oppressed. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam value this helpful for the moon, the alliance of virtue, whether it was called The for loop because it was about virtue or for Google because there was many people called the

00:14:12--> 00:14:48

park, partaking in this covenant. That's a different issue, but it's called the alliance of version. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, If I were to be invited to a seminar Alliance, after Islam, I would accept, I will respond, meaning that I would get into an alliance with that different people, Muslim and non Muslim, if this alliance is about virtue is about virtue is about justice, serving the cause of justice. So in order for you to understand that, as I

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

said earlier, don't take them as allies. You will have to contextualize it you will have to understand that you even have to add this hobbies also.

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

You know, you will also have to add

00:15:05--> 00:16:02

to this idea that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent to his Sahaba to the abyssinians. He asked his Sahaba to migrate, to seek refuge to seek asylum went the opposite is he sent them to Albania for asylum? And if you are an asylum seeker, aren't those people you're earlier? To some extent, not only are we here, this is not an equal relationship. You're actually they are here in a position of authority. And you are seeking refuge with Christians, you know, the Christians of Albanian with the Christians of Amazonia? Isn't this a form of what I did in the Sahaba even help in a dashi when people rebelled against them, and they were fighting next to an agenda he basically put down the

00:16:02--> 00:16:06

rebellion against them because he was a just ruler.

00:16:08--> 00:16:20

Even though the the establishment around the Natasha whether as an adult she had the point, accepted Islam or not, but the establishment around an agenda, she was all not Muslim.

00:16:21--> 00:16:33

They were Christians. So you'll have to add this piece of information. Then you will also have to add other pieces of information, you know, when it comes to

00:16:34--> 00:16:43

particularly political alliances, didn't amaravati alone who get into a political alliance with Benny targeted? Ben Ben Whittaker live

00:16:45--> 00:16:47

it's a it's a Christian tribe.

00:16:48--> 00:16:55

tribe that was Christian, still Christian, by the time of Omar Ebner photography alone.

00:16:57--> 00:17:46

And most of the Christians keep in mind they were not suppressed or anything, some some orientalist, they'd like to think that because the peninsula is has no Christians anymore, that these people were crushed. Absolutely not. We don't, that's an absolute lie. Most of the Christians, because of the wide spread of Islam in the peninsula, they decided to emigrate to either Iraq or a chef to either up or sell, you will find them prosperous communities and a lot of and Sam and Sam, at the time, the migrated were still under Muslim rule. They were still they were, they were already under Muslim rule. So it's not like they migrated to a different land that is not controlled by Muslims, they

00:17:46--> 00:18:04

they migrated to lands that were under Muslim rule, but most of the Christian tribes of Arabia migrated up north to Iraq and Sham, maybe for Economic Opportunity may further be maybe for this or that, but but they extend migrated to other places under Muslim rule.

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

So when you say when

00:18:09--> 00:18:14

I got into an alliance with Betty a targeted bandwidth, they were fighting with armor.

00:18:15--> 00:18:17

And then they said to armor

00:18:18--> 00:18:49

since we're fighting since we've joined your military expeditions, now, we you, you drop the jizya you don't take a GCF from us. So Amara poptop agreed to calling jizya zeca. And to take in Zach at the equal that's a cat he made Ben otakon if they were Christians, he made them pay zakat, he called the jizya for them. And that's if that makes

00:18:50--> 00:19:00

a difference for you. If that makes you more comfortable, if that makes you happier, if that makes you more loyal to the state to the Muslim state. We'll call it

00:19:01--> 00:19:34

we will not we will not call it dizzy. This is a political alliance with people that are Christian. So how do we understand the reality in America technically hold on Assad in light of all of this. And if we're talking about friendship, if we're talking about kind treatment, friendship is about what kindness, courtesy and so on. The prophets also don't allow that Asara of Iran to come and stay in his Masjid and sleep over in his nest. And according to two more salary reports that could basically

00:19:35--> 00:19:40

reach the degree of vaccine or hassane.

00:19:41--> 00:19:55

Reliability, their reliable reports. He allowed them to pray inside his mustard because when the when they are his guests, they are they're using as mastered basically as

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

place of recommendation and he would not allow you will not

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

disallow them from praying. So he allowed them to pray inside his Masjid. And they were facing, you know, the east, inside as much as you know, so they're not facing is facing their own pablor and praying, and he allowed them to do this. So in light of all of this, you will have to understand that there's various. So there's various in light of the above would not mean friends, first of all, because earlier is really not just friends, our means allies, but in light of the profits, or some approving of alliances with non Muslims, if the alliances are for the cause of justice, and in light of our mode of getting into alliances with non Muslims, including Christians, then it must, they

00:20:47--> 00:21:35

must have understood this idea to mean something different. They must have understood this idea to mean that we don't take them as allies against the Muslims against the cause of justice or alliances, instead of the Muslims in place of the Muslims, we will have to understand this area, in light of everything else, not in isolation from everything else not in isolation from the where the traditions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So if you understand that and understand that, within this context, you will understand it well. And in this case, the ayah does not contradict whatsoever, it may have a misunderstanding, Rahim Allah, that if the total were in control the eyes,

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

the eyes are about something completely different.

00:21:39--> 00:22:30

accardi that is working for the doctor, that is accepting the post of Allah or being a judge for the Tatars is not taking the Tatars as earlier in this case, he is trying to minimize the harm. You know, he's trying to be a buffer between them and the masses to minimize the harm that will afflict the masses, by having an unjust judge working for unjust rulers. Can you imagine an unjust judge working for unjust rulers, hat would be disastrous for the masses. So this part of the have enough compassion, to sacrifice his reputation, working for the others as a party, that sounds very ugly, doesn't fit doesn't fit, you know, for a Muslim scholar, to accept the post of being a judge and

00:22:30--> 00:23:18

work for the territories as a judge. Sounds very awkward, very ugly, just like, but the epitome of having good thoughts in a line trusting Allah subhanaw taala means also that you trust these good servants. So having trust in the good servants of Allah, he felt that these people are sacrificing. Some of them may have not been, some of them may have been doing this for personal gains. That's, that's true. But that does not mean that all of them are doing it for personal gain. Some of them may have sacrificed, you know, their reputation, to basically minimize the harm that will befall the Muslims, it is out of their compassion and out of their good understanding of the deen that the good

00:23:18--> 00:23:37

understanding of the dean means minimize the harm, try to minimize the harm. So I wanted to say that the concept of this lean, because young people in particular thinking that the concept of this leave is that whenever you hear something, you rush, to act on it, without understanding

00:23:38--> 00:24:08

without understanding the instructions. You know, after you understood the instructions, because we talked a lot about how the Sahaba responded spontaneously, you know, and to the commands of Allah Subhan Allah and His Messenger, who was the instructor, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam himself. I mean, do you need anyone who is more trustworthy than the prophet SAW Allah, to submit to Him, and to surrender to Him? And then who was a better teacher than the Prophet is not

00:24:09--> 00:24:10

a planer

00:24:11--> 00:24:34

instructor like an instructor that is plainer and more sort of simpler language that has no ambiguity whatsoever, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was the best instructor. So the who were the bad, you know, who wouldn't you know, whose Arabic was, you know, perfect. You know,

00:24:35--> 00:24:59

flawless, the sahabas. Arabic was flawless. So these are the Sahaba who have flawless Arabic. And knowing that context and circumstances listening to the prophet SAW Selim, the best instructor and the best teacher, absolutely. They need to surrender spontaneously and they need to rush like we have seen them. But for us, when you hear yourself do something

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

You do need a you owe to yourself, you owe it to your community, you owe it to your dean, to, to

00:25:09--> 00:25:50

verify, and investigate, and figure out if this is really what it is, if this is really what it means, if this is a matter of consensus, how do we apply this within our current circumstances, there needs to be work done before you sort of surrender, because that basically withholding yourself from surrendering gear is not failing to surrender to Allah. It is just wanting to verify what did Allah actually intend? or What did Allah what is Allah asking of me?

00:25:52--> 00:26:08

You know, here and in this area, or this hobbies, so this is important, this theme is this link to Allah and His messenger. And ultimately, it is this lead to Allah because the messenger only conveys

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

a message to us.

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

Then sex ed will fit the slim your secret, you are tough. We've met Cody minella halen

00:26:18--> 00:26:25

amendment how do we recommend a lot Tyler died in the year 480 after his era in Herat.

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

And his his grave is still there in Afghanistan. He said, What if this levy or flippity, what we call the minella, Ellen tasleem, which is surrender has the same flaws of Fleet delegation and direct code reliance. And we did explain this before, what are the flaws of delegation and reliance, our code and we'd or the food and

00:26:52--> 00:27:48

the flowers and dedication, reliance, which is like this theme is that you have you are thinking, you know, that you actually own anything, or possess anything, to hand it over to delegated to basically count on Allah subhanaw taala regarding that which you own, or that which you possess, that is the problem. He's saying that you don't own anything to delegate it to Allah, it is all his. So when you delegate to him, you're delegating, you know, his to him, his, you know, possessions to him, and that's not delegation. So don't think that you're more forward. Don't think that you're delegating. Because whatever you possess, whatever matter that had befallen you that you wanted that

00:27:48--> 00:28:09

again to Allah Spano Tata, the fact that you're delegating means that it means that you thought that you have any control you have any ownership any positions, and then now you're saying to Allah, I count on your, I delegate this to you, but you you you have no ownership of anything, including yourself, your urine is

00:28:10--> 00:28:58

so that's the flaw the flaw in these things. But like we said, just you know, understand the simple facts, an act upon the simple straightforward facts there are some subtleties, some intricacies that the shake highlights and that's the benefit of reading you know, a book like this book by a chef who does understand the subtleties and intricacies. So when he points these things out to you, he's not wanting to detract from the importance of the fleet or reliance he's just telling you that they have some flaws watch those flaws. Don't when you rely on Allah don't think that you actually own anything. And then you delegate it to him because you really don't own anything and you're really

00:28:58--> 00:29:06

under his control whether or not you rely on him, what he decreed will come to pass whether or not you count on him.

00:29:08--> 00:29:14

Then the shift says well, who am an honor that agility super Dylon sanity data.

00:29:15--> 00:29:59

This sleep is it is of the highest levels and the path of the commoners and it is three levels woven out at the depths. So what Ilana said as he got a job it is of the highest levels in the path of the commoners and it has three levels. Why is he saying that this is the highest what are the highest levels in the past of the commoners What is he wanting to say? He says that the stream is not one of the highest stations for the elites. And hasa because of hasa are already done with this test lien what first lien is the handover to surrender to handle over the house or do not have any

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

illusions that the own anything to hand it over to Allah subhanaw taala the hearts are beyond this, he says, transcended this.

00:30:10--> 00:30:13

So, it depends, you know at a

00:30:14--> 00:30:25

time also discusses this and he says that that is the is of the highest for according to tie into steam is the of the highest Stations of the elites.

00:30:26--> 00:31:11

And the difference between them is basically the difference in form and not in substance. So, at the moment, however, we may be talking about the slim as perceived by the commoners tasleem as the commoners perceive it, which is that you handover something to Allah subhanaw taala, the hausa transcend above this, the first above this because the costs are no, or the elites, no, the elites, the seekers, the elites of the seekers. So the elites of the seekers know that they don't own anything to hand it over to Allah subhanaw taala it is all his. But it may also mean that at the moment Allah we seize any station that is short of the ultimate peak for him, which is funair,

00:31:12--> 00:31:14

self-annihilation, to be

00:31:15--> 00:32:12

short of that peak, to be short of perfection to be less than perfection. For him funnel, which is self-annihilation is the peak, and anything on your way to find out is short of that big, he is imagining that if you want if you will reside in the station of asleep, you're still thinking that you are there. And that you're still thinking that there are two entities hear you and Allah and you are delegating to Allah and you are handing over things to Allah, you're still seeing yourself, seeing yourself in the Bible, Harvey does not speak about finance, like the heretic, speak about finance at a moment however we know that knows that we exist knows that we are very creations of

00:32:12--> 00:32:45

Allah subhanaw taala but self-annihilation for him the passing away of the ego for him is when you stop seeing your ego stop seeing yourself you know, even though you literally you exist, but you will stop seeing that because you are distracted by your vision of Allah subhana wa Tada. So, there is there are no two entities here. There is no mutual bilateral relationship, because you are not there. It's

00:32:46--> 00:32:55

and that is that is what he wants to say here, that if you still believe that you're handing over things to Allah, you're still not there because you're still seeing yourself

00:32:57--> 00:33:10

and then he says it is three levels of Bharata to the stream I use masaba Kala wilhemina live cast lemo may use a moto Mesaba hermina

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

What does this mean?

00:33:14--> 00:33:16

Just leave it as standover

00:33:18--> 00:34:02

or renounce may use a hammer or coal that which clutters the intellect. Mim savarkar Allah our ham of that of the preconceived notions or conjectures, our habits, conjectures, Sabbath, you know preceded the preceding conjectures minimum guy above the unseen translation of the whole phrase means the renunciation of all cluttering preconceived mental conjectures concerning the unseen or the advanced creation of all priests preconceived conjectures that clutter the intellect, concerning the unseen

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

Meaning what?

00:34:07--> 00:34:58

You have preconceived conjectures How have one preconceived conjectures about many things, many people have preconceived notions of conjectures. If you fail, fail to present those out of your mind and allow the revelation to reshape preform your mind then your mind is cluttered user habit or put your your intellect is cluttered and is unable basically, to be reformed to be reshaped to be refilled with the guidance of the revelation. Take for instance, if you go to a biology class, for instance, and you keep on hearing about evolutionary keepa and then

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

evolution in biology in particular, you go to Dawkins, class, and then you sit down.

00:35:09--> 00:36:04

After like a few weeks, you started like, it's too much stuff that you're trying to fight off. So this lean is basically to reject all preconceived conjectures. Keep in mind, we're not talking about a conflict here between the revelation and science. We're talking about a conflict between revelation and philosophy. Because most of what is being promoted as science is actually philosophy. You know, not science. Allah said Mashhad, Tomoko personality and aguada How can you see him or quantum Leonardo, I have not made them witness the creation of the heavens and the earth, nor did I make them witness the creations of themselves and I would have not taken the misguidance as aids or

00:36:04--> 00:36:21

assistance. So, a lot of not, you know, he did not have as witnesses when he created the heavens and the earth and when He created man, a lot of not, you know, bring us and ask us to witness his creation, whatever we

00:36:22--> 00:36:33

whatever we say about the creation and the beginning and all of these things are conjecturing it is fine for the scientists to make presumptions and so on and so forth.

00:36:34--> 00:37:14

But the scientists that basically try to confuse the educated they confuse that space between science, empirical science and philosophy are this artist the it is really this artist and you will find them suppressing the discourse to an extent that is almost as tyrannical as authoritarian regimes, you will find in educational institutions, that you they suppress the discourse. You think that these people are aspirants, they're the these are the people that

00:37:15--> 00:37:23

they're their counterparts and the past would have been burning people in ovens that that can test their worldview.

00:37:24--> 00:37:34

But they act like you know, the impartial you know, sort of open minded scientists, but they ridicule any

00:37:35--> 00:38:09

variant worldview or any variant convictions to an extent that is extremely tyrannical And not only that, they suppress it and they fight it and they, you know, alienate people who have such views. So, Schiff here says, This is very relevant to us, that all of the things that will clutter Your mind will prevent the revelation from reforming your mind, reforming your intellect and your mind will now be cluttered.

00:38:10--> 00:38:16

And it is it is hard, basically, to accept, you know,

00:38:19--> 00:38:20

the revelation or

00:38:23--> 00:38:39

to accept what the Revelation tells you about the unseen and he particularly started with a guide, because if that is the thing that is unseen does, it is right to us, it is unknown to us, the beginning of creation, how you know, life came about,

00:38:40--> 00:38:54

and all of these things. And also, when it comes to other issues, like he didn't do it, for instance. Yeah, dude. Dude, that story of you do dumb dude. A Gaga Magog

00:38:56--> 00:39:09

causes a lot of people discomfort, because where are those people? Where are those people? Keep in mind, you know, one thing that you will have to

00:39:11--> 00:39:27

slim here also, there is this space between the apparent implication of the program and the developed understanding of the scholars over the years.

00:39:28--> 00:39:43

Who is looking for nine? And who are you using Jude? And what is the whole story and where are they hiding? And where is this dam that was built? And are they still behind that?

00:39:44--> 00:39:45

And all of those things.

00:39:47--> 00:39:59

Keep in mind that there is a level of sleep that is required of each and every one of us. We have to believe in a God and may God because they were mentioned in the Koran

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

We have to believe in our name. And we have to believe in the exact statements about Docker nine in the Qur'an. This is someone who went out west went out east and he went to this place that was like, sort of

00:40:19--> 00:40:37

an area between two mountains. And the found those people that asked for his help to build a sort of like a dam or fence or something between them, and a Gorgon Magog because they were you used to basically conquer them and

00:40:38--> 00:40:41

just oppress them. And

00:40:42--> 00:40:54

so this is as far as we must all, Sarah, you know, believe and we must surrender to this. Now, to surrender to more than this, which is,

00:40:56--> 00:41:08

which are the hobbies that talk about a Gaga and Magog that's another level of surrender, that is not the same as surrender to the out of the corner.

00:41:10--> 00:41:24

Keep in mind that the Qur'an was transmitted with complete certainty. Each and every word in the plan was transmitted with complete certainty that our hobbies with care were transmitted with what we called what. So

00:41:26--> 00:41:52

yeah, people are gonna run their hobbies that are equal to the power and strength in transmission are called the multilateral hobbies. And those have been transmitted to us by a clean certainty, you have to believe in those hobbies, but the number of hobbies that have been transmitted to us by our work, which is the continuous chain of narration,

00:41:53--> 00:41:56

the number of hobbies is

00:41:57--> 00:41:58

is way less than 100

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

that have been transmitted with the same strength like the Parang, which is the strength of the water.

00:42:06--> 00:42:47

And it varies, some of the scholars will put them at like 200 300, but it is in that neighborhood, you know, somewhere between, you know, less than 100 all the way to 300. The rest of the Hadith were transmitted to us by Roberta's done, which is the propensity higher likelihood and we are bound by those hobbies we must act upon those hobbies. Even though there is a possibility, they did not come from the profits of the lies, there is a possibility of mental possibility. And the vast majority of the scholars of

00:42:48--> 00:43:13

the scholars of gam can sever those are these cannot be certain in transmission there is a disagreement over the agreed upon a hadith that are reported by Bukhari and Muslim or the Hadith that are in Bukhari and Muslim and whether their transmission was started or not, some of the scholars and some of our great scholars

00:43:15--> 00:44:12

from Allah was one of them, believed that those Hadees came to us through certain transmission, the majority of the scholars have also had the scholars of PETA believe that these are these came to us through gala better than which is propensity. So, when we talk about this theme here, we are talking about this, this theme that is demanded of us required of us, because if we start to take, you know, after the scholars of Hadith, examine the this heritage, and after they sorted out for us that which is reliable from that which is unreliable, you know, they sorted this out for us, if we as individuals start to pick and choose from that which they call the reliable and we if we started to

00:44:12--> 00:44:15

say I will take this versus that.

00:44:17--> 00:44:45

That that will be sort of that would have disastrous outcomes is disastrous consequences for Islam. Can you imagine? We sit down and say I'll take this how do you not take it that is okay. I will take the Hadith that talks about her being for cause I would not take the Hadith that talks about the time of Zohar being

00:44:46--> 00:44:52

you know, from the Sun reaches Zenith, or the

00:44:53--> 00:44:55

walk the zoa. You could

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

wear Do we have any D left

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

It would be disastrous. So that is unacceptable. We must act upon those bodies that are called reliable by the scholars that are agreed upon by the scholars to be reliable, we must act upon them. Is there still room? To think that there is? Is there a possibility that this did not come from the prophets of Salaam? Yes, there is a possibility. Our surrender here is different from our surrender to the art of the Quran, our surrender of the to the other of the Quran is absolute. Absolute this, there is.

00:45:40--> 00:45:54

But what is absolute is is to the apparent meanings of the out of the the basically the definitive, not just the apparent the definitive meanings of the app of the correct

00:45:55--> 00:46:07

answer, if you have some discomfort in your heart, about the Hadees via Juju, Juju, or cotinine and so on and so forth. Does that make you Catholic?

00:46:08--> 00:46:12

Or if no, if no, it does not make you get

00:46:13--> 00:46:49

that does that make you a good Sunday? No, it doesn't make you a good son. To be a good Sunday, you do need to surrender to the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam even though there is a possibility that that one particular Hadith may not be from the profits of the lesson web it applies, it applies to everything around you, you know, can you like if you would only read and benefit from a book that is that has only certain information,

00:46:50--> 00:47:08

if you like like a physics book, that only has certain information beyond any doubt, you will never read physics, you will never learn physics, if you make that condition, you will never learn anything, you will never benefit from anything.

00:47:09--> 00:47:21

So tasleem varies between the PR and between the hobbies, the different levels, the authenticity of the hobbies also are

00:47:22--> 00:47:23


00:47:26--> 00:47:30

Now, if you are unable to surrender to

00:47:33--> 00:47:58

keep in mind that the station of the sleeve is a beautiful station. Because even if you have this comfort, let us say you want to figure out who the nine is, is you're having difficulty with this issue. Some people are telling you Alexander the Great was nine some people are telling you it is Cyrus the Great was the top nine

00:48:00--> 00:48:24

and actually Cyrus the Great would be the closest to the current line. So if if if any of the historical figures, you could certainly say a lot did not say it in the core ad, I would just you know, keep it to the minimum I would just believe it or not I was a king the described by Allah subhanaw taala in the Quran or hero

00:48:26--> 00:48:36

who had these powers and so on. But I'll just stop there, how not go beyond this. But if you wanted to go beyond this, Cyrus the Great would actually

00:48:38--> 00:48:39

chorus or chorus

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

the the piece is the founder of one of the Persian empires, what would be the closest to that?

00:48:49--> 00:48:54

And in fact, if you go go to Wikipedia and look at his picture

00:48:56--> 00:48:59

on Wikipedia, he does have two hordes

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


00:49:03--> 00:49:07

despite the fact that this was 500 years BC.

00:49:08--> 00:49:15

So huge distance between him time between him and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but he did have those two words

00:49:17--> 00:49:27

on the picture and Cyrus the Great also it was likely it was like the a believer, not a disbeliever

00:49:29--> 00:49:32

although this is controversial, but he was likely a believer.

00:49:33--> 00:49:59

Now if you have some discomfort, and should you try to remove that discomfort or should you say to yourself, I enjoy that station asleep. I have this discomfort. I did not figure this out. I have this escape. I have this problem. It's unresolved in my mind, but I enjoy

00:50:00--> 00:50:38

The station of this lien to defer to Allah subhanaw taala. I have so much certainty in my Deen I have so much certainty that the one who is speaking to me in this book is God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth. That discomfort that unresolved problem I have about this story. I enjoy having this because it's a test of the stream at us that is the keep in mind that everything was understandable to us. And everything was easy to comprehend, made sense to us. What would there be any tester there?

00:50:41--> 00:51:33

There would not be a test, there would not be a test of this Lima test of surrender to Allah subhanaw taala to defer to Allah to acknowledge you're sure you're, you're basically your defects, your weaknesses, and to defer to Allah to the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala This is a beautiful feeling. They say, this is an unresolved problem. And you should be candid about you know, because sometimes what we do is we try to like make up stories and so that you can convince yourself to convince everyone, when it is not actually honest, it's not true. But it is a beautiful thing to say to yourself. This is an unresolved problem to me, I will surrender to what a lot told me about it,

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


00:51:36--> 00:51:38

and just make this leap

00:51:39--> 00:51:57

until I have comfort, like I don't have time to investigate it. And I investigated. And Allah guides me to that which will give me complete comfort. Can the sisters do this with the hadith of nakazato Claudine,

00:51:58--> 00:52:19

you know, the Hadith, women having like, or what the prophets are sort of talking about, not sadaqa with the, or the deficiency, intellect, and the we did explain this hobbies in detail before, and hopefully you had comfort with with the explanation.

00:52:21--> 00:52:34

And we did talk, you know, I explained that, you know, this is not about you and your husband, you could have a lot, you could be a lot wiser than your husband, you could be a lot more pious than your husband.

00:52:36--> 00:52:45

There have been times in our history, where had it not been for the women, there would have not been a slap, you know, Islam would have not survived

00:52:47--> 00:53:36

in many, many countries, but if you consider this hadith to be a compare at group to group to group comparison, so comparison, group to group, this is not individual comparison between a woman and you know, women and men on an individual basis by group to group comparison and you say for instance, maybe Ibrahim Mohamed and they gave way to that side. And even though I am much wiser and more pious than my husband, and humble and this and that, but maybe Ibrahim Ali sarabah Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, Muhammad alone would have been enough, would have been would have made the scale of men

00:53:37--> 00:53:42

outweigh the scale of women. If you put Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam alone, on that side,

00:53:43--> 00:54:04

he would have outweighed, you know, he outweighs all men. So he would have outweighed this guy, this the scale of women, maybe you wanted. But if you say to yourself, Hi, I'm still not comfortable, this issue is still unresolved to me, then,

00:54:05--> 00:54:13

then I invite you to join the station of this lead, basically to surrender.

00:54:14--> 00:54:18

Keep in mind that I told you that this is not transmitted like the courier.

00:54:19--> 00:54:30

Is there a small possibility the Prophet did not say 0.1% maybe. So it's not certainty like 100% like an eye on the Quran.

00:54:32--> 00:54:34

But since since

00:54:37--> 00:54:53

since the propensity you know or is is the higher likelihood, the much higher likelihood we're talking about, you know, much higher like the prophet SAW some of them said it because it isn't authentic, how these scholars have hotties considered reliable for us.

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

Basically to believe in and act on then if you are

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

problem with it say I have an unresolved problem, but I will do to sleep. And then you will have

00:55:08--> 00:55:24

you know about this theme that is like very, very appealing but with this theme is like better than the comfort of this theme. Surrender is like the comfort, the comfort of certainty, may be the comfort of certainty is a little bit

00:55:26--> 00:56:14

greater than the comfort of this leap. That is why Ibrahim Alayhi Salam said to Allah subhanaw taala Bella would actually have made Nickleby. Now, I believe, but I just want the the assurance, some assurance for my heart, I want more assurance for my heart. So but I even wanted to see how Allah subhanaw taala resurrect the dead for more assurance, it did not mean that Ibrahim did not have certainty. How could they not have certainty? You know, when Allah subhanaw taala got him out of the fire? When he How could he not have said he had certainty. But he wanted more about video in the comfort of certainty. So yes, we want to learn more, we want to figure out the kernighan and the

00:56:14--> 00:56:43

superhero to do Jim, must as much as we can, to come to the point of this bar, in the comfort of certainty. If we cannot have the comfort of certainty, at least to have the comfort of test lead, surrender, say to yourself, unresolved problem, I will surrender to what the prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Whatever he meant, whatever he meant,

00:56:45--> 00:56:51

must have been wise and must have been good and must have been true. So just borrow

00:56:52--> 00:56:53

this theme.

00:56:54--> 00:57:20

So but between the two stations of this theme and up which one were you? Which one do you prefer? Maybe a pain. But if you can have the theme, then this theme is prescribed for you to surrender is prescribed for you. So unclutter your intellect from all pre preconceived conjectures so that you could refill it with

00:57:22--> 00:57:26

you know, the revelation. And then the sheikh said what is on?

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


00:57:32--> 00:57:45

What is it now your valuable Theosophy inside the one workplace on submission to the decrees that are counter to logical presumptions concerning the change of conditions or change of states and division of shares.

00:57:46--> 00:58:12

He is saying to you now that you have accepted what Allah subhanaw taala told you about the unseen, whether you have figured it out and came to certainty or whether you have still unresolved problems about the mercy of the dead, or Jews or Jews or, you know, the, you know, whatever the prophets of Allah subhanaw taala told you about the unseen, you you reach certainty or you make this leap, you surrender.

00:58:14--> 00:58:23

Then next, this is that you surrender to the decrees that are lots of plants, that that are lots of pinata,

00:58:24--> 00:58:42

or the camp of Allah, the universal decrees of Allah subhanaw taala that take place in front of your eyes that unfold in front of your eyes, you will see things that are counter to logical presumptions, you know, we have a proverb, very bad proverb in Egypt, which,

00:58:44--> 00:58:47

which says he did have a little bit of that.

00:58:48--> 00:59:20

Which means that he gives earrings to people who have no ears. He, Allah gives earrings to people who have no ears. So some people mean by this, some people are, you know, they mean nothing, you know, most of the people actually don't mean anything, they just, they're just repeating, but it's not really a good thing to say. Because that's questioning the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala. But sometimes you You see, you say to yourself, like someone for instance,

00:59:22--> 00:59:23

you know,

00:59:25--> 00:59:36

someone who would say, Well, how come you know, my wife dies at age 50. And this woman is is 85 or

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

she is still alive and she's still, you know, quite healthy and you know, quite perky.

00:59:46--> 01:00:00

Why, why should this happen? These y's are very problematic, it means that he did not have this lead. Sometimes you see the rise and fall of nations, the rise and fall of people even allows divisions of

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

When it comes to spiritual states, you see that lots of you see someone who may look much less pious. But you see the lots of 100 Allah had favor them with Cara map and favor them with a when states

01:00:17--> 01:00:18

you know that

01:00:19--> 01:00:21

we're not talking about someone who's whose was

01:00:23--> 01:00:24

outwardly wicked

01:00:26--> 01:01:04

because you will judge him by his outward actions, but you will see someone who is like when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to the lower end when you see ways of normal and corny ask him to make dua for you. Now, Omar is in mahabis, in model him the Canon abune body like Anna Omar had there been a prophet after me it would have been Homer, he is a prophet is letting him go and ask why some and why some nominal Kundalini is this man who had like, you know, skin disease, the shepherd out in Yemen, that is not even Sahabi did not see the profits of the loss and

01:01:06--> 01:01:49

all of that, and then Homer is told go and ask him for it. So, here you will make the sleep. These these are the shares that a lot divided a lot divided those shares, whether these chairs are provisions, power, status, or even, that while the religious states the spiritual states, Allah divided, everything unlocked, give everyone what they deserve, according to the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala, complete surrender to this, you have to have complete surrender to this surrender to the law is not surrender to the future of thought, because you do not know the future of

01:01:50--> 01:02:19

surrender to the power of surrender to the present of the era that did unfold in front of you surrender to the future, that is intending to accept them. When they be when they arrive, intending to accept them, that is your surrender to the future, or you're trying to fight of all harm. Your Your son is sick, your son has fever, you want to take your son to the doctor,

01:02:20--> 01:02:48

right, you have an exam, you want to study for the exam, and then when the other four befalls you, then you intend beforehand to accept it. And when it does before you, you're ready to accept it because you have made the the work of the heart has already started. I will accept whatever comes I will accept it, when it arrives, you will be ready to accept it.

01:02:51--> 01:02:54

And then as you accept what is your meridian Roku bill?

01:02:56--> 01:03:31

And what a jab at him, are you fuzzier or more reedman, Roku better while engaging conditions in states that are frightening to the seeker to engage? Now if you have to slim to Allah and in order to live the best Disposer of affairs and you surrender to Him, you engage conditions, you know, like when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sent the Sahaba to confront the Romans, you know? Can you imagine, you know, going through the desert marching through the desert, severely under resourced, severely, you know,

01:03:32--> 01:04:20

exhausted, outnumbered everything and marching through the desert to find the Romans. That would be huge. So Roku is a very much more Edamaruku better, where engaging conditions and states that are frightening to the seeker is basically a result of this lien that esteem of the Sahaba made them accepting of that and made them engage those conditions. Then she accepted that as a 30th. A slimmer the enemy will cost slimmer the enemy in hand will cost the inert gas for us we're happy to defer knowledge to state to defer premeditated goals to disclosures and to defer forms through realities.

01:04:24--> 01:04:25

What should I do?

01:04:28--> 01:04:30

Okay, I'm just gonna speed up.

01:04:33--> 01:04:35

Okay, I'm trying to dispute

01:04:36--> 01:04:39

just leaving the element you don't have to defer knowledge to one spiritual state.

01:04:41--> 01:04:53

What does he mean by this? The first knowledge the state state is your head. It is your spiritual state and it is your though it is your your intuition, intuition that's leaving.

01:04:54--> 01:04:59

You surrender knowledge to your state. That looks very

01:05:00--> 01:05:44

Scary, right? Because knowledge should govern. Everything should not be ruled by anything. And your faith and your intuition should be governed by knowledge, that the chief is not telling you to allow your state your spiritual state or disclosure govern the knowledge of the revelation. But the shape is telling you that the knowledge of the revelation alone will not get you to where you want to be. The knowledge of the revelation alone will not get you to where an insightful heart is necessary for the application of this knowledge, how many people have knowledge of Syria, and they don't have

01:05:46--> 01:05:51

tariqa kilala they don't have the way to Allah subhanaw taala

01:05:52--> 01:05:57

paves the way for them, they have the information, but they don't have the way to

01:05:58--> 01:06:45

the knowledge, what the secret is called not as of heavy approach is more effective caliber, which is the knowledge of the heart, not the knowledge of the intellect, it is essential that you let the knowledge of shehryar this is what the chef means. We know she could have, he was always a Sharia abiding scholar, you know, never deviated from this video. What the chef means is allow this knowledge of Sharia, to go through the insight for the heart, the hand, the spiritual state, you know, to go through a pious insight for the heart, so that this knowledge of Sharia can bring about the desired outcome. If you don't allow it to go through the insightful pious heart and the

01:06:45--> 01:07:20

01:09:14--> 01:09:17

is for him to say that he is so.

01:09:20--> 01:09:59
