Brothers and sisters in Islam, I was prepared to talk about scenes from Judgment Day. But I found it again necessary to
go into a subject, which some of you may not enjoy. But it's needed because there is a lot of debate, especially amongst the Muslim community in the United States. And a lot of the people Alhamdulillah the look to us here in Colorado. What do we say about this particular trending that is going on around some of the students of knowledge in the United States of America.
And let me begin by saying the following. This is an introduction
minalima alumi mina Dini.
This is a terminology that the scholars use, regarding knowledge depth, no two can deny it's crystal clear from the text.
How you translate that it's knowing from the religion by necessity. It's known from the religion by necessity, you have to pray five times. Who doesn't know that?
You're not praying, there is something wrong with you.
It's knowing it's not something that you still need to be explained. One of the things which knowing from the religion by necessity that we're here
in this world for a duration of time to be tested.
olevia holla pinata well hyah Talia blue, Allah subhana wa tada created death alive to test you
in Gianna now.
Lena blue, Whom are you whom, Salam Allah. Indeed, we have placed all these arguments, all this declaration that you see in this universe to be tested. One abbulu lucam be Sheree while hiring fitna and you will be tested with good things and bad things according to you.
Now, the scholars categorize the scholars of Lacan nakida, not jurist, the scholars of theology. they categorize the tests into two categories. Category number one, le pillar, colonial cadre. What does it mean? being tested regarding things which Allah ordained W.
You have no input into it. You didn't choose your best
They, you didn't choose your birthplace, you didn't choose your parents.
You didn't choose that is something that Allah subhanho wa Taala wrote upon you the pillar and other
things that allow you didn't choose your brothers. You didn't choose your mother.
Now for you to pass that test that I'm gonna do this quickly because this is not my subject for you to pass the test two things.
being patient when you think it's bad
and being grateful when you see it good.
That's it. That's how you pass the test. And this is by the way easy.
This test is very easy, because you have no choice.
Some people love test them with things they jump up and down for a month Why me? Why me? Why me why well, okay, be patient. You have no resource petitions.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Hadith Abuja tribe of Rumi. He pierced the tomb. In one beautiful Hadith. Salima Muslim caught us on the lava usnm Agia belly Emeril Minh, in Kula hula hoop
and amazed at the lifestyle of a believer it's all good in a saga
when he's infected with something that he considers to be that he's patient, it's good for you in your facade
in navaho, soldering if I sit here and talk about the virtue and the merits of patients out of this world
we're in asaba, through nama, shocker.
And when he receives a bounty from Allah,
not just in language rather in action, you pass that that test, you're the hero.
You're, you know, you're what is the word here?
Your vision is
the school and then you pass the test. You're good to go.
ala Nina savarin, when the nama Mina, Shakira meet me amongst those, when they are given a bounty, I'm grateful. And when I am being tested with a calamity and patient, so that's the first test easy.
Again, because we have no choice here is the second one.
Le Tila shomrei.
The pillar fish are our well
being tested regarding believing or not believing?
It's a test. Layla ilaha illAllah. Muhammad Rasulullah.
Well, this one is difficult, because we have the freedom of choice.
You're not forced. You have to make the call in your own
Imagine the heavens and the earth, they refuse to take on that decision. making that decision in our
in our view of the world, Japan abena Yamuna. housh takuna, minha, wahama halycon, said, Enough who can have lumen? Jehovah?
We, we believe that we said okay, we're gonna do it. It's like a lot of the contracts. Okay, I'll do this. Imagine how many Yes? Did you say to your wife before marriage, just count how many now you're doing? just list them? Will you do this? Will you do this? Will you do this? Yes, yes, yes, yes.
Well, it's also difficult because we have a lot of obstacles in the way.
And that takes me to my subject of today.
One of these obstacles is the intellect.
So Allah gives you a brain.
You're supposed to use it to help you believe in him.
Do you use that brain to reject and you say that revelation doesn't make sense to me.
I got I got what we got to interpret differently because
again, you're addressing the subject. from an academic point of view.
You have the shavonne
units units once the quick passing units, ones that
you want to do need.
You have that
The human being the friends will want you to believe in Allah they want you to, to be out there with them drinking and partying and doing all these things. So but one of these obstacles which is related to my subject today is intellect.
And there is a question Yes, well, that is a debate
from the get go.
What is the relationship between the human intellect and the revelation? What comes first? What comes second.
And that's the issue.
A lock, one knock brothers and sisters in Islam.
Allah is a bounty, which Allah subhana wa God,
given the human
in a way, and in a way, Allah subhanho wa Taala has
distinguished us from the rest of the creations with that
And unfortunately, when we address the subject as Muslims, a lot of the so called progressive
And we really have to define what progressive is, you know, I have an iPhone right here. And I have a Mac and if you go Mac, you can go back we know that. So what is progressive? I mean, is it this is something that you wake up with you take a bill when you become progressive. I mean, I mean, what is that? Is it
It's a faculty that Allah subhanho wa Taala given to us, to us in a certain school.
And Allah subhanho wa Taala honors
one of the five holistic aims of Islam imagine all they do and do not do.
Do this do not do this in Islam. We're meant to protect five things. Number one, you religion. Number two, the life the human life. Number three, the lineage the family.
The progeny, look at number four, have
That is why there is a criminal punishment in Islam. But listen, if we have an Islamic law, we have a cost and all of this for people who drink Have you had to show why? There have been
some of you may hear this for the first time.
If you hit somebody
and you end up causing them to lose their mind become crazy and the head comes here you will have to give that person a fool around him like you killed them. Dr. Campbell
Look at this. I know a lot of you hear this for the first time
either I've had
the mean a nurse la casa de tune Camila and Naka Patel
as if you killed them.
Florence, not Portugal. Different to a finger or something if Portugal rents
Why is it unlawful to go to fortune tellers?
People who claim that they know the answer
because the crisis of Iraq
after a rough and facade Dhaka hufa patka farabi Mountains Isla de Mohamed Salah Malaysian
ocean killer and you believe them because that's doesn't work.
What Why, why so many?
You know is haram in Islam? The month of suffer started the Arabs used to have a lot of Omen again is this month? Well I
tell you what is the scope
of our intellect in Islam. Look at this now.
You know, if you're a Christian, with all due respect, and I know we have a Christian here, David, I don't mean to insult
and ask him to explain to you what the Trinity is.
I'm sorry, it doesn't make any intellectually it doesn't make any sense.
You know, you have three components in one it just doesn't suit
intellectually actually Islam invites you to use your intellect to figure out that there is a God
and that is why this is the school motivating you inciting you look at this fellow young Bruna Elan Elijah is a holy
war in a semi he can fall flat where he barely cave and
we're even advocating for Soviet
Flm Jambo era sama info ke femenina was a young
Wow, that's all invitation for you to use what? To travel, look and ponder. Now, when you do this with your intellect, you reach to conclusions and all of them are logical by the logical logical conclusions intellectual. What, number one, this universe has a creative
because what is the
that's the top of the line of intellectual ism of business English intellectuality. Whatever the word is.
Top of the line, there must be a Holic.
can be addressed in Islam, not in a verse, a piece of verse you know what it is? For you? Meanwhile, Ed Shea in Omaha, Lou,
are you created out of nothing? Will you create yourself? The answer is no to both. So there must be a create.
There must. But it doesn't make any sense that things come together by accident like that. It's called work Big, Big Big Bang, Big Bang Bang thing something like that.
Things two things crashed. And that world just
so that's up.
Look at one law you see this we do Your Honor, somebody is messed up all his life is messed up when he begins praying and following the deen and the religion. His life is straight back like an arrow.
Who who made that manuscript who made that curriculum, to fix you to reform you must be a creator. So this is number one. Here's number two. Here's number two, which is very important here. The attributes and the qualities of the Creator must be far greater than what he carry.
intellect intellectual rights fmM, Yahoo.
analysis is the one who creates equal to the one who's created. This is why Islam I teach these kids in the academy everyday worship that create co created Look around you. Jesus is created. The cow in India has created
their own desires, their own desires is created. But we worship the Creator, Allah subhana wa Tada.
Now, Allah subhanho wa Taala qualities and attributes are far greater than us. His knowledge, his wisdom, are far greater wisdom than mine moral knowledge. That is why I cannot use this to pass a judgement on what he revealed. It just doesn't make sense. That's an intellectual
I'm using my intellect here. I haven't used that sticks yet. So this is one.
What else does the What else does Allah ask us to do? Look at the life the biography of the messengers, Mohammed bin has made
a statement out of this world he says if there is something which proves
that Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam is a messenger from Allah is his biography.
Michael how to
meet these, but okay, the guy who did the 100 most influential people
what his number was number one.
And you hear these guys, the prophet consoles, the problems of this world in in a cup of tea or a cup of coffee, I do not need to believe that I do not need that. But that shows you that these guys studied his biography his character. Also Allah wants you to use Look, look at the verse
Marisol having a
look at this messenger
you know before the officers element are feeding and I said this couple of times before and my hope books would delete would that people lifestyle you know before he's trying to change them he's trying to tell them that this is wrong you cannot do this you cannot do that they loved him for 40 years.
For 40 years they are calling
the trustworthy the truth
for 40 years. When did they start going after him when he started telling them drink is haram? Alcohol is haram mortgage is haram user is haram
that's when you do like I don't like this now. This guy wants to
possessed sorcerer live
over De Palma cuyana with elemental coin FC in
Atlanta leverage to feed
the world can we have another foreign? Listen, I don't know how to eat on right. And I spent amongst you for 14 years you guys are competing doing podium and making annual conferences on your hands.
never participated in any of this. This is coming from a lot to me I have no place to change it or do anything about it. So that's the place of intellect brothers and sisters in Islam.
in spite of this
we find people
messing around with the revelation because of their intellectual capacity.
And before I go there
let me throw something
for you to understand the foundation of this
unknown Why is
very hard to believe man said it is not my speech.
And he narrated from abdulkareem of multimedia he
you know what they said?
we're lucky this religion of us in forwards the speech of Allah
is two types about unseen,
unseen things that you do not see. Because they happen in the past. They are happening now but not
within your senses. Or they will happen in the future like yeah, Julian George, this is what triggered all of this.
What What should you do to sleep?
date that negates what suspicion, doubt.
delusion was house. You can't have any of this. Yeah, you can elevate takoyaki but you must have a Wi Fi you must have enough knowledge to provide certainty that you don't question these things.
No, you're trying to find the way to interpret it.
But what is the second half of this? commands? Do do not do
you as a Muslim? What should you do? Send me an alert on puppy compliance.
That's all the religion
what Kelly met Rebecca sweet the weidler
the revelation was fulfilled in truth and injustice all up new Kathy said, Phil,
Sub, everything that Allah says is true.
Okay, even though I cannot judge it with my senses, I can't. But it's true.
People come and blaze their intellect. And this is one of the obstacles which gets a lot of people to feel that
Second test, which is important because, you know, succeeding in that second test, the Hereafter is at stake here. They come and they use their intellect. And unfortunately, I hope
you find this beautiful argument. Oh, losing our youth.
They are going out of Islam. And we got to find a new way to interpret them, you know, telling them that there is two tribes out there hidden behind a barrier. And we discovered all these microscopes and telescopes and satellites. And, you know, our youth is loose, Louis leaving Islam. That sounds wonderful. It is true. Our youth is motivated. This guy calls me the other day. Sure. Can you talk to my son? My son is saying he doesn't believe in God anymore.
Okay, sorry, brother. What's going on? Oh, doesn't make any sense to me. I asked him. Did you go to public school? Yes. Elementary. Yes. Secondary. What is the second? middle? Yes. You're in college now. Right? Yes. Oh, that's that's where the problem is my brothers. That's where the problem is.
Oh, that's where the problem is? You.
By the way, they're asleep.
Some of you if I tell you send your children to Catholic school,
what is the first thing that is gonna come to your mind? Oh, there's gonna be a Christian. No, I'm sorry to tell you this. If you send your children to public schools, you're teaching them atheism.
That's what they learn.
That's what they get rooted in. This is the brainwashing that brainstorm. Day in, day out day in day out, then you come and tell him to take a look at what is it
doesn't make sense to me. Meanwhile, how much of the Quran did they get?
That they learned what a man is what actually dies? What the heat is? Did they learn how to deal with the text? No, they did not.
But that is the problem. But you see the solution? is you take care of the education. If you have children, whether you correct what they learn wrong in public schools, because you cannot afford Islamic schools, or you send them to Islamic schools. And
send them to Kherson view Academy, take them home schooling don't link in here, I'm telling you don't take them to public schools. Because that's what you're teaching them. Unless I have a solution for you, I have a solution for you. Every single day you
open the box. What did you learn today? Okay, this is not Islamic. This is not what Islam teaches. This is actually in my opinion, the ideal solution,
you're going to end up with a guy who has both sides of the story. This is going to be the best guy. But if you can do that, a lot of us when our children come home with a formula, I don't have time to give him the phone says he doesn't distract you. You're going to look into his textbook and what he learned a lot that this kicktail the hammer of this teacher told to him, give me a break. With this busy lifestyle of us we didn't have it. We don't have the time you don't have the luxury of time. But you see, the problem is anyone any students of knowledge,
or any so called scholars would drive that way. Listen, you're gonna have a lot of fans on Facebook page, I assure you, because we have a pool of
people who want that because they will cultivate it, it was encrypted in them. They will day in and day out, not to accept with certainty and
and not to act without question on documents. So you have a pool of clients. There is no question about it if you're after that as a school or as a barrier. Is this what you want? But you're misguiding people, you're taking people astray.
The last question I want to ask here
can the human intellect oppose the revelation
Alok manak, the columella Lola
a human intellect your scientific findings
your microscopes. Can it appears what Allah revealed?
But before I answer this question, and this is the last thing I'm going to say today,
if Allah subhanho wa Taala breeds
darkness so much in the Quran. And this is also another argument how
see, sometimes people would say something that is right. But their intention is what the
NACA labrys, Allah says in the Quran,
all of this is
why even Allah subhana wa Taala limited the function of the intellect, of the human heart, the brain, to certain areas like I explained earlier, not beyond that, multiple reasons. Number one,
you cannot function without the senses.
your ankle is dependent on the eye, on the E,
on the touch. So your ankle is not an independent, your app is fed from the six senses or the five senses, whatever you want to call it.
So this is one
it was sufficient for the human to believe in Allah, why messengers and books were reviewed? Answer me why there was a need for a messenger
noise, if you would your intellectual capacity can reach to worship only Allah why there is a need then for not answer me.
for you here is a great piece here is
our intellects are not alike.
You have your brain I have my brain he has his brain
and not only individuals but from America that people in America they think like that people in Egypt to Pakistan different
so how are you going to
adjust just difficult hard, you cannot do it. So what is the one thing that is steady here consistent? Is that not the revelation from Allah
but our intellectual
finding? Also from time to time? At one stage people did not believe in that virus microscope until they discovered the virus was in existence.
Why didn't you apply the same analogy? Huh?
Why because they are too big for your brain.
That's it for this is the law to this brothers and sisters Islam before I answer the question in sha Allah, Who is the first being who used the intellect
Come on say it. Please.
What's the net will Jamil?
Allah Allah Allah
Allah yaku haha Whoa, who is this surreal
Why should one know Mohammedan
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa. He was Harvey you as well.
While I'm in
we come to the most important piece of my sermon today.
Can the human intellect oppose contradict that revelation is small.
I'm gonna say it in Arabic first, and I will explain the meanings in English.
Allah Hello sorry, who lair you are not Lhasa.
For a number
of one well yes I do love Who are you a
fell levy Haleakala
Levy, Angela Nakula, Lucia flew
for kafer Yun Zulu Cheyenne. Did you see?
Here's the meanings
are bright, straightforward, not
wishy washy intellect will never oppose the revelation. Why
rather rather it will support it it will validate it even though I have some reservations regarding that translation because you don't validate the revelation.
You can do that but it will support will condone it
it will support it. So if I delay he asked for Scylla salary him Tina Phil.
Was he unforeseen?
Our music fever of beaker and Nevada coalition in Shaheed we shall show them the human
universe that discovers that we reach every, every decade of the century and in themselves, in their own selves until they testify that this is the truth from Allah.
So your scientific discoveries, how many then per you look at the Imperial Imperial the two seas not mixing Sultan
who told him
so many scientific findings that are in the revelation? So accept this one until Allah give you what
believe it until allottee to it that's how you should do it. But yes, hello, who are you? Why?
Why the intellect which is a bright that will support the the Revelation the Quran and soon Why?
Because the source is one who created the app
who created the intellect who brought down the dean the revolution. So it is impossible for Allah to bring down something which will convert your intellect it just that's an intellectual argument I'm sorry if you are a progressive or I'm pretty progressive right here. That's a very progressive economic cycle. It's never gonna tell me
For you fair either, had that statement is not over yet is the completion of it. That either has
been a lucky one knock when you find conflict contradiction in between your intellectual, your evolution, your scientific finding and the revelation. What should you do?
There are two two choices there is no third to them.
Whether the text is not authentic
the brother when he was explaining that
he went after live narration of eternity that every single day
they go and drive to the door. I said baba baba By the way, by the way, I don't think this hadith is only one miracle
is looking for what the Muslim did not say that they did everyday.
the people who take you as a role model, they learned religion from you feel alone. So this is what number one without the text is not authentic, then you have to look at the text. But what is the other option? You did not understand it or you're actually seeking to understand more than what it should and leave it at that.
and sisters in Islam in closing here
when it comes to this subject, we are three schools.
You choose the same and we live in America. America guarantees vertex liberties regarding sexual preferences. Imagine this not religious. Today, brother chapters send me that
There is she a Masjid is opening up guess what is the name of the masjid?
Take a guess Machito hate.
they like the need.
Maybe though he is working and hamdulillah it's a free country, you can do whatever you want to do. Nobody's gonna force you to follow the service.
The first school of thought or the first
way I asked a law I'm not claiming I'm one of them I asked a lot that I belong to it
is the way that the Sahaba
and their message the message of Salah salamander companions in the V decisis from the Prophet Rudolf rasulillah until the year 221. After
you cut the moon and nakhla Allah Lockley when there is a contradiction, and the text is authentic, then you gave B dominance to the revolution. Leave it
Have you ever heard any of them say that they are like zombies, zombies, zombies?
so the koalas smell lemmya A betta Kimo who build a fee for Allah did not demand from us to figure out how about once it comes to unseen you
don't get stuck the
does now if you want to find out the reason for every little thing. And you have
what is the difference between you and somebody?
In the unseen family man.
You tell me how did you see right now? You know maybe the example I should use you. Oh guys, by the way, Salomon Brothers brothers This is last night by the way. I went to the moon and I came down
I was up to the moon they
come on shift.
So we are gonna pull me down here, sir. Oh, imagine the prophets Allah Salim in Makkah. 14 140 years ago, he came to them and he said what? Last night I went to tourism.
Failure intellect by
failing to look at the sun Muslims left Islam.
Some Sahaba left Islam because of this.
Look at the man here. authenticating the text. Did he say that?
Unless you have a different agenda here. You see the agenda? I really would love for you. To tell us what is your
What is your methodology to understand the Quran and Sunnah. Because another school of thought.
What will not
lose anything that doesn't correspond to the text, they give dominance or authority to the art.
And I want to tell you something they received the head of the Islamic State. I know this word is not very favored. But
the sort of Harun Rashid, about the ideology of intellectual ideology. And some of you may
been flagged and all of this, this is all about that intellectual.
And anybody who's not entitled
to go until the people
that you feel will manage Lastly, there is no clock.
these kids, they listen to your
lectures. You tell them about
what happened, what changed the why it doesn't make any sense anymore. Why? Just let us know that this is now no longer human half of accepting the Quran and the Sunnah. You will get everybody to sleep. Because Listen, we're teaching people
This is what we teach the people and we kill them. This is how you deal with them and listen, just make it clear. There is nothing wrong with that. The third group brothers and sisters in Islam is the wishy washy in between. Okay, this one, let's interpret it reinterpreted, redefine it in a way so it makes sense. But this one leave it alone.
here and there
but if you make a wish today, make a wish to be amongst the first of those. The table
you set the bar
between your claim
