we derive our religion from the Quran and the Sunnah. That's where we take our religion from, which means people do not have the right to legislate in Islam
is only Allah Subhana Allah Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
This is one of the important things about Islamic al Qaeda, that it is derived from the book of Allah from the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam.
When we say that, that means also that there is nothing added to it.
Unlike all other religions,
people added to these religions, people changed. They removed few things, they added few things. In Islam, there is nothing added. You cannot come after 500 years and say, This is not valid anymore. I have to change. We don't have this in Islam. That's why it is unique. It came from Allah subhanaw taala. The Quran is the source and the Sunnah of the messenger sauce Allah. No one can change, no one can add, no one can delete anything from it.
This is very unique about the Islamic creed, which you may not find in any other religion.
The other thing about Islam is that it is preserved.
It is preserved.
All other religions were changed.
And the people themselves they admit, ask any Christian
about Christianity. Was it the same 200 years ago, it changed, especially the Catholic Church. It changed a lot.
the Catholic people they were allowed, they were not allowed to divorce. Now they've started allowing divorce. They're fasting changed, lots of things are changing in Christianity, the same thing for other religions. But Islam, it does not change, it will never change. Because, again, the source is Allah subhanaw taala. And it was meant to be for all mankind. Now Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran,
when Martin in the Hall of Fame, in every nation, there was a warner there was a messenger. So every messenger was sent to his people. That's why the message was meant only for that time. Unlike Muhammad Sallallahu
womac sanaka Inlet calf and minasi we have not sent you except for all mankind. So it is different in Islam. It is different.
It is preserved and it is for all mankind.
Now in the Bible, it says that a Salah Salam was sent only to the children of Israel. But that's not the case with Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
One important quality of the Islamic creed is it is the creed of the hate, the hate monotheism, the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala.
This is very important, because it is basically the the religion of all messengers.
While I cut that in half equally on mattina, Solon and Abdullah, we have certainly sent in every nation and messenger to worship Allah.
So all messengers
they had the same call, they preach the same message to worship Allah alone. Nowadays, how many religions they asked you to worship one God, only Islam on Islam. Christians, they worship many gods. They believe in Trinity. They believe that a Salish Salaam is God, they believe in Allah subhanaw taala. So it's not what one god Hinduism or other religions
except Islam. Islam is the religion of the hate. the oneness of Allah subhana wa Tada.
Another quality in Islam
is that it doesn't require any
mediators between you and Allah subhanaw taala there is no man between you and Allah subhanaw taala
you want forgiveness? You ask it from Allah subhanaw taala directly.
You want to pray to Allah subhanaw taala you don't have to ask the permission of someone or to tell someone to pray on your behalf. You pray directly. You ask Allah subhanaw taala whatever you want.
You committed a sin. You ask him for forgiveness. You don't go to a middleman
Enter such enter an intersection between you and Allah subhanaw taala
no one intercede for your sins.
You ask Allah subhanaw taala forgiveness
because those people, if you ask them to intercede, they themselves, they need intercession for themselves. You cannot take them as intercessors because they themselves they need
forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. So this is very important.
Islam is different than other religions.
It's not like all other
religions, especially nowadays.
In principle, all religions came to convey the same message to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone, but not anymore, except for Islam.
How do you start becoming a Muslim? The first thing is to say
la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah
eyeshadow Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah. This is what we call a Shahada, the testimony
law ilaha illAllah Muhammadan rasul Allah.
Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to ask the people to say one word, that's all he asked them to say. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah and Allah to Flo say, Laila, hello Allah and you will prosper you will succeed. That's all he asked them to do. La ilaha illa Allah. This is the word Kalamata Toshi, no God, but Allah.
Now, when you analyze this statement, the sentence What does it say la ilaha illAllah
La ilaha illAllah. It has two things. negation and affirmation. La ilaha
illa Allah, except Allah.
So you start with what? With affirmation with or with negation?
With negation, law, Allah, no God. If you say no God and you stop, did you fulfill
If you say no God, then you are not Muslim. You don't believe in any god. But you say no God, but Allah. So you start with negation, to tell you that it is important to deny any
god besides Allah subhanaw taala there is only one God.
No God, but Allah. So when you negate all gods, you affirm, affirm divinity of Allah subhanaw taala you affirm the Lordship of philosophy donnatella La ilaha illAllah there is no God, but Allah subhanaw taala.
So it's not enough to say there is God.
It's not enough because the kuffar in Mecca, they didn't they say that there is one God.
They believed in Allah subhanaw taala but they did not believe that he's the only God because the messenger send them
was told by Allah subhanaw taala to ask them,
who created you, and they will tell Allah, but the problem
although they, they will they testify that Allah has created them. They did not worship Him. They ascribed other gods with Allah subhanaw taala. So that's why it was not enough.
To become enough you have to negate all gods and to believe in one God.
negation and affirmation remember, always the two conditions, there is negation there is no God, except Allah. Only one God.
What does it mean?
That Allah is Illallah? What's the exact meaning of La la la la?
What's the exact meaning of La la la la? Could someone tell me
there is no God but Allah, what does it mean? There is no God but Allah.
no deity worthy of worship. Some people, they say, no creator except Allah.
How about this?
Is that the meaning of your statement? Or it's different?
Yes. So if someone said there is no creator except Allah.
Is that sufficient or not? know why.
You may say he's the Creator, but you don't worship Him.
So it's not enough. That's exactly what the kuffaar said. The kuffaar of Mecca they justified if someone asked them who created heavens and earth who created you, they
Say Allah. So it's not enough. That's not the meaning of Laila heilala.
Some people say there is no God, but Allah.
That's not the exact meaning. Because in reality, people claim
and they ascribe the Divinity to many things, and they say this is God. So there are gods and reality whether they deserve or not, that's another issue, but people worship other gods. So the exact meaning, as you said, no deity worthy of worship, except Allah, Lama Buddha, have gone Illallah That's the meaning of La ilaha illAllah.
No one deserves to be worshipped except Allah subhana wa Tada. He is the true God, who should be worshipped.
That's the meaning of La ilaha illa Allah.
So it is important to understand the statement that you say
it's important to know the difference if someone said there is no creator, but Allah, there is no God but Allah, there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, what's the difference? There is a huge difference. They are totally different.
As a Muslim,
or as a human being, what's the first thing you should do?
What's the first thing you should do?
The first duty
on human beings What?
In order to pray you need to be what?
clean so cleaning is the first duty.
belief, okay, we have different answers. How can we judge? What is the evidence?
What is the evidence?
dako fear Allah.
Ma fear Allah. Christians fear Allah, US fear Allah.
Allah obey Allah how.
That's why it's important to know the evidences.
When the messengers are seldom sent mother or the alarm team and what did he tell him?
Let the first thing you preach be what what was the first thing the prophet SAW? Selim asked him to convey to the
Call them firstly to La ilaha illAllah. So that's the first duty in the Quran.
The first order came in Surat Al Baqarah. was what?
would become that's the first order came in the Quran. That's the first command mudaraba so the first duty is what? To worship Allah. That's the first duty upon every Muslim.
Very good. Subbu
very good. first duty upon every human being is to worship Allah.
Yeah, you are not a Buddha. But
once you worship Allah, once you testify that he is one God, then
as Solomon said, You pray you fast but you don't do that if you are
not believing in one God, if you're not worshiping one God, so first you have to worship Allah.
And again, the ayah while at the bafna frequently omitted or stolen, we have certainly sent in every nation and messenger to do what enabled doula to worship Allah. So that's the the commandment of the messengers
to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Someone asked, what are we going to get? What am I going to get if I
fulfilled that of hate? If I said La ilaha illAllah if our worship Allah
what will happen? Why should people do it?
Going to Jenna, isn't that sufficient for you? Isn't that enough?
pleasing Allah subhanaw taala.
Here are a few Hadith and about the virtue of the hate.
As the sister said, Whoever said Laila Han Allah, the halogen among Kala
Allah, Allah the halogen that's what the messenger saya Salim said,
Call Allah Allah Allah Allah the halogen. So it is your path to paradise.
You want to enter Paradise you cannot enter Paradise without Lana. Hi Lola.
Is there any evidence?
What about people who give in charity? Who has?
Someone has a good heart? But he associate some partners with Allah subhanaw taala Can he enter paradise? Know why
he is good.
What do you think is not good? Because Allah says in the Quran in nama usually Villa indeed whoever associates with the last Hunter, for Katara Allah Allah, Allah has forbidden paradise forbidden in paradise.
So it is forbidden. Your key to Paradise is that Illa Illa Allah
the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala
to remind you of the virtue of the Laila Hello Allah,
I got the Hadith of the card, do you know this hadith?
Do you know this Hadith of the card? What's this hadith?
Exactly, how many registers it will outweigh
a man on the day of judgment will be brought before Allah subhanaw taala for the recording,
there will be 99 records
bad deeds, with say at 99 Records. And he will be asked, Do you deny any of this? And he would say no. I admit that I committed all these things. 99 Records, it's not 99 bad deed it's 99 Records, each record with lots of bad deeds and they are stretched
as far as you can see.
So the man with the man would would be asked, Do you deny any this did my Allah will ask him Did my scribers the one who wrote recorded your deeds? Did they do injustice? And the man would say no.
So Allah subhanaw taala will ask him to
to witness his scale to weigh his deeds and the man would say what will happen? I have 99 records of deeds. So nothing will help us panatela will tell yes there is a cart written in it La ilaha illAllah he said La ilaha illa Allah
so this one card will outweigh the 99 Records. It will be heavier than the 99 Records. So with the name of Allah subhanaw taala there is nothing heavier.
This Hadith in the Muslim Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah
you don't have to write all the Hadith you can
go back it's very famous Hadith. You should know it's authentic hadith.
Is insulin a bit magic also uncertain. tirmidhi.
So that tells you how virtuous is to c'est la ilaha illa Allah
for Laila heilala.
On the day of fire of
what's the best day of the year?
Your malefor right, what's the evidence?
Yes, yes. The prophet SAW Selim said Cairo Do I have the best da is the DA on the day of RFM Well, hygroma kung fu and I want to be on amicably and the best, I said, and the messengers before me said
is La ilaha illAllah.
So it is the best law you could say, la la. The best word you could ever utter.
Is La Ilaha. Illa Allah.
It's not to tell your wife I love you. It is good to tell her but the best thing you could ever say la ilaha illa.
Nothing better than La ilaha illa Allah that's what the messenger Salim said. And this is again in southern Timothy
hijo de la la
la la la la la la la Mancha. hamdulillah crushing it.
Another story for more Sally's solemn when he asked Allah subhana wa Taala
to teach him something
that he would ask Allah subhanaw taala with. He wanted to pray to Allah subhanaw taala so he asked something special.
And Allah subhanaw taala told him, c'est la ilaha illa.
So musala said I'm told Allah subhanaw taala Oh Allah, everybody says that
he wanted something special. So Allah subhanaw taala told Musa or Musa if La ilaha illa Allah was in one side of the scale and the heavens and earth on another side,
that Allah Allah, Allah will outweigh
It is better than anything else, La ilaha illAllah.
Now, the point is what you knew that Allah Allah Allah is better. Now the point is to keep saying Allah, Allah Allah
make minimum requirement at least like 100 times 200 times, whatever you want. At least you have to say it every day.
We say it in the prayer during the show, do you say eyeshadow Allah Allah, Allah, Allah wa shadow Mohammed, Abu hora, Sula, but keep doing, it's the best thing you could ever say.
How many times you say on the day Hello, hi. I don't know, okay, how many times you said,
You should say the best thing more than any other thing. You should say lol and a lot more than any other thing.
So you need to practice what you're learning, say La la la la.
Now, this is the question, someone will come and we'll be very happy hamdulillah if I said La la la la homerenter paradise. If I said Lyla, halala no matter whatever I do,
it will not harm me, I will enter Paradise, even if I did lots of evil actions, because they will not reach 99 Records. So
I'm free to do whatever I want. This is the evidence he has an evidence they had if
if he said Lie, Lie Lie will enter Paradise.
So what do you say? Is that okay? Is that good?
Why? We need an evidence.
You need to believe in it.
Apply it. How
does that mean? The mere saying will not help.
Part of it. But there are
exactly. If you believe that Allah subhanaw taala is the only God you believe that you have to worship him. You should not disobey Him. You should not rely on it. That's why scholars, all of them agreed that there are conditions for Allah and Allah, because no one would come and say it is enough to say Laila Allah Allah and to worship the cross. I say Laila Allah, no one will tell you this is enough. You have to fulfill it is condition. It's conditions that Allah and Allah has conditions. La la la la has conditions.
That's why in the other Hadith, the prophet SAW Selim said Whoever said La ilaha illa Allah with certainty from his heart mukhin and be Kobe. So it's not enough just to utter this word, Laila heilala, you have to have certainty.
No man, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Mukunda Nickleby, this is the condition.
So there are conditions is important because some people will come and do tell you, it is enough to say Lyra Allah, Allah, I will enter Paradise and I will do whatever I want. The answer is no, you cannot do that.
Because you have to fulfill the conditions. Once you truly believe in Laila heilala, then you will enter Paradise. So now we will know these conditions, we have eight conditions.
Some scholars, six, seven, some scholars said eight.
The first condition is knowledge.
Knowledge, you need to know what you're saying. What's the evidence?
Can't I say lalalala? Without knowing? No, Allah says in the Quran.
And Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, know that there is no deity worship, worship except Allah. For Allah. Allah Allah Allah, Allah Allah
This is in Surah Mohammed
Mohammed Allah subhanaw taala says that Allah and Allah Allah Allah Allah.
So this is the first condition knowledge. That's why manohara Rahim Allah
and His book in the Sahara he said Bab la Columbian
knowledge before saying and doing
for the sayings and the actions. Babel l cowbell calm you have to know first you have to know that Laila heilala.
Second one is certainty, you have to be certain.
You cannot say there is no god except Allah, but maybe there is. This is contradiction. You have to have certainty. certainty means that you believe in it, you know for sure that there is only one God.
But Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, knowledge and certainty,
acceptance. That's another condition. You cannot say, Lyra, hello Allah and you go worship other gods that means you did not accept this,
Or you cannot say I will say Allah and Allah by but I don't agree with it. If you don't agree with it, then there is no meaning for saying it.
Because basically, you're not believing it. So you have to accept it.
And once you accept it, you have to show obedience to
be obedience means you apply it as the sister you apply it in your life.
You apply it in your life
by worshipping Allah subhanaw taala by avoiding sinning.
The fifth condition is truthfulness.
You cannot lie about it.
Some people would say Laila heilala but they don't believe in it.
Even though they know that there is no God but Allah, but they don't believe in it. They are not true when they say it, just like the hypocrites.
They say that Allah, but they are not truthful. They are liars. They are hypocrites. So you have to be truthful.
And you have to be sincere as well.
You don't say Lalalalala for the sake of people. People are saying it so I say it you have to be sincere and
even if everybody disbelieved you believe in Allah.
You show sincerity and you have to love it.
You cannot worship Allah subhanaw taala without love.
Worship entails love.
And when you say Laila Han Allah because some people may say, I will say line a lot and they know there is no God. But I don't like this. You cannot say that you have to love what you're saying.
Love is important.
As Allah said, well Edina Amano I should have been Lila.
alladhina amanu vanilla disbelievers. They take God's besides Allah and they love them. But the believers, they love Allah subhanaw taala more. So you have to love it. You have to love this word. You have to love Allah.
All scholars agree that if you don't love Allah, or if you don't love the messenger sighs Allah you are this believer. Even if you
do all the Sunnah of the messenger assassin if you don't love the messenger Selim or if you don't love Allah subhanho wa Taala
You are a disbeliever Love is a main condition in La ilaha illa Allah. So these are the seven conditions. And some scholars added the last one which is the negation to negate any other gods
But if you fulfilled these seven conditions, the eighth one is automatically fulfilled as well. That's why some scholars mentioned seven, others mentioned eight.
So you reject anything
And they wrote
some nice lines of poetry, or Misha wrote in Tibet in a toy that affino says that lol Malia Greenwald, kabuli
aku Allah philosopher mahabhava kokkola Halima.
the conditions listed in poetry that will help you to memorize them, but it's in Arabic, so inshallah someone could write them in English. Yes.
