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

salatu salam ala rasulillah

00:00:13--> 00:00:28

inshallah, today we have baba baba which is the chapter on humbleness and in the second session we will have the burial and graves, consoling the family, visiting the graves, good deeds,

00:00:30--> 00:00:37

doing the deeds on behalf of the deceased and given them away to the reward away to the deceased.

00:00:40--> 00:01:06

So, first amendment how do we recommend a law set in Minnesota submit in his book Minnesota Senate in Barbuto chapter on humbleness palasa, Jen, my battle Romanian Lavina m Chanel out of the Havana Hello mighty sad, and the servants of the Most Gracious are those who walk on the earth and humidity and humidity with other will be used what he translated as humbleness or humility.

00:01:08--> 00:01:12

And I saved humility for for another station.

00:01:14--> 00:01:17

So we will use humbleness for tomato.

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

So chef Rahim Allah

00:01:26--> 00:01:35

said that audio or any other other laboratory selected, Huck, he, like I said before, he usually starts with a definition,

00:01:36--> 00:01:47

the description of the station, the station of tallada, or makhana, tado or babyletto, that that station is one of the most important stations, particularly for us.

00:01:49--> 00:02:00

Because we tend to have, you know, it is one of our greatest failures. And one of the greatest causes of failure for us, is our arrogance

00:02:01--> 00:02:05

and our excessive self confidence. And

00:02:06--> 00:02:19

that's not unexpected, particularly for younger people that is usually common prevalent. And if the environment around you also is conducive to such

00:02:21--> 00:02:35

attitude, then, then that is something that you want to be paying more attention to, because the environment breeds it. The environment promotes it and us.

00:02:36--> 00:02:40

Self Confidence per se is not necessarily bad.

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

And it is not necessarily

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

an evil trait.

00:02:48--> 00:02:51

But it is often excessive.

00:02:52--> 00:03:32

So, we'll start by the definition, the description of the chapter of the station of the author, and then he will talk about the three levels. He said and the definition of todo todo el apoyo de salud ad hoc humbleness is for the servant to give into the might of the truth. humbleness is for the servant, to give in to the might of the truth. Consider yourself to be always consider yourself, your ego, your egotistical desires to be always in conflict with the truth. Right, because sometimes we tend to

00:03:34--> 00:03:48

sort of wishfully think that we're always on the right side, we're always on the side of the truth, which is probably a delusion. Because if we're all on the right side all the time who's on the wrong side.

00:03:50--> 00:03:56

There. So but let's say upon deceives us more often. Our enough's.

00:03:58--> 00:04:20

deceives us often. And we usually think that we are on the right side. But Todd, what he said is that you get when you submit, you surrender to the legions of the truth, or to the soldiers of the truth, or to the horsemen of the truth. So the proofs, the 100, the barahi in

00:04:22--> 00:04:58

the evidence, you have to give into that because that is the essence of Tada. So keep in mind that he did not tell you here that tada is to walk in a particular way, but certainly walking as a loss of pinata said Lavina I'm so in honor of the homeowner those who walk on earth hamona how when means what? It doesn't necessarily mean that you meditate, but that is basically a translation of the meaning. But how when and means gently, with ease and gentleness.

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

So you're

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

Not hottie in your walk, you're not arrogant, you're not insolent.

00:05:07--> 00:05:11

But at the same time, you don't have to walk like

00:05:13--> 00:05:14

basically a sick man.

00:05:16--> 00:05:20

The lower on his head that armor the network, like I said, Man,

00:05:21--> 00:05:29

he used to walk with confidence He He was tall people you would think that he was riding when he was just walking.

00:05:31--> 00:05:41

So, it does not it is not necessarily like a an act to others, not an act at all is something that will be tested when you are

00:05:43--> 00:06:16

basically put in a situation when the truth is not on your side. And you discover that the truth is not on my side. And then you are presented with evidence you're presented with proves to tell you that the truth is not on your side talaga is to give it at this point, quickly as quickly as possible to give this a render to say I am wrong, you know, I you know, this is or I was the wrongdoer or I was the oppressor

00:06:17--> 00:06:41

that act of surrender to solid half. And he said some will let will hug Salah means what? It means a mighty attack. sola Yes, so that means a mighty attack. So the mighty attacked by the soldiers of the truth, when when the soldiers of the truth, attack you with might

00:06:43--> 00:06:59

then instead of recruiting all of your energy, to fight back, if you just surrender, you just raise your hands and you surrender to that mighty attack or some little hack the mighty attack by the soldiers of truth.

00:07:01--> 00:07:19

And then he said we'll all authority and it is three different levels. If you think about torrado and if you think about it, kibra and wild kibra which is the opposite of a powder have this evil place in in our Deen

00:07:20--> 00:07:53

Kibriya in particular has a very evil place in our Deen. So when you see like in Sahih Muslim for instance, the Prophet sallallahu taala sold reports from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but he said later on Jana McAfee apparently he miscarried was a rotten man cave layer to hold on Jenna, he will never enter Paradise man canopy Toby who has in his heart. miscarried was a rotten aspect, especially with Carlos era men kibra aspect of pride when I speak of arrogance,

00:07:54--> 00:07:59

in his heart, a speck of arrogance in his heart. That is

00:08:00--> 00:08:53

that that's a very strong statement, a speck of arrogance in one's heart will not allow them to enter Paradise. And then in many other hobbies, the prophets are seldom used the very strong statement Allah subhanaw taala. In you know, the divine Hobbes used a very strong statement about this. So in a hadith that is reported also by Muslim, Allah subhanaw taala you know, so, it is reported by Muslim from Abu hurayrah from the prophet SAW sanlam relating to us from Allah subhanaw taala that he said, other is to is that he will Kibriya or a day or current Korea or that he will our motto is early in Muslims report Allah is that is, so is or might is my lower garment

00:08:55--> 00:09:01

and Kibriya every day, and pride is my cloak from an Azerbaijani as

00:09:02--> 00:09:29

from an Zani, I'll try to have an hour in some reports, or I'll throw him in Paradise and hellfire. Or step two, who I will punish him I will torment him. So whoever competes with me for them, whoever buys or competes with me, for them or competes against me for Kibriya. And as for my pride, I will torment him. And if you truly look

00:09:31--> 00:09:54

if you truly look for the root cause of our failures, the root cause of our failures, is it is it arrogance or incompetence, not not just our individual failures, but our collective failures are failures. You know, the failure of organizations the failure of nations the failure of our own to a great extent, is it

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

is the root cause in competence or arrogance.

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

Mostly arrogance, it will be mostly arrogance not in competence in competence is often a result of arrogance. Because if you work humble enough, you would have listened to someone else, you would have consulted someone else you have you would have given in to the truth that was related to you by someone else, but the problem is on the individual level, the organization and group, team organization and level on my level, may national level this level that level in general failure comes from arrogance, and the most ultimate failure. And the most devastating the tremendous failure was the failure of this a poem because it earned him a place and a permanent place in the hellfire.

00:10:52--> 00:11:00

And the failure of the farm was a failure of incompetence or arrogance, arrogance and albums failure was a failure of

00:11:02--> 00:11:02

greed

00:11:04--> 00:11:05

You know, it

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

came from hertz Gabriel was his arrogance and hepes is greed

00:11:13--> 00:11:22

Adams law or as them share of these, you know, bad attributes evil traits was Harold Smith.

00:11:23--> 00:11:30

was last shower agreed, you know, not necessarily give him the say upon.

00:11:32--> 00:11:59

His problem was his character, his arrogance, he eventually eventually thought was barred from repentance. Allah said this as we found it, Olivia on it Levine Levine ethic a bona fide rbdigital Huck, unless you haven't sorted off high will turn away from my ad from my verses from my science, and levena Anika Bruna from out of the blue rioted halfway out Okay, let me know via 000000.

00:12:01--> 00:12:13

So I will turn away from my science, those who have good, ethical, bona fide are those who demonstrate capital arrogance on Earth.

00:12:15--> 00:12:26

So that a man was blocked from repentance, and that is the most severe punishment, it is to be turned away from repentance, it is to be turned away from

00:12:27--> 00:12:47

basura from inside, from receiving the guidance, the light of Allah subhanaw taala could you think of any worse punishment? Absolutely not. That would be the worst punishment and people could spend the rest of their lives thinking that they are, you know,

00:12:49--> 00:13:23

you know, guided or right, think that they are doing well. But they have been turned away from the, from the science of Allah subhanaw taala and from the proofs, the clear proofs of Allah subhanaw taala because of their kept because of their arrogance. So if there is one thing that we have to be that we have to stay away from it, we have to stay away from areas we have to stay away from. Because in competence, you can come back and make up for it. You know, greed, you can come back and repent from

00:13:24--> 00:13:57

but cabe could result in your sort of eternal doom. Because you have been turning away from the signs of Allah subhanaw taala and if you are turning away from the signs of Allah, how could you repent? Because repentance requires some awareness, awareness of your mistake, awareness of your failure. But the problem here is that you are unaware of your failure, you're unaware of your mistake, because you have been turned away from that recognition.

00:13:58--> 00:14:08

Okay. And then there are so many hobbies, you know, so many of these profits are seldom said in the lock that are highly

00:14:12--> 00:14:24

revealed to me about revealed to me, instruct you to demonstrate to others to show humbleness, until no one is boastful or no one

00:14:25--> 00:14:57

oppresses anyone and that no one boasts or no one who presses any anyone. And the prophet SAW Sodom also said Allah Akbar combined in our ninja woven stack, but this was reported by quite a Muslim Muslim from Hadassah, viola and one he said today not any of the people of the Hellfire, and the Sahaba said, oh yes O Messenger of Allah. And he said curato Ninja waarvan Stockwell cooler atoll Len atoll means what? are totally means harsh.

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

Harsh

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

Like crude, not refined.

00:15:05--> 00:15:17

So a person with harsh character, the was means what? Sometimes you will see this translated as fat is really not fat because we don't have fat people are not necessarily sort of

00:15:20--> 00:16:16

not necessarily evil, but it just means big and overbearing. It is it the Prophet Hassan is trying to basically draw a picture a mental picture of the people of the hellfire. So he is telling them called Alton lane harsh, big and overbearing euro, somebody that they would see in the market, see someone big and overbearing and using his sort of as his body, to push people or to basically talk down to people. And then mistake they're arrogant. So someone who is harsh, big and overbearing, and arrogant. But keep in mind that the process of what I was trying to draw him into picture for them arrogant in our times, could be someone who is like very good looking, you know, handsome, well

00:16:16--> 00:16:17

dressed,

00:16:18--> 00:16:22

not necessarily acting in any way that would be

00:16:23--> 00:16:24

socially

00:16:25--> 00:16:26

crude.

00:16:28--> 00:17:04

arrogance is not about acting a certain way. It's not about you know, walking a certain way or bending yourself over lowering your head, like this arrogance is in the heart. You know, humbleness is not about bending your neck or, or it's not. arrogance is not about your posture. It is about the posture of your heart, not the posture of your body. It's the posture of your heart, not the posture of your body. And certainly you will not act your body posture should not be one that that basically exudes or demonstrates arrogance.

00:17:05--> 00:17:15

But this is not where you're paying attention what you're paying attention to, you're paying attention to your heart because arrogance is in

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

the heart.

00:17:19--> 00:17:38

So, arrogance is not necessarily about the external posture or external attitude, it is more about the internal attitude, it's more about the staining the truth, as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Gabriel guttural happy or humbleness, gave rise to the stain, the truth

00:17:40--> 00:17:45

and NASS and to look down or to be little

00:17:47--> 00:17:47

people.

00:17:49--> 00:18:07

Then we'll talk about the three degrees as he usually does the three degrees of humbleness, he says Dr. Ola, Todd or the dean, the first level is humbleness before the religion, something that we need, well, whoa. And it means that one will not

00:18:09--> 00:18:16

allow you are a double nakulan mencoder it means that one will not first the first one you have mentioned three

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

criteria for this first one lie or our ally Juarez of Mr. Goodman Kula he will not oppose the transmitted evidence by rational one, he will not oppose the transmitted evidence by irrational one.

00:18:36--> 00:18:37

I,

00:18:38--> 00:18:46

I hate to you know, some people are intellectually more inclined, some people are spiritually more inclined than I hate, sometimes to,

00:18:50--> 00:18:57

to basically interpret and in sort of a primarily spiritual text intellectually.

00:18:59--> 00:19:08

Because it it is mixing two different realms in a way that may not necessarily be conducive to the intent of the author.

00:19:09--> 00:19:10

But sometimes we need to,

00:19:12--> 00:19:58

just to clarify things, particularly when the author also borders on that interface between the spiritual and the intellectual. And here he is talking about something that is somewhere between the spiritual and the intellectual. The spiritual here is that you don't have any arrogance in your heart to oppose that which you received from Allah and His Messenger, that you are shown tomato humbleness, and he admitted it before a lot His Messenger before the message itself before the dean and the message itself, that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam had brought to you. So that is the spiritual point that the sheikh wants to stress. But to address it more intellectually, this

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

particular point that he has

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

That he brought up, which is that you don't oppose that transmitted proves you don't oppose an area or hobbies by an MA code by reason, by a rational proof, you don't say but that does not make sense.

00:20:17--> 00:20:33

So that was that's what the chief wants. And this is certain, and this is a very important point that the CFO wants to make. But I also wanted to be fair and presenting this particular point. Because in nakulan, Mahood

00:20:34--> 00:20:54

the relationship between man and put on Apple is not a dualistic relationship, it is not basically my pool and my pool. And that said, Because men pool is not all is not all created is not created equal. It's not all created equal. The same applies to naraku. But we have

00:20:55--> 00:21:35

basically, within the mempool and Mark Ward, we have a binary division within the mempool and the marpol. Because the mempool could be definitive or speculative copy or zoning. And the map pool could be definitive or speculative, but it often is that true or not, not everything that is manku that is transmitted to us from the prophets are some is definitive, in its transmission definitive in its implication, right. Sometimes it's definitive and transmission, we are certain that this came from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam such as each and every eye of the Qur'an, such as Elisa Mottola, Tara, the Hadees, that were reported by continuous testimonial risotto.

00:21:37--> 00:21:41

We are certain of the transmission of each and every one of those.

00:21:43--> 00:21:54

But that's as far as transmission is concerned. But then we have implication, what do they actually what does this actually mean? The problem is, sometimes some of them

00:21:56--> 00:22:11

may be and that is when the cost fitnah to the public, or that is when the cost trials to the public, they may want to think that their understanding of the text is definitive, when it is speculative.

00:22:13--> 00:23:04

And that, that will you know, and particularly if this text is definitive, and transmission, and then you are saying that the implication is definitive, and you're presenting this to the public or to the masses as definitive, definitive, definitive and transmission, definitive and implication, you're given them no way out. And that causes them fitna that causes them you know, that tests their Deen and cause them trials. Because if it is, in fact, counter to reason, then you are causing them and like an unwarranted trial in their religious commitment. Why where is the failure coming from the failure is coming from the safe, who wanted to confer certainty on his own understanding, or her

00:23:04--> 00:23:34

own understanding. So that and then when you do this, then you're you're putting the receiver in this sort of very awkward and very difficult position the either accepted because it comes from Milan His Messenger, and in this case, the cancel out the reason or the either defy it, when you're attending them that it is definitive. And in this case, they'll feel religiously guilty.

00:23:37--> 00:23:44

But they just couldn't accept it. And then that will start the basically a cascade of

00:23:45--> 00:24:31

fitna for them in their minds. So it is important that we first sort out the differences between them and quote unquote, because not every man court case was created equal. There is one quote that is transmitted definitively and its implication is definitive copy the data is the booth. So definitive and transmission definitive and in implication, and there is one code that is speculative, in both transmission and implication, and there is an encoder that is, you know, definitive in transmission, but speculative. In implication, there are many ads in the air that are respected. Commentators disagree with a zero and disagree all the time on the meanings of the author

00:24:31--> 00:24:45

of the Quran. So being that it is an app of the Quran, yes, you're guaranteed definitiveness of transmission, you're guaranteed that this area in this month to you know, this particular statement

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

is has come from Allah subhanaw taala. But then what is the implication that is the important question to ask afterwards. So, if you look at it when it comes to my man, man, Google AdMob

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

All you would have

00:25:03--> 00:25:33

you would have what this binary division within poulan marpol man COVID is nutana means one knockaloe means to carry the transmit and makua means what it comes from our which is rational. So mempool and mountune you will have a pool that is definitive, and the mempool that is speculative. And you have, I'm sorry, my pool here, wow,

00:25:34--> 00:25:40

you have my pool that is definitive and more code that is speculative.

00:25:41--> 00:26:00

So, definitive versus definitive will never happen. If it happens, it is happening only in your mind, it is not happening in reality. So, one has, you know, definitive the definitive of the man who can never

00:26:01--> 00:26:03

basically conflict with the definitive of the moku

00:26:05--> 00:26:47

that conflict has to be in your mind, go back and figure out what's wrong, because that conflict will never exist, because AR to law will never conflict with each other. I add mistura that I had that are written transmitted that are transmitted to us in the Quran and the Sunnah will never conflict with the out of the corner of Allah subhanaw, taala and manzara in his universe that I add, that we can witness behold, in the universe, through our app, through our reason and intellect, which Allah told you is your tool to bring it to him. So, never give it up. Never give it up, never give your intellect.

00:26:49--> 00:26:52

So, definitive versus definitive will not happen.

00:26:54--> 00:27:45

When it is definitive versus speculative, definitive versus speculative, definitive versus speculative, we always give precedence to the definitive regardless of whether it is makuta moku. Because the definitive of the reason of the intellect, if it conflicts with the speculative, the speculative proof, the speculative transmitted proof, which has an uncool, we will still give precedence to in Mako to reason the intellect over in my code, because the reason here is definitive, and Mr. Poole is speculative. The reason here is definitive end, and mancora. speculative is like when timeout, no law says they reported with a chain that could be the sound

00:27:45--> 00:27:52

that the prophet SAW, Selim said if you see someone sneeze, while they're talking, then they must be truthful.

00:27:53--> 00:27:57

And he said we see people lie and sneeze all the time.

00:27:59--> 00:28:18

So, the even though that that report could be huson could be described as harsh and it could be described as a sound report, but we see people do the opposite all the time, therefore, the report itself will be rejected.

00:28:19--> 00:28:22

So, definitive versus speculative,

00:28:23--> 00:28:43

we will give precedence to definitive all the time when we said definitive versus definitive will never happen, speculative versus speculative. That is when you go need to go back and work on it a little bit more to figure out if you could, if one of these speculative

00:28:44--> 00:28:50

if if you know one of these proves whether rational or textual

00:28:52--> 00:29:16

can be upgraded from the speculative the definitive or if there is a difference in strength between them. And if there is an obvious difference in strength between them, then you will give precedence to what is obviously stronger, obviously stronger, but that is not stronger, according to you, but this is obviously stronger, according to the

00:29:18--> 00:29:43

to the collective mind, not the individual mind. But this is not. This is basically how much plays should you know, this is Ryan and Hobbes and how much plays should we give or how much weight should we give to reason versus the transmitted reports? and so on and so forth. And although technically I should be, you know,

00:29:45--> 00:29:54

I belong to other hobbies and, and technicality because that's Maliki shaft, a and Hanbury these are the so called adult hobbies.

00:29:55--> 00:30:00

But it is not straightforward as some people may think and it isn't

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

Not that the mannequins and cafes and Betty's never gave sort of the proper weight enough weight or the due weight to the irrational proves it is not like that. So, but but in general in general ever they are of comparable strengths, we will give precedence to in manku over a map,

00:30:26--> 00:30:44

then we will question our reason, not the transmitted reports, if they are of comparable strength, that is when the conflict that is when there is an expected conflict conflict between men cool Mr. Poole, the rational and the textual.

00:30:46--> 00:31:39

Otherwise, no one ever said that you give up there the definitive rational evidence for a speculative textual evidence, no one said that, because that will go back and destroy the very tool that Allah gave you to reach him in the first place to come to his door in the first place. your intellect is the tool that he gave you to get to him in the first place. And Allah would not want you to give that up, Allah would not want you to spoil it, to ruin it, to destroy it. And once you have done it once or twice, you may be more prone to going back and do it more, more and more, you know. So a lot did not ask you to give up your intellect.

00:31:41--> 00:31:46

But Allah asked you to be humble and to understand your limitations.

00:31:47--> 00:31:54

Okay, so then the next point is also important because she would say what I actually didn't either.

00:31:56--> 00:32:11

So he would not question the proofs of the religion, he will not question the proofs of the religion. He will not question the proofs of the religion. These the lead could be the lead to the dean or the lead to the dean and in its entirety assigned to

00:32:12--> 00:32:24

that guides you like the signs that guide you to Allah subhanaw taala and to Islam, or could be the lead in the deen at about a certain belief or about a certain

00:32:25--> 00:32:33

engineer injunction an entity? So you will not question them, you will question your intellect because keep in mind,

00:32:35--> 00:33:18

what makes sense to you does not make sense to me. What makes sense to both of us may not make sense to someone else from a different culture, most of what makes sense to us is about social constructs. It's not about sense in the sense of mental axioms. Is that true or not? What made sense, what makes sense to people nowadays did not make sense to them 100 years ago, and may not make sense to people in 100 years from now. So if you're subject to that divine instruction, to your sense, that is not the mental axioms of the brain, where the you know, when we say it's a mental axiom that the hole is bigger than the part. You know, that's a mental axiom. It's a myth, that axiom that mobility and

00:33:18--> 00:34:07

stemness cannot, you know, exist in one matter substance from all aspects for you know, so that it's mobile, or still, it cannot be mobile, and still at the same time, from all aspects meaning in relation to all surroundings. So these are called mental axioms. But what what we talk about when we talk about that doesn't make sense to me what most of the people talk about when they say this is the is their own sense, which is basically a product of their upbringing, a product of their own failures were coming in or even covenants of a federal home and family status, happy me, and how many a critic of a

00:34:08--> 00:34:18

good sound statement and there his problem is only and has deficient intellect, or deficient understanding, you know?

00:34:20--> 00:34:43

So, then don't question the dean. Question. First, your intellect. Now we're not talking about definitive you. Don't question that in your are going to question your intellect, and you're going to humble yourself, and you're going to try to be as impartial as possible. Although you understand that you cannot be completely impartial.

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

As a human being, you are born with biases. And as a son, as someone who grew up in a certain culture, you are inculcated with biases from the time you were born. Your mother when she was nursing you she nurse biases into

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

You

00:35:01--> 00:35:02

and your father,

00:35:03--> 00:35:05

not when he was nursing you but like

00:35:07--> 00:35:20

they they inculcated the biases into you understand this question yourself. Before you question our last pinata. And and before your question is the question, you know,

00:35:21--> 00:35:38

you're the norms of human society, because the norms of human society vary every 100 years, you see, not every 100 years, you know, look 20 years ago, look at certain things that people consider it to be now common sense.

00:35:39--> 00:35:47

prevalent trends in the society that were not 20 years ago, and 40 years ago, were just like other craziness.

00:35:49--> 00:36:05

So so this is what the shift wants you to do. And what I say medini that either keep in mind, a little bit of philosophy can can turn you away from faith. And that's the problem. That's the problem with philosophy. That's the problem. Why many of the traditional

00:36:06--> 00:36:12

Messiah have, you know, been particularly

00:36:13--> 00:36:23

suspecting philosophy as like a cause of deviation or something of that nature, which is not true. Philosophers disagree with each other all the time.

00:36:24--> 00:37:09

They always disagree and that does not you know, the rationalist and empiricists, for instance, you know, the, the, they are all considered great philosophers, but they have always disagreed with each other, disagreed with the very foundation of their thought process despite that, and they still respected each other. So philosophy does not give you answers. Logic does not give you answers. The thing is, is that logicians also disagree with each other all the time, and before the current critiqued our theory of logic, the first one to critique our theory of logic with a very comprehensive argument within Tamia Rahim, Allah is a raw data, multi month opinion, which is

00:37:09--> 00:37:13

translated as against the Greek logicians

00:37:14--> 00:37:32

preceded the character by a couple of 100 years, and was more, you know, was more was stronger logically, than the cards critique of our history and logic, and the current is, because in Western philosophy, that it's, it's usually they

00:37:33--> 00:37:35

don't really, really examine

00:37:36--> 00:38:15

philosophy outside of the Western paradigm. But the current is considered to have caused the greatest paradigm shift in philosophy, you know, in modern times, and then after the card game, Emmanuel Kant. But, you know, the critique of Rene Descartes is as inferior to their critique of MDMA. And now that the book has been translated, hopefully, more people don't have an access to it and more people are acknowledging that. So the idea here is when you when you when you approach philosophy and approach logic, don't approach approach it with a slavers mind with a survivor mind or a slavers mind.

00:38:17--> 00:38:25

And don't approach it unless you are capable, competent enough to approach it. So not everybody is advised to study

00:38:26--> 00:38:48

philosophy. When you're competent enough, you could approach and in the beginning of your study of philosophy, that is the most dangerous and risky phase. Because we are egotistical, proud people by sort of nature. And then when you start to when you when you get access to

00:38:49--> 00:38:52

some sort of fancy,

00:38:53--> 00:38:53

sort of

00:38:54--> 00:38:55

terminology

00:38:57--> 00:39:44

is that you want to use it, you're so eager to use it, you're so eager to look that you're more informed and more eloquent and more philosophical, more intellectual. And that is the phase where you could actually lose your deal in that phase. And many of the philosophers who lost phase lost that early on in that faith phase. But keep in mind, the greatest philosophers in modern philosophy, the great philosophers in the past, they all they were theistic, in one way or the other, that you know, Plato and Socrates but you know, he did not believe in he's even monotheistic, to some extent they believe our started believed in the prime mover.

00:39:45--> 00:39:59

So so that they were critical of Greek mythology. They were critical of Greek polytheism. org and Greek mythology, the greatest The greatest philosophers of our modern history that caused you know, the greatest power

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

shifts in modern history really originated cartoni manual count, they were both believers, they were actually both to some extent, devout Emanuel, Rene Descartes, I doubt therefore I am. He said that the only thing that will guarantee that I will not be completely lost, if I doubt is the divine is God. So, that divine guarantee was basically the anchor that he held on to, while he is first his mind of all of his previous conceptions and convictions, he said, I will clear my mind completely, I will doubt that I,

00:40:41--> 00:40:45

that my body exists, because my body could be an illusion, to that extent,

00:40:46--> 00:41:43

as his theory of though, went, but he said, I have the divine guarantee has the record, evaluate count was, was in fact pious and strict in his practice of Christianity. So, the problem is, it is it is back to pride. It is back to arrogance, when people start to study philosophy, you know, the most dangerous phase is probably the first couple of years. Because now they are exposed to terminology and information knowledge, that is too fancy for them. And now they want to use it now their ego wants to use this knowledge. And that is when it becomes a very volatile and dangerous, but if they can make it through, and if we have the intellect and they have the intelligence, they

00:41:43--> 00:41:50

have the intellect and they are grounded in their Deen and they can make it through that phase that eventually

00:41:51--> 00:41:52

they could be

00:41:54--> 00:42:20

an asset for for our own and for our lead. So this is not, you know, advising you to go out and study philosophy, but I'm saying that some people will some people who are grounded in the deen and who are intelligent enough well, and for those people, hopefully if they are not proud, and they are not arrogant, they'll be able to go through it and they will be able to make it through.

00:42:31--> 00:43:03

Well the content that they that they are learning, if it depends if if they are humble enough, they are humble enough and they will give themselves time to process this content correctly properly. And if they do process it correctly and properly, it will eventually lead them to face to theism, not atheism. But if their ego takes over and they are like being hasty and

00:43:05--> 00:43:14

they just want to show it off. Because then yes, then in this case, this content itself could be harmful,

00:43:15--> 00:43:18

because it is not being processed correctly.

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

Then the SEC said what I earn enough enough, he said below and find

00:43:25--> 00:43:47

and that he will not find an excuse for diversions. He will not find an excuse for diversions, diversions, this agreeing with the dean disagreeing with the signs of a lot disagreeing with you know, proofs of Allah subhanaw taala you will not find an excuse for diversions. He said then what is that it can be

00:43:48--> 00:43:54

that this level is not validated. And this will not be accomplished.

00:43:55--> 00:44:02

Elaborate Ellerbee, an era and an agenda for the PC era what is the time at about a theater when a unit or at HUD

00:44:03--> 00:44:32

this will not be accomplished except by recognizing that salvation is dependent on having insight and straightness comes only after having trust and clarity is attainable only through the proper evidence. So he said here three words that we want to have Naja which is salvation is the karma which is greatness, but yen which is clarity, who doesn't want survival, salvation, straightness and clarity.

00:44:33--> 00:44:39

He said that these are dependent on three things. Salvation is dependent on insight.

00:44:41--> 00:44:45

straightness is dependent on having trust and this having trust in a line is the

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

and the banana clarity is dependent on the holder, the clear proofs the group's understanding the proofs, and he's saying that there is it's a mixture here that will make everybody humble

00:45:00--> 00:45:05

Josie Rahim Allah inside the Carter he was talking about the greatest of the Abed and the greatest of the

00:45:07--> 00:45:11

so the greatest Sophie's of all time and the greatest of all time, or better knowledge

00:45:12--> 00:45:23

of the greatest movies of all time. medikamente dinar for instance, and Bishop Ned Harris and Ravi, Allah the way and have the greatest scholars of all time, he mentioned the for the for

00:45:25--> 00:45:37

the for known Imams, and he mentioned with him Sophia is 30 as well. And he said that, you know, I brought them in front of me and I talked to them and say the father, he is talking to himself from talking to everybody.

00:45:40--> 00:45:43

Josie is like, you know, a tier one preacher.

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

So he said, I brought them in front of me and I talked to them and he kept on like, talking about how

00:45:52--> 00:46:04

they humble themselves. Because the scholar is the fuqaha understood that knowledge is pursued to begin with in the first place.

00:46:05--> 00:46:31

For that which they are bad have already imagined that was once asked about moral character about the knowledge of Mark McCarthy and maruf have knowledge. You know, keep in mind that a Sufi who says that I I get this all from Allah subhanaw taala and I'm not I don't need knowledge, I don't need the knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah. And the end and and this and that. That is

00:46:34--> 00:46:42

that is disingenuous, that is untrue. That is just a faulty type of the soul.

00:46:44--> 00:47:22

But modificar fee may not have been that knowledgeable in the sense, you know, he's not so Fianna salary is not. So anymore, he asked him about modificar fees, I did not want to say that maruf is not necessarily you know, that one of the greatest scholars, but then he said a statement as the Soviet Foreign powerful, he said we had a youth level the elderly lalibela in a model of the we seek knowledge except to attain that which maruf already had, or model already has do the is not sought for anything other than one model already has.

00:47:24--> 00:47:39

So he said that he said, You know that we're all of this class, is something that maroof already has an order, what we're doing all of what we're learning is to be able to reach the station of maruf. And at the same time.

00:47:41--> 00:48:16

So Allah subhanaw taala is telling them that it is basura that is my gift, and it is head. And you need to have both, to have the to have the clarity. And to have the salvation you need to have both, you cannot only rely on one, you have to rely on number zero, which is my gift. And you have to rely on the HUD, which is my proofs. And the proper understanding of the HUD, Malik COVID-19 are one of the greatest is ohad used to go to a hospital buslee and learn from him. And and so he used to say it has an estate owner.

00:48:17--> 00:48:29

And he was the greatest and the greatest talk of his time. So pianos theory that one of the greatest scholars used to go to Robert all the way and listen to her preaching, to learn from her.

00:48:31--> 00:48:41

You know, certain use of piano somebody would not learn the fact or hobbies from probably another way. So if you had authority is was considered by Dima mathema, to be the greatest of all,

00:48:42--> 00:48:50

the greatest of all, so he was a contemporary of Abu hanifa and medic, and Mr. Mohammed said he was the greatest no one is like Sophia.

00:48:52--> 00:49:01

And that is including Abu hanifa and medic in a mama's assessment. So if you had a thyroid, he was the greatest of all of his time for sure.

00:49:02--> 00:49:11

So but so but but Sophie had was needed to go to, you know, to learn from Robbie. And listen to the preaching of Robin.

00:49:12--> 00:49:22

So it makes everyone humbled, it makes the abbot humbled, you know before knowledge and it makes the atom humbled before the iPad

00:49:24--> 00:49:56

or tennis or asceticism, or the of the rabbit. So everybody will be humbled. No one will say I don't need the harder I don't need the clear proofs. No one will say I don't need you know the procedure, the gift that comes from Allah that is given by Allah subhanaw taala to those who are worthy of it, deserving of it. So the the item will be humbled. The Abbot will be humbled and everyone will be humbled.

00:49:58--> 00:50:00

Okay, and this is only 11

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

One

00:50:02--> 00:50:03

what what should I do?

00:50:07--> 00:50:10

Stop here and defer the rest for another time.

00:50:12--> 00:50:14

But this other time will be two weeks from from today

00:50:16--> 00:50:21

because I also need the whole time for dinner as we have many issues to discuss

00:50:23--> 00:50:25

or just in five minutes finished level two and level three.

00:50:30--> 00:50:40

Next time everybody wants next time. Okay, we will we will stop here and defer level two or level three of this station of other macatawa

00:50:42--> 00:50:44

you know, and until next time
