Hello Today we have Mr. Rosell giving a speech about the man
and who is a believer? What is the man and who is a believer? And inshallah I request all the brothers to stay silent during the lecture. I would like no comments during the lecture and we can
use that little sandwich although no turns over shaking.
Delay was it as was Mr. Mr. signum Hamad
Lula silica Sharona Mohammedan Abdo.
Now, I'm not in the mood to give a lecture.
So we've heard that before. But I think this time
is not a physical
ailment, but is more of a mental ailment.
this is related to some things that have developed since I gave a session for the women yesterday
session was a
simple discussion of some of the
some of the fifth principles related to women. And in particular, we discussed one, one
in detail, that's all that we had time for, we discussed the issue of the woman who was menstruating or having having postnatal bleeding and setting the foot on resetting the foot on or touching the forearm. And I spent over half an hour
Personally, I guess, and in discussing all of the evidences related to that point, and coming to
However, apparently, some things have been spread about what they said. And some of them probably are.
And taking statement, Janice beyond what I said.
And some of them seem to be pure fabrication about what I said. So I would like to ask this brother here
to stay, and what is heard what has been conveyed to him about what I said in the lecture, so that I may comment, and then
if I'm in the mood to lecture, we will.
I want to see if I have a backup lecture in
case I'm not in the mood.
I just think conveyed to me through several sources.
Certain things I don't know, one of them was one of them was that
either this was an interpretation or the shape suggests that that women were deficient. And for that reason, they were going to go to Hellfire, and they were deficient in their mind. And for that reason, they're going to go to Hellfire out of someplace, which I've heard is that he did not select many things unclear and about 90% of the women were upset with the lessor and other things was that
he the questions or the the issues, there was so it left and in people's actual I've gotten so far as to his doubts in people's face.
This is about it all if
you'd like to comment.
Okay, and let me let me just say something. I don't want this to be
any different entirely
of this nature. But
the two tapes I expected or that exists
Have that lecture
and let me say, first of all, the the headings for example, talking about the deficiency of the woman with respect to a locker, I did not even mention that earlier in the lecture, you will not find it mentioned at all. And in fact, in my notes,
I had that Hadith with a lengthy explanation of that Hadith by shift of religion does, in which he refused the idea that this implies any shortcoming on the part of the woman. And this is something that almost hanworth, Allah has ordained for them. And it does not mean that as individual, some women could deploy a seed, many men in many different aspects of life, but because of
due to lack of time, I didn't even bother or I shouldn't say anything, but I didn't get around even to discussing that. I didn't mention that it. And I don't believe even at any time, in the lecture, you will hear me saying anything about anyone being in the hellfire.
And then the camera camera was there. But I don't remember mentioning anything about anyone
being in the Hellfire whatsoever. So if anyone is spreading that kind of thing, or conveying that same thing.
What they're saying is not true. They should not they should refrain from saying this. And if anyone somehow heard those words that were not said,
and Mr. Lawson, Hannah was as good as
especially the question, I guess the issue that bothered me the most was the question of attending college. And I guess we discussed work.
We didn't discuss working
more than one question. I just briefly touched upon work. I mean, you said you send you send 100 questions to the to the speaker, and then you get upset that he didn't answer the question in the detail that
that you want. And there's some things that that a speaker should be able to assume, on behalf of the of the audience. If you speak down to the audience and talk to them, as if you know, nothing, they'll get upset, when if you assume that they know something, and you don't say it, then they get upset again. And it's like the Islamic books put out in poor quality. And people say, look at the poor quality of these books, or they put out the nice quality, and then they have to charge a higher price. So they say look at the higher price on these books, and
on with respect to college education, which I said,
paraphrasing, and basically what they said is very similar to what I mentioned in the
first lecture, I
don't even remember what that lecture was about. But somehow I talked about this.
The impediments to Islam in the West.
I said, This woman is studying, you know, just to get a piece of paper
when she should not do. And if she's just telling me just to get that piece of paper to say I have a bachelor's degree in, you know, pre prehistoric Colombian civilization. And there's no point to that piece of paper. And in order for the woman to get it, she has to go and mix with men and be out of the house. And I absolutely encourage I don't recommend it even for the brothers. If they don't have
I'm sure all of you know what kind of sickness and what kind of things and going to college
can lead to. I was teaching in a university and I left it because of the kind of fitna
that occurs there.
So that is what I said. And then they said, No, suppose your husband died 1520 years, you use that as security. And I said, Well, this doesn't make much sense because I can assure you, you know, if you have a passion to do 20 or 10, or even five now, even three years ago, it's not gonna be worth much when you go into the
market marketplace. Honestly, there's a case of necessity to
study for some reason or woman is studying and the purpose and the goal of this study is something that the Islamic community needs or the Islamic community benefit from. And obviously, there's nothing wrong with that kind of study and I clearly not even discuss that issue. Obviously the sister is not supported by anyone and she has a family and she needs to work and obviously she is allowed to work given first that doesn't mean she goes out and takes any job, if she can find but she is obviously allowed to work
under those circumstances.
And in the note it says that about one deficiency in the Hellfire was probably from today's lecture, but she says I'm not sure. Well,
personally, I'm sorry. Well, I know we look like we sound like. But the one with the louder voice is me doing with a very quiet and polite voice is Riyadh. So and if you heard it in such a way that it was 38 drums, that was probably in a very nice way that was.
So he said, you go into the Hellfire in a nice way to give lectures.
And Barry Cameron was quick to point out that he did not say that, and I'm sure he did not
know brothers well enough.
that's the signal of Austin of 1996. Yesterday's
I hope this clarifies some merit. And to be frank.
Maybe it's being unfair, but it is being Frank. And as I said before, I am more than happy to be frank,
this kind of thing often are usually comes from the side of the system, for whatever reason.
And if this kind of problem
usually comes from the side of the sisters, where things are completely misinterpreted, misunderstood and spread, incorrect. So I must advise all of us, and including myself and the brothers here, but especially the sisters, that any when it comes to passing on what someone said, make sure you press on what he said, or what she said. And don't add anything to it, don't add your interpretation to it don't add any corollaries or lemons or whatever it is, you can derive from that thing.
Because there is a principle that the conclusion
is not a person's method. In other words, any any statement a and you may conclude statement be from that, but you cannot ascribe that conclusion to me. Because there might be some overriding principle that would lead me and not to go from point A to point B. But in your mind, you're just assuming that, well, I said a so therefore, I must also go to point B. So all of us inshallah, and this is one of our problems. And this is one of the impediments to practicing Islam. And this is one of the priorities of Dell. And this is one of the situations related to assimilation and reclusiveness. And if we are
kind of combining everything into the last lecture, and we are not dealing with one another in a proper manner, we are willing to, and we see this nationally, internationally, we're willing to support one another, we're willing to make conclusions, or extend a personal statement when he or she, in fact.
So, as I said, I hope this clarifies this matter if I
if I hurt anybody's feeling,
apologize for that, if anyone
understood what I said.
I'm sorry about that.
If I sound very harsh,
that's my electric voice.
I mean, you can ask anyone who knows me. And if we're sitting at a table for dinner, I'm not going to be the person leading the conversation.
I'll be eating my food and letting everybody else talk as much as we want.
before you give a lecture, and when you give a speech, you could give it in a monotonic way you could give it in such a way that you know, it's not going to affect the people whatsoever, but there's no purpose behind that.
And also, when you give a lecture, you should be giving things which are from your heart and when you speak from your heart, basically to a large audience, obviously there's going to be some
I don't know what more to say about that, that issue and I print a lot
wrong whatever mistakes and whatever Evil has come out of that lecture that inshallah Allah subhanaw taala will guide us through
and putting into that and and bring our hearts together.
So now what should we do about this?
Because we know this problem
this issue, and in many brothers who draw or
the difference between having a non English speaker as opposed to an Arab person,
you won't get those kinds of mistakes.
You know, many boys were dragged into them to be frank and nastiness in front of me, this has caused me some kind of hardship between some of the brothers.
the way things happen,
not between myself and others, but in between.
and this is the one who's responsible for all of these hardships, the one who's responsible for the bad feelings that are in the hearts of some of those now towards one another, all of this, then all of this responsibility falls upon those people who number one will miss conveying
what i what i said, or adding something
to what I said, what I said, hamdulillah the tapes are available, and I'm sure that if you listen to the tapes,
I'm sure if you listen to the tape, you will
and you will see that inshallah
and inshallah, I hope what I said was correct. Of course, if a woman is kind of
yelling at me claiming this kind of thing, that Muslim woman should be immunized at home doing nothing and leave everything for the Jewish and Christian woman. Obviously, I might respond to that, and not the most
polite way, and I have the right to I mean, if she's going to make a statement like that, towards me, I have the right to respond. But I think I kept my cool during most of the time.
I think that's enough.
For now, oh, I'm done, I have another excuse for a poor quality lecture.
And it first was a headache and the nausea,
then just the headache. And now the mental fatigue and weren't there visiting Texas often times.
I'm going to try to go through this. And frankly, really, my mind is not in kind of a frame of mind. It's really in the mood to make lecture right now. But I will run shell into
the lecture topic
is, what is a man?
And who is a believer?
Someone has to be sitting here. I mean, you can't just leave a brother all by himself in front of the masses, especially after what has happened in the past.
me this question of what is it?
Who is the believer?
What is Cofer or disbelief?
And who is a believer? And to be frank, these are some of the most important questions that anyone could add.
And in particular, they are some of the most important questions that a person should ask on behalf of his own worker.
And everyone else should be concerned with the idea of whether or not he is a believer.
Is someone Yeah, and he hasn't even hasn't even reached the point that he doesn't even ask himself whether or not he's a believer, and what is faith? And what does it really mean to be a believer? And if this
is already a very bad thing,
and if you haven't even bothered ever to ask yourself, you know, what does it really mean to be bleeding? Am I believer
and if you're not even concerned enough about your end to ask yourself whether or not you're truly a believer, this is a very, very sad, sad friend.
And in the history of Islam, actually,
as I said, because of the importance of this topic, this is one of the first
topics that came up in the Muslim nation.
And unfortunately, it was one of the first topics that led to division among the Muslims.
And the reason and we see clearly in in this case,
and the reason it led to to division
in this some, some groups
and they came up with their own concept of Eman and cover
The current system they developed are not exactly correct, according to the karasuma.
And especially on this issue, and when you make mistakes on this issue about what is faith and what is unsafe, as some people call it, proof of disbelief, I don't know what's the good word in English.
And the ramifications of being mistaken on this point for yourself as an individual,
and for the nation, or the for the community as a whole, are very great.
And especially I need the extreme.
One extreme was to give a very narrow definition for for men.
And it's to the point that if anyone commits
a grave sin,
and if anyone commits, what is known as a veto, or a major sin that he falls outside of the scope of its time is no longer and
so they start so this group starts declaring almost everybody
that extreme is very dangerous for the community as a whole, because it causes division,
a great deal of vision. The other extreme,
is very dangerous for the community as a whole, but in particular, for the individual. It is extremely dangerous.
And that's the other extreme where virtually everybody becomes a moment everybody is a believer.
And regardless of what you say, or do,
and to the point that some some people, and again, we can show from
what they're saying is not correct, but somebody will deadlift, if someone says lie lie in the law. And if someone gives testimonial, testimony of faith, I don't know Allah and Allah, when he will be then he is a believer, and he will enter Paradise, regardless of anything that's used.
Even went further than that, and said, if someone Annie knows,
or recognizes the existence of Allah Subhana, WA, tada
and there's a lot of things in my notes that I'm going to have to
get now. And he this, this concept of what is amen? And what is a true believer and what are the characteristics of the true believers? And it is a very important concepts because we know that the faith or Eman is the separating line between
being in the Hellfire forever.
And being in
I will leave it at that I will not go into further detail. I don't, no one can wait until you can go into further detail. I know. That's part of the process to speak. And sometimes you do that maybe you explain it in more detail later. Also defenses I've become now.
And some of the important questions related to a man is witness to a man and who has a sibling.
And what are the essential components of Amen.
Let me start off by talking about what is the opposite
Because some people they the the instead of deriving any their conclusions from the promise, sometimes they kind of get stuck on the linguistic meaning of a term.
And I'm sorry to say this, but we saw an example of this last night in one of the comments last night. And sometimes people get stuck on a linguistic meaning of a term
and they forget to live to see how the Quran and Sunnah has used that term. Because the Quran Sunnah, sometimes and he defines terms of gifts terms and the different shades related to their linguistic meaning but different shades to them.
So for example, in an
the transition if you want it to translate, translated, I mean not translated, but if you want it to define it with another Arabic word is
what's the meaning of associate
y'all name this way.
Okay It means any sense or recognition or any you could almost you could also say bleep all these terms you could say some part of
the opposite of this is a tech deal and it can deny something to reject something not to accept, okay.
So, if you take the word amen and you say that linguistically means
any issue a sense of something you accept something
we see here right away with any the Quranic concept of what a man is about is not the same thing simply as believing in something in your heart and accepting. This is not enough.
Eman is not simply and believing in something in your heart and accepting it is true or recognizing it as true.
And Eman is not the opposite of effective.
But inner is the opposite of
and is to be projected as a technique but a man is the opposite of perfect. And copper can take many forms.
And if someone could recognize in his heart for example, that Allah subhana wa Taala exists and knows very well but Allah subhanho wa Taala exists and knows it is no one worthy of worship other than Allah subhana wa tada but that person refuses to
submit to Allah subhana wa Tada
This is a kind of cool
this is the kind of cover and it was demonstrated or shown by so fun.
You he was asked to speak to Adam about it.
And he refused. You think I said God doesn't know that Allah subhanaw taala exists.
Even if he had been asked Allah subhana wa tada
to give him a stipend until the day is given.
Even a surfer knows that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the rod is the only one where the worship but Stefan refuse to submit.
And because of this refusal to submit and it is complete refusal
this is one way of this is one way of showing that you have no Eman whatsoever.
So the first aspect that we see about imen is that when we talk about Eman, we're not talking about it from a linguistic point of view. Eman linguistically has the meaning to it. One of them is a statement other related aspects.
But when we talk about a man with the state, we're talking about death or a man as described as defined
in the Quran are similar.
And if we study it, we'll see that there are three components to
the three components of
And is for someone to have correct and to imagine you must have all of these components. The first one is the first component is belief in the heart,
or at the
end, belief in the heart.
The second aspect is profession,
or statements and by the tongue.
And the third aspect are the performance of the deed and by the physical price of the body.
So in an ad is a belief, the status is in the heart.
And this is followed by the statements of faith.
And if is joined with doing the acts which are acts of submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala
as I said, and we're going to go through many,
many things very, very quickly. But let me just talk a little bit about what we mean when we say belief in the heart or as the
as the some of the AMA has described is the statement of the heart and is a statement of the heart This is also what is known as sometimes known as the fatal end.
And it is first time is the recognition in the heart
that there is a creator it is the Lord and that Lord is the only one worthy worship and so forth and all
This aspects should be clear to everyone. However, belief in the heart also includes what are called the actions of the heart,
the actions or the deeds of the heart.
And this is made up of any major components, including any commitment, and voluntary submission and acceptance.
And his exam was in prayer was the scene.
And in this, as we said, in the case of the chiffon
and if the heart just doesn't recognize this to be true, and it has many things that you could recognize and be true smokers, many smokers recognize that smoking is bad for the home.
But that's not the only that's not the key to it.
That's not what Eman is all about.
It is more than just the recognition of the truth. It is the acceptance of the truth and the submission to the truth, the willingness and the desire to follow and implement that truth.
And included also in this category.
And includes the love for the truth and the love of God and the fear of Allah subhana wa Tada. And it is all essential components of Amen, as described by the earliest generation from the from the time of the earliest generation of Muslims.
Now, you should realize that that first and we said the belief in the heart has two components. And the first component is the recognition and the acceptance that there's only one Lord only one created, there's only one worthy of worship.
And this is something
the translation of mankind.
And mankind is born with a natural inclination to accept and understand this truth.
And to recognize that, to recognize this truth, to know that this is true.
And only goes even historically, you know, only those who have, you know, the greatest disease in their hearts will outwardly come out and make statements like no, there's no such thing as God, there's no such thing as a greater power or whatever you want to call it.
And human beings are instinctively
know about the existence of Allah subhanho wa Taala, that proposition is something very close to them, and easy for them to accept.
at the same time, although that proposition is clear to them,
the ramifications of it, and what it means for them in their lives. This is what they're not willing to accept.
And you have to realize this, one of the key points between and dividing a believer from a disbeliever why the Muslims and why they're not Muslim. And those who are convey the truth and they reject it
is not the recognition of what is true.
But it is the acceptance and the love for what that implies in one's life.
And it just believe is no right what this implies in their life, that they have to then submit or they should then submit all the data, they're not free to submit for whatever they want. They're not free to live their life in any way that they want. And that is wireless and Henrik data,
in different places in the Quran is showing us that the key point janni between one of the key points between the believers and the disbelievers is not the understanding or the recognition of what is correct is correct.
But Allah subhana wa tada says they are homeless, but have
they stayed home.
And it has come to them with the truth, but most of them, I guess, are just like the few
and most of them displays they can recognize what is true.
But they don't like the idea that now you want to come to them and say for example that you have to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala you must submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala This means you can go out every Friday, you know drinking dancing, and so what
I was in the hotel one time I don't know why this is different in my mind.
I was in a hotel one time and then woman's Best Buy me I guess boyfriend girlfriend or husband wife, I don't know. And the man said to the woman, well, if you're not going to go out dancing with me tonight, then I'm going to have to go out drinking.
That's the few things you have to do this or that that's that's your life.
that's what they want,
that's why they fall in that way because that's what the delight. If you present them with Islam Muslim can recognize the truth of Laila Halawa, and even the truth of Mohammed, Mohammed.
But they are not
willing to submit to it. They don't want it in their life, they don't have any love for it.
And this is one of the key aspects of being a believer
is the love for the truth. The love for Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And when we stay and belief in the heart, believes in the heart includes this component out and having love for the truth having the desire the words to submit to it.
And if you claim to be a believer, this is something that you better have in your heart you better look yourself and see I Do I really have the love to have the desire to go out and submit to the food and submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala
This is one of the key signs and even
if you are a true believer and this love in the heart and you listen to what data has shown us any in the Quran, this nerve in the heart for Eman is something and it's special that are given to the believers that Allah subhana wa tada has put in the heart and distinguishes them from the disbelievers. We recorded the first time in which most of the those DNA displays and wrongdoers are addressed. Truth Allah subhanho wa Taala says about the believers
rashidun Allah subhanho wa Taala as the dollar has ended, or has made a few mistakes and has beautified it in your heart.
He's a true believer and is the most beautiful thing in your heart.
If he wants to know what is this concept of beauty brother, basket he didn't mention it last time but he's given a similar talk and he's talking about what is our concept of beauty and is the most beautiful thing for a believer in his heart the most beautiful thing is in
and Allah subhana wa tada has continued with any of you any disbelief and wickedness and disobedience hateful to you.
This is another sign of the of the believer and you discover is something hated by him.
And he just believes something hated by this belief in a first show Allah subhana wa tada does an install to Allah subhana wa tada Allah subhana wa tada created all mankind and bless them with so many blessings. And when they refuse to submit to Him, or they submit in good faith to other things other than Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And he This is something very much hated. If you if you love someone, you love someone in this dunya in this world, you love someone and you see other people harming that person. For example, if you love your wife,
and you see other people talking bad about your wife, or or cheating her or harming her you feel in your heart.
And if your beloved is being hurt
What about when all of the data that is being
inserted or disregarded when the gene the religion of Allah subhana wa tada has been fought against a post and insulted
and how could someone claim to have a man in his heart
when he's willing to accept order? When he sees no reason why he should dislike copper? We hear that we hear that from Muslim.
You know, why should we dislike corporate and dislike disbelievers. And so
what the reason should be because Allah subhanaw taala has good love of the men in our hearts and the spectators for these things.
And events as if we have the correct and the two events.
The second component that we mentioned is the profession and its statements by the tongue. And I will not go into that in detail except according some of the scholars they pointed out that it is inconceivable
it is inconceivable that someone has the two Eman in his heart.
And he loves that and he wants to submit your and he's not willing to openly state this is what I believe in. And this is what I accept. And this is what I stand for.
support of the toe Eman is this profession of the faith the statement of the term the statement of the Shahada to stay the same I said one bla bla bla bla
and finally we have
the third component which is
acting upon that belief, and you could do this you perform this, this is a component of
it, we don't have time to discuss differences thinking historically about whether it's an IF components of a man or not,
let us just stick with the majority opinion that can be proven across India. And that is that
any disease that you perform,
and he these are part of Eman, they are part of the man. So, in fact, every good deed that you perform, or every good deed, I should say, is considered part of
the process described, removing a harmful, harmful item from the road is a branch of
every act of submission to the list of Hanwha Dara is a part of Amen.
So, and when you have the belief, when you have the belief in your heart and when we say belief in the heart, it is the true correct belief in the heart the correct Eman in the sight of Allah subhana wa tada is the is the belief in your heart that drives you to act based on that belief.
It is not some kind of dry, theoretical academic discussion, let's prove in order to exist in the laws Lord, you know, QED and all that stuff.
And it's not.
That's not what it's about.
But it's something that affects you, it affects your heart
and affects your person.
And it makes you move and makes you act based on that image based on that feeling in the heart. And this is any distro and
there might be some questions related to that later. So
let me just make one for one
of the early
as the early
You have two American brothers in up here
showing you that you want to learn English in your country.
The head we'll stick with that the game was to have an umbrella of custody
what he meant
and he answered and it was stated in the URL. There's action I haven't
intention and year and a sinner following the way of the center
and continually said this is because in then is only a statement without action when it is displeased
if it is a statement
and accompanied with action but without the proper intention and you're not doing it to please Allah subhanaw taala when it says hypocrisy
if statements and action and intention but not following
then it is better.
So you have to have all of these components inshallah for your Eman
was skipping it but it
and I want to get into a stop again this unfortunately is already getting late
because of many reasons that we kind of got into this late but there's a an important topic that is sometimes misunderstood. And so therefore inshallah I want to try to clarify this.
And it is related to a verse in the Quran.
This verse in the Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala says quality and
lacking kulu Aslan Emanuel
went to la hora, sola, sola. Whoa, la gente que les let's come in American share in the law reform law in
this version, sort of verse 14, which is an instance Miss understood.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says the Bedouin say and these were a group of veterans that came to the public system after accepting Islam, the Bedouin say we believe.
And so Allah subhanho wa Taala says to promiseland speak to them and you believe not, but say we have submitted an exam.
Faith has not yet entered your hearts.
But if you bear align His Messenger he will not decrease anything in reward for your
very allies off forgiving, Most Merciful.
So this, this verse in the Quran talking about these veterans who have just recently submitted
have just recently entered into Islam and they are coming in this thing you know we are believers.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says no
and you don't say that you are believers, but you have submitted
or Eman has not yet entered into art.
But if you will be online as messenger, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will not decrease anything in reward for your
these Bedouins they will not hypocrites. Some people understand from this verse that they were hypocrites.
The Bedouins were not hypocrites.
Because Allah subhanho wa Taala clearly said that if you bail on his messenger then and you will
and your your reward will not be decreased in any way whatsoever. So obviously hypocrite by definition, he has no actual real Eman in his heart. So is the genuine with anything. So here Allah subhanho wa Taala is talking about Muslims.
And saying to them, they look
and you people, and those of us who have converted to Islam,
especially any recently or those of us who just grew up in a Muslim family, we have not really any taken our genes seriously and we should pay attention towards Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying in this verse.
Basically, Allah subhana wa tada saying, look, you don't have the right
to call yourself.
You're not at that level. You're just now submitted.
But Allah subhana wa tada was hamdulillah. And he says it in such a way. Well, I'm married
to Puerto Rico. And it's a 3.0, Allah subhanho wa Taala showing them that this event is going to come to them. And it is something inshallah they can look forward to. And in other words, there are some heights, some realm that they may get to in, in Islam and in it. But right now, how can you call yourself the only a believer?
And you'll just know and submitted to Allah subhana wa, tada what this implies? And there's also another heavy control system, very similar meaning
is it when we talk when we say Amen, and we say any believer who is a believer or any want to be a believer, and so forth.
We are, we have to realize that there's a difference between a Muslim
and a woman.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has made the difference. The film is differentiated between the two, there is a difference between a Muslim
and a woman.
What's the difference between the two? And what? What are we talking about here?
And what we're talking about here is that there is there is a realm
or let's say, let's put in
there is a set.
And we can call this sets. Islam
within that set is a smaller subset.
And we can call that set in.
There's also a further subset
that we will not get into. I'll just mention it.
Don't ask me about the record. I'm not kidding.
So what does this mean? And what are all the ramifications? for it?
We don't have time to go through all the details here. So let me just
in a very cold hearted fashion.
As you people must be accustomed to by now.
And in the outer circle of Islam,
and the inner circle of inner or the outer circle of Muslims, and the inner circle of believers.
for someone to be in that inner circle
for someone to be have the right to be called a believer and categorically
and either this person is the believer. This means he is fulfilling all of the obligations of Elon
I need to be to be called to be in that category because I'm a believer and categorically a believer a movement
which these veterans have not yet met. It means you're fulfilling all of the obligations of Amen.
So if you go to the verses in the Quran that inshallah if we have time at the end to describe the believers, shall I hope we get to them, it means the believer is doing with meeting all of those qualifications.
To take one example, the poet says, Dylan said lay, you know, I had a half day I believe he might have been a
and it is not one of you is a believer, until he loves was Brother, what he loves oneself.
Not one of you as a believer, until he loves for his brother, what he loves for himself.
This statement or the process in the means,
that if anyone wants to play again, it could be a true believer, a complete believer, a real believer, he has to have this quality.
And he has to have this coffee that he loves for his brother, what he loves once.
If he does not have that quality, or that that characteristic,
then yes, he is a believer in an oil in a general sense, but he is lacking any man.
He is a believer was lacking in any man.
And if we want to live Of course, we don't do this. But if we wanted to label people, the one who needs this characteristic and all the other characteristics, we call him a believer.
The one was within the folder Islam like the veteran, but has not reached this level. Then we call him a Muslim or we call him a believer who is lacking any man
lacking faith, he doesn't have the complete faith yet.
So to be any a true complete and categorical believer it means you're meeting all of the characteristics of being a believer which inshallah we will discuss
what are the ramifications of this?
What are what is the difference and it with respect to the hereafter? What is the difference between being in that outer circle and being in that inner circle?
Well, the ramifications is that on the Day of Judgment,
as we know, there's going to be three types of people.
They're going to be the disbelievers and he goes through rejected the truth or refuse to follow the truth or deny the truth or whatever. And whatever form of Cobra they
These people will be in the Hellfire forever.
A second group of people
are and what we can call Muslims.
They are the people who have Eman they have faith they have any the minimum and what it means to be faith could be a believer in the general sense or in other words, to be Muslim.
What would be their faith
on the Day of Judgment.
And if we're just at this level of being Muslim,
we are from those people who are facing the possibility of punishment in the Hellfire
on the desert.
And if we're just from that outer circle of being Muslim, this means that he will not fulfilling the requirements of Eman. This means we are disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala to some extent, this means perhaps you are committing some of the grave sins.
So we are facing the possibility of being punished in the Hellfire India
but because of our Eman we will be rescued from the Hellfire and into insurgents.
But we will be punished for we may be punished first in the hellfire.
And I think anyone anyone familiar
with what it means to be punished in the Hellfire
will do whatever he can and if he has no belief in that and real firmly that this is going to happen. And if it is such a thing as the Hellfire in the beginning and so forth, really. He will do whatever he can to avoid but if he's lacking any man
If his desire is overcome his image sometimes is just overcome as the man sometimes when he is in that outer level of Islam, and he may be punished in the Hellfire on the digit.
If he's fulfilling the obligations of a man
there is from that inner circle of believers The moment he
and he will enter into agenda directly
without any push.
This is what these different components mean, what these different aspects
really, and just to be able to finish up.
And one thing before I,
I want to get to some of the description of the game, because maybe that will be the most beneficial aspect.
But one of the points that I'd like to mention
along the way, is that if you go to the Quran and go through the process of setting up the entering, jinn entering Paradise
is always tied into being a believer.
And you will never find any verse in the Quran
in which Allah subhanho wa Taala
joins an interfaith paradise with the concept of Islam by itself.
Either it is a general promise to the believers, always the promise to those who have belief into the good deeds, which is in which we're talking about.
For example, Allah subhanaw taala.
And it says, The love
of what God has promised to blue men and the believing woman genda and so forth, Danny describes dinner, you'll never find ghosts like that in which Allah subhanaw taala says walk alone Muslim, Muslim,
and always entering the agenda and is tied into this component of really having a man. So
as I said, let me need to be able to close the lecture. And the only good thing about me starting late and having all those problems at the beginning is that inshallah there will be no time for questions.
But of course, I'll have to the Quran and we can also go through the headache, but
we have limited time. So let us go to some of the verses of the Quran, in which our ohana with Allah describes the believers.
And the purpose for this, again, is not something just theoretical, and we can list the characteristics of the blues and so forth. But it is an opportunity for us to examine ourselves
to look down into ourselves,
do we need these characteristics or not?
And to understand that if we don't meet them, what does that mean?
And to understand that if we do meet them, we'll have the law What does that mean?
So much in hand with Allah says in the Quran.
One of the one of the places in the Quran surah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the believes in the mud Muna.
Allah subhanho wa Taala begins by saying any in the map in the map, and it means that these are the only true believers.
And in the map.
How do you say this?
I know how they have it, but that doesn't help much and that encompasses or
restricts the meaning or this term any thing that
in other words, how are you going to translate into maluna Lydia, and if the only believers are those who use
now here we're talking about Amen. We're talking about that inner circle and the only true believers The only ones who are deserving to be called believers.
And in uncharitable and categorical stance and all these are the ones inshallah
without any punishment whatsoever in here.
Allah subhana wa tada says in
is a man while I loved him, it was
an honor for
What is going Kareem?
Allah subhanho wa Taala says the only true believers are those people
Who will be our daddy reminded a woman from Hannover dalla with their hearts shake their hearts and it becomes fearful.
That's the first characteristic.
And nowadays, unfortunately, not nowadays in the history of mankind
and sometimes if you if you if someone is doing something wrong and you remind them of Allah subhana wa Tada. You remind him of what he said about that wrong thing that he joined, even sometimes, the first the punishment and it has no effect upon the
end, remember Allah subhanho wa Taala we sit down to the philosophy of the vicar.
Anyone can make Vicar in our hearts nothing.
And he will the ones who are coming to the mosque
and clearly to be believers and we can make record and we can remind the reminder of all the data and nothing in our
email. And when the when the signs and one of the verses of Alyssa Hannah with Darla, I recited unto them the
same kind of thing. And when we sometimes when we read the Quran, if you come to Europe
and sit and watch the people read social class before the revolution
and when we do that, when we read this any Is there any effect on our hearts?
Do we really feel like what our Eman is increasing? As we read? every verse, I imagine is getting stronger.
While a lot of beginners work alone, and they put their trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala as they put their trust in the Lord.
They rely upon the Lord. And one of the aspects of rely upon the Lord is that they will balance and handle with data and they know that Allah subhanho wa Taala will provide for them and they know that Allah subhana wa tada is the provider.
And I hate to go back to the discussion that
took place yesterday.
But basically the sister was was almost implying now I'm probably doing the same thing that she or someone did. Someone to Ghana with respect I didn't mean to say that someone did with respect to what I said.
And she's arguing that No
sister and he has to go out and get a degree instead of because maybe your husband will die in 10 or 15 years and you'll be left without a degree or anything.
If you do what Allah subhana wa tada has ordered you to do and you put your trust in Allah subhana wa tada and you're not the one who provides for yourself if you go out and get a degree you think now you have the ability to provide for yourself how many unemployed PCs
and PCs in in Boulder I love
living in the streets.
without approval provides was in the believer knows that and he puts his trust and reliance on almost handles
to establish the salon those who perform the salon in the correct manner both outwardly and inwardly. Coming to the mosque and praying is unitaspark as a comic
con and they spin out of what
Allah what Allah subhana wa tada is bestowed upon them and you Balu has many things that he spends his money on, some of them are obligatory upon him he has to suit he has to support himself he has to support the family has to support growth because of their need and so forth.
And beyond that he has many things that he spends on the door and not obligatory upon
Allah subhanho wa Taala to begin by thanking them and moving over and now says Oh, like a woman woman on a haka and it is the true believers these people these are the two believes
our emphasizes twice a DS and only these are the people are deserving to be called believers. Those who make these cases
these are the ones who saw our last agenda without any punishment whatsoever.
Versus any witness you take and read them and ask yourself, Is this a sign of a talent? Yes here.
Can we honestly say to ourselves, this is the description of myself.
This is this is what I'm doing. This is what I do.
And we can then hope inshallah and look forward inshallah, to entering into gender directly
It is a serious matter. This is a serious question.
This is one of the most important questions that we can ask and answer about ourselves.
And before we talk about priorities, the dollar and so forth, as we talked about in the lecture on simulation and reclusiveness, anybody had pointed out? And of course, not I have to save yourself first, and your family.
And this is how you save yourself Danny's to see whether or not you're within the folder of Sam. And secondly, whether or not you are gelato believes, while another verse
in another verse, Allah subhanho, wa Taala, or other verses.
Why wait, the beginning of sort of the moment when you read the first 11 verses are sort of the moment you find many of the descriptions of the believers, I will just, I will just
in order to complete any decision,
made one more verse in which Allah subhanho wa Taala is describing the believers.
Let's find what that is,
believing men and believing women,
more than protecting one another.
and establish what is right and eradicate what is evil.
Establish the slot.
these are the ones that are
behave towards one another
where each other has any close friends and companions that we can rely on that we can put
the more we see something wrong.
we try to help a believer.
And as I said, these are just some of the verses.
That if you want to be from those people,
without punishment whatsoever, Allah subhanho wa Taala will be pleased with them. There's no need for them to be and oppose with any form of punishment without is pleased with him and will show mercy upon them and will give them more than what he deserves
anyone to hell fire except due to justice, and he doesn't
want us to handle what data into people's agenda by His mercy.
And if we if we think about emotion and what we demand, and we can see this wall
and in different possible situations,
we can realize that our mind is not complete.
If our mind is not complete, that means that our hearts we have some kind of nifer some kind of cover
because if the heart is not filled with imagine it is filled with its opposite.
And you can have one heart janee which has immense and has coordinates.
So we can rewrite that about ourselves and we can accept that.
And someone might accept that and say okay,
this is my situation.
And maybe I'm going to the Hellfire
but I don't believe any any rational person. Any intelligent person. Anyone would really believe
it would accept that kind of situation for himself whatsoever.
Instead, yeah, you should recognize the state
situation and have the design the love and the will and the intention to change the situation.
And he may never reach that goal.
But he has this love in his in his heart for a man and he has that desire.
And he has that intention and he's working towards that goal.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala may look at him and put your system and ensure inclusion because
and this is what you really want it in his heart and this is what you were striving for in his heart, he may have some weaknesses
in this blue area, and do some things that go wrong in this blue area
of the law that is for almost no data and the love for a man in his heart is the strongest thing that he has in his heart. Well, we might look at these characteristics of the believers in fine and hamdulillah
if we need these cases
in that case, we should be very thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala that his birthday has invited us to a man and put the love of a man in our hearts and this will make us even stronger in our image and increase or
me under any I will and the end the lecture there's a number of different issues and related to this that are very important that I
any recommend for my brothers and sisters and to to think about the study and one of them is the way of increasing our Eman and the things that inshallah will lead us to an increase in our men and boys and the means by which our Eman maybe decrease and harm
angelic we know this and understand them and apply the first category and remain away from the second category and inshallah we will be
increasing our event and getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala having Allah subhanho wa Taala pleased with us
and having the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala indeed.
Well this is Annie I think
this is something that everyone should reflect upon that pleasing Allah subhanho wa Taala
worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala obeying Allah subhanho wa Taala this should be the things that are first and foremost in our hearts the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala above anything else.
And if we do not if we are not yet at that level,
then we should think of ourselves like those Bedouin Arabs who entered into Islam, that if we're sincere and we work towards that goal, inshallah, amen will enter into our heart and Allah subhanho wa Taala will be pleased with us on the
Salah. Now, I don't know if there's any questions. It is time for silver equal praise first.
Okay, so we'll
make a dent and then anyone who needs to make will do freaknik will do and so we'll pray five minutes after that
510 minutes after then Salah. Some punk alone will be having deca instead of when the
SLC Roca was
