hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayidina Muhammad Ali he was happy he will tell you in woman TV on BSN Ilario Medina, Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. We continue our reading and commentary on tafsir Al Imam is Saudi Aramco Allahu Allah. And again, we said, we read the Arabic text, we try to, again, break the surah into sections, so it's easier for you to follow. So we read the Arabic then brother Ryan with the English translation. And finally, once we go through the Tafseer, of the solar, as per Imams 30, we try to provide a little bit of commentary again, to make connections to our daily life, or what kind of benefit we can draw from this surah. And again,

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

take this as an opportunity that you actually read, and succeeded in understanding. And again, there is something you know, we have something in our tradition that is called muda rasa will muda Cara,

00:01:03--> 00:01:17

a very beautiful tradition that in in massage scholars would read the books along with their students, with sometimes with commentary, sometimes just reading the text. And this is how many people will read a lot of books, just by means of that.

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

And this is again, because

00:01:21--> 00:01:47

as it says, a lot over a form BFC here, we only have one here that a person has weakness when they are by themselves. Whereas with their brothers with their sisters, there is more energy. There is more energy. This is a common human phenomenon. There is things we can do in congregation you find some motivation to do that. And to it's good to use this human dynamic.

00:01:48--> 00:02:09

It's good to utilize it. This is why one reason why we have selected Gemma congregational prayer, somehow there is a spirit that you are able to capture that you don't find if you do things alone. But you will find them in congregation and then almost all the languages there are statements proverbs that actually talks about this thing.

00:02:12--> 00:02:18

So I think the Bedouins have something that just popped in my mind. It's nice to say nephesh region, you hear region.

00:02:19--> 00:02:49

By the breathing the spirit of a group of men awakens men, it means that weakens the heart or weakens people. So sometimes you get and I think it's very common today in the success literature, they say you want to be successful hang out. with successful people, you will catch the spirit. It's more of a contamination so it's good to catch it. So again, reading, many people would read a lot of books just by means of congregation.

00:02:51--> 00:02:53

So sometimes reading could get boring.

00:02:55--> 00:03:02

And that requires willpower patience, to continue with it. Be it nila, Hey Tyler, don't you're good.

00:03:04--> 00:03:10

They will be recruited with filiation in the hereafter and be subjected to heavy oil, fire and conditions oil will involve the dragging of chains and shackles and other Corman's

It will bring overwhelm people with his hardships, they will be rewarded for their needs and will be divided into two groups, one group which will be in paradise and another which will be amazing fire.

They will be given to drink from avoiding artspring values on that intensity. If they cry for help, they will be given water like boiling drinks or coil that was called they're facing.

00:06:46--> 00:07:27

So apparently in the translation a skip this digression from your understanding. Okay, so let me read the Arabic then we'll get back to it.

at the Marathi OneNet annual gala last year.

00:07:32--> 00:07:34

So if you read that again that part again.

00:07:36--> 00:08:00

Some faces on that namely the Day of Resurrection movie humiliated, subjected to shame and disgrace to winning and wary that is they will be exhausted from the punishment drag on their faces and their faces will be covered with fire. As they burn an intensity hot fire that will encompass them on all sides. They will be given to drink from boiling hot spring that is one that is intensity

as for their food they will be they will have no food extra dry forms that will neither nourish nor satisfy.

the Allahu level mineral Quran.

00:09:28--> 00:09:59

As for the people of goodness, their faces on the day of resurrection will be joyful. That is the radius of this will show on their faces and their bodies will exhibit physical well being. Their faces will go and they will be extremely happy to contend with the result of their past endeavors that they set forth in this world of righteous deeds and kindness, kindness to the scales of the love. They will find their or their own store of and multiplying so they will be pleased with that outcome and will attain all that they wished for

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

They will be in a garden that contains all kinds of delight on high in a sublime location was last indwelling one above one another from which they will go out over and one Elias prepared for them Alana although for her Danny AK theological so lucky he led either almost mirror to be female it has a salary 10 I will behave we and Luna ha.

00:11:31--> 00:12:02

See how you know Hainan geria or Hadis Morgenson Avi Hello Yun geria to let you have a Giovanna We are sorry for your for refund. Kay Fisher who are an Eldorado fee has sold on our for our shuttle gemo Surya while majority fuel mozzafiato fee that you have will be merrily Hammond and Furoshiki the unit in what we are acquirable novela I won in monetary atonement and we're actually bacillary that year but we'll be activating ID hemo Asada data Paula beam of theory him your proof will be highly him will will Daniel McCullough dune

00:12:06--> 00:12:50

there will be a flowing spring that is there will be numerous scrapes that they will cause to flow and direct however they wish and wherever they want it there will be raised houses. The word translated here as coaches refers to a raised seating that is covered with soft and find clubs. And God is placed ready that is vessels filled with all kinds of delicious drinks that will be placed in front of them and prepared for them. They will be made available upon demand taken around for them by the moral use. When a man who must forfeit he was a dominant hurry well is developing already him I mean Allah Allah Muhammad Allah, but he will say UltraFit reusability que la have Adoree who

00:12:50--> 00:13:00

Ananya Baja Oh, you're so full have em fusi him was the Robbie uma Bertha Zoabi yo he'll Bush Opal Hassan Maratha, Imam Lu attune Muhammad Ali showhome equally Janet,

and cushions in roles, that is it also silk brocade and other fabrics that no one knows except Allah, they will be lined up for people to sit and recline on, and they will not need to go to the trouble of putting our and setting them up, rules themselves and find carpets spread out. This refers to beautiful carpets of places where they will sit will be filled with these carpets.

00:13:30--> 00:13:37

So this is half of this surah. And I would say since the sewers are getting longer, that's divided our commentary as well.

00:13:38--> 00:13:54

That would be more conducive to attention and will help us as well provide more relevant I would say commentary. So if you look at the first part of the Surah it actually talks about people on the Day of Judgment will be divided into two two groups of people.

00:13:56--> 00:14:17

Okay, that's okay hadith of Asha and Allah describes some kind of law the description of actual law has many words in the Quran. And each one highlights a side or an aspect of the airflow. So we have in the Quran again, a Sahaba up bomb to cobra and Aria

00:14:18--> 00:14:21

as as well as allows Zilla right.

00:14:23--> 00:14:39

This one is the last year or last year where does Russia come from as a word? Allah she has a description of the day of judgment from a Russia Rashi and Rashi the noun or must the Rashi what does that mean? This route

00:14:41--> 00:14:44

to cover something and infuse

00:14:45--> 00:14:56

cover and infuse not only cover so you could cover something from above right? But cover and infuse so get into all the details. Allah What does a lot of use this description for

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

when Lee

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

There al over

00:15:03--> 00:15:50

the last year, the verb here OSHA and the light as it covers and what covers what covers everything the night? Does it cover things from above or does it infuse the whole of existence? it infuses, that's a Russia, Russia. This is why Allah says about the people of the Hellfire. You have Russia Homolka boomin volta him Amin, Tatiana, Julian, you have a Shaham adapt the punishment will cover them and infuse their being from above and from underneath. So it's not like it there's a rounding is torturous, it will get into their their cells into their bones into their being so it will start bubbling from inside that pain.

00:15:51--> 00:16:17

See the profound imagery and description so that's a last year Why Allah she is going to fall from people and not only that is going to get into their being is going to disturb their life disturb their feelings and their thoughts and everything this is why people will be confused on that day tell attack a hadith Oh ALLAH Shia and there is a sense there's some sort of sense that you feel in the word of Russia that it takes over.

00:16:18--> 00:16:31

That is overwhelming. Again so powerful. I'll attack a hadith of Russia would you own now Allah divides people into two on the Day of Judgment people will be two types would you want to marry them Harsha

00:16:32--> 00:16:44

who sure is what we have crucial in Salah so Allah says would you often hear me them Harsha. I mean, to not just learn out on Halia these people are for sure. On the day of judgment and they will

00:16:45--> 00:16:48

enter in the it's entered the Hellfire why?

00:16:50--> 00:16:53

Sure and the Elva with this for sure. I mean

00:16:57--> 00:16:57

for sure.

00:16:59--> 00:17:25

If you notice, we've been taking a little bit of linguistic approach to the meanings but that's very important as well. Because Quran Quran Allah bu mobian The reason many people who speak Arabic read the Quran, but understand the very surface level of it is that you know, we have we have not got gotten ourselves into the Arabic language properly. There is a there is a there is a

00:17:26--> 00:17:35

logic in the Arabic language there is a system of meanings that's very profound that connects the sounds to the Latins to the words to the SEC to the human experience.

00:17:36--> 00:17:43

So we want to try to bring this together. Well, Harsha, what is this? And what does that mean? Animals? Yeah.

00:17:45--> 00:17:58

Yes. Crucial, for sure is actually to go down, like to rest still and fall down like rest. So not have some kind of.

00:18:01--> 00:18:03

So when something is still,

00:18:04--> 00:18:05

it sort of

00:18:06--> 00:18:17

shrinks as well? A little bit. Okay. So it doesn't occupy much space. That's the meaning of Kosho. So for sure is stillness, quietness. But that's outside.

00:18:19--> 00:18:25

So for sure, it starts in the heart. And it starts with one with fear of Allah, or sense of

00:18:28--> 00:18:56

Tallinn, Tallinn, understanding the glory, the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala. Sensing it in the heart, makes the body very humble. A close word to for sure is humble. English word. It's not it's not equivalent, but it's close, humbled something humbles itself. Allah describes the earth that when you send rain on it, hotshots with Maharsha. Also before we send the rain and whatever.

00:18:58--> 00:19:22

And you see that the earth is still there's nothing, there's no growth, right? There's no movement, there's no life in it. So still, why? Because there's no life. But here last month, Allah insha Allah Allah describes for sure, as a lot of hyperbole. Allahu Anhu saw a man in Salah and this man was praying but he was playing with his beard. And you know when men who have beards when they think their hand goes into their beard,

00:19:23--> 00:19:28

people who don't have a beard scratched their head will have a bead they think here

00:19:29--> 00:19:42

so the man was playing with his feet on hubbub said lo Harsha Apple boo ha ha Dre. Had the heart of this person had for sure his organs his limbs would have been quiet.

00:19:45--> 00:19:59

So you who knew him in a harsh way these faces on the Day of Judgment have confused why? Because now they see the reality so they are scared. So they are what overwhelmed from the Russia and they are petrified

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

and paralyzed.

00:20:03--> 00:20:31

They're not responsive. They're not showing any reaction. They're pale. That's for sure. Would you want to make them harsh? Yeah. And we let on NASA. So they act. They did. They've done a lot. And amela right action nicely, but not sub fatigue. Someone working themselves so hard to a point of burnout. That's not it's called not reach the limit, you limit in terms of energy. So

00:20:32--> 00:20:34

I think one of the companies said,

00:20:36--> 00:21:10

either competitors or Tabitha Yeah, whatever the Companions, I forgot who that exactly was. But he saw they went to a sham, Sham had Christians in Palestine, Jordan, Syria, was predominantly Christians. I, and it was mainly Arab Christians are Christians, Allah Sasana. Okay. So they show that these people had what so they stood by a monastery. And in this monastery, there was a Christian priest that would pray for long,

00:21:11--> 00:21:54

most of the day pray. And he had a very tough life in terms of like austerity, it would abstain from all the pleasures of life. So the companion looked at that, I think, probably it's the modern armor. He said, Would you work on your money than harsh? Yeah. And he led to NASA, Tesla now unhappy faces that have for sure. So diverse here, as well, as Sally said, talks about the day of judgment, but the companion here I think, our beloved Norma he used it to describe something he saw that a Christian was worshiping and exhausting himself in worship. And he says, All of that is going to lead where Tesla not on hammy, they will attain or they will reach a fire that is blazing that is

00:21:54--> 00:21:55


00:21:56--> 00:21:57

And then he cried

00:21:58--> 00:22:06

this way man said he had the commentary and that was not translated in English version. He says that's not the intended meaning, although it's correct to me.

00:22:08--> 00:22:24

Okay. And scholars use this when they want against bid that they said bid the other people engage in bids. They seem to be doing great acts of worship a lot of but because it's not in line with the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Salem, it will be rejected. It will be rejected.

00:22:25--> 00:22:53

Okay, so these are the people of the fields hellfire. Allah describes them Allah describes what they're going to eat, et cetera, how their life will be. Then Allah talks about the people of Jannah Paradise, he gets description of them, then Allah describes the pleasures they're going to have. I think they were clear in the translation. But one thing I want to highlight, it's not people when they think about Jana, they're all think about what they think about the food they drink, the intimacy, right? The greenery, the rivers.

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

That's true, that's part of Jana, but that's more of the bonus that you get in general.

00:23:01--> 00:23:04

The bonus that you get in general, what is the reality of Jannah?

00:23:05--> 00:23:10

Some people say I don't as they ascribe to one of the worshipers Robbie either way, you're right.

00:23:11--> 00:23:22

Robbie, Allah wa was a worshiper, but again, scholars have criticize, criticize some of her approach that that it was a little bit extreme, that she would say Allahu Maynila Boudicca

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

throw her button fee genetic. Well as often monadic Allah can Abu Dukkha the habit and Vic or Allah I'm not worshipping you, because I'm scared of your hellfire. Or that I want you Jenna. I worship you because I love you.

00:23:43--> 00:23:45

So the reality is what is Jenna

00:23:50--> 00:23:52

Jenna is the house of the love of Allah.

00:23:55--> 00:24:02

Jenna is about meeting Allah is about being close to Allah. The others are details. These are other things food to fill your time with.

00:24:03--> 00:24:13

The pleasant the beautiful, we don't underestimate them, the Quran is full of them. And this is why you know someone again, probably someone without so much knowledge

00:24:15--> 00:24:26

loss analysis in salats le Emraan. About people about the Companions after the Battle of mean coming up the dunya Amin community will ask

00:24:27--> 00:24:31

among you are those who will be dunya and among you are those who wouldn't be Ashera.

00:24:33--> 00:24:59

And Allah is talking about the Muslim army had what Muslims and had hypocrites some hypocrites. So Allah was talking about the hypocrites who wanted the dunya so someone on the head this person, they said, why in a minute Ebola and where are those who want Allah? Not the dunya or the afro? So I think even cathedra responded to that. He said, What a stupid comment that is. And sometimes the scholars would actually use words like that. And somebody might say, you know,

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

should be more respectful in but someone when someone is disrespectful in subtle ways,

00:25:08--> 00:25:31

and subtle ways these people, sometimes they deserve a slap on the face. So this is stupid, because what is the alpha? What is the reality of Jannah its closeness to Allah, its love of Allah subhanho wa Taala Alright, so one interesting thing about that Allah mentions about the people, the reward that the people of paradise are going to get is lettuce mouth, he had area

00:25:33--> 00:25:51

Nazma Allah mentions this as a great advantage or feature of paradise, lattice Malfi hallelujah, you will not hear an empty word in Jannah idle talk La Jolla meaning where like any speech that has no true genuine benefit in it.

00:25:53--> 00:26:02

So people gossiping talking about random things, or things that benefit is called level level. It's not evil. It's not good.

00:26:04--> 00:26:52

Even in paradise, there's nothing like that. There's only good Nazma Allah says in surah Allah Allah is known if you had like one, one theme, in their opinion, and Solomon said, the people in Paradise will not hear. idle talk empty words meaningless words, will attack FEMA nor vulgar, lowly language kind of language in Canaan, Salem and Sarah they were just here words of beauty, peace, words of blessings, that's what they're going to hear. So what do you think most of the speech of the people in Paradise would be? The prophets of Salem told us something about this? This is why people think all the time to enjoy and this tells us again what is what paradise really is about.

00:26:53--> 00:26:57

What will the people the most common thing people in Paradise will say or engage in?

00:27:01--> 00:27:02

Anyone knows.

00:27:04--> 00:27:06

The killer specifically which

00:27:08--> 00:27:10

I can hear whispers speak up.

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

The Prophet SAW Selim said, you will have Moon at the sea Hakim, to lemon and nevus people in Paradise will Say Subhan Allah the glorify Allah is just as naturally as you breathe, how do you breathe,

00:27:28--> 00:27:34

they have some panel. Why? Because the most sweetness they get from Subhanallah

00:27:35--> 00:27:48

so people want to get to Jana but you have Subhan Allah here, and we don't feel the sweetness we don't enjoy the sweetness, people in paradise. Just as naturally as you breathe unconsciously they will be engaging in what

00:27:50--> 00:27:51

Subhan Allah

00:27:52--> 00:28:03

has some scholars say that would be more representative of all of the vicar Subhan Allah Al Hamdulillah. That means they would derive the most sweetness from remembering the last Anatolian paradise.

00:28:04--> 00:28:08

And this is a feature that we have here, but we don't appreciate it.

00:28:11--> 00:28:12


00:28:13--> 00:28:56

let's move on to the next half carbon elements cellular automata Allah will be learning the ship on the Virgin fly on waroona in an EBD key for folio. We're in a similar eco Fiat to LNG value case and also not to what you learned obligates us what they had for that kid in intermodal.

00:29:14--> 00:29:23

urges those who do not believe in the messenger so are unable to sit down and other people who reflect upon the creations of Allah that point to his ones

00:29:25--> 00:29:49

who did not consider the camels how they were created. That is do they not forget the creation of the camels and how Allah has made them to be of service to people. So revealing them and provide many benefits of evil name, mountains how they are firmly set up in a very amazing manner that gives stability to the earth and protects it from shaping Allah has deposited in the earth which is of great

abrahamsen hassleholm lnmu Roman ship mcphedran worship coos was the last year with whom did Allah hidden behind me

00:31:34--> 00:31:35

and the earth

00:31:37--> 00:31:40

under earth, how it spread out that is has been spread out and

00:31:42--> 00:32:25

so that features may settle on its surface, and so that people may be able to tell the earth and build on it and travel through routes that lead to different destinations. He understood that the fact that the roof has been spread out does not contradict the fact that it is round, that is surrounded by stars and heavenly bodies in all directions, as it is indicated by text, reason, visible faculties and observation as is well known to most people, especially nowadays, when people have discovered most of it was what Allah has bestowed upon them of means of transportation. The idea that describing something has spread out means that it cannot be around is only applicable in

00:32:25--> 00:32:45

the case of a very small body than if it is spread out can no longer be around. As for the Earth, which is an extremely big body, maybe around and spread out at the same time. The two letters are not mutually exclusive, as is well known to experts. So I'm admonish Mohammed from you are the

00:32:46--> 00:33:17

one that is correct, remind people exhort them, warn them and give them lightnings for you have been sent to people and punish them, but have not been you have not been sent to control them or have power over them or to be in charge of their games. If you do not. If you do what you are obliged to do, then there is no blame on you after that. This is like the person which almost kind of Medina says, and you are not central compelled him to believe, but admonish

00:33:18--> 00:33:47

those who fear by morning sort of offline for a fight, or whoever turns away and just believes that is whoever turns away from the obedience and disbelieves Allah, Allah will punish him with the greatest punishment, that is the severe and eternal punishment very to us will be their return, that is all people will return to us and we will gather them on the Day of Resurrection. And it is for us to call them to account and we will bring them to account for whatever they did have good and evil.

00:33:50--> 00:33:56

Okay, so the second half of the soul is really an invitation to everyone

00:33:58--> 00:34:03

to reflect on the world in which we live. And

00:34:05--> 00:34:51

Allah subhanaw taala sent two books to us, a book that is revealed divine book, which is the Quran, and a book that is created, and that is the creation the world around us. So there is a smaller, the revealed words that we hear from the recitation of the Quran will add to the middle ear, which is the scene science of Allah and His creation. All of that invites to Allah subhana wa, tada and the apple that Allah ascribes to the heart. In US sometimes we really get funny, funny kinds of discussions. And unfortunately, sometimes we think there is some merit in this question or this discussion. You know, there's been a long debate is the apple in the brain or is it in the heart?

00:34:54--> 00:34:57

And this question is based on misunderstanding of the words.

00:34:58--> 00:34:59

First, what is the meaning of app

00:35:00--> 00:35:02

Are people translated as intellect.

00:35:04--> 00:35:06

But that's not the actual

00:35:07--> 00:35:08


00:35:09--> 00:35:13

is the ability to process information. And that's what's called flicker

00:35:14--> 00:35:18

in the Arabic tradition in Arabic term just called flicker processing information.

00:35:19--> 00:35:36

Can is more like wisdom and reason and good judgment. That's what Apple is. So if somebody said, it's very interesting the pain that people get into, and people start to use neurology now and say, you know, there is proof that there is brain cells in the heart.

00:35:39--> 00:36:29

You don't need to go down that route. Because the problem is not physiological. solving this problem is not physiological. This is a misunderstanding of language. The after that a lot of refers to is the actor that is able to draw the lessons, the meaning the ultimate meaning of things. And that's a matter of what spiritual today, they try to call it more in psychology more the meaning, concept of meaning the meaning of life, right? It's more of you glean from everything in life, an overall purpose and overarching purpose. Okay, so they still try to probe it with these ideas. But that's, you know, that's the concept. That's what the, that's what the heart does. That's what the spiritual

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

insight into the facts into the facts of this life. So if you contemplate the creation of Allah,

00:36:37--> 00:36:50

without obsession with details, and without bias, it is definitely going to point you to Allah subhanaw taala. And to the fact that your life is not just an accident,

00:36:51--> 00:36:56

everything is right in place, everything is so well balanced.

00:36:57--> 00:37:12

The fine tuning of the universe, your place in the universe, how everything goes, even if you don't have even to look at the whole world and the universe, just look at your life, how everything in your life was put in place. Unless you play the victim card, you blind.

00:37:13--> 00:37:15

Forget about the victim card, you won't see anything.

00:37:17--> 00:37:45

But if you are curious, and you look at your life, everything is perfectly designed. And it points you to Allah, the fortunes and the misfortunes. They actually remind you of Allah, they invite you in this why the poet said with equally che in the whole area to to do Allah Allahu wa hago. And in everything, there is a sign, there is a clear indication that he is the one. He's the one that has the right to be worshipped. That's the meaning of one name.

00:37:47--> 00:37:49

And fame has a very, very beautiful

00:37:51--> 00:37:57

argument, where he says if you contemplate the creation of Allah that you will find that

00:37:58--> 00:38:05

the more the more human need, humans need something, the more it is available around them.

00:38:07--> 00:38:19

When humans need something more, Allah makes them more available around them in their environment. So he says, people need more than anything else, and more urgently than anything else, because

00:38:21--> 00:38:25

you can abstain from water for a few days, and still survive.

00:38:26--> 00:38:30

But you can't stop breathing more than a few minutes, and then you'll be gone. Right?

00:38:32--> 00:38:35

So he says, you'll find that air is more available

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

and more abundant than water.

00:38:39--> 00:38:47

And then you can abstain from food longer than you can abstain from water. And this is why there is more water in the world and there is food, solid food.

00:38:49--> 00:39:00

When he says people need shelter, but not as urgently as they need food and drink and air. And it's available but not in the same abundance.

00:39:01--> 00:39:12

And then he goes on and on naming things in the world. That this is a very subtle wisdom that is clear if you contemplate the creation that everything you need is available

00:39:13--> 00:39:18

in terms of its quantity and accessibility to the level of your need of it.

00:39:20--> 00:39:23

Then he says what humans need the most

00:39:26--> 00:39:29

is knowledge of Allah and love of Allah.

00:39:30--> 00:39:37

More than more than because he says if you're deprived of air or water or food, your body's going to die.

00:39:39--> 00:39:45

But he said if you are deprived of knowledge of Allah love of Allah, your heart will die. And that's a bigger death.

00:39:46--> 00:39:59

So he says humans need knowledge of Allah and love of Allah and connection to Allah more than anything else. And Allah made it available around them in everything. So everything is an envy everything screams in your face on

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

lot, but you know, because we blind and deaf, we don't see that we don't hear it.

00:40:06--> 00:40:44

So that was an argument that you made. And this is what the surah is talking about. Look at the creation around you. Now somebody says there's no camels today around us. Look at something else. This is representative just tells you, okay? whatever environment you're in, look around, you see the skies, you see the, you know, the, you see the clouds, you see the rain, you see the greenery growing, flourishing, right? You see humans look alive. Look at people being born people are dead. Look at people who become successful people committing suicide, people getting into a marriage, people getting into a divorce, look at all of that will lie it reminds you of Allah, it tells you

00:40:44--> 00:41:00

there's nothing there's going to stay but Allah subhanaw taala nothing is going to stay like it is but Allah sprinkle everything is temporary is going to leave, everything will get to a point it will flourish and it will die. But Allah subhanaw taala everything has a lifecycle. Allah subhanaw taala is the same as permanent.

00:41:03--> 00:41:14

That's what the soul is telling you be reflective. Look around, look around, we live in a trance today. And we think we're the most intelligent, you know, generation of all humanity. And that's when Allah one of the curses of our time.

00:41:15--> 00:41:23

Human somehow think we that are the most intelligent, by no specialists, by the way, in anthropology, and in history.

00:41:24--> 00:41:49

Allah a few times have come across some of the like, world renowned specialists in this field. They say, you know, probably were the most indoctrinated the most blind generation that ever lived on the face of earth. Why? And the Prophet son, by the way, spoke about that the messengers also then said about the as we come nearer to the Day of Judgment, the prophets of salaam says, If shoe

00:41:52--> 00:41:53

wear can Loulan

00:41:54--> 00:42:01

people will write people learn education will be widespread, but there will be no knowledge, little knowledge. How come?

00:42:02--> 00:42:06

We're writing more reading more education, but less knowledge. Yes.

00:42:07--> 00:42:22

People are learning false framing of life of reality. We are brainwashed. That's what we get. And by the way, facts, don't create a wise man. Truth creates a wise person.

00:42:25--> 00:42:40

So a lot of the knowledge is actually that we are learning and the way it's being framed for us is very detrimental. very determined, which is why people say, you know, families are it's very hard to you know, have a healthy marriage. Yes, because our people are pitted against each other.

00:42:41--> 00:42:58

The wife says the husband is the enemy and the enemy is the man sees the wife as the enemy. No one wins and everyone is brainwashed from a young age into this kind of doctrine that is destroying their life and then women complain about men and men complain about men about women was the point

00:43:00--> 00:43:03

families eroded kids are paying the price

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

boys education

00:43:11--> 00:43:13

so so again,

00:43:14--> 00:43:30

it's not a it's not intended let's put it this way. It's not in terms of quantity. In terms of quality, we have a lot of junk knowledge that is you know, that our heads are filled up with that is poisoning our systems and we think that we know more than any any species on Earth

00:43:33--> 00:43:34

inshallah so

00:43:36--> 00:43:37

So what Allah subhanaw taala is saying

00:43:38--> 00:44:17

that look around, why don't they look around? What Why don't they see the skies, the mountains, the earth, and all of that. Look at this magnificent creation. If you are not already indoctrinated, it's going to really if you can free yourself and have an awakening and look at things afresh. They will go on to point you to Allah, they will point you to Allah the Prophet salaam, salaam, what did they do before revelation? He realized that worshiping idols doesn't make sense living such a lifestyle with a lot of moral violations doesn't make sense. Doesn't make sense. So he would, you know, get away from that contaminated environment and go on top of the mountain and just try to

00:44:17--> 00:44:35

think try to, you know, be in a in a more of a less contaminated environment. Hopefully, he would get more refreshed, fresh insights, and that's when Allah sent the revelation to him. And the Prophet Saddam was not the only one by the way, you could figure this out. So the Prophet SAW Selim actually spoke about one man

00:44:38--> 00:44:42

Z, I'm gonna I'm gonna fail. I'm gonna fail.

00:44:43--> 00:44:54

I see Amrozi it helped me out. Zaid, right, they have a normal banana Fein. He died before the prophets of sudden became prophet, but he was alive when the person was young.

00:44:55--> 00:45:00

So he would look at the Arabs. And he said to the elders of Croatia, Allah imam in coma had an

00:45:00--> 00:45:21

Allah miletti Ibrahim, Elana, he says none of you is upon the religion of the brain, the Quraysh Arabs in general claimed to be upon. None of you is upon that, but me, because I'm the closest I don't worship idols, Abraham must, could not have worshipped idols. And then he traveled, he went, and he mixed with the Christians with the Jews, and he realized this is all corrupted.

00:45:22--> 00:45:31

This could not be the religion of Allah. And some of the reasons mentioned that he would actually hold some dead and put his head on it. And he would say, Allah, He belongs to Anna

00:45:33--> 00:46:12

Keisha or Salah late. If I know how to pray to you, I could have done it. But that's all I know. So he would just very intuitive move, he would put his head on the sand, or on the back of his house, he would just bow down. That's all he could come up with as a fistula. So the filter is there. When you contemplate look around the fitrah feeds on this, there are messages, subtle messages that really awakened something in you. But if you are just busy validating yourself and regurgitating whatever civilization is telling you on theories, and you're learning ideologies and philosophies, and you can name what Descartes said and what Nietzsche said and what Al farabi said, and what had

00:46:12--> 00:46:55

been seen. I said and they said against this and said this, against that, and I know this and this theory and that theory, this is why this is one sophistication. What's the what's the outcome of this? Nil, zero, emptiness, confusion. To the point you're sophisticated, but what no wisdom, you haven't arrived at the truth. Because we're gonna be talking about the Allahu Anhu famous statement from him. He said Al Monaka cassava, he wrote that knowledge is a dot. But it was magnified because of ignorant people speaking. And there's another narration from Alina butala. Beginning he said low second time men. Yeah, lm nasaka Poultry laugh is an had people who were ignorant to didn't have

00:46:55--> 00:47:02

knowledge had they remained silent, don't talk, you don't know. There would have been almost no disagreement.

00:47:03--> 00:47:09

No debates, no issues. So where do debates come from people who are not ready speaking without knowledge.

00:47:11--> 00:47:17

So most of the polymax most of the debates most of the discussions is what

00:47:21--> 00:47:41

is vanity, talk for lights, nothing is nothing. Furniture. So the reality the truth, Allah put it in the Revelation and Allah put it also in the creation, we just need to approach it with fresh minds, humble hearts, and inquisitive nature, then you will find you'll find the answers of them.

00:47:42--> 00:47:53

The evidence is compelling. But again, when we are brainwashed, when we look at what Atheists say it sounds like compelling. Wow, are they making sense? They're not making sense.

00:47:54--> 00:48:11

But because you are functioning based on the same atheistic philosophy, and you've been, you know, drinking that and consuming that all your life, you're functioning based on down on the same dynamics. And that's why it makes sense to you. But if you are able to break from that, you'd see the foolishness of everything they say.

00:48:13--> 00:48:19

And the contradiction in almost every statement they make, and the inconsistency in anything they talk about

00:48:21--> 00:48:36

is so had we not been defeated. And the sense that we have absorbed all of and internalized all of this nonsense, it wouldn't make sense. And I really find it hard because I know sometimes I listen to speakers say you know, atheists they have some of the most compelling evidence.

00:48:38--> 00:48:59

No, unless you are functioning according to the same faulty mindset. Yes, then it sounds compelling. But if you go back to your football back to the basic logic, it is so powerful one of the great Imams it was really a nanny. I'm about to Anna from Yemen, and again, a great very great scholar. He wrote a book

00:49:02--> 00:49:06

I forgot the exact title, but in about 300 pages he speaks about

00:49:07--> 00:49:17

of Bali yet we'll add the little Qurani add emphasis that'll actually he says the Quranic logic is so compelling and powerful.

00:49:18--> 00:49:29

That it outposts, all of these philosophical logic, kinds of thinking, and rules. Why because these are sophisticated for nothing.

00:49:30--> 00:49:32

They're empty elaborations.

00:49:33--> 00:50:00

The basic logic for true logic is very straightforward and so powerful and so compelling. But the problem is when the minds are contaminated, we need to start repelling doubts and we start is just like, again, someone who eats a very unhealthy diet than they will need a lot of medication. Whereas if you just detoxify your body, you know you won't need all of these fancy foods and drugs and stuff like that eat base.

00:50:00--> 00:50:38

Six stuff in the very basic stuff, and that's the most healthy thing. And you will have more energy than all of these, you know, what personal trainers promote, and all this stuff and all that stuff is just because a layer after a layer, so you create so much corruption then, okay, let's create a profession to start to undo some of this, you know, damage. And that's how this today's world is built. But you know what, if you do away with all of these, a lot of these modern foods, processed foods and all that stuff, and you eat the basic stuff, the same people, as people in the past used to eat, you know what you don't you find that you actually don't need most of the time you won't

00:50:38--> 00:50:45

need you won't need to see a physician, you won't need a personal trainer, you won't need a lot of supplements, you will need a lot of this nonsense.

00:50:47--> 00:50:52

And that's parallel to what is happening with us intellectually and spiritually.

00:50:55--> 00:50:59

Okay, I was I was, I was hoping that today we could cover sort of

00:51:00--> 00:51:14

some some very small beginner, but it's gonna take us some time. So we'll stop here and take some questions if there is any. If there's no questions, we'll just read through shortall Allah and next week we can comment on it in Sharla

00:51:15--> 00:51:16


00:51:20--> 00:51:21


00:51:23--> 00:51:25

Hello says go to South Carolina

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


00:51:45--> 00:51:47

around the world, that time

00:51:50--> 00:51:53

pneumatic people was the normal thing to start with, they already know.

00:51:56--> 00:51:59

Nowadays, when you see this,

00:52:00--> 00:52:03

so when they people they already covered this

00:52:04--> 00:52:11

for me, until now, I see some real pictures out of staples.

00:52:12--> 00:52:18

Something is complete us all fire just hanging in the middle of

00:52:20--> 00:52:37

this panel. But everything is centered at the same time. These people want I'm just thinking, like helps people they aren't going that hard. At the same time they can see the tool because there is no no. If Allah doesn't want to see the truth, nobody

00:52:38--> 00:52:45

can help. So there is a book I was reading with my kids. The 100 influential

00:52:47--> 00:52:48

characters is to be

00:52:50--> 00:52:53

number one, which is everyone see it as a

00:52:56--> 00:52:59

confession from myself and Christian writer of SNAP

00:53:04--> 00:53:06

they are people even putting

00:53:08--> 00:53:13

the first place and keep saying that. He's the author of the book. I was reading

00:53:14--> 00:53:15

it the other way.

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

Which is why would he hit

00:53:19--> 00:53:21

number one center you do

00:53:24--> 00:53:27

that live again, when you see also the other practice

00:53:28--> 00:53:32

was number three. And there's nothing to talk about. There's nothing to say

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

he has a book

00:53:39--> 00:53:40

at the same time.

00:53:41--> 00:53:46

That was number 15 Did you see that he has a book. And they are pushing.

00:53:47--> 00:53:50

So as you can imagine, he they're sitting down with a book that

00:53:51--> 00:53:52

they consider it's like there's

00:53:54--> 00:53:55

something like

00:53:57--> 00:53:59

the credibility and stuff as you know

00:54:01--> 00:54:03

as history history,

00:54:04--> 00:54:14

nobody even talk about history in North America, like history is not one of those specialists because the only place to do whatever they want.

00:54:15--> 00:54:16

So again, I'm

00:54:18--> 00:54:19

referencing a lot of

00:54:20--> 00:54:32

at the same time, our scope of motto is whatever is easiest three history. This is the only continuation for this

00:54:35--> 00:54:36

the Western civilization

00:54:38--> 00:54:39

to move up and

00:54:40--> 00:54:42

move on to Ohio.

00:54:43--> 00:54:46

Nobody was saying that I was teaching my kids also.

00:54:49--> 00:54:49


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

the product is excellent his name

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

and then

00:54:55--> 00:54:57

why you have to know what his name

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


00:55:00--> 00:55:10

Okay, so we went to the library library, they have the Bible as the picture right Bible, and then in the Bible to cut from the beginning to come to that.

00:55:13--> 00:55:14


00:55:15--> 00:55:36

They mentioned he has only one son, that means it's half, and that the one who's trying to certify, and then he has to tie him I think screaming combined. So it's a common line all the time for lifting with their, their books going to see their point of view, will let you know the truth also really looks at the data we have

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

we have to bring this to an end, yes

00:55:50--> 00:55:51


00:55:53--> 00:55:54

nothing It has nothing to

00:55:55--> 00:55:58

show doesn't matter how far you can walk.

00:56:06--> 00:56:09

Okay, there were many topics there. But again,

00:56:10--> 00:56:30

what we said here about Philando Naila liabilities wholecut. Don't they look at the camels, how they were created the creation, this applies to everything and some, you know, I think as the system was picking something flashed in my mind, that people might think this only applies to natural things. What about airplanes, cars,

00:56:31--> 00:56:40

does not apply? It does apply? You know why? Because not like Allah is the creator of natural world. And then humans, our creator of that machinery

00:56:42--> 00:56:50

was the creator of everything. And Allah creates directly Some scholars say Allah creates directly and Allah created through His creation.

00:56:52--> 00:57:10

So many of the creation was actually put together Allah subhanaw taala created it through the angels, Allah can create it by what saying could be, just comes into existence. But Allah creates too many ways, ways for wisdoms that we know and wisdoms that we don't know, some of the wisdoms is that Allah Subhana Allah wants to

00:57:12--> 00:57:18

honor the angels with missions with tasks and things like that. And he wants us to reflect on certain things.

00:57:19--> 00:57:48

So the things that are made by humans, you think humans invented them out of nothing? So the beginning of invention is what first there is logic. There is thinking there is language, where is that from? That's from Allah, Allah, Adam Asma Akula, humans are not again, that's the issue. So even sometimes we Muslims fall into this thought that you know, we can, Allah created the natural world, but humans created civilization.

00:57:50--> 00:58:11

Be a big mistake. Big mistake is just we don't understand, again, we have been hijacked behind this kind of understanding which is faulty. Allah says in the Quran, when Allah halacha comb, one time alone, Allah created you, and what you do, Allah created you and created what you do.

00:58:12--> 00:58:22

So if you think about any kind of manufacturing, any civilization, any technology, what are the components in it? Well, thoughts,

00:58:23--> 00:58:38

science, system dynamics, right? Education, then application, putting that into physical form, then putting that to use to respond to certain life needs. All of that is the creation of Allah.

00:58:39--> 00:58:51

All of that is the creation of Allah. And people say no creative thinking, like something that popped up in my head, like I'm the creator of that thought, no, where did this thought come from? You'll find it in a low homophobe.

00:58:53--> 00:59:02

Allah wrote it down a ladder, but it's going to pop up in your head, or is it going to come from nothing? No, it's inspired in your mind, whether you're Muslim or non Muslim.

00:59:06--> 00:59:25

So that's a big, common misunderstanding. And it's important for us to, to really clarify it. That you know, what humans do is not an invention of humans, we borrow these words we say we creativity, like we create it, you don't create it. It gets thrown into your consciousness.

00:59:26--> 00:59:32

And then different elements come together all of them are the creation of Allah and the what brings them together is the creation of Allah.

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

And that's it. So Allah uses you as a tool. Allah uses you as a tool to bring this technology to humans. for certain reasons that Allah or Muslims Allah knows. So simple as that. Because when you're when you think when people have this very subtle assumption that Allah created the natural world, that's what we can. What contemplate, but again, like even if you compare the natural world to the technology of that humans managed to reach with

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

Allah provided them with no again, there's no comparison. But it's more compelling because we live close to it. And it's magnified in our times. So anything in the creation, you look around look at when you see something very sophisticated technology Subhan Allah who created the mind and inspired it to do something like that?

01:00:21--> 01:00:22

That's the reality of it.

01:00:23--> 01:00:25

Okay, more questions?

01:00:40--> 01:00:56

So let's, you know what, I don't think I have an answer, but I think the answer is in the question. So you asked how do Muslims will go through the Western system of education? How can they protect themselves from the issues that are in it?

01:01:00--> 01:01:03

How do you go to a warzone and expect to come out a life?

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

Saving chances?

01:01:07--> 01:01:13

Same chances, can you come out of life? Probably? Am I me? There is a probability

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

will you come out? traumatized? Most likely?

01:01:21--> 01:01:30

Will you Will someone love you? Will someone? Will the person come out in a coffin? Most likely? Most probably?

01:01:32--> 01:01:33

That's the answer.

01:01:36--> 01:01:40

The question is, do I want to go into a war zone or not? Is it worth it all?

01:01:42--> 01:01:44

I know is as as

01:01:46--> 01:01:52

as much as this is very likely to upset many people, but let it be, then it'd be

01:01:55--> 01:02:09

you know, stuff that goes into your mind goes through your ears, goes right into your heart creates your worldview creates helps create the values that you live by the criteria that you live by.

01:02:10--> 01:02:13

And the environment shapes humans beyond any other factor.

01:02:17--> 01:02:25

And then you're not sending an educated, intellectually, immune person who are you sending?

01:02:26--> 01:02:27

Who are using

01:02:29--> 01:02:30

a clean slate.

01:02:31--> 01:02:33

Right? A clean slate.

01:02:35--> 01:02:36

That is impressionable.

01:02:38--> 01:02:39

Whatever you put,

01:02:40--> 01:02:45

it takes it absorbs it. What are the chances? That's what we're talking about?

01:02:46--> 01:02:55

It's like again, wading through a swamp, or a pool of mud. And you have this piece of white cloth.

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

Very clean.

01:02:59--> 01:03:05

And you're wading through the swamp. What's the chances you're going to come out with a clean piece of cloth?

01:03:09--> 01:03:09

That's my answer.

01:03:11--> 01:03:13

That's all I can say. Like other questions

01:03:15--> 01:03:15

from the

01:03:22--> 01:03:24

how do we distinguish between what?

01:03:33--> 01:03:42

You mean Islamic knowledge? How do you distinguish between what's good and what's bad? When it comes to learning Islam? You mean the content that's out there? What's a big challenge?

01:03:44--> 01:03:52

It's a big challenge. So what I would say it's good knowledge is taken from so the first important thing is your intention.

01:03:54--> 01:04:11

What really, really people, you know, people underestimate the power of intention. People think, Oh, my intention is good. But now my strategy might have issues. But the thing is, your strategy is informed so much by your intention. Because if someone has this

01:04:12--> 01:04:17

grandiosity about them, they want to become this notable, this

01:04:18--> 01:04:20

well known scholar,

01:04:21--> 01:04:24

I want to become one of the best scholars in Islam. Is that a good intention?

01:04:25--> 01:04:26

To start with no.

01:04:28--> 01:04:29

To start with, no.

01:04:31--> 01:04:51

So where is this person going to go most likely fields of knowledge and questions that will bring more attention, right, more controversial issues? Would he gravitate to people who would give him knowledge that will bring him closer to Allah if he has to choose there is knowledge that brings you closer to Allah, but there is knowledge that makes you more argumentative,

01:04:53--> 01:04:58

more convincing, more appealing? Where's this person going to go?

01:05:00--> 01:05:38

So this is how your intention actually informs your strategy and the path you're going to take. So that's when when the prophets of salaam said actions are by their intentions, not only the reward is by intention, your whole action is shaped by your intention, your intention is going to play out in almost every decision you make on this path. So it's not a joke. So this is why if intention is not right, and most likely what follows is going to be very problematic. That's number one. So what is the intention? Intention is you need to harness it, people think, Oh, let me work out my intention. Let me think my intention. That's, that's a modern disease, by the way, it was it was there all the

01:05:38--> 01:05:48

time, but it has reached it's, it's become an endemic everywhere. But we think, let me think of my intention. What are you talking about intention is not a thought.

01:05:50--> 01:05:59

Intention is what your heart loves what your heart desires and sees values in and thus it gravitates in that direction. That's what intention is.

01:06:00--> 01:06:09

One of the people who really spoke the best about this was rozalia Rahim, Allah Allah, he actually says, some people think, Oh, I'm going to be,

01:06:10--> 01:06:15

again, I'm going to get married to have children, who would be good Muslims and I will get reward.

01:06:17--> 01:06:43

He says, have been the mosquito and he says, This mosquito thinks that he is having good intention. He says, to have a hadith on us, this is just some inner dialogue you have a visa has, the intention is what you heard travels to where your heart is attracted to. Right? So this should be the beginning is why am I seeking knowledge, what really propels me to seek knowledge? What is the value that I see in knowledge?

01:06:45--> 01:06:46


01:06:47--> 01:07:03

loving Allah, knowing more about Allah getting closer to Allah making it to Paradise, regardless where the path takes me, regardless what what the right get famous or not, whether I become successful or not, whether I write books or don't write books,

01:07:04--> 01:07:17

regardless, they may be only if the intention is good, then a person should go. And you know, once you, once you start with a good intention, you start to tell who to listen to, and who not to listen to.

01:07:18--> 01:07:23

Because the hearts have the heart consents, you know,

01:07:24--> 01:07:26

I think it was even Ambassador we Allah language in

01:07:29--> 01:07:36

the heart can smell other hearts. And it can tell a good heart from a bad heart. And then it would go for a good heart.

01:07:37--> 01:07:38


01:07:41--> 01:07:55

So and when you say the nasolabial Mustafi, you're making dua, kindness to the straight path, this is the path of knowledge. So if someone makes it sincerely, really says this, from the bottom of their heart, you will find that

01:07:57--> 01:08:40

if everyday, they're saying that at least 17 times sincerely, it's very unlikely that Allah will let them go straight, even if they go astray, they would have an excuse. And it would not be a big issue, generally speaking. So I would say, Don't get involved with contemporary issues. Really, a lot of them are hot. And there's a debate going around them for very little use. The scope of almost the average individual does not engage with the big issues here. Big issues have always been from the time of the prophets of Salaam for people who are way advanced in their maturity in their career, in their knowledge, in even in their influence to the person who doesn't have influence, why

01:08:40--> 01:08:44

do they get into issues where they can't even have any influence?

01:08:45--> 01:08:45


01:08:47--> 01:08:54

So then, you know, a lot of clarity will come from good intention, and then how to tell what's good and what's bad. I would say go to the scholars that are,

01:08:56--> 01:09:10

you know, have always been accepted in the Islamic history, you will learn from the earliest colors way more than you learn from contemporary scholars way and always go for a person of knowledge of their contemporary when they have good.

01:09:11--> 01:09:16

Good and obviously make sure that they are upon the Quran and the Sunnah. And

01:09:17--> 01:09:27

obviously people who would follow the elder generations, but again, you know that some people make that claim but they are not upon that. So be careful. Be careful.

01:09:30--> 01:09:59

Yeah, so that's what I will. That's what I would say the person always chooses the best based on good intention, they will be able to navigate this very, very tricky area, but I would say honestly, most of what is being discussed more of these popular topics that are discussed on social media will not benefit you when it comes to your relationship to Allah subhanaw taala really, people just get excited about them. It's more of a trend and it catches on and people get excited and people we are for the sake of Allah when I defend the religion. I want to defend the truth display

01:10:00--> 01:10:24

And as against this religion, this person will sell out, and so on and so forth. And Allah, He, most of the time beyond that, or underneath that there is personal issues grudges, coveting, hate, and so on and so forth. But humans, you know, humans are mysteries to themselves, if someone has not really worked on purifying themselves, you know, shaytan is using them, I have no clue. They think they are sincere, but they're not.

01:10:25--> 01:11:09

Yeah, so that's what I would advise myself. And that's really what I choose for myself. And that's what I would advise everyone else. Yeah, we have classical scholars, and another well known from the time of the companions that have been in before humans, you know, these scholars, follow them, take from them, learn from them, most of what you need on the path to Allah, you know, they've spoken about it and so much eloquence and much more meaning than contemporary ones, contemporary ones just, you know, sound a little more relevant and relatable, just because they speak contemporary language, but they just make most of the time they make the path longer. And that depends on why you're

01:11:09--> 01:11:48

seeking Islamic knowledge is it just because you want to learn a little bit or you want to become a student of knowledge? That also there's two different paths here? Someone wants someone to remind them of Allah subhanaw taala and the general reminder in general should be okay. Yeah, what I would say the best use of social media is people who just remind you of Allah and make you remember Allah fear death get prepared for the era. A lot of them that's what they say if that's what you can take from them tea from and that's good because a good reminder hamdulillah Yeah, but real knowledge now like in terms of deep specialized, no, go to books out if someone is serious about study England,

01:11:48--> 01:12:02

the Arabic language, seek knowledge in Arabic language is impossible. No, there are many people who even came to Islam a later stage in their life, they learned the Arabic language and they became scholars and became very advanced people of knowledge.

01:12:06--> 01:12:08

Okay, one question.

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

And don't forget Yes.

01:12:26--> 01:12:27

And then what?

01:12:28--> 01:12:30

Good good

01:12:48--> 01:12:51

okay, this is a good question, but a very big question.

01:12:53--> 01:13:03

So this is this says people who don't choose Islam or choose not to be Muslim, but they are good people in terms of their character, right? How they treat others.

01:13:04--> 01:13:07

What's going to happen to these people? So

01:13:08--> 01:13:14

there's a few things that we have to understand. Allah says, Yeah, Halima yesha, illegal Maya shot away, do you mean

01:13:15--> 01:13:59

we have to understand that when Allah says that he guides who he wills and misguides, who he wills, that Allah's Will is not detached from his wisdom and justice. So when you say Allah was not like, I will, like I have favoritism. I lean more towards this, so I'm gonna let them in. I don't like this person, I don't want them and that's not Allah, that's us. So we want to be careful that when we apply the attribute of the will Yasha mushiya, to Allah subhanaw taala that it is bound by His mercy, His wisdom, his knowledge and his justice. So we know that Allah does not guide Allah does not miss guide someone who deserves guidance, impossible.

01:14:00--> 01:14:16

Cool. And Allah does not guide someone who does not deserve guidance. What does it mean to deserve this is something Allah kept to himself? There's something deep in the heart. Allah knows. Allah didn't tell us everything. Allah says Allah you hate on me shame on me. He loved me, Marcia.

01:14:17--> 01:14:22

They don't encompass the knowledge of ALLAH he only gives Him what He wills. So Allah gives us something.

01:14:24--> 01:14:38

Now good people, what do we mean by good people? So we have good and we have people? What does good mean? One of the biggest misconceptions about today is the word good and evil. Because I'll tell you what.

01:14:40--> 01:14:47

People who say for people, for people with good is what's advantages. What's pleasant.

01:14:48--> 01:14:55

What's evil. Most people most common use is what's painful, either physically or emotionally.

01:14:56--> 01:14:59

But that's not the definition of good and evil, good and evil are more

01:15:00--> 01:15:06

Role judgments. So what is good? What is evil?

01:15:07--> 01:15:24

Because sometimes there is pain, or it doesn't is not always evil, there is good pain. And sometimes there is pleasure, but it's evil pleasure. So what is it so good and evil, I'm not a matter of taste. Now good and evil are not also

01:15:27--> 01:15:39

a unified entity. So every person could possess some good and some evil, right? So when you said, these are good people, you made a judgment on these people, that they are good.

01:15:42--> 01:15:44

That would be a loose judgment.

01:15:46--> 01:15:48

That would be a loose judgment, because

01:15:50--> 01:16:13

you were talking about how they treat other people, right. So that's one aspect of their life, how they treat other people, that's one, number two, we are talking about their visible behavior, you don't know them in their personal life, you don't know them, you haven't tested them. There are people that they seem to be nice, but when they are tested,

01:16:14--> 01:16:37

you know, they would make the unthinkable. You know, I am not a good follower of of TV and media, but there was a sister, a few a few years here and a boy, she she mentioned something that was on Netflix, and I don't promote Netflix, but at that time, there was a I think it was a UK series that where they got people to,

01:16:38--> 01:16:43

I don't know, they set them up, they created a setup where there was a wedding or there was something than there was a dead body.

01:16:45--> 01:16:54

And it wasn't really a dead body or something like that. And then they asked someone to help help them hide this body and put it somewhere, then they took it to the,

01:16:55--> 01:17:09

to the roof of a high building. And they said, You know, I don't want to be caught, you know what? I don't know. But eventually what happened is that the participant was asked to help this person who was trying to either I don't know,

01:17:11--> 01:17:13

either hide the body, or

01:17:14--> 01:17:26

I don't know, it was an old man who was creating problems and trouble and they would be, you know, I don't know, things could unfold in very bad ways, too, and the person was put on the, on the edge of,

01:17:27--> 01:17:34

of the roof. And then the person was convinced to kick them off the edge so that they fall and die.

01:17:36--> 01:17:54

And most of the participants actually did that. And they had a net underneath, and it would carry the person, but just saying, these seem to be very decent people. But when when they were put in a scenario, where they were trying to help someone and involved it involved a murder, they actually committed the murder.

01:17:55--> 01:18:32

So we apply the word good, very generously and use and loosely and that's very problematic. Before even we identify what is good and what's evil, and this is something we will have to visit later on. Because you know what good if you think about good, really what it means. It's good means what Allah loves, there's no other definition. Otherwise, we're going to have quite a subjective definition of what's good and evil. And there will be no consensus, there will be no agreement, there will be no absolute morality. What's good for you is evil for someone else, what's evil with someone else who's good for you? What's the point?

01:18:33--> 01:18:53

Truly, if you dig deep down, and I'm just squeezing a huge many steps of rationalization, but you get back, you get down to the point that no, there's no good except what Allah loves and please pleased with. And there is no evil except to what is in opposition to what contradicts what Allah loves, and what he's pleased with.

01:18:54--> 01:19:32

So when we say these aren't good people, we're just talking about a small aspect of their life, the most visible aspect of their life. And we haven't looked into their hearts. And we haven't looked into other possibilities. And this is why actually a lot of psychologists that would warn before you describe yourself or you think even that you are good. If you haven't been tested by life, don't don't trust that you actually good. And that's what they call the shadow you have to come to really figure out your shadow to understand it, internalize it and think they have a lot of words about that. So the thing is, we don't apply the we don't define good and evil, right? Then we make a very

01:19:32--> 01:19:56

subjective and limited judgment or generous judgment on a very limited and subjective view into someone's life. When there is what do we can't we don't have a right to make this judgment. You see, and that's where we get get lost number two. Number three is we don't know what is happening in the heart of this person over this person. Have they really come face to face with the reality of Islam to make a good judgment? We don't know.

01:19:57--> 01:19:59

So for us, there is a common dunya there was

01:20:00--> 01:20:03

ruling in this dunya This is a Kaffir Munich is non Muslim.

01:20:05--> 01:20:09

Can we make sure that this person will go to the hellfire? No,

01:20:10--> 01:20:47

we can't make sure we can make sure this is why in the kingdom of Arcadia you will find, for example, that they will say well, with Ana de Maria had in region, nothing, Juana. And we do not confirm Jana finding one and hellfire for anyone you don't know, because some people will be from Alexandria, the province I mentioned, there are people who will be in a gap between messengers. The truth is never reached them. These people will have a test on the Day of Judgment. Children who died early and one opinion that they will have a test on the Day of Judgment. You see, so we don't know. We don't know about the reality of their experience. Imam Al Ghazali had the strongest argument for,

01:20:47--> 01:21:24

again, the people that they don't have, but he was criticized by the scholars that he took that a little too far. Okay, so this is called the liberal global journal, excused by ignorance, no access to the truth and access to get somebody says, Oh, Islam is all over the place. No, but there's a lot of misinformation so we don't know. So again, it's not all business to say this person is going to the hellfire. unless Allah tells us all the prophecies and and tells us specifically about this person. That's a separate issue. But today, we don't have access. So we we don't make a judgement. It's none of our business. Our business is to save ourselves. That's it. As to good and evil, we

01:21:24--> 01:21:44

have to be very careful. What do we mean by good by evil? Really what good is is what Allah loves, or Islam calls us, even if we fail to understand how understand is good, like the punishments in Islam. A modern mind like ours, even Muslims still don't know how to digest that. But there's good in it.

01:21:46--> 01:22:00

But when we hear we say, but I just don't understand. I don't know how to work it out. Why? Because I've been fed so much stuff that I am building on a corrupted system to make a good judgment. How come you see?

01:22:01--> 01:22:16

So it's multi dimensional, but this should give you some of the main elements to navigate this issue. Insha Allah to Allah Zakon lockira and challah next week we will deal with Siewert Allah, Allah Tala also lots of Damascena earlier he was trying to be a drain
