Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Shara Philomela, even more studied, Muhammad Rasool Allah is Allah Allah highly he was early, he was heavy with a limp. That's Lehmann cathedra and cathedra amado, my dear brothers and sisters, we are in our lesson on the Aqeedah of the Muslims, the fundamental creed
what Muslims believe, and what a person needs to believe in order to enter Islam, and to remain in Islam. This is called the Aqeedah. The Arabic word is actually that the meaning of it is the fundamental creed.
What does it mean? It means that if I want if I'm not a Muslim, I want to become a Muslim, I must believe these things as I have indicated, and I have as I have explained, in these whole series of lectures, to listen to the whole series.
I must continue to hold this belief as long as I live.
And then I need to die on this belief.
Then inshallah I will be called a Muslim, and I will be called upon and I will be asked to appear before Allah subhanaw taala
among the group, which will be the group of Muslims.
If I do not believe these things, then I cannot enter Islam, if I enter Islam,
and I do not believe in
and I stopped believing in some of these things, or I change the belief
or change the way I believe in some of these things, then I have, I would have effectively left Islam.
Now leaving Islam does not mean that somebody will come and kill me, it doesn't mean that I will grow to horns or a tail, it doesn't mean that my my shave of the face or my nose or my years of my eyes will change or something will happen. Nobody will know.
Nobody will not.
Nobody will know and nobody needs to do anything. So please, those of you who believe that somehow, if somebody enters Islam, and they leave Islam, in the moment, they leave Islam, that the Muslims are going to be coming coming for them with drawn swords. This is all nonsense. All of this Islamic Islamophobic garbage that has been peddled to give Islam a bad name. Most welcome, enter Islam, most welcome leave Islam, nobody's going to chop your head, nobody will do anything to you. Islam is between you and your Creator. It is between you and Allah.
There is no third party involved. That is the whole fundamental basis of Islam. La ilaha illa Allah, there is no one worthy of worship except Allah.
So where is the third party in what a person entering Islam is saying? There is no one worthy of worship except Allah. Of course and leaving Islam is saying that somebody else is more worthy of worship than Allah or the buzzer is saying that he's joining someone as a partner with Allah or a person is saying, I will not worship Allah, it is still between him and Allah.
There is no third party involved.
If you enter Islam, does somebody come and give you a check for a million dollars? No.
If you say, Well, if I enter Islam, what is the material benefit for me?
There answer is there is zero material material benefit. There's no material benefit for you. If you are entering Islam because of material benefit, then your entry into Islam is invalid. Please understand this. If somebody bribes you and says, become a Muslim, I will give you $10,000 become a Muslim, I will give you $100,000 And you become a Muslim, to get the $100,000 You are not a Muslim.
You are not a Muslim. You have merely said with your tongue. Lila Hale, Allah.
This, there are any number of people in the world. There are people who are teaching Islam. They themselves are not Muslims, but they are highly knowledgeable about Islam. They are teaching Islamic studies in different universities.
They are seeing Laila 10 times a day because they are teaching the digital stuff. So if if a non Muslim is teaching Islam, and this non Muslim has to tell his or her students, what do the Muslims believe in? What are they going to say?
They will say they believe that there is no one worthy of worship except
So does that make the most sense?
Just like for example, if somebody asked me, What do Christians believe so I'll say gender belief of course different, different
Under denominations of Christianity have different beliefs. But the general Christian belief I see is that Christians believe that Jesus is a Salam is either son of gods or he is God incarnate that God came to the earth in the form of a human being. And that human being was, was Isa was Jesus, and therefore Jesus is God.
So I just said, Jesus, is God, right?
Is that my belief? No.
So why did I say that I'm teaching you.
I'm explaining to you what certain
sects or certain denominations of Christians believe.
Just seeing something
does not make you
a member of that religion. Just seeing something does not enter you into that religion.
As I explained in the first lesson, to become Muslim, to actually become a Muslim,
saying, come second, before the saying, comes, the belief in the heart
does the will call to confirm with your heart in your heart, who knows what's in your heart?
Who knows what is in my heart? Only Allah.
So if I wanted to become Muslim, First, I must confirm
with my heart, that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah, this must be my absolute, total commitment, total conviction. There is no one worthy of worship except Allah.
And then this I say, with my tongue, as the thing with the tongue is incidental because in Islam, there is no specific ritual. I don't have to go and stand under a tree in the full on a full moon night or something and say no, I don't have to go and say it in front of an imam in the masjid on a on a Friday. I don't have to. There is no ritual specific ritual involved.
I could say this just by myself. I could say it in conversation. I could say it to myself, I could say it Allah, Allah, I believe in my heart that is no one worthy of worship except you.
Or I could go and do as His people lot most a lot of people look, I would go and I will say this to a friend of mine, a Muslim friend of mine, I could say this to Him to an imam or to in a masjid in front of a congregation anyway.
Does that speaking it is a the outward manifestation when people hear this is incidental, this is the ledger believe if you can do it, do it. But if somebody does not do it does not mean they're not Muslim. They become Muslim the moment they believe it in their art.
And the third part of of Eman of entering Islam is to live by this
ama bill or can or can is the
and the wit and the faculties of the body that they must implement La ilaha illallah they must implement there is no one worthy of worship except Allah. What does that mean? It means that they must obey Allah subhanaw taala no one worthy of worship means there is no one worthy obedience except Allah subhanaw taala and therefore I'm not smarter than me Salah established Salah, the first.
Amen, the first action
which demonstrates our faith our belief in Islam is a Salah. It is not as
it is our worship.
Right? So this is from the heart. And therefore similarly, if somebody leaves Islam, and they stop believing
what will happen?
Nothing will happen. There were people in the time of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam called the Manasa t they will call the hypocrites but they're called hypocrites by Allah subhanaw taala they call the hypocrites today when we when we
when we talk about them
and who are these people these are people who did not believe in their heart Lila Hilah. But the outward actions they used to play
wave in saloon was the was the chief of them. He used to bring the first stuff behind us five times a day.
It was always stood up to speak weapons are used to stand up and say people silent listen to the Prophet of Allah.
And all this he was doing was drama.
He did not believe in Allah Allah Subhana Allah revealed or and to say this man does not believe unless one or the other.
I've waited so long as Asana from praying Salado janazah which is making dua for forgiveness for these people.
But as far as these as far as society was concerned, these resources are seldom implement a punishment or the MDD cut off their heads Diddy with WD put them in jail the DEA throw them out of Medina nothing nothing, he did not do anything. He knew who they were it for, for him, it was not even it was not hidden.
So please understand is the reason why
we are talking about the Aqeedah the reason why we are talking about the Creed is first of all, because it is so critically important. This is how you enter Islam. This is how we remain in Islam. And this is how if we change this belief, then we will leave Islam.
As far as
the outer world is concerned,
the world does not know when I entered Islam and the world will not know when a person leaves Islam.
That is between that person and Allah and that is the reason why it is so important to understand the ACA and to ensure that you always remain on the occasion. Please understand that just because you attend an ACA class, and just because you know the occasional Hamdulillah this is good for you. But this does not mean that you will always be on the same Akela things come I know I know people bash on our God believing or hating Muslims who was strong on TV, and then they got led astray by this person or that person. And they started believing in all kinds of things, which amounts to shirk, which amounts to joining partners with Allah subhanho data, in some cases, the lost faith in
and teachings of Surah Surah Solomon rejected all the Ahadi Surah Surah Salam,
right. There are many ways in which people in which shatta and misguides and a person can end up outside Islam the reason the reason why we should understand the upheaval
is so that we don't fall into that trap.
So we talked about now we are looking at the shirk fee as MA will suffer the lie that Allah share or joining partners in the names and the attributes of Allah subhanahu wa taala and we talked about
giving now the villa May Allah protect us from this, giving Allah subhanho wa Taala the attributes of human beings so imagining that Allah subhanaw taala is this or that in our human characters, saying that God created
the the created the world, or created I don't know what they what they believe whether they created the whole universe or whatever, but they created in six days on the and on the seventh day. God was tired, so he rested. And all the biller this is this is complete misguidance because if God is like me, then why would I worship this?
Right? Because when you're saying he got tired, then it's only a matter of degree, I also get tired. I don't get tired, I get tired much, much more easily. And God is getting tired a little bit longer. So he's like a Superman.
See, I have X strength and God has 100x strength or or or 10,000,000x strength was so so what's our big deal? Like he's like a human being.
We're saying Islam says laser chemistry he shall. Allah is unlike anything in creation. There's no similarity
in any way.
Once we know these, these things, which are clearly wrong, so that we don't fall into those traps, so that we don't fall into those traps. Let's look at the other one. Now which is we said God
must not be given the attributes of human beings, the opposite of it is human beings must not be given the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala.
Shia is x sects, except disease of humans.
They have given the Imams divine attributes of absolute infallibility, their Imams, they believe that the Imam can never make a mistake. They actually give the Imam a level ahead of the Nabhi they say the Imam is superior to the Navi.
They say they say the Imams have or not have knowledge of the past and the future and of the hype of the unperceivable
they believe that the
I have the ability to change destiny and to control over the atoms of creation.
Now, this is the Akita of the if not actually is the water called the twelvers, which is the largest group of Shia in India and Ilan, and most places, they believe in 12, imams
11, of whom are have
the 12th. One is also alive and in living in a cave in Iraq and will emerge at an appropriate time. And every year they go and they stand before the cave, and they asked him to come out. And they've been doing that for the last 1400 years, or 30 years.
This is OpenShift. This is an Aqeedah. This is a creed, which if you believe this, then it takes you out of Islam. In Islam, no humans, or any creature can resemble Allah subhanaw taala, or have these qualities, there is no one who has knowledge of the wave of the unperceivable there is no one who is infallible, who cannot make a mistake, there is no one who has knowledge of the past or the future.
All of these are qualities that belong to us.
Now, and then we come now to the next which are the Imaan in the melodica the angels. So what are in America, and what is our belief in the Malayaka in the angels? We believe in the Malayaka. The general belief, sense of belief is that we believe that Allah subhanaw taala has created another life form, like Allah subhanaw taala created human beings a lot around it that I created Jin, a lot about Allah created all kinds of animals and insects and fish and
you know, so many
life forms, somebody knows or we don't know, law created the Djinn which we are which which which we cannot see the jinn can see us what we cannot see them. Similarly, Allah subhanaw taala created the melodica, Allah created angels,
which is a different life form from human beings and from the gym. And Allah subhanaw taala
describes them as being revered slaves, who give His Word, His order soul presidents, and who do whatever He commands. So in some ways,
it would be like several exam just for us to understand we don't compare these things. But just for us to understand an engine would be like a robot. So this robot has a certain is running according to a certain program, and the robot will do whatever it has been programmed to do. There is no for example, if the robot which is a cutting machine, then this robot will cut anything which comes
in front of its sensor. It does not check to see whether what it's cutting is a piece of wood or whether it is the hand of the carpenter, it doesn't matter. If it comes in front of the sensor, it will chop. So similarly, the Malayaka The angels are those who obey Allah subhanaw taala. They do not have free will. They don't say when Allah subhanaw taala orders them to do something, they don't think about it. They don't say well, you know, this order
should I obey you and not wait is, to me this order seems to be this way or that way not what is ordered to them, they do it.
There are many kinds of angels that Allah's rental has told us about and this does not restrict the actual number or the actual or the kinds of angels that are, we only know what Allah Subhana Allah has told us so for example, ultramarathoner said that there are some angels which are responsible for getting the Throne of Allah subhanaw taala. Again, let us understand this very, very clearly Allah is not dependent on the angels to carry his throne. Allah does not need his throne for him to be established. Allah subhanaw taala is established irrespective of all this, but Allah chose to be established on the ash on his throne. Allah chose for this throne to be carried by four angels on
the Day of Judgment Allah will create for more, as well as the number shown these angels descend the Hamelin Earth, the angels that carry the throne there as they are so massive that if a bird takes off from the shoulder of the angel, after flying 500 years, it still would not have reached the year lobe of the angel. So these distances
More than 500 years of fast flying by a bird.
So this is just to give us an idea of the size and obviously strength of the angels, some some angels Allah created to God, Jana and Johanna. Right the angel in charge of Jana is called Ridwan. The angel in charge of Jahannam is called Malik.
Allah subhanaw taala.
created angels to write down our deeds and these are called Caramon. Khatibi. Allah subhanaw taala created angels who will question us in the grave, and these are two angels called Mancha and Nikita
Allah della created the greatest of the angels, his soul, his messenger and that is who Gibreel Alaihe Salam, not Mohamed Salah Mohammed says Allah is the greatest of all his creation. Mohammed Salah Salem is greater even than Gibreel alayhi salam and Mohammed Salah Salem is the Rasul of Allah, and Muhammad Sallallahu sallam was human, and was Rosella said hold on a bizarro mythical you ha la. He said, say I'm a human being like you and I received revelation from Allah subhanho. What sets him apart is the fact that he received revelation from Allah subhanho
but also as a Salam was a human. He lived he walked, he talked, he ate food he had, he was married, he had children.
He got sick, he got well
and he died and he was buried.
God Salam is also aerosols is also a messenger of Allah. And he is the, the greatest of angels. He is the head of the head of the chief of angels. And he's the one who brought the first revelation that Rasul Allah is also known received was brought to him by Gibreel Ali salaam,
and WA salaam brought revelation also to all of the Gambia. This was this is his main job and he has many other jobs which Allah subhanho Sena knows a lot about that I created me guide Ali Salaam and among his duties is that He
enables or brings rain to different parts of the earth as a result of the order of Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah Subhan Allah directly is Rafi.
Elisa Lam the angel who has only one single duty and that duty is to blow the trumpet to blow the soul, which will completely and totally destroy all of creations, and then he will blow the suit again and
the Day of Judgment will be established and human beings and Jinwu has died will come back to life and they will be brought together on the day of judgment in the field of harsher to be judged. Last round denigrated Malecon mouth the Angel of Death, whose job is that? It is to extract the souls of all those who are alive. Allah subhanaw taala created he knows what he created, but to believe in these angels to believe in the specific angels that I mentioned because these Allah subhanaw taala as mentioned in the Quran, and these also relies on Muslim has told us about to believe in these specific angels and to believe generally that there are angels who are creatures of Allah subhanaw
taala is part of the Akita of Islam.
And lots of our data set, for example, is a little fatter. How will you manage shaytani R rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Alhamdulillah if our theory somehow it went all the Jibril Mala II cause us to learn only a genie ha UI engineer Hatem Messina was with us our robot ESC to fill up my
in Allah Allah militia in call the All Praise and thanks We almost ran out Allah the only originator or are only Creator of the heavens and the earth, who made the angels, messengers with wings two or three or four. He increases in creation what He wills Verily, Allah subhanaw taala is able to do all things.
Now, just to give you some idea of the size, for example, so as Adam said that he saw really Salaam in his real farm and he has 600 wings, and each spread across the horizon and cover it. When this was the result of XRGB is around for the first time he saw him sitting on a throne in the middle of the horizon and his wings spread and covered the entire Alright,
gentlemen, Abdullah Delano reported
that also relies on us Allah mentioned the angels guiding the earth. And he said that the distance between his ear lobe and shoulder is what a bird would have to fly for 700 years I said found its own action was a number of 700 years to cover this distance.
Then Allah subhanaw taala said Yarlung Marva in ID him on my cell phone Wallah. Yes Verona Lumenier Tada Mohammed Akasha to him who should be born. Allah said he knows what is before them and what is behind them, and they cannot intercede except for him with whom he is pleased. And they stand in all and fear of him. Gender denial,
the glorious and the magnificent, the Malaika the angels can do nothing on their own. They do not have freewill, they don't decide. They merely carry out the orders of Allah subhanho wa Taala
Allah last round that I said Cal bazooka zebu gonna be deemed are in LA comme la Hafiz Lienz. Kira and Cardi B. ya la Munna Mata for Allah. Allah said, Nay, but you deny the recompense you neither reward and punishment of the Day of Judgment, but verily but verily over you are appointed angels, which are in charge of all of mankind to watch you get Armin cardi B's honorable writers, writing down your deeds and they know all that you do. It's a good thing to remember this when we living our lives so that we know that every single thing that is wireless router does that for my YAML myth. Carla Verratti in hiring your own Yama myth Carlos alright inshallah. Allah said they will come to
know and you will be shown
every good thing you did, and you will be shown every evil thing you did, even if we do something, the size of an atom or an aura or a mustard seed something which is so tiny.
And that is what these angels are recording.
I love this one that I said in the whole account or Assouline, Kareem ZICO watin and ZIL RC McKee Mortarion. Some Amin WOMMA SR Haibo can be much known one Nakamura who will overkill Mubin Verily, this is the word the Quran brought by our most honorable messenger which is wa salaam, owner of power and higher rank with Allah. The rub of the throne obeyed by the angels trustworthy there in the heavens and oh people your companion Mohamed Salah Ali Salam is not mad he's not a madman. He's not mature. And indeed he Mohamed Salah Salem saw him that is debris in the clear horizon towards the east.
And is this is insalata queer.
The angels are a different life form they are they are not they have no gender they're either male or female. Do a Salam sometimes came and appeared in the in human form. And when he came in the human form,
he resembled a one of the companions and his name was yeah, here. I'll tell the key look like him. Or he came as a
Bedouin Arab who nobody knew.
Allah subhanaw taala rebuked and reprimanded the bigger Arabs, the Mushrikeen who claimed that the angels were feminine. And Allah subhanaw taala said I'm Hala Cannella Mala Iike Inasa bombshell hidden Allah said or did we create the angels as females while they were witnesses? They said the angels are the daughters of Allah knows builder and not said
they claim that angels are female. I love it. What are they watching? Did they see me creating did they see us creating them?
The Malacca who are named I mentioned all of them to you except the last one.
So we mentioned we believe in
all the angels were mentioned by name and by Raj Malhotra and rasa Salah and these are Gibreel arrays. Mikael is responsible for red Malik the guardian of Jahannam instead of field erase Allah who is responsible for responsible for blowing the soul molecule mouth, the Angel of Death. Sometimes people use the word Israel. This is not the name of multiple molecules called molecule marks. We do not know what his name is, and to say Israel is not from the Quran or sunnah. Then Ridwan was the guardian of Jana then Kira and Kathy been the protectors and recorders of deeds and Moonga or Nikita those who will question in the grave. And then highroad and Maruthi. I forgot to
mention that before. How to now Morrow
was sent to the city of Babylon to test the fate of people.
There are no reported that as soon as an asylum say the angels say, Oh Allah man intends to do evil. Allah Subhana Allah says do he knows more than they do? Watch him if he does evil, then record it, likewise, and if he abandons it, then record a good deed. For him for Surely, he abandoned it for abandoned it, for my sake. And this is in Bukhari, which shows that the Malaika especially the caramel category, who are writing our deeds, they also know our intentions. So they carry out the duties assigned to them, and they carry out whatever they have been commanded, without any change. So Allah says, record what they do, even though you may know what the intention is, you will record
what they do. If he does a good thing, then you record it and you record 10 Good 1010 rewards for it. If he does, if he thinks of doing a bad thing, then don't do anything. If he does the bad thing, then record it. And if he leaves the bad thing, if you make Stover then give him a good deed, give him a reward right or reward in his favor for that particular thing because Allah said, he left
that deed for my sake. Final point here before the end of today's class.
A last round that I said Yeah, you were looking at almond aku and Fusa Khumba Alikum Nara, Makoto, Hannah Swan, hey Jarrah la mala Iike tune. The villas on she doesn't lie our Soon Allah Hama Amata. Home. Where fri Luna ma Marone Allah say, Do you believe stay away, protect yourself and your families from jahannam. For fire, the fuel of which is men is people and stones over which are appointed angels were stern and severe, and who do not disobey the commands of Allah, that the commands received from Allah subhanaw taala but they do that which they are commanded. So if Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala assigns a person to the hellfire, the angel will throw them personal they'll
fire the angel will not ask Allah subhanaw taala you know, this guy used to be a nice fellow know, what is done is that and how will a nice fellow be sent to the fire because that nice fellow did not believe in Allah subhanho that he did not worship Allah subhana wa Aqeedah is what differentiates is what saves us from the hellfire. Please understand this.
Akiva is what saves us from the Hellfire al Qaeda is the door it is the access card.
After that, the rest follows which is the deeds and so on and so on. This does not mean that if you have the right data that you are automatically saved from all the evil you did. Even with the right Aqeedah you can still end up with the Hellfire because you abuse people because you took away their rights because you murdered somebody because you you maligned somebody and assassinated their character because you lied and cheated and whatnot, and you're oppressed and you and you and you are cruel to people. All of this can still put you in the hellfire.
But you You at least have some chance that at least some of these things might be forgiven because you had the right belief. And of course, obviously if you had the right belief and even if you did all this stuff, but before you died, if you made amends if you make medicine a foreign Toba if you apologize, if you use salt, you repented and you sought the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala you compensated the people for whatever evil you did to them. Then inshallah there is hope that Allah will forgive us and Allah will give us Jana in shall we ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to have the correct Akita to have the correct creed and faith and to remain on its steadfast is with
is the karma until we meet him geladeira masala Allah will carry while he was being mended.
