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

Nothing about him having dilla have the lowest dose of cinnamon has been hammered Washington aid and the lower

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


00:00:12--> 00:00:29

I'm about. So we've been discussing the last portion of the last verse of sort of tobacco. And now we can see the relationship between all of these verses that are on the board here. From the headiness of openness and openness in an entirety.

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

We can understand now from our discussion of revealing,

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

and abolishing,

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

and through the help of other verses from and through the help of the power from Hamas, or Solomon his explanation of this last verse,

00:00:52--> 00:00:59

we can understand that there are two basic components to the straight path

00:01:00--> 00:01:01

and to being on the straight path.

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

And these two basic bars as we saw, are the antithesis of what is

00:01:09--> 00:01:12

described in this last portion of the verse.

00:01:13--> 00:01:17

So, these components are number one, having the knowledge of what is the state

00:01:19--> 00:01:30

and as we said, we discussed the concept of guidance. That's the first aspect of guidance is to be shown or to be given the knowledge of what is the state

00:01:32--> 00:01:46

and one thing that our discussion of bugging pointed out which should have been clear to us so should be obvious. Maybe you could say to everybody, but unfortunately doesn't seem to be so is that you cannot have knowledge of what is the best straight path.

00:01:48--> 00:02:03

And that path is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala unless you go back to the source, the real source of knowledge, who knows how he is to be worshipped? Who knows what is pleasing? Sam, you have to go back to Allah subhana wa tada

00:02:04--> 00:02:10

to understand what is the strict and what is that type of guidance? What is that, that is pleasing to our listeners.

00:02:14--> 00:02:31

If you do not go back to Allah subhanaw taala and try to base your practice and try to base what you believe to be the right path. If you do not base that on guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Or if you are lackadaisical, with respect to trying to get that knowledge and that guidance,

00:02:32--> 00:02:41

then it may be that you think that you're on the right path for claim for yourself that you're on the right path, while in reality or you're not on the right.

00:02:43--> 00:02:46

So, number one is having the knowledge of the safe path.

00:02:49--> 00:02:52

And number two, is to have the correct

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

the true and proper intention, the heart

00:02:57--> 00:03:03

the true desire and the want to worship Allah subhana wa tada and worship only Allah subhanaw taala

00:03:06--> 00:03:10

In other words, you have to have the will the desire in your heart

00:03:11--> 00:03:18

to implement that truth or to implement that straight path that you have now recognizes that you know

00:03:21--> 00:03:29

what that is really in the heart, the desire and the drive to worship Allah subhanaw taala then when the person turns so

00:03:31--> 00:03:51

sincerely, and makes this guy so Allah subhanaw taala inshallah will somehow with Allah will bless him by giving him that guidance. And as we said, that is the complete guide is knowing the safe path. And having in your heart, the will desire to follow that path as well as being blessed with the ability to follow that path and being guided to this action.

00:03:54--> 00:04:08

So similarly here when we talk about vacation, and the desire to worship Allah subhanaw taala. Again, it means the desire or the intention to worship Allah subhana wa tada and the way that Allah subhanho wa Taala wants in order for him to be worshipped,

00:04:09--> 00:04:15

not in the way that you decide he should be worshipped, or not in any way independent of what Allah subhanaw taala

00:04:16--> 00:04:28

has ordered for him to be worshipped. But the desire the intent has to be to worship Allah subhanaw taala in the way that Allah subhanho wa Taala orders and wants to be

00:04:30--> 00:04:37

given to me on sensitive goodness and happiness, completeness and righteousness are all captured in two matters.

00:04:39--> 00:04:46

Goodness, happiness, completeness and righteousness all captured into matters, beneficial knowledge and religious deeds.

00:04:48--> 00:04:55

And Allah subhanho wa Taala as sent Mohammed Salah, send them with the best wisdom, the guidance the Buddha and the religion of truthiness.

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

This is escape has been talking about

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

is made up of that knowledge as well as the righteous deeds. Or another way of saying it is and put up, which is talking about the knowledge, the guidance, and given how to choose devices.

00:05:13--> 00:05:15

On the other hand, misery and

00:05:17--> 00:05:20

unhappiness both in this life but especially in the hereafter.

00:05:22--> 00:05:24

But sometimes the results of not recognizing the truth,

00:05:25--> 00:05:28

sometimes the result of a lack of will to follow.

00:05:29--> 00:05:31

And sometimes even a combination of

00:05:33--> 00:05:36

not recognizing it and also not having the will. So.

00:05:39--> 00:05:41

So, as we've been speaking about the last couple of lectures,

00:05:43--> 00:05:46

these two major deviations from the state,

00:05:47--> 00:05:59

these two major deviations, concerning which will make die every day to Allah subhanaw taala, to keep us from to protect us from falling into these two traps.

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

And as we described Last time, we can call one facade for a problem with respect to knowledge about the lesson how and how Allah subhanaw taala is to be worshipped. And this one of bullying these are exemplified by salons, by the Christian Brothers SLM has told us that this is in reference to the Christmas. And what this tells us,

00:06:25--> 00:06:36

as I just alluded to, that even if we go even if the goal and the intent that someone claims to have, even if that goal and intent is normal,

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

but it is not achieved by the proper means,

00:06:41--> 00:06:57

then it is not a valid goal. And so and in fact, if the goal is that goal is defined in such a way that is not based on knowledge, then even that goal actually will be incorrect. And if you want to worship a lesson on how to work out,

00:06:59--> 00:07:06

but you worship a lesson on what God is love based on knowledge, then you may end up worshiping something other than all this.

00:07:08--> 00:07:16

Because you're not worshiping Allah subhanaw taala based on their noses come from him. And as we said, in the case of boiling, those people have gone astray.

00:07:17--> 00:07:22

They will tell you that their intention is to worship Allah subhana wa Tada, they are different from Muslim and

00:07:24--> 00:07:39

so she has strayed so far in the knowledge that they think the worship of the Trinity, and the idea that God has a son and the son isn't this person and so forth, has made them stray so far, that even this claim even this intention actually means that

00:07:40--> 00:07:49

because the intention itself is not sufficient, the intention has to be backed up with following the right weight and having the quick knowledge.

00:07:51--> 00:07:57

And what ends up actually as is in the case of of them, it is common for this to occur

00:07:58--> 00:08:03

is that after a while, then even after with the truth is made clear to them.

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

Since their priority was not knowledge in the first place, even when the proof is made clear to them, it is difficult for them to give up what they're doing.

00:08:16--> 00:08:29

Because knowledge was not the essential thing in the first place. They are not worshiping the Trinity based on those universals. Otherwise, if they would have tried to trace that back to a Sunday for them, and tried to see the history of the church, they would not be worshiping the church.

00:08:30--> 00:08:34

So because they have that attitude, really a belittling knowledge,

00:08:35--> 00:08:39

belittling the truth, even when the truth is presented to them,

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

then it is not that important.

00:08:43--> 00:08:51

So even when they see the truth, they will not follow it. And in this way of Darlene are the Christians actually resemble him?

00:08:54--> 00:08:56

Because he whenever they see the truth, they will love forward.

00:08:57--> 00:09:05

And by the way, some scholars also say that tear a Berlin in reference to the Christians This is talking about before the coming of the problem

00:09:07--> 00:09:10

in particular, because after the coming out

00:09:12--> 00:09:16

now The truth is clear and claimed to have no excuse whatsoever.

00:09:17--> 00:09:33

And as we spoke about them before they are balling really under because of their own actions. But now the truth is plain and clear. They have no excuse. So they're not even just balling again, but they are very much consistent or similar to mobile VR.

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

And then we spoke about

00:09:38--> 00:09:39

or mobile VR.

00:09:41--> 00:09:48

And the main aspect was with respect to a body we said its facade or problem with respect to noise and with

00:09:49--> 00:09:52

this problem with respect to intention

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

and this is a disease in the hearts

00:09:59--> 00:09:59

does matter.

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

manifested in many ways.

00:10:03--> 00:10:09

First and foremost, it is manifested by the attitude towards the world, Allah subhanho wa Taala has revealed

00:10:10--> 00:10:11

the attitude towards the truth

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

that there is an indifference towards the truth, the disregard of the truth.

00:10:21--> 00:10:26

And so when that's the case, obviously, the truth is not going to have any effect on these people, they see the truth.

00:10:27--> 00:10:29

They ignore it, they recognize it as the truth.

00:10:30--> 00:10:33

But they're not willing to submit to it or they don't care for

00:10:35--> 00:10:38

the reasons why they don't care to submit your maybe many,

00:10:39--> 00:10:49

maybe preference for this world and things of this nature or simply giving. And this is probably the basis for simply giving Allah subhanaw taala not a very high priority in their lives.

00:10:51--> 00:11:35

So Allah subhanaw taala is not the highest priority, then is suddenly comes from Allah subhana wa tada and may not be of that much importance to you. And so therefore you will supply it. And because of that, and in that case, it's even worse because not only did they recognize the truth and know the truth, and not submit to a problem, but also how to work god bless them in many ways, and gave them preference to all of the different nations, the different peoples of that thing, but he said is preferred over all the other nations. So not only did they recognize the truth and not forwards, but they also do receive many donkeys from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And even those donkeys over and over

00:11:35--> 00:11:44

again from Allah subhanho wa Taala, including the sending of continuous prophets. Even this did not change their hearts in any way to make them submissive to Allah.

00:11:47--> 00:11:58

And so therefore, these are people who truly deserve the Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala. They have brought this wrath upon themselves, by their own intent by their own actions.

00:11:59--> 00:12:02

And this rise that they have received, actually,

00:12:03--> 00:12:27

as I said, they are unquestionably deserving The Wrath of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if anyone, any unbiased observer, observes what they have done and studied what they have done, it also comes to the conclusion that they deserved the Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala. And they also deserved the wrath and the hatred of anyone who believes in the truth, anyone who believes in ethics, and morality, there's no excuse for character.

00:12:28--> 00:12:31

So they deserved that rep from Allah.

00:12:33--> 00:12:43

And at the same time, let's say with respect to the promises. Now, they've also gone beyond that to the point that they don't even want to hear the truth.

00:12:44--> 00:12:52

They don't want to hear what the prime minister said, said they don't want to hear the truth of the Quran. So in this way, now, they've also become like a body.

00:12:54--> 00:12:56

For both groups, especially after the coming of

00:12:58--> 00:13:01

the hotel or the proof against them has once again been established.

00:13:03--> 00:13:05

And there'll be no excuse for them on the day just.

00:13:08--> 00:13:11

Now, there's some other points just from this last portion of this.

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

Some other aspects that we should reflect upon.

00:13:16--> 00:13:20

And let me mention about four or five, just mentioned four.

00:13:21--> 00:13:26

And then I'll discuss maybe one or two of them in some detail for the sake of time.

00:13:28--> 00:13:41

So when we think about him, and we think about the bullying, we go through the process, and we understand who is referring to, we go to the crowd, we understand who these people are and what they're about. There's some very important aspects that we can get from this.

00:13:42--> 00:13:45

One of them has to do with the place of knowledge,

00:13:47--> 00:14:04

its place of knowledge, these people are balling. Because they do not put any emphasis on getting on. This was not what was important to them. And their worship of the lesson was that they have both the place of knowledge and the importance of applying one's knowledge.

00:14:06--> 00:14:16

Because that was one of the basic problems with the Jews, even when the Prophet was in front of them. And they know that what he's saying is the truth, even then they will not apply.

00:14:17--> 00:14:25

So this last portion of the syrup, this wire that we make so many times again, it is pointing to the importance of knowledge,

00:14:26--> 00:14:32

the place of knowledge and the importance of applying was knowledge. If you understand what bonnin is.

00:14:34--> 00:14:59

Again, if you didn't even take the steps to find out who they are and what does it mean, then you may have never thought about this. But otherwise you're making job for Allah subhana wa tada to protect you from being in a situation where you don't have knowledge and asking Allah subhanaw taala to protect you from being in a situation where you're not applying the knowledge that you have. So that's one aspect, maybe put them into one the place of knowledge

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

The importance of applying one's knowledge. And maybe today that will be the one that I'll discuss in more detail.

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

Number two, which we can get from this jar,

00:15:11--> 00:15:16

is the importance of not following the same path of those that deviated

00:15:18--> 00:15:19

from the strip club.

00:15:21--> 00:15:26

And from this, we can see that those people on the straight path are different and distinct

00:15:28--> 00:15:32

from the other groups, especially concerning issues of faith,

00:15:34--> 00:15:36

especially in this day and age,

00:15:38--> 00:15:45

which the Muslim movement is relatively weak. And from a worldly point of view, from a secular point of view, those people

00:15:47--> 00:16:00

who have most of the power and the advancements are these two groups of people. It is especially in times like this, that it is easy for Muslim to fall into the trap of looking at them, and admiring them and wanting to be like them.

00:16:02--> 00:16:07

Even though every day in his salon is asking Allah subhanaw taala, to keep him away from their paths.

00:16:09--> 00:16:19

But once he leaves the salon, then he sees the world around him to the true fitness. This is a true trial for Muslims. When they see the world around them, they notice what they have is that

00:16:21--> 00:16:36

they know what they have is the truth, but they don't maybe understand all of the decree of Allah subhanaw taala, and all of the sin and all the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they just look around and they see him in Bali, having power even over Muslims.

00:16:38--> 00:16:53

So becomes easy for them to fall into the trap, and fall into the idea of maybe emulating them, respecting them looking up to them as examples of how we should behave in a civilized modern world.

00:16:55--> 00:17:01

But we have to remember that every time we come to the Salafi, ask Allah to keep us away from their time.

00:17:03--> 00:17:06

That's another point that maybe I'll discuss in more detail later.

00:17:08--> 00:17:09

30 also,

00:17:11--> 00:17:12

we see once again, obviously, that

00:17:14--> 00:17:22

these are very distinct groups, those people malasadas bless those people who have earned the back of the list.

00:17:24--> 00:17:26

And those people who have gone straight.

00:17:29--> 00:17:50

Obviously, the Muslim who realized that his path is different from the Christians and the Jews also, who refuse and will reject any kind of attempts to somehow merge or compromise these religions, to try to bring them together as one or or try to eliminate any kind of belief that there are differences between them.

00:17:52--> 00:18:26

And, you know, this kind of thing goes on, you can see in different magnitudes, but the interfaith movements, the children of Abraham, these kind of moments, because it's a different magnitude sometimes. But in many cases, the idea is the same that look, we're gonna forget about our differences, and come together and see what we can not just learn from each other, but see what we can kind of live together, or maybe compromise and seeing something about this or that, so that we can look at each other as one and on the same path and worshipping the same God.

00:18:28--> 00:18:31

It would actually be the prophecy

00:18:32--> 00:18:35

for Muslims to take part in decisions. He's making this every day.

00:18:37--> 00:18:42

Because he's asking Allah subhanaw taala to free himself from their ways. And then he says, Yes, let's

00:18:43--> 00:18:56

join together and forget about our differences and see what we can even to some extent, in some cases, even see what we can change Islam, change our understanding of Islam, so that we can come together and this one,

00:18:58--> 00:19:08

this is a topic that's important because of relevance nowadays, and all of these kind of movements and especially since 911, more and more people are getting more and more Muslims

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

are looking in this direction.

00:19:12--> 00:19:16

We may or may not have time to discipline that more detail.

00:19:18--> 00:19:20

And then finally, the last point I'd like to mention,

00:19:22--> 00:19:28

we mentioned the fact that we want to avoid their paths in general, but there's also the issue of studying

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

not for the past in particular,

00:19:33--> 00:19:50

so that we can know what they are to avoid them. For example, we talked about the mobile game in some detail and we spoke about the different characteristics that they had. That has led them to be cursed by Allah subhana wa tada and has led them to earn Ganga bolus.

00:19:53--> 00:19:55

We also need to study what is their way?

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

What is it that almost right over time is referring us to in the future

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

And some notes

00:20:02--> 00:20:02

about them.

00:20:04--> 00:20:11

So that we can see and study in detail whether or not we have been afflicted with those same disease.

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

And unfortunately, and this is a topic I will not get into, because this will take a long time if we decide to discuss questions and

00:20:21--> 00:20:35

when we listed something like 20 practices of the Jews, in the Quran and in the sinner the position for which they have received the Wrath of Allah subhanaw taala or curse from Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:20:37--> 00:20:39

And unfortunately, if you take

00:20:40--> 00:20:55

those 20 or 21 or 22 items, because I guarantee you, but if you take those different practices, and you see for example, how many of those practices are unfortunately the Muslims doing nowadays in their own?

00:20:57--> 00:21:02

They're doing themselves with respect to the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the guidance of alisson.

00:21:05--> 00:21:06

Remember, these are

00:21:07--> 00:21:11

these things that we discussed. They're all reasons why Allah subhanaw taala curse them,

00:21:12--> 00:21:14

and why they are in the Razzle is

00:21:18--> 00:21:26

not ruling by the book of Alison Hamilton. refusing the hakimullah Listen, hello, God devouring interests?

00:21:27--> 00:21:29

How many places in the Muslim world I was just in a home?

00:21:31--> 00:21:32

Visit illegal?

00:21:35--> 00:21:41

How many Muslim countries throughout the world is interest illegal? Actually, how many of them are applying the law?

00:21:42--> 00:21:50

And in how many places are the people themselves, the Muslims themselves asking for the lowest amount of dollars to be applied?

00:21:51--> 00:21:53

To go down that list you'll find?

00:21:54--> 00:21:57

Unfortunately, many, many of these practices

00:21:59--> 00:22:02

are being practiced by Muslims nowadays.

00:22:03--> 00:22:14

And it was less than have we learned from the Quran? What lessons have we learned from boring every day, I mean to almost random without in our job. And as you all know, surrounded with data to keep us from despair.

00:22:16--> 00:22:18

There's something wrong obviously,

00:22:19--> 00:22:27

there's something definitely wrong if we are turning to all this data and making this job. And then when you analyze this, you find that we're doing the same things that there's

00:22:30--> 00:22:31

something definitely wrong.

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

And I can assure you it's not wrong with all of our time.

00:22:37--> 00:22:40

Must be wrong with the one who's making this job.

00:22:42--> 00:22:44

Not even realizing maybe what he's saying in the Dr.

00:22:45--> 00:22:48

Oz we spoke about before not even caring really what you're saying.

00:22:49--> 00:22:53

But he's saying it just because he has been ordered by Allah subhanaw taala to say.

00:22:56--> 00:23:07

So those are four major points that just as we look at this last portion of the fact here that we could take as topics to discuss in detail and as I said, we'll discuss one or two of them shall

00:23:09--> 00:23:15

we begin to celebrate discussing the role and importance of acquiring knowledge and acting.

00:23:18--> 00:23:24

Before this, we say you can Alberto and we stated that the worship of Allah subhana wa tada

00:23:25--> 00:23:35

that is the goal that should be the goal of every human being. And in the true worship of Allah subhana wa Tada. One finds the real we can say completeness of a human being.

00:23:38--> 00:23:45

And that path to achieve that goal of worship Allah subhanaw taala has to be based on both knowledge and action.

00:23:47--> 00:23:48

If there's a shortcoming in either one,

00:23:50--> 00:23:56

there's a shortcoming, you're the one that there's going to be a shortcoming and how the person is following along the path.

00:23:58--> 00:24:06

And in fact, from this Sora, we can say that in general, all of mankind can be divided into three categories.

00:24:08--> 00:24:12

Number one, those people who know the truth and follow the truth.

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

They are the people who have been blessed.

00:24:18--> 00:24:20

Those people who know the truth and told the truth

00:24:21--> 00:24:26

number two, those people who recognize the truth but refuse to follow it.

00:24:29--> 00:24:38

And number three, those people who refuse to learn the truth and therefore act based on Hawaii or Windsor, a lot based on knowledge.

00:24:40--> 00:24:42

Many of the early scholars,

00:24:44--> 00:25:00

they stated that, if a scholar for example, deviates from the truth, or a scholar scholar from among the Muslims, if he deviates from the truth, or if he tries to distort the truth, to recognize the truth, but he and his family

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

Against whatever refuses to follow the truth, then he is resembling the Jews is resembling a liberal values

00:25:08--> 00:25:31

and if one of the worshipers and he goes people who are dedicated to worship, and throughout the history of Islam, including today, you can find people who you can find people who are more attractive that say to books and lectures and learn. And then you can find also Muslims who are more attracted to what they call the spiritual side,

00:25:32--> 00:26:13

the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the form of prayer or fasting, or Vicar and so forth. Now, when these people worship on this matter with God and not based on knowledge, not going towards the process, how it should be worship, and going through the sooner the process of them to see how it should be worshipped. And unfortunately, there's a lot of concepts and there's a lot of people throughout the Muslim world who believe in, in things is trying to achieve for example, you know, unification with Allah subhana wa tada for not losing oneself with almost none without going to the graves, and worshipping at the graves and praying to those people in the grave. All of this that are

00:26:13--> 00:26:20

done by Muslim Muslims do this. They are worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. They might claim that their intent is very good.

00:26:21--> 00:26:35

But they have not made sure that what they're doing is on the straight path. So therefore, they are resembling the Christians. So the scholars when they err in general, when they look to air as and make a mistake, but when they deviate from the straight path.

00:26:36--> 00:26:54

Many of the setup they said when the scholar deviates from the straight path, he is resembling the Jew and when the worshiper The one who worshipping Allah subhana wa tada and is dedicated to acts of worship, ritual acts of worship, when he deviates, he is resembling the Christians.

00:26:57--> 00:27:17

And as I said, this draw from almost no data is a drop to protect us from falling into these miserable paths. And as I said also that this when we say well born in we are whether we understand it or not. But the implication is we are seeking refuge from Melissa Manoa data from being among the angry

00:27:18--> 00:27:20

because a bonnievale are from among.

00:27:23--> 00:27:24

But we also spoke about

00:27:25--> 00:27:36

the fact that when you make draw, you also fold us, you don't just make the draw, and then don't do anything. You want to remain away from being among the greats, you should try to take the steps

00:27:37--> 00:27:38

to remain away from the

00:27:39--> 00:27:50

there are some Muslims will actually feel as one brother said, too much knowledge is a bad thing. You want to be careful, you want to be just as simple Muslim and not get too much knowledge and just can't

00:27:51--> 00:27:56

worship or less than or bad at the war so much right? And try not to give too much knowledge.

00:27:57--> 00:28:00

You can hear this now. I've heard it every now and then.

00:28:01--> 00:28:04

But remaining ignorant is also blameworthy. Almost

00:28:06--> 00:28:10

just in this God that we make makes it clear that remaining ignorant is blameworthy.

00:28:12--> 00:28:14

Instead almost random what God has given us

00:28:15--> 00:28:18

abilities, a lesson on what God has given us.

00:28:19--> 00:28:25

especially in this day and age. Allah subhanaw taala has given us great capabilities compared to earlier times.

00:28:27--> 00:28:47

Nowadays, for example, although unfortunately, still in many parts of the Muslim Ummah, there's still a problem with illiteracy and so forth. But for many of the Muslim Ummah are not only literate, but we have now books published, you can get almost any book that you want. You can even go to the internet and find books on the internet

00:28:48--> 00:28:50

and the access to knowledge

00:28:51--> 00:29:01

to Islamic knowledge. Now if you want to know from any country, and if you're particular about where to get your federalism just take some phone call or email.

00:29:02--> 00:29:16

And before you'd have to send a messenger and he had to go, you know, like the one who went from North Africa to animatic and asked him a question in in America, I don't know the answer. He said What am I supposed to tell my people? He said tell him in the Malik said he doesn't notice

00:29:17--> 00:29:21

instead of going all that distance now we just have to call the score and he said no.

00:29:22--> 00:29:24

No needs to get upset. Okay.

00:29:27--> 00:29:33

So we have all of this available to us notice and then we'll find one time he was discussing

00:29:34--> 00:29:49

because some people believe also that ignorance is an excuse. Ignorance is an excuse that if you are ignorance, Allah subhanaw taala will not hold you responsible for the error that you make. And in just in general there is some aspects of it.

00:29:51--> 00:29:55

But you know, if I am said that Allah Subhana Allah God has given people the ability.

00:29:57--> 00:29:59

He bases his argument on some goods, and he says

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

They will be held responsible for what they are capable of knowing

00:30:05--> 00:30:09

not just what they know but what they are capable of knowing.

00:30:11--> 00:30:17

Because if you refuse to get knowledge, then now it's not simply case that you didn't know something.

00:30:18--> 00:30:25

Yes, it's possible that you could study for years and still not know something. But if you yourself decided you don't want the knowledge,

00:30:26--> 00:30:38

then you are like the Christian is a balling you think all the time without is not going to hold the Christians responsible for the fact that they fail to get knowledge and see that the way that they're going was wrong.

00:30:41--> 00:30:45

So if you're not using your means to get the knowledge, don't think that you're going to be safe.

00:30:46--> 00:30:55

Don't think that you are going to be protected because of the fact that you are ignorant of these facts and so therefore, you're not going to be held responsible.

00:30:57--> 00:31:07

Like almost none Watada shows us about people in the hell fire. In one place on this run with Alice's Apollo localness now owner

00:31:08--> 00:31:17

of how the fire Masada says and they will say these are the people in the hellfire. And they will say If only we had been listening,

00:31:18--> 00:31:24

or hearing and or reasoning, we will not be among the companions of the blaze of the hellfire.

00:31:27--> 00:31:31

There's no this comes in two forms. One is the revelation from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:31:32--> 00:31:34

And if the revelation is clear,

00:31:36--> 00:31:42

and it has not been adulterated in any way, and it is clear, then it's just a matter of receiving it.

00:31:44--> 00:31:48

If we hear this now we just have to hear and listen to it and apart.

00:31:50--> 00:32:06

However other matters or the revelation has not reached us clearly. Then also we have our intellect and even a human being from his intellect can see and can understand that there's no value in worshipping anyone other than God.

00:32:09--> 00:32:19

Allah subhana wa tada describes those people who follow the hell up and IE those people who refuse to submit to Allah subhanaw taala and they follow whatever they find themselves.

00:32:20--> 00:32:30

Whatever sounds good to them, who unfortunately nowadays if you look at some are atheists and agnostics, and secularists these are considered some of the leading thinkers in the world.

00:32:31--> 00:32:38

And unfortunately Muslims also look up to them even though sometimes their philosophy is completely against Islam.

00:32:39--> 00:32:41

Allah subhana wa tada says

00:32:42--> 00:32:53

All right, America ala Whoa. Una de joaquina taxable under federal homeless mono you afternoon. In whom?

00:32:55--> 00:33:38

But whom above you Sabina, Allah subhana wa tada says, Do you see such a one as takes towards God his own passions or impulse? Are you possibly a disposer affairs for him? Or do you actually think the most of them listen or understand they only like cattle need they are worse astray in their path. So let's not have a toddler saying that they are worse astray I mean that they have less understanding than cattle. And if you think about it, with all that almost none with Allah has given them of ability to understand. And then they go and commit COVID and sherkin denialists nanodots even exists, because cattle are much more much more intelligent than these people.

00:33:40--> 00:33:51

And if you use all these means to come to such a conclusion that even goes against what's your own nuts even knows to be true. Allah subhanaw taala says these people are more straight.

00:33:53--> 00:34:05

And this is by the way, one of the first means by which your cellphone tries to come in to deceive people, because of a shutdown can block the person between him and knowledge that he can guide him anywhere.

00:34:07--> 00:34:10

Because knowledge is limited. Enjoy your time. rote knowledge is the light.

00:34:11--> 00:34:17

If you don't have the lights, you are in darkness. If you are in darkness, someone can take you anywhere.

00:34:18--> 00:34:20

So if you refuse to get the knowledge,

00:34:21--> 00:34:27

if you refuse to get the knowledge, you are going to be in darkness, you're going to be in

00:34:29--> 00:34:32

it's not the coincidence of the Arabic word for

00:34:33--> 00:34:39

a lay person. And unleaded prison army comes from the same root as the word for blind

00:34:40--> 00:34:51

because he is really blind. He cannot see he cannot understand what he's supposed to do, because he has no knowledge. So the one without norms is like a blind person.

00:34:53--> 00:34:57

A blind person is going to try to lead themselves throughout life without

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

returning to those people of knowledge.

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

In turning to the sources of knowledge, then it would be hard to imagine this is going to be on a path, which is the path that we are seeking from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:35:12--> 00:35:24

Among the dangers of ignorance, or as I alluded to, number one, the person will not know what what is the right action to take, he will not know what it is that he's supposed to do what he's not supposed to do,

00:35:26--> 00:35:34

he will not recognize the straight path from the other guests, chiffon is calling on these other passes, he has no knowledge, he will not recognize his path as opposed to

00:35:37--> 00:35:53

secondly, also without noise, the person may go to an extreme, and the religion and going to an extreme in the religion is also incorrect. And in fact, actually, the bullying the Christians, or of the religion, you know, they like to refer to Muslims as extremists.

00:35:55--> 00:35:58

Or although religion is based on the students part of it.

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

Because it's all based on the fact that you take a human being, and you raise him way above where he belongs, he is a normal Prophet, sent by God. Yes, he deserves great respect is deserves to be listened to. But they went to an extreme that raised him to the position of God and so that he is equal to that. So actually all the religion is based on extremes.

00:36:25--> 00:36:26

Because extremes

00:36:27--> 00:36:38

and in the same way Muslims that they do not have knowledge, they also fall into the same trap falling into, they don't know what are the limits to believe about the chef,

00:36:39--> 00:36:49

or even about.com about jihad, for example, they don't know what are the limits. And so therefore, they go to an extreme and again, good intention.

00:36:50--> 00:36:56

If you're not turning to knowledge, then good intention may not be may not be enough to.

00:37:01--> 00:37:14

In essence, what we see and this is something all of the scholars agree upon, is that there is some knowledge, some level knowledge that is far gain. For every Muslim who has the ability to receive

00:37:18--> 00:37:24

some level of knowledge This is for time and obligatory upon every individual's

00:37:25--> 00:37:29

scars starting with obviously the proper belief about God.

00:37:30--> 00:37:54

Someone has to have knowledge about Allah subhana wa Tada. And what does it mean to believe in all this and with that, and in fact, one of the shows one of the conditions of the Shahada, one of the conditions or the prerequisites of this era being acceptable to Allah subhanaw taala is that it must be based on the proper understanding of what it means even

00:37:57--> 00:38:08

some scholars refer to a verse in the Quran, and which Allah subhana wa tada says, follow them and Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, know that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah.

00:38:09--> 00:38:31

Then the knowledge starts first, even with respect to the testimony, it was properly done well in more meaningful manner. And then the verse continues and seek refuge for your sin, and for the believing men and the believable. So even before the action of the party has quoted this verse in the party, to show that before action there has to be known.

00:38:32--> 00:38:35

Because your your goal is to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:38:36--> 00:38:40

So how are you going to know the action you want to take whether or not is consistent with your goal

00:38:42--> 00:38:54

doesn't make any sense to do actions. And then afterwards, you find out all they weren't consistent with my goal. This is no one planned like this. No CEO would plan later.

00:38:55--> 00:39:10

First, you've made sure that the action you're going to do is consistent with what you claim your goals. If it is consistent, if it is proper, then you go ahead and do it. You don't do it first, and then try to find out later, oh, was this right or wrong?

00:39:12--> 00:39:30

Especially if you had the means you had the time you had the means to see and try to ask if it is proper if you don't have the knowledge yourself. But don't go and do a deed. When you know you don't have the knowledge of whether it's right or wrong. And then try to find out later and then expect a lesson or Tata would just forgive you.

00:39:32--> 00:39:33

Because now You're acting like a body.

00:39:35--> 00:39:39

You're acting you may claim that your intention is whatever but you're acting like body

00:39:40--> 00:39:41

rocking it out.

00:39:43--> 00:39:47

And you make this draw over and over again to Allah subhanho wa Taala to save you from that.

00:39:50--> 00:39:55

So there is some level of knowledge, as I said, that is obligatory upon every Muslim.

00:39:56--> 00:39:58

And as I said, when we make this graph

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

you don't

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

Just make a draw for something and then don't try to follow the steps. So, you have to seek the nose you have to get launched. And as I said, there is a minimum amount that is obligatory upon everyone belief about all this kind of without and about the Profit System. And the other aspects of belief, you have to have at least a basic understanding of these things.

00:40:22--> 00:40:33

You have to have a decent basic understanding of these things. And in fact, there's someone to the Muslim is serious, and he goes and reads the Quran. And he reads about the angels, and he reads about the messengers, and he reads about how

00:40:34--> 00:40:42

it would be inconceivable to me that t is never taken the time to know, you know, what are these things we're believing in? What does it? What does it mean to believe in this and

00:40:44--> 00:40:47

that would be a real sign that she's not taking this issue of knowledge.

00:40:48--> 00:40:50

Obviously, every Muslim has to pray,

00:40:52--> 00:40:53

every Muslim has to fast

00:40:54--> 00:41:06

and so far, so, these also these things, here, there is some level of basic knowledge everyone has to have. And then some things as well as on some people, because of their particular situation.

00:41:07--> 00:41:21

For example, if someone is married, then he has to know what are some of the principles of marriage? has to know how he's supposed to interact with his wife? What are the rights? What are duties? What is the best way of behaving? So

00:41:23--> 00:41:26

if someone is running a business, he has to know what are that Hamelin.

00:41:28--> 00:41:33

Someone has money, he has to know, what are his responsibilities and respectable money.

00:41:35--> 00:41:48

So there is a level of knowledge which is obligatory upon everyone. And that knowledge just doesn't come to you. You have to seek to you have to learn facts about socialism, has told us told me for either to Allah,

00:41:50--> 00:41:54

seeking knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim.

00:41:55--> 00:42:03

And I think we spoke before about the fact that if you look at the headings of our system, when he's talking about knowledge, he's always talking about going out and seeking,

00:42:05--> 00:42:07

taking the steps to get

00:42:09--> 00:42:41

as in that case, to the habit of tolerable and seeking knowledge going out and getting those another had is the process of them also speaking about knowledge. And in this time, also telling us one of the important benefits and knowledge. But again, showing that someone has to go out and try to get this last ball assessement good. Man, silica Turrican yelton el tiempo Sufi Allah Salallahu Turrican energyne. It's whoever follows a path that goes out in the path in order to seek knowledge and obey Allah will make easy for him due to its past.

00:42:45--> 00:42:47

So by getting this knowledge,

00:42:48--> 00:42:51

one of the benefits and one of the important aspects of this knowledge

00:42:52--> 00:42:55

is that you learn the correct beliefs

00:42:57--> 00:42:58

about the listener without of

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

course as you get deeper into knowledge. And so now I want to get beyond just the minimum level, and talk about even going further and to get noticed,

00:43:09--> 00:43:12

the more in depth a person's knowledge,

00:43:13--> 00:43:16

the greater the effect that it will have on the person.

00:43:17--> 00:43:54

Take, for example, the question of belief in Allah subhanaw taala. The one who knows this, in general has a vague idea about the list. And I know Tyler, I mean, it's sufficient idea to make him a Muslim. And to keep them within the fold of Islam. If you compare that to the person who knows almost none Watada by his names and attributes, and so therefore turns to almost final data by hands and attributes. And is always aware of these different names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala, the knowledge level, the belief level, and the effects upon the person will be very different between these two.

00:43:55--> 00:44:07

We just spent a number of lectures discussing pseudo syntax here. even slower confessio The more you understand it, the better you understand it, the more effect it might have on you in the salon.

00:44:09--> 00:44:12

And so therefore, the more effective may have on you outside the salon.

00:44:13--> 00:44:19

In fact, the more you understand it, the more earnest and the more sincere you will be when you make this job.

00:44:20--> 00:44:28

And so therefore, the more honest and the more sincere you are making the job and shall have the response from Allison, I know what data would be even greater.

00:44:30--> 00:44:36

So the question of knowledge, and it will have a great effect on the quality.

00:44:37--> 00:44:54

Not even just the quantity or the identification of what's actually the job but even the quality. the quality of the one who prays and he knows what he's saying in the prayer, and he can reflect upon it. And he understands what he's saying will be different than the one who goes up there and doesn't have any clue

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

the quality of the person who's talking and understands what's going on with that.

00:45:00--> 00:45:08

Allah, and the Prophet says Willem has said about fasting, and what he's trying to get out of the past will be different from the one who does not have them.

00:45:10--> 00:45:18

So, we see that the quality from beliefs and the quality from the actions and the effect that will have on the person will differ according to, according to knowledge.

00:45:19--> 00:45:22

The most obvious case of identifying what are the righteous needs

00:45:24--> 00:45:28

and recognizing what is the path This is also based on knowledge,

00:45:29--> 00:45:37

to recognize the path, the straight path, as opposed to the path of heresies and innovations has to be based on

00:45:39--> 00:45:43

to identify what is hot out from what is haram has to be based on.

00:45:44--> 00:45:58

So, when we were making this drives Allah subhanaw taala to guide us to the straight path. As we said, the fourth aspect of this guidance is concept of guidance. He said there's many aspects to it is to see what is the state.

00:46:00--> 00:46:04

So we have to take the effort of getting that knowledge of what is that sector.

00:46:06--> 00:46:10

And obviously, also to be protected from a *storm

00:46:11--> 00:46:14

is also a great aspect to note

00:46:15--> 00:46:25

is as we just alluded to, Stefan tries to deceive people, tries to put doubts in their minds. They're the easiest way to get rid of doubts, by the way is by orange.

00:46:27--> 00:46:44

He goes to someone for example, who's studying with orientalist, you take one of our brothers who are college age, and decides to take a course with someone at the University on his love for someone going maybe to the Internet, and just getting all sorts of strange things from the internet.

00:46:46--> 00:47:14

These things actually, if he's studying Islam with a non Muslim teachers, or going maybe to some suspects sources on the internet, it's easy for these things to put doubts in the person's mind can read something about the Quran, that you know, based on Greek language, or whatever, and this word means great doesn't mean habitants didn't know or whatever. If he doesn't have knowledge, these doubts could be in his mind, and he doesn't know he's clueless as to what is the truth.

00:47:16--> 00:47:24

If his certainty about Allah subhana wa tada can be shaken, then definitely, his attachment to Islam will be weak.

00:47:25--> 00:47:29

Because Islam requires dedication, and also sacrifice.

00:47:31--> 00:47:37

But you're not going to be willing to dedicate and sacrifice for something if you don't have real certainty.

00:47:39--> 00:47:42

And the main solution for that is by getting large.

00:47:44--> 00:48:08

Most of these inner claims by the orientalist and so forth, I don't care if they're a PhD, I don't care if they're writing the best, supposedly the best journal, most of these claims that they come up with can be answered by anyone who has basic understanding of Islam and has just studied, it doesn't take a scholar to see many times where they're all facing where they're coming up with the strangest claims about Islam.

00:48:11--> 00:48:21

So the individual, by the way, who makes this draw sincerely, the individual who is in fact has sincerely, he should be someone who is very anxious to get noticed.

00:48:24--> 00:48:37

Because if he's not someone who's very anxious to get knowledge, that means there's something wrong with him and his relationship to a better because as we said, right here and tell us about the most shocking part of this is to learn and to know, what is the state that

00:48:39--> 00:48:48

part of this guidance is to know and recognize what is the secret? And then you come down here and you ask, well, Asana tries to keep you from being among the Bali.

00:48:49--> 00:48:51

So by nature, actually the one

00:48:52--> 00:49:01

who's making this job properly in facilitar, Allah subhanho wa Taala he should be someone who is also desiring and wanting to get proper knowledge.

00:49:03--> 00:49:09

Now, when getting all these details, the two very important aspects about obtaining knowledge.

00:49:12--> 00:49:15

first of them is to be sincere,

00:49:16--> 00:49:17

while obtaining all

00:49:20--> 00:49:26

sincerity and obtaining nose, and secondly is applying that knowledge that you have obtained.

00:49:30--> 00:49:31

Now, the first point,

00:49:32--> 00:49:37

I think the meaning of this, why are you getting knowledge? Why are you seeking of

00:49:38--> 00:49:52

obviously goes back to what she said? Yeah, can Abu yaquina Budo your goal? The goal is to worship Allah subhanaw taala you're declaring it that you're trying to worship Allah subhanaw taala and all the others.

00:49:53--> 00:49:57

So actually, this penny of knowledge in itself, by the way is an act of worship.

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

The goal behind it is to worship Allah subhanaw taala more.

00:50:04--> 00:50:14

So the intention behind it has to be a pure intention sincere solely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and to worship God.

00:50:16--> 00:50:29

Now, obviously with any act of worship like salonpas or whatever, with any act of worship, this is true, right? And the Malema Lavinia reaction based on intention, you have to do

00:50:30--> 00:50:39

all of the actions sincerely for the sake of God. However, there are some how do you wish the polycephalum has particularly not in the case of knowledge,

00:50:41--> 00:50:46

because knowledge, Islamic knowledge, especially in the past, maybe not so much nowadays.

00:50:47--> 00:50:57

But Islamic knowledge was also a key to respect among the people being in a place of dignity, maybe even being in a place of authority or position of power.

00:50:59--> 00:51:07

So therefore, it is easy for someone that maybe what he's seeking that knowledge is not seeking it solely for the sake of others.

00:51:08--> 00:51:38

Maybe he's seeking it for some other purpose. So there's more than one Heidi's info session in which is warned us about seeking knowledge and particularly, then we have to make sure that it is solely for the sake of eliciting data. For example, in one of the many headings of this nature of promises, and instead mentality, my man in my lobby, he was Hola, they Italian lemahieu, elusive rbdr of the minute dunya la mia just out of jealousy on the piano.

00:51:40--> 00:51:54

Whoever learned some knowledge by which the face of the pleasure of Allah is sought, yet he does not learn it except to get a portion of this world, then you will not even experience the sense of paradise on David's rich.

00:51:56--> 00:52:15

So it's very important that we understand why we're getting this knowledge. We're not giving it to get any kind of position among the people or to get anything of this dunya. But we are getting it for the sake of fulfilling our bore, we should be able to spend without this knowledge that we get should help us towards that goal of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala.

00:52:18--> 00:52:41

And secondly, as I said, we have to make sure that we apply that knowledge, we have to make sure that we apply the knowledge. Now with respect to applying the nose, movie, I am one of those aspects of mobile VR, as we said, is not just the fact that they didn't apply the nose. They didn't apply the truth, even though they're looking at it. But it was attitude towards the truth, their indifference towards it, and their arrogance over.

00:52:43--> 00:52:50

So someone might know the truth. But he might commit some weakness have some sin, even though he knows that Islam.

00:52:51--> 00:53:25

That, of course, is obviously not good, not something to be solved. But the real aspect of a moldoveanu aim is that one knows the knowledge. And he doesn't care really whether he's applying tonight, if it gets to that level, or he knows the knowledge is different, that he knows it, and he wants to apply it and he wishes to apply it. But he has some weakness, he may commit a sin he usually if it's that case, he will feel sorry that he committed the sin could not be happy with himself that he's committing the sin. But these people

00:53:27--> 00:53:40

are people who know the knowledge but they don't really care whether or not they are applying that knowledge. It's not important. So it's a matter of attitude towards the north and the public system on this point.

00:53:41--> 00:53:44

He has told us that Toronto

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

has told us that the Quran is either an argument for or against you.

00:53:56--> 00:53:58

So there's no third party here.

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

As long as

00:54:01--> 00:54:09

the Quran is either going to be approved for someone for the Quran is going to be a proof against Allah subhanho wa Taala similarly,

00:54:11--> 00:54:18

when zero minute karate, Maho Civil War, I mean what is 00

00:54:20--> 00:54:29

and we sat down on the planet which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe and it greases the wrong doors and nothing but loss.

00:54:30--> 00:54:44

So someone sits with a client either increases him or it decreases. Now the words it will either increase his faith and give them blessings or do a cousin greater harm due to an addictive it

00:54:45--> 00:54:50

in the massage said that the problem will come on the Day of Resurrection

00:54:52--> 00:55:00

is will intercede for his companion and it will be a guide to paradise. Not only is it the

00:55:00--> 00:55:01

guide in this life,

00:55:03--> 00:55:12

it is Hoda and this life, but the majority saying that it will intercede for its companion, the one who applied it and it will be a guide for him to Paris

00:55:14--> 00:55:22

or to come as a witness against him. The problem will come as a witness against him and drive him to the helpline.

00:55:24--> 00:55:32

So leave the common guide us to paradise portal comm and drive you to the health plan. And don't think okay, I just won't read the plan. So therefore,

00:55:33--> 00:55:49

I'll be safer, because then you fall into this category. You have a plan. We have the problem, we have to read it and we have to do our best to understand it and to apply another How do you propose social and said let the Zulu Kadima Genie on the piano?

00:55:50--> 00:56:28

They use Allah and the prophet SAW Selim said this, the two feet of God the servant, or the human will not move on the Day of Judgment until he is asked about four matters. And one of them was like me, he led me lucky. And about his knowledge, what actions did he do with respect to it? So you will be asked on the day of judgment about your knowledge, and how did you apply that knowledge. So in one case, we have the Quran itself will be judged against us, we all have the Quran in front of us, we all have access to the Quran.

00:56:29--> 00:56:32

We don't want the Quran to come on the day of judgment and be

00:56:34--> 00:56:35

driving us to the hellfire.

00:56:37--> 00:56:43

So we had better tunes to the Quran now, and read it and understand it and apply it.

00:56:45--> 00:56:52

So it will be an intercessor for us, and will be a guide for us to Agenda not driving us to the helper.

00:56:53--> 00:57:13

And we have to remember that will not be excused just because we haven't learned. If you have the ability to learn, we have to go out and get that knowledge. And we have to make sure we have avoided their mistake for balling. And then we have to make sure that we do our best sincerely to take that knowledge and try to apply.

00:57:15--> 00:57:50

At least at the very least have that intention to get the knowledge and have the intention to play so that we are truly not just in the words in the slot that we are truly intelligent doing our best showing almost $100 good we are doing our best to avoid the path of googling and eyeballing. and hoping all this data will help us more and more to avoid this. So as I said when you make job and that drive, feeling and earnestness is in your heart for what you're asking for, then inshallah Listen, I know that God will not turn you away.

00:57:52--> 00:58:12

And seller will not turn you away. But the sign of your earnestness is that you're doing your best to live up to your chest. So listen with data when all of a sudden ricotta sees that from you, Allah subhanaw taala will increase you and increase you and that thing that you are asking for from Allah subhanho wa Taala and I think this will help to end because at the end of the day
