Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu wa salam O Allah shadowfell, MBA with mousseline, Muhammad Rasulullah, sallallahu alayhi, wa aalihi, wa sahbihi wa sallam, de Sleeman kathira and kathira mavado my brothers and sisters, this is the first
of our sessions inshallah, starting today
on Duska Wetherby
we ask Allah Subhana Allah to be pleased with us and to enable us to actually do this thing which we are talking about, which is the skill to knifes and
purification of the of the nerves of the self or the soul of the heart and changing our behavior that will be at two o'clock is two more of these two
is to is to is to create and change our behavior, our luck,
our manners, the way we deal with people and so on.
to begin with I must
I want to begin with the the delille Why do we need to have the scare to enough's under the law at all.
So, let us see what the column of Allah
tells us in teaches us about the importance of this large amount of data mentioned Rasul Allah is
in a very beautiful way
when he said I will be lemony chatango Rahim Allah said laquered one Allahu Allah Marina is vasavi him Rasul Allah Minh and foresee him here to LA him Maya he was a key him where you are limo mala Kitab al hikma for in Cairo Min covelo Luffy Dali movie
said which means
Verily, We have blessed the momineen lock on man Allah Allah momineen. Very and truly we have sent a great blessing on the believers. We have blessed the believers we are blessed the more money that we have created and raised from among themselves in a way
either bicep Fie him or Rasulullah Minh unfussy that we raised a
messenger that we sent a messenger
who was raised from among them. Now this is a blessing. And it's a blessing in two ways. The first way in which this is a blessing is the fact that Allah subhanaw taala sent His messenger to us.
To the believers, the ayat obviously is addressed to the
companions, the Sahaba of us also selam. It is addressed to the chorus it is addressed to the Arabs of the time. But of course, as we know, the as Bible knows all of the circumstances of revelation of iron, are meant for us to understand the revelation better, and to understand the circumstances in which these ayat were revealed. But the river The revelation itself, the ad themselves, they apply to all of humankind till the end of time. So no matter that the ads were revealed, this ad was revealed.
The circumstances of revelation are that it was revealed for the and the address it is being addressed to and the people being addressed are the believers of the time. They are the Arabs of the time and the non Arabs of the time were believers. It would be specific also to the coloration the people of Makkah and Medina. But the point here is that later on Medina, but the point here is that the
ad applies to us. So let me tell us on first and foremost, blessing of Allah subhanaw taala is the very fact that Allah subhanho wa Taala chose to send his NaVi some Allahu Allah he values himself to the believers to the Muslims, in order that he may do four things to be freed before we come to the 14 so the first thing is Allah said second the second thing is Allah
basa females Allah min and force him and this NaVi was not a foreigner. This w was not a other worldly creature that I'm he was not an angel, a malloc or something like that. The NaVi was raised from the people that were
selves. So Alice rattle is saying that not only did I bless you by sending you an IV, but I gave you an IV, who is one of yourselves, he is from you, he is one of you. Now, therefore there is a
for for us as believers, there is an honor that Allah subhanaw taala is bestowing upon us by sending the Nabhi. And there is an honor which is an honor by association, right? It's like people associate
with or try to associate with significant people with great people in the world, and say that I'm from that family,
I belong to that line age of people. My name means this and this is the part of my name which signifies that I am from this family or this, this line of people and so on and so forth. Believe me, there is nobody in the entire creation
in the entire universe, who is more honorable than in a way they have the time, there is no one who is more honorable than a soul of the time. And there is no one who is more honorable than ours soul who is one of the all as one of the steadfast ones. And of course, all the MBO is steadfast. But there were five of them, one was very specifically mentioned. And there is no one more honorable than the best of all creation. And that is Mohammed Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa, he was he was an
analyst, rather saying that this honor, Allah subhanaw taala gave to the believers. So we need to, when we read the Quran,
we need to get a sense of what we are saying.
Right, just don't just read it.
What does it mean? Here is Allah saying that I have sent this is my great blessing on you, that I've sent you in a be absent tomorrow. So my messenger sallallahu sallam, and he is one of you. He is from among you know what? How does that make you feel?
How does it make you feel?
Just think about that. Think about this and say that how does this make you feel?
And if it doesn't make you feel anything, that's, that's a matter of great.
Great concern. So we need to think about this very seriously. So how does this make me feel? How should it make me feel? I mean, literally, I should be walking on air to say that Savonarola, this is the mercy of my Rob jello. And that is why when I read this, I said, Why don't
you give all of this without asking?
You gave me all of this without asking, did I ask to be to be born a Muslim? Did I ask for us and sell them to be
to have an association with him? Elisa? Did I ask for the love of Allah and the love of his resources to be my heart, they asked for a orientational thinking to try to study the Syrah for salsa Salah, and to try to relate it in ways which are compatible with the modern world, not by changing anything Allah knows best, but by trying to interpret it in our modern context, so that it becomes something which is possible and easy for us to implement is I never asked for any of this stuff. Yet by Rob Zilla. delallo gave it to me.
So I say to my Rob Yara, you gave me all of this without asking. Now I'm asking you for your forgiveness. I'm asking you for john, please give me just please give me forgiveness. I want to meet you please make the decision.
I want each of you. I'm not saying this to to to show off for something May Allah protect me from that I knew from that. I'm saying this to ask you to simply think about your own life. And think about the blessings of Allah in your life.
Things that Allah give you without asking for it.
ask Allah subhanho wa Taala the same thing and Sierra you gave me all of this without asking or give me Jana because I'm asking give me forgiveness Forgive me because I'm asking if you give me all these are asking now asking you please give me
so your last rather saying that. This is the blessing of Allah. You did not ask for an AVI to be sent. Allah sent. You did not ask for this NaVi to be from among you. Send us an AVI and send us one of our own people. You didn't you didn't ask this. But Allah gave you so think about this. Try to get this into our hearts. So that we begin everything we
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen we begin everything with acknowledging and praising and glorifying and accepting and being grateful to Allah subhana wa Taala
and then allow us around that I said, Why did you send this stubby Elisa lap? yet to LA him it was a key him where you are limo Makita
Allah tell us give them enough sources for jobs to do ye through la him it to recite to them the revelation that he received
way he was a key him to purify them
while you while the moon will get up and teach them the book, while hikmah and teach them the wisdom of whatever is ordered in the book
for things and then allows random data
to reinforce this whole message. I lost my data set. When God Roman covelo Luffy early movie, just in case you think you didn't need this, just in case you think that you are okay. Just in just in case you think that this guidance that is coming to you was early, you know, even if it didn't come it was okay. I said no. And I said we're in Gan amin covelo Luffy tala imobie. Were really before this before what before the coming of Rosa Salah.
They were hugely and clearly misguided. Villa Lim mubi majorly misguided.
Right? So Allah is saying here that I've given you a blessing and understand you needed this blessing very badly because you were usually misguided. And if you are usually misguided and you die in that state, you go into the fire.
So this is Nabhi coming to you
was your life West was the safety net, which keeps you from burning safety net which gives you from the fire. And that is what Allah subhanaw taala sent as his mercy and as his blessing.
and that's why I said everything begins with gratitude. So the first and foremost thing we do is the fall in such that and we thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for giving us Muhammad Rasul Allah, he said, Listen, and that is why to love rustlers, and
not just love him, like I love my mother, my father know, to love resources, more than we love anyone, or anything on the face of the earth, anyone or anything, whoever, more than my parents, more than my spouse, more than my children, more than my friends, more than my relatives more than money more than more than wealth, more than health, more than anything, absolutely anything on the face of the earth, including myself, to love homosassa more than all of this is a element. It's a pillar, it's a part it is an intrinsic, required requirement of being a Muslim.
I cannot be a Muslim.
I love Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam more than I love anyone anything else, and this is supported by both the hora and
now, why why masala Moussa some more than others, and that is where they show brandy will come which is that what would you say? What would be your attitude to somebody who saves you from certain death. Say for example, give give. Imagine this supposing you went into a river Meadow crossing a bridge you slipped and fell into rivers a raging torrent, and you are you are dead I mean you are, there's no way that you are going to survive, you're going to die a horrible death, because nothing one of the most painful ways of dying is to die by drowning, you're going to drown.
And at that time somebody leaps into the water and some that that person saves you. It saves you from the sudden death
and a death in a very horrible way.
Would you be grateful to that person? Well that's a dumb question right?
And that person would be your greatest friend you would be enormously grateful to that person if you if that person accepted money if you would give you give anything you have. If that person whatever thing right your whole life you in any way with that person you would say is one or the other. This man saved my life. This is the person who saved my life.
How about how should you feel about somebody who doesn't just save your life in this way?
Or auto saves you from eternal torment? who saved you from eternal punishment?
Death by anything is death, few minutes of pain.
And then it's over.
What about somebody who dies without Islam? What about somebody who dies worshipping idols? What about somebody who dies worshipping anyone other than the only one who's worthy of worship? Which is Allah Subhana? Allah, Allah, Allah, our Creator, our sustainer maintain?
To whom is to whom is our return? What about somebody who dies without acknowledging Allah without thanking Allah without worshipping Allah? And on the on the contrary, this person dies while they were worshipping or are there people who used to worship idols, or there was the worship people or whoever, but they didn't worship Allah subhanaw taala. What when they die, what happens? We know what happens.
Death is not an end to their troubles, death is the beginning of their troubles.
And those troubles never end.
So here we have the raso. Here we have the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, who saves us from that, from this eternal punishment from eternal pain from the eternal suffering, where suffering only increases, it doesn't decrease, and this is forever
and he saves you. How grateful should we be to Him? How grateful should we be to the one who sent him?
This is what I was wanting to say. Analyzing therefore, that you were in serious trouble, you were grossly misguided. And that's the reason why you should be grateful because he's the one who saved you from that misguidance. Now, as I mentioned before, and that's right, data center is a center but these four things, you have to name it.
Let's look at it from the perspective of what was he sent to do and what should be our response to that when these two meet, you will have success in German.
There is a reason I wasn't first asked he was given was recite the ayat that are revealed to you.
And also as I did that, with complete and total integrity, as I mentioned before, in the reflect on the Quran, lectures, now is a solemn even where the iron which was revealed was really an instruction to him and Allah does this say this to so and so? Say this, say this and as soon as you think about that, logically speaking, if I say to you, say this,
say, I will come tomorrow,
what will you say to the person
you will say?
He said, that he will come tomorrow
you will not you will not simply repeat my words say I will come tomorrow
but also as a result did exactly that.
He repeated exactly what he received
call who Allah who I had said He is Allah and he is
he is one and he is one in a way where there is no poor
ad not all white because oh by there is any there is there are two an ad there is no plural for the word I had a call who Allah who had what it was there was a loser did not say Allahu Ahad
which is what he should have said if you frankly if you look at the grammatically that sentence, Allah is saying, say Allah is is one, he would have said Allah is one, because the word say is being said to him as an instruction as a direction is not a word which needs to be coming communicated to the people that he's speaking to. But such was the integrity of the of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Such was enormous integrity. Such was the way in which he received the Quran the truthful way and the truthful way in which he transmitted, that he transmitted it exactly as he received it.
Hold on Allah, Allah said, the results are observed although Allahu Akbar.
So here we have the first instruction that he was given your to do elohiym it, recite to them the ayat which have been revealed to you
He did that completely with total integrity with total truthfulness. What should be our attitude with regard to that, when we receive that
So, he is being told
what must be our, our attitude must be, to listen to hear as clearly as we can to listen with as much attention as we can listen.
Give it our full attention, not get sidetracked here there, no full attention.
This is the word, the collab, the speech of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
This is as close as we can get to Allah subhanho wa Taala in this life,
we cannot see Allah
in this life. inshallah We ask Allah Subhana data to glad to grant us his
data is aware,
grant us his site, in a way that suits His Majesty and grace insha Allah in general for those when we meet him,
We ask Allah for this inshallah. But in this life, it is not for the human being to see Allah subhanho wa Taala directly.
But it is the mercy of Allah,
that Allah subhanaw taala decided to speak to us. And this speech was conveyed to us through Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa, he also said
that speech came to him in several ways, through the very Salaam, through direct,
have through a direct beaming down of the speech of Allah subhanaw taala. And it was one of the most difficult things in his life to receive why one of the most painful in many cases one of the most difficult things, he was the US the US the stressful thing.
But this is the nature of,
of something of great value, which is that it doesn't come easily.
So here is a speech of Allah subhanaw taala which is being given to us and this is itself. One huge blessing is the messenger Allah is Allah. The other huge blessing is his message. And the two are linked the two are completely intrinsic, the two are intertwined.
A lot of us could have sent the Quran in a written form as a book.
And the message is also am Caribbean's given the instruction hand them this book.
It is not how he did it.
And don't get stuck by saying well you know those days there was no printing press. We are talking about the Creator of the heavens and the earth we are talking about the one who created the entire universe.
If Allah wanted to do something, he would have done it.
Allah subhanho wa Taala sent his kalaam to his heavy Muhammad Rasul Allah is Allah is Allah to his beloved.
And he said to him, yet through Allah him, you recite,
this is my speech, but you reside by speech,
my speech will be communicated to the world, the very first time that the creatures of Allah will listen to the speech of Allah, it will be in the voice of Muhammad Rasul Allah sallallahu alayhi wa ala he was mbu said,
think about this, get your mind around,
try to understand this, try to understand who Hama sallallahu Sallam is.
He will spend your whole life doing that.
And that will be a life well spent.
sound of the Quran
that the world heard
was in the voice of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa he was able to sell.
This is what I'm like he was my brothers and sisters. Think about that. What a beautiful blessing yet.
So what must we do? our attitude must be an attitude of reception.
Today, many of us may Allah May Allah bless these people and give them guidance and
They want to do a good thing. But the way they do it is where the they lose the significance of what they're doing.
The good thing they will do is that instead of listening to just listen, just think about my words, instead of listening to songs and you know, pop music and this and that, they put on a tape of the corner, and there is a curry reciting. So this is background music.
And they're driving their cars, or they're working in the homes or something. Background music.
I think it was the first time photos you're comparing the column of Allah, the recitation of the Quran, With what? With pop music, with film songs.
Instead of that you do this, what kind of things is first and foremost, think about that? I mean, what sort of logic is that?
is that the right attitude towards the corner?
Or you might say, Well, you know, what, if I'm not doing that, and I, why, why have you brought yourself to this? And that's the reason why we need to scatter we're, Why have you brought ourselves to this ridiculous state, where we cannot have silence, where we cannot reflect, when we cannot introspect where we cannot do seeker, ourselves. So Allah subhanaw taala, thinking about someone Allah, and hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah, thinking about hamdulillah Allah Akbar Allah, but thinking about the greatness almost right away, why can't we do that?
Why is the only alternative, some completely nonsensical, mindless rubbish coming out of hollywood, bollywood, Hollywood, God knows where, why?
Who has done this to you?
This is what you've read yourself.
So, first of all, there should be some noise in your life, whatever that noise might be, and you want to substitute one noise with another noise.
So therefore, the Kalam of Allah, the recitation of Quran also is noise for you, you made noise. So these other kinds of noise, nice noise,
everything begins with attitude, an attitude of submission, an attitude of need an attitude of a yearning for something.
And that is why I began this classes series of classes on the scale What are we I think it's very important for us to
will be will inshallah spend a good bit of time on this. Very important for us to think about that.
Very important thing for us to understand about this Canterbury is that
I feel a bit odd. Talking about the scan tarbiyah
in a virtual class session.
This is something that we need to spend time in the company of our chef. And then for anyone who thinks is What do you mean, oh, I don't do this.
I don't consider myself to do your task here. So don't even imagine don't send me an email saying I want to be or you're
married. And I'm allergic to marriage.
But find a chef for yourself, it is important for you find a chef, find a Muslim, find somebody who is capable of doing your task yet.
And has to be somebody who's capable, not just somebody with a beard, and a trouble
has to be someone who is who's capable, who has the knowledge was the who has Wooster skia has already been done. And again, having said that, please understand this is not a station, right, you will get off the train. No.
This is an ongoing thing, which is lifelong, including videos.
Every person needs to have a motor be every person needs to have a Muslim, every person needs to have somebody who can guide him or her and that person has to be in touch with them throughout their lives. No matter how great and significant and glorious you think you are
very important for us to start there. So you have to play by the column of a lot of sources and decided what must we do? treat it with the respect that it deserves. Listen to it attentively. Think about it. Reflect on it.
Note it down, listen to it again and again and again.
Then Allah said we'll use a key and purify them.
Now why is the last vitalising purify them? And why are you saying purify them after saying recite the ad why not purify before
purification by definition is painful. purification takes time.
So before somebody can commit to purification before somebody is doing
willing to give that time before somebody is willing to undergo the within courts, the pain of learning.
And the most painful learning is learning about yourself.
There should be a reason
I need a reason to do this. What is the reason? The reason is the column of Allah.
So when I'm listening to the caliber of Allah, Allah with the attitude that this is Allah spirit, Allah speaking, this is the voice of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
It will Kindler in me
the need and the desire to learn this and to know it, and to do it.
And then I said, What should I do? And that's the point is okay, purify yourself. Use a key. Why purify? Also because think about think about agriculture. What is the most important thing, if you want to grow the best crop is the best seed. Sure. So you got the best seed having gotten the best seed, if you take this best seed and just throw it on the ground, and the ground is not prepared. It's full of thorns and all kinds of pathogens and stones and rocks and everything else. Either the seed is going to get destroyed or even if it germinates, it will not give you any crop, it will probably the damage, germinate and die after a few days.
The preparation of the soil
is the single most important thing that the farmer does.
The preparation of the soil to receive the seed. This is the single most important thing that a farmer does. I have a farmer I brought a tea coffee Cardamom rubber for 10 years of my life.
I've done gardening My whole life including Now I know what I'm talking about without proper soil preparation
without freeing the soil of pathogens without cleaning the soil without checking the pH value of the soil acidity or alkalinity and then correcting for it without ensuring that there is enough organic matter in the soil. without checking to see how much moisture there is in the soil. There's a whole list of things without doing all of this if you plant the seed your seed is destined to be destroyed. No matter how good the seed is.
It has to be planted in soil which is conducive to it which is ready to receive that seed.
That is the power of the scale. That is why the scale So now Allah is saying Zeki purify them. What must we do? Shall hamdulillah obey Allah, Allah? Oh Allah I am Here I am ready I'm ready to answer you. Yasser Allah please purify me.
I am ready to be purified and attitude of submission to Rasul Allah is Allah Salah, an attitude of submission to your teacher, to your chef to your Muslim to your murabbi
for whatever he tells you to do, in order to purify yourself, not only understand, I don't have to say this, that whatever he tells you to do must be in line with the Sharia because if he's telling you to do something which is around then it is your duty to refuse.
Now, I don't think any chef what the name will tell you to do something which is haram if they tell you that that's the wrong person for you. For example, if he tells you now, first go to this particular Durga or this mccobb or this Mahara and make sudo there or you know put a
sheet of flowers there and give one as rather pay some money there and make off of the grip is telling you that then this is not a chef, this is a setter sitting there in the form of someone being and leave that immediately get out of there because this person is inviting you to commit open ship and to seek help from anyone other than last.
So make sure that the share is what being followed.
But once you have decided that then you need to trust and then you need to follow. So at zero submission we use a key when we do that then inshallah Tosca will happen while you only Manuel Kitab. Then Allah said now teach them the book I think about that here is this message being given here is this instruction being given. Teach them the book teach the book to whom people for whom Arabic was their language.
Not only was Arabic their language, but the standard of Arabic of the Sahaba till today is used as the criterion of checking
classical Arabic in the Koran in the understanding of any word or understanding of any phrase if there is a doubt if the man
Modern day scholars, if they have a doubt, then they go back to the understanding of the Sahaba. They said, Can we see? How did the Sahaba understand this word? in their context? What did it mean? They go back to that ref. That's the reference point. So their language knowledge of language was the reference point for all of mankind till the end of time.
So what was there to teach?
Today, we think that we pick up a English translation of the Quran or
some other language translation of the Quran. And we think that we know the Quran, which is we can read it and we say, Oh, this is what Allah is saying, in my opinion, such as there is nothing more disgraceful and nothing more misguiding than somebody who uses the term in my opinion with respect to the government.
Get up and walk out of the class, you have no right being in that class.
You first take a translation of the column of Allah, which is what he was a column called, is a translation. This is the column This is the column of the translator, underlying message, done a good job, I don't doubt that. But I'm saying it is not the word of Allah.
And on top of that, you want to put your own interpretation into that vein by opinion nahata level
this is the this is the problem of approaching the Quran without the scale. That is why you need at a scale
anyone who has the scale anyone who's done any amount of the scale will never do this. This is the work of people who have they don't know that the Tao of the sky they don't have to have the skin.
So approach correct approach purified soul purified heart purified knifes free from itself free from its ego approach.
And now we shall cinema store teach them the book first purify them now teach them they heard it but they don't understand it. They cannot understand they need you
to explain it to them.
Today, we seem to think that we don't need the representation. There's nothing more misguided than somebody who thinks he does not need as
a lesson you need him.
You say you don't need him. So he's Allah right? Are you right?
People, the people who reject her, these two people who call themselves a hero, Cora, law How can you call this Hello Cora and you do something or say something which is against the Quran?
Have mercy on yourself.
Allah subhanho wa Taala seeing where you are lemo multitap Did I say that? But it Allah says
so purify them, and then teach them the book? Yes, they heard it, they don't understand it, you teach it to them while achema now teach them the wisdom of it. Why is Allah saying this? How do I apply what Allah has taught me?
So what must I do when I'm listening? Listen carefully.
That's Yeah, prepare myself and submit myself water skier, take the pain, purify yourself
if you got a whole lot of rust here, it has to be rubbed off and that's painful but without that there's no connection.
Do you see Have you seen an electrician working when he splicing two wires when he's taking this wire which is connected to the after the appliance and he has now to put a plus splices to the splice it to the wire which is bringing the power without that does appliance is dead.
It will never work because it has no power. What does he do? He shaves off the insulation on the wire, all the
rubber or the plastic or whatever the insulating the wire he shaves it off. And then the copper or the wire he sends it.
He was using abrasive. He cleans it because copper gets oxidized copper oxide the green stuff on the copper that's called copper oxide. He takes off this copper oxide until it is shining. And then only he will splice it and current flows.
The same thing with our soul our soul our full and are completely covered with a rust and the dirt and the filth of this dunya
which has to be removed is painful. But without that the power of Allah will not flow through without that the connection with Allah will not be true.
There will always be interference and you got here. You got to understand what's what Allah tala is communicating to us.
We only will get one hikma This is the sigma, the application of that. So for the skier attitude or submission for UI Lolita, the nobody's teaching now what now attention and the learning the learning of the Quran is the application of it approaching the Quran with the code
consciousness of applying it in my life
not academically, not simply saying okay let me learn how to read beautiful Why's this that? Should I read in halfs? Or should I read in wash? Or should I read in some other way? No.
Only one focus. How do I live the Quran? How do I apply it in my life
and that is the hikma which is the way of applying
to give you a quick example before I end which will inshallah stay in your mind. Take the example of Salah Luz Mandela said akima Salah Tallis decree, which arose alongside the desire Allah said, establish the salah for my seeker, that is your through Allah humanity, the Sahaba said, jasola We are ready. What shall we do was a key. Teach them how to make widow how to make apostle how to purify themselves, they purified themselves now what you I live on will kita What is the meaning of Salah? Allah said establish Salah what is Allah? How do I establish Salah?
That is the teaching the really Salah, he teaches
while hikma then he demonstrates it.
Then he demonstrates it.
What do we do? We approach this whole thing with an attitude of submission, an attitude of genuine interest, an attitude of learning, which puts this as the number one priority in our lives.
This is our problem. Our problem is that we discount the importance of Islam. Islam is not number one priority for us. That is the problem. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it the number one priority in our lives. I asked us
to make this series of sessions a means of great blessing for all of us and ask you to make dua for me that allows that enables me to say that which is beneficial for me and you and saves us from that which is not beneficial that Allah should be pleased with us and never be displeased with sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi
wa salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
