Malala Hakuna Walla

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

Walla, Washington now are you under the

00:00:51--> 00:00:52

Muslim

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

community

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

holla comin hezonja with a new manager and coffee

00:01:05--> 00:01:06

in the world candidate Maki

00:01:07--> 00:01:15

tafawa Hola, Hola. Hola, como American? Well, Mama, you Tyler hasura focus on the mobile

00:01:17--> 00:01:19

show today is going to be

00:01:20--> 00:01:32

part one of a series. And I think we should be done within within three parts. So part one, two, and three shavathon. And the discussion is going to be about

00:01:34--> 00:01:38

the man's ultimate enemy,

00:01:40--> 00:01:45

which is shavon. Now, although I must say that sometimes

00:01:47--> 00:01:49

your enemy may or may be,

00:01:51--> 00:02:25

we should find is indeed our biggest enemy. But sometimes it is a collaboration between SharePoint and some of our weaknesses that causes us to do whatever we do. And the objective of this series is not to find a scapegoat or to blame all our issues on shavon. But rather, is just to understand the nature of this of this enemy of ours. And it's not of course talking about she applied and make a big deal out of it, but rather to see what the Court has said about a lot of the Almighty and look for answers in a shape or form.

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

The shape

00:02:30--> 00:02:36

that shape part is indeed an enemy of yours. So consider him an enemy.

00:02:38--> 00:02:49

Right. And a loss of habitat also tells us in the harap lm era had relayed to me a very adamant letter with the shape on in the hall of model movie.

00:02:50--> 00:02:52

Right, have I not advised?

00:02:54--> 00:03:18

Or have I not instructed you or children of Adam? Not to worship shape on for he is indeed a manifest a clear enemy of yours. Clearly he is your enemy is self evident. Right. So how about not that that is a big problem, but we will see a shower maybe in the in the coming parts of this See? To what extent

00:03:20--> 00:03:24

shaped pond has actually invaded our minds without us knowing.

00:03:26--> 00:03:34

Right. And, and also, it may not be a serious phenomenon, maybe in the Muslim community here in the West. But it's very strange when you see

00:03:37--> 00:03:49

safe satan worshippers. You know, in the Middle East, you have youth, young people, Muslim boardrooms of families that actually

00:03:50--> 00:03:53

go into worshipping Shere Khan.

00:03:54--> 00:04:02

Satanism How did that when you see people doing things, when you see men and women

00:04:03--> 00:04:08

dealing, or dabbling into witchcraft, and

00:04:10--> 00:04:14

black magic, and all these things that are from the ways of children,

00:04:15--> 00:04:26

when you see people really getting outraged and angry and pretty much allowing a powerful access to their emotion, and you see shavon getting his weight.

00:04:28--> 00:04:59

Right? When they see an increase in divorce rate, it looks like we really don't fully comprehend the nature of this of this enemy. Right? And we're not well aware of his presence, and how to protect ourselves and our relationships from from him. Now, I don't want to scare you for chiffons lesson how that describes the trick. So Schiphol describes shapefile and his ways as weak in the feeder ship on it can operate on it is weak.

00:05:01--> 00:05:07

The only time a father actually can over power someone is when that person is weaker.

00:05:08--> 00:05:18

It's like when your immune system is down viruses and, you know, can can get to you and make you sick. Or if your immune system is strong,

00:05:20--> 00:05:26

your shout Allah protected. So who is this enemy? And where did it start?

00:05:28--> 00:05:36

And this is one of those in a series that I was trying to be, you know, I didn't want to give too much information and get into,

00:05:37--> 00:05:48

let's say, get into details that may not be very relevant. But nonetheless, the, the animosity started, when a lot of hanel attallah

00:05:49--> 00:06:09

declared or when Allah subhana wa tada decreed to create a human being the first of human beings at emmalin Santa's that's when this, that's what triggered this animosity. So chiffon became pretty much jealous or envious

00:06:12--> 00:06:28

of man at the money center and his descendants. Now, let us let us be clear on this shapefiles issue, although it was triggered, and provoked

00:06:29--> 00:06:37

by the creation of Adam and amasa cartella, ordering chiffon to prostrate ordering the angels to prostrate. Right.

00:06:38--> 00:06:39

But,

00:06:41--> 00:06:54

Adam, any scenario, human beings are not responsible for chiffons nature, because we're going to talk about this in the future. Satan is Satan. That's That's who he was, you know, sometimes people have these, these biases that are hidden.

00:06:55--> 00:07:25

And in order for them to surface and come out, they have to be provoked. So when they're provoked, you know, it shows. So Satan had ego, and he had arrogance. Right, and he had hatred. But all of that was suppressed, you know. So when it was provoked, when he was tested, when it was provoked, it came out, that's what happened. So we can say, Well, you know, Adam was, I don't have nothing to do with it. Just like By the way, shape on is not responsible for the action of man.

00:07:26--> 00:07:29

Man is not responsible for the fate of Shiva.

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

Right?

00:07:31--> 00:07:35

Okay. So who is the, you know,

00:07:36--> 00:07:38

generally speaking,

00:07:39--> 00:07:42

she Paul is and I'm not again, I'm basing this on on the work of

00:07:46--> 00:07:51

Jared. So he says, generally speaking, shapefile is anything or anyone that

00:07:53--> 00:07:53

that

00:07:55--> 00:08:10

brings people away from a loss of power from the obedience of Allah, it actually means something that that that has drifted away or something that is, that is far, that is something that has become removed. Right? away from

00:08:11--> 00:08:12

and

00:08:14--> 00:08:21

shapefile. You know, could, you know, we're talking about whether we're talking about a very specific

00:08:22--> 00:08:49

figure or a specific creature, right? Generally speaking, the word shape on itself means someone who is a good translation will be of it would be devil, right? Someone of devilish nature, someone that deviates from the from the truth, and, and, and is pot away from it. So, but the shape, one that we're talking about is not this general concept

00:08:51--> 00:08:58

of evil devil. It's not, we're talking about someone who's specific, his name, and his beliefs

00:08:59--> 00:09:10

and beliefs for he has actually gained he has given up on the mercy of Allah He has fallen into despair from the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala because he had a belt and he did not attempt

00:09:13--> 00:09:18

although there is a debate amongst some scholars as to what the nature of shade foreigners feel

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

like.

00:09:22--> 00:09:28

But the opinion that I feel very comfortable with is that shade one is actually

00:09:29--> 00:09:34

it believes is in terms of his creation, he is from the gym.

00:09:36--> 00:09:37

And there is a very

00:09:38--> 00:09:39

explicit

00:09:41--> 00:09:52

verse in the Quran. Now again, there are some scholars of Amazonia are there some scholars who believe that no, he was an angel. He was an angel, when he became a devil.

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

Now, it's my belief that he was actually a jinn to begin with

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

Gender are different creation, they're different from, from the angels. There is a different social form this creature was originally was of the jinn.

00:10:12--> 00:10:14

What's the difference between jinn and angels?

00:10:15--> 00:10:16

Anyone?

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

Yes.

00:10:20--> 00:10:22

Angels are older than the ages.

00:10:23--> 00:10:24

All good. Okay.

00:10:26--> 00:10:31

But in terms of not only in terms of their qualities or traits, but in terms of the nature

00:10:35--> 00:10:40

what is good, what is bad? Okay. No gins actually could be good to

00:10:41--> 00:10:49

just could be good or bad. Angels are always good. God didn't know that this could be good. Yeah, okay.

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

Yes.

00:10:57--> 00:10:58

Yes.

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

There are two different species. Let's Let's assert that.

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

Okay.

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

Yeah, maybe my question is not clear.

00:11:13--> 00:11:19

Okay, now, the original the equation is different. A lot created the angels from light.

00:11:21--> 00:11:27

Someone might say, oh, Angel, or might not have they're not necessarily like they're created from light, how and what we don't know.

00:11:28--> 00:11:35

We didn't even witness our own creation, let alone the creation of origins are the ages, Allah says match have to help us and

00:11:37--> 00:11:59

we didn't even witness our own creation. There was a reason, okay. So just like human beings were created out of clay and evolved into who we are now today. Right? Likewise, angels were originally created the substance, the real substance of their creation is light, where that was really the substance of their creation is fire

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

to different things,

00:12:03--> 00:12:03

by

00:12:05--> 00:12:11

angels, and I don't want to get into whether they have free will or not angels are, they have

00:12:13--> 00:12:15

good inclination.

00:12:18--> 00:12:45

Right, they don't have evil tendencies, they don't have the tendency to, to develop, they don't have, and they don't have desires, and they don't have lust, and they don't have needs, you know, so they don't eat and drink likely to wear jeans, or like human beings, they do have three will they have tendency to do good or bad, or although most of the time, they're kind of on,

00:12:46--> 00:13:14

due to some of the power that they possess, or some of the qualities, some of the unique qualities that they have. They're, they're more, you know, they have tendency to, to be on the on the evil side. But generally speaking, they have the, they have the ability to choose between good and bad, right. And there is plenty of evidence that they actually eat drink. Now, there are some similarities, the fact that they're in different rooms, both the angels and the gin to different,

00:13:16--> 00:13:18

right, they can see us we can't see them.

00:13:20--> 00:13:22

They're in a different dimension

00:13:23--> 00:13:25

than our dimension. Right.

00:13:26--> 00:13:32

And maybe their dimension is superior to our dimension. And that's why they can see us but we can't see them.

00:13:33--> 00:13:34

That was

00:13:35--> 00:13:36

clearly in the

00:13:37--> 00:13:37

title.

00:13:39--> 00:13:40

Right.

00:13:42--> 00:13:51

And they possess all kinds of qualities. I don't want to get into the details of what kind of qualities they have. But generally speaking, shavon is one of them.

00:13:52--> 00:13:59

She finally is one of them. And then he had high status amongst the ranks of the angels. He used to

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

call

00:14:02--> 00:14:06

you know, he used to live or be in the rights of the angels.

00:14:07--> 00:14:11

Although, although he wasn't an angel, right?

00:14:15--> 00:14:28

Then Allah Subhana Allah made that that order that commandment, Allah subhanaw taala or your shape on to order the angels to prostrate for Adam.

00:14:29--> 00:14:30

Right?

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

Everybody did all the angels obeyed that. Right? And she says she upon was in the ranks of the angels when the order was given to the angels, he should have actually prostrated with them. Or at least if he if he didn't know, or if he didn't think that the commandment was directed to him. He should have said, Well, I was not order you just ordered the angels, but he actually didn't. I wasn't gonna put him casaya do the angels prostrated all of the inland police except police can I mean

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

in need, he was a virgin, Professor calm and we won't be any deviated or he rebelled against the commandment of his Lord.

00:15:08--> 00:15:09

Right.

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

His justification was

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

shaper try to justify his rebellion.

00:15:22--> 00:15:31

And he said, when I told him when I lost as to shape on today at least 11 Archuleta cooler. Minnesota de

00:15:32--> 00:15:47

su De Lima fell up to bat. So in model, someone said, Why didn't you prostrate for that which I have created with my own hands? Why didn't he? Why weren't you one of those who prostrate it? He responded and He justified his action by saying,

00:15:49--> 00:16:06

I am better than him. Why should I Prostrate to Adam when I am better than and I'm superior to him. Alex eliminar You created me and this is the evidence You created me from fire wahala the human clean and He created him from clay

00:16:08--> 00:16:18

from from this, so he thought that fire right, you know you have you have water? Air fire What else?

00:16:19--> 00:16:22

There is? He said the four elements.

00:16:24--> 00:16:27

soil. So to him fire is superior.

00:16:29--> 00:16:35

To All right, because when you create something out of clay, what do you do to strengthen it?

00:16:36--> 00:16:54

you bake it, you bake it and so it strengthens it. Right? And also fire has its very destructive power. So it can destroy anything. Somehow he made that. justify that to himself. By the way. Who knows what is superior to what? Except them?

00:16:57--> 00:17:08

Right? Because if we have fire and if we have water, water to say, Oh, I'm superior to fire because I can put up a fire fire can come and say well, wait a minute, I can boil you and then 30 into

00:17:10--> 00:17:11

it esteem. That's it.

00:17:13--> 00:17:13

Right?

00:17:14--> 00:17:23

I mean, and this is a great lesson, you know, anytime you as a human being feel like you are superior to someone else.

00:17:24--> 00:17:28

Right? Then you're actually adopting a satanic

00:17:30--> 00:17:52

quality. That's the way she thinks. And in fact, I was hoping you shower, maybe I'll get you to come one day and do a psycho analysis of chiffons personality. Because it's very strange. It's really weird, because when you hear when you read, you know, some of the psychoanalysis of shape on what his personality some of the complexes that you find has is deeply disturbed.

00:17:53--> 00:18:00

Right. And you get shocked as to how many times we may actually behave

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

like,

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

you know,

00:18:05--> 00:18:21

and you wonder whether that is our nature or that is something that is inspired by him. That's why we have to be very careful, we have to be aware. So So he said, I am better superior, and so on.

00:18:23--> 00:18:40

I mean, where did you get that from? Right? And instead of repenting at that point, when he found out now that he didn't know, he should have said, I'm sorry, I apologize. Forgive me, Lord. He said, Karla Sabina avoid any law.

00:18:44--> 00:18:46

So he said, No.

00:18:50--> 00:18:58

And he said, then you need to leave heaven. For you cannot be arrogant. In Heaven, there is no place for arrogant people.

00:18:59--> 00:19:27

There is only one that To Whom belongs glory and majesty. And that is a lot. No one can be in heaven. You have to behave and have this very humble attitude. You have to have humility. And since this does not reflect any humility, you need to leave. You're going to leave that here repent at that point say no, no, no God, oh, Lord, don't let me go. No. He said, Okay. If that's the case, then he said, Call me back.

00:19:29--> 00:19:31

Then give me Make me immortal.

00:19:33--> 00:19:46

Give me life until the Day of Resurrection. I will show you that Adam and his descendants are not worthy of any others. And I will show you who they are.

00:19:48--> 00:19:52

And so to Allah, Allah says Allah has given away to the law for them.

00:19:55--> 00:19:59

That as you have a look, he's not taking any responsibility. He says

00:20:01--> 00:20:28

Because now you cause me to to deviate. Now he's planning a lot more, instead of saying, Oh, I deviated and he said he's not taking any responsibility whatsoever from the beginning, from day one, he's actually rejecting any responsibility. As much as we like to blame him for our actions, by the way, chiffon does not believe that he is responsible for any any of your actions. And he's gonna make that very clear at the end I'm going to share with you,

00:20:29--> 00:20:33

right, so then, and then he made his agenda very clear.

00:20:36--> 00:20:49

I will actually get in the way of your straight path, I'm going to get in the way, and I am going to distract them, I'm going to be right there, leading them in every direction, and I am going to come at them from every direction.

00:20:54--> 00:21:16

And big moment demon hunting one, a man named Ron shakily, you will find most of them not to be grateful, I shall come He says, I shall come from every direction from from from in front of them, from behind them from their left from their right, I'm going to come from every direction. And you will not find most of them to be grateful, most of them.

00:21:22--> 00:21:23

Not Ah,

00:21:24--> 00:21:26

of course, he cannot come from the top because it must be from

00:21:29--> 00:21:30

now,

00:21:31--> 00:21:33

chiffon.

00:21:34--> 00:21:38

Oh, by the way, bear in mind that chiffon addressed a loss of Paradise as what

00:21:40--> 00:21:41

very interesting.

00:21:43--> 00:21:46

hobby, he addressed of law as

00:21:48--> 00:21:53

being my Lord. So even chiffon knows that God is his Lord is the Lord.

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

By the way, also, he didn't say My God, he didn't say God, he didn't say ilahi.

00:22:03--> 00:22:24

Why? Because a lot is the Lord of everything in everyone. He is the Lord of the whole of the heavens on earth. He is the Lord of all creation. And everybody submitted to this fact, even those who reject that even those who do not recognize that was existence, he's still there, Lord, whether they like it or not, whether they confess or even atheists.

00:22:26--> 00:22:27

Right?

00:22:29--> 00:22:43

Because it isn't, it's funny, sometimes when atheists actually debate about God, and they reject a law, and they have this anger against God. I'm like, how can you have anger against something that doesn't exist? If God doesn't exist? Why are you angry with God?

00:22:45--> 00:22:52

You know, like that question, they asked, How could a loving God do this to people and like, he doesn't exist in your mind? So why do you? Why do you bother?

00:22:54--> 00:23:07

If he doesn't exist? Why are we even debating? If he exists, and you're upset? And you want me to explain to you why and then that's it. That's a different story. But he does exist, doesn't he? know he doesn't exist? Okay, why bother? Why are you upset.

00:23:10--> 00:23:18

And that's why I don't believe that there's a true atheist doesn't exist. God's existence, as long as the Lord is self evident,

00:23:20--> 00:23:21

self evident.

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

I remember one time having this discussion with someone that initially claimed to be an atheist from East Germany, a young college

00:23:34--> 00:23:38

graduate. So I said to her, when

00:23:40--> 00:24:03

the discussion led to the fact that there is a God, but she does not believe anyone knows who that God is. from, from, from the fact that God doesn't exist, we reach to the point that God exists, but nobody has access to that God, or that God has just created us and left us. So I told her that God exists with you. Do you really think that he's just gonna let us like this?

00:24:04--> 00:24:08

Well, yeah, it doesn't make sense. Okay, he must have told us what to do.

00:24:10--> 00:24:16

We want to know where we can find them. And that's where it became very scary. That means

00:24:18--> 00:24:23

it's very convenient, by the way just to deny his existence. Oh, he doesn't. That's why when when, when someone

00:24:24--> 00:24:43

when someone does not want to be responsible, let's say for his family, and that person becomes so careless, and he neglects his family, or maybe once a week deserves his family, his children and his wife or right. They don't want to think about family. So they pretend like they don't exist, but in reality, they do exist.

00:24:44--> 00:24:53

But if they think about the existence of the family, and they you know, then they have to take care of it. They have to, they have responsibility. That's why they don't want to.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

It is part of it's a satanic actually. Also, add

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

Truth to rebel against authority

00:25:04--> 00:25:05

to rebel against authority.

00:25:07--> 00:25:15

So in the case of Shere Khan, he says, He doesn't say that he because he's not worshipped, he now means he's committed for his rejecting.

00:25:16--> 00:25:27

Because if you say that he then you have to basically behave like God is someone that you actually take as a deity and that you actually worship or obey. So I'm also Hamlet, Allah says

00:25:30--> 00:25:32

shavon asked a lot,

00:25:33--> 00:25:34

he begged a lot to

00:25:36--> 00:25:37

prolong his life,

00:25:38--> 00:25:40

in a mud granted him that

00:25:41--> 00:25:42

will have given

00:25:44--> 00:25:45

Java louder.

00:25:50--> 00:25:53

So I want to actually say that let me live a long life

00:25:55--> 00:26:05

in this life, not an eternal life, or let me live a long life in this life. And I'm not granted him that. Why? Because dunya is worthless.

00:26:06--> 00:26:17

Yeah, those of us who say, oh, is a model to answer my job. If I, if he desperately, genuinely desire something from a lot, and the Bank of heaven asked him, you think he's not going to give it to you?

00:26:19--> 00:26:25

If Satan asked the law for something, and he gave it to him, said, I want to live until the end of time. He said, okay, you live.

00:26:27--> 00:26:29

God is gracious. He's great.

00:26:31--> 00:26:56

And sometimes we think, Well, you know, what are the things that sometimes make us fall into a state of despair and say, oh, God is not going to answer my job. Why? Why? Because he doesn't have enough for everybody. No, he has plenty. He has plenty. Okay. Why, oh, my sins are greater than the mercy of God. You think your sins are going to offend God or your sister to great that if you ask for forgiveness, God is not going to forgive you.

00:26:57--> 00:27:01

Sometimes we think of a Muslim kind of Adam, from a human point of view.

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

Human beings hold grudges.

00:27:05--> 00:27:15

You know, you go to him being apologetic. I'm sorry for giving them a no no. Why do we get hurt, we get we hold grudges and right, unless God doesn't hold grudges.

00:27:17--> 00:27:40

He was well aware of the sin that you're going to commit or that you're committing way before he committed. And he opens the gates of mercy for you. They're wide open. In the story of a belief in Adam, we find that when Adam alayhis salaam committed a sin out of weakness, and he repented to a lot like getting the opportunity to repent a lot. Not only did he accept him and embrace him, but he even brought him closer.

00:27:42--> 00:27:44

So metabolically.

00:27:45--> 00:27:47

Besides bah,

00:27:49--> 00:27:50

bah, bah, bah, bah, boo.

00:27:53--> 00:27:55

He brought him closer.

00:27:56--> 00:27:58

Right? Brandon even concert so.

00:27:59--> 00:28:12

So Allison can't answer that. And the scholar said that Allah subhanaw taala. Granted at least this because it was, it was the decree of a loss of habitat. It was a destiny.

00:28:14--> 00:28:31

Satan prayed for something that was part of the destiny of a loss of Hannah without this was meant to happen. So Allah subhanaw taala. Sent human beings down to earth. Allah in the plan as the source of

00:28:32--> 00:28:37

Jamia, we said, All of you go down to this planet Earth.

00:28:38--> 00:28:53

And by the way, is is worthy to be noted that Earth at this point has already gone through all kinds of phases. And in Islamic tradition, by the way, this is something very unique in this long tradition. We don't believe that Earth is as old as man.

00:28:55--> 00:29:08

In fact, we can even find evidence in the Bible or in the Old Testament. If God created Adam, from the soil of this planet, that means this planet pre existed, I mean, was there before Adam?

00:29:10--> 00:29:52

Right? So we don't believe that Earth is only 5000 years old that God created Earth, especially specifically just for Adam to come. We believe that there could have been actually life on this planet before Adam. So when someone comes to talk about evolution, and talks about other, you know, crazy, yeah, perhaps the word of equation but it's not necessarily that we as human beings, our species did not evolve from those creatures, but the one who created them created us. So there's any resemblance in terms of DNA or in terms of, of some of the traits that we have. Yeah, the one who created those creatures, and those species created us. So what's the big deal? What's the big deal?

00:29:53--> 00:29:58

Right, but us as human beings, our equation started with Adam

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

We if we did not evolve from something else,

00:30:07--> 00:30:22

right? Someone might say, Oh, do you believe in evolution within the same race or within the same human race? I'm talking about because we're all one race at the end of the day. Do you believe there could be? Yeah, that's why we have differences, variations,

00:30:23--> 00:30:34

of colors of teachers and all of that. We're not like some other, we're not like this A chimps or we're not like horses, we don't know. there is variation.

00:30:36--> 00:30:47

Right. And this is recorded in the plan. This is from the beauty of the pie, you will not find anything in the plan that is contradictory to any scientific fact, in terms of the creation. So Adam and Eve came down.

00:30:49--> 00:30:56

That although they were created from from the substance of this planet, they were not existing on this part. And then they came down to this point

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

that

00:31:01--> 00:31:16

we're returning at the time of death, and we are supposed to be bearing pleasure from Tarleton O'Hara. And from it, we bring you out again. Okay. And then the struggle between shape one and human beings started on this on this planet.

00:31:17--> 00:31:20

Now, Adam learned the lesson from what happened in agenda.

00:31:22--> 00:31:30

Right? Although in general loss of habitat and said to Adam and Eve in the Heather, I do like her when is odk

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

he is indeed an enemy for you and your wife, be careful, be well aware of him. And don't let him lead you out of this place.

00:31:41--> 00:31:52

Adam and Eve have your house have access to everything agenda, everything is okay. Nothing. The only thing is, one tree is off limits.

00:31:53--> 00:32:10

It means either one specific tree, one particular tree or one type of tree, we don't know could be one specific type of tree. That tree and its fruits of limit. Don't come here. But someone might say one tree that we don't know. Some people say Apple you know Adam's apple

00:32:12--> 00:32:21

we don't know. We don't know what it was. I personally believe that it was an apple because if Apple was was how long it would have been Halloween today.

00:32:22--> 00:32:37

But you know, but we don't know. So we don't know what what three it is. It's some some tree I was told not to come the electric chief one prayed on a on an aspect within human nature curiosity and

00:32:38--> 00:32:43

and he came to Adam in tempted have carcinoma in the LACMA?

00:32:44--> 00:33:05

You know, he actually made an oath. He was swearing by a law that this is good and try it. And also from an Islamic tradition, we do not believe that Satan tempted Eve. And then he went and convinced Adam and therefore Eve is responsible for Adam's sin and therefore women are cursed.

00:33:06--> 00:33:07

That's an Islamic.

00:33:08--> 00:33:09

Did you know this sisters?

00:33:11--> 00:33:12

It's not true.

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

Right? It's not. So women are in fact, the

00:33:19--> 00:33:54

cleaning clearly states that Adam was responsible for his own sin, Allah Hansen's, but also Adam would have done. So if anything, the Quran actually puts the blame on Adam does it put it on the cover in another place among the paradigmatic lives of both, each one is responsible for his own actions, and anything else that some traditions claim that women are because of that God punish the melanin snatch. And also another point that is worthy of to be noted here is that we do not inherit it.

00:33:56--> 00:34:07

The sin we already know self concept there is. So in fact, each one of us, each human being is born sinless. We don't the sin of Adam does not transfer.

00:34:09--> 00:34:18

It does not transfer. You know, just like being the son of a prophet doesn't make you a prophet. Being a son of a pious person doesn't make you Pisces.

00:34:20--> 00:34:24

Being a son or a child or a daughter of a wicked person doesn't make you wicked.

00:34:26--> 00:34:29

Every human being is responsible for his or her own actions.

00:34:30--> 00:34:31

Instead of

00:34:32--> 00:34:45

massage or whatever it is, you want to withdraw from that, you know, no one's no one's sin affects anyone else in terms of burden. You are not burdened by your parisons.

00:34:46--> 00:34:49

Everyone is responsible for their own actions.

00:34:51--> 00:34:59

Nonetheless, chiffon made this oath bear in mind that she means what he says and he who is he talking to God, in fact,

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

point he swears by God, he says, All offended Exotica. He's swearing by the glory of God isn't by your glory or God.

00:35:11--> 00:35:22

You look at the audacity of xenophobia is typically known as you may, I will distract, I will attempt each and every single one of them.

00:35:24--> 00:35:25

And then he made an exception

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

in the event that

00:35:31--> 00:35:57

he said except the sincere was even shaper knows he has, he has limited that he had limited access. There there is a group of people that he cannot get to. And another, I must have told him no, no, there are some special servants of mine that you will never be able to affect. In fact, shape one has no effect on human beings whatsoever. And we'll talk about that. So, for a lot says that he had no authority

00:35:59--> 00:36:01

over anyone in the National Park.

00:36:05--> 00:36:13

So you can only have authority or power over anyone, if they give him that power. If they allow that.

00:36:14--> 00:36:15

Right.

00:36:16--> 00:36:24

At the end, an idea that we're going to come back and revisit again, what kind of shape on a monthly and the end of sorts of money, right?

00:36:25--> 00:36:29

What kind of shape model not the end or to the right, two pages before the end.

00:36:30--> 00:36:59

When the shapefile says, Chief, I said will the marriage settle? In Nevada, Wyoming for more than a lot has promised you the truth? Well, after I promised you but I break my promises. Right? Then he says this is this is key for those people who always believed me upon getting because sometimes I have been saying, Yeah, she Oh my god, I can't believe what happened. I'm like, Okay, what happened? Like I divorced my wife not How about why did you do that? Well, it's a fun.

00:37:01--> 00:37:36

Or actually, if you don't believe what happened, I did this to my husband, sister. Why would you do that your husband? You know, shape on your husband shape one? No, no. It's the shape either way, it made me do that. So if I said one day I can do it. And so far, I had no authority over you in the office to get to me except that I tempted you. I provoked you I attempt to do first digitally and you answered me you responded to me for that testimony model more implicit absorb blame me not and blame yourselves. And you blame me.

00:37:37--> 00:37:55

Okay, so what is chiffons biggest loss was of course, you know, I mean, he's yet to see the consequences of his actions later, but shape on a lot of times as part of a pilot who's been hammered home and much safer, less cursed and humiliated.

00:37:56--> 00:38:07

Right, the man coming home any one of them who will follow you, after they have been warned? Right? If they decide to follow you worship you listen to you. Let

00:38:08--> 00:38:12

me congratulate you all indeed, Philip hellfire.

00:38:14--> 00:38:29

I will fill up Hellfire of you and those of them who will end up following and of course, those who reject and and resist will go back to Jelena In fact, they will go to a better place. Okay.

00:38:30--> 00:38:39

So what is now she was number one, or top priority that he has mastered over centuries,

00:38:40--> 00:38:58

right over these 10 centuries, is how to cause men, or of course, women how to cause human beings to deviate from the path of a lot. And by the way, shavon doesn't care he will do it at different levels. Of course, his ultimate goal is to have human beings reject a lot altogether.

00:38:59--> 00:39:19

And rebel against someone and if they don't reject a lot altogether, worship someone else other than Allah. And if they don't do that, it's all on the same level. By the way, this is the the greatest sin ever sure, if they No, totally reject a law or worship someone else who says Allah, worship someone else along with Allah.

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

You know, so they worship Allah, but they also worship something else besides Allah or someone else. And I think Dr. Ahmed has spoken about this. The concept of Shere Khan, how associating partners with this is all of the same level, and he doesn't care who that other object or thing is, it could be an idol. It could be a person, it could be a prophet, it could be an email, it could be a chef. It could be a righteous person. It could be a man, it could be a woman. It could be anything.

00:39:50--> 00:40:00

It could be someone's Well, usually people don't worship the desire in and of itself as well. It could be any figure. In fact, he succeeded when I feel

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

aquasafe succeeded, I will close with this example,

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

the first group of idols that were worshipped, right?

00:40:09--> 00:40:10

In

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

this is before the time of Noah, Noah

00:40:15--> 00:40:17

wapato that he had upon

00:40:18--> 00:40:22

the people of North said, Don't abandon your Lord,

00:40:23--> 00:40:29

or your gods, your gods and look at the audacity gods. How many?

00:40:30--> 00:40:47

Multiple gods and deities? What do you How can you call him? God? We only ask someone who created they will say a lot. He's the Lord. He created me how many gods we have they used to say multiple gods. But how can one create you when you end up worshipping multiple deities? Where did that come from?

00:40:48--> 00:40:54

What kind of method they said, No, this is our, our tradition, paganism. This is our tradition, we'll call you back.

00:40:56--> 00:40:58

Walton was one when I

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

was wrong, they need five gods.

00:41:03--> 00:41:10

We used to have five guys, where do those cuts come from? Guess what? Those names are names of

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

actual human beings. In fact, righteous human beings, good human beings, people that they gave sainthood, to, they consider them to be saints. They were righteous people. Right. And when they died, what they did is they wanted to basically show respect to them, and keep them memory. So what they did is they decided to chain on came in, tempted to worship, build upon their grace tunes for them. And then they were told they thought it was a good idea. You know how like, sometimes people like to get creative. You see, creativity is good. Creativity is good. When when you are trying to

00:41:52--> 00:42:06

when you're making salad, that's good. Creativity is good with your cuisine, you know, that's fine. You want to mix mix up spices, you want to come up with a new combination of so you can get creative with that if you want to

00:42:07--> 00:42:08

write right.

00:42:09--> 00:42:15

When it comes to Deen worshiping Allah, your relationship, the most important, the most critical

00:42:16--> 00:42:46

aspect of our existence, you can't get created there. Because Allah told us how to worship Him and what it takes. They got a little creative. So they thought she wanted, why don't you just build images? Or why don't you just carve images, because people are going to forget what this seat with this green man looked like. So therefore, put his face, right, carve his face on the gray so we can tell them apart? Okay, they created an image,

00:42:48--> 00:43:01

the next generation or the same generation after a while? Well, since they used to be amongst us, and whenever something of great significance happen, we used to gather around them, why don't we gather their grade? Eventually,

00:43:02--> 00:43:33

they ended up worshipping them. Initially, they used to ask God to bless them by the virtue of these people. By the virtue of these individuals, later, they started talking to them, they said, oh, God is he's so good. So perfect, we are so full of sins. And we are we have all these deficiencies. And these are human beings like us, they understand they can relate to us they can they know where we're coming from. So therefore if we appeal, if we just please if we just beg them to ask God on their on our behalf.

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

Connection intermediaries, that's how to form data. And we thought it was a great idea. Okay, so they started asking them to ask God on their behalf.

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

And they ended up worshiping. That's how it was. And by the way, if someone comes and says, oh, what are you talking about? I have witnessed this myself. I have seen this myself. And if anyone comes and says no, no, you're making a big deal. Well, what it's a it's a lie.

00:44:04--> 00:44:05

But we have to be honest.

00:44:07--> 00:44:23

How many times has anyone uh, let me see if I'm the only one. Have you, yourself directly hurt someone pray to someone other than a lot and ask them to ask a law or ask them to bless them or to do anything for them. Have you heard that?

00:44:24--> 00:44:31

No, no, I'm talking about ordinary Muslims sometimes, or even sometimes other than Muslims. What about other than Muslims?

00:44:33--> 00:44:36

No, no, no, I'm talking about directly someone asking.

00:44:37--> 00:44:39

How about all Mother of God?

00:44:40--> 00:44:45

Or Holy Mother of God or whatever. When people ask me, that's, that's what it is.

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

Or ask Jesus or someone asked Prophet Mohammed.

00:44:51--> 00:44:59

So and I heard this and seen it with my own eyes and I've heard people pray to human beings and ask them to bless them or ask them to ask

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

on their behalf, our religion, that's what Prophet Muhammad came to liberate us from.

00:45:06--> 00:45:09

And say, you know what you worship and pray to God directly.

00:45:11--> 00:45:18

You worship and pray to God, directly, everyone has the potential to be to be righteous and to be pious.

00:45:20--> 00:45:23

And to be to be a special servant of our last panel.

00:45:25--> 00:45:56

So, so Satan basically tempted them. And that's how they deviated so that's his ultimate goal. And then if he cannot accomplish that, he will settle for anything less and he has like a list of priorities or he has like a plan. So get the person to commit major sins, get this get that, you know, distract him distract her from this have have the midst of their priorities, anything, anything, right? In fact, you know, one of those things that shape or form loves to do is breakups.

00:45:57--> 00:45:59

Destroy and end relationships,

00:46:00--> 00:46:09

breakups, right? So I'm gonna stop right here. There's any question comments or suggestions or objections, please feel free. So

00:46:11--> 00:46:19

no, no one, okay. No one is considered a follower of shaytan until they follow him all the way, meaning those who continue to follow him until they enter hellfire.

00:46:20--> 00:46:22

But, but of course, any one

00:46:23--> 00:46:27

of us could be tempted or could be overcome or could be, you know.

00:46:29--> 00:47:10

So it doesn't mean that someone who slipped once or twice or on someone who's struggling against, it means someone who, either fully and totally submissive to a partner follows him. or, or, or worships a man or someone who constantly does that, solely so that they, they pretty much die upon wickedness. So doesn't mean just someone that just made a mistake once or twice or three times or multiple times. But they always repent and they're always struggling. You know, in fact, that's that should many of us, I mean, we belong to that category. Right? In fact, that's what that's what makes me special. And by the way, that is one frustration on there's one heavy, where the Prophet also

00:47:10--> 00:47:25

talks about shavon sending his army of devils all over, you know, because everyone when we're born, okay, so they're all over the place right. Now, I don't want to scare you. I don't want you to think that you know, but they're always whispering.

00:47:26--> 00:47:36

And we'll talk about that, how does shape on, you know, how does his work is? How does it function? How does it work? How does that affect us, which I will in part two, but

00:47:38--> 00:48:16

in 108, we are told that when, when seekers, Army or soldiers come back reporting to him, what they have accomplished. They have like progress reports, they go back, check in and check in with him. They tell him things like, Oh, I made him do this, I made her do that. I made it. I'm not trying to minimize those things since our sins and we should know, be careful. But oh, I made him drink. I made him for decayed. I made him lie. Satan will tell them all Cain, when he gets sober, he's going to regret that and he's going to repent, and that will undo everything that you did no big deal.

00:48:17--> 00:48:24

You know, he doesn't think that until one of them comes in, says, I kept pushing him or her until they got divorced.

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

And he tells that that person come here. You have a man, you sit next to me, he promotes that, that that one?

00:48:34--> 00:48:38

That's why I said shippon rejoices over breakups. Why?

00:48:39--> 00:48:40

Why

00:48:41--> 00:48:45

the destruction of the family means destruction of a society.

00:48:46--> 00:48:50

It means that person has, you know,

00:48:51--> 00:49:06

it's that kind of breakup will not only, you know, it would ruin the person that that individual was, you know, both parties and everyone who's involved. And that's why, you know, it is something celebrated.

00:49:07--> 00:49:09

And that is why it's something that is hated by a lot.

00:49:10--> 00:49:17

And one should not consider it or resort to it unless it's the last resort. And unless it's the lesser of two evils.

00:49:18--> 00:49:36

But it's something that he rejoices over, in fact, sometimes pushes members of a household or people who are involved in a relationship, right and people who are married, he pushes them to do things that will cause breakup, right things that one may not be able to tolerate.

00:49:38--> 00:49:41

Because this is one of the things that that that he looks forward to
