And then Hamdulillahi Mohamad who want to stay in on a stock photo now Lulu human shallowly and fusina will see Dr. Marina you had the Allahu Philomel Villa where you live with her her de la or shadow Allah Allah Allah Allah wa the hula Cherie kala shadow under Mohammed Abdullah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa early he was happy he was seldom at the Sleeman cathedral, our bed
and sha Allah have been. We've done with the book of Sheikh Abdullah mana Sadie. We finished explaining it and it was only movida will hire to say that the beneficial means to a tranquil life.
So I've been thinking and debating as to what to start with next.
So I'm leaning more towards starting a new series with the title Lacan can fu Kasasa him a block, which is a verse from the Quran nukkad kana fear Kasasa him hey bruh indeed in their stories, there are lessons. So it will be shallow, an open platform for stories. So we will be taking some of the prophets stories, the stories of the prophets and the messengers,
from the seer of the prophets of Allah when he was a lamb from the
stories of the companions and the tabby in the early generations. We have also the stories of the scholars of Islam. We have also the stories of Bani Israel.
There are also contemporary stories, where there are lessons and benefits. So that will give us quite a flexibility and leeway, inshallah with the topic. And hopefully the point will always be drawing lessons from a beautiful and profound story. So this will be inshallah the case from now on. And we might even talk about stories that haven't happened yet. Stories that haven't had haven't happened yet. Yeah, like the story of the gel. It's a story. It's a story, the story of a Maddie and he said I was going to come the story of lmsc Hara, Islam and he comes back.
So all of these are stories. So whatever we find beneficial will actually take the story. And then so we will relate it as a story as a narrative, and then we will take lessons from it insha Allah.
Today, the topic is a summary of the message of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
a summary of the message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Oftentimes, we think we take things for their surface value, we don't really delve into them. There was a beautiful incident when Allahu Anhu was the Khalifa. He sent
he sent her the feminine via man to Yemen, he sent Khalifa in the Yemen to a lemon in order to be a governor over there to be a governor over there. So he gave him a very profound advice, very profound way of advice. Among the things he told he told me, he said, welfare him alpha female. Oddly enough, he came in Alamosa in a firm and firm understanding, understanding comprehension, how are they familiar man is one of the scholars among the companions, one of the scholars among the companions, I'm going to be saying to him, alpha alpha. The main thing here is understanding proper comprehension. Why is he saying this? To her the familiar man because a lot of times so so many
people who had the knowledge, people who probably memorize the Quran, people who have learned a lot of Hadith, but they don't know how to implement it. They don't know how to implement the implemented where it doesn't belong. They don't understand it fully. They don't understand the situation where it's being implemented. And that's why Omar bin Abdul Aziz Rahim, Allah great Khalifa, he said, man emila Be malaria alum, Miami, la vie, Malayalam Kanima, you've seen to UC thirimanne, my useless you one who acts upon what he doesn't know. And what he doesn't know. That means if you have a situation, you know, something of the Quran, you know, something of the Sunnah. And maybe you know a
little bit about the situation but you don't understand how through how all of these play together, how all of these fit together. If you try to pass a judgment or act upon something without proper knowledge of how this should work together, then the kind of corruption and the kind of evil you would be bringing about is definitely will or will definitely be greater than the good that you intended to bring about. So it's very important to understand Understand, this is why she can Islam immunity me, he says about the Mufti or about someone who's trying to make a change
He says he needs
certain things to be able to implement the that knowledge that he has. First of all, he says he needs knowledge of a hook mashallah a
third element will hook Michelle a he needs knowledge of the Islamic ruling about this specific issue. Number two, what He requires is for men V worker will have an understanding of the situation, a very profound understanding of the situation. And I'll give you an example. And then he says, feminine Aamir Khan into who Dalek can a facade who acts Solomon Salah Hey, so he doesn't have this kind of understanding, then the evil he will bring about will definitely be greater than the good
A person will come to you, for example, let's say
let's blame it on the brothers and keep the sisters
innocent. So a husband comes to you. And he says, you know, I'm telling my wife to do something and she's refusing to do it.
And in Islam, the wife is supposed to obey the husband.
And this happens a lot with a lot of Imams. So the Imam would say to the husband, no, your wife should listen to you, she should obey you.
So the husband goes back to the wife. And he says to her, the Imam says, You have to obey me. And sometimes the command would be about that specific thing about that specific thing. Now, what did the Imam do here? Where did he go wrong? He went wrong in taking a glimpse into this situation, assuming that's the whole story. That's the whole story. What he should do is he should inquire from the wife. Why aren't you responding to your husband? What's the problem?
So maybe she has an excuse. Maybe she has an issue that
maybe there is a conflict. And I'll share with you something I receive a lot of questions. A lot of questions specifically on the phone. The questions that are received on the phone, someone is asking me, Is this haram or halal?
And straight away? I've developed the sensitivity to recognize that kind of that tone of voice. And I'll say why are you asking? So know, is it halal or haram?
I will straightaway now jump to the conclusion and say to the person, who are you arguing with? Usually husband and wife? Okay, someone had, okay, one of them had something in a halacha or lesson
or they read something on online. So now they have in common with this Halal this Haram is that what works or doesn't work like this? Now it's a fight.
So the husband or the wife says, I'm going to prove myself right. So they pick up the phone they call the Imam.
Is it halal or haram? What do you say about this? Oh, the often the question comes, isn't this haram?
Isn't this haram? So they actually give you a hint? That that's the answer they are expecting. So when you ask, you realize it's a conflict, because I remember when I first came here, I received this phone call and someone said something about the relationship between husband and wife about rights and obligations. And he said, is that the obligation on the wife, you know, to obey your husband, if he's telling her to do such and such? And I said, Yes, that's right. I was going to explain, then all of a sudden, I can hear the guy saying, You see, I told you.
Sorry, I was on the speaker. She already had this. And I was set up. So I learned my lesson.
Anyway, so the importance, the importance here is of alhfam the understanding some people take the Quran, try to implement it, they don't understand it. That's very common today. The prophets of Salaam, by the way, pointed to this, pointing to this, and I need you to understand this a disclaimer. I'm not putting down on memorizing the Quran. And I don't put it down. But it has been exaggerated. Big time. Big time. I will call it at the time of the Prophet SAW Salem. Witch we call half of today is someone who has done the Quran in terms of memorization meanings, acting upon it and that means he lives by the Quran, it's become a lifestyle for him. Apart from this, he would not
be called the car, he would not be called, he will not be given that name.
People did not just memorize words that wasn't known at that time at all. And in the Quran, or in the Hadith you never find, you know, what do you find that Allah Subhana Allah is calling us to make heaven of the Quran.
You know, when in during the conference, Sheikh Mohammed Ali was here and he received a question about memorizing Quran and things like that. And he shared a beautiful story. Actually, he shared it with me privately afterwards by easy so and he said, I shall be Allahu anha I shall do
I want her when she wanted to pray pm Elena and Ramadan.
She didn't know much of the Quran. When I showed the organizer for Korea. She is the scallop. She's a scholar among the companions. The Companions used to come and seek fatwa from her.
When she struggled for verses she didn't memorize so much. She didn't memorize so much.
When he mentioned the story when he she was accused
in the Hadith and if and the slander incident, she she said
she wanted to
say to the Prophet SAW Selim at one instance, that mammoth holy war matha LUCAM Illa Katha Lee Wylie the use of this way she she said, My example with you is just like the example of the father of Prophet Yusuf. She even forgot that it was Jakob
she forgot it was Jakob.
So memorization is good, but it should come with a package. So people memorize Quran now they think they've become an animal.
The more eyes the fewer Hadith, they attended a couple of lessons, they think I know it all. So I can make a judgement. So they start approaching people with harshness and judgment and criticism. That's not what Islam is about. It's never like this. It's never like this. Where what's the what's the mistake? There is the understanding, there's no understanding. There is no understanding at all. Imam Emanuel Josie says in his book, Seidel kata, that's a profound and beautiful book. This is not me. I am. There's not enough time. This is Neil Josie. He came about 150 years before Immanuel pain.
And his writings were so beautiful as well, so beautiful. And he was a prolific writer. He was a prolific writer, he said himself because he was an avid reader. He said, I read in my life more than more than 20,000 books.
More than 20,000 books, so he was a bookworm. He used to read a lot. And he's the one who gave one day in Damascus. He gave
an advice he gave a talk in the masjid.
And so there were so many people flocking to the masjid listening to his talk. And during that talk, he talked about Islam, and he talked about Allah and he talked about paradise. He talks about the hellfire.
The crowd drew attention. It drew the attention of the Christians and the Jews who used to live in the city.
So a lot of them came to see what was going on. So they heard most of the talk. 1000 of them took their shahada on that day, 1000 of them took their shahada
just by listening to images even he says in his books like The hotter
he says there are people today who learn a lot who learn the Quran, who learned the Hadith. Then they he said they basically they raised their swords against everyone to prove them wrong and prove themselves rights. So they are happy when find people's mistakes. And then he says something very beautiful. He says well, Aamir Khan had us on yourself. He says this was never the demeanor or the way of the self of the early generations. Then he mentions to have his own scholars, to his own scholars. He said there were quiet people that never could critique anyone else. And they would go to give advice in the way that is best and they were very balanced. He said these people how they
He said every time they recited Quran, these people cried in the Salah, in the Salah. So he said when there were crying, they were carving something in my heart. That's the love of Allah subhanaw taala. So he said I benefited from these two people. Then he said, Can Allah Tala itself, Lamia Kuno Yun Tati sunnah ahead. Wala buena radula. He said they were upon the way of a self. They never criticized the person. They never engaged in backbiting.
So that's what this call is say about the way of our elder generations. Now, let's take it back to the point of alhfam alhfam the advice of Amana Hatha, so, the problem with these people who critique and who are judgmental or and who try always to you know have a judgement about everything is that they lack understanding, they lack the understanding, what is understanding understanding is that you see what is beyond the apparent beyond the apparent So, today inshallah we will talk about withdraw to look at the message of the prophets of salaam What is it about as Allah Subhana Allah talks about it in the Quran?
Allah subhanaw taala refers to Prophet Muhammad in the Quran he says who will lead the battlefield Omiya in Allah sunnah mean home yet Lu Allah him i at its its Allah Who sent among these illiterate people, a messenger from amongst themselves yet Lu la him a yachtie here we
dates, the verses of the Quran the words of ALLAH to these people. That's the general obligation on every prophet May Allah Rasool li in little Bella. Each prophet has to convey the message he has to just relate the words of Allah subhanaw taala but the Prophet saw some of them was not only obligated to convey the message, he was given two missions, two missions two things he must achieve. He must achieve two things and they are in the same verse yet through Allah him at wa use a key him
while you are limo home al Kitab I will use a key him when you are limo home test Kia and Talim test Kia and tell him to profits awesome was supposed to achieve this in his companions.
His companions were mentioned in the Torah and in the NG and the Gospels. They were mentioned
methadone and Victora.
Because they were in a holiday shop, Zara who Festo so they were mentioned in the last verse and saw that and the fact that they were actually mentioned in the in the in the Scriptures before the companions of the prophet of Salem. So the program was meant to achieve two things among the companions to Ischia and tell him to Ischia and tell him, that's what Islam is.
to ski and tell him if you reach a high level into Skia you reach a high level entirely him and you reach the apex of Islam.
You reach the apex of Islam, the prophet Allah subhanaw taala, how does he talk and these two things appear in the Quran and in the Sunnah in different words, but they are talking about the same aspects and that's what we call alhfam. Understanding, when you see the different terminology that's been used, and it's referring to the same thing. That's what alhfam actually means. So you summarize Islam into two simple things, very profound things, you master them you master Islam,
Allah subhanaw taala refers to the Prophet of Islam and the Quran what does he say about him Salah to najem, when Najmi either how,
man now herbalists are Hebrew come, one Eiroa these are two things MALBA Allah so He become one of our Allah so Allah is squaring by the stars. When Najmi
then Allah Subhan Allah says when alleged meet either Hawa Malmo Lhasa Hey welcome, your friend, your companion talking about Mohamed, Salah Mau Bala. He did not go astray.
He is not misguided. He's not misguided. What is this?
This is him telling him he's not missing. So that means that he doesn't have false knowledge. He has true knowledge. So he knows so he has him and tell him one as our other thing wire. LED wire is the opposite of Teskey.
rewire is the opposite of Teskey in the Arabic language. So the prophets are Salam reached the apex in Taleem L and in Teskey. That's how Allah praises him in the Quran. The Prophet SAW Selim says in one Hadith, and that what will be Ibrahim and adapted to be this understanding was present even with Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam.
The problem says and that what will be Ibrahim the process and he says, I am the Dawa. I am the dua of Prophet Ibrahim, what is the dua of Prophet Ibrahim?
It's unsalted Bacala but now I see him or Surah minimum Allah sent into them a messenger from amongst them yet through Allah him at
where you are Lima home al Kitab our hikma use a key him to cow Brahim and Islam started with what you are Lima home. Then use a key him your limo whom he teaches them and why he was a key Him purifies them and elevates them.
Allah subhanaw taala responded how not your only Momo is a key him Allah responded with using key him while you are Limon. You will find this in Surah Al Imran and you will find this in surah. Juma Allah puts Teskey before him. Ibrahim alayhi salam put him before Teskey Allah Subhana Allah put in auto Ischia before him, then after after that he put in. So this is what you will find. The summary of Islam is that it's element Ischia. Now, why does Allah want the Prophet SAW Selim to achieve element Ischia?
Because humans when they are born, they lack these two things.
and they left his gear. Allah Subhan Allah says in surah Natalio Allahu Allah Raja crewmember, Tony Omaha he come later Allah Munna che Allah brought you from the wombs of your
and you know nothing in that state.
So man is born ignorant. We don't know anything.
We don't know anything in our heads in our minds.
But the fact that we are born without ailment without Tez Kia is mentioned in another place in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala says in Alagna, Amanda and SML it will be will be bad we have offered the trust to the heavens, the mountains, the earth, for abena Yemen and how they refused the decline
was *ing them and they felt so bad for themselves they take it it's such a heavy you know, wait,
what hammer the hell inside and man took it? What does Allah conclude the verse within a whole corner
of a lumen Jehoiada volume is like how we the wire
volume is the opposite of Teskey volume is the opposite of Teskey Jaya hula ignorance is the opposite of LM.
So man is born without and without Ischia. That's why the process that I'm supposed to achieve these two things, your place in Paradise will be determined by your level in both these things. And tusky how much energy you have, how much Teskey you have, this is what will decide your grades on the Day of Judgment.
So you want to know your place in paradise you check yourself how much oil you have, how much this clear you have. That's it.
Simple as that. That's what that's what the message of the Prophet SAW Salem is. Who's the highest in paradise who's the highest human being in paradise. The Prophet SAW Selim, what is that place called? Was that level called?
What is it called?
Alma Carmel, Muhammad but it's also called Yeah, Al MACOM. When Muhammad it's called with Sierra under Muhammad Muhammad. This is why after the Adana we are taught to make the DUA
at Mohammed and we'll see you later. We'll foglia what I thought McCollum and Mahmoud any lady what, by the way, in Nicola totally fooled me ad is not part of the Hadith that's not authentic. So the authentic hadith Robina RT Muhammad Mohammed and vasila throat alarm it Mohammed Allahumma earthing Mohammedan loc lettable Felina. Well, Beth who? Arm al Mahmoud, a lady what? That's the authentic narration called mandala diwata. So why is the Prophet Solomon the highest level in Jana? Because he achieved the highest levels of Elementor skier of Elementor ski and that's proposal talked about this about himself, he said in knee to the companions in Nila Alam welcome Billa What shall come
learn who I am the one who knows most about Allah among you so in I am the highest workshare come now and I am the one who fears Allah the most among you. fear comes from test gear. It's the results it's a fruit of test gear. So the province of Salem is the highest in ailment Ischia.
So every believer should have a share of knowledge and of Teskey if you don't have a share there, you are very likely to be a hypocrite.
Very likely to be a hypocrite who says this The messenger SallAllahu himself
the messengers was a How does He say this?
The prophets of salaam says in the authentic hadith see if attorney large letters to me any female nafdac two traits, two characteristics, two descriptions. They can never be found together in a in a hypocrite. And I'm gonna refer to things
because if these two things are found in one person, this person must be a believer must be a believer.
So he says these two things can never be combined together. In a hypocrite, what are they? He says who snow some tin has no scent, good demeanor. Good character, and good character and demeanor is a fruit of Teskey
has no 17 Who can complete the Hadith has no something
so if attorney law touched me and if he Monique just know something. Warfare conflict Dean reported by Muslim will feel confident in an understanding of the deen knowledge of the deen.
See how these things run through Islam. These two things are run through Islam. They run through Islam.
So head to head is made of these two things together.
There are people who know that Allah is the Creator, and the sustainer and the Lord. There are people who know that Allah is the Most Merciful. Allah is above his creation. They know the names and attributes of Allah they approve of them, like shaytaan shadow knows this by the way.
And they know also that Allah is the only one who has the right to be worshipped.
Lama Buddha, they have been in law who they know that Allah is the only one who has the right to be worshipped. We should not associate partners with Allah in worship, we should not make dua to other than Allah, we should not make Salah to other than Allah, we should not make Tawakkol on other than Allah. We should not prostrate except to Allah. They know this.
But that does not enter them into Paradise because they have this ailment
but they don't have the test key. The test key that makes them live by that knowledge.
So Shavon knows all of this, but he doesn't say paradise. Why because he doesn't have the test here the test kiya that purification and that growth Okay, which allows him to act upon the knowledge he has.
So if you want if you want
to improve yourself in Islam prove yourself in these two things and and to Ischia knowledge of Islam and to Ischia. Everything in the Quran serves these two, everything in the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim serves these two you know why you pray, to increase yourself in both you fast to increase yourself in both.
These two things are also referred to in the Quran. They are referred to in the Quran in a different for all from a different angle. And I spoke about this in one of my notebooks
the Quran where I said the Quran, and these are the words of Eminem am immunochemical Xia, he says the Quran gives two things to human beings, it gives life and gives what light
nor, nor what higher. neuron or higher Allah Subhan Allah says in surah tunas, a woman can be eaten for a hyena Who was your Allah who will know more on yam she behave Ignis command method who football nomads, a woman Kana may 10. He now is the one who has been dead. Then we gave him life.
Was there another who knew one and we made light for him or her? Is he like someone who was living in darkness?
So Allah Samantha is saying that's what the Quran gifts,
life and light, light is knowledge. Light is knowledge. Life is this gear.
So this helps us summarize them in a little bit meaningful way. So what is knowledge? Knowledge is light. It tells you what's right from what's wrong. It shows you which way to follow.
Life is to Ischia. It's the life of the heart.
It's the life of the heart Ischia. What is his key A lot of people ask what is this key? It is purity and growth. It's the life of the heart, the life of the heart. And by the way, these two things are interdependent,
and this explains why a hypocrite even though they might get some knowledge
because they do not have his Kia they have him but because they do not have this Kia they cannot grow in knowledge they cannot grow.
Why? Because they work that way when you have to Ischia, it's life of the heart. It prepares you and it puts you or it qualifies you to learn something opens your mind to something so you learn it and absorb it. That knowledge opens your heart to a higher level of Ischia.
When you settle in this new level of tests here, now you are qualified and you are ready to learn something you are unable to absorb and figure out high level of knowledge. This level of knowledge
prepares you for a higher level of Ischia, so you get a higher level of Teskey and life. This level of test Kia now has elevated elevated you to a level where you are able to understand things about
The religion of Allah you were not able to understand in a previous level, so you get to a higher level of knowledge and you keep moving one step at a time. One step into Ischia, one step in and this is how you grow.
Without this, your knowledge will be obsolete. You will memorize Quran, you will memorize Hadith, you can quote them, you can quote fatawa and you can probably even quote books, and you can talk for hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours and hours from your memory.
But you will not benefit from any of that and you won't be able to see this fact.
And that's the meaning of the verse what Allah subhanaw taala says in salted hash, Nestle wallet Hakuna Killa Dina Shula for unsere home and Fusa home. Don't be like the ones who forgot about Allah. When you forget about Allah, it's not knowledge because you're not Allah.
Best Ischia. That means Allah is not on your mind, when your heart is not alive, and it's not pure Allah is not on your mind. And that's what Allah Subhana Allah is saying They forgot Allah. So they forgot Allah for Anselm and Fusa home so Allah subhanaw taala caused them to forget and to be misled
from what benefits them thus the Tafseer of the verse
so without this kind of duality, this kind of duality of TOS Kia and then a higher level, you're qualified now to a higher level of tests Kia, you qualify to a higher level of LM and this is how you keep moving on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on. This is why the early generations like remember the hubby when he was talking about them he quoted a word someone describing the early generations he's saying can that's how your family him our
like the last days were the best in their life. Why because these people were moving on consistently growing into skier growing and growing into ski a growing and growing intensity a growing and growing intensity growing and they reached levels that are unimaginable, unimaginable in Mammoth Abbey talks about one person I think he's to be an authority he said
so if you had a theory towards the like the last few years in his life he said well Allah He like somebody said to him, if if you know death is gonna come to you today what would you do? What would you add to your daily routine?
So that would be something valuable. He said, I won't be able to add anything.
Because everything I want to do and everything I could possibly do and fit within my day have already reached that level.
My day and night a full
my day and night and are full completely
by the Soufiane authority. Just some something on the side.
He used to love sweets. He used to love sweets.
So who knows? You know the
this the sweets is very famous in. in Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon. Specifically the origin of it is believed to be Palestine especially especially Nablus canasa, kunafa hornos. can offer
can offer? Yes. Okay. kunafa was actually in the old times was still there. So at the time of Savannah thought it was called Alpha Lou that wasn't as we know it today, but very close to it, as if Lou that alpha with it. So So Fianna thorry he used to eat falou that every day, after Isha, he would have like a plate of Kapha fluid, and he would eat it then he would say he has a famous name. And he said, if for a second could the who. So when he ate that he would pray all night.
He would pray all night. So he said could in the first hackathon Mikado, he said
you know, if you have a horse, you feed it well, then you get it to work really hard. So that's what he said about his body. Basically, he wanted to to push himself too so he used to pray most of the night. So he would eat fellow that after Isha would give him so much energy and he would stand in prayer for most of the night for most of the night.
I think many people now are going to thinking of Knapp Anna
So, these these early generations they like they did their best in developing themselves within tests Kia and l
Skia and skin now Emanuel am wrote a book about these two things.
And the book today is printed in two volume three volumes. Some versions are four volumes. And it's one of his most famous books.
And it's called My daddy Joe. As Sally Keane Madera who is the station's of the worshipers, that's how they translated
my daddy to Sadie King. What is the Book about? It's, it's in the Tafseer of one verse. One verse in Surah Fatiha what's the verse?
A year can I Budo?
What year can stain? Yeah, can I borrow? What Yeah, can stain him? No, I am in that book explains. he expounds a lot upon this. And he saw, he says
in order to fulfill iAk and Embudo, it is you that you worship Allah, Allah, you need these two things. Because worship, that's what it means. It has these two things. You need the test gear, to have to hate and floss to Allah to worship Him alone. So when you do something, you do it for Allah. And you know, you need the knowledge to know how to worship Allah. Because you can't worship Allah based on your desires and whims. It has to be based on the guidance of Allah. So you need knowledge. And if you don't, if you have knowledge, but you don't have the motive, and the drive to worship Allah alone, and that's what Ischia is, you want worship Allah.
And in order to achieve esteana Yaquina Stein, it's your help that we seek you also need knowledge. You also need knowledge, in order to know to know that it's only Allah who's helped you need,
you need knowledge.
And in order to limit yourself to Allah and only seek His help, you need to Skia that still hate because you will be tempted to seek help from other people.
You will be tempted to focus on Allah subhanaw taala and realize that and he says, in order to realize that it's only Allah that really can help that and everything is in the hands of Allah. So you can see beyond the immediate reality so when you get your paycheck, you know for sure, it is not from your workplace, it's not from them, it's not from the management. It's not listen to what Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran woman Ramita is the one to whom Allah can Allah Allah Tala. You did not kill them. There was it was a battle. Allah Subhan Allah it says you did not kill them. It was ALLAH who killed them.
Your mind is gonna jump and say, Well, I chopped off his head. I killed him. But let's say from top to toe, you did not kill them. It's Allah who killed them. What is Allah talking about?
Allah is saying you said you should see beyond your physical reality. See beyond that.
If it were not for Allah, if first Allah did not write down and allow him I feel that this man should be killed by you, you would not kill him.
If Allah did not give you power, you will not be able to kill him. If Allah did not give you a sword, you would not kill him. If Allah did not destined both of you to be together in that spot, you will not kill him.
So it's Allah, you're just you're just acting out. In that sense, you're just acting out the word of Allah.
So you should see the power of Allah and the power of yourself in that moment.
And this requires to Ischia.
This requires to Ischia. You can never see this unless you have a high level of test here. You might Okay, so in your in your mind. Yes, it's a lot, that's fine. But you haven't you haven't grasped it. When do you grasp it? You'll remember when we said you have to Skia then you qualify to a higher level vein.
Then this qualifies to a high level of Ischia, then that qualifies you to a higher level of elements, so on and so forth. So, when you reach a higher level of Skia, now your mind is so fresh and clear and transparent, to see realities as they really are. And see beyond that, you know, I am says something very profound. And for many people, they won't be able to understand it. And the reason is, they have not worked on tisski yet. Am I am says in that book, my dad just said he can he talks about his default. And he saw he talks about repentance Tober and he says on talks about vicar. His point on liquor is very clear. He says when you make vicar of Allah and you remember you
saying Subhan Allah and Hamdulillah he said don't see yourself making the cut because you are not
that's like the verse he's saying don't see yourself making the deck
because you are not making the Dhikr
It is Allah who initiated the dhikr.
Allah mentioned you first in the book, and Allah destined you in the book. And Allah gave you the trophy if he wrote down in his book that you actually remember his name he made you remember him. So he mentioned you before you mentioned him. So dimension comes from Allah first. It doesn't even come from you. You are just a conduit. You're just a vehicle,
of the vicar of Allah. That's it. So he says, The vicar comes from Allah and goes through you. And it comes back to Allah subhanaw taala. And he says, a profound statement, many people, and I say many people won't understand this. He's saying for what that your Wilmoth core is talking about? Allah says, Allah who is remembering, and it's Allah Who,
who is remembered. Some people misunderstand these words, and they think, oh, it's Allah and everything. No, no, that's different. They're just saying that you, when you do good things, you don't see yourself at all. You see, that's actually Allah caused you to do this. That's it. It's not even you doing it.
When you, not everyone can reach that level, unless they work on themselves into Skia and dischi and Interscan. And, and this is when you will start to see realities for what they are, and you will not be captive to the physical, immediate reality. And that doesn't mean you will live outside of this world. No, you will still attend to this physical reality, but you see a greater context of reality. You can see a greater reality, so you can see things for what they are. And this is where Al Basilar comes about. This is where this kind of insight and intuition comes about in the life of the believer.
And when a person reaches a high level of this
strange things happen. Just like oh my God when he was a member, and he wasn't Medina, and the Muslim army, where was that in Iraq? The Muslim army was in Iraq and they were fighting against the Persians. Amana haka is giving the fatwa he stops he pauses in the middle of the fatwa. Then he says yes at El Jabon. Yah, Surya, Surya, Al Devon. So in the middle of the hotbar He is calling upon Sati what is Surya he's in Iraq. I'm going to stop I'm going to help dog was in Medina Saudi Arabia was in Iraq
there was no telecommunication at the time.
I'm gonna have bomb wasn't on a speaker or microphone.
Surya basically heard I'm gonna hottub all that distance he heard it.
I'm gonna hop up saw the situation. Sorry ahead. I'm gonna hardtop and he realized that the Persians were turning around the mountain to attack them from behind.
So he took note of that and he managed to change the direction of the army to avoid that kind of attack.
How did this happen? Allah causes people to reach that level. Listen to Abdullah Al Maktoum, one of the great, the blind companion. I'm delighted Amit Maktoum. He's the one who came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam. When the porcelain was speaking to Abuja hello and the main people in Maccha he came to the Prophet Solomon, he was asking him about something the prophets of salaam felt like I want to talk to these guys. First, let me talk to these guys because they seem to be responsive. So the Prophet saw them frowned at him, and turned away from him. So Allah Subhana Allah revealed I Besa Allah, that man, you know, he says, he says, when the person makes the law, and they
go to sleep, so they make wudu before they go to sleep.
He says, their head, sleeps on their pillow,
but their soul goes to the seventh heaven.
And it places itself before the Throne of Allah subhanho wa taala. And it prostrates itself and it remains in prostration until that person wakes up in that hour. That's how the Lord normally Maktoum the great companies in the era Toba for Manam. For Inaho, Yarborough razza. Who Allah ma Jae Hee
for totally Euro who in a summer is bi T. Feta studio data algebra man, whatever data you straight to the man Nomi.
Then he says if a person reaches a higher level of Eman, he says his soul never leaves that frustration in front of the house of Allah subhanaw taala.
When does this happen when you reach a high level of AIM, high level of Teskey high level so our aim is not about holding information in your head, because you will misuse it if you don't have to Ischia. This is why the early generations when they
learned like a tabula and they said to alumna at the full button liminal in we learn the added the HELOC which is from test gear. We learn the clock on the abdomen the test gear and then we learnt the L.
Some people sat with Imam Malik they said
Julius Nam Al Imam Malik.
Natalia Moomin. Hola.
So we sat with Imam Malik to learn his Hadith. So Imam Malik was sharing this hadith collections of Hadith and they were learning all of this from Mata alumna Hadith. So we learned all of his Hadith, all the Hadith that Imam Malik has narrated, we have learned that we have documented it
from Jasna in the Hornet who don't mean same to he, then we sat with him to learn from his demeanor, from his character from the beauty of his character.
In Imam Ahmed,
half of his students sat with him to learn his Hadith. So that hadith he was regenerating a lead they were writing it down and documenting it. The other half, they said, they sat in the Halaqa just to look at Imam Muhammad.
Just to look at him, how beautiful of a person he was. That's it. So they had so much enjoyment. So much pleasure, pleasure. Just looking at Imam Muhammad, they're speaking and teaching. That's it.
So that's why, in some narrations,
it says that a true believer is someone when you see them, they remind you of Allah.
When you see them, you you just say subhanallah
just their presence reminds you of Allah subhanaw taala because these people are with Allah subhanaw taala with Allah subhanaw taala. So
in order for us to be good Muslims, we need to develop in these two things, aim and test key how? That's the big question. That's the big question. It's not so straightforward.
I don't have any like drinks solutions that you drink them, and you have a higher level of ailment Ischia? If I had that I'll become a billionaire.
There's not an it doesn't happen like this.
How does this happen?
It is in the hadith of one companion. He said we used to learn five verses from the Quran fenetre Allah Murphy ha mean la mia will Amman. So we used to take five verses from the Quran, learn the knowledge in them and act upon them.
act upon them. And then we would move on to another five verses.
Simple as this as simple as this, every day, take a portion from the Quran that is for you to learn to say every week, say I'm going to learn fi I'm going to learn this page, I will learn it. So I will learn how to recite it, how to read it, how to recite it, I will start memorizing it. I have a week to memorize it. And I will check one Tafseer and we'll start learning the meanings. And I will see what I can do what I can implement any of those things.
And do your five daily prayers and do your vicar do your decree there is nothing better for the heart than the remembrance of Allah. Some scholars said the heart was created for the remembrance of Allah
for them, do you know what the people in paradise find happiness in?
Now there is no obligations upon them into paradise. Everything is there
in their daily life in paradise. Do you know what they enjoy most?
And they do it all the time. The prophets are seldom said you will have Moon at the speed camera you will have come up to the homeowner nervous.
You know when you breathe? Are you thinking about taking in taking you know pushing out air?
Are you think are you consciously breathing? Do you do an effort like with effort? Or is it effortless? It's effortless. It's just happening. The people in paradise this be that it's just like breathing for them. It's just like breathing breathing. Why? Because Allah is gonna give them everything that will
you know yield pleasure and their pleasure is in a room in remembering Allah subhanaw taala there are many people throughout the ages who have reached that level of sweetness through the remembrance of Allah.
The reason we don't feel that beauty and that sweetness is that we are just remembering with our tongues. Remembering we are watching Teskey is to remember with your heart
Remember with your heart. When you say Subhan Allah feel it live, it sends shivers through your body. Subhan Allah, Allah is High above everything. Allah is greater than all of our imagination. Allah is beyond all our expectations. That's what it means. Subhan Allah, so feel it flow. You know, if you Say Subhan Allah one time, that's better for you than saying SubhanAllah 1000 times just like Subhan Allah Subhanallah Subhanallah Subhanallah Subhanallah Subhanallah Subhanallah Subhanallah telling you that doesn't count. scholars have argued does it count or doesn't count? I side, I start with the opinion of the scholars like MLK who says it doesn't count. It doesn't count. It just
Because he says, as the Kuru assala 10 Little Calbee Lacell in the sun. We're in a Melissa who told you man, he says, vicar is meant for the heart is an action of the heart. The tongue is just there as a as a cursor, as a pointer. That's where the tongue is therefore. So when you make vicar make sure you are making the kind of Allah that you are connected to Allah, that's when you say Allahu Akbar, it should shake you. Allah is greater than anyone and I'm mentioning his name now, and I am given the privilege to mention the name of Allah subhanaw taala.
So the vicar is profound, and I shared this beautiful statement from an excellent basally I'm going to share it again, so profound is so beautiful. And it showed you how these people made vicar. He said caneta that
when at Africa we used to make vicar like remember Allah subhanaw taala Why not difficult to contemplate? What are the meanings of these words? Try to think about them absorb their meanings that have occurred through men are who do be tougher call reality the call. Well, Victor CReality have a call. So we used to alternate make the first call until the call remembrance and contemplation remembrance and contemplation so basically putting our hearts in the vicar putting our hearts in the vicar
when are all do be together Korea Allah tougher Korea will be tougher Korea Allah Tada Karuna Luba pocket
for evil Kulu Bula smile, Anwar Opsahl and we would get our hearts to speak out. You see what because we would get our hearts to speak out until our hearts really indeed spoke. Then he says lo and behold, it turned out that the hearts have eyes and ears, they have sight and they have hearing for either Hulu Bula spur on what absorbed. What does that mean? That means law, you know, hearts have a life of their own.
Hearts have a life of their own. Most of us live half a life. We live half conscious, some, you know semi conscious.
Because we live in here. And we are completely disconnected from this. There is another world in existence. Your heart can feel it and can know it. It's the whole world. Your heart is equipped to know it and feel it and put you in touch with it. But we are completely disconnected from it. Why? Because we don't when we are disconnected from our hearts. We are living mainly in our heads. We are living mainly in our heads and we are missing out. We're missing out on the bigger facts of life.
So this is why you should always take a break from your daily routine. Take a moment of contemplation, a moment of vicar. If you are in a process of doing something your daily routine, you're rushing from one thing to another, and so on and so forth. Take a break for five minutes, say I'm going to break my daily routine, my daily schedule, I'm going to take this time and give it to Allah subhanaw taala. And I will only think about Allah and my relationship with Allah, nothing else. I'm going to think about my Acura, that's it, nothing else. So suspend your thoughts about your wages, suspend your thoughts about your wife, about your kids about your builds about your
obligations, about your schedule, about catching up with tasks and duties and so on and so forth. Put all of this inside and say I'm going to shift to my heart from Head to Heart. I'm going to put my consciousness in my heart now. And I will connect to Allah only.
That's gonna change the way you approach everything in life.
And if you're not doing this on a daily basis a few times I'm telling you, you are living half life, actually a fraction of a life because the real life is the life of the heart. Remember I am says in the little Columbia highlighted camera a little bit any higher. He says the heart has a life just like the body has a life. Most of us are connected to our heads to the life of the body, but not the life of the heart. He says
Hayato we're here to be available. We're Akbar women hated button.
And the life of the heart is far greater and bigger and more profound than the life of the body. So we need to wake up to this fact. We are half asleep, we spend our lives mainly half asleep. We need to wake up and that's what Allah subhanaw taala calls reflect. Buckelew Humphrey hafla roughly means heedlessness. You're just unaware your mind is not attending to these things.
That's it. You know, I know there is accurate I know there's Jana. I know there's not I know Allah is there. I know Allah is watching me. Okay, but that's on the side that's on the back end of my mind. That's roughly if that's gonna fly. This is not in front of your eyes. Wherever you go. You are having heedless. You're absent minded. You're living a life absent mindedly. Most people are hypnotized. Most people are hypnotized, the walking around hypnotized. We think what we see and what we hear. That's what reality is. That's a fraction of reality. Reality is far bigger than what our senses can catch. And if you are not connected to your heart, you are living, I'm telling you, you
are living in a hypnotized state, you're not seeing reality.
And I will conclude with this story, which is
and so that's a show
to show you how Musa alayhis salam was living a full range of life so he was aware of the whole whole spectrum of reality
for them, you know, when Pharaoh chased Musa al Islam and his people and they reached the sea fella matter, Belgium and Carlos Hubbell Musa in la moda raccoon, so when they reach the sea, that's a dead end, we can't escape anymore. They said they will catch us, the companions of Musa said, That's it, we got caught. We have no escape. Musa Ali Salam was speaking from a different world. He saw beyond that he said, color in America A, B, C, or D. And he said, No, Allah is with me, he's gonna show us a way out, even though I don't see it, but I know it is there. And I know it more than I know that the C is ahead of us.
When you attend to that reality to that, well, that life of the heart, you know, things more surely than you know, with your own senses.
You know, he said, No, no, when we're not we haven't reached the end.
Allah in no matter your bill, my Lord is with me, he's gonna show us away, there is a way out. I don't see it, but it is there I am, a more sure of it, than I am sure that the see is in front of us.
That's the difference.
That's the difference, that he was not captive to the physical reality around them. All of us can tap into something like this, all of us. It's available to you and me and to everyone. But the question is, are we willing to give more attention to our hearts? More attention to our hearts? Are we in the Salah? Are we in our hearts, our center is our hearts or is it our minds. It's mainly our our heads, we're thinking about things. A lot of people are thinking about the socks of the person next to them. We're thinking about the trousers or the you know, below the ankle or above the ankle. You have nothing to do with that you are in the presence of Allah, forget about all of this. That's
none of your business.
Focus on your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala.
You're gonna say during the debate of the great Tabby, the student of Abdullah bass, he said I prayed for two years in Medina, I don't know, none of those days are recognized who's on my right and who's on my left.
I never recognized the manner because I never paid attention. And by the way, when you talk about Medina, everyone knew him and Medina, he knew everyone in Medina.
So he knew who was on both sides. But he did not recognize he did not pay attention. She was completely clueless
because he was in his heart. So if you pray in your mind, and you're worried about what I'm going to do next, or what happened in the morning,
or about the traffic, or about this person and that thing.
You're not praying, you are just not praying.
Literally, you are not praying, you should pray in your heart because that moment of the Salah is supposed to be with Allah subhanaw taala completely from your heart, your heart should be your center. So I hope this has been a glimpse into that a lot has to do a lot more with Teskey. So I focused more on Teskey towards the end. So you see Islam is quite simple and straightforward and very beautiful. And it is human. It's about human it's about developing you as a human. It's about
at the scale, learn little and grow little
learn and grow, learn and grow, learn and grow, learn and grow and you will find yourself reaching heights most people can't even dream of. It's very simple and straightforward. And do that for the sake of Allah and you will see act from your heart, you will see a different reality, you will see a different reality.
So that's how simple straightforward yet very powerful Islam is. So we ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us understanding of the deen and the ability to implement it and live by Akula Kalia the was the for Allah, if you have questions if Allah will take them before we leave
No, basically, he just sent him He sent him to be the governor of Yemen. But he gave him a piece of advice. And that's a profound piece of advice. The scholars have written books about it. Even some Some scholars say some of the students who claim they say he wrote his book it alarm will alarm will marker in his book was all fake. He wrote it as an explanation of the message of Amaru kebab to her de familia man. Very profound message. Very strong message. Yeah. So that was the story. He just sent him back. So to Yemen to be the governor there. Yes.
That means everyone understands everything.
Okay, the man who said to him,
and then it can be here, Kalani altered the LA catafalque I will bring you the throne of bilities.
Before you even blink,
most likely, according to the strongest opinion among the scholars is that he was a human being who knew is Mala and Adam. Allah's Greatest Name, that if you call upon him,
Allah would respond by the way what's the smaller album?
Was the Greatest Name of Allah that if you call upon it will be responded will be responded to you?
are you? Are you
okay? The hater you have any other opinions? Which is the Greatest Name of Allah that if you call upon Allah would respond
there are now I have a question for you.
So the Prophet SAW Salem, indicated in Psalm, a hadith, that Esmolol album is in these sorrows which is Baja and in Al Baqarah AYATUL kursi. So is the word is at higher volume. So some scholars said the SMA line element, hey, we'll pay you some scholars say no, it's Allah.
The Prophet Salam so had someone saying, Oh Allah and slo kabhi Anika and I headed for the summit. Alladhina Milledgeville amulet. Well, Amir Kula, who for one had asked you You are the one who never forgets never forgotten, the meaning of salt and a class. So the professor Selim said, like I said, Allah was me Hill alum, he asked Allah with his greatest name.
So there are a few narrations that indicate that the greatest thing of Allah is different. So what is it?
What is the Greatest Name of Allah?
You know, what the Greatest Name of Allah is?
Is when you call upon Allah when with one of his names.
But your heart knows Allah profoundly.
It's a state of heart. So when the Prophet Salah Salem saw that person making dua, he said, he called upon Allah with his greatest name, why? Because he called upon Allah and the Prophet saw the state of his heart that was completely connected to Allah, it had no doubt in Allah subhanaw taala. So if you are in that state, it will be answered. So any of the names of Allah will become the greatest name of Allah, if you are in a state of profound belief and trust in Allah.
And that solves that hadith, otherwise the Hadith will have conflict among themselves.
Okay, more questions?
What's the what's a good start to get your heart connected? Like, you know, like, I feel like I'm probably one of those prisoners doesn't Victor, but my heart
is distracting slides a
few times to the left, but it goes away for
to get my heart connected. What's the best way to get your heart connected to Allah? That's a very good question. And the answer to this is actually given by immune Tamia.
we actually talked about this touched on this last week, in the last part of the
The Book of shaker Sadi,
he said, everyone needs to read himself. Allah gave you self as a book by the way you need to read it.
You need to see what opens up your heart. For some people, it's difficult for some people to just reciting Quran. For some people it is Salah, for some people it is charity. For some people it is kindness. For some people it is service, helping others. For some people, it is just contemplation difficult.
For some people, it is fasting just opens up their heart. For some people, it is being dutiful to the parents. For some people, it's just studying knowledge, solid knowledge, it opens up their heart for you. It's solid and hard and rough. for them. It's so sweet. And it's so spiritual.
So there is no answer. There's no size fits all. No size fits all you need to sense out yourself you need to feel read yourself, what does it what does the inclined to where does it find peace and tranquility and spirituality and connection in and that's what you need to that's, that's the key to your heart. So you need to start with it. Once you utilize your key, you start opening up other ways for you. That's the only way because what works for me might not work for you. So you need to read yourself. So the in general terms the answer is to know yourself, read yourself, even though I am says in alpha it he says I can't imagine. I can't imagine someone worshipping Allah truly without
knowing himself. You cannot he says you cannot worship Allah if you do not understand yourself, you cannot worship Allah. He is saying this
you need to speak up
again, speak up
will be missed misunderstand
how Allah has created actions that people do. So they attribute the evil actions to
clarify that. Yes.
Clarifying this requires a lecture but I'll try to do it as briefly as possible. That's a very good question. Some people attribute their actions to Allah attribute their actions to Allah in the sense I do what I do because Allah wrote it upon me all because Allah destined that, or Allah created me and caused me cause things to happen. So people also attribute their evil actions to Allah. You know, whatever you do is actually from Allah.
Whatever you do, is actually everything is the creation of Allah. Allah Subhana. Allah says Allah Who halacha come one at a time Maroun Allah created you and everything you do. The Prophet SAW, Selim says in the authentic hadith, in Allah Ha, the Quran, the sun was an attic, what was in it he?
Allah is the one who creates every maker and whatever they make.
when you sin, isn't that the creation of Allah? Yes, it's the creation of Allah is the creation of Allah. But you need to see that in the bigger context. What's the bigger context is that Allah subhanaw taala creates good things.
Then Allah gave choice to you. So the fact the fact that you can do something is a gift from Allah. Now what you do with it, Allah left that for you completely. So what is evil, evil, just just a normal action
is a normal action, but you're doing it in the wrong context. You're doing like, for example, Xena. The act of sexual intimacy is good. Is a good is a good thing is a very good thing for humans is a valuable resource. It's an important thing. It's a noble thing as well. So Xena is using that noble thing in the wrong context. That's it.
the choice to use a good thing in the wrong context is yours. But Allah created everything. So the evil is in your choice. And the fact that Allah allowed you to do evil, that's actually a great thing.
Because Allah does not control Allah subhanaw taala decided to give you the choice. He does, and that's the meaning of an Amana. Everything else in the universe runs by the command of Allah, it has no choice. But Allah subhanaw taala said, I'm not gonna choose for you, you choose for yourself. You choose for yourself. So when someone chooses to do something wrong, they have used something good in an inappropriate context, and that's what evil is. So this is why some scholars and some philosophers argue there's no evil per se. Evil is a relative matter.
Doing something that's wrong place. But is there anything specifically evil in and of itself? They say no.
The evil is in the choice of how you put things together.
Okay, so, if we keep it simple, as simple as that, I hope that answers the question. Otherwise it could get very philosophical. Yeah.
Yes, but a lecture like this need to be very well prepared because people can always misconstrue what you say there, because people usually hear half of what you say. Usually people hear half of what you say. So you need to be careful. And that's why sometimes because repeat and repeat and repeat.
Unfortunately, that's a risk that comes with just like, you know, when you are a driver, there's a risk that comes with it, there might be an accident.
With speaking and being a public speaker or being a teacher, there is a risk inevitable risk that people will take half of what you say, not everyone, but there will be people who just somehow they become deaf to half of what you say. They don't catch it.
Okay, more questions will take more question if there is one more question if there is colorless time to go to bed. Zachman lokalen Shala next week we'll start with the news with a story. So they will be after Aisha Sasha will be again at 730 Zakouma Hirano Salam Salam and Amina Mohammed while he was abused
