Follow your desires that can be a million in one reason, what reasons why your opinion will disagree with the command of Allah. But your intellect will never disagree. So at least here, he didn't put in place being Satan. He didn't put his intellect over the command of Allah. But his opinion, the way he saw it was that his credit from a better song. You know, some people say the first racist was the beliefs and so on and so forth. Fine, whatever label you want to give it. I don't care about a column racist column, whatever you want to fascist, but the point is,
the command came from Allah subhanaw taala. And he refused. And the idea is submission to Allah.
And that's what the Muslim is a Muslim is the one who submits to a loss of harm that Islam is submission to Allah zoja so that's why you can't be a non submitting submitted. I'm a Muslim, but I don't I don't pray I'm a Muslim, but I don't follow this part. You have to submit completely as a larger gift says yeah, even Nina Armando Hello wasil me Kapha Are you believe enter into totality into Islam, completely enter not 50% 70% 90% no 100% into Islam.
So what is required your submission not your addition everyone wants to add to Islam and adjust and tweak and stuff doesn't need your addition it needs your submission is one of the one of the scholars said it requires your submission. And that's when you look for example, you look at Hajj and you will find the hug even nominal rituals. They're all submitted to Allah. So someone will try to be like, you know,
a Muslim would think outside of the box and intellectual and say things like watching the kiss the Blackstone during Hajj. Or why should we kiss the Blackstone at all? It's just a milestone. Okay. Well, he's forgetting that all of hedges just about stones upon stones, right? You circum ambulating the Kaaba and it's made of stones. Then you go up and stuff on and miroir which are little hills, what are those piles of stones, then you throw the jamara little pebbles, which are small stones. So it's all about in the case of Blackstone, again a stone, it's all about stones. Because if you want to get technical, why do we circumambulate the commerce seven times? Why not six times? Why not
eight times? And why is the bow off itself circumambulation? Why is it counterclockwise, not clockwise. And here, people tried to turn clockwise because the Earth spins clockwise, really. So we go clockwise around the cabinet because the earth goes clockwise. What does that help you along? That you're going with the flow of the earth or something? And so if you went the other direction, you'd be like fighting?
Or some some people throw the hearts on the left? Not just on the hearts not on the left, right? Or the doctors in the hearts not on the right. But the loudest part of it is on an leans like this. It's in the middle of things like that, right? So it's not really so what suppose the heart was on the tip of your left finger, you can make a right turn because the hearts on the left. So you do it because a large group commanded. And there's that guy who will ask you the question no matter what, why the prayer is five. Okay? And if allows you to legislate the three prayers, why are they three that? And if they're able to wait? What's the wisdom behind it? All right. In the end, a lot of the
other would do to wisdom long term, he decided upon five prayers. Now.
A lot of times we see we can alone commanded to do something, and we will see the wisdom of why we should do it. And sometimes it's very clear because it's 100%. Good. So Allah commanded to worship Him alone, and not to associate anyone else in worship with him. That's totally you look at don't hate and it's 100% good. There's no evil in it. I don't you agree? Okay. So it's clear why we should worship a lot alone and not associate worship with anything else besides Allah or along with Allah. Sometimes a low command is not to do something. And when we examine it, we see that it's 100% evil, like ship worshipping something besides Allah worshiping something along with a lot. No one will
tell me that there's even 1% good in that is 100%, bad 100% evil to clean. there's anything else that deserving any of your adoration, and love and praise and worship besides our laws.
So, we see clearly why we should abstain from shirk, stay away from associating others in worship with Allah. But sometimes Allah will command us to do something or to leave something and when we examine it, we see a combination of good and bad in it. And one of the famous examples, wine, you know, so wine, Allah mentions in the Quran, that there's some good in it, but it says the harm is greater than the good. That's what every now and then a journal comes out with a glass of wine a day is good for the liver or whatever. Okay, fine. There's a study that proves it doesn't make it up. Because we already knew that Alyssa, there's good in it. And of course, the good is not from the
alcohol is from the antioxidants and other things in the wine. It's not really the alcohol, it's good for you. But if we look at
What alcohol in general is doing to people's health worldwide is improving people's health, or damaging severely people's health, and lives and all the and families and all kinds of things. So we can see that there's the bad outweighs the good. And we see the wisdom behind why Allah told us to stay away from it.
But like I was saying earlier, sometimes you look at certain things or looking at certain things, and you can't necessarily figure out the wisdom, like the warmth, around the Kaaba being counterclockwise, as opposed to clockwise. So these issues, even though they're not many, and sometimes you might come up with some kind of interesting wisdom behind it, but these types of issues, then they basically test your submission to Allah subhanaw taala? Are you going to do it or not? And sometimes you can find out a wisdom later on. But is our obedience to a large region contingent are connected to whether or not we find the wisdom first? Am I going to do it? Or then
maybe find the wisdom later? Or am I going to abstain from it until I find the exact wisdom and then I'll obey Allah and that's exactly what a police here did. So he was commanded to prostrate
and scholars measure all kinds of use jealous, right? You know, so he's got envy, jealousy or he made his own calculation that I'm created from a better substance than he is and so on and so forth. And based on that he refused to prostrate to a lot of the angels as we said, they can think, but they don't, they do not have the ability to disobey Allah subhanaw taala. So they instantly prostrated out of out of obedience to Allah and out of respect to show to honor Adam and external
now, so employees that didn't just refuse to prostrate he refused to prostrate.
And he was also being belligerent if I can use that term in being belligerent. So
he says, This is
Chapter 17, verse 62, call our a Taka. And it's such a district disrespectful language. I mean, it's the equivalent it's not the same, literally, but it's the equivalent of saying, Are you serious? Or Oh for real? This is the one you prefer it over me like that kind of disrespect. He says, Carla, are a tiger hide under the counter ID so is this the one that you've honored over me above me? That in a hurt any ailment the AMA that and he can do reata who in La pelea he says if you give me respite, meaning keep me alive until the Day of Resurrection, I will eat surely mislead his offspring. All but a few. All right.
Now, let's start so we've got many different parts of the Quran mentioning this incident here so in sort of salt verse 75, a legend says Allah English madman aka and test you the Lima hello to be a day. He said, Oh, he blazed what prevented you from prostrating to, to what I created with my own hands. And that's how honored Adam is. And I'm creating him with his own hands. As the birth time quantum li li so are you? Are you arrogant?
arrogant, or are you from the High Exalted, you're too good for this. And both options were bad and there isn't even a good option here. It's not like there's some other good possibility What? Because there isn't a good reason to disobey Allah. Right? So both options, give it to him with bad options. It's not like yeah, everyone clear on that point.
then he said, Carla, and Ohio Minho. Hello petani minari Conoco, he said, I'm better than him. You credit me from a fire, meaning a smokeless fire, and you credit him from mud from clay. So his estimation is unquilted from a better substance, therefore I am better than him. Why should I prostrate to him?
And even though that wasn't the point, though, it was I mean, in the end, yeah. Adam is better than you, but he does know that at that point. So how are you making a judgement that you bet too soon, right.
Then Allah subhanaw taala says, Okay, I'm going to come back to that. So
also insert elkhechen 39 chapter nine, verse 40.
A large room says Carla, Rob Bhima awakening. He says, oh my lord, so this is me speaking to Allah. Oh my lord, the amount of weight and he and he
with what you have caused me to go industry so he is now blaming a logical unit for him going straight, like the guy disobeys All right? And then blames a lot for it for it like Nobody forced you to disobey unless it prostrate
He refused. And then he says you all are you lead me astray. And you know what people do this until now, like a guy who will make completely horrendously bad decisions. And then in the end was about doing this to me. Well, I had the last I checked, it was you and all the you You're
okay, all your bad decisions and all your craziness. The guy ruins his life in his own hands on the river. It looked like you were doing it.
But a lot of times people don't want to take responsibility and shift the blame to someone else. So he says, based on how you lead me astray Luciana nella home fill out little z. So I will basically beautify this this world for them when aqui en nomads main. So I'm going to basically learn them all, learn all of them Illa Eva coming home and molossia except for the sincere from your servants from amongst them, except your sincere servant to amongst them. So I'm going to make this world look beautiful to them. And I'm going to lower them except for those who are sincere from your service. also enjoy inside verse, verses 82 to 83.
is here he says God for the Exotica the obeah nomads. And here he swears by the might of Allah is still recognizing the power of Allah and everything. So he's saying, by your might, the Vietnamese May I will learn all of them altogether in about the coming home office and very similar except your Europe since your service from them. So okay, that means that brings us to a few, a little,
a short discussion on a policeman who is in police, right? Number one, your greatest enemy, as Allah Subhana. Allah says in the shape on a local model, one
shaytan is an enemy of yours. So take him as a clear enemy, take the ship on as your enemy. That's his job 24 seven all the time trying to take you away from Allah subhanaw taala trying to cause you cause problems between you and a lot between you and other people and so on and so forth. He is one of the jinn. So he's not an angel. And until now you'll find Muslims will say that, I mean, I've run out of ignorance that it bleeds was from the angels. Angels will have the concept of fallen angels and Islam angels never disobey Allah. So if you were an angel, he wouldn't, he would not have disobeyed.
He was from the jinn. There were some scholars who, whose in classical scholars in the old days who thought the place was from the angels. All right, but then you show them? Well, if you were to show them the verse in a police academy in a genie professor,
very pleased in or indeed English was from amongst the jinn, and basically stepped out of the command of his Lord and disobeyed his Lord. So the verses clear that he is from the jinn. And I'm sure those scholars saw this verse. So why do they still think that he's, he was an angel, anybody?
In the verses clearly he was a jinn. But they still think he was an angel. Because they thought that the jinn was a tribe from the angels, known as the jinn. Why, and that's why this is the importance of, of Hadith. And that's why I did will clarify, even Quran in their verses in clarified by the Hadith, because they didn't receive the Hadith in violation of the law. And that explains that the angels were created from light and the jinn were created from a smokeless fire. This Hadith will clarify and you'll never think that the jinn that he released was from the angels, so they didn't receive this honey. That's why they thought he was from the angels. And some scholars like even
taymiyah Rahim, Allah believe that he is the father of all so realistically that
they call the showdown but it was really between the father of humanity and the father of all Jin.
What's the proof?
chapter 18 verse 50, almost couldn't
do a please. Can I mean a gene therapy in reverse? We just mentioned that it continues as a donor who was better who Oh, Leah, I mean, dooney Amato, which Allah.
So Allah says, Do you take him and his offspring as as allies or friends besides me? So because it says his offspring. Some scholars believe that he was the father of all the genes because all the rest were from his offspring. Now, the minute you say that somebody wants to know about his wife.
And that's why one person
came to a scholar. He said, What's the name of bleached his wife? He said, I wasn't invited to the wedding.
Who cares? Right? What is
Dude, is she a stay at home? Mom Who cares?
Bless his family and enough, forget it. We don't know, there is no information anyways, right?
The scholars go into the wisdom behind the creation of a plan, or at least or Satan. And I'm not going to go through the list and everything, but I just want to focus on one and that is fearing, since. I mean, it was so righteous that Allah brought him up, brought him up to the level of the angels in the heavens. And he used to worship Allah subhanaw taala, excellent quality and quantity. And then one sin led him to go downhill. And he became the worst thing that we know, what is the worst thing ever say in place, for sure.
One sin, and it just reversed all his years of good worship and quality and quantity. So one of the things it does is it leads people to be afraid of their sin. Especially a good reminder for us today, because we live in a day and age where people aren't afraid of their savings. And I'm not talking about people who are not believers. Of course, who cares, I'm talking about the believers, they're not afraid of their sin. And there's always an excuse for the sin, the hearts are pure, the Times have changed. There's always an excuse, always some kind of excuse. But first and foremost, we're to attempt to obey Allah subhanaw taala. And to follow the commands of Allah as much as
possible, then if it's impossible, then some scholar Not me, or you, some scholar that will tell us okay, here, this is impossible, because whatever it is the day and age and circumstances. So there's, there's, you know, you could do this or do that instead. But our first attempt is to find a reason not to do something. That's that's our first attempt your first attempt, try as much as you can tell, there's no other way, then you don't give yourself a federal discolor will give you a verdict so that you can a religious verdict that allows you to bypass or temporarily, you know, whatever it is not do it or do it another way or so on and so forth. But it's just
fearing, since it's such an important lesson that you get from the life of the police, you should you should fear your sin. And mediheal behave like you know, there is no way they could be misguided or no way their heart would change and so on and so forth that the prophets are used to ask a lot in history, Jude are the one who turns the hearts keep my heart firm upon your religion. If the prophets I send them who came with the religion saying keep my heart firm upon it, you find these people think I could never take it easy with that. We don't want to be overconfident, especially when it comes to our religion, especially when it comes to religion.
Like I always say like people who want to test their email, you know, you always want to test their email. And, and of course, you never want to test yourself to see if you break or not. Because
Forgive me for repeating this analogy, always use it when something is dear to you, you don't test. And what is geared towards these days, I just think of electronic devices. Someone has some kind of tablet pad phone, whatever. That is so dear to you. You don't test it. You don't like take it, put it in a park bench. I'll come back in two days to see if it's there just to test. It will be there or not. But people want to test the man all the time. I'll give doubt to
to the to the girls at the university. Why are you giving doubt to girls only? You want to save men from the Hellfire? Were you picking specific looks of girls last?
you don't test it. Somebody prays with the television. But without the television. Your satellite is all over the place anyways, why testing is? Let me test michael sure. He prays with the TV on focus. There is no there's a sale of JC Penney's
told you bro the TV on.
All right. So theory of sins during sins. And you know how it is. It's crazy. Now, everyone has an excuse. Just this morning, I was reading some kind of some kind of post I guess, on Facebook, some person making excuses present is always an excuse. Fear the sin.
So that's just one of the many points of why illiquidity believes that I want to talk about the other. I want to discuss why don't you bleach them as a lot to give him respite to allow him to live long enough and to live long until the day of judgment. Right.
This is just an opinion. Okay. I'm just saying it for what it's worth. And but I like this opinion very much. So he asked a lot please.
asked Allah subhanaw taala to allow him call on me in a yummy yoga zone. He said, allow me to live until the day they resurrect. So he wants to live until the Day of Resurrection.
Then of course, Allah says Allah in the criminal numbering Isla Yeoman Walker till noon, until you will be given respite, you're going to live long enough until the the appointed time or until the day of the appointed time. So some scholars said, I'm not being honest with you the majority opinion is that the human locked in mind on the day of this appointed time is the day of judgment. So the majority opinion is that he will live until the day of judgment. And then this is a minority opinion. And I honestly really love this opinion. The minority opinion says that he will not live until the day of judgment, he will die shortly before the day of judgment. Why? Because Allah, He
says, Let me live until the day that resurrected, and Allah doesn't say you will live until the day when they're resurrected, live until the appointed day, appointed time. So some believe that he will die a little before the day of judgment. And as far as both groups that's as explicit as the evidence gets no one, no one of them will say, oh, there's a hadith that says you'll die at this specific time. Now, the reason I really like this opinion, is that, you know, I've got this other class on the science before the day of judgment. And what's interesting, before the day of judgment, you've got all these battles, you've got all these kinds of fitten, and trials and tribulations and
they've got their names and their descriptions, and some of them will fill the earth, then you've got the math, you've got the digital, you've got the dove by the beast, and all the hydrogen juice emerging. But what's interesting with all the signs and all the 10 major signs over the day of judgement and over 400 minor Well, if you look at authentic it less than that, no reference to the police, you don't get to see what his role will be. What will be the job of a police one with the journalists there? Does he following the what will be the role of the police when the death becomes he tried to reverse its work? This is what happens. What happens when the sun rises from the no
mention of the police at all. And it's kind of strange that there's no mention of him whatsoever. And, again, feel free to disagree. That's why it makes so much sense to me that he doesn't exist until the Day of Resurrection itself before that.
judgment, but there's still time for human beings.
You know, while all this is happening, so is that does that mean that
his workers are not even trying to? No, no? Of course, it will keep working?
For sure. For sure. But, but I mean, if we continue down this thought process of so why then the little other devils will remain there, but why not? employees? Well, I mean, you've got some First of all, there's so much corruption so that people that we don't even need his leadership anymore. The little guys can take care of things because the hour only rises upon the worst of creation. So it's not like he's it's not necessarily anyone's it's a minority opinion. So I don't want to keep theorizing about it because, you know,
but I mean, it makes sense because it would deny him the satisfaction of seeing a world full of champion like him. It makes a lot of sense if he asked me in love since but I love with the island. These are issues of the unseen and that's why please bought a Glock even when it comes to issues of the unseen we don't fight over
issues unless we've got the Hadith on our side. If you have a hadith on your side, then the other party should not open their mouth. Right? For example. And this always frustrates me until this day, you have jujin gaag and may God The evidence is very clear. They're behind a barrier when someone steps up and tries to tell me that Oh, the barrier is figurative and it just means that they have not emerged that Yeah, don't don't this is unseen okay? So it's not like you are one of them where you met them Are you are you hadn't you know, you're the human ambassador to them you you had an embassy there and lived with them for what you don't know this is unseen. So as far as me and you
go, I've got a Heidi you don't don't argue with me. Okay.
Not me anyone anything when it comes to write? anyway.
So what is the I just wanted to mention three points about the wisdom behind the prolonged life of bliss. Let me just get my time myself. How are we doing? How much time that's like half an hour? Okay. What is the wisdom behind this prolonged life? And why would Allah allow him to live for such a long period of time? Number one, so to a degree all humans can have an equal trial, right? can have equal trial. Imagine so you go to natural law, and then you meet someone and you know, Jeff
Just chilling. You get to know another brother, sister, you get to know another sister like, hey, what time period? Did you live on earth? Oh, man, we lived in route 20. Well, you wouldn't say 2017. I don't know how you tell him the date anyways. But we're from the home of Mohammed sauce in the muleta part of
what time did you live? I was like from the fifth generation of the children of man that English gave us a hard time. Now imagine in our story. English doesn't live that long. He dies after a few years, right? So the guy says all men, a police gave us a hard time.
By the way,
you can sit after facing please, that guy was so wicked and NVC hated people. And you're, you don't have to deal with a belief. Now you just dealt with little chance. Oh, that's not fair. So it makes it fair when when the majority of humanity has to deal with the police, not just the first generation, then it bleeds, dies. And then the rest of the people that have realized that.
Okay, that's one. Number two.
by extending his life, it's almost in a sense, a form of reward for all the good that he did in the past, because he used to do a lot of good.
I mean, he did a lot of good as far as worshiping alone, obeying the law. But by living this long life, he basically it's like, it's like a reward for all the good that he did in the past. And that way, he has nothing, nothing to claim on the Day of Judgment. And the Day of Judgment, let's say he died. 50 was his makeup on number 50 years after he disobeyed. But he worshipped the law, let's say 4000 years or 2000. As, as some narration and nominations some scholars say 2000 years before humans are generally on Earth. So let's see worship Allah perfectly beautifully. for 2000 years, then he does 50 years after disobeying Allah. So 50 years, disobedience, 2000 years, he might want to claim
something on the Day of Judgment. But Allah allowed him to live for 1000s and 1000s. of years then, and he wouldn't have no claim on the Day of Judgment, because he remained and he got this like, it's like a reward for what it did in the past.
Which brings an interesting question, before we get to the third point, can he police repent?
Notice the wording. Can a police repent? Yes, he can repair. But will he repaired a lot of the future he told us he will never repaired. So he has the ability to repair. But he is not going to
come back. Yeah. What from his will get to answer. Okay. So it's the possibility of independence is there but Alan told us that he's not going to be no he won't. Okay, so the third point with the wisdom behind the police's prolonged life is that it's actually not in his best interest. People think, because sometimes we just love this world so much. And we think, Well, why does he get this reward of living for so long, but in his case, isn't good for him to live long? He lives the longer he's alive every year, millions of sins that he is not causing, but he is. I don't know. What's the word instigating, introducing, right? So is it a good thing for him to live a long life? It's gonna
be a disaster for him. Right? He's just accumulating things. But How come he's not? It's not like he's in Hawaii. He's accumulating sins all the time. Right. So it's not like a great thing that we should be upset that he lives along like
So then why was demolished and I'm forgiven. And we're going to get to an Adam was forgiven, but at least punished and never accepted. Because other malice around when he ate from the fruit, which we're going to come to in detail next next week, but in general, when other item ate from the fruit, he instantly repented and he felt bad and some duration say that after he came down to earth for 70 years, he kept crying out because he's so busy with this one thing.
And, but so others felt bad, I did something he repented. That's why he was forgiving. As far as for at least he sinned. And he was belligerent and he and he was insisting upon his position. And he also blamed Allah for allowing him to go making him go astray and so on. And so the scholar says, like, you have your son, for example, breaks a glass, the glass or a vase or something. So what did you do and it was an accident. I didn't see it, and I'm so sorry. You let him go. But what if you stopped your child breaks the vase? What did you just do? Was that by accident, but now, when by accident, I'll do it again.
Now what happened?
You know what?
Go to your room and think about what you've done, right?
We mentioned that a lot how to Allah taught them so lucky that Adam taught him the names of things.
the names of all of all the names
He says to him all the names. So what were these names? We said that included, for example, said Allah subhanaw. taala taught him the names of all things, their qualities, and indicators to quote him, he says, even
breaking wind, and even passing gas, he told them what that is. And he knows this is poisonous, that's good. This is fire. This is cooking. This is raw, everything. This is salt, everything. And we said some of the contemporary scholars said even things that you'll never see, he told him about. Some of them even say, computers, this is an app, in the Hadith in Bukhari, when people are going to do they're trying to intercede on a day of judgment, they want to intercede as one of the prophets to ask a lot to start the day of judgment to start the judgment, because people are tired of waiting. So they go to Adam and Islam, and they say, You are the father of all people, Allah created
you with his own hands. And he ordered the angels to prostrate to you, and taught you the names of all things. Because in the Quran, it just says the names here and tell you the names of all things. So seven categories is this hadith is evidence that the things of all kinds of objects and trees and others
we said, Then Allah subhanaw, taala brought Adam is around. And he asked the angels to tell them the names of the things and the angels didn't know. But from their other Guardiola, almudaina illa, Allah, they said, there is no we don't have any knowledge except for what You have taught us. So what is an interesting point here is that look at the the other good manners of the angels, they didn't try to take a guess. They didn't try to take a guess they know it was testing them. So they said, We don't know anything except that what You have taught us, they try to take a guess. And let me try this. As people now very relaxed when it comes to the religions, to take guesses with
everything. And one time there was an event and the speaker, and the speaker was still there. And it was some brother sitting at a table. One of them said, I'm gonna go ask the question. Another brother said asked me.
The guy said, No, I would rather ask the chef, they said, Let me try to it's not a cigarette. Let me let me try. Let me try. It's not like chocolate ice cream or milkshake or something. It's a serious business here. But let me take a guess. Either I get it right or wrong, you can let me know later. So here are the angels didn't take a guess they just said we don't know. And then they say they saw the knowledge of Adam and Salah.
And we said that so we already did this part. But here Allah subhanaw taala created how what so it caused Adam to go into fall asleep. And then from Adam created his spouse Eve or Hawa. And and that's why I lost my dad says you You are not
enough. See wider are you people fear your Lord was created you from one sock from a single soul. That's Adam wahala Camila has Oda and from 18 credit, it's spouse, spouse. And that's why the scholars say because we originally came from that one soul from that one being that used to be mailed when Allah addresses humanity addresses in the mail form, but that includes female, so it's not like, Oh, you know, noon, noon, and this one Arabic So when something is for women, there's an extra noon in it and choices for a woman. So no woman can say, Oh, well, these verses don't have none. And this was only talking to men. No, it's only talking. It's not only talking to men talking
to both men and women. That because we originally came from one seed the male seed or soul. That's why Allah refers to the domain that sense but it doesn't mean it excludes women. So Allah azza wa jal, we had already discussed the part with Eve what being created so the Cusco enter was oh juca Allah Jana was gone. So inhabit live, you and your your spouse in Elgin, which brings us to the discussion. Where was the agenda agenda down here on earth? Or was it up there in the heavens? There are three opinions. The majority opinion says agenda is gender and hold gender, everlasting gender, everlasting life up there, right. Opinion one, the majority sets up in the heavens not down to a
The opinion Oh, honey for Himalayan others also, but it's a minority opinion says no agenda was here on Earth. Jen, because Jenna linguistically posted means a garden. So getting
a third opinion says it was a jet now and we don't know where it is. Obviously, we're not going to discuss this opinion, because they don't have an evidence wherever it is not a problem. Now, so the evidence is that its agenda up there. Jenna was in the heavens up there. paradise was up there, not down here on Earth.
The scholars say Allah subhanaw taala said buscopan. anta the verse I just mentioned was old. You can
l, v. v. Jenna. So this is L here shows that it's specific. Okay? And l shows specific.
So the difference between
when you say, give me that chair versus give me a chair, for example, give me l. So l Jelena. Here is a specific one. And if someone does some good to you, and you say back to them, may Allah grant you l Jenna, what are you saying when you say
I'm saying that one up there? Because I said, l. But if I just told someone, may Allah grant you a genuine or yearning, even if they
do I mean, the one up there do I mean, May Allah give you a farm in friendswood? For example? What What am I saying? I'm saying that one of them. So it's clear that a gentleman could that's the first evidence and the gentleman to
Allah subhanaw taala when Adam and Hawa ate from the fruit from the tree, and he said to them, a bill to a bow minha able to descend, go down from it. hobos is always downwards. That's done with there's no discussion here. There is no vote like that. That's sold. cobalt is down. So he says go down from it. Right. When they when they were leaving it, he said go down, if the beautiful men have from it, Jamie and all of you. So that proved number two, the agenda to hold this up there. Good. Proof number three.
Then entitled, Muslim
narrative, man on the Day of Judgment. Now people want an agenda to be opened up the outside the gates in the gym and it's closed. So then they will say to optimize him fail Kowloon? Yeah. abana, they will say, oh, our Father talking to Adam. And everyone knows that judgment. They know it's him. So they say oh, our Father. Yeah. Ivana. Is Steph lenell agenda. As for agenda to be open for us? Why don't we go to Adam first, because he
used to live there. So this third evidence of a Muslim this howdy is it isn't it quite clear that they go to AD and because hey, you used to live there. Couldn't anyone think this heading is talking about them? Meeting Adam on Earth, they want to open up into some garden here on earth? No. The fourth evidence when the Prophet de la silla met Musa alayhis salam.
And this was possibly during the ascension journey.
Mashallah Sam says to add, and we're gonna come back to this update on the last week, but now I just need this part of it. Next time, we're going to discuss the end of it, which I'm not going to mention now. moosari synopsis? Adam? Yeah. Adam? Hi. Yep. Tana, can you let us down? Well, I just wonder if Sokka min l Jen. Oh, Adam, you let us down. And you took us and yourself out of Elgin. Now obviously.
Musa and Islam and Adam they never met before on Earth. So this was that's why some scholars say this possibly during the ascension journey of the prophets or send them because the prophets were there to meet him.
So you let us down and you took us and yourself out of agenda. Which one do you think is talking about? Some agenda here on earth? That Jen up there? Excuse me?
So these four evidences, aren't they kind of clear the agenda is up there. Okay, but you can make a decision till you see the counter evidence. So let's no opinion. Has anyone been even others come along?
They said no agenda wasn't up there. It was here. It was just a agenda on Earth. Because in the language agenda is a medical
field, a farm to a degree a farm.
And that's what the agenda is Jenna Janina, which is a diminutive form of Jenna.
What because in the last
word that highlight Jen Neto, talking about two people on earth. There's no dispute here. Allah says what the hell gelato and he entered his gender. So what is he talking about your notice you read every week from?
chapter 18. Right. What is it talking about? He entered his garden. No dispute there. So the agenda is Gordon. Yeah. Now
how much time
15 Okay. All right. Just something interesting. You know, Arabic sometimes when when some letters are paired, these indicate something so, genes unknown. They typically indicate something being in this tutorial, something being
away from from sight. So an agenda is called the agenda because the owner of this garden will be hidden gym known sauce shows head something being hidden is typically hidden behind the street. So if someone has a metal and they're deep inside Why can't you see him? Because they're hidden behind the trees right? The jinn gene known Why? Because they're hidden from our vision
also the in war the joola What's the June? Is the the armor the shield? Also the shield called Judah because you hide behind it. So anyway I guess
so then the argument here Group B says Adam and Eve, Adam and Eve and how they were in agenda here on earth and garden here on Earth. What their their arguments number one, Jenna to hold the one up there. Whoever enters it never leaves.
We have proven no for answer that hedger says chapter 15 verse 48.
It says woman who minha democra Jean, and they will not be caused to leave it.
I was talking about agenda when you enter it, you will not be close to leave it. So that's one item left it so how can it be the one up there? It's going to be an agenda. A nice form here on Earth not fun, metal quality place to live, Your Honor. That's one two they said there's no harm in agenda. How was Adam harmed when he discovered when they discovered that their privates and they could see their privates and all they were they were tended to know trying to hide and they were stressed so there's no stressing out in agenda and law calls it down set up don't sell out means it's a place of peace and there's no stress don't stress or anything two
Yeah, and this thing in a way it's very similar to the stress there's no harm and he was caused to feel anxiety and and all that also related to the the profits being exposed. And then Adam slept in agenda. There's no sleeping and agenda he slept one I was graded from his rent. Yeah, let me let me just keep going here and then couldn't live up the cliff is one you're told to do something or to abstain from something they said an agenda. Do you don't you're not told do this. We can't do that. This is gender. You can do what you want. So here Adam and Sam was told him in an hour while
the shadow and do not come near the street. Notice nothing and say don't eat from the tree. So don't even come near the tree. So there was a prohibition. And we know that no, prohibition is in gender. All right. And we said he was taken out of it already. That's how many points now for you can add a fifth one. A please enter the gym.
He entered gender. So he was kicked out. Right. He was kicked out a little and to leave when he didn't prostrate everyone on board here. When when they refuse to prostrate when he refused to prostrate he was kicked out. Then Adam and Howard remained an agenda for Howard came later on in the remainder. So if Allah keeps you out of a place are you gonna sneak back in? But he comes back in and convinces them to eat from the fruit. Evidence is looking good.
Right? Everyone's bored today. What's up? Because we're not joking as much.
you're getting it. Not only did he enter, you can keep this 585 b now or six if you want. He also lied in agenda. And Allah says, No, no one fee what a theme of love describes the agenda. There is no vain talk. There is no sin in it. So how does he go back in and then lie? Make sense? Pretty good arguments. Right? Also aliquoted montcada set an abode of truthfulness? How's the police lying in it?
Okay, so then what about the evidence we presented in the beginning? and gentlemen? So you'd like go ahead.
So the minority opinion requires that the first opinion is true, they still hold that there is agenda there for their opinion to be valid. Yes, they're saying that Jim is later when we die, that's the place of reward. But that's not where Adam lives. But it doesn't make sense that they use these arguments because when the later part is when everybody in there is good. So obviously, good. your stepfather was good job, man. Like use your knowledge.
All right. So don't ruin it.
Building up here.
Very good. Good job. So they said what about the rebuttals? I mean, they said Group A versus Elgin l
So what? All right,
because it says boost can enter was Oda elegant you and your spouse live in agenda. They said even in the Koran and even the fact that there's l here doesn't mean anything in Surah Kahf
and column right column noon. Allah subhanaw taala says in bed oh now, can I Ballona as hard.
Elgin? Right? Allah as we get into the
column, right is talking about the people who are on earth and they had a garden. In the Quran Allah called their garden, Elgin. So other gardens were called Elgin. l doesn't mean take it up there instantly. Make sense? Okay. Then they said.
Then they said, Okay, what about the other argument was a bill to mean, descended from it? That's a strong one. And their answer is cobalt. Doesn't have to be physically from up to down. Vote descending doesn't have to be.
Doesn't have to be from up to down. Why? It could mean so it's okay. If it's not from up to down, what could it mean that
and they argue that Adam Allison was in a, in a garden here down on earth, and he was living a very high standard of living. And when he disobeyed, he was lowered and brought out of that very high standard garden into the rest of the earth and it wasn't the same level. And hobos doesn't have to be physically from up and down. Ah, and they've got proof from the Koran. Susan bokhara. Alonzo, again, when most and when they were living in the wilderness, and they were getting their food from Allah every day, you know, that. They said, you know, they asked for garlic and onions, all these things. But Allah says, okay, a bit too Misra.
Can't hear it. What are we on the
Okay. And that means we have How much? Five minutes? Five minutes. Okay, we've got five minutes of material.
So we said they were to Misra when it says go down to Egypt, when it being physical here. physically go down to Egypt. because
Yeah. So they're going down to a lower standard of living. And it's not like they physically went from a mountain down to Egypt. Clear. Okay. So, at this point, it's kind of very convincing evidence, right? I mean, no, no, please, please continue. All right. Because I mean, sometimes you hear when you hear the first one, okay, it's up there. Then you hear the other one. Okay. I brought it down now. But you always have to
Hear the other rebuttal before you make decisions here, I knew someone, for example, who gotten read a book on the ruling of taking pictures and images. And the books was to convince you that it's harder, and the person read it, and it was hard for him for the next 11 years. Because he never read the other side, maybe you'll hear more compelling evidence from ducks, we always look at both evidences before you make a decision. Right? And I'll
I'll rant on that next week. But for now, the answer of the jump hold the majority now respond to these all these arguments. And they destroy a number of them in just a few concepts. As for no sleeping, no restrictions, no vain talk, lying deception. All of this was before the facade before the Day of Resurrection. Okay? Before the Day of Resurrection, entering Paradise is different. If you enter Paradise before the Day of Resurrection, you can leave it right. The prophets also enter Paradise in body and in spirit and left, right.
And left because it was not a place of reward. At that point, it was just where, Oh, I forgot to mention a good point, which is where he was living. By the way, one more argument further down here. It says, Allah says in the Jang fill out of the Hanif, I'm going to put a hanifa on Earth. Now, heavens, now. So there are responding here saying that
the problem entered in body and spirit
was caused to leave it because after the Day of Judgment, you entered into paradise as a reward, and you never leave, like suddenly, angels come get out. Let's go. Put the drink down. And you kicked out, you don't get kicked out. That's why it says llama home and happy Mahajan. They're never going to be cause to leave it. Alright. The other. So after I've done the site changes all the rules change. As for that there was there was a restriction said again, it was where he used to live. And there was a restriction and it's possible for the Day of Judgment, there can be a restriction. Not only that, but they said,
because in the Muslim, there's an evidence, the problem when he went to paradise, he saw a woman making Waldo near a magnificent palace, remember? So he asked me to the palace belong to and he was told it belongs to Rama. He said, and I remembered the jealousy of Roma. So this is one of his women. So I left quickly. And when he said that, I'm not saying I'm not gonna be jealous from you, and there wouldn't have been so now, the scholar said, Why is she making although because before the day of judgment, there could be a cliff there. There could be prayer, there is an agenda. All right.
Then they said not only that only have one more point, this is a really nice point. Not only that, even after the Day of Resurrection, there are restrictions. And
we also know, give me an example.
Yeah, levels, again, the lowest level of genetic packs and pillows and like I'm going up to the highest one. Can you do that? No. All right, our guy just, I don't know. Sorry, for this example, likes your women. I'm taking
my woman, that's what will happen.
You guys with me? Either restrictions an agenda even after Kamsa. Yeah, we can just bust into anyone's house, sit down and drink, were you I'm taking over this joint. There are restrictions. Agreed. So that's what all these arguments sounded good unless until you look at the reputation as for a beliefs, the Quran never said he entered the agenda. He didn't say his religion. So he was kicked out of it. And then he comes back to convince Adam and her work to eat from the tree, did it and say that he was the he entered back into agenda? And the answer is no, it didn't say that. How could he have done it? His whisperings? How does he do that? Can he cast his whisperings to someone?
Can he convince him in a specific way? Because Allah patatas his main app? First of all, do we have proof that minhang was leave Elgin when he refused to bow down when Allah told him go out of it. Some scholars said, Men here can be Elgin. Other say it doesn't have to be a gender, male half from the heavens. And others say the position that you're in the McKenna 400 Gemini and you now leave this high rank being with the angels. You left that now. So it doesn't say you can enter back into agenda. So what he could have entered back into agenda. Two, he could have been close to it and thrown throw his whispers. And if you say he doesn't throw is Mr. Barofsky, do you know him?
Personally, we don't know. We're just hypothesizing he could have thrown his whisper and cast it to them from a distance, or do you insist that Oh, no, he can only do it from close. You have an experiment to prove that. So it's a possibility. Right, but nothing says he crept back in snuck back into or sneaked back into a gym, but I just remember the point. I'm going to add a
for next week's class, we're gonna examine the issue of the circuit.
Is it? Is there such a thing, but there seems to be evidence to support the circuit. All right, we've reached the end.
I think there's no time but if you want, I'll answer your question.
