Salam Salam

00:00:41 --> 00:00:41


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

let's have a look

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

at that

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

the cell rule

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

the element method what is the worst Lolly network in the league and mercy? What are how do I pull

00:01:05 --> 00:01:12

a love of Sally over UCLA Muhammad Ali Mohammed can isolate. Tala Rahim Allah earlybird in the Gambia.

00:01:13 --> 00:01:17

For Praise be to Allah we praise Him we seek his forgiveness, guidance and his mercy.

00:01:19 --> 00:01:28

We ask Allah will Glory be to Him? And indeed he has no partners, we asked him for useful beneficial knowledge and understanding

00:01:29 --> 00:01:31

and for wide systems.

00:01:32 --> 00:01:39

And we also love to accept our efforts and our deeds and ask you to enforce forgiveness.

00:01:40 --> 00:01:47

And we actually depend on Allah subhanaw taala. Indeed, to him is our goal and return

00:01:48 --> 00:01:51

after sending peace of prayers on his final messenger Muhammad Salah

00:01:52 --> 00:01:54

if we resume our

00:01:55 --> 00:01:58

third Hadith, which we started last week

00:02:01 --> 00:02:04

reported by Ananda Allah, Loki, Allah one, Angola

00:02:08 --> 00:02:09

Why do we say that the other one

00:02:11 --> 00:02:13

because it's the father of this one and also how

00:02:15 --> 00:02:24

do we save the boss? Because we're saying if they are blaming the Allman Brothers that is the son of armour

00:02:28 --> 00:02:33

symetra su light Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi Salatu was Salam

00:02:34 --> 00:02:46

yaku Bani al Islam Allah Hamsun shahada, the Allah Allah illallah wa Ana Muhammad Allah so often, why POM is Salawa Italia is the current or had Gil bade was sold and all of

00:02:50 --> 00:02:56

this has already started last time we talked a bit about the lender of last time and the other of the laws and

00:02:57 --> 00:03:00

the other variations of the same last time.

00:03:02 --> 00:03:04

And we came to then

00:03:05 --> 00:03:06

the issue of

00:03:08 --> 00:03:18

overview of the hadith of why said built on fire, if you remember last time for those of you here, and the idea of the building, building being built on the fire

00:03:19 --> 00:03:22

is important. The building was our life.

00:03:23 --> 00:03:33

The way we live our lives is to be built on the five Islam isn't just the five. Islam is what we build on the five which are part of Islam.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:46

Last time I remembered if I mentioned to you from the previous videos, we've already said that Islam and Eman cover each other in their meaning when they come along in the Quran and Sunnah.

00:03:48 --> 00:04:18

Incorporate the meaning of the other. So Eman includes in it. These things were mentioning here. Okay. And I'll mention that again. Islam. Islam includes an amen. And we have evidence of that, as I said last time, if you look at what it says first, after when the progress has been built on five, what do you say? shahada, shahada to Allah Allah illallah wa nun Muhammad Rasul is not that see man, isn't it?

00:04:19 --> 00:04:23

The shahada is Ealer. So it's already in a inside

00:04:24 --> 00:04:27

the definition of Islam Bani al Islam Allah

00:04:30 --> 00:04:33

and if you remember when we did the last Hadith that

00:04:34 --> 00:04:41

when we talked about the Jibreel Hadith when the Prophet son was was asked by Gibreel, Ash bedni Anil Iman

00:04:43 --> 00:04:45

Tell me then about Eman.

00:04:47 --> 00:04:51

And he mentioned the Rasul Allah so as I mentioned about the articles of faith

00:04:53 --> 00:05:00

and taught me that Billa Who am I like if he were to be here a rosary? While y'all may ask him what

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

I told me he

00:05:02 --> 00:05:03

will pardon hiring he was shoveling

00:05:05 --> 00:05:11

that's what he said saliva, but email is to believe in Allah is angels, the books, the messengers

00:05:12 --> 00:05:20

that last day and to believe in the other man that the good and the bad,

00:05:21 --> 00:05:37

the good and the bad. And we said in one very in fact in one Hadith the Prophet starts on Monday if we mentioned with the previous reason I want to mention it again because it corroborates what I'm saying is that these insoluble hottie reported babylights Abbas

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

that a group from

00:05:41 --> 00:05:54

up to base a delegation came from them to the messenger of allah sallallahu Medina, they said, Yeah, so Allah, you know, between us and you, there's a kofod tribe, yeah. And we have to travel

00:05:56 --> 00:05:57

to you

00:05:59 --> 00:06:02

know, tikka in Luffy shall be haram for would not be am

00:06:03 --> 00:06:08

no bill will be he and what are we have to travel through that group so they find it

00:06:10 --> 00:06:15

dangerous and risky. So the saying that he does not tell us something.

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

advises teachers that we can go and teach those who have left behind from our tribe, from our people.

00:06:24 --> 00:06:27

In that read the prophets classroom says

00:06:29 --> 00:06:32

blah, blah says so the previous lesson taught them four things.

00:06:33 --> 00:06:34


00:06:36 --> 00:07:04

Amara who Bill Iman Billa xojo, Wanda, all things to do with believing in Allah as one and only a prophesy. Salam said, how can the Runa man Eman Billahi what he said to them Do you know what emailing Allah the one is? They said as Sahaba used to say, Allahu wa rasuluh Aslam Allah and His Messenger Noveske because they want to hear from him rather than giving the answer

00:07:05 --> 00:07:17

so Salah lesson, he said, shahada, Allah Illa Illa Allah, this is he saying, You know what Iman is? Notice, didn't say Islam here. He said,

00:07:18 --> 00:07:32

shahada to Allah ilaha illallah wa Ana Muhammad Rasulullah why he call me salah. Why you ties the car was sold when I'm alone. What total homes mineral mineral.

00:07:36 --> 00:07:41

So he mentioned this in regards to ima he said it is to declare

00:07:42 --> 00:07:46

that there is no God but Allah and Mohammed is a messenger of Allah.

00:07:47 --> 00:07:58

And to establish the tsar to pay does occur and to foster Ramadan similar to this, the fear what we mentioned here, the only thing that's missing is Hajj from this.

00:08:00 --> 00:08:15

Hajj is missing from him, because he makes him for things. He's missing some aspects of the man. Yeah. And perhaps at this stage, when this delegation came out, it wasn't obligatory anyway. It became obligatory later on in the life of muscle, all

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


00:08:18 --> 00:08:25

And to give, he mentioned a fifth from the booty in warfare to Allah and His Messenger

00:08:26 --> 00:08:39

has something to do with that. Why I mentioned that easily because the prophets also mentions inom and defines it by the same kind of thing to show you that they have the same time. The other thing, which is important to understand actually,

00:08:41 --> 00:08:43

is that actually,

00:08:45 --> 00:08:49

when it mentions Islam here, and that will leave mentioned Imam

00:08:52 --> 00:08:59

the way to understand these pillars of Islam, the bad debt, here is the bad debt

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

is that they're actually part of

00:09:03 --> 00:09:08

their party. What do I mean by that? Well, we'll look at

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

the verse verses and beginning of Jews number to say a cool sofa will mean a nasty, and now we'll uncover the multicam Valley had to do with the Kenyan Pinilla.

00:09:22 --> 00:09:47

And the foolish people all the time saying why they changed the Qibla from beta macness to the Kaaba at that time when that happened. And it was implemented by Osama some of the Sahaba some Sahaba said Oh, what about all the prayers that have been done before and those who died and they did their prayer two by two luckily somewhat a wall up into that. So Allah says in the Quran, Mama Canada UTI Eman?

00:09:49 --> 00:09:59

Well, America can you do email? Allah will not let that human go to waste. He said Iman, all the facilities have agreed that was revealed that

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

Time as bubbled in the zoo as the situation caused a revelation for that part of the iron. And what did demand mean that Allah will not let their salon go to waste for that wisdom to obey to not because he accepts it? Because that was the order at that time.

00:10:16 --> 00:10:19

So you see the word Eman is being used for Salah

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

for Salah

00:10:23 --> 00:10:34

and similarly, here this hadith of the delegation mentioned Salah Zakka fasting as under the category of email

00:10:36 --> 00:10:50

that's the that's really the best definition when we say for example, if we look at Surah Al Asad, while ask Allah taking both by time in the in Santa Fe host surely All human beings

00:10:51 --> 00:11:31

are surely in a state of loss laughy horse is stressed that inhale into enough courses a stress Most definitely, surely, verily, human beings all of them laffy LA is it here is love Tolki D they say in Arabic love to stress to say for sure Luffy was our instead of loss or loss either the ILA Xena Amanu Romulus salejaw, except those who have Eman and do righteous deeds and carries on Salah song Hajj Zakka and not in Amarillo salejaw by the way.

00:11:33 --> 00:11:36

They're in EMA in Lille, Edina.

00:11:38 --> 00:11:58

And Emilio salejaw is like saying what I said last week Islam is built on five pillars. So the five pillars of Eman I made a solid heart is you building the rest of your life and the good that you do? Good that you do to others to the environment in benefiting all that is around you that is

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

that is

00:12:03 --> 00:12:05

that's the best understanding to have that

00:12:07 --> 00:12:09

week come back to this

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

first thing

00:12:14 --> 00:12:15

probably saw some says

00:12:16 --> 00:12:18

shahada de la la la la la

00:12:21 --> 00:12:28

la fantasy. These five are first shahada de la ilaha illallah shahada for the shahada, me.

00:12:31 --> 00:12:32

Were witness.

00:12:34 --> 00:12:37

Oh, witnesses used nowadays?

00:12:38 --> 00:12:39

Is evidence.

00:12:41 --> 00:12:47

Yeah, what? Witness witness and we need to understand the law. What's the witness for

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

establishing the truth of something?

00:12:53 --> 00:13:22

Yes, because if you've got in a court in a court anywhere, not even in a court or in a court is a classical place, or you have a pact between two people. The idea is to get it signed and witness it. So the witness can say when they have a disagreement, yeah, this is how it was caught? Yeah, somebody who's seen it so that because they may be lying. I'm not giving the full truth, the witnesses, I saw it with my own eyes. I corroborate this is what happened.

00:13:23 --> 00:13:37

Okay. That's the idea of a witness shahada here. And that's why it doesn't just come as to believe but to declare to witness, the witness, to have

00:13:38 --> 00:13:40

it is to declare,

00:13:42 --> 00:13:47

it is to declare, and therefore becoming Muslim is a declaration isn't it?

00:13:48 --> 00:14:11

Before Allah actually, you may be Muslim inside we believe that that's between God and each person, we don't put the point the finger and say, Oh, but the way of the pseudo last lesson and what Allah requires from it is the same shift to declare. So people become Muslim by declaring in front of others. I believe there is no God but Allah, Muhammad,

00:14:12 --> 00:14:12

isn't it?

00:14:14 --> 00:14:20

That's what we understand from that. It's a declaration. So it is here and from the tongue as well.

00:14:21 --> 00:14:32

And actually, as we discussed in the last leaf more than that, and this is a debate of is Islam and becoming Muslim just about declaration from the Torah. Is it more than that?

00:14:34 --> 00:14:35

And it isn't the end.

00:14:36 --> 00:14:39

Interesting thing about the shahada, isn't it that

00:14:40 --> 00:14:50

actually, especially the non Arab speaking, but also the Arab Arab speaking, I find over the years and I've been involved in Islamic now for many years of humbling low in Allah's mercy,

00:14:51 --> 00:14:59

that how sometimes we misunderstand, and we don't even understand the shahada, actually, those many people who hold themselves believers

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

have never even contemplated what I'm saying.

00:15:03 --> 00:15:06

Even many who pray, because we say it in here, don't we?

00:15:10 --> 00:15:13

So the years we asked many people, they will know what they were saying,

00:15:14 --> 00:15:17

in the shahada, which is what makes them Muslim.

00:15:19 --> 00:15:30

Why, why, and that's how we use the easy now, because we think it's some sort of magical formula in a foreign language that makes everything alright.

00:15:32 --> 00:15:43

So therefore, when somebody converts embraced Islam, or I've seen over the years, and with some people, in some mosques, not all, some was, they get the poor guy or the poor woman,

00:15:44 --> 00:15:54

say, because they feel that they can't become Muslim, unless they say in Arabic, to say, repeat after me in a shadow, the guy stood a shadow, they can't pronounce a

00:15:56 --> 00:16:07

Yeah, because we have this idea. And they also feel sometimes that the convert, that they're seeing some sort of magical formula, which makes them Muslim,

00:16:08 --> 00:16:17

but actually what makes them Muslim is to understand what they're saying and declaring that what they're really saying, and get them to say in English or Hungarian or German, or Chinese or Russian,

00:16:19 --> 00:16:32

or Spanish or French, whatever they come from, they need to understand here and here. I declare, there is no God worthy of worship, but Allah, but the one God and I declare that Muhammad is the Messenger of God

00:16:34 --> 00:16:42

needs to be said, that's what needs to be said with understanding. Actually, if somebody says shahada in Arabic,

00:16:43 --> 00:16:47

without understanding what they're saying that they become Muslim.

00:16:48 --> 00:16:49


00:16:50 --> 00:16:51


00:16:54 --> 00:16:58

you can just say no, now you don't know what you're saying. You don't mean what you're saying.

00:17:01 --> 00:17:06

So when you understand it from that point, where you're going to say, the declaration, it won't be accepted.

00:17:08 --> 00:17:14

It won't be accepted and the acceptance is not for you and me with Allah. Because you didn't mean it.

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

I can get maybe

00:17:18 --> 00:17:26

any non Muslim to say this is how we can how do you say and they say it's how you say it should not lie. So after become Muslim when they say No, they haven't

00:17:28 --> 00:17:35

because no volition, there's no meaning for them. They didn't they didn't declare. So that's very important to understand this declaration Ibn.

00:17:36 --> 00:17:49

And that's one aspect of it. Is that right? And they don't have to do in Arabic. This is not salah, some people say okay, yeah, get them through English now get them to do in Arabic as well, because they're not problem was slim, because they want an Arabic come on.

00:17:51 --> 00:17:52

It's not salah,

00:17:54 --> 00:17:55

not Salah

00:17:56 --> 00:18:00

where there is the requirement for the Arabic

00:18:02 --> 00:18:06

or the Arabic, this is not sorry, this is declaration so it's fine. Just not so it is

00:18:08 --> 00:18:29

to do it for people because we try and holy fight as though it has to be in Arabic there. This is a declaration not to do with Holy Find anything. It's not it's not a ritual worship aspect. Somebody will even do it marriage contract, for example, they think they have to say, in Arabic,

00:18:30 --> 00:18:32

yeah, Za, West Touka

00:18:33 --> 00:18:34

be immunity.

00:18:36 --> 00:18:47

And the person acts I marry you to my daughter, so and so. And the person has to say, buried in Arabic has to say can build another build to I accept. And they say now that's a marriage.

00:18:49 --> 00:19:04

Because we think again, is like a holy decklid if not, the person needs to understand. And the person who's married needs to understand from both sides who the marine or the marine. Yeah, what do they mean when they say qabil? In my thought it meant something else.

00:19:05 --> 00:19:09

So again, the this these ideas on people's heads

00:19:11 --> 00:19:16

because of lack of understanding, really shahada,

00:19:17 --> 00:19:28

shahada to bear witness to bear witness. And really, it is more than just a declaration from the tongue and that's why we need to understand it.

00:19:29 --> 00:19:44

That's why we need to understand it for those born in Muslim families perhaps needs to be woken up and probably to understand that more than those who actually embraced Islam, because those who embraced Islam came with the eyes and ears and hearts open. Isn't that the case? Rather than sisters?

00:19:45 --> 00:19:47

In case the system sisters were in there still.

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

They did come in.

00:19:53 --> 00:19:59

That's it. Yeah, perhaps and those who are born in a Muslim family, often out of laziness.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:05

just neglect, when really thought about it, what I had declared, what does it mean to be a Muslim?

00:20:07 --> 00:20:10

Because these words are so powerful.

00:20:11 --> 00:20:18

They have so much weight on your piano. So there must be something more than just you know, saying it.

00:20:19 --> 00:20:31

Perhaps only a once in a lifetime or never in a lifetime if there's Muslim boy in the Muslim family and then never prayed. Never done that to hear that they've never said that shahada actually never even thought about it.

00:20:32 --> 00:20:33


00:20:35 --> 00:20:45

But it needs thinking about because it makes a massive difference the shahada from person, not believing in that person who believes in on the older player, massive difference.

00:20:48 --> 00:20:52

Prophesy Salam said in authentic hadith a man will be brought on the day of judgment

00:20:54 --> 00:20:59

and his deeds will be weighed on the Amazon on the scales

00:21:00 --> 00:21:04

and his deeds. bad deeds will be so heavy

00:21:06 --> 00:21:08

on the left scale, and it will be like this.

00:21:10 --> 00:21:13

Okay, and the man will be very depressed and sad.

00:21:14 --> 00:21:16

Seeing this because he knows where he's going.

00:21:17 --> 00:21:20

Then it will be set to him the prophesised on set.

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

We have for you a little bit. Tarkoff is called Hadith be topped off with our Commons a little bit of cod, small piece of cod.

00:21:30 --> 00:21:33

My grandson's telling me before I told you about long

00:21:35 --> 00:21:41

Hadith of the car, and they said and he says or what's the little car going to do?

00:21:43 --> 00:21:46

Look at look at my skills. I'm doomed.

00:21:48 --> 00:21:54

So the cop rocks Aslan, little car will put on the scale on the right side and it will go like that.

00:21:56 --> 00:21:59

And the person said, You know what is written on the card for him? It's good deed.

00:22:01 --> 00:22:07

They said what you also said shahada to Allah, Allah, Allah Allah Allah Muhammad Rasul.

00:22:08 --> 00:22:17

So you want that kind of way for your shahada, then it must have some weight in meaning and purpose. Yeah. So this declaration,

00:22:18 --> 00:22:20

it does have weight brothers.

00:22:21 --> 00:22:24

It does have weight. I go back to

00:22:25 --> 00:22:31

Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, in regards to shahada and US bearing witness and declaration.

00:22:32 --> 00:22:42

Our declaration is more than just the declaration of the Shahada. Its meaning is wider and deeper. Allah says what Cavalli Kajal uma Tom Watson

00:22:45 --> 00:23:21

was a totally tech guru shahada and nurse Punarvasu Alikum Shahida thus we have made you a people a nation, a Watson was appear as the Allah mercy of the middle path, the moderate path some of us Iran said that other said wasn't means the best people. Because it's been used like that in language as well. Yeah. The center most people can be mean the balance people it mean it can mean hydro, NASA, the best of people as well. What's up, we have made you an ummah, of the Allah does say

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

was a little cuckoo sha Allah nurse so that you can be shahada from the shahada witnesses upon human humanity?

00:23:34 --> 00:23:40

The crucial adult learners were you you're gonna receive Rasul Allah lako Shahida.

00:23:42 --> 00:23:45

As a messenger, is a witness upon you.

00:23:46 --> 00:23:49

The messenger SallAllahu Sallam came and gave his witness.

00:23:50 --> 00:24:11

He gave His message. And that's why we know from authentic hadith in his final football and the hearts he said, Have I given the message? And they said, Yes, you have delivered the message. They said, Yes, you have. And then he pointed up to Allah. And then we said, bear witness saying to Allah, I've done, I've done my witnessing.

00:24:12 --> 00:24:19

And that's why he said to those gathered, let those who are gonna now now pass on what I said to those who are not present.

00:24:21 --> 00:24:30

Yeah, so they became Shahada. And as it came to us, we become Shuhada, shahada, those who were witness

00:24:32 --> 00:24:33

those who bear witness.

00:24:36 --> 00:24:37

Shaheed actually

00:24:39 --> 00:24:42

is from the same root word.

00:24:43 --> 00:24:49

Shaheed, but he's like saying that is the ultimate witness. Yeah.

00:24:52 --> 00:24:58

Is not Shahid is Shahid, the ultimate witness. How are the ultimate witness?

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


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

The ultimate witness.

00:25:03 --> 00:25:13

Remember witness, a witness is brought because they are absolutely certain that they are seen and heard and their role as witness.

00:25:14 --> 00:25:20

The Shaheed is the ultimate witness, they are willing to lay down their life

00:25:21 --> 00:25:36

to show that I'm 100% certain that is Jana and jahannam. And I'm willing to die for it to show you the eyewitness, as though I've seen it. So that's the ultimate witness, isn't it? The one who says take my life

00:25:37 --> 00:25:41

if it means that ultimate sacrifice, yeah, that

00:25:42 --> 00:25:43

that is why it's Shaheed

00:25:44 --> 00:25:54

they are showing that witness and the prophesy sir, is witness to the fact that let you learn that Allah is one Yeah.

00:25:55 --> 00:26:21

out that Yokoyama is hot that gender is hard truth that Jahannam is truth, that the messenger true what they said that the Quran is the truth, that Allah has no Partners is a truth. This is all what we were very witness. We and it's not just in words, he do it through his life and action as the Sahaba Did you follow them and their tribe you follow them and all righteous people who followed in line will follow that

00:26:22 --> 00:26:23

isn't it?

00:26:25 --> 00:26:30

It is also that bearing witness show Allah Allah nasty humanity.

00:26:31 --> 00:26:49

You is as the Sahaba were told to now pass on to those others, our job inheriting the shahada of la ilaha illallah wa ala Muhammad Rasul Allah is to share by our life example and our words and our interactions to those who haven't received a message.

00:26:51 --> 00:26:54

Part of that that's what that means.

00:26:56 --> 00:27:04

We made you know mouth the middle path, the balanced OMA nation, so that you can be witness to witnesses to humanity.

00:27:06 --> 00:27:11

Have you seen Sayyidina Bihari also mentioned in regards to the idea

00:27:12 --> 00:27:15

that the prophesy son said on your milk Liana

00:27:17 --> 00:27:22

new Hala is Salam. And these people will be brought before Allah Subhana

00:27:23 --> 00:27:29

Allah smart Allah will ask no. Remember what state the prophets and messengers will be on that day.

00:27:31 --> 00:27:44

Neff, see Neff, see Neff. See my soul, my soul my soul, shaking and fair before Allah subhanho wa Taala even the great messengers all pointing people towards the sort of masala sort of hundreds.

00:27:46 --> 00:27:55

So no Allah Islam, can you imagine is us and he's done Tao for 952 people. We think we've done a long time.

00:27:56 --> 00:27:57

If we ever done any,

00:27:59 --> 00:28:08

he will be off. No. Did you deliver the message to your people? Who said Yeah, Allah, yes, I did. Then Allah will ask his people.

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

They will say, no messenger on water came to Earth Allah.

00:28:15 --> 00:28:18

blatantly lie, no messenger on water came to us.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:25

So no, no, Allah is stopped and asked again by Allah know, the head what they say.

00:28:27 --> 00:28:33

Have you got anybody as witness that you delivered? The message? holds? He said,

00:28:34 --> 00:28:35

the Muslims?

00:28:36 --> 00:28:37

Yeah, what does he say?

00:28:41 --> 00:28:43

No, it isn't actually it's linked with the IRS

00:28:45 --> 00:28:46

or the ISA

00:28:49 --> 00:29:07

the nation of the nation of Bahamas. So he said he says yes, I have eyewitnesses. Mohammed and his Alma Subhan Allah so Allah, see what your status is. See what our status is on the day of judgment we are brought as witness.

00:29:08 --> 00:29:46

So we will be asked, did know Allah Islam delivered the message to his people? What will we say? Yes, he did. Indeed. How do you know? Because Mohamed salah, told us through the Quran, revelation came through him. That's how we know and then the prophets are slim will bear witness to the fact that what we're saying is true. Subhana Allah. So that's linked with that as well. But that is not limited to the hereafter. That's one aspect of being Shahada. That's for the law that's given to those people on the Day of Judgment of being Omar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but if they do their role in this world,

00:29:47 --> 00:29:59

this idea is similar to the AYA, which in Surah, Ali roundwood says come to Hydra OMA or collegiately nurse that Madonna will model for your turn homeland in one car. What taught me Nona Mila.

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

So you are the best of people not full stop. You are the best of people brought out for the benefit of human beings brought forth

00:30:11 --> 00:30:25

brought forth for the benefit of human beings, hopefully deadliness. How that Marula Bill Maher roof, you stand for that which is my roof, just good, truthful you stand for it

00:30:27 --> 00:30:48

that we're a Bill Monroe what on hold, I don't care why you stand against all that which is evil, bad wrong. You take a stance by your behavior, by your words, by the way you interact with people in society, you are exemplifying that what taught me will not be learned why you believe in God.

00:30:50 --> 00:30:54

So that's the same thing. So shahada,

00:30:55 --> 00:31:05

the shahada have a much deeper and profound meaning. That's why it's so powerful, that from becoming a non Muslim, a disbeliever, a cafe, you become a Muslim.

00:31:07 --> 00:31:08

One who submits

00:31:09 --> 00:31:10

it's a big thing.

00:31:12 --> 00:31:16

It's major, in that regard, asked those who converted to Islam actually,

00:31:18 --> 00:31:20

how major it is, is not so

00:31:22 --> 00:31:26

how profound it is, ask them. And we

00:31:29 --> 00:31:41

need reminding of that. We need to remind you of that, in case we forgot to over the generations, and over the dust has settled on our hearts to be revived and to be woken up to that.

00:31:43 --> 00:31:47

Allah Ilaha illa Allah to declare that there is no God but Allah doesn't mean

00:31:48 --> 00:31:50

declared there is no God but Allah,

00:31:51 --> 00:32:01

Allah, the ILA aspect of Allah is that we don't serve and worship and submit to anyone else except God.

00:32:03 --> 00:32:05

So if my culture, if my desire

00:32:06 --> 00:32:17

if stars in the world, if anything is pulling me in that direction, away from what God wants from me, I turn from it and come back to Allah.

00:32:19 --> 00:32:37

Allah has the priority. Allah is worldly worthy of worship. I associate no partners with Allah. Let Allah Hi starts. Well, it's interesting. Oh, I've said it over the years, many times. Isn't it interesting that the declaration of Muslim begins with an amazing word?

00:32:39 --> 00:32:40

What's the first word?

00:32:41 --> 00:32:42


00:32:43 --> 00:32:48

So Allah Allah, you're going to have backbone to say no. Isn't that so?

00:32:51 --> 00:32:53

Isn't it so that the

00:32:54 --> 00:32:55

party of shaytaan

00:32:57 --> 00:33:01

wherever they have been in the world, and whatever time and place even now,

00:33:02 --> 00:33:08

the most awkward people they find overcoming a Muslim? And they say,

00:33:09 --> 00:33:15

and the ones they really want to get rid of in the world? Because they're the ones who say no.

00:33:18 --> 00:33:25

Their declaration tells them to say no straight away. So I mean, you're gonna have a hard time if somebody's saying no to you straight away.

00:33:27 --> 00:33:33

I'm not going to take you as a god. No, no, God, no. Subhanallah is revolutionary.

00:33:35 --> 00:33:36

It's revolutionary

00:33:38 --> 00:33:45

ways to revolution, the mind and the heart, to slavery to none, but to God Almighty.

00:33:46 --> 00:34:00

Who is the God of all those around as well. But we're not going to be slaves to you. We're not going to bow down to any king or queen. We didn't even bow down to our messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam, the best of creation, to do when

00:34:01 --> 00:34:14

he stopped us from bowing down to him. So why are we going to bow down to any king or queen ironical or not? We say no, only bow down to God, because that's a symbol of my submission.

00:34:17 --> 00:34:19

is profound. No god.

00:34:20 --> 00:34:38

No, God, no god in culture? No. Whether it's my culture from the Arab continent, reading continent, Indian continent, European continent, Russian continent, not that no god in culture, just because it's Europe and the white people now but Indian culture that's all right.

00:34:39 --> 00:34:41

We have this mentality as well.

00:34:43 --> 00:34:47

With All right, we're watching Bollywood film because it's important to

00:34:49 --> 00:34:59

me more fun shot there and they usually is, but English film Hollywood, in we have done not not seeing the mentality there now, but honestly, in the 70s and 80s. That's the kind of mentality

00:35:00 --> 00:35:01

Many people

00:35:03 --> 00:35:07

they will holy fire because the language and the wedding show our community sees

00:35:09 --> 00:35:10

Muslim dress

00:35:11 --> 00:35:41

I see no wearing it before Islam came there. But at least they were a bit more modest in the swag kameez wearing nowadays. God help us what's happening. So, culture, any culture that goes against what our beliefs and this is called this is called is the karma it's the Karma comes inherently from the shahada brothers. Project note is the karma means as the standings having I would best describe it as having backbone

00:35:43 --> 00:35:44

to stand your ground.

00:35:45 --> 00:35:52

In the Levina, all hoorah bone Allah wholesome Mr. Otto

00:35:53 --> 00:35:56

surely those whose who declare

00:35:58 --> 00:36:01

they say, our Lord is Allah

00:36:02 --> 00:36:11

and then they have the karma and the backbone, members stand on that. In other words, they show it in their life, if not just words and hot air.

00:36:12 --> 00:36:17

So Mr. Palmer, then angels come down that unnecessarily Valley evil Mala

00:36:18 --> 00:36:32

we want angels to come to give us blood tidings. Yeah, in the hereafter or to support us now then we must have is the karma first, yeah, some backbone, stand your ground. Don't falter. No falter.

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


00:36:37 --> 00:36:42

let Ilaha illa Allah, profound no God,

00:36:43 --> 00:36:44

but the one God

00:36:45 --> 00:36:52

no God, for us to submit to bow down to to worship to turn to to follow his love. Yeah, what he's sent

00:36:54 --> 00:36:57

except the one God, the One God.

00:36:59 --> 00:37:00

That you know,

00:37:01 --> 00:37:02


00:37:03 --> 00:37:26

And remember when we say no God, that Satan's going to interfere and shutdown doesn't always interfere with something that saw profound and big, you know, the challenge of attire ruler, or, you know, big things in customer culture shaitan works and when that lady Leila comes in, is when he works on the desires inside.

00:37:29 --> 00:37:32

Just have a drink, they're having a mix are having

00:37:33 --> 00:37:34

alcohol is

00:37:36 --> 00:38:04

all the Muslims going around saying it's no big deal. Having a spliff or whatever they call it affecting some other drugs or something it makes it doing and there was things as well. So you might as well join in as well. Otherwise, there won't be part of your mess. You know, they'll laugh at you and they do. Look at this. Look at this square geezer. He's not into any of these things he saw holy and pure. Oh, they're all going out with girls nowadays. It's fashion. What younger girlfriend?

00:38:06 --> 00:38:07

younger girlfriend.

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

So we're on with him.

00:38:12 --> 00:38:14

And this, these are, this is where

00:38:16 --> 00:38:20

a lady comes as well. And people forget this. No, God.

00:38:21 --> 00:38:29

No, God, I'm not gonna follow this. God's told me to stay away from this. So let it I love has a profound effect.

00:38:31 --> 00:38:46

And I think to remind us of that constantly the most of all, as we'll see, the first thing to remind us is Salah, and it comes straight after Sharla doesn't it for that reason? Because he's going to be a constant reminder for you to help you to have that backbone.

00:38:48 --> 00:38:52

And that's why it's part of iman why started Eman our belief.

00:38:54 --> 00:39:06

Well, Ana, Mohammad Rasool Allah, and surely to declare that Muhammad is the Messenger of God. Salallahu Alaihe Salam is so important because it's a more recent thing.

00:39:07 --> 00:39:25

More recent thing, not something that's really been known amongst analysts on our job, from centuries gone by, people never started questioning this, but ignorant people started questioning more in the last century or so about the Sunnah about the life of the prophet saw. So I mean, authentic hadith, as wasn't important.

00:39:28 --> 00:39:52

And I mentioned this last time briefly as well. People who think that Quran is in the forest, Quran is enough for us. We don't need to be there's all kinds of relief. Yeah, there is. But the science of relief from Sahabas time to this day has clarified where the nonsensical ones are and where the honest ones and the truthful ones are very early on. It's been done centuries and centuries ago. Stark is being done from Sahaba Toby in time.

00:39:54 --> 00:39:56

corroboration of that and we can tell that

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

So to get rid of that would be to get rid of Muhammad Rasool like he may

00:40:07 --> 00:40:21

just say, like, chop that off, but it has not been chopped off. He can't be chopped off. And those who want to do that, and I say that day, and they call themselves Khurana unitedly, which is really strange.

00:40:22 --> 00:40:28

The Karate young because they think we're the followers of the Quran. So what are we doing with

00:40:29 --> 00:40:44

the Quran is telling you to follow the Prophet salallahu Salam. So I say to them, they're not colonial at all. And if they're in their disrespect to the prophets are so I've removed him like a decaying tooth out and thrown it away from Allah, Allah is Allah

00:40:46 --> 00:40:47

the Quran itself?

00:40:49 --> 00:40:51

Allah, Allah, Allah is telling you something in places

00:40:52 --> 00:40:54

what I'm Salah ileka Vic

00:40:55 --> 00:41:26

to the Prophet Silestone the Quran says well Angela elite convict Lee to be in a Linda's man Lucila la him, we are sent down to you in the singular he laid convict is not talking to you or me. The Quran is saying Allah saying We have sent down to you O Muhammad sallahu wa sallam, the reminder, for what purpose lead to be eternally nurse man, Lucy lay lay him so that you can explain to humanity all humanity what has been sent down to them?

00:41:29 --> 00:41:29


00:41:31 --> 00:41:54

so perhaps they can reflect upon now. Did he need Salah so only explain to Sahaba and were so brilliant Sahaba needed explanation taby immediate explanation. Tommy Tommy needed explanation from the Hadith and state was a problem. But we were so arrogant. We don't need explanation. We can go straight to look around and we can work it out for ourselves.

00:41:55 --> 00:42:05

Just think about that is ridiculous, isn't it? Now I only need to give you that if there is enough evidence to smash those who come with that stupid idea.

00:42:07 --> 00:42:23

Well, my article Takamoto Salah Hello, Mama Anna ha come and who Fanta who? whatever the messenger gives you take it wherever he forbids you from stay away from it. The francais Quran has to be the evidence to show you that the Sunnah is what's needed

00:42:25 --> 00:42:46

because you can't use a sometimes evidence to argue with such people has to be the Quran because they claim they believe in the Quran. So I'm telling you the ground saying this to you where you're going to pray some said all that verse came in regards to war booty and at the end of it he said if he gives you from the war booty take if he stops you know, the context may be there but the idea

00:42:47 --> 00:42:54

this is a principle of understanding the ground it comes in general sense he wasn't doing it only in warfare.

00:42:55 --> 00:43:08

All the lives of cyber is absolute power. excellent example of them whatever he told him that he didn't want he said don't they didn't like arguing with him dead left right and center saying no, we're not going to do it when you find that

00:43:09 --> 00:43:09


00:43:11 --> 00:43:16

So this was a general statement. What are you lewat you Rasul?

00:43:17 --> 00:43:18

Yeah, are you Latina?

00:43:19 --> 00:43:37

O you who believe is that just for Sahaba? Are you not a believer? And you say you follow the Quran? Yeah. Are you Alladhina amanu RT Allah obey Allah wa to yield Rasul and obey His messenger I even obey His messenger you say you're following just the Quran? Oh you're waiting?

00:43:38 --> 00:43:41

Because his instructions are not there. Then the sooner

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

what you are so what will in and remain calm?

00:43:47 --> 00:43:50

Those Allah ma of knowledge amongst you

00:43:51 --> 00:44:11

for Internet that don't fish ate him for who do who ill Allah what Rasul in contempt, Muna Billahi Well, Yeoman earthen and if you'd have a dispute in any issue than others that don't feel shame, then return it back to Allah and the messenger are you referring back to Alana messenger

00:44:13 --> 00:44:26

he can't have a conversation with God directly. Now can you this step this verse is for all time to come. So how do you return it back to Allah new messenger? What does it mean? Return the argument back for clarification to the Quran.

00:44:28 --> 00:44:30

And his messenger out to the Sunnah.

00:44:31 --> 00:44:47

know they asked the Prophet now directly, Hadith because it's already said, yet obeyed people have knowledge and all of that they're the ones are going to return it back to Allah his Messenger to find more detail more clarification of the issue that they're facing.

00:44:48 --> 00:44:54

If you are believers in Allah and the Last Day then do this Suhana there is no escape from it.

00:44:56 --> 00:44:59

There's no escape from it and there's many other verses and also a hadith

00:45:00 --> 00:45:10

to corroborate that idea, and the importance of the sol, la Sol sol, sol LaSalle lower your Salam as part of the shahada

00:45:13 --> 00:45:14

as part of the shahada

00:45:18 --> 00:45:25

Subhanallah part of belief actually is requires is not verbal is it? Because actually it requires love.

00:45:28 --> 00:45:29

It requires love.

00:45:30 --> 00:45:32

So let's not listen Is mommy no nursery?

00:45:47 --> 00:46:00

Come to that will lead to another verse which says, Call in condemned to hipbone Allah, say, if you love Allah, factory own, then follow me.

00:46:01 --> 00:46:17

This is coming from the mother prophesy, son, the verse is being sent to him, but today only and follow me. Your Bitcoin Allah we have to look on the robot from Allah for Rahim Allah we love you and forgive you your sins are lies of giving most merciful

00:46:19 --> 00:46:21

or forgiving, Most Merciful

00:46:31 --> 00:46:33

and the other verse in the Quran, just

00:46:34 --> 00:46:39

amongst people are those who love others besides Allah as they should love Allah

00:46:41 --> 00:46:50

will Lavina Ahmed who ushered to who Bonilla whereas those who believe they are even stronger in della firewall.

00:46:52 --> 00:46:55

Stronger in dialogue so Eman actually means love.

00:46:56 --> 00:47:12

This equality of it. It's not the declaration is must you can see from the very fact that requires Love of Allah not just verbal profession and then make a joke of love of Allah love of his messenger while the prophesy Salam also said

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

lie you

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

lie you know

00:47:19 --> 00:47:19


00:47:21 --> 00:47:23

you're gonna have by the lady

00:47:25 --> 00:47:29

Hakuna hubba delay him in quality he were one of the one that

00:47:31 --> 00:47:37

none of you truly believes as this Eman until I become more love to them

00:47:39 --> 00:47:40

than that parents

00:47:42 --> 00:47:43

then the children

00:47:44 --> 00:47:46

then more all of humanity put together.

00:47:48 --> 00:47:50

So this is the proper assassin

00:47:52 --> 00:47:56

that is part of the shahada when we say nice another Muhammad Allah so

00:47:57 --> 00:48:12

he's a mission and actually, actually, in that shahada, in that shahada, all the rest of the articles of faith that we say are six to do with messengers, leaving them meaning and prophesy some mean believing in the messengers.

00:48:14 --> 00:48:22

Yeah, it's insane hear it in the Shahada. Believing in the book is inherently believing in Allah new messenger because he brought the Quran

00:48:24 --> 00:48:27

and the ground tells you about the previous messengers and the books.

00:48:28 --> 00:48:33

It means believing in angels inherent in the shahada is already there.

00:48:34 --> 00:48:42

The belief in angels could Gibreel is the one bringing revelation and the link between Allah Allah messenger was Gibreel

00:48:44 --> 00:48:51

Ali Salam also. So believe in melodica is believing in Allah means your will. Yama is already there.

00:48:53 --> 00:49:09

Belief in the old town and public mall intertwine in belief in Allah and His messenger so shahada actually actually actually incorporates all the articles of faith in any way. But they're there clarify further in the Quran

00:49:11 --> 00:49:13

to these people you're talking about

00:49:15 --> 00:49:15


00:49:16 --> 00:49:19

they're not believe they're the amongst the prophets. Do not believe that.

00:49:21 --> 00:49:40

Yeah, they do. They do. They claim all that. They claim that claim that or not. It's a movement that started in India, Pakistan, the pervasive they call themselves out, and there was some invade, some in the Middle East as well. More recently. More recently, you've got people are ignorant of Hadith. So it's a movement that's catching more.

00:49:43 --> 00:49:59

In academia, academia kind of says Muslims involved in universities here in the Western Europe and America, they fall for this kind of thing, because they see Hadith like gospels, and I've explained to you before many times, that it's not nothing more nonsensical than comparing

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

He's the gospel, absolute nonsense. And when they come up with that idea and then they go down this dangerous road, so

00:50:08 --> 00:50:09


00:50:11 --> 00:50:18

here we have been prophesized to them saying after the declaration of a farmers salah, what you tell us occur,

00:50:19 --> 00:50:20

word Sameera Ramadan?

00:50:22 --> 00:50:25

Who are sorry, where have you been with Sami?

00:50:31 --> 00:50:35

I'm thinking whether I should finish this within 10 minutes, I'm not going to

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

leave it till the next session

00:50:45 --> 00:50:46

wants to have us finished,

00:50:47 --> 00:51:01

or you want to finish the clock? And I know I've got to do we can do that, that we'd less than I wanted to do 20 minutes before he could read less than as well. Stop at logical point, a stop at a logical point. Yeah.

00:51:03 --> 00:51:24

Anyway, what we've covered so far will give you time for question and answer I'll leave those things. Because I want to mention with each thing something about their obligation. So take a bit of time, because some people actually have questions about salah for example. And they say that it is not obligatory five times a day.

00:51:25 --> 00:51:34

All right, so I want to deal with that issue. Next time in Shaba. All kinds of thing got peddled around, okay? And you need to you need to be aware of it. Because

00:51:36 --> 00:52:13

there may be a distance where they may come close to home, because these people don't get the ideas on the internet. And then children, if it's not our own children and grandchildren say and you'll be facing, I assure you, you will, as we face all kinds of ideas that people pick up. So we need to be aware of where this idea comes from, and what is the counter to it, Inshallah, we'll deal with it next time. I left you last time with the idea of five daily prayers made obligatory from the Quran. And I'll certainly give it up for a room mentioned it in two places. I will deal with all those verses.

00:52:16 --> 00:52:19

Yeah, but I assure you, it is not in the

00:52:21 --> 00:52:22


00:52:23 --> 00:52:49

Some people tried to say some of us they don't try to say, but they're really stretching it to try and the obligation of Salah is in the Quran. The obligation to pray five times a day on the come from above this is on some. And that's why do I say it because that's why sunnah so important. That's why I say to those people who say chronic noon, and that's why some of them actually pray three times a day.

00:52:51 --> 00:53:04

They even broke the very Iijima of the Ummah, when it's very clear that prayer for Muslims is five daily prayers, not three times a day. Okay. That's the best they can get pull up.

00:53:05 --> 00:53:22

Any questions on what we've covered today? In five minutes, on the Hadith that we mentioned about the man whose deeds will be weighed? Yes, and his bad deeds. Hi, high man, his shahada goes into the other escape.

00:53:24 --> 00:53:38

I can't remember the whole Hadith now. But my understanding was that the inference was that he didn't have much of good deeds. But it was said to him, would you have something with us, which is the Shahada? So the

00:53:39 --> 00:53:47

one I wanted to ask was that if somebody has strong Eva, she is going to weigh heavily on the scale.

00:53:48 --> 00:53:51

Would we expect that to manifest itself in

00:53:52 --> 00:53:54

his limbs and his good actions?

00:53:55 --> 00:53:56

That is true.

00:53:57 --> 00:54:01

And therefore any Hadith like that mustn't be taken out of context.

00:54:03 --> 00:54:15

The idea of that isn't do as much but as you want you got the shahada will be final. And I've explained that in many sessions before to you is given an example really to show you how heavy

00:54:17 --> 00:54:23

the shahada is, yet his belief I can give you a D for people who

00:54:24 --> 00:54:25

didn't even believe in God

00:54:26 --> 00:54:27

and ALLAH forgive them.

00:54:29 --> 00:54:34

Yeah, so a level we have from a hadith examples of people who can be forgiven that we can't imagine.

00:54:35 --> 00:54:39

But we're not going to go down that road because they were forgiven. They will tell me,

00:54:40 --> 00:54:59

Rahim Allah the great Scheffel Islam, he mentioned Hadith he said, How can I point the finger at any particular individual How about they are because as all all amount of knowledge agreed, including him, that we are not able to say about any shots more I in particular person, go far.

00:55:00 --> 00:55:04

included, yeah, that this person is going to help.

00:55:06 --> 00:55:10

Because the prophesies warned us about that actually, from doing.

00:55:11 --> 00:55:19

He said, so even Tony said, and there's no have you found the time that we mentioned before. First, you think how can I say about any particular person?

00:55:20 --> 00:55:33

What he's saying is we are not in a position to be judged on behalf of God leave it to Allah. But how can I say, because on the Day of Judgment, the Prophet says to himself, a man will be broke before Allah.

00:55:34 --> 00:55:35

What was this man this man

00:55:37 --> 00:55:41

didn't do an any except to his family.

00:55:43 --> 00:55:44

Before he died,

00:55:45 --> 00:55:48

he hadn't done any iota of good deed.

00:55:50 --> 00:55:58

So he said, When I die, my children, my family, burned my body, scatter half my ashes on the sea and half on the land.

00:56:00 --> 00:56:02

This way you do and that's what they did.

00:56:03 --> 00:56:13

On the Day of Judgment, the prophets Allah will bring all those ashes that were scattered everything back together and form him again and resurrect him and say, Why do you do that?

00:56:14 --> 00:56:16

You said your Allah was scared of your punishment.

00:56:21 --> 00:56:35

That was a lesson from that isn't you and I go and do that is it that's showing the vaster was Allah's mercy, and that he is going to judge in the end. Not only are our instructions our guidance has been given from Allah and His Messenger
