To learn other Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu wa salam O Allah Shana filmbay, mousseline Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi, wa aalihi, wa sahbihi wa sallam, the Sleeman kathira from abajo. My dear brothers and sisters Alhamdulillah in the light Allah we are on the,
on the lessons from the MBR limosa. We ask Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah who to accept
these lessons and accept the teaching of these lessons. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah Allah who to accept your attending these
classes, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala della della who to make this a means of fire and Baraka, for all of us, I remind myself and you always, that the purpose of teaching and learning is only one and that is to practice what we learn, because both for the teacher and the student, if we are going to teach or if we are going to learn things that we do not practice, then May Allah protect us from ourselves, this can become a means of
achievement and a means of test for us, because the knowledge will then bear witness that it was not used and it was, May Allah forgive us, perhaps even abused. So, we do not want to fall into that trap under any circumstances, this is what shaitan does.
shaitan even encourages you to get knowledge and then shaitan involves you in unnecessary arguments shaitaan is involved in
in unnecessary questions, and then it leads to trouble. Now, just a word about this term, unnecessary question because sometimes people say that, how can a question be unnecessary? How can you prevent or how can you forbid somebody from asking questions?
I would like to clarify that we are not forbidding people from asking questions. We are forbidding people from asking unnecessary question. Now, what is an unnecessary question? an unnecessary question islamically speaking is something which cannot be answered? There is no way of giving a definitive answer to that question. Now in the deen in the learning of Islam, what differentiates Islam from
branches of knowledge? Is that in Islam, there is no speculation. Right? There is no speculation anybody who's speculating in Islam, may Allah protect us from this is potentially opening the doors to all kinds of Phaeton to all kinds of confusion
to all kinds of,
of temptations of shaitan
to start questioning things, again, as there is no answer to them. So for example, you know, if somebody says, Well, I've read so little calf, Minnesota calf, the calf, and also said that they were kept
sleeping for 300 years. And they would while they were sleeping there, you know, they would be made to turn from one side to the other. Today in our knowledge we can say so that they don't get bed sores, but Allah subhanaw taala did not say that they were turned, and presumably the dog was there and the dog also slept for 300 years and the dog also must have been turned. I mean, this was not mentioned. But this is an assumption.
And then they were brought back to life. Also Allah subhanaw taala said the sun would shine on them from one side in the morning and the other side in the evening, and it would not. So I mean, one can now speculate on this thing and say, Well, how is it possible? How could it have happened? Maybe it is just allegorical. 300 is just a number it is not actually this, this didn't happen. And so on. The other story, also,
you know, in Surah, Al Baqarah, where this man was going on his donkey, and he went through this, this town which had been to the ruins of a town and he said, Well, how is this possible? How will Allah bring these back to life? How How is it possible that you know this can happen and the man was made to die and his donkey died? And then after 100 150 years, this man was brought back to life and the donkey was brought back to life and the man actually saw the donkey being reconstructed. Now. You know, there are so many stories like this in the
Take a look around for example, right look around, went to the east and he went to the west and he went to where the sun rises and where the sun sets are you and I know that the sun doesn't rise and set from any particular place on earth, the sun is a celestial body and the earth is actually going around the Sun and the sun is not not rising or setting actually the sun appears to rise and appears to set because of the motion of the earth, the sun does not go anywhere in the sun, the sun is not setting in some sea or you know, rising from behind some mountain. But these are specific words and and and stro and stories mentioned in the Quran. So what now if somebody said will explain this to
me, how do you explain
how do you explain
Let me take you take you further back, for example, when the Quran was actually revealed, all the ayat of of embryology for example, the development of the human fetus, from the time of Inception conception is is mentioned in the Quran in detail.
Now, for the Sahaba. All of this was in the same realm as the stories which I mentioned, do your stuff. There was no way of physically verifying any of that, because especially at the earliest stages, it is microscopic. So until the microscope was invented, there was no way
that anybody could have demonstrated that anybody could have shown that. Now we know our oxidizer or if Rosado wanted to, he could have asked Allah subhanaw taala show it to them and Allah subhanaw taala would have shown it to them. We believe this is the power of the duo of the NaVi la Salam but he didn't make this talk.
He did not make this work. He did not say Oh Allah you have said that you have created everything from water. Right? Allah subhanaw taala said this is Baba and this is when you look around yourself in Macau. What do you see? You don't see water?
You see black rocks.
You see desert?
Allah said he created everything from water.
So Allah Rasool Allah Sam did not ask Allah didn't make do and say Oh Allah, please show us all this.
Because my my people you know, they have find it difficult to believe. Please show them all of this
Eamonn bill Reb is a rookie of the faith, it is the fundamental it's a pillar of the faith.
It's a first of the pillars of the faith.
To believe what Allah told us,
and to have faith in that
without question not because we believe blindly but because we know Allah subhanho wa Taala
we don't question because there is nobody who can answer this question.
Allah subhanaw taala said, Oh, as you
said is Arash, his throne is on the water,
where's the sea? or whatever, whatever the water is, what what what is this? Who is going to answer this question? Now? It is questions like this. Allah subhanaw taala said so much there are a lush
karasawa people already visited the Yemen. So mastaba Allah,
Allah subhanaw taala created the heavens and the earth in six days and then he
rose above the earth. Now, again, what exactly is the meaning of Easter?
You know, the best guidance is the guidance of Mr. solemn and therefore the demonstration of this guidance is the life of the Sahaba is one.
The same I had
on Easter Allah lush,
who said that if Allah wanted to tell us he would have told us
so we believe what Allah told us Billa case without asking how? Now this is a fundamental issue of Islam, where we have to say, I believe, will archive without asking how
not everything, but things which cannot be answered by any living human being today.
The only one who could have answered these questions is also the source element, he would have answered them by asking Allah subhana wa Taala to show but his people his companions never asked him to do that he never made this. And therefore Alhamdulillah Allah subhanaw taala has kept these things in the right. If he wants like in the case of the Amira embryology if if Allah wants at some point in time Allah will show if he shows Alhamdulillah if he does not show Alhamdulillah we believe like the Sahaba believed
we have some very fine examples of this. From the life of the Sahaba Allah subhanaw taala in Zaragoza Allah subhanaw taala revealed or via ke ha ha
So a man came to Oregon to sit there for the lotto, and he said, we know hubba hubba is a molecule it's an it's a blue mule which is the the green part of a seed, the upper green part is called Blue mule and the one that goes down is called the radical which is the which is the root. So
hapa is this growing shoot the Green Park. So, the man came to our city hall and when he said that this is the ad, which is the Bureau of art he has a ba ba faggy have you know is throats Hubba you know, is this growing thing? What is up?
I will get us into trouble. Ah, no did not speculate. He did not say maybe this that.
who will shelter which sky will shelter
me and which earth will hide me? If I say about the Kitab of Allah, that which I don't know.
Right, is that I believe this is a type of Allah. If Allah wanted to explain this, Abba, Allah would have explained, Allah did not explain, or hamdulillah we believe whatever it is, we believe.
Similarly, the man went to Milan, you ask the same question. Say the number of the Lama said the same thing.
Another beautiful example,
after our marriage,
when the Surah Surah Salam returned,
and I will and our gel came running to his house.
And he said, Yeah, Mohamed Salah, tell me this thing which you are saying
sola sola Salam told him, this is what happened to me. I went from
when he actually returned, he, he mentioned the first person he said this to Buddha, he narrated the story to a woman,
mother law, who was his, who was his nurse.
You know, from when he was a little baby, she was on ownership. And my man was my mother. Ravana was actually she was an African woman. And she was the nurse of a salon. And she was the only person the only human being who saw rationalize herself. From the day he was born to the day he died.
who saw Sora Sallam from the day he was born till the day he died his entire life she saw and that was a moment of Ilana, all others came and went because they either died when he was I mean, they all died before he before he passed away, and those who came into his life and who were with him when he died and who lived after him. But people who did not see him as a baby or who didn't see him when he was born. My mother was the only one.
when he returned from and she used to live with him. So when when he returned
from Israel Mirage, the first person he mentioned this to was a moment of the Lana. And she said to me, Arizona, I believe, but please do not announce this to anybody. Don't tell anybody else.
He said, Why? Because she said, they will laugh at you, they will not believe you.
And they will use this against you.
She was a wise woman,
but also as a wrestler who had been given a job to do. I mean, it was not left to him to do it. Do it any way you wanted.
So he announced, so I'm running. And he said, Tell me Tell me.
Tell me what what what did you What happened to you? So
he said I was taken from machine to machine Alexa. And I traveled on this kind of this this Mount albayrak and debellis Alam came with me. And then in Majid Aqsa, this is what I did. I did Salah for all the MB it was salam, then from there, I was taken up to the seven heavens and so on and so on the whole story.
So we just said, Tell me, are you going to change the story?
Right? Will you change this to here? Will you say oh, no, I never said the services. Do you say all this? He said, Of course not. This is what happened to me. This is the truth and I
have nothing to change.
I thought this is the nail in the coffin, so to speak.
He said now I can prove to the world that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
is telling lies now it will lead
to Iran. He called all the people who see what Warhammer saucer was saying.
And they all are a big laugh. And is it all, you know, all so called rational people, right?
How is it possible? Is it completely impossible it takes us so many months have traveled in the desert to go from Makkah to Jerusalem. Right? And you are saying you did all of this, including 7am and whatnot, in the space of a night or less.
Now, while all this was going on this week, Tamasha.
Somebody went over grace, Ron, I'm talking about human rights. Somebody went over a series of delanco and said to him,
do you know what your friend is saying?
No, sir, what did you say?
They told me the story. They said, This is what he's saying. That he went from Makkah Jerusalem and then to the seven heavens and so on and so on.
give an answer, which is the
framework, which is the touchstone, which is the criterion of authenticating authentication of Hadith. He said, If he said, So, I believe if he said, So, I believe he didn't say I believe he said, if he said so I will, because you are conveying it to me. I don't know whether you are lying or you are speaking the truth. Maybe you never said any of this. Maybe you maybe you you, you know hooked it all up. You didn't solve this tweet, I'm just saying meaning what if he said meaning, the Mojave zone therefore, they authentic What do they authenticate, they authenticate whether Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam actually said what he said what he is reported to have said
that is why the whole body of knowledge called elbow is what Riyal was created because of authenticating of the narrator's.
Right? authentication of the narrator's.
So if somebody conveyed a Hadith, then the investigators who are the body's own
the teachers and the collectors and the and the,
the, the the scholars of Hades, they investigate that individual who is conveying the Hadees and saying, first of all his identity, who is this person?
Then they say, Well, what is known about him? Did he ever did he ever tell him tell any lies? Is this person somebody whose memory was faulty?
Did he write it down? Did you memorize it all kinds of details about the individual and only when they were satisfied with our individuals, then they would say okay, then if you said this, we believe it, because this is a person who is highly trustworthy and all the Sahaba are taken as far as they can as trustworthy in the transmission of this.
Now, point being, that our scissors for the llanos answer is also a
answer to buy. to what I said earlier, which is asking unnecessary question. Our workers didn't say, Well, you know, what is the physics of this thing? How is it possible? How could it have been done? He said, If prasada Sallam said that, I believe
somebody asked him later, they said, How could you believe it? He said, because we believe something which is even more edgy than this. Even more varied than this even more astonishing than this, which is that what is that? He said? Allah subhanho wa Taala himself.
He said, Have you seen Allah?
How do you believe there is Allah?
He said, Jen, have you seen Jana? We believe in Jana, we ask Allah for Jana.
The fire the Gnar Have you Billy Have you seen the fire? We believe in the fire we have we have not seen the fire but we will be we believe in the fire. He said have you seen the day of judgment?
Everybody's going to be gathered together this this this one song?
He said this Quran which is revealed?
How do we know that this is the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because Mohammed Hassan Hassan told us he said, we believe in so many other things, which are much bigger within course, then is our marriage because we trust Mohammed Salah Holly while he was Abu Salah.
We don't ask questions about them. So what is what is it about believing this? If Allah subhanaw taala is the Creator of the heavens and the earth and he has the power to take someone from mind A to point B and bring him back in a matter of seconds or minutes or, or or hours or whatever he wants to do because he can do anything he wants.
So the question here is, do you believe that Allah can do anything he wants and if you believe that
Then there is another question.
And if you don't believe that then there is a problem with you or remind itself which you need to correct.
I'm saying all this because we are on the subject of IE Sally, Sarah and Maria, Melissa. And we are on the story of a Sarah which is part of the same story.
was a test for the people of his time and it continues to be a test for all humanity, which is again the same issue. Here was Maria masala who was pure.
She was confined she was protected. She was in the,
she was in the Basilica.
No one touched her. No one came close to her. No one came near her.
she had a baby.
when they asked her, how did she have a baby? She didn't say anything. She pointed to the baby. And the baby spoke in the cradle.
All of this is a huge test. How's it possible? How is it possible for a woman to have a baby
when no man has tested?
So Allah subhanaw taala said is Ali Salam is like other Malaysia.
Right? Allah said how Why is it difficult for you to believe that because he sadly Salah is like the Malaysia
anomaly Salam was created not by from a woman alone, he was created.
When nobody touched him,
Allah subhanaw taala created him with his own hands.
To Allah said on what so difficult to believe that when I can create this, I can also create this.
And the idea is,
so the whole issue here is email delivery. And therefore the point I'm making is that when we say unnecessary questions, we mean question when nobody can answer.
All of these, and there are many more. Now we should Why do we believe this? Because we believe in almost 100 and that's why we need to look at our faith and say if Alhamdulillah I worship Allah subhanaw taala. And I believe that Allah subhanaw taala can do anything he wants. And therefore, this is what he can do. The biggest of this is, of course, our own resurrection on the Day of Judgment. Because you know, and I know we go into the cover, and then the body disintegrates and everything is you know, because part of the earth becomes dust. But yet on the day of gentlemen, Allah subhana wa Taala is going to resurrect, I'm going to create everyone,
bring them all back to life.
And Allah mentioned is Allah smarter. So what is more difficult for Allah subhanho wa Taala to bring back to life something you already created when He created you from nothing in the first place.
You ask Allah for strong faith, which is based on logic, which is based on intelligence and not from a blind faith, as I told you.
The point of the logic is different.
We believe in the why we believe in Allah subhana wa Taala. And we believe in his power and holder
we accept what Allah subhanaw taala told us.
We are on the story of
Elisa Lam, which is part of the story of Maria van Zakaria
of Maria Maria Salam and the story of zaccaria Islam. Now, Ali Salam was
also an OB. And
as I mentioned in the last part, he was blessed, and your Hayley Salam was Allah subhanaw taala sent Salam on him in the three transitions of our lives. Now rahsaan told us in a hadith that Allah subhanaw taala commanded you have in the Korea with five commandments for him to perform as well as to command Bani Israel.
Now, apparently he delayed in conveying this message. So Allah subhanaw taala didn't reveal to you Salah salah
and says that you can wear them or he must convey the meaning. Tell? Yeah, yeah, remind Ya Allah Salam
To convey these things and if he is not doing it then you do it. So he said he said I meant when he said the Allah subhanaw taala gave you five commandments. So either you convey them or you let me do it. So you hire a Salam said to him Yoruba Allah, he said, Oh spirit of ALLAH, spirit from Allah, I am afraid that if you convey them, Allah will punish me or the earth will swallow me. So he went forth, to convey the message. Then he got he gathered the Bani Israel in aleksa until the masjid was full, and then he sat in a high place on the member. And then he praised Allah subhanaw taala. And he said, Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded me to do five things, and to command you also to do those
five things. Number one, worship only Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Worship only Allah subhanaw taala and nobody else because a mushrik somebody who is doing share who is joining partners, Allah subhanho wa Taala is a slave lie who works for someone other than his master. He's like a slave who is working for someone other than his master. So he said to the one Israel first commandment is worship only Allah subhanaw taala. And nobody else he said, second one is I command you to pray. And when you stand to pray, don't turn away, because Allah is facing you. And if you turn your face away, Allah will turn his face away from you.
Maybe don't get discouraged and distracted in Salah looking here and there is a look and be focused on law smarter. Number three, he said Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded you to fast. And that is like somebody walking with a
sack of Musk, which everybody is able to smell, the smell of the fasting person's mouth is better with Allah than the smell of musk. The fourth one, he said Allah subhanho wa Taala commanded you to give charity. And this is like a man who was captured by the enemy, and his hands are tied to his neck, and they are taking him for execution. At this time he bargains with them. And eventually he gives them so much that they release him. And he said Sokka frees us from the hellfire. And he says the fifth one is I command you to make the seeker of Allah. This is like a man who's pursued by the enemy who enters a very strong and safe castle, which he enters and he shuts the door and he's safe.
And you are similarly protected from shaytan. When you make Zika.
this is what he commanded the man is right, then this was a silencer I have five commands for you and he's speaking to the Sahaba and he is speaking to us. He said number one, he said be with the JAMA be with the oma which is on the truth. Second one, he said
is to listen and obey whatever Allah subhanaw taala commands you to do. Third one, he said make israa make hegira and of course this hegira physical hegira command is now on soak after hatanaka but the what remains is to make hijra from the disobedience of Allah to the
obedience of Allah. And
he said to struggle and to work hard
in the part of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And then he said whoever leaves the Muslim community, by the span of our hand, has removed his neck from Islam has removed Islam from his neck until he unless he returns and then he said whoever raises the banners and slogans of algea helia, which is nationalism and tribalism, then he will be in the hellfire. So, all kinds of this tribalism, nationalism, caste ism, I am Bhutan, I am pashtoon this one is salty and this one is Bengali and this one is Gujarati and this one is mobile. And that one is say then, you know all of this, which we have brought into Islam, all of these things are Haram in Islam, they are prohibited in Islam. Similarly, in other cultures, I'm talking about the
indo Pak culture, but if you if you take tribal loyalties, for example in Nigeria, we have the
we have two Muslim tribes. Right. hausa and Fulani both are
Which are Muslim, but both of which fight each other and kill each other how? How terrible and how bad is that? That both of them hausa and Fulani are both Muslim, but they but they are they are at war with each other. There's so many killings of one killing the other. My sisters, Islam came to practice Islam came to give us a life which is full of beauty and higher and Baraka. It did not come for us to convert this life into a curse upon ourselves and this is what we have done that take all the nationalism that's there all over the word, how evil is that? Right? And that is why wrestlers are awesome said
God don't call people each other by these tribal names and cast names and race names and nationality names or family names. He said call them with their name, which is Al muslimeen. Me Nina Eva de la.
We are Muslims. We are momineen and we are the abode of Allah, our identity as Muslims, not our tribe and this and that.
So this is very, very important for us to
remember and to
and to practice now.
In the case of minimalism,
I lost around Adela mentioned and he said Why is Carla del mala eco de Maria Marina la stafa key water Hara key was tough Aki Allah Nisa al al Ameen. Yeah Maria mocha naughty Leah Robbie key was Judy work IE Mar Rocky. And remember when the angel said Oh, Maria Verily, Allah subhanho wa Taala has chosen you and purified you, internally, externally from polytheism from this belief of everything, and chosen you above the women of the enemy of the mankind and jinn of her lifetime, so she is the best of the women who were of her lifetime, or meridiem. submit yourself with obedience to your verb, and prostrate yourself may switch to such and such that and ear Chi, which is Rico,
along with the Iraqi own those who bow So, we know some of the at least some of the
kind of Salah some of the movements of Salah that we use are the pillars of Salah Madame la sala also was ordered to do and she used to do which is Rico and so
Allah subhanaw taala also told Madame la salam
instruct Maryam Allah subhanaw taala said and mentioned in the book, The Quran over Hamas or Salaam, the story of Maria, when she withdrew in seclusion from her family, to a place facing east, she placed a screen to screen herself from them. Then we sent to her Our roof, which is
the name of Jerusalem, and he appeared before her in the form of a man in all respects. And she said, verily, I seek refuge I seek protection from our man from the Most Beneficent Allah from you, if you fear Allah.
And the angel said, I'm only a messenger from your rub, to announce to you the gift of a righteous son. She said, How can I have a son, when no man has touched me, nor am I unchaste? He said, so it will be your rub said that is easy for me. That is Allah subhanaw taala and we wish to appoint him as a sign to mankind and a mercy from Us which is Allah, and it is a matter already decreed by Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So she conceived it, and she withdrew with him to a far place that is to the value of Bethlehem, about four to six miles from Jerusalem, and the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a date pump, she said, Would that I have died before this, and had been forgotten and out of sight. Then the baby Sally's Salaam, cried unto her from below her saying Do not grieve your rub has provided a water stream under you and shake the trunk of the dead palm towards you. It will let fall fresh, ripe dates funny. So eat and drink and be glad. And if you see any human being say, verily I have vowed a fast and to Allah, so I shall not speak to any human being this day. Then she brought him
the baby to her people carrying him they said oh, Maria.
Indeed you have brought a thing of firrea an unheard mighty thing meanings of something which is so bad is that all sister of harrowed she was not the brother of this is not the heroine, the brother of Musa is haram, but he was another pious person at the time of mulberry syrup. He said, Oh brother or sister of heroin. Your father was not a man who used to commit adultery, nor was your mother and unchaste woman, so they are blaming her, and they are accusing her of adultery. Then she pointed to him now she was told not to speak. So she didn't speak. She just pointed to the baby in the cradle. They said, How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle? And then he sadly Salam said,
verily, I am a slave of Allah. He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet. And he was made a blessed, and he has made me blessed wherever I may be, and has enjoined on me salah and Zakat, as long as I live and dutiful to my mother, and made me not arrogant and unrest, which means I am humble and blessed. And Salam be upon me the day I was born and the day I die, and the day I shall be raised alive. And this is the same Salam that was sent to Allah satis Isa, the son of Miriam alayhis salam aleikum wa salam, it is a statement of truth about which they doubt me, people who doubted the
immaculate conception and birth of Israel is Salam and who doubted his Prophet would it be fair it's not the majesty of Allah that He should be get a son. This refers to the
belief of the Christians against Allah subhanaw taala by saying that he Salah Salam is the son of Allah
Jalla Jalla who
later Camus Leisha who was a mercy Allah subhanho wa Taala la sharika lahu
in whom there is no partners it before it's not a law that he should be get her son, when he decrees a thing he only says B and it is He said his alarm said and Verily Allah is my rub and your rub. So, worship Him alone and that is the straight path
my brothers and sisters
we will talk
about this all in inshallah detail
in the next class, but for now,
for now, let me
submit you just think about these ads of
that I that I mentioned to you
where Allah subhanaw taala is at appsumo to medium
which is from number 16
to a number 36
so these 20 I think about these
and reflect on them and ask yourself and I asked myself, that how beautiful is this Deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave us this knowledge of people before us,
of people who we did not know, but who are such a source of inspiration for us. People who are such an enormous source of inspiration for us, that we
follow them we believe them.
You know we are
We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to help us to do that which pleases
my brothers sisters, the purpose of all
our teaching and learning as I mentioned 100 Allah is to follow these things and to to believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala
to follow these lessons, and inshallah
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to learn from this. So many lessons in this thing, the biggest and the most, the cheapest of the lessons is the word
of Allah subhanaw taala is the is the unity of Allah subhanaw taala that he has no partners you know, Sanjay is No, he's not like us, and that we worship Him and we worship Him as He should be worshipped, which is without assigning any partners to him any helpers to him because he is jelajah
Hello, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept us and to be pleased with us. Well sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi
wa salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
