00:00:00--> 00:00:12

Hello hello Haman hamdulillah here on the island, or Salatu was Salam ala Shafi lambier even wants to leave. Her mother also relies on Allah Haile he ran early, he was salam to Stephen cathedral.

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

From Allah though my brothers and sisters, they want to ask you ask you one question, what do you believe, as Muslims?

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

What do you believe as Muslims?

00:00:26--> 00:00:28

Why is belief important?

00:00:29--> 00:00:40

Why must we be clear about what we believe, and to believe that voluntarily, consciously and totally without doubts, and then to act on that belief,

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

you must do that, because that is the way we enter Islam

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

and remain in Islam.

00:00:49--> 00:00:50

To become Muslim,

00:00:52--> 00:00:54

something has to change in our hearts.

00:00:55--> 00:01:08

And that something is what we believe in, we need to be convinced that that belief is correct. And then we need to accept that belief. And then we need to live by that belief.

00:01:09--> 00:01:25

That is why there is no conversion by the sword or the stick or the computer mouse. So anything, conversion is that of the heart. And that happens only and only when somebody truly changes their belief.

00:01:26--> 00:01:36

Whether it is somebody converting to Islam, or Christianity or anything else, or somebody, you know, converting from one political party driver, at the end of the day,

00:01:37--> 00:01:41

that conversion is an act of the heart.

00:01:42--> 00:01:49

That is where it happens. And that always, always, always can only happen voluntarily.

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

A person changes when they want to change.

00:01:54--> 00:01:55

Nobody can force them.

00:01:57--> 00:01:59

I'm saying that because

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

this is the way we enter Islam. And this is what we need to do to remain Islam.

00:02:08--> 00:02:15

To change whatever our belief is in our hearts, to what Islam considers to be the correct belief.

00:02:16--> 00:02:23

Islam is not the name of our tribe, or a nation or race or a country. It is not about ethnicity or color.

00:02:24--> 00:02:41

Islam is the name of a belief or a set of beliefs, whoever believes in them, and acts upon them is a Muslim. Islam Devil is the name of a practice, the practice of whatever Islam decrees and stands for.

00:02:43--> 00:02:47

That is why it is critical to learn what those beliefs are.

00:02:49--> 00:03:03

To think about them, to reflect on them to genuinely accept them in our hearts, and to and then to make those beliefs the sole criteria for all our decision making and action going forward.

00:03:04--> 00:03:07

Because the one who practice Islam is a Muslim,

00:03:08--> 00:03:10

not just someone who knows about Islam,

00:03:11--> 00:03:20

that incidentally is the difference between an Islamic scholar and a Muslim scholar. Both know about Islam, one practices it the other one just knows.

00:03:21--> 00:03:23

Islam resides in the heart

00:03:25--> 00:03:40

and must be visible in all that we say and do. That is why Allah subhanaw taala said in Surah 200. In number McMinnville and Alladhina amanu will be Lehi. What are Sunni he from alum your thumb?

00:03:42--> 00:04:03

Which I had to be unveiling him one fuzzy invisibility Allah hula Iike homos saw the home Allah gave a certificate a stamp of authenticity. And that's around it that I said only those people, only those are the believers. Only those people are the believers

00:04:04--> 00:04:12

who believed in Allah and His Messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam, and afterwards do not doubt

00:04:15--> 00:04:24

but strive with their wealth and their lives for the cause of Allah subhanaw taala those indeed those they are the truthful

00:04:28--> 00:04:30

will agar Masada who

00:04:31--> 00:04:44

Islamic is the name of action for action to be accepted? It must begin with the correct intention and must remain on that intention until the end.

00:04:46--> 00:04:47

So what do we believe?

00:04:50--> 00:04:51

We believe

00:04:52--> 00:04:58

Armando belay Amara Ecole de Makoto be Barroso Lee

00:05:01--> 00:05:02

Well Your will actually

00:05:03--> 00:05:04

McAdory he

00:05:05--> 00:05:10

said he was Shall we in a lie Darla Barcia burden mode

00:05:12--> 00:05:16

in Arabic, seven articles of faith we call this

00:05:17--> 00:05:37

I believe in Allah and His angels and his books and his messengers, and the Last Day, the day of judgment and I believe in destiny, that both the good and the evil of it is almost there. And I believe in resurrection after death seven

00:05:39--> 00:05:43

the seven we call them the seven articles of belief of it.

00:05:46--> 00:05:47

Let me begin

00:05:49--> 00:05:50

with

00:05:51--> 00:05:55

a making a statement which is a

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

which is a foundational statement and that is taken from the

00:06:07--> 00:06:13

opening ayat of surah baqarah when Allah subhanaw taala said Daddy Kalki tabula rasa fi

00:06:14--> 00:06:22

who the limit again and then it describes who are those Olivia Valentina, you mean ONA, beloved,

00:06:23--> 00:06:58

and that's around and I said, this is the book in which there is no doubt and it is a book of guidance for people who are multiple people who are concerned about Allah subhanaw taala at the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala who fear the displeasure of Allah. Taqwa is not fear of Allah. It is fear of displeasing the one we love the most. So fear of displeasing Allah subhanaw taala that people with that and may Allah make us among them are Moutoku and Allah Subhana Allah says these are the people who believe in Allah right?

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

What is the Albay? A wave is often translated as the unseen.

00:07:08--> 00:07:26

But the unseen is not. This can't be alright. Because what is unseen today can become seen tomorrow. What was unseen yesterday is no longer unseen today. For example, take the ayat of the Quran, on embryology and just taking one,

00:07:28--> 00:07:33

Allah subhanaw taala describe the whole process of the development of the human fetus

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

in great detail in the Quran,

00:07:37--> 00:07:47

very concise, but detail and an absolute correct order. This idea that these that were revealed in the seventh century,

00:07:48--> 00:07:50

but it's only

00:07:52--> 00:08:03

when the diagnostic instruments were invented, that this process could actually be visible to people who are wanting to see.

00:08:06--> 00:08:10

And that was in the late 19th or 20th centuries.

00:08:12--> 00:08:16

So for almost 30 100 years.

00:08:19--> 00:08:20

This was unseen.

00:08:21--> 00:08:30

But Is that why you thought about it. Similarly, today, we have things that we are that we don't see, but they're not live.

00:08:32--> 00:08:36

Even as we live, there are many things we don't see, for example, you don't see the process by which

00:08:38--> 00:08:39

this

00:08:40--> 00:08:42

picture and sound or mine

00:08:43--> 00:08:47

is converted into a form that can be transmitted

00:08:49--> 00:09:01

across 1000s of miles across the world. And somebody sitting in Beijing, or somebody's sitting in Hong Kong or something is watching or can watch this video.

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

And if I'm doing live streaming, this is not live stream. But if I were doing like live streaming, they would actually see me live.

00:09:12--> 00:09:45

But we do not see that whole process how that happens. Is that right? It's not alive. So I'm translating it is unseen is wrong. And why is the unperceivable Not even the unperceived it is the unperceivable it is something which is not only not perceivable in any shape or form now, but it is not, but it cannot but it can never become perceivable in any shape or form. As long as Earth is there as long as we are as long as you wouldn't be driven on this earth.

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

That is an array. So an array is for example, the Accra the hereafter, what happens in Milan bazaar what happens in our graves, what will happen on the day of judgment and so on and so forth. And also all the

00:10:00--> 00:10:31

Eat things of different kinds that Allah subhanaw taala told us in the Quran, also Allah. So Selim told us as a result of what Allah subhanaw taala inspiring others. So please understand this, we believe in Allah right now, why is this important? Why am I saying this too, because there will be some things in this lecture on theta on our fundamental beliefs that may lead you to ask a question of saying, but why is that? Or how is that?

00:10:32--> 00:10:55

Because we believe in that way, we also believe that, whatever Allah subhanaw taala told us, he is speaking from his superior knowledge, there is not even a comparison between his knowledge and our knowledge. And therefore, we believe in whatever Allah subhanaw taala told us, as he told us, without asking why and how, because we are not capable of understanding why and how.

00:10:56--> 00:11:13

So, a lot of annual data, for example, said all of us it was all the pieces that the FISA dilla yummy food must have Anna Lush. Allah said, Allah has created the heavens and the earth in six periods in six days. And then he made estaba on his ash on install.

00:11:14--> 00:11:40

Now, if you ask, why is that? Or if you ask, how is that what is the nature of this server? Nobody can answer this question. And so therefore, when we talk about the idea that we do not ask these two questions, we don't ask why we don't ask how. Now you might say, well, you know, isn't this blind believe it is not blind believe it is believe, with understanding who Allah is, and with understanding who we are. So it is believed that comes with,

00:11:41--> 00:11:51

with humility, about who we are, and with the glory and majesty of Allah subhanaw taala in our hearts, because we know who Allah subhanaw taala is.

00:11:53--> 00:12:00

Final point, we believe in the seven things, the seven articles of faith which I mentioned to you,

00:12:01--> 00:12:11

it's important to understand that the that it is essential to believe in all of them simultaneously, totally 100%.

00:12:13--> 00:12:21

Without any change in the degree of belief between one and the other. For example, you say, well, that Allah subhanaw taala, I believe in Allah 100%.

00:12:22--> 00:12:26

But how about angels? Well, I'm not so sure.

00:12:28--> 00:12:42

I don't want to believe in the angels. I don't believe in the angels. If you say that, then as far as Islam is concerned, you are not in Islam. If you do not believe in the angels, you're not in Islam, because it is one of the articles of faith, it is essential to believe in all of them

00:12:43--> 00:12:49

simultaneously, and together and to the same level of intensity which is 100%.

00:12:51--> 00:13:30

I want to begin with the most important principle in Islam, which is the principle of justice is justice is the cause the result of which is peace. Many times we translate these images Islam means peace. Islam doesn't mean peace. Islam means submission. submission to the law of Allah subhanaw taala. Islam does not mean peace, it means submission. The result of the submission is peace. Now submission to what submission to justice because Allah subhanaw taala is an idea he's the one who who does others who does who is always just so when we submit ourselves to the justice of Allah subhanaw taala the result is peace all around the world.

00:13:31--> 00:13:47

And that is the root word for Islam, which is submission dollars valid, there is a peace and security and safety and freedom for everyone that begins with submission dollars manual data, and the foundation of that submission is a docket.

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

Now, that begins with

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

we come to

00:13:56--> 00:14:00

the first article faith which is believe in Allah subhanaw taala.

00:14:01--> 00:14:16

We know and believe that Allah subhanaw taala is alone unique without partners or helpers or associates or family or sons or fathers or parents or progeny are equals. This is the basis of the hit.

00:14:18--> 00:14:33

See how Allah subhanaw taala introduced himself in the Quran Allah said Kulu Allahu Ahad Allah did not say hola hola Hawaii in the Arabic language why it also means one I had also been one but why it has a plural is right to haha there's no pool.

00:14:35--> 00:14:38

So Allah is not just one Allah is unique, alone.

00:14:40--> 00:14:42

No partners, no equals.

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

He does not need anybody's help.

00:14:46--> 00:15:00

He does not need anyone in any shape or form in any way whatsoever. He never needed. He does not need he will never need. This is our belief. That is the basis of theory that's a basis of justice to get

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

Every one what is the new beginning with our Creator? Allah subhanaw taala general worship is due only to him and to worship only Him and nothing else is the essence of Islam. And that is the doorway to enter Islam. It is a doorway to jungle. That is why the Kalama shahada begins with the Nuffield begins with denied la isla Aha, there is no one worthy of worship. The ILA there is nobody worthy of worship in law Allah, except Allah.

00:15:36--> 00:15:56

It begins with worship, to worship Allah subhanho There are truly as is his right, we must first deny and remove everything else from our hearts from our lives from our decisions from our reasons, and replace them with Allah subhanho data alone.

00:15:58--> 00:16:21

This is the foundation and fundamental principle of Islam. We c'est la ilaha illa Allah, there is no one worthy of worship except Allah. La Yun wala YOLO il Allah, nobody can harm and nobody can. Nobody can help and nobody can harm except Allah. La hawla wala Quwata illa Allah,

00:16:22--> 00:16:28

there is no will there is no ability, there is no talent, there is no power.

00:16:29--> 00:16:33

There is no power except ALLAH, except with Allah.

00:16:35--> 00:16:40

We know and believe that Allah subhanaw taala created everything that exists. All that we know and all that we do not know

00:16:42--> 00:16:56

that he Jalla Jalla, who is its creator, sustainer projector provider of all that they need. All that the patient needs. And to him is the return of all humans and origins and whoever he decreed.

00:16:57--> 00:17:25

We know and believe that Allah subhanaw taala didn't just create a leaf, but that he is constantly that he constantly creates, he sustains your projects and is interested in his creation. We know and believe that Allah subhanaw taala is not like anything increase laser cut with the shaman. What was Samuel was He himself said he is unlike anything in creation and he is the one who sees here all MCs all

00:17:26--> 00:17:33

we know and believe that we cannot compare Allah subhanaw taala to any creative being or thing in any shape or form.

00:17:34--> 00:17:45

We know and believe that Allah subhanaw taala does not resemble anything in creation, and has none of the qualities, the strengths, the weaknesses, the temperament

00:17:46--> 00:17:49

of anything in creation.

00:17:52--> 00:18:02

For example, we do not believe that Allah subhanaw taala created the heavens and the earth in six days on the seventh day he rested because he was tired, no, let us not get tired.

00:18:04--> 00:18:11

That the whole the whole scenario? Well I know Allah subhanaw taala does not feel sleepy, Allah does not feel drowsy, Allah does not feel tired.

00:18:13--> 00:18:15

None of our human and other

00:18:18--> 00:18:20

traits apply to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:18:24--> 00:18:37

We also believe that nothing in creation resembles Allah in any shape, quality or form, though we may see reflections of some of the attributes of Allah subhanaw taala and its creation like his mercy which every mother shows towards her children.

00:18:38--> 00:18:43

But we do not give divine qualities to anyone in creation. We don't do not believe for example, that

00:18:45--> 00:18:57

any human being or can can be simultaneously in many, many places, that any human being is aware of knowledge that is really only with Allah subhanaw taala and so on and so forth.

00:19:00--> 00:19:09

So even though you might see mercy in the way a mother treats her children, that mercy is like nothing is nothing like the mercy that belongs only to us rather that

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

we know and believe that Allah subhanaw taala is on his ash on his throne and is aware of everyone everything, every thought, every intention, every word, every action, even before the one who said it or did it was aware of it. We know and believe that Allah subhanho wa Taala is aware of every leaf that falls the number of snowflakes and raindrops, the exact volume of the oceans, the weight of the mountains, we know that we know and believe that Allah subhanaw taala knows every living being personally individually, every human being every gene, every angel, every animal, bird, reptile, amphibian bacteria, virus, all that we know and all that we don't know. And all that exists

00:19:51--> 00:19:57

on this planet and anywhere else in the universe that Allah subhanaw taala created Allah subhanaw taala knows it.

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

There is the beautiful dua

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

The Bedouin

00:20:01--> 00:20:03

with describes this belief

00:20:06--> 00:20:11

we know this from the beautiful hadith of Satan and has been Marika Vilano

00:20:12--> 00:20:13

he reported

00:20:14--> 00:20:20

that Rasul Allah is Allah Salam once passed by a Bedouin, who was making this following dryness Allah

and this is in

00:21:37--> 00:21:37

Torani

00:21:39--> 00:21:48

which means all the one whom eyes cannot see who cannot be imagined, who is beyond description.

00:21:50--> 00:21:55

Who is unaffected by happenings? Who cannot be overwhelmed?

00:22:01--> 00:22:06

Who cannot be overwhelmed by the twists and turns of time of happenings.

00:22:07--> 00:22:16

Who knows the weight of the mountains, the volume of the oceans, the number of falling raindrops,

00:22:17--> 00:22:20

the number of leaves on the trees

00:22:21--> 00:22:24

and everything about which night darkens

00:22:25--> 00:22:40

and upon which the day brightens. No sky can hide another from him. No surface of the Earth can hide another from him. No ocean can hide anything within its depths from him.

00:22:42--> 00:22:58

And no mountain can conceal from him anything within its rocks. Make the last part of my life the best. Make the best of my deeds the last and make my best day be the one in which I need you.

00:22:59--> 00:22:59

I mean,

00:23:01--> 00:23:06

that's all as I said that appointed someone to bring the medicine to him as soon as he completed his salah.

00:23:08--> 00:23:13

Rasulillah is also had been given some gold from a certain mine and when the Bedouin came before him,

00:23:14--> 00:23:15

as well as an asylum.

00:23:17--> 00:23:29

Give him the gold and asked him which tribe you belong to. The man said that he was from the bhanwar vinyasa. So Elijah Salem then asked him, Do you know why I gave you this goat?

00:23:31--> 00:23:37

The man said, because of the family days between us jasola Susannah, because the two tribes were related.

00:23:39--> 00:23:49

That's all as a result of replied he said while family ties have a right. I gave you the word because of the beautiful manner in which you praised Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:23:53--> 00:23:56

Islam is the name of a connection.

00:23:57--> 00:24:00

Islam is the name of a relationship.

00:24:02--> 00:24:07

It's not the name of just a theory or a concept or theology or try words.

00:24:08--> 00:24:10

It's something which touches the heart.

00:24:12--> 00:24:22

We know and believe that Allah subhanaw taala is the creator not only of things, but of all the fundamental laws that govern the creation of all conditions causes the effects of time.

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

He is the owner of time he is the creator of time, and that everything is in his control.

00:24:32--> 00:24:44

He didn't just create a limit. He is in total control and can do whatever he wants. We know and believe that Allah subhanaw taala is not subject to his own laws. And that is how he sometimes did things

00:24:45--> 00:24:50

outside his laws to show his power and his his ability.

00:24:51--> 00:24:55

And that is how we created Adam Alayhis Salam and how are they set up

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

and easily set up, but he does not resemble any of them.

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

He created other monies Salaam in the image of an adult human being.

00:25:05--> 00:25:09

So when they say that He created Adam in his own image,

00:25:10--> 00:25:17

that is true. He created Adam in his own meaning in the image of Adam Elisa

00:25:20--> 00:25:35

created Adams Alayhis Salam wife, Holly salam from Adam Alayhis Salam xdrip. As a full grown woman, you created Adam Alayhis Salam as an adult who will be otherwise Salam, for example, was never

00:25:37--> 00:25:46

an infant or a toddler or a teenager he was a fool when he opened his eyes he was a full grown man. Similarly, while a salon when she opened her eyes, she was a full one.

00:25:47--> 00:25:49

And she came from the rib of other Melissa,

00:25:51--> 00:25:55

who was the father of other Melissa, who was the mother father monitor

00:25:56--> 00:25:57

who was the

00:25:58--> 00:26:00

father and mother of of Hava acela.

00:26:02--> 00:26:11

Similarly, Allah subhanaw taala calls is Ali salaam to be born, to be born without any man having touched his mother, Maria Malaysia, who was sinless.

00:26:15--> 00:26:20

All of these are indicators of the power and glory and majesty of Allah.

00:26:23--> 00:27:03

To join partners with Allah subhanaw taala in his worship, in His Lordship, or his attributes, takes one out of Islam, to ask right to Allah subhanho wa Taala human qualities or to ask crab to humans, or any creature, Sun Moon is that celestial bodies wotnot divine qualities that belong only to Allah subhanaw taala takes one out of Islam. Our pledge with Allah subhanaw taala which we may get every Ricardo every Salah is Eoghan Agudo. We are going to say, for Allah you alone, we worship and You alone, we ask for help. This is the essence of Islam.

00:27:04--> 00:27:21

This is what you're gonna do, we're gonna stand describe the fundamental relationship between the app there is love between the slave and is created between us and Allah subhanaw taala. Therefore, to summarize the fundamental principle of theory, though, he is

00:27:24--> 00:27:25

the belief

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

in the singularity of Allah subhanaw taala generally the level,

00:27:33--> 00:27:35

which is not shared by anything increase,

00:27:36--> 00:28:00

that already itself is one but for the sake of teaching we divided into three parts, we call this double door hidden although here, though he do remove it, and though he espoused the fact, the door hidden Oh, here, the door he'd have, worship or believe, is to believe that there is no one worthy of worship, but Allah and to worship Allah and none other.

00:28:01--> 00:28:19

Dory, the robot is to believe that there is nobody who can fulfill any need or help or harm or has any power or resources or treasures other than Allah subhanaw taala and therefore, to seek help only from Allah subhanho wa taala, and not from anything in Greece.

00:28:20--> 00:28:36

To ask favors from the dead, for example, to ask them to make dua for you, and so on. All of these beliefs are major shifts. If you say that if you do that, believing that to be true, then you have left Islam,

00:28:37--> 00:28:54

though, as well as Eva is to believe that Allah subhanaw taala is unique in all His attributes, and that he does not resemble anything in creation, and that nothing in creation resembles him in any way or form. All anthropomorphism.

00:28:57--> 00:29:07

As scribing qualities Allah subhanaw taala has qualities to creatures and vice versa ascribing creature quantity qualities to Allah subhanaw taala

00:29:09--> 00:29:26

is mentorship and takes one out of Islam. For example, belief in Feng Shui and Vastu and astrology and tarot cards and divining arrows are all such things. This belief is basic and takes one out of Islam. shirk

00:29:28--> 00:29:37

is meaning joining partners to share is to go contrary to any of the above and just ask right partners to Allah subhanaw taala in any aspects of the heat,

00:29:38--> 00:29:46

whether he will be here or will be at or COVID as well see, but shake is the worst of all sins and takes one out of his lab

00:29:48--> 00:29:58

and sort of talk about a lot about today in sort of logMAR algebra data set in a Shilka. The zalben Azeem very Schilke is the worst oppression

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

All oppression is bad. And sugar is the worst way

00:30:04--> 00:30:39

to deny any of these things which I mentioned before, they will all hear of Allah, the removal of Allah and the uniqueness of the smell Serato Allah subhanaw taala is to deny that to join partnership to deny that discover it is denial, it is hiding the truth and also takes one out of Islam. So atheism, agnosticism vague belief in some universe which is in control and universal consciousness and so on. All of these are Cofer

00:30:41--> 00:30:46

as they deny Allah subhanaw taala and his role in our lives

00:30:47--> 00:30:49

to joke or mark

00:30:50--> 00:30:53

to joke about or mark Allah subhanaw taala

00:30:54--> 00:31:05

and or Rasul Allah is Allah Salla, or any of the promises of Allah subhanaw taala is Cofer if done deliberately, and takes one out of Islam? If it is

00:31:06--> 00:31:10

not done deliberately, then you must ask yourself why you're doing it anyway.

00:31:11--> 00:31:15

Now, what is the way back? What is the route

00:31:16--> 00:31:58

to return to Allah subhanaw taala and that is the Minister for repentance. If we realize that we have committed any Shere Khan cover, it is essential to repent and to return to Allah subhanaw taala. Allah's rather than a promise to forgive all sins, including silicon gopher for anyone who repents. However, if one dies in a state of sheer cargo, having denied Allah subhanaw taala, or having joint partners with him and not having repented, then there is no forgiveness for that person. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned is in Nevada, and very clearly in several places where he said Allah will not forgive somebody who has committed a share, but he may forgive everything else.

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

So it's very important for us to understand it now. One question which is usually asked is, is our soul or vasila recognized and permitted in Islam?

00:32:11--> 00:32:36

Now, what is docile, docile are Vasila is to find a means to get close to someone powerful, to whom we do not have access, right? You want to go meet the king, you want to go meet the president, prime minister, what not, you can't just walk into the, into their office or into their home. So you have to find somebody who can give you access. And that process is called vasila. And to do that action is called also.

00:32:37--> 00:32:52

Now that person is recognized and permitted in Islam, and is voluntary and discretionary, meaning you don't have to do it. But if you do it, according to the prescribed conditions, let me make this very clear. Islam

00:32:53--> 00:33:09

permits everything within boundaries. If you exceed the boundary, if you break the boundary, then you are lost. So in Islam, everything is permitted within bounds. So also Mozilla is permitted within boundaries, and we'll come to that in a minute.

00:33:10--> 00:33:11

So,

00:33:12--> 00:33:18

but I mentioned the first and foremost, is it essential it is critical, I must make some vasila? No.

00:33:20--> 00:33:31

I can do if I want to do that. But do I have direct access to Allah? Yes. I'm not giving you the access. I will tell you Allah subhanaw taala gave me the access.

00:33:33--> 00:33:44

So let's see what Allah subhanaw taala said about asking him did he tell us to seek vasila or can we go directly to it? Allah subhanaw taala told us very clearly so referred

00:33:45--> 00:34:10

lokala rombo Bodoni as study of local, although only a study bloco in Allah Xena you're stuck Baroda and nearby the T car the whole owner Johanna muda theory. Allah subhanaw taala said which means and your Rob said, invoke me call me ask me for anything and I will respond to your invocation I will respond to your DUA May God give me I will give you asked me I will give you

00:34:11--> 00:34:43

Verily those who scorned by worship they will surely enter Jannah in humiliation. So the first principle to understand is that we have a direct connection with Allah and we can ask him directly for whatever we need without involving anyone else. Anyone doing that is do is acting according to the Hong Kong of Allah subhanho wa Taala he said oh the Oni and this is a hammer is a Hong Kong. Allah did not say do it if you like he said no do it. I will answer you as DG bloco.

00:34:47--> 00:35:00

Interesting to also note and remember that Allah subhanaw taala did not set set any limits Allah did not say asked me within these boundaries asked me only for this or not for that. He didn't he didn't specify a time he did

00:35:00--> 00:35:32

He asked me from this time but this time asked me in the morning night No, he did not specify a place he didn't say asked me only the masjid or in the car or in the aramas No, he didn't say speak to me only in Arabic or English or Chinese, or anything else Allah did not set any limits, no limits of time or time or place or what to ask or languages to speak in, or anything else. This is what distinguishes Islam from all other religions, the direct connection of the Abdullah Arab as declared by Allah subhanaw taala himself.

00:35:34--> 00:35:48

Now, despite this, if you still want to make Masirah there are three permissible ways number one, ask Allah subhanaw taala by his beautiful names and attributes, unless rather than as Edward De Lisle as Mousa father all we had

00:35:51--> 00:36:00

was our own Latina EULA Hedorah fee as ma e. So huge zone um, icon Yama, Lord, Allah says all the beautiful names

00:36:01--> 00:36:42

we know Allah Swatara told us what 99 of them some in the Quran something that is, it is not restricted tonight tonight. We do not know how many beautiful names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala there are he told us about 99 of them. So all the most beautiful names belong to Allah subhanaw taala please understand is the widow we have not been given the authority to give names to Allah subhanaw taala No, we believe in whatever names he has, which he told us and we believe that there are more that he did not tell us. That's it. But I can't say hola I'm going to call you by this name No, this is haram this is if you do that this is something which is private. So please

00:36:42--> 00:36:43

don't get into that that

00:36:45--> 00:36:45

frame of mind.

00:36:47--> 00:37:08

So that says look around at all the most beautiful names belong to Allah so call on Him by those names and leave the company of those who deny belay, His names they will be recruited, they will be given the reward for what they used to do. So therefore, I want to ask Allah subhanaw taala for respect for sustenance, ser Azhar for the record coverted Mateen

00:37:11--> 00:37:15

Oh ye provider who provides by His power

00:37:16--> 00:37:17

Give me it as

00:37:19--> 00:37:23

if I'm sick. I see ya Shafi cured me

00:37:25--> 00:37:32

if I am repenting for sins Jay Z alpha yah, yah yah Rahim.

00:37:34--> 00:38:06

Forgive me. So, we call upon Allah subhanaw taala by his glorious names and attributes, and this is one form of vasila giving Allah subhanaw taala there was ILA of his own names and attributes. Second one is to seek Wartsila by doing good deeds only for the sake of Allah Subhan Allah Allah said yeah you Alina Avenue taco Allah what would the WHO la Hill was Isla wa he hoo visa vie de la I love them to have their own hola Jen Oh, you will believe

00:38:08--> 00:38:09

it the hola

00:38:11--> 00:38:15

do your duty for Allah and fear his displeasure.

00:38:17--> 00:38:27

Do your do your duty have Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala. And then seek the means that was ALLAH to approach him and strive hard in his cause as much as you can, so that you may be successful

00:38:28--> 00:39:17

to what is this means of approaching Him is our own actions, which is what the eye to see. Now, some people change this and this is seeing the seek the means is different from striving his path, while the eye is clear, there is no need to ask why meanings and so on and so forth to it. So the one way of seeking Vasila is to do actions only to please Allah subhanaw taala. And to make sure that this is secret between Allah subhanaw taala and you it's very important to keep our deeds free of ARIA of showing off and have total sincerity Allah colossal Nia in all that we say and do, and do that only for the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala two very important things to do, are to keep the deed

00:39:17--> 00:39:32

secret between you and Allah. And not to publicize it. But even have a desire that it should be noticed and recognized. And not to seek any material reward for that deed, no money or faith.

00:39:34--> 00:39:52

Don't seek it. I mean, somebody come that gives it to you is different, but don't seek it. Don't Don't ask for it. Don't seek it. Don't even have that desire in your heart. Do the deeds secretly knowing that Allah subhanaw taala knows everything and then keep it for the time when you need to ask Allah subhanaw taala for something that you truly need.

00:39:54--> 00:39:59

Right if you give it secret will reward you they won't even know who did it. That's the best thing to do.

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

And then at that time,

00:40:03--> 00:40:07

make that deed your Mozilla, ask Allah subhanaw taala

00:40:08--> 00:40:09

to help you

00:40:11--> 00:40:13

because of the deed that you did.

00:40:15--> 00:40:51

This is the very important thing to do, in terms of Basilan, with our own ama our own actions, we have the story of the three men who are trapped in a cave and made dua using their secret deeds with Allah. And Allah subhanaw taala moved their massive rock that was blocking the cable. And this is from the stories of our lives and resources of dollars people in the past, and as far as that's concerned, we believe the story to be true. And therefore, this is a the lead of seeking vasila using our deeds. The third one is to ask someone alive,

00:40:52--> 00:40:58

who you consider to be more pious to make dua for you.

00:40:59--> 00:41:06

Right somebody who is alive the kid keep eating elderly. As evidence we have the story of our Casa de la know

00:41:07--> 00:41:13

when there was a famine in Medina and in Missoula in the Arabian Peninsula, abandoned.

00:41:16--> 00:42:02

We asked a batsman have they been underwater live on their land or the uncle of Louisa Salem? To make dua for rain? When and he the thumb heat of this day he began that by making the answer instead Yeah, Allah, when your messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was among us. Listen to the words. He said, Yeah, Allah. When your messenger SallAllahu sallam was among us, we used to ask him to make dua to you for read. Your message is Elijah LM is no longer among us. So we are asking his uncle to make dua for us. Please accept his dua and Abbas been up there whatever there are no made dua and I was accepted the DUA. Now interesting. A very important thing here to note is that sending our data

00:42:02--> 00:42:05

or the law when all of those present, including Al Abbas

00:42:07--> 00:42:16

knew where the grave oversold as a result of was, say that our Delano after he died, he was buried next to him when he was we knew where the grave was.

00:42:18--> 00:42:37

They didn't go to the grave, and asking them, to sell them to give them bread, or to ask us to celebrate make dua for it, they would have done that. Right? They will learn that when I say that over us ligula no assay that Ambassador arrow to make dua say the numbers on the line who could have told him Look, why are Why are you asking me?

00:42:39--> 00:42:41

Let's go to the grave of the persons.

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

And we'll ask him to mentor like we always did.

00:42:45--> 00:42:51

They did not do that because they understood Islam directly from Mohammed Salah Harrison.

00:42:52--> 00:42:58

So if anyone teaches you and says you can go to a grave as this or that, show them the story and tell them how come

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

the Khalifa, Russia, what does any Xavi

00:43:06--> 00:43:09

said follow me and follow the whole of Russia.

00:43:11--> 00:43:14

So he is one of them. Omar Abdullah

00:43:15--> 00:43:36

How can we is actually different Naga, he didn't go to the grave and ask find me any of us to buy the game or we have the visa asylum and said jasola Give me this give me that. Oh jasola make make make this law for me make that make that dua for me. If the Sahaba who learned the deen directly from a supervisor selama nobody, but nobody exceeds their position in Islam.

00:43:38--> 00:44:04

If they do not do that, whoever else is telling you to do it is wrong. Don't follow them. I don't care who it is. Do not follow them. Stick on three. Because if you go away from the hate, that path leads only to one place, which is Johanna. And as I told you, I began but this whole tassel thing by saying that you need not make any thoughts well at all, because ALLAH SubhanA doesn't only as the developer who asked me I will give you hulless

00:44:06--> 00:44:12

if you make your soul in the wrong way to the wrong place with the wrong person,

00:44:13--> 00:44:35

the chances are that you are going to get caught by Allah subhanho data and you will be questioned. And if he does not forgive you, then you are in trouble. But if you make note also believe me, on the Day of Judgment, Allah is not going to say why come why how is it and why you do not make those who? Why do you not go to this grave or that grave and ask that person in the grave to make dua to me, why did you come to me directly?

00:44:36--> 00:44:47

Allah is not going to ask this question because Allah is the one who said oh, the only SDG bloco everyone sisters, in Islam, there is nothing that supersedes the text.

00:44:49--> 00:44:56

When there is a test before you and there is somebody's opinion, that text supersedes your opinion. This is a fundamental belief of ours.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

And in this case, that text

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

is the Quran itself? There is nothing superior

00:45:05--> 00:45:19

than in textual evidence than the evidence of the Quran. May Allah guide us to do what is permissible? And may Allah subhanaw taala help us to stay away from this now

00:45:23--> 00:45:36

as well as as LM also taught us exactly the same thing. And there is not a single piece where he told anyone to go to his grave after he passed away and ask him for favors, or ask him to make dua.

00:45:39--> 00:45:40

On the contrary,

00:45:43--> 00:46:29

on the contrary, he cursed those who make the graves of their pious places of worship, and expressly wonders I have a against it, he said, Do not make bygrave a place of worship, please understand, though, is worship. Abdullah Al Al Eban a dua Mahali badda, dua is the brain of worship it is worship. And so making dua and a grave asking the person in turn in it for favors his major ship, if you do that with the belief that this person can actually help you then you have exhibited Islam. You can make dua to Allah subhanaw taala asking Allah to forgive that person, but not ask that person for anything. Secondly, Allah subhanaw taala told us very clearly that the one that the

00:46:29--> 00:46:48

people who are dead they cannot hear the living and loss around that as ever in Nicola to smear old motor one to smear also MK dua either one low would we read Allah said so very you Oh Mohamed Salah audio Salam cannot make the dead to hear.

00:46:49--> 00:47:35

Nor can you make the deaf to hear the call when they show their backs turning away. Right very, very clear. If Allah said and he's saying this loses himself, he said so Verily you overhear masala salaam cannot make the dead to hear. Nor can you make the deaf to hear the call when they show their backs turning away, in total fatten the eye is even more clear. Well, my Estherville here Well, I'm what in the law ha used to mirror will be a SHA one MA and be Muslim, your aim Manville COBOL unless they're not alike, not alike are the living and the dead.

00:47:36--> 00:47:46

Verily Allah mix whomever he wills to hear, but you cannot make those who are in their graves to hear

00:47:47--> 00:47:53

from Allah and I love Allah was when it is not for me to do more than inform you.

00:47:55--> 00:47:57

I think can be clearer than this.

00:47:58--> 00:48:35

We cannot make the those who are in the graves hear us when we speak to them alive and give the example of somebody who's born deaf, who we are not audible to even if they're right in front of us. Now there are two questions that are generally asked in this regard. First of all, our first question which is asked is people say what about the Hadith where as soon as salam spoke to the dead in the well, after the Battle of others, we know that the all the booster gear were killed, were thrown into a drywall and the solar system addressed them and he said did you find the promises of by Rob, coming through to you?

00:48:36--> 00:48:59

And so the number of the available came there? And he said yes Allah you are speaking to the dead. How can they hear you? There isn't as an observed ya, they hear me better than you are hearing. This is this is a sad is this true? Absolutely. No doubt about that. What's your answer? Because I just showed you the ayat of the Quran, but I'm not sure either as a tourist or as a sender that you cannot make the debt to hear.

00:49:00--> 00:49:17

So what's the answer? The answer is very simple. This is one of the miracles one of the modules that which was given to the solar cell center, which was specific to him. It happened only to him. It happened only that one time. It is not a delille indeed, to say that we can do the same thing.

00:49:18--> 00:49:37

I'm not surrounded again, cylinder bodies that have sharpened cover of the splitting of the moon, by the will of Allah. Allah made in Asia he made us a sign with his index finger and the moon split and later on joined together. We know this from the Quran Allah subhanaw taala. And so to come Aruna, Allah mentioned this

00:49:39--> 00:49:51

so does it mean that I can go and point my finger and the way my finger at the moon and I can split it? Or you can do that? Musa Lisara we know from the Quran that Allah subhanaw taala to live strike the water

00:49:52--> 00:49:59

and the water split and didn't just read it made 12 different pathways. Can you imagine this fantastic, absolutely amazing scene.

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

The walls of water

00:50:02--> 00:50:06

and the pathways between the water are dry and the money is right crust

00:50:08--> 00:50:43

How many times did that happen? Did every time Musa Islam struck with struck any body of water with a stick did the water split to the module is that the miracles that are given to the to the Gambia to the prophets are to establish the authority of the prophet by showing the power of Allah subhanaw taala which goes contrary to what whatever principle is there at the time. So here was a situation where Allah subhanaw taala gave us well As Salam is special power on a special day at a special time for a special reason.

00:50:44--> 00:50:47

This is not a general rule that applies to be a new

00:50:48--> 00:50:56

second thing is the second question that is usually asked is when we go to the to a cemetery or graveyard we say assalamu alaikum Yeah.

00:50:58--> 00:51:11

So if they cannot hear us why are we saying salaam to them? They will be it wouldn't be very funny if they said while he was salami Abdullah before, right then then you probably have to join them in the cemetery. You die of a heart attack of shock

00:51:13--> 00:51:19

as salaam ah alikoum is dua May peace be upon you. Yeah, no como people who are in the graves.

00:51:21--> 00:51:34

It is a DUA, you're not speaking to them, it's not a conversation, you aren't speaking to them, they're not hearing you, they are not responding to you. Right, you're just saying maybe upon you may have may have been security may be safe.

00:51:35--> 00:51:48

So therefore, to believe that the dead can hear us and do something for us. Either then, or the day of judgment is against the Quran and Hadith. And if you believe that, then you have left Islam the

00:51:49--> 00:52:19

second article of faith is the belief in the melodica the angels that this is one of the parts of the belief that way the unperceivable We believe that the melodica are from the other another life form, that Allah subhanaw taala created from a form of luminous energy, some form of light that are not smarter than and knows best. They have different roles including that they praise Allah subhanaw taala

00:52:21--> 00:52:30

they interact with human beings in ordinary life for example, the various around Broadway toys are sellable. So on many other such incidents, we know that

00:52:32--> 00:52:45

some of the angels have been given the responsibility of carrying on some natural phenomena. The angels differ from other creatures in their attitude. as creatures of virtue, there is no voice in them. In contrast to devils and gents,

00:52:47--> 00:52:48

the angels have no

00:52:49--> 00:52:54

they have no free will. They do whatever they have been ordered to do. They

00:52:55--> 00:53:38

they also protect human beings they record our deeds, and believe in angels therefore is one of the main beliefs of the articles of faith. Allah subhanaw taala said Alhamdulillah he farted in some of it without the JDL Mala Iike de Rousselot Hooli engineer Hatem Massena was Lhasa Wawa, jersey to fill colicky my Asha in Allahu Allah Cooley Jain Kadir, Allah says All Praise and thanks to Allah, the only originator the only Creator of the heavens and the earth, who made the angels messengers with wings to three or four he increases in creation, whatever He wills and Verily Allah subhanaw taala can do all things.

00:53:40--> 00:54:18

And last round that I said about the angels Yeah, you will go and Fusa combinely Canara will go to Hannah's one hija la mala Iike tune the villa zone she dad will lie yeah, super Allah ma Amara home way if I don't I'm a maroon unless I know you believe keep yourself safe from war of from yourselves and your families. A fire the fire of Jahannam whose fuel is men and stones is humans and stones over which are appointed angels, stern and severe.

00:54:20--> 00:54:41

Who do not disobey the commands that they receive from Allah but they do whatever they have been commanded that Allah is right I said we're in LA comme la have Izzy in Kira manga TV in your IRA moving data for a loan in southern and Fatah was one that I said but very over you are appointed angels.

00:54:42--> 00:54:57

were in charge of mankind to watch you to watch you to protect you get up and get even honorable recorders writing down your deeds and they know all that you do. Finally ultramarathon I mentioned the angel that all of us will meet one day

00:54:58--> 00:55:00

and he said call Yatta

Fargo Malakal, Moti lovey woo Kyla Newcomb. Samira Begum Tojo

00:55:05--> 00:55:13

and say the Angel of Death who is set over you will take your souls and then you shall be brought back to your

00:55:15--> 00:55:22

third belief. Article of Faith is the belief in the divine books of Allah subhanho wa Taala geladeira.

00:55:24--> 00:55:32

We know that Allah subhanaw taala sent many books out of which we know the names of the following

00:55:34--> 00:55:52

which is zwar service. So have you Sophia Rahim, Tora injeel and Quran. We believe in the Quran. That it is the actual speech of Allah subhanho data revealed to Muhammad salallahu Alaihe Salam in several ways. It is not a creative thing. It is not a creature.

00:55:53--> 00:56:12

It is the quality of Allah subhanaw taala the kalam the speech of Allah subhanaw taala directly. We believe in all of it as it was revealed. We do not try to explain or philosophize about parts of it that may not be clear to us. We do not deny or contradict even a single letter of it. To do so is to leave Islam.

00:56:14--> 00:56:39

The Quran is recited in Salah and is the primary source of Islamic law. So the Quran its explanation of the Quran is the hadith of Persona Salah salah, and that is the second source of Islamic law. We believe that the Quran is the last revelation and that no other revelation came after it. To claim anything to the contrary is to leave Islam. Allah subhanho data.

00:56:40--> 00:57:28

Della dillon who mentioned the Quran and his genuine love the angelica al Kitab Amin who is to look Amato Hoonah Maliki keytab oclaro Bucha Behat for Amma Levina Fiocco beams even for your time yo nama to Sheva to call I'll fit in it will work with yoga and what would you really well My Allah will diarrhea who illallah wa Rossi Hona filler anemia coluna M and V co lo mein and the Robina for Maya zaccaro Ill Will Alba Alba Allah syringes he Jelena Jelena who, who has sent down to you Bahamas on selling the book, the Quran, in it are ayat that are entirely clear and these are the foundation of the book, I add all

00:57:29--> 00:57:36

the commandments and so on. And there are others, which are not entirely clear, for example, the roof on bukata, the live la meme, ERC

00:57:37--> 00:57:58

graphi inside and so on. So as far as those in whose hearts there is a deviation from the truth, they follow that which is not entirely clear they're off, seeking and Fidra all kinds of mischief and trials and seeking for its hidden meanings. But none knows its hidden meanings except Allah.

00:57:59--> 00:58:05

And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge, they say we believe in it, the whole of it, the clearer and clearer,

00:58:06--> 00:58:16

I add are from Allah or from our and none receive admonition, except men of understanding it's a people who have understanding.

00:58:17--> 00:58:26

So therefore we do not ask how and why we believe whatever Allah subhanaw taala told us, as he told us, because we know who Allah is,

00:58:27--> 00:58:45

Allah surrounded our promise to preserve the Quran. Allah surrounds that as in Nana Hana zoologica. Were in law who have his own, Allah said he verily it is he, it is we who have set down the digger which is the Quran, and surely we will get it from corruption.

00:58:47--> 00:58:53

This promise of the, of the protection for, for of the book of Allah subhanaw taala

00:58:56--> 00:59:12

refers to its words in the Musa and then meanings and explanations and practical demonstrations of how to follow them in the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu, Salah ultramarathoner invited us to reflect on the Quran and carry

00:59:13--> 00:59:39

on lost around a dozen Alfa Brunel Khurana one oh god I mean and the lady lady love to feel the love and cathedra Allah said do they not then consider the Quran carefully had it been from other than Allah mean in the radiola if it had been brought anyone other than Allah, they would surely have found that in many contradictions.

00:59:40--> 00:59:49

The fact that the Quran does not have convictions, is one of the proofs and evidence that the Quran is from Allah subhanahu.

00:59:51--> 00:59:57

Then Allah svarga as a result Muhammad for Allah Tada Baroda Quran Allah polu been a follower

00:59:59--> 01:00:00

and that's it.

01:00:00--> 01:00:05

Do they not then think deeply in the Quran? Or are their hearts locked up from understanding it?

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

Number four,

01:00:10--> 01:00:17

Article of Faith is believed in the messengers. We believe in all the messengers of the Gambia and all the Rousseau.

01:00:18--> 01:01:03

All the prophets and all the messages of Allahu Allah named in the Quran. And who Rasul Allah is on Selim told us about to deny that they were messengers is to leave Islam. We believe that all Allah subhanaw taala and messengers were protected from sin and forgiven any minor transgressions that they may have done. We believe that they are innocent, pure from all evil and came to their people, to guide them to the true path which is Islam. All messengers preached only one faith and that was and Islam. The last and final messenger was Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, who came to confirm the message of all the previous messengers and to declare until the end of time that there is nobody

01:01:03--> 01:01:10

worthy of worship, except Allah subhanho wa Taala and that he Mohamed Salah Salem is his last and final messenger

01:01:12--> 01:02:00

to say that anyone was a messenger or a prophet or a soul or the be after Muhammad Salah is to leave Islam. And as a manager, I mentioned this directly in the Quran. And he called us once and seldom heard them and maybe, he said he is the final messenger is a seal of the prophets I must the seal has been set. The letter is closed, we believe in Bahamas or salah, which means that we OBEY Him and emulate him. Is that and is it diba we love him more than anyone else except Allah subhanho wa Taala and we obey and emulate him because we believe that his way was the best way since he was guided by Allah subhana wa jal, he came to purify us and to teach us the book of Allah and to show us how to

01:02:00--> 01:02:05

live our lives in a way that will make us successful in this world and the next

01:02:08--> 01:02:36

unless around 10, zero Maracana Muhammadan Abba Adam Murray Jellicle wala killed Rasul Allah He Mahato, an OB GYN and Solterra Hazama la said, Mohamed Salah Salem is not the father of any of the men among you, but he is the Rasul of Allah and he is the seal of the Gambia seal of the prophets. Remember, every Rasul is unabIe, but not every Nabhi is also

01:02:38--> 01:02:56

and therefore, Allah said seal of the Gambia haram in the beginning you didn't Jakarta Moroso he's also the head also but unless we unless rather like cut off from the bottom, any thought that anybody can be in abhi also after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

01:02:59--> 01:03:09

about Rosaura salamanders Roger has said many many things I don't have the time to keep this concise and therefore I will just recite for you

01:03:10--> 01:03:14

the few I had about with the Salem witch

01:03:17--> 01:03:56

witch witch the journalist wanted to know told us a lot about Dennis corners for example, so to lallybroch law had been the law while we need is Basa fee him Rasulullah Minh and fusi him yesterday he Marathi he was a key him where you are limo will Kitab and haga when Ghana will call blue, the fee Mali movie. And last round that I said Indeed Allah convert a great favor on the believers. When he sent among them a messenger Muhammad Salah is Allah from among themselves, reciting unto them his ayat, the Quran and purifying them from sins,

01:03:57--> 01:04:15

and instructing them and purifying the hearts internally and so on purifying them internally externally and instructing them teaching them the vocal Quran and the hikma the wisdom of the Sunnah of Rasulullah Selim, while before that they had been in manifest error

01:04:16--> 01:04:41

about Islam himself, Allah subhanaw taala, zero Maya eikonal Hawa in wha wha hoo you have inserted another Allah says, nor does he speak of his own desire or his own volition. It is only the way that is set. That whatever he speaks is inspired to him. It is what He that has been sent to him by Allah subhanaw taala he does not speak of his own desire

01:04:42--> 01:05:00

and then others rather as Aryans or the desire by UT Rasulullah fucka Allah, woman thou Allah wa sallam Celica Ali him Hafeez law. Allah said he obeys the messenger Muhammad Salah Salem has indeed obeyed Allah He obeyed. The Messenger has obeyed Allah because

01:05:00--> 01:05:08

As the messenger tells him what Allah said to him, so he always the messenger Muhammad Salah man indeed obey Allah subhanho data,

01:05:09--> 01:05:18

but he who runs away, then we have not sent you over Hamid Salah Salem as a watcher over them.

01:05:19--> 01:05:37

And then Allah said Oba Takamura Sunova Hulu avana Hagaman Hooven the whole what the whole law in the law Harsha de dulay Cobb Allah subhanho DeRozan whatever. My Messenger vamos a la Selim gives you take it and who and whatever he forgive forbids you from

01:05:40--> 01:05:47

stay away from it, abstain from it, and fear the anger of Allah. Verily, Allah is Severe in punishment.

01:05:49--> 01:06:28

Each of these I need explanations, but I don't have the time for that. Now, inshallah. If Allah permits some of the tech then of course I'm not very intelligent like a gala goofy Rasulullah who's what will Hazara Lehmann Ghana EULA? Well, Yeovil Astra will the Corolla cathedra what must we do with all this? We must follow Missoula is on Salem, and take his example as the best example for us. Allah said Indeed, in the Messenger of Allah, Mohammed, Salah Salem, you have a good example to follow for the one warps in the meeting with Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah subhanho wa Taala a great deal.

01:06:31--> 01:06:33

And then Allah's route that I said,

01:06:35--> 01:07:08

in the love of Allah, he got the whole saloon and the V Yeah, you were living in St. Louis. He was selling with the Sliva Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad Ali Muhammad Kamal Selita labeled him if anybody went Majid Lama vertical, our Hammadi whether you Mohammed Ibrahim, what I learned when I went through them, resetting the truth before translating the ad because this is the hug of that. Allah sent his saliva and Salam is honored the blessing of the Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah and also his angels, asked Allah subhanho wa Taala

01:07:10--> 01:07:46

to forgive him and bless him or you will believe send your Salah send your your DUA your blessings and ask Allah Subhana Allah to bless him Muhammad Salah Salem and you should greet and salute him with these loving salutation which is a saliva illegal. Then Allah subhana data for the one who does all this for the one who follows Rasul Allah He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Allah subhanaw taala set for Incoterm to hairbows Allah vata buni you will be Kula we have to look on Robo Wallah overall Rahim Allah said

01:07:48--> 01:07:49

that

01:07:50--> 01:08:12

say to those who claim to love Allah, to bake by thema to make a diva off masala to emulate him, not just obey Him, emulate him out of love. And if you do that, what will happen? Allah subhanaw taala will love you. And Allah subhanaw taala is most forgiving. Article number five believe in the Day of Judgment.

01:08:14--> 01:08:46

We believe that one day, Allah subhanaw taala will end this earthly existence and that we will be called to him. At an individual level this refers to our personal lifespans. And at a collective level, it refers to the time when Allah subhanaw taala will end this world and we will be gathered before Allah subhanaw taala. To be judged to come to the fifth are the articles of faith. Another one of the fundamental things that we are required to believe in order to be muslims and to remain Muslim and that is the belief in the Day of Judgment.

01:08:48--> 01:09:13

This is perhaps one of the most important and one of the most frequently emphasized and mentioned things in the Quran Al Karim. The last George's ama is full of mentions of the Day of Judgment. Silva and many other sources in the Quran, all through the Quran are full of mention of the Day of Judgment. So obviously it's a day which is so critically important

01:09:14--> 01:09:15

that

01:09:16--> 01:09:25

it is very important for us to know what that is, what does it mean and to have this further and complete and total belief that this day will come to us one day.

01:09:27--> 01:09:58

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this very clearly in sort of the number after mentioning many other things about the day of judgment and loss of 100,000 yo maya Kumar, Rohan Mela, eager to suffer layer the color Mona 11. As you know the whole rock man who call us however, then he call yo Mohawk from Anisha at Taco de la of the HEMA Abba and last minute that has said the day that a row and this is a name of wa sallam is referring to last roundtable referring to him as a row

01:09:59--> 01:09:59

or maybe another day

01:10:00--> 01:10:50

uses Minilite Allah and the angels will stand forth in rows upon rows and none will be able to speak except Him whom Allah subhanaw taala man, the Most Beneficent allows to speak and that person or individual or angel will be will speak what is right what is correct Nakazawa the radical Yamanaka laws, Rotella emphasizes that this is the day of truth for Manchanda, Ihlara, behemoth, Abba, and the one who wishes may make a way towards his rap. This is the mention of the Day of Judgment, as I mentioned to them, many, many, many if I obviously, am not capable of you know, and it's not even part of this lecture for me to find and decide all of them so we will leave it at this.

01:10:53--> 01:11:29

What will happen to people, a large amount of data said, God, we are waiting I'm Ambassador Kadena Hamza Rahman was on the call Musa rune, we will be resurrected on grace, the grace will throw out what is inside them. And the people will come out and they will say Woe to us who has raised us up from our place of sleep, and it will and it will be set to them. This is what Rama Allah subhanho wa Taala the most benefits that Allah had promised, and that is messengers spoke, spoke the truth.

01:11:30--> 01:11:32

We ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to

01:11:34--> 01:12:05

understand and to believe in the day of judgment and to always keep that in our minds, the day when we will be called forth and we will stand before Allah subhanaw taala and we will answer for what we chose to do and what we chose not to do. We ask Allah subhanaw taala not to humiliate us on that day, and to forgive us and to cover us with His mercy and grace. And like he covered us in this dunya and to enter us into Jannah we're very sorry, insha Allah six Article of Faith is belief in just destiny.

01:12:07--> 01:12:46

Yeah, our belief in destiny in Islam is very distinct. We do not believe for example, in the two extreme, we don't believe that there is no destiny that you can do whatever you want self made man self made over all of this is is neither factually correct nor theologically correct. So we don't believe that. The second thing is the other extreme we don't believe also, that we are much more has that we are completely without any choice that we are like robots we have been programmed and we can only do what we what we have been programmed to do. So if a thief is stealing, this is what was written for him and therefore he is doing what was written for him. And what was what he is forced

01:12:46--> 01:12:50

to do compelled to do, if somebody is committing murder that murder he was compelled to this is all

01:12:52--> 01:12:58

against Islamic belief. We do not believe in all this. We believe that we have limited choice.

01:13:00--> 01:13:47

We believe that Allah subhanaw taala knows the Destiny This is the knowledge of Allah, the aim of Allah. He knows the destiny of every person and has written it down in a book and Allah subhanaw taala mentioned that while I'm in that, but in fill out the Illa Allah Allah here is Koha where Allah Most Aqaba, almost Those are called on fee Kitabi mobian. Allah says that there is no moving or living creature anywhere on the earth, but its provision is due from Allah, Allah is the One who provides it. And Allah knows its dwelling place and its deposit where this person will die. And all of this is in a clear book, a local baffles, the book of degree, the protected tablet, different

01:13:47--> 01:14:21

translations. So Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned is that we believe therefore, that whatever happens to us, good or bad is from Allah subhanaw taala. And by his will, we believe that everything that Allah does is always for the good, even though we don't understand that when we see or experience it. So there's no bad in that sense, bad in the sense of how it comes to us. We believe that Allah subhanaw taala knows everything, but he does not compel us to do anything. That's not forcing us. He showed us the way we'll have a now nice day and I love that we are showing you the two paths the two valleys right.

01:14:22--> 01:14:42

Korilakkuma rob the complementary upon human adventure upon your core, say your rub your rub is Huck is the truth. Whoever wants to believe it, I believe it will work to denied him right. So there is there is that the freedom of choosing has been given like Rafi D, there is no compulsion in religion

01:14:43--> 01:14:52

cut away or rush them in LA the two paths of rush of all of guidance and this guidance already has been made clear.

01:14:54--> 01:14:59

So this is very very important to understand that Allah subhanaw taala does not compare

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

He showed us the way

01:15:02--> 01:15:05

he taught us what is good and what is not.

01:15:06--> 01:15:29

The same as which I resented so the Bacara like Rafi Dean you gotta buy an original avion yet for with What do you mean believe these terms that guy we learn what he looks up lumpsum Allah, Allah was I mean I live under the two paths, the path of guidance, the bottom is guidance have been very very clearly demarcated they have been shown they have been made clear.

01:15:30--> 01:15:50

The one who grasps who chooses who denies falsehood, right. The one who denies the DAO or the false idols, the false gods and the false hopes and the false theories, the one who denies all of that, and chooses the truth has grasped a handhold which will never break.

01:15:52--> 01:16:09

And Allah subhana Delhaize Samuel, Olivia is the one who hears and knows everything. Let us grasp this handled and know that this handhold will never break, we hold the rope of Allah subhanaw taala and remember, the other end is held by Allah. So it cannot be cannot go wrong, if we do that.

01:16:11--> 01:16:17

So Allah subhanaw taala showed us he doesn't compel us but He showed us the right way and he showed us what is right what is wrong and he taught us

01:16:19--> 01:16:31

by his books and by his messages through His messengers. What is correct and what is not the choice to follow his hours, they are free to choose but let us understand that every choice has a price tag.

01:16:33--> 01:17:18

Unless rather than I said, there's 100 facade available reverb a hurry, diva cassava at Nasi li uz combat Allah the AMO LA LA home your your evil sins disobedience has appeared on land and sea, because of what the hands of men have earned, what people have done, all the evil and all the trials and tribulations, all the suffering that you see is the result of our own actions is very, this is you know, today so anyone with any intelligence and any education can very clearly see that the problems of the world are because of our own deeds, it is because of our chasing war, because of our

01:17:20--> 01:17:31

trying to dominate other people and other cultures, to power of arms. It is i Does our trying to inflict and force our beliefs and our, our our,

01:17:32--> 01:17:38

you know false beliefs and false ideas upon others. It is because of our economic system,

01:17:39--> 01:17:48

the debt equity system, the interest based system, it is because we have legalized and glorified our own

01:17:50--> 01:18:34

evil desires. These are the reasons these reasons why. How can we ended up in a situation where we have a world where more where eight men have more wealth than 50% of the rest of the world? Is it a resources problem? Or is it a distribution problem? If it's a distribution problem? Is it a logistics problem? Or is it a compassion problem? We need to ask these questions. These are Islam is very, very clear about these things, right? It's not a mystery and magic, this is the reality. And if we if we will want to deny that but up to you or deny that you want to blame God up to you Why blame nothing is going to change. Because what is truth remains the truth. And Allah saying this,

01:18:34--> 01:19:14

this is because of your deeds, which means what is a very empowering statement. Allah is saying if you change your deeds, your future will change, your conditions will change. And it's up to us if you don't want to change that. If you want to continue to burn in the fire of our own creation. Well, that's there for us. Right? But but for those who obey Allah subhanaw taala and follow His messenger Muhammad, Salah Salem, and was one of those in Miami Lasallian means the Korean olsa Well, we're moving on Fernando Haryana, who had on the button, whether that's you know, a Jerome B asset EMA Korea, Manu Allah said, Whoever works righteousness, whoever does righteous deeds, whether male

01:19:14--> 01:19:49

or female, while the person is a believer, now this is where the importance of Akita also comes, it is not only the deed, the deed with the right belief, without let's say very clearly, if you are not a believer, then your your deed will be rewarded in this work, but in the genre, you have nothing. So very, very clear to understand that the big lesson also for us about the importance of understanding what is so Allah says, Whoever works righteousness, whoever does right things order who does righteous deeds, whether male or female, while this person he or she is a true believer,

01:19:50--> 01:19:59

readily to that person. We will give a beautiful life in this world head on over a life of respect and contentment and love and provision and health and wealth and

01:20:00--> 01:20:01

and all kinds of good things.

01:20:02--> 01:20:39

The biggest wealth is contentment, and we shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do man at the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. Inshallah, the meaning of xiety is that on the Day of Judgment when we meet Allah subhanaw taala, we may have done 1000s of good deeds, insha Allah, but there's one which was very, very severe, because by the will of Allah subhanaw taala, Allah will do what has worked for all of those 1000s in accordance with the reward for that one day, even the ones which are substandard, will get rewarded, equal to the highest standard, this is the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa taala, we ask Allah for each other. So there is a

01:20:39--> 01:21:01

there is a payoff for living a virtuous, righteous life. And there is a cost for the opposite. seventh and last article of faith is the belief in resurrection of coming back to life after death, we know and believe that after we die, we will be resurrected. And we will be called to account for what we chose.

01:21:03--> 01:21:03

What

01:21:04--> 01:21:19

we chose to believe and to do on that day, everyone will be given their full reward in the life of this world is a preparation for that day. You know, it's a very, one of the beautiful, I had this of resources.

01:21:21--> 01:22:01

People would come and ask him when is the day of judgment? And he would always say, What have you prepared for it? Right? One time a group of people give to him. And among those groups that were in that group was a little boy. So they asked him a year. So Allah when is the Day of Judgment, as well as ourselves looked at a little boy. And he said that if Allah gives him a long life, then all of you would have reached a day of judgment before he dies. So he's referring to our own personal death, that when we die, this is our day of judgment. Don't worry about the Day of Judgment whenever that is that Allah knows, when my day of judgment will be the day when I meet multiple bots, my day

01:22:01--> 01:22:37

of judgment will be the day when I die. So let me prepare for this day, that this day, which should be the most beautiful day, and that's going to happen only if I all my life is more beautiful, there is no way of dying on obedience, if you are living with disobedience, because death will come certainly without dancing. So, we will die in the state in which we were living and we will be resurrected in the state in which we die. So let us be very very careful about that. So we believe that we will be selected and on that day we will be given we will be given the full reward, which means the reward or punishment for what we used to do, unless I could have seen that you can vote

01:22:37--> 01:23:27

for it number two, a phone or you rock home yo multi for man Zorzi ha and Inari. What will the silyl Janata facut first for Malhar to duniya Illa Mata otro Allah said everyone will will taste death and only on the Day of Resurrection, will you be paid your wages in full, and whoever is removed away from the fire and admitted to Jannah indeed, that person is successful, is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception or it's a deceiving thing. So very important to understand here a lot of monitor is mentioning four things one that we will always do. And secondly that on only on the Day of Judgment will we be completely rewarded. May Allah protect us and protect

01:23:27--> 01:23:50

us from punishment. And third one is Allah is setting the the standard, the criterion of success that is to be saved from the fire and enter into Janna. And the fourth one is a reminder that this world and audit contains all the conditions and whatnot, merely deception, these are all just for sure. And so therefore missing do not get deceived.

01:23:52--> 01:23:55

And other systems we ask Allah subhanaw taala to

01:23:56--> 01:24:16

help us to truly believe in the truth of Islam, in all its articles of faith and to live our lives according to that faith, with the intention of only and only pleasing Allah subhanaw taala We ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us to remain in a state of obedience to Him geladeira know, on the path of His Messenger, Muhammad wa salatu salam

01:24:17--> 01:24:18

to which he called us

01:24:20--> 01:24:41

and to call us to Himself geladeira who in that state when we are living, obedient to Him general and on the path of on the Sunnah as well as in Salem. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to forgive our sins, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us from humiliation that comes from disobeying him geladeira who ask Allah subhanaw taala to

01:24:42--> 01:24:59

make this lecture. A series of guidance means a guidance for all of us who are listening to it and will listen to it and to save me from any mistakes that I may have made in this scholarship monitor to forgive me as I asked you to make the

01:25:00--> 01:25:08
