Assuming that he also,
we should be.
Besides the stories last week, we focused primarily on the structure of the stories and the distance the primary listen to the iPhone stories. We also need to know the the broader structure of this neuron. So very simple, straightforward statute. In fact, you should memorize it. So the short the short of Scott's opening and embrace, as it discusses matters of religious country, right, then it goes into the first story.
After the first story, which will really continue introduction to person to the second quarterback, the second address,
then it goes to the third so you so you have the guardians of the owner of the gardens, the the third address,
the Industrial Revolution, and say that
the next story, so you're a little late in the attitude majority, and it concludes with a full bar. So it's important that we familiarize ourselves with this because it will make our understanding of this entire use to rock simple, the objective you should have for yourself. At the end of tonight's lesson, based on last week's lesson in tonight's lesson, is that you should be able to explain to your spouse assuming that she's not you, or your spouse explain to you like, if you both hear
the entire structure of this hoorah. within five minutes, I'll give you enough see now, just to be able to say. So our path has these four main stories, right and Soraka is interspersed with the following code guys, you don't know the details here, at least you know the structure. And you'll find this to be really useful because your knowledge of this will only increase as time goes by, and he can fit everything into that center. And so I can be both the puzzle don't go the puzzle starting by fitting all the individual pieces together not knowing what you're doing, you start off by looking at the bigger picture and then trying to fit the pieces in accordingly you start saying
things together like the ages and so on. So it's important to get the big picture first. Now if you get the themes
some of you have been following these classes, Winston and process for a while. So you would have heard some of the themes that we discussed before we say there are five major themes.
According to the breakup of an Indian scholarship and yoga they allow the either to focus on the fundamentals or the basis of the see. And we've repeated these themes a number of times we see the art of
the future either in the military
so hate on the majority is the oneness of Allah everything to do with the atom
lows right six things that you will say
so he Africa they tend to be a young they learn reminders of the days of Allah anyone can be cool what are the days of Allah mystic about the days of Allah?
What do we need to present the days of?
fact the case it's a clause you can guess in a clause places you don't use the place of work on Facebook
and WhatsApp family chat chance and the opportunity lunches at the Bri today btw case in clauses you can in case anyone
sorry. Tomorrow it's a good case because you'd imagine like a Joomla on a Friday or Saturday is not quite we speaking about the themes of poker and so quite mean special days in that sense any other
kiama was a good case, right? Because if I need to learn how to call her to belong to this day to Allah, so yes in the sense that differently than Allah, but not really speaking about the themes of the plan, or do we speaking about
what he meant it's very similar to Joomla. Now, maybe half the days have already switched
To those days in our history, in which alleged power was manifest among people, right? Allah speaks about this in the vacuum the gala remind him of the days of Allah, those who are holy days in a more broad sense, because miracles will manifest
Before before, not in our time, we're talking about in the time of Rasulullah Sasa in the time of all of the prophets before him. So in other words, during the time of the MBA, there is a MongoDB referring to the time of the Gambia
what are the days of Allah, the time of the Gambia, because those are the times in which offers miracles were manifest. So Allah speaks about that in the Quran as a Mila days of Allah. So, from that you can gather this theme discusses stories, write stories of the prophets, all of the stories of the prophets, from the Maidan all the way to the Mohammed Salah line it was send them in all the stories and incidents which took place in his lifetime.
Those were all the yummy laughs Of course, other days also the days on left two days or less day, but that has a very specific meaning. So that's what we're referring to them.
And that's important because once you know the theme, the next question is, so what do we suppose to gain from that? So just put that to the on the shelf for the moment we go on to the next theme. remind us of
the favors of Allah at that KB and that in in Surah Rahman Allah says fabienne Irani Kumar to get the ban? Which of the failures of the Lord to trophy Will you deny? The famous of Allah? What did the famous of Allah give me some examples? of pathetic famous over
overseas with the discussions and awkward offerings all?
The word itself?
Well, yes, in a sense, then that definitely is part of it. And I'll let us use them. So yes. broader plants. Yes. Now anything specific water?
stars in the moon, very good. more examples.
reading your code and yes.
being bold. So if you were to if you were to now in in a lesson, everything would be overnight. But in a very broad sense. The famous about Long Island developer and can be broadly divided into two. Right? wafi and fusuma fella to go soon. That was within yourselves, right? Your physical self favors that benefit you as a human being individually. And then the three
was an astrological astronomical. Please get confused between the two?
Not the funny one. Yeah, not that astronomical. The famous out there in the universe, natural phenomena. Right? Sun the moon, the stars, what are those things? So it'll look it speaks about those things and look for an that's a theme in and of itself. Focus. And then the last one on the board day off for that we have the is a mad
the life you're after? date is whatever comes often days. Again, because the nice English word that we learn is there's always a previous class, which was that word set along with jawbreaker.
We live it this is cryptology someone's
eschatology II a CH anthology is cryptology. Right this word means the study of this in whatever comes after it so that's that's the theme that's not present here because we are speaking the word maca sutras is Africa. Right?
Why are they not present in Makkah sutras?
For this you need to understand the serum. How long did the prophets of Allah is 70 meaning Makkah?
How long did you remain in Makkah before going to Medina.
30 years. everybody agreed. 13 years. Okay. So 13 years in Makkah
In that time period, they will know detailed laws.
Very, very broad laws. Like don't make sure you pray that but no details about how to pray, how many times to play it safe.
So they will if there was nothing about nose with DBS, then what was the answer? those four things 30 years of instilling within believers to heed the mighty name of the boss why we'll get to in a moment he might even have called for the fame visit Allah Allah bestows upon them and remind them of the ARCA these four themes of the Quran are Eman boosters, turbo boosters, right they are what make you a stronger believer you will become stronger believe it by sitting in effect clause not saying it's not important. I'm just putting things into perspective here.
And it's important that you understand that because generally what happens is somebody feels like they want to come and learn a little bit so the first thing they do is
they look for a clause and based on on on a system of just yours getting on and on generally people who prefer clubs it's actually a bit of a
different approach if you're looking for love
if you're looking for a love the first step isn't going to the lows, right? Because lows or just want to do
it doesn't give you the why you should do it.
You understand the difference? You should first get the inspiration as to why you should do it follow the law and then learn the law so with that I think is getting close like me 3003 but I don't gamble paycheck sector no fasting in Ramadan I think like five times a day sauna 13 years
and only really the lowest calorie and they came in quick succession because they came with the time and believers were yeah you will Edina Hamelin believers, right? or wrong. We just hear you and dance and Allah speaks to them like this in the market to us. Yeah, even as the motherland Suma. Yeah, you will Amina because for 13 years, the man has been both is everybody following, it's really important that you understand this. So the Mk cancela fold with themes that boost the demand, boost the top one and make you a strong believer, whereas the modern and so on are much more for the firming face people.
In that sense. So of the five themes we mentioned, the read Afghan days of Allah famous of all the often, the one that's very apparently absent is the one that loads in the whole sort of caffeine, okay to find loads, you can find anything about solids, aka all of the filters, which is really minimal, but we are going to find strong messages of tawheed, the oneness of all the data, all the all the stories we mentioned, if we see one of the stories is about the days of the past, then the famous of Allah in between, yes, we need to find all the data highlighting favors of ease, and in the year after very strong as well.
This year, understanding those themes
as as as given so much to my own personal understanding of the poor and back off to exploring our core. And
once I learned these themes, so much more made sense. And it's a bit of an advanced study, but once you are able to pinpoint which themes a verse fits into, you understand how to apply that person to your life. Right? So if you know that, okay, these verses deal with the theme of the stories of Allah or Saudi the days of Allah. So these are stories. If you don't know what to do with this duties, they could just be stories. But if you understand these reminders that they fit on law, what does it mean to me? Then it will click because you have to learn that when Elon Musk speaks about those days, he actually wants you to learn a lesson from the
fact that we do yeah, vanilla soft. We want you to take note of people who can see it's like watching a play or studying a play for that matter. In high school, we would study Shakespeare plays right? And if you have to draw things that are not necessarily spoken,
but lessons that you will have to observe when a reading between the lines so literally just on the back. So when you identify with the characters and you start, you start saying okay, this character is like this and this characters like that, and this this subplot and so on and so forth. That's what Allah wants us to do.
You're just supposed to be once upon a time there was Musa Musa meet me through this journey and they live happily ever after. That's not how the plan works.
is a lesson that needs to be learned. And was the lesson for.
For me, for us, and that's the amazing part of it. If you read it like that,
it will change your perspective completely because you no longer reading it like it's the one thing that matters to people 1400 years ago was it matters to you know, some pious people in a, in a Masjid making Vicar some way? none of it matters to me today. Now, who am I in the story? How am I like most of our mind? Like? How am I like figure out how am I like called whom? Who can act basically like? Do I have the qualities of Moosa? Am I supposed to get rid of some qualities to be more like looser? Am I supposed to get rid of some qualities that are not likely around me to do introspection. So that's the major purpose of the theme.
Fi the days of alleged
that one day, that's really important,
because so I practice folded stories. So we're going to be doing exactly that. Now, of course, last week, we got a sneak preview into the major lessons of each story. Now we can move on when it comes into feed. Of course, the subject matter of the field is what we learned in the way that aqeedah clauses are meant to be loving mama daddy can do to be emotionally or when you're going to have trouble by providing or shepherding. That's the broader subject matter of the week, how much of the poor and
how much of the poor and this each theme take up.
though he'd much more than a fifth one, like one third,
about a third of the Quran is expounding on the fact that if only one day, you don't believe me, read the Quran from cover to cover and see how many verses go back to that one field. It's phenomenal. Because it's so funny to me.
Which is why what I mentioned last week about the youth actually losing the man and leaving the folder, Milan is so alarming
it's the last thing on earth that you'd expect to happen to Muslims.
It's not too difficult to imagine a Muslim abandoning some of the logos.
Right? To the extent that is not difficult to imagine a Muslim abandoning Salah abandoning Sokka consuming Riba
they have some things that are still very taboo, in our minds equal in the law, Justice have always other things. But certain things remain like oh, no, you don't do that. Right. So like, for example,
having a boyfriend or girlfriend, that's fine for most most Muslims, right?
I mean, even to the extent that like some level of zenas was okay, for meetings, by falling pregnant, the staff level, the whole level upward that level, you know, or like,
thinking common sense,
to some stages is acceptable to most of us
are eating frenzy.
Hola, Lakota, Illa Villa, you know, so we have this thing in our mind in some rows are more important than others. At the end of the day,
the low of the heat is the ultimate in the immediacy of shift is the ultimate anti Milan, if you shall can be while film as soon as it can be made.
As a new scene anywhere in the world. You know, it will tell you she is unforgivable, or they will forgive you that. Of course, this is part of an understanding that let's go with that. But the point is, we all know that. So for someone to actually leave the fold of Islam that is serious. Now,
from my own personal experience, when it happens to someone who begins shaky, the journey shaky and then they fall off. It's not as shocking, but we need someone who comes from, you know, so to speak bones and there's no such thing as bonus in everyone's moments. But there there is there's a Muslim, they come from Islamic values and principles, they go to madrasa, etc, etc, and then leave the folder.
That is shocking. And yet, that's reality. So though he takes about one third of the quarter, and that's important these days are all things about the year after, and I can fold up the dates. So those are the themes of the end. Now next week when I asked namely the themes of poker
And then at least 50% of you will realize that by the age of Soraka, as you can imagine, is an early monkey surah. So early monkey surah is nothing but a nice word.
These differences of opinion as to when exactly it was revealed.
what we do know is why it was revealed the circumstances that are which was revealed.
Tonight, listen, this part of the lesson is also important that everybody to remember this.
The province of Allah, Allah, Saddam's derawan
was now open.
Open in one sense, he was no longer hiding away. He was no longer only preaching to his family and to try to open that up. He was out in the open armory, baseless Nam, Hamza Padilla on a deal on the old law mostly openly. So they were out in the open cording to Islam.
And of course, the Polish, they didn't like this. This also meant that there was lots of struggle, just leading to physical struggle. Now, when people actually being persecuted and tortured, here will be love for the line. This is the time with a widow janemba, the the three year ban of the believers, this is in that close to that time period, the operation started looking for ammunition. They started going around asking the People of the Book, specifically the Jewish rabbis that they could make contact with EV Medina, what else we
you know, give us some questions that we could ask to see who is really a prophet. Give us some questions, we could ask Mohamed Salah, they will say that, of course, but the CBC Radio prophet.
And they, the Jews can have a few questions. They say, ask them about a group of young men who fled their life from tribulation.
Ask them about the men who moved around the world and you know, conquer anything. And then ask them about this. So
now for a second before we continue with the story, don't be like for
the Quraysh? Did they actually have a Nia? Okay, if he answers correctly will become Muslim? And if you answer incorrectly, and then we will have ammunition against
either having an agent or
not at all. They will tell you what he was going to answer. They didn't expect him to answer correctly, they expected him to not be able to answer. And that's true.
But they didn't prepare themselves for a correct answer. And when he gave me the correct answers, eventually, they didn't embrace the snap, they didn't succumb to any of these demands.
Don't be like those people are going to learn knowledge, only to argue with others to prove them wrong.
Don't look for
a recording data.
When people go into Google, and they're going to find arguments, and again, find the plates, you know, just to because this is one guy is always talking Islamic stuff, you know, and they always try to prove themselves that I don't be that that's very dangerous. Allah warns against that in local
civil places overseas, turn away from them flee from them. It's just a very, very, very bad into that
learning, supposed to be a good thing, but it can become a very evil thing. When is that return on me on Sunday for a webinar for the sake of elevating yourself above others for the sake of arguing with those who know for the sake of humiliating as never do that? We'd rather stay aliens, because you safer that way. Because you'll be an even bigger idiot. If you actually learn in case you're on it for the wrong reasons. Obviously, this is a very common thing that people actually just find facts and details. Simply used to argue now we will. So they ask the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam he's Christian.
Yes, I know that can be called name comes in Soraka. They asked you about the Quran. In Surah Surah. The other parts of this incident is mentioned yes alluded to me a group that asked you about the soul photo
The beautiful part of this story is how it took place. They come to the professor, tell me about this. So the Prophet Sal says what?
You can remember this story. He says, then I'm going to tell you the answer.
Why did he say
tomorrow? I'm going to tell you the answer tomorrow.
Whoa, stop. Because this story is actually teaching us the lesson the lesson is instead of life right? Now reveal the lesson now we this is an important lesson recorded for you to kind of just delay the preference or setup for God to say insha Allah
and install aka like Allah sees
right in what are the cool and militia in effect in that he can further in?
Do not say about anything. I'm going to do that tomorrow, or in the future for that matter. Except for mobiles. As always an issue say insha Allah.
So one component.
What happened was the prophet SAW Sam said that. Now normally, God would bring responses immediately. The next day game, no response in a second, no response the next day. Some scholars said his base episode is a week's episode this month.
No response came.
this isn't to harbor asking him a question Who's asking you the question? The courage and this isn't pradesh occupation, out of the sincerity of the heart, what are they trying to show?
It actually is not a prophet. But even in those difficult times, you know, this precarious situation of us. Muhammad, Allah still teaches in this lesson, well, really teaches us this lesson. And don't think it just because it looks like I'm supposed to help you that I'm just kicked out, no matter what you do. Think about that for a second.
How many things in our own times in our own lives when it's like, you know,
with his Palestine with his Muslim suffering around the world is so much that's happening. And you might think, why doesn't religious help the situation, who always going to be a one God needs to do or how he needs to intervene. But this incident actually teaches us about how our own actions will determine God's intervention.
The profits lesson did not sell in sha Allah. And therefore, he was delayed. And it eventually came in they came with the lesson also, right that the initial draft. So of course, from that, we learned that we should never say I'm going to do anything in the future. And as we said, in childhood
seems like a pretty straightforward lesson, but we can get it confused. We use it incorrectly many times. It's not supposed to be used at the end of a door app.
That's specifically prohibited in the province of SMC you shouldn't say insha Allah after a door I, I can't say if somebody can eat just for my cup with some water. would you do it? If you want to, only if you want to do it, but only if you want to do it, but only if you want to. It's not really a command. It's not really a request. And basically just do it. Don't do it. Again. Right? If you want to, here's Oh, Allah, please grant me Jana. Only if you want to.
That's what we say we say follow monogamy, Jenna insha. Allah says not supposed to be used in the individual. It's supposed to be used when you say I'm, I am going to do something. And I am going to finish this talk tomorrow. I'm going to
look into shopping next week. So I'm going to buy that car next month, I'm going on hikes in two years time, I'm going to take my family on holiday in six months, anything. We it's up to me up to the individual that's building on the future. It's not just what I mean, if Allah wills that so that's the first lesson that you have to learn. It's not when we are making a direct call to this all law granting gentlemen, you know, metal Look around you success in your life.
I mean, nothing short of understanding defense. I mean, I mean is the appropriate response because it says over exit, right, all exit alarm messaging, whereas insha Allah, Allah was different.
if we looking at
the importance of it, it's taking its subsidiary install. I'm not going to do that
at the moment,
Demonstrate mobility, I'm going to do that, if Allah allows me to do that. So another sense of of saying
one thing that is definitely not. And unfortunately, this is especially true in the Arab world, it's definitely not like a and no bloody intention of doing it at all. But if by some miracle, Allah pulls me out of my laziness and makes me go there, you know, in that case, inshallah, that's not how it's supposed to be used. So you are someone, you know, would you take me to the airport tomorrow, inshallah?
If it comes from some additives, he's like, I have no intention of taking you to the input at all. That's not that was good news. for you. So you're saying, inshallah, you're saying yes. If Allah was like, Yes, I will do that. And this stops me from doing that. Three is divine power. And that's a fact. So remember that distinction. The last point that I wish to mention about inshallah, because it's going to be repeated in the sutra, anyways,
is studio manager, which I mentioned at the end of Sankara,
the coffee mug, right, we'll get to the details of that. But
cystic fit, explained that they are borrowing out of the places we'll coordinate period them digging up everyday, everyday.
And at the end of each day, 50 is the surface of the earth, and they actually see a glimmer of light, or some AI or something that goes through, there is a model we get to finish. And then they wake up the next day, they find that they have to start over again. So the discovering nature theory,
as the first way to signal for us, they didn't know when they don't know what to say in Sharla. And
based on on the Quranic description of them, they seem almost like not again, the human, obviously from the human species, but they not also like a normal human, like a different type of human, less intelligent, mobile panic, sandwich type of thing. So I don't think they have the understanding, you know, to kind of just remember to do something, some of like an animal type thing.
So we should definitely take that lesson, if it is given to the profitsystem, it should be given to us. So we let the Vedic technical things in, I never say, I'm going to do this, I'm going to do that I will, I won't
always add to your intentions in Sha foldables. And don't use it into acts just listen to yourself speak, watch other people speak better judge other people, it's just for you to take Listen, if people make their eye when it's on the radio or with it with each other, especially in communication. Right? You say, you know, I'll take you to all the zero places. And and, and, and at the end of that, they get a second shot. All right, but it's technically a very, like a
vaca. kikusui. Like saying, Okay, well, we're gonna do all of this. Only if he wants to do it. If he wants to, we can do that and really want to do this. Heidi will tell us not to, to say that. You said I mean, at the end of the guy, does anybody else say? Do we have a mother daughter need insha? Allah? I mean, anyone know? Okay, if you don't say that the end of the most important notice at the end of class.
Another thing that I've noticed, since we're on the topic of meeting inshallah, I mean,
that's all of a sudden, become not powerful enough.
So anybody noticed that?
Has anybody noticed that amin is all of a sudden Latina.
Now, let's actually come with another one.
I mean, isn't enough, usually, I mean,
it's like an emphasis that movie. It's just, it's nothing wrong with it. don't have anything. It's just weird. Because knowing and knowing the sun and knowing that Islamic sacred things do we find? I mean, not being enough. I mean, it's all like saved. And now it's no all likes it. likes it again. So it's just funny. It's very funny if you don't know atomico The second thing is I'm sure it's like normal because everybody uses but if you if you have studied a bit, it's really funny. And you see this it's like a
it's become normal language. Anyways.
So that's the reasons for emulation revision reclaim the Polish questions from the
from the rabbi's.
What are these questions? Young men fleeing from? tribulation, the man who moved around the wall about local name and about the, the role
of these questions Allah Subhana Allah de to answer with revelation, how long did it take? Some say up to six months after that Allah knows?
One answer, Allah didn't actually give. Which one?
The last one about the rule, right? Yes, I do like any rule kulu mean Hammurabi. They ask you about the robot, the soul say the soul is from the commands of my Lord from the matters of my own. And he says, Allah commands you to say that man knows about it, except the few meaning we have little knowledge about through something that only Allah knows. The others he gave detailed knowledge about, which is odd, because these were not stories in them into the atoms. Now the text itself is proof that it wasn't known to the atoms. Because if the Qureshi had to go to the rabbi's to find out which questions to ask the prophets of serum, then it's proof that the Quraysh themselves, were
unfamiliar with these stories. Does that make sense? And if the operations look forever, is to get the information to give to the profitsystem bearing in mind that the operation themselves could read and write and the profits or some could not read and write,
then that shows you Historically, the strength of the Prophet Ellison was telling them about things of, of Jewish scripture.
Because if anyone had access to it, they the operation should have had, should have had access to it. The profitsystem didn't have access to the Jewish rabbis, nor did he have access to the Scriptures at that time. Yet, after they came with the questions he gave them, not only the data, but yes, in addition to what I mentioned last week, about stories being different. The Prophet Alessandra could give details that this previous scriptures would not have.
And of course, differences, very, very broad differences, but details and Other Stories would not have, and in Allah Subhana, Allah grabzit in the faces for lack of a better expression, because at the end of the story, Allah reminds him, he was not with him at this place, how would he know this knowledge? So that's the beauty of these stories other than the fact that they are really serious lessons that we can learn from. So what time is
55? Okay, so we have just a few more minutes before we get into q&a, is do the first couple of verses, which is the first one that I see in this course, we will focus more on the stories than on the the hood mess in between. So it's tried to just go through the first code, bench all that data and see how does this correlate to that job, because the preferences are specifically saved the first thing versus memorize that prediction from that job. So let's see what we can find in here. first verse. Honorable, administrate on the regime. smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu lillahi. Lani. All praise is due to Allah who Alhamdulillah all plays Lila, he is for Allah. The word Allah handle
is interesting, because if you learn any Arabic you would you would start off by learning that this Alia
normally means the kita bone book alkie taboo the book in Adham do it doesn't mean the this is a different type of lamb. This is actually called something of lamb is still a rock, which roughly translated to be the drowning, all encompassing law. It's not to say third place, but absolutely anything that that is considered Bayes is included here. Or Blaise Lee is for online learning. And Larry the one who ends on either either DVD sent down upon avid, slave, E, rb D slave, and kita. Back since the book the book referring to the corner while I'm here john O'Donoghue and did not make it.
Any crookedness. There's no crookedness in this book. It's absolutely straight, absolutely solid.
Fundamental bit about this first verse.
Firstly, your homework, you can write this down, find out how many soldiers in the Koran begin with the woods at 100 ala, you know, of course one more. Right? Find out how many other Surahs and reach are they? How many servers in the Quran begin with the word Alhamdulillah. And which swap are they? So how does this verse deal with that job?
Remember, that child is ultimate fitness,
the ultimate fitness. The profits is inborn. That all previous prophets warned about him
He's the ultimate fitness. Now.
When did we learn about this?
The reason why they're so shocking to us because in my learning, it came at the end of the study of Akita.
At the end of the web Tysabri, kawakita, and all of the signs of gamma, and Vinu, learned about danger, and the new thoughts.
After all, we've already seen in this world, and opposite, all odd explain to us about and the origin, manage and all of the other calamities of gamma. That channel is the greatest treatment. When you say fitna, we mean test for the faith of people of faith that as ever, will ever be seen.
It's scary, because that means that very few will actually stand a chance of holding the faith firm in the face of danger.
As I said before, yes, there are theories about, you know, that job isn't like a person, but like the system, and all of those things. I don't quite buy into those theories and the main theories, because the the text within the text are too descriptive, right? We'll get into the description of that job, but it's most certainly describing a man describing a minute. And the type of abilities that, like he's described with our abilities that we mentioned and alluding to last week, type of powers it in became, and
it's really difficult to imagine you're standing against such such abilities with your faith.
And he doesn't just come like, okay, everything is good. And then he comes, like, I seriously doubt that John's coming tomorrow, even next year. Why?
Because things are not bad enough, yet.
I know things are bad. Believe me, I know things are bad. But be honest. Can you imagine the beating was
of course. And again, you get a lot worse. And it's really, and it's worse, that the Savior camps, quote, unquote, save the false messiah, because he's coming as MSI realistically to be the fosmon side. And when things are so bad, and you're someone who can make the reigns folding, and cure cancer and stuff, HIV, you know, like, so she has documented and bouquets

But those type of ages I imagine you can come polio is like a suddenly a big concern for many people around the world. Something like AIDS, tuberculosis, HIV, sorry, cancer, those type of things.

And he's actually with it out like what about such an eligibility test? So what made sense here is that the first verse highlights your salvation.
No matter how bad it might seem, always remember and hamdulillah
no matter how terrible things are, always remember and hamdulillah no matter how misguided you may feel, no matter how much darkness you may feel, no matter how much pain you may be going through, no matter how much suffering you may be getting. No matter how good paced you might be, and hanging in there.

As it is in the wall, can take one small example. Just do a case study of how the world has changed its response, sometimes in a good way, most of them in a bad way to homosexuality over the past 50 years alone, you will be shocked. She'll be shocked. We didn't think about it was we innovative? Right, we don't really see the change. But just doing the 30 years ago to still demo now. In his in his speech against his demo. I don't want to get into the politics they have because they used to do some really evil things to homosexual people, which nobody nothing Muslims, I think reasonable justify. But that's not the point. The point is the act of homosexuality that we're speaking about,
according to all monotheistic religions is intrinsically bad, the act, not the disposition, the act. And today, it's an absolute No, you won't find a movie or CDs, or you barely find a movie or CDs or book that doesn't have some sort of a
romantic discussion about homosexuality or promote it in a normal way. You know, I mean, you guys know, I don't need to prove that to you. But anytime we face file and found speed, then to the court and you'll never go wrong. When things are at its worst, and
that's the main reason that you wish to give.
Okay, if you don't if that I don't want to rush, so I don't want to go through that. But the first opening a while seeming almost just like a casual introduction, that has nothing to do with the stories that follow, I believe to be a fundamentally important verse, because it's like, in the midst of the darkness. I mean, if that junk comes in emotionally, every Muslim who's ever heard that jealous or capitalist in West has memorized?
Who's not going to do who's not even a Muslim ally,
is going to be decided, and how do they deny and against Allah?
One thing is just the most of them. It's just another magic thing that comes over here.
Or is it something that is supposed to draw lessons from I believe the latter, yes, some magic, but definitely the latter. Because a lot of us
to know, even in those times of darkness, that we still have life. So right now, in our own country, in our own lives, we find so much sickness, it is the mean that literally and figuratively, then
we need the elected operand. There's no there's no alternative.
Well, I don't think you can, you can find everything in the world. You try working out more, you can try new hobbies, you can try traveling, you can try buying new expensive cars and clothes, and you can try as much materialism as you possibly can. You're not going to find fulfilment, you're not going to find a light in the darkness, then you find your way back to the Quran. When you find your way back to the poor, and you find everything. No one can prove that to you. You have to taste it for yourself, you have to experience and experience it for yourself
to have to go through the net and continue next week. inshallah, another piece of homework assignment, if you want to do please, is to take five minutes, or one minute, even if you don't have five minutes, take one minute. And tonight, when you get home, or after you perform or Asia whenever you can just be quiet for a few minutes. Why should you decide, and hamdulillah just hanging in there for a minute, don't count how many times you're doing it. It doesn't matter if you can roll the time yourself. But just sit down. Think of all the famous always behind on the data on you. And just sit quietly and whether you use your time with you to sit silently in your cell from the lab.
And as you saying it reflected all the failures of unluck failures that we've overlooked failures that you've forgotten about failures that we don't thank him enough for just continuously think all this behind us and just be just the opposite of how you feel after you do that in Charlotte Island. Okay, are there any questions?
Any questions, we have just five minutes on sushi.
For purposes of

Okay, so we when we say
when we say
when when I use the word arguments that context is different from the academic usage.
When you're arguing, the sake of learning,
that's, that's different. This is the scholarly thing. debate the prophecies of the word scholars, you should do this all the time. ramazani who is renowned for this among shaffir, even when they would deliberately 18th argument, but it's not for the sake of arguing it's for the sake of learning. So to pull the as many different angles out as possible to reach a conclusion. But they used to they used to warn about this, they say, quite a bit difficulty Mozarteum Shafi, but you say that,
if you win a theme to the standard argument, I made a list of 100 things out of the truth.
Regardless of whether it's on my column on the tower, my opponent, I shouldn't be worried, if I'm only interested in the truth when it comes out of my own into something to that effect. But that was the spirit in which they did demo arguments. I'm speaking about these.
Sam working at this company, and the guy next to me, you know, he's got the beard always make slides. And he always brings up the topics and I never have anything to really tell him, you know, and I just feel like telling you my finger tubes, I was sitting across the Mowbray.
A sweater Friday when I get to work. Did you know Did you know? That? That sort of calf was actually revealed because the professor didn't say in Sharla. Did you know that? That's actually so you actually learning to embrace that person or two different things to kind of get back to that person but not for the sake of learning for the sake of just showing yourself to be bigger? In that sense. It's wrong. Right.
Any other questions? Yes. Good.
I don't recall you saying exactly those words.
Okay, so going to contextualize it. Firstly, those are four themes of the markets were the full picture, Madeleine Swann back at school five, the one that is missing.
Okay, so those are five broad themes of the Quran. According to one scholar tshabalala de NaVi. I particularly like that breakup of the themes, because I find it to be very comprehensive, okay. And each one of those five has to be dealt with, with individual rules differently. So when it comes to the divine stories, or stories of the days of a law,
interesting. It's about what you can observe different lessons and things like that. But the rules change when it comes to speaking about Allah, the heat they talked about. So what do you think and what do you see in my opinion, in your opinion phase is much more restrictive because you're speaking about the nature of God. When it comes to governments well, law, they you don't just think debited to the length of history you interpreted in light of this entire paper underneath is zero. But those are the five themes and the reason why I'm emphasizing them is because by learning the different themes, you learn how to interact with them. When it comes to the Sierra, the Sierra, in
and of itself, is what in my in my humble opinion,
in that we have is fundamental. It's one of the base backdrops if not the biggest factor with which to understand more.
Right? If you if you've read through the Quran, if you've read matches the Quran, if you've heard of serum, the Quran, etc, all good and well, your world will become 10 times larger, they open up the seed of the promises and when you read it from cover to cover, because it provides you with that context that the Quran was revealed in
Yes, so how easily there is
a facility being learned
200 years? Of course not.
That long duration
doesn't make them with the discipline of source or the discipline. Official? Well, it depends on on PC, when you say when you use your on deck life, it has very restrictive meaning, because now you've been seen on literature
that it's different from the word zero, it was only this broad means because the word zero is not only zero, the feature zero is taken from the core and itself. It's taken from the, from the profits Arsenal, it's taken from history. And then there became a very specific genre called Syrah literature, which as you say, only really originated like in that period.
Within that source, just like as Heidi, we don't unrestrictedly accept everything that comes in a, you have to look at it with the degree of historical rigor, and we have an entire system fortunately Alhamdulillah we have an entire system within our Deen COVID system. So we can actually scrutinize every bit of evidence and whether it took place or not. Unfortunately, people are really
they are very,
so laksa days ago, about when it comes to history of Islam. So they'll accept easily that accept things much more than the beautiful law.
And therefore lots of things will creep in that I don't believe actually took place or at least is no evidence with anything, as many things as we grew up, believing to be the truth should be some examples. The profitsystem coming into Medina what the people said
is no historical evidence for that. What was covering him in the game of thrones when he was hiding away.
The way the birth nice is no evidence for that we need was belted a thought if it was to be in the garden returns already made such a powerful Dora is no center for that. So we are able to say which events in the ciroc we have evidence for because it comes with Ethernet. And we can we can we can actually check and verify that chain of narration as opposed to which are just stories that are just they but we can't really say whether to pray for them.
Only scholars were able to really do that. For books that are verified within the city. You're not going to find that in your off the shelf English
ciroc. Right. But scholars do that the one I'd advise you to read. We have scholar is actually a paper that is by Dr. Muhammad Ali salami. It's a three volume work in which he relies only on the most authentic sources. And I quite like to look at traditionally in Arabic as being translated into English. It's a voluminous book but with volatility
