So now when it comes to law, thank you for joining us and actually the class. Today inshallah we'll continue the discussion about the shark. We mentioned last time the dangers of shark and the consequences, the evil consequences if someone committed shirk. And we mentioned that it is a reason for eternity and Hellfire, the one who commits commits shirk, he will be abiding in Hellfire forever as Allah subhana wa tada says,
Holly Didn't he had a bad day they are there in forever.
Whoever commits shark also
they will be forbidden paradise. In Naumann, you Shrek beeline for Katara Allahu Allah heljan. Wherever commits Sheikh Allah subhana wa Taala has forbidden him
entering paradise. So
the one who commits Shirky will be in Hellfire forever. He will not enter Paradise, it will nullifies all the good deeds.
For God Harriet Harman orfila harati Manhasset, in the true loser is the one who loses his deeds and the Day of Judgment. So it nullifies all the deeds as well. These are
few consequences for the shark.
We also mentioned that shark is divided into two major categories, major shift and minor shift.
And we knew how to differentiate between major and minor shift. major shift is the one that will cause you to enter to enter Hellfire forever. While minor shirk is a major sin, it could be forgiven, and it could not be forgiven as well. Many scholars said, minor shirk is not forgiving. Of course they mean if you did not repent, while major sins in general, like stealing, committing adultery, fleeing from the battlefield, it could be forgiven. But the minor shake, many scholars said it is not forgiven. As long as you don't repent if you repent from it, it will be forgiven. all sins are forgiven. If you repent to Allah subhana wa Tada. However, we need to know exactly what's
the definition of major sick and minor shake. We mentioned the definition of major shake. Could someone remind me what's the definition of major shake?
What's the definition of major shake?
associate someone with Allah. That's the only thing. But if you did not associate someone with Allah, you don't say he is like God,
but you love him more than God.
I'm not asking you about the different divisions of the faith. The definition of major shift, you know
No, that's not the only thing you are mentioning one part Mashallah, that means you're studying very well. Good. Are you ready for the exam? What's the definition of the major shift? Yes, we have an answer from the students online
Yes, major shock is great injustice. What is it?
That does not answer my question. What is the great injustice major ship? What is it?
Water is something you drink.
What's the major shift? We said diversion of any type of a bad to other than Allah? Sort of for now. I mean, and I bet that in your area, that's the major shift. It includes, it includes
so associating partners, along with Allah subhanaw taala it includes setting up rivals to Allah subhanaw taala but that's not the only thing so any diversion of any type of a better to other than Allah is major shift.
What about the minor ship? What's the definition of the minor ship?
Now we know that's the major ship
if you divert any type of other to other than Allah, you committed major ship What about the minor ship?
What's the definition of the miners? schicke.
Could someone tell me
The mine Yes, we have an answer.
Rebel interest no interest is not minor shake it I said. Minor shake is showing off.
the definition. That's one example for my new ship. That does not mean all the minor ship is showing off. There are other types of minor ship. So that's not the sufficient definition. What's the minor ship?
Okay, look what it says anything that was forbidden as a means to the major schicke anything that eventually leads you to the major schilke
and called schilke whether in the Quran or in the Sunnah is minor shirke.
Anything that could lead you
or it's means to major shake
is considered minor shake.
It is called shake and the book of Allah and the Sunnah of the messenger Salah that separates between the minor and the major.
Anything that leads you to the major shift and it is called check, then it is
it is minor shift.
What's the example for that?
The messenger cenla mentioned in Naropa what Mr. Mattila schicke indeed,
Nokia is sick.
What do we say it is major or minor?
It is minor, but it could lead to the major ship.
If someone hangs something
there is minus schicke.
Yes, do we have something
exactly the doctor cured me who cures you?
Allah subhanaw taala
so this is minor shift.
Because it could lead you to the major shift once you believe that the doctor has the power of Allah subhanaw taala then you committed major shift. But once you say the doctor cured me This is minor schicke
so that's the Minor Prophets or Salim said whoever swears by other than Allah. He committed Sheikh Mohammed for big life hakodesh rock
is it major or minor? It is minor.
It doesn't take you out of the fold of Islam but it's still it's a major sin. When you say by the prophet, I swear by the prophet or I swear by
the angels or whatever this is minor ship it is sick, it is a major sin.
So I hope now, we understand very well. The difference between major shift and minor shift. Now we are moving to the historical
brief of the ship. When did it start?
When the chick start on earth? Yes.
Perfect. No. is the first one to commit chick.
What do you mean, at his time? At the time of Noah? before the time of Noah was there initially?
No. Do you have any evidence?
So she said at the time of not. Now again, let's go back. When the when Allah subhanaw taala sent down Adam, we believe that Adam is the first human being Adam was a prophet. So definitely, there was no * at his time after his generation did it? Did they have Schick?
Yes or no. No until when?
10 generations until the generation of snow so we learn now there are 10 generations between Adam and No. What's the evidence that in 10 generations there was no shake. You need always to know the evidences. What's the evidence?
chronica says between Adam and Noah 10 generations there is no shirt between them.
We have to be very careful if you say there is an ayah and we don't know it.
There is a hadith What does it say we have hundreds of 1000s of Hadith which one of them?
You see it's important always you believe in something? What's the evidence?
Don't just copy others.
What's the evidence?
What is that Hadith?
We have Hadith. In Sahih al Bukhari from urban Abbas Alon Omar. He said between Adam and Noah, there was 10 generations
they were all
On the heat on the correct religion, monotheism, oneness of Allah subhanaw taala and it started at the time of Noah. So we learned from this many lessons one of them between Adam and Noah, there was 10 generations.
In these generations there was no schicke
no hana is Salam scholars say he is the first messenger. After the prophets now they they believe there are prophets between Adam and Noah, but again, the prophet His job is not to change the religion once there is a need.
Which means there is a shark then there has to be a messenger sent to them. That's exactly what happened. And the time of no honey, Sarah. Okay, so now we know there is an authentic hadith by even Ambassador Dylan, Houma that between Adam and Noah, there was 10 generations. All of them were on the head. And she started at the time of
the Kumasi How did it start? Now? We know it is at the time of no honey salam, how did it start?
How did she start? Yes.
Okay. The people she has that says the people started worshipping righteous are the righteous people. How?
How you need to mention sufficient answer yes.
When they died, they made idols of them.
Exactly what happened? Remember shaytan is very smart.
He has gone as long as he gets his goal, he doesn't care how long it will take from you to follow him. What happened? Before no Halle salon? There were righteous people.
There were righteous people. They were five five people.
And they are mentioned actually in the Quran. Do you know where?
In syrup? No. Hi, Sara.
Do you memorize syrup? No. How? No?
Tony, nice to
call you later on. I
don't know what that was one. Well, I
wanna Sir, what is this? Alas, Hunter is talking about what? Those are the righteous people, what happened before the time of No, they were righteous people. And when they died shaytan came to their people, to the people remaining people, he did not tell them worship those righteous people, because he knows they will not listen to him. What did he tell them? He told them, you see the these were righteous people. Why don't you form
and their forms. So they will remind you of the worship, he came to them as an advisor. He told them I want to advise you. So once you see them what will happen? It will encourage you to worship Allah subhanaw taala more and more. And they did that. They made idols It was not seen as idols at their time.
And they, they encouraged themselves and they bother once they saw them. Then that generation died. The Next Generation came, what happened. The shaytan came again. He taught the next generation
those are the idols that you
your father's worship them, so worship them, and they listen, they worship the idols. That's how she started on Earth.
So it started at the time of no Holly solemn
and therefore Allah subhanaw taala sent to them know Hari salam to correct their religion to correct their arcada to have them believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala
I advise you to read surah No, remember those names? What sua youth yoke Nasser these are five names for five righteous people.
Now, we said that ship is divided into two categories, major and minor. Now we're moving to the types of ships
the types of Shrek
look at this ayah
Allah subhanaw taala says pulito levina zamindar nila named economy collaborative is somewhat out of luck.
Well, Allah Humphrey, Hema me sherkin omala homeodomain Bye
Say call upon other gods whom you set up. besides Allah, they have no power, not the weight of an atom in the heavens or on Earth, nor share have they therein? Nor is any of them a helper to Allah subhanaw taala.
Now, could you tell me what you do learn from this ayah?
What do you learn from this?
What does it tell you?
Your job is to derive the rule is to derive the lessons from the eye. Now, here's an idea
with many lessons,
others are weak.
They cannot do anything what else not intercession can avail in his presence will attend Felicia to anger. Yes.
Yes, no. other gods have
a weight of an atom in the last demeaning. What does that tell you?
The gods aren't equal to Allah. So it denied one type of chick which is
equal gods to Allah What else?
Scott scholars when they mentioned this ayah they said
this ayah divided CIC to four types.
is the shift of position.
there is something who has any type of position, whether in earth or
in the heavens on Earth, Allah denied that Allah said, No one has the weight of an atom, whether in on earth or in heavens, so Allah denied the ship of possession. Now they say he is the possessor of this is my property, he is the landlord, the real, the real position is to Allah subhanaw taala no one has any sort of position, on earth or in heavens. So this is the first ship that was denied and they say, the second thing should have sharing. They don't share Allah subhanaw taala in anything.
The sharing of help Allah subhanaw taala does not need the help of anyone.
No one can help Allah subhanaw taala Allah is not in need for the help of anyone.
And the last type, the shape of intercession, there are no intercessors except for whom Allah subhanaw taala allows
one Latin philosopher to endow.
So you see,
there are four types of schilke mentioned here. And this is let's go back to the IRA. And look at it again. Look how scholars divided check to four types here.
Shake of possession, shake of sharing,
shake of hell and shake of intercession.
When you say, I know I don't worship other gods, I will only worship Allah. But I know that someone will intercede for me in is in a sense that even if I made a mistake, even if I committed sins, Allah will not punish me because he will this one will intercede for me. Allah reminded us that no one can intercede without the permission of Allah subhanaw taala.
So this is type of shift. No one can help Allah subhanaw taala no one is able to reach that level where he can help Allah subhanaw taala so no one will help you. If you seek help you seek help from law that's why Allah says well yeah can Stein you alone we worship and You alone we seek for help or we ask for help.
So Allah is telling you in this ayah Do not ask help from anyone but from Allah subhanaw taala
Okay, so here in this ayah This is one I again, it has four types.
Now we have more types of schicke six divisions, some scholars, they divided six to six divisions
schicke of independence shacharis the clan
What do we mean?
You say there are two
Equal Gods each one is independent.
Each one is independent,
proving to independent Gods like the Maggie, what do they say? The Persians, the fire worshippers
they say there is a God of the good things and there is a God of evil things, they are equal, but they are separate.
So, this is the issue of independence
to prove to independent Gods
The second type shake of splitting,
you form gods or you split Gods for manga, you form many gods for manga.
Do you have an example for this?
Shake off splitting
this what do they say Actually, this is more close to the first one. Because they say each one is independence, independent god of love and God.
Do they say they are equal? Or they say there is there is achieved God.
Okay, if they believe there is a main God then but we have clearer example. That's a good example. Yes.
Hinduism who is the major God, Buddha?
And there was what what do they say?
Yes, I think Hinduism is a good example.
They say everything is God.
Yeah, but but they have the, the main God.
I don't know. What about Christians? What about Christians? What do they believe?
What do they say about Jesus? The Son of God. Right. So these all these are examples.
The third type shake of means, what do we mean by that? worshiping other gods to reach to Allah subhanaw taala to reach Allah subhanaw taala
what's the example for that the pig is of the Arab.
You know how she started in Arabia. We mentioned that by Ahmed Al Jose. He brought God with him idol with him from from a sham. Because they told him that once we asked for something, we ask this God and we are given. So he he brought God and he said this God will will be for me the means to reach Allah subhanaw taala that's what Allah says in the Quran mana boom in laliga carbona and Eliza we are not worshipping them except that they will.
They are means for us to reach Allah subhanaw taala
so this is schicke
the fourth type schicke of imitation.
Most of the people nowadays if they commit shirk, they don't know what they're doing but they are just copying others should
worshipping other than Allah subhanaw taala copying other people. Now many people when the prophets confronted them, why do you worship these gods in Argentina and Aloma we found our parents our forefathers doing this so we're doing it
at an Hannah and nabooda Miami to do forbids us from worshipping what our parents worship. So, this is true they are committing shoot.
Why because they are copying their parents
number five schilke in reasons
What do we mean by that? When you say the doctor, the doctor killed me.
We got the rain because of the clouds.
You give the effects to the reasons not to the Creator.
This is this is one type of shake, shake off reasons.
So now we have five types circulus the clan should get the value
should kill as Bab schokolade should kill wasa and the last one should have purposes.
What do you mean by that? Your purpose or your intention is impure. Working with impure intention, like showing off this is sick
Prophet SAW Selim said area, he said about showing off it is what it is schicke
are these examples clear?
Now these are six types of scholars mentioned
circulus declare the variable, the creep, the cleat, the spab and the ladder up.
These are six types of schicke. Let's go back
quickly. shift of independence shift of splitting, shake off means shake of imitation shake and reasons and shake off purposes. You got them all. Okay, here's the question.
What are the types of the major shift? Now the main division is major shift and minor shift. Once we say this is major shift, that means it takes you out of the fold of Islam minor shift, it's a major sin, you're still Muslim. These are six types.
Which one is major shift? of these six types?
Yes, do you have an answer?
shift of independence? It is what? major shift Why? You claim there are two gods. Okay, that's the only one
shake of splitting. Is it a major shift? If you say here's the my god
is half God.
Is it major or minor? Yes, Shahada.
One, two and three?
Sharjah says only five or six. So now we have 1234.
You need to mention why this is important. We already mentioned the examples of major and minor shift. We already mentioned the definition. We already mentioned the punishment. So go ahead. It's your job now to apply what you learned. Tell me what are of these types major shift cannot are minor shift.
Yes, you are attributing
what what belongs to Allah subhanaw taala only to other
creatures. So this is major shift.
A clear evidence for that what Allah says in the Quran, Allah kotkapura they disbelieved. Whoever said Isaiah is the son of Allah, He disbelieved. That's clear. Okay, what else
schilke of means.
Why it is major shift. They did not worship those idols. They know if you ask them Mozilla, they won't tell you Allah and they haven't. But we worship them as means.
Why it is major shift.
Okay, so you have to fulfill the below here.
If If it was not the ship, why would Allah send the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? Why would the prophet SAW Selim fight those people? Why would he tell them say Laila Illallah because it was not accepted from them, you claim that Allah is the Creator, you have to worship Him.
So this is the third type even the means it is shift. It is shift. So it is major shift. What about number four? Do you say it's major or minor? Major? Why?
So art? Isn't this an excuse for me? If I'm doing something
What if it's wrong, so it's not accepted? It is not accepted. Once you know what is right and what is wrong. It's not accepted from you to say, I'm only copying my parents. So even now, actually, the beginning pagans of the era at the time of the messenger cisilion. They are from that type, the click Copy because they only copied their parents, their parents committed the shift of means, but they copied them. Okay. So we have four types, our major shift, what about the fifth type?
Is it major minor?
says number five is minor. Why?
Why it is minor?
you are diverting to other than Allah few diverted to other than a lot isn't it major
using this as means we said we're using the means is what major so
it's not direct. So Abdullah is still saying it's major or minor.
What do you think I need answers.
It's minor, minor Why?
So if someone worshipped idol but he did not really mean to worship idol, it's accepted.
it is minor because it can lead to major. So, you are saying that it is a means to the major shift it is it could lead but it is by itself is not a major Why?
Well again here, you did not divert any type of a bad okay. But it is a means, so I agree it is minor schicke number five is minor shift. However, it could be major as well. Sometimes it could be as major, if you deny totally the ability of Allah subhanaw taala just like the rain, if you ignore the capability of Allah subhanaw taala or the earthquake, while the earthquake happened, you start explaining the geology and the crust and the earth.
And you don't say it is because Allah subhanaw taala wanted this many times you have the same reasons, you should logically you should have earthquake and you don't have it. So
what's the cause? Allah subhanaw taala wanted it to happen. So, if you totally ignore this and it happens always then it becomes major, but it is minor shift. Number five is minor. What about number six?
What about number six?
ship minor check of purposes.
it is minor again apply the rules, you are not diverting the type of data to other than Allah subhanaw taala but your intention is impure.
your intention is to please people while you're supposed to please Allah subhanaw taala and the prophet SAW Selim himself said that it is minor shift showing off his minor ship. So this is important example. This is what you may get in the exam. I may give you an idea. And I tell you what's the type of the shift key and is it major or minor?
That's the purpose you need to read. Now when you read the Quran, you read the is about schilke you need to learn what are
the types of the shark that this is talking about.
Now we have something very important
the types of the ship that are mentioned in the Quran. Now Are these all these six types mentioned in the Quran or not?
Are they mentioned in the Quran or not? If you say yes, you need the ayat If you say no, you need to say why.
In the Quran did Allah subhanaw taala mention six types of schicke are more or less.
You want me to make this as an assignment for you.
Actually, we'll stop here inshallah. This is the end of our session. We will start off tomorrow by this topic, the types of the shape that are mentioned in the Quran inshallah Allah La Solomon
