salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam.

00:00:17--> 00:00:59

We begin by praising Allah the Almighty the majestic the exalted, we asked him to send his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who trade upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of karma, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, I welcome you all to a brand new episode. Within the words from the Quran, and the Sunnah series We ask Allah Subhana Allah to accept this series from us. And we ask him to help us to emulate the beautiful prophet ik model the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and to implement the teachings of the Quran

00:00:59--> 00:01:00

within our lives, I mean,

00:01:02--> 00:01:06

so for today's episode, I would like to touch on the word Islam.

00:01:08--> 00:01:30

As is our practice, we will go into literally unpacking the word, the literal definition of it, and then we will go on to discuss the shery definition of it. So what does Islam literally mean? Islam is an Arabic term, and it stems from the word as lemma in the Arabic language, which in turn, stems from the trilateral verb, Salah.

00:01:31--> 00:01:32

So what does this mean?

00:01:33--> 00:01:53

Before we move forward, I want you all to bear a few things in mind. Primarily, the words Islam, Muslim, salaam, a Salama, a Selim, all of these words stem from the same trilateral verb Salamat seen Lam meme in the Arabic language.

00:01:55--> 00:02:10

So, the term Salaam when we say Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. The term Salaam is translated as peace. The word as Salah MA in the Arabic language

00:02:11--> 00:02:20

is translated as being free of defects, free from defects free from harm, if you will.

00:02:22--> 00:03:12

Now as for the word Islam, which stems from us lemma and the word Muslim as well, okay. These two words stem from that same web, that same scale. It is translated as being, as in to submit submissiveness, you have submissiveness, you have compliance you have obedience. All of this is brought under this particular term. So a Muslim is an individual who submits who complies who obeys. Now we're going to obviously study as to what you're supposed to submit to, as to what you're supposed to obey. But here at the literal standpoint, that's basically what it means. So like I said, Peace also stems from the same trilateral verb. So in a way, when you get into the technical

00:03:12--> 00:03:29

definition, you'll understand it is to submit to the will of Allah, it is to submit to the will of your maker. And the whole idea is that when you submit you attain peace. When you submit, you attain peace, may Allah azzawajal bless us all with peace in this world as well as the next I mean.

00:03:31--> 00:03:51

So I hope you've understood the literal definition of Islam it is to comply. It is to submit an A Muslim is an individual who submits a Muslim is an individual who complies and obeys. Is that clear? Now for the shery definition. Now here, it gets interesting, and I want you all to pay close attention.

00:03:52--> 00:04:01

If the term Islam is mentioned by itself, okay, so before we go into that discussion at this point, I'd like to repeat what I said earlier on.

00:04:03--> 00:04:07

If the question arises as to what a Muslim is supposed to submit to,

00:04:09--> 00:04:13

it's obvious it's clear without a shadow of doubt that we're talking about submitting to the will of your maker,

00:04:15--> 00:04:59

not to submit to your own desires, not to make your own desires, your God may Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all some of us were made of our desires, our God, some of us have made our own intellects our God, we worship our own intellects. We worship our desires, we become slaves not to Allah, but to our desires. May Allah protect us all. So here a Muslim is not an individual who is a slave unto his desires. No, he is a slave unto Allah, he submits to the will of his maker subhanho wa Taala. So now to proceed with the technical definition of Islam. If the term Islam is mentioned by itself, as in

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

without it being joined or connected to the term Eamon

00:05:06--> 00:05:49

when it comes along the same line as or if it's written or discussed, if it's mentioned in the same context as a man then you we will study basically how you would define Islam but if it were to be defined by itself exclusively, then what we would understand by Islam is that it encompasses the whole Deen the whole Deen. It encompasses all of the statements within the deen it encompasses beliefs, it basically encompasses statements, beliefs, and actions. So when Islam is mentioned by itself, it encompasses a man. It encompasses a son,

00:05:50--> 00:06:38

Allah azza wa jal, he says in the Noble Quran in Edina or in the law Hill Islam, indeed the deen by Allah is Islam. So as you can see the entire Deen but Allah azza wa jal is Islam and Allah says in surah almeyda ayah number three Aloma Mottola. bundeena Come on this day I have completed my Deen upon you. This is untrue Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in another place. Eliza. Eliza he says woman Yeah, Batali aviral Islami de Nan Fela you cobalamin the one who desires a Deen other than Islam that is not going to be accepted from him. So as you can see, the deen the word beam, which an internet encompasses everything your statements, your actions, your beliefs, your rituals, all of

00:06:38--> 00:06:38


00:06:40--> 00:07:03

Okay, when Islam is mentioned individually, that's what it means. Yeah, you alladhina amanu Hulu facil McAfee Allah says oh you who believe enter into Islam completely. So Islam in turn relates to the dean and the dean basically it means everything. So within it Eman comes within it Hassan comes.

00:07:04--> 00:07:15

So that's the beauty of understanding it individually. Now let's let's look at this Hadith, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Hadith is recorded in the book of Imam Muhammad Rahim Allah.

00:07:16--> 00:07:47

There was no Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for call the Rasul Allah mal Islam. So there was a man who goes to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he asks him on messenger of Allah, what is Islam and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he responds Islam is to submit your heart unto Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah to submit your heart unto Allah and for the Muslims to be safe from your tongue and your hands.

00:07:50--> 00:08:12

In another narration, Professor Allison report Rasul Allah Muslim movement Salim Al Nasser millison he via the Muslim is an individual who the people around him the people basically are safe from his tongue and his hands in other words, the Muslim is an individual who does not hurt others with his tongue with his or her tongue. And Muslim is an individual who does not hurt others with his or her limbs.

00:08:14--> 00:08:33

May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us true Muslims I mean, so here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says it is to submit your heart and to Allah, and for the Muslims to be safe from your tongue and your hands. And then the man goes on to ask the Prophet sallallahu Sallam for I use Islam as well.

00:08:36--> 00:08:38

So which of Islam is the best?

00:08:39--> 00:08:43

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam now responds to that Hadith and he man.

00:08:45--> 00:09:26

So which part of Islam is the best? And he man and then the man goes on to ask woman the man what is the man of the Hadith continues? So what do we understand from this narration? They've been talking about Islam individually, it encompasses a man as well. Now when you bring Islam and Eman in one line, and then discuss it upon the same context, then yes, their definitions become more granular and more precise, as we will see in just a bit. But when talking about Islam individually in a holistic sense, it encompasses a human. It encompasses ersan. It encompasses your statements, your beliefs, your actions, the rituals, everything of the deen comes within Islam.

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

Now when we bring a man into the equation and talk about Islam and EMA, in other words, if Islam is mentioned alongside or along with a man, then it becomes more granular. Then what is intended by Islam is your outwardly actions. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a reporter of said Boolean Islam Allah humps that Islam is built upon five IE five pillars, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes on to list the five pillars and the shadow Allah Allah, Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah

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

law to be a witness to testify to testify that there is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is His Messenger and to clay masala to establish Salah tirza to give out you as acaba, sama Ramadan to fast the month of Ramadan, the month that you and I are in melasma gel help us all to make the most out of this month of Ramadan. And may He bless us all to attain many more Ramadan in the future. I mean, and what the who jailbait

00:10:28--> 00:11:06

minister trata de Sevilla and to perform pilgrimage, Hajj to the house of Allah, Allah for those who are able to do so. So these are the five pillars of Islam, and as you can see, they are outwardly actions. As for a man, they basically consist of the inwardly actions, and this is why you have the six articles of faith. And all of this is clearly outlined in the famous hadith of gibreel hadith of gibreel, where you breed allyssa to Islam comes to the Prophet of Allah in the guise of a human being and he asks him, what is Islam? What is EMA? And what is Hassan? So very interesting Hadith with many lessons. So they are the prophets that along with him, he defines Islam. He defines the

00:11:06--> 00:11:25

man What is a man and took me to believe that he could be he could be he will, surely he will, he will, he will shatter him and Allah, to believe in Allah to believe in his angels to believe in his books to believe in his messengers to believe in the last day, the day of judgment and to believe in destiny, Destiny is all to believe in destiny that good and evil is from it.

00:11:28--> 00:12:09

So here when it is brought my dear brothers and sisters, in one context, they are not, as in they're more granular the definitions the definitions are granular. Now for example, we have in the Quran where Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentions quality Arab armineh the Bedouins they came and they said we have believed we have brought in a man called lamb to me No Well, I can kulu as lemna say, oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tell them you have not yet to believe that you have not yet brought in Eman Radha Well, I can kulu Islam now but rather say that you have a slum now you have submitted, well admired the holy man of lubicon for faith has yet not penetrated into your hearts as

00:12:09--> 00:12:16

you can see in this ayah it points out that there is this granular difference or

00:12:19--> 00:12:34

granular distinguishing between Eman and Islam. I hope it's clear. Now my dear brothers and sisters in Islam with regards to the virtues of Islam with regard to the virtues of being a Muslim.

00:12:36--> 00:12:40

The Hadith record on the book of Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah

00:12:43--> 00:12:48

Omar Abdullah hottub are the Allahu anhu he mentioned that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is reporter have said

00:12:50--> 00:12:51


00:12:52--> 00:13:01

for people whenever four persons testify to the goodness of a Muslim if they were to testify to the goodness of a Muslim

00:13:02--> 00:13:04

or the Hola Hola, hola, Jana

00:13:07--> 00:13:10

I uma Muslim in shahidullah who are baton behind

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

the Hola Hola, hola, Jana,

00:13:15--> 00:13:22

whichever Muslim, but we have four people testifying to the goodness of this individual, Allah will enter him into Jannah.

00:13:24--> 00:13:48

As the Prophet said this the companions immediately asked the Messenger of Allah Rasool Allah, what about three people? What about three people if three people were to testify the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said yes, even three, and then they got about two. Let's say if there's an individual or two people can testify about him. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said even two people and thereafter, the narrator and the companions, they say we didn't ask about only one person.

00:13:50--> 00:14:24

Somebody's brothers and sisters in Islam, the virtue of being a Muslim and the four people go to testify with regards to you being a good Muslim. Allah will enter you into Jenna. And then the prophets Allah Allah Islam says three people and Allah will enter you into Jenna to people that Allah will enter you into Jenna, what a blessing. What a blessing as a man and Islam. You're going to enter Jannah Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all. With many, many witnesses to our goodness, I mean, I mean, I mean Allah help us to strive to be good Muslims I mean.

00:14:28--> 00:14:51

In another Hadith the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is reputed to have said, the US and I had to come Islam I hope that if any one of you improves strives for ehsaan excellence with regards to his Islam, for kulu Hassan attend Yamaha tabula hoobie Ashley I'm thoroughly her Illa Sudbury mi ideograph Allahu Akbar.

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

If any one of you strives for excellence with regards to his Islam, then his good deeds, his good deeds

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

It will be recorded, where he will be rewarded.

00:15:04--> 00:15:10

Where it is multiplied anywhere within the spectrum of 10 times to 700 times.

00:15:13--> 00:15:16

Allahu Akbar so many fold for each good deed.

00:15:18--> 00:15:21

Bakula say attend Yama maluca took tabula hooby myth Lee.

00:15:23--> 00:16:06

As for the evil deeds, they will be recorded as one evil deed. Look at the generosity of our maker and look at the virtue of being a Muslim. Look at the virtue of Islam. For every good deed, you stand the chance for it to be multiplied from 10 to 700. Allow multiply our good deeds many, many fold I mean, and as for the evil deeds, Allah is not cruel. Allah is not harsh, but evil deeds are not multiplied. They are recorded as when you commit one sin, it's recorded as one sin. May Allah help us to stay away from since I mean, now my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, I want to highlight something of paramount importance extremely important. And that is that Islam

00:16:07--> 00:16:52

was the religion that all prophets of Allah was sent to it. Given that we are unpacking the word Islam in this series, I feel it imperative that we discuss this. Again, let me repeat myself Islam was the religion that all the prophets of Allah was entered. And as believers, as believers in Allah, this is what we must believe in. Islam was the religion that all the prophets of Allah sent with. Now you may you may ask. Sure, well and good, but what is your proof in this regard? Where is your proof? How are you arriving at the conclusion that Islam was the religion that all the prophets of Allah sent to it? Yes, obviously. Mohammed Salah Toby was Allahu Allah he was sent with Islam.

00:16:53--> 00:17:23

But what about the other prophets of Allah? Were they also sent with Islam? Yes, my dear brother. Yes, my dear sister, and I invite you to come see what Allah subhanho wa Taala has to say in the Noble Quran with regards to this.
