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

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa sallam while that was to me less than one, Li or sabini, over one hour by, we start the verse number 16, the story of levy Moosa, I select was there, and he did. So, again, some background on him Did

00:00:18--> 00:00:27

you notice when I talk about key Did they say Are they selected, because they asked some opinions that there was a NaVi,

00:00:28--> 00:01:19

the majority of you would believe that he was not an A B, but he was a one to one he loves the island. And therefore, they would say that Guardiola will be pleased with him, or they would just say, olalia come out with added mercy upon him. He was, of course, a special slave of Allah, he was definitely no ordinary person, in the sense that, you know, he's just an ordinary believer. So this is indicative of the fact that, despite, you know, not being able to reach the level of nabee, there are still levels of piety that we could still attain, because all the data did not stop with or, you know, that he was close relationship with slaves after a certain person doesn't like the MBR comes

00:01:19--> 00:01:20

in and also this capsule and

00:01:21--> 00:01:24

then there are other individuals in the Quran like this as well.

00:01:25--> 00:02:14

The majority are of the opinion that say that Maria Maria salat wa salam was also of course, a worthy of Allah Subhana Allah, and miracles happen to her as well. So these a lot of there's a lot of superstition and myths and so forth around the concept of a wedding. Right. So a lot of people would just jump to the to the medical aspect to save their money. I'm certainly had miracles happen to her. You know, she'd be worshiping Allah alone, in the confines of the masjid and the fruit will appear from the way that we'd be out of season. He there is a person receiving knowledge from Allah subhana wa tada and special, a special set of laws that he had to undertake, which would not be

00:02:14--> 00:02:17

permissible for anyone else to follow. Right?

00:02:18--> 00:02:49

These are called caromont. Right? So it's also miracles. But in Arabic, it's a different word in English as medicals medicals with an Arabic margin set from the one I just asked, which means to read it capable. So arges your diesel? I just means to be incapable. An average is that your diesel warranties that means to them the incapable? Because the miracles of the prophets, they will fail is specifically designed to be

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

to be what's the word unrepeatable?

00:02:55--> 00:03:01

Yeah, I think I don't know if that's the right word. So if you can't replicate it replicable. It's the world

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

sees me

00:03:04--> 00:03:19

individually. I mean, normally, we speak about the inevitability of a particular. But before all the miracles were designed, so that they come with it with a challenge to the people, which will prove the veracity of the claim.

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

It's not just random things that happened.

00:03:23--> 00:04:03

So in that being would come in and say, I am a messenger of God, and I'm coming to you with this message accepted from me believing what I have to say. So naturally, even we don't believe anything anyone sees, but they would come with proof. And the proof would be these miracles, essentially, it's something that happens that's completely out of the ordinary. And it's specifically going to be something that people won't be able to replicate in that time in that context. And it will it will occur along with the proof of study along with the claim what claim that I'm going to be profitable while

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

it's not when somebody does something apparently miraculous, and then afterwards comes and claims Well, you know, I did that because I'm gonna be able to ask their opinion that would always happen in that order. So those are the MBA that we learn in the science of Akita with the heat under the chapter of

00:04:23--> 00:04:38

the Russo Knights are meant to be the hamanaka de Vaca. To be heroes. To me, when we discuss the Russo we discuss the quantities of them, and we memorize them so this is a sentence in some Nunez to feed or PETA, etc.

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

There are other miracles which also take place at the hands of the earlier. So people who become symptoms that Allah Subhana Allah that Allah azza wa jal, Rachmat allow certain miraculous things to take place from them or at their hands. The difference is, it's never accompanied by

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

Have prostitute or have anything for that matter, they don't come in silica. I'm very pious to prove my by the watch the way to make this medical now. So they don't do that it just a demo let's show something that actually this happens

00:05:18--> 00:05:20

the objective is never the medical

00:05:21--> 00:06:00

the objective Indian life in these stories are never the miracles they are governed purely by the relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada. And many people misunderstand this or misinterpret this. So when we speak about the earlier the speaker primarily apothecary tools, it within service in our own culture is the fact that we refer to the the grace of our pioneers, not as graves, Mama not as popular not as a gay football. What are your anything Oh, that suit, we call them What?

00:06:01--> 00:06:31

cameras from the word karamat. So the emphasis was more on the medicals. So in the minds of the masses in the minds of the masses, the medical is the be all and end all. And this is part of, of, you know, just the human psyche, people are very impressed by these feats. So I've been very pleased with magic and all these things. But they were stern warnings throughout the Austin morning throughout our teachings, that do not be cabin,

00:06:32--> 00:06:59

do not become entangled in this belief that anyone does something apparently miraculous, that automatically justifies anything and everything from that person, they must be biased, and they must be amazing. And they must be close to Allah. Because remember, that job will come with his medicals. And she thought has been given power by Allah subhanaw taala, as well. And the gene also have certain abilities, that this means nothing, this doesn't mean that they are

00:07:01--> 00:07:06

close to it looks behind your dad, or that one should worship they will believe in them, you know,

00:07:08--> 00:07:49

interact with him in any way. That's very important. So genuine, by the witnesses the thing that they don't make a show of these vehicles, they don't go around and shame people, you know, what should I can you just wait with your cell phone was charged, something like that, they don't do that kind of thing. Because then we'll be ready to be humble. And the opposite of humility is arrogance or pride. And if that pride in the world, because to Allah, so genuine, genuine earlier, we'll open the recording to have seen if you see someone flying in the sky,

00:07:50--> 00:07:56

but they don't obey the rules of Allah know that that is a shaytaan that is not close to a karamba.

00:07:57--> 00:08:04

That doesn't make sense. So the person might be performing miracles. But that doesn't mean that automatically you need to be placed by this person.

00:08:05--> 00:08:16

So this is very important in our day and age. Because as you know, in any movement with any ism, you always get your braces you get you go to bed.

00:08:17--> 00:08:27

So we also have our crazies. And it starts out from the sincere desire to focus on spirituality. And

00:08:28--> 00:09:08

this becomes formalized, but some of these formalities goes off the track. So initially, it was a good intention, you know, we're gonna formalize spirituality we'll have a teacher will call the teacher she will call this movement at scale with a subwoofer, etc. And it's all good and well, but then sometimes if we're not governed properly, if we don't, if we don't focus on the outcome of Allah, purely, they could go wrong, and it often happens. So this is not saying that everything under the banner of the zoo for Sophia, Saskia is is bad off the track, but it does happen. That does happen quite often.

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

How does one make these determinations of whether they are

00:09:15--> 00:09:32

authentic? To follow or not? It's again back to what I said a moment ago is the laws of Allah other laws all the data being observed. And if that is being observed, and so piety is being attained, then are hungry levels good. But if

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

the aliens

00:09:36--> 00:09:59

are good, but the means are not, there is not justified. People think like this, the means justify the aliens. So the objective is by the you know, the level or the level consumers. So anything that gives us the hunger level to know, right? So, like smoking marijuana and running around the fire, naked and all these things that people do actually do.

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

It's not justified means. So even if you claim that you get to justify him, No, it doesn't work that way.

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

So now, if somebody comes in they claim rely on the connectivity or when you have a lot of people claim that this person is the one that's between that person and Allah, I find it very strange when when people claim that this person is a one a over that person is the one you have. How do you know? Did they say so? Did you see a badge? You know? While he, I don't quite get it. If they are, it's between them and Allah, Allah knows best. I'm not going to say they are not going to say they are not say very pious people. Mashallah. However,

00:10:45--> 00:11:28

if somebody claims to be so close to Allah, but you can, apparently from the apparent they are breaking our rules, then that, that doesn't come to get certain weird things. Like somebody saying, you know, they don't have to make Syrah because the shape is going to intercede with maybe off or the shift doesn't make sense. Because in front of everybody looks like he's not doing anything, but his art is actually playing and the weird things like this, it happens it exists. Okay? So this is not the type of we live with Allah speaks about the Quran, without the prophets or speaks about the mission. Right? So these are huge concepts. And I'm just like, throwing out like this live

00:11:28--> 00:11:34

discussion and if you have any questions at the end, by all means to ask, you also have

00:11:35--> 00:12:13

the genuine, the genuine concern spirituality comes under the same name as a facilitator. And it's genuine, because these are genuine obedience to Allah Tada, Sharia, and a special focus on attaining righteousness. And that focus is the thing via the sooner you remember, in Islam, there is no better way to Allah than through the prophets or sons who have life. So if it's an emphasis on the following the student restriction of Quran has gone from Quran and Sunnah etc. And that is the

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

thinking went on left behind with the island being good hungry that great you know, you're on the path of righteousness Mashallah. So is the good with the bad Exactly.

00:12:27--> 00:12:36

said don't, do not allow yourself to be deceived by feats of amazing, amazing acts.

00:12:38--> 00:12:59

You get people who don't believe it all at all. But they will do things like take a sword and cut himself and Oh, look, we're not bleeding. Who knows balance himself on a stick in the air looks like they fly. But they're doing it in the name of Hinduism. So does that mathematically prove that Hinduism is the heart?

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

So similarly, in Islam,

00:13:03--> 00:13:44

you get people doing exactly the same things, and showing them look, this is this is ethics of this must be a miracle of Allah subhana wa Berg, if a law has been broken, it can be right. Why does Allah allow these things take place, the same reason why he loves that job to come with with miraculous feats, why gives shaitan certain powers why it gives the gene set powers that is free will you get to make the decision yourself but you must be guided by the guidance that Allah had set down. So I hope that kind of sums up the discussion of putting Wi Fi in its place to do it all of

00:13:46--> 00:13:57

all, we like you and I are capable of reaching the levels of this visa or the glove service for HANA data so much so that you are afraid of Allah?

00:13:58--> 00:14:20

The answer is absolutely. Absolutely. And these are happy to see that the beautiful the Psalms is one of my one of my favorite decorations of the prophets arsenal. And it goes briefly, my agony when he and for the other two will have to save our homes, a friend of mine addict, a war upon that person who sees all those things.

00:14:22--> 00:15:00

And that sets the basis of the first thing is do no harm. If you harm others, you're declaring war against Allah, Allah is declaring war against you. Then overseas that mostly throws close to be with anything except the ones that make fun of the one that's life. So you now know from that, you can decide how to go to LA you can decide this is going to take you to our This is going to bring me closer to Allah that's gonna bring you closer if you didn't do what Allah made compulsory first. So you made certain things fall. Anyway. So the thing is how long that's the baseline of laws you have to follow. That is not

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

shortcuts around that, okay.

00:15:03--> 00:15:20

In the head, it goes on and says venous leg continues to grow close to me being never filled with muscle. Now, there were some things that are not required by the Sharia, but they are desired by the Sharia. So, an abundance of those things, and then

00:15:22--> 00:15:42

until meaning that person is consistent upon that, I do have, until I love that slave, the when I love that slave in the hand, it goes on and says, I become the eyes of which they see the ears with which the feet with which they will the head to reach the grass. If they asked me, I give them a secret from me, I grant him a few.

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

And that point,

00:15:46--> 00:16:07

it's like the cross the barrier. And that's what we call relay. So it starts off by speaking about his arms, a friend of mine, it was on that person, and then it kind of leads us into how do you become afraid of a lot in that sense. So it's not some magical recipe, or that as a certain image, you know, it's it's something that's attainable by every believer.

00:16:09--> 00:16:29

It's, it's easy to spell it out the way I just need. It's a whole different story to actually walk the walk, right? Because essentially, we say, love according to the rules of Islam proper. And they drown yourself in righteousness and be consistent on that for an extended period of time.

00:16:30--> 00:16:43

And then there's another message deputation, at the end, you know, overseas Africa is an issue, you see the as mutual. So you're trying to, like, touchy between

00:16:44--> 00:16:53

non Muharram people is not permissible in Islam, the only person you can touch your wife, right?

00:16:54--> 00:17:05

So if you have a person saying, No, I always become my hands. So lady can kiss my, it's fine. It's all good. Because I will add beyond desire.

00:17:07--> 00:17:51

You get this type of claim, oh, a personal sign up. I don't have to do these things. Because I've reached the level of piety we desire doesn't affect me any longer. That's all nonsense. Remember, always that is the ambia the prophets follow these laws in Who on earth could come and say that they are taking profits in the day not affected by these things. Now what it means is that person woke Stokes eats sleeps, drinks, things sees yours, everything through the lens of auto, please read this piece online. So then I'm going to watch something recent pieces of you know, you get the picture. It's not that they become a lot nanofibrillar

00:17:53--> 00:18:02

there's a lot of myths, misconceptions, right. And some of them are built into our culture as well. And I think that as time goes by,

00:18:03--> 00:18:15

we kind of sift through those elements that we need to move away from and we move towards the more commercial elements. I guess nothing wrong with visiting a grave. It's a command of the profits of our center.

00:18:16--> 00:18:32

You know, I used to play but you for visiting the greatest but now listen, pay the graves of pious predecessors is no different to that. But what do you do with the graves? That's the problem that you know you come into, so going to the greatest reflection,

00:18:34--> 00:18:52

it's actually for for us, and you can see this by the suit mentor is that you must say we are going to greet the graves. I said I'm Monica dalla camina camina camina. in the lobby, Kublai Khan, masala Milena, what a cool idea. I greet you Oh, yeah. habitants of the graves of the believers, male and female.

00:18:55--> 00:18:57

We will soon be joining you

00:18:58--> 00:19:15

respond to the greeting and asking Allah for us and for you, to grant us all forgiveness. That's the door when we go and visit the graves. Then there's no other specific soon as like gold patch others who make this ticket it's a sort of vague, because the moment you start incorporating

00:19:17--> 00:19:32

how many of the people stand in the making, knows that they may be tied to Allah? And how can you think that we can go after the person maybe. And then it goes obviously to other things like people leaving offerings, the money laters

00:19:34--> 00:19:35

food

00:19:36--> 00:19:50

and they people bowing down to the grave. All of this happens in our own communities as well. So that's why it's all these things that we need to you know, sort of clear up with people. It has to do with our belief in our keto diet.

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

And of course, people believing in less harmful things but still problematic beliefs.

00:20:01--> 00:20:21

I remember like growing up in people who don't hatch and they would go and greet the grandmas, which is fine. I mean, it's like a cultural thing. It's not necessary, it's not a tsunami, but then I didn't remember specifically the collecting water from the men's like, Bonanza, that special order, you know, kill and

00:20:23--> 00:20:25

other other practices,

00:20:26--> 00:20:31

people would go in the middle of the night and get good economics.

00:20:33--> 00:20:42

And then, of course, this this certain, popularly held beliefs like nothing ever, nothing bad would happen to Cape Town evil. Why?

00:20:44--> 00:21:08

Because we surrounded by drama, I grew up thinking that was the absolute hack, we never gonna get to know. The reason Amina gets nervous because this parameter around the reason I'm gonna get as quick, so all of those things, so I get the sentiment, right, but do keep in mind that they are ambia. And inside was gonna want to meet all of the above and more.

00:21:09--> 00:21:20

So if the NBA has to undergo difficulties and trials and tribulations and the places where they undergo the same type of things, this is obviously a misconception.

00:21:21--> 00:22:08

Okay, I hope that this taken in the correct light, the idea is not to bash any form of culture or cultural belief. At the end of the day, we are governed by what a library view what the province has revealed, and we need to strike that balance. So we appreciate the culture, always appreciate the culture, I don't believe in the eradication of our culture, because it is our culture that preserved as, as a community we are today, we would be would not be existing and not paying for these cultural practices. All we need to do is just sift through again, the good, the bad, and the ugly. And it's as simple as that and do it with wisdom. And do it gradually. So that you know, you don't you don't

00:22:08--> 00:22:21

you have an adverse effect. And you get this a lot so some people they study deal. They come to learn about these problematic things. And the firstly action needs to change everything instantly overnight.

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

And it doesn't work. Remember the preference or some one of the main things that you needed to eradicate was what? idol worshipping? Right. Now just think for a second.

00:22:37--> 00:22:40

When did he destroy the idols around the character?

00:22:44--> 00:22:48

When he conquered Makkah, when was that? Which year?

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

No, not really failure nothing third, you have profited.

00:23:09--> 00:23:23

So the profits are some remained in Makkah for how many years before went to Medina 13 years? How many years after the hegira? Did he come back to the conquest of Makkah. Eight years

00:23:24--> 00:23:56

13 years went by he didn't touch the idols in Africa and other atheists are invited Medina didn't touch the idols in Africa. Only the last three years of his life was established enough was the community ready enough to go through such a major change and we talking about idol worshipping around the garba. So always remember that example, when when considering change towards that which is more credit with energy screen.

00:23:58--> 00:24:01

So any patients are welcome at the individual.

00:24:02--> 00:24:09

When you call him sir if I remember we used to say to his young lad who is need to serve Him.

00:24:11--> 00:24:44

He will not finish the Apple logo image Amanda rain, Adobe reach the point with the two oceans are the two bodies of water meet. Oh, Emily, I hope Uber or many many years passed by in in terms of our travel. So he had a determination to find this person who was more knowledgeable than him. We now know as he there are other pronunciations of his name. There are like seven or eight different pronunciations. How did he did this? It's all a bunch of different pronunciation Allah knows makes the most popular.

00:24:46--> 00:24:47

Excuse me.

00:24:48--> 00:24:55

Okay. So this is the determination that he had in terms of the pursuit of knowledge.

00:25:01--> 00:25:30

Knowledge is the only thing that the prophets on sem is commanded to ask more of in the corner, what could rock be Sydney and say, Oh my god, increasingly in knowledge, we can have many, many different discussions around knowledge. I mean, Islam is supposed to be the Dean of knowledge. It's the religion that began with the Quran. Okay. And we have a lot to the main debate because we not the nation of Decalogue.

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

There's so many indications of this.

00:25:35--> 00:25:50

These the secondhand bookshop in in Gordon's Bay is the living Gordon's way. So this is a secondhand bookshop, they are at bikini beach, very nice. You can book shops, if you shop in all sorts of books, they are extremely,

00:25:51--> 00:25:52

it's really cheap.

00:25:53--> 00:25:57

But the one that poopoo you already if we're going to find these books of Islam?

00:25:59--> 00:26:45

So at one point actually inquired from the owner, why is this present? So maybe? It's like, it's a bit sad that, you know, it comes in and goes, so she actually told me that these two things these two reasons, on the one hand, yes, is they do it in the books and is now it gets purchased by non Muslims, and by Muslims. Because this is a key interest from the non Muslims about Islam, but I'm going to do is that she doesn't get the influx of Muslims bringing books and make it reading the books and then buying other books. And the same thing can be seen if you go to into exclusive books, you look for the books, and it's really, really limited, I would have to actually ask them to

00:26:45--> 00:26:52

acquire a book. So we don't have very keen interest in terms of reading in our mo which is really sad.

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

This this young boy, his name, if you shall be known as we learn from other sources of Tafseer.

00:27:02--> 00:27:21

And now we continue falana Bala majima edema, we move on and fuchsia reached the point where the two bodies of water methylated no way the two bodies of waters get to meet, they will go to a point where they so the two oceans make a meeting, they will not know that

00:27:23--> 00:27:24

we really discussed there is not a point.

00:27:27--> 00:27:30

They were told by Allah, you're going to get a sign.

00:27:31--> 00:27:49

So you would take they were to take a fish in a basket in some sort of a container. The fishes Of course, paid and this would be the meal by the sign is that the fish will escape. They didn't quite understand what that means. But landrace

00:27:51--> 00:28:34

nesea hula hula, they reached the point, but they forgot about the fish. So they became unmindful about the fish. We learned from Pepsi this mean that they actually took a nap. And they weren't mindful about the fish. And something happened in the villa moving back in South Africa. And then the fish took its way into the ocean sarama by way of a tunnel. So in the sea we we learned that what this means is a plugin for life to the fish at that point. The fish somehow jumped onto the basket into the water and escaped not just by swimming away, but in a miraculous way. We actually formed like a tunnel as it as it swam through the sea.

00:28:35--> 00:28:38

So they were unmindful. Didn't take note of this. They didn't see this.

00:28:40--> 00:28:54

At least never more sad isn't the SAM because it does see it does is it USIA he because musar isn't LSL for cinemas was was sleeping. He didn't want to tell him at the time and then he forgot to tell him about this. later on.

00:28:56--> 00:29:00

Of course use the median boy boys make mistakes children make mistakes.

00:29:01--> 00:29:03

Fellow manager was

00:29:04--> 00:29:11

when they moved on, commonly federa oni sister they're going after the Nevada Anna listen.

00:29:13--> 00:29:18

It's time for for the mirror. Open afrobasket we need to eat breakfast

00:29:19--> 00:29:27

lacandon Athena insaf Marina Hannah nasaga was now retired. Literally we are exhausted from this travel.

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

Obviously this is an indication here of the type of journey the arduous journey that they would undergo is a lot to be saved for this.

00:29:39--> 00:29:53

The more we put into the pursuit of knowledge, the more we value, the knowledge and a huge part of that is is the cause of the downfall of education in the day and age. We live in

00:29:56--> 00:29:58

some analog media, we begin

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

We need to stop memorizing phone numbers.

00:30:06--> 00:30:08

Obviously, if you don't have your own phone number

00:30:10--> 00:30:21

activated, actually, somebody does not know the phone number. That happens, right? I personally know mine. And my brothers and my wife's. And I think that's about

00:30:22--> 00:30:29

them actually memorize why, because the read the same number since since childhood. Otherwise, it still goes into the smartphone.

00:30:31--> 00:30:34

The same can be seen as we go a bit further back, calculate this.

00:30:37--> 00:30:42

Before the use of calculators, they were more manual ways of calculating people who are smarter than him, right?

00:30:44--> 00:30:50

All of us need to memorize our multiplication tables, for example, do they still do that? I don't know if they do.

00:30:52--> 00:30:58

And even if they do, they'll be able to use it because they can't get it, you can go further back.

00:31:01--> 00:31:03

You can go as far back as the printing takes.

00:31:06--> 00:31:38

Obviously, the main point of discussion would be the internet. But I'm just going to leave that one out there. For now. The printing place was a huge revolution, in terms of the accessibility of knowledge, jammed in the idea of knowledge was passed down before the invention of the printing place. It's in our legacy. And it's amazing what was happening. If you wanted to pause, knowledge refers to person, it's not like this, like me doing it, you just come to the blog, she said, You listen to go home, and forget about

00:31:40--> 00:31:58

you as a formal scholar of Islam and other sciences, you will go to a teacher, right, they say you're doing this book, and I would be the author of this book, I would be the teacher of this book. So you would come and you would physically copy the entire book by hand.

00:32:00--> 00:32:05

Only after you've done that, when you now get the opportunity to read that book to me.

00:32:07--> 00:32:11

I will need to rectify all your mistakes based on my own copy of that book.

00:32:13--> 00:32:13

After that,

00:32:15--> 00:32:40

I will now authorize you that authorization is called ijazah sure you've heard that term before. That's where it comes from. That's the original ijazah only now would you start the reading lab book to me. And I will teach you as we go along. Not my book, not the book, you go to the shop the book, you compete with your own hands. And you will read the title to me at the end of that now you will complete the authorized garden teach the book. That's how

00:32:41--> 00:33:19

classical Islamic scholars, kB jazza. So the books that we have extinct today in an Islamic legacy and there are so many like, you have to know how valuable those books were for this system of passing books down to actually allow them to survive. If you look at a voluminous book, like the magician who has the image now who is encyclopedic work, the ultimate authority in the shadowy school of thought he had about 45 to 50 volumes depending on the print every available copy of that was handwritten.

00:33:20--> 00:33:24

From even though we and at a certain point, the printing press was

00:33:25--> 00:33:31

invented and the people that purchase the books on mass, and then the justice system kind of watered down.

00:33:32--> 00:33:36

The more you put into knowledge, the more you would value it.

00:33:37--> 00:33:43

And of course now via the internet, that is a whole other studio. To sum it all up, it's a matter of supply and demand.

00:33:44--> 00:34:07

you increase the supply, but the demand remains the same economics will teach you that means that the market value drops because it's everywhere. It's always the I can always get it you know I can go on YouTube, I can chickened out on this video etc. Because then it's no longer valuable in my mind when that is part of the dilemma which we are facing now.

00:34:09--> 00:34:11

We move on call away.

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

Now you should say to Nabhi remove that because he's asking for the food and he looks in the basket and he realizes hold on

00:34:20--> 00:34:41

while we windows he will free the fishes get our data do you remember in a way that Illa Sahara when we when we reach the rock? For me Nancy to Hoot I forgot about the fish while Matt and Sally who Illa shaped on atakora and nothing caused me to forget about it except shaitan

00:34:42--> 00:34:47

and he forgot he made me he caused me to forget to mention it to you.

00:34:49--> 00:34:59

This is why we say in them an SEM in a shape on that forgetfulness disruption. It is believed that there's an element to the forgetfulness

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

That's inspired by Satan because it leads to the decline of knowledge. And this isn't the only place to go for me it's mentioned like this is our interpretations to it as well. shape and cause me to forget to remember a lot and therefore I was unmindful, and therefore, I didn't mention this to you. Anyways, what that one has a VLAN field batteries, our agenda, and at that point, the fish escaped in the ocean in a strange way. This was a miraculous way that this fish escaped with horses. Of course, this was the same thing at first for the first time.

00:35:37--> 00:35:39

So he's blaming Chaitanya

00:35:41--> 00:35:48

you don't see in this incident. And you've ever heard about an evil and NaVi Moosa took him to task.

00:35:50--> 00:36:03

What did it tell me about the fish? How could you not tell me about them, we traveling for miles and miles and miles, and we're looking for this person for the two oceans meet the new forgot about that, what's wrong with your stupid way, nothing of that soul.

00:36:04--> 00:36:17

And this wisdom in this as well, because we're talking about education. And in educating youth, it must be accompanied by the Sami concept of tarbiyah, that we are capsules with the rock.

00:36:19--> 00:36:34

It means to nurture to manage to key, because a child is educated, using a lot of key and nurturing. So in now he moves as education, we actually see how it's educating the youth as well.

00:36:36--> 00:36:42

We, of course, went the other way back in the day, especially with Islamic education. Right?

00:36:43--> 00:36:44

You learn with a Lackey.

00:36:46--> 00:36:54

And we Some of us have got, like some serious memories and psychological issues that we ever dealt with. Because we were

00:36:55--> 00:37:15

smacked left, right and center. And parents also have to be cautious of of this, because it's not the method espoused. And, you know, yes, you use a certain amount of fear. But you have to balance that with hope and mercy, you have to, and unfortunately, we do that the opposite. We say, you know, if you're

00:37:18--> 00:37:21

always going to punish, you are always going to push

00:37:23--> 00:37:26

things, right, it means we have almost no huddle after that.

00:37:27--> 00:37:41

It's terrible, the machine becomes a place of fear, a learning point and an excitement for the teacher becomes a fear, even to this day, when I have to sit down and figure out how to run a class for adults for

00:37:42--> 00:37:43

resuscitation.

00:37:44--> 00:38:17

It's always a challenge, because we find that the senior members of society these days sitting in front of a teacher to decide, because what governs what comes to mind is the experiences growing up and having to go recite the excellent pattern the lesson and making a mistake, and being ridiculed or whatever the case may be. So it's something that we need to pose, we need to revise. And we're not saying we're not saying you remove the element of fear completely, but we also parents, it has to be balanced.

00:38:21--> 00:38:39

Call Danica macoun. And Natalie. He said, This is what we were looking for. We were waiting for the moment that the fish will escape for that diner as an email kasasa. So then they retrace the steps. They went back state by state looking for the place with this with this happen.

00:38:40--> 00:38:52

So we don't seem to be Moosa scolding at him reproaching him. Why did the hand with either make him go all the way the end all the way back. We always have to think like this.

00:38:53--> 00:38:56

Everything happens by oldest Come on.

00:38:58--> 00:39:04

Say in a story like this. This is like a whole extra piece of the story. It's not for nothing.

00:39:05--> 00:39:26

Just to take them with you to a victory. They are masons within this. So if you are interested in the Islamic pedagogy, methodology of teaching, and lessons, as far as education is concerned learning and teaching, there's a lot that can be thrown out from the story that requires

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

reflection and detailed analysis far beyond what we're doing right now. But we can we can extract so much the pursuit of knowledge, educating youth, humanity with knowledge, etc.

00:39:41--> 00:39:50

So watch them in Nevada, as retrace the steps having been walking the walk. And they with official digital escape v they come across a slave.

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

A slave the person is not a slave in the eyes, but its slave on one hand, notice that the length reduces hidden away them meaning betina

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

slave from among slaves.

00:40:03--> 00:40:07

is Allah attaching any particular importance to this person?

00:40:09--> 00:40:10

is a yes and no.

00:40:11--> 00:40:18

The yes is always calling this person, our servant. That in and of itself is a huge honor.

00:40:19--> 00:40:25

And it writing we made the beginning of Surah Surah. So behind me, we are ready.

00:40:27--> 00:40:31

That perfect is the one who took the g7 by night, referring to who?

00:40:32--> 00:40:51

Muhammad Sallallahu it was in the year we see a similar thing. So that's the first part the no part is that over doesn't it maybe too much. This is a survey from among our slaves, because the objective is not to magnify hibbett Alexandre torsina it's the story behind the interaction of the two of them.

00:40:53--> 00:41:02

Overseas at a narrow border, Marina, we gave him a special mercy from outside meaning from us from

00:41:03--> 00:41:11

what I love now who Milla do know. And we taught him from us knowledge.

00:41:12--> 00:41:40

So something that stands out in this verse is always activating everything back to a lot less anyone becomes over infatuated with him, because he's got this special law and he's got this special knowledge and then our message very clear. He's a slave from our state, we gave him Mercy from Us, we told him knowledge lifted from us. So I was making it very clear, we over the basic things are coming from.

00:41:45--> 00:41:50

Okay, now we move on to the next section. This was now

00:41:51--> 00:41:54

at number 90.

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

Look at this now.

00:42:13--> 00:42:15

Again, if we are

00:42:16--> 00:42:21

people who are interested in the Islamic pedagogy or wanting to extract

00:42:23--> 00:42:41

you know, the beauty of learning and teaching Islam, there's a lot that you can take from the study. Nothing moves or never moves. As I said that was one of the greatest and be able to ever is speaking. Carla, Carla Moosa, who says

00:42:44--> 00:42:56

to alamanni mimma on vitosha. May I please follow you. So that you may teach me from what you have been taught in terms of guidance?

00:42:57--> 00:43:04

Wow, look at what the user isn't narration that speaks upon some metaphysical stuff.

00:43:05--> 00:43:09

feminine Moosa hit medical note.

00:43:10--> 00:43:20

Again, it's metaphysical, you know, it's not something that makes sense in the physical realm. He hit medical mode to the extent that he caused some damage to his eye.

00:43:21--> 00:43:28

This is a, this is for workers Moosa popolari. The same Moosa who defended the cup.

00:43:30--> 00:43:31

And

00:43:32--> 00:43:40

for workers, sounds like a karate chop for workers, a Moosa moussaka, one shot from a boy Father, I like any day, this is that

00:43:42--> 00:44:14

he's coming to this person who is never made before, for only one reason, our dog he knows more than you. He's got characters that you don't have. And he can see me in the most humble voice, asking his permission, not teach me something, not adequate, etc. He's asking, May I follow you. So in that regard, that to knowledge is not just a temporary thing. It's not like a short term thing. through knowledge takes time and takes

00:44:16--> 00:44:20

dedication, because he's actually going to follow this plan now.

00:44:21--> 00:44:33

And only one has to be taught from the guidance that he received. So Mimosa is very hungry for knowledge. And this is despite the fact that as far as status is concerned, who's greater

00:44:34--> 00:44:46

Nabi Musa Santos una, Mashallah one of the brothers in the class. And this happens often so the brother get to speak to me about his own education. And he's like,

00:44:47--> 00:45:00

he's achieved, you know, many, many things in his own field. But the we learn and we grow when we have humility and knowledge. So I might know a few things in

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

One field

00:45:01--> 00:45:21

but the moment that gets to my head and I think I missed the sun when I'm depriving myself of knowledge in every other field around me so we should always have this level of humility and again there's a lot that can be taken from that as well Carla in Atlanta study America savara feeder system you will never ever be able to be patient with me.

00:45:22--> 00:45:33

Now your hidden knows these gonna come with some cheap stuff, some out of the out of the world things that nobody else will really be able to understand.

00:45:35--> 00:45:43

What gave us view I'd love to hate to be here Whoa, bro. How can you be patients upon what you have absolutely no clue of

00:45:44--> 00:45:51

because the knowledge that is being given is completely different to the normal shediac that levy Moosa is familiar with

00:45:52--> 00:45:53

so next week,

00:45:54--> 00:45:55

what is going to be covered?

00:45:57--> 00:46:00

key there is going to kill a young boy.

00:46:02--> 00:46:07

He is going to damage a boat that belongs to poor people.

00:46:09--> 00:46:19

And he is going to assist apparently assist. And Tom town that was completely inhospitable towards them, by rebuilding a wall that was about to collapse.

00:46:20--> 00:46:23

And each incident, you're going to find

00:46:24--> 00:46:30

qualities in a big moves are coming out of that strong heavy moves that we just spoke about. You can see that was

00:46:31--> 00:46:43

fun. Man, Jake, how can you do this? What's wrong with you? That is normal, absolutely normal reaction. But in that we find the wisdom that Allah subhanaw taala had kept

00:46:45--> 00:46:47

tight. So

00:46:48--> 00:46:58

closing comments from my side here for tonight, is we definitely have a crisis, as far as the level of education in our room is concerned,

00:46:59--> 00:47:08

from every level, but I just want to comment on the level above Islamic education for the moment. I alluded to this last week. We just cover some some water bases of this tonight.

00:47:11--> 00:47:14

We predominantly have a

00:47:17--> 00:47:28

an introductory system of learning. And we've become very complex into that system. So our idea of of Islamic education in general,

00:47:29--> 00:47:31

takes place in afternoon madrasa.

00:47:32--> 00:47:42

Often madrasa is generally about four times a week, Mondays and Thursdays through the baton hour, hour and a half, sometimes two hours for some schools. And that's

00:47:44--> 00:47:57

the time that the kids going to learn Yeah, they really speed they died. I can recall like you You spent the whole day at school, now you completely move and you have to go into the madrasa

00:47:58--> 00:48:05

what they learned in the short time there but that digit compared to the eight hours they had during the day is

00:48:07--> 00:48:22

the basics in every subject, rather than basically some subjects for example how to read just from from scratch laters to the point where they can actually pull the data instability. Pacha right,

00:48:23--> 00:48:27

entering into the Pan Am is a big thing in our culture, it gets me to get the bachelor

00:48:29--> 00:48:39

would you call it the quality packets of both? Marshall everything is great. Not many kids actually complete recitation of the Quran with a teacher said you get how to make

00:48:40--> 00:48:42

educating yourself to

00:48:43--> 00:49:13

the basics of the basics of how to make solid sound schools will reach fasting as well. Very, very few schools will fashions that guy because it's an unthinkable Demeter that that then it becomes clickable later on. I don't know of any schools that actually goes through like hydrogen rock. And then they also have the jack doesn't have complete delivery altogether, like financial transactions. Today bank, Justice

00:49:14--> 00:49:20

nikka Pollack, the major chapters of faith that that omitted

00:49:21--> 00:49:36

so we essentially go to school we learn how to do addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, how to learn Kathy added Kathy and Bob maybe after the book five, for the most, and they leave the Islamic education.

00:49:37--> 00:49:40

And that's that's what we've become complacent with.

00:49:41--> 00:49:59

To make matters worse, durability we need to reach the age of high school, migrating to a given same high school experience. They become too busy with other things. They get taken out of madrasa, the cabbage patch and so on. And they focus on school they give this year

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

So again, until one day they want to go on Hutch. Or when they're doing a decaf, trying to manage clauses and editing entailments I think after looking at you tonight, it just happened. Just like nigga,

00:50:15--> 00:50:18

it was completely unintentional. Always think something.

00:50:22--> 00:50:26

So it's a very sad state of affairs.

00:50:29--> 00:51:10

We would never, ever be comfortable with that level of education, for other sciences, basic maths or literary literacy, etc. So we've got some making up to do now, even that much is too much. So many schools have moved over to a Saturday or Sunday learning system, where you go once a week with three hours in the Senate and three hours in the Sunday. Now, whilst you can cover more ground as far as the time you are with those kids is concerned, it's an entire week apart from each other. So you learn this week, by the time they come back next week, they forgot to mention in the previous week, you start over again. So you're building and you're breaking, and you're building and you're

00:51:10--> 00:51:12

breaking throughout.

00:51:13--> 00:51:18

So we really, we really need to change things up a bit.

00:51:19--> 00:51:24

When kids get sick, you know, I'm sending my child off to learn Islam.

00:51:26--> 00:52:07

Predominantly still thinking is heavy. And that's fine. It's really beneficial for a number of reasons. And this cognitive functions that can improve tremendously, and so on. But normally, we don't think beyond that. Because my child is having a huge underground and the deaf piano, they stand in front of sada that's about it. That's why we have five magazine a wall that this goes on the dance floor, etc. Because they just memorize the Book To me, it's not only talking to me, it's me exactly Kabuki Mandarin, or in Zulu language that I don't understand why because I just memorize the Book.

00:52:11--> 00:52:32

So it is my sincere belief that we need, all of us need to understand that is a basic level of Islamic knowledge that we need to aspire to. What is that basic level, I'll repeat it again, and said it before I'll repeat it again, I believe every Muslim should be able to understand the Quran.

00:52:33--> 00:52:47

Just like every Christian would be able to understand the Bible when they read it. This means not reading a translation. This means I may learn the basics of the Arabic language, so that when they are actually cyclical and they can understand the Quran,

00:52:48--> 00:52:51

you get full time institutions that do that in about a year.

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

Some do it in two years, you get both institutions that do it over three years, four years. But we will need it if the child needs it.

00:53:02--> 00:53:07

They after every Muslim needs to go through a solid

00:53:09--> 00:53:09

education.

00:53:11--> 00:53:20

Of all the essential sciences. When I say essential scientists, I'm not talking about high level stuff that an addict needs to know I'm talking about how to practice Islam as if that is

00:53:21--> 00:53:24

not getting more people allowed to make Sunnah.

00:53:25--> 00:53:26

I'm talking about

00:53:28--> 00:53:34

a decent level of knowledge of all the above of fit, and all the beliefs of Muslim.

00:53:37--> 00:53:48

If you have learned up to the animal feeder level, we basically know everything is on the feeder, then that is the kind of level that we're talking about the if you still should know but

00:53:49--> 00:54:18

unfortunately, we sit in a situation that's actually like a reference book for most Muslims. Like the book, you go through it, you really want to figure something out. No, that's the basic guide. It's the basic guide. So the basic level of this basic level of cockiness and, and, and that would be about one to two years of full time, Islamic education. And I will personally recommend that this take place between high school and university,

00:54:19--> 00:54:27

between high school and university because that's the time when they're going to be most in need of the own foundation of guidance, the old foundation of,

00:54:28--> 00:54:30

of, of

00:54:32--> 00:54:41

the old solid foundation, because now they're going to be influenced by so many other isms and ideologies and so on. They need to know where they're coming from and who they are

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

yesterday
