To proceed, so, today inshallah we will talk about
the chapter on astuteness or double rasa.
in separate session we will talk about view or we will start to the effect of financial transactions, the section on the top of financial transactions and today we will talk about who you are talking about some introduction and also
you know, the, maybe we will address some of the pillars and conditions of valid sales.
But first let's go over
the moment, a lot Allah said in the chapter of students or on on astuteness Kala was agenda in his article that I attended with assuming a lot of mighty said, Indeed, in that are Signs for those who discern. And the word that he used for matassa mean, which was interpreted the word moto semi in itself, the people who have the capacity of discerning was interpreted by a Mujahid to be Alameda ferrocene. So the people who have the capacity of rasa feroza
and as we said before, for us, is basically this mental astuteness
but not just the mental astuteness. In fact, the sheriff here would be addressing primarily spiritual astuteness.
The ability of prediction, its ability, the ability of prediction, to see someone and to tell where they're from, what they're doing, what they're up to.
About also there,
basically enter character from their exterior, it's about telling about that film from afar it telling about the interior from the exterior, instead of about it
from a color, it is telling about the character from the appearance from the external appears.
It is basically something that that is needed and many fields, right. Like in medicine, for instance, like in law enforcement,
you need to have that basically discerning guy
to be able to tell people apart, and to know what they are about and what they are up to, and things of that nature. So maybe give some examples of what the cold Pharaoh said before, what they consider it to be for us to have a little bit of understanding
of eurocity. So Mohammed Ahmed Hassan Shafi, may Allah be pleased with
Mohammed bin Hassan, one of the main disciples of hanifa radi Allahu geneon. And he mmm safaree they were sitting and talking about.
They're there. They were sitting and chatting and someone passed by. And then they said, Well, let us figure out
what his job is. And they have a one of them said, he is a carpenter. The other one said, he's a tailor. So they call them and it's the they asked him, What do you work? He said, I was a theater and then now I'm a carpenter.
So he asked, Amaya, yes, used to be extremely like, as to like,
has as a judge. One day he passed by a man. And they asked him about that man, and he said, He's from wasit. He teaches children, and he's looking for a runaway slave. So they said to him, where did he, you know, and when they went to the man, and they asked him, What are you? What are you doing here? Because he was not from town. And he told them, I'm from wasa. And then I'm looking for a runaway slave. And they said, so what what is what do you work for? What do you do for a living? And he said, the mama teacher, teach young boys. So they went back to the house and asked him, so how did you figure this out? He said, he said, The he has, like his garment has threads, like red
threads that are sort of characteristic of garments from asset. And so how did he figure out that he was that he was teaching young boys, our youngsters
When he said that he was paying more attention to young boys, and he was giving Salaam to young boys and ignoring the, you know, the elders.
And then how they said to him how difficult he was looking for a runaway slave. And he said to them, that he was looking carefully
at people with sort of,
like, sort of cheap garments. And he was looking at people who had their face covered, he was looking at people who had their face covered and wearing cheap garments.
So that's how I figured that out. So that he used to be he used to be known for his feras
this power prediction
safaree Rahim Allah tala. And that is also that for us can be in part acquired, it is a natural thing, it's a gift from Allah subhanaw taala. And this is what the chief has predominantly talking about here, because the ferocity that comes through in ham, which is inspiration or disclosure, which has cash, that is not dependent on Southern science, you know, here he has was using science, and most of the time for us is about using subtle science that other people will not see, you know, there are certain people who have this ability like
to use subtle signs, be certain behaviors, give them certain clues about the people they're dealing with, some people can be easily deceived, some people are not easily deceived. You know, so some people, for instance, you know, how like, sometimes people
basically come into a neighborhood or come into a congregation oriental masters, for instance, and raise funds for various sorts of purposes, whatever investment and so on, some people can be easily deceived by you know, some of them are, you know, genuine and truthful. Some of them are not, some people are easily deceived by the people that are not particularly genuine.
And some people are not, they can tell that they feel something wrong. Or they detect
that their behavior, or their body language, we detect something about them that that causes that concern, and makes them you know,
So, rahimullah when he was in the AMA, and he spent quite some time in Yemen, he was reading a lot of books on feroza. To be you know, he, so he was learning for us. And he was learning that astuteness, that power prediction, sometimes it's acquired can be learned. And then on his way back to Makkah,
he was sort of exercising what he learned. And then he passed by a man and he figured that this man must be stingy, miserly. And then the men call them
and, you know, and invited him to food, and took care of him and was very hospitable and so on. And then as I said, to himself by certain feroza, you know, which is like,
Doom this peraza, or
whatever deal that is, or, like, What a waste of time reading all of those books on Periscope.
And then by the time he was about leaving, he told him I live in Mecca, and when you come to Mecca,
come by and, you know, no creamer, we will, you know, be as hospitable to you as you were to us here. And then he was about to leave and the guy told them, wait a second.
I did all of this for you. Aren't you gonna pay me
realize that it wasn't actually such a waste of time.
There are many other examples and I don't want to waste all the time.
But all of those examples are about ferocity that's, that's the mental astuteness
sometimes, like I said, that's what the sheriff is talking about. Mainly it is inhabit as inspiration by Allah subhanaw taala or disclosure, even governmental as students that meant that our students could be gifted by Allah subhanaw taala
It could be a gift from Allah subhanaw taala. Or it could be through exercise and learning. You know, such as like, you know, in medicine, for instance, people learn how to pick up certain clues and figure out certain things in law enforcement people learn how. So it could be through exercise and learning, if it is about the subtle signs.
Or it could be about spiritual discipline, even if it is not from Allah subhanaw taala its spiritual discipline, people who are spiritually disciplined, whether they're Muslim or not, it's just spiritual discipline.
And they do a lot of reorder particularly Do you know, hunger
endurance in worship or perseverance or in reflection, and, and things of that nature. So those spiritually discipline people, even if they're not Muslim, they can have grace, and they can have that astuteness. So it's, or it could be from the same town also, it could be from, you know, the shaitan inspiring people, certain things.
So it is not always an indication that someone is basically righteous, or
a saint, in other words,
so that's, you know, for us.
That's the ferocity, they're mainly talking about when
when they talk about the different types of ferocity, then the chicks at our Sumatra feroza was the natural hakomi very been very interested led in besar, he didn't want to burden with algebra, or era Salafi Raja tawassul, discernment is synonymous with spiritual astuteness. It is the realization of a matter of the unseen, without obvious indication or empirical experience, the realization of the matter of the unseen, without obvious indication or empirical experience. So the shift here, basically is dismissing all the philosophy that most of the philosophers we talked about, which is the mental astuteness the ability of prediction that uses subtle science, you know, he asked him
tomorrow where he was, you know, he said, The threaten his garment, you know, he was looking at people so we have certain indications, to figure out what this man where this man is, from, what his profession is, what he's doing what he's looking for.
And although that's
the shift now is telling you that this is not what I'm talking about here, I'm talking about the realization of a matter of the unseen, without obvious indication or empirical experience, empirical experiences, like you know, doctors who figure out through empirical experience that this, you know, like, when someone has like yellowish discoloration of the eyes, they probably are having a problem with the liver or something of that nature, that's empirical experience. And then obvious indication like as and threaten the government or, or things of that nature. But he's saying that this is not what I'm talking about. Now. I'm talking about something else and he's talking about 11, which is
inspiration, and cash torches disclosure. It's basically the light, the loss of pinata like grants to his servants with which we can discern things apart.
There is a hadith intermidiate is a controversial
chain, in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said a tabula rasa min Fein and lianzhou binaural beware of the rasa, the astuteness of a believer because he is
he sees with the light of Allah subhanaw taala he's, he sees with the light of Allah been aurilla
and some of the scholars of Hadith accept that and the meaning of this hadith is is a valid meaning is an acceptable meaning. There's no controversy over the meaning of it. It's just over you know, about the traceability to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and it is likely traceable. So,
so, here the nor of Allah subhanaw taala could be through inspiration or could be through this disclosure and that is what the shift has mainly talking about, but this also makes it incumbent on us to address the issue of the unseen and how can people have access to the unseen should into the unseen be the prerogative of Allah only should enter the unseen be the exclusive domain of Allah? Didn't the law say and sort of that anomala lay out a moment
ardila Hi Bella mashrabiya Basu say no one in the heavens or the earth knows the vibe with the unseen except Allah and they know not when they will be resurrected. So, should into the unseen baby the exclusive domain of Allah right or wrong? It is because he said the layout similar to the Alabama law, say no one in the heavens or the earth knows the unseen except a lot. But now, that is basically lost 100 Allah knows the unseen without being told about it, have it write it.
But can someone be told about some aspects of the unseen Yes, the last one without a seven sort of sort of alien Ron makinalari of nakoma Leo toliara kumala study Rasul.
Allah would have not exposed the unseen to you would have not revealed the unseen to you, a lot would not reveal the unseen to you, but Allah selected as messengers, whenever he pleases,
whomever he pleases,
which means that the messengers can have some access to some of the unseen, the some of the unseen, why am I saying some what is the difference between the messengers knowledge of the unseen and allows knowledge of the unseen?
Yeah, well, the messengers knowledge of the unseen is contingent upon his permission upon his disclosure of it to them, you know, his knowledge of the unseen is not contingent upon anything it's absolute.
And then is absolute also a in the in the fact that none of the unseen is hidden from our last pinata, but when it comes to the messengers they are they are given access to some of the unseen some of the
light when the asked the professor thought about this several times, and he did not, you know, he told them that I'm gonna be able to live up to a level, you know, it's not just with my Lord, no one will, will no one knows it, and no one
can reveal it except or expose it except him. So that knowledge of the messengers is contingent upon his permission, the knowledge of the messengers is also limited, it is not absolute, like the knowledge of Allah, the knowledge of the unseen, that Allah has. But then, so that's the messengers and we understand the as messengers can be given some access to some of the unseen and because they do need this to show
the people their credibility and to prove their Prophethood and things of that nature, but what about other people who are not messengers, can they have any access to the unseen
Yes, they can have some access they can see, it is called karma, karma also are basically natural says, basically transients suspension of the universal order
for a particular purpose. Karma means grace. Karma means to be graceful towards someone to took from someone to be generous towards someone. So karma comes from this allows, it's a manifestation of laws, generosity towards those people. But it is not only it is not only to honor people, sometimes it's to help them it's their system, sometimes someone in the beginning of his path needs a little bit of assistance. So he may be showing some Paramount or, you know, some interruptions of the universal order for him, to assist them and they should not be diluted by this, they should not think that they are at the end of the path, they may be just at the beginning. And a Lost Planet.
Allah wants to push them once to propel them forward once they assist them. So it's not only an it's not always an indication that someone reached the end of the path, someone could be just at the very beginning, someone could actually be immersed in sin and be granted like a form of karma to pull them out of
the, you know, this environment or this lifestyle.
interruption of universal order can happen to a lot of people for a lot of reasons.
And we said before that for non Muslims for us, it could be acquired through spiritual discipline,
to have this ability to see through things
And to tell things apart, can be acquired through spiritual discipline, but the kurama in terms of you know, to honor someone that is for
him that is for the you know, the the
Dahlia which has pretty much no translation. So, the idea of Allah subhanaw taala are the ones that are granted karamat
to be honored, you know, but other other people can have some parameters
for their own in a you know, benefit for to be assisted helped, and so on. Someone could be having like a very hard time and a last minute thought I would show them something
to basically alleviate some of their hardship.
But then in this case, that what is the difference between the karamat of those people that are mad that raises the last panel, tada grants to
people other than the prophets and messengers, two very important differences, two extremely important differences, that karma that some people may have, who are nonprofits and messengers are not certain are not certain, they may not always be true, you know. So, or maybe I should not say this, if it is a government, it is true, but what I'm saying here is, when when they have when they predict something, for instance,
based on inspiration or disclosure, that inspiration or disclosure may be imagined that times not always certain, in other words, you know, for the prophets and messengers, it cannot be uncertain, it cannot be basically hit and miss sometimes hit and sometimes miss, because that would basically taint their credibility. You know, that, you know, Our Messengers should not be telling people about things and then they
they don't come true.
But for other than the messengers, it is not always certain, therefore, they should not rely on them, like prophets and messengers would rely on disclosure, or why it's not a matter of why, like direct revelation is just inspiration. So
inspiration, so you should not rely on them. Are they at the end of the day? helpful? Yes, we will come back and say that they may be helpful for sure.
But, but but, but that is an important difference here, between the disclosure to the NBR, which is a ye which is the rekt why revelation and to the LDS, and to the other believers, which is a form of adhan, it's, it's good, as far as good omen is concerned, you know, it's a good omen, it's some, but in some, it's not something that you rely on completely, and you're certain of its veracity.
The other difference here is that it is not to be shown off for credibility for the acquisition of more credibility. So I will, I will, yeah, they say that the cover that they can see their karma,
like centers with concealed their sins, they're very protective of their karma, they conceal them, they are not going around, showing them off, to earn the credibility because after all, that is not, you know, an appropriate behavior of overlay. So, but that's the messengers show them off, because the the difference between the margins are the margins to being shown off, you know, to prove, you know, I want you to believe me, about what I what I convey to you or what I relate to you from God. Here, here are my proofs, here are my credentials, here are my my desert, but when it comes to the weather, why does the weather you need to do this, except them and maybe very rarely was someone who
is not Muslim or like, you know, impress someone, but but not for public consumption, not for her and and credibility among the public not for earning status, or anything of that nature, they should be concealed, that they shall not be shown off, that they do not, they are not to prove credibility, that will he does not need to prove credibility, because at the end of the day, what the wilayah does, if he is a scholar, and he is he teaches the people things is basically to tell them that this is what the messenger had told us. And this is the interpretation and this is the interaction
They should make sense linguistically it should be, you know, something that is consistent with the interpretation of the righteous predecessors and so on and so forth. So, he is not he does not need to tell the people, now you follow me
blindly, because at the end of the day when you follow the messenger, it is certainly not blind following in the in the negative sense of the word, but to some extent that is blind following, is he or not he, there are no you're not questioning the messenger.
The you're only asking, how do we do this? And you're not asking him? Why should we do it? You're asking him how we do, how do we do it, and if you ever asked him, Why should we do it, it is not basically, to determine whether you will act upon it or not, it is basically for the comfort of your heart, and for your also ability to explain it better to others and so on and so forth.
So, the these are important differences between margins and karma, important differences are dissolved or certain they don't ever miss cut a mark may not be a certain, particularly when it comes to disclosure. The other one is the fact that margins that are to be
demonstrated to the people to prove the messenger ship, the prophethood of the Prophet, karma are not by default are not.
So, when someone talks, you know, talks about karma, or how they have disclosures or so on and so forth.
You particularly do not
it may come as a coincidence, it's not like someone trying to show them off. In fact, time Rahim Allah
gives like many examples of the philosophy of Moroccan Allah in, in modality silicium in this particular chapter, this particular station, so he tells of so many things that they may have predicted and the became true through and he gives so many examples. And he says that the older disciples of a magnet I may know a lot more than I do. But he told them, for instance, when he went to Egypt, and they told them that you may be killed,
there was like a particular ruler, that that was not particularly
friendly towards, towards a man. So they told him, he will be killed. He said, No, I will not be killed. They told them, they will put you in jail. He said, Yes, they will.
And then I will spend this much time and I'll come out and I will preach, you know, and I will basically preach to the sun and so on and so forth. And they said that everything he said did happen. They all he also foretold an invasion by the Tatars, even before they mobilize their troops from the point of origin, they told them that they will come and invade. And then they were concerned about you know, slavery and massacre, he told them no, this time, they will not do any of that, this time, there will only they will only be interested in money. And then when the theater is invaded, they will own the they were only interested in you know, and money.
They did not particularly cause any bloodshed.
And then there was another time where he was trying to recruit the people and try to recruit the Sultan and brought him from Egypt, to fight against the doctors in in the Battle of shock hub. And he himself was one of the horsemen in that battle. And so, he, so he was telling them that he was trying to sort of comfort them and he was telling them that he will win this, this battle against the authors. And then they told him saying Sharla you know, and he said akuto hot topic and latterly
for affirmation not for contingency. So it you know, and then they kept on sort of pushing him and pushing him and and then he said to them, it is written in the preserve a tablet that you would win.
And that was like, you know, sometimes they they you don't do this like you should not be doing this. It's like if you had a salary one time when he said
If he you know, he's about
a couple months or if he actually comes into Makkah while I'm in Makkah, I will be clear of him,
clear of whom, you know, clear of God, you know, so he will not come in. He said Abuja is not going to make it to Mecca and he was actually marching towards Mecca. And there is one day before he reached Mecca, he died.
But Sophia, and that statement, we did say this before, that statement is certainly like,
a little bit shocking.
But he is comfortable. He was comfortable with his disclosure to the point where he made that statement. And this is a state of mbsr expansion.
You know, affability with Allah subhanaw taala, it's like, you do not do like them. Because, you know, they can handle this stuff. It's like, you walk behind someone, or you jump behind
like an athletic, he, they make it, you fall. So don't don't imitate them in this regard, but at the same time, hungry standard that they they have, like, sort of their own
stations that we have not reached yet.
So he said, and certainly the Muslim, the Muslims won in the Battle of shock hub. But why did he say this? Why, why why he wanted, you know, basically to strengthen their hearts. He wanted to tell them because they have, you know, these are the Tatars that they have been beating the Muslims over and over and over again, he wanted to tell them you will win, don't go into in the into the this, thinking that you will lose, you will win, I swear that you will win. And then he was when they just bothered him, he was forced to tell them that this is written in desk in the preserve a tablet, he was very confident of his disclosure, in this case,
but like I said, you don't imitate them in this regard, you understand that at the end of the day, regardless of his comfort,
his disclosure is still uncertain, is still uncertain. You know, it would be certain if it was a prophet,
he can be as confident as he wants as comfortable as he wants anyway, he could be as comfortable or confident in his disclosure as he wants, but disclosures are certain only for the prophets and messengers. The second thing they should not be showing off here, he was telling them because of a particular sort of illegitimate
legitimate cause here the cause here is to strengthen their hearts to encourage them to motivate them to fight like they're going to win. Not to fight thinking that they will lose because they have been losing to that authors forever.
So that's, you know, because I you know, I know that we spent too much time on this but or so much time, not too much time so much time on this, but it
is an important matter.
Then the sheikh said hey, Allah ferrata Raja.
It is a three levels and Oda philosophy Toria to Nadia Ratan Tata Tata, Lisa and in washy and fellow Emery Mara had the submarine read and saw that in La La utako holla mukerjea what are you about? hooghly sahibi ha
Nakia Nakia Johanna to mA baja
to Sharon I in in one I'm just Dora hedeman What am I to be with Jude?
That's a somewhat complicated convoluted a little bit but he says that it is transient and rare for us. There is the first degree transient and rare for us, which descends on the uncultivated tongue the once in a lifetime for the need of a sincere seeker to hear it. The reason of its utterance is not traceable, and one who others it is insignificant. This is something that cannot be differentiated from fortune telling and its likes. Because it does not refer to certainty and does not emanate from knowledge and is not driven by an existence state and existence had spiritual state or something.
So he's saying that
This is an army veteran manipulator army. This is a good good shot by a bad shooter.
So ferocity sometimes can come out on out of the mouth of someone who is completely insignificant. You will not expect to that for us would come out of this person because they don't have any state or status and or spiritual state that would qualify them to have harasser but does not wanna listen and watch a tank that is not even hateful that is not even in remembrance someone who is not in remembrance, and that is to say that wisdom can be still harvested from the uncultivated hearts. Wisdom could be still harvested from the uncultivated hearts and he's saying here, what so why, why so you're
like anyone you know, something
about the unseen can be told by someone who does not have any ranking does not have any status with Allah subhanaw taala why luchador descemet Mr. Eden sobre, La Jolla. He says,
For the need of a sincere seeker to hear it for a need of a sincere seeker to hear. So Allah subhanaw taala would use this person to tell another person who is deserving of hearing something
could be like a good omen for instance, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam liked good omens, the prophet like the good omens, he said and Hobbes is agreed upon.
was well hey, boo ladwa. Wanna tiara. Well, he hasn't paid Amen. fedloan has an Arizona law pilot Kalamata Eva, or he said that Kadima
sorry, huh? So the the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said la de la tierra. There is sometimes they translate this as there is no infection. There is no transitive disease, but the better translation is contagiousness, there is no contagiousness, and there is no bird Omen,
or bird omens
like even omens,
or Hey boy, Alan Hansen, and I like good omens. They said what is a good omen O Messenger of Allah, He said a good word. A good word.
good omens, you may hear them from anyone. Not necessarily from the most cultivated hearts but you could hear good omen from anyone. And in this case, it is a beshara for you, it is a good thing for you. If you needed this, if you needed to hear it for support or for encouragement or any of that. That is a good beshara for you or heavily for Allah. Allah has hasn't, of course the hardware, no contagiousness without error and no evil omens. That all that is not understood literally. lodwar means hardware is not an an independent, efficient cause. Remember, the four causes harm hardware is not an independent, efficient cause. Other In other words, that it does not work, except with the
permission and leave of Allah.
The prophet SAW Selim say when the plague
basically takes place in one city, don't enter it and don't leave it. That is the idea of the modern quarantine. He pointed out that idea 1400 years ago, don't go out don't go in. So he's saying there is contagiousness in this case, he said run away from the leper, like a runaway from the lion. But at the same time he ate was a leper from the same dish. He ate with a liver from the same dish. Why did he do this? To show the people to show the people why did he say this and do this to show the people that there is contagiousness and he wants to be careful, we want to be cautious. But at the same time,
you know, it only works with the diva and permission of Allah subhanaw taala. So that does not mean that we all you know abandon those who are in need, there will be still people that need to take care of them. And he has a prophet sallallahu sallam, he was one of those people I you know, like, I am not going to run away from the liver who will give him the message, you know you as a like a physician or a nurse or this or that would not run away from the liver who's going to treat him except and so on and so forth.
Now, and that is the importance of having a comprehensive understanding of the hobbies and not basically sort of having like a sporadic
have like a limited number of hobbies and
that's why we need to basically study the interpretation because those scholars of the past they have this comprehensive knowledge and then they'll put things together before they interpret them. Whereas we could be hasty and not having that comprehensive knowledge and then we arrive at the completely wrong and sometimes disastrous understanding okay. So, the first type of philosophy is clear, right? It is
like a transient thing that that is, can be harvested from an uncultivated heart a tangle that does not remember Allah subhanaw taala that comes out of that person, for the need of another person who may may hear it, this cannot be sorted out from from Ghana,
or Kiana basically the fortune telling, because the person is not worthy of it.
So use it as a good omen, but it doesn't mean any more than that. You could use it as a good omen, that doesn't mean anything and, but if it is bad, then the Prophet said laterra, no bad omens, no evil omens, this regard them they are, is the bird Omen because they used to, if they if they came out, and the bird, you know, if they came out of their homes, and the barrier that came from one side, from the left side, sort of inverse, you know, that they would feel bad for the rest of the day, they'll be pessimistic for the rest of the day. And the Prophet hated that. And for beta. So if you hear a good thing, you know, good, you know, get motivated, if you hear about saying, ignore it,
you know, don't be deterred by just move on.
And then he, he said, a barrage of Fannia which is the second level for us to gentleman Garcia Mm
hmm. Because that email for us, that is the fruit of the man or woman so hot that it sprouts from the true hat or the true state, whatever only noodle cash and shines with the light of disclosure, prostitution, I'm in regards to a man a second level is the philosophy that is basically granted to the believers. This is something that is, you know, harvested from the cultivated heart now not the uncultivated heart. It is the result of Eman the result of faith, the result of spiritual stays the result of spiritual refinement, spiritual training, spiritual discipline, and you go through this, and Sahar basically staying up late in the night, Jews stayed up late at night in victory in
remembrance, in prayer
in resume, doing something good, you know, looking out
also looking after people and looking out for the in interest of people and
like they used to do
like on a sign
on who sign up gnarly, long line home.
When he died, the found out the you know, 100 families in Medina
basically suddenly lost their sustenance because he used every night to go out and carry food and drop it in front of their doors
in privacy, and then make it back home, you know, wearing this, covering his face, and then make it back home. No one knew
where this is coming from until he died. And all of them figured out the next day.
That was actually him. So if you if you do this, and then you have also experienced do or which is hunger, but hunger not is not a virtue in and of itself, like you're fasting for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala and you're cutting down on eating for that spiritual
refinement to release years spirit from the captivity of the carnal desires, which could be certainly
a burdensome for the spirit. You know, the concern the sort of the constant concern with karma desires with fleshy, lower desires of the body could certainly harm the spirit
So if this is something that can be cultivated, this is something that can be acquired.
And he says it shines with the light of disclosure shines with the light of disclosure. So it could be a ham. And then it could be real disclosure, it could be an inspiration, but it could be also real disclosure will like gives you a transient access, not guaranteed because you're nonprofit, but
yet is still an honorable thing
to service. And then he talks about the third level ferocity in Syria, and most notable for us. Lamb.
That's the libera year that is not produced by celebration, the sun and mastana industry on our arms, what comes out, comes forth from the chosen tongues, either explicitly, or through symbolism, either explicitly, or through symbolism, you know, this is the third phase, the phase of self annihilation self absorption, or I'm sorry, so formulation or absorption into the divine.
