Dear brothers and sisters, today is the concluding session of our series of lectures on the rights of the Quran Al Karim.
Allah subhanho wa Taala sent his column
and Allah subhanaw taala said about his column out wilhemina shaytani r rajim
Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim lo
hace mucho moto saw them in CATIA till
till columns iluminado Revo, harlyn si la homeopathic,
Allah subhanaw taala said that
if this Quran of the column of Allah subhanaw taala were to be sent down on a mountain, the mountain would be rent asunder by the weight and the magnitude and the majesty of this column. And Allah said that we give these examples to people so that they may understand so that they may reflect la la comida Quran, Allah subhanaw taala said also about his column, and he mentioned this as one of the qualities of the believers.
Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the effect of his column on the heart of the believer, as one of the quality of belief where Allah subhanaw taala said in namale Menon, Allah Xena Isa Sukira Allahu wa Jalla kulu What is that to Leah de la him Aya to Hosea to imana wa Taala Cologne and zero to landfill Allah subhanaw taala said that this column of the believers are those who when the seeker of Allah subhanho wa Taala comes before them, their hearts, Shiva with the fear and the majesty of and grace of Allah subhanaw taala. Right. And
the hearts of the believers are affected by the Kalam of Allah subhanho wa Taala. the hearts of the believers are not left unaffected by the by the vicar of Allah by the mention of Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanaw taala also said that what is the effect of this Colombo is utterly utterly him if he when this column is recited before them, zada to me man, it increase increases their Eman And what Allah behavior to walk alone, what is the result of this increase of women and the effect on the globe, the result is that they believe in the rub, and they have faith in the rub, and they have debacle on the rub. So this is the column of Allah subhanaw taala. And as we mentioned, the column
of Allah subhanaw taala is a great number and blessing on us.
annamma and blessing, the equal of which does not exist. And this column comes with certain rights, there's certain things certain rights that we need to fulfill with regard to the column of Allah. And as I explained, the issue with rights is that if there is a right of somebody or something on us, and we do not fulfill this right, then we become liable for punishment for not fulfilling the rights, the rights are a very serious matter. It's not left to our whims and fancies is not left to our likes and dislikes, whether we want to do something or not do something these are the rights of the Quran on us. And therefore it is incumbent upon us that we fulfill them. quick recap of the six
rights of them out of which four we have already covered. The first that we believe in the column of Allah. And we explained and we talked about what does believing in the column of Allah, what does it mean? Then we talked about the second right of the Quran is that we honor the kurama of Allah that we honor it, and we spoke about what does it mean to honor the Quran Al Karim? The third is that we read it and we mentioned and we talked about what does it mean to read the Quran Al Karim way in the question of how is it to be read, what is to be done, what is not to be done and so on. And the fourth one is that we understand the Quran and we mentioned and talked about what does it mean to
understand the Quran and why it is important to understand the Quran. Today inshallah we will complete this lecture by the last two rights of the Kalam is that we practice it and that we propagate it is these are the two rights of the column of Allah, Allah Allah.
The column of Allah subhanaw taala came to be practiced. Let me remind myself when you very clearly as I said with regard to the understanding of the Quran, there should really be no need for someone to say that the Quran should be understood. This is should be a given. Obviously if you are reading the Quran and you don't understand it, something is seriously wrong, but we
have reached a stage where we do not consider it to be serious belong. We don't consider it to be wrong at all. And we are quite content and happy to spend our whole lives reading the column of Allah without understanding it. It doesn't even, you know, prick us a little bit to say how is it that I'm reading this column and I don't understand what I am reading. We have D redefined the meaning of the word read.
In our in our case, only and only with the column of Allah read means to stare at it to recognize a letter by its shape and to make some noise with our time. This is called read the hora de La Villa, we will be answerable Allah subhanaw taala if we don't change our ways believe so we said that to say read it in the way that you do the Huck to the reading and understand it, it should not be necessary to tell anyone to understand it This should be understood. But since we have to say it, we have said it.
Similarly, to practice it again should be no need for us to tell anyone or to tell ourselves that I need to practice the Quran. Why else did the column of Allah come? Why else did it come? If not for practice? If it was not the intention of Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us do anything, then why did he send the Colombo what
to please understand, do you think the Kalam of Allah came to be practiced, it did not come merely to be read for sabab it did not come only for Baraka. When we are entering a house we have, we have invented all sorts of B that and all sorts of practices. When you are entering a house you hold the Quran and on top of your head like an umbrella, you know so that the sky doesn't fall on your head.
And you think this is Baraka? When you are when when somebody gets married, you hold the Quran and on top of the head of the bride and the groom.
For Baraka, what is the Quran is an umbrella
for you to hold on top of somebody's head, la hora de La Villa. We read the column of Allah when somebody dies. So what is seen which would have been read when he was alive and he should have been doing what Saracen told him to do is read only when he is dead and he got to inherit.
The Kalam of Allah subhanaw taala came to be practiced. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala in his column
made it for the on the believer
to make a dua in the beginning of every rocket of Salah.
And what is the name of this door? syrup Avada. Slovakia is da.
And also Eliza Laval Islam said there is no Salah without devotee herbal kita.
So therefore, Allah subhanaw taala gave us this great blessing and he said to start my Eva with making dua and this device for what for his,
for his IRA, after opening the beginning in the name of Allah subhanaw taala after glorifying Allah subhanho wa Taala after talking about the mercy and Rama of Allah subhanho wa Taala after acknowledging that we worship that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the is the Malik of the Day of Judgment. And then are saying that we worship only Allah and we ask help only from Allah, he cannot do what he can sustain
these understand when you stand here and you say this, you are making an oath and you are making a promise to Allah subhanaw taala if you go home and change that and you start asking for help from here and there and you start worshipping here and there and you start making door to this one and that one, then you are going against what you said before Allah subhanho wa Taala as I told you very clearly I've said this many times before I don't make the rules I don't break the rules.
What I'm saying I'm telling you with the knowledge of the Quran and the Sunnah you don't like it go talk to Allah when you meet him.
Right? Not Not Not my problem.
He aka Buddha Khanna Stein is not my these are not my words. These are the words of Allah subhanaw taala that is what you recite in Surah interorbital fathia in Salah. And then what is the door? data Serato booster came
in a Serato Mr. Kim and Allah subhanho wa Taala as I mentioned many times when we were doing the meaning of Serato vida effectively in terms of meaning the surah could have ended here Allah subhanaw taala could have ended this right here. He didn't know Serato monster came I mean,
but Allah subhanaw taala did not do that. He added one more IOI sirata la Vina la him
la him wall of Berlin Why?
My brother and sisters please reflect think Use your head use your brain.
Why? The problem is we don't even know what we're saying. So how will you ask why. But at least hopefully we will do they are intelligent enough and
educated enough at least to know the meaning of sort of the data if not everything else? Yes.
So serrata levy namd Allah,
Allah him bah bah lien What was the need for this?
is in a Serato Mr. Kane was sufficient to Allah lead us to the path of righteousness. lead us to the path of steadfastness sirata Mr. Kim, again one of the words which is May Allah forgive us, we miss translate with a straight path, there is no tempo, there's no word of straight Syrah tell Mr. Kane, the Spirit of St karma, the path of steadfastness, the path of the past of righteousness and truthfulness, not a question of direction straight or curved or whatever.
And then Allah subhanaw taala did not even stop with that. Even with this the duck with the surah could have finished it and
that was right. I mean, no, Allah subhanaw taala added what was the addition? sirata Lavina naantali
Allah subhanho wa Taala could have said it in a Serato musta came
Surat Al Quran Al Karim?
Yes, Allah would have said in a Serato Mr. him Allah guide us to the path of righteousness. Surat Al Quran Al Karim the way of the Quran.
Nothing wrong with the grammar of that.
And if Allah subhanaw taala said the way of the Quran is wrong.
Why did he not say the way of the Quran? Why did he not say Surah Al Quran Al Karim
instead of that is Ratan la de la him
The path of those who you blessed the path of those who received your enam
and then reinforcing of that.
Surat Allah The Nam tala him,
boo boo la mala Dolly,
not the path of those who
got your anger, not the path of those who attracted your anger not the path of those who disobeyed you and therefore they suffered from your anger and your punishment and not the path of those are
the people who are misguided not of the path of the misguided.
Allah subhanaw taala even here, normally when we translate, we say right you have to be Allah him Jews, balloon Christians.
Allah subhanaw taala would have said in this ayah Surah de la de Namur hamdallah him
and then he could have said not the path of Jews and Christians. What was the need to say Rachel Maddow? Vla, Pauline
because the meaning does not restrict to Jews and Christians. The meaning is not the path of anybody who attracts the anger of Allah. Whether he is Jew is Christian is Muslim is atheist is God knows what if anyone who's doing something which attracts the anger of Allah, we are asking Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from that and we are saying Oh Allah, I am not with them.
I am not with them. That's why in the email Josie, Allah said, is Toba.
He said Surah Al Fatiha is Toba when the slave says he and Abba gonna stay in his making Toba from shift. He's saying Oh Allah, I worship no one other than you. I make dua to no one other than you. I asked help from no one other than you. He's making Toba against you. And then when the bad person says he then a Serato master game is asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for the for the for guidance to the path which is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala the path of righteousness. And then when he says it will not obey him or not The path of those who angered you. The person is making Toba from every action that he or she does, consciously or unconsciously, which has the potential to anger Allah
This is the one
very lucky to be alive is not thinking about Jews and somebody has no ourselves. Is there anything in my life which attracts the anger of Allah, believe me, every single thing which Allah has made Haram, if you do, it attracts the anger of Allah, if Allah has made something Haram, Allah did not make it haram because it harms him. Allah made it haram because it harms you for your benefit and my benefit and if you continue to do that, Haram, then you are challenging the might and glory and majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala you are inviting the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala on your head.
Allah subhanaw taala made it haram I did not make it. You got a problem talk to Allah.
You will get an opportunity everyone has every one of us will get an opportunity right?
Allah made it Haram. If Allah made it haram it is haram whether you like it I like it you don't like it I don't like it makes no difference it is the rule. And please understand very, very clearly there is a tendency for fatwa shopping. Right? Please understand very clearly,
there are many advocates here on them and there are many clients of advocates here so you understand is this legal language which I'm going to talk just now.
a fatwa is a legal opinion.
It is not the law.
The ruling is something the fatwa is the legal opinion about the ruling.
So for example,
this year you made a million dollars
and you go to your accountant who's also
an expert in his area, and you ask the accountant how much tax Do I need to pay on this? And the man says tax taxes for the Libyans.
taxes for the workers. You Mashallah, you are a meal.
You are a set?
My fatwa my legal opinion is that on you, there is no tax.
And if the government is asking you for tax, the government is stupid.
And I give this to underwriting, no problem.
So you pay no tax. And then what happens?
Somebody comes knocking on the door, right?
And then he's no, no, no, no, no, you can't arrest me. You can't take me to jail. You can't sue me here is the fatwa the legal opinion of my auditor, who is BSD and ABC and XYZ or whatever, whatever. Right. And he said that I have no tax to pay.
So I'm sorry, I'm not I'm not at fault.
What does the taxman say?
He says the only two things you can avoid taxing and debt.
Right and I'm one of them.
Is your legal opinion.
Go and give it to your the guy who gave it to you.
Right Tell him to eat it.
has no veal has no value?
Why do we imagine that when there is a ruling on something? Not our bigs ruling the ruling of Allah Allah Allah, the ruling of Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah Allah, when there is a clear ruling on something, why do we imagine that some Mufti or some alum or some so called whatever, can give you a opinion which says this ruling is no longer valid, or is does not apply to you and you think that will work?
As I told you, take your chances,
no problem. Take your chances.
There was a
there are two very, very dear friends of mine in America.
Big carpet business,
there is to import carpets from all over the world and sell them in the US multimillionaires.
spin off of that business.
As a spin off of that business, they also acquired a lot of real estate. And at the time of the story, which I'm telling you,
I'm talking about people who decide whether to take chances or not.
At the time was a story which I'm telling you.
They had between the two of them, they had more than 300 houses
which they used to rent and so on and so forth.
Big Business, one of them used to live on a yacht on the sound in the in the in the in the harbor.
The other one had a you also had a country house the other one also a country of fans very fancy millionaire lifestyle in the US.
So in the year that I'm talking to you about, they decided that their business needed a boost. So they hired a consultant. I'm talking about practicing the Quran.
They hired a consultant. The consultant was Jewish guy, he came in he did a study and he said that we need to change our marketing ways and so on and so forth. And he said we'll begin it with a lunch of a new line of carpets with a exhibition and wine and cheese reception which is the nominal us
you actually get a tax rebate on that if on all alcohol that is bought for such marketing
functions you the US government actually gives you can you can write it off your you write it off against your taxes.
So they said fine.
One of the brothers who was the manager of the place and other one was the managing director. So the guy was the manager of the place. He called the supervisor of the workers was a Malaysian guy, young Malaysian guy.
In his 20s students studying doing business doing work part time. So he called him gave him the list and he said, these are the things you're gonna have this party. And this is the list of
things you need. And here is the whole wine list and all the liquors and everything else. And please make sure that everything comes and it's, you know, everything is in time and talk to the party organizer, and so on and so forth. So the guy took the whole list, she went away, and then he came back after five minutes.
The story is, is a real life story, which I know personally, because these guys told me the whole story.
So he came back after five minutes, and he brought a piece of paper and he gave it to the manager. The manager took one look at the piece of paper, he said, What the hell is it What's wrong with you?
He said, What is this? He said, Sir, it is my resignation.
He said what? He said, You are the best guy I got. And you are the supervisor, all these other guys. And it so happened for them the whole bunch of Malaysia.
So he said, Why, why resigning?
He said, Sir, because I'm Muslim.
He said, because I am Muslim. And I don't do whines.
He said, I do not do wines. I don't buy them. I don't sell them. I don't serve them. I don't work in an establishment which runs like this. I'm sorry, Somali.
This friend of mine, he said I got a shock of my life. It was easier. I would have been less shocked if that boy had taken out his slipper and slapped me in the face.
He said I told him you said earlier. He said I took his piece of paper to my brother who's the managing director. And I gave it to him. A brother went ballistic. He said What the hell is happening? Why is he resigning?
He said, Mike, this friend of mine tells me I just repeated exactly what the boy said. He said he says he's resigning because he is Muslim.
He said my brother's face went white.
He's a Punjabi is very fair. And you know, he's always Muslim, but my brother's face went white.
And my brother asked me, he said he is Muslim. Ah.
So who are we?
He said he is Muslim. So who are we?
And my friend says, I told my brother. He said that's exactly what I'm asking myself.
So what did I do?
Both the brothers came back to this room. They tore up the the, the the
resignation, they apologized to him. And they told him stay with us. Don't go anywhere, no party.
I'm talking about living by the Quran. No party is easy. What comes next was not easy. They went straight to the bank.
They went straight to the bank. And they said to the bank, this is the money we owe you so many million.
We are calling in the loans.
Take back your money, liquidate our property
and close the loan.
The bank manager says you are bloody mad. You're crazy. What are you talking about?
He said Do you know what what will happen to you? He says Do you know you will lose everything.
They said yes we know we will save your business when we know what we are doing.
The bank manager says I don't think you know what you're doing.
He says don't act with emotion. Be illogical. Be sensible. You educated guys.
Right? You educated guys. That miser says Just give me three years, three years and I'll each one of you will be a billionaire and everything will be you will be home and home and drive.
The two brothers says absolutely no problem. We agree. You guarantee us that we will live for three years.
The bank manager says manual matter of how do I guarantee you that you will live for three years.
He said that's the issue.
He says because I don't want to die
with an interest based loan on my hands and then be resurrected before Allah subhanho wa Taala having accepted his declaration of war.
The man says Look, I am not a good Muslim. I'm not a good Muslim. I don't even know the difference between right and wrong. I mean, I was just ordering alcohol for a party. So that's the kind of Muslim I am. But one thing I know very clearly. I am not going to war with a lot.
He said this much I know very clearly. Whatever else I know or I don't know. One thing I know clearly is I am not going to war with Allah.
So close the loan.
My brothers and sisters
you know where I heard this story.
I heard this story from the man's own mouth,
sitting in his house, having dinner.
And you know what their house was? That house was a caravan.
That millionaire went to live in a caravan.
And from driving a
S Class Mercedes, and a seven series BM, he was driving a beat up Chevy, secondhand.
But you know what I was surprised about.
Here I was sitting having dinner with a man and his family who had lost everything. Yes. Who lost everything. But you know, when I was having dinner, when I look at their faces, when I look at the talk, when I look at their expressions, I see the expressions of somebody, not of somebody who lost everything, but somebody who gained everything. This was a man who hit the jackpot.
If someone told me that this is a man who hit the jackpot, and he just won a billion dollars, I would believe that from looking at the person,
he was so happy, he was so happy. It was not funny. And I'm thinking to myself, he's happy because he lost 300 houses. He's happy because he's sold his yacht. He's happy because his cars are gone. He's happy because his house is gone. He's happy because he's living in a caravan park in a caravan For God's sake. I mean, you know, in America, you can't possibly fall below that.
I said, This man is happy.
So I said either Something is wrong in my thinking, or something is wrong. And he's thinking,
what is good, what is loss?
I'm talking about living by the Quran. I can give you any number of examples of the Sahaba and the debate and others. But I'm giving you an example of today in today's world of people living in the United States of America.
Why because this is real. The Sahaba are also real, but sometimes we may have a bit of a disconnect thinking so far back in history that says no, let's not go that far back. Let's see right now, what is happening, people who live by the Quran
and as I told you, Allah subhanaw taala didn't leave it to our imagination.
He told us asked for Serato Mr. came, and then he didn't leave it to our imagination to imagine what is Siracusa him. He says Raja Lavina. Anjali.
And what is the and who is the annum tally him? Who is the one on whom the enam of Allah came?
Anam Allahu Allah him Mina NaVi in our city in our Shahada, it was sala de
la serata. Xenon came on the Gambia
and who is the absolute Gambia the Imam will mursaleen
the best of the best.
Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam.
Allah subhanaw taala told us to ask for Surat Al musta came and who did Allah subhanho wa Taala guarantee and say that you are on the sirata Lusaka
Allah subhanaw taala Zarya see in one Coronel highkey, in Kala mineral marsali in Allah CRR themost team, Allah subhanaw taala called Muhammad Rasul Allah Salam by one of the beautiful names that he gave me Yes, he
and Allah subhanho wa Taala took an oath by his column.
While core Anil Hakeem,
Allah is not just saying something, Allah is saying something on oath. Allah subhanaw taala is de emphasizing the importance of what he is going to say. And what did he say in Naka? luminol mursaleen. Again, Lamb of the Lamb of Turkey, in NACA, Allah would have said in a comical mursaleen no inaka lemina l mursaleen. Really and truly you are among the
Rasul Allah subhanaw taala among the messengers of Allah Subhana Allah irati musta came and you are on the path of steadfastness in the path of righteousness.
So when you are Think, think because this is a big mistake that people make today. You stand here and say sirata Lavina Nam tala him
and you go outside and you say I don't believe in Hadith or the Quran is enough for me. But what do you think you read in the in the in the in sort of the Quran?
What is the Quran
so what did you read?
Tierra de la Vina Nam dalla him that is Coronavirus
in a gala sirata Mr. Kim in the karate moussaka in karate.
So you say you believe the Quran right?
So how come you delete Muhammad Rasul Allah Salah Salem from your life.
My brothers and sisters, please understand,
Allah subhanho wa Taala could have explained Allah was when Allah subhanaw taala was
revealing the Quran Allah, Allah subhanaw taala was not restricted by some editor, who told Allah that you have to can only write so many words.
Allah subhanaw taala could have explained Serato mooster game in detail, yes or no. But he did not. He did not.
He says Raja Nam dalla him.
My brother and sister, there are two ways of guiding people.
Somebody shows you away, somebody asks you for a direction to a place.
So you are standing on the crossroads. And you're going to explain to this person and say, and it's a complicated ways, we will tell him to go this way, and then take a left at this place and the right and so on. And suddenly you see a bus coming, which is going to that destination.
So what do you tell the guy just follow that bus.
Right? Color simple, very, very simple, just follow the bus. Now as long as you stick to the back of the bus, he can go wrong. Because the bus driver knows where he's going. He's been there a million times he knows the road backwards and so on so forth. So just stick to the bus just stay behind the bus. And you will reach there two ways of guiding people. One is to give detailed instructions. And the other one is to define a universal rule that applies everywhere.
So anytime we have any question that same universal rule applies, and what is what how did Allah subhanaw taala choose? What did he choose as between these two ways? What did Allah subhanaw taala choose as the way to guide
the application of the universal rule?
Allah subhanaw taala Xin
locka Ghana Lacan, fie rasulillah he was watton Hassan.
Allah does it for you. The best example indeed in the life of Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu wasallam is the best example for you to follow. For whom live in Ghana or de la Yamanaka for the one who hopes to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And the last day
Please understand, you know, read the Quran and understand the meaning Why is Allah subhana wa wising hope to meet Allah when everybody will meet Allah anyway?
No, is there Do you have a chance to general I I hope I will not meet Allah so I am free from the Day of Judgment. Is it true? No, everyone will meet Allah anyway. So what is the need to serve hope to meet Allah?
Who do you hope to meet?
friends or enemies?
Who do you hope to meet people who love or people whose face you hit?
hope to meet implies that you and I are among those who love Allah, who look forward to meeting Allah who want to meet Allah because we expect the best from Allah. Why do we want to meet friends because we expect the best from them. Why do we Why do we not want to meet people we dislike or they dislike us because we think some some negative thing will happen I better to stay away. But friends Yeah, I would like to meet my friend because every time I meet my friend is a nice experience and my friend is nice to me and so on and so forth.
the one who hopes because that one has spent his whole life in obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And now the time comes for getting the reward of this obedience. Naturally he hopes to meet Allah.
We are living now in a month of obedience. We are living now in a month which has been sent in order to instill Aquinas
to instill the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala to instill the fear of disobeying Allah subhanaw taala let us make the best use of that. And Allah subhanaw taala showed us the universal rule which is
follow Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran. I always say I give the examples the Quran gives the examples about that because ibadat are the most important thing they are the absolute critical thing. Everything else comes later.
Allah subhanaw taala ordered us to establish Salah Aki masala but it Allah tell us how to do that. No. Is there any direction in the Quran about the method of Salah
there is a reference to pseudo reference to Rocco and so on and so forth. Work O'Meara Kenya to the Masai but which comes
First which comes last, how many so on and so forth? No reference whatsoever. Why is the column of Allah deficient? Is it incomplete? is Allah Renata words?
Allah subhana wa Taala gave the hokum and He then told him who to teach us how to apply this.
And that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala said Aki masala and his nebby Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said sallu Kamara to Mooney usaully
he said, Pray as you see me pray. So which Salah is valid? The Salah of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu sallam.
If I say that I love Allah so much that I want to make 10 sudo the Navy Raka my Nia class, I'm not talking about doing it in JAMA I'm saying in tahajjud I want to make 10 sujood in every regard because Allah Allah so much, I will say that in in tahajjud I want to recite the Quran in such that I don't want to recite the Quran study I want to recite Quran in such that
I say that, you know, no, there's no reason nothing alone with Allah subhanaw taala. Right.
Is Messiah valid?
Salah is not valid. It is not permitted to recite for Anissa except the doors of the Quran which you reside with the meaning of the door. But to recite Quran in such that
Can you make more than two pseudo indelicate? No, no matter how much you love Allah. It's not a question of your intention. It's not a question of how much you love Allah. It's a question of following Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam without question. Without question.
Allah subhanaw taala made zakat. Fourth, Allah subhanaw taala joins Allah with xhaka the man who refuses Zakat is the man who refuse the Salah is a martyr
who went to war against people who refused to give zakat. People asked him this and how can you fight the Muslims he said Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said the one who separates the Salah from the Zakat has left Islam they are Martha then I will fight them even if they deny a piece of rope of the camel which is do I will kill them for that.
Who is saying this? The Xavi avasarala who was known to be the softest of them, the mildest of them.
So Zakat is such an important pillar of Islam. Yes. Did Allah tell us how much they got to pay? Does the Quran say how much they got to pay? The Quran the Quran in surah tavas gives us some headings of people who are who can be paid Zakat, but did Allah subhanaw taala say how much Zakat on what how much they got on cash, how much they gotten agricultural crops, how much they got on animals, how much they got on land, how much they got on goods in transit, American goods in stock, how much they got on gold and silver, how much they got on diamonds and jewelry is anything any of this given anywhere? No.
Who gave all these instructions? Muhammad Rasul Allah sallam, he received the way he
did he invent all this? What's your opinion?
He just thought it up one day, I feel like I think I think you should give so much or was he going by what he received. So why does this Why
do you decide that you decide the outcome of soccer I should allow our artists rather we should pay 2.5% on the Visigoths on gold. There's no forgotten that you said.
Ye motlow and that's why I say learn the deen don't confuse yourself unnecessarily. The two kinds of a why in the Quran which is recited and ye which came outside the Quran which is not in the Quran, but is also a
and you and I are following it every single day of our lives.
Just because you're doing something without understanding doesn't mean you're doing something. How do you pray with the methodology of provided prayer? Where did it come from? The amount of Zakat, the whole lack of Zakat, where did they come from? Allah subhanaw taala third pillar of Islam. Allah subhanaw taala made fasting
Yes, Allah subhanaw taala made fasting forgiveness
from when to when?
Allah subhanaw taala said from the time you can see a black differentiate between a black thread and a white thread. There's actually a story of a zombie went to Asana Mr. jasola. You know, I keep these two threads under my pillow. And I can't figure out how you should be able to see the white thread or the black thread or what
rasulillah salam smiled and he said does not apply to threads. It means the light of the
when the horizon starts becoming clear.
Why did Allah subhanaw taala have to tell us somebody told in the Quran Why can't he say clearly
About a pillar of Islam.
A person who deliberately leaves a fast of Ramadan without a shadow as cues and what are the two Shara excuses one is sickness The other one is travel. Other than that, if somebody leaves a fast of Ramadan he cannot make up that fast by keeping Kala he has to pay a penalty.
He has to pick a fara.
The minimum of the kuffaar is too fast continuously for two months 60 days so if you live the whole of Ramadan do the multiplication
somebody told me you know this whole life is a journey. So I'm in a journey so I don't first I said Mashallah very nice. Wait until the journey ends
because journey will end No.
So when the journey ends, then we'll see the fun of your interpretation of the Quran
masala saris saris in the Rosa Morocco.
journey will end one day then we see the fun
Allah subhanaw taala made hydrofarm
is it or not? Yes.
Minister de la sebelah on anyone who has the means to do it
with Allah tell us what is Hutch
so how can you put on a haram? Why do you go to Makkah first why'd you make the offer of the Kaaba, you're going to make Hodge off what it was 100 of his bite has off his house, but on the day of Hajj, where are you?
In other words, you are nowhere in the house of Allah. You are in a Medina in the middle of nowhere yes out of that
supposing somebody argues and he says Rosie Allah in the Quran very clearly said Hajj, have by to LA. Therefore, you want to go to Morocco, you want to go to arafat go. As far as I'm concerned, I'm following the Quran. So therefore I am going to be sitting here in the harem. And I will make the offer of the Kaaba and I will do my silence or my hedges complete.
Is that person has completed or not?
So why did Allah to Allah subhanaw taala established Hajj and his NaVi Zedd pozo unni mana seeker,
he said, take from me the method of doing that.
take from me, the monastic of Hutch
and among them rasika Rajaram said the one who was not in arafa on the day of Hajj has not done much everything else. Hajj is one of the most convenient of Avada because people came to Salah Salam and they said yes well I did this first and I did instead of doing something is I did this first restaurant said no problem. He said I did the other one first he said no problem. He said I went to I did not stop in Missouri if I said no problem. He said I stopped in Missouri revised on the first there was a big jamara last and there was all kinds of things. As far as I know. No problem no problem no problem Alhamdulillah everything emerged so easy. But one thing is absolutely clear is
that if you are not standing in our office on the day of hygiene hygiene is not done
that's why they have those big signs of where the boundary of our friends
and those of you who are too much in number four for Salah have the machines inside or outside to be
visual where which have big signs of course but you know if you're if you're on the other side, then you are not enough even though you're in the building.
Very clearly the methods Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala wants to establish what is the serrato mystery. Now brothers and sisters I remind myself when you
remember the universal rule
and the universal rule is to follow the Sunnah of Muhammad Rasul Allah, Allah Allah.
There are two major mistakes that people make with regard to this. One is holo. And the other one is lack of respect. The people who do holo they take the respect of rasulillah salam and raise it to a point where now they start committing shirk.
Yes, there is the position on Amazon So just think about this ambia came to do what?
What reads from either last is what is Allah subhanaw taala asking is Allah Salah he's saying Did you tell your people to worship you and your mother instead of me? Yes, go ahead. Yeah.
So what is that? Is that is that is that I'm sorry Allah. I
said only what I had been sent to say. And you know what I said? Because you are witness to what I said.
The ambia came to remove everything from between the slave and his creator.
To remove everything from between the slave and is created to connect the app to the to the rub, that was the job of the Navy. The Navy did not come to insert himself between the app dandara asked me and I will ask Allah did Jesus never know nobody ever said anything like this? He said, ask Allah. What did Allah say? Did Allah say asked the NaVi and I will give you Allah said Oh, the oni.
He said asked me
yesterday blah comb, I will give you I will accept your da was ways as I like it by the unevenness. Karim Wu Ji boo da vida Daya. Diane, Allah asked me,
but for some of us, that is not enough.
So we invent philosophies.
we invent philosophies and we invent all sorts of mental we do mental gymnastics.
And then instead of asking Allah subhanaw taala we sit with a doll and visit with the harmonium and visiting birthdays holy Maryam Muhammad,
the how Lola hotel Villa and we say this is Amanda. This is Ava.
Please state yourself. Where are you going?
So one side is guru, where we take this and we make as well as Allah Salam as now the villa the Christians made is Elijah Lam son of Allah and the Muslims Megalosaurus, Allah, Allah part of Allah.
There was some guy who is finding his own place in the jahannam, who invented the Hadith and I'm in neural evolution. You may know de modo Hadith, he invented the Hadees enemies Allah Salam said the one who invents about me and says something which I have not said we'll find his own place in Ghana. And that guy is now searching for his present Jana Mashallah.
So, what is a What is the meaning of the service? He claims, Allah Salam said and Hassan did not say that he claimed the Rasul of Allah, I am from the knower of Allah, and everything else is from my nor
in Allah when Allah
so now, there is no difference between the creator and the creature rossano salam is Allah
The however Lakota level in Allah when Allah Raja
what is the difference between this and Hinduism?
Go shave your beard and go and make such that two Ganapati or something that's better, that's more honest.
Instead of instead of doing this this dishonest
please understand very clearly, as I told you, I don't make the rules. I don't break the rules shake a shake.
Shake a shake. Just because you give it a nice shape just because you put a green cloth instead of a sovereign clock does not change anything. It is.
So one side is Hulu. The other side are the other misguided brothers and sisters of our lucila Quran is enough for us. jehlen
If you are saying it without knowledge, they are saying it with knowledge they are more than
anyone who does not respect Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, anyone who does not love Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam more than he loves everything on the face of this earth, including himself is a morta I don't make the rules. I don't break the rules. Allah subhanaw taala said that in Surah totowa go read the ayah
we respect them, but we do not worship Him. We respect nummies Allah salam, but we don't make dua to him we make dua to Allah. Why? Because he taught us to do that. Respect of somebody is to obey them. Respect somebody is not to do the opposite of what they taught us
to major mistakes which you make. final point.
The last write of the Quran is that it should be propagated. My brothers and sisters Allah subhanho wa Taala sent the Bahamas rassada salaam as the last and final Nabhi and rhassoul. There is no nubby after him and there is no soul after him. And in addition, Buhari said
la NaVi Abadi wala Mata Bartok
in one wording, Lana B. Abadi and another wording Lana B. Abadi wala Amata bodipy said there is no NaVi after me, and there is no Omid after you. Why is he saying why didn't he say larochelle Abadi because every Rasul is an OB, but not every NaVi is around.
So when you delete the common denominator the lowest common denominator if you delete the upper one automatically gets deleted. So if there is no NaVi, then obviously there cannot be any rustle either.
So anyone who claims Novato results after as soon as SLM What do we call them? We call them liars.
We call them butadiene. They have left Islam, they are liars, they are kassabian. They are cassata. They have light.
Whether it is Musa Allah,
Al Qaeda who did that in the life of Rasulullah sallallahu himself,
or whether it is anyone else who do it does it after, like we'll have Emma qadiani, for example, all the same, but Martha Dean Cofer, they have left Islam, and they are in the Hellfire forever and ever.
So now the job of conveying the message if the messenger ship ended, whose job is it to convey the message because the need for hidayah did not end? The messenger ended the messenger ship ended, but the need for Qaeda the need for introducing Allah subhanaw taala to the to all of humankind did that does that need and No.
And that is where we were given this great honor
of the belief of Islam.
We were given the great honor of taking this Deen to the rest of the world.
And that's why Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran, while taco min como Murthy Omar, yet the owner Allah Ll Hi, Marina bill Murphy and Daniel moon car. Well Ola aka Homer moflo Allah subhanaw taala said let them arise out of you a group of people inviting to all which is good, which is Islam and enjoying all morose and forbidding old moon car and they are the ones who are successful. The job of conveying this Deen
was given to the sama Allah subhanaw taala said Quantum hydromet no forget leanness. You are the alumina, you are the best of people and you have been extracted for the benefit of people. And what is this benefit what I was supposed to do?
Mr. Bill maruf one a year in one car and the result of that is to will Nabila Tamura will narrow view on how nadelman curry was una bella.
great honor that was given to us. And that is why my brothers and sisters
the Iranian General roustan
asked for a messenger to be sent.
and Saudi Arabia bureaucrats Roger llanos and Robin armour I don't know how many of you are aware Robin armour was an African zombie he was black
they were the cream of the horseshoe are available to us to send he divided is no black man.
No racism in Islam.
No racism in Islam. So have you ever saw Salah Salem is a man of honor rbma nama was sent. What did you go and tell rooster rooster I asked him he said what do you want from us?
Let me have an AMA said we don't want anything from you. We did not come to take we came to give.
We came to give.
So he said what can you give us? He's saying we are a civilization which is 5000 years old.
You are desert Arabs from the desert. You live in tents and you ride camels. What can you give us what we have in our

My brothers and sisters I remind myself when you the Muslims came to give
you know why the world hates us today. Because we have started taking we forgot why we came. The world loves those who gives. The world loves those who give and the world hates those who take if you don't believe me when you go on today, give you a
Some chocolates are as the same chocolate back. You know exactly what I'm talking about.
People like those who give, they don't like those who take. But we forgot. We not only forgot how to give, but we forgot something more important than that which is how to take from the treasures of Allah.
We forgot Allah, we forgot how to take from the treasures of Allah. And therefore, we have nothing to give.
He was sent to take from the treasures of Allah and give to the rest of humankind, give to the rest of the world. But we forgot how to take we lost our connection with Allah will have no Allah Allah
and therefore we have nothing to give. So what did we do? We started chasing the world, like everybody else. And naturally people don't like those who take you go to somebody as I want is from you. He fight you.
He will fight you. The treasure is raised, even dhaba organizations, even people organizations doing the work of Tao. They do fundraising. They ask people for money, and they pay their own salaries from that far from those funds. How is this guys? Did sambia do that? Did a number he did any number Nabil come to the people and say I'm teaching you Koran and I'm teaching you the deen all day in and day out. So pay me a salary didn't do that.
Not only did any Nabhi not do that. But Allah subhanaw taala made this the distinguishing feature of all the MBA
where he said they do not ask you for a job. They don't ask you for what the reward is with Allah.
I say to those who run organizations, if you don't know how to take from Allah, what are you inviting people towards?
If you consider yourself to be at our organization, if you consider yourself to be a great chef, who is inviting people towards Allah, first learn how to take from Allah.
If you don't even know that after your after your your career, and after your your dress, you have a Donate button, donate because I need my salary, the holla what a level.
You pass around the hat for money for collections. My brothers and sisters
to take money from people to teach them the column of Allah to take money from people to give Dawa of Islam is haram.
Learn to take from Allah. Then you don't have to ask anybody. And my point is if you don't even have that much faith that Allah will feed you.
In what right do you have to stand here and invite somebody else towards Allah?
Make Toba, make Toba?
I will end with a thing which happened in Hyderabad 2002.
Just after the Gujarat riots.
The Gujarat pogrom I should say the Gujarat genocide not riots. Riots is the misnomer that is given. Just after the Gujarat genocide. There was a function organized in psychiatrist and some of my
dear brothers are sitting here who all of us are witness to that particular incident.
There was a function organised in psychiatrist
to collect some funds to send to those people. And one of the people who was invited I also spoke at that function. But one of the people who was invited to speak at this function was Professor Kansa Ella of Spanish University, the Dalit professor who is a prolific writer and a scholar in his own right. Professor Candela was invited at this function.
Many of you I see your faces you were there at the function. Do you remember what he said that
ganja Ella said.
He said you have a book.
He said you have a book instead of dying in your molars and your houses. If you had taken that book and decided to die in our villages, the history of this country would be different and you would not have died. But he said you chose to hide the book and you chose to die in your own mohalla he said it is your choice.
La quwata illa Allah
Allah subhanho wa Taala has many ways of teaching us just because the thing the word comes from someone who does not have a turban on his head, or does not have a beard on his face does not mean he is He that that the word should not be listened to.
What Gonzalez said that day, well I will take to my grave.
I will get to my grave.
that's worse than somebody slapping us in the face.
May Allah give him a diary Allah make him a Muslim and May Allah subhanaw taala give him Islam before he dies.
demands that you had a book
and you had a job, and your job was to bring this book to us.
And if you had chosen
to say to yourself, that if I have to die, I will die in the villages of the Hindus with this book in my hand. He said not only would you have not died, but the history of this nation were different. He said, But you chose to hide that book and to die in your own malice and to die in your own neighborhoods and your own homes. He said the choice was yours.
My brothers sisters, I remind myself and you make the right choices while we have the time to make those choices make Toba because this is the month of October, stop doing haram which you know is haram. Let us make Toba let us fulfill the heart of the Quran. Otherwise the same Quran which will insha Allah and ask Allah subhanaw taala to make this or an hour Shafi on the day of judgment to make Shabbat for us on the Day of Judgment every surah will make a judgement but remember if we do not fulfill the right of the Quran, the same for and will complain to Allah subhanaw taala against us. We do not want this my brothers and sisters Please understand, we do not want this. We do not
want Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam to complain against us. We do not want Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam to turn his face away from us. We want the Shabbat of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam we want to drink the water of Howser couser from his blessed hand. We don't want to lose that we don't want to leave the day we don't want the Kalam of Allah to become our enemy. We don't want our pseudo Salah Salem to complain that we throw the Kalam of Allah behind is behind our backs. I've given you the references all these if and and and the sooner I bear witness to myself when you bear witness to me that whatever I have said here I am saying it with the authority of the book and
the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salam. I'm not saying anything, which is my fatwa. And as I said very clearly many times before, whether you like it or don't like it is not part of my list of considerations. I'm sorry about that.
If you don't like it, it's the word of Allah. Go talk to him. Don't ask me. But it's my job to fulfill my role which I am doing Alhamdulillah Allah Allah mean to the best of my ability. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless you ask Allah subhanaw taala to bless your coming here. I ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept your fasting. ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept your standing in taraweeh ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept your recitation of the Quran. Whether you recite it, listen to it, ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept your socket and fitrah ask Allah subhanaw taala to fill your lives with his glory and his mercy. ask Allah Subhana Allah take away all your difficulties. ask
Allah subhana wa Taala to fill the hobo of all of our elders who have passed away with his note, ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive all their sins, because none of their sins is bigger than his mercy. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to fill the hobo with his with his note and to bless them and to bless them and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to gathers all together with our families, those of us those who have gone before us and those will come after under the under the shade of his Ash on the day when there will be no shade except to shade was Allah Allah will carry while he was away as you may be Rama to get
