00:00:10--> 00:00:10

I'm Joe

00:00:12--> 00:00:17

jela, we'll continue our discussion of this verse

00:00:21--> 00:00:28

a verse that as we said, many scholars emphasize this as being the the epitome of sort of defects.

00:00:30--> 00:00:32

And last time, we discussed something,

00:00:34--> 00:00:38

the issue of asking from other than that,

00:00:39--> 00:00:45

and we divided it into what is permissible and what is not permissible. And we spoke about

00:00:46--> 00:00:53

even among those things, which cannot be considered sugar or completely impermissible,

00:00:54--> 00:01:03

even when it comes to these kind of matters, that if the person can avoid asking others, this would be best for him as the process

00:01:04--> 00:01:32

goes up, because this is a kind of modification and protection for to him, if you can avoid the minor defects, you know, the small, what you might think of insignificant things that might affect your trade, if you get to the point that you can remove those inshallah, then it becomes much easier to obviously, remove the greater if you don't ask anybody for anything, then

00:01:34--> 00:01:43

the possibility of you asking in such a way, which is shut up, or completely unacceptable matter, obviously, will be removed from your heart.

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

But also, when we discuss topics like that,

00:01:48--> 00:01:57

it should remind us about the depths, and the magnitude of what Hayden Ubud really are.

00:01:58--> 00:02:08

Now, Hamdulillah, and when we think of ourselves as Muslims, as servants of Allah subhanho, wa Taala, you know, as I've been up,

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

and being believers,

00:02:12--> 00:02:21

we should always remind ourselves of what all that entails, you know, sometimes maybe we take it very lightly,

00:02:22--> 00:02:36

we just think of ourselves as Muslims, people worshipping data, but in reality, where there might be some deficiencies, in both our understanding of the hate and also in our practice of,

00:02:39--> 00:02:42

as I mentioned before, have delay anywhere in the realm of Islam.

00:02:43--> 00:02:51

And we are believers in sha Allah, but at the same time, this doesn't mean that there's not a lot of room for improvement.

00:02:53--> 00:03:02

There's a lot of things even about to hate, that we do not understand and we may be perhaps did not apply properly.

00:03:04--> 00:03:09

So, last time, for example, we spoke about those Sahaba who made their beer to the process,

00:03:10--> 00:03:23

not to ask anybody for anything, we said this is a kind of gold, this is a kind of higher level that we should try to achieve, but just having the knowledge of that,

00:03:24--> 00:03:38

having the knowledge of that concept, inshallah will be beneficial for us. And the first step, which is having the knowledge of that concept, and inshallah That in itself, will be inshallah beneficial for us. Because

00:03:39--> 00:03:42

it's may have been a concept that we were completely unaware of.

00:03:44--> 00:03:59

So if it is a concept that we were completely unaware of, and it is something by which we can worship Allah subhanaw taala and which is a kind of available spend with Alan Porter with tohave then we're missing something which can be pleasing to us.

00:04:01--> 00:04:29

What I mean by that is that if we, intentionally Now, when we think about asking someone for something, and we remember it to ourselves, why should I ask someone to do something when I can do it myself? Why should I belittle myself and forget about all this and with Allah and turn to some another human being? Even if we do that just once or twice, then we are at least finally hamdulillah we realize this concept and we've actually applied it in our life.

00:04:31--> 00:04:37

Otherwise, if we didn't even realize the concept, this whole door, this whole aspect of embedded will have been lost.

00:04:39--> 00:04:45

Last time for example, when we spoke about those people who had a vida but they did not have

00:04:47--> 00:04:49

any they had the worship Allah subhanho wa Taala Island.

00:04:51--> 00:04:56

But they did not think about the fact of how they're supposed to seek help and all this

00:04:59--> 00:04:59

and they came to that

00:05:00--> 00:05:09

Conclusion may be out of ignorance maybe out of, you know, incorrect he had and so forth. But because of that, they closed the whole door better to themselves.

00:05:10--> 00:05:35

And inshallah, if they're sincere in their worship, they will get the idea of the worship that they do, but they have lost a very important and very beloved activity, but all of that has been closed. So inshallah simply by having the knowledge it is already in shall open the door to us that we can at least understand what this kind of about it and try shala to apply.

00:05:36--> 00:05:47

Even if we do not apply it to the point that we are completely fulfilling it. As I said, even if we fulfill it partially, that's better than not fulfilling it at all.

00:05:48--> 00:05:57

And if we fulfill it partially with the right intention, inshallah, we will be pleasing Allah subhana wa Tada. And we'll be pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala with an aspect of

00:05:58--> 00:06:02

the central tenets of the central teaching of Islam.

00:06:04--> 00:06:09

And then finally, by knowing about this topic and knowing that this is the goal,

00:06:11--> 00:06:23

because in reality, actually many Muslims are not aware of the fact that this is part of the deen This is an aspect by which you can please Allah subhanaw taala to intentionally not turn to others and ask

00:06:24--> 00:06:45

many Muslims are not even aware, I've spoken on this, I've given this hadith of women outbursts and collections before in other places, and the responses of like, we never even thought about this kind of issue. But now, you know, once you understand the topic, and once you realize that it is a goal that you can achieve or try to achieve.

00:06:47--> 00:06:57

And you realize that this is the way a complete Muslim should be, then at least inshallah in your heart, that can be the intention to try to be that way.

00:06:58--> 00:07:07

If you realize that this is part of the hate, then and your heart and your love, you realize that is part of the hate, at least you will try to

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

try your best to become like.

00:07:11--> 00:07:56

And in this day and age as some brothers after the lecture yesterday brought up all kinds of questions in this day and age with what we call an economic specialization. No everyone is in need of others. And it's very difficult maybe to fulfill this kind of aspect of maybe nowadays, it might be something very difficult. However, if you understand the concept, and you have the Nia, to do it, this is your goal, this is what you would like to be. But you because of many circumstances you're not able to do that ni n itself might be sufficient for you to be rewarded by a list and without, or having that goal. And this is one of the most important aspects of knowledge action. Because

00:07:56--> 00:07:57


00:07:58--> 00:08:00

intention can take you further than

00:08:03--> 00:08:04

tension can take you further than

00:08:06--> 00:08:15

there's many proofs for this. One example from the lifetime of the province of Salem, when someone was prepared to go to jihad is going to go out for jet.

00:08:16--> 00:08:19

And he died before being able to do so.

00:08:20--> 00:08:32

His daughter said to him said to the dead body, I wish you had died a martyr, who had prepared for it and it was his intention. So the prophet SAW Selim said, Thane Allah, but Oh God,

00:08:34--> 00:08:51

Allah pedrini at that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given his reward for him according to the extent of his intention. So intention can go and this is just one example. There's actually many examples from the Sunnah of the process. But intention can go well beyond our actions.

00:08:52--> 00:09:01

So when you learn about what tawheed is supposed to be when you learn about what a VAT is supposed to be, when you learn what Stan is supposed to be.

00:09:02--> 00:09:14

inshallah, that will drive you to have that proper intention and work towards that goal. Obviously, intention. intention is not just something on the tongue or just something that you claim is the heart. If you really intend something that means you're

00:09:15--> 00:09:25

and as I said, maybe there's many obstacles keeping you from it. But that intention itself and shall let me help you be rewarded by Allah subhanho wa Taala for that

00:09:27--> 00:09:45

and when you when you study especially different aspects related to Eman, different aspects of how internally a Muslim is supposed to be. Sometimes you will come across many concepts that unfortunately, nowadays, often we ignore.

00:09:46--> 00:09:51

Not only do we ignore them, but when you read about the concept as a whole.

00:09:53--> 00:10:00

Even if it might be an essential concept, you'll find that if you understand it deeply and properly, you

00:10:00--> 00:10:09

My find it is something at least in your mind, what you say is that this is something very different, something you'll never be able to achieve.

00:10:10--> 00:10:12

But we have to remember always inshallah,

00:10:14--> 00:10:17

that a man is something, it is something dynamic

00:10:18--> 00:10:28

in mind increases and decreases. So sometimes inshallah you will be in a state where you will be experiencing these actions of demand.

00:10:29--> 00:10:34

But unfortunately at other times, maybe the majority of time you may not be experienced.

00:10:35--> 00:10:52

As we said, Hamdulillah, you will be within the realm of Islam and EMA, but you will not be experiencing this. And when we read about these different concepts, sometimes, the only conclusion that you can make, is that all we can really say is that we are striving to be,

00:10:54--> 00:11:06

and we are striving to be servants of Allah, we are simply striving to fulfill this promise that we make to Allah subhanho wa Taala so many times,

00:11:07--> 00:11:11

because this promise that we make, the economic Buddha can sustain

00:11:12--> 00:11:14

is so filled with meanings and concepts,

00:11:16--> 00:11:24

that when we look at ourselves, especially nowadays, I mean, we are, we are living in a time, where far from the generation of folks

00:11:26--> 00:11:33

who are far unfortunately, we are even far from a time in which Muslim children were really brought up in Islam.

00:11:35--> 00:11:46

Now, you can find people from Muslim countries nowadays, even from countries that are very proud to be Muslim countries, maybe even Islamic countries, as they quote

00:11:47--> 00:11:49

me if they know virtually nothing, but it's not

00:11:50--> 00:11:54

that come from that society. But the problem is, the whole world is so different.

00:11:56--> 00:12:01

It's not a problem with Islam. But human beings have gone to such an extreme really in the world today.

00:12:02--> 00:12:04

That these concepts

00:12:05--> 00:12:12

of what it means to be a believer are even for Muslims, even for us Muslims, something for

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

unfortunately, even for us, Muslims is something.

00:12:18--> 00:12:24

And so when we learn about them, we have to realize that there is a lot challenge that we can be, we should be strong.

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

I think I mentioned one time that when the score was talked about economic Stein,

00:12:32--> 00:12:41

the first part Yeah, can I Budo should free you from any disease of Ria, of acting, just for sure, not acting sincerely, for the sake of others.

00:12:43--> 00:12:47

And if you'd like to stay in should free you from disease of Kevin or arrogance.

00:12:48--> 00:12:53

And it because you realize that you have to get help from others, otherwise, you're not able to do.

00:12:55--> 00:13:00

But actually, there's another aspect to it of, at least this is the feeling I get when I read the descriptions and his writings

00:13:03--> 00:13:07

is that when you understand what the economic were doing what he can stain really mean,

00:13:08--> 00:13:14

it will definitely humble you with respect to what you feel about yourself as a Muslim.

00:13:16--> 00:13:28

And if you think that you're some kind of great Muslim, hope, you're shala some of us are struggling. When when you see what it means just in this promise that you are making every day so often.

00:13:29--> 00:13:35

And it can be a truly humbling experience to see what the ultimate say is expected of us.

00:13:36--> 00:13:41

And today, inshallah also is another day in which we're going to discuss a concept,

00:13:42--> 00:13:48

which is once again, an essential concept. deed, it's an obligatory concept.

00:13:50--> 00:13:59

Yet, how much do we grasp of it? And how much do we really put it into practice in our lives? That is the question that everyone needs to ask themselves.

00:14:00--> 00:14:03

Because we've we've mentioned over and over again, that when we say yes,

00:14:05--> 00:14:08

this is a drop, well listen to what the hell

00:14:10--> 00:14:18

you are admitting in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala, to the fact that you are powerless and cannot rely on your own ability.

00:14:20--> 00:14:34

And in fact, the province has said in politics that very clearly in the drama and the drama of the person who's facing the hardship, and facing hardships that God has promised us and taught us to sing as part of that. But to kill me ill enough.

00:14:36--> 00:14:50

to not put me in a situation where I'm relying on myself even for just the blinking of an eye. And even for just one moment, a lot. Don't leave me to be just relying and have to depend on myself.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

This is the drive that we should make, especially during times of difficulty but in reality, it is part of this

00:15:00--> 00:15:03

Got, that we were making when we say he can stay?

00:15:05--> 00:15:08

So the question now arises when you say you're gonna stay in?

00:15:09--> 00:15:21

What does it really mean when you say you're turning only told us one without a promo? And you are admitting the fact that you cannot help yourself? And no one else really can help you other than all this?

00:15:23--> 00:15:29

This is Donna. I mean, you can ask yourself this question Why? Why would you turn to all this data?

00:15:32--> 00:15:39

Why is it that Allah subhana wa tada tells us to say in this to her that we will seek help only and almost

00:15:41--> 00:15:45

in this seeking of helping Allah subhanaw taala is based on two principles to us.

00:15:47--> 00:15:52

And that is having trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. And having reliance on almost

00:15:54--> 00:15:56

trust and reliance on all.

00:15:59--> 00:16:04

These are two slightly different aspects, but they come together when we say here in a state

00:16:06--> 00:16:08

because trusting someone pulls up,

00:16:09--> 00:16:25

you might trust someone, but you cannot rely on him to do something, maybe because he doesn't have the ability to do. And you know that he doesn't have the ability. So with respect to trust, you might have full trust in him, but you know, that you cannot rely.

00:16:27--> 00:16:39

And if you have some, for example, some kind of thing that needs to be done, and you know that he doesn't have the ability to do it. You might know that he's very honest, and you have complete trust in him. But you know that for this you cannot rely.

00:16:41--> 00:16:46

And in other cases, you might have to rely on someone, even though you don't trust

00:16:48--> 00:16:57

you might have to go to a doctor, for example, emergency room here, you have no choice you in the emergency room, and you look up and it's your neighbor that you hated for 20 years or something.

00:16:59--> 00:17:04

You don't trust the person but you're in a situation where you have to rely on that person to do what needs to do.

00:17:06--> 00:17:12

So both of these concepts are brought together. And this verse when we say the state,

00:17:13--> 00:17:27

this concept, and what you're going to stay means and the concept that is referring to that has been mentioned by numerous voters, I can't even recount the number of scholars who have said this is what this is referring to. It is a

00:17:28--> 00:17:34

talk below love putting one's trust and reliance in a listen panel with that.

00:17:36--> 00:17:43

And at the same time also I cannot tell you how many scholars have said that the whole religion

00:17:44--> 00:17:49

the whole religion revolves around two principles. And by that

00:17:51--> 00:18:00

whole religion revolves around these two principles of thought. And as I said, you can find this in many books have

00:18:01--> 00:18:05

an officer and he's explaining these verses, the prime minister

00:18:08--> 00:18:08

said that

00:18:13--> 00:18:14

the total is half of the deal.

00:18:15--> 00:18:26

And the other half is enough. And if Turing told us that and he says the reason for that fame, that Dean thing, Dina is Donna whatever.

00:18:27--> 00:18:45

Or the religion is Astana, seeking help and all this kind of went to Allah and worship ovilus and with that, talk Hello. Hola. lista Anna, who wants to trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala and reliance and Allah is in Astana will inhibit unibead turning to Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is worship.

00:18:46--> 00:19:00

In fact, when we look through the Quran, as you will know that when we look through the Quran we'll see that the concepts of Avada and token are conjoined by Allah subhana wa tada and many places.

00:19:02--> 00:19:09

For example, Allah subhana wa Taala says, when you lay with some of what you will learn what led you to Jerusalem,

00:19:11--> 00:19:15

about who what what Kill la Amara boca de la palina

00:19:17--> 00:19:33

Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the unseen of the heavens and the earth belongs to Allah and every matter are all matters returned to him. So worship Him, not Bhutto, what took Ali and put your trust and reliance in him

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

and actually we find from many of the, of the prophets Allah subhana wa tada bringing statements of this nature I was run without also tells us hora de la la la la la Mata say he is my lord there is no god but He and him do I put my trust and in Him do I turn one metab another these things is all meaning about

00:20:00--> 00:20:03

Turning to Allah subhanaw taala and worshiping Allah Subhana Allah.

00:20:05--> 00:20:11

Allah subhanho wa Taala also says in the Quran Allah, Allah katakana way like a nebula

00:20:13--> 00:20:34

or a lord in you to put our trust and a new duty towards independence. And to use the final rule is just some examples of anything new brings a number of example, where the concept of abundant work, having putting one's trust in Allah subhanaw taala are brought together in the Quran in the same way really that they are brought together in this room.

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

When we return to the Quran, as I just said, one of the aspects that we can see

00:20:40--> 00:20:54

is that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions a token about it many times together. And in fact, actually for the concept of either the command to do or praising of it and so forth, is found over 65 times in the Quran.

00:20:56--> 00:21:08

And among those times, we see for example, that a taco is one of the necessary components of Islam and a remand. And it is part of what it means to be a true believer.

00:21:10--> 00:21:16

Allah subhana wa tada tells us for example, while a life took kettle mini

00:21:17--> 00:21:21

and put your trust in Allah subhana wa tada trust and reliance and

00:21:23--> 00:21:25

if you are truly believed,

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

and in fact in the beginning of suta, and

00:21:29--> 00:22:11

Allah subhanho wa Taala gives a description of the believers and this description of the believers is an exclusive description. Meaning that it is only these people who are the true believers and who are deserving of the title of movement or believer. And this is you can see this by the wording of the verses Allah subhana wa tada and these verses begins by saying in the moment only Latina so in the map, this is part of the exclusive nature that the true believers are only those in the madwoman Allah DNA the duck Rolo blue, why the truly Atari Maya to Lima.

00:22:14--> 00:22:44

Allah subhanho wa Taala describes him that if they're reminded of Allah subhanho wa Taala then their hearts shake with beer and if there's verses or signs are recited to them, then their Eman is increased. And upon the Lord is whom they trust they put their trust in the Lord Allah Dini Okay, Mona salata woman Mara, Sapna home and then it continues the description that they are the people who establish this a lot of spin out of what they've been given. Hola, como una.

00:22:46--> 00:22:49

These are the ones who are the true, the true believers

00:22:51--> 00:23:01

are having trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala obviously it is an act of event it is something beloved to Allah subhanaw taala as Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us right in the light,

00:23:04--> 00:23:07

those who put their trust in Allah with that.

00:23:08--> 00:23:28

And another verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala promises and when you put your trust in Allah subhana wa tada Allah subhana wa Taala responds in a very specific way, as Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the Quran, Romania to a kill Allah light, for who has in the law value, Omri ajala, lowly felician

00:23:29--> 00:23:59

Allah subhana wa tada says, and whoever puts this trust and reliance in Allah, then he will suffice Allah subhanho wa Taala will suffice and Verily Allah will accomplish His purpose. Indeed, Allah has set a measure for all things. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will suffice and will meet his needs. And if Allah subhana wa Tada, has willed and decided to meet someone's need, then there's no one that's going to be able to stand in the way of what Allah subhanaw taala has decreed.

00:24:00--> 00:24:02

As the rest of the verses early on, this

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

is good.

00:24:06--> 00:24:11

So these are all some of the texts from the Quran that point to the importance of

00:24:12--> 00:24:12


00:24:14--> 00:24:16

Trust and reliance and Allah subhanaw taala.

00:24:17--> 00:24:19

But obviously, I haven't defined the concept yet.

00:24:21--> 00:24:24

So now comes the question is, what is the

00:24:26--> 00:24:28

what is the real meaning in the essence.

00:24:30--> 00:24:35

Now obviously, with many things, there's kind of a superficial level.

00:24:36--> 00:24:39

There may be a shallow, understandable bio.

00:24:40--> 00:24:46

And then there's a more in depth understanding in which you apply it and understand it

00:24:47--> 00:24:51

in many more ways, and you could say probably in a more correct way.

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

And unfortunately, as we mentioned, all of these concepts, when anyone has them even non Muslim people

00:25:00--> 00:25:10

Bring to him the concept of trusting God, what does it mean? Everyone has some kind of understanding of it, that we talked about there. But any Muslim, any non Muslim? You ask him what does worship mean?

00:25:11--> 00:25:33

Anyone, everyone has some kind of possible, but the world that we are looking for, obviously, is not what is the concept in our minds, or it might be floating around in the courtroom nowadays. But the goal that we're looking for is, what is the concept as derived from the Quran and Sunnah. And the teachings of the Sahaba and the teachings of the scholars of Islam.

00:25:35--> 00:25:45

From what some of the scholars have said, this is a kind of concept that one way of looking at is, it's difficult to put your finger on exactly how to define.

00:25:46--> 00:25:50

And this is, by the way, this is the case with many of the aspects related to the theme.

00:25:51--> 00:26:01

If you like try to define for someone, what is the man? And what does it mean the man and what does it really do to you, and it's very difficult to define it. So for example,

00:26:03--> 00:26:04

it is early in his book,

00:26:05--> 00:26:25

and as obedient his commentary on the book that I wrote 300 pages total, I don't know much of it, this kind of philosophy that maybe not most interest to us, but he said that it is something in itself, which is in itself something very long at the end something very unclear, with respect to its meaning.

00:26:27--> 00:26:33

And as a beauty company, I said because of that shy the scholars have different as to its definition.

00:26:35--> 00:26:42

Before we try to get to the definition of that some scholars I mentioned, one author's name is Abdul Hamid Malala, he made a very important point.

00:26:44--> 00:26:46

He said that Tokelau law

00:26:47--> 00:26:56

is a statement that many people say every morning and which they say under different circumstances.

00:26:57--> 00:27:01

However, those who understand its meaning are actually few of them.

00:27:03--> 00:27:05

And of those few number,

00:27:06--> 00:27:14

even fewer actually apply it and transform it from words to reality in their life.

00:27:15--> 00:27:21

The reality of the relationship between themselves and their own knifes relationship between themselves and others.

00:27:22--> 00:27:25

And the relationship between themselves and the people.

00:27:28--> 00:27:37

And inshallah is our goal, to try to understand this concept. So that inshallah we'll be able to make it a reality in our life.

00:27:38--> 00:27:50

And so that inshallah when we say he can sustain when we make this draw, and when we make this pledge to Allah subhanho wa Taala inshallah, we will be truthful to our pledge to note that,

00:27:52--> 00:28:01

let us first discuss what some of the scholars have said as a definition, and then we'll discuss even claims approach to this

00:28:02--> 00:28:07

amendment said that a total is an action of the heart.

00:28:11--> 00:28:13

What he meant by that

00:28:14--> 00:28:22

is that it is something that it is not a statement of the tongue. It is not something we do with our physical body.

00:28:23--> 00:28:47

Nor is it something of like a scientific topic or a theoretical topic, but it is an action in the heart and action of the heart. And some define this action of the heart or knowledge of the heart of the knowledge by which Allah subhanho wa Taala Rob takes care of the, of the service. And in the way the ROB suffices for the service.

00:28:49--> 00:28:54

While others have explained it as a dog, being pleased,

00:28:56--> 00:29:00

being pleased with whatever Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed.

00:29:03--> 00:29:09

And others have defined it as and probably this last one is, this one, if you ask me, at least when we come to our,

00:29:10--> 00:29:14

I guess the one closest to our conclusion, a total

00:29:16--> 00:29:19

is defined as a tolerable delay equally

00:29:21--> 00:29:30

to be attached to Allah subhanaw taala have some kind of connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala under all circumstances.

00:29:32--> 00:29:45

So I'm going to fire him after presenting some of these definitions. He said that in reality, a total is a condition or a state, which is made up of many different matters,

00:29:46--> 00:29:52

or many different facets. And at what will will not be complete unless all of these facets

00:29:54--> 00:29:57

and those people who defined it in the different ways

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

that they defined it

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

In reality, they are only mentioning one or two of these aspects.

00:30:06--> 00:30:17

So totally so that actually is the combination of these many different aspects. And the way the scholars were defining it, they were just like highlighting one aspect or another aspect of it.

00:30:19--> 00:30:26

So, I am goes on to his components of the locker room discuss some, I think I left one

00:30:29--> 00:30:30

the first component

00:30:31--> 00:30:35

and perhaps the basis obviously, of what a lot

00:30:36--> 00:30:40

is knowing a lot and knowing his attributes,

00:30:41--> 00:30:43

knowing a lot and knowing his that,

00:30:44--> 00:31:00

and in knowing, for example, how he sustains the creation how it is. I mean, we already spoke about how he is, I mean, this is the first step, this is the first step in having any real work.

00:31:02--> 00:31:03

This is the first step.

00:31:04--> 00:31:08

Because if you're going to put your trust and reliance in someone or something,

00:31:10--> 00:31:14

you don't want to know what are the characteristics of that person or being

00:31:15--> 00:31:19

to make sure that you're putting your trust and reliance in a proper beam.

00:31:21--> 00:31:24

So therefore, you must first realize the qualities

00:31:26--> 00:31:39

you must first realize the qualities that the person needs or the being needs to put your trust in them. And then you must know whether or not that person are being nice those books. So the one who knows all the best

00:31:40--> 00:31:50

and knows the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala he will immediately turn and put this trust in reliance and Allah subhanaw taala because of these names,

00:31:51--> 00:32:08

but the one who doesn't know Allah subhanaw taala by all those names and attributes, doesn't realize completely, who is Allah Spano tala. He is the one who may not realize whether he should put this trust and reliance and all this or not, or whether or not there's someone else.

00:32:10--> 00:32:22

Actually, what we've stated in this surah before these verses, all of those, especially the first, just even the first, the second, the second verse, hamdu, lillahi, Rabbil alameen.

00:32:23--> 00:32:28

Even if you understand what that means, when you say 111 what that means about all

00:32:29--> 00:32:33

the things that we spoke about that he has all the excellent quote isn't

00:32:35--> 00:32:44

just this understanding of 100 laid out below the mean and then the teaser of Malala mean, this will be sufficient. This should be sufficient for anyone then to come to this conclusion of V.

00:32:46--> 00:32:53

Actually, when Allah subhanho wa Taala points us to the importance of putting our trust in Allah Subhana

00:32:55--> 00:32:58

Allah subhanho wa Taala at the same time gives us

00:32:59--> 00:33:09

His names and attributes that emphasize why it is in Allah subhanho wa Taala that anyone should put his trust. So for example,

00:33:11--> 00:33:16

in one verse, Allah subhanaw taala says, look toward kill Allah hi Isla de la nuit

00:33:18--> 00:33:23

Put your trust and reliance in the one who lives and does not die

00:33:25--> 00:33:26

that important

00:33:27--> 00:33:37

especially if you're talking about long term you know you might put your trust in reliance and someone think okay, this guy is gonna is my ticket to the Easy Street. Next day he does what are you going to do

00:33:39--> 00:33:43

but if you put your trust in reliance and Allah subhana wa Tada, you don't have to worry

00:33:44--> 00:33:48

is the one who is always going to be there. It's always going to be there, no matter what happens.

00:33:49--> 00:33:59

Anything else that you make turn to anything else that you might even think about putting interesting possibility is the next day it's gonna be here, whatever.

00:34:02--> 00:34:06

And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned by the way, that he is at height, that he is living,

00:34:08--> 00:34:16

which by the way, indirectly is the reputation of those who go to people who are dead, and put their trust and reliance in those people who are dead,

00:34:17--> 00:34:30

which is a common form of polytheism throughout the world, and even unfortunately, among Muslim men without another verses also points out other aspects, for example, was the battle with dialysis.

00:34:32--> 00:34:36

ramaiya Tilak kilala lay the in the law as Islam Hakeem

00:34:37--> 00:34:45

Allah subhanho wa Taala says, But whoever puts his trust in the love and surely, Allah Almighty always.

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

Because if you want to put your trust and reliance on someone, you want to make sure that that person, as we said, there's you might trust someone but you cannot put your clients. You want to make sure that that person has the ability

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

To fulfill what it is that you're putting your trust in.

00:35:04--> 00:35:23

He has the ability to do it. So Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us basically, who are you going to put your trust, you should put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala, obviously, for many reasons, but I wasn't I don't want to highlight this in the law as Islam hacking. He is as he is, he has all the power, all the bills.

00:35:25--> 00:35:26

And just as important maybe,

00:35:27--> 00:35:30

because someone with all the ability sometimes

00:35:31--> 00:35:38

may get out of hand, and may not realize when they should use their strength and power and when they should use this thing.

00:35:40--> 00:35:57

Yeah, someone to do some more work. And then he has the ability to do it, he has the power to do it. But he doesn't know when to rein in his power when to use his power. This way or that way. But unless again, without as not only as is, but also with Dallas Hakeem.

00:35:58--> 00:36:09

So Allah subhanho wa Taala, even when you put your trust in him, when he has, he has the ability to do it, but is also going to fulfill your trust in a way that is intelligent, what.

00:36:11--> 00:36:18

And all of these are different verses in which you're listening to what Don is pointing out, and why someone would want to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:36:19--> 00:36:30

And if these are he's giving us the details of what actually we should already know. But these details from the law should increase our opinion or certainty and our relationship with Allah.

00:36:32--> 00:36:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala also says what's welcome Aziz with work lol as easy Rahim.

00:36:41--> 00:36:52

Put your trust in Allah Aziz. Also a Rahim. So not only is Allah subhanho wa Taala, as is able to do whatever you put your trust in. Hakeem

00:36:54--> 00:37:08

knows how to fulfill that trust for you, but is also for him. And he will do it in the way that even beyond your expectations or realization that you will do it in such a way that it will be merciful to be the best for you based

00:37:11--> 00:37:16

on this man with Allah also says what vocal ally in the who, who was severely

00:37:18--> 00:37:22

put your trust in Allah, He is all hearing the old No.

00:37:24--> 00:37:29

Because also if you're going to put your trust in reliance, so one you need to make sure that that person knows what you need.

00:37:31--> 00:37:41

And sometimes you may need my change what you putting a trust in Allah Subhana with that as a summit, he hears everything. And he's alive He knows everything.

00:37:44--> 00:38:04

In the verse that we mentioned earlier, Allah span with dialysis or delay available somewhat, of a span otara of the unseen belongs to Allah spent with Allah, the unseen of the heavens and the earth. While he returned, all matters returned to him, boo boo, Daddy, Mama poco de la Putin.

00:38:05--> 00:38:10

And Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in your Lord is not unaware of what.

00:38:12--> 00:38:14

And then finally, actually listen with Allah

00:38:16--> 00:38:35

tells us that he is sufficient as the one that we can put our trust in and as a disposer repairs, Allah subhanaw taala says we're talking LA, Boca fabula he walk in and put your trust in Allah. And Allah is enough as a Disposer of affairs.

00:38:36--> 00:38:43

So the first aspect of having the proper trust and alignment with data. And all of this is tied into as I said,

00:38:47--> 00:38:52

all of this is actually tied into what we are applying and what we're saying in this course.

00:38:53--> 00:38:55

So the first aspect is to know about the list.

00:38:57--> 00:38:59

And as I said, Every Muslim knows about the list.

00:39:01--> 00:39:16

But the more you think about these things, the more you realize these things and that's why I wish there was more data is telling us all of these points over and over the trust and the bond between you and Allah subhanho wa Taala will become greater and greater.

00:39:18--> 00:39:25

Anytime you think of turning away from Allah subhana wa tada to anything else, if you then remember that is as easy as

00:39:26--> 00:39:29

that you will immediately say what am I doing?

00:39:30--> 00:39:36

This is silliness to turn to anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala and put my trust and reliance in anyone other than almost

00:39:38--> 00:39:40

another aspect of the total Allah Allah

00:39:41--> 00:39:45

is to realize and to affirm the concept of

00:39:47--> 00:39:49

what we call cause and effect.

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

This is actually part of a tokelauan and it will from the aspect of the causes and the cause and effect

00:40:00--> 00:40:19

This is one of the ways that many Muslims have strayed in the past, where they think that putting their trust in Allah subhanaw taala means for example, let's say like just making the drop, making Vicar and these kind of things without doing the actions that are needed to fulfill your goal.

00:40:21--> 00:40:39

And so because of that, they get into a situation where they are very much miss a week or incapacitated because they're not using the tools that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given. And inshallah, if we have time, we'll discuss more of the concept of a spell. And its relationship to

00:40:40--> 00:40:43

it. One of the aspects to realize here

00:40:44--> 00:40:50

is that a Tokelau law is one of the strongest as one of the strongest causes

00:40:52--> 00:40:55

to achieve what it is that you are putting your trust in real, let's

00:40:57--> 00:41:01

talk a lot a lot is one of the stolen, we talked about causes and effect.

00:41:02--> 00:41:34

You know, when we take a word like cause and effect, if we want to build something, you know, we put the plans out and we do the materials, we hire the workers and so forth. Right? This would be like the causes and effect in this world. But one of the strongest causes that people overlook, and it is part of the concept of TOEFL alone, is the realization that putting your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala is one of the most important causes that can help you achieve you

00:41:35--> 00:41:46

know, the words if you tried to build this building, without first having putting the trust and reliance and all this manner, without that you will be able to achieve this goal,

00:41:47--> 00:41:52

then Allah subhana wa tada may not come to your help and come to your benefit to help you achieve your goal.

00:41:54--> 00:42:14

For some people, unfortunately, again, especially in the history of Islam, and maybe there are still around today. We think that a token, and also a draw, even a drop. They think these are just meaningless rituals. You have to perform them because Allah has ordered you to do them.

00:42:15--> 00:42:33

But they don't have any effects. You know, the way they look at us, like other forms of everything has already been decreed, or there's nothing, there's no rule effect in it. So there's no real benefit from a DA and a total except for the fact that Allah subhana wa has ordered us to do it.

00:42:34--> 00:42:35

And so therefore we do it.

00:42:36--> 00:42:42

But actually, and the DA are from the spell bar from the from the real causes

00:42:44--> 00:42:52

are related to Allah subhanho wa Taala Who is the man who's the one behind all of the actions that occur

00:42:54--> 00:43:00

and in reverse that are referred to earlier, it is very clear that Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:43:01--> 00:43:04

is showing that there is an effect

00:43:05--> 00:43:08

that comes about when you put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala

00:43:10--> 00:43:16

because Allah subhanaw taala and the verse over there never says woman yet to work a lot a lot for who has

00:43:17--> 00:43:22

that one who puts his trust in Allah subhanaw taala unless suffices

00:43:23--> 00:43:25

that means that there is a corresponding

00:43:27--> 00:43:30

action from Allah subhanho wa Taala for the one who puts his trust

00:43:32--> 00:43:39

and as we know that the listener with Allah is the master controller on the whole universe of all of this creation.

00:43:40--> 00:43:44

So by putting your trust in Allah subhanaw taala This is one of this.

00:43:45--> 00:44:01

This is one of the causes that inshallah will bring about before that you want to achieve. So this verse clearly shows us that there is a difference in results are the one who puts his trust in Allah subhanaw taala and the one who does not put his trust in Allah subhana wa tada

00:44:03--> 00:44:08

and also there's a hadith processor that also alludes to the same meaning.

00:44:09--> 00:44:18

The prophet SAW Selim said no and no, come come to Kelowna ally haka coup de la cama, Eurosport

00:44:19--> 00:44:22

Emerson, Thoreau before on

00:44:23--> 00:44:27

the promises Selim said that if you were to put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:44:28--> 00:44:42

and the full way that you should put your trust in him, then he will provide for you in the way that he provides for the birth that goes out in the morning, empty stomach and he comes back fills in the stomach.

00:44:43--> 00:44:45

So here the post

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

is showing us that there is a result from putting your trust in was that if you put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala in the proper way, Allah subhanho wa Taala will provide you turn to Allah subhana wa tada and Allah

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

And what Allah will provide.

00:45:03--> 00:45:16

But as I said, this concept may not be as easy as, as Michelle loves will talk about. Sometimes there's many things that get in the way of having the proper and full trust in Allah subhanaw taala.

00:45:18--> 00:45:25

A third aspect, of course, of the total Allah subhanaw taala is to free yourself from any kind of shift.

00:45:28--> 00:45:33

And you cannot turn always look towards anyone other than Allah Subhana with that.

00:45:35--> 00:45:38

And it's this concept, for example, like when you say law,

00:45:39--> 00:46:02

and realizing that there's no power and you might accept an illustration without actually it is this concept of freeing yourself from any kind of short, which is part of the tokelauan a lot. It is this concept that led some people to that mistake that I alluded to earlier who they reject this bug, where they don't follow the cause of the world that causes an effect.

00:46:03--> 00:46:08

Because for them, this is a kind of tying yourself to those worldly causes.

00:46:10--> 00:46:21

So if you start believing those worldly causes, as we said before, if you start believing in those root causes as being the true cause and effect, then actually that that will lead you to shut up.

00:46:22--> 00:46:27

So even though Pam said that there's some truth to this, but they made a mistake,

00:46:28--> 00:46:32

and that is that you don't put in your heart, you don't put your trust and reliance.

00:46:34--> 00:46:36

Physically you do physically you have to

00:46:37--> 00:46:44

put in your heart you don't tie yourself to those words because in your heart you tie yourself only to or listen.

00:46:45--> 00:46:47

In your heart, you're only tied to

00:46:49--> 00:46:53

if it's tied to anything else, then this opens the door for sure.

00:46:55--> 00:47:03

And so actually someone's to hate is not complete, and it is not correct. He chooses his computer.

00:47:06--> 00:47:07

To go hand in hand

00:47:08--> 00:47:11

is part of our to hate that we make our total.

00:47:13--> 00:47:16

Another component the fourth component of this took a lot of love

00:47:17--> 00:47:27

is that the heart and He puts its reliance on Allah subhanho wa Taala and relies on him and feels tranquil tranquility and dead reliance and all those

00:47:29--> 00:47:31

people's tranquility and that reliance and

00:47:34--> 00:47:41

and what that means and if you put your full trust and reliance in Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:47:42--> 00:47:51

If you put your full trust in reliance and all this metadata, what that means is we'll talk about later is that whatever occurs then after that doesn't matter to

00:47:53--> 00:48:05

whatever occurs after that doesn't matter to you, in the sense that you will put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala what you are relying on us, men without us, so therefore whatever occurs to you.

00:48:06--> 00:48:13

It is just like, for example, if I rely on someone, I hire someone to do a job, and I know that this person is good and trustworthy.

00:48:14--> 00:48:18

So in my mind, I might have one concept of how this job was to be done.

00:48:19--> 00:48:21

And the way he does it is completely different.

00:48:24--> 00:48:31

Now, should I then say you know what's wrong with this person outcome? I have one concept. And he what he did was completely different.

00:48:33--> 00:48:41

Because I had complete trust and reliance on him that I know that I'm putting myself in a situation where I am trusting with him.

00:48:43--> 00:49:21

And so therefore whatever he does, whatever the conclusion. And of course, we cannot confirm unless one without all of these worldly examples. But then whatever he does, if I really had to trust and reliance on him, whatever he does, even if it's the opposite of what I thought he would do, as soon as I would see the result, I would think, Okay, you know what you're doing, this must have been what is right, this must have been the best. And in fact, I don't know, maybe the speed a little bit here. In fact, if you think you still have some say in the matter at the end, this means you don't have the correct trust and reliance on others.

00:49:25--> 00:49:36

If you say for example, if you're in a situation, let's say like your fear the enemy or something, they're about to torture you or punish you or something like that. And so you say I'll put my trust in all this matter with that.

00:49:38--> 00:49:42

If you put your trust in this manner without it then you're submitting the affair told us

00:49:44--> 00:49:56

we're submitting the affair told us that it's no longer no your decision. What do you think is the best outcome? You don't put your trust in elisabetta with data and say this is the outcome that you'd come out? And if it's not, then there's something wrong.

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

Then why did you put your trust in Erlandsson Oh,

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

metadata you didn't totally put your trust knows.

00:50:03--> 00:50:10

Because when you submit the affair told us about what data, you are saying that I don't know, actually what the outcome should be.

00:50:11--> 00:50:15

And I'm relying on your luck to determine what the outcomes.

00:50:17--> 00:50:34

So if you put your trust, if you truly put your trust and Lance and Allah subhanaw taala in the way that is part of and they're in the way that is part of our domain, then you're not going to question or think that you have any say in the matter of filled us with Allah.

00:50:37--> 00:50:42

Because that shows that actually, you are not accepting what almost,

00:50:46--> 00:50:51

you know, it's like, for example, a child growing up, puts the trust in their parents,

00:50:52--> 00:50:54

or at least some of you wish that they were there.

00:50:55--> 00:50:59

response I got quickly the hypothetical child puts his trust

00:51:00--> 00:51:02

in his parents

00:51:03--> 00:51:23

and realizes that what's the parents doing for them that this parent, for example, is not going to? So when he takes him to the doctor, and gets a shot, the shot hurts the child but the child thinks, okay, my parents are not going to do anything on me. There must be some reason must be possible. It's not what I expected. I thought we're going for ice cream, but okay,

00:51:24--> 00:51:34

if that's the result, Now, of course, the parent does not like Allah subhanaw taala right, how many shots they give nowadays, and then then 20 years later, they say oh, by the way, this cause cancer in disguise.

00:51:35--> 00:51:41

That is the big difference between putting your trust in Allah and Allah subhanaw taala and any human being.

00:51:43--> 00:51:50

So another component also is you must have what they call a gun video must have good expectations then of others.

00:51:52--> 00:51:57

Obviously, if you know all this, without if you know his attributes, you want to have good expectations.

00:51:58--> 00:52:04

You know, all of that is never going to warn you or cause you any kind of injustice towards you for no reason or anything.

00:52:06--> 00:52:13

But again, those people who don't know this man without appropriately, they're the ones who don't have this relationship or this feeling.

00:52:14--> 00:52:24

And so therefore, they end up winning, even if they say you're gonna have to do we're gonna stain, how many times they are not willing really to put their trust in reliance, just notice.

00:52:25--> 00:52:34

How many times have you heard for example from from Muslims, or for Muslims, people who say things like, Allah does not give me what I deserve.

00:52:36--> 00:52:37

I don't know how many times I've heard.

00:52:39--> 00:52:40

Allah does not give me work that is me.

00:52:43--> 00:52:48

I don't know all the ramifications that that has about, about their beliefs.

00:52:50--> 00:52:54

But what are the ramification obviously, they do not really have personal

00:52:56--> 00:53:02

expectations, big thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala. And obviously it means that they do not know all this.

00:53:04--> 00:53:10

So you turn the matter over to Allah subhana wa Tada. And you realize that

00:53:12--> 00:53:30

you are turning the matter over to someone who knows someone who can bring out the best, someone who has a hand. And so therefore there is no longer any rule for you anymore. To say, this is what should have occurred. I put my trust in Allah so I could get this and this happened when this is not putting your trust number.

00:53:32--> 00:53:46

And I put my trust in Allah that I would pass the exam and I feel this is not what I wanted. It so that means you did not actually submit the matter to Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala made you fail. He is the one who knows best.

00:53:48--> 00:53:54

If you really put the matter to Allah subhanho wa Taala. One of the results of that obviously is as we said that pleasure with a list

00:53:55--> 00:54:01

you'll not find any dissatisfaction with what Allah subhanaw taala has decreed.

00:54:03--> 00:54:23

So before the act, you put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala and after the act you have the pleasure in Allah subhana wa Tada. As Pam said, the one who puts his reliance and trust in Allah subhanaw taala before the act, and is pleased with what Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed after the act

00:54:24--> 00:54:32

for the Palm Desert overview then he is in fact fulfilling or being a true servitude towards Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:54:34--> 00:54:49

This is, as I said, these are the different components of what it means to put our trust in their lesson and with that, it is not something as a reference. It's not something that is just something on our tongue. When we leave the morning, you leave the home

00:54:50--> 00:54:56

a lot, and it's not just something on your tongue or something but it is a whole framework, a whole set of mine.

00:54:58--> 00:55:00

That for you to hate to be broken.

00:55:00--> 00:55:16

For your pipe to the last minute without the proper, we have to understand this concept properly. We have to understand it the first aspect of course, we have to understand, then we have to figure out how do we apply it in our lives.

00:55:17--> 00:55:20

So to sum up, and it is a state of the heart,

00:55:22--> 00:55:37

a lot of lies a state of the heart that results from knowing Allah, and believing that he alone creates managers benefits and harms, and that is wise and powerful and merciful. And whatever he wills accrues, and what he does not move enough.

00:55:39--> 00:56:05

So from this belief, then the person will turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala in truly trust all of his affairs to Allah subhanaw taala have tranquility, and comfort and peace in what Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed of trust in Him, and certainty that Allah will suffice for whoever puts his trust in Him, regardless of what any other human might try to do. And

00:56:06--> 00:56:21

here's like an infant in the arms of his parents, he puts his trust in them, he should have complete comfort in knowing that they'll do what is best for him. And so therefore, the infant, the young infant, before it gets to the age, where they no longer listen to the parent.

00:56:22--> 00:56:32

The young infant, when you look at the child has no reason for concern, no reason for worry, because he's in the arms of someone he trusts puts his reliance in.

00:56:33--> 00:57:10

So he has no reason to worry, no reason to concern is the full trust of two full bond between them. And that is the kind of feeling that we should have towards Allah subhanaw taala and that is what it means to put our trust in and reliance in Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is as I said, it is a concept. It may not be the easiest concept to ponder over all the time and make sure that we apply but it is something which is essential, something that we have to understand and it's something inshallah we hope to build, as I said to become better and to Muslims inshallah.

00:57:11--> 00:57:21

From the time I think this is maybe a good point to stop here, and continue. Next time, maybe we will just stop it or just sum it up briefly and try to move on.
