On the shelf in Metallian ZDNet Muhammad Ali he was hoping he edge man will go do a long Magna Magan fauna when fan of Mr. Olympia Now was it not element in accounted anymore I came
along I do not have to have a knowledge of nativa who Arenal welted about Whelan was organized tonight but
we started last Friday with Surah Al marriage selasa along behind Robin Walker. And we reached the part where Allah subhanaw taala gives descriptions of the believers and mousseline and since we have good time today
what time is Aisha today's 888 30? Oh my phone.
This is already a lot of time, fairly Shall
we just want to emphasize this because it's very practical and relevant our times. The way Allah is Fanta describes the believers where Allah says in that in Santa Julio Kahala, either massage shortages, who are what either massage or euro man or an Indian masala and that man is created weak.
And thus if man is left to himself, this weakness will play out in the form of being fretful agitated, shakable, you know, humans can easily be shaken can easily be frightened, can easily be, you know, put in trouble can easily be troubled.
And the circumstances of this life have the capacity to impact humans, their experience, their inner experience, which we tend to call feelings, right? We tend to call them feelings. But
interestingly, we actually call them emotions, and our times, but previously, the concept of emotions is pretty new with the concept, not the word.
The concept itself is pretty new.
Humans did not relate to their inner experience, they did not name it emotions, or look at it, as we look at it, as we perceive emotions today. It was the inner experience.
It was the inner experience. And actually, if you research it, if you Google it, where the word emotions came from, it's actually about 200 years old only.
And there are researchers who want you to write about the history of emotions who say, actually very interesting, I came across this very interesting
statement by a historian who studies psychology and the history of psychology, sociology, social sciences in general. And he spoke about the history or she spoke actually about the history of emotions. And she says a very interesting thing, she says, Before 1830, no one felt the emotions.
They felt something else. They used to refer to them as states of the soul. states of the Spirit in the Arabic language, what did we call them in the past? The problem is, is that the Arabs now the Muslims in general, right, and thus, the Arabic language reflects this, we just copy whatever comes from modernity, right? thinking, Oh, it's superior, it's good.
So we developed words, to match the English word, emotion
to match it, but we didn't have something similar to that we did. It's a new concept. It's a new way of looking at or perceiving the inner experience of humans. And it comes with, you know, obviously, it has utility and this is why it became very, like popular, it was popularized, easily popularized, but interestingly, it actually comes at a price.
It makes us relate to our inner experience in ways that are impractical.
Okay, that's a big topic, but in general, there are so in the past, people did not call them emotions, they didn't perceive them as emotions, there were signs there were signs of something which you felt inside your inner experience was a sign of something going on and thus, you took that sign you read it and then you use it to diagnose what's going on then address the root cause. But now emotions became an entity.
They became an entity so once you they say identify the emotion and that's it end of story, you're good.
And that's why people are troubled. People are troubled in the in the Arabic language in the past, they used to call this what hustle button,
the inner sense, what you experienced inside.
Other nations used to call it what again, state of the soul, state of the spirit, things like that, not emotions, and the state of
The soul or the state of the spirit, or the inner state was actually whatever that was anger jacquela anger, happiness, sadness, worry, anxiety, all of that was an indication of a problem or an optimal state. So it was a communication from your inner dimension so that you understand what's going on. And if there is something that needs to be addressed, you will address it. By now we blocked that path and we call them emotions. And we happy just giving them names.
So even the herbs today, anyone who speaks Arabic here, so let me make sure that I'm seeing something relevant. Just put your hand up Arabic. Okay, good sisters. Okay, okay, fair enough. Fair enough. What is the word for emotions in the Arabic language?
Masha, Allah shul, I challenge you go to any old Arabic dictionary, and you will find that it's actually in the Quran. When I showed one, right, does it mean they don't feel it? Go to the Tafseer go to any Arabic dictionary before more than times after we got affected after we got influenced. But any Arabic dictionary before
the 1900s Before that, anything old go to Santa Allah go to alkimos go to Mecca use a lulu go to anything right. And you will find that should all means Alan, I assure will share all his knowledge.
And we made it plural. We call it Michel.
We start calling them emotions. But in the Arabic language should all means knowledge.
So what happened?
Yeah, we just made up a word that we took because we saw that what came from the west? Or what modern sciences, they started saying emotions, emotions, we didn't have anything similar. That's a new concept. Okay, so we have to come up with words. So we took a word in Arabic, and we stripped it of its meaning. And you actually use it now to mean something else to the point that today if you say to an Arab, anyone who speaks Arabic, you tell them should or means knowledge. They say no. It means emotions. Yeah.
So that's the problem. Okay. So while we're talking about this, we're talking about this because Allah subhanaw taala talks about what we call feelings.
Allah is talking about the inner state. Allah says, Man is created weak, and thus man is fretful meaning is, is overly affected by circumstances. When things are pleasant and things aren't good. They feel elated, overjoyed, sometimes they transgress in terms of how they feel, right. But if they face hardship, they lose spirit altogether.
Now they're desperate. They're anxious, they're going through depression. So a Volatile Life up and down, depending on external circumstances.
So Allah says, this is part of the weakness of man, inland muscle lean, except for the believers, the ones who truly pray, and we say mousseline is doesn't mean someone. Yeah, that you see that only prays outside because most of the prayer doesn't happen outside.
And that's a big mistake. The majority of your prayer is actually from our manual co loop. The biggest part of your Salah is actually from the acts of the heart. These are experiences these are states of heart that you're supposed to be, you're supposed to engage in. These are the greatest acts of worship, love of Allah, fear of Allah.
Sense of all hope in Allah, a longing to Allah, humility before Allah. This is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam says in novel Giuliani they have sold the antivirus software, my Venus Allah to him, I came up in a summer he will the two people praying in the same row.
And the difference between their prayers It's like the difference between the heavens and the earth.
Prayer is the same. They're doing the same moves the same, probably most likely the same things. What makes the difference? What's what goes on inside? So when we define the prayer and many people say oh, there are physical acts of prayer, physical acts of worship, like the prayer
No, that's that's a that's inaccurate. That is inaccurate. When Allah describes the believers what does he say? But after Muhammad Menon, Allah the unknown few Salah to him harsh your own, who sure is that collective states state that has all of these beautiful acts of worship together.
Called Avila hell moment Menon and Lydian Have you Salatin question on success for all of the believers. They are the ones who have who show up in their salon, and people think oh sure. Is something nice to have. No for sure describes
You know, are you performing Salah in your heart or are you just performing some physical action? That's the difference. So those are the muscle Linde ALLAH is talking about. When you engage in the prayer truly from your heart, and you give it its right. And the action that is happening within you is more than the action that is showing outside physically and verbally as you're seeing words and you are seeing prayers.
If the action inside is more than you are most likely among those elements will lean and then you will get the benefits because not everyone who prays praise Allah says in the Salah, Tottenham Russia you wouldn't want to go up indeed the salah also the prayer it holds you back it prevents you it stops you deters you from the details humans from what
especially a woman called evil and glued actions despicable actions everything evil everything you know immoral
so why do you find people who pray but they commit these sins
because they're not praying properly inside they're not fulfilling what it means to be masala to be Masoli is really to have the Salah, the full spectrum of Salah not only the physical crust, but the most important thing. All of that is important. But really the most essential part of your Salah is where your heart is, Allah says will attain a Salah attorney decree and establish the prayer for what for my mentioned for my remembrance, so that you engage with me.
Engage with Allah and a conversation you will remember Allah
you get into that state of true connection with Allah subhanaw taala that happens inside. So those are the Lasallian those are the ones who reap the fruits ill mousseline
Allah you know whom Allah Salah to him that Amen. Because obviously when someone engages in the prayer and they taste it sweetness, and the prayer has sweetness. And if you're not experiencing the sweetness, this is not like it's not a nice it's only a nice thing to have no itch that tells you there is something seriously off with how you perform the prayer. There is something that you need to work on. There is something that you need to learn something that you need to engage in. This is a this is a this is an alarm. When you are not experiencing anything in the prayer the Prophet salallahu Salam, we know he said in the authentic hadith during World War Two, if a Salah that Allah
made my happiness got to attain it means happiness, my tranquility, my peace, the sweetness, my joy is in Salah.
And before the Salah, the prophet could not wait to start the prayer and he would say to bill earlier Bilal additional behavior Billa
meaning he wants to be able to do the IBAMA go ahead and just do the Obama like bring our hearts peace, tranquility and joy.
So call the Akarma
This is how our experience should be with Salah when you when we engage in Salah like this. We're going to reap the fruits.
It's going to be Amen and is going to reflect life is not going to hit your heart regardless of your circumstances. It's not gonna knock you out.
Yes, you will experience some sadness, but it will be moderate. You will experience joy but you will not go crazy
and you're balanced.
And the Prophet SAW Selim showed the inherent weakness in the heart of the person whose mood whose feelings is so dependent on external circumstances the prophets of salaam says that is Durham, Teresa. Dana.
In oddly LD were in Manasa.
The slave the worshipper of the dinar, and the Dirham and the dollar, they are disgraced. They are in pain, they are in agony.
If he is given, if he is given his happy, if he is not given,
then he's upset.
So the President showed the inherent weakness whereas the believer Subhanallah the believer is happy with the last panel. The fact that you found a lot in your life, the fact that you know Allah, the fact that you seek ALLAH subhanaw taala the fact that you are able to really arrange your life around the path that leads us to Allah subhanaw taala that's what you should be happy about. That is what a person should that's the only thing that deserves to be happy about. Really, that's the only thing because everything else is ephemeral. Everything is going to come to an end. This is the only thing that will last
and the more it lasts, the greater it gets the gets the sweeter it gets.
So that's where Salah is
ill mursaleen Alladhina home Allah Salah to him that you know they always they're consistent when you when this is your experience with the salah. You know you are you're timely with it. You are consistent with it. It's not like you're dragging your feet to do this all
because you have to know
you if your feet are pulling you to the Salah, unconsciously you find yourself just gravitating to Salah you get some time here and there you would offer Salah because of the joy you can't get enough of the joy
and the prayer we know the prophets or the prophets of salaam used to you know pray at night and used to offer ALLAH SubhanA used to offer Sunnah prayers.
Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah Allah to Allah his son, I think his son slyly he mentioned that his father would pray during the day during the day and some some of you might be puzzled.
Just volunteer, a man or he's talking about a band, one of the busiest people in probably in human history. The amount of knowledge he left shows the dedication. The how studious he was that he invested his time. Imam Ahmed would pray 200 drachmas every day 200 raka sunnah.
You might say what did he get the time from? The imam or how did you see the mustard of Imam Muhammad.
The biggest collection that survived of Hadith that we know of
some estimations go around you know what our generations in it. The narrations in it are around. And these are the best Imam Muhammad like he's he he chose these he shortlisted, these Hadith from what he knows from what he knows and is around 20 28,000 plus a hadith.
And it's not like he would put a hadith that he studied each one of them with the chain of narration thoroughly with the fake COVID And Imam Muhammad has felt right. He has a school a school of luck
that's the person whose heart was attached to Allah subhanaw taala Salah and that's almost saline.
the one of the chefs of Imam Muhammad may Montevideo Mahara, but am allowed to Hannah. He said Allahumma he loved the prayer so much. He prayed so much. He could not like get off of the prayer, even for a short time. So he would say aloha main contact later had an Salah to felucca brief out in here.
He says oh Allah if you have ever given anyone the ability to pray in their grave, give it to me. Like that's what he's concerned about. He says like after my death, I don't want to lose my salah. I want to I want to still do salah. I want to still engage in it.
Okay, so those are almost saline. Those are the ones who reap the fruits of Salah that Salah will increase their Eman and it increases their Eman obviously whatever is evil, they will find it despicable their tastes will be rectified their fatwa will be corrected. So the evil is repulsive to them anything evil, they hate it naturally. They develop a pure taste a good taste, because everything evil by the way, Allah put in humans have the capacity to have good taste, but that taste gets corrupted for many reasons. But in your engagement with the Quran, your engagement towards Salah restores that taste slowly. This is why in Islam, you don't depend on your taste.
But in very advanced levels of scholars who are very, very advanced and worthy. The evidence, again, in very advanced matters, is indecisive. And there is a like there is disagreement and there's a lot of conflicting opinions and the evidence seems to support all opinions. Here only here a very trained and very righteous scholar is allowed to, you know, go for one as opposed to the other based on their personal taste. But that's like a very rare occurrence.
And this is how we understand the Hadith of the Prophet Solomon he said to the companion, who asked him about something that people give him different answers the prophets of salaam told him it's definitely a callback, ask your heart. That's someone who's been trained and conditioned and developed and and educated by the Prophet sallallahu sallam. It's not like someone says, Yeah, I'll ask my heart. No, if you have a corrupt heart is going to lead you to the hellfire. It will take you to the to the most evil things. Okay, so this answer doesn't apply to everyone and Lydian Houma, la sala to him the human we're living in FEMA him happen myeloma and you will find that there is a
right for the poor in their wealth does occur here. And we mentioned the rest of things.
So all of these are parts of the character of a Muslim. They believe with certainty on in the day of judgment, the Day of Resurrection, they see it that's their future, when they work for the future. That's their future.
That's the future is their future is not your career.
It's part of the your future but your greatest future is actually on the Day of Judgment when Allah subhanaw taala says yeah, you ladina Allah Tala will tumble off so Maka Demetria that every soul that every self see
What it has put forth for tomorrow?
What did you put forward for tomorrow? That's your real future. That's what you should be working for. That's the future that you should be preparing for.
Well, let the you know how many AdobeRGB maastrichtian Obviously we said they are afraid they are scared. They fear the punishment of Allah subhanaw taala Why is that a doubt in Allah's mercy? No. But it is what it's a doubt that they are good enough. And it's a doubt that they would stay good enough till the day till the day they die. They don't know. They don't know.
They don't know. So they always putting their trust in Allah subhanaw taala and they're hoping Allah that Allah keeps them on the truth and that Allah protects them from falling off the path
Okay, so again what do they normally hold him half Ilona Allah Allah has watched him Oh mama look at the amount of a normal human human again, they preserve their chastity and their behavior is moral in that sense. We're living in humbly Amana, to him or to him, Ron and they obviously that's that's what these are the some of the fruits of iman. They are loyal, they are truthful. They keep their word they keep their promise, they are trustworthy, you can trust them. You can trust them.
Because Emanuel Amana, they come from the same route, and they have the same origin and the heart trust, trustworthiness being honest. So this is why like a believer finds it hard to lie.
They find it very, very hard to lie. Not because they are concerned if people find out, no, they are, it causes them pain to lie.
It goes against him and it goes against being this how he man builds you from inside, it builds you in in a way it shapes you in a way that lying doesn't go with you. It doesn't go it injures your your heart.
It goes against the dynamics of how your heart is functioning. So it becomes extremely difficult to lie, very difficult to lie.
Well let the unknown be Shahadat to him called a moon and again, they are they, they their testimony, they they observe the testimony, when the truth needs to be said they say it.
And the truth needs to be said they say it now like the truth of today.
The truth of today, the truth that the person speaks, they should have enough moral credit in their system to stand by it. But there are many people again, who don't work on themselves morally, or have no level any level of maturity today, and they are taught told to be social activist. Go and scream some slogans and hold some, you know,
some banners and yeah, I'm against oppression, I'm against poverty. But you know what, look at your own life. Most likely you don't you can't live up to the to the to the to the slogan that you are shouting or carrying. That's not a good place in Islam. If you don't have
you know what it takes to stand behind what you say you shouldn't say it, you're not ready for it.
You're not ready for it. And this is why Muslims need to be to be very need to be very careful, you will find a lot of corruption. In a lot of those movements, social justice movements, there's a lot of corruption, a lot unbelievable moral financial, unbelievable stuff. Why? Because these people, you know, they jump to the front, they jump to a high level of an act of great morality without having built built any morality within themselves.
And thus, the temptation will take the better of them, they will fall for it.
And this is part of why the Muslims remained quiet for some time at the beginning. Because you needed to build some solid foundation. You needed to build substance so that when you say a word you truly mean it. It's not like you just find some space and you find some support. And you just get carried away and excited. And it's easy. It's a very easy moral stance to sort of shout something. Yeah, I'm, I'm against poverty. I'm against oppression. It's easy to say it but do you know what oppression really means?
Have you really inspected your own life and seen your own acts of oppression?
Have you worked against them? Do you know where what oppression really means? And how does it manifest and where does it exist? What it takes to remove it? Many people are just acting they're just children they haven't grown up yet. And they think is just a video game. Yeah, you can just go right into the middle of the battle and start shooting right? Because it's a virtual reality people a lot of people think that really being moral is just the same thing to say something moral. No.
No, everything in you has to
has to support that
has to be saying the same thing. We have to be consistent inside out. Otherwise you're not doing the right testimony.
You're just doing it most likely you're doing it for some kind of benefit, some kind of personal glory, some kind of interest, some kind of bias, anything.
So Islam doesn't encourage that. And disarm doesn't celebrate that, because that's show. That's not reality.
And that's a type of hypocrisy.
And it doesn't change. It doesn't change things. People who get into this are easily manipulated. And they themselves in their call for justice, they commit a lot of oppression.
In their call for justice, they don't mind committing a lot of oppression.
So that shows you don't know what you're talking about. You don't understand that you don't have standards. You don't have moral principles. You don't have them.
You are you are foreign to them. You're just playing the pot.
So this is not a Alladhina hombre shahada to him called the believers speaks when they know what they believe in what they are willing to stand up for.
That's what they believe it does. You're consistent you have this strategic depth, depth within you this moral depth within you otherwise,
you know that you can't take what comes after that.
Because standing for the truth is going to be difficult. You will be tried you will be tested sometimes with temptation, sometimes with persecution and pain and, and resistance. And if you are not full of what you're calling for you and you're not going to stand up for it, you're going to run away or you will change you will switch sides easily.
So you will harm the cause that you're calling for more than any kind of help that you can offer.
That's part of Alladhina ambi shahada to him come in on the believers are people who stand up for what they believe in
what they truly believe in and what they have committed to fulfill within themselves before they go out trying to get others and change others to believe in it.
That's what are the numbers Shahadat him called Iman
well Athena home Allah Salah team, you have your bone again, again Salah Allah starts Allah closes that again with Salah well let me know my last Allah team you have one more half hour preserving means preserving you preserve that means you nurture something, you preserve it, you take care of it. And that means Salah for them is something very important. The Prophet SAW Salam said a Salah to hire Ronaldo, the best thing salah is the best thing. The best subject, the best engagement, the best action Salah we're not talking about only the physical we're talking about about salah the whole whole experience of Salah

Did we read this last week?
We read it right? Or did we complete the surah?
No, no, we didn't complete the show. No, I'm sure we didn't. But Hello, read the translation Shala we will present
this, this is an oath in which Allah subhanaw taala swears by every point of sunrise and sunset, every point at which the sun moon and stars rise and say because of what there is in that have clear signs of the resurrection and that Allah is Able to replace them with others like them, as he says elsewhere, for we replace you with others like you then after death on the Day of Resurrection, we will recreate you in a manner unknown to you. And our decree cannot be escaped that is no one can escape us or outwit us when we want to recreate him once the fact of the resurrection and the acquittal is established if they persist in their denial.
and do not submit to the science of Allah, then in that case, leave them to indulge in their falsehood and idle worldly pursuits. That is leave them to indulge in falsehoods and corrupt beliefs toying with their religion, eating, drinking and enjoying themselves. Okay, just one second. So I didn't read this. So you're reading it before I read this. Okay, so let me read it, Henschel, but just a summary of what the one that I read before. It's the state of the disbelievers again they are the Allah describes them in a way that when the Prophet Solomon speaks to them, they run away from him. They disperse, and they start talking on the site. They don't want to listen to him. And again,
that's the same response that all the prophets received from their people. Allah says do do they think because that's one thing? Do they think Do they believe that they will be entered into Jannah? Because they said, if there is Jana, we are the ones who are most deserving of it. These people have their standards wrong. They think because they are the elite. They are the nobles of their society. They are the notables of their society. They think we are the ones who deserve
who deserve the reward of Allah Subhan Allah to Allah Allah says, No, that's not the criteria, as the Prophet saw was, as Allah says, in economical Mendeley at Koco that the most noble with Allah, the ones who are, again, will be honored by Allah are the ones that are the highest in Taqwa. That's the criteria and with Allah. It's not ethnicities, not races, not blood is not language. It's not culture. It's nothing. It's what piety, piety, taqwa, that's what gets people with Allah subhanaw taala there's nothing else. Your your, your your lineage, your relationships, your ethnicity, none of that. None of that would help you on the Day of Judgment. It's only the your obedience of Allah
subhanaw taala then Allah says, No, we have created them from what you know. And you know, Allah is doesn't even mention it. That where humans come from is something that again, when you when you mentioned it, you
you're in a formal like in a formal, respectful situation, you don't even mention its name. You don't even mention its name. He says, This is where you came from. So what it's not befitting for you to be arrogant. You should humble yourself.
You should humble if you're going to draw honor from your origins. That's your origin. Nothing to draw or honor from the true thing with Allah subhanaw taala is your taqwa Okay, call me ma'am sir. Hello to Halaqaat Allah azza wa jal fellow Cosimo VLBW the majority will never be in LA code urine Allah and nobody the helmingham woman who will be merciful clean without whom you hold away I will tell you la cuyo Muhammad lady you don't you oh my god you and I mean Allah Judith is Hello uncut and Amina and also be in your field on how she had an upside on top on Villa that he can Yamo lady can you imagine how the exam will mean how to add it to my sciatica will my body be the Shamcey will

Hatha Yoga, yo Muhammad, Allah you I don't, in Allah adelante him in and nearly Well, well, we're barely men who are okay but to hold
him, whether it be him.
You read that already. hulless. We don't want to, we'll consider this. So just commentary on this. Allah subhanaw taala says, Last swears again an oath by himself. He is the Lord of the East and the West. And that's more of to draw our attention to the great magnificent creation of Allah subhanaw taala. And thus, his ability and his power and might the Allah says we can create another creation other than them, we can replace them, or we can create you yourself. Allah says Bella Katarina, Allah, so we have an Anna, we are able to create even their fingertips, Allah is Able to bring them back themselves, the same cells, the same cells, obviously. So Allah says, This is the power of
Allah subhanaw taala and they are not taking heed. So Allah says to the Prophet SAW Salem, let them play. These guys are playing the messing around. That's what they are really doing. They are playing around the messing around. And it's not like they're playing like children. They play like games, that intellectual games. So they build philosophies, they build sciences around all of that they've been build logic. They build thinking, they call themselves thinkers, right. And they produce content and it seems to be like intellectually compelling, right? Allah says, for them to hold me Hold on while I bow, let them play. Let them mess around. Let them mess around. Hatha Yoga
Omaha moolah Do you adorn until they meet the day that they are promised? This equals the verse who Allah Subhana Allah says in AlLadhina kefalos our own Allah Hema undertone, I'm limited in the room, the disbelievers whether you want them or you don't want them, they're not going to be guided.
Because when someone doesn't want to be guided that said, If Allah doesn't guide their hearts, they won't be guided. So it's not a matter of you convincing them. This is why something very important for Muslims. Oftentimes people will say, How do I convince my colleague, my friend, it's not your obligation to convince anyone, and you shouldn't be desperate to convince anyone you shouldn't be, you should be concerned with conveying the truth, conveying the truth. And in order for you to convey the truth, it's not enough for you to read it.
You have to embody it. When you embody the truth, you can make the hearts listen, and here.
But when you are just
a spokesperson for something that you have not internalized something you have not actualized within yourself.
Somehow there is a discrepancy between what you say and what you communicate. And people sense that lack of authenticity
is similar to what we just said about moral depth that you have to really stand for what you're calling for.
So you don't have to convince you just communicate the truth. And you communicate the truth. Many people jump into this too early in their life, they just think oh, it's just memorize some stuff, and go on public and say it and they happen to be people who enjoy public attention, who enjoy public speaking. But that's not enough.
When the person truly lives their Iman, and they achieve it within themselves, they realize it in their private life. And they work on themselves and they purify themselves, and they build their email. When they speak. They send a completely different message than someone who's just you know, reading
or just, you know, parroting something.
So, yeah, I believe that it's not your responsibility to guide people along guides, people, your responsibility, or your concern shouldn't be to communicate the truth to people out of concern for them, out of consent for them. And you know, sometimes we Muslims, we forget that Allah says, describes the prophets or something. He says, Well, Maurice, and I get a lot of metal, I mean, we sent you but as a mercy to the world, Muslims are supposed to be the ones who carry the message of the Prophet Muhammad Salah he will send them sometimes, again, in times of political tension. And you know, things when they happen, we forget that
we tend to forget that.
It's important to like, for us to be an example, a real example, a living example of what Islam truly is. And when there is an opportunity, and a good opportunity. It's not like you stop people in the street and start talking to them. In certain places, this might be acceptable, like, in certain areas where you put it that Word table and you stop people, that might be acceptable. But in general, you don't stop people in the street and say, I want to tell you something about Islam. You also don't want to look awkward. It's not it's not right. There are social etiquettes that you need to observe because that helps people take you seriously and listen to what you have to say. So
so whenever there's an opportunity, share Islam with other people for their own good for their own good. It's the right upon us. It's the right that we communicate to them truly what Islam is, and again, it doesn't have to you don't have to preach. You just have truly to love Islam.
Because sometimes we Muslims love the show game. Like say, oh, we need to shine shone on Muslims that we are this, you don't need to show no one nothing. You need to be a Muslim and it will show but if your focus is on the show, that pulls you more towards hypocrisy, you don't want that. Your focus is to love Islam, for your own sake, for the truth itself, for your love of Allah because it's the right of Allah upon you. And that's why you are created. So that's why we are supposed to embody Islam and then it will speak for itself, it will start to speak for itself.
So, so it's we should have mercy for people. There are a lot of people who are lost a lot of people misguided a lot of people misinformed. A lot of people are confused. A lot of people don't know the truth.
And they have rights upon us. They have rights upon us. There are human beings. And there are people who search for the truth. Yes, there are people who who are not searching for the truth. There are people who would refuse the truth Yes, but there are people who are actually looking for the truth. And yes, there are barriers sometimes oftentimes there are barriers.
But when we are true to Allah subhanaw taala and sha Allah Allah will, you know will remove those barriers.
Okay, so Allah says let them play, let them mess around until they meet the day.
because that's the only thing you can do with these people. They don't want to believe that's it, what can you do to them? What can you do for them? Leave them leave them until the day me the day that they are denying and then they will see for themselves. Yo man Hold on a minute Dottie Sarah and Kana Hamid and also be new for you know, when they rush out of their graves. You know, it's just like in a stampede where people are rushing and trying to avoid something. Let's say in the subway, you see people just rushing there's fire people rushing to get to an escape, just like that. This is how people are going to come out of the grief. You Oh my god, I mean death ECRI and can home Ilan

We finished the whole thing financial. So their their their their their looks, their eyes, the look on their eyes, shows for sure for sure. This whole show is not the short of Salah for sure of Salah is that out of love and all before Allah subhanaw taala this whole show is the question of what
fear and humiliation
fear and humiliation but it comes from the realization of the truth. It's just like solid last year attacker had you had you throw Russia would you on your money then harsh? Yeah, faces that have shown that for sure of solid discussion of the kuffaar on the Day of Judgment when they say the truth. You know, the disappointment, the pain, the fear, it's that type of culture.
Why? Because for sure, the original meaning of short is when something is still
something sort of stills and comes down.
Same thing because when your heart is connected to Allah your body comes down and again when someone is overwhelmed by fear and there is nothing they're helpless there's nothing they can do they motionless you know, they just sync everything is still so that's why both of them are called for sure that he can normally the canary or I don't let me just read what

Then Allah tells us how people will be one day encounter that day of theirs, which they are promised on that day when they will come rushing forth from their graves in response and submission to the call of the caller as if they are racing towards a goal. That is as if they are rushing towards a marker, they will not be able to resist the color or turn away from his cough. Rather, they will come humiliated and defeated to stand before the Lord of the Worlds their eyes downcast because humiliation and distress will have overtaken them. So their eyes will be downcast their movements will cease and their voices will fall silent. This is how they will be and this is their fate. This
is their date which they were promised and the Promise of Allah will inevitably be fulfilled shackled

Here Allah subhanaw taala swears by all that people can see and all that they cannot see. This includes all of creation, and even includes his own divine essence attesting to the truthfulness of work the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has brought up this noble Quran and that the Noble Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has indeed conveyed it from ALLAH SubhanA wa darland. Allah declared, Allah declares his messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be above what his enemies accused him of when they said that he was a poet or a soothsayer. What made them see that was their lack of faith and their failure to pay heed. If they had believed and paid heed, they would have
known what would benefit them, and what would harm them. If they had looked at the situation of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and reflected upon His attributes and attitude, they would have seen something that was clear as they that would have led them to the conclusion that he was indeed the Messenger of Allah, and that what he brought was revelation from the Lord of the worlds and it was not appropriate to attribute it to him to any human being, for it is words that are indicative of the greatness of the one who uttered them and the majestic nature of his attributes, His perfect care for his slaves and his sublime superiority over his slaves. Moreover, this thinking on their
part was not befitting to Allah and His wisdom. If he Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had falsely attributed to Allah and fabricated some false words, we would surely have seized him by the right hand, then we would have when we would surely have severed his aorta, which is an artery that is connected to the heart. If it is severed, the individual will die. Assuming Allah forbid that the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had fabricated something and falsely attributed it to Allah, Allah would have haste in to punish him and seize him with the vehement grip of one who is almighty omnipotent, for he is most wise and has power over all things. And his wisdom dictates that he
should not delete a mess the punishment of one who tells lies about him and claims that he and his followers are the same, and that those who just disagree with him are doomed.

Almost so up. Well hello I should either be humble about
the fact that Allah supported his messenger so long while he was selling miracles and prove the truthfulness of the message he brought with clear signs, granted him victory over his enemies and caused him to prevail over them is the greatest testimony from him to in support of his message, and not one of you could have protected him that is, if Allah wanted to destroy him, he could not have protected himself and no one else could have prevented protected him from the punishment of Allah. Verily, it that will, is a reminder for the righteous wish shows them that which shows them what is in their best interest in both spiritual and worldly terms, so that they may know it and act upon
it. It reminds them of their religious beliefs, good attitudes, and Shatavari rulings so that they will be people of knowledge, worshipers who know their Lord and leaders who can guide others. Indeed, we know full well that among you are some who rejected this is a warning and a threat to the disbelievers that he will punish them severely for their disbelief. And indeed, it will be a cause of regret for the disbelievers in the hereafter because of their rejection of it. Because they disbelieved in it and they saw what Allah promised of punishment in it, they will regret not having been guided by it and not having submitted to its commands. Thus, they will miss out on the reward
and incur the most severe punishment and they will lose all hope of salvation and become utterly helpless. Okay, so this is a logical argument. This is a logical, rational argument, Allah subhanaw taala was making an argument for the truthfulness of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu it was Allah, Allah says, first
had the prophets of Salaam, been untruthful like making up his message.
Allah would have taken him out.
And that's why because Allah is the Most Merciful. Allah would not leave his
only with false guidance without establishing the truth over it.
This goes against Allah's mercy, against his wisdom and against his robe Obeah His Lordship, being a ROB
being robbed that he takes care of his creation, one of the most important things to take care
of his creation is the guidance.
LM bn Allah Allah Allah Allah LA Metro Kochalka. So then why the Allah subhanaw taala did not leave his servants without guidance, without a purpose. That goes against all the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala it's impossible. It's an impossibility that Allah leaves people to misguidance somebody might say, Okay, we understand this with Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, what about the false prophets in different religions? The people who change their religion, with the truth was there and what did they do with the people of the truth? They burnt them in the ditches, right? And so a lot of dude.
Many incidents like that in history, the child and the magician, the long Hadith, everyone knows it, right? The King and the magician,
the child that the magician wanted to learn magic, and he would send him to this magician to teach him. But then he found a worshiper on the way and he started frequenting the worshiper, he started learning the truth,
and then he was learning. And obviously there was this beast on the way that people didn't know how to deal with it. And they said, Oh, the child, he's learning from the magician so he can take he can take care of this beast. And he said, No, it's in the name of Allah subhanaw taala. So he threw in the name of Allah and he killed the beast, he threw a stone on the, on the beast on whatever that animal was. And he killed the beast. And people started saying, Oh, the magician, he said, No, it's Allah subhanaw taala that killed it and the name of Allah, people believed
people became believers. Then the king took him tried to kill him didn't kill him, you know, the long the long story.
So there were always people of truth. lenta Halawa urban crime in the law Hebei Hoja, the Earth will never will never be empty of someone who establishes the truth.
The truth of Allah subhanaw taala. So they had they had the truth, but they killed these people. They persecuted these people, they destroyed these people. Okay, what about subsequent generations, subsequent generations again, we know that Allah gave people the fistula and the fitrah searches for the truth and it has this very subtle tacit, you know, assessment of of concepts and religions and it would not the federal does not go with the with any falsehood about Allah subhanaw taala.
But a lot of these people who did not receive the message, Allah is not going to wrong them Allah you know those they have a name
This category of people they have a name. In Islam they are called Alpha surah.
The people of the gap, the gap between message messengers, they didn't receive the truth.
They didn't receive the truth.
These people will be tested on the Day of Judgment, they have a special test on the Day of Judgment. Thing is Allah will not leave his creation. Without guidance. Allah will send the golden and when Prophet Muhammad saw them, or the Companions, let's say afterwards started spreading the message. What happened from those nations? The Byzantine Empire, the Persian Empire, they fought against the Muslims.
The Muslims came in, you know, what was the call of the Muslims?
Let us call to Allah.
Don't oppress people.
Don't stand between people and the truth. Allow people to choose the truth and to be governed by the truth. They resisted and they they waged war against the Muslims
Okay, so ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada will not leave his so had the prophets of salaam been a liar as they claimed, Allah says Allah would have taken him out.
That's how Allah deals with with those who lie in his name.
And he says no, and had had he been a liar. None of you could defend him. He couldn't defend himself. You couldn't defend him either. No one could defend him. Then he says the reality of the Quran which is the message of the Prophet sallallahu it was sending them is that it's a typical it's a reminder said Quran we we mentioned that many times that in the Quran you will find the Quran refers to itself as what the Quran tells Killa the color the color, etc. What does that mean? What is the root mean? The root means reminder reminder of what you remind someone of what they already know.
You remind someone of what they already know. And in in the Quran, Allah mentions
are adorable come in many of them in the holy Henrietta homage to him Allah and fusi him ls to become Karlova Shahina and Takuro yo multi Amity in Hakuna and hardab affiliate.
And you Lord took from the back of Adam, all of his progeny, all of his descendants all of humans who are going to come till the day of judgment Allah took them Allah brought them in the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Salam in Allah Mr. Holla Holla at them for how Rajat dirty yet to hook I'm telling you that the
sort of rubbed a wipe the back of Adam and brought all of his progeny
all humans can tell is that like very tiny creatures
what haha that he wanted me to hack. And Allah took the covenant from each one of them the agreement? What is the covenant, the agreement first of all, you will Federa Ellis to be allowed to become a mine not your Lord, meaning deny create you to worship me. And this life is about worshiping Me. And we all said yes. Somebody says I don't remember Yes, it's not in your brain. It's not a conscious memory. It's in your system. It's deeper than that. It's in your system. This is why humans search for the truth. This is why the truth is the ultimate value among humans, all humans they search for the truth.
They search for the meaning of life. They search for Allah.
They have a moral sense because nothing leads to Allah except good things. The path to Allah is made of good things evil, the definition of evil are things that block you from Allah that's the textbook definition of evil in Islam.
And Allah put in you This is why we find evil despicable right? We find it repulsive.
We find it appalling. We don't like it. Our taste, original tastes uncorrupted taste comes from Phaedra and obviously it gets corrupted but not completely. This is why humanity agrees on a lot of moral principles. Is there any human being who loves to be known and recognized by everyone as a thief or a liar?
No, except for like very eccentric extreme cases, not cases right? But the reality is the majority of humans none of no one wants to ascribe himself to lying deception, evil. Thus Federalists third fortress still in action, like the Federalist not fully corrupted, there's a lot the good that you find among non Muslims, sometimes their sense of justice.
Sometimes their search for the truth,
whatever good humans have whatever good humans have. If it's not from Revelation, this then it is the remains of their Photron
it's the remains of romantic all it's just not it's their philosophies. Where did these philosophies come from these philosophies, philosophies have corruption and they have some good stuff, the good stuff, where does it come from the remains of their fatwa, you know, made it to their philosophies.
There's no good that comes from that doesn't come from Allah
no good in existence doesn't come from Allah, period. And we Muslims need to do away with our secularism,
our own version of secularism, there's no good that comes from other than Allah. Every good must be traced back to Allah. That's where it comes from. And what is the definition of evil departure from what Allah loves?
That's what evil is. So Allah Subhana Allah mentions the Quran aesthetic, a reminder reminder reminder of what reminder of this covenant of disagreement and this is why many of the scholars when they commented on the verse in Surah, to note your courtesy to your leader well elementum says when our Northern Ireland or the Lord you know,
the the the oil of this tree, again this is the olive tree, a tree is almost shining by itself without the need for fire.
But when you when you light this oil, you're adding its own light to the light of the fire and the it creates compound light Northern Ireland will Light upon light.
There's gonna say no fatality, either.
HTML mahalo Quran, the light of fitrah when the light of the Quran combines with it, that's what solid to note. The version of a note talks about.
That this is a 10th killer, remember has an adversarial homolog to highlight he said about when a hustler muscle he says about a seller for him because he's a tablet he said of all the Companions so he says canon when he says canon
he's talking about the Companions they were can who
can we are we doing a bit tougher call reality the Korean War beat together Korea additive occurring
while you're not the corner localu baton pocket
when narration for evil Hello Bula asthma Anwar Opsahl he said they used to be the Companions they used to alternate between difficult and to the court difficult is what searching for the truth in your mind searching for the truth looking for it studying, reading,
alternate between difficult anti Dakota Chris what this kind of awakening recovering your fitrah sometimes you read a verse and you say I know this. But you've never read this verse before. I know this, it registers with you. It's like you say this is mine. Right? Yeah, that's when you were that's when the Quran awaken something in the football and you feel you feel the sense that's familiar, I know that I recognize this. This is why good is called my roof recognized racket, it's part of your football your your pure federal recognizes it acknowledges it. Right. So
they, you they would alternate between to call unto the court so they would think and search and they would recover that these meanings and this is where the Teskey comes about. This is where they allow the hearts to what to soak in the meanings of the Quran.
And live those meanings if the truth of the Quran the Quran is not only intellectual
and is a huge pitfall. People think the Quran is information it's like a textbook you read you become an intellectual. No, the Quran awakens your heart it gives you a real experience you start to see things recognize things it awakens things you opens up a different world which is the world of the unseen before you eyes and it's a real witness. It's a personal first hand witness. It's not imagination some people think oh your imagined knew not imagining that's a real thing. You will have access to the world of the unseen that's called buslee era
that's your federal recognizes it but that's the light of the Quran. That's the light of the Quran.
Can Oh yeah, we'll do one every day the cordiality for Cordoba CReality, the corona loop and they would entice the hearts to speak, you will now have the Kunal Kulu button or pocket until the heart spoke, spoke the truth, because the speech of the heart speech of the heart is what we call faith belief.
You know the, the early generations they would say a man or woman What am I alone?
Eman is speech and action does that mean speech of the tongue and actions of the limbs know there's consensus on the meaning of this? It's speech of the heart and actions of the heart. And then speech of that followed by speech of the tongue and actions of the limbs. So the Quran the heart has speech and action. What is the speech of the Quran? Its belief, faith. The actions of the heart is what we call states of the heart, love, hope,
repentance, fear, trust to work on
connection to Allah humility before Allah for sure. before Allah, longing to Allah, but
this humility before Allah Subhan humbleness before Allah subhanaw taala. These are the actions of the these are the actions of the heart. The speech is the belief
is the belief, the content, Allah is real for you. Allah is not just an idea.
Jana is not just an idea that okay, let me imagine no, it's real you really like Allah gives you a taste of it if you truly believe
Allah will give you a taste of it.
So that's what the Quran does. It awakens that well, you're not the owner Kuru Bahat. Turner Takata Adel Ebola has Martin website, and they entice the hearts to speak and when the hearts spoke, lo and behold, it turned out the hearts have eyes and ears.
Interesting. Something that is completely alien to our world today, right? Come even to the Muslims, like what are you talking about? Then people will think come Sophie right or is turning Sophie?
This is an Hassanal basally? These are the statements of even Taymiyah have no claim.
But you know what? Again, we we
were having we're having trouble relating to Allah subhanaw taala we have been we have been affected by again modern ways of of education, that we turn everything into ideas, ideas, ideas, yeah, I just fill up my head, but the heart is dead. This used to be known in the early days as hypocrisy
that you have the external things but you don't have the internal things. But the reality is the heart Allah looks at what at your hearts, as the Prophet SAW Selim said. So the Quran is a reminder, it awakens your heart and this is why we engage this class is about what engaging with the Quran. And we try not to make it information.
We obviously you have to share information because the way to communicate there has to be information. But that's not just the whole thing that's part of the recipe. The real recipe is truly do you take it to heart is it changing you? Is it awakening you? Is it awakening your heart? Is it giving life to your heart because the Quran is life. Quran is a source of life for the heart. And if it's not a source of of life in your heart is not being revived by it. Then there is a screen that is blocking it and that's a big problem.
You have to address it.
Allah subhanaw taala describes the believers family in an officer told me man,
the believers, you know when the verses of Allah are revealed to increase them in faith, and Muslim you're supposed to when you read the Quran, you remember supposed to increase if your Eman is not increasing, you're not engaging with Yvonne properly
you're not reading the Quran like the prophets of salaam read it. You're not reading the Quran like the Companions read it. You're not reading the Quran like the Muslim scholars and worshippers read it you're not
you don't want to read the Quran is orient as an Orientalist who understands the Quran knows the meanings but never believes in it.
And there are there are only Orientalist who memorize the whole Quran
and they were non Muslim.
And they never believed.
So what's the difference? The difference between the Muslim and non Muslim is what happens in the heart. How does the Quran shape your heart? How does it affect your heart
so that's the Quran is death Kyra says kill.
Okay, so it's a reminder, it is a reminder. We're in Allah Allah Mondamin como que Debian and again the Allah says, We know that there will be there are disbelievers among you. And there will be those who disbelieve, Allah knows and Allah knows his creation. But Allah is just making that come out to the surface and be clear. We're in Allah Hassan Al caphyon And subhanAllah. The Quran is mercy.
That's one of the miracles of the Quran. It is mercy for the believers, for the Serbs, those who seek the truth
and it's a source of destruction and pain and agony to the people
That's one of the miracles of the Quran.
So this is why it shows that if the Quran is benefiting you and is giving you more mercy than that's a sign there is faith, there is belief. But if the Quran is not helping, then that's a red flag.
That's a red flag, someone reads the Quran and it's not impacting them. It's not making them better people. It's not increasing their Eman is not improving their character. Then there is something serious with their engagement with the Quran. And this hour the Prophet Sam describes the whole adage when they describe your Quran Al Quran Naija wissota Rocky
All right. They read the Quran and it never goes beyond their collarbones. What is the person I'm talking about? Here Quran Al Quran, they are reciting the Quran.
Allah Yuja was Zootopia Yama doesn't go beyond the collarbones. What does that mean?
Because you're supposed to read, and that reading is supposed to engage with the heart and awaken something. So the prophecy says, it does not go beyond this level from their mouth down to this level. It doesn't reach the heart.
So they're not increasing in their email.
They're not increasing in their email. Did they read the Quran? A lot.
A lot. You know, when they companions there was there were battles with the with the coverage. When the Companions saw them, they couldn't believe they said the forehead of one of them, any of them. The forehead of any of them was similar to the
to the knee of a camel. Have you seen a camel money?
Because the camel goes down and up on its knees right all the time and it gets very rough, right? Very thick skinned dead skin, right? He said, They said their foreheads were just like, camel knees. From what
Where did all of this go? It didn't reach the heart.
It didn't reach the heart. So this is why a believer in the Quran has to eat your heart. If it doesn't reach your heart, you know, you're doing something wrong, and you have to be alarmed. And you have to find a solution. Okay, we know that has caffeine, okay, so Allah says, We're known as the Ramana Maharshi found what metal needed more meaning? When is equal volume in Isla Hazara and we sent down Quran that is healing and mercy for the believers. That's what it offers. Wallah. Easy to volley. Mina ILAHA sala de the wrongdoers what does it do? What's the effect of the Quran on them? More loss? That's one of the miracles of the Quran. One of the miracle someone approaches the Quran
and they don't have the good intention. And they are not searching searching for the truth. Truly, they're not sincere at any level. What is the Quran going to give them? They're going to be confused? Is the Quran confusing? No.
One will reflect back their own confusion
and they will get more confused. That's the miracle. That's the miracle of the Quran or one of the miracles of the Quran. We now will have polyethene Subhan Allah this description so
we didn't we didn't read that part right? Okay.

The first is certain knowledge which is knowledge that is learned from reports, then comes a certainty of sight which is knowledge that is attained through vision and seeing, then comes absolute truth which is knowledge that is attained through experience and direct interaction. This is how the this Holy Quran is all the knowledge that it contains is supported by definitive, definitive proof and whoever experiences
what it contains of facts and knowledge of beliefs will attain absolute truth. So glorify the Name of your Lord, the Most Great that is declare him to be above all that is not befitting to His Majesty, and sanctify him by remembering the attributes of His Majesty, beauty, beauty and perfection. This is our clock. So the three levels of the attain right certainty three levels of when we go from the lowest level to the highest
level the strongest level, he says anybody attain
knowledge of certainty. What does that when you get the news of something, you receive the news, you don't see it. You just hear the news of something that is certain you're certain that the person is telling the truth and this really happened, you accepted that familiarity.
Okay, that's the basic level where most of us reside most of the time. Then he says he nearly attain
the eye of certainty. And that's when you see it with your physical eye.
You see something with your with your face? Isn't that more certain than hearing about it? Right? Isn't that more certain? You see it with your own eyes? You didn't only hear about it, but you saw that you saw that okay.
So, this is a higher level, what is the highest level happily again
have polyethylene true certainty? True certainty. Where does it come from? comes from a remodeler Kobe has set it though it will Mubasher as though he translated it. The translators translated it as experience. But though is more than experience
though because you when you taste something,
when you taste it, when you taste it, and and mobile Shala is that you personally engage in it
personally engage in it. So Allah subhanaw taala talks about the Quran he says we're in a who will have polyarchy in the Quran gives you what the highest level
and this is why it's called as when they talk about people their levels of belief in the Quran, and their acceptance or their learning from the Quran. There are people who take the Quran as news
and they believe in it accepted. He says this is the lowest level of faith, it's acceptable it's faith and interest person to Jannah. But that's the lowest level.
A higher level is someone
who has seen it with their own eyes and this is what Ibrahim and he said I'm asked for Ibraheem Alehissalaam believed that Allah could bring back to life dead bodies, right? He believed in that Allah because Allah told him
but he said, I want to see with my own eyes. So he wanted what I interview again, he wanted a higher level I interview again.
So he said Allah, Rob biryani came to him and he said, Oh Allah show me how do you bring to life dead? Dead bodies. So Allah showed them the story of the birds right? So he saw that but then Allah gave him a higher level of faith and belief and it was what how Kalia clean
and happily a clean comes from where comes from Revelation from Quran. It is more certain you know it more intimately than the things you see are the things you hear it's stronger than your senses. Just reading about it in the Quran.
This is where the Quran should lead you if you engage with it correctly. To Quran gives you certainty you see, Jana, and the hellfire, you see them with your heart eyes, and they become more compelling in your experience than me seeing and holding this bottle.
How can I tell you what you know, there are things actually you see and engage in and they become more compelling? Because you might say, Oh, you might say I see everything that I hear everything and all of them are on the same plane? No. Let's say there's a group of people here and there is one of them, points a gun at you.
Which reality in everything you see is more compelling. Isn't that more real?
Right, it's at the center of your being.
And everything else recedes to the margins. So they're not at the same level of certainty at that time.
What the Quran gives you is even more stronger than that. That's why when the believers when they saw death coming at them, they didn't waver because they saw something more compelling with with their with their, with the eyes of the heart. Does the heart have eyes? Again, don't think physically but yes. How the diploma done one of the greatest have a debit and he says, in Allah azza wa jal Holla Holla Holla Khalil Abdi, I Nene philosophy. Why Nene? If you can be in our Lord Allah will be able to hear how you run
Fattah hella Hawaii he'll let you in. If you behave Uppsala be Hema LA.
Halle Deborah Medan one of the greatest of it. I think he was from Yemen he moved to a Shem
and he was what he has beautiful statements. So he says Allah created for humans two eyes in their face and two eyes in the heart and if Allah was good with a person he opens his to her his two eyes that are in the heart so he sees with them the world of the unseen
that's what the Quran gives you
Have coeliac in. It's even a more compelling reality and perception and experience than what you see. And obviously what you see is the most compelling of your senses more than what you hear.
Yeah, so that's why the companions were described by many people can or
cannot open a bandana home. I've done harmful collarbones. There were people whose bodies were on the earth, but the hearts were in the heavens.
The hearts were in the heavens.
Okay. So again, as we engage with the Quran, what we want to do is what we're trying to pull from the Quran is that kind of experience. It's not only like I can read and memorize stuff, and I can pass the exam.
You know, that's part of the process, obviously, because you will need Knowledge. Knowledge is like the fuel for your faith. But you can't stop there and you shouldn't stop there. There is something else that the heart that the Quran does for your heart. And as its revives it, it brings it light.
It brings it light, it awakens the light of your fitrah and it brings it more light.
This is how the Companions reached you know, the high level of excellence in their in their faith has a baby smell of bacon, Eileen, glorify your Lord, and this is what you are alive, for you are alive to glorify Allah, you are alive to worship Allah to praise Allah to celebrate the greatness, the glory, the beauty of Allah subhanaw taala and live in that and live in this state.
Any other thing, any other preoccupation in this life, if it takes you from that, then it's a lie. And it's a source of destruction. We have made Allah like secondary in our life. And we have taken everything we have taken other things like our career and our lifestyle, we've made that primary and that's why we're struggling. We were given this life or given lifestyle, we were given everything in this world, just as utility to help us fulfill that mission, which is worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, you don't make it secondary.
Everything else is secondary to it, everything actually helps out it should feed into it. This is how things should be arranged. In our lives, the moment you change that order, you get in so much trouble, endless trouble. And that's why humans is they keep in our following lifestyle that is not please Allah subhanaw taala, there will still bring upon themselves more trouble, more confusion, more pain, more death, more destruction.
And this is why a believer is supposed to be a carrier of light,
a carrier of light, but you have to achieve it in yourself. You have to ignite the light of faith and awaken the light of fitrah in your heart first, and that requires a lot of private work. A lot of private work when no one sees you, no one recognizes you, and no one acknowledges you and no one is a fan of you. No one admires you. And you work so hard.
You work for months and for years and for years non stop.
But if you think being a Muslim is just bringing yourself out to the public, memorizing some stuff and start just shouting stuff here and there and fighting and having debates and things like that, you know, Allah will bring some benefit, because you're engaging with the truth anyways. But you know what, you're literally ruining your heart.
You're making a very bad case for yourself.
And whatever darkness inside whatever dark corners there are in your heart that you have not fixed. We're shaytaan resides where shaytaan builds citadels and castles and does his work. You know, as you preach, that's going to come out.
That's gonna come out and you will communicate it in subtle ways and people will get that
and there will not be true Baraka in your, in your data. Baraka is not necessarily you know, the attention, the numbers, the views, not necessarily that it's the impact, what counts with Allah, what counts with Allah subhanaw taala because we don't want to, again, take the standards and the parameters of what people who don't care about Allah and we say, oh, that's how you you know if they're successful or not.
No, it's only with what you achieve with Allah subhanaw taala and what Allah uses you what good Allah uses you for.
That's where the Bala case. So we ask Allah Subhana Allah to guide our hearts and purify our hearts. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect the Muslims everywhere. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to keep the Muslims in Gaza and in Palestine in his care. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala
give the oppressors, what they truly deserves, and the one what they truly deserve, and the ones who are complicit in that, what they truly deserve. Subhanallah become a bit of a mess for as long as you know what hamdulillahi rabbil aalameen If there are any questions on the topic, we can take some two or three maximum for
Heart and Soul
there is a difference, but they are pretty much the same.
It's a complex issue. The heart is spiritual, and it has to do with the soul. But the heart exactly is not the soul.
But you can't just separate them. It's not like this is one entity, this is another entity. No, you can't speak about the heart without the soul. You can't speak about the soul without the heart. But in the Islamic tradition and in the Quran, Allah talks about the heart. When when the soul is mentioned, Allah says Allah rowhome In embryology say the soul is from the matters of milord. So the best for humans is to talk about the heart. And obviously that includes the soul. You can't talk about the heart without the soul being there, but we don't bring the word soul and keep talking about that because there are many things we don't know about the soul. Yeah, and what really matters
religiously in Islam about the soul is what we have in the heart. So it's the best concept to use Yeah.
Anything else sisters
so why was
Very good question. The brother says, How come like people do a lot of very bad haulage. But you know, there's they don't have faith. That's the issue with Buddha. That's why Buddha is dangerous. Innovation. heretical innovation is very, very risky. Very, very dangerous.
So the thing is, what Eman look at Iman because some people have something in their heart, but it's not what Allah wants. It's not what Allah prescribed. So Eman. The reality of Eman is belief in Allah belief in the unseen Love of Allah, fear of Allah. These are the main elements that we're talking about everything stems from love from the love of Allah fear stems from Love of Allah hope in Allah's mercy and Jana, and
that if the heart is in that state, if a person acts from that state of faith, they are humbled, and they know that the path to Allah is what is the path that Allah showed me.
And that's true the Prophet Seisen is what we say let you know how Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, the Hawaii bridge. So the prophets of salaam told the Companions, the Hawaii bridge. Now we don't know about their intentions.
But we have no
like, it's impossible for the intention to be purely good and for them to go wrong. It's impossible. So, there might be some good intention, but there was there was definitely poor intention. Okay, so if the Howard had Eman they should have taken the way of the prophets of salaam the way of the prophets of salaam was what will be companions. So the Hawa bridge they said about the Companions, Henry John will acknowledge that they are men, we are men, they can reason understand the Quran, we can understand the Quran. What does this tell you? There's a sense of competition and power. So that's something that compromises intention.
Has an imbecile He has a beautiful statement and it goes missed all the time. He was asked about the Howard it's called a homeless Habu Dunia
was asked about the house these worshippers he said he said they are people of dunya there are people who love the dunya. Now this is mentioned by Imam Al Sharpton let Assam and there are different commentaries on what really that means the mama shelter himself even explains by he says because he has an imbecile he said look, they want to topple the, the killer of the Khalifa as man when I found out their loved one who afterwards I leave nobody thought it afterwards it has an afterwards morale we are and so on and so forth. That was the focus of the coverage. They said these people don't understand the Quran they applying the Quran wrong, they are disbelievers. And there
are issues as well with their understanding why because they didn't take the knowledge from the companions. The path of the Prophet SAW Selim.
Yeah, so he said, No one prevented them from praying, no one prevented them from the carnal and prevented them from Hajj. No one won't. No one prevented them from the Quran. So what are they asking for? They're asking for power.
So the reality says if you dig in these people's intentions, what they want is power. What they're craving is power, but they put it in the under the guise of religion. Maybe they themselves are not fully aware of that because they didn't work on themselves. There are many theories as to really what the reality of the outage is, but if someone wants to be safe, and this is what should concern us, is that
You should know that you are a slave of Allah, that you are a servant of Allah, that you belong to Allah. So you should seek ALLAH subhanaw taala This is what your life should be about, then the only path the only way is what the Prophet SAW Selim came with. And how do we know what the Prophet was some came with this the Quran in his sunnah. Where do we get the understanding of that from the companions of the Prophet SAW Salem and this was preserved through a tablet in it was preserved through tablet Debian and it was handed down to us and you will find it you will find it in terms of you will find it among the four the four Imams
and live Hadith as well. And you will find it the Arcada where will you find it? You will find it with an Imam Malik Imam Shafi Imam Muhammad Al Jose
amendment adultery afterwards and so on and so forth. Even a Cosima
then all of these colors and the ones who sort of put the attainder and especially the arcade and the belief systematically was really the one who did the very good work very good job is a bit team era him on long term and then he made the case to respond to the philosophers
and to refute them but they agreed that that even to me I really should was very simple straightforward. Okay. The goal for Arcadia possibly Yeah, all verses and hadith is how you teach the reader but he wrote complex books, why for the intellectuals who were using a philosophical way and he refuted them.
Okay, so, Leila Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, you will not go like the hermit in sha Allah Tala. Okay, one final question quickly sisters.
Okay, the sister over there, go ahead.
What does what
so the at that time, there was what the right hands possessed,
with their hand rights possessed, and that's what it is.
It's not existent today, so we can't understand it. We don't know how to relate to it.
We don't know how to relate to it. Yeah, we're just going to project some modern ideas about what that really is. And obviously, we don't like that.
Because we are again, we are educated by atheistic ideas, by humanistic ideas by
naturalistic who don't believe in Allah subhanaw taala, who think Islam was backward. This is what we were taught, well, this is what we were taught.
This is what we were taught. And now when we come to these ideas that are not part of our reality, obviously, we have all types of fancy ideas of them. We probably take that from you know, 1000 nights and a night and one night, or some of those movies about the Orient, right and about the east, about the exotic east and all of that stuff. And all of that enak is inaccurate, but I would encourage you if you're truly interested and you want to know do a research and you will find out
do a proper research but from Muslim sources, then you will be you will find you will find exactly what that means how that was practiced, but it will require some effort on your part. Okay, just gonna clear so last semester, how do I have you ha
