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

Hamdu lillahi rabbil Hornstein I want to stop Phil Horner, who will be learning and surely and fusina We'll see ltr Marina mija the love of Allah medulla who will make your blood for the head, Shadow Allah Allah, Allah who will actually color Why should you under Muhammad Abdullah who was all who were bad

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

Allama Salli wa salam ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali he also be selling them to Salim and Kathy Allah.

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

We start now with Surratt Ibrahim Surat Ibrahim, Salah is named after Prophet Ibrahim Ali Salam. Because towards the end, Allah spent Allah mentions the example of Ibrahim alayhi salam as the the role model to be followed to be followed.

00:00:50--> 00:01:05

The Salah starts again with three letters, the three separate letters, I'll hold off, Al mcoc, para la, la. And we spoke previously about this and we said that the meaning of these

00:01:07--> 00:01:31

letters and what's intended by them, the ultimate meaning is known to Allah subhanaw taala. But scholars of Tafseer they have figured out some wisdoms and some points behind some of the some of the surest studying with such letters. And we said amongst the most obvious, is the fact that the Quran is made of simple Arabic letters Alif Lam, meme and if

00:01:32--> 00:01:51

her mean these letters, and this Quran that is miraculous, and humans cannot come up with anything like it. It is made from from these simple Arabic letters, it's pure Arabic language. And there's a challenge there for someone to come up with something similar to the Quran using any of the Arabic alphabet.

00:01:52--> 00:02:23

And last Valentinus starts to the surah clearly that it's about the Quran, it's about the message, and the mission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So this surah really talks about the mission of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we will see everything that's mentioned the Surah Ibrahim actually addresses the mission of the Prophet SAW Selim from some angle. So Allah still starts by saying Kitab and Angela who illegally took region nurse Amina Bulu, Mati Illinois TV evening, Rob beam, in surat al Aziz al Hamid.

00:02:24--> 00:03:06

So Allah is talking about the book, which is the Quran Kitab Anza. Now, a book that we revealed or we sent down unto you, or Muhammad, so we know the Quran is sent from Allah. The Quran is sent from Allah subhanho wa taala, down onto Earth on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And there's an indication here that the Quran the Quran is from Allah subhanaw taala meaning it's the words of Allah. It's the words of Allah subhanaw taala not like the Morteza and some deviant sects claim that the Quran is a creation. The Quran was a creation, that's a false idea. That's a false belief. It was started mainly by the martyrs era. And

00:03:08--> 00:03:53

and there was a big issue about this, there was a big issue. So the Quran was originated by Allah as his own words, as his own words, and that's what we Muslims believe upon. Because the Muslim scholars are the scholars of Anderson they have a consensus Ah, man, that statement or anyone who claims or says that the Quran is a creation, this statement in itself is Cofer is a blast is blasphemy. It constitutes Kofa within itself. So we know the Quran is the words of Allah, Allah Subhan. Allah says, when I had a minister Moshe kinesthesia, Allah kapha, as your who is smack Alam Allah, and if any of those polytheists of the Arabian Peninsula, that you seek Your protection, they

00:03:53--> 00:04:17

seek you refuge in You, O Muhammad, then give them protection, provide them with protection until they get to a point where they hear the kalam Allah, the words of ALLAH, the speech of Allah. So the Quran is the speech of Allah Subhan. Allah is not the creation, the mortality, let's say. They say the Quran is meanings that were with Allah. And then Allah created words

00:04:18--> 00:04:20

at the tongue of Gibreel.

00:04:22--> 00:04:59

And these words harbor the meanings that Allah has himself. That's a very philosophical, wrong, false Arcada the people also know they know the Quran is the words of ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala so Kitab an Angela who ileka a Quran ro book that we sent down unto you, or Muhammad, and then Allah mentions the purpose why He sent down the Quran and that summarizes the mission of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. He took region nurse Amina Bulu Mati in a note, so that you take people from darkness into light. That's the mission of the prophets, Allah, and any day any scholar

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

Those

00:05:01--> 00:05:20

who claim to be contributing to this mission, their job and their goal has to be to take people from darkness into light, from darkness into light. That's the mission of the Prophet SAW Selim and his followers take people from darkness into light, similar meaning was mentioned.

00:05:21--> 00:05:41

In the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah says, for example, salted Hadith, who will lead the unit zero Allah, the beginner in the raja Kamina automatic and unknown Allah he's the one who sends down upon His servant and ask the prophets of Allah salam ala out in the unit verses that are clear.

00:05:42--> 00:06:24

And there are clear signs from Allah subhanaw taala to take you out from darkness into light to take you from darkness into light and Allah Subhan Allah says in surah baqarah Allahu Allah you will let me know your creed your home enough volume at either no Allah is the Guardian, the Helper, the protector of the believers, he takes them encourage home he takes them from darkness whenever the LaMattina no two lights. And for those who remember, I've said that so many times. The Quran is often or the revelation or Islam itself is often resembled or is over is often given the parable or the metaphor of light. That's why we said the mission of the Prophet SAW Salem can be summarized in

00:06:24--> 00:06:34

two things. Light, it brings light to people and brings life light and life and this is mentioned in Surah Al Anam Allah subhanaw taala says

00:06:38--> 00:06:40

a woman can be eaten. Yay now.

00:06:41--> 00:06:47

What do you know on the MCB evenness. Camera my fellow who filled blue Mati Lisa Bihari Jimena.

00:06:48--> 00:07:19

Allah Singh is the one who was dead or had been dead, but to whom We gave life someone had been dead, but we gave him life. So we brought him from death to life. Was there another who that's life? Would you another who knew on the MGB evenness and we gave him light, exclusive light, with which he finds his path among others. That means others are in darkness, but this person has been given light with which he finds the path.

00:07:20--> 00:07:44

him she behave in US command method, Wolfeboro matinees and Bihar Jimena like someone who's in darkness, and was unable to get out of this darkness. So Allah is summarizing the revelation, or the religion of Islam as two things life and light, life of the heart, and light, it's the knowledge that shows you right from wrong truth from falsehood.

00:07:45--> 00:07:54

And that's what the Prophet SAW Selim, we said was sent to do, that's what the person was sent to fulfill in people, give them life and give them light. But there are people who reject

00:07:56--> 00:08:00

the life and the light. And there is a secret, there is a secret.

00:08:02--> 00:08:03

If

00:08:04--> 00:08:07

the heart does not get the spark of life,

00:08:09--> 00:08:11

it's not receptive to the light.

00:08:14--> 00:08:28

If the hut does not receive the spark of life, that comes from Revelation, it, it stops or ceases becoming receptive, it's not receptive to the knowledge, it's not receptive to the knowledge

00:08:30--> 00:08:31

or the light.

00:08:33--> 00:08:35

And this can be found

00:08:37--> 00:08:39

in a comparison between two verses and swords.

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

And this is something also spoke about previously, they went to Las Panatela talks about life giving life to the heart, this is his gear.

00:08:51--> 00:08:55

This is this gear. And when Allah talks about knowledge and teaching,

00:08:56--> 00:08:57

that's light.

00:08:59--> 00:09:33

That's light. So you will you'll find Allison McGraw speaking about the mission of the prophets of Allah who sell them in solitary Bukhara three times in the Quran Allah mentions this and salted about Carlos Montana says, Who will the orientalist and Joomla who will lead the band basophil Amina rasool Allah minim yet Lu Allah Him, He will use a key him while you aluminum use a key Him we will eliminate Skia is a key him your aluminum teaches them to Ischia is to give life to the heart, your aluminum is to give light to the heart which is knowledge. Now,

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

where do we get the proof in the Quran, that if the heart does not get the spark of life, it cannot receive knowledge because the heart at that heart cannot receive knowledge. So you have to give it the spark of life in order for it spiritual life in order for it to become receptive to knowledge. Allah subhanaw taala talks about Ibrahim alayhis salam and sort of the Bukhara that Ibrahim made the DUA about

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

By now, I see him on solar minimum. Yet through Allah him hieratic or Allah send among them a messenger from amongst themselves, who conveys the message relates your verses. It's grown in it that's the general you know, duty of every messenger. But the problem was supposed to achieve two things so go to him and SLM he says, You're telling him at where you were unlimited al Kitab our hikma we use a key him he teaches them your limo home Akita about Hikmah the book and wisdom where he was the key him and gives them to his Kia Ibrahim Ray someone he made the DUA he put knowledge before test gear.

00:10:36--> 00:10:43

Knowledge before Teskey meaning he put lights before life. So when Allah subhanaw taala responded,

00:10:44--> 00:10:58

Allah says love admin Allah who didn't want me in a bath of him rasool Allah the same Surah Susan Bukhara shortly after Allah says leopard men Allahu Allah Mina is better for him Rasul Eminem for him. Allah has blessed herself bless His blessings upon the believers.

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

If breastfeeding was stolen, in in the sense that he sent among them a messenger from amongst themselves, I sorta It's gratifying to see him yet literally him It conveys the message, right? That's the general mission. But when Allah says Ibrahim alayhi salam asked you Allah Mohammed Kitab al Hikmah, we use a cane.

00:11:20--> 00:11:25

Allah azza wa jal responded how use a key him while you're a limo Makita.

00:11:26--> 00:12:05

So Ibrahim alayhi salam asked for knowledge. He mentioned knowledge first than Teskey but when Allah subhanaw taala responded to the DUA and answer the Dr. Ibrahim, how did he answer it? He says he sent the messenger for amongst themselves conveys the message as it conveys the verses of Allah. Use a key him Pisky first then your Allah Mohammed Kitab al Hakim, so Allah put Ischia before knowledge, to Ischia before knowledge. Because if your heart is not has not reached Teskey, which is the life of the heart, you will not benefit from knowledge, you will not benefit and you will not receive it, you will not take it to heart, and if you will learn it you will abuse it is what Allah subhanaw

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

taala talks about the person

00:12:08--> 00:12:09

was called.

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

Last month, Allah says what's really him never Allah the attina who is enough and Salah

00:12:17--> 00:12:37

and salah, Mina, at bow shape on of Academy know how we can relate to them the news about the person to whom we have given our air yet in our verses, knowledge of the book. Thus, previous nations he was given revelation. He was a scholar, basically, he was a scholar who learned the revelation

00:12:38--> 00:12:46

at in our IRTF and Salah Homina. So he took himself out of that knowledge, in what sense he did not follow that knowledge

00:12:47--> 00:13:02

for at bow shape. And so shaytaan backed him up in that process in that journey of not living by the revelation that Moshe Ivanova cannon, I mean, are we so he was from the wrongdoers. He was from the ones who went astray.

00:13:03--> 00:13:36

While I was shooting, a lot of I know who we have when I can have a holiday in and out and if we will, so a lot when I was talking about himself, if we will, so we would have raised him with this knowledge. But he chose the lowest levels, he chose the lowest levels. So there are people who might have knowledge, but if they don't have the test gear, they will abuse that knowledge they will justify what's haram, they will justify What's wrong, and they will use it to manipulate. So this is why the proper kind of pavement or base course for knowledge is to scare scare. So again

00:13:40--> 00:13:45

the the proper kind of of sequence is that Allah gives

00:13:46--> 00:13:56

the spark of life, spiritual life to the heart, and the heart becomes receptive to knowledge now it wants to learn. Now it wants to learn and is able to learn when you learn.

00:13:58--> 00:14:20

This knowledge, this knowledge that you have learned is going to increase that spark of life will help you move to a higher level of Teskey a higher level of the life of the heart. And once you get there, you're able to learn more knowledge and that is how the process goes. Hand in hand is how the process goes. So Allah subhanaw taala says the Quran when the Quran does the Quran

00:14:22--> 00:14:41

we took the Jana seminar Bulu. matrilineal Quran was sent to the Prophet SAW Salem to get people out from darkness into light be in the Arab beam by the permission of the Lord. And this is why no one believes except by the permission of Allah. by the permission of Allah. It's not a mathematical process, you give someone guidance, they're going to receive it No.

00:14:42--> 00:14:49

Guidance happens only by the permission of Allah. And who are the people that Allah gives guidance to the people who truly deserve it.

00:14:50--> 00:14:59

The people who truly deserve it we said guidance is a gift from Allah. And who the who does Allah give it to Allah gives it only to those who deserve it. Only those who do

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

As ever, who are the people who deserve it? Allah knows. Allah knows but we have to trust in Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah that Allah, that Allah does not do injustice even if it's as little as an atom's Wait, Allah does not commit injustice at all. And Allah says in the Hadith, an odyssey in a bed in the habitable Mallanna see what usual to be in a combat Rama, oh my servants, I have made

00:15:24--> 00:15:31

injustice, oppression. I've made it forbidden for myself. And I've made it forbidden for you as well.

00:15:32--> 00:16:20

So Allah will never commit any injustice, even the lobby him in surat al Aziz al Hamid, it us Ravi Aziz al Hamid. So, so that you get people out of darkness into law into the light by the permission of the Lord leading them into the path of Al Aziz al Hamid Allah mentions two of his name's al Aziz and Al Hamid Al Aziz al Hamid Al Aziz is the Almighty. Allah as he is is the all mighty, the powerful, the one who has the mind and the power. Al Hamid is the one who deserves praise. And that means, he deserves praise because he puts everything in its right place. So, what this shows is that Allah guides those who deserve guidance. So Allah does not put the guidance where it doesn't belong.

00:16:22--> 00:16:32

Aziz is that those who hold on to the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala, they will be given his they will be given power, they will be given strength. There is something very interesting that mumble am says

00:16:34--> 00:16:44

he talks about the verse Rohloff manga says, Well, I'm here Jihad Allah who live Katharina Allah, me Nina Sabina, and Allah will never, Allah will never give power

00:16:46--> 00:16:49

for the disbelievers over the believers.

00:16:50--> 00:16:55

He says there are people who questioned this, they say but we have believers

00:16:56--> 00:17:12

and they have been subjugated by disbelievers. So how come Allah is making a very emphatic statement? Well in the edge Allah Allah who will caffeine me Nina Sabirah. And Allah will never give power to the disbelievers over the believers. How come?

00:17:13--> 00:17:24

He says some people have this? They can't solve this issue this seem seeming or the seeming discrepancy. for them. It seems to be confirmed contradictory. But he says

00:17:27--> 00:17:58

we have to see this. Or we have to read this verse properly with balance that this depends on the level of ima when a person reaches the highest level of Eman. This verse applies to them fully. So how this verse applies to you is proportionate to the level of your email. You have little Eman, a low level of Eman. That means Allah will protect you from the people of disbelief in proportion to the level of your email.

00:17:59--> 00:18:12

The higher you grow in Amen, the more Allah will protect you from the disbelievers until we reach the highest level of highest levels of Eman. You get to a point where the believers the disbelievers will have no power over you know, might over you.

00:18:14--> 00:18:48

That's how he says as he says you can read all of Islamic history. And you can see the only time the believers are subjugated or taken over by the disbelievers, you will find when they have committed great acts of disobedience towards Allah subhanaw taala. So this is how we should and this is why sometimes by the way, this is very important issue. Sometimes we take one statement from the Quran, we take it out of context, and we we have very simplistic understanding of it and we want it to apply like someone says, and I received this question very often. Someone says Allah says Allah Muhammad only Institute glaucoma and your Lord says,

00:18:50--> 00:18:56

Call me and they will answer your call. She says I've been calling upon Allah but so many things are not being answered.

00:18:57--> 00:19:00

He said, But Allah is making clear statement call upon me, they will answer you.

00:19:01--> 00:19:16

The usual answer is you need to see this in context. Allah is saying when you call upon Allah, Allah will answer you when everything else is also in place. There's a bigger context, you have to see it. When your food and your provision is Helen, it's not haram.

00:19:18--> 00:19:31

When your record with Allah is clear, Israel, when you record with Allah is clear, because you could ask for something. And Allah doesn't give it to you because you have committed a sin. That's possible.

00:19:32--> 00:19:42

There's something else in context that you have to see but these are not mentioned in this context. But the wider context is there. So you have to see everything within that context that you have to automatically consider.

00:19:46--> 00:19:50

You might ask for something but there is a bad consequence in that thing for you.

00:19:51--> 00:19:58

So Allah is not going to respond. Allah is not going to give you what you asking for as simple as that. Why? Because it's not good for you.

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

That's another part of

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

The context then you have to see

00:20:02--> 00:20:06

this that's a dangerous approach to have a very simplistic understanding to these

00:20:08--> 00:20:11

I would say open or broad statements in the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:20:13--> 00:20:52

We have to be careful. And there is a famous story from Alibaba, Alibaba, the people of Kufa, they asked him, they said, you know, we call upon Allah, but he doesn't respond. But Allah promised response. We barely mentioned 10 reasons for them. He said, because your money is not halal is haram and your money. Allah doesn't respond to that. Because you guys have sinned, Allah does not respond to Allah could hold back some of his responses, because of the sense you have not put your trust in Allah when you made dua. So that's not proper da, and that's why you're not getting this and so on and so forth. So we have to keep in mind that things always have a context. Sometimes we're very

00:20:52--> 00:21:03

simplistic in our approach, and we say, oh, Allah makes the statement I made, my dryer is not answered the statement is not true. That's a very simplistic approach. very simplistic approach.

00:21:06--> 00:21:07

Then Allah Subhan, Allah says,

00:21:08--> 00:21:19

Allah He led the the whole math is similar, it won't feel where you don't need caffeine. I mean, I've been shooting, he says, Allah, this path of Allah, Aziz Hamid, Who is Allah,

00:21:20--> 00:21:59

to Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens, and whatever is on the earth, everything belongs to Allah, everything is the dominion of Allah. Allah has control over it over it. Allah is its owner, Allah is the one who runs it a lot, the ones who is the one who manages it, don't have doubt about this. Don't have doubt about this than the last ones that I says. were way too little caffeine. I mean, as I mentioned it, those who are not guided, those who refuse the guidance, those who turn away from the guidance, and thus they disbelief. For them, there will be a very severe punishment. That's a simple thing, the believers will be taken from darkness into light. And they have taken the

00:21:59--> 00:22:04

path of Al Aziz the Almighty, the one who deserves all praise, so Allah will take care of them.

00:22:06--> 00:22:15

And Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. And those who oppose or those who disbelieve and those who reject and deny belief, simply they will have severe punishment,

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

and of story, that's what life is about. As simple as that so straightforward. Allah gives it you know,

00:22:25--> 00:22:51

straight away at the beginning of the beginning of the Surah, Allah gives it upfront at the beginning of the summer, then Allah describes who are the Catherine who are the disbelievers and or what leads them to that state. Allah Subhana Allah says Allah deen is the head bone and higher than dunya Fiera wire, so don't answer me the law he were born, he was iffy about learning by Allah says all fields and aspect of these people.

00:22:52--> 00:23:12

They are the ones who give preference to this life of dunya over the actual over the next life. And that's one of the main reasons for their belief. They give preference to this life over the next. This life is short and temporary, and limited. The Astra is eternal, endless.

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

And

00:23:15--> 00:23:36

above, there's abundance there in Jannah in the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala engine. So people who choose this over this, they will end up becoming disbelievers. That's the reason for their disbelief. Why would someone exchange the eternal, endless life with something that's temporary and limited? Why?

00:23:39--> 00:24:10

It seems it seems to be very obvious, extremely obvious, would you exchange 70 years, the say 100 years, actually 70 Let's say 70. Because if someone lives up to 100 years, most of their old age is going to be suffering from illnesses, diseases, dependency, loneliness, and so on and so forth. So usually Old age is not a it's not a fun age. So let's say 70 years, let's say someone who's going to enjoy their life for 70 years full blast enjoyment.

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

Would any human being in their right mind, choose this over an eternal life? That's infinity, and in turn a life of blessings.

00:24:25--> 00:24:44

That is far more greater than whatever you can think about in this life. And we mentioned sort of the old woman had underneath for the FLT, lammeter the whole beauty, the whole enjoyment, everything that's fun, everything's as beautiful and pleasant about this life. If you combine it all together, compared to the hereafter, it's just one one simple moment of pleasure.

00:24:46--> 00:24:50

Is there any comparison anyone the right mind would choose this life over the next?

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

And that's what ultimately that's what the disbelievers aren't doing. That's what they're doing.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

And that the less the head wanted her to dunya

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

I'll ask you why. So Donna and Sevilla who were born, and not only they make choices for themselves, then they choose this life over the next. But they also want to force their choice on others. They're not happy with others choosing the hereafter over this life, they're not happy with this. And this way, you're going to find the people who are upon falsehood,

00:25:21--> 00:25:25

you will find a great portion of them, they're not happy with people making free choices.

00:25:26--> 00:25:31

They're not happy with this, if you don't choose what they choose, they will fight you.

00:25:32--> 00:25:43

And sometimes people fall for, you know, for, for what seems to be the case, people fall foul for appearance and for the facade. But

00:25:45--> 00:26:01

a lot of people who even claim that they are the champion freedom, and they support freedom, they actually go against it in passive ways. They go against it in passive ways. They say, Okay, you have freedom of religion, you can choose, right?

00:26:02--> 00:26:03

But

00:26:04--> 00:26:21

they're going to curb these choices through passive ways in direct ways. So they are passively aggressive. So they will exert social pressure upon you. Or you can choose to worship whoever you want, right? But when you know, when your Muslim will label you as a terrorist.

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

When you're a Muslim, you're backward. When you're a Muslim. Okay, you narrowminded.

00:26:28--> 00:27:08

When you're a Muslim, you're just a blind follower, you're following culture, you don't have a free mind. You can't make choices for yourself. And, and so on, and so forth. You know, the list of accusations, you know, extends forever, always find something, even in terms of sexual orientation. Imagine you can't preach in so many environments, you cannot preach because that's disrespectful, if you preach, but you're going to find in, in schools, a lot of other sexual orientations are being pushed, being pushed in, I would say, in a very aggressive way, that if you were to preach your religion the same way,

00:27:09--> 00:27:34

they would have issues with you. But when they preach other sexual orientations, they say, oh, no, people have the right to know. These kids have the right to see other sexual orientations, right? Maybe they have this kind of orientation. So why would something else if I preach the same way you preach? My preaching is problematic, but yours are, it's all about freedom. That's the issue. So

00:27:36--> 00:27:58

oftentimes, you'll find people who are upon falsehood, they're not happy with you following something else is what Allah Subhana Allah says, In the Quran repeatedly with Deputy Rahman Allah Kitabi that we are doing a commissioned by the Eman ecomcrew foreign hustler in fund some of the people of the Scripture. A lot of them, they wish to turn your back to disbelief. Allah said has said and out of envy.

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

What is it Luna? compositae or DocumentDB comunista. Allah talks about the polytheists of the Arabic Arabian Peninsula, that they still fight you to push you back or to make you give up your religion and so on and so forth. Even looking at sometimes you'll find just talking about sexual orientation talking about come look on look, come load. Look, Alehissalaam did not engage in their practices.

00:28:25--> 00:28:47

Did they leave him alone? No. Like when he had guests, they wanted to engage in their sexual acts, with their with his guests. With his guests were actually angels come in the form of men human being and then the people of load as well. They said a hurry do l open milker yet you come in the homeowner Sunita Harun.

00:28:49--> 00:29:33

Okay, look chose certain what we say straight sexual orientation for himself. Right. And his followers the same. Now the Overlord, what they said, they said, kick these people out of your town. Because these people, they purify themselves more and what is freedom now? And you're going to find this, you will find this. People who have something people believe in something, they're not happy with you following something else. There are exceptions. But a lot of these exceptions as well, you will find them actually being passive in their approach. They're passively aggressive. They are passively aggressive anyway. But that's the nature of human being because our minds think as Mr.

00:29:33--> 00:29:36

Payne again says, he says our minds think by means of comparison.

00:29:38--> 00:29:40

When you do not follow my ways.

00:29:41--> 00:29:48

You're basically a tacit or you are a hidden threat, and

00:29:50--> 00:29:54

challenge to my ideas. Because when you do not follow my ways you say all my ways are not optimal.

00:29:55--> 00:30:00

That's how humans automatically think so this is why when you disagree with someone, they say

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

Get personal,

00:30:01--> 00:30:02

take it personal.

00:30:03--> 00:30:22

Very few people are mature enough to be able to rise above that ego kind of game. So we're Sedona and Sevilla and they push others against the way of Allah. We are born to have a worker and they insist, and they make a conscious choice to follow a crooked on straightway

00:30:24--> 00:30:34

on street with wood or it can feel more than embodied those people are in great misguidance these people are in great misguidance

00:30:39--> 00:30:42

and Imam Sadie here he says,

00:30:44--> 00:31:12

the people of disbelief when he talks about your wound, he will do and they seek the crooked path. He mentioned something he says. So the people of disbelief will always give a bad name to the path of Allah subhanaw taala they will call it names, they will try to blemish its beauty they will try to create accusations against it to make it repulsive to make it look repulsive. So people avoid it. And I mean we can see this almost everywhere.

00:31:14--> 00:31:46

When I also learned Rasul inlab The reason he called me here, you will begin at a home for your will allow me to share with me your shirt well well as usual Hakim, Allah says, We says, We have not sent a messenger except that he speaks the language of his people. We have not sent a messenger except that he speaks the language of his people, the language of his people, do you believe in Allah him so he could clarify to them he could convey to them clearly and make the truth clear, this crystal clear for them.

00:31:48--> 00:32:30

And this shows the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala, the wisdom of Allah subhanaw taala, that Allah sends the right people with the right tongue, with the right approach at the right time, and so on, so forth. So Allah subhanaw taala, sends every messenger speaking the language of their own people. And this is why it's very important for dua to think about this, to think about this, that when you when you address an audience, you need to speak their language. And I'm not necessarily speaking about language in a very literal sense, like English, Arabic, French, Spanish, Hindi, Chinese, etc. I'm not talking about this, what I'm saying I'm saying, language is not only words, you know,

00:32:30--> 00:32:45

sometimes on a personal level, especially this happens with spouses, you can find, you can see that the spouse, like the wife, and it's understands what her husband her husband's intent, without him even saying a word. Or he might say something, but for an outsider,

00:32:47--> 00:32:54

they get us there get a surface meaning, but the wife of that person, she figures out a very deep meaning a very,

00:32:55--> 00:33:31

she gets an insinuation a very far meaning. But she knows where her husband means. And this happens as well with friends. Sometimes friends have a secret language. I mean, they speak English, right? And you understand the words, but you don't understand the code. There is something there's some kind of code between friends because they have their own unique experiences their own unique history, they've developed some kind of common language, so they understand each other's code. Although they speak English, you understand every word that's being said, but you feel as a stranger because you don't, you can't really decipher their code. That also falls within language. Because

00:33:31--> 00:33:42

language is not only words, languages, words, meanings, and there's a cultural with language. Language is a way of thinking, by the way, language is a way of thinking.

00:33:45--> 00:33:47

So this is very important for that one.

00:33:48--> 00:33:49

Very important for that.

00:33:50--> 00:33:54

And here, I want to mention one example, which is really very important

00:33:56--> 00:33:59

to show you as well what language also means.

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

I remember

00:34:02--> 00:34:04

talking about 15 years ago,

00:34:05--> 00:34:19

this was in the West for Muslims speaking for Islam, appearing in talk shows and public platforms speak about Islam. Muslims used to be asked the question, why can't you drink alcohol? Why don't you guys drink alcohol?

00:34:20--> 00:34:28

The common response because, you know, I'm coming from a Muslim culture, from Muslim background, Muslim countries, the culture, their

00:34:29--> 00:34:30

obedience is valued.

00:34:31--> 00:34:53

obedience, and compliance is valued. But if you comply, to the norms to the culture, this actually shows good demeanor. It shows good demeanor, because the opposite of this is rebellion. Defiance, and you're more of a renegade you looked upon as a renegade as in a negative sense. So

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

when you talk to a Muslim audience, you know, why don't you drink alcohol? I don't I alcohol

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

Allah says, No, that's beautiful. That's beautiful for Muslim culture, or you are obedient. You comply with the commands of Allah subhanaw taala. But when you speak to a western audience, because they have an issue of individuality, right? intellectual freedom, and so on and so forth, when you say this, and this happened, actually, in the UK, someone asked to shave, and they had had him on a public television, public television on a TV show, talk show. And they asked him, you know, why don't you guys drink alcohol? Or God prohibits me from drinking alcohol. I don't drink it. I can't drink it.

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

And he thought he was giving a good answer, because he was speaking his own culture. But the audience made a sound Oh, you know how the English you know, the English in the common house. They have they make objections by if you speak something, they can just pull you out, right? That's the norm. So the audience went, oh, so basically, stem confiscates your point, personal choice, you can't make choices.

00:36:01--> 00:36:06

That was the message they got. And it was a negative message. It was a negative message.

00:36:08--> 00:36:20

And that's the issue with cultures. That's the issue. And that's part of language. I would say, the ideal approach, and this is a lot of DeWanna. Will hamdullah are figuring this out, is that

00:36:21--> 00:36:30

because you know how these people received the message, I can drink, I want to drink it, I wish I can drink it. But because Allah says, No, I'm scared, I can't go, I can't go there.

00:36:32--> 00:36:40

That's how they received the message. But that's not really what Islam says. What Islam says is that I know, I love Allah.

00:36:42--> 00:36:59

I love Allah and Allah knows, and I don't know. So when Allah says to me, something is haram automatically, automatically, I find the hatred towards it, I don't want it. I don't even have any desire to it, I find my freedom in leaving it, that gives me freedom. That gives me power.

00:37:01--> 00:37:07

Because I trust in Allah. That's the kind of message that we should communicate to these people because there was a gap. And this message was lost in the middle.

00:37:09--> 00:37:20

So anyone who speaks to our people, they need to understand their tongue, not only the language as words, the meanings, and not only this, the social meanings, the cultural meanings.

00:37:21--> 00:37:34

So when you understand their meaning making system, you're able to communicate with them. So you get your message across instead of getting misinterpreted instead of giving the wrong message across, which actually pushes people away even from Islam.

00:37:35--> 00:38:12

So when I was in law school in hillbillies, and he told me hear you, but you know, how do you begin? That's the word. So he could clearly convey to them the meanings. And if you don't understand the culture, you're not going to convey meanings you will convey opposite to your intention. That's the problem for your little Allahumma your shirt. Where do you make your shirt? Well, as usual, hacky Allah guides whomever, he will allow misleads Oxford, Allah misguides, in the sense that Allah leaves to go astray, whomever he wills, and Allah guides, whomever he wills and we said previously, this is based on the justice of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah gives guidance to the people who

00:38:12--> 00:38:19

deserve it. And Allah leaves the people who choose other than guidance, Allah leaves them to go astray.

00:38:20--> 00:38:39

Well, who will as he is will hacky. And as he said, He is the Almighty and he's the all wise. So no one can take guidance, without the permission of Allah. And that's what Allah Aziz means. Here. He is the Almighty, so I cannot take guidance against the will of Allah guidance happens by the will of Allah subhanaw taala

00:38:41--> 00:38:56

al Hakim, it shows that Allah is the wise and we said wise means Allah puts everything in its right place. The real meaning of wisdom or al hikma appropriateness, is appropriateness, appropriateness, that you put everything in its right place at the right time.

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

In the right context, everything is just right, everything is just appropriate. So Al Hakim here means that Allah puts guidance where it belongs, according to his wisdom, what will as usual Hakim, and it shows also the wisdom of Allah is that he sends a messenger to the people who speaks their language, who understands the language they can relate to him. And this is why it's very important as well in Dawa when we speak about the youth, it's important to have young days are able to connect with them, who understand their culture, who can that they can relate to these people. We need to we need to keep this in mind. We're human beings. And we also need to take into consideration as well

00:39:40--> 00:39:59

sometimes in Islam, we can take even color into consideration, we can take background and races into consideration we can take that into consideration. So for example, last month Allah when he mentioned his blessings on on the on the Arabs, he says Rasulullah min unforeseen we sent a messenger from amongst themselves.

00:40:00--> 00:40:04

I was going to that I sent you a Messenger from amongst you is an Arab.

00:40:05--> 00:40:42

He's an Arab, he's not from that race or that other is for amongst you. And that's a blessing that's a gift. This makes it more likely for you to follow him makes it easier for you to follow him. So as well in our Dawa as well, we should take this into consideration. Now you have in different communities, you have an African community, American African community, you have the white community, you have Spanish community, you have Latino community, you have different communities, you have European communities, it's better to have good, who's who's who come from that background will come from that ethnicity and who speak the language understand the culture they can relate to

00:40:42--> 00:40:55

these people are much more effective, much more effective. You will find exceptions, right? Yes, but most likely, people who belong to that culture or that ethnicity are more likely to be more influential.

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

Welcome, Musa Biya Tina and anchorage coma Kameena buruma to either know, where the kid home be a young Illa interview that he can

00:41:08--> 00:41:09

be equally suberin Shaco.

00:41:12--> 00:41:32

Allah Subhana Allah says We sent or We sent Musa alayhis salam with a Latina with our signs or signs and our verses, our signs, the miracles that were given to Musa alayhis salam that prove His Messenger ship, and also a Torah. A Torah was given to Musa alayhis salam

00:41:33--> 00:42:03

and encourage Omar Kameena Bulu matita note. So the mission of Mossad Islam like you or Muhammad was to bring your people may not follow Matt from darkness into a nor light into like the same mission, the same mission with acutal, whom be a yarmulke and remind them of the days of Allah. What does this mean? Remind them of the days of Allah means remind them of the days where Allah destroyed the previous nations who rejected to believe or refuse to believe and rejected faith.

00:42:04--> 00:42:11

So remind them of the days when Allah destroyed, add another mod and other and all those nations who

00:42:12--> 00:42:27

rejected their prophets and messengers, and chose disbelief remind them of those days. And it also means remind them of the days or Musa remind them of the days when Pharaoh Ioan was on top of them. When Ron was killing their children

00:42:29--> 00:42:44

and when for own was keeping them as slaves, remind them of those days. Because we saved them afterwards. We saved them so Let them remember the blessings of Allah upon them to save them from Iran. And this is gonna it was gonna mention this again, shortly.

00:42:46--> 00:43:00

Where the Columbia Yeah, Mullah interview radical yachting, liquidly sambar in Chicago, indeed, in those days of Allah, which is basically the punishments that Allah sent upon the people who disbelieved and the honor that Allah gave the people who believed.

00:43:02--> 00:43:05

Which Prophet, his people believed in him.

00:43:06--> 00:43:07

Prior to Prophet Muhammad saucer.

00:43:09--> 00:43:21

You find most of the stories in the Quran, the all about people disbelieved in their prophet right, they rebelled against the Prophet against the messenger. So Allah sent the punishment against them, who was the prophet that is people believed in Him fully.

00:43:24--> 00:44:09

Jonas le his Salam, fellow, Allah cannot call yet on ama not finna Fatiha email, in lack of nuance. Allah says the people of us they're the only ones who believed completely in the message of view on us, although they had disbelieved previously, but later on, they believed so when you remind them of those days of Allah, how he honored for example, communists and those who believed and how he punished those who disbelieved and challenged Allah subhanaw taala. In a theoretical area, technically substantial in those days, there are signs, there are lessons there are wisdoms for every suburb and Chicago, suburb and Chico. Sebata is someone who has patients high level of pain

00:44:09--> 00:44:12

with suburb is not patients. Patients is a small fraction of

00:44:13--> 00:44:14

patients is a lifestyle.

00:44:15--> 00:44:23

Patience is a life style. It's not only or suburb is a lifestyle. It's not only patients, it's not only perseverance,

00:44:25--> 00:44:32

patient, or somebody has so many meanings among them as patients forbearance. Personally, perseverance.

00:44:33--> 00:44:42

Consistency is part of patience, consistency, commitment is part of patience. There's so many meanings to patients or to someone.

00:44:43--> 00:44:52

So So somebody's a way of life, and it is achieved by a high level of maturity. Now, the scholars of Islam and I will pay you mentioned this in his book, wobble sleep.

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

Winds. I will call him a pipe, which is a book of car he talks about patients and he says or talks about suburb

00:45:00--> 00:45:26

He says suburb is the highest level of Ischia. We spoke about Teskey and right. He says a suburb is the highest level of Teskey. And he says all the clock all the good manners, all the ethical principles in Islam, the heart of them is a suburb. The heart of this is if someone and here's why the profit goes on and says Morocco year ahead on Alba and Bedell Imani Billa.

00:45:28--> 00:45:33

The Prophet Austin says no one is given a blessing from Allah. After Eman that is better than suburb.

00:45:35--> 00:45:58

suburb, if you have someone, you're going to automatic, it's so central Pivotal, that once you have somebody automatically you grow in every aspect of your life, in every goodness that you can think about. You're going to grow automatically. You're going to have shujaa You're going to have courage, you're going to have a sudden, truthfulness and honesty. You're going to have generosity of Karim, you're going to have

00:46:01--> 00:46:18

insight, you're gonna have insight, and basura you're going to have anything good that you can think about the heart of it is patience. Once you get patience, straightaway, it spills over into all aspects of your life. So in the Philadelphia area 10 equal the Saba

00:46:19--> 00:46:28

for every human being has reached this high level of a summer Shaco is also thankful. Thankful to Allah Sparta, scholars say thankfulness resembles

00:46:30--> 00:46:57

the external deeds. It's an attitude in the heart but resembles all the external deeds. Because everything in Islam you do you're supposed to do it in thankfulness is what Allah said Sudha would say salaam, it a man who, who the chakra, or family of the wood and the followers of their wood acts do righteousness in thankfulness. So all your deeds should be emanating from your attitude of thankfulness to Allah.

00:46:59--> 00:47:03

That's what worship is worship is being thankful to Allah through your attitude and actions.

00:47:04--> 00:47:09

So this is why these are very important traits, patients or server and sugar

00:47:11--> 00:47:31

as why again, she has some Tamia says a dean, Gmail oakdene The whole of Dean of Islam is in this from some Bronwyn has Franciacorta is his half of Islam a suburb, the other half of sugar. That's it. That's what Islam is. You want to understand Islam. This is what stands for Islam, salt, and sugar.

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

These are profound things, but for us we take sober or just be patient. And that's it. Pretty simple thing, small thing. I know it's a way of life and sugarcoat it, okay, I'm going to be thankful. That's it. No. Thankfulness

00:47:48--> 00:48:09

is also a way of life. It's an attitude towards life. And when you are thankful, and we're going to mention this, it changes your life. thankfulness, by the way, is a very powerful principle that can change the dynamics and the cost of your life. And that's what truly that's what sugar is. But when you when you when we reduce it to saying thank you, or saying it Hamdulillah.

00:48:11--> 00:48:54

That's a very small, tiny bit of what sugar is. Sugar is a way of life. It's a it's a current that runs through your life. So every moment in your life, in the back of your mind, there is this kind of current of thankfulness to Allah. You live in thankfulness, you feel it throughout the moments every new day, and unite you feeling thankfulness you feeling indebted to Allah, throughout your life, and every moment of your life. It's just when you go to work, and you have the sense of obligation and commitment and duty. And you always feel I want to do this, I want to do this, I want to do that even when you're sitting or even when you're checking your Facebook account at work.

00:48:54--> 00:49:05

Probably the reblocked the cynical work now these days, and whatever social media, whatever you do, check your phone and you ticket all your fi, your home feed and so on and so forth. Basically

00:49:06--> 00:49:27

when you do this, you always have the back of your mind, or the things I need to do there are things you need to do or when your wife this is for only for married people when your wife tells you okay, I need you to go to Walmart for basic cetera I want you to get me onions, garlic, and lettuce, and

00:49:29--> 00:49:30

some cucumbers.

00:49:32--> 00:49:40

You might be having a nice day. But there's something bugging you throughout the day. It's it like keeps nudging you and poking you at the back of your head.

00:49:42--> 00:49:59

Oh, I need to get this for my wife, right? You can't enjoy any moment. Why? Because you have this you know, nagging the back at the back of your mind of your head that I need to get this right. But conversely, in a very positive sense, thankfulness that's what it is. It's always there.

00:50:00--> 00:50:37

If it's not like you put it on the side, then you visit it over and over again. No, it is something that's always active. And it's always shaping your feelings and your attitude. Regardless what you do. That's when thankfulness Oh, should come becomes a way of life. So when you develop these two things, you know what happens, it's going to open your mind you're going to see things for what they really are, is where Allah says in the view that he can aid in the condition bar in Chico. When you develop these two things, sabalan Schuco in you, all of a sudden, you'll start to see things for what they really are. You can see through things, and that's why you're able to take lessons. Other

00:50:37--> 00:50:40

people because they don't have Saba, they don't have sugar.

00:50:41--> 00:50:46

What will happen, they can't see the screen, they just can't see.

00:50:47--> 00:50:49

It called a Musala Oh, me.

00:50:50--> 00:51:19

With coloane EMET, Allahu Allah, you can injure Coleman Alif around as well, Mona console Allah up with a behavior, como esta, he will come off he daddy Cumbre en la become even more Salesianum was sent to his people, in order to remind them in order to warn them. And in order to put that reminder in context, because humans see things in relation to them. We always by the way, there's always a question you asking yourself, whatever you do, what's in it for me?

00:51:20--> 00:51:31

What's in it? For me? This question runs through your mind every time you have to make a decision. And your answer to this question decides whether you will go for it, or you or you will opt out of it.

00:51:33--> 00:51:52

What's in it for me? We are pragmatic human beings. We are pragmatic creatures, even those who want to go to Jannah. They are pragmatic, why do they why do they want to go to Jana? Because it's good for them, right? By the way, that's what even told me it says he says whatever human beings do, they do it for their own welfare.

00:51:54--> 00:51:58

They do. He says, The miserly person holds back money.

00:52:00--> 00:52:07

Because of pragmatism, because he cares about himself. And the good person, generous person, he gives out money for the same reason.

00:52:09--> 00:52:10

Because he cares about himself.

00:52:12--> 00:52:34

But they have different ways of caring for themselves, this person found that is better for me to give for the sake of Allah. It helps me grow spiritually. And it helps me get credit with Allah subhanaw taala make it to monetize the miserly person. He doesn't see it that way he looks at he sees it through a different lens. And he says, I'm going to lose money that I made, it's mine. So I'm going to lose. So I'm not going to do it.

00:52:35--> 00:52:41

So both of them are coming originally from the same place. But it's how you fulfill it, how you interpret it. So

00:52:43--> 00:52:53

in order to wake up this, their minds and make them consider the message, Allah subhanaw taala says to him, remind them of the blessings of Allah upon

00:52:55--> 00:53:32

how Allah saved them from for our own, and from his people that they used to punish them. They used to put them under very extreme or under extreme conditions, and they kill their newborns, and they leave the women. They use them as slaves. And there was a and this is a great trial. If you daddy cumbia on the robbery camaleon This is a great trial, what you went through, but there's another meaning that has double meaning here, Allah says that, Fidel, Cambodia anaerobic Maleme and in the fact that Allah saved you from for our own, there is great trial for you, are you going to be thankful or not?

00:53:33--> 00:53:42

So the blessings of Allah are a trial for you. When Allah saves you from something bad, that's a trial that was built out for you as a trial for you. Are you going to be thankful?

00:53:43--> 00:53:46

Or are you going to be negligent and ungrateful?

00:53:48--> 00:53:49

What if the book

00:53:51--> 00:54:00

in Chicago termed as Eden Comala Inc, of autumn in, we should be and that's a very important point that resonates with what we just said. And Allah declared

00:54:01--> 00:54:07

by on the tangle mortality Salam, Allah made a clear statement through Musa and this is a universal law.

00:54:09--> 00:54:12

That will come later in Chicago, Tumblr as Eden.

00:54:13--> 00:54:27

Allah subhanaw taala made a declaration that if you are grateful, if you are thankful, I shall increase you and my blessings. This is a universal rule that works everywhere, everywhere.

00:54:28--> 00:54:30

But you just have to be grateful.

00:54:31--> 00:54:38

And gratefulness is that is not you saying hamdulillah or you just, it's not just once in a while we say thank you. That's not it.

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

It's a way of life. It's a lifestyle. It's something that keeps running in your system. And it shapes who you are. It shapes your decisions shapes, your thoughts, shapes, your considerations that shapes your actions. It shapes your intentions. It shapes everything about you. That's when you are thankful. So when you live in a constant state of thankfulness and sugar you

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

You will start to see the more blessings of Allah coming to you. That's a rule that does not break

00:55:06--> 00:55:08

it and then inshallah Khartoum as Eden.

00:55:09--> 00:55:14

So Allah is saying to them if you are thankful, if you are grateful, I shall increase you.

00:55:15--> 00:55:39

Will interfer tominaga been ushered in, if you act ungratefully, covered here, covered in Arabic originally means being ungrateful by the way, one of the meanings of kufr means ungrateful. This is why we sent from them, you're ungrateful to the blessings, you're ungrateful to a blessing, that's awful NEMA, because there's a very strong link between disbelief and ungratefulness. So

00:55:40--> 00:55:57

if you act on, gratefully, my punishment will be severe, so you will lose the blessings, the punishment will come back to you. That's a universal rule as well. To put this in context, in the context of the people of Mossad is Allah saying, we have saved you from from from that very difficult state

00:55:58--> 00:56:24

of subjugation and enslavement, and murdering your newborns, we've saved you from that. So if you are grateful, we're going to increase you in that freedom and these blessings. But if you're ungrateful, you're going to go back to slavery, you're going to you might even get worse for you. And you're just receiving the consequences of your own actions and attitudes. So this shows as well, we can see, there's a principle in solfa that says, Ebola to be a mom in

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

law, because

00:56:27--> 00:56:41

the meanings in the Quran, there are general statements, although they come within a context like the story of Mosul, Islam and its people, but they have universal application. universal application, this is a universal rule that applies everywhere.

00:56:43--> 00:56:48

And it's very important, anyone who wants more from Allah subhanaw taala, be grateful, just be grateful.

00:56:49--> 00:57:20

And you will get more. And gratefulness as I said, is an attitude and his words as actions. So if Allah gives you wealth, and you give for the sake of Allah, because Allah gave you, that's an act of gratefulness. But you have to have all of the layers, which is the attitude and the feeling in the heart, and the act of giving. If you have it as a full context, or as a complete, holistic action, that's when it's gonna pay off. But if you give, and you want to see if it comes back or not, you're testing it out.

00:57:21--> 00:57:52

This might not work for you most likely will not actually work. So you have to be in that state of trusting, when you give that Allah is gonna give you back more. And that's where Allah where the Hadith of the prophets and false Nana or some Adelman sadaqa, or money will never go down because of giving charity, it will never go down. How you don't know how, if you count it, the numbers will go less. But if you look at the bigger context of your life, you're gonna see Allah is going to bring more blessings and more wealth from other ways you've never thought of, and you do not add them up.

00:57:54--> 00:57:58

So Allah and there might be some even hidden blessings, because

00:57:59--> 00:58:04

there might be some kind of a disaster that was meant to hit you and take all of your wealth.

00:58:06--> 00:58:18

But Allah took it away before it even materialized. You'll never get to know about this. You'll never get to know about this. Why did Allah take away from you by means of some charity or something good you did.

00:58:20--> 00:58:50

This is why the prophets of salaam says and authentic hadith sunnah Iranian ma roofie, Tatay Masada. So doing good deeds, protects you from bad ends, evil ends from disasters. You'll never get to know about these things because they're all in the unseen world when they were on on their way when they were approaching and then when they were stopped and aborted. You never saw this, but it's a blessing from ALLAH. So ALLAH pays us back in countless ways we don't know is why we have to trust

00:58:52--> 00:59:02

what to incur for them in the Russia gate, what O'Connor Musa in tactful and to woman fill out the journey and in Allah Lavanya Yun Hamid

00:59:06--> 00:59:21

Musa to his people, if you disbelieve, if you they live in denial to Allah subhanaw taala, ungrateful to Allah subhanaw taala you, My people, and everyone on Earth, everyone on earth,

00:59:23--> 00:59:47

then Allah doesn't stand in need of you anyway. Because your worship is not going to add to Allah, your ungratefulness your disbelief is not going to harm Allah in the least. It's not going to do anything. Allah is of any Allah is self sufficient. He doesn't need you. He doesn't need your worship. That's all for you. Hamid, Allah deserves all praise he doesn't need you're not going to add anything to Allah so he gets more praise or, or he becomes more praiseworthy.

00:59:48--> 00:59:52

Allah stands in no need of you. So that's all for you. So

00:59:58--> 01:00:00

and this reminds me of the

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

He's an Odyssey and Asahi.

01:00:02--> 01:00:09

Allah subhanaw taala says yeah you barely know and welcome into Cambodia Nico

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

cannot

01:00:14--> 01:00:26

be Raju Inwagen min Kumada Danica femal Keisha? Yeah. Last month Allah says, Oh My servants are the first and the last of you, all of you all of humanity from the time of Adam till the last minute before

01:00:27--> 01:00:34

the hereafter. All of you were upon the purest heart in humanity ever.

01:00:35--> 01:00:44

The purest heart, the best heart, worshiping Allah in the history of humanity ever, for all of you were upon this state of heart, all of you were believers.

01:00:46--> 01:00:48

Not only humans and jinn, as well.

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

This will not increase my dominion.

01:00:54--> 01:01:30

by anything, it's not gonna add anything to me. Yeah, EBA de la novella como Alpha como encircle Magina calm can be FJ ra Julian can only be Roger InWa hidden min come, Monica Sarika Acacia all my sevens have the first and the last of you all of you all are humans all Jin were upon the most Richard has the most evil heart ever in humanity all view the worst all of you know believers among all humanity and origin all of them are the worst ever. This would not decrease my power and my dominion and the least by the least nothing you're not going to affect Allah subhanaw taala

01:01:31--> 01:01:34

This is why I lost his brother in the mafia man we'll come back

01:01:36--> 01:01:41

tomorrow if you come here all my servants it's only your deeds. I'm counting them for you then we're gonna give them back to you.

01:01:42--> 01:01:56

Someone was at the helm for the hammer Linda woman was shot on also on fella illumine whoever finds goodness on the day of judgment the temporaries Allah and thank Allah whatever finds bad and evil the Hellfire blame on yourself.

01:01:57--> 01:02:06

So Allah does not you guys think oh, I'm standing in defiance to do nothing. Do nothing don't think you're just making a show of yourself.

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

You

01:02:10--> 01:02:26

a magical number of lithium ion club they come home you know hand wired in was already in the Himalaya. Illallah Tomasulo engelbertina to do idea home feed for him. Were called who in California Bhima or Silverton behave in the future Minmatar their own Anna

01:02:28--> 01:02:37

Marie Allah's ones are saying I couldn't be Musa. Now using this to these people, when it couldn't be Allah subhanaw taala here is initiating a new kind of

01:02:39--> 01:02:48

statement did not you didn't you receive the news of the nations that came before people of no that were drowned.

01:02:49--> 01:03:00

Where I had and the people have had as well that were destroyed about last month and the mod as well. They were destroyed by ALLAH from a matter module for helico but poverty Allah destroy them the people of Salah

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

only Kobe and soccsksargen it had Allah so we're gonna send to to them Allah and destroy them by a strong wind to them miracle a che MBM. Robbia destroys everything by the Command of your Lord and those who came after after them. Didn't you receive the news about them they will destroy the disbelief they were destroyed. Lai Allah Muhammad Allah Allah.

01:03:22--> 01:03:46

That means a lot of these people are only known by Allah subhanaw taala. So what you know is very little but Allah so Allah has shared with you, some some of them but there is much more that you don't know about but Allah knows about these people. Jah Tomasulo homebuilder units, their messengers came to them with the truth with the signs, clear signs, and the revelation followed the idea home fee for him

01:03:47--> 01:04:17

about the idea of their vision, their hands or their palms back into their mouths. What does this mean? Scholars of Tafseer they say it could be these people were biting the hands in hatred to the truth, but it could be as well as these people in denial. And some kind of amazement when these people said when the Prophets and Messengers said Worship Allah alone, they said, Wow, like is strange. This is despicable. This is strange, this doesn't make sense. So it's somehow of

01:04:19--> 01:04:23

physical gesture that shows rejection, disgust and denial.

01:04:27--> 01:04:44

Makalu in California Habima or siltstone behavior in Asia, Kimmy matted, Runa Amory, so these people said, we have disbelieved in whatever you came with whatever message you came with. And we have a very strong profound doubts about what you guys say.

01:04:46--> 01:04:59

So that was the general attitude of these people said we had doubts we had doubts. And this is why doubt is not science. Yes, I mean, you can use doubt as a tool in science but in doubt is not science.

01:05:00--> 01:05:10

doubt is not does not give certainty. That's the issue. So when people take doubt as their primary approach to asserting things, that's problematic,

01:05:11--> 01:05:26

as problematic, you can use doubt, to verify physical things. Yes, you can challenge some physical things. But if you use doubts, to challenge spiritual truths that you know, in your Fatah, you will be lost.

01:05:28--> 01:05:28

You will be lost.

01:05:31--> 01:06:05

Anyway, so these are generally the response of these people to their prophets and messengers was a negative one was a negative one. So I'm going to stop here because afterwards Allah will talk about the argument how it goes back and forth between the prophets and messengers, and their people, and how they responded to them and how they received them. And then what the end of them would be insha Allah so we're going to stop here where verse nine will start next time with verse 10 Sure Allah will take no questions if there is any questions

01:06:08--> 01:06:09

no questions

01:06:10--> 01:06:12

you always save us

01:06:40--> 01:06:40

the

01:06:45--> 01:06:45

presidency

01:06:50--> 01:06:52

first of all, I haven't been figured out

01:06:56--> 01:07:00

anymore, but I will add and then we are called worry then bye

01:07:07--> 01:07:07

bye.

01:07:14--> 01:07:15

Working

01:07:23--> 01:07:29

but financial Okay, let me mention the question even question and answer. First one is there any

01:07:31--> 01:07:36

thing that could justify not being good with approval, whatever. No.

01:07:38--> 01:07:42

Nothing justifies being bad to your parents, nothing at all.

01:07:44--> 01:08:12

If parents were negative at some stage in life, they beat the child up and abused the child and mistreated the child. Now when the child becomes an adult, is supposed his past his that was his test, he or she is supposed to reach a point of forgiveness, if they're unable to forgive from the hearts at least, they turn over, they leave that behind their back. And they try to be the best to their parents.

01:08:14--> 01:08:22

So that's what they should, what they should what they should do. So there's no way to justify mistreatment of parents whatsoever.

01:08:23--> 01:08:24

The

01:08:26--> 01:09:02

What if parents aren't negative, still negative, like my parents still take advantage of me, they still abused me, they still mistreat me, and so on and so forth. Yeah, this also does not justify that you must treat them. But if parents are very negative, and there are sometimes parents that are very negative, very judgmental, and they could actually destroy your life, that's possible, they could destroy your self esteem, they could destroy your family, this there are people who are just like this, because they're human beings. Now, if this is the case, you will limit your interaction with them to the least possible without cutting or cutting them off completely. Okay, so maybe if

01:09:02--> 01:09:09

they affect your family, your family doesn't have to visit them doesn't have to be connected to them. So you can maybe see them once a week.

01:09:10--> 01:09:25

Every other week, maybe once a month, limit the damage. Okay, but don't cut them off completely. Unless in very extreme cases. In very extreme cases, there are people who are very toxic. I've seen a couple of cases

01:09:26--> 01:09:44

where they're especially especially daughters, now they are mothers, they are in their 30s 40s. And this she says I can when I see my mother, she destroys me. She destroys me, she's very negative. She knows how to, like, make me feel like like, like dirt. Okay.

01:09:45--> 01:09:53

So in these very extreme cases, we say yeah, stay away. We have very, very extreme negative impact on you. Stay away, stay away from them.

01:09:54--> 01:09:59

But don't mistreat them. Don't miss treat them. Okay.

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

So the bottom line is keep away from them, or see them or check on them, like the least amount of numbers without cutting them off.

01:10:11--> 01:10:24

If you want to go better is check more on them be nicer to them. But going below that bottom line, which is being aggressive towards them negative towards them, no, there's no justification for this whatsoever.

01:10:25--> 01:10:43

The second thing is about psychological issues, people have psychological problems. Now, this is for specialists. If they say that this kind of psychological state that this person has, it does block or does affect rational thinking, we have to take this into consideration.

01:10:44--> 01:10:47

There are psychological states where the person does not think straight,

01:10:49--> 01:11:04

or they have an emotional kind of trauma. And they really do not have good control of themselves. But there's gonna be a discrepancy. I know sometimes in some, because there are different schools within psychology, you will have sometimes

01:11:06--> 01:11:22

like a serial killer, and I would say, Oh, he has psychological issue. Oh, yes, but he's a killer, right? He's a killer. And if you check, he's responsible for his actions. He knows what he's doing. So this person is actually punishable. And they should pay for their crimes.

01:11:23--> 01:11:56

So sometimes some psychological schools, they go too lenient into saying, Oh, this psychological issue, this person is not responsible for the actions. Sometimes they're very lenient in that. Okay. But generally speaking, the ultimate answer of this is with Allah subhanaw taala. He knows if someone is really knows what they are doing or not. But we can have a general assessment if the person who's responsible has a certain level of responsibility and over the actions, then they absolutely Islamically they are responsible. Yeah.

01:11:59--> 01:12:00

Any more questions?

01:12:03--> 01:12:03

Sir.

01:12:09--> 01:12:10

Hulk, Satan Adam?

01:12:29--> 01:12:29

By

01:12:30--> 01:12:39

the creation of other Islam and the refusal of a bliss to prostrate and was there a fire there or no.

01:12:42--> 01:12:51

We know that the bliss is from jinn, but he was with the angels in the company of the angels. And he was doing great worship. So he stood out.

01:12:53--> 01:12:55

When Allah created Adam and Eve salaam

01:12:58--> 01:13:00

IBLEES became jealous.

01:13:01--> 01:13:21

And the ration says that actually bliss when Adam was just physical body before Allah blew the soul into bliss. So Adam and he checked him out and he realized he was hollow inside in the sense he has an inner passage and how to pass it rejected and he said, If he has an inner passage in our passage that shows weakness, dependency,

01:13:23--> 01:13:35

he depends he needs, he needs food, that shows his creation has some dependency in it. Then he says, Let insulet to alagille or he cannot he says, he felt jealous because Allah gave Adam so much honor.

01:13:36--> 01:13:48

It was such a like seemed to be like a celebrated event when Allah created Adam a cinema. So Iblees felt generous. So he said, If I'm given power over you, I shall destroy you.

01:13:50--> 01:13:59

Then obviously, when Allah blew the soul into Adam, and Allah commanded the angels to prostrate themselves before Adam as a sign of glorification, to Allah through Adam.

01:14:01--> 01:14:01

So

01:14:06--> 01:14:09

the punishment of Allah is Severe regardless, we talk about the Hellfire or not.

01:14:11--> 01:14:13

So bliss was aware of this.

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

Bliss was aware of this.

01:14:17--> 01:14:28

So I would say, bliss was aware of the punishment of Allah and he was aware of the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala. But I have nothing specifically from the Quran and Sunnah, saying that.

01:14:29--> 01:14:33

Bliss was promised the Hellfire specifically

01:14:34--> 01:14:37

if he refused Allah's command

01:14:39--> 01:14:46

if you refuse the last command, but we know that Shavon is going to join people in the hellfire, so that's going to be his end. That will be his end.

01:14:48--> 01:14:49

Okay, yeah. So

01:14:51--> 01:14:53

I'm not sure if this answers your question.

01:15:00--> 01:15:02

Get it out of your head, relax

01:15:07--> 01:15:08

experience somebody

01:15:09--> 01:15:10

saying that I was

01:15:17--> 01:15:29

okay, if some something happened in an accident and you say I was at the wrong place at the wrong time, not necessarily something bad. Like, if you now it depends on the perspective that you have, if you're saying this,

01:15:31--> 01:15:33

I would advise against this statement.

01:15:34--> 01:15:56

But if you say this from an operational point of view, from an operational point of view, so if there is a, like there is a, let's say, someone crosses the street, not from the assigned place, not from the pedestrian crossing, by the way, they call it in the UK zebra crossing.

01:15:57--> 01:16:00

So, someone is crossing not from the pedestrian

01:16:02--> 01:16:04

crossing place or same place.

01:16:05--> 01:16:08

And he gets run over by a car

01:16:09--> 01:16:34

in that, in that sense, he could say I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. So from an operational point of view, yes. If someone consumes harmful substance, they might say yes, it was the wrong place at the wrong time. And fine. So if there is a human error in that thing, yes, you can see this in an operational sense, but not in a sense of other

01:16:35--> 01:16:42

kids will cuddle whatever is written is going to happen. So it's the right time is so depends on the perspective. And I think that solves the problem

01:16:45--> 01:16:45

for

01:16:49--> 01:16:49

you

01:16:55--> 01:16:58

Yeah, meaning, here's the deal is having power over them to harm them.

01:17:15--> 01:17:15

Okay,

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

now, we said

01:17:20--> 01:17:28

Millenium said that according to the level of your Eman, Allah will protect you from the disbelievers from their heart, and so on and so forth.

01:17:29--> 01:17:37

That's a general rule, right? When we were talking about something else, we said, we should not take a simplistic approach to things so there's always a bigger context.

01:17:39--> 01:17:52

So there might be some exceptions, where Allah would get the disbelievers to do some harm. Some harm little harm to believers, like the Prophet SAW Salem, tapa, Hema,

01:17:53--> 01:17:59

but the Prophet SAW Salem in Makkah was ridiculed. The camel intestine was put in his back.

01:18:00--> 01:18:37

In a HUD, the Prophet SAW Selim was wounded, right, and his cheeks he lost some of his teeth and so on and so forth. But this is why Seville means Allah will not empower and give the disbelievers power over the believers. So minor harm will happen regardless. But it's the kind of harm where they completely overcome you as an individual as a Muslim as a believer individual will the rule is very strong, that it will apply. But as I said, other rules as a context will have an impact, there will be contributing factors.

01:18:38--> 01:18:41

Okay, so we still have to put everything in its right context.

01:18:42--> 01:18:57

Yeah, I mean, life is context. Life is context. If you miss the context, you can't solve the problem. So anything you have to see it within its bigger context and that bigger context, you have to see it within even the wider context is how things relate to each other.

01:18:59--> 01:19:01

Okay, any more questions?

01:19:06--> 01:19:07

Which one

01:19:09--> 01:19:12

needs a lot of caffeine and Morgana sebelah? I'm not

01:19:15--> 01:19:18

I mean, there have to no one questions this right? Yeah.

01:19:24--> 01:19:30

Yes, but I think it's it's more about this dunya so it's more about the student. Yes.

01:19:31--> 01:19:33

Okay. Last question.

01:19:35--> 01:19:36

You mentioned that

01:19:40--> 01:19:41

patience. So

01:19:45--> 01:19:48

how do you sort of go

01:19:51--> 01:19:55

you remember that on a regular basis, resembling myself when I'm

01:19:56--> 01:19:57

in a situation where I

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

think

01:20:06--> 01:20:16

Yeah, how to grow patients and food and thankfulness, how to grow Sabra and Schuco within oneself. That's what the system, that's what the whole system of Islam does.

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

That's the whole point. If you look at Islam, that's what it builds within you.

01:20:21--> 01:20:52

That's what it builds within you. But the way to keep this in mind, in order to be thankful, you need to be mindful of Allah and His blessings upon you. If you look at everything around you as a blessing, this will help you be thankful. So you can start it as a point. One of the good points actually a good practice to start this is to do this as a daily practice write down and I'm saying writing because it helps you don't have to write but it does enhance the experience. If you write down every day,

01:20:54--> 01:20:58

the say in the morning or in the evening, three things that you thank Allah for

01:21:01--> 01:21:10

simple things, simple things that could be like you had a nice glass of water you just enjoyed it. Thank Allah for that. See.

01:21:11--> 01:21:48

You Hello, Bella can handle Thank you Allah for this glass of water was really beautiful. You had it in the morning, okay, so you're doing it in the evening, say, Allah, thank you for this beautiful glass of water in the morning that I had was wonderful. Something good happened to you. Like you were trying to catch the bus and the driver decided to wait for you. So I haven't been I didn't have to wait 15 or 20 minutes. So towards the end of the day, you remember this, write it in your list, Allah, thank you for making that bus driver. Stop for me, I know it's from you. You cause them to do this. I'm really appreciative feel. Let yourself you know,

01:21:49--> 01:22:09

let yourself indulge in that gratitude. And that feeling of thankfulness that Allah has given you something special. If you do this on a daily basis, you will be surprised that you're gonna start to see a lot of blessings around you. It becomes more of a mental habit. And it makes it easier for you that's where it's at with thankfulness with

01:22:11--> 01:22:12

with us or sober.

01:22:26--> 01:22:36

Cyber is so diverse that it's hard for me to like, pin it down in one practice. But I'd say what would help you in terms of cyber

01:22:37--> 01:22:43

is that always looking at the end, the far end of things.

01:22:46--> 01:22:55

And the stick in front of him he says man, tell him mahal Afia Han at Lee Murata. The one who can see

01:22:57--> 01:23:08

the wellness and the benefit at the end, it will be easier for him to handle patients because patients is bitter and sour.

01:23:09--> 01:23:16

But when you see the final end, you will be able to put up with this. I want to mention it just an example. Just to make it a bit more,

01:23:17--> 01:23:20

more abstract or more concrete.

01:23:22--> 01:23:31

Yesterday, I was leading telawi in the masjid in ceramics and sort of Clarington and Curtis new offshore.

01:23:32--> 01:23:39

And I was dealing with salah, and I know my son was six years old. I know he's not going to stand on the line.

01:23:41--> 01:23:46

So what I do, I put him sometimes next to me. So I made him pray next to me.

01:23:48--> 01:24:11

And for the first time he does this, when I recite I don't like to hear noise if I hear noise I get distracted, I lose my focus. I can't read. So I'm reading and I realize he's reading with me and with a loud voice signal factor and your deciding factor Hamdu lillahi, Rabbil Alameen are really read. So I got like I reached a point. I couldn't take it anymore. I couldn't focus.

01:24:12--> 01:24:24

And we have a sore loser was reciting. And he doesn't know that. But he's just sort of catching my my tone. And he's just with me like this and this annoys me so much.

01:24:25--> 01:24:58

So I said to myself when I make when I finished this thorough cause I'm gonna, I'm gonna tell him to just come down here. So I was really agitated. But I said to myself, my son is shy but the fact that he's standing in front of a huge number of people and he's resigning and he has no concern about what I said that's a very good thing. I hope this would help him. Be Able maybe tomorrow later on with his future to have no issues with leading salon meeting people like or in public being able to speak

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

at

01:25:00--> 01:25:05

thought about this and I said that's the benefit in the future. Automatically I lost my annoyance.

01:25:06--> 01:25:17

I lost my annoyance. I'm not annoyed anymore because now I associated his noise or his the sound that he was making with a better future for himself and straight away.

01:25:18--> 01:25:37

So when you as Imams claim says when you see the benefit at the end, it's easier for you to be patient comes easier for you. So whatever happens, always look, always look at how things will turn out to be later on, that will help you be patient. It's more of what we call have a strategic view.

01:25:38--> 01:26:02

You're going through a very hard time difficult time to say, you know, in three days from now, this will be part of the past. Wow, this will be relief. You're no longer trapped in that moment. So seeing what's going to be in the future that actually helps you develop patience. So hopefully this is gonna work. Try it. Try it out. See, play. Monica Lo Fi comes up and we'll close the last day of Sunday. Awesome.
