So now when it comes to our cattle, welcome to our class of al Qaeda. Then inshallah we'll discuss the issue of a man. We started with the book of a man. And we started with the hadith of gibreel Ali Salam because it is the essence of that chapter. Now in Hadith gibreel Ali Salaam which is the first Hadith in Sahih, Muslim, and I asked you last time to read it. Did you go back and read the Hadith?
Yes or no?
Okay, you read it all, because it's also online. So hi muslim.com it's the first Hadith there. In this hadith gibreel li Salaam came to the messenger of science alum in a form of a man. And he asked him about Islam. He asked him about the man, he asked him about Islam. And every time the profit science alum answers UBI, Sam says, so that you have told the truth. And the companions did not know who was it until he left. And then the prophet SAW Selim told them it was jabril because it was strange for them to see someone who they don't know. And it doesn't seem that he was traveling. So who was it, he came and he sat exactly, in front of the messenger sign Salaam, he put his hands on
his thighs. So that was strange for them. So the Prophet told them, it was jabril and he came to teach you your religion. So this hadith is essential because it talks about all aspects of our religion. Now, if you read the Hadith, you will notice that the prophet SAW Selim mentioned five things about Islam. These are the pillars of Islam. She had the theme, the testimony, Salah, Zakah, fasting and Hajj, then we have the pillars of a man. So let's take a look at the pillars of a man.
The Prophet science alum, told him,
you affirm your faith in Allah, which means to believe in Allah and His angels. So we have belief in Allah, angels, in his books, in his prophets, in the Day of Judgment, and you affirm your faith in the Divine Decree. So how many pillars of a man
we have five pillars of Islam, and we have six pillars of a man. Then we have a son,
son doing the good deeds.
How do you do son?
By worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala as if you are seeing him, even if you don't see him, he sees you.
So, what do you learn from this hadith?
Why we are discussing it here and the book of Eman
in this Hadith, the prophet SAW Selim and gibreel ally Salaam they divided the religion to how many divisions
three divisions, we have Islam,
a man and their son.
Islam is clear, we discuss it. We started with it with the first pillar, which is the Shahada team because you cannot become a Muslim without without saying the Shahada team. Then the other pillars Salah Sam's aka these things, we discussed them in, in the fifth. Now we're moving to the Imam we're discussing the book of a man
so what's the difference?
between Islam and a man
according to your understanding from Hadith gibril ally Sam, what's the difference between Islam and a man?
Islam things you do
the man things you do you believe in and you do in the heart
visible things and actions unbelief, whatever you say you need that evidence.
So what's the evidence? Do you agree with him or not?
Shahada things you say. And the Salah is an action.
is also an action.
Things that people will see
is also an action.
You can really show it to anyone. Hey, man, you cannot show it to anybody.
Yeah, let me ask you this. Now, the Shahada thing
It doesn't include belief also.
Where it is considered is it considered from the Islam or from the man?
to become a Muslim, you have to say a Shahada thing.
So here again, the issue is little bit confusing how to understand this issue very well.
You need to understand the evidences, you need to go back to all the evidences and the essential one of them is this Hadith, this jabril Ali Salam.
scholars differ about the meaning of Islam and the man.
Some of them said, they are both the same.
They are both the same Islam and the man the same. Some of them said they are different.
Could you have someone who's Muslim but he is not
hypocrite, but the hypocrite and reality is a Muslim or not.
The sight of Allah subhanaw taala
he's not a Muslim. What about someone who said the Shahada 10 sincerely, eyeshadow, leather lotion, masala but he he rarely prays he doesn't pay this occur. he commits sins.
Is he a good believer?
Is he a Muslim?
So are they two separate things? Are they are the same?
One is deeper than the other. What about someone who's atheist?
What about him? Is he a Muslim?
No. Does he have a man?
So it's the same Islam and the man
What do you think?
What which aspect?
Okay, I will clarify this. Now. Let's stick to the man itself, pillars of a man.
The messenger sallallahu Sallam
told zebra Salam that to believe in Allah, the day of judgment to believe in the
Divine Decree to believe in the angels. But we have it in the Quran. Also. Where do you have to believe in
the pillars of a man because someone would come and say
I only accept what's in the Quran.
And tell me what in the Quran it says I have to believe
in the prophets
I believe in Mohammed Salah Salem. But what about the previous prophets? Yes.
The last day a very good I'm another solo with moundsville era MRP one mono kulu Amana belay. vermelha equity are going to be slowly
so it included four pillars here.
And sorta Nisa. Yeah, you're letting me know all you who believe. Now remember, they are already What?
believers that's why they are called believers. What does it say? believe in Allah, everything will lay for our soul. He will keep tabula rasa he will kitabi levy and xelement kabhi.
Okay, now remember, this is a command to believe.
But that's not actually the point of the evidence. Here comes the point of the evidence
on the neck for belie who, whoever denies Allah, His angels, his books, his messengers, and the day of judgment
has gone far, far astray.
So actually, it's in the denial. Once you know that whoever denied any one of them, then he's a disbeliever. Then you know that you have to believe in them. These are the pillars of Eman This is very good.
In Surah Nisa, it talks about the pillars of a man I have sorted the Baccarat and there are many is now according to this ayah This is the question I have for you are the Jews and Christians believers
they don't believe in the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So here's the question now.
Can you believe in like four pillars
of Eman to be considered a believer or you have to believe in all of them.
I believe in the Prophet size lm
but I don't believe in the other
profits or I don't believe in the angels because I did not see them. I believe in the Judgment Day, because it makes sense that you have to be held accountable for your needs. But I don't believe in the angels. I did not see them.
What do you think if someone said I, I am a Muslim, but I don't play soccer?
He's not What?
He's not a Muslim. Boy.
Yeah, they said it's not mandatory.
They said it's not mandatory. So they deny the obligation of this occur. He did not deny it, but he did not do it. No one said he is not a Muslim. No one ever said he is not a Muslim.
As long as he believes it's mandatory. That's why it is the job of the Muslim ruler, he comes and he takes this account forcefully from them.
But if they deny basic I agree with you,
or what cannot allow for them.
Someone he says fasting is obligatory, but I cannot fast I need to eat.
Is he a Muslim or not? I'm asking him. He's a Muslim, right?
Why don't we apply the same thing on a man?
I believe in the Day of Judgment, I believe in Allah. I believe in the messengers, but I don't believe in the angels.
Where is the order?
So we have to believe in all of them.
Do you agree on
Yes or no? You have to believe in all of them. Okay, now we come to the issue. Remember this because I will come again to it, that they are all they have to be. You have to believe in all of them. What's the definition of a man? What's the man? Now we're discussing a man the book of a man what's the man?
What's the definition of a man?
Do you know?
A man is the six pillars. When you say a man is the six pillars. That means anything outside the six pillars is not the man. Is that correct?
Do you Is that what you mean?
What's the man? If you say the six pillars, that means if someone removed the harm from the way it's not the man
what's the finishing of a man?
No one knows you.
What's the vision of a man?
So panela Yes.
worshipping Allah as if you see him. That means if you don't worship Allah has if you see him, you're not a believer.
What's a man?
Come on. Yes.
Okay. So you say a man is a term consists of 70
levels. The highest of them is
the halal Allah, Allah Allah and the lowest.
Okay, what if someone did all these things? 70 he said Laila Allah Allah and he removed the harm and all these things but
he was doing this because he was showing off is a believer.
He is a believer.
Minus shark if you say like lala land you don't believe in it.
That's why I'm asking about the definition of a man. Yes, Shahada.
complete faith in Allah. What do you mean by that complete faith in Allah, I have faith in Allah. But when you asked me to do something, I don't want to do it. I still have complete faith. That's what people say.
Aren't you a Muslim? Yes, I am a Muslim. Why don't you do it? I don't have to.
People ask you all the time. What's the man How? How do you judge people if this is a believer or not?
these are some characteristics of the believers.
When they listen to the Ayat of Allah, the Eman is increased.
But mentioning some tourist characteristics does not mean this is everything.
How much love and compassion do you have in your heart? If I have lots of love, but I don't do anything?
Yeah, I love I love Islam.
You love I believe, but I don't do.
You said to have love and compassion you do not say to do.
I want from you. This is the homework, the new homework.
Define the man linguistically and islamically in the religious term.
What's the definition of a man? Again, this is the the essence of this class. If you don't know the definition
it's due Sunday 9am. inshallah,
Eman mentioned the definition of Eman linguistically and
in the religious term.
If we found one correct answer,
that would have
saved lots of time.
Because basically, we have three questions. Only a few are able to answer them. What's the difference between Islam and the man? What's the definition of a man? Does a man increase or decrease?
then we're done with it with with this class.
Now we're moving to the second issue. Does a man increase or decrease?
This is based on your understanding of the man. Yes, it does. Did you say it does?
What's the evidence?
How do you know if you don't have any evidence?
Sure, not sure.
What do you think? Does the man increase or decrease or not?
people that were in the habit of sort of? Yeah.
Their email. Just like the lightning, it would like some thought and some time and increases and decreases. Okay.
Yeah, but remember, it's talking about
the AI it's talking about?
hypocrites. Are they believers? meaning
no in it?
Yes, yes, we agree. I'm not saying a man comes and goes I'm saying does a man increase or decrease? That's exactly what the deviant sects say. They say a man does not increase or decrease it's one thing if it came,
it comes fully fits left. What is this?
What is this
should come tomorrow.
And you see it?
Is it changed?
It's the same right. could you say that?
I had more faith that this is remote.
You saw it the first time and you knew it right.
What is this color?
Black. If you see time after time after time, would that change your your belief?
So once you say Laila Illallah Muhammad Rasul Allah then you become a believer.
You become a Muslim,
adultery or has been
Very good. That's very good. He lost the man. So at that time, he is not a believer.
And then he has to renew his email. Because He did not say it decreases. He said it's lost. This is an evidence against you. I'm asking about something decreases and increases.
Here's what she hears.
Is it possible? Here's the question. Look at it. Is it possible that someone saw a color?
And he knew it's blue? Now he knows it. If he sees it again, would he say that? I had increased believing that it is blue. It's the same he sold. So the same thing they say about a man, a man is one thing.
It does not
increase or decrease. Now again, we have an evidence from this. So now the messenger sallallahu wasallam. The prophet SAW Selim said Whoever said La Ilaha Illa, Allah entered paradise,
paradise for the believers or for the disbelievers.
For the believers,
how you will enter Paradise
by saying Laila heilala
so no matter how evil deeds you do, you're still a believer. So your your Eman is the same.
How can you refute this? Again, now I mentioned to you
common sense and evidence from the Sunnah of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So saying, Laila Allah, Allah is sufficient. Yes. Do you have something?
Yes, there are there are conditions on Lyla heilala. Now I'm coming back to the point I asked you to remember, I asked you is it sufficient to believe in five of the six pillars or you have to believe in all of them?
You have to believe in all of them. That means the man is one thing. If it comes, that's it. It doesn't increase.
You don't say I I believe this is half blue. Or I have half belief it's blue. So the same thing. Eman does not increase or decrease?
Or they think
so all the deviant sex will be happy with you because you agree with them.
That the man is one thing
it does not increase or decrease? Is it possible that someone has a man belief and this belief is Sham?
Is it possible that someone has this belief and belief at the same time
So he's he's not embarrassed in paradise nor his in Hellfire
the leader delivers for the hearts of people that Peters in between his fingers, we're not the same all the time. At times when calamities come upon us, sometimes we're
Some of us come close to loss.
And the same thing happens. We're not the same. If we were
we would have been injured.
But we're not. So yes, I do believe in
We do believe
in some aspects. You believe and this belief?
Yeah, that's the question in Allah subhanaw taala. Can you have a man and Cofer at the same time?
Yeah, that means the man is one thing, whether you have it or you don't have it.
That's what they are saying. Yes. Do we have something from the students online?
Who said that Mmm. Shafi. What is the evidence we are commanded to follow Allah and the messenger Salah, not the sayings of people, I just quoted Hadith
which implies that a man is one thing Yes.
then move on to the practices.
And I don't think the same way as you as in the company
Very good. This is one of the evidences, yes.
This is one of the evidences that a man increases and or decreases
hamdulillah one of the Alon one of the companions, he felt that he's losing his email.
So he went to the messenger Saracen and they told him that once we are with you, we have very strong a man. Once we leave, it goes down, it drops. So the prophet SAW Selim told him that if you are on the same level, that means they are not always on the same level. This is an evidence.
Go back to the I mentioned.
Yeah, you're Latina, Amina, Amina, all you who believe you already have belief, belief. What does that mean? If you already have belief why why you are asked to believe
increase your belief. That's the meaning of the
again, the is
very good buzzer and Abdullah.
Indeed, the believers are those who when the Ayat of Allah recited what happened to them,
Now why the deviant sex they said, a man is one thing. First, they did not want to include actions in the man. They wanted to say it's only saints. Consequently, you don't have to do anything.
And you are a believer. So if you are the laziest person just by saying you are a believer, that's it.
They said the man is one thing. So they based all their fossils on that that's the essence. That's the basis of their
fossils. They did not understand that the man could be several branches. We have the Hadith in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim that a man consists of more than 60 divisions.
That means the man is more than one thing.
You may fulfill some of them. You may not. It's not equal the one who does only two of the 70 or the 60.
And the one who did them all. It's not equal.
So this is an evidence that a man increases. Yes.
Very good. Very good. This is another evidence.
And actually it is mentioned here.
Ibrahim alayhis salam, he told Allah subhana wa Tada. He asked him to show him how he
brings them to life.
With call Abraham or be any Nikita Hinata call it lm two min.
Allah asked him Didn't you believe? said yes, but I want my heart to be reassured.
Carla Bella Bella can lead in Nickleby.
So this is an extra level.
All these are evidences that the man indeed increases and decreases.
Someone comes and says, I agree with you, a man increases but it doesn't decrease.
You could go up but you cannot go down.
So once you have Eman, that's it. Now you are going upskill you don't go down.
So I agree with you because you caught the eye of a blind man a salon, the i O you who believe believe in Allah means increase your belief.
And the believers are those who when the act of Allah recited it increases. That's clear. But it doesn't decrease.
If you lose your Eman, you lose. You lose it totally.
Whether it increases or you lose it totally. again why they say this because they believe the man is one thing. Whether you get it or you lose it, you don't get part of it and lose part of what do you say? You agree with them? We demand increases yes because of the evidences but it doesn't decrease.
Very good. So you agree with the deviant sex.
It's very hard. So if we can this believer
totally does believe there is a future
Because remember many deviant sects like coloriage
mata Zilla, they said whoever committed a major sin is not Muslim. They did not say he is this believer. They said he is in between. So you agree with that?
Yeah, yeah. Allah forgives that's in the hereafter. We don't know what Allah will do with those people, but in life India and in this life, we don't treat them like believers no like this believers, actually the coverage. They consider them too far. They fought many Muslims, just because they committed one sin.
That's what they say. So what do you say about this? Why? You just you just said I can't believe in this.
So again, my question Can a man decreases
instead of losing it all? You could lose part of it. What's the evidence?
I don't. Well, yeah. So until now, we don't have evidence so we should not.
So what do you think
Eman does not decrease? If it was decreased? It goes totally. Yes.
what a man a man is actions and this is a proof This is the saying of scholar. And this has nothing to do with my question. Does a man decrease or not? That's my question.
My question is not to tell me so and so said so and so.
So it has to decrease hadith of hamdulillah. That's true. But I want something else because this is they may tell you this is not it's about increasing not decreasing.
Because one sees what the prophet SAW Selim, it increases.
You don't mind Hades, any idea that proves a man does decrease.
When you commit a sin, what happens? Do you lose your Eman?
You don't lose your man. Well, we have a hadith that whoever like when when the adulterer commits adultery, he loses a man. How do you prove that it's not losing the man totally. It's losing part of the man. How do you prove that?
Well, you see, is the problem. The prophet SAW Selim they didn't he say that once you commit a sin, there will be a black.in your heart
if you do repentance, what happens? It will be wiped out to be removed. If you commit another sin what happens?
It increases He did not say from the first sin you lose your Eman because if you lost your Eman from the first sin.
It doesn't matter how many sins you commit afterwards. So this is one evidence
and other evidence.
The prophet SAW Selim said that a man wears out just like the clothes
and then a man unless laco can make a soap.
This is in unhackme and Pavani.
This is very important evidence. So the companions of the Prophet SAW Selim, how do we renew our Eman? If it was out, what did he say?
By saying Laila hi llama?
Who said this? I
said this ayah Shahada
Shahada, who said this is
bizarre This is against you, not for you.
It mentions increment of a man that's true. But for decrement it mentioned that
What did it say?
That amridge son alaric similar to him Cafiero. They died as disbelievers that's that proves that a man does not decrease
It removed it's removed totally. So be careful when you caught it or Hadith to know the point of it.
akattak Nakita can la him Shay and kalila. That's true.
There are many evidences again, if you if you talk to
a deviant person, I don't believe you will be able to convince him. There are many evidences for them. So you have to have also evidences.
There are many, many hobbies. But here comes the question now. Okay, fine. Let's say, we agree with you. A man increases a man, what's the fruit? Why we discuss it, whether we say a man is one thing or a man is lots of things. It could be increased, it could be decreased, you may lose parts of it. You may lose it all if you don't do anything. What's the fruit? Yes.
Of course, if we say a man is one thing that means one use once you say Laila heilala. Once you do a good deed, you got your email, so there is no need to do anything else.
So this is one important thing. The other thing on the opposite side, if we say a man is one thing, once you lose it, you don't lose part of it, you lose it totally. So you become what?
a disbeliever or to some deviant sex. They did not say he is a disbeliever. But he's in between. That means they will wait for you to commit one sin.
But that's not the true collision.
Allah subhanaw taala encouraged the believers who committed sins to repent, to seek for forgiveness.
Strengthen the man Yes, this is another evidence for increment.
So we said we have like at least three four evidences, it proves that a man does increase.
But decreasing the man you need more evidences?
He replied, Yes.
Yes, by the remembrance of Allah the man increases. Yeah.
What about decreasing?
What do we have else?
Very good. Yeah. This against shows you that a man is different levels. Because the prophets I seldom said, Whoever saw
it should forbid it. You should deny, reject the evil with his hand. If he was not able, then he should do it with his tongue. He was not able then with his heart and that's the least the least means there is more and there is more. So the prophets, Allah Himself divided among two levels.
So it's not equal, the one who prays only five times a day only. And the one who goes to the masjid he prays there, he prays the Noah Phil and he prays the MLA and he he prays all these prayers, they are not equal. And the same thing with the other types of a bad
so a man has different levels. And with this inshallah we'll conclude our session for today. Although Salallahu Salam and Andrea hamanasi. Is there any question about
the issues of a man? Again, we have, does the man increase or decrease? This is your job you need to know at least three evidences for each one, it increases or decreases? What's the fruit? If we say a man increases or decreases? What are the pillars of the man and that's the evidence we have added jabril What's the difference between Islam and the man? That's the big question that we did not answer
and we will start with it inshallah next class.
But I could not do it until
you answer the question about the definition of a man
