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

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah.

00:00:07--> 00:00:09

Continuing in universal principles, this is week two.

00:00:10--> 00:00:35

And last week, we gave the important principle which we're going to continue this week, big words come from small words, right? If you understand that concept, you've understood almost 90% of the Arabic vocab. All you have to do is identify the small word within that big word. And once you do that, you'll be able to get the meaning out of it. So we're going to do a quick revision of last lesson.

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

And then we'll continue with today's lesson. And that was the same principle. big words come from small words, and this is the last week we'll spend on it next week is very important. Try not to miss next week, we're going to look at the difference between verbs and nouns, verbs and names.

00:00:56--> 00:01:20

Now, I said I'm going to teach you concepts over terminology for now, because that's really the most important thing as opposed to teaching you all of the Arabic transpiler heart in terms that usually confuses people. And that turns people away. Last week, we started this principle big words come from small words. And we gave the example of albia. That's the big word and it came from many small words. What were some of the small words?

00:01:22--> 00:01:24

We can look through your notes, no problem.

00:01:25--> 00:01:27

I want you to give me the answers.

00:01:28--> 00:01:29

audibel What's that mean?

00:01:31--> 00:01:36

Correct. arriba means kassala. To be in abundance, Hyderabad,

00:01:38--> 00:01:46

Jani gusto lottomatica when the well became arriba, right. In other words, it increased in water and other meaning.

00:01:47--> 00:01:48

Our IP good What's our IP?

00:01:49--> 00:02:07

period? purely because the Arabic language is a pure language. It's pure, it's thought had right? It's pure. So if you were to say, Matt on it, that's pure water. It's not like other languages that are combination of so many different accents, stylings and other languages rather, it's pure and of itself good. Another meaning?

00:02:08--> 00:02:10

arroba good. What is alabamian?

00:02:12--> 00:02:24

eloquence out of that Roger Jani fossa. Asked behalf of si hon. So if you said Alba, Mohammed he became eloquent because the Arabic language is eloquent. The other out of

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

out of arroba

00:02:27--> 00:03:12

to show love automatic Jani habit Eliza arroba the woman showed love to her husband, and that's what Allah used that word in social work. They are for Jana Hoon Baqarah next is Robin at Robin, the women of Jenna robe. Jani they are lovable, loving, etc. And they are loved also by their husbands. So in general, don't worry if you're not really fond of your husband now you're going to be fun to him in the hereafter inshallah, but don't worry, in general, you'll be happy, you'll be happy. Good and we gave our rubber also what's our rubber? We said to have the best to educate Right Honourable Well, it our arabelle up Ebner who the father corrected his son he taught him. He educated him

00:03:12--> 00:03:20

corrected his mistakes, because Arabic does the correction. It teaches you morals and values what was the two examples we gave on how word situ Merman is?

00:03:23--> 00:03:31

Correct? Correct. The word for toiler in Arabic is Holla Holla. And that came from which Arabic word

00:03:33--> 00:03:46

holla and holla right good and that means to be alone. So it teaches you when you go to the toilet you should be alone. It's secluded. You don't have people there with you. Right That's considered I in Arabic Excel rude. And another word we gave

00:03:48--> 00:04:15

your house? Yes, your house is called bait. Why came from batter batter means to spend the night. So if I said better, or more fill Masjid, or more spent the night in the masjid. So it teaches you where to spend the night in your bait in your home, not out late at night in the streets. So it's a panel of the Arabic language teachers your manners, just the words in of themselves teach you manners. So we gave a lot of those meanings. All right, we said purity.

00:04:16--> 00:04:17

We said

00:04:18--> 00:04:52

clarify clarity eloquence to educate, what is it? affection, love all of those found in Arabic And there's many more I just summarized it in six, six points. So as for that same principle, big words come from swans, we're gonna give now words that are more relevant to us as Muslims in our daily life and read the Quran and the Sunnah that we constantly read he and speak about. So I'm going to give you around eight nine words because of the time not going to go more than that, that we constantly hear and read throughout the Quran and the Sunnah. The first word is Islam.

00:04:56--> 00:04:57

That's the first one we're going to look at

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

this big word

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

It's not really big, but it came from a smaller word.

00:05:04--> 00:05:08

All Arabic words you find 90% of the time,

00:05:09--> 00:05:33

come from a three letter GIF, which is a three letter root word 90% of all Arabic words come from a three letter gid. And I'm going to give you some activities today where you're going to identify the three letters. And once you identify the three letters, and you look it up in a dictionary, or you may already know the meaning, then we'll actually help you understand that bigger word.

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

And then 8% of the time

00:05:39--> 00:05:44

it's Have a guess how many letters for a four letter word.

00:05:47--> 00:06:27

And then 2% of the time you have five limited, very rare. I haven't personally seen a six letter word where a word on its any the root and of itself, it's been broken down or can be broken down more than six. I haven't personally seen one, there probably is. But if it is the case, extremely rare, extremely rare. But most of the time, you'll find as we're going to see today, all words that you know, or that you know in Arabic, have a three letter G 90% of the time, whether it's the word like Islam, or Eman, or sola, or Moana, or Cofer or all these words, he comes commonly here, which we're going to take today come from a three languages. So what we said sisters,

00:06:28--> 00:06:43

that were continuing on the principle of last week, where big words come from small words. So we're going to take eight or nine common words depending on time eight or nine common words we commonly read in the Quran and the Sunnah. At first, we're going to understand them from their three languages.

00:06:44--> 00:06:46

So the word Islam came from which word?

00:06:49--> 00:06:54

Most Muslim came from this fall. We said try to break it down to three. That's your first choice.

00:06:55--> 00:06:57

Salima good? Salima

00:06:58--> 00:07:10

sir. Lee, Matt, how do you identify the three languages most of the time, nine times out of 10 it does not include the lf the well or the okay.

00:07:15--> 00:07:34

While I live here, so if you eliminate those, you're going to most of the time find your three legends. And you're going to see shortly. Okay, so the lf you can eliminate it right alifair although the terms are different, you're going to see it's going to come into play in a shot in shortly. So remove the Elif seen lamb meme salema.

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

So Islam came from

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

Salima, what does Salima mean?

00:07:45--> 00:07:47

Correct peace and safety?

00:07:53--> 00:08:25

This is based on a hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked who are the best of Muslims? Are you Muslim enough? Who's the best jasola Did he say the one who practically emulate every single night? Did he say the one who first every second day? The one who gives all of their wealth in charity? No, he said man salema men Selim and Muslim on me Lisa Neha de the best Muslim is the one who the other Muslims are at safety. They are safe from their tongue in the hands. That's the best Muslim. So that word Selim is using the Hadith.

00:08:26--> 00:08:54

And the prophets and Wallace Allah Most eloquently started with the tongue. Men Selim and Muslim women listen he, right the tongue. Why? Because most of the harm in our communities start with the tongue, you know, find punch ups, right between this semester, and that mark isn't as usually people talking about others insulting them, mocking them, backbiting them? So the word spam came from Salima. So what's the connection between Islam and patient safety? What's the connection? You're always going to see a connection between the linguistic meaning and the Islamic meaning?

00:08:58--> 00:09:31

Correct. When you enter into Islam, you're at peace. You are safe in this world before the hereafter. Firstly, you have that inner peace or that inner peace and that's why the highest rates of suicide are with non Muslim countries, the Western world even the non Muslims are saying this check out World Health Organization statistics they'll tell you so you have inner peace now and you'll be safe from the punishment in the hereafter so Pinilla but the word Islam also came from a four letter route and that is as Lama

00:09:39--> 00:09:59

and as Lama means, we will notice to submit and surrender correct. Is that in the crime Sure is. A lot talked about to great prophets, Ibrahim and his smile. Fellow Amma, as Lama when they both submitted surrendered, they surrendered to the command

00:10:00--> 00:10:47

What command was that? commanded to sacrifice his son? You have children. Imagine you were commanded by Allah to sacrifice slaughter your own child. panela that is tough. But Samia Anna will altana not semia Anna Selena they said we hear when we obey and not we hear and we delay. You want it your love Your love. You're the master and the slave. What you want you get you say jump I say how high? You want it. It's gonna get done. They both submitted and his son submitted also as lemma the Elif, it could LFO listening. If you want to add a jewel, right second person to the verb. Just take the pasterns verb Elif. So I Kela he ate Kayla. They both ate Schrieber. He drank Sherry bath. They both

00:10:47--> 00:11:07

drink Julissa, he's jealous? They both right. So as lemma they both submitted, so his son submitted also. Not that please get me another federal from another profit. Right? I don't like this cutting my neck business. So they both submitted to Pamela. And then what does he do? What tell who? Lil jabeen How did they put him put him down?

00:11:09--> 00:11:48

face down on the jabeen the Jabba This is called jumper jabeen. So Java is the forward to the forefront, right? He put him face down Why would you put him face down? So he couldn't see the side look in his son's eyes as he's about to sacrifice him? Why perhaps looking at that sad look, perhaps looking at those eyes would perhaps turn him away and prevent him from fulfilling the command of Allah. He doesn't want that. He doesn't want anything to get in his way from him and his submission. To Parnell that's a very valuable lesson for you and I look into your life and if there's something that's getting in the way between you and your submission you and your Islam do what Abraham Allison

00:11:48--> 00:12:08

did turn it down, put it away Don't even look at it remove it from your life or modify it. It could be bad friends could be bad company could be the internet could be Facebook or Twitter. It could be movies or music whatever is getting in the way of your Islam categorical that's what everybody malissa them right so he didn't put him face up right hi that

00:12:10--> 00:12:17

I that by that I gonna slaughter him No No he didn't do that but others and he's valuable lessons even same with animals we made sure that the

00:12:18--> 00:12:37

panel there you go. That's Islam for you what hamdulillah so when you submit you get peace and safety so as you can see those big words and Muslim and Islam okay from us llama and Salima? Good So continuing in the principle that we took last week big words come from smaller the second word that we commonly he is a man

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

so as we said as students of knowledge you want to understand what these words really mean not just going to the translation what's a man translated to usually

00:12:47--> 00:12:48

faith creed right

00:12:49--> 00:12:50


00:12:53--> 00:12:59

now we said usually what letters don't you look for if you're trying to track down the three digit

00:13:01--> 00:13:04

well aleafia Okay, so if you remove the

00:13:06--> 00:13:08

and the lF What are you gonna be left with?

00:13:09--> 00:13:11

We said three the Hamza

00:13:14--> 00:13:22

then meme known good um right so he man came from M

00:13:25--> 00:13:35

good so I'm gonna give you this opportunity to try and do it yourself. So later on holos as the saying goes, give him an official today and teach him how to fish it for a lifetime.

00:13:36--> 00:13:37

And what I mean

00:13:38--> 00:13:41

protection also safety

00:13:43--> 00:13:51

wise, man or woman Whoa, yes. So today's Allah protected them against feed kept them safe and

00:13:52--> 00:13:53

meat protection.

00:13:54--> 00:13:55

What's an Amana?

00:13:56--> 00:14:04

A trust why when you have it, you protect it. You look after it. You see. Amina also

00:14:05--> 00:14:09

Amina also all of those words came from M and M and

00:14:10--> 00:14:22

so that i mean is a trustworthy that Amina is a trustworthy person, because if you keep something with them, they're not gonna go spend it. They're not going to destroy they're going to look after the unprotected. So what's the connection between a man and protection?

00:14:23--> 00:14:24

Same thing.

00:14:25--> 00:14:54

If you enter into a man you have a lower protect you in this world from punishment and in the hereafter from entering the fire. Another it's similar to Islam. So panel Islam and Eman actually have the same meaning in terms of their linguistic route, will hamdulillah and you'll see it's connected to the name of Allah also. A lot one of the meanings is that he protects you. That's one of the meanings of Allah linguistically. Allah protects you. We're going to take that next. Good number three, another common term.

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


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

So what letter we're moving from solid to find the three letter

00:15:05--> 00:15:10

correct. So in this one so now what are we going to remove the elephant? So what are we left with?

00:15:11--> 00:15:16

So, lamb and Mr. Bhutto right Scylla

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

Scylla so the word solar came from Silla

00:15:23--> 00:15:31

interesting well Scylla correct Silla Tara him connection. So what's the connection between Scylla and solar?

00:15:32--> 00:15:37

When you pray you connect with Allah. It connects upon Allah beautiful.

00:15:39--> 00:15:51

Good and that's what this is supposed to do. give you understanding. Now you appreciate these words. See Arabic isn't just random terms. It's made out let's call it Sala. Okay. Oh, let's just call it this. This is color that no, rather there's great wisdom behind them.

00:15:55--> 00:15:56

That's better.

00:16:07--> 00:16:22

So the solar is your connection with Allah. So those who don't pray, guess what? They've broken that connection. Why would you break your connection between you and your master you and your Lord, you and your Creator maintain a sustainer like I don't need him anymore. I was a biller.

00:16:23--> 00:17:01

Those who don't pray, should pray. Those who do pray should pray on time. And those are proud time should pray this sooner is always a way to improve. There's always a way to improve. So when you pray you connect with Allah the ultimate speeder no internet or Wi Fi necessary. No appointment required either. You know if you want to make a big shot in the community, with its prime minister, President, a big scholar shave, in fact a doctor or a dentist, you need an appointment also, you need a book. And even when you get to that appointment, guess what? You still have to wait. That's right. You still have to wait. But guess what, with an appointment or with a larger journal, you

00:17:01--> 00:17:42

want to connect no appointment required no appointment necessary. You just pray you connect immediately with a loss upon Allah. Amazing ministering between you know no one you and Allah direct. And that's why the word solid linguistically also means that this is in the Quran masala Allah him meaning make dua for them. You're a sola. So the word Salah linguistically means you connect with Allah Emily. So even if you say, oh, how can I connect if I have my time with a month? Right, my monthly is my cycle. Well, there's there are. So the word sila linguistically means Doha. So if you want to connect with Allah, guess what? There's a number there's a number 24434244445 So

00:17:42--> 00:17:46

three from every profession as a number. Tanga Tanga.

00:17:47--> 00:18:16

Okay, when I mentioned this at school, some of the kids that are less interesting that went and dialed it. Okay, actually, I dialed it. You know what I got disconnected, you can connect with Allah on a phone, right? Of course, it's a parable for the prey. So when you teach kids a lot of the time you have to come up with these interesting ways of teaching them and make it interesting. Otherwise they fall asleep right before your very eyes. Some of them sleep with their eyes open. You'll be surprised. So solar connects you with Allah Subhana Allah RG RG

00:18:19--> 00:18:20

four, another common term

00:18:22--> 00:18:31

found and caffeine. This looks like okay, you might want to write that. Or the other same thing.

00:18:32--> 00:18:33

We'll stick with caffeine.

00:18:41--> 00:18:46

Let me know if I'm going too fast or too slow. sometimes hard to judge teaching Arabic.

00:18:48--> 00:18:57

Okay, let's remove the Elif we said remove these letters to find your sister. No problem. Remove those letters. So if we're going to remove the Elif

00:18:59--> 00:19:00

gaff for

00:19:01--> 00:19:06

gaffar, right cafaro that's where the word gafford came from and confirm

00:19:09--> 00:19:19

cafaro the word gafurov linguistically means satara. cover to cover. Why? What's the connection between covering

00:19:20--> 00:19:34

the cover the truth? Exactly. They cover the blessings of Allah, they hide them, they conceal them, they deny them, they cover up the heart and the truth. Right That's good for let's go for so the one who does that is a cafe and that's why in Nakuru

00:19:35--> 00:19:41

the farmer was work the farmers were called Kufa. Why the farmers called kufr

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

they cover the seeds with the soil right they cultivate the earth and they cover right so they had the the alum inches the Kufa meaning linguistically. Now if your father's a farmer, don't call him a catfish, because then, okay, of course, you're going to take it the wrong way. You don't apply it linguistically. So here it's known as gafford in a lot, right. So

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

Be careful how you use it. So the word gafa literally means cetera

00:20:06--> 00:20:07

cetera to cover

00:20:09--> 00:20:25

in other Sitara kurtsyn right because it covers you. But like I said, Nina all big words come from someone with a Sitara came from satara. See Tara the curtain because it covers you those big words always come from small words. So what's he thought? It means a curtain because satellite covers you.

00:20:27--> 00:20:28

Another common term

00:20:33--> 00:20:40

since we're talking about Kufa when I flew over the mother*in, hypocrites, right? And it came from ninja

00:20:43--> 00:20:43


00:20:47--> 00:20:48

So in effect is hypocrisy.

00:20:49--> 00:21:05

So the one who is Mr. Neff has attributes of ninja. It's like the caffeine has attributes of coffee. So the word nifa is like the mustard, like coffee and shake and Eman and Islam right. So that word nifa literally means hypocrisy for those who didn't know.

00:21:08--> 00:21:09

So what are the three letters?

00:21:11--> 00:21:14

The known good, the fat and the path.

00:21:15--> 00:21:17

Norfolk, good Norfolk.

00:21:19--> 00:21:23

So the word nefab came from NASA.

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

Correct? a tunnel.

00:21:29--> 00:21:32

An ephah is also used as a verb to burrow into the earth.

00:21:33--> 00:22:08

Why? Because they scholars give the parable of rats just as rats into the tunnel when they're scared and they exit from somewhere else like was the mafia cone when they're afraid they enter from one door exit via another? Why? To protect themselves out of fee for themselves. And likewise rats. When they afraid? What do they do? They flee? They scurry into the drains or tunnels underground, they borrow right so that's where the word munafo came from. And nifa mahna mahna hoon. Right so like the rats, the scammy rats, they are so popular.

00:22:11--> 00:22:13

Let's go on to number six.

00:22:16--> 00:22:17

We use Baraka

00:22:20--> 00:22:21

when you ask Allah

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

bark Hello fig bark Hello Viki May Allah give you Baraka?

00:22:32--> 00:22:38

What are the three letters that this word came from? Have a guess. Good the bat remove the Elif

00:22:39--> 00:22:41

calf, Baraka

00:22:44--> 00:22:48

it's not Baraka Del Mar Bhutto, this is just the Baraka Baraka.

00:22:56--> 00:22:57

Now Baraka interesting

00:22:59--> 00:23:01

means to kneel.

00:23:03--> 00:23:27

Yeah, Baraka Taliban, the camel knelt down. Yeah, Baraka is to kneel simply what's the connection between Baraka Baraka, lofi, conteneo, right? My Allah kneel you down, doesn't mean that. So what's the kneeling got to do with us? Now, it was used specifically for the camel to Baraka and even the Abel is the camel so the camel now what type of animals are camels?

00:23:28--> 00:23:29

Are they friendly?

00:23:30--> 00:24:09

No, they're really stubborn, arrogant beasts. Right? extremely arrogant. You get too close. They'll spit on you. Yeah, I saw a video of brothers who were trying to sacrifice a camel. And of course it didn't wasn't too happy, right? No one's gonna be happy getting their throat sliced, so it wasn't happy. So what did it do? It clumped on his head literally took his head. And I picked them up and drop them in other skill sets the machines, right, you know, you get the toy, and it takes it and drops him as what it did to this guy. And if you find that on eBay and radio Facebook page, you go into the video section, you'll see it took the guy by the head, swallow probably half of his body. I

00:24:09--> 00:24:38

don't know how much it took, but it picked him up and just, you know, flinging monkey rag though. They're very arrogant beasts, very arrogant, hard to deal with. That's why camel herder has also become very arrogant. Because you are a product of your environment. The type of occupation you have, has a big effect on your personality. And that's where you find teachers, in general, male or female tend to have a more of a loving, you know, personality, right, a father figure motherly figure, right. Doctors tend to lose their handwriting skills.

00:24:39--> 00:25:00

People who deal with money machines all the time tend to have a very robotic mechanical lifestyle. But people who deal with politics become corrupt and deceptive. Right. So your occupation has an effect on your personality. So they're very arrogant. So when they kneel, the camels kneel. Are you getting them up? No way. Forget getting

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

them up. They're very stubborn. You can smack him hit him beat them, they're not going to get up for anyone very hard to get up very hard. So when it kneels down Guess what? It's gonna kneel for a long time. So when you say Barack Hello feek might Allah bless you in your wealth or in your health and your knowledge, you're saying my Allah keep it with you

00:25:21--> 00:25:40

for a very long time. And if sometimes people earn $1,000 and they lose it the next day they spend it all with it go Guess what, there's no Baraka it didn't last long did it? didn't last long. So that's one of the meanings of balika by see how you need to go a bit deeper, it means to kneel but it was used more for the camel because they stay down for a long time.

00:25:42--> 00:25:44

And it's connected to the word bitka.

00:25:47--> 00:25:52

What's a burka? Yeah, a pool. Now what's the difference between a pool and a puddle?

00:25:53--> 00:26:14

Correct. The pool has much more water abundant amount of water. So the pool Okay, Arabic bedika indicate abundance, abundant amount of water. So when you say May Allah give you Baraka? You're not just asking him to ask him what to keep it with him. But yes to give you an abundant mmm Allah bless it. increase it for you.

00:26:18--> 00:26:19


00:26:20--> 00:26:22

Another common phrase or word taqwa.

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

One of my favorite actually.

00:26:29--> 00:26:42

We hear this every Juma. Yeah, you have a nominal. Hola, taco taco taco. And what's it commonly translated to? fear of Allah, you're gonna say it's not fi. What's another translation?

00:26:43--> 00:26:51

piety, right, and there's another word for that. There's no beer and Sala and there's another word for that. So what is the Aqua

00:26:53--> 00:27:01

now I'm not going to get into the mechanics behind it where this word came from? It's quite difficult. So I'm just going to give you the root word which is require or work on.

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

The verb is Wacom.

00:27:07--> 00:27:07


00:27:11--> 00:27:15

and the must not which is the source what is required.

00:27:17--> 00:27:30

So you could say the word doc word came from worker or it came from require no problem. I will require is a shield a protective barrier. A protective barrier.

00:27:36--> 00:27:43

worker is a verb meaning to protect. Is this an operand? Sure is when you make a

00:27:44--> 00:28:07

banner ad in fiducia hacer una wafi harati hacer una Joaquin Joaquin ah but no protect us from the fire not make us piety from the firewood it makes it right so and also not fee which we're going to illustrate how not fee in a moment joaquina protect us from the fire when you make dice and walk in other but not

00:28:08--> 00:28:12

so what's the connection between protective barrier and

00:28:13--> 00:28:26

duck where in reality is to place a protective barrier between you and a lot of people punishment. And tegile were quiet and Bane a carabiner. That Bella that's what takeaways.

00:28:32--> 00:29:04

This is also in another area Allah says go and full circle mahalo comm now protect yourself and your families from the fire that now co worker at the fair, the command in Arabic who write to all of you protect yourself and your family doesn't just mean fee, which we're going to illustrate in a moment. But how do you protect yourself? How do you place this barrier? It's not by using bricks and mortar and how do you protect yourself from the fire? What's his barrier?

00:29:05--> 00:29:09

Correct. There's two ways. Number one you fulfill

00:29:10--> 00:29:11


00:29:14--> 00:29:15

Second way

00:29:16--> 00:29:20

that's fulfilling obligations. Keep away avoid prohibitions, correct?

00:29:23--> 00:29:32

Yeah, pretty much. That's a summary of taqwa. You build this protective barrier via fulfilling the obligations keeping away from the prohibitions.

00:29:33--> 00:29:34


00:29:35--> 00:29:54

Correct? That's right. So a person can pray fast perform hajj, but they're not keeping away from the harm. So both are necessary you do that and surely you'll be protected from the fire. Now, I also want to add how this is not fee and I'm gonna illustrate that. Why is it not fee what's the Arabic word for fee and hope right hope.

00:29:57--> 00:29:58

Hope is fee

00:30:01--> 00:30:05

Now we said, duck work. You want to protect yourself from the fire, let's just say,

00:30:06--> 00:30:07

a fire

00:30:09--> 00:30:19

into this room. My other law. Let's just say Mia was on fire. Well ask Allah to protect us. Let's just say, what are you going to do to protect yourself?

00:30:20--> 00:30:23

Run or flee or

00:30:25--> 00:31:03

put it out, you're going to do something true. You're going to do something. Or you're going to sit there saying, I feel the fire. I feel the fire. I feel the fire. No, that's not going to do anything. You're going to do something. In other words, action. So taqwa it is fee. It is an emotion, but it's coupled with action to taqwa and reality is fee plus action. We said what are the actions, fulfill obligations avoid prohibitions. So it's actually fee plus fee plus. So that's how you could summarize taqwa is fee plus action, emotion plus action that drives you to do something.

00:31:05--> 00:31:10

Interesting question See, how many of you get it right the shade on the shade on fear Allah?

00:31:11--> 00:31:18

He does. He actually says this in the CRAN with sudo. Salted hash, what does he say? Any?

00:31:19--> 00:31:27

A half, a half hope, a half a la Hara? Bellarmine I have fear of Allah. He said, How does he have fear of Allah but it's shaytaan.

00:31:29--> 00:32:04

Does he have Taqwa? No, it doesn't have to stuff for a big difference. fee was not enough for him to not do the harem. Think of a criminal when they're robbing a bank fee. They have fear that they're gonna get caught. But their heart is beating 100 miles an hour. They're trying to get away in the high speed car chase. They got fear. I don't want to get caught. They have fi but they don't have duck wha wha if they had duck, what they would have did that which would protect them. Right We said with pi is a protective barrier that would have avoided the prohibitions. See the big difference between half and taqwa so it duck Allah doesn't necessarily only mean have fear of Allah, but it's

00:32:04--> 00:32:23

fi coupled with action. In other words, protect yourself by all means necessary from the fire. So that was a panel of anti that's a whole lesson of itself. And if everyone asked you to give a small reminder to the sisters one day, you can just talk about that. Well, what it means it's fee it's an emotion plus an action. What are the actions? Those two

00:32:26--> 00:32:27

last one fitna?

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

II this a lot. Yes. What's the common translation for fitna?

00:32:38--> 00:32:40

I'm going through a fitna, right What if it?

00:32:42--> 00:32:54

Yeah, it could serve trial or tribulation and affliction. That's part of the meaning which kind of young you could say it's correct. I fitna, this is a fitna, but where did it come from? Initially, it came from the letters

00:32:55--> 00:32:58

that no good fattener fatahna

00:33:02--> 00:33:02


00:33:06--> 00:33:08

you know the name fat, thin,

00:33:09--> 00:33:11

fat, thin fatahna fat and

00:33:12--> 00:33:15

it's connected to fat then here's the photon.

00:33:16--> 00:33:28

The photon is the goldsmith Goldsmith. In fact, gold is called for tan also for Dan is another name for gold. So for 10 is gold. And it can also mean Goldsmith.

00:33:30--> 00:33:32

Why gold, whereas gold found

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

in the ground. So what do you need to do to get it? dig through dirt literally dig through dirt, dig through mud. That's not pleasant, is it? That's tough. That's tough. You got to go through mud, dirt filth, and then when you extract it from the earth, you have got gold or do you go to the shops without all that money in your hand? You say you go. What do you need to do?

00:33:54--> 00:34:00

Clean and purify. How do you do that? Goldsmith anyone knows anything about gold? How is it made? It's put where

00:34:02--> 00:34:36

furnace correct is put in a furnace. It's set ablaze, it's ignited. It's going through a trialing time of fitna. At first you're left with pure gold. That's what the fitna does to the believer. It goes you takes you through mud, rub the through the dirt, put you through a trialing time sets you ablaze and to your left as a pure minute pure muslimah free from sins upon well just like gold and minicab the hub. The scholar said the believer is like gold, ama aka nafa wherever they land wherever they are, they benefit be like gold.

00:34:37--> 00:34:59

So interesting connection between gold and fitna. Because to strike gold, you first got to go through a traveling time. Likewise, that's what the fit them do. They fit then they put you through trials, afflictions, tests. Don't look at your calamities in a bad way. You may not trust the plan, but always trust the planner, Allah azza wa jal

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

Never doubt laws Divine Decree. Before you strike gold, you first got to go through the mud. So that if you look at the lives of all the prophets that all had a tough time, the old child or you barely see them suffered for many years, years on end being sick. The prophets Allah send them also very difficult, just really zero. I had people against him, against him, Romans against him, Persians against him, going against him, trying to sabotage them with from within boycotts. His family members were murdered, assassination attempts are very difficult. So Allah azza wa jal, he tests you by via those tests, he's raising you and he's purifying you at the same time is purifying you. So

00:35:42--> 00:35:48

with the profits, of course that didn't seem so it was raising them further, raising them further. Does that come along later into panic mode?
