my brothers and sisters we continue in our series of reminders and lectures about the challenges that we are facing in 2021 and which we will continue to face in the foreseeable future and what we need to do the solutions inshallah, to those challenges.

00:01:05--> 00:01:50

We started talking about the role of science in our society last Juma and I would like to continue with that insha Allah. Science is the tool to view the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala by the lens that we see with which is our heart. But to see clearly that lens was first being purified and cleansed of all quoting of all the false glory of the world, and burnished with the Polish of Allah subhanaw taala. Sasha is all and lighted with the knower of His love. Only then can the heart see as it is supposed to and recognize Allah subhanho wa Taala in his creation,

00:01:51--> 00:02:45

that is the importance of mosquito knifes. And that is why Allah subhanaw taala said about those who look at his creation, but do not see His signs. He's he said, verily, it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts that which are in the breasts that grow blind. Allah subhanaw taala said, I was we live in a shutdown regime. I follow me as you fill out the Fatah Khun Allah home coleauxv Yaki Luna via Oh as I know, yes, bear on our behalf. For in LA Amal, our SAR Wallach in Tama kulu Latif, is sudo, which means I'm not very interesting surgeon so to hedge, have they not traveled to the land, and have the hearts were with to understand, and yours with which to hear.

00:02:45--> 00:03:30

Verily, it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts which are in the breasts that grow blind. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us live hearts. Medical Research today tells us that the heart has neurons, and is the seat of understanding and memory, like the brain, and it's not simply a pump. So what is needed what is required? First, we need to acknowledge and accept the definition of intelligence and understanding that Allah subhanaw taala gave us which is people who recognize him and are obedient to Him, people who are concerned about his pleasure and who are willing to live their lives in the way that he ordered gelato.

00:03:31--> 00:04:23

The meaning of Vicar standing sitting and lying down is our whole life in all its aspects. That is where intelligence begins. The one who does not know his creator, does not recognize him, and is not connected to him is not intelligent. It's not about an IQ score. To know Allah subhanho wa Taala and to remember him in all aspects of life does two very important things. It makes us cautious, and it makes us confidence, confident, cautious about our speech and actions to ensure that we don't do anything that can displease Allah. This caution is not anxiety and fearfulness. It is concerned out of love and all and respect for Allah subhanho wa Taala and is a shield against all sin and

00:04:23--> 00:04:59

disobedience. Such a person understands that everything in life, all success, all power, all happiness, all wealth, begins and ends with earning the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala if it is earned and used for Allah subhanho wa Taala as pleasure, it is good and a blessing. If not, it is evil and a curse. A person who's blessed with this caution uses a single criterion to judge any potential decision point. That is will this please allow

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

If so he does it. If not, he does not do it. And if he is in doubt, he waits to clarify before acting. This simplifies life and makes it stress free. When you are concerned about the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala it frees you from every other concern.

00:05:20--> 00:06:19

The great poet, a lover Barbara Huntelaar, he said in his poem, Islam or musalman, in his book called xrb Kareem, he said, boggle Cubase pure art a Amane bundle cape is pure heart Zamani, ma I got a chippy hi Adam. Java Hey lotto man that is such that you said to get some extra Hey, Hazara such don't say that I Adweek on a jet. He said which means we changed disguises they come in every age, though Adam which is mankind is old, Latin melotte are young. The idols which we worship are young. This one such that that you think is difficult, frees mankind from 1000 such that's so beautiful is this religion of ours if you only understand and practice it,

00:06:20--> 00:06:24

in it our solutions for all that ails us.

00:06:25--> 00:06:46

If only we are ready to see an act. The second thing that drew intelligence does for the one who knows Allah subhana wa tada is that it makes him confident, confident that Allah Subhana Allah is with him wherever he is, as Allah promised, well, American in America,

00:06:48--> 00:07:38

he is with you, wherever you are confident that he can call on Allah subhanho wa Taala for anything he needs, for protection for aid and help and comfort in every situation in his life. The more he understands Allah, and becomes conscious of His glory and majesty, the more he will appreciate Islam and being a Muslim, and the greater will be his desire to please Allah general. It is a virtuous cycle where obedience increases by yet the awareness of being with Allah and confidence. Allah Subhana Allah, Allah azza wa jal said about those who know Him and OBEY Him that is the matakohe in Allah Hama, Allah Zina taco, wala z no mercy No, truly Allah subhanho wa Taala is with those who

00:07:38--> 00:07:43

have his taqwa. And those who are mercy known people who do SL.

00:07:44--> 00:07:54

If Allah is with us, who do we need to fear? Allah subhana wa danijela asked us, Allah is Allah ob cough in AB de Bella?

00:07:55--> 00:07:58

Is it not sufficient? is Allah not sufficient for Islam?

00:08:01--> 00:08:52

That is the confidence that the puppy feels this is the real meaning of zikalala it is not merely repeating a name or attribute of Allah subhanho wa Taala a certain number of times. It is to monitor that effect the effect of that on the heart. Allah Jalla Jalla who told us that his zeker has a measurable effect on the heart. He said in our book minion Allah Xena is a zookeeper Allahu wa Jalla kulu whom ye de Juliet Allah He Maya to ozada to me mana wa Robbie mijatovic alone. He said the believers are only those who and Allah subhanho wa Taala is mentioned their hearts Shiva with the all and glory of Allah. And when his eyes are recited unto them, they the ayat increase their faith,

00:08:52--> 00:08:56

and they put their trust in the rub alone, gelato

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

lack an intelligent farmer prepares the soil before he plants the seed because he knows that the best seed will fail if the soil is dead or toxic.

00:09:10--> 00:09:22

The effect of the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala is visible only in our heart that is free from all toxicity and is fertile with a yearning to know Allah subhanho wa Taala and to connect with him.

00:09:24--> 00:10:00

Everything begins with mosquito knifes Butterbeer to lock lock Duska and tarbiyah is a contact sport. It is learn under the supervision of a chef who has himself been through the mill under his Muslim under his mentor. It is not achieved by reading books or remotely on zoo. You need to go to a scholar who is trained to guide you. He will diagnose your sickness your problem and administer the cure and monitor your progress. This is not a six or eight year course with

00:10:00--> 00:10:17

exam at the end. The exam in this is at the end of every interaction every thought, and its duration is as long as it takes. That is what Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam concentrated on through the Macan period.

00:10:18--> 00:11:11

Finally, this guy's not a degree or a Santa or an ijazah. There is no final arrived state where you are someone can say he has passed. He has achieved Ischia, the one who believes that about himself is sitting in the lap of shaytan. In the words of Abdullah Massoud alano, who said whoever wants to follow a path, let him follow the path of one who has died for the living are not safe from fitna. I mean the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa he was Abu Salah. They were the best of this oma, the purest in heart, the deepest in knowledge, and the most straightforward, Allah subhanho wa Taala chose them to accompany his prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and establish his religion.

00:11:11--> 00:11:24

So recognize their status and follow in their footsteps and adhere as much as you can to their examples of conduct and attitude for they followed through guidance.

00:11:26--> 00:11:46

Without Duska tarbiyah no amount of book learning helps Allah Allah Allah who mentioned those who had a lot of book learning, but succeeded only in earning his anger and compared them to donkeys carrying books, commerce led Hema yeah Emmylou as far as

00:11:47--> 00:12:19

the knowledge of a scholar is only what is visible in his speech, and actions. Nothing more. Everything else is a hedge against him on the Day of Judgment. May Allah subhanaw taala protect us from ourselves in the eye about Allah Al Bab, people of intelligence and understanding Allah azza wa jal use the preposition and wow, what when you refer to what people will know him are concerned about his pleasure. They do.

00:12:20--> 00:12:24

Remember that, grammatically speaking that ayah would be

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

grammatically correct, as a correct sentence if Allah had used or out instead of Wow, but he didn't. The IRS speaks clearly about two qualities of people of intelligence that they have Taqwa and then wearing the glasses of taqwa the look at creation. figure of our team a lot, comprises and contains everything you can imagine, in the field of scientific research, investigation, experimentation, exploration, analysis, testing verification, not only does Islam encourage Muslims to do all these things, but calls this the second part of the two definition a two part definition of a person of intelligence.

00:13:14--> 00:13:41

The key is to recognize that Allah Jalla Jalla, who said the sequence for the two when we broke the sequence, and created a gap between zikalala and figure fees Mr. De volare, we lost the Baraka of the sequence, it no longer delivered to us the result which Allah subhanho wa Taala promised, which is the Enlightenment with which a person will say, Robin, Allah, Allah pata

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

de la.

00:13:45--> 00:13:48

Nick Suba, Hanukkah, Sakina.

00:13:52--> 00:14:00

Our Rob, you have not created all this without purpose. Glory be to You give us salvation from the fire.

00:14:01--> 00:14:30

This is our crime. And we have paid for it for centuries. I submit to you my brothers and sisters that it is time to change high time if we want to break out of the malaise that ails us and is the reason for our decline into mental and intellectual slavery. They ask what must change in education I say everything. If you are operating for cancer, you do not remove it one cell at a time.

00:14:31--> 00:14:49

What do you do? Do you remove it one cell at a time or you remove the whole thing? That is the answer to all your next comment before you make it that is let us do it gradually. There are seven things we must change in how we educate.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

First, train teachers to teach in a way that may that they may never have done before. It is better to start with new

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

People rather than trying to retrain older people, that has been my experience, the key quality to look for is people who are willing to learn and change. let students assess teachers every quarter, and have annual skill development training for the teachers. The hallmark of a good teacher is one who seeks to work in this environment. If they don't like it, let them go. Don't waste too much time trying to convince them. We don't need reluctant people who need a job. We need enthusiastic people answering a calling.

00:15:36--> 00:16:18

Number two, design the curriculum and teaching methodology for this new way. Today, the integrated teaching method, integrating Islam and science within a framework of character building and connecting to Allah, Does God Exist anywhere on the surface of this planet? Our education is fractured and predicated on the worst possible device as a business. commercialization of education and public health are the two worst crimes committed on society. But that's another discussion. We must integrate Islam and Zions because Allah told us to do so.

00:16:19--> 00:17:09

To do that, our Allah must respect scientists and consult with them, and vice versa. The challenge in driving a lot of change, including this one is that those who are the leaders today benefit from the status quo, so they will never change. The key therefore, is to start a pilot project to prove the concept and then present it to the world as evidence that this method works. When the world sees scientists standing on the member of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and all ama performing brain surgery and leading space exploration missions. It will accept the truth that Allah subhanho wa Taala stated that his creation is replete with the signs of His glory and majesty. That is our

00:17:09--> 00:17:10

task.

00:17:11--> 00:17:51

Number three, we must start with primary education and continue until the age of 15. No more than 10 years of schooling from age five to 15. After that students will be ready for the world. This is not about University, it is about the foundation, the very basics, without which the edifice that stands on it will collapse. It needs those who like the rocks that go into the foundation of any great structure are willing to work unsung and unknown, so that the structure of the new society can be created and mature.

00:17:52--> 00:18:41

With this training, the child can go to any college or live in any society, and he or she will become the game changer and not upon to be moved around the board by others. Number four, education must first and foremost start with teaching values, ethics and morals. This is not a this is not in a special class, but the culture of high ethical and moral character on which everything else runs. This culture must be visible on the playing field in science and religious studies. In the classes in the dining room in the hospital, it must be visible and how we treat others. No matter who they may be. It must be visible and how we pray, how we speak how we relate to our neighbors and society.

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

It must be visible in every waking moment in our lives. It is essential to know the boundaries of anything that is a safety requirement in life. And the

00:18:54--> 00:19:45

ethics values and morals are the boundaries of Allah azza wa jal, all knowledge begins with knowing the boundaries. Boundaries are all about respecting the rights of others, which is the essence of civilization, the rights of Allah, and the rights of creatures. That must be the framework of all learning. Remember that children listen with their eyes. They don't care what you say, until they see what you do. That is why inspirational teachers who love teaching and who are ready to pay to teach not only to teach free of cost are the key to success. Remember that they are molding society. They are creating a generation scripting the destiny of the nation and leaving their own and your

00:19:45--> 00:19:54

legacy. So pay them a premium way out of the market. That is because quality is worth the price.

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

The Gucci family slogan is quality is remembered longer.

00:20:00--> 00:20:52

After the prices for water, and that's very true. Support, applaud and reward, imagination, creativity, ingenuity, curiosity, experimentation, collaboration, risk taking, teamwork, respect for difference and dissent, forgiveness, responsibility, owning accountability, putting others first humility, compassion, kindness, courtesy, consideration, courage, physical and moral industry, charity, perseverance, resilience, equanimity, self discipline, focus and patience. In short, nurture all those things, which in our current schooling system, we destroy as quickly as possible to create obedient slaves and make our own lives easy.

00:20:53--> 00:21:44

We must remember that real education is about creating responsible moral, ethical and compassionate leaders, not obedient robots. Values cannot be legislated values must be inculcated. Remember that this means that teachers must demonstrate all these values in their lives and monitor them in their students. cast them during write, applaud and reward them and help them when they make mistakes. Mistakes must never be punished, because that is the fastest way to kill risk taking ability which is essential to succeed. I have spoken to you about four out of the seven things that are required. We will talk about the others. Next Juma inshallah, I request you to read the text that comes with

00:21:44--> 00:22:21

this hotbar and to reflect on it and to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make you among those who he will use to make this come true in this world.
