Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Alhamdulillah. Wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. So Sharla This will be our final lesson for the year. And our final lesson in the series on nakida. Doha we are.
So today's lessons very simple, very straightforward. I'm going to read through the entire textbook one more time, revising over all of the core tenants of the upgrade of ultra well, Gemma and just stopping to explain any points that I feel may need.
clarification one more time, right. So this is a revision session. Essentially, there's not going to be any new information in this session. But it's important for the sake of retention, that we go to the entire textbook. It's a very short textbook to go through the entire thing in one sitting, and to
just make sure that we are familiar with all of the tenants of our Peter overholser network Jamal. So we said this is the book written by Mr. Harvey degrade Hanafi scholar outlining the aqeedah of the Hanafi madhhab, which is
part of the appeal of our Jamaat, there's just some secondary issues. We have VRP that differs from humbly Peter and Ashley Akita, right. But none of these differences are big enough to push any of these schools outside the four walls in our general they all collectively form a holster in our Jamaat. Now I myself, I follow humbly appear. Nonetheless, this is the oldest, the oldest updated textbook available on the market. And so
this is, you know, the earliest aqeedah we can study. And that's why I believe it's important that we go through it and we understand it properly. And the few points with the differences we explain those points and why the author might have differed on some of the secondary issues of appeal. So the author begins in the name of Allah Rahmani Raheem we seek His help or praise for Allah, Lord of the worlds. This is the clear presentation of the appeal of a wholesome novel jamaah according to the opinions and the hub of our honeybourne not man even serving a COVID rahima Hola. I will use of Yahoo even for him and Saudi and Abu Abdullah Mohammed Shivani in one much money
and what they believe regarding the fundamentals of the religion and they fit in a lot of the world. So at the how he begins by saying this is the appeal of a hoshina. Well, Gemma according to the Hanafi madhhab. So the hanabi branch of a husband, while Gemma and I as I mentioned in the first lecture, many people are unaware of the fact that the mother hip have deferred over aqeedah issues as well not just fake issues.
The clearest example we'll come to is the one of what is the definition of Mark and does he Mark increase or decrease? They are very, very clear difference of opinion between the HaNavi and the humbling markups on this. These issues of Akita and it's not a big deal. Both opinions fall within the framework of a home sooner while Gemma right so the first topic discussed is to heed and we spent the entire first one hour discussing tawheed we said that
at the house he says we say that about the oneness of Allah believing in the guidance of Allah Subhana Allah, that Allah is one without any partners. There is nothing like him, nothing can overpower him. There is nothing work your worship besides him. He is eternal without any beginning and he is continuous without any ending. He will never perish nor will he come to an end. Nothing happens except what He wills. No imagination can conceive of him no understanding can comprehend him. He does not resemble any of his creation. He is living and he never dies, always sustaining and never sleeping, he creates without the need to be created. He provides for his creation without any
effort. He causes debt with no fear of consequences he resurrects without any difficulty. He has existed from the time when these timeless attributes before his creation, which added added nothing to his essence. There was not already amongst his attributes as attributes were before creation they will remain forever. It is not because he created the creation that he gains the name the Creator, nobody's making that he gave the name the maker. He has the quality of lordship without requiring anything to Lord over the quality of being the creator without creating anything. Just as He resurrected the dead after the day first had like he deserved his name before he brought him to
life. Likewise he deserved any of created before creating. This is because he has power over all things and all things are in need of him every matter is easy for him. He has no need of anything, for there is nothing like him and he is the year in the scene. He created the creation with his knowledge. He decreased the destinies for them. He sets out the lifespan. Nothing was hidden from him before he created them. He knew what they
We'll do before he created me commanded him to obey Him and you forbade him to disobey Him. Everything that occurs in according to his decree and world, his world is always accomplished that will have the servant is only what he wants for them. Whatever he works for them comes to be whatever he does not work for them does not come to be the guy to me. Once he protects and secures them from grace, he leaves a string whom he was humiliated puts them in a contract for justice, all of them go back and forth by his world between his grace and His justice. He's exalted above having any opposites or partners, none can overpower his degree changes judgment overpower his command, we
believe in all of this, we are certain that it is all from him. So the section of dough heat is one of the longest sections in this book.
And for good reason, though, he is the foundation of our EDA, it is the unique central concept of Islam, that makes Islam different from every other way of life. And therefore, it is essential that we understand this thoroughly before going any deeper into any other topic. And that's why we spend our entire hour on this section of the history they are entire courses out there by other teachers covering just oh heat, and sometimes just covering a specific type of heat. So, the most important points from this chapter that we all have to always remember, Allah is one without any equals or partners or opposites, right, he is infinite and eternal, in all of his attributes, He always was
and always will be. And lasercom Miss Lee he shade There is nothing like him. Whatever the mind imagines cannot be him. our imaginations cannot grasp him. Our minds cannot understand it very important principle when it comes to powder and other and other aspects of our Kedah. And you just last week, I was doing some Dawa, and
an elderly lady an agnostic, she asked me about the Islamic concept of God. And I explained to her this concept of Lisa commission, he and she was blown away by this concept, because she said, one of the reasons she became agnostic is that every religion has us worshipping a man. This is the first time she heard of a religion, where we have this concept of a God that is beyond human ability to imagine or to understand, actually made a lot of sense. So she says she was going to look into Islam further. And she was going to study for the mela guide her towards the truth. So it's a very, very important and powerful and unique principle of our religion, Lisa qamishli Shea. And it really is
the foundation of our belief in tequila, we'll see. But that's really what the entire concept of to hear or smell as if it evolves. So I believe there's only one creator, there is nothing like him, he is infinite in his names and attributes. And the other most important thing is that we worship Him alone. We worship Allah alone. This is absolutely important. And he said that the scholars of Akita, they have divided to him in different ways. So some of them have divided it into two healer beliefs and Tokido actions. So we believe that there's only one God who is infinite. And we need to attribute a unique, and we worshipping destitute heat of action as what we do with our token, right.
So one division is of the heat of action and to heat up beneath the other division, which has become more popular in our times. And there's nothing wrong with either division is to divide into tawheed of lordship to heat of names and attributes and tawheed of worship. Now, again, the division into these categories, this is a manmade thing, is not compulsory to to believe in these names and labels, right? If someone doesn't use the words to hit a Ruby or to hit a blue here, it doesn't mean they're outside of the box in our Gema. If they are the standing of the heat is that there's only one law that they worship alone, then that's fine, even if they give no labeled with these labels
were invented later on to make it easier to understand. So we shouldn't get too caught up with the labels. The concept and the belief is more important than the labels that we attach to it.
then the beliefs about Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Mr Potter he says Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the chosen servant, he selected Prophet and the messenger which he is pleased with. He is the watermill ambia, the first of the righteous the leader of the righteous and Master of the of the messengers, and the Beloved of the Lord of the worlds.
Anyone who claims Prophethood, or any claim of property up to him is false and lies and whoever, and he was sent to all of God and all of humanity with the truth and guidance and with light and illumination. So our beliefs regarding the Prophet sallahu wa sallam, he was chosen. He was the greatest of humanity, the best of prophets, the best of people. He was sent to all human beings at all the jinn and anyone who claims property out to him
Think that Joe is a liar. And we don't even entertain it. If someone claims property, we don't even entertain, they're automatically the job, you're automatically a liar. And to even consider their claim is Cofer. And so therefore, anyone who follows a false prophet, even if they claim to be Muslims, they are covered by each of our of our culture in our Jamaat, right? I don't know this is not politically correct to say no, you're we have certain movements out there again, like the audience, who anyone who says they are copy or they push this idea that that person is an extremist. This is not extremism, this is Islam. Islam is to believe that Mohammed Salah ism is the final
messenger. So by default, if you don't believe that you are GFI, whatever you call yourself, right. So this is from the fundamentals from the foundation, or what is known of this religion by necessity, that Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Yusuf is the final messenger, right our beliefs regarding the Quran. The Quran is the word of Allah. It originally came from him without ascribing any modality to his speech. He sent it down to his messenger, the Revelation the believers accept all of it as true. There certainly is the word of Allah. In reality, it is uncreated, unlike the speech of creation, whoever hears it and imagine that it is human speech has committed unbelief.
Allah has blamed him, censored him and treated him with fire, where in Allah says, that I will burn him in the fire Allah Trojans fire those who say that it is only the speech of a human being, we know with certainty, it is a speech of creator of the creator of humanity, it does not resemble the speech of humanity. Whoever described Allah with the same qualities that human beings has committed unbeliev whoever grasped this will be careful and restrained from the likes of what was said by the unbelievers. He knows the attributes of Allah, unlike those of human being so this entire section came about because of the mortality law, and they claim that the Quran is created, and a whole Jenna
wajima say, No, the Quran is khazamula How is it Calum Allah, we do not understand the house we do not go into the house. We say that Allah us, the Quran is the speech of Allah. And we don't go into how did Allah speak, right, but it's a way that suits His Majesty and in a way that does not resemble the creation, right? But it is kalangala it is the speech of Allah. The next section, looking at Allah, the vision of the people of Paradise is a reality without encompassing all of Allah without trying to understand how, as expressed in the book of Allah faces on the day will be radiant or looking at the Lord. his explanation of this is Allah has intended and as Allah knows,
everything has come from the authentic narrations of the prophecies of his as he said, and it means what he intended, we did not go into interpreting it with our own opinions or trying to imagine it, though, and imagining how would our imaginations for none is safe in his religion, except the one who surrenders themselves to Allah and His Messenger, and really relinquishes the knowledge of what is ambiguous to the one knows it. So
Allah says in the Quran, that on that day, the believers will be looking at the Lord, and they will be happy. And the Hadith stage therefore wants the greatest rewards in Paradise is that the believers will see Allah and so we believe in this without trying to imagine it. We believe in this without going into how we don't try to interpret it. We don't give it a different meaning. We believe in what Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have stated about this, and we don't go into how we don't try to imagine a world or we don't try to imagine the day we just leave it. On that day, we will fall self experience it may Allah make it a reality for all of us.
The next chapter speaking about the religion of knowledge, the foundation of one's Islam is not firm, unless it is based upon submission and surrender to Allah. whoever wishes to know what is forbidden, and is not satisfied with surrender. His understanding will be veiled from toe heed, and his understanding will be veiled from clear to heat and proper knowledge and clear EMA. And he will stray between belief and unbelief, testifying and denying acceptance and rejection, he will remain compulsive, disagreeable and doubtful he will not be a true believer, no establish denial. So basically, the author is saying that we must accept what is in the Quran and Sunnah. And we must
submit without trying to understand if anyone who tries too hard to understand things that are beyond human understanding, like how Allah is and how Paradise is and how he is how God works, this person will always be in a state of doubt his mind will continuously be fluctuating between doubt and belief, because he is trying to understand what is beyond the human ability to comprehend. And so our our duty when it comes to aqeedah is not to try and comprehend everything but to submit what Allah has revealed.
In this specific field, right? So, we use our understanding, to arrive at the conclusion that Islam is the truth. We use our understanding for working out fixed issues, we use our understanding for deriving lessons from history. We do not use our understanding for working out our aqeedah oh aqeedah is to submit to what Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam have stated in the Quran and the Sunnah without going into the house or trying to imagine it. Whoever does not protect it protect himself from negating the attributes of Allah or lightning Allah to something has strayed and has not correctly understood the greatness of Allah Subhana Allah Allah.
For Allah is described with the attributes of one is qualified with uniqueness, he does not have the characteristics of his creation, Allah is beyond limits and support limbs or tools, he is not contained by six directions, like the rest of creation, so alive beyond our understanding in this matter to try and limit Allah based on human understandings of how this world works and how
time works and how space works. This is, again, trying to understand what is beyond human comprehension. At the end of the day, we simply believe in what is the Quran and Sunnah without trying to go too deep into it, going through deep into it opens the doors to deviation. You either end up rejecting some of Allah's names or attributes like the Mata Zilla did, or you end up falling into anthropomorphism as the Jews that right and the Christians as well.
So enemy Raj, of the prophets lies in wide awake that's the next chapter. The Mirage to Heaven is a reality the profits is almost taken by night and ascended in person wide awake to the heavens, and then to wherever Allah will for him to go. Allah honored him.
As He willed me reveal to him what he revealed. His heart was not mistaken in what he did. So Allah bless him and gravity and peace in the year object in this world. So the belief or hopes in our world, Gemma is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam went for them we are Raj in person while awake, right? He was not a dream. He was not a vision. It was a real physical journey through time and space to a paradise and how can we ever ever allow ever beyond that Allah want you to take him?
next few chapters very easy, I'll just go through them quickly. The whole the fountain,
that the prophets why some will receive in general is a reality that Allah will be started upon the prophets are some as an honor for his nation. Right so from the our beliefs is that the Prophet slicin will honor this oma with the with the Holy Ghost in Paradise and also flowing for me on the day of judgment as well. The Shahada intercession
that he deferred for them until the day of resurrection is also true as related in the narrations. So the intercession of the Prophet sallahu wa salam first for all of mankind for the day of judgment to begin, and then after that, for the believers to enter Paradise, this is also something real that we believe in. Again, we discussed this earlier. And it's very straightforward, we don't need to revise it that much.
The covenant that Allah took from Adam and his progeny is real. Allah has always known the number that will enter Paradise and the number that will enter hell, a single allocation, this number will not increase or decrease Likewise, the actions of people as he knows amongst them what they will do. So we went into this in the lecture on Qatar was the most difficult part of the book that I tried to understand Qatar. And the position of ultra novel Gemma is that corder really is beyond human understanding.
There are many different ways of looking at it and trying to explain it. And this is really one of the key areas really ushered in the humbleness clash. And as I mentioned, my position is to simply follow the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, in which he said that we should avoid thinking too much and talking too much about this topic, and we should just believe in it, guess what? Our pseudo law. So the law is some sort of order. And so that's what I follow. I don't go too deep into the prophets are somehow taught us this. Allah knows everything. He knows how many people are going to paradise. He knows how many people are going to hell, he knows the deeds they go into,
do. None of this is ever going to change.
does this affect free? Well, no, it does not. We are still doing our deeds. We are still living our lives, we are still working towards paradise or hell, based on our deeds. Allah just knows it. Right? Allah knows it controls all of creation. But at the same time, he has given us free will. And it is our choice to choose the path of paradise where he just knows who's going to choose which one right
So based on that quarter,
everyone will be facilitated for that which they were created for. These are judged based on the end of one slide those who are blessed, a blessed by the decree of Allah, those who attempt at them by the decree of Allah, the basis of God is that it is secret of Allah in His creation, it has not been shown to any angels,
near him not to a property set, trying to go too deep and investigating too deeply into it is a cause of loss, a cause of deprivation and a cause of transgression. This is the key paragraph. This is my entire position towards Qatar is based on this paragraph, right? It's Allah secret.
No Prophet, or Angel was given access to it. We shouldn't go too deep into it either. Why? It's simply something humans cannot understand. The finite mind cannot understand infinite knowledge, and how it works and how it relates to everything around it. It's just it's a point where the human mind just can't go beyond that.
Trying to understand it, on the in the short term is going to give you a headache, in the long term, is it going to lead to the job or career or the career schools of thought, and we don't want to fall into either of these extremes. So take a caution with regard to investigating, thinking and assuming regarding this topic, and was was regarding this topic, for Allah has hidden the knowledge of God from his creation, and has prohibited him from seeking it, as said by Allah in his book, you will not be questioned about what he does, but they will be questioned or what they do you ever ask why he did something has rejected the judgment of the book, whoever rejected judgment of the book is
amongst the unbelievers.
So when people think too deeply about quarter, they eventually fall into asking but why don't laputa boys allergies put us in paradise? Oh, hell, and the response to how he is that Allah said, you will be answerable to Allah, Allah is not answerable to you. So we have no right to question Allah. We have no right to question Allah. So just avoid this topic altogether. Right, the topic of Qatar is what I call the fitna topic in Al Qaeda, it's a topic that people like to think about, they like to dive into. And when they do that, it leads them astray. This is really where submission is required. Because this is something that's simply beyond human ability to understand.
This is the summary of what is needed by those who have enlightened hearts amongst the Odia of Allah. And
it is the degree
of those rooted in knowledge. Right. So this is referencing so the AMA, talking about those who don't chase after them, the shabby they focus only on what is mock up, right those who are rooted in knowledge for knowledge in the creation is of two types that which is accessible and that which is inaccessible. To deny accessible knowledge is unbeliev. To claim to know the inaccessible is unbelief. Faith is only a form of accepting accessible knowledge and abandoning the pursuit of in accessible knowledge. So
there are things we can know and the things we can't know aqeedah Islam is to believe in what we cannot do believe in what is stated in the Quran and Sunnah. And not to chase after what we can't know what is beyond that, right? So we don't go into anything that is beyond that, when it comes to archaea.
related to cover the preserved tablet in the pen and again, we discussed all of this in the lecture on this topic.
I believe in the preserved tablet dependent everything inscribed on it, if all creation gathered against something Allah had decreed on it to be, then they tried to make it not exist, they will have no power to do so. If all of them gathered against something Allah had not acted on it to be in he tried to bring it into existence, they would have no power to do so. The pen has dried for what will be until the Day of Resurrection. Whatever a person has missed, he would never have received whatever he received, he would never have missed. The servant must know that the knowledge of Allah of all that exists in his creation has already proceeded in measured all with precise measurement
judgment and finality. There is nothing to reduce it or amended or remove it or change it or diverted or decrease it or accurate. All of that is amongst the beliefs of fate, the fundamentals of Akita and the recognition of the oneness of Allah Subhana with the other as he says in the book, he created all things and measure them with precise measurement.
And Allah says the command of Allah is a decisive command. So we're on to the one whose heart becomes ill regarding risk. He has traversed the part of delusion investigating the unseen its secrets or hidden aspects, he ends up as a sinful liar due to what he said.
So, this is
the explanation of the law of force based on several Hadees
verses of the Quran we already covered this, but this again,
our risk, our sustenance is already decreed for our entire lifespan.
And so, as believers we are told not to stress or worry about risk. Rather we do our work I will ever receive at the end quarter rewarded what Allah has written for us, we were never going to receive anything more than that or anything less than that. Right? This does not resolve or absolve us of the
obligation to work, but rather the obligation to work remains upon us. But it's work without stress or worry about you know, am I going to earn enough because you know, your your risk is determined by Allah you're only going to get whatever Allah has written and we went into details about this during the appropriate lecture.
And again, that's all related to cover. The most difficult subject it Akira
we believe in what has been rated about it in the Quran and Sunnah without going into too much details Okay. The next section is easy. I get very happy after the quarter section, there is always followed up with the easy section
the throne and the currency are realities. A lot is a bend a lot is independent of the throne and what is beneath it, he encompasses all things and is above it, and what he has created in a capable of accomplishing him. So we covered this in the chapter on Akita. Allah took Ibrahim Ali Salam as a close friend and he spoke directly to Musa alayhis salam, faithfully truthfully, when we say this and we believe in this faithfully truthfully and in surrender to Allah. So again, we've mentioned then what does Allah deny these things and that's why he mentioned him in the books of Akita.
We believe in angels, prophets, books, and they will reveal to the messengers we testify the day we all upon clear church we went through this part of our six pillars of EMA is believing angels, believe in messengers and believe in the revealed messages and we went into the details of that the angel tutorial the angel myka, yield, the messengers, no, Adam and so in other words, the messenger with an A, B, no, and Ibrahim and Moosa and Isa alayhi wa sallam and the revelation sent to them like this aboard at the interior of the Torah. We believe in all of this.
Those who pray towards the Qibla are Muslims and believers as long as they remain upon what the prophets lie some has recognized and confirmed as conformance to what he has said and reported. We do not speak about Allah with our knowledge, nor do we argue about the religion of Allah. We do not dispute over the Quran, we testify that is the speech of the lord of the words, sent down to the angel Jabra, who taught it to the master of the messengers, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the speech of Allah, in no way equal to the speech of creation. We do not claim it to be his creation, nor do we oppose the United Community of Muslims. So going back into what we believe about
the Quran, again, that's repeated because that was the issue of his time, between our house in our Jamaat and the mortar Zilla.
And also in this section is the importance of
treating Muslims in general, as part of altering our Jamaat, as long as nothing comes out of the mouth of the actions to indicate otherwise, our default relationship with any Muslim we meet, especially for the first time is that this person is an orthodox Sunni Muslim, until and unless they reject Hadees, or
speak bad about the Sahaba or claim to follow a false prophet, or any of these things, then we put them in another box. But
the general assumption the who's near God, when you meet someone for the first time, is that they are part of our culture in our Jamaat, we do not excuse excommunicate or make the fear of anyone who prays towards Makkah because of a sin, as long as he does not claim that it is held out. Nor do we say since do not harm fate, or those who committed so we mentioned this is a reputation of both the courage and the moral, right, those who say that since take a person out of the fold of Islam, and those who say that sense don't matter, we say no, someone who commits a sin is still a Muslim, but that sin has a negative impact on the EMA and on the spirituality, right.
You will be hope that Allah will forgive those who are righteous amongst the believers and admit me to Paradise by His mercy, but we cannot guarantee that for them, and we cannot testify that they are injured. We seek forgiveness for the sinful we fear for them, but we did not despair over them. guarantee or despair about anything. Jana removes one from the religion.
of Islam, the way of truth is regarding
the way of truth is between that for those who pray towards Makkah, no server is expelled from this religion
except by this evolving that which made him enter into it. So
we do not make the fear of people based on their sense. Soni, if they reject something that's fundamental about Islam and known of Islam by necessity, that that fear becomes allowed that to, obviously to due process, not just from any individual, right?
Also that part of the appeal of our Jamaat is that we don't say about anyone unless the names are mentioned explicitly in the Quran, so now they are in paradise or hell. Rather, we hope for paradise. And we pray for paradise and we seek forgiveness when it comes to the believers. And for those who died upon apparent cover, then we fear for them to Hellfire, but we don't say it. We don't say that person is in the hellfire. Because only Allah knows if that person will be retested on a day of judgment or their person had an excuse, or whatever the case may be only Allah knows. But we believe parents or believers go to Paradise and disbelievers go to hell. But we are not allowed to
save for an individual. We no longer take a person's name and say this person is guaranteed paradise, this person is guaranteed hell because
only a level set and only Allah is allowed to make that judgment. Right.
Believe consists of affirming what they've done and accepting with the soul. So we said this is where we differ with Howie we say includes the actions of the body as well. All that is known of the prophecies
regarding the laws and teaching of Islam are true. So whatever comes from the Sunnah, regarding the teachings of Islam, we believe in it.
Nima is one and the people are created equal by default of virtue of some over others due to the fear of Allah is due to the fear of Allah and righteousness and opposing their naps and following the rules. This is another point where we differ with regard to how he he said everyone's equal in the demand and the position of the other schools of Aikido is that the mark increases in decreases right. So, this is
your two fundamental points, we have the aqeedah and humbly clash, then in the Hanafi aqeedah actions are not part of demand in humbly aqeedah actions are part of in hanabi aqeedah demand does not increase in decrease. In humble the Akita e man does increase and decrease. Now these are very secondary issues. They don't really affect how one practices the religion at all, is really very, very theoretical. So it's only people studying Akita that's going to come across this otherwise it doesn't affect the day to day life of the believers. And that's why we say both positions fall within our friend our charges. It's not like 100 feet position is deviant, or the humble position is
deviant. But nonetheless, I believe that the humbly attitude towards a pillar is the strongest one. But this is also within the framework of acceptable differences of opinion.
all believers are the only of our of Allah and the noblest. Amongst them are those who are obedient and obey the Koran. Eman is Imani Allah, His angels, his books, his messengers, the day of judgment and coddle both the good and bad, the weak and the sweet and part of it are from Allah. We believe in all of that there is no distinction between any of his messengers we accept all of them as true in what they brought. As the six pillars of email I mentioned, those who commit major sins amongst the nation of Humberto Allahu alayhi wa sallam, maybe in Hellfire, but not forever, if they die upon tauheed even if they did not repent, after they meet Allah, knowing what email they are subject to
his word and judgment, if he wills He will forgive them and pardon him by his Rama. As Allah says he forgives anything that is lessened in Shell for whom he was, if he will, He will punish them in the house prior to his justice. After that he would bring them out to the Hellfire by His mercy. And from the intersection of those will intercede amongst obedient, then raised them to paradise. This is because Allah is the ally of those who recognize Him and He will not deal with them in the two abodes as if they were the people who rejected Him who fail to follow His guidance. It's not his protection, Allah, Allah God, you know, sometimes people keep us firmly upon Islam until we meet
you. So, major sense did not expel a person from Islam. Someone who commits a major sin and does not repent from it. On the Day of Judgment if Allah wants he will forgive them, if Allah wants to punish them temporarily, but eventually they will also enter Jannah so as long as a person was a person of Toki, they truly believed Illa Illa Allah Muhammad Rasulullah whether the person was a thief, or a murderer, or fornicator, or homosexual, or
alcoholic, or any of these major sets, as long as they firmly believed, and he did not regard these things as hollow out that's the point they firmly believe what Allah revealed to his message.
Just a log in your cell phone, and they did not regard the sins as Hello, there is a chance that Allah will forgive them, or Allah May punish them. And then after the purified traditions, remove them and put them in Paradise, but we do not make the fear of people based on their sins. This is very important. Because again, this is the two extremes in our time. The adults, for example, the most common example nowadays is homosexuality. We have the liberals who are saying it's permissible, this is copper. And then we have the other extreme where if someone has this desire, people are making the fear of it. This is also wrong. Rather,
having a sinful desire or even acting on it does not take a person out of the fold of Islam. So someone who practices this evil, but knows it to be Haram is still a Sunni Muslim. And someone who does not practice this evil of homosexuality, but believes it to be Hello, y'all. This is gopher, nothing the individual is a coffee. But this specific belief is Cofer. Right. So the point here is that the sin does not expel a person from human, one's belief about it, rejecting that it's a sin, believing that it's valid, going against the HTML of the oma throughout the centuries throughout the world for over 1400 years on this issue. This is Cofer. So this is a very important point of
We perform Salah behind every mob who prays towards Makkah, whether righteous or weaker, as well as a funeral Sara overdose who have died. So as long as a person died as a Muslim, we pray funeral Salah for them, whether they wake people of sin or people of piety. Likewise, when we go to the masjid, we pray Salah behind every image that believes in Mamadou Rasulullah. Regardless of the same regardless of the bid or regardless of of the attorney, whoever's leading Salah we pray behind him and the Salah is valid. We do not declare any of them to be for paradise or hell. We do not accuse people of sugar copper, the people who pray towards Makkah are not made the fear of or accused of
hypocrisy, as long as they do not show any of that we leave the inner secrets of law. Nowadays, we have this thing online that when people see someone's sins or wrong opinions, they say that person is a Madonna fake or that person is a copier. This is not allowed.
This is not allowed. We don't know people's inner secrets. People could be genuinely wrong on an issue but be sincere It was a lot of anger, we're not allowed to call someone in
the park is a matter of the heart. Nobody knows what's in the heart with the other person. If someone is mentioning clear statements of
the orlova could make the fear of that person. But we we don't have to get involved in that. Right.
We do not raise the sword against anyone from the Nation of Muhammad Ali Islam except those which is necessary to fight we went to war the people who allow to fight
we did not rebel against the leaders are those in charge, even if they are tyrannical, we do not subjugate against them or stop obeying them. We view obedience to them as obedience to Allah and obligation as long as they do not order us to obey Allah
make to our for their righteousness and they safety.
So we discuss all the nuances related to that in that specific module, how certain groups they have taken that to an extreme and how certain rules they are abusing this point of Aikido.
They are checks and balances and limits to how far we apply this. But nonetheless, for the most part, there is more harm than benefit in rebelling against the rulers. So even when the ruler is a tyrant, our religion tells us to be patient and to make to Allah rather than to take up arms because that normally leads to
more harm than good. Right? As we've seen in many parts of the world, may Allah lift the tyranny that is oppressing the oma and replace it with righteous leadership. I mean,
we follow the Sunnah and the majority of the community committed to the sinner and
we avoid strange opinions and the difference differences of opinion and sectarianism. So we stick to the Jamaat, we stick to the majority of Muslims, right Sunni Islam.
All the different mother who can make up Sunni Islam, we stick to that. We don't get into sectarianism. We don't join small cults in groups and new ideas. We don't go into strange differences of opinion.
We avoid all of that we stick to what the majority of Muslims across the globe believe, which is Sunni Islam, made up of the various modes of Akita. And
here we don't go beyond that. We love the people of justice, and trustworthiness for love of the people of justice is part of the perfection of fate. We hate the people of injustice and tyranny. So just because we don't rebel against hydrance This doesn't mean we love tyranny. We hate tyrants. We hate tyranny. We love justice. The only reason
Part of al Qaeda is not to rebel is because rebellion leads to the tyrants unleashing the full force upon innocent people. So instead of rebelling, we make to our to Allah to lift the tyranny and replace it or righteous leadership.
The next point
massage on socks when traveling for at home.
We say Allah knows best regarding matters of knowledge which are unclear, we wipe overall socks in Voodoo for the traveler and resident as has come from the narrations, Hajj, and Jihad up on the way of Allah will continue under the authority of the Muslim leaders, the righteous and evil amongst them until the day of judgment, nothing would invalidate or stop them. So these are points of fact that I mentioned here, because they distinguish at that time between our house in our Jamaat and the TV sets. So at that time, certain deviant sex did not believe in muscle on the socks, and certain deviant sex did not believe in hydro jihad. So these points are mentioned yet even though they're
technically matters of faith.
We believe in the angels who are writing our deeds, that Allah has appointed them over the ones that allows appoint overseas guardians, we believe in the angel of death that uses the souls of photos in this world. Again, these are points that certain groups at that time had rejected, so he mentions them.
We believe in the punishment of the grave for those who deserve it and questioning of the grave by munkar and appealed to angels about who is once Lord, what is once religion and Prophet, who is once Prophet, as has been rated from the Prophet Islamism and the companions. The grave is either a paradise is a garden from the paradise or a garden of Paradise or it is a part of hellfire. Again, all of this comes from the codices and those sects that rejected these rejected points of Akira, we believe in it because it is mentioned inauthentic producers.
Believe in the last day, we believe
in the resurrection and the recompense of actions on the Day of Judgment, the presentation of the deeds, the reckoning, reading from the book of deeds, reward and punishment, to be rage, overwhelmed by and escape, paradise and hell are both creations that never end or perish, for Allah has created paradise and hell before the creation, rest of creation. Then he created people for them, whoever he wants to enter Paradise will usually it will do so to to his Rama, whoever he will enter help why because of His justice, everyone acts in accordance to what was decreed for him becoming that which was created for Good and Evil both have been decreed for the seven.
The ability required for an action is from divine facilitation, which cannot be ascribed to the creation, or to a created being, along with the action itself. For the ability from the view of hell capacity, capable capability and sound means it is before the action itself and what is related this, just as it was, Allah said, no soul is responsible except for what is within his capability to action, the servants of creations of Allah. The actions of the servants are creations of Allah, and are owned by the servants. Allah does not hold them responsible, unless they are capable and they're not capable except for what they are responsible. This is the explanation that there is no movement
of it except by Allah, we say. There is no prayer of anyone or transformation of anyone or movement of anyone in disobedience to Allah except that Allah has given him the ability to do so that has the power to perform obedience to Allah or to be full form upon it except with Allah allowing him to do so. All things occur by the will of Allah, his knowledge, his decree, and His
providence. His world overpowers all other worlds, his decree overpowers all other decrees, he does not he does whatever he wills and he is never adjust, he will not be questioned or what he does, but they will be questioned. So we discussed this in the lecture on quarter
that Allah created our actions, and we cannot do anything unless Allah wills it. I cannot utter a word unless Allah. If Allah does not want me to say something, I can want to do it. I can physically, maybe have the capabilities to do it. But I will not be able to at that moment because there's no one way to do it. As we mentioned with the story of Sarah, and he has Salah when the king tried to grab her and Allah causes him to be paralyzed, that is Allah showing us how we can stop us from doing an action because he's the one creating our actions.
Allah answers our do us
in the doula of the living and the acts of charity, there are benefits for the dead Allah responds to do to us and fulfills the need to control all things and nothing has any control over him. None can be independent of Allah. Even
For the blink of an eye, whoever considered himself independent of a lot, even for the blink of an eye has committed Cooper and become from the people of jahannam. He then he becomes angered and becomes pleased yet not like anyone else besides Him. So it's two separate points here. The first is that we are all dependent on a lot. Always, no matter how wealthy you are, whatever it is, we are dependent on Allah every second of every day, there's not even a blink of an eye that we can ever become independent of us will have less power and who has the knowledge? Anyone who believes that they are, this is Cofer. Right? Allah becomes angrier, Allah becomes pleased, but not like how
humans do it. So Allah has the attributes of anger and pleasure in ways that suit his majesty. Not in a human in a human way, can be at the end of the book. Now the last few pages are very easy. That's the end of the difficult stuff. Let's quickly go to the easy stuff and wrap up. And we are done for this year with this course in Sharla.
Please, for the companions, we love the Sahaba of the Prophet salatu salam, we do not exaggerate in our love for any of them, nor do we own any of them. We hate those who hate them, or who mentioned them without good for we did not mention them except word goodness. Love for them is part of the religion, Eman and spiritual excellence and hatred for them is unbelievable. cracy and as said, We affirm the philosophers after the Prophet Louisa first went to Abu Bakar then Omar, then oh smart can Ollie already low on how much more India the whole of our Rashid in the 10 were named by the proper slicer having it as being given the promised paradise. We testify that they are in paradise
due to what the proper slice up said and everything he says is true. They are Abubakar Omar Osman Ali has to be inside Sabine Abdul Rahman even of Aveda being gentle or yellow at home.
Whoever speaks well about the companions of the Prophet SAW yourself and his wife and his children, their person is free from hypocrisy
to Allah automa of the of the setup, who preceded us and those after them amongst the successes, the people of virtue, tradition, understanding inside they are not mentioned except to righteousness and are in a good way, whoever mentioned them in an evil way even a part different from their part. So part of our Kedah is to love and respect the Sahaba and the only other what is good about them. And the same for the llama and the only any righteous person that has ever loved. We only speak what is good up here. Even if they made mistakes, we hide their mistakes. Or we if we need to discuss the mistake for the sake of learning a lesson from it. We still do it in a respectful way. We do not do
it in a way where we disparage them or we say anything bad about them or be insulting. Rather, we have 100% other for all of the righteous believers who have come before us, even for those who are alive amongst us.
We do not prefer any of the Olia of this nation over the prophets Allah Masada you see that a single prophet is better than all of the Olia for together. But we believe in the miracles of the Olia as long as they have been authentically narrated from trustworthy narrator so we mentioned this last week. Olia is a reality,
every generation, they are people who Allah loves.
We don't know who they are. In general, they are humble, simple people who keep to themselves or just live a normal life in the communities. But because of the pure hearts and the secret good deeds, they have a close connection behind our data. A law can allow government to occur to anyone.
We mentioned the two extremes, those of the of the modern groups that reject keramat, and those of the extreme groups that
made up many stories about karate, and so we don't go to the extreme. We believe karate are real. They happen to people of the past happened to the Sahaba. It happened to many of the great scholars of Islam. It happens today, all over the globe.
But we don't believe in specific stories of karate, unless they have been authentically narrated. Right. So we look at the chain of narrators, when it comes to the stories.
Believe in the signs of the hour. We believe in the signs of the Day of Judgment, like the appearance of the jungle, the descent of Isa Li salaam, salaam, Mary, and we believe in the rising of the sun from the west and the emergence of the beast from the earth. So we did this entire video on the science of the day of judgment
that we believe in all the signs of the day of judgment that have been authentically integrated into so now, both the major and the minor science it's just a few major science as listed here. But the point is
We believe in all of it not just the ones listed here pining.
We do not believe in short sales unfortunate other so be clear this up anyone who claims knowledge of the unseen discover we ever claimed anything against the Quran and the Sunnah and the consensus of the Muslims we cannot believe them. Right any claim that goes against the currency now each map we rejected, I that's outside of Altoona. wajima
really got unity as true and as right as that which is good. I regard sectarianism as deviation and a punishment from Allah, to religion of Allah is one on Earth and in heaven. It is the religion of Islam. Allah says in in the dino in Deloitte, Islam, their way of life, according to Allah is Islam. Allah said we're ready to lock on Islam Medina, I am pleased with Islam as a religion. It is the middle part.
It is the middle part between extremism and political meant between resembling Allah's attributes and negating them, between jabariya and cordrea.
Between fatalism and unrestricted free will, and between feeling guaranteed of Paradise, or disappearing or paradise, Islam is, we mentioned always in the middle, it is the middle part, the moderate part, the straight part.
And so he completes the book, this is our religion, this is what we what we take as our aqeedah inwardly and outwardly, which is own before Allah, all those who oppose what we have mentioned and clarified. We ask Allah to keep us firm on faith, seal our life ready and to protect us from our desire, sectarianism and the doctrines of, of the day of de deviant sex, like the Musha Biba Mota Zilla, Jamia podria, and Julia, and any other group that has opposed the Gema and go under strict, we are innocent of them. For the to us those who are misguided and Allah alone is our protector guide. And all successes from Allah, Allah knows best. With that.
our revision of arquitecto Javier, that was the entire ocular to to where we are, we just read out and went over some of the points. I hope you found this cost beneficial. And if you did, please let others know about it so others can benefit too. I just want to conclude with some closing remarks on this topic of Akita.
When I first started this program, I wasn't going to do aqeedah as one of my courses. I feel like there's there's too much emphasis on aqeedah
in our communities.
But then I realized that that's not really true. There's actually two extremes again, it's always extremes. On one extreme, there are certain movements in our community that see no importance to appear at all. So they don't teach Akita like at all is like no, like, if you had to ask a person in the moment What does Muslims believe about God or about angels about the author, I can't really tell you because no one's teaching this thing in their community.
And I noticed that people who come from those backgrounds,
it's more easier for them to be led astray by liberals and feminists and modernists because they don't have that foundation of Akita to protect them from those wrong ideas. And really interacting with that segment of community made me realize the importance of Akita. On the other extreme, we have people who take the secondary issue of Akita and they divide the house in our Jamaat over it and so, they will stop talking to someone, boycott someone,
completely cut off ties with someone, because the person follows Hanafi aqeedah instead of humbly appear or because their person comes from the Ashanti background and not the SME background or vice versa.
And this attitude, could people have Akita itself? So the balance middle part is that we learned the Akita ultra was recognizing that there are some differences of opinion in secondary issues amongst a host in our Jama.
It's important to know our key there should be to protect ourselves from outside elements.
outside elements being things like the liberals, the modernists, the feminists, Western philosophy,
no communist and capitalist ideas,
materialistic ideas, anything that comes from outside, we are protected from that, if we know our aqeedah
at the same time,
we must have a balanced approach towards the differences that exist within our culture in our drama in the differences between the ushers and about to release and the humbleness
This is something that goes back to the fourth century of Islam
and the great scholars of Islam. They fall into all of these camps. If you study the life of the great Olia and the great wall art throughout history, some actually some imouto really somewhere humbly. They all were great scholars, or whatever. Because I also know what Yama encompasses all of these groups. And it's only in the past three centuries, there's been a division between the Ashanti the motto religion on one side and the humblest on the other side. And this division, particularly in the 90s onwards, the past 30 years, has become really serious and it's really dividing the oma and causing a lot of problems. It's pushing people away from Islam. It's dividing a house in our
Gema it's turning people against the science of Akita itself, and it's causing people to fight over things which are not really relevant to their lives.
So my final advice,
learn your Akita. Study Akita, be grounded in Akita, revise this book, at least once a year, teach Akita to your children.
But don't go to extremes inocula don't become the extremist group that thinks that only 1% of the oma is saved and the other 99% are going to help and don't become the other extremist groups. I think everything's fine, everybody's fine, everyone's going to paradise. both extremes should be avoided.
Learn the parameters of what is our Gema to various mud hubs and make up our Java. I love to love and respect all of you. What is outside of that,
you know, we will treat them with goodness in this world and leave their fate to Allah. At the end of the day, someone having even devia Kedah does not always take them out of the fold of Islam. Whether they are Mota Zilla, or Hawaii, or even Shia, for the most part, they are still Muslim, Allah can still forgive them. And we have to keep that in mind and still have some level of of audible and good management interacting with them and calling them towards the center and still treat them with basic human decency. But same time, it doesn't mean we accept what they believe is right.
So this really is the key point I tried to drive home and I know a lot of people just contract their head around it is the idea of tolerance to differences of opinion, within a half an hour Gemma and Nikita can just learn that we can go back to teaching the science in the way it was taught in early the early years. And to accepting the differences exists in this field and to respecting the alama across all the different schools have total osuna wajima in this field. So don't let this be the end. Don't let this short course be all you ever learn about chiriaco further dive deeper into it, learn other teachers,
learn other books, learn different, you know, the history of Akita learning the biographies of great scholars of Akita.
And one last point is that our aqeedah
It shouldn't be just theory, and just something that we use for fighting with others, our Keda should a protect us from wrong beliefs. And be it should connect us with Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us righteous. If our aqeedah is not making us good Muslims, if it's not making us pray five times a day and worship Allah and love Allah and
obey Allah, then there's something wrong in how we are studying and teaching.
And so this is really the foundation of what we should be doing. It's not about,
you know, what does that group believe or what the other group believes. It's about believing in what we need to believe about, about the six pillars of Eman And then practicing on that. Practicing on that, and living according to that, and being from the people who don't just believe in Allah, but worship as well. Even the people who don't just believe in Mohammed or Rasulullah, but follow Muhammad Rasulullah slowly with being with the people who don't just believe in angels, but live their lives in a way that they know the angels are it down the ditch and they're going to have to deal with the angel of death and all of that, being from the people who don't just believe in
resurrection, paradise and help but prepare their entire lives for the resurrection and for the judgment and for paradise. To be from the people who don't just believe in God, but who live a life
that is acceptance of God and is based on a firm belief in God. These beliefs are not meant to be theoretical gimmick to transform us. They meant to shape us they meant to make us into better people. And it's only when Akita is taught and studied from that manner and from that perspective, that we truly get the benefits of it. So we can
of this course and this year by asking Allah to accept our efforts to forgive our mistakes, to keep us firm upon the straight path to grant us wisdom and understanding and balance and moderation and to protect us from all extremes and all forms of deviation, all forms of going astray, have to protect our families, and to make us from the people of China and to protect us from going anywhere near to help by walking Tawana hamdulillah Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
