00:02:30--> 00:02:31

And so

00:02:32--> 00:02:36

the Hadeeth continues. But this is

00:02:37--> 00:02:40

the introduction of the hiraeth and then the first parable.

00:02:41--> 00:02:51

In this Hadith, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began by saying that Allah subhanho wa Taala once commanded you here, Ibn Zakaria

00:02:53--> 00:02:54

Ali Salaam,

00:02:55--> 00:03:04

with five commandments, to abide by them, and to command Benny Isra, el, the children of Israel to abide by them.

00:03:05--> 00:03:07

But he was slow in doing so.

00:03:08--> 00:03:14

So as it is said, and so arisa and yeah, here.

00:03:15--> 00:03:17

They were relatives, and they were living in the same time.

00:03:19--> 00:03:31

So recently, he said, I'm said, Allah has commanded you with five commandments, to abide by them, and to command when he is ill, to abide by them. So either you command them,

00:03:33--> 00:03:34

or I will command them.

00:03:36--> 00:03:52

So yeah, Ali Salaam, he said, I fear that if you proceed me in this, then the earth will swallow me up or I will be punished. So he gathered the people in herbatint noctus, which is Jerusalem.

00:03:53--> 00:03:59

And the people feel domesticated until they sat upon its balconies.

00:04:01--> 00:04:11

And so once they had gathered, he said, Indeed, Allah has commanded me with five commandments, to abide by them, and to command you to abide by them.

00:04:12--> 00:04:18

The first of them is that you worship Allah and do not associate any partners with him.

00:04:20--> 00:04:46

The Parable of the one who associates others with Allah is that of a man who buys purchases a sleeve with his own money, his gold, his silver, and then he says to his slave, this is my home, and this is my business, take care of it and work and give me the profits.

00:04:48--> 00:04:53

So the sleeve, he takes care of the property he works.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

But then he gives the profits to someone else other than his master.

00:05:01--> 00:05:09

Which of you would like to have a sleeve like that? Who would be pleased to have a sleeve like this?

00:05:13--> 00:05:21

And so, first of all, this Hadeeth, as we mentioned, is narrated by Timothy, and even recommend in his Muslim.

00:05:23--> 00:05:35

As for its authenticity, it has been graded as being authentic by many scholars of Hadith, including Timothy himself, and even uzima

00:05:36--> 00:05:38

as well as been a ban

00:05:40--> 00:05:42

and and hacking. And

00:05:44--> 00:05:53

from the present scholars or the scholars of this past century, she Ll Bernie, also graded as being authentic.

00:05:54--> 00:05:55

Now this Hadeeth

00:05:56--> 00:05:57

Economic Committee,

00:05:59--> 00:06:09

I knew read it directly from who who was the narrator who he heard it from, it was none other than emammal Buhari.

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

And so

00:06:13--> 00:06:14

even on materials he

00:06:15--> 00:06:22

has several Hadith that he narrated from emammal Buhari and this is one of those Hadith.

00:06:26--> 00:06:27

Now this heavy,

00:06:28--> 00:06:31

was mentioned by ignore a year

00:06:33--> 00:06:37

in his great book, and well below

00:06:38--> 00:06:43

that why below so YouTube, which is a book that he wrote,

00:06:45--> 00:06:46


00:06:47--> 00:06:55

the importance of Vicar, the remembrance of Allah, and in which he compiled various of the car and do as

00:06:57--> 00:07:04

and he explained each of these parables mentioned in this Hadeeth, one by one

00:07:06--> 00:07:17

because one of the parables mentioned in this hadith as we will come across, which is the last parable is concerning Vicar, which is the topic of his book.

00:07:19--> 00:07:27

And so he went into detailed discussion explaining each one of these parables, and so we will use his explanation in sha Allah who to Allah.

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

And so, if you look at him after mentioning this long Hadith, at the end, after mentioning the Hadith, he says, The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam mentioned in this authentic and tremendous ad, which every muscle should memorize and understand that which saves a person from shaitan, and that which the servant achieves a victory and safety in the dunya and in the alpha.

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

And so, as we can see, this was this Hadeeth

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

in it, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

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

tells us

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


00:08:15--> 00:08:26

five things that Allah Subhana Allah commanded, yeah, even Zakaria to command then he is right width. So what are these five things?

00:08:27--> 00:08:28

In brief,

00:08:29--> 00:08:30

the first is

00:08:33--> 00:08:33


00:08:35--> 00:09:06

and worshiping a lot alone, the second is assala. The third is fasting. The fourth is giving in sadhaka. And the fifth is the deker. the remembrance of Allah. What do we notice from these five things? That they are similar to the five pillars of Islam that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us? The only difference is the last one which is an edge, and that's because Hajj to Mecca was not

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

a part of

00:09:10--> 00:09:13

the obligations upon Benny is right.

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

But nonetheless,

00:09:18--> 00:09:31

it was substituted with Vicar, and the vicar of Allah is a very crucial part of the Hajj that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the Quran when talking about hedge Allah mentions in it

00:09:32--> 00:09:34

the importance of Vicar

00:09:36--> 00:09:39

And so, in the first parable that we have in this hadith

00:09:41--> 00:09:44

we have the example of the Masoretic,

00:09:46--> 00:09:52

the one who associates partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala in his worship

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

and so

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

he is like someone who

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

buys a slave with his wealth, owning it, possessing it, and then he identifies to him, he explained to the slave that is my house.

00:10:13--> 00:10:14


00:10:15--> 00:10:18

you know, this is my business, maybe he had a form.

00:10:20--> 00:10:25

And so, he told us, they take care of it, and work

00:10:27--> 00:10:32

and give me the earnings, whatever you, whatever profits you make, bring it back to me.

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

So the sleeve, he works.

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

But instead of

00:10:41--> 00:10:45

giving the profits to the master, he decides to give it to others.

00:10:47--> 00:10:49

And so likewise is the machete

00:10:50--> 00:11:04

who works for other than Allah, in the land of Allah, devoting his worship to the enemy of Allah, through the blessings of Allah subhana wa Tada.

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

And so it's obvious that such a master

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

who has such a slave, it's obvious that he would be extremely disappointed

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

with his slave who acts like this,

00:11:20--> 00:11:23

causing him to become angry, causing him to curse him

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

and not showing any mercy to him.

00:11:32--> 00:11:39

Even though, in the end of the day, he is a creative being just like himself, both of them are human beings.

00:11:40--> 00:11:48

And both are living under the blessings of Allah subhana wa Tada. So now how about

00:11:49--> 00:11:51

a lot the Lord of the worlds

00:11:52--> 00:12:04

The one who everything is in his possession, including us, and including everything around us, how would he sort of had a huhtala be okay

00:12:06--> 00:12:08

with his creation

00:12:10--> 00:12:14

with us, whom he provides

00:12:16--> 00:12:21

and give his us, He created us, and he provides for us and he takes care of us.

00:12:23--> 00:12:29

How would he be pleased and be fine with us, after giving us all of that,

00:12:30--> 00:12:37

that He has given to us of blessings? How would he be fine with us directing now our a better

00:12:38--> 00:12:41

to other than Him subhanho wa Taala.

00:12:44--> 00:12:47

So this is the point that, you know,

00:12:48--> 00:12:51

this was the point behind the parable, the message that

00:12:53--> 00:12:56

was being conveyed through this parable is

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

the danger of shift.

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

And the reason why Allah subhanho wa Taala is not pleased with the mushrik.

00:13:08--> 00:13:10

And so, if you were to look at these mushrikeen

00:13:12--> 00:13:25

these people who director are bad to other than Allah subhanho wa Taala, whether it be idols, whether it be human beings, dead or alive, whatever it be,

00:13:26--> 00:13:31

you find that they are deeply attached to their object of worship,

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

loving them,

00:13:35--> 00:13:38

fearing them, seeking their pleasure

00:13:39--> 00:13:41

fearing their displeasure,

00:13:43--> 00:13:47

far more than their love for a lot, your fear of a lot

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

seeking pleasure of a lot

00:13:52--> 00:13:57

seeking to not earn the displeasure and the anger of Allah

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

and this is as Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us

00:14:03--> 00:14:12

in Surah Al Baqarah wamena nasci mania Tokido mindu nila he and then you have buena whom Kabila

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

that among people are those who take as rivals besides Allah

00:14:21--> 00:14:22

whom they love,

00:14:24--> 00:14:26

as they should be loving a lot.

00:14:27--> 00:14:33

One lady in Amman, I should do have delila as for those who believe they have more love

00:14:35--> 00:14:37

for Allah than these people.

00:14:39--> 00:14:47

And so the person of tawheed the person who only worships Allah only directs his rabada to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

is like a slave

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

who understand his status as a slave and he understands the status of his master

00:15:01--> 00:15:17

The one who own owns him, the one who he must attend to the one who has to give his profits, his earnings to him and not to anyone else. And so he serves him. And he devotes everything for him alone, not to anyone else.

00:15:18--> 00:15:20

And so the person have told she'd

00:15:21--> 00:15:32

he understands the relationship between the creator and the created. And he perfectly comprehends the meaning of

00:15:34--> 00:15:48

the Lordship of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Ruby of Allah, that Allah is the one who created me. And he is the one who brought me into this world, and he's the one who has been providing for me,

00:15:49--> 00:15:51

and continues to provide for me

00:15:53--> 00:15:57

until this necessitates, this automatically necessitates

00:15:58--> 00:15:58

for me,

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

to worship Him alone,

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

and not to direct my dad, to other than Him.

00:16:08--> 00:16:12

And so among the lessons that we can learn from this, from this first parable

00:16:14--> 00:16:20

is, first of all, that *, associating partners with Allah

00:16:21--> 00:16:23

is logically invalid.

00:16:26--> 00:16:35

And, logically speaking, it doesn't make sense, from so many different angles, including this one that was mentioned in this hadith

00:16:37--> 00:16:46

that it doesn't make sense for you to be directing your, your devotion, your a bad

00:16:48--> 00:16:49

your sacrifice

00:16:50--> 00:16:57

to creative beings, when they haven't provided you with anything.

00:16:59--> 00:17:09

And neglecting, neglecting, directing your EDA to the one who the one who created you, and the one who, who gives you.

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

Also, among the lessons that we learned from this video is

00:17:19--> 00:17:20

the gravity of

00:17:23--> 00:17:24

the danger of it.

00:17:27--> 00:17:35

And how because of the gravity of chick, it is the only sin that Allah subhanho wa Taala will not forgive.

00:17:38--> 00:17:43

It is the only sin that Allah subhanho wa Taala will never forgive and what we mean by that

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

is, as long as a person dies upon that sin,

00:17:50--> 00:17:52

then Allah will never forgive it.

00:17:54--> 00:17:58

Not because Allah subhana wa Taala cannot forgive

00:17:59--> 00:18:01

or that he is not merciful enough

00:18:03--> 00:18:05

to forgive such a person.

00:18:06--> 00:18:13

But rather because the mushrik does not deserve that forgiveness.

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

He doesn't deserve that Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala

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

as we have seen through this example of, you know, a slave doing this with his master,

00:18:28--> 00:18:30

if he persists in the heart,

00:18:31--> 00:18:39

if he persists in, you know, taking his earnings, his profit and giving it to others, and not bringing it back to the master.

00:18:40--> 00:18:42

Does he deserve any mercy?

00:18:43--> 00:18:44


00:18:45--> 00:18:47

he deserve reward?

00:18:49--> 00:18:50

Or does he deserve punishment?

00:18:52--> 00:19:01

Is this why Allah Subhana Allah says, In Allaha Lai Yaga funeral a new Shoraka busy while I do not allocate.

00:19:04--> 00:19:06

The award does not forgive

00:19:07--> 00:19:12

anyone who associates partners with him. But he forgives besides that.

00:19:14--> 00:19:17

He forgives anything besides that for whomever He wills.

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

So what that means is

00:19:21--> 00:19:24

that there are sins that we may commit,

00:19:25--> 00:19:30

even if we don't repent from them, and we are deserving of punishment in the ephemera.

00:19:33--> 00:19:36

They could be waived these punishments could be waived

00:19:37--> 00:19:39

due to certain other factors.

00:19:42--> 00:19:46

But the only sin that cannot be waived, that cannot

00:19:48--> 00:19:53

be forgiven is the sin of ship if a person dies upon that,

00:19:54--> 00:20:00

and so he will abide. He will abide in Hellfire forever as

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned and Jenna

00:20:04--> 00:20:05


00:20:06--> 00:20:08

he will never be able to enter Jenna. And so

00:20:10--> 00:20:37

the key to the door of Jenna is still heat. Without that key, a person can never a person can never enter Jenna as Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in sort of our off, that the doors of Jenna will remain shut for the kuffaar and emotionally keen, and they will never be able to enter agenda until

00:20:38--> 00:20:49

a camel can enter through the tip of a needle, meaning just like this is impossible. Likewise, a mushnik entering gender is impossible.

00:20:52--> 00:21:02

And this is also why Allah subhanho wa Taala referred to ship as the greatest injustice, how there is no greater injustice, then ship

00:21:04--> 00:21:12

in no inner sharika Laval manavi ship is a great injustice there is no greater injustice than that.

00:21:14--> 00:21:17

Why is it such an injustice because of what we explained

00:21:18--> 00:21:25

how Allah is the one who created you, and He is the one who provides for you constantly throughout your life.

00:21:26--> 00:21:27

And then

00:21:28--> 00:21:38

you give tanks and show gratitude to other than Him subhanho wa Taala if this is not injustice, then what is injustice.

00:21:41--> 00:21:43

And finally, among the lessons that we learned from this hadith is

00:21:45--> 00:21:53

that being devoted to Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, referring all matters to him alone.

00:21:54--> 00:21:55


00:21:58--> 00:22:06

on the other hand, devoting yourself to others, referring all matters to others.

00:22:10--> 00:22:30

These two things can never come together, there are two opposites, then it can never come together. Because tawheed and ship are two opposites that repel one another. And they can never be compared. a mushrik is not like a person of tawheed on what mean is not like a coffee.

00:22:31--> 00:22:35

And so just like a slave, who has a master

00:22:37--> 00:22:59

who he obeys. And, you know he brings his profits to him can never be compared to a disobedient slave who gives his profits to others and not to his master. Just like these two can never be compared. Likewise, the person of tawheed can never be compared to the mushnik

00:23:01--> 00:23:10

the truth can ever be compared of a ninja anonymously. Mina kelimutu remain calm keep it cool Allah subhanho wa Taala says, shall we make

00:23:12--> 00:23:18

the majority mean the criminals and the kuffaar Shall we equate them to the Muslims.

00:23:21--> 00:23:24

And so this is the first parable that we have in this video.
