00:00:00--> 00:00:01

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim

00:00:02--> 00:00:06

al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam O Allah.

00:00:08--> 00:00:14

Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, this livan casita, casita,

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

sisters we are

00:00:20--> 00:00:23

on the class on leaving Islam.

00:00:25--> 00:00:36

Allah, Allah bless you for coming and melismatic Allah enable us to practice this beautiful Deen that Allah sent for our benefit.

00:00:37--> 00:00:43

This is something which is a, which seems to be a self

00:00:45--> 00:00:51

evident thing. But we need to remind ourselves that Islam came for our benefit.

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

Allah did not send this Deen for his benefit Allah scented for our benefit.

00:00:58--> 00:00:59

Now

00:01:02--> 00:01:07

it's very important when we are looking at Islam and looking at the deen

00:01:08--> 00:01:09

to

00:01:10--> 00:01:13

understand and to

00:01:15--> 00:01:21

remember the etiquette of approaching the deen

00:01:23--> 00:01:25

the etiquette of approaching Islam.

00:01:27--> 00:01:35

The reason why it's important to understand that is because like any branch of knowledge,

00:01:37--> 00:01:39

one is the knowledge itself,

00:01:41--> 00:01:50

the learning itself. And the second one which comes before the first one is how to learn the methodology of learning.

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

If we approach the knowledge, without understanding the methodology of learning, then the knowledge doesn't come to us. And we cannot benefit from the knowledge.

00:02:03--> 00:02:07

So So also in Islam, and very much so in Islam.

00:02:09--> 00:02:12

There is a methodology of learning

00:02:13--> 00:02:15

some basic fundamental

00:02:16--> 00:02:24

principles that we understand, which we take as understood, before we approach the deen,

00:02:25--> 00:02:34

for example, there is a basic fundamental principle that we understand and which we must understand, which is the

00:02:36--> 00:02:40

fundamental difference between knowledge of Revelation

00:02:41--> 00:02:47

and any other kind of knowledge, which is your knowledge, knowledge of discovery, experimentation, study Swanson.

00:02:48--> 00:02:53

And that fundamental difference is that in every kind of human knowledge,

00:02:55--> 00:02:58

there is no absolute certainty about anything.

00:02:59--> 00:03:09

Right. So there is we have certain knowledge, which seems certain, but it's certain only because of what we know until that point in time.

00:03:10--> 00:03:37

After some time, this certainty which we had can change. Let me give you some, for example, in medical science, there was a period during which cholesterol was supposed to be an absolute killer. So they advised us and they said, even eggs removed the yolks, only whites of the eggs, no fat, no butter. At one point in time, margarine people used to consume,

00:03:39--> 00:04:24

you know, huge quantities of margarine instead of butter, and so on all of this stuff happened, then the thinking changed. And there's no cholesterol is good for you. There is LDL. And HDL is not all cholesterol is not bad, only some kind of cholesterol is bad. And margarine is basically breast plastic. So junk it right. Don't even touch it. natural foods, organic foods and so on. Now, people sometimes tend to laugh at this. And they say What kind of nonsense is this, and so on and so forth. This is not nonsense. This is very good. This is very good, because it indicates an openness of the mind. It indicates the importance of ongoing research. It's indicates the fact that people who are

00:04:24--> 00:04:59

learned in the sciences, they are not rigid in their views, and they are willing to change their opinions. So just because I have been saying that eggs are bad. When I'm faced with evidence that eggs are not bad, then I'm willing to change my mind. So Angela, there are lots of good things about that. It's not something to scoff at or to laugh at. On the other hand, divine knowledge, the knowledge of Revelation, as I said, non divine language. And I don't mean this in any derogatory sense. I'm just differentiating one from the other. So not

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

Divine language is characterized by uncertainty, it is certain based on what we know till now is this certain for all time, no

00:05:12--> 00:05:29

new knowledge will come up, and then this certainty will change for some other certainty. But with the knowledge of Revelation, the opposite is true, which is that what Allah subhanho wa Taala told us is absolutely certain, and there is no change in it, there will never be any change.

00:05:30--> 00:05:35

Now, the reason I'm saying this is I'm saying why this is important, is because

00:05:37--> 00:05:45

it is all also relates to the other, or the etiquette of referring to the knowledge of Islam and the knowledge revolution.

00:05:47--> 00:05:48

For example, in

00:05:49--> 00:05:54

non divine knowledge, you can probably

00:05:55--> 00:06:06

do would be a bit of a generalization, but you could probably say that everything is a concept, right? So you have a concept of this or a concept of that. But in divine knowledge,

00:06:07--> 00:06:12

it would be accurate to say that nothing is a concept.

00:06:14--> 00:06:25

It was here in this part of the world. I was here 2022 years ago, and I was speaking at Amherst at UMass, and one of the

00:06:26--> 00:06:33

people there and not non Muslim lady, she stood up and said, What is the concept of God in Islam?

00:06:34--> 00:06:36

So I said, there is no concept of God in Islam.

00:06:38--> 00:06:45

So she looked very shocked. She said, What do you mean, there's no concept of God in Islam? There's no concept of God who told you the concept of borders.

00:06:46--> 00:06:53

So she said, I'm sorry, I don't understand what you're saying. I said in Islam, God is not a concept. God is real.

00:06:54--> 00:07:03

So where is the conquest? Where is it? Where does the concept of God is there no concept of God? If you say what is the concept of heaven, Jenna, you know, concept of Jana.

00:07:05--> 00:07:12

What is the contract concept of Jana? There's no concept of Johanna. What do you have a concept of the Day of Judgment? No, sorry. We have no concept of the day of gentlemen.

00:07:15--> 00:07:19

What What did Russell was Allison used to say when he woke up for the hedges

00:07:21--> 00:07:26

Allahumma anta al Huck, Huck, he didn't agenda server

00:07:27--> 00:07:30

is Ola You are a concept. Did you say no?

00:07:31--> 00:07:44

He said Allahu omantel Huck, worthy aka aka Huck to meet you meeting of you is what is the concept? No, no, no, no, no. It is Huck Lika aka Huck

00:07:45--> 00:07:49

Jana to Huck and narrow Huck.

00:07:53--> 00:08:05

Now, the reason I'm saying this is sometimes when we are speaking, not because we are trying to be disrespectful or with any intention, but just this is, you know, we just talk

00:08:06--> 00:08:18

now, with respect to Islam, with respect to Allah, with respect to as well as ourselves, it is extremely, extremely important to be very sure of what we say and how we say it.

00:08:20--> 00:08:23

Because any semblance

00:08:24--> 00:08:31

of disrespect for Allah or Rasulullah sallallahu takes us out of Islam.

00:08:32--> 00:08:46

If you do that deliberately, then you are definitely out of Islam. If you do that, unknowingly, then of course, we have the, you know, the shield of the ignorant to say that I was not aware, but definitely it's a sign of ignorance.

00:08:49--> 00:09:18

So, the use of the word concept with regard to Allah subhanho wa Taala with regard to Salam with regard to all of these things, islamically speaking is incorrect, because in divine knowledge, it there is no concept there is divine knowledge is divine knowledge, the knowledge of Revelation is Huck, it is the truth, it is unchanging, unchangeable, it is being the same, and it will, it will always be the same. So this is the first and foremost principle to understand as far as leaving Islam.

00:09:20--> 00:09:22

And speaking about Islam is concerned.

00:09:23--> 00:09:26

The second very important concept to understand

00:09:27--> 00:09:32

is the concept of the hit La Ilaha Illa. Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah.

00:09:33--> 00:09:37

And I'm saying this also to illustrate what I said earlier with regard to the

00:09:39--> 00:09:42

understanding of Islam. So if I say for example,

00:09:45--> 00:09:52

how do you enter Islam? Let me ask you this question. Supposing you say, I suppose somebody comes to us, I want to become Muslim. What will you ask him to do?

00:09:54--> 00:09:54

What would

00:09:57--> 00:09:58

take Shahada? What are the other

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Allah Allah Allah.

00:10:02--> 00:10:11

Muhammad Rasul Allah right. Now if somebody says, Well I am okay with saying, Allah, Allah Allah. But I don't want to say Mohammed also.

00:10:13--> 00:10:14

Is he a Muslim? No.

00:10:16--> 00:10:18

What is the very what is the proof of this?

00:10:19--> 00:10:32

The proof of this the biggest proof of this is in the Sierra itself, which is the people of Quraysh of Mk. Who said this, they said and the best example of that is Abu Bakr himself, or Gallardo.

00:10:33--> 00:10:37

Even at the time of Fatah, Maka

00:10:38--> 00:10:53

rasulillah. Salam was camped outside Mecca in the night. And next morning, the army was going to enter Makkah. So at this huge army camp is outside of Makkah, Abu sufian along with another

00:10:54--> 00:11:10

friend of his, they came out of Makkah to scout and to see to see what is the size of this army which has come and so on and so forth. So they came and they were standing on a hill hillock when they got caught by the guards.

00:11:11--> 00:11:59

So I was very good probably I mean, they would probably have been killed because they were spies. But I saved them. And then Allah buzz when Abu Talib Agha Allahu he found them so he he's related obviously they are they were they you know they are from the same from separation from magic. So Allah Batra delanco took Abu via put him on the moon of Rasulullah salah and brought him that was to save him because otherwise somebody would have killed him. So to put him on, he put him on the middle of his asylum. And he brought him in the presence of a solar cell. So and there, he said, he said, Where are you willing to accept Islam? I've also said I'm willing to say Laila heilala

00:12:01--> 00:12:37

I'm willing to accept that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah. Why was that? Why was he willing to do that? Because in any case, the fresh they among all the gods they worshipped, allow us one of the gods they worshipped Allah and they call Allah the head God and when people told them Why do you worship idols? They said no, no No these idols are the daughters of the head God and be worshipped them to get close to the head god this as the Quran says all this right. So we know this this the image, so for them to say Laila, hi Lola was a step it was not difficult for them. So I was even said ly ly willing to say,

00:12:39--> 00:12:44

but Mohammed Rasul Allah, He said that I am not willing to say because you are my cousin.

00:12:45--> 00:12:52

I mean, I know you I know you from we played together as kids I mean to for me to accept that you are a messenger of Allah is not possible.

00:12:53--> 00:13:06

So Allah, Allah, Allah said, I am free of you. If somebody kills you, that is your responsibilities and you are dumb headed man you have we have no sense you don't understand what situation there is. And I am free. I tried to save you. I can't save you goodbye.

00:13:08--> 00:13:11

But Rasulullah sallallahu intervened he said nobody will have him.

00:13:12--> 00:13:53

He did not force him to accept Islam. He did not force him to say Muhammad Rasul Allah is a nobody will hire me. And then he said to Allah, bustle Delano, he says, he's under my protection now take him and show him the art. Because I don't want them to become unnecessarily adventurous tomorrow. And as a result of that, there will be a lot of deaths repeat people will be killed. I don't want to do that. Let them see that this is overwhelming force. They can't find it anyway. So let them allow us to enter Makkah peacefully. So I was aware and was taken around he was shown he went back safely next day. So as a result of entered, Makkah, and Macau was conquered.

00:13:55--> 00:14:13

And then I've also VR and his wife, they were hinda Allahumma. They were in their house, and they spoke between themselves. And Allah subhanho wa Taala sent Jubilee Salah informed Rosada Salaam that this is what Abu sufian said to his wife and this is what the wife replied.

00:14:14--> 00:14:21

So when I was when Kim Rosella rossano said, This is what you said to your wife in your house and this is what your wife said, I was

00:14:23--> 00:14:33

I said, I accept that you are the Rasul of Allah nobody was there except me and my wife. There is no way that you could have known this unless you're Rob informed you and your I've informed you so I am

00:14:34--> 00:14:41

accepting Islam. Now, the reason I told you this whole long story is because sometimes

00:14:43--> 00:14:45

some people with good intentions,

00:14:46--> 00:14:50

they will say something like, as long as you say Lyla, heilala that is enough.

00:14:51--> 00:14:56

Please understand, it is not enough. You can say ally ally Lola, did you agreed in the face You are not a Muslim?

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

Islam is not dialogue. Islam is La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah

00:15:07--> 00:15:34

in a manner of speaking, and again I'm not promoting this and just explaining to you in terms of Arabic grammar, in a manner of speaking if somebody simply says Muhammad Rasul Allah, he has accepted Islam because by many saying Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Is there a surah of Allah? He has also accepted Allah. But if he only says La ilaha illAllah there is no mention of Mombasa Sana

00:15:35--> 00:15:36

he's not a Muslim.

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala sent is the

00:15:41--> 00:15:42

Allah could have just sent his Deen

00:15:44--> 00:15:51

by any means that he wanted. Without a prophet Allah could have done this. This is not something that Allah was not capable of doing.

00:15:54--> 00:16:05

Allah did not do that. Allah subhanaw taala sent his Deen and unless valterra called the one who brought the deen his Namah

00:16:06--> 00:16:18

Allah called Allah didn't call Islam the Nam. Allah did not even call for an AMA. These are Names of Allah subhanaw taala Is it the name of Allah I'm not denying the eyesight. And you're saying that as far as what Allah called and niyama

00:16:19--> 00:16:23

Allah subhanaw taala called Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam dunya

00:16:24--> 00:16:33

Allah zelican man Allahu Allah me Nina is basa Fie him Rasul Allah. Allah did not cease Bashar vim, Geeta

00:16:35--> 00:16:39

Allah Sadie bosavi hemara sola min unfussy him.

00:16:41--> 00:16:48

Allah said Verily and truly Allah subhanho wa Taala has blessed the believers by sending to them

00:16:49--> 00:16:53

he's gonna soul His messenger from amongst themselves.

00:16:55--> 00:17:04

So this is a double honor, one that Allah sent His messenger and second, the messenger is one of them.

00:17:05--> 00:17:18

Allah could have sent an angel, Allah would have sent somebody from somewhere else no, Allah said I have sent the messenger number one benefit and number two is the messenger is wrong among them. Double honor and then what did Allah say?

00:17:20--> 00:17:26

year to Allah him it he will use a key name omole kita Baba al hikma

00:17:28--> 00:17:29

with four things

00:17:30--> 00:17:34

to recite to them. The column of Allah.

00:17:37--> 00:17:52

Yes, through either him to recite to them, the Ayat of Allah was a key to purify them. External purification internal purification does carefulness water bottle Aflac?

00:17:55--> 00:17:59

Will you I'll name old kita and to teach them the key tap

00:18:01--> 00:18:01

these Who?

00:18:02--> 00:18:07

People who are the experts of the knowledge of the of the language.

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

Right?

00:18:10--> 00:18:49

He's not talking about Bangladeshis and Pakistanis, and Indians and you know, America, he's talking about the Arabs, the people of Origin The other tribes there, for whom? classical Quranic Arabic, which we know till today, even today. I don't know how many of you are aware but even today, in a when there is a debate on a linguistic issue with respect to the Quran, a particular word, how was this word? How is this what is the exact meaning of this word? How, what is the usage? How is it understood? You know, what they do? They go back in the sources to say, How did the Sahaba understand this word?

00:18:51--> 00:19:11

And that is taken as the correct interpretation of that word. They don't say it in modern Arabic, what is it for English and hoodoo and what? They don't even take the Arabic understanding? They say, What did the Sahaba Understand? How did they understand because these were the people who actually received the revelation they heard the Quran, from the voice of Mohammed Salah.

00:19:13--> 00:19:14

So what was there to teach them?

00:19:16--> 00:19:34

You are sending your book, you are sending your message to a people in their language. And those people are the experts of the language, what is there to teach? So obviously, Allah is saying, there is something to teach. What does it mean? It means there is something to teach.

00:19:35--> 00:19:47

It means that the word Allah has given, but Allah has also given his his Wi Fi ceram an understanding and a comprehension of that word, which is not there in the world.

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

So if you simply read the word, you don't get that you get the word. Sure, fair enough. You are an expert in the language you get the word, but you don't get the comprehension of that you don't get the understanding of that. For this, you have to make rules.

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

To the level you have to go and sit at the feet of me ask him

00:20:03--> 00:20:09

where you are level we'll get up a while achema the overall wisdom of that

00:20:10--> 00:20:32

how it is to be practiced. And then Allah subhanaw taala reiterated and emphasized Allah said we're in garneau min kaaboo Luffy Allah Allah movie in Allah sir were really and truly they were before this Min kaaboo Luffy again, emphasis truly they were misguided.

00:20:35--> 00:21:01

So now if somebody comes to you and says, the Kitab of Allah is enough, I have the book of Allah. I have gone through this translation. I have gone suffused one is translation. I've got some other oral translation. I've got English translation by Yusuf Ali. I've got another English translation by somebody else. And why do I need in that Allahu La la la hora de La Villa run far away from such statements.

00:21:05--> 00:21:30

If the people who were the experts of the Arabic language, who actually heard the Koran with southie, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam if they needed Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to teach them. And if you are telling me you don't need him, then please go and do whatever you like with your life. Because as far as I'm concerned, and arboreum income I am free from you. I have I don't take responsibility for you or that statement.

00:21:33--> 00:21:46

You get the one I make. So with regard to approach to Islam, the basic fundamentals of how to approach the deen must be learned before you even touch any part of the deen

00:21:49--> 00:21:54

To give you an example, I know English, right? Alhamdulillah normally better than most people.

00:21:55--> 00:22:14

Now here is Dr. sagarmatha. He's a doctor. So I say to him What is so great about your medicine that you studied? I know English I can I can pick up the book I will read all about diabetes I'll read all about these are all about that. And as far as I'm concerned your patients instead of going to Dr. Saba Mateen you come to me I'll speak to at half the price.

00:22:16--> 00:22:25

So I set up my shop next to it and I'm in competition with you have English I mean I'm reading what's the big deal you're not getting? I'm not getting away I'm reading English.

00:22:27--> 00:22:27

What is it?

00:22:30--> 00:22:30

what it is

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

I'm not qualified right? Even though I am reading English.

00:22:37--> 00:22:38

The book is in English.

00:22:40--> 00:22:41

You will just listen you

00:22:42--> 00:22:44

are not going to you I value my life.

00:22:47--> 00:23:04

You might know English but you are not a doctor you didn't go to college you did not study under somebody you are not a surgeon you did not practice you did not have somebody for your is law. Nobody corrected you nobody did anything. You simply pick up a book, you start reading the book and now you start giving prescriptions. Sorry, doesn't work.

00:23:05--> 00:23:07

Then my submission to you is how does this work with the Quran.

00:23:09--> 00:23:28

And with the Quran, most of us we don't even know the language. You pick up the Quran in Arabic and you read it in English or you read it or you read in Bangla or read in Malayalam or Tamil or something God knows what. And then you want to make pronouncements on the Quran and you want to say in my opinion, this in my opinion that Who are you and what is your opinion

00:23:30--> 00:23:31

it is what less

00:23:34--> 00:23:39

your intention may be good but believe me, my brother and sisters The Road to janome is paved with good intentions.

00:23:40--> 00:23:46

What is the intent what was the intention of the of the Christians when they made a solemn Son of God good intentions or bad intentions.

00:23:49--> 00:23:53

good intention. I mean, they said that this man is so good, he cannot be human.

00:23:54--> 00:23:55

It has to be divine.

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

So they are praising him.

00:24:00--> 00:24:05

They are raising his his his level good intention. But we accept this.

00:24:09--> 00:24:28

The Road to jahannam is paved with good intentions. good intention alone does not satisfy the criteria of a good deed. good intention is one of the requirements what is a good intention that intention to be free from real freedom from showing off must have sincerity. That's only one condition.

00:24:29--> 00:24:30

But there are other conditions.

00:24:34--> 00:24:52

So the issue of saying my opinion and let me give you again. This is not I am not I should also not be my bias not my way I'm telling you I'm giving you the Quran and the Sunnah. Now, Allah subhanaw taala in Surah gulaba in the 30 of Jews, Allah subhanaw taala revealed desire for FARC he has a BA

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

that is one of the ayat of Surah Coronavirus. The fact when this ayah was revealed

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

Man came to Walker city for the run.

00:25:02--> 00:25:12

And he said to him, yeah vaca Allahu Allah has revealed Yato Abba, we understand why you have which means fruits. What is.

00:25:13--> 00:25:15

He said we understand hubba

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

hubba

00:25:19--> 00:25:28

newly sprouting suit. So he said, we understand why Gaea we understand Hubba but here it is up to what is them.

00:25:29--> 00:25:49

Now, who is he asking? He's asking our currency for the lamb, who is our Casa de la rasulillah salam is sitting and with him are his two companions, Abu Bakar and Omar are they Allahumma a lady comes to him and she asks him a question as well as an asylum tells her come back tomorrow

00:25:50--> 00:25:51

and I will tell you,

00:25:52--> 00:26:02

so she says tomorrow if you are not here, meaning if you have died, if you have passed away, he said if you are not here, what should I do? Now visualisierung said as Abubakar

00:26:04--> 00:26:06

savoca Will not you know your friend

00:26:08--> 00:26:18

who has a status given by ASAP himself? He said if I'm not here as a worker, he said if a worker is not there, what should I do? He said ask Allah.

00:26:19--> 00:26:34

This is the status of the Sahaba and the status of the fall of Ayesha Deen and this data especially of Abu Bakr and Omar, Allahu Allah, as mentioned in this I had this with ressourcer now this Abu Bakr radi Allahu

00:26:38--> 00:26:43

observable Bashara with Ali Baba ram bi which is in the in the Duma.

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

He's never is what after the ambia number one

00:26:50--> 00:26:56

man comes to him and asked him Allah has revealed or fact Yato about what is the meaning of Abba?

00:26:58--> 00:27:00

Did our workers if they say, you know,

00:27:02--> 00:27:07

in my opinion, I think this is what it should mean. It is a

00:27:09--> 00:27:10

no,

00:27:11--> 00:27:27

Abubakar, Gallardo said, which earth will shield me? Which earth will hide me and which sky will shield me? If I say about the Gita above Allah that which I don't know.

00:27:30--> 00:27:36

The man is not asking for a fatwa. The man is not asking what he is only asking the meaning of one word.

00:27:38--> 00:27:40

So did our city who

00:27:42--> 00:27:45

as is our custom nowadays with a lot of people,

00:27:46--> 00:28:01

use this term in my opinion, please take this term in my opinion out of your dictionary. When you are referring to the column of Allah you and your opinion I and my opinion have no value whatsoever remove it.

00:28:05--> 00:28:14

Avec Casa de la Rosa says which sky will she'll be and which earth will hide me if I say about the Kitab of Allah that which I don't know.

00:28:17--> 00:28:19

So the man goes to Omar Abdullah para Bella.

00:28:20--> 00:28:23

And he says to him, yeah, Omar Delano.

00:28:24--> 00:28:27

Allah will back you up What is up?

00:28:29--> 00:28:38

Omar Delano says Vikki How will you be we know which is roots and hapa you know, which is a new shoot.

00:28:40--> 00:28:42

Indeed, what is up?

00:28:43--> 00:28:45

Then immediately?

00:28:46--> 00:29:00

He says woe to you over he lemons himself. He lambaste himself. He's a word to you, Omar, what are you trying to do? You want to say about the Kitab of Allah which you don't know.

00:29:04--> 00:29:23

This was the this was the carefulness, the care and the concern of the Sahaba is La la la made by my brother said to you, that if any people as a people, if any generation had justification to use the term in my opinion, it was the Sahaba

00:29:25--> 00:29:27

they could have justifiably said it

00:29:30--> 00:29:31

because they were witness to the Quran.

00:29:32--> 00:29:47

So they could have just said, okay, we know I am religion of Islam for so many years. We have had so many discussions and so on and so forth. So I think probably this is what it means my opinion, never, never, you will never see this with the sabarimala 11.

00:29:49--> 00:29:51

Never even at basil delana

00:29:52--> 00:29:55

the one who Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam made

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

to give him the farm and the understory.

00:30:00--> 00:30:04

ending of the foreign he's called the overseer of the, of the oma.

00:30:06--> 00:30:10

Even the apostle delana says that he was about maybe 10 years old or so.

00:30:11--> 00:30:22

And he said, I saw rasulillah salam waking up for the head. You imagine what kind of a generation that was? This 10 year old boy saying, I saw the Prophet wake up, meaning what was he doing?

00:30:23--> 00:30:24

He was already up.

00:30:26--> 00:30:39

Right? It's not that he woke up and then woke up. Even though he was already up, he said, I saw him waking up. So I ran and got water for him for Buddha.

00:30:42--> 00:31:01

As soon as Arizona blue and then as soon as Arizona put his blessed hand on the just of our of the law bus, and he said, Oh, like give him the finger of them. Give him the understanding of the date. Give him the understanding of the law. So he had the he had the door of the Abu Salah Salah

00:31:03--> 00:31:07

his way, when he used to give fatwa

00:31:09--> 00:31:23

if somebody did something or they asked some question, his way when he used to give footwork, he never said this is wrong. This is haram, you will go to Ghana. No, no, no. He would say I don't know whether Allah will accept this or not.

00:31:28--> 00:31:31

Does it mean that he was not sure? No.

00:31:32--> 00:31:36

It is just his calf being careful with the column of Allah.

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

What we call it yet

00:31:42--> 00:31:43

one more datalogger.

00:31:44--> 00:31:53

Very, very careful with Allah Subhana Allah, the boundaries of Allah the Adam of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:31:56--> 00:32:15

So in this concept of being careful with Allah also now we come to the third issue, which is that with regard to the Quran, and especially with regard to honors Van otara himself, and with regard to many instances, and many is relating to the hype.

00:32:16--> 00:32:23

Unless Rondo de la in his wisdom, chose to express certain things in certain ways.

00:32:25--> 00:32:38

Please understand that developers Rano tala wanted to dissect everything and tell us everything in the minutus detail, there was nobody stopping Allah subhanaw taala from doing that kind of sick request.

00:32:43--> 00:32:50

Right. If Allah subhanaw taala wanted to explain in the minutus detail.

00:32:51--> 00:32:56

For example, what is the ash? For example, what is the cusi?

00:32:57--> 00:33:00

For example, what is the meaning of some words?

00:33:02--> 00:33:11

For example, when Amazon is out is it this earth or is it some other earth because the Quran Allah subhanaw taala meant mentioned seven Earth's not what

00:33:16--> 00:33:33

Allah would have explained on this it was the one that was not submitting the Quran to his editor and the editor said no no excuse me, you know it has to be so many word count whenever I'm an author I'm a writer so I know this editors do that you submit a book there's no can't have so many pages, nobody will buy a book with so many pages.

00:33:34--> 00:33:40

So reduce the number of words allow us not submitting is without to an editor you know, word count variable.

00:33:42--> 00:33:47

Allah couldn't explain everything in the mind it was detailed Allah did not do that. Why?

00:33:49--> 00:34:02

Unless Renata explained what he wanted to explain, what Allah did not want to explain Allah did not explain Allah subhanaw taala just showed us a Shara only Allah sort of made points and marked.

00:34:04--> 00:34:18

He left things which he did not explain. Now this was not to confuse you or not. This is for us to as this as a science of Allah. For example, Allah said, Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah said his art is on water.

00:34:19--> 00:34:20

Which What?

00:34:23--> 00:34:23

Where is water?

00:34:27--> 00:34:28

Where does the water

00:34:30--> 00:34:33

Allah said the morning when it's Bree when it breeds

00:34:36--> 00:34:37

wanting breeds?

00:34:39--> 00:34:40

What is the meaning of morning breeds?

00:34:49--> 00:34:54

Allah Allah mentioned surah Teresa. Allah said, Well, yes or no naka Annie ro.

00:34:55--> 00:34:57

They asked you about the roof.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

They gave no Salah.

00:35:00--> 00:35:09

They asked me what is the root? What is this spirit? Many of us, if not all of us, we have bathed dead bodies, right?

00:35:12--> 00:35:13

The first one I built

00:35:14--> 00:35:17

was here in this budget 22 years ago.

00:35:19--> 00:35:21

There was a doctor, the Syrian doctor and based it

00:35:22--> 00:35:27

hospital. He was a head of the department of nuclear medicine.

00:35:29--> 00:35:33

hale and hearty man. In his 60s, he dropped dead on a tennis court

00:35:34--> 00:35:35

playing tennis.

00:35:37--> 00:35:40

So his wife found here and check with somebody.

00:35:42--> 00:35:44

And she said my husband, I think was a Muslim.

00:35:48--> 00:36:03

She had no idea she was Christian, the four children, all Christian. She said my husband, however, I think was a Muslim. And he this is what happened is he died? And I think he would have been, he would have wanted to be buried in the Muslim way.

00:36:06--> 00:36:07

So can you make arrangements?

00:36:09--> 00:36:20

So Chuck Todd spoke to her is are you Muslim? Did you ever see your husband pray? He said, No. Did he ever tell you anything about Islam ever? been married for his elder son was 40 something years old?

00:36:23--> 00:36:26

So in 40 plus years, the woman never saw him pray.

00:36:28--> 00:36:32

Did he tell you anything about Islam? No, he didn't tell you anything about Islam. And so on is over.

00:36:34--> 00:36:35

So do we know is also

00:36:36--> 00:36:36

we don't know.

00:36:39--> 00:37:07

So I asked him, I said, Sir, is it okay, will you permit me to go and do so and so on for him because I felt bad. You know, here is this woman phoning and saying this or whatever the fifth of it. I'm not getting involved in that. I'm not arguing about the fifth of the thing. But somehow for me to just leave the man there and you know, let them go and put him in a vault somewhere. I didn't like it. So I said let me go. Just said I have no objection. You can go if you like, but I will not come here. Okay.

00:37:09--> 00:37:38

So myself, and there were two brothers here at Burger chef. And then a couple of I think we're three one more puzzle forums. We went to the this body was in a funeral home. So we spoke to the guy we said we need visa, what do you need to bathe and so on? So we told him we need a just a table and so first body I based was this man's body. And believe me, we'll lay that thing completely till today. When I think about that it shakes me from inside.

00:37:40--> 00:37:43

This man looked like he was sleeping. That's it.

00:37:46--> 00:37:47

That is it.

00:37:48--> 00:38:14

So obviously, the people this was an experience for all of them. So they said yes, I don't know ganja row. Allah said they are asking you what is the room? Because here is here is a man who's walking around hale and hearty. This rule, whatever it is, is taken out from him. And he's dead. But Has anything changed? How do his eyes look different? Or is yours or twisted or is no nothing, nothing is exactly the same. He looks like he is just fast asleep.

00:38:17--> 00:38:35

And talking about the ayat relating to the web and our attitude to that. So now Allah subhanaw taala is up, they came and asked gnosis they said what is the rule? So Allah subhanaw taala says yes or no naka Nero, they are asking you or Muhammad what is the rule Salah lauricella.

00:38:36--> 00:38:42

So technically speaking, or, or logically speaking, what should I have done?

00:38:43--> 00:38:45

Unless you don't explain No, what is the rule?

00:38:46--> 00:38:56

Allah should have said the rule is made of this and so on and right, what did Allah say? are rowhome in armory, Robbie.

00:38:58--> 00:39:03

The row is the armor of Allah. The rule is an order of Allah.

00:39:05--> 00:39:06

Now

00:39:08--> 00:39:09

so what did you understand? What is the rule?

00:39:11--> 00:39:16

We don't know. Exactly. As your question would you give me an answer which I don't understand.

00:39:19--> 00:39:30

So what must we do? And then Allah says mama ot to me, not at me in kalila and we have given you from our knowledge only a little bit.

00:39:36--> 00:39:59

So the as far as the issue of Dean is concerned, if you're unless cancer unless Ronald Allah tells us what he wants to tell us. Allah informs us what he wants to inform us. And this is in keeping with his glory and majesty and grace as the creator and sustainer as Rabbil alameen as Abu Rochelle Kareem Abdul Jabbar

00:40:00--> 00:40:06

Willie kromm as our hammer Rahimi as well for him, this is Allah subhanho wa Taala perogative

00:40:07--> 00:40:12

which we as the slaves of Allah as the Iberdrola

00:40:13--> 00:40:14

do not question.

00:40:16--> 00:40:45

So, the basic fundamental is not a class on Al Qaeda. But one of this point I must mention the basic fundamental principle of al Qaeda of the Muslims of the Sudanese is what that we are we do not ask about Allah we believe what Allah subhanaw taala told us about himself and about the way but we do not ask questions about that. We are we believe what Allah said Billa case we don't ask how

00:40:47--> 00:40:57

our para la explained this, he said Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Salah Samoa d'Ivoire, the visitor the mean, must Allah, Allah Allah.

00:40:58--> 00:41:06

Allah said he has created the heavens and the earth in seven days. And then he made his theva on the ash.

00:41:08--> 00:41:13

He said, we believe that Allah subhana wa Taala Where is Allah Allah is on earth?

00:41:14--> 00:41:36

If you say what is the nature when we say is the law? or What does it mean? is Allah standing on it? is he sitting on it? Is he lying down on this vow? The law, we don't make these the unjust things they explain? What is the answer? The answer is, we don't know. We don't ask. Why don't we ask? It's a logical question. Why don't we ask? We don't ask because there is no way of answering.

00:41:39--> 00:41:40

You will ask whom?

00:41:42--> 00:41:43

You ask me.

00:41:44--> 00:41:45

You are somebody like me?

00:41:46--> 00:41:49

Who will answer? How Will anybody answer?

00:41:51--> 00:41:57

You only the answer is to go and see it. Can you go and see, can I go and see it? No. Or if one comes?

00:41:59--> 00:42:02

And if I tell you that liberalism came and told me that what

00:42:05--> 00:42:08

that what must you do? You must flushed down the toilet, right?

00:42:12--> 00:42:23

So when we say Villa cave, why do we believe that people say sometimes, or there is blind blind faith in Islam? Please understand, there's no blind faith in Islam. In Islam, there is faith with understanding

00:42:25--> 00:42:27

how. Let me give you an example.

00:42:29--> 00:42:33

Once again, my friend dear My brother, Dr. COVID-19.

00:42:34--> 00:42:35

If I get sick

00:42:37--> 00:42:44

he is my doctor. I go to him as a human. What's happened to me? These are my symptoms. He tells me he just tablet.

00:42:45--> 00:42:47

So what do I do? Why did I don't need it?

00:42:50--> 00:42:56

So if I take the tablet without a sugar machine, give me What will you say you're gonna blind faith in sugar? Nothing? No.

00:42:57--> 00:43:03

Before I went to sugar, nothing, I found out who is Shogun Mati? Is he a doctor?

00:43:04--> 00:43:18

Is he pretending to be a doctor? Does anyone else know him as a doctor? Does he have other customers? Does he have other patients, I go talk to the patient. I satisfy myself that here is a man who's highly competent, who's highly, highly experienced, right?

00:43:20--> 00:43:30

So now when I go to him, and if I listen to him without question, is it faith blind faith? Or is it faith with the understanding that I am listening to an expert? Which one?

00:43:33--> 00:43:46

So when I say that I obey Allah subhanho wa Taala without question, is it blind faith? Or is it faith knowing that Allah subhanho wa Taala Jalla Jalla wa Manalo is Rob bhullar shell Karim?

00:43:49--> 00:44:02

Hello, blind faith. I have first determined that only and only Allah subhanho wa Jalla Jalla. Who is worthy of worship? I have determined and I am completely and totally convinced

00:44:04--> 00:44:15

that he is my rub. Gentle, gentle. So then when I obey Him and obey he obeying Him with this complete and total understanding, where is the blind faith, there no blind bit.

00:44:22--> 00:44:37

So with respect to Allah subhanaw taala. We believe whatever Allah told us, as he told us, without asking how for those questions, which are in the realm of the height

00:44:38--> 00:44:48

of the unknown, now Alice rantala mentioned is very specifically in the era in sort of algebra in number seven

00:44:50--> 00:44:52

where Allah subhanho wa Taala said

00:44:58--> 00:44:58

it was one of those, it

00:45:15--> 00:45:35

Last month I said hola De Anza analytical Geeta mean who I am to mukava tone hoonah omole kita Haru Mota shabby hat for ambala Xena v ob him zaven for your Muna mata shaba hamin. who they are all fit and it was

00:45:37--> 00:45:51

really one mama Yala mo da Vila de la la hora hora fill me up una de la min en de la Vina mama Yes, Kuru Illa

00:45:52--> 00:46:12

Allah said it is he Jalla Jalla who has sent down to you Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the book that is this Quran, in it are I acts which are entirely clear, and they are the foundations of the book, these are what is called the law of karma.

00:46:14--> 00:46:16

And then these are

00:46:18--> 00:46:49

the followed and so on, so on. And then other ions, which are Mota shabbiha, which are not entirely clear, Allah is mentioning is clearly Allah saying some things are absolutely clear, some things are not so clear. Then Allah says so as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation, there is a disease, they follow that which is not entirely clear seeking fitna they are seeking controversy, and seeking for its hidden meaning.

00:46:51--> 00:46:58

Right, hidden meaning, but nobody knows the hidden meanings except Allah.

00:47:00--> 00:47:14

But those who are firmly grounded in knowledge, they say, we believe in it, the four are the whole of it, what is clear, and what is unclear that all of these are from our rub Jalla Jalla.

00:47:15--> 00:47:26

And none receive admonition and none receive warning and correction and guidance, except people of understanding and this is in the Sierra Nevada.

00:47:27--> 00:47:31

So in terms of leaving Islam, I thought let us

00:47:32--> 00:47:42

clarify some fundamental things before we go ahead with regard to the other way of studying Islam. And then that is that

00:47:43--> 00:48:25

with respect to a loss of analog data, and with respect to whatever of the vibe that Allah subhanaw taala mentioned, we believe in it, we believe what Allah has told us, as he told us, without unnecessarily going into all kinds of conjecture and philosophy keishon and philosophizing and all of that stuff. No, we don't ask how we don't go into conjecture. We don't philosophize. We don't create theories, we don't create concepts, we believe what Allah has told us how he told us and we accept that we have only that much of knowledge and we do not have more knowledge and you are not going to get more knowledge by asking needless questions number one, number two,

00:48:26--> 00:48:33

with respect to Allah is Allah is Allah we believe and we accept that we have this Deen

00:48:35--> 00:49:20

because of the guidance of Mohammed Salah Salah. We accept that this Deen we all the greatest debt to Rasulullah saw Salah we accept that in this Deen rasulillah salam is the Greatest Name of Allah subhanho wa Taala which Allah subhanaw taala sent and therefore we refer to Allah subhanaw taala. And we refer to a source or a seller with the highest level of respect that is possible in terms of our language. And we are extremely careful with regard to how we refer to Allah and how we refer to Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep us on the straight path and never to allow us and to deviate from that. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to be

00:49:20--> 00:49:37

pleased with you and never to be displeased. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to open our hearts to guidance to Hidayat, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept all our doors. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah be pleased and never to be displeased with us was on the HANA Bill Coronavirus. He was abused by erotica Amara
