it's evening I'm
able to behave
dean of adult, this is about child law will be my final session. So but
superb of catching them off before they get animals was the livestock we can consume camels, sheep, sheep and goats
the reason it's mentioned this way, the reason the show I haven't talked about this the reason the show is called and sometimes there's many reasons why the show is called or given a name.
Sometimes the name does not point to the main topic and the central theme of the solar directly.
Sometimes it's indirect, and oftentimes an indirect message is more profound and hits home.
And last week, we explained why the concept of an Ham was mentioned. Why, like slaughter of animals,
which animals to be eaten, how to distribute the slaughtered animal who gets what share in that slaughtering an animal.
For other than the name of the last panel? How does this fit into Allah introducing himself emphasizing his oneness, that he's the only one who deserves to be worshipped? Why, speaking about the existence of Allah
refuting those who have any arguments against the oneness of his existence, his sole right to be worshipped? Why does Allah mentioned 50 issues now? jurisprudence? What to eat, what not to eat? The names of the Name of Allah as mentioned upon slaughter or not? Distribution of the pieces of the animal being slaughtered, and also a reference to the people who worship other than Allah, where they kill their children and sacrifice their children sounds to be out completely out of reason, completely illogical and very unlikely. How come a human being commits such a heinous act?
But Allah here is saying, I was shocked because the whole song was about proofs, proofs, evidence, counter arguments, all of those against belief. Plus showing that belief always translates into a Sharia
show Sharia means legislation assisted to guide behavior to guide personal and social behavior. That's what a Sharia is. So for example, Western law is a Sharia
is a Sharia law says to the prophet of innocence, okay, that's a good guy that should be it mean an emery factor there, we have made you upon a system of legislation a system of behavior.
Any system in the Arabic language any legislative system
is called Sharia. So Western law is Sharia Canadian law is actually in the Arabic language, Sharia.
So why does so Allah is saying here, every belief, whether someone says, I don't believe that there is a Creator or I don't believe Allah is the Creator, okay? And I'm going to lead a good life impossible,
was saying impossible. Why? Because at either belief is going to be translated into Sharia.
So believe any kind anything you believe in will definitely translate into a wave light into behavior. So if your data is incorrect, or and is improper, you will definitely legislate you will definitely come with a system of behavior that would reflect the absurdity in the update.
So Allah says those who worshipped other than Allah who deny the existence of Allah associated partners with Allah, Allah says about them or Canada and because the yen indicated in ministry Kena Butler, I will add him Schumacher, Leonardo home when he will be so Allah He has been losses averse, the idols the false gods, that those used to believe in those used to worship. They beautified
In the killing of their own children,
any update is going to beautify a certain number of actions.
And if the update is correct and sound, the actions will be corrected.
And if the update has issues, it's going to be translated into actions, especially in legislation. I'll give you an example from Islamic history.
With the Hawaii rich appeared, during the reign of Illuminati about it strongly, we don't even have it all it was a mural was the
sum of the companions were traveling in Iraq
which is our competitors, tabby.
And they were caught
a group militant group from collaborative
control control, they stopped, we said, Who are you? What are your needs to police?
So, the most knowledgeable among this group Tapani was a person with knowledge and wisdom.
we are pagans,
obviously, like his Companions are like, what is that? What are you talking about? But they remain silent?
So the Hawaii bridge tickets, where are you coming to? They said, We're going to such as a city said we'll make sure you're safe as you're passing through.
The delivery the
sixth comparison, what did you say? Well, you should be keen.
They said if we told them we're Muslims, they consider Muslims and other than them to be kuffaar they would kill us.
But if we said we wish we can, and solid Tober Allah says, we're in a huddle minimal shakiness to jockey for
tennis, Michael, from a minute.
Sort of Toba.
My says, And if some of them actually came, or one of them actually can, seeks your help and guidance and protection.
Give them your protection, until they hear the word of Allah,
then deliver them to their safe destination.
So I told him that we should have kids, so they have to play this verse on us, because we thought they were Muslims, they would automatically kill us. Why? Because they consider the Muslims only to be the 100. Other than that, then they shouldn't be killed. We are apostates for them and the rest of themselves.
So that shows you the absurdity of their Abida how it translates into why the prophets of salaam says about the origin, the Hadith, authentic hadith, to Luna and an Islam where
they killed the people of Islam, the personnel foretold the coverage, what they're going to do is they will kill the Muslims. And they will leave the non Muslims
killed the Muslims and they will leave those
islands not only their own island, and I think they will leave the pagans will not just the Muslims there and those things.
So the shows is an example of how our data translates into an improper our data will definitely bring about absurd legislation or system of legislation. system of behavior. So Allah is here is clarifying that we want that, to claim that, you know, I just don't believe in God, but I lead a very good and ethical life impossible.
For somebody that is going to lead to false.
That's how humans aren't designed. It's just like you have pro you have a computer Although humans are not completely like computers, but the analogy humans, if you have a computer and you have a software that has a big glitch or issue
if you install that software, you definitely is the results you're going to get the sales and accounting software. You definitely the glitch is definitely going to show up in the results. You're gonna get wrong numbers with some.
You can't say, Well, no, I will. I'm a nice peaceful software. I have Yes, this issue but I lead a very good life. And the numbers are not going to show they're not going to be right to be an issue. So exactly. This is exactly what happens with the
Humans if you don't have the true leader, your external behavior will definitely have some nonsensical stuff. But you won't be able to see it. Why? Because again, Okay, daddy can the same sort of mechanic as a young man equal to you
and us we have beautified for every nation, their deeds, Allah says at the beginning of salt enamel in the medina Yalitza Yet
those who don't believe in the actual, we have beautified their deeds from them
and beautify their actions, they're blind to the absurdity of their actions or their choices that certain any legal system
pull yourself out of that culture out of that system and look at it from a neutral mind, you will find so many illogical, unbelievably absurd stuff.
If nerf to more, it's inevitable. Otherwise, if they try to remove these things, they would have contradiction.
They will, there will be no internal consistency will be contradiction in the same system and won't be congruent.
Look at any other like to consult anyone who knows the law very well. And see where
it's other than the word of Allah other than the guidance of Allah will be a lot of inhumane
funny stuff, unbelievable, illogical stuff.
But that does not get the attention. This is not good at Salah saying look at those people just think we just want you to be you know, other than Allah. And we just got people in life as these gods this kind of worship is gonna lead them to what to sell first.
The problem with times, anytime, any age, when it's the holes in it will only become visible
either decades or centuries.
For example, let's just take a fairly modern example, the prohibition in the US in the 1930s. The prohibition was about people look at that and laugh now.
People look at this law of the state and laugh. In many of the states in the United States, especially in the south, the more conservative the population was, they had the prohibition law. If you sold or consumed drugs,
you were punished sometimes by the capital punishment by death penalty.
But don't capsule and selling alcohol, execute apps?
Execute them. And this was abolished a few years it created so much trouble that it was opposed. So ironically, there were cases that were actually recorded, where a person today was caught selling alcohol in one of the states and he got killed the following day.
People were selling alcohol because on that day, the end of that day, the law was abolished. The following day, people were selling alcohol and they were okay.
So that shows you sometimes how, how humans are there. Or by the way, there were many laws in different places that are so like, unbelievably illogical. But again, they don't get the limelight, they don't get attention. They don't get highlighted, obviously, because these systems will perpetuate themselves. And they try to push this to the side and not not not bring attention to them.
There are countries like
I forgot what it is in the UK. There's a house that was not occupied. Let's say you have a house.
And you did not occupy the house, like you had a second house, you did not occupy it or rent it out for five years.
If someone after five years, someone breaks into the house. They live in it, they can claim it to themselves.
Yeah, this is some of the remains of the World War Two. And it's still a lot.
It doesn't get highlighted, but actually in the 80s and 90s. They had some issues with that.
Is that real? Well, that's actually
so there are things that don't get highlighted again. But any law any any any source of data is definitely going to yield you know, improper implementation or standards of behavior and legislation. So that's why Allah Santana is mentioning here for key issues in a surah that is heavily about our data about to hate about worshipping Allah alone.
the principles of exposing any kind of false data and this source is an encyclopedia and is a system for refuting any false idea that gives the principles of refuting and responding and exposing any false idea whether it's atheism polytheism pantheism, anything.
It has the principles and this is why people are dealing now with the ACE atheist movement
saltan should be their foundation should be their base, there's so much to unlock from it and this is why the Quran is quiet
the Quran is an endless mine.
There's always answers for you just need to dig deeper and get get the The Scholars say there's a hadith this weekend. But it seems to be a statement from the loving spirit to lean on a different level. So with that thought the Agile the wonders of the world has never come to an end.
But it must be
the one to always be treasures at keeps yielding. It's very fruitful.
So what we need to do now since we mentioned this, we look we want to look at the conclusion then wrap everything together with solids and
there's three verses three consecutive versus unsorted first number 151 50 to 153. Probably the most famous and solid and
most things sorted and
and these summarizes servic legislation
summarize instead of legislation Allah says school to Roma how
to shoot a movie he shame morbid. Why did they in Arizona, what happens to the community and also Kokomo? Well,
what happened to the facility helps us do that we have that ECOSOC behavior under
some scholars compared these verses to the 10 commandments,
there's actually a lot in common, because it seems that the 10 commandments were some of the
truth that remained your recordings of the Scripture. So Allah says, Save All Muhammad to them Come, let me relate to you what Allah made. These are the principles foundations of Allah
Maha model, and naturally will be issuing and associating partners with a one. That's the biggest Hello, this is the one is installed in the server that ALLAH does not forgive, for person dies and we should if there is no forgiveness for that, since it's in the hellfire, what will want it they need
to you treat your parents kindly, nicely, do not violate their rights, when I talk to the community
and do not kill your children out of poverty and back, we provide for you and for them
not even approach do not even need
improper actions or vices whether they are hidden or apparent.
Whether they are the clear ones external ones, or they are the hidden, subtle ones, the hidden subtle ones like what the Hadith of the prophets last, Claudius now where the prophets last name says and dunya the messenger Salam said this dunya are the types of people in this dunya offered in a sense, I want you to know
where I'm where anyone for who are human feel Minho via
a person to whom Allah has given wealth and knowledge. So this person uses this wealth in all avenues with avenues of good deeds, spending on poor spending on family helping out this building msgid supporting a cause, etc.
Well, Roger, an editor Hola. Hyndman will unmute him and the person to whom Allah has given knowledge understanding but no no wealth
for your whole
know Canada NDB through Mithuna Heather,
if I had such money, I would do the same goodness. The prophets of salaam says for whom activities
these people will get similar.
Someone spent all this wealth. The other person just said sincerely. If I had this money, I would spend the same. They would get because of the
tension especially with get similar reward.
Why don't you don't have a lot of man and when I'm new to here in men following a few goofy lady,
when I brought Michelle, a person to him, Allah has given wealth but not understanding of the deal, no email. The person is spending it in every evil can making sense buying stuff or purchasing other people, wasteful stuff, etc.
Why don't you roll
them up to
someone who told me not to have wealth nor this understanding of the dnn an email, he says, though, can
be harder if I effect.
If I had wealth like this person, I would do the same. I wouldn't commit this committee. So by this all the power
behind this theory, earning the same sense, that person spend the money in evil What about this person? He didn't, he didn't do it, he just wished for it. So you
see, this is one of
these are apparent sins and these are hidden sins. This person sins, his apparent the other one is just speaking to himself. Right? No, one thing that someone has in his heart, he didn't even say that to himself. It's just an inner conversation.
And what same sales, same level of sins. This is, these are the hidden sins, most people are very careful about visible sales.
But most serious sins is what they are. These are extremely serious, but
the inner sins are even more serious, the hidden invisible sales. And these like what first ship person could commit could fall under how no one knows. They have doubts about a lot.
Or they have improper thoughts about Allah.
Or someone, for example, hates Islam hates themselves.
Someone hates the truth.
Someone who wishes they can commit Zina, right and always contemplating it. And then the quote, the Hadith, where the prophets of salaam says, in the Hadith, also quoted by Bukhari and the prophets of sepsis in Allah, if you own it, and had better to behave in a
manner, that can be alternative that allows pantallas forgiving from
their inner speech,
or what their selves spoke to them about, unless they speak it or act upon it. I think as long as I'm contemplating this sin in my head and not acting upon it,
on court, there's no simulator, or as long as I have envy towards this person, and I wish that the but I don't say anything, I don't do anything to harm them. I'm cool.
That's that's like a person like this is full of themselves. Because these are sins of the heart.
You know, sins of the heart is sins, the prophets Allah was saying that.
Swizzels behavior must be here,
which is the speaker response to these are the possible forms and passes through your mind
to do this,
if you carry on, carried away with the idea that you entertain it, you How does any sense? Be careful? The misunderstanding of that hadith has caused many people to get their hearts rotten in evil.
The moment you have something like this desist, the fact that they're often saying the fact that ideas go through your mind you entertain a thought for a minute.
You have no control over that. So there's no sense which is
when you keep entertaining the idea and reflecting upon it and considering it, your heart is engaged in saying
I actually scholars like given to me epidemia says
he says committing a sin is so evil and bad. But he says but if you don't commit it, but you keep contemplating that metric, and you imagine yourself committing it, it could be worse, because it can ruin your heart and system.
Okay, so this clarification is important. This is what these are the hidden sins. All since all these is held as a Muslim you're supposed to align yourself completely with good to the best of your ability.
What I took to the next level have to vary from south
to north, not kill.
schools do not kill people. Unless there is a just reason according to a specific law and everything. There's a whole system
That, for obviously aggressors for murderers for criminals.
This is what Allah advises you with. So that you may
Then second follow up is 152 When I talk to your team in nebulosity here as a young boy I should have done well for gala would it be sad because theta can be from something else, what either put it on 13 Or when it can be handed off from that ECOSOC
and do not approach the wealth of an orphan, except that except with that, which increases the benefits until the often reaches an age of responsibility, they can take care of themselves.
And when you weigh up selling and buying a new way upstream because they used to weigh up goods right before we just
then can different of something that also houses we will not ask the person
we the more or more than what they can. So it shows that it's not legislation is within our capacity to abide by it. Allah does not overburden us. Everything Allah commanded us with is within our capacity.
What either and if you speak and speak the truth and speak with justice, even if the person involved is related to you,
will be helpful and remain truthful to Allah and your covenant agreement. This is what Allah advises you so that you
may be reminded that Allah says when
you study enough activity, whether the individual is so good
at their medical certain behavior, I look at the taco and this is a total of this is my path, straight path, follow it do not follow other paths, lest they take you away from his path. This is what Allah advises us to maintain.
This covers legislation in principle,
and you to get back if anyone tells you he is not. That's Islam, some of the special
details have their own circumstances. You cannot address every specific situation. In an error generalizations you need to have a good appreciation of the situation. When it comes to details.
Why does gestation the principles of this country gestation one case belief in Allah that's what it leads to justice, kindness difference. So believe in Allah, the Oneness of Allah worship Allah leads to being good to parents,
justice and all of your affairs, not murdering an innocent soul
acting with justice and selling and buying giving people the rights and when you speak you speak the truth could be more work with people to know that this is this is a human business best humans can reach and this is what some calls Islamic legislation of course to every virtue
because every feature and if there is anyone who has any criticism against Islam crustacean they must have it out of context, in the sense they do not appreciate
Okay, Allah someone's gonna come close the saw here, we want to highlight these because this basically
Subhan Allah, Allah gives us the surah he tells us how to implement the law says for example, you know, sometimes you read a book, it gives you an explanation about something, then at the end of the chapter puts you puts for you action steps, right, or points of implementation, Allah gives us the law summarizes the swimmer in a way of implementation Allah says, which is actually the wordings for what of a deity listed in other islands that we start Salah with have to say Allahu Akbar, since pellicle,
you can say
one of them had been the winner, coming back to me.
There's a third and the third wedding version which is in here, which is what you had in the difference
which became our temporary fix to the one who deleted the absent the earth, what on the stream path and wealthy people.
In nasality, my prayer will also keep my worship Allah here in my life, my living on my mighty my death. My Dying is for Allah who is in the hands of Allah and for me, I dedicated tool. I use it to worship and devotion to Allah. They helped me naturally connect us with early government this sort of commanded with an eye on the first of the claims is here.
This is a way of life. There's not just words we say. This is something to live by. Why says say oh Muhammad
come in and say, Oh,
my goodness, okay, my worship or my rituals that I do
everything in my life.
This has double meaning. First meaning is, life and death are in the hands of Allah, my life comes from Allah on death comes from I got this one meaningful will be your most thorough. And also another meaning which is also intended that as I live my life, I'm going to live my life for Allah I'm going to dedicate my life completely solely for
my life will be for Allah.
And my death, when it comes to my death, is going to be also
going to go through death, I know I am going to be returning
for Allah, the Lord of the woods, that surely can always know gardeners, this is what I'm commanded. And I am the first of those things and the first
meeting I'm going to put myself first I'm going to be among the first to say yes, immediately.
This is an implementation of you live this way. But you wake up this morning, every morning you wake up you say
have to live
by them. Really insured person waking up, or priests due to Allah, who revived us Buddhist life gave us a life today, after causing us to die at night, while at initial and eventually we will wake up to him will be resurrected to him. On the day of judgment.
We look at this day, it's a gift from Allah time given to where you can win this time to get more critical than that to get
this will you beat up about eating your breakfast you should be getting closer to Allah how you eat with intention.
If you go to the bookstore to simulate talk about these, these verses, that's what they talk about, is the intention.
You eat, I eat with the intention of strengthening my body in order to function well so I can worship Allah can do with things that will get me closer to Allah, God is the lucky me this body as a as a trust, I'm going to take good care of it.
I'm not going to deprive it, I'm not going to give it more than it needs, I'm going to take good care of it. So that it's a tool. It's an instrument to help me watch.
So that's why I eat I eat with purpose.
I go to my work, every word has value with it, unless it's Halloween.
Everyone has fun, are you giving some service to people otherwise people want to invest in
And that's what it should be. It can bring you closer to what you're doing your work.
You're getting paid. But do it from the spirit of being a good person
who embodies that goodness that Allah taught us and extends goodness to the creation the prophets also that says
I have been nursing it Allah has given us the people a lot of the most other those who are most beneficial to us will add more value to others.
So if your work has value, it's actually enough to push them to Allah this is by this implement in wanna hear your mobility my life
and that's why the prophecies and M says
had to look at your Bible Matthew, he said
the prophets Islam says even the mouthful food, food, a person feeds their family. It's written as
much reward for
sadaqa here doesn't mean charity means reward
against getting reward from Allah subhanaw taala for feeding your family
in doing that what is called Love Somebody says God is love with me that position a lot of us that and this is something that brings me closer to what we're doing with that awareness.
You don't need to be reminded as a vice president. That's the real that's the reality of Victrola. Allah is always on your mind. Because honestly to penalize particles penalize me when you're reading a book essential.
There's no remembrance of remembering Allah is that everything you do is meant to is a lead to everything. And the Prophet SAW Selim says given the process
Murphy will do a course on
intimate sexual desire
is pretty good,
isn't it? I hadn't heard yet.
But it will be
a person who is fulfilling their desire and getting reward systems as well. Hello, Ada. And Rob, if you held on to it, he was
an effective advocate either
offset whatever the person fulfills their desire in
a relationship outside of them.
Are they going to be earnest in? Yes? He said yes. Likewise, if the person does it the right way.
And that landway degree
could be better than that.
Right, the Blue Devil probably among the great
among the most knowledgeable of the companions, the process of the MCU,
the master of scholars, and he died young. He died in his early 30s.
But he accumulated so much knowledge.
He said, Allah indeed Attersee Bono Mati, come back to Cebu. He says, I seek and expect toward from Allah. As I'm sleeping, just as I do expect reward from Allah when in my waking hours, because it has week ago what he's already doing things good things, ritualistic worship, any good deed any good thing.
But he says, Not only that, even in my sleep, like why has SONET meter with these meters running
is counted as adding notables.
Now, you can go to sleep with purpose.
This buddy is a trust, Allah gave it to me, I'm gonna take care of it. So that it serves me as a useful instrument and doing the good things because if you don't look after your body, you will not be able to function
or perform. So when I optimize my performance, my worship by taking care of my body and going to see
you can you sleep, like you're snoring in our NL rewards, counting, counting to
see the beauty of the message of aliens. That's what the paintings,
everything, everything. By the way, every good thing by every good thing, by definition,
is a weight.
Every good thing is originally there to bring you closer to home. The problem is that people do these things mindlessly themselves.
But, again, let's just take another perspective, good things
are here in this world. Good deeds are in this world. Not just because they're good, just like that. What good means they get us where we Muslims have a distinction.
Because people generally speaking, say, Well, that's good, that's bad. That's out of context. This is an incomplete picture.
What is good essentially,
is other things Allah created to prepare you.
This what good is evil,
are things that are there that will take people away from
Allah, because Allah put in humans this judgment, which is part of
that they can tell that intuitively to a certain extent. People just call them good and bad. But people don't have the full story full story in Islam is that, hey, there's nothing like good and it's like an island. Or it's
not, it's good. Why? Because Allah designed that as a way that people can or as an elevator, as an escalator that brings people closer to Allah. That's why good things are here in this world. And not just good things just like that by themselves. There's nothing like this.
Things are created into this world for a reason and all the reason always boils down about anything
boils down to the test humans getting closer or farther.
So as a human being, everything in your life is by definition by default,
as well is a vehicle
if you are mindful of Allah,
finding the root cause you already do. You're mindful of Allah as your as your ultimate purpose. So everything you're doing it you're doing it for that purpose.
You know, people who are for profit, cool, obsessed with making money.
Wherever you take them, they always think business right? Even on vacation
Even on vacation,
they always see opportunities, business opportunities, wherever, why? Because they're always mindful that God is One money profit.
So they don't need to make intention for profit. Automatically everything is aligned after profit. So they have intention for profit.
This system was designed for you to worship Allah. So if you have Allah as your ultimate purpose, then automatically you're going to look at the world as opportunities to get
this is how you're going to see the world this is how the world is colored for you. But if you see things as objects only
when you focus on Allah is not sure.
Does that make sense? Or am I speaking to
you sometimes like,
there's like, there's nothing that is good, just like that. There's no good by the way, like the concept of good is divine
means it's related to Allah
means it's conducive to coming closer to Allah. That's what good actually means.
And the definition that sort of secular ideology has about good and bad is an incomplete story.
It's an incomplete story, you don't have the full picture.
Because if you take again, if you take Allah if you take the divine being the creator,
good and evil, lose their meaning.
Because good and evil are relative terms, good for why
there's no absolute
value as good by itself.
It's good in relation to Allah. Tradition, bring it that's, again, we Muslims have lost this. Why?
Because we're trained in what we call secular secular has nothing to do with religion, right and regions here. But secular is here. But we don't realize that this has infiltrated even though Islamic education that it made it only the coration
but it has ruined the very basic elements of what it means good and bad, good and bad, good means it, it's something that brings you to Allah has the potential to bring you to Allah.
So if you're seeking Allah, you're gonna find everything around you, as a vehicle needs you to. It's just like someone you know, if a city is very well served, and you want to get from point A to B, you can take the
you can take the subway, you can take the bus, you can take a taxi, you can even take you know, these helicopters, let's say etc.
I think they tried something new. Oh, please. They tried to helicopter and do.
So she said, Everything Wherever you look, this many means of transportation, all of them are accessible and easy. In the world. We are actually like this, everything invites you to ally with youth says to you, like you know, in third world countries, you go to this bus station, at the bus station, there's this person they call them, I don't know, my country control.
Like they say, like they go into the city of Damascus, Damascus, Damascus, Damascus, Damascus. And the old days, this is what the whole world was like this. Actually everything in the world so much goodness, says Come Come to gender come to gender come to Allah. But because our hearts
have been pushed to the side, we're not hearing that.
We're looking at things in objective ways. Right? Protective, meaning we have severed them from their condition.
That's not how things
this is just like, you know, we can get fruits now see where they come from thinking fruits just pop up like that, I will tell you.
So that's what in personality.
This is paradise.
This is paradise.
During the company of Allah all the time, what is everything is
everything. And by the way, this is the meaning of some of the righteous people. Again, who would use that we use that which loosely and they would say
As you some of them are good people like I've always held and he's funny.
Sorry, I've always named the voicemail how long it was made out, oh, it was around the fourth century. And he was going to be wiped out as soon right. He was one of his soul
in terms of any war strong against the people of Britain and will claim explained his book and as I say, in this manner, as they say
It is both half an hour away. He says, Antara Allah have you permission that you see Allah and everything. This is figurative language
Everything for install. So this is what is first, this is the conclusion of salt. So let's scrub certain an app together and show it in context. So what an app is about Allah.
And generations indicate
that sort of an owl was revealed all at once.
And this is very rare.
The launch tools are usually
sent down in segments over long periods of time, but shorter than average is about
almost three pages
was sent all at once. There's one the ratio there is weakness in it. And this shows how
are the competitors to receive the one but it was mentioned that most of them Ceylon, many scholars, they said the narration is weak, but it's very likely that this thing actually happened to sleep. So I knew this was if the car should exit soon when the profits are received, so that being emitted into the competitors, he said, consider filing a lawsuit Today I received the first without or saw also recited
in its entirety about this must have about 23 pages.
I'm delighted my support
is among these commands when the prompts are finished, and they also have a claw Heidrick using Viva la Shala you recite it to you
he recited the household.
So some of the scholars have commented on establishing said there is weakness. But again it was mentioned by many of the schools of Texier the acceptance some of them commented they said this is because
for the believer they open the hearts to
the hearing there was plenty written already
and this is something always mentioned by many schools
many schools that are new and I
I can't I can't remember exactly what's going on to this but they said several of them honestly three letters. And I mentioned this you can recite the Quran
with your tongue
and that's it. Your mind is absent
and it happens with us our Salah you don't know how you recite it even if you don't know how he recited salt is at the point you even wonder at the end of the data set. In fact whether or not
it happens, especially if you know it very well. I remember
a while ago when I first visited Estee Lauder Salim is in Egypt and six mystic in the house. It's a very beautiful question. But it's like a museum. There's so much calligraphy, golden stuff. Like it's it's breathtaking. It's a piece of art. So when therefore Jumaane. And I went early, about maybe an hour before and I said
I started reading sorted.
I'm looking at at the was lying. I was trying to trance I woke up.
I said from encounter, you're just really fired up before the admin admin outside the handle that you should have committed by the tip here, the last verse In surah. And I thought I just skipped all these pages were literally the sound we felt, you know, sometimes you go to sleep,
and you wake up the next morning already has, it's like you blinked and it was gone. It was just like that I just started the surah. And then I was at the end and I thought I skipped everything I made the mistake that I look at the time. And about 15 minutes already passed. And I realize that I read the whole thorough while just looking at the clickers not being aware of it on autopilot.
that's the basic level of reciting, reciting with your with your tongue. But that's it. It's just phonemes, right? phonetic sounds.
But then another level, which is higher level C recites.
And they're paying attention, they're reflecting. They're trying to absorb the meanings. Absorb the meanings, understand what that means, and try to reflect internalize that as a higher level and it's very good. And if we reach that level, actually that's really great. If most of our experience with the Quran is characterized by this absolutely great achievement, but then there's the third level.
The third level.
Someone who recites the Quran, and the experience feels as though
Tang is expressing
when they recite these verses, it doesn't feel like they are taking it from the outside and it feels to hold on to what's going on or giving expression to
as it's received is speaking,
it's giving, expressing giving voice to what's going on.
So they said this is the highest.
This is the why is now harder
to get this what you want.
that's how we want to use recycled. It's how we want to reset. So the Quran here is about sort of an onion, it's about the Oneness of Allah subhanaw taala. Then it addresses different
violations of this either atheism, again, paganism, Schilke, associating partners with Allah doubts about Allah false beliefs about law, false notions are made up of the law, it addresses all of them. And it gives beautiful things. One of the most important things about belief and apply here is who believes it, who doesn't believe you have two people receiving the same information one believes or doesn't believe, and both probably understand it intellectually? What's the difference? The differences in the dynamics of
the differences? It's not a knowledge of the differences in how the response
doesn't respond with its healthy natural state? Or did it leave that state and thus stopped functioning properly, and thus is not receptive.
So it's not experiencing
that this is what guidance from Scarlets Owens down to
this is what it boils down to. And this is why Allah subhanaw taala many people think, you know, only some of the disbelievers get a chance. Let's go to the beginning of slowly mentioned that previously. Were lost Putana talks about what's going to happen on the Day of Judgment. Verse number 2728. We mentioned that, but it's a very important point. Because it helps us understand what what is the dynamics of guidance? Allah says 27 Well, I will tell you there won't be 498 and I can either be it for me now an economy that no meaning.
Consider this honestly give this as seriously, Allah says, and only if you could see when they are exposed, have given a show of the Hellfire.
On the Day of Judgment, now they see the Hellfire for what it is. See if all realities are exposed in front of them.
And they would say, Yeah, later than what we wish holy if we could be returned
to that life. And if this happens, we would never disbelieve, we'll definitely believe and we would be for the believers.
when a what do I do
what they used to hide now became apparent to them.
And if they were to be returned after this exposure, if they were to be returned to the worldly life, they would still return to the disbelief
they saw the Hellfire Allah is saying they saw the hellfire and if they were to be returned after seeing the hellfire, that was things
have convinced convincing it's
it's a disease of the heart. And this disease of the heart isn't you're not born with it.
Yes, your upbringing might Karachi God. But Allah put in every human being
this natural system that seeks spiritual thought to bring the heart in its natural state, just like when you get
physically ill before the body has antibodies, it has a whole system that brings it back to health. You also have a spiritual system that brings you back to health. The only thing that stops it, the only thing that hinders it is things you do just like for example, if if you have a diet that is full of
sugar, right, it's going to suppress your immune system. So your immunity will be weak. So when there is a bug or there is a virus, you're very susceptible to it and you will be hit hard by it. Why not? Because
is Oh, that's the normal state No, because you are doing something that is suppressing your immune system that is weakening and
causing it to be dysfunctional.
It's not in its natural state, same thing spiritually. There's always parallels between your physical state and your spiritual status. There's always a lot so that's why it's a very good analogy.
Because you were Allah calls you know, in the in the heart of names state when the heart is not in its original state, Allah was a disease of the disease of the body, it's an abnormal state, same thing, spiritually, there is something that always there's an immune system that always brings you back. And if you're not going back to that state of health,
then you are consuming something that has been pressing your spiritual immune system, what is this
false knowledge feeding
and the Soyuz improvement disease
your spiritual immune system, so your heart that does not get back to you.
And we usually do this by consuming so much.
And when we approach something like the one we approach it with desire, a personal agenda
with instruments is for the people.
which is not is not wrong anyone or does not do.
atoms we think just is nothing at all.
But Allah put like,
the odds are in your favor, to believe that people disbelieve and end up leaving this world as disbelievers despite, and in spite of all of the momentum that Allah placed in their life, to bring them to.
So Allah is saying, if these people go to the hellfire, see it with their own eyes experiences, if they are brought back to this life, after having this solid knowledge and personal experience, there is still disbelief, right? This shows you that this life is designed by Allah to be a perfect test to expose what your heart really is. And again,
if someone's heart is corrupt, we cannot attribute it back. Although there might be some reasons, like reported physical reasons that upbringing, cultural influences, etc. But the heart can never remain corrupted, unless the person has evil in them. And they brought this evil, they chose that evil, and they favored it over the good, has to be,
has to be.
But again, humans actually says in the physical world, we saw secular Muslims, all of us, most of us are a great extent secular Muslims.
We believe in,
in a, what's called naturalism, the physical world, right as if this is the only reality available. By the way, we are fanatics about this, what we don't realize we have small intestine, we don't realize we're functioning according to us.
And that's why we're learning so much he has not benefited us. We tried to do much so much.
Because there's something we take it as someone who's whose diet is messed up, and is causing so much damage and inflammation to their body, and they're taking all this medication.
And it's not helping them down.
Because you're not dealing with the root cause. You're not dealing with
a lot law made it simple, but we complicate it because we don't have the courage to really look where the problem is addressed.
We need radical honesty ourselves. We need this transparency. But I mean, that's scary. It takes a lot of guts to do that. And we all scared mostly we think it was just to actually jump up and get
you could really have a serious thing.
And again, the thing is the life force always draws you towards health, physically and spiritually. So just get out of its way the true faith. You think go I do faith you don't do anything you just get out and scream. It's your natural state Allah has already been nothing
Okay, so so this is the dynamic of guidance so Allah says in the soul again, each one for
And then you read the lovely idea of initializer list. So if Allah wants to guide someone, Allah opens expand their chest to history first of all 125
That's the reality of guidance. Guidance is from Allah. And by the way it's given to everyone.
Only those who refuse and that's why the prophets isms in the Hadith collected while Buhari couldn't look
every one of you wanted to practice except for those who refuse in a queue proactively refuse you are on the way to gender you would like you're on a roller coaster to gender literally.
And the only way for you not to enter Jeunesse jumped off that
and most people are jumping off now
this concept of a loved one fuses Tetsujin prophecies I'm sitting atop the halogen
what follows over obeys me to Jana
this will be his me, they have a future.
Why simple way to generic simply
put on the track
and the train is carrying you then all you need to do is just stop jumping off the wagon.
But again, when you're involved in something, you don't realize you're doing it.
You don't realize you're doing it. And it's important to understand this we humans are creatures of habit, when you do something, so much becomes a habit you don't realize you're doing you do it as reflex, you don't realize you're doing it right you lose consciousness, you're doing it. You're not if you're trading any for example, any physical activity like martial arts, for example, or moves or as the Tennis or Football etc, you will find that you will only say you start escaping.
Like an adult like me trying to learn sleeping. When you see like a young, young young man on a scale or children's skates, they make it look so easy, right? Piece of cake, and you get on it on that
you're gonna lose balance automatically.
In a way, not because it's the escape makes you fall.
Because you're doing things to make you fall. And you will if someone is training you want to take the skate is a good example. If someone is training, they'll say, hey, just stand still. You're okay. But actually, you're so scared, you're going to move your body in ways that will make you fall.
And you don't realize you're doing that the soul the reflexive, you don't even realize I'm doing this same thing with boxing, for example, you will do the one move,
they will and is causing them like to be punched in the face. For example, to have a weak defense, you find the coach will tell them, you stop them anything else I'm not doing it, you are doing something with your hand.
And then they will bring it to their attention. That's a good coach coaches will bring them to the group that to their attention that, oh, I'm actually doing that.
So they will raise your awareness that's good coaching, raising awareness, they actually do that.
And then you can see that he will start reversing and undoing it and then
you realize that you were actually sabotaging your own game. That's exactly how it is.
But what does it take awareness, this is why you will find a lot in terms of hustling in the Quran hafla you're not aware of things you are already engaged in. You are taking yourself away from Jana, you are putting yourself farther from Allah. And you're not realizing you're actually doing that. Why? Because you're in the state of God's law. You're not reading yourself. You're not studying yourself, you're not paying attention.
What you want is your cover. Your cover is an awakening you wake up to the facts. When you develop this awareness. They say awareness is transformative.
Sometimes reading some of the biggest changes in life happen not because you can learn something too complex. It's just
a simple thing you do. Then you start to eliminate it and do it. And you realize oh everything is already in place. But you were

You it's been hidden for you, it's been hidden from you.
And a daylight has shined
that you were the darkness, you are the cause of the darkness.
That shows that this is I mean, this sort of shows this when we say, Allah says in the Quran, in Canada there
is no guide, whoever you can give them the idea you can communicate the truth to them. But first of all guys, it's Allah, even you when you feel guided and when you are actually guided. It's not your intelligence. It's not your goodness, that guidance is from Allah.
It gives you the ability, you can't attribute guidance to yourself. You can't you don't even own it. It's from Allah.
Allah and the people of Ghana, they say as we will come to us Charla next week, so it's not off, they will say that hamdulillah Emily had an idea that
they should praise be to God guided us through this, had it not been for Allah will not be guided
just to us. But again, Allah is fan

They have to get out of the way do too many things. And very, like things that are way out of the human nature.
It's hard work to get to the point.
When you are caught up in a system, and you subscribe to it.
You get used to it desensitized, you don't realize you are doing it.
it's very counterintuitive. It's pretty simple. But again, that's how we can understand. So this is what the solar is about. And as we said, it shows that guidance is not an intellectual thing. It's deeper than that. And thus, the best way to get guidance is to ask all the senses
the clearer your heart, the purer your heart is in seeking the truth.
The reason people accept this guidance, although they have some good intention is that somehow
they like you. You have like
