Hamid Hussain was here from Sri Lanka, Artemisia, Allah Riza

00:04:01--> 00:04:07

Yes, that's the way we should be saying it. Allah. All right, we hit 100 and we hit the top of the hour, so let's call it a die.

00:04:08--> 00:04:09

Take one.

00:04:10--> 00:04:39

I said I'm only gonna have to live America Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah, ala Alihi, wa Sahbihi, Malala and bad. Okay, so today we're talking about a law's intentions, Allah's intentions. My daughter when she was a crawling baby, when she was a crawling baby, there was this incident in which she was stuck up against a against the couch, and she fell between

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

she fell between the couch pillows, and she couldn't get up and it was always actually a really dangerous situation and allow it sitting right there. And you know, I gave her a moment to try to figure out how to do it herself. She couldn't get out and she was kind of like choking with these pillows on top of her. And then I pulled her out of that corner with the car

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

urges. So then she did this thing where she looked at the couch with like, scared and angry at the couch. And I'm thinking to myself all these years, I'm thinking to myself, couch didn't do that to you.

00:05:16--> 00:06:02

But for the next few days, she would always walk by the couch, and she would like she's angry at the couch. And this for me was an early example of causation doesn't equal quarrel. Sorry, correlation doesn't equal causation, just because she was there. And she looked at the couch, the couch isn't what did it, it was her actions. Now I'm starting that off right off the bat, because I hear this a lot where people something happens to them. And they want to know Allah's intentions. So as soon as something takes place, whether it's virus pandemic situations in their life, they miss a bus, and they go and start dwelling in this question of what is Allah's intentions? And then they don't even

00:06:02--> 00:06:09

ask that question. They literally just answer it. So to give you an example, let's suppose somebody was

00:06:11--> 00:06:28

if somebody was going to put on class for the first time, and then and you guys tell me in the comments, what does this mean? I'll give you a few moments to answer this after I tell you person is going to put on class for the first time. It's their first class, and

00:06:30--> 00:06:43

they walk to the bus station, and when they get to the bus station, the bus has departed, and the next bus is not coming for the next two hours. And they have missed the Quran class. What does this mean? What does this mean?

00:06:44--> 00:06:45

I'll give you a few seconds for that.

00:06:48--> 00:06:56

What does that mean? Somebody goes to the bus station, I'd like to hear your comments. Somebody goes to the bus station, they're going to put on class for a first time and

00:06:58--> 00:07:12

they miss the bus and the next bus is only coming in two hours and there's no way they're going to make it in time for the Quran class. What does it mean as Matt says, this means that it was Allah's pardon? For sure it's Allah. What does it mean? What does it mean?

00:07:14--> 00:07:18

Xboard D says they needed to leave earlier. That's what it means.

00:07:20--> 00:07:42

As Matt says, some may say an hour getting we're getting good here. As much as some may say they're being punished. Okay, Zara says it wasn't good for her to go at that time. So it's interesting these two comments one after the the other. As Matt says the conclusion was she's being punished. And the second version says that the Koran class wasn't good.

00:07:43--> 00:07:59

Somebody says means you should go earlier. Hola so Nyla says, hola didn't want you to go. So I love this. I love this because you guys are showing exactly what I'm talking about. We don't know everybody just makes

00:08:00--> 00:08:44

makes but costs up. We just make stuff up. And that's why when I hear people say hey, you know what I made da and and that bus of DOD didn't show up. That means I'm a bad person. Allah's punish me Allah doesn't want me to, that means this thing is in good for me. I shouldn't be staying away from it. That means you know what, it may just mean that they need to get what they need to wake up earlier and get to the bus station on time. That could be the meaning it's just as simple as that. So there's a statement there's a statement that I put on my on my Facebook page long time ago, and every time Facebook reminds me about that post, I always repost it because I love it. It says

00:08:44--> 00:08:55

everything happens for a reason and a purpose and sometimes that reason is you're dumb. You're dumb That's it. That's the reason it just right there. You're just dumb.

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

So let me talk about

00:09:05--> 00:09:53

Yeah, I'm going to talk about not speaking about Allah subhana data without knowledge or speaking about alas biodata with no knowledge so first off, Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran are the bIllahi min ash shaytani R Rajim Wila double full Nihalani So like I've been hearing in a summer one bosan Wonderful. The cool Lola ik Golo Hola, Inca Ghana Newman's Hola. So first off Allah subhanaw taala tells us don't make claims of Allah that what you don't know, you don't know and who knows what the who can claim something of Allah's intentions. Nobody knows that well as a family so that can be hanged and never concern yourself with anything of which you don't have any knowledge in the

00:09:53--> 00:09:59

Quran. Don't concern yourself with something that you don't have knowledge of. In the summer you barely you're hearing

00:10:00--> 00:10:20

Your sight and your heart kulula Iike Khanna and Hamas Allah, all of that is going to be held accountable on the Day of Judgment saying about Allah subhanaw taala that which we don't know and what's interesting actually, you know, I'm talking about making claims against Allah without knowledge during this Coronavirus.

00:10:22--> 00:11:03

Online, there's so many people saying things that are you know what, if you eat coconut, you'll be saved from the virus and I'm like, Well, you better go tell the hospitals in New York, they better get some more coconut, because people seem to be dying. And suggest this kind of talk is dangerous for people to just go and speak. And so you have like Facebook, I think WhatsApp as well. They blocked people from forwarding messages to stop the spread of falsehood to stop the spread of fossa, which is people speaking, without knowledge. It's really, really hard. You know, even the newspapers, newspapers are like, you know, don't spread false information. And then the newspapers,

00:11:03--> 00:11:19

like, you know, there's some promising information about a new test that happened, stuff like that. I'm like the newspaper, please follow your own advice, just, you know, report numbers, but don't try to tell us medical stuff. Because you're not a doctor. Allah subhanaw taala says

00:11:21--> 00:12:01

that, sorry, you don't want to say that Allah subhanaw taala love something or less. Panatela doesn't love something, unless Allah has said that. So and saying this from your own opinion, just because you don't like something doesn't mean that Allah subhanaw taala doesn't like something. Sometimes I find people I was doing one thing in a class where I'd make the students like go like, like, shout out loud. And I saw this kind of like religious person. And I could see in his mind that he didn't like what I was doing. And I could see his eyes searching for some sort of proof to tell me that this wasn't permissible. And then in my mind, I'm like, Look, you already made your opinion

00:12:01--> 00:12:16

up. And now you're just trying to find proof to back yourself up. That's not how this works. It's not how it were. We go first to the sources before we tried taking our opinions and trying to justify it. So Allah subhana data says in the Quran

00:12:20--> 00:12:26

why Allah dump on olema Del Sol info Anand Sina Docomo Khadija Hala

00:12:30--> 00:13:15

Hala ohada Haram Anita stone law Hina gathered in leadin is the winner along more he'll get Ebola you flee home. Hoan Allah subhanaw taala says while at Apolo and do not say Lima Chesley Phil Addison, Sen como el Khatib. Don't utter falsehood by letting your tongues just determined, at your own discretion, have the halal or haram don't lie against Allah subhanaw taala. And just by your own discretion, or trying to think from your own thought that this is halal. And this is how long you'd have thought about Allah and can you attribute in your own lying intentions to Allah? May Allah subhana, Allah protect us? Now, sometimes somebody will say, well, but my intentions were good.

00:13:16--> 00:13:56

intentions, good isn't good enough. Because the person might be, you know, they use people used to say something like they would lie against the prophets of Allah de Sena. And when people would tell them, you know, that's a lie. And then they would say this claim I'm not not lying against the messenger, I'm lying for the messenger. So hold the biller. This person is saying like, I'm this person making up Hadith to try to encourage people to do good deeds. So they'll say, whoever does such and such will have the reward of 70,000 prophets and 70,000 martyrs and 70. That way, that's a lot of reward, bro. And just because they do what you told them to do, that also lying in that's

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

forbidden, the messenger of allah sallallahu Sallam doesn't need us to lie, to do something. So what I'm telling you is it goes both ways, whether you're trying to encourage people, or whether you're trying to keep them away from from something. Let me tell you two stories when I was a little kid in Islamic camp.

00:14:15--> 00:14:30

For those of you who like pancakes, I do not like pancakes. And when I was a little kid, I really disliked pancakes. I was like, I would self vomit. If I if I smelled pancakes. I don't like pancakes. So I was going to this Islamic camp.

00:14:33--> 00:14:47

I was going to an Islamic camp Muslim camp as a little kid and I told the teacher there are one of the organizers, Sister Shahina. In Winnipeg, for those who know Winnipeg, she's a great pillar of the community.

00:14:48--> 00:14:50

I told her that

00:14:52--> 00:14:53

I'm allergic to pancakes.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

I said to her what I said I'm allergic to pancakes. Hola.

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

chick is different than I don't like. So. So she said to me, I remember as a little kid looking up at this is decina Auntie Shahina? And she said, is it that you don't? Is it that you really allergic to pancakes, or you just don't like it? And so I was confused by the question. So I said,

00:15:21--> 00:15:53

You know what, if I tell her that I don't like it, then she's gonna make me eat it. So I said to her no allergic. And so I think she got the message that I just meant, I don't like it. So I want to share with you that story. Because when it comes to Islam, you have to distinguish between something that you don't like, versus something that you're claiming Allah doesn't like, do you understand the difference? You have to distinguish between something that you don't like, versus

00:15:54--> 00:16:23

claiming that Allah doesn't like this. And this happens a lot with people who are, you know, if there's two factions, you know, you're on one faction, you're from the Bloods, and they're from the Crips, you're from the reds, they're from the blues, and stuff. In those kinds of situations. A lot of times we say things because we don't like it, or this person is a deviant, or this person is this, this and that. But because we don't like them, or they're not part of our group, but that doesn't mean that Allah subhanaw taala likes or dislikes,

00:16:24--> 00:16:34

doesn't, likes or dislikes something. I will finish off with a lesson that I learned from great teacher that I had in Medina, and he passed away recently.

00:16:39--> 00:17:04

So he was an assorted fifth teacher. So that fifth is like basically, how does Islamic law? How does Islamic jurisprudence or laws come to be? What are the principles? What is the foundation of how laws come to be? So there's a student in our class who knew all the controversial opinions of our teacher? And every time question, answer would come up, the student would ask the teacher

00:17:06--> 00:17:26

one of these controversial opinions that he has, and we would wait for him to tell us, you know, to ask the teacher so one of the controversial opinions that our teacher had, and this in Medina, is that he did not so in Saudi Arabia, they believe that smoking is haram. They believe that smoking is haram. Forbidden and that Allah hates it.

00:17:28--> 00:17:36

So this teacher who's teaching in Medina, sort of Falcon is one of the great teachers in our university. His opinion was

00:17:37--> 00:17:39

that smoking is mcru.

00:17:40--> 00:17:42

Smoking is disliked.

00:17:43--> 00:17:52

So one of the students asked him teacher we heard that you say that smoking is not haram, but that smoking is mcru.

00:17:53--> 00:17:57

And I'll never forget this teacher, shuffle Amin.

00:17:59--> 00:18:02

He was very old. He was old at that time.

00:18:03--> 00:18:05

Or maybe it wasn't as though I just assumed that he was old.

00:18:07--> 00:18:51

He passed away now, but I'm Allah. He got so angry. And he got angry for about 20 minutes. I was like counting. He was angry for about 20 minutes. And he says, How dare you say that I lied against Allah or I claimed that Allah didn't like something. So he was so angry, but you know what, you know what he was angry about? He wasn't angry. So he was angry that the students said that the teacher said that smoking was a cruel, he was angry because he himself said that I dislike it. That's my personal opinion. But I would never say that Allah dislikes it.

00:18:52--> 00:19:35

Do you see what I'm saying? So he was angry that somebody would associate the ruling of mcru to him. And that's claiming that Allah dislikes it. He said, I never said that Allah doesn't dislike it. The reason that I want to bring it wanted to show you that is when it comes to mcru people like Allah dislike something Allah is Allah like something dislikes hates all of these things, that it's such an arrogant thing to do and a very dangerous thing to go about. And so our attitude should always be Allah knows best. What does this mean? I don't know and neither do you when I see videos of people saying oh pandemic is because look at this political situation. Look at what happened in the news

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

yesterday look like how do you know that? How do you know those things? How do you know those intentions? You don't know. So just humble yourself and say I don't know but I personally have a connection with this political situation our like, or I think our I have feelings, but that has nothing to do with Allah's intentions. It has nothing to do with Islam. It's just my opinion.

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

That's what the person needs to be saying. So when you see these doom and gloom type of lectures, that's what you really gotta be asking your question. Just because you don't like pancakes doesn't mean that Allah doesn't like pancakes or law Tada Adam so as Ramadan comes along Ramadan is

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

Ramadan is a time where everybody likes to jump into the fat was swimming pool. And everybody likes to like, well I gotta fight wha Moon sighting Moon fighting and all that stuff. And so I would love for your attitude to be that Allah knows best? I don't know, I really don't know. So when somebody says to me, what's your opinion on this book? I don't know. I don't just it's not. It's not my thing. I don't know. Well, how you deal with the moon sighting issue, and I usually do a video just about this every year is you don't want to ask yourself, How is the moon sighted?

00:20:57--> 00:21:38

You want to ask who is the legal authority in your community? Who can decide this matter? Who decides this matter? Who is the legal authority in the community that decides this matter? And then they're the ones who will decide that that's, you know, you're maybe you have a council of imams in your city, or if you're in a Muslim country they have their councils that decide when the moon is citing, believe me, you don't have to be involved in that whatsoever. All you just really have to ask yourself the question is, who is the leader in my vicinity? Who makes this decision? That's what you need to decide and then just go with what they say. And it's a done deal. Well, Allah Allah so

00:21:38--> 00:21:57

bottom line, take action as Ramadan comes along, get more in the habit of recognizing just like you recognize when people are talking about the virus, and they don't know also recognize when people are speaking about Allah subhanaw taala when they don't know and it's just their feelings and their opinions, and we don't need any of that stuff. Milan.

00:21:59--> 00:22:03

Anybody got a question? Anybody got a question? We're done.

00:22:08--> 00:22:23

Rubina says, You don't like because I think you'd like savory food better than sweet stuff. 100% chips versus chocolate bar, I would take the chips, but sometimes I like chocolate bars sometimes. As long as not to chocolate.

00:22:25--> 00:22:33

Amanda says, what's the appropriate attitude towards this matter? What should one do when facing hardship if not blaming God?

00:22:42--> 00:22:46

Thank you, Amanda, for your question. So if a person is facing hardship

00:22:47--> 00:23:31

so let's put it like this Amanda is it that we only thank God when when we have money and we're in the good times? If that's the case, that only rich people should be thanking God because poor people well, they didn't get anything so it's God's fault. And if that's the case is well then only healthy people should be thanking God and worshiping God because sick people will they didn't get good health so sorry, they shouldn't worship God. And it goes it goes on and on like that our worship of God isn't correlated to getting stuff isn't correlated to getting stuff. So when a person goes through a difficult time in their life goes through a hardship and sometimes I see a person kind of

00:23:31--> 00:24:00

like turning towards blaming God number one I'm talking you don't know the intended that they turned towards blaming God, I feel so sad, because I'm like, this is your darkest hour of your life. And you're trying to take God out of the equation. You're trying to like who do you have left? If you have no one to turn to except the likes of God? And so I'm like begging and pleading don't cut off because the only person that can help you in this darkest hour is Allah subhanaw taala.

00:24:08--> 00:24:16

bedrijven I don't know what your started your question with but so I don't know what that but is connected.

00:24:18--> 00:24:21

Like you're negating something, so I don't know what that means.

00:24:25--> 00:24:34

Okay, so as Matt says, when things go wrong, or jot the way or not the way you plan, like the bus issue, you mentioned doesn't really mean it's because we're dumb.

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

So it's not I just wanted to clarify so I'm not saying everybody's dumb and every time something doesn't work out, it's it's because it's dumb. I just want to emphasize that when people really you know, I get the attitude of, you know, maybe it's because you're dumb because I associate that with the attitude of claiming to know what Allah

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

his intentions are and saying it as if it's a fact. So a person says and I loved you know just when I asked that question you saw how many intentions came up and they're all different one says it's a punishment once there's a lead doesn't want you to go there one person said I'm like look what's dumb is assuming that you know what the intention of Allah is and you don't so what you want to do is always look for you want to always look for well how can I get better you know like it's the holotype of Da if this is good for me make it easier for me. And if it's bad for me then keep me away from it. If I missed the bus that I would tell myself you know what I need to wake up earlier

00:25:40--> 00:25:53

next time I need to maybe deal with this the Why am I scared of going to this class such and such and just deal with it but I will not make claims against Allah subhanaw taala I will turn it back towards myself

00:26:03--> 00:26:22

and for those of you um, we are done now I'm just taking questions, but for people who want to know the question about the marmalade What did marmalade say? When she found herself in a difficult facing and difficult problem? What did marmalade say? When she found herself facing a difficult problem? She said

00:26:24--> 00:26:25

looks like we're in a jam

00:26:38--> 00:26:40

let's see my hand again. How

00:26:43--> 00:26:46

how can we deal with that family member who blames God for his loss

00:26:53--> 00:27:09

you don't mean *. Almost today man has a course on Prophet au on a you ballet serum and au ballets and um, I actually learned it from show homage that I met when he taught it for the first time about how a you body is Suriname

00:27:10--> 00:27:51

was you know whether he had wealth or he didn't whether you had good health or you didn't whether he had a large family or he lost family members. You bought s&m continued to worship Allah. And it might be my hand if you go to Shahar cinnamons course, I believe in Muller Institute is teaching I think it's on demand. And in you may be able to get access to it. And look at what you learn from the story of Prophet iubat. He said I'm in order to help a family member who is basically blaming Allah subhanaw taala for their loss. In situations like that, like I gave you this example of, you know, somebody I knew, that was in a really dark place, and they were blaming God, blaming Allah

00:27:51--> 00:28:02

subhanaw taala for this situation, they're like, How could God do this and whatnot. And my response is, you know, what, is it only rich people that worship God, only healthy people worship God? Only?

00:28:03--> 00:28:21

You know, you get the idea that that what only one God gives you what you want, is that the only time you worship Allah subhanaw taala. The answer's no, that's not. So that's a logical argument. But there's also other things, which is they're, they're feeling emotional. So you want to turn them back to a lesson.

00:28:29--> 00:28:37

And this question, I'll remind you, guys, Visionaire Ramadan is coming around the corner when it comes. Visionaire

00:28:40--> 00:29:23

How can we boost up someone's faith when they're making dua but their doors not accepting so Rohita what I say about accepting Allah subhanaw taala answers all doors, whether it's yes, and you get what you asked for or Yes, but you but not right now. So you get it later, or Yes, but I have something better for you. So ALLAH SubhanA data is Al Hakim, the all wise and aligning the All Knowing. So if I may to offer something and my focus is on making the making the prayer. My focus isn't so much on I need to get that thing. I need to get that thing I need to get that thing. My focus is on the experience and the journey of making that door to Allah subhanaw taala if it doesn't

00:29:23--> 00:29:57

turn out if it's not the first way, which is I get exactly what I asked for. I have this positive expectancy, that if ALLAH SubhanA data is Allah Halim al Hakim, that his knowledge of what I what I need is better than my knowledge. Allah and His Messenger know best as the Companions would say, Allah wa rasuluh Adam. And so I have this positive expectancy or I might tell myself or what do I need to change in my life, to be able to embrace and accept the Have this?

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

Have this da answer

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

In my life

00:30:04--> 00:30:41

and I'd also you know, give you one last point or here, which is Allah subhanaw taala gives us everything. Allah subhanaw taala says, and if you were to count the blessings of Allah upon you, you would never be able to, you wouldn't be able to count the blessed. So when one person says, Oh, I didn't get this one thing that I prayed for, like, look, every blessing in your life is from Allah is my data, you have a million blessings, your eyesight, your health, your family, your well, your, your shelter, your you know, you have all these things, and then this person's like, no, I need to citizenship to go to Canada, and it hasn't gone through yet. And then they're like, Okay, now I

00:30:41--> 00:30:44

don't believe in God. Like what? What is that?

00:30:46--> 00:30:47

Does it make sense?

00:30:56--> 00:31:01

That'd be a great question. We got I'll be done at half after the hour and

00:31:09--> 00:31:22

nowadays, so many invitations of Islamic classes are confusing me, what should I do? So I actually wrote an Islamic Studies curriculum long time ago. And my argument was that

00:31:24--> 00:31:49

when people pick and choose classes on their own, they're designing an Islamic Studies curriculum on their own, which is a light, it's basically asking everybody to be an Islamic Studies curriculum designer, but that's the life we live in, everybody's just picking and choosing different things that they want to attend. So if you don't take it too seriously, then just attend classes that that

00:31:50--> 00:32:03

you're interested in. For now, just attend classes that you're interested in. When you want to get more serious and structured, then you might say, Hey, let me follow a curriculum from an institute that I respect and so on so

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

Maghrib Institute

00:32:25--> 00:32:30

Trina says, this may be a dumb question. There's no such thing as a dumb question. Only dumb people.

00:32:32--> 00:33:10

I've been trying to lose weight for now. I'm joking. I don't even know what that means. I've been trying to lose weight for a while and I've had some success, then the pandemic happened and I've slipped is it wrong? That one of the reasons I'm happy about Ramadan is as a reset to my healthy habits in sha Allah, tada. Someone told me this is wrong to have this. So it's interesting based on what we talked about today, somebody told you that Allah is saying that your thought is wrong. And so great example, you. I would say to them, Well, how do you know Allah's intentions? How do you know? And then they're like, well, so you would say, Trina I would say to the person, maybe it's

00:33:10--> 00:33:52

better that you say that you yourself, don't like it. But don't go around telling people that Allah doesn't like it. Okay, so someone told me that this is wrong. For me to have this thought. Of course, it's not the only reason I'm looking forward to Ramadan, but it's a true to be one of them. So Trina, Walla, and um, here's the thing. You want your intention, when you go for a worship, it's to worship Allah. Now the worship, Allah commands us to do these worships, because they are a benefit to us. They are a benefit to us as the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, so move so fast, and you will become healthy. So you're just a response to whoever your friend was that told you this,

00:33:52--> 00:34:27

the Messenger of Allah said, when you fast you become healthy, or even if somebody has an addiction, like, they need to lower their gaze and pornography and stuff like that prophets of Allah, they sent him said, you know, whoever amongst you is able to get married, they should and if not, then they should fast. So somebody might approach their fasting with a good intention that hey, I want to lower my gaze, or I want to deal with my addiction. So your thought is not wrong. The only thing you know where it would show up is when a person doesn't hope for the reward of Allah subhanaw taala. So

00:34:28--> 00:34:59

doesn't hope for the reward. What that means is like, I heard somebody say this, they went for Hajj. And and they were like, I don't really care about the reward. I'm just here like as a tourist. And I was like, That's messed up, where a person doesn't hope for the reward for their for their worship, and they're just there because they want to see the sights and stuff like that. That person should, you know, their intention should be for the worship, and a secondary Hey, and I'd love to see mech I'd love to see the Kaaba and all of these good things.

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

after that and that's it we're done my friends is duck Maka and everybody who tuned in inshallah Tada we have got

00:35:10--> 00:35:28

Yeah, um, so Seema say, inshallah Tada I am planning to do some reminders. I think this daily huddle has been really nice. Sometimes when I'm teaching visionair during Ramadan, it's hard to maintain daily reminders and teach the class and stuff like that, but we'll see what we'll do. We'll be doing something in sha Allah Tala.

00:35:33--> 00:35:48

Allah Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah. But okay to tune in tomorrow in sha Allah at 255 New York time, where we will see whether we'll hit the number first, or the top of the hour is Aquila high and on a set MIT
